lines, Gene Figueroa was soon hooked. Figueroa, 20, is a paddler for Ares, one of 60 dragon boat teams competing in the Steveston Dragon Boat Festival Saturday. The festival is expected to draw hundreds of spectators and 1,600 paddlers, and for Figueroa and many others, the appeal lies in teamwork. “That’s really what draws me in. I like paddling with the team. (As) a group of people we just click and work together for a common goal,” said Figueroa, who practises the

A $150-million development proposed for north Richmond could become an international hub for education, boasting a potential to accommodate 600 foreign students, along with language schools, colleges and universities. Dubbed Global Education City, the development would occupy a site on the west side of No. 3 Road, between Bridgeport Road and Sea Island Way, near River Rock Casino Resort. Wensley Architecture Ltd. has submitted plans to city hall for a nine-storey office and campus building fronting Sea Island Way, a 15-storey dormitory building at No. 3 Road, and a six-level parkade and amenity building fronting Bridgeport Road, according to the city. Planning staff are reviewing the proposal, which has yet to be considered by city council. An online promotional video sells the project as “Canada’s premium education super centre” with space for children’s education centres, language schools, career and technical colleges and universities, along with student residences. It suggests a completion date of spring 2016. See Page 3

Aurora to roar overhead for Musical Ride 32 horses/riders will perform cavalry drills set to music at RCMP event on Aug. 28 by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The distinctive overhead roar of an Aurora long-range military patrol plane—flying low and slow over Twin Oaks equestrian facility— will mark the arrival of the RCMP’s Musical Ride in Richmond next week. RCMP Sgt. Cam Kowalski said organizers wanted to make the first-ever local performance of the team of 32 horses and riders in Richmond truly special. So unlike other B.C. performances, what locals will see is a truly one-of-a-kind treat, courtesy the Royal Canadian Air Force. The Wednesday, Aug. 28 performance features a team of horses and riders performing cavalry drills choreographed to music at the equestrian facility south of Steveston Highway, at 13671 No. 3 Rd. The Steveston Rotary Club is the presenting sponsor for the event, which runs from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Musical Ride is a rich Canadian tradition that dates back 137 years. Members of Musical Ride are all police officers who have at least two years experience in active police work before volunteering for duty with the team. According to the RCMP’s website (rcmp-grc. gc.ca), it was inevitable that traditional cavalry drill movements would be incorporated into the performance as the original Mounted Police had British military backgrounds. While legend has it that the first Musical Ride was performed in 1876, the first officially recorded Musical Ride was performed in Regina in 1887, and was for the first time put on public display in 1901.

M. Cpl. Danielle Bernier photo A CP-140 Aurora long-range patrol aircraft, like this one, will fly slow and very low over Richmond to mark the arrival of the RCMP’s Musical Ride on Wednesday, Aug. 28.

Most of today’s members were non-riders prior to taking equestrian training with the RCMP, and only remain with Musical Ride for three years. Between 2,000 and 3,000 people are expected to take in the spectacle, with bleachers set up to accommodate between 800 and 1,000 people. The field to the south of Twin Oaks has been acquired for parking for all vehicles. Locals are invited to bring their blankets and

beach chairs and sit around the arena wherever they’d like. Prior to the big performance, there will be a police dog demonstration, and the Steveston Taiko Drummers will be showing their skills. There will be five food trucks on site, the RCMP’s helicopter is scheduled to be there, along with other local specialty units including the emergency response team, and the marine unit.

Tickets—$5 for children ages six to 11, and $10 for anyone 12 or older, free for children five or younger—can also be obtained online at tinyurl.com/MusicalRideRichmond Ticket sales will be capped at 3,500. Tickets can also be bought in person with cash at the Gulf & Fraser credit unions in Richmond, including the Richmond Centre Branch, at 7971 Westminster Hwy., and the West Richmond branch, at 120-8900 No. 1 Road.

Crystal meth lab had explosive potential Neighbourhood fortunate fire was spotted before blaze reached toxic chemicals by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The timing of a Tuesday night fire that led to Richmond FireRescue discovering an active, large-scale, crystal meth lab in a rental house next to Henry Anderson Elementary School, might have been a blessing in disguise. Had the blaze happened in the middle of the night as the neighbourhood slept, there could have been an explosive and possibly deadly outcome instead. But as fate would have it, residents of the central Richmond neighbourhood called 911 as soon as they spotted smoke billowing from an open window, the chimney, and the edges of the garage door some time around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Richmond Fire-Rescue responded to 9440 Alberta Rd. and extinguished the blaze before it swept through the

Martin van den Hemel photo Investigators from the RCMP’s clandestine drug team confirmed Wednesday the presence of a crystal meth lab inside this house at 9440 Alberta Rd.

two-storey home, that according to one neighbour was sold about a year ago and was being rented out. Pabby Nijjer has been living in the neighbourhood for 15 years, and was shocked to learn her neighbour was storing large quantities of volatile chemical precursors for the manufacture of crystal methamphetamine. On the morning of the fire, there must have been somebody in the home as the garbage had been brought to the curb, she said. She described occasionally seeing a skinny Asian man in

his 50s and wearing glasses living in the home, and driving a modest car. “I never thought that something will happen next to me. Very scary.” An extensive system of circular ventilation pipes reaching through the garage ceiling, numerous oil-drum sized blue plastic containers, and a long list of chemical precursors were found by Richmond RCMP’s clandestine drug lab team. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said police found a significant amount of finished crystal meth inside the

house, and signs that the occupants left quickly, judging from the items that were left behind. Investigators have yet to track down any suspects, but have determined that the occupants were “fairly new renters,” Ashton said. The fact the house was directly beside an elementary school was disturbing, she said, posing a serious threat from both the perspective of an explosive hazard, as well as the ventilation of toxic chemicals into the air. “We’re right next to an elementary school and to a children’s daycare...Had there not been a fire, they could have continued to be operating while school was in session.” Classes are out for summer at Anderson Elementary, which is separated from the house by a large hedge that’s perhaps four-metres high and runs the entire eastern length of the north-facing house. As of Thursday afternoon, no arrests had been made, but the police investigation is continuing, with plenty of information in the house for investigators to search through for leads. Anyone with information about the house’s occupants is asked to call the Richmond RCMP at 604278-1212, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Rendering courtesy of joyce-international.com The proposed Global Education City would become ‘Canada’s premium education super centre,’ according to proponents.

