RICHMOND REVEALED: Richmond and the Summer Olympics. Our special Olympic edition looks at who’s going to the Olympics, who’s been and who could be there in 2016
For the love of the Games Darcy Marquardt and Richard Hortness met at the 2008 Games, and now engaged, hope to bring home medals from London 2012 by Don Fennell Sports Editor This is an Olympic love story that began at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing and is due to be blessed by marriage Aug. 24, 2013. It was the second week of the Games, after both Richmond’s Darcy Marquardt and Richard Hortness of Medicine Hat were done competing in their respective sports—rowing and swimming—that the couple met on an athlete bus going to the diving ﬁnals. They were doing what was natural for Canadian athletes, introducing themselves to others wearing the red and white. But then destiny stepped in, and they again met up later that night, exchanged phone numbers, and kept in touch for the remainder of the Games—even hanging out together at the closing ceremonies. “Something struck me about him in those initial meetings,” Marquardt, 33, says. “He was genuine, kind and attractive. We stayed in touch regularly after we both came home to Canada and even with him going off to school to ﬁnish his last year at University of Nevada-Las Vegas, it was an easy ﬂight to visit him. And so began our long-distance relation-
ship.” Injects Hortness, 27: “I scored big. I am really lucky to have bumped into her four years ago, not once but twice in the same day. I’m also lucky that my buddy Joe Bartoch who I was with was so distracted that I was able to talk her (all night). “ After 18 months piling up air miles ﬂying to various cities to visit each other, they both moved to London, Ont. in March 2010 to train in their respective sports. The fact they were living in the same city was a bonus, says Marquardt. “He’d said early on that London was an option for him and it was my only choice since the women’s national rowing team is based there. And as our bond grew, we were able to spend even more time together.” But while love bloomed, the couple was also forced to spend considerable time apart pursuing their individual athletic goals—namely qualifying for this summer’s Olympic Games in London, England which begin today. “Sometimes it’s felt like we were passing ships and often only had a few days together before one or the other had to leave for a training camp or competition,” Marquardt says. “But when home, we both got to

have lunch and dinner together since our resting periods were about the same in the middle of the day.” When they weren’t exhausted, they also tried to go on regular dates. “I felt really spoiled sometimes because Richard often would get home before me and do some meal prep beforehand so when I get home we could eat right away,” she continues. “I take my turn with the cooking too, but he’s very creative in the kitchen.” The 2012 Olympics will be Marquardt’s third. She teamed with Buffy
Williams to place fourth in the women’s pairs event at the 2004 Summer Games, a result she repeated as a member of the Canadian women’s eight crew at the 2008 Games in Beijing. She’ll also be rowing with the eights this year in London with an eye to getting that elusive medal. The London Olympics will be Hortness’ second Games. A member of the Canadian men’s four-by-100-metre freestyle relay team, he placed 27th in the 50-metre freestyle in Beijing.
“My goal is to go as fast as possible in the relay,” he says. “I think that’s as it would have always been, but the road to these Games would have been different and very possibly I would not have made them at all if I hadn’t been with Darcy. My time in London (Ont.) has been greatly affected by Darcy and my health and mental wellness during training greatly impacted in a positive manner by having her in my life. See Page 13

RICHMOND REVEALED: Richmond and the Summer Olympics
For the Bhullar family, wrestling matters Arjan aims to fulfill father-and-son Olympic dream by Don Fennell Sports Editor Arjan Bhullar is, quite literally, following in his dad’s footsteps. Avtar was a national-level wrestler who attained much success in both India and Canada, and was close to making the Olympic Games. Some 30 years later, Avtar’s son is carrying the proverbial family torch as a member of Canada’s team at the 2012 Olympic Summer Games which begin today in London, England. Wearing the maple leaf on the biggest athletic stage in the world is a dream come true for the younger Bhullar, one that began before he was even born; Avtar dreamed that one day his son would reach the pinnacle of his sport. “I think (a gold medal) is well within my reach,” said Bhullar, 26, who will be competing in the men’s 120-kilogram freestyle event at the Olympics. “I have been successful at every other level and there is this deep down belief that this will be my year.” The Richmond Review’s Sportsperson of the Year in 2010, Bhullar gained international recognition that year by winning the gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in New Dehli and instantly became a local hero after pinning India’s own Joginder Kumar in the ﬁnal match.
Everywhere he went he was treated like royalty—adoring children lined up to get his autograph and admiring adults clamored to get their photo taken with him. He likened it to playing for the Vancouver Canucks. “I had goosebumps,” he said. Though he’s enjoyed much success on the wrestling mat on his way to becoming a ﬁve-time Canadian champion—the latest at the Olympic qualiﬁcation trials last December in Winnipeg when he defeated Sunny Dhinsa 2-1 in the best-of-three matches ﬁnal—the path hasn’t always been paved with gold. After winning the under-21 PanAmerican championship and placing ﬁfth at the worlds, he endured the most difﬁcult year of his career in 2007. Torn knee ligaments put him on the sidelines for close to six months and while recovering he was diagnosed with a rare bacterial infection. That required six months of medication. Ever-determined, Bhullar rebounded to make the Canadian junior team for a third consecutive year and began the arduous climb back to the top of his game. Narrowly missing out on the 2008 Beijing Olympics could have spelled another setback, but Bhullar dedicated himself to training even harder in pursuit of his Olympic dream. Not even a series of nagging injuries at the nationals could keep him down, and his ticket to London was conﬁrmed in March when he won the Pan-American Olympic qualifying tournament in Kissimmee, Fla. A ﬁve-time Canadian champion, Bhullar was an outstanding all-

