Blockbuster Godzilla to leave a sizable economic footprint in Steveston

Philip Chin photo Will Godzilla will be meeting up with some organized American style resistance?

Steveston morphs from Storybrooke to San Francisco in $100 million Hollywood reboot by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Steveston is hardly resting on its laurels after the hit ABC TV series Once Upon a Time recently wrapped its second season of filming. On Monday, the fishing village appeared to be transforming into a coastal California community for eight planned days of filming for the blockbuster reboot of the Japanese monster film franchise Godzilla. It reportedly has a budget north of $100 million and will star Bryan Cranston, of Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad fame, along with Academy Award nominee Ken Watanabe, of The Last Samurai. Godzilla is filming all over Metro Vancouver, and is the biggest feature movie ever filmed in Richmond. Judging from a photograph taken by Philip Chin (@iPhilFlash), which appears to be of a military beach landing craft, Godzilla will be meeting up with some organized American style resistance when he first steps ashore. And it appears that Steveston will substitute for San Francisco instead of the fictional Maine town of Storybrooke as it has for much of the

past eight months, judging from an “Alcatraz Bayside Bistro” sign stored at one of the filming locations next to Steveston Landing. According to one of the people working on the set, the working title for the movie is Nautilus. The Godzilla remake is being directed by Gareth Edwards—whose skill at making mega-

sized monsters was flashed in the 2010 release Monsters—and is scheduled to be released in theatres on May 16, 2014. The movie will be produced by Legendary Pictures, whose CEO Thomas Tull said this about the movie: “Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to

see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop culturally relevant for as long as it has.” The new movie will reportedly be filmed closer in style to the original 1954 Japanese film.

Police seek more witnesses in fatal car crash As police are continuing their investigation into last Wednesday’s fatal car crash on Westminster Highway, investigators are continuing their appeal to speak to any witnesses who haven’t already come forward. They are encouraged to contact Const. Hwang of the Richmond RCMP’s road safety unit at 604278-1212. A speeding Aston Martin DB9 Volante was witnessed running a red light at No. 6 Road before smashing into several vehicles at a red light at Knight Street on Westminster Highway. A 44-year-old Richmond woman was killed when her car was struck by the speeding vehicle. The two people in the Aston Martin were women, and they were in their mid 40s. Both sustained life-threatening injuries but after surgery were listed in critical but stable condition. Also recovering is the 30-year-old driver of another vehicle, who is also listed in critical but stable condition.

Police say speed was a factor in the crash that involved eight vehicles, one of which hurtled across the intersection and came to a rest inside a ditch about 100 metres away.

New fire trucks to cost $2 million New ladder truck would be better equipped to fight fires in six-storey wood frame buildings by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Civic politicians are preparing to spend $2,005,663 on two new fire trucks for Richmond Fire-Rescue. Senior fire officials are urging council to award a seven-figure contract to Wholesale Fire and Rescue Ltd. for a 105-foot ladder truck and a pump truck. Two 23-year-old trucks would be

decommissioned with the arrival of the new models, which could be delivered within one year. The ladder truck would become the tallest-reaching vehicle in Richmond Fire-Rescue’s fleet, said deputy fire chief Tim Wilkinson. Plans call for it to be located at the new No. 3 Fire Hall, expected to be built at Cambie and No. 4 roads as a replacement to the current station on Bridgeport Road. Richmond Fire-Rescue’s current trio of ladder trucks reach 75 feet. The taller ladder truck is better equipped to tackle fires in six-storey wood frame buildings, including the 188-unit Remy apartment building, which burned down May 3, 2011 while under construction.

City Board Richmond Night Market Traffic Advisory Weekends from May 17 – October 14 During the summer operation of the Richmond Night Market, located at 8351 River Road (directly west of River Rock Casino Resort), traffic on No. 3 Road may be heavier than normal. Evening travel delays may occur in the area. The Richmond Night Market runs from May 17 – October 14. Hours of operation will be: • Fridays and Saturdays - 7:00 p.m. to midnight • Sundays and long weekend Mondays - 6:00 to 11:00 p.m. To get to the airport or to Vancouver the use of alternate routes, such as Dinsmore Bridge and Russ Baker Way, is strongly encouraged.

