Recycled shipping containers become homes Richmond firm plays key role in creating affordable housing by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It’s a novel idea that could be one solution to the dearth of affordable housing options in the Lower Mainland: turning the millions of vacant shipping containers around the world into homes. Not only did a Richmond firm play a key role in last week’s unveiling of Canada’s first recycled shipping container housing project at 502 Alexander St. in Vancouver, but now local councillors are vowing to give this option a close look to see if this is feasible for Richmond. Gary Vos, founder of Reagle Terminals Inc. at the foot of Garden City Road, told The Richmond Review on Wednesday that for the past two years he’s been enlisted to work on a project to create affordable housing, an effort spearheaded by Atira Women’s Resource Society’s Janice Abbott, along with James Weldon of JTW Consulting and president Frank Lo of shipping firm MC Quarters. The result of their hard work and vision is known as the three-storey Imouto Container Housing project in the downtown eastside of Vancouver comprising recycled shipping containers. The 40-foot-long “cans” were customized at Reagle, with pairs of nearly 10-feet high containers being offset, welded together and metal walls removed to allow passage between the two sides. The result, 290 square-foot units that cost about $82,500—versus

about $220,000 for a 320-squarefoot unit at another housing project for women—were unveiled to positive reviews from Vancouver city councillors and other members of the public. (The units are open for public viewing on Friday, Aug. 9 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday, Aug. 10 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) Vos said it was amazing to see the project come together slowly. Abbot said she’s long like the recycled aspect of using shipping containers, intrigued by their use in projects around the world. But it was B.C. Hydro’s House of the Future, a recycled shipping container housing demonstration project, that served as the inspiration. B.C. Hydro donated it to Atira in 2010. Atira worked closely with James Weldon, who then reached out to Frank Lo, who donated two shipping containers, with another eight being purchased from a broker at the Port of Vancouver. The group then turned to Vos, who donated transportation of the cans to Richmond, provided the land on which the work was done, then sent the combined containers to Vancouver, where the rest of the construction work was completed. “It was unbelievable that they are containers,” Vos said of last week’s unveiling. With an estimated 24 million empty shipping containers around the world, this project demonstrated the feasibility of this type of construction, and the potential benefit to society. “It’s an answer to homelessness, it’s an answer to women’s shelters, making affordable housing, it’s an answer to the government’s problems.” Vos credited Frank Lo’s “genius” in managing to demonstrate to skep-

tical Vancouver city staff who saw the proposal as little more than human warehousing. “They wanted to get away from that. (Frank Lo) was able to convince council to give it a shot.” The 12 self-contained units fit on a standard City of Vancouver lot of 25 feet by 119 feet, with six of the units rented out to older women, with another six provided at housing income limits of between $650 and $850 per month. Both Coun. Bill McNulty, chair of the City of Richmond’s planning committee, and acting mayor Ken Johnston were generally impressed by what they saw and plan to direct city staff to research and

“It was unbelievable that they are containers.” — Gary Voss report on the work done by the City of Vancouver. “It’s actually quite attractive,” McNulty said. “I think it surprised people. They were very creative in their finished product. I guess if it means giving somebody a place (to live), you’ve got to start somewhere. I think because somebody’s already proven (that it works)...I think it warrants careful consideration and exploration to

get all the details that went into the project. “And if it’s a Richmond company, that’s even better.” Added Johnston: “It’s an interesting concept and it’s certainly worth looking at. It would help us with affordable housing.” The City of Vancouver was so pleased and proud of the end result, they are now considering a second similar project for down the street, this one seven-storeys tall and with an elevator. Since the project was revealed, Vos said he’s received calls from other cities inquiring about the unique affordable housing option, including in Northern B.C.

It’s true!

by Tom Fletcher Black Press Commercial and sport sockeye fishing remained closed on the Fraser River system this week, as the Pacific Salmon Commission reported a lower than expected return of fish in what was already expected to be a poor return year. Based on the latest test fisheries, the commission's Fraser River Panel upgraded its forecast of early summer-run sockeye from 400,000 to 452,000 fish. The following summer run "is either lower than forecast or their migration timing is much later than expected," the joint Canada-U.S. panel reported this week. The proportion of late-run sockeye through ocean approach areas has increased in recent days. The late run is expected to be dominated by Birkinhead, Weaver and Late Shuswap sockeye, with some from the Portage and Cultus Lake systems. Water level and temperature in the Fraser system is another concern, after a dry early summer. As of Aug. 5, Fraser River water discharge at Hope was 26 per cent lower than average for that date. The temperature was 20.5 degrees, 2.8 degrees higher than average, a condition that would risk high pre-spawning death if it continues. The 2013 run is the next in the four-year sockeye life cycle after the disastrous 2009 run, which was expected to see 10 million return. Only one million came back.

Hansen’s tour was extra special, extended beyond the traditional three years to a fourth, and gave her the opportunity to go to Europe twice, first for a European tour and then for the Queen’s jubilee celebrations. So when the musical ride comes to Richmond later this month for the first time in its 137-year history, Hansen will be among those in attendance to take in the memorable evening, a moment she will share with her daughter. Hansen said she formed a special bond with her horses as a child, and she’s seen a similar sparkle in her daughter’s eyes. “It’s such a kind animal too, so powerful and they want to please you too.” Musical Ride will be at Twin Oaks Equestrian Centre, 13671 No. 3 Rd. on Wednesday, Aug. 28 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. See Page 13

earning to swim at the local swimming pool is an important rite of passage but some children never learn or their lessons are cut short before they reach competence in the water.

