Red flags flew before killing Mental instability noted in previous violent assault BY NELSON BENNETT

nbennett@richmond-news.com

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Pooch in a pouch ... A dog hitches a ride with a cyclist heading down Granville Avenue at Gilbert Road.

Nearly two years before he stabbed 24year-old Charle Dalde to death, Umut Ari had sent up a red flag about his mental state. The 26-year-old Turkish immigrant had been arrested in Richmond in August 2006 for a violent assault. According to documents presented in Supreme Court in Vancouver Friday, Ari had made a startling statement to Cst. Roy Wong of the Richmond RCMP. Ari had been arrested Aug. 8, 2006 for assaulting two people with a knife the night before. While seated in the RCMP crusier after his arrest for the 2006 assault, Ari called Wong’s attention to someone standing just outside the police car. “See that guy over there?’” Wong’s notes quoted Ari as saying. “He’s staring at me. He says I’m gay. I have to kill him.” see Cop page 4

POLICE

Surveillance failed Kembo victim: Lawyer Charles Kembo may be guilty of killing four people, but at least one of his victims might still be alive if police had done a proper job of watching him, alleges Kembo’s lawyer. “Somebody dropped the ball,” says Don Morrison, who is a former police complaints commissioner. He feels the RCMP and IHIT need to explain why they allowed Rita Yeung to

‘They knew that he had Rita in his car for a number of hours,’ Morrison spend several hours alone in a vehicle with Kembo, whom police suspected had already killed three other people who were close to him. “Did they follow the policy, or was the policy deficient?” Morrison asked in an interview with the News. “It’s for the RCMP to explain themselves.” IHIT spokesman Dale Carr said Morrison’s questions were answered during

Kembo’s trial. “We will not be responding to comments made by Kembo’s lawyer on the steps of the courthouse immediately after his client was just found guilty of four counts of first degree murder,” Carr said. Police had electronic surveillance planted in Kembo’s Land Rover by the time he killed Yeung. It included a GPS tracking system and a live audio feed that was being moni-

tored by police. They also sometimes had a live police surveillance team watching him, but for reasons that are not clear, there was no such surveillance the night Yeung was murdered on Sea Island in Richmond near the airport. “They knew that he had Rita in his car for a number of hours,” Morrison told the News. “There was no live surveillance.” see Lawyer page 4

FISHERIES

Loblaw stops selling threatened fish BY NELSON BENNETT

nbennett@richmond-news.com

Seafood lovers will no longer be able to buy Chilean sea bass, orange roughy, skate or shark at Richmond’s Superstore . Loblaw has launched an ambitious sustainable seafood program aimed at educating consumers about threatened species of fish, and removing the four species mentioned above from store shelves and freezers is just the latest move. Whether Fraser River sockeye is also removed will depend largely on this year’s return, not to mention the outcome of the Cohen Commission of Inquiry, said Paul Uys, vice-president of Loblaws’ sustainable seafood initiative. And the type of farmed salmon the store sells in the coming years will depend on new sustainability guidelines being developed by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council. “We’ve undertaken one of the most sustainable seafood commitments, arguably, anywhere in the world,” Uys said at a press conference at the company’s Richmond Superstore Monday. The press conference took place just one day before the Cohen Commission Inquiry, which is looking into the collapse of last year’s Fraser River sockeye, began open hearings. Canada has the longest coastline in the world, and Loblaw is Canada’s largest grocery store chain, so Uys said the company felt it had an obligation to take a lead role in providing consumers with education and choice regarding seafood sustainability. Loblaw’s sustainable seafood initiative has the backing of the World Wildlife Federation-Canada and the BC Seafood Alliance. “It’s a tremendous initiative in promoting sustainable seafood,” said Darcy Dobell, vice-president of the WWF-Canada’s pacific region. Under the program, Loblaw will only be selling seafood and seafood products that have been approved by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). All sustainable seafood products sold through Superstore, Extra Foods and No Frills will bear the MSC label. Asked if the new guidelines also apply to the T&T Asian grocery stores that Loblaw bought last year, Uys said the approach will be a bit different there, as those stores typically sold different kinds of seafood to their Asian customers.

fishery: halibut, pacific hake and albacore tuna, for example. It is expected that Nass, Skeena and Barkley Sound sockeye will also receive MSC approval. Whether Fraser River sockeye ever gets the MSC sticker of approval is a big question mark. B.C. producers have been trying for about 10 years to get Fraser River sockeye certified as a sustainable fishery, but environmental groups have objected. And the collapse of last year’s run could prevent the designation from happening anytime soon. In the past, the Fraser River sockeye had been considered a sustainable fishery, Hutchings said. But asked if the fishery can still be considered sustainable, in light of last year’s collapse, Christina Burridge of the BC Seafood Alliance said: “If 12 million sockeye returns this year? Yes, we’ve got a sustainable fishery.” Salmon farms have been blamed, in part, for contributing to the collapse of wild salmon stocks. Loblaw is still selling farmed salmon, but one of its immediate goals will be to work with the ASC on new guidelines for farmed salmon to ensure whatever product is sold has addressed concerns over things like pollution, disease and feed sources.