IKEA hit by job action Pickets were up Monday morning at the new mega IKEA store on Bridgeport Road in Richmond, after the Teamsters Union representing the store’s employees provided the Swedish retail giant with 72-hour strike notice last Thursday. Teamsters Union Local 213, which represents more than 300 workers, announced that the last offer presented by the company on the weekend was rejected by more than 80 per cent of workers, according to the CBC. IKEA took the step Monday morning to briefly disrupt the store’s operation by enacting a partial store closure from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. “Not all our co-workers voted for a strike mandate. In order to provide those co-workers, and any others who have changed their mind, with the opportunity to return to work and minimize any pay or benefit disruptions, we reacted with a brief, partial store closure on Monday...,” said IKEA spokesperson Madeleine Lowenborg-Frick. “IKEA has been bargaining in good faith with The Teamsters’ Union representing our Richmond store co-workers. We have offered a fair and generous offer that includes hourly rates that are well above industry average and competitive benefits for both full-time and part-time co-workers.” Lowerborg-Frick said the store will operate on reduced hours in the meantime, while working for a “quick, reasonable and equitable contract resolution for all concerned.” The union was not available for comment by press time.

ing Tuesday, a report from deputy fire chief Tim Wilkinson noted the tender award represents the best value to the city. Smeal Fire Apparatus Co. was the only other firm to submit a bid. “After a thorough evaluation of the submissions it was determined that Wholesale Fire and Rescue provided the best value response in terms of specification, a shorter delivery time of nine (months) for both units and value for the money,” noted Wilkinson. The new vehicles would also allow for easier maneuvering on city streets, with a lower overall height and tighter turning radius. City council is expected to approve the purchase later this month.

Ballot boxes were the work of Richmond firm Tuesday’s election results held in secure boxes designed by Great Little Box Company by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Matthew Hoekstra photo Brad Tindall, chief operating officer of Great Little Box Company, with a ballot box at the Richmond East district electoral office Tuesday.

A Richmond-based company’s corrugated handiwork briefly held the political future of the province Tuesday. Great Little Box Company, located on Mitchell Island, designed and manufactured ballot boxes, security seals

and privacy screens for Elections B.C. polls across B.C. The local firm has worked with elections officials for the past decade, and has developed sealing labels that ensure ballot boxes are completely tamper-proof, according to company president Robert Meggy. “We know that the province expects the highest quality when dealing with sensitive information and we are committed to providing B.C. with voting materials that they can completely trust.” Great Little Box produced 20,000 ballot boxes and seals and 3,000 privacy screens for the 40th provincial general election.

Visible minorities account for one million people or 45.2 per cent of the population of Metro Vancouver, according to newly released voluntary census data. The National Household Survey conducted by Statistics Canada in 2011 found visible minorities make up a majority of the population in Metro Vancouver’s four largest cities. Richmond’s visible minorities made up 70.4 per cent of its population, while the equivalent numbers were 59.5 per cent in Burnaby, 52.6 per cent in Surrey and 51.8 per cent in Vancouver. The largest visible minority groups in Metro Vancouver were Chinese (411,000), South Asian (252,000) and Fillipino (112,000). Metro Vancouver was home to 913,000 immigrants or 40 per cent of the population. B.C. had 945,000 people with no reported religious affiliation, almost as many as the 950,000 identified Christians. Nearly 156,000 Sikhs live in Metro Vancouver, according to the survey, while another 28,200 are in the Fraser Valley. About 73,200 of Canada’s one million Muslims live in Metro Vancouver.

Idols reach for the stars •Fun

Ten Richmond high school students deliver their best

• Friends

• Freedom

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A standing ovation—the evening’s first—was all for Robert De Guzman. The diminutive Grade 8 student from Hugh Boyd Secondary had just finished delivering his version of Beyoncé’s song“Listen”to a full house at Gateway Theatre—good enough to claim top spot in RichCity Idol 2013. The 10th annual singing competition for Richmond high school students—pitting 10 school Idols against one another in a friendly American Idol-like contest—happened last Thursday (May 9). Judging by the deafening screams from teens, this year’s version didn’t disappoint. “One thing I can say: eat your heart out Beyoncé,” said Juliet Dizon, a music industry specialist and one of three judges in the contest. “You just took that song to a level I didn’t expect.” De Guzman has been singing since age four. One of his young dreams, he says, is to become a singer. Addressing the young man on stage, radio personality and contest judge Andrew Sosa advised the singer to take it all in. Smile even. De Guzman obliged. Shouts of “He’s so cute!” from the crowd weren’t lost on Elaine Shep-

herd, a Juno-award winning singer and RichCity Idol alumna who served as a judge and guest performer. “Oh my gosh I can’t stop smiling. I just want to snuggle you,” said Shepherd. “You’re already so good for someone so young.” Others to finish in the top-three were Jenelle Pimentel of J.N. Burnett, who sang James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s World,”and Kat Perez of R.A. McMath, who performed Whitney Houston’s“I Have Nothing.” Other performers: Neil Legaspi (Hugh McRoberts), Merlyn Labovitch (Matthew McNair), Deepika Anupindi (H.J. Cambie), Jasmine Bayani (R.C. Palmer Secondary), Tim Lee (Steveston-London), Nicole Pimentel (A.R. MacNeill) and Hannah Balba (Richmond High). At this year’s show, executive pro-

ducer Natasha Jung launched the RichCity Idol Scholarship Fund to celebrate the event’s 10 year anniversary, proceeds of which will go to the fund. “We have spent the last nine years fundraising for various local and global charities and we wanted to bring it back to the community, who has been so incredibly supportive,” said Jung. “We have seen a lot of our former contestants and volunteers pursue careers that are a direct result of their participation in RichCity Idol. We want to enable those who have given us their time and support.” Organizers are trying to raise a minimum of $5,000 as an initial investment in the fund.

nother election campaign has come and gone, with the ritual posturing of political parties and most news media searching for anything they can portray as a conflict.

