From East to West

Walmart deal gets sweetened Developer attempts to placate a council committee split on shopping mall by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Francis Turmeau photo The Xiao Bai Fan children’s music and dance troupe from Qingdao performed at River Rock Show Theatre Saturday, Oct. 5. The troupe performed with Richmond’s Urban Dance Company as part of a cultural exchange between the Chinese city and the City of Richmond. The east coast Chinese city is an official friendship city to Richmond.

SmartCentres has sweetened its proposal to build a $150-million Walmart-anchored shopping mall in Richmond, weeks after making significant concessions to move its plan forward at city hall. Staff again recommended to city council’s planning committee Tuesday that SmartCentres’ rezoning application be granted first reading and be forwarded to a public hearing. The developer has pledged to slightly increase its parkland dedication on the 6.8-hectare (16.8-acre) West Cambie site, and ante up an additional $238,280 for environmental improvements, according to a memo from director of development Wayne Craig. The move follows the application’s Sept. 17 hearing at city hall, where some councillors decided SmartCentres hadn’t done enough to win their approval— despite offering to foot the entire $10.2-million bill for a new connector road leading to the mall. Residents following the proposal also weren’t enamoured, as the city fielded 26 letters from opponents since that meeting—including one from Barbara Allan. “Continued destruction of the natural habitat will soon make Richmond another lifeless, predictable, black-topped wasteland,

“Continued destruction of the natural habitat will soon make Richmond another lifeless, predictable, blacktopped wasteland...” — Barbara Allen quite contrary to the goal of being a livable city where man and nature can still connect.” Some residents took issue with the mall’s main tenant, Walmart, while others simply suggested the northeast corner of Alderbridge Way and Garden City Road is the wrong location for a mall. “The site being proposed for Walmart is a wildlife corridor, which amongst many things serves as a roosting area for large flocks of crows,” wrote Kathleen Beaumont. “It is also one of the last remaining mature treed areas in what was once a charming enclave of small family farms.” The long-planned open-air mall was essentially approved in principle by council in 2006 with the adoption of the West Cambie Area Plan. Central at Garden City would boast up to 50 stores, including a Walmart, London Drugs, The Keg, Bed Bath & Beyond and Marshalls. According to SmartCentres, its development will boost the city’s commercial property tax revenues by $2.5 million and create 975 new permanent jobs by mall businesses—in addition to hundreds of construction jobs.

‘Myths’ standing in way of jobs for disabled Tim Hortons franchisee touts benefits of hiring people with disabilities during Community Living Month kickoff by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Standing in front of a breakfast crowd of politicians, business owners and community leaders, Mark Wafer talked about one of his best employees. Business was brisk at his first Tim Hortons franchise, and Wafer needed more help. Clint Sparling walked in; Wafer hired him. Sparling has Down syndrome, and before being hired was among the estimated 70 per cent of people with disabilities who are unemployed. But Sparling broke through the stigma surrounding workers with disabilities and within weeks became one of Wafer’s best employees. The self-titled “dining room manager” has now been with the company for 18 years. “Five years ago Clint got married to his high school sweetheart, bought a condo and he’s living a full life,” said Wafer. “He’s living the kind of life that we want for ourselves and we want for our children simply because he has a meaningful and competitively paying job.” Wafer was the guest speaker at an employer appreciation breakfast at Richmond Golf and Country Club Oct. 4. Hosted by Richmond Society for Community Living—which helps

employers find people suited for available jobs—the event marked the start of Community Living Month in B.C. Minister of Social Development Don McRae spoke after Mayor Malcolm Brodie officially proclaimed October as Community Living Month in Richmond. Wafer knows firsthand the barriers that people with disabilities face when searching for a job. He was born with only 20 per cent of his hearing and couldn’t keep a job as a young man. Some employers, he said, perceive people with disabilities as slower, less safe or requiring extensive accommodations. “These are all myths. The greatest barrier a person with a disability faces in order to get into the workforce is these myths and misperceptions,” he said. “The reality of course is the exact opposite.” Sixty per cent of people with disabilities require no accommodation, said Wafer, adding that their absenteeism and turnover rates are much lower than the rest of the population. Noting his Ontario Tim Hortons franchises— where he employs 50 people with disabilities—experience a turnover rate nearly half that of other locations, Wafer said his staff feel they’re a part of something special.

