Fight against rats is a ‘never-ending battle’ “As soon as they’re dead, another stampede of rats come.” — Vince Campolongo

Homeowner says attempts to control growing rat population have failed by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter In the last few years, Vince Campolongo has served up neighbourhood rats an estimated 400 bags of poison. The unwanted rodents, he said, have eaten it all. “As soon as they’re dead, another stampede of rats come,” he said. “It’s a never-ending battle.” Campolongo, 40, wants to raise awareness of a rat population he believes is growing in Richmond. Since moving into the neighbourhood of Gilbert Road and Steveston Highway over 20 years ago, the ballroom dance teacher has been witnessing more vermin activity. The situation is just as bad in another Richmond neighbourhood where he owns property. The nocturnal creatures have feasted on his backyard grapes, tomatoes, figs and peppers. Traps and bait stations do little to make a dent in the population, and his father is now experimenting with a homemade rat-drowning trap. “We have been using the same tomato seeds every year for 40 years. In our family to have a garden is part of out lives. If things stays like this I might not be able to do so much longer,” Campolongo told The Richmond Review. Friends have also had plenty of rat encounters, he said, including one whose car was infiltrated by a rodent that gained access through an air intake and chewed its way through the dashboard, gnawing on the backseat.

Matthew Hoekstra photo Vince Campolongo has tried bait stations, rat traps and poison in an unsuccessful bid to eliminate rats.

Getting in the way of their control, he said, are people inadvertently feeding them with bird feeders and those who even appear fond of the critters. “A lot of people are friends with rats. They don’t want to kill them, to the point where they’re actually feeding them—intentionally or unintentionally, I don’t know.” Kevin Lee, owner-operator of Richmond Pest Management, has offered pest control in Richmond for 23 years. He’s noticed the rat population grow, and said favourable winters are a big factor. “In previous years when it’s a nice cold, frosty winter, only the hardiest members of the litter would survive. But with our winters being so mild recently, everything that’s being born is surviving.”

A lack of natural predators, food availability and house demolitions that encourage rats to move around are other factors supporting Richmond’s rat population. Lee said homeowners can control rats by eliminating outside clutter and ensuring their structures are free of cracks and crevices that rodents use to gain access. “When the weather gets colder like this, they all want to duck inside somewhere warm, like most animals.” Another key, said Lee, is to reduce available food sources. “Unfortunately when you’re growing your own fruits and vegetables, whatever you don’t harvest for yourself the animals will get to.” Richmond Health Services provides rodent control services on

Merry as Christm

behalf of the City of Richmond. Health officials can help homeowners identify problem areas, such as food sources or harbourage areas. If those areas are taken care of, officials can provide bait stations loaded with poison—as long as the homeowner signs a liability waiver—or traps. “We don’t want to be seen as a pest control company,” said Dalton Cross of Richmond Health Services. “We do this program more to help the homeowner bring it under control. The other component is education, and in some cases enforcement of the (health protection) bylaw.” Cross said Richmond’s rat populations have been “quite consistent” over the years, but said rats are always looking for a meal. If they find a regu-

lar food source, such as a vegetable garden, they’ll look to nest nearby. “If people are having problems with rats then they should...take some sort of control measures to keep the rodents out. That’s sometimes easier said than done,” he said. “A homeowner oftentimes has to decide what they wish to do on their property, (but) we would never require a person to remove a vegetable garden.” Restaurateurs know all too well the attraction rats have to food. So far this year, Vancouver Coastal Health has temporarily shut the doors on seven Richmond restaurants for pest infestations. In 2012, just two local restaurants were ordered closed. In 2011, health authorities issued orders for nine restaurant closures for pest infestations. According to the B.C. Ministry of Environment, problem rodents are three introduced species that came with Europeans settling in North America: the house mouse, Norway rat and black rat. All can transmit diseases, damage buildings and even start fires by gnawing on wiring. Norway rats, which have up to seven litters per year of eight to 12 pups per litter, usually live at ground level, in crawl spaces and in burrows around buildings. Black rats, also called roof rats, nest in ceilings and attics. The ministry suggests using poison as a last resort. Some types are effective after a single dose, while others, such as warfarin, require multiple doses. “In areas where warfarin has been used extensively, particularly in cities, it is useless because rat populations have become resistant to it,” according to the ministry’s website.

Terrific turnout at Christmas Fund drive-thru Locals donated toys and cash at Lansdowne Centre fundraiser by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It was another terrific turnout at Thursday’s Richmond Christmas Fund drive-thru event at Lansdowne Centre which saw locals dropping off gifts and cash that will help make the holidays merrier for less fortunate local families. Christmas fund chair Wayne Duzita said he was delighted that locals once again displayed their tremendous generosity, with donors receiving muffins and steaming hot coffee courtesy McDonald’s and Van Houtte as a token of appreciation from event sponsors. Three Nurses Next Door cars showed up in tandem to show their community spirit, while Richmond-based Ideon Packaging backed in one of their big trucks to reveal a bounty of unwrapped gifts that had volunteers buzzing. Dozens of volunteers started accepting gifts at 6 a.m. Thursday, braving the bitter overnight cold, only to be greeted at dawn by clear blue skies that served as the pictureperfect backdrop for the fundraiser. Richmond firefighters chipped in as well, with one of its ladder trucks stretching high into the sky, helping signal the event to the nearby community. The third annual fundraiser collects muchneeded cash and toys that will benefit some 2,000 low-income Richmond residents. Lansdowne Centre, which served as the event’s host, will be matching donations up to a maximum of $5,000. Other event partners included Volunteer Richmond, 103.5 QM/FM, the City of Richmond, Richmond Chamber of Commerce, Great Events Vancouver and Ashton Service Group. Every person registered for the Richmond Christmas Fund will receive a grocery voucher, and some 1,000 children under the age of 15 will receive a toy or gift card donated by the program.

