›INBRIEF Tsawwassen band wins $10,000 in radio contest If you tune in to 104.3 FM this month don't be surprised to hear hometown boys The Simpson Brothers Band coming through the air waves. The Tsawwassenbased musical group, fronted by 22-year-old twins and South Delta Secondary grads Rob and Rich Simpson, are the winners of Vancouver radio station Shore 104's Best of BC contest for June. The two, who were included in the Leader's annual 30 under 30 edition, will be awarded a cash prize of $10,000 and their winning song "Diamonds" will receive radio play throughout the entire month of June. The Simpson Brothers got their first taste of national fame when they landed a spot as one of eight finalist on CBC reality show Cover Me Canada in fall, 2011. —Staff writer

Joint force 'just conversation' Department open to talks of regionalizing, but current focus remains on Delta CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER

D

elta Police Chief Jim Cessford says he is open to discussing the possibility of forming a regional police service, but at this point the idea is little more than conversation. Cessford was responding to comments made on a Vancouver radio station this week by Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who said he was considering ditching the RCMP and moving to another policing option. Options floated included teaming up with another city or forming a regional service. Brodie said Delta Police are another choice his community might have. "I haven't spoken to Mayor Brodie myself and I would expect that if he was interested in moving in that direction, that he would contact (Delta) Mayor (Lois) Jackson," said Cessford. "If it's something that would work for Richmond and it would work for Delta, obviously we would consider it, but we're not looking to take over business or anybody's job from them. The RCMP do a fine job," he added. Delta Police spokesman Const. Ciaran Feenan said the department hasn't seriously discussed the possibility of regionalization.

"At this point, again, it's just conversation," Feenan said. "Certainly where we're at right now, our focus is on Delta." Delta Mayor Lois Jackson, who chairs the Delta Police Board, said there has been no discussion at the board level or at the Delta council level. "We have been speaking most informally with the mayor of Richmond and he has certainly been asking what the pros and cons are of having our own municipal police force and I have certainly responded. And that's about as far as we have ventured," said Jackson. "Certainly I am open to any discussion with Richmond. We are always available to assist with any information or statistics. We certainly discuss the positive aspects of our Delta municipal police and the system that we use in Delta," she added. Richmond is one of six Metro Vancouver cities that have not yet signed a new 20-year RCMP contract over concerns about costs. Burnaby, North Vancouver City, North Vancouver District, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam also haven't ratified the new deal negotiated by the provincial and federal governments. They were recently given a one-month extension to June 30 to make a decision. It's the second extension given and the

province has warned there won't be any more. Any city that doesn't sign will get formal notice from Victoria that they must either sign or submit a written policing plan to the ministry if they don't plan to sign. Cities have also been warned that if they don't sign they risk losing their federal subsidy, worth 10 per cent of their policing bills. After the first extension, granted in April, Brodie and other Metro Vancouver mayors said their concerns are about more than the pay hikes, which give the RCMP an extra 5.25 per cent over three years. One issue involves an interpretation document that is to accompany the actual contract and would guide how it is interpreted. It's not yet finished, Brodie told Black Press after a Lower Mainland mayors meeting in April, and is the subject of continuing talks between Victoria and Ottawa. "If it's a 20-year contract you must know what you're getting into," Brodie said. "Unless you have the interpretation guide, I'm not sure how you can do that." He said he's also concerned cities may have little real input into a promised review of the contract every five years. —With files from Black Press

Boaters beware Boaters are being advised to use extra caution when travelling on the Fraser River this time of year. The Corporation of Delta posted a notice on June 5 stating that during the spring run-off, the water level on the Fraser is particularly high and the current is very strong, with lots of floating debris being carried downstream. "The water is barely above the freezing temperature; even when the air is warm, a fall into the water can result in a very sudden onset of hypothermia," the advisory says. During freshet conditions, piloting a pleasure craft can become difficult and dangerous for boaters. As such, boaters are advised to be extra careful when travelling on the river due to the higher water velocities and debris in the river. "Please keep a proper lookout and reduce speed to minimize the risk of hitting floating or partially submerged debris," the advisory says. Boaters should ensure they have a marine radio aboard to call on channel #16 or a cell phone to dial *16 for emergency assistance.

