Massage therapist charged after four year investigation Gordon Hall facing two counts of sexual assault by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A Richmond massage therapist is facing two counts of sexual assault involving allegations that date back to 2008. Gordon Hall was working as a registered massage therapist at Minoru Massage Therapy Clinic at the Minoru Aquatic Centre back in 2008, when one of his alleged victims first contacted The Richmond Review. The woman, who is in her 20s and asked that her name not be published, said in November 2008 that she and her girlfriend wanted to come forward with their stories in hopes that other people Hall may have victimized will contact police. Both she and her friend filed complaints with the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia. But The Review was unable to confirm there was an investigation, as neither the college nor the RCMP were commenting. And it wasn’t until this week that charges were officially sworn after being approved by the Crown. Reached on Tuesday, the GORDON HALL woman said she was contacted last year by a private investigator hired by the College of Massage Therapists, after a “number of women came forward” to make complaints to the college. “It’s something always in the back of my mind,” she said. She said she’s been subpoenaed to testify. The college turned the file over to the Richmond RCMP for a criminal investigation, and investigators then contacted the alleged victims to see if they’d be willing to make a police statement, she said. According to court records, Hall is now charged with a Jan. 1, 2008 sexual assault, and another on Nov. 1, 2008. The charges have not been proven in a court of law, and Hall is scheduled to make his first appearance in Richmond provincial court on Oct. 25. See Page 3

Richmond’s Marnie Odette checks out her new PNE prize home.

Richmond resident wins PNE prize home by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Richmond resident Marnie Odette had a one in 119,365 chance of winning it big—and Thursday was her lucky day. Pacific National Exhibition officials drew the 39-year-old’s ticket and awarded her the 2012 PNE prize home. The annual Vancouver fair’s grand prize has a value of $1.3 million. The 3,000-square-foot home—built by Brit-

co Structures with a fully outfitted interior designed by former TV Bachelorette Jillian Harris —will be moved to a mountain site at Sun Peaks Resort. After her name was drawn on the Global BC News Hour at 6:30 p.m., a surprised Odette was contacted by phone. A limousine was dispatched and it whisked Odette away from her Richmond house to tour her prize. She told reporters she’s not yet sure what she’ll do with the house.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom house features a ski-in-ski-out sports room with direct access to the Sun Peaks slopes, multiple fireplaces, 20-foot vaulted ceilings, gourmet kitchen and walk-in wine cellar. Outside, the home boasts a hot tub and an outdoor fireplace. As winner, Odette also receives a $2,500 grocery package from MarketPlace IGA and a year’s worth of MiniMaid housecleaning services.

City urged to crack down on canine cruelty Janet Olson and Ban Resident Dogs targets Richmond in fight against negligent dog owners

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter An animal rights group is urging city council to crack down on dog owners who chain, tether or otherwise cruelly confine their pets outdoors. “It’s incredibly cruel, physically, emotionally,” said Janet Olson, spokesperson for Ban Resident Dogs. “Dogs are social animals who we bred specifically for the purpose of wanting to be with us, to be our companions.” The group is asking for a ban on the chaining of dogs in backyards—or otherwise confining them to a pen. Olson and two other representatives pitched the

idea to city council’s community safety committee Tuesday, using a graphic photo and video presentation to get their point across. It’s already convinced Surrey to draft legislation, and Olson said her group will make the same request of all other Metro Vancouver municipalities. Olson, a White Rock resident, has firsthand experience with dogs that have suffered on chains and in pens. She’s among six people charged in a rash of dog thefts throughout Metro Vancouver. Olson, who is scheduled to appear in court next April, said the charges involve dogs that were penned, chained, starving, beaten or denied veterinarian care.

She faces 36 charges ranging from theft and fraud to breakand-enter in connection with alleged offences across the Lower Mainland—including Richmond—dating back to 2006. The allegations have not been proven in court. Olson said chained and confined dogs can’t be seized under existing legislation unless the animals are close to death. “We are obligated to defy laws that are creating suffering in a living creature that cannot help itself. Any rights that have been sought in this world…people have fought and have had to break the law to do so because A group called Ban Resident Dogs showed civic politicians a slideshow of confined cathe laws were unjust.” nines Tuesday.

