Rare ribbon seal spotted in Richmond First sighting of animal in B.C.; 4,000 km from Arctic home by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Steveston’s heart put on a sleeve Sales of trendy T-shirts help raise cash for school supplies and programs by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Haute couture it’s not, but a made-inSteveston T-shirt has quickly become the must-have fashion piece of the season. The T-shirt, emblazoned with seven iconic Steveston street names, made its official debut at Sunday’s Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market as the beginning of a Lord Byng Elementary fundraiser. “It was really positive. We had a few people say this was the best thing

we’ve seen at the market in a long time,” said Dionne McFie, chair of the school’s parent advisory council. The idea started with Hien Tran, who saw similar shirts in California. He planned to make a few Steveston designs for family and friends, then pitched the idea to McFie and other Byng parents as a fundraiser for the council, which collects cash for school supplies and programs. “I’m really hoping these shirts are successful,” said Tran. “They are sure healthier than chocolate almonds.” Moncton, Chatham, Railway, Britannia, One Road, Georgia, Bayview and Steveston cover the shirt, available in black, white and grey. Volunteers behind the project have a goal of selling 500, but with a special Canada Day

edition and onesie in the works, they might beat that target. McFie said the simple shirt is helping put Byng on the map. “We’re proud. Byng is this little jewel in the middle of Steveston,” she said. “I want people to talk about Byng and how wonderful of a school it is.” Principal Al Zarchikoff said the T-shirt helps students draw connections between their longtime school and their historic community. On July 1, T-shirts will be sold at the Steveston Salmon Festival’s trade show and at Sara’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream at 3500 Moncton St. On July 15, T-shirts will be sold at the Steveston market. Orders can also be placed at byngfundraiser@ gmail.com. Regular shirts are $15 for children and $20 for adults.

An unexpected visitor has showed up in an East Richmond float home community—the first sighting of its kind in B.C. A ribbon seal heaved itself up on a marina dock in the South Arm of the Fraser River around noon last Wednesday, about 4,000 kilometres away from its home in the Arctic. Sandra Ens, a realtor with RE/MAX Select Realty, said the 85-kilogram male parked itself on a small wooden dock next to her boyfriend’s float home. “I didn’t even know there was such a thing,” she said. “We thought it was just a mutation of something, and then found out it’s from the Arctic and it was the first time it had ever been seen in B.C.” A call was made to the Vancouver Aquarium’s rescue team to ensure the animal wasn’t hurt. An assessment determined the seal was fine, just lost. “It must have been tired or just wanted a break,” said Ens. She said the seal wasn’t active at first, but by Thursday morning, it was rubbing its belly, stretching and scratching. By 1 p.m. that afternoon, it jumped back into the water. Spending most of their lives in the icy waters off Alaska and Russia, ribbon seals aren’t known for coming ashore. They average 1.5 metres (five feet) long and 80 kilograms (175 pounds). Researchers have found the animals challenging to study because they spend much of their lives floating on ice and in open water. Paul Cottrell, Pacific marine animal co-ordinator for Fisheries and Oceans Canada, confirmed this is the first known sighting of a ribbon seal in B.C. waters. See Page 5

Luxury outlet mall to open on Sea Island Airport makes official announcement; first phase to feature 97 high-end stores by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Phase 1 of a luxury outlet mall will open on Sea Island in the fall of 2014, Vancouver Airport Authority ofďŹ cials have announced. The 459,600-square-foot retail centre—twice the footprint of the Richmond Olympic Oval—is a joint project between the airport and Londonbased McArthurGlen Group. It’s expected to boast the world’s leading fashion brands like Prada, Armani, Burberry and Gucci. “This is an exciting project that will increase the region’s destination appeal for visiting travellers and encourage local shoppers to spend within their own community,â€? said Larry Berg, airport authority president and CEO. It will be built on airport-owned land just south of the BCIT Aerospace Technology Campus on Russ Baker Way. Site preparation is scheduled to begin in August, with the ďŹ rst phase of 97 stores opening in two years. The Vancouver Airport Authority, a not-for-

