Delta man facing 16 charges in crime rampage
Maple leaf now world famous Would-be challengers vie for maple leaf supremacy, but competitors have yet to measure up
by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter
by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Hugh McRoberts classmates delivered the news to Arzoo Tanwar last week. Her family, well, it was famous. Her Grade 8 chums made the discovery while leafing through a fresh copy of Guinness World Records 2014. Inside is the Richmond family and its record-breaking icon of Canada: a maple leaf broad enough to be named largest in the world. The family of five officially set the record in 2010 after enduring a rigorous verification process that included the support of Richmond East MLA Linda Reid. Once the certificate arrived from the Guinness organization, it found a home below the framed maple leaf in the Tanwar family room. The “Largest Maple Leaf” record first appeared on the Guinness website but, until now, never in the famed hardcover book. Mom Ekta Tanwar said with so many records being set, the family figured the foliage feat wasn’t destined for print. “We were just happy when we got the certificate,” she said. “It was quite a fun thing for us and our kids.” Learning last Friday the

landmark leaf made it to print proved good timing. Just hours after daughter Arzoo told her family, another maple leaf made the six o’clock news. A Victoria woman was claiming to have found one bigger. Not so, as it turns out. The Tanwar leaf is 53 centimetres (20.86 inches) wide and 52.2 centimetres (20.55 inches) long. The stem itself measures 32.5 centimetres (12.79
inches)—a measurement the Victoria woman included in her length calculation. Plenty of other would-be record breakers have surfaced since the Tanwar family’s feat. But so far, none have measured up—or gone through the required rigorous review. Yet it was another claim of maple leaf mastery that originally prompted the Tanwar family to pursue the world
record. Vikas had found the leaf near Spanish Banks in Vancouver in 2009. After reading a newspaper story about a boy’s claim of having the largest leaf, the landscape designer pulled out a ruler. The Tanwar family leaf was much larger, putting the official Guinness record in sight. Will the record ever be broken? “Well of course. Records are
made to be broken. But it is not us that decides that,” said Ekta. “I’m sure there must be some leaf out there bigger than this, but the question is, has it been found?” The record is one of two Guinness records set in Richmond. The other, “Most people in a nursery rhyme singing relay,” was achieved just last summer at the Richmond Maritime Festival.
A Delta man is now facing 16 criminal charges, a number that may still grow, in connection with Sunday’s violent crime spree across three cities that began in Richmond. Jonathon Gerald Leblanc, 30, is charged with robbery, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon in connection to a stabbing and carjacking at a home on Deerfield Crescent. The victim of the stabbing remains in hospital, in serious but stable condition, according to a resident of the home who saw him for a few minutes on Wednesday. The homeowner answered a knock at the front door around 6:45 p.m. Sunday, and was overpowered by a man who held a screwdriver to his neck until a family member handed over a key to a Honda Accord parked outside. The homeowner was repeatedly stabbed by the home invader, with at least one of the injuries piercing his heart, necessitating open-heart surgery Sunday. Provincial crown spokesperson Neil Mackenzie said Leblanc is also charged with: •robbery, assault causing bodily harm, and assault with a weapon against a second victim; See Page 3

Beam me up, Cambie Students to chat with astronauts on the International Space Station by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter
chance to chat with astronauts aboard the International Space Station doesn’t come along very often.
But a handful of students at H.J. Cambie Secondary hope to do precisely that this March, as the satellite whizzes by more than 300 kilometres overhead at speeds approaching 28,000 kilometres per hour—almost eight kilometres per second—for a brief six-minute communication window. The opportunity comes courtesy teacher Cambie science teacher Karen Ibbott—who made the successful application to the ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) program—and the technical expertise of the Richmond Amateur Radio Club, which is throwing its support, equipment and manpower behind the effort. The local hobbyist radio club’s members were busy Wednesday camped outside Cambie’s brick walls, braving the downpour as they ran through the first of several mock exercises they plan for the coming weeks, setting up the antennas, rolling out cables, and connecting amplifiers with radios, computers and generators. They want to work out all the bugs long before the big show, which is happening at a still-unconfirmed date in the first two weeks of March. Wednesday’s exercise buoyed their confidence, though they did identify a couple of areas that could be improved, said Kishore Nair, a 10-year member of the club and an electronics technician with Seaspan Marine who does radio communication as both a profession and a hobby. The March long-distance call to outer space will be near the culmination of a school-wide effort to make this an unforgettable teaching moment. Cambie vice-principal Erica Schmidt said it presents a chance for students to become uniquely engaged in learning. “It’s really a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity...It’s become a real crosscurricular experience for our school.” Home economics, math, French, music and science teachers have come together to come up with ways to engage students well in advance of the event, she said. In Karen Ibbott’s science class, talk-

