Teenager charged in pepper spray attack a no-show Has until today (Jan. 10) to appear in court or arrest warrant will be issued DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

An 18-year-old Langley man charged with using pepper spray to assault two undercover Langley RCMP officers is in trouble with the law again. Court records show Dallas Ball failed to appear for his Dec. 23 Surrey Provincial Court hearing on charges of assaulting a police officer, assault with a weapon and willfully resisting or obstructing a police officer. If Ball does not show up for a second scheduled court hearing on Tuesday (Jan. 10), the Crown prosecutor has served notice that a warrant for his arrest will be sought. Ball is also facing a new charge of breaching his terms of release in the pepper spray case. The teen was arrested on Nov. 2 in the City of Langley shortly after the incident. Two Langley RCMP Street Enforcement Unit officers spotted two men walking through an alley, one of them wanted on an outstanding warrant. When the plainclothes Mounties identified themselves as police, both suspects turned and ran and the officers gave chase. As they pursued the males in the 5600 block of 206 Street on foot, the man with the outstanding warrant turned and sprayed the officers with bear spray. Both officers recovered after they were treated at the scene by paramedics. Ball was arrested a short time later, charged, then released from custody on a number of conditions, including a promise to return to court. continued, PAGE 5

Students at Langley Christian High School arrived at school on Jan. 5 to a very pleasant surprise. The Grey Cup had made an unexpected visit, thanks to Chuck McMann, the special teams coordinator and running backs coach for the BC Lions, and his wife, Margarette, who teaches at the school. Students poured into the gym during

their lunch break for a chance to pose with the cup. “We were pretty excited and in disbelief. I thought it was going to be fake,” said Grade 11 student John Evans. Langley Christian was one of many places McMann brought the century-old Cup during the short time he had possession of it. He took it to firehalls and banks, and he also shipped it up to Fort Nelson for a community event. “The policy of the league as well as the team is to share the cup with the community as much as possible,” McMann said. “We just want as many people as possible to be able to touch the cup and get a feel for it.” One of his most memorable moments with it was in Fort Nelson, when he ran

into a lady whose father had played for the 1945 Grey Cup. She had never seen it before and was able to find his name engraved on it. “It’s great to see the people’s reactions, and see that they understand that it is the original one. There is no replica,” he said. His wife, too, was overjoyed to bring the Cup to her students. She had just found out that morning that a change in schedule would allow them to take the Cup to Langley Christian. “I just think it’s fun to see the excitement of people enjoying our victory because the victory is so special,” she said. “It is so much fun, and it is always nice to let the excitement keep going.” Delta native Davis Sanchez has possession of the Cup next.

These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive antiinfl ammatory drugs that cause more problems than they solve. There are absolutely no side effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent antiinflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction to inflammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/ day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily. This product gets results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. Aside from its incredible anti-infl ammatory and pain reducing ability, it has also been shown to improve the performance of your daily nutrition and vitamin programs. It helps increase the absorption of vital nutrients, which in turn helps these nutrients work better.

Man killed by train DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

A man in his early 20s died when he was hit by a freight train early Friday morning (Jan. 6) in Langley. Police said it happened around 6:45 a.m. near the CN Rail crossing at 216 Street and 96 Avenue in Walnut Grove. Langley RCMP Insp. Amrik Virk said it appeared the victim was lying down on the tracks when he was hit. “We don’t believe he slipped or fell,” Virk said. “We have no reason to suspect foul play.” The train remained halted on the tracks near the 96 Avenue crossing for several hours while RCMP, CN Rail police, Transport Canada and the coroner’s office inspected the crash scene.

The new head of the RCMP in B.C. is vowing to transform the culture of the force to ensure sexually harassed officers can safely blow the whistle on their tormenters and get help.

A man who tried to pick up a two-year-old boy in Langley City’s Douglas Park is being sought by Langley RCMP. Around 9 a.m. Monday, a Langley father and his young son entered the playground area of the park in the 20600 block of Douglas Crescent. When the father turned away to put down his son’s helmet and bike, an unknown male picked the child up in his arms. When the father saw his son in the suspect’s arms, he yelled loudly and the suspect immediately dropped the child. The suspect fled the park with the father following closely behind. The man entered a vehicle, a dark green van or SUV with a tinted rear window, and sped off southbound on 206 Street. The suspect was described as possibly South Asian or Hispanic, average build to slightly husky, 5’9” to 5’11” with dark brown hair, wearing a white hat and a dark shirt. The Langley Serious Crime unit is investigating. They have issued a public appeal to anyone with information that might assist investigators to call Langley RCMP at 604-5323200.

Health Matters As we face a New Year, resolutions come to mind. Most involve health, exercise and weight. Success tips include: 1. One resolution at a time (break large tasks into small steps), 2. Accountability (share your plans with others), and, 3. Persistence (don’t give up with setbacks). And, remember to make them SMART; Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic & Timely. You CAN do it!

Is dieting in your plans? As we learn more about ghrelin, the so-called “hunger hormone,” we are finding that some of the traditional “diet” foods may be sabotaging our weight loss efforts! That salad for lunch is low in calories, but that lack of carbs does nothing to reduce your ghrelin levels, leaving you hungry! Better to add some complex carbs on the side. Stepping up your exercise? Remember those images of athletes stretching their bodies prior to their workouts? Evidence now shows that this can actually increase the likelihood of injury and reduce athletic performance! Dynamic warm-ups (walking/jogging, swinging arms, etc.) increase heart rate and respiration, warm the body and increase muscle elasticity – and improve performance.



Die-hard smokers avoid thinking about the health effects of smoking, but the facts are irrefutable… Tobacco causes cancer (lung and others), cardiovascular disease & stroke, is responsible for 90% of all COPD deaths (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and is a risk factor in diabetes, kidney disease, obesity and many other conditions. There are many methods to help you quit smoking when you decide the time is right – and your pharmacist can help you choose the one that’s best for you.

