Langley crash kills Abbotsford resident


High speed is believed to be the cause of a single-vehicle crash that killed a 32-year-old Abbotsford man Saturday night in Langley. RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen said three witnesses at the scene stated they saw Jeremy Joseph Pinette, 32, travelling at about 160 km/h before his green Dodge Viper entered the grassy median on Highway 1 at 248 Street. The vehicle rolled over and pinned him, killing him instantly. Pinette was the sole occupant of the vehicle. Thiessen said a Langley RCMP officer had

In the 10 months since Langley resident Alvin Wright was shot and killed in his home by an RCMP officer, his orphaned infant daughter Alyssa has celebrated her very first birthday, the number of members on his Facebook memorial page has grown to 220 and the officer who fired the fatal shot has returned to work. Meanwhile, the police investigation of the shooting is still underway. But it may finally be coming to a close, with word Monday (June 6) that a final report is being compiled by Vancouver Police Department (VPD) investigators. The 22-year-old Wright died August 6 after police were called to his Langley City home about a reported domestic dispute. Langley RCMP called in the VPD to investigate. On Monday, in response to a query by The Times, VPD spokesperson Const. Lindsey Houghton emailed a brief written statement that appears to indicate the investigation may be nearing an end. “The final report is currently

first seen the Viper just before 10 p.m. travelling west on 56 Avenue towards 264 Street in Aldergrove. The officer turned around and activated his emergency lights, but the Viper was no longer in sight. The officer turned off his emergency equipment and did not pursue the car, Thiessen said. He then headed west along Highway 1 and noticed traffic slowing at around 248 Street, where the Viper could be seen upside down in a ditch. Lower Mainland District Port Mann Traffic Services was dispatched to the scene.

being compiled and all of the information is being examined and reviewed by several internal sources,” Houghton said. “The investigators have no sense of when it might be concluded other than it will be concluded once they’ve exhausted the investigation and all evidence and information gathered has been reviewed and analyzed.” Houghton was unable to say whether VPD officers have completed all their interviews. “I’m not Alvin privy to the Wright investigation so I don’t know who has and hasn’t been interviewed,” Houghton said. “That will all be in the final report and if anyone who has information hasn’t spoken to our investigators, then they should do that as soon as possible, as we want to have the information of everyone with knowledge of the incident.” Some of Wright’s friends hope to organize a protest in August to mark the first anniversary of his death.

Media reports indicate Pinette was a Hells Angels associate who grew up in Langley but had been living in Abbotsford in recent years. He did not have a criminal record, according to the provincial court database, but had been charged with a dozen driving offences since 2002 including speeding, and driving without due care and attention. When contacted by the Abbotsford News, Pinette’s father, Roger, declined to comment. Any witnesses to the accident who haven’t yet spoken with police are asked to contact Const. Becker at Port Mann Traffic Services, 604-526-9744.

• Canucks Fever

LEC screenings still up in the air As of Tuesday afternoon, there was still no word on whether hockey fans will be able to watch the NHL Stanley Cup Finals on the big screen at the Langley Events Centre. Game four of the Vancouver CanucksBoston Bruins final is scheduled for today (Wednesday) with game five on Friday. But the Langley Events Centre is booked on the game nights for the facility’s teams and community partners, meaning that in order to show the game, those groups would need to be rescheduled or relocated. As the series progresses, the staff at the Langley Events Centre will continue to evaluate, on a game-to-game basis, whether there is a possibility of showing the game on the big screen.


Dan FERGUSON/Langley Times

A small group of Routley parents staged an early morning walk to school on Tuesday to demonstrate the impact of the Langley school district’s decision to cancel a planned school in their neighborhood in favour of another site a long distance away. The trip across 200 Street to Willoughby Elementary took about an hour.

Routley parents march for school DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

A walk by parents to protest the relocation of a planned school in the Routley neighborhood of Langley didn’t draw the turnout organizers hoped for. A total of 21 participants including school-age children and one baby in a stroller showed up for the 45-minute earlymorning hike to Willoughby Elementary School. It was a disappointing response for parents who sent invitations to 1,200 people, including other parents, local politicians and school district staff. Parent Rena Terry said the absence of elected officials or staff demonstrated an “absolute lack of concern for our children.” The parents oppose a land swap that would see the Routley school site traded for land in the distant Yorkson neighborhood.

The deal would give the district another school site in rapidly-growing Yorkson and the Routley site would become a townhouse project with a public park attached. The walk was a response to district claims that even without their own school, Routley children are still reasonably close to classes, based on provincial education ministry guidelines that set the maximum allowable distance at just over three kilometres. The Routley parents say the walk for their kids is a hazardous one, because it crosses some of the busiest and most accident-prone intersections in Langley, including the congested 200 Street arterial. “Safety is a major, major issue for us,” Terry said. “We really do need a school in our neighbourhood.” The parents also disagree with the district claim that Routley would not qualify for a school of its own because it doesn’t

have enough children. They say district numbers don’t include kindergarten kids or school-age children who live in Routley but can’t attend local schools for lack of space. The participants included Grade 6 student Sherry Tung, who won an apology from school board chairperson Wendy Johnson during a May discussion of the contentious land swap. When Tung said she was sometimes late for classes because her school is so far away from her home, Johnson suggested the 12-year-old should organize her family better so they get up earlier, a comment that drew jeers from some in the audience. Johnson quickly apologized to Tung, saying she was only trying to lighten the mood. On Tuesday morning, Tung and her parents got up an hour earlier than usual to attend the walk.

Shooting Mountie returned to work two weeks later from PAGE 1

“We have lost a great dad and friend,” states the description for the

Facebook group “RIP Alvin Wright August 2010.” “We will remember you for all the good times.”

Only three new messages have been posted to the page since October. Reports at the time of the August

shooting said Wright and his wife Heather had returned to their Riverside Gardens townhouse after an evening out. They were

accompanied by his brother. There was an argument and someone called 911. When police arrived,

Wright was in an upstairs bedroom of the two-storey townhouse on the southeast corner of 53 Avenue and 203 Street.

Police kicked in the front door around 11:30 p.m. A neighbour told The Times that she heard the sound of two loud gunshots. Wright died at Langley Memorial Hospital early the next morning. The Wrights’ daughter was not at home when the shooting occurred. The Langley RCMP officer who fired the fatal shot was cleared to return to active duty two weeks later.

Return your milk containers with your refundable beverage containers. It’s easy. Quickly rinse them out and crush them. Remove any caps and bring them too, because they get recycled separately. There’s no refund on milk empties because there’s no deposit when you buy, but you’ll be doing the right thing. So on your next trip to Return-It, bring the udder ones too.

