Vancouver Whale Watch:

Celebrates 15 Years in Steveston Village by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier and submitted

The day that Cedric Towers and I planned to sit down for an interview he was in the midst of doing what he loves - tracking whales. I saw first hand what this busy owner and founder of Vancouver Whale Watch does to ensure his

clients experience the adventure of a lifetime. Armed with a radio (a whale citizens band radio of sorts), Towers stood in front of a chart of the Salish Sea, communicating with members of the Pacific Whale Watch Network both from Canada and America, as they shared up to the minute information about local whale sightings. Members of this cooperative network include ferry workers, fishermen, land-based spotters and other whale watching boats. Once the information is conveyed through the Network, Vancouver Whale Watch boats zip over to the area in hope of a viewing. Sixteen years ago Towers came up with the idea of launching his business. The company began in 1998 as an eco-tourism company called Captain Zodiac. Within a year Towers decided that with the right boats, both seaworthy and fast, whale watching from Steveston was indeed possible. This was a groundbreaking concept as up until then this type of enterprise was considered fit only


June - July 2014

for the Vancouver Island area. It was Jamie Bray, Tower’s friend and whale watching colleague from Tofino, who shared his love of the business with Towers. Raised in a science-oriented family, Tower’s father was a Botany professor. The family lived all over North America and in the 1960s Towers moved to Vancouver. After attending U.B.C. he fished commercially for salmon for a number of years and travelled up and down the coast working on various projects. Vancouver Whale Watch started with a 12-passenger zodiac, and two years later added the larger Explorathor boat to the fleet. This boat was specifically designed for marine mammal viewing and provided passengers with excellent visual and picture taking opportunities. The Explorathor Express was purchased in 2002; increasing passenger capacity to 184 people a day over two trips using all three vessels.

exceed emission standard requirements significantly reducing impact on the marine environment. In turn, passengers benefit through a faster, quieter and smoother ride.

In 2009 the original Explorathor was retired and in 2010 Explorathor II, built locally in North Vancouver, was launched. Towers designed the boats so that the forward roofs can be removed in the warmer months allowing the passengers to enjoy an open-air experience.

Operating seven days a week from April 1st to October 31st and employing over 25 staff members during peak season, Vancouver Whale Watch welcomes thousands of passengers aboard each year for an experience they will never forget. One of the greatest perks of Towers’ job is seeing the anticipation as clients are fitted in weatherproof suits, hats and gloves. Upon their return the highlight is hearing excited stories about experiences out on the water. Towers jokes that he could have struck it rich by investing in real estate, but for him this is a much more satisfying career.

Both the Express and Explorathor vessels are powered with water jets and the most fuelefficient engines available. These engines

Occasionally tours have hit the jackpot and come across a super pod. Comprised of the three resident pods (J, K and L), they are actually an extended family in the area. Constituting as many as 90 whales, they occasionally come together for a big family reunion of sorts, and in a greeting ceremony they form lines and communicate to one another. Speaking of communicating, if whales are in the vicinity, Vancouver Whale Watch staff will shut off the boat’s engine and use a hydrophone (an underwater microphone) to eavesdrop on resident Orcas, which can be identified by their dialects. Passengers are able to listen to the conversation over a P.A. system.

to 5 hours for a tour. The 5-hour window of time allows Vancouver Whale Watch to take you further afield, if necessary, to increase chances of locating the mighty mammals. And have no fear; there are washrooms onboard the Explorathor and Express boats. Pack your lunch for the trip, or contact Pierside Deli on the dock, and they can organize a whale watching lunch for you.


Towers sees the boats as “floating classrooms” and with the expertise of the skipper and naturalist onboard, passengers learn about the eco system and the interrelationship between whales and the salmon on which they feed. The chance of seeing Orcas varies with the seasons. Working with the Pacific Whale Watch Network gives the company a sighting success rate of over 95%. The vessels typically travel through the Gulf Islands and American San Juan Islands, allowing passengers to see

June - July 2014

a variety of wildlife including, seals, sea lions, porpoises, eagles, and occasionally dolphins (which have recently made an appearance in the area). The business guarantees that should you not see a whale you are welcome to return for a free trip. This offer never expires. Towers reports that a Japanese tourist returned after twelve years to take them up on the offer. As for satisfied customers, many people come back for the thrill of getting out on the water again. A couple from Chicago returns each year and have taken ten tours.

