Richmond Centre voter turnout worst in B.C. Just 38.9 per cent of registered voters cast ballots in Tuesday’s election by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Richmond Centre had the lowest voter turnout of B.C.’s 85 ridings in Tuesday’s election, according to data from Elections B.C. Just 38.9 per cent of registered voters in the riding cast ballots on Tuesday, according to preliminary figures. Across B.C., turnout was 52.3 per cent. Liberal Teresa Wat easily won the Richmond Centre riding on May 14 with 8,496 votes. But with a low turnout, just 19.6 per cent of registered voters actually voted for Wat. Nearly seven out of every 10 residents in the riding is an immigrant, with the vast majority arriving in Canada after 1991, according to B.C. Stats. In the 2009 election, voter turnout in Richmond Centre was 41 per cent. Voter turnout in Richmond East wasn’t much better. In that riding, reclaimed by Liberal incumbent Linda Reid, voter turnout was 43.9 per cent. In Richmond-Steveston, it was 51 per cent. Elections B.C. hasn’t yet compiled its own voter turnout statistics, since some ballots must still be counted. Absentee ballots will be tallied by Elections BC officials between May 27 and 29, when a recount of advance and general voting also takes place. Don Main, communications manager at Elections B.C., said the agency’s public awareness campaign around voting options has boosted absentee voting—including by mail, which

has doubled to approximately 8,000 votes. “We’ve let people know about those opportunities to participate. We know in the past

that most people go and vote on general voting day, but we’ve just brought more awareness to the fact people can do that.”

Following a complete review, early ridingby-riding results are expected to be available from Elections B.C. mid-June.

Christy Clark had ‘fire and determination,’ says former MLA Adrian Dix’s positive campaign worked against him, says another ex-MLA by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter An election where pollsters’ predictions failed has observers of B.C. politics wondering how it all happened. Christy Clark’s Liberals sailed to victory Tuesday night in what some have called one of Canada’s most dramatic political comebacks, winning 50 seats to the NDP’s 33. For months leading up to the vote, polls showed the Liberals well behind Adrian Dix’s NDP. But Clark’s focus on a strong economy ultimately ruled the day for voters. Richmond Coun. Ken Johnston, a former Liberal MLA, supported Clark from the beginning, and suggesting voters became wary of Dix in the final days of the campaign. Johnston remembers a meeting he had with Clark a month before the election. “She looked at me square in the eyes and said, ‘Ken, I’m going to beat this guy.’ The fire and determination was there and she believed in herself when nobody else did.” That was the trait and the characteristic why I

supported her.” Clark may have led her party to a majority government, but she lost her own seat in Vancouver-Point Grey. Johnston said that result isn’t a huge surprise since Clark spent much of the campaign travelling the province as leader. “I guess it would have been nice had she won Point Grey, but the fact of the matter is she won the province, which is a bigger issue.” At a press conference Wednesday, Clark said she’ll “find a way into the house if that’s where the votes end up,” but said she’s waiting for final results May 27. Provided a Liberal MLA steps down, Clark has plenty of time to arrange a byelection, said Allan Warnke, a political science instructor and former Richmond-Steveston MLA. Some observers have suggested a Richmond MLA may step aside. Warnke said Andrew Wilkinson, a Liberal who won VancouverQuilchena with 65 per cent of the vote, may give up his seat. Warnke said Clark’s “perky” image worked in her favour, while Dix’s early announcement to wage a positive campaign ultimately worked against him. “It goes to show even if you want to go that route, don’t advertise it. You’re leaving yourself wide open for your opponents to challenge you.” Tuesday’s election also proved how difficult it is to win a seat without the backing of a party. Just one independent, Vicki Huntington in

Delta South, was elected. Of the four independents who ran in Richmond’s ridings, Gary Law was most popular, earning 8.5 per cent of the vote in Richmond Centre. “I think he gave it as good as you can get as an independent candidate,” said Warnke. “People are just so focused, especially in the polarized province that we are, on the two major parties, and I think that

was reinforced.” Nick Loenen, a former Social Credit MLA in Richmond who ran against Warnke in 1991, said the election results pointed to a greater polarization in B.C. Noting overall support for the Green party dropped, Loenen said interest in Green principles hasn’t necessarily waned, but more people recognize casting ballots for the party are wasted votes.

“If we had a different voting system, third parties—Green party for instance—would capture a much larger percentage of the popular vote,” said Loenen, a longtime advocate for electoral reform. B.C. voters twice considered switching to a single-transferrable voting system in referendums, but each time elected to stay with the current first-past-the-post model. “In the three Richmond ridings it was a foregone conclusion. Even if the NDP had done extremely well, as anticipated, these three ridings would have still been Liberal.” The NDP failed to grow its vote in Richmond, despite a more robust campaign. Loenen said the Liberals’ single platform plank—don’t trust the NDP to run the economy—appealed to Richmond’s largely wellheeled voters, but didn’t have the same weight in less affluent ridings. Said Loenen: “When you have that kind of polarization, the choices become rather stark. You’re either for us or against us. It divides society, it doesn’t bring society together. Only one can dominate.”

Council Update Community will determine future of the Garden City Lands By Evelina Halsey-Brandt Richmond residents have an extraordinary opportunity to help us create something Evelina Halsey-Brandt special in the Councillor heart of our city. The City is launching a public planning process for the Garden City Lands, that large open space right on the edge of our City Centre at Garden City Way and Westminster Highway. It is 55 hectares (136 acres) in size, and Council purchased it in 2010 for community use. Now we need to determine what types of community use we want on this land. These lands have been out of community use and access for nearly a century. In the early 1900s, it was used as a rifle range. Oldtime Richmondites tell stories of picking berries on the property while dodging bullets! The rifle range closed in 1928. The land sat vacant until 1949 when radio transmitter towers were built to provide communications for marine traffic. The transmitters stayed there for the next 45 years. During all this time, this great swath of land has largely been inaccessible to the general public.

As early as 1955, Council began trying to acquire the property from the federal government for community use. Repeated attempts and agreements to acquire the land failed right through until 2010, when Council was finally able to purchase the property outright. It’s extremely rare that any community has the opportunity to gain access to such a large piece of open space right in the middle of the city. These lands will become a tremendous community resource for generations to come. All of us can have a say in creating that incredible legacy. The possibilities for this land are up to your imagination. Help us make this a vibrant space our whole community can enjoy and benefit from. Too often, we hear from residents who complain about Council decisions and lack of input. This is a real opportunity for you to influence our decisions. There is no plan for the Garden City Lands. While some interest groups have expressed their ideas about what should happen to these lands, Council has not made any decisions. We want to hear from you. Join us at the Ideas Fair on June 1 on the Garden City Lands and visit www.creategardencitylands.ca for more information on how you can participate.

NDP left reeling by province-wide results Apparently it isn’t quite time for change in B.C. or in Richmond’s three riding by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter While Gian Sihota and Scott Stewart refused to say it, their fellow NDP candidate for Richmond-Centre, Frank Huang, admitted it: negative campaigning does work. Outside the Richmond NDP’s headquarters on Francis Road, an optimistic atmosphere turned into stunned silence when CTV News declared a 99 per cent probability of a Liberal majority. Before that, Scott Stewart was disappointed when CTV declared John Yap victorious in Richmond-Steveston, with

roughly a 2-to-1 margin over Stewart with just 15 of 169 polling stations counted. “Oh, c’mon,” he added, and then sat himself in front of a computer and watched the numbers slowly roll in. “It is a bit of a surprise,” he said outside NDP local HQ, a former convenience store on Francis Road that

sold sweets then soured on sales. “We’ve run an excellent campaign. We’ve had a lot of good support from the community, we’ve had a lot of good support from our volunteers. And I’m really proud of the campaign. A little bit surprised by the results, but the voters speak.” Stewart said he was proud of the fact that the

City Board Newspaper Distribution Regulation Bylaw No. 7954 Amendment Bylaw No. 8933 The proposed amendments establish approved zones for newspaper distribution agents as well as related permit fees and penalties. At the April 22, 2013 Council meeting, three readings were given to Newspaper Distribution Regulation Bylaw No. 7954, Amendment Bylaw No. 8933, to allow newspaper distribution agents in zones where multiple publication news racks have been installed, and to regulate agent activity. Two other related amendment bylaws also received three readings at the April 22, 2013 meeting: • Consolidated Fees Bylaw No. 8636, Amendment Bylaw No. 9017 - sets the annual permit fee for distribution agents at $250.00 and amalgamates permit and other fees within the Consolidated Fees Bylaw No. 8636. • Notice of Bylaw Violation Dispute Adjudication Bylaw No. 8122, Amendment Bylaw No. 9018 - adds penalties for contraventions relating to newspaper distribution boxes and agents. Council will consider adoption of these bylaws at the June 10, 2013 Council meeting and if adopted, the bylaws would come into force on June 11, 2013.

