Fort Langley’s Bill Bunt is not happy with the 20.6 per cent bump B.C. Assessment gave his condo since last year.

Bill Bunt would prefer to be average right now. The Fort Langley condo owner is facing a staggering 20.6 per cent increase in the assessed value of his home since last year. “That’s crazy,” Bunt said. The condo’s assessed value of $327,000 is especially startling because the average condo in the Township this year increased barely more than one per cent. Bunt moved in to the condos on Billy Brown Road two years ago, just after they were built. He paid $290,000, but in the first year he lived there his unit was assessed at just $262,000. He wasn’t surprised when it went up to $271,000 in 2011. But this year’s jump was a shock. For the owners of the condos, it means a steep increase in property taxes this year.

Taxes are calculated based on the average assessed value across a municipality. If a house or condo goes down in assessed value, the homeowner might see a drop in taxes even if there is a tax increase. But if the assessed value goes up higher than average, it means a bigger tax bill. While Bunt can take the hit, he wonders why the assessed value went up so fast. He believes it may be because his building only had one or two condos sold since it opened. “The majority of people are on the elderly side,” he said of his condo, which is for those aged 45 and up. Most of them are there for the long term. There were only a few sales, so the assessment may have been calculated based on the prices for one or two units. He also noted that there is only one block of condos in the Fort. There aren’t any other condo complexes for the B.C. Assessment office to compare with Bunt’s building. Bunt isn’t sure if he will challenge the assessment and seek a lower value.

Assessments of homes, condos, and other properties are arriving in mailboxes around the province this month. The average increase in Langley was small, and in

Langley City some categories saw an average decline. However, individual neighbourhoods in Langley have varied widely from the averages in the past.

Train claims life A young man died after being hit by a train early Friday morning. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley RCMP are investigating the death of a man who was hit and killed by CN train Friday near 216th Street and 96th Avenue. CN crews called the police at about 6:45 a.m. after hitting the man, who was apparently lying down on the tracks. Police found the remains of a

man in his early 20s. His identity has not yet been released. “We have nothing to suggest foul play of any type,” said Insp. Amrik Virk of the Langley RCMP. The area where the man was killed is relatively quiet and rural, and there were no paths immediately nearby. Because the train stopped, parts of 96th Avenue and 216th Street were closed and blocked for several hours while the investigation began, and the train was moved. Langley Mounties are working on investigating the young man’s death with CN Police.

Four lanes may wait for five years

208th Street won’t get wider this year – possibly not for five years. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The widening of 208th Street to four lanes won’t be coming in 2012. “That one is not going to happen this year,” said Township transportation engineer Paul Cordeiro. The Township had talked about starting construction as early as this year, after years of increasing traffic pressures caused by development in Willoughby. However, because the Township council refused to designate the road a truck route, Langley can’t get TransLink cash for upgrades. TransLink won’t include the road in the regional Major Road Network (MRN), a prerequisite for funding. That has essentially moved the project to the back burner. “It definitely won’t be in this year’s [budget],” Cordeiro said. “We’re hoping to put in into the five-year plan.” Mayor Jack Froese said the widening of 208th hasn’t been officially delayed, but the lack of TransLink money means the Township will have to rely on development to get the road widened. “It’s either going to be the developers that will pay for it, or the taxpayers,” Froese said. In the spring of 2010, residents in Willoughby were up in arms about plans to turn 208th Street into a truck route. Township hall was flooded with thousands of letters against the project, and angry residents turned out en masse in opposition. The safety of children and adult pedestrians, as well as noise, were key concerns.

Council agreed, and voted to scrap the Worse is the cost of land acquisition, plan.

The Langley RCMP are looking for a man who tried to snatch a child from Douglas Park, right behind the boy’s father on Monday morning. At about 9 a.m., the father and his two-year-old son were in the playground area of the park, in the 20600 block of Douglas Crescent, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokes-

person for the local RCMP. The father turned away to put down the son’s helmet and bike, and turned back to find an unknown man holding the boy. The father yelled loudly, and the man dropped the boy and ran, Marks said. The father chased the suspect out of the park, and the man entered a dark green van or SUV with tinted rear windows and drove off south on 206th Street.