The greatest barrier a person with a disability faces in order to get into the workforce is these myths and misperceptions.” — Mark Wafer

Matthew Hoekstra photo Mark Wafer, owner of multiple Tim Hortons franchises, has had only about 20 per cent of his hearing since birth. He told a Richmond crowd that being an inclusive employer ‘enhances your business big time.’

“It changes the culture of the workplace,” he said. “It makes them feel good.” Wafer also stressed that hiring people with disabilities shouldn’t pose a financial burden for employers, and can help meet their needs in the midst of a looming labour shortage. “By having an inclusive workforce, I’m making more money,” he said. “Being an inclusive employer enhances your business big time.” Speaking after Wafer at the Friday morning

event were three workers, all people with disabilities employed at local businesses. One was Katelyn McPhedrian, who has two jobs, one at Tim Hortons, the other at Thompson Community Centre where her job involves cleaning and assisting in programs. “The little kids drive me crazy but I love them,” she told the crowd. “I am proud to have a job and I do my best. Thank you for hiring me.”

Richmond’s civic flag to receive ‘honour and respect’ Mayor says civic flag should rank higher in precedence than Canadian Olympic banner by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Allowing them to touch the ground is a nono. Flying them at night is fine—as long as they’re lit. And for at least two days a year they must fly at half mast. City council endorsed a series of official rules surrounding flags Monday, agreeing to a new five-page flag policy that outlines flag etiquette, half-masting of flags and the order of precedence for flying flags. The policy replaces an outdated 1986 statute that’s little more than a list of civic facilities that should receive a municipal flag. “As the city has grown, there has been increased demand for appropriate use of flags to align with international protocol and corporately demonstrate honour and respect,” noted Denise Tambellini, manager of the city’s intergovernmental relations and protocol unit, in a report to council. Staff crafted the policy by adapting protocol

followed by senior governments. Under the policy, flags will be flown at halfmast position as a sign of respect and mourning on April 28, the national Day of Mourning

for workers killed or injured on the job, and Nov. 11, Remembrance Day. Deaths of dignitaries also warrant half-masting of flags. The new policy also allows film crews to

temporarily change flags flown on city property—but forbids the swapping of a Canadian flag with another sovereign nation’s symbol. A precedence order for flags is also outlined in the policy. The city ranked No. 5, after the national flag, other sovereign nations, provinces and territories. Staff suggested if the city decides to fly the Canadian Olympic flag on an occasion such as Olympic Day on June 23, Richmond’s coat of arms would rank below what Tambellini described as a “national” Olympic flag. Mayor Malcolm Brodie thought differently. “It’s no different than the Red Cross in that sense,” he said Monday. “I’m suggesting that it would be the city flag that would take precedence over the Olympic flag.” Council agreed to the minor change in the policy, which—once ratified—will apply to all flags flown by the city at city hall, the Richmond Olympic Oval and other civic facilities. Archived council minutes reveal the city officially introduced its flag at the opening of Brighouse Park on April 12, 1986, noted city spokesperson Ted Townsend. The inner design of the blue-and-gold flag represents the shield on the city’s coat of arms, which was adopted on Nov. 10, 1979 for the centenary of incorporation of the municipality. Three Pacific salmon are depicted on the shield.

Bid to tighten farm rules ‘complicated’ by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Questions swirling around the city’s possible role in regulating activities on farmland have proven to have no simple answers, city council learned Monday. “I think there’s a lot of different facets to this. (It’s) a very complicated issue—far more complicated than I expected it was,”said Mayor Malcolm Brodie at a committee meeting at city hall. In January council gave preliminary approval to bylaw changes requiring permits for soil removal and fill projects on Agricultural Land Reserve property. The new regulations were set to move to the next stage Monday, but after hearing numerous concerns from council, the mayor called for further review. The province supports the changes, according to staff, but a majority vote from council is also needed. A fill project at 9360 Finn Rd. prompted the city to look at tightening rules for farmland in the face of an “underfunded, understaffed” regulator in the Agricultural Land Commission, according to Brodie. Council must now decide whether