Constituents protest Bill C-38 TIRED OF LOW RETURNS? Residents rally outside Conservative MP's office in Ladner

returns up to

CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER

The two dozen people who gathered outside Kerry-Lynne Findlay's Ladner constituency office on Saturday (June 2) all had different reasons for protesting the Conservative government's omnibus budget bill. Some were concerned about the effect Bill C-38, if passed, could have on the environment. For others it was health, employment or democracy. "The one thing I think that was uniting everybody was that they think this omnibus Bill C-38 is kind of being rammed through Parliament and a lot of the information that is being put through shouldn't really be in a money-type budget bill," said Tsawwassen resident Kevin Garvey who attended the rally. Saturday's protest was one of many that occurred outside federal Conservative constituency offices across Canada last weekend. "The point of the exercise was to try and get 13 MPs from the Con-

The Delta-Richmond East constituents didn't have much luck convincing Findlay, who chatted briefly with the protesters while driving out of the office parking lot, to vote against her government. "I asked her straight out, I said 'Will you be voting against this bill?' and she said 'No I can't, it's a confidence bill,'" Garvey said. Bill C-38 is more than 450 pages

and makes changes to dozens of laws. Garvey is concerned that, if passed, the new rules would allow the federal government to fast track major projects such as Deltaport's proposed T2 expansion and the Enbridge Pipeline. "We need to put pressure on the Conservatives to democratically debate all of these non-budgetary, highly controversial items separately, instead of rushing them into place in an anti-democratic omnibus law," he said.

Ladner market kicks off Sunday New and familiar vendors gear up for 16th season CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER

Starting this Sunday (June 10), the streets of Ladner Village will once again come alive with the smell of fresh-cooked food, the sound of live music, and plenty of shoppers browsing an assortment of one-of-a-kind goods. The popular Ladner Village Market is retuning for its 16th season and is set to run on alternating Sundays until early September. “All of our markets pretty well are filled for the season, which is very nice to know, but we certainly are taking people’s names for wait listing and we are holding spots for produce,” says Tracey McKnight, one of the event organizers. Every year, thousands of locals and visitors flock to the open-air market which stretches over three blocks on 48th Street between Elliott and Delta Streets in the heart of the historic town. Shoppers can check out the more than 150 vendors and Ladner merchants selling farm fresh produce, garden art and accessories, hand crafted jewelry, fabric and beauty products, wood, canvas, glass art and more. McKnight says market-goers can expect to see many returning vendors, as well as a few new faces selling

everything from homemade yogurt to stone knives to glass wind chimes. “There is always a newness to each market,” McKnight says. “And then we also have some great little eateries right in the market where you can pick up something and carry it and eat it as you go,” McKnight says, explaining the always-popular chili and salmon burgers will be served up once again this year. “Of course our restaurants are all open and they’ve got their patios open,” she adds. This Sunday's event will feature live entertainment by musical group Mojo Zydeco. “This is the first time they’ve opened our market for the season. Their music is great. You just want to get up and dance,” McKnight says. She encourages individuals and families to come out and see what this year’s market has to offer. “It’s wonderful for the amount of freshness in the food, the quality of the food that is being offered,” she says, adding, “It’s a great way of actually talking to the artisan who has made the product.” The 2012 Ladner Village Market runs on June 10 and 24, July 8 and 22, Aug. 12 and 26 and Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit www.ladnervillagemarket.com for a schedule of live entertainment and featured vendors. reporter@southdeltaleader.com