The suspect is described as possibly Indo-Canadian or Hispanic, his build average to slightly husky, standing 5’9” to 5’11”, with dark brown hair, wearing a white hat and a dark coloured shirt. Langley’s Serious Crime section is investigating the incident. Anyone with information that might help the investigators should call the RCMP at 604-5323200.

The end of the year saw a big spike in the number of homes that started construction in Langley Township. Starting in September, the number of housing starts – the number of units that began construction – shot up sharply. A few condo projects started in that month, and they represent about half of all the home starts in the Township in the last year, said Ramin Seifi, the Township’s development manager. Quadra Homes’ project in the Yorkson area on 208th Street was a big piece of that, as well as Bedford Landing’s second stage of condos in Fort Langley. In October 2011, the Township saw construction start on 235 condo

A townhouse project in Willoughby, where most of Langley’s new construction is centred. units, compared to 19 single-family homes, and 33 units of townhouses. Between January and October (the last month for which statistics are available) the difference in housing types was also noticeable. The Township saw 541 condos start construction, 198 houses, and 309 townhouses. That represents a 222 per cent increase in the number of condo units being built compared to the same time period in 2010. The number of single family houses was up just 1.5 per cent, while the number of townhouse starts

actually dipped by 8.8 per cent. Multi-family home construction outpaces single-family home building in the Township, a complete reverse of the situation just a few years ago. Most of the construction is centred in the Willoughby area, particularly Yorkson, the area near 208th Street and roughly north of 80th Avenue. The area is centred around the construction site for the future Lynn Fripps Elementary and the current Willoughby Elementary. Local schools have been close to bursting as a result of rapid development.

A blaring smoke alarm likely saved the lives of three Fernridge residents just after midnight Thursday, Langley Township firefighters say. A fire gutted a mobile home in a park in the 20100 block of 24th Avenue, but the elderly man and woman, and their adult son, all got out safely. The father woke first, and thought he saw flashing red lights, said assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson. A second later, the smoke alarm went off, and he realized the lights were flames. He woke up the others and they escaped unharmed. The fire was called in

Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

Firefighters pored over the gutted Fernridge mobile home, searching for the cause of the Thursday morning blaze. just four minutes after midnight, but firefighters were unable to stop it from destroying the entire mobile home. The building, surrounded by a small fence, bushes, and bird baths, was utterly destroyed. Neighbour Mary Ellen Huseon said the family were friendly and well liked in the park, and were longtime residents. “My husband just built a back porch for them,” she said.

The couple is in their 80s, and the husband is a veteran, Huseon said. The family told the firefighters that they are insured, and they are staying at a local hotel with help from the disaster assistance program. The cause of the fire isn’t known for sure yet. Investigators were still searching through the wreckage on Thursday morning looking for clues. Ferguson said arson is not suspected.

Court

O’Brien case outcome delayed the judge’s decision next week. Parent remains free on bail. On the morning of March 13, 2008, O’Brien was struck by a pickup truck driven by Parent. Parent’s truck had just struck and run the truck with O’Brien and two of his friends off the road, while the three young men were on their way to the airport to fly to a family vacation. Parent’s defense argued that the first incident was an accident, that Parent had only returned to check on the three men’s condition, and that he had panicked when he thought they were about to attack his large F350 truck. O’Brien was hit and killed as Parent sped off. Crown lawyer Donna Ballyk instead painted a picture of Parent as a man intent on scaring the three young men by swerving past them as they stood on the side of the road.

Langley City firefighters say that caution could have prevented a balcony fire Monday morning. The fire, on a second-storey balcony in the 5600 block of 200th Street, was quickly doused and caused minimal damage. But Capt. Dave Sanders, the fire prevention officer, said it offers a valuable lesson. The fire broke out at about 9:30 a.m. in a plastic pot filled with dry potting soil. A cigarette had been stubbed out in the pot.

