elcome to our sixth annual Best of Richmond edition. The Best of Richmond is our biggest edition of the year and certainly the one we most enjoy putting together. It’s a chance for us to take a break from news beats to take a snapshot of the many things we love about this community. Many “best ofs” came to us through our day-to-day work, but a lot of eating and shopping went into our lists. We’ve also asked some of our readers what they like best about the community.

And readers took part as well in our annual Best of Richmond Reader’s Poll, where you got to pick your favourite things in Richmond. The top finisher in each category gets to place a funky Best of Richmond sticker in their store. Congrats to all the winners! And a special thanks to this year’s models Lorie Leung and Tyler Yip. The photos were taken by Richmond photographer Richard Lam (aka the guy who took the kissing couple photo during the Stanley Cup riot). The cover was designed by James Marshall.

• Play lacrosse, ball hockey, roller hockey or indoor soccer • Start a league or organize a tournament • Get extra practice time for your sports team • Host a birthday party or other special event For available times, costs and details, call 604-448-5366.

My Best of Richmond

Better Grades Happier Kids

Clare Scott Born in England, her father—who was in the RAF—brought his young family to Richmond to be close to the airport where he worked as a commercial pilot for CP Air. Clare grew up in Richmond on a small blueberry farm with chickens and fresh vegetables. She attended Palmer Jr. high school and graduated from McNair. While she lived away in Los Angeles for schooling, and lived in both Vancouver and North Delta, she is happily settled in Steveston with her two teenagers. She works as a full-time high school teacher in Richmond, and a part-time photographer —for fun! What do you like best about Richmond? “Even though Richmond has grown so much over the years, it still has that community feeling. I love the fact that I teach in the same school that the children of people I went to school

Grade 1 - 12

with attend! (Even my own children attend the school I teach at—by choice!) “The location of Richmond is ideal for my lifestyle. The mountains are close by, and I can appreciate them out my window, the ocean and river are right outside my door, the dyke is easy to access and entertainment is just a close drive, walk or cycle away! There is always something happening in Richmond, whether it be arts, cultural, or just community related, and it’s advertised so well. I am so proud to call Richmond my home.” What’s the best place to take out-of-towners? “Steveston Village, hands down. There is so much to offer, from fine dining, beautiful scenery and great shopping...” Best lunch? “So many places to go and taste delicious food

in Richmond. The Flying Beaver on the river on a nice day, a delicious sandwich at Cannery Row in Steveston, or fish and chips wrapped in a newspaper cone at Pajos on the beach. The No. 5 Road Keg still makes the best steak, ever since I worked there as a teenager!” What do you miss most about old Richmond? “My dad used to take us to Garry Point when it was just sand dunes, and take us fishing!

My Best of Richmond

THE DEAR ANIMAL HOSPITAL

Arlene Kroeker

What do you like best about Richmond? “Farmland. Farmers. Farmers Markets. Farm School. Farm advocates (I miss Arzeena Hamir and the late Mary Gazetas). “ What’s the best place to take out-of-towners? “I take guests to the Flying Beaver. They order a halibut or salmon burger and watch life on the river. The entertainment includes the launching of seaplanes. With cameras in hand, Finn Slough is the next stop. Then the Steveston Fish Market on the wharf for spot prawns, a farm market for local German potatoes, and other seasonal produce, and a final stop at Sanduz Winery for local wine. “ Best lunch? “On a grey or wet day – pho, at Pho Lan (No.3 Road near Granville). Vietnamese noodle soup with rice noodles, thin slices of raw beef, plate of fresh bean sprouts, and basil with a wedge of lime. Add a splash of hoisin sauce and hot sauce and voila, the day feels a bit brighter. On occasion when the skies are blue and the temperature warm, it’s all about a picnic. In Steveston I pick up sausage, cheese, and a mini baguette or two at D Original Sausage Haus, a treat at Sweet Spot Bakery, and head to Garry Point Park or Terra Nova Rural Park for a picnic.” What do you miss most about old Richmond? “I was a year old when my family moved to Richmond so I have watched

the city grow. There are a few things I don’t miss such as ditches. What I do miss are the friendly neighbourhoods—the days before fences and gates were installed on the faux mansions, the days before we imported and exported children for ADVERTISING FEATURE play dates. “

“Richmond is famous for parkland, but in the downtown core, the Golden Village, the colour green is missing. Concrete above (condos and Canada Line) and below (sidewalks, parking lots, roads) makes for a dreary walk or drive. I’d like to see planning include pockets of green space (and not just on top of condo parkades).”

What do you like best about Richmond? “That’s a tough one. There are a lot of things to love about our great city. Other than our fabulous diversity, I would have to say the incredible job our community centres do. My children grew up at Cambie Community Centre, and we still have very strong connections with the people that make that centre so special. Living in a different part of Richmond now, I frequent South Arm for yoga, badminton, and the gym. I get the same welcoming feeling there. Oh, and then there is the beautiful job the City of Richmond does in planting flowers in the medians. Do I really have to stick to one?!” What is the best place to take out of towners? “For a ride in your car. Where else can you see cows, llamas, blueberry fields, the river, the mountains, fishing boats, and airplanes landing, all in a twenty minute drive? Richmond is a smorgasbord for the senses.” Best lunch? “Mayfair Lakes Golf Course. Tucked in just off No. 7 Road, you can feel the calm as you drive down the beautiful winding driveway. The food is fabulous, the outside patio is so serene, and the service is wonderful. Ashley is one of my favourite servers. She is so great!” What do you miss about the old Richmond? “Hands down, Delta Farm Market. Eric and Hannah Hoegler and their daughter Lizzy were the epitome of community. A small roadside fruit and vegetable stand on 5 Road just north of Cambie. You could miss it in a blink, but once you stopped

Best thing you would like to see in Richmond? “A great grocery store that carries lots of organics and local foods. A Choices Market tucked nicely in the northeast end of Richmond would be ideal. Though I don’t live in that end of Richmond anymore, I would happily make the trek. I really feel East Richmond needs a quality, accessible, grocery store.”

Best lunch? “The Cannery Café. They have a wonderful menu. There’s so much to choose from! It’s a comfortable, homey environment and the food is delicious!”

Best thing you’d like to see in Richmond? “My answer actually came true a few weeks ago. I work at Bells Bake Shop in Steveston and we are very environmentally conscious, which in turn has made me more conscious at home as well. I made my family start composting, and it just made me wonder how great it would be if every home in Richmond started composting and what a difference it could make. And then on my way out of the house one day I saw a group of people driving by and dropping off the big green bins at every door stop. It’s such a small task, but can make a big change!”

What do you like best about Richmond? “I love that you could be driving in the busy, hectic area of downtown, running errands or something. But then just down the road you can head to the dyke where you can just relax and have a quiet, peaceful walk. Richmond is always changing and evolving, but there are so many natural and scenic spots hiding away.”

My Best of Richmond Leah Thom Leah Thom founded the Facebook group “You grew up in Richmond, BC if you remember...” www. facebook.com/groups/ retrorichmond.bc/ What do you like best about Richmond? “Richmond is truly a beautiful city. Even though it has grown so much in a short amount of time, we still have a decent amount of green space, parks, seasonal flowers planted, trails, and natural spaces to enjoy. One thing I love about Richmond is the amount of sunshine that we get compared to other cities. I can’t help but feel a sense of gratification when I see dark rain clouds hovering over the North Shore, yet our skies by the water are clear and sunny.” What’s the best place to take out-of-towners? “Although Steveston village has changed a lot, especially in the

Visiting Richmond on August 28, 2013

last few years, I still take out-of-towners there because of its remaining heritage. There are still some independent shops that have stood the test of time and I enjoy the many diverse restaurants there. Steveston has tried really hard at keeping things indie as much as possible (with a few exceptions of certain chains) and I appreciate that. Explaining how the pedestrian scramble crosswalk at No. 1 Road and Moncton works is always interesting too. Garry Point is a great place to enjoy a picnic, or to walk off that meal you just had in the village. The trails along the dyke are great too and I love living close by them for a scenic walkabout.” Best lunch? “Recently added to my favorites list is Steveston Village Vietnamese Restaurant. One of my favorite comfort foods is a good bowl of pho and I am always on the hunt

for the best slurp. The restaurant itself is very clean, bright, and the service is fantabulous! Just this past weekend, I took my father there (who lives out-of-town) and he really enjoyed his lemongrass chicken meal, which is also a good choice if you’re not into pho. Their spring rolls are quite good too. Haven’t gone through the whole menu, but everything else looks just as delicious.” What do you miss most about old Richmond? “One of the many recreational places I miss going to is Stardust

