2012 city council expenses

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Mayor Malcolm Brodie’s salary climbed 7.8 per cent last year and city council’s expenses tripled, according to financial documents revealed Monday at city hall. Richmond’s five-term mayor collected $117,165 in 2012. That’s a 46 per cent increase over 2006, when council approved an initial salary hike and regular pay raises based on inflation and what politicians elsewhere are making. Brodie earned just $80,082 then. City councillors also got more money last year. Their salaries rose 5.2 per cent to $54,992—a 72-percent increase in seven years. Meanwhile, the Consumer Price Index—an indicator of changes in prices of goods and services—rose just 1.3 per cent in Metro Vancouver last year, and 2.3 per cent the previous year. “You’d be hard pressed to find people in Richmond who would say council is doing a 72 per cent better job than in 2006, or the mayor doing a 46 per cent better job,” said Jordan Bateman, B.C. director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. Every three years, the city compares Richmond council’s salaries with those of Burnaby, Surrey, Coquitlam, Delta and Abbotsford,

•Mayor Malcolm Brodie: $10,766 •Coun. Harold Steves: $10,049 •Coun. Bill McNulty: $8,871 •Coun. Chak Au: $6,498 •Coun. Linda McPhail: $6,479 •Coun. Ken Johnston: $3,629 •Coun. Derek Dang: $3,536 •Coun. Linda Barnes: $503 •Coun. Evelina HalseyBrandt: $246 according to Mayor Brodie. Richmond council members’ salaries are then raised to put them among the top 25 per cent paid civic politicians. But Bateman said such comparisons are of a false market. “It’s not like municipalities are competing for councillor talent. You don’t have the option to move over to Delta council if you can get a better gig.” Bateman suggested a panel of average citizens could better determine council’s wages, which are continually being pushed up by comparisons. “It’s almost irrelevant what other jurisdictions pay. The only time you ever hear it touted—what other jurisdictions pay—is when it’s higher than what your city pays and your councillor wants more money,” he said. Brodie said remuneration should be fair, and about the only way to determine that is to consider cost of living and the wages of other councils. See Page 3

Attack of the giant hogweed? One 10-metre long clump of dangerous weed towers more than two metres tall by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter On Tuesday, while Takuo Hashizume was out cycling the trail at Terra Nova Natural Area in West Richmond, he noticed what he described as “some suspicious plants.” He believes he stumbled upon several patches of highly toxic giant hogweed, based on a short seminar he took on poisonous plants a few years ago.

As the patches, including one that stretches 10 metres long, sit alongside a popular walking and cycling trail, he’s wondering why someone hasn't noticed this before given its likely been growing there for years. And he’s worried the general public might be at risk, particularly young children and those unaware of the dangers of the potentially blinding weed, located a stone’s throw from numerous backyards. “It’s very toxic and if you touch skin... you might get burned or if it contacts the eye, you might lose sight,” Hashizume said. There are at least four patches of the towering plants, most about 1.8 metres tall, but one more mature clump that’s more than three metres high. A group of women who happened to be walking along the trail when The

Richmond Review was being escorted to the sight, said they recognized the weed a long time ago based on earlier media coverage about giant hogweed. City spokesperson Ted Townsend said giant hogweed is an ongoing problem in the Lower Mainland, and the city has an action plan to deal with sightings. He urges residents to email photos of giant hogweed, along with their location, to invasiveplants@ richmond.ca or call the invasive plant hotline at 604-276-4316. There's also information on the city's website at richmond.ca. "The public shouldn't take this into their own hands, literally, because it is poisonous and can cause some problems if they handle it and get it on their bare skin," Townsend said. See Page 3

Community pays tribute to Norman Norman Wrigglesworth recognized for his contributions to health care by Don Fennell Staff Reporter The seats in the Ralph Fisher Auditorium at Richmond Hospital were filled Tuesday, as friends and medical professionals said thank you to longtime local resident and health advocate Norman Wrigglesworth. The colourful 87-year-old recently made a significant donation to Richmond Hospital, and the afternoon tea was a chance to recognize his contribution and share some time with the popular Richmondite who became a well-known community activist—particularly against smoking. He and his late wife Shirley were recognized by the Richmond Hospital Foundation. “I joined the Richmond Hospital Foundation two years ago in September, and shortly after I got here I was working away in my office one day and heard this voice out in the lobby,” recalled president and chief executive officer Natalie Meixner. “Here was this tall, distinguished gentleman wearing his medals saying ‘I want to speak to the woman in charge.’ Norman had a list of recommendations and questions (about the hospital).” “I want to know why the lights are on in the parkade and waiting room when nobody is here on the weekend,” Wrigglesworth demanded. Meixner graciously took the list and met with the hospital’s maintenance manager. Together, they reviewed Wrigglesworth’s requests and when he returned a few weeks alter, armed with another list, they informed him of the changes that were being implemented. “Thank you, Norman, for being bold enough to ask questions because it’s what helps make us all better,” Meixner said. “Norman has (also) been a champion for not smoking for a long time and you’ve seen changes in our society (toward that) because of people like Norman.” Meixner said Wriggleworth’s legacy gift will continue to help improve things for others, including patients at the hospital who will benefit today and in the future from his vi-

sion and generosity. On hand for this week’s tea, Coun. Linda McPhail said she’s had the pleasure of knowing Wrigglesworth for at least a decade, and appreciates his passion and caring nature. Many know about his efforts to positively increase awareness of the dangers of smoking—he constructed the world’s largest no-smoking sign—she said, but he’s also a veteran of World War II who has always been willing to share his experiences—especially youth—so that we don’t forget the sacrifices made to save democracy. “I hope your generosity will encourage others in the community to follow your footsteps,” McPhail told Wrigglesworth. John O’Sullivan also spoke passion-

ately about his close friend of two-plus decades, while suggesting Wrigglesworth—orphaned at the age of seven—is the epitome of someone from Yorkshire— ”demonstrating a divine right to be straightforward and forthright in everything they do.” “I’m delighted to share time with you here today because when you go back as long as we do, a quarter century, it’s nice to have you in the spotlight and be here with friends and people you’ve honoured with your donations and your contributions,” O’Sullivan told Wrigglesworth, seated directly in front of him. “We met at Toastmasters International in the 1980s, back when there was only one club (today there are more than 15) in the area. I won-

