Richmond could join Vancouver Police

24 PAGEs

One of several options put forward by Vancouver Police Department analysis by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A single police force serving Richmond and Vancouver would provide civilian oversight, local control and $2.1 million in annual savings to local taxpayers, according to a new report. Amalgamating police services of the two cities is one option in front of Richmond’s civic politicians, who are again considering a break from the RCMP in favour of a force with greater local accountability. On Wednesday staff at Richmond City Hall will ask councillors what idea—if any—should be studied further. “We should always be asking ourselves if we can improve the community safety situation for our city,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “We’ll see where it ends up.” Richmond’s been down this road before. In 2009, a $135,000 city-led review failed to conclude if Richmond would be better suited with something other than the RCMP. A new review could cost another $150,000. Brodie said more study is worthwhile, noting the city’s dissatisfaction with the new 20-year RCMP contract, which Richmond signed in June, and was one of the last B.C. cities to do so. Richmond has several options. It could establish an independent force, but that would come with a cost up to $3.4 million for vehicles and equipment—which is also the amount the city would lose each year in a federal subsidy it now gets for contracting the RCMP. Alternatively, Richmond could go it alone and share services with the RCMP or another municipal force. Convincing other cities to start a regional force is another approach. But the least costly option is joining forces with Vancouver. Such a move would come with a $2.5 million initial cost and an operating cost of $35.6 million—$2.1 million less than Richmond pays with the RCMP, according to an analysis by the Vancouver Police Department. It would also give Richmond oversight on budget, policy and strategy on a police board with representation from both cities. Richmond would also be able to share Vancouver’s unit that investigates public complaints,

its emergency response teams, dog squad and negotiators. The marriage could even lead to “significant improvements” in response times, according to the VPD analysis requested by the City of Richmond. Amalgamation would require approval from both cities and the province. In a letter to Brodie, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said dissolving the VPD and creating a new joint agency is worth discussing, but cautioned it’s “only a hypothetical option” and would require support from his council. “There are clearly opportunities for synergies, economies of scale, improved co-ordination and communication and implementing best practices, not only between our two cities, but with others who might share the same interests,” he said.

“Obviously this would be a significant step for both Richmond and Vancouver.” But Richmond’s mayor isn’t sold. “My concern with being tied into Vancouver would be the level of service that you could expect after a certain period of time,” said Brodie. “Whether it’s looking at policing models or looking at models for other services, there’s any number of situations where a locale or an organization gets lost in this big picture. So I would have a lot of questions about that.” Brodie said if Richmond decided to connect with another city’s municipal force, doing so with a smaller community would probably make more sense. “You’d be more important to the whole policing model,” he said. Richmond is the third largest municipal RCMP

detachment in Canada, followed by Surrey and Burnaby. Cities can terminate their contract with the RCMP with at least two years notice. Richmond officials have repeatedly said they don’t take issue with service provided by RCMP officers, but rather the costs and accountability of the force—including the cost of the $1.2-billion RCMP E Division headquarters in Surrey and a 5.25 per cent pay increase for Mounties that was more than anticipated. For some local councillors like Coun. Ken Johnston, the most recent example came last month after learning Richmond has overpaid for RCMP’s specialized teams to the average tune of $371,000 in the past three years. Said Johnston: “The RCMP provides a great service in Richmond, but the accountability factor keeps raising its head.”