Firefighters scaled a ladder to get onto the balcony, doused the visible blaze, and used a thermal imaging camera to make sure the fire hadn’t got into the apartment building’s walls. Sanders said the fire started because the “potting soil” was largely dry peat moss. Peat is not only used as potting soil, it’s burned in many countries instead of firewood. “It will smolder, and it will eventually ignite,” Sanders said. The City’s fire crews get calls like this on a surprisingly regular basis, Sanders said. People smoking outside can’t use plant pots for ash trays, Sanders said, as there’s too much danger of starting a fire in what looks like “soil.” They should use a proper ash tray, he said.

Clearing clogs not a good plan Put enough of anything down a drain – hair, grease, garbage – and it will clog. Then you’ve got to get out the caustic chemicals, or call for professional help. When it comes to roads, the system is just as predictable. Put more housing on a street, you get more traffic. Put enough people in a neighbourhood, you get gridlock. Unfortunately, clearing up a clogged road takes more than a simple bottle of goop. There are a few things we can do to keep traffic moving. We can encourage people to walk more – in communities that have few sidewalks and little within walking distance. We can encourage cycling – on roads with no shoulders and speeding drivers. We can opt for transit – don’t hold your breath waiting for the next bus, you’ll pass out. Unfortunately, when it comes to major roads like 208th Street, eventually we just need to widen them. When the Langley Township council voted to keep 208th Street from becoming a truck route, it was the right call. Willoughby, even growing and densifying, is still a residential neighbourhood. But it also cut off TransLink funding that would have sped up the process of widening. It’s obvious that 208th Street is in bad shape. Parts of it have been widened by developers, but lanes haven’t been painted. Bike lanes that were funded years ago don’t exist. Trucks heading to and from construction sites, along with heavy local and commuter traffic, helped make it one of the most complained about roads in the Township last year when it comes to potholes and rough pavement. Yet in 2011, the Township’s road manager said major upgrades were being delayed until the widening took place. With that widening plan a receding target, residents of Willoughby need to hear from the Township, from staff and council. First, they need to hear what the current plans are for widening the road. Will the road be widened in pieces, starting with the section between 80th and 86th Avenues? They need to hear about plans for construction and how that will impact local traffic. They need to hear about the final form of the road. Ideally, it will include bike lanes, sidewalks, and bus stops as well as more lanes for cars, along its whole length. Residents in Willoughby, and throughout the Township, also need to hear about the cost. Not the cost of building the road, which is relatively easy to calculate, but the costs in congestion, crashes, and damaged shocks that more delays will cause. – M.C.

Environment? What’s that? Of course, a goal of streamlining the federal government’s environmental review process for oil and other seems quite laudable, on its slick surface, at least.

Education

Dear Editor, Who is responsible for three new schools in Langley being built? I presume it is mainly MLA Rich Coleman along with Superintendent Cheryle

Beaumont whom we are to thank. And there is probably a nod to land developers on the [Willoughby] slope, too. But just how do you get three new schools built

BC Hydro

Smart meters cheaper

Dear Editor, It is obvious many people do not really understand BC Hydro Smart Meter Program and the recent changes to property values under the BC Assessment Authority. Smart meters are expensive to install, but over time will pay for themselves and offer savings to BC Hydro customers. There will be no more need for meter readers, accounting and billing will all be automatic, and BC Hydro will be able identify the location of power problems in minutes. The radiation level is very small, compared to radiation from the earth’s magnetic field and such things as cellphones. Customers may only get small doses of radiation if they stand close to the meters for extended periods of time. One of the big advantages of smart meters is that they will permit BC Hydro to identify meters that have been bypassed for illegal drug-growing operations. They will be able to take immediate action and stop the theft of power. It will also allow BC Hydro to identify a problem in an owner’s system that is wasting power. As for property assessments, the assessment authority reassesses all property each year, based on the values of similar properties in the previous year. The new assessed value may be lower, the same, or higher. Property tax is based on how much money the municipality needs for its next year’s operation and the set “mill rate” to provide that revenue. As a result, one may experience lower, the same, or higher taxes with a higher assessed value… or even higher with a lower assessed value. I worked on the Property Assessment Appeal Board for four years, and the majority of people appealed their assessments because they were too low. They wanted higher assessments, because they wanted to sell their properties. Eric J. Bysouth, Langley

