Man who shot sixyear-old boy pleads guilty

Christmas food drives take bite out of hunger

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The 54-year-old Richmond man who accidentally shot a six-year-old boy in the chest with a rifle in the summer of 2011, has pled guilty to criminal negligence causing bodily harm. Fang Chi had been facing four counts, including pointing a firearm and unlawfully discharging a firearm, but his lawyer, Vince Michaels told The Richmond Review Thursday that Chi has pled guilty to only one criminal count. The young boy suffered the relatively minor gunshot wound during an early afternoon incident on Aug. 2, 2011 at 10760 Whistler Crt., near Steveston Highway and Gilbert. The last RCMP update released the week of the incident, indicated the boy was recovering in hospital, and in stable condition. Chi is being prosecuted by Crown counsel Jennifer Carmichael, and the case will be heard by veteran Richmond provincial court Judge Ron Fratkin. Michaels wouldn’t indicate what sentence the defence will be arguing is appropriate, and Carmichael could not be reached for comment by press time

Results of classroom collections, office food drives and larger community campaigns poured into the Richmond Food Bank this week, making Christmas brighter for a record number of people who rely on donations. “We appreciate the support the community’s given for the people we serve,” said Alex Nixon, the food bank’s operations co-ordinator. “We hope that people will continue to give.” Volunteers at the food bank on Cedarbridge Way are now serving record numbers—over 1,500 people each week, up from 1,300 last year at this time. On Thursday, volunteers were busy unloading donations at the food bank warehouse, while other volunteers distributed food to those lined for food. See Page 3

Donations pour in to Richmond Christmas Fund Contributions to local charity grow, as organizers remain hopeful target will be met for 2012 by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

M

ore than 2,000 lowincome people of all ages saw Richmond’s community spirit first-hand this month with the help of the Richmond Christmas Fund.

“People have stepped forward from all walks of life and it’s been very gratifying,” said Wayne Duzita, community chair of the Richmond Christmas Fund. Cash donations to the fund have totalled $170,000 this season—shy of the fund’s $200,000 goal. Nonetheless, the total is 15 per cent greater than last year. “There is no doubt that the community this year stepped forward at a different level than they have in years past,” said Duzita. “Just the fact that we have a larger base of people who came forward really shows that the organization and the contribution of the community was there for us to support families in need.” Money raised goes toward food vouchers for those in need, allowing 2,000 local residents to enjoy the holidays with fresh groceries. The fund also distributed donations of new toys to hundreds of children ages 15 and under. “An incredible amount of toys came in. We were able to pretty well fulfill all the wishes of those

who registered with enough good quality toys for all their children,” said Duzita. Some fortunate families have been matched with a generous sponsor for a custom food and gift hamper. Sponsors include individuals, families and companies who create a personalized food and gift package for their sponsored family based on its need.

As for those who registered for help this year, organizers noticed a change. This year brought a greater number of seniors, single men and smaller single-parent families.

A boost in the fund’s profile helped with donations, said Duzita, noting support came from all over. Realtors, Richmond’s three Rotary clubs, the Richmond Auto Mall and Dueck, business professionals, professional athletes and many individuals who’ve never contributed before all came forward. “The profile created this year

with the help of The Review, more people came forward. We had stronger support from the business and individuals in the community.” The Richmond Christmas Fund program is also made possible with over 120 volunteers who contribute their time each year to help with registration, distribution and fundraising events.

Food bank relies Salvation Army warms hearts all How to help on the community year with December donations From Page 1 And while the volume was impressive, donations are down from last year, Nixon said. “We typically see the number of people needing help increase after Christmas, so we expect to serve even more people in January.” The number of people who rely on the food bank jumped significantly following the 2008 recession and continues to rise steadily. Local seniors, working poor, people with mental illness, newly unemployed and families struggling to make ends meet all depend on contributions from the community. “We keep hearing that the economy has turned around, and it has, but we’re not seeing that on the ground quite yet,” said Nixon. Richmond is often considered a community that’s affluent, but Nixon said there are many areas of the city that aren’t. He said a recent report noted income levels for many areas of the city are either stagnant or have decreased. “We are a blessed community in a lot of ways, but at the same time there are a lot of people who are struggling.” As a grassroots organization that doesn’t receive government support, the Richmond Food Bank relies solely on the generosity of the community. Regardless of the amount, all donations help the food bank serve the community, particularly cash contributions, since the food bank’s buying power allows it to turn a $1 donation into $6 worth of food.

