Violent crime drops but not business break-ins by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

Martin van den Hemel photos Finding people driving while distracted did not prove difficult during a recent visit to No. 3 Road and Westminster Highway.

Drivers openly flouting cell-phone laws RCMP, ICBC want attitude change by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Distracted driving was the focus of a crackdown last week by Richmond Mounties in a partnership with the Insurance Corporation of B.C. dubbed Project Swoop. But The Richmond Review at-

tempted to gauge the prevalence of distracted driving during 90 minutes of quiet observation one weekday afternoon recently at No. 3 Road and Westminster Highway. Finding people driving while distracted did not prove difficult. While it was mostly cellular phones that were a problem, many who pulled up to a red light at the intersection could be seen fiddling with maps or books. One woman was checking what appeared to be her lengthy gro-

cery shopping receipt. The male driver of a new Hyundai Tuscon SUV gets mixed reviews for wearing a bluetooth earpiece, but a big thumbs down for fiddling with his phone while pulling up to the red light. And while The Review couldn’t capture photographic evidence of the driver of a dark blue BMW SUV fiddling with the backlit screen of her phone or music player as she ran a yellow light, many others were caught red-handed. Many tried to hide their behav-

iour, holding their phones below shoulder-level, near the bottom of their vehicle’s steering wheel and nearly out of view for passersby. Others were chatting in plain view, talking via speaker phone into the base of their iPhones, while the driver of a black BMW 740i was kind enough to roll down his passenger side window as The Review photographed him with his cell phone, earphones trailing from his ears to his iPhone.

Violent crime overall is down in 2012 compared to a year earlier, according to the latest figures from the Richmond RCMP. In a report to be presented Wednesday afternoon to Richmond city council’s community safety committee, the statistics indicate that assaults and sexual offences were both down, contributing to a 15.5-per-cent drop in violent crime through the end of August, 2012. While assaults were down 12.6 per cent, and assault-with-a-weapon incidents fell 17 per cent, and sexual offences dropped 13.5 per cent, the notable exception was robberies, which rose 12.2 per cent. Property-related crime has also been down this year, falling 5.8 per cent, including a 22.8 per cent drop in motor vehicle thefts, and a 35.7 per cent reduction in metal theft. But business break-ins were up 15 per cent, as was theft, up 7.4 per cent. Arson-related fires were down 38.6 per cent, as were drug-related files, falling 17.5 per cent. In an effort to address business break-ins, the RCMP’s new Volunteer Business Watch program was launched in July at the new City Centre Community Police Station. The program involves volunteers going door-to-door to businesses, delivering crime-prevention information packages including a business watch newsletter and brochure. Volunteers offer to install a height strip at the business, and collect e-mail information for including in the new Commercial Break and Enter e-mail alert distribution program, which indicates whenever a break-in occurs in their neighbourhood.

Teenager repeatedly stabbed at Hamilton house party on Friday

Local draws with heart

Police still searching for victim’s attacker

Staff Reporter

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A 17-year-old girl was taken to hospital late Friday night with multiple non-life-threatening stab wounds following a house party in Hamilton. Around 11 p.m., Richmond Mounties were called to a report of a stabbing at a house near the intersection of Gilley Road and Smith Drive, where a house party was being held. Richmond RCMP said none of the injuries were serious. Investigators were unable to identify or locate her attacker, despite the assistance of the RCMP police dog team, and the RCMP helicopter Air One. Anyone with information about the stabbing, or who was at the house party and still hasn’t spo-

ken to police, is asked to call the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 •Richmond RCMP are hoping to talk to the Asian driver of a silver or gold minivan who was involved in a crash with a young cyclist at the Broadmoor Shopping Centre on Tuesday morning. RCMP Cpl. Annie Linteau said Mounties were contacted about the accident around 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2. The 11-year-old victim sustained superficial cuts to both of his legs. The driver of the minivan stopped and asked if the young boy was alright, but left the area without contacting the police or leaving her contact information. The driver is described as an Asian woman, about 40 years old, was wearing a black jacket and spoke perfect English. She was driving a gold or silver coloured minivan. Police are asking the driver to come forward. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Richmond RCMP Const. Ng at 604-278-1212.