Smokey blaze at TSC Nursery Airline bans ‘unsustainably sourced’ shark products from its flights

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter “We have competitors. I wouldn’t say we have any enemies,” TSC Nursery’s manager Craig Adams told Richmond Fire-Rescue investigators over the phone Monday morning. Just a few dozen metres away, the molten remains of a Saturday night nursery blaze at No. 8 Road and Westminster Highway resembled an extra-terrestrial landscape. Stacks of hundreds of plastic plant pots toppled over as they melted under the intense heat from the fire, and then just as quickly cooled in place, like a volcano’s oozing magma when it meets an ocean. In this case, it was the water from Richmond FireRescue that doused the flames, which sent thick black smoke billowing into the early evening sky Saturday and drifted for miles to the northwest over Vancouver. Saturday’s fire was confined to a single greenhouse/ production area and a post-and-beam shed, Adams said. If not for the quick actions of Richmond Fire-Rescue and alert neighbours who called 911, and had the wind been blowing in a different direction, Adams said: “It could have been tragic, but we got very lucky.” It was almost business as usual on Monday, with only one section of the massive nursery affected. There are more than 100 greenhouses at TSC. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and Adams said the damage will likely top $100,000. There were no injuries, though it nearly caused a

Activists say Cathay Pacific imported 650 tonnes of shark fin to Hong Kong in 2011 by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter The blaze only impacted a small section of the nursery.

heart attack dozens of miles away. W & A Farms owners Bill Zylmans and his wife Sandra were out boating with friends in the middle of the Fraser River when they first spotted the smoke. Soon, one of their friends joked it was the Zylmans’ farm. Moments later, one of their employees called, fearing that the fire was at their farm. Then another call came in, from a neighbour saying there was a fire behind their barn. “Anxious moments, to say the least,” Zylmans said. “And here I was, totally locked in the water.” From the vantage point of King George Park, the nursery smoke looked like an ominous approaching storm cloud as it stretched across the horizon from south to north. An electrical crew was already at the scene Monday morning beginning repair work.

The movement toward the banning of shark fin has reached the skies, as the world’s largest carrier of air cargo announced it will stop shipping unsustainably sourced shark products. Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific said in a statement it now has “compelling evidence” that the majority of shark fishing isn’t sustainable. “Due to the vulnerable nature of sharks, their rapidly declining population, and the impacts of overfishing for their parts and products, our carriage of these is inconsistent with our commitment to sustainable development,” according to the statement. The airline made the announce-

ment Sept. 4. It’s policy change is effective immediately, but the airline estimated it will take three months to make the transition. Cathay’s decision came after the airline received a July 23 letter from 41 international environmental organizations—including B.C.’s Shark Truth—urging it to stop carrying shark fin. The alliance, citing Hong Kong government data, said 10,200 tonnes of shark fin were imported into Hong Kong in 2011, with Cathay Pacific air cargo responsible for 650 of those tonnes. The City of Richmond is currently mulling a ban on shark fin. Other cities, including Toronto, have already enacted bylaws that outlaw the product, which animal activists say is cruelly harvested and has put many species at risk of extinction.

Therapist had been barred from seeing female patients From Page 1 When she first spoke with The Review, the woman who wished to remain anonymous was visibly shaken and expressed that she felt violated, but also thought she’d done something wrong. She’d first turned to Hall to deal with a car accident injury, she said in 2008. An anonymous message left with The Richmond Review last weekend noted the allegations against Hall. ”Gordon Hall has a history of disciplinary actions against him by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia for sexual touching and sexually inappropriate behaviour with patients. After completing the sanctions required of him, which included 12 mandated counselling sessions and a 60-day suspension, he was given back his licence to treat patients. Shortly after, he began to sexually abuse and assault another patient at the Minoru Massage Therapy Clinic at the Minoru Aquatic Centre,” the person said, seemingly reading from a written statement. According to the college’s website (www.

