City paves way for car-sharing

Once Upon a Time back for season 2

Up to 12 on-street parking spots could soon be reserved by carshare companies by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Martin van den Hemel photo Beverley Elliott (Red Riding Hood’s granny) has her makeup touched up Tuesday while shooting a scene for Once Upon a Time in Steveston.

Cars—that people share with strangers—are coming to City Centre streets. Up to three on-street parking spaces around Canada Line stations will be reserved for carshare vehicles, after city council approved the change Monday. Douglas Dunn, fleet director for the car-sharing co-operative Modo, said there’s a “huge push” from members to expand into Richmond. “We really see ourselves as another accessory to the lifestyle needs of someone in a given city,” said Dunn. Modo is seeking to locate vehicles near Canada Line stations on Lulu Island, and Dunn said the co-op could begin operating in Richmond by October. The Vancouver-based not-fotprofit organization already has 270 vehicles in Metro Vancouver, and each vehicle has its own designated parking space. Dunn said Modo hasn’t been able to secure parking spots from owners of private lots, so the company approached the city for onstreet spots near rapid transit.

“Having vehicles near these transit hubs makes the most sense, and often in many cases, the planning and construction that’s occurred around these stations favours residential housing,” he said. “So it makes sense as a natural thing to have car-sharing.” Other car-share companies are also looking to expand into Richmond. So far, Car2Go is the only one with a local presence, with two vehicles stationed in the parking lot of Kwantlen Polytechnic University, according to a city staff report. Staff say that parking car-share vehicles is best in off-street lots, and six such spots—in multi-family residential developments—are under construction. One, at Moncton Street and No. 1 Road in Steveston, is already complete. But no off-street spots exist yet near the Canada Line, hence the city’s move to reserve some street parking for car-sharing. Transportation planner Joan Caravan called it “an interim measure until off-street spaces become available.” “The ability to utilize street parking would further promote car-sharing due to the increased visibility and convenience,” said Caravan in her report to council. Parking spaces will be converted into car-share spots upon request, on a first-come, first-served basis. Car-share firms will pay the city $300 per year for the privilege, and spaces will be allocated for two-year terms. If the space is a pay-parking zone, that cost will be higher— according to the average annual revenue the space generates.

This camera was worth a thousand thank-yous Mountie goes extra mile to return stolen camera to vacationing family from U.S. by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A Richmond Mountie and his clever sleuthing are credited with turning an American family’s frown upside down following their recent vacation to Richmond. Scott McIntyre, his wife Elizabeth and their two teenage children were celebrating the couple’s 20th wedding anniversary with a lateJuly trip to the Pacific Northwest that included a stay in Seattle before coming up to B.C. But on the first night at their hotel, their rental car’s window was smashed, and gone was the family’s digital camera which McIntyre happened to have left inside that night. It wasn’t so much the digital camera, but the priceless year’s worth of memories contained on the memory card that the family desperately wanted back. “I never thought I would see it again frankly,” said McIntyre, whose family resides some 2,300 kilometres away in Minnesota. “We lost all of our pictures of Seattle...we also had kids pictures from birthdays and previous school events/sporting events on there that were not downloaded to our PCs for over 12 months. We take a lot of family pictures so we were missing a whole year of memories.” Enter RCMP Const. Alex Langley, who during a traffic stop, turned up what appeared to be stolen property, including the McIntyre’s digital camera. While examining the pictures on the camera, he spotted a scanned certificate from an elementary school. A little more detective work and a few phone calls later, and Langley connected with the McIntyres.

The McIntyre family’s digital camera was stolen during their July vacation to B.C., but thanks to a local Mountie’s clever detective work, their priceless photos were returned.

“Our deepest and sincerest gratitude in your willingness to go the extra mile (in this case 1,794 miles, or 2292.06 kilometres) to help reunite our camera, which holds so many dear memories, back into our hands,” Elizabeth wrote in an e-mail. Added Scott: “When we got the call from the constable indicating he tracked us down based on some of the kids school certificates my wife imaged with the camera, I almost

fell over. I thought to myself, someone in this day and age actually took the time to try to find out who the camera belonged to, called schools to find out if the student attended, and asked additional questions to try and get in touch with us. That is truly amazing.” Incidentally, the McIntyres had a blast during their vacation and are planning a return trip. “Everyone we interacted with was super nice

and helpful. The hotel manager even vacuumed out the glass from the broken window in the rental car. Being from Minnesota, we don’t get to eat fresh seafood so I had seafood wherever I could get it. Food was outstanding. I want to come back in the winter for some skiing.” And he’ll no doubt be packing his digital camera again, just not leaving it inside his rental car next time.

Sunday is season premiere of Steveston-shot series ABC’s Once Upon a Time is back for a second season by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Sunday night marks the return of Richmond’s favourite TV series, and early buzz from TV reviewers given an advance look is that it’s not one to be missed. Once Upon a Time, the bulk of which is shot in Steveston, was an unexpected ratings winner on ABC when it debuted last year. Created by the makers of the hit TV series Lost, the family-friendly fantasy series centres on fairy tale characters who, as a result of a powerful evil spell, forget who they are and where they came from. Jared Gilmore plays the elementary-school aged Henry, the adopted son of the mayor of Storybrooke, Maine (actually Richmond, B.C.) and is one of the few who see through the spell, and spends the season trying to convince his biological mother and others about the truth. Turns out Henry’s mom is the Evil Queen, and his real mom is the daughter of Prince Charming and Snow White. Fold in fascinating characters such as Rumpelstiltskin, played brilliantly by Robert Carlyle, and the show was hitting most of the right buttons, judging from viewership numbers. This year, joining Lost alum Alan Dale, who plays Prince Charming’s father, and Emilie de Ravin, as Rumpelstiltskin’s girlfriend, is Jorge Garcia, Hugo ‘Hurley’ Reyes, who is playing an as-yet unknown character. This week, Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) was spotted in Steveston, along with North Vancouver’s Beverley Elliott (Red Riding Hood’s granny), and Meghan Ory (Red Riding Hood). The season premiere (Sunday, CTV, 7 p.m.) picks up where last season’s finale ended, with the evil spell broken, and magic returning to the town of Storybrooke.

