Second local charged in riot

Suspicious fire guts house Martin van den Hemel photo This empty twostorey house at 9780 Alberta Rd. was gutted by fire Thursday night. Fire crews were called to the scene around 9:30 p.m. and were greeted by flames shooting through the upper floors of the house. There were no injuries.

Staff Reporter Just how much power does the City of Richmond have to bar a proposal to build a jet fuel pipeline under the middle of the city? According to a University of B.C. law professor, the city doesn’t have a leg to stand on even if the pipeline was built directly beneath city-owned land. Anthony F. Sheppard, a real property law professor at UBC’s law department, said as long as the pipeline doesn’t impact a property owner’s “reasonable use and enjoyment” of the land, there’s nothing

barring the pipeline’s underground construction. A person who owns a piece of property in theory also owns the airspace directly above it, as well as the ground below it. But that landowner’s real property rights only extend as far as the reasonable use and enjoyment of that land, he said. So as far as the pipeline running beneath city-owned rights of way, those “reasonable uses” might only extend as far as a few feet deep, in order to lay sewer, water and electrical lines, as well as what’s necessary to support the road bed. Similarly, while many local property

owners may not like airplanes flying directly overhead, as long as the planes don’t buzz their rooftops, that’s permissible. But Sheppard noted he’s not an expert in constitutional law, and there may be other avenues to explore along those lines. Meanwhile, VAPOR, the local group opposing the pipeline plan, expressed its disappointment with the recentlyannounced preferred Highway 99 route by the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation. “All the other highly unacceptable aspects of their proposal such as the frequent oil tanker traffic to an offloading terminal and storage in a tank farm which poses a great risk to the Fraser River and its estuary, the large populations of fish and wildlife and property and public safety has been left unmodified,” said Carol Day, chair of Vancouver Airport Pipeline Opposition for Richmond., in a news release.

Richmond’s Camille Cacnio has become the latest local resident charged in connection with the June 2011 Stanley Cup riot. Vancouver police announced Monday that the Crown has approved two charges against Cacnio, 21: participating in a riot, and breaking and entering. The Crown has now approved 77 charges against 30 rioters. A scholarship winner in 2007 while she attended J.N. Burnett Secondary, Cacnio posted an apology online after the riot, admitting that she’s the young woman pictured at the 1:33 mark of a YouTube video (tinyurl.com/ CacnioRiot). In the video she’s seen leaving Black and Lee Tuxedos, a store which she admitted stealing two pairs of pants from. She explained that she was caught up in “mob mentality,” was seeking an “adrenaline rush” and suggested her judgment was impaired by alcohol. See Page 3

Prosecutors see risk in TV trials Video may give defence ‘another weapon,’ says president of B.C. Crown Counsel Association

by Tom Fletcher Black Press

by Jeff Nagel Black Press B.C.’s plan to televise the trials of Stanley Cup rioters is causing concern among prosecutors, according to the president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association. Samiran Lakshman warned the planned video broadcasts—if approved by judges—could jeopardize the cases against those rioters or others yet to be charged. “Not every witness will want to be broadcast on YouTube and the 6 o’clock news,” Lakshman said. He said the spectre of video trials could open a new avenue for defence lawyers to overturn a conviction, particularly if a witness who might have bolstered an accused’s defence Seung-Chul Baik file photo refuses to testify. “We want to make sure we don’t Rioters destroy police cruisers following Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final last June. in any way endanger the prosecution or dissuade people from coming Judges will have to carefully weigh hurting for money?” There remains a real and growing forward.” the implications of allowing a webLakshman said prosecutors also risk that more criminal cases will be If courts approve the video broad- streaming camera in the court. want to protect their own privacy thrown out because of unreasonable cast of an accused who objects, “the Limiting the broadcasts to the and he predicts most of them will delays, he said. defence may have another weapon As of Sept. 30, more than 2,500 sentencing stage—af- refuse to be captured on video at in their arsenal that the ter rioters have either riot proceedings. adult criminal cases had been waitright to a fair trial has pleaded guilty or been “They have every right to say no,” ing longer than 18 months, up from been violated.” convicted—may be one he said. “None of the prosecutors 2,038 in September of 2010.

