Sukhwant Dhillon photo A rare $200,000 Aston Martin DB9 Volante wound up underneath a white Mercedes sedan, after setting off a chain-reaction collision that knocked one vehicle into a ditch across the street, and left one person dead at the scene, and three others in either critical or serious condition.

Driver raced through red prior to deadly crash Imperial Paving flagger saw $200,000 Aston Martin DB9 going 200 km/h, then saw it crash into cars stopped at red light by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The licence plate on the luxury sports car a witness says was responsible for Wednesday’s deadly multi-vehicle pile-up on Westminster Highway at Knight Street spoke volumes: 007-KMP. The driver of the $200,000 Aston Martin DB9 Volante was driving much like fictional British superspy 007 when he ran one red light as he was westbound on Westminster Highway, narrowly missing a vehicle at No. 6 Road, before heading towards his fate a block to the west. And with Richmond Mounties saying just minutes after the collision that speed—and specifically kilometres per (KMP) hour—was a factor, one witness reached by The Richmond Review Thursday morning estimated the rare convert-

ible was going in the neighbourhood of 200 km/h when it set off a chain-collision, involving a white Mercedes Benz sedan, a Chrysler, and a Ford Escape, among other vehicles. The Chrysler, possibly a Pacifica, was hurtled some 100 metres into a ditch, its rear end completely caved in and left a smoking ruin. Vancouver’s Elizabeth Willis witnessed Wednesday afternoon’s crash, which occurred around 3:30 p.m. A flagger for Imperial Paving, Willis was part of a crew working on Westminster Highway, at No. 6 Road, a block east of the accident scene. “I heard a car going extremely fast, 200 km/h, right through a red light, almost T-boned another vehicle, went straight through...and hit the cars sitting at the red light,” she said, her voice breaking, as she walked on the scoured fourlane stretch of roadway that’s currently being repaved. “It was only the one vehicle, racing through. We don’t even know what kind of car it was, only that it was black.” Seconds later, after hearing what was apparently the Aston Martin’s “roaring engine,” she saw and heard the booming impact. “Devastating. I saw the cars flying up in the air, and there was

Martin van den Hemel photo The collision knocked one vehicle into a ditch across the street.

smoke, and I shut down the road immediately.” Within seconds, onlookers became Good Samaritans and sprang into action, helping out the victims. One man pulled a woman from the crumpled remains of the Mercedes, which wound up on top of the Aston Martin and was missing its entire trunk. Richmond photojournalist and Tandoori Raj Indian Restaurant owner Sukhwant Dhillon, was on his way home from his South Van-

couver eatery when he came upon the carnage, which he said looked a like a war movie. Dhillon works for The Link, an Indo-Canadian newspaper, and lives near the accident scene. Even before emergency crews arrived, he said two crash victims had already been pulled from their vehicles, and were lying on the ground, metal, plastic and glass debris strewn everywhere. He could see smoke coming from the Chrysler in the ditch, and said the collision must have been

high-speed to hurtle the vehicle such a distance. Dozens of people watched from the roadside as two people were taken into an air ambulance helicopter, and emergency crews rushed to extricate another victim from inside the Mercedes. But before that person could be removed, the air ambulance departed, and emergency crews placed a plastic tarp over the body. Richmond Mounties late Wednesday afternoon confirmed that one person was pronounced dead at the scene, and three others were either in serious or critical condition in hospital. Dhillon spoke with the stunned driver of one car, who said he was simply stopped at the red light when the collision occurred. Another victim was consoled by a paramedic as he pointed at the wreckage, and recounted what happened. No updates were available regarding the condition of the victims at The Review’s press time Thursday afternoon. Only about 10 Aston Martin DB9s are sold annually in Canada, and the vehicle involved in the crash was the model sold between 2008 and 2011, according to someone familiar with these vehicles.

Public consultations to date have focused on whether to build a bridge or new tunnel and possibly shift the alignment.

Questions hang over promise to pursue new Deas Island crossing by Jeff Nagel Black Press While the proposed replacement of the Massey Tunnel gets prominent play in the B.C. Liberals’ election platform, big question marks hang over exactly what will be built, where, and how it will be funded. Big signs on the approaches to to the tube remind motorists of the planning process quickly launched by Premier Christy Clark last fall, and on Tuesday, Liberal candidates in Richmond waved to drivers at the tunnel. Transportation Minister Mary Polak said the accelerated replacement of the tunnel would relieve Highway 99 congestion, enhance B.C.’s economy and make the province more competitive in Asia-Pacific trade. Public consultations to date have focused on whether to build a bridge or new tunnel and possibly shift the alignment.

Absent from the debate so far is any talk about whether tolls will be imposed to pay for what’s sure to be a $1-billion-plus project. Tolling is a sore point for drivers now paying to cross the Port Mann Bridge. If the Massey Tunnel replacement and badly needed new Pattullo Bridge are both also tolled, drivers wanting a free crossing would have to take the Alex Fraser Bridge. Critics say that would make a mockery of B.C.’s provincial tolling policy, which requires a reasonable free alternative to any newly tolled route. Asked recently if the new Massey crossing would be tolled, Clark said that’s undetermined and the province is just covering the planning costs so far. The Liberals have promised a referendum on new transit funding sources, such as a vehicle levy, but haven’t said if they’d also allow a vote on adding new tolls to replace bridges or tunnels that are the jurisdiction of the province, not TransLink. The B.C. NDP has said the Massey Tunnel replacement is not a top priority but they would continue the planning process.

but are shy on toll question B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins accused the Liberals of concocting the tunnel issue “out of thin air” as an election ploy. Pressed on how the B.C. Conservatives would pay for a new Deas or Pattullo crossing—both of which could be knocked out of service at any time by river erosion or a quake—Cummins denied it would be through tolls. “We’ve got to find money within our current budgets by spending smarter,” he said. “I don’t think putting tolls on bridges and taxing the average working guy is the way to go.” The bigger fear for farmland advocates is if a new bridge is built further upstream to line up with No. 8 Road in east Richmond. “It would be very destructive to the farmland in that area,” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said of the alternate alignment. The idea is understandably attractive to Port Metro Vancouver, he said. It owns the Gilmore Farm, which straddles No. 8 Road about where the north footings of a new bridge would go, meaning the port already has an ideally positioned

potential industrial site. Brodie said it “doesn’t take a rocket scientist” to see that No. 8 Road lines up neatly with Boundary Road in Vancouver, so a new crossing of the Fraser’s south arm on that alignment could add pressure for a North Arm crossing too, and perhaps industrialize the whole corridor. “It would be once again bisecting Richmond,” Brodie said. Transit advocates, meanwhile, see spending on a tunnel replacement mega-project as likely to come at the expense of more money for buses or SkyTrain extensions. “We still have the paradigm of having roads, tunnels and bridges in one category and transit in another,” said SFU City Program director Gordon Price, “with no connection to land use and shaping the growth of the region.” While blacktop politics may play well with voters, Price questions the assumption a bigger, new Deas crossing is needed, noting younger generations are driving less than their parents. Metro Vancouver planners, in their submission to the tunnel replacement process, argue it should not necessarily be the region’s top transportation priority, and if it is built, options like tolls should be considered so extra lanes don’t simply refill with traffic. “The region cannot build itself out of congestion solely through

expanding roadways,” they said. “Road pricing should be tested, not simply as a revenue source to pay off the construction and operating expenses, but to also manage existing and incremental private vehicle demand.” Metro also raises concerns about higher vehicle emissions, and potential damage to Burns Bog, Deas Island Regional Park and agricultural land. It says any new crossing should include pedestrian and cycling connections to the planned Experience the Fraser riverfront trail network. A new bridge instead of a tunnel could allow larger container ships to sail up the river to underused Fraser Surrey Docks. Metro planners recommend the port and province consider whether the proposed new Terminal 2 container port at Deltaport might be redundant if a new bridge unlocks the potential of the existing terminal upriver in Surrey.