Josh Dallas, who plays Prince Charming on the hit TV series Once Upon a Time, hams it up with a member of the crew on Tuesday in Steveston, where the ABC show is filmed.

Surrey man gets three years for dramatic police chase by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A 40-year-old Surrey man was sentenced Tuesday to 37 months in prison for leading police on a dramatic chase that started in Vancouver, wound through Richmond, ended in New Westminster and seriously injured a police officer and hurt a female driver. David Bolton has also been banned from driving for five years for dangerous driving causing bodily harm in the April 24, 2012 incident. Vancouver police contacted Richmond Mounties around 10:30 a.m. that day regarding a complaint about a stolen vehicle heading into Richmond. Local plainclothes officers in unmarked vehicles were guided to the stolen car by the OnStar system. The suspect was spotted outside

his vehicle in the Bridgeport area, but he managed to slip back inside and rammed two police vehicles, injuring one of the officers, before speeding away in the stolen vehicle. RCMP helicopter Air 1 was able to track the suspect who was heading toward New Westminster, but enroute struck a vehicle at River Drive and No. 5 Road, injuring the female driver, but fortunately not her four-year-old son. Bolton then ditched the stolen car, and ran into a New Westminster dealership, where he tried to steal another vehicle, but was apprehended by New Westminster police without incident. Bolton was convicted of dangerous driving causing bodily harm, and fleeing police and causing bodily harm. He also received six months in prison for possession of stolen property, and breaking and entering.

On Thursday, Richmond RCMP partnered with ICBC to participate in Project Swoop, a oneday education and enforcement campaign to remind drivers about the dangers of speeding and distracted driving. Community policing volunteers from Richmond’s three Community Police Stations hit the pavement along with police officers and ICBC’s Road Safety Team to drive home the fact that both speeding and using a cell phone while driving are dangerous. “We’ve been telling people for quite some time now to slow down and pay attention when driving but still collisions are occurring where speed and distracted driving are factors,” said Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley.

Councillors demand faster action on Garden City lands Staff sent back to drawing board after unveiling three-year plan by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Senior planners are expected to present a new timetable to civic politicians Monday that maps the future of the Garden City lands. Council’s parks committee considered a new report on one of

the city’s largest and most contentious real estate holdings Tuesday. In it, planners laid out a planning process for the vacant 55-hectare (136.5-acre) site that begins in 2013 and ends three years later. But councillors told staff they want quicker action, suggesting some of the seven planning stages could be completed concurrently. A consultant would be tasked with the first phase, scheduled for completion in fall 2013. The work, budgeted at $150,000, involves reviewing existing studies and Agricultural Land Commission rules, and an examination of vegetation,

soil and wildlife. Councillors have asked staff to return with a revised timeline at Monday’s 4 p.m. general purposes committee meeting. On March 31, 2010, the city completed the purchase of the Garden City lands, netting the Musqueam Indian Band and Canada Lands Company $29.6 million each from the city. Musqueam Chief Ernest Campbell and other band members subsequently launched a lawsuit to reverse the sale and honour an original agreement to develop the land. The lawsuit has yet to be resolved.

Richmond non-profit groups mull alliance Volunteer Richmond and Richmond Community Foundation subject of study Two well-known local charities are exploring the possibility of forming an alliance. The Richmond Community Foundation and Volunteer Richmond Information Services are studying how they can strengthen and enhance their effectiveness and impact in the community. “Each of our organizations has its own identity and plays a unique role in the community. With this study, we are looking into how we could benefit from the

sharing of resources, while still maintaining our autonomy,” said Elizabeth Specht, executive director of Volunteer Richmond. Sylvia Gwozd, chair of the Richmond Community Foundation, agreed. “This study is, in part, recognition that our roles in the community complement each other in a very meaningful way, and that each organization, by working together, could greatly further its mission.” Liberty Quest Enterprises won the contract to lead the formal study, which is funded by a grant from the Vancouver Foundation. The study will look at the opportunities and challenges posed by an alliance of this type based on input from both organizations and the community.

Public has doubts about Conservatives

I

f six months is an eternity in politics, eight months is even longer.

In B.C. politics, every move is calculated as to its effect on the provincial election which will be held on May 14, 2013. Right now, almost everything is in a state of flux. While the NDP is firmly in the lead in voter preference at present, the BC Liberals are making attempts to shore up their support, and having some success. That’s why the BC Conservative convention in Langley on the weekend was so important. If the party had come through the event unscathed and united, it would be more likely that the BC Liberals were headed for oblivion in the next election. However, the Conservatives didn’t come through the weekend stronger — at least in the eyes of the public. Internally, the party is more united and the leader, John Cummins, has a renewed mandate. But people wonder why former candidate John Martin went over to the BC Liberals on Friday, and why former Liberal John Van Dongen, the party’s lone MLA, left the party Saturday shortly after Cummins’ leadership was endorsed.

While Van Dongen seems to have trouble with party leaders (he has now publicly castigated two of them in six months), he was a key asset to the Conservatives. As an elected MLA, he had an unique profile. Even more importantly, had he remained a Conservative MLA, there would be no question about Cummins taking part in leaders’ debates. That isn’t so certain now. In 1991, when the BC Liberals made their breakthrough, the biggest break of all came when Gordon Wilson was added to the leaders’ debates, after numerous protests. That appearance, and a brief retort he made to Mike Harcourt and Rita Johnston, was gold for the party, which elected 17 MLAs despite some very weak campaigns. The party’s fortunes went up overnight, and Wilson’s debate performance and the subsequent rise in Liberal polling numbers even brought about a counterattack from the NDP, which until that time had ignored the Liberals. The BC Conservatives will have problems matching the Liberals’ 1991 performance. The party has little money, and although wellorganized in some parts

P

remier Christy Clark’s latest employment announcement set the tone for one of the big issues in the 2013 election.

