by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A mall cop turned mall doc at Aberdeen Centre last Saturday afternoon. And although he isn’t a father yet, security supervisor Jason Meszaros probably felt a similar type of joy when he came to the rescue of a woman who suddenly went into labour next to a second-floor escalator, making for a simply unforgettable story. Aberdeen Centre’s Joey Kwan said the incident began to unfold between 3 and 4 p.m. on June 8, when a pregnant woman’s water suddenly broke. Mall security immediately rushed to the scene, and Meszaros jumped in to assist, putting on gloves to prepare for the miracle of child birth. As they awaited the arrival of emergency crews, a 911 operator walked Meszaros through the process, and on cue, he reminded the woman to breathe and push at the right moments. Through it all, Meszaros, a supervisor for the past five years, and a security guard for 13 years, managed to remain calm, cool and collected. Born before the arrival of firefighters and paramedics was a healthy bouncing baby boy. His mother was fine too. They were taken to hospital on Saturday, and have since been discharged. The chaos of diverting the customers away from the scene, and the drama of the childbirth, meant there was no time to even take down names, Kwan said. So as of Thursday afternoon, they have no idea who the woman is. “It was an amazing and phenomenal situation for us,” Kwan said. “This is not happening every day.”

Martin van den Hemel photo It was a happy birthday for a newborn and his mother at Aberdeen Centre on Saturday afternoon, where the miracle of child birth still has the mall buzzing. The auspicious event has left mall retailers in a giving mood, including Saint Germain Bakery, which will give the boy a free birthday cake every year until he’s 18, says Joey Kwan. Security supervisor Jason Meszaros, at rear, was glad he could help.

Kwan said she’d like to reach out to the new mother, in hopes of making another delivery, this time in the form of an abundance of presents from the merchants at Aberdeen. But out of respect for the woman, who might still feel overwhelmed, Kwan said she’ll completely respect her privacy if she chooses not to speak to the media, and will keep her name confidential too. Kwan said

she’s even willing to deliver the goods to the family’s home personally. The Richmond Review has learned that the woman and her family, of Vietnamese origin, wish to remain anonymous. Having a baby boy delivered in a mall is considered an auspicious event, Kwan said. The fact it was the eighth day of the month probably didn’t escape notice. The mall’s bakery, Saint Germain Bakery,

has pledged to provide a birthday cake for every birthday the boy celebrates until he’s 18. And a new restaurant tenant in the mall, Gangnam Northern Chinese Cuisine, is donating a table to celebrate the child’s 100th day birthday, considered among those of Chinese ancestry as an important event. Daiso will also be presenting the newborn a 100-item gift, Kwan said.

Could coastal island become rabbit refuge Local businessman offers Shearwater Island as a sanctuary for the locally abandoned rabbit population by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A seven-acre island has been offered up by its owner to become the home for a significant chunk of Richmond’s abandoned rabbit population that now call the Richmond Auto Mall home. Craig Widsten, owner of Shearwater Resort and Marina on the central coast of B.C., also owns Shearwater Island, which sits far enough offshore to contain the rabbits, but is close enough to make human access relatively easy. Sorelle Saidman, founder of rabbit-rescue non-profit group Rabbitats, said Widsten first approached her organization with the offer a couple of months ago. She will be meeting with government officials this week and next to discuss regulatory hurdles that might complicate a rabbit relocation. Saidman said even if the appropriate bodies approve, there are still many details that would need to be investigated and problems addressed, before potentially moving the rabbits to the island.

“He can easily fit 100 to 200 rabbits on their own,” Saidman said. The heavily-wooded island must be suitable for sustaining the rabbit population. Saidman said she wouldn’t want the rabbits to simply become food for the eagle population, and noted that there’s no natural source of water on the island. She’s also concerned about whether there’s a sufficient food source for the rabbits. Reached Thursday afternoon, Widsten emphasized that his offer is really at just the discussion level. “I read the article a few months ago about the...rabbit problem at the auto mall. I’ve owned the island for I guess 20 years and it’s a treed island. I’m doing nothing with it at the moment,” he said. Covered with old-growth timber that could provide significant shelter for the rabbits, and few predators, Widsten said he“thought it might be an option.” He even sees the potential of the island becoming a tourist draw—like Okunoshima, Japan which has been dubbed Rabbit Island and is a major tourist attraction—though that wasn’t what prompted him to step forward. Saidman said if Shearwater Island were to become a rabbit refuge, it would need to be upgraded to include interactive spaces where tourists and the rabbits could socialize. She even sees the potential of moving Rabbitville, the current home for many rabbits collected at the auto mall, in its entirety to Shearwater Island.

Hugh McRoberts student wins Canadian history contest Margaret Lin won the contest in French by Don Fennell Staff Reporter Any day she can make her social studies teacher proud, says Margaret Lin, is a good day. So when the Grade 11 Hugh McRoberts Secondary student entered and won the recent Begbie Canadian History Contest it was particularly satisfying—for both Lin and her teacher Petra Mach. “I entered the contest to see how competent I was at social studies and analysis of texts,” says Lin, who was surprised to learn from a reporter that her mark was 91 per cent. The contest was started by a group of active and retired B.C. social studies teachers in 1993 to raise the profile of social studies and Canadian history in secondary schools, and offered in both English and French to encourage Francophone and French Immersion students to participate. The questions are based on major events in Canadian history from 1850 to the present, using primary sources such as political cartoons, paintings, posters, graphs, maps, statistics, songs, speeches, news-