ing about radio waves and the electro magnetic spectrum might normally get many eyes to glaze over. But making those fundamental physics concepts real in the context of both space exploration and students’ everyday lives—like the science behind cellular phone and radio communication—will help make March’s event special. The goal of the ARISS radio program is to spark an interest among students in the sciences, technology, engineering and math, which providing an educational opportunity for students, teachers and the general public. Kishore Nair explained a few students will speak directly to at least one astronaut, through a radio that’s operated by a licensed local amateur operator, and connected to an antenna that will be set up by the local radio club’s members on Cambie Secondary’s roof. Guided by a computer and powered by a motor, the antennae will track the space station as it swiftly moves across the sky, from horizon to horizon, providing a direct means of communication. Nair will have four computers lined
up, side by side, each with its own operator, in the event a problem— such as the computer crashing at an inopportune time—is encountered. A secondary antenna, known as an egg beater, will also serve as a backup to the main tracking antenna. While Cambie students will be exclusively chatting with the astronauts through a secure uplink, anybody who’s dialed in to the right frequency will be able to listen in on the astronaut’s responses as they are transmitted back down to earth. Two gymnasiums will be set up in the school to allow the entire student body at Cambie to listen in. It’s still unclear whether students will get to see the astronauts as well as hear them via a video feed that could accompany the radio communication, Nair said. Organizers at Cambie are eager to share their good fortune with the rest of the community, including other schools that may want to participate in some fashion, perhaps even have it simulcast in other schools or venues. Richmond-based high-tech firm MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates has already jumped on board, and
will be providing the keynote speech on the big day. Also participating is Vancouverbased firm UrtheCast Corp., which is developing the world’s first near-live high-definition video feed of Earth from space in a joint initiative with Russia and the United Kingdom. It hopes to have two high-def cameras installed on the International Space Station later this month, according to a press release issued Tuesday. Schmidt said that as the scope of the March event grows, so do the costs involved, including for the audio-visual component which carries a ticket price north of $10,000. “We would love to see this event be something...that our whole community can participate in,” she said. From the perspective of the amateur radio club members, putting their hobby knowledge into action presents an amazing and

fun challenge. “This is high on the cool factor,” said five-year club member Charles Cohen. All are keen on the idea of kindling a broader interest in the amateur radio club (www.rarclub.ca), which has about 40 members. There are some 400 licenced amateur radio operators in Richmond, with equipment capable of reaching other people around the world. During major natural disasters, the first communication often involves amateur radio operators, who play a critical role in ferrying information outside the region and to the rest of the world. Said fellow club member Jim Lavery: “When the big one hits and the power goes off, all I need is a 12-volt battery and a piece of wire, and I’m in business.” For those interested in participating in the International Space Station project, call Cambie Secondary at 604-668-6430. Anybody with technical radio questions, or who want to listen in, can e-mail the radio club at email@example.com for more information.
Other charges are possible in multi-city crime rampage From Page 1 • robbery, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon against a third victim; • assault with a weapon against a fourth victim; • robbery of a fifth victim; • assault with a weapon against a sixth victim;
• dangerous driving, mischief and failing to remain at an accident scene in relation to an incident that occurred in Vancouver; • failing to stop a motor vehicle being pursued by police in Surrey. Leblanc’s next court appearance is scheduled
for Jan. 16, for a bail hearing in Vancouver provincial court. Mackenzie said the Crown may receive additional investigative material, and since this is an ongoing police investigation, other charges are possible.
None of the charges involve the initial crash on Highway 99, near Highway 91, in which Leblanc is suspected of driving his vehicle into the back of another vehicle, and then fleeing the scene, which is close to the Deerfield property where the homeowner was attacked.

Richmond MLA leads apology charge Teresa Wat says education is key by Matthew Hoekstra and Tom Fletcher Black Press A Richmond MLA is urging all British Columbians to have a say in a planned apology to the Chinese community. “All British Columbians need to be a part of this important process if it is to have the currency it needs to be truly meaningful,” said Teresa Wat, Richmond Centre MLA and minister responsible for trade and multiculturalism, in an opinion piece released Thursday. Wat said she wanted to make it clear everyone is welcome to attend a series of forums being held throughout B.C. to prepare for the formal apology, expected during the spring legislature session. The consultations will help determine the wording and delivery of the apology for historical wrongs, but no further financial compensation is being considered. “We can’t undo the past but we can move forward and leave a legacy for future generations by educating them about the past,” said Wat, adding the apology must receive

full support in the Legislature and be “completely non-partisan.” One of seven forums is planned for Richmond on Jan. 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport. At a news conference in Vancouver Wednesday, the B.C. NDP released its own history of B.C.’s official efforts at racial discrimination, from denying the vote to Chinese and Indian immigrants in 1872 to efforts to restrict Asian immigration in the 1930s. NDP leader Adrian Dix said the dossier of racist actions by B.C. legislators is intended to accompany an apology to people of Chinese
descent that the provincial government plans to deliver in the legislature this spring. “I think it’s important that we take this work seriously, and that it not be just a one-day apology, but that it leads to reconciliation,” he said. The NDP package mostly duplicates material posted by the B.C. government on a dedicated website, www.embracebc.ca. The NDP records are at www.bcndpcaucus.ca. Dix said the documents will be used for an educational event with B.C. students in February, to get their suggestions on how the modern provincial government should respond. Prime Minister Stephen Harper made a formal apology to Chinese Canadians in 2006, and the federal government paid $20,000 each to families of immigrants who paid the “head tax” that was designed to deter Chinese immigration to Canada. An apology to residents of Chinese descent was postponed last year after a document from Premier Christy Clark’s staff was leaked, describing a plan to use that and other ethnic appeals to build support for the B.C. Liberal Party. Clark’s government issued a formal apology for the World War II-era internment of Japanese residents in May 2012.

