Clinic: Early baby scans a ‘Chinese’ thing Councillor Chak Au says unwanted Asian traditions are seeping into Richmond BY ALAN CAMPBELL
An ultrasound clinic in Richmond has come under fire for offering fetal scans weeks ahead of the prescribed industry norm. A CBC documentary exposed UC Baby for proposing to an undercover reporter to carry out a 3D ultrasound scan 17 weeks into the pregnancy, instead of the commonly practiced 20 weeks. After 20 weeks, it’s generally considered too late for an elective abortion of the fetus. The documentary suggested that performing ultrasounds early was being offered in predominantly Chinese and IndoCanadian communities where the practice of sex selection is more common. If the fetus is discovered to be female, the woman then has the opportunity to terminate the pregnancy, especially if she already has female children at home. In the documentary, a Chinese ultrasound technician at UC Baby (on Westminster Highway at Minoru Boulevard) offered to perform the early ultrasound on the reporter, who had a hidden camera, after the woman said she
would be distraught if she was having another girl. The technician, who came from China a year ago to work in the Richmond clinic

UC Baby, a Richmond ultrasound clinic, was accused of offering fetal scans earlier than the guidelines.
and is a UC Baby franchisee, then suggested to the reporter that if the scan shows the fetus to be a girl, she should “see family doctor.” UC Baby’s Richmond manager, Rose Kalynchuk, and president founder, Tina Ureten, both classed the technician’s offer and suggestion as “mistakes,” and blamed the fact she’s from a culture that encourages abortion. The company said it has since clamped down on the practice of early scans, but Richmond city councillor Chak Au — an immigrant from China in 1988 and considered a “bridge” between local Chinese and Canadian cultures — says many Asians still prefer to have boys as opposed to girls. “I’m not surprised (early scans) are being offered in our community,” said Au, a Vancouver Coastal Health family therapist. “Although things are starting to change, there is still a large number of people who prefer to have a male child. “There’s a cultural history that, if you get a male child, you have another pair of hands for production. In China, men are supposed to work and women are supposed to stay at home.” see UC Baby page 4

World Peace shoots hoops at Palmer Students and graduates of RC Palmer secondary had to see it to believe it when Los Angeles Lakers star Meta World Peace turned up at the school gym last week for a workout. The 6-foot-7 small forward is in Vancouver this month for a movie shoot and is friends with Palmer senior boys basketball coach Paul Eberhardt and his brother Doug. When World Peace was looking for a gym, the Eberhardts were happy to help out. They put him through a workout then he played one-on-one with former Palmer stars Vijay Dhillon and Mike Zayas. Both were members of the 2011 championship team. see Social media page 3

Farmers expect bumper crop Cloudy, wet weather leaves strawberries in ‘vigorous condition’
BY RANDY SHORE The Vancouver Sun
Strawberries are a sure sign that summer is coming, but you have probably noticed, it is coming slowly. Rich, red local strawberries are turning up on store shelves and at farm gate markets, but on most farms there isn’t enough ripe fruit in the fields to allow people to pick their own. One exception is Bill and Sandra Zylmans’ W & A Farms, which will open for U-pick berries this weekend. “It’s a sure sign that summer is here and picking strawberries is a great tradition for Father’s Day,” Zylmans said. “There’s real excitement when the strawberries are ready because they are the first fruit of the year.” The rain clouds that have delayed the ripening of local strawberries have a silver lining. The absence of extreme heat and dry conditions has left the plants in a “vigorous condition” and may extend the picking season to a full four weeks, Zylmans said. Early season and everbearing varieties that are available this week tend to be red and firm. Look for Puget Reliance and the large fruit of Tillamook. Mid-season varieties such as Totem and Hood are the superjuicy, red-to-the-core strawberries that imprint themselves perma-

Bill Zylmans shows off the fresh local stawberries at W&A farms off Westminster Highway. The rain has left the plants in good condition, possibly extending picking season a full four weeks. nently in your memory. “Those are the deep red juicy berries that you’ll drool all over your shirt,” Zylmans said. The strawberries that ripen through June are perfect for eating. In July, the sugar content of the berries peaks, making them perfect for jams and preserves. Up the Fraser Valley in Langley and Abbotsford, the picking season
is at least a week behind normal. Langley’s Krause Berry Farms & Estate Winery plans to open for Upick customers around June 22. It’s impossible to predict the exact opening date for most farms, so the farmers urge customers to call ahead to ensure the fields are open. Heavy rains will also close most fields. “We are picking now for
wholesaling, but we don’t have enough yet for U-pick,” said berry farmer Alf Krause. “It’s just been too cold for the last two weeks.” While cool weather is not conducive to growing the imported golf-ball sized berries that populate grocery store shelves through the winter, local growers don’t seem concerned. see Ripeness page 5
Social media: Few ‘Palmer guys’ turned into a hundred PHOTO SUBMITTED
Meta World Peace turned up at the RC Palmer secondary school gym for a workout. About 100 kids showed up after finding out about his appearance through social media.
Continued from page 1 “I had a few of my Palmer guys there for rebounding and to meet him, but with social media by the time we were done the workout there was about 100 people there,” laughed Eberhardt. World Peace, played 12 seasons in the NBA as Ron Artest before legally changing his name last September. During his stay in Vancouver, he has gone out of his way to help out charity organizations, visiting a youth centre in Surrey and playing soccer in the Downtown Eastside. He is expected to workout with the Eberhardts several more times.

