Drug houses still hunted by city inspectors Team relies on B.C. Hydro information and tips to conduct electrical and fire safety inspections

It did find, however, that electricity powered all heating units and appliances, along with a hot water tank and hot tub. An inspector also estimated the home’s analog electricity meter was reading 24 per cent higher than it should be, and noted a lack of insulation in the home. Homes tapped for inspections face a $4,200 fee if a grow-op is found. In this case, the city waived the inspection fee, suggesting the homeowner contact B.C. Hydro regarding the inconsistent meter.

by Matthew Hoekstra

Growers get creative

Staff Reporter Inspectors arrived at the house with a police officer at 9 a.m., five days after warning the homeowner they had reason to look around. The city’s electrical and fire safety inspection team had flagged the house for its “excessive” use of electricity—often the sign of a marijuana grow operation. Each year, the team inspects homes with higher-than-average electricity use—more than 93 kilowatts per day—based on data provided by B.C. Hydro, along with following up on tips and RCMP investigations. The team focuses on safety, not putting growers behind bars. In the case of this house, Hydro data showed, on average, 275 kilowatt hours of electricity was being used—over six times the daily consumption of an typical Metro Vancouver house. The owner granted access to a fire inspector, electrical inspector and an RCMP officer for the Sept. 7, 2011 inspection, according to one of several records obtained by The Richmond Review. But the team found no evidence of a growop, nor did it find any wiring problems.

In the first year of the inspection program, 2007, 64 grow-ops were uncovered in 126 inspections. In 2008, just six grow-ops were found in 52 inspections. The city temporarily shut down the program later that year order to make changes to address a B.C. Supreme Court ruling, which said police had too great a presence in inspections. Although more recent data wasn’t available (The Review requested the information, but it was not provided by press time), fewer grow-ops are being uncovered by inspectors. A 2009 staff report suggested the drop could be due to grow-ops locating elsewhere or finding alternative sources of power—including stealing power—to stay undetected. “The operators are just discovering new methods and places to produce their product,” said the report from deputy fire chief Kim Howell and then RCMP inspector Janis Gray, who added abandoning the program would simply invite grow-ops to return. Bypassing a Hydro meter can help grow operators avoid detection by inspectors, but not necessarily the RCMP. On Sept. 30, 2010, Richmond RCMP’s marijuana enforcement team

executed a search warrant at an unoccupied house in Richmond. Officers found a grow-op and a heavily-altered electrical system. The next day, the city’s electrical and fire safety inspection team handposting a notice of inspection on the residence and delivered a copy to the homeowner. Two weeks later, the homeowner had yet to respond, so a Richmond court justice granted the inspection team an administrative warrant, giving the team permission to enter the home without the owner’s consent. Inspectors found an active marijuana grow-op, complete with plants, grow lights, fans, moisture damage and mould. Police had already cut power to the house, where inspectors found serious problems.

“The inspection team discovered significant fire and electrical safety concerns such that immediate action was required to eliminate the hazard to life and property,” according to the inspection report. Those responsible for the plants had bypassed the Hydro meter to power the operation, located upstairs in a single-family home. In this case, the homeowner would be responsible for the inspection fee, along with all costs associated with restoring the home to a safe condition and followup inspections.

steal electricity, according to Jordan Diplock and Darryl Plecas of the University of the Fraser Valley. The researchers estimated the total annual theft of electricity by grow operators in B.C. to be $109.4 million, according to their April 2011 report, “The Increasing Problem of Electrical Consumption in Indoor Marihuana Grow Operations in British Columbia.” Stealing power or not, grow-ops present significant electrical hazards to occupants of a house and neighbours. Diplock and Plecas found that houses with grow-ops are at least five times more likely to catch fire than normal residential homes. See Page 6

Plastic problem plagues Pacific Ocean With Japanese tsunami debris heading toward West Coast, researchers shed light on bigger worldwide plastic problem

It consists of discarded plastic detergent bottles, water bottles, and other everyday plastic objects. “It’s like looking at your own garbage, spread out through the ocean,” she told reporters. “You can see a lot of sea life is ingesting the plastic,” Crowley said, explaining a video she presented which shows that plastic containers slowly break up into smaller pieces, and some are eventually ingested by sea life, such as jellyfish. Aside from killing marine life, researchers by Jamie Peng and fear the plastic is entering the human food Martin van den Hemel chain, something researchers hope Staff Reporters to verify and demonstrate.

