Richmond City Hall’s plan for a new pool, seniors centre and pavilion at Minoru Park could involve a single integrated facility or three separate buildings. A third option could see one building with fully separated spaces. On Monday, senior staff presented city council options for configuring $79.6 million in planned park facilities. Recommended is one 109,000-square-foot building with some shared areas—an option that provides “the least duplication of support spaces, therefore increasing the programmable space available to all users,” said city managers Serena Lusk and Jim Young in a staff report. “It is also consistent with trends and best practices and provides the most flexibility to the city for the future as needs and demographics change.” The design includes multi-

purpose rooms, which could be used by seniors during the day, and pool-related functions in the evening. Other shared spaces would include washrooms, reception area, staff area, commercial kitchen and fitness centre. Dedicated spaces for the pool, seniors centre and pavilion are also part of the plan. The model maximizes space without duplicating support areas, but requires greater “compromises” and “co-operation among user groups and individuals,” according to city staff. Civic politicians referred the file back to staff Monday for more work and consultation. Mayor Malcolm Brodie also asked staff to arrange a tour of Edmonds Community Centre in Burnaby—a $40-million, 85,000-square-foot facility that opened last year, incorporating pools, gymnasiums, a fitness centre, seniors’ facilities and multipurpose rooms. The Minoru Park facility is scheduled to open in fall of 2017. More detailed plans are expected to be presented to council in July, before council’s decision on building form this fall. Construction is prompting a change in some sports fields and park uses. A field relocation project—creating room for the facility—is scheduled to be finished in October.

New political organization formed in Richmond Richmond Community Coalition wants to increase voter turnout by Bhreandáin Clugston and Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporters A new electoral organization has been launched in Richmond. The Richmond Community Coalition has been founded to increase voter turnout and improving community engagement in the next Richmond civic election. Launching the coalition at a Monday afternoon press conference were former city councillor and MLA Rob Howard, community activist Julie Halfnights and school trustee Kenny Chiu. “Our grassroots coalition’s goal is to create more opportunities for Richmond citizens to get involved in our municipal government – and get more people voting in the November

municipal election,” said Howard. The coalition is planning a townhall meeting July 15 and will create a formal board by September. Howard said the coalition will endorse good candidates. “Does that mean we’ll be running candidates in the next election?” Howard said in a press release. “The answer is yes—we want to make the election more accessible to Richmond citizens who want to run for local office, to make Richmond a better place.” The organization was formed by a “group of Richmond community activists” which aside from Howard, Halfnights and Chiu includes community volunteers Wayne Duzita, Sylvia Gwozd and Matt Pitcairn and Michael Chiu. Howard said the coalition’s goal is to create more opportunities for citizens to get involved in municipal government “and get more people voting in the November municipal election.” Voter turnout in Richmond has been dropping over the years and was 24% in the 2011 municipal election. Halfnights said attracting young vot-

Julie Halfnights, Rob Howard and Kenny Chiu launched the Richmond Community Coalition at a press conference on Monday.

ers is a big part of the coalition’s goal. “Richmond has come a long way, but we need more citizens to be a part of future planning, and that starts with ensuring more of our citizens take an interest in that planning – and that the city becomes more active in encouraging that participation,” Halfnights said. The formation of the new electoral organization was attended by

one veteran councillor who recently split quietly from his long-time allies. Coun. Ken Johnston, who previously ran with Richmond First Voters Society, was the only city councillor at the event. Johnston could not be reached for comment, but long-time city council colleague and friend Derek Dang said he wasn’t aware Johnston was at Monday’s announcement.

“I think that Ken is looking at his options,” Dang said Tuesday afternoon. “I don’t believe he’s going to be running with us. He’s got every right to be anywhere he wants to be. I didn’t know he was there (at Richmond Community Coalition’s press conference).” Dang was reluctant to reveal much about Johnston’s departure, other than to say it was a “mutually agreed upon thing. He wants to go in another direction.” Dang said he’s known Johnston for three decades, and their friendship will remain unchanged. “I look forward to Ken getting reelected...Nothing’s going to change as far as my working relationship with him, my friendship.” Regarding the future of Richmond First, Dang said: “Everything is fine as far as I can tell. We’re a united group. No signs of upheaval or anything like that. We’re committed to the community.” Coun. Bill McNulty, also a part of Richmond First and who received the most vote among councillors, could not be reached for comment.

