70 year old charged following altercation on flight

Mother’s Day always special for family of 10 Secret to raising large family is providing structure and plenty of love

Staff Reporter A 70-year-old North Vancouver woman has been charged after she allegedly grabbed a flight attendant around the neck during an Air Canada flight from London, England to Vancouver International Airport earlier this year. Moira Evelyn Gentry made her first appearance in Richmond provincial court this week in connection with the Jan. 4 incident. Richmond RCMP Staff Sgt. Dave Conrod told The Richmond Review Thursday that Gentry was displaying occasional erratic behaviour during the inbound flight to Vancouver. When a flight attendant approached her, Gentry allegedly grabbed her around the neck, Conrod said. Gentry was later restrained and kept in her seat, and was arrested after the plane landed at Vancouver International Airport. She volunteered to go to Richmond Hospital, and was held for further examination. Gentry, who has been released, is scheduled to make her next Richmond provincial court appearance on June 5 at 10:30 a.m.
very morning at 6 o’clock sharp, Julia Dee rolls out of bed, gathers her nine-monthold daughter Lucy for her feeding, and takes a half an hour to gather herself in prayer for the wonders of the day to come.

“Otherwise, I can be a little grouchy,” she said with a smile as she sat at a large rectangular dining table Tuesday morning, beside her husband Stephen, their eight children and a steaming cup of coffee. It’s breakfast time, and the kids—some dressed in school uniforms, others still in pajamas or diapers—are scooping rice, asking for more bacon, pouring milk from a jug, or chomping on a piece of chicken. It’s a distinctly rich Filipino breakfast. Large families were once much more commonplace, but the economic realities of the 21st century mean these days, a family with eight kids is relatively rare, and will often turn heads. But all Julia and Stephen see are blessings and the familiar. Julia is from a family of 11 children, and Stephen has eight siblings, so both are accustomed to being around plenty of kids, whether sisters and brothers, or children of siblings and cousins. Ranging in age from nine months to 13 years, the Richmond chapter of the Dee clan is continuing a sizable family tradition. The gathering of 10 at breakfast is anything but chaotic on this particular morning, as some children chatted as they ate, others played quietly by themselves, and still others were distracted by the presence of a photographer on this crisp overcast spring morning at their East Richmond home. In Julia’s and Stephen’s families, mothers have always been strong ﬁgures, and that’s something that’s been carried over in Julia. “I’ve always been a sports girl, and with that you’re always disciplined,” said Julia, who recalls playing tennis with her dad each day before school. “But you can’t just expect them (children) to be disciplined. You have to be disciplined too.” Even as she’s pulling one young child down from the top of a bench next to a window—“she’s the dramatic one”—another is all smiles, ﬁddling with food as she’s perched in a high chair.

Steveston jetty home to sea lions For the next few weeks, they’ll be sunning themselves off Garry Point
by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter For the next few weeks, a migrating colony of sea lions will be basking in the sun off Garry Point Park. Steveston EcoTours’ Bruce Livingston took The Richmond Review for a boat trip to see the large animals barking as waves crashed into the rocky ﬁve-mile-long jetty that extends
west of Lulu Island. The sea lions will head out for mating grounds on the coast of Washington State in early June, Livingston said. Since mid-March, interest in coastal tours has picked up for locals entertaining out-of-town visitors. A one-hour round trip to visit the jetty— plenty of time for amateur photographers to snap shots of the animals, who were joined by more than a dozen bald eagles on this particular
Car dealership in full bloom for Richmond Food Bank Eco-friendly BMW dealership gets a little greener with rooftop vegetable garden by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Auto West BMW technicians got their hands dirty yesterday morning—but not with grease. Staff helped plant a 680-square-foot vegetable garden on the roof of the Cambie Road auto dealership, pushing tomato, pepper, bean, onion and squash seedlings into a soil box the size of a bowling lane. Once ready, the vegetables will be donated to the Richmond Food Bank—along with fruit from existing rooftop berry bushes and multi-variety apple trees. The garden bed was previously ﬁlled with ornamental plants. But the dealership believed it could do more to help local families in need. “We just looked at it and thought this would be a better use of our upper garden,” said Pete Sargent, project development manager, surveying the food bank garden. The garden will be tended by a staff committee. Another smaller garden bed is reserved for staff to grow their own food. Growing vegetables is just the latest green project for Auto West. The dealership also maintains ﬁve bee hives on the roof, along with other ornamental beds. Solar and wind power are harvested, water is recycled and geothermal heating and cooling is utilized.
Thursday morning—costs $25 per person, for a minimum of four people. A two-hour trip is $40 per person, for a minimum of four people. The range of the California sea lion extends from as far north as Alaska, and south, as far as Mexico. For more about Steveston EcoTours, visit www. stevestonecotours.com or call 604-277-6205. •See richmondreview.com for more photos of sea lions and eagles.

