Gemma just wants to play Amanda Bostik is hoping to make local playgrounds more accessible to those with limited mobility by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter If Gemma Violet Neselle Bostik has taught her mom Amanda anything, it’s that anything is possible. Born with a neuromuscular disorder on Feb. 18, 2010, Gemma’s muscles weren’t strong enough to allow her to do most things babies do, and her prognosis was grim. Today, at the age of 3, Gemma has confounded her doctors, acting and behaving much like other kids her ago do. (She tried to put a piece of bark mulch into her mouth, only to be told it was “yucky” and then respond by firmly flinging it away.) But unlike other children, she’s unable to access local playgrounds which are often surrounded by barriers, from foot-high wooden beams to piles of grey sand that inadvertently block stroller access. And even for those playgrounds that do allow wheelchair access, there’s nothing on the playground for Gemma to play with. “It’s because of Gemma that I am doing things now, to help people in society. She’s non-verbal, but she inspires everyone around her to be the best, to do things for other people, and to be the best that we can be,” Amanda said. For the past two years, Amanda has been meeting with city officials in hopes of having a local playground upgraded to make it fully accessible. And while the city is on board with adding accessible playgrounds, there’s still the matter of accessing funding. So she’s organized a number of fundraisers in the upcoming weeks. Gemma won’t be the only one to enjoy the new facilities. “It’s benefitting everybody in the community,”

Amanda said of her efforts to bring more accessible playgrounds to the community. She said not only will all children be able to play with the new equipment which costs tens of thousands of dollars but so will teenagers, adults and even seniors with mobility limitations. Amanda said whenever she brings Gemma to a playground, Gemma lets her frustration be known, as she longingly looks at the equipment. “Back when we were in the hospital, I was sort of surprised, because we did have some spe-

Kids come to nature park for ponies and blueberries

Martin van den Hemel photo Flames shot through the roof of this townhouse on No. 3 Road around 8 p.m. Friday, as nearly two dozen members of Richmond Fire-Rescue tried to gain the upper hand.

Townhouse residents tried to fight fire Pests, unclean conditions close before calling 911

Amanda Oye photo Ponies and blueberries were a draw for Kevin and Sabrina Zhu as well as other visitors to Richmond Nature Park on Sunday for the annual Ponies in the Park and Blueberry Sale. See story on p. 19.

Locals urged to exit first, then call 911 in event of fire by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Two people were taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation following a Friday evening fire at a townhouse complex on No. 3 Road, at Saunders Road. Richmond Fire-Rescue’s Kim Howell said the blaze appears to have started in the townhouse’s attic space. While two townhouse were extensively damaged, it’s the response to the fire that has Howell really concerned. Rather than calling 911 right away, the homeowners at first tried to douse the flames themselves with a fire extinguisher. It wasn’t until that effort failed that they called for help. By then, precious minutes had

elapsed, and when fire crews arrived, flames could be seen shooting through the roof. When there’s a fire, the first thing people should do is get out of the building, Howell cautioned. She said a fire can double in size every eight minutes. They should then call 911, and finally, if they’ve got a fire extinguisher, attempt to battle the blaze themselves, Howell said. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but there were no injuries to firefighters or other civilians. The cost of repairs to the two townhomes isn’t known. The fire appears to have broken out around 8 p.m., with at least four fire trucks seen racing to the scene early on. No. 3 Road was shut down to traffic as firefighters worked on the fire, with a large crowd of people gathered on the sidewalk to watch, photograph and video the firefighters at work. The two people taken to hospital were released that same evening.

Kalok Seafood Restaurant by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Kalok Seafood Restaurant, on Capstan Way, became just the fourth local eatery to be closed this year by Vancouver Coastal Health for pest infestation and unsanitary conditions. The eatery was ordered closed Thursday when environmental health officer Nigel Headley conducted an inspection that found issues inside the restaurant, at 1008-8300 Capstan Way, near Hazelbridge Way. It still had not opened as of Tuesday afternoon. The restaurant was the subject of a routine inspection on Monday, July 29, which revealed three issues, and resulted in a verbal directive and a warning letter to be issued: • presence of rodent activity onsite. Pest control report indicated activity within the last two days. Required to increase pest control frequency and seal all possible pest entry site into the building. • potentially hazardous foods being held at room temperature for more than two hours • large king crab stored in the freezer onsite. Operator stated that it is his personal product and will be taking it home today. No receipts available for the crab. Operator also indicated that the holding tank broke down and the crab died so they held it in the freezer. Product put on hold until further notice from our department.