it wants to enter into an agreement with the commission that would give the city greater control over the approval of certain fill applications. But Phyllis Carlyle, the city’s general manager of law and community safety, cautioned that the city wouldn’t replace the commission, and it could come at a cost of $233,063 to the city in staffing. “We would be assuming the cost. As well, our city staff would not be free to deviate from policies of the (land commission),” she said. “It would be as if we were one of their employees.” Council will have to decide whether it wants to begin monitoring the activities on farmland more closely through new bylaws—but with the understanding there’s only a certain amount of control it will have. “You won’t be able to control all of it, because the (commission) has said ‘No, if it’s farm use, that’s our jurisdiction and we’re not giving it up,’” said Carlyle. “You will not get the whole pie—you’re going to get part of the pie, but it may not be sufficient.” But Coun. Evelina Halsey-Brandt said she didn’t even ask for the piece of pie council has been given. She said the biggest issue is fill activity on farmland that’s deemed farm use—

an activity council couldn’t stop if it’s sanctioned by the Agricultural Land Commission. That’s what happened at Finn Road, where protesters took issue with the construction of a wide access road built with recycled concrete, but the commission ruled it’s an acceptable farm use. “So we’re dealing with an issue that we didn’t bring to the table to begin with,” she said. “I’m frustrated, I know what we want to do, and I know we cannot do it.” Coun. Harold Steves said he wants to see the city get tough with people depositing illegal fill on farmland—whether it’s for farm use or non-farm use. “The buck has to stop somewhere and if the land commission isn’t going to do it, then we have to do it.” Also Monday council decided to urge Premier Christy Clark and Minister of Agriculture Pat Pimm to protect the Agricultural Land Reserve and the Agricultural Land Commission, which is part of the province’s current core review of programs and services. In a letter, council is asking the province to “protect, enhance, adequately fund and enforce” the land reserve, the commission and its policies. Nearly 40 per cent of Richmond is locked in the reserve.

Cash, ‘sustainability features,’ to make up for park space From Page 1 Richmond’s Official Community Plan designates 1.51 acres of the development site as parkland. SmartCentres’ original proposal fell short of that, at 1.08 acres, but it now plans to boost that marginally, to 1.23 acres. Two-thirds of the park space would be a green rooftop deck above a parking lot. SmartCentres is offering to make up the remaining deficit with cash and “sustainability features” in the development, according to Craig’s report. Those features include a compact development, four electric vehicle charging stations, two end-oftrip bicycle facilities, a minimum LEED silver design standard and tapping into the geothermal Alexandra District Energy Utility for the project’s heating and cooling needs.

Bullets fired at Richmond fitness club Customers of a Richmond fitness club had their workouts interrupted by gunshots on Monday evening. No one was injured as shots were fired outside the Steve Nash Fitness World at 6351 Westminster Hwy. near Elmbridge at 9:51 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 7. Up to six bullet holes were found outside the fitness centre, though it is unknown if someone at the gym was the intended target. Richmond RCMP are interviewing those who were at the gym, though no intended victims have been identified at this time.

But the mall also falls short of protecting 2.57 acres of land originally designated as environmentally sensitive area. A SmartCentres consultant recommended that be reduced by one acre—due to disturbance, limited surrounding habitat and invasive plants—and the city’s own consultant agreed. A new roadway further reduces the protected land. Staff say SmartCentres is making up for that by making a small land dedication and contributing cash for habitat enhancement. “After 10 years of planning and discussion with the city, we are pleased that our project is one which is reflective of its new plan for the City Centre, and is more environmentally sensitive,” noted a report from SmartCentres to the city.

won’t be signing the “Sensible B.C.” petition to demand a provincewide referendum on marijuana enforcement. You shouldn’t either, and here are a few reasons why. Let me start by saying I’ve been calling for legalization and regulation of pot for 20 years, to conserve police resources and reduce violent crime. Our war on drugs is a failure even for heroin and cocaine, and marijuana is obviously much easier to produce.