City to spend $40,000 on job postings Richmond seeing increasing competition for qualified candidates, says spokesperson by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter The City of Richmond is preparing to spend an estimated $40,000 annually to advertise its available jobs online. Human resources staff are seeking to enter into a three-year deal with an agency to co-ordinate its online advertising—beyond posting positions to the city’s own website. A request for proposal was is-

and require a larger recruitment effort. “Also we always seek to hire a high calibre of employees, and attracting the best quality candidates often requires a more proactive approach as opposed to simply passively posting job opportunities on our website.” Townsend also noted the city is not unlike other large organizations—with a large number of baby boomers, many approaching retirement. The result is an increase in staff turnover. “That also contributes to increased competition for qualified, experienced candidates as many other organizations are facing the same challenges, which further fuels the need for proactive recruitment efforts.”

The contract is scheduled to be awarded next month. “The city’s preferred advertising medium for its recruitment needs is online, whether this be through: traditional job board postings, niche websites, association eblasts, creating an online recruitment presence/forum to engage candidates,” the proposal document states, adding the city may require print advertising “on an as needed and requested basis.” Richmond employs over 1,800 people at city hall, the works yard, recreation facilities, RCMP headquarters and fire halls.

Highway 99 commuters in Richmond got an unexpected show mid-afternoon Tuesday, when Mounties performed a Code 5, guns-drawn takedown on a blue sedan near Cambie Road. RCMP Cpl. Robert McDonald, of the Lower Mainland District Traffic Services, told The Richmond Review Wednesday that police received a report of a suspicious incident at or near the border along with a vehicle description. A Deas Island Freeway Patrol cruiser spotted the vehicle along the highway as it neared the Oak Street Bridge
around 3 p.m. The vehicle pulled over to the side of the road, and two people were arrested, including the male driver, McDonald said. Several bags with suspected narcotics were seized, and tests to determine the type of narcotic were going to be performed. The arrest took a matter of minutes, and went off without incident, McDonald said. McDonald said he believes the suspicious occurrence took place along Zero Avenue, between two border crossings, likely the Peace Arch Crossing and the truck crossing.

EDITORIAL: Assault a crime in any forest
f a tree falls in a forest, and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
In the hockey world, this philosophical question about observation/reality creates an interesting debate when it comes to crime. If a player punches an official in a hockey rink, and nobody reports it to police, is it a criminal code offence? The answer, according to Richmond Mounties, is no. Unless somebody calls police, which would trigger an investigation, it’s as if nothing happened, according to a senior local Mountie.

Well, no, according to the Richmond RCMP. And if the Richmond RCMP weren’t called to investigate, it’s as if it never happened. The idea that teenagers are taught that strapping on skates exempts them from the laws of the land, is ludicrous. No, this isn’t about fighting between players, which is a different debate. This is about hockey player violence in general, which in this case reportedly required the hockey official to be taken to hospital. A fight between consenting
adults or teenagers is one thing. When a referee is the victim, it’s time for a complete re-examination, as this teenager clearly crossed the line. Relying on the hockey associations involved in the incident to mete out justice, is folly. One phone call to the police about that incident would not just get them involved, but it would uncover the truth that the public deserves to know, and send a crystal clear message to the teen and his family, one from an objective perspective that’s not influenced by those invested in Canada favourite pastime.

And therein lies the problem, which has nothing to do with police, and everything to do with hockey’s misguided culture that encompasses players, coaches, parents and fans. Two weeks ago, during the Richmond International Midget International Hockey Tournament, a hockey player reportedly lost his cool and vented his frustration on an official. But did a single person observing this apparent assault—if you believe a hockey coach who described the unusual scene to a TV news cameraman the following day—call the police?