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter They’re outside storefronts, malls and even the casino ringing bells for the less fortunate. A small army of workers have been dutifully drawing attention to the Christmas kettles located around the city, collecting money for the Salvation Army Richmond branch. Kettle donations, which are accepted until Christmas, go toward the branch’s weekly community luncheon, helps people buy groceries throughout the year and funds the operation of a local 10-bed shelter. Each year the branch also warms hearts during the Christmas season by hosting a Christmas dinner and offering low-income families their choice of winter coats and warm clothes—collected largely by local realtors—to take home. According to the Salvation Army B.C., donations to the kettles are down this year across the province. “The dollars raised through this effort are not only used at Christmas time, but throughout the year as the funds provide resources for our overall operation for the year ahead.  We want to encourage support-

ers to please donate when they see a kettle and help,” said Major Ken Ritson. Last year, generous donors across B.C. contributed $3.8 million to the cause. This year’s province-wide goal is $4 million.

London Heritage Farm is getting into the Christmas spirit this year with a light display it hopes will draw people to its tea room and gift shop. Thanks to fundraising work last year, money was raised to purchase Christmas lights that now adorn the heritage site that sits on the waterfront. “Although we may never rival Van Deusen Gardens for their light display, but we’d like to become the Van Deusen of Richmond,” said Egon Frank, director and vice president of the London Heritage Farm Society. While he’s hoping more people will check out the lights as part of a city tour of Christmas displays, Frank said people should also be drawn by the home-baked scones and sweets, which is served with London Lady tea. “And our gift shop features many unique and hand-crafted items and home-made jams for gift giving,” Frank said. London Heritage Farm, located at 6511 Dyke Rd., between No. 2 Road and Gilbert, is open Saturdays and Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. This upcoming weekend will also feature Christmas carolers and piano players playing Christmas tunes. —Martin van den Hemel

Elementary school students bring Christmas cheer to airport travellers

fun and fitness at the pool. Come enjoy some

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Local students are spreading Christmas cheer to the world—and it all started in the classroom. The crafty creations of students from 30 elementary school classes in Metro Vancouver—many from Richmond—are decorating a series of Christmas trees at Vancouver International Airport’s International Terminal this busy holiday season. It’s part of the Vancouver Airport Authority’s 14th annual tree decorating contest. Students first got to work in their classrooms, designing everything from reindeers made of squished cans and origami to paper mache globes and angels. Then late last month they converged on the terminal to trim trees. The trees have since been hung from columns lining the arrivals area of the terminal. Trees with the most votes from a panel of airport concession managers will net prizes for the classes behind the creativity. The contest—now in its final year—has proven fun for the kids, while providing a lesson about families in need. Students collected over 300 non-perishable food items and local businesses sponsored trees at $300 each—all supporting Quest Food Exchange and its efforts to help low-income families this Christmas. “Not only does this program create a festive spirit at YVR, but it also helps us give back to our community thanks in a large part to our partners who sponsor the trees,” said Christopher Gilliland, manager of retail sales and service programs at the airport. “Last year, we raised $9,000 for Quest Food Exchange to provide holiday

An already harrowing Wednesday morning commute snarled by snow, came to a halt on No. 2 Road when a large tree came crashing down onto the road, just north of Blundell around 8 a.m., its limbs stretching all the way across the street and clipping a BMW sedan in the process. There were no reported injuries in the incident, according to city spokesperson Ted Townsend. “Obviously we’re fortunate that nobody was injured,” he said, adding that another fallen tree impacted traffic at Williams Road and Railway.

Vancouver mayor’s foster son pleads guilty Jinagh NavasRivas, 22, will spend minimum 3 years in federal prison by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The former foster son of Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson will be spending a minimum of three years in prison for his part in a diala-dope-and-gun ring. Jinagh Navas-Rivas, who lived with the Robertson family for two years until 2009, was one of five suspects arrested following a six-month undercover RCMP investigation that began in the summer of 2011.

Federal Crown Counsel Ernie Froess said Navas-Rivas appeared in Richmond provincial court on Wednesday, where he pled guilty to one count of drug trafficking, and one count of transferring a firearm. Navas-Rivas is scheduled to be sentenced on March 13, 2013, and is represented by defense counsel Emmet Duncan, who did not return a request for comment. He will be sentenced by Judge Patrick Chen. Although Froess wouldn’t comment on what length of sentence he will be seeking for Navas-Rivas, he noted that a conviction for transferring a firearm carries a mandatory minimum three-year federal sentence. Last December, The Richmond Review first revealed that Navas-Rivas

was caught up in the RCMP investigation, and his link to Robertson. After investigators were unable to locate Navas-Rivas, an arrest warrant was issued for him, but he did not turn himself in until several days later. He was kept in custody for a few months before being released earlier this year. Navas-Rivas was charged as part of an 18-count indictment, and has now pled guilty to one count of transferring a .22-calibre Ruger pistol with ammunition without the proper authorization while in a car travelling through New Westminster. Navas-Rivas was in the care of the Robertson family—including Robertson’s wife Amy and three other children—in 2008 and 2009, and was a track athlete while a student