by Don Fennell When Tina Huang’s mom encouraged her to enter the Richmond Chinese Community Society’s annual children’s drawing contest last year, she was only too happy to oblige. But the 12-year-old certainly didn’t expect to place third in the local competition, let alone earn first-place honours at the international level. “My mom told me about the contest I was excited, but I just wanted to participate,” Huang said. “To win was unbelievable.” Huang won in the junior (aged three to 11) category in which the theme was Healthy Heart Family. Huang was presented with a special silver plate Sunday at the Richmond Chinese Community Society’s 2012 drawing contest. Healthy Heart Family was again the theme of the junior category, with a smoke-free community the theme for the senior group (ages 12 to 17). The goal of the event is to promote a healthy lifestyle and is held in support of the International Chinese Heart Health Network’s World Heart Day. Winning drawings will be sent to the Don Fennell photo international drawing competition final which Tina Huang’s drawing won first place in an international drawing will also feature drawings from places such as Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore and Toronto. contest.

A comedy about people who think their pets are human.

Don’t respond to calls or texts while driving

Richmond paying more for integrated police services

From Page 1 RCMP Sgt. Rob Quilley, head of the Richmond Road Safety Unit, said it’s young drivers, mostly 20 to 30 year olds, who aren’t getting the message that driving while texting or chatting with a phone in hand, is hazardous, can be deadly, and is most certainly against the law. Last month, Quilley’s squad issued 170 electronic device violations, while general duty officers handed out another 70, he said. Using a cell phone at red lights and in stop-and-go traffic is also illegal, Quilley pointed out, and under the province’s distracted driving laws specific to electronic devices, comes with a $167 ticket. Quilley pointed to an American study that noted that after the enactment of legislation prohibiting cell phone use, rates of crashes actually increased. That’s thought to be because people tried to hide their use of phones more, down to out-of-view levels from other drivers, meaning their eyes were shifted further away from the roadway. According to Mounties, one quarter of fatal crashes in B.C. over the past five years were attributed to distracted driving. It’s now the third leading cause of driving fatalities in the province.

Surrey gets great value, Richmond not so much, says staff report

Gateway Theatre / Richmond Review 10.333 x 2” / CMYK / 17 September 2012 Keith > rare design inc: 604.505.4100

During last week’s enforcement, six people were charged with distracted driving, with another 35 charged with speeding, including one driver who was going down Russ Baker way at 110 kilometres per hour in a 50-kilometre-per-hour zone. But electronics aren’t the sole culprit when it comes to distracted driving. People with pets in their laps, brushing their hair, eating bowls of noodles or cereal, Quilley has seen it all. These can be charged with driving without due care and attention, he said. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said a recent education and enforcement campaign was intended to remind drivers about the dangers of speeding and distracted driving. “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,” Turley said. Joanne Bergman, ICBC’s road safety coordinator, said: “We’re offering free downloadable ringtones that remind drivers not to respond to calls or texts while driving. We want to help change their behaviours so that our roads are safer for everyone.” •See a video of distracted drivers at richmondreview.com

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter When it comes to value for dollar, Richmond is paying out more than it receives in services from the RCMP’s five specialized integrated teams, according to a recently-prepared city staff report. And while Richmond is on the short end of the stick, Surrey is comparatively getting great value, the report states. Last month, Richmond city council’s community safety committee requested staff to analyze the RCMP’s integrated team annual report which was received at the end of August. City staff’s analysis was slated to be received for information at Wednesday af-

