Martin van den Hemel photo Jennifer Pavlovic is inviting locals to check out her Halloween display, at 11731 No. 2 Rd., where she’ll be collecting donations of non-perishable foods for the Richmond Food Bank. This year, she’ll be giving away a Halloween gift basket to one of the lucky individuals who makes a donation to the food bank. The display, which features a big grim reaper, a giant spider web, a zombie room, graveyard and dungeon, is open from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. today and Halloween Thursday.

Sears Canada will close its Richmond Centre store in 2015, the company announced Tuesday. It’s one of five stores slated to close under a lease termination agreement expected to be finalized in two weeks. Under the agreement, Sears will vacate the Richmond Centre store, co-owned by Ivanhoé Cambridge and Cadillac Fairview, by Feb. 28, 2015. Doug Campbell, Sears Canada’s president and CEO, said the company was “presented with an opportunity that gives us a significant financial benefit without changing our plans to improve the business and make Sears more relevant to Canadians.” “Our primary focus of creating long-term value for the company is best approached by focusing on the basics of the business and continuing to become more relevant with Canadian consumers coast to coast,” he said in a news release Tuesday. The other four stores slated to close are located in Ontario. Sears will continue to operate 111 full-line department stores following the closures. Sears employs 965 workers across all five stores. They’ll have a chance to apply for positions at other Sears locations “which could become available during the transition period,” according to the release. “I want to acknowledge the effect that this announcement will have on our Sears associates. I appreciate the service they have given to Sears, and I thank them in advance for their assistance during the transition period ahead of us,” said Campbell. See Page 4

Giant pumpkin turns into a carriage

City floats three options for Garden City lands Concepts are big on natural features and agriculture; open house planned for Nov. 7 by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Martin van den Hemel photo What do you do with a prize-winning 1,043-pound pumpkin at Halloween? Owner Dave Chan, right, collaborated with his neighbour Lloyd Shimonek, and Dave’s wife Janet Love, to fashion a fairy-tale style golden carriage. Locals can check out the creation at 17220 Fedoruk Rd., just off Westminster Highway east of No. 7 Rd. Chan’s pumpkin recently won at the giant-pumpkin contest at Aldor Acres in Langley.

Zipcar drives into Richmond market Third major carsharing firm now offering its customers vehicles at RichmondBrighouse Station by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter One is a sedan, the other a small SUV. But these otherwise ordinary vehicles parked at Richmond Centre are anything but. The new wheels are the latest additions to Zipcar Vancouver’s fleet. The car sharing company has expanded to downtown Richmond, with two designated parking stalls across from the Richmond-Brighouse Canada Line station. Unveiled last week, the Richmond Zipcars are now part of a global network of vehicles that promise a convenient, cost-effective alternative to car ownership. The firm already has nearly 125 Zipcars in Vancouver. “Richmond’s a great fit,” said Mark Pribula, Zipcar Vancouver’s general manager and a Richmond native. “There’s more and more residential towers coming up around here, and people are starting to realize—do I need to own a car, does my family need to have two cars.” Zipcars can be reserved around the clock by anyone in the firm’s network. Hourly reservations start at $8.25 per hour and $72 per day for occasional drivers. Gas, insurance and 200 kilome-

Three options for the Garden City lands are expected to be presented at a public open house next Thursday. Unveiled to city council’s parks committee Tuesday, the options are big on natural features and farm fields and short on traditional neighbourhood park features. None of the options feature sports fields or playgrounds. Instead the three choices for the 55-hectare field include natural and water features, farm fields, park spaces and a community hub. With the committee’s blessing, details of the open house are expected to be released today (Wednesday). The lands—at the edge of City Centre between Alderbridge Way and Westminster Highway—have long been shielded from public access. Now the site is owned by the city. Plans to do something with the land sped up in the spring with a well-attended ideas fair. Option A, dubbed “In Nature,” would restore the natural ecology of the site while reserving 35 acres for agriculture. Trees would be planted along Alderbridge Way, where a community farm and sustainability hub and multi-purpose community fields would go. A trail network is also part of the package. Option B, “On the Grid” envisions a larger farm area. The land would be divided into flexible one-acre parcels for farming and would include an extensive trail system. Option C is “Off the Grid,” a plan that also largely focuses on farming, but its agricultural parcels are patterned 45-degrees from the typical urban grid, creating a “unique and dynamic space within the city,” according to a staff report. The lands remain locked in the Agricultural Land Reserve, meaning uses must comply with farm regulations.

tres of driving per day are included in the cost. According to Pribula, each car share vehicle has the capacity to take up to 20 cars off the road. Using the vehicles in place of owning a car can be environmentally responsible and save an individual—or family—money. “Our motto is wheels when you want them. That’s what it is: use a car when you need a car,” said Pribula. “If you can walk, if you can take

transit, if you can cycle, we embrace that. We want you to do those things. Use a car when you need a car.” Zipcar also offers convenience for travellers, who can make an immediate reservation to secure a vehicle in cities around the world—accessing the car by using their personal Zipcard, which unlocks the doors. Car2Go was the first car-share company to break into the Richmond market. It has two vehi-

cles stationed in the parking lot at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Lansdowne Road campus. Modo, the third major player in the local car-share market, also has two vehicles in Richmond: one near Lansdowne Station, another at Brighouse. Last fall Richmond council made it easier for car-share companies to expand here by reserving up to three on-street parking spaces around Canada Line stations for car-share vehicles.