Roller Rink and I know many other people that feel the same way. If we had one in Richmond today I would definitely go there often - as long as there are good quality quads for people to rent. I went to a rink in Surrey for a public skate a few months back and the rentals were hard plastic skates with no ankle support. I’d take those ol’ leather brown skates any day. Quad skating is peeling off its polyester shirt and disco affiliations to connect with all things hip and urban in the 21st century and with that, I am currently on the search for a good pair of recreational skates, and a business partner to build a new roller rink with (*wink*). “What I also miss is the closeness within the community, especially closer to home. Back in the day, we knew all our neighbours. Even those further down the street. We weren’t afraid to ask for help in the garden, or borrow that cup of sugar. We chatted over the fences, attended each other’s barbecues and parties, were trusted —no question— with a house key to feed the cat when the owner went on vacation, and as kids we had a place to go to if we needed help (or a babysitter). We are now living in a fast society, and where neighbours spoke or phoned, they now text and email, so no opportunities for a little fresh air and good conversation. I am grateful to know a few of my neighbours on a first-name basis but it makes me a little sad to know most people don’t know who is living next door to them. “ Best thing you’d like to see in Richmond? “We need to protect, preserve, and support our existing farm lands, while seeking opportunity to expand. This is a major part of our heritage and it would be sad to lose it due to lack of space and interest for the future. The residents of Richmond have been given the opportunity to voice their opinion on what to do with the green space along Garden City, and I would like to suggest we use it for agricultural use (perhaps a community farm?) and education for the current and future farmers of Richmond. “

St. Alban’s, now St. Alban, on St. Albans.

Best plural perplexity St. Alban’s Anglican Church is a wonderful historic place of worship in the heart of Richmond, and its name offers plenty of puzzlement for grammar gumshoes. St. Alban’s Anglican Church is located on St. Albans Road and more accurately known as St. Alban Anglican Church. Apparently, the bishop has nixed the church’s possessive. Brass at city hall, meanwhile, seem content with convention for the long-established road.

A mute swan at Britannia.

Best moot point The mute swans that nest at Britannia Heritage Shipyard are used to curious onlookers and camera flashes. And since Britannia visitors have been respecting their nest, these rowdy birds are keeping to themselves. Several years ago, wildlife officials captured and

relocated some of these stately Steveston birds. The remaining population was told to behave. With no recent attacks reported from swans—known for being particularly aggressive during nesting season—we can safety call these mutes moot.

Best attempt to pretty up ugly The Canada Line’s abrupt concrete end on No. 3 Road is ugly and boring. It almost looks like the line should keep going. You know, like investing more money into efficient public transportation systems— ones that people would really use and get out of their cars for. But since that won’t be happening anytime soon, city hall has another solution: public art. The idea is to install temporary public art projects at the guideway’s end. They’ll have to be pretty hulking and colourful to notice up there, but since TransLink can’t even afford to send buses to Mitchell Island, art will have to do.

It looks like a giant LiteBrite board. Except this isn’t some 1967 Hasbro world, it’s downtown Richmond. At Westminster Highway and No. 3 Road, Perpetual Sunset is hard to miss. Made of 40,000 reflective coloured sequins designed to catch natural light, this public art project was designed by the Instant Coffee artist collective last year. The project is essentially a 12-by-24-metre mural that echoes the setting sun—even at sunrise.

BEST PLACE TO VOLUNTEER

A small and relatively unknown pocket park off River Road north at No. 7 Road has a spectacular old pier with the markings of a former railroad. The pier juts out into the North Arm, where log booms and tug boats rule. Across the water, visitors can also easily see Vancouver, which has managed to open up some of its former industrial riverside landscape in the form of Riverfront Park. Getting to the Richmond green space just takes a short whiteknuckle drive down a narrow strip of River Road popular with semi-trucks.

In the old days of Richmond—really old days—an interurban tram connected Steveston to downtown Vancouver. It made several stops on Lulu Island, including one across from the Garden City lands called Rifle Range. There was reason for the name. In the early 20th century the Vancouver Rifle Range operated on the lands, which are now owned by the city and subject of an Ideas Fair on Saturday. For years gun enthusiasts and soldiers-in-training fired shots. But flying bullets in what is now a growing urban area wouldn’t exactly work today. Neither would the Rifle Range name work for a transit line named after a country known for gun control.

Last year, the Richmond Caring Companies program, which is presented by Volunteer Richmond, the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, and Ashton Service Group, launched its first ever Day of Caring. More than 100 volunteers from nearly a dozen Richmond businesses went off to the Sharing Farm in Terra Nova with shovels and hoes in hand, and spent the day digging, weeding and planting. Next weekend, more caring companies will be back at the Sharing Farm for the second annual Day of Caring: Back In Motion, Beavis Wong & Associates, Innovation Networks, Misty Mountain Specialties, Opacity Design Group, Sandman Signature Hotel & Resort Vancouver Airport, and Sutton Group – Seafair Realty. If you wish to be part of the Richmond Caring Companies program, the next one starts in September. Call 604-279-7020 or visit www. volunteerrichmond.ca.

How many times have you seen it? A driver chatting on the phone, and holding up traffic at an intersection light that’s just turned green. Or someone repeatedly changing lanes without signaling, and then speeding away. These are times when you wish a police cruiser was right next to you to witness this. But there is something you can do about it. If you believe the driver is driving dangerously, simply call 911, and take note of the make and model of car, and ideally the licence plate and location. Richmond Mounties take great pride in the no-call-too-small philosophy of policing. If they can’t find the car, based on your description, they’ll visit the registered owner at home, and give them a warning, or in cases where they are belligerent, a traffic ticket. If everyone does their part, maybe we can all chip away, one driver at a time, at Richmond’s reputation as having some of the worst drivers in the Lower Mainland.

Best political fumble Richmond MP Alice Wong’s decision last year to slurp shark fin soup at a press conference to which only Asian media were invited left a lot of locals scratching their heads. The first misstep was the decision to enjoy a serving of the soup despite the growing public outrage about the cruel practice of definning sharks—some of which are on the threatened and endangered species lists—and tossing them back into the sea. The second brain cramp was asking only non-English media. Wong and her communications specialist suggest it was simply a mistake to not invite the Englishspeaking media.

Best place to walk down memory lane with a mouse For those who miss the days of Richmond Square, Lansdowne racetrack and Grauer Store, the City of Richmond Archives has a great photo search service on its website. It includes photos from the early days of Richmond, fishing boats galore, aerial shots from the 1970s and much, much more. It’s at www.richmond.ca/cityhall/ archives/search/datasearch/PhotoSearch. aspx, or better yet, just google “Richmond Archives photo search.” There’s also a popular Facebook group looking back at Richmond lore called “You grew up in Richmond, BC if you remember...” Find it at www.facebook.com/ groups/retrorichmond.bc/

Best evidence people vote for the party, not the candidate The NDP hasn’t elected an MLA in Richmond since 1972 and hasn’t been competitive since 1991. In recent elections, last-minute candidates and neglect from party headquarters didn’t help the party’s fortunes in Richmond, especially since many of the Liberal candidates were cabinet material. This election seemed different—there were a lot more resources on the ground, leader Adrian Dix visited and the NDP even had two candidates declared or nominated well in advance—Gian Sihota and Scott Stewart. Stewart in particular impressed a lot of people with his campaign—he worked hard and did a lot of door knocking. However, when the votes were counted on election night, the NDP barely improved its vote total over 2009 in RichmondSteveston.