News UC Baby: ‘Mistakes’ made Continued from page 1 Also, there’s the tradition that only males will get a share of the family inheritance, Au added. “So, the more males you have in the family, the more chance you will have of getting some inheritance. “This is changing, but the mindset is still there.” As for blaming the technician’s “mistakes” on the fact she came from China a year ago, Au said, “We’re in Canada and no one should be approving of that kind of practice or supporting it. “I don’t think there are any laws against this, but maybe there should be, this is Canada after all.” CBC’s investigation team visited nearly two — Coun. dozen so-called “entertainment ultrasound” businesses in three Canadian cities. Of the 22 centres visited, 15, including UC Baby in Richmond, agreed to book an appointment for an ultrasound that would give a couple the sex of the fetus before 20 weeks of pregnancy. Five of them agreed to perform tests as early as 14 weeks into pregnancy. The investigation follows two recent studies that indicate the practice of aborting females in favour of males, common in countries such as India and China, has now spread to those same cultural communities in Canada. A study released in April in the Canadian Medical Association Journal confirmed that the male-to-female ratio for third-born children to mothers born in India and living in Ontario is higher than the natural rate.

president both told the News the technician in question has been warned about her conduct, and all employees and managers across the company’s 28 Canada-wide locations have been reminded of the “strict guidelines” on offering scans before 20 weeks. “Everyone is going for abortion in China and our president has had a serious chat with the Chinese technician,” said Kalynchuk. “She knows the rules now. But she is an experienced technician. She realizes she made a mistake, 20 weeks is our policy.” The technician’s suggestion to go “see doctor” if the fetus is a girl was “also a mistake; it’s kind of a Chinese culture thing. It was unfortunate,” added Kalynchuk. “She knows now that she Chak Au can’t talk like that, she can’t recommend those kind of things.” Kalynchuk also noted, “The (reporter) spent 15 minutes pushing her to get the answers she wanted, you don’t see that in the video.” Ureten told the News that a newsletter went out to everyone in the organization, setting out new employee standards. “Sadly, some of our employees were not following the rules,” she said. “Everyone has a different opinion on the subject; it depends on where you’re coming from. She’s from China and the government there is encouraging people have abortions. I was sorry to see she was keeping those Chinese cultures over here.” Ureten said there were already “strict standards on our operations guide; perhaps (the technician) missed that part and was just trying to make the client happy.”

Woman missing after family visit Richmond RCMP are asking for the public’s help in finding a missing Chinese woman, last seen in Richmond on June 7. Lianjie Guo, a Chinese national, was visiting family in Canada with her husband and was supposed to return to China on June 7. Concerned family members reported her missing on June 8, as it was unusual behaviour for Guo. Guo is a 47-year-old Asian female, approximately 5’4” tall, weighs approximately 120 lbs, has short black spiky hair. She was last seen wearing a blue jacket with a “roses” pattern and a fur collar, red blouse, brown belt, blue jeans and was carrying a red handbag. Guo has no knowledge of the Lower Mainland area and little or no knowledge of the English language, speaking only Cantonese. Richmond RCMP are asking for any information that could help in finding Guo and reuniting her with her family.
ripe and never achieve the through-and-through ripeness and flavour of a local berry, said Zylmans. When the so-called Junebearing varieties are exhausted early in July, late everbearing strawberries will begin to ripen and provide fruit right through September, if the weather is good. If you pick your berries on a hot day, get them
home and either eat or process them the same day, Sandra Zylmans advised. “On a cool day like we’ve been having they will last two or three days,” she said. Zylmans doesn’t wash her strawberries unless they are obviously dusty and even then, just a rinse. For more stories, go to www.vancouversun.com.

Another way to consider dividends
In your ﬁnancial planning (including tax planning), you should be aware that many people, including boomers and retired persons, seem to lately attach more importance to dividend paying stocks as a type of investment. With the right stocks, the dividends provide a good source of income in addition to pensions. Most Canadian stocks pay dividends that receive the dividend tax credit. In calculating the tax due from dividend income, there is a gross up of the actual dividend (by 38% in 2012), followed by the dividend tax credit, which for 2012 is roughly 16%. In the tax calculation, however, understand that the gross up of dividend income may put you in a higher tax bracket, which may increase your tax liability, and it may also increase your income to a level that activates the clawback of your OAS beneﬁts (if you have passed age 65 and are collecting OAS).