paper articles and memoirs. Two hours in length, the contest is normally written in the candidate’s school under the supervision of a classroom teacher. “I did a lot of practice tests, and I did tandem study for my sciences humans provincial exam and the Begbie contest,” says Lin. “But the study strategy that helped me the most is what I call the ‘Tree of Thought.’ I have a basic concept, like manifest destiny, that acts as the trunk. Then I visualize concepts that go with it that act as branches (such as bison, assimilation and territory loss) and link it to what I know: for example, bison almost went extinct but there are now breeding programs in place to protect them. From there, I go onto leaves, which are details that I need to know. Flowers are trivia that are nice to know, but not essential. Since I did fairly well in the Begbie contest, I’d say it works for me at least.” One of 1,300 Grade 10 to 12 students from coast to coast to participate in the contest, Lin, who won a $1,000 prize, was the lone winner who completed the contest in French. As the top entry from her school she also received a Begbie Contest medallion. “It was easier than I expected,” she says. “I think it was most likely

easier because I thought in French instead of English. Although the two languages are very similar, thinking in English when writing French creates a sort of barrier. Once you start thinking in French, writing in French feels natural.

There’s no stumbling for translation, no scramble to remember verb conjugations. It was like my pen was flying across the paper.” Her teacher, Petra Mach, was not all surprised her young protege did so well in the contest.

“She’s a very hard-working student, a very bright and wellrounded individual as far as the arts, literature and sciences are concerned, and definitely very creative,” Mach says of Lin. “She does well in the classroom and prepared well for this exam. It didn’t surprise me she won this because she’s a very conscientious student and a natural to have very good achievements in lots of areas of her life.” Lin enjoys dabbling in creative writing on her own, and displays an insatiable appetite and determination to learn that often goes well above and beyond the norm, said Mach.

Jail terms stacking up for Stanley Cup rioters two years later More than 100 sentenced, 325 more could still be charged by Jeff Nagel Black Press

GO GREEN WITH YOUR YARD AND GARDEN – MAKE NATURAL CHOICES Many pesticides are toxic and cannot be used in Richmond. Learn how to make natural choices... • Take our free workshops • Talk with retailers about natural options • Find tips at richmond.ca/pesticides

Sixteen more accused rioters are now charged nearly two years after the night of downtown mayhem that followed the Vancouver Canucks’ 2011 Stanley Cup final loss. A total of 229 people have now been charged with crimes including participating in a riot and 149 of them have pleaded guilty. So far 104 have been sentenced and 32 got jail sentences ranging from 30 days to 20 months, while others have conditional sentences including house arrest. The Crown appealed two sentences seeking stiffer prison terms. Prosecutors wanted the 90-day jail term to be served on weekends increased to six months for Delta rioter Lincoln Kennedy Williams. The B.C. Court of Appeal upheld the original sentence but confirmed imprisonment is appropriate for convicted rioters. “He was one of the ringleaders in vandalizing, overturning, and burning the GMC truck at the ‘live site’ on Georgia Street,” according to the appeal court. While his participation in a “frightening,

violent spectacle of wanton destruction” was “shockingly anti-social” behaviour was “shockingly anti-social”, the top court also noted it was out of character and the high school grad confessed to police the next day. A 60-day intermittent jail term was also upheld for Vancouver resident Alexander Keelty Peepre, who cooperated with police after an anonymous tipster fingered him as one of the rioters. Although critics predicted the push for justice against rioters would clog the court system, Crown counsel spokesman Neil MacKenzie said he’s not aware of any case-flow problems. “There have been a significant number of guilty pleas so there’s been significantly less court time required than if the matters had been set for trial,” he said. Just one case has so far gone to trial, and it lead to a conviction. Nine other trials involving 15 accused are pending. While prosecutors have rejected police-requested charges against 40 accused, they are still considering charge requests against another 325 suspects. Convicted rioter Camille Cacnio was in court earlier this week after being charged with breaching the terms of her probation order. The Richmond resident received a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to taking a pair of pants from a store on the night of the riot. She told the court she broke her curfew in order to pick up some medicine. A judge will make a ruling on the case in the coming weeks.

Sobeys to buy up Canada Safeway grocery stores Owner of IGA, Thrifty Foods adds 75 outlets in B.C.

YVR to announce new airport boss The Vancouver Airport Authority will reveal its new president and chief executive officer on Tuesday. Board chair Mary Jordan is set to announce who the successor will be to the retiring Larry Berg at a news conference on Tuesday, June 18. Following an extensive global search,

the chosen candidate will soon assume leadership of Vancouver International Airport, Canada’s second-busiest airport. YVR connects more than 17 million annual passengers to 120-plus international destinations, employs some 23,000 people and contributes $1.9 billion in national GDP.

by Jeff Nagel Black Press Canada Safeway stores in B.C. have a new owner. Nova Scotia-based supermarket firm Sobeys, itself owned by Empire Company, is buying the Safeway chain’s 213 Canadian stores for $5.8 billion. The deal with Safeway Inc. also includes numerous in-store pharmacies, gas stations, liquor stores and other distribution or manufacturing facilities across western Canada. Sobeys hasn’t yet decided if it will keep the Safeway name or reflag the stores under one of its brands. Richmond has three Safeway stores. Sobeys already has a presence in B.C. through its IGA and Thrifty Foods brands. Adding Safeway’s 75 B.C. stores will give Sobeys 107 outlets in this province. That compares to 101 for Overwaitea Food Group, 84 for Loblaws, 25 Walmarts and

Both Sobeys and Safeway offer Air Miles reward points but the new operators indicated they will move to eliminate separate loyalty programs. Big supermarket chains face growing competition as other retailers add groceries to their shelves.