around athlete as a child also excelling in basketball, but wrestling soon became a focal point. By 2003, when he was only 16, he burst onto the national stage by placing third at the Canadian junior championships in Fredericton, N.B. At that point his former high school wrestling coach Joe Clemente correctly predicted a bright future for his protege. “I have every conﬁdence in his ability to make it big,” Clemente said at the time. “He has shown the kind of dedication necessary to succeed and to even make the Olympic
team. The thing I like most about Arjan is that he has a clear vision of where he wants to go.” Clemente says today his prediction of success for Bhullar was a “no-brainer.” “He was just one of those kids, I recognized it when I ﬁrst met him,” he said. “I recall when he was a ﬁfth grader competing at War on the Floor at SFU against ninth graders, It was obvious then he had some special ability.” Added Clemente: “He was also very disciplined as a student. I taught him French Immersion social
studies and he was always very prioritized. What’s great about him as an athlete is he’s a very evenkeeled kind of guys and genuine human being. I have every expectation he should achieve something very special (at these Olympics). It’s really exciting.” •The men’s 120-kilogram freestyle wrestling competition is scheduled for Aug. 11. Qualiﬁcations are at 5 a.m. Paciﬁc time, followed by the round of eight at 5:30 a.m., quarterﬁnals at 6:30 a.m., semiﬁnals at 7 a.m., bronze ﬁnals at 9:45 a.m., and gold medal ﬁnal at 10:25 a.m.
Andre Ho remembers to have fun on the world stage Table tennis player finds his focus by Don Fennell Sports Editor At the tender age of 20, Andre Ho is a ﬁrsttime member of Canada’s table tennis team at the 2012 Summer Games in London. But the young Richmondite’s perspective prior to his Olympic debut speaks of someone much older and wiser. “I know I’ll be playing against the best players in the world, but I have to just focus on each point,” he says. “My focus will be reminding myself it’s really just like any other match and to have fun—when you can tell yourself to relax and have fun things come easier. I think that’s important for me.” The ﬁfth-ranked men’s singles player in Canada, Ho qualiﬁed for the Olympics in April by edging fellow Canadian teammate PierreLuc Hinse in a ﬁve-game ﬁnal at the ﬁrst North American qualiﬁer in Cary, N.C. He said at the time he didn’t really know how to feel, adding the chance to compete at the Games “has been a goal of mine that I’ve been working on for many years.” Ho began playing table tennis recreationally with his dad Simpson, but his game really took

off when his parents (his mom Amelia is the president of the B.C. Table Tennis Association) opened the Bridgeport Sports Club in 1998. The following year, he entered the national championships in Edmonton and won four gold medals at the under-10 age group. However it’s only been in the last couple of years that he’s been able to develop the consistently
high standard of play that has enabled him to become one of Canada’s elite. “While I don’t have one particular player I look up to, I really admire any of the top athletes in the world because I realize how much effort they have to put in to perform that well and to continue to perform at that level,” he says. “Guys like Sidney Crosby deserve to be the highest-paid players or Olympic gold medallist because they really put the work in.” Ho says he’s constantly evolving as an athlete, competing in a sport where lessons are as frequent as the matches themselves. He says if a loss can teach him more than a win, he’ll take it every time. “It’s moments like that that can help you mature as a person and that goes along with my game,” he says. While China is the dominant nation in table tennis, the sport is still in its infancy in Canada. That’s apparent just from a training perspective says Ho, who had the opportunity to train brieﬂy in China a couple of years ago. “They’re used to high intensity and very competitive table tennis and their fundamentals are very good,” he says. “Growing up in Canada I didn’t practice the basic skills like they do and in the last few years I’ve put a lot of effort into making up this lost time. It’s been hard. While making the Olympics is a tremendous achievement, people don’t realize how hard I’ve worked to make up the
gap that was there and I still have to be more consistent. Sometimes it’s a matter of luck, but I need to practice to the point where my shots are so precise I can close my eyes and know for sure I can make a shot—even in the most intense moment.” Though he’s the by far the best table tennis player, Ho isn’t the only accomplished athlete in his family. His two older sisters, Susanna and Melissa, are talented snowboarders and triathletes. Melissa won a gold medal competing in a triathlon just two weeks ago. But as talented as her children are athletically, Amelia Ho is perhaps more proud of who they are. “I’ve always believed that part of learning is to always contribute,” Amelia says. “Andre saw his older sisters do that and I think that inspired him to also volunteer.” •The table tennis competition at the Olympic Summer Games in London is scheduled to begin this weekend, with the men’s singles preliminary round Saturday (July 28) at 1:45 a.m. Paciﬁc Time, followed by the ﬁrst round at 4 a.m. The second round goes Sunday (July 29) at 3 a.m., with the third and fourth rounds at 2 a.m. and 11 a.m. Monday (July 30). The quarterﬁnals are July 31 and Aug. 1, with the semiﬁnals and ﬁnal Aug. 2 at 2 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Ho will also participate in the team competition, which gets underway Aug. 3. The quarter-ﬁnals are Aug. 5 at 2 a.m. Paciﬁc Time, followed by the semiﬁnals at 6:30 a.m. Aug. 6 and the ﬁnal at 3

Moss’ hard work and patience culminated at the Canadian championships in Calgary on June 29, when he qualiﬁed for the Olympics with a throw of 77.83 metres. Moss comes by his athleticism naturally. His dad, Leroy, enjoyed an extensive pro football career that includes playing for the Cincinnati Bengals of the NFL and Edmonton Eskimos and B.C. Lions in the CFL. His parents remain his greatest role models. Moss also doesn’t have to look far for additional support.

Moss is the 39th Kajak to represent the club at the Olympics, beginning with Anne Covell (nee Cliff ) in Mexico City in 1968. While she didn’t win a medal, she did establish a new Canadian record in the women’s 400 metres. Other notable Kajaks to reach the Olympics include five-time Olympian Charmaine Crooks who was a silver medallist in the women’s 4x400metre relay at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles. In 1996 she had the honour of being Canada’s flag bearer in the opening ceremonies of the Atlanta Olympics. The 1980s was a particularly interesting period in the Kajaks’ history, culminating in 1988 when seven of the club’s athletes competed at the Seoul Olympics. Middle distance runner Simon Hoogewerf was among them.

