It’s pumpkin patch time

Baseball bat thugs beat teens Boys were attacked in broad daylight BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Police are hunting a gang of baseball bat-wielding thugs who beat up two teenagers on their bikes in broad daylight. Moments before the apparently unprovoked attack in residential south Richmond, the 15year-olds had been cycling home from playing basketball at South Arm Community Centre. But at around 3 p.m. Sunday, while traveling along Ash Street near the Williams Road intersection, the pair were struck and knocked off their bikes by what is thought to be a black Honda Civic with tinted windows and an N decal. Before they could get up, three males aged around 20 —

two of East Indian descent and one Caucasian — jumped out of the car and set about the stricken pair with baseball bats. The boys were then left beaten and shaken at the side of the road as the suspects — none of whom the victims reportedly knew or had seen before — fled in their car. It’s thought that a resident in the area called the police. By the time they arrived, however, the suspects were gone. “We were dispatched to a report of an assault in progress in the 9600 block of Ash Street,” Richmond RCMP’s Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said in an email. “At this time, it does appear to be an unprovoked attack. see RCMP page 6

A 21-year-old man got caught filming up an unsuspecting woman’s skirt in the middle of a busy town centre store. Harshit Garcha shot the video while he walked around Winners in Lansdowne Centre. Garcha was spotted by the store’s loss prevention officer approaching the woman before holding the camera under her skirt.

He was immediately arrested and confessed that he’d taken the footage in the hope of selling it on the Internet. The video, Richmond Provincial Court heard, depicted the woman’s underwear and other areas of her body under the skirt. The camera Garcha, now 23, was caught with on June, 2010, also contained dozens of similar videos shot under women’s skirts. see Judge page 4 09143553

Woodward elementary celebrates 50th

Teachers, students recall the day the little school opened

BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

In 1961, Dianne Scharfe was 19 years old and teaching her first year at the new Woodward elementary — an annex to Thomas Kidd elementary. Every morning, class began with a reading from the Bible and reciting the Lord’s Prayer, recalled the 69-year-old retired educator. Scharfe (her last name was West at the time) will never forget the day when a rather “difficult” boy flipped himself backwards while she was reading from the Bible. “I was at the front of the classroom, when all of a sudden I saw these two feet sticking out from underneath my Bible,” said Sharfe, still shaking her head in disbelief five decades later. Sharfe, along with four other Woodward staff and students, got together with the News to reminisce prior to the school’s 50th anniversary reunion Sunday. Sharfe described her first day of work and how exciting it was to jump into her 1957 Chevrolet and — Jeannette head to Woodward Lemieux, from her Dianne Sharfe Vancouver home. “As I approached the Steveston turnoff I could clearly see to the west, the very small, brand new one-storey building of Daniel Woodward,” she said. “I proudly pulled into the parking area and entered the school where I met the Head Teacher and Grade 3 teacher, Jean Myron and Pat Fuller, the Grade 2 teacher. “And there I was now ‘Miss West’ in my first year of teaching the first Grade 1 class that entered this brand new primary annex to Thomas Kidd elementary school.” When Woodward opened its doors, there were approximately 100 students between Grade 1 to 3. “There was no library, no music room or gym,” said Sharfe, adding her salary then was $420 a month. “A mobile library came in once a week.” Jamey Paterson, 55, was a student of Sharfe’s in 1962. He remembers that all the young boys were crazy about Sharfe.

“Teachers were expected to fail at least one student a year,”

KEVIN HILL/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Jamey Paterson, Jeannette Lemieux, Dianne Sharfe, John Young and Don Taylor (left to right) have fun reminiscing about their experiences at Woodward elementary in anticipation of its 50th anniversary Open House this Sunday. “I was six years old and all the boys had a crush on Miss West,” Paterson said. “Can you imagine a six-year-old boy with a beautiful young teacher?” Sharfe, a little embarrassed, said: “I remember Jamey as a sweet little boy with a twinkle in his eye and a very warm smile,” she said. “To me he really hasn’t changed.” When asked about discipline, both Sharfe and Paterson looked at each other and smiled. “I have to admit that a few times I was punished and had to stand against the wall,” Paterson said. However, Paterson was quick to point out that it was a great time to be young and living in Richmond. “It was really like living in the country,” Paterson said. “We used to jump the ditches on our way to school and run through the fields.” Jeannette Lemieux (Merkle) was 22 when she came to teach in 1962 as the Grade 4 teacher. When the News met up with the group last week, it was the first time in 47 years that Lemieux and Sharfe had seen each other. Lemieux, 71, smiled as she remembers being expected to teach singing and tuning into

the CBC Radio show, This is Music, to build up her song repertoire. “We didn’t have musical instruments either,” she added. “We had to be creative in our approach.” The sixties were also a time when teachers had to record student attendances on a daily register sheet, which was submitted to the Richmond School Board before they got paid. As the memories flooded in, the camaraderie that existed all those years ago was evident. “Do you remember we didn’t have a janitor and so if a child threw up we threw sawdust on the vomit and cleaned it up,” laughed Sharfe. “The kids also high jumped in sawdust,” quipped back Lemieux. Since there was no gym, Lemieux remembers having her students’ exercise through the desks and around the chairs. Both Lemieux and Sharfe added that it was expected they fail at least one student a year. They also agreed they loved their time spent at the tiny annex. “It was really a special time,” said Lemieux. see Display page 4

Abrams said of his client, who hopes to become a welder. Fratkin said it was irrelevant that the victim might not be identifiable in the footage, saying there was definite “harm, embarrassment and victimization,” of the individual. “I’m sure you wouldn’t like it Mr. Garcha if it happened to you or a family member,” the judge told him. Despite Crown counsel Brian MacFarlane asking for a fine and probation, Fratkin said the accused was worthy of a conditional sentence of just probation. “If he fails, the Crown can take the appropriate action,” added the judge. Garcha was also ordered to have no contact, direct or indirect, with the victim and was banned from all Winners stores in B.C.

