Langley 5923 200th Street


With the “Wet” Christmas season in the rearview mirror, winter made its first official appearance overnight Saturday. Langley residents woke up to a blanket of snow, after flakes started falling late in the evening Friday. By mid-morning Saturday, the snow had turned into heavy rain. At the lunch hour, the clouds disappeared and blue sky dominated, making for ideal sledding and walking weather for outdoor enthusiasts. The snow returned on Monday, but the amount varied by neighbourhood. Just before 2 p.m., heavy snowfall caused RCMP to issue a warning to drivers not to try taking the TransCanada Highway east of 232nd Street. Generally, eastern Langley and Aldergrove got more snow than the western neighbourhoods. “As you go farther east, it’s worse and worse,” said Terry Veer, the roads manager for Langley Township. The snowplow and sanding trucks for the Township have been busy since Friday night, and expect to be busy for at least a few more days, Veer said. “We’re staying in winter response mode,” Veer said. Most of the main roads in Langley Township were cleared, although for part of the Monday morning commute, plows would pass only to see their tracks filled in with snow again in Aldergrove. The snowfall and recent cold weather has

The Gateway of Hope shelter on the Langley Bypass had already announced several extreme weather shelter openings this winter. The shelter normally houses up to 30 people a night, in 22 beds for men and eight for women, but during cold, snow, or sleet, it can accommodate more. The regular shelter was already full before

the weather started to get cold. “It’s been pretty much at capacity for months,” said Major James Hagglund of the Salvation Army. An emergency opening that began last week will run until further notice. “It looks like this weather’s going to hold on for a couple of days,” Hagglund said. More snow is predicted for mid-week, but forecasts have been changing rapidly, and it’s unknown how much snow will actually fall between now and Friday.


Murder victim found in Bradner home

Ryan Saint Ange is Abbotsford’s first murder victim of the year, found dead last week in a home in the Bradner area. Saint Ange’s body was found early Saturday morning, and the Integrated Homicide Investigation (IHIT) Team is now heading up the case. A 911 call resulted in members of the

Abbotsford Police Department and paramedics being dispatched to a home in the 27700 block of 56th Avenue, where the body was found. The home is close to the 276th Street border between Langley and Abbotsford. Saint Ange’s body was found by a 20year-old friend just after midnight, said Sgt. Jennifer Pound of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT). “An autopsy will be scheduled for this week to confirm the cause of death,” Pound said. Little information has been released about the circumstances of Saint Ange’s death. However, online court records showed he had a conviction for drug trafficking. Saint Ange was charged in July of 2009 in traffick-

ing in a controlled substance and appeared in court in Abbotsford. In 2010, he received a conditional sentence for 12 months and a 10-year firearms ownership ban. Police are still at the home, investigating the scene. Right now, police are anxious for the public’s help. Anyone with information about this homicide is being asked to “come forward and speak with investigators,” Pound said. People can contact the IHIT tipline at 1-877551-IHIT(4448) or by email at ihittipline@, or to remain anonymous they can contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or

Kelly McGalliard had been feeling fine on Jan. 7, when he left his Walnut Grove home to go for a walk on the Houston Trail. Kelly, and his golden retriever Taylor, were headed for a quick hike around the park near the Fraser River. But Taylor seemed reluctant to head up a big hill. Kelly tugged the dog along, but near the top of the hill, he started to feel a pain in his chest. “I thought it would subside, but it didn’t,” Kelly said. The pain got worse and worse, and after walking a little farther, he had to stop.

A 16-year-old Langley boy died on the weekend after taking ecstasy, and his death is being investigated by the BC Coroner’s Service. The teenager was with others and reportedly took ecstasy along with other pharmaceutical drugs on the night of Saturday, Jan. 14. In the early morning hours Sunday, he collapsed and another person called 911. Paramedics took him to Langley Memorial Hospital but he could not be revived. Toxicology tests will be done immediately to show if ecstasy was a factor in his death, and if so, whether the ecstasy was contaminated by paramethoxy-methamphetamine (PMMA). PMMA in ecstasy has been linked to five deaths in B.C. in the past six months, including two in the last month, as well as a cluster of deaths in Alberta. Chief Coroner Lisa Lapointe said every ingestion of ecstasy is a risk, because the drug is concocted in an unregulated environment. The Coroner’s Service is working with police and health authorities, investigating the deaths.

Golden Ears

Tolls mulled for other bridges


If tolls are good for Langley, why not for others, mayors say.


by Matthew Claxton and Maria Rantanen

An application has been received by the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch, Victoria, BC, from Moxie’s Restaurants, Limited Partnership, operating Moxie’s Classic Grill at 8828 201 Street, Langley, BC, to allow for patron participation entertainment. Residents and owners of businesses located within a .8 kilometre (1/2 mile) radius of the proposed site may comment on this proposal by writing to:


To ensure the consideration of your views, your letter must be received on or before February 15th 2012. Your name(s) and address must be included. Please note that your comments may be made available to the applicant or local government officials where disclosure is necessary to administer the licensing process.