‘Intoxicated perspective’ From Page 1

BCGEU begins contract talks

“At the time, being a part of the riot was simply to fulfill the adrenaline rush I was looking and hoping for— an adrenaline rush that I previously got from post-winning games... “In the same way that everybody enjoyed collectively showing pride in our team, it was enjoyable to express my disappointment in a collective manor [sic].” She went on to write: “I had no intentions of defiling the city. I love Vancouver as much as you do—I’ve lived her since I was 7 months old. But in my immature, intoxicated perspective all I saw was that the riot

was happening, and would continue happening with or without me, so I might as well get my adrenaline fix.” On Monday police announced 21-year-old Dustin Anderson of Burnaby has also been charged with participating in a riot and assault stemming from the events of June 15. That night, following the Vancouver Canucks’ Game 7 loss to the Boston Bruins, a riot broke out in the downtown core of Vancouver. Dozens were injured, including several police officers, and rioters caused millions of dollars in property damage.

The B.C. government begins contract talks with one of its largest unions this week, and the union wants a raise as most of its members come off a two-year wage freeze. The B.C. Government and Service Employees Union represents 25,000 direct provincial employees, including prison guards, deputy sheriffs, liquor store staff, social workers, probation officers, biologists, lab workers and nursing and other staff at facilities including Riverview Hospital and Forensic Psychiatric Hospital. Another group of BCGEU workers in health, community social service and other jobs with contracted agencies are set to begin talks in February. About 85 per cent of all union members have contracts expiring in 2012. “We’ll be going to every table determined to get wage improvements,” BCGEU president Darryl Walker said. In bargaining conferences held with union members in December, members also want improvements to benefits and job security. As the union and the provincial bargaining agency exchange opening proposals, the B.C. government is looking at a $3.1 billion operating deficit for this year. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon has repeatedly indicated that there will be no budget increases to pay higher wages. In its October throne speech, the government said any raises would have to be funded by “cooperative gains” that create savings elsewhere. That declaration is similar to the “net zero” mandate in effect for the last two years. Most provincial unions accepted the two-year freeze, but the B.C. Teachers’ Federation has refused and withdrawn non-essential services since September. Walker has suggested that opening more government liquor stores on Sundays could generate additional revenues to fund a raise for BCGEU staff. And he isn’t ruling out strike action.

Independent analysis needed, mayor says From Page 1

The altered proposal, which now proposes to route the underground pipeline beneath Highway 99, is “totally unacceptable,” Day said in a press release. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said Tuesday the new highway route doesn’t change the city’s position. “We are opposed to the entire concept. We don’t want tankers coming up the river.” Brodie said he believes there’s a conflict of interest in the water side analysis of the project that’s being done Port Metro Vancouver. The analysis will look at the risks associated with an offloading and storage facility, but Brodie said it’s being conducted by the eventual landlord, Port Metro Vancouver, which stands to profit from the project should it be given approval. “Surely we need an independent party doing the waterside analysis.”

Pipeline proposal

“We are opposed to the entire concept. We don’t want tankers coming up the river.” - Malcolm Brodie Meanwhile, the consortium has also provided the city and the province’s environmental assessment office with a “third-party independent analysis” of the options currently under consideration. Golder Associates

•Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation has submitted a revised application to the BC Environmental Assessment Office, seeking approval to build a jet fuel pipeline across Richmond connecting Riverport to Sea Island. •Proposed is a pipeline route along Highway 99—primarily the east side, 2.5 meters below the surface. •The VAFFC says the new route shortens the pipeline, offers greater separation to urban areas, results in a smaller construction footprint, requires fewer utility crossings and wouldn’t impact city streets if maintenance was required. •A public open house is planned for Jan. 28, but the venue has not yet been set. and Ausenco-Sandwell concluded that the option to build a jet fuel offloading terminal, develop a fuel tank farm, and build a 15-kilometre pipeline to Vancouver International Airport, had the “greatest number of indicators (80 per cent) rated as negligible or of minor concern.” Next, at 70 per cent, was the option to develop a new jet fuel tank and barge loading facility on the north shore of Burrard Inlet, with a barge unloading facil-

Firms conspired to Public input keep foam prices sought on fare high hikes A foam production plant in Delta was part of a decade-long price-fixing scheme that has ended with the firms involved paying $12.5 million in fines. Valle Foam Industries, which also runs a plant in Brampton, Ontario, and Montreal affiliate Domfoam International pleaded guilty to conspiring with competitors to fix the price of polyurethane foam products made at their three plants. The products are mainly used in carpet underlay, furniture and bedding. It was the first conviction under Canada’s amended conspiracy law, which was updated in 2010 to tighten the law regarding collaboration and cartels. “This investigation highlights the Bureau’s reinvigorated mandate to stop consumer harm caused by price-fixing, and to secure significant fines for these serious criminal offences,” Competition Commissioner Melanie Aitken said. A rival foam producer based in Toronto blew the whistle on the scheme in early 2010, gaining immunity from prosecution. The Competition Bureau launched a nearly two-year investigation that included the use of wiretaps, several searches and the seizure of thousands of documents. More firms are still under investigation for their participation in the cartel. “We’re grateful for the actions of the Competition Bureau,” said Bruce Cran, president of the Consumers Association of Canada, adding he hopes to see regulators investigate more crooked pricing schemes in other industries. —Jeff Nagel

