Walmart mall wins approval from city

Staff Reporter

Stores expected to open in 2016, council opponent calls it one of the worst developments in a decade by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter In a 6-2 vote Monday night, Richmond council approved a SmartCentres plan to build the first Walmart store in Richmond. Civic politicians listened to nearly three hours of debate in council chambers at Richmond City Hall before giving second and third readings to a $150-million Walmart-anchored shopping mall. Central at Garden City will be built on vacant land northeast of the Alderbridge Way and Garden City Road intersection, and stores could be open as soon as summer of 2016. The 359,090-square-foot mall’s Walmart store is expected to have the same floor area as the Queensborough location. Coun. Bill McNulty voted yes, along with Mayor Malcolm Brodie and councillors Linda Barnes, Evelina Halsey-Brandt, Ken Johnston and Derek Dang. See Page 3

Martin van den Hemel photo Julian Piezas and Francis Tolentino were part of the effort at St. Joseph the Worker school that collected 79 balikbayan boxes worth of food, clothing and blankets earmarked for the Philippines in the wake of super typhoon Haiyan.

In a time of crisis, Richmond has shown its true colours. St. Joseph the Worker school principal Paul Fraser said he’s overwhelmed by the outpouring of community support to help those devastated by a super typhoon in the Philippines earlier this month. Fraser said he was initially approached by parent Kelly Ng, and she got the ball rolling. The school quickly organized a collection of non-perishable foods, clothes and blankets, hoping to collect eight large boxes and ship them off to the areas hardest hit by Mother Nature’s wrath. Typhoon Haiyan’s 380 km/h winds killed thousands, left hundreds of thousands homeless, obliterated villages and towns, wiped out farms, left roads impassable, and impacted millions more who were left without water and electricity. The unfolding tragedy moved many locals into action. In addition to the school community at St. Joseph, other individuals, faith groups, community organizations and schools have all jumped on board, and as of Friday afternoon, the number of large balikbayan boxes totalled 79. On Saturday, 57 boxes were shipped out, and another 22 will leave today (Wednesday). See Page 5

Onni’s new bid in council’s hands Rapid growth behind mall approval

Developer already marketing its Bayview Street properties as ‘grocery anchored’ by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter City staff are suggesting elected officials allow Onni to lease its new Steveston properties to a wide range of tenants—instead of just maritime-related businesses. A city council committee considered the recommendation Tuesday. It’s the latest attempt by the Imperial Landing developer to loosen the current restrictive zoning on commercial space in six nearly-finished buildings along Bayview Street east of No. 1 Road. In the last decade Onni has tried repeatedly to change the site’s zoning, approved in 2001, with no success. The properties are part of land that previously belonged to B.C. Packers. Onni’s restrictive “Maritime Mixed Use” space, totalling 59,648 square feet, is largely contained on the ground floors of the buildings, while rental apartments are on upper floors. The zoning allows for uses that include workshops, storage, a fish auction house, laundry and dry cleaning services, boat repair and marine equipment service. According to a staff report from planners Sara Badyal and Terry Crowe, Onni is eyeing a change because those uses simply aren’t viable. “Viability was not achieved because most Maritime

Onni is seeking to rezone its new commercial units in Steveston to allow uses other than those related to the fishing and boating industries.

Mixed Use land uses need to be related to the commercial fishing industry and economical uses have not been found,” the report says. Onni is eyeing uses that include a grocery store, fitness

centre, childcare centre, bank and restaurant. To sweeten the proposal, Onni is pledging to give the city $1.5 million for its leisure facilities fund. In July the developer host-

ed two open houses to win public support. Of 208 feedback forms and letters, 79 per cent were in support, according to the staff report. Another 131 letters to the city showed 76 per cent support. A change in zoning would potentially create up to a dozen potential competitors to Steveston Village merchants. But a consultant hired by the developer found the proposal “should support the economic viability of Steveston Village, and should not have a negative impact,” according to staff. “There has been an increase in Steveston’s population which appears able to support both existing and new commercial uses and services.” Any change in zoning would be subject of a public hearing.