NDP ran a positive campaign, despite the early results that showed they were headed for a stunning defeat that seemed highly improbably just 24 hours earlier. “I still stand behind the positive campaign. I still stand behind addressing the issues and holding the other party accountable for the issues and the way they perform rather than the negative campaign. People are sick and tired of the negative campaign. Is that what worked or not? I don’t know.” Positive campaigning is the new way of politics in Canada, Stewart said. “Did it do us well in this election? Well, maybe not. But I’m certainly hoping that campaigns in the future will stay positive.” Gian Sihota was surprised by the early numbers on Tuesday night, but noted that the NDP had made positive strides since the last election. “We ran a very positive campaign...and at the end of the night...we respect the voters’ decision.” Frank Huang said it was up to the voters to decide. “I respect their choice,”he said of Richmond-Centre residents. On the provincial results, Huang said it was too early to say what the NDP did that was right, and what was wrong. Some political pundits have questioned Monday why the NDP didn’t focus more on the Liberal’s handling of the HST. “I think it means negative campaigning works in this election. I was quite worried about that,” Huang admitted. He said the negative campaigning is not a good culture for politics.

John Yap is returning to the legislature for a third consecutive term. The Liberal incumbent in Richmond-Steveston finished well ahead of the other four candidates in the running. Yap took the riding with 52 per cent of the vote. “I’m humbled. It’s such a rush to feel that the voters of RichmondSteveston have given me their confidence for another term,” he said at his Chatham Street campaign headquarters Tuesday night. “I’m so grateful to my incredible team of volunteers to help with this really grassroots campaign that reached out to voters.” The Liberals—and Yap himself—were dogged early in the campaign by a leaked memo describing the use of government resources to boost the Liberals’ popularity with ethnic communities. The affair prompted Yap to resign from cabinet. But any furor over that, or other Liberal missteps since 2001, didn’t seem to bother the majority of voters. Yap’s popularity slipped only slightly— nine per cent lower than the 2009 election. “In 12 years you make mistakes, and we’ve had our share of mistakes. We also know that in the last 12 years, since 2001 we have delivered on the big things for British Columbia,” said Yap, speaking moments before leaving on a bus to a celebration downtown for the Liberal party, which won its fourth consecutive majority government. “People wanted the stability of a strong economy that will give us a secure future,” he said. “British Columbians were on the same page with us, and we have a great result tonight.” Yap’s campaign knocked on thousands of doors in the weeks leading up to the election, and he said economic issues concerned voters the most. “Our message, of focusing on the economy, of focusing on jobs, was exactly what the majority of the voters in Richmond-Steveston are concerned about.” The NDP’s Scott Stew-

Linda Reid wins a sixth term

Better Grades Happier Kids

by Don Fennell Staff Reporter Just a few minutes after the polls closed on B.C. election night Tuesday, Linda Reid’s young son, Will, had an important question. “Mom, if you get your job back can we get more Lego?” About an hour later, amidst a chorus of “four more years” from her campaign workers and supporters and in between posing for photos and congratulations, he got the answer he was hoping for. “We’ll be getting that lego,” she confirmed after learning she’d been declared re-elected as MLA for Richmond East for a fifth time. Reid added the re-election of a Liberal government means great opportunity and stability for the province, “and it means kids can have a good shot at having a stable life.” “That’s why I do it. I don’t do it for any other reason,” she said of her role in pub-

have trusted me, they have supported me, that I can represent them in the legislature.” The NDP’s Frank Huang finished second, with 23 per cent of the vote. Michael Wolfe finished third for the Greens with 8.6 per cent. Wat, 63, is the first politician of Chinese decent to win Richmond Centre, which boasts the largest ethnic Chinese population in B.C. The Chinese community comprises 55 per cent of the riding, according to B.C. Stats, and 76 per cent of visible minorities in the riding are Chinese. Wat’s campaign party drew plenty of interest from ethnic media, which lobbed the first questions at the soon-to-be MLA in Chinese. Voters had a clear choice, she said. “Do you want to go back to the ’90s when we became a have-not province, or do we want to move forward with a strong economy and secure future.” Wat addressed the crowd to thank residents for supporting her, along with her campaign volunteers. She called the campaign one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences of her life. “You know that I will do my very best to represent our community in Victoria and to serve each and every one of you to make Richmond Centre a better and safer and more prosperous community.” Wat said her priority is to now connect with community and business organizations in Richmond Centre and to listen to their concerns. Rob Howard last held the riding. He finished with 61.5 per cent of the vote in 2009. Others who ran in Richmond Centre this year: independent Gary Law, earning 8.5 per cent of the vote; Lawrence Chen for the B.C. Conservative Party, 5.2 per cent; independent Richard Lee, four per cent; and Chanel Donovan, 0.5 per cent.

EDITORIAL: Our political system

is broken when only half vote

A

nother election has come and gone, and once again half of those eligible to vote in this province didn’t bother.

And who can blame them? In a political system where candidates like the NDP’s Gary Holman (Saanich North and the Islands) can win a seat with just a third of the popular vote, is it any wonder the majority feel like their votes don’t count?When the BC Liberals can win a clear majority in the legislature with fewer than half the votes, and thus dictate legislation

for the next four years unimpeded, is it any wonder why the other half feel completely disenfranchised? When the Conservatives can garner close to 80,000 votes and still have no representation in the legislature, is it any wonder why so many British Columbians feel like they don’t have a voice? Of course, representation means nothing in the provincial legislature if you are a member of a minority party. Because every vote in the legislature is whipped, there is no opportunity for meaningful debate, and no chance for good ideas

to be heard, should they come a member of the opposition. When a majority government consistently votes in the legislature along party lines, as every ruling party in B.C. has done for more than 60 years, then what we have is little more than a dictatorship, dressed up to look like democracy. So if every vote in the legislature is predetermined by the party in power, why have MLAs vote at all? If no meaningful debate takes place in the legislature, which is the reason it exists in the first place, and instead happens only behind closed doors by party in-

siders, why is the legislature even necessary? The provincial government could save millions in MLA salaries and pensions by doing away with this farce of an institution. Keep the building of course. It could be turned into a museum, a monument to what democracy once was. Something is very wrong with our political system, and low voter turnout is symptomatic of this. The fact is, if you’re not with the winners, you’re a loser, and your voice doesn’t matter. —Black Press

Clark’s win confounds the ‘experts’

B.C. Views

Tom Fletcher

T

he pollsters, pundits and the self-styled rebels of the B.C. Liberal Party were struggling for answers as their conventional wisdom went out the window on election night.