Public input is being sought on an application by TransLink to hike transit fares next year. Under the proposal, which would generate $48 million for the transit authority, all fares would rise. Cash fares would rise by 25 cents for one zone and 50 cents for two or three zones. Faresaver tickets would cost $2.50 to $5 more for books of 10. Comments can be e-mailed to comments@translinkcommission.org by Feb. 15.

Holiday impaired suspensions, charges up Legal issues with B.C.’s new drinking and driving law didn’t slow down police road checks and suspensions during the holiday season. From Nov. 1 to Jan. 2, RCMP in the Lower Mainland imposed penalties on 399 drivers, compared to 310 in the same period of 2010. Those totals include impaired driving charges, 90-day vehicle impoundments and administrative licence suspensions. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Jon Sigurdson ruled Nov. 30 that parts of B.C.’s new roadside penalty system infringed on drivers’ constitutional right to defend themselves. But just before Christmas he suspended his ruling for six months, allowing police to resume applying their strictest roadside penalties, including 90-day licence suspensions and impounding vehicles for 30 days. —Tom Fletcher

B.C.’s new top cop vows change Response to sexual harassment allegations not timely enough, says Callens

New policies will require strict timelines for investigation and action on harassment complaints, he said. Callens agreed the harassment disclosures have been the latest in a barrage of blows to the RCMP in this province—ranging from Robert Dziekanski’s death at Vancouver airport to missteps in the investigation of serial killer Robert Pickton—that have pummelled the morale of officers. Despite that, he said public confidence in the force does not

by Jeff Nagel Black Press The new head of the RCMP in B.C. is vowing to transform the culture of the force to ensure sexually harassed officers can safely blow the whistle on their tormenters and get help. Assistant Commissioner Craig Callens took over as RCMP ‘E’ division commander last month amid a series of allegations of harassment by female officers that began late last year when former B.C. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Catherine Galliford went public with her own experience of being hounded by men in the force. Most female officers he’s heard from report a “very positive” experience in the RCMP, Callens said, but that doesn’t change his view that much more must be done. “Frankly, one case is too many,” he said in an interview with Black Press. “I’m not persuaded that our response to these sexual harassment allegations has been timely enough or has been fulsome enough.” Callens is seeking advice from throughout the force to improve the reporting process so abused officers can be confident their complaints will be acted upon and they won’t face retribution. He said he’s interested not just in rooting out harassers, but also examining the response of those in the force, particularly immediate superiors, who have allowed it to fester under their watch. “I will be equally interested in what kind of information the supervisor or the local leader or officer-in-charge of the detachment had and what he did about it.”

He said the biggest challenge that has emerged for police in recent years have been landmark court decisions that now require vastly more paperwork to disclose every facet of an investigation to the defence. “Our investigators are required to disclose every piece of paper, every computer entry, every query and inquiry they conduct over the course of that investigation,” Callens said. “That has dramatically changed the way we need to approach investigations.”

“I will be interested in what kind of information the supervisor or the local leader or officer-in-charge of the detachment had and what he did about it.” - Craig Callens

deserve to be eroded because an overwhelming majority of RCMP officers “do an exceptional job every day.” Callens also suggested Mounties don’t get enough credit, either for their greater transparency in recent years of disclosing incidents of officer misconduct, or for their support of external civilian oversight of police in those cases. “We embrace and look forward to external review and civilian oversight,” he said, adding he could not be more pleased that Richard Rosenthal has been named as B.C.’s first civilian police investigator. Rosenthal is known for busting corrupt police in Los Angeles. Callens, a third-generation Mountie with 26 years in the force, comes to the province’s top post after working in general duty, major crime and federal drug enforcement.

