Liberal ‘rock star’ packs Richmond ballroom Justin Trudeau makes stop in Richmond on day-old leadership tour by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Justin Trudeau packed a hotel ballroom with supporters Wednesday night in Richmond, one day after announcing his bid for the leadership of the federal Liberal party. Organizers estimated over 1,000 people jockeyed for position in the largest room of the Radisson Vancouver Airport Hotel to hear the 40-year-old former school teacher. In his half-hour speech, the MP for the Montreal riding of Papineau focused on national unity. “The key to Canadian unity is a shared sense of purpose—so hard to define, yet so deeply felt,” he said. “That when British Columbians do well, it creates opportunities for Quebecers. That when Quebecers create and innovate, it echoes across the country and around the world.” He acknowledged there are “a few Quebecers” who want to create their own country. “I’m a Quebecer, and I want to build that country too,” he said. “For me, that country goes from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Great Lakes to the Great Bear.” He also told the diverse crowd the road to rebuilding the Liberal Party of Canada, which has just 35 of 308 seats in the House of Commons, will be a long one. He said leadership change alone won’t fix the party’s woes. “My candidacy may shine a few extra lights upon us…but what we do with that opportunity is up to us. When Canadians tune in we need to prove to them that…we are 100 per cent focused on the future—and not the future of our party, the future of our country.” Among those who came to see Trudeau was Joe Peschisolido, a former MP who last ran in Richmond for the Liberals in May 2011, when Conservative Alice Wong won with 58.4 per cent of the vote. Peschisolido believes Trudeau will reinvigorate the party. “I think Canadians are going to be surprised

that this rock star also has substantive issues [to raise].” Peschisolido acknowledged that “things are not good” with the party after it lost 42 seats in the 2011 election. “We have to clarify for the Canadian public where we stand and what our values and principles are,” he said.

Adrian Dix pledges competitive candidates ‘Alternance in democracy a good thing,’ says NDP leader by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter NDP leader Adrian Dix said Liberal strongholds like Richmond and Kelowna haven’t always fielded competitive candidates during the provincial election. That’s something that’s going to change next year. “I think you’re going to be very, very pleased,” Dix said following his address to the Richmond Chamber of Commerce on Thursday morning at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel. Dix spoke about how Richmond has seen extraordinary growth, with more jobs in Richmond than people. He said no matter the outcome of next year’s provincial election, government needs to work together to address the issues that are challenges today. “I think that alternance in democracy is a good thing. Whether we’re elected or not, we also have to work together after the election, no matter what the result.” Provincial investment and economic growth are crucial for the future of the province, Dix said

Asked whether the business community is ready for an NDP-led government, Dix noted that his father was a small-business owner in Vancouver for more than 40 years, and his brother is an entrepreneur. “I understand the challenges of small business,” he said. Asked about the NDP’s chances in Richmond, Dix said he’s committed to fielding competitive candidates all across the province. “We’re going to compete everywhere. We’re going to run great candidates.” Dix said he enjoyed the tough questions that were tossed his way at Thursday’s gathering. Barry Grabowski, chair of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors, said: “Business people around British Columbia are concerned about a change in government and the Richmond Chamber of Commerce felt it was important to invite Mr. Dix to speak to our membership about what an NDP government would look like. “In his speech, Mr. Dix discussed the fiscal restraints of the times, the need for more skilled workers and the current state of the democratic process in our province. The message was positive but we at the Chamber look forward to seeing a fully laid out, detailed platform in the lead up to the next general election.”

Residents urged to connect with nature City supports David Suzuki Foundation initiative to get families outside by Christine Lyon Contributor Richmond families are being encouraged to get out and enjoy the crisp fall weather before winter sets in. On Wednesday (Oct. 3) at Richmond Nature Park, Mayor Malcolm Brodie announced Richmond is the first city in Canada to join a David Suzuki Foundation initiative which hopes to get 5,000 families outside this season. Speaking to a gathering that included a Grade 6/7 class from Mitchell Elementary School, Brodie said the Family Challenge Campaign is a great way for residents to connect with the environment. “It reminds us that we need a healthy environment in order to live healthy lives and encourages families to get outside and be active. It’s also a great way to bring the family together for activities that are both fun and meaningful,” he said. To encourage people to spend more time outside,

Mitchell Elementary School students joined Mayor Malcolm Brodie in walk around Richmond Nature Park.

the David Suzuki Foundation has created a four-week challenge asking families to do four simple outdoor activities that have them explore their neighbourhoods and connect to nature. Suggested activities include visiting the local farmers’ market, hiking through the fall colours, and looking for ponds, streams and puddles in the neighbourhood. “The City of Richmond ac-

cepts the challenge and then in turn challenges all the other communities in Canada to join us,” Brodie said. Peter Robinson, CEO of the David Suzuki Foundation, said the Family Challenge Campaign is of vital importance to his organization. “We can’t actually talk about the importance of environmental issues and energy issues unless the folks that we’re trying to communicate

with have a much deeper sense of what it is that we’re trying to talk about,” he said. Robinson cited a recent survey which found 70 per cent of Canadian youth spend an hour or less outside each day. Meanwhile, youth of the same age spend about eight hours in front of a screen each day. The foundation has found that if youth spend time outside when they’re young, they’re 20 per cent

more likely to explore nature on their own as adults. Following the announcement, the Mitchell Elementary School students joined Brodie and Robinson for a guided walk around the nature park. “The kids that are here today, their experience in nature will be the experience that they reflect on and hold as they become adults and then move through adulthood,” Robinson said.