Project billed as the first of its kind From Page 1 Realtor Joyce Soo is helping market the project. She said it’s “the first of its kind in North America,” adding it would serve as headquarters for CIBT Education Group. The firm, whose current international head office is in Vancouver, owns and operates a network of private education institutions. CEO Toby Chu didn’t return a call, but among objectives listed on the company’s website is to deliver western instruction “to the rapidly growing emerging Asian market” through video conferencing. Soo’s website, advertising a pre-sale of rentable units—office space and 500-square-foot student residences—said the project responds to growing demand. “The demand for Canadian education for foreign students is growing yet accommodation in the Vancouver area is in limited supply. The market is expected to get even tighter and more student housing is needed.”

along Lansdowne Road and extending toward the Richmond Olympic Oval. “That park is meant to be for festivals, for cultural events, for open-air art functions and things like that. So here’s the school of design right near the new central park. So we see

that western facade that faces the park as really critical. It needs to be a beautiful building.” The design school became a reality thanks to a $12-million gift from Shannon and Chip Wilson, a donation that was matched by both the province of B.C. and Kwantlen.

The new design school, over the next three years, promises to become a hub for fashion and design in Metro Vancouver. It will offer innovative education in fashion, interior and product design, and graphic design and marketing.

Traffic will be reduced to single-lane and there may be temporary lane closures. Delays may occur. The use of an alternate route is strongly encouraged. This work is weather dependent and dates are subject to change without notice.

The public was treated Tuesday to a first-look at renderings of the $36 million Chip and Shannon Wilson School of Design, to be built over the course of the next three years at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Architect John Wall, from PUBLIC Architecture and Communication of Vancouver, who is part of the design team selected for the architectural and interior design, said the inspiration came from the client’s desire to merge five different design disciplines into one space. “By its very nature, it needs to be interdisciplinary, it needs to be a flexible space. You want to get all the students working together and thinking together, so you get the interior designers talking to the fashion designers, talking to the product designers because they can actually learn a lot about design from each other,” Wall said during Tuesday's preview attended by Chip and Shannon Wilson, founders of apparel company Lululemon Athletica. “So it’s an idea of somewhat breaking down the silos. People just thinking about what good design is, in a holistic way. So our approach to the building is along the same lines.” The building will serve as more than just a home for aspiring designers; the building itself is a teaching tool, providing a less on good architecture with examples of its structural/mechanical/ electrical systems, Wall said. One of the primary drivers of the building is sustainability, and it has been designed to provide an abundance of natural light and natural ventilation and made with durable materials, he said. “It's not a 20-year building. Hopefully it's a 200-year building...It will be a part of Richmond’s cultural fabric for a long time.” Over the next couple of decades, Wall said this area of Richmond will transform, with the western facade of this design school almost serving as the terminus for a 10-metre wide linear park currently in the planning stages by the City of Richmond for

Dragon boaters to hit the Fraser From Page 1 Each boat is filled with a team of paddlers, a drummer and a cox who steers. Working in unison, the paddlers propel the boat with the aim of completing the course in the least amount of time. Boats are composed of novice racers to experienced paddlers who come together for a day of fun and fitness. “People don’t realize how much it takes to move a dragon boat. So it’s very good for your core and your upper body, and even your legs,” said Phelps. Participants are drawn to the social activity as a commitment to sport for life, added Phelps, whose been involved in the sport for 23 years. “You can do it as a kid, you can do it as an adult, and you don’t have to start off being particularly co-ordinated or athletic,” she said. “It’s a team sport, so no matter what, nobody gets left behind.” David Chinn, a member of the organizing committee, said the sport attracts a broad spectrum of participants who become part of a “paddling community.” “The sport itself is really quite accessible. There are a lot of school teams, there are blind paddlers. Anybody who can get into a boat can really do it.” For spectators, spying the paddlers Saturday will be easy. The Fraser River course offers lots of great viewing locations along the boardwalk east of No. 1 Road. Starting at 7 a.m., Lions club members will be serving up breakfast for $5.

Garlic Festival goes Sunday at Terra Nova by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

Dragons be here Paddle your way to victory or have fun cheering them on as the dragon boats rip up the river in Steveston. Steveston Dragon Boat Festival August 24 Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site

Richmondites really love their garlic, rain or shine, judging from last year’s strong turnout at the annual Garlic Festival at The Sharing Farm in West Richmond. And though clouds are in the forecast for this Sunday, there’s no expectation of precipitation according to Environment Canada, and organizers are hoping to hit between 2,500 and 3,000 visitors this weekend. The 5th annual Garlic Festival promises to be a treat for the entire family on Sunday, Aug. 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Terra Nova Rural Park, 2631 Westminster Hwy. Admission is free, but the western stretch of Westminster Highway will be shut down to traffic, meaning attendees will need to either park at Spul’u’kwuks Elementary and take the short stroll over, or park at the City of Richmond’s worksyard on Lynas Lane, where they can take a free shuttle bus that runs every 20 minutes or so. “This is a great family event so mark your calendar and plan to spend a few

hours,” organizers said on The Sharing Farm’s website at www.sharingfarm.ca Musical entertainment is courtesy Sybaritic String Band and Bhredren, there will be a cooking demonstration. Earnest Ice Cream will be serving up garlic or salted caramel ice cream, and there will be kids entertainment too. The garlic festival is the single largest fundraiser for The Sharing Farm. Also up for sale are raffle tickets for door prizes donated by generous local merchants. Donations will also be gladly accepted for the new operations centre for the farm, which is nearly halfway to its goal of raising $170,000 for the project. Having raised more than $75,000 in cash and in-kind donations, the effort is just $30,000 short of being able to complete the garage to the lock-up stage. Anyone wishing to make a donation can visit tinyurl.com/TheSharingFarm The Garlic Festival is expected to generate about $15,000, which goes toward the annual operations at the farm. The land has been provided by the City of Richmond, which also supplies the water and other assistance.

