Early spring sunshine warmed worshipers who took part in Stations of the Cross.

Hundreds gathered outside Fort Langley Community Hall on Good Friday morning, March 29 to take part in a unique outdoor service. Through meditations, prayer, song, and the carrying of a large wooden cross to stations positioned around downtown Fort Langley, they reflected upon Jesus Christ’s final journey to the cross. Each station retraces the suffering and sacrifices Jesus endured on the day of his death. The annual Stations of the Cross outdoor service is held each year on Good Friday, regardless of the weather. The event is led by the

Wagner Hills adds women’s facility A drug rehabilitation program is planning a big opening for its new building.

by Matthew Claxton

A major donation will give Wagner Hills Ministries the chance to finish paying for its newest facility to help women escaping addiction. The Langley-based ministry has based in Glen Valley for more than 30 years, where its Christian recovery centre worked with men. In 2008, the House of Hope opened on the site of a former youth facility nestled near the Canada-U.S. border on 216th Street, adjacent to Campbell Valley Regional Park. Wagner Hills director Hemut Boehm recalled how in the early days of the House of Hope, the aging buildings on the site had been vacant for at least five years. The roofs were leaking, and a large cinderblock building that had once house a pool still had the remnants of a film studio built into it. They also began with several neighbours worried about having a treatment centre in their midst. Now the ministry is months away from opening its new Campbell Valley House of Hope facility, adding up to 10 new spaces to its treatment programs, and it has made strides to bringing the neighbours on side. As Boehm walks through the busy interior of the House of Hope, where volunteers and paid workers are doing plumbing and electrical work in late March, he said things are going at the pace of donations. Right now, the group is hoping to raise money for a matching donation of up to $100,000, Boehm said. If that comes in, it will pay off the House of Hope entirely. “We’ve matched $20,000 so far,” Boehm said. When finished, it will raise the capacity of the House of Hope to 25 residents. Wagner Hills isn’t a halfway

house or prison treatment centre – residents are there because they have asked to get help. It’s faith based and fairly rigorous, with a successful resident staying a full year, living on the site, working on the farm, and living a structured existence far different from what they experienced before. “I plan on sticking it out,” said Leah Schneider, who has been at the facility for three months. Originally from Medicine Hat, it’s her first attempt at getting clean. A family member who had taken part in the men’s program referred her to the House of Hope. For Natasha Alexis, originally from Prince George, it was the latest in a series of attempts to turn her life around. “I would stay clean for a short period of time,” she said of her

other visits to rehab facilities. “I came here and everything changed.” She came to the House of Hope after spending time in Surrey. She had graduated from a different program there, was living in the area, and needed to get back into treatment. She heard about the program coincidentally, from someone who knew of it. She was waiting to get into a different program, but there was no waiting list at the House of Hope, and she jumped in six months ago. While the Wagner Hills program doesn’t have a waiting list, it has a rigorous program that could scare off some applicants. “We’re not into half measures,” said Boehm. The program is about a complete change. The daily routine, said Schneider, is morning Bible devotions, breakfast, three hours of classes, lunch, work in the greenhouses in the afternoon, and then dinner and chores. There’s a regular chore rotation among the up to 14 women who

call the community home. The completion of the new building should allow for more programs, with new classrooms, counselling offices, and a large new kitchen and communal dining area. Getting everything finished are a number of volunteers, including electrician Ken Johnson, who came with his wife from Alberta to work on the building for free. His wife’s nephew went through treatment at the Wagner Hills men’s facility. “His life was just turned around, totally transformed and changed,” Johnson said. If the relationship with the neighbours hasn’t been totally transformed, it’s been much improved from five years ago. Gail Hills is a neighbour who now volunteers at the centre. Several of the neighbours visited on Boxing Day for an open house, and there’s less fear and no rumours about the facility, Hills said. On Saturday, May 11, at 4 p.m., the ministry has scheduled a groundbreaking and is inviting neighbours and members of the community to see the new building opened.