“This is a significant and historic event for Sobeys, which has been proudly serving Canadian food shoppers for 106 years,” Empire president Paul Sobey said. He called the acquisition an “excellent strategic fit” that strengthens the chain presence in Western Canada, and leverages its existing assets to better compete. Empire officials intend to sell off Safeway stores’ real estate holdings and lease the properties back. The planned purchase is subject to Competition Bureau approval.

Syphilis rates on the rise Syphilis rates in the Lower Mainland have spiked in the past year to the highest levels seen in decades. The highly contagious sexually transmitted disease, once thought nearly wiped out in B.C., is mainly being seen in men who have sexual contact with other men. Both the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health regions report their syphilis case numbers more than doubled from 2011 to 2012. Vancouver Coastal saw nearly 300 cases last year or 80 per cent of the B.C. total. Fraser reported 67 in 2012, up from 27 in both 2010 and 2011. “We’re concerned about the increasing numbers in Fraser even though it’s not as bad as in Vancouver Coastal,” said Dr. Paul Van Buynder, chief medical health officer for the Fraser Health Authority. Some researchers have pointed to the advent of mobile phone apps for easily organizing anonymous gay sex hookups. He said the disease is one of the “great mimickers” because its symptoms can often be mistaken for bug bites or rashes, leading those infected to ignore it and spread the bacteria to others. —by Jeff Nagel

A review by TransLink has flagged underperforming bus routes that may be targeted for “service optimization” to wring more efficiency from the transit system. For a couple of years now, transit planners have strategically trimmed hours from some routes at times when buses roll by mostly empty and added more service to routes they think could carry more riders. Beneficiaries have included the 99 B-Line in Vancouver, where a 10 per cent increase in service has been added to reduce overcrowding. And an all-new White Rock-Langley route was also created to meet demand from passengers who couldn’t reasonably get between the two cities on transit. Overall, TransLink says the strategy has helped it increase the number of of transit trips taken by 3.4 per cent while the average cost per trip dropped. But while the system has gained, there have been winners and losers. Richmond lost 5.5 per cent of its service hours – a change planners say is due to ongoing right-sizing to reflect the 2010 introduction of the Canada Line. And the northeast sector lost 2.3 per cent of its bus hours. The biggest gains were South of the Fraser (excluding south Delta) where 3.5 per cent more hours were added, the North Shore (up 3.4 per cent) and Vancouver (up 1.9 per cent). According to the review, some of the lowest performing individual bus routes are in south Delta, where the average cost to carry a passenger is $2.67, the highest in the region and nearly double the Metro average of $1.34. The per passenger cost was $2.13 in Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows, $1.92 in the Tri-Cities and

They didn’t use it, so they’ll lose it. In September, TransLink will discontinue its little-used C99 community bus route through Queensborough. The bus, which runs hourly during midday, runs from Port Royal to the East Richmond community of Hamilton via Queensborough Landing. The route was the lowest performing route in the network, said TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel. According to a TransLink report, the route cost the transportation authority more than $10 a customer in 2012, which was actually an improvement from $15 in 2010. An average of 30 passengers boarded the bus daily, about six an hour with a peak passenger load of two riders. To compensate for the loss, TransLink will tweak the C98 service which connects Queensborough and East Richmond to the 22nd Street SkyTrain station to include Queensborough Landing, said Zabel. While the C98 route is a low-performing route it carries five times the passengers daily at a cost of $3.84 per person.

$1.84 South of Fraser (North Delta-SurreyLangley-White Rock.) Vancouver had the lowest costs of $1.08 to carry the average passenger. Most of the 25 poorest performing suburban bus routes are served with community shuttles, and include two in Ladner, two in Tsawwassen, two in Richmond/ Queensborough and one each in Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows and Lions Bay. The top performing routes are mainly in Vancouver and Burnaby. According to TransLink planner Peter Klitz, poorly performing routes typically are in lower density areas where residents are more car-dependent and sometimes suffer from circuitous routes or the lack of a strong anchor destination at each end.

T

he federal Conservative government is in serious trouble, but it has one thing on its side — time.

The scandal over Senate expenses, and most crucially, over the prime minister’s chief of staff writing a $90,000 cheque to embarrassed Senator Mike Duffy, has shaken the Stephen Harper government deeply. There are more questions than answers, and investigations and resignations have not reduced the clamour for more detail. However, there are other issues that are causing trouble for the government. One that may not seem major at the moment is the resignation of MP Brent Rathgeber from the Conservative caucus, to sit as an independent. His tipping point was a private member’s bill was eviscerated by the unelected staffers in the prime minister’s office. In Rathgeber’s case, the bill was allowed to stand, but it was so fundamentally altered that it bore no resemblance to what he had proposed. For Rathgeber, who has a maverick streak (as an Alberta Conservative MLA, he voted against his government), it was too much. He left the party, while emphasizing that he still respects Harper and is quite likely to vote with the Conservatives on many issues.

Rathgeber could be the tiny pebble who begins a landslide, or his stance may go unremarked and unnoticed by the public and other MPs. A lot will depend on how other issues unfold. However, the Conservatives do have a few things going for them.

The House of Commons is set to adjourn for the summer, and most people will completely tune out federal politics. In addition, the two major opposition party leaders, Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau, are unlikely to cause much damage to

the government when Parliament is not sitting. They have no effective soapbox to stand on. The biggest thing in the government’s favour is the fact that an election isn’t scheduled until October, 2015. —Black Press

The scandal over Senate expenses is just one of Stephen Harper’s problems

L

ike those Japanese soldiers who didn’t hear about the end of World War II, the militant fringe that controls the B.C. Teachers’ Federation is digging in for endless battle against the B.C. government.