City to launch review of library services City hall is looking to spend up to $110,000 on a consultant to draft a long range plan for Richmond Public Library. According to a new request for proposal, the library’s branches are “inadequate” in size to meet current demand. Council authorized the review earlier this year, in part because of the growing use of digital devices to access information. Changing demographics have also prompted the review, as Richmond boasts the highest proportion of foreignborn residents, 57 per cent, among Canadian cities. Approximately half of Richmond’s population has a personal library card, and 80 per cent of residents use the library. Richmond’s library is the most used among large urban libraries in Canada, according to the city. Richmond has five public library branches, the largest being Brighouse at the Richmond Cultural Centre. —by Matthew Hoekstra

Birch, Hynes’s lawyer, said the outcome could have been much worse. Richmond provincial court Judge Dennis Schmidt said much of what happened could have been prevented by the Montreal Police and the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority. But he pointed to Hynes forgetting to obtain a licence to relocate his weapon, to the fact he failed to put a trigger lock on the weapon, and to the type of 17-round gun magazine for his Glock being illegal in Canada. He also noted that Hynes didn’t conceal the fact he had a gun when he approached a ticket agent at a Montreal airport for his flight last December to visit his daughter in B.C. Dressed in military fatigues, Hynes indicated he had the gun, as well as ammunition, and the ticket agent had him complete a required form. When he approached the security gate and mentioned the guns, which were also noted during the X-ray, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority contacted the Montreal Police for assistance. Hynes was told that he simply needed to separate the gun and ammunition in different bags, and check-in the bags, and was permitted on the airplane. A WestJet employee suggested

the weapon could be placed in a locked box, but the Montreal Police said that wasn’t necessary. Some time after the plane departed, the Montreal Police officers involved appeared to have had second thoughts about their handling of the case, and contacted the police in B.C. But somehow the communication was messed up with Lower Mainland Mounties, who arrived at Vancouver airport in large numbers, including the emergency response team, thinking that Hynes had the loaded gun as part of his carry-on luggage. Hynes was arrested by two officers who boarded the flight before anybody was allowed to depart the plane following its landing at Vancouver International Airport. In handing Hynes the sentence, Schmidt said it was important to send the community the message about the handling of firearms. “If you are careless in this way, you may lose something that you love.” Crown counsel Leandre RupertBailey also requested that Hynes DNA become part of the federal database, but Judge Schmidt didn’t see the need for that. Rupert-Bailey said during sentencing: “I certainly see no reason to send Mr. Hynes to jail for clearly being careless.”

Hot property zones giving up gains, says expert by Jeff Nagel Black Press Sagging demand from home buyers is putting downward pressure on Lower Mainland real estate prices, but mainly in areas where prices had shot up faster than the rest of the region. September home sales in Metro Vancouver were down eight per cent from August and have plunged 32.5 per cent from a year ago, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. And a composite benchmark price that tracks all residential property movement in the area is down 2.3 per cent in the past three months, or down 0.8 per cent from a year ago. That decline has been a more modest 1.8 per cent over three months and 0.1 per cent from a year ago over the entire Lower Mainland – which includes the Fraser Valley, where values have held up better. “In some areas and neighbourhoods we’re seeing price declines, especially in the areas that ran up the most,� said Tsur Somerville, director of UBC’s Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate at the Sauder School of Business. “There is a noticeable difference between this West Vancouver-Vancouver west side-Richmond grouping and everywhere else,� he said. Prices in the three oceanfront cities that had soared in 2010 and 2011 have dropped five to seven per cent from their recent peaks, he noted. The priciest district remains Vancouver’s west side,

where benchmark detached houses typically cost close to $2.1 million. That’s down 6.5 per cent from a year ago but still up almost 40 per cent over the past five years. It’s a completely different story in Maple Ridge, where a detached house typically changes hands at $468,000 – the same price as five years ago and up just over one per cent from a year ago. Demand for higher end homes has fallen off the fastest in both Metro Vancouver and the Valley. Greater Vancouver real estate board president Eugen Klein said Ottawa’s elimination of 30-year government-insured mortgages earlier this year has led to a “clear reduction in buyer demand� because the measure intended to rein in Canadian debt loads has made homes less affordable here. But Somerville doesn’t think the federal government’s tightening of mortgage rules is playing a major role. “That only applies on mortgages with a down payment of 25 per cent or less,� he said. “Nobody’s out buying a high-end home with a three per cent down payment.� Somerville said a slowdown in Lower Mainland residential market demand has been underway since last December and is being matched by flattening prices. He doesn’t detect anything likely to trigger a much deeper drop in the market. Making a career of Real Estate Sales years ago was a very positive move for me and my family. A decision that I have never looked back on. For many years now, my career has been accelerated because of my affiliation with the RE/MAX brand. Not only do I benefit from the corporate awareness of the RE/MAX name, but more importantly, so do my clients. In 2012 RE/MAX will continue to make significant investments to ensure that my clients and I are associated with the best known name in the industry! I also happen to enjoy a great local office and a manager who continues to push me to think outside the box. Thank you, Richard and your support staff! Shafik Ladha