at Prince of Wales Secondary in Vancouver. Amidst the undercover police investigation, and after commiting the criminal offence just a day earlier that will send him to jail for three years, Navas-Rivas joined Gregor Robertson on stage on Nov. 19, 2011 during Robertson’s victory speech following his successful municipal re-election bid. On Nov. 18, 2011, Navas-Rivas was with co-accused Leslie James Miller, 30, when he was accused of transferring a firearm and ammunition knowing that he wasn’t authorized to do so. While the RCMP investigation launched in June of 2011, the first charge involving Navas-Rivas occurred many months later, on Nov. 4, and involved the trafficking of

cocaine in Vancouver. Details about how police discovered the dial-a-dope operation, and learned of Navas-Rivas’ connection to Robertson, have not yet been revealed in open court. But that’s expected to become a part of the public record on his sentencing date next year. Dial-a-dope operations involve drug dealers who leave a phone number—sometimes on business cards—with users and addicts, and when drugs are sought, arrangements are made by phone about the quantity and type of drugs, and drop-off locations where the drugs are exchanged for cash. Also charged in the case were: Vingh Hoang (David) Le, Willie Sing Cheung Truong and Kwok Pui (Raymond) Ma.

Union won’t confirm reports of Port Mann ice falling last winter Province should have known and prevented risk: NDP critic by Sarah Payne and Jeff Nagel Black Press “Absolutely unacceptable.” B.C. Transportation Minister Mary Polak used that phrase repeatedly Thursday afternoon at a press conference to address the closure one day earlier of the brand new Port Mann Bridge when falling chunks of snow and ice damaged vehicles crossing the span. “Yesterday’s events on the Port Mann Bridge were absolutely unacceptable,” she told reporters. “Like everyone else, I was feeling horrified at the images people were sending in. It was absolutely shocking. “I can’t imagine what it must have felt like for those motorists going across the bridge and seeing huge pieces of ice coming down around them. It’s absolutely unacceptable.” Polak and Mike Proudfoot, CEO of the Transportation Investment Corp. (TI Corp.) said it’s up to the contractor, Kiewit Flatiron, to come up with a solution — at no cost to taxpayers. “This design for the bridge contemplates measures for the accumulation of snow and ice,” Proudfoot said. “Those haven’t been effective so the ball’s back in the contractor’s court to come up with a prop-

er solution.” Said Polak: “We will be looking to the contractor to provide us not only with a long-term, permanent solution that ensures this never, ever occurs again but, also, an immediate fix to the problem so that the bridge is open and indeed safe for the travelling public.” Still, they made no guarantees that weather conditions will not force another closure of the bridge. Both were grilled by reporters on what measures were in place to ensure there are no problems with accumulation of snow and ice. Proudfoot said centre pylons are designed to eliminate structural points where snow can accumulate and the cables are covered in plastic, and snow should have slid down the cables and dissipated. He also said the Port Mann “was designed by one of the most prominent experts in cablestayed bridges. It goes through an independent check by a separate firm, which is also an internationally recognized expert in cable-stayed bridges. And the TI Corp. has engineers who review it prior to the commencement of work.” Polak was also asked about reports that workers raised concerns previously about potential problems with snow and ice, and whether an option for heated cables was presented to the province or TI Corp. “”Nothing of that nature was ever brought to the attention of the ministry and I don’t believe it was brought to the attention

of TI Corp.,” she said. Earlier in the day, the main union representing workers on the Port Mann Bridge wouldn’t confirm whether its members had raised falling ice as a safety concern last winter. Asked if the issue was recorded as a concern at health and safety meetings, Ironworkers Local 97 president Cecil Damery would only say: “Snow was an issue last year also.” Damery said he had to be “careful what I say” because the union works closely with bridge builder KiewitFlatiron. The Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC), another union whose members worked mainly on the highway side of the $3.3-billion Port Mann Highway 1 Project and less frequently on the bridge, said its reps did not hear of falling ice concerns. “The issue about ice falling was never raised to them and it was never raised at any of our mass safety meetings,” CLAC spokesman Alex Pannu said. WorkSafe BC spokesperson Donna Freeman said the workplace safety authority has no reports of falling ice being a concern, but added the issue could still have been raised and resolved locally. NDP transportation critic Harry Bains said it would be “very troubling” if reports are true that workers had flagged the falling ice risk and the province did nothing to prevent it prior to Wednesday’s four-hour shutdown of

the bridge. But Bains argues the government should have known anyway that snow and ice falls from other cable-stayed bridges of similar design, where cables from the outer bridge rails cross over top of traffic to central support towers. Bridges with falling ice problems exist in Sweden, the U.K. and Boston. “If they knew, why did they not consider eliminating that risk?” Bains asked. TI Corp. officials said Tuesday the cables should have sluiced snow or ice off without dropping onto the bridge deck. They also confirmed the cables are not heated to prevent icing. Bains said either a retrofit to ensure deicing — or whatever other technology is suitable — must be performed even if it costs much more now than it would have during construction.