Festival to celebrate diversity
The 2012 Steveston Salmon Festival will mark the country’s 145th birthday with a community get-together from sunrise to sunset. The festival is organized by volunteers to honour Canada Day and the diverse culture of the Richmond community. This year the festival will include all the favourite attractions such as the pancake breakfast, Canada Day parade and the famous salmon bake, which last year served over 2,300 plates of fresh wild sockeye salmon cooked over open alder wood fire pits. It is a fun-filled day of live entertainment, complete with dance and musical acts, trade and craft shows, and many activities for children. Other features include the Japanese cultural show, food fair and a youth rock fest featuring local bands. The day begins at 6:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast. The Children’s Bike Parade takes off at 9:30 a.m., the Kajaks Salmon Run at 9:50 a.m., then the big Canada Day Parade at 10 a.m. The festival is also bringing back mechanical amusement rides after a threeyear absence, plus a selection of inflatables. Since July 1 falls on a weekend this year, the carnival rides will be open both days — Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1 — from noon to 5 p.m. Unlimited ride wrist bands are on sale in advance starting June 1 at the Steveston Community Centre for $20 per day.
Two boys watch the Canada Day Parade at last year’s festival. Juno Award winning musician Bill Bourne will lead the main stage entertainers this year. Also featured is Richmondbased Stone Poets, rising star Joshua Hyslop and Freshh, a hip-hop dance crew who are hot off their appearance on “Canada’s Got Talent”. For complete details including a schedule of events, or to find out how you can volunteer, visit the Steveston Salmon Festival website at www.stevestonsalmonfest.ca.

Request stop, TransLink
rom the outside, there appears to be no operational justification for TransLink to cancel its current Taxi Saver program. The program allows disabled and eligible seniors to purchase books of taxi coupons at a 50 per cent discount, with TransLink picking up the rest of the cost. The taxi rides offer a certain alternative to HandyDart bookings that are not always perfect in terms of timing. Moreover, the taxi rides are cheaper for TransLink than the equivalent HandyDart cost — even without the client’s 50 per cent contribution. Driving clients to a system that costs the taxpayer more while offering less satisfaction to some users only makes sense in a world created by Kafka and run by bureaucrats. In a perfect world, the quasi-independent authority would revisit the decision, admitting there are other ways to limit the minimal cheating that takes place and that its overzealous action had thrown its aged and infirm clients under the bus. Of course, it might not be able to do that if, as some clients suspect, the profitability of HandyDart is the real issue. In 2009, TransLink contracted out the operation of its HandyDart service to a privately owned U.S. transportation company, MVT. If, as part of that deal, a certain level of profitability was promised, TransLink should bite the bullet and fess up that its hands are tied. If that is not the case, there is no reason not to reverse a decision that was perhaps (let’s be generous here) just taken in haste.

Upgrade RCMP contract Open letter to MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay, I am disturbed by the way RCMP contract agreements are being forced onto the municipalities by negotiators. RCMP negotiators appear to wish to enter into a business contract signed in good faith by both parties, yet at the same time to present a contract with undisclosed terms and conditions, including runaway no-cap increases. A blank cheque in effect, is expected to be signed by the end of June for a term of 20 years. I strongly object to the difficulty and mistrust this uncertainty brings to the budget planning process for the municipality of Richmond. The RCMP men and women officers, the majority of whom seem to be decent and able individuals, deserve much respect. They give us a great deal of security and peace of mind. However, the ham-fisted and archaic way this contract is presented calls into question RCMP leadership in Canadian communities as role models for ethical and moral behaviour. Showing a gun-to-the-head disregard for the public, which pays RCMP salaries, and to whom the organization is committed to serve, brings the RCMP image into disrepute. This letter is a request that the RCMP, whose review is presently being undertaken, urgently rescind and rewrite outdated contracts affecting the provinces and municipalities, and bring them more in line with modern business practices.

Cherish seconds spent with your father Tick… Tick… Tick… Each second ticks by, disappearing forever into history, never to be experienced again by anyone living on this side of Tralfamadore. Kids these days may be as unfamiliar with the “ticking” of a secondhand sweeping the face of a clock as they are unlikely to be aware of Kurt Vonnegut’s multi-dimension-inhabiting Tralfamadorians. Clocks rarely “tick” these days, and most electronic displays are set to wait on minutes — which is probably a good thing, as the up-and-coming generations live with 60 times fewer reminders of the relentless passage of time. Nevertheless, those seconds are lurking in the background, ticking us into minutes that build into hours, into days, into weeks, into years, into decades, and for those few among us fortunate enough, into a whole century — but there, at that magnitude, it certainly ends. Time is a big deal to us humans, who have so much of it in comparison to the vast majority of species populating this planet. A few tortoises can be expected to outlast us, and some parrots — but even most plants (and that includes a lot of trees) don’t live as many years as we can reasonably expect for ourselves. We have a host of adages that express our need to keep track of time, to be