In came the B.C. Liberals and Christy Clark for a fourth term, with a 50-seat majority that is stronger than the one they took into the 2013 election. “Welcome to the club,” Alberta Premier Alison Redford wrote on Twitter on election night, referring to Redford’s own win in the face of a wall of polls and pontificators saying she was done. Here’s the next thing to ignore from the media experts who rub shoulders with those pollsters and political strategists. It’s all about the negative ads, they will say, and NDP leader Adrian Dix’s big mistake was to run a “positive” campaign. Rubbish. Was their long fight against the harmonized sales tax a positive campaign? Is piling on sham environmental reviews for the express purpose of killing industrial projects a positive idea? “Clearly our message didn’t get out the way we wanted it to get out,” Dix said after

Christy Clark should heed the NDP on at least one thing: move B.C.’s election dates to the fall, starting in 2017.

watching one of the biggest comebacks in Canadian political history. That’s rubbish too. He got his message out just fine, serving it up in bite-sized pieces in a classic front-runner’s campaign that cynically put off the most difficult choices. He was going to expand government, and restrict industrial development to appease urban voters. Dix’s most dramatic policy shift contributed to his undoing. Mid-campaign, in a decision that surprised even his platform co-chairs, Dix turned against the proposal to twin the TransMountain oil pipeline that winds across B.C. from Alberta to Burnaby. Well, not the pipeline itself, but the prospect of more oil tankers in and out of Vancou-

ver harbour. At least now, more people will understand that Vancouver has been an oil port for nearly a century, and that Canada’s future includes energy development. More people should also appreciate that environmental assessment is not a political game. Andrew Weaver made history as B.C.’s first Green Party MLA. He came out swinging against Clark’s economic holy grail, development of liquefied natural gas exports from the North Coast. Weaver calls LNG a “pipe dream” that will never materialize. It will be interesting to watch him as he is proved wrong on that, and then as he grapples with gas as a transition fuel that can

be used to develop clean energy infrastructure. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins ran a distant third in his Langley constituency, and his goal of a breakthrough didn’t materialize anywhere. His idea of scrapping the carbon tax on fossil fuels didn’t impress many people, despite his focus on rural and northern B.C. Clark should heed the NDP on at least one thing. Dix promised to move B.C. election dates to the fall, starting in 2017. The idea of giving his anticipated government an extra six months to govern the province was uncontroversial when Dix proposed it in his party’s election platform, so Clark will probably proceed with it. Another NDP idea Clark

should adopt is getting the corporate and union money out of election campaigns. She likely won’t, because her party’s financial advantage is too great, but the time has come for this important reform. The B.C. Liberals’ much-discussed “balanced” budget will now be put to the test over the next few months. The legislature must be convened by September to debate that budget. This should be the last vote based on an untested budget, and the first of many scheduled fall legislature sessions.

letters ‘I sent this guy to Victoria and all I got was this lousy giant sign’ Editor: Now that the applause has died down, all the back slapping and high fiven’ complete with Laurel, and Hardy handshakes given (Blazing Saddles) the real work begins. What the heck do you do with all the election signs? Back in the day they were made of plywood. Dad would support the candidate that ran election colours closest to the colour of the house—four–by–eight–foot sheets of future siding for the tool shed he would build when the 'get-round-to-it' became evident. Over the years he got enough wood to build a tool shed and half a crappy fence. Today's election signs are plas-

tic and plastic-coated cardboard, products that if used for building in a modern story of the “Three Little Pigs” would make them homeless, all toppled to pieces by a wolf blowing a lot of hot air around. Makes you wonder how they stood up through the election. Oh, sure, I guess you could wait for the elected party or the group of runner-ups to collect their once hopeful sign of a possible future in public service or... 1. Start a collection and trade them with your friends. 2. Turn it around and paint a 'For Sale' on it. (Very popular in Richmond). 3. Make it a photo op. Cut the

elected hopeful out and place your face there. 4. With their impervious qualities, have your local government collect them and place them under the future pipeline to the airport. 5. To draw a broader crowd, duct tape a bunch of signs together and make a giant slip and slide off the oval’s roof. 6. Wait a few months then paint over all but the face and name. Then in the language you're comfortable with (it's OK with city hall) write “I sent this guy to Victoria and all I got was this lousy giant sign.” Bob Niles Richmond

About those polls

Candidate says thanks

Editor: I have long had my doubts about pollsters predictions and the B.C. election has served to confirm my doubts. They have served no useful purpose to either party. An NDP prediction probably caused many NDP supporters to stay at home and the Liberals to come out and vote. The reverse could have been equally the same. No, I have to conclude that only dogs know the best use of poles! Tony Turner Richmond

Editor: I would like to thank the nearly 58,000 Richmond voters who took their place in history to offer direction to this province. I would also like to thank my supporters who gave the encouragement that carried me down the long campaign trail and my volunteers who spent many hours and put in so much effort. To the local media and the organizers of the debates,

job well done! When people vote democracy wins, and this was a victory. Right now I am going to spend some time in my garden (my apologies to my neighbours who thought we were growing hay this year) and I am going to spend some time with my family. Thanks again!

OPEN HOUSE: PlaNNiNg fOr a NEw City CENtrE Park

It was an upset in Richmond-Steveston Tuesday night, as NDP candidate Scott Stewart beat out Liberal John Yap in a mock election. Results were unveiled Tuesday of Student Vote, a parallel election program coinciding with the B.C. provincial election. Elementary and high school students from across B.C. participated, including two dozen Richmond schools. The majority of students at seven schools in Richmond-Steveston voted for Stewart, who finished with 33 per cent of the vote. Yap—who voters actually elected May 14—came up short with 28 per cent. Jerome Dickey of the Greens came close, with 22 per cent. Students cast their ballots after learning about the democratic process, researching party platforms, hosting candidate forums and debating the future of B.C. Across B.C., more than 100,000 student votes ultimately gave the NDP a majority government with 54 seats, while the Liberals finished with 20 seats, the Greens with eight and independents with three. In Richmond Centre’s mock election, Liberal Teresa Wat—who won in the real election—narrowly beat Green candidate Michael Wolfe in votes from four local elementary schools. Wat earned 35 per cent of the vote, while Wolfe finished with 31 per cent. The NDP’s Frank Huang finished a distant third, with 13 per cent. An even tighter race emerged in Richmond East, where students from 12 schools chose Liberal incumbent Linda Reid as the winner, as adults in the real election also did. Reid finished with 33 per cent of the vote, while NDP challenger Gian Sihota earned 32 per cent. Doug Perry of the Green party had 17 per cent.

Pipeline twinning, TransLink tolls stay in Liberal hands Regional issues will hinge on Clark, not NDP promises by Jeff Nagel Black Press Kinder Morgan’s proposed twinning of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline through the Lower Mainland looks more likely with the B.C. Liberals staying in power than if the NDP had won Tuesday’s election. NDP leader Adrian Dix had vowed to block a big increase in oil tanker exports from Metro Vancouver. His reversal of a previous pledge to wait for a formal project application became a major campaign issue. Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Premier Christy Clark said she believed the TV debate was the turning point of the campaign for the Liberal rebound and that the NDP’s Kinder Morgan position was a factor. Clark said voters weren’t impressed by “the idea that you’re going to say ‘No’ to economic development before you even see it.” She stressed the province will put any Kinder Morgan proposal to the same requirements as the planned Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline to Kitimat, including worldleading safeguards against ocean and land spills as well as a substantial share of benefits for B.C.’s risk. “The five conditions aren’t going to change,” Clark said. “Any expansion of heavy oil is going to have to meet those five conditions.” The Trans Mountain pipeline from northern Alberta to Burnaby has operated for more than 50 years but Kinder Morgan wants to nearly triple its flow to 890,000 barrels per day, resulting in many more oil tankers plying Vancouver harbour. Another issue that awaits Clark’s new government will be what to do with TransLink. Metro Vancouver mayors have demanded a major reform of the transportation authority’s governance structure. The NDP had promised to restore control to locally elected representatives, while the Liberals said on the campaign trail there was more right than wrong with TransLink’s

current structure. But the bigger issue for transit users is how billions of dollars will be raised to build major rapid transit extensions in Surrey and Vancouver. Mayors have sought various new revenue tools for TransLink, from an annual vehicle levy to a small new regional sales tax. Clark pledged during the campaign that any new tax or fee for TransLink would have to be approved by voters in a referendum in November of 2014, a promise that alarmed transit advocates. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who had served as vice-chair of the TransLink mayors’ council, is the newly elected Liberal MLA for SurreyFleetwood, the riding that a new SkyTrain line could pass through on the way to Langley. He said better transportation south of the Fraser

