Local government takes stand, despite not having enforcement powers

Richmond puts GM crops to pasture Genetically engineered plants

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Genetically modified crops are now unwelcome in Richmond. City council endorsed a resolution Tuesday opposing the cultivation of genetically engineered plants and trees in Richmond. The resolution states that apart from three existing dairy farms growing genetically modified corn, no further such crops are welcome. “The city does not have the enforcement powers here. So it is a statement of our intention of our consideration of the matter,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. Regulation of genetically modified crops and food products is a federal responsibility. “In the most positive sense we would want to work with the agriculture community in general and to make sure that people are educated as to the possible risks and also to work towards getting better information out to consumers,” said Brodie. There’s little consensus on risks and benefits of genetically engineered plants. According to city staff, a 2008 global review of the available science found a limited number of properly designed studies on the impacts to human health. City council is nonetheless making a statement. “We don’t know exactly what the ramifications could be so why take the chance if through a little more thought and searching out alternatives that farmers can grow crops without using genetically modified seeds,” said Brodie. City council’s resolution, which requires a ratification vote next Monday, also urges senior governments to better manage genetically modified plants through mandatory labelling and greater communication with the public. Local agrologist Arzeena Hamir advocated for the resolution and called Tuesday’s decision “history in the making.”

In the ideal world in Canada products that contain genetically modified ingredients would be labelled and the general public would know what they’re eating.” Hamir said through choice it would become clear people don’t want these products in their food. But because “we’re all being experimented on” and the federal government hasn’t responded to calls for labelling, it’s up to local governments to respond. Richmond will be the eighth community in B.C. to adopt such a resolution—and one with the largest agricultural industry—and could lead to more municipal governments to follow. “When you get a critical mass of communities that have enacted this type of resolution, then you can take it to the provincial level, and then from the province we can then start advocating for a national moratorium, at least,” said Hamir. Nevertheless, Vancouver Coastal Health officials don’t believe genetically modified food presents a risk to the public. “There is no public health reason for a ban of genetically engineered trees, plants and crops as proposed in the resolution presented to council,” said the letter, signed by health officers Dalton Cross and Dr. James Lu. Genetically engineered food products were first approved by Health Canada in 1994. According to health officials, up to 70 per cent of grocery store food has some ingredients derived from genetically engineered organisms.

Nicholas Allum/ AllumSki.com photo Sahar Biniaz, 26, will now represent Canada in the 2012 Miss Universe contest.

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Richmond’s Sahar Biniaz is now Canadian pageant royalty. The 26-year-old won the crown at the Miss Universe Canada 2012 contest last Saturday in Toronto. “It was absolutely amazing. The feeling of it is like winning a lottery: you buy a ticket hoping to win, but you’re never ever prepared enough

mentally, emotionally and physically for all these things that will go with it.” Biniaz is now planning a tour of South America to work with the charity SOS Children’s Villages. In B.C. she’ll be helping raise awareness for B.C. Transplant, an organization close to her heart ever since a 25-year-old cousin died in a car accident—but not before he saved someone’s life with a heart donation. See Page 7

Andrew Allen has advice for young voices Singer-songwriter, performing Tuesday at RichCity Idol by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter With spiked hair, cool clothes and a badass rock band, Andrew Allen remembers one of the first times he performed in front of a crowd. It happened to be his high school. A teacher had invited him to put on a show between school band sets. Crazy, Allen thought, but he jumped anyway and gave himself an experience that left him shaking. He was hooked. Today, Allen is a singer-songwriter whose career in pop music is taking off thanks to his hit “Loving You Tonight,” which landed him a record deal and a video with 3.6 million online views. On Tuesday, Allen will give back to young artists as a guest performer and judge at the ninth annual RichCity Idol show at Gateway Theatre. The showcase of local musical talent—featuring one top singer from each public high school in the district—offers young singers a shot on the big stage. Allen’s advice? Breathe it in. “If there’s any way to get up on stage and take a big deep breath first—and be able to experience all the people who are there watching you and supporting you—then as