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency now lists virtually every major grocer in B.C. as well as various smaller ones as having received recalled raw beef that came from the XL Foods plant in Brooks, Alberta. Affected products include steaks, roasts, ground beef, sausages and soup bones. For details on the recalled products, including identifying UPC codes and best-before dates, see: http://inspection.gc.ca/recalls_ XLFoods More than 1,500 products are now subject to the expanded recall, the largest affecting beef in Canadian history. There have been no

confirmed e.coli cases in B.C. linked to XL Foods, but there have been cases in Alberta. Consumers unsure if beef they have is affected are urged by the CFIA to check with their local retailer or throw it out. E.coli-contaminated food may not look or smell spoiled but can cause serious illness – including seizures, strokes or kidney damage – as well as or death in severe cases. Symptoms include severe abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea. CFIA officials shut down the XL Foods plant and say it won’t reopen until a range of corrective actions are taken.

Joyce Branscombe is one such patient. When Joyce was admitted to Richmond Hospital earlier this year, she had no idea that the pain in her side actually required major surgery. Here is her story in her own words: “I had no idea what was about to happen to me. At 9:30 p.m. on March 1st, my husband took me to Richmond Hospital. I’d been having some pain in my right side for a few days, and even after a round of antibiotics, the pain was getting worse. I was admitted, and spent the night in the hospital, wondering what could be causing the pain. As a Senior Licensing Officer for Richmond Health Services, I had worked inside Richmond Hospital for 5 years. I know how hard our health professionals work to provide the best possible care. That night, two years after my retirement, I found myself at Richmond Hospital again, seeing the hospital through new eyes – as a patient. In the morning, I went for a CT scan and an ultrasound. It turned out I had an aortic aneurysm and I needed major surgery immediately. As an added complication, I would also need a kidney bypass for the surgery to be successful. Suddenly, I felt lost, even in such familiar surroundings. Mindful of my concerns, my surgeon, Dr. Gordon Houston, took the time to clearly and carefully explain the procedure to me. His detailed explanation helped calm my nerves and made me feel more confident and

informed. After the successful 6-hour surgery, I felt much better. During the post-operative days I spent in the ICU, and then later on the 6th floor of the North Tower, the nurses continued to be understanding and kind. One of my anesthesiologists even came to check on me every day. The care of the staff was unparalleled. Still, after working for so many years in the hospital, I know how much more is needed to provide quality care. Much of the advanced medical equipment at Richmond Hospital is funded by Richmond Hospital Foundation through the support of private donors. It’s

always a struggle to balance the best care possible with the funds available. That’s why hospital staff and patients are so thankful for the donations from people in our community. I had no idea when I went to the hospital that I’d be having major surgery, and spend days recovering in the ICU. Happily, the staff at Richmond Hospital was with me every step of the way – just like they’ll be here for you when you need them. The stories of people like Joyce are what drive us to maintain a high standard of care for the people of Richmond. As we approach Thanksgiving, many of you will

T

he massive and unprecedented recall of beef that emerged from a Brooks, Alberta processing plant should cause people to pause and think about the food chain, and how demands for low consumer prices may have a long-term effect that goes far beyond this recall.

The way that meat goes from farm to the table has changed dramatically in the past 50 years. There used to be many more slaughterhouses or killing plants than there are today. They were smaller and, by today’s standards, pretty primitive. There were several in B.C., including what was once called Pacific Meats and later Intercontinental

up to 40 per cent of the beef sold in B.C. comes from that plant. That’s why the recall list is such a long one. Years ago, the much-loved Woodward’s chain used to have an annual grass-fed beef sale, from cattle on the Douglas Lake Ranch, owned by company president Chunky Woodward. It was a huge success. Grocery chains today have to offer low prices to get customers in the door, and meat prices are among the most closely-watched. Getting good value for your dollar has never been more important. But as details about the recall emerge, it seems clear that the volume of cattle moving through the Brooks plant and the sheer difficulty in keeping E.coli infections under control are major factors in this serious health issue.

