Expect to see 900 cars at Cruise-In
Following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on the U.S. then-Langley City fire chief Jim McGregor wrote Climb Higher, a poem paying tribute to the 343 firefighters who lost their lives in the attempt to save others. This weekend, fire departments across North America will mark the 10th anniversary of the tragedy and honour their colleagues’ acts of heroism.
Climb higher Keep on climbing, says the Captain, Up through the smoke and smell; Keep on climbing, says the Captain, I think I heard somebody yell! Keep on climbing, says the Captain, Alive or dead, Not ours to tell. Keep on climbing, calls the Captain, Forget about your pain! Keep on climbing, shouts the Captain, We have a few more stairs to gain. Keep on climbing, yells the Captain, We will bring them down again. Keep on climbing, cries the Captain, If I can so can you. Keep on climbing, orders the Captain, Right now, I need your best from you. Keep on climbing, screams the Captain, Forget about those sounds. It’s just some girders twisting, and some concrete falling down. Keep on climbing, whispers the Captain, Climb right up to that light! Right up to that sunshine, No smoke to smell, no fire to fight. Keep on climbing, sings the Captain, That angel’s hand will lead the way. Rest boys, sighs the Captain, You did your job today. Keep on climbing, prays Our Captain, Eyes raised, headed for the top. And when you’re tired and feel like quitting, remember them, they did not stop. — Jim McGregor

Langley Good Times Cruise-In president Riccardo Sestito expects there will be at least 900 cars on display at this year’s Cruise-In, set for Saturday. “We are going crazy with registrations,” he said Tuesday, attributing that to the good weather predicted for the weekend and the early registration deadline. All volunteers are in place and preparations are underway for the event. He and other directors are dealing with a host of last-minute details as they prepare to put on the show — the first since 2009. “We are expecting a huge crowd,” he said, noting that people traditionally flock to the event when the weather is good. There is also a sense of anticipation as a result of Cruise-In being cancelled in 2010. Cars will be on display throughout the Langley City downtown area all day on Saturday. They will be along Fraser Highway from 203 to 206 Streets, on Douglas Crescent, on 204 Street, and along 56 Avenue east of Glover Road. Some of the most unique cars will be on display at the Concours d’Elegance in Douglas Park. There will be entertainment, food, Cruise-In memorabilia and the ability to win various prizes, including an ultimate garage for the home mechanic. A motorcycle show, pin-up contest and custom car side show and marketplace will also be part of Saturday’s event. On Saturday, there will be free parking at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s parking lot, with a free shuttle bus taking visitors down to the show. On Sunday, there will be a swap meet at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s parking lot. The show is a non-profit venture, with all proceeds going to local charities. Sestito is hopeful that this year will set new records, in attendance, cars on display and funds raised for charity.

Langley firefighters observed a moment of silence on Sept. 11, 2003, during a ceremony to mark the two-year anniversary of the U.S. terror attacks. This Sunday, firefighters in both the City and Township will mark the 10th anniversary with ceremonies outside their respective halls. The public is welcome to attend.
Ten years since 9-11 Fire depts host ceremonies to mark anniversary of terror attacks BRENDA ANDERSON Staff reporter
As Sunday morning dawns on the West Coast, it will mark 10 years to the hour since the tragedy of 9-11 began, as 19 terrorists took control of four commercial airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field, killing nearly 3,000 people and injuring another 6,000. And though a decade has passed since that sunny, late summer morning in September, 2001, memories of the grief and horror of that day remain, as do recollections of the singular acts of heroism and self-sacrifice they spawned. On Sunday afternoon, the City of Langley Fire Department will mark the sombre anniversary
with a ceremony outside the hall on 203 Street, beginning at 1 p.m. “It’s turning into a pretty formal affair,” said assistant chief Pete Methot. The service, which he expects will run about half an hour, will include a piper and colour party as well as remarks from Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender and MLA Mary Polak. The public is welcome to join them, Methot said, in recognizing the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks which killed 343 firefighters from New York City and the surrounding boroughs, and drew rescue service personnel from across the continent to Ground Zero to help in their aftermath. While many people may choose to travel to the U.S.
border south of Abbotsford, to participate in an international service, Methot said the department felt it would be appropriate to hold a ceremony closer to home. “We wanted to do something. There’s a larger ceremony at Sumas, but it’s important that the crew on duty is involved in something to mark the 10-year anniversary,” he said. The Township of Langley fire department, meanwhile, will hold a small service outside Hall 6 in Murrayville, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Chief Stephen Gamble will attend and members of the Langley RCMP have been invited to take part as well. The public is also welcome to come and pay their respects. The Sumas ceremony begins at 10 a.m.