“Recess was a gas, we had so much fun.” One day in April 1970, he remembers “being rushed into the gym as a Grade 1 student to watch a small black and white TV to witness the Apollo 13 splash down and everyone cheered.” The man responsible for much of the work behind the 50th anniversary open house this Sunday is Don Taylor, who spent 19 years at Woodward — as a firstyear teacher in 1977 and again from 1999 to 2004 as

the principal. “In the gym, we will have displays from all the decades,” said Taylor. “We expect more than 500 people to show up during the day.” The Woodward Elementary School 50 Year Celebration, a reunion of past and present staff, alumni and students happens on Sunday, Oct. 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. in Woodward elementary, 10300 Seacote Rd.

attracted to voyeurism.’ “I think he has a lack of understanding or is naive of what he was doing.” Garcha’s lawyer, Gary Abrams, said that, should the footage have ended up doing the rounds on the Internet, the victim would not have been identifiable, even to herself. He added that it would have been unlikely that the victim would even be looking on the Internet for such a photo, anyway. Requesting a conditional discharge for his client — in line with a similar offence in a different incident in the Aberdeen Mall — Abrams said Garcha now understands the consequences of his actions and accepts there will likely be negative publicity as a result. “He has a stable home life and steady employment, with prospects,”

Continued from page 1 However, he claimed he didn’t shoot those videos and they must have been taken by the camera’s previous owner. Garcha was charged with five counts of secretly observing or recording for a sexual purpose, but was eventually found guilty after a short trial of just one. Sentencing Garcha to two years probation on Thursday, Judge Ron Fratkin described the crime as “insidious and alarming.” Fratkin said the victim would not have known what was on Garcha’s mind and what kind of sexual offender she was dealing with. “This can cause difficulties for people to rationalize,” he added. “The (pre-sentence report) states that he was ‘motivated by money’ … ‘but

Background Given the very complex issues surrounding the impact of noise in a growing city, and the technical advancements since the inception of the City’s Public Health Protection Bylaw 6989, in 2000, the City is undergoing a noise regulation assessment. As part of the assessment, the City is holding a thorough community public participation process during October and November. In addition, the City has also scheduled opportunities for members of the business community and other stakeholders to provide their input.

The B.C. Coroners Service announced this week it has identified a woman whose feet washed ashore near Ladner in 2008. The two feet washed up on two separate beaches several months apart. The woman’s right foot was found on May 22, 2008 on Kirkland Island. The left was found on Nov. 11, 2008 near the end of Garden City Road in Richmond. Each foot was encased in a matching size 7 New Balance running shoe and DNA analysis quickly showed they came from the same individual. After an exhaustive postmortem investigation by the B.C. Coroners Service, the feet were positively identified by further DNA analysis as belonging to a New Westminster resident who committed suicide by jumping off the Pattullo Bridge

Keep faith in election

I

t was with a somewhat heavy heart that we listened to longtime MP, former Richmond mayor and MLA Greg HalseyBrandt explain why he won’t be seeking re-election in the Nov. 19 civic election. His reasons seemed to support the adage — you can’t change city hall. He spoke of corporatization and complacency on city council and bemoaned the fact he could get almost no support for his various initiatives — and these weren’t hair-brained ideas. We’re talking things like assessing city finances, department by department. In fact, it’s a bit surprising they weren’t already doing that. Halsey-Brandt’s inability to affect change, begs the question, who can? If one of our most popular and experienced councillors couldn’t make a difference at city hall, what’s the hope for the average citizen who has a total of one vote every three years? It may be tempting to throw our hands up and sink into a kind of political malaise. But let’s not go there. In fact, let’s go the other way. Civic governance matters too much. It impacts the day-to-day quality of our lives in many and profound ways. What our neighbourhoods look like, what our community centres offer, how we get to work — city hall has a say in it all. And, in many ways, city councillors and staff have done a great job making Richmond a healthy, livable city, but city council needs to be responsive. It needs to be open to new ideas, and those ideas are out there. Creative, energetic people are also out there, we need to support them. Richmond is growing at a crazy rate. Who knows what that growth is going to look like. But we have an election on. This is our chance to have a say. Listen carefully to the candidates. It matters who we vote for. Call us naive, but change can happen.

