Richmond: The view from above Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield (above) is currently orbiting Earth aboard the International Space Station. He’s been taking pictures of the planet from space and posting them on his Twitter account (@Cmdr_Hadfield). On Monday, he took a photo of the Lower Mainland, including Richmond. ‘The first shot of Vancouver, BC, where the Fraser flows into the sea. A beautiful city,’ he tweeted on Monday. The International Space Station orbits the planet 15.7 times a day at an altitude between 330 km and 410 km above the Earth. Chris Hadfield photo

Police are continuing to investigate, and are asking anyone with information to call them at 604-278-1212. Though the incident happened a week ago, Richmond Mounties did not issue a press release about the incident, and The Review only found out about it after being alerted by a local reader.

Armed with a firearm, the men walked into the business, and proceeded to smash the display cases and took an undisclosed number of coins. Two shots were fired in the process, but nobody was injured, Turley said. The suspects fled in a vehicle, which was found the next day.

Richmond researcher discovers ‘truth’ behind JFK 50th anniversary of U.S. president’s assassination that continues to elicit debate by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

P

sychic researcher Walter Rae had already uncovered secrets surrounding some cold case files when he saw a photograph of John F. Kennedy being shot.

Matthew Hoekstra photo Walter Rae combed through nearly 20 volumes of research surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy to discover ‘the truth as I know it.’

Despite three bullets fired at the American president, top Secret Service agents in proximity hadn’t moved. “The lead people in the car haven’t even flinched. I looked at that and said, something’s wrong about this picture,” he said in an interview with The Richmond Review. Now, in 2013—the 50th anniversary of a murder that changed America and spawned endless debate and theories—Rae says he’s discovered the truth. The Richmond resident is the author of Inquest of Truth, an unpublished body of research resulting from a probe of 18 books, along with films and footage, on the subject. “Some people like doing sudoku, some people like going fishing,” said the 59-year-old. “I look at things and it makes me stop and wonder.” Rae, who runs tugs and pilot boats in local waterways, had a 32-year career as a port authority police constable, a job that included the grim task of pulling dead bodies from the water. Investigating circumstances surrounding the deaths, however, wasn’t part of the job. Now the passionate researcher can’t help but find answers to cold

cases he comes across. In the case of late president Kennedy, fatally shot Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas, Tex. while travelling in a presidential motorcade, an official investigation pointed the finger at Lee Harvey Oswald and concluded he acted alone. Investigators also found Jack Ruby acted alone when he murdered Oswald two days later. Rae was just nine years old and living in Vancouver when Kennedy was shot. “We all remember vividly the report on TV, and seeing our parents freak out,” he said of his generation. “We as Canadians were absolutely shocked out of our tree, because nothing in our childhood up to that point had happened like that.” What Rae found through his research was similar to some prominent theories—that the assassination was a well-planned event by government forces. But Rae brought a uniquely Canadian perspective to his research that avoided a simple discussion of other theories. Inquest of Truth, he said, offers new information on the shooting pattern that killed the president. He also discovered the close ties all those involved that fateful day had with Jack Ruby. What’s more, Rae believes Ruby, who died in custody three years after the assassination, set up much of the operation. Rae believes Oswald’s position that day made it impossible for him to fire the shots. And, he said, there had to be a reason for top Central Intelligence Agency agents to be on site that morning. Kennedy, said Rae, had made many enemies in the government and military, prompting the CIA to plan the assassination. Despite his findings, Rae doesn’t believe the official word on the assassination will change. But he hopes his research will nonetheless prompt others to take a second look and even write a new Canadian account. “There was such a need to bury the truth,” he said. “As a Canadian, this is the truth as I know it.”