Gary Bond, McArthurGlen’s CEO of development, said the location, local economic strength and tourism potential appeal to luxury brands that would locate at the centre. Airport authority spokesperson Lara Gerrits said the project will create 200 jobs during construction and approximately 1,000 jobs at the future retail centre. Project ofďŹ cials hope the mall will reverse a trend of shoppers heading across the border to destinations like Seattle Premium Outlets. Sea Island’s mall, however, will carry pricier brands than its mid-market competitor south of the border. The retail centre’s trafďŹ c impact on Sea Island is expected to be “minimal,â€? according to

Project ofďŹ cials also hope to attract transit users by offering them a free shuttle service connecting the outlet with the Canada Line’s Templeton Station and the airport. In March, Sea Island Community Association president Judith Mules-Kirby told The Richmond Review that the mall—with its

promises of green space and family-friendly atmosphere—could become a village square for people of Burkeville. “If all those promises come to fruition, I think it could be a wonderful thing for the island. It could become a real meeting place.� McArthurGlen has developed 20 malls across Europe, each featuring high-end fashion, sporting goods and housewares retailers.

Demolition of ďŹ shing relic recommended

Cockroach infestation closed eatery for a day

New owner wants to flatten Towns Netting building without development plan

A Parker Place eatery became the first restaurant in Richmond shut down in 2012, nearly six months into the calendar year. Good Food, at 1055-4380 No. 3 Rd., was closed by health officials earlier this month following a routine inspection. The restaurant was closed on June 7, and permitted to re-open on June 8. The eatery was closed because of a “critical hazard� of cockroach infestation and unsanitary conditions. According to a restaurant inspection report, live cockroaches were found throughout the premises, including moving across the floor, under equipment and in glue traps. “An inadequate number of glue traps were observed onsite and most were filled with (sic) captures cockroaches, indicating an inadequate frequency of pest control and a substantial pest infestation in this premises.� Regarding the eatery’s cleanliness, the report said: “This premises is in very poor sanitary condition and is ordered closed by Public Health Act Order.� —Martin van den Hemel

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A longtime symbol of Steveston’s ďŹ shing heritage could soon fall under the force of an excavator. City council is being urged to approve the demolition of the old Towns Netting and Marine Supplies store at 3531 Bayview St., located across from the Gulf of Georgia Cannery. The building has been vacant for two years. Last year, Cornerstone Architecture applied to rezone the site to allow a three-storey commercial-residential development,

but council’s planning committee expressed reservations. The property has since been sold and that development application has been withdrawn. Now Penta Builders Group is seeking permission to demolish the structure without a rezoning application due to the building’s “deteriorated condition,â€? according to a staff report by planner Sara Badyal. She noted the new owners are “reviewing development options for the site.â€? The building falls within the Steveston Village Heritage Conservation Area, meaning demolitions require council approval. Staff support the landowner’s request. “The building is in a deteriorated condition and is not an identiďŹ ed heritage resource,â€? noted Badyal. If approved, the landowner will surround the site with security

matter late Tuesday. Final approval would still be required at a regular council meeting.

Visitor from arctic was sighted in Seattle earlier this year From Page 1 He said it’s the same one to appear in Seattle in January. It was also spotted in Bellingham three weeks ago, a match confirmed through photographs. “The good news is he’s slowly moving north. Hopefully he keeps going, but he’s got a long way to go,” said Cottrell. Fisheries officials will continue to monitor the animal, but Cottrell said it appears to be healthy. Anyone who sees it is asked to keep their distance and call the B.C. Marine Mammal Response Network at 1-800-465-4336.

