Can pups melt Dragons’ hearts? Richmond business bids for Den money to expand doggy hotel venture to Toronto BY YVONNE ROBERTSON Special to the News

It’s the lap of luxury — a resort located conveniently near the airport, individually themed bedrooms with views, private TVs, sheepskin covers, and a day spa, as well as the finest food money can buy. The Jet Pet Resort is Canada’s first airport location dog and cat resort, allowing owners to drop off and pick up their pets on the way to and from their various destinations. Some rooms are fitted with a 24/7 webcam for those suffering separation anxiety to see how their pets are doing whenever they please. Now owners Camila and Marcus Dahl have pitched their business model to the ruthless panel of judges on CBC’s Dragons’ Den, hoping to receive $200,000 for

Greasing the wheel Restaurateurs are apparently getting the anti-grease message, now the City of Richmond will set its sights on domestic dumping down kitchen sinks.

Capital spending lowest in years More than half of $68M budget to be spent on infrastructure BY ALAN CAMPBELL

a location in Toronto. The episode airs on Nov. 14. “We’ve never done anything like this, but as a family, we watch the show and thought it’d be fun to apply,” said Camila Dahl, back from the three-day trip to Toronto. “It was really quite an amazing experience.” The process began when a casting crew came to B.C. and the Dahls did a mini pitch for them. Chosen as one of six out of at least 150 applicants across the province, they then packed up and prepared for the trip to Toronto with an extra bit of confidence. see Mini pitch page 4 $

After a few years of big spending on a new community safety building, retro-fitting the oval post-Olympics and acquiring the Garden City Lands, the City of Richmond’s capital budget appears to have leveled out. Down again to $68.6 million for 2013 — from $72.6 this year — the city’s budget for maintaining and renewing infrastructure, equipment, buildings and parks and acquiring land is the lowest it’s been since pre-Olympic oval construction days. It’s a point not lost on several city council members, who were told that the operating cost impact of the $68.6 million program would increase next year’s property tax by 0.35 per cent. “I’m pleased to see we’re focusing on the bread and butter, with lots (of the budget) for the safety of the public,” said Coun.

Bill McNulty at Monday’s finance committee meeting. Fifty-nine per cent, or $39 million, of the budget will be spent on infrastructure, such as roads, drainage and sanitary pump stations. Almost $3 million will be spent on an interim Lansdowne Road extension from Alderbridge Way to Minoru Boulevard and $1.8 million on Nelson Road improvements. While upgrading the Bath Slough pump station will cost $4.2 million. Almost $2 million each will be needed to repair the building envelope at the West Richmond Community Centre next year and for the planned Railway Avenue Green Corridor. Coun. Harold Steves questioned the proposal to pave the four-metre wide Railway Avenue corridor and poked the $500,000 that was requested for Olympic oval precinct’s public art program (which was not included in the draft capi-

Who makes those decisions?” City staff informed Steves the public art concept at the oval was approved by city council. “Not by me it wasn’t, I must have voted against that,” joked Steves. McNulty asked for $100,000 to be added to the budget to keep Hugh Boyd turf up to scratch, adding he’d hate to see the surface suffer for the sake of $100,000. ❚ Full story at www.richmondnews.com.

Restorative justice being served

Association lauds program, says community attitude is changing

BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST Special to the News

Touchstone Family Association is convinced of the benefits of its restorative justice program and wants to show Richmond residents why. With Restorative Justice Week coming up Nov. 18 to 25, the association is hosting an interactive forum on the Richmond program that brings offenders and victims together to decide on a consequence both parties agree on. The purpose of the Nov. 21 forum is to help illustrate the experiences of those involved in conflict; be it fraud, theft or assault, said Haroon Bajwa, coordinator of Richmond restorative justice program. Attendees will participate in a fictional role play – which will be run like any other restorative justice program – and take up the

roles of offenders, their supporters, victims and other parties secondarily affected. While victims can explain to the offenders face-to-face the impact of the incident, offenders have the chance to take responsibility and participate in a solution that repairs some of the harm done. As part of the role play, “a discussion will be held in which all parties involved can share their perspectives on the incident that took place, which will hopefully lead to a better understanding of why it happened and how to prevent it in the future,” he stated. As they put themselves in the shoes of those affected by conflict, participants get to experience the benefits of the program first-hand, according to Bajwa. He hopes the public forum will

clarify the role of the restorative justice program within the community, turning attendees into advocates of the approach. He said he has recognized a change in the response of community members. “It’s most apparent when people are directly impacted. They are skeptical at first, but you see them move away from negative impressions to positive feelings towards one another.” Thanks to the program, “the rate of recidivism has reduced among first-time offenders, and all parties involved get closure quicker than through the court system, which takes much longer,” said Bajwa. The interactive forum takes place Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 6 p.m. till 8 p.m. at suite 101, 6411 Buswell St. Registration is