Lawyer: Kembo plans appeal Cop: Questioned mental state favours by insisting on testifying in his own defence. “I don’t think he did (help the case), at all,” he said. Police had already bugged Kembo’s Land Rover with an audio transmitter and a GPS tracking system, so they would have been aware that Kembo had picked Yeung up and that he spent several hours driving around with her. They would have also heard that she said she was tired and told Kembo she wanted to go home. Police had set up a special operations team to tail him before, so Morrison wonders why the team was not dispatched that night. It’s a question he says has nagged him throughout the eight-month long trial. “It made me feel extremely uncomfortable. It’s something that really bothered me a lot,” he said. “My assumption is that they have priorities, but it seems to me if you have somebody you suspect for three murders... and two of them are women, it seems to me that should be a priority. They put her at risk - serious risk.” Ironically, it was information police gathered in the Yeung murder that may have clenched the case against Kembo, as all of the evidence against him in the other three deaths was circumstantial. Kate McDerby, a spokesperson for the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, said the commissioner can decide to look into a police investigation, if he feels it is warranted, or an individual can ask for a review. Currently, the commission is not looking into the way police handled the Kembo murder investigation, she said.

Survey

Continued from page 1 Wong wrote in his notebook: “Ari’s mental state is questionable.” It was a similar delusion — that his sexuality was being questioned — that led Ari to stab Dalde to death nearly two years later. For the 2006 assault, Ari was charged with assault with a weapon and uttering threats. He was held overnight for a psychiatric assessment at Surrey pretrial. He was eventually given a conditional discharge and 12 months of probation. When he was arrested in April 2008 for stabbing Dalde to death, it was stated during his preliminary trial that he had an undiagnosed mental disorder — paranoid schizophrenia. Why he had not been diagnosed with schizophrenia — and possibly treated for it - is not clear. Dalde’s father, Cezar Dalde, believes it’s because Ari is not schizophrenic at all, and therefore should be held criminally responsible for killing his son. If a psychiatric assessment had been done and found him schizophrenic, Dalde does not believe the court would have found Ari to be criminally responsible for the assault in 2006. “Why is it the psychiatric (authorities) at the time released Umut Ari? We have to ask who evaluated Umut Ari,” Dalde said. If Ari’s psychotic state was not clear enough in 2006, it is now. Three experts have testified that he is delusional and suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. It manifested in paranoia that centred on Ari’s sexuality. Charle Dalde had just returned home to Richmond after visiting his girlfriend in Surrey and was talking to a friend on his cell phone when he encountered Ari in the Lansdowne Road area, close to Dalde’s home. 06169302

Continued from page 1 Morrison’s questions come on the heels of his client’s life sentence. A nine-man, three-woman jury returned Friday night to find Kembo guilty of four counts of first-degree murder. Justice Sunni Stromberg-Stein imposed the mandatory sentence of life in prison, with no eligibility for parole for 25 years. Morrison said he is already working on an appeal. Kembo’s victims included his ex-wife, Margaret Kembo, and a former lover, Sui Yin Ma, both of whom lived in Richmond. Kembo also lived in Richmond for a time, and ran a couple of businesses here. Kembo was also convicted of killing a former business associate, Arden Samuel, a Vancouver man who was found with his penis cut off and stuffed in his pocket. His last victim was his own stepdaughter, Rita Yeung, who was 21. Her body was found near Grauer Road on Sea Island in Richmond in July, 2005. She was found wrapped in garbage bags wearing only a bra. Her face showed signs of chemical burns, and investigators found Kembo’s DNA in her vagina. On the witness stand, Kembo told a bizarre story in which he confessed to having what he described as an “incestuous relationship” with his stepdaughter. He said he was in the middle of a romantic tryst with her when they were attacked by a gang of extortionists, who kidnapped her. His explanations for why he did not immediately call police after the kidnapping strained credulity, and Morrison admits his client did not do himself any

According to a taped confession to police, Ari told a homicide investigator: “He said, ‘I like your ass.’” Testimony by Dalde’s friend confirmed that no such words were spoken - and both Crown and defence lawyers agree that Ari was hearing voices. After the attack, Ari fled the scene, removed his blood-soaked pants, walked home in his underwear, and told his brother that he had gotten in a fight and had gotten mud on his pants. He then told a somewhat different story the next day. It was his twin brother who turned him into police. In his summations Friday, Ari’s lawyer argued his client was not culpable. “This accused is a man who was not able to distinguish between right and wrong when he killed Mr. Dalde,” said James Bahen. “There is no doubt that Mr. Ari suffers from a major mental illness,” Crown prosecutor Brian MacFarlane agreed. However, the fact he tried to cover up the murder indicates Ari knew that what he had done was morally wrong, MacFarlane added. Moreover, his mental illness manifests in violence. In addition to the attack on Dalde, and the earlier one in 2006, Ari also assaulted fellow inmates at the Colony Farm psychiatric hospital where he has been held since his arrest. And that means Ari is likely to remain incarcerated for a considerable length of time, even if found not responsible due to a mental disorder, according to MacFarlane. “Is he going to get out? No,” MacFarlane speculated outside court Friday. “He won’t be released until the review board is satisfied that he’s not a risk to society. “He’ll be under care for the rest of his life.” Ari is being tried by judge alone. Justice Elliot Myers will give his ruling next Friday, June 18.