cmtbc.bc.ca), Hall was prohibited from providing massage therapy services to female patients pending an investigation of a complaint made to the college by a former patient on Feb. 16, 2011. “The committee determined this prohibition was necessary to protect the public,” the college said on its website. When asked why the college didn’t proactively release information about Hall beyond its website, Joelle Berry, director of compliance for the college, said the college is currently reviewing its practices relating the rights of privacy of its members and the best interests of the public. “The college is bound by the confines of the Health Professions Act,” she said. She said the information about actions taken against him were posted promptly on the college’s website. Susan Addario, registrar for the college, said the college thought placing a restriction against Hall was enough to protect the public. But when asked how the college could be sure Hall was complying with the restriction, Addario said the college collects information from the

public, patients and other registered therapists. Accessing the college’s website is the “normal way” the public can learn about a health professional when seeking one out. Under the college’s Inquiry and Discipline Notices, the college’s website says a former patient of Hall alleged that on June 12, 2008, he “failed to respect patient/therapist boundaries in his verbal and physical conduct, with the result that his patient perceived that he made contact with her person for sexual rather than therapeutic purposes.” Hall admitted to professional misconduct, and agreed to a 60-day suspension, and was fined $5,000, with a portion of that fine paying for the counselling for the former patient. He also underwent 12 counselling sessions with a psychologist, the website says. According to an ad posted in The Steveston Villager Community & Newsletter in January of 2011, Hall announced he was opening a new clinic in West Richmond, “in the heart of historic Steveston, after 16 years of practice as a Registered Massage Therapist in and around

Richmond, British Columbia.” His office, West Richmond Massage Therapy & Rehab Clinic, is located at 268-3580 Moncton St. and offers “massage therapy and rehab treatments, to help promote optimal health and well being.” Rhianna Featherstone, a registered massage therapist at West Richmond Massage, said that although Hall still owns the clinic, she’s been the sole provider of massage therapy services there for about a year. She was hired in April 2011 to serve as a locum at the clinic, because Hall was being investigated by the college, and they had placed a restriction on him that barred him from treating women. “He considers himself innocent of the charges,” said Featherstone, who added that she’s worried her practice will suffer because of the clinic’s association to Hall and the sexual assault allegations. “I’ve worked really hard to build up the practice,” she said. According to Featherstone, Hall did not renew his licence last December.

Richmond Mounties are on the hunt from a group of dog-nappers, who scooped up a pair of pricey Pomeranian puppies in front of 10028 Granville Ave. on Monday morning. According to the RCMP, at around 10:30 a.m., a champagne-coloured Honda CRV with five people in it, pulled up in front of a home at 10028 Granville Ave., and picked up the puppies. Police said the pair of two-month-old pupplies may have escaped from their yard, taking advantage of their small size. The suspect vehicle was last seen eastbound on Granville. Police patrols of the area failed to turn up anything. The pupplies, valued at $2,000 each, are just two months old, and go by the names of Mi-Mi for the female, and Dar-Dar for the male. Anyone with information about the dog-napping is asked to call RCMP Const. Julie Hearty at 604-2781212. —Martin van den Hemel

‘Opportunity lost’ in failed Summer Games bid Community left behind with focus on highperformance sport, councillors say by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Richmond City Hall is increasingly focusing on high-performance sport—at the expense of offering opportunities to young people, says a longtime city councillor. “This cradle to podium concept is wonderful, but if all you have is the podium to show off at the oval, what happens to everybody in the middle?” said Coun. Evelina Halsey-Brandt yesterday. “What’s happening now is we’re losing the community aspect.” Halsey-Brandt was one of four councillors who backed a proposed Rich-

mond bid for the B.C. Summer Games, which was quashed in a 5-4 council vote at a special meeting Sept. 4. The seven-term councillor said she supported the Richmond Olympic Oval because of a promise to allow young people to be inspired while training alongside elite athletes. The B.C. Summer Games offered teenagers across the province a stage of their own—just as the Olympics and major tournaments have afforded elite athletes. “We need to support the ability of our elite athletes to have a place to practice, to train, to perform and to show off, but also, we need to do that for our young people who aren’t there, but who can be inspired by it and be proud of what they do.” The Richmond Sports Council also backed the bid, along with Couns.

Hosting the games would have required a $367,000 commitment from the city, according to Jacques’ report. Surrey was last to host the Games, staged every two years.