Let him speak

Voltaire’s oft-quoted defence of free speech, “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it,” is as relevant today as it ever was. But its relevancy always depends on the honesty of the speaker. Langley MP Mark Warawa rose in the House of Commons last week to ask the speaker to rule that his privileges as an MP had been violated because his party’s leadership was not allowing him to speak on an emotional issue. Warawa is passionately anti-abortion – or anti-choice, depending upon your personal point of view. His leader, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has publicly said he will not reopen the abortion debate, and he surely doesn’t want his troops whipping up a controversy Email with that might be used in an anti-Conservative campaign. Conservative party leaders likened gagging Warawa to making sure that the “team” kept to the game plan. It’s no secret that political parties orchestrate debate in the House of Commons. MPs all know what’s expected of them. Green Party leader Elizabeth May said Warawa’s battle “cuts to the core of what is wrong with parliamentary democracy.” NDP House Leader Nathan Cullen said his party does not vet statements made by its MPs in the 15 minutes prior to question period. But do NDP MPs ever stray far from their scripts? Warawa doesn’t want to stick to the script. And he shouldn’t have to. He is accountable to his constituents. If he thinks he’s acting on their behalf and they want him to ignite the abortion debate, then no party hack should stop him. Warawa should be allowed to speak – as long as he really is speaking about sexselective abortion, and not using such an important cause to open a can of worms that most Canadians are thankful has had the lid screwed on it – albeit loosely. If he wants to speak about abortion in general, then he should do so openly – and probably get shot down in flames. – B.G.

Sex-selective abortion

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

MP needs to put his team first

He stated, “The idea that members of parliament aren’t allowed to express an opinion on any subject is beyond to the belief,” and, “MPs must defend their right to vote on issues.” MPs do have those rights, but under controlled party protocol context, regardless of party. I think the distinction to question here is, does Mark’s representation of Langley, B.C., extend to promote a contentious issue to represent all of Canada? This type of division and disruption is what happened in the Reform/Alliance Party days, before Stephen Harper brought them together in a stronger cohesive unit. To use a hockey analogy, a player should learn his place and work within the team’s greater purpose, to have success. Roland Seguin, Langley

Kids almost lost their lives

Dear Editor, The parents of the two preteen boys I almost hit yesterday at Fraser Highway and 64th Avenue, by the torn down La Masia restaurant, ought to spank their children! I had a green arrow to turn left – not a yellow arrow, not a green solid light, but a green arrow to turn left, and their children walked right in front of my car as I was about to cross the intersection. I almost hit them. And when I honked, the little chubby one fingered me! It was pouring rain, and they had no umbrellas or rain jackets. They couldn’t have been more than 12 years old. I’d get it if they were 16 or 17, rebellious teens already, but these kids were still children, and they are still their parents’ responsibility. Those parents needs to stop being lazy by pretending to be busy doing something else. Their children could have died yesterday, and though it would have been completely their fault, I would have had to live with that burden for the rest of my life. Please discipline your children!

Genetic modification

Letter needlessly confusing

Dear Editor, If Mr. Brenan [GM assertions out of place, Mar. 12 Letters, Langley Advance] does not like Wally Martin’s comparison of GMO thalidomide [Stop genetic modifications, Feb. 12 Letters, Advance], that is fine. Martin was just trying to point out that, unfortunately, we cannot assume nowadays that potentially harmful foods and other products will not end up in the marketplace. In the case of GMO crops, which have been in our processed food since the mid-90s and have never been independently tested by our government, we can state with confidence that the effects of eating these foods have not been tested and found to be safe, other than through the studies of the biotech industry and the corporations that make and sell GMO seeds and technology. I feel his letter will potentially further confuse the public, as we do not have GMO potatoes, carrots, or other vegetables… yet. Bobbie Blair, Langley

207A Street, and specifically the portion our strata owns. The plans as being executed by the school district and the Township will put an exit from a planned drop-off lane at my front door. This presents many issues for my community and me. We were all working under the assumption that the school next door was going to be much smaller. We were all surprised to find out the developer and the Township had brokered a deal to provide the right-ofway on our privately owned road. It was disclosed by the developer in documents at the time, but the details referred to an easement, and it was not explained where the easement resided on the property. We are concerned that we will be funding a road that will essentially be a public road. Not only are we responsible for maintenance, snow removal, and enforcement, but we will no longer have a fence to separate our property from the school. We are willing to make sacrifices, so we asked the Township and school district to partner with us on some of those items. They replied a few days later with documents the developer signed, which basically absolve them of any responsibility for these items. The Township got a great deal, but at my community’s expense. Rather than putting down roots here, my wife and I will likely look to move elsewhere as soon as our mortgage rules permit it. And we won’t be trying to convince our friends to move here, either.

