‘The trenches will be beautiful, mud to the eyebrows’ Fred Harwood left in 1915 with Lilla in his heart, destined for the brutal battlefields of the First World War by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

O

n April 19, 1916, Fred Harwood vanished. A private in the Canadian army, the 25-year-old was fighting in Europe on the front lines of the First World War.

The night he disappeared, Harwood was sheltered in a crater at St. Eloi, a shell-pocked wasteland of mud and the scene of intense fighting between Canadian and German soldiers. He regularly wrote letters and postcards to family and the love of his life Lilla, but Harwood hadn’t been heard from in a month. Then on May 16, a letter arrived in the hands of his anxious mother. It was from her son. Harwood, who would become well known in Richmond, was one of thousands of young Canadian soldiers who fought in the brutal four-year war—a war that claimed the lives of 66,665 soldiers from this country. On Sunday, Remembrance Day, they’ll be remembered.

Off to war Fred Harwood was born in Kirkby Stephen, a small town in northwest England in 1891. He emigrated to Canada in 1913, settling in Vancouver. That’s where he met Lilla, but their blossoming relationship was about to be put on hold. War broke out and young men across the country signed up to serve overseas. Beliefs and family tradition drove some of them, others simply sought adventure or employment. But this surge of patriotism felt by so many young men—death and destruction be damned—led them to war, and Harwood was one of them. Harwood enlisted in the 29th battalion, sixth brigade, 2nd Canadian Expeditionary Force. He would be paid $1 per day, plus a field allowance of 10 cents. On May 14, 1915, after seven months of training, Harwood said goodbye to his girlfriend Lilla, took what he could and left Vancouver on an eastbound train. He joined other soldiers on a ship bound for Europe. In his pocket was a simple brown diary. Laura, Lilla’s sister, must have understood the cost of war and wrote a message on the diary’s first open page: “If good wishes good can bring; Mine are with you in everything.” See Page 3

Diary recounts days in a prisoner-of-war camp From Page Opening the diary would become a daily ritual for Harwood, who chronicled his experiences and often summed up an entire day in a few words. The ship anchored in Plymouth, England on May 29. That night, Canadian soldiers got a stark reminder that war was real. Another Allied ship just a few kilometres away had been sunk overnight.

A Day of Remembrance •Every year on Nov. 11, Canadians pause in a silent moment of remembrance for the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace. •We honour those who fought for Canada in the First World War (1914-1918), the Second World War (1939-1945), and the Korean War (1950-1953), as well as those who have served since then. •More than 1,500,000 Canadians have served our country in this way, and more than 100,000 have died. * Source: Veterans Affairs Canada

Deep in the trenches Rain, military training, the army’s church parade—Harwood dutifully noted the routine days of a soldier. Things changed Sept. 17 when he arrived in France by ship and made camp inside a barn. Eight days later he was at war. “First night in trenches; front line, very quiet, a little shooting,” he wrote. Rain was heavy, mud was thick in the trenches and German soldiers were dug in just 100 metres away. Trench warfare defined the war, but army commanders hadn’t planned for it. Machine guns and other modern weapons proved too dangerous for soldiers to remain in the open, so both sides dug in. When attacks were made, heavy casualties were the result, reducing the war to a stalemate. Despite the gloom, Harwood’s messages from the trenches were largely void of emotion: “Had first good sleep for a week,”“Had a good hot bath,”“Fine dugouts with fireplaces,”“Attended burial service.” He noted days of heavy bombardment—that wounded him at least once—and the tiring work of digging trenches under heavy rain. Soldiers spent most days on guard, improving defences, writing letters or just waiting for something to happen. When an attack was ordered, soldiers ran from their trenches across a landscape full of craters. Mud slowed their movement and made them vulnerable to artillery and machine gun fire, and entire units could be wiped out in a few hours. Soldiers were sometimes captured on night raids in efforts from both sides to gain information. Harwood kept a list of key German battlefield phrases that could help in capturing enemy soldiers—”Give yourself up,”“Come out”—but as it turned out, Harwood himself was taken prisoner.

‘An unmitigated disaster’ Harwood was fighting in a battle that author Tim Cook described as “an unmitigated disaster” for Canadian troops. The firefight was at St. Eloi, near Ypres, Belgium, an area with massive mud-filled craters and little cover that marked the first major battle for Harwood and the 2nd Canadian Division. Canadians relieved British troops on the night of April 3, 1916, but found few trenches to take cover in, and most were waist-deep in water. Moreover, the Germans had the entire front under constant fire. Despite the conditions, Harwood found the time to write a letter to his love Lilla, or “Lil,” as he called her. “I dare say you’ll see a casualty list in the papers, don’t worry dear. I’m alright.” He reminded her of the moment they met, at a youth group at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in downtown Vancouver. “I’ll never forget the first night I attended the Endeavour meeting. I felt quite at home. As soon as I entered the room I believe Lil, you were the first girl to welcome me and ask me to come again. Am glad I joined up Lil, or I would not have been the happy man I am today.” Something Lilla said in an earlier letter made him go further. “I could never have entered your life dear, without telling you all, it would not have been fair. You speak of your unworthiness, Lil. Please dear, don’t say that again because I could never be really worthy of you. I am trying hard though.” He might have a chance to go on leave in the next two months, he told her. Two go from each

platoon every week, and he was due. He signed off: “Well dearie, it’s still pouring with rain, the trenches will be beautiful when we go in again, mud to the eyebrows.” Through two weeks of hard fighting, Canadian commanders were often unclear as to the location of their troops at St. Eloi, according to an account from the Canadian War Museum. Once aerial photos helped reveal true Canadian and German positions, the battle ground to halt on April 16, with enemy forces holding most key points. On the night of April 19, 1916, Canadians— with weapons jammed by mud—were again under intense artillery bombardment and driving rain. Of those who survived, some surrendered, others crawled away through machine gun fire to escape. The Canadians suffered 1,373 casualties during the confused fighting at St. Eloi. But Harwood wasn’t among the dead. He was taken prisoner.