Children’s Hospital. soon as that song’s done, that’ll always be a part of your memory,” he said in a phone interview. Since jumping head first into a music career four years ago, Allen has been busy making a name for himself through several tours in Canada and the United Kingdom while collecting awards, chart spots and fans. With similarities to Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson and John Mayer, Allen has opened for big acts like Bruno Mars, OneRepublic and Train. Based in his hometown of Vernon, Allen is still performing but has taken a break from touring to hone his songwriting while awaiting the imminent release of his next single. It was 2008 when Allen and wife Julia quit their jobs and sold their house and belongings. They bought a minivan and Allen took his music on the road, performing 210 shows a year. That hard work paid off with “Loving You Tonight,” a song he wrote in Nashville and played for his wife via Skype. “I could tell right away it definitely had those special components

to it. Every now and again you write a song (that) has something different. That was definitely one of those songs.” He recorded it and independently released it to Canadian radio. The song picked up steam on the charts and the Epic label noticed, signing Allen, releasing the song in the U.S. and bankrolling a video. The song exploded and was featured in the 2011 Taylor Lautner film Abduction. “It ended up being much more than this cute little song I had written for the love of my life, and instead had blown up into this thing that a lot of people could identify with.” His latest song carries a similar buzz—and he’s got a lot more tunes he’s eager to share. “I think that there’s an honesty to my writing, and I think there’s an identifiable character with a lot of them,” he said. “To tell an old school love story in a song is a new concept in this day and age, so I’d love to see myself carry that torch and sing at that top level, but I’d also like to be able to write those songs for other people.” When Allen plays at Gateway Theatre Tuesday, he’ll likely have his go-to guitar with him—a Duncan Africa—built in Uganda to support a village and finely-tuned by Surrey-based guitar master Jay Duncan. Said Allen: “It still smells like wood. It wasn’t made in a factory. There’s extra glue in some parts, extra resin here and there, little cracks. I just think it’s so cool.”

Singer-songwriter Andrew Allen is one of three judges who will evaluate the talents of 10 young singers Tuesday at Gateway Theatre.

Police investigators are hoping the public will be able to help them track down a purple Honda Civic that was travelling east on Highway 91 while in the westbound lanes near Knight Street, and caused two collisions. RCMP Const. T.J.C. Wilton said the incident occurred around 3:20 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, when police received a report about the wrong-

way driver. The purple Civic caused a crash with a Toyota Camry near No. 6 Road, and then continued eastbound and struck a Toyota 4Runner near the Westminster Highway overpass. Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call RCMP Cpl. Dhaliwal or Const. Wilton of the Deas Island trafďŹ c service ofďŹ ce at 604-946-2184.

Tug boat runs aground in Steveston Celebrating 45 years in the Community!

Incident underscores need for dredging of waterways by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

Jim Jones photo The 24-metre tug boat Jose Narvaez ran aground in the waters between Steveston and Shady Island.

“They’re not doing the job anymore,” Baziuk said. Logs and other debris can get under the existing boom, and cause damage to the harbour’s dockside infrastructure as well as the boats moored there. He’s suggesting that sand dredged from the channel be deposited alongside the weir that connects Steveston to the eastern tip of Shady Island, which would trap debris originating upriver. This would create an environmental zone that would serve to shelter the harbour. Asked how much the dredging work might cost, Baziuk said: “If we’re going to do it right, to a standard people can live with, it might reach a million (dollars).” Baziuk said it’s a constant battle to acquire funding for harbour maintenance, and understands why most politicians aren’t eager to divert money toward a project that doesn’t result in a media photo opportunity. “You can’t see it (dredging work). It’s not like a bright new shiny dock.”

The 24-metre tug boat Jose Narvaez ran aground in the waters off Steveston around noon Saturday, an incident that points to the need for regular dredging of the area, according to Steveston Harbour Authority general manager Bob Baziuk. The vessel listed to its port side in the shallow channel that runs between Steveston and Shady Island, after it came to a halt near the narrow island’s western-most edge. There were no injuries and the vessel was undamaged, according to Lafarge Canada, which owns the boat. Baziuk doesn’t know what precisely the tug boat struck, but things figure to only get worse as long as the channel isn’t dredged again. Some larger fishing boats are scheduled to come to the harbour in the next few months, he said, adding: “They’re not going to be able to access the harbour very soon.” The harbour authority has been working with DeltaRichmond East MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay and various levels of government in hopes that funding will be made available for the needed dredging work, Baziuk said. Recently Baziuk came upon another hazard that threatens the harbour, in the form of a tree, branches and all, that had become snagged in the boom at the eastern end of Shady Island. He said debris coming from upriver figures to get only worse as the spring freshet builds, and said the existing protective measures for the harbour aren’t adequate.