Now comes the time to wonder why not enough people cared, or informed themselves about the real problems of running this $40 billion corporation called the B.C. government. Why would they, when the whole thing is presented as a combination of beauty contest and sports event, with endless discussion of polls and “attack ads” and who’s ahead and what’s the score? Again we have seen the truth of former prime minister Kim Campbell’s observation that elections are no time to talk about serious issues.

B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark and NDP leader Adrian Dix in the TV debate.

Indeed, there are some things you can’t speak of at all. Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm caused a stir at a candidates’ debate when he referred to constituents’ concerns that disabled children can cause difficulties in classrooms. He didn’t say classrooms should be segregated. He didn’t deny the need for more support for special needs kids. But his opponents immediately portrayed it that way, and media seized on the conflict despite the factual inaccuracy. West Vancouver-Capilano MLA Ralph Sultan had a similar experience when he referred to his study of poverty in that

affluent area. He noted that there was a high correlation between single parenthood and kids in poverty. Picking on single mums, his detractors exclaimed, and that’s what got reported. The B.C. Conservatives kicked their BoundarySimilkameen candidate out of the party because he wrote an article saying women shouldn’t choose to be single mothers. You can talk about child poverty, as long as you only discuss it based on federal statistics that do not measure poverty. Christy Clark started doing this as soon as she became B.C. Liberal leader, one of several issues where she dispensed with the facts and tried

CBC photo

to copy a popular NDP stance instead. She was all about families, which can of course be single people, single parents or pretty well anything you want them to be. In fact the decline of the traditional family and the abdication of responsibility by many parents, fathers in particular, are central factors in the problem of poor and neglected children. But you can’t talk about that, at least not during elections. Whole areas of political discussion have devolved into euphemisms that are chosen because they can’t be defined. Everybody’s in favour of “affordable housing,” for instance. What they won’t

admit is that this is code for subsidized housing, because then they would have to talk about how much the subsidy is, and who has to pay for it. Good grief, that might raise the question of whether the state should be taking money away from some people and giving it to others so they can live where they otherwise couldn’t afford to live. We even have rules preventing the media from reporting polls on election day. People might be influenced by this, you see. If you tell them Party X is far ahead, they might stay home and mow the lawn instead. If you tell them someone is making a comeback, they might change their vote because they want to be on the winning side, or the one that has “momentum.” Just like any other sport. The news media are steadily losing influence with the public. There are many factors involved, including the vast array of information sources that are available at most people’s fingertips. Another factor is treating the public like they’re idiots. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocal news.com. tfletcher@ blackpress.ca

Coaches teach you much about life

Life Lessons

Andrea Phillpotts

G

rowing up, I was an awkward teen, almost a foot taller than all the other girls in my grade and painfully shy. My parents loved me

unconditionally but outside my family and schoolteachers, I didn’t feel anyone saw my potential —except for my skating coach. Mrs. Grant pestered me endlessly about my posture in figure skating. I remember her pulling the top of my head and telling me that I had to relax my shoulders and hold my head up high. Slouching was not an option. For endless hours, she encouraged me on the ice, pushing me to fulfill my very best. She gave me tough love at times but believed in me and would not allow me to sell myself short. While I never made it in figure skating, the life lessons she taught me as a coach were priceless: work hard, focus, tough it up when necessary, and above all, always hold your head high. What a gift.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. As an educator and parent now myself, I see how essential the role of the coach is to this village. At school, I’ve seen countless examples of the transformative power of good coaching for example lost boys getting inspired by a strong rugby team ethic and wayward youth finding a home in a basketball court. As a parent, I’ve observed how they’ve enriched my children’s lives for the better. I appreciate how my eldest daughter’s volleyball coaches took the girls aside and told them that they were representing the team and had a responsibility to look after their own health, nutrition, academics, and personal conduct. It was made perfectly clear that her coaches would be checking to see that they got their home-

work done, stayed away from illicit substances, and were respectful to the people around them. In my son’s soccer, he learned how to share the ball, look out for the little guy, and celebrate group successes, not just personal ones. For my second daughter, I remember the glow on her face when she told me her soccer coach called her “the man of the match” for her stellar performance in a game. It’s a thankless job being a coach, I imagine, organizing at all hours, often after work or on the weekends, hauling the equipment to the sports site, saying goodbye to your own kids while you inspire other people’s children. Still, it is a life changing calling. When you ask youth who their real life heroes or the people that inspire them are these selfless men and

On behalf of countless parents and kids, I’d like to say thank you. Coaches, you make the world a better place, one child at a time. Thanks for believing in us.

