MP won’t account for use of chauffeur Richmond MP Alice Wong says she will not violate privacy of her staff by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Richmond MP Alice Wong said she won’t give an accounting of her use of a personal driver in Ottawa despite the fallout from a CTV News report indicating federal ministers had racked up a six-figure bill for chauffeur overtime charges over a one-year period. “Due to privacy concerns I am unable to provide you with the private and personal details of my staff,” Wong said in an email response to The Richmond Review’s request. “With regards to the use of Ministerial drivers, we are always looking for ways to run the government at a reasonable cost to taxpayers, and this is an area that we are already looking at. ALICE WONG “However, I would like to point out that salaries and overtime from drivers employed by the public service are based on collective agreements with unions,” Wong said. When asked last week if she would disclose the total amount she spent on drivers, or the number of hours drivers were used, or the make and model of the vehicle she uses, Wong did not furnish any further information before The Review’s Tuesday afternoon deadline. Wong is minister of state for seniors, and as such had access to a vehicle and driver. Following a freedom of information query by CTV, it was revealed that federal ministers had racked up more than $600,000 in overtime between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011. Drivers had a salary of between $46,000 and $50,000. Overtime payouts averaged more than $20,000, with one minister ringing up a bill of more than $40,000. It was noted in the CTV News report that MPs already get access to free taxi chits. Wong, whose office is across the river from Ottawa in Gatineau, Que., uses a black Chrysler four-door sedan to get around town. “We are saving all the money by using this because I have my staff coming over as well,” Wong told CTV News.

‘A day without yoga is a day without sunshine’ Man fights depression with up to seven yoga classes each day by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

N

ormand Curley was sleeping 20 hours a day. Pills, counselling, group thera-

py—nothing helped the 56-yearold rise above a deep depression. But something drew him to a simple wooden-floor studio in Richmond that would change his life. In yoga Curley found a new path, a way out of depression and a passion that runs so deep he’s dedicating one year of his life to arm balances, backbends and inversions. So luring the lizard, sun salutation and pigeon pose, Curley takes up to seven classes each day at Y Yoga on Alderbridge Way.

“A day without yoga for me is a day without sunshine. That’s how I feel about it,” he said. “It has become something I eat, sleep and do all the time.” Born in Montreal, Curley suffered a serious workplace injury in 1989 while working as a carpenter. A tornado swept through a high-rise job site while Curley was working on the seventh floor. Doctors told Curley—who lost a finger in the accident—he wouldn’t be able to work in the field again.

Stark contrast among Richmonds in terms of obesity Local city marking healthy fortunes with Move for Health Day at Minoru Park Thursday by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Richmond residents are among the healthiest in Canada, but the situation in an American city with the same name stands in stark contrast. According to results of a study published in the latest Newsweek magazine, Richmond, Virginia ranks as America’s second “fattest city.” Memphis, Tenn. holds the unflattering rank of No. 1. Meanwhile, residents in Richmond, B.C. comprise Canada’s lowest obesity rate, and the city is marking the good health fortunes of locals tomorrow (May 10) at Move for Health Day at Minoru Park. “Richmond is known for being one of the healthiest communities in Canada. Our residents, on average, live longer than anywhere else in the nation,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie in a news release. “In Richmond, we all seem to share a passion for active lifestyles.” In Richmond, Virginia, however, just 50.2 per cent of the population exercises and just 58.1 per cent regularly eat produce. That’s

helped lead to an obesity rate of 29.4 per cent—six times that of Richmond, B.C.—and a diabetes rate of 9.9 per cent. Newsweek used data from Gallup’s WellBeing Index—a comprehensive study of American health and happiness published early 2011—to rank more than 50 metro areas with populations with a population of more than one million. Last year, a report from the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Canadian Institute for Health Information found just 5.3 per cent of Richmond, B.C.’s population is obese—compared to a nationwide average of about 25 per cent. Physical activity, diet and ethnicity all played roles in Richmond’s statistics, the study’s authors noted, along with access to recreational facilities, food retailers and affordable nutritious foods. The Child of the Fraser also leads Canada in life expectancy. The latest Statistics Canada study found local residents live an average of 83.4 years—four years longer than the national rate. •The Move for Health Day runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Minoru Park, where local service providers will be hosting information booths. A walk with the mayor begins at 11:45 a.m. with a zumba demonstration. Local organizations are also invited to participate in the Move for Health Day Community Challenge. Every hour of physical activity on Thursday can be tallied and e-mailed to moveforhealth@richmond.ca for a chance to win prizes.