Good news by post Harwood was taken to a prisoner of war camp at Giessen, Germany. “I cannot tell you how we were captured but we were taken prisoners,” he wrote in a letter to his mother. “A lot of my pals were killed, and only God knows how the rest of us escaped. However, there are a few of my pals with me, and a few more in hospital who will join us later when well enough.” The wooden huts at Giessen would become Harwood’s home for the next two-and-a-half years. “The authorities are strict, but we are quite used to military discipline, being in the army so long.” He was allowed to write two letters and four postcards per month. Prisoners were allowed to receive parcels, but spirits, fuel, matches, candles and medicine were forbidden. Soup was the main menu item, so he asked his mother to send a few things: bread, raisin bread, cheese, margarine, dripping, jam, biscuits, tinned meat or a little cold

roast. He also needed a razor, brush, soap and toothpaste. He offered to send his mom some prison tobacco—he couldn’t smoke it. “I don’t like putting you to all this bother, mother, but I know you will willingly do it for me.I’ve the best home in the world—God bless you all,” he wrote. “God saved my life a dozen times last week, and He will look after me here.”

“Mother and father’s loyalty and devotion to each other had stood the test of their long engagement and the separation of the war years,” remembered Bob Harwood, one of four children. The family moved to Richmond in 1931, first living on General Currie Road, and then in a home on Bridgeport Road. The family was active in local church and community life. Two of Bob’s siblings became well known for their work in the community. Don had a career as a recreation administrator for the municipality while Marion was a teacher at Thompson Elementary. Five years after moving to Richmond, Fred Harwood returned to Europe for the unveiling of a memorial in Vimy, France that paid tribute to Canadian soldiers. Vimy was the site of a major victory for the Canadians, but it came at a high cost, with more than 10,000 casualties in six days. Harwood died in 1979 at age 88, predeceased by Lilla. His diary lives on at the City of Richmond Archives, so too do the memories of the letters the couple exchanged during a brutal war. Son Bob remembers them as a moving tribute to the depth and tenderness of their commitment to each other—and the future they hoped to have together. They had a 51-year marriage because Harwood made it home. Others did not. Lest we forget.

Armistice The Armistice of Nov. 11, 1918 marked the end of the war, a true world war with 65 million men from 30 nations involved. At least 10 million men were killed and 29 million more were wounded, captured or declared missing, according to Veterans Affairs Canada. The war was a coming of age for Canada. From a nation of eight million people, 619,636 men and women served in the Canadian forces during the war. Of those, 66,655 gave their lives and another 172,950 were wounded. Nearly one in 10 Canadians who fought in the war didn’t return. In 1918 Harwood stayed in Germany to bury a close friend who fell victim to a new threat: the flu pandemic. He left for Yorkshire, England first to visit his family, and then, in March 1919, to Vancouver to see his bride-to-be. On Aug. 20, Harwood married Lilla at the Vancouver church where they met.

Residential tower to eat up restaurants by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reportre A flurry of residential development in Richmond’s downtown is expected to soon gobble up two more businesses. Townline Group of Companies is proposing to build a 16-storey tower with 126 homes at 8280 and 8300 Granville Ave., near St. Albans Road. City council’s planning committee endorsed the rezoning bid Tuesday. Each site is currently occupied by a restaurant: An Nam Restaurant at 8280 Granville Ave. and Daimasu at 8300 Granville Ave. The proposed development is strictly residential and won’t have commercial space. If built, the tower would be sandwiched by 7-Eleven and Value Village. Although neighbouring properties aren’t proposed for redevelopment, senior planner Brian Guzzi suggested in his report that more towers will come. “It is anticipated that there will be a continuous wall of towers along this street in the future…” he said in his report.

Past Ethel Tibbits’ winners sought for 20th anniversary

Staff Reporter The behind-the-scenes work for the 20th annual Ethel Tibbits Women of Distinction Awards is well underway, but with the March 2013 event still four months away, organizers are now focusing on reaching out to former winners. So if you are a former winner, or know of somebody who is, please alert them to the fact that organizers are trying to track them down. Former winners are asked to e-mail ethels@ richmondreview.com with their contact information, as organizers have a special unveiling in mind for the 2013 fundraising luncheon that benefits Nova House, a shelter for women and their children escaping domestic violence. Since 1994, the Ethels have recognized the invaluable contributions women have made to making the Richmond community a great place to live, work and play. With Nova House being the luncheon’s primary beneficiary, the bulk of the $200,000 raised over the past 20 years has gone to support services for women. The special 20th anniversary is an important milestone for the Ethels, named after the pioneering former publisher of The Richmond Review who was known for being a firebrand and for raising social issues that were taboo at that era, including voicing her disagreement with the government’s decision to intern people of Japanese descent during the Second World War.