Home Depot fundraiser aims at helping homeless youth Local Orange Door Project fundraiser supports Covenant House in Downtown Vancouver by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter For dozens of Richmond youth, finding a safe and stable place to call home hasn’t been easy over the past few years. But Home Depot outlets across Canada are pledging to change that, with a big hand from its customers. As part of a three-year pledge worth $10 million announced last October, Home Depot’s Orange Door Project will support renovation and repair projects and programs earmarked to provide youth access to a stable environment where they can feel safe and learn life skills. Michelle Clausius, associate director at Covenant House Vancouver, said many Richmond youth have turned to Covenant House for help. According to statistics, 25 youth identified themselves as from Richmond, between July 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2013. But Clausius noted that not all youth are eager to share their histories. “Some youth don’t say where they are from, so the number is likely higher,” she said. The fact that Home Depot has selected Covenant House both increases public awareness of

Homeless youth • Youth are one of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population in Canada • One in five shelter users in Canada are youth • Other youth projects are planned in Nanaimo, Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, Vernon and Chilliwack

the shelter but also provides critical fundraising to operate the facility. “It’s a great advocacy effort for us in the community, because people respect that company,” Clausius said of Home Depot. Covenant House operates out of two buildings and operates a number of programs, including one that actively reaches out to those youth who are “street entrenched,” she said. There’s a 54-bed shelter, which operates on a first-come-first-served basis, and is open to youth until their 24th birthday. It also operates a Rights of Passage transitional living program for 25 young people whose lives have stabilized, but are still looking for a pathway to independence, she said. Covenant House operates 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, and relies on mostly-private funding to keep afloat. Covenant House works with other agencies and associations to improve the condition of families and children.

Covenant House in Downtown Vancouver was recently the beneficiary of a Hugh Boyd Secondary school fundraiser, which collected more than 1,000 pairs of socks for underprivileged youth. Now Home Depot’s Orange Door Project aims to provide homeless youth a safe and stable place to stay.

Through the Orange Door Project, customers shopping at Richmond’s Home Depot store can donate $2 at the checkout to purchase a paper Orange Door. The campaign runs until July 2, with 100 per cent of proceeds—also raised at the Home Depot stores in Vancouver—supporting Covenant House in Vancouver. “The Orange Door Project is committed to put-

ting an end to youth homelessness by providing youth with the housing and life skills they require to establish independent, productive lives,” said Peg Hunter, chair of The Home Depot Canada Foundation. “Together, with the support of our customers, we can help Canada’s most vulnerable youth realize their potential and build brighter futures.”

City council is set to consider another case of a developer having a change of heart on affordable housing. Intracorp’s Hollybridge Limited Partnership had planned to construct a standalone building with 29 low-end market rental housing units as part of a multi-tower development of 586 homes in the Oval Village. Now it’s seeking the city’s permission to pay $4.6 million into the city’s affordable housing fund instead of building affordable living units. The figure is based on the five per cent affordable housing required in exchange for a density bonus. Intracorp’s development site, at 6888 River Rd. and 6900 Pearson Way, is near the Richmond Olympic Oval. Floor area originally intended for affordable housing would be used for market residential units and additional street-level commercial space, according to a staff report. City staff are recommending council approve the change, and funnel

the cash into an affordable housing project planned for city-owned land at 8111 Granville Ave., and scheduled for completion in spring 2016. The addition of commercial space on the new road of Pearson Way would be “positive and can be expected to contribute to the vitality of this street,” according to a report from planner Suzanne CarterHuffman. If council approves, Intracorp wouldn’t be the first developer to trade the affordable housing requirement for cash. A year ago city council voted 8-1 to grant the exclusion to developers of two new riverfront communities. Council dropped the low-cost rental housing requirement for River Green, near the oval, and Parc Riviera, near River Rock Casino Resort. The move meant a loss of 100 affordable homes at the development sites, but netted the city $14.1 million for purpose-built affordable housing projects. Two such projects are already on the go. More than 100 subsidized rental housing units are planned for 8111 Granville Ave., a project bankrolled by $19.8 million in developer funds. Developers have also contributed to the $11.7 million the city is providing to Kiwanis Towers across from Richmond Centre, a Polygon project bringing 296 units of affordable rental housing for seniors to Richmond.