Most wanted fugitive caught in Ontario Apollo Alex Verde, who’s eluded police for years, was arrested in late April by the major fraud unit of the organized crime section of the Durham Regional Police in Ontario. The 38-year-old, who had several aliases and was also known as Jaspal Singh Virdi, was transported back to Richmond to face numerous charges dating back to 2004. According to the RCMP’s commercial crime section, Verde is wanted for 32 counts of fraud or fraud-related offences including 11 counts of fraud over $5,000, 14 counts of uttering forged documents, and five counts of attempted fraud. He’s alleged to have committed extensive credit card fraud and obtained

unauthorized credit card data from one of Canada’s largest credit reporting agencies. “The illegally obtained credit information allegedly allowed Verde to access bank accounts and also obtain high value credit cards. Many of these credit cards found their way to Las Vegas area casinos, where large cash advances were obtained,” police said. “He went so far as to steal the title to a property owned by his own mother, and then obtained a mortgage on the property, using those funds to finance a Ferrari.” Verde is also wanted on charges in Ontario, Alberta and the United States. —by Martin van den Hemel

find any mates though, so it may well find the drive to reproduce may pull it further north.” In the meantime, he suggests locals keep their eyes peeled for the

City in search of kids’ castle operator

City Board

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter It might be the coolest kids’ castle—or perfect princess palace—in need of a lord. Richmond City Hall is searching for a non-profit provider to operate a future child care facility inside the replica Coeverden Castle. The castle was a longtime fixture at Fantasy Garden World in the Shellmont neighbourhood and is the only building left standing after the theme park’s demolition. Townline Gardens Inc. is retrofitting the building, at 10640 No. 5 Rd., as part of a development deal with the city that paved the way for a residential-commercial project known as The Gardens. The 4,000-square-foot child care centre will be designed to accommodate as many as 37 children of various ages. It will feature another

4,000 square feet of outdoor play space, and will be adjacent to a future city park. The city-owned facility will be leased to a nonprofit child care provider for a nominal fee for at least 10 years. The city is accepting expressions of interest

until Sept. 14. Building and site plans have yet to be drafted, but the centre could be ready for operation as soon as the fall of 2014, according to the city’s request for expressions of interest document. The castle is a replica of Coevorden Castle in The

Netherlands. Coeverden is the ancestral home of Captain George Vancouver. The Dutch donated the castle to Vancouver for Expo 86. Former premier Bill Vander Zalm subsequently bought the castle and moved it to Fantasy Gardens.

GUEST EDITORIAL: There should be no ‘get out of jail free’

L

ast week, a 20-yearold man from Surrey received a month in jail for his part in the Stanley Cup riots, which took place just over a year ago, on June 15, 2011.

Many people are hoping this sets a precedent for future sentencing. It should. A one-month term for taking part in a riot, in which millions of dollars in property damage was done, police were assaulted or ignored, 150 were injured and the reputation of the Vancouver area was severely damaged, is light punishment. However, it is very likely that many of those charged will not

receive any punishment. Their cases may well be thrown out of court because of excessive delay, because of the severely plugged nature of the court system. If a case is delayed for 18 months or longer, through no fault of the defence, it is quite likely it will be thrown out when it finally comes to court. This is completely unacceptable. While it says volumes about the state of the court system, something that few people pay attention to unless they are directly involved, it sends a very bad message to the rioters. It tells them that they should do all they can to delay and drag things out until they are charged.

Above all, they should not plead guilty. They can simply wait for the system to take its course, and almost automatically, many of them will get off scot-free. The provincial government should set up a temporary court which can solely deal with cases involving the rioters. It should wait a few months until more of them are charged, and then deal with the cases, one by one, in a prompt and efficient manner. Everyone who is charged in connection with the riot should face trial, and do time if found guilty. If such a temporary court is set up and it proves to work well, the province could then look at using it in some other situations — in places

where the courts are plugged with cases, such as Surrey (where Langley cases are heard). If rioters who did so much damage to the reputation of this enrire area are able to get off without any consequences, because of the backlog of cases in the court system, there is something seriously wrong with our criminal justice system. No one should be able to get away with taking part in a riot. If they can, we are no longer a civilized society. The province can do something about this, and it should. It must assert authority over lawlessness. —Langley Times

