Martin van den Hemel photo Four men were gunned down around 9 p.m. Wednesday during a birthday party celebration and union celebration for new members of the International Longshore & Warehouse Union at the Riverside Banquet Hall, at 14500 River Rd., a half kilometre east of No. 6 Road.

Gunfire erupts at union birthday party Four men shot by lone gunman in targeted attack, police say by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Four men were shot Wednesday night when a lone gunman opened fire at a function held by members of the International Longshore & Warehouse Union at the Riverside Banquet Hall. Union president Mark Gordienko said the private function was jointly organized by union members and non-members, partly as a birthday party, and partly to celebrate 10 newlyannointed members of the union from a Vancouver union meeting that ended around the same time as the shooting. Neither Gordienko nor any of his union executive were at the function, as they were still wrapping up their meeting. He said one of the victims wasn’t a union member, but three others were casual workers who worked out the union’s dispatch hall. See Page 4

Matthew Hoekstra photo At city hall Thursday morning, Ray Galawan protests the dumping of broken pavement on a Finn Road farm.

Farmers take protest to city hall Protestors blockade farm with tractors, then drive them to city hall by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Farmers and neighbours upset over asphalt dumping on a Finn Road farm property took their frustration to city hall Thursday—with their tractors. Protesters drove two tractors—one towing a trailer carrying broken pavement and rebar—up No. 3 Road and

parked on city hall grounds following a day-long blockade of the farm. “Will this grow food? Absolutely not,” said protest leader Ray Galawan, holding up a piece of asphalt. “The oil out of here will be leach into the soil and that’s the end of our Class 1 farmland.” The group is urging lawmakers to help stop the dumping of asphalt and other demolition materials on the farm, at 9360 Finn Rd., and remove what’s already been trucked in. Trucks began dumping material on the former pumpkin farm late December. The farm’s new leaseholders are using it to build an access road for a new farm

operation—potentially a tree nursery. Neighbours have been watching loads come in, and Galawan, a retired farmer, said he had to do something after watching a load of “highly toxic” asphalt dumped on fertile soil. So on Wednesday he and farmer Bob Featherstone blocked the property’s driveway with tractors while neighbours hoisted signs that read “Food not fill” and “Save our soil.” “Enough’s enough,” said Galawan. “Nobody else is stopping it. I’ve tried every avenue I can think of. We’re getting no help, no answers, so I thought we have to do this to stop it ourselves.” See Page 4

Martin van den Hemel photos Ryan Loriault at the Richmond Olympic Oval, where he’s lost more than 100 pounds. He now weighs 175 pounds, after tipping the scales at 386 pounds 30 months ago.

Richmond man’s amazing transformation Ryan Loriault, 30, has shed more than 200 pounds in 30 months by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

T

o say that Ryan Loriault is a shadow of his former self wouldn’t be entirely accurate.

Once tipping the scales at more than 386 pounds, he’s now a svelte 175 pounds, technically not quite weightless. He pulled off the majority of his stunning transformation at the Richmond Olympic Oval, where for more than a year, he has been pumping iron and sweating his way towards better health. “I have been told so many kind things, everything from you’re an inspiration to you’re my hero,” Loriault told The Richmond Review. “Things like that motivate me and make me work that much harder.” Today, Loriault no longer resembles the man of two years ago, or for that matter, the man of eight months ago, when he started working at the oval’s coffee shop and weighed more than 240 pounds. So what was the catalyst that triggered his stunning transformation?

A brush with death? A family intervention? No, the all-smiles and affable Loriault said humbly. It was a walk. At the urging of his mother-in-law, the

Kins launches Green Fighters Challenge, p. 22 then obese Loriault was battling migraine headaches while living in Edmonton. She suggested he go for a walk. Meanwhile, one healthcare professional prescribed electroshock therapy. Loriault opted for the former, and after a five minute stroll, he found himself in tremendous pain. His back ached and he was exhausted. But there was an oh-sosubtle improvement to his headaches. And so a five-minute walk became 10, then 20, and soon he could walk far enough to reach the neighbourhood swimming pool. Then, after moving to Richmond, he joined the Richmond Olympic Oval about a year ago, weighing more than 300 pounds. So staff and coworkers there have witnessed his metamorphosis, an uplifting story featured

and it was awesome. I did things I never ever thought possible and I still do.” Loriault said part of his secret has been eating more often. Instead of three meals a day, he eats six times, but every meal is calorielimited. The frequency of eating helps him control his appetite. The 30-year-old is also religious about going to the gym. “I currently am working on staying in shape and building muscle so I go to the gym about two hours a day and work in the coffee shop,” he said. Loriault chronicled his journey by assembling pictures for a YouTube video (tinyurl.com/ RyanWeightLoss) which week by week, and month by month, shows how his body shrank and his confidence grew. “As I lost more and more weight, I learned

more and more and kept changing my workouts. I would spend four hours at the gym a day and when I started to work at the coffee shop, I was spending eight hours a day there...I pretty much lived and still do live at the oval.” Now, he’s hoping to inspire others with the message that change begins with just a single step. “Obesity is a big problem in Canada and the U.S. and I feel people need to see more people who were able to fight back and show them that if that is their goal, they can reach it. Even if they have health issues, even if they are in constant pain, even if they are poor.” No pricey personal trainers, no gimmicks, no expensive diets. Just a whole lot of sweat. •See Ryan Loriault’s blog at ryansonebelt. tumblr.com.

Council wants farm fill operation to be put on hold From Page 4 Some neighbours have also complained about concrete “the size of bathtubs” being dumped on the site. Harold Steves met with the dozen protestors to

express their support, and committed to working with the Agricultural Land Commission to find a resolution to the issue and future fill projects. City of Richmond spokesperson Ted

Townsend met with protestors and said city council’s motion Monday appears to have been a success. “Council’s already passed a motion requesting the (land com-

Council Update Social Development Strategy will help create equitable community By Chak Au On Monday, January 14, Council adopted a 10-year Social Development Strategy for Richmond. It Chak Au Councillor represents an important step taken by the City to address the changing needs for social development in our community, as the Strategy is intended to guide the City’s decisions and resource allocations on social development from 2012-2022. It also fulfils one of Council’s term goals for 2011-2014. The preparation of the Strategy started in 2009 and extensive consultations with Richmond residents, community partners and other key stakeholders were conducted. Through this process, five issue areas are considered to be of prime concern for the future. They are: Cultural Diversity, Aging of the Population, Adequate Social Capital and Infrastructure, Supporting Children, Youth and Families, and Affordable Housing and Affordable Living. Some of these issues, such as aging of the population, are not unique to Richmond, nonetheless we are challenged by having one of the highest concentrations of visible minorities and nonEnglish speaking immigrants. It is for this reason that citizen engagement, social equity, and inclusion are crucial for successful social development. Another factor that makes the development of the Strategy

necessary is the continued downloading of responsibilities from senior governments. Since the early 1990s, the Federal Government has continuously withdrawn from its national leadership role in addressing social issues. The cutback of funding for social housing is a good example. Likewise, the provincial government has also eliminated many social programs and funding for community agencies. Under such circumstances, it becomes necessary for the City to clarify its roles and identity its limits in addressing particular social development issues. It is obvious that the City cannot address all social development needs in Richmond by itself. In 2012, 50 per cent of property taxes were allocated for direct City purposes, with the remainder allocated to other institutions including Translink, Metro Vancouver, and the provincial government for school taxes. Therefore, collaboration, partnership and coordination with senior governments, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, community groups, businesses, and private corporations are central to the Social Development Strategy of the City. While the draft Strategy has been adopted by Council, there is still another round of public consultation this spring and summer. The public is invited to provide comments and feedback on the Strategy. Watch for details in local newspapers or look on line at www.richmond.ca

mission) to suspend the fill operation and we believe that’s happened. The next step is we’ll continue to have discussions with the (commission) as to how we can better manage these fill applications going forward.” Council has requested the fill operation be put on hold until the city and its agricultural advisory committee have a chance to review the file. Thomas Loo, a compliance and enforcement officer with the Agricultural Land Commission, visited the farm this week and said he didn’t see anything that would be in contravention of the Agricultural Land Commission Act. He said the act doesn’t prohibit the use of recycled concrete or asphalt for farm road construction. “We’ve seen it used in the cranberry industry as part of their berm/road system,” he said. “The is-