Million-dollar derelicts Editor: The transition from unoccupied house to derelict house can happen faster than most people might realize. That is what is becoming evident with some of the mega pseudomansions that were built during the first rush of demolition and re-development that took place a few years ago. Empty since they were built and/or only used periodically as “hotels,” these edifices are starting to exhibit all the characteristics of disinterested abandonment: lawns, flower-beds and driveways overrun by weeds; dead shrubs around the yard; bolts and latches rusting away and gates starting to fall from hinges; lighting fixtures hanging loose; paint starting to fleck away from window and door trims; windows covered in grime and broken blinds hanging askew; rain

spouts falling away from gutters; and garbage accumulating along the boulevard. The fact that the majority of these houses are shoddilybuilt to begin with only accelerates the deterioration. The City of Richmond has already given rise to the “affluent ghost town” syndrome; now

it is making another contribution by helping to re-define the concept of “fixerupper” to include million-dollar, 10 year old properties. Yet another example of Brodie and company’s idea of progressive community-planning. Ray Arnold Richmond

Council isn’t listening

How to make Richmond more of a destination

Editor: Dear Richmond City Councillors, What happened to listening to the very people who voted you into office? What happened to listening to the voices of the very people who helped to build this city for the past 50 years? Are we invisible and don’t matter anymore? Firstly, only one of you stood up for dual language signs—was our country not built on English as our first language and French our second. Any new business should automatically have to have English on their signs and should be inviting the whole community to its business. For our mayor to say “well if I can’t read the sign then obviously they don’t want me to shop there so I’ll take my business elsewhere”—shame on you for not standing up for the English speaking public.

Editor: A suggestion for satisfying council’s craving for a destination museum in Richmond and for putting the much maligned Richmond Olympic Oval to good use. Across the water, the Vancouver Maritime Museum has languished in a small, leaky building for years while various plans to build a new facility have come and mostly gone. So, why not move the maritime museum to the Richmond Oval, which could be a magnificent showcase for the venerable St. Roch, the first ship to circumnavigate North America, and the museum’s many other treasured

Secondly, what happened to our bylaws that protect our established trees? I just witnessed the removal of two beautiful cherry blossom trees being removed from a property in our neighborhood to make room for another mansion, or should I say concrete! These trees were at least 45 years old and the previous owner kept them pruned and healthy, but they were in the way! No amount of fine can replace 45 years of growth and these bylaws encourage them to be removed. Shame on you for allowing this to happen! Thanks for turning Richmond into just another “concrete jungle” So, shame on all of you—don’t look for my vote in the next election.—I’ll be voting for people who care. Patricia Rozinsky Richmond

marine artifacts. In fact, the oval is probably large enough to house both the maritime museum and an expanded Richmond Museum. Its riverfront location also allows for the construction of new dock facilities to accommodate some of the museum’s floating collection and visiting vessels. The City of Richmond, the Child of the Fraser, is a natural home for a regional maritime museum. It’s a community that lives and breathes maritime heritage. It is already home to the Gulf of Georgia Cannery and the rustic Britannia Heritage Shipyard as

well as Steveston, a real live fishing village and Canada’s largest commercial fishing harbor. As well, many marinas and clubs dot the shoreline around the island. We could offer a seasonal ferry service to link these attractions for the convenience of visitors and to complete the “maritime experience.” Richmond could be marketed as a unique “world class” maritime heritage destination offering a combination of stellar facilities and festivals dedicated to showcasing Canada’s proud and diverse maritime history.

Fraser River rises with snowmelt The Fraser River is rising fast as a result of rapid snowmelt from last week’s hot weather as well as rain since then. The B.C. River Forecast Centre on Monday issued a high streamflow advisory for the Fraser in the Lower Mainland, as well as further

upstream in Quesnel, the Fraser Canyon and at Hope The Fraser was flowing at 9,000 cubic metres per second at Hope on Monday and that was forecast to reach 10,000 as early as Wednesday and potentially 11,500 by Thursday.