The Richmond Olympic Oval had an official opening event for its new 13.4-metre-high climbing wall Tuesday morning. The wall is 6,400 square feet and features 31 routes to accommodate all skill levels, along with a wheelchair accessible rappel deck.

Four locals among 24 ITM model finalists Four Richmond residents are among the 24 finalists in the 2012 ITM-NSR modelling competition. The two dozen finalists strutted their stuff during a fashion show at Yaohan Centre last Friday, marking the first time male and female models took part in the competition. Richmond’s Veronica Wen, 16, Candace Bergmann, 21, and Jamie Hui, 23 were joined by male modelling hopeful Ken Ku, 16. Wen is a Grade 11 student from Elgin Park secondary and was born in China. Bergmann is currently studying psychiatric nursing at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Hui is in her third year of music studies at University of B.C. and was born in Hong Kong. Ku is a Hugh McRoberts Grade 10 student and was born in Taiwan. “We have a wonderful group of young men and women who are passionate about the fashion industry,” said Teresa Wat, president and CEO of CHMB AM1320. “ITM provides them with the skills and experience needed to pursue their dreams in becoming top international models.” The fourth annual Glamour Gala Dinner, which benefits the

Seafair Islanders captain Glenn Gawdin, 15, was selected fifth overall by the Swift Current Broncos in this week’s Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. Gawdin, a six foot one inch, 170 pound centre, led the Islanders in scoring with 13 goals and 10 assists in six games during the Rick Lapointe Bantam AAA tournament last December at the Victoria Racquet Club. Selected first overall by the Seattle Thunderbirds was Coquitlam center Mathew Barzal who played for the Burnaby Winter Club’s Bantam A team, and scored 39 goals and had 68 assists in 35 games. Burnaby’s Ty Ronning, son of Vancouver Canucks great Cliff Ronning, was selected 15th overall by the Vancouver Giants.

‘Urban park’ mulled for remote industrial site Riverport-area land located next to proposed jet fuel offloading facility by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A city-owned industrial site in Riverport could become Richmond’s newest park—right next to a possible wharf for jet fuel tankers. City hall issued a request for proposals last Friday seeking a civil engineering consultant to probe the land and revitalize its soils so the site could be repurposed—possibly, in part, as an “urban park,� the proposal document suggests. The 2.7-hectare (6.6-acre) site, at 14960 Triangle Rd., is located almost one kilometre northeast from the heart of the Riverport entertainment district. It’s also located next to a wharf owned by the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation, which is proposing

to receive jet fuel from Panamax-class tankers before pumping it through an underground pipeline to the airport. Panamax-class vessels are nearly ďŹ ve times the length of a hockey rink. The land is zoned for industrial use and contains no buildings. In the past, it was used to store and blend sand and soils. A large soil stockpile, along with residual piles of river sand, remain. The city is requesting the consultant complete the site remediation work by Nov. 30, 2013. Just what an “urban parkâ€? could look like isn’t clear; a city spokesperson didn’t return a call by press time. The city is still seeking a new location for an off-road bike park after council surrendered one in Steveston earlier this year to accommodate a riverside development and park. Just south of the city’s Triangle Road parcel is land that was subject of an ambitious proposal to build a 6,000seat amphitheatre in 2001. As part of the proposal, a parking lot would be converted into a pair of artiďŹ cial turf ďŹ elds for the fall and winter seasons. City ofďŹ cials came close to ďŹ nalizing a deal with a private partner to build it, but the proposal’s numerous challenges—a possible rail line extension, required road improvements—eventually killed it.

Police ďŹ nd grow-op A Delta Police investigation that began in South Delta led to a home on the 6500 block of No. 7 Road in Richmond on Saturday night, where police busted a marijuana grow op inside a house as a police helicopter ew overhead. More than 300 plants were found in two rooms in the house, but there were no arrests or charges. Delta Police Const. Ciaran Feenan said Delta Police were executing a search warrant at the home, but when police discovered the grow-op, they called Richmond Mounties to take over the investigation.