Mountie hurt after hit by impaired driver Police cruiser sideswiped by car during routine traffic stop by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter One Richmond RCMP officer was injured and two others narrowly avoided a similar fate during a routine traffic stop on Westminster Highway and No. 5 Road around 2 a.m. on Saturday. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said the injured officer had pulled over a vehicle, whose driver couldn’t speak English and so wasn’t

following the officer’s instructions to pull over to the right side. Turley said the traffic stop was conducted in the left turn lane. The officer requested translation assistance, and a second RCMP cruiser arrived at the scene with two officers. Just after the first officer sat down inside his vehicle, a car plowed into the rear passenger side of the police cruiser, and propelled the officer forward into the steering wheel and dashboard of the vehicle. He suffered a concussion and soft tissue damage. The two other officers were standing outside their vehicle and somehow managed to avoid being hit, Turley said. The injured RCMP officer is a fouryear veteran, Turley said, and he was

taken to hospital and released, and still remains away from work. The officers from the second RCMP cruiser chased after the suspect vehicle, which fled the scene after the collision. A short time later, the officers pulled over the suspect’s vehicle, driven by a 28-year-old man from Vancouver who was arrested for impaired driving. “In speaking with the injured officer I was told that if the car came along a bit earlier, the officer would have been run over,” said Turley. “The officer had his emergency lights activated and it was a clear night so there should be no reason to not see the patrol car.” The collision was also witnessed by others, who remained at the scene to talk to investigators.

by Tom Fletcher Black Press It won’t happen in time for the provincial election next spring, but the B.C. government is moving ahead with Premier Christy Clark’s pledge to examine online voting at the local and provincial level. Some municipalities have suggested modernizing elections to make voting more convenient, and reverse the recent trend to lower voter participation. Clark proposed the idea during last year’s B.C. Liberal leadership campaign. Justice Minister Shirley Bond announced Thursday that she has asked Chief Electoral Officer Keith Archer to set up an expert panel to make recommendations. Archer asked the government last year to give him authority to conduct pilot projects for electronic voting, and to consider extending voter registration to 16- and 17-year-olds, as has been done in Australia and some U.S. states. During his leadership bid, Health Minister Mike de Jong proposed lowering the voting age from 18 to 16, to encourage younger people to get involved

as part of their high school education. Nola Western, deputy chief electoral officer at Elections B.C., said the panel will likely need until 2014 to recommend changes to the Election Act that would permit online voting. Independent experts on Internet security and electoral administration will be asked to serve on a committee chaired by Archer, with a first meeting expected by October. Elections BC already has online voter registration, as well as data sharing with the federal voters’ list, ICBC and the B.C. Vital Statistics Agency to keep the voters’ list up to date. Western said online voting has been used in Halifax and Markham, Ont., but has not yet been tried at the provincial or federal level in Canada.

Electrical and fire safety inspection programs used in Richmond and around the region are flawed, according to the B.C. Civil Liberties Association. “Our allegation is simply this is an end run around the warrant process,” said policy director Micheal Vonn. Vonn said if police suspect someone is breaking the law, they’re required to obtain a warrant before searching someone’s home. In the case of Richmond’s inspection program, municipal inspectors can obtain adminis-

using the back door into what is not permissible through the front door,” said Vonn. The District of Mission is the “poster child” for what’s wrong with such programs, said Vonn. In that community, residents have brought a class action lawsuit against the district. “People have lost their homes where no grow-ops were found. The ramifications of these programs when you log in suspicion of grow-op to a police database, or you have a district that takes it upon itself to inform banks that might be holding your mortgage that they have conducted such an inspection, people have lost their insurance and their ability to re-mortgage...” she said. While some such problems may not have surfaced in other jurisdictions, Vonn said the “entire foundation” of inspection programs are nonetheless flawed. Said Vonn: “The kinds of abuses and concerns that have been generated about these programs have certainly not given us any cause to think that we we’re wrong.”

Grow-ops contain electrical hazards From Page 1 “The changes made to houses and other buildings to supply power to marihuana growing operations require special training, certification and inspection to ensure proper function and safety. However, in the pursuit of high profits, growers are more concerned with avoiding detection than preventing electrical hazards,” said the report. Such electrical hazards are even found in legal grow-ops. On Nov. 17, 2011, the city’s inspection team probed an owner-occupied Richmond house with a daily electricity use of 120 kilowatt hours. In previous years, the house just used one-quarter that amount. Inspectors found 72 marijuana plants growing in a garage. But this operation was legal, as the homeowner had a medical marijuana grow-op licence. Yet inspectors noted the grow-op was designed without an electrical permit or inspection. The homeowner was handed a seven-day order for a certified electrician to go over all the connections.

City has asked owner to clean up dumpy property by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The owner of a property at 4280 Westminster Hwy. has been asked to clean up his act, otherwise the city will do it for him, and hand him the bill. Area resident Beryl Woollard contacted The Richmond Review to complain about the vacant corner property—at the intersection with Gibbons Drive—which is overgrown with weeds and tall grass, having deteriorated into a neighbourhood eyesore since the house on the property was torn down many years ago. City of Richmond spokesperson Ted Townsend said late Tuesday afternoon that the city received a complaint late last month, and has requested the owner to take action. “...Under the Community Charter, we do have to give the owners a reasonable period of time to address the issue themselves before the city can take any direction action at the owner’s expense,� Townsend said in an e-mail.

