Board endorses deal, residents unhappy
Langley population on the rise FRANK BUCHOLTZ Times Reporter
Langley Township grew faster proportionally than the Metro Vancouver area, according to the 2011 census. Statistics Canada released the first data from the census, which was conducted last June, on Wednesday. The population of the Township, as of June, 2011, was 104,177, up from 93,726 in 2006. This is an increase of 11.2 per cent. The population of the Greater Vancouver area grew by 9.3 per cent in that period, to 2,313,328 from 2,116,581. Most of that growth took place in cities outside Vancouver itself. Langley City also grew, but at a more modest pace. The City population jumped from 23,606 in 2006 to 25,081 in 2011, an increase of 6.2 per cent. Neighbouring Surrey continued to be one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Its population jumped 18.6 percent from 2006 to 2011, from 394,976 to 468,251. Vancouver’s population grew much more slowly, from 578,041 to 603,502, an increase of 4.4 per cent. B.C.’s population was up seven per cent from 2006 to 2011, and the total population of Canada at the time of the 2011 census was 33,476,688, up from 31,612,897 in 2006. That is an increase of 5.9 per cent.

Routley school ruled out — for now Bylaw closes controversial application NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
Hoping to appease residents who want an elementary school in their neighbourhood, Langley Township council gave final reading on Monday to a bylaw that rezones approximately 14 acres in the 19800 block of 70 Avenue that includes a portion for a school. Part of the property had
been zoned institutional for a school, but in a land swap that involved the Langley School District, the Township and a developer, the school site would have vanished. Adoption of the bylaw paves the way for the construction of 103 townhouses. The bylaw adoption frees the school district to build a school in the Yorkson neighbourhood, and retains a site for a small school in the Routley neighbourhood of Willoughby. A plan presented at Monday’s council meeting shows the townhouse site on the northwest corner of 200 Street and 70 Avenue.
Between the new housing development and 198 Street is space for a soccer pitch, baseball diamond, and a small elementary school. Over the past year, the proposal met with furious opposition from residents, many of whom said that they bought their homes in the Routley neighbourhood of Willoughby believing that an elementary school would be built there. However, the school district said that there is no need for a school because their data shows that 295 students from Routley attend elementary schools in the district. Furthermore, the school
district argued, Routley is substantially built out and therefore not likely to generate more children to justify a new school. Adoption of the bylaw brings to a close one of the most controversial applications for any Willoughby neighbourhood. The pivotal issue surrounding the controversy was that many residents who moved to Routley did so on the assumption that they could walk their children to a new elementary school there. Petition organizers collected hundreds of signatures which they believed was enough to show that they had an ironclad

case for an elementary school in the Routley subdivision. But while residents say the petition demonstrated their case for a school, the Langley School District said that the Ministry of Education, which has the final word on all new schools, would have to see evidence of that watertight case in order to approve a school at the 70 Avenue site. That was unlikely, as the ministry had already approved the land swap in 2010 and, as part of that arrangement, the ministry had approved a school site at 20626 84 Ave. in the Yorkson neighbourhood of Willoughby. • See related story at right.
The fight over an unbuilt school in Langley’s Routley neighbourhood came to a quiet end Tuesday night with a board of education vote approving the deal to swap land with a developer to allow construction of a school in another neighbourhood. The meeting lasted about 20 minutes from beginning to end. Rob McFarlane, the trustee who lobbied for a second look at the contentious proposal prior to the November election, cast his ballot for a compromise that preserves a smaller portion of Townshipowned land next to the development. “It would be adequate for a small elementary school,” McFarlane said. But McFarlane isn’t optimistic the provincial government will ever approve funding for a school at the 70 Avenue and 198 Street location, saying the probability was “at best, remote.” Trustee Alison McVeigh made the some observation when she opened the brief debate. “It is highly improbable at this point that it’s going to

Two fires damage buildings
Boy remains in hospital NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
The nine-year-old boy who was injured when he was struck by a vehicle on 29 Avenue in Aldergrove on Friday remains in serious condition in hospital. His parents have asked that no details about his condition be released, but Langley RCMP said earlier this week that there is “no change” in his condition. The boy was unconscious but breathing on his own when he was airlifted to hospital after the mishap which occurred shortly after classes were over for the day. The boy attended Shortreed Elementary where PAC members and staff are raising money for the boy’s family. Shortreed PAC president Lacey Warrington said that fundraising will help the family defray the cost of gas, parking fees and food associated with their visits to Children’s Hospital. Anyone who would like to make a donation to the family is asked to call Shortreed Elementary at 604 856-4167.
Homeless man starts Langley City fire DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
A Tuesday morning fire that damaged a soon-to-be demolished industrial complex in Langley City was lit by a homeless man who was trying to get warm, the fire department reported. The blaze in a second-floor location of the structure at 200 Street and the Langley Bypass sent thick clouds of smoke billowing into the sky around 3:50 a.m. It took three fire trucks and 18 firefighters about 30 minutes to extinguish the blaze. A homeless man confessed to the firefighters that he accidentally started the blaze when he took shelter in the unoccupied former business and burned some cardboard for heat. Criminal charges are not expected. No injures were reported. Damage to the building, which is scheduled to be torn down soon to allow for redevelopment, was relatively minor. A second fire in Willoughby on Saturday, in a preview office of a townhouse complex under construction near 208 Street and 83 Avenue, is believed to be arson. (See photo).
WIRE THEFT COST $182,000