Mayors in Langley Township and Maple Ridge are open to the idea of tolling all the bridges in the Lower Mainland. Currently the Golden Ears Bridge is the only tolled bridge in the Lower Mainland, but soon tolls will be in place on the rebuilt Port Mann Bridge. Adding tolls to all bridges in the region might be one way of funding transit, said Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin. Daykin said he’d be willing to look at a toll on every bridge across the Lower Mainland to pay for transit, pointing out that tolls are not a new concept and many regions around North America and Europe have tolls on roads and bridges. “I agree that has some merit,” said Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese. With the Golden Ears Bridge seeing traffic volumes at the low end of what was expected, tolling on the new Port Mann will help balance out traffic, Froese believes. If they don’t have

to choose between a toll and an untolled bridge, more people will head to Golden Ears, Froese said. Tolling all the bridges would help pay for the connections, and possibly allow TransLink to collect more funding. Tolls could be lower at each individual bridge, but spread among more crossings, Froese said. Finding different ways to pay for transit is something Daykin would like to see happen during the next six to 12 months at TransLink’s mayors’ council. A vehicle levy would be another option that Daykin would ponder, but he said areas that have higher dens-

ity and more transit should have higher levies. For many people living in the Fraser Valley, where there is less transit service, one or two cars is usually a necessity. TransLink toll revenue on the Golden Ears Bridge to the end of September, 2011, was $24,986,000, $2.5 million below the budget estimates. The capital costs for the first nine months of 2011 were $34 million, operating costs were $8.8 million and debt servicing at up $9 million, creating a deficit of $26.8 million. The total deficit since the bridge opened in 2009 is $58.7 million.

Murder trial

Butorac back in court

An Aldergrove man will go on trial this year for a murder that took place five years ago. by Matthew Claxton

Convicted killer Davey Mato Butorac will be back in court next week, to set a date for his trial in the death of Aldergrove’s Margaret Redford. Butorac, convicted and sentenced to life for two second degree murders of Langley and Abbotsford women, faces trial this year for allegedly killing Redford in 2006. He will appear to fix a trial date on Jan. 19 at 2 p.m. in New Westminster Supreme Court. A preliminary hearing in the second degree murder case wrapped up in November.

Line-up for school spots Parents camp out for a limited number of kindergarten spots at R.C. Garnett Demonstration School.

.HD+ / H9>@D I;66&5*#&&8 N#;MC

by Heather Colpitts

Langley parents who camped outside R.C. Garnett Demonstration Elementary overnight Sunday won’t find out if their children have kindergarten spots until February. Principal Ute Goetzke worked with the school parent advisory committee when word spread that people were going to be camping out. She showed up Monday with hot coffee and went into school early to open the doors for the waiting parents so they could go inside. Registration began at 7 a.m. and by mid morning, numbers stood at 70 registered for the approximately 66 spots. Priority goes to families in the school’s catchment area who already have siblings in the school, noted Langley School District communications manager Sandy Wakeling. “The reality is for the catchment of R.C. Garnett, the demographics are skewed towards families with young kids,” he said. Garnett seems to be the only temporary camping site for parents of kindergarten age students in this school district where most schools are seeing student declines. “We’ve done a quick check around the district, and it doesn’t seem other schools experienced the same demand,” Wakeling said. Student who don’t get into Garnett will be directed to the next nearest elementary

Parents lined up outside R.C. Garnett Demonstration School in anticipation of the 7 a.m. opening of kindergarten registration. depending on where they live. Wakeling added that the opening of Lynn Fripps Elementary in Yorkson should help take some of the pressure off existing schools in Willoughby. Kindergarten registration for Fripps is being accepted at Willoughby Elementary. Fripps opens September 2012. The new school will provide 450 spaces for Grades 1-7 and 50 for kindergarten. But the Langley School District has already asked for another school in the area to handle the continuing population growth in the Willoughby slope area because the new school will be filled before it’s open. Last year Garnett had more than 530 students and was built for 300. The 21-classroom Fripps Elementary will cost $15 million. The school district and Langley Township have each contributed land so the school will be part of an overall park and recreation area. The school will be one of the Neighbourhood Learning Centres, a concept created by former B.C. premier Gordon Campbell. That will mean better integration of the school into the community. The school has playing fields and a park which the school and municipality will share.

