Many of the people who rely on The Sharing Farm for the most nutritious part of their daily meals don’t even know of its existence. As Richmond Food Bank executive director Margaret Hewlett aptly put it, “when somebody’s in a crisis situation, that’s not a piece of information they’re looking for, or even take in.” But that lack of awareness— exacerbated by the language barriers on ethnically diverse Lulu Island—makes the daily supply of fresh fruits and vegetables grown by the hundreds of volunteers and a handful of part-time staff at Terra Nova Rural Park no less critical.

Martin van den Hemel photo Thursday’s demolition of this garage, which was the centre of operations for The Sharing Farm—which provides tens of thousands of pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to local needy families—served as the launch for a crowdfunding effort. For more on the fundraiser for the replacement, estimated to cost $170,000 to complete, visit tinyurl.com/ TheSharingFarm.

Community support for farm has been amazing From Page 1 Every year, the blood, sweat and tears of those who work the 4.5 acres of City of Richmond-supplied soil at The Sharing Farm, results in some 30,000 pounds of apples, strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, garlic, bok choy and gai lan, destined for the plates of some 1,000 people each week. This year, there were plans to renovate the multi-car garage that had served as the make-shift hub for the entire farming operation, where the perishable harvest was washed, sorted and kept cooled. But then a rodent problem, and the discovery of mould, derailed the project. On Thursday, the garage was razed, leaving the farm without a centre of operations for the foreseeable future. So added to the daunting task of running a farm on a barebones budget and extremely limited resources was yet another job: overseeing a monumental fundraising project. The goal: to build a new farm centre. The cost: $170,000. The timeframe: as soon as possible. “In reality, it would become our first real farm centre,” Frazer said of the new hub, the sketches of which are available at sharingfarm.ca. “For us, the amount of money is astronomical, more than our annual operating budget.” Further complicating matters is the fact that the hub is gone at the height of the season, when droves of community volunteers roll up their sleeves in hopes of making a real difference in the lives of needy local families. So The Sharing Farm is hoping to speed up the fundraising process through crowdfunding, hoping that the tens of thousands of local families recognize the importance of their work, and will contribute what they can afford, a few dollars at a time. The effort was launched Thursday on the indiegogo.com crowdfunding website. Details are available at tinyurl.com/ TheSharingFarm. Crowdfunding has helped with all sizes of projects, including when entrepreneurs sought to raise capital to fund the construction of a high-tech watch— the Pebble, which is currently on sale—

that links directly to smartphones. Same goes for the effort to pay the owner of a video purporting to show Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine. As well as the filming of a movie for fans of the TV teenage-detective show Veronica Mars. Frazer said this fundraiser will help countless locals for decades to come. “This is not going to be a temporary structure,” she said. It will house facilities to clean and store the harvest, as well as park crucial farming equipment. Thus far, the community’s support for The Sharing Farm has been amazing. The City of Richmond has supplied the land in West Richmond, as well as the Gilbert Road Community Gardens, for growing food, as well as the water necessary for irrigation and a variety of facilities at no cost. City spokesperson Kim Decker said the project is being reviewed for possible inclusion in the city’s capital campaign. But the need is now for a new facility, and Frazer is hoping local residents, as well as the corporate community, will recognize the urgency for the unique facility. The lack of a garage will impact the efficiency of the farm’s operations, and will eventually reduce its output, which will translate into less food for those who can least afford to go without. Mack Foster, owner of Mack Foster Building Materials Ltd. doing business as RONA (at Gilbert Road and Elmbridge), said his Richmond store will be donating $15,000 to the building effort after being impressed by what he saw during a tour of the site a couple of weeks ago. “I think it’s a really good cause. Just looking at the way they do things, there’s not a lot of big payroll going to administration and they’re putting food into people’s kitchens that can’t afford it,” he said. Vancity has also stepped forward to support The Sharing Farm, providing a $15,000 Envirofund grant.

A sister act for 35 years Teens urged by father to open Presto Print in 1978 by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Much has changed in Richmond since Heather Kaplan and her sister Laurel Wright ventured into the world of business as teenagers, at the urging of their father back in 1978. At that time, the Richmond High students were being taught to run an AB Dick onecolour printing press in their graphics communication class at school under the guidance of teacher Ron Zadorozny. And their dad, Allan Wright, had learned from a friend of a new printing process that eliminated the need for making a metal plate and was much faster. “It all kind of fell into place,” Kaplan said from Presto Print’s offices at 13988 Cambie Rd. Their dad had the insight to invest in the equipment for the business, which first opened on Bridgeport Road at No. 5 Road, and has provided a great career for the sisters and helped them forge long-lasting relationships with the business community.

“He decided to invest in our future that way,” Kaplan said. While Richmond has grown into a fullfledged city, and technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, one thing has remained the same in the past three-plus decades: if you keep your customers happy, they’ll continue to return and spread the positive word too. This month, Presto is celebrating its 35th anniversary of catering to mostly small and medium sized businesses, offering business cards, letterhead, envelopes, tickets, cheques, and photocopies among other things. Over all those years, they’ve never had to hire a salesperson, relying almost exclusively on drawing in customers by hanging a shingle on the sidewalk, and word-of-mouth. Presto survived despite naysayers proclaiming doom-and-gloom about the printing industry with the advent of home printers and other technological advances. Laurel Wright said she and her sister take pride in the quality of the products they create, and being able to work with customers who know very little about what they want, but who walk away extremely happy. It’s been their secret to success, one copy at a time

MLAs spar over planned vote on TransLink taxes by Jeff Nagel Black Press A promised referendum on new TransLink taxes or tolls was the topic of debate among MLAs in the B.C. Legislature Monday. It came as a private member’s motion was tabled to reinforce the BC Liberals’ election campaign promise to put any new TransLink revenue sources to a vote at the same time as the November 2014 municipal election. Opposition New Democrats continue to oppose the idea, saying it threatens to keep Metro Vancouver transit stuck in neutral for years to come while the region keeps growing and congestion worsens. “It’s a referendum that assures us that nothing much gets done till 2015, at least,” said NDP MLA Shane Simpson (Vancouver-Hastings).