GUEST EDITORIAL: It’s in the cards Ignore for a minute that TransLink may just be the nearest punching bag for all that’s wrong in the world, including transit. TransLink is about to launch its biggest innovation — the new Compass card to replace cash fares and the Faresaver system — and, come on, can’t we give this muchmaligned transportation authority some time to get it right? The $180-million electronic ticketing system got dumped all over last week because it turns out bus users who pay with cash fares will have to pay a second time to get on SkyTrain. It’s too costly to retrofit buses with terminals allowing cash purchases of a single Compass ticket that will work on the whole transit system. This could place a financial hardship on about 6,000 people a day who start their trip on buses and don’t want to pay a $6 deposit for a Compass Card. But here’s the thing: If those riders who prefer cash fares could be convinced

Evan Seal file photo TransLink says fare boxes on buses won’t be able to issue paper tickets to cash-paying passengers that are compatible with the SkyTrain faregates.

to get a Compass card, the new system would be more efficient and the money paid to get the system running will be a good investment. What’s more, an incentive, similar to discounts provided by TReO to win over drivers on the new

Port Mann Bridge, will get more early adopters and smooth the transition. Right now, people are anxious; they don’t understand how the Compass card will work and they worry about being inconvenienced. TreO took care of that, too,

by making it easy for people to sign up online. We don’t yet know what the fares will be and here, too, TransLink must be on top of its game, ensuring that it’s no more expensive to ride transit with Compass than with the old system.

The fact is, the Compass card is coming. It’s being tested in a few weeks and will roll out gradually next year. It will end fare abuse because it works in tandem with turnstiles, and if efficiently introduced, will match world-class systems

used elsewhere, such as in London, where the Oyster card is ubiquitous. But a clear, concise and multi-platform public relations plan, along with discounts, will be required to ensure a relatively seamless transition. —Tri-City News

Editor: I have the luxury of day caring my very active and sometimes hot tempered four year old granddaughter. A cute little curly haired, blond angel with more time-outs than the meanest hockey player in the whole universe. From giggles, hugs and kisses while sitting in my lap to BOOM!....standing alone in the bathroom thinking about what wrong she had done in less time than it takes to warm up “Beefaroni.” The language she learns in pre-school! After one such time-out, and a hug with a “I still love you very much” she told me of all the wishes that she would like if Santa came to her house. “Grandpa you know what?” ( this is how she starts every sentence,or, it’s with a Grandpa look at this!) “W H A T ?” I ask with the full knowledge that this is going to be an indefinite period of time

that’s filled the weirdest collection of rambling unconnected thoughts that all 4 year olds have wired on chocolate (her mom’s coming home in five minutes and this is how I get back at her for being a teenager). “Grandpa you know what?” (again) “W H A T !” “Look at this!” “Charlotte” (in my best cautionary tone, relating that grandpas had 10 hours of ‘you know whats?’ and ‘look at this!’ already today) “I wish you and everybody else wouldn’t get mad at me. And I wish I liked broccoli and going to bed when it’s still light outside. And my biggest best wish is, I wish I use to have a unicorn! Purple! That could fly so fast that.......” “I wish I use to have a unicorn?” I interrupted ( oh sure I wanted to tell her everybody wasn’t mad at her, broccoli was good for her and how in the summer months the

sun barely sets. But ‘I wish I use to have a unicorn!’) “A purple flying unicorn? And you’ve already given up on the idea of ever owning one? What quashed that dream?” “GRANDPA, unicorns aren’t real! But they use to be...” “Mommy’s here!” came the happy sing-song jingle coming up the stairs. Coat, boots, back-pack, tattered old blankie and two videos that shorten the day were all collected. With a hurried ‘We’ll see you tomorrow’ all the noise, life and love exited the house. In its place the tick of the old battery clock over the fireplace and a small dog breathing a lot easier. “I wish I use to have a unicorn,” kept going over and over in my mind. At 4 years old, a dream has already died. The belief in, the hope of and the knowledge there never will be, has already come, been and gone from

my granddaughters life. For just a blink of an eye she could of had a unicorn. Purple and able to fly across that new field of dreams she had just started to cultivate. Virgin ground without the weeds of reality, that ruin many crops of our dreams. But at four years old the weeds have claimed the hope of a small girl, and her wish of ever owning a unicorn. The wishes and hopes and dreams of our children are very special. They are the lucky few that can do, be, hope and try to have anything they want. Nurture their field of dreams. Protect it. All to quick someone wants to enter that special area of their imagination and tell them they can’t grow that in their environment. The jealous older multitudes that know better, kill young plants in early fields. Watch what your children watch, who they play and talk with. Be

mindful of your conversation when they are in the room, and pick up your magazines. Young dreamers have big eyes and ears. I sometimes wish our kids could grow up like most of us did, without the computer. Childhood mysteries that dad and mom would answer at an appropriate date are now solved over at Billy’s house when his mom goes to the mall. I rather enjoyed my childhood knowledge changing from week to week and friend to friend about the opposite sex. It all depended on which friend had the older brother. Dreams were replanted and changed daily. Man I had a lot of wishes in those years. “I wish I use to have a unicorn.” I wish she still wished she wanted to have a unicorn. Bob Niles Richmond

Editor: Richmond Chinese Community Society must be commended for putting on the 11th annual Seniors Lunch Party on Saturday, Aug. 17 at Continental Seafood Restaurant. The theme of the party attended by close to 500 people was aptly named: “A Long and Healthy Life.” The food was delicious and the entertainment was superb. The party was made even more enjoyable by complimentary gifts, goody bags and lucky draws. The RCCS had two major objectives for this lunch: to assist Chinese Canadians to integrate into the mainstream and to introduce Chinese culture to the mainstream society. These are both noble and timely objectives. The audience reflected people of different backgrounds and cultures. In my opinion, RCCS was very successful in achieving both of these objectives. Thanks RCCS for putting on such a great lunch designed to build bridges between different cultures and promoting intercultural harmony. Balwant Sanghera Richmond