will be a priority and the government will work to clarify its vision for TransLink. Fassbender also chided his nemesis on the mayors’ council—Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan—for fomenting opposition to the Liberals in civic circles. “Derek Corrigan, on the mayors’ council for the last year, year and a half, said ‘the Liberals are toast, they’re done, it’s over. We’re going to have a new government.’ And we do have a new government,” Fassbender said, adding it’s time for all local leaders to now work together. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and other regional leaders have said some form of road pricing or broad-based tolling would be the best way to refinance TransLink for the long term. Clark, however, ruled out new tolls on existing bridges or roads during

the campaign. It remains unclear how her government will pay for major new bridge projects—such as the promised replacements of the Massey Tunnel and Pattullo Bridge—if not through more tolls. Other contentious decisions in the Lower Mainland that will be up to Clark’s new government include: •Approval of a Metro Vancouver plan, still in the works, to build a new waste-to-energy incinerator. •Approval of a new jet fuel pipeline to Vancouver airport that would bring tankers into the mouth of the Fraser River. •Whether to support or oppose further expansion of Port Metro Vancouver, from a new coal export terminal in Surrey to a massive increase in container handling at Deltaport.

community The night it all began for the Liberals in Richmond The B.C. Liberals grip on Richmond began in 1991 with all candidates from the party winning in all three ridings. This photo collage appeared on the front page of The Richmond Review on Oct. 20, 1991—three days after the provincial election. The election marked the beginning of a long political career for Linda Reid (top photo), who was re-elected this week in Richmond East. Allan Warnke won in Richmond-Steveston that year, while Doug Symons captured Richmond Centre for the Liberals. Also pictured (clockwise): Nick Loenen (Social Credit), Larry Blaschuk (Social Credit), Ron Fontaine (NDP), Blaschuk and Warnke.

prompted the precautionary move. The venue later reopened, but all Wednesday night registered sports programs were cancelled. The oval, located at 6111 River Rd., is a popular multi-sport activity centre whose visitors are drawn to a 23,000-square-foot fitness centre, two ice rinks, sport courts and running track. Other businesses and construction sites were also evacuated, witnesses told The Richmond Review. Authorities also closed nearby roads and dispatched emergency vehicles to the area.

Richmond Night Market opens tonight The Richmond Night Market opens tonight 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.

ALLERGIES GOT YOU DOWN? Service heroes honoured at Naturopathic medicine may be your answer!

S

pring us upon us and for many people this means the beginning of seasonal allergies (hayfever). Hayfever is an inappropriate immune response by the body to essentially harmless substances. Common symptoms include itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, wheezing and headaches. People often mistake these symptoms for a common cold. However, a cold will usually accompany these symptoms with a fever. Dr. Jheeta offers Standard but effective treatments Richmond over 17 years include using specific herbal medicines, of Naturopathic services homeopathic medicines and glandular substances. This treatment plan will reduce the body’s inappropriate immune response thereby treating allergies from the cause rather than treating just the symptoms unlike most over-the-counter medications. There are no side effects, dependencies, toxicities, drowsiness or rebound congestion associated with natural remedies. Recent advances in the treatment of allergies include intravenous Vitamin therapy. This involves using large amounts of specific nutrients injected directly into the bloodstream. Once again the result is relieving the body’s inappropriate immune response and subsequently alleviating the symptoms for months at a time. This treatment is an option for those patients who do not like taking pills three or four times a day for months.

Tourism Richmond Service Awards by Amanda Oye Contributor

hen you’re having a bad day there is nothing like the kindness of a stranger to put a smile back on your face.

The 5th annual Tourism Richmond Service Awards, held at the River Rock Casino Resort on Wednesday, celebrated a group of people who aim to make other peoples’ lives better every time they go to work by providing superior service. “The idea of the program is to raise the bar of customer service,” said Ed Gavsie, the director of visitor and partner services at Tourism Richmond. “You may remember the meal for a day or two but you will always remember when you received superior service,” he said.

Service employees go the extra mile, or miles, in one case From Page 20 From a man who drove from Richmond all of the way to Chilliwack to return a customer’s lost set of keys to a woman who makes sure she keeps her customers in the loop on their favourite products, all of the winners and nominees have provided service above and beyond expectations. The event, themed Up-Up and Away – Taking Service to New Heights, emphasized how providing exceptional service to customers can really make a difference. This was something each of the eight winners have discovered first hand, but possibly none more so than Madelyn Turqueza from Marquise at YVR who found a man’s wallet in a garbage can. “It’s my favourite story because of the honesty and the diligence of finding the wallet,” said Gavsie. The man was ecstatic to hear that his wallet had been found as he was just about to go through the process of replacing all of his cards. “It sort of made his Christmas,” Gavsie said. The winners were chosen by a panel of four judges, none of whom were from organizations that had nominees. This year, the number of nominations grew and included eight nominees, three of whom won, from organizations that had never had a nominee before. Anyone who works in Richmond can be nominated throughout the year for a service

award online at www.richmondserviceawards.com. The winners and nominees were: •Service Excellence in Accommodation Award: Kevin Cohen, River Rock Resort. Kevin Cohen went out of his way to purchase a big teddy bear with hearts on it for a little girl who had heart surgery. She and her family were staying at River Rock through the David Foster Foundation. His thoughtfulness brought happiness to the little girl and her family. He has purchased colouring books, crayons and puzzles and has been giving them away to little ones staying at the resort and to those waiting in the lobby. Also nominated: Manjinder Gill, Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel; Sheena Brooks, Accent Inns Vancouver Airport Hotel. •Service Excellence in Attractions Award: Ray Rulton, River Rock Casino Resort. A guest from Chilliwack called from his home to enquire about his car keys that may have left behind at the casino the night before. Ray Rulton found a set of car keys that matched the description and personally delivered the keys to the guest’s front door. Also nominated: Mike Mead, River Rock Casino Resort; Linda Gordon, River Rock Casino Resort.

Service Excellence Food and Beverage: Kristy Krull, Harold’s Bistro at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport. Kristy Krull was chosen because the judges received many nominations for her, more than any other F&B nominee in the category. Said one nominator: “We love Kristy. Beyond excellent. She is very attentive. We are truly spoiled here and that’s why we keep coming back.” Also nominated: Chris Lam, Starbucks, Chapters at Ackroyd Rd.; Bill Lymberopoulos, Monterey Greek Taverna. •Retail & Service Award: Andrea Divecha, Hudson’s Bay Company – Richmond Centre. According to one nominator: “Andrea called me last week to let me know about an upcoming promotion in her department. I had no idea this was happening. She knew me and welcomed me when I arrived. She knows her products well. As she was ringing up my sale she mentioned there was a shoe sale on and I could save an additional 15% on that as well. She is very honest, friendly, knowledgeable and eager to assist.” Also nominated: Helen Malik, Hudson’s Bay Company – Richmond Centre; Emi Higuchi, Richmond Centre Customer Service.

“It’s my favourite story because of the honesty and the diligence of finding the wallet.” — Ed Gavsie

Award: Bruce Rozenhart. Bruce Rozenhart was honoured for his behindthe-scenes work in getting the Canada Line project approved. •Extra Mile Award: Mandy Biasutti, Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel. Said her nominator: “My husband and I were on our way to an Alaskan cruise. We arrived at your airport about 4 pm. A delayed flight, missed connection in Chicago and lost luggage that we later discovered had preceded us, made for a long day when we arrived at the Fairmont Airport reception desk. We were told by our tour representative to walk to the Fairmont in the airport. Mandy Biasutti was on duty. Mandy phoned two other Fairmont Hotels but there was no reservation for us. Mandy was so helpful in trying to calm me down. She gave each of us a bottle of water and tried to call our tour company representative.