Their nemesis, Premier Christy Clark, reiterated upon seeing her government re-elected that seeking a 10-year agreement with the BCTF is a top priority when the legislature is recalled this summer.

The current one-year truce ends June 30. The BCTF grudgingly agreed to that extension last year, then ran TV ads calling for an NDP government that promised concessions and union bosses on both sides of the negotiating table. “You know, I may be a lame duck,” outgoing BCTF president Susan Lambert crowed to cheering classroom-warfare radicals at the union’s convention in March, “but I think Christy’s goose is cooked.” We’ll never know how much this sort of gloating contributed to the epic collapse of the NDP, champion of public sector union members whose pay and benefits make them the new upper class. But I can tell you the prospects for sparing children from this ideological warfare are not good. Last month the B.C. Court of Appeal handed down an ivory-tower decision that upheld the “right” of teachers to

bring their union demands into the classroom in the form of posters, buttons and black armbands that to some self-absorbed teachers symbolize the “death” of education. During the election campaign, The Globe and Mail carried a story on one of those mock elections held in schools around the province. An elementary-level student was quoted as saying she voted against the B.C. Liberals because Clark “caused a teachers’ strike.” If this kid was talking about the most recent strike, I wonder where she got that idea. In a negotiating performance that was appalling even by BCTF standards, Lambert and her team conducted months of disruptive work-to-rule action before they could even articulate a wage and benefit demand. When they finally did, it was outrageously out of touch with reality. An indication of how the union’s ruling class

wants to conduct itself in the classroom can be found in the latest issue of the BCTF newsletter to its members. Joanna Larson, president of the Prince Rupert union local, contributes an article headlined: “What kind of citizen do we hope to graduate from our K-12 public schools?” Larson first quotes the education ministry’s current goals. They include preparing citizens who are “creative, flexible, selfmotivated, and who have a positive self-image.” Another goal is citizens who are “skilled and who can contribute to society generally, including the world of work.” Larson then mocks these goals, as follows: “Essentially, the Ministry of Education has a vision of citizens who will maintain the status quo, not rock the boat, and participate on a superficial level in aspects of political and societal change. It doesn’t challenge individuals to take direct action against exploitation, marginaliza-

tion and violence.” In case you missed the political message, Larson later asserts: “The educated citizens we graduate from our schools cannot just be content to wear a pink shirt once a year…. Educated, engaged citizens must be willing to take direct action to change and shape our society for the better.” What is this ghastly “status quo” that must be challenged by “direct action”? In these campusradical screeds, the final answer is generally the same: capitalism. This call to arms is a blend of the NDP election platform and a rant from the Occupy Vancouver squat of a couple of years ago. It’s no wonder we hear of students making BCTF picket signs in art class.

Editor: Just so I know that have it right. Working Senators are given reimbursement for travel to and from their primary residence even though they are not sure exactly where they live; on the other hand, seniors in care facilities will pay an extra fee in September for the use of a wheelchair while in a care facility.

more shocking and very serious. The revelation of the $1 million fund in the PMO and Nigel Wright’s payment to Senator Duffy just reinforces the fact that Harper is not in charge. Our government MPs, including Richmond MP Alice Wong and Delta-Richmond East MP Kerry-Lynne Finlay, are useless, toothless trained seals. They are not representing their constituents, but subservient puppets for the PMO staffers to use and misuse. This is not good leadership or government or why we vote for MPs in the first place. And we wonder why fewer and fewer people go to the polls on election day. Will either of the Conservative MPs wade into the debate, or head for the hills? If they do wade in will they kowtow to the PMO or stand up for accountability, transparency, a stronger voice for MPs in Parliament, better more effective government and what their constituents want? I applaud the, now Independent MP, from Edmonton-St. Albert for his courage that reinforces and confirms what the majority of Canadians suspected is happening. Poor leadership, bad government, no accountability, transparency or voice in Ottawa. Louise Young Richmond

Editor: I thought that what amounts to an elected dictatorship system of government that we have in this country was bad enough, but it now turns out that we have all been fooled. Stephen Harper isn’t the one doing the dictating. As much as the Senate scandal is disturbing, the growing scandal in the office of the Prime Minister is more disturbing. Hats off to Brent Rathgeber, the MP from Edmonton-St. Albert, for standing up for his principles, government accountability, transparency and good government. He left no doubt about his reasons for leaving the caucus and put his political life on the line. Brought to the fore was the fact that the un-elected staffers in Ottawa have a free hand and don’t want there to be any accountability or transparency in government because that would mean putting restrains on that free hand with a loosening of their grip on power. We have all known for a long time that there is way too much power and influence in the office of the Prime Minister, but the fact that it isn’t the Prime Minister who exercises that power or the Conservative MPs who are actually governing makes the issue even

East of No. 3 Road continues to get ignored Editor: I’d like to agree with the letter “Better infrastructure should be part of Bridgeport renewal,” Letters, June 12. The city has been continually ignoring the whole area east of No. 3 Road and west of No. 6 Road north of Bridgeport, and this has led to more than one person referring to the area (in less polite terms) the “(rear) end of Richmond.” On No. 4 Road the sidewalk starts and stops, quite willy-nilly. The little bit of sidewalk that does exist is poorly maintained, and it took Grandma to give herself two black eyes from a fall before the city ground down the ridges due to faulty construction. River Road is a

an officer, “The city does not make money going after crackheads. Our budget is going towards traffic cops. If it were up to us we’d do something, but the budget doesn’t exist.” To this I asked if the neighbourhood would be better served by paying the mafia protection money; he suggested alarms. “That’ll just make them run faster” was my response. Realistically our neighbourhood is turning into Richmond’s answer to the Downtown Eastside, minus the culture. I actually find it strangely amusing that anyone would want to move into this new development going up on River Road. Miles Smart Richmond

mess of convoluted biking signage that’ll cause a horrible accident. No. 5 Road’s sidewalks north of Bridgeport are a badlands at night with the concrete ridges popping out 3 to 4 inches. Lastly, but not by any means the least of my worries, is the fact that the city does not deal with the squatters on Beckwith Road that have been stealing from almost every resident on Beckwith Road-myself included. Last time they made off with my chainsaw and weedwacker, but were so kind as to leave a dirty hypodermic needle in my parent’s yard. Everyone knows which house the trouble is emanating from but the police are not doing anything, because to quote