ternoon’s community safety committee. The report details the cost of funding the five specialized integrated teams: Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, Integrated Forensic Identification Services, Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service, Integrated Police Dog Services and Emergency Response. Richmond’s expenditure for the teams has grown from $2.69 million in 2008/09 to $3.35 million in 2011/12, and is expected to jump another 11 per cent to $3.72 million for the 2012/13 year. In a comparison of major cities over the past two years (Burnaby, North Vancouver, Richmond and Surrey), Richmond paid out $6.34 million between 2010/11 and 2011/12, but received just $5.09 million in services, a shortfall of $1.25 million. Surrey, meanwhile, paid out $19.46 million while it received $24.85 million in

services, meaning Surrey received a discount of $5.39 million. Joan Clarke, manager of finance community safety for the City of Richmond, wrote in the report: “Over the past three years, on average, the city has paid $371,431 annually more for the integrated teams than the value of the services received and thus, future annual monitoring will take place.” Clarke noted that during the recent contract renewal negotiations with the RCMP, the city requested that the province fund the integrated teams 100 per cent. Currently, the homicide team is funded on a 70:30 basis between cities and the province, with all other teams being 90:10 between cities and Ottawa. “Staff will continue to examine, based on historical usage, whether the existing cost sharing formula with other municipalities is equitable,” Clarke wrote.

Crime rate drops on transit system Chief says force will still be relevant after fare gates by Jeff Nagel Black Press Crime against passengers and staff on TransLink’s transit system fell 17 per cent in the first half of the year, according to Transit Police. The change reflects a drop in reports of theft, assaults and sexual assaults. Property crime on the system, including vandalism, dropped four per cent from 2011. Chief Neil Dubord acknowledged crime rates are generally falling in North America, but called the drop in reported crime significant and noted it was accompanied by a 10 per

patrolling buses. Officers will still need to conduct fare checks on SkyTrain inside the gated areas, he added, because some some fare evaders will come through the gates two or three at a time or crawl under or over the paddle turnstiles. He rejected suggestions from critics that the force could be dismantled and its duties handled jointly by existing RCMP and municipal police forces. He said the original case for a standalone force remains valid —that shared coverage by other forces would end up being spotty and public safety would suffer. Dubord said the force has redoubled its efforts to control costs. Improved scheduling has halved overtime costs, he said, adding that’s expected to save $300,000 to $400,000 this year

cent improvement in surveyed passengers’ perception of safety on the system. Transit Police investigations led to more than 500 charge recommendations to Crown counsel in the first six months of 2012. Officers also arrested 530 fugitives wanted in other jurisdictions on outstanding warrants. The force conducted 1.4 million fare checks in the first nine months of 2012 as TransLink stepped up efforts to reduce fare evasion. Dubord rejected suggestions that the 167-officer force— whose budget is about $29 million—will have much less to do once fare gates now being installed at SkyTrain stations are activated next year. “Once fare gates go in our goal is to continue to protect our passengers,” he said, adding that will likely mean more time

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A 36-year-old man has pled guilty in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster to the 2011 murder of mother-of-two Yating “Lancy” Hu. Zhongming James Mou, Hu’s estranged husband, pled guilty Tuesday after-

noon to the second-degree murder in Hu’s death, according to Integrated Homicide Investigation Team’s Sgt. Jennifer Pound. “Lancy Hu is missed by her family including her parents and her young boys,” Pound said. “This tragedy will require endless healing for those who loved her. IHIT works tirelessly for homicide vic-

tims and their families who forever have their lives changed.” The body of Hu, a Coquitlam mother-of-two, was found in the waters off the west part of Steveston in late August of 2011 by two boaters who were out fishing, and spotted a suitcase. According to Pound, Hu and Mou were experienc-

ing marital problems and Hu moved out of the family home in Coquitlam and to a home in Burnaby. But she was last seen leaving the Coquitlam condo she once shared with Mou in July of 2011, and he was the last person to see her alive. The couple’s two children had been in the care of Mou’s parents, who report-

edly live in Richmond. Investigators initially suspected foul play. Although they had discovered Hu’s body in late August of 2011, they did not publicly disclose that information, and instead conducted their investigation. Mou was initially charged with first-degree murder last September.