Richmond’s generosity shines in aftermath of Philippines typhoon Thousands of boxes with relief supplies, tens of thousands of dollars earmarked for survivors of Super Typhoon Haiyan by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Local community organizations have been doing an impressive job of responding to the desperate call for help from the Philippines in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan. The storm, described by weather experts as the strongest-ever recorded to make landfall, left more than 5,000 people dead, hundreds of

thousands of others homeless, and millions without power and water. Ronaldo Dulay, from LBC Mundial Cargo Corporation, a Richmondbased cargo firm on Jacombs Road, said his warehouse is nearly bursting through the roof with donations. “We’re just super overwhelmed,” said Dulay, his voice cracking. “Wow, what a response. I’m glad to be a Filipino Canadian and I thank Canada. It’s the first time in my 68 years that I’ve seen this.” Dulay said that five 40-foot-long sea containers have been filled with boxes containing solely relief donations in the form of non-perishable foods, clothing and blankets. That’s nearly 2,000 boxes in all, and they’re still coming in. Dulay said he’s been inundated with a couple of hundred e-mails from people wanting to help, with the vast majority having learned

about the effort through the pages of The Richmond Review, which featured a front-page story about LBC’s offer to provide free boxes, shipping and delivery through its foundation in the Philippines. The Richmond Chinese Community Society’s fundraising dinner on Monday at the Continental Seafood restaurant on Cambie Road raised some $17,500, mainly through the sale of dinner tickets, a silent auction, charity singing and individual donations. The dinner was presented in partnership with the Filipino Friends in Richmond, the Vancouver Diamond Lions Club, Vancouver Metropolitan Lions Club and Vancouver South Lions Club. A Saturday afternoon fundraising luncheon organized by the Richmond Mandarin Lions Club, raised an additional $10,000. Club secretary Helen Quan said

nearly 200 people showed up for the luncheon, with proceeds raised through the sale of event tickets, private donations, and an auction of paintings. The two events raised a combined $27,500, funds that will be matched by the federal government, meaning the total that will be sent to the Philippines will be more than $55,000. Lot Ramirez, executive director of the Filipinos in Richmond Support Team, raised nearly $9,000 during a two-day fundraiser at the Real Canadian Superstore on No. 3 Road. Those funds will be earmarked for the Canadian Red Cross’ relief efforts in the Philippines. “The customers at Superstore were very generous and sympathetic towards the victims of the typhoon. Many donated and one thing we can vouch for is their absolute generos-

ity and kindness to look beyond their own needs and realize the plight of those suffering in the Philippines,” said Ramirez, who also praised the Real Canadian Superstore for accommodating them on such short notice. According to Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada, as of Nov. 20, some $19.6 million has been contributed by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities. That figure will be matched by Ottawa for a total that’s nearing $40 million. The federal government recently announced that it has extended its deadline for matching the donations made by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities for the Philippines relief effort until Dec. 23.

MLA backs the sale of booze in grocery stores

Better Grades Happier Kids Grade 1 - 12 It can start happening today! With Oxford’s personalized programs and low teacher-student ratio, your child will see results almost immediately. - Improved ConÀdence - Higher Self-Esteem

by Tom Fletcher Black Press The MLA in charge of the B.C. government’s liquor policy review is recommending alcohol sales within grocery stores, using the “store within a store” model in place in other provinces. Richmond Steveston MLA John Yap announced three of his recommendations Thursday, including the idea that a separate staffed area should handle alcohol sales. He also called for no increase to the 731 private store licences that are active now, and no sales in convenience stores other than those already designated as rural agency stores. Yap’s full report has more than 70 recommendations, but it won’t be released until the new year after cabinet has considered it. Liquor in grocery stores was by far the most popular topic during his public consultation, which is why only those recommendations are being made public now, he said. NDP liquor and gaming critic Shane Simpson said Yap has promoted the popular idea repeatedly, and Thursday’s announcement appears “cobbled together” to distract attention from BC Hydro rate hikes and B.C.’s dismal job creation performance than it is about liquor sales. “It’s been released with no supporting evidence as to how you do this,” Simpson said. “Who gets these stores? If there’s really a moratorium on new licences, does this mean that somebody who has a 10,000 square foot private store today is going to be told you have to give that up to get 1,000 square feet in a

Safeway? I don’t think that’s going to happen.” The Alliance of Beverage Licensees, representing private liquor stores, questioned Yap’s assertion that the change would create jobs and increase convenience. “There are very few places around the province you will not find a liquor store already located within 100 metres of a grocery store, and having a separate liquor checkout inside a grocery store will not improve convenience,” said Ian Baillie, executive director of the alliance. The alliance is running a radio ad campaign saying its 10,000 employees’ jobs are at risk, and putting alcohol in grocery stores increases the chance that young people can obtain booze.

PechaKucha Night centres on transportation Richmond’s fourth PechaKucha Night tonight (Friday) will transport its audience through thought-provoking presentations on planes, trains and automobiles at Richmond Cultural Centre. The theme will focus on how man-made inventions and innovations in public and private realms of transportation systems have shaped cities. Richmond has experienced a vast level of transportation growth and development over the years—moving from historic tram lines to the Vancouver International Airport and the Canada Line. In addition, our city is characterized by an urban landscape that owes much of its design to the automobile. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of chit chat, the PechaKucha presentation format is simple— invited speakers will present 20 pictures for 20 seconds each while speaking quickly about the photos as they advance. Speakers include city staff, designers and transportation experts. This event takes place from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at 7700 Minoru Gate.

Drunk Driving is No Joke THE ROAD RULES www.roadrules.ca

Cedric Hughes

Barrister & Solicitor

mpaired driving is one of the oldest criminal code offences relating to operating a motor vehicle, but the social stigma that now attaches to such behaviour is a relatively recent development. It may be hard to believe that announcing ‘one for the road’ was once considered a clever remark. Today, social media commentary is more along the line of: ““Isn’t drunk driving hilarious?” said no one ever.” The effort to achieve this change has been multi-pronged and persistent, even in the face of the textbook tragedies that still happen too frequently to allow for anything but ongoing vigilance. The professional upholders of the law have done and continue to do what they must. Researchers and health care professionals— from emergency responders to medical specialists—likewise. The families of countless victims have organized and lobbied and from these efforts have grown mature and ever-more sophisticated advocacy groups. Still, statistics published by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers), one of the most high profile of such groups, state that, on average, “4 people are killed and 175 people are injured in Canada every day in impairment-related crashes.” Against the trend, the Mayor of Toronto has for the past short while been both defending his own such misbehaviour and making a joke of it. When responding to allegations from former staffers in court documents, in carefully parsed statements he told reporters that he has driven after consuming alcohol on