UBC offers alternative voting test drive

Vote Early: May 8-11

Voters have a chance to test drive different voting systems to see how they might change the outcome of Tuesday’s provincial election. A UBC research project at votesbc.org will let voters anonymously cast ballots online using three different systems—the current first-past-the-post system, proportional representation and the single transferable vote. The site’s test results won’t affect the real election outcome, but the project team think it could revive debate on options for electoral change in B.C.

911 Awards say thanks to 11th annual gala celebrates police, fire, ambulance and coast guard employees, volunteers and Good Samaritans by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter William Easton could have just turned a blind eye to the young men who carried computer equipment onto his bus last summer. The Coast Mountain Bus Company driver had heard the broadcast descriptions of two men linked to the gunpoint robbery of a man, who had his cell phone, computer and cash taken. Easton took the initiative to delay the two men from leaving the bus at the next stop, pretending the back door was broken, as he called for help from police. He then kept an eye on the suspects until they disappeared into a nearby casino. His involvement made a significant contribution to the eventual apprehension of the pair, and the recovery of the victim’s stolen property and a replica firearm. While receiving the Community Safety Award of Valor at the 11th annual 911 Awards, held Tuesday night at River Rock Casino Resort, Easton said the pair described him as being a bad driver, for talking on his cell phone while driving the bus. Of course, they didn’t know he was talking to the authorities. So, when police arrived, and arrested the two men, holding a gun to their head, he got the last laugh. “It felt good,” he deadpanned, drawing laughs from the crowd of police, fire, ambulance and coast guard employees, volunteers and local Good Samaritans, as well local dignitaries, politicians and B.C. Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon.

EDITORIAL: There’s good reasons to vote Tuesday is election day in B.C. At some point in time Tuesday night, B.C. residents will have a good idea which direction the province will go in the next four years. Voting in a provincial election, which at one time was seen as vital by the vast majority of citizens, has fallen out of favour in recent times. In 1983, 70 per cent of the population voted, and earlier elections had an even higher turnout. In 2009, the turnout was just over 50 per cent. Yet provincial governments make a lot of decisions which affect our day-to-day lives. The impact is much greater on most people than federal government decisions. The province controls funding for education and health, the two most-used public services. It decides if new schools will be built, and which hospitals will be expanded. Through the health authorities, it determines which services are offered in which communities. The province determines the shape of transportation projects, and in the Lower Mainland, this is a particularly important task. While TransLink is responsible for transit, TransLink, like boards of education and health authorities, is a creature of the provincial government. It can decide to giveTransLink more powers, or it can

dissolve TransLink altogether. Municipal governments, similarly, are creatures of Victoria. While provincial governments have traditionally left municipalities on their own, for the most part, they exercise strong financial control over them — simply by not giving

them access to many streams of taxation. The province also has a big role to play in land use decisions, through agencies such as the Agricultural Land Commission and legislation such as the Right to Farm Act. Both have a major im-

pact on life in rural Langley — now and in the future. These are all important reasons to vote on Tuesday, or at advance polls which are open until Saturday. Our three MLAs ensure there’s a Richmond perspective to decisions made in Victoria.

ou can never cross the same stream twice.

As metaphors go, this one for the dynamic nature of the world never ceases to inspire. Things change. Humans change, cultures change, languages change, and climates change. Our world is changing and part of this new reality will be addressing the impacts of a changing climate, increasing energy prices, and a diminishing reliance on imported foods. Whenever I think about

food imports I get this vision of food zooming across the skies, seas and lands via planes, ships, and rail from one part of the globe to the next. The BC Food Self-Reliance Report estimates that British Columbians import about 70 per cent of their foods. Foreign sources account for most of our fruits, nuts, vegetables, cereals and fish. In 2007, 60 per cent of all food imports came from the United States and most of that came from California. Mexico (20%) and China (10%) also export fruits and vegetables to BC. Interestingly enough, we are pretty self-sufficient in our meat and dairy. The prices of these products may be higher south of the border. However, we can be assured of a higher quality product and a greater return going to our farmers. Changing climate will impact different places around the globe to varying degrees. With BC’s current over-reliance on the United States and California for much of our foods, climate change will have profound impacts on what we consume.

Water supply is the backbone of California’s agriculture. Changes in rainfall and snowpack are expected to reduce the amount of water available to farming. Combine this diminishing water supply with an increase in water demand from population growth and the situation begins to look dire. Over the last five years, California has experienced seasonal droughts of unprecedented intensity. The first indication of climate-related food insecurity is likely a lower availability of imported fruit, particularly over the winter months. This is a key factor, with many nutritionists recommending an increased consumption of fruits and vegetables for all populations. It is also likely that as climatic conditions worsen, there will be a global drive to reduce exports. Concurrently, prices will increase due to lower production, further reducing access to these foods. In our region, we produce a phenomenal amount of blueberries, strawberries, and cranberries that struggle to

remain competitive in our global food system. Areas like the Okanagan, the most productive fruitgrowing region is already water strapped and will be particularly vulnerable to changes in water availability and demand. The degree to which changes in American production can be addressed by fruit growing in BC is still unknown. In Richmond, we face a dual issue that will continue to worsen over the years. That is, an increase in precipitation over the winter and lower precipitation over the summer. This creates a dual problem of too much water over one part of the year and too little over another. Compounding the issue of decreasing agricultural production is a parallel issue of increasing energy prices. Fossil fuels are used extensively in our modern food system in the production of fertilizers and pesticides, on-farm vehicles, and transportation of foods. With higher energy prices, there will be an almost certain increase in food prices as the cost of transportation

rises. We are at a crossroads. Many people will wait for a technological silver bullet hoping that it will maintain the status quo. The world is changing and we must adapt to those changes. Part of this means proactively looking at where our food comes from and taking the steps necessary for self-reliance. Supporting local and regional farmers and food companies is one way that the public can get involved. Government and industry has a duty to reinvest in local agriculture, storage and processing, and markets. We can shape the future that we want for ourselves and our children by embracing change and facing it head on.

Better Grades Happier Kids

Liberals are running on a fact-free agenda Editor: The first victim in political campaigns, as in wartime, is truth. Nothing illustrates this better than a recent ad by my MLA, John Yap and Today’s BC Liberals: “The Choice is clear. Strong Economy. Secure Tomorrow.” Sorry, Mr. Yap, today’s Liberals are no different from the Old Liberals under Gordon Campbell. Deception is not only your party’s modus operandi, it is in your name. Just because you claim you are liberal does not mean you are. You and the Liberal Party are literally wolves in sheep’s clothing; a coalition comprised of lots of right wing conservatives (aka Social Credit), with a few token liberals thrown in so they could sell their political souls to gain power. Unlike real liberals, they are the party of Big Business, the ones that rips up union contracts for teachers and hospital employees, inflict a carbon tax on schools and hospitals so that free enterprise can get tax credits, and fund $9 million tax funded parties like the Bollywood Awards to woo the ethnic vote. They are the ones who

immediately after the last election when the Liberal Party stated that imposing the HST was “not on the radar,” brought in the Hated Sales Tax. And they waited until the last minute before this election to ditch the HST. The Liberal Party has recently shown it’s bending of the truth by spending $15 million of taxpayers’ money towards very blatant political advertising about the success of the Jobs Creation Plan; in reality that program was a total failure. Basically they are running on a fact-free agenda, ignoring their record. And anyone familiar with their education policy where funding does not keep up with inflation resulting in teacher lay-offs and vital programs for youth being cut makes the lie of Christy Clark’s Family First mantra so blatant. Returning to my local MLA, Mr. Yap is well aware of the secretive backroom plan created in the premier’s office to use more tax money to seduce the ethnic voters (aka as bribing ethnic voters) to vote Liberal. When that unethical strategy came to light, Mr. Yap had to fall

on his sword for his responsibility. Unfortunately, he didn’t fall on the blade quite enough. He resigned his cabinet post because of his admitted breach of ethics. Funny, he doesn’t feel he has to resign his MLA position for the same lack of ethics. And now my MLA for Steveston has the audacity to advertise that by voting Liberal, we will secure a strong economy and a secure tomorrow. Despite that rhetoric, the B.C. Liberals recent budget is not a balanced budget. For the next few years, they will continue to run a deficit. The Fairy Tale goes like this: If the Liquefied Natural Gas Plants are built in the far future and if the hypothetical market overseas buys our LNG, and if there isn’t another downturn in the market like 2008 and if pigs could fly, then maybe, just maybe in about 10 years, we might be debt free. It’s like relying on winning the Lotto 6/49 instead of saving for your retirement. Just because you say it’s so, doesn’t mean it is necessarily so. Eric Hanson Richmond