He said the Liberals have failed to solve TransLink’s financial bind nearly three years after a September 2010 agreement with Metro Vancouver mayors to hammer out new funding sources. Simpson said the paralysis at TransLink extends back to 2007, when then-Transportation Minister Kevin Falcon “had a snit” over the elected board’s deliberations about building the Canada Line and replaced them with appointees. But New Democrats weren’t the only ones critical of the government’s record. Newly elected Liberal MLA Marvin Hunt (Surrey-Panorama), who sat on the old TransLink board as a Surrey city councillor, told the Legislature past premiers Glen Clark and Gordon Campbell both share blame for TransLink’s failure to secure needed funding over the years. Clark’s NDP got cold feet on implementing a $75 per year vehicle levy for TransLink in 2001, Hunt noted, and then the Campbell Liberals likewise cancelled a new parking stall tax after $5 million had already been spent preparing property assessments. Hunt said both premiers argued they were listening to the public while TransLink wasn’t. A referendum is the only way to end the perpetual conflict between provincial and regional interests, he added. “I believe the taxpayers are the only ones that can actually settle this so that we can get on with building transit and transportation in the Lower Mainland.” TransLink officials estimate $23 billion is needed over 30 years to both maintain the existing system and add new rapid transit lines. Metro mayors have suggested funding options including a vehicle levy, road pricing and a regional sales tax. George Heyman, the NDP’s new critic for TransLink, said the province should cancel the referendum and instead hand authority back to locally elected mayors and councillors.“To let the future of the transportation system in the region hang on a vote in a referendum, I think is dangerous,” Heyman said in an interview. He said the Liberals never held a referendum on Port Mann Bridge tolls or BC Hydro projects, and aren’t likely to do so on the promised replacement of the George Massey Tunnel either. Heyman noted TransLink faces significant cuts in service hours between 2013 and 2015 because expected new funding sources will not have arrived in time. TransLink also risks losing $100 million a year in federal matching funds because it won’t be able to stump up its share, he said. Transportation Minister Todd Stone, who wasn’t present for the debate, has yet to give a clear indication of what the referendum question might look like. He’s pledged to consult closely with Metro mayors.

Leasehold condo owners get big repair bill Bristol Court condos on Ryan Road hit with $2.7 million in repairs by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter More headaches for local leasehold condo owners, this time in the South Arm neighbourhood where dozens of residents were recently informed they live in a building that needs sizable repairs. Leasehold real estate properties can be purchased like regular properties, but they revert back to the landlord after a specified period of time, with leases running up to 99 years. While buyers own the lease and enjoy the property at often belowmarket prices compared to similarsized strata condos, they also have legal obligations to maintain the building and return it at the end of the lease in the same condition as when they purchased it. Footing the bill at Bristol Court, 8020, 8040, 8060 and 8080 Ryan Rd., will be the leasehold purchasers themselves, who will be doling out tens of thousands of dollars each over the next two years, according to a notice by Westsea Construction that was obtained by The Richmond Review. While Westsea Construction, the company that owns the four buildings, declined to comment for this

story, their notices gave a detailed picture of what was happening. “Beginning on June 24, 2013, Bristol Court will undergo remedial work, which includes demolition and replacement of the cladding, windows, sliding doors, guardrails and associated work...Please be advised that both interior inspections and asbestos abatement will require access into your unit,” one notice states. “The total costs of the project are estimated to be $2,729,338.67 (including taxes). Your portion according to your unit entitlement is shown below; each individual leaseholder’s portion has been divided into 12 equal payments. Payments are due on the first of each month starting August 1, 2013 and ending on July 1, 2014.” And for those who opt not to pay? “Interest at 6 % will be charged on all overdue balances.” For one homeowner, the bill is $76,520.68, though it’s unclear if this is for one home, multiple units, or the result of a typo. Most residents are paying an additional $1,400 to $2,300 per month for a year. If this story sounds familiar, you might recall the residents of Sussex Square, another multi-building leasehold condo complex near Granville and Railway belonging to Westsea Construction, where owners faced similarly hefty repair bills, averaging $47,000 per unit. Many residents at Sussex Square

Pharmasave Steveston Village Richmond’s Natural Pharmacy

banded together to hire a lawyer, and take Westsea to court. But the B.C. Supreme Court ultimately ruled against the homeowners, who had failed to prove their claim that Westsea was negligent in maintaining the building and alleging Westsea’s actions contributed to the damage. Five condos at Bristol Court are currently for sale, but there’s no mention in the descriptions of the assessment in any of them on realtylink.org. Local realtor Peter Wen, who is listing a 693-square-foot one bedroom, one bathroom apartment at Bristol Court for $116,000, said there’s a requirement by law to disclose to potential buyers about the assessment the owners face. He declined to disclose his client’s share of the bill. Another two-bed, one bath 966 square foot condo is listed for $155,000, and billed as “total renovated...owner spent $40,000.” But it also says: Roof repair 2011, balcony repair 2010. Another description goes as far as to say: “Great opportunities for first time buyers and investors.” At Bristol Court, a meeting to inform the residents about the multimillion dollar repair bill was held in the parking lot outside one of the buildings on June 26. “Please bring your umbrella if it is raining,” the notice said. For most residents, it must have felt like it was pouring.

