Olympians inspire youth Women’s soccer result raises interest in game by Don Fennell Sports Editor Dakota Chan can hardly wait to get back on the soccer pitch, an anxiousness only heightened following the bronze-medal victory by the Canadian women’s soccer team last Thursday at the London Olympics. The 12-year-old Richmond girl was among the estimated 300 fans who packed the arrivals area at Vancouver International Airport on Monday to welcome home several members of the squad including captain Christine Sinclair, chosen as Canada’s ﬂag bearer for Sunday’s closing ceremonies after her electrifying three-goal effort nearly powered the Canucks past the vaunted Americans (who won gold). “It was such a big accomplishment and I was very excited for them,” said Chan. “I really wanted to support them when they came home. I knew lots of other people really wanted to cheer them on too, but (the size of the crowd) surprised me a bit.” Chan believed in the team even when others weren’t so sure. “I saw them training and they were always trying their hardest,” she said. “I thought they were going to do well even before the Olympics began. I think they did better because of their new coach (John Herdman) who brought them conﬁdence they might not have had before.”
Chan, who began playing soccer at the age of four, has herself long dreamt of playing for Canada at the Olympics and hopes this success will inspire all other girls in Canada to want to play a sport and have similar goals. “After watching Canada win bronze I’m so much more determined to try my hardest at every practice and every game, while trying to do the best I can and be a role model for everyone around me,” said Chan, who credits coaches Doug Long, Ray Pang and Clive Clarke for helping hone her soccer skills and love of the game. Opportunity is knocking thanks to the success of the Canadian women’s soccer team, which earned the ﬁrst Olympic medal by Canada in a traditional summer team sport since 1936. But B.C. Soccer Association president Roger Barnes said it’s up to the various levels of soccer to open the door. “Just because there’s a knock doesn’t mean you get the response,” he said of the anticipated spike in soccer registration. “It’s up to the national, provincial or local groups to see this is a good opportunity to get more involvement in their sport. The (potential) growth at the grassroots will come from the local clubs by making sure they have good facilities, training and development and coaching.” Barnes said there is already a strong base of female soccer players in B.C., representing nearly half of the more than 100,000 youth and adult soccer players in the province.

EVERYTHING, ALL IN ONE PLACE...
Martin van den Hemel photo Teammates Sophie Schmidt, Karina LeBlanc, Christine Sinclair and Emily Zurrer are all smiles as they ﬂash their bronze medals from the 2012 London Olympics, where the Canadian’s women’s soccer team earned bronze, but captured the nation’s hearts during a thrilling and controversy-ﬁlled 4-3 semi-ﬁnal loss to eventual gold medalist U.S.A.
Fans cheer returning Olympians by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Waving signs praising their Olympic heroes, hundreds of people packed the international arrivals area at Vancouver International Airport Monday to greet Canada’s returning Olympians. Olympic team closing ceremony ﬂag bearer Christine Sinclair from Burnaby and members of the bronze medal winning Canadian women’s soccer team— including Sophie Schmidt, Karina LeBlanc, and Emily Zurrer—were among those who landed at YVR Monday morning to be greeted by cheers from adoring fans, many of whom waved Canadian ﬂags or hand-crafted post-
ers, sported their patriotic colours, or carried their soccer cleats or wore Whitecaps soccer jerseys. As the crowd grew and anticipation built for the arrival of the Olympians, fans spontaneously broke out into patriotic song to while the time away, singing O Canada on a couple of occasions. Among those who couldn’t help but smile was Richmond’s Andre Ho, who competed in the table tennis competition, and was among the ﬁrst wave of athletes to exit the restricted arrivals door. Christine Girard, the bronze-medal winning weightlifter, also drew a loud cheer, and was greeted by dozens
upon dozens of media members, including TV camera crews and radio reporters. But it was the arrival of the Canadian women’s soccer team, which earned a bronze medal, that drew the loudest cheers, with Sinclair drawing the greatest applause. She was moved to tears as she was joined by goaltender Karina LeBlanc—who was also overcome with emotion as she greeted her parents. Also arriving were Surrey’s marathon swimmer Richard Weinberger, who won a bronze medal, and Krista Guloien, a teammate of Richmond’s Darcy Marquardt’s on the silver-medal winning women’s eights rowing team. •More photos at richmondreview.