I don’t have enough bone for dental implants Bone loss in jaws always occurs when teeth are lost. Up to 50% of the bone ridge volume can disappear in the Àrst year after teeth extractions because there are no longer any roots to stimulate the bone. Extensive periodontal disease and ill Àtting dentures also lead to the thinning and shortening of the jawbone. This leads to complications when attempting to place implants as the dentist requires a suitable amount of bone to support the implant. To solve this problem, the dentist can often do bone graft procedures called Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) or a sinus lift (in the upper jaw). Bone grafts in the mouth are a proven way of building a solid foundation for implants to be placed. If you’ve been putting off going to the dentist for years or have been told that you don’t have enough bone for dental implants, Dr. Nelson may be able to help you. Dr. Greg Nelson offers a FREE initial consultation. During your consultation, you can discuss possible ways to improve your smile and get a better idea of what Dr. Nelson can do for you.

“I lost my two front teeth when I was 7 during a playground accident. It has taken me 28 years to Ànd a dentist that I was comfortable with and I knew had the expertise and patient care to tend to my complicated dental case. Dr. Nelson and his team have been exceptional during the entire bone grafting procedure to correct a bone defect that has come from missing my teeth for so many years. I highly recommend Dr. Nelson when it comes to bone grafting and implants. He goes above and beyond for his patients to ensure they are comfortable and have all the information they need to make informed decisions. I’m loving my new smile!” — E. Scott

Richmond woman rises above a school bullying past to win pageant prize From Page 1 Born in India and raised in Iran, Biniaz came to Richmond at the age of 10. She studied performing arts at Stella Adler Academy in Los Angeles and is working as an actress in film and television. Biniaz graduated from R.C. Palmer, but school in Richmond wasn’t an easy road. In Grade 8 at Richmond High, Biniaz said two girls beat her up in the school bathroom, sending her to hospital. She moved schools, but even in her graduating year, when she started modelling, bullying persisted. “I never got to enjoy the real setting of a school,” she said. In 2005, Biniaz was inspired to compete for the Miss Universe title. At the time she was in Thailand volunteering at an orphanage. She saw an advertisement for Miss Universe and decided to go. Canada won after going decades without a crown. “That really inspired me. That’s why I decided to give it my all, give it my best.” Sahar will now represent Canada at the 2012 Miss Universe competition, scheduled for mid-December. In the meantime she’ll split her time between Vancouver, Toronto and South America. Two other Richmond

residents, Carla Bradstock, 26, and Elana Wu, 22, were also among the 63 women from across Canada who competed for the title. Sahar said she’s promised them she’ll visit all the contestants in their provinces. Sahar also competed in the pageant in 2008, finishing as first runner-up. But with persistence, she found the stage again this year—this time winning the title. She wants to encourage young girls to have the same persistence—and don’t let a second-place finish drag you down. Said Sahar: “I think it’s the background that I come from, the bullying, that helped me to be able to keep going for what I want—not care about what people think or say.”

ichmond council took a progressive leap Tuesday, thumbing its nose at naysayers and even public health officials, by taking a stand on frankenfoods.

This week council voted yes to a resolution opposing the cultivation of genetically engineered plants and trees in Richmond. Yes, senior governments—and ultimately federal authorities—are the regulators, but our local politicians are listening to the people and saying no. Sure there’s no firm evidence suggesting genetically altered food is good or bad for human health. And last time we checked, cities don’t have a science department sandwiched between its bylaws and transportation divisions. But in the absence of such categorical evidence, calling for a ban on such crops was the right move. Right now the Canadian public isn’t being informed of squat when it comes to the genetic engineering behind suppertime. There are no labelling requirements.

Three dairy farms growing sileage corn in Richmond use genetically engineered seeds, according to the city.

Farmers aren’t required to disclose to their organic neighbours if unnatural crops are being grown. As Mayor Malcolm Brodie said, the ramifications of such crops are not exactly known. So why take the chance—

especially when, given this age of information, natural alternatives to what ails a farmer, should exist. Council’s latest move mirrors one it made a few years ago by panning the use of pesticides, banning the city’s and

residents’ use of Roundup and other chemical products designed to kill garden weeds. Similarly, the science is unclear, but there are enough questions surrounding the chemicals and their use that warranted a sudden stop.

