Strip mall could give way to city’s tallest towers City prepares to launch a study on potential impact of building heights by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

All in the wand Dianne O’Brien has a certain way of drawing attention at Garry Point Park. Using an oversized bubble wand and steady skill, the retired nurse created giant bubbles hefty enough to bounce off pond water during a recent outing, captured by Richmond teacher and photographer Clare Scott.

A No. 3 Road strip mall known as Time Square could become the site of Richmond’s tallest buildings. Towers in City Centre can be built to a maximum of 47 metres (150 feet), but Townline Homes is mulling a project whose buildings would exceed that limit. City staff are now urging council to approve a study of higher buildings—something envisioned in the new Official Community Plan. Any increase, however, requires the backing of the Vancouver Airport Authority and Transport Canada, which also must study the idea. “The federal study would determine if and where an increase may occur, and the safety implications for the airport and city. If Transport Canada allows an increase, it is the city who would determine how high the increase would be,” noted Terry Crowe, the city’s manager of policy planning. Townline has yet to submit a rezoning application for the four-lot strip mall, at 6560 to 6700 No. 3 Rd., a site across from Richmond Centre. Crowe’s report notes higher buildings could provide Richmond with a more varied skyline, allow architects to create more efficient and interesting designs and enable developers to better use limited space in City Centre. But any change in the maximum height is likely years away. Crowe said the city has requested the airport initiate a study since 2004, but it has yet to begin. If it does, that analysis could take at least three years. Nonetheless, Richmond is likely to complete its own analysis this year to expedite the process and possibly prompt airport officials to act. Any increase in building height would centre around city hall, and the city’s study wouldn’t involve public input. “As the proposed analysis would be mainly technical in nature, to avoid false expectations and speculation, it is suggested that during the review process there be limited public consultation and after it is completed council can determine an appropriate consultation approach,” noted Crowe.

Police charge man in 2006 murder case Jaswant Gill, 40, charged with murder of wife Gurpreet Gill, 33 by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

Richmond Fire Fighter Local 1286 members present a $100,000 cheque to the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters Association Burn Fund. Their contribution will fund an accommodation unit, named in their honour, at the new Burn Fund Centre in Vancouver.

Richmond firefighters show big heart with $100,000 donation Local union is one of eight across B.C. contributing big dollars for new Burn Fund Centre Richmond firefighters are donating $100,000 to fund one of eight units at the future Burn Fund Centre in Vancouver. “We’ve seen firsthand that helping with accommodation for burn and trauma survivors and their families can be one of the most significant contributions to help survivors physically and emotionally recover and live a full life,” said Mike Hurley, president of the Burn Fund. “We’re so grateful that the firefighters in Richmond have shown such leadership in helping us meet this critical need.”

The new $13.1-million Burn Fund Centre—to be built at 3891 Main St. in the next few years—will provide eight short-term stay units to meet the critical shortfall in appropriate accommodation for burn and trauma patients and their family caregivers. The centre will also house the offices of the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters Association and Burn Fund and include ground floor retail space to help fund the ongoing operation of the building. The Burn Fund has now secured 80 per cent of necessary funding and is currently in the midst of a capital campaign. The donation from Richmond firefighters will fund one of eight units in the new centre, and will be named in their honour. They join firefighters in Burnaby, Cranbrook, Delta, Kamloops, Kelowna, North Vancouver District and Surrey in contributing a total of $675,000 to the cause.

According to the Burn Fund, B.C. has a critical shortfall in accommodation for burn and trauma patients and their family caregivers. Patients’ health may be compromised when they have to return home sooner than medically advised or live in accommodations not suited to recovery from a burn or trauma. Each year almost 700 children and adults from across the province are admitted to the burn, plastic and trauma unit at Vancouver General Hospital and B.C. Children’s Hospital. Patients who come from outside the Lower Mainland make up 27 per cent of cases, and 60 per cent of those are paying an average of eight weeks of accommodation. “Nobody plans to be a burn survivor, but when it happens, your family’s life is turned inside out in a matter of seconds,” said Lisa Lacamell, executive director of the Burn Fund.

