Workshops designed to help caregivers deal with emotional turmoil of life-change BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

It’s something that we may all have to face one day — the prospect of placing a loved one in residential care. Despite pacts made never to put each other into the hands of a facility for the elderly, many people find themselves in exactly that position. And that’s why the Alzheimer Society of B.C. is helping families prepare for those possibilities, with free workshops tonight (Wednesday) and next week. “It’s quite a traumatic experience, as caregivers have generally worn themselves

out caring for someone at home,” said Krista Frazee, the Richmond-South Delta support and education coordinator for the society. “It’s a terrible process to go through, realizing that you can’t care any more for the person you love, especially when you’ve sworn to that person you wouldn’t put them into care.” Frazee said the workshops will help caregivers deal with the inevitable, and sometimes overwhelming, guilt felt when having to place their husband, wife, father or mother in care. “It can be an extremely challenging time for everyone involved,” added Frazee, saying that, as well as the guilt,

there can be a lot of animosity felt by the person going into care. “Not just the very emotional aspect of it, there’s also negotiations that need to be done with the care facility and how to be part of their team. “There’s also the loss of privacy felt by both parties and they’ll have to learn how to maintain their relationship in new surroundings.” Frazee said it can sometimes take up to six months for people to settle into their new life. The workshops will be split into two parts. Preparation for Transition to Residential Care takes place see Frazee page 4

Richmond Mounties have appealed for witnesses after a motorcyclist came off the road and skidded along the sidewalk. Excessive speed is being investigated as a factor following the accident around 7 p.m. near Colville and No. 2 roads on Sunday. It’s understood the biker was heading south when he lost control and ended up sliding along the sidewalk before coming to a stop. The RCMP said the biker — who’s in his mid-20s — is being treated for a head injury, but at last word was listed in stable condition. Anyone who saw the crash is asked to call Richmond RCMP traffic services at 604278-1212.

Addictions agency appeals for ambassadors BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News

Not only is Richmond’s population aging, but an increased percentage of that elderly population is battling substance abuse, grief, mental health issues and loss of mobility. Add to that a culturally isolated immigrant population, and action needs to be taken, said Rick Dubras, executive director of Richmond Addiction Services.

Starting this month, Dubras — working with Volunteer Richmond and other local organizations — is recruiting individuals over the age of 55 to be part of a program called the Community Action Ambassadors, funded by the province-supported Community Action Initiative. “The program is geared to train 40 ambassadors of various ethnic and language backgrounds,” said Dubras. “They will then be asked to go out into

An investigation into gasoline thefts ended when police found their suspect allegedly beating up a bus driver and trying to steal his bus. On Feb. 6, Langley RCMP’s Street Enforcement Unit spotted a Ford pickup with two fuel containers in its cargo box, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley police. They followed the truck to Richmond, where two people, a man and a woman, got out and walked along a set of railroad tracks to a warehouse complex. The pair pulled out a boat and trailer, which was hitched to their truck as they pulled out. The Richmond RCMP were called in to help arrest the suspicious pair, and the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service was also brought into the operation. A police vehicle approached the truck to pull it over, but the driver apparently had other plans. Marks said the driver reversed, hit a parked car, and then drove around the police cruiser and fled. There was a brief chase by police, broken off quickly, Marks said. Marked police cars vanished from around the suspicious truck, but unmarked cars

driven by specially trained surveillance officers kept following it. The suspect headed for Highway 99 and drove south. In Surrey, the truck turned north onto King George Boulevard and then tried to turn east onto 40th Avenue, Marks said. The driver missed his turn and slammed into a BC Hydro power pole, knocking the pole to the ground and halting his truck. Street Enforcement Unit officers turned up within minutes and arrested the woman who had been in the truck’s passenger seat, but the man had already fled. Not long after the crash, a Coast Mountain Transit driver called in a report that he had been flagged down by a man covered in mud nearby. The man seemed suspicious, the driver thought. The report was passed along to the police. Richmond RCMP pulled over the bus nearby, and found their suspect sitting on top of the driver, attacking him. Marks said police believe the suspect was trying to swipe the bus as a new getaway. The man was arrested, and both the truck and the boat were found to be stolen. Troy Regnier, a 27-year-old Delta man, has been held in custody since his arrest, and was in Surrey Provincial Court Tuesday on charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, driving while disqualified, driving while prohibited and fleeing from police, robbery and possession of stolen property.