RCMP’s new top cop a third generation Mountie from PAGE 3

He said he’s interested not just in rooting out harassers, but also examining the response of those in the force, particularly immediate superiors, who have allowed it to fester under their watch. “I will be equally interested in what kind of information the supervisor or the local leader or officer-in-charge of the detachment had and what he did about it.” New policies will require strict timelines for investigation and action on harassment complaints, he said. Callens agreed the harassment disclosures have been the latest in a barrage of blows to the RCMP in this province — ranging from Robert Dziekanski’s death at Vancouver airport to missteps in the investigation of serial killer Robert Pickton — that have pummelled the morale of officers. Despite that, he said public confidence in the force does not deserve to be eroded because an overwhelming majority of RCMP officers “do an exceptional job every day.” Callens also suggested Mounties don’t get enough credit, either for their greater transparency in recent years of disclosing incidents of officer misconduct, or for their support of external civilian oversight of police in those cases. “We embrace and look forward to external review and civilian oversight,” he said, adding he could not be more pleased that Richard Rosenthal has been named as B.C.’s first civilian police investigator. Rosenthal is known for busting corrupt police in Los Angeles. Callens said the RCMP will intensify its push in 2012 to lead a province-wide gun and gang strategy involving

Police search of Langley pot grow-op upheld Prosecutor wins fight over evidence from cellphone, computer DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

The Langley RCMP did not go too far when they gathered evidence from one of two computers and a cell phone found inside a marijuana growing operation, a B.C. Court of Appeal tribunal has ruled. The verdict was a victory for the police and Crown prosecutor and a setback for Thanh Long Vu, the owner of an 84 Avenue property that was raided by the Langley RCMP drug section on Sept. 6, 2007. What is described as a large marijuana growing operation with more than 1,000 plants was discovered in the basement of the house. Also found during the search was a cell phone and two computers, a desktop and a laptop. The officers found evidence in the computers and cell phone that they said connected Vu to the grow operation, including security video recordings on the desktop that showed a Honda CRV registered to Vu coming and going from the house, a resume

Hear Life. I let my pride stop me from hearing clearly...

in his name on the laptop and photograph of Vu on the cell phone. It was, the court was told,“standard practice for members of the Langley Drug Section to examine non-password-protected computers and cellular telephones for evidence of ownership or occupancy” during a raid. During Vu’s trial, a B.C. Supreme Court judge threw out the evidence from the cell phone and portable computer, saying the warrant authorizing a police search of the premises should have specifically included a reference to “electronic documents.” The video evidence from the desktop computer was allowed. The Crown prosecutors’ office challenged the ruling. In a written decision released on Dec. 28, a three-judge B.C. Court of Appeal panel said the warrant did not need to mention “electronic documents” like the resume found on the laptop. The warrant gave the officers the power to look for any documents that would identify the owner of the grow op, the judges ruled, and that applied to both the paper and electronic varieties. In their ruling, the judges also noted the law governing search and seizure limits the extent of a police lookthrough of a computer or cell phone and does not allow them to “scour” the entire contents of a hard drive.

I never thought I would have hearing aids. I was too proud to have my hearing checked, all I can say now is don’t let pride stop you! I had my hearing checked and needed to get hearing aids. The professionals at Crystal Hearing made it so easy I don’t know why I didn’t do it earlier.

No charges for second suspect from PAGE 1

Police said they were able to identify the second suspect in the pepper spray incident, but no charges were expected. Ball, who sometimes has used the name of Daniel Wagemans, is also facing charges of robbery and possession of stolen property in connection with a Sept. 26, 2011 incident in Langley. He is separately charged with taking or occupying a “vehicle or vessel” without the consent of the owner and possession of stolen property in connection with a July 15, 2011 incident, in White Rock. Ball also faces multiple charges of breaching his terms of release in both cases.

More help for Haiti

Attack ads a sign of concern


wo years ago this week, a devastating earthquake hit the Caribbean nation of Haiti, killing a huge number of people. The Haitian government claims that 316,000 died, while other estimates place the death toll at between 46,000 and 92,000. The quake also displaced another 1.5 million, and many of them remain homeless. It was one of the biggest natural disasters in history. While aid flowed in from around the world, including a number of specific projects that were supported by people in Langley, much remains to be done. The country still remains devastated, and it needs ongoing help on many fronts. The challenge is how best to provide that help. A great deal of money has flowed into the country, and much good has been done. But because so many projects have been spearheaded by well-meaning nongovernmental organizations, there has been a lack of co-ordination. In addition, some aid money doesn’t seem to have arrived yet, even though it has been promised. The United Nations special envoy for Haiti says that only about half of the $4.5 billion in aid promised by world leaders has actually been disbursed thus far. Canada has disbursed 90 per cent of the money it has pledged. The Canadian International Development Agency has approved projects worth $232 million in Haiti. These projects have helped in areas such as providing clean water, providing medical aid, training police and rebuilding infrastructure. Canada remains committed to helping in Haiti, and many Canadians want to see the country rebuild. They may find it difficult to know what projects to support and how best to get help to the country. Perhaps the best approach is to get information firsthand from people who have been to Haiti and are familiar with its current needs. In the age of the Internet, getting such information is not difficult. There are agencies on the ground who are providing much-needed support in areas that still need assistance. One of the most important is providing long-term housing so that many people will no longer have to live in displaced person camps0 Canadians showed two years ago that they have a willigness to help people in other parts of the world. That generosity remains, but it is important to know how best to provide assistance.

he difference is in the manner in which the ads are presented. The provincial political world has weighed in on the B.C. Liberals’ decision to target B.C. NDP Leader Adrian Dix, with 16 months between now and the May 2013 election. The governing party has created a website — — where it lists everything that went wrong in B.C. during the NDP reign in the 1990s, when Dix was former premier Glen Clark’s right-hand man. Some have accused the Liberals of showing their desperation in waging all-out war on Dix; the Grits argue they are simply laying out the facts for voters who might not be aware of Dix’s involvement in the NDP government of the 1990s. The Liberal campaign is serious and shows the party is obviously extremely concerned about losing the next election to the NDP. The New Democrats, conversely, scored big-time with their clever, witty and wickedly funny TV commercial last year featuring “Christy Crunch” cereal. That may have been an attack ad, but at least it was one with panache and creativity. Now, about the campaign. What the Liberals don’t mention is that other taxes (what the B.C. Liberals prefer to call fees and tolls and recycling deposits and carbonneutrality goals and MSP premiums and ICBC rates and ferry fares and BC Hydro costs) have climbed to heights unimagined since they claimed power in 2001. Dix may be risky. That remains to be seen. But the past 10 years have not exactly resembled Shangri-La for the average family struggling to survive. —Kamloops This Week

