Weather didn’t spoil Canada Day weekend

Anti-idling bylaw approved by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Ships to Shore festival piggy-backed well with Steveston Salmon Festival by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It’s not how you start, but how you finish, the adage goes. And so it turned out for this year’s Canada Day weekend, when Saturday’s showers kept many people at home, but by Sunday, tens of thousands of Canadians proudly donned red to celebrate the nation’s birthday during the 67th annual Steveston Salmon Festival. “It was fantastic,” said Janice Froese, executive director of the Steveston Community Society. “Despite some poor weather, we had a really great event.” Organizers for the first time spread out the Canada Day celebrations over two days, but the cold and rain on Saturday kept most people at home. “From the public’s perspective, it didn’t look open,” she said. “But Sunday turned out terrific.” A core group of about 30 organizers will meet later this month to critique this year’s event, and once again try to improve on it, and consider whether to put in all the extra work required to hold a two-day event again next year. Canada Day 2013 lands on a Monday, meaning the opportunity for a weekend-long celebration is again a possibility. Whether the City of Richmond piggy-backs another Ships to Shore event to the Salmon Festival remains to be seen. But from Froese’s perspective, the marriage between the two events worked out well. “From their end of things, I think it was good. We’re getting nothing but positive feedback.” Froese has been helping organize the festival for seven Amanda Oye photo years now, and she thinks this year’s event was the best Eamon Lefebvre, dressed up as Sammy, and Alex Lindsay, who were part of the Steveston to date.

Motorists who allow their vehicle to idle longer than three minutes on public property will soon face a fine of $60—if caught in the act. City council has given third reading to bylaw amendments aimed at curbing unnecessary vehicle pollution. After the unanimous vote, fourth and final reading is now a formality. Forty-six B.C. municipalities already have bylaws restricting vehicle idling, according to a B.C. Ministry of Environment report cited by staff. Under Richmond’s new regulations, motorists who exit their vehicle while it’s running—for any length of time—will also be committing a bylaw offence. The bylaw changes do not apply to private property—such as restaurant drive-throughs and mall parking lots—and enforcement will be a challenge, but staff say the new rules will serve as a deterrent. Bylaw officers frequently find vehicles idling unnecessarily on city streets, including large trucks, taxis and charter buses, according to bylaws manager Wayne Mercer. Exemptions under the proposed anti-idling rules extend to emergency vehicles, tow trucks, armoured vehicles, utility service vehicles and bylaw enforcement vehicles. Also exempt are vehicles used in parades, those carrying passengers where loading or unloading can take more than three minutes and vehicles in which a running engine is required to power onboard equipment. The $60 fine rises to $100 if not paid within 61 days.

This year’s Salmon Festival earned rave reviews From Page 1 And from the feedback she’s received so far, many people are in agreement. The parking lot of the Steveston Community Centre this year served as a larger food court, and that resonated well with festival goers. The carnival was shifted a little east onto the baseball field, which worked to spread out the crowds, which Froese estimates was similar to years past on Canada Day, in the range of 70,000 people. “Our sponsors were generous beyond

words, and we had over 400 volunteers. The festival couldn’t happen without those sponsors and the whole army of volunteers who work their butts off.” Froese thinks Sunday’s overcast skies were a bit of a blessing, keeping the weather pleasantly warm versus scorching hot. In her first couple of years with the festival, she recalls really hot event days, with some people passing out and others suffering from heat exhaustion. “Thank you to everybody who came out and had a good time,” Froese said.

Steveston now a penguin Aquarium finds fishing village a suitable fit for penguin by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Steveston has waddled away from Richmond all the way to Stanley Park. In name, at least. After a month-long contest, the Vancouver Aquarium has named one of its seven new African penguins after Richmond’s famous fishing village. Aquarium staff chose names of British Columbia places for their newest arrivals, after splashing through 600 suggestions submitted as artwork, essays, poems and videos. Local resident Winnie Kwok shamelessly touted a village full of fish ‘n’ chips and heritage in her video entry, which included an original song about Steveston the Penguin. In her video, Kwok sings her ode to the clumsy creature while playing

a photo slideshow of a penguin plush-toy enjoying the boardwalk—even sitting down to a bowl of shrimp. For her efforts, Kwok will receive a one-year family membership to the aquarium and a VIP penguin experience. Steveston the Penguin can be spotted at the aquarium sporting a unique red beaded identification bracelet along with his six friends: Lillooet, Tofino, Hope, Nelson, Sechelt and Salt Spring. These penguins, although native to South Africa, were bred at another aquarium through the Species Survival Plan program. “We are always looking for fun ways to engage with our visitors,” said the aquarium’s Clint Wright in a Tuesday news release. “The panel of judges chose names that resonate both with the staff who work with the animals and with our visitors.” The new penguin exhibit is located between the aquarium’s Wild Coast and Canada’s Arctic exhibits, and includes penguinthemed crafts and family activities.