CORNER OF BLUNDELL AND SIDAWAY (look for the red barn) RICHMOND, BC

Editor: Lately there have been calls for the abolition of the Canadian Senate. I think that would be a mistake, but clearly the Senate needs fixing. The Senate serves a purpose. It reviews policy issues outside of partisan elected politics. It can check the unfettered power of the prime minister. It is supposed to speak for regional interests, not those of the prime minister. Each province has a fixed number of senators. Under the Constitution, they are appointed by the governor general (prime minister). Amending the Constitution is effectively impossible. A “Triple E Senate” (equal, elected, effective) proposal was defeated with the 1992 Charlottetown Accord Referendum, perhaps because that accord attempted too many other things. But the provinces will never “give up” what they have, without

a “deal” back. In B.C., that would require a referendum, which would likely defeat any side “deals”. Senate elections would not work, without reallocation of the numbers, because the underrepresented provinces (B.C. and Alberta) would be further underrepresented as the elected senators, rightfully, exercised their elected powers. So here is a suggestion. The prime minister could agree that he would only appoint senators from names submitted by the provinces. Those senators would truly be loyal to their home provinces and the Senate would cease to be a home for the prime minister’s loyalists. This can be done on the commitment of the prime minister alone. If he is serious about reform, he just has to do it! Ian MacLeod Richmond

Reckless drivers to need to slow down Editor: On Saturday, Aug. 3, I was preparing myself to ride my three-wheel bike into the Steveston village. I was praying for protection and I sensed that I should be very careful. So much so, that I changed the outfit I was wearing and wore a long sleeved blouse, plus my jacket. I rode carefully and then parked my bike in the little park beside the post office. A group of people had gathered and there was music, plus sales going on. I wanted to get to the bank, so walked to the crosswalk from the post office across Moncton to get to the Royal Bank. I stepped forward very slowly and when I was almost half way a car on my right slowed and stopped. I waved to say "thank you." When I turned my head to the left a black car was hurtling towards me and I felt I was going underneath the hood. In shock I fell down on the

hard cement and landed on my left elbow weeping. The car stopped, but the people yelled for him to get out. The two people who enfolded me took me to their bench, while an eye witness brought them the driver's license. They asked if I was cold and I responded "I'm freezing." They explained that I was in shock and also filled out a form for the police. I was overcome with pain, both physical and emotional and crying seemed to help. There were many eye witnesses, but I was so comforted by their kindness. A woman, Gabriele, said she would make sure my bike was brought home. Ron Hyde, a friend, said to call when I was ready to go home. He picked up a nurse who was a neighbour and got me home. My husband was out so they stayed with me and gave me comforting tea. It took all the strength of my 80 years to try to stay calm and then

Grade 1 - 12

my husband came. He told me afterwards that I had slept through two days and he was concerned and called our children, then an ambulance. The hospital kindly gave me something to calm me and x-rayed me. They were no bones broken, but my elbow was badly bruised and my back is still very sore and bruised. Even as I write this, I had to get some calming tea. Black cars still bring back that dreadful dream. People in Steveston say that cars coming through alley ways drive recklessly. Said one man, “No body cares for anyone else these days." What a very sad commentary we have about a society that speeds, caring less about the elderly, children, dogs, or anyone else, except themselves. We really do need police protection on our streets, especially Steveston! Esther McIlveen Richmond

‘So we nodded our heads and stayed silent’ From Page 11 We even had the pathetic spectacle of then-Richmond MP Raymond Chan’s knee-jerk reaction to jump on the band wagon and demand Allen be fired from CKNW. Richmond residents sent Chan to Ottawa to uphold our constitution, not help destroy it. We Canadians have contributed to these situations by our famed reserve and politeness and horror at the thought we could be racists, so we nodded our

heads and stayed silent. Well not any more, we have started to push back and more Canadians are saying “enough is enough” we will not remain silent any longer.

Doug Clifford (second from right) is a member of the original rhythm section of CCR.

‘I haven’t grown up yet’ Legendary drummer Doug Clifford talks about CCR, Woodstock and the best advice he’s received by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Doug “Cosmo” Clifford put the groove in some of the most recognizable songs from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Today he’s still on stage behind the drum set, entertaining fans who include many born after the chart-topping music. Clifford is one of the original members of Creedence Clearwater Revival, a popular American rock band that enjoyed several years of success before splitting up in 1972. Since 1995 he’s been a key member of Creedence Clearwater Revisited, a band he formed with original bassist Stu Cook—and without singer John Fogerty. A simmering feud with Fogerty has kept a full reunion well out of reach, but Clifford and Cook continue to perform the band’s many original hits with other players. The pair originally planned to only play private parties, but with demand for songs like “Proud Mary,” “Lodi,” “Down on the Corner,” Fortunate Son” and “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” Creedence Clearwater Revisited is now performing nearly 100 concerts each year. On Friday, Sept. 6, the band will play a largely sold out show at River Rock Show Theatre. Tickets start at $64.50, and are available through ticketmaster. ca or 1-855-985-5000. 1. How much fun are you having with Creedence Clearwater Revisited? If I were having any more fun I would have to stick a sharp stick in my eye. 2. Will there ever be a reunion with John Fogerty? No.

3. What’s the origin of ‘Cosmo’? It is a nickname that was bestowed on me in college based on my nature studies. 4. How many shows are you doing now—and what do you think of the pace? 75 a year, and the pace depends upon the length of time out per run, meaning how many back-to-back shows. 5. What’s your favourite song to play? “Born On The Bayou.” It’s

with...

with... based on a simple beat and a very powerful song. 6. What’s the best percussion innovation? I would have to say V drums, electronic drums that an actual drummer plays. You can create any drum sound in the world and it’s played by the drummer, not a drum machine. 7. Worst percussion innovation?  The drum machine. 8. What did you want to be when you grew up? First of all, I haven’t grown up yet and I plan to keep it that way. 9. What was the first instrument you played? The drums—it was a natural fit. 10. To whom do you owe your success? I would say my bandmates—we were a tight unit.  We overcame every obstacle but success. Once we reached the top, it was unchartered territory. It’s easy to be a unit when you’re starving. 11. What’s the best advice you received as a young musician?  Stay

true to what you like. That’s what we did in the band. We didn’t play things that were faddish, we stuck with the genre of roots American music. Don’t play something you’re not comfortable with because you think it will bring you success. It won’t and it will bring you frustration. 12. What was your favourite band growing up? There were several.  Elvis as a solo artist, Little Richard and his band who were great.  The core of studio musicians from New Orleans, they backed up any different artist. 13. What drives you to continue in music? It’s in the blood.  14. Most unusual venue you’ve played? Woodstock was weird in a good way. It will never happen again. 15. Most embarrassing moment on stage? Saying hello to the wrong city. I said hello Felton and the town was Ashton. 16. What bands/musicians do you admire today? I love Bruno Mars, think he’s spectacular. I like a lot of the country guys. I love Rascal Flatts, their singing style is very gospel and I like his delivery. I like Keith Urban, straight forward and simple. Bruno really has a unique style and I appreciate him. 17. How do you stay in shape? I work out and eat healthfully. I do cardio and weights, stretching, meditation. 18. Favourite post-concert snack? Organic peanut butter and banana on one piece of whole grain bread. 19. What’s your favourite meal to cook?  I love to cook fresh sockeye salmon on the grill with olive oil, garlic and lemon. 20. What’s something few people know about you? Everything I don’t want them to know.

