Froese said he was approached several months ago about running

The man charged with killing 24-year-old Aldergrove resident Kyle Barber says he did have a knife when he assaulted Barber on March 28, 2009, but insists he did not intend to use it. The B.C. Supreme Court trial of 24-year-old Albert Jacob Jackman heard him testify Tuesday that he was holding a knife in one hand when he punched Barber repeatedly in the face for trying to shoot him, but denies he meant to wound Barber. “I never stabbed him,” Jackman said. “Not even once?” Crown prosecutor Christopher McPherson asked. “I could have,” conceded Jackman, a massively-built man with a tattoo just below his right ear and a neatlytrimmed beard who wore a grey suit with no tie during his appearance before a B.C. Supreme Court judge in New Westminster. Jackman also disputed testimony by Barber’s girlfriend that he and co-accused Gregory Michael Barrett, 32, forced their way into Barber’s home in the 24400 block of Fraser Highway the night Barber was fatally stabbed. “We just wanted to talk to them” said Jackman.

Froese seeks to end animosity Langley turkey farmer says he is making a bid for Township mayor’s seat to help put an end to two and a half years of conflict FRANK BUCHOLTZ Times Reporter

Jack Froese cites two and a half years of animosity between the mayor and council as a major reason he is seeking to become the next mayor of Langley Townshjp. Froese, a longtime North Ott-

ter area farmer, is a political newcomer. He has a wealth of experience in many facets of life, including agriculture, business, law enforcement and community involvement. While he and his wife Debbie built JD Turkey Farms and Bistro into a thriving business, Froese

also served 19 years as a police officer. His leadership skills have been evident in his company, the poultry industry, the business community, the Aldergrove Soccer Association and the 2010 BC Summer Games, where he volunteered as director of security. Froese is currently putting his platform together, in consultation with Langley citizens, and will release it before next fall’s municipal election. His only previous political experience was in helping his wife’s

All-candidates meeting tonight

Candidates meet with voters DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

The lure of free coffee and cookies produced a small but talkative turnout for an informal meet and greet with local candidates at the City of Langley public library on Monday morning (April 18). Four of the five federal hopefuls showed up with campaign buttons, brochures, assistants, campaign photographers and one videographer to chat with anyone who cared to drop by between 10 a.m. and noon. It was the first all-candidates event ever hosted by the library, which chose Monday because it is a particularly busy day when the most people visit. There was a small but steady trickle of people during the morning, no more than a dozen at any given time. Most of them appeared already committed to supDan FERGUSON/Langley Times porting a candidate or party Green Party candidate Carey Poitras brought her 18-month-old son Khale along to the but glad for the chance of a close-up look at them and Langley City Library’s “meet and greet” with candidates for Langley MP on Monday morning.

The meeting is sponsored by Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce, Fraser Valley Real Estate Board and Kwantlen Polytechnic University. It take place from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the university’s auditorium, 20901 Langley Bypass. Candidates will make introductory remarks and take questions from the audience. All are welcome to attend.

Advance poll hours clarified A story in last Wednesday’s Times about voting hours contained some incorrect information about the advance polls. Advance polls will be open on Friday, Saturday and Monday at four locations in Langley — Brookswood Secondary, Walnut Grove Secondary, Langley Secondary and Parkside Centennial Elementary. The hours that the advance polls will be open on those days (April 22, 23 and 25) are 12 to 8 p.m., not 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. as initially reported. The general election will be held on Monday, May 2, with voting from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Anyone wishing to contact the local returning office about voting issues can call 604-539-2980.

Township still hearing about closure of 0 Ave./200 St. intersection NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

More and more South Langley residents want to know what compelled the current council to eliminate the intersection of 200 Street and 0 Avenue. This occurred last month after 48 residents of the High Point equestrian-themed housing estate signed a petition urging council not to open up 0 Avenue and 200 Street. Township council agreed. This means that 0 Avenue traffic cannot access 200 Street, and southbound 200 Street

traffic will get no further than High Point. In June, 2004, a report to council on the High Point subdivision and development bylaw stated that 200 Street would be extended to 0 Avenue as a collector road. Until construction began, 200 Street ended just south of 8 Avenue. Once it started 200 Street/0 Avenue was kept blocked to prevent construction vehicles entering the building site from 0 Avenue. Several residents have told council that 200 Street should go all the way to 0 Avenue. Eleanor Wrigley was the latest. On April

11, she told council that the lack of access to 0 Avenue is funneling too much traffic along 8 Avenue. Furthermore, she added, once on 200 Street, traffic wanting to reach 0 Avenue is forced to go as far as 216 Street, or 192 Street in Surrey. There have been several collisions at 200 Street and 8 Avenue, an intersection which is controlled by four-way stop signs. One of those crashes involved Wrigley’s daughter; the car in which she was travelling was T-boned and a write-off. Wrigley said that the issue should have been brought to a public meeting so that all

those residents impacted could have a say. Councillor Kim Richter asked Wrigley whether a roundabout at 200 Street and 8 Avenue would be safer than a four-way stop. There would be more confusion, Wrigley said. The solution is to spread the traffic around, she said, adding that turning 200 Street into a dead-end road is “shortsighted.” Councillor Bob Long said that he voted to close the road, based on what he knew at the time. But with more people speaking up, it’s time to look at the bigger picture. Council agreed to air the issue during a public hearing meeting. No date has been set.

Blame for discord placed on mayor’s shoulders If elected, Froese vows to work in co-operation with council from PAGE 1

for council, and at the time felt that his business needed most of his time. Since that time, he has been giving the matter more thought, and he feels the staff at his business, which includes his son and daughter, are ready to take on more of the challenges.This got him thinking that he should run for mayor. “The pieces of the puzzle are falling into place. This has sped up my plans (to be less directly involved) in the business.” Froese said he will not be running as part of a slate, but as an independent candidate. However, he added that he feels he has good support from the eight current councillors. He has talked to each of them Jack Froese township mayoral candidate since making his decision. He decided to run without consulting any of them. He feels that Mayor Rick Green has not been a good leader,and that has led to many council battles over the past two and one-half years. “When something is wrong, you have to look at the leader,” he said. “I don’t believe there are eight people who don’t know what they’re doing. When all eight say ‘we’ve had enough,’ something needs to change. The mayor has failed to bring council together. “It’s broken down. The way (council) is run creates an us-versus-them mentality, and it allows for bullying. “I will work with council and will support the end result of council’s vote.” Froese said council cannot go backwards and revisit decisions like adding full-time firefighters, which have increased taxes. The Froeses have farmed in Langley since 1979. Jack Froese grew up in the Mount Lehman area of Abbotsford and farmed with his father before he and his wife went on their own, initially as egg producers. The Froeses switched from produc-

Jack Froese, a North Otter turkey farmer, has announced he will run for mayor of Langley Township in November. ing eggs to growing turkeys in 1987, and in 1992, began branding and marketing turkeys as JD Farms Specialty Turkey. They built a small retail on-farm market and sold turkeys at the farm gate and to independent meat markets throughout B.C. Today JD Farms Specialty Turkey employs 20 people. He also was a Vancouver police officer for 19 years. In the community, he has been involved with Aldergrove Soccer Association, Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club. Councillor Charlie Fox said Tuesday he welcomes Froese’s entry into the race, but is still considering whether he should run for mayor this fall. Fox said he wants to see more details of Froese’s political platform before he makes his decision.