THREE COURSE DINNERS Choice of Soup, Greek Salad or Caesar Salad

Greenskeeper told golfer to ‘drop his pants’ When you hear golfers complaining of the lack of etiquette on the course, it usually centres around slow play, unraked bunkers or divots on the fairway. Rarely does it involve being verbally abused by the greenskeeper. But in an altercation that would have made Bill Murray blush in the slapstick golf movie Caddyshack, that’s allegedly what happened at the usually sedate City of Richmond-run West Richmond pitch and putt course. Twice during their round last week, course regulars Daniel Taylor and his friend broke the rules by dropping a second ball each, in an attempt to kill time due to the play ahead of them being exceptionally slow. Each time, Taylor and his buddy were given short shrift by the greenskeeper, even though they were not holding anyone up behind them by playing the extra ball. However, when the players finished their game, Taylor approached the greenskeeper to question why he’d twice sought them out on the course for such a small violation. “The first time we dropped a second ball down he was over at us within a few seconds, saying, ‘is

can’t talk to people like that without any consequences,” he said. “It seems as if, perhaps, there are different rules for city workers, who knows?” When contacted by the News on Monday, the city admitted the comments made were inappropriate and said it would fully investigate the incident. “We agree that this was not in keeping with our customer service standards,” added city spokeswoman Cynthia Lockrey. “We are investigating the matter and will determine if any further action needs to be taken. “The city does apologize for what happened though.” As for Taylor’s “rule breaking” on the course, Lockrey explained that the No Two-Ball rule is for golfers’ safety. “Other golfers on the course are not expecting players to play a second ball. It’s a safety issue,” she said.

wake up and smell the coffee and get rid of this tax. There is nothing more to wait for,” said Vander Zalm. “Stop fighting your own people and cancel the HST now. Cancelling the HST now would not only save British Columbia consumers and businesses from the HST, but it might even save his government. The time is now.” Campaigners were not allowed access to voters’ lists, so they have to take people at their word when they sign that they are Canadian citizens and registered voters. They also have to take them at their word that they have not signed a petition somewhere else. While canvassers have no way of knowing if someone has signed the petition more than once, Elections B.C. does. Once the petition is handed in to Elections B.C., all the names will be verified against voters’ lists. Voters can only sign a petition for the electoral district they live in.

margin of victory. “This means that one of every three signatures would have to be discarded in any one of our ridings for the petition to fail,” said the B.C. Conservative Party’s Delaney. “Our canvassers have been extremely diligent, and with a solid buffer of 35 per cent or more signatures than what is required in each of our ridings, the petition is certain to succeed.” Delaney pointed out that the overall number of signatures has reached 653,240; meaning that more than 40 per cent of voters who voted in the last election have signed the petition. “These are amazing numbers, and prove unequivocally that British Columbians of every persuasion reject the HST,” said Delaney. In the wake of the resignation of former Energy Minister Blair Lekstrom, Fight HST Leader Bill Vander Zalm reiterated his call to Premier Campbell to kill the HST now. “It is time for Premier Campbell to

The Fight HST petition has broken the 15 per cent threshold in all of B.C’s 85 ridings — with Richmond East one of the last ridings to fall into line. Over the last two months the populist campaign, which is led by former premier Bill Vander Zalm has garnered support from across the political spectrum. Campaigners need at least 10 per cent of registered voters to force the provincial government into voting to rescind the HST. Up until two weeks ago, Richmond East had been one of only a few ridings in the entire province not to have reached the campaign’s 15 per cent target. But this week, that all changed and more than 40 per cent of British Columbians who voted in the 2009 election have signed. Fight HST lead organizer, Chris Delaney, says breaking the internal threshold of 15 per cent in all ridings is even more significant than the minimum threshold of 10 per cent set by Elections BC, because it ensures the

HST petition hits magic number

TEL: 604.304.0508

Richmond RCMP have made two arrests in connection with a scam in which immigrants looking for jobs had their passports stolen. Between January and March, RCMP received several complaints of a man posing as an employer. His victims were typically immigrants. The man would ask his intended victims to meet him at a public place and would ask them for documentation, like passports, citizenship cards and driver’s licences. He would then leave with the documents, under the pretense of making photocopies.

However, he would fail to return with the documents. RCMP investigated nine such complaints and on June 8 arrested a young man and woman, both aged 21, in connection with the scheme. Police say the couple tried to extort their victims by demanding money for the return of their identification. RCMP are recommending five counts each of theft under $5,000, fraud, identity theft, and trafficking in identity information. They also face one count of extortion. They are to appear in court Sept. 14.

Property sales take a dive

BY A LAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

House prices continue to rise in Richmond. But the number of sales in the city dipped once

again in May, compared to the same month last year. Consequently, the number of properties listed on the market has spiked over the same period, according to the latest figures

from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV). Detached properties in Richmond enjoyed the second highest rise in the region, jumping 29 per cent TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS Vancouver

from May last year to an average price of $892,150. Prices of attached properties were also second best in the region, rising 19.2 per cent to a benchmark of $519,734. While apartments in the city also rose significantly compared to last May, with the region’s third highest leap, 16.4 per cent to an average $344,716. However, there was a sting in the tail for home sellers, because it may take you longer than you expected to shift your property. That’s because the number of homes on the local market increased dramatically from last year — 377 detached units from 215. Attached and apartments showed a similar rate of increase. But while the choice on the listings market improved for buyers, it seems they’re taking longer to jump, compared to last summer’s relative feeding frenzy. Sales are down in all three categories by roughly 10 per cent over last year and also fell again from April of 2010. “Prospective home buyers in today’s market have a broad selection to choose from in every property type,” said Jake Moldowan, REBGV president in a press release. “Realtors are telling us they’re working with buyers who are not feeling as rushed to make a decision as they did late last year and earlier in the year.” Over the last 12 months, the overall benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver increased 16.7 per cent to $590,662 from $506,201 in May 2009. But, according to the REBGV, market fluctuations are still very local and knowing the area you’re interested in will serve buyers and sellers well. “It’s important for those looking to buy or sell a home to remember that real estate is local and wise real estate decisions are made by those who understand current market conditions at the neighbourhood level,” Moldowan added. Across the region, in terms of number of property listings, last month marked the third consecutive month during which more than 7,000 homes were listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). In April the News reported how Richmond’s rising house prices were second only to West Vancouver.