Landlords, tenants to be offered lesson in renting Workshop to improve rent relationships and serve as basis for new rental registry by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter An owner of a singlefamily home watched with disbelief when his basement tenant of three weeks invited three friends over. They brought furniture. But without a rental agreement—or a communication plan—the landlord couldn’t stop his one tenant from becoming four. In rental relationships, landlords aren’t squeaky clean either, especially those who wander their occupied rental suites on a whim. “There’s a lack of information on both sides,

and a lack of communication plans on both sides too,” said De Whalen, chair of the Richmond Poverty Response Committee. Next week, the committee will host a free workshop aimed at improving landlord-tenant relations. The workshop—facilitated by former Residential Tenancy Branch employees—is part of the committee’s pilot project Richmond Rental Connect, which is focused on matching owners of secondary suites with tenants in need of safe, affordable housing. Earlier discussion groups with tenants, landlords and homeowners uncovered a need for the workshop, which will offer communication advice, explain rental agreements and the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants. “They get into this legal relationship between two parties and they

don’t have the backing to know how to solve some of those problems,” said Whalen of landlords. “You’re inviting people into your house, so we realize that communication, problem solving, learning how to feel safe and trusting each other, was really key to the success of the whole project.” The workshop comes in advance of a forthcoming housing registry on the Richmond Rental Connect website. Tenants and landlords who wish to be included in the registry must participate in a workshop— giving the database something more than online listings. “This is different because we’re asking everybody to come to the workshop—landlords and tenants—to learn about respectful relationships, communicating with each other, the rights and responsibilities, the rules and the forms that you need, so

that everybody’s on the same page,” said Whalen. Richmond has approximately 2,000 secondary suites, but not all are being rented, said Whalen. “We feel there’s a lot of unused space out there,” she said. “It’s a fast and easy way to increase the rental stock.” The workshop is Tuesday, Sept. 18 at South Arm United Church (11051 Steveston Hwy.) from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Attendees are asked to register by Sept. 16 by e-mailing info@richmondrentalconnect.ca or by calling 604-205-4700.

Editor: During the last few weeks, the anti-shark fin activists are stirring up the debate  to ban shark fin soup. They are targeting the City of Richmond because of itshigh number of Chinese restaurants and Chinese restaurant patrons. To seek a ban of shark fin soup is an infringement on my personal right as a Canadian to chose a food item that I can or cannot consume when they are not considered illegal by the Canadian government. I can sympathize with the claims by the anti-shark fin activists, showing us the sharks that are caught illegally and the wasteful method of finning the sharks. Like them, I will not consume shark fins that are either illegally caught or derived from finning. When I consume shark fin soup in a local restaurant, I expect that the sharks were harvested legally.  If they are not, it is up to the authorities to ensure that illegally harvested shark fins do not enter Canada. The issue is not about the right to consume shark fin soup, but the issue is about how to stop the illegal harvesting of sharks and their killing methods. The governing  bodies

should step up their enforcement to ensure that shark fin products are derived from legal harvesting. To seek an outright ban on the consumption of shark fin soup, hoping that  the reduced demand will stop illegal harvesting is not addressing the issue. Just because nearly all the anti-shark fin activists are non-Chinese and do not appreciate the cultural heritage of the food does not give them a right to call for an outright ban.  Please respect my right to consume shark fin soup as long as they are caught legally.  To those anti-shark fin activists, please focus your effort to pressure the  enforcement authorities to stop the import of illegal shark fin harvest and restaurant that knowingly serves illegally harvested shark fin products should be prosecuted. But please respect my right to choose what I like for dinner tonight—a delightful bowl of shark fin’s soup, harvested legally and imported into Canada legally.   It taste better  with some red rice vinegar and a pinch of pepper. Bon appetit!

Editor: To its credit, our city council has a number of advisory committees that provide it with very valuable input in making Richmond a better place to live. Richmond Intercultural Advisory Committee is one such committee. Established more than 10 years ago, the committee has been doing a commendable job in promoting intercultural harmony in this community. As part of its ongoing initiatives in this regard, the commitee has developed a one-page survey. The main purpose of this survey is to better understand Richmond residents’ attitudes towards cultural differences. The survey contains very simple multiple choice questions and should take only a few minutes to complete. Once the survey results are tabulated, a discussion on diversity will follow. All of this would assist the committee in making suitable recommendations to council, whose goal is to make Richmond as one of the most welcoming, inclusive and harmonious communities in Canada. The survey forms are available from Richmond City Hall, local community centres and online. Completed survey forms can be dropped off at the same places or e-mailed to Alan Hill, Cultural Diversity Co-ordinator, City of Richmond (ahill@ richmond.ca). The deadline is Sept. 30.