Corolla S with moonroof shown

The young performers of Showstoppers will perform next week with one of the world’s bestselling bands of all time. On Tuesday, Aug. 27, the GLEE group formed 13 years ago by Richmond lawyer Perry Ehrlich, will be on stage with Foreigner at the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver. The 8:30 p.m. concert is part of the fair’s free Summer Night Concerts series on the WestJet Concert Stage. The Showstoppers are scheduled to perform with the rock band for its 1984 power ballad “I Want to Know What Love Is.” Foreigner is also famous for hits like “Juke Box Hero,” “Feels Like the First Time” and “Urgent.” At its core is lead guitarist Mick Jones, who founded the group in 1976. In 2002 the original group disbanded, but Jones later put together a new lineup, which has remained unchanged for a decade. Showstoppers, whose members have participated in Ehrlich’s Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! musical theatre summer program, will also put on their own show at 4:30 p.m. at the fair. Ehrlich’s latest crop of students in musical theatre program will also stage a production Aug. 28 and 29 at Vancouver’s Norman Rothstein Theatre. The show is Miss Vancouver, featuring an original script by Ehrlich and over 30 songs from Broadway and movie musicals. Tickets, $15, at 604-257-5111.

Guitarist brings Latin influenced music to town German-born guitarist Ottmar Liebert and his band Luna Negra will be in Richmond Saturday for a concert at River Rock Show Theatre. Liebert has since become one of the most successful instrumental artists, releasing a catalogue of classic recordings. The concert begins at 8 p.m. Tickets, $34.50, available at ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000.

Tips for back to school shopping

G

etting ready to go back to school? A recent report by Ernst and Young says Canadians will spend four per cent more on clothing and supplies this year than last.

But before you dive into buying, check out these back-to-school budget tips from the Better Business Bureau: • Make a shopping list. Even if you don't know the exact school supply list, you should get an idea of school clothing and other school needs. Make a list for each child, but start by "shopping at home" for items that you may already have left over from last year. For some items, it's worth spending a bit more (a high quality backpack will last for years). • Create a budget. Do a quick price search online for the items on your list and add them all up. Be sure to clip coupons, and make note of discount codes and any cash-back or rebate programs. If your goal is to reduce spending, now is the time to decide how much you want to cut. • Set up email alerts at your favourite stores. Monitoring pricing early on is key to finding good deals on quality products. Many sites will

have an informed community of savvy shoppers on their blog or in their forums who willingly share deals, exclusive coupons, rebates and insider information on where and when to find the best prices, popular models and links to helpful resources. These alerts will assure you don't miss out on the hottest, and/or limited, opportunities. • Take advantage of discounts. Many stores offer student and teacher discounts on hot items like laptops and uniforms. Retailers will be trying to make room for fall fashion and the newest models, so there are incredible savings to be had on older items. • Know the true cost of what you are purchasing. You might be moving out for the first time and buying new furniture. If you are buying an item on credit, make sure you are aware of not only the interest rate being charged, but any additional fees and costs associated with purchasing on credit including late payment charges. If you engage in cross-border shopping, factor in the cost of gas, duty taxes, and any other additional costs associated with getting your goods back home.

not always be easy, the following are a few tips for parents hoping to foster healthy eating habits in their children. •Stick to a schedule. Parents should establish a regular eating schedule, for both meals and snacks, so kids learn the importance of not skipping meals. Kids who learn to eat at regular intervals are more likely to continue doing so as they grow older. When kids stick to a meal schedule, they are less likely to overeat and they’re likely to have more energy throughout the day, which should help them stay attentive at school and be more engaged in their extracurricular activities. •Involve kids when choosing the menu. Kids might be more excited about eating healthy when you involve them in choosing the menu. Invite them along on trips to the grocery store and allow them to choose one of their favorite foods for the meal in exchange for eating the healthy fare you have chosen. Parents may end up eating a lot of side dishes of macaroni and cheese, but their youngsters will also end up eating their vegetables. •Plan healthy desserts. Dessert is often con-

Swapping traditional and often less healthy snacks and desserts for fresh fruits is one way to foster healthy eating habits in children.

sidered an unhealthy indulgence, but there’s plenty of nutritious desserts that are so delicious kids likely will not realize they’re eating healthy. A dessert of fresh fruit and a small serving of yogurt can provide the same postmeal refreshment as ice cream or cake, but it does so with much fewer calories and a lot more nutrients and vitamins. What’s more, kids will come to look at dessert as a chance to eat fresh fruits instead of an opportunity to load up on ice cream or other, less healthy alternatives. •Serve healthy portions. Sometimes it’s not just what is on the plate but how much is on the plate that can be healthy

or unhealthy. When doling out portions for the family, create healthy portions so kids are not encouraged to overeat. Kids who grow up eating healthy portions are more likely to continue doing so into adulthood. Overeating is one of the culprits behind being overweight and obese, so kids who learn to control their portions are much less likely to overeat and gain excess weight. •Don’t reward kids with food. Some parents try to reward youngsters with food, allowing kids to indulge in unhealthy fare in acknowledgement of a good report card or something else kids should be proud of. But

using food as a reward is an unhealthy eating habit that can lead to problems down the road as kids become adults responsible for their own eating habits. •Set a positive example. Kids are more likely to eat healthy when mom and dad are healthy eaters. If your first choice at snack time is to reach for a bag of potato chips, then don’t be surprised when your kids opt for chips over healthier fare like a piece of fruit. “Do as I say, not as I do” is a tough sell to youngsters when it comes to their eating habits, so parents should set a positive example for their kids by ensuring their own diets are healthy.

How students can avoid fraud

S

chool is around the corner, and as university and college students are getting settled on campus, fighting fraud may not be their top priority.