Choosing work instead of welfare

B.C. Views Tom Fletcher The B.C. government has taken some modest steps to tighten up the province’s income assistance system, and to encourage people to work when they are able to. With Premier Christy Clark swooping in to take credit, Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux unveiled changes that included fixing the worst mistake in B.C. Liberal policy. Cadieux acknowledged that B.C. was the only province that clawed back all earnings from employable welfare recipients, and she announced that from now on they will be able to earn up to $200 a month without penalty. The exemption for disabled people is increased from $500 to $800 a month. Another important change is requiring welfare recipients to file income tax returns. People can now do temporary work when it comes along, report the income and take advantage of the various tax credits that come from participating in society instead of just living off it. Any experience earning money is valuable experience. With baby boomers starting to retire in big numbers, the expected labour shortage has begun across Western Canada. And

yet, increasing numbers of foreign workers are coming in to do farm and other work, while many young people are unemployed. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon took note of this during his budget preparations. Increasing numbers of young, employable people were applying for welfare in southern B.C., while jobs go begging in the booming northeast. Falcon mused about setting up a program to provide training and plane fare for these people, an idea quickly dubbed “welfare air.” Another effort to get young people working is Jobfest, a rock-themed road show currently touring northern B.C. towns. It attracts young people with music and sou-

venirs like drumsticks and guitar picks, and offers them skills assessment using sexy iPad apps and graphics that depict carpentry as cool. If Jobfest and welfare air sound a bit desperate, it’s because they are. They illustrate our society’s problem. We have a public school system where students pass whether they do the work or not. The culture assumes self-esteem is more important than achievement. The teachers’ union constantly sets an example that the way to get what you want is to stamp your feet and demand it from government. What do we expect young people to learn? And how easy is it for B.C. to slip into a Greece-like

tailspin, where a majority expects to be carried on the backs of the shrinking minority who do productive work? Old-timers might recall when Mike Harcourt’s NDP government took over from the allegedly miserly Social Credit regime and raised welfare rates. They compounded that mistake by relaxing eligibility rules and making it easier for employable people to stay on welfare. After a couple of years of this wealth redistribution, 10 per cent of the B.C. population was on welfare, with more piling on every day. Faced with the results of this staggering blunder, Harcourt lashed out at “cheats, deadbeats and varmints” scamming B.C.

taxpayers and launched a crackdown on fraud. Later the NDP cut the basic rate for single employables to $500 a month. Today it stands at $610, and the NDP looks poised to repeat history. Surrey MLA Jagrup Brar did a month-long publicity stunt in January, living on welfare by wandering from shelter to food bank with TV cameras trailing behind. Brar would have been better off if welfare air had been available. Instead of learning to live off the burgeoning urban handout industry, he could have gone up to Dawson Creek or Fort St. John and worked as a labourer.. •Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter for Black Press.

letters Science lessons Editor: Re: “B.C. committee rejects pesticide ban,” Richmond Review, May 18. The B.C. Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticide use should be commended for examining the issue of urban pesticide use so thoroughly. The committee received 8,675 submissions and held 22 meetings where presentations were made by dozens of witnesses including experts from Health Canada, environmental groups, industry organizations, scientific organizations and academics. In the end, the committee made 17 recommendations but came to the conclusion that scientific evidence does not warrant preventing British Columbians from buying

and using approved pesticides so pesticides should not be banned in B.C. The committee did its due diligence on this topic and discovered that pesticides in Canada are regulated by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency which employs over 350 scientists who are experts in their field. The review process involves a comprehensive set of 200 tests and a review of all scientifically credible studies that exist to ensure the product will not cause harm to people, animals or the environment. If the report from the committee had been different and they had instead recommended a ban, the groups that are unhappy with the actual outcome would be commending the government on a thorough process that looked at all available science before making the decision they did. It’s ironic that these same groups only

like the “growing and suggestive body of evidence” when it yields the answer they want—fortunately for Canadians science doesn’t work that way. The B.C. Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticide Use did look at all available science and made the right decision to continue to ensure British Columbians have access to useful tools to protect private and public properties from pests. Lorne Hepworth President, CropLife Canada Editor: Re: “City’s bold stand not based on science,” Letters, June 13, in response to “City takes bold, progressive stand on frankenfoods,” Editorial, May 24. Even though the letter-writer places himself in the public health community, he as-

sumes that the risk of exposure to lawn and garden pesticides is very low and doesn’t warrant an outright ban on the cosmetic use of pesticides. He prefers to address the issue “through education, promotion of lowest toxicity pesticides and influencing the federal government to deregister certain applications.” Obviously, the letter-writer is poorly informed on this issue and assumes that he is qualified to tell what true science is all about. His statement on GMOs (genetically modified organisms) is just as biased. He claims that criticism of GMOs and the attempts to ban them are not based on science, so we may ask: “Whose science is he talking about?” The answer should be: “The self-interested science of the chemical industry!” K.