Dear Editor, Langley MP Mark Warawa attempted to put private member’s Motion-408 before a vote in parliament, using an emotionally charged topic to force a point of privilege [Sex-selective bill divides Tories, March 28, Langley Advance]. Sex-selective abortion (mostly females) is an issue that should be obvious, as we needed a mother to bear and raise us. However, some MPs may not want to air their views on abortion publicly by vote in parliament. As righteous a purpose it may be, perhaps Mark should find a different arena to voice his strong beliefs on this cause. Like it or not, party politics has its faults and limitations, but Mark ran under the Conservative Party organizational structure to represent Langley in Ottawa.

Wheelchair basketball

Hoopsters rising stars Local wheelchair basketball players are making an impact nationally.

Fourteen-year-old Jack Kosterman and 22-year-old Justin Johnson are continuing their rapid ascent in wheelchair basketball.

Minister for Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond handed out the MVP Award to Jack Kosterman of the BC Warriors following the 2013 Junior Western Regional Wheelchair Basketball Tournament.

Proving once again that Langley is a hot-spot for the sport, the two local athletes were honoured for their performance at the 2013 Junior Western Regional Wheelchair Basketball Tournament. The three-on-three tournament featured the top junior-aged athletes in western Canada from the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan, who are eligible to participate in the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George. The BC Warriors – coached by Hall of Fame Paralympian Marni Abbott along with Mitch Kosterman – won all six of their games in the preliminary rounds in front of large crowds at Duchess Park Secondary School in Prince George. When the dust settled, the Warriors edged Saskatchewan A in a final battle that was a nail-biter from start to finish. Jack Kosterman was named tournament MVP in leading the Warriors to a 21-18 gold medal victory over Saskatchewan. The lead switched back and forth so often, it was anyone’s game right to the end. The tense final saw spectacular action, including a pair of three-pointers scored by Kosterman. Kosterman’s second three-pointer came late in the game and pushed the Warriors out in front. Minister of Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond (MLA Prince GeorgeValemount) referred to it as “one sweet shot.” Bond presented Kosterman with the MVP award. Kosterman was a tournament high-scorer and has a reputation for being one of Canada’s most talented up-and-coming junior wheelchair basketball athletes. He became involved in the sport after developing a bone disease that left him with limited hip mobility. Langley’s Johnson, 22, was named a tournament all-star. Despite having been involved in the sport for less than three years, Johnson is on a fast-track to success in the wheelchair basketball world. He was recently named to the U23 Canadian men’s junior national team, which won a gold medal in the Americas Zone Qualification Tournament in Mexico this March. Johnson became involved in wheelchair basketball after sustaining a spinal cord injury while mountain biking.

Langley Advance files

Profiled in the Langley Advance in 2011, Jack Kosterman is one of Canada’s top junior wheelchair basketball players. Surrey’s Ben Hamilton was also named to the All Star team. The western nationals are the second annual competition in a four-year cycle that culminates in the Canada Winter Games in Prince George in 2015.

Dad’s dedication recognized

Mitch Kosterman was awarded the Volunteer of the Year Award by BC Wheelchair Basketball Society at a ceremony recently. His son Jack is a rising star in the junior wheelchair basketball world and Kosterman has devoted himself to giving back to the sport. “Mitch works tirelessly to create opportunities for young people with disabilities,” said BCWBS managing director Carrie Linegar. “He doesn’t just want to make his own son better, he wants to make all the kids he comes into contact with better.” Two summers ago, Kosterman started a new wheelchair basketball program in Langley called the Langley Gold Rush.