For years, police investigators were stumped in their efforts to identify the body of a woman whose remains were found in 2006 in a heavily wooded area off Shell Road, near Alderbridge Way. At the time of the body’s discovery, in June 2006, relatives had not yet reported the woman missing, and so for more than five years, the case went unsolved, Cpl. Adam MacIntosh of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said. But thanks to some great sleuthing by Vancouver Police, and some DNA sent from India, some measure of closure was finally given to the woman’s family. On Saturday, Vancouver Police arrested Vancouver’s Jaswant Singh Gill, 40, and charged him with the seconddegree murder of his wife, Gurpreet Gill, 33. “It was a mystery that caused great sorry to family members here and in India, and posed a major challenge for our investigators,” Vancouver Police Sgt. Kevin McLaren said. “Even though initially there were very few clues, our investigators never gave up. They believed they owed it to the family and the victim to stay on the case until it was solved.” Gurpreet Gill’s family reported her missing to Vancouver Police in 2006, and as the investigation proceeded, McLaren said it “became clear she had likely met with foul play.” “For years, investigators looked for the evidence that would link a suspect to the murder. Recently, they found what they needed,” McLaren said. Gurpreet Gill’s body was found in a thickly wooded area off Shell Road that’s popular among blackberry pickers and near the road’s gravel shoulder where truckers pull their rigs for a rest. Jaswant Gill remains in custody, and is next scheduled to appear in Vancouver provincial court on Feb. 25 at 9:30 a.m.

Man pleads guilty to grisly 2009 murder Chang Xi Wang will be sentenced March 28 in deaths of Yan Lin, 37, and Joseph Zhe Hu, 36 by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The man charged in the grisly 2009 double-murder of a local couple at a McDonald’s restaurant, has pled guilty to murder and manslaughter. Chang Xi Wang entered the guilty pleas last week in B.C. Supreme Court to the murder of Joseph Zhe Hu, 36, and to the manslaughter of Yan Lin, 37. According to the Ming Pao Daily News, while the victims Hu and Lin lived together like a couple with their children, Lin was actually legally married to Wang, the man who killed her that Aug. 28, 2009 evening. Wang’s lawyer, Don Morrison, said Wang’s guilty plea carries with it a penalty of life in prison. After agreeing upon a statement of facts about the case, Morrison and the Crown will argue what’s a fitting period before Wang is permitted to make an application for parole. Wang’s sentencing hearing before B.C. Supreme Court Jus-

tice Arne Silverman on March 28 at 10 a.m., is scheduled for half the day. Morrison would not reveal whether Wang, Lin and Hu were in some way linked to an immigration fraud scheme or love triangle. But Lin and Hu both worked for Maplestream Business Development, an immigration consulting firm, and Lin was listed as the company’s vice-president. Back in 2009, realtor Linda Wang told The Richmond Review that the two victims had been happily living together in their Riverdale Drive home since 2004, and were raising three children as well as a nephew in the home. They also lived with Lin’s parents, who were in their late 60s. According to court records, just two days prior to the murders, a no-contact order barring Wang from contacting the victims—along with six others—had expired. The no-contact order came on the heels of an assault conviction against Wang in May of 2008, in which Lin was the victim. On the night of the murders, Wang was arrested just a couple of blocks away, thanks in part to an off-duty Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team officer who was only a block from the scene of the slayings at the time. The grisly and violent stabbing scene horrified customers and staff at the popular eatery, Canada’s first McDonald’s outlet.

A new three-storey building at 3531 Bayview St. will be two-thirds residential, under a new proposal at city hall.

New proposal floated for Bayview lot Site of Towns Netting and Marine Supplies store subject of new development plan by Matthew Hoekstra

lage and the development exceeds the city’s requirement for parking stalls, according to a staff report. City council paved the way for the development last summer by giving unanimous approval to demolish the former Towns store. The building wasn’t designated heritage, but lies within the Steveston Village Heritage Conservation Area, in which demolitions require council approval.