aware of it, to utilize it, to maximize its potential. A stitch in time saves nine. Time is of the essence. Time is money. After all, time waits for no man. If you don’t use it, you’re killing it. Perhaps that’s why time weighs heavy on the soul. And all through it, once they begin ticking for each of us, those seconds keep pushing us along the continuum of our existence towards one ending or another. And if we are long-lived life-forms on this planet, our segment of the overall scale of time is orders of magnitude smaller than miniscule. But before you start obsessing too deeply on our interminable movement through our tiny space-time habitat and start looking for a bridge to launch you past time and space, consider what the seconds leave behind as they march themselves off into oblivion. We can never get those seconds back… but we never really lose them, either. Each of those seconds has the potential to become a memory.
Collectively, they turn into experience. And with luck and practice, we can shape them into wisdom. I never have enough time on my hands, but lately, I’ve had a lot of it on my mind. With Father’s Day approaching, I’m mindful of the passage of time, and of the memories, the experience, and the wisdom that my dad has shared and continues to share with me — from his vast pool of more than 97 years worth of seconds that have ticked through his clock. My own, much smaller pool of ticked-by seconds has given me a wealth of memories and experiences with my dad that have enriched not only my life, but the lives of everyone with whom I occasionally have an opportunity to touch with his wisdom. Indeed, one of the wisest things I have gleaned from sharing all those nonrefundable seconds with my dad has been that wisdom doesn’t exist without sharing — sharing the seconds, the memories, the experiences. And happiness that comes from those shared seconds doesn’t exist without sharing beyond the seconds themselves. Share some of those precious seconds with your dad if and when you can. Those seconds are fleeting… but forever. Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance.

Similarly, Bhullar’s dad Avtar Bhullar used to be a prominent and respected wrestler. Both the Sandhu and Bhullar families are always in the forefront when it comes to helping the community. They are a pride of the South Asian community. Both Sandhu and Bhullar carry on the family tradition. As reporter Alan Campbell mentioned in his story, it is great to see these two stars get to grips with each other. In this context, Ampri must be commended for sponsoring champion wrestler Bhullar in his quest for gold medal at the London Summer Olympics. He has the entire community’s support and best wishes. Young people like Sandhu and Bhullar are a great credit to Richmond and their community. Balwant Sanghera Richmond

Fernando looked at me in silence for a long time but, even for a guy made of tempered steel, the addictive cocktail in “tobacco” was too strong. So much for the American war on drugs! American corporations, like ours, don’t like competition. Neither one of us knew he was already dying of cancer that day. It had spread too much to be treatable. Over the coming year, I watched with profound sadness as he deteriorated and finally died in pain, misery and regret. Fernando left a grieving wife without a husband, a son without a father, parents without financial support in their elder years and a cathedral full of sad people, like me, to whom he had been such a good friend. If the tobacco industry missed Fernando, they never mentioned it. Corporations don’t have feelings; but the CEOs of those corporations should thank the prophets of profit or whatever gods they pray to that it is a pen that gnarly old dudes like me reach for. Happy Father’s Day to Fernando and to all the fathers out there in Newsland who might find the strength to quit in their love for their kids, as I did. Set an example for your kids. Do it. Give those tobacco industry corporate fat cats what they deserve. Hit them where it hurts: Profits! Quit killing yourself to make them rich. Your kids need you, and so do we.

The Editor, Re: “Deadly numbers game,” Editorial, June 8. I’m going to have to stop reading The News! I was taking a quick break between agenda items, I sat down for a coffee and started reading on June 8. I got past the cover story on proactive democracy, the item on counselling, the piece about the outrageously inadequate, cost-of-business fine handed out to Kin Seafood Importing Corporation for trading in a $100,000 of nearly extinct species and the letter on seniors issues. All issues close to my heart. Well, the editorial did me in. I couldn’t help thinking of the friends who have seen “the light” the hard way, in particular my old buddy and mechanic, Fernando. Fernando was a large, physically impressive dude, not the kind you would want to cross on a dark, deserted street. On the way back from Victoria, Fernando stepped out onto the wind-and-rain-swept ferry deck for a smoke. I followed. “Fernando,” I said. “Don’t light that coffin nail. Throw the pack overboard. Quit now and I’ll tear up your IOU.” (I had helped him out with a four-figure cash flow problem. There was no IOU. You could take Fernando’s word to the bank.) “Are you crazy?” he asked, rhetorically. “Nope,” I said. “Look at it this way: If you die, who is gonna keep my old Chevy wagons running? It’ll cost me more than you owe me just to shop around. And that’s only if I don’t lose my temper.”

The Editor, Re: “Wrestler, CEO get to grips with each other,” News, June 13. I would like to commend the Richmond News for doing an excellent job in recognizing two outstanding young men. Both Amit Sandhu and Arjan Bhullar are great role models for our youth. Whereas Sandhu has won accolades in business, Bhullar has proven himself to be an exceptional wrestler. Both of them are always willing and eager to give back to the community. They got it from their families, which are very well known and respected not only in the South Asian community, but also in the community at large. I have known both of these families for a long time. Sandhu’s dad, Parmjit Sandhu, is a very modest, kind and generous businessman.