Richmond Mounties are warning the public to avoid leaving valuables inside their cars after a rash of thefts. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said there’s been a noticeable spike in thefts of electronic devices from cars. “You shouldn’t leaving anything in your car, especially computers, cell phones and personal identification,” she said. Police have stepped up patrols in trouble areas, while crime prevention volunteers have been putting notices on cars where they see items inside. “Take a minute to pick up your stuff, because thieves only need seconds to smash your window if you don’t,” she said. —Martin van den Hemel

•BCTF president Jim Iker said the provincial government “squandered an opportunity to get our students back to school.”

•BCPSEA chief negotiator Peter Cameron said he doesn’t have full clarification of the status of the union’s “truckload of benefit proposals.”

School strike on as talks collapse by Tom Fletcher Black Press An exchange of proposals between the B.C. Teachers’Federation and government negotiators on the weekend dissolved in acrimony Monday, with a full-scale strike in public schools already underway. Negotiators for the BCTF and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association met until midnight Sunday, as the union moved from rotating strikes to a full walkout with a“study session”on Monday. The two sides contradicted each other on the substance of the wage offers, and each said the next move is up to the other if a deal is to be reached. BCTF president Jim Iker said a complete strike is “imminent,” after union members endorsed the move in their second province-wide strike vote. In the latest offer presented Friday, the teachers union has asked for a five-year deal, with an eight per cent wage increase, and a $5,000 signing bonus. “This puts us within one per cent of the government’s proposal,”Iker said. Instead, the province reduced its offer from 7.25 per cent to seven per cent, Iker said. Iker said the provincial government

“squandered an opportunity to get our students back to school.” BCPSEA chief negotiator Peter Cameron said he still does not have a full position from the BCTF that clarifies the status of the union’s “truckload of benefit proposals.” Cameron said the union’s latest wage offer is a reduction from its previous position, but when increased benefit costs are factored in, it is still more than twice as much compensation as other public sector union settlements. BCPSEA posted a comparison of the two wage offers Monday. It describes the BCTF proposal as a $5,000 signing bonus followed by increases of 3.5% in the first year and 1.5% in each of the next three years, for a total raise of 8% plus compounding. BCPSEA’s latest offer includes a $1,200 signing bonus for an agreement by the end of the school year, and a series of wage increases up to May 2019 that includes “economic stability dividend” amounts depending on B.C.'s economic performance. The B.C. Labour Relations Board has extended its essential services order to include provincial final exams and marks for graduating students.

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter An employee of the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority is facing more than two dozen charges of theft under $5,000 following a Richmond RCMP investigation. Yuriy Ruvinskiy, 38, made his first appearance in Richmond provincial court last week, where he was charged with 26 counts of theft. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Stephanie Ashton wasn’t able to provide

many details, but said the charges against Ruvinskiy were first laid in March of this year and Mounties were brought into the investigation at the request of the transport authority. Ruvinskiy was working at Vancouver International Airport, screening passengers going through security, she added. Air transport authority spokesperson Mathieu Larocque said the investigation was launched after one passenger made a theft allegation against an employee. Ruvinskiy, who was directly employed by G4S, was immediately suspended, Larocque said. He later resigned. The allegations are that the employee stole cash. After Richmond RCMP were brought in to investigate, they reviewed security footage before the 26 counts

the air transport authority first came into existence in 2002, there have been only three cases involving allegations of theft. “We want to ensure the public knows this

is rare,” he said, noting 50 million passengers are screened at airports across Canada every year. He said steps have been put in place to protect both passen-

gers and staff, including video surveillance cameras. According to court records, Ruvinskiy is expected to enter a guilty plea, and is next scheduled to appear in

Richmond provincial court on July 8. Crown counsel GerriLyn Nelson declined to comment, and defence lawyer Martin Cuthbertson did not reply to an interview request.

“Liberal” is becoming one of the most ill-defined words in Canadian politics. Here in B.C., a Liberal is a Conservative, or at least a fiscal conservative, bent on balancing budgets and battling big unions to force them to recognize today’s world of low growth and low inflation. In Ottawa, a Liberal is currently whatever Justin Trudeau wakes up and decides. One day he’s a libertarian who wants to legalize marijuana, and

