Shooting victim known to Montreal police Investigators hint “lifestyle” choices may have been involved in death of father of three, gunned down in driveway DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

A 38-year-old Langley man who was shot to death in his own driveway was known to police in Montreal. While Jeremy Olivier Bettan did not have a criminal record, court records show he was charged by Quebec authorities in 2007 with a number of criminal offences including assault and uttering death threats. It’s not clear if he ever went to trial.

Bettan lived with his wife, two young sons and a teenaged daughter in a house with several external security cameras and a beware-of-the-dog sign in the 9100 block of 207 Street. Around 9 p.m. on Boxing Day, police arrived to find the casually dressed Bettan lying sprawled on the driveway in front of the garage of the newer two-storey house, one leg still inside the open drivers’ side door of a dark mid-size M-class Mercedes-Benz luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV).

possible.” Greg Schollon, Shaw’s regional manager for Vancouver says everyone at Shaw is very proud of Schulli. “We were just so impressed that

he took on a customer in distress,” he said. Schulli is also being commended by members of the Langley community. Kathleen Johnson, manager at Nature’s Fair Markets, heard of the incident from a customer and hand delivered a gift basket to Schulli’s work. “It’s an amazing story,” she said. “It’s incredible — that’s going the extra mile.” But Schulli admitted he is “a little embarrassed,” when he hears all the praise. In the heat of the moment, all he was concerned about was whether or not David would survive. “I don’t think of myself as a hero, paramedics and firefighters do this everyday, they are the real heros,” he said. “I wasn’t about to just let someone else’s husband, dad, brother die in front of me. I just did the best I could.”

‘Bystander CPR’ offers best shot at survival Lack of training, confidence may be what prevents people from helping in an emergency MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter

Rushing to David Sibley’s side and immediately starting CPR as the 79-year-old man was having a heart attack was the best move Paul Schulli could have made, says Stephen Clinton, executive director of dispatch operations for BC Ambulance Service. Even if someone has never given CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and doesn’t know how, “it’s always best to do CPR,” he said.

“It’s important for the patients in these situations to get care and treatment right away.” When someone is in cardiac arrest, the victim is four times more likely to survive if they receive bystander CPR. Dialing 911 and speaking to a dispatcher is a critical step in the process. They will go through the proper procedures with people on the scene, and ensure the victim is getting the best care possible before paramedics arrive. “I can’t emphasize how important it is to

start doing CPR as soon as [cardiac arrest] happens. The quicker the heart gets assistance the better,” Clinton said. And yet, statistics provided by BC Ambulance Service show that only 15 per cent of bystanders actually provide CPR. Clinton says this is often due to a lack of training or a lack of confidence. “This is where the dispatch instructions really come into their own, because you don’t need to know, you don’t need to be trained, and they will help you with the confidence. Our dispatchers are trained to help people understand how to carry it out. “Most people who call 911 are in the most stressful situation they have been in in their entire life. We try to help them calm down so they are in a position to carry out instructions,” he said.

On average dispatchers across the province receive seven cardiac arrest calls per day, and roughly 50 per cent of them occur in the home. This is why Clinton believes it is crucial for people to take it upon themselves to get trained. “I think it’s really important. It’s almost like giving blood, people should really do it, but sometimes they’re a little bit scared,” he said. “Imagine the feeling of learning CPR and being able to assist your loved one. It’s a very beneficial thing to bring to your family.” CPR training is provided by a number of organizations including St. John Ambulance and the Red Cross. For more, visit their websites at and

Sleep Problems & Age Harsh year ahead for B.C. politics T The future looks optimistic in many fields of medical research. For example, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients are known to have 57 genes in common that non-MS patients don’t have. These genes are involved in the body’s immune system and research is now being focused on the genetic side of MS and it shows great promise.

Also, a new generation of drugs is coming that specifically target certain cells or organs in the body without damage to healthy cells.

The last sailing of the Albion ferry Klatawa, happened on July 31, 2009. Last week, TransLink sold the two vessels to Tidal Towing for $400,000.