CHOICE WORDS

Focus on little things, city The Editor, It is sad to hear that council veteran Greg Halsey-Brandt is leaving council. Regarding his comments that council is “forgetting about the little things that impact people’s day-to-day lives,” look no further than the darkened Steveston boardwalk adjacent to the Omni construction site. After a few recent after-dinner walks in darkness along that part of the popular promenade, I dropped into city hall to report that all the lights normally illuminating this area were out. I was then told by someone in the public works department that the power to the lights was cut off by Omni because of construction. He had no idea when the lights will come back on. I wish to ask Mayor Brodie and his council cronies why Omni was allowed to douse the power on such a popular walkway that is normally used by Richmond residents (taxpayers) throughout the year. Why was Omni not required, at its own expense, to set up a temporary lighting system so that residents could continue to utilize that area. The council’s inaction on this issue has jeopardized the safety and security of Richmond residents and has reduced the usability of this important recreational amenity. Come on, council, do your duty and see to it that this stretch of the Steveston boardwalk is once again lit up and made more accessible during the fall and winter months. Marshall Letcher Richmond

Hockey adds to Canada’s melting pot

There’s been a lot of stories in the news lately about immigration, again. Really, having a lot of stories about immigration in Canada means it’s a day that ends in a Y. Also common on days that end in Y? Stories about hockey. A conversation with a friend of mine a few weeks back got me thinking about that. He’s a rabid hockey fan. I… am aware that hockey exists. Ice is involved, right? And pucks? I just don’t get hockey. I never played it, I can’t skate and I’m not interested in the game at any level, from NHL down to those wee little kids who skate around on bent ankles. I know, I know, I’m a terrible Canadian. Send your letters to the editor. But there are a couple of things about hockey that I admire. I will admit it’s a tough sport. It requires a lot of skill and athleticism to try and slap a frozen piece of rubber into a net while huge dudes in plastic armour slam into you. But lots of sports are tough. If you’d like to hear my canned speech about how tough long-distance cycling is, send me a selfaddressed stamped envelope. No, what I like most about hockey is the fans, and how they reflect how Canada is changing. If you watched any of the coverage of fans during the run-up to the Canucks try for the Stanley Cup in

Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH

the spring, you saw faces of people from all around the world. Their parents and grandparents were from Scotland and Ireland and England, and also from the Punjab and Sri Lanka, Hong Kong and the Philippines, the Caribbean and Latin America. In other words, it was the same faces you see when you walk down any street in Metro Vancouver. We’re from all over. Increasingly, we’re a mish-mash of ethnicities and cultures. It would have been easy for hockey, an institution that dates back to when Canada was still a white-dominated nation, to exclude newcomers. Fans could have turned up their noses at “outsiders.” Instead, hockey culture has largely embraced new citizens. I think this shows up one of the best aspects of Canada itself. The big difference between Canada and the United States when it comes to immigration is allegedly the mosaic versus the melting pot. Supposedly, Canadian multiculturalism means people can come and work and live and become citizens, but keep their unique

cultural traditions. Whereas everyone who comes to the U.S. is supposed to assimilate. But I don’t see that happening. In fact, if anything it’s Canada that is the true melting pot and the U.S. that keeps people separated. Canada guarantees that newcomers can keep their own religions and customs, as long as those customs don’t harm others. But you can’t live in a vibrant, urban society like ours without exchanging things with those around you. So every community brings its ideas and its culture, and they don’t stay part of one community for long. Canada, at its best, is not a mosaic, with the pieces close to, but not quite touching, one another. It’s a big, hearty stew, constantly simmering. Sure, you can haul out an ingredient and figure out where it comes from. But it’s much better all mixed together. One of those common ingredients is hockey. It doesn’t belong to any one group, it’s for everyone to try. You still see Americans joking about hockey as the last sport dominated by Caucasians. But here in Canada, peewee and junior hockey teams are increasingly looking like, well, like Canada. Not European, or Asian, or African. Just Canadian.

The Richmond News October 21, 2011 A9

Open letter to BC Hydro/ Corix, When it comes to the Smart Meter Program, I can feel my blood pressure rise. While I was away on vacation, I left instructions that a meter exchange was not to happen until I was home so I could shut down my computer equipment. I have one piece of equipment in particular that is approximately 10 years old and could cost upwards of $50,000 to replace if it is not shut down properly. My request was honoured in that a meter exchange did not take place. However, a request for me to call within 3 days was left. As I was still away at that time, Corix called to make an appointment for Sept. 26. As it happened, this was actually quite convenient for me. As is not surprising in today’s “corporate” world, the installer did not show up on the appointed day. When I called Corix to find out why they did not arrive for our appointment, no-one could give an explanation. I then proceeded to

inform “Sharon” that I would not be able to have this exchange take place until January. Two messages were left by her while I was out taking care of business, the second being more than intimidating, stating that I had to “call them and arrange installation this week, as they were not going to be in Richmond in January.” Can you imagine how I reacted to that? Further, on Oct. 18, I received a letter from BC Hydro dated Oct. 8 stating that over the next few weeks, Corix was going to be in my neighbourhood, installing smart meters. A number of “expectations” were listed in this letter, including, “Installers will knock on your door before starting any work” — every person I have spoken to has said that no-one came to their door to inform them of the installation taking place. I have a number of concerns regarding this program, not the least of which is the fact that I am not being given a choice in the matter. I am also very concerned

about possible health hazards — proper, in-depth studies have not been made to determine the safety and hazards to our health in this matter. There are also all the stories coming to light about property damage from these meters — we all know the installers are NOT electricians, but “trained only to change meters.” Who’s to say they are trained properly and/or changing out the meters properly, or, in the case of an older home like mine, that the wiring is even up to code and therefore Hydro/ Corix are creating a fire hazard just by the exchange? At this point in time, I have a notice on my front door not to exchange the meter without an appointment. If any of my equipment is damaged, I hereby serve notice to all parties involved (BC Hydro, Corix, the City of Richmond) that I will consult legal counsel as to my right for compensation for damages/costs incurred by this program. Sue Wallis Richmond