Hogweed can be confused with cow parsnip From Page 1 Gail Wallin, executive director of the Invasive Species Council of B.C., said it’s hard to say whether giant hogweed is becoming more of a problem. While there are more reports of the toxic plant, that doesn’t mean there is more of it in the wild, as there’s also more awareness of the toxic plant today. “In some areas, people didn’t know what it was,” she explained. Each plant can produce up to 100,000 winged seeds that remain viable in the soil for up to 15 years, according to the Invasive Species Council of British Columbia’s website (bcinvasives.ca). The giant hogweed stem hairs, leaves and flowers contain a “clear, highly toxic sap that, when in contact with the skin, can cause burns, blisters and scarring,” the website states. When toxin-exposed skin is exposed to sunlight, that can cause welts, rashes and blistering that looks like third-degree burns. Exposed skin can remain sensitive to sunlight for up to 10 years. If the toxin gets into the eyes, it can cause blindness. It’s also described as a highly invasive species that poses “significant human health risks” and has an ecological impact as well, by outcompeting other plants. Giant hogweed can be confused with cow parsnip, with distinguishing features including the shape of the leaves, the height of the much taller giant hogweed, the shape of the seeds and the stem. A great local video is available on YouTube

dered at the time why Norman, a retired carpenter—would want to go to Toastmasters but I then realized he had a message and a mission. He probably single-handedly ran the non-smoking campaign in the days when it was dark and he had to clear many hurdles.” Thanking Meixner, the Richmond Hospital Foundation and B.C. Cancer Society for this recognition, Wrigglesworth said he’s pleased with the positive difference his campaign against smoking has made. “After the First World War the smoking rate was about 30 per cent, and now the BC Cancer Society has a goal for reducing the smoking rate from 14 to nine per cent by 2018,” he said enthusiastically. “I hope this will continue.”

‘I just don’t know that there is a satisfactory way to do it’ From Page 1 “Each city will have its own challenges, and from time to time, each city will have the hardest amongst the group,” he said. “I just don’t know that there is a satisfactory way to do it.” Elsewhere in Metro Vancouver, politicians recently voted to cut their own wages. Effective July 1, Surrey school trustees will earn $200 less per year, to fall in line with the current 0.8 per cent drop in the Consumer Price Index. In addition to salary, Richmond’s mayor earned $8,750 in benefits in 2012 and charged taxpayers $10,766 for expenses. Together, city council racked up $50,576 in expenses in 2012, a year when most civic politicians travelled to Xia-

men, China for the signing of a sister city agreement with Richmond. Behind Brodie, councillors Harold Steves and Bill McNulty were council’s top spenders. Both councillors made the Xiamen trip, and also travelled to the Japanese cities of Wakayama—a longtime sister city of Richmond—and Onagawa, a tsunami-ravaged village that received donations from local fundraising efforts. Former councillor Sue Halsey-Brandt received a $43,066 retiring allowance last year. Halsey-Brandt chose not to run again in 2011 after serving 10 years on council. Greg Halsey-Brandt, a former mayor and MLA who returned for a single term as a councillor in 2008, received a retiring allowance of $15,845.

Multicultural Heritage Celebration Made In Canada Saturday, June 29 Richmond Cultural Centre

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Here’s a new one: If at first you don’t succeed, don’t even bother trying again. That advice could have certainly been used by Li N. Yang, who was fined $7,500 in Richmond provincial court last week after pleading guilty to evading the payment of duties and taxes on two occasions just a month apart. A little over a year ago, Yang returned to Canada via the Vancouver International Airport, and declared that she’d only brought back $450 worth of goods. But upon further inspection following her March 2012 flight, officers found a Christian Dior handbag worth an estimated—are you sitting down?—$14,252.

Yang later admitted that she had purchased the bag on her trip. The bag was then seized. The negative experience didn’t deter Yang, apparently. A month later, she arrived at the Peace Arch crossing, and was referred to a secondary examination. She claimed she’d made no purchases in the U.S., but a closer inspection revealed otherwise. Turns out, she’d purchased a number of high ends goods worth an estimated—are you laying down?—$40,500. Not only did the border services officer seize the goods, they seized her vehicle as well, with terms of release of more than $6,000. Last week’s court fine of $7,500 was the equivalent in duties and taxes she tried to avoid paying. But her headache doesn’t end there. She’ll also have to compensate Canada Border Services by paying them penalties ranging from 25 to 80 per cent of the value of the seized items. So, in Yang’s case, she will be looking at a fine of between—hang on now— $10,950.40 and $43,801.60. Certainly an expensive mistake to make, and unforgettable indeed.

Federal funding to safeguard seniors $25,000 grant to Volunteer Richmond for elder abuse awareness campaign by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Volunteer Richmond Information Services has received a $25,000 grant from the federal government to help raise awareness about elder abuse. On Wednesday, Richmond MP Alice Wong, who is also minister of state for seniors, helped make the funding announcement, and noted the money is coming from the New Horizons for Seniors Program, through which eligible organizations can receive up to $25,000 in grant funding annually. “Many organizations in Canada are committed to helping seniors maintain a high quality of life and to helping them continue to be active, participating members of their communities,” Wong said. Mary Kemmis, president of Volunteer Richmond and publisher of The Richmond Review, said: “It will allow us to address the growing concern of elder financial abuse, particularly when it’s caused by the exploitation of powers of attorney. We’ll be able to educate seniors and their family members on how to prevent this form of abuse, with a focus on Richmond’s ethno-cultural communities.” Wong said there are resources and support for seniors to deal with elder abuse. Wong said during one of the round tables held on the topic, a victim came forward to talk about how her brother had obtained power of attorney over her father’s financial affairs, and was abusing it.

“He was not getting the kind of care, or actually even her father’s money. So she had to fight, even to the court, to make sure that she has the ability to care for her father with her father’s own money.” People who are given power of attorney should know about the legal implications and responsibilities that come with it, she said. “They will produce materials, in very simple layman’s language, how the seniors should plan and use the power of attorney,” she said. “When people have the power to make their own decisions, that is the right time to plan ahead. And then they need the tools, they need to know how it functions,” Wong added. “They want people to be aware of the importance of doing it properly and also to protect themselves from being abused.”

Stanley Cup rioter breached probation Stanley Cup rioter Camille Cacnio has been found guilty of breaching the terms of her probation order. Last year, the Richmond resident pled guilty to participating in a riot and was handed a suspended twoyear sentence and ordered to perform 150 hours of community service. She had been caught on video taking a pair of pants from a Black & Lee store in downtown Vancouver on June 15, 2011. In January, Cacnio was found out past her curfew after police pulled her car over because the headlights were off. Cacnio has been sentenced to one day in jail for breaching conditions, but was credited with time already served since she was jailed after being found in breach of her probation.