Margaret Stephens with the Community Arts Council and Linda Shirley from Renaissance Kids in Steveston are getting ready to welcome students from Westwind elementary school and Vancouver’s Admiral Seymour in a new outreach program called Immersed in Art.

Special to the News

hen Linda Shirley heard a school in her family’s old neighbourhood was in need of assistance, she knew there was an artistic match to be made. Shirley, CEO of the Arts Connection, which provides fine arts and educational programming, has a special tie with Admiral Seymour elementary school in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. It’s where her father once went. Known now as one of the poorest postal codes in the country, many students there face disadvantages to the point where one of the teachers was sharing food with her students. When that came to Shirley’s attention just over a year ago when the teacher went public, she got the wheels in motion to help. “When I opened up the newspaper, I saw a big headline that there had been a letter written by a teacher at Seymour school, who had done it out of her frustration, about poverty at the school,” Shirley said. “I was quite moved.” Shirley wrote back to the teacher and told her of her family’s history

in the neighbourhood and was interested in getting her own arts school in Steveston involved. “I wanted to see how in some way our school could get into a collaborative project to support the students.” That led to the Arts Connection contributing arts supplies for Admiral Seymour’s art therapy program. Students at Shirley’s school then raised money through a sock hop to help fund the purchase of more than 200 gift bags of art supplies for the east Vancouver students to use over the summer months. “As we got into the fall, I got to thinking if it was to be made ongoing it had to be made even bigger,” Shirley said. And that brought into play the Arts Connection’s newly expanded, 17,000square-foot facility that opened early this year. Starting later this month, half of the Grade 6 and 7 students from Admiral Seymour school will pair up with students from Westwind elementary to spend time in the facility. “We wanted to start with the older grades and catch them before they left for high school,” Shirley said. During the day they will rotate through visual arts, dance, and drama,

and conclude with students from both schools combining their efforts to produce a painting of their experiences. “We’re hoping there will be some interesting stories that come from this,” said Margaret Stephens of the Community Arts Council of Richmond which was enlisted to help secure some grant funding and sponsorship in an effort to get the program firmly established. “It’s a way to take the kids out of the environment that they live in, which is not very pleasant, bring them to a beautiful new facility, and pair them with students from Westwind elementary school.” If more funding becomes available, Stephens said plans are to get some schools from east Richmond involved. In March, the remaining group of students from Westwind and Admiral Seymour will pass through the Arts Connection. Both groups will then make a second visit before the end of the school year to round out their artistic trip. “For me, merging helping kids who need it along with art from the community arts council was a natural,” said Stephens, who has been associated with Variety the Children’s Charity since 1980.

Ottawa hears, sees no evil

A

report from the federal commissioner of the environment last week points out once more the disturbing way Ottawa has failed to address legitimate concerns about B.C.’s pipeline proposals. It’s just the latest in a series of less-than-reassuring developments. Last month, Kinder Morgan announced that despite one set of figures used in public consultations last year, the company actually wants to ship a lot more oil — meaning more or bigger tankers in Burrard Inlet — or both. This week, federal commissioner Scott Vaughan informs us federal regulators are ill-prepared to address any kind of catastrophic oil spill. In apparent confirmation of what activists have said, Vaughan points out in his report that rules and resources in place to deal with any major oil spill are wholly inadequate. Among his findings: there is no formal process for updating an assessment of risks, no recognition of a huge anticipated increase in west coast tanker traffic and not enough money to handle the costs of cleaning up spills. Any costs not covered would inevitably fall to the public purse. Proponents of the projects, of course, don’t expect to see any oil spills. But that is the nature of disaster preparation — spending money and effort to deal with something we don’t expect to happen. We don’t expect ships to sink either, but we still have federally mandated safety standards and lifeboats meant to carry all passengers on board — not just some of them. Ottawa’s insistence on seeing no evil when it comes to environmental risk should make us all very nervous.