Albion ferries finally sold After traveling ‘to the moon and back’ 20 times, TransLink’s boats have new owners MONISHA MARTINS Black Press

The ferries made obsolete by the Golden Ears Bridge which have been languishing at a dock in Maple Ridge for more than two years have finally been sold. The MV Kulleet and the MV Klatawa criss-crossed the Fraser River for 50

years, carrying motorists between Maple Ridge and Langley. They were towed from their slip in Albion on Wednesday. The vessels were purchased for $400,000 by Tidal Towing, a Port Coquitlam-based marine transport company. TransLink spokesperson said Tidal made a firm “as-is-where-is” offer just before Christmas, through Harlow Marine International, Inc. The deal closed on Friday. Tidal Towing has not disclosed the future use for the two boats, but it noted that the price is considerably higher than scrap value, Snider added. The Albion ferry service ended with the opening of the Golden Ears Bridge on June 16, 2009. The ships were initially priced at $1.1

million each and were even advertised on CraigsList in 2009. In the 52 years of service, TransLink estimated the Albion ferries made three million runs, covering a distance that’s the equivalent of going to the moon and back 20 times. While waiting for a buyer, staff periodically fired up the engines to keep them in good working shape. Although TransLink received numerous tentative bids and inquiries from prospective buyers, none turned into a firm offer until Christmas. TransLink had considered selling the boats as scrap if they were threatening to become an environmental or economic liability; however, that point had not yet been reached.

B.C. public health officers back legalized marijuana JEFF NAGEL Black Press

A group of B.C. public health officers has joined a growing coalition of policy leaders urging the legalization and taxation of marijuana. The Health Officers Council of B.C. voted to endorse Stop the Violence B.C. and called for regulation of illegal substances like marijuana to reduce the harm from substance use and the unintended consequences of government policies. “The Health Officer’s Council and other experts are not saying that marijuana should be legalized and taxed because it is safe,” said Dr. Paul Hasselback, a Vancouver Island medical health officer who chairs the council. “We are saying that proven

Cannabis arrests in Canada climbed from 39,000 in 1990 to more than 65,000 in 2009, according to the coalition. An estimated 27 per cent of young B.C. residents aged 15-24 used pot at least once in 2008, according to one poll. Four former Vancouver mayors have also backed the coalition.

Langley teen injured Returns $537 Million in Highway 1 crash Federated Co-operatives Limited(FCL) Reports Record Sales of $8.3 Billion; Returns $537 Million Back To Member Retails and Their Communities

Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL), the country’s largest non-financial services co-operative, achieved sales of $8.3 billion during 2011, an increase of 16% from the previous year. The Saskatoonbased organization also reported record net earnings of $839 million for the fiscal period ended October 31, 2011, an increase of 69% from last year. Of the $839 million in net earnings, a record $537 million patronage allocation is being returned to member retail co-ops. This allocation is used by local co-ops to address the local needs of more than 1.5 million active co-op members in 500 communities throughout Western Canada. Over the past five years, FCL has returned more than $2.2 billion to its member retail co-ops. The remainder of the earnings are retained in FCL to fund future growth initiatives and capital requirements. “By working together, FCL and our retail co-operative member owners have achieved remarkable results,” says Scott Banda, FCL’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Our strong performance was due in part to the strength of the retail cooperatives’ marketing programs, the promotion of Co-op Lifetime Membership Benefits, and to the growth of retail cooperatives. This growth resulted in higher standards on facilities, merchandising and selection, and service excellence by over 19,000 dedicated employees.” Banda also applauds FCL employees for their efforts in bringing to life the organization’s new vision, mission and values introduced in 2011. “These key foundational pieces have given us new directions on how to work together and on how to achieve our business goals,” says Banda. “We have a great story to tell, one that is about being locally invested, community minded and committed to delivering lifetime membership benefits. This story, and our values, is the reason that over 1.5 million individual Co-op members across Western Canada and many more non-member customers have chosen to be part of this success.”