Sprinter Harry Jerome among long list of locals who hit world athletic stage by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Richmond has a proud Summer Olympic history, with a couple of household names having called Lulu Island home during their athletic heydays, according to sometime historian and long-time councillor Bill McNulty. Off the top of his head, he came up with more than a dozen names, and agreed to share with The Richmond Review the fruits of his years of research on the eve of the opening of the 2012 London Summer Games. Richmondâ€™s ďŹ rst Olympian has a family name many locals would recognize. Elbert Del Grauer, former head of B.C. Electric and whose brother Rudy was a Richmond reeve and now has an elementary school named after him, was an Olympian in 1928 as a member of the Canadian Lacrosse team. In that era, Richmond carved a name for itself in the sport
of lacrosse, and won the B.C. Championship in 1935. In 1948, Rhonda Martin, a three-time Canadian fencing champion who ran a kennel at No. 5 Road and Bridgeport, represented the Maple Leaf. Don Arnold began Richmondâ€™s proud history in rowing, as part of the gold-medal winning menâ€™s eights rowing team in 1956. He was joined by fellow Richmond resident William Thomas, a member of the yachting team. Arguably the highest proďŹ le Richmond Olympian was sprinting specialist Harry Jerome, who taught at Richmond High in the mid 1960s and both coached and trained with the Richmond Kajaks. He was an Olympian in 1964. Alan Sakai, principal at Hamilton elementary school, represented Canada in judo in 1972, and was joined by Ian Gordon, on the menâ€™s eights rowing team, Lance Carey in ďŹ eld hockey, and Keith Adams, in weightlifting. In 1976, Marjorie Bailey moved to Richmond from Nova Scotia to train as she prepared to participate in the 100 and 200 metres. She was joined by fellow local Beverly Barnes, a basketball player. 1984 saw four locals partipate in the Los Angeles Summer Games: Randy Samuel, a member of the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer team who was raised in Richmond; Debbie Brill, a high jumper; diver Kathy Kelemen and menâ€™s ďŹ eld hockey member Bruce McPherson. Canadian menâ€™s Olympic ďŹ eld
hockey team player Chris Gifford was the lone Richmond representative at the 1988 games. Sprinter Camille Noel, who won an Ethel Tibbits Award during its inaugural year in 1994, represented Canada at the 1992 Games, and was joined by swimmer Kevin Drayinger (200 metre backstroke), and menâ€™s volleyball teammates Cris Frehlick and Brad Willock. In both 2000 and 2004, Kristy Odamura represented Canada in softball, as did swimmer Brian Johns. Johns ďŹ nished seventh in the 400-metre individual medley in the 2008 Beijing Games. Jodi-Ann Robinson was on Canadaâ€™s womenâ€™s soccer team in 2008, and was joined by gold medal winning menâ€™sâ€™ eights rower Kyle Hamilton, and fellow locals Samantha Taylor (equestrian), and Jimmy Van Ostrand (baseball). And joining this list are members of the 2012 Canadian Olympic team: Arjan Bhullar, Andre Ho and Darcy Marquardt (who was also a member of the 2004 and 2008 teams in rowing). There are many other Olympians with Richmond connections, such as through the Richmond Kajaks, and though they didnâ€™t live in Richmond at the time of their Olympic glory, trained here. Still other Olympians have moved to Richmond after their athletic careers ended. McNulty is continuing to research other members of the Canadian Olympic teams past and their local connections, such as the national menâ€™s lacrosse teams and others.

EDITORIAL: Sun about to shine on Olympics The sixth Olympic ring is schadenfreude. In the days leading up to the opening ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Games in London, the international media have been gleefully chronicling the myriad of gaffes and shortcomings that have organizers scrambling and issuing statements of reassurance that all will be well.
First it was the weather, cold and rainy then suddenly so hot power lines for a new rail service to the Olympic stadium are melting, resulting in delays and shutdowns. Ah yes, transportation, the eternal Achilles heel of every modern Olympics; if it’s not cabbies protesting on the Tower Bridge, it’s everyday commuters fretting through
gridlock to allow Olympic officials free passage along exclusive traffic lanes. There are worries about security, as the private company contracted to make the Games safe underestimated the magnitude of the job, necessitating the deployment of the military. Customs agents are threatening to strike. And nobody is sure
how much it will all cost in the end. Sound familiar? Two years ago we were sweating many of those very same issues in the days preceding Vancouver’s Winter Olympics. And no one was more vocal in their criticism than the British media; one paper even girded their readers for “the worst Games ever.”
But all of the problems were forgotten as soon as Wayne Gretzky lit the Olympic cauldron at Jack Poole Plaza. Just as they will be when the torch is set ablaze in London. And then we’ll all settle in for two weeks of dazzling athletic competition, compelling human interest stories and national pride. —Burnaby NewsLeader

Martin van den Hemel photo Lee Arenberg (Grumpy) and Lana Parrilla (The Evil Queen) pose for a photo on the set of Once Upon a Time.
Hats off to Evil Queen and Grumpy
News Views Martin van den Hemel
t’s great when Hollywood actors come north of the border and demonstrate that they understand that Canadians do things differently.
So it was Wednesday afternoon in Steveston, while I fumbled with the company’s Nikon D300 camera, hoping to salvage something printable as I photographed the ﬁlming of the ABC TV fantasy, Once Upon a Time. It was a fantastic visual: Steveston turns war zone. Imagine H.G Wells’ War of the Worlds meets ﬁshing village, complete with a crackling mound of asphalt in the middle of Moncton Street, like some alien craft had forced its way to the surface. As I photographed the faux carnage, I spied two familiar faces. I spotted Lee Arenberg’s distinctive Grumpy face ﬁrst,
in the distance, and then moved in for a closer look to see the stunning Lana Parrilla, who certainly wasn’t looking evil on this warm, sunny afternoon. Strangely, as I zoomed in with the company’s 200mm lens, seeking to keep my distance, every time I lined up my shot, a dude wearing cheap sunglasses and a baseball cap, kept getting in my way. As I moved to the side, he slid over just enough to disrupt the photo. Though I didn’t realize it until after viewing the images hours later, Lana Parrilla was watching as this photographer and the overeager security guard shadow boxed.
Parrilla obviously saw that I wasn’t invading her space, wasn’t being rude, wasn’t voicing my annoyance. In other words, I was being Canadian. And what she did next was classic. She took a minute out of her shooting day, got Lee Arenberg’s attention, wrapped her arm around his shoulder, and waltzed over toward me, and proceeded to pose. I was stunned, my ﬁngers fumbling with my long lens and camera controls, feeling the pressure building, not wanting to screw up this rare shot. Click, click, click, and it was over, and I thanked them profusely. And I was
on my way. Moments later, as I search for other shooting angles, Sister Guadalupe from St. Paul’s Parish strolled by, and I greeted her. She asked what all the activity was about, and I told her about the show, and how my kids love it, and it’s a family show, and that it brings great economic beneﬁts to the city, its residents and businesses. “Well, then I’ll pray for the show,” she said, with a smile. I’m sure the actors won’t need divine intervention to keep this great show going. But it never hurts getting a little “magical” help from the Big Guy upstairs.