INVESTMENTS

Exchange funds remain popular The popularity of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) has grown exponentially. Today, there are nearly 1,000 ETFs globally and the numbers continue to rise. In both bear and bull markets, investors have enjoyed the benefits of ETFs. They have many advantages: Diversification Many investors find it difficult to achieve proper diversification with individual equity positions. ETFs offer a solution because they provide exposure to a basket of securities tracking an index. A good example is the iShares S&P/TSX 60 Index (TSX: XIU). In that one ETF, investors gain exposure to the 60 largest and most liquid companies listed on the TSX. Trading flexibility Since ETFs trade on an exchange, their per-unit value is always known and they can be bought or sold at any point during market hours. This enables investors to use sophisticated trading strategies typically granted to equities, such as limit and stop orders as well as short sales. ETFs can be bought on margin, in any quantity and without any holding period restrictions. Investors can even apply options strategies to many ETFs. Sector rotation and asset allocation flexibility One can easily overweight sectors or rebalance portfo-

reasonable. The MERs for most ETFs range from 0.25 per cent to 0.75 per cent, whereas many actively managed mutual funds have MERs exceeding 2.75 per cent.

lios through ETFs. For instance, when the markets are volatile, investors can sell their equity ETFs in a few quick transactions and purchase fixed income ETFs. Consider investors who own the iShares S&P/TSX 60 Index. If they wished to increase their government bond exposure instead, they could shift into the iShares DEX All Government Bond Index (TSX: XGB) with more than 200 different government bonds. Likewise, investors wishing to overweight a specific sector of their portfolio can easily add a sector-specific ETF, such as a commodity ETF, to achieve their goal. Transparency ETFs are extremely transparent investment vehicles because they are required to disclose their holdings on a daily basis. This is vastly different from a mutual fund, which is only required to disclose its top 10 holdings once a month. Reduced fees ETFs are much more cost efficient than other diversified products such as mutual funds. Although ETFs come with Management Expense Ratios (MERs), they are very

’ Y S N N DA

Tax efficiency Due to the structure of ETFs, investors are not affected by the taxable actions of other shareholders. ETFs are also more passively managed and therefore subject to generally lower turnover. Selection and availability With nearly 1,000 ETFs on the market, investors have ample options to choose from. For instance, investors can purchase broad sector ETFs or very specific types such as emerging markets, commodity, currency and private equity. Varied management styles By their nature, traditional ETFs are passively managed. They are designed to track an index. As the popularity of ETFs has grown, so too have the offerings and there are now many actively managed ETFs available to investors. However, they should not be viewed as a route to carefree investing. Monitoring and discipline applies to purchasing ETFs just as it does with other investments.

Students try on United Nation hats

An event taking place this Saturday at Richmond City Hall is being aimed at fostering young people’s “awareness of political and social science.” The BC Model UN Conference (BCMUN) will attract dozens of bright young local minds who will act as delegates of countries and will discuss issues of major concern around the world. The nature of the conference is to run a simulation of the real United Nations and encourage participating delegates to act as real country representatives. There will be opening and closing ceremonies and during committee sessions, delegates can enter caucuses to debate on specific topics,

stating their beliefs from the podium, as well as coming up possible resolutions, which are viable to the current situation. “This conference will focus on the topic of the rising Arab Spring, specifically Syria,” the conference’s “secretary general,” RunTao Gong told the News in an email. “Most of the delegates are going to be from Richmond. There are a few from Vancouver … they are all high school students. “My intent of this conference was to create a MUN (model United Nations) which will accommodate delegates from the Richmond community. The conference will be held at Richmond City Hall on Saturday, Oct. 22.

Coffee company workers’ eyes opened after moving

WARD PERRIN/PNG

Salt Spring Coffee president and CEO Mickey McLeod (foreground) with HR director David Norget (left) and director of coffee Banks Thomas (right).

BY JENNY LEE Postmedia News

Mickey McLeod’s little coffee-roasting café was named for its location, the artisan community of Saltspring Island. So when McLeod lost a rezoning bid and moved his growing business to the flat, industrial parks of mainland Richmond, he faced an additional challenge: managing culture shock for his employees. “(Urban Richmond) definitely was a culture shock,” said Salt Spring Coffee humanresources director David Norget, comparing daily life in the thriving city of 200,000 with life on artsy Saltspring, population 10,000. “The (Richmond) houses are very ornate. They are bigger. It’s not funky.” Salt Spring Coffee, an organic, Fair Trade and sustainable-environmental-practices coffee roaster, worked hard at change management, going so far as to provide a staff house for commuting employees.