Best acronym the legislature could have enjoyed On the election trail this spring, Gary Law emerged with a unique campaign slogan. Law ran as an independent in Richmond Centre after being bounced from the Liberals in favour of Teresa Wat. Wat ultimately won the seat with 49.9 per cent of the vote, while Law finished well behind with 8.5 per cent. But Law had a clever gimmick, which, unfortunately for him, never took off. At an all-candidates meeting early in the campaign, he urged voters to remember his name L-A-W: Loyal, Accountable and Wholehearted. All that was good enough to give the RCMP officer the most votes of independents, but that’s about it. With two letters in common with Wat, perhaps now Law could counsel the rookie MLA to arrive at an acronym of her own.

Tram No. 1220 has had quite a history. Built in 1911, it began operating in 1913. Originally one of the trams that operated on the Steveston-to-Vancouver interurban line, it was decommissioned in 1957 when society decided that travelling in Ford Skyliners made more sense than transit. The tram wound up with the Royal B.C. Museum and was purchased by the Steveston Interurban Restoration Society in 1993 (for $1) and was moved to Steveston Park in 1995. The society began restoring the tram, but in 2001, threatened to move the tram to Surrey, much to the city’s ire. Threatened lawsuits ensued. Next, developer Dana Westermark proposed building a tram barn in his London Landing development and a proposal was floated to have the tram run between said barn and Steveston. Those who had moved into the recently redeveloped B.C. Packers site were alarmed at the prospect of having a tram run across their front yard and the proposal was ultimately turned down, amid more drama between various parties. In 2006, the city finally gained undisputed ownership by buying the tram for $400,000 (it was in much better shape than it was in 1993 by this point). And finally this year, the tram was moved to its new home, a brand spanking new tram barn in Steveston Park. Total cost for the tram barn plus new restoration: $2 million. It’s been quite a journey for Tram No. 1220, but this one piece of history has had an incredible survival streak.

Ever been to Fedoruk Kartner Park? We bet a lot of Richmondites never have. It’s a small park located at the corner of Fedoruk and Kartner in East Richmond, off of Westminster Highway not too far from No. 7 Road. It features a small playground for kids and a trail that appears to go to nowhere—except when you follow the trail, it bends around a corner to a hidden area that features more green space, including a lone rhododendron bush and a picnic bench. The surrounding neighbourhood is cute and serves as a reminder of what a lot of neighbourhoods in Richmond used to look like.

Back in earlier times, Richmondites had a simpler, less poetic method to naming our roads. There was No. 1 Road. And No. 2 Road. And just to show the settlers weren’t being scatological, along came No. 3 Road. And so on. Roads were also named after settlers and memories of the Old World. There were other concepts: Let’s use the suffix ‘mond. Let’s use the prefix Sea. How about sea birds? But when approaching the magnificent Richmond Olympic Oval, it’s nice to see the city recalling the days of yore by naming the road to the underground parking lot Road C.

Best sand dunes this side of Oregon In recent years piles of preload have become ubiquitous in City Centre. But crews are creating veritable sand dunes in the Capstan area, where developers are promising to raise an entirely new neighbourhood from land that once contained some of Richmond’s oldest houses. With all these sand piles of preload just sitting there waiting for the earth to compress, how developers have overlooked the revenue potential of dune buggy racing is beyond us.

No. 9 Restaurant has operated comfortably at Lansdowne Centre mall for awhile. But it faces competition with No. 1 Shanghai Cuisine. Both No. 9 and No. 1 are on No. 3 (Road). The difference is No. 1 plates up Shanghainese cuisine 14 hours a day while No. 9 plates up all kinds of cuisines 24 hours a day. And since No. 9 has a website, it wins in self promotion with these war cries: “I don’t have to worry about where to go when I’m hungry at night…” and “One visit to No. 9 Restaurant, it will make you full for the whole day.”

Lindsay Anderson has been diligently blogging about Richmond restaurants for the past year on behalf of Tourism Richmond. She has a loyal following, and her detailed accounts and photos posted online serve as a great way for locals and tourists to discover new local spots to dine out. In February, she made a discovery that isn’t exactly food—well, depending on the chef. She found rabbits on the rooftop garden at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel. It’s quiet up here on Floor 8, and—on Anderson’s visit—deserted except for when those wascally wabbits pop out of the bushes.

Best new low for criminals Criminals, fraudsters and vagrants never cease to lower the bar in their quest to run afoul of the law. But during last year’s harvest, a deep-rooted crime came to our attention for the first time. Potato thieves dug up an estimated 2,250 kilograms of a Richmond farmer’s crop in South Richmond. The taken taters came from an area the size of a football field. Just where the stolen spuds ended up is a mystery. Thieves left few clues for investigators who no doubt fanned out to hand rake the field for evidence. Was it a contingent of cooks, a rig of retailers or a pair of party planners? We’ll likely never know.

Best it’s really not a food court In 2011, Richmond Centre announced that the movie theatres (remember them?) would be closing and the sizable area would be the new home to the food court. Except it wouldn’t be a food court, but a “Dining Terrace.” At the time, “Dining Terrace” just sounded like a fancy

name for a food court, especially since many of the current tenants were making the move upstairs. But lo and behold, once the Dining Terrace opened last November, there was no mistaking it for a food court. The mall spent $30 million on renovations, featuring a United Nations

of dining options among the 18 food retailers, posh seats, an upscale feel, hand washing basins in the midst of the eating area, bigger washrooms—including a family room and a nursing room—and a complete recycling area for plastics and organic waste.

Enjoy the BEST of both worlds! Thank-you Richmond for your votes in the Best Ethnic Grocery Store Category.

We are also proud to be recognized chain wide as the Overwaitea Store of the Year and our manager Paul Cope has been chosen Store Leader of the Year.

Best place for a farm to land We’re not agrologists or soil experts, but we’re willing to bet that food would grow pretty well on Sea Island. In fact, the isle was farmed before the airport touched down. But with the Vancouver Airport Authority’s appetite for expansion that has little to do with flying airplanes, real estate here is being quickly gobbled up. A luxury outlet mall, a Canada Post facility, new hotel and business park are all in the cards for the island. But this is the land of opportunity. How about tilling some of Sea Island’s soil and growing food to supply the airport’s vendors and airline caterers? Imagine the experience travellers would be treated to—the opportunity to eat food grown on airport land. We can imagine the menu already: Burkeville Beet Salad, Grant McConachie Way Grass Fed Beef with Sea Island Squash and Templeton Station Turnips, and Russ Baker Way Raspberry Parfait.

Best Filipino fare For Richmond’s large and growing Filipino community, the city’s unmatchable selection of Asian eateries includes Filipino fare at Kumare Restaurant and Bakery, at 8130 Park Rd. The barbecue pork and chicken skewers are excellent, the Sinigang sour soup is delicious and certainly reminiscent of home for ex-pats, and their menu of fish dishes are delightful. As far as grocery stores go, Tindahan Grocery, on Minoru Boulevard at Westminster Highway, has everything you’re looking for to handle that Filipino craving. The store has managed to maintain a loyal following, despite increased competition from other giant grocery store chains who have clued in to the significant local demand for made-inManila goods.

When celebrating a special occasion, who doesn't reach for a 750 millilitre bottle of Baby Duck sparkling wine? Sure, the professional quaffers struggle to give it one star out of five, but this little bottle of sweet celebration rings in at a mere $6.99. If, however, the occasion is something bigger—and thus calls for a slight improvement in the celebratory beverage— Vancouver International Airport might have the right stuff. Last fall airport brass invited bagpipers to mark the arrival of four bottles of one of the oldest and most expensive whiskies in the world. World Duty Free priced these bottles of Glenlivet 70 at $35,888 each. Or the price of 5,134 bottles of Baby Ducks.

The Best of Richmond Food

Best unserved promise of healthy food The City of Richmond’s vision is “to be the most appealing, livable, and well-managed community in Canada.” It’s an admirable goal, and to accomplish it, city hall is pulling out all the stops in looking after your health and wellness. When council considered adding food trucks or carts to the intersection of No. 3 Road and Westminster Highway, it put out a call for vendors whose menus

offered food that’s “healthy and grown locally”—and packaged with environmentally-friendly materials to boot. So city council endorsed a plan to bring hotdogs and cheesesteak sandwiches to the intersection for citizens to enjoy. Although Japadog and Falso Philly Cheese Steak were the only two food vendors to apply, we’re betting neither menu will be particularly healthy or local.