the next he’s in touch with his inner Taliban, issuing a moral edict on abortion. In Ontario, Premier Kathleen Wynne saved her gutshot Liberal government by limping to the left of the NDP, promising to spend lots more borrowed money and build lots of transit. This is in a have-not province with an operating deficit that is currently running north of $12 billion. For comparison purposes, B.C.’s deficit swelled briefly beyond $3 billion in the wake of the Great Recession of 2009, and the books stayed in the red until last year as the B.C. Liberals unwound the Harmonized Sales Tax and repaid a $1.6 billion HST transfer allowance to Ottawa. You think B.C.’s energy policy is a disaster? Check out Ontario, where the cops are still investigating the $1 billion cancellation of plans to construct two natural gas-fired power

plants before the 2011 election. The gas plants were to stabilize erratic output from wind and solar power, a European-style climate change gesture that involved Ontario ratepayers giving a huge subsidy to Korean tech giant Samsung. The Ontario Liberals clung to power in part by promising a provincial pension scheme on the same scale as the Canada Pension Plan. B.C. has a similar pension program in the works, to be offered to the two thirds of small business and self-employed people who don’t have a group plan with their employer. Ours would, of course, be voluntary. Not so in Ontario, where large and small businesses will be required to cough up half of the required pension payments. The Ontario model is dumb on several levels. It is to be imposed just

as the baby boom retirement wave breaks across Canada’s most populous province, increasing risk that the pension pool may run dry. And it sticks small business with a new payroll tax in a province that has lost much of its traditional manufacturing base and needs to innovate. Here’s the funny part, if you don’t live in Ontario. Wynne tabled her spending-spree, deficit-bedamned budget in an effort to convince the NDP to keep propping up the Liberal minority government and avoid an election. Instead, she won a majority and now has to implement her pie-in-thesky promises. Ontario is bracing for a downgrade in its credit rating based on the election result, and is about to go into provincewide bargaining with public service unions who want their share from the Liberal money tree.

Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak ran on a plan that sounded similar to the one presented by Christy Clark in 2013: hold the line on spending, balance the budget, reduce the size of government, stimulate job creation. Hudak was rejected for a second time, and resigned the leadership on election night. B.C. voters now have three years to see how the Ontario version of Liberal government plays out, compared to the B.C. Liberal version. For us, much depends on resource development, including forest products, natural gas and other trade with Asia. If all goes well here, B.C. can continue to send transfer payments to the fantasyland of Ontario. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Teacher won’t let government stop him from caring Editor: I awoke at 4 a.m. Tuesday morning finally understanding the past month’s lockout of teachers. I awoke realizing that I had said the words, “I’m not sure I care” when my wife had asked if I was going to do picket duty during the strike of teachers. You see, I’m retiring this June from 37 years teaching or, maybe I’m already retired, there is this much uncertainty in education in BC. The contract negotiations that are ongoing will not affect me directly and there is no benefit in it for me. For the last month I have often said, “The lockout of teachers does not make sense? What does the government gain by preventing me from helping students at lunch and recess? What does the government gain from stopping me from collaborating with other teachers? What do they gain by stopping me from doing professional development to improve student learning?” Now I get it. For the last 20 years my vision statement has been, “A teacher who cares!” I wanted my life to make a difference and if this statement was on my tombstone, then it was a life well spent. How could I have been so affected by the current state of education to say, “I’m not sure I care”? I understand that the 10% cut to our pay and the lockout days at the end of June was to hurt us financially and to put pressure on us-to divide us. After all, the declining value of our contract has made if tight for many teachers. They can’t afford to lose these monies. At the same time, I understand that the Olympics were expensive. The pine beetle infestation has been expensive. Downturns in the resource and energy sectors have been expensive. The improper implementation of the HST forcing it to be repealed has been expensive. Money is tight for the government. When money is tight in the family, good parents do not cancel their children’s allowances so they can still have their lattes and golf games. Good parents do not sell their children. Good governments do not sell their children short. My email signature for the last three months has included a Jose Popoff quote, “Teaching is not my job, it is my passion! Getting better at it – that is my job.”The government’s lockout of teachers’ helping students at lunch (and recess), of limiting the amount of time we have for tutoring and coaching them, of limiting marking their work to give them feedback to improve their learning, of preparing