Editor: I read with much excitement that our Richmond Oval has...(drum roll)... made a “profit “! Of course, such positive news makes one wish to do Olympic-calibre cartwheels. I , as a Richmond taxpayer/oval shareholder, naively thought I would go and “kick the tires” and see how our communal investment portfolio is going first hand. However, lo and behold, upon inquiry, I found that my attempt at personal due diligence regarding my share of oval investment would cost me, at minimum, $16! Yes, peering inside from the oval's outside like a humble pleb is free of charge, as is viewing from a small “crow’s nest” viewing area at the

oval's south end accessed from the main entrance area. However, should you wish to simply walk around the inside of the oval, but not at all participate, this works out to be the minimum $16 charge for older adults. On the one hand, such a “cover charge” to simply enter and independently peruse a publicly-owned facility must be a gold medal winner on the global scale. Or, more accurately and succinctly, on a de-facto basis, the Richmond Oval is nothing more than a taxpayer–subsidized private club and a white elephant monument to political and bureaucratic egos.

People underappreciate the value of our history Editor: Re: “Letter writers should reveal their biases,” Letters, June 12. I was somewhat taken aback when Paul Downs called my objectivity into question due to my past experience with the Delta Museum and Archives. I’ll confess, that I have, in the past, worked in the museums and heritage field. In fact, I was also the manager of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site in Steveston. However, I am no longer employed in the sector, and am not a member of any society board related to museums or heritage. I have no potential financial gain or vested interest in a new Richmond Museum. My support is based solely upon my personal apprecia-

tion in the value historical appreciation. On the other hand, my 11 years of experience in the field have given me a tremendous insight into the value to a community of heritage preservation and interpretation. I have found that people are more engaged with their community when they know its history, and how it became what it is today. I also learned that many people underappreciate the value of our history. The attitude that “Eh, it’s Richmond—I’ve been here all my life, how interesting could the history be “ is unfortunately, all too prevalent. Exacerbating that situation in Richmond is the very high proportion of residents who have no direct connection to our his-

tory. The challenge to engage them is even greater. As I noted in my previous letter, one method may be to extract their own personal stories of their journeys to Richmond, their connections back to their homelands, and the reasons why they chose to live here. These connections naturally lead to partnerships with museums in other countries, and the po-

tential for fascinating travelling exhibits. Richmond has a tremendous opportunity to leverage the incredible infrastructure built for the 2010 Olympics, and a new museum would function as one of the final pieces of the puzzle in the creation of a true regional urban centre. I would hope that the fact that I have a past career in museums and heritage would validate, rather than taint my opinions on this matter. Mark Sakai Richmond

But I’m only doing this because I trust you to sign up for an account. Honour system and all that. Fast forward to the new book by motherdaughter writing team Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella, called Meet Me at Emotional Baggage Claim. True to form, it’s funny. Not wet your pants funny, but tickle your funny bone, funny. In it, the two women chronicle their day-to-day relationship, together and apart. Apparently, their writing style using onesentence paragraphs has taken off. Big time. But don’t quote me. See for yourself. In the short narrative called “Doggie Universe” Lisa describes her sleeping arrangement with her dogs. Apparently they get jealous easily, but “Peace is maintained if one dog sleeps on either side, with me in the middle, like a postmenopausal Switzerland.” The chapter called “Boxers or Briefs” is very

funny, and dispels the notion that women are even remotely interested in seeing cellphone photos of men’s “junk”. She says: “Call us…Tell us we’re beautiful. Say that you’re thinking of us. Offer to paint our house. Or if a man is too shy to call, he should text something. I’d be totally turned on by a text that read: SEE YOU TOMORROW TO TAKE OUT YOUR TRASH.” Another good book is Everything is Perfect When You’re a Liar by Canadian writer Kelly Oxford. It’s hilarious. I read it in one hour. OK I lied. I’m only on page 91. But so far it’s funny. I’ll tell more next week. If you register on our new website www.yourfuturelibrary.ca. There, it’s a deal!

A 5 Step Skin Care Regimen – by Peter Tong, Skin Care Pharmacist Step 1: Cleanse skin with soap free cleanser. Regular soaps or cleansers containing sodium lauryl sulfate can change the pH of the skin and cause skin to become more prone to irritation. Recommendation: La Roche Posay Toleriane Dermo Cleanser or the all natural Dr. Hauschka Gentle Milk Cleanser. Step 2: Exfoliate only with alcohol free toners or products containing glycolic acid. Avoid any physical scrubs or products containing salicylic acid as they can exfoliate off good skin and lead to redness and irritation. Recommendation: Lierac Paris Alcohol-free Radiance Toner or Neostrata Level 2 Smoothing Cream. Step 3: Treat your skin condition. Whatever you are trying to treat, this is the time to use that product. For example, if you want to ward off wrinkles, use your anti-wrinkle cream here. Or if you want to treat dark spots on the skin, apply here. Recommendation for wrinkles: Lierac Exclusive Anti-wrinkle Serum or Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Serum. Recommendation for dark spots: Di Morelli Skin Brightener and Vitamin C serum. Step 4: Moisturize you skin. Recommendation: Linacare Transforming Face Cream. Step 5: Apply a mineral-containing Sunblock. Recommendation: La Roche Posay Anthelios Sunscreen or Di Morelli SPF 45 moisturizing sunblock.