letters City should add â€˜Fin Free Feastingâ€™ page
Stop depleting endangered species
Editor: The City of Richmond must take immediate action on the shark fin issue by starting a page on its website that lists restaurants that do not serve shark fin soup. Restaurateurs could submit copies of their menus, the city could post a list of those restaurants and we, the consumers, could vote with our business. This could begin next week, whereas a ban will take months to pass and longer to actually begin to enforceâ€”if council ever decides to create such a bylaw. As Dr. Mathias suggested (â€œHaving shark fins on your menu will affect your bottom line,â€? Letters), we must vote with our business. The City of Richmond can facilitate our decision making process by adding the â€œFin Free Feastingâ€? page to its site. Alexa Loo Richmond
Editor: I would like to share a different perspective on this problem of consuming an endangered species. In the 1970s, I lived in Mexico and it was a tradition to hunt and consume sea turtle. I lived off the land and considered it a necessity and almost a daily diet. The 1980s came along and the military stopped the consumption due to awareness. The same thing happened as little as ďŹ ve years ago with the iguanas, which are considered an aphrodisiac. Tradition is one thing, but Iâ€™m not eating delicious turtle soup or iguana soup any more in Mexico because weâ€™re depleting the species. Now some might think who would eat such things, but they are as good as any dish when prepared properly. Yes I do miss the delicacy, but we all should learn to just bend a little and change a small eating habit like I did. Scott Street Former Richmondite

Editor: Animal activists have hundreds of reasons to ban shark ďŹ n, but businessmen have hundreds of reasons to sell shark ďŹ n too. As citizens of Richmond, we have our own choice for shark ďŹ n soup or notâ€”a banning shark ďŹ n bylaw would be unfair and unnecessary. Some species of shark are listed as endangered animals; also there are other 256 endangered animals in Canada. Why not ban the consumption of all endangered animals, or at least only the endangered species of shark? Sharks contain high levels of mercury. More than 30 other ďŹ sh and shellďŹ sh contain low levels of mercury are recommended not to eat over 12 oz. a week. Do we need to ban all of them? Why only ban shark ďŹ n? Killing shark is not the only inhumane practiceâ€” why not ban killing animals as food, ban foie gras, ban hunting of seals, ban killing whales, ban greyhound racing and ban animal ďŹ ghting? Someone mentioned if Richmond city council is going to ban things that are allowed by the federal governmentâ€”pesticides, genetically modiďŹ ed food, and now sharkâ€™s ďŹ nâ€”why not focus on something thatâ€™s agreed by all to be harmful (e.g. ban tobacco sale, ban marijuana, and ban alcohol)? Why do we need an unfair and unnecessary bylaw in Richmond? As reported by the newspapers, the save shark education is very efďŹ cientâ€”less restaurants are selling shark ďŹ n soup now. City council, please donâ€™t waste our money and time. Richmond still has lots of things to do, e.g. school improvement, police reform, affordable housing, local farming, new immigrant settlement, trafďŹ c and road safety. Daniel Leung Richmond