“Given current rates of rise in tributary channels, and we weather yesterday and today, model results may be underestimating the rate of rise in the Lower Fraser,” the forecast centre cautioned. —by Jeff Nagel

Richmond Night Market returns The Richmond Night Market opens Friday at its location near River Rock Casino Resort and Bridgeport Station. Drawing visitors to the site, according to organizers, will be a 15-metre high yellow duck resting on a barge in the river—a tribute to the site’s Duck Island location. More than 250 vendors will showcase everything from the latest cellphone covers to gadgets, and more than 100 more vendors will be offering an array of popular food choices. New this year is a carnival, where market-goers can test their skills at carnival-style games for a chance to win prizes, and the “Magical Duck Island” board game, whose players have a chance to win $100,000 in prizes including the grand prize of a custom-designed Mini Cooper. The market, situated on a 7.3-hectare site at 8351 River Rd., is open Fridays and Saturdays 7 p.m. to midnight and Sundays and holidays from 6 to 11 p.m. until Oct. 14.

Don Fennell photo Ball hockey was one of the fitness activities to try out at the Move for Health Festival.

Richmond gets moving for health by Don Fennell Sports Editor A Move for Health Festival Friday successfully capped a week-long celebration of sport, dance and wellness in Richmond. The City of Richmond hosted the event at Minoru Park, which promoted the benefits of healthy, active living. Richmond was selected by the BC. Recreation and Parks Association as the official launch site of a province-wide campaign. “It was all about encouraging people of all ages to get out and be active,” said Paul Brar, co-ordinator of parks programs for the City of Richmond. “And I think it encouraged some people who might never have tried some things an opportunity to do so.” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie noted the Move for Heath was hugely endorsed by the local elementary schools. More than 1,000 students, representing 64 classes and 20 schools, were active for at least one hour over the course a week. Dr. James Lu, Richmond’s medical health officer, and many his fellow Richmond physicians also found a

unique way to participate in the Move for Health by walking with their patients. They marked the occasion by

wearing special white t-shirts. “It was also about encouraging all of us to just get moving,” Lu said.

ust like the relationship between music and style, the fashion industry is also intimately linked with movies. Who could forget about Audrey Hepburn’s iconic little black Givenchy dress, accessorized with pearls, a tiara, and classic Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses in Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Or Keira Knightley’s gorgeous emerald green silk dress in Atonement that set off a multitude of copycats? Ever since

1948, fashion has been recognized at the Oscars under their Academy Award for Best Costume Design — not to mention all the red carpet outfits that get fawned over or criticized by viewers all over the world. One of the best places to take style inspiration from is film. So the next time you’re mulling in front of your closet trying to decide on an outfit, take a cue from a favourite movie character. With the recent release of Baz Luhrmann’s stylized adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, we can expect another Roaring Twenties revival in fashion. Retro looks were seen on the spring runways of

Bottega Veneta, and glamorous fringed mini dresses were spotted at Versace. The flapper style previously made a comeback around the time Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris came out. Glitzy artdeco dresses paraded down the runway at Gucci’s show soon after the movie. And over at Etro in the same season, dropwaist dresses reminiscent of the jazz age were featured heavily in the collection. To incorporate the flapper look into your regular wardrobe, try pieces accented with beading or fringe, and mini dresses with straight waists. Accessorize with artdeco jewelry, embellished headbands, and layer together strands of beaded

chy incorporated rebellious leather looks into their presentation while Fendi showed dark futuristic ensembles made of PVC and patent leather. The movie also inspired H&M to come out with a collection in collaboration with the film’s costume designer, Trish Summerville. To get the look, combine leather pieces with items such as ripped jeans, distressed tees, studded and spiked accessories, and combat boots. Another movie that strongly influenced the style of many, especially in the late 1970s, is Diane Keaton’s character in Woody Allen’s romantic comedy Annie

Hall. Get the menswear-inspired look with oversized blazers, wide-leg trousers and flowy skirts. For the bold, complete the ensemble with a tie and bowler hat. A movie character look that would be perfect to emulate for the warmer weather is Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. Tuck a crisp, short sleeved buttonup into a dirndl skirt and add a chic scarf around the neck for a polished touch. A popular and stylish film that made a notable impact on those who came of age in the 90s is Clueless. Bring up the movie to any young woman and, chances are, she’ll talk about how much she still

Richmond to unveil plans for new downtown park Open house Saturday, while public planning for Garden City lands begins today by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A new City Centre park is the subject of an open house Saturday, while planning for another green space gets underway this week. The 1.6-hectare (four-acre) park—to be built at the northeast corner of Cambie Road and Hazelbridge Way, a block from Aberdeen Station—is slated to become the largest of five parks envisioned for Capstan Village. Planning for the park followed a rezoning application from Polygon Development 192 Ltd., which is planning to build 528 homes in three 16-storey towers. The project known as Mueller Towers is taking over the city-owned Cambie Field. In exchange, Polygon is relocating the park and expanding it.