Two pedestrians injured in dark, wet weather Tips for pedestrians • Dress to be seen, by wearing reflective gear to make it easier for drivers to see you • Always make eye contact with drivers • Before stepping off the curb, look left and right for oncoming vehicles and for vehicles turning onto the roadway beside or behind you • Focus your full attention on what’s happening around you. Drivers don’t always stop or obey traffic signals • Be extra cautious at interections • Always cross at designated crosswalks, never mid-block.

Police urge drivers to slow down, and pedestrians to wear reflective clothing by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter An 80-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was struck by a four-door sedan while crossing the street late Monday afternoon at Steveston Highway and Trimaran Gate. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said the man was taken to Vancouver General Hospital where he remains in critical condition in the intensive care unit. Investigators believe both the rain—it was raining heavily at the time—and poor visibility played factors in the crash, which occurred around 5:30 p.m. Within minutes, the bad weath-

er and darkness factored into another pedestrian-involved crash. A 17-year-old boy was struck by a Honda Civic sedan as he was walking along the shoulder of the road near Williams Road and Stilmond Road. Ashton said the boy’s injuries are not life-threatening and he was taken to hospital. But the impact was strong enough to dislodge the boy’s athletic shoe. “Wearing all black is probably not the best idea,” Ashton advised pedestrians. But she said drivers need to take precautions too. “If you can’t see out your front window, then you need to slow down,” she said. “With it being dark so early, we’re concerned that people aren’t adapting to the darkness.” Ashton said pedestrians and motorists need to be extra vigiliant, especially as the amount of daylight dwindles. According to ICBC, there are 86

per cent more crashes where a pedestrian is injured in November and December, compared to July and August. The number of crashes where a pedestrian is injured more than doubles in November and December compared to the summer months. Distracted driving isn’t the only problem at this time of year, according to the Insurance Corporation of B.C. Even though only a quarter of pedestrians surveyed admitted to using their cell phones while walking near roadways, more than 90 per cent of drivers reported often seeing pedestrians using their cell phone while crossing the street, and 83 per cent often seeing pedestrians jaywalking while using their phones. “There’s a clear disconnect between how pedestrians and drivers perceive their own behaviours and what is actually happening on our roads,” said ICBC psychologist John Vavrik.

From Page 1 McNulty, who chairs council’s planning committee, said the city got what it could from SmartCentres, and that taxpayers won’t be “on the hook” for anything. He pointed to Richmond’s rapid growth as a driver for the mall. “We are a very large city now with large city nuances and problems. We are also the most desirable place in British Columbia to live,” he said. “Walmart is just one more of those companies that’s out there that is going to help increase business and help our city grow.” But Coun. Harold Steves, who was joined by Coun. Chak Au in opposition, called the mall “the worst or second worst” development council has dealt with in a decade. Land once designated as environmentally sensitive is being lost, a “proper” buffer for neighbouring farmland is missing from the design and Walmart is too big, he said. “In my opinion this is not a good use of the property. We sent this proposal back and I expected they would reduce the size of the big box building,” he said. “Instead they increased it by 60,000 square feet.” Those who couldn’t get a seat in the packed council The vote chambers found space in a neighbouring room at city •In favour: Mayor hall connected via video link.