Learning how to mix family and business

A Langley family business is looking at how to do a generational transfer.

about is business at family dinners, Christian said. That could be frustrating for the members of the family who don’t have, or want to have, any involvement in the running of the dealerships, noted Erik. His wife isn’t an employee. The change has put business chit-chat off the menu for family meals. At the same time, CAFE recommends having a once-a-year sit down with all members of the family linked to the business, to get everyone up to speed on what’s going on, noted Karen.

by Matthew Claxton

When one generation gives up the reins of power and another takes hold, will it mean the end of a family business? The Jonker family of Jonker Nissan and Jonker Honda has been facing those issues in recent years, determined not to be a business that only lasts one generation. Karen Jonker and her husband Karel got the ball rolling in 1990 when Karel realized his longtime dream of having his own car dealership. Jonker Nissan was joined six years later by Jonker Honda, and the twinned car dealerships have been on the Langley Bypass ever since.

“The biggest thing had to be communication.” Christian Jonker

“Is it just that you have to have the same last name?” Karen Jonker

While the elder Jonkers had always thought of passing on their business to their sons, they also Two generations of a family business include heard of dealerships that Karen, Christian, and Erik Jonker. collapsed because there Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance was simply no succession plan in place. “What are the rules for succeeding?” they asked themselves, Karen Jonker said. “Is it parking vehicles, weeding, and maintainjust that you have to have the same last ing the landscaping, Karen said. name?” When they graduated high school, they The family decided that their boys, Erik, went off to college and got business autonow 33 and a general sales manager, motive diplomas, along with auto dealer and Christian, 30 and a sales manager at courses. Jonker Nissan, would have to meet some But even after years of the younger milestones before they took up spots in generation working at the Jonker Auto the family business. Group, the family is still trying to work Each of them had worked at the busiout how to separate the “family” from the ness since they were kids, washing cars, “business” in a family business.

They’ve taken part in seminars with the Canadian Association of Family Enterprise (CAFE), with a focus on succession planning between the generations. It’s clarified some things and made them change some aspects of the way they’d done things for years, Karen and her sons explained. “The biggest thing had to be communication,” Christian said. It can be too much if all everyone talks

Erik said there are certain things he would have done differently about taking on a leadership job at the dealership. CAFE recommends a period of time during which the next generation goes out on their own and works independently, up to 10 years away from the family business. “That’s the only big mistake we really made,” Erik said. Armed with more knowledge, the family is now moving forward with its succession plan. “We’re stepping back gradually,” said Karen. Because it’s a family business, she and Karel have less involvement in the business, but still stay connected to it. It’s nice to retire at their own pace, she said. There is a lot of involvement with nonfamily employees as well. No one knows now whether Jonker will be taken over by a third generation of the family. It’ll be a while before they’re old enough to decide for themselves whether they want to be in the car business.

Green Team eradicating aliens

On March 17, the Lower Mainland Green Team returned to the place where their battle against plant invaders began two years ago.

by Troy Landreville

Armed with gardening gloves, hand pruners, and loppers, a team of volunteers removed an alien species from Campbell Valley Regional Park on St. Patrick’s Day. Two years ago founder Lyda Salatian started the Lower Mainland Green Team (LMGT), and the group’s very first event was on March 6, 2011, at the South Langley park, where they pulled English ivy. Fast forward two years and the LMGT has run 72 events all over the Lower Mainland in municipal, regional and provincial parks. And the word is spreading. “We have 1,468 volunteers, and we’re growing by two volunteers a day,” Salatian said. “There definitely seems to be a real need. People want to help the environment and don’t know what to do. The Lower Mainland Green Team is offering opportunities.” On March 17 the team members were back at the place where it all started.

Spartans collar Bulldogs in ‘shallow’ win

View video with

Jarvis Ambaka scored the game winner as TWU escaped with a 21 win over Gonzaga.

Darnell Dyck had his most productive season in the B.C. Hockey League when he was a member of the Langley Rivermen in 2011/12. That season, he led the Rivermen with 65 points. Dyck is returning to his home province to play with the Selkirk Saints of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League.

Rivermen grad makes B.C. return Darnell Dyck is looking forward to suiting up for Selkirk College.