There’s more to leadership than photo-ops Editor: Nina Graham (featured in John Yap's campaign flyer) took issue with my letter published in the April 24 Richmond Review, but I think the point was missed. All I wanted to express was that some apparently misleading propaganda was put in my mailbox and I wanted the electorate to know about it. Ms. Graham states that while in office, John Yap has stood up to protect Steveston Harbour's viability. That is great, but did he also stand up to address the worst rate of child poverty in Canada? Leadership in the community is not just attending events and handing out novelty-sized cheques

to worthy causes. Those are called photo-ops. True leadership would be standing up to counter the party line by saying “Hey, this is not the right thing to do.”This could have been applied to the HST and how it was introduced, the B.C. Rail scandal, the convention centre costs, the ethnic outreach scandal and the gutting of a successful program for providing independent review of pharmaceuticals to appease the drug companies. Ms. Graham states that Mr. Yap is a decent man with a good heart. That may be true, but perhaps he is just hanging out with the wrong crowd. Alex Herring Richmond

Make Time for Learning This Summer! Summer is a fantastic time of year for students. Sleeping in, extended bedtimes, no homework - it’s a break from the regular routine. There’s that old saying: No more school, no more books... well, you know the rest. Seema Ahluwalia of Oxford Learning Centre believes it’s time to rethink that saying, especially the “no more books” part. Did you know that students who take a complete break from learning during the summer months could potentially lose up to 40% of their learning momentum? Research has proven this time and again. That’s why it’s so important to include education in your summer plans. During the past school year, did your child encounter any academic obstacles? If so, then summer is the perfect time to not only catch-up in those problem areas, but also to get ahead. Don’t exclude summer school from your summer planning because of any negative preconceptions you may have; summer school is an opportunity, not an obstacle. It offers a less strenuous learning environment and allows your child can get the individual attention that he or she may not get throughout the school year. Summer is an open expanse of time that’s perfect for working on trouble areas, catching up, getting

ahead, and building strong learning skills. When students keep learning all summer long, they are more than ready to learn when school begins again. Oxford Learning Centre has individualized summer programs for reading, writing, math, French, SAT preparation and study skills that help kids develop new thinking and learning habits while reinforcing and building existing academic skills. Their Little Readers program also runs throughout the summer and helps kids from age 3 to 6 to prepare for Kindergarten by teaching them reading and writing skills. Oxford offers a variety of fun-filled academic summer camps to suit every family’s needs. They have a choice of hourly, half-day and full-day programs that are all tailored to your child’s needs. Their flexible schedule also allows you to make time for outdoor camps and family vacations while ensuring that your child stays sharp all summer. Parents can contact Oxford Learning Centre at 604- 233-5566 for more information. They can also visit their office at 200 - 7380 Westminster Hwy (near Minoru Blvd) for wonderful tips and programs to help their kids get organized.

Ballots offer plenty of choice by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

R

ichmond residents will have plenty of choice on voting day Tuesday, as 19 candidates are running to fill three Richmond seats in the provincial legislature.

Election 2013

Candidates debate the issues Here’s a sample of some of the answers from candidates at Wednesday’s all-candidates meeting, which was organized by local social service agencies. On incorporating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender studies into school curriculum: •Nathaniel Lim, B.C. Conservatives (Richmond East): “We want to give more control to the parents. If the parents want this in their school, we want to give more rights to parents.” •Gian Sihota, NDP (Richmond East): “The BC NDP is very clear on human rights issues. We always stand up for every person’s human rights. That’s where we are so committed. Each person should be equally treated in the society.” •Linda Reid, Lib-

eral (Richmond East): “A strong curriculum is critical because it is about dignity. It is about human dignity. I believe very much that we need to support our family members, your family members, because we do not have the right to make that choice for anyone else.” On accountability of TransLink: •Jerome Dickey, Greens (RichmondSteveston): “I go to the hearings recently on the Massey tunnel replacement… I don’t see any presence from TransLink there, and I don’t see in the plans any clear indication that TransLink is a big piece of this. The most they’ve incorporated into this is an HOV lane… There needs to be co-operation.” •Carol Day, B.C. Conservatives (RichmondSteveston): “No one

been given the kind of standard of care and the funds to look after it.” •Scott Stewart, NDP (Richmond-Steveston): “The NDP are committed to equality. It’s our priority to improve health care and health care delivery in this province. We are going to improve health care to people who are living in their homes. This is for people with emotional issues, for mental issues, people with complex care issues. We’re going to try and keep people in their homes as long as they can.” •Teresa Wat, Liberal (Richmond Centre): “As a On supporting people caring society, I think the Advance Mayreally 8 - 11 government needs with mental health is-Voting: to look after those who sues and addictions: Advance Mayand 8 those - 11 are in need •Richard Lee, Ind. Voting: who are vulnerable. B.C. (Richmond Centre): Liberals are investing “I feel for the fact that record levels of funding mental health as a in mental health… Even health problem, as though we have done a disability, has not is going to argue that TransLink is a big disappointment, whether you ride the buses or you have to pay the taxes to pay for them. Why is it not working? Because we don’t know what’s going on… By sitting down, line-byline we can find out where the money’s being wasted.” •Ping Chan, B.C. Excalibur Party (Richmond East): “The current TransLink service is unacceptable. I live (on) River Road. I don’t have bus service, so I gotta walk… We have to change TransLink the way to serve people.”

really a good record, I think there’s still more that we can do. If I’m elected I will push for more funding for mental health patients.” On helping families with mentally challenged children: •Doug Perry, Greens (Richmond East): “Most people don’t recognize the needs of a family that’s trying to raise a child that’s mentally handicapped. With the livable minimum income they would have the (means) if they don’t

have a good income from their job. Besides that there’s a lot of other programs that have been cut over the last 15 to 20 years. In our platform there’s details of several specifics where we will have funding available.” •Nathaniel Lim, B.C. Conservatives (Richmond East): “With my work I actually deal with a lot of children or youth that are dealing with mental health. One thing we can actually do is have more outreach workers that will go to where the kids are when

they’re having issues, whether it’s psychosis or other mental health issues.” •John Yap, Liberal (Richmond-Steveston): “Since coming into government in 2001, the B.C. Liberals took a fresh approach to this area. Unlike the NDP when there was a patchwork approach to providing care to people with special needs, our government created Community Living B.C… It’s an important area, and if I’m re-elected I will continue to support the important work of CLBC.”