more than one occasion: “I might have had some drinks and driven” but to the CBC “I have never been drunk and driven.” The Mayor prefaced his comments to the CBC with, as one media personality called it “an appeal to no standards” saying “all of us have done this.” Then, at the November 18th Toronto City Council meeting in which his mayoral powers were transferred to the Deputy Mayor, he reportedly pantomimed drinking and driving in the direction of a fellow councilor who had been cautioned by the police. The antics of Toronto’s Mayor with respect to this particular behaviour are deeply disrespectful of the considerable efforts made by so many to change our thinking about drinking and driving, and indeed of the victims killed or maimed by such willfully risky and dangerous behaviour. A public figure who so breezily and brazenly challenges and defies such a fledgling cultural norm cannot help but undermine it, no matter whether he from time to time happens to “say it right.” It is also disturbing to see how the Mayor’s admitted drug use and out-ofbounds profanity have overshadowed the commentary on drinking and driving issues. Meanwhile, on November 5th, down the street from Toronto’s City Hall, the CN Tower’s new lighting system designed to enhance its structure from bottom to top while also publicizing recognized causes shone red in honour of MADD Canada’s Red Ribbon Campaign. This is an annual awareness campaign that runs from now until January 6th, 2014. MADD Canada Chapters and community leaders will be handing out red ribbons and educational material to “remind Canadians that they have the power to prevent impaired driving.”

Report Cards Shouldn’t Be a Source of Stress! The first report card of the year is an important indicator of your child’s progress, but along with it may come surprising and even unwelcome news. Poor grades are a source of stress and worry for parents, and to add to this, changing expectations and reporting standards mean that report cards are often filled with comments that parents find difficult to interpret. While a report card serves as only a single snapshot of a child’s progress up to a given point and does not offer the complete picture of a child’s potential, it often foretells things to come. If there are any issues with poor grades, Seema Ahluwalia of Oxford Learning Centre in Richmond recommends that parents take action now. “We need to remember that there is plenty of time left in

the school year to get back on track,” says Seema. Founded in 1984, Oxford Learning uses innovative approaches to learning that have helped thousands of students to reach their educational goals. Customized programs based on the science of cognitive development help children to develop the skills that they need to succeed in school while they develop the confidence that they need to succeed in life. Do you have questions about your child’s report card? Parents can contact Oxford Learning Centre at 604-233-5566 for more information. They can also visit the centre at 200 – 7380 Westminster Hwy (near Minoru) for wonderful tips and programs to help their kids achieve their goals.

Mice closed restaurant for three days Steveston Seafood House on Moncton Street was closed down for three days last weekend after a routine inspection found a mouse infestation and unsanitary conditions. Last Thursday, a Vancouver Coastal Health Authority inspector came for a routine check of the eatery, at 3951 Moncton St., and noted an accumulation of mouse droppings were found in several areas of the restaurant. The inspector ordered that a pest control firm be hired, that the contaminated food be discarded and that the infested areas get a proper cleaning and sanitizing. During a follow-up inspection on Friday, there were still issues, namely mouse droppings in several areas of the restaurant. The restaurant was permitted to re-open on Monday after a third inspection, which found no mice activity and that other issues had been addressed.

Shine up your ride and head on out to Steveston this weekend for a Classic and Custom Car Cruise. The proud owners of 20 definitive vehicles of the past, from hot rods and Corvettes to vintage cars and trucks, have already signed up to wind their way through the seven streets that make up the historic downtown village. They’ll gather for this Sunday’s (Dec. 1) afternoon cruise near the Gulf of Georgia Cannery at 12:15 p.m. sharp, and wind up back behind the Buck and Ear Bar and Grill where they’ll be parked until 2:30 p.m. The Steveston Merchants Association is adding the classic car cruise to its annual pre-Christmas festivities which includes a farmer’s market and, apparently, a visit from Santa Claus. There will also be horse and carriage rides on Bayview Street. Doug Harder, who is organizing the Classic and Custom Car Cruise, says the car owners and public at large are being encouraged to bring unwrapped toys and gifts, or to donate money to the Richmond Christmas Fund. He notes that many of the entries are owned by local residents including Richmond Lions Club executive member Randy Scherk, who is entering his 1980 Chev C10 pickup truck. Scherk has been a member of the Lions Club for 24 years and is the chairperson of the popular Sockeye Car Show every June 1 in Steveston. Scherk remembers at time when the Lions Club used to hold a parade in Steveston just a few days before Christmas, so he’s excited the cruise has been revived. Another Richmond entry is the popular 1964 Mustang Convertible, painted red of course, owned by Tangerine Twiss. Harder notes that Twiss has won several people’s choice awards with this beauty.  And one of the most travelled and photographed cars in North America is also scheduled to make an appearance. Tevie Smith’s Termite Taxi, 1947 Chrysler Town and Country Coupe, has been on tours throughout Mexico, the U.S. and Canada from one coast to the other.  Last year, Smith went on the Great Lakes Cruise, which was a tour of seven cities in Canada and the U.S. in seven days with a separate car show at every stop. Prizes will be awarded for best decorated car, truck and commercial entry.

EDITORIAL: A time for giving

T

here may not be snow on the ground, but Christmas is definitely in the air.

You may have taken advantage of the recent dry spell to put up decorative lights. Santa’s helpers are now ensconced at local malls, and the hype for seasonal sales is in full swing. It’s hard to escape the commercial trappings of Christmas. Nor should we. Livelihoods depend on it. But amidst the hustle and bustle of the next month, it’s important to take some time out, and reach out to those who don’t have the means to indulge, who can’t afford to get

their kids the latest toy sensation, who don’t have proper winter coats in their closets, who can’t put a holiday feast on their dinner table or may not even have a home to keep them warm. There’s no shortage of groups and organizations who work hard all year to help make life a little easier for people who are struggling. Those struggles are magnified during the holiday season, with all the expectations it brings. For those of us hustling from store to store, fulfilling wish lists, it takes but a moment to drop some spare change into the Salvation Army red kettle at the front door, or to drop

a winter coat, mittens or hats at a business holding a coat drive, or to place a few cans of hearty soup in the Richmond Food Bank box at the grocery store. Better yet, pitch in by volunteering some time and energy to those worthy groups. They’re busy this time of year, and would likely appreciate the help. Or pledge to make an effort to help out through the year. Need doesn’t go by dates on the calendar. They’re small gestures, but for those on the receiving end, they’re blessings. And isn’t that what Christmas is all about? – Black Press

Visions of Richmond without the ALR

Green Scene Colin Dring

I

magine for a moment our city of Richmond in the 1970s.