A medical problem may be the cause of a multiple vehicle crash near the Surrey-Langley border Thursday night (June 2) that sent two men to hospital with serious injuries. Shortly after 6 p.m. a Chevy pickup truck driven by a 63-year-old Langley man was heading east on Highway 10 when it hit a Honda Prelude operated by another Langley man, also 63, sending the smaller car into a lamp standard at 188 Street. The Chevy then ran a red light and hit an Nissan Exterra SUV driven by a 41-year-old Surrey woman. A fourth vehicle, a Ford Taurus driven by a 21-year-old Langley man, was also hit. Initial reports suggest the Chevy driver may have passed out while at the wheel due to a medical condition. He was evacuated to hospital by air ambulance with serious injuries. He remained in hospital Friday. The driver of the Prelude also suffered serious injuries, police said. The drivers of the two other vehicles escaped with less critical injuries. The Highway 10 –Langley Bypass route between 188 and 192 Streets was closed for several hours. Surrey RCMP Traffic Services is investigating.

â&#x20AC;˘ The Langley Times â&#x20AC;˘ Wednesday, June 8, 2011 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Advertorial â&#x20AC;&#x201D;


A passion for Wine & Food by Theresa Harrett Wine Consultant Langley Liquor Store Located at Fraser Crossing Mall m Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you just love living when the sun is shining, the Canucks are winning, the ďŹ&#x201A;owers are blooming, the golf balls are biting just where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to and you crack open a bottle of Meritage on the sixth hole and ďŹ nd out that the liquid youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drinking is fast becoming your new favorite wine. Who knew that a label donning a sly fox dressed as a man in the middle of the night could be so delicious? Moon Curser Boarder Vines 2009 vintage is all that and more. The wine is a replicated Bordeaux blend consisting of six varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, all of which are in order of percentage. The grapes are all grown in an assorted ďŹ ve Osoyoos East Bench Vineyards. The name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moon Curserâ&#x20AC;? lends itself to a bit of a history lesson regarding border smuggling back in the days of the 1860â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gold rush era. The miners working claims in Osoyoos would try to smuggle gold into the U.S. without leaving a little for the guards on their way through. If the Moon was out it made smuggling an almost impossible task and gunďŹ ghts would ensue. On the back of the label the words that are written as such â&#x20AC;&#x153;Damn you moon for lighting my run tonight. This gold is mine, and no border agent is going to tax me.â&#x20AC;? The ďŹ&#x201A;avor proďŹ le of Border Vines is an inviting taste sensation consisting of ripe local blackberries, dark plump cherries with a dollop of cassis. The Carmenere (while not a typical grape varietal used in a Bordeaux blend) adds notes of toasted black pepper complimented by sweet dried spices. The ďŹ nish of this wine has just enough tannin on the back end to warrant pairing with some of my favorite dishes this season. At the time we happened to be nibbling on a variety of cheeses, beef prosciutto, thin crisp wafers and dark chocolate. None of which are in order of consumption but all of which tasted elegantly delicious with this wine. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say my golf swing improved but the game itself was fantastic. Congratulations to Blasted Church which recently won â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Red in Canadaâ&#x20AC;? at the 2011 All Canadian Wine Competition. If you have never sampled a bottle from this winery, I am afraid you are missing out. The artwork on the label in itself is worth checking out even if it is minutely contentious to some of the population. A small sample of this wine is enough to make believers of the entire congregation. Blasted has done an amazing job developing the character of the winery while keeping the liquid in all of their bottles pure, uncomplicated and delicious. Even the youngest of pallets can pick up the essence of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee with a bouquet leading with cherry, blackberries, plum, and vanilla. There is also a diatribe of tasting notes for this wine best left to wine snobs and judges. I say make it simple and try the wine and while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at it check out their web-site it is fun and informative, better yet, buy the wine and have it tonight. Spark up that BBQ, sear your favorite part of the cow add a pinch of delicious side dishes and you will have a match made in heaven. On Fathers Day Gentlemen, be sure to put your feet up and enjoy the day with glass in hand.


Landfill lawsuit dismissed Ruling â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;confirms public right to speak up when the environment is put in jeopardy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; say Ecojustice lawyers KURT LANGMANN Black Press

The B.C. Supreme Court has dismissed a multi-million dollar defamation lawsuit against Langley residents who had spoken out about their concerns over a large landfill application in Aldergrove. In a decision handed down on May 25 the Honourable Madam Justice Bruce dismissed all claims made by Robin Scory against the Glen Valley Watershed Society (GVWS) and Sian Krannitz. The case was heard May 3 in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack. Scory had launched the suit after applying to deposit a large amount of fill on his land at 7306 264 St. He had made a claim for $5.5 million against each of GVWS and Kranntiz, as well as $2 million claim against Jack Dewitte. Dewitteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument for dismissal was heard separately and a judgment has not yet been issued in his case. Concerned the proposed fill would

erode into fish-bearing streams, Krannitz and GVWS spokesperson Joan Martin voiced their reservations to various levels of government last year. When the project was put on hold by the Township of Langley for further review, Scory sued GVWS and two citizens for speaking out against the project, claiming they had, among other things, defamed him. The ruling states that the judge found no evidence to back the lawsuit, adding that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;claimant has greatly exaggerated the statements made by the respondents and has fabricated other allegations concerning their conduct and statements.â&#x20AC;? GVWS was represented by Ecojustice lawyers Tim Leadem and Jennifer Agnolin, who said in a joint statement that the ruling â&#x20AC;&#x153;confirms the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to speak up when the environment is put in jeopardy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This case is a clear statement that meritless lawsuits against people who speak up for the environment will not stand,â&#x20AC;? said Agnolin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Citizens are the best keepers of their local environment,â&#x20AC;? Agnolin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have the right to freely speak up about projects they think will harm their environment without fear of being sued. This decision protects that right.â&#x20AC;? In her ruling Madame Bruce said, â&#x20AC;&#x153; was not the acts of the respondents that prevented the claimant from creating farmland out of his property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The decision to issue a permit for the

fill deposit rested with the Township of Langley and the Agricultural Land Commission. The respondents could not prevent these government bodies from issuing a permit to the claimant if he satisfied all of their requirements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The respondents merely exercised their right of free speech to voice objections to the proposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was nothing objectionable or unlawful about their conduct in this regard.â&#x20AC;? The judge concluded that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The claimantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notice of claim must therefore be dismissed with costs to the respondents.â&#x20AC;? However, Agnolin told Black Press that Scory filed an appeal of the judgment on the same day it was issued, and the respondents now have to await a decision on this application. Scory has also filed a suit in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver claiming â&#x20AC;&#x153;unreasonable delays and unnecessary expensesâ&#x20AC;? regarding his landfill application by Langley Township and two municipal employees, the Union of B.C. Municipalities, the provincial Ministry of Environment and the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans. In April a Vancouver judge dismissed the lawsuit against the Ministry of Environment and ordered Scory to pay $250 towards costs. The other defendants have also applied to have the lawsuit dismissed.