The United Nations Student Committee at McMath secondary school was so moved by the Richmond News’ series on the Goertzen family’s struggle with Lyme disease, they decided to raise money for young Parker. The student committee presented a cheque, above, for $150 to Parker (front, centre) and his dad, Graham. The News reported earlier this year how Parker and his mom are both fighting Lyme disease, while his older brother, Taylor, has been diagnosed with a Lyme-related condition. McMath’s United Nations Student Committee was founded on the idea of a united, multicultural and diverse club for social responsibility.

He does so many things for us, some secretly when were sleeping, He always keeps us safe, his “Spidey senses” are always working. Mom says he’s really generous cause he gives us all his time, He doesn’t do things for himself, he just makes sure we’re fine.

The Editor, My father was one of eight, mostly tall strapping sons and his father was a man who lived his life as he ploughed his field, in a straight line. His name was Abraham, a thread that ran like ink throughout our family history, and was named after his father. My grandparents were Sarah and Abraham and their lives closely paralleled the Biblical story of another Sarah and Abraham who had an amazing love story. My father, known as “the black sheep of the family,” was a square dance caller who had it all, including the first Ford car in a small village in Saskatchewan. He married a stunning gal, who was also a horse woman. They had seven children and then one bleak and wintry night, she caught cold and died in child birth.

Why was red flag ignored? Charle Dalde was 24 years old when he was stabbed to death in 2008 in what was described by police as an unprovoked attack. Umut Ari was arrested and admitted to police that he stabbed Dalde. The Crown accepts that Ari suffers from a serious mental illness. He has been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. Some disturbing evidence surfaced in Ari’s trial last week in the form of a red flag that appears to have been ignored. Ari had been arrested and charged with assault involving a weapon in 2006. The arresting RCMP officer noted Ari’s mental state was “questionable.” He did so after Ari told the officer that someone standing outside the police cruiser was staring at him, that he thought Ari was gay. He apparently told the officer: “I have to kill that guy — what am I supposed to do?” Ari was sent for an overnight psychiatric assessment at Surrey pretrial centre. He ended up with a conditional discharge and 12 months probation. The initial psychiatric assessments at the pretrial centre are not done by a psychologist or psychiatrist, which may explain why no one — except the arresting officer — appears to have picked up on Ari’s disturbed mental condition. According to Marnie Mayhew of BC Corrections, inmates are initially screened by a “medical professional” and may be referred to a psychologist for further assessment if it is deemed to be warranted. Was this done in Ari’s case? Mayhew says she can’t disclose the medical records of inmates for privacy reasons. It seems that either Ari’s schizophrenia went undiagnosed, which is strange considering that an ordinary cop managed to conclude Ari’s mental state was “questionable.” Or, he was diagnosed but no support was put into place to protect him and society. Either way, the system has failed. The result is the death of one young man and blood on the hands of another who is too sick to even be held responsible. We owe both families some answers.

Tourists will be HST winners The Editor, Re: “Finance Minister grilled by Chinese community,” News, June 9. The HST supporters have been complaining about the socalled false information of the Fight HST group. Well, Geoff Plant, former Liberal MLA and Attorney General, has just joined the false-informers column with the statement given in the June 9 article above. He is arguing about wording, not intent, and in doing so implies the HST in B.C. is unremovable. Not true. The HST agreement includes the right for the province to withdraw from it, if it so wishes. Mr. Plant is in good company with Mr. Hansen, at the fore, and the Liberal party spokespeople trying to twist the HST into a good thing with all their might. I particularly refer to the wibble about retailers likely rebating the amount of the PST from their prices. There was TV news story showing a few Facebook videos supporting HST in which the business people talked about putting the value back into the business. Even the Crown Corporation Liquor Control Board has said they will be retaining the additional revenue. The more I hear things from the pro-HST group it seems the real beneficiaries of the reductions will be people from outside B.C. The Forestry Industry says they will be able to reduce the cost of product being sold to the U.S. It turns out the hotel room tax will be reduced by 80 per cent — a great bargain for visitors. I don’t remember that the hospitality industry was interested in raising the minimum wage when asked earlier in the year. Finally, I would like to say that Richmond East has 14.5 per cent of its voters signed up to the petition and between 13 to 14 per cent in the last few Vancouver ridings have done so as well. Mr Vander Zalm seems to have ‘entertained’ the people of B.C. very well. Laura Reston Richmond

Are you more than a consumer?

I am not a consumer. In the technical sense, in the sense used by economists and politicians, of course, that’s exactly what I am. I purchase both goods and services almost every day. Like more than 30 million other anonymous carbon blobs, I push the Canadian economy along. But, if you want to earn my undying hatred, please refer to me as a consumer. Because that’s what I’ve aspired to be all my life. Someone who mindlessly consumes. A member of the consumer society. Medieval societies didn’t have single blanket terms for all their people. Nobles and peasants lived on radically different planes of existence, and the order of things was thought to be ordained by God. But with the American and French revolutions, with the rise of a middle and then a working class, change came roaring in. People were placed on a more equal footing. The short-lived first French Republic saw “Citizen” become the address of choice. Some forms of address, like Mister or Miss, could be broadly applied across all social and economic classes. Before the end of the Cold War, it was pretty uncommon to hear people in the west referred to only as consumers. We were citizens, or “the [fill in nationality] people,” or just people. If an election was coming, we became voters. But something strange

Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH

happened between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the day the planes struck the Twin Towers. Maybe it was the loss of a (seemingly) implacable and powerful foe in the form of the Soviet bloc. Maybe it was the rise of the communications age. Maybe we just lost our minds slowly, and no one noticed. As I write this, Google shows 20,700,000 results for the phrase “Canadian consumer,” almost double the 11,200,000 that turn up for “Canadian citizen.” We constantly hear about the mood of this bizarre collective entity, “the Canadian consumer.” Its confidence is up or down, its mood is stable or fickle. Stockbrokers and public policy makers read these entrails and send millions of dollars flowing here and there. Little by little, the primary worth of a human being has been reduced to the economic. Whatever keeps the economy going – consuming – is good. Whatever slows it, whether unemployment or saving money, is now bad. Every day, a new study comes out about productivity or spending, or personal debt. Every event is reduced to its monetary

component. How many work hours were lost playing Pac Man on Google? How much money has the BP oil spill cost the stock market? How will the Euro crisis affect capital markets? Will the rise of the Chinese consumer buoy the economy? This monetization of the universe has bizarre consequences. We can find out how much lung cancer costs the economy. Someone has worked out the lost hours of work, the cost of medical care and insurance. But find me a chart that shows tears shed at hospital bedsides. I can tell you how much it costs to raise a child from infancy, but where is the pie chart showing parental joy, fear, and hope? Because these things, the things we actually live for, are not measured, they are losing relevance. Our society is driven by the economy, and the economy is driven by an endless round of consumption for its own sake. I don’t know about you, but my life is about more than consuming. There are a lot of things I care about, a few about which I am passionate. None of them are defined by buying crap. I am not a vending machine. I am not a robot. I am not a statistic, a number, an anonymous ant in the hill. I am not a consumer. Matthew Claxton is a reporter for the News’ sister paper, the Langley Advance.

trailing, the question is if the present government, Premier Campbell, and Finance Minister Colin Hansen refuse to act appropriately and listen to people’s voices, who should be recalled? Well, the other question in mind is: If the sentiment of the people of Richmond is not being heard at the provincial legislature; if they are constantly being lied to; if the ruling government bulldozes its fiscal policies upon its citizens; if the elected members of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia here in Richmond have no backbone to step up to the party’s leadership in such highly contentious and sensitive matters; what benefit is there in having them sit on their comfortable butts collecting salaries and lining up for a generous pension after a short stint at work that constitutes “telling us” rather than “listening to us” when most citizens have to work very hard all their lives for a chance to

retire modestly? Did I hear you say, “Recall all three?” As for the citizens of Richmond East, you have a couple more weeks to express your sentiments about the HST and this government. The anti-HST movement demonstrates that people power in B.C. is not dead; that citizens do care about what could be imposed that would seriously affect their lives and future. Unfortunately, in the realm of cause and effect, what could be said about this is, “We elected them.” Next time you exercise your vote, consider electing a government representative whose credentials go beyond “paying your first cup of coffee” or is popular, or even a long-term resident, or a good friend. Consider someone whose loyalty and dedication, first and foremost, are to serve the people – not the party. Ernie Mendoza Caring Citizens of Richmond Society

Densify? Don’t be so dense Open letter to John Yap, Re: “Trucks, SUVs main carbon culprits; Report tracks what causes the most greenhouse gases in every B.C. municipality,” the News, June 4, 2010. I cannot let this slip by me without saying something about your environmental article on trucks, SUV’s and densification. Would you please be so kind as to forward to me the terms of reference that the CEEI used to complete the report? It seems a little shallow when trucks and SUV’s have made huge strides in reduction of greenhouse gases in the past few years, at the same time, providing the tools for tradesmen, salesmen and movement

of goods throughout Metro Vancouver to ensure Richmond has a healthy and sustainable economy. Has this group forgotten two major polluters in their report? The Coast Mountain Bus Company with its associated bus fleet and the aircraft flying in and out of Vancouver International Airport? Secondly, when it comes to densification — in the United States, it is called a ghetto — live like rats, we behave like rats. Why in heaven’s sake do you want to expand this socially dysfunctional daydream to Richmond? The emergency services, paramedics, fire, police, social services are already overburdened

with the densification in Vancouver. Why do you want to spread this disease to Richmond? Please keep the social misfits on the north shore of the Fraser River, where they can be monitored and controlled by professionals who know how to reclaim these lost souls. The politicians north of the Fraser River enjoy and promote chaos that has been created with this pipe dream. Let them have their fun along with chicken runs, chicken coops for homeless chickens, community gardens on the front lawn of their city hall, etc. John Kennett. Richmond

The Editor, Re: “Yap’s assumptions way off the mark,” Letters, May 19 and “HST the right thing to do: Yap,” Letters, May 12. When I read Neil Smith’s “Choice Words” about MLA John Yap’s letter titled “HST is the right thing to do” (May 12), I could not help but chuckle. Good thing he did not say anything about “Java with Yap” – Mr. Yap’s version of attempting to communicate with his constituents. (He promises to pay your first cup of coffee!) When Mr. Smith (or someone else) charged that the Richmond Liberal MLAs are not representing the people of Richmond but are simply serving as puppets of the big party and the grand puppeteer in the Victoria legislature, I don’t ever recall a rebuttal from any of them. Now that the anti-HST petition has snowballed into an irresistible force with more than 15 per cent of the voting population’s signatures in all ridings, with only Richmond East