This can be a problem as they take on risky behaviours as teens and young adults, judging by the number of drowning deaths in B.C. In July alone in this province, there were 43 drowning deaths, up from 25 in the same period in 2012, according to BC Stats. That’s an astonishing number. Further study reveals that the likeliest age groups for drowning are people 20 to 29 years of age, and older people, between the age of 50 and 59, proving that no one is too young or too old to learn to be safe around water. Our advice: Check out your local listings for lowcost swimming lessons for yourself and your youngsters, and stay safe around the water this summer and many summers to come. Learning to swim at the local swimming pool is an important rite of passage

Jet fuel proposal is a disaster waiting to happen Editor: Re: “Pipeline plans on track despite spill,” Aug. 2. The jet fuel proposal to ship toxic fuel on the Fraser river is a disaster waiting to happen. VAPOR (the Vancouver Airport Fuel Project Opposition for Richmond) is grateful to The Richmond Review for the story Aug. 2. Mr. Pollard of the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation is quoted as saying “ To generate a significant spill of any kind on the river, you’d have to have an impact, an exceedingly rare event where two ships collide.” If only that was our own concern, but it is not—the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation in its report have guaranteed that there will be spills of jet fuel, potentially 6,000 litres every six years and shockingly120,000 every 32 years—that is four times the spill at Lemon Creek. The Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation have not identified the worst case hazard footprint on their proposed project. The release of flammable and toxic jet fuel into the Fraser River or the underground water table is hazardous to

people’s health and agriculture. If the critical fuel air mixture ignites it would create a deadly blast wave of fire,smoke and flying debris. In Alaska, human error caused a valve to be left open and an entire tank of jet fuel was drained. In the Miami airport, a jet fuel tank explosion was so hot it burned the firefighting equipment and the fire department was forced to let the fire burn out. The proposed site is extremely close to an area subject to liquefaction in the event of an earth quack. Jet fuel catastrophe’s come in many forms and it seams illogical to allow a marine terminal and 80-million litre tank farm, 400 yards from a residential area, but this proposal is not about practicality it is about the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation having control. The Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation as a corporation, has minimal assets that could be seized to provide compensation for such a catastrophe and the province will be forced to pay for disasters.

A consortium of airlines known as the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation is seeking approval for tankers to travel up the Fraser River, en route to a jet fuel tank farm in southeast Richmond.

VAPOR has learned that the airport now has an eight-day supply of jet fuel, which decreases the need for expansion of jet fuel alternatives. The projected passenger numbers have been grossly exaggerated also decreasing the need for expansion. Kinder Morgan has stated

that it is willing to work with the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation to make improvements to the existing pipeline again decreasing the need for a new jet fuel supply. Hurry time is running out! Now is the time to talk to your MLAs and tell them what your concerns

are, before the decision this fall by the Minister of the Environment on the project. MLA Linda Reid has been opposed to the project from the beginning, but MLAs John Yap and Teresa Wat have taken no position. Carol Day Richmond

What if the jet fuel pipeline goes awry?

Editor: Re: “Pipeline plans on track despite spill,” Aug. 1. The issue of the “pipe dream” of this proposal comes down to one of trust. I have trust in river pilots. I have trust in firefighters and emergency crews. I have no trust whatsoever—zip, nada —in the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation. I have faith that should two or more tankers smash up in front of a Saturday lunch crowd in Steveston that reaction and containment would (again at taxpayer’s expense) be swift. However, once the fuel leaves a tanker vessel it’s going to travel underground along precious estuaries and through peat bog and water tables on its’ way to the airport. A breach underground will go undetected for how long? Will it be a cranberry farmer who notices an unproductive area in a field or will it be an unexplained cluster of homes with ill families that will daylight the issue. I am not naive and yes I know that pipelines run safely underground now. Here is my point. I drive a car and I accept that the fuel has to come from somewhere. I also know that these pipelines are monitored and that there will be someone ultimately responsible to pay X the8” cost of clean-up and to be held 3125”

accountable when (not if) something goes awry. Conversely, VAFFC is trying to reduce costs (i.e. not have to pay unionized tanker drivers) to carry fuel to an airport which is doing so well financially that they are now diverting investments from air traffic to shopping malls. When (again not if) something happens the players in VAFFC may have: 1. Gone bankrupt; 2. Are no longer flying into YVR; or 3. Will not have the resources to take responsibility for their mess. I would have more trust in a YVR venture again, because I have “faith” that the airport, despite its current traffic decrease will continue to operate on Sea Island (i.e. be there to take the heat and to be the final resting place when the buck stops). However as YVR appears not to be underwriting this venture I presume that it too does not want to own this. So while the picture of a contrite handwringing airline president may be a comfort to some it is not to me nor should it be to anyone who plans to continue to live in Richmond after the players in this ticking time bomb are nowhere to be found.