Shepherd’s pie at the Highlander

365 Days of Dining Lindsay Anderson

Much of the food was Scottish, which I appreciated. Many winters ago I travelled in Scotland, and when sleet’s beating fiercely against the windows, there’s no greater comfort than pub food. Like I pointed out in my Pisces post, it’s traditional for any U.K. pubs to have at least a few Indian dishes on the menu, particularly some kind of curry. The Highlander Pub maintains this tradition, with choices like samosas and tandoori chicken alongside steak and kidney pie. We decided

cious, and we wished there was more of it! Even with the previous day’s sun, my cold had me craving the same winter comforts I ate in Scotland. I ordered the classic shepherd’s pie ($18), and was so glad I did. Shepherd’s pie is a relatively simple dish, and is usually a way to use up leftovers after a roast dinner. Meat and vegetables are chopped up, mixed with gravy, placed in the bottom of a dish, and topped with a mashed potato ‘crust.’

to order the vegetables samosas to start ($6), which were served with a cooling mint chutney and sweet tamarind sauce. The filling was a spicy mashed potato, carrot, and pea mixture, and the outside was crisp and flaky. We loved them, and finished them off in no time. I particularly liked the tamarind sauce. For mains, my sister, who was dining with me, went with the special: coconut-crusted halibut with Thai curry sauce, rice, and vegetables ($22). It was really quite tasty; the fish was cooked well, though I thought the coconut crust was a little too sweet. The sauce was deli-

he Abercorn Inn’s Highlander Pub and Restaurant offers both a pub and restaurant menu.

Then it’s baked, and preferably topped with more gravy before being served up. I used to make it for the tree planters, but only did so rarely, as it’s a lot of work to make from scratch for 70+ people. It was always a camp favourite; it’s hot, hearty, substantial, and pretty much guaranteed to make you feel better whether you’ve been shepherding all day, planting trees in the ground, or just have a head cold. The Highlander’s version, with its braid of creamy mashed potatoes and rich, well-seasoned gravy, was all of the above. I would gladly have it again, especially in the throes of winter. We were also quite enamoured with our server, Laura, who’s one of those people who makes you feel right at home.

P

ack away the pastels and summer basics — this season is all about embracing darker tones and lavish textures. From gothic leather and Shakespearean baroque pieces, to a revival of military detailing, this year’s fall trends will have something for every style. Orange was a big colour trend earlier

this year, but the cooler months will see an influx of vivid blues and reds in stores. Usually paired with black, blues were dominant on fall runways at the collections of DKNY and Stella McCartney. Cobalt, in particular, was a designer favourite. Easy to wear, blue tones also look great paired with silver for a chic, modern look. Reds were also

a standout colour in the fall collections. From deep burgundy to bright scarlet, try incorporating this trend with a bold red coat or dress to add some flair to cold grey days. For dressier ensembles, go for the gold — a slew of metallic gold dresses were spotted at Elie Saab and Michael Kors. For the day-today, limit gold to accent pieces such as belts, bracelets, coat trimming or small detailing on a blouse. For celebratory soirees, take the look to full items and dazzle in a gold sequined jacket or skirt.

With 47 shops and services featuring fashion, health & beauty, specialty products, food and dining, you’ll find a terrific selection of autumn essentials at Blundell Centre.

In terms of texture, leather is always huge for fall. Whether it was because of the popularity of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo or just a general moodiness in culture around the time designers were creating their collections, the tone translated into gothic leather pieces such as matte trench coats and embossed dresses. A highlight of the Proenza Schouler and Givenchy shows, leather has the capacity to be classic and rebellious depending on the fit, style and texture. Another trend similar to leather is the fascination with PVC and other waxy material. Channel Fendi’s futuristic take on PVC with a shiny black skirt made from the plastic textile.

Military styling seems to return every few seasons and it’s back again this fall. Structured army jackets were prominent at Jason Wu and Tommy Hilfiger. Look for tops and coats with epaulettes, pockets and round, gold buttons. Baroque and Shakespearean influences were also featured heavily in the collections. Try this renaissance trend by sporting opulent pieces with heavy embellishments and intricate designs. Brocade, through the use of gold and metallic threads, is also characteristic of baroque style.