Yes. Big ones! Most of us are well aware, that as children’s teeth are developing, if they are exposed to fluoride the enamel forms much more densely. This provides the significant reduction in susceptibility to tooth decay which has been unequivocally well documented for decades. The usual way to do this is to add it to our drinking water unless the fluoride is naturally present as it is in many places. (Many people, however, get bent out of shape over the issue but the benefits are proven.) Now it seems that fluoride in drinking water provides dental benefits to adults and those never previously exposed to fluoridated water. A population-level study conducted by researchers at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill and the University of Adelaide Australia showed it prevented tooth decay for all adults. The results published in the Journal of Dental Research are based on national survey data from 3,779 adults fifteen years and older selected at random in Australia between 2004-2006. Examiners compared incidents of decay and residential histories of participants, along with fluoride levels in community water supplies. Adults who lived in greater than 75% of their lifetime in fluoridated communities showed up to 30% less tooth decay compared to the adults living less than 25% in such communities. UNC faculty member and study leader Gary Slade states “Now we show that fluoridated water reduces tooth decay in adults even if they start drinking it after childhood…more people benefit from water fluoridation than previously thought.”

The water heater is designed to distribute hot water for washing and cooking to the different faucets and fixtures throughout the home. A thermostat can be set to your desired temperature. Most often, you’ll see a large metal cylinder or drum with two pipes coming from the top (hot & cold water). It will be gas or electric powered. Failing water heaters will rust at the top and bottom, around the outer lining and/or corrosion from the supply lines. Check inside the access panel by the temperature setting for leaks. Call a plumber immediately to have it looked at before a flood happens. They should be installed by a floor drain & under a drain pan. Safety straps should be used to prevent movement. Newer, efficient models are much different and can be smaller, yet more expensive. Consider all of your options and speak to a reputable plumber.

“My Homework Is Your Protection”

Q:

If you’re like most people, you probably know of someone who has been diagnosed or suffered from a serious illness. Because of this life-altering illness, that person and their family also likely suffered from the financial impact of their condition. You may have asked yourself many times, “If I were diagnosed with a serious illness, who would take care of me and my family? Who would pay the bills?” Thanks to improvements in healthy living and medical science, there is a good chance you would recover from a serious illness and get on with your life. Critical Illness Insurance is a product that provides you with the funds needed to ease the burden of a life-altering illness, so you can focus on getting better without the disruption to your lifestyle or income.

Wedding?

Destination Weddings have become very popular over the last few years. They allow the bride and groom, as well as their friends and family, enjoy the wedding as well have a vacation – usually at a tropical destination. These weddings tend to more intimate and less stressful than ones at home. • Most hotels offer a dedicated wedding coordinator; • Some hotels offer free wedding packages; • Wedding packages include invitations, cake, photographer, flowers and more; • Free upgrades for the bride and groom; • Cultural weddings such as, Hindu, Sikh, Kosher etc.; • Group rates for friends and family travelling together. It is best to start planning your Destination Wedding at least a year in advance. Decide if you would like a symbolic wedding or an official ceremony. Obtain necessary legal documents. Take advantage of wedding registries, such as Maritime Travel’s online registry which allows friends and family to contribute towards the cost of your wedding. For more information visit www.maritimetravelregistry.ca Finally, and most importantly, enjoy your day!

Q: Are there any dental benefits for adults in communities with fluoridated water? A:

should we do to improve home security while we are away?

The first essential foundation to provide adequate protection to any property is to create ‘layers of protection’. You should have enough boundaries or obstacles which will slow down a possible intruder to a point where they may look at easier targets. The average property crime takes place in less than 3 minutes. Equally important is to increase potential detection on your property; if a would-be-intruder was scoping out properties to break-into, they will usually choose the property which has less security measures and little detection. If you work on the premise of these two principals you will significantly reduce the risk for your property being victimized; however it is important to remember that if someone wants to break-in they will have time and planning on their side and will ultimately be successful should they choose to.

Hearing loss is called the invisible disability. Over 10 times as many people cannot participate in public events because of hearing loss than due to lack of wheelchair accessibility. It’s quite often considered a nuisance rather than a disability. Hearing loss does not usually have ‘alarm bells’ like pain or blurred vision. It is real physical damage and usually permanent in all but the most unusual cases. The loss likely will get worse. People hear better for longer when hearing aids are used with earlier detection and usage always better than waiting until things are quite severe. Initially understanding and processing facts becomes more difficult. Feelings and emotions are harder to recognize in others. Personal safety awareness and driving can be a concern. Enjoyment of sounds in nature and music become off key. Hearing aids early on can help maintain connections in all these areas. Waiting until one is ‘deaf’ is not the best for a good outcome.

Q:

Q:

I just started working out and I am experiencing a great deal of muscle soreness. Is this what I have to look forward to every time I workout or should I be doing/taking something to reduce the pain and stiffness?

For an untrained or deconditioned individual, exercise, even when performed at low volume and intensity can be quite taxing. Also, muscle soreness is neither uncommon nor abnormal even in extremely fit individuals. The best ways to manage and reduce muscle soreness are: - Stretch properly before and after workouts - Perform light aerobic activity like walking, jogging, or cycling to increase circulation and bring fresh blood and oxygen to repair muscle tissue - Drink lots of water and electrolytes - Eat plenty if protein to help repair muscle tissue The good news is that the severity and duration of muscle soreness decreases as one adapts to regular physical activity. Don’t get discouraged, the first few workouts are usually the hardest. Train hard, train smart and the rest will take care of itself. Yours in health, Isaac Payne

A: This is a common fear of strata councils and owners. The fear

Checklists are an essential part of budget planning. If your strata has a complete inventory and checklist of all of your annual maintenance and service contracts, and an assigned estimate of costs for each item, it is a simple step to plan next year’s budget.

• Current tax statement • survey certificate for detached homes • permits for renovations where required • aprox. monthly amounts of municipal and utility bills (gas, water, hydro) • monthly cost of alarm system • receipts and warranties for renovations (appliances, roof, garage door, bathrooms etc) • extra set of keys/fob for access, alarm codes, keyless door codes • special instructions regarding pets • any attractive photos ie. garden/ trees blooming, sunny day photos • for strata properties, collect at least 2 years of meeting minutes, strata plan, current financial statements and bylaws, parking space and JUST locker numbers and locations.

Q: How can we educate people about

What if our Strata finds the 3 methods of funding our strata in the Depreciation Report not feasible at this time due to possible increases in strata fees or special assessments which are too restrictive for the owners to handle?

I am planning a renovation and expect it to include a fireplace. I have heard about “inserts” and “zero-clearance fireplaces” what is the difference and how does this affect my decision? Isaac Payne Personal Trainer

A:

This question is always worth discussing as the two types of fireplace products are for completely different installations. Inserts are appliances that are designed to be installed into masonry/wood-burning fireplaces and the surrounding finishes must maintain the non-combustible standard that the original fireplace held. Manufacturers build various sizes of units to target various openings, desired heating, and aesthetics. The units will have flexible liners running up to rain caps or termination at the top of the chimneys and finally they will have trims for finishing the front opening. A Zero-Clearance fireplace is designed to be installed into framed construction and can be enclosed typically with drywall and combustible material. Note that there are some instances where each fireplace has hot zones where “non-combustible” finishes must be planned for. These types of fireplaces are used in new construction and in areas where there currently isn’t a fireplace. Finally, our experience at The Richmond Firebox will allow us to assist you in your planning, ensuring that the size, style, and budget is right for your project.

Ask the Experts Q: Q: A: Because family matters.

I generally like to separate sunscreens into those that are chemical, and those that are mineral. Chemical sunscreens focus on using ingredients such as homosalate, octisalate, etc. These ingredients tend to be more sensitizing and I often recommend avoiding them if we have sensitive skin. On the flip side, mineral sunscreens use either zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to provide UVA and UVB coverage. These mineral sunscreens tend to be a little thicker but are a mainstay for children and those with sensitive skin. An example of a mineral sunscreen that I recommend are Badger Chemical-Free Sunscreen or Avene Mineral SPF 50 Cream. Both creams are very hypoallergenic. There are also some sunscreens that use a combination of chemical and mineral ingredients. These sunscreens have the advantage of providing good SPF coverage while maintaining a better consistency than mineral sunscreens. An example is La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 60 melt in cream, the number one dermatolgist recommended sunscreen in Canada. Finally, if you are looking for a moisturizer with built in sunscreen, I recommend Di Morelli Oil-Free emulsion, a sunscreen currrently recommended by the Medical Rejuvenation Center in Vancouver.