“What we’re doing is totally legal according to the Agricultural Land Commission who monitors the site routinely.” – Bill Jones sue seems to be related to the size of it, which we’ll be working with the landowner and agent to have it processed on site to more reasonable sizes for road construction.” Large concrete pieces will serve as the road’s lower base, and allow for easier removal if the land use is changed, Loo said. Proponents have been asked to remove rebar from the land, and have suggested a sorting area be created to remove any inappropriate materials trucked in, he added. One of the farm’s leaseholders is Bill Jones, the longtime operator of

a former nursery on Westminster Highway. He called the protest against his project “pretty vicious.” “What this is all about is some rather vicious people trying to make a point, because it’s frankly a case of sour grapes,” said Jones, declining to elaborate. Jones said he has approval from the Agricultural Land Commission for the road project. “What we’re doing is totally legal according to the Agricultural Land Commission who monitors the site routinely,” he said. “Any farmer, any farmer, such as cranberry

farmers, for instance, are entitled to build access roads without permission from anyone. The materials we use can be any number of things.” Harold Steves said since the provincial government has “gutted” the Agricultural Land Commission, more and more “unchecked” dumping is happening on Richmond farms. Steves suggested on farms with Class 1 soil, which he said is found south of Steveston Highway, new road beds shouldn’t be permitted unless they can easily be removed. “The whole fill issue in Richmond is out of control,” he said. “We can’t change provincial law, but certainly I think there should be a major decision on road beds, that there should be no fill like blacktop and concrete, that cannot be easily removed.”

to a report of shots fired around 9 p.m. at the hall, at 14500 River Rd., about a half kilometre east of No. 6 Road, at River Road. Investigators believe the shooting was targeted, and on Thursday, confirmed they have one suspect in custody. It was chaos inside the hall when the shots rang out, with four people hurt, at least one with what was initially described as life-threatening injuries. The men suffered gunshot wounds and were taken to area hospitals, where protocols were enacted to ensure they are safe, as well as others in the hospital. It’s believed about 150 people attended the event. A transit bus was used to shuttle the large number of witnesses to the Richmond detachment to be interviewed. “There is no information to suggest...this is related to events that have occurred in the Lower Mainland over the last week,” Massie said, in reference to four other fatal shootings that police have said involved criminal activity. This isn’t the first time the banquet hall has been the scene of violence. Gangster Kelly Buttar was shot and killed at the banquet hall during a wedding reception more than a decade ago.

Chinese herbal medicine community frustrated by costly thefts

CLEAR-OUT OF THE WEEK:

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A rash of costly afterhour break-ins at Chinese herbal medicine stores has left business owners frustrated and demanding action from police and city officials. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, Coun. Chak Au, Richmond RCMP Sgt. Cam Kowalski, and some 30 to 40 Chinese medicine business owners met over dinner last week to discuss the concerns about the targeted thefts of bird nests, dried abalone, Korean ginseng and sea cucumber, among other things. Each break-in has cost the businesses between $30,000 and $130,000, and investigators said it’s apparent that the thieves know what they are looking for, and are targeting high-value items, wasting no time in breaking into the store and then exiting in a matter of minutes. “The price of some products are more expensive than gold per ounce,” Kowalski noted. “Clearly, it’s people with knowledge of these herbs and various dried products.” Nine break-ins and thefts occurred between July 1 and Nov. 14 of last year, Kowalski told The Richmond Review. The majority were break-ins, though others involved

unwanted pharmaceuticals at pharmacies. It’s seen the volume of returned drugs double over the past four years to 36,000 kilograms last year. “Please don’t flush your medications down the toilet or throw them in the trash,” added Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who chairs Metro Vancouver’s zero waste committee.

thefts in which the store owners were intentionally distracted by the perpetrators while the thefts took place. A collaborative working group has been formed, including the Richmond Chinese business community, local Mounties and the city. Proactive and reactive measures are being enacted to deal with the thefts, which Kowalski suspects isn’t unique to Richmond. Investigators will be reaching out to surrounding communities to find out if similar thefts have been happening elsewhere. Among the tactics intended to deter thefts and break-ins are store hardening measures, which includes strategies dealing with the placement and visibility of pricey herbs and the presence of surveillance cameras and what images they capture. Mounties have instituted directed patrols around the types of businesses that have been

targeted, including foot patrols, and police have helped heighten awareness and developed a “comprehensive working relationship with them over the past two months,” Kowalski said. While there are Chinese herbal stores in malls such as Lansdowne Centre, the bandits have been focusing on those situated in strip malls. Police do have video surveillance footage, which is still being analyzed to see if police can identify the perpetrators. Multiple people are involved, and in several instances, the bandits have covered their faces. “We are certainly taking it seriously,” Kowalski said. Although investigators are only aware of local thefts, Kowalski said these incident have a greater impact, as the stolen merchandise is being sold to businesses elsewhere in the Lower Mainland. “It’s quite a progressive approach we’re taking.” Au said since the meet-

ings with police, the concerned merchants feel much better about the improved dialogue. Since the middle of November, Au said at least another four or five merchants have been targeted. What brought this issue to a head was an incident in November, when, according to Au, a merchant called police about an 8 a.m. break-in, but police didn’t arrive for 20 minutes. Afterward, a police spokesperson told the merchants the response time was reasonable. While the Chineselanguage media have been covering this story with big headlines for months, that hasn’t been the case elsewhere. Au said that’s a sign that this community is still divided, where one sector doesn’t know what’s going on in the other. That’s a very real and disconcerting disconnect that’s certainly “less than ideal,” Au said.

GUEST SPEAKERS

Spul’u’kwuks elementary Grade 4 student Taylor Markel (front) rallied her fellow students and school teachers and staff—teacher Renata Hyrman, Nailah Crowe, Zara Shoker and Sophia Anderson—to participate in a bake sale fundraiser for the students of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, the scene of a tragic shooting that claimed the lives of 20 students and six teachers late last year. Touched by the senseless tragedy, Markel sought to raise funds to send to the students to be used to bring some much-needed laughter and joy back into the school, perhaps for a magician entertainer. Said Hyrman: “Such is our community that it teaches our children to enjoy their childhoods and share their good fortune with those that have lost theirs.” Martin van den Hemel photo

Join us for the City of Richmond’s annual series of talks about art in the city and its importance to creating connections between citizens and their communities.

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.

Teresa Wat to run for Liberals Teresa Wat has been appointed the B.C. Liberal candidate in Richmond Centre. Wat is president and CEO of Mainstream Broadcasting Corporation (CHMB AM1320). “I believe the upcoming election is too important to stand on the sidelines,” Wat said in a press release. “I want to be a part of the team that secures a strong economic future for British Columbians that will last for decades.” Wat was former news director at Channel M Television, now OMNI. In 2010 she was appointed to the Canadian Women Voters Congress Advisory Board. “I am very excited to have Teresa join our team,” said Premier Christy Clark. “She will be a champion for Richmond Centre and B.C.’s growing multicultural communities.” Richmond school trustee Grace Tsang was the only declared candidate to date, but the party says she has decided not to pursue the nomination. Tsang has accepted an appoint-

EDITORIAL: Pipeline plan a non-starter

M

ost property owners will have received their property assessments in the mail.

For many, this important piece of information is quickly glanced at and discarded into the junk mail pile – it is accepted simply for what it is. But with that number comes a wealth of information on how a property is valued, far more

than just how much you will be expected to pay in July when taxes are due. The arrival of assessments is only a small piece of a much larger picture that triggers a complex system of property tax calculations, and how the money collected by the city is used to pay for roads, sewers, recreation facilities, social programs and other services. Part of the property tax each property

owner pays also funds the local school district, hospital, library and other services. As assessments arrive, local politicians are already working to determine how the city will spend the money received from property tax. How much your largest asset is worth and how the tax money it generates is used to keep public services working are two subjects

worth knowing a little bit about. After all, would you invest $3,000 or so annually in a stock without doing some research? Hopefully not. However, if you’d prefer to swallow the blue pill instead of the red pill, there are still many interesting features available on the B.C. Assessment website at www.bcassessment.ca. —Black Press

A

study of six northern Alberta lakes conducted by Environment Canada and other scientists was published last week, generating headlines around the world.