And this is serious. It’s not just ground beef that has been affected, but steaks and roasts. These cuts have rarely been reported as being infection risks in the past. It is vitally important to cook meat thoroughly, and instructions about how to properly do so are readily available. But it is also important to know where your meat comes from. A push for low prices and efficiencies isn’t a bad thing, but it should never be at the expense of good health. This is particularly true for those who are most susceptible to very serious and lifelong challenges if infected by E.coli. Hopefully out of all this will come a demand by meat eaters for better information about the food they eat. —Langley Times

Packers, in South Vancouver. There were also many small slaughterhouses. B.C. farmers and ranchers produce a large supply of cattle for the meat market each year. But for the most part, they are now shipped off to huge feed lots on the Prairies for a final fattening up before being butchered. A few farmers and ranchers raise some cattle to full size and sell meat to customers or specialty butcher shops directly. In virtually all cases, this meat is more expensive — but it comes with the assurance that the final consumer knows just where the meat originated and how it has been handled. Almost every single large grocery retailer buys beef from a handful of huge plants, such as the Brooks facility. It has been estimated that

‘E

very time I go out for Chinese food, I have to throw my food ethics out the window” – is what a foodie friend said to me a couple of weeks ago.

To which I replied, candidly, “which food ethics are you talking about? Western food ethics, or Chinese ones?” I was confused. In no way do I represent all Chinese people, but growing up under my Chinese mother’s instruction, there were definitely food values that I hold dear to this very day. Eating fresh food, the fresher the better is something we were always taught. To never waste food, even a single grain of rice left behind was met with a quick retort. Learning about the different

meats, veggies and pastries for festivals and celebrations, and how each dish has a cultural history that is both rich and colourful, and often delicious. There’s been a fair amount of discussion and calls for action around Chinese food practice, for example the on-going Shark Fin issue. While it is not something that I choose to consume, a heavy-handed approach that demands another person to stop their behaviours is an inappropriate tactic. Having connected with Shark Truth, an organization that promotes education and awareness around shark conservation, I learned that their approach is one of collaboration and support. Their work is premised on mutual understanding and respect. Other groups, according to popular press, have not made these overtures or sought to have meaningful discussions with the Chinese community. Instead, they go to municipal council or organize protests outside restaurants. How does the creation of an ‘us’ versus ‘them’ dynamic serve to help anyone, let alone the sharks or other animals that we want to save? (e.g. cows, chicken, pigs). As well, an understanding of Chinese culture, or of cultures in general, may help to identify new and exciting ways for creating an inclusive food movement. A well established farmer population of SE

Eating fresh food, the fresher the better is an important lesson.

Asian and Asian descent regularly provides local veggies for the Chinatown markets. Do these long standing examples of sustainable food production hold weight in local food discussions? Are they pointed to as exemplary or successful models to be explored and built upon within the Western food economy? Often the case is that they remain invisible as the local food movement retreats into its own enclave of like-minded thinkers. For someone who works in food security, it is often easy to complain and to judge others; to say that someone else just isn’t doing enough. It is much more difficult to sit down

and make efforts to understand another person’s way of seeing and of being. Collaborative approaches, based on creating positive spaces and respect, allow all people to navigate these tricky questions and these tensions that we experience. We are all struggling with how we get to this vision of a sustainable food supply knowing that our food traditions are an intrinsic part of our cultures. It’s time to roll up our sleeves up and get to work finding where mutual interest lies and building consensus within our community about how we build a healthy, safe and environmentally sound food system. An example of how

things could work was provided as I met with a friend at Greater Vancouver Family Services about the success of her food programs. These programs allow new immigrants to practice their English in a social setting that inspires inclusion. Her participants are keen and excited to learn more about the food culture of their new home. Why are those of us who are long time residents disinterested in learning more about our multicultural neighbours and working together to a collective vision of our food future? Colin Dring is executive director at Richmond Food Security Society.

Paint your own lullaby Editor: Once you look at a painting of a sunset can you hear the gentle lullabies? The arts and culture edition was inspiring, particularly the Ted Hesketh “painting art with music” was brilliant. The touching way he said, “A beautiful landscape creating a beautiful melody,” was close to home. I can relate to the miracle of those words entirely. Everything comes to life with music’s delicate triumph giving birth to flowers in your ears. Ted Hesketh said, “Music is a celebration of nature.” Music is an art that blossoms nature to life as nature brings music to life; it is something more real and pure with simplistic essence than our three dimensional world. I want to bring to light the beauty of the world that is music and art, the wonder and passion that derives and spins our world, and I thank the arts and culture edition for doing so. Maybe next time look at the sunset and paint your own lullaby. Angelica Poversky Richmond

Looking for stolen bike Editor: So, noon, Oct. 2, there I was enjoying yet another gorgeous day riding my white Electra Townie 21 from Steveston to Minoru Seniors Centre. A couple of hours later, I emerged from my writing group to find my basket on the ground where my bike used to be (the thieves who were seen, chose not to ride around with a wicker basket on the handlebars I’m guessing!). These wheels were the means for getting me around Richmond, rain or shine. The bike is unique. If you have any information about the theft or the possible sale of my bike, the RCMP file # is RI 12-29227, their phone # 278-1212. Reward offered.