CONCUSSIONS AND POST-CONCUSSION SYNDROME It was big news when NHL superstar Sidney Crosby â€“ whose over-time goal scored hockey gold for Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympics â€“ recently suffered a concussion in a hockey game. Though prominent, he is just one of several highprofile sports figures to suffer serious consequences following a head injury â€“ â€œmild traumatic brain injuryâ€? (MTBI) â€“ that is often poorly understood. But one benefit from Crosbyâ€™s misfortune is that it has led to media and Internet discussion of the potential consequences of a concussion (sometimes called â€œpost-concussion syndromeâ€?), which has helped clear up some misconceptions. For instance, there need not be a physical injury or blow to the head â€“ a concussion can be brought about by severe or abrupt jarring or shaking of the head, e.g., the head snapping or whipping back or sideways. Also, the victim need not black out or lose consciousness, and may initially feel and seem okay, even to first-responders at the scene or in the emergency room. But the consequences of a concussion can be severe and sometimes long-lasting or even permanent. And the effects of several concussions are cumulative, so itâ€™s critical to allow enough time for full recovery. One little known fact is that most cases of concussion or MTBI occur not in the sports arena but in motor vehicle accidents. The Courts in B.C. accept the best current medical views of concussion and post-concussion syndrome, if proved by credible evidence. But they are on guard against exaggerated or fake claims. And the defendant in a lawsuit (ICBC in car collision cases) will often try to show exaggeration or fakery. Take the 2010 B.C. Supreme Court case involving Mr. M, a 37-year old operations and fleet-manager of a trucking business. He was a passenger in a vehicle struck on the side where he sat. The other driver was fully at fault. The damage to both cars was

North Langley Canadiansâ€™ Brendan Peterson is all smiles as he rounds second base after hitting a home run. The team of 12-year-olds was at the famed Cooperstown Dreams Park in New York last week for the Cooperstown Classic. North Langley was one of just 15 Canadian teams among the 1,274 teams competing. The Canadians went 3-4.
relatively minor, but the impact caused Mr M. to be pushed into the corner (he was wearing his seatbelt) and his head and neck to be pinched and angled in an awkward position. He felt sick and dizzy, the pain in his head was excruciating and his back and neck hurt, and he was taken to hospital. Before the accident, Mr. M had been energetic, great at multi-tasking and routinely put in long hours at work. He had an easy-going manner, was socially engaged and enjoyed an active outdoororiented lifestyle. All this changed dramatically in the years after the car accident. He suffered severe headaches, different from the sinus-type headaches he experienced before. He had problems with his vision, concentration, short-term memory and balance. He could mostly only work for a few hours at a time, and often he would have to stop work and go to a quiet, dark room to rest. As to his personality, he became abrupt, short-tempered and aggressive. In short, the accident caused him serious and permanent injuries, in the form of MTBI, affecting his ability to work and most other aspects of his life. The Court dismissed as unhelpful video-tape evidence introduced by ICBC to suggest that Mr. M exaggerated his problems. It accepted medical evidence that he suffered from the consequences of the concussion endured in the car accident. This was not disproved simply because hospital emergency room staff noted no confusion or loss of consciousness. He was awarded $110,000 for pain and suffering and $650,000 for loss of future earning capacity.