EDITORIAL: We reap what we sow

W

hile we’re unlikely to see an end to the debate about climate change anytime soon, this week we saw firsthand how the human race is impacting Mother Nature. The Japanese research vessel Kaisei is in Richmond this week for the Maritime Festival in Steveston, and researchers onboard that vessel brought samples of the thousands of tonnes of plastic that is polluting the Pacific Ocean. Comprising plastic drink cups and laundry detergent containers to chunks of foam, plastic grocery bags and other man-made products, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch stretches the size of the state of Texas, perhaps even twice as large. Some of the plastic remains recognizable, but others have been smashed to smithereens, turning into a floating toxic cloud of small particles that ocean life appears to be feeding upon. And that means it could be winding up in the food chain, and end up in a different form on your dining table. We are a consumer-based society, and there’s no changing that, but people need to become more responsible in how they dispense their waste. Much of the hundreds of millions of tonnes of plastics produced annually is somehow winding up in the ocean. And that mess desperately needs cleaning up. What’s more, the dangerous chemicals that make up these plastics are leaching into the waters, a further invisible hazard. Also on the environmental front, Bing Thom Architects recently released a study about the impact rising sea levels will have on Vancouver. Should the seas rise five metres or more, more than $25 billion worth of Vancouver real estate could be impacted, in addition to the impact on roads, sewers and electrical facilities. City of Richmond staff are currently looking at the city’s own system of dike protection, with the cost of upgraded dikes in the city expected to reach $200 million or more, a cost to be borne over the next quarter century. In a nutshell, we reap what we sow. Think about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch the next time you fail to recycle anything plastic. You probably won’t pay the price, but your children and grandchildren surely will.

The Kaisei brought samples of the thousands of tonnes of plastic that is polluting the Pacific Ocean.

I

t feels good to be back; to smell the ocean, to be surrounded by greenery, to see herons and eagles, to visit my favourite Shanghai restaurants. I’m home and starting another journey. I’ve recently returned from working abroad and

have been hired on with the Richmond Food Security Society taking over from the amazing Arzeena Hamir. As many people know, Arzeena wrote a weekly column for The Richmond Review which I feel honoured to be able to continue. I wanted to start this column by introducing myself and describe the importance of food security. Our family has been in Richmond for more than 20 years. We lived on Francis near No. 2 Road, where as kids, my brother and I would play in our yard. Some of my earliest memories are of climbing our cherry trees and eating fresh fruit! We were athletic kids, being a part of the Richmond Kigoos swim and waterpolo clubs and the Steveston Judo club. I attended Tomekichi

Homma Elementary and then moved on to Hugh McRoberts Secondary where I was in the French Immersion program. Later I would move out of Richmond to pursue a degree in agroecology and soil science at UBC. This is where I gained a passion for food and became aware of the issues with our food system. I wanted to find workable solutions to these issues that could work for people so I went to Guelph for a Master’s degree in Planning where I focused on agriculture, environment and governance. Often, people will ask me what it is that I do, to which, I reply that I work in food security. The response received has been mixed. The strangest interpretation, so far, is that food security is locking away food and protecting

it with guards, dogs and surveillance equipment! Imagine my surprise! Broadly speaking, food security means access to food for all. Its roots come from social justice work in helping to get healthy and nutritious foods to vulnerable populations (e.g. youth, seniors, immigrants, low income, and people with disabilities). Today, the definition has broadened to include safety, sustainability (the way food is grown), affordability (how much it costs), appropriateness (cultural food products), availability (abundance of food), as well as accessibility (proximity of food). When one thinks of food security in those terms, it is easy to see that many of us experience food insecurity in some way, whether the price of nutritious food is too high or that we don’t

have access to locally available items (e.g. rice). The 2011 Cost of Eating in BC report shows that families on income assistance spend 33-49% of their income on food, compared to those of median income at 15%. Addressing this insecurity requires us to get reacquainted to our food and to redefine our relationship with what we consume. This can come about by purchasing local foods, learning to grow your own vegetables, donating to local food banks and community meals, or simply eating leftovers. The more connected we are to our food the more able we are to connect to one another and to build stronger, vibrant communities. Colin Dring is executive director at Richmond Food Security Society.

letters laneway/roadway (it is nameless) which runs from Dave’s Fish and Chips on Moncton to Bayview. When I arrived, there were six cars parked on the side of this nameless piece of asphalt facing Bayview with room for one more car at the front of the line which I took. Before leaving my car, I checked for signs which might indicate that parking was not allowed, fire lane, towaway zone etc. Not one sign is in evidence on the entire lane from Dave’s to Bayview. After seeing the ticket on my

windshield, I walked the entire lane and there were no signs of any sort to indicate that parking was not allowed on this roadway. But I was not the only one ticketed in that line of cars. The other six cars parked were ticketed at $70 each. The ticket states that it’s a “NO STOPPING ZONE.” If there were signs in place, do you think all six cars would have parked there? I don’t think so. To the City of Richmond, I will see you in court. Gary M. Assaly Richmond