EDITORIAL: NDP at the crossroads

T

he provincial NDP is at a crossroads, and whichever direction it chooses is fraught with challenges.

Not only did the party lose an election that almost everyone expected it would win, it lost a number of key ridings, particularly in the Interior and Lower Mainland suburbs. It also lost in Oak Bay-Gordon Head, where Green Party candidate Andrew Weaver was elected. Weaver is a well-known scientist who is articulate and knowledgeable. He will almost certainly help build on the Green Party beachhead which began when na-

tional leader Elizabeth May won a Vancouver Island seat in the 2011 federal election. The NDP has much to fear from the Greens, who appeal to many younger and environmentallyminded people. The NDP, by contrast, often has difficulty moving beyond its massive debt to organized labour, which has very conflicting views on the environmental movement. The past election showed that many union members, particularly those whose jobs are related to resource extraction, voted Liberal. The NDP could shift to a more environmentally-based party and leave these voters behind perma-

nently. But if the party did so, they would be playing catch-up with the Greens. Or the NDP could move in the direction of being much more robust in supporting economic development. While this would appeal to a large core of voters, the party would likely be saying goodbye to many of its environmentally-minded voters. The provincial NDP risk being caught in the squeeze that the federal Liberals were in after the 2011 election. The Liberals were outmuscled by the Conservatives on the jobs and economy front, and by the federal NDP on the labour, environment

and social issues front. It was the party’s worst showing ever. The B.C. NDP must decide if Adrian Dix will remain as leader. Dix did not give much indication that he is going to resign, at the weekend provincial council meeting. If he stays on as leader, there is almost certain to be a vicious internal fight within the NDP, which will likely lead to a very divided party. That would leave it in even worse shape to deal with the changes that are in the wind on the provincial political scene. Premier Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals are watching the NDP angst with undisguised enthusiasm.

The hidden history of the Garden City Lands

Digging Deep Jim Wright

H

istory matters. That includes Garden City Lands history.

Mary Phillips, a past chair of the Richmond Poverty Response Committee, wrote the Review about it. “I am alarmed,” she said, “that the city’s website on planning for the Garden City Lands contains none of the recent history of the lands and the long fight to keep it in the Agricultural Land Reserve.” At the same time, the project team held a “stakeholders meeting.” Though very well led, it was sapped by symptoms of the blanked-out history. For instance, there were anti-ALR “stakeholders,” still bent on big buildings and dense residential on the lands. For those who remember it, the history shows that as a costly path to nowhere. But, as Mary has alerted us, the history has been blanked out. It’s as though there were no mistakes to learn from. I’d best fill in the time (2005 on) when the community rallied to defend the lands. People like you and me had to take on power-

Updates to the 2007 Sustainable Food Systems Park proposal for the Garden City Lands have adapted some of the illustrated features for a better ALR fit. For a large colour graphic and a link to the proposal, visit RichmondReview.com.

ful parties that tried to take away the rightful ALR status of the Garden City Lands. We brought out the ALR values. The Agricultural Land Commission agreed with our view and rejected the other one. Sounds simple, but the tasks were immense. Sadly, we had to overcome our own corporate city. It’s an instructive part of our history, and we need the city to heed it, not hide it. Mary Phillips’ letter also recalled the genesis of the Sustainable Food Systems Park. I think the 2007 illustration (above) radiates the spirit of a unique central park that’s beautiful and bountiful.

Note, though, that the uses shown were later refined for a better ALR fit. When poverty response and food security came together with ecology and open-land recreation to conserve the Garden City Lands, the people looked to enable all those ALR uses to succeed together. That’s seen in later updates to the proposal, which also goes well with Garden City Conservation’s PARC concept that respects nature as a wise guide to what’s best where. The Sustainable Food Systems Park calls for education partners. Our local college, now Kwantlen Polytechnic University, stepped up in

early 2008, and council asked staff to look into 48 acres of the Garden City Lands for the sustainable agriculture program. Director Kent Mullinix, PhD, recently wowed a Garden City gathering with his program’s vision. Along with education and research, its goals feature community outreach. That’s key. Speaking of goals, have a look at the Sustainable Food Systems Park ones. Follow the link to the proposal from this column at richmondreview.com. If you don’t quite grasp the higher values that drove the community to save the Garden City Lands, that will help. The goals are within

reach, but the Garden City Lands would be just a sprawling construction site now if the people hadn’t acted, holding firm against all odds. The spirit of the Sustainable Food Systems Park is harmonious. For example, one goal looks forward to the lands as “a community meeting space to counteract the isolation caused by immigration, age and poverty.” It’s salving, and to me it’s inspiring. That park vision put our best foot forward. When we aim to do what’s right, it’s good for all of us. Jim Wright is president of the Garden City Conservation Society.

Staff Reporter After a rain-soaked week, Richmond can take heart in the forecast for Canada Day: 27 C under sunny skies with a good chance of salmon. The streets of Steveston will be alive with Canadian pride on Monday, July 1, when the community celebrates the nation’s 146th birthday at the Steveston Salmon Festival. Known as Canada’s biggest little birthday party, the 68th annual festival is expected to draw 70,000 to Steveston Village. And sunscreen and hats appear to be the order of the day, according to spokesperson Janice Froese. The attractions that make the festival famous are back: pancake breakfast, live entertainment, trade show, crafts, chil-

dren’s activities, carnival, salmon—and, of course, the parade. “The parade is always so much fun. It’s really neat to see all the community groups that come out and celebrate Canada Day,” said Froese. “Who doesn’t love a parade?” The fun begins bright and early at 6:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at Steveston Community Centre. The Children’s Bike Parade will provide the first spectacle, at 9:30 a.m. The main parade march-

es off at 10 a.m. from Garry Point Park, winding through the streets of Steveston and past the community centre to Railway Avenue. The famous salmon barbecue begins at 11 a.m. and continues until all the fresh wild sockeye salmon is gone. Over 2,300 plates were served last year. Cost is $15 per plate, cash only. Following the parade, the festival will be officially opened with the singing of O Canada. Headlining the entertainment on the

Main Stage is singer-songwriter Andrew Allen. Other highlights include the Japanese cultural show, food fair and a youth rock festival featuring local bands. And this year, Funtastic-Inflatables is bringing the fun back to the carnival and midway in Steveston Park. Festival-goers will also find something new on the grounds this year— the tram barn in Steveston Park and the Steveston Educational Garden. Both will be open to the public.