Election ban past due date Some laws should be changed because they should never have been made. Others should be changed because they were made at a time when they made sense… but times change. The federal ban on reporting election results while polls remain open in some parts of the Canada is a fine example of the latter. Under current federal law governing federal general elections, it is illegal to report ballot counts, party standings, winners and losers… anything that could be construed as “election results” from eastern Canada until after the polls close in British Columbia. It makes sense, because the results of eastern voters’ choices could colour decisionmaking by western voters – knowing what the other guys did could be construed as an advantage for the west (or a disadvantage, for purists who feel voters should make their decisions based on personal choices, rather than responding to a pack mentality). It should simply be a question of fairness for all voters. But it’s not. The problem is timing… it’s about time zones. Polling times are already delayed in the east and moved up in the west, to try and synchronize voting periods. But Canada is a big country, and you can push that solution only so far. Consequently, there still is a lag between poll hours on opposite coasts. While “legitimate” news media in Canada are forced to adhere to the ban, international news sources, especially some radio stations in the United States that traditionally capitalized on the Canadian ban, were not bound by any such rules, and slipped election results to B.C. in time for voters here to take the information to the polling booths. And now the realities of Facebook, Twitter, other social media, and even virtually instantaneous email and the simplicity of texting have rendered the ban completely obsolete. This is one thing the “Harper Government” is doing right. – B.G.

Navigating Langley

Weather makes snow angels

Dear Editor, My parents from Vancouver Island were coming to our house late Friday night/early Saturday morning. With all the beautiful, fresh-fallen snow, the roads were pretty slippery, and on their way south up the hill on 200th Street, the car just would not find traction. That’s when the “angels” appeared and helped push them up the hill! My parents and I are so thankful to whoever they are. Carla Sieb, Walnut Grove

Aldergrove ignored – again

Dear Editor, I was thrilled on Saturday evening to arrive home from work to see that some kind soul had driven down our street with a grader blade and cleared at least one lane of the road so we could exit our homes and get to a major road that had been cleared and brined. However, Monday comes along with more snow, and once again, Aldergrove is the forgotten cousin. And much to my surprise, it wasn’t just the residential area, it was also 264th Street (Highway 13) and 16th Avenue that had been left to fend for themselves. However, you can imagine my lack of surprise, as I returned home from Langley along Fraser Highway to find that, once again Aldergrove is the west end of an eastbound mule. The further east you got from Langley, the worse the road conditions: no grading, no brining, nothing. Aldergrove has its own little micro

climate, and for whatever reason, the Township seems to either choose to ignore it, or is totally ignorant of it. I would also be very happy if the kind soul who on Saturday did a grader run of our street would do so again. D. Atkinson, Aldergrove

Clear snow for seniors

Dear Editor, My husband had an early morning first aid class to get to in Langley. He noticed something of concern, and I thought I would pass this on for all businesses, homes, and city workers throughout Langley. Although it is pretty much the only substantial snowfall we have had all year, and crept up on us fairly quickly, I would like everyone who has a walkway or driveway or who is near corner curbing to take a minute and think of the older folks in Langley who get around by scooter. They have a tremendously difficult time navigating in the snow, especially around curbs and corners where the snow from the street gets pushed and piled up by plows and traffic. My husband noticed quite a few seniors on his drive, actually forced out onto the main roads instead of on the sidewalks, trying to navigate corners and stay away from dangerous curb piles. Take a moment to clear your walkways and minimize curb drifts, and let’s have some safer walkways for the seniors of Langley. S. Georgeson, Langley

Walnut Grove

Dear Editor, As a resident of Walnut Grove who would have been directly affected by the designation of 208th as a truck route, I have to take exception to some of Ms. Paterson’s comments [Look at big picture on wider road, Jan. 17 Letters, Langley Advance]. The 208th Street corridor from 96th south to 64th Avenue is predominantly residential – most of it multi-family housing.

The corridor along 96th Avenue from 204th eastward to 208th Street is predominantly multi-family residential use. I am at a loss as to see the reasoning for turning this street into a truck route simply to collect $600,000 per year from TransLink. The residents along the corridor feel that being sold out to TransLink, while at the same time watching their property values plummet, is as much a reason


Tourism teamwork priceless

Dear Editor, Tourism Langley, as it currently is run, is doing a phenomenal job of promoting our community. It saddens me that Mr. Martin [Tourism not growing in Langley, Jan. 12 Letters, Langley Advance] feels it necessary to belittle them, but if you look at the general picture overall, Langley has benefited deeply from the dedicated work that Ms. Kulchiski and her staff and volunteers have provided to this community. Since they have been in our area, we have seen an upsurge in visitors to our gardens, and we see much more traffic to local businesses around us. The staff of Tourism Langley is constantly out there promoting Langley and all it has to offer. We should be thankful that we have such a team working to bring people to Langley to show all we have to offer – not just accommodations, farms, and gardens, but wineries, the zoo, an abundance of amazing retailers, the Fort, and so much more. Yes, many of us advertise privately, and that obviously supports our local papers, etc., but for an area to have a team such as Tourism Langley out there promoting everyone and everything in Langley is priceless.

to abort the plan as public safety is. Why is widening 208th Street to four lanes and allowing trucks to roar up and down it a step forward in public safety? Would it not make more sense to actively ensure that trucks are not using the street as a truck route? As for her comment, “If the road had been widened prior to the recommendation of turning it into a truck route, perhaps the public would have considered supporting the idea,” I can assure that the public most certainly would not have supported the idea. Perhaps Ms. Paterson could share with me and my fellow residents why she feels widening 208th Street and designating it as a truck route would be a good thing? Please, start talking about widening the bridge now, so that we can once again join forces to shut that idea down before a great deal of money is spent on studies, etc. Michelle Carduner, Langley For more letters to the editor visit...