Pantsuits are another popular choice for this season. Go sleek and polished with a suit in a solid colour or, for the more adventurous, with matching patterns. Prada and Louis Vuitton both sent models down the runway with printed pantsuits. Try a jacket and pant combo in matching florals, tartans or checks. Oversized silhouettes, especially for coats, are also trendy. Look for roomy, slightly baggy coats that drape away from the body. Another trend that falls in line with the oversized look is exaggerated hips. Peplum is continuing strong from spring and summer, but for the daring there are dresses and tops with panniers — extra fabric that extends from the

Jews prepare for sounds of Rosh Hashanah Locals get in spirit for holiest Jewish season with Shofar Factory workshop

I

n the next couple of weeks, students and children of all ages will get the unique opportunity to participate in a hands-on workshop— crafting their own shofars.

A shofar, a traditional Jewish trumpet made of a ram’s horn, is part of the Rosh Hashanah celebrations that mark the Jewish new year.
The shofar is perhaps the oldest wind instrument

known to mankind. Consisting of a simple horn taken from a ram or similar animal (such as a kudu) and hollowed of its internal cartilage, the instrument produces a haunting, almost mystical tone. “The shofar generates an otherworldly sound. It’s very soulful, very stirring, and open to much interpretation,” said Rabbi Yechiel Baitelman, director of Chabad of Richmond and sponsor of the Shofar Factory workshop. “Each individual hears something else in the shofar’s voice. Thus it’s most fitting and quite uplifting for the shofar to be blown during the High Holidays, the holiest Jewish season of the year.”
According to Jewish history, the sound of a shofar accompanied God’s giving of the Torah to

the ancient Hebrews, the ancestors of Jews today, as they stood at the foot of Mount Sinai in the Middle East wilderness. In addition, Jewish tradition has it that the Messianic Era, a time of world peace, will be ushered in with the sounding of the great shofar.
The shofar is sounded in Jewish houses of worship on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and at the end of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, for several reasons, not least among them its unique sound. “Chassidism teaches that the call of the Shofar is reminiscent of the pure voice of the soul,” explained Rabbi Baitelman. “At Rosh Hashanah, the soul strives to touch the divine.

Rosh Hashanah

Exploring the Shofar Factory Jewish Holidays offered of the fall Early autumn is a busy time for those who practice Judaism. Several holidays that have significant meaning fall in September and October, depending on the Hebrew calendar year. Here is a look at the significance and the way these special events are celebrated. Rosh Hashanah: In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah means "head of the year." The holiday is commonly referred to as the Jewish New Year. However, unlike the New Year celebrations in January, the Jewish New Year is one of the holiest of the Hebrew calendar, and not celebrated with the drinking and partying of January 1. Much of Rosh Hashanah is spent in synagogue, where special texts called the machzor are read. There are several customs for this holiday. The first is the blowing of the shofar, or the ram's horn, in synagogue. Many believe this practice is a call to repentance. Many people also practice a "casting off" of sins. Bread crumbs are carried in the pockets, and Jews flock to the water to throw the crumbs into the tides. A tradition of eating apples or bread dipped in honey is also customary. This symbolizes a desire for a sweet new year. Yom Kippur: Yom Kippur is perhaps one of the most important days for Jews. It is the "Day of Atonement." Even those who are not heavily religious will generally observe Yom Kippur. The majority of the day is spent in synagogue. It is customary to fast and abstain from any work on this day. It is even necessary to refrain from drinking water on this day. Fasting begins at sunset the day before Yom Kippur and ends at nightfall the next day. There are some other lesser-known customs. One should refrain from bathing or washing and anointing his or her body with cosmetics or perfumes. Leather shoes are also prohibited by Orthodox Jews, with canvas shoes being worn instead. It is customary to wear white on the holiday, as white is said to symbolize purity and calls to mind the promise that "our sins shall be made as white as snow." Sukkot: The festival of Sukkot begins on the fifth day after Yom Kippur. Historically, Sukkot commemorates the 40 years the Jews wandered the desert and lived in temporary shelters. It also has agricultural significance. Sukkot means "booths," or the temporary abodes Jews once resided in. Individuals build temporary dwellings outside the home for this holiday, and spend time eating and doing other activities as is permissible by the weather.

From Page 16 “Also the various notes sounded with the shofar remind one of weeping, which stirs people to better their ways, which is among the central themes of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.” 
 Participants in the Shofar Factory will learn just what criteria an animal’s horn must meet in order to qualify as a genuine shofar, after which they will saw, drill, sand, shellac and polish their very own horns and then learn how to sound the traditional notes. The Shofar Factory workshop will take place at local Jewish day schools and Hebrew Schools over the next couple of weeks. For more information, contact the Chabad office at 604-277-6427 or www.ChabadRichmond.com.