JOHN HORACE OUGHTON
Implants “the best solution for missing teeth”
‘Paper bag rapist’ to get another chance at parole DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
John Horace Oughton may not be treatable, but the man known as the paper bag rapist is still entitled to a parole review. Oughton was declared a dangerous offender in 1986 after he admitted to sexually assaulting more than 140 women and children during a 10-year rampage that included Burnaby, Langley and other Metro Vancouver communities. Prison spokesperson Kelsey Hymander confirmed Oughton will get a review sometime in mid-September once officials at Mountain Institution in Agassiz have completed an assessment and filed their report with the National Parole Board. The 61-year-old former hot tub salesman was nicknamed the “paper bag rapist” for his habit of placing coverings over his face or the faces of his victims. Two were from Langley. In April, 1985, the 11-yearold friends were taking a short cut through the Langley Civic Centre grounds at 42 Avenue and 208 Street when they were lured into tall grass by Oughton. Under Canadian law, a person declared a dangerous offender is
jailed with no release date but is entitled to a review of parole eligibility every two years. A previous parole assessment found Oughton was essentially untreatable. “Your dangerous maladaptive personality structure is so entrenched and widespread that you are unsuitable for any currently available psychiatric treatment” the parole board report stated. “No intervention exists to reduce your very high risk to reoffend.” Oughton hasn’t participated in his parole hearings since his disastrous appearance in 2003 when he was wrestled to the ground and handcuffed. The hearing before three National Parole Board members bogged down over Oughton’s complaint that he had been given insufficient notice of the hearing. The board briefly adjourned the hearing and when it resumed, informed Oughton that it would proceed. There are strict rules governing the behavior of prisoners at hearings, and Oughton broke one of them when he stood up and turned towards the small gallery where five of his victims were seated.
It appeared that he was trying to make for the exit which would have brought him within feet of his victims. When a guard moved to stop him, Oughton, who was not shackled or handcuffed, became belligerent. It took the guard, a parole officer and a Langley RCMP officer to subdue him. Oughton was handcuffed and escorted out of the room. The hearing resumed without Oughton present and his parole was denied. At the time, the father of one of the Langley victims said Oughton’s right to a regular hearing subjects his whole family to more anxiety and inconvenience. His daughter will bear the scars of her ordeal forever, he said. “It never goes away. It’s an ugly chapter in our life, and we just have to deal with it,” he said. In 1999, when he was still trying to convince authorities he’d reformed, Oughton registered a book he’d written with the National Library of Canada titled “Mountain thoughts: an inmate’s journey towards selfknowledge.” It does not appear to have been published.