Karl Nylund of Abbotsford surveys the damage to his Subaru on Wednesday afternoon. Nylund’s rear window was shattered by falling ice on the Port Mann Bridge.

It’s not acceptable to shut down the bridge for lengthy periods when similar snow and ice conditions develop, he said, or else motorists will be scared to driver over the Port Mann in winter. “There’s no other choice but to fix the problem,” Bains said. “Why didn’t they do this before? They ought to have known.” If the ministry did know about the issue but chose not to build in

a better solution, Bains wants to know if it was to cut costs. “Was this because of money or because they simply never thought

about it and never did proper due diligence?” ICBC has received more than 100 claims of vehicles damaged on the Port Mann Bridge Wednesday. Two vehicle occupants were injured and one was hospitalized. Motorists described the falling ice chunks as large — a few feet long — and cracking and in some cases punching through windows. TI Corp. has said drivers who travelled across the bridge during that period won’t be charged tolls and the company will cover ICBC insurance deductibles for vehicles damaged by falling snow and ice on the bridge.

From Page 6 Asked why the relatively light snowfall was having such an impact on trees, Townsend said that could have been because the slushy snow had a high moisture content, adding to its weight. Elsewhere, tree branches were bending under the weight of the snow, slowing traffic to a crawl, and leading families to scramble for gloves,

scarves and boots as they ushered children to school. City spokesperson Kim Decker said city works crews, realizing snowfall was in the forecast, began pre-treating top priority routes at about 1 a.m. Wednesday. More staff were brought in at 4:30 a.m., tasked with clearing access to city facilities like fire halls, community

centres, and the RCMP headquarters on No. 5 Road. But heavy snow didn’t hit Richmond until later in the morning, starting around 6 a.m., which coincided with the morning rush hour.

bogged down on the roadway as traffic congestion increased as the morning commute went on. “Unfortunately the snow arrived during peak morning rush hour. The speed of traffic naturally slows down as volumes increase during rush hour. As well, traffic generally slows down during bad weather. City snow ploughs and salters were susceptible to the same traffic conditions and therefore were caught in the traffic congestion,” Decker said. Decker said other communities reported similar conditions and encountered similar difficulties in dealing with the snowfall. By noon on Wednesday, city crews had plough and/or salted 1,480 lane kilometres and used 112 metric tonnes of salt. Coun. Derek Dang said the city’s top priority is always to do the main streets. “I’m kind of surprised that the main roads were the issue,” he said. Generally, following a heavy snowfall, the complaints involve people on the side roads that aren’t cleared, salted or sanded. Dang suggested that perhaps it was the timing of the snowfall, and the snow’s heavy, wet consistency, that hampered the city’s response. Curiously, Dang’s political party, Richmond First, tweeted during the snowfall: “Lots of snow and ice today. Do you feel #RichmondBC should invest more of your tax dollars in snow removal equipment?”

EDITORIAL: No easy answers as tragedy unfolds There are events so vivid and horrifying they give us all pause to reflect and wonder what we could do to avert such tragedy in the future. One such occurred in Newtown, Conn. last week, where a shooting rampage left 27 people, including 20 elementary school students, dead. In the aftermath, an anguished chorus of voices erupted over social media, on radio and television, expressing everything from understandable anger and outrage to debates over whether gun control or more attention to mental health should be the priority. Politicians, predictably, have been quick to add platitudes to the tumult.

Practical leadership is likely to be more challenging. There are no easy answers to why this tragedy occurred, and, consequently, no quick fixes for the issues it raises. Simplistic solutions may work in the fantasy world of the movies, but they seldom stand the test in real life. We can only shake our heads at the more hysterical responses to the events at Sandy Hook Elementary – including the actions of an 11-yearold Utah boy who days later brought a gun to his school, apparently without the knowledge of his parents, because he feared for his safety. Perhaps the most important thing

is that the public – in the U.S., in Canada, and around the world – has been faced with incontrovertible evidence that there is a problem. The only positive we can take away from the horrific incident is that it is one of those events that generate enough emotion to provide a tipping point for public opinion. All the while we shrug at such violent incidents, all the while we turn away, resigned to the notion that this is the way of the modern world and there is nothing that can be done about it, we become a party to the bloodshed. Anyone with an ounce of feeling who looks at the class and family

pictures of the innocent victims of the latest tragedy must say – at some point – that this is wrong; enough is enough. The slaughter at Sandy Hook has made many prepared to reexamine their own beliefs; to put issues such as gun control and mental health on the table, instead of sweeping them aside with the conditioned reflex of entrenched attitudes. For the tragedy itself we can only have sorrow. But for the fact that there are still millions in this world with compassion, decency and humanity, who abhor violence and who want to work towards a better world, we must be thankful. ‑Peace Arch News