Vehicle involved in Dec. 28 collision near Spences Bridge that killed 55-year-old woman Staff Writer

An 18-year-old male from Fort Langley was at the wheel of a Chevrolet Tracker mini-SUV involved in a crash that killed the 55-year-old female driver of a Saturn SL1 compact sedan on Wednesday morning (Dec. 28) five kilometres north of Spences Bridge.

Lytton RCMP said the Tracker apparently lost control and hit the Saturn head-on Wednesday around 10 a.m. on Highway 1. The tracker was northbound, while the Saturn was traveling south. The driver of the southbound car, a woman from Oak Bay, died at the scene while her passenger, a 17-year-old female also from Oak Bay was transported to Kamloops’ Royal Inland Hospital. The Fort Langley man had to be cut out of the Tracker and transported by Air Ambulance to Royal Inland Hospital for further treatment. Police said icy road conditions are believed to have contributed to the accident.

Drugs, fake IDs seized in search The occupants of a vehicle who became unnerved when a police officer approached had plenty to make them nervous — fake ID and illicit drugs. Langley RCMP arrested an 18-year-old woman from Surrey who was behind the wheel of a car parked in the 20100 block of 56 Avenue at about 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 20. Her companion, an 18-year-old man, gave police his name but couldn’t produce any identification. The officer smelled mari-

juana, and both occupants were arrested for possession of a controlled substance. When police searched the vehicle, they found a man’s wallet with identification that suggested the passenger had not been truthful about his name. With the help of a sniffer dog, police discovered powder cocaine, rock cocaine, and heroin stuffed down the front of the passenger’s pants. A small amount of loose, fresh marijuana was located in the centre console.

Police found almost $1,000 in cash, four cellphones and fake ID in a wallet and purse in the vehicle. All were seized. The driver was released from custody. Police will recommend a charge of fraud for the fake identification. The Langley teen was held in custody and faces possible charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, obstructing a peace officer, and two counts of breach of probation.

Langley Pirate candidate ran a zero-dollar election campaign Craig Nobbs says he spent no money at all on May 2 federal election campaign DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

Elections Canada didn’t report the financials of Langley Pirate Party Candidate Craig Nobbs from the May 2 federal election because there weren’t any to disclose, he said Thursday (Dec. 29). “I spent no money at all to run my campaign during the past elec-

tion,” Nobbs told The Times after Elections Canada released candidate expense reports from the May 2 federal election and left Nobbs online report blank. Nobbs said he filed his documentation within the four-month deadline for candidates and has received his deposit back. “As for the amount that I spent and filed in the documentation, the

amount was $0.00,” Nobbs noted in an email to The Times. That would make Nobbs’ campaign the most cost-effective of the Langley contest by a big margin. In the vote that re-elected incumbent Conservative MP Mark Warawa, Nobbs finished last with 355 votes or 0.7 per cent, but placed first on the list of thriftiest campaigns with a zero-dollars-per-vote ratio. Second-place NDP candidate Piotr Majkowski ran the second most cost-effective campaign, spending about $1.45 in for every vote he got.

Third-place Liberal candidate Rebecca Darnell ran the costliest campaign on a per-vote basis at $7.66. Each candidate in the Langley riding was allowed to spend up to $93,931.03 based on the number of electors in the riding. Warawa, the winner, spent the most — $53,982.10 or 57 per cent of the maximum allowable to win with 35,569 votes or 64.5 per cent of the total number of ballots (54,320). On a per-vote basis, Warawa ran the third most costeffective campaign at $1.55.