Tia has witnessed many changes in Steveston over the years. The introduction of the Tall Ship Festival in 2002 and the construction of the beautiful new boardwalk along the the river are two that stand out most to her. While she enjoys looking back to remember how Steveston and Pajo’s have grown up together; she also looks forward to being a part of Pajo’s future. Tia is married now and has kids of her own, but she feels deeply that Pajo’s is not only part of her story, but part of her family too. “I want to thank Pat for the many wonderful years…” Well, Tia, we’re delighted that you are a part of our family too.

Inside Parker Place is a small Vietnamese food vendor, Lai Taste—the one right next to the call-it-likeit-is eatery Yummy Yummy. Lai Taste has lots and lots and lots of choices, every one of them displayed in a photograph at the front counter. It’s all inexpensive, and the sandwiches are quite portable, making it a lovely spot for takeout. Drivers must, however, brave one of Richmond’s busiest lunchtime parking lots to get here. But we digress. On to the fish sandwich, a long filet of battered fish topped with fixings and sauce that spill out of the bun. At $3.95 this may be the cheapest submarine in town.

It’s hardly haute cuisine, but the chicken fingers and fries at the Cactus Club, along with its delightful honey mustard sauce, is a fine example of something simple made right. Breaded perfectly, and both moist and tender, it’s a menu item that’s a surefire hit with even the pickiest eater. The honey mustard sauce is so good, you’ll be tempted to use it for dipping the french fries too.

Richmond-raised singer Alexandria Beck built her career as a classical-crossover opera artist. But earlier this year we saw her versatility in creating a pop album, Sound of Freedom, in support of Canadian Forces

members. More recently, Beck has become ÁLI, who says her new genre is your call. "New and old, pop and opera; everyone and everything is connected in the Universe of ÁLI," according

to her Facebook Page. Her debut song and video, "Cocoon," shows Beck—who previously sang at Harrods Department Store in London—adorned with fur and horns, and singing in a forest.

Best idea to grow space for arts It was once known as just another room in the Richmond Cultural Centre—a large space on the main floor across from the library's entrance. The name Lecture Hall soon became attached to it, and it was a great place for lectures. But the city recently transformed the space with some black paint, modern equipment and a

new name: the Performance Hall. Now it's not only is the space good for lectures, it's ideal for film screenings, concerts and even theatre. If, as the late Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky said, art is a hammer with which to shape the world, artists now have another place in Richmond to make some noise.

Best of Richmond! NALIST I F

It goes like this: A group of new immigrants eager to contribute to Richmond's cultural legacy started a film festival, and it was good. It's not easy, or cheap, to start an annual festival and to have the passion to carry it through each year. But Cinevolution Media Arts Society is defying the odds by continuing to grow its Your Kontinent international film and media arts festival with support from the City of Richmond. Regular screenings and multimedia events leading up to the summer event (this year July 19 to 27) are a positive boost to the city's arts and culture scene.

When the city rebuilt Fire Hall No. 2 in Steveston, it asked Blake Williams to jazz it up a bit. The artist came up with Roots of our Future, which stands outside the No. 2 Road hall, but which is nonetheless easy to miss. Driving by you might notice the wave-like form of the sculpture. But look closer and you’ll see 3,800 handcut pieces of glass individually installed on the work to honour the past and present of Richmond Fire-Rescue and the Steveston community. On each side is an image of a Pacific crab apple tree containing texts derived by the artist from City of Richmond Archives oral histories, providing a fascinating glimpse into the lives of those who make up the community. Fire Hall No. 2 is at 11011 No. 2 Rd.

Best amateur photographer For those who frequent the Twitterverse, beautiful images Chin (@iPhilFlash) tweets about often show our city in ways we don’t normally see it. Armed with a Canon 5D Mark III, a 28-105mm zoom and a 400mm telephoto—a Christmas present he bought for himself, he says—Chin’s handiwork has on numerous occasions graced the front pages of The Richmond Review, whether it’s ABC TV drama Once Upon a Time or the Hollywood blockbuster Godzilla. So what kindled his love for photography? His mother bought him a Kodak Hawkeye camera when he was a child. “I’ve been photographing on and off ever since. More so now that I’m retired,” he said. A former darkroom worker at Pacific Press, his job became obsolete with the advent of digital photography. But is he bitter about that? Nope. “Haha...I much prefer the digital world.”

Best piano to tickle Richmond The Steinway and Sons Model D Horowitz piano, a nine-foot grand and one of Steinway's most revered designs, arrived at Tom Lee Music on No. 3 Road last winter. For one week, local pianists and piano enthusiasts (we speak for poor-piano-playing selves) were invited to play the instrument of the late Vladimir Horowitz for themselves. As Tom Lee's vice-president Graham Blank put it: "It would be the equivalent of a guitar player coming in, getting to play Jimi Hendrix's Stratocaster." A new handmade Steinway concert grand piano is $130,000. This one, however, is priceless, and one of few pianos whose ivories tickle back.

Steveston has been the site of much mayhem lately. One episode of Once Upon a Time had the town looking like a bomb went off. Meanwhile Norman Bates and his mommy disposed of a body in Steveston Harbour. But earlier this month, a virtual Godzilla made

quite a big splash in Steveston when locals and visitors were treated to a Hollywood behindthe-scenes moment. Using a massive hydraulic lift, a floating stage, a mega-green screen suspended from a crane, water cannons simulating bow-breaking waves, along with a replica

The two shows sometimes filmed within days of each other in Steveston and even share an actor, Keegan Connor Tracy, who plays Blue Fairy in the former and Miss Watson

The Best of Richmond Arts Best shows filmed in town Richmond, and specifically Steveston, have become particularly popular in the last couple of years with Hollywood types. The popularity of the ABC TV fantasy series, Once Upon a Time, has certainly exposed the fishing village to an even larger audience. Who will forget the remarkable transformation of a stretch of Moncton Street into a war zone for the second season premiere of OUAT? Nine months later, the same stretch of roadway was again reshaped into a battlefield, this time for the filming of the $100+ million Hollywood reboot of the Japanese monster franchise Godzilla. With eight days of filming in town, along with elaborate sets including numerous cranes, floating

platforms and hundreds of extras, the economic impact of the filming was monstrous. So what’s the best-ever movie filmed here? Or how about TV show? Die-hard fans of Smallville and Supernatural will remain loyal, but those locally shot shows haven’t had nearly the economic impact of OUAT. And although the viewing audience of OUAT has been massive, there’s something to be said about the staying power of those other two shows which have a combined 18 seasons between them. In fact, Smallville surpassed another locally shot show, Stargate SG-1, as the longest-running North American science fiction series, as well as the longest-running comic

book-based series in TV history. Few will remember the performance of Keanu Reeves on the locally-shot The Day the Earth Stood Still, where he plays an alien. Or how about the movie Charlie St. Cloud, though when teen heartthrob actor Zac Efron appeared in Steveston, he drew hundreds of adoring young fans yet not enough of them bothered for a return for a second look when the show made it to theatres. The theatrical reboot of The A Team, wasn’t bad. But nothing really stands out, head and shoulders above the rest, and maybe Godzilla will live up to his stature by bringing in huge audiences and strong reviews when the movie is scheduled to debut in May of 2014.

Mary Gazetas left an indelible mark on Richmond, a city that mourned her passing last April. Gazetas was a former columnist with The Richmond Review, whose column Folio One offered readers slices of her life experiences. She helped people who needed help, worked to protect green spaces and also recognized the importance of arts and culture to a city. So when the City of Richmond updated its arts strategy last fall, it chose a quote from one of her columns to lead it off: “…it’s important to recognize that 2010 did change forever the face of Richmond in a bold way. The Olympic Legacy isn’t just the Richmond Olympic Oval and the Canada Line. On a grand scale, sculptures appeared on streets and parks...it was like Richmond grew up culturally. Or, that for once art was an integrated element in terms of a city’s transformation.”