Workmen repair the burnt-out back wall of a housing project preview office near 208 Street and 83 Avenue. An alert security guard spotted two small, deliberately set fires Saturday morning.
Wire theft has proved even costlier than originally anticipated in Langley City. At Monday night’s City council meeting, director of engineering, parks and environment Gary Vlieg relayed up-to-date dollar amounts related to wire theft in 2011. Vlieg announced that the final tally for 2011 came in at $182,000, well over the budgeted amount of $10,000. The added cost is the equivalent of a one per cent tax increase, Vlieg told council.
Aldergrove residents call for safety measures NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
Aldergrove residents have come before council several times in the past to discuss ways to make their streets safer. But the dynamics have changed. New parks have been built and old ones expanded, school catchment areas have changed and traffic calming measures have been a “very positive step” in keeping the community safe. The people of Aldergrove are very thankful for all the Township and other partners have done to provide amenities, but pedestrian safety concerns still need to be addressed, Margo McPhalen told council on Monday. Finding ways to keep pedestrians safer
was the focus of McPhalen’s address to council, which came only three days after a nine-year-old boy was seriously injured as he crossed 29 Avenue near the Kinsmen Community Centre. “This past Friday after school right on 29 Avenue many students, parents and neighbours witnessed something extremely tragic and traumatic,” McPhalen said. “A child (was) involved in a pedestrian accident with a motor vehicle, right up the street from the high school, playground, rec centre, daycare and library.” The boy was crossing the road with another when he was hit by a pickup driven by a mother who was driving to her children’s school. There is no crosswalk on the mile-long stretch from 264 Street to 272 Street.
Aldergrove has only one school, Parkside Elementary, on the north side of Fraser Highway, and well over half the students who attend the other schools, namely Shortreed Elementary (which the injured boy attends) Betty Gilbert Middle School and Aldergrove Community Secondary, come from the north side of Fraser. One-quarter of those children will be only 10 years old when they start Councillor middle school each Sep- Charlie Fox tember, McPhalen pointed out — “the same age of the boy who was airlifted to Children’s Hospital on Friday afternoon.” McPhelan noted that speed humps
installed on 32 Avenue have prompted some drivers to use 29 Avenue to avoid them. “With the large number of young families in Aldergrove, we are a very pedestrianheavy community, but we are not a very pedestrian-friendly one,” she said. As principal of Aldergrove Community Secondary from 2001 to 2007, Councillor Charlie Fox is well aware of traffic issues on 29 Avenue which, he pointed out, is a wide and long stretch of road. “Accidents like this bring a heightened awareness” of that fact, he said. At council’s meeting earlier in the day, Fox said that with so many children using 29 Avenue, council has an obligation to examine ways to improve safety. Council supported his motion for a staff report.

Charlie Fox is a politician, elected by the people of Langley Township to guide the direction of the municipality and administer tax dollars fairly. As a politician, he wields enormous power. Todd Hauptman is a political activist who keeps people like Fox on their toes. But politics is not the only thing they have in common, and it would be a mistake to believe that they are political adversaries. What links them on a supremely personal level is this: Both are alive because of the unselfish act of another. Fox and Hauptman underwent kidney transplants within 15 months of each other. Fox received his from his wife, Diane, and Hauptman from Tanya Tait, the executive assistant to MP Mark Warawa. In January, 2009, Fox received a kidney from his wife, Diane, a coun-
sellor at R.E. Mountain Secondary. On March 31, 2010, one of Tait’s kidneys was removed and placed next to Hauptman’s non-functioning kidneys. As the questions about the unknown swirled in their heads, the four did not have the benefit of a support group. Knowing what they know now, they want to offer their support through the establishment of a Fraser Valley support network for people facing transplants, potential donors, and their families. At 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 20, Tait, Hauptman and the Foxes are convening a gathering in the Yorkson Room on the fourth floor of Township Hall, 20338 65 Ave. There, people can share stories and speak of their needs, and find out what resources are available. While building awareness of organ donations is part of the event, the thrust will be to establish a support continued, PAGE 5

I never thought otherwise,” she said. It is said that a transplant operation is harder on the donor than the recipient, but Diane more or less sailed through a three-month recovery, “The real bonus,” she said, “is that we spend quality time together in our retirement.” Her experience proved invaluable to Tait. Diane’s willingness to be frank about her experience was extremely beneficial, Tait said. It is only through her network of friends that she found out about the Foxes’ situation and, Tait added, the new group would ensure that potential organ donors and recipients receive the support and information they need. “This is their chance to connect, one on one, and that really helps.” For information, call Charlie Fox at 604-533-3352, or email email@example.com.

Dropping the ball
Cash goes down drain
he decision on a controversial land swap by Langley Township council Monday night is a tacit admission that the Township, the school district and the provincial government dropped the ball on the matter of providing proper services to people moving into new developments in the Routley area of Willoughby. The decision calls for land to be set aside for a smaller school, in the event that there are enough students from the area. The school would accommodate Kindergarten to Grade 5 students, which is in line with a plan to build a middle school in Willoughby. The complex land swap called for the school district’s existing Routley site on 70 Avenue to go to the Township. In exchange, the Township is giving up property for a townhouse development, while the school district acquires a new school site in the Yorkson area, on 84 Avenue, west of 208 Street. The land swap goes back to 2009, when it was first proposed by the Township. The board of education endorsed it in a secret unanimous vote a month later, in November, 2009. The minister of education signed off on it in October, 2010. However, information about the land swap was not shared publicly with taxpayers, particularly people who actually live in the neighbourhood. The school district made a half-hearted effort to communicate long after the decision had been made, but only with parents whose kids were already in school. Families with children under 5 were not made aware of the plan. The province dropped the ball by stopping construction of new schools, at a time when Willoughby was growing rapidly. It finally agreed to fund some new schools last fall. It also mandated full-day Kindergarten, which took muchneeded classrooms away from other grades without replacing them. Because the province holds all the cards when it comes to school capital projects, the Township should have made it clear to developers that new projects which would pump more kids into overcrowded schools would not be considered. This would have put needed pressure on the province. Given the close ties between the majority of Township council and the Liberal government, it didn’t happen. There has also been an unacceptable lack of co-ordination between the Township and school district, which is completely unacceptable. The space now being saved for a school in Routley is welcome, but is a stark reminder of how three levels of government let residents down.