classes well have been to attack and divide teachers because we do care. Think of any parent’s joy at seeing their child take their first step or to speak their first word. We teach for the constant joy of these moments. “Our students” and “our children” are interchangeable words for most teachers. We love for them to experience success, to grow, to overcome challenges and to enjoy life and learning. We strive to equip them and nurture them to be confident and to take risks to grow. I WILL NOT let this government stop me from caring. I WILL be picketing with teachers because I refuse to not care. I WILL NOT let them erode my passion. I WILL continue to help teachers to learn and grow and to get better at their jobs. So I will fight for class size and composition. I will use my retirement freedom to search out valuable resources for teachers to improve student learning, to digest, summarize and publish these to aid teachers because the ‘job’ of teaching is extremely complex. My desire is that they can teach with passion. Yes you will find me on picket duty. If you care, you will respond to this open letter and to add your

thoughts, concerns and fears. You can join teachers on picket lines and let the government know that you want them to be a good government and not sell our children short. Fred G. Harwood Hugh McRoberts Secondary Editor: I was extremely angry reading a particular line in the front page article about the full teacher strike set for next week (June 13, 2014). The line that upset me is “For parents with school-aged children, this sets up a challenging scenario, especially for those with kids in elementary school.” This statement suggest that schools are a free day-care service where parents can send their child(ren) from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please remember that school is there to education children. I do understand that having the strike does make it difficult for parents to find other arrangements, but it is worth the inconvenience for a better education system for the students.

Taxing questions of transit

New pool should have ramp, railings Editor: I am a handicapped 91-year-old senior and a frequent user of the Minoru complex. With the rapidly growing population of seniors in Richmond as well as the needs of younger people with physical disabilities to be considered, I wish to strongly advocate for a dedicated smaller pool with an entry ramp and bars all around its edges to accommodate Richmond residents with special needs. Water exercise is often the very best type of physical activity for people such as myself and a specially designed pool with its own lifeguard is a much needed component of the new pool complex. I am currently medically required to travel twice weekly by HandyDART to George Pearson Centre for a one-hour aqua size program. This entails a five-hour, very tiring day. Richmond needs an equivalent facility for people such as myself. Shirley Brown Richmond

Editor: I am hearing more about the mobility tax to support BC Transit. From looking at my property tax and guessing how much transit siphons off every litre of gasoline purchased I believe that transit is one of the biggest single tax items in most households. This from an organization that does not answer to the taxpayer, we have no way of directly questioning transit on how it spends our money.   Of course now they want to tax folks based on how much they drive. The new system would involve buying equipment to detect and record the passing of motor vehicles, buying equipment and hiring personnel to process the fees and of course mail out the bills.   The other way to tax folks based on how much they use their cars is to increase the tax on a litre of fuel. The measuring system is already in use at the pumps, the tax system is already in place

and being used so there is nothing to buy. Every penny charged goes to the tax people. The more you drive the more fuel you buy. Seems simple and cost effective. Here is the problem with single source tax—the taxpayer can easily see how much money is going to transit! By creating a different system we do not see the price of gas go up it is just another hand in our pocket from a different angle.   The problem is that we first have to pay for the new high tech system to collect the tax. In the long run we will pay more—just so we don’t realize how much we are really paying.   I do not want to see the price of fuel go up; I do want to see transit accountable for the money they take from us. I do not want to pay for the wool that is being pulled over my eyes! Scott Stewart Richmond

Child Relocation and Parental Mobility Included in changes to family law found in the Family Law Act are new procedures intended to create certainty for parties and reduce litigation arising from parental mobility issues. The new procedures are summarized here:

2. If the non-relocating guardian does not dispute the notice of relocation, the relocating guardian may relocate with the child. 3. The non-relocating guardian may dispute the notice by filing a court application to prohibit the relocation. 4. If there is no order or written agreement dealing with parenting arrangements, the relocating guardian must obtain court approval to relocate. 5. When a court application is made, either disputing notice of relocation or seeking approval to relocate, the court must consider: the child’s best interest; whether

Summer accessory trends

Celia Leung Fashion Stylist

W

ith summer just around the corner it’s easier to let your personal style shine through accessories rather than layers of clothes. So take some fashion cues from this season’s biggest trends and update your warm weather outfits with chic extras. The art trend is huge for spring and summer, translating to paintsplattered accessories, sculpted heels, handpainted bags and jewelry. Saint Laurent showcased patchworked shoes while elaborated painted