CHOICE WORDS

Let go of Olympic dream The Editor, Re: “McNulty: Museum cost justified,” News, Jan. 25. Sorry Bill, but I have to disagree with you on this one. These proposed expenditures of $575,000 (city) + $2.5 million from the province + $1.5 million over three years from Oval Corporation and, let us not forget, the $1 million sponsorship money, will certainly buy the Cadillac operation that you, the city and the Oval Corporation are looking for, but at the taxpayer expense. To a mere mortal, this seems like a lot of money, but to the empire builders down by the river, I guess it’s just another day at the office. Champagne wishes and caviar dreams. Previous rosy predictions of thousands of museum visitors paying $10-$15 dollars is overly optimistic, I believe. This monolith has become a bottomless money pit sucking the life from Richmond’s other sporting interests. Council doesn’t appear to be able to say no to these guys. The Olympic circus left town two years ago, but it is looking like all the little children are still captivated with it. Let’s hear from the taxpaying public on this one. It’s your money. David L. Merke Richmond

Other parties may have election impact

While the two major political parties garner most of the attention in this province, I wonder whether other parties and independent candidates will have a larger impact on May’s election than anything we’ve seen recently. Polls indicate there is a mobile bloc of “protest” voters who are upset at the B.C. Liberal government for a number of reasons, and are willing to consider alternatives. The NDP seems to have attracted the highest number of disaffected B.C. Liberal supporters, but public opinion can evolve fairly quickly during an election campaign and it can head in unforeseen directions. For example, during the 1991 election campaign the ruling Social Credit party fell apart in a very public way and the B.C. Liberals came out of nowhere to the point of almost winning the election itself. Thousands of people deserted the Socreds but were unwilling to switch to the polar opposite NDP and settled on something else. If the B.C. Liberals don’t get their act together and win back a significant number of voters, I suspect the B.C. Conservative Party and in particular the Green Party will be the prime beneficiaries. As well, there are four or five independent candidates who either stand a decent chance of winning or at the very least playing spoiler. The independents are: Vicki Huntington (Delta

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

South), Bob Simpson (Cariboo North), John van Dongen (Abbotsford South), Arthur Hadland (Peace River North) and Moe Gill (Abbotsford West). It would appear that Huntington has the best chance of being elected, since she’s already proven she can be elected as an Independent. I would rank Hadland, who took almost a third of the vote in 2009, as standing the next best chance of winning (he’s campaigning partly on his opposition to the Site C dam project, which will stand him well with voters in the Peace River region). I wouldn’t count van Dongen out either. He’ll be in a tight three or four way race where a relatively low vote count can prove victorious. The Green Party may prove to be the most interesting group to watch. It is perfectly positioned to attract voters who are fed up with the B.C. Liberals but are not willing to throw their support behind the NDP. The Greens are like a novelty act. There’s no harm in voting for them even if you don’t like their platform since they have no hope of forming government. A vote

for the Greens can be a protest vote of sorts. The Greens almost won a federal by-election recently in Victoria, which was supposed to be a cakewalk for the NDP. The party attracted support from the other three main federal parties. In fact, the capital region is fertile ground for the Greens and it is where the party will likely post its strongest showing. In Saanich North, the Green candidate is Adam Olsen, a popular local councillor and small businessman. The word is he has ex-B.C. Liberal political staffers volunteering for him, while the B.C. Liberals can’t even find a candidate. In Oak Bay-Gordon Head, noted climate change scientist Andrew Weaver is the star Green Party candidate. In both ridings, a lot of votes would have to swing away from the B.C. Liberals and go to the Greens for either candidate to win, but it’s certainly possible. I’d be surprised if the B.C. Conservatives have the same potential attractiveness as the Greens. But in some pockets of the province the party will likely do better than it did in 2009, to the detriment of the B.C. Liberals. Add it up, and there’s a decent chance of anywhere from two to a half dozen seats going to someone not running for the NDP or the B.C. Liberals.

BY PHILIP RAPHAEL Special to the News

Seven Richmond celebrities and their dance instructors have been busy tip-toeing their way across the hardwood since early January to help raise funds for the Richmond Hospice Association. And over the coming few weeks, they will be perfecting their routines for the second annual Dancing With the Richmond Stars event March 2 at The Grand Ballroom in the Ironwood area. “Coming from my experience in last year’s event, this is crunch time,” said area Laura Van Sprang, the winner in 2012. “So, I am seeing a lot more people in the ballroom, more often.” It’s all in good fun for an important cause, she explained. “It’s very touching and heart-warming to see how much time and effort people put into this. It’s also them (competitors) putting themselves on the line. It’s not easy to learn the dance. And it’s not easy to put yourself out there in front of your whole community.” Van Sprang, who is a funeral director and embalmer at the Richmond Funeral Home, as well as the hospice association’s events coordinator, will be back to perform a support dance on the night and hand over the trophy to the winner. One of the seven competitors who has been paired with an instructor, just like in the reality TV show Dancing With the Stars,