With cancer rates seemingly growing and growing, global environmental changes and unexplained economic crises, “science” aimed at bettering our lives needs a careful examination. Let’s start with the dinner table.

Chafer beetle: Fight it or give up on grass

Shades of Green Arzeena Hamir

I

f you’ve ever driven up Cambie Road in Vancouver, or even up Boundary Rd and into Burnaby over the last few years, you may have noticed a peculiar state the grass in the medians and in some of the lawns.

It’s as if every lawn has been rototilled (badly) and tufts of grass are strewn everywhere. No, this is not the work of a poorly trained landscaper. This damage is actually nature’s way of indicating that the Day of Reckoning for lawn owners is near. A small beetle, about the size of a dime is, responsible for all of this damage. The European Chafer’s single purpose in life is to seek out grass in which to mate and lay its eggs. As the eggs hatch into grubs, the grubs feed on the roots of grass and cause dead patches to appear. Now if that weren’t enough to drive lawn aficionados into the underground pesticide trade, Nature then sends in a helping hand. Crows,

skunks, and sometimes raccoons can hear these little grubs munching and they tear out the grass to look for these lovely delectables. Literally overnight, your lawn is undone. And, as long as there is grass to feed on, the beetles will return to lay their eggs. These bugs mean business. This infestation started in New Westminster a decade ago and has been marching westward ever since. Last year, I took a wrong turn down Alderbridge at Garden City and turned into the neighbourhood on the north east corner to turn myself around again. What did I notice? Signs of chafer damage. This year, I’m seeing damage on Garden City Road, right in front of the Bridgeport

Skytrain station. The chafer has come to Richmond. Here’s where it gets interesting. Lawn owners basically have two choices: Commit to fighting this beetle for the rest of the time that you own your lawn, or decide that this is nature’s way of telling you that it’s time to put in a garden (chafer doesn’t eat non-grass species). If you choose the latter, any other type of garden, including a vegetable garden would be ideal. In fact, many homeowners in Vancouver have handed over their non-lawns to young farmers and are now enjoying delicious bounty where a once inedible space stood. For those who decide that the lawn is just too important, the

only organic treatment (remember, we have a pesticide bylaw in Richmond) is to apply predatory nematodes in the third week of July when new eggs are laid. The lawn then has to be kept moist for at least 10 days for the treatment to work. Oh, and did I mention that if your neighbour doesn’t treat their lawn, your treatment is pretty much useless? Yup, you have to speak to your neighbours and everyone has too co-operate and do the treatment together. Can you hear me snickering? Although many would disagree, I think the European Chafer is one of the best things that has ever happened to Richmond. Hats off to Mother Nature!

Reading

Editor: Don’t you think it’s time you cancelled your relationship with Arzeena Hamir? Not only does attack her mother-in-law quite unfairly and unkindly with the ludicrous defence that the poor woman doesn’t read the paper because she has moved, but she also writes inammatory and inaccurate things about hair dye and bleach! There is nothing unhealthful about dyeing one’s hair, and bleach is a product completely safe for use in our environment. Perhaps if Ms. Hamir believed in science and read what our own Health Canada has to say, she might change her mind. But I’m not counting on it. She has a bee in her bonnet about so many modern luxuries. I wish her a relaxing vacation in a country where women are not free to express themselves and where the water from the tap is not safe! Yours in amusement, Catherine Mori Richmond

Pesticide ban would protect children Editor: Re: “We’ll take a less toxic environment, thank you,� Editorial, May 23. Our physicians’ organization much appreciates your thoughtful editorial supporting a ban on lawn and garden pesticides across the province. Such a law—which would protect drinking water, family pets and, most important, British Columbia’s children—should be enacted immediately. Evidence from other parts of Canada shows this type of province-wide legislation really works. In the year following passage of Ontario’s pesticide prohibition, for example, concentrations of these toxic chemicals in urban streams dropped dramatically—in some cases as much as 97 per cent. There’s every reason to believe a B.C. ban would have similar positive effects. Gideon Forman Executive Director Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment

Editor: Re: “Minister delivered on TransLink,â€? May 16. Your guest editorial lauding Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom for quick legislative action on fare evaders seemed to overlook the systemic problem of government oversight of these matters. How could a ministry not know that for 10 years virtually nobody was paying ďŹ nes? Their own Crown corporation, ICBC, had tracked this problem for years. In the last year, transit issued twice as many tickets as the previous year. More rigorous enforcement? How about common knowledge that you never needed to pay the ďŹ nes? Just ask any fare evader, or their friends. This situation deďŹ es belief. We should be talking about ministerial incompetence, not congratulations, unless you are fond of government creating avoidable ďŹ nancial disasters that they can later try to rectify.

community Jumpstart program helps kids play sports Canadian Tire hosts Jumpstart Day Saturday by Don Fennell Sports Editor This Saturday is a big day for amateur sport and recreation in Canada. May 26 is Jumpstart Day, when every Canadian Tire store will feature fun activities and draws to help raise money so that kids from financially disadvantaged families in local communities across the country can get in the game. “It’s extremely beneficial to have programs like this,” says Roger Barnes, past president of Richmond Soccer. “Normally community sport does whatever it can to ensure all children can play regardless of their economic well-being, and this helps make that possible. It’s important that kids have the ability to play with-

out having to be from a high-income family. One of the goals of community sport is to ensure inclusiveness.” Barnes says the fact Canadian Tire would establish a program like Jumpstart speaks “very highly of the corporation and shows they have a good understanding of the importance of sport.” “It’s one thing to support elite athletes and sponsor national teams, and while that’s important, helping kids play sport at the grassroots (is particularly exemplary).” Barnes notes that the cost to play even so-called lower-priced sports is constantly rising, especially when equipment and training fees are added. That, he says, produces two concerns—families who’d like their children to play but simply can’t afford it, and those who don’t encourage their kids to play because they’re concerned about the costs. “If we can create awareness that there’s help available, and cost

doesn’t need to be a barrier, we’ll get more of those families coming out,” he says. Sean Davies, co-ordinator of diversity services at the City of Richmond, says any chance to provide opportunities for kids that are supported by a corporation with the profile of Canadian Tire can only benefit participation in sport. “Getting kids involved in sport and recreation creates opportunities for healthy lifestyles, builds self-esteem, confidence and the ability to learn leadership skills, and develop good social relationships,” he says. “Jumpstart is a fantastic way to allow that entry into sport to begin.” A national charitable program, Jumpstart began in 2005. Its one million red ball campaign is one of the many ways you can donate to Jumpstart. This year there are two new designs, a basketball and a baseball, available for a donation of $2 each.

arts & entertainment Sara Holt returns as Esmeralda Superspy by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Sara Holt is returning to her Richmond roots—as a spy. The Richmond-raised actor is returning to local elementary schools to reprise her role of Esmeralda Superspy Planet Protector in DreamRider Theatre’s new play, H2 Whoa! Six elementary schools will see the show next week, from May 29 to 31. Walter Lee, Manoah Steves, Lord Byng, Henry Anderson and Mitchell elementary schools will host the show. In all, Holt and the DreamRider crew will perform the show at 120 Lower Mainland elementary schools, reaching 30,000 children, until June 8. Created to inspire children and their families to conserve water and make the planet more ecologically friendly, Esmeralda and her sidekick Goober set out to save the world’s water supply, which is in danger thanks to Evil Evaporator. Holt is a Richmond High grad who joined DreamRider in 2001 after studying acting at Langara College’s Studio 58. The show—suitable for students in kindergarten to Grade 7—is provided to schools at no costs thanks to funding from RBC Blue Water Project, Metro Vancouver, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and the Hamber Foundation. The municipalities of Vancouver, West and North Vancouver, Langley, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Burnaby and Abbotsford also sponsor the show.