boots were a showstopper at Miu Miu. Another example of the art trend is also one of the most dividing accessories of the spring 2014 season the graffiti printed canvas backpack at Chanel. If you like the look, avoid the hefty price tag and create a version of your own for your next DIY project. All you’ll need is a plain canvas bag, fabric spray paint, and some design ideas. Globally inspired details are also on trend this season. Look for accessories with traditional embroidery, tribal beadwork and fringed tassels in vivid patterns and colours. The idea for this trend is to accessorize with items that look like souvenirs from an exotic trip. Even better if it’s authentic! Try adding a woven clutch in a bright hue to a neutral ensemble for a pop of colour. Florals, of course, are always popular for the

warmer months. Shoes adorned with flowers paraded down the runways at Christian Dior and Dolce & Gabbana, while floral prints made their mark on handbags at Nina Ricci and Christian Louboutin. There are a multitude of ways to incorporate floral accessories to your wardrobe, but for a festive touch try adding a floral pin or headband to your updo at the next party. Gladiators are slowly becoming a classic style for summer sandals. So it’s no wonder another trend for this season is the warrior look. Bold metal cuffs, chunky buckled sandals and multi-finger rings made an impact at the shows. The key is oversized metals such as giant gilded belt buckles, statement necklaces with metal plating, and chokers — thick necklaces worn close to the collar bone. In terms of shoes, mules and slings are

making a big comeback, as seen at Fendi and Celine. Whether low or high heeled, pointy or round, closed or peep toed, designers gave their modern take on the mule. Rochas sported a feathered number, while beach-ready mules made of cork and fringed

canvas were spotted at Chloe. As long as the shoes are backless, they’ll be on trend this season. If heels aren’t your thing, then the sporty footwear trend may be more up your alley. Complete your outfits with athletic accessories such as sneakers and chic

duffel bags. From Prada’s sport sandals to visors at Marni and DKNY, don’t be afraid to pair sporty extras with dresses and skirts. Slides and backpacks are also popular accessories stemming from the sport trend. A more polished alternative to flip-flops, slides can also be dressed with down boyfit jeans or dressed up with maxi skirts. As for purses, bucket bags are the “it” accessory this summer. Roomier than most clutches and the ever so popular crossbody bags, bucket bags were found on the runways at Louis Vuitton and Chloe. Characterized by a structured sack silhouette that clinches at the top like a drawstring, there’s a bucket bag for every style. Look for a studded version if you’re more punk rock, for example. Or if you prefer a more glamorous style, go for a metallic leather bucket bag. Accessories are the

Graduation

Congratulations 2014 Graduates!

Staff working hard to make grad great by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter With the future of the 2013/14 school year still up in the air, district staff have rolled up their sleeves to give grads a nice year-end experience. Richmond Board of Education chair Donna Sargent said Tuesday that while teachers are on strike, others in the district are working hard to make the best of things. The show must go on, Sargent said. And that means valedictories, awards nights, dry grad parties, and graduation nights are going ahead. “We’re trying to keep things as regularly scheduled as possible,” she said. Teachers are a vital part of the team that makes high school graduation such a special annual right of passage for local teenagers. The absence of teachers is “hugely impactful on our students,” Sargent said. Stepping in to the void

is administrative staff, who are doing the work alongside students planning for their future. For this year’s crop of graduates, there are lessons to be learned from what’s unfolding before their eyes. While the B.C. Teachers Federation and the provincial government can’t come to terms on a collective bargaining agreement, there remains dialogue between the two.

As long as there’s communication, there’s hope, Sargent said, adding that she hopes the talk is at the bargaining table, rather than bargaining in the media. “I think everything in life is a lesson.” But at the same time, Grade 12 students have worked their entire lives toward this point. “This is really difficult for students, because they have an end game,” Sargent said.

Chan at career crossroads On the eve of Canada Cup, wheelchair rugby veteran adds coaching to resume by Don Fennell Sports Editor

Enjoy an active independent lifestyle Fun • Friends • Freedom TOURS DAILY 4071 Chatham Street 604.277.4519 The Maple Residences is a Non Profit Society

www.themapleresidences.com

On the eve of the 2014 Canada Cup, one of the game’s greats finds himself at the crossroads of his career. Richmond’s Ian Chan has always been motivated by an insatiable appetite to help his nation reach the top. And as the best in wheelchair rugby gather for the 10th anniversary of this epic international tournament this week at the Richmond Olympic Oval, the fire still burns within. “My motivation has changed throughout my career,” said Chan prior to a workout Tuesday morning. “Early on it was easy to stay motivated because you’re learning a new sport and you’re young and hungry. But then you get to a point where there are injuries to deal with. Now, I feed off