Pennies for your charity BY ALAN CAMPBELL
Travellers passing through YVR are being asked to dig deep into their wallets, purses and pockets in the name of charity. YVR is calling on passengers and the airport community to donate their pennies to help fund lunches for children in need this summer. “Many kids rely on school lunch programs for healthy food,” said Elizabeth Crudgington, executive director of Quest Food Exchange, a nonprofit organization that helps those in need access affordable, healthy food. “When schools are closed in the summer, providing lunch can be an extra burden for families that are already struggling financially.” From June 13 to 28, YVR will be collecting pennies to benefit Quest Food Exchange. With the money raised, food vouchers will be provided to families with children to shop in Quest’s three not-for-profit grocery markets. As little as $30 (or 3,000 pennies) can provide a month of lunches for a child. Travellers and the general public can donate their change at one of two coin collection kiosks, located at the international and domestic terminal food courts. The penny drive is an extension of the airport long-standing post-security coin ball program, through which travellers donate their change. “Especially now that the penny is being eliminated, we felt we could put all that change to good use in our community,” said
YVR passengers can donate their pennies to Quest Food Exchange. Anne Murray, YVR’s VP of community and environmental affairs. In addition to collecting travellers��� pennies, the airport is challenging its internal departments and Sea Island businesses to a friendly competition to see which group can collect the most pennies. The coins will be weighed, and winners declared, at a public weigh-in on June 28. YVR began its partnership with Quest in February 2011. To date, the Sea Island community has donated $120,000 in cash through sponsorship and fundraising initiatives and has donated more than $125,000 worth (or approximately 1,650kg) of food.

balance sheets, but stock prices aren’t reflecting it. Volatility can be unsettling but, if handled correctly, it can also be a friend. For long-term investors, market turbulence opens the door to opportunity. By concentrating on valuations, they can benefit from the downward impact of emotional selling and add to existing good quality positions on dips. For those who have been sitting on the sidelines, opportunities are plentiful to build new portfolios of solid, blue chip companies. The markets are likely to remain erratic over the near-term, so investors should consider incorporating defensiveness by buying some dividend-paying stocks. Consistent cash returns ease dependency on market price appreciation for returns and help reduce portfolio volatility. Sustaining regular dividends and having them grow are also important indicators of a company’s quality. When investing in volatile markets, dollar-cost averaging techniques are a good idea. Instead of purchasing in a single lump sum, investors ease into an acquisition by buying over a period of time. The concept works particularly well in volatile markets as it eliminates any concern of trying to time the markets and it reduces the cost base. When the market is up you receive fewer shares but when it’s down you get more. Panic selling can devastate a portfolio. Instead of being distracted by turbulence in the markets, investors should concentrate on their long-term goals with a well-defined investment strategy that includes rules to acquire at the right prices and rules to protect against losses. The investors with the discipline to stick with a plan are best equipped to achieve their investing goals.

Let life unfold naturally We all have dreams about what we want our life to look like and how our lives will be used while we are on this planet. But, if you really look back over your life, can you honestly say it has turned out the way you planned? For KEEP IT most of us, I would think not. Take a moment to look back over your life and recall all the major experiences that have happened. Were they all planned? I came from Australia to live in Canada for two years and began my life in Toronto. I never planned to move to British Columbia. But I’m here, simply because life unfolded and led me in this direction. I never planned to work in the field I work in. I never planned to be a widow, but I am. We forget life is living us and all we really need to do is to stop trying to force it into another direction. There’s a great quote from one of John Lennon’s songs, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” It’s interesting how life unfolds in ways we never anticipated and can be changed in a moment’s notice. Many of us ask, what am I to do with my life? Am I even in the driver’s seat? I’m not saying we don’t have a choice in the direction our lives take. We always have a choice, but have you ever noticed even when we do try to steer the ship in one direction, many
times life unfolds in another way you had not planned? The opportunity in those moments is to go with the flow of where life is taking you. Who knows? You may become pleasantly surprised when you let go and get out SIMPLE of the way of trying to make things happen. Instead, let the flow of life occur in a natural way on its own timeline. Letting go and going with the flow can cause fear in people because it takes them into the unknown. As human beings, we want the details. We get caught up in the story of “me” and “my life,” but our journey in life is bigger than our own personal story. Life situations are put in front of us so we can grow and discover who we are. Changing circumstances provide the opportunity for us to look within to reveal what we all came here to discover. The question is, do you go with the flow and let life guide you? Or, are you still trying to force it to happen, like fitting a square peg into a round hole? Pay attention and know there is more ease to life when you go with the flow, rather than resist it. Lorraine Wilson is a group facilitator, guest speaker and provides one-on-one mentoring for those who wish to live a mindful life. For more information, visit www.keepinglifesimple.org.