Revised Mufford overpass plans to be unveiled at open house FRANK BUCHOLTZ Times Reporter
An open house on plans for the revised rail overpass at Mufford Crescent and 64 Avenue will be held next Tuesday and Wednesday. The new plans for the rail overpass were developed by the ministry of transportation as a replacement for the planned overpass that would have linked 64 Avenue on both sides of the railway tracks. The overpass project would have included a new road from near the Costco at 64 Avenue and Willowbrook Connector to 64 Avenue east of Glover Road. It would have
crossed farmland, and was rejected by the Agricultural Land Commission as being too intrusive on ALR land. Blair T r a n s p o r t a - Lekstrom tion Minister Blair Lekstrom announced in July that plans for the new overpass had been completed. However, no details were revealed at that time. The ministry has been consulting with area land owners and government officials on the plans, and will unveil its revised plan at the open houses. The ministry took over respon-
sibility for the project from the Township, after the rejection of the earlier plans. The overpass project is to be funded as part of the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor program, which includes funds from all levels of government, as well as the railways, Port Metro Vancouver and TransLink. The Mufford overpass project was initially budgeted at just over $50 million. The overall program is to cost over $307 million. The open house will be held at Langley Golf and Banquet Centre, 21550 44 Avenue, from 3 to 7 p.m. on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Langley leg of a crossCanada cycling tour to raise money for children with cancer got off to a slow start Wednesday. The riders in the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride relay lost their police escort first thing in the morning, after the officers were called away to a reported armed robbery. Then a wonky GPS system got them separated from their lead vehicle, a large C-class motor home that serves as an emergency repair station. Without the big RV and police
to clear their path, the riders had to make their way through morning rush hour traffic to their Langley destination by themselves. Despite the problems, the cyclists were no more than 30 minutes behind schedule when they pulled into the Willowbrook Sears parking lot, to be greeted by local riders and Township Mayor Rick Green. Two large semi-trailer trucks were also waiting for them. They will serve as overnight accommodations for the more than 40 riders, who will sleep on spartan temporary bunks built of unpainted two-by-fours and plywood.
The ride is scheduled to end in Halifax 16 days later, on Sept. 22. Riding in relays, each national team rider will cycle about 165 kilometres a day, visiting many of the pediatric cancer centres the event supports. The event has raised more than $2.5 million over the last two years. The annual ride is run by the Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation, with sponsorship by Sears Canada and other businesses who cover administration and promotion expenses, to ensure that 100 per cent of the money raised goes directly to fund research and support programs for kidsâ€™ cancer.

After a black bear invaded the back yard of a Langley home last week, two provincial conservation officers set up a humane trap in a bid to capture and possibly relocate the wayward bruin. The officers swept the area near 206 Street and 98 Avenue Wednesday afternoon (Aug. 31) after Walnut Grove resident Rob Snazel was surprised by what he described as a full-grown bear exploring the fenced-off yard where his three-year-old son was playing just minutes earlier. The bear was less than two metres away from the open entrance to the ground floor suite where his son and one-year-old daughter were, Snazel said. All the windows were open at the time. Snazel and an adult visitor hastily relocated the children upstairs and called 911. One of the conservation officers, James Kelly, told The Times he and his colleague hoped to force the bear up a tree where it could be safely hit with a tranquilizer dart, but were unable to accomplish that. The trap the officers left was designed to catch the bear unharmed. Kelly said once the bear has been captured it will be assessed for relocation. â€œThat will depend on its history,â€? Kelly said. Snazel said there have been several close encounters with the bear in the residential neighbourhood in recent weeks and the animal appeared to be getting less timid about foraging through back yards in broad daylight. At the very least, Snazel said, there should have been a bear warning notice posted around a childrenâ€™s playground next to the green belt where the bear appears to be living. Snazel said he hopes the bear can be relocated before authorities have to shoot it. On Aug. 16, an Langley RCMP officer was forced to shoot and kill a bear cub in another north Langley neighbourhood when it became aggressive.

Cruise-In is back
Watch out for kids
he Langley Good Times Cruise-In is back, and the sense of eagerness and anticipation is high in the community. Cruise-In has been a big event in Langley since it first began 14 years ago. It has come a long ways since that first show, and now attracts 100,000 people or more. It also brings with it lots of good feelings. Last year, there was no CruiseIn. The directors were tired after the 2009 event, largely because of illegal street racing and negativity from a few people in the downtown community. However, even when they announced that it would not take place in 2010, they held out hope that it would resume in 2011. And they have kept their promise. After some discussions with police and the City of Langley, they decided to bring the popular car show back. One of the biggest changes this year is the cancellation of the Friday night cruise to the Twilight Drive-In in Aldergrove. There are a number of reasons for this, but the biggest single one is that Cruise-In directors did not want to be associated with any car activity on Friday night. There has often been illegal street racing on Friday evenings, and some situations have been extremely dangerous. Weather this weekend is expected to be good. There will almost certainly be car enthusiasts gathering on Friday night in areas of Langley, and a small number will take part in racing or other illegal activity. They have been warned. Police plan to be out in force and the consequences for car owners may be significant. They will almost certainly lose their cars, at least temporarily, and hopefully there will be enough witnesses that they can be charged with serious offences. The actions of a few do not reflect on the wonderful atmosphere of Cruise-In. Saturday is the day when all the vehicles will be on display. The atmosphere in Langley City will be great. There will be free entertainment, lots to eat, fascinating cars to check out, new people to meet and all kinds of other tidbits of activity. It’s a great day for the community, and we are all looking forward to it.