End of an era for Sears in Richmond From Page 1 As for the future of the two-level Richmond Centre space, Cadillac Fairview spokesperson Janine Ojah-Maharaj said the firm is “always looking for opportunities to update the merchandising mix at our shopping centres to create a premier shopping experience for our customers, and this agreement with Sears is a reflection of that.� “We do not disclose information regarding tenant negotiations or the merchandising and/or leasing strategy of our shopping centres, but we are very excited about future plans for these Sears locations and will share those plans when appropriate,� she told The Richmond Review in an e-mail. One possible suitor is Nordstrom. The upscale department store is already taking over another Sears location in the region—at Pacific Centre Mall in downtown Vancouver—and is set to open in late 2015. Meanwhile, another major retailer is moving ahead

with plans to open its first department store in Richmond. Target announced Monday it will open its Lansdowne Centre location on Wednesday, Nov. 13. Target is moving into space previously occupied by Zellers. Another 30 Target stores will open across Canada that same day. “The final store openings for this year mark a major milestone in Target’s history,� said Tony Fisher, president of Target Canada, in a news release. “The goal for our Canadian expansion was to open 124 stores across all ten provinces in 2013, and we are proud to say that with the help of more than 20,000 Canadian team members nationwide, we have accomplished this unprecedented undertaking.� Sears has operated a store in Richmond since 1965. It was originally Simpsons-Sears as part of the old Richmond Square shopping centre and moved to its present location in 1989.

Liquefaction damage expected from quake From Page 1 The modeling forecasts a high shaking intensity in areas such as Delta, Richmond and Victoria, causing extensive damage to unreinforced masonry buildings, including partial collapse. A large area of Surrey, Burnaby, Coquitlam and Vancouver Island would experience the second-highest level of shaking intensity, significantly damaging poorly built buildings. The report says lowlands with risky soil types could see significant damage from ground liquefaction, causing buildings to settle, tilt or slide. “Liquefaction damage is expected in Delta, Richmond and portions of Burnaby, Surrey, Port Coquitlam, Pitt

Meadows, Maple Ridge and Abbotsford due to the loose granular sediments, high water table, and long duration ground shaking.� It also cautions ground failure from liquefaction can also have a “great impact� on roads, freeways, bridges and buried pipelines. Some dikes around the Fraser River delta area may also be affected, compromising their ability to prevent flooding if a tsunami wave also arrives at high tide. Most low-rise residential buildings in Richmond are expected to face moderate damage, as well as government buildings around Richmond City Hall, it says. The report predicts some roads

will be damaged and impassable, water supply and other buried services will be compromised and drivers should expect many bridges to be temporarily closed, if only for a few hours to check for damage that may be slight in most cases. Vancouver International Airport would likely be cut off by road in the first few days due to the shutdown of access bridges. And road travel between Vancouver or Richmond and suburbs to the east and south is also expected to be impaired, the report says. The report says some residential buildings in west Richmond could experience substantial tsunami damage.

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Seated in a wheelchair, Inge Margot McDonald faced the small room filled with friends, family and well-wishers. They held up certificates signed by politicians marking her 100th year. Cameras flashed as smiling onlookers captured the milestone birthday celebration last Friday. But the Richmond centenarian, known as Margot, was resting. Then someone wheeled her toward the birthday cake. Margot stirred and smiled—it was, after all, chocolate. Corinne Champagne, the granddaughter who’s cared for her since a stroke eight years ago, helped her with a few forkfuls, and was quick to explain the reasons behind her grandmother’s longevity. “Eight glasses of water a day. Never be idle. Always find a new interest or hobby to keep you interested and keep you going.” Born Sept. 29, 1913 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Margot beat the odds early and has lived life to its fullest ever since. At six months she survived a 25-foot fall from a window, according to family, and then survived the Spanish flu. She married, opened a dress salon and gave birth to her only child, Ilse. Her husband survived a Nazi concentration camp, but, Champagne said, was never the same. Margot came to Canada with her daughter in 1956. She earned a teaching certificate in the arts from Banff School of Fine Arts (now the Banff Centre), and created visual art that can now be found in galleries and private collections around the world. Margot also owned and ran racehorses. In 2000, Margot staged her last art exhibition at Vancouver’s VanDusen Botanical Garden, and sold most of the work on display. A few years later came the stroke.