Maintaining mental health is a lot like staying physically fit From Page 1 After a year of operations and physiotherapy, he set out to find a new direction by embarking on a two-year sailing excursion in the Caribbean. He then moved to Richmond only to slowly experience the depressing effects of living without Caribbean sunshine. But through yoga, Curley said he has finally found the new path that’s eluded him for decades. Now 10 months into his yoga year, his energy has returned and he’s sleeping normally. His posture has improved, he’s stronger and Curley said his mind and body have again fallen into balance. “Ten months later, I can cope with rain, I can cope with lack of sunshine, I can cope with a lot of things I couldn’t prior to that.” Eight per cent of adults will experience major depression at some time in their lives, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association, which is marking Mental Health Week May 7 to 13.

“I can attest that with an open mind and a right attitude, yoga will provide you with all the tools required to face adversity.” - Normand Curley The association says maintaining mental health is a lot like staying physically fit—requiring daily effort—and exercise is one way to practice mental fitness. Curley entered Y Yoga with little knowledge of the discipline, figuring that going to a yoga studio was the urban equivalent to a monk entering a monastery. “I had no idea what it was. When I first got in there, I started in the morning and then I followed up, one class after the next, and after four or five classes in a row the teacher said, ‘Are you going to do this all day

long?’ I said ‘Isn’t everybody?’ “That’s when I discovered I was above the average when it came to attendance. But the fact is I felt good doing it.” He read as much as he could to learn more about what the “amazing philosophy” and decided discipline through regular attendance was priority No. 1. He’s tried all the yoga styles the studio offers, with only his part-time job as a security guard limiting his participating in classes each day. “Variety is what attracts me,” he said. “By doing a variety of it you have access to your entire mind and entire body.” Curley has high praise for his instructors, is grateful for the camaraderie of fellow inspiring yogis, and hopes others might be helped through his story. “I can attest that with an open mind and a right attitude, yoga will provide you with all the tools required to face adversity. To all people (facing) depression, there is hope in God—and yoga.”

“Deciding to become a RE/MAX agent over 23 years ago was not a difficult decision. I wanted to be partnered with a highly recognizable brokerage name with worldwide presence and local market dominance. I take pride in working with the most professional, successful real estate agents in the profession.”

Flood risk along Fraser Heavy snow in B.C.’s Interior poses a risk of flooding in the Fraesr Valley this year, but much will depend on the weather patterns in the weeks ahead. The entire Fraser River watershed has 29 per cent more snow than normal, as of the latest readings taken by the River Forecast Centre May 1.

eventy years is a long time, but it’s not too long to forget.

In 1942, Japanese-Canadians who lived on the B.C. coast were forcibly relocated to internment camps in the Interior and other parts of Canada, by order of the federal government. Their crime – some were suspected of being possible security leaks to the Japanese government, Canada had gone to war with Japan shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbour on Dec. 7, 1941, which brought the Americans into the Second World War. North Delta resident Tosh Suzuki found that there had never been a formal apology, or even a statement, in the B.C. Legislature about the harsh treatment given to the more than 20,000 law-abiding citizens of Japanese origin, many of whom were born in Canada. Some served with the Canadian forces in the First World War. He and his wife, Amy, were both interned as children. At the age of seven, he and his family were taken from their Pitt Meadows farm and sent to a camp in Manitoba, where they picked sugar beets until long after the war. His father’s 16-acre farm was sold off by the government for a fraction of its true value. His wife’s family was interned at Lemon Creek in the Kootenays, and she eventually moved to the New Denver internment camp that today is a fascinating museum, and the lone physical reminder of the internment camps. He approached the B.C. government through Advanced Education Minister Naomi Yamamoto, the North Vancouver MLA who is the the first B.C. cabinet minister of

Japanese heritage. Her father was also interned in the Second World War. He also asked his MLA, Guy Gentner of the NDP, to get involved, and legislators of all political stripes co-operated to bring forth the apology on Monday. As Suzuki said, “Most of these causes take time. It happened so quickly that I was overwhelmed.” It is curious that B.C. never is-

sued a formal apology back in the late 1980s, when the federal government did so, and also offered compensation to all those who were interned. As Yamamoto noted in the House Monday, the provincial government was complicit in the removal of the Japanese-Canadians. The forced relocation was driven by anti-Oriental politicians at all levels of government, in particular

the B.C. legislature and Vancouver city council. While an apology 70 years later cannot make up for the hardships that the internees endured, it is a welcome and overdue step. The Suzukis deserve thanks for their willingness to take on this cause, and obtain formal recognition of the wrong done so long ago. —Black Press

Forest jobs won’t wait for 2013

B.C. Views Tom Fletcher

S

awmill tragedies in Prince George and Burns Lake have brought overdue attention to the larger crisis, as the end of B.C.’s latest pine beetle infestation continues to transform the Interior forest industry.