Poisonous gases roll through dense neighbourhoods by Jeff Nagel Black Press Authorities are playing down concern over potential for a deadly rail disaster in the Lower Mainland after a runaway train laden with crude oil destroyed much of the Quebec town of Lac Megantic. Shipping oil by rail has been on the upswing as pressure grows to get landlocked Alberta oil out to global markets. Train loads of crude oil aren’t yet rolling through Metro Vancouver for export, but there’s growing speculation that could come, particularly if proposed new pipelines are rejected. (Small amounts of crude have come by truck or train to Chevron’s Burnaby refinery at times when it was unable to get enough supply from the over-subscribed Trans Mountain pipeline.) But poisonous or explosive gases do roll on rail through heavily developed Metro neighbourhoods and those are the train cars that are of greatest concern to emergency responders if a train derails. Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis said one risky substance is propane, which is explosive and heavier than air, so it

Make Your Home Safe for Independent Living Are you a low-income senior or a person with a disability who wants to live safely and independently in the comfort of your home? Do you have difficulty performing day-to-day activities? Does your home need to be adapted to meet your changing needs? If so, you may be eligible for financial assistance under the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program. Find out today if you are eligible and if you meet all of the requirements as a low-income homeowner or as a landlord applying on behalf of an eligible tenant.

doesn’t readily dissipate. Other chemicals that move on rail in this region include chlorine, hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide, which spilled from CN Rail cars into the Cheakamus River in 2005, killing half a million fish. Rail disasters are a “low frequency, high risk” threat that emergency responders in the region prepare for, he said. “We haven’t taken it lightly,” Garis said. But he emphasized the rail industry’s safety record moving dangerous goods has steadily improved since a 1979 chlorine leak in Mississauga, Ontario forced the evacuation of 218,000 people. That incident triggered major regulatory reforms, including beefed-up tanker cars for hazardous goods. “The rail cars that carry commodities that pose risks are designed to roll over, they’re designed to crash into each other end-on-end, so even if they do derail, they’re designed to withstand the consequences of that,” Garis said. “The track record in recent years is extremely positive.” Garis also noted the volumes of such chemicals moving here are relatively small. Unlike derailments in rugged slideprone parts of B.C., Garis noted the Lower Mainland is mostly flat and trains move slowly so risks of an accident are reduced.

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities

Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for

H O U S I N G M AT T E R S

North Vancouver energy consultant John Hunter said Lac Megantic underscores the fact that pipelines are safer than rail transport of oil. He said more should be done to protect area residents from a chemical or hydrocarbon spill from a train along CN line on the North Shore, in close proximity to residents. Hunter suggests a siren to warn residents to take emergency action. “I think it’s highly unlikely we’ll ever have one, but I think we should have a notification system in case something goes wrong.” Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said the Quebec disaster is a “wake-up call” on rail safety and for the federal government to ensure there’s adequate regulation and enforcement. But she noted dangerous chemicals like propane and chlorine may be a greater threat when carried in heavy trucks on the roads with other traffic. “You have to look at the risks,” she said of hauling by rail. “It’s either that or put it on a truck.” Jackson recently came back from a fact-finding trip to Norway on that country’s approach to moving oil. While there are no plans yet in southern B.C. for an oil-on-rail export terminal, Jackson said she wants to be “well-versed” on that and related port issues. “We are a major port here in Deltaport, and from eveything I can see, it is going to continue to grow.”

easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. Since the program began, more than 300 households completed renovations with HAFI financial assistance, making it possible for seniors and people with disabilities to continue to live in the safety and comfort of their home.

Carbon credit costs add up The Vancouver Coastal and Fraser health authorities spent more than $1 million each on carbon offsets last year. A provincial government report detailing the mandated purchases shows UBC spent the most on offsets – $1.7 million – while school districts spent a combined $4.5 million. Government bodies must buy carbon offsets through B.C.’s Pacific Carbon Trust to make up for their own greenhouse gas emissions as part of the province’s policy of carbon neutrality launched by former premier Gordon Campbell. Offsets bought in 2012 totalled $18.8 million, with health authorities making up the single largest contributing sector at $5.7 million. Critics have called the program a waste of scarce public sector money as schools and hospitals can’t eliminate their own emissions to avoid the charges. An audit of the Pacific Carbon Trust also found some of the made-inB.C. offset projects that received funds did not credibly reduce emissions. Premier Christy Clark has directed new Environment Minister Mary Polak to reform the offset system.

Water plant averted boil warning A heavy rainstorm last October would likely have triggered a boilwater advisory affecting many Metro Vancouverites had the region not constructed its massive water-filtration plant on the North Shore. A Metro water quality report for 2012 said the storm last fall stirred up sediment in the Seymour watershed, but it was filtered out by the new $817-million Seymour-Capilano Treatment Plant. Metro utilities committee chair Darrell Mussatto said in previous years it would likely have caused a boil water advisory to a million Metro residents, as happened once before in 2006. The new treatment plant still isn’t yet filtering water from the Capilano reservoir, because of lengthy delays completing connecting water tunnels.

EDITORIAL: The Sharing Farm needs a new heart F

eeding the hungry is one thing. But nourishing them with healthy foods like fresh fruits and vegetables is becoming an increasing priority at the Richmond Food Bank.