Musqueam leader who urged city to build on Garden City lands mourned Ernest Campbell, who died Saturday, sued Richmond after the collapse of a development deal by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A former Musqueam Indian Band chief who clashed with Richmond City Hall after a development deal for the Garden City lands fell apart, will be remembered today at a funeral. Ernest Campbell died Saturday from complications of diabetes. He was 72. Campbell served as Musqueam’s chief for over 20 years, retiring at the end of 2012, according to a statement from the band. “Musqueam Indian Band mourns the loss of a great leader whose strong voice and leadership ensured that the Musqueam people’s issues were front and centre in Vancouver and British Columbia and on the national level. He led with dignity and strength and served as a powerful voice for Musqueam.� During his time as chief, Campbell had many dealings with City of Richmond officials over the Garden City lands. Campbell worked out an agreement with the city and Canada Lands Company to build housing on

a portion of the land. But after two failed attempts to remove the parcel from the Agricultural Land Reserve, the deal fell apart. Years earlier, Richmond anticipated the federal government would gift the lands to the city, but the Musqueam sought an injunction to prevent the transfer. City officials continued their drive to acquire the lands and on March 31, 2010 completed the purchase of the lands, paying $29.6 million each to the band and Canada Lands Company. But it was a sour deal for Campbell, who along with other band members, sued the city in an effort to reverse the sale and honour the original agreement to develop the land. That lawsuit has been idle since 2010 and is still unresolved. During the 2008 marathon public hearing on the band’s original development deal with Richmond, Campbell urged Richmond council to accept it and push to strip the Garden City lands of its farmland protection. “People have to understand and take it from a First Nations’ perspective, of a territory we have, of the lands that have been taken away from us, of the social, economic problems we have in our communities. I don’t understand why anybody around this table would disagree with that.� At the time, Campbell—the band’s longtime spokesperson—repeatedly stated Musqueam has “been here

for 9,000 years and we’re not going anywhere.� “We’re rich in history, we’re rich in culture, we practise it today. Our languages are coming back, we have our artists, we’re surviving. This agreement, if successful, will only enhance this.� Despite his failed attempts to secure a portion of the Garden City lands, Campbell negotiated two significant deals with senior governments in 2008. An agreement with Victoria gave the band $250 million in public land and cash—including the River Rock Casino Resort property in 2040. With the federal government, Campbell signed a deal that ensured the Musqueam would share in the benefits of hosting the 2010 Winter Games. At a city council meeting Monday, Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie acknowledged Campbell’s passing, saying the city had extensive dealings with the Musqueam “in relation to the Olympic project.� “I think it’s clear that Ernie Campbell was a very strong leader. He was a great advocate for his people and our city council send our condolences to his family and to the entire Musqueam First Nation at this time of great loss.� Musqueam leaders organized a prayer service for Campbell Tuesday at the Musqueam Community Centre in Vancouver. A funeral service is scheduled for today (Wednesday) at 9:30 a.m. at the centre.

Province to hire Massey bridge project advisors by Jeff Nagel Black Press

Rendering of the proposed bridge, which will replace the Massey Tunnel.

Regional board tells province to justify tunnel replacement

The province is poised to start awarding contracts for work related to replacing the George Massey Tunnel with a new bridge. Four requests for proposals were issued this month for technical advi-

sory services for planning, procurement and implementation phases of the promised megaproject. Transportation Minister Todd Stone said the consultants who will be hired to provide engineering, environmental, community relations and other technical advice will help

discussion on funding you have to first determine what you’re building. This could be a $1 billion project. This could be a $3 billion project, depending on the extent of work in addition to the bridge itself.”

by Jeff Nagel Black Press Building a new bridge to replace the George Massey tunnel is critical to reducing congestion on the Highway 99 corridor, Delta Mayor Lois Jackson argued Friday before a skeptical Metro Vancouver board. But she failed to derail a board motion that passed demanding the province prove how the megaproject will respect the regional growth strategy and other regional objectives, like improving air quality and access to public transit. Jackson called the premier’s September announcement a new bridge will be built “long, long overdue” and insisted the corridor is congested because of truck traffic that can’t be put on transit lines. She said congestion has also worsened due to increasing traffic from the U.S., South Surrey/White Rock, the Tsawwassen ferry terminal and said more will come when the Tsawwassen First Nation opens a planned major destination shopping mall. Jackson rejected arguments a new bridge may spur more traffic and pollution. “When you’ve got four miles of traffic sitting their puffing for hours on end I don’t think that’s a good air quality situation,” she said, referring to long lines to get through the tunnel in each direction at peak times. Jackson argued Metro planners failed to understand the justification for the project and wanted the issue referred back to staff to consider studies prepared by Delta. Richmond Coun. Harold Steves said a second tube for transit could easily be dropped in the Fraser River beside the existing tunnel to carry light rail transit from Richmond to Surrey and White Rock. He predicted a rapid transit alternative along Highway 99 will be stalled for a decade or more under the province’s plan. “If you put in a toll bridge for cars they’re not going to want public transit on it until they pay for the bridge.” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said the region will never build its way out of congestion by adding more lanes of road. “It sells well in the suburbs, but the problem is you can’t bring more cars into Vancouver.” The Metro board motion also directs staff to investigate the business plan for the new bridge, the role of the port in the decision and the effects of other Gateway Program infrastructure, like South Fraser Perimeter Road, which will soon be fully opened. Metro directors also called on the TransLink board to give its analysis of the ramifications of expanding the crossing, with an examination of both tolled and non-tolled scenarios. Vancouver Coun. Heather Deal, chair of Metro’s environment and parks committee, said there’s also concern about impacts to Deas Island Regional Park, which would be in the shadow of the new bridge. She said shoreline habitat will be threatened if the channel is dredged to open increased shipping up the Fraser towards Surrey. Deal said it appears that would enable a proposed coal export terminal at Fraser Surrey Docks that Metro has already opposed. Metro’s board also voted to have staff more closely study a proposal from the Port Alberni Port Authority to develop a container port there and send barges up the Fraser River. Jackson doubted the concept would work but other directors see it as offering potential to get more trucks off the region’s roads and move freight on the river without the need for a new bridge or removal of the tunnel.