Pascal Rodier—a class act Editor: I read with interest, regret, and admiration Pascal Rodier’s thank you letter to Richmond. He and Dustine have been more than skilled professionals, they have been valued members of our community. Their lives have been entwined with those of us living in Steveston and Richmond. When Dustine and Pascal lived a few doors down from my in-laws, their children were a welcome and lively part of the neighbourhood who brightened my elderly in-laws’ lives. Everyone always cheered louder when either of them passed by during the Steveston Salmon Festival parade. The Rodiers’ Hallowe’en displays in the townhouse complex were stellar particularly the year that it was done up as a scene from CSI complete with police tape, evidence numbers and a “dead” Jack-o’-lantern sprawled in the driveway. They kept an eye out for our crumbly elders and would pop over to check on them. Even after he left the ambulance service, Pascal dropped by our house to check on their health after having seen yet another collection of emergency vehicles at our home. Pascal’s good bye letter shows what a class act he is. The Rodier family will be missed. Lorraine Graves Richmond

Ref not to blame in Canada’s soccer loss Editor: A tough loss in the Olympics for the Canadian women’s soccer team in the semifinals. Yet they brought it upon themselves. I reviewed the second half of the previous game against the Great Britain team and the Canadian goalie broke the Six Seconds Rule at least six times when she held on to the ball for 17, 18, 10, 16, 14 and 19 seconds. She was warned by the assistant referee and the Great Britain players complained also. No doubt her prior actions were in the mind of the referee in the game against the United States and when her continued time-wasting was brought up by the U.S. team it was only a matter of time until the referee stepped in and penalized our goalie. Clearly the Canadian coach should have noted this lack of discipline and prepared Erin Macleod better for the match against the United Sates. So please do not blame the referee on this one— she was doing her job. What a shame that this time-wasting had such severe consequences and took away from one of the great Canadian team performances in recent years. The six-second rule, along with the no-passback rule, are important rules that contribute greatly to making a soccer game an exciting spectator event and both rules have played their part in the global soccer explosion of the past 15 years. Before these rules were implemented, we often had to suffer through gross time-wasting tactics among defenders and goalie. Now that penalty award—that's another story entirely!

RCMP abuse lawsuit hears from high-proďŹ le champion Former BBB head latest RCMP accuser to step forward by Jeff Nagel Black Press A proposed class-action lawsuit alleging bullying and harassment against women in the RCMP got a high-proďŹ le champion on the ďŹ rst day of hearings last week. Valerie MacLean, an RCMP constable at Maple Ridge in the late 1970s and former head of the Better Business Bureau, said she’s joined the suit in an attempt to see justice and a fair hearing for the victims. “We didn’t join to be harassed or be humiliated or be told that our career depended on us being friendly or having relations with our direct supervisors,â€? MacLean told reporters. She said she complained to other officers when her supervisor pressured her to be

“friendlyâ€? in exchange for advancement, but nothing was done and she quit the force in 1979 after he gave her a poor assessment. “Years later, nothing has changed,â€? MacLean said. “This systemic culture in the RCMP of harassment and not accepting these women as equals has to stop.â€? Lawyers expect a long legal battle with the RCMP on behalf of potentially hundreds of women who allege abusive behaviour by other Mounties while serving in the force. It’s expected to take until sometime in 2013 for a ruling on whether the proposed classaction lawsuit will be certiďŹ ed. At the centre of the case is former Nanaimo RCMP Const. Janet Merlo, whose claim alleges she was the victim of “persistent and ongoing gender-based discrimination and harassmentâ€? by male Mounties at the detachment and that the RCMP did nothing to stop it. Jason Murray, one of Merlo’s lawyers, said more than 200 other

the oppor tunity is there.â€? Murray said he was troubled by the RCMP’s “mud slingingâ€? response to the separate harassment lawsuit of former RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Catherine Galliford. The force denied her claims of abuse and sexual assault and painted her as an alcoholic who refused treatment. RCMP spokesman Cpl. David Falls said the force is challenging the certiďŹ cation because it doesn’t meet the criteria of a class action, adding the allegations have not yet been heard in court and wouldn’t until and unless a class action is certiďŹ ed. “The RCMP has a responsibility to protect itself against unproven and harmful allegations,â€? he said. “If, after investigation, there are cases found to have merit, the RCMP will give them the appropriate consideration.â€? Merlo worked for the RCMP in Nanaimo from 1991 to 2010. Her allegations include that male ofďŹ cers tried to position her next to an inatable naked female doll that was kept at the detachment. Her claim recounts a barrage of insults, derogatory comments and sexual innuendo, sometimes with senior ofďŹ cers brandishing sex toys or claiming to her husband that they’d had sex with her. Her pregnancy was also fodder for abuse, according to the claim, which says male ofďŹ cers ridiculed her ability to do her job while expecting and that an angry supervisor yelled at her when told she was pregnant. Merlo claims she received unfair treatment – male Mounties could go on three-hour hockey games and got easier sick time and shift change arrangements than she did.

BCGEU raise offer withdrawn

Falcon said the wage offer could be withdrawn if strikes continued. “We hope we don’t have to repeat job action going forward,” BCGEU president Darryl Walker wrote on his blog Wednesday. “But that’s the likelihood if the government doesn’t make us a fair and reasonable offer soon. We

are prepared to take job action to the next level if we have to.” Last week Walker led a rally in Vancouver to publicize the union’s proposal to expand its deputy sheriff services to include traffic enforcement, raising extra fine revenue that could be used for pay raises.