The urgency of the timber supply situation was set out in a couple of high-level documents that were leaked from the forests ministry in recent weeks. These leaks show several things, one of which is that this is a government in trouble. Someone on the inside forced the unpopular options into the public arena. Cabinet ministers have tried to dismiss the documents as early drafts, but no one has disputed their numbers. A report on mid-term timber supply looks at the four most beetle-affected areas: Prince George, Lakes (west of Prince George around Burns Lake), Quesnel and Williams Lake. In recent years B.C.’s chief forester has increased the annual allowable cut of all these timber supply areas substantially to

harvest dead trees. In Lakes, the pre-beetle annual allowable cut was 1.5 million cubic metres. Currently it is up to two million, but once the beetle wood is unusable, it drops to 500,000. Even if visual quality rules are relaxed to release more timber, forest employment in the area would go from 1,572 jobs before the beetle epidemic to 521. Prince George’s much larger harvest total is expected to drop by almost half. And around Quesnel, producers say an economic supply of dead pine will be there for only another year and a half.This document and a subsequent proposal to cabinet set out the options. They include relaxing visual quality areas, old-growth management

zones and wildlife connectivity corridors. This is not as drastic as it sounds, given that the first areas to be opened up would be those where many of the trees are already dead. Most beetle-affected areas have a substantial proportion of live trees. If decade-old dead trees were subsidized for biofuel use, this would support harvest and hauling of healthy sawlogs along with them. Speaking to forest scientists who work in B.C., a couple of things become clear. This pine beetle epidemic may be the largest on record, but it is far from the first. And despite many assertions by former premier Gordon Campbell, it is not certain if this one is the result of a broader climate trend or just a string of warmer winters

after decades of fire suppression kept older stands around. Lodgepole pine forests are fire-propagated. The term “old growth” has little meaning in a cycle of natural fires that doesn’t occur in wetter zones. But none of this will matter much in the urban political debate that is about to ensue. “Old growth” is now a quasi-religious notion. International environmental groups have convinced most people that logging is the primary cause of forest loss. The B.C. Liberal government needs to make some tough decisions quickly, before next year’s election. The premier’s vow to “create and defend” jobs is about to be tested like never before. •Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press.

The Perennial Experts

*^¥^††z> ^>¾^†

Not all males of our species are keen on lawns Editor: I was having a nice cup of joe and reading with interest Arzeena Hamir’s “The insanity of lawn maintenance,” May 4. I nodded enthusiastically. I reached paragraph three (“the male of our species”) and threw up said joe all over my lawn which needs cutting (according to my wife). Unlike Arzeena, I can only speak for this man. I don’t want to cut the grass. (Once a month would work.) I don’t want to pick up any grass I do cut. (I don’t mind if the cuttings get tracked into the house by the kids.) I don’t want to dig up dandelions. (If they were harder to grow everyone would want them.)

What I do want, (as do some men) is to lounge back in front of the big screen TV, unshaven, wearing a dirty T-shirt and shorts, watching the ball game. Apart from that I thought it was a well written article with a great message. David Price Richmond

worthwhile pursuits, is good ingredient for discussion. One thing to note in the article though, it is not only the “male of our species” that has that need for “short, manicured lawns.” Female members of the family are also reminding the males to do it. And reminding them often. Also, “manicured” is certainly not a “testosterone” induced word. It still remains to be said however, that males and females do make a good balanced team. And what a valuable resource a front lawn is. What potential. It grows so much material in a year, using sun, air and water that is so abundant in this blessed land, and then gives back to its sur-

roundings, in air quality, beauty, sound, life, water absorbing qualities and food. (Dandelions for one, are edible after all.) Males and females working together for a better world, now to figure out how to work with those deep-rooted dandelions. Johann Tan Richmond

Being a resident of East Richmond it is most frustrating to observe the deplorable condition of the entrance to East Richmond.