Callens said the RCMP will intensify its push in 2012 to lead a province-wide gun and gang strategy involving all RCMP detachments and municipal forces. He said that will build upon the creation of additional Combined Forces Special Enforcement Units—which coordinate antigang investigations—in Prince George and Kelowna. But he also argued B.C.’s antigang strategy of the last couple of years has been “very effective,” noting the number of gang-related murders fell from its peak of 35 in 2009 to 18 in 2010 and less than 10 last year. Long-term success against gang crime will depend more on education and prevention, as well as rehabilitation of offenders, he said. Callens said the single biggest area of success in recent years for the Mounties has been their pursuit of intelligence-based crime reduction initiatives. “In almost all of our communities we have seen significant reductions in crime.”

EDITORIAL: A needed confidence boost

T

he anti-sexual-harassment stance taken by new Assistant Commissioner Craig Callens—head of the RCMP in B.C.—is a welcome indication that winds of change are sweeping through the force. Late last year, when B.C. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Catherine Galliford shared her own allegations of being harassed by male colleagues, it was the cue for a series of similar allegations from other female officers. Callens, RCMP E Division commander, is quick to say most female officers he has heard from have had a positive experience in the force. But when an officer as highly placed as Callens says he is “not persuaded” the force has responded fully or quickly enough to

Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers.

allegations of sexual harassment— and that “one case is too many”— it’s a telling statement indeed. On this issue, the presence of smoke has seldom been acknowledged as evidence of fire by the force. The appointment of Richard Rosenthal as B.C.’s first civilian police investigator suggests that

The sense that an organization can close ranks and refuse to acknowledge wrongdoing undermines every bit of valuable work such an organization does. Loss of confidence is a poison that can eat away at the fabric of any organization in which the public reposits its trust. No amount of spin-doctoring or presentation of media-friendly photo-ops can take away the feeling that something is wrong. Glibness, aloofness, or an unwillingness to acknowledge that there could be a problem doesn’t help either. Taking responsibility, as Callens demonstrates, is about more than damage control, or never admitting weakness or past errors. And, as he seems to understand, that can only inspire more public confidence in the long run. — Peace Arch News (Black Press)

CRAIG CALLENS

the province’s police forces are beginning to realize that greater transparency may be more of a friend than an enemy. Callens has also sent a message he is prepared to make changes to the ‘culture’ of the RCMP, both by making sure officers who allege harassment are able to report it without fear of retribution, and by suggesting he will be taking a close look at the actions of immediate superiors of complaining officers to make sure incidents are not swept under the carpet. He is, of course, engaged in his own damage-control mission—to rebuild public confidence in the force. As he notes, most officers do an exceptional job, but large organizations such as the RCMP can’t afford to ignore public perceptions, even if they prove—by and large— erroneous.

ow is B.C.’s economy doing? This question occupies a great deal of time in our political debate. But since that debate is mostly an exercise in selecting facts and passing blame back and forth, it’s difficult to tell. Former premier Gordon Campbell set out to change that in 2001 with the establishment of the B.C. Progress Board. Independent directors established six “core targets,” environmental, health and social indicators as well as economic measures, and tracked them annually with comparisons to other provinces. This created a 10-year database that doesn’t exist anywhere else. But it hasn’t exactly been flattering, a sign that it has been kept free of political interference. Premier Christy Clark’s recent decision to replace the Progress Board has sparked another round of political blame-storming.

The NDP opposition was accustomed to jumping on the annual rankings and trumpeting the ones that cast the B.C. Liberals in a bad light. Predictably, they portrayed the remake of the board as an effort to sweep embarrassing results under the rug. Media often focus on the political horse race rather than details of dull old policy. When the board’s annual reports came out, they typically covered the political fight and glossed over the findings. The key flaw with the Progress Board turned out to be its emphasis on provincial rankings. B.C. ranked first for the entire 10 years in health and environmental conditions, and near the bottom in a complex measure of “social condition” that was often oversimplified as poverty. In most measures, including economic ones, the rankings barely changed in a decade. In his final report, board chair Gerry Martin noted that B.C.’s improvements in economic output and income were significant, but didn’t move them up the rankings because other provinces had similar success. Big recoveries in Saskatchewan and Newfoundland meant that B.C. sometimes slipped in the relative rankings despite major gains. Martin noted that on crime, “initial performance was so poor that B.C.’s best-in-country improvements over several years were needed just to move B.C. to about average.”

Bob Richmond photo via flickr Low-birth-weight babies reduced B.C.’s Social Condition Index ranking.