Loonie Town offers crazy value for dollar at Blundell Centre

Loonie Town

Iris from Loonie Town at Blundell Centre welcomes customers. When Loonie Town first opened its doors in 1996 at Blundell Centre, it was just

the second dollar store in Richmond. Today, competition is

fierce, but owner Guillermo Schweber said he employs many strategies to give his

store a leg-up. Schweber, a former veterinarian, tries to bring in Canadian-made and Richmond-made items whenever possible. He stands behind his products, and when customers point out something that’s defective, he discontinues selling it and offers a refund. He also accepts credit cards and debit cards, something you don’t see very often among his dollar-store competition. To keep his store looking fresh and interesting for

his many regular clients, he continuously brings in new products, and offers multiple price points. “We’re not big box boring, but at the same time, we have thousands of items that are around $1,” he said. Schweber also runs the Loonie Town at Ironwood mall, and said the fact that he’s not a big-box store allows him to quickly adapt to what his customers want. Loonie Town, at

140-8180 No. 2 Rd., is open seven days a week, from 9:30 a.m to 6:30 p.m., Mondays to Fridays, from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call 604-448-1989.

A place to play. A place to stay.

Herman Koch’s The Dinner elevates dysfunction to a whole new level

Book Club

Shelley Civkin

A

n acquaintance of mine suggested I read The Dinner by Herman Koch (a Dutch author), with the warning that it’s a darker and weirder book than what it seems at first.

And boy was he ever right! I’d classify it as a psychological thriller, since the story really focuses on the unstable and dysfunctional emotional states of the

characters. All the characters. In fact, I don’t think there’s one normal, well-adjusted character in the whole story! Pair that with drama and mystery and you get a winner of a book. Right from the get-go Paul, the narrator of the story, seems somewhat paranoid and conspiratorial, and refrains from giving out too much detail, which of course, just adds to the suspense. It starts out simply enough with two husbands and wives meeting up for dinner in a restaurant in Amsterdam. They make the usual small talk, but the reader gets the feeling that there’s more to their conversation than meets the eye. And is there ever! Dancing around the real conversation that needs to be had, brothers Serge and Paul Lohman and their wives Babette and Claire can’t quite make it past the superficial subjects. It becomes clear that these four people are much

more nefarious than they appear. Paul is a school teacher who is on an extended leave; Claire is his smarter wife; Serge is a candidate for prime minister; and Babette is his beautiful but not so innocent wife. And bubbling just below the surface are their dark secrets. Paul and Claire’s teenage son Michel seems troubled, as does Serge and Babette’s teenage son Rick. As for adopted son Beau, Serge and Babette have embraced him like he was their own. When the two teenage boys carry out a heinous act of viciousness, their parents’ lives take on a new dimension as they try to protect their sons from the worst. Laboring under the illusion that they are a happy family, Paul and Claire go to great lengths to keep up that façade. Author Herman Koch does a superb job of parcelling out the clues and hints just often enough to keep our interest

piqued. At the end, the reader is left to guess the exact nature of the affliction from which Paul suffers. There’s no question that the other characters are flawed in enormously hideous ways too, but Paul, the narrator, is the real mess. In a nutshell The Dinner elevates dysfunction to a whole new level, and introduces us to a cast of characters who are all sick and twisted in their own ways.

THINKING

Landed by Esra Ersen

A image from Esra Ersen’s video-based installation ‘Passengers,’ in which women from a country surrounded by water are brought to the sea for the first time.

International art has ‘Landed’ Turkish artist Esra Ersen brings her study of social behaviour to Richmond Art Gallery by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

T

hey’re arranged neatly on clothes hangers in Richmond Art Gallery—black-and-white school uniforms inscribed with text lifted from the wearers’ diaries.

A new take on fashion this is not. The clothes are part of a new exhibition from artist Esra Ersen, a native of Turkey known for her exploration of social behaviour. Landed opened this week and features two video-based installations,

including I am Turkish, I am Honest, I am Diligent…, a work the uniforms are contained in. Ersen, in Richmond this week from her current home in Berlin, told The Richmond Review she asked students in three classrooms around the world—Germany, Korea and Austria—to don Turkish school uniforms for one week. She captured their experiences in a video, which follows the children to school and on a field trip. Ersen then printed students’ diary notes on the uniforms—statements that reflect feelings of anxiety and confusion, but also the process of identification. “I always work with the social political context from the area, and work with the people from the area and produce together the project,” said Ersen about her work, which provides small glimpses about the context of the larger population. “These small topics can (say) lots

of things about this society,” she said. “If you see a story from a totally different place, then you start to think about your own experience. That can really open new doors to you that you normally don’t think about.” The Richmond Art Gallery exhibition also includes Ersen’s video installation Passengers. The twochannel video examines migration within Turkey and explores the tension between communities and their socio-political environments. In one film, Ersen takes a group of female migrants to Bosphorus— also known as the Istanbul Strait— unbelievably marking their first trip to the sea. In another, she paints a picture of migrant families in Istanbul whose impoverished communities conflict with promises offered up in an election campaign. This is Ersen’s first solo exhibition in Canada.

Expenses drop, wages go up at city hall Bureaucrats were tighter with taxpayers’ pursestrings last year, recording 40 per cent fewer expenses than the previous year, according to financial statements received by city council Monday. In all, 1,922 employees, led by chief administra-

tive officer George Duncan, submitted receipts that totalled $518,789. Salaries, however, did rise in 2012. Remuneration for staff totalled $104.2 million, and 478 employees earned over $75,000, according to the annual public financial report. Duncan himself

earned the most, pulling in a salary of $284,701. Recording the greatest amount of expenses was Mike Redpath, senior manager of parks, who billed taxpayers for $12,139. Other big spenders: $8,665 for Phyllis Carlyle, general manager of law and community safety; $7,312 for Cecilia Achi-

Walking tours expose Steveston’s dark past Get ready to be captivated by Steveston’s colourful past at one of the Steveston Museum and Visitor Centre’s summer walking tours. Every Thursday and Saturday beginning July 4 through to Sept. 28, a choice of two, one-hour walking tours will enlighten visitors on a dark side they likely never knew existed. On Thursdays and Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., “Murder, Mayhem and Morality in Old Steveston” will delve into the seedy underbelly of Steveston’s dark past. During the tour, visitors will discover grisly unsolved murders, learn about ladies of dubious virtue, and uncover the vices of drinking and gambling that once gave Steveston a rough and terrible reputation.