Foreign student fee hike advised Richmond Board of Education is considering an increase to the tuition fee for students registered in the International Student Program. Director of International Programs Richard Hudson wants the board to approve the increase from $12,800 to $13,800 for tuition and medical expenses per year. Against other Metro Vancouver cities, Richmond’s fees are currently the lowest, on par with New West, and just under Surrey. An increase would put Richmond above these municipalities and on par with the other cities, excluding West Van whose fees are at $15,000. The adjustment will “reflect the quality of the

program we are delivering,” wrote Hudson in the report. The recommendations will offset inflation issues, market conditions and will give the board greater flexibility in delivering educational programs to all of Richmond’s students, according to the report. In January, the board approved another tuition increase from $12,400 to $12,800, with the potential for a further increase in the 2013-2014 school year. It also set a district enrollment limit of 550 international secondary students and a district elementary level limit of no more than two per cent of the total district elementary population, according to the report.

District nets energy award

Richmond School District has won a 2012 Power Smart Excellence Award from BC Hydro, based on the energyefficient construction of Brighouse elementary. The awards are BC Hydro’s way of recognizing business customers and partners who demonstrate an approach to energy management and conservation. As the school opened in 2011, it was recognized by the district as an opportunity to demonstrate its environmental stewardship policy and to use the building as a teaching tool. One of the school’s environmental designs includes daylight harvesting with solar shading.

Mini pitch: Raised confidence Continued from page 1 “That mini pitch really gave us that extra push, and made us realize, okay this is actually a good idea,” said Dahl. A first-timer in Toronto, Dahl brimmed with excitement as soon as the plane hit the ground. For their pitch, the couple built a mini version of their “Dragon Suite” — a themed suite for the year of the dragon — and found local puppies as stand-in actors for their presentation. Before filming, they were prepped with information such as how they were to introduce themselves to the “dragons” and then they were thrown into the den. With the puppies nestled in the laps of each dragon — with only one minor accident — the Dahls presented their business model. “It was pretty much what I expected, so I wasn’t too nervous,” said Dahl, who’s been watching the show religiously for the past couple of years. The judges consist of (as described by the show’s producers) Internet mogul Bruce Croxon, marketing maven Arlene

and pump-out frequency for grease traps. The bylaw also limits the amount of grease and solids allowed to flow from the grease traps into the sewers “Restaurants and businesses out there know we’re checking,” he said. “I think there is now some standards being set at Metro Vancouver level.” Bicego said an average of four fines per month are being issued to restaurants in the city for breaching the grease bylaw, with fines varying from $100 to $1,000. The new Metro Vancouver measures are directed at grease interceptors or grease traps, the devices designed to capture grease. The bylaw, which is now in force, applies to all restaurants and commercial kitchens in the region. “Grease-clogged sewers cause sewage to back up and overflow, which causes damage to homes, businesses and properties,” said MV board chair Greg Moore. “It’s time to take more action to keep grease out of our sewers.”

As Metro Vancouver steps up its enforcement of grease-dumping bylaws, the City of Richmond is turning its attention to homeowners. Metro Vancouver has approved new requirements aimed at reducing the amount of grease going into the region’s sewers from restaurants and commercial kitchens. The city has been on the case for many years, educating and policing restaurants on the disposal of their leftovers and grease, which can cost millions of dollars every year to clear up. And, with the city now reporting an impressive 70 to 80 per cent compliance from Richmond’s eateries, the focus will soon switch to the city’s homeowners. “We’ve been doing it with a part-time inspector, trying to make sure there’s compliance,” said Romeo Bicego, the city’s manager of sewage and drainage. “However, we feel, operationally, the problem is coming also from the homeowners, where everything is perhaps still getting rinsed down the drains. “Many homes also have garbarators, but the fats, oils and greases still go hard at some point.” Urging residents to put their leftovers in a green recycling can or even in the garbage, Bicego said it’s all about changing people’s habits. “We will be turning to schools in a bid to get the message out to homes,” added Bicego. “There’s heavy residential development in the downtown core and each of those high towers could have hundreds of garbarators.” Bicego welcomed Metro Vancouver’s bylaw that establishes requirements for sizing