EDITORIAL: Cell phones a deadly distraction

I

magine a police officer firing his pistol into a crowded theatre while blindfolded.

That’s essentially what drivers do everyday when they fiddle with their iPhones and Blackberries on busy streets and highways. When Apple’s genius founder Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone many years ago, he probably never envisioned that the use of his world-changing gadget could have deadly consequences. Now people will say that guns don’t kill people. It’s the person who pulls the trigger that’s responsible. Indeed, cell phones won’t kill, and it’s the owners of iPhones and iPods who need to get their heads in the game when it comes to driving. Every time they’re behind the wheel, they’re in complete control of a 3,000-pound bullet, that commonly hurtles down the street at 50 kilometres per hour. Doing this while peeking occasionally at the cell phone in one’s lap is homicidal. The law calls it distracted driving, but when it involves a deadly pile-

Distracted driving is becoming a major problem.

up, it’s really negligent homicide. So what’s the solution? Much like has been done with drinking and driving, the prospect of losing one’s car might just be enough to convince cell phone users to ignore

those rings. Or how about losing one’s licence. And to top that off, how about a public shaming. It’s just a matter of time before a pedestrian, or a child in a car’s baby seat, becomes a victim of someone’s selfish

behaviour. No phone call is worth a person’s life. If it’s so important, buy a BlueTooth device that offers hands-free operation. But as could be seen in one instance, an iPhone user with a BlueTooth

earpiece still couldn’t be bothered to keep his hands off his gadget. If you use your iPhone while driving, shame on you. If you see someone doing that, let them know it’s anything but cool.

M

y column on skills training a couple of weeks ago gave short shrift to the NDP position: tax the banks and hand out grants for women’s studies, sociology and other worthless pursuits, while skilled jobs go begging.

That’s a pretty crude caricature, so I sat down with NDP leader Adrian Dix in his legislature office last week to get a better sense of his thinking on

the subject. Dix has been devoting a lot of time lately to skills training, in trades particularly. He meets frequently with business people now, and his recent speeches emphasize that every one of them talks about the growing shortage of skilled employees. Dix credits Premier Christy Clark and jobs minister Pat Bell with making some good moves recently, announcing equipment upgrades for vocational programs around the province. He says it’s because the NDP have been “pounding away at them for eight months” about freezing advanced education spending in their March budget. Dix calls that a crucial mistake and predicts the government will reverse it soon. “So I think, if we’re going to have a mission for four years as a government, if we’re elected, this is the mission: to start to address the skills shortage,” he told me.

In his speech to the recent municipal convention, and again at an NDP provincial council meeting, Dix zeroed in on B.C.’s apprenticeship system. Since the B.C. Liberals took it from trade unions and set up a Crown corporation called the Industry Training Authority in 2004, the completion rate for apprentices has fallen to 37 per cent, he said. Dix assured me he isn’t proposing to “blow up” the ITA, or hand control back to unions. They will have “a voice,” along with business. Speaking to the NDP executive, Dix referred to Phil Hochstein, president of the non-union Independent Contractors and Businesses’ Association, as the symbol of trades training decline. Not surprisingly, Hochstein has a different take. The 37 per cent figure is misleading, Hochstein said, because under the ITA there are currently 32,000 apprentices in the system, twice as many as when

it was union controlled. Many drop out in the first year, and Alberta claims a better completion rate because they don’t start counting until the second year. And when Dix touts Alberta’s “mandatory” trade system, Hochstein said he means returning to a system where all work is restricted to journeymen or registered apprentices of that trade. “What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training system of the entire construction industry,” Hochstein said. “So multiskilling, multi-tasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and it’s stuck in the old craft system of training.” The marketplace has spoken on that restrictive system, he said, and unionized construction is down to about five per cent of the market, based on payroll. Hochstein said the NDP talks a great game about

