CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Agony and ecstasy ... Alice Wong celebrates her re-election with a high-five, main picture. Above, the mood is sombre in Joe Peschisolido’s campaign office as the reality of a shattering defeat sets in. Right, Tory Kerry-Lynne Findlay celebrates her Delta-Richmond East win with former MP John Cummins.

Avalanche: Wong buries rivals, Grits suffer acampbell@richmond-news.com

It wasn’t so much an election landslide as it was an avalanche. Tory incumbent Alice Wong was the runaway winner in Richmond with a massive 58.35 per cent of the vote as support for the Liberal’s Joe Peschisolido collapsed. Indeed, Peschisolido only clung on grimly by 0.4 per cent of the vote for second, ahead of a surge from the NDP’s Dale Jackaman. In a night that the voter turnout fell once more to a new historical low — just 50.7 per cent (down from 52 per cent in 2008) — the Green’s Michael Wolfe trailed in last with just 4.7 per cent of the vote. The Conservative’s candidate in DeltaRichmond East, Kerry-Lynne Findlay, enjoyed a similarly convincing win (54 per cent) over the NDP’s Nic Slater (23.2), with the Liberal’s Alan Beesley disappointing in third with 17 per cent. But in Richmond, it was a night for Wong and her supporters to savour. “The people of Richmond have spoken, and I like what they said, don’t you,” said a $

the current proposal has been withdrawn and until another one is presented, there is little to comment on. The biggest challenge Wong said she faces in the weeks and months ahead is simply dealing with the number of specific issues among her constituents. Richmond’s high new immigrant population means for a busy constituency office. “I would like to see more resources for that,” said Wong. Wong thanked the other Richmond candidates, Jackaman, Peschisolido and Wolf, “for putting their beliefs into action by running for office.” Just after her speech, Liberal candidate Joe Peschisolido entered the campaign office to offer his congratulations.

Findlay sweeps riding BY SANDOR GYARMATI Postmedia News

It’s an exciting time for the riding and the nation, said Conservative Kerry-Lynne Findlay, who handily won DeltaRichmond East in Monday’s federal election. Winning political office for the first time, Findlay beat out five others to secure the seat held for almost 18 years by fellow Tory John Cummins. “I’m just delighted to be part of that team. We’re going to have the time now to have the mandate to do good things for Canada,” said an elated Findlay. Surrounded by a crowd of supporters and friends at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn as the results poured in, Findlay said she’s excited to be part of a majority government. “My results here kind of mirrored the national, which is fantastic. I just felt it building over the last couple of weeks, the momentum of the campaign and the support. “I just think what it means for this riding and this country, it gives us a solid mandate we were looking for.” Findlay garnered 54.2 per cent per cent of the vote, easily outdistancing the NDP’s Nic Slater (23.3), Liberal Alan Beesley (16.9), the Green’s Duane Laird (4.8), independent John Shavluk (0.5) and Libertarian Jeff Monds (0.3). The Conservatives won a majority with 167 seats across the nation, while the New Democrats made history by becoming the official Opposition with a record 102 seats, a victory that came largely at the expense of the Liberals, which won only 34, and Bloc Quebecois, which won just four. The Greens also made history by capturing their first seat. In this riding, the Conservatives maintained their strong position, while the NDP’s

share increased from the last election. Having run as Canadian Alliance candidate in VancouverQuadra in 2001, Findlay said what she heard most from residents here is the Conservative government was on the right track economically. “They don’t want to mess with that and they see the NDP as the equivalent to raising taxes. They believe we can continue this economic growth with a lower tax objective. “The second thing is people were tired of elections, it’s the fourth in seven years. I met several people who said, ‘I am voting Conservative, my whole family is voting Conservative, because enough is enough.’” Delta-Richmond East had been considered a relatively safe riding for the Conservatives, but