Passat adopts American look
13800 Smallwood Place, Richmond Auto Mall
ticular importance to Canadians, where VW expects that it will account for about 45 per cent of new Passat sales. The V6 is expected to out-sell the TDI in the U.S., but when you look at the fuel economy numbers and then drive the TDI, it’s easy to understand why Canadians love it. The Passat TDI differs from the Jetta TDI in that it comes with the extra-clean Ad-Blue exhaust emissions system. Service intervals are every 15,000 km and there’s a warning system that alerts the driver when its fluid level is getting low. The 2.5-litre and TDI versions of the new Passat come in Treadline, Treadline+, Comfortline and Highline trim levels. The V6 Passat only comes in Comfortline and Highline trim levels. My test TDI Passat was a Trendline+ edition that came without any options and a list price of $28,875.
BY DAVID CHAO, BOB MCHUGH Special to the News
The Passat has been transformed from bumper to bumper, and the transformation is remarkable. The completely redesigned Volkswagen Passat is bigger, a better value and has lost some of its German accent since coming to America. Now built in a new plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., it seems to have picked up a southern drawl and it’s still a mighty fine automobile. Yes, the “das auto” gang has gone mainstream U.S.A. and the new Passat competes head-on against the likes of Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata. In these volatile and changing financial times, if you want to compete with the big boys, it can be both cost-effective and safer to produce highvolume products in major markets. While the new Passat is bigger in almost every way, it retains upmarket premium qualities and technical delights that make a VW, well, a VW. A major one being its TDI Clean Diesel engine, which in the Passat an awardwinning turbocharged 2.0-litre that offers great fuel economy and produces an amazing 236 lbs.-ft of torque at 1,750 rpm.
In addition to the reintroduction of the TDI edition, probably the sweetest piece of news for Canadian consumers is its lower price. Passat now starts at just $23,975,

Design: Hard not to like
The interior remains true to Volkswagen with its functional layout and good materials. It’s a spacious fiveseater with large doors and lots of legroom for backseat passengers. Continued from page 18 dimensional, including a wheelbase that’s almost nine centimetres longer than its predecessor. Looking a little closer, there’s a subtle character crease that runs from the trailing edge of the headlight rearward, above the door handles, and connects with the wraparound tail light assembly. Then there’s that cute BMW-style small rear quarter window. All together, it’s an elegant package.
calm, functional layout with good materials. My test Passat TDI was the basic version, yet the cabin had a more upscale ambience and its cloth upholstery had a durable feel. The instrument cluster has simple design large round tachometer and speedometer gauges and smaller coolant temperature fuel gauge inserts. The trunk is huge (460 litre), plus the rear seatbacks split 60/40 and fold down for even more cargo space.

Laser seam-welding helps create the Passat’s extra rigid body structure, which also comes with six standard airbags. Unique to VW is an Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS). It automatically springs into action following a serious collision, cuts off fuel supply, unlocks doors, disconnects the battery from the alternator and turns on the hazard warning lights.
While seating capacity remains the same, the cabin space is greatly enhanced, especially for rear seat occupants. Large doors also allow them to get in or out easier. In addition, the doors are sculptured on the inside to allow extra shoulder room and make it a genuine five-seat sedan. Volkswagen interiors are generally top in class and the new Passat is no exception. Nothing flashy, it’s just a

Travel back in time, catch gold rush at Sovereign BY MARGARET DEEFHOLTS Special to the News
It is a hot January day and I am in Ballarat, Australia, thinking about a man who lived here at the turn of the last century. The man was my grandfather, and this is where he came seeking adventure as a young bachelor. In his time, Ballarat was still a gold mining community. Today, the miners have gone, and tourists fill the town coffers with dollar notes instead of gold nuggets. Even so, the past hasn’t entirely evaporated. At Ballarat’s Sovereign Hill, a stagecoach drawn by four magnificent chestnuts rumbles by me, and I am warped into an era which existed even before my granddad’s time. Sovereign Hill today is a living museum which sprawls across sixty acres of land. Unlike Barkerville in the Cariboo, Sovereign Hill is a reconstructed community, and at first I’d wondered whether this would be just another Disneylandstyle theme park. Not so. The museum presents its Australian mining heritage with dignity and pride — and its buildings have been constructed with meticulous attention to authentic historical architecture and style. Both entertaining and educational, it takes me the entire day to explore Sovereign Hill’s grounds, its shops, exhibits, stroll through the Chinese quarter, take in a rollicking vaudeville show at the Victoria theatre and catch some of the ongoing events. Main Street is where miners and their families would have shopped to buy merchandise such as soap, spices, herbs and coffee — as well as the latest fashions in Victorian crinolines, bonnetsm brought by stagecoach from Melbourne. Speedwell Street, leading off Main Street, is residential and, just as her historical persona might have done over a century ago, Mrs. Wain, a miner’s widow, smiles at me as she sews bonnets in her parlour. Some things haven’t changed over time. The wheelwright’s machinery and saddler’s tools are still in use, and the