Editor: Few cities in the world have the opportunity that currently presents itself to the citizens of Richmond. The Garden City Lands is a predominantly untouched piece of real estate in the middle of a busy urban core. For years the debate has raged as to what our city should do with this piece of land; some favour preserving it as farmland as its current ALR zoning designates, while others would like to rezone and develop the land. I personally believe the solution rests in a combination of both options, creating the most for all citizens of our community today, while creating a legacy for Richmond residents of tomorrow. My answer to this quandary is eco-friendly vertical farming—a

trailblazing solution which using a small portion of the land base, could significantly produce more output than if the entire area were farmed traditionally. Vertical farming is the future. Arable land is fast disappearing and populations around the globe are ever increasing at an unsustainable rate. Resembling high-density residential development in urban areas, future cities will inevitably rely on high-density agriculture. Consider this stat from Scientific American Journal: “A one-squareblock farm 30 stories high could yield as much food as 2,400 outdoor acres.” Engineers calculate a typical city block at roughly 2.25 acres; therefore at 136.5 acres the Garden City Lands would be equivalent to 60 average city

blocks. If 10 per cent of the Garden City Lands (13.65 acres) was used to build six vertical greenhouses, at 10 storeys high (60 storeys total), it would produce the equivalent of 35 times more than if the entire Garden City Lands were farmed traditionally, and leave the other 90 per cent for other community uses, and renewed public discussion. Vertical farming could provide the Richmond with the opportunity to create an audacious legacy, and set a worldwide vision for the future of agriculture; fittingly revolutionizing the same industry which facilitated the establishment of our city in the fertile Fraser River delta over a century ago. The future is bright and it’s time for Richmond to be bold. Matt Pitcairn Richmond

Stop signs are more than a suggestion belong in one of three groups: never learned; have forgotten or simply ignore the rules of the road. Riding a motorcycle in traffic is an exercise in risk management which can have severe consequences if the risk is not managed appropriately. Therefore any driver who does not stop at the correct stop point at an intersection represents a significant hazard to a motorcyclist. Similarly if a motorcyclist fails to stop at the correct stop point they have increased their risk factor significantly. In B.C. the correct stop point at intersections with stop signs is clearly described in

stop sign. The judge agreed with Mr Kinach’s argument and the ticket was “thrown out.” My concern is the decision could be used to deflect driver responsibility to know and follow the rules of the road regardless of “poorly placed signs.” For Mr. Kinach, I would hope his experience would give him pause to consider a review of the ICBC booklet to possibly avoid a “poorly placed” traffic light or some other “poorly placed” traffic control device that could result in something much more costly than a traffic ticket or legal costs. John Ethier Richmond

the ICBC handbook “learn to drive smart” (page 42). The stop sign is simply a “device” that tells a road user that a stop is required at the intersection. The actual stop point however—as Mr. Kinach found out—is somewhat irrespective of the location of the sign and a “poorly placed” sign, in my opinion, does not absolve driver responsibility to know the correct stop point at an intersection with a

Editor: Regarding your article “Traffic ticket thrown out by judge due to poorly-placed stop sign” in the Review on Wednesday, July 31 It seems to me that an important driver responsibility has been obscured by Mr. Peter Kinach’s court success. Don’t get me wrong—I am not unsympathetic. If he indeed executed a full stop at a “poorly placed” stop sign I believe the RCMP officer could have exercised discretion and not issued a traffic ticket. However, as a motorcyclist (and instructor) who rides all year, I am acutely aware of drivers who simply do not see motorcycles and who, among other things: treat stop signs as a suggestion; use yield signs to execute dangerous traffic merges; use signals only when doing so will not interfere with texting and who treat the first three seconds of a red traffic light the same as a green light. I consider these individuals as “average drivers” who

Where are the jobs? Editor: I don’t understand the job application process anymore. In the past, people without any work experience were able to get hired, as the employer would take the time to train them. Nowadays it seems that employers have become lazy, and only want to hire those with previous experience. Do they not see the flaw in this way of hiring? How can those without any experience get that prior experience if they aren’t given a chance to work. Many people find themselves in the cycle of “I don’t have a job because I have no work experience, because I have no work experience because I don’t have a job”. It is a ridiculous cycle that people should be given the chance to break out of. It also bugs me when those who have experience don’t get a job, but those without experience, but who have good looks do. Shouldn’t a person be hired based on their merits, and not on how good looking they are? I understand that for some jobs such as modeling looks are key, but in everyday jobs like retail and fast food I don’t see the relevance. It makes me question what the people who are hiring are using to think with when they make their decisions. This also doesn’t help the customer at all, as the person who is supposed to be helping them may not really know fully well about the products that are being sold, or have the people skills to help the customer to a satisfactory level. This province likes to pride itself in providing employment opportunities for those who live here. But I really don’t see that being put into practice. I think I know now why so many people are moving to other provinces to find work. Maybe British Columbia isn’t so beautiful after all. Vishan Hettiarachchi Richmond

Martin van den Hemel photo Myron Kinach was issued a ticket after he stopped at the stop sign, but not the stop line. A B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled in his favour, finding the stop sign was too far from the intersection, some 16 feet away.

There’s better things to ticket Editor: Re: “Traffic ticket thrown out by judge due to poorlyplaced stop sign,” July 31 I’m confused! If I stop at a stop-sign, and proceed past the white stop line, does this mean that I have broken the law, and will like receive a ticket? have stopped where the stop sign actually is, so why have I broken the law. Should I now stop at the stop sign and then stop again at the stop line? This confusion should be clarified! Do our RCMP officers have nothing better to do than place an officer just around the corner to issue a ticket? Perhaps when school is back in September, the RCMP should have an officer ticketing many people speeding and passing in the school zones and endangering our children’s lives. Or have someone watch the corner of Barnard and Westminster Highway, where people rarely stop at the stop signs. I resent our paying the RCMP to indulge in such petty behaviour reported in this stop sign story. RCMP, do a job where it really counts. Gwen Zradicka Richmond

The RCMP Musical Ride is coming to Twin Oaks on Aug. 28.