it remained to be seen whether Findlay could match the success of Cummins. In the last election in 2008, which resulted in another Conservative minority government, the incumbent Cummins dominated as usual with almost 56 per cent of the vote. It was obvious Findlay would have big shoes to fill, due in part to the enormous personal popularity of Cummins. In an interview just after he was appointed as the Liberal candidate for Delta-Richmond East, Alan Beesley said he believed the riding was, in fact, winnable because Cummins had stepped aside. However, that turned out not to be the case. On hand to show his support at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn gathering was the outgoing MP, who said he was particularly delighted to see the Bloc Quebecois crumble. “They were small-minded individuals who were bad for the business of Canada,” Cummins said. Findlay, who’s planning to move to the riding, is a Vancouver lawyer who, until now, was perhaps best known for spearheading an extended court battle with the federal government and the Musqueam Indian Band over lease payments charged to non-native residents of Musqueam Park. Currently the legal counsel for the B.C. Fisheries Survival Coalition before the Cohen inquiry into declining salmon stocks, the 55-year-old has held many committee and executive portfolios in her legal career. In 2001, she was received a YWCA Woman of Distinction Award and in 2006 was appointed to the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal for a five-year term. Married to Brent Chapman, an actor and voice talent, Findlay has four kids ages 15 to 29.

NDP makes big gains BY SANDOR GYARMATI, DAVE WILLIS Postmedia News

Nic Slater made big gains for the New Democrats as he finished second in Delta-Richmond East in Monday’s federal election. At a gathering of supporters at the Tsatsu Shores condo complex in Tsawwassen on Monday night, Slater said he had a “low resource campaign” that picked up steam as it moved toward election day. “We ended up running a solid, NDP’s Nic Slater low resource campaign instead of a medium or high resource campaign. And a lot of people came out of the woodwork to help. The surge (nationally) helped, but the people who voted here were part of their own surge.” Slater received 11,189 votes, which was good for 23.3 per cent of the riding’s total ballots cast. That’s up significantly from the 14 per cent the party had garnered in the last three elections. Liberal Alan Beesley ended up with 8,112 votes, translating to 16.9 per cent of the votes cast. He congratulated Findlay for her win but also said he was proud of his campaign. Nationally, Liberals lost seats and finished third behind the NDP. Local Green candidate Duane Laird came in fourth with 2,324 votes, or 4.8 per cent overall. “I certainly would have liked to have a different final result but I think I’m pretty realistic about the way it went,” he said, noting DeltaRichmond East has traditionally been a Conservative riding.

Wolfe not crying over result BY EVE EDMONDS

eedmonds@richmond-news.com

The vote count went down for Richmond’s Green Party candidate, but that failed to dampen his spirits. Michael Wolfe was “elated and ecstatic” that the Green Party of Canada will send its first-ever MP to Ottawa, thanks to Elizabeth May winning the Saanich-Gulf Island riding. That was reason enough to celebrate, said Wolfe from the campaign office of fellow Green candidate Adriane Carr. “I’ve been in six elections and this is the highlight because of having the first Green elected. This is trail blazing; we’re here for the long haul.” Still, Wolfe is smarting a bit, given his fourth place finish in Richmond. Wolfe dropped from 6.4 per cent of the votes in Richmond in 2008 to 4.7 per cent. “I’m a popular candidate and was getting

The Green Party’s Michael Wolfe watches election results trickle in on TV from his home. endorsements, like from the Georgia Straight, and to remain fourth is a little tough. “It was my goal to move the vote ahead in Richmond, but the surge in the NDP and Conservatives made it hard.” The fact it was a snap election and there were fewer opportunities to get his message out worked against him, said the 29year-old school teacher. Enthusiasm for NDP leader Jack Layton and stra-

tegic voting also conspired to bring his vote count down, he said. But Wolfe’s bitterness is far outweighted by the sweetness of having May elected. And it was, in fact, the Green Party strategy to focus resources on the most electable candidate at the expense of other campaigns. “It was a telling line in her acceptance speech; she said she had 2,000 volunteers, some of us are lucky to get 2,000 votes.”

Liberal ‘grits’ his teeth in defeat NDP’s Jackaman vows to dog Wong BY ALAN CAMPBELL

BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

acampbell@richmond-news.com

At 8:15 p.m., the atmosphere in Joe Peschisolido’s campaign office on Ackroyd Road resembled that of a morgue, rather than a postelection party. As Liberal hopeful Peschisolido composed himself in the back office, his supporters sat silent and ashen-faced around the main room, watching Prime Minister Stephen Harper deliver his victory speech on TV. After coming to terms with the magnitude of his defeat — clinging onto second spot from the NDP with just 18.7 per cent of the vote, down 12.1 per cent from his predecessor Raymond Chan in 2008 — Peschisolido strode from the back room at 8:25 p.m. to concede defeat and then rally his weary campaign troops. Adding insult to injury for the local Liberal party members was the fact that Peschisolido was waving the white flag a full 15 minutes earlier than his predecessor, Chan, did three years ago. “Pick yourselves up, guys. Don’t be too down, we’ll come back to fight again,” he told them. “I’m very proud of our