Teenage Asian females are being targeted by smartphone thieves in Richmond. Since the middle of September, Richmond RCMP has dealt with 16 cases where the victims, usually young Asian women, have been tricked or forced into giving up their smartphones. Mounties have, through the media, warned people several times not to be fooled by the sob stories spun by thieves who pretend to need the phone for a bogus emergency of some kind. Only one of the incidents involved a phone being taken by force. “With the price of cellphones these days you would think that they would be the last item voluntarily given to a total stranger, but it’s just not the case,” said

The Richmond thefts involve three recurring suspects in their early 20s — two Caucasian males and a black male — and the victims are typically Asian females in their late teens or early 20s. The incidents happened at various times of the day, but mostly in the evenings, in the downtown area from Cambie Road south to Park Road, and from No. 3 Road east to Garden City Road.

Future stars learn from heroes BY ALAN CAMPBELL

Around 100 of B.C.’s star athletes of the future mingled with and listened intently to the region’s sporting heroes at the Olympic oval on Saturday. The fourth Athlete Advance — organized by Canadian Sport Centre Pacific — attracted Ryan Walter, 1986 Stanley Cup champion, Karina

LeBlanc, 2012 Olympic bronze medalist (women’s soccer), Richard Peter, 2012, 2004 and 2000 Paralympic gold medalist, 2008 Paralympic silver medalist (men’s wheelchair basketball) and Ashleigh McIvor, 2010 Olympic gold medalist (women’s ski cross). Athlete Advance is a one-day conference designed to educate and inspire B.C.’s current

and future Olympic and Paralympic athletes in their quest for podium performances. Athletes had the opportunity to attend workshops by leading experts in their respective fields, such as sports psychology, injury prevention and cooking on-the-go (which included ideas on how to make a nutritious meal with a hotel room toaster). There were also presentations on branding and how to handle the media intertwined with keynote speeches from the aforementioned professional athletes. “The athletes that came ranged in age from their mid-to late teens to their 30s and 40s and there was a great atmosphere,” said Scott Allen, Canadian Sport Centre Pacific’s communications manager. “The athletes came from places like Vancouver Island and all over the Metro Vancouver area. “This was the second

Shift in RCMP attitudes

W

e learned this week that a West Vancouver police officer was reprimanded for letting a civilian put on his gun belt and for posting the pictures to

Facebook. While definitely a breach of policy, it was a minor incident and no real harm came of it. It was a stupid oversight and the officer’s superiors held him to account. And that’s what’s important here - accountability. In the vast majority of cases, our officers adhere to extremely high standards in what they do. But a series of high-profile incidents and even higher profile cover-ups by police in B.C., both municipal and RCMP, have left the public deeply skeptical about these organizations. As a society, we grant our police the authority to be the frontline arbiters of the law; however, we only do so on the condition that they remain totally accountable to the society that grants them that power in the first place. In these recent cases, B.C.’s police brass has given the impression that their image matters more to them than this needed transparency. But things appear to be turning around. By the account of the deputy police complaint commissioner, grievances about municipal forces are down thanks to positive changes in leadership. And the RCMP, which has been its own worst enemy in the battle for its public image, has acknowledged there must be a shift in its internal culture if they ever want to win back the proud reputation the red serge has earned. Let’s hope this trend continues, and that it leads to lasting change.

Chinese books an asset

The Editor, Re: “How necessary are these rare Chinese books?” Letters, Oct. 31. In response to the recent letter to the editor regarding the Dr. Lee donation, I would like to confirm this large donation of books does indeed come from Dr. Lee’s personal collection. Dr. Lee’s collection reflects his interest and depth of knowledge in a wide array of subjects including Chinese history, literature, medicine and art and is an incredible resource to our community. The thousands of books that Dr. Lee has previously donated to the library since 1995 were added to our very popular and well-used Chinese language collection and these books circulated exceptionally well. Over 15 per cent of our total circulation of materials comes from our Chinese language collection; not surprising given that 44 per cent of our community is of Chinese origin. Given the variety of subjects covered by this recent donation, we anticipate that it will prove to be of great interest to readers. The library has been provided with onetime additional funding in order to make the books accessible to the community and the process of unpacking and preparing the books for the shelves has begun. Room for them has been made at the Brighouse branch library and they are already beginning to appear on the shelves. Given the size and scope of this collection, cataloguing and processing it will take considerable time but it remains a high priority for the library. Members of the Richmond Chinese community have expressed their appreciation for this important addition to our library’s collections and they have joined with the library in expressing their gratitude to Dr. and Mrs. Lee. Dr. Lee is a firm believer in the value of lifelong learning and we are indeed fortunate that his love of books and learning has so enriched our library and our community. Pat Watson, Chair Richmond Public Library Board