I would also like to take the time to comment regarding a few points made by the writer of this letter. Many of her points are valid, yet many, I find, are somewhat disturbing and insulting to me, an educated business person in the Langley community. In response to her point of “other professions such as the police and nurses” receiving raises in the past year, and reasoning that the tuition costs of teachers while they were in school should be used as a justification for raises is rather confusing. Though I cannot speak for the policing and nursing professions, I personally have spent many years receiving an education, at my own cost, with no pay, in order to have a future career. My first job was not in my educated field of study but as a warehouse employee. I received low pay and it took many years to catch up to my education costs, once I was positioned in the business world. I did not argue with my employer that my wage was not fair, trying to bargain with him that my wage should somehow be connected to my education costs. My employer bore no responsibility to those costs, nor should he have. The choice was mine, become educated

and hopefully in the future I would be paid accordingly and solely on my job performance. She stated that “teachers in B.C. are among the lowest paid in Canada.” Her parting comment uses the “highest cost of living” here as a reason as to why teachers should be paid more. Why should the high cost of living in B.C. be a factor when the employer pays their employees? It is not the employer’s duty to judge and base wages with consideration given to our cost of living in B.C. Our employees get paid a fair wage for their job performance. Do your job and get paid for it. It’s an odd concept, I know. If the economic climate is not to your liking, much like our weather, I suggest a new residence may be in order. The point made that “teachers have paid more than $10 million dollars fighting the government” is invalid. I take great offense that she has chosen to make the point that we in the private sector do not make concessions, 0 per cent pay raises, to “improve the conditions for their customers.” Well, we do. Tough economic times have called for tough measures. The private sector has faced and will continue to face these turbulent times head on. I have had to make tough choices within our company to ensure all our employees have a job today, tomorrow and the day after. The management of our company has also faced a 0 per cent increase in wages for three years

running, to ensure our employees keep their jobs and we maintain our position within the marketplace, while ingredient and manufacturing costs have risen over 35 per cent in those three years. I have not raised the pricing of our end product to reflect these increases, as the public would lynch me. The company has “eaten” many of those increases. The insinuation that “we don’t” is quite a comment. It is not factual, and I will leave it to others to try to interpret and decipher. In closing, I would like to say that as a private sector, non-unionized employee, I get paid on job performance. My job security lies with doing my job. Do it and I have one, do it poorly and I get paid in like, and don’t do it well and I am looking for new employment. I would also like to add that in order for me to have reason to justify a raise, I have taken additional courses on my own time, outside of work hours and at my own cost. I guess I am the fool, I chose the wrong profession. I would like to add that I truly appreciate the hard work done by our teachers who are there to teach our children. I do however have little appreciation for some educated persons hiding behind the teacher position. There is a big difference between an educator and an educated person. The educator is a teacher, the educated person is there for the money. In parting, I believe I have my facts in order. Jeff Mitchell, Langley

Principals, vice-principals not part of a union Editor: I read with interest the letter you received from Jan Stuart (The Times, Jan. 5). I would like to correct some inaccurate information. Contrary to what the writer states, B.C.’s public school principals and vice-principals do not belong to a union and haven’t since 1988, when they formed an autonomous professional association with voluntary membership.

The majority of eligible members, more than 92 per cent of B.C.’s public school principals and vice-principals, belong to the B.C. Principals’ & Vice-Principals’ Association (BCPVPA), which is not at the bargaining table and has not been involved in any discussions regarding teacher bargaining. The BCPVPA exists to support the needs of our members in their roles as educational lead-

ers. The association also works to give students in the province a voice in their education through BC Student Voice. You can learn more about the association at or see short interviews with 20 of our members by visiting Jameel Aziz, president, BCPVPA, Vancouver

BC Conservative government may be best bet in the next provincial election Editor: I refer to the column by Tom Fletcher, “Harsh year ahead for B.C. politics,” (The Times, Jan. 3). Politics in B.C. were relatively quiet over the holiday season, but as we get into 2012, we can expect things to heat up. We are about 500 days from an election in B.C., and with the latest polls showing the Liberals at 23 per cent, the Conservatives at 23 per cent, the NDP at 34 per cent and the Greens at 15 per cent, it should be an interesting event. Based on past experience, the last thing we need is an NDP government, as they tend to pull the economy down. When the Liberals took over from the BC Social Credit, a large number of their members were Social Credit. However, a large number of federal Liberals have now joined and taken over the party, with the resulting Liberal policies producing negative results. We are in a global economy and we must adjust to this fact if we are to maintain an acceptable standard of living.


The BC Conservative Party is made up mainly of Conservative and former Reform and Social Credit members. If they are to be elected as government, they must get their act together on policy and get some good candidates nominated. In general, the best government for B.C. would be a Conservative one, with the NDP as the opposition. The NDP get their main support from unions and people at the bottom end of the social and economic scale, who must have representation in government. No government is perfect, but the federal Conservatives have done a good job managing in the current world economic downturn. Canada has one of the world’s strongest and best economies, rating sixth in the world by the Economic Freedom of the World Report. This report is prepared each year by think tanks in 42 countries and covers 141 world economies.