Convicted rioter charged Plenty of space for region’s with breaching probation homeless despite ‘confusion’ by Jeff Nagel

Lawyer to argue Camille Cacnio had ‘lawful excuse’ to be out by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Convicted Stanley Cup rioter Camille Cacnio has been charged with breaching the terms of her probation order. The Richmond resident received a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to taking a pair of pants from the Black & Lee store in downtown Vancouver on June 15, 2011, the night of the riot following Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Canucks and Boston

Bruins. Cacnio’s lawyer, Jason Tarnow, said the entire day has been set aside for the trial, scheduled for March 15. Although Tarnow would not get into specifics, he said his client was just a few minutes past her curfew time, and that he will be arguing she had a “lawful excuse” to be outside of her home beyond the time of her curfew. Cacnio’s two-year suspended sentence was handed down on Sept. 7, 2012, and for the first 12 months of her suspended sentence, she’s barred from being outside her residence between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., except for medical emergencies or unless she has written permission from her probation officer. She was also required to perform 150 hours of community service.

Black Press There’s plenty of room in extreme weather shelters for the homeless across Metro Vancouver despite reports of some full shelters in Vancouver. Co-ordinator James Pratt sought to counter what he called “confusion” Monday about the different types of shelter available after City of Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson warned Vancouver’s four emergency winter shelters were full and had turned away hundreds of people since early December. The shelters in question there are seasonal winter shelters and are different from the additional extreme weather beds that are activated as needed in response to heavier demand in colder conditions. “There have been zero turnaways from extreme weather sites this season for any reason and plenty of space is available,” said Pratt, coordinator of the Metro Vancouver Extreme Weather Response Pro-

gram with the Greater Vancouver Shelter Strategy. The extreme beds opened again with the recent drop in temperatures and can be simply mats pulled out at existing shelters or additional space in churches or community centres. Pratt said they act as overflow for the year-round or winter seasonal shelters and typically aren’t open 24 hours. “That shows there’s a real need there,” he said. Metro Vancouver has a total of 1,600 shelter beds – 1,295 year-round ones plus 304 seasonal ones that run all winter and then up to 650 extra spaces that can be opened as extreme weather beds. As of Monday, Pratt said there were currently 17 extreme weather sites open across the region, with space for 410 people in them. He expected most of the extreme beds won’t be needed. “If we got close to filling those up we would have another 240 spaces to expand into.” Extreme beds are open in Richmond, the North Shore, New Westminster, Burnaby, Surrey, Langley and White Rock.

Limited seating. Please RSVP at lulu@ richmond.ca

With the participation of artists, can urban infrastructure designs be re-imagined to renew relationships between citizens and their environment? For example, what happens when you replace a street lamp with a theatre spotlight? The artist and architect duo, Sans façon (currently working on a city-wide program for the City of Calgary) explore these kinds of relationships between people and places through their site-specific projects. This talk will be preceded by a short performance by Aboriginal cellist Cris Derksen.

Students in Hugh Boyd Secondary’s Interact Club took first place in the 2013 Rotary International Video Competition last week, beating competitors from 11 countries representing five continents. Hugh Boyd’s Interact Club emerged victorious with their video submission Students Making a Difference, which highlighted five ways the Interact Club—sponsored by the Rotary Club of Richmond Sunset—has improved the world. Interact Clubs are service clubs filled with students motivated to make a difference in the world and reach out to their local and global communities through volunteer work. Hugh Boyd students proudly shared information in their winning video about the impact of events their club has put on, including collecting cans for the Richmond Food Bank, and sending 11 students to Africa this summer to partake in humanitarian work.

Doug Park photo Hugh Boyd’s Interact Club bested other students from 11 countries to win the 2013 Rotary International Video Competition with their entry “Students Making a Difference.”

The video was evaluated by a panel of international judges, who deemed it the cream of the crop. “We really wanted to emphasize the power of numbers,” says Interact Club co-president Shaane Nathu. “The more people you inspire, the greater the impact of the project you’re working on. We tried to show that although we are only kids, we do have an impact on this society and on the world.” He adds that one project the group was most proud of to

include in the video was “The Refilwe Project.” The Refilwe project sends several students— alongside Rotarian Magdalen Leung—every other year to Africa to help with humanitarian work at the Refilwe Orphanage, located south of Johannesburg, South Africa. “We’re able to help them on a much more personal level and really see where the money we fundraise is going,” Nathu says. “It’s an amazing experience.” See Page 7

Upgrades planned for Flight Path Park Airport welcoming feedback on ‘significant’ upgrades for 2013 by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A small Sea Island park popular with plane-spotters is slated for “significant” upgrades, according to the Vancouver Airport Authority. Flight Path Park, located along Russ Baker Way on the southern edge of Burkeville, will be subject of an open house on Saturday, Feb. 2. Airport officials will be collecting ideas to reshape the park—an open space featuring a playground, benches and picnic tables. The park is situated directly underneath the flight path of the South Runway. Upgrades are sched-

uled for this year. The park last received a facelift in the fall of 2011, when dozens of akebono cherry trees were planted around the park’s pedestrian entrances and central plaza. The open house takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Jade Canoe sculpture in the airport’s International Terminal. Comments are also being accepted at community_relations@ yvr.ca.