lenging for non-profit organizations. And when she learned what the Central Okanagan Hospice Association had done several years ago by starting its own Dancing with the Stars event, she immediately seized the opportunity to develop a Richmond version. “They’ve been doing it in the Okanagan for five years and have raised an enormous amount of money,” Miller said, adding last year’s total was around $300,000. “We’re excited to move forward and build on what they’ve done. It’s great, exciting and fun for everyone. And we’ve learned we can put the words fun and hospice in the same sentence. And that’s a hard thing to do.” “From a management point of view and strategy for a non-profit, it’s about time we had some new ideas on how to raise money. And this is a great, new idea,” said Patko. Three celebrity judges (MLA Linda Reid, media personality Kayce White, and Blundell Elementary school principal Don Dixon) will determine the overall winner. There is also a People’s Choice award handed out to the dancer who has raised the most funds. The money goes towards the association’s programming. “We offer grief support, support for those at end of life and their families and friends,” said Miller. “And what that means is we provide trained and qualified volunteer visitors to the palliative unit at the hospital, to hospice house on No. 4 Road, the residential care facilities in our community, and private

A time to consider roots: Family Day On every Boxing Day as far back as I can remember, my maternal aunts, uncles and cousins have gathered not just to celebrate Christmas but also family. This year was the first time my dear Auntie Marj wasn’t there. She passed away on Jan. 5 after living a full life as a wife, mother, sister, aunt and grandmother. Like my mother, she leaves behind a legacy of love that began in childhood and continues in future generations. When my mom was nine, her widowed mother died, leaving all nine children orphaned. The older siblings, including Aunt Marj, Mamie and Hazel decided not to abandon the younger ones who would likely have been moved to orphanages. In everyday acts of courage and love, all the brothers and sisters were clothed, fed and educated. They had committed their lives to looking after one another. I believe my aunts were my mom’s best friends. That’s why my Mom always told us of the importance of family. She would remind me as a teen more interested in going out with friends. “Your friends may come and go,” she said, “but this family will always be here for you.” She was right of course.

HEALTHWISE

As we celebrated our province’s first Family Day on Monday, we have to recognize that families come in many forms. We have single parents, same-sex parents, adoptive parents and blended families. We have couples married or not married, some with pets but without children. I consider them all families when two or more people come together in love and create a home. It is in our family relationships that we learn to love, accept one another, give and receive graciously. Families are as imperfect as we all are, and I know of many who have grown up with conflict, neglect or abuse. With courage and assistance, some have overcome their difficult beginnings and created more meaningful relationships and homes in adulthood. Instead of treating this first Family Day as just a new statutory holiday, I hope you reflected on your own family of origin and your family today.

Wasiela also provided medical guidance including HIV education — something of lifesaving importance in a community where it is estimated that one in three people have contracted the disease. Despite the personal risks, effort and expense, this volunteer project was a life-long dream for Wasiela. “There were more highlights to this trip than I could count,” she said. “There was one special needs boy with microcephaly in my classroom who hadn’t spoken in 10 years and when I pushed him on the swing in the playground he counted to 10 for me and brought me and the teacher to tears.” Wasiela came across the foundation online and went through a rigorous application process, including a full criminal record check and fingerprinting.

the way in which the RRSP is invested. Generally speaking, bonds and other interest-bearing investments are best kept within an RRSP to remain tax sheltered while the most favorably taxed investments, such as those that produce capital gains and dividends, should be outside the RRSP. Asset allocation relative to age is an important consideration. According to the BMO study, sixty per cent of Canadian investors have specific time frames or target dates to reach their financial goals and 89 per cent agree that it is important to hold investments that evolve over time, becoming less risky as key life events approach. While that may be what the majority believes, only 49 per cent invest accordingly. At any stage of life retirement planning requires careful thinking.

The Friendliest Dealers and Best Deals in Town

Year of the Snake 2013 CELEBRATION

Mandarins symbolize good luck For the first time, an eightfoot tall mandarin orange tree is being displayed CHINESE NEW YEAR in City Hall this year for the Chinese New Year celebration. In the Chinese language, the pronunciation of “mandarin orange” is very similar to “fortune and luck” and the golden colour of the fruit symbolizes positive energy and prosperity. It is a tradition for Chinese families to display a mandarin orange tree, among other flowers, at home during the Lunar New Year celebrations. It is very much like the tradition of putting up a Christmas tree during Christmas time in Western culture. Thanks to the generosity of Garden in Garden Nursery, you will find the mandarin orange tree in the galleria at City Hall over the next two weeks. Come and take a look at the tree. You may also make a wish for your family and loved ones. Richmond is undoubtedly blessed by the richness of cultural diversity in our community.