In a closure order posted on the restaurant’s entrance on Thursday, Headley explained the reasoning behind the order. Headley said he had “reasonable and probable grounds to believe” that Kalok was contravening sections of the B.C. Food Premises Regulation, which required the premises to be free of pests, free of conditions that lead to the harbouring or breeding of pests and protected against the entrance of pests. The restaurant, operated by Wei Ning Wu, was ordered to “remove all cockroaches and rodents, dead or alive, from the premises. All contaminated areas must be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized using a bleach solution of at least 100 ppm concentration.” The restaurant was ordered to update its sanitation plan “with specific details in regards to pest control measures within the premises,” and to “contact a professional pest control service company to control and eliminate rodent and cockroach activity in the premise. Pest control service must be implemented daily, and after each service, submit all pest control service reports to Richmond Health Protection for review.” Further, if the restaurant fails to comply, it will “not be permitted to re-open.” Three customers prepared to eat at Kalok around 10 a.m. Friday were surprised by the closure, and after reading it, simply left, saying only that they were not regular customers.

Pot cases down, heroin, meth on rise by Tom Fletcher Black Press Marijuana possession cases still account for 60 per cent of drug violation reports to police in B.C., but the number of cases declined 10 per cent in 2012, according to new figures from Statistics Canada. There were 25,432 police-reported incidents of drug offences in B.C. last year, a 7.4 per cent decline from 2011. Marijuana trafficking cases declined more than 20 per cent to 1,006 incidents, and importation and exportation of marijuana declined by 40 per cent. Marijuana growing cases declined 4.6 per cent, following a 28.6 per cent drop in 2011. Heroin possession cases jumped more than 30 per cent to 500, and heroin trafficking cases rose 37 per cent to 224 incidents in 2012. There were 653 reported cases of possession of methamphetamine (crystal meth), a 20 per cent increase over 2011, and 110 per cent more than 2009. The decline in B.C. marijuana cases comes as licensed medical marijuana production increases across North America. Colorado and Washington state voted to legalize sale to adults last year. In July, Elections BC gave approval in principle for a petition drive aimed at decriminalizing marijuana possession in B.C. Marijuana activist Dana Larsen has formed a group called Sensible B.C., aimed at forcing a change to B.C. law that would prevent police resources from being used against simple possession of marijuana. Sensible B.C. is using the same voter initiative system that forced the repeal of the harmonized sales tax in B.C. The group will have 90 days starting Sept. 9 to collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered provincial voters in each of B.C.'s 85 electoral districts. If that target is met, a province-wide vote would be held on the proposed law. Individuals and groups have until Aug. 12 to register with Elections BC to oppose the initiative by advertising and collecting signatures against the initiative.

RUSS BAKER WAY REPAVING PROJECT BEGINS JULY 15, 2013 This summer, Vancouver Airport Authority will repave Russ Baker Way between Miller Road and Inglis Drive.

W

hen the Liberal government and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation signed a short collective agreement in the summer of 2012, nobody anticipated the same players would be back at the bargaining table 12 months later.

But here we are in 2013 with the re-elected B.C. Liberal government making drastic changes to how the bargaining process will go this time around. Last week’s announcement by Education Minister Peter Fassbender to remove school trustees from the board of the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association could be a step in the right direction for both sides. The minister’s claim that this will allow the union to negotiate directly with the government, as opposed to an intermediary whose hands are essentially tied, should give the teachers more clout at the bargaining table. For whatever reason, whenever the BCTF goes through negotiations it’s a more tumultuous, public process than other unions in the province. Having to go through a middleman—the BCPSEA—wasn’t working to