Don Fennell photos Mayor Malcolm Brodie (top photo) and many dignitaries and veterans turned out to remember the fallen at Richmond’s Remembrance Day ceremony on Sunday/

Second World War veteran impressed by youth Richmond High hosted veterans by Martin van den HEmel Staff Reporter Courtyard Gardens resident Steve Puhach was impressed by what he saw at Richmond High on Friday morning. A Remembrance Day service to honour the contributions of Canadian veterans, served to do more than pay tribute to the past sacrifices. It showed that current youth are respectful of the things other youth did for their country and families some 70 years ago. Sgt. Steve Puhach, now 98, served from 1941 to 1945 in the medical troop, working in Jamaica and then Italy during World War II. He worked alongside medics as an ambulance driver. “I think it’s very great that this generation is taking it seriously what we went through. They are lucky and happy that they did not

have to face what we did in our time...At least I know they consider and value...what we did in the past,” Puhach said. “I think they did very well.” Student leadersStudents Lauren Juliano and Aidan Wright spoke about the importance of remembering the past. “War and conflict are still devastating parts of our world,” Wright said. “We must not forget that many lives have been sacrificed to give us what we have today. It is our duty to keep that message of peace alive. And we can do that by remembering the voices of war.” Added Juliano: “That is why we are here today. To express our gratitude for our freedom which we owe so deeply to those who have risked and gave their lives to defend our nation to pursue peace. The sounds of war and the cries for peace will forever shape the lives we live today. Today is a day to honour the bravery and heroism of those soldiers.” The ceremony also included a choir, band and military procession by the local cadets.

Parkin Lai of Vancouver accused of impaired driving A 28-year-old Vancouver man made his first appearance in Richmond provincial court Tuesday morning, on charges stemming from an Aug. 4 collision that injured one police officer, and narrowly missed two others. Perkin Lai has been charged with impaired driving and driving while over the .08 blood/alcohol limit. On Aug. 4, a Richmond Mountie pulled over a vehicle whose driver couldn’t speak English, at Westminster Highway and No. 5 Road. While the officer was in his vehicle, a car plowed into the rear passenger side of the cruiser, throwing the police officer into the steering wheel and dashboard of the vehicle, leading to a concussion and soft tissue damage. Two other police officers, who had come to the scene to assist in providing translation services, also narrowly avoided being struck during the crash. The officers from the second police cruiser gave chase, and a short time later, pulled over the vehicle, and arrested the driver for impaired driving. —by Martin van den Heme

Jet Pet Resort thrown to dragons The owners of Sea Island’s cat and dog paradise—Jet Pet Resort— are willingly entering a different sort of den next week—one with dragons. Camilla and Marcus Dahl will appear on CBC’s Dragons’ Den tonight to make their pitch for $200,000 to finance an expansion into the Ontario market. The entrepreneurs will make their pitch to a panel of Canadian business moguls who have the cash and know-how to make it happen. Armed with a half dozen young puppies, the Dahls will do their best to grab the interest of at least one on the dragon panel, which includes Bruce Croxon, Arlene Dickinson, Kevin O’Leary, Jim Treliving and David Chilton. Jet Pet Resort is a pet boarding facility that opened next to Vancouver International Airport in September 2010. It’s touted as Canada’s first airport location dog-andcat resort, offering short and long term stays of pets whose owners are on their way to and from the airport. Rates are $20 to $37 per night. The facility is able to house up to 70 dogs and 20 cats. It offers themed bedrooms—including a Dragons’ Den dog room. Dragon’s Den airs at 8 p.m. —by Matthew Hoekstra

$20,000 fine and penalty for woman and her watch by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A woman who failed to declare more than $30,000 worth of jewelry and a watch, has been fined $5,319.59 in Richmond provincial court. Jing Wang returned from a trip to Hong Kong last April, and declared she had just

$350 worth of items. After being referred for a secondary examination, border services officers found undeclared items, including a Chopard watch. According to Canada Border Service Agency spokesperson Faith St. John, Wang said she didn’t declare the watch because she “though it was too expensive.”

Aside from the court fine, Wang will have to pay Canada Border Service Agency some $15,000 for the watch’s return. Wang appeared in Richmond provincial court last week, and pled guilty to possessing imported goods. All goods acquired out of the country must be declared upon one’s return home, St. John said. If you don’t declare

them, or if they are falsely declared, the items can be seized. Smuggling, undervaluation and other customs act infractions, can lead to prosecution. A record of infractions is kept on the Canada Border Services database and result in more detailed examinations on future trips.