ing model we’ll use to actually pay for the project.” Asked if an eventual decision to toll the new bridge might not affect its use and should therefore be considered in the design stage, Stone said no. “Before you get into a

EDITORIAL: Garden City options big on green

I

t’s been a long haul, but the fate of the 55-hectare Garden City lands is slowly coming into focus, and green is definitely the theme. While some in the community might be disappointed at the lack of sports fields and playgrounds mentioned in any of the three options, those who believe in preserving farming options will surely be happy. The public will get a chance to view the options during a Thursday, Nov. 7 public open house. The first option reserves 35 acres for agriculture, and includes the addition of multi-purpose community fields and a trail network. The second choice calls for an even larger farm area, with land divided into one-acre parcels for farming and also an extensive trail system. The final option focuses squarely on farming, with its agricultural parcels patterned 45 degrees from the traditional urban grid in an attempt to create a “unique and dynamic space.” There’s been no short-

the fate of the hands is now up to public participation. As with municipal, provincial and federal elections, lots of people

W

ith the B.C. and federal governments once again struggling to climb out of deep operating deficits, it’s a good time for the release of Mark Milke’s book Tax Me, I’m Canadian. An update of the same title published 12 years ago, the book retains the history of taxes in Canada, detailing how Canada’s tax system was initially built to mimic the United States system in the late 19th

century. Beyond the history, it is mostly new material. Included are chapters on the global meltdown of 2009, the surge of pension liabilities as the baby boomers retire and the flawed logic behind the “Occupy” and “Idle No More” protests. Some readers will immediately note that Milke works for the Fraser Institute and was previously B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation. But the book is not just an argument for cutting taxes. It also dismantles persistent myths that income taxes are illegal, and launches a broadside on what Milke calls “Canada’s corporate welfare carnival.” Many people will be able to identify some top names in the government subsidy game: Bombardier, General Motors, even poor old Rolls Royce Canada. Some will also be well aware that our supposedly tight-fisted Conservative federal government has continued to pour out

“regional development” and other funds to every part of the country. But I did not know that Industry Canada grants were handed out to pizza parlours (including the remote pizza-starved village of Kamloops), or to help open gas stations or convenience stores in Kelowna, Vernon and Chilliwack. Milke makes a useful point for B.C. about royalty rates for timber, natural gas and other resources. They are resource rents, and if they are too high the tenants will move out. Reducing them isn’t a subsidy, especially if it leads to big revenue gains as B.C.’s unconventional shale gas incentives have done. On the Occupy movement: The infamous “one per cent,” who in Canada earn $250,000 a year or more, earned 10 per cent of all income and paid 20 per cent of all taxes in 2010. The bottom 73 per cent of tax filers paid just 17 per cent of all taxes. About a third paid no tax

at all. On Idle No More: When Attawapiskat Chief Teresa Spence played to the Ottawa media with her soup strike, former Liberal leader Bob Rae suggested a nearby diamond mine should share more revenue. Milke omits the substantial support and employment that mine provides, and glosses over the misguided blockades that disrupted that and other job-creating enterprises. But he does detail the disastrous effects of passive resource wealth bestowed on impoverished aboriginal communities, and contrasts it with the success stories of reserves that build their own enterprises through hard work. On public sector pensions: Milke notes that historically, public employees traded higher wages for better benefits and job security. Now their wages are generally higher, and taxpayers have to cover their personal pension contributions (as a portion

of those wages) as well as the employer contributions, plus the “defined benefit” payout, which has to be subsidized far beyond what the pension fund can support. On the debt-financed welfare state, there are memorable observations, like this one: “For the record, the generous Quebec welfare state and its ostensibly more progressive model are paid for in part with the taxes of other Canadians; Quebec is merely the North American equivalent of Greece.” The recent B.C. political crisis over adoption of the harmonized sales tax showed that there is too much emotion and too little knowledge about how taxes work. This book is a step towards addressing that. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com Twitter:@ tomfletcherbc E-mail: tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Religion and science are complimentary Editor: Questioning Stephen Harper's degree of funding for science research is a fair discussion point, but to connect this with religious dogma is absurd. Religion and science are perfectly complimentary and any research will bear out the fact that many of the greatest scientific discoveries have come from devout Christians. A few examples and their discoveries include: George Lemaitre (Catholic priest/astronomer who proposed the Big Bang Theory), Francis Collins (devout Christian/director of the Human Genome Project), Louis Pasteur (ardent Christian/ pasteurization, rabies, vaccines), Marconi (Catholic/ Nobel prize,radio), Jerome Lejeune (devout Catholic/geneticist, identified down syndrome), Andre Ampere (devout Catholic/father of electro magnetism), Allesandro Volta (devout Catholic/ first electric battery), Roger Boskovic (Catholic priest/ discoveries on atomic theory). There are so many more examples if one simply googles famous Christian scientists but the writer of the letter unfortunately chose not to do even this but instead preferred to throw out discriminatory anti religious myths and rhetoric. I would suggest that his scientific research on this subject was lacking funding. Patrick Macken Richmond