Students give back to the community From Page 4 Doug Park, Hugh Boyd’s video production teacher and incentive program co-ordinator, says the school’s incentive program has been giving back to the community for three decades, but only recently teamed up with Rotary to become an official Interact Club. “We’ve tried to instill the value of giving back to the community,” Park says. “Working with the Rotary Club has opened the doors to many more opportunities and amazing role models who share the same philosophy.” He adds: “Video is a powerful medium of expression, having the ability to document and share all the wonderful things the Interact students have been doing. Through social media, other students around the world will be inspired to follow in our footsteps, contributing to youth making the world a better place.” Hugh Boyd’s Interact Club is to receive a signed letter and engraved plaque from Rotary International president Sakuji Tanaka. Three runner-up prizes will also be awarded to Interact clubs in Egypt, Nepal, and Chilliwack. The winning video can be found at: tinyurl.com/ HughBoydInteract.

Fill on Finn Road farm raises questions by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Demolition materials being dumped on a Finn Road property has raised the ire of neighbours, and now city council has taken notice. On Monday council passed a motion asking the Agricultural Land Commission to suspend activity on the farm property, near No. 4 Road. City officials say the property’s owners have permission from the commission to dump concrete fill for purposes of building a farm road foundation. But in this case, city council’s agricultural advisory committee wasn’t consulted—despite the belief of some officials that it had. Now council wants the commission to halt the fill operation until the city and its

advisory committee can weigh in. Neighbours say dumping began around Christmas, and claim material beyond the permitted concrete is also being trucked in. One farmer, who wished to remain anonymous, said concrete pieces “the size of bathtubs” are being dumped. Bill Zylmans, co-chair of the agricultural advisory committee, has also heard some materials may exceed allowable size— something he said will destroy the land’s future in agricultural production. Even if the road is well-intentioned for serving a farm operation, rules need to be followed and better communication is needed. “Educate the community, educate the surrounding neighbourhood so we don’t have to have these concerns,” he said. Zylmans said dumping on agricultural

Editorial: No need for omnibus bills

I

f the federal Conservative government hasn’t already thought about its penchant for omnibus bills in Parliament, it needs to.

The Idle No More movement has focused some of its attention on changes to federal legislation like the Navigable Waters Protection Act and Environmental Assessment Act, which are rolled into an omnibus bill. These bills, often part of a budget, give MPs little chance to debate important issues because there are so many items jammed together. The Conservatives did not invent this strategy, but they have

honed it to a fine art. Omnibus bills began appearing regularly during the five years the Conservatives governed with a minority, and were often crafted in such a way as to keep at least one opposition party from voting against the government. While this was an understandable legislative strategy, the need for such omnibus bills does not exist when there is a majority government. But the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper likes the approach, because it limits the usefulness of Parliament and the ability of its critics to draw much public attention. That worked fine when the crit-

ics were solely from the opposition parties. But when they are from outside Parliament and are energized by a variety of causes, as is Idle No More, omnibus bills have the potential to do a great deal of harm. The harm comes from emasculating legitimate opposition in Parliament, where differences within a democracy need to be discussed. If too many people believe Parliament doesn’t work any more, and this leads them to do serious damage to Canada’s economy because of their frustrations, omnibus bills become very dangerous. The Conservative government

has nothing to fear from its opponents in Parliament. It has a majority, and it should be ready and willing to hear criticism of its plans within an elected assembly. The prime minister would serve the interests of all Canadians if he pledged to restrict or even eliminate omnibus bills for the remainder of this Parliament’s term. Idle No More may be a loose and disorganized movement, but it has the potential to serve as a force for either positive or negative change. The federal government needs to choose a path which is working towards positive change — on all types of issues. —Black Press

The Massey Tunnel—replace or conserve?