lients of Community Living BC in Maple Ridge endured much aggravation and stress when they received word funding for their important programs was to be cut due to money shortages in Victoria. Only publicity through the media forced an about-face and allowed the program to continue. In Kamloops, a successful program in which seniors could access help with work around the house and yard met its end due to a declared lack of money at the provincial level, once federal funding ended. There are countless other examples of worthwhile programs that have died or are on life support due to lack of funding. Here’s the thing: There is money for these vital programs. The cash exists, only the provincial government prefers to spend it in all sorts of ridiculous ways. That seniors program that died in Kamloops? It needed $487,000 a year to run. That Community Living BC program in Maple Ridge that employed mentally challenged people at a recycling depot? It was going to be nixed and needed only $270,000 a year to run. Thanks to the dogged work of Vancouver Sun reporter Jonathan Fowlie, and despite continued BC Liberal attempts to hide the information, it has been revealed the government wasted $780,000 in 2010 on designing and printing pro-HST pamphlets that were to be mailed to homes across the province. The Liberals decided against the mailout and simply destroyed the pamphlets — wasting $780,000 of your money, enough cash to fund for one year both above-mentioned programs. What else has this government done in the name of wasteful spending that has yet to come to light? The next time your local MLA shakes his or her head and bemoans the lack of funding for Project A or Project B, remember this crass political tale of utter waste. —Kamloops This Week The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Beware of ‘divide and conquer’ approach Editor: Everyone at the meeting held last night (Wednesday) at R.C. Garnett Elementary was attending to look out for the best interest of their child. This situation is going to create a huge divide among parents and students. Some will say we should get rid of crossboundary students. You will have parents of younger students say this is great, get rid of the Grade 6 and 7 students. This is not the time for any of us to be divided, we need to stand together to look out for the best for all our children. No one but us will do so. We have proven time and time again that the school board does not care about our children’s best interest, as long as it meets the bottom line. We have been dealing with the overcrowding issue for the past four years, and it has been falling on deaf ears. Now that the district is building a new school and will not have full enrolment to ensure full funding, it wants to make it look like it is dealing with the overcrowding on the slope. Again, it becomes a Band-aid solution for the next two years. The board has this crazy numbers thing that states there is a fixed number of students living in the catchment that cannot attend this school, due to maximum capacity. Now the district says it needs to plan
for future enrolment at Garnett. Kids living in this catchment who do not attend Garnett, but attend other schools by choice should not be factored into these numbers. We need to look at the kids who are here, and what we are going to do. Realistically we have managed to operate for the past four years at maximum capacity, and capped out the school. There are solutions to ensure that no one needs to move if the board actually listens. However, its main concern at this time is to ensure Lynn Fripps is full. What we say at the meeting is a moot point, and this meeting is just a formality to make it look like the board cares. If the board really did care, we would have trustees present. We are told they will not be in attendance. The school can take over the resource room and create a new class for the new Kindergarten students attending in September. I’m pretty sure there would be enough space throughout the school to set up space to accommodate resource learning. I’m sure that if the board sat down with the school administration, they could come up with solutions to ensure the students currently here could remain here. These are not ideal long-term solutions, however we have all been told that “It’s only two years until the middle school is built.”
So what’s two more years of dealing with this, when we have adapted to the restraints for the past four years. The board is going to sell its pitch that it’s a new school, has two levels, we will bus your kids at a cost to the district, there are no portables, etc. It’s their job to sell this to us. It’s our job not to buy into it. As for the generous offer of busing our kids, my concern is this. We currently have huge traffic issues at this school. Now you want to have buses come in and pick up our kids here. Who is going to supervise these kids before they board their buses in the morning and after school? There will be 133 kids left unsupervised, being dispersed into the playground of a K-5 school — a school which didn?t feel they were important enough to be part of. This is not a well thought-out plan. Perhaps the board is planning on parents rejecting the bus idea altogether, in hopes they will drive their kids to Lynn Fripps. Then the district would be off the hook for that cost. The bottom line to all this is we all want what is best for our current students. We have been dealing with these issues for four years and managing. It hasn’t been ideal, but the school board created this issue and our staff, administration and stu-
dents have all adapted. Really, what is two more years? I say to the board, why create more unrest in a community you have not shown any respect for in the past four years? Take this opportunity to show the families on the slope that you actually want, for once, to do what is in the best interest of all the children, and come up with a solution that best suits this school. My reaction to this issue was a knee-jerk reaction. After taking the time to look past my own personal unrest towards this. I realized that it should not be us vs. them. All of our children will be affected by this decision. It is our responsibility as parents to ensure we look out not only for the best interest of our own children, but for all. No one’s child should be made to feel more important than another, and that is exactly what the board’s message to our children is — one group is more important than the other. It’s a pretty strong message that is being sent. If the district thinks the Grades 6 and 7 students won’t hear that message loud and clear, it is wrong. Brenda Driedger, parent of Grade 5 student at R.C. Garnett
More study needed into actual costs of health system Editor: I received a report from the Fraser Institute about the actual cost of public health care insurance for the average Canadian. I found it very interesting, so I did a little research on my own costs, and also found out what it costs my relatives in the U.S. for health insurance. We in Canada pay provincial medicare premiums, plus extra amounts in provincial and federal taxes. A single individual earning $36,962 a year pays $3,607 for medical insurance. A married couple with no children, with an income of $92,709 a year, pays $10,707 a year for medical insurance. A married couple with two children and an income of $105,712 a year pays $10,468 for Medi-
Township pay raises ‘shameful’ Editor: Re: Pay raises for Township mayor and council. Have these people no shame? Who gives themselves a 12.6 per cent and hefty 19 per cent pay raise at the onset of their job? Politicians in Langley, that’s who. This is outrageous. I’m in the wrong line of work. I’m just feeding the “trough” with my exorbitant tax increases. These tax increases surely are not going towards repairing the potholes in Langley streets.The mayor and council see Langleyites as bottomless wallets at their disposal. I wish the ballot sheet had a box that said “vote for none of the above,” because that would be the only box I would have checked at election time. And I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in these sentiments. Sandra Steffan, Langley The
cal Insurance. A person earning $241,549 ends up paying $32,116 in medical insurance. Prescription drugs are included, but depending on income, they are subject to deductable of between $1.000 to $5,000 a year. To cover health care costs for my wife and I, we have three insurance policies — the B.C. Medical Insurance Plan, the Public Service Health Care Plan, and the Public Service Dental Plan. I was in the air force, so qualify for veterans’ assistance. My direct insurance costs are $1,593 per year, but I also pay the first $3,000 for prescription drugs with 80 per cent of this covered by the Public Service Health Care Plan. I am unable to calculate the portion
I pay in taxes, but if it is $5,000, then my medical costs me close to $10,000 per year. We often hear about the high costs of health insurance in the U.S. My wife’s sister lives near Los Angeles, and is a senior. She pays $2,500 per year and Medicaid picks up about $2,000 per year, because she is a senior. In the U.S., 76 million people with low incomes are also covered by Medicaid. Otherwise, it is a straight insurance plan. One takes out the insurance they believe they need. I have a nephew and his wife in the U.S., who each pay $1,578 per month, and are covered for everything, including very expensive operations. Doctors and hospitals are not allowed to turn away emergency care clients because they may
not be able to pay. Obviously this issue needs more study, but we should not condemn or support either the Canadian or U.S. system unless we know all the facts. One thing is certain, first-class medical services are expensive and they must be paid for. When I was working, I was involved with two doctor-owned clinics in Vancouver. I was surprised to find out that about 10 per cent of their customers paid cash, because they decided they did not wish to pay their B.C. Medical Premiums. I would appreciate replies and input from others, as some intelligent debate is needed. Eric J. Bysouth, Langley
Pension changes weren’t mentioned during last year’s federal election Editor: Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s recent announcement of proposed changes to the age an individual can receive Old Age Security (OAS), going from 65 to 67, is unacceptable. For those of you not familiar with the OAS benefit, the proposed cuts will reduce your monthly income by $500 (on average) per month, or a reduction
of $24,000 in pension benefits for a couple. For individuals in their 30s, 40s or 50s who are unable to save for retirement, due to current financial pressures of dayto-day living, the OAS benefits will be funds they critically need. During the last election campaign, did anyone hear the Conservative candidates mention cuts to pensions?
I did not remember discussions about cuts to pensions. Perhaps pension cuts are part of the Harper government’s secret agenda? What’s next — cuts to CPP? It would appear cuts to social programs and a lower standard of living for Canadians will be Harper’s legacy. Brad McLean, Chilliwack.
Ferguson missed the economic downturn Editor: Did I actually read a comment from Councillor Steve Ferguson to the effect that now is not the time to consider cutting back on council’s
salaries? Has he missed the worldwide economic downturn? And some Township residents actu-
ally voted for him.

