The manager of Langley Liberal incumbent Mary Polak has announced he quit because of lack of support by voters and politicians for gay rights. Todd Hauptman, who has been active in politics in Langley since he was a teenager, sent an open letter to Polak Tuesday morning announcing his resignation. Hauptman, who is gay, wrote that the base of Liberal voters in the Langley riding holds “hateful attitudes towards the community I am a part of.” While Polak has always been a supportive friend and shown him respect and love, he he could not continue to support a campaign made up of people who think of him as less of a person because of his sexual orientation, Hauptman wrote. Polak appeared shocked by the sudden resignation. She had met with Hauptman on Monday morning about the campaign of Andrew Mercier, her NDP opponent. “It had come to my attention that there was information disclosed to the other campaign,”

these past weeks. You see, the very base of voters who will likely help Mary get re-elected in just one-week’s time are made up of individuals who hold hateful attitudes towards the community I am a part of,” Hauptman wrote. “It is knowing this that I simply cannot in good conscience support a campaign made-up of people who think of me as less of a person because I am gay. It is for these reasons that – after considerable thought and deliberation – I have decided to step-down from Mary’s campaign effective immediately.” The letter was released on Tuesday morning. As recently as Monday, Hauptman was contacting local media to inform them about local campaign events. The deputy campaign manager will now take over running the campaign. Hauptman has been known locally for his involvement primarily with Polak’s constituency office, for his advocacy for organ transplantation programs – he is the recipient of a kidney transplant – and for working with Fort Langley’s recent Miss Canada Tara Teng on combatting human trafficking. He has worked for Polak for several years. He was politically active as far back as high school, when he spoke to the local school board about bullying policies.

In 1991, when the NDP took power, we had dropped to third place at $663.70. In 2011, after 10 years of Liberal rule, we had dropped to 5th place, at $841.86 per week!

B.C. election

Questions answered as voters go to provincial polls Elections BC is attempting to make it possible for every eligible voter to cast a ballot. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

If you are voting for the first time, for the first time in a long time, or for the first time in a new riding, casting a ballot should not be that difficult. Registered voters will likely have already received their yellow Where to Vote cards in the mail from Elections BC, informing them of their designated polling place for May 14, the general election day.

• What is needed to be an eligible voter? You must be a Canadian citizen who turned 18 on or before May 14 this year. You must have lived in B.C. for six months before the general voting day. You must also register, but this can be done at an Elections BC office or polling place, even on election day. • Where can you vote? The best place to vote is at the polling place named on your card, but you can vote at an Elections BC office, or at one of the early voting polling places, or at another polling place in your riding, or outside of it. You can also vote by mail, but you must request the form from

Elections BC in advance. Call 1-800-661-8683 to request to file an absentee ballot. Maps showing all the polling places in every district in B.C. including advanced polls, are available on the Elections BC website at www.elections.bc.ca. • What ID do you need? The simplest form of ID is the Where to Vote card along with a piece of government issued ID (such as a driver’s licence) with both name and address. If without a government ID, you can identify yourself by using two documents, including utility bills or prescriptions, that have your name on them. At least one document must show your home address to confirm

which riding you live in. The final way is to have someone officially vouch for your identity. The voucher must be one of the following: – Registered as a voter in the same electoral district and able to produce the necessary identification documents; – A spouse, parent, grandparent, or adult child, grandchild, or sibling of the voter; – A person having authority to make personal care decisions in respect of the applicant. • Can someone help you vote? If you are physically unable to mark a ballot, a voting officer or a friend may mark it based on your direction – the friend must

take an oath of secrecy. Voters who have trouble with English can also request a translator at polling places. • Can I have time off from work to vote? Yes, if your shift on voting day would prevent you from casting a ballot, you are entitled to up to four hours off work to leave and cast a ballot. Employers are forbidden from docking pay, but they may determine during which part of the shift the employee can leave, or they may deny time off if there is time at either end of the working day in which to vote. Voting runs from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on May 14. Advanced polls are open now until May 11.

Brazen thieves swipe booze Three suspects headed straight for the high-end alcohol in a smash and grab robbery.

A trio of unsubtle thieves made off with more than $1,500 in liquor in a smash and grab robbery in Aldergrove, Langley RCMP say. Just after 3 a.m. on May 2, police were alerted to a burglary at the liquor store in the 26300 block of Fraser Highway, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local Mounties. The thieves were gone when police arrived, but surveillance footage showed what had happened. Three people smashed the glass in the store’s front door with a car jack, and two of them headed inside. They began passing bottles of expensive liquor to the thief remaining outside the store.

The alcohol and the thieves departed in a red Honda Civic hatchback with after-market 12-spoke rims, Marks said. All three suspects are Caucasian. The first two are men in their mid 20s, one with a beard, grey sweatshirt, black pants, and black sneakers, the other with black hair, a grey sweatshirt with gold lettering, blue jeans with tears in both legs, and black shoes. The final thief, of indeterminate gender, is heavyset and was wearing a black Tshirt with a white logo, black pants, and black shoes. Anyone who can help identify the thieves or give police a tip can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, CrimeStoppers at 1800-222-8477 (TIPS).