Their hopes, struggles and moments of humour are captured in the 76-minute documentary film The Clean Bin Project, which will be screened Friday in Richmond as a prelude to the Your Kontinent film and media arts festival. Your Kontinent returns to Richmond Cultural Centre July 19 to 22. Clean Bin chronicles a light-hearted competition set against the issues of waste problems in a throw-away society of a continent where consumerism reigns supreme. The filmmakers, who describe their work as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super Size Me, have toured the film across Canada by bicycle, taken it to New Zealand and have collected nine awards in the process. They’re now working on an educational package for schools, translations are in the works and the DVD release of the film is set for July 17. The filmmakers are already planning a second film—this one on food waste. Rustemeyer, a 33-yearold North Vancouver native, works for an environmental consulting

What did you learn from making this ďŹ lm? “In terms of zero waste, I learned that composting is the single biggest thing you can do to reduce your garbage and that avoiding single use items like plastic bags and coffee cups is a close second. I also learned a ton about ďŹ lmmaking; I realize now that it’s important to not just act sustainably, but also share your story, so others can be inspired to do the same. As independent ďŹ lmmakers with very little budget, social media was invaluable for building a community of people who are passionate about the same things we are.â€? How much of what you did in the ďŹ lm has stayed with you? “It has been a couple years since we ended the ofďŹ cial project, but we still have very little waste. Once we’d made those habits of reducing and recycling, it was hard to go back. We still have a compost and we avoid overly packaged food and make lots of things from scratch like deodorant and crackers. Our only garbage can is about the size of what you’d put in your bathroom, and we take it out every couple months.â€?

food On the Steveston Farmers Market and simple dinners

Richmond 365 Lindsay Anderson Lindsay Anderson is dining out a 365 Richmond restaurants in 365 days, taking photos, shooting videos and blogging about the experience as part of a Tourism Richmond campaign. The Richmond Review will publish an excerpt from one of her blog entries each week. See www.365daysofdining. com for Anderson’s blog. Farmers Markets, I adore you. Whatever city I am in, however many dollars line my pocket, whatever season it may be, I am faithfully yours. You’re busy, you’re festive, you bring the community together, and you’re fun. You’re a chance for hard-working farmers, cooks, bakers, and artisans to sell their goods directly to people,

shortening the food chain to the width of a mere handshake. You persevere through rain and you shine in the sun; if you’re the Steveston Market, you sit on a harbour with the historic Gulf of Georgia Cannery watching over you. There are kids dancing with reckless abandon to your live music, and happy, hungry bloggers spilling sauce all over their pants while enjoying platefuls of currywurst..... In just an hour I ran into two people I’ve met in Richmond, making the city seem all the more small and friendly. Just a block away from the heart of town, the Steveston market runs every second week through the summer and offers local produce (hello strawberry season), woodworking, jewelry, handmade soap, jams, freshly baked bread, baked goods, hot lunches, and more. After noshing on a wood-fired pizza, bratwurst, and a cinnamon bun, we strolled around and picked up goods for later: a loaf of crusty sourdough, freshly-churned butter,

carrots, and strawberries, and some signature Steveston tea for my mom. Crunchy, chewy, sweet, and real, it was all simple and extraordinary. The bread, butter, and produce came to about $16, with plenty of leftovers. I’d highly suggest a trip to the Steveston Farmers Market during the

summer. Vendors come from not only Richmond but across the lower mainland, showcasing just how abundant this region is. It’s the perfect opportunity to support local producers, satisfy your hungry belly, explore the village, and relax. It’s nice to take some time to relax.