Richmond Review Âˇ Page 9
Emergency Medical Services officer-in-charge says thanks and bids farewell to Richmond Editor: My wife and I came to Richmond in 1997 and we have loved living in the Steveston/Westwind community since then. We have had the privilege of serving the community in various public safety capacities. Over the years I have had the honour of working in Richmond as a paramedic, chief, and for the last several years as the ofďŹ cer in charge of the South Fraser District which included Richmond/YVR. After 24 years of Emergency Medical Services in B.C. I ďŹ nd myself moving onto another adventure. I have accepted a position on the other coast in New Brunswick with their provincial EMS service. While the decision to leave my position here was not a planned move, I am very excited about my new opportunities. The decision to leave Richmond was not an easy one for us. My wife and I have raised our three children and we have many close friends and family in this great community. We have several amazing memories of our time in Richmond and will forever remember our time here. Over the years I have been proud to be a part of the many legacy achievements that have started in Richmond. When I think back, I have worked on many ďŹ rsts that have started here; such as ďŹ rst responder interoperability projects including the Combined Events Radio Project (a voice interoperability project which has now spread across B.C. and Canada), the Richmond Chamber of Commerce 911 Awards (still the only event of its kind in Canada), the Rejviz Rally (an EMS competition which originally started as a team of RFR ďŹ reďŹ ghters and BCAS paramedics), Safe Community Alliance (the ďŹ rst community in BC), and Kidsake. None of these projects would have started had it not been for the amazing relationships we have amongst the responder agencies and the community. During my tenure I have also had the privilege to be involved in a number of fantastic community events including the Tall Ships, Winterfest, Remembrance Day, 2010 Winter Olympics, the Salmon Festival, and the Canada Day Parade. Unfortunately I have also had many tragic events to remember such as the murder of Const. Jimmy Ng, the Cap Rouge ďŹ sh boat tragedy, the Richmond Inn ďŹ re, and the Saba Road and recent Russ Baker Road aircraft crashes. Those lives lost will forever have a place in my heart. What I am most proud of are those incredible responders in this city. Richmond has, by far, the best police, ďŹ re, coast guard, military, and paramedic members! I have presented internationally on responder interoperability and I often brag about â€œhow good we have it here.â€? All of our events have been jointly responded to by these amazing men and women in uniform. Regardless of the outcomes of the various calls for service, all of our responders have served with the utmost professionalism and honour. The list is long for those that I must thank, and I know that I will miss someone and for that I apologize. Many thanks to Linda Reid, Rob Howard, John Yap, Mayor Brodie (not to mention Christine Brodie) and our council for their political support and guidance. Many thanks to Chief John McGowan, Deputy Chiefâ€™s Jim Wishlove, Tim Wilkinson, and Kim Howell, along with all of the members of Richmond Fire Rescue, Superintendent Renny Nesset and the members of the Richmond RCMP, Captain Brian Wooton and the Coast Guard staff at Sea Island, and all of the incredible Reservists at the 12th Service Battalion for your dedication and service to this community. Thank you to the many city staff that help to keep Richmond a beautiful and safe including Dave Semple and his staff at Public works as well as Deborah Procter, Amy Romanas, and their dedicated Emergency Management staff and volunteers. Thank you to David Guscott, Michael Webb, Doug Watson, Peter Gauthier, Dave Mitchell, and all of the staff at ECOMM 911. To Craig Jones, Carol Young, and the rest of the staff at the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, thank you for your support and friendship. Thank you to my friends in the local media including BhreandĂĄin Cluston, Martin van den Hemel, and all of the staff at the Richmond Review. And of course a huge thank you to my friends and colleagues with the B.C. Ambulance Service here in Richmond. It has been an honour and pleasure to serve with each and every one of you. Also, thank you to my three amazing children who have had to share their dad with this community. As
well as a huge thank you to my parents who came and made Richmond their home. My family is what gives me all of my strength and for that I am truly thankful. I would be remiss if I did not thank my amazing wife and my best friend, Cpl. Dustine Rodier, for her love and support. She has put up with many a middle-ofthe-night telephone calls and my leaving the family all of the sudden for incidents. She has supported me even on those many â€œdays offâ€? when I was busy at some event in the community. She has stood by me in the worse of times as well as the best...and for that I thank her immensely. I am also very proud of her incredible accomplishments as a police ofďŹ cer in this community. Our times here have been incredible and we will miss everything about this amazing community. Richmond will forever be in our hearts, thoughts, and memories. Thank you all. Pascal Rodier Richmond

RICHMOND REVEALED: Richmond and the Summer Olympics
Future Olympians? Some athletes to watch for 2016 by Don Fennell Sports Editor Richmond’s bestknown Olympic athlete retired from competitive swimming in April, passing up the possibility of representing Canada in a fourth Summer Games in London. Had Brian Johns, 29, qualiﬁed, it would have been the most Games ever attended by a Canadian swimmer. “For me, it was a relatively easy decision to retire,” Johns said at the time. “It was becoming apparent I wasn’t going to be able to come back from the knee injury and swim at the level I expected or needed to. I was trying pretty hard through January to train through the pain, but was limited in what I was able to do in the pool. I’d have some really big ups and downs.” Johns, who ﬁrst made the Olympic team at the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney and also represented Canada at the 2004 Games in Athens and the 2008 Games in Beijing, was inspired to become an Olympian watching Mark Tewskbury win the Olympic gold medal in 1992. Tewksbury is the current chef de mission for Canada at the 2012 London Games. No doubt, Johns has or will inspire future Olympians himself.
Countless young Richmond athletes are currently honing their skills, many with Olympic aspirations of their own. While certainly incomplete, following is a list of locals poised to represent Canada at the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Caleb Clarke, soccer After signing his ﬁrst pro contract with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC earlier this year, the Major League Soccer squad loaned the talented 19-year-old striker to FC Rot-Weiss Erfurt of Germany last month. Clarke ﬁnished the 2012 United Soccer Development Academy regular season as the second highest scorer in the league with 24 goals in 23 matches in the 78-team league. Summer Clarke, soccer An integral member of the Richmond Red Hot Selects during their
back-to-back (2011 and 2012) under-17 girls’ Provincial A Cup soccer championships, Clarke, 17, also suited up for Canada’s under-17 team at the recent CONCACAF World Cup qualifying tournament in Guatemala where she displayed her quick pace and scoring ability netting six goals to help Canada take ﬁrst place. She’ll rejoin the team in September for the FIFA under-17 World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.
Evan Dunfee, race walking Having come up just shy of making the qualifying standard for the 2012 London Olympics, Dunfee, 21, seems more determined that ever to make the Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. He recently won the men’s 10-kilometre race walk at the Canadian championships and the North American, Central American and Caribbean under-23 championships in Mexico two weeks ago. Bea Francisco, ﬁeld hockey Currently tending goal for the University of B.C. Thunderbirds women’s ﬁeld hockey team, Francisco, 20, earned her ﬁrst international cap in 2010 playing for Field Hockey Canada’s senior women’s team at home against Chile.

Are Distracted Driving Laws Backﬁring? Unofﬁcially, ﬂagrant It should be safe to say disregard is everywhere. On that nearly everyone agrees: the freeway, there are days distracted drivers put when you may seem to be themselves, their passengers the only driver not talking and their fellow road users at on a hand-held cell phone. risk. And clearly, the causes Regular reminders of the of driver distraction are numerous studies showing endless. So endless, that for the hand-held, hands-free many years the laws against distinction to be without a what we now call distracted Cedric Hughes Barrister & Solicitor difference are also troubling. driving were cast broadly www.roadrules.ca The latest and greatest in-car against ‘without due care’ after-market entertainment and ‘dangerous’ driving and devices are ever tempting. generally enforced in cases where the risk had And now the Frontier Centre for Public Policy materialized. (http://www.fcpp.org/publication.php/4258) Then along came the cell phone, which, is reporting a controversial view that, far from as it grew smaller and smarter, became more making us safer on the roads, “statistics and ubiquitous and, alas, an increasingly recognized common sense show that these laws make the factor worldwide in both fatal and non-fatal roads more dangerous.” In 2011, Manitoba’s ﬁrst crashes, often involving younger drivers. ‘There full year under the legislation, crashes not only oughta’ be a law’ rumblings lead to a new increased above the 2009 level but also reached sub-set of careless/dangerous driving laws the highest level of the previous six years, which speciﬁcally proscribing against cell phone usage had otherwise been trending downwards.