Staff Reporter A new development plan is being floated for a site kitty-corner to Steveston’s fishing fleet. Once home to Towns Netting and Marine Supplies, 3531 Bayview St. could soon be the site of a threestorey mixed-use building. On Tuesday city council’s planning committee considered a rezoning proposal to allow for ground-floor retail and six homes over a partially in-ground parking structure. In 2011 councillors saw a similar proposal for the land—located in Steveston Village across from the Gulf of Georgia Cannery—but the application was withdrawn after the owner sold the site to Penta Builders Group. The new proposal, from Cotter Architects Inc. on behalf of Penta Bayview Holdings Ltd., calls for two-thirds residential—12,835 square feet—with the remaining 7,629 square feet dedicated to commercial space. The proposed density is less than allowed in the vil-

Mess at Massey after driver crashed into guard rail George Massey Tunnel traffic was a mess Monday afternoon after a car crashed into the guard rail on the Steveston Highway overpass above Highway 99. Southbound traffic on Highway 99 to the tunnel was backed up for miles after pieces of the guard rail tumbled to the roadway. The driver of the car lost control on the overpass around 2 p.m., with the collision sending a section of the guard rail plummeting down onto Highway 99. Another metallic section remained dangling above and had to be removed by work crews. No vehicles were hit by the fallen guard rail which managed to keep the car from plummeting off the overpass.

EDITORIAL: Support of Ethels is admirable

F

riday, March 8 is International Women’s Day, and on that afternoon, the Ethels will take centre stage and be extra special as it will mark the 20th fundraising luncheon since it was founded in 1994.

Local support for the Ethels has been spectacular. Whether it’s businesses sponsoring the event, providing free services or products, or purchasing tables, or ordinary citizens buying $50 tickets one at a time, or nominators taking the time to fill out a nomination and seek out reference letters, the Ethels are truly a team effort. And although local support for Nova House and Chimo remains strong, that’s not the case every-

where in the province. Some sobering facts about domestic violence were referred to in an article written by Shabna Ali, executive director of the B.C. Society of Transition Houses and Tracy Porteous, executive director of Ending Violence Association of B.C. In the article, reference is made to a one-day census conducted in November of 2011 at the 124 transition homes in B.C. On that single day, 1,110 women and children were helped, another 1,461 assisted by phone or e-mail. But turned away were 658 women, youth and children. “(Other) anti-violence programs connected to the Ending Violence Association of BC are having the same problem,” they wrote. “There just isn’t

enough funding in place to respond.” Another sobering fact: 100 women were killed by their spouses in B.C. between 2003 and 2011. So while the Ethels are doing a wonderful job of celebrating the accomplishments of local women, the spotlight is also on Nova House, and the amazing staff who make an everyday difference in the lives of so many. People who buy tickets to the Ethels need to keep in mind that violence against women happens every day. And without their support, those desperate women seeking to begin a new chapter in their lives will be turned away too, as will their children. That’s something we can all do something about, and buying a ticket to the Ethels is a great first step.

Life Lessons

Andrea Phillpotts

I

t was one of those days where I didn’t want to get out

Yes, it was a Sunday but I’d had a heck of a week and was content to spend the whole day inside, cocooning. But it was not to be so. My five year old pulled the covers off me and said he wanted to feed the ducks. We packed some PB&J sandwiches and water bottles, pulled on our gumboots, and headed to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta. It was there, surrounded by hundreds of feathered friends, that I found the ultimate blues buster—feeding the ducks. Going to the Reifel Sanctuary is a soothing

trip in itself. If I were to imagine what heaven looks like, I think it would be one of Westham Island’s grassy trails with the spring sunshine warming my face. We picked up a bag of duck feed and started out on our walk (no stale bread for these modern birds—it is nutritionally unsound.) Within moments, we had a gaggle of birds swarming us— mallards, Canada geese, pintails, coots, and the occasional wood duck. Oh, the enthusiasm, the energy! If you’ve ever seen a duck run before, you know how hilarious it is to see their tubby bodies rocking back

and forth as they speedwaddle after you in their pursuit of food. There are so many types of ducks, some with blue beaks, others with needle sharp tails, and even others with stubby feet that look like green beans. There are ducks that sound like children’s toys squeaking and others that remind you of an old geezer’s laugh. In the distance we heard the pterodactyl rattle of the Sandhill cranes. Very soon I found the blues of the morning drift away like steam in the sunshine. Our human family sat down on a bench and counted all the different types of

birds we could see—the red winged black bird, the tiny chickadees, and the multitude of ducks. We felt at one with the world and close as a family. From a day starting with doom and gloom, I’d ended up going to the birds—and finding my smile. Andrea Phillpotts is a Richmond writer and teacher.