The worst country of the world is Zimbabwe and the best is Singapore. Countries are judged on 1) Size of Government: Expenditures, Taxes and Enterprises; 2) Legal Structure and Security of Property Rights; 3) Access to Sound Money; 4) Regulatory Trade Barriers; and 5) Regulation of Credit, Labour, Business and HonJohn esty in Government. Cummins One of the biggest problems for countries with a strong economy is the ability to manage rising costs in health care and social programs. This will have an impact on countries such as Canada and the provinces. Looking to the future, our best bet at this point in time is for a BC Conservative government. I trust they will stay on course and be ready when the election is called. Eric J. Bysouth, Langley

THANK YOU Editor: I would like to take the opportunity to thank four young people who found a purse lying on a sidewalk in front of a private home in Langley on Christmas night. One of the young people went to the door of the home, wanting to know if anyone there had dropped the purse on the sidewalk. As it turned out, one of the guests at that home had inadvertently dropped it while putting gifts in the car, which was parked in front of the house. It had gone unnoticed until she arrived back home in Chilliwack. It was very uplifting to know there are countless young people who are a treasure and a pleasure to deal with. Their parents can be very proud of the job they did in instilling in these four the virtues of honesty and integrity. I am very appreciative to be the recipient of your kindness. Thank you again. Mrs. White, Chilliwack

IT’S STILL WINTER Editor: Why do radio stations suddenly stop playing songs about winter after Christmas day? Such tunes as: “Sleigh Ride,”“Jingle Bells,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Let It Snow,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Frosty The Snowman,” “Baby, it’s Cold Outside,” “Marshmallow World,” and “There’s No Place Like Home For The Holidays” are all songs about winter; not Christmas. Winter, which supposedly began Dec. 21, did not end on the 25th of December. It is just as much winter after Christmas day than it was before. Tony Roy, White Rock

IT’S BULLYING Editor: I think that if our premier is serious about “family first,” she would do well to stop the party she leads from making nasty remarks about the opposition. The new ad campaigns are nothing more that examples of bullying, name calling, and defaming. Is this the kind of thing the Liberal party wants to teach our children? She should not be exposing children of taxpayers to this kind of advertising. D. Atkinson, Langley

Report indicates poor turnout in highly-populated Willoughby area Overall turnout 25.9 per cent NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

The official report into the Nov. 19 civic election, formally received by Township council last month, contains a few oddities, not least of which is the poor turnout in one of the most densely populated communities. There were 12 polling stations, as well as advance and special (mobile polls) voting opportunities. Willoughby had two polling stations, R.C. Garnett Elementary and R. E. Mountain Secondary. Some Willoughby residents were upset with council over two main issues: the Athenry development at 208 Street and 83 Avenue, and plans to turn 5.6 acres of land zoned for a school at 19865 70 Ave. into a townhouse development. It appears that neither of these issues, nor the fact that Willoughby has Langley’s highest concentration of residents, inspired people to vote. There were 1,182 voters at Mountain, and 1,024 at Garnett, both lower than at James Hill Elementary in Murrayville (2,022), James Kennedy Elementary in Walnut Grove (2,576), and George Preston Centre in Brookswood (2,732), where the highest voter turnout in the municipality was recorded. In rural Coghlan, the area in which defeated mayor Rick Green lives, only 294 people voted, compared to 434 in 2008. Green came third to winner Jack Froese and runner up Mel Kositsky. One of Green’s nominators unsuccessfully sought a recount, but the numbers show that he trailed Froese and Kositsky in every poll, with the exception of Wix-Brown, where he scored eight more votes than Kositsky. The report, compiled by chief election officer Susan Palmer and deputy chief election officer Bob Wilson, noted that there were 71,175 registered voters, an increase of about eight per cent over 2008. Voter turnout was 25.9 per cent. The report pegged the cost of the election at $133,153. The largest single expenditure ($44,525) went to pay municipal employees and those hired for the day.

Langley resident named in $5.7 million securities case Local woman, Ontario business partner, and company, accused of raising money from investors without being registered DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

A Langley resident, her Ontario business partner and the company they owned together, have been charged with violating B.C. securities laws by raising $5.7 million from stock market investors without being properly

registered. The British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) said Maisie Smith (also known as Maizie Smith) of Langley and Ingram Jeffrey Eshun of Ontario, each owned 50 per cent of JV Raleigh Superior Holdings Inc., a B.C.-based company. The commission issued a notice of hearing alleging the

company and its two directors breached securities laws by selling securities without being registered. The notice alleges JV Raleigh entered into loan agreements that raised approximately $5.7 million from numerous investors between July 2006 and January 2009. Under the loan agreements, the BCSC said, JV Raleigh was to borrow money from investors to purchase “consumer secured notes receivable”, which the firm described as “a form of factoring” with typically “high

yields.” It also promised to provide investors a monthly “return of capital” payment, and return the balance of the investment, plus interest, at a later date. According to the BCSC, Smith met with investors, assisted them in entering the loan agreements, signed the loan agreements on behalf of JV Raleigh, and opened B.C. bank accounts where investor funds were deposited. Eshun opened the bank accounts with Smith and was an authorized signatory. According to the commission,

Relay looks for early birds Early bird registrations for the Langley Relay For Life will be possible until Jan. 31. Relay For Life is about teams working together to save more lives through cancer research and other programs. Year after year, Langley residents have walked the walk, as the community has come together to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones and fight back against all cancers. This is the eighth annual Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life at McLeod Park, and to date Langley has raised over $2.25 million to help fight back against cancer. “We are inviting past participants, new participants, cancer survivors and anyone else in the community to join us, and get involved with the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life,” says Alice Swenson, Langley Relay organizing committee member, cancer survivor and team captain. “You can sign up as an individual, a team captain or as a team member or as an event day volunteer.” Each participant who registers by Jan. 31 will pay the reduced entrance fee of $10 and get automatically entered into a B.C./ Yukon wide draw to win an IPad. To register online, go to www.