After targeting provincial ministry offices with their second one-day strike, the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union says the provincial government has followed through on its threat to withdraw its offered wage increase. BCGEU negotiators had rejected a raise of two per cent this year and 1.5 per cent next year when it was presented in late June. Citing a two-year wage freeze leading up to this year’s negotiations, the union wants 3.5 this year and a raise equivalent to the cost of living increase for 2013. The latest one-day strike created a four-day long weekend for 180 employees in provincial ministry offices Tuesday. BCGEU members refused to work at three forests ministry offices, with 40 staff in Surrey, 50 in Campbell River and 60 combined at transportation and forest ministry offices in 100 Mile House.

fitness Harold Morioka at 69 – a sprinting legend on the comeback trail

Christine Blanchette

Harold Morioka always had a passion for running but only at 29 did he decide to race the 100 metres at a 1972 Simon Fraser University track meet. No big deal, you say? Well, he went on to finish second in 11.0 at the Burnaby Mountain campus, despite no formal training of any kind. Then he decided to train and by age 30 became B.C. champion in both the 100m and 200m. Along the way, he achieved degrees in education and kinesiology, and would teach high school and coach track for many years at Coquitlam’s Centennial Secondary School. That’s where it began for a man that would overcome adversity of all kinds and beat the odds to set multiple world records to go with at least 100 Canadian age group sprint records. Morioka is the only athlete to break world records for all distances from 60m to 800m. Deciding at age 50 to focus primarily on the 400m, he still holds the masters 45 world record of 50.60 seconds and in fact, holds every Canadian age group record at 400m from 45 to 60. Still, one of his most impressive achievements was setting a world 45-49 record in the 100m at the Canadian Masters Championships in Toronto, his time of 11.11 representing, “I think the best race I’ve ever done,” Morioka said from the Richmond offices of his sponsor, Organika Health Inc. Resplendent in his athletic gear, he was fit, unassuming and friendly, looking much younger than his years. Born February 2, 1943 at a Japanese internment camp in the B.C. Interior, Morioka lived there until age six when he moved, along with his parents, an older brother and two sisters, to a farm in Surrey. “I got my name from the

nurse who delivered me at the internment camp.” Like many other Japanese Canadians, the Morioka family lost everything when they were forced to move to the camp. At the farm, they would have to share the work to make ends meet, leaving no time for extra curricular activities. But there was plenty of healthy food which would help lay the foundation for future successes. “To this day I follow a healthy diet,” he said. He has paid a huge price for his extended pursuit of excellence, enduring five knee surgeries since turning 54, while also surviving a genetic heart condition which led to open heart surgery in 2009. By now you will likely suspect none of this will keep Morioka down or stop him from getting into top competitive shape. When he wasn’t able to run after surgery, he added cross training such as deep water pool running to shorten the recovery road. Morioka’s incredible story is not just about an amazing runner, but an extraordinary human being who against all odds beat adversity from his childhood growing up in the camp, to dealing with major health issues to making the world stage as a runner. Athletes like Morioka come along about as frequently as 200-point hockey players. He even raced Canadian Olympian Charmaine Crooks at 400m when she was in her prime and though she beat him, he ran his age, which means he was nipping at her heels in 51 seconds as a 51-year-old. These days, if he’s not on the track training with his masters club, the Greyhounds, he is coaching. “I want to make a comeback where I will compete at the Brazil World Championships in October. I hope to run the 400 meters under 60 seconds and win the gold.” Like Wayne Gretzky used to do so often, it should surprise no one if Harold Morioka continues to set records. And we’ll just continue to be inspired by what he does.

The Hokum Steamers bring good-time music of the ’20s and ’30s to Steveston by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Mike Ballantyne played music only occasionally since 1986, when he called it quits as a longtime touring musician singing folk, blues, country and jazz. But three years ago, he bought a new guitar. “I jumped right into ragtime blues because it was the most fun of all the genres of music I had played,” said Ballantyne, who performs as part of the Hokum Steamers next Thursday in a Steveston Folk Guild show. Ballantyne assembled a small list of songs and called a musician he knew, Rick Van Krugel, to

This led to more gigs here and there on the Island.” They became the Hokum Steamers, releasing their first CD in January: Doing the Cater Street Shimmy. The ragtime blues duo per-

forms authentic renditions of ‘20s and ‘30s blues, gospel and hokum music—a lighthearted type of American blues. Baritone Ballantyne sings and handles both the six- and 12-string guitars, while master musician Van Krugel also sings and plays mandolin and guitar. Their repertoire is taken from early blues performers such as the Hokum Boys, Will Shade’s Memphis Jug Band and Gertrude “Ma” Rainey. It’s “fun and wholesome” music performed in medicine shows nearly a century ago. According to Ballantyne, travelling medicine shows were often staged from roaming horse-drawn wagons or tents selling products “guaranteed” to work—or at least dull the pain due to considerable alcohol, cocaine, heroin or opium content. To attract customers, the shows hired musicians, whose repertoire included country blues, hokum, jug band songs and jazz blues. See Page 17