Maritime Festival attracts 35,000 Festival continues to grow as ninth annual affair another success
by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The ninth annual Richmond Maritime Festival was a resounding success, drawing the largest ever crowd that totalled an estimated 35,000 over the weekend. “We were really delighted with the turnout,” City of Richmond spokesperson Ted Townsend said. Asked what made this year’s event
so popular, Townsend said the event continues to grow each year, and that’s drawn increased corporate sponsorship, and with that, the event continues to grow. And with next year’s event slated to be its 10th anniversary, Townsend said things are lining up for an even bigger and better event. “There were lots of happy people, smiles on faces,” Townsend said, adding that the costumed performers wan-
dering throughout the site at Britannia Heritage Shipyard and interacting with visitors had people in stitches. Saturday proved to be the busiest day, with a quieter Sunday that Townsend joked was partly to blame on London and the 2012 Olympic Summer Games closing ceremonies. The presence of the Japanese tall ship Kaisei certainly helped raise the proﬁle of the event, with the ship’s research efforts into the Great Paciﬁc Garbage
Patch drawing plenty of media coverage, Townsend said. “We look forward to seeing everybody next year,” he said. He’s hopeful that more high-proﬁle, anchor vessels will attend next year, and said that after a presentation to Richmond council, organizers will have a better idea of where to steer the event. But for now, it appears it will continue to grow.
Man dies following domestic dispute Partner in custody after 38-year-old killed by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A man is dead and his female partner is in police custody following a domestic dispute on Ackroyd Road early Tuesday morning. Integrated Homicide Investigation Team spokesperson Sgt. Jennifer Pound said Richmond Mounties received a 911 call around 12:35 a.m. about a man who had been injured in the 8700 block of Ackroyd Road. When they arrived, police found an unresponsive man who appeared to be suffering from wounds consistent with an edged weapon. Both Richmond Fire-Rescue and B.C. Ambulance also attended the scene, but their attempts to revive the man were
not successful. The victim, 38, was pronounced dead at the scene, Pound said. While the man’s cause of death will need to be conﬁrmed by an autopsy, Pound said that it appears he met with foul play, and that’s why the homicide team is taking over the ﬁle. The man’s 35-year-old partner, who is believe to be his wife, has been arrested. There was a third adult in the home at the time of the incident, believed to be a visitor, Pound said. “This death appears to be in connection to a domestic incident,” Pound said. “The details surrounding the incident are unclear at this point. Investigators will be working throughout the day to narrow in on a motive and obtain details on the events leading up to this homicide.” Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 1-877551-4448, or to remain anonymous call 1-800-222-8477. The 8700 block of Ackroyd comprises mainly three-storey condominium buildings and is located near Westminster Highway and Garden City Road.

Body armour, weapon get man arrested by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A Richmond man who is the subject of a no-contact order with his former domestic partner, has now been charged with unauthorized possession of a ﬁrearm and possessing body armour without a permit. Steven Douglas Harrison made his ﬁrst appearance in Richmond provincial court on Tuesday morning. The latest charges stem from a police search of Harrison’s Richmond home,
after his former partner obtained a no-contact order last May, which allowed the police to attend his home and search it. RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger said a search uncovered body armour the accused wasn’t licenced to have, along with a weapon he was also prohibited from having. Harrison was involved in a domestic dispute with his partner in Richmond, back in 2010, Grainger said. She then moved to Surrey, where she now resides, and he’s alleged to have breached his no-contact order.