Joe Peschisolido explains his defeat to the media. campaign and I wouldn’t have done anything different.” On the surface, Peschisolido appeared unperturbed by the manner in which Tory rival Alice Wong dismissed his challenge. But behind the smile, there was no hiding his bitter disappointed at, not just losing to Wong, but conceding so much ground to the Tories in what has been a closefought riding in recent times. “The people have spoken, that much is clear and I’m going to go and congratulate Alice now,” he told the News. “Of course, I would have preferred to have been more successful. But I still would not have changed the way we campaigned.”

Peschisolido hinted that he sensed defeat was on the cards before the election. “The national trends are what they are and it was not looking favourable,” he said of the early polls. “The response from the people in Richmond today was still good, but the (phone) calling and polling seemed to change (in the last couple of days).” And he admitted that the national surge in the favour of the NDP undoubtedly played a part in the loss.

It was a bitter-sweet night for the NDP’s Dale Jackaman in Richmond. He might have increased his party’s vote in the Richmond riding by almost five per cent and ran the Liberals close for second, but Jackaman was more concerned about the fact the Conservatives now have a majority government — something he feels is “dangerous” and he told runaway Tory incumbent Alice Wong while congratulating her. “I went to speak to Alice and say ‘well done,’” Jackaman said. “But I then gave her my apologies in advance as I told her I think her government is going to be the most divisive in the country’s history and my community is going to be very angry about it. “She said she would listen to the people, but I don’t think her government will listen. But the battle is on and I will continue to attack the Tories and I won’t stop.” Referring to Harper’s rule as being the most “secretive” since the Second World War, he said he’s surprised how easy Wong won the day. “The Conservatives are plain loathsome, but for whatever reason, the people have ignored that fact,” he said from the NDP post-election party in Vancouver on Monday night. “I think the voters need a collective kick in the teeth and I think, over time, they’ll

realize they’ve made a big mistake tonight.” Of his rise in the voting percentage, Jackaman said it felt a lot nicer to be closer to the pack than normal, although he added he wasn’t that surprised at running the Liberal’s Peschisolido so close for second place. “It was expected. There was very much a positive feel from our calls from the polling bank and I think (the surge) was more to do with what was happening nationally for the NDP than anything here in Richmond,” he said. Jackaman said his party’s rise in popularity in Richmond came despite the lack of attention from the local media.

Teens facing racist graffiti charges

Boys 15, 16 alleged to have sprayed Nazi signs

Police are recommending that charges be laid against two Richmond teenagers believed to be responsible for racist graffiti incidents earlier this year. On March 5, Richmond RCMP received three reports that racist graffiti was found in different locations throughout the city. The graffiti was located on a pump station at the west end of Blundell Road, on a travel trailer in the 8600 block of Seafair Drive and on Gilmore elementary school. In all three instances the graffiti consisted of racial slurs, swastikas and white supremacy markings.

The BC Hate Crimes Section was contacted and assisted with the investigation. Charges of mischief and wilfully promoting hatred are being recommended for the two male youths, aged 15 and 16. A court date has not been set, as charges have not yet been approved. The identities of the accused are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act and, as such, their names cannot be released. The anti-Semitic slurs included a Nazi swastika, with the words “white power” and a derogatory phrase related to Chinese people.

Diverting the pipe is not enough: Steves BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

An airline consortium’s decision to consider diverting their fuel pipe up Highway 99 will only deal with five per cent of the issues, said Coun. Harold Steves. VAFFC (Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation) were last week granted permission to suspend the provincial review into their plan, which included building a fuel offloading facility on the south arm of the Fraser River and then running a 15-kilometre pipe through agricultural and residential Richmond to YVR. The consortium said it wants time to examine the possibility of directing the pipe up Highway 99 and then west to the airport — an alternative routing that VAFFC said was suggested to them by the City of Richmond. But Steves, one of many fierce opponents to the plan on city council, said such a