WHY DO I NEED A CROWN

When a tooth is broken down or is weakened because of a large filling (due to decay or a root canal) it is recommended to cover the entire tooth with a crown or cap in order to hold it together. The human bite is between 90-1200 lb/square inch. This can quickly break a tooth apart that has already lost a large portion of its natural structure. A crown will provide long term bracing around the entire tooth and protect it from further structure loss and discomfort. If you lose too much tooth structure, the next option is to have it extract and replaced with either a bridge or an implant. Call to schedule your complimentary consult and learn how to stop your suffering and regain all the things you are missing! The benefits of seeing Dr. Greg Nelson are in the convenience of all your treatment being completed in one office by one doctor using new methods and technology along with comfortable sedation.

“I was recommended to have a crown on my molar following a root canal over five years ago. The cost was too much for me and I figured the tooth could wait as it was dead anyway. Over the lack of nutrients and blood supply, the tooth dried out and broke down. I was lucky to have caught it just in time and had a crown placed before I lost it completely. Thank you Dr. Nelson for saving me from losing that tooth. My bite is normal again!� E. Scott, Richmond, BC

EDITORIAL: Treat veterans with honour

O

n Sunday many of us will gather around cenotaphs and in city squares for solemn ceremonies paying tribute to Canada’s service men and women. We’ll hear words like sacrifice and honour, some of them uttered by politicians.

But for some veterans they’ll ring hollow. In 2006, Parliament unanimously passed the New Veterans Charter that changed the way injured soldiers are compensated. Instead of a lifetime pension, indexed to

inflation, veterans injured after that year, or who had their injury diagnosed since then, would get a lump sump settlement. Veterans Affairs champions the new system as “a more complete approach to helping our men and women injured in the line of duty,” offering them “real hope.” But some injured veterans say otherwise. They say Canadian soldiers injured in Afghanistan, and those suffering the lingering mental and emotional effects of their tour are getting substantially less support than they would have received

with the former indexed pension. Many are having difficulty reintegrating into civilian life. A study by Queen’s University last year concluded most disabled soldiers will receive only twothirds the compensation under the New Veterans Charter than they would have received from the old Pension Act. Recently Canada’s AuditorGeneral criticized the Canadian Forces and Veterans Affairs for their shoddy treatment of injured veterans, saying the system to get them help is “complex, lengthy and challenging to navigate.”

Even in death, the indignities continue. A program that is supposed to contribute just over $3,600 to the funeral costs for destitute ex-soldiers has rejected more than two-thirds of funding requests since 2006. Even when approved, that money is still less than some social services departments will pay towards the burial of the homeless. It’s one thing for Canada’s politicians to honour our veterans. It’s another to treat them with honour. —Black Press

Digging Deep Jim Wright

F

ive years ago, citizens trying to save a Richmond treasure began forming the Garden City Lands Coalition. It was soon a society. I was president. Now it’s a happy memory, though reborn in a new way, which I’ll get to. The coalition society is

gone because we met the need. The people won. We’ve kept the Garden City Lands green in the Agricultural Land Reserve for ALR uses for community wellness. At last, almost all on Richmond council are committed to that goal. The Agricultural Land Commission is also stronger now, and the commission rulings that protect the lands will endure. The community success has had far-reaching effects. You know the Garden City Lands carry priceless legacies for community wellness, but there’s more. It’s less known that the property was a chosen battleground for antiALR forces. Its removal from the ALR would have opened an ALR floodgate. Our resolute defence of the lands helped the commission stand firm. Great for food security! We even set an example for the world. The International Eco-Safety Cooperative Organization

(IESCO), a United Nations affiliate, chose Richmond as “Demonstrative City” for a term till the end of 2013. The award selectors had visited and were struck that citizens fighting the City of Richmond’s ALR application that threatened the lands also teamed with the city for successes like the Terra Nova Sharing Farm. Looking back to 2007, I ask “What were we thinking of?” We took on a powerful triad bent on wresting the lands from the ALR. Besides our own city hall, we faced the formidable Musqueam Indian Band and Canada Lands Company, which owned the property. We were just a bunch of folks who saw a need. The triad spent at will on public relations companies. One ran a massive phone survey to prove that residents wanted the Garden City Lands out of the ALR. A citizen blew the whistle. Her letter in this paper showed how the survey refused her pro-ALR response. The ma-

nipulation was typical. Looking at the triad’s agreements, citizens found little for Richmond. Besides space for an unloved trade centre, the city would buy land “scattered throughout the entire Garden City Property”—green space for dense development for others’ profit. Exposing the faults was a sad civic duty, but it was helpful. Citizens started adding their ALR visions for the lands to earlier ones from poverty response groups and Kwantlen University’s urban agriculture experts. At Richmond council’s public hearing about the Garden City Lands in 2008, the coalition to save the lands grew as citizens came forward with passion for community values. The citizen input next flowed into reasoned submissions to the Agricultural Land Commission. By my count, 150 parties wrote. Of those, 144 (96%) opposed the application, including a num-

ber of groups, one with 1,846 signatories. They described ALR uses of the lands for community needs. That squelched the triad’s claim of non-ALR “needs,” which the commission dismissed. For brevity, let’s skip to the present. Citizens, including council members, have given thousands of volunteer hours to bring the natural legacies of the Garden City Lands to today’s stage as city parkland. In the history of Richmond, no consultation has had greater input. It’s up to the city now. There’s excellence in sight. Also now, the former coalition society has its new existence. The focus is conservation. On Saturday, I’ll be honoured to accept the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal—for all who did what it took to meet the need. Jim Wright is president of the Garden City Conservation Society.