anvil and hammer at the blacksmith’s shop also still echoes across the street. And some folks still pan for gold too. Red Hill Gully Creek, salted regularly with fine alluvial gold, runs through part of the site, and a little girl looks on as her brother dips and shakes his pan free of gravel. “Look!” she says excitedly. “There’s a shiny little bit, right there.” Her brother picks out a tiny glittering speck. His face
breaks into a gaptoothed grin. “Wow!” he says. “We’re rich!” A fleck of gold is one thing, a solid cube of shiny metal is quite another. I listen as a blacksmith explains the process of extracting gold from crushed quartz rock. Our smithy, wearing a thick protective apron, gloves and goggles, peers at the contents of a crucible “cooking” at 1200 degrees Celsius in a small furnace.
Picking up the crucible with a long handled pincer, he pours the molten liquid, a stream of thick, golden honey, into a mould. It solidifies within a couple of minutes. The mould is then immersed in a trough of water, where it sizzles and steams. Picking up the cold brick, he holds it up for us. “Well, there you are folks — an ingot, which is 99.9 per cent pure gold, and worth $55,000 in today’s market.” He catches my eye. “Want to hold it, Ma’am?” For 10 seconds, I cradle a small fortune in my palm. Nothing one reads, or sees on film, can equal the experience of actually exploring the labyrinthine tunnels of an underground mine. Although I am only 100 feet below ground at the Poppet Head Quartz Mine, the actual shaft goes down 1,100 feet, and the tour group eyes with trepidation the creaky wooden lifts operated by pulleys, which were used to see Museum page 24

with quartz rock through the tunnels, but a young volunteer in the audience, although he gamely tries every trick he can muster, can’t budge the receptacle an inch! The tour ends with an exhilarating ride on a rail trolley, zipping around

This usage has survived in the English words fortnight (14 days) and sennight (seven days). Eternity is a period beyond measure. The word is from the Latin “aeternus,” meaning without beginning or end. For me, the other extreme of eternity is one-sixtieth of a minute, the second. However, I’m told that currently the smallest measurable unit of time is the yoctosecond, which is one-septillionth of a second. Interesting — but I can’t relate to it at all. Just pronouncing the word probably takes zillions of yoctoseconds. I’ll stay with simple seconds, which I can count without even looking at a clock.

Cinevolution Media Arts fills film gap in city Society runs year-round programs, hosts annual festival and mentors new artists
As a contemporary Chinese filmmaker and journalist immigrating to a foreign country, Ying Wang was immediately attracted to the art scene. “In the ’90s in China, you couldn’t be exposed to modern art and new ideas,” said Wang, who came here in 1996. A passionate fan of film and arts, she was soon attending film festivals across the province. When she came to Richmond, Wang decided the city was in need of its own international film festival. What she lacked in knowledge to start up a festival, she made up for in passion and determination. In 2007, Wang founded Cinevolution Media Arts Society, along with former partner, Taiwan-born Rachel Fan. “At the time, Richmond didn’t have a real film festival so we were filling the gap,” she said. The pair launched the Asia Film Festival, which morphed into Your Kontinent Richmond International Film & Media Arts Festival. It features documentaries, dramas, site-specific art installations and animation from international and local film-
makers. “The name change reflected our idea of inclusiveness,” said Wang. “Richmond is a global village, therefore I felt we had to reflect that by offering films from all over the world, not just Asian movies.” Your Kontinent has grown each year and also features a dim sum movie night and Theatre Under the Star. “The media art installations are in large shipping containers, which will be outside the cultural centre and in various other public spaces during the festival,” added Wang. “Last year, more than 2,000 people attended the four-day festival.” Recently, Cinevolution was awarded the Artistic Innovation Award at the 2012 Richmond Arts Awards held last month in Richmond City Hall. “As a fairly new arts group in Richmond, Cinevolution was very humbled and grateful to the support, especially in front of so many pioneers in the art field, who have been making contribution to the community for years and decades,” said Wang. Cinevolution has also grown into much more than a film festival host.

Ying Wang began Cinevolution Media Arts Society in 2007. The society provides filmrelated programming and hosts Your Kontinent, an annual film festival. The group also puts on a number of different programs throughout the year — Hands-On Filmmaking and media arts workshops, Show and Tell Youth Media Screening, Community Digital Storytelling, Film Appreciation Night and the Dream Project. “All of these programs are free to the public,” said Wang. Earlier this month, Cinevolution hosted a film screening of Sea to Sea. “Forty people attended and after the screening there was dialogue between the movie goers, the panelists and the filmmaker,” said Wang. The not for profit organization also mentors young, aspiring filmmakers, helping them create and screen their own short films. It is run by artists and filmmakers — all of whom are volunteers and share Wang’s vision and love of arts and culture. Volunteers such as Ada Lee, 24, and

Yun-Jou Chang, 23, bring new ideas into Cinevolution, said Wang. “Ada and Yun-Jou have great energy and are bringing innovative ideas to the Youth Day program,” added Wang. Chang volunteers as media and public relations coordinator for the society and Lee helps with the Youth Day program. Chang, a recent University of B.C. graduate came on board because she said, “It’s important to me to get involved in the community and especially the arts movement here.” “I was attracted by the great energy and how passionate everyone is about what they do,” added Chang. Lee and Chang work out of the Media Lab, which the city has loaned for the organization’s use. “The youth program is by youth for youth,” said Chang. “For the film festival, we are working on a mini night club in one of the 9x9 shipping containers.” Like Wang, Lee is a film buff. see Margaret Dragu page 27