reroute will only deal with a small fraction of the environmental issues. “I’m not impressed,” said Steves. “The Fraser River estuary is still at risk and I see no reason to support that. “There’s still the risk of a spill in the estuary, no matter which direction the pipe goes.” He also took issue with the consortium indicating that diverting the pipe up the 99 was the “preferred” option of the city. “The city said that if we had to put up with a new pipe, we’d rather it went up the 99. It certainly wasn’t our preferred option,” he said. “Our preferred option is upgrading the current pipeline (from Burnaby).” Steves said, however, that the delaying of the current B.C. review gives opponents time to mount a campaign to push for a “proper” federal review into tankers coming up the Fraser River. In a letter to the News this week, Mayor Malcolm

Brodie echoed Steves’ concerns, saying “Richmond City Council remains unanimously opposed to any proposal to build a new jet-fuel pipeline which would require an off-loading facility for fuel tankers or barges along the environmentally-sensitive South Arm of the Fraser River …” You can read Brodie’s full letter in the Choice words

section on Page 10. Adrian Pollard, project director for VAFFC, said the consortium is listening to what the city has to say. “We are planning to meet next month with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to explore this (Highway 99) option,” Pollard said. “It is still very early days though.”

THEATRE

Gateway director prepares for final curtain call BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

When the curtain comes down next April, Simon Johnston hopes his legacy will be of kick-starting the careers of the new generation of talented young artists who have contributed to the success of the Gateway Theatre — whether it’s actors, directors, playwrights or set designers. “I’m extremely proud that we have been the launching pad for many talented young people, many of whom have great careers,” said Johnston. After nearly a dozen years at the helm of the Gateway Theatre, Johnston, its artistic and executive director, will resign to pursue “new possibilities.” “To everything there is a season,” he quipped. “It’s been a great run and I think it’s probably a great time to

years. “We have a presence in many provinces and across B.C. because we have coproduced a number of terrific shows.” Johnston credits his team for much of the company’s success. “It’s through team work and consensus, which is a positive and unique position I believe, that we have become a leading cultural

institution,” he said. Sherry Elasoff, manager of marketing and publicity, was surprised to hear of Johnston’s decision last Friday afternoon. “Of course, we are sad to see him go because he has done so much for the company and for the arts in Richmond,” said Elasoff. “He has been a delight to work with.”

Under his tenure, Elasoff added, the Gateway has witnessed the birth of the Studio Series of plays on Gateway’s second stage in Studio B; the SceneFirst play development program; premieres of 17 new Canadian plays; and several seasons of Sea of Stories. When asked what he plans on doing when he leaves, Johnston said he has a

few projects he’s looking at, but he isn’t at liberty to discuss what they are yet. “My wife Sheila and I are going to take a holiday first and then I want to work on a couple of opportunities before I get too old,” said Johnston. Meanwhile, the Gateway board of directors will form a search committee to find a suitable replacement.

allow for some fresh, new outlook to breathe new life into the Gateway Theatre.” Johnston also feels this is the opportune time to resign while the theatre is manned by “a new, energized board, an excellent professional staff and hundreds of fabulous volunteers. “I am immensely proud of how the Gateway Theatre now has a national presence,” said Johnston, who has lived in Richmond for a dozen

ell, wasn’t that a night! For an election that many said would be a yawner, the grand finale was a nail biter — a bit like watching the Canucks in overtime. Richmond itself wasn’t quite as exciting to watch, given that the two Tory candidates, Richmond’s Alice Wong and Delta-Richmond East’s Kerry-Lynne Findlay won handily, as was predicted. Nevertheless, we did follow the national trend of dismissing the Liberals and giving a nod to the NDP. In Delta-Richmond East, Nic Slater came in second with 23.3 per cent of the votes. In Richmond, the NDP’s Dale Jackaman didn’t place second, but it was close and even close is news for the NDP in this riding. To all the candidates, we want to repeat the gracious words of incumbent MP Alice Wong when, in her victory speech, she congratulated all the candidates “for putting their beliefs into action by running for office.” It is no mean feat to stage a campaign and our hats go off to all who participated. So now what? We have two significant changes — a Tory majority and an NDP opposition. First, congratulations to the Tories. It was a decisive victory. Let’s just remember that cooperation and inclusion doesn’t mean weak leadership; Majority doesn’t mean dictatorship. To the issue of an NDP opposition — well, maybe a twoparty system, in which each represents one side of the political spectrum, is a healthy change. The issue of vote splitting has always been a frustration in our current system. It leads to strategic voting (which can backfire) and a government that doesn’t truly reflect the votes of the people. Of course, the Liberals may well regroup and come back stronger than ever. In the meantime, we have two clear alternatives and a whole new dynamic to watch with the Conservatives and the NDP. Let the games begin.