Flanked by aircraft technician students at BCIT in Burnaby, Clark announced a $75-million program to upgrade aging trade and technical school facilities and hire instructors. And she did it with some pointed criticism of the career path chosen by many of today’s high school

students. Clark introduced a student electrician, the first woman to win the senior technology education award at her high school, who then went on to get a bachelor’s degree in English and sociology. No job, so she went to BCIT. Her message was clear. The government’s preelection budget is going to shift priorities to the huge number of skilled trades jobs that are already going begging in the north. More students will get started in high school, instead of being subsidized to wander around and find themselves with an unfocused university degree that still leaves them in need of practical skills. Shop upgrades were announced for trades training in Prince George, Kelowna and Greater Victoria. There will be new student financial aid, but it will be tied to skill programs the economy

needs now. And with the government’s financial situation, you can bet that sociology, women’s studies and the rest of the dead-end programs dear to the hearts of last year’s Occupy campers will feel the pinch. The B.C. Liberal skills training push was partly inspired by last year’s “inequality” protest, after Dawson Creek Mayor Mike Bernier waded into the Occupy Vancouver squat to hand out business cards. They need cooks and labourers as well as pipefitters up there these days, and that’s before the B.C. gas patch goes into a huge expansion for Asian exports. A version of Kevin Falcon’s “welfare air” idea to move unemployed recipients north was included in last week’s announcement by Clark and her jobs czar, Pat Bell. Called “Job Match,” it’s a $2.9-million pilot program

in the Peace region. It will deliver basic education and work boots for people in that region before anyone will be flown up from Nanaimo or Nelson. Cruising along at nearly 50 per cent in the polls, the NDP have also put a heavy emphasis on post-secondary. But they’re still playing to the urban Occupy crowd, with a promise of a tax on banks to fund student grants. Instead of providing loan relief after successful completion, they’re going to hand out money at the front end, just like they did in my student days. My experience as a student, a job seeker and a parent is that free money encourages aimless study, and the selection of courses that are appealing rather than safe investments. We already have far too much of that, and I think most students today would be better off with a bigger debt and a wellpaying job.

As the new trades plan was being rolled out (and mostly ignored by the Vancouver media), former finance minister Colin Hansen announced he’s retiring. It was Hansen who started the push for skills training back in 2008, emphasizing that there will be a million new jobs open by 2019, 600,000 of them due to retiring baby boomers. Hansen made a sales trip to snowy Toronto to launch advertising to lure people to B.C. That effort is being revised with a series of interprovincial and international trips, because even if all 650,000 high school students graduate and go to work in B.C. from now to 2019, it won’t be enough to fill all the jobs on the horizon.

Editor: When we elect our politicians in Canada we expect them to demonstrate a certain degree of leadership on issues important to our country. Stephen Harper’s failure to address the United Nations General Assembly this week sends an important message to Canadians on how he views the United Nations. In my opinion, it also demonstrates how he sees leadership opportunities that might pose problems or obstacles to achieving his political goals. Harper has addressed the UN twice, once just after he was elected in 2006 and again in 2010 when Canada was seeking a seat on the Security Council. This week he was just down the street from the UN receiving an award from another group but refused an invitation to address the UN delegates. U.S. President Barack Obama took the time to address the delegates and he is in the midst of an election campaign! Canada has lots to say to other world leaders. The question of our arctic sovereignty for instance is critically important to this country as global warming opens up the Northwest Passage to shipping traffic from other nations along with the exploration for oil and gas reserves. Continuing efforts at humanitarian relief in Haiti and Darfur need to be reinforced at the UN. Canada’s ongoing role in Afghanistan needs to be explained. If Harper wants to stress Canada’s independent foreign policy, this UN meeting is the forum to do it. As a matter of fact, most Canadians would appreciate an explanation of what our foreign policy really is! This behaviour from Stephen Harper is not unique. Unlike other prime ministers before him, he has not called a first ministers conference of all the Provincial Premiers to meet and discuss national issues. Health care, housing, pensions and municipal infrastructure are just some examples of problems crying out for a national solution or at least financial help from the federal government. It is obvious he will not come to the table if he is exposed to criticism, cannot control the script or have a predetermined outcome. It is a sad day in our history when our prime minister will not take the world stage or even the national stage to demonstrate his leadership on international and national issues. We are a country that encompasses many different points of view. Only by taking a leadership role in discussing issues will a prime minister move us forward as a nation. It is unfortunate Harper cannot see beyond his narrow political agenda. Greg Halsey-Brandt Richmond

After dark the high-rise condos rarely have more than about 25 per cent of the units lit up and I suppose you can assume that is the occupancy rate; and yet more and more are being built in this time of an obvious slow down in the sale of homes. Can’t Richmond council see that it is time to say no to any more applications for re-development.

community ICBC workers strike another day

Police nab final beating suspect

ICBC workers are taking another one-day strike next Wednesday. The Oct. 3 walkout by about a third of the workforce – mostly in the Lower Mainland – is the latest job action by members of COPE local 378 in a bid to press the province for a significant wage increase. The union wants a four-year deal that keeps pace with inflation but adds an extra two per cent in each of the final two years, while the province has sought a pay freeze. “They’re still not willing to budge on wages,” union president David Black said. “Their proposals put our members far behind the rising cost of living.” The walkout affects some driver service or licensing centres as well as some other offices in Surrey, Burnaby, Abbotsford, Port Coquitlam, Langley, New Westminster, Richmond, Vancouver and North Vancouver.