SCOTLAND

Replacing Scotch for literature in Edinburgh BY HANS TAMMEMAGI Special to the News

Sipping a latté in Elephant House, the coffee shop where a destitute J.K. Rowling penned her first Harry Potter novel, I realized I had gone astray. Scotch whisky had lured me to Edinburgh, but instead I found myself immersed in literature. I was moved by Rowling’s perseverance, and while wiping away a moustache of cream, silently vowed to tackle my secret goal of writing a book. Meandering through Old Town along the Royal Mile that joins Edinburgh Castle with the Palace of Holyrood, I stumbled upon the Writers Museum, a rambling old house accessed via a medieval close, aka a laneway. The museum celebrates three internationally renowned Scottish writers: Sir

The Edinburgh Rocket honours writer Sir Walter Scott.

City has history soaked in, not only the famous liquor, but storytelling as well Walter Scott (Ivanhoe, Lady of the Lake), Robert Louis Stevenson (Treasure Island, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) and Robbie Burns (Auld Lang Syne, Scots Wha Hae), who is widely regarded as Scotland’s national poet. Portraits of the authors gazed down from the walls and dusty original manuscripts peered up from glass cases. I could feel their talent permeating the room, and hoped some would rub off. Back on the Royal Mile, I couldn’t help but notice an ornate Victorian Gothic statue piercing the skyline to the north. “Aye, ’tis the Edinburgh’s Rocket, the world’s tallest statue to honour an author,” a passerby told me. A constant reminder of Edinburgh’s literary heritage, it commemorates Sir Walter Scott. Farther down the street, I came upon the Scottish Storytelling Centre, where the curator explained “the story is told eye to eye, mind to mind and heart to heart.” The centre celebrates Scotland’s strong oral tradition by hosting and encouraging storytelling shows throughout the city. The evening before, I had attended Tall Tales Oscar and listened to the silliest yarns, told with deadpan conviction and invariably ending with an unexpected, but hilarious punch line. For lunch, I sought out the Oxford Bar, the pub of choice for the gruff Inspector Rebus in Ian Rankin’s internationally acclaimed murder mysteries. Savouring an ale and a wee dram, I wondered if Rebus had sat on my stool while pondering a crime. I scribbled some notes for my book on a napkin. At the Scottish National Library, the world centre for the study of Scots and Scotland and custodian of more than seven million books, I was led into the stacks.

New Zealand next stop for softball standout

Bryan Abrey playing for Canada at upcoming World Championships then will suit up for New York based club team BY M ARK B OOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

Don’t tell Bryan Abrey there are limited opportunities for elite men’s softball players living in B.C. On Saturday, the 25-year-old from Richmond leaves with his Canadian teammates for International Softball Federation (ISF) Men’s World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand. He is one of just two B.C. natives on the 17-player national team roster. When Abrey isn’t wearing Canadian colours, he suits up for the New York Gremlins — the number one ranked senior men’s team in North America last year. The Gremlins typically play in seven to eight highprofile tournaments per season and pay for Abrey to fly out from Vancouver and join them at each one of them. He recently returned from a tournament in Florida and the Dominican Republic is up next after World Championships. Softball Canada is covering all of his expenses for his near month long stay in New Zealand. The team returns home March 11. Who says being one of the country’s top softball players doesn’t offer a pretty attractive career. “It’s all about being able to get the time off,” said Abrey, who works as an operations coordinator for Seaspan Ferries. “There is nothing in B.C. to play softball at a high level. The New York team gives me an outline of their schedule and I make it work.” Growing up, Abrey was arguably the best all-round athlete in Richmond with a hectic year-round schedule he somehow managed. He