I countered by promising never to eat more than I can lift at any one time, which my plate, at his very point in time is challenging me with. Plate piled high, but moveable, veins in my forearms and forehead protruding, I carefully navigate toward a feeding area and trip over a sleeping grand kid. Second new year resolution breaks as I attempt to stay upright and verbally express my disappointment and shock as my first broken resolution, and grandmas, now broken, country estate pattern hit the floor. And then, the once sleeping angelic cherub, turns on me and announces that another loonie was to occupy the potty mouth jar. In my defence, it wasn’t an adult swear word. I just happened to mention an immovable object that holds back water as my, not one, but three chins and midnight snack were hitting the floor. But, it’s a word the grand kids had started to use as an adjective a little too often. Sometimes three to a sentence. So it came to be that loonies would suffer in an airtight jar at the top of the shelf every time that word and certain other words were used.
Two new year’s resolutions down and the hands in the clock were closer together than my thumb and index finger. How many more resolutions would end on this night? How many were there? She had made me a list but I had left it at home. That in itself could be a violation of a resolution. I have come to believe that new year’s resolutions are a women’s thing. Let's face it ladies if it were up to us guys we would just keep going wayward in all our bad habits. We could be 30 pounds (again refer to my driving analogy) overweight, walk naked past a full length mirror, suck in our gut and with two fingers pointed at our reflection, like the bartender from The Love Boat, make a clicking sound between our teeth and gums and pity the poor woman who could refuse this. If a guy ever starts to feel like he might be getting a bit too excessive in any one bad habit we just look for an example worse than ourselves and find comfort that we aren’t as bad as “that guy.” And it doesn’t even have to be the same fault! When a woman perceives herself overweight she is always jealous of skinnier women and will set goals to loose weight. With guys if, let’s say, he’s 30 pounds (you’ve figured it out by now) overweight and might somehow feel less than perfect, he doesn’t look at a healthier male as a goal but rather finds fault in his choice of vehicles to better his self image. “Phffft the guy drives a 64 split window Corvette. Thing has a huge blind spot!” So what if you've gone from eye candy to eye broccoli! Happy happy happy is the couple where the wife has dropped that girlfriend promise they all make to each other. “I’m going to change him.” You know that promise all you women make when you announce to your friends of your intended betrothed. “If he asks me to marry I'll say yes. Oh I know he's always kidding around, he’’s overweight, has no sense of style and his hair is a disaster but I promise you once were married I’ll change him into
Bob Niles caroon If a guy ever starts to feel like he might be getting a bit too excessive in any one bad habit we just look for an example worse than ourselves and find comfort that we aren’t as bad as “that guy.”
the man I've always wanted.” And with the start of each new year you revisit that challenge you’ve placed on yourself by encouraging him to look inward and make a resolution to do better. Or you take a more proactive approach and make him a list. It seems like the only day of the year it's appropriate. Oh sure you think a change is needed every time you look at him as he watches his Scooby-Doo cartoons. All in his sweat pants finery, with his matching ripped t-shirt. That once crazy head of hair now all wispy and thin as it clings on, fights the good fight to remain on his head. And it's not like he can’t grow hair cause now his back, ears and nose all support some sort of exotic growth. Well at least he doesn’t laugh so much anymore. Life sorta solved that problem. So ladies as you enter your “Stop-n-Start” season, we on the sidelines wish you well. As you stop the many things you perceive in your life as wrong or bad, and
start to do better in mind, body and soul go forth knowing we are somewhere behind you. We might notice your hair is cut different, or you’ve lost a few pounds or you've adopted a favorite frock rather than buy a new one. We might.....Then again, we might not. But please forgive us we're men. This is a rough season for us as you go about trying to better with your life and us along with it. You go girl! Do your thing! But we're happy minding the small things that somehow take up our time. Men take comfort as you watch the wife and her girlfriend power walk out of the driveway. They and many women like them all walking and jogging around the neighborhood while you with coffee and doughnut in hand survey their struggles from the comfort of your domain. To us January the oneth is college football, not a day to get all excited about changing things all around. Relax. Turn up the thermostat...oh poop! It's metric. Excuse me I’ve got to go to the car.

Better Grades Happier Kids
Oil producers need to meet B.C.’s demands Editor: There is a largely overlooked background issue with regard to the proposed Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation fuel delivery project that also needs to be considered. VAFFC argues that the Chevron refinery in Burnaby cannot meet its needs. While most of the discussion revolves around the viability of the existing Burnaby to YVR jet fuel pipeline, the elephant in the room getting little or no mention is that the Chevron refinery is unable to operate at full capacity. This is because more and more of the synthetic crude arriving from Alberta via the current Kinder Morgan pipeline is being diverted away from the refinery to be shipped to higher paying offshore customers via tankers through Vancouver harbour. Chevron has speculated that it may even have to shut the Burnaby refinery down if it does not get enough of the synthetic crude coming from Alberta. The existing Burnaby-to-YVR jet fuel pipeline is also operated by Kinder Morgan. Given that less jet fuel runs through the line, Kinder Morgan has indicated that it may have to shut it down and is demanding higher rates to keep it operating at less than optimal capacity driving jet fuel prices up. This uncertainty is a major contributor to VAFFC’s quest for other sources of jet fuel. It’s not so much that the Chevron refinery in Burnaby isn't capable of producing more jet fuel, it cannot as its crude supply is being choked off in favour of offshore customers. In other words this, to a large extent is an artificial problem. The National Energy Board denied a “priority destination designation” for the Burnaby refinery in July. Alberta-based oil producers shipping their product through the Kinder Morgan crude pipeline understandably want to sell to the highest bidders. Unfortunately domestic refiners are typically not the highest bidders so they’d rather sell to offshore customers without regard to B.C.’s (Lower Mainland) strategic interests. It’s about time that the federal government introduced regulations that ensures oil producers meet domestic (B.C. refinery) demand if the National Energy Board remains blind to B.C.’s needs. The irony is that if they do not, Lower Mainland fuel costs will increase even more and there will be a lot more trucks laden with Alberta and Washington State refined gasoline on our highways than jet fuel trucks from Cherry Point to YVR.

Dogs should be spared
Grade 1 - 12
Editor: Re: City wants dogs destroyed, Jan. 8. Outrageous! How in Heaven’s name could someone order for the dogs to be destroyed? Because its a Rottweiller? I bet if it was a yap yap little fluffy poodle this wouldn’t even make the news! A dog that size, if it wanted to do damage, it would have—I have seen and heard more damage coming from a pint-sized poodle. In fact, the next time one attacks my big black dog, should I be reporting that? This is outrageous and my heart goes out to the family concerned. I pray that someone in the city has a heart or a brain to realize that this has been taken one step too far. What a waste of money to have to go through this process—if only common sense would prevail. Leanne Donald-Jones Richmond