LangleyAdvance

Vote for your responsibility

If you don’t vote, you give up your right to complain. If you aren’t willing to contribute to the democratic process at election time, how can you justify complaints about the outcome? Nationally, voting no longer has appeal for more than a third of citizens eligible to cast ballots. Canada’s steady decline over the past four decades has taken us below 60 per cent voter participation – four of every 10 eligible voters in Canada don’t concern themselves with federal elections. Provincially, the voter turnout dropped to a dismal Email with 50 per cent last time British Columbians went to the polls, in 2009 – a drop of eight full percentage points from the previous election. (Sadly, those numbers would be deemed exceptionally high in nearly all of our municipal contests through the past many decades.) While millions around the world fervently wish – and tens of thousands die – for what we enjoy in Canada, we have lost our understanding of the difference between our rights and our responsibilities in a democracy. To put it simply: our rights for ourselves are what we put at risk by failing to maintain our responsibilities to each other. It’s easy to blame the politicians – their equivocation, their disingenuousness, their self-serving disregard for the citizens who place their trust in them. But that’s just another excuse. They wouldn’t get away with their questionable antics without the complicity of an apathetic citizenry. Our disregard for the role expected of them results in their disregard for exercise of that role. Get out and vote on Tuesday (or earlier, at the advance polls), or voice your complaints about the outcome to the only person who is really responsible: yourself. – B.G.

Agicultural Advisory Committee

Township advisor resigns

Dear Editor, We will see the end of our beloved rural area, as the first developer now has his feet firmly ensconced under the table [Farm vote angers advisor, page A30]. It amazes me that the variances could be approved with so many questions left unanswered. They claim a “state of the art” sewage treatment plant, but they don’t even have a candidate, and there was no track record available. Should there be a leak or crack in the system, sewage will seep directly into our aquifer. Did anyone think to ask what would happen if there were an earthquake? It’s fine for the developer to take out adequate insurance, but homeowners would lose their family homes if their land was contaminated. No one could guarantee that the 30,000 gallons of “cleaned” effluent that would be pumped into the aquifer daily from the 65home subdivision would always be “clean.” The system is designed for 40 years? What happens after that if the strata has no money to replace it or it deteriorates before those 40 years? Where does the sewage go? Right into our drinking water! There could not possibly have been more vague answers to Coun. Richter’s questions about the water source. It took many repetitions of almost the same question to finally get the answer we all knew was coming: it would be partially from Metro Vancouver

and partially from our fragile aquifer. It was apparent to all of us that the majority of council had already made up their minds, no matter what any of the attendees had to say. How happy will farmers – the ones who really deserve to be on the agricultural land – be, going over the proposed traffic-calming speed bumps on tractors. All in all, it was a most to the disappointing evening. I am personally disappointed after having spent five years on the Agricultural Advisory Committee (AAC), and have finally realized that the committee’s opinions mean nothing. Our committee unanimously recommended that this development be turned down when it was first proposed, but all our concerns apparently fell on deaf ears. And now we are supposed to sit back and watch all the new applications for development flood in – because once a precedent is set, the floodgates will be wide open. I will continue to love the area that I live in, and continue to promote agriculture, but I will no longer waste my time trying to stop “change” – it’s very clear to me that money talks, and the developers with the most money win. And we all lose. I am resigning from the AAC, effective immediately. Pam Erikson, Salmon River Uplands

Polak wrong about homosexual ‘sin’

Dear Editor, If Ms. Polak is going to use the umbrella of religious freedom to excuse her attitude towards gay people in general, she should get the facts of her own faith straight. It isn’t “homosexuality” that’s a sin, and you can’t compare it to “eating meat,” which is an act. Homosexuality is the attraction or desires that one has within. In any faith, and most certainly Christian ones such as the Catholic faith she has quoted, it’s the act that’s the sin, not the desire within. If one wants meat but doesn’t act on it, they are not sinning. In that alone, it’s a misrepresentation of her own rules.

Theological reasoning aside (and I’m being generous with that description in this letter), it’s also the very same nonsensical excuse that has been used by many, many people to demonize homosexuality. It’s a leaping-off point that often leads to such horrible, distasteful, and disrespectful displays of people using incredibly sensitive events to spread highly inflammatory and hateful messages. I am a parent of two wonderfully open-minded children who were brought up with tolerance and not homophobia. If Ms. Polak wins the election, it will send a rather stark message to youth who

Plan will bottleneck traffic

Dear Editor, South Langley residents are learning about another poor plan from Langley Township hall. The most obvious flaw in the plan is to put 180,000 square feet of commercial space at the corner of 200th Street and 40th Avenue, with only 200th as a through street. The Township wants to make 40th a major four-lane connector road that will obviously route thousands upon thousands more vehicles that now use it from Highway 99 at 32nd Avenue in Surrey to Fraser Highway at 240th Street. They will bottleneck at 200th and 40th. Almost every busy cross street from 16th Avenue to the south on 200th Street north to the freeway at 88th Avenue now has more than its fair share of accidents, and now it seems that 24th, 32nd, and 40th Avenues are to join them.

are being bullied in schools (for being either overly “butch” or “effeminate,” depending on gender and classmates’ suspicions). If it’s okay for one of the more outspoken leaders in government to claim that there’s religious or holy justification in denying them, then they will wonder how truthful the government is in claiming to help them? It’s not the sort of leadership appreciated by many parents who will suffer the heartache of watching their children suffer a lifelong ordeal… or commit suicide, as so many children often do when they believe the incredibly insensitive, intolerant words like those of Ms. Polak. And if she is endorsed with a win, what does that say about Langley, for that matter? I’m not proud of being associated with this city right now, with her the current incumbent in the Langley riding, even though my actual riding is Fort Langley-Aldergrove. If she had any decency, she’d step down, or at the very least, understand what she said is detrimental to current attempts to stem teen suicide – not to mention skirting around the edges of Canada’s hate laws, using religious freedom as an excuse.