Soccer looks to build on success From Page 1 He said the challenge now is to ensure young girls captivated by the Olympics have a positive and fun experience when they’re introduced to youth soccer, and then get quality coaching and the opportunity to learn more skills that will keep them involved in the sport. “We have a lot players who get to Grade 12 and then don’t continue and that’s something we’re going to have to make a focus,” he said. “We have to make sure those 17- and 18-yearolds have that ready chance to move up. And for the ones who aspire to play at the high-performance level, we need to be able to help them move into that stream.” The success of the Canadian women’s soccer team in London also comes an opportune time, with Canada set to host the next World Cup here in 2015. And unlike the 1980s during which the Canadian men’s soccer team qualiﬁed for the 1986 World Cup, there is the presence of a strong professional league in the form of Major League Soccer and a solid and well-organized team in the market in the Vancouver Whitecaps. “Media interest is centered around high-proﬁle sport and that is in place,” said Barnes. “The national team program, particularly the women’s side, is competitive as we saw at the Olym-
Richmond Review · Page 7 pics and the men’s program, while facing a tough challenge being in the same group as the U.S. and Mexico, will be energized by the success the women have had.” But to ensure the Canadian program remains competitive, there needs to be a steady inﬂux of young prospects anxious and ready to take their place on the national teams. Richmond’s own Summer Clarke, 17, is such a player. Committed to the sport, Clarke (whose older brother Caleb signed his ﬁrst pro contract earlier this year with the Whitecaps) scored six goals in three games to lead all players at the recent FIFA under-17 World Cup qualifying tournament in Guatemala. Clarke leaves today for Ontario where she’ll join her teammates for a nineday camp in preparation for the World Cup (held every two teams) Sept. 22 to Oct. 13 in Azerbaijan. “(The success of the Canadian women’s soccer team) has really inspired my teammates and I to follow in their footsteps and to do our best to get a medal as well,” she said. “I had watched them practice and play a few times during training and thought they looked good and had a chance at getting a medal. It was good to see them passing the ball around and trying to build up the play, instead of the kick-and-run we were used to seeing Canada play. I was proud of how conﬁdent they were and how they just kept improving with each game they played.”
Clarke expects more people will watch and support women’s soccer, and soccer in general, as a result of the Olympic success and hopes more media coverage of all levels of soccer will inspire more youth to make soccer their game. “I also think many young girls will be inﬂuenced by the fact Christine Sinclair (of Burnaby) did so well and grew up and played locally,” she said. “They will want to be like her.” As for herself, Clarke said she is “just going to go out and work hard and try to improve in all areas of the game to increase her chances of being successful and to continue to grow as a player.” “We still have a long ways to go,” said Stewart MacPherson, executive director of the Richmond Girls’ Soccer Association. “But I think this will inspire kids to look at what can happen. You can’t get any (bigger) world stage than (the Olympics). Every Canadian kid can see we can compete with the best team (U.S.) in the world and should have won (the semiﬁnal) against them.” Longtime Richmond soccer coach Doug Long deemed the performance by the Canadian women as “spectacular” and said the energy and proﬁle created by the performance will boost youth soccer in Canada. “While the performance transcends gender, there are some obvious role models for girls and young women,” said Long, who chairs the Richmond Youth Soccer Association.

EDITORIAL: Sentence of Mountie must be appealed
he sentence handed down to former Richmond RCMP Cpl. Benjamin (Monty) Robinson is a disgrace. It leaves the justice system in ill repute. Everyone involved in this obstruction of justice case should do all they can to see that the sentence is changed to more properly ﬁt the crime, and the criminal. Robinson was the ofﬁcer in charge of a four-man RCMP squad who Tasered Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski to death at the Vancouver Airport in October, 2007. One year later, in October, 2008, he was at a party in South Delta. He left and, while driving home, struck and killed a 21-year-old motorcyclist, Orion Hutchinson. Robinson had his children in the car and immediately left the scene of the crash with them. He went home, downed several shots of vodka, and then returned to the scene. He was charged and eventually convicted of obstruction of justice because he made it impossible for Delta Police to collect evidence regarding impaired driving. He never pleaded guilty, but stretched the case out all the way. At his trial in February, court was told he
had previously told friends how to beat an impaired driving charge. Robinson still faces a charge of perjury over his testimony to the Braidwood Commission, established following the Dziekanski death. On Friday, July 27, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Janice Dillon sentenced Robinson to a 12-month
conditional sentence on the obstruction of justice charge. One month is to be served under house arrest. He received no jail time. Robinson did not resign from the RCMP until July 20, the day his sentencing hearing began. He will receive an RCMP pension, recognizing all his years in the force, including the past four years, where he
has been paid while not working. Dillon’s sentence completely glossed over the fact that Robinson was an RCMP ofﬁcer. As such, any conviction on an obstruction of justice charge is far more serious than in other circumstances. She also said he deserved a lighter sentence because he is of native
extraction, a statement that has drawn scorn from numerous aboriginal leaders. The sentence must be appealed. It cannot be allowed to stand, if we truly believe that police must be held to a higher standard than other citizens when they are convicted of breaking the law. —Langley Times