Vancouver Police are seeking charges against 50 more accused Stanley Cup rioters, including the last of 15 alleged assailants who attacked a Good Samaritan who tried to hold back the mob. Jonathan Stephen Mahoney, a 24-year-old Newfoundland man who police tracked down and arrested in Saskatchewan, now faces charges of participating in a riot, assault, assault with a weapon and two counts of mischief. He’s accused of joining others in swarming and beating Robert Mackay, who tried to keep a department store from being looted. Crown has so far charged 13 of those accused of participating in the assault, which was caught on video. The new recommended charges to Crown target 44 men and six women ranging in age from 14 to 39. A dozen of them hail

from Vancouver, 11 are from Surrey, four are from North Vancouver and three each are from Langley, Maple Ridge, New Westminster or are from elsewhere in B.C. Of all riot suspects, the top five cities they call home are Surrey (55), Vancouver (50), Burnaby (30), Rich-

mond (21) and North Vancouver (18).

Telus completes fast wireless upgrade Telus has finished its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) upgrade in the Lower Mainland, extending fast wireless

technology throughout the region. The company spent $8.2 million on the upgrade from Richmond to Langley and another $2.2 million in the Fraser Valley. LTE is the emerging standard for wireless technology, with most handsets now built for its higher speed.

Free transit offer for students It’s called iWalk, but it’s not a new gadget. TransLink is offering students free transit for the week of Oct. 8-12 in support of International Walk to School Week. The idea is to promote alternatives to riding the family car to school

and the offer is available to students from kindergarten to high school (with a valid GoCard.) Students can use the free transit offer any time of day that week and not just to get to school. Classes can also take advantage of it to go on field trips.

Approriately, the award was presented at Volunteer B.C.’s annual general meeting in a room filled with individuals dedicated to community service. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne in 1952. The medal serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. “The award is fitting for Elizabeth who has made a career out of public service, serving as executive director at VRIS, president of Volunteer BC and Volunteer Canada. She is hard working, optimistic, generous, and a visionary when it comes to community engagement,”says Michael McCoy, who nominated Specht. Specht who did not know the award was going to be given to her stated, “it is a privilege to do what I do every day and to serve the community. I am honoured to receive such recognition for something I value and enjoy so much.”

Falling leaves, cooler temperatures makes for superb running

Fall is my favourite season to run whether it is early morning or evening, therefore getting up from a cozy bed at 5:30 A.M. to run in the dark with a headlamp into the crisp cool air comes au naturel. It is peaceful and calm when I hit the streets with just a few other hearty souls out there experiencing the pure joy of running before the sun comes up. The fresh air wakes me up and gives a jumpstart to the day. As daylight becomes more fleeting at this time of year, I also enjoy racing the sun, or basically trying to complete my late afternoon run before the emerging night renders me blind - this is a great motivator. It doesn’t matter where you find your motivation sometimes the intoxicating aroma of someone’s dinner wafts my way, making me want to run home quicker. I can’t help thinking about pumpkin pie and pumpkin latte at this time of year. Meanwhile, Mother Nature is doing her part, offering up golden sunsets to go with a virtual kaleidoscope of colour, as if showing off her best side while she’s in a good mood. And the scene looks like a beautiful oil painting that you are privileged to just magically insert yourself, becoming part of all of her splendor. The leaves, having reached their zenith, float slowly back to earth as you run past and you hear them crunch beneath your feet. They have turned the pathways into a beautiful, multi-hued carpet right before your eyes. You can’t help but become alive with nature and feel the bond. Soon you are running faster for no reason other than just being out there and with cooler temperatures,

eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. 4. Run with a friend or a group to keep you motivated. Join a clinic to inspire you to keep running. 5. Set a running goal. Participate in some new races like cross country or Spartan obstacle racing. Invest in a log book to record your adventures right from the start. Enjoy the season. Fall is a great time to start running and for the seasoned runner it is about getting out there and taking in all of what nature can bring. Christine Blanchette is a Richmond runner and writer.

Running outside can be harder on your joints than the treadmill but the benefits are too great to pass up. The fresh air is a good prescription for both your physical and mental health. 2. Invest in some fall clothing. Wear reflective gear, headlamp and dri fit long sleeved clothing and tights. Hat or toque when it is colder. Make sure your shoes are okay to run on wet or slippery surfaces. 3. Carry an I.D. with you and be careful running in less light. Always make

the energy you expend is mitigated, therefore you can improve your running performance. A new season is a time for setting new running goals, with a staple of fall running being the onset of cross country racing, which is enjoyed by everyone from beginners to seasoned athletes. Most running stores carry brochures of races in your area. If you are suffering summer withdrawal and still want to run in shorts, you might be thinking the treadmill is the next best thing to going outside.

Undeclared bounty costs traveler $4,000 A man who failed to declare to Canada Customs a number of high-ticket items following a return trip from Beijing last January, was fined more than $4,000 in Richmond provincial court last week.

Xin Chen pled guilty for originally declaring he brought back $600 worth of goods and one carton of cigarettes when in fact he carried nine cartons and more than $14,000 in undeclared goods. Chen returned to Vancouver International Airport on Jan. 7, 2012, and used the automated border clearance machine. After being referred for a secondary examination, he admitted to have nine cartons, not just one.

Over two decades, YVR Golf for Kids has raised more than $3.6 million for children’s charities. And co-founder Wayne Duzita of Richmond believes the best is yet to come. “It’s important for events like YVR Golf for Kids and others to continue our work for the community,” he says. “During challenging times we continue to draw support for the (Vancouver International) airport community and our sponsors and on a go-forward basis we continue to review our program to make changes to guarantee our ability to support community needs for children.” The 21st edition of YVR Golf for Kids, held last month at Richmond’s Quilchena Golf & Country Club, and the subsequent gala dinner and auction at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel raised $200,000.