Gun in pants gets three years An armed and armoured man was given federal jail time after an arrest in Langley. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A repeat offender found with a loaded gun in the waistband of his pants received a three-year jail term this month. Dale Lorne Kerry Shawcross, 30, was arrested in Langley on Dec. 7 last year after an investigation by the Langley RCMP Street Enforcement Unit. He came to the attention of the unit last year, having already racked up more than 35 criminal convictions, including property crimes, driving offenses, and assault with a weapon, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. He was pulled over and arrested on Glover Road for possession of stolen property.

Come in and discover the one-on-one attention and expertise that will get you moving with the shoe that’s right for you.

LET’S FIND YOUR PERFECT FIT.

While several officers were present, Marks said, Shawcross resisted being handcuffed. “He would not give us his hands,” she said. No officers were assaulted. When he was finally cuffed, a loaded .40 calibre pistol was found stuffed down the front of Shawcross’s pants. He was also wearing soft body armour at the time. On May 1, Shawcross pleaded guilty to possession of a restricted firearm and another gun-related offence. In addition to three years behind bars, he was given a lifetime ban on owning firearms, said Marks. “We are very happy with the sentence given to Shawcross,” said Supt. Derek Cooke, the head of the Langley RCMP detachment. “Obviously the court is recognizing the threat that guns pose to our community. Hopefully, this will send a clear message to those who may be inclined to consider a criminal lifestyle involving firearms.”

Driver in fatal collision didn’t know he had brain tumour An undiagnosed brain tumour may have contributed to a crash that has claimed six. by Tom Zytaruk Glacier Media

Doctors and RCMP traffic collision analysts are trying to determine if a brain tumour was a contributing factor in the

South Surrey crash that killed five members of the Sachdeva family of Newton. The driver who ran into them, Daniel Gore, 46, of Langley, died Sunday afternoon after undergoing surgery at Royal Columbian Hospital. He initially was the sole survivor of the crash. He was taken to hospital, and had remained there since. “The deceased passed away following surgery for a condition that was discovered as a result of being critically injured

in the accident,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said. “The investigation into this accident continues as the investigators work to establish all contributing factors to this accident.” He added, “There might not be answers to all of the questions.” Paquet said police did not have a chance to speak with Gore about the crash, given his condition. Jessica Sachdeva, three, Annish Sachdeva, five, the children’s mother

Pawandeep Arjot, 31, their aunt Neelam Rani Dhingra, 47, and grandmother Vidya Wanti Sachdeva, 68, were killed on April 28 when a Dodge Caravan driven by Gore broadsided their Toyota Corolla after blowing through a red light at 32nd Avenue and 176th Street (Pacific Highway). The impact of the crash hurled the Corolla into a metal street post. Debris was scattered as far as 100 metres.

Store openings are on Target The Langley Target store was one of several that opened up Tuesday. by Glen Korstrom, Glacier Media

Target Canada opened its first nine stores in B.C. as well as 13 others across western Canada. Included in the May 7 openings was the Langley store that replaced the Zellers at Willowbrook Shopping Centre. A 10th B.C. store and one additional Alberta store will open next week. The openings are part of a 124-store rollout across Canada that is set to be com-

plete by the end of the year. New Metro Vancouver Target stores opened this week include ones in Coquitlam’s Coquitlam Centre and Delta’s Scottsdale Mall. The other stores across B.C. included ones in Campbell River, Cranbrook, Kamloops, Nanaimo, Vernon and Victoria. All stores will carry the full range of products offered at U.S. stores, except for alcohol. There will also be some regional variation in what the stores carry to cater to customer demand. “We will have a differentiated assortment of products in certain categories, especially food,” Target Canada president Tony Fisher said.

He spoke to Glacier Media’s Business in Vancouver May 6, following a speech to the Vancouver Board of Trade. “Think about things like steamers and rice cookers. We’re overinvesting in things like that in Vancouver versus the rest of the chain.” The rollout comes more than two years after Target’s January 2011 announcement that it would pay the Hudson Bay Co. $1.825 billion for up to 220 Zellers leases. Target Canada later confirmed buying 189 of those leases, of which it sold 39 to Walmart Canada. The leases that it will not use for its planned 124 store openings were either sold to other retailers or returned to land-

Walmart bought most of Woolco’s 120 Canadian stores in 1994 and started its Canada-wide expansion. “We might see that approach again because the incremental approach of locating one store and then expanding your distribution network by one store each time you expand is so costly and time consuming,” Smerdon told BIV. “There also might not be the real estate available.”

the same amount of service. Make an electable board of directors accountable to ridership, as well; the current system does not work, and provides us with next to no-service. Coleman: Only if the business case can be made for it, but TransLink has legal authority. Dyson: Lack of effective transit is a key issue in this constituency. We must consult with the users and the Township to find ways to address the problems. An NDP government would invest a portion of carbon tax revenues to enhancing transit services and reform TransLink to allow elected municipal representation to make decisions. 8. Should all Lower Mainland bridges and tunnels be tolled to fund TransLink?