Q: As a golfer should i see a chiropractor? A: What you may not realize is the role chiropractors can play in improving your swing by enhancing your musculoskeletal

A:

The answer would be no. Under the Security Services Act of B.C. you need to be licensed as a Private Investigator. I just finished yet another case where an employer needed evidence from a laptop in order to fight what was essentially a wrongful dismissal case. By the time I got involved the laptop had been handled and examined by company IT and HR related staff. The account password was known by several persons due to poorly thought out company password policies. And the laptop had been logged into by at least one of these individuals. Remote in the cloud administrators from some overseas country had also logged into the laptop and left trace logs in key directories. Any of these reasons was enough to kill any case they may have had and it’s one I had to walk away from. A heads up to HR and company executives; IT and/or HR staff are not licensed to investigate and collect evidence on people. Only the State and licensed Private Investigators are allowed to do that. Evaluation and interpretation of evidence is best left to licensed professionals. N’uf said.

mechanics involved in your swing. Chiropractors are ideally suited to minimize spinal stress arising from the golf swing by managing spinal subluxations or misalignments in the spine, which place pressure on the delicate spinal nerves as they exit the spinal column. The golf swing by nature, places significant rotary torques on the back and requires the shoulders to move at high speeds through a wide and unusual range of motion. You can overload the spine in this torsion movement, damaging the spinal joints, the ligaments, neutral elements and even the discs. Chiropractors can ensure your spine is functioning at its optimum and minimize spinal stress to maximize your golf performance and create a healthy swing. So if you feel your golf swing is a little disconnected, or you’re seeing a few too many books and slices in your game, call Minoru Chiropractic for a thorough evaluation.

Q: Are you an expert in your field

Q:

or profession? Ready for new customers or clients?

A:

1. One way to save money and energy is if you are going away on vacation is to turn down the temperature of your water heater. 2. Be aware of what you put down your kitchen garburator after a barbecue. Most garburators are not equipped to handle corn husks, celery, banana peels and other “stringy” foods. Other items to avoid are fats or cooking oils because they can form clots in the pipes. Run cold water at full pressure for 15 seconds before and after you put anything down the disposal to flush it through. 3. Plus with the hotter weather and more outside activities it means more clothes to clean. Check your washing machine hoses for leaks or cracks and be sure to remove the dryer lint regularly to keep it working efficiently. Move your machine at least four inches from the wall to prevent hose kinking and damage.  4. Turn on your outside faucet and let it run for a few minutes to clear the pipe leading from the water supply to the outlet. Watch the flow to see if it appears unhindered, and check the visible sections of pipe for any leaks that may have occurred. 5. Sewer line backups are common this time of year due to summer rainwater entering sewer pipes via cracks. New tree root growth from the spring can also cause sewer backup issues as roots are drawn toward the sewer line as a source of nutrition. Have a plumber inspect your sewer line pipes so you will know if you are susceptible to a sewer line backup problem or if damage has already occurred. In either situation, your plumber will be able to provide you with various options for proper drain cleaning.

Wood bat classic on tap in Richmond

Chuckers hosting best in BC Bantam AAA baseball over long weekend by Don Fennell Sports Editor Featuring some of the top-ranked teams in B.C., including the host Chuckers, Richmond City Baseball’s annual Victoria Day Bantam AAA tournament promises to be a preview of this summer’s provincial championship. But as a wood-bat classic, it’s also a return to tradition. “Wood bats make for quite a different perspective on the game,” says Chuckers’ skipper Alex Klenman, an ardent baseball historian and traditionalist. “Balls don’t travel as

far off the bat, the exit speed of the bat is substantially less, and if hitters don’t square up the ball it doesn’t go anywhere. Defence and pitching are important and execution paramount. I like wood-bat baseball because it’s a truer form of the game.” Klenman, however, will also be focused this weekend (games begin Friday and continue through Monday at Blundell Field) on trying to inspire his talented young ball club. “(The tournament) is a significant part of the overall process,” he says. “We have three tournaments to basically

rehearse for the provincials and tournament play is a different beast. You need to play well and bring intensity and concentration into every inning. To succeed you need to know how to elevate and sustain a higher level of play over the course of the event. Showing well in tournament play will go a long way to building our confidence that we can get it done when it counts.” Coming off a 34-29 campaign (2-2 at the provincials) in 2012, the Chuckers are considered by some to be the favourites this season in a group that also includes the Vancouver Mounties,

Cloverdale and Abbotsford. All are scheduled to play this weekend in Richmond in a tournament further bolstered by the Okotoks (Alberta) Dawgs, one of the better programs in the country; and White Rock, a wellcoached team that Klenman says is a sleeper. Of the top five B.C. teams, only the Tri-City Indians are missing from the tournament. “To get through this field would be a major accomplishment,” he says. “However we are more interested in showing some consistency and avoid mental mistakes or letdowns.”

Richmond, scheduled to play White Rock in the tournament opener Friday at 5:45 p.m., is coming off a pair of losses to Vancouver last weekend 7-3 and 4-2. Klenman insists the Chuckers didn’t play poorly in either game, but Vancouver simply played better.

“Their defence was really solid and their pitchers threw strikes,” he says. “And they stayed away from any trouble or potential big innings.” With a 16-4 record overall, the Chuckers’record, says Klenman, is solid “despite the fact we really haven’t played to our potential.”

Ford Fusion: A hybrid with a sense of style by Rob Beintema

Ford Fusion Hybrid SE

Special to Black Press

T

BODY STYLE: mid-size five-passenger hybrid sedan DRIVE METHOD: front-engine, frontwheel-drive ENGINE: 2.0-litre iVCT Atkinson-Cycle four-cylinder HEV gasoline engine (149 hp, 129 lb/ft) mated to permanent magnet, AC-synchronous electric motor (118 hp, 177 lb/ft) for net 188 hp. CARGO: 340 litres (12 cu ft) FUEL ECONOMY: 4.0/4.1L/100km (city/ hwy); As tested 6.8L/100km (comb) PRICE: Fusion Hybrid SE $29,999; Fusion Hybrid Titanium $35,399.

he Ford Fusion has come a long way in a very short 10 years.

It was born in the guise of a 427 Concept that was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in 2003. It became a bestseller, a bread-and-butter, five-passenger, midsize mainstay that helped see Ford through the tougher years of automotive industry troubles. Since then, the car has been revised and refreshed, and the 2013 Fusion lineup adopts a new exterior style featuring a gape-mouth grille. But while we might argue about styling inspirations, the net result is a sleek and seductive silhouette, an aggressive stance, nice lines and a handsome design that looks good from any angle. Look up the word “fusion” and you will find definitions that list “blending” and “combining”, apt descriptions for a lineup that offers a multitude of choices, with naturally-aspirated and turbocharged engines, hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrain options, manual or automatic transmission choices, front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configurations and a wealth on new technologies that include Ford SYNC communications, optional auto start stop, a Lane Keeping System, adaptive cruise control, active park assist and Blind Spot Information System, to name just a few. We’re concentrating on the Fusion Hybrid in this review and the good news here is that this high-tech offering maintains the same sporty style and sophistication as its non-hybrid stalemates, while expanding on an award-winning

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE is not exactly your average fuddy-duddy hybrid. This sleek, sophisticated performer is dipped in Ruby Red and enhanced with the 18-inch wheels and sporty spoiler of an added Appearance Package.

theme with new innovations and technologies. Like all Fusions, the new Hybrid is a little bigger than its predecessor. The wheelbase has been stretched by 122 mm (4.8”) and the car is 30 mm (1.2”) longer, 86 mm (3.4”) wider and 58 mm (2.3”) taller. These dimensions bump up interior room incrementally and even add a little more luggage room, although there are still compromises made for the sake of battery storage – 340 litres (12 cu ft) of trunk space instead of 453 litres (16 cu ft), a tire mobility kit instead of a spare tire, and a smaller 51 litre fuel tank

(instead of 63 litres). The gasoline engine makes 149 hp and 129 lb/ft of torque and it combines with a permanent-magnet, AC-synchronous electric motor to make a net horsepower rating of 188 hp, marginally less than the previous model’s 191 net hp. The new lithium-ion batteries generate more power than previous nickel-metal hydride batteries and help raise the electric-only maximum speed from 75 km/h (47 mph) to 100 km/h (62 mph), opening up the potential for EV highway cruising.