Sockeye salmon along the west coast are producing far fewer returning offspring than in the past and the SFU fishery scientists who have documented the trend say it suggests climate change may be a factor. Randall Peterman said the study he co-authored found 24 of 37 sockeye stocks from Washington State to Alaska lost productivity since 1985, with the hardest hit runs no longer even replacing

themselves. He said the fact the decline has been widespread across both pristine and heavily disturbed watersheds points to non-local “shared mechanisms” as the more probable cause, rather than river-specific logging or pollution. “It’s much more likely that what’s causing these changes is occurring over a large area,” said Peterman, a professor in Simon Fraser University’s School of Resource and Environmental Management. Warming oceans could be reducing the salmon food supply in the north Pacific, sending more predators towards the sockeye or increasing their vulnerability to pathogens, he said. The culprit could also be affecting sockeye in freshwater, Peterman added.

Warming oceans could be reducing the salmon food supply in the north Pacific.

A pathogen – either naturally occurring or spread by fish farms – could be amplified by climate changes and infecting sockeye in rivers that later die at sea. Preliminary findings

were presented in 2011 to the Cohen Inquiry, which reports in the fall with recommendations on halting the decline in Fraser River sockeye. But Peterman said the newest analysis shows the pattern of declining productivity has spread northward to more watersheds over time. “That trend of spreading northward is indicative of possibly climate-driven processes that become more extreme in the south first and work their way north,” he said. “The evidence is much stronger than it was.” The theory of a fish food shortage on the high seas

is backed in part because sockeye have tended to return significantly underweight in recent years. The food supply is expected to decline as the ocean warms. But Peterman noted increased competition for the same food supply is another possibility. The number of pink salmon feeding in the same area of the north Pacific has more than doubled, largely the result of “ranching” of pinks by Russians and Alaskans. The study was published in the Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences.

Garage gutted in Bates Road blaze One person was taken to hospital suffering from burns and smoke inhalation when a garage behind a single family house on Bates Road—near No. 3 Road and Williams— was gutted by fire Monday afternoon. Richmond Fire-Rescue crews were on the scene dousing the remnants of the fire around 4:30 p.m. The home was not damaged. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Steveston fishing store to be flattened Demolition approved for old Towns Netting and Marine Supplies store in village by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A former fishing supplies store that’s kitty-corner to Steveston’s once-mighty

fishing fleet will soon be flattened. Penta Builders Group won unanimous approval from city council June 25 to demolish the old Towns Netting and Marine Supplies store at 3531 Bayview St., located in Steveston Village 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 threestorey commercial-residential development, but the property has since been

sold and the development application withdrawn. What Penta has planned for the site isn’t yet known, as it has yet to submit a rezoning application. The building isn’t designated heritage by the city, but lies within the Steveston Village Heritage Conservation Area, in which demolitions require council approval. Penta cited the structure’s “deteriorated condition” as the reason to demolish the building, according to a staff report.

The Hawaiian Chieftain was towing the schooner Mallory Todd on Sunday.

For Angela Burnett, Sunday’s Canada Day celebration was marred by the conduct of a Pacific Pilotage Authority vessel, whose actions on Sunday led to damage while the Hawaiian Chieftain was towing the schooner Mallory Todd. Burnett was aboard the Mallory Todd, which was having difficulty making its way up the Fraser River due to the strong currents. The captain of the Hawaiian Chieftain, in town for the City of Richmond’s Ships to Shore festival and the accompanying

