Harlem Globetrotter whistles into town

City reaches deal on another dog facing destruction order

30 lucky students learn the tricks of the court

Dusty, the pit bull, will be adopted outside community

by Don Fennell

Staff Reporter

Sports Editor

Paris and Axel weren’t the only Richmond dogs facing a destruction order this week. Last week, The Richmond Review learned of Dusty, a pit bull who’d apparently been seized by the City of Richmond after it bit a man. Shelby Cumming, a volunteer at the Richmond Animal Protection Society, said Dusty apparently had a nasty habit of jumping up at people. During one incident, as Dusty was jumping at a man, he began to repeatedly strike the dog, and during the exchange Dusty bit him. City spokesperson Ted Townsend told The Richmond Review that the city had reached an agreement with Dusty’s owner. Dusty will be adopted outside the community, he said. Earlier, Townsend clarified that although the city made a destruction-order application, which enabled it to keep Dusty beyond the maximum 21 days currently allowed by provincial legislation, the city was “not intending to seek the destruction of that dog.” Asked why the city couldn’t simply reach a similar agreement with the owners of Paris and Axel, two Rottweilers owned by Prabjot and Nav Nijjer who were involved in a minor biting incident near Henry Anderson Elementary School in late October, Townsend said The Review should pose that question to the Nijjer family and their lawyer. Townsend said that the public needs to understand the process. The city, in situations where it believes public safety is at risk, can only hold a dog for a maximum of 21 days. If it wants to hold a dog beyond that period, it must make a destruction application. See Page 5

A Harlem Globetrotter taught 30 Drive Basketball students more than just a few trick shots Monday at the Richmond Olympic Oval. He taught them the importance of perseverance. “Just because you do not do something or do not make it does not mean it’s all over. You’ve got to keep trying, keep going, before you get to where you guys need to be,” Tay (Firefly) Fisher told the Grade 4 and 5 players. Known for the Flybuzz, his signature move, the engaging Fisher had the kids hanging on his every word and move during the brief but rewarding visit in what Drive instructor Pasha Bains called “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Fisher, himself, is an example of the message he delivered. A multi-sport athlete growing up, the 27-year-old native of Kingston, New York didn’t focus on basketball until his early teens but ultimately became a college hero when he went a perfect 6-for-6 from three-point range to lift Siena College past Vanderbilt in a memorable NCAA game in 2008. He was “drafted” that

summer by the Harlem Globetrotters, but was ultimately cut. Instead of dwelling on the disappointment, Fisher worked even harder and the following year made the team. “Even though I did the best I could I didn’t make it but the next year they gave me another chance and I did even better,” he said. “And five years later I’ve been to about 50 countries. It’s a

beautiful thing. No matter what, we’re all going to fail at times.” The seriousness of Fisher’s message may seem in contrast to the comedy the barnstorming Harlem Globetrotters are renowned for. But in reality it complements the story of the 88-year-old touring basketball team very well. Founded in Chicago in 1927, the Globetrotters chose Harlem

as their home base the following year—though they never actually played a “home” game there until 1968. Adopting Brother Bones’ version of "Sweet Georgia Brown" as their theme song, the team set out to entertain fans worldwide with a unique combination of athleticism, theatre and comedy. See Page 5

Crisis calls by cell phone could be free

Justin Trudeau visits Lingyen Mountain Temple

A 68-year-old Richmond man is facing 10 criminal charges in connection with a Sept. 23 incident in Steveston. James McLees was sitting in his vehicle around 8:40 p.m., and appeared to be intoxicated, when neighbours in the area of Springmont Drive and Springfield Crescent intervened. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said witnesses at the scene were allegedly threatened by McLees who then tried to drive away. McLees then collided with some vehicles, but was stopped almost immediately by Richmond Mounties who were responding to the scene. McLees is charged with having control of a vehicle while impaired, driving while over the .08 blood/alcohol limit, uttering threats, two counts of mischief under $5,000, dangerous driving, assault with a weapon and failing to stop at an accident scene. McLees was scheduled to make his first appearance in Richmond provincial court on Tuesday. —Martin van den Hemel