getting more young people into trades. But when unions have the upper hand, they will always favour seniority. A quota of two apprentices per journeyman means another one can’t be hired. Dix agreed with me that the public school system has over-emphasized university, to the detriment of not just industrial trades but lab techs, chefs and other skilled workers that are in short supply. As B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair recently noted, tradesmen themselves often don’t encourage their kids, because they’ve been told all their lives that they are “tool monkeys” in a deadend job. And would NDP student grants be targeted to need? Dix’s answer was a definite maybe. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press. tfletcher@ blackpress.ca

letters Seatbelts save lives, but can be dangerous too Editor: Re: “Saturday marks 10 year anniversary of Const. Jimmy Ng’s death.” The photo of the police car is exactly why seatbelt laws can be a death sentence and should be worn at the discretion of the driver. They do save lives but they can also kill. I was in the same type accident. Fear got me out of the seat and on to the driver at the last second. Fortunately, it happened before seatbelt laws took effect in Canada in 1976. Accidents happen fast and, take my word for this, you don’t have time to consider unbuckling your seatbelt. Gary Nelson Richmond

Don’t reduce bus service Editor: We are always being encouraged to take public transit instead of driving, but how can we be convinced to take the bus after being told that bus service may be reduced? A few weeks ago, TransLink announced that bus service may be reduced for the next few years. Transit is a convenient and environmentallyfriendly way to travel, but what would happen if bus service was cut down? What would happen to the people who rely on transit every day? What about people who went for a night out and needed a safe way to get home? Many people would be affected, and taking the bus would no longer be convenient for them. Some people may

even have to arrange for alternatives to taking the bus. The government is always encouraging us to take public transit because it is better for the environment, but if you cut down bus service, some people may go back to using their cars. Furthermore, the laws about drinking and driving is being enforced, but reduced bus service at night would mean that finding alternatives to driving would be more difficult and thus, the number of road accidents could increase. In today’s society, we should be improving our lifestyles and planning for the future, but slowing bus service won’t move anything forward. Larissa Franco Richmond

The future is yours

Richmond invites you to comment on the new 2041 Official Community Plan Background The City last updated its Official Community Plan in 1999. The new 2041 OCP Update was prepared along with extensive participation of residents, business owners and stakeholders. The process involved three major rounds of community consultation beginning in November 2009 with over 28 OCP public open houses over the three-year period, along with City-wide surveys, and online discussion forums.

After almost three years in the making, the new 2041 Official Community Plan (OCP) is undergoing final public and stakeholder review before it goes to Council for final approval. With the title, Moving Towards Sustainability, this new Official Community Plan sets the framework for Richmond’s future development to 2041. The public has a number of opportunities to learn more about the new plan and to provide comment. Why should you be interested? The OCP is a tool that helps assist Richmond City Council in managing to 2041, population and employment growth, development, housing, transportation, community amenities, infrastructure and the natural environment.

Ways to be involved • Visit www.letstalkrichmond.ca to learn more about the plan and provide comments • Attend a public open house on Saturday, Oct. 20 • Attend or make a written submission to the Public Hearing, anticipated to be Monday, November 19, 2012 (Correspondence may be sent at any time prior to the hearing to the City Clerk’s Department) City of Richmond | 6911 No. 3 Rd.

The updated plan includes • targets for Richmond’s population to grow to 280,000 by 2041, by allowing increased density in selected areas, while protecting existing single family neighbourhoods, farmland and environmentally sensitive areas • steps to support Richmond’s aging population • plans to reduce reliance on the automobile for local transportation • supporting the City’s commitments to combat climate change • and much more

The vision for the new 2041 OCP Update... is for Richmond to be a sustainable and healthy island city that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Richmond Rental Connect thanks community for supporting pilot project April 13, 2013 at Richmond Olympic Oval Bust a Move is more than a day-long fitness fundraising extravaganza. It’s a celebration and an opportunity to support the BC Cancer Foundation and life-saving breast cancer research taking place at the BC Cancer Agency