McLeod told employees of the move some four months in advance, despite the risk of people quitting and leaving the company short-staffed. “Yes, it was a scary thing,” said Norget, “But it seemed like the right thing to do.” Norget kept communication open, giving time off for job interviews and asking for help with transitions. Some people ended up working part-time at Salt Spring Coffee and part-time in their new jobs for a while. “In some cases, we hired in Vancouver and brought people over here to stay while we were still in transition,” he said. In the end, just 10 of the company’s 70 employees left and were replaced in Richmond. Fifteen employees, ranging from a production supervisor to roasters and lineworkers, moved to the mainland. The 35 employees who already worked in the company’s Tsawwassen, Vancouver and Salt Spring cafés were unaffected. Eight people, mostly see House page 15

House: Sensible move how do we get to work?” Norget said. “If I’m taking the bus, how do I get there? Where do I stand? Do I have the right clothes with me? Toiletries?” Similarly, it was the little personal gestures that made all the difference. One longtime supervisor was anxious about the move, which coincided with a personal move from Saltspring Island to the Sunshine Coast. Getting to work now meant taking three ferries, staying two weeks in Vancouver, then getting a long weekend at home. “That’s incredible dedication,” Norget noted, but said that at first, for this man, even staying at the staff house was stressful. “A number of staff (took it upon themselves to) set up his bed and even turned down the covers,” said Norget, who now works two days a week from Saltspring and two days a week in Richmond. “I don’t know how that came about.”

Continued from page 13 senior management, McLeod and Norget included, chose to commute. They learned some surprising lessons. Locating a staff house in Richmond, near their new 18,500-square-foot roasting facility, offices and education centre, seemed a sensible move. But geographic proximity to work turned out to be less important than a familiar neighbourhood feel. So the company rented a four-bedroom near their Vancouver coffee house. The funky east Vancouver neighbourhood, boasting fashion designers, cafés and bike shops, was much more similar to home, but still close enough to Richmond to cycle to work. Most weeks, at least five staff stay at the house. While the big changes were a shock, the accumulation of little changes turned out to be even more stressful. “It’s the little things, like

Design

The Charger’s fiveyear-old exterior has been completely redone, keeping the general profile and tough attitude while trading the puffed-up bodywork for svelte lines and smooth curves. There’s a hint of the popular ‘90s Dodge Intrepid in the curve of the rear deck, and a more sculpted and purposeful look to the new hood. One thing you can’t miss is the new front grille, which shoots out aggressively from between the headlamps similar to a Ram pickup truck. The look has been expertly translated to the sedan, enabling it to stand out from the crowd in nearly any setting. The interior is just a huge step up, with a simple and effective layout that is both inviting and functional. The Charger isn’t as fancy as some of its competitors, and it doesn’t want to be. That’s a vast improvement over last year’s model, which simply couldn’t meet today’s stansee Class page 18

same time. If this friendlier approach holds true, the American automaker will benefit considerably from the completely different and long overdue perspective brought by its Italian counterpart. And if the 2011 Dodge Charger is a hint of what’s to come, we’re about to see some of the best Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep products ever produced.

offered the size and space necessary to serve as a practical family sedan. On the other hand, the Charger’s interior quality was two decades out of date with mediocre construction and cheap plastics throughout the cabin. As a result, the Charger was great to look at and useful to own, but far from satisfying when it came to actually sitting in the car. With this in mind, can you guess where the biggest improvements have been made in the 2011 Charger? Riding on the same LX platform as the original, the redesigned Charger has experienced some major upgrades both outside and — more importantly — inside. The restyled Charger is fresh and original, with an interior that’s first class. That’s saying a lot for an automaker that has been heavily criticized over the past decade, and it suggests that the Fiat influence has been far more beneficial toward Chrysler than was the Mercedes-Benz experiment. Of course, in many ways that just makes sense. The old Chrysler was stuck in its ways, building big, imposing vehicles with bigger engines and what it really needed was a dose of friendliness — not something for which MercedesBenz is known. Fiat, in contrast, builds wonderfully fun-loving vehicles such as the 500 subcompact, bringing with it an attitude that is both carefree and sensible at the

Continued from page 16 dards. Best of all, the cabin has a much higher quality feel, with soft-touch materials and thoughtful aluminum trim. Most people would have been happy if the plastic was less overt, and Dodge has gone well above and beyond those minimum expectations. Power comes from a 3.6L V6 with 292-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, a 5.7L V8 with 370-hp and 395 lb-ft of torque, or the upcoming SRT8’s 6.4L V8, which generates a staggering 470-hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The base engine will be more than enough for most drivers, propelling the sedan with plenty of power and torque. For now, all engines come with a five-speed automatic that’s fairly mundane. However, a new, eightspeed automatic is on the

way for the 2012 model year, delivering smoother shifts and improved fuel economy. All-wheel drive is available for the otherwise rear-wheel-drive Charger, but to get it you have to opt for the upmarket R/T model at a price of $39,995. It would be nice to see Dodge offer a less-expensive AWD trim level. Mid-size family sedans have gotten increasingly sporty over the years. The Charger raises the average with solid handling that blends oldschool muscle-car fun with modern driving characteristics. The steering is quick and predictable, though not as sharp as it could be.