Closer to home, if you are interested in a tour of Steveston’s waterfront, the charming River Queen boat is in operation from June through to mid-September. On this 45 minute fully narrated expedition you will learn about the nature and history of the area. You will see the commercial fishing fleet, Shady Island, Britannia Heritage Shipyard and the Gulf of Georgia National Historic Cannery. Keep your eyes peeled; en route you may spot seals, eagles, herons, swans and cormorants. Vancouver Whale Watch generously gives back to the community each December by donating the service of a skipper and open air zodiac to transport Santa and his helpers as part of the Steveston Merchants Association's Christmas in Steveston Village event. The summer months are prime whale watching months. People travel from all over the world to enjoy what is on our doorstep. We are so fortunate to live in a community where we have the opportunity to hop aboard a Vancouver Whale Watch boat and enjoy all of the breathtaking scenery this area has to offer – and have a 95% chance of spotting a whale!

London Heritage Farm:

Steveston's Historic Treasure by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier and submitted

It is said that ladybugs bring good luck. If this is true, London Heritage Farm has good fortune on its side, as plenty of these wellloved insects are hard at work throughout the site. London Farm Heritage Society administrator, Mary Lou Schootman, laughs when she refers to the ladybugs as her pets. Following field trips to the Farm, she has had children tell her that sighting the spotted bugs is one of the highlights of their visit. It is a certainty that Stevestonites are the lucky ones to have this historic site on our doorstep. Surprisingly, some locals have yet to discover this spectacular treasure. London Heritage Farm is located on 4 acres


overlooking the south arm of the Fraser River. It is only a 3-kilometre walk along the dike from Steveston Village yet when you walk down the driveway there is an immediate feeling of tranquility as your senses zero in on fragrant flowers and birds chirping. The park-like setting contains the restored London family farmhouse and the Spragg family barn, heritage and herb gardens, old farming equipment, a small hand tool museum, chickens, bees, allotment gardens, large lawns, gazebo and picnic area. Bruce Livingston, President of the London Heritage Farm Society, points out that our community is not very old. The heritage buildings that remain in the Steveston area

June - July 2014

are primarily wooden structures, and we have lost many due to development and fires. He says, “To have this original structure on the original site is pretty special.” In 1877 Charles Edwin London and his brother William relocated from Ontario to British Columbia. Within three years the young men had purchased 200 acres of land for $2,000. They built a small farmhouse and began clearing and draining the land in preparation for farming. In 1888, Charles London married Henrietta Dalzeil and started building the farmhouse. First to be constructed was the northern side of the house, which now contains the kitchen, gift shop and the upper floor where the children’s bedrooms and playroom are located. During the 1890s adding on the front section of the house doubled the square footage. The farmhouse has been fully restored and furnished to reflect a snapshot of pioneering life in Richmond during the 1880s to 1930s. Six rooms display furniture, pictures, clothing, quilts, everyday items and photographs of the London family. In addition to the house and farm, the

June - July 2014

London’s established a general store and post office, and they built a wharf (hence the name London Landing) from which they would ship produce to New Westminster. In total the family had eight children, three of whom died in infancy. Roses are planted in the Memorial Rose Garden to commemorate the entire London family. Charles London sold the farm in 1919 three years after his wife died and he moved the family to Marpole. In 1921 the London’s eldest daughter, Lucy, and her husband, Herbert Howse, bought the farm back and remained there until 1948. After a succession of rentals, the City of Richmond purchased London Farm in 1978.