Langley Animal Protection Society

Fighting nature and family’s love ensured Yoda’s survival by Roxanne Hooper


uch like the Star Wars’ Jedi master he’s named after, Yoda is a fighter. He’s smart, he’s cute, he’s humorous, and above all this 16month-old cat is a survivor, said Nancy Wrenshall, an Aldergrove woman who adopted Yoda from Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS) more than a year ago. “He was a pretty homely looking guy. In fact they staff called him Matty the Troll – which I refused to call him. He was so homely, he was cute. He looked like Yoda from Star Wars, so the name stuck. Besides – he was a fighter. He needed to be,” Wrenshall said, explaining how Yoda was in poor health from the moment he arrived at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter in October 2010. The two-week-old kitten was first dropped at the shelter one night, after closing, showing obvious symptoms of an upper respiratory infection – sneezing and eye discharge, said manager Sean Baker. Advetorial

“This kitten was in really rough shape. In fact, we didn’t know if he would even make it,” he said. Wrenshall, former warden at the Fraser Valley Institution and a board member with LAPS, stepped forward offering to care for Yoda. She was no stranger to the shelter or helping animals in distress at the time, having played an integral role in kenneling partnership program between a federal women’s prison in Abbotsford and LAPS prior to her retirement. Likewise, she’d also fostered a lot of LAPS cats, and she was knowledgeable about caring for animals with special care – and Yoda needed a lot of attention. In fact, the first few weeks it was a struggle to keep him alive. “There were more than a few nights I was not sure what I was going to find when I came down to check him. I always had to check a couple of times a night because I had to leave a hot water bottle with him, he’d get so cold. I’d be afraid I’d find him cold. He was so ill at one point and so badly dehydrated that he had to go back to the shelter and the vet’s so he

could receive IV fluids injected under his skin,” she said. Far from the sickly kitten of a year ago, Yoda now wakes up every day full of energy and ready for his next big adventure. While Yoda’s still very susceptible to respiratory infections, and Wrenshall can no longer foster LAPS cats due to the risk, she has no regrets about adopting Yoda. “It’s hard to explain what Yoda brings to our family. He is truly special. I think because he went to work with me, because he was

handled by so many people, he is a very social fellow,” she said. “He greets everyone who comes into our home with his wheezy sniffing. He makes my husband [Glen] and I laugh on a daily basis with his antics, whether it’s dangling upside down from my husband’s lap and trying to swat Maggie [our six-year-old English cocker spaniel] as she waddles past, or hiding behind the salt shaker on the kitchen counter where he knows he’s not allowed, waiting to see if you’re really going

to pick up the spray bottle to shoo him off. We know we may not have him for a long time, but we also know we will cherish and enjoy every minute we do have him,” Wrenshall said. “Yoda has become a beautiful cat. If truth be told, he really was the ugly duckling that turned into an amazing swan,” Baker said, excited to share Yoda’s experience as one of many Furry Tail Ending from LAPS. “While I love Yoda, there are too many cats like him and not enough people to take care of them. Not enough money for vet bills, formula, and all the extras that go into raising him. And I don’t like to think of what the alternative is for kittens like him if people like me are not around,” she said, encouraging people to support LAPS and the work the organization does to better the lives of local animals. For more information about other animals in need of permanent homes, people can visit the shelter at 26220 56th Ave., call 604-857-5055, or go online to • More online at

Dogs with Bobby Orr Knees Dr. Wayne Etherington - Clayton Animal Hospital 132 - 19653, Willowbrook Drive, Langley, BC V4N-5R7 604-530-3802