story, and he looks more like a pony than a dog. In fact, he’s probably larger than some of those miniature ponies you see. Standing 42 inches tall at shoulder height (keep in mind that doesn’t include his long neck and huge head) and seven feet long – yes, you heard right – George, the Great Dane, is in the Guinness Book of World Records for tallest dog EVER. When Dave Nasser and his wife Christie originally got George as a fluffy little puppy weighing 17 pounds, they just saw a sweet natured, happy dog. Little did they know that this runt of the litter would turn out to weigh 245 pounds. But as George grew, so did their love for this gentle giant. And despite his size, he turned out to be the perfect family pet. If you’re thinking this is a Marley & Me knock-off, it’s not. It doesn’t even come close to tugging at the heart strings like Marley did. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a pretty good book; it just lacks that human element that Marley had in spades. Instead, Dave Nasser focuses on George’s size and rise to fame, practically to the exclusion of everything else, including this little family. I mean, when a guy’s wife has just given

birth, do you think he’d be more interested in his dog and his application to Guinness World Records, than his new baby daughter? You tell me. No wonder Christie was a touch miffed. As George and his “parents” make friends with other dog owners at the doggie park, the idea starts to percolate that maybe George really is the biggest Great Dane around. Soon enough they form “Team George,” and the machine that is George takes on a life of its own. Nasser’s friends start a George Facebook page and YouTube account and fan club, and before they know it, they have thousands of “friends” worldwide wanting to know more about Georgie. And in case you’re wondering, George sleeps on his very own queen size bed, eats 110 pounds of dog food each month and has to bend over to drink out of the kitchen sink. And you know what they say: Big dog. Big poop. Don’t even ask. According to Nasser, he had to rig up a special snow shovel-like thing to scoop George’s poop.

‘Pre-planning saves you ... headaches in the end’

Tech tips for new homeowners With the ever-growing amount of available home technology, buyers need to keep an eye on the trends as well as their future plans. “Pre-planning saves you money and headaches in the end,” says Lee Rente of Encore Security and Automation. He suggests that homeowners think about what they will eventually want. Everything from cameras to speakers will need to have a wire somewhere. The first tip Rente gives buyers is to make sure the house is pre-wired for sound, security, television and Internet. “Making sure a wire is where it needs to be will save you a lot of money in the end,” he says, since having to go in and

wire a house once the drywall is up will force the installer to cut holes in walls and ceilings to run the wire through. If you’re planning to mount a television, Rente recommends you look at the construction of your home first. “It is very difficult to hang a TV on steel studding,” he says. “It doesn’t really support weight well.” Instead, he tells homeowners to look for a piece of wood between the studs and behind the drywall. The advice he gives homeowners is to share. “Always tell the tradespeople your ideas,” he says, adding that it will help both parties on their journey to creating the perfect home.

On the bottom floor, all of the units have single-car garages except for B-plan homes, which come with tandem garages. Homes with singlecar garages include finished basement spaces with a bedroom and bathroom. For your guests, pathways crisscrossing the development will link

visitor parking with each building. Brady says these walking spaces add a sense of community to Pier 16. “It feels like you’re walking up to a home, not a number,” she says. Homes at Pier 16 start at $369,900. For more information, visit www. pier16.ca or call 604-542-1616.

Making a satisfying whole

South Surrey gets classy at Woodbridge’s Pier 16 by Colin Oswin

Step up into class at Pier 16. The project, from developer Woodbridge Homes, features 41 threeand four-bedroom townhomes right in the heart of South Surrey. Touring the show home, it becomes clear how many small choices in the finishings add up to a satisfying whole. Where many developments opt for intricate, colourful and showy tile backsplashes in the kitchen, Pier 16 offers a relatively simple pattern with larger, plain tiles that remind the viewer of exposed brick. It provides an air of confidence, like someone who knows they don’t need to show off. Sales manager Trina Brady says this approach has made Pier 16 popular among younger and older buyers alike. “It’s very classy and simple; you can dress it up with add-ons,” she says. “It leaves it as a blank slate for the buyer to fill.” You get this sense from the whole kitchen: the quartz countertops are a little thicker than usual and the undermount sink is a little deeper than usual. It adds up to a satisfying package. The main floor kitchen/dining room/ living room has an open concept layout, and it flows well from one setting to the next. Brady says she encountered a bit of skepticism when describing the L-shaped kitchen, but that quickly dissipated when they saw the room in person. That’s because the kitchen L remains unobtrusive even as it stretches into the middle of the space. “The design here really makes it feel like a large island and not a barrier,” Brady says. Every home includes nine-foot ceilings, and you will get tons of light coming in from the generously sized windows. Heading upstairs, you’ll find the same big, bright windows in all of the bedrooms along with a good amount of closet space. A huge deck flows out from the master bedroom and over the driveway.