Don Fennell photo Long one of Canada’s mainstays, Ian Chan (left) is looking forward to this week’s 10th Canada Cup at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

the energy of the younger guys and the enthusiasm they bring, while trying to give back whether it be as a mentor or role model to new athletes or through coaching.” While still a major contributor as a player to the national wheelchair rugby team, Chan, 36, is transitioning into coaching having recently been hired as a B.C. regional mentor by the BC Wheelchair Sports Association. It’s a capacity he should have no trouble embracing, having been a longtime mentor to so many teammates including fellow Richmond ath-

lete Travis Murao. BC Wheelchair Sports Association executive director Gail Hamamoto, who helps to oversee the Canada Cup, marvels at Chan’s longevity in, and dedication to, the sport. “He’s a real master of his sport and a real thinker, who is able to bring that quality to coaching. It’s really important to have a mentor like that,” she said. Hamamoto also believes Chan moving into coaching has made him an even better player late in his career. “When you learn about the game from the per-

spective of a coach I think it broadens your abilities as a player,” she said. “For instance you have to look the dynamics that go into team success from a slightly different perspective. Ian has always been a core part of our provincial and national program and that takes a great degree of commitment. And it’s punishing to go through the injuries and keep coming back. But he’s fully committed and continues to excel. The nicest part for me, over the last year, is seeing I think a renewed energy. He’s someone we absolutely rely on, someone who’s always ready and consistent, a player who you can count on to make the play and be smart and that’s what he brings to the game.” The subject of a documentary Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, and featured in the Academy-nominated documentary Murderball, Chan has been somewhat of a poster boy for wheelchair rugby. But he’s most comfortable simply being one of the guys. And like his teammates, he can’t wait for this year’s Canada Cup to get underway. See Page 15

Chan protege Murao reaching his prime as a player From Page 14

“We like to battle with the best to see where we stand heading into a major competition (the world championship is Aug. 1 to 10 in Odense, Denmark),” he said. “What better time to do that.” Though world No. 1 U.S. is passing up this year’s Canada Cup, there will still be plenty to play for, says Chan, including the opportunity for No. 3-ranked Canada to win its first-ever Canada Cup title. It won’t be a walk in the park. “Even with the U.S. not coming we’ll still have most of the teams we’ll see at the worlds (including No. 2 Australia),” said Chan. “And other than the worlds and Paralympic Games, I can’t think of another international competition that is more competitive.” Like Chan, who he considers a close friend and because of his mentorship likens to a big brother,

fellow Richmondite and teammate Trevor Murao was introduced to the sport by Duncan Campbell who invented the game while a recreation therapist at Vancouver’s G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Hospital. “He didn’t really give me a choice,” laughed Murao. “As soon as I was able he took me to some practices and soon I was playing. Pretty much right away I enjoyed the sport. When I first came into the sport Ian was one person who stepped up and took the

time to explain the sport and help me along. Trevor (Hirschfield), who made the team around the same time as me, was another. I played hockey, football and baseball as a kid, but rugby was something new.” After several years learning the craft, and patiently waiting for a starting role to manifest, Murao, 30, is also at a crossroads in his career. While Chan is perhaps in the twilight years, Murao feels he’s just entering his prime.

OBITUARIES GARCIA FERNANDEZ Maria de los Angeles March 26, 1942 - June 08, 2014

With deep sadness the Garcia Fernandez family announces the passing of their dear Aunt Maria who passed away June 8th, 2014 in Veracruz City, Mexico. Have she a peaceful end; for no one knows their own destination. She lost her only one son five years ago…now they are together again. She will be deeply missed by many people in her community. She will be lovingly remembered by everyone who knew her, for she always put the well-being of others ahead of her own. A special heartfelt thank you to all in the novenario and at the cremation agency, La Luz, and to all our families and friends for their words of comfort, special thoughts, deeds and many prayers. We love you forever Aunt; forever love flows from Canada. Psalm 23: a dedication. God bless every one: in Veracruz, Canada, and everywhere. ~ Jesus M. Nino Garcia