CHOICE WORDS

We still don’t want your pipe The Editor, Re: “Review into fuel project halted,” News, April 29. I want to emphasize that Richmond City Council remains unanimously opposed to any proposal to build a new jet fuel pipeline which would require an off-loading facility for fuel tankers or barges along the environmentally-sensitive south arm of the Fraser River and/or a pipeline route that would pass through the middle of our community. The only preferred route for any jet fuel pipeline involves the continued use of the existing pipeline from Burnaby with upgrading as necessary. If new facilities are proven to be required to replace the existing facilities, an off-loading terminal location for barges on the north arm of the Fraser River, close to the airport, would be better. The city welcomes the consortium’s decision to seek a 120day suspension in the Environmental Assessment Review process to enable them to examine the option of routing a pipeline along Richmond’s Highway 99 corridor. The continued opposition from many sources appears finally to be heard by the consortium. While council does not want any new pipeline, the Highway 99 routing alternative was a partial response to the consortium’s previous insistence on using the Shell Road corridor. Highway 99 would be preferred over the Shell Road corridor as it could largely avoid residential, farm and environmental areas. Council remains adamantly opposed to the consortium’s plans to use the south arm as a transit point for shipments. We are deeply concerned about the resulting environmental and public safety threats. We strongly urge the consortium to revisit its approach. Malcolm D. Brodie City of Richmond Mayor

Dix may be copying mentor’s mistakes New NDP leader Adrian Dix is trying to establish his own style of leadership, and to demonstrate the once badly fractured NDP caucus is over its internal strife. But his restructuring of his caucus assignments has raised questions about whether that internal tension is truly gone. I’ve picked up some serious grumbling by some key New Democrats unhappy that Dix essentially shut leadership rival Mike Farnworth (and Farnworth’s supporters) from pivotal caucus positions. Instead, Dix installed MLAs who supported either his leadership or that of John Horgan, who is perhaps closer to Dix on a personal level than other MLAs. Of course, Dix has every right to appoint whoever he wants to various posts (although some positions, such as caucus chair, are elected by the caucus). But one can’t help contrasting his treatment of Farnworth with Premier Christy Clark’s handling of her chief leadership rival, Kevin Falcon. Clark appointed Falcon finance minister and deputy premier. Dix, on the other hand, removed Farnworth from the pivotal position of Opposition house leader and also moved him out of the public safety critic position. Farnworth garnered widespread praise for his performance in both roles. As critic, he actually convinced the government to bring in legislation that he was specifically call-

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

ing for (such as new laws dealing with body armour and armoured cars) to fight organized gangs. And Farnworth’s removal as house leader carries with it a hefty personal financial cost as well. He now loses the $20,000 stipend that comes with the job. Dix, of course, denies there’s any payback going on here. He told me he considers Farnworth’s appointment as health critic his key appointment and insists Farnworth is a great friend. But there’s a tiresome routine that comes with being health critic. Dix was the former health critic, of course, and he started out well in that post. But over time, his criticisms became relentlessly similar and all echoed the refrain that all problems in the system could be fixed by simply putting more and more money into it. Farnworth would be wise to steer clear of that money trap, and focus on such issues as a looming shortage of doctors, nurses and technologists (if you think MRI wait times are too long now, just wait a few years when there are fewer and fewer people properly trained to run such machines). The grumbling over the

treatment of Farnworth and his supporters will likely fade away rather quickly. But Dix should remember he wasn’t the choice of an overwhelming majority of party members. His victory margin — 52 to 48 per cent — was exactly the same as the premier’s margin. He had fewer caucus endorsements than either Farnworth or Horgan. And given that his campaign signed up more than 5,000 members of the South Asian community in Surrey and its environs (representing half of his final ballot tally) Dix can hardly argue he has a strong, broad base of support throughout the province or the party. One of Dix’s political mentors, of course, is former premier Glen Clark, for whom he worked, first as ministerial assistant and then as chief of staff in the premier’s office. I’ve always thought one of Clark’s big mistakes as premier was putting only those people who shared his class warrior views in key positions in government, either in the caucus or among staffers. As a result, whenever he made a mistake, the only people he would turn to were those who reinforced his views, rather than challenging them or changing them. It will be interesting to see if Dix makes the same mistake in the months ahead. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