A former Smoke Eater, Riverman, and Lion is now, officially, a Saint. Twenty-one-year-old Darnell Dyck, who put up impressive offensive numbers as a member of the Langley Rivermen a year ago, has signed on with the Selkirk College Saints for the upcoming B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season. Dyck is returning to the West Kootenays after spending the 2009/10 season with the Trail Smoke Eaters. He played a total of four seasons in the BCHL and enjoyed his great-

est success in Langley, where he scored 19 goals and led the Rivermen with 65 points in 60 games during the 2011/12 campaign. Overall, Dyck netted 54 goals and 163 points in 230 BCHL games. The upcoming season will mark return visits to the Langley Events Centre, home of the BCIHL’s Trinity Western University Spartans. It was on the LEC ice that Dyck enjoyed many productive nights. Dyck spent the 2012/13 season at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri, where he helped lead the Lions to an appearance in the American Collegiate Hockey Association’s national championship game. He finished third on the Lindenwood team in goals and

fifth in points with 10 and 21, respectively, in 23 games and led all Lions freshmen in both categories. “We’re thrilled to be adding an impact offensive player like Darnell to a very strong group of returning forwards,” Saints head coach Jeff Dubois said. “We were active in trying to recruit Darnell out of the BCHL last summer and I was very pleased when he reconnected with an interest in playing closer to home. He’s already spent a year competing against college-aged players, and I’m sure he’ll be a valuable and productive player in our league.” Dyck plans to continue to study business, which was his focus over the past year at Lindenwood.

“I’ve heard nothing but good things about Selkirk College and the Saints hockey program,” said Dyck, who describes himself as a creative playmaker and a solid two-way player. “It isn’t a hard decision when you have the opportunity to play for a championship team. I want to do everything I can to help the team have another successful season on and off the ice, and keep the winning tradition going in Castlegar.” Dyck is Selkirk’s fifth commitment for the 2013/14 season, joining forward Garrett Kucher (Osoyoos, KIJHL), defencemen Stefan Gonzales (Aldergrove, PJHL) and Ryan Procyshyn (Delta, PJHL) and goaltender Myles Hovdebo (LaRonge, SJHL).

It may not have been the prettiest of wins, but the Trinity Western University men’s soccer team still managed to pull out a 2-1 decision over Gonzaga Friday at Rogers Field. Despite facing plenty of pressure from the Bulldogs throughout the contest, the Spartans did just enough to get the victory as goals from Rhys Volkenant and Jarvis Ambaka proved to be all they would need. “I thought it was the most shallow 21 win we’ve ever had,” Spartans coach Pat Rohla said. “I thought the “I thought the score flattered score flattered us, to be honest. us, to be But nonetheless, if you don’t play honest.” well and still get Pat Rohla a result, that’s a good sign.” Volkenant was the first to get the Spartans on the board as he converted a Jordan Whitehead cross from a corner. The Spartans’ Ambaka then got what would be the winning goal when he finished a well-built play, which was instigated from the back by Kalem Scott. After an impressive individual run, Scott connected with Nico Verseveldt in the midfield, who kept the play moving forward before giving it right back to a streaking Scott, who broke through Gonzaga’s back line and fed the ball to Ambaka. Last year’s TWU scorer leader made no mistake, burying his chance with a one-touch finish. Gonzaga hit two posts in the game and came close on a number of other occasions. The Spartans are back in action today (April 2), when they play the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Reserves at UBC at 5 p.m. They return to Rogers Field this Saturday, April 6, when they host Seattle Pacific at 1 p.m., and next Friday, April 12, when they host Western Washington at 7:30 p.m.

Win/win for Japanese curlers

Langley Curling Club hosted a competition with true international flavour.

It gives the Japanese curlers a chance to play against international teams, compete on different ice surfaces and receive valuable off-ice training. “The Japanese are very, very dedicated – they spend a lot of time on When Team Japan arrived at the ice,” Miki said. Vancouver International Airport ear“But you just can’t go there on lier last week, it was the first time the ice and throw rocks all day — many of them have ever stepped on you’ve got to play, too.