letters Hospital provides great care

our hospital staff and volunteers. Jack Wootton Richmond

Editor: I recently suffered a mishap resulting in a broken ankle. I was very impressed by the care that I received at Richmond Hospital during my visit to emergency and the subsequent surgery a week later. From the cheerful fellow who provided parking tips for my wife while wheeling me to preop from the cast clinic, to the solicitous nurses in post-op, my treatment throughout the whole experience couldn’t have been better. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Kendall, despite his long and demanding day, even took the time to phone and reassure my wife after the operation. In this time of provincial budget cuts, it makes you wonder where our health system would be without the dedication and hard work of

Losing farmland hurts us all

OPEN HOUSE

THURS. FEB. 28 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Editor: Re: “New farm operators seeking to ‘improve the land’.” The photo of Mr. Bill Jones with Mr. Dave Sandhu made me wonder what he is looking so smug about because when paves over our environment, it affects everyone, even Bill Jones Horticulture Inc. Does he not realize that we are losers in this. Geraldine Wray Richmond

Population growth comes at a cost Editor: The mayor seems pretty proud

at how our population has grown. Firstly our hospital sure can’t handle being over-populated and now we live in a concrete jungle. Is this healthy? What was once a lovely city that we could be proud of is no longer the case. M. Bates Richmond

Defining low income Editor: So BC Housing will pay $800/ month for these “low income’ units, while charging the truly low income tenants $309” and my tax bill plus blood pressure are about to exit the solar system! Ouch! Low income now means your second car isn’t also a Mercedes? Ask the drastically increased homeless population the meaning of “low income” then get back to me to discuss “affordable housing.” George Pope Blundell

Samantha takes the challenge for Richmond… Reason for Applying: I previously lost 50 pounds by changing my eating habits and taking a cardio kickboxing class. I swore I would never gain it back but I love to cook and unfortunately my love for cheese, dips, sauces and butter has put me back in my old big girl pants. In the New Year I have recently started back at an all-women’s cardio kickboxing circuit and have a goal to make it there at least three times a week. I have been trying to cook healthier meals and include more fruits and vegetables, but sure could use some more encouragement! One of my best friends lost her father to cancer recently and I’m sure it would mean a lot to her and his memory.

Conference with a 21-184-1 record, but it was their play against Richmond during the regular season that has earned them the respect of the Sockeyes. While Richmond won four of the five games, only one was decided by two or more goals. “There’s no question they have our attention,” said Richmond coach Aaron Wilbur. “They play to their strengths and seem to have a good sense as a group when to push and when to hold back. They really clog up the neutral zone and don’t give you a lot. You really have to earn you chances.” The play of Richmond’s leadership group, which includes veteran forwards Jeremy Hamaguchi and Rudi Thorsteinson, will be key in determining how far the Sockeyes go this post-season. But it will take the full commitment of every play on the roster if the team is to realize its ultimate championship goal. “At this time of the season things happen really fast,” said Wilbur. “If you try to manage everything you can overcoach. This is a time when your leadership is so critical and the message has to be to keep an even keel. If things are going well, you want to be able to keep your foot on the gas, but if they’re not going well you also need that same levelheadedness.” See Page 13

sports Series begins with three games in three nights From Page 12 Despite winning the regular-season title, Richmond actually slumped in the final two weeks before capping the schedule with an emphatic 11-2 rout of the Ridge Meadows Flames last week. The Sockeyes lost four games in a row, albeit one in which every game was decided by a single goal and three in overtime. The games were also played in a stretch of 10 days, including three in four days— certainly a good prelude of the playoff schedule. “Every team is going to go through a period when they face some adversity or don’t play their best,” said Wilbur. “But that said, there were times during that stretch when I thought we played extremely well, like when we allowed only eights shot in two periods (but lost in overtime to Abbotsford).” Richmond’s final tuneup prior to the playoffs came last Saturday, when the Sockeyes outscored their alumni 8-5 in the club’s annual scholarship fundraiser at Minoru Arenas. More than the victory, however, was perhaps a growing appreciation among the current players for the contributions made by those who came before

“It’s easy to say you’ve got to buy in,” Wilbur said. “You hear the message so often it almost becomes a bit of a clichė But it’s through commitment and sacrifice that you build a culture where people are willing to play for something bigger than than themselves. “The alumni game spoke to the culture of our franchise and the togetherness that exists,” Wilbur continued. “We’ve got really good people in our (dressing) room and a lot of guys for whom this will be their final games as Sockeyes. I think our group really wants to leave a mark on this program.”