More information is available by calling 604-533-0822 or e-mailing This year’s Canadian Cancer Society Langley Relay For Life takes place on May 25 at McLeod Park. Teams of all ages take turns walking around a track for 12 hours overnight, and participate in the variety of entertainment and activities throughout the event. At this early stage, Langley Relay has registered 21 teams for this year’s event. The organizing committee is hosting an Early Bird pancake breakfast on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., at SaveOn Foods in Willowbrook, at 64 Avenue and 204 Street. People who stop by will be able to find out more about Relay For Life. Team and participant registration will be available for new and returning participants. “Relay isn’t an athletic event,” says Laura Sumpter, co-chair of team recruitment and development. “It’s a fun, non-competitive and fulfilling experience for all ages, that brings together family, friends, co-workers and communities to fight back against cancer. I hope you will consider joining us trackside this year.” The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is an inspiring event that brings together more

than 200,000 people throughout Canada to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and empower individuals and communities to fight back against cancer. The event begins with a celebration of courageous cancer survivors taking the inaugural victory lap, that sends a message that there is always hope. There is time during Relay when participants take a moment to remember cherished loved ones in a moving luminary ceremony. Participants get involved in Relay For Life because many have been affected by cancer and want to put an end to suffering and loss caused by this disease. Cancer prevention has the most potential to save lives. People can fight back by making a personal commitment to improve their health, the health of their family and their community. Funds raised go towards investing in cancer research; influencing change through advocacy; empowering Canadians with reliable, up-to-date information; speaking up on issues that affect Canadians with cancer and providing a range of support programs to people living with cancer, including family members and caregivers.

Minister Mary Polak visits the Child Care Resource and Referral Office Langley’s local MLA, the Honorable Mary Polak- Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation, recently visited Langley Community Services (LCSS) Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR) ofÀce located at 20577 Fraser Highway for coffee and a chat.

Gerry Hay, whose story of wartime service in the Royal Canadian Navy was profiled in Nov. 10, 2011 Times for Remembrance Day, passed away on Dec. 25 at his home in Osoyoos. He was 90. He grew up in Mount Lehman and Aldergrove, and attended Langley High School. Together with other students at high school, he joined the town “broomstick army,” a volunteer militia unit under command of First World War Major Archie Payne. He had an interest in stationary engineering and thought that joining the military would provide him with the ability to learn that trade. His parents objected, however, so he did not do so until after the war began. After training in Langley and North Vancouver, he was called up to join the navy. He was sent to Halifax in 1941 after completing basic training, and was initially a stoker aboard HMCS Saskatoon, one of Canada’s fleet of corvettes. Because of the work he did, he had little sense of the battle going on above him in the fierce and ongoing Battle of the Atlantic. He was below decks keeping the ship operating. “As a stoker, you didn’t know where you were,” he said. Historian Warren Sommer, who wrote

Hay’s story for The Times, concluded his Nov. 10 article in this way: “Known in his youth as “little Gerry Hay,” he seems anything but the stereotypical image of a warrior. But Gerry is precisely the sort of man on whom the Allied victory ultimately depended: quietly courageous, dutiful and determined; an ordinary man thrust into extraordinary circumstances. “It was men like Gerry who safeguarded the North Atlantic, preserved Britain’s freedom, enabled the Normandy invasion, and helped to secure the Allies’ final victory.” He remained in the navy until 1947, rising to the rank of stoker petty officer. After the war, Hay found employment as one of the original staff members at Langley Memorial Hospital, when it opened in 1948. He worked at the hospital in engineering and maintenance for 38 years, retiring in 1986. He was chief engineer from Warren SOMMER/Special to The Times 1958 on. Gerry Hay, who grew up in Langley and “He was very well thought of by served in the navy in the Second World staff and management, and was chief War, died on Dec. 25. He was 90. engineer for many years,” said Doris Riedweg, a longtime LMH colleague He is survived by his wife Reta.

Langley is often referred to as ‘a multi-cultural community of communities’ and this holds very true as well for our business community. One of the goals the Board of Directors is to increase member engagement and reach out to our ethnic business sector. The Membership Development Committee under the leadership of Community Director Michelle Chandra is exploring opportunities for the Chamber to welcome and be inclusive to all cultures that conduct business in our community, celebrate our rich diversity and respect ethnic beliefs. Another goal of the Board is completion of the Business Resource Centre project. Director Scott Johnston and the Committee are creating an electronic ‘Business Toolkit’ that will provide a ‘one stop’ resource guide for starting and growing a business in Langley. The ‘Kit’ will include a

listing of all members who provide business services complete with contact information and an introduction to the type of services provided. For instance, while the Chamber has in excess of 20 firms that provide legal services, many of them do not provide business services. The Committee is also considering how the Chamber can enhance the business information and resources provided at the Chamber Office. We would like to invite members to assist us in this project and invite anyone interested to join the Business Resource Centre Planning Committee. The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the launch of the new website in mid-January. The website will include online calendar of events, registrations and payments, a searchable member list and allow members to update their company information. Please be sure to visit the site to ensure your information is correct! Denni Bonetti, President

If Robbed...

< Assign Employee Responsibilities such as: • Who will call police • Who will look for a getaway vehicle (if any) & direction of travel • Who will lock the doors • Who will detain & separate witnesses • Who will protect evidence Do not assume these jobs will be done - make your staff assignments now. < Have some marked money in the register. Record the denomination, serial number, and year of several bills on a piece of paper kept separately from you till. Try to include this marked money with what the robber takes. < Surveillance Cameras are a great deterrence.

< CALL POLICE IMMEDIATELY. < DO NOT RESIST. Cooperate with the robber. Do not volunteer to do anything other than what is asked - he/she may be armed, high on drugs. < Try to remain calm. You will be able to give a better description. Try to notice height, hairline, ears, scars, marks, tattoos, rings... < Give robber marked money (part of your pre-planning). < Preserve the scene for evidence - immediately lock all doors. Don’t touch anything the robber may have. Ask all witnesses to remain on the scene and independently record their interpretation of events, including the robbers description(s). Don’t compare notes, just have everyone report what they saw. < Note direction of travel and mode of transportation.