Ragtime blues and gospel is fun From Page 16 The Richmond Review caught up with Ballantyne on Wednesday— practice day. How is this music different from what you performed earlier in your music career? “My first recording was made with the Tarriers RN, a folk group I was with on board ship, in the Royal Navy. Our ship was based in Singapore and we made an EP for Phillips Records. Two of the four songs on the EP were blues and I sang the lead with the group, so the blues has been with me for quite a while. “About the same time, or a little bit later, Rick was playing with a jug band in California and their repertoire included much of the

same sort of material that we now play.” What attracts you to music of the ’20s and ’30s? “We have both diversified during our musical careers but ragtime blues and gospel is fun for us and for the audiences and we enjoy playing together. We make a point of keeping to the 1920s and 1930s because they were the seminal decades in the genre— both for blues and for gospel. “The gospel is included because it is eminently singable and is generally familiar to the audience. An entertainer, as opposed to a singer-songwriter promoting his or her own material, doesn’t want to present totally alien material to his or her

audience.” Are you doing any songwriting as a duo? “Rick and I have both written songs or tunes but we feel that we need to identify with a specific genre of songs to be honest to the songs. There is a tremendous amount of material from the ’20s and ’30s and it touches on jazz and vaudeville as well as blues, ragtime and gospel.” What’s lies ahead for the Hokum Steamers? “We want to continue providing enjoyment to all who listen to us, and we would like to become a readily recognizable name in music and to play festivals and clubs far and wide.”

Second just reward for Chuckers Richmond survives 11-inning marathon to reach B.C. Midget AAA baseball championship final by Don Fennell Sports Editor With the mercury rising to a searing 34.5 degrees last Sunday in Chilliwack, it was the kind of sultry summer day best enjoyed on a pool deck or nearby Cultus Lake.

But there was no such relief at the Fairfield Island diamonds, where the best Midget AAA baseball teams in B.C., including the Richmond City Chuckers, gathered for the annual provincial championship. And where, ironically, the Chuckers engaged in a

four-hour marathon a mere 60 minutes before the first pitch was scheduled to be thrown in the 2 p.m. final. Richmond entered the provincials confidently on Thursday, facing a Cloverdale Spurs’ team they had taken four of five games from during the regular

season. But an inability to produce any offence spoiled a solid pitching performance by Brandon Kirk and the Spurs surprised the Chuckers 3-0. That forced the Chuckers into a must-win scenario Friday against the host Chilliwack Cougars.

Even with their ace thrower Nawid Niyaz on the hill, Richmond still had trouble scoring until finally breaking free of the cobwebs in the top of the fifth inning when Jonah Rose got things going with a triple. That set the stage for five runs with Tyler Milford, Blake Hogg,

Spencer Wiersma and Michael Yamaguchi (2) earning RBIs. Niyaz didn’t allow an earned run and gave up only a single hit in six-andhalf innings in a 5-0 win. “Chilliwack was right with us during the season and I think we split our games (22) against each other, but I was confident we were going to get a win,” Richmond manager Raul Verde Rios said. “It’s the way it was through the whole season. When we needed to win we usually came up with one. And when you have one of the best on the mound you gain some confidence there that you’re going to take it no matter what.” At 1-1, Richmond faced another major challenge Saturday taking on the vaunted Victoria Selects in another must-win game.

But again the Chuckers rose to the occasion, surging ahead in the top of the fifth inning on a three-run single by Brendan Mullin and then extending their lead in the sixth when Kirk doubled to set Milford up for the eventual gamewinning run. Predictably, Victoria, the top seed, battled back with three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning but relief pitcher Wiersma was able to close out the win with Selects on second and third base. At that point, Verde Rios said he considered the game against Victoria to be the best in the tournament. Then came Sunday’s 11-inning, nail-biting marathon with No. 3 seed Tri-City Indians.

Pair to play for Team BC at nationals From Page 18 Tri-City had won all three of its preliminary games, but it was the Chuckers—clearly sporting renewed energy and confidence—that jumped out to an early lead with Matt Cameron staking them to a 1-0 lead by cashing in on a sacrifice bunt by Wesley Parrill. Richmond made it 2-0 in the fourth when Kirk scored on a Wiersma single, but Tri-City tied it up with two runs of their own in the top of the fifth. The see-saw continued in the sixth and seventh innings, with Richmond taking leads of 4-2 and 5-2 but Tri-City again tying the score with three runs in the bottom of the seventh. Things got even more tense for the Chuckers and their fans when Tri-City loaded the bases, but pitcher Niyaz was able to work his way out of the inning. Kirk, who began warming up during the last couple of innings of regulation play, came on in the eighth to throw three solid innings in relief. He didn’t allow a hit let alone a run. But in the 10th, after coming up with 10 runs, manager Verde Rios called on Spencer McHattie to close the deal and Richmond was off to the final following a 15-5 victory. “I thought the Victoria game was one of the most exciting games I’ve ever coached, but this one I think beats them all,” said Verde Rios, whose team, despite being exhausted, was still able to come up with one more gutsy effort in a 4-3 final-game loss to the Vancouver Mounties. Michael Kinanch hit an inside-thepark homer with two on base in the