Education Minister Peter Fassbender

anyone’s benefit, especially given that the government, which has the power to legislate teachers back to work or tear contracts, was using BCPSEA as a wall between them and the teachers. This shift shows the province is taking a slightly

softer and more direct approach to bargaining with the teachers, and that’s a good thing. But it’s likely motivated in some ways by their unprecedented move to seek a 10-year agreement with the teachers. As it stands, there’s nothing in it for the BCTF to

agree to such a lengthy contract. Ten years is an unbearably long time to be locked into a contract, especially when one considers the ups and downs of the Canadian economy we saw in the last decade. If the government is trying a “we scratch your back,

you scratch ours” approach to bargaining, it’s not going to work. A more open bargaining process between both sides is a step in the right direction to hopefully longterm labour peace, but 10 years is too long. —Black Press

B.C. Views

Tom Fletcher

T

he ceremonies have become common at the B.C. legislature.

Government officials and aboriginal leaders gather to celebrate resource sharing agreements that allow economic development in areas that need employment but are hampered by a century of uncertainty and dispute over treaties, or lack thereof. This approach emerged a decade ago with forest agreements. The B.C. Liberal government bought back

timber cutting licences from big forest firms and made them available for community forests and aboriginal communities who claimed the areas as their traditional territories. Recently the approach was extended to mining revenues and water licence fees paid by private power developers. These are substantial steps forward for the only province in Canada in treaty limbo. A 2010 sharing deal worth more than $30 million in royalties for the Mount Milligan copper-gold mine north of Prince George helped the McLeod Lake Indian Band recover from the pine beetle and forestry slump that devastated its business base. After many years of struggle, Mount Milligan expects to go into production this year. Another agreement with Kamloopsarea communities shared revenues from an expanded Afton mine. Perhaps the most ambitious agreement was

concluded in March of this year when the government signed a deal with the Tahltan Nation for mining and hydroelectric development in remote northwestern B.C. The deal clears the way for a major extension of the BC Hydro grid to power the Tahltan village of Iskut and also the Red Chris metal mine, opening up the region to other mining and hydro potential as well. To get that deal, the province put up $20 million last year to buy back Shell Canada’s coalbed gas leases in the Klappan region, headwaters of the Nass, Skeena and Stikine Rivers. Those leases had become a target of international protest. Even after these expensive concessions, it would be an error to conclude that all is well between the Tahltan and the province. Stikine MLA Doug Donaldson questioned Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad on this point during the recent legislature session. The Tahltan Central Council was pleased about shared

decision-making on resource projects, until they found out that B.C. had handed the environmental assessment of a new open-pit coal mine over to the federal government. The proposed mine is in the Klappan, known around the world as the Sacred Headwaters. Rustad said shared decision-making deals such as the Tahltan agreement do not cover activities of the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. Whether the review of that coal mine is federal, provincial or combined, it requires extensive consultation with affected parties. That’s great, but all that goodwill could evaporate quickly if a coal mine ends up getting a permit despite Tahltan objections. Rustad’s Nechako Lakes constituency is also a focal point for oil and gas pipeline proposals. Donaldson highlighted another problem. Last year the government signed a reconciliation agreement with the Gitanyow First Nation near Terrace, one of many com-

munities struggling to get through the B.C. treaty negotiation process. That agreement included a joint land-use plan. Then the Environmental Assessment Office asked the Gitanyow for its input on proposed gas pipelines through its territory, to feed the government’s liquefied natural gas plans. Again, the joint landuse plan has no provision for pipelines. The Gitanyow hereditary chiefs wrote to the B.C. government in July, threatening to go to court over the pipeline proposal and questioning the value of their hard-won reconciliation agreement. Resource revenue sharing agreements and shared land-use plans are wellintentioned and represent real progress. But these situations show how fragile they are.

letters Fruit is cheaper than danishes

Tunnel vision

Editor: In a recent editorial, there was a comment that grabbed my attention: “Children are forced to replace apples and oranges with donuts and danishes”. I cannot agree with this—when I last checked, these fruits were way cheaper than any goodies from the bakery. An apple or orange may cost around 70 cents each, whereas a danish or donut is at least $2 or more. There seems to be a misconception out there that “healthy” food is so much more expensive than processed food, but with a little education, guidance and creativity, wholesome food can be made into all sorts of nutritious dishes that are really quite economical and pay huge dividends with regard to our health. Perhaps the emphasis should be on education in our schools and community centres as to how to make the best use of our bounty of fresh fruits, vegetables and other local products. In this respect, the Sharing Farm is doing a terrific job, but it cannot reach everyone, so the onus falls on all our educational “outlets” to get the healthy nutrition message out there. Carlie Holland Steveston