Also on Thursdays and Saturdays at 12:30 p.m., visitors can take in the “Boardwalks, Bar Rooms and Boats” tour. This tour gives glimpses of Steveston’s history from its glory days to its darkest hours. New to the tour this year, visitors will also explore Steveston’s latest burgeoning industry as a backdrop for movies and TV shows such as the Twilight saga and Once Upon a Time. Tours cost $5 per person and leave from the park surrounding Steveston Museum at 3811 Moncton St. Each tour runs for approximately one hour. Book your tour by calling the Tourism Richmond Visitor Centre at 604-271-8280 or in person at the Visitor Centre in the Steveston Museum.

food Where to find local produce

Miles Smart in the fields at North Richmond’s Cherry Lane Farm, a local agriculture institution since the early ‘50s.

Farm food flourishing in Richmond Blueberry season nears, and ‘the best’ potatoes on the planet nearly ready by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

D

ays are long, temperatures are warm and the bounty from local crops is emerging from farm fields.

From blueberries and cherries to lettuce and new potatoes, local fruits and vegetables are now surfacing at farm stands and produce markets around Richmond. At J.S. Nature Farm, fancy lettuces, new potatoes and peas—all grown on Richmond soil—are available. Some strawberries were still available this week, but not for long due to damage caused by recent rain. “We always need a little rain for something, but we always seem to get too much,” said owner Susan Buerger. German yellow potatoes the longtime Richmond farm is famous for should be ready midJuly. It’s a variety Buerger favours because, well,

“they’re the best.” “It’s a very good tasting potato and it never falls apart on you. There is a difference in the taste,” she said. “Just cook them up. You don’t even need butter, but with a little bit of butter and garlic, you’ve got a meal.” Nearly 39 per cent of Richmond is protected in the Agricultural Land Reserve, and its crops are diverse. Cranberries are king, and fields of blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are also aplenty. Strawberry season is winding down for most growers, while others are now seeing blueberries ripen. This week Canwest Farms posted a photo on Twitter of its first picked blueberry of the 2013 season. Rain delayed pickers this week, but Canwest’s Humraj Kallu said Thursday he hopes fresh blueberries will be available at his farm’s Farmers Market—at Blundell and Sidaway roads—this weekend, ahead of “real production” next week. Other fruits and vegetables—from asparagus to zucchini—are also found in many fields. At Cherry Lane Farm, 9571 Beckwith Rd., Miles Smart is busy tending to a wide variety of produce, including the farm’s namesake—cherries—whose short season is well underway. As of this week, kale, chard, beets, red

lettuce and early potatoes were in abundance for his customers, who include chefs of local restaurants. Garlic, he said, will be ready in two weeks. Sales will begin this long weekend at G.S. Farms, 11400 No. 4 Rd. Owner George Sidhu said this

season’s crops seem to be fairing slightly better than last year, when a cold spring delayed the growing season. He’ll have blueberries, raspberries, black currents and other Richmond-grown fruit ready. A late variety of straw-

berries are also beginning to take shape. But on Wednesday, Sidhu couldn’t guarantee they’d match the primary colour of the Canadian flag by July 1. “They’re still very green with lots of flowers. Nothing red yet.”

Feed-U-Cate was inspired by learning of the surprisingly high number of students who go to school hungry, a problem masked in Richmond by a population generally perceived as affluent while in fact there are many residents who are not. After such basic expenses as accommodation they are left with little money for food. While Kishi says this is a community issue at large, educators realize children struggle to learn on an empty stomach. It’s a situation the school district can’t ignore, he stresses. “Part of being socially responsible is helping each other, and it’s amazing how much awareness and money we’ve been able to raise in a short period for other projects,” he says. So far, $2,300 has been raised for the Feed-U-Cate initiative, with Kishi suggesting $15,000 to $20,000 annually would probably cover the cost of operating a district-wide breakfast/lunch program. Currently, about 15 Richmond schools have some sort of breakfast or lunch program. “We don’t want to recognize these kids because of the stigma, we just want to help them and hopefully they’re not afraid to accept the help,” says Kishi. “With that in mind, the programs are open not to just the kids that are hungry but to all the students. That way it becomes a social thing where everybody is together and nobody really thinks about the kids coming to school hungry. It’s a way to (address the issue) that is pretty discreet.” A possible partner to Feed-U-Cate could come from the business community, such as through the Richmond Caring Companies program—a joint initiative of Volunteer Richmond Information Services, Richmond Chamber of Commerce and Ashton Service Group. Ultimately, Kishi is hoping students themselves will oversee Feed-U-Cate, helping to co-ordinate fundraising efforts and facilitating food orders and staffing.

Specials valid while stock lasts and are subject to change.

It’s a pivotal time in the history of The Sharing Farm, a volunteer-driven charitable organization which provides weekly supplies of locally-grown fresh fruits and vegetables to hundreds of local needy families. It’s operations centre now sits empty courtesy a pest and mould infestation—which permanently shelved a low-cost renovation plan—and the future is clouded in uncertainty as staff try to make do with what they have, and hope to raise enough funding for a replacement. Without a new building—which could cost upwards of $200,000 to complete—where harvested fruits and vegetables are washed and stored, food will go to waste and local families will simply have to do without. Tasked with the challenge of determining what to do next is the part-time staff at the Sharing Farm, along with the seven members of its board of directors, including vice-president John Frazer, who was elected in March. Over the past decade, The Sharing Farm has donated upwards of 200,000 pounds of produce to the Richmond Food Bank and local community meals, which helps supply hundreds of families with some of their weekly groceries and up to 1,000 individuals with daily community meals. “The garage served as the operation centre for the farm. Everything we’re doing is a makeshift effort to replace the use of it.” At the very least, the lack of a central processing facility will seriously reduce the current annual production of about 30,000 pounds of produce. “That will directly impact hungry families in Richmond,” Frazer said. Margaret Hewlett, executive director of the Richmond Food Bank, said it’s not just hunger that the food bank addresses on a daily basis. It’s nutrition too, he said. See Page 23

food

Richmond is a United Nations of restaurants With more than 800 restaurants, Richmond is becoming a food destination. That point was underlined for 365 days when food blogger Lindsay Anderson spent an entire year blogging for Tourism Richmond while eating at one local restaurant per day for an entire year, an effort to boost Richmond’s profile on the national and international scene. Anderson’s blog is at www.365daysofdining.com. Richmond has more than 500 Asian restaurants and more opening every day. Quality is high and fare ranges from the traditional to the modern. In most western cities, there’s typically one type of Chinese restaurant, but in Richmond there are restaurants specific to the four different corners of China and other Asian countries. Northern food became known as Beijing dishes and uses wheat flour