Victim pulled gun, accused claims Obsessions A passion for Wine & Food

from PAGE 1

Jackman is charged with first-degree murder in Barber’s death while Barrett, a broad-shouldered clean-shaven man who wears glasses, is charged with manslaughter. Jackman is in jail. Barrett is free on bail. According to Jackman, he and Barrett went to see Barber because they believed the occupants of the Fraser Highway house were involved in a marijuana grow rip at a Barrett-run operation. Barber invited them in, Jackman said, and it was Barber who suddenly got physical. “Things got out of hand.� When prosecutor McPherson suggested the two men had been asked to leave by Barber’s girlfriend, Jackman disagreed. “Not that I remember,� he said. Jackman said they were all talking in the living room when Barber ran to a bedroom and got a gun. Jackman was able to take it away from Barber, he said. “I was disappointed a man would pull a gun on me,� Jackman told the court when he was asked his reaction. “I took the situation very seriously. I was upset.� “I suggest you were angry,� McPherson said. Jackman thought about it for a moment. “Yes.� He denied the girlfriend’s claim that Jackman showed Barber a tattoo on his wrist to make it clear they were dealing with members of the Red Scorpions gang. At the time of his arrest, Jackman was described as an associate of the Red Scorpions and the Bacon brothers by the Integrated Gang Task Force. Jackman said he took Barber down stairs into the basement and punched him in the face several times after the gun incident, but he denies using scissors. After that Jackman said he went upstairs to wash the blood off his knuckles, returned to the basement and brought Barber back upstairs. “He was mentioning he had money

While the sun and the rain ďŹ ght for position this week be sure to watch the weather channel for optimum shopping days, some will deďŹ nitely be better than others. As spring takes its precious time arriving, it has not prevented all of the newly released aromatics, coolers and ciders from blooming. Wild Goose Vineyard, Lake Breeze Winery, Blasted Church, Township 7, Kettle Valley and Lotus Land to name a few have once again stepped up to the plate with some of the best Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and GewĂźrztraminers available. Keeping in mind that Easter has arrived, as well as the years ďŹ rst long weekend, complete with sugar induced children, hockey, and golf games (weather permitting) the timing could not have been better. I thought it best to put together some suggestions for a perfect marriage of avors and to remind all of you that pairing wine with food is NOT rocket science and that your taste buds are as individual as you are. I know that most of you will be gathering ideas for the ďŹ rst feast of the year, as well as spending endless hours deciding between ham, turkey, leg of lamb and many other family favorites. However, if your open to ideas and suggestions then let’s have some fun and remember balance is key and creativity is where it’s at! Normally I would head right into some diatribe about the art of wine pairing especially for such an important dinner. The fact that you will be cooking and slurping your way until next Tuesday helps as well. However lucky you, Easter is one of those times that practically anything goes. There are just a few suggestions I am adding to keep things simple and a full glass in your hand. One rule of thumb is if you’re going to squeeze lemon or lime on your food then pair with a wine that contains a avor proďŹ le of citrus, perhaps Pinot Gris, Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Wines with lots of tannin make sweet food taste less sweet, for instance a rich full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon is amazing with the chocolate you’re about to steal from the kids. You can always use the primary avor of a wine to add to your dish and create a layer that was not present. For instance a wine that displays lots of fruit is really great paired with a turkey dinner. Think of the wine as a condiment to the meal. Cheese typically goes well with all wine. All you need to do is consider texture when choosing the wine. Red wine pairs much better with hard cheese and White with softer varieties. Here is a list of Turkey favorites for you to keep in mind for the big day‌ Lake Breeze Pinot Blanc

My child and I suffer from seasonal allergies. Anti-histamines make me feel drowsy and I would prefer to use a more natural remedy for my child. Is this possible? Yes! For all those who suffer from seasonal allergies there are natural alternatives to treatment. For many, this time of year can be unbearable as allergens spring up all around us. Symptoms of runny nose, sniffling, sneezing, low energy, itchy eyes, and headaches run rampant but don’t panic, there is hope! I recommend patients start a homeopathic prevention program each year before the start of the allergy season. Many patients report a relief from symptoms after the first round of treatment and find they no longer suffer from allergies after 2-3 consecutive years of using this program. The homeopathics used in this allergy prevention program are easy BSc, ND to take, free from side effects, and safe for the whole family.

Transplant brought Life completely changes following liver transplant GARY AHUJA Times Reporter

Jillian St. James spent her teenage years barely able to walk and confined to her bed. St. James had a typical childhood, but that all changed when she was 10 or 11. It began with leg pain, which her family thought was just growing pains. But it was so excruciating, some days, her mom would have to carry her up and down the stairs. Finally, she was diagnosed with auto-immune hepatitis, Crohn’s disease and arthritis. “It was like a roller coaster,” St. James described.“Some days I would be OK, but that meant having a little bit of energy. “The worst days I was in bed all day long.” St. James tried to slog her way through the pain, mustering up whatever strength she could to go up and down the stairs at school at Brookswood Secondary, not wanting to let her classmates see her pain. “I would pretend (everything) was normal, but it hurt so bad,” she said.“I kept it a secret from everyone because I just wanted to

fit in, even though people knew something was off.” Besides her family, only her closest friends knew just how bad the pain was. It got so bad that St. James ended up dropping out of school in Grade 11. Finally, last year she was admitted to Vancouver General Hospital. “I was bright yellow, like a Simpsons’ (character),” St. James said with a laugh. While in hospital, her condition began deteriorating and doctors determined St. James needed a

On June 9, doctors removed about 35 per cent of Aaron’s liver — they usually take about half, but because of the size difference between the siblings, they took less — and did a successful transplant. Aaron was released from hospital within a week, while his sister was there for another three months. She did have a few infections, but that is fairly normal for a transplant recipient. Her life has done a 180 since then. “Once I was out, I was doing everything that I could,” she said with a smile.“I can keep a job, I started school finally. “I can start life now. I am a little behind, but I will get there.” St. James is getting her GED at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. And given a new lease on life, St. James wants to give back.

end to ‘roller coaster’ donor registration and awareness. A recent survey shows 85 per cent of people polled said they want to be organ donors, but only 16 per cent follow through and sign up. “That is a real gap and we want to improve that,” he said. According to the B.C.Transplant Agency,

781,460 people are on the organ donor registry, but that represents just 17 per cent of the provincial population. And there are 390 people currently on the wait list for an organ transplant. In the Township and the City combined, since Puchmayr did a presentation two years

ago, the number of people who have signed up to be donors has increased by 2,000, from 17,575 registered donors in 2009 to 19,680. He also said there are nine people living in the Langleys who are donor recipients. Having recipients like St. James is helpful in increasing awareness.

“When she came (with me) and did her presentation, you could see all the councillors and staff all choked up,” Puchmayr said. “I was all choked up. It really is a great message. “This is just a way to thank everyone who is a donor,” St. James said. “They are heroes in my mind,” Puchmayr added.

THEY SAY

Rail issues ignored

Council is to make decisions

O

ne issue that has barely been mentioned during the current federal election campaign is one that will have a profound effect on the future of Langley — in particular the central business area of Willowbrook and Langley City. The issue is the response to rail traffic to and from the Deltaport facility. Current plans call for two overpasses to be built on the outskirts of the central business area — along the 196 Street corridor, and somewhere near Mufford Crescent. These are being financed through the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor program, a federal initiative. Significant additional funds in it come from TransLink, the province, the port, railways and local governments. There are no plans to deal with the congestion on the three busiest streets within the central business area — Highway 10 (Langley Bypass), Fraser Highway and 200 Street. The only undertaking to deal with an expected volume of 38 trains a day, many of them two miles long, will be a series of advance warning indicators on various local roads, which will tell drivers that a train is coming and suggest they use alternate routes. If overpasses are ever to be built on any of the three busy roads, it will require a commitment from Ottawa to help fund them. Costs for an overpass on any of those streets would be in the range of $150 million, as there would almost certainly be a need for land acquisition in addition to the actual construction costs. The Roberts Bank Rail Corridor program is set to expire within a couple of years. Thus far, no federal candidate has publicly suggested that a follow-up program is needed. Nor has any candidate suggested that funds for the stalled Mufford Crescent overpass (rejected by the Agricultural Land Commission) should be redirected to an overpass on Langley Bypass, where the need is greatest and there is some vacant land adjacent to the rail line. If Langley residents are content to wait for up to 10 minutes at a time to cross the tracks (as happened on Monday night at 9 p.m. as a slowmoving container train went through), then this issue doesn’t need to be raised. But if Langley is to continue to have a future where people can move freely, without waiting for trains to pass by, this issue needs to be addressed promptly. And the only way something will happen is if the federal government buys in.