(There’s an example of how independent this board has been.) Crime is part of the board’s “Social Condition Index,” along with lowbirth-weight babies and long-term unemployment. This has been a favourite of opposition critics, because B.C. started low and slipped lower. But they won’t tell you the whole story, through the NDP 1990’s as well as the B.C. Liberal 2000’s: “B.C. ranked sixth in the Social Condition Index in 1990, improved to third in 1993, but deteriorated through the rest of the 1990s and into the next decade such that it sank

to last place for 2001 and 2002,” the final report says. “Improvements between 2002 and 2007 saw B.C. reach fifth place in 2006 and 2007, but rank changes on low birth weights and long-term unemployment brought B.C. to seventh in 2008 and ninth in 2009.” Does this mean the NDP government of the 1990s did a bad job, or that the B.C. Liberals did better and then screwed up? It could be spun that way, but there are external factors involved. The B.C. Progress Board didn’t just do rankings. Its policy suggestions were implemented in regulatory reform, energy self-suffi-

ciency, creating community courts and UBC Okanagan, and proceeding with the Site C dam. Martin notes that the successor organization, the Jobs and Investment Board, will carry on the performance monitoring and “hold government’s feet to the fire,” in particular on its ability to attract investment. It’s time to stop arguing about the level of poverty and find new ways to alleviate it.

letters The real problem with housing affordability Editor: Re: “Assessments give us pause for thought,” Editorial, Jan. 6. Your editorial complains that “wealthy offshore buyers” of Richmond homes means young homebuyers are “forced to go elsewhere” to find affordable housing. You further suggest that the foreign wealthy buyers are not “relying on income in Canada.” How do you know? I would bet that many of these so-called foreign buyers have created businesses in Richmond that buy advertising in the Review. And who cares about their country of origin anyway? My family arrived in Canada in the 17th century, but I don’t think that entitles me to buy a home before a newcomer does. Do you? Lets review what happens when somebody buys a house in Richmond. The local seller spreads the money in the economy. The buyer either renovates or rebuilds. Renovation is a $7 billion business in Canada. Home building is even bigger. Each industry creates thousands of high paying jobs. And these buyers pay the property taxes that are the city’s biggest source of revenue. Property taxes allow it to pay for the social programs to boost affordability that you want to see increased. The real affordability problem relates to the low incomes earned by young people. Half of the jobs created in B.C. last month were part time and over 80 per cent were in the service sector. Even if housing prices dropped by half in Richmond, the $25,000 a year donut shop clerk couldn’t afford a home. That’s the real story. Consider doing a regular feature on where the new jobs are in Richmond and what are the pay levels. That will shine light on the affordability problem. Victor Godin Richmond

Plenty of potential at McDonald Beach Editor: We just took a drive to McDonald Beach this weekend and noticed that the Cora Brown trail has been continued through. I’m not sure where it starts and not sure where it ends but it seems to me that a lot of money has been put into this project. We wondered where one parks their car so they can walk the trail. It sure would be a great idea if you could put an RV site out there as well and connect it all together. What a great thing for Richmond. Utilize some of that space for all to use. You already have the dock for boaters and a grounds keeper. Now just add camping out there as well. I have seen on a number of oc-

casions RV’s parked at McDonald beach for the day just so families can enjoy a day at the beach without leaving Richmond. You could have another Derby Reach Park to be proud of. One just has to take a drive to Langley down on the river and see such a fabulous park. Something for everyone. Right on the river. In the summer months you can’t even get a spot to camp because it is so popular with everyone from campers, hikers, fishermen and birdwatchers alike. Just a thought. We sure need something here in Richmond. And I almost forgot. We need a sani-station as well. Lisa Nowak Richmond

Columnist may know tomatoes, but does she know airplanes? Editor: Re: “Garden, garage good spots for winter stash,” Arzeena Hamir, Jan. 6. I read with disdain the condescending column referencing an inquiry about tomatoes growing in the wintertime in Vancouver. If I were the originator of that question, I would be some upset at the reply. If you want to know how self-centred the column is, count the I’s. I’m a retired air traffic controller, commercial pilot and an aviation safety investigator, having chaired over 200 boards of inquiry. I know nothing about tomatoes. With reference to Ms. Hamir, I wonder why an intelligent person who graduated from both high school and university and holds a steady job, doesn’t even know the stall speed of a Boeing 747 at 9,000 feet with gear down and full flap.

hile choosing to live, eat and exercise right should be our lifelong mantra, tangible achievements almost always involve setting several short-term goals. A proven way to ensure success is to set SMART goals: •S—speciďŹ c, signiďŹ cant; •M—measurable, meaningful, motivational; •A—agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, actionoriented; •R—realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented; •T—time-based, timely,

tangible, trackable. Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain muscle or just be ďŹ t, setting SMART goals will give you an edge by keeping you focused and motivated. 1. Be speciďŹ c about your ďŹ tness goal. Most of you might begin with a reasonable goal like, “I want to lose weight,â€? but if you really stop to think about it, that goal is not quite speciďŹ c enough. How much weight do you want to lose? When do you want to lose this by? How are you going to achieve that?