It spans the entire width of the house while extending out by eight feet, which provides lots of outdoor space for relaxing as well as shelter for your car. The master ensuite comes with a marble countertop, his-and-hers sinks and an oversize glass shower. The shower is big without becoming obtrusive and taking over the bathroom. Brady says the glass walls on the shower kept the space wide open. “To have it all see-through takes away barriers that would otherwise obstruct views where a normal wall would be,” she says.

It feels like you’re walking up to a home, not a number,” says sales manager Trina Brady.

Submitted photos

Kitchens at Pier 16, above, are built in an open concept layout that flows into the living and dining areas, top. With nine-foot ceilings and chic laminate flooring, the homes are modern and elegant, and include thoughtful details such as quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances and plenty of natural light from the large windows.

Chuckers’ Kirk throws no-hitter

$635,000

Sports Editor It didn’t quite match teammate Nawid Yilmaz’s perfect game a few weeks before, but Brandon Kirk’s no-hitter Sunday was still significant and rare in its own right. Matching a feat that has only been done 274 times in Major League Baseball history, Kirk didn’t allow a Victoria Eagle a base hit as the Richmond City Chuckers earned a 4-0 win at a B.C. Midget AAA tournament game in Kelowna. Teammate Jonah Rose made a notable catch in centre field in the fifth inning to help preserve the feat. “Otherwise Brandon was in complete control,” said Chuckers’ manager Raul Verde Rios. “(Having two amazing pitching feats in the first six weeks of the season) is a pretty incredible story.” Kirk’s achievement comes at a

BRANDON KIRK

time when the Chuckers haven’t had much to celebrate. Preparing to host Chilliwack and Kamloops in a pair of doubleheaders this weekend, Richmond has managed only the single victory in its last five games—including one-run losses, 10-9 and 1-0, to league-leading Victoria Mariners—and now sits fifth in the B.C. Minor standings with a record of 10-6. “It was disappointing to lose the games in Victoria, especially when we were ahead in one of

them, but there’s still lots of time to work on all the things we need to,” said Verde Rios, who calls this month’s stretch the toughest of the season. “Once we get past this I’m sure things are going to get better.” Verde Rios said several of the players, mainly the first-year Chuckers, are still adjusting to a more intense game and a higher level of ball. “We’ve had a lot of mental errors lately and that’s because the players are at times not as disciplined at the plate as they need to be,” he said. “It’s also because they’re playing against better athletes and having to adjust to better pitching as well.” All four of this weekend’s games are scheduled to be played at Latrace Field inside Minoru Park. Saturday’s games against Chilliwack are slated for 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., with Sunday’s start times versus Kamloops at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Mariners dominating Midget fastball Boys have already earned a spot in Westerns by Don Fennell Sports Editor Richmond Mariners are doing swimmingly in their Midget boys’ fastball league, so well in fact they’ve set up an interlocking exhibition schedule with Lower Mainland men’s teams to further challenge themselves. “We don’t expect to win the games against the men, but we do expect to be competitive,” says Mariners’

skipper Marshall Shields. “Seeing the better pitching, having to react to the faster hitting, and just seeing more elite play can only help us.” The Mariners, 7-0 in league play, are a combination of the defending Bantam A and Midget C provincial champions. The 16- and 17-year-olds, who’ve already earned a bye into the Western Canadian Midget B championships Aug. 9 to 11 in Winnipeg, are scheduled to play Richmond’s Bantam A team next Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Palmer Field. The Mariners played the first of eight exhibition games, plus playoffs,

against the men’s teams last weekend. Predictably, they lost both. Richmond lost 8-1 to the Vancouver Meralomas, but the game was scoreless until the top of the fourth inning. Ryan Shields went 1-for-2, scoring once and producing another run on a homerun. The Mariners racked up eight hits in a 18-3 loss to Poco’s Cat & Fiddle. Ryan Shields again had a strong outing reaching base twice, scoring once and adding a RBI while tripling in the first inning. They were also led by two-hit performances by Jordan Mezaros.