London Heritage Farm is owned by the City of Richmond. The London Heritage Farm Society is a non-profit organization and operates the Farm through fundraising, donations, and revenue from rentals, the tearoom and gift shop. The Society is responsible for the care of the heritage garden and the allotment gardens. The heritage garden is designed in the style of an English country garden and features a gorgeous seasonal display of annuals, bushes, berries, herbs, perennials, trees and vines, which could be found in local gardens at the turn of the 20th century. Seventy allotment garden beds are available for public use. There is currently a waiting list; however once you have a plot it is time to express your individuality. It is inspiring to stroll through the west garden and have


a peek at how gardeners personalize their spaces and see what they are growing. Allotment gardeners are required to join the London Heritage Farm Society, pay a fee, and contribute a minimum number of volunteer hours per year to the operation and maintenance of the Farm. The “Chicken Club� has an active roost of ten chickens and a rooster. Free-range eggs are available for sale, mainly on the weekends. London Heritage Farm relies heavily on volunteers. From assisting in the gift shop, to front line work in the tea room and behind the scenes work in the kitchen, lending a hand with special events, giving tours of the site, and working in the garden, there are many ways to contribute to keep any potential volunteer happy.

June - July 2014

Wedding season is here and the south lawn with its large gazebo is a popular spot to exchange vows. The heritage gardens are an ideal backdrop for wedding photos. This summer Schootman has already booked over 30 weddings, picnics and other special events. Afternoon tea is highly recommended. Tables are set formally with linen, china cups, teapots, silverware and a dessert platter. Tea service is located in the home’s former dining room that also served as the general store, post office and a makeshift church. You will enjoy the Farm’s own blend of London Lady tea, a large and very tasty home baked scone accompanied by jam or jelly made on site, in addition to three other baked goodies. This is also a unique location to host a bridal shower, birthday party or baby shower. Schootman reports some young girls enjoy dressing up for the occasion, decked out in dresses and fascinators.

you can take home and pop in the oven. Special events are celebrated year round at the Farm. Both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are popular for afternoon tea – be sure to plan ahead for these special occasions with a reservation. A plant sale is held every year on Mother’s Day weekend. The house is decked in red and white trimmings to commemorate Canada Day. London Farm Family Farm Day in August is an event not to be missed. In November and December be sure to visit the house when it is adorned in Christmas finery. They key message Schootman wishes to share is London Heritage Farm is a community resource. “Come and explore. Bring your friends and family. Pack a picnic basket. We love it when the site is used and enjoyed,” she says. And if good fortune is on your side, perhaps you will spot a ladybug.

The gift shop sells London Farm’s tea blend, scone mix, jams and jellies and an assortment of gift items. In addition, they sell scones that

Many Hands Make Light Work by Sarah Gordon Recently my sister-in-law came to visit for a few days. She never arrives empty handed. Not only does she come laden with thoughtful gifts, which we always enjoy, but she also brings along something that lasts much longer than a bottle of wine or cut flowers. On two occasions she brought her paintbrush and putty knife, and this time she came armed with her gardening gloves. She is a fine example of the Girl Guide motto “lend a hand.” My sister-in-law likes to pitch in and leave behind the gift of having made a difference. She has sanded, puttied and painted as only an artist could, and saved us a small fortune in the process. On her recent visit she recruited our children to join her in the Easter rain to participate in some long overdue yard work. After a trip to the gardening store to buy the necessary supplies, they pulled weeds and planted seeds. It reminds me of the barn-raising scene in the film ‘Witness’, where the Amish come together to assist a newlywed couple. While the men build the barn, the women prepare food, and after the hard work is complete they gather to feast and celebrate a job well done.

something to benefit the community (for example Garry Point beach clean ups, or planting trees), or to work on the maintenance of a communal asset such as a camp. The motive is to leave something a little better than the way you found it. With this in mind, it makes me wonder if there is a way to resurrect this philosophy at a community level, like the Amish. With many nuclear families often not living near relatives, perhaps we could ‘adopt’ neighbours to help and many hands would make light work. One weekend could be a gardening work party at your house; another time you could repay the favour by helping paint your neighbour’s fence. The word ‘communitas’ rings in my ear from my days as an Anthropology major. Not only does working together fast track a project, but it also connects and builds communities. Following a work party, share a meal and raise a glass to acknowledge your mutual accomplishment. Who knows, before long you may move from planting a veggie patch to raising a barn!

When a solo project feels too overwhelming to finish, or my back is aching, I often wish that I could wave a wand and an Amish fairy godmother would magically appear. Why do people not come together more to help each other? Is it simply because our lives are too busy and we either do it ourselves (when we have the time) or hire someone to do the job for us? Are we too proud to ask for help? Or perhaps we don’t belong to a community organization where we have access to a group of eager and willing assistants? Is it an urban dilemma? In rural areas do people come together more frequently? Like the Amish, Girl Guide groups and church groups organize work parties to either do 24

The 69th annual

STEVESTON SALMON FESTIVAL Canada’s Biggest Little Birthday Party Since 1945!