“Oil sands toxins ‘accumulate in freshwater systems,’” the BBC announced. The headline in The New York Times declared: “Oil sands industry in Canada tied to higher carcinogen level.” The study was reported

with similar alarm across Canada. It looked at levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in lakebed sediment, and found levels measurably higher than natural sources since oil sands extraction began 50 years ago. Most news reports I saw made little or no effort to put this information into context, in terms of the actual risk to humans, fish and other organisms. Some quoted people they knew would scream bloody murder, because as we in the media are taught, conflict and fear attract an audience. As expected, U.S. environmental groups and their Canadian branch offices ramped up the rhetoric to battle their favourite villain. At least one major Canadian newspaper, The Globe and Mail, did a responsible job. Its report on the study stated “PAH pollution level remains low – on par, at worst, with an urban lake –

but is rising.” In fact, five of six lakes tested were far below average contamination of urban lakes. PAH fallout is a daily constant of urban life, from vehicles, industry, and particularly where coal is burned for electricity. To be clear, there are dozens of different forms of PAH. Some have been shown to increase cancer risk, and some have been linked to (but not proven to cause) infertility, immune disorders and fish mutations. So when you drive your kids to school, stand at the bus stop, or drink a glass of water from Coquitlam Lake or any urban reservoir, you are exposed to PAH pollution from human and natural sources. The risk from this is an ongoing focus of research, but this study confirms one thing: your exposure is likely greater in any urban area than it is downwind of the Alberta oil sands. I argued this point with

B.C.’s celebrity environmentalist Tzeporah Berman, who has shuttled back and forth from ForestEthics to Greenpeace in recent years. She took to her Facebook page to publicize a dramatic call to action from 350.org, one of the most strident climate change advocacy groups in the U.S., selectively using a quote and picture from The New York Times. Our debate turned to greenhouse gas emissions. I argued that this PAH study mirrors the true picture of carbon dioxide emissions, which is that nearly 70 per cent of CO2 from all petroleum comes when you burn the final product in engines and furnaces. In B.C., which doesn’t burn coal for electricity, fully 40 per cent of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions are from transportation. Other sources include home heating and industry. Berman insisted I was wrong, and claimed 70 per

cent of Canada’s greenhouse gases come from “heavy industry.” I asked for her source. No response. A 2010 report by a Royal Society of Canada expert panel calculated that 27 per cent of our country’s fossil fuel emissions come from transportation. Another 16 per cent is from fuels burned for electricity. Five per cent is from oil sands operations. Berman’s figure is conveniently untrue. Greenpeace and the rest of the environmental scare industry want you to believe that stopping Alberta’s oil sands and pipelines would save the planet. Also wrong. It would drive oil demand from the U.S., Venezuela’s oil sands and elsewhere, with little net effect on the climate or pollution.

Thank you, Richmond, for supporting Christmas Fund Editor: Eighty years is a long time. If something’s been around that long, it’s had a good run. Some would say a great run. Most things don’t last 80 years. In that respect, the Richmond Christmas Fund is special. In 2012, Volunteer Richmond Information Services celebrated its 40th anniversary. It was a significant milestone for our organization, one that we couldn’t have achieved without a lot of help along the way. So when you consider that this past year the Christmas Fund turned 80—it was established in 1932 by Ethel Tibbits, then editor of The Richmond Review—well, you can imagine how many individuals and organizations and businesses have contributed to its remarkable longevity. It’s been a community effort through and through. Volunteer Richmond began running the Christmas Fund in 2002. It had taken a number of different forms in the years and decades prior, with the Richmond Chamber of Commerce and the local health department playing key roles at different times.

SPIKE LOUNGE & GRILL GRAND REOPENING JAN. 14-31, 2013 Martin van den Hemel photo The Richmond Christmas Fund held a successful toy drive in November.

There were even instances when individuals stepped up to keep the Christmas Fund going. We’re simply carrying on a legacy. The Christmas Fund is an important program, not only because it helps so many people, but because of what it represents. It says something about our community, something fundamental about who we are: we don’t turn our back on those in need. Instead, whether

by volunteering, or donating, or sponsoring a family, we offer a helping hand. In 80 years, we’ve never stopped being there for one another. Thank you, Richmond, for supporting the Christmas Fund. It’s been a great run. May it continue for a long time yet. Elizabeth Specht Executive Director Volunteer Richmond Information Services

Despite the theories, evidence points to Lee Harvey Oswald as JFK shooter Editor: Like Walter Rae, (“Richmond researcher discovers ‘truth’ behind JFK,” Jan. 16) I too have an avid interest in the assassination of President Kennedy. I have spent many years reading numerous books, articles and research papers about this tragic event. I have also viewed all the available photos and the Zapruder short film of President Kennedy being shot. The last time I checked there were about 30 different conspiracy theories about this murder all claiming different and contradictory theories as to who was behind this assassination and who actually shot President Kennedy. Now the first rule of logic demands that all these theories can’t all be correct! Some like Walter Rae, blame shadowy “right-wing” group of government CIA agents who really killed Kennedy, and conveniently set up Lee Harvey Oswald as a “patsy” to take the blame. Others claim that it was the

US Mafia that was really behind JFK’s assassination. Others point a finger at Vice-President Lyndon B. Johnson as the one who had most to gain from death of Kennedy, so it must have been LBJ who put out a contract on President Kennedy in order to become president! Others blame Fidel Castro who ordered this murder because JFK was initiating numerous plots to have Castro killed—Castro learned about these plots and was able to get to President Kennedy before Kennedy got to him. The best and the most thorough investigation of JFK’s assassination, in my humble opinion, was conducted by Vincent Bugliosi, a well known world-class American attorney, who details his findings in his exhaustive book, Reclaiming History: the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy (2007). This book printed in very small text size would take up 12 volumes of text if printed in regular sized text. The footnotes alone were so numer-

ous that they could not be printed in the book but are contained on a CD disk. To those who are really interested in history and not just in speculations about history (which Mr. Rae and other JFK conspiracy theorists embrace), I would highly recommend reading this book. Another, great book on this assassination was written by Gus Russo, who in his book, Live by the Sword: The Secret War Against Castro and Death of JFK (1998), details the best motive and the best reason why Kennedy was killed. Again, hard evidence is presented not just wild speculation. Another invaluable book about this assassination is Edward Jay Epstein’s book, Legend: the Secret World of Lee Harvey Oswald (1978). Anyone wanting to know who Oswald was and why he wanted to kill President Kennedy must read this book! One of favorite claims of JFK conspiracy theorists is to claim that available evidence points that

President Kennedy was shot from the front rather than from the back from sixth floor window of the Book Depository Building where Oswald had built an improvised sniper’s nest. In my collection of President Kennedy books, I have a book called The torch is passed…. This is a step by step illustrated eyewitness account of President Kennedy’s assassination published by The Associated Press shortly after JFK was killed. It contains numerous black and white as well as colour photos. There are several photos of the actual assassination in this book. The most valuable photo contained in this book was taken by AP photographer James Altgens who took his historic photo just seconds after assassin fired the shots that killed President Kennedy. Altgens was standing directly in front of the approaching motorcade containing convertible limousine that was carrying President Kennedy and it shows secret agents as well as spectators

RICHMOND’S TEMPORARY STYROFOAM COLLECTION Richmond makes it easy for residents to dispose of Styrofoam from Christmas packaging. Simply drop off clean, moulded packing Styrofoam by January 20 to: CITY RECYCLING DEPOT 5555 Lynas Lane December 27, 2012 to January 20, 2013 Wednesday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. – 6:15 p.m. The Styrofoam is re-used for insulation and landscaping materials. Please ensure it is clean and in good condition, with no tape, paper, paint or other foreign objects attached. Styrofoam chips are not accepted, and please do not put Styrofoam in your Blue Box or Blue Cart.

LET’S UNCLOG RICHMOND’S PIPES Food scraps, oils and grease should never be disposed down sinks, drains, garburators or diswashers as the material hardens and builds up in the sewer pipes, causing blockages, which can lead to sewage back-ups and overflows. Recycle food scraps and grease in your Green Can /Cart, and take used cooking oils and liquid fats in a sealed container to the Recycling Depot (5555 Lynas Lane, open Wednesday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:15 p.m.) for free disposal.

Let’s trim our waste!

turning their heads back to look back toward Book Depository Building located behind the limousine from which the sound of gunshots came. There were also numerous eyewitnesses who actually saw Oswald pointing rifle from sixth floor before he shot President Kennedy. This one photo all by itself clearly shows that JFK was shot from behind and debunks false claims that JFK was shot from the front. Bugliosi’s book contains more than 50 verified facts and direct evidence (not circumstantial evidence) that clearly point to Lee Harvey Oswald as the shooter who killed President Kennedy. Bugliosi also irrefutably dissects and debunks some of the major JFK conspiracy theories (including one favoured by Walter Rae) that ignore these obvious facts showing that it was indeed Lee Harvey Oswald who killed President Kennedy.

Bye bye tunnel, hello bridge Editor: Re: “Keep the Massey Tunnel, but add a new bridge,” Letters, Jan. 9. Great article and thank you to Carol Day for her words of wisdom. However, the Massey Tunnel replacement —“The Bridge”—is already mandated, decided, and a go, thus, allowing for much larger ships to navigate and ply up/down river. Currently, the Massey sits too high and currently, limits the ship size capability and we are the west end shipping door for the country. The bridge replacement affords a much deeper Fraser River Channel for the likes of Panamax size ships—so named for the maximum allowable sized ships plying the Panama Canal. Accessible/developable shipping industrial land in the Lower Mainland is no longer available and/or at a premium and the inner harbour is full. The bridge will open up many acres of industrial land.

Simon Johnston’s Sisters set for stage

T

Register online…

he world premiere of Simon Johnston’s play Sisters debuts on Gateway Theatre’s MainStage Jan. 31.