Richmond cinematographer Mark Ratzlaff ’s latest work can be seen at the Vancouver International Film Festival beginning Saturday. Ratzlaff ’s filmmaking talents are shown in Blood Relative, a documentary that follows Indian activist Vinay Shetty, who is fighting to save two young people dying from the rare disease thalassemia. The film will make its world premiere at the festival. Ratzlaff travelled to Mumbai, India along with Gemini-nominated director Nimisha Mukerji to shoot the film and tell the story of Shetty. In the 75-minute work, Shetty battles to get a 14-yearold and 24-year-old medical treatment while illustrating India’s broken health care system. Thalassemia is a preventable and treatable genetic blood disorder that has become a nationwide epidemic, with 40 million people estimated to be carriers in India, according to filmmakers. Those living with it require weekly blood transfusions. A fatal side effect is a buildup of iron. Ratzlaff has won multiple awards for his filmmaking talents including a Leo Award for the 2007 film The Porcelain Man. The Vancouver International Film Festival runs until Oct. 12. Blood Relative screens at the film festival on Oct. 6 at 6:45 p.m., Oct. 10 at 4:15 p.m. and Oct. 12 at 9:15 p.m. at Empire Granville 7 Cinemas. Tickets to the screening are $11 to $13, available at the door or in advance at viff.org, where a full festival program is available.

Life, love explored by Labradoodle in Gateway opener by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Tim Matheson photo Lisa Bunting is Kate and Mike Stack is Greg in the Gateway Theatre production of Sylvia, which opens Oct. 12 at the Minoru Park institution.

Pippa Mackie has already built an impressive acting resume having just graduated from National Theatre School in Montreal three years ago. But Labradoodle is a new one for the 24-year-old. Mackie plays the role of man’s best friend in a Gateway Theatre production of Sylvia, an A.R. Gurney play that’s remained a hit since its 1995 New York premiere starring Sarah Jessica Parker. The role is a new challenge for the Kitsilano Secondary grad—better known as a ham than a hound. She got her start

in Grade 2 when her parents realized their daughter was “that kind of girl.” The “good kids” were given the nod to perform in the school Christmas pageant, but there was young dancing Pippa, dressed as an elf and upstaging Santa. Pippa wasn’t one of the good kids, her parents were later told. She wasn’t supposed to be in the pageant. Her young acting career went up from there. Audio books—the ones with animated voices— drew her in to the world of make-believe, theatre camps cemented her love to entertain and improv sessions built her confidence. She’ll need it next

week when she makes her dogged debut in front of a Gateway audience, playing the title role in A.R. Gurney’s play, once described by a New York Times writer as a “very different ménage à trois.” See Page 18

It’s Fire Prevention Week from Oct. 9 to 13, and this year’s theme is “Have Two Ways Out.” Homeowners are urged to create a map of their home, plotting out the locations of windows and doors that could become life-saving exit routes.

Which smoke alarm is best for reducing false alarms? Smoke alarms are not all the same. By choosing the correct technology you can keep your family safe and reduce those annoying false alarms when you cook or shower. Photoelectric smoke alarms are a good choice near kitchens or in areas adjacent to bathrooms, say fire safety experts. Their sensors are best at detecting slow smouldering fires – which means you will have fewer false alarms caused by burnt toast or shower steam. Ionization smoke alarms are good for general living areas, as their sensors are best at detecting fast-flaming fires. Fire departments say that having both types of alarms installed in your home, or a combination with both types of sensors, provides the best protection. More information as well as fire safety tips can be found online at www.safeathome.ca.

Remember: Smoke alarms wear out Know the sources of carbon monoxide in Only a working smoke alarm can save your life! your home Fire Prevention Week oct. 7-14 We replace all sorts of things in our homes on a regular basis. So why is it so hard to remember that smoke (and carbon monoxide) alarms need to be replaced too? They are working 24/7/365

C

arbon monoxide has taken the lives of entire families, left scores of people with debilitating physical and mental handicaps, and, sent hundreds more to hospital.

So why do so few of us have the one inexpensive safety device in our homes that protects us from this deadly gas? “Carbon monoxide safety comes down to awareness and education,” says Carol Heller, a home safety specialist with Kidde Canada. “First you need to realize the danger is very real. Second, you need to know the potential sources of CO in your home. Many people think they don’t need a carbon monoxide alarm because they have electric baseboard heaters. But they may have a gas water heater or stove, a gas or wood fireplace, or a garage or carport attached to their house. All these are potential sources of CO.” So long as carbon monoxide is vented outside, there is no danger. But if appliances or heating systems are not properly maintained, or chimneys and vents become blocked or cracked, deadly CO can seep back into your home…and you won’t even know it. And since exposure to CO mimics the flu, many people make the mistake of thinking the symptoms they are experiencing will just “go away” in time. So they stay home from work or school hoping to get better, when exactly the opposite happens. “If you have potential sources of carbon monoxide in your home, installing protection is easy and inexpensive,” Heller says. “You can find CSA-approved carbon monoxide alarms in any hardware store that cost on average about two cents a day to operate over their lifespan.” Installing one CO alarm per storey is recommended by the National Fire Protection Association but, at a minimum, install one outside all sleeping areas. Canadians seem to prefer models that feature a continuous digital readout. “A digital readout shows you any level of CO in your home,” says Heller. “So you can take action before the gas reaches dangerous levels. Look for models where the display is continuous, not models where you need to physically push a button to get a reading. That way you get instant peace of mind every time you glance at the alarm and see its zero reading.” More CO safety tips can be found on the www. safeathome.ca web site.

so it makes sense that they don’t last forever. Fire safety officials remind us to replace all smoke alarms every 10 years. For CO alarms, they need to be replaced every 7-10 years depending on the manu-

facturer. This is true whether alarms are battery operated or hardwired. So the next time you’re in a hardware store, pick up another “decade of defense” for your family’s peace of mind.