Tuesday, July 1, 2014 The people of Steveston have come together every year since 1945 to celebrate Canada’s birthday and the rich heritage of our community. Thanks to the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers and the generous support of sponsors, the Steveston Community Society organizes one of the largest non-profit Canada Day celebrations across the country! On average, over 70,000 people from across Richmond, Metro Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest spend Canada Day with us! The day begins at 10:00am with a parade through historic Steveston village, which features over 100 entries including floats, marching bands, celebrities, politicians, community groups, vintage vehicles and much more. Then, the Festival is officially

kicked off at the Opening Ceremonies on the Main Stage at noon with dignitaries, speeches, and the singing of O Canada. After the official opening, the stage bursts with great entertainment all afternoon. Festival highlights include attractions such as the Japanese Cultural Show, Craft Fair, Trade Show, an awesome Children’s Festival, Martial Arts Demonstrations, Youth Rock Fest, Food Fair plus an Art Show and Exhibit. The main attraction is our famous salmon barbecue where over 1200 pounds of wild salmon filets are grilled over open fire pits. This popular treat sells out every year! Whatever your age, whatever your interests, there is something for everyone at the Steveston Salmon Festival!

Children’s Bike Parade This is an exciting opportunity for children to show their Canadian pride AND cycle the big parade route to the cheers and encouragement of the waiting crowds before the floats take off! Bring your decorated bikes, trikes and wagons to the Gulf of Georgia Cannery parking lot at the corner of Chatham and Fourth Avenue at 8:30am. They will cycle off at 9:30am SHARP. No pre-registration is necessary. ALL children must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian - no exceptions. Helmets are manditory for all riders and skaters. Pre-parade fun includes a special participation ribbon and treats for the kids as they wait for the parade marshals to send them off. The bike parade travels down Third Avenue then east on Moncton Street to the Community Police Station.

Canada Day Parade - 10:00am The Steveston Salmon Festival Parade attracts visitors from around the Lower Mainland and further across the Pacific Northwest. The Parade marches off at 10:00am sharp from Garry Point Park and winds through the streets of Steveston past the Community Centre to Railway Avenue.

With over 100 entries on an annual basis, the Parade takes nearly two hours to complete! All along the parade route, people are thrilled by the exciting variety of entries: from military colour guards, to beautifully decorated floats, to marching bands, vintage vehicles, celebrities, sports teams, politicians and other dignitaries, community and cultural groups, our parade will thrill you from start to finish. Come early, bring your lawn chair and sunscreen and stake your claim along the parade route!

Parade Route Closures

Starting at 9:00am on July 1st, road closures will be in effect for the parade. Chatham Street from Garry Point to Third Avenue, Third Avenue between Chatham and Moncton Streets, and Moncton Street from Third Avenue to Railway Avenue will be CLOSED in preparation for the parade. Roads will re-open once the parade ends at 12:15pm, however Moncton Street from Third Avenue to Bayview Street will remain closed until 5pm. During the parade, access in and out of Bayview Street will be blocked to all traffic, so residents are advised to make prior arrangements if they need to leave the area during these times. Access for emergencies only will be available on the east side of Bayview Street. Bayview Street will re-open once the parade ends.

Craft Fair If you are a fan of craft fairs, this is one not to be missed! You will find everything from jewellery to pottery to textiles to home canning, baking, woodwork, photo art, and so much more! If a crafty person can imagine it, you can be sure it is at our craft fair!

Horticulture Show The Steveston Salmon Festival has hosted a horticulture show since 1969. This professionally judged flower and garden show is very popular among local garden enthusiasts. Stunning roses, charming wild flowers, mouth-watering vegetables and herbs, plants rare and beautiful, and a special category for children.

Japanese Cultural Show Celebrating the rich culture of our community, the Japanese Cultural Show features displays and demonstrations on a variety of traditional Japanese arts such as origami, bonsai and doll making.