Those efforts will be seriously hampered for the coming weeks and months, as The Sharing Farm in West Richmond limps along without a much-needed operations centre. On Thursday, the previous make-shift hub, a rodent infested and mould tarnished garage, was torn down. What’s needed now is a replacement, which could cost as much as $170,000. Like a phoenix rising from the

ashes, the half-dozen part-time farm staff are hoping the death of the old facility simply marks the birth of a new one. But that won’t happen without the entire community rallying together. There’s an urgent need for funding for the new operations centre. With each passing day, the farm’s operations become less efficient, and the annual production of some 30,000 pounds worth of fruits and vegetables will slowly diminish. And with this being the height of the growing season, the timing for the loss of the hub couldn’t be much worse. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. The Sharing Farm is located in

one of the most generous communities in the Lower Mainland. One with a reputation for selflessness. One that has repeatedly stepped forward to assist when help was needed most. And with local infants, children, young families and seniors likely to be hardest hit by reduced access to nutritious foods, the cause couldn’t be more worthwhile. The City of Richmond has done its part, supplying the 4.5 acres of land, as well as free water for irrigation, and office space, as well as the money for the demolition of the garage. Organizers are hoping that crowdfunding will solve the problem. Locals can visit the indiegogo fundraising website, at tinyurl.

com/TheSharingFarm, and donate as little as $25 or as much as $10,000 to the effort. The initial goal is to raise $40,000, which will be enough to buy the kit for the new facility. Mack Foster, owner of the RONA on Gilbert Road and Elmbridge Way, has already stepped forward from the corporate community to commit $15,000 to the build. Vancity has done the same, committing another $15,000 from its Envirogroup fund. At this rate, with other generous corporate donations, the goal of $170,000 is certainly achievable.

RV park would do more for tourism Editor: Richmond is planning to spend more than $6 million on an unproven Olympic Experience concept to help oval attendance, when it could increase local tourism with a proven desirable short-term recreational vehicle park for only a tiny fraction of the cost. In September 2009 for the BC Senior Games in Richmond, I coordinated a RV park on the land east of the Richmond Olympic Oval, and another RV park at the South Arm Pool and Tennis parking lots. Both lots were successful with 100 RVs staying during the games. It was profitable. A much more modest service was provided the following February for the 2010 Winter

Olympics. Despite it being winter here and no marketing being done but an internet ad a month in advance, the temporary RV park attracted people from as far as Whitehorse, Colorado, and Los Angeles. It was profitable. Once something is on the Internet it is there forever, so I still get emails and calls about RV sites in Richmond! People wishing to stay while their child undergoes surgery, or park while going on guided fishing or hunting trips, or in most cases wishing to stop here for a few nights while heading south or north, or for a tournament. MacDonald Beach is an attractive park with plenty of space, a water supply and showers and

a caretaker. It is only a threekm walk to the Canada Line transit to Richmond shops and attractions and events. Add a 15 amp electrical hookup and wi-fi and over $50/ space daily is possible. Though a sani-dump is also desirable, if stays are limited to three to four days it isn’t essential. Subsequently, if RV visits become as popular as in past, a pump out service or sani-dump could be added later. While Richmond is considering spending millions on an Olympic Museum to boost oval attendance a bit, it seems so obvious that Richmond should spend thousands to provide for RV tourists to visit. Peter Mitchell Richmond

Childcare is about a community of care Editor: As a first-time parent in 2003, I worried about returning to work in the midst of a childcare shortage, particularly for infants and toddlers. 10 years later, and after enrolling three children at Bowling Green Children’s Centre, our time has come to say good bye. My husband and I learned so much from the talented early childhood educators at Bowling Green. They taught us strategies to deal with challenging behaviour and opened our eyes to the amazing things our children were capable of. They helped prepare us and our children for kindergarten. And, at the end of every day, they made us feel as if our children were special. The Society of Richmond Children’s Centres is a non-profit organization currently running Bowling Green, Cook Road and Terra Nova Children’s Centres. Under the guidance of their dedicated executive director, Nicky Byres, and board of directors, the society provides an outstanding service for our community. Luckily for Richmond families and businesses, the society

is growing and will soon open the West Cambie Children’s Centre. Sadly, 10 years after having my first child, the overall shortage of quality childcare, particularly for infants and toddlers, still exists. As parents, we don’t work to buy fancy cars, Jimmy Choo shoes or go on elaborate

vacations. We work to pay our mortgages, afford orthodontics and give our children music lessons. We may work, but we also devote ourselves to our children. Childcare is not about delegating the raising of our children to someone else. It is about a community of care—one that allows

Thanks to quick police action a terrorist plot is foiled Editor: Thanks to the quick action and cooperation between RCMP-led Integrated National Security Enforcement Team in BC, CSIS, RCMP and other law enforcement agencies, a major tragedy has been averted from happening. All of these agencies must be com-

mended for preventing carnage in our provincial capital on Canada Day. It is hard to imagine as to why the two Canadian born and bred suspects would even think of killing and injuring innocent Canadians celebrating this country’s birthday with a great deal of enthusiasm.

This goes to show that no community or country is safe from these fanatics with twisted minds. Thank God the dedicated professionals charged with the safety and security of this nation and its citizens are proactive, vigilent, alert and on the ball. Balwant Sanghera Richmond

HAD IT WITH DENTURES?

Do you suffer from any of the following: • Unstable dentures when speaking, laughing, eating or even smiling? • Use denture adhesive goo? • Difficulty eating certain or many foods? • Unable to enjoy the taste of foods you used to enjoy because of palate coverage and plastic bulk? If you answer YES to any of these questions, you may want to consider finding out if dental implants are an option for you. Some denture wearers do not experience enough problems to feel fed up with their dentures (yet). Most denture wearers are not even aware of the vast improvements that implant dentistry can provide to their health, happiness and well-being. If you’re curious, even if you’re not ready yet, it is worth your while to get the information.