May 22, 1928 - June 3, 2014 Doris passed away peacefully on June 3, 2014 at Delta View Life Enrichment Centre, Delta BC. She was preceded by her husband Bill Hartley, mother and father Joan and Herbert, brother Lorne, and sisters Jean and Lois. She is survived by her sister Helen, children Bill (Della), Leslye Szymczak (Peter), Janice Gibson (Brad) and Heather Jones (Michael), grandchildren Aimee, Fraser, Morgan, Becky, Kate, Matt, Joe, Dan, Stuart and Brian and great-grandsons Baron, Sam and Will. Doris was born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan and moved to Vancouver with her family in the early 1930’s. She attended King Edward High School, but left to begin employment at Jantzen of Canada in 1945 until 1986. During those years, Doris met Bill Hartley at Bowen Island and married in 1950, making Vancouver their home until 1957 when they moved to Richmond. They enjoyed life around family, friends and their dream backyard and pool. The happy couple ventured beyond Richmond, on a few tropical holidays before Bill was taken so suddenly. After retirement, Doris went back to school and upgraded her education at Douglas College and began volunteering at Richmond General Hospital and then at Fraserview Care Home where her mother lived her final years. Doris continued to enjoy life with a passion for walks in Steveston, knitting and quilting, gardening, her special times with her children and grandchildren, decorating the family home during festive holidays and occasions. Rest peacefully, Mom/Gramma. We will love you forever. Thank you to the Delta View and Gilmore Gardens staffs for their care and kindness over the past five years. In lieu of flowers a gift to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. A celebration of Doris’ life will be held at a later date.

A bid to o h av ve two Rottweilers released fr rom dogg g y d e ath row was denied by a Richm mond d pro ov in n cii al court judge, who ruled last w week k he e d id d n’t t have jurisdiction to hear the m matte e r.

City lawyer Kevin Westell argued before Judge Dennis Schmidt that the court didn’t have the power to grant an interim release of the dogs before a scheduled hearing on April 10 at Richmond provincial court. Fearing for the welfare of their pets, after learning they hadn’t been walked in months and had ballooned in weight, owner Nav Nijjer and his mother Prabjot Nijjer sought to have the court intervene and release the dogs prior to the court hearing. But it wasn’t all bad news for the Nijjer family, who have seen a significant improvement in the health of their pets, Axel and Paris. They appear to have lost between 10 and 15 pounds each in the past couple of weeks, are being walked daily, and are out in the yard

for a few hours each day, according to lawyer Joe Peschisolido, whose fi firm has been hired by the family after the City of Richmond applied to have the dogs destroyed. The Richmond Review revealed two weeks ago that volunteers and staff ff at the Richmond Animal Protection Society were barred from walking the seized dogs, which have been labelled as dangerous by the city. A society policy had prohibited anyone from walking dangerous dogs, which under normal circumstances would have been seized for a maximum of 21 days. Since they were seized on Oct. 25, following a minor biting incident involving a construction worker who suff ffered a dime-sized contusion to his upper thigh, the dogs have gained an estimated 25 pounds each.

The extra exercise, along with a cha ang ge to their diet, has resulted in a notable up ptic ck in their health, Peschisolido said. The Nijjers are hoping their pets willl be re turned and have built an enclosure th hey say ensures that the dogs never escape ag gain n. The enclosure was inspected by anim mal be haviour specialist Dr. Rebecca Ledge er, who noted there are now three fences—ea ach “at least five feet tall, robust and well-cons stru ucted”—between the Nijjer’s yard and the e ad dja acent Henry Anderson Elementary Scho ool. “These fences prevent school children n from looking into your yard to see the dogs,, and also prevent the dogs from seeing out or coming within 20 feet of the property line,” Led dger wrote.

Football fever in Steveston

T A crowd of people celebrate England’s goal. England ultimately lost to Italy 1-2.

heir team may have lost, but those who came out to Steveston Barbers to gather around a couple of televisions and watch as England played Italy in the World Cup last Saturday afternoon were not disappointed by the festivities. Ecstatic to host a party for the community to come together for England Day, part of World Cup Steveston, the barber shop went all out. “It (was) a brilliant party,” said Iain Mackelworth of

“It’s about passion … your heart has to be in it,” Mackelworth said. People piled into the shop to watch the game, while a huge crowed spilled out onto the sidewalk and crowded together under tents to watch a television that had been set up outside for the occasion. A lot of people came together to make the event a success. “The effort the community has put in is a win,” Mackelworth said.

Around Town Amanda Oye Steveston Barbers. “It (was) very, very British.” There were British cars parked in front of the shop, English flags hanging up all around, British food, an actor dressed up as a British bobby and of course, English jerseys worn by many of the fans who came out to cheer their team on.