You & The Law
NEW RULES for POWERS OF ATTORNEY and LIVING WILLS New rules came into effect in B.C. on September 1, 2011 for powers of attorney, representation agreements and “living wills” (now called “advance directives”). The new changes affect how these very useful estate planning documents are prepared, signed and administered. An enduring power of attorney appoints someone to handle your legal or financial affairs in the event you become incapacitated, while a representation agreement typically appoints a health care spokesperson for the same circumstance (although it can also be used to grant legal and financial powers). Without one or other of these documents, properly witnessed according to the new rules, members of your family could be forced to go to court (which is expensive) for permission to handle your affairs if you become incapacitated for an extended period. If you made one of these documents before September 1, 2011, it’s most likely still valid. But it would be prudent to have your lawyer review them, just in case, to make sure they still have their desired effect. Alternatively, if your estate planning hasn’t yet progressed to preparing one or more of these documents, now would be a good time to consider doing so. What are some of the new rules? They spell out certain tests for determining your capacity to sign one of these estate planning documents, impose new requirements on witnessing and signing them, and state that paid health care workers (other than your spouse, parent or child) cannot act as your attorney or representative. The rules also expand on what an attorney or representative may and may not do, and what records they have to maintain. As

well, the Public Guardian has been given the power to apply to court to remove an attorney or representative if your capacity to make the document is in doubt, or if your attorney or representative appears to be neglecting or abusing their powers. The new rules also now legally recognize a properly signed “advance directive.” This document creates a record of your health care wishes. It speaks for you when you no longer have the capacity to do so and can include end-of-life decisions (such as refusal of life support). These directives have often been informally recognized by the medical profession. But the new rules now require doctors to follow your recorded wishes and also exonerate health care providers who follow them in good faith. (But you still can’t ask for anything illegal, such as to be compassionately put out of your misery when there’s no hope of recovery.) By the time most people reach late middle age, they are at higher risk of strokes, dementia, Alzheimer’s and other incapacitating illnesses. These sad events, along with personal injuries, can occur suddenly. And they often don’t leave sufficient time to have appropriate paperwork prepared to authorize others to act in your place. It’s therefore always a good idea when preparing or revising your Will to consider making appropriate arrangements for incapacity as well. Your lawyer will be familiar with the new rules, can explain all the available options, and can ensure that all of the new documentary requirements are properly followed.

After the meeting,
Dykeman said she opposed the land swap because she doesn’t believe any school property should be disposed of until the district completes its long term planning. “Irreversible ad hoc decisions that have the effect of pitting neighbourhood against neighbourhood do not serve the district well, in my opinion,” Dykeman said in an email to The Times. “To suggest that there is a more desperate need for a school in one area of Willoughby at the expense of

A small group of Routley parents were on hand for the vote. Ilona Pretorius said the smaller site makes a school far less likely. “There isn’t enough space according to the current rules for the school district to have a school there, so keeping that ‘carrot’ available for people to think that there might be something is not really playing fair,” a disappointed Pretorius told The Times. Hank Der said the residents proved they “deserved” a school. Der added he hopes the school district has learned a lesson about the need for better communication with parents, many of whom didn’t learns about the land swap until a development sign was posted on the land. “The challenge is that when decisions are made, and not in consultation with the public, there’s a disconnect in terms of the need and justification and the end result,” Der said. He went on to say that the district needs to make more of an effort to co-ordinate with parents and the Township if it wants to avoid situations like the controversy that erupted over Routley. “Right now, it seems to be a fragmented process where communities are being positioned against each other and that’s unfortunate,” Der said.

Unpaid work by Langley teachers worth $1 million a month
DAN FERGUSON TImes Reporter
Every month, according to their employers, Langley teachers work an average of $1 million in unpaid after-hours work. That figure is based on a failed application in November by B.C. school districts to have teacher salaries rolled back 15 per cent by the British Columbia Labour Relations Board.