Election 2013 On funding for restorative justice programs: •Linda Reid, Liberal (Richmond East): “It absolutely changes lives. There are consequences to the actions young people take. We need as a society to believe that’s important and to imprint that on them when they’re young, because we don’t get a second shot at it. Childhood is just so long, adolescence is just so long.” •Carol Day, B.C. Conservatives (Richmond-Steveston): “Restorative justice is a success story, and yet rather than put money into it, (the Liberals) are taking money away from it. That’s why we need to sit down line-byline and understand where the money is going and redirect it to the correct areas.” •Richard Lee, Ind. (Richmond Centre): “In my two years working and living in Tuktoyaktuk (Northwest Territories), I saw restorative justice in action amongst the Inuit. So I know it works… So if I were

part of the assembly and the people agree with me, I would be supporting the party that proposes increased funding for restorative justice.” On addressing lack of funding for early intervention services: •Nathaniel Lim, B.C. Conservatives (Richmond East): “There’s many programs that we want in this community… If we don’t get our provincial finances straight, I don’t think we’re going to have money for anything else. The reason I joined was I want to fix this now, so we can have funding for programs like this and other social programs that we need. One of the things I’d like to see is an emergency shelter.” •Gian Sihota, NDP (Richmond East): “We have seen over the last 12 years all the cutbacks and how the community is hurting… So that’s become a priority. The choice is very clear in this election. Do we want more of

the same or do we want change for the better?” •Teresa Wat, Liberals (Richmond Centre): “Infant development is a very important issue that all of us should pay attention to, because all of us when we are married we will have children and we will have infants. We [want to] make sure they will have a good development. That’s why B.C. Liberals have been increasing investment in health care despite the difficult economic times.” On regulating gasoline prices: •Ping Chan, B.C. Excalibur Party (Richmond East): “Our taxes are (at an) all time high. This is getting ridiculous. There’s a fuel tax, carbon tax, all this nonsense, and we’re using it for no good reason. We should lower the taxes so we can stimulate the economy… We should be reasonable, not taxed to death.” Jerome Dickey, Greens (RichmondSteveston): “I think we

need to look at the bigger issue here with gas, and that is our reliance on fossil fuels… We have to provide more alternatives in our communities around transportation. That’s stabilizing funding for TransLink, provide other options. Car-sharing is growing rapidly, ride-sharing is another growing trend with young people, and cycling, walking in our communities.” Scott Stewart, NDP (RichmondSteveston): “We’re not going to put increased tax on gas. We’re not going to increase the carbon tax on gas like some of the parties have said they will… We’re going to see it’s properly spent, that it goes to green initiatives, that it goes to transit.”

Election 2013

Candidates debate parking fees at hospitals From Page 15 On parking fees at hospitals: •John Yap, Liberals (Richmond-Steveston): “How we fund our health care is primarily through allocation to the health authorities… They get a block of funds, and they, the experts, the people who are closest to delivering health care look at where to allocate the funds, including support services, including costs such as parking. This is an important issue, I understand it, but it is

something we delegate to the health authorities.” •Carol Day, B.C. Conservatives (Richmond-Steveston): “We have a system in place whereby MLAs make 50-some-odd votes a year, that’s it. About eight, 10 years ago, it was 150 votes in the house. Why is that? I’m thinking laziness. But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it’s just apathy. But whatever it is, when you’ve got a sick loved one in the hospital, the last thing you need is expensive parking fees.”

Doug Perry, Greens (Richmond East): I don’t know if the provincial government can control what hospitals charge for parking fees, but I do agree it seems unjust… The Green party doesn’t have something in our platform specifically for that. I don’t know if it’s really a provincial issue.” •British Columbians go to the polls on Tuesday, May 14. See richmondreview.com on Tuesday night for full coverage.

Mother’s Day A green Mother’s Day

A

n eco-friendly gift for Mom is a gift that keeps on giving. When you jot down your gift idea list, think about adding these “green” gifts: •Spend the day outdoors. Most moms cherish any gift from their children, whether lavish or simple. A nice, eco-friendly gift is to spend time together. Research local parks or hiking trails and plan a day where you both commune with nature. Or even head to the seaside for a relaxing day. Explore the landscape and be on the lookout for birds and washed up treasure from the sea. Plan to finish the day with a homemade, picnic lunch. •Make a basket of gardening gear. Garden plants and supplies are perhaps the greenest gifts to give Mom. Plants are so plentiful and varied that there are bound to be ideal flowers or greenery for every mother's tastes. Compile different gardening essentials, such as seeds or seedlings, organic soil mix, mulch, all-natural compost, and a few different planting containers. You can also include gardening gloves and ergonomic tools made of recycled materials. Finish the gift with the inclusion of a book that describes different garden designs. •Purchase eco-friendly kitchen items. It may be a major faux pas to give Mom an appliance or a new vacuum for Mother's Day. However, if your mother is an avid cook or baker, she may appreciate some new mixing bowls or utensils made from recycled materials. If Mom is the consummate entertainer, get her new glass tumblers and sipping straws made from recycled glass. They are perfect for serving cocktails and outdoor entertaining. •Pamper mom with organic products. What mom doesn't enjoy a little pampering from time to time? You can treat your mother to a spa experience at home by assembling a basket full of organic shampoo, conditioner, massage oils, bath salts, and any other organic spa items you can find.

River Rock records solid start to 2013 Revenue continues to rise at Richmond casino resort by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Richmond’s River Rock Casino Resort enjoyed a strong start to 2013 while revenues dropped 13 per cent at a neighbouring facility, financial statements showed Wednesday. River Rock recorded first quarter earnings of $42.5 million—up one per cent from the same period in 2012. Revenues at the smaller Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam—27 kilometres away—were just $9.7 million, down from $11.1 million in 2012.

No evidence of glut of unoccupied condos

Both casinos are owned by Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, a publicly-traded company. “River Rock had yet another strong quarter, experiencing meaningful increases in both table drop and slot coin-in,” said Rod Baker, Great Canadian’s president and chief executive officer, in a news release. Baker suggested Boulevard’s drop was caused by weakened economic conditions and disruption caused by highway construction, which included intermittent road closures affecting access to the property. Total revenues for Great Canadian were $100.5 million in the first quarter—a two per cent drop from the same period last year. The City of Richmond receives 10 per cent of net gaming revenue from River Rock. City officials had a record take last year, collecting $15,585,000 for city coffers in 2012.

by Jeff Nagel Black Press Fears that foreign buyers and other temporary residents are snapping up an abnormal share of Metro Vancouver condos aren’t borne out by statistics, according to a new analysis. Urban Futures researchers examined 2011 Census data and found just 0.8 per cent of all homes in the Metro region and 1.4 per cent of apartments are occupied by foreign or temporary residents. Vancouver and West Vancouver were above average at just under two per cent, while other larger cities in the region had fewer foreign or temporary apartment dwellers, including Richmond at 1.3 per cent,

Burnaby at 1.1 per cent and Surrey at 0.4 per cent. There had been media reports earlier this year that up to a quarter of condos in certain parts of downtown Vancouver are either unoccupied or occupied by non-residents, prompting renewed concern that wealthy foreign investors are parking money here. Some observers warned of the rise of ghost neighbourhoods that look dense but don’t have enough active residents to create a vibrant community. Urban Futures found 6.2 per cent of Metro apartments were unoccupied —below the national average—and said there’s no basis to conclude that’s excessive.

I

t’s a busy month for an East Coast musician known for her countryfolk flavour.

Sahara Jane is on a monthlong tour that’s taking her from Calgary to the Gulf Islands—with a stop in Steveston in the middle. The Nova Scotia singer-songwriter will play the Steveston Folk Guild May 16. The guild’s small venue at Britannia Heritage Shipyard fits with other intimate spots she’s playing, including her show before Steveston: the Cedar Creek Cafe in Winlaw, B.C., an unincorporated village in the Slocan Valley with a population of 294. Spreading her music around B.C.—and around the world—is

part of who Jane is. The musician can be found playing original folk music with her band in India, playing classical Indian sarangi at galleries in Canada and singing jazz standards at hotel clubs in China. Her upbringing, in a culturally diverse and musical family, has made her comfortable in taking her music around the globe. Her greatest joy is songwriting and collaborating with other musicians. She began touring her original music as a teenager with her sister Kamila. The pair produced two albums and toured Canada’s folk venues and festivals together, including the Steveston Folk Guild several years ago. She went on to study fine arts at York University in Toronto, where she made connections to follow her dream of learning Indian music in Mumbai. In recent years, Jane has been performing in China, India, France and the Netherlands. She describes the music of her latest album, Lonesome Sky, as altcountry and reflecting her roots in Nova Scotia’s music scene. “Lonesome Sky is a folk album with elements of country, jazz and blues, highlighted by the

great musicians who joined me on this project,” the musician writes on her website. “Ariana Nasr makes it shine with her solos on violin, clarinet, soprano saxophone and also adds backup vocals. Andy Flinn fills it out with his groovy bass and lead guitar and my rhythm hero Ken Shorley plays drum kit and percussion.” Others are also featured on the album, including Jamie Loughead, who will join Jane at the Steveston Folk Guild show with rhythmic bass and vocal harmonies. Jane boasts an easy command of the guitar and strong songwriting and arranging abilities. Her show promises to be an energetic concert is a mix of styles, instruments and stories.