As any Canadian hockey fan can tell you, Bobby Orr had to curtail a brilliant NHL hockey career due to osteoarthritis of his knee joints resulting from a hard driving spectacular playing style that resulted in numerous knee injuries. There are many athletic dogs that suffer from similar knee injuries. I am referring to rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament or ACL. There are many ways to surgically repair this injury in dogs but the 3 most commonly used are the Fabellar Implant ( cost $1300 to $2500), the TTA ($2,000 to $3,500 ) and the TPLO ($4,000 to $5,000). The range in price is due to some surgeries taking longer than others due to cartilage repair that is needed in some and not in others, as well as over or undercharging by some veterinarians. The most commonly performed corrective procedure is still by far the Fabellar implant. Not only because it costs 30 to 50 percent less than the other 2 procedures, but also because no comparison studies performed to date indicate any long-term advantage to your pet of one procedure over the other. There are veterinarians who will tell you with great conviction that the procedure they are most comfortable doing (and possibly make the most money on) is better. They are misguided. The TPLO surgery is the most invasive of the 3 procedures as it entails cutting the entire circumference of the tibia about an inch below the stifle joint. You can imagine that if the fixation device that is used to stabilize the bone once the TPLO procedure is completed fails….the patient may be crippled for life. This rarely happens, but there is one Golden retriever in our area that had the procedure done at a referral clinic in Vancouver, and is unable to use the TPLO leg due to complications arising from the surgery. The TTA surgery is less invasive than the TPLO procedure. TTA technique results in a faster (2-4 weeks) return to full use of the limb than the Fabellar Implant repair technique (4-10 weeks). This convenience may be worth the extra $1,000 to $2,000 cost to some clients who are very busy with business and family concerns. I have only performed 5 TTA procedures all on 70 to 80 lb dogs under 6 years of age. They are doing well. I have performed 104 Fabellar Implant cruciate repair surgeries since February 2009. These dogs require anywhere from 1 to 10 days to start walking on the surgery leg. The 5 dogs on which I performed the TTA procedure since early November, all started walking on the operated leg within 4 days post surgery. Fifteen percent of the dogs that I have performed cruciate repair surgery on have ruptured the cruciate ligament of the opposite leg within a year of the first surgery. In conclusion I would like to emphasize that while Bobby Orr continued to reinjure his knees and was forced to retire early, the cruciate repair surgery prevents this scenario in your canine family members. However, if left unattended for an extended period of time canine cruciate ligament rupture can result in debilitating osteoarthritis. Make the best decision for your 4 legged buddy and get the corrective surgery performed.

City of Langley

Langley’s animal shelter is hoping to find homes for more cats. by Matthew Claxton

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

Wanna play?

Addy had the off-leash park to herself for a romp Friday lunchtime in Walnut Grove. While Addy would like more playmates and their owners at the park, her owner would like to see a shade tree. Langley Township has the off-leash dog park at 213th Street and 93rd Avenue. The City has one at 207th Street and 44th Avenue. Metro Vancouver has off-leash areas at Derby Reach Park and in a part of Aldergrove Lake Park. Dogs must be on leash at all other local parks and trails.

Maybe people were in a giving mood, but more Langley residents than ever before gave a home to a rescue cat in December. A total of 47 cats and kittens at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter in Aldergrove found new homes, said shelter manager Sean Baker. The Langley Animal Protection Society, which runs the shelter, saw an increase all year in the number of cats that passed through the kennels, while the number of lost or abandoned dogs actually dropped from 2010. Every year, the shelter takes in cats and dogs by the hundreds, some injured or abused. Finding a new home for every animal can be a challenge. Baker said that he hopes a partnership with a local pet food store can help increase that. Nothing is official yet, but the shelter is hoping to work with a store to increase its adoptions. If the partnership goes ahead, Baker is hopeful it would help find 20 to 25 more cats and kittens a home every month.

Willows take root in North Langley wetlands

Yorkson Watershed Stewardship Committee volunteers planted approximately 200 willow whips in North Langley.

For 10 dedicated people, January’s cool, rainy weather is just perfect for planting trees. The hardy volunteers from Yorkson Watershed Stewardship Committee came out to help restore a natural area in North Langley’s Derby Hills neighbourhood, alongside Yorkson Creek on Saturday, Jan. 7. More than 200 willow whips were planted in the wetland area. The cuttings are expected to quickly take root and thrive in the wet soil, providing many benefits, according to the committee. They’ll shade the stream, keeping it cool for the coho and chum salmon that live there, and their roots take up water and stabilize the soil along the creek banks, while their leaves and shoots provide food for the resident beavers. The volunteers don’t mind coming out each year to replace the trees the beavers use. Larger trees are beaver-caged (wrapped with wire) to protect them. One other small but important tree was planted: a Noble fir donated by a Township resident who bought it as a live Christmas tree. After Christmas, the tree was donated to the committee. Each year, the active group of volunteers plants trees, removes invasive plants, releases salmon fry, monitors spawning salmon returns, and more. More volunteers are always welcome in this group and others in Langley devoted to protecting watershes. To find out how to become involved, contact Lina Azeez, of LEPS (Langley Environmental Partners Society) at 604-

Gambling money

Grants sought by Langley non-profits following rule change

A new system means more non-profits are likely to get grants from the provincial government. by Matthew Claxton

Langley non-profits are considering a new source of funding after the provincial government announced it is widening the scope of its gaming grants. The cash, which comes from lotteries and casino revenues collected by Victoria, will now be available to more groups, including adult athletic associations, arts groups, and environmental associations. The Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) got its first gaming grant in 2011, when it received $10,000 for a program to work with young people. To get the grant, it had to apply as a youth service provider, not an environmental group, said LEPS executive director Nichole Marples. Now the group’s members are considering applying for more money this year, to cover a broader range of activities.