Keep focus on students

What’s fare is fare


angley schools are back in session, and the next few months will be critical ones for students, teachers and parents. The B.C. Teachers Federation has been on strike since September. Teachers are still reporting for work and teaching students in the classrtoom. But they are not meeting with parents, or doing anything other than informal reports on student progress. Bargaining continues, but it seems that neither side is willing to budge. The provincial government has come up with a “net zero” policy which precludes wage increases. It expects public school employers to abide by this. On the other side, the BCTF has asked for big pay increases and changes to contract language that would give them more time off during the school year for personal reasons. The BCTF also wants more control over class sizes and composition. While these are very important issues which affect the education of children, this should not be something that comes under union control. Individual teachers, for the most part, do a great job in teaching students. B.C.’s public school system is a good one. Many students graduate and go on to do great things in their lives, and the underpinning they received in school is a key factor. But there are many students who don’t do well, and there needs to be a renewed emphasis by both the government and the union on improving the graduation rate, boosting literacy and numeracy and ensuring that each Grade 12 student has the opportunity to go on to post-secondary training that will enable them to live a meaningful and productive life. For far too long, the talk about education in this province has revolved around the boards of education, management, principals and teachers. Yes, these are the people entrusted with providing a good education to students and, as stated above, for the most part that’s exactly what they are doing. However, there needs to be far more focus on students. They are the centre of the education system. They are the reason that teachers and principals have jobs. They are the reason that boards of education exist. They are the underpinning of the future, because B.C. will go nowhere without a highly-educated population. This is more true than ever in an increasingly interconnected world. Is it too much to ask that the education system be far more studentfocused for the remainder of the school year, and in the future? We certainly hope not.

magine going to a restaurant for a $5 steak dinner, but when you get there you discover being seated at a table will cost you $5, a surcharge of $7 for the plate and utensils and another $4 for the server to take your order. Add on the tip and HST and suddenly your cheap meal has become an expensive night out. That’s how Canada’s airlines have been allowed to operate. It’s marketing strategy – advertise only the base cost of the ticket, with the full price of that ticket, including all its various surcharges, fees and taxes revealed when the purchaser is about to commit. Consumer advocates have been complaining about it for years. In fact, the federal government did do something about it, adding the “allin-one” airfare advertising clause to the Canadian Transportation Act in June 2007. But lobbying by the airlines, which claimed the new pricing policy would put them at a disadvantage to foreign airlines who could continue to advertise only their base fares on their own websites, has delayed its implementation for years. That’s about to change. European airlines have been required to advertise the complete cost of a ticket since 2008. In January, American airlines will also fall in line with all-in airfares. The competitive disadvantage argument no longer exists. So why will Canadian consumers have to wait another 12 months for a five-year-old law to finally be enforced? While it’s likely that only the most naive traveler believes they could actually travel to England for $99, requiring the airlines to be up front when advertising their fares will empower consumers when making the best choice for their travel spending. – Vernon Morning Star

letters ‘Carnival’ ‘Scrooged’ again by TransLink The

Langley Times

combined music, poetry and visual arts Editor: I want to express my appreciation to all the partners who helped produce the recent Carnival of the Animals concert at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. The Carnival of the Animals presented by the Kwantlen Polytechnic Orchestra in Residence on Nov. 25, partnered with students from local elementary schools, who produced large art pieces for the show — some of them three feet by four feet in size. Seventeen of these works provided the back-drop on stage for the production which also featured student poetry — read by the students themselves — several dances performed by local students from the elementary schools and also 11 student pianists. The students worked in collaboration with professional musicians from the university under the direction of Dr. Wayne Jeffery and Dr. Calvin Dyck. There were three performances at Kwantlen Polytechnic University with hundreds of students attending and participating. I strongly believe that this is the future of the arts, and that it is a wonderful model of collaboration to involve not only the university students, but also students from the local music academies and the local elementary schools. Thanks to all the teachers who worked with the students on the collaborative project, to the Langley Times for helping to promote the event, and to the university which provided funding for the project. Dr. Calvin Dyck, Kwantlen Polytechnic University Music Dept. The

Editor: Thank you Mr. Scrooge (TransLink) for dropping yet another threat of more taxes on the poor taxpayer. This was done just in time for Christmas. When people shop, they go to where they can get what they want at the best price, and the price that they can afford. In Aldergrove, we are blessed with the Shell station at the corner of Station Road and Fraser Highway, where the price of gas is much lower than stations within the Metro Vancouver area. Of course we are going to go out of our way for cheaper gas. It’s no different than going to a store that has lower prices for a jacket or dress or even groceries. You otherwise might pay a premium price at a higherpriced store. It’s our right to shop around and get the best bang for our