I tried everything to loose five pounds Editor: Every year about this time it’s the same old thing with me and my belt. Do I buy a new one or is there enough leather in the old one to drill another hole? Another hole into a piece of leather so long that by the time I have one end into the second belt loop of my pants, the buckle and twelve inches of premium cowhide are still snaking their way across the floor. Why even wear a belt? Why not just let my ever expanding belly run free? Let it bump into people! Let it rub up against total strangers on the bus! Make them feel as uncomfortable as I am. And besides, without a belt I could tie these shoes (if there’re the ones with the laces, I can’t see from here) without the fear of passing out. Without a belt maybe my face won’t turn that bright red waddling up them four stairs to the bakery. And, maybe I wouldn’t sweat like a boxer in training when the weather gets warmer than 12˚C. Or maybe I could loose weight? Been there done that, bought the XXXL teeshirt. My Mother-in-Law figures it should be easy for a loser like me to loose weight. God bless her for believing in me but I’ve tried more times than a Mars Bar has calories. And, I’ve tried every method known to late night television. All the gadgets, pills, powders, pulleys and plastic power pumping weight reducing marvels of modern science that this one person can afford on easy monthly payment plans. Its that darned good looking tanned guy with

Buy a new belt or lose weight?

more ruts in his belly than a Saskatchewan dirt road after a rain storm, with his equally tanned good looking female counter part, that want to make me, a better me. All you have to do is loose weight and all your problems are solved, or so they would have you believe. After you loose the weight your lighting is even better. Your before picture with all the extra baggage has that glaring bright light, all so flattering. Then once the weight magically disappears the lighting is warm and soft and makes your skin look like rippled toffee, that glistens and oozes health. That couple suck me in every time! And they’re on every channel! Oh sure their face is different, but the well toned body is the same. They just change the head for each and every new gimmick that comes along. And gosh golly darn they all fit under the bed. Every bed in my house has some sort

of life changing equipment under it! Because, they gave me the idea to put it there! Every time I say my bedtime prayers I bang my knees! If they had of told me it fits easily in front of the car in the garage, it’d probably be there. Why? Because they use hypnosis to make us believe in their product. There can be no other reason. How else can you explain spending thirty dollars on forty-two cents of rubber tubing that you somehow magically think will be the answer to all of your problems. And then for some reason you want to stuff it under the bed. I’ve been scammed several times on my way to an easy healthier skinny me. Like the time I sent away $52 to South Africa for an appetite suppressing pill that’s made from crushed bushes that tribesmen have used for centuries to curb hunger. They didn’t mention that that was all they had to

eat. In mid-January I signed up for a two year gym membership. By the end of January I was only going there to use the showers. All the hot water I wanted and no Motherin-Law banging on the door to use the commode. Owners of the gym loved that I showered there, they said I was an inspiration for the others to work out harder, kind of an impersonal personal trainer. My next weight loss plan was a fail safe food system that would be delivered right to my door. Donny Osmond’s little sister with that great big toothy grin, all looking slim and trim praising the weight reducing qualities of prepackaged food had me hooked. All my meals for a whole month delivered right to my house. Problem was in two weeks I had eaten what they sent me for the whole month. “Try eating from a

smaller plate,” my wife suggested. “I heard this will reduce the size of the portion intake.” What’s with you skinny people? Is eat a bad word? So now I’m eating from a plate that Is used to put under a teacup when company came over for scones. The rule my wife imposes is that I can put as much food as I want on the plate, but I can only have one plate. So I pile it high with as much food as I can. I can’t keep my food on this tiny plate, and I’m so hungry I don’t want to loose a single morsel. I’m now chasing every calorie from my plate to my pants to the chair and on to the floor. I’m now giving the dog serious competition. It’s my food! I want it! I need it! OOOH did the wife just drop something? Darn, Rex beat me to it! Which brings me to the best dietary system I’ve found so far, and quite by accident. Eating food from off the floor. Yes folks if you want to loose five, or ten pounds in just two days simply send me thirty-five dollars plus shipping and handling and I’ll ship you a three day supply of my “Food Found on Floor.” I lost five pounds! That’s one-quarter of twenty pounds! I’m almost there! Just by eating food I found on the floor. So if you want to loose weight quickly, just do as I did, eat food off the floor and quickly lose your appetite to a healthier, slimmer you. Tomorrow I’m loosing 210 lbs., I’m taking her to the bus station. I’m so excited about my extra weight loss, thanks to the Greyhound system. Bob Niles Richmond