Anmol Mattu, basketball Seemingly always ahead of the curve, Mattu, 16, has been the starting point guard on the Steveston-London Sharks senior girlsâ€™ basketball team since Grade 8, and the perennial MVP in the Richmond high school league. And despite only being ďŹ ve-foot-three, she helped Canadaâ€™s Cadette womenâ€™s national team to a third-place ďŹ nish at the
2011 FIBA Americas under-16 championship last June in Merida, Mexico. Colin Schaap, rowing Noted for his community involvement and helping others less fortunate, Schaap, 18, is also talented rower who helped Canadaâ€™s menâ€™s four to an eight-place ďŹ nish at the 2011 World Junior Rowing Championships and contributed to both the 2010 and 2011 Canadian junior heavyweight eight winning teams. Heâ€™s currently a sophomore at Bostonâ€™s Northeastern University. Jason Scott, gymnastics A member of Canadaâ€™s senior national menâ€™s gymnastics team for the last two years, Scott, 21, was seventh all-around and fourth on thehigh bar at the recent national championships in Regina. He was fourth on the pommel horse at last yearâ€™s Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. Noemie Thomas, swimming Swimming Canadaâ€™s 2011 female youth swimmer of the year, Thomas, 16, trains several times each week under the guidance of UBC Dolphins Swim Club coach Tom Rushton, always with an eye to better than the time before. At the 2011 summer nationals, her personal best of 59.65 seconds in the womenâ€™s 100-metre butterďŹ‚y earned her a Canadian championship. She also won gold in the womenâ€™s 50-metre event, and later in the year reached the ďŹ nal at the 2011 junior worlds in Lima, Peru.
by winning gold on the ďŹ‚oor exercise, silver on high bar, and bronze on the parallel bars. Watson placed 17th all around at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010.
Robert Watson, gymnastics Elite Canadaâ€™s surprise all-around champion for 2012, Watson, 18, displayed his consistency by placing third all-around at the recent national championships in Regina and in the process bypassed athletes who had competed at previous world championships and Olympic Games. He also ďŹ nished atop the podium in all of his event ďŹ nals
Joshua Stuart, gymnastics A member of Canadaâ€™s junior national gymnastics team, Stuart, 16, placed ďŹ rst on rings and high bar and second on the parallel bars at the 2012 Canadians in Regina, after placing fourth on the high bar at the PaciďŹ c Rim Championships earlier this year in Everett, Wash.

RICHMOND REVEALED: Richmond and the Summer Olympics
Canada is coming off a World Rowing Cup gold From Page 1 “Now my expectations are to swim faster than I ever have before and do my best to get all the other guys on the team to do the same so we can do something great for Canada and make the ﬁnal.” After the race (qualifying is scheduled for 9 a.m. Paciﬁc Time Saturday (July 28) and the ﬁnal 12:50 p.m. Paciﬁc Time on Sunday (July 29)), Hortness plans to turn his focus to rowing and supporting his future wife. The women’s eight events are set to begin with the heats Sunday (July 29) at 3:50 a.m. Paciﬁc Time, with the ﬁnal set for 4:30 a.m. Paciﬁc Time on Aug. 2. The repechages (second-chance) go July 31 at 2:50 a.m. Paciﬁc Time. “I’ll be at the ﬁnal Aug. 2 with every intention of watching her, with our families, cross the ﬁnish line,” says Hortness. Marquardt and her teammates are coming off a gold-medal victory in the World Rowing Cup last month in Munich, Germany in a time of six minutes, 19.31 seconds. Romania was second in 6:20.72 and Great Britain third in 6:22.31. Marquardt said the win provided the crew with a great boost of conﬁdence going into the Olympics, but she knows all the other countries will be stepping up their games at the Olympics and an even bigger performance will be necessary. Canada lost out to the U.S. (which didn’t compete in Munich) by .03 seconds for top spot at a World Cup race in Lucerne, Switzerland in May. Planning to wear her engagement ring (which she describes as gorgeous) around her neck during the races, Marquardt will also be drawing on Hortness’ support which she says has been “incredible” over the last four years. “Because he gets the journey and understands that sometimes sport, rest or competition must come ﬁrst,

Richard is very easy-going so when things get a little crazy for me, he calms me down.” Marquardt says every Games’ experience has been vastly different and anticipates London will also be unique. She says she’s honoured and thrilled to again be representing Canada as well as her family, friends and fans. “No Olympic journey is possible without the huge support network that an athlete has around them, and I feel that over the past 10 years (her ﬁrst interna-
tional race was in 2002) I have been lifted higher by those who believe in me,” she says. “Our team’s goal is simple: to ﬁght for the gold medal. And it will be a ﬁght, likely down to the ﬁnal meters of the race, but we are ready and well-prepared to have the race of our lives. I cannot wait.” Following the conclusion of the London Olympics, Marquardt and Hortness plan to travel to the south of Spain and ﬁnd a beach to just relax for a few days. They also hope to explore Paris before heading back to London to pack up and moving back to B.C. Along the way, their goal is to visit as many friends and family between here and Ontario, as well as check out their marriage venue—her grandparents’ cottage in the Okanagan.