“Over the last twelve years and several upper dentures, realignments and much discomfort, I consulted Dr. Nelson. Dr. Nelson recommended implants that would secure and hold my denture in place. The surgery was quick and painless. My existing denture was fitted onto the implants and it was a perfect fit! It is indeed great to know that such procedures are available to troubled denture wearers. I smile even more now and with more confidence.” Elke F., Richmond, BC

argot Berwin, the author of Scent of Darkness, has created a mesmerizing novel that transports the reader to the dark, hot bayous of Louisiana, where Tarot card readers, fortune tellers and healers populate the story.

Evangeline, a young woman whose grandmother Louise is an aromata, or creator of scents, is left a gift that is both intriguing and troubling. When Louise dies, she leaves her house in the tiny town of Cyril to Evangeline. Inside is a white room that has always been off limits to Evangeline. When Evangeline first goes to the house after her grandmother has died, she finds a young man, Gabriel, inside, studying. She comes to believe that Louise has sent Gabriel to her as a special gift. No sooner do the two realize their mutual attraction, than they start to explore the house. Upon entering the white room, they find a special elixir in a ruby vial that has been left for Evangeline. Cautious about opening it, since the warning accompanying it tells her that her life will change forever once the vial is opened, Evangeline decides to take the chance. Once she opens the vial and places the liquid on her neck, her life is irrevocably transformed. The scent from the ruby vial makes Evangeline instantly irresistible to everyone—men, women, and animals.

Not understanding the powerful effect of the scent, Evangeline and Gabriel attempt to carry on with their lives. But soon enough they realize that Louise’s gift to Evangeline is both a blessing and a curse. Gabriel asks Evangeline to go to New Orleans with him while he’s studying medicine, and she agrees, having nothing to hold her to Cyril. Once there, they meet their new landlord Michael Bon Chance, a painter, who is instantly drawn to Evangeline. Likewise, she is inexplicably drawn to Michael, while still in love with Gabriel. She says “I didn’t belong to myself anymore; the power of my scent had made me public property.” Soon after meeting her, Michael asks Evangeline to “sit” for him while he paints her. Bored and unemployed, Evangeline takes up his offer, not realizing that this is the beginning of the road to destruction for her and Gabriel. What transpires in between is filled with fortune tellers, predictions and a restlessness that can’t be quenched. Evangeline says at the end “I had been in love with two men at the same time, and one was evil and one was good.” The story, while compelling in its premise, is as slow moving as thick oil. But the setting of New Orleans exudes the smells, sounds and sights that only Louisiana can conjure up. Engulfed in the heady mix of scents and lust, Evangeline learns that sometimes what looks like a gift can turn out to be a curse. I haven’t read anything quite like Scent of Darkness before, but I enjoyed its meandering storyline and sensual premise. Berwin is also the author of Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire.

news

Health officer joins call for health impact study on coal by Jeff Nagel Black Press Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall is wading into the debate on increased coal exports through Metro Vancouver, backing calls for a health impact assessment on a proposed new terminal on the Fraser River. He spoke out Wednesday, a day after Vancouver council voted 9-2 to ban coal movement, handling or storage within Vancouver city limits as a preemptive strike against any similar proposal. “I think it would be eminently sensible,” Kendall said when asked by Black Press if he supports the requests from Lower Mainland medical health officers for a health impact assessment. He noted Dr. Patricia Daly of Vancouver Coastal and Dr. Paul Van Buynder of Fraser Health have raised potential risks to the public from air quality degradation and coal transportation issues related to the Fraser Surrey Docks proposed terminal, which could see eight million tonnes of coal per year

loaded from trains onto barges. “I think it makes sense to ask the proponent to do the studies,” Kendall said. “I think it would be a useful thing to do because it might indicate risks that can be mitigated. If you can demonstrate you can mitigate the risks it might reassure folks.” Kendall denied he has authority under the B.C. Public Health Act to order a health impact assessment – a City of Vancouver staff report said he can mandate one. “I don’t have that power,” he said. But Kendal noted the province delegates its air quality authority to Metro Vancouver, so the regional district has considerable power to require further study at the permitting stage. Port Metro Vancouver is expected to rule at any time on the Fraser Surrey Docks terminal. It previously approved an expansion of Neptune Terminals in North Vancouver to export more coal, but the terminal operator there has yet to make a formal application

to Metro Vancouver for an air quality permit. Metro Vancouver Air Quality District Director Ray Robb confirmed he could –  if he decides it’s necessary –  require a health impact assessment either in advance of an air

quality permit decision or as a condition of granting one. Vancouver’s revision of its zoning bylaw to block any coal exports there came in response to industry inquiries about the potential to ship coal from

private waterfront land in the northeast corner of the city. Politicians from the Kootenays spoke out at the council meeting in defence of the coal industry, arguing it supports thousands of jobs in their

region alone. Richmond Coun. Harold Steves, who has fought the port’s incursions into agricultural land, said he doubts the City of Vancouver’s ban has real teeth to block a new coal terminal there.

The port has taken the position it can supersede the Agricultural Land Reserve if necessary to develop new terminals, Steves noted, and he said it could likewise use its federal powers to override Vancouver zoning.

The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, September 9, 2013 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, December 9, 2013.

Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

101 things to do in Richmond

101 things

to do in Richmond Summer is here and the time is right for checking out the many things to do around Richmond. Here’s a list of some of the many fun things you could do on a Richmond staycation.

1. Iona Jetty. How would you like to take a walk right out into Georgia Strait? The Iona Jetty stretches nearly four kilometres into the water and features a walking or cycling path atop a large sewage outfall pipe. That’s much better than it sounds. The jetty is at the northwest tip of Sea Island. 2. Richmond Maritime Festival. From Aug. 9 to 11, celebrate the seas at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site. It’s the 10th anniversary of the festival, which features maritime displays, entertainment, children’s activities and much more. Among the vessels taking part this year is the tall ship Lady Washington. See www.richmondmaritimefestival. ca for info. 3. London Heritage Farm. Home to a fully-restored, 1880sbuilt farmhouse and located in a park-like setting across from the South Arm of the Fraser River. The house is open to the public with entrance by donation and features six rooms, including a countrystyle tea room which serves “London Lady”—London Farm’s own blend of tea—and homemade scones. 6511 Dyke Rd., www.londonheritagefarm.ca. 4. The Gulf of Georgia Cannery is a national historic site that commemorates the fishing industry. The Steveston site was used as a cannery, reduction plant, and net loft beginning in 1894.

101 things to do in Richmond 17. City Centre Concert in the Park. Catch the sounds of the city at this popular series of free performances featuring the likes of DJ Only (July 17), Lori Moore (July 24), Rick Parnell (July 31) and Sweet Scarlet (Aug. 7) through to the end of August at Garden City Community Park. 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. 18. Richmond Public Market. Home to a cornucopia of ethnic foods, the Richmond Public Market is a one-stop shop at which to purchase fresh produce or enjoy generous servings at low prices of such dishes as vegetarian dumplings and noodle soup. 19. See Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons at River Rock. One of the premier recording acts of the 1960s, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons scored 29 top 40 hits. Today, their doo-wop-influenced sound is trending again thanks to the success of the Tony Awardwinning musical Jersey Boys which chronicles the life and times of Valli and his group which are set to perform Aug. 9 at the River Rock Carsino Resort. 20. Yonex Canada Open. From July 16 to 21, some of the top badminton players from around the globe will converge in Richmond for the Yonex Canada Open at the Richmond Olympic Oval. 21. Kite flying at Garry Point Park. The next time someone suggests you go fly a kite, consider taking them up on the offer. On a warm, sunny summer day, it’s hard to top the joy while the prevailing wind whips up from the pictur-

esque Fraser River. 22. Richmond Museum. Included in a downtown Richmond complex that also houses the main branch of the public library and the city’s cultural centre and archives, the Richmond Museum’s collection was started in 1961 by a group of local residents and today contains over 12,000 artifacts relating to the city’s history. 23. Watermania. The name pretty much says it all. Part of the extensive Riverport Sports and Entertainment Complex that also includes the six-rink Richmond Ice Centre, Watermania offers a complete aquatic and fitness experience under one roof—including a 57-metre competition pool, one and three metre springboards, a five-metre tower, an interactive wave pool, and a pair of watersides. Oh, and there are two large whirlpools and a 3,000 square foot fitness centre too. 24. The Zone Bowling. Get into the Zone and enjoy the magic of cosmic bowling, where every Tuesday is dinner and bowling night. 25. Dolphin Basketball Classic. Since its creation as a summer event for bragging rights between Richmond high school friends, the four-on-four classic has evolved into one of North America’s premier outdoor hoops events. 26. Terry Fox Run. Inspired by a dream to eradicate cancer, the annual Terry Fox Run will be held in Richmond Sept. 15 at Garry Point Park. Registration will be at 8 a.m., with the one, five and 10-kilometre

runs starting at 10 a.m. 27. Nations Cup. Billed as Western Canada’s Premier Summer Soccer Tournament, the 34th annual Nations Cup kicks off July 19 to 21 at Hugh Boyd Park. The unique concept of grouping players based on their ethnic backgrounds and/ or countries or origin creates an exciting atmosphere that provides players and fans alike the chance to express their ethnic pride. 28. Watching/photographing the planes landing at YVR. It’s a long held tradition among local residents to head over to Sea Island and check out the action in the air. On any given day, particularly the clear summer ones, it’s commonplace to see eyes and cameras focused on the skies as planes of all sizes take off or land at Vancouver International Airport. 29. Richmond Sockeyes. The best Junior B hockey team in Western Canada (winners of the 2013 Keystone Cup) begins the 2013-14 Pacific Junior Hockey League season in September. The team plays its home games every Thursday, beginning at 7 p.m., at Minoru Arenas. 30. Blueberry Sale & Tea. An annual tradition, Richmond Nature Park’s blueberry sale and tea is back Aug. 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s a great chance (or excuse) to have a delicious piece of pie, or you can take home a carton of fresh berries. There’s also the chance for kids aged four to 12 to enjoy a pony ride. Call the park at 604-718-6188 for details.