A few dozen more views •Opposed: Harold came to council by letter— Steves, Chak Au most opposed, complaining •Absent: Linda of traffic, design and a loss of McPhail natural land and views. Local resident Nancy Trant said the plan hasn’t improved since it was first proposed in 2003, and suggested a smaller mall would better fit with the neighbouring Garden City lands. “It seems to have gone from worse to worse,” she said. “We the people of Richmond—at least some of us—don’t want an ugly big box shopping centre.” Garden City lands defender Jim Wright pitched a new design for the mall that would create a wildlife corridor and preserve views from the future city park on the Garden City lands. “It’s a priceless gift from the past,” he said of the existing views. “Please don’t squander our legacy.” Others welcomed Walmart and other future retailers. One speaker told council he was “tired of driving to Queensborough” for better prices. Another Walmart shopper, Michelle Bron, agreed. “I do feel it would be beneficial to myself and other Richmond residents (who won’t) have to drive all the way to Queensborough,” she said. Richmond Chamber of Commerce chair Brian Williams also spoke in favour, citing positive impacts in jobs, the property tax base and the bottom line for small businesses next to Walmart. “They say on average people will stop maybe two times to smaller places when at the big stores, so they’re going to benefit,” he said. John ter Borg urged council to consider adding an “agricultural screen” to the development to create a natural buffer for neighbouring farmland. Ter Borg, a University of B.C. graduate student, noted a a green edge along Alderbridge Way could work to protect “some of the most fertile soil” in B.C. “Richmond is known as the garden city. This predates our motto as the Island City by Nature. This is because of our culture—our agriculture. This is our legacy, whether we like it or not.” City council agreed it was worth examining, asking staff to review the possibility of a buffer along Alderbridge Way as part of the development permit process—the next step for SmartCentres before construction. Coun. Ken Johnston fired back at critics who accused council of not protecting green space and nature, saying they don’t have to look farther than the Garden City lands—purchased by the city in 2010—to see council’s commitment. “Since I’ve been on council, we’ve done nothing but protect and respect the (Agricultural Land Reserve), our trail system and keeping Richmond green.”

‘I’m so proud to be part of such a community’ From Page 1 “I think the best way to put it, is that it’s a humbling and heartwarming reaffirmation of what a community does in a time of crisis,” Fraser said. “I’m so proud to be part of such a community.” This effort was a true community-wide initiative with many donors telling Fraser they learned of it through The Richmond Review. St. George’s School in Vancouver donated hoodies and sweatshirts, while others simply walked up to give what they could. Fraser said the U-Haul outlet on Shell Road quickly stepped up and donated the truck and gas to transport the boxes to the local LBC Mundial Cargo Corporation, on Jacombs Road, which offered to provide free boxes, shipping and delivery for all goods earmarked for the relief efforts. But the fundraising efforts aren’t over. Two St. Joseph teachers have organized a relief fundraiser for the Shark Club, 10331 St. Edwards Dr., on Friday, Nov. 29. $20 buys a burger and a beer, with proceeds going to the Philippines. St. Joseph also organized a pizza lunch for students this Friday, with the money redirected to the Philippines. Meanwhile, the Richmond Delta Youth Orchestra is organizing a fundraising event on Saturday, Nov. 23, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Richmond Cultural Centre’s performance hall, 7700 Minoru Gate.

EDITORIAL: Weak board sinks BC Ferries

T

he massive cuts to BC Ferries routes, to take effect in April, would likely be a little bit easier to swallow if the BC Ferries board had done the right thing and cut the exorbitant wages and bonuses given to senior management.

As it is, the board instituted a two-year wage freeze and rolled the bonuses into the regular salaries paid to executives. A small portion will be held back, to be earned if performance targets are met. This is such an obvious shell game that even the most naive observer can see through it. These top people will continue to get the same

high salaries they get today. BC Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan makes $563,000. His counterpart on the similar-sized Washington state ferry system makes $166,000. BC Ferries is going through a massive exercise to save about $19 million. There is no question there is a need to reduce some services on lightly-travelled routes. And despite the whining by some people, asking seniors aged 65 and over to pay 50 per cent of the passenger fare Mondays through Thursdays is not a major imposition. Most seniors who live in coastal communities have enough disposable income to make the occasional ferry trip, and they will still be getting a substantial discount over every other traveller. But had the BC Ferries board really grasped the

nettle and made some substantial cuts to the wages of its top managers, a significant amount of money would be saved (it would amount to millions) without a single sailing being cut. The real challenge that the provincial government faces is rooting out the members of the boards who run its Crown corporations, and in the case of BC Ferries, a private corporation owned 100 per cent by the province. It needs board members ready to challenge the CEOs and top managers they are supposed to be keeping watch on. It needs board members who do not blindly accept the status quo, and will look out for taxpayers and consumers. Then the public will be much better served. —Black Press

Two solitudes on B.C. farmland

B.C. Views Tom Fletcher

M

y late father used to say that if he ever won the lottery, he would “farm until it’s all gone.”