But the current effort led by Dana Larsen, B.C.’s clown prince of pot, is not only misguided, it’s dangerous. The petition does not propose legalization. It seeks to impose a provincial law that would stop B.C. police from using any resources for simple possession charges. This would create a loophole in the federal drug law. So what would that do? It would protect otherwise innocent customers of the current illegal marijuana trade, while leaving the criminal distribution business in place. For a closer look at that, I recommend reports from the Surrey Six murder trial now underway, or the upcoming case against three accused assassins of Red Scorpion gangster Jonathan Bacon in Kelowna. Larsen’s loony law would tie police hands when they are trying to hold someone on a lesser charge while they search for evidence of

something nastier. This is a source of many simple possession charges today. Police chiefs have a different idea, asking for the option of treating simple possession as a ticket offence to keep the court time to a minimum. Both of these notions have the same obvious flaws. They don’t deal with sales to minors and they divert no revenue to government, leaving most of that in the hands of criminal dealers who buy cocaine, guns and fancy cars. Colorado and Washington have gone the legalization route, so far without interference from their federal government. These states need money, and they don’t need more crime or ill-considered hippy gesture politics. Meanwhile in Ottawa, Health Canada is trying to convert a poorly regulated mess of smallscale medical marijuana licences to a free-market system of commercial

producers. Local politicians tore a strip off Health Canada officials at their recent convention, after years of warnings that federal licences were scattered at unknown locations, often used as fronts for larger grow-ops. Mission Coun. Dave Hensman predicted that when a grower gets a letter cancelling his licence, he’s more likely to roll up a big joint with it than to shut down. Burnaby Coun. Nick Volkow suggested the response would echo an old Cheech and Chong routine: “Dave’s not here, man.” Here’s another reason not to support Larsen: the conduct of his organizers. One fellow set up a petition table at, of all places, the Terry Fox Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam. After scrawling “pot cures cancer” on the table, he proceeded to interrupt speeches by cancer survivors and the run itself by yelling the

same false slogan. You can imagine how people with terminal cancer and their loved ones would react. Some would know that marijuana may alleviate side effects of chemotherapy, just as it can ease suffering for some multiple sclerosis patients. But the suggestion of a cure is as cruel as it is moronic. Larsen’s “cannibus” has been rolling around B.C., reaping uncritical media coverage. It even blundered into the recent Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver, an event to mark the end of federal hearings into the effects of residential schools on aboriginal children. I wouldn’t support the Larsen bunch for anything, unless it involved them looking for jobs. Just say no.

Editor: A new bridge and tearing down the existing Massey Tunnel is foolish. More road capacity is not a long-term solution. It merely increases reliance on cars. Better to extend the Canada Line to south of the Fraser, especially since nearly all tunnel traffic is sole-occupancy. And why tear down the tunnel to allow bigger freighters on the Fraser? Will more port capacity, more warehouses, more industrial parks and traffic corridors enhance the livability of the Lower Mainland?

We must reduce port generated traffic in the Lower Mainland, not increase it. With an abundance of coastline why ship coal, grain, oil, containers in transit, etc. through the Lower Mainland? We must do to the Lower Mainland what Vancouver did years ago to False Creek—clear out industry, noise, foul air, traffic. Make it a preserve of quality living! Instead of a $3 billion bridge into a parking lot, carving up more agricultural land, increasing truck traffic and making our community less liveable, we should ex-

plore port capacity along the hundreds of kilometres of coast north of Vancouver. What is particularly distasteful is the strong political odour. This Liberal election tactic (2017?) derails TransLink’s regional planning, will be paid for by tolls on the users and showcases a premier’s excessive, unbridled powers. We should ask the United Nations for international intervention on the grounds B.C.’s premier violates basic democratic principles. Nick Loenen Richmond