Subdivision gets the go-ahead NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

A majority vote of Township council has moved another piece of Langley agricultural land closer to urbanization. On May 30, council voted 8-1 to give first and second reading to an application to rezone 11.02 acres for the development of 21 houses. The land consists of three properties at 4386 - 216 St., and 21696 and 21846 - 44 Ave. The owners’ application to exclude the land from the Agricultural Land Reserve was rejected, but the Agricultural Land Commission agreed to subdividing it. This will require rezoning and an amendment to the Township’s Rural Plan, triggering a public hearing.A date has not yet been set. The ALC concluded in March, 2010 that the land “has agricultural capability” and is appropriately designated in the ALR. But it also wrote that the property is “not very suitable for agricultural use.”

The commission refused to exclude the land from the reserve, in part to avoid conflict with the Regional Growth Strategy currently being finalized by Metro Vancouver, and to avoid creating expectations in the rest of the area designated Small Farms/Country Estates without ALC endorsement. At a 2009 public input meeting, resident David Woolley said that the current 4.2 acre zoning allows people to have a small farm while preserving the wooded area, habitat for coyotes and deer. But Alan Hendricks, one of the owners, argued at the time that the dimensions of the property, its long frontage of 2,100 feet and its narrow depth 179 feet, put serious constraint on agricultural use. He said that farm uses are not compatible “with a nice residential neighbourhood across the street.” A report presented to council on May 30 said that the proposed development would provide a buffer between the urban area of Murrayville and the abutting ALR, a buffer which is currently woodland.

Councillor Mel Kositsky was the only one to vote against the rezoning bylaw’s first two readings. “This is setting a bad precedent,” he said, adding that it is premature and may trigger a flood of similar applications. Councillor Grant Ward disagreed. The development will be a “natural buffer.” “I believe that some of 44 Avenue land is not very suitable for agricultural purposes. In other words, it never will be. It will not add anything in the future,”Ward said. Tom Reinhart, who lives south of the property, was one of the speakers at the 2009 meeting. He drew attention to what he saw as the erosion of the ALR with the development of large “estate” homes. Reinhart, who amalgamated two 10-acre properties in the 1990s to enhance the agricultural capability of both, said at the time: “All of us in farming depend on the availability of land. I don’t mean cheap land, but land that we can (affordably) buy, and grow on. We (farmers) are a dying breed.”

Family grateful for all the support from PAGE 5

Calls have come from Tanzania and Puerto Vallarta, the Dominican Republic and Ontario. The Welch’s have also been given great support from their church congregation. “I’ve got friends here that will look after me no problem. My friends are very encouraging,” said Elaine.“The only problem is they keep bringing

cookies and donuts and now I’m gaining weight,” she joked. John is extremely proud of her for continuing to be spunky and strong, especially when they both know that a darker future is ahead. “She is usually a feisty person so its hard for her to be immobile,” he said.“She gets down once in a while because she can’t do much. But she’s very upbeat, amazingly.”

Let’s hear about FCM

A lot to lose in postal strike


he current convention of the Federation of Canadian Municipaliuties, taking place in Halifax, serves to remind Langley taxpayers why they need to vote in this November’s municipal elections. Despite a great deal of concern about tax increases, which average almost five per cent in Langley Township and slightly less in the City, most members of the two councils are at the Halifax junket. In fact, most of them usually attend FCM meetings every year. What do taxpayers receive in return? A few councillors give reports of the seminars they attended, and what ideas they picked up, but very few have translated into long-term cost-saving ideas. The most prominent FCM idea to be used in recent years in Langley has been an exchange program, facilitated by FCM, between Langley Township and San Fernando, Philippines. While this sharing of knowledge has been a good thing, particularly for the recipient in the Philippines, it is hard to point to many other concrete achievements that have come as a result of regular attendance at annual FCM meetings. Perhaps they could take a lesson from Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who was elected last fall on a platform of trimming Toronto’s bloated city budget and giving taxpayers more value for their dollars. He decided not to attend the FCM meeting, saying he can be more effective back in Toronto. A dozen of his council colleagues did go to Halifax, however. While no one is suggesting that Langley politicians don’t work hard, some of them seem to view the FCM trip as an annual junket they are entitled to. This is wrong. The number who attend needs to be greatly reduced — perhaps two or three from each council at a maximum. Those who attend should be required to prepare detailed reports on their activities, and these should be given to council at a public meeting, and also posted on the respective City and Township websites. If there are any ideas to be gained at FCM, they should revolve around making do with less. Property taxes cannot keep rising by close to five per cent each year at a time when many people’s incomes are frozen or falling. Restraint begins at home, and by saying “no” to expensive trips across the country. Taxpayers must pay attention to the details of this convention, and consider what they have learned when they vote.

hen it comes to the looming postal workers strike, one question is likely to be asked a lot. Something like this, perhaps: “Who would notice?” But the same factors that make regular “snail” mail less relevant are also likely to turn whatever action the postal workers’ union takes this week into a long one, perhaps rivalling the epic postal strikes of the ’70s and early ’80s. The difference this time is that the union is in a far less strong bargaining position. Courier services and e-mail have cut deeply into Canada Post’s core business — even having bills arrive by e-mail is no longer uncommon, and paying bills electronically is nearing universality — so a postal strike no longer has the possibility of bringing commerce to a standstill. That’s not to say that Canada Post is unnecessary. Social assistance cheques of various kinds still arrive via mail and, except for hand delivery, the mail is the most effective way of getting original copies of documents across the country. But what a strike will do is encourage people to make even more use of direct deposit, electronic communications and courier services as a substitute, hastening the transformation of Canada Post into just another commercial courier service, moving farther away from their prime position of being Canada’s official carrier. Both sides in this dispute have a lot to lose if a strike occurs. We suggest both sides in this issue need to take a step back and consider how the public will react to a strike … and then sit down at the table, and keep at the negotiations until they find a compromise acceptable to both parties. —Penticton Western News (Black Press)

HST will hurt small businesses Editor: There appears to be a growing trend in having ‘professional’ managers of business associations, rather than hiring experienced business people who built up their own businesses. These ‘new leaders’ are usually well-educated in the theory of business but rarely have ever created one themselves. This is exemplified by the present executive director of the White Rock Chamber of Commerce and the CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade. These two smart ladies are pushing the pro-HST line that only benefits Big Business — the type of company that is not typical of these local business organizations. Big businesses that do not sell directly to the B.C. public do benefit from the HST, as