BC JoBs Plan: Technology Technology is a fast-growing sector of the B.C. economy. The industry is a magnet for highly educated professionals attracted to world-class high-tech clusters including the life-sciences, digital media and wireless, information and communications technology, ocean sciences and motion picture production. The average wage of $63,440 is more than 52% above the average for all jobs in British Columbia, which makes this sector even more attractive to job seekers. In 2009, the high-tech industry provided 84,000 jobs with a total salary bill that added up to $5.3 billion, up from $4 billion in 2007. The job growth will continue, with a projected 57,000 technology jobs opening by 2019, and an annual growth rate of 2.2%. British Columbia attracts global technology leaders, including Pixar, Disney, Boeing, MDA, Microsoft, Sierra Wireless, SAP, Dolby Canada, and Intel. These major technology companies look for a stable economy with a supply of experienced employees and a supportive government. British Columbia has both. It helps that the University of British Columbia is rated No. 1 in terms of technology licensing, an indicator of a high level of success and a culture that nurtures innovation. Who was it that said ‘necessity is the mother of invention’? The answer could be Alexander Fernandes, previously of Qimage. After his Burnaby plant was broken into, Fernandes invested in what was presented as the top of the line video surveillance equipment – which in reality didn’t produce enough clarity to identify the intruders the next time it happened. At that point, Fernandes realized he knew all about imaging and knew he could do much better. Fernandes sold his company, Qimage, for a very healthy $20 million and started a new company called Avigilon with just two employees. The objective of this new venture was to up the caliber of surveillance systems to the highest possible standard. Now seven years later Avigilon is considered an industry leader. This Metro Vancouver company has created the highest-resolution cameras in the industry, backed up by cutting-edge software, using the provincial government’s small business venture capital programs to raise nearly $7 million to help fund research and development. To say this company is a huge success is putting it mildly. Avigilon has more than 10,000 systems installed in over 80 countries around the world, including schools, sporting venues, car dealerships, malls, trains and airports. A direct benefit is the 150 jobs created, with 75 of those located here in the Lower Mainland, plus a sales force scattered around the world selling Avigilon systems as fast as the Richmond plant can produce them. And they are not finished yet. The company is expanding fast, hiring an average of three or four people a month and attending university career fairs to attract top talent. The future is very bright for this company whose principal turned a problem into an idea and then into a very successful company. A healthy high-tech sector also attracts investors who are impressed by the industry’s performance. Revenues have more than tripled in the decade leading up to 2007, and were up another 4.4% by 2009, to $18.9 billion. Currently, investors receive a 30% refundable tax credit,
supporting up to $100 million in investment every year. The provincial government, seeing the role they can play in this fast growing sector, will increase the value of this program by $3 million, allowing more individuals known as ‘angel investors’ to put their own capital directly into eligible small business, and to offer strategic expertise. B.C. firms attracted more than 19% of Canada’s venture capital investments in 2010, with B.C. the top province in life sciences venture capital investments. High technology wears many hats. The BC Cancer Agency is a world leader in cancer research, and B.C. is North America’s third-largest centre for film and TV production, averaging $1.2 billion in spending per year, 80% of which is foreign money. The global entertainment and media industry is expected to grow by five per cent a year to 2014, when it will hit $1.7 trillion. B.C. is well positioned to take advantage of this growth. The high-technology industry is not an island. This sector supports B.C.’s entire economy by helping other industries become more innovative, productive and globally competitive. Digital media and interactive gaming technologies are being used in education, agriculture, mining and health care. Other impacts are more global. With an estimated 5.3 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide – India and China added 300 million subscribers in 2010 alone – the demand for digital, wireless and screen-based entertainment is immense. These two countries, India and China, are undergoing mass movements to urbanization, which also gives B.C. opportunities to offer them clean, efficient energy, waste reduction and health-care solutions. B.C. is perfectly aligned to supply a healthy portion of this demand in the coming years. Airplane sales around the world are expected to reach $US3.6 trillion over the next 20 years to replace aging planes and expand fleets, providing opportunities for our advanced manufacturing sector. Plus, as a climate change leader, we are at the forefront of renewable energy technology development. Finding new markets for our solar, wind, biomass and other technologies can help turn B.C. into a cleantech powerhouse. As Canada’s Pacific Gateway, B.C. is strategically located to reach growing global markets. In addition, B.C. is close to technology and entertainment hubs in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and Seattle. Under the BC Jobs Plan, the provincial government will work with the federal government to meet our workforce needs and expedite the immigration process for researchers and scientists in other parts of the world who want to bring their expertise to British Columbia. B.C.’s fast-tracked immigration process through the Provincial Nominee Program encourages firms to locate in B.C. so they can hire experienced business immigrants. The B.C. government’s focus on this sector, identified as one of the eight key sectors with the greatest opportunity to bring new dollars into our economy from our most important trading partners, helps nurture an industry that has immense potential to accelerate growth throughout the province.

Cats eyes on 200 Street that have been obliterated by snow ploughs should be replaced, a Township politician has urged. Councillor Bob Long told council on Monday afternoon that when it’s dark and the roads are wet it is difficult to see the lines that separate the lanes. He told council that it is particularly important to rectify the situation along a stretch of 200 Street south of the Highway 1 interchange where the busy arterial road is six lanes wide. He said that he would like to see cats eyes installed. Ramin Seifi, who heads the engineering department, confirmed that 200 Street did once feature the reflective devices but they were destroyed by snow ploughs. Using recessed cats eyes, such as those installed along Highway 1, would eliminate that from occurring, but Seifi said there are currently none in place on any Langley roads. Long’s suggestion will be discussed by council on Feb. 13.
Tourism Langley searches for new home NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
Tourism Langley is moving out of the Langley Events Centre. With rent running at around $80,000 a year, the LEC has become too expensive, John Aldag advised Township council on Monday. “We’re looking for a more affordable home,” said Aldag, who chairs Tourism Langley’s board of directors. He said later that a visitors’ centre committee was asked to review Tourism Langley’s tenure at the LEC.
‘”It found that our rent costs were out of line with our budget,” Aldag said. The committee is now looking for a new location. Aldag, who led the committee that recommended the LEC for the tourist agency, said that an office close to Highway 1 has been all but ruled out. He noted that when Langley had a tourist information centre close to the freeway, staff found that the majority of people who stopped by simply wanted directions to a location or event in Vancouver, got back into their cars and returned to the freeway.

Female robber sought Langley RCMP are asking the public if they can help identify a woman caught on tape attempting to rob the CIBC in Walnut Grove last October. The wellSuspect dressed suspect is believed to be responsible for additional robberies in the Lower Mainland, said police. On Oct. 28, at approximately 12:30 p.m., a woman in her 40s entered the bank and approached a teller. She indicated she had a gun and demanded money. No weapon was seen by the teller and the woman became agitated as she waited — finally leaving without any money. The suspect fled on foot and police dogs were unable to establish a successful track. The suspect is described as approximately 45 years old, with blonde hair, wearing a black touque, purple rimmed glasses, a black sweater and black pants. Police are asking the public to study the surveillance photographs and call them at 604-532-3200 if they can help identify the female who is believed to be responsible for other robberies in the Lower Mainland. Those who need to remain anonymous can contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222 TIPS.