New exhibit opens at Gulf of Georgia Steveston has long been the heart of the fishing industry in B.C. and it is therefore a fitting host for the exhibit Ryoshi – Nikkei Fishermen of the B.C. Coast, which opened last weekend at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site. The exhibit examines the many contributions Japanese Canadians have made to fishing in BC, from the 1870’s to present day. From fishing, to canning, to boat building, Japanese Canadians were involved in all aspects of fishing along the coast, despite efforts from other groups to deter and discourage them. The story is told through exhibits, artifacts and video that bring alive the struggles and triumphs of the Nikkei in B.C.

Ryoshi will be on display at the Cannery to April 2014. Created by the Nikkei National Museum, Ryoshi is supported by the Nikkei Fishermen’s Reunion Project, the BC Arts Council, G&F Financial Group, Canadian Fishing Company and the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society. The Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site of Canada is operated by the non-profit Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, on behalf of Parks Canada. Location: 12138 Fourth Avenue, Richmond (Steveston Village). Admission: Adults $7.80, Seniors $6.55, Children $3.90, under 6 years free. Family Admission: $19.60.

From Page 17 In the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Richmond Hospital’s most vulnerable patients are benefiting from two donor-funded therapy beds and a new ventilator. The therapy beds will help our patients facing life-threatening illnesses or accidents feel as comfortable as possible, with the ability to help keep the patient’s skin cool and dry, to weigh patients for drug or fluid measurements, and to allow the bed to deflate quickly in case a patient requires emergency care. The new ventilator helps keep patients alive by moving air into and out of their lungs when they are unable to breathe sufficiently on their own.

TOP SAFETY PICK

stroke patients recover faster from what is often a devastating and disabling medical emergency. Thanks to donors, Richmond Hospital was able to purchase equipment that serves to assess and treat typical speech and swallowing disorders that stroke patients often face. With your help, we also funded equipment for mobility to help stroke patients relearn how to walk and improve coordination without the fear of falling. We are especially excited about upcoming improvements to our operating rooms. This summer, Richmond Hospital will double the total number of minimally invasive surgical suites from two to four, made possible by donations totaling more than $3.5 million. By increasing Richmond Hospital’s minimally-invasive surgical capacity, more patients can benefit from the advantages this type of surgery offers over traditional surgery. From patients facing prostate cancer to emergencies like appendicitis, minimally invasive surgery is a surgical innovation that’s available because of donors. We are thrilled to be able to support the work of our highly skilled medical teams because of your generosity. To help us continue to fund vital medical equipment and improve patient care services, please make a donation by calling 604-244-5252 or visit our website at www.richmondhospitalfoundation.com. Every dollar raised serves our community. Thank you for making health care in Richmond a priority. We’re fortunate to have such a great hospital and health care team so close to home. It’s important that all of us play a role. Please tell us your own story. If you have had a positive life-changing experience at Richmond Hospital, we would love to hear from you. Please email us at info@richmondhospitalfoundation.com. Natalie D. Meixner is president and CEO of Richmond Hospital Foundation. Her column appears monthly in The Richmond Review.

father’s day

Go fishing for Father’s Day From June 14 to 16, fishing without a license is not only legal, it’s encouraged, thanks to B.C.’s 14th Annual Family Fishing Weekend. The province-wide event, presented by The Family Fishing Society of BC and hosted by volunteer led community groups, is part of an ongoing effort to get more people hooked on fishing and appreciative of our tremendous aquatic and marine resources. Family Fishing Weekend is a once-a-year opportunity to fish BC’s lakes, rivers, streams and tidal waters for free, compliments of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. DFO is also offering free saltwater fishing over Fathers’ Day weekend. As with the provincial program, certain regulations apply. For regulation details please visit www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca or www.gofishbc.com. The 14th annual Family Fishing Weekend is made possible by financial support from the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. and the Province of British Columbia. Material and volunteer donations are made by numerous likeminded organizations and businesses, and by all the communities that host events. In addition to free fishing, the weekend will be celebrated with 50 specific community events across the province, many featuring the Freshwater Fish-

eries Society’s popular “Learn to Fish” sessions. Events will be held across B.C., including Berry’s Bait & Tackle Trout Pond at 14651 Westminster Hwy. in Richmond, the Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery in Abbotsford, Cultus Lake in Chilliwack, Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam, Salmon Lake in Langley, Rice Lake in North Vancouver, and Lakeside Park at Alta Lake in Whistler. A complete list of participating communities, locations and event descriptions, along with step-by-step fishing

instructions and regulations can be found at www.bcfamilyfishing. com. “These events offer a great opportunity to learn about and how to fish in a fun and supervised environment,” said executive director of the Family Fishing Society of B.C., Owen Bird. “The hundreds of volunteers who organize and participate in these events are passionate about fishing and even more passionate about passing on their love of the sport. They really are the heart of Family Fish-

ing Weekend.” The Family Fishing Society of BC was established in 2001 to encourage new anglers as well as promote and coordinate Family Fishing Weekend and other angling initiatives targeted toward families and young people. In 2012, the Society was honoured to receive the National Recreational Fisheries Award by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, in recognition of its efforts to introduce thousands of young people and families to the sport.