hile the sunny skies and warm temperatures might have us thinking of a few last summer activities to squeeze into our schedules, we shouldn’t be too quick to gloss over the arrival of September — and with it the return of schoolchildren on our streets and sidewalks. Children are heading back to school this week, and drivers are reminded to use extra caution as they head out on the road this week. Every year in B.C., an average of more than 16,000 children between the ages of five and 18 are involved in crashes, resulting in 5,215 injuries and 34 deaths. Many youngsters will be heading off to school for the first time, while others will be caught up in the excitement of seeing friends for the first time since school let out for the summer. Drivers should keep this in mind and be alert to the possibility of children darting out into traffic. Drivers are also asked to leave a little extra time to reach their destination, and to always watch out for pedestrians when backing up. The 30 km/h school zones are back in effect from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, and drivers are urged to be aware that vehicles stopped in front of or beside you may be yielding for a pedestrian. When dropping off children in a school zone, parents should have them exit on the side nearest the sidewalk. Parents should also sit down with their children to stress the importance of safety on the way to and from school. It is also recommended that students put away their MP3 players, phones and other gadgets so they can focus their full attention on the road. We all have a role to play to ensure this school year isn’t marred by tragedy. — Penticton Western News The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Time to set up private learning Editor: Re: “Rocky start expected for new school year,” (The Times, Sept 1). What’s to stop the teachers from breaking free from the traditional school system and working to create contracts privately with families in their homes?? We all know the school system needs a lot of work. It needs updating in the area of academics standards, as well as incorporation of new concepts and techniques that society needs to teach children. Perhaps it would be easier and better for all to set up their own learning systems with B.C.-certified teachers. I hear a common thread among parents of young children nowadays. They are already seeking out alternative opportunities for learning for their kids — preferring to not even deal with the government-regulated school
system as it is. Home schooling or Distance Learning Centres, some offering social programs, are now becoming viable options for parents, their children and teachers. At least this way we can avoid the unnecessary restriction and barriers that these regulations can incur. Underpaid, unhappy B.C. teachers equals a compromised learning environment for our kids. This creates a wedge between the parents, teachers and student. Is this the environment we want to submit our children to day after day? It’s nothing short of shoving our young into the tense environment of a military battlefield atmosphere. My point is that this announcement does nothing more than put more fuel to the fire of
the ever-increasing concerns we have about our broken school system. How about it teachers? Let’s get back to the original idea of fulfilling and influencing childrens’ lives, and drop the system altogether. Let’s get rid of the bureaucracy and focus on the original intention for school: Positively moulding our young ones into capable, independent, responsible human beings — without the BS. I ask again: What’s to stop the teachers and parents from setting up group learning environments through homes chooling or Distributed Learning Centres, privately, between parents, their children and teachers? I think it’s the next logical step. R. Bessette, Langley
Supt. Cooke’s letter cited for ‘misinformation’ Editor: After reading Superintendent Derek Cooke’s submission to The Times (Aug. 23), headlined “Many problems with Langley dispensary,” I felt compelled to write and dispel some of the misconceptions contained in his letter. When the Langley Medical Marijauna Dispensary (LMMD) opened two years ago, it employed some admittedly questionable operating practices. However in the past year, the dispensary has evolved into a safe and convenient place for patients to receive their dosage. In his letter, Supt. Cooke says “There was no requirement that conventional treatment for the customer’s ailment had been tried, or even considered.” This is misleading, as it is not a Health Canada requirement and normally doctors always do recommend conventional treatments prior to suggesting alternatives, such as marijuana. Supt. Cooke suggested in his letter that the dispensary was serving anyone and not limiting its sales to people with a genuine medical
need. This is not true. Patients who utilized the dispensary had forms signed by their doctors to support their use of medical marijuana. If paperwork from their doctor supporting their medical exemption was not completed, their membership was suspended. In addition, many of Langley MMD clients have their Health Canada MMAR (Medical Marijauna Access Regulations) license number and are authorized to grow their own supply, but used the dispensary as an alternative. Supt. I find it ironic that in his Derek letter, the superintendent sugCooke gested that people who have a license should grow their own supply, when in March of this year he denounced legal ‘grows’ as a real headache for local RCMP. “There have been several invasions and armed robberies of these legal marijuana farms
Take licences away and seize their cars
‘Gang of six’ at fault for high tax increases Editor: Re: Robert Moats’ letter “Ferguson attempts to rewrite history,” (The Times, Sept. 6). He took the words right out of my mouth. In attempting to laud Jordan Bateman and rewrite history, Councillor Steve Ferguson has conveniently ignored the facts. “Never let facts get in the way of a good story.” The facts The
over the past year,” he said. Supt. Cooke expressed concern that “customers’ were not screened for having a criminal record. This implies that the patients utilizing the dispensary may have been, for the most part, criminals. A criminal records check is not a requirement by Health Canada, nor should it be. However, as a result of the closure, Langley MMD patients are again forced to make connections with those (criminals?) who would put their health and safety at risk. In so many ways, Langley has stepped up to make the community a safe and secure place to live, work and play — until now. Patients of the Langley Medical Marijuana Dispensary are members of this community and they are entitled to feel safe and secure. And it is up to Supt. Cooke and the local RCMP to uphold Supreme Court of Canada rulings that allow dispensaries to operate. Delila Poore, Langley
Editor: So what are these 21-year-old (and under) kids doing driving around in cars that cost almost as much as my mortgage? And half of them are ‘new’ drivers. The penalty — $196. Those ‘new’ drivers should lose their licences. If I’m caught driving under the influence, I can lose my licence. I am assuming that the money for most of these
are, the “gang of six” is pretty much solely responsible for the outrageous tax increases we Township property owners have been stuck with since they got elected. Hopefully we will have two “Remembrance Days” this November. Win Bromley, Langley
vehicles came from overseas, and this is what makes it wrong. Take the licences away, forfeit the cars, and make the parents pay. Someone could have been killed — either one of the drivers, or an innocent participant in a celebration that was dangerous to everyone. Where do we draw the line? Debbie Atkinson, Langley
SALMON STOPPED Editor: Imagine my consternation, while walking my dogs in the Aldergrove off-leash park, to find the GVRD parks department has filled in a salmon stream with rocks, stopping salmon migrating to spawn. The band of “workers” who did this are either ignorant or arrogant regarding B.C.’s and Langley Township’s commitment to preservation of natural habitat. I further question the Township’s lack of oversight concerning the GVRD’s action, I feel it is time the taxpayers received value for payments to the GVRD. Enhancement, not destruction, is my choice. I would rather not comment on the inanity of the “poop scoop shovel” program the GVRD is instituting, I cannot restrain the laughter. Terry Brenan, Aldergrove
NO PUNISHMENT Editor: Now that we have had enquiries and debates regarding the Vancouver riots, the result is they blame no one. The same holds true with road racing crimes. Would somebody please tell me what we are going to do about it? We have done what we sadly do best — discuss and debate. Apparently punishment is something we shy away from. We can put police on every corner, and it won’t make a bit of difference,unless we have some enforcement. I am afraid our Canadian “justice” system has proven to be toothless, and totally impotent. Apparently punishment and blame have become dirty words. It wasn’t always that way. We have a wonderful country, but somewhere along the way we lost our guts, and the will to enforce anything. Let’s hope things change real soon. David J. Standcumbe, Langley