Sisters, written by Gateway’s former artistic director, is inspired by Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters. Set in 1936, two Russian sisters live in a massive house in a Chinese garrison town where their deceased father used to train Nationalist Chinese troops. As they struggle to make ends meet and maintain the illusion of their former privileged lives, their Chinese sister-in-law takes over the house, one room at a time. Luisa Jojic, Josette Jorge, John Ng, Sarah Louise Turner and Donna White star; Sarah Rodgers directs. Tickets, $30 to $48, at gatewaytheatre.com or at the Gateway box office at 504-270-1812. Sisters runs to Feb. 16.

Voted Best Bootcamp on the North Shore 2012

The buzz from Gateway Theatre’s Studio B over Winners and Losers is carrying over to Vancouver’s upcoming PuSh festival. The 90-minute play, written and performed by Marcus Youssef and James Long made its world premiere last fall at Gateway, and was one of the plays featured in the Richmond theatre’s SceneFirst script development program. The play is a staged conversation between the two actors, who play a game they’ve created called Winners and Losers. In it they name people places or things and debate whether each is a winner or loser. The play’s run at PuSh International Performing Arts Festival is from Jan. 30 to Feb. 2 at Goldcorp Centre for the Arts in Vancouver’s Woodward’s district. Tickets, $27 to $35, at ticketstonight.ca or 604684-2787. More info at pushfestival.ca.

Make some noise against bullying

Young dancer finds her way as apprentice Richmond’s Emily Chessa has joined B.C.’s biggest dance company

on Pink Shirt Day February 27th…

Richmond’s Emily Chessa is dancing on one of Canada’s biggest stages as an apprentice with Ballet BC.

Staff Reporter

t’s one of Canada’s largest theatres with 2,781 seats, and Emily Chessa was on stage. It was last fall’s opening of Ballet BC’s 2012-13 season at Queen Elizabeth Theatre—a stage Chessa only dreamed of being on as a youngster.

The 21-year-old Richmond woman was now dancing on it. “It was an exhilarating experience,” she said during a break from rehearsal for Ballet BC’s latest show. “From watching Ballet BC in the audience, and thinking it would be so amazing to be on that stage with them, to being in a performance was really humbling.” Chessa joined Ballet BC as an apprentice dancer last year, a company founded in 1986 that features 18 dancers—including Chessa and two other apprentices. She’s following up November’s performance with an appearance in the Vancouverbased company’s show Encore, which hits the stage next week. Three evening performances will feature

three audience favourites from past Ballet BC seasons. Chessa trained at Richmond’s Burke Academy of Dance for seven years with Mary and Elizabeth Burke. Her high school years at Steveston Secondary were cut short when the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School came calling. She graduated from the school in 2010, moved back home to Richmond and started dancing in the graduate program of Vancouver’s Arts Umbrella. Her younger sister Jenny, 19, is also a dancer. Since joining Ballet BC last year, Chessa, who appeared as part of The Richmond Review’s 30 Under 30 in 2009, has been drawing inspiration from the company’s dancers—even if she isn’t able to dance in all pieces. “I’ve always wanted to dance here. To be an apprentice here is a really great accomplishment,” she said. “Ballet BC is a great company. It’s a great community to be in.” See Page 14

arts & entertainment Chessa to dance in Herman Schmerman From Page 13 In Encore, three audience favourites from past Ballet BC seasons will be featured, including William Forsythe’s Herman Schmerman, in which Chessa will be dancing Jan. 25. Set to music by Dutch composer Thom Willems and pushing dancers to the limit, Herman Schmerman was a hit with Ballet BC audiences when it premiered in 2010. “You have to have a lot of stamina for this piece. It’s exhilarating to push the technique and take it to another level,” said Chessa. After this show, she’ll join the company on tour in Ontario next month. Beginning her professional dance training at Royal Winnipeg Ballet School as a teenager, Chessa recognized her love for the art and believed she could have a career in it. Now, back in Richmond and apprenticing at Ballet BC, Chessa has found a company where she can continue to grow—and give back. Said Chessa: “I definitely want to keep going with my career and be a part of the next generation that really expresses this art form.”

Steven Wright tells jokes at River Rock Saturday

Encore by Ballet BC •Queen Elizabeth Theatre, from Jan. 24 to 26 •Featuring Herman Schmerman, 1st Flash and Petite Cérémonie •Presented with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival •Tickets, $22.25 to $70 at ticket master.ca or call 1-855-985-2787

PBS PressRoom photo Comedian Steven Wright brings his standup comedy routine to River Rock.

River Rock hosts a standup comedy show starring Steven Wright on Saturday. The comedian is known for his monotone voice and slow deadpan delivery of offbeat jokes. An example: “Last night I stayed up late playing poker with tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.” Wright, 57, got his big break in 1982 after being booked for his first TV appearance on The Tonight Show. Johnny Carson enjoyed Wright’s performance so much, he invited him to appear again a week later. The rare feat helped put his fledgling career into high gear. On his rarely used Twitter account, Wright offers a 28-word biography: “I was born. When I was 23 I started telling jokes. Then I started going on television and doing films. That’s still what I am doing. The end.” Wright performs Saturday, Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. at River Rock Show Theatre. Tickets, $49.50 to $59.50 (plus fees), at ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000.

B.C. questions takeover of medical testing firm Higher fees, less patient access among concerns by Jeff Nagel Black Press

LIsa Hsieh reviews analysis worksheets at BC BioMed.

The two firms handle the vast majority of publicly funded medical tests not done in hospitals. NDP health critic Mike Farnworth also wants the deal closely scrutinized. “I would not want to end up in a situation where we’re on the short end of the stick – in terms of pricing and ability to negotiate deals and agreements,” he said. B.C. Medical Association president Dr. Shelley Ross said a price reform initiative to try to reduce lab testing fee costs for government should not be affected by the merger. “We’ve been very

happy with the performance of both companies over the years,” Ross said. “We have no reason to think it’s going to change.” The deal is expected to close later this spring, subject to regulatory approval. LifeLabs president and chief executive officer Sue Paish said in a release the operations must become more effective and efficient in light of rising demand, limited funding and a need to continue reinvesting in new technology. “We are fully aligned in our commitment to quality and continuous improvement in patient services in B.C.

going forward,” added BC Biomedical CEO Doug Buchanan. BC Bio began as a partnership of pathologists founded nearly 55 years ago by Dr. Cam Coady and is now a major source of new biotechnology jobs in the Lower Mainland. In a Black Press interview last year, Buchanan estimated the firm is seeing growth of five per cent a year in patient visits and seven to eight per cent in test volumes. The growing and aging population of the Lower Mainland is driving demand, while scientific advances have allowed lab firms to steadily offer new tests.

The planned buyout of B.C.’s second biggest medical lab company by its larger rival has raised questions over the implications of a near-monopoly in the medical testing field. LifeLabs on Tuesday unveiled plans to buy Surrey-headquartered BC Biomedical Laboratories for an undisclosed price. BC Biomedical has nearly 800 employees, 500 of them in Surrey, and runs 45 labs across the Lower Mainland that handle 32,000 tests daily. Toronto-based LifeLabs has 80 service centres in B.C. and does 44,000 tests per day. B.C. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said she’s notified the federal Competition Bureau that the province wants to closely examine the potential impacts of the deal. “We’re interested because it would mean that one private lab company would have about 95 per cent of the private lab business,” she said. A key concern is whether lab fees paid by government could go up under a single dominant provider, she said. In 2011-12, LifeLabs billed the Medical Services Plan $125 million, while BC Biomedical billed nearly $80 million. While the two firms have said there are no plans to lay off staff, MacDiarmid is also concerned the two sets of testing centres may be consolidated, reducing access for patients. “Right now patients in British Columbia have very good access – probably quite a bit better than some of the other provinces.” MacDiarmid said B.C. isn’t yet taking a position for or against the proposed takeover with federal regulators.

The term “university” is used under the written consent of the Minister of Advanced Education effective April 11, 2007, having undergone a quality assessment process and been found to meet the criteria established by the minister. City University of Seattle is a not-for-profit and an Equal Opportunity institution accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

Consumers urged to be vigilant as BBB releases top scams by Jeff Nagel Black Press Predators who target singles on online dating sites and text messages that lure cellphone users into revealing personal information are among the top scams that aim to separate consumers from their cash this year.

The annual top 10 scams list was released Tuesday by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) in partnership with police and both federal and provincial consumer protection authorities. The number one scam of the year actually plays on the role of the bureau itself – fraudsters have sent

millions of official-looking emails to people and businesses claiming they’re the subject of a BBB complaint and investigation and directing them to click a link that downloads a virus that steals banking information and passwords. “The immediate fear is that your company’s reputation may be harmed by a

complaint,” BBB president and CEO Danielle Primrose said. “And that is why the scam works so well.” She said young people with smart phones can be particularly susceptible to text messaging scams that offer them gift cards at major retailers and lure them to a web site where they give up personal information. Romance scams have spiked in activity, she said, noting more than 1,000 victims in Canada lost a combined $14 million last year.