Imagine that the legislation of the Agricultural Land Commission Act was never passed. Imagine what this city would look like. Imagine what it would be like to live here. Anyone who has been along the north or south arms of the Fraser would be travelling through high-end real estate properties on the river’s edge. Gone are the migratory birds, the sand flats, and the folks who come from all over the region to fish, to bike, run or walk. Residential properties are packed, spreading side-by-side, watching the tankers go past. All of Richmond would be developed with suburban, cookie-cutter style residences, sprawling from each edge of the island in winding convoluted culde-sacs, with houses filling the property boundaries. Population would have doubled or even tripled over that time. Imagine 400,000 people living in Richmond. Our days of cheap food would be over, as by 2008 food shortages in the United States and in China would have significantly impacted our ability to

Cranberry fields in Richmond. Richmond would look a lot different without the Agricultural Land Reserve.

import foods. Sedentary lifestyles would become normal as people commute to work and spend longer hours in traffic. Liveability, health, recreation - all diminished. Socializing and neighbourhood connection would be even worse. Social isolation would be normal among seniors and new immigrants trapped in their houses and unable to get to their services and support networks due to a poor and inefficient public transit system. The wildlife in our area would be impacted as habitats for birds, plants, and animals are all given over to housing and commercial developments. The paving-over of natural landscapes would lead to increased water runoff, flooding of streets over the rainy season, and increased costs on taxpayers for road repairs and for expanded sewage and storm-water infrastructure. The loss of vegetation and soil would generate even more greenhouse

All of Richmond would be developed with suburban, cookie-cutter style residences, sprawling from each edge of the island in winding convoluted cul-de-sacs, with houses filling the property boundaries. Population would have doubled or even tripled over that time. Imagine 400,000 people living in Richmond. gases that would further contribute to global climate change. Farmers, hundreds of them, would no longer be employed. Businesses that relied on this fresh produce would go quickly by the wayside, meaning no more local greengrocers, no more processing facilities, and no more jobs for many Richmond residents. This vision of a Richmond without an ALR should be held close to our public consciousness. It is the right of all humans to have food. As it is, our food supply relies on imports and contains foods that have travelled hundreds,

sometimes thousands of miles, to get to the grocery shelves. We will need to consider where our food supplies would come from in the event of an emergency. Grocery stores throughout the city only have 3 to 4 days of fresh food stockpiled. If there were to be an emergency situation, such as in the Philippines, having a strong local food system would help us recover more easily. It is within our best interests to address this vulnerability to our food supply. It has been well documented that when other industries fail, agriculture and

associated food economies continue to survive and if the conditions are right, to thrive. Conserving and protecting our agricultural lands is of paramount importance. Of additional importance, and perhaps just as significant, is enabling farmers to access farmland to grow food while achieving equitable returns on their hard work. The average Canadian spends a paltry 11-12 per cent of their disposable income on food. Much of that is spent in restaurants and fast-food outlets. This is the lowest percentage in the world. We can do much better, but we will find that difficult if the ALR disappears. Colin Dring is executive director of the Richmond Food Security Society, which works to ensure that all people in the community have access to safe, nutritious, culturally appropriate foods that strengthen our environment and society.

Editor: I’ve been following the reports on child poverty in British Columbia (and yes, I have contributed financially in the past) and I am still left with one question: Where are the fathers and the associated required child support? Are these mysterious fathers dead, out of country, hiding from court orders, whereabouts unknown, on welfare themselves, or simply fathers unknown? If the subject ladies cannot afford to track down deadbeats, then my tax dollars would be more than properly utilized in order to assist. Food banks are an intern situation at best, in order to assist those in need. Let’s refocus and identify the real ones, and hold them accountable. Robert Randall Richmond

And at the weekends it does my heart good to see the local fields filled to capacity by young people of all ages who out of loyalty to their team turnout in the worst of weather to participate in the greatest game on Earth.

Editor: I feel for the families of the latest tragedies on Richmond roads. What we don’t seem to face up to is the fact that our roads seem to set their own speed limits. Steveston Highway is a free-for-all, with the norm being 70 km/h and not the posted 50 km/h. The secondary routes such as Francis, Williams and Blundell roads are no better with speeds far exceeding posted maximums. Pedestrians are no better as they are consumed by what’s on their phones or iPods and don’t even give a second look to the oncoming traffic. What is needed is a comprehensive traffic plan in which our local RCMP need to target speeders, inattentive pedestrians and other traffic violators on a full-time basis. A couple of traffic blitzes a year or the occasional fly the flag traffic stop just doesn’t cut it anymore. How many more people have to die in Richmond before we as a city stand up and say enough is enough? D B Neil Richmond

Making financial decisions and managing money for long-term goals may seem like a far away problem for most high school students. But starting off on the wrong foot with money after graduation may prove disastrous for some. In order to be confident with managing money, youth must first be educated in that subject area so that they are able to create sound financial decisions in the future. The Young Investor Program, a three-month weekend program for high school students from Grade 10 to 12, is focused on teaching financial literacy topics through a series of workshops. It was co-founded by Richmond brothers Rohit and Akaash Bali, both students of the University of B.C.’s Sauder School of Business. “Learning about financial literacy is important at a young age because it will give students the foundation they need to make informed financial decisions in the future,” Akaash Bali said. “Whether it is for buying a new iPad, a car, or even a house, learning about financial literacy early will help students be smart with their money and will certainly reduce the chances of them being in debt later in life.” The program is sponsored by G&F Financial Group, and will be held at Sauder School of Business at the University of BC. The six workshops within the program cover topics including stocks, entrepreneurship, insurance, tax, types of investments, and credit and debit. Because most of the topics can be very broad, The Young Investor Program focuses on the aspects most applicable to the age group. Students will learn through interactive workshops, speaker series, and case studies, while also being able to network with business professionals. The program is launching in January 2014, but the application process has already started, with the final deadline on Dec. 2.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Driveway goes Hollywood!