It will be very hard to get many of these on many occasions at council meetings, and in people to vote, given that they usually don’t some other community endeavours. bother to, and they will have been through two Froese referred to this in his announcement, or three votes already this year.

debate in Qualicum Beach over water has given rise to that famous lament of the third year in municipal politicians’ mandates: Put off major decisions until after the election. That would be a serious dereliction of duty, should any politician take that approach. The electorate demands decisions — that is why we vote for people. The general public does not want the burden of running their own system of government (this can be backed up in voter turnout rates, for there is no excuse not to vote), so we elect people to do it for us. They are tasked with the job, at the local level, for three years. Waffling over decisions in the final year of the term means close to two years have been wasted. Year one is getting newcomers to city hall up to speed and getting started on a new mandate. Year two is the heavy workload period. Year three is campaigning. Makes a good argument to extend the municipal level terms of office to four years. With that task put to them, elected officials should be willing to make tough decisions right up until election day. The tendency, however, is for people to stop working for the people, and start working for themselves. It’s hard to blame them, for that is the system we have created. Yet people tend to forget that decisions made in the political theatre are fluid. The plans made by one group can easily be continued or not by the next one. If a new municipal council is willing, and everyone knows the consequences, change can be made. This renders moot the argument of saddling future decision-makers with plans they never approved. Anyone promoting this tactic is just waiting for the election attention to disappear. —Parksville Qualicum Beach News (Black Press) The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Put toll booths at border crossings Editor: In response to the letter of April 13, “Tolling should not be expanded,” I understand what Ernie Mason is saying. However, even a small increase in taxes to all British Columbians is not a fair way to pay for infrastructure. To expect a resident of B.C. to pay for a bridge or highway they may never use does not seem fair. As British Columbians, we need to realize that infrastructure in urban areas must forever be expanding to meet growth. The same does not apply to rural areas of the province. We need to look at the current system that is in place for the Golden Ears Bridge, and seems to be the direction being considered for the new Port Mann Bridge, as well as some other locations that have been mentioned. For only the vehicles of B.C. to be billed for these tolls seem extremely unfair. All users should pay. It hardly seems fair to B.C. truckers that they pay a toll to use infrastructure in the Lower Mainland, but all out-of-province trucks run for free. I would be curious if a survey was done for just one week, to take a tally of all vehicles that use our infrastructure that are from south of the border or from provinces east of B.C. I think

TransLink should look at constructing seven toll booths in the following locations: ❒ Highway 99 at the Peace Arch border crossing; ❒ 176 Street truck crossing; ❒ 264 Street Aldergrove border crossing; ❒ Highway 11 Huntingdon crossing; ❒ Highway 1 just west of Hope, to catch all traffic from Highways 1, 3 and 5, coming into the Lower Mainland; ❒ Highway 7 just west of Highway 1, to catch all traffic heading via Highway 7 into the Lower Mainland; and ❒ All out-of-province vehicles arriving via ferries from U.S. to Victoria. All vehicles without B.C. plates would be required to report to a toll booth and buy a pass that would be valid for a set period (eg. one week). It would be just like a coloured sticky note, to be displayed in the front windshield. Each week would be a different colour and have a code that is valid for a week or part thereof. Passes could run from Friday until Thursday. An out-of-province vehicle, depending on weight and axles, would pay a set rate for use of all infrastructures for the said week. For a

vehicle remaining in the Lower Mainland for more than a week, additional passes could be purchased weekly as needed from any lottery retailer in the Lower Mainland. A system like this would not only create a few jobs in the outlying area toll booths, it would probably bring in additional revenues that are much needed to create future infrastructure. It would also create a feeling of fairness to all involved. People in B.C. who do not use the tolled infrastructure won’t be paying for it, and vehicles from out-of-province would be contributing to maintain and improve the infrastructure they are using. Mason also made reference regarding the BC Liberal party increasing their popularity many fold, and the NDP would improving their standings by adopting his suggested options. These two parties being mentioned, or any new and upcoming political parties, would probably get more support from the voters if they would take a stand and show the people that they are still in control, and not TransLink. R. Collick, Langley

Thanks to everyone at Langley Hospital Editor: We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to those of you at Langley Memorial Hospital who assisted our family, during our son’s recent stay for a burst appendix. Never have we had to experience firsthand what and who are all involved in an emergency situation. To everyone from admitting, emergency pediatrics and their doctors and nurses,

the porters, the X-ray technicians, our wonderful surgeon, Dr. Shete, and his equally wonderful support staff of nurses, anaesthesiologists and pain doctors, our pediatric doctor, and housekeeping — we can’t thank you enough for taking such good care of our son, and answering our hundreds of questions. You gave us peace of mind, through your friendliness and humour. This experience has

opened our eyes to this profession and how committed you all are and how lucky we all are to have such a great hospital in our community. Our son is well on his road to recovery — there’s no slowing down a 10-year-old and his passion for hockey. Thank you again. The Zazula family, Langley

20 Langley schools part of Student Vote program Editor: After a whirlwind two-week campaign, I am so pleased to announce 20 schools from the Langley School District have registered to be a part of the Student Vote program. I am so proud of all the schools who have jumped on board and I know they are going to become advocates for this program, as I have. We have more than doubled our school numbers from the last provincial election, when Lan-

gley saw nine schools participating. That’s double the number of kids becoming actively engaged in the democratic process and double the number of kids who will take their newfound knowledge and passion home to their friends and family.This is something to be proud of. Margaret Mead said so eloquently: “Never doubt, that a small group of thoughtful citizens could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only

thing that ever has.” I hope in the upcoming days before the federal election, there are many thoughtful and engaged conversations occurring around each and every Langley dinner table. I hope we are reminded what a privilege it is to have the right to vote, and that we exercise it. Michelle Sparrow, Langley

Conservatives can’t take all economic credit Editor: I beg to disagree with Eric Bysouth’s view of Canada’s economic history (The Times, April 15). Canada’s economic performance over the last few years has little to do with superior fiscal management by the Conservatives. Has he forgotten that Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said that there was no recession in November of 2008, and that they would never The

run a deficit? It was only because of pressure from the opposition that a stimulus package was introduced. And does he think the Conservatives invented the Canadian banking system? Our system has evolved over a long period of time — which was dominated by Liberal governments. The Canadian dollar is high because of massive oil exports from the oil sands, not due to

any great feat of Stephen Harper and company. The Conservatives seem to be more interested in cutting taxes for large corporations and giving tax breaks to the wealthy than helping seniors and students. A Harper majority would be a disaster for Canada, which I hope will never come to pass. David Truman, Langley

SEEK THEM OUT Editor: The letter from Debbie Atkinson (The Times, April 8) makes me think the writer needs to get “plugged in” politically. The fact that she knows that Mark Warawa has a family is because he has been an MP for this consituency for many years. She should make up her mind by looking closely at the viewpoints of all parties running in the riding. and then make up her mind. It would take a full editorial page to explain that. Instead, I suggest that she read, watch and get involved. Frankly, I am shocked that she hasn’t found all of the information she needs on the Internet regarding what each party will do for her. Go to Warawa’s office and speak to him face to face and ask him what he will do for you. Go to Piotr Majkowski’s office and ask him the same. The Liberal and Green candidates would also welcome your questions and meet you with an outstretched handshake. A word of warning — they may have fresh doughnuts, but the coffee is always lousy in campaign offices. You might want to bring your own. Clayton Randle, Langley Editor’s note — The Times will be publishing more detailed information about each federal candidate in next week’s editions.