Mavis Lloyd to help celebrate Diamond Jubilee

I

editor@southdeltaleader.com

f the coronet fits, why not wear it. That's the attitude of long-time Tsawwassen resident Mavis Lloyd who will be donning the sparkling headwear and doing her take on Queen Elizabeth later this summer. The effort is in celebration of the Queen's diamond jubilee—60 years on the throne. And Lloyd, who is originally from the U.K., and has some similar facial features of the famous monarch, will be front and Philip centre at a speRaphael cial party during the Tsawwassen Outdoor Movie Night event on Aug. 11. "I don't see it myself," says Lloyd, 79, of her passing resemblance to the Queen. "But I've been told by other people that I do." The Business Improvement Association of Tsawwassen is organizing the event and went in search of a Queen Elizabeth look alike about a month or so ago and happened upon Lloyd who was encouraged by a friend to go for it. "My friend said, 'Mavis, you're made for it," Lloyd said. "My friend pushed and my husband pulled against it. "It's an unusual thing, but I'll give it a go." Lloyd didn't have to go far to do some research for her new role. She just dipped into her memories of seeing Queen Elizabeth growing up. While not a dedicated "Royal watcher," Lloyd says she recalls the period when the Queen was involved with her soon-to-become husband Prince Philip. "By the time I was a teenager and getting married, she was six years my

senior, so I watched her romance," Lloyd says. "I think she's a remarkable woman, she does 12-hour days, so it makes me look shabby." Lloyd was born in Coventry, England and moved to Canada in the 1950s when it became hard to find adequate housing in the U.K. "There was nowhere to live, in Coventry or anywhere else," Lloyd says, adding she and her new husband at the time, John, lived in a single room and a shared bathroom in a small house. It was during a trip to London when they got the notion that a life outside the U.K. may be more to their liking. "We saw Canada House (part of the High Commission in London), so we went in to find out more about it because we were thinking about traveling and working as an option." They liked what they learned and soon they were on a a seven-day long trip by boat to their new home in Quebec. Her husband, an aerospace engineer, immediately got work, but without a formal education Lloyd started with secretarial work. "My father disagreed with education for women," Lloyd says. But she worked her way up, completed high school, went on to university at McGill and earned a masters degree in reading and learning disabilities and went on to teach in Surrey when the family moved west. Today, she still works, from her home, as a counsellor. It's a role she enjoys for its ability to help people through a variety of challenging circumstances. So, the opportunity to step outside that and engage in something like being Queen for a special occasion was welcomed. "You know, I live quite a serious life, but I do have a large sense of fun," Lloyd says. "And so I'm hoping to use that joyfully and give people pleasure."

Donations rise as locks drop

@southdeltaleader.com

Tsawwassen

Nolan's Locks event provides hefty donation for BC Children's Hospital Foundation The hair dropped to the ground and the total raised went up during the Nolan's Locks fundraising event Saturday (June 2) at the Tsawwassen Skate Park outside the South Delta Recreation Centre. Early estimates put the amount donated in return for around 100 very close trims and pony tail donations at $22,000. The effort was made on behalf of 13-year-old Nolan McLeod who was recently diagnosed with leukemia and is undergoing treatment at BC Children's Hospital. Money raised Sat-

urday will go to the BC C h i l d re n’s Ho s p i t a l Foundation. Those going under the clippers ranged in age from those as young as three to even a few grandpas. And one young girl, who recently had a birthday party and asked for money for charity instead of gifts, donated $200 to the event. "We are overwhelmed by the support shown to Nolan and the generosity of this great community that we live in," said Cheryl Kristiansen, one of those involved in the event's organization. —Staff writer

Go-kart track to close in September Nearby Splashdown Park to keep operating as TFN land undergoes development PHILIP RAPHAEL EDITOR

The days are counting down to the final checkered flag at one of Tsawwassen’s long-time attractions, while another plans to continue making a big splash for the foreseeable future The F440 Racing Challenge go-kart track on Tsawwassen First Nation land will be closing down and parking its mini racers at the end of September. Close neighbour Splashdown Park has at least another five years left on its lease and aims to see that out and possibly even longer. The 1 km, 17-turn track will be making way for a residential development that broke ground May 24. The track’s general manager James MacKenzie, who started the business in June 1994 with his brother, Stephan, said the company developing the 800home Tsawwassen Shores community bought out the remainder of their lease for the land last August. The lease was set to expire in 2019. Over at Splashdown Park, which has been in operation 29 years, owner Tom Oliver said he’s been getting calls on an almost daily basis over the past couple of years asking if the water park is shutting down. “I think that people do not understand that the new development is all going to the east of us. That’s where the confusion is,” Oliver said. editor@southdeltaleader.com