RICHMOND REVEALED: Richmond and the Summer Olympics
Richmond Oval serves to inspire internationally Organizers from London, Sochi and Pyeongchang pry local organizer's secrets
by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It’s no secret that imitation is the sincerest form of ﬂattery. And when it comes to its special Olympic recipe for success, the City of Richmond is an open book, more than willing to share what it learned in the period before, during and after the 2010 Winter Games. Even before the 2010 games, Richmond met with London Summer Olympics ofﬁcials to share its ®

plans, as early as 2007, City of Richmond spokesperson Ted Townsend said. So as the London 2012 Games begins today (Friday) half a world away, organizers there drew some level of inspiration from how it was done here. Olympic organizers now look at Richmond as an example of how to use the Olympics to build a community’s proﬁle and to leave legacies, Townsend said. A documentary video produced for the International Olympic Committee and that will be shown to future host cities during the Games, showcases just a handful of venues, with the Richmond Olympic Oval being one of them. Early planning around Richmond’s oval had the venue intended to be used for other purposes post-Games, and for it to serve as a catalyst for change in the waterfront area between the No. 2 Road and Dinsmore bridges. In a similar way, construction for the 2012 Games in London has been concentrated in run-down and economically depressed sections of that city. It’s hoped that in the long-term, the infrastructure investment will revitalize that area of London. Richmond’s oval is at the epicentre of a sprouting multi-billion-dollar waterfront residential neighbourhood, where once stood an RV park and a mix of industrial and commercial warehousing. It wasn’t just the local oval that left Olympic ofﬁcials impressed. The O Zone celebration site at Minoru Park gave locals the feeling they were part of the Olympics. “We decided not just to be a city with an Olympic venue, but a true venue city,” Townsend said, noting the various arts and culture programs that were also launched to coincide with the Olympics.
While Vancouver and Whistler were officially the host city and venue city, Richmond left such an impression that International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge made a point of thanking Richmond in his closing remarks, a gesture that Townsend called an “extraordinary precedent.” How Richmond managed to build its proﬁle to that point is of great interest to other cities that are taking part in the Olympics, and are interesting in getting some of the limelight. “That’s what people want to hear about when they come to Richmond,” Townsend said. Over the years, Townsend said he’s hosted hundreds of tours of the oval from interested parties from around the world. While Olympic delegations have come from London, so have organizers of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and even a group from Pyeongchang, South Korea, hosts of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Lots of organizers have come from Sochi, with their interest focussed largely on the oval. Townsend said Sochi’s speed skating oval site has similar geological engineering challenges as faced Richmond, with the facility being built at or close to sea level, on ground that’s not particularly well suited for it. The winning 2014 Olympic Oval design in Sochi has some facets in common with Richmond’s oval, including the strong use of wood in the roof design, a post-Games plan to use it for exhibitions and to host sports events, and to “become one of the centrepieces of an urban, social and human re-qualiﬁcation of a suburban area,” according to architect Alessandro Zoppini.

A language interpreter who wasn’t permitted by a judge to assist a client during a small claims action in Richmond provincial court, has failed in his bid seeking that the judge’s decision be overturned by the B.C. Supreme Court. Sarb Sandhu made an application to the B.C. Supreme Court, seeking the court to intervene in a decision made by Richmond provincial court judge Jane McKinnon. Sandhu was hired by Gordev Nahal in May of last year to provide translation and interpretation services for him during a small claims trial. Just after the case was called, but before the trial began, McKinnon said to Sandhu: “You are not on the list. You cannot act as an interpreter in this matter.” She claimed Sandhu was not on the “courtcertified interpreter” list, a list which B.C. Supreme Court Justice J. Miriam Gropper later found doesn’t exist. While the provincial court doesn’t maintain a certified list of interpreters, there is a list of interpreters who are on contract with and screened by the Ministry of the Attorney General. McKinnon researched whether Sandhu was permitted to serve as a court interpreter, and discovered he wasn’t on this list. Sandhu then had a lawyer appear in court, but McKinnon denied a request for a voir dire hearing. McKinnon said: “I cannot rule on somebody’s competency, as an interpreter in this way..I can’t possibly detemine (if Mr. Sandhu) is competent or not.” McKinnon ruled that Sandhu “had no standing, he is merely...a person who is retained by one of the parties in this civil litigation.” And Justice Gropper agreed that Sandhu had no standing to challenge McKinnon’s ruling. The lawyer for McKinnon suggested that Sandhu is “in the same position as an expert witness whom the court determines cannot give evidence in a trial where, for example, the court finds that expert to be biased or an advocate for a party. Such a decision may affect that expert’s reputation and his or her livelihood, but the expert does not have standing to challenge the ruling.” Justice Gropper ruled that Sandhu was not owed a duty of procedural fairness and natural justice.

arts & entertainment Biennale could be back As long as the city can secure sponsorship, it looks promising that the City of Richmond will participate in the 2013-2015 Vancouver International Sculpture Biennale. At Tuesday's parks and recreation committee meeting, members of council supported the idea of bringing art back to Richmond like during the 2010 Winter Olympics. In a report authored by Jane Fernyhough, the city's director of arts, culture and heritage, she wrote the Richmond Public Art Advisory Committee "enthusiastically supports the involvement of the city in this program." The cost to the city would be $75,000 for three "signiﬁcant contemporary sculptures" to be installed starting in late 2013, with proposed locations including the city centre area and private sites, with an eye on maximizing exposure and visits to the art works. Olas de Viento (Wind Waves) at Garry Point Park, Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head on Elmbridge Way, and Doors of Knowledge at Minoru Park were among the higher proﬁle 2009-2011 Biennale artwork installed in Richmond.