Students present uplifting service for Remembrance Day Editor: A heartfelt note of thanks to the teachers and students of Blundell Elementary School who prepared and presented a very uplifting Remembrance Day service at Rosewood Manor Tuesday, where my 88-year-old mother is a resident. Uniformed members of the Army Navy Air Force Veterans led the official ceremony and the very focused young students sang of a promising future in their hands. Perhaps most touching of all—after the service, the children fanned out to all parts of the room and started conversations with the resident seniors. Remembrance Day has always been a very important occasion for my Mom, and there weren't many dry eyes in the room. Thank you to those special teachers, the delightful students, the honourable members of the ANAF and the wonderful staff of Rosewood Manor. Susan Nielsen Richmond

Peace is... Editor: I am peaceful when I walk on the field of Terra Nova. I feel the soft grass tickling my toes. I lay down on the soft milkweeds, staring up at the colorful, beautiful morning sky. I listen to the wind howling and whistling softly. I watch as the trees are swaying gently back and forth like a baby’s cradle. The heavy scent of flowers makes me sneeze. I stand and walk on the bumpy pathway and the pointy rocks pinch my toes. As I walk, I start to sweat because of the scorching sun and a cool breeze makes me feel better. I then am attracted by a sweet scent of bees’ honey. I see a group of robins circling above a hive and crickets jumping up trying to reach the hive. The sight makes me laugh. The birds are tired and fly up and land on the tree branches. A robin passes me tweeting. I hear a cricket chirping like a violin. I feel calm walking in Terra Nova, the land which is open and wide. It takes the worries out of me and makes me feel like a free animal, a bird soaring above the clouds. What a perfect place to be in the early morning.

A Yaohan Centre food court eatery was closed for one day on Tuesday due to a cockroach infestation. Golden Rice Bowl Restaurant, at 1045-3700 No. 3 Rd., was closed because of the pest infestation as well as unsanitary conditions. Following a routine Nov. 5 inspection of the store, owned and operated by Hak Sun Lee, a health inspector noted: • floor, walls, counters, equipment and food contact surfaces are visibly dirty and appears to have not been cleaned or sanitized in a very long time • dishes and utensils visibly unclean after washing • wiping cloths dirty and/or not stored properly (sanitizing solution not used) • no sanitation plan available on site • several food items (tofu in hot sauce, chicken and celery in spicy sauce and beef in ginger sauce) were held at room temperature But it was during the follow-up inspection, on Nov. 6, that the inspector found a cockroach infestation. While the eatery was advised to contact a pest control company to implement pest control measures, live cockroaches were still observed. However, the restaurant was allowed to reopen on Wednesday, after the other issues were resolved. Lee was unavailable for comment at press time Thursday. —by Martin van den Hemel

Local producer launches B.C. travel show in China Richmond producer Danny Sayson has landed a deal to air his B.C. travel TV series in China. West Coast Adventures began appearing on a Hong Kong network Friday. The weekly show is being broadcast during prime time, reaching viewers in China, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, and even parts of Australia and New Zealand. “I believe that we are the very first travel series that is entirely about British Columbia to be airing in China,” said Sayson, whose company is Sayson Productions Ltd. The 1988 Richmond High grad’s

Danny Sayson’s ‘West Coast Adventures’ now being broadcast by Hong Kong network

show is about travel and adventure in the B.C. outdoors. Highlights include playing with dolphins at Vancouver Aquarium, mountain

climbing in Whistler, watching for grizzlies in Bella Coola and fishing for sturgeon in Fraser Canyon. The series first aired in North America on PBS and Shaw from 2009 to 2011. Sayson said when the show ended its run here, he saw potential in Asia. “When China granted Canada Approved Destination Status in 2010, thus allowing Chinese citizens to travel to Canada in organized tour groups, I knew that there would be interest in our show.” More information about the show can be found at westcoastadventurestv.com.

Remembrance Day

Richmond remembers war heroes Sunday Richmond’s annual Remembrance Day ceremony and parade will take place Sunday, Nov. 11 at city hall. The day of remembering those who have given their lives for Canada’s freedom and security begins at 7 a.m. with a sunrise ceremony, in which members of Richmond’s Army Cadet Corps will mount a vigil at the cenotaph. At 10:20 a.m., marching units will head the parade from the cenotaph, led by Richmond’s Canadian Army Unit (39 Service Battalion), followed by public safety agencies, members of Richmond’s cadet organizations, a colour party and a veterans’ platoon. The ceremony will include a performance of “In Flanders Fields” by the R.C. Palmer Secondary School choir, buglers and pipers will play “Last Post,” “Lament” and “Reveille.” At 11 a.m. there will be two minutes of silence in memory of Canada’s fallen service personnel. A wreath-laying ceremony will follow. The cenotaph is located in front of Richmond City Hall, at No. 3 Road and Granville Avenue. Last month, the cenotaph was rededicated as the names of eight war veterans were added to the monument: •First World War: Horace Reginald Lee and John Robert Simpson •Second World War: Ferdinand Adam Treichel, Francis John Matier, Allan John Osborne •Korean War: Kenneth Donald Reimer, William Edward Dutfield, William Lapka

They earned their pilot wings just months apart in 1941, won commendations for their expert skills, and settled down to raise their families in Richmond back in the 1960s. Just weeks before Remembrance Day, two local families are in mourning after the passing of World War II veterans George Laughlin Craig and John W.D. MacCormac.