PECIALS! EVERYDAY S TS $4.25 KP PIN TS OF $4.50 PAIN CAN DIAN

Perpetrators always have an excuse why they can’t meet in person and build an online relationship with the victim before asking them to wire money for travel or to help with a heart-breaking family emergency. “These are probably very under-reported,” Primrose said. “Who wants to admit that they’ve been taken advantage of simply for falling in love?” Older schemes are also still making the rounds. Rogue door-to-door

contractors remain an ongoing problem. And ‘curbers’ selling deficient used cars, often imported from the U.S., are expected to become a growing problem as a flood of vehicles damaged by Hurricane Sandy make their way to other jurisdictions, including B.C. “Buy from somebody you have recourse against, such as a licensed dealer,” suggested Doug Longhurst of the Motor Vehicle Sales Authority of British Columbia.

ow do you find an image to tell the story of two Russian sisters being pushed out of their home one room at a time by their new sister-in-law? As you might imagine, finding a picture to represent what a play is all about—one that says more than a page full of words—is no easy task. The Communications team met with Artisitic Director Jovanni Sy & Artisitic Associate Amy Lynn Strilchuk to brainstorm ideas. We had one particular idea we hoped would work.

With the help of photographers David & Emily Cooper and Costume Designer Carmen Alatorre we ended up with these great elements. With some editing magic, and a caption of “Know your place” we came up with what we think is an arresting image.

Restaurant gets one-day closure Posh Charcoal Collaboration Dining, at 3779 Sexsmith Rd., was shut down for one day last weekd by health officials following the discovery of a pest infestation during a routine inspection. The eatery, near Capstan Way and operated by Tony Kuo and Peter Leung, was allowed to re-open last Friday. Thursday’s routine inspection, according to a report available at www.vcha.ca, found “signs of rodent infestation” in the “kitchen and the upper level storage room,” the report said. The restaurant was also closed because of unsanitary conditions. “Entire food preparation area is visibly dirty with spilled food on the floor, walls, ceiling, food equipment, food contact surfaces, meat slicer and stair case at back. Accumulation of equipment, empty boxes and other debris observed in the hot water tank area. Fridges in bar area are visibly dirty with spilled food. Exhaust systems and filters visibly dirty. Date of last service was in 2010,” the report said. The restaurant’s sanitary facilities were also deemed inadequate. “No liquid soap or paper towel is available at hand wash station in the food preparation area and the staff washroom. Food is being stored in the staff washroom. Hand wash sink is in (sic) inaccessible.” No sanitizer was found in the final rinse cycle of the dishwashing machine, the report added

Snowfall doesn’t happen often in Vancouver, but when it does, YVR has the right stuff to deal with the white stuff. Here’s a look at YVR’s winter operations. When winter hits, YVR’s operations team coordinates an airport-wide response to clear snow from runways and taxiways, de-ice aircraft and ensure passengers can get safely to the terminal. From airlines and ground handlers to the control tower team, everyone is involved. December 19, 2012 saw an unprecedented, single-day snowfall descend upon Metro Vancouver. It’s this kind of weather that YVR operations teams plan for year-round. More than 80 pieces of snow removal equipment worked to clear snow from taxiways and runways, keeping planes and people moving safely.

Green Fighters Challenge is looking for a local hero Kins launches contest to help you with your healthy resolutions by Sheila Reynolds and Evan Seal Black Press It’s a new year, and now it’s time for a new lifestyle. Black Press and The Richmond Review have partnered with Kin’s Farm Market to launch the Green Fighters Challenge in 13 communities in the Lower Mainland, which will follow participants over several months as they change their life and get healthy. One person will be chosen from each participating community to make a change and win prizes. The grand prize will be a cruise for two from Cruise Experts. It will be awarded at the end of the 13-week contest. However, one Green Fighter will win a prize each week during weekly challenges. But it’s not just the participants who will be able to win. Canadian Tire will provide prizes for readers as well as the challengers as part of their commitment to healthy living, and you are encouraged to check out the Green Fighters website to follow the participants’ progress and share your thoughts about how you are eating better and getting fit yourself for 2013.

Kin’s Farm Market is pleased to be able to provide fruits and vegetables to the participants in the Green Fighters Challenge, as well as produce to every customer that will put you on the road for achieving your New Year’s resolution and a healthier lifestyle in general. The Green Fighters site will regularly include recipes, special offers and tips for making a change, whether it’s to your diet or fitness level. 2013 is shaping up to be a year of change for UBC student Ben Duenas.

last few years in a classroom, the chemical engineering student is looking to make some changes in his life. “While going to school full time, I didn’t have time to exercise,” said Duenas. “I’ve made it my New Year’s resolution to get out there and try new things.” For Sukhmani Pannu, also 23, getting in shape and staying in shape has become her goal for this year. She has already made some changes to the way she eats. “I found that I used to have a meal around 6:30 or 7 p.m. every night, but now I eat earlier, around 5 p.m. and then have a small salad.” The strategy seems to be working, Pannu said, as she’s already dropped 20 pounds. A recent poll of Lower Mainland residents, however, shows Duenas and Pannu may be in the minority. Results of an Ipsos Reid survey (commissioned by Fitness Town Surrey) released last month indicate just 14 per cent of people actually made New Year’s fitness-related resolutions last year. And of those who did, about two-thirds stuck to them. Those who abandoned their healthy plans listed lack of motivation, laziness, and lack of time as their top reasons for abandoning their good intentions. When asked what would motivate them to continue with keep-fit resolutions, survey respondents said having more time would help, as would personal support from a trainer or nutritionist, or having someone to work out with. Others people said more money – to buy equipment or for a gym membership – might prompt them to exercise, as would a better schedule (such as a more flexible work timetable) or having a regular schedule or fitness program created for them. For Pannu, it doesn’t matter what the statistics show, she said she just wants to get healthy – and look good. “I want to be a fitness trainer, so I need to have a six-pack,” she said, laughing.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. About one in eight women will have breast cancer in North America. It is diagnosed by breast examination, mammography, ultrasound and biopsy. The current recommendation is for all women to begin having mammograms every one to two years starting at age 40. All women should carefully examine their breasts monthly preferably after their periods. Breasts usually change in shape and appearance with age, however, any significant changes or hardening or lumps of concern should alert one to see her physician immediately. Here are some of the risk factors for breast cancer that you should know. • risk increases with age • positive family history especially sister, mother or maternal side aunts and first cousins doubles the risk. • cancer in one breast increases the risk of another cancer in the same breast and the other breast. • dense breast tissue diagnosed by mammography and breast conditions such as atypical hyperplasia increases the risk. • having first child after 30 years of age or having no children at all and starting menstrual cycle before age 12 and menopause after age 55 slightly increases the risk. • obesity, using oral contraceptives for the last ten years or more and using combined hormonal therapy in menopausal women increases the risk. • previous exposure to chest radiation and alcohol consumption increases the risk. This risk is directly related to the amount of radiation exposure and alcohol consumption. • caucasian women tend to have a slightly higher risk compare to African American women. However, the latter tend to get more aggressive tumors if they do end up with breast cancer. • breast feeding for about two years and regular exercising decrease the risk. Stay active, drink very little alcohol if you must do, check yourself for lumps, irregularities and changes in your breasts and get regular examinations by your physician. The earlier this cancer is diagnosed, the higher the chances of cure with treatment. Until next time, this is your local family doctor.

Ask the Experts Q:

Q: Why is there hesitation by some Sellers to A:

When springtime arrives, the bulbs are sprouting and the grass goes green again, more Sellers list their homes for sale. That means more competition if you are also a Seller. It means Buyers have more choices, which could mean fewer showings, fewer offers, and potentially a lower price offer on your home. Hmmmmm. If you are ready now, and if you know how much you want to list your home for, and it feels like the right time, then list your home and take advantage of this time of year. Get your home ready for showings by decluttering, polishing it up and then call your Realtor. If you wait till spring, like many do, you will just be one in a sea of listings that waited until the sun came out……. I’m just saying…..

A:

New Year’s resolutions are always tough to stick to but there are a few things you can do to stay focused. The first thing you need to is break your resolution down into smaller short term goals. For example, if you want to get back in shape start by setting a small goal of exercising 3 times per week. Second, try joining a class or hiring a trainer, your chances of success are far greater if you exercise in a structured environment rather than on your own. Finally, try keeping a journal to record your progress and so you can see where you need to make adjustments if necessary. All the best for 2013! Yours in health, Isaac Payne

Gas fireplaces are much easier to clean, maintain and more efficient than a traditional woodburning fireplace, but they are not maintenance free. Here are 5 tips: 1: For safety, ensure that the gas valve has been turned off prior to maintenance. 2: Have the unit inspected, then serviced by a licensed gas fitter prior to use. They check for leaks and or blockages in the system. Also, arrange annual servicing. 3: Have a glass safety shield installed if it is missing. (Many older units do not have these.) 4: To save money, have the pilot turned off during the spring & summer, again by a licensed gas fitter. 5: Install a plug mounted carbon monoxide detector as close as possible to the fireplace.