Editor: There are some agencies like the fire-rescue and police who usually don’t get the credit they deserve. These men and women put their lives at risk in order to keep our communities safe and peaceful. Take for example, the Richmond RCMP. This federal law enforcement agency consisting of more than 226 well-trained, competent professionals is a credit to Richmond. Richmond RCMP is one of the most culturally diverse forces in the province. Eighty-five of its officers also speak another language in addition to English. As a matter of fact, our local Mounties are well versed in 29 different languages and dialects. These bilingual members assist other units or sections (including IHIT) throughout the Lower Mainland when translators aren’t readily available. This fits well with Richmond as a model of multiculturalism and multilingualism. RCMP’s six guiding principles—integrity, honesty, professionalism, compassion, respect and accountability—reflect very well its dedication to provide the citizens of Richmond with safe homes and a safe community. Recently, management of India Cultural Centre of Canada, home of Gurdwara Nanak Niwas invited the local police administration and some of the frontline officers to a delicious vegetarian lunch. The main purpose of this meet and greet initiative was to thank our officers for the excellent job they have been doing in keeping our community safe. Gurdwara management was joined by some of its neighbours along the Highway to Heaven. On behalf of the Gurdwara management, India Cultural Centre of Canada chairman Asa Joal, president Chain Batth and general secretary Balbir Jawanda welcomed and thanked Supt. Rennie Nesset and his officers. The RCMP officers were issued an open invitation to visit the Sikh Temple any time and interact with the congregation. This writer, as one of the organizers of the event, found it as a privilege to work with Sgt. Cam Kowalski to co-ordinate this get-together. These types of initiatives go a long way in enhancing communication and collaboration between the community and those who are charged to keep it safe. Balwant Sanghera Richmond

Roast Lamb Special

letters Beware of premiers bearing bridges Editor: At first glance, the Premier Christy Clark’s announcement for a new bridge across the Fraser looks good but when one studies the offer of a new bridge a lot of disturbing questions surface. The Massey Tunnel does not need to be replaced, as it just had a large and expensive seismic upgrade, in fact one could lay another tube next to the tunnel to expand vehicle and transit capacity at a much lower cost. It seems that lobbyists for Port Authority have convinced the Premier to get rid of the tunnel so they can deepen the river to allow massive bulk

Here’s to handrails Editor: Yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed The Metropolitan Opera’s HD Live production of Eugene Onegin at Silvercity. We are so lucky to have access to these special events at Silvercity in Richmond! The theatre was full, and I suspect that everyone there was mightily impressed with the close to 4 hours of entertainment. What added to the enjoyment of the event for me was how polite and helpful the Silvercity staff were. Perhaps it was the nature of the event and audience, but wouldn’t it be nice if good manners were the order of the day everywhere, inside and out, in Richmond! However, I did notice that for many “opera goers” it was a challenge to go up and down the stairs in the Silvercity theatre, even with Silvercity staff readily available to help people if required, because there is no handrail. (I’ve noticed the same situation at Gateway Theatre.) Perhaps it’s time that all public facilities with stairs be mandated to include handrails for safety. The 70-plus crowd loves to get out and enjoy themselves as much as those who are younger, and it is easier for them to do so if they know that going up and down stairs isn’t a potential hazard to their safety. Thanks to Silvercity staff for an excellent time! Janet Oakes Richmond

carriers to reach Surrey docks to load coal and oil; but wasn’t the Robert’s Bank Superport created, so massive bulk carriers did not need to travel up the Fraser, saving time, large pilotage fees and the taxpayer not needing to pay for regular comprehensive dredging? What about the extra traffic the 10-lane bridge will dump into Richmond? The tunnel, having only four lanes, provided passive traffic calming, regulating the flow of traffic. All the new bridge will do is move gridlock to the next choke points, the Knight and Oak Street Bridges. There is no mention of easing congestion on the

lonely Queensborough bridge, which is older than the Massey tunnel and is at capacity almost all day. Unless there is a new bridge to Vancouver, gridlock will be endemic on the 99 and 91 highways in Richmond and New Westminster. The proposed bridge makes a farce with improving transit South of the river as the Liberal government is investing in “rubber on asphalt” with single occupancy cars, leaving transit mainly for the poor, the elderly, and students. The $2.5-billion Canada Line is shown the white elephant it is; too expensive to expand and extend, with ridership

coming mainly from bus customers forced to transfer to the minimetro. It would cheaper to build a Vancouver to Steveston and Ironwood Mall LRT, that extend the Canada Line. The hypocrisy associated with the proposed bridge knows no bounds, with many mayors wanting a referendum for the proposed bridge, yet decrying one for TransLink funding, but on the whole stating referendums are not really democratic. What are regional mayors and the premier afraid of, an outbreak of true democracy? The timing of the the proposed bridge is so

Parenting coordinators are specially trained individuals empowered by couples or by a court to resolve disputes for separated families. Lawyers who are parenting coordinators are experienced family law lawyers trained in mediation and arbitration. Some families find that they continue to be unable to agree on issues such as: • implementation of separation agreements or court orders; • scheduling conflicts for children; • interpreting a parenting plan. Parenting coordinators can assist you to: • monitor children’s adjustments to a parenting plan; • facilitate children’s relationship with each parent; • assist with communication and the exchange of information; • resolve disputes respecting transport of children’s personal possessions between parents, parenting responsibilities, education, participation in extracurricular activities, discipline of children, provision of healthcare and issues of parenting time arising from vacation and special occasions.