EDITORIAL: No talk on trade treaty

T

here seems to be ignoring another looming policy decision that may have even more of an effect on B.C. resource projects. The federal government is ratifying a Canada-China investment treaty. While the treaty grants some additional rights to Canadian companies doing business in China, it also grants sweeping

additional authority to Chinese companies in Canada. Details of this treaty have not been debated in the House of Commons and don’t have to be. While the opposition is now mounting a campaign against the treaty, the government points out the opposition has had four opposition days since the treaty was tabled and ignored it on each occasion. It would be nice to know what actual powers this treaty will grant

China and Chinese companies in Canada. If Northern Gateway were turned down, for example, and it was proposed by a Chinese company, what kind of recourse would it have? How are disputes to be resolved? What kind of compensation is due to a Chinese company that feels it hasn’t received fair treatment from a provincial or local government? And how do state-owned Chinese companies fit into the puzzle?

The agreement may be very benign and not have the negative impact that some people are suggesting. The trouble is, no one really knows. Many Chinese companies are very interested in Canadian resources. Citizens need to know how this treaty will affect the ability of Canadian governments to make decsions affecting those resources. —Black Press

efore the 1,200page, $25-million Cohen Commission report on the Fraser River sockeye salmon fishery slips beneath the waves, allow me to dip my toe into the river of data that has flowed by in the past three years.

If your information on this hugely complex subject consisted of skimming a few news stories or watching protesters on TV, you will likely conclude what urban people have been indoctrinated with for years. The whole issue is salmon farms and whether they are bad or catastrophic. “Freeze new salmon farms on sockeye migration route: Cohen” said the headline on a Black Press report. Those who read past the headline would learn that Justice Bruce Cohen recommended a freeze on further salmon farms around the Discovery Islands group near Campbell River until 2020. It’s up to the industry to show by that time that the risk is “minimal,” or farms there should be shut down. A B.C. Salmon Farming Association spokesman said only nine of 70 B.C. salmon farms are in that area. There are no current applications for more. Let’s say you decide to plunge in, and download the full report from www.

Sockeye salmon spawning in the Adams River in B.C.’s Interior.

cohencommission.ca. If you go to Volume 2, page 102, you will see a series of graphs that show sockeye runs from rivers other than the Fraser, from Washington all the way up to Alaska. It’s not a pretty sight. From Washington up to the Central Coast, the Skeena, Nass and up to Yukon’s Klukshu and Alaska’s Alsek, most runs show a decline starting in the 1980s or early 1990s. This includes runs that migrate down the west side of Vancouver Island, away from salmon farms. Alaska doesn’t allow farms, preferring “ranching” – a strategy that floods the ocean habitat with millions of hatchery fish. These are commercially fished and

marketed as “wild.” B.C.’s North Coast has never had salmon farms. The area has been subject to a moratorium since an NDP-controlled legislative committee gave its verdict on the problem in 2008. The popular villain in those days was sea lice. Skeena MLA Robin Austin chaired the committee that called for an end to open-pen salmon farms in five years. Then-agriculture minister Pat Bell approved one NDP recommendation, a moratorium on salmon farms in North Coast waters. This was after the Pacific Salmon Forum conducted its own four-year study, led by former fisheries minister John Fraser.

Similar to Cohen, Fraser concluded that there is no simple answer to this complex problem. And they agreed that salmon farms don’t explain it. Cohen’s report makes it clear that the problem is far larger than could possibly be explained by salmon farms. How about logging impact? Cohen concludes after much testimony that stream protection has improved significantly during the time of observed sockeye decline. Impact from extra runoff due to pine beetle infestation couldn’t be evaluated. Poaching on the Fraser? Cohen didn’t get around to that. His biggest concern was climate change, warming sensitive river waters

and affecting ocean conditions. During the Cohen commission hearings, the 2010 Fraser sockeye run came in gangbusters, with 35 million fish. One leading theory is that ash from an Alaska volcano fertilized the ocean, producing algae that supported more salmon feed. Could it be that salmon ranching from Alaska, Japan and elsewhere is simply depleting the food supply? That too is inconclusive. Finally, Tides Canada, a U.S. front group that diverts attention from U.S. salmon and oil tankers, spent $25,000 to publicize Cohen evidence. But only as it relates to B.C. salmon farms, and how bad they are.