First-quarter â€˜favourableâ€™ for city Housing starts expected to climb by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter B.C.â€™s housing market is expected to move upwards this year and next, and the same should hold true for Richmond, according to a new report. Housing starts are expected to climb slightly from 2011 levels in B.C. despite a slow-moving economy, according to a report from the
Nonetheless, ďŹ rst-quarter ďŹ nancial results for Richmond show the city is off to a â€œfavourable start,â€? noted Sanghera. The city issued 294 building permits in the ďŹ rst quarter, down from the 335 issued in the same time last year. The value of permits also decreased, but city ofďŹ cials are expecting this trend to reverse once development applications received last year are processed. The city received 50 development applicationsâ€”required for all new constructionâ€”in the ďŹ rst quarter of 2012, a 42.9 per cent increase over the ďŹ rst three months of 2011.
cityâ€™s ďŹ nance department. â€œThis forecast is also expected to hold true for Richmond as evident by the number of demolitions, which has increased for the quarter by 8.1 per cent from the same quarter last year,â€? said accounting manager Nashater Sanghera, in her report. The housing market is considered key in determining the cityâ€™s economic outlook. Median selling prices fell slightly in the first three months of 2012â€”dropping 1.8 per cent for detached homes, 0.9 per cent for townhouses and 2.8 per cent for apartments.

EDITORIAL: A day of honour for lifelong sacriﬁces
others will have their special day this Sunday, but if there’s anybody who deserves so much more, it’s moms. For those fortunate enough to have loving mothers in their lives, imagine what life would be like without them.
Moms are the ﬁrst to respond when there’s a cry, suddenly consumed by worry for their little ones. In the middle of the night, bedroom screams rouse her, and she’s the one whose soothing voice and warm embrace make everything better. School fundraisers wouldn’t be the same without mothers, who
aside from dedicating countless hours to cooking and cleaning, volunteer for whatever sports organization their children are involved with, from soccer and hockey to baseball and basketball. Would there even be bake sales without them? Mothers seem to undergo a metamorphosis upon giving birth.
Suddenly, all focus turns to their little ones. Somehow, they manage to survive sleepless nights and worryﬁlled days. And the love that they give spawns even more love, something that’s passed on from generation to generation. Here’s a toast to moms and all they do.
Equal opportunity in doling out criticism