Liberals continue to avoid accountability The B.C. Liberals are once again showing that the longer a party remains in power, the more it attempts to avoid accountability and transparency. Two recent events revealed a government that seems to be doing end runs around the rules governing what information should be disclosed publicly. One disturbing event was the revelation that not a single note or piece of paper was kept by anyone in government regarding the surprise resignation of Ken Boessenkool after an apparently inappropriate encounter with a female staffer at a downtown Victoria bar. A Vancouver Sun freedom of information request for any documents relating to the internal investigation of the incident was met with the reply that no such documents even exist because none were created. In other words, the government claims that a process that resulted in the resignation of the second most powerful person in government was done entirely orally, without a single note being kept. At the very least this seems odd, and at worst it is reveals a contempt for public accountability. The premier refuses to talk about it, citing some vague rule that has never been adequately explained. The whole mess has done little to help her repair her credibility with the public. The other incident involved the consultation

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

process for the expansion of Burnaby General Hospital. A batch of emails showed that information was being sent to a cabinet minister’s private e-mail account, which is not covered by the freedom of information law. What’s troubling about all this is that these don’t appear to be isolated incidents and instead reflect a growing trend in the B.C. government towards secrecy and away from openness. I’ve heard plenty of anecdotal stories from civil servants and political appointees over the years about how they sometimes avoid scrutiny by deliberately not keeping notes, writing memos, or by using gmail or hotmail e-mail accounts instead of official government e-mail addresses. Vincent Gogolek, the executive director of the B.C. Freedom of Information and Privacy Association, calls the situation “very troubling.” His organization estimates that almost onefourth of all freedom of information requests are met with a “no records found” response. When it comes to media requests only, the number jumps to

one-third. “We’ve been seeing things getting worse,” Gogolek told me. “There’s something really wrong here.” Reporters are already used to getting documents through FOI that are heavily redacted. But the problems now appear to be growing well beyond that. Gogolek found the lack of documentation surrounding Boessenkool’s departure “unacceptable” and said uncovering the use of a cabinet minister’s private emails in a supposedly public consultation process confirmed deep suspicions that this occurs much more frequently. Gogolek would like to see the freedom of information law amended to include a clause that would require public officials to keep records. Called a “duty to document”, such a change could go a long way to end what appears to be a culture of silence that has grown in parts of the government. The freedom of information commissioner is investigating B.C.F.I.P.A.’s concerns. Let’s hope it leads to some bright lights being shone in corners of government that right now are fairly dark. Who knows? Maybe the next time a powerful staffer leaves under a cloud, someone might make a note or two about why. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Faregates won’t help The Editor, “About time TransLink gets faregates,” Letters, Nov. 2. While Councillor Bill McNulty pats himself on the back for “championing” faregates at transit stations, we taxpayers should be watching our wallets and sighing for the future of our region. This taxpayer doesn’t understand McNulty’s insistence that the faregates be installed, despite clear and publicly available evidence from TransLink’s many studies that faregates will never come close to paying for themselves, nor solve the fare evasion problem. Perhaps the councillor can explain how faregates, which cost the taxpayers $170 million to install and will cost $9 million annually to operate, are a prudent way to address a $5 million per year fare evasion problem on busses? Since we are already engaging in fantasy, why not explain how TransLink’s ongoing revenue problems will be addressed by preventing fare evasion, which represents less than 0.3 per cent of TransLink’s revenue? TransLink did not agree to install fare gates at McNulty’s insistence, but were forced to

do so by the provincial government, over the objections of many experts. And because of the uninformed political interference of people like McNulty, we are now spending a significant amount of public money on ineffective faregates. TransLink is attempting to make the most of this lousy situation by using the faregates to gather traveller information through their Compass Card program, the single practical benefit, which McNulty fails to identify in his glowing assessment of this otherwise boondoggle program. Thank you, Councillor McNulty, for your opportunistic “championing” of perceived transit needs. Now, who will champion the real problems of our public transit system: lack of stable funding, over-crowded and unreliable buses, poor regional planning, etc.? Who will champion the building of a transit system that meets the needs of our region’s future, one that addresses real problems such as car dependence, and the very costly “need to drive a vehicle” under which far too many people suffer? Andrew Feltham New Westminster