From Page 23 “We’re grateful to our sponsors and donors who help ensure our patients receive the very best care whenever they might need it close to home.” Some of the funds raised this year will support the hospital foundation’s efforts to help purchase new medical equipment for the Pulmonary Function Laboratory, which performs complete evaluations of a patient’s respiratory system through a host of on-site diagnostic tools. Funds raised through the Fund-A-Need segment of the golf tournament will support the foundation’s efforts to help purchase new equipment to replace the lab’s aging “Breathing Box,” which is a vital tool to help assess, diagnose and treat lung disease. According to the World Health Organization, lung disease is the fourth most common cause of death worldwide and is estimated soon to become the third most common. “Lung disease is a serious and growing problem in Richmond,” said Dr. Iqbal Ahmed,director of the Pulmonary Function Laboratory at Richmond Hospital. “We are sincerely grateful for the support today to help improve our diagnostic services for patients with lung disease in our community.”

A group of neighbours have adopted a traffic roundabout at Dayton and Heather Street with the support of the City of Richmond. The roundabout was neglected for many years and was used as a spot to throw garbage. Residents Lynda and Dan Pasacreta, Sharon and Ron Meredith, and Wendy Taylor contacted the city and asked for permission to adopt this sad little garden. The city helped by providing new soil and plants based on the neighbours’ design. As people travel around this little roundabout on their way to somewhere, the gardeners get lots of ‘thank-you’s’ and kind words. No one is throwing garbage in this delightful garden now.

Visit Dr. Greg Nelson in the morning, have the “Mini-Implant System” placed in less than two hours, then go out and enjoy your favourite lunch. What are MDI Implants? The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and the retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micromobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.

Richmond Devils Play On! Locals win regional Elite Female Division to qualify for Hockey Night In Canada’s national 4-on-4 street hockey finals in September by Don Fennell Sports Editor The Richmond Devils will be taking their game to the Maritimes in September, after qualifying to play in Hockey Night In Canada’s Play On! national championships. The local Senior A women’s ice hockey team overcame an early obstacle to win the Elite Female Division at Hockey Night in Canada’s Play On! Vancouver Sunday in Coquitlam, earning them a trip to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia for the national finals Sept. 26 to 28. Though they entered the annual 4-on-4 event (which featured more than 350 teams in a variety of divisions) with the sole goal of having some fun, a 7-4 opening-game loss

to the Goaldiggers only served to further inspire the Richmond reps. They went on to post a pair of 8-7 and 3-2 shootout victories over the B.C. Stars and Wellwoods respectively, before topping the Goaldiggers 3-1 in the semifinals and defeating the Stars 5-2 in the championship game. “We went into the event just hoping for some great competition and an enjoyable weekend, I don’t think we really expected to win,” said Natalie Korenic. “There was a lot of talent and we really had some tough fought games. Overall it was an amazing event.” Added Renée Roman: “We worked really well together, playing with intensity while still having fun. We worked hard and were

able to really showcase our skills and it paid off by winning, which was a bonus.” Jodie Wong, who says she can’t wait to play again next year, thought the tournament was well put together and featured great competition. Those sentiments were echoed by captain Carly Millman, who teammates affectionately call “Grandma” as a sign of respect to the 27-year-old and her outstanding leadership skills. “The organization was very impressive and as first-time participants it truly was a fantastic experience,” said Millman. “It was an excellent way to showcase the amazing talent of women’s hockey,” concluded Sabrina Wong.

Walkable living in Langley

Willoughby Town Centre welcomes Kensington By Kerry Vital

Willoughby Town Centre is rapidly becoming a vibrant gathering place as Langley’s first truly walkable neighbourhood. Now it’s adding its first residential component with Kensington, a 65-unit apartment building. The community, developed by Qualico in partnership with Chow & Li, will provide shopping, dining and high-quality living, all in one spot. “We tried to make sure that there’s a floorplan for everyone,” says Diane Zarola, Sales and Marketing Manager for Qualico. Willoughby Town Centre will soon be an integral part of Langley. Thus far, confirmed tenants include Shoppers Drug Mart, Sassy Nail Salon, RBC, G&F Financial, Noma Sushi Restaurant, Rendevous Liquor Store and Loblaw’s: Your Independent Grocer, the first in the neighbourhood. There will also be an entire building devoted mainly to medical and dental offices. “We are so thrilled to have all these services,” Zarola says. “It’s going to be a very socially active community.” Qualico asked Facebook users what they’d like to see at Willoughby Town Centre. Suggestions included a yoga studio, coffee shops, a pub, and small clothing boutiques. Kensington itself will include ground-level commercial space, three stories of condominium homes, ranging from 660 to 1,360 square feet and 18 different one- and two-bedroom floorplans. “People are absolutely in love with our finishings,” says Zarola. “These are very well-thought-out plans.” Among the amazing finishes at Kensington are kitchens filled with maple shaker-style cabinetry, granite or quartz countertops complemented by a ceramic tile backsplash and marble mosaic accent tile, and stainless-steel appliances. Zarola also notes that Qualico has included convenient fullwall pantries in some homes. “Wherever we could fit them, they’re there!” she says. The bathrooms are equally elegant, most with a spacious five-foot shower with rain shower head, rectangular undermount sink and floating vanity in the ensuite. The main bathrooms feature their own undermount sink, quartz countertops and deep soaker tub with textured ceramic tile. The nine-foot ceilings in your new

We are so thrilled to have all these services,” says Diane Zarola, Sales and Marketing Manager for Qualico. “It’s going to be a very socially active community.” home lend an incredible sense of space and airiness, while the generous patios (truly huge on the second floor) are made for entertaining. Chic laminate flooring blends seamlessly into the plush carpeting in the bedrooms. You’ll also appreciate the contemporary pot lighting throughout your home, which perfectly illuminates your tasks and gives a cleaner look to the ceiling. Every home also includes a den or tech nook perfect for a home office or as extra space for all of your gadgets. “People just adore this space,” Zarola says. “It’s ... very workable.” You’ll also find a front-load washer and dryer included as well.