Steveston Salmon Festival celebrations, agreed to tow the Mallory Todd side-by-side, and alerted the Coast Guard it was doing so. “A few minutes after passing the S6 buoy in the Fraser River channel, a pilot boat approached from starboard, travelling at about 10-12 knots,” Burnett wrote in an e-mail to The Richmond Review. “It could not have avoided seeing the two boats lashed together. Nevertheless, it cut sharply across their bows. The wake forced a huge influx of

water into the very narrow space between the boats. The buoys were flung upwards so that the Chieftain unavoidably hit the deck railings and side of the smaller Mallory Todd. It tore off part of the railing and wooden edges of the Mallory Todd’s portside deck and damaged the wire railing as well." Rory MacLysaght, who is one of the captains of the Mallory Todd, but wasn’t piloting the vessel at the time of the incident, said there was no actual collision between the vessels. “At one point a Pilot

vessel...overtook us very close at high speed, then cut closely in front of us, causing a very large wake. Visibility was clear and it would have been apparent to any professional mariner what the situation was. A prudent captain would have realized that such a wake would cause us problems, and would have slowed down and given us plenty of space when passing. This is both a professional courtesy, as well as a legal requirement to be responsible for your own wake and its effect on other vessels. Several passengers witnessed the maneuver and confirmed that the pilot vessel was too close and operating too fast," MacLysaght wrote in an e-mail Tuesday. “What happened was that the extremely large wake caused the two vessels to move rapidly up and down independently. Since they were tied securely together, this caused a large fender to ride right up onto the aft wooden rail of Mallory Todd, cracking it in a number of places. It also ripped out and bent some of our steel stanchions, and cracked a 15 foot section of our teak toerails, as well as damaging the attachment points in our deck.” Brian Young, director of Marine Operations for the Pacific Pilotage Authority, said Tuesday afternoon that no official report about the incident had yet been made to the authority or the Transportation Safety Board, though the incident was brought to the attention of the traffic centre in Victoria, which has oversees the waters off Steveston. Young did speak to the captain of the boat involved in the incident, who said he slowed down, went outside the channel lane, passed them and then went on to his destination. Young said an investigation will be conducted once an official complaint has been made. He said that if vessels require slow traffic around them, they contact the marine traffic centre, which then broadcasts the request, and lets other vessels know their position. Burnett felt the incident could have been avoided. “Personally, I’m embarrassed that Canadians on an official vessel would demonstrate such poor seamanship and would harm a boat that came here to help us celebrate Canada Day.” The captain of the Hawaiian Chieftain could not be reached by press time Tuesday afternoon.

Museum showcases farming history New exhibition runs until fall at Richmond Museum by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reportr A new exhibition at Richmond Museum captures the rich agricultural history of Richmond. The Garden City: Rich-

mond’s Agricultural Legacy covers the city’s farming history from its early days to the modern industry it is today. Artifacts and photos from the museum, City of Richmond Archives and community members all comprise the display. A centrepiece to the display is a Grauer family milk wagon from Frasea Farms Ltd. Visitors to the museum will uncover pioneer

farming history, learn about crop and livestock production and discover more about modern food security concerns. Among the exhibition’s stories involves dairy production. Richmond dairy farms were once a significant industry and supplied Vancouver markets with milk by wagon—without refrigeration. The exhibition runs until Oct. 21.

The museum is located inside Richmond Cultural Centre, 7700 Minoru Gate, and is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free; donations accepted.

nconsiderate. Ignorant. Environment defiler. Whatever you call idlers, they’re everywhere and most of the time unnecessarily causing air and noise pollution. There’s some good in sight, however, as city council has taken a step toward cracking down on offending motorists. New regulations will arm officers with the power to hand out fines of $60 to motorists who allow their vehicle to idle longer than three minutes on public property. But the bylaw changes don’t go far enough. Despite efforts to increase the use of public transportation, it’s still just a shadow of the preferred transportation method: the personal vehicle. With all these drivers on our roads, driveways and parking lots, regulations are needed. And for anyone who’s been caught speeding, doing an illegal U-turn, tailgating, the consequences of disobeying rules of the road are known first-hand. So why do idlers get a break? Idlers have long been allowed to go about their business: turning the key and sitting in their

parked vehicle for countless minutes while leaving the engine running for whatever reason. They’re not only causing pollution, but they’re a nuisance. Idlers park near building entrances, sending wafts of carbon dioxide inside for others to enjoy. Idlers have noisy vehicles—maybe missing a muffler or two—and wake up the neighbours while they’re contemplating life in a vibrating seat. Richmond’s new regulations target just public property: community centre parking lots, city streets and other city facilities. That’s a start. But that’s not where the worst offenders are found. The worst offenders are in driveways, store parking lots and restaurant drive-throughs. Don’t believe the idlers who insist their practice is necessary. Studies have clearly shown that idling for over 10 seconds uses more fuel and produces more emissions that restarting an engine. Idling is also not an effective way to warm up your vehicle, even in cold weather. The city has powers to create regulations aimed at restoring public health or protecting its citizens from nuisance. It’s time it uses them.