David: Yes, if tolling is going to be the mechanism of acquiring money for TransLink then all bridges and tunnels should be tolled to make it fair and equitable. 9. Do you believe that our public schools are adequately funded to provide full educational opportunities for our children?

Mitchell: Yes, I believe that, like a charity, 98-plus per cent of the funds must be directed to child education, not administrative and other overheads. Teachers and parents with support from administration should set these priorities within a minimal legislative framework. Dyson: An NDP government would invest $100 million over three years to improve classroom conditions and hire new teachers, special education assistants, librarians, and counsellors. 11. Do you support balanced budget legislation?

Manuel: Yes. We are the only party with policy drafted to support this undertaking. Not “balanced budgets” like the past two decades, which doubled and then doubled again our current debt load under the NDP and Liberals to a staggering $65 billion. The current Liberals’ plan for balan-

cing the budget entails selling all the cows on the dairy farm! Even after all the rhetoric, the Liberals have tabled another $7 billion for this year and another $6 billion over the next three years to be added to the provincial debt. How is that balancing the books? David: No, it will only put pressure on the government to claim it has a balanced budget when it may not, or increase the use of drastic measures to get a balanced budget, such as selling of Crown assets which result in short term thinking instead of a long term, sustainable focus. 15. Should the province do more to protect the Agricultural Land Reserve?

Coleman: The legislation works pretty well now. Dyson: The BC NDP introduced the Agricultural Land Reserve in the 1970s and we are committed to strengthening the ALR and the Agricultural Land Commission. We will support the agricultural industry in Langley, strengthen food security, and promote environmental stewardship. 19. Should MLAs’ pensions be tied to median pensions of their constituents?

Coleman: No, MLAs’ pensions and compensation are determined by an independent review. 20. Should there be more referendums, to give citizens more input into government policy?

David: Government, once elected, should be trusted to do the job that they were voted in to do without checking with the public on costly referendums. However, government should not be allowed to make election promises without keeping them, and there should be recall legislation if government does not follow through with or does the opposite of what they promised to do if elected.

Acclaimed magician Wes Barker is back, performing a show for his hometown fans this weekend. Barker, a D.W. Poppy grad and athlete who almost broke a world record in 2011 for the one-mile fireman carry, and who gained further local notoriety by escaping the confines of a straight jacket while suspended over the streets of downtown Langley the same year, is performing at Cascades Casino on Saturday. This time, the local illusionist is threatening to not only demonstrate his classic straight-jacket escape, but he’s vowing to swallow a balloon, walk on broken glass, and introduce a few new tricks involving goldfish, a beach ball, and a vanishing girl. Since performing last for local fans during a sold-out show at Cascades in November, Barker said he’s been performing at colleges and corporate events across the country. And more recently, he was a guest on Vancouver’s hit talk show, The Rush. Now, he’s returning to the Summit Theatre stage for a show he’s calling, “Jokes on Me,” that combines magic, comedy, and stunts. In fact, in addition to Barker’s turn on stage, he’ll be joined by another Fraser Valley performer, comedian Sunee Dhaliwal. Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show running from 8 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $25 and available in advance from the casino’s guest services or stuntmagician.com.

The Walnut Grove Business Association and the Rotary Club of Langley are gearing up for the second annual Family Day festival on June 22. They have confirmed that Bruce will be performing two shows, and WGBA president Moe Wetzel also confirmed Langley’s own Cole Armour has been invited back, along with some of the contenders from last weekend’s Langley Has Talent. The festival is about the Walnut Grove businesses giving back to the community, Wetzel said, as well as raising money for less fortunate students in the Walnut Grove area. This year’s activities will include games, the Re/Max balloon, bouncy castles, pony rides, petting zoo, clowns, facepainting, bingo, and lots of food on the track at Walnut Grove Secondary.

Marguerite Whelton is seldom without her sketch book, capturing scenes in graphite and India ink for future paintings: “My most productive hours are in the winter days, when I select the material gathered in the summer months from my trips, from photos and sketches.