32 horses to perform precise drills From Page 7 Tickets are $5 for children ages six to 11, and $10 for anyone 12 or older. Children five and under are free. Ticket sales will be capped at 3,500, and are available at the Gulf & Fraser credit unions in Richmond—7971 Westminster Hwy. and 120-8900 No. 1 Rd.—or online at tinyurl.com/MusicalRideRichmond “I can’t wait to share this experience with Richmond,” Hansen said. “I don’t know anything else that makes you feel so proud to be Canadian. It’s a powerful experience.” Those in attendance will get to see 32 horses with riders and their lances, performing really precise drills on horses to music. The performance runs 35 minutes long, with old-time favourites serving as the background music. “It’s such a spectacular sight seeing these horses doing all of these movements to music, and seeing children enthralled with these great big majestic animals,” Hansen said. The performance will end with a sunset ceremony, the lowering of the Canadian flag at 8 p.m., and the singing of O’ Canada. “I hope everybody comes out. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a traditional icon.” Two VIPs will be in attendance, including Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon and the in-house voice of the Vancouver Canucks, John Ashbridge, who will serve as the event’s emcee. Developed in 1876 by members of the North-West Mounted Police in an effort to display their riding ability

and entertain the local community, the Musical Ride has evolved into a uniquely Canadian performance enjoyed by tens of thousands of people each year.

AM I TOO OLD FOR IMPLANTS? Are you considering implants but feel that your age prohibits you from the benefits of dental implants? You need to know the answer. Age is generally not a determining factor. The key factor in dental implants is your health, not your age. Dr. Nelson can determine if you are a candidate. People are living longer and healthier lives into their 80’s, 90’s and beyond. There is no reason for anyone to to suffer through the last years of their lives with loose dentures and the inability to eat, speak and enjoy a vital and social lifestyle. Your quality of life is especially important at this stage and you need to do everything you can to improve it. Would you love to stay social, eat well and share great times with family and friends without embarrassment & difficulties that come with denture use? If you could have more control over your happiness, health and longevity, wouldn’t you consider all your options? Your dental implant treatment will be more convenient with ALL of your treatment completed in one office by one doctor using new methods & technology and comfortable sedation. Call to get a FREE Report to hear how dental implants are a great way to stop your suffering and regain all the things you’re missing!

'Fantastic,' local Green Fighter says of healthy challenge by Don Fennell Staff Reporter Samantha Jaune lost more than 10 pounds in the recentlycompleted Kin’s Farm Market Green Fighters challenge, and she couldn’t be happier. “It was fantastic and got me into all sorts of new (healthy) habits which I’m carrying on,” she says. Jaune was one of 13 contestants from throughout B.C. to participate in the challenge presented by Kin’s. As a group, the contestants shed a combined 147 pounds over 13 weeks—each of which featured a special challenge and a prize winner. Prizes included dinner for two, spa treatments and a home gym, with the grand prize being a cruise for two to California and a $1,300 grocery credit to Kin’s Farm Market to the individual showing the most overall health improvement during the period. During the contest, each Green Fighter received a support package of more than $2,000 which included free fruits and vegetables at Kin’s, health tests, nutrition consultation, gym membership and personal training consultation. “Everyone looked amazing at the wrap-

Everyone now knows her by name at Kin’s, which she visits at least once a week. “I’m proud of that, and the feeling that I’ve contributed something,” she says. “It’s like community involvement.” Jaune was also proud that the participants were able to raise $8,200 for the Canadian Cancer Society during the Green Fighters Challenge. It was particularly meaningful to her, as it was a way to honour a friend’s dad who passed away from cancer two years ago.

The dog who knew what to do with every person she met

I

Book Club

Shelley Civkin

t’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a cute dog.

So when I saw the adorable Labradoodle gracing the cover of the book A Dog Walks Into a Nursing Home: Lessons in the Good Life From an Unlikely Teacher by Sue Halpern, I just had to read it. Turns out it’s a wonderful, real life story of Halpern and her dog Pransky, who partner up to become a certified therapy-dog team. In the book Halpern recounts the bittersweet relationships she and Pransky formed at the County Nursing Home during the two years they volunteered there.

Halpern writes: “The unasked-for gift of being with people at the end of their lives was not dissimilar to the gift that people who have come through tragedies or accidents or life-threatening illnesses report having been given by those events, which is a simple but profound appreciation of the here and now of life itself.” Despite all her educational accomplishments—Halpern has been a Rhodes Scholar, a Guggenheim Fellow and a scholar in residence at Middlebury College—nothing could have equipped or prepared her for what she would encounter at County

Nursing Home. She says “It would have been easy to find sadness in the whole thing —it was there for the taking.” But instead, she and Pranksy found the joy that comes from connecting with people in unlikely ways. And not just with the old, but also the young and terminally sick. While Halpern might have held the leash, Pransky was the one who took the lead in their visits with the residents at County. She instinctively knew what to do and how to be in every situation, even if her master fumbled along behind her. Pransky seemed to know how to provide the

comfort of her body, whether it was by lying on a dying resident’s bed, or sitting at someone’s feet while being petted. “Love was what she (Pransky) did at County, it was what she dispensed and what she engendered….This was not because she loved unconditionally, but because she loved nonjudgmentally. It was because she gave people the opportunity to love back, to express affection, to forget their afflictions, and to be their essential, authentic, original, loving selves.” This book touched my heart with its many stories of lives enriched, all because of a dog

who knew just what to do with every person she met. Pransky is a gem and I’ll bet you fall in love with her, just like I did. Other titles about the therapeutic use of dogs, and human-animal relationships you might want enjoy are: Comet’s Tale: How the Dog I Rescued Saved My Life; Love at First Bark; You Had Me at Woof; Every Dog Has a Gift; Izzy & Lenore; Therapy Dogs: Training Your Dog to Help Others.