With more money in the grant fund this year, and environmental groups back in contention for funds, Marples was pleased. “The fact that some money is coming back is a good thing,” she said. Groups that work to rescue animals are mulling over applying for provincial gambling dollars, after the government announced changes to rules for gaming grants. “As an organization, we’ve only ever benefitted once from gaming,” said Sean Baker, manager of the Patti Dale Animal Shelter. The Langley Animal Protection Society runs the shelter and picks up stray and lost dogs in Langley. A few years ago, the shelter got $2,500 from a gaming grant, and while every bit helps, it isn’t a lot compared to LAPS annual budget. But Baker said LAPS will definitely have to look at whether it’s worthwhile to apply again. “We’re always looking at other ways we can fund ourselves,” Baker said. Maureen Binnie of the Critter Care Wildlife Centre is also interested in gaming grants, as it’s been about three years since the centre managed to get any.

With just four staff members and little to no government funding most years, Critter Care is heavily reliant on individual donors and a small number of major fundraisers every year to make ends meet. The group takes in wild animals that have been injured or separated from their mothers and tries to rehabilitate and return

them to the wild. They typically have an assortment of everything from otters to squirrels to bear cubs on their South Langley site. “It would go towards operating costs,” Binnie said of grant money. Langley Hospice was one of the local non-profits that saw reduced gaming money in 2010, when it was forced to switch

from a bingo licence affiliation to an annual grant. With a cap of $100,000 for grants, it lost 13 per cent of the amount of gaming money it got in 2009. The new system doesn’t look too bad for Hospice, said executive director Sandra Castle. “I don’t see anything changing for our group,” she said.


Deaths drop on roads around the region Fatal crashes are dramatically down in the Lower Mainland – traffic police happy. by Matthew Claxton

The Lower Mainland has seen a 38 per cent drop in deaths due to car crashes over one year, news that RCMP says is “fantastic.” In 2011, there were 60 fatalities on the roads of the region, down from 97 in 2010. Fatalities have been dropping for the last five to six years, but this is the most dramatic drop. “It’s fantastic news, 37 fewer deaths in one year alone, and it’s across four of the key areas we focus on – impaired driving, seatbelts, distracted driving, and speed,” said Supt. Norm Gaumont, head of Lower Mainland RCMP traffic services.

“We attribute the drop to a combination of legislative changes, growing public awareness of the new laws, and the continued enforcement of those laws,” he added. The preliminary numbers show a 53 per cent drop in alcohol related deaths (from 36 to 17), a 75 per cent decline in seatbelt related deaths (from 20 to five), a 47 per cent decline in speedrelated deaths (from 38 to 20), and a 42 per cent drop in distracted driving deaths (from 45 to 26). Gaumont said the declines have caught the attention of police forces in Indonesia and Kuwait, and Gaumont will be visiting Kuwait for the second time next week to help locals develop strategies of their own. “My message to both police forces is the same – you need three key things: good laws, visible and targeted enforcement, and to maximize enforcement efforts with media attention,” Gaumont said.

Busy bees backbone of Continental Cup The men and women working behind the scenes helped make this past weekend’s international curling event a success. by Troy Landreville

While Langley curlers didn’t compete in this past weekend’s World Financial Group Continental Cup, they were involved in a major way. Roughly half of the Langley Curling Club (LCC) membership group made up the volunteer force at the international competition, which started Thursday and wrapped up Sunday at the Langley Events Centre. Considering the number of volunteers numbered in the neighbourhood of 275, that was an impressive local group helping out throughout the four-day event. Nigel Easton has managed the LCC since 1999, and through the years, has seen his club host the 2007 B.C. men’s curling championship. This Continental Cup takes curling to a whole new level, he said. “It’s a major event,” said Easton, who’s serving as volunteering vice chair with the Continental Cup. “Sitting in the stands, we’ve got people coming to us saying ‘What a tremendous thing.’ It’s kudos for Langley, for the Township, for the facility, and for the Langley Curling Club.” As a curling fan, Easton was awed by the level of talent on the ice. “It’s amazing they can make these shots,” he said. “They make it look so easy to make those shots. It’s exciting, it really is. It’s a different game than when you see the world women’s or men’s. It’s a different format. There’s a lot of cross-fighting between Team World and Team North America, so it’s exciting to see.” Major players like the Canadian Curling Association, the World Curling Federation, and TSN have thrown bouquets the LEC’s way, according to Easton, This puts Langley in good stead if and when the community looks to host another

They included Aldergrove’s Bev Atchison, the director of lounges. Her duties included coordinating the 17-person lounge volunteer team. “I wanted to encourage all the people that I work with, who aren’t as familiar with curling, to get involved,” Atchison said. “And I wouldn’t have missed it. I watch all the curling on TV when I can and I attend the events when I can, so being able to be part of this is very important.” When the role of coordinator of lounges presented itself, Atchison jumped on the opportunity. Funny thing is, she didn’t know what the job entailed. “I didn’t have a clue,” she laughed. “But the experience has been close to excellent. A few frustrations because I haven’t worked with the Canadian Curling Association before so I didn’t know exactly all the parameters, and as any big event goes, there’s always changes that happen, but you’ve got to roll with the punches.” Rolling with the punches included long hours at the LEC. Set-up took about six or seven hours, and each day since then, Troy Landreville/Langley Advance Atchison arrived at the facility before 7 a.m. and headed Team World curlers, including Anna Sloan of Scotland, showed their support from the sidelines.