Editor: When the school board ignored all the suggestions to name a new school in Willoughby for a Willoughby pioneer or Willoughby-related geographic name, I didn’t say anything. Now that the Willoughby clear-cut pave-over council has given a new park in Willoughby the same name, enough is enough. This park should be named after a Willoughby pioneer. It seems that the council wants to also pave over Willoughby history. This is ironic, as one of the more appropriate names could have been Jack Bray, an early member of the Township council, who donated the land for the Willoughby Hall. Probably the easiest way to name new schools and parks would be to use the name of the road that the school or park it is being built on. This park could be named for Scholes Road (83 Avenue. Brian Johnson, Willoughby

employ over 90 per cent of the employees and have to operate in a truly competitive market. The small drop in their expenses offered by the HST is no consolation for the significant drop in their sales because of the reduced cash left in the pockets of consumers, after they have paid all these ever-growing taxes. Consumers will be $2 billion poorer with the HST, compared to the PST. This means that most small businesses collectively will be $2 billion poorer. Small business people, do not be conned by Big Business. H. Spencer, Aldergrove

their customers have not had their pockets picked. This is true for both big resource companies (foreign buyers) and the giant construction companies who get their contracts directly from the B.C. government. It is not a coincidence that these two groups form the core of the Smart Tax Alliance, which is spending millions to keep the HST, and also are major contributors to the BC Liberals. It is a tragedy that not enough owners of small businesses in B.C. will not challenge the pro-HST spin that is being put out by their nominal ‘leaders.’ It is small business that is the real economic engine in Canada. Small businesses

Send a message by voting against HST Editor: As we approach the HST referendum, I see the B.C. government has rationalized an advertising budget, using our taxes, of course, to sway our vote to approve it. I have also noticed that more people are talking about the pro’s of the tax. Sadly, the government is once again succeeding in pulling the wool over our eyes. Prior to introducing the HST last year, the Gordon Campbell government saw something in our collective behaviour that enabled them to deny consideration of the HST, and then miraculously within only a few weeks of an election came up with a complex plan to implement it. A flagrant lie, we said at the time, and we demanded they rescind it. OK, we’ll consider

spending our taxes and to smarten up. We’ll tell this Liberal government to back off and start treating taxpayers with respect. We’ll tell them that they have to consult with us before increasing taxes, and to start practising what we taxpayers must do to stave off homelessness — wise budgeting. If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got. We’ve always not done enough to deter government mis-spending. We’ve never done enough to limit tax increases. Isn’t it about time we did something different for a change? Brian G. Wood, Langley

it, but let’s put it to a referendum the government said. Almost a year later, the government again sees something in our collective behaviour to believe it can convince us, after the fact, that the HST is a good thing. We have short memories, they believe. The issue is not whether the HST is a good thing or not. The issue is the arrogance of this government, actually any government, in unceasingly springing tax increases on us without public consultation, while they continue practicing fiscal irresponsibility. Vote against it. In doing so, we’ll tell our municipal, provincial, and federal governments collectively that we recognize their collective bad behaviour when it comes to

SCHOOL WALKS Editor: Re: the Routley school debate. Come now, 3.5 kilometres is not very far to travel to school, especially as no one ever walks to school any more. It’s not like the old days. I distinctly remember walking many miles to school in all kinds of weather — uphill in both directions if memory serves me well. J. Beauman, Langley

Taxes, fees, tolls keep taxpayers empty-handed Editor: What is it that this government doesn’t understand when we, the taxpayers, say “We have no more money?” The carbon tax was supposed to be revenue neutral, and the taxpayer would benefit from tax cuts, which I have yet to see. Now the government is planning on ways to withdraw from this supposedly revenue

neutral bank account, but not without finding ways to keep the balance in the black, by implementing other forms of tax. The provincial government and TransLink are suggesting vehicle levies, road pricing and tolls. These are a flagrant insult to those of us who live in rural areas and, for the most part, have no other viable option but to use our

GOOD TREATMENT Editor: I always hear and read about negative experiences at hospitals, so I would like to write a letter thanking the nurses of the ambulatory care ward at LMH. They were professional, empathetic and above all, had had a great sense of humour. This “healthy young guy” was nervous, and seeing and hearing how efficient the nurses were helped me get through my procedure. Great work gals, I look forward to seeing you next year. Andrew Barnes, Langley

Debbie Atkinson, Langley

Electricity exports are good for the province Editor: There was a time back in the 1980s and early 1990s when B.C. was a solid exporter of electricity. Our dams could generate more than we could use, and exporting our surplus was very profitable for us. It brought big money into the province and helped pay for health care, education and all sorts of other government services we expect to have access to.



h ih

Health care and education aren’t getting any cheaper, and using our resources to help pay for the government services we want and expect makes complete sense to me. We need to get back to being a solid electricity exporter rather than being the importers we’ve become. It just makes sense. Sandra Robinson, Maple Ridge

However, we haven’t built any dams since the mid-1980s and now we’re importing electricity. Why have we stopped building dams and profiting from the electricity resources we have, including new sources of electricity like wind energy, tidal power and run-of-the-river hydro? It makes no sense to me that we are not availing ourselves of these exportable resources.

Langley firefighters hose down a fire inside a metal recycling yard near 48 Avenue and 223A Street on Tuesday morning. The accidental blaze apparently started when a chop saw sparked some gas that was left inside the tank of a discarded lawn mower. At its height the fire generated a thick plume of smoke and flames as high as one storey. Two propane tanks exploded before the blaze was brought under control. No one was injured.

Pesticide ban endorsed NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Nine years ago, Port Moody became the first municipality in Western Canada to introduce legislation banning the use of pesticides for cosmetic purposes. While the ban has been imposed sporadically across the country, most Metro Vancouver municipalities have been slow to follow suit. That may change with new Premier Christy Clark, who said recently that she supports a ban on the sale of chemicals to kill weeds and bugs. Clark said she was willing to work with the NDP and the public to fashion the legislation.

Langley Township has been sluggish on taking a position on garden chemicals, but Clark’s words appear to have made an impact on council. Council voted to urge Clark and Langley’s MLAs Mary Polak and Rich Coleman to act swiftly to impose the ban. The issue came up when council discussed Councillor Kim Richter’s motion asking staff to research the practice of other municipalities. Councillor Jordan Bateman said that banning the use or sale of chemicals in Langley creates enforcement issues when residents could quite easily buy them in municipalities which do not have a ban.

Council agreed with Bateman that a letter should be sent to Clark asking for a province-wide ban, and he noted that Clark made the issue a platform when she campaigned for the leadership of the Liberal Party. Any legislation would not be likely to extend to Langley’s vast farming community, which would be insulated from a ban because of right-to-farm legislation. When the issue came before council in 2002, then-mayor Kurt Alberts said that the Township would work with the nursery industry “to come up with a good public education process. I think that is the direction for the future, moving towards less and less use of chemicals.”