If you can’t afford to vacation in Italy this summer, Aberdeen Centre will bring Italy to you during a month-long presentation at the mall on Cambie Road and Hazelbridge Way. Ciao Italia is a feature exhibition that runs to Sept. 2, and will chronicle the best of Italian culture, history, festivals, art and the top tourist attractions. The exhibit will be featured in the central atrium and first floor hallways. “Ciao Italia take you on a historical and cultural journey featuring iconic sights such as authentic and Canada’s only Sicilian Cart, vintage collectibles and artifacts, displays of world-famous Italian landmarks, automobiles, cultural performances and more,” said Aberdeen Centre’s Joey Kwan. The exhibition will include a miniature replica of the Roman Colosseum, which was the largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire and deemed an engineering marvel.

Friday to Sunday event takes place at Britannia Shipyards

S

et anchor at Britannia Shipyards for the 10th anniversary of the Richmond Maritime Festival. The annual summer celebration, which begins today, has been extended to a full three days at the shipyards National Historic Site.

A sing-a-long of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”— from 5 to 6 p.m. Friday—will attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for a nursery rhyme relay. 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. The classically-masted tall ship Lady Washington 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 Pirates of the Caribbean and Once Upon A Time, which is primarily filmed in Steveston. 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. Bigger and better than ever, the 2013 Richmond Maritime Festival is three full days of free entertainment, 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. Exhibits include the Chinese Bunkhouse, which re-imagines 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 the storied MV Fleetwood, once the fastest boat on the West Coast, with a notorious past as a rum runner during American prohibition when Canadian alcohol was smuggled by the boatload into the U.S. Characters from sea, including singing mermaids and pirates, further help to really bring the history to life.

Mortal Coil has its salmons in a row Actors now rehearsing at Britannia Shipyards for remount of popular made-inSteveston play by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

B

oatloads of boat restorers, boat interpreters and boat tourists weren’t the only ones at Britannia Shipyards this week. Salmon else is walking the planks at the National Historic Site.

Actors are on site preparing for the remount of Mortal Coil Per-

formance Society’s Salmon Row Aug. 15 to Sept. 1. But these folks are no fish out of water. Many cast and crew members were involved in the 2011 show, staged outdoors at a non-intimidating shipyard where nary a plush seat or fancy curtain can be found. “It demystifies theatre. It’s not an elite thing,” said director Peter Hall about the unusual location for theatre. “As soon as they experience it, that they are outside— they get to move from one area to another… I think that’s exciting too, that you’re swept along.” Salmon Row, written by Nicola Harwood with original music by Tobin Stokes, is a theatrical re-telling of Steveston’s last 150 years. Audiences move from one location to another at the site, taking in a show featuring Mortal Coil’s signature puppets, stilts and masks. Adding to it is a live band, First Nations dancers and

a company of professional and community actors. The premiere run sold out in days, so Hall said they knew they were doing something right. “We really hit on something that was of significance to the people who came to see it,” he said. “Of course always when you do a show, especially an original, and a big show like this, the ambitions are huge. To get a second kick at the can is really great, because we also saw what didn’t work.” Hall has since reeled in the show and washed away any bits audiences found fishy. But Salmon Row started as one fine fillet, having been born from three years of script and music development. Hall aims to reflect the experience of immigrant and aboriginal families at a time when the onceabundant resource of salmon was available to exploit. See Page 19

Show moves between four venues From Page 18 The show explores the stories of the First Nations, Chinese, Japanese and European immigrants who come to the west coast of B.C. in search of a better life, and in chase of their dreams. Issues of immigration, ethnic conflict, labour history and memory are explored. “We didn’t want to hit anybody over the head that this is good or this is bad—it just is. If there’s any blame to share, everybody takes a bit of the hit,” he said. “We were focusing on what it did to the families.” The show’s first go-round was by donation and open-concept, making it difficult to distinguish ticket-holders from passersby. This year’s performances are ticketed, with the show performed behind a fence—except for the opening and finale—making for a more fair experience. Within the show, there are four venues. Moving people without herding them is a challenge faced by most site-specific theatre, but

Hall noted the script allows for organic scene changes. For example, the first movement is through gates, as if everyone is about to be put to work. A funeral procession is used as another way to draw audiences into a new area. Of course, outdoor theatre leaves the cast somewhat vulnerable, having no control over potential aircraft noise, curious seagulls or mosquitoes. But what might translate into a pause in dialogue while a noise passes, that’s the price you pay, said Hall. “You’re given this natural scenery, but of course you have to accept everything that comes along with it. And it becomes the actors’, and the audience’s, problem.” Weather has the most potential to be a problem, but if this year is anything like last time, it won’t be an issue. In 2011 it rained just once—on the show’s off-day. Nonetheless, the show is rain or shine, and actors are prepared to move indoors at Britannia if necessary. Hall hopes this unconventional

Hard work lifted Garrison to NHL Ex-Sockeye didn’t play junior until he was 18 by Don Fennell Sports Editor

J

ason Garrison took the less travelled road to the National Hockey League, signing his first pro contract with the Florida Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2008.