It was 1960 when he and my mother pulled up stakes in the Okanagan, where their families had been for generations, and moved north to carve a homestead out of a half section in the Peace River country. So it’s a mainly northern perspective that I bring to the latest debate over B.C.’s agricultural land reserve. A dialogue of the deaf has been going on for decades in B.C., where there are two separate realities in agriculture. The dominant voice is always from the southwest, from the Okanagan to the Fraser Valley to southern Vancouver Island. This is not only B.C.’s most productive land, it’s also the place of greatest population and development pressure, where three million of the province’s four million residents live and more arrive every day. In the rest of the province, except for pockets that are attractive for recreational development, farming is a tough row to hoe. These days, people are more likely to

In the rest of the province, except for pockets that are attractive for recreational development, farming is a tough row to hoe.

be moving away. In our urbanized society, the loudest voices tend to be the least informed, from backyard-chicken hipsters to what I call “drive-by environmentalists,” who like to look out their car windows at green fields as they motor from their subdivisions to big-box stores. The elderly Sikhs and Mexican guest workers bent over in the fields don’t need their lofty lectures on “food security.” Voices from the rest of the province are seldom heard and quickly shouted down, as was the case at the recent Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver. Merritt councillor Mike Goetz pleaded for relief from an Agricultural Land Commission that refuses to release a property that

has “grown nothing but rocks and tumbleweeds for the last 100 years.” Similar property next door was released, but not this parcel, blocking a project for five years in a little town that could use the work and additional tax base. Urban sprawl isn’t a big problem in Merritt, which like many small towns is trying to hang onto its population. Spallumcheen councillor Ed Hanoski described the situation beyond the towns, the real rural B.C. He proposed easing the restrictions on building a second home on farm properties. Currently, farmers can put a mobile home on their property for an elderly or infirm relative, but nothing with a permanent foundation. Once

that relative moves or passes away, the home is supposed to be removed. Hanoski said a sewage system for such a residence costs around $12,000. Add the temporary foundation, skirting, well hookup, power, landscaping, driveway, and a mobile home that will lose its value if it has to be moved, and the property owner takes a loss of $150,000 or more. That’s why the removal rule is routinely ignored in rural B.C., Hanoski said. These second homes are the only rental stock there is, providing modest income for marginal farms, and should be allowed permanent foundations. Motion defeated, after a scolding from a Sunshine Coast delegate about people lusting to build mansions

on farmland. I asked Bill Bennett, the cabinet minister in charge of the latest agricultural land review, about a rumoured proposal to split the province into two zones with different rules. He declined to comment, but described the case of Fort Steele Farms, the East Kootenay community’s only market garden that almost closed because the next generation was initially refused permission for a second home. The two zones approach deserves serious consideration. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com Twitter:@ tomfletcherbc E-mail: tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Lessons from Typhoon Haiyan Editor: The central Philippines, particularly the Visayas region, took the brunt of the destruction wrought by Typhoon Haiyan, which according to meteorological authorities was classified as the strongest typhoon in history. This monster typhoon was packed with a sustained winds of 195 mph and gusts up to 235 mph when it came ashore, bringing 15-foot storm surges in its path. In fact, it was three times the strength of Hurricane Katrina. The aftermath was staggering: seven million people were affected, 600,000 have been made homeless and the death toll is put at 3,600 people and still counting. As I watched the horrifying accounts of this deadly deluge from daily TV broadcast, I can't help but be saddened and cried by the impact of this tragedy of great proportion. The Philippines is my native and original country and I would like to echo and share several points for the readers to ponder. First, the widespread destruction to properties and the loss of thousands of lives in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan has proven again the old adage that nothing is mightier than the power of nature. Industrialized and developed countries have no technology to stop the onslaught of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and cyclones. Third World countries with limited resources could not even accurately forecast the coming of these apocalyptic cyclones, more so,