Life Lessons Andrea Phillpotts
“Make your bed,” I said to one of my kids recently. Sheets were snarled in bunches and crummy dishes lined the floor. Clothes were strewn everywhere from floor to door frame and the accumulated junk of a preteen poked out though all remaining space. It was a disaster. “You’re not allowed to leave the house until this is dealt with,” I said through gritted teeth. Half an hour later, I checked in on the bedroom. My kid was sprawled across the bed playing with her iPod but the room was still a disaster. When I starting up my screaming again, my daughter looked at me with innocent
eyes and replied, “You wanted me to make the bed, right? I did that.” When I looked again, indeed, inside the maelstrom of clothes, dishes, and stuff was a smooth bed. I then recited a total inventory about what constituted a clean room and how she should look around and anticipate what other jobs need to be done. After much eye rolling on her behalf and lecturing on mine, the room finally got clean. It was only much later that day it occurred to me that what we were dealing with was not just a messy room but a full blown generational gap. It’s true that she had completed her assigned task but I was expect-
ing her to go beyond the expected. I’d had this discussion with friends my same age recently after one had been bellyaching about young colleagues who walked out the door at precisely five o’clock every day and turned off their work cell phones for the entire weekend. While we were not married to the job as our parents’ generation was, we had a significant work ethic, not only completing the job at hand but looking out for what else needed doing. Studies have confirmed this gap in employment expectations and recommend that both generations be very clear about what a completed job entails. In other words,
instead of saying “clean this room,” I should create a concrete list about what needs to be done to clean a room and at what time it should be completed. Hopefully, this new communication style will reduce some of the conflict in our household. What started as a bedroom from hell might end up with some heavenly understanding. A perfectly clean bedroom? Well, I won’t hold my breath. Andrea Phillpotts is a Richmond writer and teacher.

Parking is ridiculous Editor: Welcome to Steveston. Recently at the Richmond Maritime Festival I was in shocked to discover an individual who had parked outside the lines by Rod’s Building Supplies in Steveston and received a ticket for said infraction. These lines should not even exist. If there is space then you should be able to park. Parking in Steveston is ridiculous in the summer and these kinds of rules make it even worse. There were others who also received tickets for the same infraction that probably started when a motorcycle or smart car started the whole chain of events. What next? Are we going to start expelling children from school for colouring outside the lines? Give your head a shake Richmond and start welcoming money spending individuals to our city so that local merchants can continue to ﬂourish and provide jobs and needed services to our city.

in the ocean is a huge problem (“Plastic problem plagues Paciﬁc,” Friday). As your article explained, humans produce hundreds of tonnes of plastic each year, and less than ﬁve per cent of it is recycled. Much of it ends up in the ocean, where huge plastic “islands” accumulate. The sun’s rays and the ocean’s turbulence break this plastic down to microscopic size, where it’s ingested by marine life and enters the food chain. Plastic is made from
petroleum, a carcinogen. It doesn’t take a PhD to realize what’s happening: We’re poisoning ourselves, and the rest of our planet, for temporary convenience. How can we be this far into the 21st century and still walk into a store and buy things packaged in unrecyclable plastic? Manufacturers aren’t even required to show recycling numbers to indicate the kinds of plastics they use. Nor must they use only plastics that can be locally recycled. My sister in Toronto can put all numbered plastics in
her blue box, but here in Richmond, if it says 3, 6, 7, or higher, it goes in the garbage. Everyone knows someone who’s suffered or died from cancer—and despite all the advancements of medical science, it continues to increase. Why is everyone so bafﬂed? We’re doing this to ourselves. It doesn’t matter how “intelligent” we think we are. If we don’t stop being so mindlessly destructive, we’ll never be anything more than a virus on our planet. Andy Fielding Richmond

The item that should be in any student’s closet is a pair of jeans. Denim pants have become so ubiquitous on- and off-campus that entire wardrobes can be built around them. For girls, skinny jeans are still very much in style and are verging on classic status. Jeggings are also popular with their combination of a skinny fit and soft, flexible material. For boys, it’s all about straight leg jeans or a slim cut. Coloured denim is hot for all

a new semester also means making a lot of first impressions — on teachers and fellow students. Sweatpants may be comfortable but it’s just as easy to throw on some jeans. Whether the student is in elementary school, high school or college, incorporating colour and prints into the school wardrobe will help brighten up dreary fall days. Neon’s been big this year and is surprising easy to wear in small
DKNY and Stella McCartney. Most contemporary fashion stores have a kids’ line so shopping for younger ones is made simpler at all price points.