And it’s perhaps in part because he was a so-called late bloomer that the now 28-year-old Vancouver Canucks’ defenceman refuses to take his position for granted. “I personally want to take my game to another level,” says the affable Garrison, who during midseason in the 2002-03 season was converted to defence from forward by his former Richmond Sockeyes’ coach Ron Johnson. “Ultimately, every summer, I want to come into the next year feeling better than the last.” Take skating, for example. Though Garrison has always been a good skater, for the last several summers he’s honed that skill working out with fellow pros under the tutelage of renowned skating coach Derek Popke at the Vancouver Hockey School. “There are always so many guys that want your spot,” Garrison reasons. “You have to not only maintain your skills but grow them. For me that happens in the summer, skating with these guys—a lot of whom are young and have a lot of energy and are trying to get to that next level. You can always be better no matter who you are.” Clearly, Garrison appreciates and values the input he gets from Popke who he says “has a good mindset and knows his drills.” During a workout with a group of fellow pros earlier this week in Richmond, Garrison frequently stops to ask what he can do better. “Ninety-nine per cent of players wait for feedback from you, whereas Jay will go through a drill and then explain what it felt like for him,” says Popke, who for three years worked with the Toronto Maple Leafs’ prospects (brought in by Leafs’ general manager Dave Nonis whose son formerly attended the Vancouver Hockey School) and also provided skating instruction to a trio of Stanley Cup winners—Willie Mitchell, Milan Lucic and Brent Seabrook. “(Garrison exchanging ideas) is what separates him from the pack,” continues Popke. “When he goes through a drill he tells you what he thinks he’s doing wrong. By the two of us working together, that’s where you get the ultimate development and progression. He’s as much invested as a player as I am as a coach.” Garrison is the epitome of a player who has made it through

Don Fennell photo Through sheer determination and an unsurpassed work ethic, Vancouver Canucks’ defenceman Jason Garrison has defied the odds to make it to the National Hockey League.

“You have to not only maintain your skills but grow them. For me that happens in the summer, skating with these guys. You can always be better.” — Jason Garrison hard work and passion. “He was not a kid when coming up (in minor hockey) who played on every rep team,” notes Popke. “He was actually a house player growing up, so if ever there was a kid who maybe would want to quit because he didn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel it was him. But through hard work he slowly made his way up to junior, where once again the same thing happened. He was not a Junior A player until 19 (joining the Nanaimo Clippers in 2003-04 after a season playing Junior B for the Sockeyes). “A lot of kids, if they don’t make the Bantam A team, or at 16 and 17 if they haven’t made Junior A, give up,” says Popke. “This was a guy who didn’t make any of those teams but by working on details was able to achieve the ultimate goal. I think as a result that work

ethic is engrained in him.” After two seasons with the Clippers (for whom he scored 22 goals and 62 points in the 200405 season), Garrison was afforded the opportunity to further his education and hockey career by accepting an athletic scholarship to the University of MinnesotaDuluth. He decided to forego his final season of NCAA eligibility to turn pro in 2008-09, spending all but one game with the Panthers’ American Hockey League affiliate Rochester Americans for whom he scored eight goals and 35 points. Garrison toiled in relative obscurity during his first three seasons with the Panthers, but broke out offensively in 2011-12 setting a franchise record for single-season goals by a defenceman with 16. The timing proved to be ideal, as Garrison became a sought-after free agent who signed a six-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks on July 1, 2012. The chance to play for his hometown team was a dream come true, and Garrison feels fortunate the opportunity presented itself. “It’s one of those things you don’t really think about too much until somebody asks you,” he explains. “Then you think, ‘yeah, that would be awesome.’ Obviously

“Ninety-nine per cent of players wait for feedback from you, whereas Jay will go through a drill and then explain what it felt like for him.” — Derek Popke it was an exciting summer but it was different and I totally knew that coming in. Still, you never really fully appreciate or understand it until you’re there and so it was a learning experience.” Under the constant scrutiny the Canuck must endure, Garrison scored eight goals and 16 points in 47 games as a Canuck last season. He had his ups and downs, but feels he learned a lot and is looking forward to the 2013-14 season under new head coach John Tortorella. “The main goal is to win, and sometimes a change is good,” he says. “I think it will be positive. (Tortorella) brings a lot of energy, a lot of experience and a different set of dynamics. We’re excited.” Though ice hockey was his main sport growing up in White Rock, Garrison also participated in such activities as rugby, basketball and

roller hockey. “I think it’s good as a kid to play different sports,” he says. “For me it was about having fun and being with my friends while also obviously learning. My parents were always very good and offered positive encouragement. I think every parent wants their kids to do better, but I think it’s important to allow them to be (themselves). I played because I was having fun. I was never mentally exhausted.” Popke says every young player and their parents can learn from Garrison’s journey. “There’s so much pressure to play at the highest level growing up, but it doesn’t have anything to do with making the NHL,” he says. “Hard work is part of a skillset. You can teach kids to skate, stickhandle and score, but it’s also important—and a challenge—to teach them how to work hard.” Garrison clearly loves being a member of the Canucks and even before his debut last season was already embracing the opportunity to represent the team at numerous community events. And he never passes up an autograph request. It’s these qualities that make him a consummate pro and why he’s quickly become a ‘hometown’ favourite.