2. Make your goal measurable. Measuring your progress at frequent intervals is as important as setting the goal in the ďŹ rst place. This serves a two-fold purpose: ďŹ rst, you will know quite quickly whether what you are doing is working or not and you can take corrective action to keep yourself on track. However, the bigger advantage is the motivation that initial success will give you: nothing will boost your conďŹ dence and morale more than seeing your body change for the better in the mir-

ror every day. 3. Set attainable goals. What if instead of setting a ďŹ ve-to-ten-pounds-intwo-months goal, you decided instead to shed 30 pounds in one month? Not only is this unrealistic and virtually unattainable, but you are already setting yourself up for failure from the very beginning. Creating reasonable and attainable goals for yourself will propel you to success and keep that motivation factor alive as well. Think small, attainable targets. See Next Page

4. Be realistic. This is a little different from setting attainable goals. For example you might set yourself the attainable goal of a 32 inch waist in three months. That is certainly attainable if you are only a few inches away from your target. But when it comes to the methods you plan to use to achieve this goal, you might start to become unrealistic. “I will run every day for two hours” and “I will avoid all fried foods” are all examples of unrealistic methods that you have a slim chance of sticking to. 5. Stick to timely goals. Finally, no goal makes much sense unless you

attach a time frame to it. By limiting the time you have to accomplish a goal you have a fixed timetable to work with and the sense of urgency that will spur you to keep on track. By using the SMART technique of goal setting to your fitness regimen, you will see slow but steady incremental benefits. This will raise your morale which will in turn enable you to raise your own expectations even higher.

With daily beatings and humiliation, Moth struggles to survive until the day comes when she can escape. Moth ends up in the Bowery amongst pickpockets, freaks, whores and thieves. No sooner does she become a homeless waif in a tough part of town, than she’s befriended by Mae, a welldressed young woman around 15 years of age, who buys her lunch. Promising Moth a new start, one that comes with nice clothes, a warm bed, money in her pocket and food in her

become just another pretty young whore in Miss Everett’s stable. Her brothel, known as an “infant school,” is filled with teenage girls (all certified virgins) who are trained to be willing companions for rich gentlemen. When Moth is given beautiful clothes and taught how to act like a lady, she foolishly thinks that her life is on the upswing, when in fact, she’s next in line to be pimped out to the highest bidder.

When Moth meets Dr. Sadie, the selfless female physician who tends to the poor and the girls at the brothel, she experiences her first acts of kindness. Dr. Sadie repeatedly offers her a way out of Miss Everett’s clutches and a life of prostitution, but to no avail. Moth’s mind is made up. The premise of the story hinges on the unsettling myth that diseased men who have sex with young virgins will be cured of their sexually transmitted diseases. In The Virgin Cure, the story is expanded to include rich older men who prey on young girls just for sport, which is equally disgusting. Throughout the book, author McKay slips in little sidebars containing “facts” about the times and articles from local newspapers. These tidbits offer an entertaining addition to an already fascinating story. In a time and place where powerful people buy and sell the poor for their own gain, there can be no happy endings. However, despite the abuse, terror and pain Moth suffers in her short life, her story ends up on a surprisingly positive note. So take a peek inside this darkly tinted looking glass— you won’t be disappointed.

WEST COAST DENTURE CLINIC

by Don Fennell Sports Editor As the Steveston-London Sharks head into their annual invitational tournament (the Bob Carkner Memorial Basketball Classic) this week, coach Les Hamaguchi is looking for his high school senior girls’ team to be more assertive. “We’re getting good efforts from our players and they’re progressing the way I thought they would,” he said. But Hamaguchi believes the Sharks could potentially be better than they realize. “Against some of the better teams we’ve been both competitive and out of it,” he said. “It’s tough to simulate game conditions in practice, but for us to prevail at the end we’re obviously going to need to improve at a few different facets and be healthy down the stretch. We need to also be aware of foul situations and the intangibles that are going to make or break us.” The Sharks are coming off a solid showing at a holiday tournament in Las Vegas. While they won only one of four games, Hamaguchi for the most part liked the effort of his players led by perennial Grade 11 all-star point guard Anmol Mattu who was selected to the tournament all-star team. Mattu has been even more dominant against Canadian competition, averaging close to 30 points per game for the Sharks who are 8-2 against B.C. teams including 3-0 in league play. Both their losses (to Handsworth and Centennial) have been to provincially-ranked teams. Asking Mattu, who played for Canada’s U16 women’s team last summer in Mexico, to carry the entire load is unfair and unrealistic. But Hamaguchi