Opening day

Worldwide travels provide inspiration Fort Langley watercolourist Marguerite Whelton joins in FLAGs season opener this weekend. by Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

L View Video With

angley painter Marguerite Whelton may work primarily from photographs and sketches she gathers during her global excursions, but she is adamant that art should not be like a photograph. “An artist’s true creativity is only achieved by highlighting exaggerating and suppressing certain essentials,” she told the Langley Advance. That’s what this relatively new member of Fort Langley Artists Group hopes comes across in the three watercolour paintings she’s picked for the FLAG’s season opener this weekend. She’s submitting three recently completed pieces, Waiting for the Hunter, a painting of her two Labrador retrievers, The Toucan, and The Eagle, to be included in their Fur, Fins, and Feathers show opening Saturday. The Amsterdam-born but South African-raised Whelton said she’s enjoying the challenge of FLAG’s themed shows: “…many times this is completely outside of what I normally paint,.” Her budding artistic talent was first put to use in creating advertising posters for display in the Johannesburg area years ago. The hobby artist hasn’t looked back since. Her earliest works were in oil, and from there she moved to acrylics. However she found her niche with what she calls the “freshness and luminosity” of watercolour. While she enjoys painting landscapes, scenics, and animals, she reserves “a special interest in portrait study and the accompanying challenge of revealing the character and personality of the subject.” And her frequent visits to Europe and North Africa given her fodder for her art: “My travels have provided me with an inexhaustible wealth of material. Cultures that are substantially different from ours are to me the most fascinating and challenging,” she told the Advance, pointing to the picture taken (above) in her studio where she used a photo to complete a watercolour in subdued colours of a back street in Istanbul, while a completed painting in the background shows a scene from an Italian street in vivid colour. “This is what I enjoy most of all, bringing out the variety of life as it is lived,” Whelton said. The show featuring a few of Whelton’s pieces opens Saturday, and runs to June 16 at the FLAGstop Gallery in the historic CN Station on Glover Road in Fort Langley. For more information about the group and hours of operation, people can log on to their website at: www.fortlangleyartistsgroup.com.

Maintenance

Ground-covers nurtured to cut workload

A

few weeks ago a harassed gardener asked me if there are any maintenance-free plants. Apparently “weeds” was not the answer she was seeking. Anyone who wants a non-weed garden will be faced with some maintenance at some stage, but some plants are certainly less needy than others – and choosing those can easily reduce maintenance. For instance, gardeners who focus on native plants as habitat and a food supply for wildlife can enjoy a much more relaxed type of garden. Many native plants, such as salmon berries, thimbleberries, Indian plum, and salal have beautiful flowers and nutritious berries, but they’re only maintenance-free for a while. Later, because they’re so well adapted to our soil and climate they cover more and more space as roots expand and seeds find good spots to sprout. At some point, the gardener must pick up a spade and establish firm boundaries for paths, driveway, and other valued areas. And it can become a yearly task. Native ferns are much closer to being truly maintenance-free. One of the easiest is the native sword fern. It’s an evergreen which does best in a moist, shady situation, and the old fronds form a thick, mulching carpet that surrounds the plant and suppresses weeds. Ground-covers are generally thought to be maintenance-free also, but in the early stages, diligent weeding is essential. It’s not difficult to end up with weeds that a groundcover will actually hide until they’re difficult to uproot.

Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to amarrison@shaw.ca

In the Garden by Anne Marrison

And all ground-covers are invasive to some degree. The more invasive they are, the more successfully they cover ground. Groundcovers such as Vinca minor and Vinca major, Ajuga species, Cerastium tomentosum (Summer Snow), or Lamium galeobdolon (Yellow Archangel) can turn into unstoppable monsters in mild climates. Many are on invasive plant lists. With these and others, sooner or later, gardeners must resort to stopping a ground-cover’s headlong rush for more living room. And a few ground-covers, such as Kenilworth Ivy and some lamiums, can also climb. Some sprawling shrubby groundcovers, such as Cotoneaster dammeri and junipers, can grow into a dense

cover in which weeds won’t germinate, but there is still the initial weeding as one gets them established. In our West Coast climate, rhododendrons demand less attention than most other plants, but no matter how small a rhododendron seems in the garden centre, many are destined to become big shrubs, and some become trees. A crucial point is planting them where they have room to expand. A spot under windows or close to doors will lead to major pruning as the rhododendron matures. The smaller rhododendrons fit best into city-lot size gardens, including purplish-pink-flowered PJM rhododendrons and the pink or white-flowered rhodo yakusimanum and its hybrids. There are also some ornamental trees that get by with little or no pruning or care, once they’re safely planted. One is Sorbus aucuparia (mountain ash), which has beautiful red or orange (rarely yellow) berries that are a feast for birds in the fall. Crataegus species can also be left to grow in their own way. These various kinds of hawthorn produce flowers that are usually white or pink (sometimes double). Fruits may be red, orange, yellow, or black, depending on the species.

“Yes You Can: A Simple Guide to a Longer, healthier and Happier Life for Seniors.”

Langley Community Music School fiddlers perform May 15.

Concert

Students offer fiddle-fused fun

Music school fiddlers set to rock Rose Gellert Hall next week.

A

fiddle-fuelled concert will take fans on a genre-hopping trip across North America to the Ukraine, with stops in between to sample some Celt-ified, classically twisted, good ol’-time, foot stompin’ music next week at Langley Community Music School. The local school is once again hosting its annual May concert, this one spotlighting the musical talents of the school’s own fiddlers with a little help from a backup band. “Our annual concert in May offers the LCMS fiddlers a great opportunity to collaborate with professional musicians and to present the community with a program of genre crossing fiddle fused fun,” said music teacher and faculty member Andrea Taylor, who will lead the May 15 show.