Application to CRTC to eliminate charges to helplines and crisis lines, protect users’ privacy by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A local initiative could eventually see all cell phone calls to helplines be free of charge. On Thursday, the Public Interest Advocacy Centre and Chimo Community Services, filed an application with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, seeking the elimination of charges for Canadians who call helplines and crisis lines from their cell phones. The initiative would also protect helpline users’ privacy, according to former Chimo executive director Lisa Westermark. A coalition of Richmond agencies that are part of the Richmond Family Violence Prevention Network, discussed initiatives to support families and prevent violence, and the idea of eliminating charges on cell phones grew from those meetings. Westermark said the Public Interest Advocacy Centre, which provides legal and research services on behalf of consumer interests, was willing to champion the idea. “If someone were to make a local call or a call to a 1-800 or 1-888 helpline number from a landline phone, their call would be free for them,” said advocacy centre counsel Jean-Francois Leger. “That

shouldn’t change just because they are now calling from their cellular phone. “And more and more Canadians only have cell phones, not landline phones.” And those who use help lines shouldn’t have to fear that their calls would be traceable by anyone who has access to account information. “This is particularly important in situations of domestic violence.” Westermark said the local crisis line receives more than 10,000 calls annually from people of all walks of life. “Many are youth or individuals with low income. Many have nowhere else to turn. It would be tragic if someone in need was not able to access our free service due to the cost of the call.” The application was supported by eight other organizations: Ending Violence Association of B.C., Family Services of Greater Vancouver, Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses, Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres, Richmond Youth Service Agency, Safe Communities Cranbrook Committee, Vancouver Coastal Health and Women Against Violence Against Women Rape Crisis Centre. The application can be found on the advocacy centre’s website at www.piac.ca

Cool temperatures prompt opening of temporary shelters

City to test new garbage carts

by Katya Slepian

Staff Reporter

With lows this week set to reach -6˚C, Richmond has opened up two extreme weather temporary shelters. Richmond, which regularly has one men’s shelter at the Salvation Army’s Richmond House Men’s Shelter, had a homeless count of 49 according to the Metro Vancouver 24 Hour Homelessness Snapshot. According to Ted Townsend, senior manager of corporate communication for the City of Richmond, “when the temperatures get to extreme lows as we’re seeing right now, it does pose a significant health and safety risk to people that are sleeping outside” Extreme Weather shelters are open intermittently between November 1 and March 31 as conditions dictate, generally when temperatures reach below zero, during snowfall and when freezing rain occurs. St. Albans Inn from the Cold will provide up to 16 shelter spaces for men, women, seniors and families from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. It is located at St. Alban Anglican Church at 7260 St. Albans Road and can be reached at 604-278-2770. The Salvation Army’s Richmond House Men’s Shelter will expand from six spaces to 16 spaces and is open to men only for 24 hours a day. It is located at 3111 Shell Road and can be reached at 604276-2490. Both shelters will serve dinner daily. Anyone interested in volunteering for the extreme weather shelter program may call 604-315-5705 or email innfromthecoldrichmond@ gmail.com.

Three Richmond neighbourhoods will soon become testing grounds for a new trash collection program. City council has approved a pilot program to test garbage pickup with new standard bins similar to green carts introduced last spring for organics collection. Under the six-month pilot, 1,600 single-family homes and townhouses are scheduled to receive the new carts later this month. Half will continue receiving once-a-week collection, while pick-up would be reduced to onceevery-two-weeks for the rest. “The overall goal is to help gain resident input into a city-wide program to align the city’s garbage collection services with the goals for recycling and waste reduction,” said Suzanne Bycraft, manager of fleet and environmental programs, in a report to council. Civic politicians unanimously approved the $325,000 pilot Jan. 27. Test neighbourhoods are in the ar-