Zack Spencer reveals what turned his head week with a visit to the glitzy 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Alexandra Straub looks at what’s cool, Bob McHugh goes green and Keith Morgan sneaks a peek at a racy compact concept. Check out the full script at drivewayBC.ca

LA-LA Land auto extravaganza LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Auto Show is full of eye-popping sights and some even include cars! It’s not difficult to have your head turned but it is a challenge to pick one’s top picks but I’m for the challenge. Nissan GT-R Nismo Nissan stole the show with not only one of the fastest cars in the world but the fastest man in the world. Olympic gold medalist and world record holder Usain Bolt was on hand as Nissan’s Director of Excitement. Usain was clearly taken with the new GT-R Nismo, there were also promises to get him one to replace his gold coloured GT-R. Power has been pumped up to 600hp taking this new Nismo version to 100 km/h in just two seconds. Look for the new GT-R in the spring of 2014. I suspect Usain will get his a bit earlier. Chevrolet Colorado The mid-size pickup truck market has been all but abandoned by the domestic automakers over the last few years leaving this category entirely to Toyota and Nissan with the Tacoma and Frontier trucks. Wait until next year and the choice will include the all-new Colorado from Chevrolet. Building off the success of the all-new full-size Silverado, the engineers have taken the same approach to this new truck. On the economy front, eventually there will be three engines to choose from. Out of gate, there is the base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.6L V6. Subaru WRX Fans of the Subaru WRX will be very excited about the arrival of an all-new car but maybe a bit disappointed that this production model

doesn’t look very much little the sleek and sexy concept that was unveiled earlier this year. It should prove to be a capable car thanks to an all-new direct injection 2.0L 4-cylinder putting out 268hp and matched to the first 6-speed in the WRX. Subaru Legacy Concept A head Zack Spencer turning design that my sources tell me looks a lot like the production car. The metallic, almost chrome looking paint, certainly helps to make the car pop but the bold front grille and macho stance could very well be included in the final version. Lincoln MKC Lincoln has a long and distinguished history as an American premium brand but over the last few decades, it has been an extension of existing Ford products using different badging and trim. There is now a long-term plan to resurrect the Lincoln brand with all-new vehicle that use some Ford components but are developed separately from the main Ford line of products. The compact crossover MKC shares a platform with the Ford Escape but has been designed and engineered to be a very different car. The design, other than the trademark Lincoln grille is very European and the back wrap-around hatch is maybe Audi-inspired. Standard in Canada will be all-wheel-drive and adaptive suspension, matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

BMW 4 Series Cabriolet BMW has changed its naming: the 3 Series is now the sedan only while the coupe and convertible version are now called 4 Series. The all-new cabriolet is wider and features a new three-piece retractable hardtop and for the first time X-Drive AWD is now available on the convertible models. Interior refinements include a new neck warmer to that blows a steady stream of warm air on the front passengers neck and shoulders, helping to elongate the convertible season. Porsche Macan This small SUV is based on the same platform as the Audi Q5. This lower, sleeker and much more aggressive Macan will attract a lot of attention based purely on looks. Porsche made it very clear that this is not juts a Porsche in name but also in performance. Look for the Macan coming next year. Jaguar F-Type Jaguar made a big splash with the Jaguar F-Type convertible this year and next year we look forward to the coupe version, a dynamite looking coupe with a stunning silhouette and improved dynamics thanks to a stiffer body. The body of the car is built with extensive use of aluminum to produce the stiffest Jaguar ever made. This is one heart-pounding coupe I cannot wait to try.

Giving warms the heart. Donating a coat can warm two at a time. Black Press is collecting coats for kids in support of the Greater Vancouver Builder’s Associations’ 17th Annual Coats for Kids Campaign to be held Nov 19 - Dec 7. Last year over 3000 coats were collected by the GVHBA members for distribution by the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau and other agencies.

e’s the artistic boss of Richmond’s only professional theatre—and next week he’ll be crowned king. Jovanni Sy is playing the leading role of King of Siam in The King and I, opening at Gateway Theatre Dec. 6.

Sy’s titles, along with the fact he’s acted in the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical twice before, surely must be going to his head. Right? “I was a bit nervous going into it,” said director Chris McGregor in an interview. “Is he going to allow me to direct the show and my vision?” Much to the chagrin of arts

his bachelor’s degree in drama. After a long theatre career, he went back to school to learn more about the art. Earning his master’s of fine arts in directing from University of B.C. in 2009 allowed him to hone his directing skills. McGregor’s own theatre company, Theatre Bagger, has produced many contemporary works, with a more recent focus on theatre for young audiences. With a 1951 Broadway debut, The King and I is far from modern, but the age-old book and its themes of struggle in family and politics are still poignant today. In Siam, there’s worry about an invasion and economic collapse, things McGregor said America is concerned with today.

“They’re worried about losing the empire they’ve created—exactly what the king is going through. He’s trying to keep everything at bay so he can continue to keep his kingdom, or society, alive and well,” said McGregor. “That’s what’s happening all over the world right now.” Highlighting those timeless struggles was quite deliberate by creators Rodgers and Hammerstein, who crafted the play after the Second World War. Said McGregor: “Rodgers and Hammerstein wanted to write a play that was bringing the world together—not challenging each other’s differences, but accepting each other’s differences. That was their big thrust to do this play.” EXPLOREPENTICTON.COM FOR EVEN MORE EVENTS

Financing your business today By SHAENA FURLONG

E

very great entrepreneur, every great idea, every future success story at some point encounters the same problem: money. For a new venture, capital is king. The inability to access that capital has spelled failure for more than one budding entrepreneur. So, how do you get it? What are successful Canadian businesses doing to manage their cash flow and secure financing today? Here, we explore the many benefits and drawbacks of various financing options. 1. Your personal assets: Home equity loans, personal savings and credit cards provide the cash for over three quarters of new businesses to get off the ground. This money is generally very liquid or easy to access, as well as providing the capital you need without giving up equity. However, this method also burdens the entrepreneur with all of the risk and/or debt of the new enterprise. 2. The FF Approach (Friends & Family): About 10% of small and medium sized businesses have accepted loans or gifts from their loved ones to get their business running. An entrepreneur is likely to get preferable interest rates from their connections but the cost of default could be much higher in this situation – the relationship itself. 3. Traditional Commercial Loans: Personal or business loans from financial institutions are by far the most highly sought for start-ups, upgrades or expansion. Even if the majority of financing is accessed through other means, most businesses will at the very least have an operating line of credit. Bring your registration documents as well as financial, bank, and investment statements. If you’ve been in business less than two years, bring a copy of your business plan. Check with individual financial institutions to learn more about their rates and requirements.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3