DOG BANS Editor: Laura Pickles (The Times, April 15) should not be concerned about municipal dog leash laws.There are several federal government jurisdictions, such as Fort Langley historic site, where dogs are tolerated. We are banned on our own municipal lands for the protection of the only horses in the world which are not accustomed to seeing dogs. Paul St. Pierre, Fort Langley

try in two years, or made Canada’s currency soar past the U.S. dollar. Canada’s dollar is now seen as a stable petro-currency in an unstable world, and it’s international lumber markets that have led to doubledigit unemployment in many B.C. towns. Natural gas, and foreign technology and investment in it, have been a key part of B.C.’s recovery. And in general we’re starting to enjoy the effects of a commodity boom. Then came the NDP leadership vote on Sunday. Here is a party that already has tilted itself toward the urban areas with a one-member-one vote system. And it just rejected Mike Farnworth, its most popular candidate and the one with the best effort to emphasize rural and resource development. Newly anointed NDP leader Adrian Dix is going to raise taxes on banks and those evil corporations, and use the money to subsidize post-secondary education for anyone who wants it. Meanwhile the reality for post-secondary students is that business programs are tough to get into, because students are lining up to pay the supposedly onerous tuition fees. Dix’s rhetoric about state-imposed wealth redistribution seems not so much alarming as quaint. It’s his federal counterpart Jack Layton who blithely promises to double a federal pension program, just as Canada’s population approaches the tipping point in 2015, where there will be more seniors than children for the first time in our history. Where Dix is alarming is when he talks about offering a positive alternative to the B.C. Liberals on the economy, the environment and education. His convention win was presided over by a senior official of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. The NDP’s environment policy is in disarray. And on the economy, he is diametrically opposed to the global consensus. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca.

GEORGE ANTONE REMEMBERED

Garrett JAMES/Langley Times

A large contingent from the Kwantlen First Nation attended Sunday’s Arbour Day events at the Derek Doubleday Arboretum, to honour Kwantlen elder George Antone. The longtime resident of the Kwantlen lands on McMillan Island was found dead on his home on March 7, the apparent victim of a homicide which remains under investigation. The Township honoured his service to his people and the community with a tree planted in his memory. Several other notable Langley residents who passed away in the past year were also honoured with tree plantings.

Seniors sought for awards The Langley Seniors Recreation and Resource Centre is seeking nominees for the “Seniors of the Year” awards. Those nominated should have contributed volunteer service in Langley City or Township, be 65 or older, and have resided in the City or Township for at least five years.

The impact of the collision forced the ambulance through the intersection where it struck three eastbound vehicles, which were stopped at the red light. Two people were taken to Royal Columbian Hospital with non-life threatening injuries and one was treated and released within several hours, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Patrick Davies. The two ambulance attendants were taken to Langley Memorial Hospital for observation. Davies said the crash is still under investigation, and it is unclear whether the driver of the Vibe, who entered the intersection on a green light, was aware of the approaching emergency vehicle.

because we challenged them to come up with solutions,” Fox said. He stressed the importance of maintaining the Township’s infrastructure. Quoting the warning of former operations manager Rene Payer, Fox said:“Do not lose sight of the value of the infrastructure that you do not see, because you will never get it back.” Council gave first three readings to the bylaw, which raises property taxes by 3.95 per cent. What this means is that for a property assessed at $480,000, the budget will tack an extra $20 in general taxes, $12 in parks levy, $18 in transportation levy and $5 in storm water levy, over last year’s levels. User fee increases, applicable only to those residences which have these municipal services, will see the cost of water, sewer and garbage collection rise by $95. As with all levels of government, wages and benefits are the big cost driver in this year’s budget. They are up by $2.5 million. More police protection boosts the budget by $1.4 million, and converting another firehall to a 24-hour operation adds another $705,000 to the fire protection budget. Final reading of the financial bylaws takes place on May 9.

Only the boxes that computers and a flat screen television came in remain in the classroom used by special needs students at Langley Secondary School. Someone smashed in a window and used cutters to chop the theft prevention cables attached to the four iMacs and the Toshiba flat screen TV, escaping before police, alerted by the theft alarm, arrived. The break-in happened some time Friday night (April 15).

Thyroid tablets are mostly taken in the morning. However, there is some evidence that the effects on the hormone levels are better when the daily dose is taken at night. Since the drug is better absorbed on an empty stomach, taking it at night would be good since it’s well after the last meal of the day. “It must be something I ate...”.

There are many opportunities to become part of a clinical study on a new drug. These trials are usually advertised and ask for people with certain symptoms or diseases. One advantage is that you may get a new cutting-edge treatment that may work wonders. But because it is a true trial, groups are divided into those who get the drug and those on placebo. If your current therapy is working for you, give the clinical trial a pass.

Defence on the offence Why not fight? Court delays a disincentive to pay traffic fines or plead guilty to more serious crimes JEFF NAGEL Black Press

Only a sucker would pay their speeding ticket without a fight now. That’s the street wisdom circulating on web discussion forums where motorcycle and car enthusiasts trade tips on how to beat their traffic violation tickets in B.C.’s congested courts. They point to the case of Michael Podger. The Kelowna heavy equipment salesman was ticketed by police in November 2007 for making an illegal lane change without signalling. He disputed the ticket, but delays in the court system dragged the case until January of 2009, when Podger — representing himself — successfully persuaded a judge to toss out his ticket on the grounds that his right to justice within a reasonable time had been violated. Since then others — often repeat speeders — have been boning up on constitutional law to challenge their own tickets. If it takes longer than 10 months for their ticket dispute to be heard, they can make a strong case for a judicial stay of proceedings, citing Podger’s case and other rulings as precedent. It’s not necessarily a slam dunk. Challengers have to prove they were ready to proceed on each appearance date — in other words it was the system, not their own foot-dragging, to blame for the delay. They also have to show they suffered prejudice from the delay. The judge in Podger’s case agreed he experienced stress and was deprived of three days of pay when he took time off work to prepare his case and attend court. Podger was reluctant to be interviewed by Black Press, but said he’s used the delay argument several times to persuade authorities to cancel his traffic tickets. He’s also coached more than a dozen other motorists on how to use the case law. “Most of the time it gets stayed,” Podger said. “I’m the only one that’s had to go fight it that I know of.” Surrey lawyer Daryl Brown, who gave him some advice, said Podger is far from the only driver beating tickets on the basis of unacceptable delays. “More people are becoming aware of the ability to make these arguments,” he said. “You’ve got guys who aren’t first-timers,” Brown added. “They’ve got a few tickets.

and serious civil or family law cases. ICBC officials note more than 60 per cent of tickets disputed are upheld in court, although that’s down from 68 per cent found guilty five years ago. And when ticket challengers win, B.C. municipalities lose out. Cities get $63 million a year in traffic fine revenues shared by the province to help with policing costs. Surrey alone receives $5.9 million annually. ••• It’s not just traffic ticket dodgers who might otherwise take their lumps and pay up who are emboldened by delays in the system. Accused criminals and the defence lawyers who represent them increasingly see a good chance to quash cases based on delay, particularly when they see their trial date set 16-plus months away and stacked with multiple other trials on the same day. There’s less incentive to plead guilty — even when the case against the accused looks air-tight — or accept an early plea bargain offer from Crown unless it’s attractive.