Digging Deep Jim Wright

H

ave you heard of the Massey Tunnel Conservation Project? I hope you will, but so far the project name says “Replacement.”

In Phase 1, “Understanding the Need,” the project team consulting the public did admit that keeping the current tunnel is an option, but quietly, and there was no keep-the-tunnel choice on the feedback form. As a stakeholder in Phase 2, “Exploring Options,” I’ll try to get conservation options studied along with replacement ones. For now, let’s see what’s already known. The project home page says “the existing tunnel has approximately 10 to 15 years of useful life remaining,” but details elsewhere show that the needs are just for stabilizing the ground and replacing operating systems. If it’s found that the “tube,” the tunnel structure, can remain sound, the rest is only renovation. The Massey structure, which opened in 1959, is an immersed tube. It was

The only evident reason for getting rid of the Massey Tunnel is to deepen the channel to allow larger freighters up the Fraser River.

prefabricated in concrete sections that were towed into position, sunk into a trench, joined and held in place. Much older immersed-tube tunnels are still going strong, including a 1928 one beneath an Oakland-area estuary and the 1930 Detroit–Windsor Tunnel beneath the Detroit River. The Massey Tunnel is most like the tunnel under the Maas River in Rotterdam that was completed 17 years earlier by the same Danish engineering firm. After renovation last year, it seems to be doing fine. Unlike some immersedtube tunnels that use round steel tube clad with concrete, the Maas and Massey tunnels used rectangular concrete tube. It

handles external pressure less efficiently, but that seems to have just meant a little more cost for the needed strength. The only evident reason for getting rid of the Massey Tunnel is to deepen the channel to allow larger freighters up the Fraser River. However, the Deltaport expansion at Roberts Bank is already providing more berths for them. After losing the Gilmore farm to Port Metro Vancouver, we can do without giant freighters that trigger even more port sprawl on Richmond farmland. Of course, the ongoing traffic clog where Steveston Highway meets Highway 99 near the tunnel needs to be cleared.

That simply requires the City of Richmond to fix the congestion it brought on. Massey Tunnel use has declined from its 2004 peak, but the “Exploring Options” phase of the project will still look at added capacity. To prepare, I’ve read the project’s online reports and the 1955 reports on bridge and tunnel options for the Fraser at Deas Island by a Vancouver engineering firm. (Both were feasible. The bridge was cheaper.) It strikes me that the towering approaches for a bridge would make it undesirable. In contrast, a new two-lane tube might be okay beside the existing tunnel. The new tube could

replace a pair of tunnel lanes at a time during renovation and could become a transit tube. A key factor for study is how close a new trench can be dug without destabilizing the tunnel. In any case, there’s potential for increased use of buses and high occupancy vehicles to reduce the tunnel traffic. Let’s start with that. For more on this, Google “The Massey Tunnel’s future” on Stephen Rees’s blog at stephenrees. wordpress.com. Richmond resident Rees is a transportation expert with everinsightful analysis.

Richmond Review reader is a real sweetie to newspaper delivery boys Editor: My son, Alexander was a paper carrier for the venerable Richmond Review for three years relinquishing his duties to his 11-year-old twin brothers, Nathaniel and Nicholas in September 2012 when he went on to bigger and better things at university. The twins currently have three routes, a responsibility of more than 100 papers delivered twice a week every week, and, if the mathematical part of my brain is correct, that’s 104 deliveries each year through all kinds of weather

including torrential rains, heavy winds, and heavy winds and torrential rains at the same time and even hail. And, let me tell you, hail hurts when it falls on you! But, really who cares all that much about a free local newspaper and whether or not it gets delivered other than of course the newspaper itself, the businesses that have flyers therein, and the paper carriers who are conscientious? Well, I’d like to say that I know of at least one person who does:she's a sweet little old lady (and I do hope she doesn't mind my

referring to her as such) who lives on Bakerview Drive. Every year she has given my boy(s) a little something at the end of the year as a “thank you” for always putting her Review in her black mailbox and raising the red flag so that she knows she has a delivery just by looking out her window. A very nice gesture, in my most humble of opinions. On behalf of my boys, I’d like to recognize her thoughtfulness:- Thank you! You really are a sweetie! Barbara Vaz Richmond

Sharing our space with nature Editor: Re: “Snow geese ravage school field in a day,” Dec. 24. Yes, some consider this migration of snow geese a nuisance but others consider it a wonderful event of nature. What happened at Quilchena Elementary School is a result of a very large school playground located near the west dike. The schoolyards are unusable at this time of year as the ground is just too soggy.