C Ferries has begun its summer schedule, ramping up sailings for the vacation season that is crucial to the fleet’s bottom line.

It’s been rough sailing for BC Ferries so far this year. The corporation released its financial results in June, reporting a net loss of $16.5 million, compared to net earnings of $3.8 million the previous year. Last year’s earnings were boosted by the sale of the former corporate headquarters for $9.3 million, prevent-

ing a loss there as well. In the fiscal year that ended March 31, vehicle traffic was down 3.5 per cent and walk-on passengers were down 2.8 per cent. As a result, BC Ferries is forecasting a “small loss” for this year as well. The spring “Coast Saver” sale has just ended. That’s a 37-percent discount offered Fridays through Mondays, May 25 to June 25 on the major runs from the mainland to Victoria and Nanaimo. The discounts allowed a foot passenger to cross for $9.95 and a car and driver for $39.95. I asked BC Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan last week how the sale went. He didn’t have final figures yet, but he allowed that the boost in traffic was “marginal.” It’s the second year that the spring sale has been offered over weekends, when people are more likely to travel. But instead of generating

additional trips, Corrigan said the main effect has been to shift traffic from midweek to weekends. One of the primary reasons for this spring’s poor performance is the lousy weather that kept people at home. Gasoline at $1.40 a litre is another big one. Hotels and other tourism services tell the same story. Here’s another problem: student traffic on the ferries was down by a third this spring, because teachers cancelled field trips as part of their lengthy work-to-rule campaign. The simplistic political debate about ferry service starts and ends with rising fares, with occasional fits of temper over executive salaries, and ignores the other factors. Just cut the fares and increase the taxpayer subsidy, say the NDP and their local echo chambers. Of course, taxpayers are already pitching in

an extra $80 million this year, bringing the subsidy to the ferries close to $200 million. That’s how Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom sweetened the pot as he unveiled new powers for B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee to set service levels as well as regulate fares. Macatee’s task now is to travel the coast and endure the demands of island dwellers who want the rest of us to subsidize their splendid isolation. The proposition for them will boil down to this: You can pay more or you can have fewer sailings. And where the boat is a third full, you will have fewer sailings. This consultation period is an opportunity to ask some hard questions. For instance, does Saltspring Island really need three ferry terminals? And why is there no passengeronly service? Macatee’s term as commissioner started

with a detailed review last year that pointed to some other ways to save serious money. But CEO Corrigan says there are no quick fixes. FortisBC has offered an $11 million incentive for conversion of marine vessels to natural gas, which would give the fleet significant relief from spiraling fuel costs. But a ferry conversion would take six months or more, and another vessel would be needed in the meantime. Another promising suggestion is overhauling the ferry reservation service, making reservations free and charging extra for those who just show up. Corrigan says a computer reservation overhaul is underway, but it will take three years. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press newspapers.

Editor: Re: “Ad blitz heralds new Port Mann Bridge.” Victoria: when you spend $3.3 billion of my (taxpayer) money on a capital project, I expect said project to be newsworthy enough on its own to not need an additional $400,000 on a propaganda campaign. Best fair solution to congestion/pollution issues: charge a set toll based on number of unused passenger seats on every vehicle entering the city! If you want to be by yourself in a 10-passenger van, great, pay nine tolls to poison my air! If you carpool to fill every seat, just pay a token city-entry toll of $1. George Pope Blundell

Potholes too much Editor: The potholes at the Alderbridge/Garden City crossroad have been there for as long as I could remember, and I’m talking about years.