Doughnut congestion is the great concern? Editor: Re: “Township councillor warns of congestion,” ( Are we missing something here? There is global pollution caused in part by motor vehicles. We have increasing medicare costs that could be reduced if people exercised more. But the only concern expressed about people sitting waiting for coffee and doughnuts in a line of idling vehicles is what about the 20th vehicle and the congestion it may cause. No worries, we have a bylaw for that. Why isn’t the council being more proactive about limiting vehicle emissions? John Keightley, Langley

buck. But TransLink seems to think that it should have control of how and where we spend our money, particularly when it comes to gasoline. TransLink appears to be having a problem with the concept of people trying to be prudent with their hard-earned cash. We can’t keep going to our employer and asking for more money to pay our living expenses. We don’t have ‘money trees’ growing in our backyard. Now TransLink wants to get the federal government involved in its money problem. Will we have to start showing ID at the Shell station, so that they can charge us a premium because we live in Metro Vancouver? What are they working on with Washington State regarding gas prices near the border? Are they going to work out a deal over the border where our

salary increases, shame on them. These people were elected by us to use our tax monies fairly and effectively. It is apparent that is not going to happen because we now have to pay for their massive salary increases. Many of the mayors voted to increase gas taxes, which ironically will now only partially help with TransLink’s woes with the Evergreen Line. All these can only mean higher property taxes to pay for increased salaries, gas taxes and penalties for living in rural areas. Not too long ago, I wrote a letter to the editor about TransLink, in which I stated that it wouldn’t be long before it would have its hat out to us again. Well, here we go again. It just never ends. Oh, what a tangled web we weave. D. Atkinson, Langley

licence plate automatically initiates a higher charge. When it comes to the vehicle levy or road pricing, how are they going to calculate these? Do we have to attach ‘Big Brother Monitors’ to our vehicles so TransLink knows how much to tax us or charge us? It’s just another penalty for using our vehicles, living in rural areas, and having little or no option. I work hard for my money and no one has the right to tell me where to spend my money and take more money out of my pocket because they can’t figure out how to work with the money they already receive from us. Perhaps if they had been proactive in dealing with fare evaders since 1996, they wouldn’t be in this predicament. In Langley Township, we just elected a new mayor and council. They have just received hefty

Transit fare system is killing golden goose Editor: It seems, at least according to an article I read in the Langley Times, that BC Transit is at it again, crying poverty. They should remember their childhood stories when wondering about the drop in revenue. I am referring, of course, to the one in which the giant kills the golden goose because he was trying to make it lay more golden eggs. You see, they always had a moral. Do these people live in a parallel world detached from reality? It should be obvious that people will do anything to avoid giving in to a group which believes it has an unlimited source of revenue. Only 15 minutes to the south our American neighbours pay 15 cents a litre in gas tax. We pay 45 cents and they want to add more. Didn’t we just pay another two cents for carbon tax? This is becoming a joke. I have some novel ideas. How about we try a user-pay formula for all transit and ensure that all who ride the SkyTrain actually pay for it. Perhaps we should think about improving a system that, at present, is just OK if you want to get to a shopping mall.

What about the folks who need a ride to work in an industrial park? Remember, the goal is to get them out of their cars. Depending on where you live, it currently takes two buses to go from Walnut Grove to Willowbrook Mall. Why should drivers always provide support for a system they don’t use? Why should we be taxed several ways to support a system and its leaders who, quite frankly, could not organize a children’s party? When our leaders ask how are we going to pay for the new highways my answer would be what did you do with the funds that were collected from baby boomers 40 years ago under the guise of building better roads and health care, everyone knows Highway 1 from the Port Mann bridge is the same as it was in the the late ’60s except for the odd pot hole they have filled. Please let us all get these pigs away from the public trough. Bring back some accountability or the standard of living in this country will continue to be eroded P G Taylor, Langley

Derelict Fort house to be demolished NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

An old house that occupies one of the most strategic corners of Fort Langley is to be demolished. As the property is located in the Fort Langley Heritage Conservation Area, the owner was required to secure a heritage alteration permit. This permit was granted by Township council on Dec. 12. For several years, the house and a smaller building at 9166 Glover Road have been poorly maintained, and although the house lies within the heritage conservation area it is not on the Township’s Heritage Inventory nor has it been considered for inclusion on it.