There were no miracles to be had for Team North America on the final day of the Continental Cup at the Langley Events Centre. by Cam Tucker

Vancouver Sun

Jeff Stoughton and Team North America had no room for error in the final skins match of the 2012 Continental Cup. One point and Team World – up 200-145 heading into the final event at Langley Events Centre – would claim the title. Stoughton needed an improbable 55 of 55 points in the final against Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud

High school girls basketball

Bobcats capture prestigious Top-Ten tourney title Brookswood defeated provincially top-ranked Riverside in the final of the Centennial Centaurs Top-Ten Shootout Tournament. by Troy Landreville

The Brookswood Bobcats served notice over the weekend that they are, arguably, the Triple A team to beat in B.C. senior girls basketball. The ’Cats took top

spot at the prestigious Centennial Centaurs TopTen Shootout, which started Thursday and ended Saturday at Centennial Secondary in Coquitlam. The Top-10 Shootout has the reputation of being B.C.’s premier senior girls Triple A basketball invitational tournament. “We always knew we could play with the best teams,” Brookswood coach Neil Brown said. “Now we know we can beat the best teams.” The Brookswood girls’ statement game came in the final, in which they edged the provin-

cially number-one-ranked Riverside Rapids by a 6863 count. The championship game was close in the first half. Brookswood went up by 14 points at one point of the second half. The Rapids from Port Coquitlam closed the scoring gap late and went ahead by one point with a couple of minutes to go. Then, ’Cats’ guard Jessie Brown hit a pair of key three-point shots late, to seal the win. The ’Cats opened the tournament Thursday afternoon with a 78-38 rout over Kitsilano.

They won twice on Friday, defeating Maple Ridge 84-64 in the late morning before downing Oak Bay 54-49 in the semifinal early evening. Two ’Cats were recognized for their final play over the weekend. Grade 12 guard Luca Schmidt was Most Valuable Player and Grade 11 guard Lindsay Wand was named a First Team All-Star. There were contributions all around, Brown said. “I thought Amber Kavanaugh, Tayla Jackson, and Kelsey Santa Juana played well,” he said. “Jessie Brown was hurt

and only played when we needed a sub or a big shot. One of our best players, Syd Williams, was injured and did not play all weekend. Luca [Schmidt] played a great tournament and showed she might be the best true point guard in the province. Lindsay Wand finally started to play at the level we all thought she could.” Thursday against Kitsilano, Kavanagh, a post player, scored 21 points. In the Maple Ridge game, Wand tallied 31. Against Oak Bay, Schmidt has 10 points and

in the final, Brown led the way with 16 points. At press time, the ’Cats were ranked fourth in the province behind Riverside, Oak Bay, and York House.

Junior B hockey

Girls soccer

Kodiaks host ’Pack Parent and Tot program kicking off

The Aldergrove Kodiaks will try to shake off the sting of their last game, as the local junior B hockey team hosts the North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Wednesday. Game time at Aldergrove Arena is 7:15 p.m. The Kodiaks, in top spot in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League’s Harold Brittain Conference with a 22-8-1-1 record, were rolling in January. That is, until they met up with the Richmond Sockeyes Jan. 11 at Aldergrove Arena. Aldergrove had reeled off one-goal victories over Mission, Ridge Meadows, and Delta leading up to the showdown between the PIJHL’s two division leaders. The win streak ended at three after the visiting Sockeyes trounced the Kodiaks 7-1. Richmond owns a league-best 28-6 record.

Coach: ‘We were in tough’

…continued from page A23 But, as was the case throughout the four-day tournament, just as Lawton and the North Americans began to swing momentum in their favour, the World systematically stomped out any hope. Wang, capitalizing on Lawton’s few but costly mistakes late in the game, won skins in the sixth and seventh ends – worth 18 points – before winning the final 12 points in a sudden-death draw to the button after neither skip could claim the eighth end. It put the World on the brink of victory. The final women’s skins game typified a disappointing overall competition for the North Americans. They fell behind after mixed doubles on Day 1 Thursday and continued to dig themselves a deeper hole as play wore on. “Coming into this thing we knew, all our players knew, that we were in tough,” said North American head coach Rick Lang.

Girls and boys U5 soccer is scheduled to start this weekend.

A program that’s the equivalent to Soccer 101 for parents and tots starts up this weekend. Langley United Youth Soccer Association has announced that its Parent and Tot introduction to soccer program begins this Sunday (Jan. 22). Only 80 spots are open to girls and boys aged U5 (born in 2007) and parents are urged to register online at or email “Parents, bring your cameras. This is so cute and it’s great to see the little ones get a wonderful fun introduction in what is often their first exposure to sports,” Langley United president Betty Boucas said. “Our highly qualified technical staff ensure the program is fun and enjoyable for the little ones. Keep them coming back for more.”