too weak to defend themselves from the destructive force of these natural disasters. Second, the best and the worst of things always emerge in the face of adversity. Physical, emotional, moral and spiritual endurance are always being tested to the limit especially in the time of tragedy. Organized looting by a band of armed groups were reported by the media. Blaming game, fingerpointing and name-calling were the norm in the country over the slow pace of relief goods distribution. Political gimmickry such as politicians posturing as aid donors with their names boldly printed on each food ration packet definitely irked many of us. These actions, notably to take advantage of the situation are detestable and should be condemned in every possible term. And lastly, a commendation should be accorded to so many countries, international humanitarian organizations, volunteers and emergency agencies who have sent money, food and resources in order to alleviate the sufferings of those countless victims. The people of the Philippines will remember forever with gratitude the generosity and kind disposition you have shown and afforded to us in the time when we need it most. Lost lives cannot be replaced, but your support to survivors can help them pick up the pieces and rebuild their shattered hope. Joe B. Larano Richmond

Patek Philippe watch nets fine for traveller by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A man who made the mistake of not declaring a luxury watch during a previous trip, will have to pay a hefty price as a result. Guo Mai Chen returned to Vancouver International Airport last Feb. 1 after a trip to Shanghai, China. Chen used the automated border clearance kiosk and was referred for a secondary inspection, where he declared nothing. That’s when an officer questioned the Patek Philippe watch he had on his wrist. Chen claimed he’d purchased the watch for 10,000 Euros many years ago, prior to immigrating. But an online search revealed the watch was worth closer to $92,700, and after pressing Chen, he admitted that he had imported the watch without declaring it in May of 2012. The watch was seized with a value for duty of $80,520. By not reporting the watch, he evaded taxes of $7,485.99. Chen pled guilty to duty evasion, and was fined that evaded amount in Richmond provincial court. But in addition, he’ll have to pay a penalty of $36,517 to get the watch back. Depending on the circumstances and the type of goods, people caught importing non-declared goods must pay a fine of between 25 per cent and 80 per cent of the value of the seized good.

T

he Richmond Legion Community Band is celebrating 40 years of bringing music to the community—something its players will do once again at Gateway Theatre this week.

Gateway Theatre will again host the Richmond Legion Community Band’s annual Christmas concert on Nov. 22.

It was Feb. 4, 1973 when 14 enthusiastic musicians turned up for the first rehearsal of the Branch 5 Legion Band—the band’s first name, which paid tribute to its base at the Royal Canadian Legion’s now defunct branch on Westminster Highway in Richmond. Music director Al Sweet first took the baton,

passing it, in 1978, to Bob Mullett, who remains in the role to this day. Some of the band’s most memorable performances have coincided with the opening of landmarks: the Alex Fraser Bridge in 1986, the No. 2 Road Bridge in 1993 and the new Richmond City Hall in 2000. See Page 10

Hospitals, retirement homes and community events—including the Steveston Salmon Festival—have all hosted the band, whose last performance was last week at the Remembrance Day service at the Richmond City Hall cenotaph. No show is bigger, however, than the band’s annual Christmas concert at Gateway Theatre. Weekly practices at Brighouse United Church have helped the band polish its material for the Nov. 22 show, which will also feature the Vancouver Thunderbird Chorus. Band president Larry White, 67, plays timpani (also known as kettledrums) and other percussion. The retired electrical engineer joined the band in 1984. “Music is good therapy,” said White. “It’s a good time. I’ve made some good friends in the band.” The band is looking for new members— both women and men—as current musicians are getting older, said White, who added the average age is “well over 50.” Few are professional musicians, said White. Instead, many members played years ago—perhaps in high school or other bands—but put away their instruments before dusting them off and joining the Richmond Legion Community Band. Next Friday’s Christmas concert will feature a range of music—including a traditional Christmas carol singalong.