New garden opens in Steveston

T

he Steveston Community Society will celebrated the opening of the Steveston Educational Garden on Sunday, May 5.

Built in Steveston Community Park, east of the Martial Arts Centre, the garden isn't a traditional community garden with rentable plots. Instead it will be home to garden programs, workshops, special events and learning op-

portunities for children. Locals planted the seed for the garden a few years ago, and with the support of a federal grant and the city, formal plans sprouted last fall. Volunteers helped turn the sod and the garden began to take shape this spring. Accessibility is key to the project. Children, adults and seniors of all levels of abilities will be able to freely move around. Raised planters of varying

heights and garden boxes circled by bench seating will give gardeners comfort. Other elements include a shed, built with a roof similar to the adjacent Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, future fruit trees and plans for a natural amphitheatre. Volunteers interested in assisting with the garden are invited to e-mail edugarden@ stevestoncommunitysociety. com.

Patient Jean Rouday gives forward to Richmond Hospital

The Pulse of Richmond Hospital Natalie D. Meixner

W

e are always inspired by the work of Richmond Hospital’s health professionals.

When Jean Rouday came to the Foundation with a donation, we were happy to hear that Richmond Hospital’s medical teams were able to help her make a full recovery after she was diagnosed with cancer. Jean told us she looked at her donation not as giving back, but as giving forward—so patients can benefit from improvements made to our

hospital in the future. This is her story: “My head was throbbing, my ears were pounding, and I was vomiting. I’d just returned from working up in the mountains so I thought I was adjusting to the change in altitude. I took some painkillers and carried on. “My husband, Mike, finally convinced me to go to our local hospital in Delta. The doctors found that I was bleeding internally. I thought that was the extent of the bad news, until I heard the unthinkable words: ‘Jean, you have cancer.’ “I had a 4.5 cm malignant tumour in my stomach. The kind of acute surgery I needed isn’t available in where I live in Delta, so I didn’t know where to turn. I even considered going to the United States for the procedure. “But before I made any travel plans, my doctor had some welcomed news, ‘I know Dr. Sharadh

Sampath at Richmond Hospital. He and the surgical team there will take good care of you.’ “When I met Dr. Sampath, Head of the Department of Surgery at Richmond Hospital, I had all the reassurance I needed. After the examination, he actually sat with me and comforted me until I had absorbed the further news about my situation and what the surgery would be like. It was a small gesture of support, but it made such a big difference. “As Mike brought me to Richmond Hospital for my surgery, we made a pact. He had lost his first wife to cancer, and we weren’t going to let it happen again. We were determined to get through this together. “From the first day that Dr. Sampath met with me, to the six days I spent recovering at Richmond Hospital, I felt so well looked after. The instruments used for my surgery were made

possible because of donations—donors help give surgeons like Dr. Sampath up-to-date surgical equipment he needs to save lives like mine. I’m here today in part due to the community’s generosity. “That realization prompted me to make a donation of my own to support the surgical teams at Richmond Hospital. I don’t look at it as giving back—I look at it as giving forward.” Watch for Jean’s story in your mailbox this spring. If you did not receive your copy and would like to learn more, or if you’d like to donate to Richmond Hospital Foundation, please call 604-244-5252, or visit our website at www.richmondhospital foundation.com. We welcome your donation!

Members vote to rein in board pay at Coast Capital by Jeff Nagel

tors get more than $70,000 after meeting fees and committee chair fees are added. “We take to heart what our members have told us,” Coast Capital governance committee chair Glenn Wong said. “They have said they want to approve the amount of compensation directors receive.” A member panel will be struck to advise on potential changes to director compensation to take to a new vote. Wong said the changes already agreed to reduce total board compensation by $130,000 or 18 per cent. The $720,000 in total pay to the Coast Capital board last year was nearly twice as much as Vancity Credit Union paid its board in 2011. Coast Capital is Canada’s largest credit union by membership, with $14.6 billion in assets and 504,000 members at 50 branches in Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island.

Black Press Coast Capital Savings members have wrested back control over how much money the credit union pays its board of directors. A nearly 80 per cent vote by members at an April 30 annual general meeting is expected to lead to a new membership vote in 2014 on changes to board pay levels. It follows a grassroots campaign led by Surrey resident Phil Embley, who argued the remuneration levels were far higher than at other credit unions in Canada. The board agreed to cut chair Bill Wellburn’s retainer from $76,500 to $65,000. Last year he received $157,000 after $1,000-per-meeting fees were added. The Surrey-headquartered credit union has also frozen a recommended increase in the base retainer of directors from $25,500 to $29,500. Some direc-

Black Press files Hospital construction and operation has moved to public-private partnerships under the B.C. Liberals. The NDP wants to change that.

Election issue: health care privatization by Tom Fletcher Black Press NDP leader Adrian Dix has promised to repeal the remainder of Bill 29, the legislation that cut wages 15 per cent and allowed contracting out of health support services early in the B.C. Liberal term of government. Parts of that legislation were struck down in a 2007 ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada, and the government was forced to pay compensation and consult with unions before any further contracting out of services. In a pre-campaign interview with Guardian, the Hospital Employees’

Union magazine, Dix made no specific commitments. “We are going to need to improve and strengthen the public role if we are going to continue to provide a high level of service, given the federal cuts that are coming to health care in 2014-15,” Dix told the HEU publication. They’re not really cuts. After a string of sixper-cent increases, the growth of health care transfers is capped at four per cent starting next year. After signing a series of “net zero” contracts with various public service unions in the past year, the B.C. Liberals tabled an election budget pro-

posing to hold health spending growth to two per cent this year. In 2008, the B.C. Liberal government passed amendments to comply with the court ruling that collective bargaining rights are constitutionally protected. The ruling didn’t reverse pay cuts, but ordered payment of $80 million in compensation and retraining, and required negotiations before any further contracting out of health care jobs. Judy Darcy, then secretary-business manager of the HEU and now the NDP’s candidate in New Westminster, said at the time that the legislation allowed the government

and the union to “move on and build some kind of a partnership.” Platform highlights: • The B.C. Liberals emphasize their legislative change to allow Licensed Practical Nurses to leave the HEU and join the B.C. Nurses’ Union. The party wants to “partner with hospice societies” to double the number of hospice beds by 2020. • The B.C. NDP distances itself from publicprivate partnerships to build and run hospitals. It promises to “accelerate” Surrey Memorial Hospital’s critical care expansion “as a public project,” and Dix has said 30-year contracts are too long for health care facilities. • The B.C. Conservative platform criticizes the B.C. Liberals for spending less than the national average on health care, and for raising Medical Services Plan premiums. Party leader John Cummins has joined the B.C. Liberals and NDP in promising an expansion for the 63-year-old Penticton Regional Hospital. • The B.C. Green Party platform promises to “support development of co-ops and social enterprises for the provision of communitybased health, social and education services.” It also wants to expand MSP coverage for chiropractic, physiotherapy, eye exams and massage therapy, and impose a junk food tax.

ON THE PURCHASE OF QUALIFYING KITCHENAID® MAJOR APPLIANCES*.

The birdies, the barbeques and the backyard gardens have all sprung to life in a big way, with our recent return to sunny weather.