LCMS fiddle students will perform music from a variety of fiddling traditions, including Celtic, bluegrass, Cape Breton, South American, old time, and Slavic tunes, Taylor explained. And backing up the fiddlers will be guitarist Dan Ross, guitar, as well as bass player Tim Stacey, bass and drummer Mike Michalkow, and soprano singer Karen Ydenberg. It’s no coincidence this band was picked to accompany the students in this concert, Taylor said, noting they have a few ties to the school. For instance, Ross’ daughter Chloe is a member of the LCMS fiddlers, while Stacey is a member of the Langley Community Music School faculty. The concert is being held Wednesday, May 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the music school’s Rose Gellert Hall, 4899 207th St. in Langley. Admission is by donation.

Salmon River Uplands

Farm vote angers advisor by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A prominent Langley resident has resigned from the Township’s Agricultural Advisory Committee after a vote to build housing in a rural area. “We dedicated hours to this subject back in 2010,” said Pam Erikson, about the project. She resigned by letter after Township council voted 6-3 in favour of the strata project Monday. While her committee has an advisory role, she said they were entirely opposed to the project. Why give advice if it will be ignored, she asked. The vote saw Councillors Kim Richter, Michelle Sparrow, and David Davis hold out against the project to build 65 homes in dense rows in the southern third of the land at the 24400 block of 60th Avenue. The 85 acre site would be divided into a northern

portion that will remain farmland, and a southern third for the subdivision, including a ravine and public trails. Six neighbours spoke out against the project, and the Township received a number of letters in opposition as well. “I don’t think it’s right to put that much traffic on that narrow road,” said Jim Davis, who lives nearby. “I think the subdivision is wrong for the area,” said Davis. “There isn’t any stores, there isn’t any facilities out there to handle the people.” The density of the development, the added traffic, concerns about runoff from 65 new homes into the groundwater, and the overall environmental impact of the site were among the main concerns of residents. “I don’t live in Yorkson for a reason,” said resident Shazia Mele. She worried about it setting another precedent for high density in rural areas. “If this kind of development is being proposed and approved, where is it going to stop?” she asked. Gordon Cameron, the vice-president of Canadian Horizons, spoke for the

builders, along with traffic and water and sewage consultants. Cameron said the homes are being clustered in the southern part of the lot, along the edges of a ravine, to preserve farmlands. For years, the land was an “antenna farm” with little or no actual agriculture taking place there. The division of the land into a dense subdivision to the south and open fields to the north will be protected by a covenant and has been given preliminary approval by the Agricultural Land Reserve, Cameron noted. While several residents raised concerns about water, the builders said they won’t be drawing any liquid from the Hopington aquifer. Instead, water will come from the new Metro Vancouver pipeline being built to provide drinking water to Aldergrove. The project was just kicked off earlier this month. Sewage will be treated on-site and cleaned water will be released back into the ground, potentially replenishing the aquifer. Richter grilled the builders about how the septic systems will be built and maintained. The project will be a strata development so that residents will remain responsible for the sewage system, which is expected to last about 40 years. Richter and two fellow councillors felt that the project wasn’t a good fit for the area. “This council likes to put subdivisions in the middle of farmland,” said Davis. Coun. Charlie Fox countered that the project has added to farmland, by putting the northern portion of the site back to work for the first time in years. “This was zoned preALR,” Fox said the residential component. The opinion of Mayor Jack Froese, who lived in the area for many years, has shifted, he said. Originally, he was strongly opposed when the project first came up several years ago. Now, with much of the land protected and the water coming from outside the aquifer, he believes its the way to go. Froese said that when land is subdivided up into one-acre parcels, it is lost to productive farming forever. This will keep the productive land as farms. The vote was on a series of development variance permits for the site. Erikson said that she will remain as vice-president of the Langley Sustainable Agriculture Foundation, which is private.

Aldergrove

Water supply project ‘investment in our future’ A new water pipeline has started construction to bring H2O to Aldergrove.

A new pipeline that will bring safe, clean, and sustainable drinking water to Aldergrove and Gloucester is being built. A groundbreaking ceremony was held May 1 to signify the start of construction of the East Langley Water Supply. Through the $33.5 million project, Metro Vancouver water will be piped in to residents and businesses in

this area of the Township. “This project is an investment in our future,” said Mayor Jack Froese. “Aldergrove and Gloucester’s current water supply comes from ground water aquifers and aging wells, and long-term monitoring has shown this is not sustainable. With construction of this pipeline, we will secure a dependable water source for people living and working in east Langley now, and ensure supply meets demand as the community continues to grow. It will significantly pay off in the long run.” The current water supply

Traffic

Portion of 216th Street closing for construction One of Langley’s major streets will be blocked until July for the construction of a new watermain. The Township will be shutting 216th Street to traffic between 56th Avenue and 64th Avenue starting the week of May 13, and ending July 1. The closure is for the construction of the new East Langley Water Supply pipeline, a 14-kilometre pipe that will carry Metro Vancouver water to Aldergrove and the Gloucester Industrial Park. The Township is advising residents to detour around the closed road to the east, to 232nd Street.