thrived on the ball diamond — in both baseball and fastpitch — and also played top level rep hockey for Richmond Minor. If that wasn’t enough, he was a key contributor to the McMath Wildcats senior boys basketball team which reached the provincial semifinals in his Grade 12 year. “I just liked to stay active,” said Abrey. “Sitting still was never really my thing. A lot of the time I would have hockey and go straight to basketball or have basketball and go straight to hockey. In the summer, it was crazy with all the ball tournaments. “My parents were great. They would drive me here and there.” Abrey developed into a dominant enough softball player to be part of the junior national team program in 2005. However, the opportunity also opened the door for him to continue his baseball career south of the border. Through the Canadian team coaching staff, he was invited to play at Merced College. Abrey thrived at the California school, earning All-NorCal Team honours for two straight seasons and a scholarship to LewisClark Stage College in Idaho. He enjoyed a stellar career for the Bulldogs and graduated with degrees in kinesiology and coaching/ sports administration, earning Academic All-American honours in the process. He briefly explored continuing his baseball career by trying out with independent pro teams before coming home and turning his attention back to softball. He was part of Canada’s 40-man roster when he was recruited

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Bryan Abrey is in high demand these days after returning from a baseball scholarship down south to resume his softball career. He will be playing for Canada at the upcoming World Championships in Auckland. to play for New York last year, then made his senior team debut at last fall’s Pan American Championships in Columbia where Canada won gold with a 4-1 victory over Venezuela in the final. The team’s starting catcher produced a key hit in the sixth inning that helped erase a 1-0 deficit. “I had never been to

Columbia before and this will be my first time in New Zealand. The travel has been pretty good,” smiled Abrey. He added the adjustment from baseball to softball is not an easy one, especially for hitters. “It takes a while to get use to it. In softball, a rise ball moves just as much as a baseball but (the

pitcher) is 20 feet closer. It’s coming at you a lot quicker.” Canada was third at the previous World Championships in 2009. That tournament was won by Australia, with New Zealand earning silver. “Clearly we want gold. That’s our expectations,” Abrey added. “Our pool is

tough with teams like New Zealand and Japan but we feel like we can come out of it number one.” Abrey is one of the youngest players on the national team and should still be wearing Canadian colours for another future high-profile event — the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto.

Clarke in Mexico with U20 national men’s team

MARK BOOTH/RICHMOND NEWS

McMath Wildcats Marc-Andre Hervieux works his way towards the basket during action against the host Delta Pacers at the recent Bill Kushnir Memorial Tournament. The Wildcats will be the team to beat this week at what promises to be a very competitive Richmond Senior Boys Basketball Championships. As many as six teams could be in the mix, including defending champion Palmer. The tournament concludes with the championship game on Friday at 5 p.m. at Burnett secondary.

Richmond’s Caleb Clarke has joined the national team in Mexico City for a week long training camp leading up to the 2013 CONCACAF U20 Championships which take place Feb. 18 to March 2. The Vancouver Whitecaps forward had an impressive previous stint for Canada back in November when he scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Costa Rica to conclude a training camp in Florida. Whitecaps midfielder Bryce Alderson and Residency member Yassin Essa are also among the 23 players in Mexico City. Up for grabs at the CONCACAF Championships will be four spots for the confederation at the FIFA U20 World Cup Turkey 2013 in June. The event is taking place in Puebla, Mexico. “It will be a difficult tournament,” predicts U20 head coach Nick Dasovic. “Our goal for now is to make it to the quarter-final match which will give us a oneoff chance to qualify for the FIFA U20 World Cup. “Whether we enter the match

as a first or second seed from our group, we will deal with that.” Clarke, 19, is a product of the Richmond Youth Soccer Association and one of the original members of the Whitecaps Residency Program. He signed his first professional contract last April and made his Major Soccer League debut in August against Dallas. To qualify for the FIFA U20 World Cup, Canada will need to finish in either first or second place in Group B that also includes Cuba and Nicaragua. If the Canadians are successful in qualifying for the knock-out stages, they will have a quarter-final match against a team from Group A with a spot at Turkey 2013 on the line. Dasovic stated that his team will be buoyed by an increased number of players playing in professional environments both at home and abroad, but also cautioned that in the same way that Canada has improved its player development structure in recent years – the same can be said about many of the competing nations.

Richmond’s Chandler Bradley won’t have a long commute when he begins his junior lacrosse career two years down the road. The talented right hander was taken seventh overall by the Delta Islanders in the recent B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse midget draft. “Our number one goal going into the draft was getting some offensive players for the right side and we’re very happy he was available,” said Islanders head coach Shaun Springett. Bradley played for Richmond Lacrosse’s midget program last season and also made an impression as a call-up player, managing eight points in three games with the Richmond Intermediate “A” Roadrunners. He also is a standout field lacrosse