Free self-defence class for women offered

PLEASE JOIN US

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Pacific Wave Jiu-jitsu is offering a free selfdefence class on Dec. 1 to women interested in learning personal protection skills. Lori O’Connell, school owner and head instructor, said recent assaults on women at University of B.C. and elsewhere prompted her to offer her Self-Defense for Busy Women class at no charge. O’Connell said she wants to give back to the community by empowering women with a variety of skills. “The vast majority of assaults on women can be prevented through avoidance and de-escalation strategies, but these start with developing awareness of one’s surroundings and confidence in the way women carry themselves, mentally and physically.” The free session is Sunday, Dec. 1 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Pacific Wave Jiu-jitsu, 14012811 Clarke Pl. Food and cash donations to the Richmond Food Bank will be accepted from participants. To register, e-mail info@pacificwavejj.com.

Blundell Centre’s Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut is simply the best Rustam Teja doesn’t mince words when it comes to his store’s chocolates. They are, simply put, the best, made from the finest ingredients sourced worldwide. And his long-term clients would agree. Or at least their tastebuds would. When young children come in, with paper-route change jingling in their pockets, they opt for a sample of Bernard Callebaut from Belgium, rather than the cheaper chocolate offered on nearby grocery store shelves.

Some of his customers come a long way, from Maple Ridge and farther, on their annual trek to Richmond to pick up a box of his

best for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day and Christmas. Teja said you won’t find his store’s chocolates offered anywhere else, unlike the products his competitors sell. In essence, he is the Holt Renfrew of chocolates, he said. Not convinced? Try a sampling. “Once you’ve tasted this, you won’t go back to whatever it is.” Even the employees of one of his top competitors come to Bernard Callebaut, he said.

business | PROFILE

Living Cafe: a conscious dining experience “Food should bring people together, not separate them” according to Amanda Kroetsch of Living Cafe. But the reality of food allergies and personal dietary preferences tend to complicate matters, a story that Amanda Kroetsch and her dad Kevin Kroetsch are all too familiar with. Their solution: Living Cafe, a new eatery in Steveston where the food is both delicious and healthy for you. The new business, which is both gluten-free and peanut free, serves as an opportunity for the Kroetschs to help others regain and maintain their health through delicious, wholesome, nutrient-dense foods. Amanda suffered severe symptoms and constant illness for more than 14 years, a mystery that was finally resolved when she was diagnosed with Celiac. Over the past four years, she’s

returned to vibrant health. Her eatery is the end result of her vision to have a place to dine with family and friends without stressing out about the contents of the food. Kevin was one of 12 children, and brought up on a farm, where they grew their own food and raised their own animals organically. It’s that common-sense knowledge and experience that he brings to the foods they prepare. Living Cafe specializes in raw, vegan, vegetarian and paleo cuisine, and is located at 240-12240 Second Ave. in Steveston. For more information, visit their website at livingcafe.ca or call them at 604-370-5483.

Wildcats outstanding in their field McMath reignites field hockey interest with seventh-place finish at provincials by Don Fennell Sports Editor

Members of the R.A. McMath Wildcats proudly hold up the Carey Cup, symbolic of supremacy in the Vancouver/ Richmond Secondary Schools Field Hockey League. The Wildcats were 6-0 in league play and then blanked Kitsilano 5-0 in the final game for Carey Cup.

They started a Grade 8 goalkeeper. And their other Grade 8 played a prominent role up front. Even their coach was a rookie—at least it was his first year guiding a high school team. But when combined with a dedicated group of seniors, including captain Delanley Booker, the formula spelled success. “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships,” said TJ Sander, elated at the R.A. McMath Wildcats’ seventh-place finish at last weekend’s provincial AAA championships in Burnaby. Much of the reason for the best result in McMath’s history can be traced to one thing—a strong belief in each other. When Sander took over as head coach of the Wildcats this past summer, he inherited a team that had also dominated league play last season. They