Smoke alarms save lives “Fall back” to smart home safety As most Canadians turn back the clocks on November 4, here are some timely smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) safety tips: • When you change your clocks, test your smoke arlam. • You have less than three minutes to escape a fire. So when smoke alarms sound, everyone must know what to do and where to go. Having and practising an escape plan is essential. • Install one smoke alarm on every storey and outside bedrooms. Install inside bedrooms if you sleep with doors closed. • Ensure all smoke alarms are fully powered. Never take out batteries or remove an alarm from ceiling due to a false alarm. • If your home has any fuel-burning devices such as a gas furnace, gas water heater, gas appliances, or an attached garage or carport, install at least one CSAapproved carbon monoxide outside all sleeping areas. One per storey is recommended.

• Replace smoke alarms every 10 years, and CO alarms every 7-10 years (depending on manufacturer) whether battery operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system. Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless. So without a CO alarm, humans cannot detect its presence. Despite the average home having several potential sources of the deadly gas, studies show that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians have not installed a CO alarm. In addition to being impossible to detect, CO also has another nefarious trait. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure mimic the flu, without the fever. It is routinely responsible for thousands of clinic and hospital visits each year, and is commonly misdiagnosed. Prolonged or extreme exposure causes nausea, dizziness, confusion, the loss of physical mobility, brain damage and ultimately, death. More home safety resources can be found on the www. safeathome.ca web site.

Analysis was undertaken on almost 50,000 fires that occurred in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario over a 5-year period involving 663 fatalities. The findings demonstrated that the death rate per 1,000 fires in the absence of a present, functioning smoke alarm was 74% greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present.

Thanksgiving turkey fires cause for concern at 9-1-1 centre E -Comm’s fire dispatch team is warning families to be mindful of their turkey cooking during Thanksgiving weekend. “A turkey isn’t something you typically see on a list of household fire hazards, but we get 9-1-1 calls about ovens going up in flames all the time,” says Corey Kelso, E-Comm fire dispatcher. “The result can be devastating if you’re not careful every time you have something cooking for an extended period of time.”

E-Comm has received some odd calls to 9-1-1 before – including someone wanting to know how long to cook a turkey – but a turkey fire is no joke. In fact, it is a leading cause of spikes in 9-1-1 calls over the holidays. “A flame in your oven can start easily and escalate quickly,” says Kelso. “Oil drippings through a thin tinfoil turkey pan or bits of leftover food residue inside your oven are extremely flammable in a high temperature setting.”

Many fatal fires start at night Investigations into home fire deaths very often find that a smoke alarm did not sound. It may have been disconnected or not in working order. The batteries may have been dead, or someone may have taken them out. Smoke alone won’t necessarily wake you up. In fact, the fumes could put you into an even deeper sleep. Often, victims never wake up. Se-

niors will often need assistance from family members to put safety measures into place. As well, family members are in the best position to reinforce the precautions necessary to help their loved ones prevent or respond to a fire. Focus on these six priorities to help aging family members protect themselves against fire in the home.

■ INSTALL smoke alarms inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. ■ Larger homes may need ADDITIONAL smoke alarms to provide enough protection. ■ For the best protection, INTERCONNECT all smoke alarms so when one sounds they all sound. ■ An IONIZATION smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires and a PHOTOELECTRIC smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both types of alarms or combination ionization and photoelectric alarms (also known as dual sensor alarms) are recommended. ■ Smoke alarms should be INSTALLED away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a cooking appliance. ■ REPLACE all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.