Letters Demolish oval and halt tax drain The Editor, Re: “City needs new accounting officer,” Letters, Nov. 2. I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Murphy’s letter where he talks about the future of this building. Years ago, I stated that the oval, as it was called then by our city council, would be a Nine Day Wonder during the time of the Olympics and then it would become a useless, white elephant. Mayor Brodie then went on record to state categorically that, rather than a white elephant, this facility would become a great economic boost to the Richmond economy. At that time, he was basking in the glow of having won The Teddy Award, a trophy awarded for the

most flagrant misuse of taxpayers’ money. This is a national competition and all city councils in Canada are eligible. Richmond’s council was an easy winner. Since the Olympics, the OweVal, as it has come to be known, has had to be heavily subsidized as figures have shown only about one per cent of Richmond residents use it. And so, city hall’s answer to these somewhat gloomy figures is to pour more money into what is rapidly becoming a completely bottomless pit. Last year, it was a climbing wall. This year it is a museum — the expectations are that people will come from all over the world to visit it. I somewhat doubt it.

Fin eaters should watch Sharkwater The Editor, Re: “Wong stands by decision to eat shark fin,” News, Oct. 17. I’m hoping that anyone who continues the practice of buying this product does so because of a lack of knowledge. The way I see it, there are two choices for the future — sharks in the ocean and none in the bowl, or no sharks in the ocean and none in the bowl. No soup

either way. For those who don’t agree, please take a look at the documentary Sharkwater by Canadian biologist and film-maker Rob Stewart. It is not only informative, but also entertaining with some beautiful underwater footage. And it is free to rent at your local library. Carolyn Hamley Richmond

Gala raises funds for toy library BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

For months after Anne Cuthbert’s son Matthew Wilson was born, the new mom had no idea her beautiful baby boy had heart problems. By the time Matthew was a year old, he needed open-heart surgery. “Because Matthew went undiagnosed for months, he was developmentally delayed,” said Cuthbert. “Our doctors recommended the Richmond Society for Community Living’s Infant Development Program.” The Richmond mom was impressed by the improvement Matthew made within a short time of being in the program. “He’s made remarkable progress,” she said. “What really made a difference were the toys lent to us by the RSCL Lending Library. “They have toys I can’t even find in stores, all of them with the goal to work on his fine motor skills.” Today, Matthew is a happy, busy two-and-a-half-year-old toddler. “Matthew is doing so well that Alex from the Supported Child Development program only comes to our home once a month, but each time she brings Matthew a new toy,” said Cuthbert. “Alex tells us what games and toys

we should use to play with him and Matthew loves that he gets to play with new toys all the time.” Educational, adaptive toys for children with disabilities aren’t cheap. To enable RSCL to continue to supplying children like Matthew with educational toys, the nonprofit organization is hosting its signature fundraising event on Nov. 15. Toys and other adaptive equipment is part of RSCL’s Lending Library inventory. The library is actually a large storage space in the Caring Place that houses unique and helpful toys, specialized books, and equipment such as a portable lift for local schools or community centres that aren’t equipped with one. “The Lending Library also loans toys and equipment to preschools and licensed child care programs that have children in supported spots through our Supported Child Development program,” said Lisa Cowell, RSCL manager fund and community development. “The demand from schools and community centre programs, as well as parents, is high and some of the pieces aren’t cheap.” Currently, the Lending Library has no idea how many toys or pieces of equipment they have as it doesn’t

have a proper inventory system. “We are hoping to raise a significant amount of money to purchase more equipment and also to develop some storage/inventory systems in order to allow families and childcare centres to maximize from the program,” added Cowell. Both Carrie McLellan-Haqq, a SCD coordinator, and her colleague Annie Hung, an infant development acting coordinator, said the Lending Library plays a vital role in the care and education that they do in schools, community centres and in homes of children with disabilities. “Everyone who uses the library is so grateful,” said McLellan-Haqq. The two explained to the News that there are different adaptive toys available for different special needs. “For example, a child with cerebral palsy, who has poor motor skills, might find switch-activated toys more helpful, while a child with autism would do better with toys that promote sensory,” said McLellanHaqq. “Adaptive toys are made so that a special needs child can improve the skill that they are lacking.” One such toy is a “green wiggle wedge” that children with ADHD or autism sit on and it seems to miraculously calm them down. see Equipment page 11

The Richmond News November 7. 2012 A11

Community

Equipment: Aids development Continued from page 10 “For these kids, the need to move is so strong and when they need that sensory, they can sit on the green wiggle wedge without disrupting the class,” said Hung. Proceeds raised during Benefit of Possibilities … A Community Affair will be divided between the Lending Library and the Employment Program — which supports youth and adults with developmental disabilities to find paid work, and in turn, raise their self-esteem and feeling of self worth. “We are hoping to raise between $10 and $15,000,” added Cowell. “This is our fourth year and we really hope to sell more than 100 tickets this year.” The RSCL’s signature fundraising event happens Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Grand Ballroom, Executive Airport Plaza Hotel from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $75. “This year, our event is a carnival theme … it should be a lot of fun,” said Cowell.