Donations from the community help equip Pulmonary Function team From Page 22 From pulmonologists (physicians who diagnose and treat disorders that affect the respiratory system) to respiratory therapists (health care professionals who support sick patients with oxygen and inhaled medications and education), we are so fortunate to have this talented and caring health care team in our own backyard. I would like to introduce you to UBC Associate Clinical Professor in Medicine and Richmond Hospital’s lead pulmonologist, Dr. Iqbal Ahmed, who can tell us how this specialized part of our hospital works to serve you and your family: “Being part of Richmond Hospital’s exceptional Pulmonary Function team is an absolute privilege. The men and women on this team are so passionate about treating patients and improving their quality of life. Many people don’t realize how widespread lung problems are in our community and how vital

successful diagnosis and treatment can be. Often those most affected by breathing disorders are highly contributing members of our community, such as construction workers who breathe in fine particulate material and fumes or firefighters who may inhale smoke and other foreign fumes. “Today I want to thank you. It’s because of your generous donations that we can purchase the best equipment for the job. “If it weren’t for Richmond Hospital Foundation and donors like you, we would have to do without the equipment we so critically need. For example, donor gifts have been made toward helping us purchase a body plethysmograph, or ‘breathing box.’ We need this equipment to be able to diagnose a variety of lung conditions, including COPD, emphysema, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, restrictive lung diseases and occupational lung diseases. Our current breathing box has served us well but is now at the

end of its lifespan. “If our aging ‘breathing box’ broke down, we would not be able to have it serviced and could not treat Richmond’s patients. Modern equipment makes a tremendous difference in how well we can do our jobs, and so we are very grateful that you can help us bring the right tools to our hospital. “With your continued support we will be able to continue to go above and beyond in providing quality care to you, our patients and our neighbours. When it comes to living a healthy life, breathing quality air is non-negotiable. The good news is that we’re here. Breathe easy—if you need us, Richmond Hospital is ready to care for you.” Please tell us your own story. If you have had a positive lifechanging experience at Richmond Hospital, we would love to hear from you. Please email us at info@richmondhospitalfoundation.com.

Formerly the Elephant and Castle, the eatery suspended by stilts above the Fraser River offers amazing views thanks to tall, wrap-around windows. The trend at eateries is for people to share a handful of dishes rather than order individually, which encourages interaction and stimulates conversation, he said.

Soccer spawns special memories Richmond tops showcase tournament as Special Olympics BC, BC Soccer unite by Don Fennell Sports Editor It was a spectacle like few others. Where the true spirit of sport shone every bit as brightly as the midday sun.

of soccer being played, four Special Olympics squads from Richmond, Abbotsford, Mission and North Vancouver demonstrated the skills of Special Olympics athletes. All four played hard, but Richmond was fortunate to win all of their games and claim gold medals courtesy of BC Soccer. The Richmond team proved to be a Pawer-ful force, led by showcase tournament MVP Brayden Pawer and his head coach/dad Jeff. The players were particularly proud of their achievement given the hard work they’ve put in preparing for the Special Olympics Summer Games this weekend in Langley. Richmond will be representing their region at the Games in hoping of becoming provincial champions. Jeff Pawer was ecstatic about last weekend’s partnership between BC Soccer and Special Olympics BC. “BC Soccer always put on first-class tournaments and together will the local organizing committee on the North Shore this showcase tournament was no exception,” he said. “All of the Special Olympics’ athletes felt welcome and very much a part of this exciting weekend.” With respect to Richmond’s success, Pawer said his team came to play hard and use all of the skills and strategies

Minor Baseball Midget AAA game Saturday at Latrace Field. Cloverdale, however, went on to win the game 7-2 and topok the nightcap too, 4-3.

Midget AAA Chuckers still finding their way by Don Fennell Sports Editor

Western Canada’s Best attended Charity event

While still a work in progress, the Richmond Chuckers are clearly beginning to look like a team capable of playoff success. And certainly that’s the hope of longtime manager Raul Verde Rios, who continues to be optimistic even after the Chuckers dropped both ends of a B.C. Minor Baseball Midget AAA doubleheader last weekend at Latrace Field. “We didn’t play that poorly in the first game, but (as has often been the case) we had one particularly bad inning,”Verde Rios said of Richmond’s 7-2 opening-game loss to league-leading Cloverdale. He was even more encouraged following the nightcap which Cloverdale won 4-3, but needed extra innings to do so. The winning score was the result of a walk. Buoyed by the presence of a few Premier league players, Cloverdale is the class of the league as reflected in their 29-win, two-loss record. But it could be argued Richmond (provincial silver medallists a year ago and currently fighting for a

playoff spot at 13-17) also gave their opponents too much respect. “We made some adjustments to try to maximize our potential in the second game and we saw some things we hoped to,” Verde Rios explained. “We know (Cloverdale) is a very good team, but we wanted to see how well we’d compete against a top team. Good teams are going to push your limits and that’s why I’m trying to get our team to do. They’re not out of league, we just to have to be better mentally prepared to compete against teams like them.” Cloverdale built up a 3-0 lead after three innings in the opening game, but Richmond rallied with two in the bottom of the fourth before squandering four runs in the top of the fifth. Michael Yamaguchi with a double, single and RBI and Nikky Mah with a single and double were both 2-for-3 for the Chuckers. The second game was scoreless until the fourth inning— thanks in part to the fine pitching of Byron Prasad of the Chuckers— when Cloverdale scored twice. Richmond is scheduled to host Kamloops on Sunday (beginning at

noon) at Latrace Field. Kamloops is 10-19 on the season. •BANTAMS CONTINUE ROLL: In contrast to the Midget AAA Chuckers, Richmond’s Bantam AAA team keeps rolling along. Coming off winning five games to capture the Bantam Wood Bat Classic in Kamloops lasts weekend, defeating the Aldergrove Dodgers 10-4 in the championship final, the Chuckers sit second in the league standings with 23 wins against six losses. Vancouver is tops at 27-6, but has played four more games than Richmond. Mackenzie Marquis threw the first three innings of the tournament final against Aldergrove, before making way for Ryder Davis for the final four innings. The pair combined on a five-hitter. Marquis also scored once, while Marc Ashford and Isaiah Hayes each crossed home plate twice. Alex Dawson, Mitchell Rennie, Spencer Rankin, James Hardy and Logan Newman also scored for Richmond, which is slated to play in Nanaimo and Campbell River this weekend.