Editor: Re: “Not all Metro Vancouver mayors back new Fraser River crossing,” July 31. Surrey mayor Dianne Watts is right. Her reported views combine seismic upgrades and “bolstered transit” for the Massey Tunnel. As discussed in my “Why tunnel action should start right now” column a few months ago, only the internal stage of the seismic upgrades was ever done. However, even the province’s “tunnel replacement” project accepts the value of the other stage—the external one to stabilize the ground around the tunnel and

approaches. The ongoing nonaction on that second stage of seismic upgrades puts tunnel users at pointless risk every hour of every day. It was to be done eight years ago, so our MLAs and council should be able to make a compelling case that we’ve waited long enough. The new Steveston Interchange, planned with design improvements 22 years ago, remains important too. But at this rate we’ll be waiting for another 22 years for actual action. Unless the earthquake comes first. Jim Wright Richmond

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice Editor: I read with interest the recent controversies regarding Chinese signs in Richmond. I used to live in Richmond in the 1990s when I first immigrated from Hong Kong. At that time, the letters to the editor section of your newspaper were full of letters about how Hong Kong immigrants were building “monster houses” and how neighbourhoods changed racially overnight, etc. Interestingly, these issues never die and they have now resurfaced in another form! I am very tired of hearing about this. Quite obviously Asians are not welcomed in Richmond or Greater Vancouver, despite all these talks about “Gateway to Asia”, etc. I was brought up in Hong Kong to believe that I were British, but then have since painfully learnt the “truth” in Vancouver as I did not have the looks to go with it. Living in this part of the country, this issue of English vs. French is part of everyday life. I find it ironic that as Anglophones claim that the language laws in

Québec are discriminating, their counterparts in Richmond want to enact similar laws in Richmond to protect English! Francophones claim that French needs special protection because they live in a sea of English in North America, and that English is the dominating language in the world: I wonder what the Anglophones in Richmond are scared of? Or it is not really about languages? Tom Nicholls Ottawa, Ontario

Swimmers set new Canada Games marks by Don Fennell Sports Editor All those early-morning practices paid off for a pair of Richmond athletes Sunday at the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Que. Richmond Rapids Swim Club teammates Luke Reilly and Magnus Batara both reached the top of the podium with recordsetting performances during opening-weekend competition at the 2013 national games, as Team BC grabbed first place in the overall standings after the first three days of events. National Swimming Canada prospect Reilly established a new meet record of four minutes, 24.26 seconds in winning the men’s 400-metre individual medley at

the University of Sherbrooke pool. Batara did likewise in the men’s Special Olympics’ 50-metre breaststroke which he won in 36.80 seconds. The pair of medals were among nine that Team BC athletes won Sunday, boosting the team total to 11 going into competition Monday. Meanwhile, BC’s women’s softball team, featuring a pair of local players Yasmin Bains and Hilary Strelau, is enjoying great success in the early going. After opening with an 8-1 win over Prince Edward Island, Team BC blanked Saskatchewan 9-1 and topped Alberta 9-1. With Bains contributing a two-run double and later scoring on an error, Team BC also outscored Newfoundland and Labrador 16-1, and shut out Nova Scotia 10-0 with Bains scoring once.

One word can earn you $200 gift certificate by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter How can a single word help you make your mark in history and earn you $200 at the same time? Organizers of a Guinness World Record attempt are still recruiting participants for their effort on Friday, Aug. 9 during the 10th annual Richmond Maritime Festival. The goal: beat the world record of 154 participants in “Most People Singing in a Nursery Rhyme Relay.” The song: “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” The city is hoping to bring together at least 200 participants for the event. Participants must be at least 12 years old, be at the Britannia Shipyard National Historic Site from 3 to 6 p.m. on Aug. 9, and pre-register at www. richmondmaritimefestival.ca

An example of ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat’ is available on YouTube.