of Yorkshire, England during World War II for the Royal Canadian Air Force. He completed bombing raids over Europe, including on D-Day, June 6, 1944, the turning point of the war, Bob said. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. George Craig, 90, died of natural causes on Oct. 26, and is survived by his wife, Pat—who still lives in the family’s West Richmond home—four children and five grandchildren. A celebration of his life was held on Nov. 2. “Dad was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and uncle,” a published obit from the Craig family said. Richmond’s John W.D. MacCormac was determined to make his 100th birthday, but died of complications on Oct. 15 following a bout with pneumonia just three months short of his goal. MacCormac’s daughter Judy Assoon said it was shortly after her father earned his wings for the Royal Air Force in England in the spring of 1941 that his expertise was recognized, and he was tasked with training hundreds of other pilots. He was awarded the Air Force Cross, the Star, the 1939-1945 Atlantic Star, the Air Crew Europe Star and the 1939-1945 Defense Medal. Following the war, MacCormac settled his family in Richmond in 1968 on a five-acre property on No. 7 Road. “He was generous, big hearted, determined and strong, earning great respect from all who knew him,” his family wrote in a published obituary. MacCormac was predeceased by his wife Carol, shortly after their 71st anniversary, and his son Bry. He is survived by his daughter Judy, two grandsons, a great granddaughter, and many nieces and nephews in England. A celebration of his life is scheduled for Nov. 22 at Unitarian Church of Vancouver, 949 West 49th St. in Vancouver at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, friends and family are asked to make a contribution to the charity of their choice.

Remembrance Day

Experience Canada’s only Remembrance Day run

A Runner’s Mind Christine Blanchette

R

emembrance Day is one of the most important holidays of the year as we honor those who gave their lives so that freedom won is celebrated by all Canadians today.

Many will pay their respects at Royal Canadian Legion branches and Army Navy Air force units across the True North Strong and Free. But for those who would dare to combine a grueling eight-kilometre cross country race with all the traditions and respect that go with a typical Remembrance Day happening, you are left with a truly unique event—the only one of its kind in Canada. The 34th annual Remembrance Day 8km Run/walk will be held, as always, at Brockton

Oval in Stanley Park on Sunday, Nov. 11. The run features a Masters (35 and over) race that starts following a moment of silence at 11:01 a.m. The Open category then takes to the start line at 11:11, embarking on what is a very challenging one loop course in beautiful Stanley Park. Afterward, the sense of brethren and camaraderie from all of the participants is unique—with a discernible difference from any other race throughout the year. When I think of Remembrance Day I think of the veterans, and racing on this day is a chance to engage in a healthy activity and honor those who died at war. I’ve enjoyed the event so much for the beautiful race course that carries you past streams, up scenic hills, across hectares of leaf strewn grass plains to the finish line. The social aspect is a satisfying experience of personal contact with senior aged runners that rarely participate in the mainstream races. These are some of the greatest personalities and the best of story tellers. In a recent interview with race director and

accomplished runner, Jerry Tighe, he said, “The event was started in 1979 by the Alta Lake Sports Club, (which was) a club of runners, cross country skiers and triathletes.” Tighe, in his 25th year as race director, adds, “Besides starting the Remembrance Day Run, they also started the first cross country ski marathon in Whistler.” Tighe noted several historical facts of the event, including, “In the mid to late 80’s as some of the originators became more involved in the world of triathlon administration, the event was turned over to the Hershey Harriers Athletic Club, which is a group of runners and triathletes that train in Stanley Park.” After the moment of silence at 11:01 a.m., a fellow runner trumpets the Last Post near Brockton Oval in Stanley Park. At the same time the 21 Gun Salute echoes across the water from Victory Square on Hastings Street. Tighe says, “Runners continue to come back on November 11th to honor the fallen and to meet up with friends with like interests.”

He continued, “I have not heard of a similar event on that day in Canada.” No matter on which day of the week Remembrance Day falls, the run will be held. There are hot refreshments served afterward, along with draw prizes. “We have some trophies that are 34 years old that are engraved with the winners of the Masters over age 35 run. In addition there is also a large wooden plaque with the names of the winners of the five year age groups,” Tighe said. “Participants are of all ages and various talents. This is an event for all plodders, joggers and those who have just discovered the wonders of health and fitness, as well as the fleet of foot.” Jerry Tighe didn’t say it, but he has shaped the Remembrance Day 8 km Run into one of the most special days on the running calendar.

his one may just end up on my Best Books of 2012 list.

Gone Girl, the new psychological suspense thriller by Gillian Flynn may move at a snail’s pace, but it’s riveting. I found the plotting not only intricate, but brilliantly formulated, and it reminded me of Scott Turow’s legal thrillers

Presumed Innocent .and Innocent, both mindbending novels. In Gone Girl, the story unfolds thus: it’s Nick and Amy Elliott Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary and Amy goes AWOL. She just vanishes, but not without a trace. There are actually plenty of traces, each one perfectly created for maximum effect. The book is fashioned in alternating chapters devoted to Nick and Amy’s skewed versions of the truth. Or what they’re calling the truth. Both husband and wife weave a never-ending trail of lies that point the finger of blame in each other’s direction. When nasty news leaks out about Nick, the police and the townspeople of North Carthage, Missouri are certain that he’s killed Amy and disposed of her body. But the more

It’s chock full of red herrings that will keep you reading late into the night. the reader learns about perfectionist Amy and her somewhat twisted, rich-girl background, the more you get to thinking that she disappeared herself. But I’m not telling. With dark wit and a sharp mind, Gillian Flynn has produced one of the best suspense novels in ages. It may not be everyone’s cup of hemlock, but if you enjoy guessing whodun-it, this novel won’t disappoint. It’s chock full of red herrings that will keep you reading late into the night.