Trash pickup could be reduced following test of three Richmond neighbourhoods

eas of South Arm Park, Odlin Park and Talmey Elementary School. Residents in the South Arm Park test group will receive a single 120-litre cart—the size of an average trash can. Other residents will get carts twice as large, but collection will be reduced to bi-weekly. In July, staff will evaluate the program and recommend an approach for all Richmond homes on garbage service. Rolling carts out city-wide comes with a cost of $2.2 million and higher collection fees. But staff say carts would reduce trash collection complaints, and a single recommended 120-litre cart—along with rate incentives for alternative sizes— would encourage more waste diversion. Surrey and Vancouver already have bi-weekly garbage collection using carts. Surrey also collects recycling biweekly.

“The overall goal is to help gain resident input into a city-wide program to align the city’s garbage collection services with the goals for recycling and waste reduction.” — Suzanne Bycraft

Passenger’s violent outburst fueled by alcohol A 25-year-old Australian man appeared in Richmond provincial court Monday morning in connection with what police described as an alcohol-fueled violent outburst aboard a China Southern Airlines flight. Abdul Zain Ali was held by flight security on the plane when he allegedly became violent while intoxicated. Ali was restrained and arrested by Richmond RCMP after the plane landed Sunday at 9:30 a.m. He is now charged with causing a disturbance, mischief and assault. Richmond Mounties announced a second incident from early last month that involved a domestic flight. Peter Douglas Lafond, 42, pled guilty to causing a disturbance after he got drunk and became aggressive on the plane on Jan. 23. Off duty officers from Winnipeg and Saskatoon jumped in to assist when the man refused to leave the plane because he was too drunk to fly. The man was escorted off the flight and held by two off-duty officers until Richmond RCMP arrived. Lafond was handed a conditional discharge for causing a disturbance, and is barred from being in any airport within 24 hours of consuming alcohol. “The message to the public is that if you get drunk and cause problems in our airports, you won’t get where you are going and could face criminal charges,” Ashton said.

Destruction doesn’t always mean destruction

‘To be a Globetrotter means everything’

From Page 5 But Townsend clarified that just because such an application is made, it doesn’t mean that’s the final outcome. The courts have already established a precedent where it can order a wide variety of outcomes, from retraining dogs, to adopting them out, to enforcing conditions on the dog or its owners. Simply initiating a destruction order doesn’t mean that will be the final outcome, Townsend said. “The court process is the only way to set binding legal conditions on the care of these animals,” he said. Although the Nijjer family in December agreed to a long list of conditions for the return of their dogs, Townsend argued those conditions aren’t legally-binding. The only way to make them legally binding is going through the court process, he explained. If the city believes public safety is at risk, it has a legal responsibility to take action, Townsend said. The city is looking forward to reading the assessments of Rottweilers Axel and Paris completed by animal behaviour specialist Dr. Rebecca Ledger. A Richmond provincial court judge is slated to hear arguments on the destruction of Axel and Paris in April. The pair escaped their family home’s backyard on Oct. 25, and wandered onto a construction site where Axel bit worker Dustin Wang, causing a minor contusion on his upper thigh that neither broke his skin or tore his jeans. Wang has also said he doesn’t want to see the dogs destroyed.

From Page 1 Soon, the Globetrotters—displaying jaw-dropping skills—became household names: Fred (Curly) Neal, one of basketball’s all-time greatest dribblers, and future NBA greats Wilt (the Stilt) Chamberlain and Nat (Sweetwater) Clifton among them. “To be a Globetrotter means everything,” said Fisher. “Everybody wants to play in the NBA and that was my goal at their age (Drive Basketball players) as well. “There are many great players but to be a Globetrotter takes more than just basketball skills. It also takes showmanship, personality, energy, passion and commitment that not many have and I think that’s what separates us from other pro sports. “As a Globetrotter you should never be satisfied,” said Fisher, who continues to work daily on making his patented Flybuzz even better. “When you’re following people like Curly Neal, Meadowlark Lemon and Marques Haynes you have to be able to be innovative. That’s who the Glo-

betrotters are, we’re innovators. “We started the behind-the-back, the alley-oop and the slam dunk and our aim is to continue our tradition of trying to bring joy to people with our personalities and our skills. It’s all about seeing smiles on their faces—just like what we’ve we’ve been doing for 88 years.” •Basketball fans can catch Firefly Fisher and the rest of the Harlem Globetrotters at two Lower Mainland shows next week: Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre at University of B.C. and Feb. 14 at 7 p.m. at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. Tickets are available online at www.ticktmaster.