news Richmond real estate is both up and down What’s the state of the local real estate market? Well, that answer depends on if you’re looking at it monthover-month versus year-over-year. According to the latest figures from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, December sales of single detached houses and townhomes were down from the month prior. House sales were down 18.3 per cent in December 2013 compared to November, though the median selling price was up more than 17 per cent. Townhouse sales fell sharply, down 35 per cent in that same span, with the median selling price falling more than nine per cent. Condo sales rose slightly, month-over-month, up 6.7 per cent, though the median price dropped a little more than four per cent. But from a year-over-year perspective, December of 2013 was downright rosy. House and condo sales more than doubled compared to December of 2012, with selling prices also edging higher, up 7.4 per cent and 3.8 per cent. Townhouse sales were also up more than 22 per cent, though the median selling prices slipped three per cent. “Home sales quietly improved last year compared to 2012, although the volume of activity didn’t compare to some of the record-breaking years we experienced over the last decade,” said board president Sandra Wyant. “It was a year of stability for the Greater Vancouver housing market. Balanced conditions allowed home prices in the region to remain steady, with just a modest increase over the last 12 months.” Last year’s home sale total ranked as the third-lowest annual total in the region in the last decade. —Martin van den Hemel
H1N1 flu returns to B.C.
Conditional discharge means cop’s sentence unlisted
by Tom Fletcher Black Press Supplies of influenza vaccine are still available to B.C. residents, despite high demand as the H1N1 strain of the virus has returned, provincial health officials say. Cases since the current flu season began in December have shown a shift towards people aged 20 to 69, rather than the very young and the elderly who are typically most vulnerable. There have been severe cases involving healthy, younger people and two deaths have been confirmed, one in the Okanagan and one on Vancouver Island. The main strain of influenza to emerge this winter is a descendent of the H1N1 that prompted the largest vaccination in Canadian history in 2009-10, when the illness was declared a global pandemic. Provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall said the B.C. health ministry purchased a record 1.4 million doses of the current vaccine, which offers immunity to H1N1 and other strains. Some doctors’ offices and pharmacies have run out as demand has been higher than last year. “We have supplies currently available, but it’s conceivable that if demand continues to be high, we’ll use up all of those 1.4 million doses,” Kendall said Wednesday. “So I wouldn’t call it a vaccine shortage, I’d call it an unusually high demand.” The Health Ministry has a website for information on influenza and other vaccinations, with a guide to finding local flu clinics, at www.immunizebc.ca. Flu season typically runs from December to April.
Black Press files Influenza shots are in high demand with the return of the H1N1.
Kendall said in an average year, between 10 and 20 per cent of B.C. residents contract the virus, with about 2,000 sick enough to be hospitalized and 500 deaths, mostly people with underlying conditions. Seasonal influenza is mainly a respiratory illness, with symptoms of coughing, fever, headache and muscle ache that typically last from seven to 10 days. It can be complicated by pneumonia and worsen underlying conditions such as heart disease. Kendall said confirmation of North America’s first case of H5N1 “bird flu” is not a cause for public concern, because that strain is typically caught from poultry and rarely transmitted from person to person. A traveller returning from China to Edmonton via Vancouver International Airport during the Christmas season became ill and died Jan. 3.

Visit Dr. Greg Nelson in the morning, have the “Mini-Implant System” placed in less than two hours, then go out and enjoy your favourite lunch. What are MDI Implants? The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and the retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micromobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.

A Richmond RCMP officer who was involved in a hit-and-run collision on Highway 17 in Delta two years ago, won’t have his name appear on a public database because he was handed a conditional discharge. RCMP Cpl. Tony Bernard, whose full name is Antonious Alexander Bernard, received a conditional discharge, a one-year driving ban, a one-year term of probation and a $1,500 victim surcharge after pleading guilty to one count of dangerous driving. The other charges against him—impaired driving, refusing to provide a breath sample and failing to stop at an accident scene—were stayed. A curious reader of The Richmond Review questioned late last month why there’d been no follow-up to the original story, and a search of Court Services Online’s website, a public database of criminal and traffic court cases, came up empty. On Monday, The Richmond Review received an explanation from CSO Support. “The principles governing access policy balance the right of the public to transparency in the administration of justice with the right of the individual to privacy. In keeping with the legislative and policy requirements, the following criminal court records do not appear on the Court Services Online site: youth matters, convictions resulting in a pardon or record suspension, charges resulting in a stay or discharge, files sealed by order of the court,” CSO Support wrote in an e-mail. “The application of the legislative, court rule and judicial policy requirements directed by the judiciary is applied at a system level on Court Services Online and not applied at an individual case level.” Bernard was stopped by a Delta police officer after a complaint from a driver who’d been sideswiped on Sept. 15, 2011. The complainant managed to jot down the car’s licence plate and follow it until police arrived. —Martin van den Hemel