That’s In Langley to represent their country at the 2013 Optimist International what it boils down to.” Beyond the competition itself, U18 Curling Championships, the two the Japanese competitors are also teams of teenage curlers were up for challenged during the development a challenge that cannot be matched in their hometown of Aomori, Japan. camps prior to the games.

Championships are important.

Nonetheless, the experiences the Japanese curlers will take home trump any cultural challenges. “It’s a win-win situation, both for Team Japan and for the Optimist International Championships, because there’s nothing for kids under 18 to play in a competition like this,” Miki said. “The future of our game is with the young kids, and we don’t have enough young kids coming up. That’s why this is important.” The Optimist International U-18 Curling Championships were held at the Langley Curling Club and the Cloverdale Curling Club from March 27-31.

About the championships

The International U-18 Curling Championships celebrated its 13th year as an event designed to promote youth curling. Developed in 1999 by Bill Hans of the Calgary Youth Association, the event was first held in Calgary in 2001. It also been held in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. Previously known as the Optimist Western Canada Juvenile Curling Championships and the Optimist International Juvenile Curling Championships, the event has featured notable curlers such as Chelsea Carey, Kaitlyn Lawes, Breanne Meakin, Tyler Samagalski and Charley Thomas.

University softball

Langley pair helps SFU to split The Simon Fraser University softball team – which includes three Langley players – got a pair of strong pitching performances on Saturday as the Clan won one and lost one in their double header against the Central Washington Wildcats. SFU lost the first contest 2-0 but responded to win the second game 6-0. The Clan trailed 2-0 in the opener when they threatened in the seventh, loading the bases when Langley’s Danielle Raison reached on a throwing error and Lauren Kolanko was hit by a pitch.

In game two, Kelsie Hawins got her second consecutive shutout, as she went seven innings, allowing four hits and no runs while striking out six.

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Arlene Sydney Fletcher, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. Arlene was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She raised her 4 children in St James. She relocated to Langley, BC in 2005 and was thrilled to be close to most of her family. Arlene was a resident of Avalon Gardens for the past year and really enjoyed being part of that community. Arlene had many dear friends - some for over 60 years - including Merle Muloin of Winnipeg and Adele Peleshaty of Victoria, BC. Arlene lost her mother, Lucille Miller, when she was only 4 years old. She is also predeceased by her father Robert Parker Fletcher in 1984 and her half-sister, Devon Pavlidis in 2005. Arlene leaves to mourn her daughters: Shannon Dutchyn (Colin Rankin) of Langley and Lindsay Seaman (Gerald Allen) of Abbotsford, sons: Robert and Fletcher Seaman of Winnipeg, grandchildren: Patrick, Siobhan, Mark, Alyssa, Raina, and great grandson, Joseph. Arlene also leaves her new pet, Peaches the cat. Arlene was predeceased by her beloved Cleo the cat one month ago. Arlene was very fond of cats and had many, many of them over the years. Arlene was very kind, caring and articulate. She loved music, poetry, and listening to Stuart McLean’s "Vinyl CafØ". She enjoyed playing cards and was a formidable opponent! The family would like to thank the staff of Avalon Gardens for their support as well as Dr Richard Bacchus and Dr Mohamed of Langley. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Arlene’s favorite charity for animals, LAPS (Langley Animal Protection Society). Arlene requested no memorial service be held. We will continue to hold her memory in our hearts.

Meet the people ICBC doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want you to meet.

Introducing Sharene Orstad If you have been injured in a car accident, you may think ICBC will take care of you. But insurance companies have a vested interest in saving money and reducing costs, not paying you for your pain, loss or inconvenience. Sharene has been a member of the DBM team for over a decade; working to protect the rights of personal injury victims. At the negotiating table or in court, Sharene will present your case in a manner that ICBC adjusters and lawyers will respect and understand.

LANGLEY OFFICE Suite 205, 19978 72nd Ave. Langley, BC V2Y 1R7 T: 604-534-2131 F: 604-939-7584

If you are injured and wondering what happens next, call DBM to meet Sharene in person for a free initial consultation about your case.