Sad to see Sears go Editor: Sears’ announcement that it will be closing its Richmond store is sad, but it is part of a trend affecting older style merchants in many urban settings. With Sears announcing it will be closing another bit of Richmonds retail past will disappear, just as it did when each of Zellers, Woodwards, Eatons, the downtown Safeway, and downtown movie theatres each closed in past. Many smaller local stores have also closed too. Many jobs, and a few careers are also lost with each store closing. At the same time, Richmond now has many strong big box retail and grocery stores, including one opening next month, and another chain is also trying to open a Richmond location. Other stores are also interested in Richmond, and there is as much diversity in the local shopping experience as anywhere in the world. While it is sad to see reliable pieces of our past disappear, it happens quite regularly. Therefore it is important for our future to be open to considering new opportunities for businesses to provide careers and jobs in Richmond. Peter Mitchell Richmond

Why proposed Walmart would make Richmond ‘worse in every way’ Editor: I read Melanie Beggs-Murray’s 10 reasons why Walmart doesn’t belong in Richmond (Letters, Oct. 23). She gave the reader compelling reasons to vote out seven of eight Richmond councillors. To place Walmart blight in front of Garden City lands when so many other de-treed, despoiled land is available is reckless. Thank you Melanie for taking your personal time to inform Richmondites why Walmart across from Garden City Lands makes Richmond “worse in every way.” Terri Havill Richmond

Don’t let NIMBYs derail Walmart development Editor: I have added the recent “10 reasons why Walmart doesn’t belong in Richmond” by Melanie BeggsMurray to my top 10 list of most NIMBY letters to the editor. First of all she does not speak for me. She does not speak for any of the people I have spoken too about the development. The fact is we are all looking forward to it. It doesn’t matter what is being built the NIMBYs are out in force writing letters to the editor. I have

lived in Richmond since 1947. You want it go back to the way it used to be? Grab your chain saws and chop down all the trees because they were not here in 1947. Someone stated a few weeks ago that the Walmart development would interfere with the wildlife corridor. The what? Do they think buffalo roamed Lulu Island back in the day? Or my favorite. The new Walmart will destroy the view of the mountains. Daaaahhhh!!! Go stand on the

corner of Alderbridge and Garden City—can you see the mountains? Didn’t think so. So let’s look at BeggsMurray’s letter. 1) “The Walmart anchored centre puts the future of the Garden City Lands at risk.” Why? And what has the ALR to do with this development. It is in a residential area not farmland. 2) “The new worst intersection in Richmond?” Wow! Guess the only thing that we can know for sure is that your car

will not be in your imaginary traffic-clogging jam. Interesting that they don’t have a problem with traffic at the other Walmarts. If there are so many cars that traffic is an issue then I guess a lot more people are for the development than against it. 3) “It eliminates land that was zoned for housing.” Seriously? A revitalized nature strip? It is an overgrown neglected area that is a result of property owners not maintaining it. But I guess the buffalo do need a place to graze. 4) “It is not accessible to transit.” It is not accessible by transit now. You can be sure that when the doors open there will be buses arriving and departing in all directions. You must stop and smell a lot of roses if it

takes you 20 minutes to walk from Lansdowne Station to Garden City and Alderbridge? 5) “It’s not environmentally sustainable.”“They (Walmart) sell junk for the home, junk for the kids to eat, and junk for our landfills” Yes they do, and people buy it, lots of it. Why? Because they roll back the prices. Most of us can’t afford or refuse to pay the prices from the stores where you shop. 6) “Does Richmond need a new Walmart less than a kilometer away from our brand new Target?” Yes, because it creates a competitive market there-by lowering prices. Also it is close enough to be able to walk to both. 7) Walmart is the worst. Wow... where do you get

PRICE DROP!

your information. Ultraminimum wage? Really? I know of minimum wages but never heard of ultra minimum. 8) “There is still plenty of ‘ugly Richmond’ left to go around.” Amazing! Typical NIMBY mentality. 9) “What about Richmond’s other wants? What about better visions?” Oh, ya right. Lets all sit around a table and decide what should be done with Garden City Lands. How about we fill it with the a fore mentioned buffalo. We can build a big fence around it. On the #4 Road side we can build a picnic area so the kids can watch them graze and be one with nature. I am being cynical but I have heard some of the suggestions and to be honest... mine sounds a whole lot better than most of them. 10) “A Walmart anchored centre sets the

How do you know it is not going to be mixed commercial and residential high rise housing. Now, how convenient would that be with a Walmart and Target within a five minute walk? I grew up in Richmond and I still live in Richmond. I have embraced the changes that have made it a vibrant multicultural mosaic. If the letter writers don’t like the new Richmond then move to Surrey. I urge the mayor and council to stop listening to the usual and expected negative NIMBY spin doctors and vote in favour of the Walmart development. Dennis Robertson Richmond