Editor: The Steveston Ships to Shore festival is something we’re all proud of. What a pity that a Canadian pilot boat cast a pall over the day for one of the ships that was here to celebrate Canada Day with us, the Mallory Todd. I was a passenger on the Mallory Todd on a July 1 morning trip, a part of the festival. As we know, the Fraser River is in flood. Because the current was so strong, the Mallory Todd was having difficulty making headway fast enough to get back to dock in time for the rest of the festival. The captain of the Hawaiian Chieftain, which has a much more powerful engine, agreed to tow the Mallory Todd side by side. The Coast Guard was informed that the two boats were sailing in tow. A few minutes after passing the S6 buoy in

the Fraser River channel, a pilot boat approached from starboard, travelling at about 10-12 knots. It could not have avoided seeing the two boats lashed together. Nevertheless, it cut sharply across their bows. The wake forced a huge influx of water into the very narrow space between the boats. The buoys were flung upwards so that the Chieftain unavoidably hit the deck railings and side of the smaller Mallory Todd. It tore off part of the railing and wooden edges of the Mallory Todd’s portside deck and damaged the wire railing as well. Personally, I’m embarrassed that Canadians on an official vessel would demonstrate such poor seamanship and would harm a boat that came here to help us celebrate Canada Day. The three people in the cabin of the pilot boat

who caused the damage need to be held accountable. If not, what were they doing aboard an official boat? If they are in fact pilots, they are a disgrace to their profession. Pilots are supposed to protect ships and our shores, not

cause them damage. They are the people whose responsibility it is to protect us all from, among other things, the risks posed by large tankers travelling up and down our treacherous coastline. We must be able to rely on their competence and maturity. Angela Burnett Richmond

Ex-Sockeye Garrison lands with Canucks by Don Fennell Sports Editor The newest Vancouver Canuck is a former Richmond Sockeye. Jason Garrison, who signed a $27.6-million, sixyear free agent contract with the Canucks July 1, was part of a dynamic young Sockeyes team during the

2002-03 Pacific International Junior Hockey League season that also featured future NHLers Karl Alzner, Raymond Sawada and Kenndal McArdle. While Alzner and McArdle were among six 15-yearolds, Garrison was 18 and a late bloomer who in mid-season was moved back to the blueline from left wing. See Page 18

Seniors overcome social isolation with food The Richmond Food Bank is committed to combating seniors’ social isolation with programs to help overcome barriers and bring people together. In addition to onsite food distribution, where all clients receive nutritious food and connect with community social service agencies, the Richmond Food Bank offers a limited grocery delivery service where volunteers provide a bag of groceries and a warm smile to those who are physically unable to leave their homes. The Richmond Food Bank also addresses social isolation with its Ageless Volunteerism program, where seniors and students engage in purposeful volunteer work in a supported environment. This program will soon be expanded to include a Cooking Club, where seniors and others at risk for social isolation will prepare lunches for themselves and food bank volunteers. “Nothing brings people together better than lunch, and our new Cooking Club will help seniors and other people overcome the social isolation that so often accompanies aging,” says Keith Yee, Richmond Food Bank volunteer coordinator. “Our volunteers always say that the Richmond Food Bank is a great place to make friends, and we hope to open up that opportunity to socially-isolated seniors in our community.” The Richmond Food Bank offers grocery distribution Tuesdays from 1 to 2 p.m. at Peace Mennonite Church, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 am to 1 pm, and Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m. at 5800 Cedarbridge Way. Ageless Volunteerism is offered on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm. The Cooking Club will be launching soon on Tuesdays and Fridays. For more information on how you can help our neighbours in need, contact the Richmond Food Bank.

A GOOD REASON TO LEARN ABOUT YOUR MEDICATION! (Based on a likely scenario) Jane is an independent older adult taking medications for a heart condition. When she began to have shortness off breath and dizzy spells while walking/standing she met with her family doctor, who changed her medications. Jane did not question the medication change and did not want to ¿ll the prescription as she thought she had the da same medication at home already. As days went by, her condition became worse leading to a fall in her home and potentially life threatening situation. It was found that Jane did not ¿ll the prescription given to her as she was not aware the doses were different.

Sockeyes switched him from forward to defenceman From Page 13 “I remember it clearly,” Ron Johnson, coach of the 2002-03 Sockeyes, told The Richmond Review on Tuesday. Midway through the season, captain Rob Dolter was traded to the Delta Ice Hawks for forward David Young, leaving a void on the defence. But before the trade was finalized, Johnson went to Garrison and encouraged him to make the change from forward to defence. “I think you’re a better defenceman than winger and if you’re going to make it (to the pros) it’s going to be as a d-man,” Johnson told him. “We’ll be better (as a team) if you play D and I’ll give you lots of ice time.”