Before we paved over Terra Nova and most of the land along the west side of Richmond, the snow geese were not an issue as there were sufficient fields of grass for them to graze on. Now that we have expanded the city, the grasslands are no longer accessible and the biggest areas of grassland remaining are the schoolyards. The grass will grow back as it always does and some areas it may have to be re-seeded.

The next five-week education series begins in February, followed in May by a course for Mandarin-speaking caregivers

Denying the snow geese momentary access to the grass, just does not sit right with some of us. We should share this space with nature since we have denied access to their rightful portion along their flight path that existed before we paved it over. Also, Minoru Park gets damaged by seagulls and ducks, without the presence of snow geese. Don and Maggie Flintoff Richmond

B.C. movie business is feeling the squeeze B.C. falls behind Ontario in attracting big film productions by Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. government is working on ways to hold onto movie, TV and video game production, as Hollywood shifts work to other provinces and countries that give attract them with generous subsidies and tax breaks. But that won’t involve matching generous tax credits offered by Ontario and Quebec, said Bill Bennett, B.C.’s minister of community, sport and cultural development. “I understand why the film and TV and digi-

tal media industries are concerned,” Bennett said in an interview Monday. “What the film industry seems to want mainly is for us to match the tax credits that are available in Ontario, and we can’t do that.” Bennett said he is working on a new policy that will “clean up and simplify” the business environment for the industry, which is looking at further costs as B.C. prepares to phase out the harmonized sales tax in March. Movie industry insiders say most of B.C.’s movie crews are out of work as 2013 begins. One of those is Lee Cleary, assistant director on such B.C.-made movies as The Hurt Locker, Fantastic 4 and the first X-Men movies. “The last project that I worked on in B.C. was in 2009, on The ‘A’ Team,” Cleary said from his home in Vancouver, where he has lived for 10 years. “Since then the blockbuster films have not been coming here.” In 2009, Ontario stepped up its tax credit for

film and TV production to 25 per cent of all spending by foreign companies in the province. Since then, Ontario has passed B.C. as the third largest entertainment production centre in North America, after California and New York. B.C. gives the industry a 33-per-cent refundable tax credit on labour spending only. Quebec has also stepped up its incentives, resulting in 20th Century Fox moving later movies in the X-Men series to Montreal. Bennett said the B.C. government provided $1.2 million last year to BC Film + Media, a non-profit society that offers financing, marketing and skills development. Another $947,000 went to the B.C. Film Commission, a provincial government office that helps producers secure permits, crews and shooting locations around the province. Another $235,000 was provided to regional film commissions last year.

“The blockbuster films have not been coming here.” – Lee Cleary

Cleary said the rise of computer image techniques reduce the appeal of B.C. scenery to filmmakers. B.C.’s spectacular mountains can be added to a scene “with a brushstroke,” and Hollywood studios are shopping the world for the best deal, he said. B.C. still has a reputation for quality crews, beautiful locations and easy access to Los Angeles, but those things alone aren’t keeping big studio projects coming. Cleary said B.C. residents are still finding work, but leaving the province to get it.