Yale treaty is toughest test yet for province Agreement may make or break B.C.’s treaty effort


he treaty with the Yale First Nation in the Fraser Canyon was hastily approved as the B.C. legislature adjourned for the summer last week. This treaty was by far the most significant work of the legislature session, and it may make or break the hugely expensive B.C. treaty effort. Yet it received all of four hours of debate during the abbreviated spring legislature session and will probably get little attention when it reaches the House of Commons for final approval. A few eyebrows were raised when Chief Justice Lance Finch of the B.C. Court of Appeal entered the legislature to give royal assent to the treaty and a handful of other bills. This would normally be the duty of Lieut.-Gov. Steven Point, but he was on a fourday visit to promote literacy at reserves in the Quesnel and Williams Lake area. I’m advised by the lieutenant-governor’s staff that this trip had been scheduled for some time, and his absence had nothing to do with the treaty awaiting his signature. It is purely a coincidence that Point is a former tribal chair of the Sto:lo Nation, which sent a delegation to the legislature to protest the Yale treaty just before it was

At the heart of every soldier there is a strong family, and at the heart of every military family in Canada there is the Military Family Resource Centre. In keeping with the Fraser Valley and its roots, while still finding a new challenge for herself, Louise Smith has been selected as the new executive director of the Mainland B.C. Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC). A Fort Langley resident for more than 15 years, Smith has enjoyed the pace of the Fraser Valley and the work that she has done both in her professional life and with non-profit organizations like the Fraser Valley Women’s Resource Society. “It’s a pace that allows people to get to know each other,” she said. Having worked closely with families for the past seven years at Abbotsford Community Services, Smith will be working with a new set of families with new dilemmas and stresses. “I felt like I was ready to move to something a bit more challenging,” Smith said. The MFRC is a not-for-profit, national organization that helps Canadian military personnel and their families by providing programs and services to help them cope with the military life. More than 1,500 families in the Lower Mainland receive a monthly newsletter from the MFRC and an intensive level of support is offered to a wide range of these families, as well as others deployed from all over Canada. To deal with the constantly changing times, the staff and team at MFRS will constantly have to adapt their strategies to help families cope with their placements and the military life. As executive director, Smith will work with the two Lower Mainland centres, one in Chilliwack and another in Vancouver, with the intent to create two cohesive working environments. Of the staff that Smith will be working with, 50 per cent will come from a military background, which will work in Smith’s favour. Because she does not come from a military background, she will work to understand military operations through working closely with other members of the staff,

The national program helps military families during the various stages of placement and deployment. using their feedback and networking with other centres to help establish a new dynamic. “It’s going to be a lot of conversations, and observations,” Smith said. The programs offered by MFRC help children and families feel more normal in what can be a very hectic military life by offering group, peer and community support. “Their families are really such a key piece of keeping things positive. “We have to be aware of what’s needed out there,” Smith said.

Good deeds don’t go unnoticed NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Good deeds do not pass unnoticed, and in the case of the community-wide Langley Good Deeds, they do not go without reward. On May 26, Dr. Aly Kanani of Langley Orthodontics, Township Councillor Grant Ward, and Jim McGregor, former Langley City fire chief and Times columnist, handed out a number of awards, plaques, and gift cards to the finalists in this year’s Langley Good Deeds event. Among the awards was an Apple iPad2 computer. The participants qualified by raising money for B.C. Children’s Hospital, school carnivals, a Hope for Haiti Talent Show participant, organizing school spirit days, Children’s Festival, volunteering in annual Vaisakhi Parade, raising money for people suffering in Japan, and allowing children and seniors to shower ahead of the youth after swimming at the

Another spent time with senior citizen neighbours, went through the school classroom garbage cans looking for items that should be recycled and put them in the recycling bins, handing in found money to the school principal instead of keeping it. The awards encourage all Langley and surrounding area youth up to 18 years of age to do good deeds and then write an essay detailing what they did, what motivated them to do it, and what they got out of the process. The essays were submitted to Kanani, reviewed by a committee compromised of community members, who then make a blind vote on the finalists. Then a top winner and several other winners were chosen out of the several hundred award

awards in order to help motivate young people to become active in their communities and in turn, instill in them positive qualities, like innovativeness, self-motivation, selfesteem and a desire to help others. “The response has been very humbling,” Kanani commented. “As our committee reviewed the award entries over the past several months, there were numerous entries that brought tears to the eyes of several of us,” he said. “We strongly believe in the great potential of the Langley and surrounding area youth. Numerous schools participated and several hundred entries were received, even from children as young as five years old,” he added. Kanani, a Langley orthodontist, founded

and personally funds the entire administration and giving of these awards. They are presented twice a year to young people in Langley and area. “In today’s world, it is important to acknowledge young people’s good deeds,” Kanani said. “It is not true as portrayed frequently in some media that only bad things are happening. Langley is an amazing culturally rich and diverse city with so many talented young people. By focusing on what is good, we can get a different perspective on our society.” The next Langley Good Deed Awards will be held in October.

New park to honour Fripps A woman whose energy and enthusiasm had an enormous impact on her community will be remembered not only in a school named after her, but now a neighbouring park. Langley Township council announced that a park being built on 83 Avenue in Willoughby will be named Lynn Fripps Park, adjacent to the Lynn Fripps Elementary School currently under construction. “Lynn was an outstanding community volunteer who was dedicated to helping those around her,” Mayor Rick Green said. Fripps’ husband, Simon vander Goes, and their sons Benjamin, Nicholas and Adam, were present for the announcement. Fripps Lynn passed away from breast cancer Fripps in 2005. “She had a huge effect on everything she got involved with,” Green said, adding that “Lynn was always an optimist, always eager to seize the day.” He said that naming the park in Fripps’ honour was a fitting way to commemorate a woman who made a huge impact on the community. Council will advance funding for the park and moving forward with its development this year. Lynn Fripps Park will open in September 2012, when the elementary school is scheduled to open. Lynn Fripps Park will include two soccer fields, and softball diamond for casual use. A children’s playground has already been built at the south end of the site, and the park will share hard court surfaces for sports such as basketball with Lynn Fripps Elementary. Exterior access washrooms and sufficient parking that can be used by park visitors will also be constructed at the school, as part of a joint use partnership that has been established between the Township and the Langley School District.

Why pay a fortune for in those little plastic packages when you can grow your own endless supply. Plant a few in a pot close to the kitchen door, then pop out and snip off whatever you need, whenever you want. Brain surgery it ain’t. Great selection in 4” pots. Reg. 3.69

Kong Coleus

is a great name for this new plant. Ideal in shade or a bit of morning sun, the brightly coloured leaves on this plant will get as big as your face. I was going to say they get as big as another part of your anatomy, but alas I can’t.