seem to have touched a nerve with my gender reference concerning lawn maintenance. I assumed that many would agree that women are much more in tune with the earth and wouldn’t allow
something so superﬁcial to put the health of their families or the planet in jeopardy. And then I was going to explain how there is an issue that makes women lose all sense of sanity. Women, who would normally purchase organic foods for their children, would never think of spraying a single pesticide around their gardens, will often throw caution to the wind when it comes to one issue: colour. More speciﬁcally, the colour of their hair and the lack of colour in their laundry white loads. Let me explain. More than 45% of women in Canada dye their hair. Many younger women do so with semi-permanent colour that washes out after
a few weeks. There is, however, a large percentage of women that use permanent dye, on a regular basis, to prevent grey hair from showing. It’s these permanent dyes, usually in the darker shades, that have been linked to higher rates of bladder cancer, leukemia, and NonHodgkins lymphoma. And yet, when I mention this to friends and family who do colour their hair on a regular basis (every 5 weeks!), they would rather take that risk than be seen in public with grey hari. And don’t even try to talk about what all those dyes are doing to the environment as they wash down the drain. I call it the Achilles heel of the fairer sex.
On the ﬂip side, it’s the lack of colour in laundry whites where you also see women throwing caution to the wind. When I see anyone reaching for jugs of chlorine bleach in the grocery store, I cringe. How is it, in an age when we know how toxic chlorine is to both humans and the environment, that we still use it? My own mother-in-law (and I can talk about her in the paper because she no longer lives in Richmond) chlorine bleaches all the white t-shirts, towels, and socks on a regular basis. When I mention that hydrogen peroxide (now in most cleaning products with the word “Oxy”) is a much safer option, her eyes usually glaze over. It’s as if the whiteness of the laundry reﬂects the
moral integrity of the person doing the laundry. I realize that some men do laundry but I think society is more forgiving if there’s a man behind the less-than-pearly whites. Only bad mothers allow their kids to walk around in grungy t-shirts. As you can guess, my own hair is greying and my kids have stains in their shirts. If I can’t get the stain out with peroxide, I’m sure as hell not throwing the shirt away. But I have a pretty thick skin when it comes to going against “social norms.” So, as an olive branch to all of those men who feel slighted by my comments about their lawn maintenance, take heart. Women can be just as insane.

Richmond Review Âˇ Page 7
letters Highway 91 median needs a cleanup Editor: I would like to express concern over the condition of Highway 91 between No. 6 Road and the Westminster Highway exit. I have driven this road practically every day since 1992 when I moved into Hamilton. I have witnessed the creation of the Westminister Highway overpass. I remember then the government of the day would clean the highway and it was kept for the most part safe. Since the road cleaning job was contracted out to private business the road has become neglected, and I say this largely due to the fact that the centre median has been collecting debris. This debris has damaged both my vehicles at the cost of $600 in the past year. Three comprehensive claims for damage due to projectiles. I am very concerned as the arrival of
summer approaches. I am preparing my motorcycle for use during the summer months and the amount of debris in the centre median concerns me. I would not want to be struck by any of the debris that lies windswept against the concrete barrier. As the weather changes and dries it out it will become loose and thus when large trucks drive in the fast lane they blow this debris into the air landing on anything caught in it path. In a vehicle you are protected by the body of the car, not so much on a motorbike. My question is, does it take someone getting seriously if not fatally injured to have this road properly cleared of debris as periodically as they clean the grassy boulevard to the right of the roadway?

letters Moms need a break from sports on Motherâ€™s Day Editor: This letter is directed to all of the wonderful Richmond Youth Sports Associations that this city is fortunate enough to have: Please leave my Motherâ€™s Day alone. Just once make it a sports-free day, please! I, like hundreds of mothers in Richmond, spend the better part of the year making sure that uniforms are clean, equipment is ready, water bottles are ďŹ lled, snacks prepared, nutritious meals are made (often at ridiculous times and served on the run) and that my kids arrive at their practices and games on time, while I stay to encourage and support themâ€”many moth-
Ä´ Ä´ Ä´Äź
ers also have full-time jobs and some even coach or manage the teams. Despite two scheduled games on May 13, I thought I had it made this year with plans for a leisurely brunch made and served by my boys, only to ďŹ nd my plans squashed by the discovery that team photos will be held on Motherâ€™s Day (followed by a skills competition) requiring us to be on site at 9:45am. Not my ideal Motherâ€™s Day. Once a year I deserve (as do all mothers) to be treated like a queen for an entire day, enjoying my children, my husband and my own mother fully, not just for 45 minutes at 8 a.m. on the Sunday morning.
I implore you, please let the sports playing children of Richmond say their thanks to their mothers in a more ďŹ tting manner. So, Richmond youth sports associations, I challenge you to do better next year. Letâ€™s celebrate our mothers. Mark your calendars! Sunday May 12, 2013â€”Motherâ€™s Day. And while youâ€™re at it, please block out Sunday, June 16, 2013 as well so we may fully celebrate the amazing fathers in our lives â€”who are often rushing home from a hard days work to coach our budding athletes.