Trucking industry has opportunities Job seekers are in luck when it comes to the commercial road transportation industry in British Columbia. Trucking companies throughout B.C. require professional drivers, mechanics, dispatchers and operations staff right now, which means that job seekers with experience and/or training may find work within their preferred region. For those considering training prior to joining the workforce, demand for skilled workers in the industry is likely to grow—to 2020 and beyond. There are a number of reasons for this. For truck drivers, the industry is facing a North America-wide shortage because most are 45 years of age or older and nearing retirement (in fact, in Canada, according to a report by the Canada Trucking Human Resources Council, 58 percent of long-haul truck drivers fall in this age range). Similar shortages exist for other jobs, including diesel engine and heavy duty mechanics. Aside from worker shortages, economic growth in the Asia-Pacific Gateway is also driving demand for workers in transportation. This applies not only to companies in the Lower Mainland, but in other regions

as well, since the Asia-Pacific “Gateway” is actually made up of an integrated supply chain of airports, seaports, rail and road connections, and border crossings with links supplied by trucking. In today’s trucking industry, equipment in many companies is state of the art, meaning increased comfort and ease for drivers and opportunities for mechanics to work with technologically advanced systems, keeping both their skills and interest engaged. Dispatch relies on sophisticated tracking and routing systems. Others on the operations side also use information technology of many kinds to deal with everything from licences and permits, to customer services, accounting, sales and marketing. And, people joining the industry have many career choices. Drivers, for example, may work close to home as pick-up and delivery or shorthaul drivers. Those who like the idea of travelling across Canada or North America can become long-haul drivers for an employer or work as owner-operators. Drivers may haul consumer goods, fuel, logs, heavy-duty equipment, livestock – most of what we purchase or consume spent

some time on the road with a commercial truck! If you already have experience as a driver, mechanic or operations worker, most companies advertise jobs on their websites. Members of the B.C. Trucking Association from across the province may post jobs under Careers on www.bctrucking. com, and the provincial and federal governments maintain job sites at WorkBC (www.workbc.ca/Jobs/) and Working in Canada (www. workingincanada.gc.ca/— choose to Explore Careers by Occupation, then by Region). Within your own community, it may also pay to approach a company you’d like to work for, drop off a résumé and inquire if and when they’ll be hiring. If you’d like to enter the industry but need training, there are also many avenues to explore. Although there is not a standard training course for professional drivers, there are numerous private schools throughout B.C. that offer programs. For information on transportation trades in B.C., including mechanics and other technicians, visit transCDA (www.tcda. ca/home). And for information on trucking careers in general, see www.truckingcareers.ca.

Demand for skilled workers in the trucking industry is likely to grow.

community Richmond Animal Protection Society holding benefit gala The Richmond Animal Protection Society’s Wine & Whiskers Gala will raise funds for abandoned, neglected and homeless dogs and cats in the community. The gala takes place on Nov. 17 at the Radisson Hotel. Emceed by Norma Reid from CTV Morning Live, the gala is sure to provide a fun-filled evening of dinner, dancing, live entertainment and charity auctions. Richmond Animal Protection Society operates the Richmond Animal

Shelter on No. 5 Road, as well as the largest cat sanctuary in Canada. The gala will help fund veterinary care for the approximately 700 felines at the sanctuary, as well as for the hundreds of dogs, cats and small animals that live at Richmond Animal Shelter until they are adopted. RAPS is the first organization to operate a no-kill shelter for Richmond’s unwanted pets, and the animals in their care are given all the time needed to find them safe and committed

new homes. No-kill sheltering is very costly and dependent upon community support, so RAPS is reaching out. “Purchasing a ticket to our gala will help provide life-saving financial aid to sick and injured animals,” said executive director Carol Reichert. Tickets can be purchased online at www.rapsociety.com, at Richmond Animal Shelter on No. 5 Road or the Richmond Animal Protection Society Thrift Store on Granville Avenue, or by calling 604-275-2036.

Francisco backstops T-Birds to back-to-back titles by Don Fennell Sports Editor Bea Francisco didn’t pick up her first hockey stick until Grade 8. Now, at 20, the goalkeeper is a member of the national women’s field hockey team and a two-time Canadian university champion with the University of

B.C. Thunderbirds— this year and last. A third-year kinesiology student at UBC, the Richmond resident posted three shutouts in five games, including a 3-0 victory over the University of Toronto Blues Sunday in the Canadian university women’s field hockey championship

final played in Toronto. “This is a very special team just because we jell so well on and off the field,” Francisco said. “A lot of us have been playing together for a couple of years now and sharing this is what makes (winning) so special.” Completing her third season at UBC, Fran-

cisco is one of eight national team players on a T-Birds’ squad that also includes Hannah Haughn and Kate Gillis. “Both have a lot of international caps and they bring a lot of leadership,” Francisco said. Though an avid athlete, Francisco didn’t plan on playing field hockey. She just decid-

ed to demonstrate her school spirit by showing up for tryouts on the first day of classes at her high school (Little Flower Academy). “They asked who wanted to be goalie and I thought it would be kind of cool,” she said. “It came pretty naturally to me.”

Francisco earned her first international cap at the age of 18, playing a home match for Canada against Chile. Two other Richmondites were part of last weekend’s final. Gabrielle Jayme was a firstyear midfielder on this year’s UBC team, while Kaelan Watson played her fifth and final sea-

son with the University of Toronto. A graduate of Hugh McRoberts Secondary, Watson scored five goals and played all 12 games for the Blues this season. The 2010 Canadian championship MVP was also named the 2011 varsity Blues female athlete of the year in 2011.