of visiting. Although the dedicated staff offer their best welcome, the RV trailer accommodations are very crude. It can certainly be improved with a permanent building and possibly a food and relaxation facility. The transit stops are frightening to access and use, especially at night time. Maintenance of the Steveston Highway overpass and ramps are deplorable because of overgrowth of weeds and grass. Traffic congestion is confusing and infuriating for visitors. Contact with my one trusted council member and once-ina-while MLA result in no reply or interest. It is anticipated that this is another situation where there is too many government agencies responsible, that a co-operative effort for welcoming visitors in a sincere manner can never be accomplished. The money and effort to provide a more than mediocre effort for visitors will provide improved revenue to our city. Dale T. Pitts Richmond

th

letters Don’t live in fear of genetically modified food Editor: Arzeena Hamir’s April 27 tirade against genetically modified food caught my attention not because of its wisdom, but because of its unscientific one-sided blather. As she herself states, “Not a single long term test for human safety has been conducted,” yet she makes the bold negative assertion that we, in effect, are being poisoned by such products. She seems to be as much upset by the fact that what she regards as evil corporations are making billions as she is by the unknown effects of genetic modifications. She sheds a tear for our farmers, presumably traditional small time family farmers who are an almost non-existent factor in the totality of today’s agri-business. She represents an element in our society who live in fear of what we are capable of doing in the 21st century. The thing that scares me most is not her views, but the suggestion that our city council is on the verge of being intimidated by that activist group. I am a much more informed judge of what is

good for me than any voter-intimidated member of council. I have been hanging around this world for a long time. I was a sickly child because my early years coincided with the Great Depression in a state of poverty that is now almost unknown in this country. I recall my mother saying every child should eat a ton of dirt while growing up if they are to develop a strong immune system. It worked for me. I am convinced that far too many of today’s children are too inactive and overprotected from all forms of bacteria and a lot else to have a chance of developing a strong immune system. They are going to have to rely on many yet to be developed genetically modified organisms if they are going to live long healthy lives. Millions of people who in my era would have died as children are alive today because genetically modified crops have created immense gains in food production. Genetic modification is not something to be feared, except in horror movies. It is a natural part of life. A brilliant and famous man

called Darwin opened the eyes of the scientific world to that. We aren’t the same human beings we were a couple of hundred years ago. I recall my amazement on visiting plantation slave quarters in Louisiana a few years back. I had to scrunch way down to get through the doors. Today’s basketball and football descendents of those slaves would have a difficult time even getting into those hovels. There are always going to be people who approach life in a negative way. Our world of mass communication has the unfortunate side effect of giving such people an outsized impact. All forms of commercial media have an obligation to present a more balanced view than is currently the case. The noisy and fearful among us get far too much attention. Despite all the problems and inequities our lives today are better than they have ever been. We should celebrate the positives and welcome the changes that modern science can bring to our future.

He then got into perennial gardening at the age of 15, and turned his mother’s front garden into a perennial garden. Unlike annuals, which must be replanted yearly, perennials are a

bit more expensive over the short term, but in the long term they continue to live and grow, offering a better value to the gardener. And unlike annuals, of which there are a relatively limited selection, there are literally thousands upon thousands of varieties of perennials. “They offer great value and diversity,”

Lewis said. Those new to the world of perennials “will realize it is an amazing and diverse world filled with endless possibilities.” Lewis lived in Germany until he was four, and recalls having his own veggie garden while living just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia during his elementary school days.

Thousands of plants From Page 13 Lewis has seen the interest in gardening grow, especially in recent years with more and more people concerned about food security and their ecological footprints. Today, people are increasingly concerned about knowing where and how their food is grown. Hence, the resurgence in farmers markets across North America. And as people are returning to their own gardens—“Everybody will say to you there’s nothing like a tomato grown in your own back yard,” Lewis said—an added benefit is they are once again interacting with their neighbours. What’s helped Phoenix Perennials thrive in a competitive nursery environment in Richmond is its commitment to providing cutting-edge perennials, sourcing out rare or unusual plants, and not forgetting about those gardening stalwarts. Phoenix Perennials offers a searchable database on its website (phoenixperennials. com), which includes 2,000 of its 4,000 varieties. Now known as a destination nursery, Phoenix Perennials also ships across Canada.