Flat fee for rental suites could lower Township NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
How much of a burden do secondary suites place on the Township? And what would the impact be on annual budgets if homeowners paid a flat fee to have those suites? The topic arose on Feb. 1 as council continued discussions on the 2012-2016 financial plan which includes the budget for this year. The five-year financial plan had originally contemplated a property tax increase of 3.95 per cent.Then, as council continued the budget process it became clear that a 2.7 per cent increase was feasible. The tax increase consisted of 1.5 per cent for general operations, and 0.70 for improvements to fire and police services. In addition, another .50 per cent was contemplated for road maintenance, but would not
include new road construction. In late January, Councillor Steve Ferguson suggested that council consider yet another 0.50 per cent to allow the Township to return to a system in which money is set aside for capital projects, such as new recreation facilities, playing fields and bridges. This would bring the budget up to 3.20 per cent. At the beginning of the budget session on Feb. 1, Mayor Jack Froese quoted Churchill: “Gentlemen, we have run out of money. Now we must think.” It was Councillor Kim Richter who thought: Why not institute a flat fee for every house that contains a secondary suite? She noted that the proposed property tax increase is higher than the cost of living in B.C. (1.7 per cent), Vancouver (1.9 per cent), and Canada (2.3 per cent). Taxpayers must be given a break, she said.“We
can raise more money, but we can stop spending so much.” Richter said the Township is borrowing money from its own reserves and borrowing externally. “Maybe it’s time to stop spending,” she said. Councillor David Davis echoed her concern, and said he worried about the Township getting further into debt. Debt, he said,“is cheap money.” Finance director Hilary Tsikayi warned that delaying property tax increases will ultimately mean larger increases in the future, which does not offer stability to ratepayers. “We are going to catch up some time,”Tsikayi said.“Cost drivers don’t go away.” Charging fees for secondary suites is one of several options which Tsikayi’s department offered to reduce taxes. Others include raising development cost charges, admission to recreation programs, and rentals on municipal properties. Savings could also be found by cutting

services, or dipping into reserves. Richter said rental fees are something the Township should investigate. But, she stressed during the meeting and in an interview afterwards, there must be public input. “We have to have public dialogue because it will be an extremely controversial issue,” she said. Asked by Richter how many homeowners declare their secondary suites, head planner Ramin Seifi replied that there are 200 to 250 owners every year “that we know of” — and none pays a fee. The argument behind a fee is that single family homes pay taxes based on the assumption that only one family uses general services such recreation and transportation, and utilities services such as water, sewer, recycling and garbage collection. Furthermore, tenants’ vehicles put pressure on street parking.

A new long-term vision has been proposed for the area: in 2041, Carvolth will be a vibrant, mixed use gateway to Langley. As a transit hub and major employment node, Carvolth will be a livable, sustainable urban place with high quality amenities and green infrastructure integrated into the community fabric. A draft Preferred Concept has been developed to help achieve this vision. Residents and property owners are invited to attend a public open house to review and provide comments on the draft Preferred Concept.

Carvolth Plan to create transit village NATASHA JONES
Even if council has the appetite to follow this avenue, there is insufficient time to incorporate a fee into this year’s budget, but judging by the Township’s figures, the impact would be considerable. Seifi said that Township research indicates that neighbouring municipalities charge a homeowner between $400 and $500 a year for a secondary suite. If a fee of $400 was applied to 2,000 rental suites and the revenue not placed entirely for utilities funding, the reduction in property taxes would be $800,000, the equivalent of about one per cent. Richter wondered whether the Township could track the real number of secondary rental suites through the census. Meanwhile, Councillor Bob Long said that he plans to canvass representatives of municipalities across the country about the issue when he travels to Ottawa for a sustainability conference of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
The Carvolth Plan proposes to develop the 200 Street gateway to Langley as a transit-oriented neighbourhood at the heart of which will be a transit village. The plan covers an area south of the 200 Street/Highway 1 interchange, including those portions that lie north of the freeway, sandwiched between 204 Street and the Langley/Surrey border of 196 Street, and a jagged southerly boundary that roughly follows 84 and 83 Avenues. The plan is the focus of an open house on Feb. 9 from 4 p.m., to 9
p.m. at Mountainview Alliance Church, 7640 200 St. Residents will have until Feb. 29 to make further submissions to council. The Township’s vision is to have Carvolth (the original name for 200 Street) become a vibrant, mixed-use gateway to Langley, a tourist hub and major employment centre. The transit village would become a major urban destination that is within walking distance of a transit exchange. Designers of the plan foresee a “high quality public realm . . . with frontages built right to the street and parking provided underground or behind buildings.” Density would be medium to high,

with residential units contained in multi-family buildings of between four and 18 storeys. Other features include the Gateway corridor, described as a “character area” along 200 Street between 83 and 86 Avenues. A report presented to council suggests that this area “is intended to create a sense of arrival for travelers leaving the Trans Canada Highway and entering an emerging urban place.” The area is envisioned to attract corporate headquarters, business and professional offices, consistent with some of the existing developments on 200 Street. This corridor would also allow a hotel and convention centre.