Powering podium performances Olympians, Paralympians share how leadership inspired success by Don Fennell Sports Editor Forty-eight hours away from winning Olympic bronze, the Canadian women’s soccer team was still trying to overcome the disappointment of a heartbreaking loss to the Americans. As the players gathered,

further reflecting on the 4-3 extra-time loss in the semifinal match Canada once led 3-2, they’re were having difficulty making sense of the result. Coach John Herdman didn’t say a word. He left that to the leadership group, which recognized the opportunity to finish in the medals still lay ahead.

“That was so powerful because he allowed us to deal with it the way we needed to,” said veteran goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc’s own leadership skills helped to energize Canada’s 1-0 victory over France in the third-place game Aug. 9 at the London Games. “It’s going to take one

Richmond Olympic Oval. The conference, hosted by Canadian Sport Centre Pacific, was designed to educate and inspire the athletes in their quest for podium performances. Athletes had the opportunity to attend workshops by leading experts in their respective fields and hear from panel presenters including LeBlanc, Ashleigh McIvor and Richard Peter. Their address focused on the power and importance of leadership. A member of the Canadian national ski cross team, McIvor became the first gold medal winner of women’s ski cross at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Whistler. But she’s convinced she wouldn’t have won had it not been for teammate Chris Del Bosco helping set the stage during training. “Basically we had three days of training on the course but the jumps were really big (built out of hay and wood) and snow was an issue (much of it was trucked in),” McIvor said. “A lot of times on the circuit the jumps are great for a lot of us and too scary for others. so often they’ll come in and tone the jumps down a bit. But at the Olympics, because the jumps were built of hay and wood, they couldn’t do that and so it was intimidating. I was able to convince myself I was less intimated—largely due to Del Bosco.” As is customary, on the first day training day the skiers inspected the course and tried to memorize all the jumps. If it’s a mellow course they’ll run a couple sessions and ease into it, but the Olympic course wasn’t mellow. See Page 28

Teammates often provide inspiritation

From Page 28 “We got to the top and we’re standing in the start gate,” recalled McIvor. I’m thinking we’ll do the first couple of jumps and stop, and I look over at (De Bosco) and he’s totally ready to go. “I’m like, ‘Are you going to run the whole thing?’ “He looked at me like it was the dumbest question in the world. But what he did there was make me want to run the entire course too. He led by example.” So McIvor skied the entire track on her first run, which she said was “a huge advantage because I got all those nerves out of my system and from there was able to focus on dialing the track in, whereas a lot of the other athletes

took the full three days to even get one full length run in.” “I was so thankful I had that teammate to (help) lead me down the course,” she said. The following year, McIvor’s own leadership skills helped inspire teammate Kelsey Serwa to victory. “(Going into the X-Games) Kelsey was feeling intimidated by the course, similar to what I was feeling at the Olympics,” said McIvor. “On this particular jump it was like flying 150 feet from take-off to landing—like going across a soccer field. I don’t know why, but I was just in a positive frame of mind and got the nerve up to hit the jump. It was the craziest thing I’ve ever done in my life, and really exciting.

went on to win the X-Games and a week later won the world championships in Park City, Utah. And our teammate Julia (Murray) was second at worlds. “I celebrated their success as much as if it were my own,” continued McIvor. “I felt a huge sense of accomplishment and pride, knowing what they were up against and knowing my leadership had played a role in their success. Success breeds success and the more you can work together as a team, even in an individual sport like ski cross, the better you’ll be. A good leader makes everybody better.” A veteran of Canada’s Paralympic men’s wheelchair basketball team, Richard Peter recently won his third gold medal at the London Games and is widely recognized as one of the game’s greatest ambassadors. He’s also a constant source of inspiration, not only because of his talent but his work ethic. “One of the biggest messages I try to promote is that you’re learning every day,” said Peter. “Even as veterans we still have to improve ourselves.” Peter’s philosophy stems from his childhood where had to learn how to adapt and overcome many obstacles. “When I first started playing wheelchair sports I just played because I enjoyed playing sports,” he said. “(Now) I try to talk to a lot of the younger guys that are coming up, and whether they make the team again or not, say, ‘All right, these are things you need to work on.’ “And I try to help them improve and get that broader picture of what being part of a team entails and also help them individually to prolong their careers. I think learned a lot of that from back home,” said Peter.

Onni commissions study from Urban Analytics

Adding value near rapid transit The availability of rapid transit is one of the most important things that buyers are looking for in a home development in recent years, and a report by Urban Analytics for Onni has demonstrated the increase in value that comes with this convenience. “Transit plays a big factor in the market,” says Nick Belmar of Onni. “This report just substantiates our argument about what people could expect when they buy near transit.” The report notes that new condos located along the Canada Line in Richmond and the Cambie corridor saw an increase in value, with Richmond seeing an increase of 21

per cent and Cambie finding a 33 per cent rise between 2009 and 2010. In Richmond, values increased by 15 per cent before the line was completed, and then six per cent over its first year. Cambie saw similar results, with a 19 per cent increase before the line opened and a continued rise after. “Values of newer condos located near a new rapid transit line will see an increase in value in the period ... preceding the completion of a rapid transit system, and ... while the rate of value appreciation tends to slow in the months after ... completion, higher values are sustained in the long term,” says Urban Analytics’ Michael Ferreira.

developers recognize this area as a hot spot.” Carlsen says. “Buyers want to live here.” It’s no wonder, with Willowbrook Shopping Centre just a five minute walk away, and schools, recreation, dining and shopping all in the neighbourhood. The area is incredibly family friendly, but it also works well for first-time buyers and downsizers alike. Owners will be able to take possession of their new place at the

end of 2013. Over 50 per cent of the 69 homes are already sold, and Carlsen attributes this to three very important factors. “This is a fantastic product at a fantastic price in an unbeatable location,” he says. “I really think it comes down to value.” Two-bedroom, two-bathroom homes at Salix start at $229,900. For more information, visit www.salixliving.com or call 604-530-0054.