British Columbia Becomes Famous for Reducing Drunk Driving
2014 Ethels nominations now being accepted
THE ROAD RULES
by Martin van den Hemel
The nomination deadline for the 21st annual Ethel Tibbits Women of Distinction Awards is now less than two weeks away, and locals are urged to help recognize those in the community who really make a difference. The Ethels are scheduled for Friday, March 14 at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport, 8181 Cambie Rd. The categories are Youth, Sports, Arts, Business, CommunityVolunteer, and Community-Professional, and nominations can be made online by visiting tinyurl.com/2014Ethel. The nomination deadline is Friday, Jan. 17. The Ethels celebrates the accomplishments of local women, and is named in honour of the pioneering editor of The Richmond Review, Ethel Tibbits, an outspoken community activist who was fearlessly critical in her columns, notably her strong stance against the internment of those of Japanese heritage during the Second World War. The awards luncheon serves as a fundraiser for Nova House, a Chimo-operated shelter for women and their children escaping domestic violence. More than $280,000 has been raised for local women’s charities since 1994. Nominators are encouraged to provide as much relevant information about the nominees as possible,

nowbirds—Canadians who migrate to southern US climes during the winter months—leave behind more than their winter undergarments. Canadian politics, cultural stories, even the whole vastness of our geography simply vanishes. The traditional media reports no Canadian news, with the exception of the adventures of Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford. Imagine, then, the shock to SoCal snowbirds when the regional PBS television channel featured on the ‘Signature Segment’ of its Newshour Weekend show expressly named ‘British Columbia’ story about laws that have reduced drunk driving fatalities by over 50 percent in two years. The set-up cited the current US statistics—10,000 drunk driving fatalities annually—and that Canada has a similar problem. The story begins, it said, six years ago when a four-year-old girl was hit and killed roadside while feeding a horse in the late afternoon with her aunt by her side, who was injured. The 58 year old driver was reportedly travelling at 91 kmh in a 50 kmh zone when she lost control on the speed bumps, stepped on the gas instead of the brake and veered into the two victims. The evidence at trial established that the driver was impaired by alcohol and she was convicted and sentenced to 2½ years on each of four charges of dangerous and impaired driving causing death and serious injuries, with the time to be served
concurrently. Images highlighted the immeasurable contrast between the beauty of the child and the serenity of the rural setting, and the horrible aftermath. According to the report, the parents of the child resolved to memorialize their daughter by dedicating themselves to working to change the culture around drinking and driving. Ultimately, we are told, they concluded, along with other lobbyists (Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), for one) that legislative changes were the best way to achieve their goal. The resulting legislative program is summarized focusing particularly on the new lower .05 BAC level, and the police powers to impose immediate consequences including on-the-spot impoundment, license suspension, fines and penalties. Enforcement of the new program, the report goes on to say, began in late 2010 and it caused “an uproar.” We are told about the civil libertarian objections to the program and the practical difficulties and losses it caused for the bars and restaurants throughout the province. But then we are shown graphs of the results—the dramatic plunge in fatalities in Year 1 and Year 2 resulting in a net decline of over 50% in drunk driving caused fatalities. Why this legislative program has worked so well is analyzed by academics from the University of Victoria and this is echoed by statements by the dead child’s mother: the severity of the consequences, the suddenness of their imposition, the high level of enforcement and the fact that all of these elements were well-publicized. The report mentions the legal challenges to the program including the functioning of the roadside testing machines and the adequacy of the appeals process, but concludes by saying that the heart of it remains intact. …by Cedric Hughes, Barrister & Solicitor with regular weekly contributions from Leslie McGuffin, LL.B.

Alzheimer Society’s Walk for Memories returns to BCIT Aerospace campus by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A fundraising walk for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. is set for Sunday, Jan. 26 at the BCIT Aerospace Technology Campus. The Investors Group Walk for Memories in Richmond-South Delta is dedicated to Elizabeth Stewart. A 66-year-old native of Scotland, Stewart started her journey with Alzheimer’s disease as a caregiver to her parents. At age 60, Stewart herself started to show signs of the disease. Three years later the Delta mother of three was diagnosed. She continues to live with the disease today, with support from the Alzheimer Society of B.C. According to the society, 70,000 British Columbians are living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Age is the greatest known risk factor—the risk doubles

approaches her paintings with bright colours, texture and detail. At Rocanini sheâ€™s exhibiting figurative intuitive artwork. â€œI often start out with non-representational expressive drawing and painting,â€? she said. â€œAt some point during this process I make the decision to grab a hold of the abstract shapes and turn them into faces or figures leaving as much of the intuitive work undisturbed as possible.â€? Tebbit paints â€œwhat hooks my emotion and poses a technical challenge.â€? Her art education began in high school with a commercial artist-turned-teacher. She took a few courses in university, and learned much about art during a 10-year part-time career as a nude model for the Alberta College of Art and Design. Tebbit has designed tattoos,

Young magician to ‘hack’ brains, predict future Jason Yu promises to show a Richmond audience next week how an ordinary object can turn into a miracle. The 24-year-old magician is performing at Stage One Academy on Saturday, Jan. 18. At his “Irresistible” show, Yu says he will “hack” into brains, predict people’s future, produce drinks from his sleeves, bring drawings to life and challenge Houdini’s most dangerous act. Yu grew up in a small city in South
China. Since the age of nine he’s had a fascination with magic. That fascination became a passion, and by age 12 he performed his first magic show in an elementary school. Since then he has dazzled people at hundreds of shows and parties.