It seems like everyone and his dog is out there planting veggies, cutting flowers and taking full advantage of a long-awaited spring. For those who are short on time but big on gardens there’s a handy book called Gardening Shortcuts: Shameless shortcuts, tips, and tricks for a

SAVE THE TAX EVENT

great garden super-fast! by Jenny Hendy. The author divides the book into helpful sections including Relaxed Patios, Beautiful Borders, Smart Features (which includes things like sculptures, pebbles, decorating fences, etc.) Grow it, Eat it, Better Boundaries, Welcoming Wildlife and Easy Care. Each chapter contains a list of items you’ll need, step-by-step instructions on how to prepare, position and plant each item, and advice on watering and other important facts. With loads of pictures, this one is a must-read for urban gardeners. If you like to eat what you grow, then check out The Complete Kitchen

Garden by Ellen Ecker Ogden. This unique book focuses primarily on garden designs and recipes using the things you grow; however the tips for actual growing are a little thin. With colour diagrams of garden designs suited to particular kinds of seasonal produce, this book is for people who have a fair bit of space to play with. An interesting mix of gardening and cooking, this book will bring out the artist in the gardener. For those of us with black thumbs and limited outdoor space, barbequing can have more appeal. This next book – Rao’s on the Grill: Perfectly Simple Italian

Recipes from My Family to Yours by Frank Pellegrino Jr. – is for the more adventurous griller. Using the barbeque to cook things like Spaghetti with Crab and Heirloom Tomato or Linguine and Clam Zuppa, the author transforms tradition indoor dishes by moving them outside onto the grill and adding that certain smokiness to the taste. He even has a recipe for pizza cooked on the grill! Based on the East Harlem restaurant of the same name (Rao’s) these recipes will have you drooling in no time. Filled with luscious food close-ups, this almost fits the category of food porn (but in a wholesome way).

Cooking Light Way to Cook: Grilling takes a healthy approach and combines traditional stovetop cooking with grilling. With unusual recipes like Grilled Romaine with Creamy Herb Dressing, Sweet PotatoPecan Burgers with Caramelized Onions, and Chimichurri Halibut Tacos, this book serves up easy to understand instructions with great pictures. There are loads of traditional recipes too, for those who aren’t quite so adventurous. Shelley Civkin is with Richmond Public Library.

In the new work, playwright Minh Ly tackles the taboo subject of homosexuality in cultural communities. It’s a heartbreaking story of two parents struggling to come to terms with their son’s sexuality in the wake of his death. The story will be brought to life by a local cast, including Richmond’s own Linda Leong Sum (The Forbidden Phoenix, Red Letters), veteran actor and former Vancouver city councillor B.C. Lee, and Jessie Award winner Brian Sutton. The reading is Thursday, May 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the cultural centre’s Performance Hall. It’s being presented as part of Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre’s new play development series. Tickets to the reading are free, but must be reserved by e-mailing tickets@vact.ca.

Fire on Ice supports Project Emily Partial proceeds from charity hockey game being donated to volunteer effort by Don Fennell Sports Editor

P

articipants in a charity hockey game played Saturday at the Richmond Ice Centre are showing their community spirit—inspired by an article in The Richmond Review.

After reading the story “Emily appeals for help” in the May 2 edition of the newspaper, a team representing the Richmond Firefighters—buoyed by local Western Hockey Leaguers Brayden Low and Carter Popoff and B.C. Hockey League player Turner Popoff—will be donating half of the $4,500 raised during the game to Project Emily. Ashton Service Group owner Brian Williams is behind Project Emily, which is appealing for community support to build a new accessible home in Richmond for the de Boer family. On Feb. 14, 2011 a surgical attempt to correct a spine curvature left Emily de Boer, an active and athletic Lord Byng elementary student, a paraplegic. The generous gesture is an example of exactly what event organizer Erick Cronier

hoped for when he helped to create For Others last year. For Others is a registered Canadian charitable organization committed to helping other organizations raise funds through different events and functions. Its website states: “Our specialty is to use the game of hockey as a catalyst to bring the community of Richmond together. By supporting local groups, we can provide the means for young athletes to flourish.” Funds from last weekend’s game, between the Firefighters and the Richmond Warriors junior development team, were generated through a $20 donation to a pub night at Stanley’s Bar and Grill, support from sponsors and a silent auction, raffles prizes and a 50/50 draw. While the idea for the game originated with Cronier, he said it wouldn’t have been possible with the support of many other volunteers including Warriors’ coach Steve Robinson and manager Stacey Okino, Richmond firefighters Todd Stockdale and Kyle Tait and Heather Yu, Blake Powell and Greg Umback of the For Others society.

Daniel Tait (Warriors), Fred Klomp (captain/battalion chief of Richmond Firefighters), Terry Hansen (captain of Richmond Firefighters) and Todd Stockdale (Richmond Firefighter) gather for the ceremoinal puck drop prior to Saturday’s charity hockey game at the Richmond Ice Centre.

The Richmond Firefighters and Richmond Warriors development team shared the spirit of sport and community last weekend at the Richmond Ice Centre.

Richmond bids for 2016 adult hockey world cup More than $13 million was generated for local economy at 2012 event held in Sault Ste. Marie by Don Fennell Sports Editor Richmond is one of four finalists to host the 2016 Canadian Adult Recreation Hockey Association World Cup.

“We are very excited to be shortlisted. Over 30 cities expressed interest in hosting the event,” said Jennifer Scott, coordinator of Richmond sport hosting and high performance.

Also in contention are Quebec City, Saint John, N.B., and Windsor, Ont. This event is commonly referred to as the “Olympics of Rec Hockey” as its held every four years in a

Canadian city, with Sault Ste. Marie hosting in 2012. This is the world’s largest international adult recreation hockey tournament with over 3,000 athletes from 15 counties competing in

the 10 day event, said Scott. Scott said 166 teams from 15 countries competed in the 2012 World Cup, which generated an economic impact of over $13 million for the host

city. “Should Richmond be awarded the 2016 World Cup, we anticipate a greater economic impact because the city’s ample accommodation can house more

teams. The host city also benefits from the media exposure, community engagement and legacy initiatives,” she said. The winning bid will be announced May 27.

BUILDING A BETTER AIRPORT THIS MONTH, WE ARE PLEASED TO SHARE WITH YOU HIGHLIGHTS FROM VANCOUVER AIRPORT AUTHORITY’S 2012 ANNUAL AND SUSTAINABILITY REPORT In the 20 years since its transfer from federal control to a community-based organization, Vancouver International Airport has become much more than a transit point through which passengers move. YVR is a community gathering place, a powerful economic generator, a hub of passenger-friendly innovation, a centre of excellence in customer care and even a destination unto itself. It is also a gateway, thanks to connections with 122 global destinations, 68 airline partners and the 17.6 million passengers who travelled through YVR in 2012. YVR was recently named Best Airport in North America by the prestigious Skytrax World Airport awards, an accolade we will work hard to earn again as we continue with our 10-year, $1.8-billion strategy to build a better YVR. These pages provide a snapshot of the activities and milestones we achieved in 2012.

Katie Sherlock and the Richmond Islanders 92/93 Senior B women’s fastball team achieved a rare feat Tuesday in the Fraser Delta league. Playing second base, Sherlock helped to turned a trio of grounders into three double plays as the Islanders defeated rival South Delta Invaders 17-2 at London Field. Janessa Murao was at first base for two of the double plays, and Victoria Groff to help complete the first double play.

Alex Lowe, the Islanders’ super utility player who was playing third base during the game, paced the Islanders’ offence with an insidethe-park homer. And Murao narrowly missed earning the cycle with a single, double and triple. Starter Julia Badock, who threw the first three innings before making way for Emily Agawa, shared the pitching. Earlier in the evening, the Islanders (3-0-1 on the season) tied Richmond’s 92 Islanders 4-4; the latter earning the tie in the top of the sixth inning.

But with stainless steel barbecues ranging in price from $400 to $1,200 or more, that can be a pricey proposition. But the team at Savannah Heating Products, at 10011091 Bridgeport Rd., just east of Shell, is convinced once locals sample what the Big Green Egg grill is capable of creating, they won’t ever turn back. From smoking steaks to tender perfection, to baking pizzas to delightful crustiness, to grilling up succulent burgers, flakey fish or roasting poultry, the Egg excels at being versatile.