However, students are among the most susceptible to identity theft as they juggle many tasks while getting adapted to life away from home. The Better Business Bureau recommends 10 simple steps students can take to protect themselves as the school year begins: 1. Sign up for security alerts on your accounts and have them sent to your mobile phone. This simple safeguard will tell you immediately if changes have been made to any of your accounts. 2. Have sensitive mail sent to your parents' home or a post office box. School mailboxes are not always secure

and are often easily accessible in a dorm or apartment. 3. Store your important documents under lock and key. This includes your Social Insurance Number card, passport and bank and credit card statements. Shred credit card offers and any paper documents that have sensitive financial information rather than just tossing them in a dorm trash can. 4. Never lend your credit or debit card to anyone. Just say no if your friend wants to borrow your card or asks you to co-sign for a loan or financing for items like a TV. 5. Make sure your computer has up-todate antivirus and spyware software. Always install any updates and patches to your computer's operating system or browser software, which help keep your computer safe from any new advances by online identity thieves.

6. Always check your credit or debit card statements closely for any suspicious activity. The sooner you identify any potential fraud, the less you'll suffer in the long run. 7. Check out and verify unfamiliar websites with the BBB. Visit bbb. org and look for the BBB Accredited Business seal along with a company's rating; to see if the company is legitimate. 8. Check your credit report at least once a year. You are entitled to one free report a year from each reporting bureaus: www.transunion.ca and www. equifax.ca. Review them closely for any suspicious activity or inaccuracies. 9. Be selfish with personal information. Social media sites encourage the sharing of information. However, avoid sharing your birth date, address and other information that may be used to help put together

a profile that can be used to steal your identity. Check the privacy settings for your profile and considering hiding your profile unless you approve a friendship/contact request. 10. Avoid rental scams. If you are not staying on campus then you may be searching for an apartment rental. Scammers

often pose as out-oftown landlords that require a deposit on the rental. Once the money is paid, usually through a money transfer, the new tenant discovers there isn't actually an apartment to rent, at all. For more tips, visit www.mbc.bbb.org and for the latest, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Cookbooks for summer sweets

N

othing screams out SUMMER!! quite like ice cream.

And what do you know – it’s not that hard to make, as long as you have an ice cream machine. And even that’s not always necessary. In The Ciao Bella Book of Gelato & Sorbetto by F.W. Pearce and Danilo Zecchin, you get beautifully illustrated recipes for relatively easyto-make ice desserts. It’s clear that gelato is more complicated to make than sorbetto, but the authors provide everything you need to know —from lists of equipment and ingredients to step-bystep instructions. Spice Dreams: Flavored Ice Creams and Other Frozen Treats by Sara Engram and Katie Luber offers a twist on traditional ice cream, with unusual flavours like chile-lemongrass ice cream, almond ice cream with turmeric, cardamom, and cloves, and basil ice cream. The recipes for sorbets and frozen yogurts includes equally off-the-wall flavors like marjoram-mint-coconut sorbet and lemon-allspice frozen yogurt. The authors also include recipes for cookies that work well as ice cream sandwiches. There’s a section on syrups, sauces and toppings, too. For those of us who

a dinner party you could try making water ice in an ice bowl, cranberry water ice in lace pancakes, chocolate mille-feuille slice, or chocolate teardrops with cherry sauce. This cookbook is for the experienced cook who’s not afraid of Perspex, borage leaves, kumquats, or Savoiardi. These cookbooks offer a wild and wide variety of recipes for the novice right up to the experienced cook. But don’t take my word for it. Try them out yourself!

The author divides the flavours thematically, so in the Asian flavours section you have things like yam, sweet cucumber, black sesame and wasabi flavours.

Pot crusader pans marijuana ticketing idea

by Jeff Nagel Black Press A recommendation to let police treat simple marijuana possession as a ticketing offence is being opposed by the head of a provincial campaign to decriminalize pot. Dana Larsen, whose group Sensible BC is set to kick off a petition campaign next month to force a referendum on marijuana policy, says the new resolution from the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police is counter-productive. The chiefs’ association argues the option of writing tickets to punish people caught with less than 30 grams of marijuana would be less costly and time-intensive than sending criminal charges through the courts. “It’s a bad idea,” Larsen said. “It’s actually going to result in more cannabis users being persecuted.” He said police in B.C. issue warnings or write reports on 18,000 people a year for use of marijuana without laying charges. “They would all get tickets under that new system,” Larsen predicted. He said the proposal could confuse B.C. voters as canvassers prepare to ask them to sign a petition that would press for a referendum on a proposed law blocking use of B.C. police resources for enforcing simple possession. “Our solution does not involve

fines or alternative penalties, it involves leaving people alone.” If Ottawa embraced broader legislative reform, he added, it should simply legalize pot. “I’d rather see revenue generated through legalization, regulation and taxation rather than fining the people who happen to be unlucky enough to get caught by police,” he said. Larsen noted ticket-empowered police would still have the ability to charge some pot users, raising questions about potential selective enforcement. The federal government, which would have to change federal legislation to enable marijuana ticketing, indicated it has no plans to legalize or decriminalize pot possession. Vancouver Police Chief Const. Jim Chu, president of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, said the organization does not support cannabis decriminalization or legalization. Chu said police now must either turn a blind eye or lay charges when they encounter pot use, and ticketing would offer a new, more effective enforcement option. The chiefs also say pot users who are ticketed for simple possession would avoid a criminal record that can block them from international travel, getting a job or gaining citizenship. SFU criminology professor Rob Gordon called the resolution a significant shift that indicates police across the country – not just in B.C. – are ready for reform. “It’s the thin edge of the wedge, it’s the beginning of a move away from the criminal enforcement approach,” Gordon said.

He said Sensible BC campaigners are pushing for change too fast and said ticketing would be part of a more gradual move to alter public thinking and government policy. “When marijuana policy is normalized, I think we’ll look back at this period and say this is when the process began for the shift from criminalization towards regulation and taxation,” Gordon said. “If you go slowly, you can help people shift their thinking from their current belief that marijuana use is some sort of demonic activity to recognizing it as just another recreational drug that does minimal harm and the sky will not fall.” He said he wouldn’t be surprised if B.C. liquor stores sell pot within five years. Although Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been firmly against marijuana reform, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s call for change this summer in B.C. reignited the issue. Gordon said Harper won’t be able to ignore the chiefs’ resolution, although he might send it to a committee for a lengthy period of study. He said there are signs even Harper is positioning his government for a pivot on the issue, noting the recent cabinet shuffle saw the departure of several lawand-order hardliners, including former Public Safety Minister Vic Toews. A B.C. justice ministry spokesperson said police in B.C. must enforce the federal Controlled Drugs and Substances Act as it now stands and any changes to the legislation would be up to Ottawa.