Actor plays a dog From Page 13 Sylvia gives us Greg, a disgruntled, middle-aged man stuck in a lifeless marriage. One day he returns to his apartment with Sylvia, a stray Labradoodle. He insists on keeping her but his wife Kate isn’t impressed. Their relationship gets testy when Sylvia the poor ol’ pooch sticks around and becomes the centre of Greg’s attention. “Sylvia is maybe the start of how a marriage can be broken up, potentially,” said Mackie in a post-rehearsal interview this week. “She comes in and breaks up the balance between husband and wife. Husband wants dog and wife does not, and creates a whole whack of conflict.” Mackie’s canine character allows the audience to explore the PIPPA MACKIE depths of a long marriage—and hear what the dog thinks and feels about walks, furniture and other four-legged friends. “I love a challenge,” said Mackie. “I love trying to personify how a dog moves, or how you can use your own body to translate what a dog does. There’s so many funny things that dogs do.” No doubt preparing for Sylvia has been a tad different from the actor’s past roles. “It’s very physical. I wasn’t only thinking about what she says, but how she uses her body to say something, and just observing dogs and seeing all that they do and trying to make it my own.” Before arriving at Gateway for hind-leg rehearsals, Mackie was in Edmonton and Winnipeg for fringe festivals, performing in the two-hander The Progressive Polygamists, a show she wrote with Emmelia Gordon. The short play takes a satirical spin on the “rather dark community” of Bountiful, B.C. The play is an example of the versatility of the multi-medium actor. “I love a good satire. Some of my favourite plays, books and audio books all have this new spin. They take something that people perceive as scary or taboo, and you use comedy to reveal what the issue actually is.” Mackie, also a star of a number of short films, has found more success with Bait, her 10-minute entry at January’s PuLL festival that could soon become a fulllength film. She’ll be back at Gateway in April 2013 with Blackbird Theatre’s production of Don Juan, which the company will first mount at The Cultch in Vancouver. Between runs of the Molière adaptation she’ll star in Pi Theatre’s Terminus at Performance Works. Each play couldn’t be more different than Sylvia, for which she’s dedicated her performance to Maggie— her family’s Jack Russell terrier who died a month ago. Dogs, Mackie said, are natural comedians, and watching her pet’s antics for 17 years gave her material for Sylvia far greater than humour. “They’re a part of your family. They’re a part of your life.”

ariety is the spice of life, and for an increasing number of beer lovers, that spice comes in the form of craft beers. But beyond just the variety, it’s the quality that more beer lovers are seeking. And they’re treating craft beers more like wine. “Craft beer is the single only growth segment of the beer industry in North America,” said Grant Bryan of O’Hare’s Gastropub and Liquor Store. And while craft beers aren’t currently a huge revenue driver at his pub, Bryan said the year-overyear growth is “huge”, amounting to between 40 and 50 per cent in recent years. At this pace, craft beers project to become a “chunkier segment” of his revenues. Asked what’s driven the popularity of craft beers, Bryan said consumers are demanding more as we mature as a culture. And while consumers

single servings of bottled craft beers, which are pricier. “That wouldn’t have happened three or four years ago,” he said. The growth of craft beers is good news for B.C. and Canadian craft beer breweries, Bryan said. Vancouver Island boasts many of the country’s finest. “They’re wicked, really good stuff. They’re hand made and made with love.”

RICHMOND’S CRAFT BEER DESTINATION

And while craft beers aren’t for everyone, Bryan said: “For those who enjoy it, they really enjoy it.” October is craft beer month in B.C., and to celebrate the burgeoning following for microbrewed beer, each Friday a different theme will invite locals to sample what’s on tap.

Bantam Raiders activate thanks to nine-man football by Don Fennell Sports Editor It’s a game whose time has come. Nine-man football—a variation of the traditional 11- (American) and 12man (Canadian) version— has been around for at least two decades, but only in recent years has it really started to catch on. “Most importantly it allows kids to play (who would otherwise not be),” says Richmond Minor Football Association president Ravi Parmar, whose organization this season introduced the nine-man game at the Bantam level. “We were unable to field a team last year because we only had 11 boys, but this year, with about 14, we had what we believe is the minimum needed along with the expectation of adding at least a couple of other players.” Parmar, who is offensive co-ordinator of the Raiders, says had there not been a team this year those players either would have had to sit out another season or play elsewhere. He believes many would have simply quit football. Instead, the Raiders are not only playing this season but tearing up the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s nineman Bantam Division with a perfect 5-0 record

going into this weekend’s scheduled break. Last Sunday against the Vancouver Trojans at Minoru Park, the Raiders dominated the final two quarters en route to a 31-12 victory. They broke a 12-12 halftime deadlock by scoring three touchdowns on the final four series. The Raiders are fortunate

to have several talented and experienced players in their lineup, including quarterback Tyler Moxin who has played football since the Flag Division. “He’s a leader on the team and acutely aware of what’s happening on the field and can change up the play at any time,” says Parmar.

Additionally, three members of Hugh Boyd Secondary’s junior varsity team have also committed to the Raiders. The contributions of Jacob Tubajon, Gabe Saklofsky and Darby Kwan have been invaluable. “These guys really believe in themselves right now. I don’t think they care

whether it’s nine- or 12man football, they believe they are the best team,” says Parmar. It was important to try to bring a winning attitude to the organization. Overall, Raider teams have struggled the last few seasons. But the play of the Bantams—most of whom are eligible to return again

octobeR is PoweR smaRt month. waste less PoweR and money.

next season—seems to have also inspired their clubmates as well as five of the six Richmond teams won last weekend. “A lot of the younger kids are anxious to wear the white Raider jersey which means they’re a senior,” says Parmar. For most, that’s at least a few seasons from now.

But it suggests officials are at least on the right track as they rebuild the Raider nation. •In other games last weekend, Richmond’s Atoms outscored Royal City Hyacks 40-12; Richmond’s Peewees doubled Langley Cowboys 12-6; and Richmond’s Midgets lost 36-0 to the Vernon Magnums.