Looks Toyota has always been a logical purchase, based on reliability and durability but now its designs too are capturing buyers with a visual, desirable esthetic. The 2014 edition is 7.5cm longer (mostly in the rear seat and cargo area), 1.5cm wider and 3cm lower. The stance is wide and lower, making more of a visual impact. Combine this with a large grille borrowed from the Tundra pickup truck and the Highlander has a very rugged, yet polished, look that

there is 100L of cargo space behind the third row of seats offering much better functionality. It has all the interior amenities that one expects in a modern three-row crossover, even a system that allows the driver’s voice to be amplified through the stereo for easier conversations with passengers in the very back, but there seems to be a lack of sophistication compared to its competition. Drive The previous Highlander was available with a 4-cylinder engine and front wheel drive (FWD). It’s with a standard 3.5L V6 with 270hp, matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission, also with FWD. The starting price stays at $31,680; factoring in the backup camera there is good value here. When it arrives later this month, the base LE with all wheel drive (AWD) starts at $34,180. I think most people will opt for the LE with convenience package that includes 8-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, three-zone climate control, satellite radio and leather steering wheel to name a few. This brings the price up to $34,480 for the FWD and $36,980 for the AWD. On the road, the AWD system sends power to just the front wheels as often as possible with only 10 per cent of the torque shifting when cornering. The system has the ability to shift or lock up to 50 per cent of the power for better traction but limiting it to times
when it is truly needed helps improve fuel economy. The other part of the fuel economy story is the all-new 6-speed automatic. The official fuel rating for the most popular AWD model is 11.5L/100km in the city and 8.2L on the highway, which is almost a full litre improvement in combined highway/city economy over the 2013 model. The rear suspension has been modified for a slightly more dynamic drive and improved ride. The steering is rather light and vague but the buyers of this type of product will appreciate the ease of use.
OF THE WEEK:
Verdict The Highlander is a functional vehicle for young buyers with kids and friends that need to get to practice and carry all the sports equipment that goes with it. Overall, a very good family crossover that will get the job done every day.
What do you think is the best special feature available in today’s cars and trucks? Please explain why you have made that decision.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK!
Go to drivewayBC.ca to submit your answer.
With challenging road conditions across the province, January is always one of the highest months for crashes in B.C. Take some small steps to prepare your vehicle for the conditions, such as checking your tire pressure – tires deflate more quickly in cold weather – and top up your vehicle’s anti-freeze, windshield washer fluid, and gas.

RICHMOND SCHOOL DISTRICT #38 2014-15 SCHOOL TRANSFERS & REGISTRATIONS When and where should I register my child? If you are new to the district, you must register first. All new Kindergarten registrations for the 2014-15 school year will take place at the English catchment schools from January 13 - 31, 2014. After January 31, 2014 all new Kindergarten registrations for the 2014-15 school year will be taken at the Central Registration Office at the Richmond School Board Office. All grade 1-12 students should register at the Central Registration Office. Parents/ legal guardians must personally register their children by presenting the following legal documentation: proof of Richmond residency (one of the following legal documents: current property tax notice, formal rental or lease agreement, signed contract of purchase of sale with possession date and subjects removed, Confirmation of Residency Form); proof of status in Canada (the student’s original birth certificate(translated by a Notary Public if not in English), Canadian citizenship or Landed/Permanent Resident card for the parent/legal guardian and child) and the student’s immunization records. If registered by June 13, 2014 the student will be guaranteed a space in their English catchment school for the 2014-15 school year. If registered after that date, the student will be placed at a nearby school by the school district if space and resources are not available in the student’s catchment school. The application timeline for new Early French Immersion, Late French Immersion and Montessori applications is January 13-31. 2014. Application forms are available at the current school or on-line and once completed can be dropped off at the Central Registration Office at the Richmond School Board. Access to these programs will be through a district-wide draw process, with sibling priority. Late applications including siblings will go to the bottom of the wait list generated by the draw.
What should I do if I want my child to transfer to a non-catchment school? The parent/legal guardian of a student who is not attending a Richmond SD 38 school and wishes to transfer to a non-catchment school must first register at the Central Registration Office and after doing so, may obtain a Transfer Application Form [RSB SA 23] and submit it to the requested school. Commencing Monday, January 20, 2014 at 8:00 a.m., transfer applications for students wishing to attend a non-catchment school will be received at the requested school. Students currently attending a Richmond public school, do not need to re-register. The parent/legal guardian of a student who wishes to transfer to a non-catchment school should obtain a Transfer Application Form for Richmond Residents [RSB SA 23] from their catchment school, have it initialed by the catchment school and then submit it to the requested school no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 28, 2014. If the application is received at the requested school by February 28, 2014, and space and resources are available, students will be approved to attend in accordance with the priorities listed in Regulation 501.8-R, paragraph 5.a. [1st: catchment 2nd: Richmond resident transfer students and 3rd: Non Richmond resident transfer students], on a “first come, first served” basis. Richmond resident transfer students have priority over non-Richmond resident transfer students for transfer requests submitted by February 28, 2014. Schools will mail letters to the parents/legal guardians of transfer applicants on March 14, 2014, advising them of the status of their child’s application. If a late transfer application is received after March 3-June 13, 2014 then the request may be considered in accordance with the criteria set forth in district Regulation 501.8-R, paragraph 5.f. (4) [See Group 3 Student Priority Chart] NOTE: Parents/legal guardians should be aware that schools designated as “full” by the school district will not be able to approve first time transfer applicants due to a lack of available space and resources.
What if my child already attends a non-catchment school? Richmond Residents: Richmond resident students who are currently attending a non-catchment school, and wish to continue at that school for the 2014-15 school year, are not required to submit a transfer request. Such students will automatically be enrolled at the school unless they withdraw or transfer out of the school. Please let the school know if you are leaving. Out of District Residents: All students who reside outside of Richmond and are currently attending a Richmond school, and wish to continue at their school, must complete “An Intent To Attend” form at their current school. Students transitioning from elementary to secondary school must submit a Transfer Application Form for NonRichmond Residents [Form RSB SA 73], which is available from the attending school, by February 28, 2014.