iberal leader Justin Trudeau took the debate over the Senate to a new level last week, by announcing on Wednesday that the 32 members of the Senate who were part of the Liberal caucus would henceforth be independents. Trudeau, who has been very cautious in coming up with policy moves since becoming party leader last April, was bold and maybe even a bit reckless. But he has positioned his party very nicely. Anger over the entitlements within the Senate has grown across Canada, and the governing Conservatives struggle to come up with a consistent position on the upper chamber. The Liberals, who have been in power most often, have been the party to benefit the most from the cushy patronage arrangements within the Senate. More than any other party, the Liberals have installed bagmen, former candidates and mid-level functionaries in the Senate. Among the current 32 (former) Liberal senators, there are two former premiers, two former press aides to prime ministers, a former Alberta Liberal leader, several former MPs and a number of former candidates. Trudeau says his decision shows that his party is serious about Senate reform. He is proposing that all future Senators be appointed by the prime minister in consultation with a prominent group of Canadians, and be non-partisan while doing Senate work. He points out that this can be done without reopening the constitution, which is the perennial challenge when discussing Senate reform. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has tried to operate outside the constitution as well. He has appointed one senator who was elected in Alberta, and has asked his appointees to accept limited terms in the Senate. However, he has no way to force them to resign, because once they are appointed, they are there until age 75 unless they choose to resign. Several

of his appointees, notably Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau, have been embarrassments. The Liberals have had their own share of embarrassments, notably Senator Andrew Thompson, who was living in Mexico and rarely attended the Senate. What Trudeau has done is take the conversation about the Senate to another level, and that is worthwhile. However, there are problems with a completely non-partisan Senate, given that the government’s bills must be passed by the Senate and an unelected body can only delay and amend those bills so much, Appointed Senators simply have no accountability to taxpayers.

There are also problems with having a panel of prominent Canadians vet potential appointees. Such a panel will almost certainly be tilted towards the establishment, largely from Ontario and Quebec, and will not have the ability to make courageous recommendations from outside their spheres of interest. Nonetheless, it is better to take a step towards Senate reform while waiting for a Supreme Court of Canada ruling on how the Senate can be changed, and Trudeau has done just that. However, he has no way to force them to resign, because once they are appointed, they are there until age 75 unless they choose to resign. —Black Press

B.C. Views Tom Fletcher

T

here are two reasons why the B.C. government is appealing the latest court ruling that damns its conduct, assesses damages of $2 million plus lawyer bills and appears to hand the B.C. Teachers’ Federation the keys to the treasury. The first is practical politics. The legislature reopens Feb. 11, ironically right after Family Day. An

appeal will give rookie Education Minister Peter Fassbender the cover he will need during the daily 30 minutes of sniper fire that is Question Period. Rise. “It’s before the courts, Madam Speaker.” Sit. Even the trigger-happy Premier Christy Clark will be staying in her trench, after the bleeding wound she received from Justice Susan Griffin last week. The second reason is practical economics. The 2014 budget has gone to press. Government lawyers told the court that retroactively returning to 2001 classroom rules could cost $500 million, an estimate Griffin dismissed as “speculative.” It could include compensation to retired teachers for earnings they gave up. This retroactive lump would be on top of the ongoing costs, running to hundreds of millions more as 60 school districts try to reassemble the world of 2002. This union victory began when the Supreme Court