is confident that although only 10 players make up the Sharks’ roster, there is no shortage of talent. Grade 12 forward Lindsay O’Loughlin has always been a hard worker and has both the height (six feet) and skills to be a force at both ends of the floor. But Hamaguchi is hoping as she matures her game will become more consistent. “There have been games where she’s been a factor just with her rebounding and athleticism and she can make a big difference rebounding

and be a key to our break,” he said. With five of the 10 Sharks playing their first year of senior basketball, Hamaguchi also acknowledges the sharp learning curve that many are experiencing. But he believes that by creating their own identities they will maximize their potential, just as Mattu, who has played on the senior team since Grade 8, has done. “It can only benefit the team if everyone gets better,” he said. The No. 1-ranked AAA team in the province, Port Coquitlam’s Riverside Rapids will be favoured to retain their championship at the Bob Carkner Memorial Classic. Last year the Rapids, led by Grade 11 point guard Natalie Carkner (the tournament honours her late grandfather) and coached by her dad Mike, defeated Elgin Park 57-54 in the final game. This year, the Rapids will sport a split squad with half the team entered in the Centennial Centaurs’ Top 10 tournament which is also being played Thursday through Saturday. Steveston-London tips off tournament play at 8:15 p.m. Thursday versus the John Oliver Jokes, while Riverside debuts at 4:45 p.m. versus the Killarney Cougars. R.A. McMath Wildcats play Burnaby South in the first game at 3 p.m., while Terry Fox meets Hugh Boyd at 6:30 p.m. The Bob Carkner Memorial Basketball Classic also features a boys’ division featuring the host Sharks (tipping off at 3 p.m. versus John Oliver), H.J. Cambie (versus Windermere at 4:45 p.m.), Richmond (6:30 p.m. versus Valleyview) and Hugh Boyd (versus Norkam at 8:15 p.m.). Play continues all day Friday and Saturday, with the championship games at 5:30 p.m. (girls) and boys (7:15 p.m.) Saturday.

Sports Editor Only a half hour remained before kickoff and Stewart MacPherson appeared anxious. As the local organizing chair for the BC Soccersponsored provincial futsal championships, MacPherson was hoping a big crowd would take in Saturday night’s game featuring the Canadian men’s team at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Fans were relatively slow arriving, but by the time Richmond youth soccer player Dakota Chan began belting out an impressive version of O Canada, there were more than 200 fans in the stands. “It was important to me to have a good crowd on hand because we want to impress on the Canadian Soccer Association the support we can get for soccer here, and for them to say ‘Let’s come back and do more stuff here,’â€? he said. “At the same time we want to help make futsal more prominent.â€? The East versus West tilt was essentially an intra-squad game, part of an identiďŹ cation camp featuring players hoping to make up the 22-man squad that will represent Canada at the upcoming 2012 CONCACAF qualiďŹ er. Dates for that event have yet to be announced. Lorenzo Redwood, who coached the West squad, believes futsal will play a big part in the future success of Canada’s outdoor soccer teams. “If you look at the FIFA rankings most of the top

soccer-playing nations are also good in futsal ilke Russia, Argentina, Spain, Portugal and Brazil,â€? he said. “The nations whose development is suffering are not good in futsal. It’s not a coincidence.â€? Redwood says in Brazil, for example, all the professional players also began playing futsal as kids. “They play everywhere,â€? he said. “I think futsal helps a lot with the skills you use in outdoor soccer because in futsal you need to think fast. You’ve only got three seconds to make a play so you can’t waste time. When you get out on a full ďŹ eld it’s makes it a lot easier to dribble the ball.â€? BC Soccer president Charlie Cuzzetto chairs the Canadian Soccer Association’s futsal committee. He believes there is enormous potential to grow the game nationally. While previous efforts to establish futsal leagues failed, Cuzzetto is conďŹ dent there is now enough interest and support for a permanent network across the country. He believes leagues will begin popping up in every province and territory over the next year or two. MacPherson, who also helped to oversee the two-day provincial championship for U14 to U16 teams last weekend, said he anticipates there will soon be a provincial championship for futsal—perhaps as soon as 2013. There has also been talk of a national championship, he said.