Uncovering the Lower Mainland’s Want in on a secret that’s savings local landlords, realtors and contractors thousands of dollars at a time? Then take a drive to Richmond Wholesale Appliance Centre, near the Richmond Olympic Oval, which is one of this town’s best-kept secrets. And while the storefront at 140-6191 Westminster Hwy. isn’t anything to write home about, it’s what’s inside that has customers repeatedly coming back. Does the idea of saving more than $2,000 outfitting a kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances intrigue you? Co-owner and sales manager Claudia Kolar has been helping

customers save thousands of dollars by supplying them with scratched or dented appliances. In many cases, the scratches and dents are on the back or the side of the appliances, so depending on the design of one’s kitchen, would be completely invisible to the discerning eye of friends and family. For landlords and realtors wanting to refreshen a rental suite, or spruce up a home slated for sale, these appliances can do wonders to update a home and increase its value. A great example is this Stainless kitchen appliance

Small business packs a big punch

f you watch the headlines, you might think that pipelines, LNG and mines are the bread and butter of B.C.’s business community. And in sheer dollars, you’re right: these projects are economic game changers, with the ability to inject huge sums of money into B.C.’s economy. But when it comes to actual employment numbers, there’s another sector writing more paycheques: the small business sector. Small businesses, deÀned as businesses with less than 50 employees, make up 98 per cent of businesses in B.C. and account for a full 56 per cent of privatesector employment in the province and generate nearly one third of B.C.’s GDP. And if 50 employees doesn’t sound “small” to you, dig a little deeper into the numbers and you’ll discover that a full 82 per cent of the small business count is made up of “micro” businesses, with fewer than Àve employees. These small and micro businesses are a critical complement to the bigger players in B.C.’s resourcebased, export-oriented economy. It’s this diversity of players that makes our economy strong. And, like their larger counterparts, small businesses bring unique strengths to B.C. Small business owners add energy, drive, and entrepreneurial spirit to their communities. These entrepreneurs work tirelessly, determined to beat the sobering statistics about how many businesses fail. And if they do fail, more often than not, these entrepreneurs regroup, come up with a better idea, and try again. It is the intent of all Chambers of Commerce to help local businesses grow and prosper and overtime, many micro businesses Áourish, and create additional jobs and revenue, which provides immense beneÀt and spin offs within the community and region they operate. Chair of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, Brian Williams, President of Ashton Service Group, started his business 27 years ago. In the beginning it was just his wife Julie and him, working out of a spare bedroom with one truck. “Working 24 months straight, seven days a week, from 6:30am to midnight every day was par for the course in the early days. And then our world

was turned upside down when I found out I had cancer. It was at this key point in my career, while getting daily treatment; I realized I had to hire additional employees to keep the business going. That experience taught me that I didn’t have to do everything myself and with trust and empowerment of good people, you can succeed; the only barrier preventing growth in the beginning was myself”. Today Brian Williams employs 50 people out of his Richmond based operation and is a signiÀcant job creator in the community. That is a great spirit to have in British Columbia – a spirit of innovation, resourcefulness, and determination. It’s a spirit that helps our province dream big, bite off more than we can chew, and achieve more than we ever thought possible. And it’s a spirit that drives positive, tangible action in our communities. In Richmond alone, there are over 13,000 active business licenses! Richmond is home to a dynamic and growing multicultural business community. Initially a primarily maritime and agriculture based economy, Richmond is now home to a vast variety of sectors including: aviation, retail, tourism, high-tech, and

manufacturing just to name a few. It’s a well-known fact that small businesses create critical jobs in communities. But if you attend local civic events, you might also know this: Small business owners are often some of a community’s most engaged citizens, bringing leadership, common sense and out-of-the-box thinking to community projects and goals. Brian Williams believes, “business people across this city not only care about succeeding at business but they also have a passion to ensure the community Áourishes. A healthy business community and society go hand in hand and they cannot prosper without each other. At Ashton Service Group we encourage all of our employees to give back. Through our recently formed Ashton caring team, aka. ACT - helping people in need, we empower our staff to participate in their community, facilitated by an employer subsidized volunteer program which matches dollars”. Not only do these entrepreneurs Ànd time to build and beautify a community, but they’re often a voice of both reason and vision, encouraging local politicians to spend sustainably, plan for the long term, and take bold, forward-thinking action to build a brighter future.