Best international star to visit Richmond This week River Rock Casino Resort made a concert announcement 10 months before a singer with huge star power will appear on stage. But unless you’re of a certain older generation—or perhaps of Greek heritage—her name is unlikely to ring a bell. Nana Mouskouri will play the Show Theatre March 28, 2014, when she’ll be the golden age of 79. Her provided bio says she’s sold over 200 million records and is the best selling female recording artist in the world. Ardent researchers contributing to her Wikipedia page, however, say she’s sold more than 350 million records. In other words, a big deal. So whip up a meal of moussaka and moustalevria and go see Mouskouri.

Best office escape Between the foliage and “for lease” signs on Jacombs Road lies an oasis, nay, the coolest courtyard in a commercial complex. Office doors lead to this sunny secluded spot surrounded by wrought iron fence and

brick. Inside is a museum-like sculpture, fountain, flowering shrubs and patio chairs. But alas, stressed out office workers aren’t here to enjoy its tranquility—it has fallen victim to Richmond’s sky-high office vacancy rate. It

was last used by Elections B.C. as an Electoral District Office. But elections are serious stuff, so we doubt staff had the chance to enjoy the fountain while chewing baguettes and sipping red wine on break.

Best vacant building With its artfully landscaped parking lot, bold exterior finishing, rooftop parking deck and convenient City Centre location, 3000 Sexsmith Rd. is a building to behold. Maybe we’re overstating it, but realtors could use our help. Since Rona left five years ago, just one other major retailer attempted to make a go in the space. That was LW, otherwise known to the less-hip as Liquidation World, and it didn’t last long. But the neighbouring Starbucks drive-thru still seems to be doing brisk business. Go figure.

The city’s array of fine dollar stores offer discerning shoppers plenty of choices for gifts. But if your loved ones are tired of unwrapping plastic water toys, so-not-one-of-a-kind ceramics and basic kitchen tools, take a peek inside Super Garage. This Aberdeen Centre retailer has auto accessories you won’t find at your favourite national retailer. The store imports auto-themed decor and furniture so every day you can be reminded of your significant other’s love for all things automotive—in your living room. Imagine a coffee table that somehow incorporates an old engine. Other perhaps more practical gift ideas: exhaust tips, shift knobs, models, stickers, badges and air fresheners.

Best example of extreme parenting Lifelong Richmond car buff Dave Boyce has owned 100 cars over 75 years, but one of his favourites is in the ground. It’s a rare ‘39 Pontiac convertible—a hot rod with a straight-eight engine, one of Boyce’s first cars and one of three his dad crushed and buried in a Richmond bog. His dad owned an excavation company. Boyce would later witness another fit of his dad’s anger after a buddy parked his custom coupe near dad’s shop and left for a month-long job on a boat. In a recent interview with The Richmond Review, Boyce said: “We come home 30 days later off the boats and where was the car? Mom said dad got pissed off at it and hauled it to the dump.” The Greater Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society recently honoured Boyce for his efforts in preserving the history of motorsport in B.C.

Best reason to put a Leaf in your driveway This spring, the city gave the go-ahead to electric vehicle charging stations at five locations across Richmond. Finally, motorists brave enough to drive electric vehicles have convenient places to go for free electricity fill-ups while visiting city sites like city hall, the oval and community centres. A local auto dealership also offers charging stations. We’re not sure all this is going to start an electric vehicle revolution, but Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt owners can at least drive a little more comfortably now around Richmond.

Thank you for voting for us in the category of Best Hotel in this year’s Best of Richmond!

Best archeological work The old Zellers store in Lansdowne Centre is being renovated into a Target, but signs of an old tenant have been reappearing. Eaton’s was the original tenant of the mall’s southeast corner. Along with Woodward’s food floor and department store (both also long gone), it was one of three major tenants in the mall when it first opened in 1977. Once one of Canada’s most successful department stores, Eaton’s went bankrupt in August 1999. As work continues on transforming the space into a Target for next spring, traces of the old Eaton’s outdoor sign were visible as was the sign above the shipping door. When The Richmond Review posted these photos on its Facebook page and Twitter feed, it was flooded by comments from readers who fondly remember the old department store. The most common comment was about the old restaurant on the second floor overlooking the mall.

This nomination is a reflection of the hard FINALIST work and dedication that the staff at Best of the Ramada Airport Hotel has put RICHMOND forth in the past year. We’re very proud 2013 of all their efforts and are grateful to be recognized for this achievement.

Best water view outside of Steveston Restaurants don't exactly abound along the riverfront outside of Steveston. But for those water rippled sunset seekers there is another eatery to explore. Seaview Café is off the beaten track, but is perhaps getting noticed more today given its location near the Richmond Olympic Oval. Located at 7080 River Rd., Seaview is easy to miss. It's upstairs in a plain, boring office building. The restaurant is pretty plain inside too, and the views, well, they're best outside—particularly in winter when the bare trees cooperate.

Best emcee Many know Fred Lee for his “man about town” columns in The Province and on CBC. You may also know him for his work as associate director of alumni relations at UBC. But in Richmond he’ll now be forever remembered as an emcee extraordinaire after his hosting effort at last year’s Business Excellence Awards. The annual Richmond Chamber of Commerce event is a showcase of Richmond’s best in business, but Lee’s campy humour stole the show and people rolling in the aisles with laughter. Let’s hope he gets asked back.

The Best of Richmond people to suggest names for its seven new South African penguins. One local resident shamelessly touted a village full of fish ‘n’ chips and heritage in her lobby for Steveston the Penguin. The clumsy creature can still be seen with his pals at the Stanley Park attraction.

Best cry for help from city hall Matthew Hoekstra photo The boat at Britannia.

Best boat at Britannia Britannia Heritage Shipyards is a great gem in Richmond, but for kids who just want to climb in boats that are off limits, it can be a bit of a bust. Hence our fascination with a simple little rowboat resting in the grass outside. No ropes, no security guards, no rules. The novelty of climbing in a boat with no instruments, paddles or fun stuff wears off after a while, but it nonetheless proves how accessibility spawns creativity. Museums where exploring is encouraged are ones that become attractions.

Best use of a backyard If there was any doubt Hamilton residents have character, take a look at Ron Mercer. The father of three built the ultimate bicycle motocross ramp course on his rented half-acre property. All this BMX blessedness is sandwiched fence-to-fence in the home’s backyard—about the size of a hockey rink. It took three years of long days to build the so-called Woodyard, and it’s still a work-in-progress. Mercer used salvaged wood to construct the masterpiece he described as “Leonardo da Vinci stuff.” It’s a playground like no other, especially since the small dirt bike park at the south end of No. 2 Road is being lost to redevelopment. But the city is moving ahead with a new dirt bike park in Garden City Community Park to give BMX riders another place to practice an activity that’s now part of the Summer Olympics.

Best place to spot Steveston out of Steveston We all know Steveston as a fishing village. But last summer Steveston also became a penguin. A new exhibit at the Vancouver Aquarium welcomed

Last fall, the high powers at Richmond City Hall sought help from some unexpected sources. City officials put out a call for some four-legged friends to help rid local fields of pesky snow geese. Smart, these bureaucrats, for inviting the dog handlers to apply because as good as some Rovers are at holding a writing instrument, penmanship is likely a distant second to barking at field-decimating fowl. Volunteers were told they’d be given the green light at certain times of the day to run their dogs without a leash on the most geese-friendly fields. Meantime, the dogs were instructed to encourage the geese to leave the fields, but avoid physical contact. All this free labour without even complimentary kibble? It’s not easy being man’s best friend.

Best place to dump garbage A farm on Blundell Road near the quiet sanctuary that is the Shell Road Trail became an uncertified dump several weeks ago when multiple loads of trash were deposited here. But not to worry dear readers, the appropriate authorities have been notified and are working behind the scenes to hold the landowner to account. In the meantime, unfortunately, additional loads of trash have made acquaintance with the land. With nary a sign or driveway blockade here, this sight for sore eyes is just inviting more trouble.