Cadets selling poppies are a missed presence Editor: Once again another Remembrance Day is upon us. We will all gather to pay our respects and remember those who paid the ultimate price for the freedom we enjoy today. I have no doubt there will be the same outstanding presence of all the cadet organizations as there always has been in past years. What I missed seeing this year, was a ‘presence’ of cadets selling poppies. I realize many of the poppy boxes are now inside; and I salute those businesses for supporting the poppy fund. It could be the cadets were somewhere else other than the two malls I frequent. Maybe. The cadets have frequently attended the malls where I shop on other occasions, therefore I doubt it’s a problem having ‘permission’ to be there.. Whatever the reason (and I’m sure there is one) as a ‘vet’ myself, I’m only voicing my

disappointment at not seeing the poppies being sold...by the cadets. The war-time veterans used to be out in full force with their poppy boxes, proud and smartly turned out but now their ranks are thinning and there are fewer of them every year. I believe there is more meaning and import to buying a poppy from someone in uniform, young or old; whether they represent the past or the future... ’Lest We Forget’ D. Weston CD Mcpl Ret’d Richmond

Sermon should have been vetted Editor: I attended the Remembrance Day ceremonies on Sunday and felt humbled by the participation of the choirs, the current members of our military, and the aging veterans. I felt obligated, as one who has not experienced war first hand, to give my support. I also brought a relative who was for the first time experiencing a live remembrance day

observation. I had a couple of concerns with the ceremony, however. First, one that is a constant problem from year to year, is the inability to see, for those of us who don’t arrive early enough, to see the actual ceremony. Is there a possibility of getting some big screen TV’s for those who can not see because of the crowds? Secondly, and this is the first time that I’ve experienced this, the sermon by the religious figure is traditionally non-denominational. However, this year it seemed like the end of his sermon excluded those who do not believe that Jesus Christ is the son of god. Now some may say I am overreacting but this was the one comment made by my relative who asked the question, sarcastically, was it only Christians who fought and died in the war. I feel that these sermons should be vetted in light of our multi-cultural and multi-religious community. Jon Malchy Richmond

Railway Ave. greenway not a big priority Editor: In The Richmond Review’s outline of city council’s commitment on capital projects in 2013, there are many which are clearly essential.  I have great difficulty however, with the parks project allocation of “$2 million for a paved pathway on the Railway Avenue greenway.”  How can this be considered a priority and a need?  What purpose will it serve?  What is the justification for this $2 million, when it is realized that other major facility projects are yet to be decided upon?  This needs to be reassessed!  On the subject of the – “$16 million for road infra-structure projects”, it is hoped that at long last, action will be taken to improve the flow and safe movement of vehicles in the south-bound lane of Railway Avenue.  From Granville to Garry,

on problem gambling in our community

Some 14.77 kilograms of ecstasy were seized at Vancouver International Airport last year.

X-Press Youth Video Contest looking for submissions Local youth created videos to raise awareness about the impact of ecstasy use on individuals, families and the community, as part of the X-Press Youth Video Contest. And now the city’s being invited to check them out. Organized by the City of Richmond and Richmond Addictions Services, the contest culminates on Friday, Nov. 23 at Richmond

City Hall, during the Youth Red Carpet Viewing Party when the contest winners will be announced, including the winner of the $500 top prize. Local addiction specialists from Richmond Addiction Services have presented 23 information sessions to students at Richmond secondary schools, community centres and through local service providers. More than 500 students have been informed of the potential risks and dangers of ecstasy, in the context of health-and-wellness concerns associated with the use of alcohol