Manufacturers build hybrids for fuel economy bragging rights and Ford wasted little time in claiming the midsize fuel efficiency crown, boasting that the Fusion Hybrid would outperform midsize rivals like the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. The Fusion is a pleasure to drive, perky when needed, accelerating with a smooth linear progression of power, complemented by an able electronic CVT transmission and a seamless interplay of effort from the gasoline engine and electric motor. The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is an all-round good effort, and its sophisticated collection of technologies and performance dynamics gives you a pretty good indication of why it won its class as the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s 2013 Best New Family Car Over $30,000.

Scandinavian all-wheel drive luxury, Volvo style by Rob Beintema

Volvo XC70 T6 AWD Polestar

hunder rumbled like a backline bass beat to the rhythmic slapping of the wipers.

A warm front was meeting a cold front and spring was in the air, literally, as the rain pelted down from the sky above. I was snug as a bug in my Volvo XC70. Oh, I know, any car can keep you safe and dry and out of the elements. But the XC70 was a particularly calming oasis in a storm that seemed to be beating with purpose against glass and steel. Maybe it was the new car aroma that inspired the calm—the Volvo-specific scent of premium leather that wafted from the warm embrace of heated seats. Or perhaps it was the smooth ride, the sure handling and inherent reassurance of all-wheel drive abilities. For whatever reason, when you blend those soothing sensory inputs with a few less tangible qualities, like Volvo’s legacy of dependability, its design solidity and the company’s single-minded dedication to a safety ethos, you wind up with a vehicle that can’t help but inspire confidence, comfort and maybe even some sales. Now, putting it plainly, Volvo’s XC70 is really nothing more than a station wagon pimped up with SUV pretensions. As a response to the anti-minivan backlash and the resulting sport ute craze of the 1990s, the V70 Cross Country (or XC) wagon followed the same crossover formula as the Subaru Outback—namely, jack up the

BODY STYLE: premium wagon. DRIVE METHOD: front-engine, all-wheel drive. ENGINE: 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder DOHC Twin-Scroll Turbocharged engine with Polestar tuning (325 hp, 354 lb/ft) with a fuel economy rating of 12/8.5L/100km (city/hwy). FUEL ECONOMY: 12/8.5L/100km (city/ hwy). PRICE: As tested $56,445 based on 2013 XC70 Platinum - $52,500 plus options

platform for extra ground clearance and bolt on bigger wheels and tires for a more aggressive stance and macho attitude. Like the Outback, the XC70 managed to cash in on the sport utility fever and both vehicles fought a holding action while their respective manufacturers scrambled to add actual SUVs to their lineups. But while it’s tempting to be a little flippant about the legitimacy of its origins, fifteen years later, the XC70 has proved to

have real staying power, blending wagon practicality with all-condition, all-roads, all-season abilities that have evolved with luxuries and technologies worthy of the premium wagon segment. The lineup starts at just over $40,000 and customers can choose from two engines, four trim levels, assorted option packages and a list of accessories that will soon have top-end prices edging the $60K mark.

one tank is theoretically possible. Now to clarify, the 541 kilometres was almost all highway driving at the speed limit or slightly above to stay with the flow of traffic. Mazda6 pricing starts with the GX at $24,495 followed by the GS at $28,395 and the GT at $32,195. The manual is standard and the automatic is optional. We were driving the GS automatic with the optional Luxury Package ($1,800) that includes leather trimmed upholstery, eight-way power driver seat, power driver lumbar support, leatherlike door trim and navigation system made by TomTom. Normally engines tuned to run lean also run out of steam early on, but not the Mazda6. On-ramp acceleration was about the same as the normal 2.5-litre Mazda3 my wife drives, but the road manners were more comfortable probably due to the longer wheelbase and the more flexible six-speed automatic compared to my wife’s five-speed. Skyactiv is not the first time Mazda has marched to a different beat, but based on my real life numbers, they’re proving there’s still of lot of potential left in the internal combustion engine.

get up to

with the rotary engine and made it work after all the other manufacturers including General Motors and Mercedes-Benz tried and failed. Basically Skyactiv involves gasoline and diesel engines and applying steps such as pistons with hollowed tops for better gas ignition, 13:1 compression ratio, lighter internal parts, reduced friction and the Formula One four-into-two-intoone exhaust system. New six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are dramatically lighter. In addition to the current gasoline engine we will get a 2.2-litre fourcylinder turbo diesel later this year with a range of about 1,000 kilometres. So as to not keep readers in suspense, Mazda claims fuel consumption numbers of 8.1/5.3L/100 km city/highway for the six-speed manual and 7.6/5.1L/100 km for the six-speed automatic for the Mazda6. On the Easter weekend in a Mazda6 GS with six-speed automatic I registered 6.4L/100 km or 44 mpg after covering 541 kilometres at just under half of the 62-litre gas tank. With 503 kilometres showing on the odometer I still had a half tank. From this I would say 900-plus kilometres on

Provincial Cup All-Blacks’ sixth title this season Sports Editor A three-week period in March, during which they won all three Richmond Senior Soccer Association cups they were eligible for, only served to set the table for the Richmond All-Blacks.

Having whet their championship appetite, the All Blacks went on to add the Provincial B Cup Sunday, defeating Sarajevo FC 5-0 in the final of the BC Soccer men’s tournament at Victoria’s Goudy Field. Their last match, which capped a four-game provincial playdown, was

ironically perhaps the easiest of the stretch. With two additional trophies won by the AllBlacks’ Masters Division team, the All-Blacks as a club earned a total of six cups over the course of the 2012-13 season—a league record. “It’s a pretty special feat,” said All Blacks’ veteran Kyle Shury, who plays for both the Premier Division and Masters Division teams. “This year is definitely one for the ages.” As manager of the club, Shury was instrumental in assembling the two teams. While there were several players already in place, there was still a significant turnover to start the season. Shury was careful not only to select talented players and add depth to the lineups, but more importantly to attract individuals that shared similar qualities that have enabled the All-Blacks to consistently challenge for league and/ or provincial honours since their inception in

the mid-1990s. “Having been to the provincials the last couple of seasons, and making it to the semis we knew we weren’t far off, but it’s a whole different thing to get to the final,” said Shury. “And we had a large turnover at the beginning of the year so we had to get everyone playing together.” The All-Blacks won the first of their six cups at the beginning of March, capping a single knockout round-robin played over the course of the season with a 4-1 victory over DSBH in the final of the Don Taylor League Cup. A week later, they made it two-for-two by earning the Premier Division championship, edging out rival Athletics by a single point. A week after that, they faced the Athletics in the final of the Challenge Cup and won that match 2-0. After a two-week break, which enabled the players some valuable rest, they began the march for the

Richmond All-Blacks are Provincial B Cup men’s soccer champions.

Provincial B Cup matched up yet again against the Athletics and won 3-0. Surrey Coyotes, which defeated the All-Blacks in last season’s semifinals, provided the next opposition but after the teams tied 1-1 through regulation and after almost 30 minutes of overtime the lights went out and a rematch was ordered three days later in Richmond. All-Blacks won 3-2. The All-Blacks then ad-

vanced to last weekend’s final against Sarajevo by defeating Comox 1-0 in double overtime. “One of the thing our team prides itself on its our depth and we had 19 guys (who contributed),” said Shury, who was one of a handful of players who were part of the AllBlacks’ last provincial title team in 2009. Shury is the only one who was also part of their 2005 championship.