for those not on individual wells in east Langley comes from seven groundwater wells. The wells can’t meet existing demands, especially in the summer months. In recent years, stage three water restrictions have been put in place each summer. Meanwhile, the Township is planning to increase the population of Aldergrove from about 12,000 to 20,000 people over the next two to three decades. The East Langley Water Supply – the biggest project ever undertaken by the Township of Langley’s Engineering Department – requires the installation of 14 kilometres of trunk water main and construction of a large booster pump station. Phase one, which was launched this week, will see a 900mm (36”) diameter steel watermain installed between Willoughby and Murrayville, with a planned route following 72 Avenue, 210 Street, Worrell Crescent, 216 Street, 56 Avenue, and 224 Street. Work is scheduled to run Monday to Friday, from

Project Manager Dave McCormick shows Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese and Councillor Charlie Fox the pipeline that will bring a long-term, dependable water supply to east Langley. May through December. The project is expected to be up and running by the summer of 2014. “The Township of Langley is committed to providing the entire community with a long-term, reliable water supply,” said Ramin Seifi, Langley Township’s general manager of Engineering and Community Development. “We are also committed to creating a sustainable future by caring for our environment.

e c a l P r u o Y of Worship

“By bringing in water from Metro Vancouver, the rate at which our local aquifers are being depleted will be reduced and their ability to recharge will be enhanced.” The East Langley Water Supply Project is the top infrastructure priority for the Township and was included in the 2012 budget. Public consent was sought to borrow the funding required to complete the project, which will not be paid through

Local rookies contribute to Eagles playoff run

A pair of Langley players helped the Surrey Eagles advance to the RBC Cup national championship for the first time since 1998. by Troy Landreville

sports@langleyadvance.com

The Surrey Eagles, including Langley’s Jordan Klimek and Kevan Kilistoff, started their playoff run way back in midMarch. A 2-0 win over the Langley Rivermen in their B.C. Hockey League playoff opener March 15 got the Eagles off the ground. Two months later, the Birds are still flying, still grinding, still scoring, still blocking shots and bodychecking, all the way to Summerside, P.E.I. and the RBC Cup national junior A hockey championship. That game one victory many moons ago started the Eagles rolling. They dispatched the Rivermen in four games in their best-offive series; the Chilliwack Chiefs in three straight contests in their best-of-five set; the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in four straight games in their best-of-seven conference final; and finally the defending champion Penticton Vees in six hard-fought contests to win the Fred Page Cup BCHL championship series. From there they moved on to the inaugural Crescent Point Western Canada Cup (WCC) tournament in Nanaimo. After losing their opener 4-2 to the Brooks Bandits on April 27, the Eagles won their next four, including the final. In Saturday’s championship game, the Eagles beat the Bandits 4-1 to take the WCC title. Along the way they earned a coveted berth to the RBC Cup.

Klimek said the BCHL playoff and WCC tournament victories have made an already close team even closer. “We’ve always been a pretty close-knit team,” he said. “The coaches are always treating us well and we’re playing for each other, out there.” Asked which team gave the Eagles the most trouble on their road to the RBC Cup, Kilistoff didn’t hesitate. “Definitely the hardest was Penticton,” Kilistoff said, of a Vees team that finished with a 35-16-0-5 regular season record, and won both the Fred Page Langley Advance files and RBC cup titles last spring.

Langley Minor Lacrosse’s bantam B1 squad struck gold at the Barnburner Tournament in Penticton last weekend. The Langley Thunder went undefeated during the May 3-5 tournament, taking it to the gold medal game. In the championship contest against North Okanagan, the Thunder opened up the scoring with hard work and a well-placed shot from Adam Hannesson. Langley battled hard during the game as Aidan Miller scored twice to put his team ahead 3-1. The Thunder wasn’t able to hold on to the lead, however. North Okanagan scored a pair of goals to send the game into overtime.

The Langley Thunder B1 lacrosse team won gold at the Penticton Barnburner tournament, held May 3-5 in Penticton. During the extra session, goaltender Adam Cafe kept Langley in the game and then with 13:20 left on the clock Matt Trafford fired a hard shot to give the Thunder a 4-3 victory.

…continued from page A33 “We immediately focused on playing our game, doing what we can, and be successful that game.” Looking ahead to the RBC Cup, Klimek said the Eagles just need to keep doing what they’ve been doing when they face the Minnesota Wilderness (the first American team to ever play for Canada’s junior A title), Truro Bearcats, Brooks Bandits, and host Summerside Western Capitals. “We’re going to see teams we haven’t seen before; we’re not familiar with them,” Klimek said. “But if

we stick to our game plan, we’ll be fine.” The Eagles open the May 11-19 tournament this Sunday against the Bearcats.

Klimek had a solid rookie campaign, registering six goals and 23 points in 52 regular season games. Kilistoff, who played junior B hockey with the Richmond Sockeyes in 2011/12, said he’s willing to do whatever the Eagles’ coaches ask of him in order to help the squad win hockey games. He registered seven goals along with 17 points in 52 regular season games. The 6’ 190 pounder noted that the acquisitions of forward Brady Shaw and goaltender Michael Santaguida helped solidify the team.

McCready faces Thunder ’mates

Fun on the lanes Team Ontario members shared a light moment Saturday at Willowbrook Lanes during the YBC 4 Steps to Stardom five-pin and 10-pin national finals. Willowbrook Lanes hosted bantam-aged teams during the competition, held May 4-6 at bowling lanes throughout Greater Vancouver. In the senior boys team competition in Maple Ridge, the Willowbrook Lanes contingent of Casey Robitaille, Braydyn Ingebrigtsen, Brandon Kirk, and Ryan Edwards rolled to the gold medal.