Students were helped in making their videos by the city’s media program, which provided access to video equipment and video skills workshops. A specially-funded project of the Richmond Media Lab, the X-Press Youth Video Contest is designed to generate youth-focussed and youth-created messages about the

dangers of ecstasy. The new videos will be used as a resource that will be deployed in classrooms, community-based organizations focusing on youth, and in the community as a whole. Funding was received from proceeds of B.C. Civil Forfeiture, which came into effect in 2006 with the goal of targetting the profit motive behind illegal activities. Proceeds from the sale of property believed to be instruments or proceeds of unlawful activities, like cars, houses and boats, are paid into a special account to be used for, among other things, the prevention

Kendo stand tall Members of the Steveston Kendo Club travelled down to Seattle last weekend to participate in the annual Pacific Northwest Kendo Tournament. The tournament brought together clubs from Hawaii, Mexico, Idaho, Oregon, Seattle. Alaska and the Vancouver area. While this year’s group was significantly smaller than other years, the local members still managed to pull

through with several awards. Sean O’Sullivan won the high school boys’ division, Wendy Robillard was second in senior ladies’ black belt and Ryan Murao was third in 1-2 Dan black belt. The senior team of Leo Leung, David Yao, O’Sullivan, Murao and Paul Lee was third in the team event. And while Kenta Muramatsu, 11, and Brandon Kato Wilson, 16, did not place they showed great promise.

REVIEW

’Eyes, Hawks test mettle by Don Fennell Sports Editor Sometimes the score doesn’t tell the full story, as in the Delta Ice Hawks’ 3-0 win over the Richmond Sockeyes last week. While the Hawks were fully deserving of their 16th victory of the season, extending their overall lead over the Sockeyes to six points atop the Pacific International Junior Hockey League, the Sockeyes’ effort was equally proficient though they had nothing to show for it. “I thought it was a real good game, and structurally a bit of a chess match,” said Sockeyes’ bench boss Aaron Wilbur. “I didn’t feel either team gave up a lot of chances and both were good on the special teams.” But while the loss— any loss—stings, there were also a number of lessons that the Sockeyes can take away from the game, said Wilbur.

Sports Editor Coaches always figure their team can play better and Bruce Haddow is no exception. But even he struggled for words befitting of the Hugh Boyd Trojans junior varsity’s impressive 4012 first-round B.C. high school football playoff victory over the visiting Handsworth Royals last Thursday. “With one penalty and no turnovers—and I thought the penalty was almost borderline—that’s about as clean a football game as you’re going to see,” said the Trojans’ usually well-spoken head coach. “When you play like that you give yourself a chance to win any game.” Pull back the layers a bit further, though, and one begins to appreciate this Trojans team is special— regardless of how far they advance this post-season. A quiet-spoken group of players, they keenly listen in practice and then heed their coaches’ advice on the field. “This is a team—and the last game is a perfect example—where everyone contributes,”said Haddow. “No one tried to do more than their job. Football is tough enough without having to worry about doing the job of the guy beside you. You need to trust each other.” That was most apparent on the offensive line, which Haddow said was “particularly exceptional.” “Adam Schuck, Alec Forrest, Fred Xu, Max Grenzberg, Vaughan Hull and Darby Kwan all did outstanding jobs,” he said. “The linemen are often under-appreciated because there’s a tendency to follow the ball and you only notice them when there’s a sack. But it’s such an important position and with so much blitzing and people coming from every direction you need to be pretty smart to play there.” Anthony Giorno paced the Trojans (which led 24-6 at halftime) with two touchdowns, while Jacob Tubajon, Gabe Saklofsky and Johnson Amisi had the others. But as impressive as the

Appointments recommended. See your pharmacist for details.