Petition campaigners have 1,000 canvassers Sensible BC’s Dana Larsen said 1,000 canvassers are registered so far to collect signatures starting Sept. 9. He said he hopes to have at least 2,000 in place by that date and to gain more – the group has a target of 5,000 – as the marijuana decriminalization campaign gathers steam. They’ll have 90 days to collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered provincial voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts. Larsen said the Fight HST campaign had 3,000 can-

vassers in place at the outset and got another 2,000 to 3,000 in the ensuing weeks. “I’m cautiously optimistic,” he said. No formal opponent of the initiative registered with Elections BC by an Aug. 12 deadline. Had a group done so it would have had a spending limit of approximately $1 million to counter Sensible BC. Groups and individuals can still sponsor advertising for and against the petition, but will be subject to a $5,000 limit.

BC Ferries bonuses send ‘wrong message’ Incentive pay for brass rose when extra subsidy created surplus by Jeff Nagel Black Press Despite rising fares and looming service cuts, top executives at BC Ferries still collected big performance bonuses this year. President and CEO Michael Corrigan got a $64,421 “incentive payment” on top of a base salary that was up eight per cent to $364,000 for a total of $563,000 in overall remuneration – the maximum allowed after a cap on payouts was put in place last year. BC Ferries’ executive compensation disclosure says Corrigan’s bo-

nus reflects his “exemplary leadership” that was borne out by the corporation beating its financial target for the 2012-13 fiscal year. Chief financial officer Robert Clark got more than $133,000 in incentive pay and executive vice-president Glen Schwartz got an extra $127,000 based on performance. Both of their bonuses were almost twice as high as a year earlier and the two collected close to $500,000 overall. None of the payouts are anywhere near as high as the more than $1 million that former CEO David Hahn received in some past years until he left the corporation and the government eliminated additional long-term bonuses and imposed the compensation cap. Managers were eli-

gible for their full incentive pay this year because of the $15-million surplus BC Ferries posted for last year. In the previous two years, they got only half as much incentive pay because the corporation missed its financial targets. But NDP critic Nicholas Simons said the new surplus is a fiction because of the $21.5 million in additional subsidies the province injected. “The only reason they got their full bonuses was because the government provided that increased service fee,” Simons said. Transportation Minister Todd Stone wasn’t available for an interview but issued a statement saying the executive payouts send the “wrong message” at a time when BC Ferries is

struggling to reduce its expenses. He said he will speak to the BC Ferries board to outline the province’s expectations for all executives at Crown corporations. “While BC Ferries isn’t a Crown corporation, they do receive provincial government

funding and we would expect them to follow suit,” Stone said. “Government is tightening its belt, along with many British Columbians, and I believe that BC Ferries should take the same approach.” Simons, however, said the BC Liberals have had plenty of time to act.

“Four ministers in a row have been saying how disappointed or disturbed or shocked they are when they see this exorbitant compensation,” Simons said. “The reality is they’ve done nothing about it.” The Powell-River Sunshine Coast MLA said his constituents are

Richmond City Hall is searching for a collection agency to recover up to $480,000 in fines and accounts that go unpaid each year. City officials refer as many as 5,600 delinquent accounts to an outside agency each year—everything from outstanding invoices and licences to parking tickets and bylaw violations. Accounts for bylaw fines range from $75 to $5,000, while outstanding accounts receivable can be much higher. City hall is accepting requests for proposals until Sept. 4, and a contract could be awarded by the end of September. According to the proposal document, the city seeks to maximize the recovery of outstanding accounts while “minimizing public complaints related to collection activities.” As a city contractor, the agency—according to the document—”shall not, under any circumstances, use any threats, intimidation, or harassment of a debtor in the collection of accounts.” —by Matthew Hoekstra

Tee Cup Charity Golf Tournament is seeking a few foursomes by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

SHAUGHNESSY CONCOURS DELEGANCE

VANDUSEN BOTANICAL GARDEN

VANCOUVER BC

It’s a great networking opportunity that’s for an amazing cause. The 8th annual Tee Cup Charity Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, Sept. 12 at Country Meadows Golf Course, 8400 No. 6 Rd., with the beneficiary being Touchstone’s Front Porch Project, which provides free counselling services for families. The charity effort is organized by the founders of Women Making a Difference: Donna Price, Janet Clouston and Christine Campbell. Campbell said there remains a few spots open for female golfers, and she’s hoping the local community will once again step

up to support this worthy cause. “We need (a few) more foursomes...we can do it,” she said. Campbell said you don’t really need to be a golfer to participate. Singles and pairs are welcome, she said, and this year’s $150 per person entrance fee comes with an $85 tax receipt. “It’s a fabulous networking opportunity. There’s lots of business owners, business leaders...It’s a fun way to get into the game, no experience necessary.” For the past seven years, they’ve organized the charity golf tourney and dinner, encouraging women to bring out their golf gear for a fun day on the greens. To register for the tournament, visit www.teecupgolf.com or e-mail teecup@telus.net for more

information. While the golf tournament is for women only men are more than welcome for the dinner which follows. And since there’s space for only 144 golfers, women are urged to sign up early. There are also a limited number of power carts available, so call 604-241-4653 to make a reservation. There’s a shot-gun start to the event at 1 p.m., followed by a deluxe buffet dinner, along with some fabulous prizes available. Four lucky participants will be selected to take part in the Ultimate Shoot Out, sponsored by Cowell Auto Group, and features three new vehicles, $25,000 cash, and a $10,000 donation to Touchstone Family Association.