ast July, a group of six Langley women who range in age from early boomer to 77 years old, returned home from the equestrian adventure of a lifetime. Rita Rawstron, Donna Morris, Reta Eddleston, Barb Ellis, Susan Chaworth-Musters and Lilian Ewen, who met through the Langleybased Vintage Riders club, spent a fascinating three weeks exploring Ireland by bus and by horseback. Because they spent months researching stables, accommodation and transportation instead of signing up for an organized tour, the cost of the experience was a relatively modest $5,000 per person, including airfare. After arriving in Dublin, they checked into a 300-year old stone lodge operated by the An Sibin Riding Centre in County Clare. They were happy with the quality of horses and safety standards maintained by the Irish stable operators they rode with, with one exception — a ride that took them through busy city streets on horses they had just met under supervision of only one guide, who rode at the front of the dude string. “We learned one question to ask before you choose a stable: how many guides do they have. You absolutely need a guide at the back as well as the front of the group to keep an eye on things. One ride we went on even had a resident farrier. I would also suggest that you contact people by phone in addition to doing Internet research,” said Reta. Although equestrian tourism opportunities, available in a growing number of countries in Europe, are marketed to novice riders, the Langley group felt a solid walk, trot, and canter is a must. Most of the women are experienced riders, but one described herself as a late bloomer lacking in confidence. For Donna, the Irish adventure was a “trial by fire” as she puts it. “I’m used to hanging onto horses for dear life, and this