What happened to justice for all? Access to legal aid lacking for those who are in need SHEILA REYNOLDS Black Press

A middle-aged woman finds herself in the midst of a bitter fight for spousal support she never anticipated. She can’t afford a lawyer, and turns to legal aid for assistance. A victim of abuse, her situation is complex, but not as difficult as the legal maze that has now consumed her life. She’s found that people she thought she could count on to help simply can’t, because of a lack of funding and resources. “It’s systemic discrimination” against those unable to fund their own justice, she says, adding most in her situation simply abandon the process because it’s so damaging. Between 2002 and 2005, government funding to Legal Services Society of B.C. (LSS) — the provider of legal aid — was cut by 40 per cent and 85 of the legal aid offices in B.C. were closed. Between April 1, 2009 and March 26, 2010, the society saw funding cuts to family law,

including dispute resolution and category one criminal law — offences such as breach of probation or failure to appear. Immigration and refugee law services were also cut. Some services have since been restored. Five LSS regional offices, including the one in Surrey, were closed last spring but were replaced with local agents — private lawyers on contract with the society. And LAWLine, the LSS’s telephone legal advice service, was replaced with an expanded, province-wide call centre. But many feel access to legal aid remains insufficient. Statistics show that in Surrey alone, just over half of the applications for legal representation for family matters were approved in the past year, while about 60 per cent of immigration applications got the go-ahead. Legal aid for criminal and child protection issues fared better, but applications were still denied for nearly a quarter of the cases. Veteran lawyer Leonard Doust says legal aid should be treated as an essential service. Doust, leading the Public Commission on Legal Aid — an independent group representing six legal bodies — headed a recent inquiry into legal aid in B.C.

Black Press photo

Lawyer Leonard Doust believes legal aid should be treated as an essential service in B.C. His resulting report, Foundations for Change, released in early March, summarizes that “the overwhelming majority of submissions spoke to the general failure of our legal aid system, the negative repercussions for needy individuals and families, and the consequent adverse impact on our communities and justice system.” The report suggests federal and

provincial funding cuts have left the system unable to meet basic needs and that it’s the working poor and marginalized people who suffer most. “It is an absolutely essential social service,” Doust said. “Without it, people can be, and indeed they are ... deprived of the other essential services in our province, particularly social

welfare. “It’s like the four-legged chair missing one leg: it falls.” In addition to making legal aid an essential service, Doust laid out eight other recommendations, which included re-establishing regional aid offices, making more people eligible and giving legal aid workers better pay and support. The legal aid system in B.C. has changed dramatically since its introduction in 1979. While the direction at that time was that legal aid representation had to be provided to those who couldn’t afford it for some areas of law, the rules were changed in 2001 and legal aid is no longer mandatory. ••• For the most part, the Legal Services Society agrees with Doust’s findings, endorsing the notion that legal aid should be recognized as an essential public service and that significantly more funding is needed. But the chair of the society also believes a fundamental shift is necessary in the way legal aid — and those using — is viewed. Access to justice is often examined from the perspective of judges and lawyers, says Mayland McKimm, but when seen from the perspective of those caught up in continued, PAGE 19

Delay hearings create catch-22 for court system from PAGE 16

delays mean defence lawyers are more motivated to proceed to trial because of the potential for charges to get thrown out over delay and, if the case does go to trial, it becomes harder to prove older allegations as witnesses become harder to round up or their memories fade. “The best defence here is to set the thing for trial,” said Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association. “Why would you plead guilty in that environment? That same type of analysis and advice is being provided across the province.” Fewer cases being resolved early mean even more pressure is piled on a system already creaking under intense backlogs. “It’s a bit of a catch-22 for the system,” Surrey defence lawyer Marvin Stern said. “The system starts using its resources in hearing these delay applications.” Stern said delays have worsened over the past year.

“Most people charged with criminal offences stress about it every single day.” Paul Pearson defence lawyer

He sometimes shows up to court in Surrey to find his client is one of four trials slated to go ahead in the same courtroom that day. Prosecutors then must decide which trial will proceed and adjourn the rest. That can mean another trial date — sometimes the third one to be set — 20 months or more after charges were laid, a time period that provides strong grounds for dismissal. To avoid that outcome, prosecutors may

offer a better plea bargain. Stern gives the example of someone charged with impaired driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level over 0.08 where another trial date adjournment will mean the case will almost certainly be tossed. “They may accept a plea bargain to a charge under the Motor Vehicle Act of driving without due care and attention,” he said. The driver pays a $368 fine and gets six penalty points but avoids a possible jail term, a criminal record, a one-year driving prohibition, mandatory safe driving course and required use of an ignition interlock system. “It’s a huge advantage to the client,” Stern said. “When the courts are overbooked, Crown are more likely to do that.” Paul Pearson, a criminal defence lawyer in Victoria and local spokesman for the Cana-

dian Bar Association, said long delays harden the defence bargaining stance. But he rejects suggestions defence lawyers and accused criminals are rubbing their hands in glee over court delays and how they can exploit long waits. “Most people charged with criminal offences stress about that every single day,” Pearson said. “It’s by far the worst thing going on in their life. And they want an answer — yes or no, guilty or not guilty — sooner rather than later.” Lawyers usually aren’t paid more money when they have to make many court appearances, he said, and they must be ready for trial on repeated occasions. “The thousands of people waiting for their trials are agonizing, losing sleep, literally having nightmares every night about the process,” Pearson said. “They don’t make the news. But they’re the ones that are actually paying the price for the delays in the justice system and the lack of judges.”

Childcare, transportation barriers to getting help from PAGE 17

the system — often against their will — the view is much different. “It is essential that we look at the justice system from the bottom up, not the top down, in order to understand its relevance to the resolution of legal problems that people face in their lives,” the longtime family and criminal lawyer told members of the Law Society of B.C. in early March. What judges and lawyers say is not necessarily what the average resident and those “ensnared” in the system want to hear, he said. He said in consultations with more than 100 people, it was found many legal aid users had more immediate and basic hurdles to get past — child care, poverty and transportation issues — before they could begin to worry about getting a lawyer. For many, especially in remote communities, the biggest barrier to justice is just being able to get to the courthouse. “What does it matter if there are more lawyers, or that they all agree to slash their fees, if a single mother looking for child support has no one to look after her kids while she’s in court?” he asked, suggesting improving accessibility — like having more flexible court schedules or daycares in the courthouse — would go a

long way to improving the legal aid system. A second significant component to access to justice, said McKimm, is helping people understand how the legal system can assist them and making them less afraid of the process in general. This, he said, could perhaps be achieved by integrating legal services with trusted social services – instead of sending people to lawyers. “We were told more than once that arming the travelling community health nurse, the local social worker, or an aboriginal elder with information about child protection law or welfare rights — and a list of who to contact for help — was more important than having a lawyer available,” said McKimm. Financially, he said, LSS is working on reducing the cost of large criminal cases so that more resources are available for access to justice initiatives. “If we can lessen the resources — financial and judicial — that the guns-and-gangs cases eat up, there may well be more resources available for access to justice initiatives and legal aid,” said McKimm. “At the end of the day, what people really want from their justice system is resolution of their problems so they can get on with their lives.”

They strive to create a home-like environment where seniors can maintain as much independence as they want and need. “We are all very friendly and the residents are happy,” said Murphy- a mantra that sums up the essence of Magnolia Gardens. Murphy says that when she takes people for tours of the centre, they are greeted by both friendly staff and current resi-

Going Green?

We’ll Show You the Way!

Hummingbirds Return From Southern Winter Homes Lower mainland bird feeding enthusiasts are very excited because Rufous hummingbirds have been spotted throughout the area. These miniature marvels have been migrating between North and Central America for thousands of years, a round trip in which millions of hummingbirds instinctively participate.

Hummingbirds will head back to Mexico and Central America in late summer, early fall. “Before you know it, they will be headed south again,” said Bruce Hutchison, owner of Wild Birds Unlimited. “Then we’ll have to wait until next year for the hummingbird show to return.”

For the next few months, backyards around the area will play host to these amazing, food-frenzied birds. Hummingbirds possess the fastest metabolism of any animal on the planet, burning between one to two times their body weight in food every day. Despite popular belief, hummingbirds do not suck up nectar with their bills. They actually lap it up with their tongues, drawing nectar from its source up and into their mouths almost 12 times a second.