Staff Reporter Catering to small businesses is one thing; knowing precisely the growing pains and challenges they endure is another matter. So while Richmond lawyer Dana Gordon’s recently DANA GORDON opened legal practice caters specifically to small firms, since she’s running a small business on her own, she brings that valuable insight to the table for her clients. “Running a small business on your own is difficult,” the mother of two told The Richmond Review Tuesday. Gordon has been a lawyer for seven years, and decided to launch Benchmark Law Corporation last January after working for the B.C. Medical Association. She was inspired to start her own business because she’s always helped friends and colleagues with business issues on the side. She realized that there are probably a lot of people who are starting their own business but can’t afford the typical legal rates which are north of $250 per hour. Her business model is targeted toward the myriad small businesses that comprise 98 per cent of the market in B.C., she said. While she offers legal advice, she’s also doing all her own accounting and marketing work, and remains active in her young children’s lives, with a third child on the way. See Page 18

Controversy over teen drinking scuttles grad party An after-grad party for a group of students from the prestigious Southridge private school in South Surrey was cancelled by the Sportstown BC complex in Richmond after a controversy over the wording of a waiver document that said the facility would not be held responsible for “intoxication and/or alcohol poisoning”

no plan to serve liquor to the teenage grads, the spokesperson said Tuesday. According to him, parents were asked to sign the waiver releasing Sportstown from responsibility if a grad got injured as a result of consuming alcohol, because teens have been known to drink at parties, even when booze is banned. “There’s a good chance someone is going to sneak in drinks,” the spokesperson said, noting it is not practical to search kids for hidden drinks.

It appears that someone – possibly a parent – objected to the wording of the waiver and tipped off The Province newspaper. After learning the party would be the subject of a story, Sportstown cancelled the party, the manager said. “It ain’t worth the hassle.” The head of Southridge school, Drew Stephens, said the South Surrey school was not involved with the event and did not approve of it.

From Page 17 By running a virtual office, and dispensing legal advice either over the phone, or by e-mail, she manages to keep her expenses down and passes on the savings to her customers. What differentiates her from other law firms is that she offers flat rates for services, and rarely bills by the hour. If someone needs a contract written up, she’ll inquire about what’s needed and quote them a fee. “A lot of people can feel intimidated going to a larger firm,” she said Gordon said lots of her clients have had bad experiences with law firms, or have never had legal assistance before. “I try to be very approachable,” she said. “It’s been great. I find a lot more satisfaction in it.” Gordon said running her own business affords her a flexible schedule that means she can be there for her children, whether it’s a school or daycare event, or a doctor’s appointment. “I’m not in it for the big bucks. If I wanted to make big bucks, I would go downtown.” As her children grow, Gordon sees the opportunity to grow her business, perhaps bringing another lawyer or two on board. But she said she’s planning to remain small-business focussed. “I want to keep the small boutique feel to it.”

Stecher could be sleeper in NHL draft Diminutive blueliner played in all situations while leading Vees to Canadian Junior A championship by Don Fennell Sports Editor The annual National Hockey League Entry Draft goes this weekend in Pittsburgh, and there’s at least the chance a player from Richmond could be selected. Though defenceman Troy Stecher is unranked, the 18-year-old’s stock continues to rise following a stellar 2011-12 season with the Canadian Junior A champion Penticton Vees, capped by his selection as the top defenceman at the national Royal Bank Cup finals in Humbolt, Sask. He averaged 30 minutes a game with the BCHL team, played in all situations, and wore an “A” on his sweater as an assistant captain. He also suited up for champion Canada West at the 2011 World Junior A Challenge in Langley. Not surprisingly, Vees’ head coach and general manager Fred Harbinson is one of his biggest fans. “Troy is a competitor who plays hard on the puck,” says Harbinson. “For a dman he’s not the biggest guy on the ice (the team’s website lists him at a generous 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds) but is very strong positionally and his will to win puck battles is very high. There are few times when the puck ends up in the corner that Troy doesn’t come out with it. He was an integral part of us winning a national championship and it was a well-deserved credit that he was selected the top D-man at the RBC.”