Sockeyes adhering to the process Young team keeping pace while learning how to win by Don Fennell Sports Editor Judd Lambert is all about the process, and the Richmond Sockeyes are reflecting their coach’s mantra. Just a single point back of the Delta Ice Hawks for the Tom Shaw Conference lead, the Sockeyes (82-1-2) are in familiar territory as one of the top four teams in the league points wise. But Lambert says of greater concern is how they’re playing. “While we’re certainly not upset with our record, we all agree we can improve in several areas,” he says. This view comes on the heels of a pair of victories last week, 5-2 over the Ridge Meadows Flames last Thursday at Minoru Arenas and 6-3 at the North Delta Devils on Saturday. But not simply being satisfied with two points is why the Sockeyes have been the league’s flagship franchise for well over a decade. “I always believe wins and losses

Don Fennell photo Rookie Ayden MacDonald’s 11 goals are third most in the Pacific Junior Hockey League.

with take of themselves,” says Lambert. Three players, who put up big points in the last two games, mirror the mindset. Their success was

largely a result of hard work and good habits. Captain Adam Nishi scored once and had two assists in earning first star honors in Saturday’s win, while rookie Ayden MacDonald used his impressive size (six-footfour and 195 pounds) to earn a pair of goals in each of the outings. And Jackson Waniek, whose rights were acquired Oct. 9 from the Aldergrove Kodiaks for future considerations, earned five points in the two games and appears to be settling in nicely on a line with Cole Plotnikoff (two assists versus North Delta) and John Wesley (three points versus North Delta). “Ayden has been a pleasant surprise who knows how to use his size and reach,” says Lambert. “He gets lots of rebounds and is intelligent enough to put them upstairs from in close.” Richmond hosts North Vancouver Wolf Pack (7-6-0-1) this Thursday at 7 p.m. at Minoru Arenas, less than 24 hours after taking on the Kodiaks (10-4-0-0) Wednesday in Aldergrove.

Rapids back in the pool After some well deserved time off, the Richmond Rapids Swim Club is back in the water and racing. Competition began with two regional level meets last week— one hosted by Simon Fraser Aquatics and attended by the program’s 14-and-unders, the other hosted by the Pacific Sea Wolves and attended by the club’s senior level swimmers. Most of the younger swimmers were in a familiar environment, though it had been months since they had raced. “The focus here was setting or re-setting the tone for competi-

tion,” says Rapids’ coach Drew McClure. “I wanted the swimmers to understand basic expectations, like maintaining technique, racing hard through the finish, and managing their hydration.” The idea was to set habits in place that will continue to build and become more sophisticated as the season progresses. “We think about where we want our athletes to be at the end of July, and then break that down into basics and building blocks,” said head age group coach Dennis Silva. This was also the very first regional meet for several of the 8-10 year olds. These swim-

mers were learning the very basics of competition. “I was looking for the youngest ones to start learning autonomy—little things like watching for their heat and listening to the starter without any help from me or their parents.” The meet was certainly considered successful, not only from the stated learning goals, but from regular time drops from everyone. Two swimmers were able to achieve one of two required standards for major championship meets—Jonathan Wang for AA BC Championships and Samuel Pei for AAA BC Championships.

Female hockey centre stage this weekend Richmond Ravens debuting Pacific Coast rep classic Friday at Richmond Olympic Oval by Don Fennell Sports Editor The inaugural Pacific Coast Rep Hockey Classic this weekend at the Richmond Olympic Oval reflects the Richmond Ravens’ ongoing goal of heightening the awareness and appreciation of female hockey. Featuring the top teams at the Peewee, Bantam and Midget age groups in the province, organizers are also pleased to have attracted the participation of one of the top Bantam programs in Alberta in the Peace Country Storm. And Tony Lindsay, one of the event organizers and head coach of Richmond’s Peewee A team, hopes more elite teams from throughout North America will be attracted to the tournament as it establishes itself. “We feel pretty optimistic, but we’re taking very deliberate and slow steps to ensure it’s a tournament teams are anxious to come to,” says Lindsay, noting teams from such U.S. hockey hotbeds as Illinois and Minnesota have already expressed interest in participating in the future. Reflecting the slow and deliberate approach, only five teams will make up each of the three divisions

at this year’s event. The intent is to ensure all the game are competitive. There’ll also be no shortcuts when it comes to ice time, with every game at least 60 minutes in duration with three 20-minute periods and ice scrapes between the two intermissions. “We want this to be a destination tournament for the top teams to come and challenge each other in a truly elite environment,” says Lindsay. “One of the challenges in female hockey is there aren’t the same number of teams in the local leagues as in boys’ hockey, so the girls’ teams are always looking for opportunities to play different teams and competition. And this being an early-season event, it’s also a chance for them to see how they stack up against other teams and what they have to work on.” MIDGET DIVISION As head coach AJ Sander settles into the seventh season behind the bench of Richmond’s Midget A team, he faces a familiar challenge: how to get this team back to the provincial championships. The Ravens are two-time defending B.C. title holders, and although the playing roster typically changes

quite dramatically from season to season the expectations the team will challenge for supremacy has become a constant. But it’s a challenge Sander embraces, and he’s been able to get the players to buy in as well.