Raising riders Tour de Delta events coordinator brings race experience to a younger generation during the Kids' Crit in Ladner and North Delta A decade ago, Carolyn Dodds saw her very first Tour de Delta race through her hometown of Ladner and was hooked. Today, the tour's coordinator of events is bringing that same rush of excitement she felt for the races to the younger crowd who get to experience it first-hand. Dodds is organizing the two Kids Crit non-competitive races in North Delta ( July 6) and Ladner ( July 7) where two groups—ages six to eight, and nine to 12—get to race on the respective courses before the big guys and gals get down to business. At the finish line there are medals for all the participants, and a draw for a new bike. Dodds says it's a great way for families to get involved with the Tour de Delta. To sign up for the events, visit the Tour de Delta website (tourd-

edelta.com) and click on the Our Events tab and scroll down to the Kids Crit section. All participants must wear a helmet and have their bikes checked out for safety by members of the Team Coastal Cycling Club. One way the little riders can fuel up before the races is to dine on a serving of Dodd's seafood pasta. While she concedes it's not an original recipe, she has made it hers by adding locally caught B.C. Spot Prawns. —Philip Raphael (Throughout the month of June the South Delta Leader's Local Flavour feature will focus on those people who help bring the Tour de Delta to the streets of Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta.)

business for small business owners whose profit margins are on the thin edge currently. Here's my challenge—real not imaginary—to you: Put up $300500,000 of your own money, create a small business, pay the facility lease or monthly rent, equip the business with the necessary wherewithal, fight with stupidity that passes for municipal, provincial and federal government regulations that do more to curtail profitability than anything else, interview and hire suitable employees, pay the various municipal, provincial and federal taxes/licences, etc. then open to the public and hope that the good citizens of your community will support your business sufficiently that in about five years, you will begin to realize a return on your hefty investment all the while working 12-15 hours per

day, each day of the year except the real holidays such as Christmas, Easter and New Years, and then say that "British Columbians need a break." Your arguments for another holiday are superfluous and ought not to have been considered in light of the tight economic situation that today is the thin edge of the economic disaster that struck Greece recently with its mostly insane holidays, short working hours, extensive paid vacations and all other perks associated with socialism. This is what your suggestion might lead to; thank goodness there are three MLAs in BC who have their heads screwed on correctly and face forward when they walk forward. We need more such as those honest politicians.

EDITORIAL

Heritage values With the amount of support this community professes to have in preserving heritage it was interesting to hear how seemingly little public fanfare there was for Delta Council's recent decision to spend a significant amount of public money to save a century-plus old barn. When the commitment to spend up to $600,000 of public funds is made you'd have thought there would have been legions of heritage buffs shouting from the rooftops that Delta has squarely puts its money where its mouth is. They could have also added to the community's motto—"Ours to preserve by hand, heart,... and wallet." It's not every day that Delta shells out this kind of funding, especially when it's not part of any specific financial plan. By recent nature, Delta has been somewhat conservative with its outlays, while at the same time working hard to eliminate existing debt—something politicians and staff need to be commended for. But to suddenly commit that kind of money for heritage preservation was worrying to some who wondered how this was going to play out, especially when there are plenty of other worthwhile projects out there also seeking Delta's financial assistance. For example, if Delta decides to purchase the remaining property at Paterson Park up for sale by current owner Kwantlen Polytechnic University, that will require a very significant investment—one much larger than the amount involved with preserving and relocating the Harris heritage barn from the Crescent Island area to a spot near Kirkland House. Then there's the ongoing need from local sports groups for improved facilities, such as a dedicated field hockey pitch in Tsawwassen that would help ensure the long production line of top quality athletes in that sport continues. Then there's the many arts and seniors groups that could always benefit from some additional funds for programs and resources to enrich the lives of many. Let's face it, money is tight all over. So, hopefully Delta has got it right and that since heritage received the nod this time around the other needy causes across the community will also get theirs in due course.