Best in the West here U18 boys’ and girls’ softball finals underway at London fields by Don Fennell Sports Editor The very best in softball is centre stage this week at Richmond’s London Park fields. The Richmond boys’ and girls’ softball associations are co-hosting the 2013 Western Canadian B championships through Sunday. Both host teams are seeded second among the B.C. entries, which also includes Cordova Bay Blackout and South Delta Invaders (girls) and Nanaimo Breakers (boys). Alberta is also represented by two girls’ and one boy’s team, while Saskatchewan is fielding two girls’ and two boys’ teams and Manitoba a single girls’ team. Although they’re entered as BC2, the Richmond Mariners are the provincial champions–an honour they earned by blanking Nanaimo 12-0 in the 2013 final played July 22 at Merrell Fields. Coach Marshall Shields believes his team can add the Western Candian title (they were 5-1 a year ago and finished third behind Saskatoon and Manitoba) if they stay focused. “This is probably the strongest team we’ve fielded in many seasons. We’re strong everywhere, but we’ll have to avoid being overconfident.” The Richmond Islanders girls’ team (7-5 and seventh in the Lower Mainland league this season) were hampered by early-season injuries but could be poised to be a surprise team at the Westerns. Upcoming games for the Mariners are Friday versus Saskatchewan 1 (Ochapowace Thunder) at 10 a.m. and Saskatoon Selects at 2 p.m. and Saturday versus Cordova Bay at 9 a.m. The Isles play Alberta’s Irma Tigers Friday at 10 a.m. and the Invaders at 2 p.m. and Saturday at 9 a.m. versus Cordova Bay and Strathmore (Alberta) at 11 a.m. The playoffs begin at 3 p.m. Saturday, with the finals Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skaters turn up tempo for season Glacier Falls Summer Classic in Los Angeles provides kickstart for 13 Connaught athletes by Don Fennell Sports Editor

Don Fennell photos Keegan Murphy, director of programming for the Connaught Skating Club, offers some advice to one of his young proteges during a Wednesday afternoon practice session at the Richmond Ice Centre.

They are on the ice, making final adjustments in preparation for the Super Series BC SummerSkate to be held at Canlan Ice Sports Burnaby 8 Rinks in just over a week. Listening attentively to their coaches’ advice and encouragement, Connaught skaters figure to do well at the final preparation for the 2013-14 competitive season. Many have already benefitted from skating through the summer, training alongside athletes from elsewhere in the world whose presence has further inspired the locals. Thirteen Connaught skaters also had the unique opportunity and privilege of competing at the prestigious Glacier Falls Summer Classic in Los Angeles two weeks ago, matched up against some of the top talent in the U.S. In fact, Connaught director of programming Keegan Murphy says it’s the most challenging

environment south of the 49th parallel. “The sheer population of the area demands that to succeed you have to stand out,” he explains. “So it was a really good experience for our skaters, and a chance for them to use their elements, jumps and spins.” For Shawn Cuevas, it was particularly rewarding as he placed eighth in the junior men’s competition. Newcomer Garrett Gosselin, who has honed much of his skating skills in Saskatchewan, also enjoyed a strong debut as a member of the Connaught Skating Club by placing 10th in the senior men’s division. And Larkyn Austman was a finalist in the junior ladies’ division. Mitchell Gordon, the current Canadian junior men’s champion, was unable to participate in the competition after suffering a minor injury a day before the team was scheduled to depart. The SummerSkate goes Aug. 18 to 21 in Burnaby.

Alumni time

Maple Ridge goalie Connor David helped to shut down the Richmond Roadrunners in the final of the BC Intermediate A Lacrosse League playoff final Monday.

Richmond nets silver

Don Fennell photo Fresh off a surprising semifinal appearance at last weekend’s provincial Midget AAA baseball championships, the 2013 Richmond City Chuckers will play host to Richmond alumni this Saturday at 11 a.m. at Latrace Field in Minoru Park. Among the alumni committed to play in the 10th anniversary alumni game are 2011-12 pitcher Niwad Niayz, 2007-08 outfielder Jai Sangara, 2007-09 catcher Dave Clarke, 2004 shortstop Rhys Verde Rios, and 2005 pitcher Matt Winograd.

The Richmond Roadrunners secured silver medals at the provincial Intermediate A lacrosse championship Monday at Maple Ridge’s Planet Ice Rink. Tyler Vogrig scored three goals and Tavin Grant, Braeden Jensen and Wyatt Kinna added one each in a 10-6 finalgame loss to the host Maple Ridge team.

Jensen and Vogrig also had two assists for Richmond, along with Joshua McLaughlin. Richmond simply wasn’t able to score as many goals as they wanted or needed against Connor David, the No. 1 goalie in the league, in the second period, which set the team back and enabled Maple Ridge to build a 9-4 lead.

Joshua Stuart of the Richmond Gymnastics Association represented Canada at the recent World University Games in Kazan, Russia.

Richmond’s Joshua Stuart had himself a pretty successful summer, earning the honour of being the top all around athlete on the Canadian gymnastics team at the recent World University Games in Kazan, Russia. Building on that success, which included a 42nd place finish individually —only eight spots shy of qualifying for the finals—and helping Canada place 17th as a team will be a challenge. But that’s exactly what the 18 year old

Sales still strong at Larco’s Morgan Crossing By Kerry Vital

Morgan Crossing is an amazing pedestrian-friendly village that you don’t often see in the Lower Mainland. With tons of fantastic stores, spacious homes located right in the heart of the village and almost any amenity you can think of within walking distance, it comes as no surprise that there is only a limited number of condominium suites left. “We still have a great selection available, but sales will

be wrapping up soon,” says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies. “The response has been tremendous.” Built by Larco Investments, Morgan Crossing is wellknown as a gathering place for residents from all over Metro Vancouver. Buyers from nearly every city in the region have been looking to purchase one of the homes there. The village has shopping, dining, community events and amenities right outside your front door, including Winners, Town Shoes, Everything Wine and Thrifty Foods. You’ll also be

able to fit in a workout at the Steve Nash Sports Club. “People fall in love with the village,” Woolley says. “It’s what sets Morgan Crossing apart.” Homes at Morgan Crossing start at $275,900 including GST and transition taxes for a two-bedroom suite. For more information, visit www.morgancrossing.ca or call 604-5821336. The presentation centre is open daily except Fridays between noon and 5 p.m.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Submitted photos

Intracorp’s River Park Place will soon join Richmond’s Oval Village neighbourhood, above, where buyers can take advantage of all the amazing amenities the neighbourhood has to offer, including leisure and recreation, shopping and dining. Among the features you’ll find in your new home are stainless-steel appliances and chic and modern cabinetry, above right.