Keep your heart open and your ego in check Lorraine Wilson KEEP IT SIMPLE

I recently read a story about Jenny Reis, a night manger at the Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel who won an award from Tourism Richmond for her work ethic. She said, “I was taught to think outside the box and encouraged to work straight from the heart.” What an amazing attitude to have in the workplace and in life. Most of us spend at least 10 hours a day working and commuting to and from our jobs, so it’s important to create a sense of well being for ourselves and others while at work. When we choose to take responsibility for our emotions rather than hold others accountable for the way we feel, we not only begin to create peace in our own lives, but also in the lives of our colleagues. Personalities play a huge role in the workplace. Our personalities are created by our minds, or, as some say, our egos. Our mind/ego defines who we are and how we perceive others, and it is always out to win. We all have an ego, which in itself is not a problem. However, letting the ego determine our ultimate sense of self is a problem. When we live our lives in awareness and notice when the ego is present, it loses its sway. We can then choose to live from our heart instead and act out of kindness and compassion. More often than not, conflict arises in the work

place because our ego or our colleague’s ego is getting in the way. Someone wants to win the discussion or be in control — that’s the ego doing its thing. But regardless of who’s ego is driving the agenda, either one of you has the power to defuse this situation by being mindful and letting your ego take a backseat or by going into the listening mode.

When tensions are high, stop trying to be understood at that moment. Instead, seek to understand. This approach eliminates the need to defend oneself and allows the working relationship you have with your colleague to evolve into one with ease, understanding and respect. There is absolutely no point in having a dialogue with a colleague when the ego is involved. However,

when the ego has no one left to argue with, it will give up. Next time a heated situation arises in your work place, try this approach and see if this proves to be true for you. We are responsible for who we are in this world and for how our personalities unfold and impact others. If you have made an error or have been disrespectful to another at work, acknowledge it and

apologize. It really is that simple. Speaking the truth with kindness and compassion can shift an unhealthy working relationship in an instant. None of us can ever know what is occurring in the lives of the people we work with. Bringing kindness and compassion into the workplace has the potential to impact everyone within the organization.

Keep your heart open at work and commit at least one act of kindness each day for a colleague, client or customer and then see what happens.

Grassroots football programs let fans of all ages link up with the Lions With the 2010 football season now underway, BC Lions fans will soon be heading to Empire Field for the season home opener versus the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday, July 10. But Lions’ action isn’t limited to the field. The team’s grassroots football programs are focused on linking the team with people throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, allowing the Lions and fans of all ages to share their love of football. “I have been involved with our grassroots football programs for many seasons now,” says Lions slotback and fan favourite Geroy Simon. “Having an opportunity to share our love of the game with our fans throughout B.C. is a great way to give back to our community and gives us a chance to get to know our fans too!” PUNT, PASS & KICK Punt, Pass & Kick is a program designed to provide an opportunity for minor football players to test their skills in punting, passing and kicking while reinforcing their love of football. In 2009, the BC Lions, Tim Hortons, and BC Community Football hosted competitions in 15 districts in the Lower Mainland where players at the Flag (ages 6-7), Atom (ages 8-9), Peewee (ages 10-11) and Junior Bantam (12-13) levels had the opportunity to show off their skills and compete for an individual title. The 2010 Punt, Pass & Kick program will kick off in June, with the finals slated for the fall. For more information about the Punt, Pass & Kick program, please contact the BC Lions Football Club at 604.930.5466. PLAY WITH THE PROS Play with the Pros matches BC Lions players with boys and girls, providing them with an opportunity to participate in a noncontact skills clinic hosted by their favourite BC Lions players. The participants are divided into groups and rotate through various skill stations every 10-15 minutes. One player, one alumnus and one volunteer coach (local high school or community) are assigned per station, teaching skills such as

passing, receiving, pass routes and proper running techniques. The program will continue with similar visits in 2010 with the first 2010 Play with the Pros clinic taking place on June 27 at the club’s Surrey practice facility. For more information about the Lions’ Play with the Pros program, please contact the club at 604.930.5466. TIMBITS FOOTBALL CAMP The Timbits Football Camp is a free clinic for boys and girls between 6 and 12 years old. The program offers these children the chance to learn the basic skills of football and to play with their BC Lions heroes. Last year, more than 400 boys and girls took part in the camp. The 2010 Timbits Football Camp will take place on Aug. 29. For more information about the Lions’ Timbits Football Camp, please contact the club at 604.930.5466.

FOOTBALL 101 Football 101 is a course designed exclusively for women who want to learn more about the CFL game. For just $50 (plus tax), participants receive a BC Lions T-shirt, a Football 101 manual and a game ticket to a BC Lions home game, which includes viewing the pre-game warm-up and a “chalk talk” with former BC Lions great Jamie Taras. In 2009, the BC Lions welcomed close to 150 women of all ages during two sessions of Football 101. In 2010, the BC Lions will once again host two sessions of this popular “just-for ladies” event – on Wednesday, Aug. 4 and Wednesday, Oct. 13. To register, please contact the club at 604.930.5466.

FOOTBALL 202 Football 202 is an on-field, interactive course just for women. It gives them an opportunity to run through drills and exercises similar to the ones BC Lions players engage in throughout the season. In 2009, more than 60 women hit the field as part of the program. Football 202 gives women the opportunity to learn the basics of passing, receiving, kicking, and much more from their very own BC Lions. In 2010, Football 202 will take place on Sunday, Aug. 22. To register, contact the club at 604.930.5466.