The 2011 award recipients were: Leonard Kay for the Arts Education Award, which recognizes an individual or organization whose achievements and contributions to arts education have been significant and far-reaching. Over his 33-year career as a music teacher in Richmond, Kay has been an inspiration to countless students.

ing involvement with the school’s music program and the Richmond Youth Concert Band. Jeanette Jarville for the Artistic Innovation Award, which recognizes an individual artist or organization producing visionary, creative work, exhibiting innovation within in their arts discipline or bringing a new cultural experience to the city of Richmond. Coast Capital Savings received the Business and Arts Award. This award recognizes a business that has made a significant contribution to the arts in Richmond by supporting a Richmondbased artist or arts organization through sponsorship, philanthropic and/or volunteer service. Coast Capital Savings sponsors community events that help build strong families and healthy communities. Nadeane Trowse received the Volunteerism Award, which recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to the arts in Richmond by supporting a Richmond-based artist or arts

organization through volunteer service. Natalie Lo was recognized for the Youth Award, honouring Richmond’s young artists, musicians and cultural contributors. The Cultural Leadership Award, which recognizes an arts professional or organization as a leader in their arts discipline, as well as their organization stewardship and their contribution to Richmond’s cultural development, was awarded to Simon Johnston. Johnston is Gateway Theatre’s artistic and executive director. Over the past 12 years he has served on the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Richmond and is a founding member of the Richmond Arts Coalition. He started Gateway’s innovative Studio series and play development programs for emerging artists in professional theatre.

News bags provincial industry award Paper’s Daily Report during Olympics wins over judges

The Richmond News team was honoured Saturday night at the River Rock Casino Resort for the special publication it produced during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. A Ma Murray Award, sponsored by the Community Newspaper Association, B.C. and the Yukon, was awarded to the News in the category of Special Publication over 25,00 circulation. Throughout the 16 days of the Olympic Games, the News produced the Daily Report which covered events in Richmond at the Olympic Oval as well as the entertainment site, the Ozone.

It also cover major Olympic news and showcased the city for visitors. The judges said: “This contains a nice balance of Olympic coverage and articles of local interest for tourists. While the publications were designed to come out daily, the fact this was such a special event means they could also be kept and referred to.” “So many people came together to make this happen,” said editor Eve Edmonds, who accepted the award on behalf of the team. “There was a sense of wanting to be a part of this huge event and contribute to it in the way we know best, which is to publish a community paper.”

Stories of heroism and of going above and beyond the call of duty were plentiful last Wednesday night during the ninth Annual Richmond Chamber of Commerce 911 Awards. More than 275 attendees came dressed in their finest to honour and celebrate the courageous men and women of the city’s emergency personnel, who work hard every day to make sure the city is safe. Glasses were raised in salute to members of the RCMP, Richmond FireRescue, Canadian Coast Guard and B.C. Ambulance/Paramedics in the River Rock Casino Resort Theatre. “I was quite pleased with the evening,” said Craig Jones, executive director of the RCC. “The real story and the theme behind the evening is how unique our city is because we have cohesiveness between the various departments. “It’s not just the RCMP working on its own, it’s everyone working together for the betterment of Richmond.” Jones went on to say that he was impressed with the quality of each and every nominee.

“They were all deserving and they were all winners in my mind, but unfortunately, it does come down to choosing a winner in each category,” he added. The keynote speaker, Jack McGee, president and CEO of the Justice Institute of B.C., added a real personal touch to the evening as he thanked all the men and women who were nominated. The evening began with a lively reception, followed by a gourmet three-course dinner and awards celebration. Early on in the evening, a video depicting Hollywood’s version of emergency personnel, with scenes from various CIS shows, entertained the crowd. “I think it was clear to all that what our men and women do is not about CSI, it’s about the real contributions and sacrifices they perform each and every day,” said Jones. The 911 Awards are a joint partnership between the RCC and the City of Richmond. The RCC founded the awards ceremony in 2003 as a way to give tribute to the men and women who ensure our community’s safety, along with the businesses and volunteers who support their efforts. For more information about the 911 Awards, visit www.richmondchamber.ca.