It's your pick With no mandatory labelling of genetically engineered foods, consumers are tasked with doing their own research Earthwise Society executive director Patricia Fleming says purchasing certified organic produce, like that grown at the Earthwise Farm in Boundary Bay, is one way for concerned consumers to avoid genetically engineered foods. Christine Lyon photo

CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER

L

adner gardener Kristin Crouch is growing her own corn from organic seed this year so that she will have peace of mind knowing exactly what she is putting in her mouth. “I know that a lot of the roadside market corn is going to be genetically modified this year,” said Crouch, president of the Ladner Community Garden Society. First approved by Health Canada in 1994, genetically engineered food products have been modified in the laboratory to enhance certain traits. Like many consumers, Crouch has some health and safety concerns about that. “I just worry that it hasn’t been tested enough, that we don’t know the long-term effects,” she said. “Until we know more about it, I don’t want to eat it.” Last week, Richmond City Council made the decision to oppose the cultivation of genetically engineered plants and trees in their community. Under the motion, Richmond council also plans to urge senior governments to introduce mandatory labelling of foods that contain ingredients from genetically engineered crops. Crouch hopes Delta council will follow suit. “We need to keep up the pace and once Richmond’s done it, I think all the communities need to embrace that and go with that,” she said. Symbolic gesture Hundreds of spectators packed Richmond City Hall on May 28 to watch council unanimously pass a motion banning genetically engineered plants and crops from being grown in the city. The resolution states that apart from three existing dairy farms growing genetically modified corn, no further such crops are welcome. Richmond cannot actually enforce its ban, however, since genetically engineered crops

are regulated by the federal government. For that reason, Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said she was unsure whether any genetically engineered crops are grown in Delta. “We’ve (municipality) never really gotten involved in the regulation of agriculture,” she said. Along with Richmond, B.C.’s Rossland, Kaslo, Nelson, Powell River and Saltspring Island have also passed motions opposing genetically modified organisms within their boundaries. Asked if Delta council would consider a similar motion, Jackson said there would have to first be further education and discussion. “There seems to be lots of pros and there seems to be lots of cons,” she said of genetically engineered crops. “It’s quite a conundrum. I appreciate that producing more and better crops is a good thing for most people,” she said. “But I understand on the other side of the coin though, you may get cross pollination with other kinds of plants which you may not necessarily want to have happen.” Jackson said she would also want to find out what the local farming community thinks. Moving with the times Delta councillor and farmer Ian Paton said most people involved in conventional farming in Delta don’t really have a problem with genetically engineered crops. “It has huge benefits. If people want to see farmers survive, in order to survive you’ve got to move with the times, you’ve got to move with technology, you’ve got to move with what’s going to result in the better profitability,” said Paton, who also chairs council’s Agricultural Advisory Committee. He explained that some genetically modified seeds are able to withstand drought and frost conditions, meaning that entire crops aren’t wiped out during a single heat wave or cold snap. Meanwhile, he says some of the corn grown by dairy farmers is now resistant to certain

herbicides and pesticides. “A farmer used to have to spray his crop several times during the summer so that the grass and weeds don’t overtake the crop that’s growing and now they can spray the field just once and kill off the grass and the weeds but it won’t touch the corn that’s growing.” While he’s not 100 per cent certain, he said he thinks some of the corn seed used in Delta may be genetically modified. But he added that genetic modification is nothing new. “It’s not just about seed. We’ve been dealing with this for years with cattle,” he explained. “You take the very best of bulls from across North America and you mate them with the very best of dairy cows so that you end up with a superior offspring that produces more milk.” Asked if he would have any reservations eating modified food products, Paton said “No, absolutely not.” “It’s regulated by our federal government. They have no problem with it at this point in time.” Consumer choice While the federal government does not require mandatory labelling of foods containing genetically modified ingredients, there is a way for concerned consumers to avoid these products. “If you object to that, if you don’t want to choose it, then one of the things that you can do is you can choose certified organic produce,” said Patricia Fleming, executive director of the not-for-profit Earthwise Society. The Earthwise Farm at Boundary Bay is certified organic, meaning food is produced in an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible way. “It shows a commitment on the part of the farmer to organic practices,” says Fleming, explaining it took three years for the farm to earn its certification. “We chose to do it because we want to show our support for organic land management systems. But we also want to give consumers a choice and I think that, for us, that’s the