to make dumplings, stuffed breads, noodles, and steamed buns. The Southern food, known as Cantonese, is vital to Chinese food with lots of rice, dainty light food, and a love of condiments such as Hoisin sauce and plum sauce. Dim sum originated in Southern China and means “little dishes.” These tasty dishes generally come in bamboo steamers. Western food is known as Sichuan (Szechuan), the place for flavour and home of hot and spicy Kung Pao. Eastern food or Shanghai dishes uses lots of seafood in a variety of sweet, salty, sour, and fragrant. Taiwanese food requires lots of preparation. Marinated first, it is precooked, stir-fried and then deepfried, using spice to give different flavours in one dish. Alexandra Road, known unofficially as “Food Street,” serves up more than 50 restaurants within a two-block radius. Some of Richmond’s earliest settlers

were Japanese. There are many sushi restaurants in Richmond ranging from the all you can eat variety to more traditional fare. Vietnamese restaurants are also both plentiful and popular, with noodle soup (pho) being the signature dish. It’s a steaming bowl of rice noodles served with meat (often thinly cut raw beef, which cooks in the soup) and a plate of condiments such as bean sprouts, Thai basil and lime to flavour the soup. Speaking of Thai basil, the cuisine of that country is increasingly popular among diners. And there’s Indian and Korean eateries as well. Mediterranean food, whether it’s Greek or Italian, is never in short supply either. Steveston is another popular restaurant destination. In the fishing village you can find anything from sandwich shops to seafood restaurants to fine dining. But it’s fish and chips that Steveston has the most of, ranging from eat-in locations to takeout spots.

Sharing Farm helps food bank From Page 22 “We’re trying to promote the most nutritious food choices,” Hewlett said. “Those who rely on the food bank, their choices rely on the choices of the donor.” Asked about The Sharing Farm, Hewlett said that group is “very, very important to us.” During an informal survey among those who use the food bank, the most requested food is the fresh fruits and vegetables. “It’s a constant struggle to keep that up,” she said. And with The Sharing Farm’s donations likely to decline without an operations centre, Hewlett said she “has no doubt that will impact the health” of the people who rely on the food bank. “Those donations are important to us, and they’re important to the health of the people coming to us.” As well, the existence of The Sharing Farm motivates local businesses, groups and organizations to do similar work, growing vegetables for a charitable cause. Frazer said that as his group seeks out local businesses willing to assist in sponsoring the construction of the new operations centre, ultimately taxpayers will have to pay, one way or another. While adults may be able to get by without nutritious foods, the lack of access to fresh fruits and vegetables will have a negative impact on a child’s development. And that child could grow up to be an unhealthy adult, who will wind up seeking out the services of the costly healthcare system.

Great Food! Cold Beer! Good Cheer!

Tugboat Annie’s offers a mix of great food, atmosphere & staff Tugboat Annie’s chef James Cunningham knows his way around a kitchen, serving up what he describes as the “best soup in town”, made fresh daily from scratch. Located at the foot of Graybar Road in East Richmond, Tugboat Annie’s boasts a beautiful patio with unobstructed views of the Shelter Island Marina and the Fraser River, excellent food that’s in tune with what’s happening in the farm fields and gardens, and a welcoming, friendly staff. Whether customers are eager to watch some sports, reconnect with friends while trying a great selection of local and West Coast craft beers, or simply winding down the week, Tugboat Annie’s offers a casual, relaxed pub atmosphere with a little bit of everything.

To say the menu is dotted with standard pub fare would be a disservice. Chef Cunningham pours his 20+ years of cooking experience into everything he serves his customers. Take the best-selling jalapeno chicken corn chowder, or the curry-based mulligatawny soup, or the seafood chowder. All satisfy the heart and soul, and at reasonable prices too. Tugboat Annie’s is located at 6911 Graybar Road. It’s open from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Monday to Wednesday & Saturday, from 11 a.m. - midnight, Thursday & Friday and from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Summer Slam tipping off in West Richmond by Don Fennell Sports Editor Reflecting the enormous popularity of the roundball game in Richmond is the fact there’s never a down period. Basketball’s peak season might be high school play from December through March, but it’s closely rivaled by both participation and interest by the summer season. The annual Dolphin Park Classic, a four-on-four men’s and women’s tournament (July 26 to 28 at Thompson Community Centre) which regularly attracts some of the best in local and international college players, is always a must-attend event. But the West Richmond Summer Slam regularly attracts 400 high school-aged players. Returning for a 15th season at

the West Richmond Community Centre, Summer Slam tipped off with a pair of free skills sessions Thursday for students in grades 6 through 9. Under the guidance of recreation leader Senen de Leon, Summer Slam is a communitybased recreational basketball league operating at the centre. There are divisions for children of all ages in grades 4 through 12.

“There is a strong focus on the recreational aspect and fun,” explains de Leon. “We’re working closely with the Richmond Youth Basketball League to help build fundamentals at the grassroots level.” Basketball camps and small group skills sessions are also being planned, to be taught by members of the Langara men’s basketball team which finished first in the PacWest conference and third in the nation at the college level in 2012-13. The head coach will be Richmond’s own Elliot Mason, who has grown up with the program and welcomes the opportunity to give back. de Leon, who is coordinating Summer Slam with Kady Huhn and Gabriel Lee, says there are also plans to host a midsummer outdoor tournament.

Training with other elite athletes will challenge Connaught skaters by Don Fennell Sports Editor

SUMMER RUNWAY OPERATIONS AT YVR NORTH RUNWAY DEPARTURES Summer 2013, beginning June 1 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Limited north runway departures will occur during the summer months to help reduce delays and congestion during the peak travel period. North runway departures will primarily occur between 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

SOUTH RUNWAY MAINTENANCE July 7 – August 30, 2013 9:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m.

The north runway will be used for departures and arrivals nightly while Vancouver Airport Authority conducts its annual runway maintenance and repairs on the south runway.

Several skaters from around the world have decided to make Richmond their training home this summer. “We have skaters from New Zealand, Hong Kong and Estonia as well as from New Brunswick, Saskatchewan and Ontario training with us this summer,” says Keegan Murphy, director of skating programs for the Connaught Skating Club. See Page 27

Connaught skaters like Mitchell Gordon (left) will benefit from training with other elite skaters, says programs director Keegan Murphy.