Going Green?

We’ll Show You the Way!

All-Natural Baking Soda Going green often translates to making subtle lifestyle changes to improve prospects for the planet. Limiting the use of chemical products and other harmful materials in everyday life can vastly reduce harmful impact on the world. There are many items that can replace harmful chemicals for cleaning and other purposes. One of the more versatile is baking soda. Commonly found in the kitchen pantry, baking soda can be put to use in that room and beyond. In a traditional sense, baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is a leavening agent used in baking. Baking soda is used in recipes where an acidic ingredient, such as buttermilk or lemon juice, will be used to generate the chemical reaction that releases bubbles of carbon dioxide. This reaction occurs right after the mixing of ingredients, and baking immediately after will be necessary. However, beyond cookies and cakes, baking soda has a number of useful purposes. Because it is all-natural and can be ingested,

it can be used safely and without concern for toxic interactions. Furthermore, baking soda helps regulate pH — keeping a substance neither too acidic nor too alkaline. It is this neutralizing function that can help it limit acid smells in the refrigerator. Here is a look at some of the other ways to put baking soda to use. 1. Mouthwash: Mix a glass of water with one teaspoon of baking soda. Swish and spit out the solution, then rinse. Mouth odors will be neutralized. 2. Deodorant: Pat baking soda under the arms for a natural body odor deterrent. 3. Antacid: Use baking soda as an antacid or to combat sour stomach. The box usually will give directions for making a solution to drink to ease stomach discomfort. 4. Itch remedy: Shake baking soda onto the hand and pat it on damp skin after a shower. 5. Deodorize: Sprinkle baking soda on carpets before vacuuming. Keep a box in the refrigerator or a closet to absorb foul odors.

The Final Expense – Can You Afford It? Jim McGregor Langley Times

you can explore funeral options and flexible payment plans will reduce the stress on your family at a very difficult time.

The author J.K. Rowling writes: “After all, to the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.” To many, that may seem to be a strange comment. Preparing for death is the ultimate procrastination excuse and many are less than organized. After all, someone else will be more than likely looking after all our funeral arrangements and will not consider the task an adventure.

There are many options to explore and organizations such as the Funeral Services Association of B.C. have excellent written guidelines available as well as a detailed website that can provide answers to most of your questions and offers suggestions to families that may be dealing with the death of a loved one for the first time.

For those that are left with that task, what advice have we given them? Have we provided sufficient funds to cover the costs? Have we left clear instructions as to what type of service we desire or to the type of committal of our remains? Many people will answer that their will has provided sufficient funds to cover any funeral costs but probating an estate and getting access to those funds can take months or years and leave family members to cover funeral expenses out of their own pockets. Some financial assistance is available if needed. When a person dies, and there are no resources available to pay for funeral expenses through the individual’s estate or family unit, the Ministry of Social Development may assist with these costs. This service is available to all citizens of British Columbia. The Canada Pension Plan provides $2500.00 for funeral expenses and there are some insurance plans that offer ‘final expense policies’ that will payout to cover costs on the death of the insured.A fu-

neral insurance policy has a death benefit growth that will insure that proceeds of the policy will be there to cover the future cost increases. In addition, most people do not know a funeral pre-arrangement does not have to be paid in a single payment. Funeral insurance plans are available today that can spread payments over a period of one, two, three, four, five and even 10 years. An average funeral in British Columbia can cost anywhere from $7,000.00 to $10,000.00. Depending on the types of services you have requested, the average current costs can be: Professional and administrative services – embalming, funeral home and staff for visitation etc. $ 1,600 Facilities and equipment (preparation room, visitation room, reception room, chapel) $ 850

Transportation (transfer from the place of death, funeral limousine) $ 450 Merchandise (casket, vault, prayer cards, temporary grave marker) $ 2,500

Local funeral homes will also take the time to go over the costs of their services. All funeral providers are required by law to provide you with an itemized price list of the services and products they offer. They must also provide you with a copy of this price list upon request. You can make inquiries in person or by telephone, but before you make a decision, however, it is a good idea to visit the funeral home to ensure that you feel comfortable with the services offered and the personnel in attendance.

Before taxes, the total is: $7200.00.

As it is not always practical to do this after someone has passed away, funeral service providers encourage you to pre-plan the service with your loved ones ahead of time.

A death can be emotionally devastating and financially burdensome if the details are left to the last minute. Too often, major decisions have to be made quickly at a time when the family members are grieving and the results are more emotional than practical. This often leads to animosity among the surviving relatives.

As an alternative to a large funeral service there are some agencies that offer a simple cremation service. This type of memorial may suit individuals and families who may not wish to have a funeral or memorial service or prefer to arrange the memorial on their own, whether directly with a church or other suitable facility such as a commu-

Without a doubt, the funeral industry is experiencing the same rate of inflation that other businesses are. Costs of fuel for transportation, wages, facility overhead and insurance are all part of their business the same a any other. As these costs increase they must be passed on to the consumer.

Recently, I was an executer for a relative who had purchased funeral arrangements with her husband in the eighties. The funeral home honoured her arrangements and indicated on the final invoicing that she had saved in excess of $3000.00 by pre-planning her arrangements, and the majority of the funeral costs had been paid at the time of her passing.

There is no reason to expect the cost of dying to be reduced at any time in the near future. Doing some research now and making some major family decisions without the pressure of time and the burden of emotions can certainly make things easier when the time comes. At a recent presentation by a doctor specializing in geriatric medicine, he stressed the value of preparing a living will. It may be a difficult subject to broach but if we have someone in our life that is ill or infirm, talking with them while they can discuss these important issues can be a major relief to all the family.

Caring for the Past… Building for the Future

Melatonin is a supplement widely used to combat jet lag and alleviate short-term bouts of insomnia. There is also evidence that melatonin as a regular dietary supplement could have antioxidant effects and help slow down the aging process. Melatonin is a hormone produced in the pineal gland of the body. Due to its light-transducing ability, the pineal gland is sometimes called the “third eye.” Light absorbed through the retina is relayed to the brain and thusly the pineal gland. The onset of darkness triggers the pineal gland to release melatonin into the bloodstream, which helps to induce sleep in individuals. Younger people, especially children, produce a large amount of melatonin, which is generally why babies can sleep so much. This ability to fall asleep quickly and sleep deeply has benefits for the growing body, allowing cells to rejuvenate and the body to grow and heal. As individuals age, melatonin production decreases. This can be why many older adults have difficulty falling asleep or seem to need less sleep. Study after study indicates that lack of sleep can lead to myriad health problems, including mental health deficits, added stress, heart disease, and others. Each of these conditions can contribute to the aging process. But that isn’t the only benefit of melatonin, say experts. According to “The Aging Clock: The Pineal Gland

and Other Pacemakers in the Progression of Aging and Carcinogenesis,” by Walter Pierpaoli M.D., Ph.D., melatonin is the “Master HormoneModulating Molecule.” It is the regulator of almost all hormones in the body in addition to regulating the circadian cycles. Dr. Pierpaoli has found that “aging” is a degenerative condition of the body, not just the passing of years. Resetting the body’s age clock can slow down the symptoms of aging. When the pineal gland of an old animal is transplanted into a young animal, studies show that the young animal slows down and systems of the body function as if it were older. The reverse also applies. Dr. Pierpaoli surmises that melatonin sends a message of “youth” throughout the body, keeping the body healthy and strong. With this reasoning, melatonin may also help stimulate the immune system, which can promote better overall health, including fending off certain diseases of old age. These include cancers and even dementias. Clinical trials have shown that melatonin can diminish the effects of hormones that trigger certain cancers, including breast cancer and prostate cancer. A relatively small amount of melatonin is needed to produce large effects. Consult with a specialist on the right amount to take for desired results.