All participants will be entered into a draw to win a $200 Richmond Centre Mall gift certificate. Participants between the ages of 12 and 17 must have the consent of their parent or legal guardian. In a song relay, the first participant sings the first word of the song, with the second and subsequent participants each singing a single word, one

after the other. The words must be sung in proper tempo with musical accompaniment, but doesn’t necessarily have to be in tune. All participants will receive a commemorative button and certificate. Participants are encouraged to wear maritimethemed costumes. The official record attemp will occur between 5 and 6

p.m. on Friday, with popular local comedian David C. Jones presiding as emcee, with Richmond’s own Darcy Marquardt, an Olympic rowing silver medalist, serving as one of the official judges of the world record attempt. For an example of what the world-record attempt will be like, visit youtube.com/CityOfRichmondBC

Richmond Maritime Festival set to make a splash Britannia Shipyards to host 10th anniversary edition this Friday through Sunday by Don Fennell Staff Reporter

A

n attempt to set a Guinness World Record in a nursery rhyme relay is sure to be one

of the most memorable activities at the Richmond Maritime Festival this weekend in Steveston. But with this being the 10th anniversary of the annual summer celebration, extended to a full three days at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site, it certainly won’t be the only highlight. The Friday afternoon sing-a-long of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”—from 5 to 6 p.m— will attempt to eclipse the current mark of 154 participants set in March of 2011 at the Partners in Pride Conference in Texas. City of Richmond spokesperson Ted

Townsend is encouraging the public to participate, explaining that while registrations will be accepted on the day of the event, pre-registration at richmondmaritimefestiva.ca is encouraged “to help with organizing.” The musical chorus will be followed in short order by a special 6 p.m. concert by popular Vancouver-based alt-rock band The Nautical Miles. Of course, no maritime-themed event would be complete without a visit by the majestic Lady Washington. The classicallymasted tall ship will drop anchor at Britannia’s 190-metre long dock amongst a flotilla of boats and ships which will be

available for viewing and boarding. The 34-metre long Lady Washington has been featured in several movies and television series including the Pirates of the Caribbean and the hit series Once Upon A Time, which is primarily filmed in Steveston. “The Lady Washington has always been a very popular tall ship when she’s come in for some of the past maritime events. I think it’s partly because she looks like what people imagine when thinking of a tall ship, and the crew all wear period costume,” said Townsend.

Captain Hook’s boat, rumrunner, family fun part of festival From Page 11 Festival-goers will also be able to compare notes with the model from the set of Once Upon a Time, which was constructed so as to not have to bring in the Lady Washington every time they wanted to film a scene on Captain Hook’s boat. “It’s a chance for people to see the magic of television,” said Townsend, who anticipates this year’s attendance figures could also be record-setting. “This is probably (the City of Richmond’s) largest festival after the Steveston Salmon Festival, which of course is a very popular Canada Day tradition that spans over 60 years. Last year we had over 35,000 visitors over the course of the festival, and at Ships to Shore we had a lot of questions about when it was coming. People were saying they couldn’t wait for it.” That’s certainly understandable given the ever-growing range of attractions and entertainment that fills the weekend schedule. Bigger and better than ever, the 2013 Richmond Maritime Festival is three full days of free entertain-

ment, exploration and discovery. From the simple, natural splendour of the oldest shipyard in B.C. to spontaneous performances and ingenious exhibits, there’s something for everyone to enjoy amidst the vast 3.5-hectare site on the Steveston waterfront. “I think what people find the most fun about is just the spontaneity. You never know what you’re going to encounter from one end of the site to the other, which really puts smiles on faces,” said Townsend. “We have lots for everyone to see and do while celebrating Richmond’s maritime heritage—from the flotilla of boats people can explore to buildings on site that have been restored, often with exhibits in them telling the fishing and maritime history in Richmond and B.C. for that matter.” Exhibits include the Chinese Bunkhouse, which reimagines the cramped living quarters that were home to hundreds of Chinese workers employed in the 14 fishing canneries that once dotted the Steveston waterfront. And inside the original shipyard building, visitors can learn about