Pitching in makes everyone better All for one approach leads to success for Richmond Girls Softball by Don Fennell Sports Editor In the famous French novel Les Trois Mousquetaires (The Three Musketeers) by Alexandre Dumas, the prevailing theme is all for one,

one for all. It’s a philosophy the Richmond Girls Softball Association has also adopted. With everyone pitching in, explains president Steve Smith, everyone shares in the success. And by the

time the 2013 season concludes in August, there could be plenty to go around. From the house divisions to rep and finally senior, Richmond is well-represented in the upcoming provincial championships. Equally satisfying is that at least one team from each age group

has qualified. “We’re hoping to bring home some medals, but success is absolutely not predicated on winning,” says Smith. “It’s at the park, where you see how many days we’re busy, or the time and effort that’s put in by the athletes, coaches and parents, that’s so gratifying.” Smith is particularly proud of the commitment shown by young coaches such as Brianna Adams and Jessica Mack, and longtime mentors like Jack Hopwood and JR Robinson. He says their efforts are why young girls are having such a positive experience playing softball in Richmond. Richmond Girls Softball is also committed to providing opportunities for its players and coaches to continually improve. “We’ve been able to fill at least a session of national coaching certification clinics, and it’s by attending these that you get people to move up,” suggests rep director Al Groff. “We’ve also been able to call on some previous coaches like Donna Goodwin to get a brush-up on things like sliding or defence.” As an association, Richmond has also made a conscious decision to try to be allencompassing by pro-

viding opportunities for players of all skill levels—both at house and rep. “The idea is to ensure the experience is fun, otherwise we’re not going to get the players to stay involved,” says Groff. “Over the last couple of years we’ve been able to grow our junior and senior programs and we want to continue to expand those divisions.”

Locals to skate in Anaheim and Burnaby From Page 24

Murphy believes having a range of out-of-town skaters will greatly benefit athletes from the host club. “ C o n n a u g h t ’s training program offers access to proper training specialists on and off the ice, five days a week,” he says. “And the training regimen will allow them to develop their skills to be the best in B.C., Canada or the country they compete in. Many of these athletes will progress onto international competition later this season. Therefore, it is an advantage for them to be able to train in an environment where they are inspired by each other and push each

other to higher levels.” Training will continue throughout the summer, from sunrise to 5 p.m. weekdays through Aug. 16 at the Richmond Ice Centre. Special events will be held at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Connaught skaters will also be participating in a pair of competitions— Glacier Falls Summer Classic in Anaheim, Calif. July 31 to Aug. 4 and the BC SummerSkate in Burnaby Aug. 15. “We only take our most competitive skaters to the Glacier Falls competition, while all 65 of our competitors will compete at BC SummerSkate,” explains Murphy.

Secret Ridge brings paired homes to Coquitlam

A different type of attached home Mission Group Properties is bringing a different type of home to Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain with Secret Ridge, which offers unique “paired homes.” A paired home is attached like a townhome, but is much larger and has the feel of a single-family residence. The paired homes at Secret Ridge are 35 feet wide, which is more than double the usual size of a townhome. “We gave careful consideration in the design of the homes’ layouts, with the homeowner in mind,” says Mission Group President Randall Shier. “These large duplex-style homes look, feel and act more like a single-family home, but at a very attractive price point.”

The homes have been particularly attractive to downsizers, in part because of the special features. One of those is the master-on-main layout that allows you the flexibility and convenience in the long term. One of the floorplans actually features two master suites, for those who prefer to have their own sleeping quarters or a guest space. “Homes offering wider layouts, larger sizes and most importantly, a master bedroom on the main floor is not commonly offered in Coquitlam,” says Coquitlam councillor Mae Reid. For more information about Secret Ridge, visit www.secretridge.ca or call 604-725-8126.

caretaker George Wright is sure to be part of why your every experience at your cottage getaway will be wonderful. Wright will be available to help you plant a flower garden, grow vegetables, teach you about woodworking or just sit around and have a chat. He has been one of the inspirational forces behind The Cottages at Seabright Farm, and it’s obvious to even the most casual observer how passionate he is about everything he gets involved with. “You can walk out your door and grab vegetables, herbs and fruit for dinner,” Wright says. “There’s nothing like this anywhere.” Because of both the elevation and south slope of the entire property, you’ll find a gorgeous view no matter where you purchase. The two-or-morebedroom cottages will include stone fireplaces, high ceilings, sunny window seats, hardwood flooring, relaxing

decks and covered porches. Srigley says that a family “can start with a cozy cottage and then over time, add studios or guest suites attached by breezeways, garages with lofts and potting sheds.” A circa-1895 cottage has been lovingly preserved and, along with the community barn and gardens and a swimming pool, will become Seabright Farm’s gathering place, plus a venue to hold art shows for local artists, cooking demonstrations, musical performances, and of course, wine tastings! Cottages on large ocean-view lots start at $399,000. Only 15 lots out of a total of 57 are being released this summer. For more information, visit www.seabrightfarmcottages.com or call 1-888-732-6915. A preview weekend will take place on June 29 to July 1, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and interested buyers are encouraged to pre-register online and call or email for an appointment time.

‘Point Roberts has character’

Oceanfront relaxation at The Cottages at Seabright Farm By Kerry Vital

“Look at that sunlight filtering through the trees,” says Wayne Knowles as he drives onto the property at The Cottages at Seabright Farm. “This is a once in a generation opportunity.” Knowles, the development partner for The Cottages at Seabright Farm, located in Point Roberts, is extremely excited about the project and what it means to the community. Point Roberts has long been a popular spot for Canadians, especially those from the Lower Mainland looking for a quick and easy getaway without having to deal with a long drive or a ferry. Just across the border from Tsawwassen, you’ll find a relaxing atmosphere with a charming feel, great weather and plenty of activities to keep you as busy as you want to be. “There’s so many things you can do,” says Knowles. “Or you can do nothing at all.” The Point Roberts Golf and Country Club is a full 18-hole course for when you’re in the mood to hit the links, or pay a visit to the Lighthouse Marine Park, where you can find plenty of opportunities to see orca whales, comb the beach or go clamming or crabbing. The 275-acre Lily Point Marine Reserve is just a moment down the road from The Cottages at Seabright Farm, with its sandy bluffs and tidal flats. Plus, the full-service Point Roberts Marina has over 900 slips and is just down the road. The unique restaurants and eclectic shops round out the experience. “Point Roberts has character,” Knowles says. “It’s totally authentic and small enough to be a true community.” The Cottages at Seabright Farm is located on 62 acres of direct southfacing waterfront, and the land is a rare and exceptional canvas. Vancouver award-winning visionary and design specialist Cal Srigley has been engaged to create a one-of-a-kind community. “Point Roberts has a unique landscape that shapes our designs,” Srigley states. “Ocean bluffs with long vistas, protected meadows and fields, and sun-dappled woodlands characterize the community and especially our site.” He notes that the sky, which is seemingly endless, lends character to the landscape. The cottages are based on Point Roberts’ historical summer cottages and simple farm buildings. “We also incorporated many