when there is a policy in place which states that, in order to build a new school, the other schools in the district must be at capacity? Well, you close lots of schools in the poorer parts of the district, and force the remaining schools into an artificially overcrowded state. So congratulations on the building of three new schools, but who pays for the operating costs? Langley School District is responsible for that, not the provincial government. But Langley School District has a massive $13.5 million debt that has to be repaid to the government. It is interesting to note that when Cheryle Beaumont was hired as superintendent in 2006, Langley School District had a surplus of $5.4 million. And what about the already existing schools in Langley that are badly in need of major repairs, now that the money will be needed to operate new schools? Once again, how is Langley School District going to pay for the operation of three new schools when it couldn’t cover the costs of the ones already in place? I think it is time for a new superintendent and new MLA for Langley. L. Fletcher, Langley

Hotel tax used to draw in tourists

Dear Editor, I am a hotelier in Langley and am sup-

porting the two per cent hotel tax, as it is a vehicle that helps fund marketing programs and activities to promote Langley to tourists and helps fill hotel rooms. It helps to create more awareness of our Fort Langley National Historic Park, golf courses, wineries, attractions, and shopping. Since the introduction of the tax three years ago, and the formation of Tourism Langley, I have found that Langley’s marketing activities have become more focused, strategic, and results-oriented. The tourism tax helps fund activities of Tourism Langley, which now professionally directs marketing and promotional programs for Langley, and as well operates the tourist information centres. I am surprised that the previous writer [Useless hotel tax must be defeated, Jan. 5 Letters, Langley Advance] did not find the two per cent tax beneficial, nor got the information about Tourism Langley, as I attended Tourism Langley’s Annual General Meeting where all information was made available to the public. We need this good work being done by Tourism Langley to continue, so we can attract more tourists to Langley. I am optimistic that this tax will be passed, as it has shown great benefits to tourism-related businesses like mine.

Dear Editor, I think Wally Martin is wrong [Useless hotel tax must be defeated, Jan. 5 Letters, Langley Advance] and I am actually angry. Contrary to his opinion, there are plenty of reasons people come to our community that are directly or indirectly affected by Tourism Langley. People come to Langley to shop, to eat, to explore the wineries, to visit farms, to golf, to use the hockey rinks, curling clubs, the LEC, to take cooking classes, to participate in our community events, sports activities, and for general sightseeing. They do not just come here to get married, have pictures taken, and spend the night in his B&B. I understand that people stay in our community and use the hotels, but without the rest of the infrastructure and other businesses to provide meals and entertainment, there would be no reason for them to come here at all. Without the hotel tax, paid by users, the hotels would have to spend even more money on marketing/advertising specific properties and invest more time into building packages etc. to draw those guests into the community. The hotels are not and cannot be the only consideration here, and they all need to stop acting like it’s their money Tourism Langley is using. Angie Quaale, Langley

Seniors

Winter lectures all about money

Experts donate their time and Langley Lodge hosts so seniors an learn about health and wellness issues. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Seniors are invited to a lecture series that will focus on helping them protect their money. Unfortunately there are many people who work to scam seniors out of their money, so Langley Lodge staff have organized a lecture series to arm seniors with information. The Winter Public Education Series continues educational lectures started by the non-profit seniors complex care facility. The winter series runs January to April. “The demand for local, accessible and free education on seniors health and wellness issues has been steady since we started the program in 2010,” said Debra Hauptman, executive director of Langley Lodge. “We are delighted to host the series for Langley residents as a community service.” Education about aging is important for Langley residents who, along with the general population, are aging and comprise a growing seniors demographic in the region. Guest speakers are experts and sessions are typically 60-90 minutes duration. Light refreshments are served, and most speakers provide printed information to take home. The lectures are on the third Tuesday of the month. On Jan. 17 a financial planning advisor will speak on the subject of estate planning and general tax matters pertaining to estates and planned giving. In February, the Public Trustee’s Office will have information on financial and personal care management for adults. In March, a tax accountant will provide information on seniors’ tax credits and income/pension splitting, and in April, the BC Elder Advocacy group will present a module on fraud schemes and how to protect yourself from common scams targeting seniors. All guest speakers are donating their time, to allow Langley Lodge to host the series for free to the general public, Hauptman noted. All seniors have to to do take part is to register in advance so the lodge knows how many people are attending. The lectures start at 7 p.m. at the lodge, 5451 204th St. To register contact social worker Dayna Driscoll at 604-532-4241 or ddriscoll@langleylodge.org. People can also find out more at www.langleylodge. org/monthly-activities-calendar/special-events/.