Last fall CBC aired a segment on the program Marketplace which showed a wide variety of opinions from different dentists about what treatment the same undercover patient needed. Why would that be so?

CBC also did this a few years ago with similar results. Their University of Toronto experts suggested the wide discrepancies between the treatment proposals was partly because of different training the various dentists had received. What was not established was what the “patient” had requested as their chief concern. Dentists can provide many treatment options, depending on a patient’s needs and wants. However, many people (most, in fact) are unaware what treatment they might be needing. Reputable dental professions are not only responsible for explaining what your treatment options are but, more importantly, why. Dentistry is not rocket science. If you run across a dentist who recommends procedures and they can’t clearly explain to you, or demonstrate why, then you may not need that treatment. It may be the dentist needs you to have the treatment done more than you do. There are, unfortunately, some snake-oil dentists out there. And not all dentists have the same level of care, skill, knowledge and training as others. Treatment plans, also should never be based on what your dental insurance will pay either, although it may play into your decisions about what you wish to do when you are fully informed about your situation. There are many dentists available now and there has been an upswing in ethical issues within the profession in the last few years, according to our profession’s national malpractice insurer CDSPI. If you’re not sure where to go, ask your friends, and if you’re not sure the dental office you’re currently using is right for you, then it probably isn’t.

Q: I’m afraid my old furnace will quit

Being without heat in the middle of winter when your old furnace quits is something you want to avoid especially with the cold snap we are having now. If your contractor is suggesting that your furnace needs replacing it is wise not to put it off. If the cost of replacing your old furnace is the reason making you hold off, consider that some older models of furnaces deliver only 55% of the heat to your home while a new high-efficiency natural gas furnace may deliver up to 97% of the heat it creates to your home. Your old furnace is probably costing you money. A new natural gas furnace will likely save you money on your heating bills.  Financing options are available from financial institutions for home improvement projects and at Ashton Service Group we offer financing to our residential customers with Snap Financial. Check with your preferred plumbing and heating contractor and find out what financing options are available.

Q: Why buy an RRSP? As well as helping you save for retirement, there are two great tax benefits: 1. An RRSP contribution reduces your income tax, and depending on how much you make, you’ll end up with either a lower tax bill or a higher refund. 2. The money earned by an investment in an RRSP is not taxed until it’s withdrawn; it grows tax-free while it’s in your plan. Then, when you’re ready to retire, typically your income is lower and so is your tax rate. Basically, you save on income tax and accumulate tax-deferred savings for your retirement. The deadline for your 2012 RRSP contributions is March 1, 2013. For more information, please contact Daniel Wang Ah-Fat, Financial Advisor, at (604) 270-4233 or daniel_wang@cooperators.ca

It’s a new year and I’ve made resolutions in the past to get back into shape and failed miserably. I do sincerely want to get back in shape and take care of my health but how can I stay on track and continue to make progress without giving up?

put their homes on the market in January?

It doesn’t make sense to me! In my opinion, the facts are pretty simple. This time of year, December to February, there are fewer active listings than at other times of the year, so that means Buyers have fewer choices, right? That means your chances of finding a Buyer might be better, yes? The Buyers that are shopping for a home right now are definitely serious Buyers. They are not lookyloo’s… they are not ‘fishing’….they are serious Buyers who NEED to find a home to buy (or they would not be out in the ice and snow in their mucklucks).

I am suffering from Acne Rosacea. What can I use?

Acne Rosacea is a condition characterized by chronic facial redness and can worsen over time. In some cases, it may look like you are blushing or flushing, even when you are not. There may also be blemishes and pimples alongside the redness. If you suffer from acne rosacea, you probably know that it can come and go and worsen with specific triggers. For example, some people have allergies to dust or fragrances that can worsen the rosacea. The good news is, rosacea can be treated both by prescriptions and by over the counter products. Because many times rosacea flares up due to the use of topical irritants, my basic strategy has always been to simplify skin care regimens and to use topical creams that can renourish the skin. To do this, I recommend Dr. Hauschka gentle cleansing milk, a product that although lightly scented, avoids soap, sodium lauryl sulfate, and parabens that can trigger rosacea. On top of this, I recommend Linacare, a hypoallergenic facial moisturizer that can penetrate into the basal layer of the skin to rehydrate and allow the skin to repair itself. Just by simplifying complex skin care regimens into these 2 easy steps, and adding Metagenics EPA DHA high concentrate fish oil to reduce inflammation, I find that acne rosacea and the skin overall can improve dramatically over a months time. Try these products today or inquire about them with our skin care pharmacists at Pharmasave Steveston Village.

possible litigation?

The answer would be no. I just finished a case where a client took a laptop to their IT person to restore deleted data that would have contained useful evidence in a possible civil fraud case. This was an issue that was severely impacting their business on an ongoing basis. Not only did this IT person do a sloppy job using forensically inadmissible tools, they restored to an external disk then copied back the files to the original hard disk. Needless to say, they overwrote what would have been the data they were looking for and destroyed any evidence in the process. And a heads up to HR and company executives; IT staff are not licensed to investigate and collect evidence on people. Only the state and licensed private investigators are allowed to do that. If you dismiss someone for what you think is cause, and the evidence has not been properly collected, you may be in for some long days in court. For every person I find guilty, I’ll find another one who is not. Interpretation and evaluation of evidence in the IT world is best left to licensed professionals.

Q:

How can we protect ourselves from colds?

A:

When we look at colds we are so engrained in the “medical” way of thinking that we just assume that a cold is a bad thing or a sickness. A different way to look at this is to realize that a cold, with all of its symptoms – runny nose, cough, congestion, etc, is a way that the body cleans itself, a cleansing process. It is necessary and it is a vital way that the body stays healthy. The person with the cold may not FEEL the greatest as they go through the symptoms but it is necessary. The best ways to prevent getting a cold during this busy season are to: • Wash your hands often. • Take your vitamins regularly and eat properly. • Get enough rest. • Avoid excessive stress. • Avoid excessive amounts of sweets and alcohol. • Keep exercising. • Take at least 1000 IU of vitamin D daily. • Say “NO” when you are feeling overwhelmed. • And see your Chiropractor for an adjustment- because a healthy nervous system will help your body to heal faster.

Q: Can Supplements help my Hearing? A:

According to a ‘Healthy Hearing’ article from 2011 studies have shown that dietary nutrients can provide antioxidant benefits. These include Vitamin A, B Complex, Vitamins C and E. They can also increase blood circulation, pump up your immune system and help fight infection. Other minerals such as magnesium, zinc and potassium support nerve transmission and protect the inner hair cells of the cochlea which are vital to hearing well. Green leafy vegetables eaten regularly, fish oils and folic acid are shown to help delay some hearing losses. Of course you should always consult your physician to check if any of these supplements interfere with medications you may be taking. In the meantime a healthy balanced diet is beneficial to your overall health.

We currently have a wood-burning fireplace with brick facing and a mantel. We are planning to install a gas insert. What steps should we follow if we want to update the fireplace surround and mantel? To best prepare for this project two things should happen.

First, do not remove the brick facing. This is what the manufacturers expect to be in place when they designed, tested, and approved their inserts. The existing fireplace and chimney must maintain the standards set by the Fire Code ensuring the heat generated by the new insert will be managed safely by the existing fireplace. If you have a rough rock face then speak with a mason about its removal and prepare to replace it with a standard brick in advance of finishing the fireplace. Second, you should be ready to make a decision on the style, size, and model of fireplace insert. Having the manufacturer’s specifications for the insert will give you clearances for combustible and non-combustible materials. Plan to use tile and/or stone material on the face brick immediately around the opening while the specifications will clarify mantel details. For example, our most popular insert requires a height of 44” for a 12” deep mantel when measured from the hearth whereas choosing a less efficient unit from the same manufacturer will allow the 12” deep mantle to be at a height of 37”.

Q:

What happens if we fail to pass a three quarter vote exempting the strata corporation from the depreciation report requirement?