Madewan at his best as Palmer beats No. 1 Windsor The RC Palmer Griffins high school senior boys’ basketball team pulled off a huge win at the Terry Fox Legal Beagle Tournament last weekend, upsetting provincial AA No. 1 Windsor Dukes 67-64. “The boys put a great 40 minutes together and showed they can play with any teams at the AA level,� said coach Paul Eberhardt. The Griffins had previously lost to Windsor 75-65 in early December.

The most recent game was close throughout, with neither team able to build more than a six-point lead. Palmer led 24-20 after one quarter, 39-33 at the half and 53-50 after three quarters. With Palmer nursing a onepoint lead with 45 seconds remaining, Jamie Madewan hit a huge three-pointer to give the Griffins a 66-62 lead. After Windsor made two free throws to cut it back to two points, Palmer made one of two free throws to go up 67-

64 with five seconds left and then defended well as Windsor’s last second three-point shot fell short. Madewan had 27 points and five assists for Palmer, while Chris Randing hit four treys on his way to 15 points. Tyler Debeer pulled down nine rebounds to go with seven points, while Ben Samy had six boards and nine points. “After struggling in the fourth quarter in some earlier games this season, the

boys showed great composure and executed very well down the stretch,� said Eberhardt. “Madewan continues to show why he is one of the best in BC with another allstar performance.� In other games at the Legal Beagle, the Griffins lost to AAA-ranked Walnut Grove Gaiters 74-58. After a slow start Palmer trailed 10-0 but a great second quarter put them back in charge and they led 39-36 at the half. The third quarter stayed close

but the Griffins gave up the lead and the Gaiters stepped up their defensive pressure in the fourth during which some bad turnovers cost the Griffins. Madewan led Palmer with 21 points and five assists, while JP Javier had 11 points and Samy had 10 points. Palmer’s final game in the tournament was against No. 4 AAA-ranked White Rock Christian Academy Warriors. The Warriors got up early and the Griffins were

unable to close the gap losing 89-67. Madewan once again led Palmer with 25 points and seven rebounds while Samy chipped in with 14 points and Javier had six assists. “I believe playing all of these top-ranked AAA teams will help us in the long run as you can only truly get better playing tough competition,� said Eberhardt. Palmer hosts the Maple Ridge Ramblers at 5 p.m. Friday.

KAPP, JOHN Born August 9, 1924, in Kindersley Saskatchewan, passed away peacefully on December 22 at the age of 87. John was predeceased by his loving wife of 40 years, Alice, in Feb 1991, and is survived by his three children; John (Debbie), Carey (Magda), and Janice (Blair), as well as grandchildren Keenan, Nicole, Kayla, Mark and Chloe. John grew up farming on the Prairies, and moved to the coast when he was 20, where he met the two loves of his life. Alice, his future wife, and fishing. In those early years, Alice managed the growing family and the Steveston home that John built and he headed out on the ‘Galaxie’ to fish the northern waters. He was proud of his profession, his boat and the lifelong friendships that fishing brought him over the course of 65 years on the water. A Celebration of life will be held on Saturday, February 18th from 12 noon - 3 p.m. at the Britannia Shipyard, 5180 Westwater Drive, Richmond, BC. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in John’s memory to The Canadian Cancer Society.

> Salsa for Socks at South Arm Community Centre

Around Town Amanda Oye

Fundraiser for fleet of foot

P

eople of all ages let loose and danced the morning away at South Arm Community Centre’s Salsa for Socks fundraiser last Saturday.

Over 80 participants packed into the community centre’s gym for a zumba and salsa class, followed by yoga. “We had a lot of new faces, which was great,” said Sharon Taylor, the fitness supervisor and co-ordinator at South Arm. Through sock and cash donations at the event 248 pairs of new socks were gathered for community members in need. The event was an extension of South Arm’s ongoing initiative to donate used shoes that was started in October 2010. “I knew that there was a need in Richmond,” Taylor said. The idea for Salsa for Socks came about when a reverend at St. Albans Church, where the shoes are taken to be distributed, mentioned that those they help need socks as well. “As soon as she said that I thought what kind of fitness event can we have?” Taylor said. She never imagined that the program would be as successful as it has been. “I am really proud of our patrons,” she said. South Arm’s next fitness fundraiser will be on Feb. 18, benefiting the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Amanda Oye covers the social scene for The Review. Reach her at amanda.oye@telus. net.