If you’re looking for a workout, the Steve Nash Sports Club is available, or you can head out for a walk or run around the neighbourhood. Retail therapy is also nearby, whether you’re looking for some bargains at Winners or are in the mood to splurge on some delicious

treats at Mink A Chocolate Cafe or Menchies Frozen Yogurt. “There’s just about everything you need here,” Woolley says.

With all the beautiful features of the other Summit House homes as well as some new details of their own, these limited-edition lofts are a cut above the rest. “These aren’t typical condos,” says Bryan Woolley, president of Fingerprint Strategies Inc. “They’re not cookiecutter at all.” Built by Larco Investments, the two-bedroom homes feature the master bedroom and living areas on the first floor with a loft on the second floor that can be used for a bedroom, media room, library, art studio or a romantic retreat. The spacious layouts are open and inviting, and feature plenty of room for entertaining or relaxing. The homes range from 1,026 to 1,261 square feet, and include huge windows to allow in plenty of natural light. “These are the only lofts available in South Surrey,” says Woolley. “There’s been a lot of interest in these great floorplans.” In fact, nearly half of the 13 lofts have already been sold. Some of the beautiful features in the lofts include gas cooktops, soft-close cabinetry in the kitchen and incredibly high ceilings at almost 22 feet. Gorgeous hardwood laminate floors are included throughout the main living areas, while the bedrooms feature carpeting that is perfect for sinking your toes into. Electric fireplaces are cozy and inviting, while the large outdoor patios and balconies give you your own outdoor space. The cabinetry and gas cooktop aren’t the only great things about the kitchens. The 1 3/4-inch quartz countertops and glass or ceramic tile backsplash are chic and modern, while the stainless-steel appliances are a gourmet’s dream. Homeowners at The Summit House are able to take advantage of some pretty lovely amenities, including a private rooftop plaza that features a community garden, barbecue and fire pit. However, one of the best features at The Summit House is the amazing mountain views from many of the suites. They have proven inspirational in many ways. “The lofts have been attracting artists and other creative types,” says Woolley. The Morgan Crossing village has

been the biggest draw to the homes, Woolley says. With tons of shopping, eateries and leisure activities in the area, there is never a shortage of things to do. “It’s so convenient,” he says, adding “it feels like a real community.” Even dogs will find their perfect place in Morgan Crossing, with its Paws Crossing dog park. The village is perfect for those looking to meet people. Larco regularly holds community events, including hockey tournaments and fashion shows. “There is a very eclectic mix of owners,” says Woolley. The range of demographics include a 19-year-old who bought the place on his own to a 92-year-old who enjoys the vibrant atmosphere of Morgan Crossing. The convenience factor is really an integral part of the community,

These are the only lofts available in South Surrey,” says Bryan Woolley, president of Fingerprint Strategies.

sports Richmond Soccer set to host annual Thanksgiving classic by Don Fennell Sports Editor Revolution and Barcelona will both be looking for repeat performances at this weekend’s annual Richmond Soccer Association Thanksgiving Tournament. Revolution, a local under-16 girls’ team, won last year’s under-15/16 bronze division title with a 2-1 victory over the Richmond Strykers on penalty kicks and will play for the same honour starting Saturday at 8:30 a.m. at Minoru Park against the Richmond Wave. The top two teams will play in the final at 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Barcelona won the under-12 bronze division boys’ title last year and hopes to do the same this weekend at the under-13 level. This year’s Thanksgiving tournament features a record number of visiting girls’ teams. “We’ve got three teams coming in from Kamloops, two from Penticton, one from Victoria and several from Chilliwack—which normally make it an event and tend to stay over in local hotels,” says Stewart MacPherson, chair of the girls’ draw.

A new community in bloom. Plant your roots in Richmond. Azalea & Magnolia, Phases 1 & 2, are now under construction. 1 bedroom homes from $253,800 2 bedroom homes from $299,800

Don Fennell photo Celebrating a goal during last Sunday’s 3-3 league draw with North Shore Shooting Stars, Chrissy Kirk (centre) and her Richmond Revolution teammates look to defend their Richmond Thanksgiving tournament title this weekend.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity (for local teams) to get on the pitch and play teams they wouldn’t normally go up against in their leagues,” says Tania Webster, chair of the boys’ draw. “We get many year-overyear repeat entries, including a team from the Yukon which has been coming for a few years now. Richmond Soccer is fortunate to have great infrastructure in place, quality fields, well-trained referees and parent volunteers, that allows us to successfully host

an event this big.” The Yukon Strikers will play in the under-13 bronze division and face three local teams—Barcelona 10 a.m. Saturday, Hornets 1 p.m. Saturday, and Marlins noon Sunday—all at South Arm Park. In all, 63 girls’ teams (17 of those representing Richmond) and 93 boys’ teams (36 of those from Richmond) are participating in the tournament. The teams are from under-11 to under-18 at the gold, silver and bronze division levels.