In the permit application, owner Statewood Properties said that without a demolition permit the property “will transition into a visual blight within the heart of Fort Langley’s commercial core.” If the house, built in the 1940s, were to be kept, it would require significant repairs, including a new roof, electrical upgrades and extensive interior renovations. This significant expense cannot be justified, given the amount of rent the property generates, the owner said. Statewood noted that the land lies opposite the Fort Langley Community Hall which is a major attraction in the village and hosts many weddings and other events throughout the year. Frank Cox, who chairs the Fort Lang-

ley Community Association, agreed that the buildings should be torn down. “We don’t believe that this is representative of our heritage,” he told council. Responding to a question about the property’s future after the buildings have been demolished, head planner Ramin Seifi advised that the property owner “is committed to keep the site green.” While the public will have access to the green space, “the use could change,” Seifi said. The property is zoned commercial. Statewood principal Eric Woodward said later that the buildings will probably be demolished in January, and redevelopment will happen “in the next few years.”

Arctic Air lands in Aldergrove Written by Langley’s Ian Weir, new CBC drama which premieres on Jan. 10 features actor Adam Beach among other Canadian talent TRICIA LESLIE Times contributor


ursting with positive energy, Adam Beach arrives on the Arctic Air set in Aldergrove with smiles and friendly greetings for everyone. The Canadian-born Saulteaux actor is known for his roles in such works as Flags of Our Fathers — for which he received multiple Best Supporting Actor nominations — Windtalkers, Joe Dirt, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Cowboys and Aliens, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and the HBO series Big Love, among others. Now, he’s focusing on a new CBC series, Arctic Air, where a set tour was recently featured as part of a CBC event that introduced Adam the new series (as well as another new show, Mr. D) among the return of other popular CBC shows, such as Little Mosque on the Prairie, Republic of Doyle and Marketplace. Beach, who was born in Manitoba and grew up with his two brothers on the Dog Creek First Nation Reserve, said he was sold on doing the show once he read the script. “When I read the script, it had it all ... it’s about family, it’s about the north and aboriginal life — it’s about people’s daily struggle to just survive, something I think everyone can identify with,” Beach says, with an infectious grin. “It was a perfect script; a perfect match. I wanted to do it and I’m still excited about it.” So is writer-producer Ian Weir, who created the fictional series for Vancouver’s Omni Productions and is an executive producer with three others on the new show. Weir, a Fort Langley man who grew up in Kamloops, said he was pleased and intrigued when Omni — which also produces the History Channel’s documentary series Ice Pilots NWT – approached him to write a pilot about flying in Canada’s north. With past works that include the teen drama Edgemont and the miniseries Dragon Boys, Weir jumped on the opportunity to “do something special.” “I fell in love with the chance to create this kind of show, especially because it’s based in the north,”

Weir says. “The north has always been a part of Canada and I think it lends itself to so many ideas. It’s got action and adventure, but also drama . . . it’s different.” Beach plays Bobby Martel in the character-driven, one-hour show about a maverick airline and the extended family of the unconventional people who run it. Beach’s character is the “headstrong business partner” who saves the airline from crashing and each week, the pilots — the actors who play pilots actually flew with the real-life pilots of Buffalo Air to get an idea of what a northern pilot’s life is really like — take on any number of flights each week, whether to secret diamond mining sites, on rescue missions or as polar bear watching guides. Beach Inside the arctic air Arctic Air set, which is actually a massive wooden barn with soaring ceilings, there are lights, lifts, cables and filming-related equipment everywhere, yet all is neat and organized, with everything in its place. The hundreds, if not thousands, of cords and cables snaking through the building are contained tidily under yellow-lined plates (to avoid anyone tripping over them) and line the barn walls like loose wallpaper. Several people on set chat, text, tweet or email on their cellphones; one technician works on a laptop with a sound board in front of him. In the middle of one of the largest areas, the fuselage of a huge DC-3 plane (brought up from the States just for the show) takes centre stage. It even boasts a removable cockpit that rolls away, so crews can better film the actors. Several other aircraft are used in the show, but the DC-3 is the largest. Beach and Arctic Air co-stars Pascale Hutton, Leah Gibson and Stephen Lobo (all of whom are Canadian; Hutton currently lives in Burnaby) lead media on a set tour, starting with the DC-3, which gets crowded and cramped, fast. “Now, when you see the show, with 20 of us on here — including fighting — you’ll have a new appreciation for how much work goes into it,” Beach notes to the gathered media.