Walmart mess has the makings of a win-win Editor: Re: “Walmart mall to become ‘urban village centre’” (Dec. 19). Reminder: The location is east of Garden City Road and north of the Garden City Lands and Alderbridge Way. In the article, Michael Wolfe gave the damning detail: every tree on the Walmart mall site will be killed in the current plan. Nothing will be spared. The good news is that Richmond council hasn’t voted yet. They’ll discuss the plan further and vote when a big but less future-shaking glitch is gone. To fix the Walmart mall plan now, before the moonscape stage, we need a council majority of five members with commitment to conservation. Or with values like heeding citizens before developers. Or gratefulness for our viewscape legacies. Yes, new saplings might be planted later, but the plan itself implies they’re window dressing. They wouldn’t save even bits of the ecosystem, let alone the viewscapes from the Garden City Lands area. When looking north from where visitors have always contemplated the natural viewscape of wetlands, woods and mountains, who will ooh and aah at the lovely Walmart, the new gem of the setting? (Okay, maybe a few from city hall.) Sadly, the plan just needed to respect the city’s own map of “ESAs”, environmentally sensitive areas. There was an ESA on the Alderbridge Way edge of the site, and that remnant of mixed urban forest, teeming with diverse wildlife, could have been saved. It still should be. The ecosystem to conserve is rare for Richmond, and by nature it’s a wildlife corridor. It’s from Garden City Road to No. 4 Road and would be at least 20 metres wide. With some needed upkeep, it would also save the natural viewscapes, a truly unique

legacy. In a largely-ESA space just east of the Walmart mall site, there was a two-acre natural area, but the mall plan has devoured it. Thankfully, Coun. Harold Steves is objecting, and he’s also brought in the wildlife corridor at council meetings. Tellingly, by the way, the Walmart mall company sprang into action when Polygon, the giant developer, wanted changes to add value to its future condos nearby. The mall company is now planning a living green screen to give condo buyers better views, and it’s added a parkade-rooftop green space that will further enhance their wellness and Polygon sales. When council asks, the Walmart mall company should act as responsibly for the people of Richmond. After all, the company actually sought lower density. (City hall pushed for higher density. Mind-boggling.) If the company conserves the natural area and wildlife corridor, an effect will be lower density. They’ll need to rework their plans, but they’ll be seen as responsible. The mess has the makings of a win-win. The council members who would enable that need our support, and we need their votes. Jim Wright President, Garden City Conservation Society

Leave the snow geese alone Editor: I live on the top floor at Gilmore Gardens, with windows that face north and west. This gives me a spectacular view of the North Shore mountains and a very pleasant view of the snow geese as they fly out to their feeding grounds. At 8 o’clock one morning I watched as they flew up the middle arm of the river in their precise formations. It was a different story a couple of hours later when a huge mass of geese flew back in utter confusion. They appeared to be in panic, like a crowd running from a fire. I thought they had been rousted from their feeding ground. Then I realized to my horror that they were heading straight for the airport. By a miracle they did not run into one of the small float planes or a big jet. Not this time. Leave the geese alone—they have lost so much of their natural habitat they have little choice but to feed on the planted grass. Ella Johnson Richmond

Editor: “Time to trim the spending tree,” Dec. 14. Your editorial should have gone a step further and included the City of Richmond. Richmond council applaud themselves for the latest 2.8 per cent property tax increase but they could do better by another 1 per cent reduction—the Reserve Fund. For at least the past 15 years this administration has run an annual surplus (over taxation) of between $1.5 million and an obscene $6 million. This money should be directed to the Reserve Fund rather than being spent on various department’s wish lists. One might draw the conclusion that either this continual surplus (over taxation) is intentional to satisfy a huge spending appetite or the number crunchers are incompetent. It would be interesting to see if taxpayers really support many of the big ticket items council endorses—Olympic museum at the Richmond Olympic Oval, Railway path project, sister city visits, etc. They certainly didn’t approve the proposed art exhibit purchases a few years back. Perhaps, taxpayers should be given an opportunity to express their views on some of these issues. Council may be in for a big surprise! L.B. Black Richmond

Poor response to snow storm Editor: Why was there not any snow clearing Wednesday morning? We knew this was coming and the roads were not safe. Buses were getting stuck for god’s sake. I’d like an explanation of the city’s policy in this regard. Public safety has taken a back seat to land development apparently. This is simply unacceptable. Bernie Koestlmaier Richmond

Artwork that offers a tribute to B.C.’s First Nations is now flying high at Sea Island’s airport. Artists Valerie Malesku and Michelle Stoney designed a set of street banners for the Vancouver Airport Authority. Their artwork is now featured on 36 banners hanging along Grant McConachie Way, the airport’s departures and arrivals ramps and throughout airport parkade. Malesku, from Queen Charlotte City, and Michelle Stoney, from Hazelton, won the airport’s inaugural street banner contest celebrating First Nations art in B.C. “The Airport Authority and YVR Art Foundation’s quest to capture our province’s unique sense of place and cultural heritage was reflected in this contest,” said Anne Murray, the airport’s vice-president of community and environmental affairs, in a statement. Malesku is of Cree ancestry and has lived in Haida Gwaii for the past 40 years. Her banner design incorporates land, sea, sky and eagles in flight. She draws inspiration from many coastal artists and works in many traditional styles, such as carving, button blankets and jewelry. Stoney is of Gitxsan ancestry and became interested in art through her grandfather who is a master carver. Her design is of a raven transforming into an airplane. The artist has studied at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, where she learned how to mix contemporary art and new techniques with traditional First Nations art she learned from her grandfather.