of Canada invented a constitutional right to collective bargaining in 2007, based on “freedom of association” in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The BCTF is piggybacking on that landmark decision, in favour of the Hospital Employees’ Union, after Gordon Campbell ran roughshod over their sweetheart contract from the Glen Clark years. That one was settled for $85 million, including retroactive payments. In case there are parents and taxpayers who still believe that all would be calm had the NDP won the 2013 election, allow me to put that to rest. NDP leader Adrian Dix took to his Facebook page a couple of days after last week’s ruling, joining calls for an apology from Clark. That would be for what Justice Griffin characterized as deliberately provoking a strike to build public support for the latest of a long line of settlements imposed on

teachers. Within minutes, Dix received this caustic response from Tara Ehrcke, president of the Greater Victoria teachers’ union. “But where was the NDP during the election campaign?” Ehrcke asked Dix. “You committed a measly $100 million – a third of what it will take to restore class sizes and less than the [NDP] platform in 2009, and only pocket change more than the Liberals’ Learning Improvement Fund of $75 million.” Note the mindset of this prominent member of the radical fringe that controls the BCTF. “A measly $100 million.” An extra $25 million? “Pocket change.” This is the same union boss who demanded that hundreds of teachers be hired this week so reorganizing current classes in the middle of the school year to make them smaller by one or two students. Parents and students would endure yet another major disruption of the

public school system. And who needs an increase in rural ambulance service or drug and alcohol treatment for street kids. Let’s get those teacherlibrarians back in schools, and slightly reduce class sizes to offset declining enrolment! No government, B.C. Liberal, NDP or Green Party, can let its unions control their own payroll, just as no private company can. That goes double for this union, which had its own obvious role in provoking an illegal strike in 2012. It made outrageous benefit demands and cancelled extra-curriculars for months before it even specified its wage demand. Bargaining, if you can call it that, resumes this week. Both sides need to cease fire. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @tomfletcherbc Email: tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Art is more than three men and a painting Characterdriven play first spied by director nearly two decades ago at world premiere

Such is the case in Yasmina Reza’s play Art, which opens on Gateway Theatre’s MainStage this week. It’s a story centred around the different ways we perceive art—and whether friendships can outlast bickering. In Art, a 70-minute black comedy, the painting is a fourby-five white work, whose viewers—if they squint—might see a few subtle lines. It’s bought for a handsome sum by art lover Serge, who in doing so sets off a firestorm in his circle of friends. They’re not sure what to make of it. In the director’s chair is Stephen Drover, who watched the world premiere of the play’s English language adaptation in London nearly 20 years ago. He said it was remarkable to see a play about relationship strife that involves three men—as opposed to the usual male-female couple. “I remember thinking that it was a wonderfully slick, argumentative, very male play,” said Drover in an interview. “It’s not about men who don’t know how to talk to each other, it’s about men who are actually quite coherent and very articulate. I thought this was really quite sophisticated.” Drover, who is also artistic director at Rumble Theatre and founder of Pound of Flesh Theatre, grew up in Newfoundland and fell into theatre “purely by accident.” He was pre-med in university, but followed a friend

Richmond Review · Page 9

arts & entertainment Art inspired by a real-life experience From Page 7 There’s Serge, a divorced dermatologist who enjoys modernist works. There’s Marc, an aeronautical engineer and longtime friend of Serge with a disdain for modern culture. And there’s Yvan, a tolerant fellow, unhappy with life and working at the family business of his future wife. Marc thinks the painting is a waste of money. Tension results. Neither are willing to back down, and Yvan’s neutrality only fuels the feud. Playwright Reza developed the idea after a similar encounter with a friend. In her case, she and her blank-canvasloving friend agreed to disagree. The play shows how the situation could have been different had their friendship lacked strength. Director Drover said it’s a character driven play that doesn’t rely on special effects to deliver the message. “I like actors on stage dealing with each other—debating and arguing and trying to effect change in each other. This play really is that. There’s no scene changes, there’s no costume changes, there’s very few sound

queues. It’s three men just trying to change each other’s lives.” Marc, Serge and Yvan will likely appear familiar to audiences for their arguments around a single prop—a painting that, if nothing else, succeeds in getting people talking. “What’s more important than the artwork itself is the discussion that it opens up,” said Drover. “These guys argue about what is art. In the end it has to have some value because it made them talk to each other in ways that they didn’t before— where they wouldn’t have if they hadn’t encountered this painting with nothing on it.”