It was yet another nailbiter. And, again, the Steveston-London Sharks persevered. On Friday, for the second year in a row, the Sharks held on to edge the R.A. McMath Wildcats for the Richmond high school senior girls’ basketball playoff banner before a packed crowd at StevestonLondon Secondary. Grade 11 guard Emily Ip drained a three pointer with under two minutes to play that broke a tie game and enabled the Sharks to emerge with a 52-47 victory. The win gave

the Sharks the No. 1 Richmond seed going into this week’s Lower Mainland AAA championships, while the Wildcats settled for the No. 2 seed. “We played McMath earlier in the year and won by double figures,” said Hamaguchi. “But it was no surprise the final was so close. It may not compare to the Richmond-Steveston rivalry which was the best in the province, but there’s no question there’s a rivalry there and respect for each other’s program.” The Sharks didn’t shoot particularly well from the field, certainly an Achilles heel for a small, perimeter team like Steveston-London. But they found another way to win by sinking 11 of 12 free throws and getting a few inside baskets as well. “We just had a bad shooting day and a good foul-shooting day I guess,” said Hamaguchi. “But McMath also employed a good defence (focused on shutting down two of the Sharks’ top shooters, Anmol Mattu and Aliya Prasad) that caused some problems. Fortunately, we got a few points from other kids to fill the void.” “To win Richmond was great, and to do it against such a respected rival made it even more fun,” said Hamaguchi, who believes his team—while underdogs—is capable of not only making provincials but winning it all. “Our Achilles’ heel is that we’re not very big or dominating inside the paint, so we have to make up for that somehow,” he explained. “It’s not the ideal way to succeed, but that said if we wake up and feeling good on a particular day we can shoot the lights out.” The Sharks extended their season Monday, winning their first Lower Mainland zone game 59-53 at Kitsilano. Next up will be a date against the powerhouse North Shore rep, Handsworth Royals, Thursday at 8:15 p.m. at Burnaby South Secondary.

Griffins city champs again

Boston Pizza junior golf tour tees off in March The Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour tees off its 15th season with the Nationwide Series at Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club March 16 and 17 and at the Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam March 18. The season-long tournaments are open to golfers up to age 19, and this event is also a qualifier for spots into the San Diego Junior Masters Future Collegiate World Tour championship in Florida.

Fourth in league play, Palmer’s offence ignites in playoffs It may be a surprise to some that the R.C. Palmer Griffins are Richmond high school senior boys’ basketball champions again, but not to longtime coach Paul Eberhardt. “Many people doubted we would win it again (for a seventh consecutive season) but the boys showed great heart and played incredible basketball when it counted most,” he said. Palmer capped last week’s playoffs with a 91-81 win over host J.N. Burnett Breakers Friday. This followed a 7-3 regular-season, a

record that itself was a bit misleading since two of the losses were in overtime and the other by a point. Palmer opened the playoffs against the Richmond Colts in a competitive first- round game. The Griffins clung to a 37-36 halftime lead with league MVP Jamie Madewan struggling. Antonio Jhuty scored 19 first-half points to keep Palmer in the game. Madewan found his form in the second half as the Griffins put up 54 points; Madewan with 28 of them in a 91-81 win.

Palmer then overcame a poor shooting first half to top No. 1 seed R.A. McMath Wildcats 80-66 with Madewan netting 27 points. Palmer earned seven threepointers and Burnett six in the first quarter of the final. The hot shooting continued for Palmer in the second as the Griffins pulled out to a 60-37 halftime lead. Madewan capped a brilliant tournament with a 35-point showing “proving he can produce in big games,” said Eberhardt. The Lower Mainland AA playoffs were set to begin Tuesday.

“HENDERSON� NEEDS A GOOD HOME WITH YOU!

“HENDERSON�, ID#289960, NEUTERED MALE, DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR CROSS, 2 YEARS Henderson is 2 years young and full of energy! He loves to play, jump, meow, eat and seek affection from his people. A busy household would be ideal for this active young man, so that he gets the attention and stimulation he needs to keep him happy. He is quite vocal, and will follow you around chatting about his day. You will need to keep an eye on this adventurous, curious cat near open doors, so that he does not see a chance to escape to the great wide open - after all, he was picked up as a stray in Chilliwack! If you are looking for a young, fun-loving cat to join your family, come and meet Henderson today!