BC Liberals out-spent NDP in provincial election win Two main parties spent just over $4 million during campaign period by Jeff Nagel Black Press The BC Liberals spent $11.75 million this year on their way to a come-from-behind provincial election victory. The governing party, which listed $8.5 million in donations, out-spent the NDP, which listed spending of $9.4 million and received $9.7 million. The disclosures released by Elections BC Monday include

amounts spent before the formal 60-day campaign period when specific limits apply. The Liberals spent more in advance of the May 15 election. Within the 60-day campaign itself, the Liberals spent nearly $4.3 million to the NDP’s $4.1 million. Corporate contributors gave $5 million in donations to the Liberals, followed by individuals at $2.4 million, unincorporated businesses at $420,000 and $385,000 from other sources. NDP got nearly $2.6 million from individuals, $2.5 million from trade unions and $2.1 million from corporations. The Green Party of B.C., which won its historic first seat in Oak Bay-Gordon Head, did so on

spending of just $180,000. The Green Party spent more than the B.C. Conservative Party, which listed $155,000 in expenses. The central party expenses don’t count the additional spending at the local level by individual candidates or constituency associations. Organizations that filed expense reports as election advertising sponsors ranged from large established groups like the B.C. Teachers Federation and the Mining Association of B.C. to tiny ones like Kamloops Moms for Clean Air and Denman Opposes Coal. The bulk of sponsors were teachers unions, other labour organizations, or environmental groups.

Municipal election reform pledged for 2014 campaign Province opts to hold back spending limits until 2017 by Jeff Nagel Black Press A ban on anonymous contributions in municipal elections is among the reforms the provincial government is pledging to have in place the next time local voters go to the polls to elect councils in November of 2014. Details on the changes are to be spelled out in a white paper next month. But Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Coralee Oakes said additional changes will also require disclosure and registration of third-party advertisers in local government elections. Sponsorship information will also be mandatory on all election advertising, and campaign finance disclosures will have to be filed within 90 days, instead of 120 days.

Limits on campaign spending for candidates, organizations and third-party advertisers are also coming, but they will be held back for implementation for the 2017 elections in order to allow more time for consultations. The province is also expected to push municipal campaigns up one month, to run in the third week of October starting in 2017. Oakes said the changes will improve transparency and accountability, calling them the most significant modernization of local election legislation in nearly two decades. The changes will apply to elections for municipalities, regional districts, park boards, the Islands Trust and boards of education. Union of B.C. Municipalities president Mary Sjostrom said she’s pleased with the commitment and said the government’s phased approach should ensure the changes work well for the full range of B.C. communities. NDP local government critic Selina Robinson was critical of the delay to impose a campaign spending cap and said she’s not sure why the province needs more time and a

Bosa Development’s Pacific Point includes gourmet kitchens with stainless-steel appliances and an undermount sink, above, as well as open layouts and huge windows that let the natural light pour in, top and bottom right.

Fine Yaletown living at Bosa’s Pacific Point By Kerry Vital

In the Lower Mainland’s busy real estate market, luxury and sophistication is tops on the lists of many buyers. Bosa Development ticks both of those boxes with Pacific Point, its condominium project in Vancouver’s Yaletown neighbourhood. “Response has been overwhelming for Pacific Point,” says Bosa Sales and Marketing

Manager Lisa Murrell. “There simply isn’t anything like it in Vancouver.” Pacific Point was originally a rental building, but was purchased by Nat Bosa and converted into condos. Every suite has been completely redone, with new appliances, new decor and new plumbing. The building holds 214 homes, ranging from 450 to 1,680 square feet. Buyers will find amazing views of False Creek, George Wainborn Park, David Lam Park, English Bay and downtown Vancouver from every suite, along with high-end kitchens, elegant living areas and gorgeous bathrooms. The kitchens feature a quartz-slab backsplash, polished quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances, complemented by undercabinet task lighting, an undermount sink and imported Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry with soft-close doors and drawers,

which also appears in the bathrooms. Laminate wood flooring is included throughout most of the main living areas, with large porcelain tiles in the dens and chic carpeting in the bedrooms. The modern bathrooms have their own porcelain tiles and polished quartz countertops, as well as a fantastic soaker tub and an enclosed glass shower in select ensuites. In-suite laundry facilities come standard in every home, as well as custom roller blinds and solid wood entry doors that will easily block out the rest of the world. Homeowners have the choice of two interior colour schemes, Latte and Grey, designed by Cristina Oberti Interior Design. Bosa has long been known for amazing homes and its customer service focus, and this certainly continues with Pacific Point.

Nat Bosa himself is a real estate legend in the Lower Mainland. “Buyers know they are going to get quality and Nat Bosa’s value assurance backing the project,” Murrell says. The Yaletown neighbourhood is known as one of the most vibrant in the city, and Pacific Point is perfectly situated to take advantage of everything that the area has to offer. Restaurants and shopping are right on your doorstep, as well as transit, entertainment, leisure and recreation. If you’re in the mood for some outdoor activity, you’re just moments away from the SeaWall. At Pacific Point itself, you’ll find a swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, fitness studio and yoga area, and a residents lounge with a pool table, as well as a grand double-height lobby and concierge. Homes at Pacific Point are move-in ready and start at $344,900. For more information, visit www.pacificpointcondos.com, call 604-685-0855 or visit the sales centre at 1323 Homer Street, Vancouver any day except Fridays, from noon to 5 p.m.

lines, Gene Figueroa was soon hooked. Figueroa, 20, is a paddler for Ares, one of 60 dragon boat teams competing in the Steveston Dragon Boat Festival Saturday. The festival is expected to draw hundreds of spectators and 1,600 paddlers, and for Figueroa and many others, the appeal lies in teamwork. “That’s really what draws me in. I like paddling with the team. (As) a group of people we just click and work together for a common goal,” said Figueroa, who practises the

A $150-million development proposed for north Richmond could become an international hub for education, boasting a potential to accommodate 600 foreign students, along with language schools, colleges and universities. Dubbed Global Education City, the development would occupy a site on the west side of No. 3 Road, between Bridgeport Road and Sea Island Way, near River Rock Casino Resort. Wensley Architecture Ltd. has submitted plans to city hall for a nine-storey office and campus building fronting Sea Island Way, a 15-storey dormitory building at No. 3 Road, and a six-level parkade and amenity building fronting Bridgeport Road, according to the city. Planning staff are reviewing the proposal, which has yet to be considered by city council. An online promotional video sells the project as “Canada’s premium education super centre” with space for children’s education centres, language schools, career and technical colleges and universities, along with student residences. It suggests a completion date of spring 2016. See Page 3