There have been many fulfilling decisions I have made during my working years but none as positive as the decision made 17 years ago to build a career in Real Estate. The one decision which I have never looked back on was joining RE/MAX. I was impressed with the high exposure of the RE/MAX brand name and the added confidence it brought to my clients. When looking for a successful start in real estate, and “average” is just not good enough, work with the most professional real estate agents in the world and choose RE/MAX.

Author’s night at Chapters An Abbotsford children’s author is among the authors who will be reading at a Thursday night Local Author’s Night at Chapters in Richmond Since they were little, Diane Welch’s kids have been blaming a “Mr. Nobody” for anonymous misdemeanours around the house. Lost shoes and a mess in the kitchen are all the fault of this invisible creature. Taking this in stride, the Abbotsford mother has transformed the running household joke into the star character of a children's book entitled Introducing Mr. Nobody. Many of the nine stories in the book are nearly true, such as unknown characters always getting into the kitchen’s baking supplies. Welch will be at Chapters on Thursday, Feb. 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Also appearing will be Rosella Leslie, T. Rae Mitchell, Mauro Azzano and Sarah Lane.

Sockeyes’ depth key in team’s ongoing fortunes by Don Fennell Sports Editor Across all sports, a common theme among elite teams is depth. The Richmond Sockeyes certainly fit the bill. Though the Sockeyes began the 2013-14 season with a lineup many felt signalled a rebuild—following the team’s successful ascent to the Western Canadian Junior B championship—they remain one of the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s premier squads. Going into this Thursday’s home date with the Mission Icebreakers (7 p.m. at Minoru Arenas), the Sockeyes lead the Tom Shaw Conference with a 29-5-2-3 record and are only a single

point back of the Harold Brittain Conference-leading Aldergrove Kodiaks for the overall league lead with a game in hand. After recently having their 16-game winning string snapped in a 5-4 loss to Aldergrove on Jan. 29, Richmond quickly returned to its winning ways by defeating Ridge Meadows Flames 5-1 the following night back at Minoru Arenas and then outscored Port Moody Panthers 6-2 Saturday in Port Moody. The Sockeyes have achieved all this success while seldom, if ever, having their entire lineup intact. And that’s coach Judd Lambert’s fondest wish. “The focal point is getting healthy and rested, which

will be difficult to do with five games in the next two weeks,” he says. “But you can only play with who you’ve got. And our (affiliate players) have been at all our practices semi-regularly anyway so we’re fairly cohesive to begin with.” With the playoffs set to begin the week of Feb. 17, there’s not much time to fine tune things. But Lambert is generally pleased with the way his team has been playing—particularly over the last several weeks. He expects their playoff success will depend largely on how hard they’re willing to work and their level of determination. But, he says, the Sockeyes will be much more formidable if “all the guys are healthy

Pacific Golf Academy State of the art Indoor Training Facility

and rested.” “I think we’ve gradually gotten better in all aspects of our game,” he said. “But we always have to make sure we’re (cognizant of our defensive responsibilities) and we’re not giving away the puck when it’s on our sticks.” •Last week was a productive one for Dominic Centis. The Sockeyes’ 20-year-old defenceman had back-to-back multiple-point games against Ridge Meadows (two assists) and Port Moody (a goal and three assists) and earned first star honours in the latter. He now has career highs in goals (11) and points (37) through 36 games-third-best on the Sockeyes.

A

new vision for aging is coming to Richmond.