YVR Golf for Kids founders Brian Flagel and Wayne Duzita (right).

Duzita says it speaks to people’s generosity and support. “We are very grateful for the continued donations of prize items for both the live and silent auctions and look forward to 2013 and our ability to increase donations to those in need,” he says. The 2012 event was highlighted by the appearance of jockey Mario Gutierrez, who narrowly missed win-

ning horse racing’s triple crown aboard I’ll Have Another. Besides golfing and attending the dinner-auction, Gutierrez also auctioned a print of one him racing aboard I’ll Have Another. His appearance was sponsored by Glen Todd of Pacific Customs Brokers, who is also a horse owner at Hastings Park and was a mentor for the young jockey.

The Chieftains will perform a concert at River Rock Show Theatre on Thursday, Oct. 11.

The Chieftains play River Rock on Oct. 11 A band that has long been recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world’s attention is coming to Richmond Oct. 11. The Chieftains will bring their wealth of traditional Irish music to River Rock Show Theatre for the concert. Paddy Moloney formed the band of top Irish folk musicians in 1962. Although their early following was purely a folk audience, the range and variations of their music quickly made them the best known Irish band in the world. This year marks the Chieftains’ 50th anniversary and to commemorate, they’ve released a new album, Voice of Ages, which finds Moloney, Kevin Conneff and Matt Molloy collaborating with some of modern music’s fastest rising artists, including Bon Iver, the Decemberists and Paolo Nutini. Tickets to the Thursday night show, at 8 p.m., are $59.50 to $69.50 and available at ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000.

Elvis tribute act headlines fundraising gala Vancouver Elvis impersonator Darren Lee is set to perform at River Rock Casino Resort for Richmond Centre for Disability’s annual fundraising gala. This year’s gala, Viva Las Vegas: A Tribute to Elvis, features a performance from the Elvis Presley tribute artist, along with dancing, games of chance and a Las Vegas-style buffet. Lee discovered the music of Elvis in his youth; “Hound Dog” was the first song that caught his ear. He showed such an interest that his mom bought him his first guitar at age three. In his teen years, Lee began playing talent contests and lounges. His break came in 1988, when he entered an Elvis talent contest in Edmonton and won second place. That led to a Canadian tour of an ‘50s-themed Elvis show, and later, a regular show in Las Vegas. The fundraising gala is Saturday, Oct. 20, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $88, or $800 for a table of 10. Visit rcdrichmond.org for tickets or call Eileen at 604-232-2404.

Many city hall watchers are irked by how often councils move meetings behind closed doors and wonder if all the secrecy is justified. Now B.C. Ombudsperson Kim Carter has weighed in on the debate on in-camera meetings and suggests elected officials take greater care in deciding to hide their deliberations from public view. Her new report suggests best practices for ensuring local government transparency and does not make specific findings or binding recommendations. But Carter does suggest councils try to give more detail on why meetings are moved in camera, rather than just listing the section of the Community Charter that allows closed-door meetings on grounds such as legal advice or negotiations. One concern is that there are the situations when the public never even hears a closed door meeting took place. Councils are supposed to give 24

hours notice of an in-camera special meeting, but notice can be waived on a unanimous vote. Carter’s report suggests that power be used very sparingly and one good policy is to let citizens sign up for email alerts when any special meeting is declared. Another issue is what actually counts as a meeting. Many councils hold informal meetings dubbed retreats, workshops or “short sleeve sessions” that Carter said should sometimes be considered meetings and be held in public unless otherwise justified. “Just calling it a workshop or a short sleeve session doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not a meeting,”she said in an interview. Even discussions between council members via text message or group emails can start out as simple information sharing but cross the line into deliberations toward a future decision – meaning the same rules should apply. “If you are conducting a meeting that should be open to the public in a way that cannot be open to the public, you need to reconsider and think about how you will make your meeting open,” Carter added. Randy Helten, of the group Metro Van Watch, says excessive use of closed-door meetings is a serious concern for many civic observers.“Definitely some improvements are needed,” he said. “This is a world-class city and region and we should have world-class policies for transparence and accountability.”

As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.

Exploring the different types of breast cancer Breast cancer is a universal term to describe several different cancers that form in and around the breasts. Breast cancer types are generally categorized based on where the illness begins, most often in the ducts or lobules, the parts of the female anatomy responsible for producing breast milk. About 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer in American women will be diagnosed in 2012, while more than 22,000 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer over that same time period. The U.S. National Breast Cancer Foundation lists seven different types of breast cancer. Here’s a look at them. •Ductal carcinoma in-situ (DCIS): This is an early form of breast cancer that refers to the presence of abnormal cells inside a milk duct in the breast. This type of cancer is generally found during mammograms and is considered non-invasive. This means it hasn’t spread yet. This makes treatment for DCIS easier than for other forms of breast cancer. •Infiltrating ductal carcinoma (IDC): Also known as invasive ductal carcinoma, this is the most common type of breast cancer. According to BreastCancer.org, roughly 80 percent of all breast cancer cases are IDC. This cancer starts in the ducts, but “infiltrating” means that it spreads to the surrounding breast tissue. Over time, IDC can spread to the lymph nodes and possibly to other areas of the body.

The U.S. National Breast Cancer Foundation lists seven different types of breast cancer.