Mother’s Day The gift of green for Mother’s Day

M

om may appreciate chocolate or flowers. But for children who want to offer her something a little more special—especially for their eco-conscious moms—there are a number of different gift options to make Mom's big day as eco-friendly as it is enjoyable. An eco-friendly gift for Mom is a gift that keeps on giving. When you jot down your gift idea list, think about adding these "green" gifts. •Make a basket of gardening gear. Garden plants and supplies are perhaps the greenest gifts to give Mom. Plants are so plentiful and varied that there are bound to be ideal flowers or greenery for every mother’s tastes. Compile different gardening essentials, such as seeds or seedlings, organic soil mix, mulch, all-natural compost, and a few different planting containers. You can also include gardening gloves and ergonomic tools made of recycled materials. •Dine at a local restaurant. Many families take Mom out for a meal on her special day. To make the experience eco-friendly, select among restaurants that are close to home in the area. Explore the possibilities of restaurants that may serve foods made with local, organic ingredients. If you cannot find such a restaurant, do not worry, just choose a local establishment to conserve fuel. •Pay for a car tune-up. Improving the gas mile-

age on Mom’s car is one gift that can be environmentally friendly. •Purchase eco-friendly kitchen items. It may be a major faux pas to give Mom an appliance or a new vacuum for Mother's Day. However, if your mother is an avid cook or baker, she may appreciate some new mixing bowls or utensils made from recycled materials. If Mom is the consummate entertainer, get her new glass tumblers and sipping straws made from recycled glass. They are perfect for serving cocktails and outdoor entertaining. •Pamper mom with organic products. What mom doesn’t enjoy a little pampering from time to time? You can treat your mother to a spa experience at home by assembling a basket full of organic shampoo, conditioner, massage oils, bath salts, and any other organic spa items you can find.

richmond sports awards

Here’s to some real good sports: well done by Don Fennell Sports Editor At its simplest, sport is wins and losses. But that’s after the game, when the thrill of victory or agony of defeat is the result of the outcome. It’s the lure of competition and the lessons learned during the heat of the battle that matter most. Whether it’s an individual pursuit or as part of a team, sport challenges us to be

the best we can be—on and off the field of play. Each year, The Richmond Review, in co-operation with Richmond Sports Council and the City of Richmond, proudly recognizes the achievements of local individuals who, during the previous 12 months, have contributed greatly to Richmond’s sporting legacy. Since its inauguration in 1999, the Richmond Sports Awards has

strived to recognize noteable athletic performances as well as pay tribute to but a few of the many volunteers whose contributions are all-encompassing and help ensure community sport continues and grows. Collectively, these individuals inspire us all. This year’s 13th annual Richmond Sports Awards were held May 5 at R.A. McMath Secondary School— a fitting venue given that the first

Congratulations to all winners and nominees.

awards, which were also held there, honoured Bob McMath for whom the school is named. Born in Ireland in 1915, Robert Alexander McMath moved to Richmond after serving in the Second World War. Immediately becoming active in the community, he was a school trustee from 1951 to 1957 where upon he was elected to city council . He remained a councillor for all but two years through to 1993.

B O B B Y

During his 40-plus years in public service, McMath also proved a visionary and demonstrated a particular passion and fondness for sport. In addition to contributing to such projects as the Richmond Trail System and a sports facility in Minoru Park, it was his wish that a park be attached to each school giving students easy access to recreation opportunities in their neighbourhoods.

> Richmond Sunrise Rotary’s 24th annual charity auction

Around Town Amanda Oye

Auction ahoy

P

irates and philanthropists alike came out to play at Richmond Sunrise Rotary’s 24th annual charity auction at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel last Saturday.

“The awareness of what Rotary does in the community is really the message that we wanted to get out … it’s quite a vibrant club,” said Sandra Hass, the auction chair. Over 250 guests were treated to a sword fight by The Jade Dragon Pirates, entertainment by Hot Wax Mobile Music, dinner and dancing at the pirate-themed fundraiser. “It really is a great way to give back to the community,” Hass said. Turning Point will receive 20 per cent of the money raised at the event and the rest will go towards the various other projects that the club supports. Fundraising was done throughout the evening through silent and live auctions, a 50/50 draw and a game of Heads and Tails, the winner of which won an iPad. “We’re a small community fundraising [club], and I think we do very well,” Hass said. Guests also had a chance to win a flight for two from WestJet anywhere it flies. Amanda Oye covers the social scene. amanda.oye@telus.net.