Perks: Dodge shows fresh exterior, interior Continued from page 18 trunk lid that opens almost vertically, making it easy to get stuff in and out. The only downside is that the lid could be difficult for shorter people to grab — a two-stage trunklid would be the best of both worlds.

Features

The Charger starts at $29,995 and is available in six trims (SE, SXT, SXT Plus, R/T, R/T Road/ Track, and R/T AWD), with the fire-breathing SRT8 model soon to arrive. Standard equipment on the base SE includes ABS, electronic stability control, traction control, cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, LED taillamps, UConnectTouch media centre, Keyless Enter-N-Go, power-adjustable driver’s seat, and front/side/knee/side-curtain airbags. Additional features, available as options or standard on higher trims, include Bluetooth, Xenon headlamps, fog lamps, heated seats, remote starter, adaptive cruise control, GPS navigation, sunroof, backup camera and a premium sound system. Fuel efficiency for the base 3.6L V6 is rated at 11.7L/100km in the city and 7.3L/100km on the highway.

Competitors Buick Regal: Starting at $29,940, the Regal comes with a 2.4L inline-four producing 182hp and 172 lb-ft of torque, or a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four tuned for 220hp and 260 lb-ft of torque or 270-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The Regal is a stunning sedan that looks and feels great. It plays a similar role to the Charger in reviving the Buick brand. However, a V6 option would be nice to calm down the front-wheel drive sedan.

The Charger’s main competitors are the Buick Regal, the Ford Taurus and the Volkswagen CC.

Ford Taurus: The $27,999 Taurus features an impressive 3.5L V6 with 263-hp and 249 lb-ft of torque, or a turbocharged version with 365-hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. It’s available with either front- or all-wheel drive. Large and in charge, the Taurus is an imposing vehicle that lacks the Charger’s sporty driving characteristics, but rivals it for practicality. Volkswagen CC: At a price of $33,375, the CC (formerly the Passat CC) comes with a turbocharged 2.0L inlinefour with 200-hp and 207 lb-ft of torque, or a 3.6L V6 with 280-hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, along with your choice of a six-speed manual or automatic, and all-wheel drive is optional. CC stands for “Comfort Coupe” and the beautifully designed Volkswagen looks the part with its smooth lines and coupeinspired shape.

No gift in the Will for this tenant.

Escape to Haida Gwaii

The Supreme Court of Canada recently clarified the legal remedy of Unjust Enrichment in Kerr v. Baranow, a matrimonial case. The analysis also applies in Estate cases. In B.C., in the case of Brennan v. Gardy Estate, the Plaintiff tenant of the deceased, claimed in unjust enrichment, as he was disinherited in the deceased landlord’s Will. The Court found that the Plaintiff provided the deceased with services but the deceased also gave the Plaintiff gifts, including some refunds of rent. The Court referred to Kerr v. Baranow in its judgment, and held that the Plaintiff’s intent in providing the services was not consistent with an expectation of a bequest (the Court called it a “donative” intent).

We’ve got battery packs on the side, solar panels in the tree and a wind generator on the top of the tree. Q: No TV, I take it. A: That’s one of the things we’re not allowed to have because we’re here to show people the culture. They request that we don’t have any electronics. The only thing we do have is a radio to contact town. Q: So you don’t leave the village at all during your stay? A: I’m at this site for a whole month. I don’t leave.

Some days it can get quite hectic, or we might not see anybody. It’s very weather dependent. Q: How do you entertain yourself on those slow days? A: Lots of reading. And getting creative with my cooking. I’ve made curried chicken, apple rhubarb pie, some cream puffs . . . Our supply boat comes every two weeks, so we send a grocery order in and they come down with our propane, our gas and our bottled water. I love cream puffs. Whoever I work with, they absolutely love working with me. Q: What is that neat hat you’re wearing? A: It’s a red cedar bark hat. I made it last summer. It took me about three and a half weeks to make it.

If you think a lighthouse issues a bright beam, you should see David Dixon’s huge smile shining from the shore of Skedans, a ruined village in a remote part of Haida Gwaii in B.C. Dixon, 45, usually lives in New Westminster and works for a catering company, but last summer he transformed into a Haida Watchman — spending three months living with only basic amenities and welcoming visitors to heritage sites. Question: Tell me about the Watchman Program. Answer: In the ‘80s, some tourists came to this village and they took an artifact and put it on their boat. That’s why this program was started, to protect these places, so that wouldn’t happen ever again.