•Medullary carcinoma: This is a less common form of breast cancer. It is a type of IDC, but it gets its name from the color of the tumors, which are close to the color of brain tissue, or medulla. Medullary carcinoma is quite visible during mammograms because the cancer cells are large and form a barrier between healthy tissue and tumors. •Infiltrating lobular carcinoma (ILC): The American Cancer Society says that 1 in 10 women will be diagnosed with ILC, which originates in the milk-producing glands of the breast. In ILC, abnormal cells inside the lobule begin to divide and break through the wall of the lobule to invade the surrounding connecting tissues. •Tubular carcinoma: This is a common cancer for women ages 50 and older. When viewed under the microscope, tubular carcinoma cells have a distinctive tubular structure. There is a 95 percent survival rate for tubular carcinoma. •Mucinous carcinoma (Colloid): This is a rare condition in which the breast cancer cells within the breast produce mucus. The mucus and the cancer cells join together to form a jelly-like tumor. The tumors may feel like bumpy water balloons, but some are too small to detect with the fingers. •Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC): This is a rare and very aggressive type of breast cancer that causes the lymph vessels in the skin around the breast to become blocked. The cancer gets its name from the appearance of a swollen, red and inflamed breast.

On behalf of friends and clients who have courageously battled breast cancer, I proudly sponsor the annual Yard Sale for the Cure and raised almost $1000 in 2012. Be a part of the giving, when you buy or sell your home through me a donation will be made to the Re/Max Sold on a Cure program. Thank you to all for your ongoing business support! ~Diane

The Richmond Raiders head into their fifth game of the season Sunday at Vernon’s Clarence Fulton Stadium still looking for a victory. Any victory. The recent years have been challenging at best for the once-dominant Raider Nation, which hasn’t won the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s Midget Division since 2001. Last year, they managed only a single win in 10 games and were outscored 306-41. A 49-0 opening-day loss this season to the Vancouver Trojans, followed by a 36-0 loss at the Victoria Spartans, did little to suggest things were improving. But head coach Scott Robertson believes they are. And their last two out-

ings, particularly last weekend’s narrow 13-8 setback to the North Langley Bears—a game in which the result was in doubt until the end—has armed Raider fans with at least hope. “I believe we’re going in the right direction,� says Robertson, who has welcomed seven new players in the last two weeks. With the additions, the Raiders now boast a roster of 25 players. What’s more, that’s also the number of players that came out to the last practice which any coach will tell you is paramount to a team’s success. “It’s a big learning curve and football is a repetitive sport,� says Robertson. “We started this season with 10 guys who never played at all before, so it’s particularly huge for them.� See Page 21

Don Fennell photo Richmond Peewee Raiders quarterback Tre Rhodes looks for an open receiver during the Raiders’ 32-0 loss to Coquitlam Cougars Sunday at Minoru Park.

Line’s play gives offence confidence From Page 21 Robertson was elated with the play of the Raiders’ offensive line against the Bears, crediting it for allowing the rest of the offence to show well. “Our line coaches have worked real hard with those players to be able to pick up blitzes and things like that,” Robertson says. “As a result our young quarterback felt more confident in the pocket and we were able to move the football down the field. I think we gained a huge amount of confidence and we know now we can move the ball and score, but we still have to work with the guys on continuing to be positive. We can’t dwell on our mistakes, we just have to learn from them. “We’ve got a lot of young guys, 16- and 17-year-olds, so the biggest thing is going to be trying to keep them together,” he says. “But if we can, I think we can (again) build a winning program that others will want to be a part of.” •Most of the Raiders’ Vancouver Mainland Football

League teams are scheduled to play at home this Sunday. Kicking off the action will be the Flag Division squad, hosting Royal City Hyacks Orange at 9 a.m. at Minoru Park. That game will be followed by the Atoms versus Royal City Hyacks Black at 10 a.m., Peewees versus Langley Cowboys at 11:45 a.m., and Bantams (nine-man) versus Vancouver Trojans at 1:30 p.m. Richmond’s Junior Bantam team (Minor Division), which plays in the North Shore Football League (formerly known as the Gordon Sturtridge Football League), will cap the day’s action playing host to the Titans at 3 p.m. in an American-rules, fourdown game. Last weekend in the Vancouver Mainland Football League, Richmond’s Atoms won 30-0 at the Cloverdale Tigers; Bantams downed Coquitlam Charger 26-12; and the Peewees lost 32-0 to Coquitlam Cougars. Flag scores aren’t kept. Richmond’s Junior Bantam (Minor Division) team also lost its North Shore league game 19-6 to the Vikings.

The Richmond Christmas Fund: How You Can Help

T

he Richmond Chamber of Commerce has enjoyed a long, productive partnership with Volunteer Richmond Information Services, and is proud to be part of the latter’s Circle of Friends. This group, which includes community leaders like Coast Capital Savings, The Richmond Review, and Richmond Centre, supports Volunteer Richmond in the delivery of programs serving everyone from youth to seniors to new immigrants. But there’s one program in particular that deserves your support. It’s a program that brings the community together like no other, and has come to represent Richmond’s spirit of giving. For individuals struggling through difficult times, it creates hope. For children, it creates lifelong memories. It’s the Richmond Christmas Fund.

The Christmas Fund helps brighten the holidays for those who need it most: seniors living alone, single parent families, and others who simply can’t afford a meal on the table or gifts under the tree. Each year, the Christmas Fund distributes grocery vouchers to over 2,000 Richmond residents, and provides nearly 900 children with toys, games, and books. The Chamber has always been closely involved with the program, offering our support however and whenever we can. We host our annual Christmas Lunch fundraiser, for example, and participate – along with many Chamber members – in the Richmond Auto Mall’s Windows

of Hope event. This year, though, in order to have a greater impact than ever before, we’re going to need a group effort.