Rivermen battle tooth-and-nail with Bulldogs Netminder Jim Kruger helped his team salvage a point in Port Alberni. by Brandon Astle and Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

There was no doubt who shone brightest Saturday night at Weyerhaeuser Arena in Port Alberni. Langley Rivermen goaltender Jim Kruger stopped 54 of 57 shots directed his way in his team’s 3-2 double overtime loss to the host Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Kruger’s superlative performance not only earned him first star of the game honours, it also helped the Rivermen earn a single point against their B.C. Hockey League Coastal Conference rivals. Even with the point, the Rivermen, who are midway through a lengthy six-game road

trip, continue to struggle. They have two regulation wins to show for their past 10 games and occupy seventh place in the eight-team Coastal Conference with a 13-22-1-2 record. The Bulldogs remain last in the conference, at 13-20-2-0. The Rivermen and Bulldogs have had great games against each other all year long. Saturday proved to be much the same. In their last meeting Dec. 11, the game ended in a 4-4 tie. This time around, the Bulldogs made sure they would grab the extra point by finding the net 1:18 into three-on-three, double OT play. The first period was tight defensively, as the two teams went scoreless, but there were plenty of shots fired, especially from the Alberni Valley side as Kruger faced 17 pucks. The lone tally of the second period came from Tryg Strand in the late stages of the frame to put the ’Dogs up 1-0.

Langley Advance files

Langley Rivermen goaltender Jim Kruger made 54 saves in his team’s 3-2, double overtime loss to the host Alberni Valley Bulldogs Saturday night. Mike Tebbutt put the Rivermen on the board at the 6:20 mark of the third period.

The tie did not last very long as Tyler Berkholtz put the home team on top 2-1 with less than

10 minutes to play. Langley’s Thomas Nitsche then scored the biggest goal of his BCHL career with under two minutes to go in regulation, to send the contest into overtime. The first overtime session solved nothing, so the teams once again went into threeon-three action for the second straight game. Daniel Delbianco was the hero for Alberni Valley early into the double overtime. For a second straight game, Kruger faced more than 50 shots. Mario Puskarich and Darnell Dyck picked up two assists each for the Rivermen in a losing effort. Nanaimo Clippers 6, Rivermen 2 Friday night in Nanaimo, the Rivermen led the Clippers 21 after 40 minutes before the home team exploded for five third-period goals to win by a wide margin.

First-place Kodiaks come through in the clutch Aldergrove’s junior squad won a pair of tight games to open January, and remains in top spot in the Harold Brittain Conference.

by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

After Friday’s dramatics, you might want to call Aldergrove Kodiaks’ forward Matthew Luongo “Mr. Clutch.” The Pacific International Junior Hockey League game between the Kodiaks and host Ridge Meadows Flames at Planet Ice Maple Ridge appeared destined to go into overtime, with the teams tied 1-1 and time winding down. Luongo stuck a dagger into the Flames by scoring the game winner with eight seconds remaining in regulation time. The 20-year-old veteran wrapped the puck in from

behind the net, beating Flames’ goalie Jordan Hospes, who was spectacular in stopping 40 shots on the night. “We nearly doubled them in shots but their goalie kept them in it,” Kodiaks associate coach Rick Harkins said. “A lot of times, when the game goes into overtime, that’s when a goalie can steal it for you. It was good to finally get one past him.” Missing from the Kodiaks’ lineup was forward Brandon Potomak (on loan to the Western Hockey League’s Moose Jaw Warriors), defenceman Ryan Procyshyn (nursing an injury), and forward Sam Ramsay (who was with the B.C. Hockey League’s Powell River

Kings). cushion on second-place The Flames carried a 1-0 Abbotsford. lead into the first intermission, Kodiaks 4, Mission thanks to Corey Dubbeldam’s Icebreakers 3 powerplay goal.