War scene in Steveston, as ABC fantasy show returns
by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A mysterious massive bulging mound, smashed windows, overturned cars and a boat and charred rubble littering Moncton Streetâ€”it looked like a war zone in Steveston Wednesday morning for the return of the ABC TV fantasy show Once Upon a Time. The hit Sunday night family show resumed shooting this week in Richmond for the second season, which will air this fall on Sunday nights.
And it was a magical return highlighted by a display of Hollywood's best special effects that fooled many passersby, who honestly thought some mega-scale accident had befallen this quaint ďŹ shing village. A Richmond Mountie said a few slabs of black styrofoam that greeted him early Wednesday morning was transformed before his eyes into what looks like an erupting mound that bulges and cracks the centre of Moncton Street. He noticed that at the heart of the moundâ€” that looks like a giant mole hill that tore up the asphaltâ€”was a green screen, and he guessed that will likely show some manner of magical creature invading Storybrooke, the town that's at the centre of the show's storyline.
Among those actors seen in Steveston on Wednesday were Lana Parrilla, who plays the Evil Queen and Mayor of Storybrooke, and Lee Arenberg, Grumpy of the Snow White and Seven Dwarfs. From the creators of Lost, Once Upon a Time premiered last October to outstanding TV ratings. The story centres around Emma Swan, who doesn't realize she's the daughter of Prince Charming and Snow White, and her son Henry Mills, whom she gave up for adoption and who reunites with her, and tries to convince her she's from this magical world. A spell by the Evil Queen that's intended to kill Prince Charming and Snow White sends all of the fantasy characters into a ďŹ ctional world void of magic. But after the ďŹ rst sea-

Appia Development able to start sales
SOLO District gets city approval Appia Development’s newest community has been given the green light by the City of Burnaby to begin sales, which it did on Saturday, July 21. “We’ve already had an overwhelming response from people all around the Lower Mainland about SOLO District,” says Appia President Jim Bosa. “We’ve had several thousand people visit our sales centre to preview the units over the past few weeks. We’re now excited to be able to start selling.” Short for South Of Lougheed, SOLO will include 1,400 suites in four towers ranging from 38 to 55 storeys, a Whole Foods, large rooftop garden, pedestrian pathways, elevated dog park and other
commercial and retail spaces, among other things. The Brentwood SkyTrain station is right across the street. “We firmly believe that SOLO District is poised to change the way we live in the Lower Mainland,” says George Wong of Magnum Projects. “SOLO District will have everything anyone needs within a short distance. Buyers will not only get access to fresh produce at Whole Foods, but easily accessible transit via the SkyTrain, short commutes to downtown Vancouver (and) car-sharing options through Modo.” For more information, visit www. solodistrict.com or call 604-298-8800.
The large dining room table sits in front of a fireplace, surrounded by windows to showcase the mountain all around you. A deck wraps halfway around the home, and an outdoor fireplace and hot tub will also be part of the grand prize. The great room beside the kitchen has its own fireplace and curved windows, letting natural light pour into the home. “It doesn’t feel like a show home,” says Harris. “I wanted to give it a cozy feel. The home gives you a hug.” Outside, the home will fit perfectly into the mountain surroundings, with its rustic architecture and large windows. That rustic architecture continues inside. Homey stone walls, cork flooring and exposed wooden beams are featured throughout, really
giving you the atmosphere of being in a ski lodge. “I started designing a dream house for people, but this is really my dream house,” Harris says. “It’s my dream (ensuite) bathroom, my dream bedroom, everything ... It was important that this home pulls at your heart strings. It has to make your heart go pitter patter.” The Prize Home can be viewed at the PNE from Aug. 18 onwards, or on Aug. 5 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tickets are $25 for 5 or $50 for 15. For more information visit www. pne.ca/pneprizehome. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone or in person at the PNE. The winner’s name will be announced on Sept. 12. “I am so jealous of the person who wins,” Harris says.
A home away from home
PNE Prize Home makes your heart go pitter patter by Kerry Vital
The Pacific National Exhibition is bringing in the big guns for this year’s PNE Prize Home, built by Britco Structures and featuring furniture from Lane Home Furnishings. The home was designed by Jillian Harris, a former star of The Bachelorette, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Canada’s Handyman Challenge. She will next be co-hosting Love It or List It Vancouver. Recently she has been busy designing homes all over the U.S. and Canada, but the PNE Prize Home is close to her heart after living in Kelowna and Vancouver. “I wanted to do something locally,” she says, adding that it seemed like a fun project and she was looking forward to being able to have creative freedom to design the home, which will be located at the Sun Peaks Resort. The over 3,000-square-foot house includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a 20-foot vaulted ceiling, among many other beautiful features. Designing the PNE Prize Home presented a bit of a challenge for Harris. “The home has to appeal to everyone,” she says. “It’s going to be someone’s home away from home.” She took inspiration from the classic Hudson’s Bay blanket, and aimed for a shabby chic feel.
“I tried to integrate modern details,” she says. “I was able to be more whimsical and edgy with this home because it’s a vacation home, instead of something they’ll live in every day.” And whimsical it is, with a dedicated sports room on the lower level with a ski-in ski-out entrance and a sleep loft featuring four bunk beds and an interior Juliet-style balcony looking over the bottom floor. The master bedroom is going to be seriously comfortable, with a walk-in closet and amazing ensuite bathroom with a huge soaker tub, glittery chandelier, dual vanities and a large shower stall. A balcony is located off of the master bedroom as well, so you’ll have plenty of space to enjoy the view. Downstairs, the kitchen is a gourmet’s dream, with stainless-steel appliances and lots of counter space. The walk-in wine cellar is a work of genius, though Harris says it was a bit of a hard-sell for her crew. “It has a real wow factor,” she says, adding that it’s her favourite part.
It was important that this home pulls at your heart strings,” says designer Jillian Harris.
Designer Jillian Harris says that the PNE Prize Home is her dream house, with a spacious kitchen, top, and beautiful rustic features on the exterior, above. The huge living room features a 20-foot vaulted ceiling and a gorgeous stone ﬁreplace, left.

For the 18th year in a row, Sutton Group – Seafair Realty was proud to host the salmon barbeque at the Steveston Salmon Festival. More than 40 realtors from Sutton Group along with their families and friends volunteered to grill and serve 1,200 pounds of salmon for hungry visitors. They sold every piece of salmon available! This year’s barbeque raised approximately $30,000 for various children’s and seniors’ programs at the Steveston Community Centre. “We all had a great Sutton team effort,” said realtor Jim Hinchcliffe, who has organized this event since 1994.
Organizers and participants of the Mrs. Global Chinese Pageant visit one of the 15 private maternity care rooms at the recently renovated state-of-the-art Birthing Centre at Richmond Hospital. The tour was a follow-up to a $15,000 contribution from pageant organizers to Richmond Hospital Foundation.