Give a Loving Animal a New Lease on Life
Where money is to be made, short-cuts are the rule Editor: Re: “Don’t live in fear of genetically modiﬁed food,” Letters, Wednesday. When a respected columnist of The Richmond Review and a former Richmond alderman write divergent opinions on a current serious topic, that gets my attention. Arzeena Hamir’s April 27 column on genetically modiﬁed food made me pause. Bob Simpson’s letter of May 9 made me put “genetically modiﬁed food” on my watch list. This is what journalism should be about —raising our awareness enough to make us think and do more research. I have some comments to make on both writings. The general population would be extremely foolish to depend on vested interests to look after our general health. Where money is to be made, sadly short-cuts appear to be the rule. Recent history is replete with industrial risk-taking and deceptions resulting in wide-spread death and damage to our environment. Examples are: UFFI, asbestos insulation, statin drugs, additives to formula milk, deep-sea drilling, cigarette smoking—to name a few. Further, the public has to understand that today industry has added 80,000 chemicals to its products and only 200 are on the regulators’ watch lists. Is it small wonder that the gains in hygiene, medicine, and
better food are now more than offset by environmental hazards resulting in shorter life-spans? Mr. Simpson is being very ingenuous to introduce Darwin into the debate. Darwin’s treatise is based on natural selection which occurs over the millennium. This can not be compared in any way to lab-controlled DNA modiﬁcations which result in hardened genetic modiﬁcations already tuned to gain an instant niche. Unless rigorously regulated and tested, dangerous DNA modiﬁcations will be upon us immediately without our species having the opportunity to adapt as our niche in nature is abruptly changed. I get what Mr. Simpson is saying about not being fearful; however, that does not equate to meek acquiescence of every change that is being thrust upon us with questionable motives and questionable outcomes. Like Mr. Simpson, I trust in science but to misquote King Edward Longshanks “the problem with science is that it is full of politicians and industrialists.” John McCrossan Richmond

news LRB asked to declare teacher action an illegal strike by Jeff Nagel Black Press The province-wide edict of the B.C. Teachers Federation barring teachers from participating in extracurricular school activities should be declared an illegal strike, according to application to the Labour Relations Board. The B.C. Public School Employersâ€™ Association aims to strike down the job action on the grounds it violates provincial law. Education Minister George Abbott said the move reflects concern about the impacts on students and parents of the activities ban, which is forcing the cancellation of some sports events, club activities and class trips. The BCTF voted to impose the ban on activities April 20, in the wake of a three-day strike in March that ended with the government legislating a six-month cooling off period, under which mediated talks are supposed to continue. The BCPSEA application argues the BCTF has banned an overly broad range of duties that happen outside instructional hours â€“ including ones that are required and not just voluntary â€“ effectively taking away the individual choice of teachers. Meanwhile, the teachers federation is also before the LRB asking that it remove the governmentappointed mediator Dr. Charles Jago from the dispute, on grounds he is biased.

my life! After a lot of, “No, seriously mom…happy Hother’s Day, I wrote this for you,” Mama Pereira finally got the point. My mom is one of the most important people in my life; she has influenced and instilled such great qualities over the years to my brother, sister and myself. This year, although I would love to surprise my mom again and write something about her, my life has changed a bit. I am getting married! Now, I am trying to make sure this letter does not come off in a “Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City” think-out loud-as-Itype-kind of tone. Plan and simple, my life is about to take a new and exciting turn, and now I will have two moms to celebrate this Mother’s Day.

The more moms’ the better, double the guidance, double the food take-home packages, double the fun … that sounds like a Spearmint Gum commercial. I still work at World Vision and love it, so this year in addition to writing another letter to the editor I decided that a great way to support Mayann Pereira and my “new mom, Vijay Patel” is to support an expectant mom living in poverty through the World Vision Gift Catalogue. Or even sponsor a child in their name. The way I see it, without my mom and my dreamy fiancée’s mom we would not being saying our “I Dos” later this summer. So the least we can do is give the gift in our moms’ names to help two expecting mom’s have the same opportunity to be great mothers to their kid(s). Maybe one day the two kids will meet and get married…okay, maybe that’s a “Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City” thought. Happy Mother’s Day’s to all the Maryann Pereiras and Vijay Patels in the world. It does not matter how old we are, married or single, you’re not just our mom’s…you’re our whole world.