The new luxury at River Park Place By Kerry Vital

Richmond’s Oval Village is welcoming sophisticated luxury to the neighbourhood with Intracorp’s River Park Place. The new condominium and townhome development is already garnering buzz. “These homes stand out from the crowd,” says Intracorp’s Director of Sales Barrett Sprowson. “The response so far has been

really positive.” The project will encompass three buildings and over 500 homes. Over 30 homes were sold last month. The one-, two- and three-bedroom homes are spacious and inviting, with floorplans ranging from 465 to over 2,000 square feet. “These floorplans make sense to a wide range of people,” says Sprowson, adding that buyers so far have included downsizers and young couples looking to move away from renting or their starter home. “These homes are really efficient,” Sprowson says. “There’s no wasted space.” Some of the features you’ll find in your new home include stainless-steel appliances, solid engineered quartz countertops and a full-height marble mosaic backsplash in the kitchen. The modern kitchen cabinetry includes high-gloss solid white lacquer upper

cabinets and horizontal-grain real wood veneer lower cabinets, all built in Canada. The soaker tub in the bathroom is made for spa-like relaxation, complemented by the natural stone porcelain tile flooring, solid marble countertops and European frameless glass shower enclosure. You’ll find laminate flooring throughout the main living areas, with low-profile soft touch broadloom carpeting in the bedrooms. When you’re in the mood for some time outdoors, you’ll love the expansive outdoor patio or balcony in your new home. The amenities are some of the most amazing things about River Park Place. Among them you’ll find a yoga mezzanine, fully equipped fitness centre, dog-wash station, media room and training court with space to play basketball or badminton. “These are little things that make sense,”

Sprowson says. “We picked up the concept of a whole home, taken all of those things you’re looking for and put them into some form of amenity at River Park Place. You don’t expect to get that in a condo.” For the next several week, River Park Place will be holding weekend events that celebrate all those amenities. The next one, a three-onthree basketball scrimmage, will take place on Aug. 10 at the River Park Place sales centre. “Intracorp is fielding a team,” Sprowson laughs. “The old guys are going to get schooled!” There will be a grilling exhibition on Aug. 17 and daylight yoga on Aug. 24. The Oval Village neighbourhood has been rapidly growing since the end of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, and River Park Place is perfectly situated to take advantage of everything the neighbourhood has to offer. “Our buyers are really starting to appreciate the evolution of the area,” Sprowson says. “This is the number-one neighbourhood in Richmond.” Buyers will have access to transit via the Canada Line just minutes away, as well as the Vancouver International Airport, the Richmond dyke trails and all of the shopping, dining and leisure activities in the area. T&T Supermarket will open its doors nearby, as well as medical, dental and banking services. Homes at River Park Place start at $229,900. For more information, visit www. intracorp.ca/riverparkplace, call 604282-7838 or visit the sales centre at 7100 Elmbridge Way, open every day except Fridays between noon and 5 p.m.

May 16, 1953 - July 31, 2013 Born May 16th, 1953, passed into God’s presence July 31, 2013. Dan is survived by his loving wife, Helen, and 2 sons Micah and Daniel; 4 siblings: Judy(Bailie) MacKenzie, Joanie Petrie, Bev(Ian) McLean, Ron Gardener; and 9 nieces and nephews. At age 15 Dan was the youngest journeyman auto refinisher in BC. In his early 20’s Dan met Corrie Ten Boom who trained and hired him as a tour guide for “The Hiding Place.� Dan also studied English and Philosophy at UBC. Recently Dan was the owner/operator of Auto Art Collision; developed the live radio program “Automotive Intelligence;� loved hiking, traveling, karate, rock hounding and time with family and friends. Memorial Service will be at New Life Christian Centre, 2800 Mtn Hwy, N. Van. BC on August 11 at 2 P.M.

CHRISTENSEN, Betty Ann Betty passed away peacefully at home on August 5, 2013 at the age of 68. Betty lived in Richmond for 45 of her years and shared many exciting adventures with her family. From dogsledding in the Arctic, to hiking the Chilkoot Trail, to presenting to Richmond city council about the beauty of dandelions, Betty was always up for a challenge. Unfortunately, the challenge of her life came with a cancer diagnosis and her strength, courage and determination will remain in the hearts of her husband of 48 years Ken, her son Douglas, her daughter Wendy, her three grandchildren, and her family and friends. We are most grateful to the support of Richmond’s palliative home care in her final days.

Timothy Weaver-Graves is acting in West Side Story in London, England this summer in a student production. Timothy, now 17, was one of 440 musical theatre students from around the world who sent a video audition to Stagecoach Theatre Arts in the U.K. He earned one of the 770 places in the cast along with two other students from the Lower Mainland. The run of four professionally produced performances will be August 15 –17 at the Leatherhead Theatre. “It’s really cool to be working with professional choreographers, directors, costumers and a live orchestra, “ says Timothy from his dorm room at St. Mary’s University in Twickenham. Since 2008, he has been part of the Stagecoach Theatre Arts program in East Vancouver.