Autumn is around the corner and soon the fall air will be filled with the familiar smell of smoke and burning leaves. And it had better be coming from properties with proper burning permits. The Township of Langley Fire Department is issuing permits for open air burning from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31. However, burning is only allowed if certain land size and geographic requirements are met — and if the weather cooperates. “We are trying to be proactive in our approach,” said Assistant Fire Chief Pat Walker, who realizes landowners depend on burning as a relatively easy, inexpensive way to rid their yards of debris, but knows the resulting smoke can be irritating to neighbours. “There is a need for burning, but we also need to respect people who have health conditions and breathing issues,” he said. “Certain atmospheric conditions are required to burn, to prevent damage to the environment and to ensure the comfort of others.” Residents who want to pur-

chase an incidental outdoor burning permit for yard and garden clean-up must have property that is half an acre or larger, and a fire department site inspection is required. Burning is not allowed and permits are not issued for the urban areas of Aldergrove, Brookswood, Fort Langley, Murrayville, Walnut Grove, and Willoughby. Household and building materials, furniture, garbage, and tires cannot be burned, only natural vegetation such as leaves, branches, and plants. Incidental outdoor burning permits can be purchased for $20 from the Township’s Civic Facility, Fire Hall 6 in Murrayville, the Operations Centre, or at the Aldergrove, W.C. Blair, Walnut Grove, or Willoughby Community Centres. Those who have property that is 4.2 acres or larger and want to do land clearing must meet Metro Vancouver and Waste Management requirements, and ensure the weather is favourable, according to the air quality index. Land clearing permits, which can be revoked if atmospheric conditions change, are

$100 and can only be issued at Fire Hall 6 in Murrayville. Only indigenous material such as brush, slash, and grass can be burned. Construction waste, plastic, and dimensional lumber cannot be burned, and a 15-day break must occur between each 72-hour burning period. Special burning permits can also be issued for agricultural purposes — such the eradication of weeds, pests, and damaged or diseased crops — and for religious or ceremonial events. All other backyard burning, including fires for cooking and the burning of garbage, is not allowed. Walker said Township firefighters hope to educate the public about burning conditions, the type of material that can be burned, and the need for proper permits, but will ticket and fine those in violation.