Holistic Caring important



Just In...

ince 1974, Langley Lodge has been a place to call home for many of Langley’s seniors. Centrally located at 204th street and 54 Avenue, the Langley Lodge is in the heart of Langley City. For its residents this means the opportunity to stay involved and connected to their community. Caring for the residents in a holistic way is an important value at Langley Lodge. The programs offered are second to none. There is pastoral care, music therapy and therapeutic recreation. Residents can go on outings, learn to play music and grow flowers and vegetables in the greenhouse. A philosopher’s café is offered on a monthly basis. The Langley Lodge is managed by the Langley Care Society. The non profit organization was established in 1971 by a Langley Rotarian Roy Brown. He and other citizens were concerned about the lack of long term care services in the community. They founded the Langley Care Society and started planning for the day when Langley Lodge would open its doors to serve the community. Three years later the Langley Lodge welcomed its first residents in 1974. In 2006 the Fraser Health Authority announced that it would be upgrading the dual room occupancy standard to single room occupancy and this necessitated the Langley Care Society to undertake a massive renovation in order to meet the new requirements. In 2008 the construction of a 2nd tower was started and 18 months later, the renovation began on the original structure. The construction and renovation was completed in 2011 and because of the large scope of the project the Langley Care Society holds a twenty eight million dollar mortgage. No longer fully subsidized by the Fraser Heath Authority, a private pay system has been implemented. In addition to the 112 subsidized beds there are 27 private spaces and this change resulted

in implementation of a marketing strategy, to inform the community that Langley Lodge is not fully funded by government. Today, two-thirds of the private pay beds are full, and the society is working hard to fill all of the private pay spaces in order to create revenues and meet its new financial obligations. Because Langley Lodge’s twin towers are the tallest structures in Langley there is a revenue opportunity unique to the Society. Some of the major wireless companies rent space on top of the roof for their equipment. The first tower built in 1974 provides wireless coverage for a large section of the community and the second tower added offers even better Residents dressed coverage for some parts 2011 Puttin’ on t of the community. The Langley Care Society is under the direction of a local volunteer board of directors. The Board is made up of twelve caring community members who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. “Local people make sure that we have the best level of care for the elderly in our

community.” said Executive Director Debra Hauptman. The Langley Care Society is also one of Langley City’s largest employers.

More penalties for drinking and driving TOM FLETCHER Black Press

Legal issues with B.C.’s new drinking and driving law didn’t slow down police road checks and suspensions during the holiday season. From Nov. 1 to Jan. 2, RCMP in the Lower Mainland imposed penalties on 399 drivers, compared to 310 in the same period of 2010. Those totals include impaired driving charges, 90-day vehicle impoundments and administrative licence suspensions. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Jon Sigurdson ruled Nov. 30 that parts of B.C.’s new roadside penalty system infringed on drivers’ constitutional right to defend themselves. But just before Christmas he suspended his ruling for six months, allowing police to resume applying their strictest roadside penalties, including 90-day licence suspensions and impounding vehicles for 30 days.

Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond has vowed to move quickly when the legislature resumes sitting in February, to amend the legislation passed last year that gave police in B.C. the toughest roadside impaired penalties in Canada. RCMP Superintendent Norm Gaumont said some people may have been confused by the court ruling, believing that they could refuse to blow in a breathalyzer without facing a criminal code charge. The judge upheld the use of the immediate three-day roadside prohibitions for drivers who blow in the “warn” range between 0.05 and 0.08, and found 90-day suspensions for refusing to give a breath sample area also permissible. “We’re not backing off,” Gaumont said. Bond said the first year of the new penalties resulted in a 40 per cent decrease in alcohol-related deaths on B.C. roads.

An artistic alliance For the second year, LCMS and Kwantlen’s music departments are joining forces and offering the public some top quality entertainment at no charge BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter


uilding on last spring’s Musical Offerings, faculty from a pair of Langley music schools will once again join forces in a “renewed artistic alliance” while offering a gift of music to the community. The event — happening on Saturday, Jan. 14 — now includes a member of the Langley Community Music School faculty. Cellist Joel Stobbe is joining Calvin Dyck (violin) Jane Hayes (piano) and Paolo Bortolussi (flute), of the Kwantlen Polytechnic University music department, to participate in a day of music lessons, capped off with a concert in Rose Gellert Hall. There are a couple of changes audiences will likely notice if they attended the first annual collaboration between LCMS and KPU faculty last April. This year, Stobbe will speak to Kwantlen students while the trio of university instructors offers master classes to LCMS students throughout the day. The classes are open to the public, and the day will once again culminate with a free public concert at 7:30 p.m. “We’ve often seen the need for collaboration between Kwantlen and LCMS,” said Stobbe, who’s excited to be participating in the project this year, though he’s performed with frequently with all three of the other musicians. “We’re never an island and it’s important to build relationships,” he said. By doing something like this, Stobbe said, “you get a broad spectrum of opinions on music and performance styles. I’m looking forward to it very much.” During his time as a student in Munich, Germany, Stobbe enjoyed being able to take in some of the many

And it’s important audiences understand that the hour long concert or five-minute piece they’re hearing is the result of hundreds of hours of work.

Pianist Jane Hayes, who has been an instructor at Kwantlen since the music department opened in 1993, agrees that bringing high quality concert performances to the area is vital. “Langley is just far enough outside Vancouver that it’s desperate for a cultural infusion,” she said. “This is a chance to bring a high level of music to the front door of the community.” Beyond the evening’s performance, during which she has something a little special planned (involving, of all things, golf tees which will make her piano sound like a steel drum), Hayes is looking forward to working once again with students who are often