Coming off a victory over Comox’s Vancouver Island Impact at a recent invitational in Kelowna—a team they’ll face again at this weekend’s tournament in Richmond—the 2013-14 edition of the Ravens already seem poised to meet their

first goal of returning the provincial championships which are scheduled to be held next spring in Salmon Arm. But Sander says every chance to participate in a high-level event such as this is welcomed. See Page 22

MARCHING INTO THE PLAYOFFS

From Page 21

“Though we’ve come out of the gate quite well, being a strong team we are always challenged to work even harder,” says Sander. “Others are always trying to defeat us and I think that makes us stronger knowing we have always have to be our best.” Not surprisingly, returning players such as Tamara Wong (who has been a rock on the blue line), forward Kaitlyn Yan and Sabrina Shigeoa (who has played both forward and defense) have been among the team’s top performers early this season. But coach Sander has also been pleased by the contributions of his younger players, notably 15-year-old goalkeeper Harmony Sander who steps up from Bantam after previously playing boys’ hockey in the Richmond minor association. PEEWEE DIVISION After coming up just shy of a provincial championship last season, Tony Lindsay’s Richmond Peewee A team seems poised to take a serious run at the title again in 2013-14. But Lindsay knows nothing is ever certain and this year’s Ravens can expect plenty of tough competition in their quest to finish first at season’s end. That’s why, he says, events like this weekend’s inaugural Pacific Coast Rep Hockey Classic are so valuable. “It’s a good test for us, as it for so many teams, to learn what it means to be considered one of the strongest in the province,” Lindsay says. “We have to learn to be able to come with our best every game to successful. Although we’ve got lots of talent, it’s still a work in progress. We’re still learning how to play with each other and being able to carry out different systems. For the first-year Peewees, they’re learning there is more structure in the games.” Lindsay relies heavily on his leadership team to help relay the message, and this year that includes second-year players Aish Sander, Naomi Choong and Madison Warren. “We’ve really tried to develop a program here where there’s an ex-

Don Fennell photo Richmond’s Peewee A’s hope to learn plenty at this weekend’s Pacific Coast classic.

pectation of how to prepare—for practice and games,” he explains. “We look to our returning players to help the newcomers understand that. But it’s not about them telling the younger players what to do, but rather showing them. You do that by your actions, and you build an amazing culture when your leaders demonstrate all the traits and characteristics you want to see as a coach.” BANTAM DIVISION After coaching an Atom Division team last season, Bobby Scott has stepped up to guide the fortunes of Richmond’s Bantam A Ravens for the 2013-14 campaign. But while

the team shows plenty of promise, injuries and illness has meant there hasn’t been a single game early on when everyone’s been available to play. “In (coaching) for 30-plus years, one of the things I’ve learned is every year is different due to makeup of the team,” says Scott, who is assisted at the bench by Natalie Korenic. “But it’s a journey and it’s getting better every day. We’re trying to get the girls to come together as a family. It’s one of the big things we believe in. We know we’ll (likely) have our work cut out for us again this weekend, but it gives us an opportunity to see who were are and where we need to go to get better.”

A fun fitness challenge

Richmond runners pose before the high school cross-country zone championships.

McMath runners lead path to provincial championships by Don Fennell Sports Editor The R.A. McMath Wildcats stand out as an example of how much fun and success Richmond students can have participating in cross country. And Bob Riddell deserves much of the applause for his tireless work in organizing the sport for local high schoolers. “It’s a tribute to Bob and his time and energy,” says McMath vice-principal Mike Charlton.“The school is very gifted to have him on board for this and for track and field. He’s done an unbelievable job in building up a great tradition and history here.” After nearly sweeping the Richmond Secondary Schools Cross-Country Championships, the Wildcats moved on to the Burnaby/New Westminster/Richmond Zone Championships last week and again showed the strength of the school’s running program. Racing through Burnaby’s Central Park along with other Richmond indi-

viduals and teams, including the up-and-coming Richmond Christian boys’ team, the Wildcats won the girls’ championship and finished third and fourth in the boys’ race. McMath ended up qualifying an impressive 13 runners to this Saturday’s provincial championships in Aldergrove. Also represented at the zones were the A.R. MacNeill Ravens, StevestonLondon Sharks, H.J. Cambie Crusaders, Richmond Colts, Hugh McRoberts Strikers and J.N. Burnett. Breakers The winning girls’ team is made up of Montana Leonard, Dakota Chan, Claire Reynolds, Georgia Booker, Emma Webster, Delaney Booker, Collette Summers, Kate Schmidt, Kiana Maeda, Olivia Rosser. Connor McFadyen, Jacob Loewen, Thaddeus Melaku, Andy Dworschak, Ryan Kamimura, Stephen Brock, Mathias Melaku, Nathan Loewen, Sam Loewen, Gerard Huo, David Queree, and Michael Araki-Young claimed the bronze for McMath.

Wild Things come out for Halloween

itches, trolls and creatures of all kinds came out to play at Wild Things, a Halloween-inspired event put on by the Richmond Nature Park Society last Saturday night.

“We all love this event,” said Kris Bauder, the nature park co-ordinator. More than 1,000 people came out for Wild Things and walked over the park’s bridge and around the boardwalk, meeting various creatures along the way who had stories to tell and songs to sing. Overall, the night was dedicated to celebrating Halloween and its origins. “The basic theme of the event is that Halloween has grown out of stories about nature,” Bauder said. Wild Things has been

put on every year for more than 10 years now, and continues to grow in popularity. “We do have families who come back year to year,” Bauder said. Part of the success of the event is due to the fact that it is accessible. “It’s friendly, people know it is suitable for small children,” Bauder said. “Even our witches are

funny witches, not scary witches,” she said. The East Richmond Community Association joined the event this year, putting on kids activities including face painting and lantern making.