Harbinson remembers the first time he met Troy, two years ago at a restaurant in Penticton. “He was with his father and looked like he was about 10 years old, but he had a very good confidence about him. It was a confidence that made it tough on me not to have him on the team as a 16 year old.” A stickler for hard work—“it’s non-negotiable as far work ethic is concerned”— Harbinson was immediately impressed by Stecher’s ability to bring it every day and his desire to succeed. “He’s matured and improved a lot in his two years here,” says Harbinson. “There are areas he can still grow but he’s willing to understand that he’s still got a lot to learn. He’s very coachable. You’d be amazed at how some players maybe don’t have their mind as open as Troy.” Already a good skater, Stecher is also blessed with good vision on the ice. And Harbinson believes that as he gets physically stronger—which won’t be a problem given that’s he’s routinely in the gym working out—his shot will also improve. But like Mike Reilly, his blueline partner all of last season with the Vees, he needs an NHL team to look at his steady play and potential instead of his lack of height. A Minnesota native, the sixfoot, 165-pound Reilly was chosen in the fourth round (98th overall) in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets. See Page 20

Stecher was top d-man at RBC national championships From Page 19

Harbinson compares Stecher favourably to former NHLer Brian Rafalaski, who after being passed up in the NHL Entry Draft honed his skills in Europe for a couple of years before signing as a free agent with the New Jersey Devils. He went on to play 11 seasons in the NHL and won three Stanley Cups before retiring in 2011 as a member of the Detroit Red Wings. “It took (Rafalski) a bit longer to be appreciated, though I think Troy has already gained the respect of our league as a kid who will put the work in

and continue to get better,” he says. ‘You could compare him to a lot of different, undersized defencemen who, regardless of how skilled they are, all have an extremely high compete level. Certainly Troy has that and it’s why he wore a letter. He did an amazing job as one of our core leaders and we don’t win as many games without him clearly being a big part of our team. He played some of his best games in our most important games and those are the type of players you want around. As far as point production, as his shot improves that will create more

opportunities.” For his part, Stecher is taking it all in stride. At least outwardly. “I’ve talked to a bunch of teams, but no one’s told me they plan to draft me,” he says. “If I don’t get drafted it’s not the end of the world. A lot of players get drafted and don’t make it. I’ll be disappointed sure, but I’ll look at it the same way as if I lost a game—battle hard the next day and train just as hard as I can.” Committed to play at University of Nebraska at Omaha next season, Stecher has al-

ways had to overcome biases that he was too small. Each time, he’s proven the critics wrong and emerged a more complete player. He’s especially grateful for the confidence Harbinson and the Vees showed in him, helping him to grow as a player and person. “They treated me very well and gave me every opportunity to succeed,” he says. “In Midget (playing for Richmond Minor) I was known more as an offensive defenceman but in Penticton I learned how to play as more of a stay-at-home guy. And now that you’re unable to clutch and grab, I think

it’s a benefit for me to have quicker feet.” Stecher, who says he’s been lucky to have been surrounded by good people throughout his development, is nevertheless surprised to be where he’s at. “I’m kind of speechless because I never thought I’d be where I am today,” he says. “But I’m definitely not in a rush. I think you’ve got to experience everything.” Stecher was surprised when he was named an assistant captain with the Vees at the start of last season, but welcomed the honour—and the

challenge. Now, regardless if he’s drafted this weekend or not, his goal is to continue to get stronger. “I’ve always based my summer on building strength in my legs and getting quicker. I think that’s where all my power comes from,” he says. “But I’ve also got to work on gaining strength in my upper body to be able to better play against some bigger guys. I like to think of myself as a hard-working guy who is willing to sacrifice for the team every single night and be considered a leader on and off the ice.”