ages but can limit outfit options. To get the most use out of a pair of jeans, go for a darker rinse — they go well with everything and can even be worn to dressier events. For an alternative to jeans, try corduroy pants. Stores usually carry a wide assortment of fun fall colours; it’s also durable and perfect for active kids. Sweaters are another staple for back-to-school. Whether it’s a simple crew neck or a cardigan, there’s a sweater for every style and it makes a great layering piece for chilly classrooms. Try patterns such as stripes or argyle to add some panache to casual outfits. This is when tees come in handy for the cooler months. Wear them under itchy wool sweaters or pair a graphic tee with a cardigan or hoodie. Stores try to get rid of their short-sleeved tops in August to make space for fall items, so this is the perfect time to load up on T-shirts and tanks while they’re on sale. For students starting post-secondary, the preppy collegiate look never goes out of style. Try pairing casual pants or jeans with blazers over a tee for a more polished look. For girls, finish off the outfit with flats or even boots if the weather is cool. The guys can complete their blazer ensemble with sneakers such as Chucks or Vans. I know fashion may fall to the wayside when you’re dealing with exams and getting to class on time, but starting
doses. Include a splash of highlighter pink or DayGlo yellow to an otherwise neutral outfit. Accessories and sneakers are a simple and great way to add some bright colours and individualize your look. Tangerine was the “It” colour of spring and summer, but for the fall the trend is blue — especially cobalt. Much easier to wear than tangerine, pair blue with black if you want to channel runway looks. The black and blue combo was spotted in a number of designer collections such as

Man injured after fall during Canada Line construction on Sea Island by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A ďŹ re truck salesman has been awarded $680,000 in damages after he fell in the gap between two metal plates on the roadway as he was walking towards a shuttle bus at the Vancouver International Airport in December of 2006. John Witt was heading for the
long-term parking lot, where his vehicle was parked, when he stepped in the gap between metal plates placed on the roadway as construction proceeded on the Canada Line at the airport. Named as defendants in the lawsuit were the Vancouver International Airport, SNC-Lavalin Inc, the prime contractor of the Canada Line, and Tyam Construction Ltd., the subcontractor responsible for the relocation of the underground utilities. The B.C. Supreme Court awarded Witt $680,000 because his injuriesâ€”to his hips, legs and kneesâ€” may force him to retire a couple of years early. According to the court ruling, Witt earned on average about $740,000 per year between 2004 and 2010.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Grant D. Burnyeat found that Witt was â€œexercising reasonable care for his own safety as he walked towards the back of the bus. I ďŹ nd that the negligence of the defendants was the only cause of the fall.â€? â€œI conclude that the earning capacity of Mr. Witt has been reduced even though is incomve is geater than what it was before the fall. Given the uncontradicted medical evidence, I think the only reasonable conclusion is that Mr. Witt was rendered less capable from earning income from all types of employment, unable to take advantage of all potential sales previously open to his company, less valuable to himself and to his company, and less capable of earning income in a competitive market,â€? Burnyeat wrote.

WINQUIST, MAXINE (nee Agnew) BC CANCER
Unexpectedly passed away in an automobile accident on June 30, 2012 at the age of 87 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her three children: Anne (Donald) of Sherwood Park, AB, Allan of Calgary, AB, Karen (Rob) of Richmond, BC and eight grandchildren; Robert, Michael, Gina, Luke, Tyler, Joey, Kayla and Alyssa. Sadly predeceased by her husband, David, infant granddaughter, Karen and brothers; Wayne and Tommy Agnew. Maxine was on her way to her hometown of Penticton, BC to join her family for their annual holiday. For the past ten years this time together was always eagerly anticipated and enjoyed by all who attended. This vacation was especially meaningful to Maxine as she loved to spend time with her children and grandchildren at the place where her family of origin had such a deep history and heritage. A graveside service on August 20, 2012 at 11:00 am will permanently return Maxine to her roots as she will be buried with her parents at the Lakeview Cemetery in Penticton as was her wish.

“SPEEDY” NEEDS A GOOD HOME WITH YOU!
“SPEEDY”, ID # 273814, ROBOROVSKI HAMSTER, MALE, 1 MONTH 3 WEEKS Speedy is a very adorable baby Roborovski (Russian Dwarf) hamster. His care and behaviour differs from that of a Syrian (Teddy Bear) hamster, so it is recommended that research be done before committing to adopting him. “Robos,” as they are affectionately called, need to burrow, chew, and hide. They should also have fresh fruits and veggies available, in addition to their regular seeds. An aquarium would make a safe, escape-proof habitat, as cages with bars are no match for these teeny rodents! Unlike Syrian hamsters, Robos can live with other dwarf hamsters, so if you are looking for a buddy, perhaps Speedy would learn to have a new friend! He is a bit shy, and very, very fast, so a parent would be best to handle him until he is used to his new “people”. As hamsters are nocturnal creatures, Speedy should be kept in a quiet room where his slumber will not be disturbed during the day.