The BC Home + Garden Show will take place Feb. 19 to 23, and will feature the GVHBA Renovation Gallery, a 1,000-square-foot space featuring before-and-after photos of professionally renovated projects as well as free consultations with RenoMark renovators, designers, subtrades and suppliers. You’ll also find the HGTV Main Stage, with appearances from experts such as Bryan Baeumler, Mike Holmes Jr. and Sherry Holmes and Janette Ewen.
NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT
March will bring the 20th annual First-Time Home Buyers Seminar, taking place at the Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey. “Our experts will help first-time buyers consider all available options and important issues before they take that critical first step onto the property ladder,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Real estate continues to be a hot topic in this region, so seminar attendance is expected to be as many or greater than the 750 young people who attended last year’s event.” A panel of experts will discuss a variety of topics, including the best location, what home type is best matched to wants, needs and financial resources, and legal considerations. Exhibitors will also be available beforehand to answer any questions and provide information to attendees. Pre-registration is required; you can register online or call 778-565-4288 Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring a food item for the Surrey Food Bank.

The views from Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain are truly spectacular, below, and Morningstar Homes is taking advantage of this with their view homes at Partington. With all the gorgeous features of Partington plus the amazing scenery, the homes are second-to-none.
Taking in the view on Burke Mountain By Kerry Vital
Morningstar Homes continues to impress with their latest release of amazing View Homes, an extension of Partington on Burke Mountain that combine beautiful homes and a view that’s second-to-none. “This is a really special offering,” says Deborah Calahan, vice-president of sales and marketing for Morningstar. “There is a limited quantity of view homes available on Burke Mountain and they are in high demand.” The spectacular homes include all of the
gorgeous features of Partington, while also including some of the most beautiful views in the Lower Mainland. “It’s like being on top of the world,” says Calahan. “Our Partington homes were designed with incredible views in mind by making the windows the focal point of each home. We could not pass up the opportunity to show them off.” The four-bedroom homes at Partington are available in three different open-plan floorplans, ranging from 3,700 to 3,900 square feet. All of them include an unfinished basement and a large private yard with patio or deck. The kitchens are truly huge, with granite islands, stainless-steel appliances and tons of counter space. Hardwood flooring throughout the main living areas complements the 19-foot vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling linear fireplace. “These homes are very well laid-out” Calahan says. “There’s a sense of grandeur here. People are noting the ‘wow’ of the house; it takes your breath away.”
Partington is perfectly located for homeowners to live the Burke Mountain lifestyle. The neighbourhood has been growing over the years and now includes schools, parks and trails. It is also just a short drive to Coquitlam Town Centre for shopping, dining and transit. You can also find leisure and recreation activities nearby. Partington joins Morningstar’s seven previous projects on Burke Mountain, including Belmont, Avondale and Kingston. “We always strive to be innovative and offer our purchasers the best,” says Calahan. “We never tire of trying to better our designs, with each new project being given its own consideration.” Morningstar was the first developer on Burke Mountain, and Calahan says that they’ve been welcomed with every project they build. She has increasingly seen friends and family members of other Morningstar buyers looking to purchase their own home. Every home at Partington has been selling well, with Calahan noting she is releasing
more lots for sale this weekend. “Demand is high for a quality product by a trustworthy builder with an outstanding view. We’re selling them faster than I can release them!” she adds with pride “The Morningstar brand is becoming a household word on Burke.” View Homes at Partington start at $1.2 million. For more information, check out www.mstarhomes.com, call 604-942-6370 or visit the sales office at 1508 Dayton Street, Coquitlam, open daily (except Friday) between noon and 6 p.m.

SALMON (nee Jessop), Josephine Marie It is with great sadness we mourn the passing of our beloved Mom, wife and grandmother, Josephine Marie Salmon (nee Jessop) on January 2nd 2014. Josie was born in Spalding Saskatchewan in 1927. She met and married Fred Jessop in Saskatchewan and they moved to Vancouver BC where she worked as a hairdresser and a tireless wife and mother raising two sons. After Fred’s passing in 1984, Josie moved to Langley BC and was fortunate to meet and marry Howard Salmon in 1999. He has been a loving husband and they were able to spend 14 wonderful years together. Josie will be remembered as being a loving mother and wife. Josie is predeceased by her first husband Fred Jessop and her brothers Henry and Gene Didier. She will be lovingly remembered
by her husband Howard Salmon, her two sons, Darrell and Gordon Jessop and their wives, Karen and Arlene, her brother, Jerry Didier and grandchildren, Nicolas, Rhys and Taryn. By Josie’s request, there will not be a service. The family will be having a private celebration of life. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to either the Alzheimer Society of BC or the BC Cancer Society. The family would like to extend their warmest thanks to the staff and Doctors at the Langley Memorial Hospital and the Rosewood Extended Care Facility in Langley.

ADESA Richmond Public Auction held a food drive for the Richmond Food bank throughout December. With help from its customers and staff, the No. 8 Road business was able to stock a Fiat 500 full of non-perishable food, clothing and diapers. Behind the wheel of the Fiat is Richmond Food Bank’s Alex Nixon.