Hair, cash donated at Wigs for Kids fundraiser Hennessey Hair Salon at Richmond Centre played host to the third annual Hennessey Hair “Do� fundraiser, benefiting Wigs for Kids B.C. Sunday. Twenty Hennessey hair stylists donated their time to cut and style hair by donation—while some patrons donated their long hair. Among those donating their locks was Stephanie Dodge, whose half-metre (20-inch) -long hair will be used to provide human-hair wigs to children with hair loss, due to cancer treatment or other serious illnesses. Money raised at the event will help cover the cost of essential drugs and feeding supplies that are not covered by any agency or program. Bev Friesen founded Wigs for Kids B.C. when she learned human hair wigs cost up to $3,000 and no organizations existed to help cover the cost. She said at any given time there are over 1,000 children undergoing cancer treatment at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Most patients lose their hair temporarily, some permanently. “Having a proper-fitting wig that looks and feels like the real thing is important to the child’s recovery,� said Friesen. “Some children are so upset when they lose their hair, they refuse to return to school. Some even refuse to leave the house. Jeff Weddell photo “Having a human hair wig means that when the child is Stephanie Dodge poses with her new hair style afable to resume their normal activities, their baldness is one ter stylist Maria Karimani cut her hair at the Wigs for question they don’t have to answer.� Kids event.

ake a page out of Kermit’s book and go green for your New Year’s fashion resolution. Emerald was selected as Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2013. A global leader in manufacturing colours, Pantone sets the standards for the design industry. A shade is chosen for Colour of the Year after observing trends in fashion, art and interior design. Emerald made a splash at a number of recent spring collections. Burberry fashioned one of its illustrious trench coats using a lace version of the green hue. Stella McCartney sent a few of her models down the runway in sporty, oversized emerald outfits. And though the colour spectrum was fully embraced at the shows of Vera Wang and Akris, it was the emerald pieces that really stood out. The luxe shade was even included in a few of the pre-fall collections that were just revealed, such as at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Gucci and Oscar de la Renta. A vividly lush green, emerald represents renewal and growth — perfect for a fresh start to the year. Compared to previous Colour of the Year winners such as tangerine tango, a bright red-orange, and honeysuckle, a cheerful reddish pink, emerald is more versatile and easier to incorporate into daily ensembles. Emerald green is known as a universal colour, meaning it’s flattering towards all hair colours and skin tones. So break out those pieces usually reserved for St. Patrick’s Day and work them into your

wardrobe rotation. Depending on your love for the colour, emerald can be worn as an accent piece or layered with other green tones, such as the ever popular mint, for a bold trendy look. When it gets warmer, try an emerald skirt with a pale mint blouse for a cool outfit that screams springtime. To prevent going overboard with green layers and looking like a leprechaun,

find printed or patterned pieces with green shades in them. It’ll help tie the look together without being a green overkill. Jewel-tones such as emerald, ruby or sapphire, are always great options for evening outfits if you want to veer from the traditional black. To bring out the vibrancy, go for fabrics with sheen like silks, satins and velvets — emeralds will look

way to wear emerald is on the nails. One of my favourite polishes is China Glaze’s Emerald Sparkle, a deep green jelly with glitter. For the daring, try emerald liner or eye shadow. Green eye makeup was used on the models at Michael Kors, Stella McCartney and Derek

Lam this season. The colour provides a modern balance to peach or pink cheeks and lips. Use a cream or gel liner for a more intense look and pencil for a softer one. Daytime or evening, there are a variety of fun ways to include the colour

more luminous. Just think of Keira Knightley’s slinky emerald silk dress in Atonement or Viola Davis’ green Vera Wang number at last year’s Oscars. For even more flash, opt for an emerald sequined piece. Emerald will also go wonderfully with

the neutrals that will be trendy for spring (black and white, in particularly, were huge on the runways). Michael Kors mixed black and green together in rugby striped tops and geometric dresses for a polished elegance. To make a bolder statement

pair emerald pieces with bright, complementary colours such as cobalt or a deep purple. If adding emerald clothing to your style is too extreme, ease into the trend with accessories. Emerald is a great colour for bags and shoes, since green is a standard

colour for croc or snakeskin accessories and easy to find in stores. Plus the shade stands out even more against gold or silver hardware. Emerald costume jewelry is also a classic and nice to have for cocktail parties or dinners. Another simple

Then there’s The 17 Day Diet Cookbook by Dr. Mike Moreno, which is structured around four 17-day cycles with special diets for each cycle. The recipes look good, but there are no calorie counts and when he suggests “plenty” of roast turkey breast does that mean six ounces or a pound and a half? Call me crazy, but when I see recommended ingredients like “non-stick cooking spray”, “chocolate-flavored syrup” and “Nestle’s Quik sugar-free hot cocoa mix”, I think chemicals, not health.