Talents of rising stars showcased in annual Richmond competition by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

A

“very very high level” of young talent impressed adjudicators in this year’s Richmond Music Festival, with standout pianists as young as 12 and 13 taking home top prizes.

“Both senior piano adjudicators…mentioned that the level of students is so high,” said Victor Shevtsov, president of the Richmond Music Festival Society. The three-week festival offers a competitive venue for young music students in piano, voice, strings, guitar and woodwinds. Professional adjudicators give students feedback on their performances before the best return for a gala concert, where a host of awards are presented. This year’s festival, which concluded Nov. 24, hosted 700 young musicians from Richmond and across Metro Vancouver. Vera Lu, 13, earned one of the top prizes: the $500 Richmond Music Festival scholarship and trophy for most outstanding gala performance. Lu, a student of Shevtsov, played Bach’s challenging “Goldberg Variations” at the gala concert.

“She did so well,” said Shevtsov. “Bach is Bach. It’s not such an impressive and virtuosic piece for the audience, but still the audience was absolutely quiet listening to her.” The piece has proved a match for Lu’s smaller hands, and her performance amazed adjudicators and earned her the top gala prize. Lu is now preparing for a Bach competition held in New York, her teacher said. Angeni Wang, 13, received the prestigious Tom Lee Trophy, awarded to the best overall performer in all divisions at the festival. Wang, who has been a piano student of Shevtsov for nearly four years, scored high marks in all festival classes. “She plays music that requires a lot of maturity,” said Shevtsov. “She’s getting more and more secure and technically brilliant when she performs on the stage.” Wang will be on the stage again on Jan. 26, this time with her brother Arthur Wang, 12. The pair will perform as guests of Richmond Orchestra in a concert at Gilmore Park United Church. This year’s festival demonstrated the strong dedication to music many students are now showing at an early age—especially in Richmond, where children of Chinese ethnicity usually study at least one instrument, said Shevtsov. “I’ve stopped being surprised,” he said. “Half of my class are students of very high ambitions and dedication to music. They practice so hard and want to participate in international competitions and want to achieve high results.” Some of them, like Angeni Wang, are dreaming of becoming professional musicians. Others are already eyeing other professions while developing a lifelong love of music.

“I’ve stopped being surprised. Half of my class are students of very high ambitions and dedication to music.” – Victor Shevtsov

sports Richmond Sockeyes, current and alumni, took time out to coach several Richmond and Seafair Peewee and Bantam A1 and A2 hockey players Wednesday at the Richmond Ice Centre. Top row, from left: Carter Popoff (now of the Vancouver Giants), Turner Popoff (now of the Langley Rivermen), Scott Wessa (current Sockeye), Kootenay Alder (current Sockeye) and Brayden Low (now of the Everett Silvertips).

Time out For Others Sockeyes bring hockey community closer together through support for local charity “One Love, One Heart, Let’s get together and feel alright!” –Bob Marley

by Don Fennell Sports Editor In his capacity as strength and conditioning coach of the Richmond Sockeyes, and throughout the hockey community, Erick Cronier has developed many friendships. And it’s being able to count on their support that inspired him to create a charity whose goal is to give back. For Others Society is a group of Lower Mainland volunteers, all with different skills and assets, who, through a shared passion of hockey, understand the importance of community. For Cronier it’s also a way to bring the Richmond hockey community closer together—including providing some mentorship to younger players from both the Richmond and Seafair minor hockey associations. On Wednesday afternoon, despite a wicked snowstorm, Cronier and several current and former Richmond Sockeyes hosted a practice for several Peewee and Bantam A1 and A2 players featuring their favourite drills from their current teams. A short scrimmage followed. “The society was created to use Canada’s favourite sport to unite all associations in Richmond—with no boundaries of team, organization or skill level, juust an opportunity for Richmond individuals to unite on the basis of loving hockey. We’re looking to build on the success of this event and continue with many more in the future,” said Cronier, who hopes to soon be able to

organize a charity hockey game. Cronier said the presence of the current and former Sockeye alumni, including current Western Hockey League players Brayden Low and Carter Popoff, was particularly fortunate. He said the minor hockey players look up to them and many aspire to follow in their footsteps. Currently playing for the

Vancouver Giants, Popoff and his older brother Turner (who plays with the B.C. Hockey League Langley Rivermen) were particularly keen to participate. “They’re both real quality individuals who have great personalities and communicate well with the kids,” he said. “And they’re both good at school and sports, which makes them good role models.”

Synergy succeeding as one WINTER PROGRAMS December 27-29 & January 2-4

begin January 5-6 at the Richmond Olympic Oval!