Developer presents rehab centre with cheque from collected fines
Morningstar proud of its safety record When those who work on a construction site do not comply with the regulations imposed by WorkSafe BC, they are given a fine. Morningstar Homes decided that the funds should go to a good cause, and donated the $14,660 they collected last year to the GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver. “Safety is not something we take lightly at Morningstar, and (we) have incorporated policies and procedures into our daily practices to make the workplace a safe environment for all,” says Morningstar President Robert Morse. “We seek to ensure the safest workplace possible and do everything within our power to educate and facilitate safe working practices.” GF Strong is B.C.’s largest and most specialized centre for rehab. It serves people
with work-related injuries as well as those stemming from sports, an accident, a stroke or a degenerative condition such as ALS or Parkinson’s Disease. “We are happy to report that we have never incurred a serious work-related accident in the history of Morningstar,” says VicePresident of Sales and Marketing Deborah Calahan. “It is our hope that through our diligence and commitment to a safe working environment that these infractions will continue to diminish ... we lead by example and hope this will encourage others to commit to the same high standard.” Examples of fined offences include not wearing a hard hat or proper safety gear. “We are proud of our record and we intend to keep it that way,” Calahan says.
‘Stylish single-level living’
Living the creekside life at Headwaters by Kerry Vital
Situated beside creeks and sheltering trees, Headwaters in the Morgan Creek area of Surrey is a private, secluded enclave that almost reaches out and hugs you. With the creek on two sides, nature has done a superb job of creating a earthly paradise. “Nature does the job better than I ever could,” says Treegroup VicePresident of Sales and Marketing Rod Sopko. With Treegroup’s 20 years of experience building homes, South Surrey showed them it had a lot of potential to be an amazing place to live. With 13 different floorplans available, buyers at Headwaters won’t have any trouble finding the perfect condominium home to suit their needs. “There is something there for everybody,” Sopko says. The homes range from 651 to 1,279 square feet, in a variety of one-, two- and threebedroom plans. Inside, the kitchens and bathrooms are spectacular. With recessed pot lighting and beautiful shaker-style cabinetry in your choice of Rich Expresso Stain or Fresh Antique White, both the kitchen and master bathroom are calm and soothing. The kitchen backsplash is chic and modern, in either Cool Grey or Cloud White. Complemented by the white-speckled Brazilian granite countertops and island in your gourmet kitchen, dark laminate wood flooring is a true focal point throughout the main living areas.
There is something here for everybody,” says Treegroup Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Rod Sopko.
big feature at Headwaters, the on-site business centre is a selling point as well. With an Internet lounge, private offices available for meetings, a screening room and a conference room, your every business need will be taken care of. There is also a concierge available. There is also a lifestyle centre that features a fireside lounge, gourmet kitchen, screening room and a flexible lounge space. The third jewel in the Headwaters amenities crown is the fitness centre, which includes a fully equipped gym and the use of a personal trainer. If your New Years resolution to
lose those last 10 pounds is falling by the wayside, you will no longer have any excuse at Headwaters. If you feel like venturing off the property for a bit of recreation, there are several golf courses and athletic parks in the area. Shopping, restaurants and several schools are also just a short walk or drive away. Located on-site at 15428 31st Avenue, the show suite and sales centre is open daily from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Homes start at $256,500. For more information, visit headwatersclub.ca or call 604-535-1451.
Each home includes a workspace area that Treegroup calls a Personal Hub. This space, with a built-in desk complemented by frosted glass accent windows and recessed lighting, can be used for anything you want, from a home office to a leisure nook perfect for curling up on a rainy day. Buyers are already pleased with their purchase. “The homes at Headwaters offer stylish single-level living as well as amazing on-site amenities that allow easy work-from-home flexibility and a host of leisure opportunities,” says Craig Harrold, who was so impressed that he e-mailed 25 of his friends to tell them about it, Sopko says. While the location is definitely a

Idea corrects fashion faux pas MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter
Elizabeth Anne LeGear noticed a severe faux pas in the world of women’s footwear, and decided to take matters into her own hands. After searching endlessly for a pair of boots with interior pockets to hold credit cards and money, LeGear realized there were none. So the 27-year-old accountant decided to create a patent of her own.The result is Purse n’ Boots— the very first “purse for your feet.” The knee-high genuine cowhide leather boots have storage pockets hidden inside to hold cell phones or makeup, credit cards and cash, removing the need for ladies to carry purses while enjoying a night out on the town.They are a classic style with a 2.8 inch heel and hidden elastic goring for a universal fit. “I just wanted to buy a pair because I thought,‘I’m sure this must have been done already.’ It’s a pretty simple idea and I looked all over everywhere and they just didn’t exist,” LeGear explained.
Purse n’ Boots began selling online through LeGear’s new company Elizabeth Anne Shoes just over six months ago, and are now being carried at select retail stores in Calgary and will soon hit Vancouver stores as well. So far the response has been huge, LeGear says. “We’ve been just lucky that this thing has spread as quickly as it has. It’s a really unique idea so word spreads around,” she said. “It feels really special. It’s pretty exciting when you’re walking down the street and there’s your boots in a store. “I saw a pair on someone’s feet the other day and I said ‘oh, I made that pair!” LeGear, who runs a bookkeeping business from her home, has no fashion design background. She simply came up with an idea, sketched it out and took it to the Chinese company Chiko Shoes to create a prototype. “I was pretty lucky because the company that I found is one of the only ones that I know of where you can take your pencil sketch of what you want and notes on what materials you want to use and they
actually will work with you and make a prototype— all just from this piece of paper,” LeGear said. “Most of the time there’s a lot of steps in the middle. I think you actually have to have a wearable boot in a computer program that you have to send, and if I had tried to do that it would have come out as some weird garbled thing.” There is only one boot design for sale so far but a few more new models are in the works. LeGear is currently designing a cowboy Purse n’ Boot to debut at the Calgary Stampede and a European walking boot with a passport pocket inside.
“It’s been about two years in the making. It’s been a lot of researching how to take an idea and make it into an actual product,” she said. “I have a lot of ideas brewing around... I love coming up with innovative problem solving ideas. Ideally I would like to continue on with that and a few other things I have in mind.” After realizing accounting is perhaps not her true calling, LeGear hopes to one day focus full time on her fashion creations. “It’s kind of funny because when you’re little that’s the time to pick your career. I always said I wanted to be an inventor and then over
Elizabeth Anne LeGear is the inventor of Purse n’ Boots, the first women’s boots with interior pockets to hold cell phones, credit cards, cash and loose change. time it changed to ‘maybe I want to be a financial analyst,’ she joked. “It’s not so much that I hate doing [accounting], I do have that analytical side to me. I just didn’t like the idea of being in the same office environment nine to five
everyday, two weeks holiday, it really just didn’t suit me at all.” Only 300 pairs of LeGear’s original Purse n’ Boots were created, and just over half are left for sale. For more visit www. elizabethanneshoes.com.
Thunderbird Show Park earns high marks Thunderbird Show Park has earned some top marks. The local equestrian facility was ranked second on the list of the top 25 show jumping venues in North America. The list was revealed by the North American Riders Group at its annual meeting held on Jan. 31 in Wellington, Fla. Earning top spot was Calgary’s Spruce Meadows. More than 50 horse shows across North America were
evaluated using eight sets of criteria, including footing, stabling and marketing. Thunderbird Show Park earned a total score of 83 per cent. “We are thrilled, honoured and humbled,” said Jane Tidball, president and tournament director at Thunderbird Show Park. Thunderbird, which is family owned and operated, is celebrating its 39th anniversary
this year. It was founded by George and Dianne Tidball. The Tidballs were inducted into the Jump Canada Hall of Fame in 2009, recognizing their commitment to the sport of equestrian. Their vision for Thunderbird Show Park has been a driving force in the growth of the industry in B.C. For George, who also holds a place within the BC Restaurant
Hall of Fame as the founder of the Keg Steakhouse & Bar, the founding principle behind Thunderbird was always a simple one. “We treat visitors to the Park like guests we’ve invited into our own home,” he said. “Our vision is to showcase every aspect of our sport,” Jane Tidball said. “We celebrate the horse, strive for excellent competition in all breeds and disciplines, and
throw in a whole lot of west coast hospitality.” Thunderbird Show Park will host six major hunter and jumper tournaments this year, including three sanctioned by the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) and will offer more than $800,000 in prize money. The facility is situated on 85 acres and features six competition rings, five warm-up rings and three indoor arenas.