Genetically engineered plants • Created to increase resistance to herbicides, pests or disease, or other reasons, such as to increase nutritional value. • GE foods first put on market in 1994. • Soybean, corn, canola and cotton are four main GE crops. • From 1997 to 2010, land cultivated with GE plants has grown to 148 million hectares (365 million acres) from 1.7 million hectares (4.2 million acres). • In 2012, 10 per cent of world’s crops were GE. *Source: City of Richmond most important thing.” Fleming explained that, with just two acres under cultivation, the Earthwise Farm represents a small-scale agricultural model focusing on sustainable practices. It’s a viable alternative to large-scale production, she said. “Instead of growing crops for a global market, you’re growing crops specifically to serve the community that you’re in,” Fleming said, noting that growing a wide range of crops allows Earthwise to enhance biodiversity and resiliency. Know your farmer Crouch said she has changed her shopping habits, explaining that some 80 per cent of packaged food already contains genetically modified ingredients. And with new products regularly being developed—an Okanagan company recently made news trying to get approval from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for a genetically modified apple that won’t turn brown when sliced—Crouch encourages people to find out where their food comes from. “Know your farmer and even your local markets. Ask them,” she said. “I’d like to know that my apple hasn’t been sitting there for six months.” reporter@southdeltaleader.com

GraDS

Congratulations to the class of 2012

High school graduation may seem like the end of a journey. But for those crossing the stage in a ceremony to mark this achievement, keep in mind the adventure is just beginning. There is much more to come for the class of 2012—other milestones to reach, even greater goals to strive towards. Yet graduation is a time to pause and reflect on what it took to get to this point in time—the sacrifices and the hard work. It's also the moment to recall all those who helped make it possible—parents, teachers and friends. They all played a role. So, to the class of 2012, be proud of what you have accomplished so far. And be thankful for the support you got along the way. Take those two elements and hold them close to your heart and move forward confidently in whatever you plan to do, be it higher learning, a trade or something else you may not have discovered yet as your true calling. Yours is the future, and the future is yours to make. From the South Delta Leader to the class of 2012, a well-deserved congratulations.

To sell your house You need more than a sign

Top Tips for Selling Your Home! Your

home is usually your most valuable asset. In today's market, pricing your home is critically important and the selection of the best professional is equally important. A few things to remember: 1. Assessed value – This is not your real estate value. This system uses a mass appraisal system and it does not know the inside of your home, updates and location. The discrepancy between assessed value and market value can be fairly large, higher or lower. 2. Online estimates – These estimates are typically a broad form-based question and answer. They do not visit your home, evaluate the condition, see the views or layout of the home. 3. Be wary of price per foot – What about upgrades, location, view versus non view, waterfront? 4. An appraisal on your home should contain detailed analysis and

photos of your property in comparison to recent sales of similar homes in your area. The appraisal from your Realtor is the best way to price your home competitively in order to maximize your selling price. Under-pricing your home is dangerous – it means you are giving your equity away to the new buyer. On the other hand, overpricing your home is equally undesirable as you will sit on the market longer and be likely to sell for less money than the original market value. Remember To Hire A Professional Realtor With References. A few other things: clean and de-clutter your home, repair things that are broken, and hire a home stager if necessary.