price in Metro hit $1.495 per litre Tuesday, up about eight cents in the past week. Petroleum analyst Jason Parent, a senior associate at the Kent Group, said supplies have tightened and prices are up partly in response to the unexpected shutdown of gasoline refining units at a Suncor refinery near Edmonton. He said the outlook for the Lower Mainland depends in part on how long refining is disrupted at Suncor. “It all depends on how long that lasts and how effectively suppliers are able to bring in alternate supply into that region,” Parent said. “Generally speaking, I wouldn’t expect it to get much higher.” Gas prices typically jump in the spring as more drivers take to the roads, cutting into gasoline supplies and putting upward pressure on prices. But Parent said the tradi-

tional seasonal spike happened earlier this year. He said wholesale prices paid by retailers have already risen about 14 cents in the last couple of weeks. “Retail prices up until the last couple of days haven’t really kept pace with that.”

City officials are embarking on a yearlong planning process to determine the future use of the 55-hectare (136.5-acre) site, which is locked in the Agricultural Land Reserve. The city bought the land—at the eastern edge of City Centre—in 2010 from the Canada Lands Company and Musqueam Indian Band for $59.2 million. It’s currently vacant. The new Garden City lands website, creategardencitylands.ca, is aimed at raising awareness of the planning process, which kicks into high gear June 1 at an Ideas Fair. The fair is billed as a family-oriented event that will include guided tours, creative activities and displays. Residents will also be afforded the chance to begin offering their ideas and comments on potential future uses of the land. A broad range of public amenities “integrated with specific urban agricultural and environmental features,” is the city’s current vision, according to the city. The entire planning process is expected to be finished by the fall of 2014.

Early plans called for a field, sheltered stage, square, children’s play area, pathways and public art. In a news release last week, the city called the park “the living room for Capstan Village.” “It will function as a quiet sanctuary of neighbourhood green space. In addition, the park will serve as a vibrant, urban, public square, complemented by a variety of landscapes, programs, activities, ecological features and amenities. Most importantly, the park will be an inclusive place, welcoming people to visit at all times of the day regardless of the season.” At Saturday’s open house, city planners will unveil their vision for the park and collect input from residents. Richmond Cultural Centre’s Performance Hall (7700 Minoru Gate) will host the open house, which runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Project information boards and a feedback form will also be available online beginning Wednesday at letstalkrichmond.ca. Meanwhile, a new website dedicated to the planning of the Garden City lands is expected to launch today.

Gas prices here are also influenced by the fact Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline, which supplies most of Metro’s refined gasoline, is at capacity. Parent said the pipeline may have allocated slightly more capacity recently to crude oil shipments, leaving less flexibility to move more gasoline in response to jumps in demand. Motorists shouldn’t assume that they’re being ripped off just because gasoline prices are rising at a time that crude oil prices have remained flat. “Crude oil and refined gasoline are two different

commodities with different supply and demand fundamentals,” Parent said. “Their prices can be moving in opposite directions at the same time for different reasons.” Gas prices here hit a recent bottom of around $1.20 per litre in December, according to the website Gasbuddy. com. Metro Vancouver gas prices haven’t been this lofty since the record highs of around $1.50 a litre in the summer of 2008, and prices now would be lower than at that time if not for increases since then in B.C.’s carbon tax or TransLink’s fuel tax

Sockeyes invited to city hall Junior hockey team honoured as Western Canadian champions by Don Fennell Sports Editor

A

s the 2012 Stanley Cup champions, the Los Angeles Kings were invited to visit the White House in March. On Monday, the Richmond Sockeyes received the equivalent local honour as the 2013 Keystone Cup winners were invited to city hall.

“All of Richmond is very proud of your accomplishments, not just this season but every year,” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie told the Sockeyes in attendance. Then, prior to having his photo taken with representatives of the Junior B hockey team, Brodie joked: “I should remind you that I dropped the first puck this season and I think it’s not the first time I dropped the puck and you ended up with that (Keystone Cup) trophy.” The Sockeyes were represented at the council meeting by Doug Paterson and Maurice Lambert (two members of the ownership group), general manager Richard Petrowsky, community relations co-ordinator Mas Morimoto and graduating players Matt Wagner, Jeremy Hamaguchi and Rudi Thorsteinson (all of whom played their minor hockey locally). The 40th anniversary season was indeed a special one for the Sockeyes noted Paterson, who was the Sockeyes’ first-ever captain when the team was formed in 1971-72. After finishing with a Pacific Junior Hockey League-best 68 points (32-8-0-4) in 44

“All of Richmond is very proud of your accomplishments, not just this season but every year.” — Mayor Malcolm Brodie regular-season games, it was in the playoffs the team really caught fire. Paterson pointed to a Game 7 victory over the Delta Ice Hawks in the league’s semifinal series as perhaps the biggest catalyst. From that point forward the Sockeyes won 15 straight games, seemingly getter stronger and more successful in each one culminating in a decisive 5-2 victory over the Saskatoon Royals in the Keystone