Parenting coordinators are appointed after a separation agreement/court order/parenting plan is in place. The parenting coordinator cannot change the terms of the agreement but deals with the day to day conflicts that may arise on a long term basis. The parenting coordinator is a neutral party who will educate where necessary, find consensus between the parties, and as a last resort resolve the dispute by making a determination binding on both parents if no common ground can be found. The process is not privileged or confidential. At COHEN BUCHAN EDWARDS, LLP we can discuss with you on a fully confidential basis to see if a Parenting Coordinator is an option for you. For more information please contact Garth Edwards at 604.273.6411.

Stephen Franz /LSU photo A multiple national award winner this week, Richmond’s Summer Clarke is already starring for Louisiana State University Tigers women’s soccer team. She leads the conference in scoring with eight goals in 13 matches.

Summer blossoming at LSU by Don Fennell Sports Editor Summer Clarke has quickly made her make on the U.S. college soccer scene while becoming a fan favourite at Louisiana State University. Since scoring in her Tigers’ debut Aug. 16, a 4-1 exhibition win over Nicholls State Colonels, the 18-year-old freshman from Richmond has continued to fill the net. She scored LSU’s lone goal in the next game, a 1-0 shutout of Louisiana Tech, and again in a 4-2 loss to No. 6-ranked Brigham Young University that closed out the exhibition schedule Sept. 2. And in her last two regular season games Clarke has scored five of the team’s eight goals, including both game winners in a weekend sweep at Arkansas and Alabama. Clarke’s first career hat trick paced the Tigers to a 5-3 win over the Razorbacks Friday, while netting both goals in Sunday’s 2-1 double overtime win over the Crimson Tide. Not surprisingly, the gifted striker now leads the league in scoring with eight goals in her first 13 games as an LSU Tiger. The notable performance earned Clarke a pair of national honours this week—Top Draw Soccer women’s national player of the week and College sports Madness Women’s Soccer Southeast Conference Player of the Week.

Last week, she was named the conference’s offensive player of the week. Clarke and good friend and roommate Emma Fletcher of Victoria were

also among the 11 players named by Top Drawer Soccer to its women’s team of the week. “She is really fitting in well at LSU both academi-

cally and (athletically) and her comfort there is coinciding with her results both on and off the field,” says her dad and longtime coach Clive Clarke.

Four TDs leads to Raiders’ win by Don Fennell Sports Editor

As one of the Richmond Raiders’ most consistent players, Darby Kwan didn’t need an encore performance. But he produced one for the ages Sunday, earning 277 yards on 15 carries and scoring four touchdowns to power his nineman Bantam Division football team to a 38-21 victory over Cloverdale Leopards in Vancouver Mainland League action at Minoru Park. Raiders’ offensive co-ordinator Rob Parmar called it one of the most inspiring efforts he’s ever seen. “I’ve been around football most of my life, and with the Raiders for the last eight seasons, and I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Parmar. “And he also played very well on the defensive side of the ball (at defensive tackle).” Two of Kwan’s major scores also came late in the game, after the Leopards had clawed their

way back to within three points of the Raiders and assumed the emotional momentum. “We have a lot of new players and maybe we became a little bit complacent with a big lead,” suggested Parmar. “We also tried a few different things that Cloverdale stopped us at, includ-

ing one situation where we were forced to punt from our 10 yard line rather than giving up two points.” But by going back to a basic I-formation, which centred on handing the ball off to Kwan, the Raiders were able to regain control of the game. “Cloverdale is a good football team and they defeated us once already

this season (20-8) and had the better time of possession (in this game), so they deserve some credit too,” said Parmar. “But the boys all dug a little deeper and decided they weren’t going to let the game get away.” Now 3-2 on the season, the Raiders will host the White Rock Titans (0-5) on Thanksgiving Monday at 1 p.m. at Minoru Park.