Join the Movement – Register Today! www.bustamove.ca

Editor: As the spokesperson for the pilot project “Richmond Rental Connect” I wanted to update the readership on the project and thank everyone that has given their volunteer time, expertise and services to ensure its success. Since April 2012, the Richmond Rental Connect project has co-ordinated three community engagement events for landlords owning secondary suites and tenants seeking safe and affordable housing. As well two newsletters have been distributed throughout Richmond. In September we conducted an education workshop called “Building Successful Landlord-Tenant

Relations.” Before year-end there will be one more workshop where tenants, homeowners and landlords can get together and talk over issues, challenges and solutions that will assist them in building positive long term relationships. In 2013 the project will turn to providing educational workshops and administering a housing registry where both parties can post their accommodations and needs. They will be working with community agencies to enlist tenants needing such services and will be providing continued support, information and resources through the website www.richmondrentalconnect.ca. Workshops in the coming year will be focused on the residential tenancy act, respectful communications, financial literacy, landlord mentorship and dispute resolution. The Richmond Rental Connect project would like to thank the following community groups for their generous offerings. Without them, the project could not have been successful. Thanks to the City of Richmond, Richmond Family Place, Richmond Caring Place, CHIMO Crisis Services, McNair Secondary School Culinary Arts program, Richmond Cultural Centre, Richmond Shares, Richmond Civic Engagement Network, Richmond Youth Services Agency, KAIROS, Richmond Pentecostal Church, South Arm United Church, BCGEU, CUPE Local 718, Nurse Next Door, Cooperators Insurance, BC Housing, BC Apartment Owners and Managers Association and BC Rental Housing Coalition. Thanks also to our funding sources: Vancity, Richmond Community Foundation, RBC Dominion Securities and the City of Richmond. We could not have embarked on this without their support. The project committee is truly grateful to the community of Richmond for the amazingly warm response and support the project has received. Richmond residents have shown overwhelmingly that this is the right time and the right place for Richmond Rental Connect. Thanks to you all! De Whalen Richmond

the powerplay. Specifically, a lack of production. “Our penalty killing has been great all year and quietly been a big factor for us,” says head coach Aaron Wilbur, whose team was 6-1-1 going into Tuesday’s rematch with the league-leading Delta Ice Hawks at Ladner Leisure Centre. Delta shut out Richmond 4-0 Thursday at Minoru Arenas. In contrast, the powerplay has been virtually a non-factor—at least until Saturday when it went

Sockeyes still missing key personnel from lineup

Don Fennell photo Richmond Sockeyes’ goalie Kootenay Alder made 49 saves Thursday in the Sockeyes’ 4-0 loss to Delta at Minoru Arenas.

Oval new home for karate Richmond Olympic Oval will soon become the new home of karate in Canada, hosting six competitive events over four years starting in 2014. The events include four national championships and two International competitions. “We’re very excited to secure this four-year partnership with Karate Canada,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “This will result in significant economic benefits for our community, as well as enhancing community vibrancy. It means Canada’s best athletes will be able to pursue their dreams of excellence in a world class facility and the youth of our community will have the opportunity to be inspired by and learn from those same athletes.” The Oval will play host to the annual Karate Canada National Championship– in which Canadian National team selection will take place –every January. More than 450 Canadian athletes, coaches, officials and delegates will take part in each national championship, while the event is expected to attract up to 1,500 spectators over three days of competition. In 2014 and 2017 the Oval will also host more than 230 athletes, coaches, officials and delegates from Canada, Mexico and the United States as a part of the North American Cup. See Page 17