Everyday, Richmond’s first responders work hard to ensure your safety. The City of Richmond is proud to salute our local heroes – the men and women who serve and protect our community. The annual Richmond Chamber of Commerce 911 Awards gives us an opportunity to thank our public safety professionals and volunteers for their dedication. By working together with the community, these people make Richmond a safe place to live, work and play.

Staff Sgt. Murray MacAulay nominates Const. Vanessa Christopherson and Sgt. Dennis Wilson for their excellent team effort, communication skills and decisiveness in preventing a suicide attempt. Last July Christopherson was the first responder at the Arthur Laing Bridge where a visibly distressed man was seated on the ledge high above the river. Wilson arrived shortly thereafter. Seeing the officers, the man quickly moved out of reach and voiced his intention to kill himself. It took almost 50 minutes to talk the distressed man down. Though calmer, there was still an extreme risk of the male jumping off the bridge. The officers had to retain the man’s trust in order to prevent him from any sudden and lethal action. Then while waiting for a suicide councillor to arrive a rescue opportunity presented itself. Wilson tossed a cigarette to the man. When the man crouched to shield himself from the wind to light the cigarette, Wilson quickly took the troubled man into

Paramedic of the Year: Roger Mah In 2010, Roger Mah took on a special project. He redeveloped the Vial of Life Program in Richmond. In an emergency, sick people may be unable to communicate medical information. The “vial of life” program stores physician and pharmacist contacts, allergies and other medical information in a vial in the refrigerator. A fridge magnet alerts emerCHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS gency services that the client Roger Mah is part of the Vial of Life program. Working closely with the Victorian Order of Nurses, as well as Richmond Fire and Rescue partners, the RCMP, the City of Richmond, members of the Falls Prevention Network, and local businesses, Mah was able to develop a plan to bring this time saving tool back into the community. Due to Mah’s hard work, much of it on his own time, Richmond became the pilot community for this program in BC. Paramedic Mah is an example of a BCAS member that exceeds our vision, mission, and values. His leadership is only surpassed by his dedication to his staff, patients, community, and the BCAS as a whole.

Rain and seawater made it almost Nominees: CCG rescue specialist Brad Falconer CCG infrared operator Mike Lydiatt CCG divers Travis Kamer and Marc Rowe CCG seaman John Dowling Richmond auxiliary leader John Urquhart

impossible to see the survivors clinging to the mast and rigging. The crew brought their hovercraft as close as possible to the sunken boat. From there, divers rescued the survivors until all were returned to the hovercraft. At one point a large wave picked up the hovercraft and landed it on top of diver Thody who was holding a survivor firmly in his arms. They sank momentarily. Thankfully a second wave flung the hovercraft away allowing both men to reach the surface. Diver Thody never let go of his survivor. Two crew were injured during this incident and the hovercraft was damaged extensively during this 30hour ordeal. With the weather and seas beyond what their vessel was designed for and risking their own lives, they never let go until the rescue was completed and the hovercraft returned safely to Richmond.

A pilot project between the Richmond RCMP and DFO Steveston began on July 11, 2010. The pilot project was created to allow uniformed members of the Richmond RCMP and Fisheries officers (of the Steveston office) of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) to work together to assess the level of marine community activity and to provide a uniformed presence on the waterways surrounding the City of Richmond. The pilot project ended in October 2010. Shortly thereafter, due in large part to the strong working relationship developed between Supt. Ken Green of DFO and Cpl. Lunny of the Richmond RCMP, Green approached Lunny with an offer. Green offered their existing vessel (RHIB) to Richmond RCMP at no cost. The aquisition of this vessel is a tremendous benefit, not only to the Richmond RCMP but the City of Richmond. This vessel will be used to conduct marine patrols in the waterways surrounding the City of Richmond; to interact with the marine community and to detect, deter and investigate criminal activity in these waterways. The initial pilot project goal in 2010 to detect, deter and investigate criminal activity, was obtained by the actual number of interactions that took place last summer