…continued from page A35

“I’ve been down this road before, but there are definitely some butterflies leading up to it,” Grimes said. “The week can’t go by fast enough, really. I’m looking forward to four o’clock on Saturday and getting down to the battle.” McCready is the lone Thunder player on the Knighthawks’ roster. The Maple Ridge resident is banking on being in the Rochester lineup come game time. “It will be great to play there,” he said, regarding the game being moved to the LEC. “It’s good for the sport and the growth of the game to be in the arena. I’m excited about the opportunity to play in the Lower Mainland.” Despite the fact he’s played in the LEC as a member of the Thunder, McCready doesn’t believe being in familiar digs will give him or his Thunder counterparts with the Stealth an advantage, one way or another. “At the end of the day, lacrosse is still lacrosse,” he said. “It will be a battle – a good night, for sure.” There will be no hard feelings after the game between him and his future teammates, McCready predicted. “It’s kinda part of the sport,” he said. “Whenever the game starts, there are no friends – everybody wants to win. When it’s game time, you go 100 per cent. It doesn’t matter who you are playing against, you are fighting for the win.” The final block of tickets for the NLL championship game are available for purchase online at www.ticketmaster.ca or through the LEC website, www.langleyeventscentre.com.

Jr. Thunder play home opener tonight at LEC Langley Jr. Thunder is off to a scintillating start to its lacrosse season. And they hope to keep the ball rolling tonight (May 9) when they host the Port Coquitlam Saints in the Jr. Thunder’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League home opener. Game time at the Langley Events Centre is 8 p.m. The Jr. Thunder is one of three undefeated teams in the BCJALL. Delta leads the way with a 3-0 rec-

ord, while the Jr. Thunder and Victoria Shamrocks each boast 2-0 records. The Jr. Thunder’s most recent victory came against the Burnaby Lakers. Langley outshot Burnaby 59-35 and outscored the home team by a 13-5 margin. Brett Dobray and Adam Will each had a hat trick and two assists to pace the Jr. Thunder attack. William Vanden Hooven, Zack Porter, and Sean Lundstrum each scored a

pair for the Jr. Thunder, while Brendan Mykle-Winkler rounded out Langley’s goal-scorers. The Jr. Thunder is looking to qualify for the BCJALL post-season for the second straight year. In 2012 the team finished with a 12-9 record before beating Port Coquitlam in two games in the opening round of the playoffs. The Jr. Thunder then fell in three games to Coquitlam in the BCJALL semifinal series.

Mabel Lilly Harty passed away peacefully on May 4, 2013, at Jackman Manor, Aldergrove, BC with family by her side. Mabel will be lovingly remembered by her six children: Verne (Sue), Janette (Gerald), Marion (Abe), Liane (Dan), Darryl (Debbie), and Karen (Brian); her sister Luella Hammer; 18 grandchildren, 23 greatgrandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews, and friends. Her gentleness, caring heart, amazing love, complete devotion to her family and friends, and her faith in God were qualities so admired and respected. Mabel was predeceased by her loving husband, Bernard Patrick Harty in 1976; her father Louis Hammer (1954); mother Minnie Hammer (1973); her sister, Edna Isley (2007); and brother Henry Hammer (1923). Until October 2011, she was a proud and active member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Ladies Auxiliary Br #21, with 35 year’s service – 15 years as their Sgt. At. Arms and many years with the Color Party. Mabel received the Nora Bishop Award from the Legion in 1988. The family extends special thanks to the kind and caring staff at Jackman Manor. A Celebration of Mabel’s Life will be held in the chapel of Valley View Funeral Home, 14660 – 72 Avenue, Surrey, BC, on Monday, May 13, at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion, Langley Br. #21, 20570 – 56 Avenue, Langley, B.C., or a charity of your choice.

RICHARDSON, Lloyd Emerson Sep 04, 1932 - Apr 22, 2013 Born in Vegreveille, Alberta, the son of Vivian and Ethyl Richardson, Lloyd was raised by his Uncle Dick and Aunt Leora Gorseline on a Dairy farm in Alberta. Joining the Air Force at 17, Dad rose to the rank of Flying Officer and loved flying jets. This was his favourite of many jobs that he would undertake. Meeting and marrying Elizabeth Letkeman (Betty) in 1954, Dad moved into his next careers as a banker, then a farmer and finally as an entrepreneur before retiring just a few years ago. Lloyd is survived by his wife Betty, his daughter Susan and his two sons Larry (wife Carole) and Keith (wife Christine); his grandchildren Tim (wife Gretchen), Robin (husband Mike), Rebecca (husband Brent), Allison, Lindsay and Evan; his siblings brothers Gord (wife Sunny), George (wife Keitha), James (wife Suzanne) and sister Lorraine as well as many nephews and nieces. He was predeceased by his brother Elwood many years ago. Dad will be missed for his humour and his advice. After a two year battle with kidney cancer, it is now time for Dad to join his best friend Eddie for a game of golf on the heavenly greens. The family wants to thank the staff at Maple Hill Hospice for all of their help and kindness during Dad’s final days with us.