also qualified for provincials, finishing 13th. But Sander saw their potential for more, and pushed the players beyond their comfort zones. The result was an even more dominant regular campaign in which they outscored their opponents 35-1 in seven league matches and then rolled past their foes with equal mastery in the zone playoffs, capped by a 5-0 final-game win over Kitsilano. And this year, the Wildcats welcomed the provincials with greater determination too. With Maddie De Giorgio continuing to provide the Wildcats with stellar goalkeeping and fellow Grade 8 Dakota Chan contributing to the offence, McMath began the provincials last Wednesday in fine form. Despite being underdogs as reflected in their being seeded third of four in their qualification pool, the Wildcats won their first round match 2-1 over Port Moody. Then after a lunchtime pep talk from coaches Sander and assistant Kira Carre, the girls found a way to win again, 4-3, over the pool’s top seed Francis Kelsey from Vancouver Island.

McMath’s surprising run continued Thursday morning with a 5-0 shutout of Kelowna, clinching the Wildcats a spot in the top eight draw along with Port Moody. But despite their best efforts, McMath was unable to overcome the talent of their opponents losing 2-0 to a Heritage Woods team sporting several provincial team players and 1-0 to a West Vancouver team reflecting the field hockey hotbed that is the North Shore. But perhaps the truest reflection of McMath’s determination was during its final game of the tournament on Friday. With the weather going from bad to worse through the day and the Wildcats facing a formidable opponent in Charles Best, they managed to win the seventhplace game by an impressive 4-1 count. Dominating from the opening whistle, the Wildcats were awarded a short corner early. Captain Booker let off a blazing shot that went unchallenged to give McMath a 1-0 lead. Chan then converted a wellplaced cross to increase McMath’s lead to 2-0. See Page 18

Field hockey leader honoured Provincial body recognizes Alisa Carey’s volunteer efforts by Don Fennell Sports Editor Modesty is synonymous among Richmond’s first family of field hockey, and the latest to be recognized is no exception. Richmond Field Hockey Club president Alisa Carey, re-elected president of the Richmond Field Hockey Club at its annual general meeting Wednesday, was honoured with a Volunteer Recognition Award by BC Field Hockey at its annual 2013 gala held recently at the Heritage Hall in Vancouver. And true to form, she deflected any praise elsewhere. “This really recognizes the members of the club executive and the many parent volunteers that support the club,� said Carey of the award, which was presented for her vision and tireless work in the club’s annual under-12 girls provincial festival which she launched three years ago. Each year, the event attracts upwards of 500 players and coaches from around B.C. Alisa is the youngest daughter of local field hockey legends Lance and Nancy Carey whose work was instrumental in establishing and fostering field hockey in Richmond. The Carey’s efforts extend further than simply the community level, including high school and provincial programs. And their influence is still

Steady development earned her a chance to play for both Canada’s national junior and senior teams, and her efforts playing for the University of B.C. in the early 2000s helped establish the T-Birds’ current dynasty.

Playing solid field hockey, passing well and maintaining possession, McMath was rewarded with a third goal by Mikayla Weissler. Shortly before the end of the first half Charles Best was awarded a rare penalty stroke to make it 3-1. Best came out fired up to start the second half, but the Wildcats defended fiercely and worked hard in the midfield to keep their opponents from getting any momentum. With continued smart team play and patience, the Wildcats sealed the victory with Chan earning her second goal of the game. Rachel Kwan, Alex Gupana, Ellie Reid, Emma James, Georgia Booker, Harmony Sander, Hayley Trewin, Lauren Shewfelt, Mila Melanidis, and Natasha Rennie were also prominent throughout the season for McMath and key contributors during the zone playoffs and provincials. While McMath will lose five players to graduation, coach Sander notes the nucleus of the team is at the Grade 10 level. Those players will all be in Grade 11 next year, and Sander anticipates theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be even more poised and determined to top the Wildcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; success of 2013.

Sockeyes net three in a row

First-place Delta Ice Hawks in town tonight for junior hockey tilt by Don Fennell Sports Editor

Don Fennell photo Rookie Aaron Oakley stepped up to help the Sockeyes outscore the Wolf Pack 3-2 in double overtime Thursday for their third consecutive win.