sports 160 to gather for Islanders go for 4 in a row at Ice Breaker Thanksgiving soccer by Don Fennell

by Don Fennell

Sports Editor

Sports Editor

Seafair Islanders Bantam A1’s can achieve something this Thanksgiving long weekend few teams in any sport and at any level have ever done—win four consecutive championships. And the coaching staff led by Ryan Weber fully expects the host team at the 11th annual Seafair-Sandman Hotel International Ice Breaker Rep Hockey Tournament to be in the mix. The Islanders boast 10 returning players and three second-year players, 14 of those with A1 experience. And Russ Weber, one of the team’s two associate coaches with Jordan Oye, senses a keen desire to get the job done. “The three-peat was a case of very hard work and a group that knew they had skills and only had to apply themselves,”Russ said.“So the know-how is there and the players need again only supply the will and desire.” Russ said events like the Ice Breaker began as a way for teams to see their players in action early in the season. But they’ve since taken on even greater importance and in the past five years have been used to assess positioning for leagues and future tournaments as well as provide WHL teams with a first look at second-year players eligible for the Bantam Draft. As the tournament’s profile continues to rise, so too does the calibre of teams it attracts. Besides the host Islanders who are again regarded as one of the best in the province, the Bantam Division will feature three top-end teams from Vancouver Island in Victoria Racquet Club, Cowichan Valley and Nanaimo. “This makes us (and everyone else) better,” said Russ. There will be eight teams in each of the Bantam A1 and A2 divisions, as well as in each of the Peewee A1 and A2 and Midget A1 and A2 divisions and four teams in each of the Atom A1 and A2 divisions. Round-robin play begins Friday, with playoffs and finals to played on Monday.

They sport such monikers as Coyotes, Galaxy and United. And this weekend, they’ll be joining forces for a long-standing Thanksgiving tradition. Combining the energies of the local boys’ and girls’ associations, Richmond Soccer is set to host 160 teams from under-11 to under-18 who will play a total 359 games Saturday and Sunday. For the first time, the 2013 event will include metro select teams which have previously had to pass on the tournament because of regularlyscheduled matches which have been eliminated this year by BC Soccer—one of the event sponsors along with Soccer Link, Fresh Slice Pizza and Hayden Diamond Bit Industries. The presence of the select teams will certainly raise the overall skill-set at the tournament, but Richmond Girls’ Soccer Association executive director Stewart MacPherson (cochairing the tournament with Tania Webster) says

the focus is, as always, on fun. “Fun is always most important, and at an event like this it’s a great opportunity for kids to play out of their usual positions,” he says. Interest in the tournament has never been greater, with 18 more girls’ teams participating than in the 2012 event. “That’s a huge increase,” says MacPherson. “And we’ve got plenty of outof-town participation from towns like Penticton, Kelowna and Powell River.” MacPherson has been scrambling to find enough officials for every game, with 143 full-sized matches (11 per side) and 48 eight-a-side games Saturday alone. It means that every field in Richmond will be occupied. Each team in the competitive under-12 to under-18 stream will be guaranteed at least three games, with finals to be played Sunday. The under-11 and under-12 teams will participate in four non-competitive festival games with no scores being kept.

ood food, great friends and beer— lots and lots of beer—were the highlights of the inaugural Steveston Beer Fest, hosted by O’Hare’s GastroPub and Liquor Store at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery last Saturday.

“Our goal was to have a fun night in the village and raise some money for the Christmas Fund and we achieved both,” said Grant Bryan, Christmas Fund roundtable member and operator of O’Hare’s. “We figured that

success would look like $5,000 and 300 attendees,” he said. Exceeding expectations, a sold out crowd of 450 guests filled up the cannery and helped O’Hare’s more than double their fundraising goal for the evening. Donations are still coming in, but Bryan said the final number would exceed $10,000. “We were delighted with the support,” he said. “It was a true community event.” Guests at the event enjoyed beer samples provided by dozens of breweries from around the Lower Mainland and food samples from several Steveston restaurants. “Everyone was having a great time from the get go,” said Bryan. Money raised by the event will go to support the Richmond Christmas Fund, which helps local families in need have a happy holiday season.