The All-Blacks’ three provincial titles is the most ever by a Richmond Senior Soccer Association team, and the first by a local team since 2009. “I’m really proud of the team and the effort they put in this year,” said Richmond Senior Soccer Association president Steve Valenzuela. “I think this does a lot to strengthen the quality of our league and gives us some bragging rights.”

Friendships the aim at table tennis games Metro Vancouver Invitational attracts players of all skill levels to Richmond Olympic Oval by Don Fennell Sports Editor

A

fter the success of the inaugural Chinese Friendship Table Tennis Open in July 2010, local organizers quickly set out to build on the euphoria.

Their efforts resulted in the Metro Vancouver Invitational, which is now held annually at the Richmond Olympic Oval and draws participants from as far afield as Alberta and Washington state. But while chief referee Tony Shaw, who is also an ardent table tennis promotor, is elated by the event’s steady growth, he maintains the sky is the limit. The format of the Metro Vancouver Invitational appeals to all players. Even individuals who’ve never picked up a paddle before will enjoy participating in the recreation division, while top players—even those with experience in international matches—will be challenged in the competitive A Division. The B Division will test both the skills and mettle of all those players between. More than 100 players made up 41 teams at the 2013 edition of

the Metro Vancouver Invitational, hosted Saturday by the Canadian Chinese Table Tennis Federation. “We’re happy to welcome players from as far as Edmonton and Seattle, who are always anxious to participate because they love the sport and we provide the best of facilities and friendship,” says Shaw. “But they’d come from even farther away like California or even Toronto if their costs could be covered.” Shaw is also impressed by the growing number of talented young players in the sport, many of whom train at the Richmond

“There are probably three to five juniors, boys and girls both, who all have very good potential to be on the national team.” — Tony Shaw

Don Fennell photos Andy Chen, 10, trains at the Richmond Olympic Oval’s table tennis centre of excellence. He’s one of a growing number of talented young players who world-renowed referee Tony Shaw (who oversaw last weekend’s Metro Vancouver Invitational) believes have bright futures in the sport.

Olympic Oval through the table tennis centre of excellence. Table tennis lessons range from beginner to expert, with coaches focusing on all technical aspects from serving and footwork to developing strong

forehand and backhand skills. The success of the oval program was apparent in the final results of Saturday’s event as members of the oval’s junior program combined to finish first in the recreation division. “There are probably three to five juniors, boys and girls both, who all have very good potential to be on the national team,” says Shaw. “It now depends greatly on if their parents want to spend the time and money (for them to train).” But in as much as the Canadian Chinese Table Tennis Federation is anxious to help develop local players, building bridges between cultures is also an important goal. Federation president Claude Tchao says making friends through the sport is always a primary objective of the invitational.

River District opens weekly farmers market

Spring brings visitors to outdoor market Southeast Vancouver is welcoming summer with the weekly farm market at River District, ParkLane Homes’ waterfront community that covers 130 acres and includes homes, shops, green space, restaurants and community amenities. The first market took place on May 4, and saw more than 500 people come out to wander the market and purchase some goodies. “The incredible turnout is a testament to the diversity and quality of this year’s farm and artisan vendors,” says Yosh Kashara, General Manager of Sales and Marketing at ParkLane Homes. “We couldn’t be happier with the support

from the community.” Market visitor and local resident Jonathan Murkin was excited to see the market open this year. “We’ve been waiting for the market to open,” he says. “It’s a great addition to the neighbourhood.” Among the items being sold at the market are fruits and vegetables, breads, flowers, skin care and jewellery. The farm market will take place every Saturday between May 4 and October 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kerr Street Plaza. For a full list of vendors participating at the market and for more information, visit www.riverdistrict.ca

Sunny Birch Bay

Finding old-fashioned flavour at Shorewood Cottages By Kerry Vital

Everyone has fond memories of their childhood summer vacations, spending time with family and friends and playing outside for hours. Now you can make more memories with Shorewood Cottages, just minutes from the Canada-U.S. border in Birch Bay. “You get the best of both worlds,” says Chris Hughes, a local RE/ MAX broker who grew up in West Vancouver, and a partner in Compass Point Project Marketing. “It’s relaxed and quiet when you get here, but you can be at the beach in two minutes.” Shorewood is located on a sunny plateau with over eleven acres total and seven acres of private parkland and trails, so outdoor activity will be a large part of your life. There will also be picnic areas, a bocce ball court, a community herb garden, an ocean lookout with a fire pit (called Sunset Point) and a clubhouse with an outdoor pool and hot tub. The picturesque setting includes a stream behind many of the cottages and ocean views from the front of the property. Hughes notes that the property is very dog-friendly, for those who could never leave man’s (or woman’s) best friend behind. The cottages themselves are homes

away from home, with stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, a cozy fireplace and hardwood flooring. Outside, you’ll find West Coast Craftsmen architecture and a private patio. There are a variety of two- and three-bedroom floorplans available, ranging from 1,082 to over 1,500 square feet. The cottages “are high-end from a finishing perspective, but exceptional value,” Hughes says. “These are real residences you can stay in all year round.” The location is the biggest draw for buyers. The famous C Shop, which sells candy, pizza, baked goods and other treats, is a minute away, along with miles of Birch Bay beachfront, restaurants and cafes, and plenty of outdoor activities. You’ll also find Birch Bay State Park and boat launch, water

slides, go-carts, mini-golf and several golf courses nearby. “There are a ton of things to do,” Hughes says. “Most weekends you’ll find something going on.” Among those things are arts and music festivals, fireworks, the Birch Bay Marathon, parades, sandcastle contests, car shows and many other events. Plus crabbing, clamming and fishing are lots of fun for the family and great for dinner! “We’re just 12 minutes from the border,” says Hughes. “You can come down with the family for the entire summer or just for the day.” He also notes that if you’re not able to come down to the cottage yourself, you can rent it out to other families

looking for a beach getaway. The developers of the property include two Canadian families, and most of the buyers so far are from the Lower Mainland. “You can’t touch this price anywhere in the Lower Mainland,” Hughes says. “It’s much more affordable to buy in the U.S. Plus, there’s a minimal amount of legal fees (and) no property purchase tax.” Cottages at Shorewood start in the low $200,000s. For more information, visit www.shorewoodcottages.com, email info@shorewoodcottages.com or call 1-888-255-8121. The show cottages are open Wednesday through Sunday between noon and 4 p.m. or anytime by appointment.

These are real residences you can stay in all year round,” says Chris Hughes of Compass Point Project Marketing.

Submitted photos

The cottages at Shorewood are built in a West Coast Craftsmen style, above, with plenty of natural light, cozy stone fireplaces, left, and a variety of two- and three-bedroom floorplans. The beach is just two minutes away, top, so outdoor activity will be an integral part of your life.

Ferris Elementary held a Celebration of the Arts last month. Proud students, parents and teachers enjoyed a wonderful display of artwork, music and dance. The Celebration of the Arts included a gallery walk, five stage performances, and an evening concert featuring choir, bands, hip hop dance and individual performances. Student talents were enjoyed by a capacity crowd who were amazed by the confidence and ability of each performance.

Kudos is a weekly feature showcasing announcements, achievements and good deeds happening around town. E-mail submissions to news@richmond review.com

A traditional Chinese Dragon Dance officially opened the newest Sprott Shaw College campus in Richmond as students, faculty, dignitaries and members of the public gathered to celebrate. Since 1903, Sprott Shaw has provided relevant skills for jobs in business, health, tourism and trades. The campus is located at 7920 Cambie Rd.

Richmond Chinese Community Society hosted the Asian Heritage Fair/Doors Open Richmond on Sunday, May 5 at Lansdowne Centre. There were more than 30 Asian cultural and community booths and traditional Asian performances.