Chapters launches authors night BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

When Richmond author Danny Unrau published his first two books, he remembers travelling to the different Chapters locations in his city for small, intimate readings. That was back in the late ’90s when the now megabookstore wasn’t so mega, and focused more on the local, unique aspects of a community. However, with a new general manager in town, this intimate feeling is com- Danny Unrau ing back. Ryan Genoe wants to shift focus to community involvement and created a “local authors night” as part of the national rewards members evening this Thursday. Unrau brought the idea to Genoe’s attention when he was “shamelessly promoting” his latest novel, You Are The Boy. “I remember when Chapters was a little less corporate back in the ’90s and wanted to see if I could bring that back,” said Unrau, who was a high school teacher in northern B.C. and a clergyman at Fraserview Church. Wanting to showcase local talent, Genoe invited Unrau, and two other authors, yet to confirm, to set up a table and an opportunity for them to mingle with the community. As a first-timer, Genoe is unsure how the night will unfold, but wants to encourage readings from the authors as well. “This gives us the opportunity to try

something new,” said Genoe. “We’re trying to build a stronger relationship with the city.” As for Unrau’s new novel, it also focuses on the interconnectedness of community, particularly when it comes to the family. It tells the mysterious tale of Ben who finds historical connections to a Jewish infant left on a Mennonite family’s doorstep and to the grandfather of a close friend. The readers have the thrill of discovering these connections — as Unrau saw when reading to an engaged class at Hugh Boyd — but the characters don’t always see them. “This is true to our lives,” said Unrau. “Things went on before us and continue to go on after us, we don’t know everything.” The family systems theoretician was inspired by the universal search for one’s ethnic roots. He remembered watching a Canadian show about ethnicity. “It allowed me to go into my own background, and be curious about it, which Canadian society didn’t really encourage when I was growing up,” said Unrau, whose parents came from Russia. Though somewhat autobiographical, You Are The Boy largely mixes truth with fiction, a mixture Unrau is hesitant to separate, even for his own family. “If they ask me, I think I’ll just shrug,” said Unrau with a laugh. But he enigmatically added, “We write what we know. Truth is a lot more interesting. I don’t think there really is such thing as fiction.” Thursday’s event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Chapters in Richmond. Genoe hopes to continue with similar events such as free seminars and knitting circles.

Playing tag with the beasts of Tiger Temple BY JOHN GEARY Special to the News

The tiger sniffed my hands, decided he liked the smell, then started to chew. That is, he decided to chew the chicken I was holding out for him — not my hands. Although this may sound like I tempted fate, it really was not as dangerous as it sounds. However, there is something special about offering food to a large carnivore that you know could eat you, but instead decides to take food from your hands, even licking them to make sure it gets every last morsel of chicken. In this case, the carnivore was a large, but not fully-grown tiger, one of 88 that lives at the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. Feeding the cat from my hands was just one aspect of my day spent among the tigers at

the temple. This cat’s tongue, to my surprise, was no rougher than the tongues of housecats I’ve kept as pets — although it’s obviously much bigger. My temple experience is not included with regular admission. However, for an extra fee, visitors may participate in this extended program that includes feeding a tiger cub from a bottle, walking (or rather, being walked by!) a tiger, bathing them, feeding them by hand, playing with some adolescent tigers in a pool, and finally, watching adult tigers engage in play in a larger pool where it’s “staff only.” The highlight really does come when we enter a large play area that includes a moat next to the wall separating the tigers from casual visitors, like you would see in any zoo. Provided with long poles with big, inflated garbage bags tied to the end, we use them as you might use a piece of string to play with a housecat. Except with these cats, you really need to pay attention all the time — and it’s usually a good idea to let the tiger win the ensuing tugof-war, once its claws grab one of the bags. Having one of these cats in your lap might be a bit scarier than having Fluffy jump you in your chair, at home. And you have to watch for the others playing around you, as well. The tigers here are not exactly wild, but not exactly tame either. Tiger Temple began with the saving of two young Indo-Chinese tiger cubs from starvation after poachers shot their mother. Someone brought them to the monastery and the monks began to care for