And well before she hit her teens, she’d mapped out a career path that would allow her to follow her passion for decades to come. “I was nine when I decided I was going to teach dance,” said the Langley woman, who in 2011 is marking 40 years as a ballet and modern dance instructor. Even at such a tender age, the choice was clear. That is to say, there wasn’t really a choice at all. “I loved the dancing, but I also enjoyed the process of passing along (the knowledge),” she said. Although she’d already been helping out beginning dancers for years, Cameron registered her first official student shortly before her 17th birthday and never looked back. “At 16, I got the opportunity to take over the classes of a teacher who was leaving,” she explained. Only one of that teacher’s students signed up for her class, so Cameron advertised again and ended up with 11 students in her first session in a rented room at the old Odd Fellows Hall on Eastleigh Crescent. Four decades later, she can picture many of her charges’ faces, but can’t say exactly how many students have come and gone over the years. “I’m not a numbers counter. I remember the individual personalities,” she said. And they, it seems, remember her, too. Last year, that very first student who signed up for the 16-year-old teacher’s class, walked through the doors of Cameron Academy of Classical Dance in Willoughby, to sign up her home-stay student. Cameron had opened her own studio in 1988 after starting her teaching career at Ballet Horizons (which would eventually become Ballet B.C.). She spent three summers on scholarship at Jacob’s Pillow — a dance academy in Becket, Mass. where she was introduced to a range of dance styles, from Indian to tap to jazz. “I got a chance to be involved in genres I wouldn’t have been in Vancouver,” she said.

John GORDON/Langley Times

The foundation of ballet hasn’t changed since the reign of Louis XIV, but while the basics have remained, there have been a few modifications, she noted. Over 40 years, Cameron has seen the incorporation of modern dance into ballet and adapted her teaching techniques to reflect the latest information available in the science of kinesiology. “I love teaching, I love the interaction, giving what I can to them.” “I don’t think the passion has diminished.” The body, on the other hand ... “I see a massage therapist regularly now,” she said. “As you get older, it’s hard to jump as high as you once did, and that’s a bit sad,” she laughs. In 2000, as she was demonstrating a move, she landed badly, tearing all the ligaments in one ankle and breaking a toe. But the teacher has no regrets about the path she’s taken. Having her own home studio allowed her to be there to put her two children to bed every night. It also gave them the opportunity to watch their mom doing what she loved — an experience that shaped each of them in its own way. Her daughter Kelly, 20, is studying to become a dance teacher. Imitation may be sincerest form of flattery, but another one of the highest compliments she’s received came from her son, Scott. Now 27, he danced from the time he was four until he was 10 or 11, she said. He once thanked her for teaching him to dance because it helped him to be co-ordinated in both life and in sports. “That’s nice — especially from a boy,” she said. Many of Cameron’s former students have carried on dancing, while others have used the skills they developed in her class to become more well-rounded people, she said. Among them — “Respect for the art form, respect for music and for your teacher. “You learn self-discipline and that you can achieve more than you expect,” she said. Dance also teaches empathy, Cameron believes. “Watching others struggle and, when they get it, the joy that comes. “What we learn, we take into the world.”

SI of the Langleys hosts Stop Trafficking Forum on March 12th at Langley City Hall Approximately 40 Soroptimists and community representatives gathered to begin a dialogue on creating an effective approach to recognizing and taking steps to rid our communities of Human Trafficking. Moderated by Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, guest panelists included: Mark Warawa, MP Langley Joy Smith, MP Kildonan-St. Paul (via telephone) Jassy Bindra, Pacific Region Human Trafficking Co-ordinator, RCMP Danny Ferguson, Youth Unlimited Mary Pichette, Servants Anonymous Diane Sowden, Children of the Streets Glendene Grant, Crimestoppers, Kamloops Reverend Jamie McIntosh, International Justice Mission Rosalind Currie, Provincial Office to combat Trafficking in Persons Also in attendance were: Mary Polack, MLA and Minister of Children and Family Development Mayor Rick Green, Township of Langley Colleen Schmidt, Governor Western Canada Region Janneke Lewis, North Shore Law LLP, Past Governor Western Canada Region Mark Price, Crimestoppers, Kamloops Dorothy McKim, Ishtar Transition Housing Society Dana Greening, Victim Services Vancouver Alison McVeigh, Langley School Board Karen Bunner, Langley Memorial Hospital The opening address to those gathered was Joy Smith’s “Proposal for a National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking”. MP Smith’s action plan can be viewed at www. joysmith.ca. As a result of discussions and presentations throughout the Forum, Soroptimists realize that we have to be the catalyst to ensure that change is made surrounding legislation and awareness of the impact that Human Trafficking has on communities around the world. We must not let this issue be one that is simply talked about.

Tea time at Fort Gallery Ritual explored in latest exhibit at artists’ co-operative gallery More than just a beverage, tea has become a ritual in cultures throughout the world. So much so, that the very word ‘tea’ is loaded with associations for billions of people from Japan, to England, to colonial North America. Artists Jo-Ann Sheen and Diana Durrand explore the symbolism of tea from their unique perspectives in their joint show Sunday Tea, which opens at the Fort Gallery today (April 20) and will run until May 8. An opening event will be held Thursday, April 21 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sheen incorporates actual tea bags, packaging and the stains left behind by used tea bags into her works. These found objects — after having been steeped and torn for human consumption — are

transformed into kites, quilts and interpreted images.They become expressions of human imagination rather than the leavings of a casual brew. This notion of finding unintended meanings in random patterns and artifacts is a strand that runs through Western art. Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci recommended it as ‘not to be despised’. Of course ‘reading the leaves’ is also a rite associated with tea. But Sheen notes that how we make and consume our morning cuppa has been transformed by the industrial revolution. Her work revives in new forms dimensions of tea sipping that have been largely stripped away in the age of hurry-up consumption. Durrand juxtaposes the sensuous ‘landscape’ of the human

body with the precise art of Victorian china cups in her series. “Sunday Tea is a very personal reflection of a time when leaving the church and the coming of age collided, yet the family ritual of Sunday tea survived,” she said. As such it becomes a metaphor for the decline of Victorian religious and social values in our world, even as we fondly — or unconsciously — continue with the forms and rituals that were part of the Victorian psychic framework. In her works Durrand balances elegant teacups with floral decorative patterns on various parts of the female body. The contrast between controlled, ritualized design and the fluid contours of living, sensuous flesh evokes contradictions, which the viewer must either resolve or live with.

And then there were 15. It turns out Langley really is a hotbed of talent — and it comes in wide range of forms. Langley Has Talent, the first annual variety talent show, presented by the Rotary Clubs of Langley (with the aim of seeing a performing arts centre built in Langley) included dance acts in a range of genres — tap, ballet, modern and jazz — and singers who covered plenty of territory, from country to pop, soul, punk, and even a couple of Broadway show tunes. Judged by Global TV’s travel expert Claire Newell, Langley musician and former Township Councillor, Howie Vickberg and Lissa Lloyd, owner of Lloyd Talent, the contest semifinals, held Saturday at Christian Life Assembly featured the top 29 acts selected from auditions held earlier in the spring. Audience votes, combined with the judges’ decision determined which 15 acts would make it through to the April 30 final, which will see $2,500 in cash as well as industry prizes awarded for first place. Among the acts competing for the top prize will be singer Justin Vanloo — and that news

might well strike a little fear into the heart of another Canadian singer — also, coincidentally, named Justin. Following the 13-year-old’s performance of Bruno Mars’ hit Grenade, contest emcee, JRFM’s Bob Saye, quipped that ‘Bieber fever’ may soon be giving way to ‘Vanloo flu.’ Contemporary dancer Regan Calicetto, praised by Lloyd as “modern, edgy and powerful” moves on, as does jazz dancer Lauren Tokiwa, whom Newell described as “athletic and beautiful to watch.” Rounding out the dancers who continue into the final round are ballerina Melissa Johnston who danced an excerpt from Swan Lake and children’s tap group Bop Til You Drop. Original songs served a num-