Best sight for sore eyes On the popular Richmond roads—you know who you are dear pavement—houses are being demolished at a head-spinning rate. A classic case of out with the old, in with the new, bigger and better. But last year came a rare sight. So rare it attracted a TV film crew. Workers from Nickel Brothers picked up a 41-year-old Seafair rancher, loaded it onto a truck and hauled the 13,000-kilogram monster away. Its destination? Not the dump, but Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island. This old home was given new life instead of being junked.

Elizabeth Specht

Amanda Oye was born and raised in Richmond. She is working as a freelance journalist and attending school at Simon Fraser University.

Elizabeth Specht is executive director of Volunteer Richmond.

What do you like best about Richmond? “I love its beauty. The scenery over by the water in Steveston is gorgeous and the view of the mountains is breathtaking on a clear day. Also, the city does an incredible job planting and maintaining flower beds and hanging baskets in the spring and festively decorating the city in the winter. What’s the best place to take out-oftowners? “Spending the day wandering around Steveston Village and eating Sarah’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream is always a big hit with out-of-towners.” Best lunch? “Cimona Cafe. They have the best club sandwiches and the service is always great

What do you miss most about old Richmond? “I love Canada Day in Steveston- everything from the parade in the morning to the Salmon Festival during the day. That being said, the thing that I miss most is the fireworks display that used to happen every July 1st down at Garry Point when I was a kid.” Best thing you’d like to see in Richmond? “I’d love to see the Farmers and Artisans Market continue to grow. It’s a great way to show off a lot of amazing locally made products and locally grown produce and a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.”

What do you like best about Richmond? “The sense of community pride, and how strong our community engagement is. I love the dyke trails and that I can run or cycle and not encounter any hills! The produce farms are a showcase.” What's the best place to take out-of-towners? “A drive along South Dyke road and Finn Slough, Garry Point for sure, and Steveston Village. And of course, a visit to one of the many delicious dim sum restaurants we are so fortunate to have!” Best lunch? That’s a tough one as we have so many fabulous choices in our City, depending on what your desire is for the day. Best business lunch? American Grille or Chop. For more leisure and a fabulous menu – Blue Canoe.” What do you miss most about old Richmond? “Less traffic, more farms, more open vistas.” Best thing you’d like to see in Richmond? “More independent farms – bravo to Urban Edibles! Free parking, and more arts and entertainment, cultural events and a House of Blues!”

A new playground is taking shape in Terra Nova Rural Park. Expected to be completed this year, this $1-million play environment will be anything but traditional. A sloughcrossing raft, a meadow maze, sand factory and a fishing net “gymcrazium” are promised. Natural elements will become play elements. Just be wary of the park’s nemesis: the lesser snow goose. These fowl are known for fouling fields as they stop here to feed. We’re hoping children’s screams and squeals will be enough to dissuade the birds from pooping on playground picnics.

Best event to appeal to the masses

The worldwide nature of soccer appeals to Richmond’s everexpanding multicultural makeup. And on a bright, sunny summer day there’s likely not a better spot to catch the action than on the hillside overlooking the west pitch at Hugh Boyd Park. But a memo to organizers: please, please, please bring back the myriad of ethnic dishes that most only get the chance to sample at an event such as this.

The younger crowd in Richmond might be inclined to list the Dolphin Park Classic as their favourite sports event of the year. And the annual summer basketball ritual is indeed a must-see. But on a larger scale is the Nations Cup soccer tournament, also held each July.

Best shot under pressure During his playing days, former Richmond Colt Gil Cheung was a pretty fair long-range shooter. In 1996 he earned Basketball BC’s junior boys’ three-point championship. But his most recent display of that shooting prowess earned him a feature on CNN, the Cable News Network.

A former All-Canadian who captained the Brandon University Bobcats, Cheung is now the team’s head coach. His halftime shot from centre court during a school contest in February won tuition for student Mason Kaluzniak, who picked Cheung (his former instructor) to take the shot for him.

Best preview of potential The Grade 9 girls’ basketball team at R.A. McMath Secondary seems poised for big success in the future. While still eligible to play at the juvenile level this past season, the Wildcats opted instead to play in the Richmond Grade 10 league and promptly won it with an 8-0 record. They were then one of four teams from their zone to qualify for the provincial championships and upset seventh-ranked Mount Baker of Cranbrook in their opening game. Certainly not the tallest team (not a single player is over six feet) their skill and determination is undeniable.

The Best of Richmond Sports Best scoring instincts

freshman in the men’s saber event at the National Collegiate Athletic Association Fencing Championships in San Antonio in March. He went on to earn All-American status by winning 16 of his 23 bouts during the round-robin portion of the competition. A member of Richmond’s Dynamo Fencing Club, he was inspired to take up the sport after watching the fictional character Zorro.

Headed for Louisiana State University on a full four-year soccer scholarship in September, Summer Clarke has a knack for scoring goals. The latest in an athletic family to suit up for Canada (her older brother Caleb, a top prospect of Major League Soccer’s Vancouver Whitecaps, was the leading scorer for Canada’s men’s team at the under-20 CONCACAF tournament in Mexico in February), Clarke paced Canada’s under-17 women’s team at last year’s CONCACAF championship in Guatemala. Her club-record seven goals helped to earn Canada a berth in last summer’s World Cup in Azerbaijan.

Best name change When Steve Valenzuela became president of the Richmond Senior Soccer League a few seasons back, one of his goals was to help the local men’s league expand its footprint. At a special meeting earlier this year, Valenzuela successfully put forth a motion to change the league’s name to better reflect the players it serves. Beginning next season, the league will be known as the

Best recordsetting performances Noemie Thomas’ athletic talent is matched only by her determination. It’s a combination that has the 16-year-old swimmer rapidly climbing the international swimming ladder. Along the way, Thomas is also setting records, like the ones last December when she bettered her own national record in the women’s 50-metre butterfly final with a swim of 25.60 seconds—a mere 0.05 seconds outside the medals. She followed that up with a new Canadian standard of 56.64 seconds in the 100-metre butterfly. We’re confident Thomas will soon have an impressive collection of international medals, and quite possibly some Olympic memories to go with them.

ally a prelude of what’s to come in B.C. Baseball, as the provincial body has decided to make the use of wood bats— replacing aluminum bats—mandatory beginning next season. Longtime Chuckers’ manager Alex Klenman is a strong supporter of traditional baseball and welcomes the return to wood bats. The balls don’t travel as far off the bat and the exit speed off the bat is substantially less but it’s a truer form of the game, he maintains.

Logan Newman and his Richmond Chuckers teammates recently hosted a wood-bat baseball classic.

Seafood season at Tapenade Bistro

Pier 73 takes taste to a whole new level

The recent warm spring weather has been a great prelude to summer, and Tapenade Bistro owner Vince Morlet couldn't be happier. As the temperature heats up, so does interest in patio and waterfront dining, and Morlet's Bayview Street restaurant has both in spades. And what better way to dine in the fishing village of Steveston than to take in the fresh seafood offerings, everything from spot prawns—one of B.C.'s major gems—to fresh West Coast halibut, dungeness crab, octopus, sable fish and sardines. The change in weather and season also means an alteration to Tapenade's menu, which is now about 75% seafood, the way it will remain until September. Tapenada Bistro is located at 3711 Bayview St. To book your table, call 604-275-5188.

“Food is meant to be social and meant to be shared,” said James Addington, manager of Pier 73 restaurant, next to the Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel on Sea Island. Formerly the Elephant and Castle, the eatery suspended by stilts above the Fraser River offers amazing views thanks to tall, wrap-around windows. The trend at eateries is for people to share a handful of dishes rather than order individually, which encourages interaction and stimulates conversation, he said. With an updated menu that picks up on this trend and sources ingredients from local providers who use sustainable practices—Gelderman pork, Rainier grass-fed beef and salmon caught by local fisherman Rick Burns—customers are sure to enjoy the great food and family-friendly atmosphere. And with summer just three weeks away, there’s 120 patio seats on the restaurant side, and another 60 on the lounge side, for eating outdoors. Pier 73, at 3500 Cessna Dr., has daily and weekly specials, which are available at pier73.com. Follow them on Twitter (@Pier_73) or friend them in Facebook, for updates on food specials. Parking is free; just register your licence plate.