You can walk out your door and grab vegetables, herbs and fruit for dinner,” says onsite resident farmer and caretaker George Wright. elements to accommodate outdoor living such as porches, verandas and breezeways to link the buildings together and create outdoor rooms for casual living. We grouped houses together and created intimate enclosed yards around them, freeing up much of the landscape to give the appearance of farm clusters rather than sub-division lots,” Srigly says. “The overall effect is of a small rural settlement, with open land throughout and picturesque cottages that are charming, yet simple and authentic in their detail and materials.” The Cottages at Seabright Farm are designed for family fun, whether you want to go horseback riding on one of the trails, learn something at the community barn and gardens on the property, wander the beach looking for driftwood or play board games on your deck. On-site resident farmer and

SHELBY, Roberta Louise June 2, 1939 - June 18, 2013

CLASS 1 DRIVERS (VAN / LA / TOR / VAN) WE ARE HIRING!

A Great Janitorial Franchise Opportunity

“A loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend, “Robby” lived her life with kindness and grace. She is and forever will be missed for the sweetness and joy she brought to our lives.” Roberta Louise Shelby was born in Kelowna, BC, one of four children of Anne and Leo Graf. After several short periods alternating between residences in the Okanagan and Richmond, the Graf family settled permanently in Richmond in 1949. Shortly after her graduation, Robby met and married Fred Shelby and moved to Burnaby, where their sons Robert and Brian were born in 1958 and 1960 respectively. Beyond loving family, Robby cultivated an even larger circle of friends, meeting regularly for lunches, dinners, movies, and her favourite one-beer “pub nights” and “poker nights.” Early in her life she became an avid tap dancer, forming a relationship with her “dancing lady” cronies that lasted long after the dancing ended. Predeceased by her parents and sister Geraldine, Robby is survived by her sons Brian and Robert (Florita), her grandchildren Tatiana and Camilla, Fred, her former husband, who now resides in Mexico, brothers Patrick (Linda) and John (Cherry), brother-in-law Jules Dore, many aunts, nephews, nieces and cousins and a host of friends. A funeral service will be held at St. Joseph The Worker Church, 4451 Williams Road in Richmond at 11:00 a.m., Saturday June 29, 2013, with a reception to follow in the church hall. An informal prayer service will be held on Friday, June 28 at 7 p.m.

2012 city council expenses

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Mayor Malcolm Brodie’s salary climbed 7.8 per cent last year and city council’s expenses tripled, according to financial documents revealed Monday at city hall. Richmond’s five-term mayor collected $117,165 in 2012. That’s a 46 per cent increase over 2006, when council approved an initial salary hike and regular pay raises based on inflation and what politicians elsewhere are making. Brodie earned just $80,082 then. City councillors also got more money last year. Their salaries rose 5.2 per cent to $54,992—a 72-percent increase in seven years. Meanwhile, the Consumer Price Index—an indicator of changes in prices of goods and services—rose just 1.3 per cent in Metro Vancouver last year, and 2.3 per cent the previous year. “You’d be hard pressed to find people in Richmond who would say council is doing a 72 per cent better job than in 2006, or the mayor doing a 46 per cent better job,” said Jordan Bateman, B.C. director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. Every three years, the city compares Richmond council’s salaries with those of Burnaby, Surrey, Coquitlam, Delta and Abbotsford,

•Mayor Malcolm Brodie: $10,766 •Coun. Harold Steves: $10,049 •Coun. Bill McNulty: $8,871 •Coun. Chak Au: $6,498 •Coun. Linda McPhail: $6,479 •Coun. Ken Johnston: $3,629 •Coun. Derek Dang: $3,536 •Coun. Linda Barnes: $503 •Coun. Evelina HalseyBrandt: $246 according to Mayor Brodie. Richmond council members’ salaries are then raised to put them among the top 25 per cent paid civic politicians. But Bateman said such comparisons are of a false market. “It’s not like municipalities are competing for councillor talent. You don’t have the option to move over to Delta council if you can get a better gig.” Bateman suggested a panel of average citizens could better determine council’s wages, which are continually being pushed up by comparisons. “It’s almost irrelevant what other jurisdictions pay. The only time you ever hear it touted—what other jurisdictions pay—is when it’s higher than what your city pays and your councillor wants more money,” he said. Brodie said remuneration should be fair, and about the only way to determine that is to consider cost of living and the wages of other councils. See Page 3

Attack of the giant hogweed? One 10-metre long clump of dangerous weed towers more than two metres tall by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter On Tuesday, while Takuo Hashizume was out cycling the trail at Terra Nova Natural Area in West Richmond, he noticed what he described as “some suspicious plants.” He believes he stumbled upon several patches of highly toxic giant hogweed, based on a short seminar he took on poisonous plants a few years ago.

As the patches, including one that stretches 10 metres long, sit alongside a popular walking and cycling trail, he’s wondering why someone hasn't noticed this before given its likely been growing there for years. And he’s worried the general public might be at risk, particularly young children and those unaware of the dangers of the potentially blinding weed, located a stone’s throw from numerous backyards. “It’s very toxic and if you touch skin... you might get burned or if it contacts the eye, you might lose sight,” Hashizume said. There are at least four patches of the towering plants, most about 1.8 metres tall, but one more mature clump that’s more than three metres high. A group of women who happened to be walking along the trail when The

Richmond Review was being escorted to the sight, said they recognized the weed a long time ago based on earlier media coverage about giant hogweed. City spokesperson Ted Townsend said giant hogweed is an ongoing problem in the Lower Mainland, and the city has an action plan to deal with sightings. He urges residents to email photos of giant hogweed, along with their location, to invasiveplants@ richmond.ca or call the invasive plant hotline at 604-276-4316. There's also information on the city's website at richmond.ca. "The public shouldn't take this into their own hands, literally, because it is poisonous and can cause some problems if they handle it and get it on their bare skin," Townsend said. See Page 3