GVHBA’s 19th annual Parade of Renovated Homes

Getting some renovation ideas The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association will hold its 19th annual Parade of Renovated Homes on June 10, sponsored by FortisBC. Starting at 10 a.m., the public will be able to tour eight professionally renovated homes in Burnaby, North Vancouver, Surrey and Vancouver. “Professional RenoMark renovators, many of them award winners, will be on site to offer expert advice and discuss their craftsmanship,” says GVHBA President and CEO Peter Simpson. “Project values range from $135,000 to more than $800,000, offering homeowners an abundance of ideas they can incorporate into their own

renovations.” The renovated homes include a 1950s bungalow, a 1920s heritage home, a bathroom makeover, a basement suite conversion, a wide-ranging interior and exterior renovation and a whole-house transformation. Admission is $10 for adults, and free for children 17 and under. A passport allowing you entrance into every home will be available at the homes. The homes will be open until 4 p.m., and it is recommended to map out your route as the homes will not be available for showings before or after the event. To find the list of participating homes, visit www.gvhba.org.

the elegant large-format porcelain tile flooring continues on the tub/shower surround. A unique feature of Omega is the thicker concrete floor slab and tripleglazed windows that are an integral part of every home. The floors feature more insulation and a thicker cement platform between the floors, which combine to make for an improved building structure. The triple-glazed windows help to isolate exterior sound, so you won’t be bothered by the bustling city noise. Both of these things are demonstrated at the Concord sales centre in Richmond. Guests are invited to jump on the floor to feel

the difference between the standard concrete floors and the Omega floors, and check out the difference in sound that the triple-glazing offers, in comparison to a standard window. If it’s convenience you’re looking for, Omega is certainly the place for you. Located in the heart of Richmond, you are just minutes away from transit, shopping, restaurants, recreation and education. The Vancouver International Airport is about 10 minutes from home, and downtown Vancouver is less than 20 minutes away. All remaining homes are under $399,900. For more information, visit omegaliving.ca or call 604-233-7748.

‘The ultimate low-rise development’

Finding some inspiration at Concord Pacific’s Omega by Kerry Vital

European-inspired architecture comes to Richmond with Concord Pacific’s newest development, Omega. “(In) the Greek alphabet ‘Omega’ is often used to symbolize greatness and the ultimate,” says Concord VicePresident of Marketing Grace Man. “Omega, with its superior construction and refined design details, will raise the bar of similar medium-density projects and become the ultimate low-rise development.” With 245 one- and two-bedroom suites in two buildings, Omega has something for everyone, though Man says the one-bedroom plus study suites are already sold out. The homes range from 546 to 1,042 square feet. The entire development has a European feel, with a lush central courtyard, water features, stone pathways and a children’s play area. “The Omega buildings (are) a modern interpretation of the romantic European architectural design,” says Man. “It emphasizes on a symmetrical form and (is) set in a 20,000 squarefoot lush, green garden. The lit pathways, water features and secluded courtyard seating provide a soothing and tranquil environment.” Inside, the condominums include nine-foot ceilings in most of the living areas and a central heating and cooling system. There is an open balcony or terrace with each suite, and wide-plank laminate flooring throughout the main living area and flex space (depending on the floorplan) is complemented by your choice of two colour schemes – Impression and Reflection. The kitchens have plenty of

thoughtful little touches, from the soft-close hardware on the doors to the waste recycling bin and sliding basket under the sink. The engineered quartz stone countertops and large-format porcelain tile backsplash combine to make for an elegant picture with the stainless-steel appliances, while the laminate cabinetry with open glass display shelving and under-cabinet lighting becomes the cherry on the top of this perfect kitchen sundae. Those little touches continue in the bathrooms, with their engineered quartz stone countertops and a custom medicine cabinet with a mirror, shelves and built-in lighting. The recessed pot lighting is universally flattering, while

The Omega buildings (are) a modern interpretation of the romantic European architectural design,” says Concord Vice-President of Marketing Grace Man.

Submitted photos

The homes at Omega have several chic and modern touches, from the porcelain tile backsplash in the kitchen, above, to the generous bedrooms and flex spaces in some floorplans, top and left.