See Page 16 Several factors out of the Sockeyes’ control also explain the team’s struggles with the man advantage. They lost three mainstays in their first few games when Justin Rai signed with the BCHL Prince George Spruce Kings, Justin Lachance retired, and Rudi Thorsteinson was sidelined by tonsillitis. Thorsteinson was only expected to be out of the lineup for two weeks but complications has changed the timeline to indefinite. “It’s not been easy on us,” says Wilbur. “Every team goes through a rough patch, but none of us have ever seen anything like this.” But he refuses to make

excuses or let current circumstances dictate. Instead, Wilbur says the player losses have provided others with unexpected opportunities—including providing some affiliate players from the Midget Division with some early-season experience. Reflecting back on Thursday’s loss to Delta, Wilbur says that while the Ice Hawks definitely outplayed the Sockeyes in all three zones, he thought his players in most instances were in good position—until they were two feet from the puck and then failed to execute. “We had trouble taking it off their stick, and when we had it they were able

sponsors will benefit the community and all of our members for years to come.” With 5,000 room nights projected to be booked at local hotels in addition to an anticipated boost to tourism, the local economic impact of the events being hosted at the Oval could be upwards of $1 million.

League-leading Sharks volley to honourable mention by Don Fennell Sports Editor A trio of provincial team players has powered the Steveston-London Sharks to an early lead in the Richmond high school senior boys’ volleyball league and earned the team honourable mention status in the latest B.C. AAA rankings. But B.C. under-16 members Mitch Jesson and six-foot-three twins Ethan and Gabriel Freund aren’t the only Sharks with bite. Opponents must also contend with Josh Lindenthaler in the middle, Kingston

Cheung, Nick Chan, Zack Pang, Marcus Yeung and Lenny Tabakman. Coming off the bench are Jacob Yeung, Forest Kong, Tian Xing Li, Nathan Ip and Matthew Lay. “These kids work very hard and have great volleyball skills, and when our mental focus is there we are a tough team to defeat,” says teachercoach Edmond Ma. The talented Sharks are 3-0 in league play as they get set to host the 2-0 Richmond Colts next Monday at 7 p.m. They defeated H.J. Cambie Crusaders three games to one in their opener Sept.

“DALI” NEEDS A GOOD HOME WITH YOU!

“DALI”, ID # 277985, NM, HOLLAND LOP CROSS, 1 YEARS 1 MONTH (APPROX) Dali’s name was inspired by his beautiful Dalmatian-like spots. He was found as a stray in Abbotsford and arrived at the Richmond SPCA via the Drive for Lives Program. He is a friendly, easy-going, and trusting rabbit. He loves his greens and needs them daily to make sure that he stays healthy. Rabbits can live as long as 12 years and the lifelong commitment will certainly be very rewarding as Dali is an affectionate guy! He requires a multi-level bunny hutch and daily exercise outside of his hutch. Remember to always supervise when he is out as he does, like all rabbits, like to chew on everything. Egg cartons and phone books make for great chew toys. Paper bags, cat toys and even baby toys can be a source of great entertainment as rabbits can get frustrated if they become bored. Dali will make a great addition to any household.

Kids try their hand at drawing

Around Town Amanda Oye

B

eautiful works of art with messages about living a healthy lifestyle were created at the Richmond Chinese Community Society’s 2012 Children’s Drawing Contest at Lansdowne Centre last Sunday.

Over 200 children participated in the contest,

which is in its seventh year, while even more stopped by to participate in the crafts and games section of the event that the RCCS’s youth group set up and ran. “We thought this is a great educational tool,” said Henry Beh, the executive director of the RCCS. Each year the contest features two themes that are always different but are always connected to heart health. “It’s great to promote healthy lifestyles in Richmond,” Beh said. “We want the community aware.” The contest was broken down into two categories: junior, for those ages 3-11 and senior, for those ages 12-17.

Cutting Costs

This year, the junior group followed the theme of a heart healthy family, while the senior group drew pictures relating to a smoke-free community. Three judges determined the top three drawings in each category, and selected a group of consolation prize winners. The winning drawings from each category will go on to the International Chinese Heart Health Network’s international children’s drawing competition in Hong Kong. ABOVE: Rhonda Tam, the winner of the junior category and Francesca Chan, the winner of the senior category.