Marquardt, rowing mates celebrate World Cup victory in Munich by Don Fennell Sports Editor Rowers, at least in North America, aren’t used to being asked for their autographs. But in Germany, where the sport enjoys an enormous fan base, it’s a sure sign of respect. So Richmond’s Darcy Marquardt was only too happy to oblige last weekend in Munich, where she and her Canadian women’s heavyweight 8 team celebrated a gold

medal victory in the Samsung World Rowing Cup. “As rowers we tend to fly under the radar so it is kind of nice. They really make you feel like a pro,” said Marquardt. After being edged for top spot by a mere .03 seconds by the U.S. (which didn’t compete in Munich) at last month’s World Cup race in Lucerne, Switzerland, the Canadian crew—bound for this summer’s London Olympics July 27 to Aug. 12—were even more motivated to

finish first in the field in Munich. Canada’s time was six minutes, 19.31 seconds, with Romania second in 6:20.72 and Great Britain third in 6:22.31. “Our goal was to set the tone and pace for the middle 1,000 metres of the race, and we were able to open up our lead by clear water over the Romanians and the rest of the field,” said Marquardt. “It was a cool feeling to hear Lesley (coxswain Thompson-Willie) calling for more and feeling the crew respond.

The neat thing is that six out of the nine of us, including Lesley, won their first-ever World Cup.” The crew is now heading back to London, Ont. for the final six weeks of training until hopefully the Olympic final. “This World Cup (win) is a great confidence boost but we know that all other countries will be stepping up their games and that the Olympic regatta will be an even bigger performance,” concluded Marquardt.

Richmond’s Darcy Marquardt is anxious for the start of the 2012 Olympic Summer Games.

Richmond extends lead Win over Victoria avenges earlier loss to Shamrocks With seven games remaining in the regular season, the Richmond Roadrunners are poised to ďŹ nish atop the B.C. Intermediate A Lacrosse League standings. But it’s not by chance that the locals (11-1) enjoy a four-point lead and a game in hand on the Victoria Shamrocks, after avenging their only loss with a 12-9 victory over the latter Sunday at Minoru Arenas. Richmond can score with the best of them, as their 150 goals in 12 games (second only to Victoria’s 184) attests. And they’re equally proďŹ cient defensively, allowing a league-low 91 goals. Cody Nass, Richmond’s leading scorer and fourth in the league with 46 points, had two goals and one assist to pace the Roadrunners’ offence against the Shamrocks. Josh McLaughlin and Ryan Vogrig also scored twice, with the latter also helping to set up three of the goals. Spencer Bromley, Jonathan Bailey, Brad Hofmann, Reed Leclaire and Griffen Leclaire had the other Richmond goals while Tysen Stoddart, Shawn Hanley, Tiernan Docherty and Marcus Quon also contributed to the scoring.

“LADY” NEEDS A GOOD HOME WITH YOU!

“LADY”, ID # 266128, SF, DSH, 3 YEARS 1 MONTH Lady arrived at the Richmond SPCA via the Drive for Lives Program. She was surrendered by her original owner due to the owner’s allergies. Lady is a very friendly and affectionate cat who loves to be scratched behind the ears. Just like her name, she is very lady-like. Lady will do best as the only cat in the house as she does not play other cats. It is a big commitment to own a cat, but Lady will make those years well worth it.

Volunteer milestones ing at the Richmond Cultural Centre last Thursday.

Around Town Amanda Oye

F

orty years is no small accomplishment—a fact that was recognized at Volunteer Richmond’s 40th annual general meet-

Around 100 people came out including Mayor Malcolm Brodie who gave a speech congratulating Volunteer Richmond on the work it has done in the community. “It’s a milestone, … it’s a celebration of people involved in our community,” said Elizabeth Specht, executive director of Volunteer Richmond Information Services. “It keeps getting better.”

Individual volunteer milestones were recognized that night as well. Seven volunteers and four staff were recognized for 5, 10, 15 or 20 years with the organization. “I always do like the recognition part,” said Ryan Luetzen the communications coordinator at Volunteer Richmond. Luetzen put together two video presentations as a special addition to the AGM to showcase and celebrate the organizations last 40 years. “You just see how

much the organization has done,” he said. After the videos, formal presentations and speeches were done, those in attendance enjoyed some food and conversation. “There is always a good feeling after an AGM—tonight was no different,” Luetzen said. “There is always a sense of accomplishment after something like this.” Amanda Oye covers the social scene. amanda.oye@telus. net.