quite a bit younger than the ones she teaches at the university. “What’s interesting for a pianist is that you’re often getting kids who are so bright, but they’re not necessarily going into music. “They’re so multi-talented and so open — they’re at that point in life where they’re open to anything you can throw out,” she said. The day’s combination of master classes and concert is invaluable, Hayes added, because it removes that barrier students often feel when watching professionals perform. After, all, these are the same people the students have spent the day working with. “We teach, we work, we offer ideas and experience and then we turn around at night and put our best on the line,” laughed Hayes. The title of this year’s evening performance — Music Concert —reveals little about what the program actually offers, but it will include pieces by Haydn, Mendelssohn, Villa Lobos, Vaughan Williams, Dorothy Chang and Steven Chatman. “This year, there is some great traditional repertoire,” said Bortolussi. “There’s a piano trio in D minor by Mendelssohn — I will play the violin part on flute.” In fact, he will adapt two separate violin parts for the Jan. 14 concert. “I’m all about stealing violin pieces lately,” he laughed. “A lot of people will be familiar with the pieces, but not these incarnations.” A lack of material from the 1800s makes the effort necessary, he explained. “There was a big hole in flute repertoire in the 19th century. “It was a fashionable parlour instrument, but it didn’t make it into the major works because none of the big composers were writing for flute at the time.” Like his colleagues, Bortolussi sees the collaboration as a wonderful opportunity for both schools. “Part of (the reason for the day) is to publicize that there is a path (to a career as a professional musician) that is in Langley. It is a less expensive option.” The fact that Kwantlen now offers four year bachelor’s degrees in music means local students can complete their post-secondary education close to home, Bortolussi added. “This is a challenging time for arts in general,” he said. “Money is tenuous. “The more institutions like LCMS and Kwantlen can band together and create a more cohesive scene, so we’re not stepping on each other’s toes, it’s good.” The master classes, which are open at no charge to the public, will be held on Jan. 14 at 2:30 p.m., and the free concert will begin in Rose Gellert Hall at 7:30 p.m LCMS is located at 4899 207 St. Call 604-534-2848

Eve Muirhead (above left) and Stephanie Lawton will be competing for Team World and Team North America, respectively, at this week’s Continental Cup of Curling at the Langley Events Centre. The four-day competition features some of the top men’s and women’s curlers from around the world.

Curlers ready for electric atmosphere GARY AHUJA Times Sports

Curling in Canada is a unique experience and one that Eve Muirhead cannot wait to do again this week. “It is totally different here,” said Muirhead, last week by phone from Scotland, where she is perhaps her country’s most accomplished curler, despite the fact she is just 21 years old. “(The) sports is so massive over in Canada; it has grown over here, but it is not the same. “It is just a totally different atmosphere playing in Canada.” Muirhead and her rink of teammates Anna Sloan,Vicki Adams and Claire Hamilton, are part of Team World. The team consists of two Scottish rinks, two Swedish rinks, and one each from Norway and China. The men’s and women’s curlers go head-to-head against Team North America at this week’s Continental Cup of Curling, which is being held at the Langley Events Centre from Jan. 12 to 15. This is the eighth edition of the championships, which began in 2002, and Team North America

holds a four-to-three advantage in the Ryder-Cup style format. The unique competition sees the curlers battle in various disciplines during the four days — regular team games, mixed doubles, singles, mixed skins and skins games. Each segment awards points for wins or ties with the first side to reach 200 points declared the winner. Muirhead was invited to take part in the 2011 Continental Cup, but declined in order to maintain her final year of eligibility. That does not mean she is a stranger to major competitions, having already established a remarkable record of success on the international stage. Muirhead is a four-time world junior champion and holds the distinction of being the first skip to represent her country in both the senior and junior world championships in the same year. She also represented Great Britain’s entry into the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and also won silver that year at the women’s world championships. “The Continental Cup is such a massive event in the curling calendar,” she said.“I am really looking forward to it.”

Stephanie Lawton will take part in her second Continental Cup, having also represented Team North America at the 2008 competition in Camrose,Alta. “The first time was a lot of fun,” she said from her home in Saskatchewan last week. “It is completely different than any event we have ever played in.” Lawton remembers the electric atmosphere in Camrose. “It was just so cool,” she described. “There were high-fives going on even when you are playing on different sheets. “It is a real event and we really enjoy ourselves.” While all of the curlers are elite, part of the challenge for them is quickly adapting their games and styles to the unique format of the Continental Cup. “It is completely different than any other event we have ever played in,” Lawton said. “You are so used to playing a regular game, now it is learning the rules for a skins game or mixed doubles.The strategy is just slightly different.” She predicts it will be another great memory.

“It is going to be great curling and a great atmosphere to watch,” Lawton said. Lawton’s rink includes Sherry Anderson, Sherri Singler and Marliese Kasner. Anderson is in her second year with the rink, while the other three have been together for seven or eight years. Lawton has curled competitively for more than a decade and represented Saskatchewan in four junior national championships. She also skipped Team Canada to a silver at the world junior championships in 2000. A look at the dozen teams competing at the Continental Cup: Team North America • Team Howard (Canada) Glenn Howard, Wayne Middaugh, Brent Laing and Craig Savill Howard, a veteran curler from Ontario, has a lengthy list of achievements highlighted by a trio of national and world men’s championships over the course of a career that’s seen him wear the Ontario crest at 13 Briers (Canadian men’s championships), including the past six in a row.

• Team Stoughton (Canada) Jeff Stoughton, Jon Mead, Reid Carruthers and Steve Gould Stoughton is a veteran of nine Briers, including three titles and a pair of world championships. Stoughton was competing this weekend at the TSN Skins Game, where he came second. • Team Fenson (United States) Pete Fenson, Shawn Rojeski, Joe Polo and Ryan Brunt Fenson is one of the most accomplished competitors in U.S. curling history. He is a seven-time winner of the U.S. men’s championships and won bronze at the 2006 Winter Olympic. • Team Holland (Canada) Amber Holland, Kim Schneider, Tammy Schneider and Heather Kalenchuk Holland led the Saskatchewan rink to the 2011 Scotties Tournament of Hearts title last year. • Team Lawton (Canada) Stefanie Lawton, Sherry Anderson, Sherri Singler and Marliese Kasner Lawton has represented Saskatchewan at four national junior championships and skipped Team continued, PAGE 27

A new partnership has been formed merging Langley FC with Langley United FC into one larger soccer club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very pleased to have the Langley United FC join with us as it adds more breadth and depth to the options we offer to our club members,â&#x20AC;? said Regan Mostat, the vice-president of soccer operations for Langley FC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like our female soccer players, male players now have lifelong options to play soccer at all ages and levels in one successful soccer club where they

will receive a complete and high quality soccer experience.â&#x20AC;? The announcement comes on the heels of Langley FC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which was previously a girls only soccer club â&#x20AC;&#x201D; being granted permission last month to offer boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; youth soccer programs. The Langley United Youth Soccer Association was also granted permission to field girls youth teams. The addition of the Langley United Football Club menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams helps Langley FC complete its goal of offering a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lifelong soccerâ&#x20AC;? for all female and male players of all ages and abilities.