Richmond’s U15 girls Metro soccer team at the top of the table Sports Editor Richmond Synergy heads into the holiday break having lost only one of their first 15 games and sitting comfortably in top spot in the U15 Division of the Metro Girls’ Select Soccer League— five points clear of the second-place team in the regular season. But coach Ron Ng insists they’ve always been more focused on performance than results. “We’ve had games where we’ve played poorly by our standards but still won. We’re not happy with that. We really believe that if we perform to the best of abilities the results will follow,” he says. Synergy is an ideal moniker for a team that truly demonstrates cooperative qualities, so much so that Ng—in his second season as head coach—is hesitant to single out any player as being a particular catalyst. “The truth of the matter is that each and everyone of them is a terrific representative of our team, our program and our city. I’m really proud of who they are and how they conduct themselves on and off the field.” Goalkeepers Nicola Houle and Carmen Milne have shared six clean sheets so far this season and have the league’s second-best goals against average (0.80). Synergy’s backline of Jessica Folk,

Emma James, Jessica Jones, Prabhleen Nagra and Jessica Zawada have been instrumental in both preventing scoring opportunities and initiating attacks. The team’s engine room, says Ng, has been the hardworking and talented midfield of Aria Druker, Karina Jesson, Justine McCaskill, Hannah Partridge and Ellie Reid who have been critical to team’s ability to both win and keep possession of the ball. And up front Natalie Cooke, Riley Elmes, Varsha Gill, Alex Heroux, Claire Reynolds and Claire Siqueira have provided a consistent and constant threat to score at all times. The players’ strong bond is further reflected in how they value hard work, which has helped them to overcome a myriad of challenges that every season presents. Ng says they appreciate how fortunate they are to be able to work with Richmond Girls’ Soccer Association staff coach Martin Bittengl (a former youth player and coach at FC Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Republic and holder of a Union of European Football Associations coaching licence) whose “refreshing and enthusiastic approach to the team’s training sessions,” coupled with high-performance training at the Richmond Olympic Oval and strength and conditioning sessions led by Fran Quintana, have sig-

nificantly increased the players’ confidence and abilities. “From a competitive standpoint we haven’t achieved anything yet. We would love to win the Metro Select League (to be decided in January), Coastal Cup (to be played in Richmond in April and May) and provincials (next summer),” Ng says. “But from a personal and development perspective, we’ve achieved a lot are continuing to learn more. We’ve learned to adapt and learn from new ideas and new approaches.” Ng is a disciple of possession-style soccer, believing that’s the most enjoyable way to play the game and best for

The first Christmas gift, Jesus, was later hung upon a tree.

individual development. But he says the style demands that players utilize their skills and intelligence and rely on one another to gain and hold possession. Playing to the team’s strengths, Synergy is particularly strong on the defensive side of the ball but Ng says that is greatly influenced by the emphasis on possession. “We think that if we have the ball it’s unlikely the other team will score on us,” he says. “And when we do lose possession everyone works hard to get the ball back. We usually have well over 50 per cent of the possession in our games and some times it feels like it’s 70 or 80 per cent.”

Gawdin, Dosanjh aspire to play in WHL From Page 20 A graduate of the Seafair Minor Hockey Association, Gawdin is playing his first year of Midget hockey this season. The six foot, 171 pound forward was a first-round pick of the Swift Current Broncos (fifth overall) in last spring’s Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. He made

his WHL debut earlier this season, playing two games for the Broncos. Also a Seafair grad, the six foot, 188-pound Dosanjh’s WHL rights are held by the Vancouver Giants who selected him in the 2011 Bantam Draft. This is Dosanjh’s second season playing for the Canadians.

Among notable graduates of the Major Midget League who played in the all-star game are Griffin Reinhardt of the Edmonton Oil Kings (Team Blue in 2010), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of the NHL Edmonton Oilers (Team White in 2009), Brett Connolly of the Tampa Bay Lightning (Team White in

2008) and Evander Kane of the Winnipeg Jets (Team White in 2007). The Major Midget league was established in 2004 to provide elite 15- to 17-year-olds the opportunity to play within their own age group and at a high level while developing their skills to play at the next level.

It wasn’t exactly what he was aiming for, but Richmond’s Sean Leger isn’t complaining after falling just shy of the $100,000 per year for life he was shooting for when he bought a lottery ticket earlier this month.

The Rotary Club of Richmond Sunset hosted its annual Christmas High Tea at Richmond City Hall on Dec. 15. It was well attended by more than 150 seniors. Mayor Malcolm Brodie played the piano while the seniors join in the sing-along. The Hugh Boyd Secondary School Band and Choir also performed. The Interact Clubs from Hugh Boyd and Steveston-London were busy serving the seniors with sandwiches, cakes and tea and coffee. Doris Newby, 99, came out to join in the fun with her daughters Joan Bradley and Edith Scambler. ABOVE: Doris Newby with Magdalen Leung, Michael Chiu and Dave Rogers.