The teams ended up tied in the shots-on-goal department, with 41 apiece. Harkins said the Kodiaks showed a little rust in their first game since Dec. 23. “It was our first game after the break, and there was a lot of turkey and stuffing flying around,” Harkins said. “You’re not going to win all the games by blowouts, and when you’re in first place [in your conference], all the teams get up for you.” ••• Aldergrove plays tonight (Tuesday) against the Delta Ice Hawks at the Ladner Leisure Centre. The Kodiaks return home Wednesday, when they host the league-leading Richmond Sockeyes at Aldergrove Arena. Game time is 7:15 p.m. The Sockeyes have a PIJHLbest 26-5 record so far this season.

Clippers score five in third to down ’Men of his team’s five goals in the third frame. Overall the Clippers outshot the Rivermen 56-28 in the contest. If not for Kruger’s goaltending, the game could have gotten out of hand. Powell River Kings 7, Rivermen 0 The Rivermen did not ring in the new year like they would have hoped. The host Powell River Kings scored early and often en route to a 7-0 victory Thursday night at Hap Parker Arena. This marks the third time the Kings have shut out the Rivermen at the Hap this season. The first period was the lowest scoring of the three as Cohen Adair scored the eventual game winner a little more than four minutes into the game. The Kings then proceeded to blow the contest open with four

…continued from page A17 The game started off great for the Rivermen as Puskarich opened the game’s scoring. The team leader in goals with 20 was able to snap a shot top corner to give the Rivermen the early 1-0 lead in the first frame. After Nanaimo’s Trevor Fitzgerald tied the game 1-1 about three minutes later, Tebbutt got the Rivermen’s lead back as he smacked in a loose puck in what the Clippers thought was a high stick, but the goal stood. Kruger held the fort, facing 16 shots in the second period, but in the third period, things fell apart for Langley. The Clippers tallied five straight goals to close out the game while firing 22 pucks towards Langley’s net in the final period. Nanaimo’s Colton Cyr scored two

straight goals to make it 5-0 after 40 minutes. Jon Jutzi and Teegan Waugh capped off the scoring in the final frame to seal a very decisive win for the home team. Powell River scored by committee as they had seven different goal getters on the night and netminder Jamie Phillips was solid all game long with 19 saves to earn the shutout. Following the Kings’ fourth goal of the night, scored at the 12:14 mark of the middle frame, Rivermen netminder James Barr was pulled in favour of Kruger. Barr was charged with the loss. Next up for the Rivermen is an Interior road trip beginning Friday in Penticton, to face the first place Vees, who are on a 21-game winning streak.

and coaching staff in all divisions within the Fraser Valley Soccer League. The merger follows the recent announcement that Langley FC will now be offering a youth boys soccer program. “We are very pleased to have the Langley United FC join with us, as it adds more breadth and depth to the options we offer to our club members” commented Regan Mostat, VP, Soccer Operations for Langley FC. Mostat added, “Like our female players, male players now have life-long options to play soccer at all ages and levels in one successful soccer club where they will receive a complete and high quality soccer experience.” LUFC president George Thrower said joining with the LFC will allow players to move seamlessly from youth to men’s soccer, all within the same club. “We are excited about the opportunities it presents players within our community,” Thrower added. The addition of the LUFC men’s teams helps LFC complete its strategic goal of “offering a high quality, life-long soccer experience for all female and male players of all ages and abilities.” LFC is the only soccer club in Langley to follow the Canadian Soccer Association club charter of offering life-long soccer opportunities for both females and males, according to the association. LFC programs include: girls and boys youth recreational and competitive programs, women’s and men’s teams, and the new BC Soccer Premier League franchise attained last year in partnership with the Abbotsford soccer club, Magnuson Ford Mariners FC. All Langley FCs programs are based on the Canadian Soccer Association’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD) program, and includes academy training, spring and summer programs, premier league options, provincial team training pathways, and university and national training centre opportunities and pathways.

http:/ www.langleyadvance.com

Please include the name of the person you’re remembering and your mailing address. www.bccancerfoundation.com/InMemory

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

Fun By The Numbers

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