second inning that gave the Chuckers a 3-1 lead. Niko Hill threw three shutout innings before being replaced, after which Vancouver rallied with three runs in the fifth inning for the win. Verde Rios attributed the success of the Chuckers to player commitment. “It was up to us as coaches to prepare them physically and mentally and they came through,” he said. “As we got closer to the provincials I tried to put them through a lot of fitness drills and practicing plays, and met with each of them individually to

help them prepare mentally, talking to them about their goals and roles for us to be successful. They all did that with 110 per cent effort. At this point it’s not about winning as much as it is about the memories. It was a good journey.” For two of the Chuckers, however, the 2012 season isn’t over quite yet. Both Kirk and Niyaz have been selected to Team B.C. which will play at the national championship Aug. 16 to 20 in Quebec City. The team is being managed by Richmond’s Serj Sangara.

Randall lifts B.C. to junior title

Discover Your Sport Day to be held Sunday, Aug. 26 The idea has been floating around in Jim Lamond’s head for some time. And now, figures the chair of Richmond Sports Council, is the perfect time for Richmond’s first-ever Discover Your Sport Day.

With the support of the city, Lamond is hoping the local minor sports organizations will join forces on Sunday, Aug. 26, allowing kids a chance to try out the various sports offered in the community.

“Just as children need to be taught to read and write, they also need to be taught how to run, jump and throw,” Lamond said. “And kids who have fun being active are more likely to stay active for life.”

Local pitcher prominent at junior fastpitch championship by Don Fennell Sports Editor With Richmond’s Jamie Randall standing particularly tall, Team BC scooped up the Canadian under-21 women’s fastpitch championship Friday night in Truro,

Nova Scotia. Randall, who the previous weekend helped lift Richmond Islanders to the provincial Junior A title at London Park, went 3-0 on the mound. In her first two victories she recorded 11 strikeouts and added four more in a

winning relief effort as Team BC edged Ontario Attack 5-4 in the title game. Yasmin Bains, also of Richmond and a teammate of Randall on the Islanders, was 1-for-1 in her only plate appearance in the final. She batted .200 over five games.

L A NDMA RK LIVING IN EVERY SENSE When architecture is expressed as an art form and is combined with revolutionary interior design, the result can only be described as a landmark. Wave in Central Surrey is that landmark. By incorporating expansive wrap-around outdoor spaces, incredibly efficient floorplans and moveable interior walls that adapt to how you want to live, Wave redefines contemporary urban living.

Making his second appearance at the Canadian summer nationals, Richmond’s Nicolaas Dekker set a Richmond Rapids Swim Club record in the 50-metre butterfly of 27.05 seconds.

Dekker, de Costa shine in national pool Excluding the Olympic team, the recent Canadian summer nationals featured the best in Canadian swimming. And a pair of Richmond Rapids stood out. Nicolaas Dekker and Brandon de Costa both set club records at the meet, with Dekker (in his second appearance at nationals) completing the 50-metre butterfly in 27.05 seconds and de Costa (making his national debut) the 100-metre backstroke in one minute, .98 seconds. “This was a great experience for these boys,” said Rapids’ head coach Robert Pettifer. “Swimming at this level is completely different from provincials meets and I expect this experience will be crucial to their development as national level athletes.” Two days after the meet, Dekker and de Costa joined 12 other Rapids (Kyle Bower, Paula Gosse, Michael JakacSinclair, Liam Kell, Patrick Kell, Jerry Liu, Morgan Mark, Nathan Muszynski, Serena Xue, Cathy Ye, Kevin Ye, and Tony Zeng) for the age-group nationals in Calgary.

Vancouver works with developers to create Downtown South

Revitalizing the Granville Loops The City of Vancouver has been working with developers such as Cressey Development to re-imagine the area around the Granville Street onramps into a thriving neighbourhood they call Downtown South. With plans for new roadways, biking and walking access to the Stanley Park SeaWall and False Creek waterfront and plenty of commercial space, the community will be the perfect place to purchase a home. “It’s all that Downtown South has to offer,” says Cressey Development Manager David Evans. “There’s entertainment, shopping, the beach, the Seawall ... It provides access to all the amenities.”

Cressey is proud to be a part of the area with Maddox, a 32-storey condominium tower located on Howe and Drake streets. The pedestrian-friendly aspect of the community is particularly important, Evans says. “One of its biggest strengths is access,” he says. With Granville Island, Yaletown and Robson Street within easy reach, buyers who purchase in the area will find everything they could possibly imagine close by. Future projects include a grocery store, the opportunity for vendors such as food carts and sidewalk extensions for outdoor cafes and restaurant patios.

evening at home, no matter what the weather is doing outside. The 10-foot ceilings in some homes add to the considerable sense of space that is inherent in the living areas, which offer plenty of room for entertaining. Lakewood prides itself on quality workmanship and attention to detail, and this is certainly apparent at One92.