It’s 7:30 a.m. now, and what should be a raucous room—there are eight children in one modest room, after all—is surprisingly tranquil. So what’s her secret? She and Stephen have the same game plan. “I think, the more kids you have, the bigger capacity that’s given to love. You just get more crazy about each one.” And with each new addition to the family, she sees the unique traits start to stand out. When she ﬁrst started having kids, Julia said she read parenting books—“a few of them have really helped me to zone in on each individual kid and recognize what they need”—and took part in parenting groups, where mothers shared notes on what worked, and what didn’t. “Now I organize a couple of mom’s groups.” This will be another special Mother’s Day weekend for Julia and Stephen. She’ll be having brunch with her parents, seven sisters, three brothers and their children. And then Stephen’s organizing a barbecue at their Richmond home for his parents and eight siblings. “I’ve always been surrounded by big families.” And they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Best in bluegrass comes to Steveston by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter
heyâ€™re city dwellers steeped in the classic sounds of bluegrass. Highrise Lonesomeâ€™s ďŹ ve-member crew will bring their sparkling vocals and harmonies to Steveston next week for the Steveston Folk Guildâ€™s next concert. Expect to hear classicsounding originals and innovative covers that showcase the musiciansâ€™ three decades of bluegrass experience. Leading the band is Sue Malcolm, a mainstay of the Vancouver folk and bluegrass scene since 1980. Sheâ€™s a performer, instructor and organizer, as well as a founding member of the PaciďŹ c Bluegrass and Heritage Society. Sheâ€™s also dedicated to spreading the good bluegrass gospel, having developed the popular Slow Pitch Jam method of teaching bluegrass jamming. In recent years, Malcolm has presented this workshop at festivals in B.C., Alberta and Washington. For Highrise Lonesome, she sings and plays guitar. The band formed three years ago from the now defunct Rhythm Roundup. Richmondâ€™s Vic Smyth (vocals, mandolin, rhythm guitar), Don Fraser (vocals, mandolin, rhythm guitar), Stu MacDonald (vocals, upright bass) and Jay Buckwold (ďŹ ve-string banjo) join Malcolm in the High-

rise Lonesome lineup. The Richmond Review reached Malcolm by phone Thursday. How did the name Highrise Lonesome come about? â€œThe sound of bluegrass is usually described as a high, lonesome sound, which describes the high harmony singing and the Appellation mountain music that it came from. A few years ago I wrote a song called â€˜Highrise Lonesome,â€™ capitalizing on the spinoff of that phrase. The song was about alienation in the city, and because we live in the city and we play what is mostly viewed as rural-type music, we decided to adopt that as our band name.â€? Describe the bandâ€™s music. â€œItâ€™s very similar to
early bluegrass roots music, but itâ€™s mostly original. We write a lot of originals, but try to maintain that old-time bluegrass sound. So itâ€™s very acoustic, itâ€™s very heavy on the vocal harmonies.â€? Whatâ€™s the appetite for folk music today, and has that changed since you entered the scene? â€œI think the attraction to me and to most of the people that I play with is the fact that itâ€™s very real. Itâ€™s very pres-

ent, in the moment. In bluegrass, itâ€™s really a lot about participation. Jamming is a huge part of the bluegrass world. Iâ€™ve made a lot of my living teaching people how to jam. â€œI think that thereâ€™s a certain element of people who are kind of disillusioned with commercial music and they want something more real. Even in rural country music the themes are all universalâ€”they speak to everybody. Themes of home and love and striving for peace, family.â€? You seem driven to spread the bluegrass gospel. â€œIâ€™m not a religious person at all, but if thereâ€™s something in my life that takes the place of that, itâ€™s bluegrass music. â€œIâ€™m very passionate about.â€?