Rollerderby: Where zombies and pussycats roam Soft spoken nurse transforms into hard-hitting, blood spattered contender

Each bout or game consists of two, 30minute rounds. “The fans love the hits and our derby wear,” she said. “At our home opener at Kerrisdale Arena, we had a sold out crowd of 2,000, and our last bout at Minoru, there were more than 1,800 fans out to urge us on.” The roller girls — who range in age from early twenties to late forties — are attracting a lot of attention and the stands are often filled with everyone from young families with children to seniors. “Even though we all dress up, little kids never seem scared,” she said. Every player chooses her alter ego and some names are, shall we say, rather interesting and a tad risqué. For Robinson, choosing Amazombie just seemed fitting somehow. “I’m over six feet tall and I love zombie movies,” she said with a laugh. Fellow Faster Pussycats team player, Richmond’s Meredith Essex chose Mary Queen of Shotz as her alter ego because she

of popularity over the past half-century, most recently in the seventies, but the current revival has helped the sport gain momentum and loyal fans, both echoed. “I see a real keen interest shown for the sport and fans are quick to come over after a bout and talk to us, ask us questions about the sport and really are enthused about it,” said Essex. “There’s a real commitment made by all the girls to promote the sport and volunteer time in the community.” There are three teams of 20 players in the Terminal City Rollergirls league. The teams compete against teams from across the United States, Canada and around the world. “Anyone who has never been to one of our games should really come out and see why its exciting and a great night of entertainment,” said Essex.

said: “I’m of Scottish descent, I love history and I love a play on words.” Essex, 26, is also a registered nurse and was hooked on the sport much for the same reasons as her teammate Robinson. “Last year I went to watch a championship game and it just seemed like a really amazing sport,” said the Richmond Hospital critical care nurse. “I had played ice hockey and the idea of playing a full-contact sport really appealed to me.” She went on to say that it’s also a sport that pushes you beyond your limits. “It’s physically challenging to race around at high speed on roller skates,” she said. “I do a lot of jamming (skating through opponents), which is also physically challenging.” Both players agree that roller derby is a feat of endurance, strength and agility. But both stress you don’t have to be a star athlete to take part. “People of any age, or any size, can play,” Robinson enthused. “You don’t have to be the most athletic person and work out. “There are girls that are 250 pounds and girls that are 98 pounds.” Roller derby has had scattered moments

When Sophie Robinson slips into her zombie garb, laces up her roller skates and paints blood splatter on her face, she becomes a female warrior ready for battle. However, let’s backtrack first. Imagine the violence and hard hits of a hockey game, but replace the ice with a roller rink. Swap baggy hockey jerseys for fishnet stockings, short shorts and outlandish outfits. Then, ditch ordinary names for pseudonyms such as Autumn von Rotten, Barra Couga, or Miss Whips, and you have roller derby. Welcome to Robinson’s world. It’s hard to imagine this soft spoken, 26-year-old registered nurse transform into Amazombie, a roller derby “chick” who prowls for “fresh meat” every time she gets onto the track as a member of the Faster Pussycats. Yet, this Richmond High graduate of 2001 will be the first to tell you she loves the fast-paced, adrenaline rush of playing roller derby. “I heard about the Rollergirls three years ago and I went to watch them play at Minoru Arena,” said Robinson. “I thought it looked like fun and a great workout, so I applied to get on a team. “I’m considered fresh meat because I’m a rookie this year … 30 of us were accepted. From those, 18 were drafted, and after a tough training period less than 10 are on teams.” The Richmond resident said more and more people are discovering roller derby, and come, not only for its entertainment factor, but also to watch some “great athleticism.” “All the women on all three teams are really good athletes,” said Robinson, who played basketball, football, volleyball and soccer during high school and college. “Most of them either have a skating or hockey background.” The entertainment comes before each game when some of the players, such as Suzy Shameless, heads onto the track rubbing her belly and performing silly stunts for the audience. “Although there’s always a little silliness during the intro, we are all serious players out to win,” Robinson said. She added that the Faster Pussycats train three times a week and all the players are

The city play park partly designed by kids has won yet another award. Before the Garden City Community Play Environment was built, children were allowed to be involved in the design so they could add elements most adults wouldn’t think of — such as banks of sand, rock and water channels and old growth stumps and logs. The BC Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) recently presented the City of Richmond with a 2010 BCRPA Provincial Award for this innovative children’s play area. The awards recognize outstanding programs and innovative facilities throughout the province. “The vision for this park was to create a place where children could use all five of their senses and enjoy nature. While the park has won numerous awards, the biggest reward is seeing so many children climbing, laughing and playing,” Mayor Malcolm Brodie said. The project has already been recognized with a 2009 Award of Excellence from the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects, a National Merit Award in the category of Design, and a Design Exchange Best of Category award in Landscape Architecture by Canadian Business.

Community CYCLING

City has the power to turn the spokes of progress “The days of the free ride for automobiles are coming to an end,” so said former TransLink CEO Tom Prendergast last July. The Calgary Herald ran a column during our Bike to Work Week this year, extolling the virtues of Vancouver’s bicycle infrastructure and pointing out the priority of funding it receives over that of Calgary’s more motorist friendly funding.

Land is a finite resource, and the management of it becomes ever more important the more populated an area becomes. The historical subsidies motorists have enjoyed are slowly coming to an end to better manage a more efficient transportation system. That means, in part, more investment in cycling infrastructure. Richmond has been adding to its cycling amenities, but isn’t finished yet. The

densification of the central core means more pedestrian and cycling facilities will have to be built or the area will become more gridlocked than it already is. Vancouver recently added

to its cycling network by taking space away from motorists and segregating these new lanes. It’s been more successful than anticipated, while dramatically decreasing car trips in the downtown core. There was significant opposition when the City of Vancouver proposed taking a lane away from motorists on the Burrard Street Bridge for use by cyclists. After all, a similar trial a few years ago

resulted in traffic chaos. It only seemed logical that the same thing would happen again. The difference this time was the city implemented a more efficient plan, and commuters were prepared. After much anticipation the trial began and traffic adjusted nicely while cycling increased dramatically. Things worked so well, in fact, that city council voted to do the same thing on the Georgia Viaduct.