Thursday, October 4 Breakfast with Adrian Dix, Leader of the Official Opposition. Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel, 7551 Westminster Hwy Registration: 7:15am Breakfast: 8:00am Sharp Tickets: Members: $35.00 +HST Non-Members: $50.00+HST

Members Creating Miracles

We’re incredibly excited to announce the Richmond Chamber of Commerce Members Creating Miracles campaign. Our goal is to have 100 Chamber members each donate $500 to the Christmas Fund, or $50,000 in total. If that sounds like a lot, that’s because it is. Such a donation would enable the Christmas Fund to not only help more families, but also, in the coming years, to offer greater assistance to those registered with the program. As the cost of living rises – including the price of food – a growing number of our friends and neighbours will be unable to experience the simple joy of a holiday meal. You and your fellow Chamber members can change that. Please donate, and help create a miracle. How to Give

To make a donation, visit christmasfund.volunteerrichmond. ca (type “Miracles” as the dedication message) or call 604-279-7020. Members who donate will be issued a tax receipt and have the option of adding their company logo to a special Members Creating Miracles webpage, which will track the campaign’s progress throughout the holiday season. Logos can be e-mailed to info@ volunteerrichmond.ca.

Family Sponsorship: Another Way to Donate

Few people can claim to have witnessed a miracle, but, thanks to the Richmond Christmas Fund Family Sponsorship program, you have a chance to be counted among them. Together with your co-workers, your family, or a group of friends, you can create a custom hamper filled with food and gifts for a family in need. The best part? You get to deliver it in person and see the look in the family’s eyes. There’s a tiny miracle in that moment. For more information on sponsoring a family, visit www. volunteerrichmond.ca or call 604279-7020. November 29th: 1 Day. 1 Cause. 2 Events.

On Thursday, November 29, from 6:00am – 12:00pm, Lansdowne

Centre will play host to the Second Annual Christmas Fund Drive-Thru Event. As you’re on your way to work, whether by car, public transit, or foot, stop by the southwest corner of the mall’s parking lot, next to the Canada Line station. Volunteers will be on hand collecting donations on behalf of the Christmas Fund. You can drop off new toys or books, cash, or gifts cards, and, in return, receive a free coffee and breakfast treat. We hope to see you there! We also hope to see you out and about doing your Christmas shopping. That’s because November 29 is more than the date of the Drive-Thru event – it’s the Day of Giving. When you shop at a participating business, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Christmas Fund. To learn more about the Day of Giving, visit www.dayofgiving.ca.

The Brockmanns remain faithful to the founder’s principles of Service, Quality and Reliability. As a member of the National Confectioners Association of America, Brockmann’s is dedicated to total customer satisfaction. This is reflected in the outstanding quality of the products and the assurance that only the finest and freshest ingredients are selected. Brockmann’s uses only the finest imported European chocolate, and constant quality control in all areas is practiced. The entire plant is temperature controlled to ensure freshness. The modern processing plant with its “State of the Art” equipment, coupled with the product knowledge of our European trained chocolatiers guarantees that products manufactured and

packaged meet the highest quality standards. Reliability, integrity and honesty are ingredients not to be missed in the make-up of any of Brockmann’s products. These values are practiced by the management and everyone else on their team and are appreciated by all of their long time customers. In the the spring of 1999, the Truffini line was launched. The name Truffini was a perfect fit for a high quality chocolate truffle line with the flair that reflected the Brockmann’s European background. Truffini is created using premium chocolate and the freshest natural ingredients available to create the luxuriously smooth and creamy truffles and bars. You can find Brockmann’s Truffini line in most local grocery stores. Brockmann’s Chocolate is located at 7863 Progress Way Delta, BC. You can reach them at 604-946-4111 or online at www.brockmannchocolate.com.

Supplement to the Richmond Review

In the suburban setting in California, a 61 year old woman pushes a grocery cart to her front door. We watch her climb through a window covered in ivy and cob webs into her house, stepping on top of stacks of newspapers, piles of debris, rotting material, clothing, and toys; a living mass of waste that has literally pushed her out of the house and into her garden. My Mother’s Garden is the story of Eugenia Lester whose hoarding disorder has entered a life threatening stage. Directed by her daughter Cynthia, it documents how one family comes together to cope with their mother’s disorder and rebuild a lost sense of family.

Lee, 16, was assigned to the team at the start of this season by the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League. Following a series of off-ice moves this week (Eric Margo returned to Vancouver Northwest Giants of the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League, Justin Rai signed with Prince George of the BCHL, Justin LaChance retired , Rayne Schwinghammer was promoted from Vancouver Minor Midget A1 and Stephen Campbell acquired from North Delta Devils for future considerations), the Sockeyes (3-0-1) are set to play the Panthers Saturday in Port Moody before returning home to tunnel rival Delta Ice Hawks Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Minoru Arenas.

Sports Editor Steve Valenzuela is determined to make the Richmond Senior Soccer Association allencompassing. It’s an ambition goal, but one the second-year president is already realizing. Among the priorities is solidifying the Masters Division, which at present has only five teams—Flying Beaver, Club Ireland Gaels, IFC Oldlanders, Jugadores CF Masters and Richmond Old Blacks. Valenzuela wants to see that number grow to at least eight over the next couple of years. “We should have started working on this at least a few years ago, but we’ve had some challenges getting traction and there’s still a lot of nurturing that is necessary,” says Valenzuela, who plays for Club Ireland in both the First Division and the Masters Division. Valenzuela says the key to a successful Masters Division will be the co-operation of the teams in the Premier, First and Second Divisions to support interclub permits. These permits enable players, like himself, to play for the club in more than one division. “It’s a way to help build up the player pool in the Masters Division, because there’s

same song book.” Former Richmond Senior Soccer Association president Don Taylor, who opted to sit out this season because the games are on Thursday evenings at the same time he plays hockey, believes the Masters Division can and will grow. “We tried to get it going 10 years ago when we had a number of teams with players over 35, but couldn’t get the commitment,” says Taylor. “Teams didn’t want to split up and were satisfied with the level of competition the three divisions gave them. But now guys who are turning 35 and 40 are realizing it’s not much fun to have been a top player and not being able to keep pace with twenty-somethings. They’re realizing that 10-plus year difference in age is showing.” Taylor doesn’t ex-