And as far as clean-up goes, the heat burns up any grease build-up, and it’s ready to be used in as little as 10 minutes. With a reputation as the world’s best smoker and grill earned since 1974, the Big Green Egg is also an oven capable of baking bread, pizza, cookies, cakes

Bantam AA Chuckers off to sizzling start by Don Fennell Sports Editor An off-season dedicated to improving their skills is paying dividends for Richmond City Baseball’s Bantam AA Chuckers. At the halfway point of the spring season, the Chuckers sit second in the 13-team U15 league with a 7-2 record, just back of first-place Surrey which has two more wins but has played two more games. “All of our guys worked hard in the off-season (joining forces with their Bantam AAA clubmates in a program directed by AAA skipper Alex Klenman) and it is showing,” said Bantam AA head coach Cameron Frick. “Our main strength is definitely our pitching, and our hitting is starting to come around.” In Alex McRae, Devin Patterson, Chris Cook and Christian Deane, the Chuckers boast four starting pitchers that Frick believes could all be No. 1 starters on most teams. McRae is considered the ace of the staff compiling just a 1.09 earned-run average in his first four starts. Rookie Patterson, a New Westminster import, is one of the hardest throwers in the league and has showed this allowing a combined four hits in his first four starts. Cook, a Richmond Peewee AAA product, has shown that he can log some major innings on the mound and typically bats third in the order for the Chuckers. Deane, from North Delta,

Richmond City Baseball’s Bantam AA Chuckers currently sit second in their 13-team division.

has solidified himself as the back-end of the pitching staff which also brings a power bat to the middle of the lineup. Finally, Laird Moore has solidified himself as the closer. He has the ability to come in and not only throw hard, but

throw strikes as well, said Frick, who also has Kallan Collet, Joseph O’Krafka, Jordan Moffat and Jason Zhou in the fold to log some innings. Catcher Taiki Matsunuma, who Frick said is “hands down our most im-

proved player at this point” is the main signal caller, while Josh Berenbaum will also see some action behind the plate. Deane and Robinson will handle the hot corner (third base). One of two returning AA players

from last season, Robinson missed the first few weeks of the season due to injury but is expected to be a key offensive contributor from the middle of the lineup. See Page 44

’Chatz’ spirit contagious From Page 43

Kallan Collet, Joseph O’Krafka and Berenbaum will continue to rotate in and out of the middle infield and are expected to be high on-base percentage players as the first and second batters in the order. All three are sound defensively , with rookies Collet and Berenbaum also being groomed to form the middle infield of the AAA team next season. Lefty Jordan Moffat is handling first base while also being called upon to pitch against team’s top left-handed hitters. The Chuckers’ outfield is patrolled by rookies Alex Dawson and Jason Zhou and returning player Moore. All three can hit for power and are threats each time they come to the plate. McRae, Patterson and Cook will also see time in the outfield when not on the mound. Frick’s confidence also stems from working in a strong support

staff featuring Jon Fenn and Steve Chatzipiros. “Jon has done a great job working mainly with the development of our outfielders and catchers and Chatz may be the best motivator I have ever seen. He was my coach when I played Bantam AAA in 2008 and the way he makes the guys itch to get on the field every day is just amazing,” said Frick. The Chuckers’ great start was highlighted last weekend when they won the Kelowna Spring Classic with a 8-6 win over Vancouver. In the final game Christian Deane hit two home runs, one to tie the game at six and another to put Richmond up 8-6. Cook and Moore shared the mound duties and Deane was named player of the game. Moore and Matsunuma were named tournament coMVPs and were also selected to the tournament all-star team alongside McRae, Collet and Deane.

Talent pool runs deep in house level softball by Don Fennell

catching chores.

Sports Editor

W

hile the Richmond Girls’ Softball Association’s Islander rep program is widely known as one of the best in the province, its grassroots house level program is no slouch either with a deep talent pool and a focus on keeping players in the game.

Early in the 2013 campaign, here’s how several of the teams are shaping up.

U18 Attitude: Though his team consists primarily of players in their first season at the under-18 age group, coach Terry Ploquin is still hoping they can finish in the top eight in the division and make a fifth consecutive trip to the provincial championships. In 2012, Attitude lost only once in league and tournament play and placed sixth at the under-16 provincials. This season they’re again led by 10 returning players boosted by three new additions adding depth to key positions. “The team has enjoyed success over the years because of everyone’s contribution,” said Ploquin. “All players have become more comfortable in their role over the years and the new additions to the team have fit in well. It’s like they’ve always been there.” U16 Panthers: Under the tutelage of head coach John Doyle, the Panthers are coming off a 4-0 showing at last weekend’s Icebreaker which improved their overall salon record to 13 wins without a loss. In that span they’ve scored 171 runs and allowed only 31. “This is one of the best teams I’ve had the pleasure of coaching,” said Doyle. The Panthers also had an impressive 2012 campaign in which, despite having only one pitcher—Caitlin Hanley—were able to win more than three quarters of their games. Almost every player helped by pitching an inning or two when needed and were able to succeed because of the team’s strong defensive skills. This year, Priya Narsaiya and Megan Baxter are sharing the pitching duties with former Islanders Sophia Koutsandreas and Nicole Welsh splitting the

U16 Tigers: Coach Michael Kidd anticipates the second-year Tigers will be competitive in all their games this season, but his emphasis is on promoting participation and playing for each other. With a core of skilled players who’ve been with the team for four seasons and, the Tigers boast two strong pitchers in Angela Guo and Jordan Kidd and an experienced catching tandem of Hailey Fowler and Skye McNeil. Marissa Sasaki is strong at second base and a top hitter. Carolina Judkowicz is always near among the team’s leaders in hits and RBI’s, while Hanna Close keeps the defence honest with her power hitting. U16 Strykers: A first-year team in the under-16 division, the Strykers’ goal is to place in the top three in each of its tournaments this season. Coach Praveen Johal says pitching will be particularly important and is hoping the combination of four on staff will get the job done. Last season, the Strykers placed sixth in the under-14 provincials and won there medals in three in-season tournaments. U14 Bulldogs: Coach George Head hopes to lead the Bulldogs to another a provincial championship, which the team achieved two seasons back going 2-2 at the under-12 B.C. finals in Kamloops. “We want to try to develop skills and team spirit while having fun,” says Head. Losing its main pitcher Maddie Pugh to a higher division, the Bulldogs will look to an all-rookie staff featuring twins Rachel and Mariah Merrell with Erika Paskie and Taylor Rebiffe, the latter who as the lead-off batter sports an .800 on-based percentage. The infield includes Emily Head, Samantha Gazely, Maria Barr and Shannon Biancafiore while Courtney Biancafiore, Maria Barr, Evelyn Louth and Alison Condor have proven to be consistently effective at the plate. U12 Super Stallions: “Fun, learning new skills for a lifetime of physical literacy, and meeting new friends.” That’s what Super Stallions’ coach Bob Fedoruk is emphasizing for his under-12 team this season.

Richmond wins Provincial B Cup The Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial Cup, in memory of a long standing BC Soccer board member, has been awarded to the Richmond Soccer Association. Stew MacPherson, chair of the local organizing committee said, “Richmond Soccer is thrilled to, be the hosts of the 2014 Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial B Cup. We welcome teams from across the Province to experience

our Richmond Hospitality. We have hosted many events over the years and each one we strive to make better than the last.” The primary match venues for this event will be Hugh Boyd and Minoru Oval. BC Soccer Youth Competitions Chair Don Dancey said “We had a very tough decision to make this year as we received several high quality bids. We try to take into account history, where our

Provincial Cups have been held in previous years, the facilities, and accommodations in the area, amongst many other factors that we consider when choosing a host. “I firmly believe in each one of these host organizations and have no doubt they will put on an excellent event and showcase youth soccer within their own communities,” he said.

Ask a Pro Renovation Seminar + Expo to take place on May 16

GVHBA to hold renovation seminar The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association will hold its popular Ask a Pro Renovation Seminar + Expo on May 16 at the Croatian Cultural Centre in Vancouver. “Home renovation continues to be popular and there is no shortage of fly-by-night operators taking advantage of trusting homeowners,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Dealing in the cash-only underground economy to avoid tax, rather than working with a professional renovator, exposes homeowners to liability issues and close scrutiny from municipal bylaw officials, provincial safety authorities and others.” Participants will learn about the

stages of the renovation process, including finding a renovator, permits and design. Presenters include renovators, a lawyer, a finance expert and a municipal building official. The exhibition area will be open between 5:30 and 7:30 to allow homeowners to speak with the more than 30 experts in attendance beforehand, and then the seminar will follow from 7:30 to 9. Admission is free, but homeowners are asked to pre-register and bring a food item for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. To register, visit www.gvhba.org, email signmeup@ gvhba.org or call 778-565-4288.