Kwantlen St.

Since holding their first neighborhood clean-up in 2011, Seafair minor hockey players and their families have made it an annual habit to improve their environmental footprint. The idea originated with visionary board member Cody Kusch, who suggested cleaning up Garry Point Park and the surrounding area would be a good way to show the players the importance of giving back. Last Thanksgiving, more than 300 individuals participated in the community clean-up, where more than 5,000 items of garbage were collected before counting ceased. That was enough to fill a dozen over-sized garbage bags.

for you and don’t underestimate it. Sometimes we look for results to validate, but if you have a passion that’s what it’s about for me.” Those words of advice were shared by former Canadian Olympic figure skaterTracy Wilson as a guest instructor at the Connaught Skating Club’s recent annual spring seminar. Wilson’s words ring true not only in figure skating, but all sport. Too often we focus on wins and losses, and not what’s most important—the pure enjoyment of athletics.

RichCity Idol just celebrated their 10th Anniversary On May 9th, one student representative from each Richmond high school showed off their vocal talents in front of a panel of judges in hopes of winning the competition and having their dreams come true — just like every year for the past ten years. In 2013, however, RichCity Idol is celebrating something very special. An endowment fund is being set up through the Richmond Community Foundation to fund scholarships for Richmond students who have been involved with RichCity Idol or who plan to pursue their education in performing arts. RichCity Idol has been helping youth in our community express themselves through performing arts and discover their leadership skills for ten years. Now the community can assist with this fund to support future performers and leaders. You can donate to the endowment fund by going to www.richmondfoundation.org, and selecting RichCity Idol Endowment Fund. Congratulations RichCity Idol on 10 years of golden moments!

by holding an annual game to raise funds in her memory for the B.C. Lupus Society. This year’s game, played in April against the Richmond Ravens’ Midget A1 team, generated a donation of more than $9,000 bringing the three-year total to more than $13,000. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation in one or more parts of the body. A complex disease, it can target any tissue or organ of the body including skin, muscles, joints, blood, lungs, heart, kindness and the brain.

Best donation A $10,000 donation to KidSport Richmond by Coast Capital Savings last month will help to ensure nearly 300 local kids are able to get in the game. In 2012, KidSport Richmond provided grants totalling over $51,000 for 242 children to register in a community sport. This year the goal is to assist over 275 kids and to distribute over $60,000 in grants.

Best sports camps On sheer volume and variety alone, the Richmond Olympic Oval’s sports camps are hard to top. One of the oval’s goals is to create lifelong participation and physical activity and the camps do a lot to meet this objective.

Late bloomers take note. It’s never too late to start something new.

The thirdyear kinesiology student is also the starting goalkeeper for the University of B.C.

For five seasons between 2007 and 2012, Judd Lambert guided the Richmond Sockeyes to a franchise-best winning percentage of over .800, a Keystone Cup Western Canadian championship and numerous provincial and league honours. But Lambert, understandably and deservedly so, needed a rest and stepped down as the head of the Pacific Junior Hockey League team at the conclusion of the 2011-12 season. After a year away, however, Lambert realized how much he missed being back of the bench and with the blessing of his young family put his name forward when the head coaching position again became vacant this spring with the resignation of his replacement—Aaron Wilbur. And now that John Tortorella has been relieved of his coaching duties by the New York Rangers, perhaps the Sockeyes should consider him to assist Lambert? It would certainly keep things interesting on those long, midseason winter evenings.

After starting the game with his former junior team, the Richmond Sockeyes, Jordan Oye was traded to the Vancouver Canucks for the third period of an alumni game played in February at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Part of Richmond Celebrates Hockey Day that also included a celebrity ball hockey game featuring hall of famer Guy Lafleur, Oye was swapped for Orland Kurtenbach who coached the Sockeyes to the Canadian Junior A championship in 1987. Oye said he’d heard Kurt wanted to play with the Sockeyes but didn’t know the Sockeyes would be sending someone to the Canucks to replace him—least of all himself. Sockeyes’ captain Dougie Paterson explained that the trade was made because they wanted someone who could skate and dangle with the puck.

The Best of Richmond Sports Best place to watch sports (indoors) The Richmond Olympic Oval has plenty of appeal. And the Richmond Ice Centre, to the envy of many a community, boasts six rinks. But there’s nothing quite like watching the action inside the venerable Minoru Arenas. Though built way back in 1965, the facility is aging nicely—

which is another way of saying the city has done a commendable job of keeping it structurally sound and looking sharp. Home to the Richmond Sockeyes of the Pacific Junior Hockey League, the main stadium rink offers spectacular sight lines that not even the numerous old-style archways around the rink can diminish. Its sound system leaves something to be desired, but that too is outweighed by its obvious character and charm.

Best place to watch sports (outdoors) At the heart of Richmond’s city centre, the park—named after a race horse owned by King Edward VII and originally home to a horse racing track and an airfield—is always a cornucopia of activity and not just in the sporting realm. That said, it’s home to a pair of artificial true fields which get plenty of use by community sports teams. There’s also

And when the weather is inclement—which of course it frequently is on the Wet Coast—fans can watch the action in relative comfort from the extensive bleachers under the cover of the grandstand which seats well in excess of 1,000 people.

Best NBA reunion The old practice floor for the Vancouver Grizzlies remains up for grabs, and you don’t even have to bid on it. That’s because the current owner is willing to give it away free, provided someone is ready to remove it from the former NBA basketball team’s old home on Triangle Road, currently where Extreme Air Park is doing business. And The Richmond Review would be willing to chip in some more Grizzlies memorabilia to the person who takes the floor. We’ve got a pair of size 15 game-worn Nike Air basketball shoes belonging to former Grizzlies player George Lynch we’d be willing to package with it. It’s been a long time since Lynch set foot on this court, but those were good times, despite the constant losing. We got to see the likes of Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley during their prime. It wasn’t the people of Metro Vancouver who gave up on the Grizzlies. It was the new owner who hoodwinked the city, claiming to be committed to keeping the money-losing franchise in Vancouver, and then failing to staff his sales department before the axe eventually fell. Commissioner David Stern was also complicit. Should the NBA one day return to Vancouver, the practice floor and Lynch’s shoes could become part of a cool little museum.

The Best of Richmond Sports Best compared to a giant marshmallow Outside of the few dry days we’re blessed with, much of the action at the Richmond Tennis Club is played under a giant bubble. The white canvas looks a lot like the old fluffy bed sheet that covered B.C. Place Stadium before it was converted to an open-air facility featuring a cable-supported retractable roof.

Best show of community spirit Participants in a charity hockey game played earlier this month at the Richmond

Ice Centre are showing they’ve got big hearts. A team representing the Richmond firefighters—buoyed by Western Hockey Leaguers Brayden Low and Carter Popoff and B.C. Hockey League player Turner Popoff—will be donating half of the $4,500 raised during the Fire on Ice game to Project Emily. Ashton Service group owner Brian Williams is behind Project Emily, which appealing for community support to build a new accessible home in Richmond for the de Boer family. On Feb. 14, 2011 a surgical attempt to correct spine curvature left Emily de Boer, an active and athletic Lord Byng elementary student, a paraplegic. The generous gesture is an example of exactly what event organizer Erick Cronier hoped for when he helped to create For Others, which organized Fire and Ice, last year.

GVHBA invites public to Parade of Renovated Homes

Imagining the renovation possiblities The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association invites you to tour 11 professionally renovated homes in the Lower Mainland on June 9 on their annual Parade of Renovated Homes. Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., visitors will be able to look around the homes and talk with the renovators. “Professional RenoMark renovators, ... will be on-site to offer expert advice and discuss their craftsmanship,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Project values range widely, offering homeowners an abundance of ideas they can incorporate into their own renovations.” Admission is by passport and will

cost $10 per person. Children 17 and under are free. You can purchase your passport at any home on the tour. Visit www.gvhba.org for a full list of participating homes. Because the homes are private residences, the tour is only open during the event date and times. “FortisBC is extremely excited to again be the presenting sponsor of this popular consumer event,” says FortisBC regional energy solutions manager Dan Noel. “We look forward to combining the strengths of GVHBA and FortisBC to help the renovation industry in Metro Vancouver achieve innovative and successful results when it comes to their projects and energy requirements.”