Harvey passed on peacefully in the early morning hours of May 11, 2012 surrounded by his loving wife and family. Predeceased by his parents, brother and two sisters, Harvey is survived by his wife Betty, their children Shauna (Ron), Randy (Micheline), Kerri (Al), Mark (Bev), and Margaret (Keith), grandchildren Alissa (Jason) , Ryan, Elizabeth, Jamie (Karen), Cayley (Frank), Catherine, Anne Marie, Alexa, Amy and Scott, and great grandchildren Hope, Grayson, Lachlan, Hudson and Xavier. He is also survived by his sister Alannah ( Bob) and many nieces and nephews. Harvey was born in Edmonton and lived most of his life there until relocating to Richmond, B.C. in 1977. After having proudly served his country during World War II, he began his career at Bennett and Emmott in 1949. A self made man, he worked his way up in the organization and at the time of his retirement in 1986 had achieved the position of CEO. Some of his proudest moments with Bennett and Emmott were the opening of the Richmond ofďŹ ce, and securing the contract for building the motors for what is now known as Skytrain. Harvey valued the friendships he made while at Bennett and Emmott and continued them into his retirement. Harveyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to his work was exceeded only by his love of family. He was never happier than when his family gathered together. Nothing gave him a greater sense of pride than celebrating over 60 years of marriage to his loving and devoted wife Betty, watching his children achieve success in their lives, and being part of the lives of his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

MEDICAL/DENTAL

EMPLOYMENT/EDUCATION

Despite some ongoing health issues, Harvey had an active retirement. Whether he was chairing the strata council at Mariners Village, doing his daily three miles with the mallwalking club at Lansdowne Center, acting as mentor to his grandchildren, polishing his beloved Jaguar , or endlessly pursuing the perfect lawn, he only knew how to do things one way. Fortunately, his way and the right way were one and the same. Harvey was extremely well read and he enjoyed many spirited discussions about politics and current events. A handyman and problem solver extraordinaire, he had a razor sharp wit and sense of humor right up until his ďŹ nal days. A very happy moment for him was seeing the Vancouver Olympics come to fruition. Harvey handled his ongoing health issues with quiet dignity and no complaints. He was extremely grateful for the excellent medical care he received over the years. Many thanks to the health professionals who provided care to him, especially Drs. Sigismund, Dirnfeld and Chang. Special thanks also to Dr. Lobb and the palliative care staff at Richmond General Hospital. A celebration of Harveyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held at Richmond Funeral Home, 8420 Cambie Road, Richmond B.C. , on Monday, July 9, 2012 at 1 pm. Online condolences may be left at www. richmond-funeral.ca . In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC at www.heartandstroke.bc.ca Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to you Harvey! We all raise a glass of red wine to you, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for medicinal purposes onlyâ&#x20AC;?. We are thankful for our time with you and know that we are better people for having had you in our lives. When Irish eyes are smiling, Sure,â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tis like the morn in Spring. In the lilt of Irish laughter You can hear the angels sing. When Irish hearts are happy, All the world seems bright and gay. And when Irish eyes are smiling, Sure, they steal your heart away.

AMENDMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN Pest Management Plan (PMP) No: 107-0128-12/17 Applicant: Canadian National Railway Company (CN), 11717-138th Street, Surrey BC V3R 6T5 (604) 589-6542

The common and trade name of the pesticide proposed for use under this amendment are chloropicrin (Timber Fume). The application method will consist of manually inserting capped vials containing a pre-measured portion of Timber Fume into drilled holes in timbers. The degradable cap on the vial breaks down over time and temperature (within the drilled holes), allowing the liquid Timber Fume to enter the gas phase and move into the surrounding wood. All holes will be plugged with tight ďŹ tting wood plugs following treatment. This ensures that the Timber Fume does not enter a body of water or other environmentally sensitive area. Drilled holes will be located at least 60 cm above the high water mark.

Richmond RCMP Const. Veronica Fox with the numerous entries the detachment has received in the RCMP’s Help Name our Boat Contest. The 7.3-metre rigid hull inflatable Zodiac boat was donated to the Richmond RCMP by the Steveston office of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Elementary school students were invited to help name the boat, either by submitting a written essay outlining how they think the patrol boat would assist the RCMP to serve the community, or creating a piece of visual art. The winner will be announced publicly on Thursday, May 31 at London’s Landing in Steveston.