Most financial institutions have a number of different options to suit every business need; however, it can be difficult to find approval for young entrepreneurs or new immigrants without Canadian credit history. 4. Canadian Government Financing and Grants: The fate of SMEs is of paramount importance to our economy; therefore, the government does what it can to help good ideas flourish. There are a number of different programs this money is meted out through. One of which is the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF), which specializes in providing character-based financing to young entrepreneurs (39 or under) and introducing them to mentors in the industry. RCC is a Community Partner of CYBF. They offer only up to $45,000 through their program but can help young entrepreneurs find further financing through traditional means. CYBF partners with the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) to provide financing. BDC has a mandate from the government of Canada to provide financial assistance to business across Canada, with a focus on SMES. Depending on your industry, there may be many other options available. Talk to professional organizations and research online to find out what may be available to you. 5. Crowd Funding: What is Crowd Fundraising? It’s financing that uses the principles of crowd sourcing (soliciting contributions from a great number of individuals) to provide funds for a business or project. Websites like KickStarter and IndieGoGo have seen huge successes in recent years, though mainly with the arts or specific products. Most of the existing models do not sell equity and are considered to be donations, though there are some portals gaining popularity, which do. If you have an idea that will galvanize a population or have a large network,

this method can be very effective to raise capital in a short period of time without losing any equity. However, the public nature of crowd funding can a double edged sword. A viral campaign can gain instant interest and press. However, failure to deliver or meet specific goals can follow a business for a long period of time. Financing your business is essential. This decision cannot be made lightly but you have a number of options available to you.

and quickness and play very aggressive defence. Palmer will feature 10 Grade 12s, but only five returning from last season. A proven scorer who can put the ball in the basket in a variety of creative ways, guard Antonio Jhuty—who played for the BC U17 team last summer— leads the Grade 12 starters. Averaging a team-best 21 points per game last season, he has quick slashing moves, a good pull-up jumper and can score from deep three-point range. Fellow guard and former provincial U16 player Gurjit Pooni averaged seven assists per game last season as well as 10.5 points and he shot 45 per cent from the field and 72 per cent from the foul line.

another Richmond title for a team currently ranked No. 3 in the province at the AA level. “We are excited to try and win another Richmond championship, but without question the league will be the most competitive it has ever been,” says Eberhardt, who is looking forward to co-coaching the Griffins with former Richmond league and Lower Mainland MVP (2007) Edward Fan who returns to Palmer with “an amazing basketball mind and an ability to relate well to the players.” Eberhardt promises Palmer, despite being the smallest senior boys’ team he’s ever coached, will retain its strong reputation for fast-break basketball.

Wildcats have height, while Strikers sport speed From Page 20

With league play set to tip off next Wednesday (R.A. McMath Wildcats visiting Hugh Boyd Trojans at 7:30 p.m.), any of five or six teams are expected to have a realistic chance of topping the standings.

The Wildcats, under the guidance of Jon Acob, are most often mentioned as the favourites thanks to the arrival of a group of Grade 11s that last year reached the junior provincials. But while coach Jon Acob would rather down-

play the No. 1 tag he acknowledges there is great chemistry among the Wildcats. “With most of the guys playing spring ball together, all that work has helped,” says Acob, noting McMath has good leadership in returning Grade

12s Will Sherrett, Mark Vargas and Thaddaeus Melaku and a strong group of rookies led by Anthony Demch, Justin Laing and Jess Mason. And the Wildcats, who can all handle the ball well, shoot and dribble with the best

Hearing Aid inventory

of them, are not only athletic but blessed with size. McMath’s average height is six foot two. Close on McMath’s heels will be the Hugh McRoberts Strikers, a team that returns most of its seniors and has some decent size and athleticism—led by third-year senior and Grade 11 Arnold Macalipay who is widely regarded as one of the most exciting players in B.C. high

school hoops. And if either McMath or McRoberts slides, Matthew McNair Marlins, Richmond Colts or A.R. MacNeill Ravens will pick up the slack. Richmond High sports a good balance of guards and post players; Palmer, despite lacking the natural talent commonplace in recent seasons, still has one of the best coaches at the helm in Paul Eberhardt; and Mac-

Neill, well let’s just say the Ravens could be a force as last year’s team—minus just a single player—has been reassembled. “This should be a very exciting year for basketball in Richmond,” says McRoberts coach Brian Meier, whose Strikers return four starters from last year, with a combined nine years of experience at the senior high school level.

“For the first time in the new incarnation of McRoberts basketball, we are an experienced group looking to make some noise,” adds Meier, who promises the Strikers will play an assertive brand of basketball that is both fun to play and watch. “We will look to set and control the tempo both on offence and defence.” Besides Macalipay, the gifted point guard who is blessed with top-end speed, skill and an ability to find open teammates, the Strikers also have John Tseng, a six-foot-four Grade 12 guard who is also playing in his third year of senior ball and has led the team in scoring each of the last two seasons. Coach Meier expects Tseng, who is also a strong defender, to continue improving while leading by example. And at six-foot-five, Nolan Howell gives McRoberts a big presence in the paint and a player who isn’t afraid to battle for the ball as evident by his strong rebounding totals over the last seasons. As eluded to earlier, MacNeill returns nine players from last year’s team leaving co-coaches Landon Dy and Steward Siy with “high expectations.” See Page 24

several years now, McNair enters this season hoping to finally get over the hump and challenge for a city title. McNair tipped off the 2013-14 campaign with an impressive 90-64 victory over Eric Hamber on Tuesday. And they’re scheduled to play in the Sutherland Classic in North Vancouver this weekend, looking to repeat as tournament champions. They’ll be joined at this weekend’s tournament by three other Richmond teams: Palmer, McMath and McRoberts. McNair coach Jessy Dhillon’s optimism is strengthened by the fact McNair boasts an all-Grade 12 starting lineup of Royce Sargeant, Renz Zabala, Shivraj Sidhu, Gurjivan Grewal and Arsheel Ali. All five have played for the school’s senior team since Grade 10 and have been playing together since Grade 8. “They have built great chemistry over the years on and off the court,” says Dhillon. “Royce has been a starter for the Marlins since Grade 10, and is one of the top guards not only in Richmond but in the Lower Mainland. His ability to get to the hoop is unbelievable. He makes it look so easy.” Sargeant will be joined in the back court by second-year starter Zabala. Together, they feature one of the quickest back courts in the league and will be counted on to help the Marlins retain their high-tempo style of play. Undersized “big men” Grewal and Sidhu will be looked to provide energy and battle in the paint for rebounds, with Grade 11s Kevin Yang, Owen Vint and Balraj Saran on hand to spell them off. Yang emerged last season as one of the best spot shooters in the league. “A major strength of our starting five is that they can all shoot the ball pretty well, which will open up lanes for our guards to make plays to the hoop,” says coach Dhillon. “Similar to last year, our strengths will be our fast-paced attack that will look to wear out