With three consecutive wins, Richmond Sockeyes head into Thursday’s date with their nearest rivals, Delta Ice Hawks, on a bit of a roll. But, as always, Sockeyes’ coach Judd Lambert is more concerned about process than stats. He’ll be looking for another solid effort from a young team that is now within three points of first-place Delta (14-5-1-1) and with two games in hand. The Sockeyes (11-3-2-3) can’t afford to rest on their laurels. Even after a 3-2 double overtime win over North Vancouver Wolf Pack in their latest outing here last week, Richmond still enjoys only a single-point lead on the Pack (12-7-1-1) in the tight Tom Shaw Conference. And the two teams are set to face each other on the North Shore this coming Saturday. Former Sockeye Daniel Tait gave the Pack an early 1-0 lead in the first meeting between the teams since his trade to North Vancouver for future consid-

erations on Oct. 19. Trevor Lima tied it for the Sockeyes two minutes later and Nicolas Patey gave Richmond a 2-1 lead 24 seconds after that before Quinton Blois again knotted the score at 13:44 of the first period. There was no further scoring until Lima’s second goal of the game from Jacob Wozney at 1:56 of the second OT period. Richmond kicked off its three-game winning string with a 5-2 win over the IceBreakers in Mission in which Carson Rose, who started the season well for the Sockeyes before being sidelined by injury, scored twice. Fellow rookie Ayden MacDonald also scored twice. The Sockeyes then overcame a 2-0 deficit in Ridge Meadows to douse the Flames 5-3. This Thursday’s game at Minoru Arenas begins at 7 p.m.

Christopher Zills/UMW photo In his sophomore season at the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin, Richmond youth soccer product Declan Rodriguez has helped the Panthers reach the NCAA National Soccer Tournament.

PROTECT YOUR HOME

or BUSINESS

As a youth, Declan Rodriguez scored his share of goals. But the Richmond youth soccer product also learned to help keep the ball out of his own net. It was a lesson that paid off, as he went on to become a member of the Vancouver Whitecaps’ development program and currently star for the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin Panthers. Rodriguez also showed Sunday night in Chicago, during the final for the Horizon League Tournament Championship, his knack for stepping up when it matters most. The former Richmond Madrid player (one of his teammates was fellow Whitecaps’ prospect and national team player Caleb Clarke) provided the insurance marker midway through the second half to assure the Panthers of a spot in the NCAA national tournament, the U.S. equivalent of March Madness in basketball. The Panthers reserved their place as one of 64 teams from across the U.S. with a chance to win the national title following a 2-0 victory over University of Illinois at Chicago. The first round of the College Cup begins this week at campus sites, with the final round set for Dec. 13 and 15 at PPL Park in Philadelphia.

Richmond Sunrise Rotary’s Push-ups for the Kids at Crux Fitness

Plenty of pushups help raise money for Feed-U-Cate

Around Town Amanda Oye

C

rux Fitness echoed with cheers of encouragement at Richmond Sunrise Rotary’s Pushups for the Kids pushup-athon, last Saturday. Twenty participants collected pledges for each pushup they were able to complete in 90 seconds. All of the money raised will assist underprivileged kids in the community by helping keep school breakfast clubs running through the Feed-U-Cate initiative.

Stan Ho, winner of the competitive pushup category.

“It’s one of the things that people tend to neglect in Richmond and lots of first-world countries,” said Minju Chiang, the owner of Crux Fitness and member of the Sunrise Rotary club. There are kids in the community who go to school on an empty stomach and it is difficult for them to

concentrate, he said. “They are never able to break the cycle of poverty.” When Chiang approached the Rotary Club about putting together a fundraiser, a fellow member introduced him to Glenn Kishi, former district administrator for the Richmond School Board, who started the Feed-U-Cate program. “When you talk to him you can see his vision, his passion,” Chiang said. The goal is to establish the means to ensure the long term success of breakfast programs in elementary schools. “We want to raise money to create a sustainable program,” Chiang said. Amanda Oye covers the social scene for The Richmond Review. Her column appears every Wednesday. She may be reached at amanda.oye@ telus.net.