May 12, 2008 began as it did most days for 23-year-old Jolly Liao, in the small town of Han Wang in Sichuan, China. After taking care of her 10-month-old daughter, which she nicknamed Chong (little caterpillar), Liao was getting ready to head to her dance studio, while her mother-in-law cared for her girl. That afternoon a deadly magnitude eight earthquake hit and shattered her life forever. Wednesday, the News sat down with Liao and her interpreter, Mandy Wang, to hear of her harrowing experience. “It was all so sudden,” she said. “It started with a little shaking and then it was like the end of the world.” The apartment building she lived in collapsed and both legs were pinned under a huge piece of concrete that fell from the ceiling. Her mother-in-law was holding Chong when the earthquake hit and Liao

Out of the 46 residents in the building at the time, Liao was the only survivor. “I lost hope that my legs could be saved and when I arrived at the tent-hospital the doctors told me I was going to lose my legs,” said Liao. The professional dancer told the doctors to go ahead. “I signed the form giving

the doctors the authority to cut off my legs,” she said. “All I could think of at the time was that I had lost my precious daughter.” “When my husband came to the hospital and found out our daughter died, he left me,” said Liao. Despite everything she lost, Liao encouraged other patients in the hospital with her optimistic outlook and engaging smile. “There were more than 10,000 and hardly any beds so many of us slept on the ground,” she said. “Eventually, I was moved to a hospital in a larger city, a hospital where two-thirds were children … it was extremely hard.” For months, she mourned the daughter she lost. On June 1, China’s national Children’s Day, the hospital hosted a fete. Liao said up to that point she had never cried publicly — that day she openly sobbed. “I watched the children’s performances and saw their happiness and I kept sobbing,” she said. “I wanted to get up on stage and sing my daughter’s favourite song, Planting the Sun, as a dedication to her.” That day was the day Liao decided to start exercising her body. Although, she had no prosthetics, volunteers in

the hospital encouraged her get back to what she loved — dancing. She trained herself, a few minutes at a time, to dance on her stumps. One day, one of the hospital volunteers, who was involved in the Miss World 2008 pageant, asked her if she wanted to attend the ceremony. “I was invited as a special guest to dance during the show,” she said, smiling shyly. Liao trained for more than three hours a day through excruciating pain. On July 14, the world watched on TV as a petite double amputee gracefully danced on a large drum in front of hundreds of thousands in the audience. “When the MC introduced me, I was trembling,” she said. “I was afraid that I would freak out the audience.” Instead, the determined young lady received a standing ovation. “I knew then that I had to inspire other amputees and other young people who are suicidal and tell them there is hope and that life is precious,” Liao said. Through her performances dancing on a drum using the bare stumps of her knees, Liao had raised funds to rebuild her hometown, which was destroyed during the earthquake. She has been honoured with more than 10 national awards for her fundraising efforts, and was recognized by the Chinese government as the most successful Woman in China in 2009. In 2009, she also visited Vancouver and Calgary to raise awareness about the victims in Sichuan and to thank Canadians for their support. Now, she is back in B.C as a guest of the CIEAF (Canadian International Education Assistance Foundation) for a North American speaking tour, beginning in Richmond. “Jolly is here to show other young people not to give up and to be inspired by her story,” said Angela Chow, who is with CIEAF. Liao has traveled more than two days from her home in Sichuan, to share her inspiring story of hope and recovery to Richmondites at a number of local schools the Colours of Dance Academy and the Caring Place. On Mon., Oct. 24 at City Hall she’ll speak to the city’s emergency preparation program. For more information, call 778-709-0721 or visit www.cieaf.com.

Unproductive weekend at least had a silver lining for rugby club

locals didn’t give up. After about 20 minutes, with good hard running in the centers, they were rewarded with their first score from Mike Marquardt. Offensively Richmond ran and kicked well for most of the game, only a couple of ill-timed runs led to problems from Seattle, which went on to post a 44-25 victory. So where is the silver lining? The bright side is that the squad Richmond fielded had only seven players from last year’s B.C. finalist team. The rest were injured, had work commitments or were attending the World Cup in New Zealand. The roster will be at full strength for the second half of the season. This means a number of individuals stepped up from the second division team and held their own on the first division squad. The club is also pleased to announce it will once again be fielding a team at the third division level after an 18-month hiatus. A number of exhibition games have been lined up for the first half of the season. Those interested in playing and avoiding training can contact Jon Malchy at jmalchy@hotmail.com.

The rugby woes continued for Richmond RFC, but the clouds hanging over the club have a silver lining. A beautiful weekend on home grounds turned out to be a frustrating one for the club. The second division squad found itself trailing throughout its match until the late stages of the second half when it was able to tie the score at 10-10. The hosts had opportunities throughout the game but continuity between backs and forwards was a little off and they were unable to capitalize on their good play. The first division also had its share of problems, the main one again being the fact that they were constantly having to claw back from a deficit against first place Seattle. This problem was exacerbated by the fact that they also had to deal with the American squad’s hard running forwards, the result being many missed tackles. Seattle’s veteran fly-half also proved problematic as he helped the backs probe past the gain line with play calling and kicking. In typical Richmond fashion however, the