CARP, formerly the Canadian Association for Retired Persons, opened its 60th chapter in Richmond this November. With a goal of sparking “connections” between not only seniors but between all the different groups in the community, CARP Richmond is well on its way with close to 1,000 new members already. Through a partnership with ZoomerMedia, CARP is hoping to reinvent how aging is viewed in Canada. With a bigger and bigger percentage of the population moving towards their golden years, Patrick Von Pander, chair of communications and membership, believes that successful aging is all in how you think about it. "It's about attitude and mindset to a large degree," he says. Moses Znaimer, the founder of ZoomerMedia and the new president of CARP, believes that keeping active and connected to the community is crucial to his new vision of aging. To that end, he's renamed CARP members as “Zoomers” or “boomers with zip.” According to Von Pander, these events are meant to be a gateway into enjoying a more active and stimulating lifestyle. "We hope to be able to create the environment for people to make those connections and start those new friendships that hopefully will carry on beyond and in between the monthly events." While CARP members will receive everything from free events to discounted insurance and gym memberships, secretary-treasurer Susan Peters believes that CARP's presence in Richmond will benefit the whole community. “In any community, the stronger each portion is the more the entire community [will gain] from having seniors vibrant and well.” CARP chair Dr. Victor Pauls believes that that vibrancy can come through staying active, both physically and mentally. "Mind stimulation is just as important as physical stimulation. You need to keep your body and your mind active." What people need is “a reason to live,” adds Becky Herrmann, chair of communications and membership, “they are going to see a lot of 'Zoomers with zip' [at CARP] and that's contagious.” CARP Richmond will be hosting nine different events this year alone, starting with the Successful Aging Valentine's Party on Wednesdsay, Feb. 12 at the Trinity Lutheran Church. Tickets can be purchased online for $15 at www.CARPRichmond.evenbrite.ca or at the door for $20 starting at 6:30pm the day of. Also in February is the 2014 Vancouver ZoomerShow which takes place at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Feb. 22 and 23 and tickets start at $8 and can be purchased at zoomershow. com. For more information about CARP Richmond call 604-278-1434 or visit CARP.ca.