Appia to release second phase soon

SOLO District rising above the rest with Altus By Kerry Vital

Exciting things are happening at Appia Developments’ SOLO District with their upcoming release of the second residential phase and ongoing construction of the first phase. Stratus, the first tower, will rise 45 storeys and will be available for buyers to move into in 2015. Meanwhile, Altus will begin sales in the near future. “Altus will be the tallest building in Burnaby,” says Lisa Murrell, sales and marketing manager for Appia. “The views are amazing.” Altus will be the equivalent of 55 storeys tall, with office space on the first 14 floors. Thus, the first residential floor will be 200 feet up, offering stunning views from every condominium home.

There’s everything you could possibly need here,” says Lisa Murrell, sales and marketing manager for Appia Developments. “The views start from the bottom (residential) floor,” Murrell says. “There will also be a quiet barbecue area and rooftop garden on that floor.” At the very top of the building, you’ll find a huge amenity space that Appia is calling Club 55 with a barbecue area, full kitchen, media area and pool and ping-pong tables and generous outdoor deck space all for residents of Altus. The office tower will include a gym that residents have access to as well, and a multi-sport court on the third floor. SOLO District, which stands for South of Lougheed, will eventually be comprised of four stunning residential towers (Cirrus and Aerius are the two others and will be released at a future date) and when complete, will house over 1,400 homes. It will also hold office space, commercial opportunities and plenty of green space. Among the tenants will be Burnaby’s first Whole Foods, right next door to Stratus. “There are several other exciting anchor tenants to be announced,” says Murrell. “This is a very, very cool community.” That’s no exaggeration. SOLO is steps away from Brentwood Town Centre, the Brentwood SkyTrain

station, restaurants, schools and leisure activities, so it’s perfectly situated. “There’s everything you could possibly need here,” Murrell says. “Walkability was key.” Stratus began sales last year, and Appia has since consulted with buyers and locals to find out what drew them to the master-planned community. “It’s been really well-received by the community,” Murrell says. “We’re learning what people want.” The homes themselves are spacious and open, ranging from approximately 539 up to about 1,700 square feet. Something that sets Altus apart are the choices it offers for three-bedroom units, which is something buyers have been asking for and Appia is happy to be able to provide in this new phase of SOLO District. Among the features you’ll find in your new home are imported Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms, engineered wood flooring in the living areas and polished quartz countertops. All of the homes at SOLO will be heated and cooled via geothermal heat exchange, which uses stored energy from the earth and is incredibly efficient. FortisBC notes that buyers will see great cost savings compared to conventional buildings, and less maintenance will be required. For more information, visit www. solodistrict.com or call 604-298-8800.

Submitted photos

Appia Developments will soon release its second phase of homes at SOLO, called Altus. It will be the tallest building in Burnaby, top, and will offer amazing views over the Lower Mainland, a fantastic location and a huge amenities space called Club 55, above, with a barbecue area, full kitchen and generous outdoor deck space.

McLUSKIE, Gordon Allan It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Gordon Allan McLuskie. Gord was born on December 22, 1957 in Vancouver and passed away in Richmond Hospital on May 25, 2013 at the age of 55 with his family at his side. Predeceased by his dad Reg on May 1, 2008. Gord will be deeply missed by his mother Kathy, his daughter Serena and her mother Cathy. Brothers Mike (Tess), Ross (Cathee), Dave (Carol) and sister Liz (Mic), as well his nieces, nephews and cousins. Gord never gave up in life as he defeated leukemia and ultimately lost his fight due to complications from a stroke he suffered in December. We will all miss Gord’s sense of humour and his love of life. Many thanks to the medical staff at VGH and Richmond Hospital. Gord’s family would like to invite family and friends to remember Gord June 9/13 at Sheraton Vancouver Airport (Richmond Inn) Elmbridge room 7551 Westminster Hwy. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada BC/Yukon Region or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC.

GILCHRIST, Alberta Joan (Richardson)

Joan, beloved wife of Garth Gilchrist of Richmond BC, passed away suddenly on May 24th 2013 after a brief struggle with cancer. Joan was predeceased by her parents Elva Jane and Ab Richardson of Brandon and her son Kevin of Grande Prairie. She is survived by her loving children Wendy (Ray) Letasy, Karen (David) Thomas, Heather (Berry) Muis, Grady Gilchrist and Garett Gilchrist. Grandchildren, Abby Rae Letasy Clark, Kayla Letasy Somerville, Keltey Thomas, Keegan Thomas, Caitlin Thomas, Tyler and Teagan Muis, and Cate and Ella Gilchrist. Great grandsons, Ryder Brownlee, Tanner Thomas and Robbie Somerville. Joan loved her children more than life itself. She had a great thirst for books and knowledge. Sports were always a big part of her life. She had a great sense of humor. She loved her friends, she loved to travel and she had a passion for music and art. As a family we would like to extend a special thank-you to Dr. Faulkner and Dr. Alexiadis and the wonderful caring staff of the palliative care unit at Richmond General Hospital. In lieu of flowers a donation could be made to the ALS Society. Joan was a huge supporter of the cure for ALS. We will love her forever and miss her always. A private family memorial will be held.

The Best of Richmond Sports Best way to celebrate a 40th anniversary Richmond Sockeyes put the finishing touches on a remarkably successful 40th anniversary season in April by defeating the Saskatoon Royals 5-2 to win the Keystone Cup Western Canadian Junior B hockey championship in St. Malo, Man. The Sockeyes' 2012-13 season also included a Tom Shaw Conference and Pacific Junior Hockey Leaguebest 68 points based on a 32-8-0-4 record. The Sockeyes then built upon their .773 regular-season winning

percentage by adding the playoff championship, boasting an .800 winning percentage by going 12-3. After losing Game 6 of their bestof-seven conference final 4-2 to the Delta Ice Hawks, the Sockeyes didn't lose another game en route to winning the Keystone Cup. Following a Game 7 victory over Delta, the Sockeyes swept the Aldergrove Kodiaks four straight in the league final and then proceeded to win the Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial title and then the Keystone Cup in 10 games.

Richmond Sockeyes celebrated their 40th season with a Western Canadian hockey championship.

Darcy Marquardt insists she’s retired from rowing—for good. And what a ride it was. Marquardt capped an illustrious international rowing career at last summer’s London Olympic Games by earning a silver medal, one of the eight members of Canada’s second-place team in the women’s eight rowing final. For the 34-year-old Marquardt, who is engaged to marry this summer Canadian Olympic swimmer Richard Hortness, the medal is a physical representation of all the long hours of hard work over the past 10 years.

The Summer Games were the third for Marquardt, who first competed at the Athens Games in 2004 in pairs rowing. She took up a seat in the women’s eight boat at the 2008 Games in Beijing, which is also where she met Hortness. Now that both Marquardt and Hortness are retired from competitive sport, perhaps they can share some of the many things Marquardt enjoys most about Richmond—like visiting the quaint Steveston shops, enjoying a burger at the Flying Beaver, or simply taking in the fresh sea air while walking the trails along the Fraser River.

Hockey Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur (centre) enjoys playing in a celebrity ball hockey game at the Richmond Olympic Oval in February, part of Richmond Celebrates Hockey Day presented by the City of Richmond.

Best NHL player to play in Richmond When it comes to NHL stars, past and present, few have had more star appeal than former Montreal Canadiens’ right winger Guy Lafleur. The Flower may also be the biggest name in

pro hockey to ever play a game in Richmond, taking part in a celebrity ball hockey during Richmond Celebrates Hockey Day, presented by the City of Richmond, last February at the Rich-

mond Olympic Oval. A member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, Lafleur remains the Habs’ all-time leading scorer with 1,246 points amassed over 14 seasons.