Children’s Arts Festival returns on Feb. 11

B

.C.’s first Family Day is Monday, February 11 and what better way to celebrate than plunging into the artistic pool with your kids at the fifth annual Richmond Children’s Arts Festival.

The festival offers top-quality, highly interactive artistic activities led by professional artists. It will be held at the Richmond Cultural Centre on February 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., following an opening ceremony at 9:45 a.m. “This festival is especially designed to inspire children’s artistic voice, and to encourage our younger generations to try new things and take risks,” Mayor Malcolm Brodie said in a press release. “By giving children an opportunity to interact with accomplished artists and stretch their own artistic boundaries, we contribute to making them well-rounded members of our community.” One of this year’s highlights includes a presentation and book signing by bestselling author Eric Litwin. He will be sharing his book Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes and other musical stories. Fans are encouraged to bring their books or stuffed animals for signing. Tickets for Eric Litwin are $10, and children’s tickets (two years and older) include an Imagination Station wristband. The Children’s Arts Festival prides itself in being highly interactive for both children and adults. A variety of ninety-minute Creativity Classes are taught by accomplished artists in the realm of dance, circus, musical theatre, cartooning, animation (10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with parent), clay, painting, and even puppet making. Admission to these classes is only $10 per class (excludes animation $30), and registration also includes an Imagination Station wristband. Classes typically sell out in advance, and registration is required by visiting www.richmond.ca/register or by calling 604-276-4300. Families are also encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to fill the Arts Truck parked in the plaza, with proceeds to the Richmond Food Bank. For those wishing to enjoy the Children’s Arts Festival without registering for a Creativity Class, a $5 wristband will provide drop-in access to all of the performances and Imagination Stations including balloon twisting, face painting, origami, and more. The wristband also includes admission to Minoru Aquatic Centre and Minoru Arenas on Family Day, so remember to pack swimsuits and skates for your family. The festival is open to the public for just one day and Family Day has given the festival the opportunity to be bigger and better than previous years. The Cultural Centre’s outdoor plaza will be populated with family-friendly food trucks, such as DougieDog (as seen on the CBC show, Dragons’ Den), Mom’s Grilled Cheese, and a waffles vendor. The festival is actually five days long, with four sold out days open only to school groups. Last year, over 1,200 children took part in 81 events and activities over three sold out school days plus two public days. The fifth annual Children’s Arts Festival is presented by the City of Richmond and BC Children’s Art and Literacy Centre. For more information about the Children’s Arts Festival, to read more about Eric Litwin, and to view a list of artist instructors, visit www.childrensartsfestival.ca.

NDP leader marks rebirth of Richmond firm Unusual political guest joined Catalyst Paper in Toronto for ceremonial event by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter B.C.

Chaos end season a perfect 14-0 In Division 3 of the Metro Women’s Soccer League, the division leading Richmond Chaos played the third place Wildebeests from Tsawwassen for the first game in 2013 but the last regular season game for the Chaos. Cup play for both teams starts at the end January. Chaos led from the about the 15 minute mark of the first half when striker Kelsey Lawrence scored. As she has been doing all season centre mid Jenny Lyons, set Lawrence free on a thread the needle lead pass. Lawrence made no mistake burying the ball in the back of the net. Chaos felt okay just like before the winter break more goals were to come but time after time, the Wildebeest keeper stopped the Chaos attack. Lawrence again, Lyons, as well as strikers Natalie Sczerkowsky and Taylor Bakken all came up blank. Chaos keeper Julia Badock had her hands full as the tough Tsawwassen team got some quality shots away at her to end the first half and continued to pour it on in the latter part of the second half. Badock was able to make the single goal stand up as the final score Chaos 1 – Wildebeests 0. This game ends regular season play and the Chaos ended the season with a perfect 14 – 0 record. Keeper Badock credited the strong Chaos defence that bent but did not break for her clean sheet. Lydia Pengilley, Victoria Groff, Alexis Ford, Jen Forsberg and Sarah Little played in the four defence spots during the contest. Mids for the team beside Lyons included Ana and Dani Pacheco with Erin Lee, Kirstin Sullivan and Janessa Murao. The Chaos now do not play until Jan. 27 when they host the Delta United B in the first contest in a round robin Cup play at 5 pm on Boyd field. Coach Al Groff reported to have said how proud he was of this second year team. He hopes the Chaos is ready for Cup play.