Chilliwack retirement living

Retire in style at Englewood Courtyard By Kerry Vital

Resort-style retirement living has come to Chilliwack at Englewood Courtyard. With amenities right on-site and elegant homes that are perfect for downsizers, it’s not hard to see why the project is already so popular. “We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen. “This is the place you’re looking for if you want a sense of community. You don’t always see that anymore.” Englewood Courtyard is part of a master-planned community just for adults over the age of 45 called Englewood Village. Residents will find leisure activities, shopping, entertainment and restaurants close by; outdoor activities are particularly easy to find at Englewood Courtyard, with its close proximity to Cultus Lake and Chilliwack Lake. Among the amenities on-site is a parking lot for RVs and Club Englewood, a 2,500 square-foot clubhouse with an exercise area, social lounge, kitchen, reflecting pond and a spa. You can also enjoy a patio barbecue area, bocce courts, community garden and a dog park, Virtanen says.

We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen.

Chilliwack has long been a popular place for Lower Mainland retirees due to its lower real estate prices, beautiful scenery and relaxing atmosphere, so it comes as no surprise that buyers have been very interested in purchasing at Englewood Courtyard. Virtanen notes that she often hears buyers saying the good value, size of the homes and great design are the reasons they are interested in the project, along with the simply amazing views of the local mountains and rural surroundings. The first phase is currently on sale, with 40 one- and two-bedroom condominium residences ranging from 879 to 1,400 square feet in a variety of floorplans. This phase of Englewood Courtyard will be the first five-storey wood frame building in Chilliwack, and will be followed by two four-storey

buildings in the later phases. Those concerned about sound travelling between the condos will find peace of mind in knowing that there will be plenty of sound reduction between each home. The residences themselves are spacious and open, and are built with West Coast-style architecture that includes glass railings and plenty of windows to let the light pour in. Each home features nine to 12-foot vaulted ceilings, laminate flooring, maple shaker-style cabinetry, granite countertops and a gas fireplace, among other beautiful features. Airconditioning for those hot summer months is also included, along with underground parking for your convenience. The condos will be built using SAFERhome standards that allow you to age-in-place, so you won’t have to worry about moving again in your golden years. If you’re in the mood for a little bit of the outdoors, you can relax on your own covered balcony or private terrace. Homes at Englewood Courtyard start at $184,900. For more information, visit www.englewoodcourtyard.ca, call 604-824-8232, or visit the presentation centre at 45750 Keith Wilson Road, Chilliwack. The presentation centre is open between 12 and 4 every day.

The homes at Englewood Courtyard feature beautiful views over Chilliwack, along with gourmet kitchens, covered balconies or patios, spacious floorplans and plenty of natural light.

It is with much sadness that we announce our beloved mother Evelyn Mary MacDonald passed away peacefully, on Monday, April 15, 2013 in Saanich, BC. Mom was born in New Westminster, BC, the daughter of Andrew and Lillian Martin (nee Dean). She spoke often of her childhood in Vancouver were she was a member of the BC provincial recreation program (Pro Rec). Mom was a very active member of this hiking and skiing group and became an expert woods woman hiking and skiing in the North Shore Mountains (Seymour, Cypress, Hemlock and Grouse). Mom married the love of her life, Elmer Ronald MacDonald in March 1942 just before he was mobilized for WWII and sent overseas. After the war Mom and Dad first settled into the Grandview area of Vancouver and later moved to Richmond, BC, in 1958. During this time Mom was a Girl Guide Leader in both Grandview and Richmond and shared her extensive knowledge of the woods with many young guiders. Mom also became a member of Branch #177 of the Royal Canadian Legion and served on their hospital visitation committee as well as their executive. She also served as president of the Connaught Figure Skating Club in Richmond and designed and bought supplies for all of the yearly pageant costumes. She read avidly and was a very accomplished needle worker and costume designer. After Dad’s retirement, Mom and Dad travelled extensively in Europe, the Caribbean and the South Pacific satisfying a long held dream of them both. Mom is predeceased by her husband Elmer in 2008 and though our hearts are heavy with her passing we take comfort in knowing she is now reunited with him. She is also predeceased by her only brother Henry (Harry) Martin. Mom was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, mother-in-law and friend. She will be remembered for her thoughtfulness and her ability to make the best of any situation through her “Magic in Believing”. Her love and devotion to her family was a gift to us all. Mom is survived by her four children, Larry (Darlene), Beverley (Dennis), Janice (Jim) McGowan, and Lewis (Marla). She will always be loved and remembered as a wonderful, caring grandmother to her eleven grandchildren Dawn (Dean), Cameron (Lesley), Karen (Terry), Jill (Bruce), Jared (Valerie), Kerry, Jocelyn (Gabe), Joshua, Brandon (Jenny), Hayden and Ashton and her eleven great-grandchildren. We wish to thank the staff at the Saanich District Hospital for the care they provided to Mom in her last days.

Elmer Ronald MacDonald May 24, 1920 – December 25, 2008

It is with sadness that we belatedly announce the passing of our beloved father Elmer Ronald MacDonald on December 25, 2008 in Richmond, BC. In consideration of our mother safely living alone we postponed the posting of this obituary. This obituary is published at this time to honor Dad’s interests in our family genealogy. Dad was born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia the son of Lewis and Margaret MacDonald (nee McDonald). His family moved to Drumheller, Alberta before he was six years old and then moved to Calgary and Vancouver where he settled with his parents and two sisters Kathleen (Kay) and Marie. Dad married the love of his life Evelyn Mary MacDonald (Martin) in March 1942 before shipping out overseas in WWII. Dad served as a predictor operator in the Royal Canadian Artillery, Second Heavy Battalion and was mentioned in dispatches for his exemplary service. When he returned home he worked for a short time at the BC Liquor store and Johnston Terminals before finding his true passion working as Secretary-Manager for Branch 177 of the Royal Canadian Legion. Dad worked tirelessly in helping ex-service men and women obtain the needed benefits and raising funds for charities. He was the driving force in establishing the Chair for Family practice at the UBC Faculty of medicine and with Mom visited veterans in Hycroft, Shaughnessy, George Derby and Brock Fahrni, veterans’ hospitals until he was no longer able to go. He worked for the Vancouver Poppy Fund and envisioned and established the Vancouver Christmas Train in Stanley Park. He also worked tirelessly to establish the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in BC and received the award for his efforts. Upon retirement Dad travelled extensively with Mom fulfilling their lifelong dream and to maintain his interest in good works he was the treasurer of the New Chelsea Housing Society. Dad was predeceased by his mother and father, as well as his brother Cecil MacDonald (in infancy), and his sister Marie Kelt. He was survived by his sister Kathleen (Kay) Carpenter (since deceased). Dad was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, father-in-law and friend. He will be remembered for his leadership and his ability to manifest his vision through his “Magic in Believing”. His wisdom and devotion to his family is treasured by all of us. Dad was survived by his widow Evelyn Mary MacDonald (nee Martin) and by his four children, Larry (Darlene), Beverley (Dennis), Janice (Jim) McGowan, and Lewis (Marla). He will always be loved and remembered as a wonderful, caring grandfather to his eleven grandchildren Dawn (Dean), Cameron (Lesley), Karen (Terry), Jill (Bruce), Jared (Valerie), Kerry, Jocelyn (Gabe), Joshua, Brandon (Jenny), Hayden and Ashton and his nine great-grandchildren. We wish to thank the staff at the Richmond General Hospital for the care they provided to Dad in his last days. A service in remembrance of Elmer’s life was held on Friday, January 2, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. at Steveston United Church 3720 Broadway Street, Richmond, B.C. Reverend Rick Taylor officiated.