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of mysteries, depths,secrets and hidden forces begins Sunday. Your subconscious will burst to the surface, to heighten both your intuition and your intimate desires. If you’re undisciplined, you could enter an extramarital affair. Don’t confuse love and lust. This month ahead holds a major change and/or opportunity for you, in lifestyle and finances. These will demand commitment; without it, success will dissolve. Tackle chores early Sunday. Crucial relationships fill the work week: be nimble, co-operative. Big success possible Friday. Love, law, learning Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: A month of work and drudgeryends;amonthoffreshhorizons,opportunities, new sights and exciting relationships begins. You might relocate; if so, go big and far – and not before Nov. 10. Sunday’s romantic, creative. OK, I lied: some work and drudgery remains, Monday/Tuesday. Tackle it Tuesday for best results. Crucial relationships spark Wednesday/Thursday – all’s good, but temper or domestic tension could interfere Thursday eve to Friday dawn. After this, Friday is packed with success potentials in intimacy, investments, finances, health – Saturday, too, but milder. Gemini May 21-June 20: A month of work, drudgery, some boredom, and caring for dependents starts now (Sunday). Until Nov. 10, these duties can interfere with your wanderlust, or with your need to read, learn and talk. (The wanderlust, et al, is likely to win.) Be home, rest Sunday. Romance lures Monday/ Tuesday, but even Don Juan would have difficulty with this one: go slow. That work begins in earnest Wednesday/Thursday – but successfully, other than a problem driving or communicating (especially late Thursday). New people, new horizons and opportunities excite you Friday/Saturday – chase them!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Sunday starts a month of pleasure, beauty, creativity, romance, self-expression and love for children. You’ll ride a winning streak – a bigger one than usual, as social delights, popularity and wish fulfilment are added to the brew. Major stuff could happen! A co-worker romance is highlighted. Sunday’s for communications, travel and casual acquaintances. Rest Monday/Tuesday, make sure your home/business are secure/grounded, and get your beauty sleep. Wednesday/Thursday spark that romance, pleasure, creativity, et al. Tackle chores – and social/romantic joys – Friday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead feature domestic concerns, real estate, security, business territory, and the foundations or “what you stand on” in any area. (E.g., your education is – usually – the foundation of your career.) You might decide to abandon stale, useless projects or relationships, and to “found” new ones. (This will lead to success, especially in ambitious areas.) Chase money Sunday. News, details, errands, travel and casual friends fill Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings th ose domestic, foundational concerns. Don’t be overbearing (applies to mid-November). Romance winks Friday/ Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Sunday kicks off a month of communications, details, paperwork, travel and errands, news, casual acquaintances and siblings. This year these things (emails, calls, trips, news, etc.) can trigger, or entwine with, some major projects in the same zones, but on a “larger stage.” E.g., communication becomes publishing, details become profound ideas or higher learning, trips expand into international travel, casual friendship grows to love, etc. Wednesday to Friday brings clues – and opportunities. You might give up one life philosophy, and embrace another, this week to next June.

Oct. 23 - 29, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead raise the money stakes. As is usual for late October and November, you’re favoured to chase money, seek a pay raise, enhance your earnings, buy and sell items, and deal with possessions. But this year an added, deeper – and very lucky – level enters, so that possessions become investments, the search for added income could lead to a lucrative business, the attempt to gain new clients could produce a partnership, etc. One flaw: until Nov.10, a partner or someone you really like socially could interfere with, even fight this, causing you to make a hard choice. Tuesday to Saturday highlights all this. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your hopes, sociability and popularity rise Sunday – the very day that kicks off a month of increased energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness. Use this month to the fullest, start important projects, seek favours – seize the day. A slowdown will begin November 23, so don’t waste these intervening weeks. Use Monday/Tuesday to rest, plan, to finish up chores so they don’t interfere with the future. Then charge forth Wednesday to Saturday. Some days bosses will be critical; other days (Saturday) co-operative. Sense their mood, then act accordingly. Big opportunities await! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Slow down. Sunday starts a month of quietude, rest, sweet solitude and contemplation. Use these weeks to plan your future, to handle overdue tasks, to fulfill outstanding obligations, to interact with government and solve tax issues, to deal with charities, to be spiritual and reconnect with the living centre of this world. If you do some of these things, you’ll emerge refreshed and rejuvenated by late November. This influence begins in earnest Wednesday/Thursday. A wish is denied Monday, but might come true, quietly, Tuesday. Your energy, luck rise Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Sunday begins a month of happiness. popularity, social delights, flirtations, entertainment and wish fulfilment. You are undergoing the deepest change of your life, from 2008 to 2023. The month ahead brings you many clues about this change, its purpose and intended result. Biggest clue: the change will bring about a revolution and grand renewal in everything listed in the first sentence. These clues will be “lit up” by events, joy Wednesday/ Thursday; by “quiet knowing” Friday/Saturday. Until Nov. 10, avoid working secretly toward your goals: it undercuts this fine process. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Sunday brings a month of career and status ambitions, prestige relations, dealings with bosses, parents and authorities. You’ll be under pressure, but you’ll also have excellent opportunities to impress higher-ups, especially this Wednesday to Friday. You might be pulled between two extremes: ambition and security, even between ambition and the desire to quit. Truth is, the desire to quit is luckier than ambition this year (to June 2012). Trying to reconcile these opposites can make you quick-tempered until Nov. 10. Step softly – luck is high. Joy, hope, Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The weeks ahead bring relief in the form of gentle understanding, a mellow mood, wisdom and a gentle, compassionate love. You might travel afar, deal with foreign-born people, attend college, publish, meet a “teacher,” or otherwise expand your views. Cultural rituals arise – e.g., weddings, bat mitzvahs. Some of you will decide to wed. These themes are highlighted Wednesday/ Thursday, and an event connected to them can come Friday – with an exhilarating “uplift!” (Be ambitious Friday/Saturday; this will cause the best to happen.) Earlier, embrace a challenging person Sunday. timstephens@shaw.ca