bigger-sized teams.” At Richmond High, the once-mighty Colts are—by all accounts— mighty once more. Led by key returnees Dave Yap (captain), Amar Burmy, Jerry Shi and Tristan Ordonez, the Colts have added Keiteh Adano and Cory Pidhaichuk to an already strong lineup that figures to challenge for league supremacy. But coach Les Brown cautions not to expect overnight success. “As the only 4A school in Richmond we have a pretty tough schedule, trying to see what the competition at that level is like around the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, so there will be a lot of growing this season,” he says. Himself a former Colt, Brown is excited to welcome back another former Colt in Jason Birring to help coach the team. “We are really lucky to have him. He is great

with our players and has tons of experience,” says Brown. After spending the past couple seasons flirting with playoff success, the StevestonLondon Sharks are in clear rebuild mode. “We only have four returning players and only one player who played major minutes back from last year. And we also have five Grade 10s playing up this year,” says coach Mike Stoneburgh. The starting five, which includes a pair of Grade 10s, is made up of JP Daquioag, Nigel Boyd, Ibrahim Warsame, Taros Johal and Dennis Yap. Look for any of MJ Edurese, Darian Ngo or Jan Ycasas to be first off the bench. “Our expectations are to compete every game this year as Richmond will be really tough,” says Stoneburgh. “But with the new tiering this year Richmond basketball has become

tough and fun again as teams have new hopes of making BC’s or Lower Mainland championships.” Like the Sharks, JN Burnett Breakers are also in rebuilding mode but coach Bill Riach loves his team’s work ethic and is “excited and optimistic” that they’ll surprise more than few people this season. “We’ve got quite a group of talented kids so I think we’ll be at least reasonably competitive,” says Riach. But, he adds with caution, the team will also feature several Grade 10s which, while boding well for the future, will mean some pronounced growing pains. “Our goal will be to try to play a style where we’re not turning the ball over,” says Riach. “So that may mean trying to slow the game down and limit the fast breaks.” Hugh Boyd Trojans (28), HJ Cambie Crusaders (1-9) and Richmond Christian Eagles (0-10) combined for only three wins last season, but will be hoping to improve on those numbers this year.

Swimmers receive national honours Richmond’s Noemie Thomas, Luke Reilly named Canadian junior female and male swimmers of the year Richmond has a history of producing some of Canada’s top swimmers, and the latest news that two of its current athletes have been recognized with national awards only confirms that. Noemie Thomas and Luke Reilly, both members of the University of BC-based Pacific Dolphins, were honoured last weekend as the Junior Female Swimmer of the Year and Junior Male Swimmer of the Year respectively by Swimming Canada. Thomas, who still qualifies as a junior at age 17, competed against the world’s best in 2013. She was the youngest woman in the 100-metre butterfly final at FINA world championships in Barcelona, where she finished seventh. She also eaerned victories in the last two women’s races of the Canada Cup short

course meet last wekend in Toronto. Thomas neared her Canadian record in the 50-metre butterfly for the win, then a few minutes later was the lead-off swimmer in UBC’s 4 by 50-m freestyle relay gold performance. Meanwhile, the Junior Male Swimmer of the Year, Luke Reilly, 18, set a national age group record in his fifth-place finish in the 400-metre individual medley at the FINA World Junior Championships in Dubai. Former Richmond Rapids swim star and three-time Olympian Brian Johns was also recognized with an award last weekend by Swimming Canada. Johns, who is now coaching swimming for the UBC Pacific Dolphins (one of his students is Reilly) received a Coach of the Year award for his work.

GVHBA Coats for Kids campaign will keep spirits bright By Kerry Vital

The temperatures are steadily falling, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to break out the cozy winter coats, gloves, hats and scarves. However, for those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford all of that warm gear, this season might be less than cheerful. To combat this, the Greater Vancouver Home Buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Association has kicked off its annual Coats for Kids campaign, hoping to beat last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection number. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year the response to Coats for Kids was heart-warming as Lower Mainland residents donated more than 3,000 coats, scarves, gloves, blankets and new unwrapped toys and gifts for distribution to children, teenagers and adults,â&#x20AC;? says GVHBA Board of Directors Chair Lynn Harrison. The donation drive supports the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, which helps provide a brighter Christmas for families in need. This year marks the 18th year of the campaign, which

brings together members all over the Lower Mainland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am delighted so many prominent members of our association are participating,â&#x20AC;? says Harrison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is so important to help families in our communities who are in need, especially during this time of the year.â&#x20AC;? New or gently used winter coats, scarves, gloves, toques, warm blankets and sweaters and other warm items of clothing are all welcomed, as well as unwrapped gifts and toys or monetary donations. Among the locations you can drop off items are many Black Press community newspaper offices, developers and other housing industry professionals in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, North Vancouver, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Richmond, Surrey, Vancouver and West Vancouver. For a full list of participating locations and times when you can drop off donations, visit www.gvhba.org/coatsforkids.

Ledingham McAllisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Charland features spacious ďŹ&#x201A;oorplans with high-end details such as elegant kitchen cabinetry, large windows and stainless-steel appliances. The exterior architecture is inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, making for beautiful curb appeal.

Life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end at your front door at LedMacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Charland By Kerry Vital

Life is full of surprises, activities and excitement, and Ledingham McAllister is keeping that in mind with Charland, its condominium development in Coquitlam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We took your whole lifestyle into account,â&#x20AC;? says Manuela Mirecki, senior vice-president of marketing and design for Ledingham McAllister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end at your front door.â&#x20AC;? In order to cater to that, Charland includes