Cup Western Canadian final April 21 in St. Malo, Man. Along the way, the Sockeyes also won the Tom Shaw Trophy as Pacific Junior Hockey League playoff champions and the Cyclone Taylor Cup as provincial champions. As a further testament to their fine play, the Sockeyes were recognized as the most sportsmanlike team at the Western Canadian

championship. Paterson also noted the efforts of the Sockeyes’ organization to assist its graduating players off the ice. “Eleven years ago we put together a group of guys to oversee a scholarship program,” Paterson said. “We have an annual alumni game and also a golf outing and these two revenue sources raise most of the money. At our upcoming banquet we’ll be giving out 15 scholarships that will take us to $163,000 in 11 years. You can appreciate we’re Junior B and don’t have budget budgets or corporate

Sports Editor If the Hugh Boyd Trojans’ high school football program was looking for some endorsement it got it last week. Former standout Hosam Shahin, who graduated from the Richmond school in 2009, was selected 14th overall in last Sunday’s Canadian Football League

draft by the Montreal Alouetttes. Shahin is on schedule to graduate this year with a degree in commerce from Rice University in Houston, where he earned a football scholarship. The sixfoot-three, 290-pound defensive tackle bounced back from an injury that held him out in the spring to become one of the top interior defensive linemen in Conference USA earning

a career-best 45 tackles and a conference-leading five tackles. Shahin was a AA provincial allstar in his Grade 12 season at Hugh Boyd. Coach Bill Haddow remembers Shahin joining the Trojans in Grade 10, having never played football before. Then junior coach Peter Adams first saw Shahim’s potential and encouraged him to try out for the team.

Roadrunners 3-0 out of the gate Intermediate A’s hosting Burnaby tonight at 8 pm

Attitude prove it’s the finish that counts As any parent of a softball player in the Lower Mainland knows, Mother’s day means tournament season is in full swing. Richmond Attitude, a under-19 women’s team, together with some friends from the Panthers, a local under-16 team, spent the weekend at Softball City in South Surrey.. While the Attitude struggled early in their second tournament of the season—and as a result were forced to start the playoffs from last place Sunday morning—they made their moms proud with a remarkable show of determination

Richmond Roadrunners are back in a familiar perch atop the B.C. Intermediate Lacrosse League standings. Led by Braeden Jensen’s six goals and four from Jayden Campbell, Richmond doubled the visiting Delta Islanders 18-9 in its most recent game to improve to 3-0 on the season. Spencer Bromley and Tayler Vogrig also powered the offense with five assists each, while goalie Graham Husick was solid in net aided by a strong defence. Other goal scorers for Richmond were Joshua McLaughlin and Bromley (who had two each) and Jonathan Carey, Patrick Szabo, Tyler Varley and Vogrig (one each). Richmond, which won its home opener 22-5 over the Nanaimo Timbermen April 28, is currently enjoying a break in the schedule, before resuming play in Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam next Tuesday and Thursday.

to eventually earn gold. A decisive victory over the North Delta Sox was followed by a one-run victory over the Abbotsford 96ers and earned the Attitude a place in the final against the Ridge Meadows Elite. The final game saw Attitude hold the Elite off the scoresheet for the first four innings, allowing only two runners to advance as far as third base. Meanwhile, Richmond earned single runs in each of the first two innings and followed these up with two more in the third and four in the fourth innings.

Football BC holding provincial team tryouts At least two local athletes will be hoping to impress at this weekend’s Football BC provincial team tryouts in Richmond. Tyler Moxin, a quarterback with the Richmond Raiders community program, and Hugh Boyd Trojans’ high school receiver Austin Do will be trying out for the under-16 and under-18 teams respectively.

Richmond Roadrunners hope to build on a successful 2012 season in which they won the BC Intermdiate A Lacrosse League regular-season title.