Roster named for upcoming BC Winter Games Thomas Hattie is following in the skates of his mom, Leanne, who played ringette at the Alberta Winter Games as a teenager. Thomas will represent Team Fraser Valley at this month’s B.C. Winter Games in Vernon. Miranda GATHERCOLE/ Langley Times
Like mother, like son Just like his mom, Thomas Hattie is chasing gold GARY AHUJA Times Sports
Leanne Hattie remembers the thrills she experienced competing at the Alberta Winter Games as a teenager. It was the 1986 Games held in Edson, Alta., and Hattie was a goaltender on the gold-medal winning ringette team for her zone at those particular Games. So when the opportunity came for her son, 13-year-old Thomas, to try out for the Fraser Valley zone ringette team for the 2012 B.C. Winter
Games, the Langley mom gave her teenage son a gentle nudge to give it a shot. “He wasn’t going to try out,” she explained. “I just told him it was a good opportunity and he should really go for it.” And it is a good thing he took his mom’s advice, as by the end of the tryout process, he was pestering her to check her email to see if he had made the final squad, which he did. Thomas is excited to represent his zone, much like his mom did back in her day. “It should be fun,” he predicted. Leanne recalled the excitement from her own Games experience, especially with all of the other athletes, who are on hand to watch,
adding to the atmosphere. “It is just so exciting,” she said. And while his mom played goal, Thomas was never destined to follow in her footsteps and don the equipment. “I just love skating, how fast it is,” he said. “He is too good of a skater,” concedes Leanne. As for what would happen if the two of them faced off now on the ice — something which hasn’t happened in quite awhile — Thomas doesn’t hold back. “Oh yeah, I could score on her,” he said with a smile. His mom didn’t offer much of an argument. “My reflexes just aren’t what they used to be,” she said with a laugh.

The defeats leave the Hawks with a 15-16-3 record and their 33 points are one back of the sixth and final playoff spot in the 11-team league with six games remaining. Valley West has managed just one victory (1-6-3) in their past 10 games. Mitchell Friesen, Danton Heinen and Austin Bietenbeck scored in the first game on Saturday at MSA Arena. Heinen also had two

Brookswood Bobcats’ Jared Monk drives to the hoop against the Langley Fundamental Titans during Grade 8 boys’ basketball action. With the regular season winding down this week, the district championships will be held at the Langley Events Centre on Feb. 15 and 16.
Consider it mission accomplished. “We accomplished at the draft what we wanted to do,” said Langley Thunder general manager Gerry Van Beek. Van Beek said the senior A lacrosse club was looking to bolster their lineup — which captured the Western Lacrosse Association league championship in 2011 — with some youth and physicality. The club added 10 players at Monday’s annual junior draft. With the fifth overall pick, the Thunder grabbed Mark Matthews, a hulking forward from Ontario who is in his final year at the University of Denver. He led the team in scoring last year with 46 goals and 70 points. Matthews played his junior with Coquitlam. “He’s a phenomenal player who obviously knows how to score and he adds size to our offence,” Van Beek said. The Thunder grabbed another Coquitlam junior player with their second round pick, taking runner Tor Reinholdt. The team’s other picks included: Matthew MacGrotty, Leif Mydske, Patrick O’Meara, Steve Fryer, Myan Adams, Chancey Johnson and Graeme Stewart. Of the 10, Van Beek expects at least half of those picks to play with the Thunder this season. Langley begins its training camp in midApril and the WLA season kicks off May 18. The Thunder home opener is May 23 at the Langley Events Centre. ••••• A pair of Langley Jr. Thunder players were also selected in the draft. Burnaby nabbed Colton Hayes in the second round while Maple Ridge selected Colton Porter in the sixth round.

The top-ranked Trinity Western Spartans keep on winning. The men’s volleyball team — ranked No. 1 by the Canadian Interuniversity Sport — improved to 17-1 following a pair of wins over the host Calgary Dinos. The Spartans won 3-0 (25-18,25-18,25-23) on Friday and 3-1 (25-22,20-25,25-23,25-18) on Saturday. “It’s nice to get the win over a very good opponent, which will help us get ready for the playoffs,” said coach Ben Josephson. The two wins helped Trinity Western inch closer to securing top spot in the Canada West, which would give the team a bye into the Canada West final four championships, as well as the right to host them. They have never won the Canada West regular season league title. Rudy Verhoeff led the way with 20 kills on Saturday while Jarrod Offereins had 10 digs. Dan Jansen Van Doorn had a hand in nine blocks and Verhoeff figured in six. In Friday’s match, Steven Marshall had nine kills and four blocks, while Jansen Van Doorn had 10 blocks, seven kills and three aces. ••••• A pair of costly losses have dropped the Trinity Western Spartans from second to fourth in the Canada West standings. The women’s volleyball team lost a pair of 3-1 matches to the host Calgary Dinos over the weekend. The results dropped the Spartans to 12-6 on the season. Calgary won the opener 3-1 (18-25,25-23,25-18,2512) and then took the second end of the doubleheader, also by a 3-1 score (25-18,25-20,19-25,27-25). Both Spartan teams close out the regular season with a pair of home matches against UBC this weekend at the Langley Events Centre. BEST BUY – Correction Notice

Langley Centennial Museum
Recreation, Culture, and Parks
On until March 18, 2012
9135 King Street, Fort Langley Food For Health is a bilingual travelling exhibit created by the Canada Agriculture Museum, in collaboration with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and other exhibition partners.
Food For Health addresses, from a consumer’s point of view, concerns and questions that many Canadians have about the safety of their food supply, and the role food plays in ensuring good health.
By combining hands-on interactive components, multimedia technology, historical artifacts and graphics, Food For Health provides Canadians with the knowledge they need to protect themselves against food-borne illnesses through safe food-handling practices. It also investigates evidence of links between diet, physical activity and obesity, and illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