'REETINGS/TTER#O OP-EMBERSHIP President’s Message: I am very happy and proud to be Otter Co-op’s newly elf.. elected Board President. I was asked to introduce myself. My name is Frank Hauzer; I was born in Europe and immigrated to Canada in 1960 at the age of ten, and spent six years in central and southern Alberta. Life est progression improved as my parents moved further west verrry to the Vancouver, Lower Mainland area. I have taken every opportunity at formal functions, to thank my parents for having the wisdom to move to this great country. Frank Hauzer President Furthermore, Canadian society and culture has made mee a better person. dreeen My wife Christa and I were married in 1973 and have raised four beautiful children havvve who are now young adults. There are no grand children yet, so in lieu of, we have a house puppy named Lexy whom we adore. We have lived on the same ten acre hobby farm since 1977, which consists of a dozen beef cow/calves, a couple of saddle horses, chickens, etc. In my day job I bottth was employed by BC Hydro as a power engineer. I feel I have had the best of both ot worlds in the sense that if I had a stressful day at the BC Hydro office, when I got home, I could grab a cold drink and head outside to enjoy the simpler things in life even if it was just to scratch a cow on her back. That for me, was the most relaxing, soothing medicine a doctor could ever order. In August 2010 I retired from BC Hydro after 38 years as a power engineer. I thoroughly loved my career with BC Hydro; therefore, one would assume there is no stress involved. Wrong, since retiring, my health has improved immensely. Prior to being elected to the Otter Co-op Board, I served on the board at Consumers Co-op. I played a huge part in the amalgamation process between the two Co-ops. In the past year I have served on the Otter Co-op’s Board as well as sat on the Member Relations Committee. I look forward to the year ahead, working with the great board, management and staff at Otter Co-op. My co-op business philosophy is to diversify and expand. We have an exciting year ahead!

EXCERPTS FROM 2011 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS BRITTANY BERGEVIN Pictured here are District #4 FCL Director Doug Potentier presenting Director Brittany Bergevin with a Level 1 Certificate of Achievement

This year we had twenty-eight grade twelve scholarship applications and seven applications for the Mature Scholarship. The committee had an extremely hard time picking five out of those twenty-eight amazing Grade 12 applications and one from the seven equally amazing Mature applications. One part of the Scholarship requirement is to write a 250 word essay on “What the Co-op Means to Me”. Here are a few excerpts from this year’s applicants: The Co-op’s wide range of services, such as a post office, pharmacy, and

feed production, enables my family to be involved in the Co-op in ma different ways. The Co-op also serves the community in many ways, including through scholarships and community events. The Co-op is environmentally minded, which is an important aspect of any success business. Otter Co-op has many characteristics that I value, and that have been appreciated during my family’s time as a member. ~ Sherisse Roseboo Though the Otter Co-op may just be a grocery store to some but for

many iin the Community h Aldergrove Ald C i iti means so muchh more. It’s I’ a family welcoming place that everyone has a memory there. A place where you can smile, laugh and tell the employees care about your well being. Every community needs local places that show the character of the town, and I’m thankful my community has the Otter Co-op to do this exact thing; it means so many things to so many people. The Co-op means community. ~ Tessa Heath The Otter Co-op has been a part of my life since I was a toddler taking trips with my grandpa to pick up animal feed, scotch mints and gum boots. Since then it has grown into a major supporter of my 4-H career. The Co-op exemplifies true community support by sponsoring numerous car washes, hot dog sales and petting zoos to give youth like myself the opportunity to grow in our respective activities. From Kid’s Club member to scholarship applicant, the Otter Co-op has enhanced and supported my like in many different ways. It continues to do so today. ~ Sabrina Anderson “I got it at Otter Co-op”. This expression has been my familiar phrase for fifteen years. Its meaning has evolved from when I was five to today, but it encompasses all that Otter Co-op means to me from my childhood, pre-teen and teenager experiences. The Co-op has been a stronghold in my past and present. It has built upon my memories, my phases and supported my passions just as my own family has. It has continually grown and changed for the better as I have grown up. Therefore, if you ask where I get my amazing shopping experiences from, all I can say is: “I got it at Otter Co-op”. ~ Kaitlyn Gisler Being a part of the Kids’ Club was a great part of our childhood. Not only were we entitled to free cookies, but we also got to take part in several great community events put on by the club. It is a neighborly place of fun, learning, and development and just generally good shopping that is greatly appreciated by me and many others in the local community. That’s what the Co-op means to me. ~ Brandon VanGenderen

NEWS Tanya Thakur 2010-2011 Junior Director

VOICE OF THEJUNIORDIRECTOR It is now exactly one year after my position as the Junior Director of Otter Co-op began. In that year, I have been exposed to countless opportunities and such incredible experiences that as a 17 year old, I know I’m pretty lucky to have them! Otter Co-op has been one of the bigger highlights of my grade school education and I am a better rounded person because of it. Last year, I remember my Junior Director interview and I have to say, it was extremely intimidating. It was nerve-wracking to be the centre of attention in a room full of knowledgeable adults who asked me questions like, “Where did you get your sources for the essay part of this application?” And I remember thinking, “Oh my gosh! I think they know I used Wikipedia” But panic attacks and sweaty palms aside, I think if I have to summarize my co-op experience and what it has taught me, I’d have to say it’s the importance of community. You see, I moved to Canada about 5 years ago, and so I know what it’s like to be displaced and to not feel a strong connection to one’s community. I was not very acquainted with the idea of co-op’s and their philosophy when I first started. But, in the past year, I too have felt the strong sense of community that drives a thriving business like Otter

A two-week-old veteran of the Metro North train system, my ticket sits clenched in my hand. Another forty-minutes of commute awaits me, along with another fortyminutes of business suit-clad, corporate company. Fortunately, my khakis ensure not too many eyebrows elevate. I’m en route to an internship in Manhattan. My final destination, though, is not an investment bank or consulting firm, but a young nonprofit called “Solar One” - an environmental film/dance/education company. Film, dance, and education, eh? Yes, it’s a slightly difficult organization to explain. Nonetheless, it has allowed me to gain some work experience over the summer, particularly in film, whilst still granting me enough free time during the week to pursue my own independent writing. Perhaps coaxed by the train’s steady rumble, my mind often drifts into thoughts of home - and the future - during the commute. Though only a rising sophomore in college, traveling daily from Connecticut to New York may very well become a full time, if not lifetime, reality. I’d live in the city for my twenties, trading my paycheck for a few hundred elevated square feet. By my thirties, marriage and a forthcoming family would require a home outside the city - and the ensuing commute. “Sir, your ticket please.” Visions of a pragmatic, pre-determined life dissolve into a moustache-adorned man. Grey, wispy hair juts out from his train conductor hat. As I hand him my ticket, I peer out the window. The sight of brick and brown greet me - Harlem - a warning that Grand Central draws near. The station awaits us: the next metallic, life-bearing vessel to replenish and perpetuate the city’s cosmopolitan network. Until August, James McMillan

BULK PETROLEUM JOINS FEED DEPARTMENT Our Bulk Petroleum office is now located in the Feed Store. We have re-aligned our feed store to increase product selection and to include lubes and oils. This will help us to expand our service as lubes and oils will now be available Monday – Saturday 8:00-5:30 pm and Sunday 9:00-5:00 pm. Pictured here is our new Bulk Petroleum truck. It is a 2010 Freightliner Tri-axle. It can carry up to 23,500 litres of fuel in five compartments and has separate hoses for gasoline and diesel. The larger volume will enable us to deliver fuel more efficiently.