Brenda@experthearingsolutions.com www.experthearingsolutions.com

Normally, an exemption, if desired, would be voted on at an annual general meeting. It may also be done by calling a special general meeting. The vote should always be conducted well in advance of the next deadline for obtaining a depreciation report. The regulation specifies three such deadlines or triggers: 1. December 13, 2013 (two years after the legislative requirement came into force); 2. Three years after your last valid depreciation report was obtained; and 3. Eighteen months after any previously passed three quarter vote to exempt. The eighteen month time frame allows six months to complete a depreciation report if an exemption passes one year but fails at the next AGM. HOW LONG IS A DEPRECIATION REPORT GOOD FOR? The regulation specifies that a new report must be obtained three years after the last one. These subsequent reports may be less expensive than the original baseline report as some of the information and modeling will only require updating. However, the new report must still include on-site visual inspections and cover at least 30 years from that date. Be aware that, in addition to your assets having aged since the last report, interest rates, inflation rates, and the cost of items and labour will likely have changed. Some experts advise that depreciation reports should cover the entire expected life of the building rather than the minimum 30 years required. Such a report may be no more expensive and would give the strata corporation better information to use in planning, saving and equitably allocating costs between present and future owners.

Littlest Land Rover breezes through big challenges by Jim Robinson

Land Rover LR2

Special to Black Press

W

hen India-based Tata took over, many wondered what would be the fate of Jaguar and Land Rover.

The answer, as we were shown at the recent global launch of the 2013 Jaguar XF/ XJ all-wheel-drive sedans and Land Rover LR2 compact SUV in Mont Tremblant, is both brands are doing very well. The engine in the LR2 is now a 2.0-litre inline turbo four-cylinder sourced from Ford replacing a 3.2-litre Volvo supplied six-cylinder. The new unit produces 240 hp and 250 lb/ft of torque with a six-speed automatic transmission. Top speed is 200 km/h with a 0-100 km/h time of 8.8 seconds. It has a tow rating of up to 1,585 kg (3,500 lb). It wouldn’t be a Land Rover if it couldn’t go just about anywhere on the planet. Thus the heart of the LR2 is a full time allwheel-drive system based on the same Haldex unit as found in the Evoque. This is not a simple “slip and grip” AWD system, but uses Haldex centre-coupling technology that continuously alters the front-rear torque split, through a hydraulically operated multi-plate wet clutch. The system can pre-engage at rest to reduce wheel-spin from standing starts, engages quickly when traction loss is detected and disengages quickly to optimize the response of the stability control systems.

BODY STYLE: Compact luxury SUV/CUV DRIVE METHOD: front-engine, permanent all-wheel-drive. ENGINE: 2.0-litre inline turbocharged four-cylinder (240 hp, 250 lb/ft) FUEL ECONOMY: (Premium) 12.0/8.4/10.4L/100 km city/highway/ combined CARGO: 756 litres behind back seat, 1,668 litres seats folded TOW RATING: Up to 1,585 kg (3,500 lb) PRICES: LR2, $39,990; LR2 SE, $44,590; LR2 HSE, $46,990 and LR2 HSE LUX, $48,190 Only a small amount of torque is fed to the rear wheels under normal conditions, such as on a straight paved road, but in low traction or off-road situations, almost all the engine torque can instantaneously be delivered to the rear wheels, if required. Land Rover calls this its Terrain Response system and drive modes can be selected by the driver by a simple rocker switch on the transmission tunnel. Modes are: General Driving, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud and Ruts and Sand. The LR2 also has a Hill Descent Control feature. Using the anti-lock brake system, it can be programed to let you go down at speeds that can be changed according to which surface is selected. I’ve done this before, but it still takes literally

While the 2013 Land Rover LR2 looks similar to the outgoing model, it sports a new, more powerful engine that uses less fuel plus a new permanent all-wheel-drive system.

a great of leap of faith to never touch the brake and gas and let the system ease you down. Styling is pretty much the same as before but the interior has a host of detail changes, starting with the new centre console with a seven-inch (178 mm) color touch screen that controls the Meridian Sound System to the optional navigation system. A way-cool feature is the optional “Say What You See” voice activation system which will prompt drivers visually with the commands they need to speak in order to control functions in the audio, optional satellite navigation, and phone systems. The prompts are displayed in an easy-to-follow ‘step by step’ format on the screen.

But perhaps the best feature of the interior is the commanding view of the road one gets from the driver’s seat. There are four trim levels with pricing starting at: LR2, $39,990; LR2 SE, $44,590; LR2 HSE, $46,990 and LR2 HSE LUX, $48,190. In the compact luxury SUV segment there are many choices, all competitively priced and all sumptuously equipped. But what stands out is the essential “Britishness” of the LR2 with the look and feel of great solidity made even more so by that “thunk” sound of the door as it closes. And, of course, there is that cachet of driving a Land Rover you just don’t associate with its nearest competitors.

he 2013 Cadillac ATS represents a wonderful insight into how GM corporate thinking and reaction to consumer interests have changed.

Prior to the meltdown of 2009, GM pretty well pumped out what it thought the people wanted, the Cadillac Cimarron of the 1980s being a prime example. Based on the lowly J-car chassis shared with econocars like the Chevrolet Cavalier, it was just that—a front-drive Cavalier with a leather trim package and better suspension bushings. It put consumers off the idea of a baby Cadillac for years after. Cadillac tried again in 2002 with the CTS, a much more serious effort with rear- or all-wheel drive and a nicely weighted chassis topped off by signature, razor-edge styling. While it was hoped the CTS would attract BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 buyers, the CTS was bigger and heavier — really more mid-size like the 5 Series and A6. In a bold move, a completely new chassis—the Alpha—was created for a new generation of small, nimble cars of which the ATS would be first. We will be hearing a lot more about the Alpha in coming years and I suspect the new generation Camaro among them. The Alpha was designed for rear or all-wheel-drive and 50:50 weight distribution —key elements if the ATS was going to match the Eurosedans. Like the Europeans, the ATS offers a choice of gasoline engines, but unlike the others, no diesel (yet). The styling leaves no one in doubt that this is a Cadillac but it is also very aerodynamic with an integrated rear spoiler, outside mirrors optimized for wind flow and active shutters behind the grille that close at speed to cut drag. Equipped with the 3.6-litre and AWD, my tester was fitted out in ruby red metallic paint, machined 18-inch alloy wheels and wonderful biscuit-coloured leather.

G N I T I U R C E R NOW W E N

! S R E D I R

The 2013 Cadillac ATS is a very serious attempt to produce a worldclass sports sedan with a competent engine/suspension system and a choice of rear- or all-wheel-drive.

There are several interior trim materials such as carbon fibre, aluminum and “sustainably sourced exotic woods”. The leathers are offered in a variety of tones and all, like the panels, are sewn with French stitching. With the 3.6-litre, the ATS is deceptively fast. Here, the optional heads-up display was a plus not a hindrance, as a majority of twisty roads I used snake through cottage country where the locals are not that vigilant but the police are. Sight lines ahead and to the side were fine but the very high trunk lid made setting the outside mirrors correctly a must and the use of a backup camera a necessity. This is a remarkably different kind of Cadillac and one that should help return the brand to the time when it billed itself as “the Standard of the World”.

Toyota Corolla: The ‘Energizer’ bunny for small cars by Lorne Drury Special to Black Press

T

he Toyota Corolla is like the ‘Energizer bunny’— it just keeps going and going.

One of the best-selling cars in Canada year after year, the Canadian-built Corolla is now in its 11th generation and still going strong after 40 years on the market. In fact, Toyota Canada just released its latest sales figures to show that 2,371 Corollas were sold in December, and a total of 40,906 for all of 2012— an increase of 11.6 per cent over the year before and 43 per cent of all Toyota car sales for the year. Not bad for a car with the current generation nearing the end of its shelf life and the 12th generation set to launch as a 2014 model. So why still such strong sales numbers now for the Corolla? What the Corolla offers in spades is affordability, reliability and fuel efficiency. And although there are a great many impressive new entries in the segment, the Corolla continues to satisfy thousands of dedicated followers in this country. It starts at $15,450 for the base CE trim level that even offers a moonroof package ($2,960), which Toyota says is the lowest-priced car with a moonroof in the compact

segment. My tester was the above-mentioned CE with moonroof package and four-speed automatic transmission ($1,000) that priced out at $19,410 ($21,010.20 with all taxes and freight and PDI). What you get for that price is a solid, reliable compact car that is no longer all that compact. In fact, it is fairly spacious inside although rear seat legroom is at a premium when the front seats are in their rearmost positions. The ride is comfortable and the cabin quiet except under hard acceleration. Power to the front wheels comes from a 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine that makes 132 hp and 128 lb/ft of torque. This provides decent acceleration, but not a terribly exciting driving experience. All Corollas are offered with the choice of a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic. The base CE has features such as tilt/telescoping steering column, 60/40 split folding rear seat, outside temperature gauge, dual vanity mirrors, 12-volt accessory power outlet, dual power adjustable/heated exterior mirrors and lots more. Available option bundles include the Convenience Package that adds steering wheel audio controls, air conditioning, upgraded audio system with Bluetooth, and

power door locks with keyless entry. Move up to the Enhanced Convenience Package and you add heated front seats, power windows and cruise control. The Moonroof Package adds all these features plus the moonroof. The Corolla S starts at $20,605 and offers more sporty features including a full skirt package, unique scuff plates, leatherwrapped steering wheel with integrated audio controls, sport seats with special fabric, fog lamps and a rear spoiler. A Moonroof Package or Technology and Leather Package are available for

the Corolla S. At the top of the ladder is the Corolla LE, starting at $21,170 that has 16-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, metallic dash accents, steering wheel controls, cruise control, keyless entry, power moonroof and fog lamps. In the dash is a 6.1-inch display screen for the new-for-this-year six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth. Optional is an Upgrade Package with eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, automatic climate control, automatic headlamp system and smart key with pushbutton start.