Sockeyes begin new era Thursday Aaron Wilbur assumes coaching reins as junior hockey team begins 40th season by Don Fennell Sports Editor As the new head coach of the Richmond Sockeyes, Aaron Wilbur probably couldn’t have picked a bigger pair of shoes to fill. Under his immediate predecessor, Judd Lambert, the Sockeyes posted some rather unbelievable numbers including a 181 to 37 win-loss ratio during the last five regular seasons and an equally stellar 42-12 record in the playoffs that included three Pacific International Junior Hockey League pennants, a pair of Cyclone Taylor (provincial championship) banners, and a Keystone Cup (Western Canadian championship) in 2009. But Wilbur, 31, can only do his best to focus on the job at hand and establish his own legacy of success. “I feel fortunate to walk into (this) situation, where the Sockeyes have a great tradition and there’s a lot of support,” says Wilbur. “Our general manager, Richard Petrowsky, does an unbelievable job handling the lo-

gistical aspects of the team which allows the coaches to focus on what’s happening on the ice.” As he prepares for Thursday’s 2012-13 season-opener (7:30 p.m. at Minoru Arenas) versus the Grandview Steelers, Wilbur is understandably optimistic. Twelve of the 22 players are returnees, including goaltender Kootenay Alder who, like many of his teammates, has impressed the new bench boss with his ability and determination. “Kootenay has demonstrated he wants to be No. 1 and to be a difference maker,” says Wilbur. “His work ethic suggests he’s ready for that.” Wilbur prefers his teams to play an up-tempo brand of hockey, but also to be reliable defensively. “In any situation you’ve got to be aware of the personnel, but I like guys to be mobile and to be involved in the play for all 200 feet of the ice,” he says. “I’m a big believer the other team can’t score with the puck on your stick so it’s up to you to man-

He is also president of The Coaches Site, a leading edge company that provides coaching conferences to minor hockey associations across Western Canada. Among his major coaching influences are St. Louis Blues’ head coach Ken Hitchcock; Penticton Vees’ bench boss Fred Harbinson, who coached the B.C.

Chaos scores big in women’s soccer opener by Don Fennell Sports Editor With 13 newcomers, several of whom sat out at least one of the past two seasons to focus on academic studies, it was expected to take a while for the Chaos to get going. Instead, they scored early and often in the opening game of the 2012-13 Metro Women’s Soccer League Division 3 campaign to defeat the Delta Rangers 9-1 Sunday in Tsawwassen. One of the newcomers, Jenny Lyons, paced the Richmond Girls’ Soccer-affiliated team with three goals in the Southwest pool match. Lyons, like the majority of the players is a graduate of the local youth soccer association. “She consistently showed great moves and accurate passing that put teammates in the open many times in both halves,” said

coach Al Groff, who was impressed with how effectively the players communicated. In joining the Chaos, Lyons is also reunited with former Funky Monkey teammates Jenn Forsberg, Jessica Ramsey, Sarah Little, LYON Janessa Murao and returning keeper Julia Badock. Ramsey scored one of the goals in her Chaos debut, while returning players Asia Robinson, Erin Lee, Dani Pacheo, Kelsey Lawrence and even defender Victoria Groff contributed to the offence. Pacheo also did a notable job patrolling the outside posi-

tion in the midfield opposite her sister Ana. Also back with the Chaos are midfielders Natalie Sczerkowsky and Kirstin Sullivan, while Andrea Bertram, Alexis Ford and Jewel Westin, Tanisha Sandhu, Lydia Pengilley and Taylor Bakken round out the squad. There are 13 Richmond-based teams in six divisions in the Metro Women’s Soccer League, five of which are affiliated with the Richmond Girls’ Soccer Association (RGSA). “We hope to grow (the affiliations) to have a team in every division,” says RGSA executive director Stew MacPherson, noting they’ve had their fare share of success in recent years. Now in Division 1, the Red Devils earned promotion by winning both the league and playoff banners last season, while two seasons ago the Rangers moved up to Division 2 after winning both honours. The previous year they were under-21 titlists.

He’s extremely friendly and loves a good snuggle. Crosley would make a great family cat. Come in and meet him today!