Vacationing in style at The Cottages at Osoyoos Lake The hot summer weather has finally arrived, and it’s officially time to get away on a long-awaited vacation. What better place to relax with the family than at your own lakeside cottage in sunny Osoyoos? “You might get only an inch of rain a month here,” says Eric Van Maren, partner of Van Maren Construction Group. The company is currently selling the Cottages at Osoyoos Lake, a gorgeous waterfront property with 284 cottages, tons of amenities and a close proximity to everything Osoyoos has to

offer. A wide range of people have been interested, but Van Maren notes that something did surprise him. “Many of our buyers are retired or planning to be retired,” Van Maren says, chalking that up to “Osoyoos is a more relaxed pace of life.” Many of these buyers are looking to live in their cottage fulltime, a serious possibility when the homes range from 1,281 to over 3,000 square feet with two to four bedrooms. With 14

different floorplans to choose from, it won’t be hard to find the perfect space. “I think the number of retired buyers speaks to the amenities that are available here,” Van Maren says. “These are detached homes for the price of condos.” You’ll also get access to two swimming pools, a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse and 20 acres of lawn, on top of the 1,500 feet of waterfront and 500 feet of beach. Buyers with families are also a big demographic at the cottages. Van Maren says the project is perfect for children, who can play on the beach or on the lawn and make friends with other cottage-goers. The location is definitely the biggest draw for those who want a taste of waterfront living without a high price point. “This is the warmest lake in British Columbia,” says Van Maren, adding that Osoyoos is also the wine capital of B.C. and has several golf course within 10 to 15 kilometres of the project. For more information about the Cottages at Osoyoos, visit www.osoyooscottages.com or call 1-855-742-5555.

includes multiple workout areas, a large outdoor deck, a games area with billiards tables, foosball tables and a big-screen TV and, best of all, a huge indoor atrium soaring 32 feet high with trees and a park-like feel. The atrium will also include plenty of greenery and places to sit and relax. Other amenities at The Summit Club include a lounge with a chef ’s kitchen, a baby grand piano and plenty of space to entertain, and a children’s play area on the fifth floor. MThree is located in the thriving neighbourhood of Coquitlam Town Centre, meaning you can easily walk to shopping, restaurants, schools and leisure activities. You’ll also find the upcoming Evergreen Line and the West Coast Express easily accessible, so your commute doesn’t need to include a car. Homes at MThree start in the low to mid-$200,000s for a one-bedroom and the low-$300,000s for a two-bedroom. For more information, visit www.liveatmthree.com, call 604-472-9555 or visit the presentation centre at 2992 Glen Drive, Coquitlam, open every day except Friday between 12 and 5 p.m.

The homes at Cressey’s MThree include overheight ceilings, spacious open floorplans and the renowned CresseyKitchen, with its integrated European appliances, wood-grained laminate cabinetry and quartz composite countertops.

MThree hits a summit in Coquitlam By Kerry Vital

Cressey is rising above the rest with MThree, Coquitlam’s tallest tower at 48 storeys and the final phase in their very popular Metropolitan Series. “The response has been phenomenal,” says Cressey Senior Development Manager Jason Turcotte. “We have a variety of homes to choose from, and people are loving the amenities and the finishings.”

MThree joins MOne and MTwo, which raised the bar for condominiums in the neighbourhood. “Each project has added pieces to the puzzle,” Turcotte says. “The feedback has been great, and I think it’s really helped buyers to physically see what we’re offering here.” Like all Cressey projects, one of the most amazing features at MThree is also one of the main gathering areas in the home. “We take a lot of pride in our CresseyKitchens,” Turcotte says. “The kitchen design at the presentation centre is in virtually every home in the project. People love being able to touch and feel the kitchen they will actually have in their home.” The kitchens at MThree include woodgrained laminate cabinetry, modern undercabinet lighting and sleek quartz composite countertops, complemented by a glass tile backsplash and integrated European

appliances that will please any gourmet chef. Moving into the bathrooms, you’ll find a luxurious rain shower head perfect for washing away the day’s stresses, in-floor heating (in the main bathroom in the onebedroom homes and in the ensuite in the two-bedroom homes) and large handset tile flooring. The ensuite bathroom also includes a limestone countertop, while the main bathroom features marble countertops. There are a variety of floorplans available, ranging from over 600 square feet to more than 1,000 square feet in the penthouse homes. Every home is built in an open-plan layout to maximize your square footage, and the overheight ceilings add to the sense of space. The best part of MThree could be The Summit Club, located on the top two levels. With over 9,000 square feet of space, the amenities are spectacular. The clubhouse

The free-admission/free-parking event is expected to draw about 3,000 people to The Sharing Farm at 2771 Westminster Highway, at the Terra Nova Rural Park. It's one of 101 Things to Do in Richmond this summer. See p. 14 for more information on this and 100 other local events and activities.

Many of the people who rely on The Sharing Farm for the most nutritious part of their daily meals don’t even know of its existence. As Richmond Food Bank executive director Margaret Hewlett aptly put it, “when somebody’s in a crisis situation, that’s not a piece of information they’re looking for, or even take in.” But that lack of awareness— exacerbated by the language barriers on ethnically diverse Lulu Island—makes the daily supply of fresh fruits and vegetables grown by the hundreds of volunteers and a handful of part-time staff at Terra Nova Rural Park no less critical.