‘It’s really worked out well’

Salix offers great value in Surrey’s Clayton Heights By Kerry Vital

Woodbridge Homes is bringing a touch of modern elegance to Surrey’s Clayton Heights neighbourhood with its condominium development, Salix. That elegance starts outside your home, with the five-storey building’s classic Georgian-inspired architecture. Red brick and styled ironwork combine with the craftsman woodwork accents to make for a chic entrance. Salix is surrounded by lush greenery, and includes a courtyard for residents with arbors and benches.

This is a fantastic product at a fantastic price in an unbeatable location,” says sales manager Rob Carlsen.

Inside, buyers have three different interior design schemes to choose from: two contemporary and one traditional. The contemporary schemes (called Sallow and Osier) feature stone countertops and chic white satin flat panel upper cabinets and Teak or Wenge laminate flat panel lower cabinets, complemented by a modern stainless-steel feature hood fan and a ceramic tile backsplash with glass tile accents in the kitchen. Meanwhile, the traditional scheme (called Willow) includes elegant granite countertops and Victorian cabinetry in a dark wood, with its own custom Broan hood fan and tumbled limestone backsplash with a custom hand-set centrepiece. Both options are beautiful, so it’s up to you what style you want in your home. “This allows purchasers to pick and choose,” says Carlsen. “It’s really worked out well.” All three options feature stainlesssteel appliances and under-cabinet lighting, along with spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers surrounded by ceramic tile and well-lit large vanity mirrors, so your morning routine will be easy as possible. There are 15 different floorplans available, ranging from 474 to 1,290 square feet in a variety of one-, twoand three-bedroom configurations, and all have proven popular with buyers, Carlsen says. “The larger ones have done really well with downsizers. They don’t need a

big house anymore, but they still want space,” he says. Nine-foot ceilings are included throughout, with 10-foot ceilings on the top and bottom floors. Laminate flooring is featured in the main living areas, while comfortable trackless nylon carpeting in the bedrooms is great to sink your toes into first thing in the morning or late at night. Oversize windows let the natural light flood your home no matter what the weather is doing outside. If you’re in the mood for a bit of outdoor living, every condo at Salix has a private balcony or patio. One thing that Carlsen is particularly excited about at Salix is the storage space that comes with each residence. Located in your parking stall, the fourfoot by eight-foot space with its solid metal roll-down door could really be called a mini-garage. “It’s safe, secure and convenient,” says Carlsen. “It’s been huge with buyers.” The Clayton Heights area has seen a boom in new home projects recently. “I think it speaks to the fact that

Submitted photos

Homes at Salix include a private storage space for each unit, top, that serves as a mini-garage. The spacious floorplans include plenty of natural light and opulent master suites, above.

CHRISTMAS CORNER

HAMILTON, Richard Ian Dick was born in Montreal on December 14, 1930, and passed away on October 30, 2012, due to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease. During his last days he was surrounded by his loving family and friends. He will always be remembered and missed by Eleanor, his devoted wife of 59 years; children, Peggy (Bernard), Jenny (John), Jim (Sue), Dave (Julie); his grandchildren, and his great granddaughter. Dick was a dedicated research scientist in the field of Plant Virology. His career focused on improving food crop yields in developing countries and he served a term as President of the International Society of Plant Pathology. Dick felt a deep spiritual connection with music and the wilderness and was committed to helping others, both professionally and in his personal life, through numerous charitable activities. The family is very grateful for the exceptional care and comfort provided by the staff at Richmond Hospital (3 North), and will remember them fondly. There will be a Memorial Mass for Dick on December 7, 2012 at 10:30am at St. Joseph the Worker Parish, 4451 Williams Road, Richmond, with a reception to follow in the Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dick Hamilton’s name to Amnesty International or to the Richmond Hospital Foundation. You are welcomed to leave a personal message of condolence at: http://myalternatives.ca

Attained Sargeant designation after basic training and was then educated at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS), graduating as Lieutenant. Discharged in 1945, joined the Vancouver Fire Department and retired in 1982, as Assistant Fire Chief.

Married for 65 years to his beloved wife Margaret. Children Elizebeth (Donald) Richard (Brenda) Robert (Stephane), grandchildren Gordon, Warren (Kate), Spencer (Megan), Kurtis (Kirsten), Laurie (Wayne), RJ (Amy) Tom, and great grandchildren, Sam, Peter, Jesse, Rianna, Austin. Predeceased by parents Elizabeth, Sam, siblings Aileen, Pat, Olive, Doug. Dad was an inspiration and role model for his large extended family including nieces, nephews and cousins. An Officer to the end, he exemplified the example of a true gentleman. An avid reader, with an incredible memory, he was a repository of knowledge. Prior to losing sight as a result of glaucoma, he had been a world traveller, taking a keen interest in each location and experience. He was a fisherman, golfer, boater, fixer of anything needing repair, and could provide sound advice and counsel on most subjects. He especially enjoyed activities with family and friends, including summer camping, Harrison river cabin and time spent in Antigua and Nunavut. In keeping with his request there will be no service following cremation, a family gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Firefighters Burn Fund, or Local 18 Firefighters Benevolent Association. The family would like to extend their thanks to the Firefighters at Number 2 Hall, Richmond, for their past assistance and kindness.