The complaints for this new plan were minimal, for good reason. The public had first hand experience with a successful model. Vancouver city council has now expanded on this safe access for cyclists to and from the Downtown core, by building a connecting and segregated corridor on Dunsmuir Street that opens on Tuesday, June 15 for Bike Month. I expect this corridor to be successful, as well. The core of Richmond has some way to go before it can enjoy the same level of cycling success Vancouver has, but the good news is that it’s within reach. While bike lanes encircle our downtown, the centre of the city needs more dedicated bike lanes. Currently, there are actually three options for travel north or south, but none for travel east and west. If the city is truly interested in increasing the level of cycling in Richmond to make it comparable to that of Vancouver, it needs to make the same proportional investment in cycling infrastructure that Vancouver has. Mayor Brodie recently challenged Richmondites to ride bicycles more often. OK, sure. I think that’s a great challenge. But in return, I’d challenge the mayor and council to invest more capital in better cycling facilities and infrastructure, to make it easier for people who travel through our downtown core, to do so.

Associations turn to hired help to run programs Seafair and Richmond enter new era for player development to keep up with ever evolving minor hockey BY MARK BOOTH

Richmond Minor and Seafair hooked up in a memorable championship game at the 2008 Richmond International Midget Tournament. Now the rival associations have added paid positions for player and coaching development as they get ready for the 2010-11 season. gram and wanted to be part of it. They’re not only good people on the ice but off of it as well. “In the end, I think it’s the people of Richmond who will benefit the most from what both associations are doing. Al and Glenn got a great offer and we are happy for them. Progression and new ideas can be a good thing.” Seafair has moved forward by naming longtime local hockey coach Russ Weber as the man in charge of the association’s top Bantam rep team next season — working with a very talented group of 1996 kids that have

gone through the minor hockey ranks under Wheeler’s direction. Weber has coached all levels of hockey through to junior and will also serve as head coach of the B.C. U16 team that will be competing at the 2011 Canada Winter Games. Seafair also announced Hamaguchi has been hired as its first-ever paid executive director. The part-time position includes overseeing all of the association’s on and off ice operations as well as an estimated annual operating budget of $500,000. He is no stranger to the organization,

having volunteered for years as a coach and on the executive, including a three-year stint as president. His sons are long removed from minor hockey and were key members of the Richmond Sockeyes last season. “With the high expectations from parents to provide a quality program, it became more evident that we needed a way to manage our program in the most efficient and effective way possible,” said Hamaguchi. “ To rely on volunteers to do this, was becoming more of a challenge.” His number one priority will

be continuing the momentum Seafair has gained in recent years. Registration continues to increase and could surpass 600 for the coming season. Seafair was also named Association of the Year at the recent Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association’s AGM. Hamaguchi also went home with executive-of-the-year honours. He says he will also be focusing on community building and taking more advantage of the support the organization has received over the years.

Long gone are the days when youth sports organizations are run by nothing but volunteers at the administrative and player development levels. That is none more apparent than what two of Richmond’s minor hockey associations have been up to of late. When Richmond Minor wanted to take a significant step with its on ice instruction, it looked no further than hiring longtime successful Seafair Minor coaches Al Wozney and Glenn Wheeler as Directors of Hockey Development. The fulltime salary positions replace what previously was contracted out to private instructors and hockey schools, It follows a trend of what many of Metro Vancouver’s minor hockey associations are doing. The departure of two of its top coaches, initially put Seafair Minor in damage control as parents and players wondered what was about to happen to the organization that had enjoyed tremendous success and growth in recent years. However, Seafair responded by creating its own professional staff — hiring Derek Popke and Yogi Svejkovsky as Director of Player Development and Director of Hockey Operations respectively. Popke has a reputation as one of the top power skating instructors in the country and was already doing contractual work with Seafair. Svejkovsky, a former NHLer, is an associate coach with the Vancouver Giants and had been working with South Delta Minor Hockey. “The neat thing is both came to us,” explained Seafair executive director Ken Hamaguchi. “Derek liked working with us and was interested in expanding his role and Yogi liked our pro-

Richmond rolls off four straight wins to capture Second Annual Renegade Cup

northshorenews.com richmond-news.com 06137902

Richmond Youth Soccer Association’s Second Annual Renegade Cup proved to be a great success with the host team taking top honours. The tournament is the brainchild of former local player Was Barrett who now attends the University of Victoria. He approached RYSA Intermediate head coach Brad Kirkland, and with the help of Total Soccer Systems coach Rob Dalitto and RYSA chief executive Cheryl Dunham, they put the tournament together with the idea of making it an annual event. This year’s Richmond team was coached by Kirkland and assistant Ted Lorenz. It was made up of players from the newly formed U16 Select side (players born in 1995 and 1996), along with more talent from the association’s

Richmond celebrates its victory at the recent Renegade Cup tournament. U15 premier team. The locals produced wins over Whalley Surrey (4-0), Cordova Bay 96 (6-0) and Cordova Bay 95 (2-0) to advance to the final. The impressive run was completed with a 3-0 win over TSS. It was an incredible

achievement considering this group of players had never actually played together as a team and only had one practice session before the tournament. The coaches were delighted with the commitment, work ethic and team

spirit the players showed throughout the the weekend. Some boys were asked to play unfamiliar positions but each and every one of them rose to the occasion and turned in very impressive performances to make Richmond proud!

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