Before long, more cubs were brought to the temple, and soon it became a sanctuary — and then a tourist attraction. As the sanctuary’s tiger population grew, so did its popularity — and its critics. Because this approach differs from standard western practices of animal conservation or welfare, there are critics of the temple’s approach to keeping these endangered ani-

mals in what is essentially a zoo. Dr. Somchai, the head veterinarian at the Tiger Temple, admits the situation is far from a perfect solution. Would he not rather see these tigers in the wild? “Yes, I would,” he states, emphatically. But then he raises the pertinent question, “Where would they live?” There is not enough forest cover in see Forest cover page 17

Forest cover: Not enough to let the 88 tigers back into wild Continued from page 16 Thailand to provide food and habitat for the 88 tigers that live at the temple. Dr. Somchai speculates if these tigers were rehabilitated and released into the wild, they would probably be shot. Unless humans change our ways, eventually there may not be any more wild tigers, anywhere. Even now, there are more tigers in captivity than those living in the wild. That’s an argument in favour of facilities like Tiger Temple.

From near extinction to championship contender

Hugh Boyd Trojans host playoff game on Thursday after their season looked to be in jeopardy two months earlier BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

Fourteen weeks ago the junior varsity football program at Hugh Boyd secondary school was on the verge of folding. Today, it’s three wins away from playing for a provincial championship. The remarkable turnaround is one of the more satisfying achievements of Bruce Haddow’s long and successful coaching career. The Trojans captured first place in their conference by winning four of five games and will host an opening round playoff game tomorrow afternoon when the Handsworth Royals visit at 3 p.m. “We are ecstatic to be in this position,” said Haddow. “We’re just really happy with the way things went.” The future of Boyd’s junior team became murky when last school year’s teacher labour dispute wiped out spring training. The 10 practice sessions not

only helped get the players ready for the fall season, it provided the coaching staff with a good idea what kind of numbers they will have moving forward. Without that gauge and the fact football has never been an easy sell, despite being the only school in the city to offer it, Haddow was concerned. He also knew he was going to have to take on a greater role with head coach Brock Aura pursuing his master’s degree. “When I left the school in June, I really didn’t think there was going to be a junior team,” said Haddow. He told the handful of students who were interested to sign-up for community football so they could at least keep playing. As the summer unfolded there was indication there just may be a enough players to have a team. Training sessions were scheduled for late August but no more than 14 players turned up — not enough to field a

team. “We probably averaged about 11 players a practice,” recalled Haddow. “It was bad enough that I had to cancel our first game against Tweedsmuir. “Still, we didn’t want to give up at that point. The thought was if we beat the drum once school was back in, we may just get enough kids to have a team.” The response was better than hoped for. Some players who were part of the Grade 8 team and had sat out a year, decided to come back. The roster grew to a healthy 25 players. Boyd’s lack of preparation time was evident in a 25-0 season-opening loss to Abbotsford’s Robert Bateman but the progress and confidence grew from there. The Trojans outlasted Argyle 42-36 then proceeded to win four straight in conference play against Earl Marriott (32-0), Holy Cross (14-12), Seaquam (22-0) and Langley (36-

The roster features some promising players including fullback/linebacker Jacob Tubajon and quarterback Gabe Saklofsky. “By missing 20 prac-

tices, it took us half the season to really get into our system,” added Haddow. “We have reset our goal now and to win a playoff game would be huge for this program.

“It didn’t look good at all for a while but I really think the entire football program at our school is ready to come back a bit thanks to what this group has accomplished.”

PIJHL heavyweights to do battle again on Thursday at Minoru

With a fresh face in net, the Richmond Sockeyes are getting set to renew their rivalry with the Delta Ice Hawks. The top two teams in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League will meet for the third time this season on Thursday night at Minoru Arena (7:30 p.m.). The Ice Hawks (14-2-0-1) own a four-point lead over Richmond (12-3-1-0) atop the TomShaw Conference, heading into play this week. Each club has won on the road in the season series, with Richmond producing a 4-1 victory in Ladner after being blanked at home.