It has been a rough start to 2012 for the Langley Rivermen. The Rivermen managed just a single point in three road games over the weekend, and that came at the tail end of the trip, a 3-2 loss to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Langley also dropped a 7-0 decision to the Powell River Kings and fell 6-2 to the Nanaimo Clippers in BCHL junior A hockey action. Against the Clippers, the Rivermen led 2-1 after 40 minutes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on goals

from Mario Puskarich and Mike Tebbutt, but Nanaimo struck for five unanswered goals in the third. Jim Kruger made 50 saves in the loss and followed that performance up with a 54-save performance against the Bulldogs. Tebbutt and Thomas Nitsche scored in the defeat. The Rivermen are back in action this weekend with a three-game Interior road trip with stops in Penticton, Salmon Arm and Merritt.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a proactive move on our part,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to make it our choice, and not be swallowed up (by another club).â&#x20AC;? And by joining Langley FC,Thrower hopes to attract more and more players to their menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams, once they are done at the youth level. Langley FC has close to 1,100 registered players this season, while Langley United Football Club has more than 250 players on 13 teams.

B.C. Games have inspired thousands of athletes More than 150,000 athletes have competed at the B.C. Games since their inception in 1978 KERRY VITAL Black Press

With the 2012 BC Winter Games set to start in Vernon next month, spirit is building in every community across British Columbia. The brainchild of former premier W.R. Bennett, the Games

began in 1978 in Penticton. Since then, 38 communities across the province have hosted the Games, some of them more than once. More than 200,000 people have volunteered and more than 150,000 athletes have competed since

much bigger than I imagined,” said Jamey Paterson, who served as vice-president of the 2010 B.C. Summer

challenged before, allowed me to witness a community coming together to proudly show off what we may take for granted on a daily bases.” “Knowing it was so well worth the effort in the smiling faces of the athletes who participated as they dreamed, challenged and achieved,” he added. “One of the most important benefits of hosting a B.C. Games is how it brings a community together,” says Henry Pejril, president of the 2006 B.C. Summer Games in Kamloops. “There aren’t many opportunities like a Games that can capture the full cross-section of a community. “The feeling of pride and accomplishment lasts in a host city for many years to come.” Many well-known athletes had their start at the B.C. Games, including Tour de France cyclist Ryder Hesjedal and 2010 Olympic women’s snowboarding cross gold medallist Maelle Ricker, who are among the alumni who say their dreams of international competition began at the B.C. Games. “My Olympic success can be traced to the provincial Games in my native Manitoba and I see the B.C. Winter Games providing the same opportunity for young athletes today,” said B.C. Games Society chair and 1976 Olympic speedskating silver medalist, Cathy Priestner Allinger. “The B.C. Winter Games provide rising stars an opportunity to benefit from excellent coaching, while testing their skills against B.C.’s best. “Our next generation of Canada Games athletes and Olympians are getting ready for the 2012 B.C. Winter Games in Vernon.” Participants are generally under the age of 18 (depending on the sport), and have the potential to move beyond local and regional competition to the

national stage and beyond. “The B.C. Games are an important stepping stone towards the Canada Games and ultimately the Olympic Games,” said Kelly Stefanyshyn, a former Olympic swimmer and B.C. Games Society board member. “Learning to (compete) for a team beyond just your sport and focus while so many events are occurring is imperative to an athlete’s success.” According to the official website, the aim of the Games is “to provide an opportunity for the development of athletes, coaches, and officials in preparation for higher levels of competition in a multi-sport event which promotes interest and participation in sport and sporting activities, individual achievement, and community development.” Brian Carruthers, president of the Williams Lake 2002 B.C. Winter Games, is proud of the achievements of B.C. athletes. “Sport builds character in individuals and brings people together in a positive environment, whether as competitors, spectators or organizers,” he says. The Winter Games feature 15 sports, including curling, figure skating, skiing and women’s hockey. It is expected that more than1,500 athletes and 300 coaches will participate in the Games in February. “I believe in the B.C. Games as it provides an opportunity to share the spirit with other British Columbians while celebrating your community in the most fantastic and rewarding way,” said Diana Johnstone, operations manager for the 2002 B.C. Summer Games in Nanaimo. “I can’t wait until 2014 when Nanaimo will once again be privileged to host this amazing event.” Surrey hosts the 2012 B.C. Summer Games in July.

DUNCAN MacKENZIE It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of our beloved son and brother. Duncan leaves behind his mother, Luci; father, Cam; sister, Erin (Rahul); Grand Mother, Madeline Stepa of Elk Point - she taught us all how to golf; soulmate, Kristi; many aunts, uncles and cousins; wonderful, wonderful friends who made him feel so cared for and who kept him laughing.We find some solace knowing that Duncan died living his dream - his life-long dream - he chose his life with care and loved it to the end. Duncan lived in Whistler for the last 11 years, patrolling the ski slopes and choosing to do very much the same on his days off. He was lucky enough to go on many climbs in various mountain ranges in Northern B.C. and Alaska, and most recently, Nepal. Summers were spent patrolling the bike park and trail building in locations all over B.C. and the U.S. Those who share his passion will enjoy those trails for years to come. Duncan taught both winter and summer mountain safety and taught mountain biking in western Canada and the U.S. Whatever he was doing, his actions always reflected his love of living with nature. A family friend sent this thought and we share it with you now -- "Duncan died doing what he loved. I think we all want to go this way, but never want to get there." A memorial service will be held at the Henderson Funeral home in Langley, B.C. 10:30 A.M., Tuesday, January 10, 2012. In lieu of flowers, we would feel so honoured if donations were made to the Whistler or Pemberton Search and Rescue teams in Duncan's memory. To sign book of condolences, please click on