Capacity and Aging; The Older Mind (and Sally Magnusson’s new Book) Lawyers who practice in the area of Wills and Estates frequently consider and examine the issue of capacity. The issue typically arises with respect to clients’ abilities – to make a Will, a gift, a Power of Attorney and so on. Lawyers are required to make capacity assessments in such situations and in fact we see it more frequently these days. With the rising proportion of elderly persons in societies across the world, research into capacity (and specifically into dementia) seems to be increasing. And it’s needed, because of the complexity of the problem. Governments face the concern of how to treat and otherwise look after afflicted persons. Already the Canadian health system is strained. Research will help find some of the answers. Here are a couple of reports about research, and about an individual. Both are fascinating. The Older Mind A January article from the New York Times revealed some surprising news about memory. Apparently, speed and accuracy of memory start slipping at age 25! The article looks at an aspect of cognitive decline called data mining. Researchers in Germany experimented with word retrieval. They assumed older persons know more words than younger persons, from being alive longer. One experiment examined what an older brain does to retrieve a word. When they incorporated the knowledge of more words (for the elderly) into word retrieval, “deficits” in advanced learning in aging persons disappeared. The lead author of the research, Dr. Michael Ramscar, said as follows: “What shocked me, to be honest, is that for the first half of the time we were doing this project, I totally bought into the idea of age-related cognitive decline in healthy adults. But the simulations fit so well to human data that it slowly forced me to entertain this idea that I didn’t need to invoke decline at all.” The writer of this article, Mr. Benedict Carey, suggests that the study may seem revolutionary, but it won’t overturn a century of research. Scientists still believe brain function slows with age. But, the study will help challenge how steep age-related decline really is. Scientists investigate and consider “fluid��� intelligence and “crystallized” intelligence. Fluid intelligence refers to short term memory, analytical reasoning and the ability to tune out distractions. Crystallized intelligence refers to accumulated knowledge, vocabulary and expertise. Dr. Zach Hambrick, a Michigan State University psychologist, says that the German scientists conclude an increase in crystallized intelligence can account for a decrease in fluid intelligence. Dr. Hambrick’s studies show that crystallized intelligence climbs between ages 20 and 50, then plateaus. The fluid intelligence, however, drops by more than 50% between ages 20 and 70. He concludes that it will take more time to find whether one type of intelligence affects the other. For now, the challenge to the knowledge of cognitive decline can explain “senior moments”. Put another way, the author concludes, “it’s not that you’re slow. It’s that you know too much.” Where Memories Go Mamie Baird Magnusson might have been a good person for Dr. Hambrick or Dr. Ramscar to have participate in their studies. Ms. Magnusson is the subject of her daughter, Sally Magnusson’s new book, called Where Memories Go: Why Dementia Changes Everything. The senior Ms. Magnusson was born in Scotland in 1925. Her early talent as a journalist got her a job at the Sunday Post, and then in 1947 she moved to the popular Scottish Daily Express, in Glasgow. She met a fellow journalist there (Magnus Magnusson), and married him in 1954. The couple had five children (Sally is the eldest). Ms. Magnusson enjoyed a prolific career as a journalist, writer and mother. Mr. Magnusson died of cancer in 2007 and Ms. Magnusson died with Alzheimer’s Disease in 2012. Sally Magnusson is a well known TV reporter in Scotland (for the BBC). When her mother showed signs of dementia, she started writing, perhaps in an effort to cope with the disease that took hold and caused her mother to slip away. From the book (after an incident in which her mother did not recognize her daughter/ author, and angrily rebuked her greeting): “I have a sudden impulse to rush around the house waking up those five grown up children of mine, all gathered under one roof for Christmas. I want them to know that what is in my own heart for them at this moment is me, the essence of me. Does this make any kind of sense, Mum? I am asking them to believe that if this disease should one day hunt me down, if it should ever cause me to stare into their eyes with the icy dislike I saw in yours, it comes from a diseased brain and not from the place I will call my soul, which is theirs for ever. And thinking about what I feel for them, I understand you. This is the moment, in a cold house in the early hours of Christmas morning, that I realize it is the same for you. Whether or not I ever see another sign of it, you love me. Of course you do. Brain experts may shake their heads, but I don’t care. This is heart-sense. I have you safe in my possession. You are you”. The book not only eloquently shows the strength of the bonds in this special family, but also how arduous was the journey of the mother and her family during her steady decline. Legally speaking To be sure, there is a long way to go on the road to discovery of a successful treatment(s) for Dementia type illnesses. But the quality of research illustrates that we are on the road. Meanwhile, Ms. Magnusson’s book vividly portrays the struggle so many families have when a member is afflicted. Capacity is now in the legal profession a more significant topic for discussion and analysis than ever before. The (perhaps growing) challenge for a Lawyer lies in the effort to assess whether a person at a certain point has the necessary capacity to make the document, exercise the judgment, make the gift, and so on. It’s a problem we will see more often.

Amanda Oye upporters of the Richmond Christmas Fund got together last Friday for breakfast at the River Rock Casino Resort to celebrate another successful holiday season.

S

The breakfast was “to thank everyone for what they have done,” said Wayne Duzita, the Christmas Fund chair. It was also to show what the Christmas Fund was able to accomplish this past year. In 2013, the Christmas Fund helped 1,855 people, 602 of whom were children. Hundreds of people put in thousands of combined volunteer

hours, and numerous organizations and individuals hosted events and helped by contributing toys and monetary donations. “It’s just overwhelming,” said Duzita. “It created a recognition for the challenges that people face at Christmas when they are going through difficult times.” Now that the 2013 season is over, work for 2014 has already begun and as it is Duzita’s last year as the chair of the fund, he has ambitious goals. He would like to see the already impressive board of 60, known as the Christmas Fund Roundtable, or the Fund’s “army”, grow even larger. “I want to get the army to 100 members,” he said. Duzita would also like to double the fund’s grocery voucher program. Amanda Oye covers the social scene for The Richmond Review. Reach her at amanda. oye@telus.net.