3000 miles away, I'm trying my best to maintain a seat on the Canucks' bandwagon. Unfortunately, 6:00pm PST games prove rather difficult James McMillan for someone watching from the Eastern Standard Time Zone. But a few late nights - okay, and I'll admit, a couple missed third periods aside - I've been able to keep up with our playoff run. Twinges of homesickness don't attack all that often, but I'd love to be back home right now, experiencing the Stanley Cup buzz that promises only to further grow over the course of these next two weeks. Chances are, by the time I do return home, the Stanley Cup will be long gone, far off in Europe, maybe Michigan; I don't believe the franchise has enough Canadian players to keep it on Canuck soil by the time August arrives. As I write these words, though, a constant vibration rumbles through my feet. My fingers are pressed against a small cell phone keyboard. The endless grind between railway and train, punctuated by the occasional metallic screech, overwhelms the pitter-patter sound of my fingers tapping away against the plastic keys. An intercom above me exudes a crackle, coughing out static. A thin voice follows: “Express train to Grand Central Station. Express train to Grand Central Station.” The words taper off into a static-ridden silence before rising again: “Please have your tickets ready.”

Moreover, there was a sense of equality which I felt keenly being the only 17 year old there. At workshops and meetings, I was expected to participate and have my say. Being a “youth” did not mean that my views were undermined. In fact, I was asked to make presentations and share my experiences as a Junior Director. In my volunteer experience, I’ve come across so many organizations which use the presence of a youth on a board as merely a PR opportunity. But, Otter Co-op is different because while I am certainly not capable of understanding all of the business jargon, my participation was encouraged and I was given every opportunity to question how a business works, even if they were extremely dumb like “how long is a credit period?” In fact, part of my business course at school requires me to write a 2000 word paper on a local organization, and the management at Otter went out of their way to provide me with the resources I needed. So, I’d like to thank Richard, Jack, Bev and Merilee for being so “co-operative” I’d like to add that attending the Regional meeting and AGM in Saskatoon was one of the times when I realized how unique this position is to our co-operative. Across Western Canada, I was proud to say that Otter Co-op was the only organization which had a student representative. Many directors were interested in what responsibilities my position entailed and impressed with Otter for being so forward thinking and community oriented. Overall, it has been a wonderful experience which has not only allowed me to be a better rounded person but has also enriched my life with wonderful learning experiences. So, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the Directors for offering me this opportunity. Furthermore, I would like to extend my thanks to the membership for making Otter Co-op into the community focused place it is.

Co-op. The position of Junior Director itself represents this philosophy, which is unique to this co-operative. Not only does it let youth like me gain managerial experience, but it’s also part of an outreach effort to strengthen this sense of belonging as one of my most important duties is to communicate the value of being part of such a great community to my peers! In this conflicted world we live in today, to be part of an organization like Otter Co-op with its philosophy of co-operation and respect is a wonderful thing. I have witnessed this numerous times in board meetings where even though everyone may possess different outlooks, there is a sense of respect even if there is a difference of opinion. This experience also held true at the regional and national conferences in Calgary

Ideas born in a barn Ten years ago, Bernie Major cleaned out an old barn on his south Langley property and began an artists group Solo Exhibit by Bernard Major

Egypt Date:...............................Saturday, June 11 Time: .................................... 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Venue: ................... Frames West Gallery #105-22259 48 Ave.

Info:............................................ 604-530-9015 BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter


ate on a rainy spring afternoon, four artists are lounging behind their easels in an old barn at the back of a south Langley property. While the sky continues its seemingly relentless assault — soaking the surrounding woods and lush green pastures — inside Bernie Major’s barn, it’s warm and dry, as Major, Dianne Lynne, Bette Laughy and Carole Rayer wrap up an afternoon’s painting with a bit of chit chat. They are the last of the eight member group, known collectively as the Artists of Bernie’s Barn, to finish up for the day, and the conversation soon turns to the group’s latest projects and exhibits, as well as some of the more exotic — and sunny — locations they’ve visited in pursuit of their craft. The sun-drenched land and cityscapes of Mexico and Italy, Turkey, Egypt and France have all provided the artists with a bit of a change from the grey-green light typical of B.C.’s temperate rain forests. In fact, for some of the members, it was during these trips abroad that they first met other members of the group, which formed a decade ago. Rayer, currently working on a large Mediterranean-inspired street scene in shades of gold, brown and turquoise, met fellow Bernie’s Barn artist Lynne and her husband, Rick McDiarmid, at a course McDiarmid was teaching in France. Laughy, meanwhile, came to the group through its other founding member, Stu Richardson, with whom she once taught at Kwantlen. Various connections eventually brought together nine artists to meet each Thursday afternoon, for a few hours spent painting, critiquing one another’s pieces, or just enjoying each other’s company as they work inside the old barn with its unpainted wood walls. Today, the space practically screams artists’ studio, but 10 years ago, the message was more ‘disaster zone,’ Major laughs. “There were no windows, and it was full of all the junk from me living here and the people before me living here,” he said. So he got busy cleaning. Once Major had the space cleared, he had it wired, laid carpet and fitted it with a small kitchen area for the artists’ weekly potluck lunches. Then he cut a few holes in the barn walls to let in some natural light and had a black cast iron stove installed in the centre of the room so the group can work year round in the uninsulated building. “The rest is just a hodge podge,” Major said. “But it’s the perfect studio, because

But he continues to appreciate the camaraderie the seven women provide with each weekly visit. “Artists tend to be solitary people, so it’s nice when you can be with a bunch of people,” he said. “We nurse each other along, because you

don’t always see your own mistakes.” There are no rules and no fees; the artists come and go as they like. Having no commitment creates a sort of commitment in its own right, they say. “I like it because I know I’m going to paint at least one day a week,” said Laughy. Being part of the group has also given them a rare opportunity to pay tribute to their late friend. After Richardson died, his wife found a number of his unfinished pieces and gave them to the barn group. They’ve each taken a painting or two to complete, working, whenever possible, from the same photos Richardson used. Trying to remain true to the vision of the artist

who had a strong background in graphic design, has meant working outside their usual styles, and that’s a challenge they’ve embraced. “It’s been quite an experience,” said Major, “because we all paint differently, and none of us paint like Stu.” Lynne, for instance, started working on a partially completed landscape painting — carrying on in the direction the artist was going in his depiction of the trees, rocks and water — or so she thought. “I painted the whole thing in the colours he was kind of using — these bright colours,” Lynne said. “Then Bernie found the pictures (Richardson was working from) and so, I’m just repainting it again,” she added with a sort of combination laugh and sigh. Over the years, when they’ve completed enough work to display, the group puts on an exhibit as they did last month at the Newton Cultural Centre. Knowing they have a show coming up gives the artists focus, said Major. Because of the limited gallery space available in Langley, the group has exhibited mostly in Surrey and Delta, usually raising money for charity in the process. continued, PAGE 31