ber of contestants well, moving pop-country duo Robyn and Ryleigh (with their song I Believe in Love), country-folk artist Ron May (Dream Lady) and country singer Cory Risling (Hay Yall) into the finals, alongside Britt Bonshor, who accompanied herself on guitar as she sang about missing the simplicity of childhood. Her original song Seven, was a last minute program change in honour of her dad’s birthday. “That’s my favourite new song,” said Lloyd. “It has a lovely, light quality.” Some current pop and country hits got their due as well, as Cassidy Hoflin sang Carrie Underwood’s Cowboy Casanova, Kaitlan Allinger performed The Voice Within, by Christina Aguilera, and Sarah Tummon played piano and sang Sarah McLachlan’s Angel. Tiffany Desrosiers, an amateur artist who has become a regular on Lower Mainland stages over the past few years, performed Adele’s Someone Like You. “I’ve watched you grow and mature,” Lloyd told Desrosiers. “Whenever I get shivers and my hairs stand on end, I know I’m in the presence of greatness, and that’s you.” Digging up a bit of the past, meanwhile, was a fledgling

Bard casting begins As You Like It is coming to Douglas Park this summer. Auditions will be held Sunday May 1, to cast Bard in the Valley’s August production of the comedy by William Shakespeare. “Bard in the Valley joins similar festivals across the country that started with an idea and a vision and are now world class events. They include Bard on the Beach and the Stratford Shakespearean Festival,� said BIV artistic director Allan Thain. “Again this year, The Bard in the Valley Society is also dedicated to the concept of making these performances both affordable and available to a wide audience, and to nurture and promote enthusiasm for the works of Shakespeare and other playwrights, he added. “Although the performances are free, this year we’ll be asking for donations to help cover of the production costs.� Auditions don’t require an appointment, however actors wishing to audition are asked to arrive at the Douglas Recreation Centre at 1 p.m. to hear an outline of the production, performance expectations and rehearsal commitments and to fill out the audition form. Everyone auditioning will be asked to do a cold read from the script and some will be asked to read for specific roles. Don’t send digital headshots or resumes. Bring a printed hardcopy headshot and resume to the audition to be turned in with the audition form. Everyone welcome. For more info, contact Thain at ajthain@ shaw.ca.

Walnut Grove’s Shelby Beck out-races a W.J. Mouat defender during senior girls’ soccer action earlier this season. Beck had a goal and an assist in this game, a 2-1 Gators victory over their Abbotsford opponents. But next season, Beck will be playing in Abbotsford, as a member of the Fraser Valley Cascades.

Doucette added to B.C. roster

+VUÂť[-VYNL[[OL<KKLY6ULZ Many people are unaware of the best way to recycle milk, cream and milk substitute containers. Bringing them to the Return-It Depot guarantees theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be turned into something useful like cardboard boxes and tissue paper. So why not change your good habits. Return your milk containers with your refundable beverage containers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy. Quickly rinse them out and crush them. Remove any caps and bring them too, because they get recycled separately. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no refund on milk empties because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no deposit when you buy, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing the right thing. So on your next trip to Return-It, bring the udder ones too.

NOW YOU KNOW WHERE THEY SHOULD GO.

Running back Reagan Doucette has been added to the roster for the upcoming Football BC U18 camp. Doucette played a key role in helping the bantam Langley Mustangs win the provincial championship last season. One hundred and 34 players will take part in the camp at Simon Fraser University from May 21-23. From that group, 40 will be selected to represent B.C. at the 2011 Football Canada Cup, which will be held July 9-15 in Lethbridge. Three other Langley football players â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeremy McLean (defensive back), Chris Schwartz (defensive lineman) and Kalen McMurchy (running back, kick returner) were invited to the roster last month. UUUUU Ashleah McDonald earned a spot on the U14 girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; B.C. provincial soccer team program. McDonald, who is from Langley, plays her club soccer with the Surdel Storm. This is the second straight season the goalkeeper has been selected for her age group team. UUUUU Langley Gymnastics Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carl Froese won gold on the floor, vault, and all-around, and silver on the pommel horse, rings, parallel bars and horizontal bar at the B.C. provincial gymnastics championships earlier this month. Froese was competing in the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level 1 category, and his name was missed in the April 13 Langley Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recap of the medal winners.

LOWERING THE BOOM

Harry HUNT/Black Press

Aldergrove Totem’s Jenna Hutton gets set to deliver a hit on a would-be D.W. Poppy Redhawks tackler during senior girls’ rugby. Aldergrove won the game 37-0.

Offence leads to hot start for Jr. Blaze The Langley Junior Blaze had a dominating start to the season, powering their way to a pair of convincing victories: 10-0 and 9-1 over the North Shore Jr. Twins. Both games were played at McLeod Park. In the opener, Liam Stroud allowed no hits over five innings, while striking out five, before Aaron Mantle finished the last two innings by allowing just a single hit. The offence pounded out 11 hits, with Nick Rutzky and Mike Billows each driving in a pair of runs. The Jr. Blaze put game two away early,

scoring three runs in the first and five in the second. Rutzky had a two-run

home run and Preston Kokatailo also drove in a pair. Mitchell Kennedy

went the distance, scattering seven hits over seven innings, while striking out four.

Tiering change voted down A vote to create a new system of senior boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball has failed. The proposal suggested changing from the current three tier system â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A, AA and AAA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to a new four-tiered format. Eighty-four people (63 per cent) voted yes on the motion, while 50 were against the

idea. Sixty-seven per cent, or 90 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; votes were needed to pass the motion, which would have created a new AAAA tier of basketball. The motion was given preliminary approval at the B.C. High School Boys Basketball Association annual general meeting last month in Langley. Currently, schools are placed in a tier depending on how many boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; they have in Grade 11 and 12 that school year. Individual schools do have the option to play at a higher tier if they choose. This past season, schools with 80 or fewer boys in

those grades are at the Single A level, 81-225 puts a school at the AA level, and 226 and above places them in the AAA level. Walnut Grove, Brookswood and Langley Secondary are at the AAA level, although Langley did not field a team this year. Aldergrove, D.W. Poppy, R.E. Mountain and Langley Fundamental are all at the AA level, but Langley Fundamental did not field a team. Langley Christian, Credo Christian and Fraser Valley Adventist are at the Single A level.

It was a weekend of mixed results for the Langley Blaze. The U18 baseball team split a pair of doubleheaders against the Victoria Mariners and Nanaimo Pirates to improve their record to 5-2. The Blaze had gone through the first three games of the B.C. Premier Baseball League season without surrendering a run, but that streak came to an end in the second inning on Saturday as the host Mariners struck for a pair against Tom Robson. Langley did get one back in the third, an RBI single from Justin Atkinson, but that was all the offence in a 2-1 loss. Robson went five innings, allowing three hits and four walks, while striking out 10. The Blaze offence struck back in a big way in game two of the doubleheader. Langley scored six runs in the second and then another five in the sixth to rout Victoria 13-3. Dustin Houle went 2-for-4, with a double and a home run, and five RBIs. Jerod Bartnik also had three RBIs. Devon Stewart scattered five hits over four innings, allowing just the one run while striking out seven. Back home at McLeod Park on Sunday, the Blaze dropped the opener, 4-1 to the Nanaimo Pirates. Karl Malecek took the loss, allowing three runs in just over two innings of work. The Blaze managed the split with a 3-0 win. Bartnik powered the offence with three hits and one RBI. And on the mound, Kyle Joel allowed just three hits and struck out six, going the distance for the shutout win.