“He was smart kid and had a good shot,” Johnson said. “And he was calm with the puck and made good decisions. On defence he settled everything down and showed a natural aptitude when we put him back on the point. I’m glad he believed in (the change) and good for him (signing with the Canucks). He always wanted to play for a pro team in his backyard.” A native of White Rock, Garrison’s strong character was present even as a Sockeye and helped lift the team from a fifth-place finish during the regular season to the Tom Shaw PIJHL playoff title (a seven-game final series win over Abbotsford Pilots), the Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial Junior B championship and

a third-place finish at the Western Canadians in which he was selected the top defenceman. Garrison went on to play for the Nanaimo Clippers of the B.C. Hockey League the following two seasons (scoring 22 goals and 62 points in 57 games in 2004-05) before attending the University of Minnesota Duluth for three seasons, capped by a 14-point (in 26 games) season in 2007-08. He turned pro in 200809, signing a two-year entry level contract with the Florida Panthers. He played all but one game with the Panthers’ farm team in Rochester scoring 35 points in 75 games. He split the next season between Florida and Rochester, earning eight points in 39 games with the Pan-

thers. He improved to 18 points in 73 games with the Panthers in 2010-11 and last season broke out for 16 goals and 33 points in 77 games, adding a goal and two assists in the Panthers’ four playoff games. Despite being six-foot-two and 220 pounds, Garrison isn’t overly aggressive but is known for his strong positional play. And because he’s always been eager to improve, Johnson believes the best is yet to come. “I think he’s going to become even more,” Johnson said. “He has that natural talent and good poise, and while there are things he needs to work on like anyone he has that advantage of playing forward that enables him to see things some-

times that others don’t.” In a 2010 interview with The Review, Garrison said playing some forward has helped him become a better transitional player, which he tries to demonstrate by rushing the puck up the ice. But while this weekend’s deal with the Canucks suggests he’s made it as a pro player, another of Garrison’s previous comments speaks to his ongoing commitment to get better. “There are a lot of good defencemen in the league and they all kind of bring different things to the table,” he said. “One of the biggest things is learning from your experience and not taking anything for granted. I’m still learning the game.”

Sports Editor A three-run homer in the first inning by David Van Ostrand powered the host Richmond Athletics to a men’s baseball tournament title Sunday at Latrace Field. Sitting on a curve ball, Van Ostrand belted a shot deep over the right field fence in a 4-2 championship-game victory over Newton. The A’s also got stellar pitching from Matt Winograd who had five strikeouts and scattered three hits before leaving the game in the sixth inning. “Overall, it was a good first tournament,” said A’s player-coach Ryan Klenman. “We were happy with eight teams for the inaugural event and considering the weather, we had no rainouts.” Van Ostrand also won the home run derby on Saturday night. The A’s were undefeated in four games, winning the first two by identical 10-1 counts over Vancouver and Burnaby and then secured a 1-0 victory over Port Coquitlam by scoring the game’s only run on a lead-off base hit by Mike Basford that scored Charles Shapiro in the bottom of the seventh inning. The A’s are also enjoying a pretty solid season in the Lower Mainland Baseball Association, sitting at 7-2 and just a game out of top spot in the 18-and over Bob Bunnet Division.

The annual Canada Day celebration featured everything from a parade and pancake breakfast in the morning to live performances and carnival activities in the afternoon. “This is probably my favourite day of the year,” said Janice Froese, the executive director of the Steveston Community Society. The parade, which had just over 100 floats, was a highlight of the day. “It was a great parade,” said Froese. “There were a lot of diverse community groups,” she said. Steveston was busier than usual during the festival this year as Ships to Shore was happening at the same time. “It was an added benefit,” said Tracy Paldy, the co-chair of the Salmon Festival. “There is more chance for community involvement [this year] with the Ships to Shore,” she said. Due to the timing of the events, the Salmon Festival decided to expand and have part of their festivities, including their carnival rides, open for two days instead of just one. Any surplus money from the festival, which traditionally goes to a community-oriented project, will go towards an educational garden this year.