The objective of the U5 program is to provide young players (boys and girls) and parents with a pressure-free introduction to the game of soccer. Players will be exposed to soccer by playing simple, fun activities and games that require little or no practice, and minimal time commitment. The program is the

initial stage in the CSA’s (Canadian Soccer Association) Long Term Player Development model. The U5 program is conducted as a “Jamboree One with One.” This is a combination of two different formats that provide the best possible introduction to soccer for LUYSA’s youngest players.

“Jamboree” means groups are formed on a weekly basis depending on how many players attend a given session. “One with One” refers to the concept that each player will have a parent (or other adult) working with them on the field for some (but not all) of the games and activities. If parents are unable to participate, player assistants will step in to work with the child. The program includes one 45-minute session per week for six weeks. It runs Sundays at 5 p.m., starting Jan. 22 and ending Feb. 26 (the program length is weather dependent). A LUYSA T-shirt will be provided. The fees for the program are $65. Parents whose child is registered will receive an introductory email this week with more details and instructions.

ALSAGER, Lawrence Mar.18, 1914 - Jan.12, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Lawrence on the morning of Wednesday, January 12, 2012 at the age of 97 years. Lawrence was predeceased by his parents, sister Pauline and the love of his life, Doris. He is survived by his brother Robert (Marion) and nieces Karen (Wilf) and Virginia and nephew Andrew (Melanie) and will be sadly missed by his many friends and relatives. Lawrence was a Langley pioneer who lived and worked on the family farm the greater part of his life. In his younger days he suffered polio and his determination to recover and flourish saw him logging up and down the coast before turning to dairy farming when he married Doris in the 1950’s. He was an avid gardener, lover of nature and traveled extensively across North America with Doris. His passion for all things woodworking yielded many magnificent turned bowls, carved birds and small pieces of furniture. Lawrence was a gentle, thoughtful man who baked the best cookies and muffins, made friends easily and counted his blessings every day. The family wishes to invite you to a celebration of Lawrence’s life on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 at 1:30 pm at St. Andrew’s United Church, Fort Langley.

SUDOKU Fun By The Numbers

Like puzzles? Then you'll love Sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your Sudoku savvy to the test!

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! Jan. 17/12

Township council

No surprises in new-old council

Dear Editor, Welcome to paradise. I was not in the least surprised to receive the letter notifying me of farmland acquisition for the Mufford2 overpass. Neither was I surprised that those re-elected, alleging to support farmland in their campaign leaflets, have once again pulled the wool over the voters’ eyes. There is no surprise that further public consultation has been terminated, and we have again entered the dark ages. The new mayor, who

has lived in Langley for 32 years, before the election “did not respond with ‘Yes,’ ‘No,’ or ‘Don’t know’” to eight of the Langley Advance’s 20 “Election Questions” prior to the civic elections. Question 20 was, “Do you support the current Mufford Overpass design?” The mayor, having three years to think about it, and vacant of any answer before the election, came to a speedy decision after the election, and without any public input. There should be no sur-

Pensioner covets pay hike

Dear Editor, I am an 81-year-old pensioner, receiving $1195.41 OAP a month (that includes GIS in my case, which is reduced if I earn more that I “deserve” with my job today). Hey! I had a $9.06 “hike” since October! I just noticed! I am trying to figure out how I feel, reading the news about Township council’s pay hike [Rich raises poorly understood, Dec. 20, Langley Advance]. Am I surprised? No. Am I disgusted? Somewhat. Am I saddened? Yes. I am very sad for all those pensioners who are not able to work for additional income, or do not have family support to add to this insulting pay-out for the years of productive living. I am reminded again how fortunate I am, that I am in good health, have an ability to earn, and am able to work and supplement my lousy pension income. Like many women of my generation, I was a stay-at-home mother, raising and supervising my three children while assisting my husband in his work. There is no recompense for this today for a single, self-supporting senior female. $1195.41 times 12 months equals $14,344.92, if my ancient multiplication skills are still valid. It takes talent and then some, to manage on that, eh? Name withheld, Langley

prise that a council, through incompetence costing the taxpayer $8.83 million on the Langley Events Centre and passed a five per cent for five years tax increase, received another massive pay increase. It is a typical political ploy to do the ugly stuff immediately after an election, because all is forgotten by the end of the term. To beat all, I remember only a short while ago that this council could find no other way to balance the budget but to suggest closing the kids’ pool or turf the hanging baskets in Aldergrove. Question 6 was, “Would you cut municipal services rather than raise taxes?” The question should have read, “Would you revoke massive 112 per cent pay increases rather than increase taxes or close the kids’ pool?” Perhaps the problem is not the kids’ swimming pool, but a council that has just been delivered a brand new cheque book and a pen with a three-year supply of invisible ink. Save this letter for three years. Dean Holcombe, Langley For more letters to the editor visit...