Poll finds many hockey fans will tune out, punish NHL Many of the disgruntled not ready to forgive

And 48 per cent are planning to watch less, while 64 per cent say they will go to fewer games during the remainder of the shortened season. Another 44 per cent said they’ll buy less merchandise. “People are mad and they’re mad now,” said Insights West president Steve Mossop. But he cautioned it’s harder to predict how much of the anger will dissipate in a few months as excitement builds into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Fan hostility played out on Twitter, social media and other commentary through the lockout, he noted. “The sentiment is even more negative than we initially thought to be

the case. I think the NHL may have underestimated the amount of fan disgruntlement.” Those who consider themselves fanatical or huge hockey followers has dropped from 25 per cent to 12 per cent, according to the survey of more than 600 B.C. adults. The number who say they’re not much of a fan or not a fan at all has nearly tripled from 14 per cent to 42 per cent. Mossop noted any lingering hostility may have implications for hockeydependent businesses like pubs and perhaps even NHL-related charities. For more on this and other polls see www.insightswest.com.

business Dix promises impressive campaign Learn about tax efficient investing From Page 16 “Starting the trading day is a great way to mark the fresh start that we’ve collectively secured.” The Liberal government of Premier Christy Clark, who reportedly declined an invitation to Tuesday’s ceremonial event, was slow to act on the Catalyst file, said Dix. “We were concerned about the way the government handled it, and put pressure on them to change, but today’s

a positive day,” said Dix, noting Catalyst directly employs 1,700 people and thousands of others indirectly. Dix’s appearance comes four months ahead of the next B.C. election, scheduled for May 14. His party has yet to announce a single candidate for Richmond’s three ridings, including Richmond Centre, where Catalyst is headquartered. Without naming names,

planning. “This seminar is strictly for community education and information, and provides a safe, non-sales environment in which people can learn valuable financial skills,” said Shelley Civkin, library communications officer. “Tax Efficient Investing” takes place on Jan. 23 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Brighouse branch in the second floor learning place. The library is located at 7700 Minoru Gate, Richmond. To register visit any branch of Richmond Public Library, call 604-231-6412 or register online at www. yourlibrary.ca/whatson.cfm. Quote program #125.

Financial educator Heidi Pullem will discuss “Tax Efficient Investing” at the Brighouse branch of Richmond Public Library. Pullem, an associate with ZLC Financial Group, says “It’s no secret that investments grow faster when you defer or reduce tax on their earnings. Learn more about professionally managed, diversified portfolios that defer or reduce tax on interest, dividends and capital gains. Learn how you can rebalance and create income without triggering immediate tax.” Pullem is a certified financial planner with expertise in investments, taxes, insurance, and retirement and estate

Dix said the people lining up to run in Richmond are “outstanding,” “I’m looking forward to the campaign, I think this is going to be the most impressive campaign we’ve ever run in Richmond.” Current Richmond Centre MLA, Liberal Rob Howard, isn’t seeking re-election. So far local school trustee Grace Tsang is the only approved candidate for the Liberal nomination.

“SALT AND PEPPER”, ID# 288216 AND #288217, FEMALE, DWARF HAMSTER CROSS, 5 MONTHS 1 WEEK (APPROX) Salt and Pepper were surrendered to the BC SPCA because their mother was pregnant when purchased at a pet store, and later gave birth. The owner could not care for all the babies, so now we are trying to re-home them to new families! Salt is the more outgoing of the two, and will come right up to you to see what you are doing. Always approach with a treat, so that they do not mistake your fingers for a carrot! Dwarf hamsters are social creatures and can be housed in pairs of the same sex, provided that they were raised together at birth. Staff have determined that they are both female, however they haven’t lived in the same habitat, and therefore we do not know how well they would interact at this point; thus they are housed separately.