GVHBA gearing up for a great 2013 By Kerry Vital

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association is welcoming the new year with a slate of big events. The first will take place on Feb. 6 at the Delta Burnaby Hotel and Conference Centre. The Legends of Housing event will include a panel of residential construction industry leaders including David Podmore of Concert Properties, Peeter Wesick of Wesgroup and Ward McAllister of Ledingham McAllister discussing where they think the housing industry is going and their experiences in the industry, followed by a question and answer session. The session will be moderated by urban design specialist Bob Ransford of Counterpoint Communications. The GVHBA will also announce the finalists for the 2013 Ovation Awards at the event, which is also the first dinner meeting of the year. Tickets can be purchased on the GVHBA website until Feb. 4. The next big event in the GVHBA calendar is the BC Home and Garden Show on Feb. 20 to 24. The association hosts the GVHBA Pro Renovation + Design Centre every year, showcasing before and after photos of professional renovations by member companies. You are also able to book a free consultation with a renovation or design professional. The event will take place at BC Place, with tickets available on the day or at www.bchomeandgardenshow.com. While you’re there, you can see photos of the finalists for the Ovation

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association will hold its annual First-Time Home Buyer Seminar on March 19. It will feature a panel of experts ready to answer your questions, above. The BC Home and Garden Show will take over BC Place next month. It will feature the GVHBA Pro Renovation + Design Centre, below, where you can see photos of gorgeous renovations.

Awards, and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award, which will be handed out for the first time this year. The ceremony will take place in April. The show features more than 425 local experts in all aspects of home ownership, from renovation to organization, appearances by HGTV celebrities like Sarah Daniels of Urban Suburban and tons of tips for outdoor living and gardening. The third big event of the next few months is the annual First-Time Home Buyer Seminar on March 19 at the Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey. The seminar is the largest of its kind in North America and is always popular. Admission is free, though preregistration is required on the GVHBA website and attendees are asked to bring an item for the Surrey Food Bank. “Our experts will help first-time buyers consider all available options and important issues before they take that critical first step onto the property ladder,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Real estate continues to be a hot topic in this region, so seminar attendance is expected to be as many or greater than the 750 young people who attended last year’s event.” The seminar will cover a wide range of topics, including

finding the best home for you, how to choose a location, what’s involved when buying a home before it’s built and wading through the legal considerations that come with purchasing a home for the first time. Doors will open at 6 p.m. to allow participants to talk to the experts one-on-one, and the seminar will take place between 7 and 9 p.m. For more information about any of these events and to see a list of others, visit www.gvhba.org.

news

Metro targets truck traffic, port growth by Jeff Nagel Black Press Metro Vancouver’s board intends to shine a brighter spotlight on challenges like road congestion and the growing pains from port expansion this year. A new transportation committee has been created that will be chaired by Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. Although the regional district has no direct jurisdiction over transportation, Watts said the new committee is an appropriate place to examine issues that have impacts that go beyond the individual authority of TransLink, the provincial transportation ministry, federal government or local cities. “There isn’t one body that’s looking at the whole entire system,” Watts said. “With the amount of growth that’s going to take place, particularly South of the Fraser over the next few years, there has to be some critical thinking in terms of traffic management and the movement of goods through the region.” Most of the effort to brace the region for forecasted port growth has consisted of Ottawa and Victoria negotiating deals to jointly build major Asia Pacific Gateway infrastructure, such as the South Fraser Perimeter Road and Roberts Bank rail corridor upgrades. But Watts said more must be done to consider the impacts on locals, including the need for public transit, and to try to better align plans of different agencies. More than 700,000 trucks cross the border each year and a further increase is expected as Port Metro Vancouver aims to further ex-

pand Deltaport, Watts said. “We’ve got to look at where are these trucks going to go, how do they deliver goods throughout thre region and the province, and is the infrastructure in place to have that capacity?” There’s no provision yet for more truck parking as part of the plan to expand the port, Watts said. “Now we’ve got everybody parking on agricultural land. So if there’s an expansion at the port there’s got to be something put in place to accommodate truck traffic. And that’s not occurring.” The transportation committee replaces Metro’s port cities committee, which was originally struck to represent cities in a dispute over port land taxation but has also examined the expected increase in oil tanker traffic from the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. Watts expects it will continue to examine the tanker issue, among others, and seek to collaborate with railways, airports, trucking firms and other agencies influencing regional transportation. The province’s plan to replace the Massey Tunnel is another topic Watts expects will be tackled. “What does that look like on the impact for the region?” she asked. “Are there better ways and better synergies and things we can work on collectively together?” Delta Mayor Lois Jackson, the committee’s vice-chair, said it won’t duplicate the work of the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation, which is part of the TransLink governance structure but can only approve or reject significant tax hikes. “With all due respect to TransLink, they’ve been scrambling around trying to put buses out there and not making any major analysis

of what we’ve got and what we need,” Jackson said. “TransLink hasn’t even begun to look at things like the Massey Tunnel. Why? Because it’s not their jurisdiction.” Because Metro is charged with regulating regional growth, Jackson and Watts said the regional district has a vested interest in trying to ensure land use and transportation policies are well-coordinated and don’t work against each other. Other committee members are Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay, Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan,

Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew, Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, Port Coquitlam Coun. Mike Forrest, Area A director Maria Harris, Vancouver Coun. Geoff Meggs, North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto, North Vancouver District Mayor Richard Walton and New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright. Metro board chair Greg Moore, who created the new transportation committee, has also appointed mayors and councillors to serve on other Metro committees for 2013. Most of the appointments are unchanged from last year.

Predeceased by her loving husband of 49 years, Jacques in 1998. resident of Richmond for 55 years.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 19, 2013 at 2:30 pm at The Lansdowne Kingdom Hall 11014 Westminster Highway. Richmond, BC. Everyone welcome.

ROGAL, Mary Katherine. It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of our mother’s passing. Mary passed away early Tuesday morning January 15, 2013 surrounded by her family. She leaves behind her children Stan (Jacquie), Dave (Becci), Nicki (Rick), Lisa (Sigmunt), Peter (Tracy) and her grandchildren Simon, Sean, Aniela, Justina, Katie, Mark, Maggie, Josh, Danielle, Taylor and her great grandchildren Livia, Gabriella and Dylan. By request there will be no memorial service.

Lawrence Allen Thurlow Moseley died on January 13, 2013. He was at home, with his cherished wife of 56 years, looking out the window at the garden he loved. Born in Gillingham, Kent, England on February 28, 1933, he was educated at King’s School, Rochester. At age 16, Lawrence started five years’ legal articles, for which his father paid 300 guineas. He passed the Final Examination in 1954 and was awarded Honours in later academic exams. He was admitted as a Solicitor on April 1, 1955. He served his U.K. National Service as Pilot Officer in the Royal Air Force. Lawrence married Kathleen (“Kay”) Daulman on April 2, 1956. After emigrating to Canada, Lawrence articled to Ivan B. Quinn, Q.C. of Bull Housser and was called to the B.C. Bar in 1958. Soon after, Lawrence and Kay moved from their West-End apartment to Richmond, where homes were more affordable. In 1961, Lawrence founded his own law practice, in what was then the tallest building in Richmond, consisting of two stories. Like most young sole practitioners, Lawrence specialized in “what walked in the door,” benefiting from a close association with Richmond Savings Credit Union and a local bank. Lawrence was innovative in his legal thinking, practice management, and concern for his employees and their families. He practiced law in Richmond and Langley until his retirement. Lawrence and Kay built their dream home on the bluff on Marine Drive, White Rock in 1980. In 1995 they moved to Panorama Ridge, Surrey. At both properties, Lawrence exercised his keen sense of architectural and landscape design. Predeceased by his sister Doreen. Survived by his wife Kay, son Nick (Nance), daughter Sarah (Tomo), and beloved grandchildren Daniel, Gillian McLean (Jordan) and Alexander, brother Donald (Barbara) and his children, Michael, Corelia, Yolanda (Andy) and Irena (John), and nephew Timothy (Sabine). In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation, OWL Rehabilitation Society, or the SPCA. Memorial service at 11am, Wednesday, January 23, 2013, at Victory Memorial Park, 14831 - 28 Avenue, Surrey, BC.