There will be 69 homes in the project, ranging from 474 to 1,283 square feet. “There’s something for everybody,” says sales manager Rob Carlsen. “The response has been fantastic.” With features like nine or 10-foot ceilings (depending on where in the building your home is), a spacious walk-in shower in the ensuite and lush landscaping outside, Salix is a truly beautiful development. Many of the homes have views of Mount Baker or the surrounding Clayton Heights area. Building on the popularity of Woodbridge’s Willow Grand development, “we were able to listen to purchasers’ needs and wants,” says Carlsen. “It genuinely makes me excited that we covered a lot of the bases that purchasers were looking for.”

‘Something for everybody’

No trouble finding a home in Clayton Heights by Kerry Vital

Clayton Heights is a rapidly growing community on the border of Surrey and Langley. Due to its proximity to both cities as well as Cloverdale, it is perfectly situated to take advantage of every amenity that the Lower Mainland has to offer. Less than an hour from the Vancouver International Airport and less than half an hour from the U.S. border, Clayton Heights offers education, recreation, shopping and dining all within a few minutes. Woodbridge Homes’ La Rue La Rue is an intimate community of 49 two- to four-bedroom townhomes. With beautiful details like nine-foot ceilings on the main floor and stainlesssteel appliances, there is much to love at La Rue. With its tagline of “the street you want to live on”, La Rue is proving very popular with people of all demographics. “La Rue offers so many things,” says sales manager Andrea Castro. “I love this product.” The kitchens are particularly beautiful, with ceramic tile backsplashes and stone countertops that are perfectly complemented by the chic wood laminate flooring throughout the main living areas and entrances. Conveniently located close to several

schools, parks and recreation, Castro says that La Rue is great for young families. “Clayton offers so many things for families,” she says, adding “these are a different style of home. You’re close to everything, but you’re also quiet and away from all the busy-ness.” Lakewood’s One92 Lakewood has brought a collection of carriage homes, condominiums and townhomes to Clayton Heights, in a variety of floorplans. With 72 homes in the project, oversized windows, sleek laminate flooring and amazing open-plan kitchens are just some of the amazing features. A designer tile backsplash is complemented by the under-cabinet lighting and contemporary shaker-style cabinetry and gorgeous quartz countertops. A special feature of the homes is the electric fireplace with mood-adjustable accent lighting. It is perfect for curling up with a book or enjoying a romantic

Woodbridge Homes’ Salix Woodbridge continues with its mastery of the Clayton Heights area with Salix, a collection of one-, twoand three-bedroom condominiums. The open-plan layouts and three interior schemes (Craftsman Traditional, Casual Contemporary and Modern Chic) available at Salix make for a truly stunning mix of residences.

Clayton offers so many things for families,” says La Rue sales manager Andrea Castro.

Remembering you is easy. I do it everyday. It’s the heartache of losing you, That never goes away. I thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday, And the day before that too Your memory is my keepsake With which I will never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart. My heart still aches in sadness And secret tears will flow What it meant to lose you No one will ever know!

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Doug Lewis. Doug returned to the creator suddenly but quietly due to heart failure. Doug was born in Vancouver but raised in Cora Brown on Sea Island. As a young man he began to travel and these adventures spanned a good part of his adult life, travelling the world, playing tennis and modeling along the way. He was planning his next adventure at the time of his passing. He is now on the ultimate journey. He is survived by his son Riley, mother Joyce, sister Patricia (Dennis), brother Mike (Elizabeth), nieces Chelsea and Montana, nephews Dion and Kodi. Predeceased by his father, Robert Douglas Lewis.

EMPLOYMENT/EDUCATION

Marie Agatha Henriette Traynor (nee HinchcliffeLancaster), born 2 December 1920, passed away peacefully 6 August 2012, at the age of 92. She is predeceased by children R. Vincent Lilley, Cheryl Lee Paterson and granddaughter Courtney Paterson. Marie is survived by sister Perdita Mathieson (Eddie), children Deirdre Small (Harold), Robert (Leanne), James and many grandchildren. She lived a long and fulfilling life with her family and the pets she so loved - many dogs and birds among the favorites over the years. She loved her home and had a special eye for her antique collections. Whether halloween or a private party, Marie never lacked ideas or the creativity for that special costume that was always a smashing hit. Her generosity with family and friends was unsurpassed and she always had something to give. A celebration of her life for family and friends will take place at 2:00 pm, Friday, 17 August, 2012, at the Richmond Funeral Home. A special thank you goes out to the caregivers at the Minoru Residence. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in Marie's name to the BC SPCA.

Julia Olsen photos East Richmond Community Association is hosting Summer Fun Nights, a fournight event series that continues Aug. 14 and 21 at King George Park. There’s plenty of activities for children (left) and entertainment, including Eli Williams, aka Elvis, who wooed the crowd on July 31.

Kudos is a weekly feature showcasing announcements, achievements and good deeds happening around town. E-mail submissions to news@richmond review.com

Ofra Sixto, an early childhood educator, recently made a big move from having child care in her home to having it in school. Coun. Bill McNulty attended an open house for the facility at Richmond Jewish Day School on July 29. Amanda Oye phot Ken Kasick and Michael Jarman visited Volunteer Richmond’s fourth annual Summer Wellness, Health and More event, which took place last week at West Richmond Community Centre. The event is aimed to help seniors find the resources they need to live well.