“It’s funny, their building seems better suited to our game and I think they are really comfortable playing here,” said Ice Hawks head coach Dave McLellan. “We will definitely have to be a lot better than the last time we played them.” Sockeyes general manager Richard Petrowsky was busy last week shoring up his depth in goal after learning rookie Payton Lee was headed to the Western Hockey League’s Vancouver Giants and possibly for good. The 16-year-old Cranbrook native’s time in Richmond was in jeopardy after

he turned in a solid performance as a callup in a 4-1 win over Victoria on Oct. 26. An injury to veteran Liam Liston left the Giants little choice but to sign Lee who has been pegged as their goalie of the future. He was in net for the Giants 6-3 victory over Kootenay on Saturday night. Taking place Lee’s spot on the Sockeyes roster is William Latimer who was acquired from the Mission City Outlaws for future considerations. Latimer faced his former team a day as Richmond defeated the visiting Outlaws 41. He stopped 19 shots while Daniell Lange

led the way offensively with a pair of goals. Derek Hughes and Stephen Campbell also scored, while Danton Heinen added three assists. Icing... Payton Lee was not the only former Sockeye making a difference for the Giants. Rookie Carter Popoff scored his first-ever WHL goal last week in Vancouver’s road win over the Lethbridge Hurricanes.

Francisco, Watson shine at CIS field hockey nationals

Goalkeeper backstops UBC to another McCrae Cup while defender concludes outstanding career for Varsity Blues Two Richmond field hockey players figured prominently in last weekend’s CIS Nationals Chamionships in Toronto. Third-year goaltender Bea Francisco backstopped the top ranked UBC Thunderbirds to their second straight national title and third McCrae Cup title in four years with a 3-0 win over the No. 2 University of Toronto Blues in the gold medal game. The Canada West champions ended the national tournament with a 4-0-1 record with Francisco recording three shutouts. UBC has won a record

14 national championships, three more than Toronto and Victoria. Francisco, a graduate of Little Flower Academy, joined the Thunderbirds in late September after helping Kaelan Watson Canada’s junior national team secure a 2013 World Cup berth with a second place finish at the Pan American Junior Championships in Mexico.

Meanwhile, the CIS Nationals capped an outstanding university career for fifth-year Blues defender Kaelan Watson. The McRoberts graduate was chosen Toronto’s MVP in the championship game, her

final award of another decorated season. Earlier in the week, Watson was named a First Team All-Canadian for the fourth time in her career. She was a Second Team All-Canadian in her freshman season and has been a Ontario University Athletics all-star all five years. In 2010, the Physical Education major led the Blues to the national title, earning tournament MVP

honours. University Notes... Rachel Ramsden’s goals three minutes into the match stood up as the game winner as the UBC women’s soccer team closed out its season with a 1-0 win over the University of Regina at the Canada West Championships in Langley. The McRoberts graduate finished off a feed from Taylor Shannik in what was

the final game of her university career. UBC’s hopes of advancing to this week’s CIS National Championships in Victoria ended a day earlier with a heartbreaking 1-0 loss in penalty kicks to Victoria. UBC’s starting 11 this season featured three players from Richmond with Taryn Lim and Sydney Morrison joining Ramsden.

Also expected to contend this week are the Richmond Colts and Burnett Breakers who both finished tied with McRoberts in the standings, all with 5-2 records. Burnett managed a 3-2 win over McRoberts back on Oct. 17. The boys championship game is slated for 7 p.m. on Thursday night at Steveston-London.

Both teams dominated city opponents with the Wildcats (10-0) handing the Eagles (9-1) their only loss

inners and Losers is a staged conversation between long-time friends Marcus Youssef and James Long. They sit at a table and play a game they’ve made up; naming people, places or things like Tom Cruise, microwave ovens, or their fathers— and debate whether these things are winners or losers. As they try to win the game, their debate becomes very candid and very personal. Marcus Youssef, one of Winners and Losers’ playwrights, answered our questions.

Who’s the better man? James Long & Marcus Youssef co-wrote and star in Winners & Losers, at Gateway Theatre in November. Photo: Simon Hayter

Q: What is Winners and Losers about? Marcus: It’s about how competition and class are part of everything we do, and how that affects our closest friendships, like it or not. Q: Why is including the characters’ economic backgrounds important? Marcus: Because we hardly ever talk about money in our personal lives, yet it’s the single most important social and political force in the world. How can we sort the current mess out if we can’t talk about money with our closest friends? But it’s hard to do. Q: Why should people come see this play? What makes it a winner? Marcus: It’s funny and it’s really honest. It doesn’t feel like fake, ordinary theatre. It’s about something. And we’re really, really, really good looking. Jamie in particular. And I don’t look a day over 29. Q: What do you hope audiences take away after seeing it? Marcus: I hope they’ve had a good time, and laughed a fair bit, and also witnessed something challenging and a bit scary. I also hope it makes them feel good—because it says something about how we try to live in the world.