Terrifying technology Louise Latremouille helps people keep up with computers “Technology terrifies me” is something the great grand-daughter of one of Richmond’s founding families hears often. And it’s no wonder, with the speed technology changes it’s hard to keep up, but Louise Latremouille has made that easy. Technology may change quickly, but so has the landscape of Richmond – dramatically! Louise Latremouille’s great grandparents, Ernest and Edith Cooney’s first farm was on Sea Island, on the land that is now Airport South. The farm was expropriated for the war effort in 1941. The Cooney farm became part of the airport and the Barn became a community centre. It was said the Barn had a great dance floor! Expropriation is never easy and it took 17 months for Wartime Housing Ltd to pay them for the Sea Island property, which left them in the lurch. As soon as they could, they moved to what was known as Brighouse, which you might correctly guess is along where Cooney Road is now. The new farmhouse was across from Brighouse Race Track, which is now Richmond Centre! They were more than farmers, Ernest Cooney was a city councillor from 1930 to 1950 – with the exception of some time in 1941 when, due to the expropriation of their farm and not being able to purchase a new home until they were paid for it. Not being a Richmond landowner disqualified him as a councillor. He also sat on the school board for four years, Secretary for

BC’s first Dairy Board, and was active with the Red Cross. He died of cancer at the age of 74. His grandsons have also died of cancer. Louise’s father died of cancer at only 68 in 2003. With a family history of cancer, Louise has used her beginner computer books as a way to help her raise funds for cancer research. To date the books have helped her raise nearly $38,000 for the fight. Oddly, Louise never set out to write a

series beginner computer books. Her first book grew out of the simple how-to notes she wrote to her own parents when they inherited a computer from their son when they were fighting her dad’s cancer. That first book, appropriately named My Parents First Computer and Internet Guide, has sold over 47,000 copies and was the propulsion that pushed Louise into writing and by default, self-publishing.

Ponies in the Park and Blueberry Sale at Richmond Nature Park

Ponies in the nature park

Around Town Amanda Oye

H

undreds of excited kids lined up to take a stroll through nature on the back of a pony at the Richmond Nature Park’s annual Ponies in the Park and Blueberry Sale last Sunday.

Amanda Oye photos Kiara Lim rides a pony at Richmond Nature Park.

“This is just a fun event for us,” said Kris Bauder, the nature park co-ordinator. “It has been a huge success.” The event was a way to encourage families to come and see the park and, through the blueberry sale, to highlight the uniqueness of bogs. “Blueberries evolved

in bogs,” Bauder said. “It is the flavour of the community and it’s the flavour of this park.” There are native species of blueberries that grow in the park, but are not harvested. The blueberries that were for sale were all locally grown. Also for sale were 28 blueberry pies made by ABC Country Restaurant. “I think anytime there is good food it makes people happy,” Bauder said. All of the proceeds from the blueberry sales will go to the Nature Park Society, and will benefit the society’s educational programs. While the blueberry sale is over, there will be another opportunity for children to take a pony ride through the nature park on Aug. 24.

Gemma just wants to play Amanda Bostik is hoping to make local playgrounds more accessible to those with limited mobility by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter If Gemma Violet Neselle Bostik has taught her mom Amanda anything, it’s that anything is possible. Born with a neuromuscular disorder on Feb. 18, 2010, Gemma’s muscles weren’t strong enough to allow her to do most things babies do, and her prognosis was grim. Today, at the age of 3, Gemma has confounded her doctors, acting and behaving much like other kids her ago do. (She tried to put a piece of bark mulch into her mouth, only to be told it was “yucky” and then respond by firmly flinging it away.) But unlike other children, she’s unable to access local playgrounds which are often surrounded by barriers, from foot-high wooden beams to piles of grey sand that inadvertently block stroller access. And even for those playgrounds that do allow wheelchair access, there’s nothing on the playground for Gemma to play with. “It’s because of Gemma that I am doing things now, to help people in society. She’s non-verbal, but she inspires everyone around her to be the best, to do things for other people, and to be the best that we can be,” Amanda said. For the past two years, Amanda has been meeting with city officials in hopes of having a local playground upgraded to make it fully accessible. And while the city is on board with adding accessible playgrounds, there’s still the matter of accessing funding. So she’s organized a number of fundraisers in the upcoming weeks. Gemma won’t be the only one to enjoy the new facilities. “It’s benefitting everybody in the community,”