“It’s about people’s daily struggle to just survive, something I think everyone can identify with.”

Adam Beach, star of CBC’s new drama Arctic Air, sits inside an Aldergrove barn on a set intended to re-create Yellowknife’s Bullocks Bistro. Much of the series, which premieres on Jan. 10 is shot in rural Langley, however some of the exterior scenes have been filmed in the Northwest Territory.

Arctic Air a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;collaborative effort, great storyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from PAGE 15

He finds it frustrating to work in the cockpit, because it is such a small space and most of the time, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a green screen in front of the actors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I move? I need to use body language!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Beach says, demonstrating with his hands. And, Hutton chimes in, Beach is still learning the finer points of the planeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cockpit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Adamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s floundering (in the show), he actually means it!â&#x20AC;? she quips with a grin. Beach agrees good-naturedly and gives Hutton credit for her plane knowledge. While much of the show is filmed in the Aldergrove barn, some exteriors are shot in Yellowknife. But the crew have brought Yellowknife to the Aldergrove set with interiors featuring the airline office, a hotel lobby, and a bar set which is based on Yellowknifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actual Bullocks Bistro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We heard that Bullocks had the best fish and chips in North America, so we had to go,â&#x20AC;? says co-executive producer Gary Harvey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The food was good, but what was really great was the setting, so that was what we based this place on.â&#x20AC;? Another inspiration was Yellowknifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Explorer Hotel, which is the Frontier Hotel in Arctic Air â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a hotel lobby created in the barn that features a huge rock fireplace, an antler chandelier, animal heads on the wall, a mounted fish and a bowl of red apples laid out in front of the fire, among other detailed props. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing to come to work every day,â&#x20AC;? says Hutton.

Hutton is pleased to work on a Canadian production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very collaborative effort, but beyond that, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great story,â&#x20AC;? she says.

Eagles soar to gold A pair of Langley hockey teams were not very generous hosts at a post-Christmas hockey tournament. The Langley A2 Eagles and the Langley A3 Eagles both won gold in their respective divisions at the bantam rep A2/A3 tournament held at Langley Twin Rinks Dec. 26-28. The A2 squad defeated Kamloops 5-2 in the A final while the A3 team shutout West Vancouver 5-0 in the B final. In the A pool, Langleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lone blemish was a 5-5 tie against Semiahoo during roundrobin play. In the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other games, they beat Ridge Meadows 6-2 and Vancouver 5-2. Following their tie against Semiahmoo, they edged Kamloops 1-0. In the semifinals, Langley defeated Cloverdale 5-2 to set up another showdown with Kamloops, who had edged Semiahmoo in the other semifinal. The Langley A3 squad went a perfect 6-0, winning the bulk of their games convincingly. The Eagles won four of their six games by shutout, beating Port Moody, Cloverdale and North Vancouver during pool play by identical 6-0 scores. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lone close game was against West Vancouver, where Langley scored in the final minute to win 5-4. In the semifinals, the Eagles hammered North

Vancouver 8-2 and then won their rematch over West Vancouver 5-0. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Cormick Campbell scored the overtime winner sending the Langley C1 Hitmen to the gold medal. Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal gave the Hitmen a 6-5 victory over Abbotsford C4 in the championship finals of the Abbotsford Minor Hockey Hawks atom C Christmas Tournament, which wrapped up on Dec. 22. The Hitmen were a perfect 5-0 at the tournament. In round-robin play, they defeated Semiahmoo C2 5-4, Abbotsford C4 6-4 and Surrey C6 6-5. In the semifinals, they beat Aldergrove C1 5-3.