sports Another day, another win as Chaos now undefeated in nine The Richmond Chaos continues to defy the odds. The Metro Women’s Soccer League Third Division side remains undefeated this season after extending its undefeated sting to nine games with a 3-0 victory over Delta United B in Delta. Both teams stood for a minute of silence before the contest in respect of Canada’s war veterans. Then the soccer battle was on. Newcomer Lauren Tasaka, who just finished her college, season with the Langara Falcons to the team and tallied an assist against Sur Del in her debut last week, scored her first goal 15 minutes in on a hard strike from

about 20 feet out, set up by left outside mid Dani Pacheco. In a play where Pacheco took the ball deep to the left side and attracted some United defenders, her pass found Tasaka who made no mistake. The first half ended 1-0 although the Chaos had several good scoring chances to add to their lead as Pacheco bounced a shot off the crossbar and Janessa Murao misfired in front of the Delta keeper. In the second half, Tasaka was set free on a great lead pass from centre mid Erin Lee. Tasaka again made no mistake putting the ball past the charging United keeper

coming full speed off her line. The Chaos closed the scoring with a great effort by sweeper Alexis Ford, who was playing up for a Chaos corner kick by Lee from the left side. Ford found the ball through several United players and buried it in the right side of the goal. Chaos keeper Julia Badock earned the clean sheet, while Ford, Jen Forsberg, Victoria Groff and Natalie Sczerkowsky led a strong defence for the Chaos. The Chaos play at home next Sunday versus Coastal FC Surf. Kickoff is 5 p.m. at Hugh Boyd Park.

Fortunes turn in Sockeyes’ favour From Page 16 “There’s a lot of room for us to grow from a technical aspect and while I think our five-on-five game defensively is getting a lot better, it’ll get even better as individuals learn to tighten up their own games just by understanding how they can contribute more (in a defensive role).” Less than 48 hours after losing to Delta, the Sockeyes outscored a North Delta Devils’ team 5-3 in its own rink Saturday. The Sockeyes wasted little time getting going, with Scott Wessa opening the scoring on the power play at 7:27 of the first period. It was one of three power play goals the Sockeyes would net (in nine opportuni-

ties), with Jeremy Hamaguchi and Justin White also scoring with the man-advantage. Daniel Tait and Liam Lawson had the other Richmond goals. And similar to their loss to Delta—only this time in the Sockeyes’ favour—the result was in decided the third period as Lawson scored at 15:13 and White at 19:44 to break a 3-3 deadlock. Richmond hosts Ridge Meadows Flames Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Minoru Arenas, after which they’ll have a full week between games before playing North Delta in a rematch here Nov. 22. •Richmond was without Derek Hughes last weekend as the talented forward played two games with the Pentic-

ton Vees of the B.C. Hockey League. It was also a big weekend for alumni, as former Sockeyes’ goaltender Jonah Imoo (now of the Powell River Kings) was selected the top goaltender at the 2012 World Junior A Challenge played in Yarmouth, N.S. Imoo won four of five games for Canada West, his only loss coming in the final game, 7-3, to the U.S. on Sunday. Richmond’s Troy Stecher, captain of the Penticton Vees, was also selected to the tournament all-star team. He was an assistant captain for Canada West and helped lead the squad to a 3-1 record with victories over the Czech Republic 7-0, Russia 4-3 and Canada East 1-0.

OF PET THE WEEK

“PORKY” NEEDS A GOOD HOME WITH YOU!

”PORKY”, ID # 281177, MALE, SMOOTH HAIR CROSS, 6 MONTHS & 2 WEEKS Porky is a sweet little guinea pig who is a bit on the shy side. Porky was transferred to the BC SPCA Richmond Education & Adoption Centre recently, and now we are doing gradual socialization exercises with him to earn his trust and befriend him. He loves his greens, and is usually found munching on parsley, cilantro, carrots and other healthy treats. If you are looking for a buddy for a guinea pig you already have, perhaps with proper and gradual introduction he would make a great companion! To learn more about proper guinea pig care, please visit: http://www.spca.bc.ca/pet-care/care-behaviour/guinea-pigs/