Two gifts in one for Lum at BC Cup On her birthday, and Mother’s Day, Leah Lum scores tying and winning goals in bid for spot on Team BC by Don Fennell Sports Editor Sunday was golden for Richmond’s Leah Lum. Celebrating her 17th birthday, Lum scored the tying and winning goals as the Predators edged the Thrashers 4-3 in overtime in the final of the BC Cup in Salmon Arm. It was also a wonderful Mother’s Day gift too, said Lum’s mom Debbie. The BC Cup is the first stage in the formation of BC Hockey’s under-18 provincial female team which will participate in the national women’s under-18 championship. The provincial camp will be held May 22 to 26 in Lake Cowichan. Throughout the camp, players will be evaluated on their play, fitness/strength, attitude and their perceived contribution to a winning team. It is also the third and final stage of the high performance program. It is an opportunity for the top players in the province to train and compete at an elite level and is meant to introduce players to the beginning of the Hockey Canada program of excellence. This is the second year in a row Lum has played on the winning team at the BC Cup competition. She was joined this year on the Predators by fellow Richmondite Kylee Styles, while another local talent, Jodi Gentile, played for the Wild. Four teams in all participated in the BC Cup. These 80 players were all invited to participate after being scouted during their regular 201213 season. From this group of 80 players, about half will be invited to attend the provincial camp, with Lum having just received her invitation Monday. Lum and Gentile played for Team BC in 2012 in Dawson Creek, where BC narrowly lost out on winning bronze losing the third-place game in overtime.

Leah Lum demonstrates her immense skill during a game for the Richmond Ravens last season.

Richmond Gymnastics sending six to nationals by Don Fennell Sports Editor Six members of the Richmond Gymnastics Association—the most from any club in the province and perhaps the country—are among the 99 B.C. artistic and trampoline gymnasts that have qualified for the 2013 Canadian championships May 21 to 25 in Ottawa. Robert Watson, Joshua Stuart, Devy Dyson, Brian Lau, Chris Kaji and Nicolas Bourne were selected to Team BC following a series of events this winter and spring. Fellow Richmondites Tiana Hesmert (who trains with Club Aviva) and Chelsea Nerprio (Shasta Trampoline Club) have also made the squad. 2004 Olympian Ken Ikeda (Twisters) is the anchor of a very strong men’s artistic gymnastics contingent. He will be competing in his 19th Canadian Gymnastics Championship. Other favourites include fellow national team members Stuart and Watson. Ferenc Szabo Jr, head coach of the Richmond Gymnastics Association men’s competitive program, notes the athletes have sacrificed and in some cases overcome a lot to reach this point. “Devy had undergone treatment

to strengthen his immune system and was told it could it could affect his training,” Szabo said. “But after the treatment ended in January we discussed everything and have kept his health a priority. I’m extremely proud of his attitude, and his work ethic has been absolutely amazing.” In Lau, Szabo sees a good candidate to become a future member of the junior national team, and perhaps to follow in the steps of national team veteran Watson who has now been joined on the senior team by Richmond teammate Stuart. Bourne has also moved up a category and promises to be a strong member of the B.C. team participating at the national youth level. Kaji, at 12-years-old the youngest member of the club’s competitive stream to qualify for the Canadian championships, will be competing in the high-performance Argo Division. He recently placed first on vault and second in the floor exercise at Elite Canada. “The boys’ determination makes my job really easy in helping them step up to the next level,” said Szabo. “It’s great to be leading a group that represents our club, province and country so well.”

She will be deeply missed by her sister’s in-law, Elsie Grimes and Mary Schaible, many nieces, nephews, her dear friend Bruna Pavey, the Schlossarek and Beley families as well as friends and neighbors, especially Mrs. Jarvis and Mr. and Mrs. Taylor. Helen will be well remembered by her many Bingo friends from the Steveston Community Centre. Helen came from Winnipeg, to Vancouver in 1942 where she met her husband, Alfred Schaible (Sask.) and was married on June 23, 1944. Helen lived an interesting and full life for which she had many stories. Her devotion and support for her daughters, their friends and their many activities was unequivocal. She was one of the first volunteers on the Women’s Auxiliary at the Steveston Community Centre where she enjoyed volunteering for over 40 years. Helen made many friends as a tour guide with Dena’s Tours traveling to Reno and Disneyland. She was very proud of being on the local TV station when she was interviewed by Terry Martyniuk about her collection of 2,900 sets of salt & pepper shakers. The family gratefully acknowledges Dr. Sebastian Howie’s high quality of care he provided in the past years. We extend a special thanks to the 2nd floor staff of Rosewood Manor in Richmond for their care and compassion to make Helen happy and comfortable, especially in her last weeks. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Rosewood Manor, 6602 Blundell Rd Richmond BC V7C 5C4 or your favourite charity. The family invites you to celebrate Helen’s life, Friday, May 17, 2013, 2–4 pm in the Banquet Room, Steveston Community Centre, 4111 Moncton Street, Steveston, BC.

“COLOMBO”, ID# 295271, UNKNOWN, COCKATIEL CROSS, 2 YEARS

Colombo is a handsome, 2 year old cockatiel who was found as a stray. He is hand-tamed, affectionate and will keep you entertained! Cockatiels can live up to 22 years old if given the proper care, nutrition and environment. Therefore it is important to do research on a cockatiel’s diet as they have certain dietary needs. Colombo is very charming, and if you believe that he will be a great addition to your family, please come down to the centre and meet him today!