Canada Day 2011

Artist Bernard Major holds one of his paintings inspired by a recent trip to Egypt. Garrett JAMES/Langley Times

A story in every painting from PAGE 29

What theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d really like to see is a dedicated space, similar to the Firehall in Delta or a community cultural centre, where artists who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have regular access to gallery space can display their work for more than a day or two at a time. For now, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking opportunities as they present themselves. On Saturday, Majorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work will be featured in a one-day exhibit at Frames West Gallery in Murrayville. Eighteen months ago, Major and his wife traveled to Egypt, where they cruised along the Nile and visited Cairo, Alexandria and the Valley of Kings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, I came back with hundreds of images,â&#x20AC;? he said.

When it came to deciding which pictures to commit to canvas, Major chose the ones which, for him, best captured the moment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whether it was a bedouin riding a camel through the desert or fishermen on the Nile, whacking the surface of the water to frighten fish into their nets, as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done for centuries. One scene that particularly intrigued Major was of a group of women in a mosque. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What caught me was how incredible their veils were,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were made of Egyptian silk in all these pastel colours. I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not something you would normally see anywhere else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen the Sphinx and the pyramids,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything I paint, I try to make sure thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story that goes with it.â&#x20AC;?

A mystical blue umbrella is torn, and a young girl suddenly vanishes through the hole. Meanwhile, precious seconds are disappearing from the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atomic clock, with unpredictable results â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something as inconvenient as a dropped casserole, and others, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as tragic as a plane crash. So begins Mike Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second novel, The Violet Flash. Set once again in the town of Five Corners and with Porterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store featured heavily, The Violet Flash follows most of the same characters Mason developed in his debut novel The Blue Umbrella, published in 2009. But it does introduce a brand new villain. This one is stealing time, and should an entire minute be taken the results will be catastrophic, with nothing less than the end of the world at stake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Might as well go for broke,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said the Langley author, with a laugh. While Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first story followed the adventures of 10-year-old Zac Sparks, who is sent to live with his crotchety old aunties after his mother is struck and killed by a bolt of lightening, the second in the series takes up the story of Zacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbour, Ches Cholmondeley (pronounced Chum-ly), whose sister Chelsea has mysteriously disappeared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the first book, Chester was sort of curmudgeonly, so I found it interesting to delve into his character more, explained Mason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted a name for the character thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of preposterous because of the way he is. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a heady intellectual, a bit full of himself.â&#x20AC;?

Take, for instance, Chesterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trademark gesture of pushing his glasses up the bridge of his nose,â&#x20AC;&#x153;which he does 100 times a day.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;With one characteristic physical gesture, you can say so much about a character,â&#x20AC;? Mason said. In addition to shifting his focus from Zac to Chester, Mason lightened the tone somewhat in his second novel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a bit dark.That was the only criticism I got of the first book. For some nine and 10 year olds, it was a bit too much, but for others, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine,â&#x20AC;? he said. When he was that age, Mason was a big Jules Verne fan, and devoured many of the classics, from Around the World in 80 Days to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Treasure Island, Dr. Dolittle and the Sherlock Holmes novels were also high on his reading list. For him, fantasy novels arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about escape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see it as a way to write about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more real. The world we see is only the surface of things,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe, on a deeper level, other worlds do exist and amazing things do happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reality we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see, and kids are very much in touch with that. They like to make up games about the struggle between good and evil.â&#x20AC;? Something The Violet Flash includes that Mason has not seen in other books are outtakes, similar to those that often accompany the end credits of a movie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you write a novel, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot that ends up on the cutting room floor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; some of it, I was really attached to,â&#x20AC;? he said. Some of these literary outtakes show different directions the story might have taken, while others flesh out characters and add more layers to the story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had this material that I really liked, but I left it out to maintain the narrative tension,â&#x20AC;? he explained. Mason, who has also written a number of non-

writing club for feedback, but the results weren’t exactly what he’d anticipated. “I was really proud of it, and they tore it apart,” he said. Mason was crushed. He put the book away for a year to gain some perspective, and turned his attention back to editing The Blue Umbrella. The third volume, which will follow the rainbow title theme and shift its focus to another of the characters, exists only in notes at the moment and won’t be around for at least a couple of years, he said. “I have a pile of Christmas stories I’ve been meaning to put together and I’m taking a break. “Writing novels is much more consuming than the other type of writing I used to do,” Mason said. “I guess as I get older, I find it daunting how much solitude is required for writing a novel.” Unlike JK Rowling who had the entire Harry Potter series mapped out when she began, Mason said, for him it is a much more informal process. “I seem to have to follow my nose and take it as it comes.” Next, Mason’s nose will once again lead him to the real Porter’s Store, a coffee shop at Murrayville’s historic Five Corners, where his book will be officially launched on Friday, June 17. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the event will include a reading and author talk Tickets are $6, a price that includes a specialty beverage and a shot at the evening’s door prizes, including three autographed copies of The Violet Flash. “We’re also giving away a blue umbrella, just like this,” Mason said, holding up the sky-blue object, dotted with fluffy white clouds and supported by a clear plastic handle, which was custom made for him by the third generation umbrella maker in Vancouver. But don’t expect it to whisk you off to a fantasy world. “This,” he said,“is the magic one, of course.”

fiction books on the subjects of marriage, family and Christian faith, said he’s learned a lot about the fiction writing process since publishing his first novel. At almost 100 fewer pages, “this is a more tightly constructed story,” he said. And while the first book practically wrote itself, the second proved a bit more of a struggle for the author. “It’s been written and rewritten within an inch of its life,” Mason said. He took his third draft of The Violet Flash to his

Farm fresh season returns W

elcome back, my farmer friends. It has been a long wet winter and I have missed you. I am so pleased to see the Langley Community Farmers Market get underway for the 2011 season. Every Wednesday until early October from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Langley Kwantlen campus, farmers, artisans and food producers from all over this region will provide us with the opportunity to buy peak-of-the-season, farm fresh food and goodies. It sends a shiver up my back just thinking about what’s to come. When the season opened, there was an abundance of peppers, cucumbers, salad greens, hothouse tomatoes, pork, chicken and baked goods. I ate an entire pint of black cherry tomatoes while I shopped, and bought what was possibly the very best maple oat scone I have ever eaten from Lori at the Ivy Oven. However, the highlight for me last week had to be the farm fresh eggs and the kale.They turned into a phenomenal breakfast. I am pretty sure that farm fresh, free range eggs are like the little black dress of the