still a lot of guys who are eligible to play Masters but yet want to continue to play in one of the open divisions,” Valenzuela says. The inter-club permit is also a way for clubs with teams in more than one division to find the appropriate level for a player to compete in the Richmond Senior Soccer Association. “The clubs that have figured this out are using it well and usually tend to be the ones that are most successful (in the standings),” he says. With a few exceptions, the minimum age a player is eligible to participate in the Masters Division is 35 years old. So far, the oldest player is in his late 50s. And don’t think the Masters Division teams aren’t competitive, or that they can’t give some of the open division teams a good challenge. “I actually find playing in the Masters Division harder at times,” Valenzuela says. “There are some great players who wile they aren’t in the shape they once were, are positionally very good. It’s also a very different game because all the players are so smart and you get this beautiful movement of play. It’s like a piece of music that’s well-orchestrated. Everyone sings from the

pect the Masters Division teams to be able to keep pace with the open division squads, but like Valenzuela says they shouldn’t be underestimated. “The Dragons dominated the Premier Division a few years ago and they were an older team,” he says. “Then when they got to all be around 35, saw the over-35 league as a place where they could continue to be a highlysuccessful team. Play in the Masters Division started up last Thursday with defending and inaugural champion Richmond Old Blacks earning a bye. Club Ireland Gaels scored a 2-1 win over newly-formed Oldlanders FC (affiliated with Islanders FC in the Premier Division, Insurgency in Division One and IFC United in Division Two) and Jugadores lost 2-0 to Flying Beaver. •Week three in the Richmond Senior Soccer League’s three open divisions didn’t produce a lot of upsets, but it did provide the Firefighters with their first win of the season, 4-2 over Insurgency. After being pressed early, Gerald Murphy gave the Firefighters a 1-0 lead when his shot from 25 yards out from the top left corner of the net three minutes in. The teams continued to exchange chances before Kevin Nasiri of Insurgency tied the game at 1-1 when he scored from 20 yards away just before the end of the first half. Play in the second half was pretty even as well until Kevin Greentree was sent in alone from the top of the box and roofed a shot to again put the Firefighters out front. Less than five minutes later, Greentree got past the defence and snuck a shot short side. With 15 minutes to go, Insurgency pulled to within a goal when the Firefighters failed to clear a bounce. Firefighters completed the win with a late penalty shot goal.

‘Crucial time in the history of residential construction’

GVHBA to welcome new CEO The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association has announced the appointment of Bob de Wit as its new chief executive officer, replacing current CEO Peter Simpson who is retiring at the end of October. “I am honoured and excited to have the opportunity to join GVHBA and help build on the efforts of Peter and his excellent team,” says de Wit. De Wit has experience in corporate development, finance and competitive market intelligence. “This is such a crucial time in the history of residential construction with the explosion of new technologies and environmental complexity, and GVHBA

needs to continue to encourage cooperation among members and other stakeholders as they negotiate that change,” says de Wit. “I look forward to leveraging my previous executive leadership ... to (deliver) even greater value for GVHBA members.” “I am delighted Bob emerged as the new leader tasked with taking this respected association to greater heights of excellent for members and consumers alike,” says Simpson. “GVHBA will benefit greatly from his impressive business experience and well-honed technology skills. I am leaving the association in very capable hands.”

Moving into the ensuite bathrooms, the custom shaker-style vanities and stone countertops are cool and modern, complemented by the deep soaker tub perfect for relaxing in and the oversized glazed ceramic tile flooring. Most floorplans feature his-and-hers sinks, a convenient feature that demonstrates Woodbridge’s commitment to quality and customer service. The ceramic tile surrounds are chic, while the huge vanity mirrors are ready to show you in the most flattering light. “These are thoughtfully designed

plans with many standard features you’d expect to pay extra for,” says McClean. “There’s loads of quality from a proven and trusted builder.” Pre-registration is open online, and already there has been a great mix of demographics looking at the homes, McClean says. “It will be a new community. Much like a residential street, it will have all ages.” Homes start at $369,900. For more information, visit www.liveatniche.ca or call 604-535-5511. The presentation centre will hold its grand opening on Sept. 29, and will be open Saturday to Thursday between noon and 5 p.m., located at 3039 156th Street, Surrey.

Relaxing in South Surrey

Finding your Niche with Woodbridge Homes by Kerry Vital

Woodbridge Homes is bringing an intimate community to South Surrey with its townhome development, Niche. Surrounded by green space, you will feel instantly relaxed as soon as you turn into the driveway of your new home. “A creek runs through the property and it is adjacent to a protected green belt on two sides,” says sales manager Tucker McClean. “It’s my favourite feature – sets it apart from all others, tucked away, yet close to everything.” The two-, three- and four-bedroom townhomes are located in the Morgan Heights area, close to everything that you could possibly need. Shopping and restaurants at Morgan Crossing and Grandview Corners, schools and leisure activities at the Morgan Creek golf course are all just minutes away. Easy access to Highway 99 means you can be on your way to downtown Vancouver, the Vancouver International Airport or

the U.S. border in just moments. Outside, the architecture reminds you of Cape Cod, with wooden gates, window boxes and pitched roofs. The landscape is truly green, making you feel like you’re in the middle of your own private oasis. The homes include large patios and decks, so you’ll be able to spend as much time as you’d like outside without having to leave your home. Adding a natural gas barbecue connection is an extra option, for when you’re in a grilling mood. Inside, the nine-foot ceilings on the main level and huge windows lend a sense of space to the home. The open floorplans are perfect for entertaining, with plenty of room for dinner parties or games nights. Wood-laminate flooring throughout the main living areas is beautiful and welcoming, while the trackless nylon carpeting on the stairs and throughout the upper hallways and bedrooms lend a sense of warmth to the proceedings. The kitchens feature stone countertops and classic shaker-style cabinetry, and are complemented by under-cabinet lighting and a ceramic and glass-tile backsplash. The breakfast bars and/or kitchen islands (depending