Goaltender James Barr makes 33 saves as Langley closes year with shutout win The Langley Rivermen closed 2011 with a dominating performance, shutting out the visiting Nanaimo Clippers 5-0. Goaltender James Barr was full value for his first career BCHL shutout, stopping all 33 shots the Clippers fired his way on Thursday at the Langley Events Centre in junior A hockey action. Aidan Cavallini and Mario Puskarich scored in the first, while Evan Campbell and Chris Tracy found the back of the net in the second. Campbell’s second of the night closed out the scoring in the third. Langley now hits the road for six games to start 2012 with three games in three nights beginning Thursday (Jan. 5) in Powell River.

The Rivermen also have stops in Nanaimo and Port Alberni. The Cowichan Valley Capitals continue to have the Langley Rivermen’s number. The Capitals remained perfect against the Langley junior A hockey club, defeating the Rivermen 6-1 on Wednesday (Dec. 38) in the first day of BCHL action following the holiday break. Cowichan Valley improved to 3-0 against Langley this season. And it was a pair of Langley Minor Hockey Association products who did the bulk of the damage. Rookie defenceman Kyle Becker had a goal and two assists, while BCHL veteran Richard Vanderhoek notched three assists.

Darnell Dyck had the lone Langley goal, which came early in the second to cut the deficit to 2-1. ••••• In their final game of 2011, the Aldergrove Kodiaks fell 3-2 to the Abbotsford Pilots. The two junior B hockey clubs squared off on Dec. 23 at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena. After Aldergrove’s Stephen Ryan opened the scoring, Abbotsford responded with three goals to finish the period up 3-1. Samuel Ramsey got the Kodiaks within one with a short-handed goal late in the second, but Aldergrove could not get the equalizer. The loss cut the Kodiaks lead to four points over Abbotsford atop the PIJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference. The Kodiaks are back in action on Wednesday (Jan. 4) when they host the Mission Icebreakers at Aldergrove Arena.

But the Clan womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team scored the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final 11 points to win 56-50 in nonconference action at the Langley Events Centre on Thursday (Dec. 30). The Spartans trailed by 10 after the

first quarter, but used a strong second quarter to get back into the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to convince our girls that defence does feed the offence. And that was one of the adjustments that we made in the second quarter, we had more defensive pressure and got some rebounds, which resulted in easy looks,â&#x20AC;?said coach Cheryl Jean-Paul.

TRAVEL FULLERTON, Shirley Dianne June 19, 1949 - Dec. 22, 2011

Shirley was taken from us very suddenly by complications from cancer which she had been battling for two years. She is predeceased by her mother, Myra (2007) and survived by a devoted family including her father, John (age 94); sister Julia; husband of 44 years, Gary; son Dennis (Ronda) and granddaughters Lyndsay and Jolie; son Randy (Vickie) and grandson Cole. Shirley could light up a room with her bubbly personality and happy laugh; she loved her grandchildren, her cat Buzz, a beer and a party, and her large circle of friends and relatives. Shirley also loved to travel, especially to Europe, and in the last 15 months enjoyed three more trips with Gary on a European river cruise, a cruise to Hawaii, and a trip to Mexico. She was an accomplished curler, passionate about her twice weekly tennis, dedicated to her golf ladies, and a respected sales rep of BIC Inc. Flowers are respectfully declined, however a contribution in Shirley’s name to the B.C. Cancer Agency, Abbotsford, B.C. will be appreciated. The care Shirley received from her cancer team was outstanding. A Celebration of Life will held on Sunday, January 22nd, at the Langley Golf and Banquet Centre, 21550 44th Ave., Langley, B.C. between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