In throwing a perfect game against the South Okanagan Tigers recently, Nawid Niyaz achieved what has only been done 21 times in the 132-year history of Major League Baseball. But while the Richmond Chuckers’ pitcher is proud of the feat, he’s downplaying it. "Without the team it’s not a perfect game,” he said. “The team really has to make some nice (defensive) plays out there.” Niyaz’s perfect game in Penticton April 29 was called after five innings when the mercy rule was invoked with the Chuckers up 10-0. “I would have liked it to be (a complete game) seven innings, but it still feels pretty good,” he said. —by Don Fennell

The Richmond Red Hot Selects have been one of the most dominant teams in girls’ soccer over the last several seasons. On Saturday, in front of friends and family, they added to their lengthy list of accomplishments by winning their second straight Coastal Cup title with a 3-0 victory over Central City Pegasus in the under-18 A Cup ﬁnal. They won the under-16 title, also at home, last season. “It means a lot,” said coach Clive Clarke. “They wanted to start the year well and win the league, Coastal Cup and provincials. And I believe they can achieve all three goals.” Clarke has demanded a lot from his players, but believes they are now better prepared for the next phase of their soccer careers—for some playing in the highperformance league and for others perhaps the college level. The players have developed their individual skills while the focus has been on team play. “I’ve always said the team

Community feel important when choosing a home
Feeling at home in a low-rise building When you’re looking for a home, feeling welcome in the community is often a big part of the puzzle. While high-rise architecture is popular, perhaps a low-rise development might be just what you’re looking for. “People find comfort in the smaller scale,” says Andrew Emmerson of GBL Architects. “That’s not to say there won’t still be high-rises ... but (low-rises) feel more homey to some.” One of the positive things about living in a smaller development is that you can more easily get to know your neighbours. “You’re sharing amenities with 50 instead of 500,” Emmerson says. “Low-
rise buildings are more personable in that regard.” That idea is being tested with Collection 45, an exclusive development that features 45 studio, one- and twobedroom suites on six floors in the Mount Pleasant area of Vancouver, with the bottom floor holding commercial space. “It’s not your typical cookie-cutter development,” says Emmerson. The neighbourhood is a blend of historic and modern, with restaurants, shopping and recreation all within walking distance. For more information, visit collection45.com or call 604-569-1555.
lend an incredible sense of space and elegance to every home, while the bathrooms are made for relaxation. His-and-hers sinks, glass shower stalls and hand-set tile flooring all combine to make for what really is the perfect bathroom. They also include some special features that are sure to impress, such as a powder room on the main floor and two parking spaces with every home. “Many of our buyers have been asking for a bathroom on the main level,” says Kasahara. “We were able to achieve that in all of these floorplans,
and expect it to be a huge selling feature here at Bishop Creek.” The private garages on every home feature a bonus room off of them, which Kasahara says can be used as extra storage space or a media room. “We call it the ‘Man Cave’,” he says, adding that it’s “the perfect space for a big-screen TV, couch and bar fridge.” The townhomes are built in a Craftsman style, with wood and brick accents and plenty of outdoor space, including private decks and patios. The development itself includes a landscaped park with a playground, and is bordered by the Bishop Creek itself and Harold Bishop Elementary School. The location also offers easy access to Highway 1. The sales centre will open this summer, and buyers will be able to take possession before the next school year starts. Homes at Bishop Creek start in the mid $300,000s. For more information, visit www.bluetreehomes.ca or call 604588-0005.

The BMO Vancouver Marathon is Canada’s largest destination marathon at the 41st BMO Vancouver Marathon. After several years of declining enrollment, the organizers decided it was time to capitalize on the city’s natural beauty, creating a point to point course that showcased the very best of Vancouver, including Queen Elizabeth Park, Spanish Banks, Kitsilano and Stanley Park. According to Forbes Magazine (Jan. 2012 issue), the BMO Vancouver Marathon is now ranked in the top 10 destination marathons in the world. It’s also ofﬁcially Canada’s largest marathon. The marathon in its 41st year has come a long way since

No sweat, no sore legs, no looking for a quiet place to die, just “Thanks for the experience.” Nice as it was to ride in comfort, I do look forward to my next marathon on my own power.

The 60-year-old Mahoney has run Vancouver 17 times and loves the new course. “New York City is still my favorite big city marathon because they have two million spectators.