  $10,000

     

thoughtful touches such as a bicycle repair station, bike-sized storage lockers and storage for kayaks and paddles, making the development perfect for outdoor enthusiasts. It also has the perfect location, just blocks from the Vancouver Golf Club and Blue Mountain Park, as well as shopping, dining and schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It��&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about location, location, location,â&#x20AC;? says Mirecki. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are mountain bike trails galore around here, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredibly green.â&#x20AC;? Charland is joining the well-established Austin Heights neighbourhood, and will take advantage of some of the amazing views in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The views of Mount Baker and the golf course are absolutely beautiful,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says. Charland is equally beautiful, with its Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired exterior architecture, bamboo garden with its own seating area, infinity-pool water feature and

rooftop terrace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real sense of pride in the outside,â&#x20AC;? says Mirecki. Inside, the 88 spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans range from approximately 604 to 1,003 square feet, with a large balcony or patio in every home. Among the features youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find in your new space are nine-foot ceilings and contemporary laminate flooring throughout the main living areas. The kitchen in particular demonstrates the luxury of the home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kitchens are spectacular,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have all those things you would expect in a West Vancouver home. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really the showpiece.â&#x20AC;? Stainless-steel appliances, halogen pot lights and under-cabinet lighting are just three of those features. The cabinetry and countertops differ depending on your colour scheme. The Dogwood scheme showcases

white Shaker-style cabinets complemented by quartz composite countertops with linearstyle ceramic tile, while the Evergreen scheme includes flat-panel cabinets in a warm-grey wood-grain finish and quartz composite countertops paired with a modern porcelain mini-mosaic tile backsplash. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also find a breakfast bar or large kitchen island in most homes. Luxurious bathrooms feature square-edge quartz countertops and porcelain tile floors. The master ensuite includes a deep soaker tub with full-height ceramic tile surround and recessed pot lighting, which continues in the main bathroom as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are beautiful homes and floorplans,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says. Homes at Charland start at $219,900. For more information, check out www.ledmac. com/charland, call 604-492-3388 or visit the presentation centre at 102-1020 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam, open daily (except Friday) between noon and 5 p.m.

BC Cancer Foundation Legacies accepted. 604.877.6040 or visit: bccancerfoundation.com

JENSEN - Robert (Bob) James passed away peacefully at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria after a short battle with cancer on November 23, 2013. He was born on May 2, 1934 in Burnaby, B.C. Bob is survived by his wife of 50 years, Kathy, his 8 children, Leslie, Marty, Davie, Rod, Cheri, Neil, Greg, and Glen, and 16 grandchildren. Bob will be greatly missed by many other relatives and friends. Bob was an auto paint refinisher for 40 years and raised his family in Richmond, B.C. He was an avid sports enthusiast, sports fisherman and boater. He and Kathy retired to Mayne Island, B.C. in 1994 and was very involved in the Island, especially the Silver Maynes Society. His greatest pleasure in life was his family and especially all his grandchildren. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Mayne Island Assisted Living Society. A celebration of life will be held at Mayne Island Community Center on Saturday, Dec.. 7, 2013 at 12:00pm.

Frank Robert Taylor October 9, 1922 November 20, 2013. A very special, caring, wonderful man, a beloved father and grandfather has peacefully left this world’s journey. He was the eldest son of David and Frances’ family of seven and survived by brother Harry (Marie) and sister Shirley. He was predeceased by sisters Leonora (George), Lillian (Len), brothers, David and Ken. He is survived by his wife, B Louise (Harder), three sons Bob, Don (Wendy) James and daughter Nancy, grandchildren Christy (Matt), Brad (Liz), Joel, Chris (Nicki), Michael, Glenn, Caitlyn, Gillian and greatgrandchildren Nicholas, Makenna and Khloe. Frank was born in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. The family moved to Canada in 1924 and settled in Vancouver in 1933. In his youth, Frank was a devoted son, valued big brother and a keen scout. In 1939, Frank earned a position with the Federal Government, beginning a 40 year career. Like his father, he served his country. From 1942-45, Frank was the pilot of a Lancaster crew of seven for the RCAF, flying sorties from England. Frank married in 1951 and moved to Richmond in 1953 building 2 of 3 homes with his father, residing for 60 years on Francis Road. Frank’s career as a federal tax expert carried on past government “retirement” age for another successful decade with private firms. Dad was a beloved parent to his four children, and to his eight grandchildren. He was an influential, supportive, caring father. As his brother Harry would say at family gatherings to Dad, “Your true leadership is like the universe, it carries on forever.” He will be remembered for his life-long leadership service to his community, particularly through scouting. The Salvation Army’s Camp Sunrise was an important, favorite place for more than 75 years. Frank inspired all with his passion and poetic words at flagraisings and campfires. His creative “Gleanings” blessed us and reflected his deep spiritualness. He will be missed and always in our thoughts with love and respect. A private family service will be held in December, and a memorial service at Camp Sunrise in June. “Deep Peace”

To his family he is Dad, a man who showed us the meaning of strength, friendship, and love. To others he was Dick Maxwell an Advisor, Mentor and Investor. One who set unprecedented levels and standards within the Industrial Commercial Real Estate, being recognized as the top revenue producer in Canada. Through all of Dads achievements and successes in life his greatest love was his family. Dad provided the stability and balance that are key fundamentals for success in family. Dad would be the first one to say this success would not be possible without the support of his wife and best friend our Mom Norma.

There have been some extremely sad moments in our family, none that compare to the day Mom and Dad lost their son, and Gord and I our brother, Richard Maxwell.

The most effective way to reach an incredible number of BC Sportsmen & women. Two year edition- terrific presence for your business.

This was a life changing day for all of us especially Mom and Dad. I never understood the true impact, until I became a father myself losing a child is unfathomable. Mom and Dad found strength in each other and moved forward but life was never the same.

Please call Annemarie 1.800.661.6335 email: fish@blackpress.ca

Dad had many great achievements in life but his greatest achievement was his marriage to his best friend and our Mom Norma. This was a journey that began in the back forty ofNorma’s parents Gordon and Alice McKay’s strawberry field and ended with a life full of wonderful memories. It was our Mom, Dads best friend who in the end took care of him. In life we sometimes search for the meaning of true love, our mom defined it.

The event raised more than $15,000 in support of the society’s employment program, which provides youth and adults who are living with a developmental disability the support they need to secure meaningful employment; allowing them to contribute to their financial independence and full inclusion in community. The masquerade-themed Benefit of Possibilities treated guests to a gourmet dinner, live entertainment and an auction. Community Living Awards were also presented to individuals, community and corporate partners who support RSCL’s mandate of seeing beyond disability to ability.

Members of The Richmond Bar got together for dinner and raised over $13,000 for the Richmond Christmas Fund on Nov. 21 at the River Rock Casino and Resort. With help from generous sponsors including the law firms Campbell May Froh and Rice, Cohen Buchan Edwards, Pryke Lambert Leathley Russell and Kahn Zack Ehrlich Lithwick, as well as River Rock, all of the money raised through donations, ticket sales and a raffle goes directly to the Richmond Christmas Fund.