Before buying compare space & water heating costs When you’re house-hunting, choosing a home with natural gas for space and water heating can save you money. Believe it at fortisbc.com/calculator. *These are approximate savings based on the difference between annual natural gas and electricity costs for space and water heating of a 2,300 square-foot house with average insulation and four occupants in the FortisBC Lower Mainland service area. Calculation compared standard-efficiency natural gas furnace and large storage tank water heater with electric furnace and equivalent water heater and is based on FortisBC natural gas rates as of May 2013 ($9.35/GJ) and electricity rates in the service area identified (Tier 1 and 2: $0.071 and $0.109 per kWh). Actual savings may vary. Savings do not include potential rebates and/or incentives.

On Sunday, June 9 at Richmond Alliance Church on No. 3 Road the Christian & Missionary Alliance Church in Canada ordained a woman for the first time in its 126-year history. Now-Reverend Eunice G. Smith has served with the denomination for over 60 years, including stretches in Ecuador and Mexico with her husband Cecil. Most recently she has served as a chaplain at Minoru Residence, and continues to teach and lead various activities at the church. The denomination moved last summer to begin formally ordaining women, who have always had an active life in the work of the church. Pictured here, Eunice receives her certificate of Ordination from District Superintendent Brian Thom.

BMO Bank of Montreal presented the Richmond Youth Concert Band with $950 to help members attend a band retreat this fall in Harrison Hot Springs. From left: Logan Numerow, Christa Grochowski (vice-president), Hans Havas (president), Gavin Grochowski, David Fromager (band director), Ben Mumerow, Sharon Mercer (BMO parent volunteer) and Susan Numerow (secretary).

Tickle Me Pickle Improv Group held a show last month and all proceeds were contributed to Richmond Family Place. Anne Murdoch, Jesslyn Pyne and Kim Winchell accepted the cheque on behalf of Richmond Family Place.

More than 300 people attended the opening celebration of Seniors Week at Cambie Community Centre on Monday, June 3. After Mayor Malcolm Brodie got the event underway, guests enjoyed a medley of cultural entertainment and a unique selection of refreshments from around the world. Seniors Week wrapped up June 7 with a Tea Dance at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver.

Lord Byng Elementary School’s Cash for Clothes (and housewares) drive was a win-win all around. The fundraiser helped keep unwanted items out of the landfill while benefiting a local charity and the school Parents Advisory Council. A joint project with the Developmental Disabilities Association, the charity in turn paid the school cash for full bags of clothing and miscellaneous household items. In total, the school raised $1221 for its PAC while donating 407 bags to this worthwhile while teaching students to reduce, reuse and recycle.

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A mall cop turned mall doc at Aberdeen Centre last Saturday afternoon. And although he isn’t a father yet, security supervisor Jason Meszaros probably felt a similar type of joy when he came to the rescue of a woman who suddenly went into labour next to a second-floor escalator, making for a simply unforgettable story. Aberdeen Centre’s Joey Kwan said the incident began to unfold between 3 and 4 p.m. on June 8, when a pregnant woman’s water suddenly broke. Mall security immediately rushed to the scene, and Meszaros jumped in to assist, putting on gloves to prepare for the miracle of child birth. As they awaited the arrival of emergency crews, a 911 operator walked Meszaros through the process, and on cue, he reminded the woman to breathe and push at the right moments. Through it all, Meszaros, a supervisor for the past five years, and a security guard for 13 years, managed to remain calm, cool and collected. Born before the arrival of firefighters and paramedics was a healthy bouncing baby boy. His mother was fine too. They were taken to hospital on Saturday, and have since been discharged. The chaos of diverting the customers away from the scene, and the drama of the childbirth, meant there was no time to even take down names, Kwan said. So as of Thursday afternoon, they have no idea who the woman is. “It was an amazing and phenomenal situation for us,” Kwan said. “This is not happening every day.”

Martin van den Hemel photo It was a happy birthday for a newborn and his mother at Aberdeen Centre on Saturday afternoon, where the miracle of child birth still has the mall buzzing. The auspicious event has left mall retailers in a giving mood, including Saint Germain Bakery, which will give the boy a free birthday cake every year until he’s 18, says Joey Kwan. Security supervisor Jason Meszaros, at rear, was glad he could help.

Kwan said she’d like to reach out to the new mother, in hopes of making another delivery, this time in the form of an abundance of presents from the merchants at Aberdeen. But out of respect for the woman, who might still feel overwhelmed, Kwan said she’ll completely respect her privacy if she chooses not to speak to the media, and will keep her name confidential too.

she’s even willing to deliver the goods to the family’s home personally. The Richmond Review has learned that the woman and her family, of Vietnamese origin, wish to remain anonymous. Having a baby boy delivered in a mall is considered an auspicious event, Kwan said. The fact it was the eighth day of the month probably didn’t escape notice. The mall’s bakery, Saint Germain Bakery,

has pledged to provide a birthday cake for every birthday the boy celebrates until he’s 18. And a new restaurant tenant in the mall, Gangnam Northern Chinese Cuisine, is donating a table to celebrate the child’s 100th day birthday, considered among those of Chinese ancestry as an important event. Daiso will also be presenting the newborn a 100-item gift, Kwan said.