Carol Clark writes, “My mom passed away two years ago, quite suddenly. She was 61 years old and I was 37 years old with a two-year-old son and a newborn baby. She had just retired from work after 20 plus years. She and I were looking forward to spending lots of time together — bonding with her only two grandchildren and with me during my maternity leave. We had so many visions of happy carefree days ahead. How I long to hear her voice again. Even if it’s to hear her tell me that it’s cold out there and I should make sure I dress the boys warmly. Comments like that in the past would have elicited a ‘yeah, yeah, I know what I’m doing mom ...’ response from me to her. I really miss my mom. I’ve thought about all the advice she gave me over my life and there are so many. She was such an inspirational role model to me. Now that I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend, there is one advice that stands out. I didn’t understand it as much when she was trying to instill in me this advice when I was young. Back then, I just wanted to hang out with my friends, socializing. But now in the midst of my fast-paced life, I truly understand why she gave me this advice. She wanted me to have something for me that was independent from all the expectations of me in life. Here is my entry into your contest: “The best advice my mom gave me was to find a hobby, so that I would always have something for myself to enjoy in life.”

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Richmond Soccer hosted the Coastal Cup Championships last weekend at Minoru Park and Richmond High. Among the 22 championship games were two hosts teams in action, the Richmond Red Hots Selects (left) doing battle with Semiamhoo Thunder in the U16A girls final, while Richmond United (right) squared off with Chilliwack in the U18B boys final.

Red Hot Selects win Coastal Cup in thrilling fashion

er Joscelyn Wallace came up huge with three diving saves. It was enough to set the stage for victory as Richmond converted just two of its five attempts, including Levarsky’s game-winning final shot. “I didn’t even look at the last shot,” laughed Clarke. “These girls show so much strength, maturity and confidence. There is just no doubt in themselves.” Even with the cup run now over, the Selects will be as busy as ever thanks to five girls on the provincial U16 team and three more playing in the Pacific Coast League. Clarke expects his squad to be challenged by a team from Prince George in the provincial final. The Red Hot Selects also include: Justine Do, Brenda Murillo, Madison Higginbotham, Alura Castle, Alyssa Graeme, Natasha Magnus, Ashley Chen and Jap Nagra.

The Richmond Red Hot Selects are poised to represent B.C. at this fall’s U16 National Club championships in Calgary after a remarkable effort to keep their dream season alive. The Selects scored in the dying moments of regulation time then prevailed in gut wreching penalty kicks to defeat the Semiahmoo Thunder 3-2 in Saturday’s U16A Coastal Cup championship game at the Minoru Oval. The result puts the locals a win away from advancing to the nationals.

Sports U18 United earn trip to Penticton BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

Richmond United are riding home field advantage all the way to the U18 Provincial Cup Championships this July in Penticton. In the rarest of draws, United received three consecutive home dates for their Coastal “B” Cup qualifying games. They started with a 3-2 round of 16 victory over league rival Kerrisdale, then took out a pair of District 5 teams — Ladner Celtic and Surrey United by 1-0 scores. The stage was set for last Saturday’s Coastal championship game which just so happened to be hosted by Richmond Soccer at Minoru Park. United and

the Chilliwack Attack were already guaranteed berths into the provincials by reaching the final. The hosts got off to a solid start, but failed to capitalize on some excellent chances which allowed Chilliwack to open the scoring against the run of the play. Richmond drew even on a terrific free kick from 20-yards out by Nick Varley, but the Fraser Valley opponent would later capitalize on a couple of defensive miscues to produce a 3-1 win. “It was unfortunate we didn’t bring our ‘A’ game,” said United head coach Nigel Evans. “Chilliwack stepped it up a notch and we made a couple of uncharacteristic errors. The boys are definitely looking forward to seeing

them again in Penticton.” Richmond had plenty of success at the U18 level this past season as its top team captured the B.C. Selects League championship and was a win away from also reaching the Coastal Cup “A” final. With a team featuring players in Grades 11 and 12, this is Evans’ second run through the Richmond Youth Soccer system, a span that covers 20 years. He initially took his son through, starting in 1991, and it’s his passion for the “beautiful game” that has kept him involved. “We also had a Gold II team this season and the three of us worked very closely together,” said Evans of the program’s success. “This allowed us to expose players to a higher level and give us the flexibility to move them between teams with a development program.” After an intense month of April, United will enjoy a few weeks off before resuming training for the Provincial Cup which will be an eight-team tournament slated for July 7-10.