Sports Whitecaps FC to host pair of games at Minoru next month Women to battle Victoria while U23 team also in action

2-4 SUN OPEN
The 2012 Whitecaps Women’s Soccer Series once again features a stop at Minoru Park next month. The Whitecaps’ W-League schedule includes a game against the Victoria Highlanders on Sunday, July 8 at Minoru with kickoff slated for 4 p.m. The match is one of seven “home” games the Whitecaps are playing throughout the Lower Mainland this season. “The Whitecaps Women’s Soccer Series has been a great way to bring elite level soccer to communities throughout the Lower Mainland, and it would not be possible without the support of these host clubs,” said Dan Lenarduzzi, Whitecaps FC director of soccer development. “We look forward to another exciting season and we thank each of the clubs for their fantastic support.” The Whitecaps (1-3-2) got off to a slow start but did manage a 3-1 win over Los Angeles on Wednesday night after battling second place Seattle to a scoreless draw on Sunday. The Minrou doubleheader will get underway at noon with the Whitecaps’ U23 Premier Development League men’s team also taking on Victoria. Their roster features three Richmond players who have come through the Whitecaps Residency
program — Caleb Clarke, Declan Rodriguez and Carlos Marquez. Tickets for the two games cost $12 and can be purchased through the Richmond Girls Soccer Association website — www. richmondgirlssoccer.com — or at the gate.
Caleb Clarke is one of three Richmond players on the Whitecaps U23 team roster.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your month of quietude ends Wednesday – until then, rest, seek the spiritual, fulﬁll old obligations and deal with the government. These matters will proceed quite smoothly Sunday, less so Monday. Your energy rises midweek, but obstacles exist in home and relationship areas. (Your intuition’s superb Tuesday afternoon – act upon any tiny, calm urge.) Chase money, buy/sell, contact someone friendly and sexy, propose a business or career plan or project – everything runs smoothly, at least on the surface. (Realize your ambitions might create hidden opposition in a mate or another.) Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Enjoy friends, ﬂirtations and a cheerful mood Sunday to Tuesday morning. That’s the end of your celebratory mood for a few weeks, as a phase of weariness, solitude, quietude and recuperation begins Wednesday. Use these weeks ahead to contemplate your direction and surroundings, to plan future actions, and to deal with government agencies. Be charitable, spiritual. You’re tired Tuesday to Thursday, but your energy and magnetism return Friday/Saturday. Despite this quieting inﬂuence, your hopes will grow even stronger, and your friendships bright. A wish will come true soon! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: An ambitious period ends by Tuesday – but it was just the ﬁrst step – the whole year ahead will bless your strivings and boost your position. Midweek begins a month of celebration, popularity, good times, entertainment, optimism, and wish fulﬁllment. However, you’re still struggling with money, spending and income (until October) so don’t let joy interfere with ﬁnancial realities (especially Wednesday). Thursday night brings a slow-down: rest through Saturday; contemplate, plan, be charitable, contact head ofﬁce or a government agency. A “feeling” about marriage is correct.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: You’ll be really busy Sunday to mid-morning Tuesday, then suddenly a month of “stopping” starts. Rest, hibernate, garden, enjoy nature, focus your efforts on home, family, and security. This is NOT a good time to relocate or buy a home, but mid-2013 onward will be, so wait if you can. However, puttering, repairing will be ﬁne, if you start after Wednesday noon. You have a few major problems/decisions to deal with this decade: these become apparent this week and next. They involve home/security, marriage/relationships, and career/ worldly position. Romance calls late week. Taurus April 20-May 20: A restless, travel-prone month begins Wednesday. You might discover new places to live, even as early as this Friday/Saturday. Several big changes have taken place lately: you now face a new and growing set of social contacts, wishes, and hopeful involvements. This is just beginning, and will ﬁll the years ahead. Your money picture has also changed: the “asset chase” is over, but the 12 months ahead will boost your income fortunes, perhaps wildly! The biggest change of all is that the big changes of the last year are over, done. Great home, family, realty luck Friday/Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy and charisma remain high. In love, your prospects expand – you can “catch” almost anyone. But therein lies the rub: proceed carefully (now to mid2013). Decide what traits in another speak of a good mutual future, and which traits hint at the opposite. The only thing refused you Sunday/Monday might be family, social, realty or security luck. So ask for what you want, start important projects. Be careful with spending midweek. Thursday night to Saturday brings curiosity, new facts, travel, casual friends – new friends – and many little details. A prize lurks here!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of dreaming and thinking wisps away mid-week, replaced by ambition, practicality, pressures and demands. This arena has not been super easy or rewarding for you over the last two years, mainly because you valued caution and skepticism over effort and belief. This will continue to October, then you’ll bounce up again. Meanwhile, through July, hold up your end at work and solve problems rather than initiate projects. Many of these problems are relationship ones, which you are uniquely qualiﬁed to handle. Thursday night to Saturday fulﬁlls wishes – romance, popularity arrive! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A month of changes, investments, big ﬁnances, sexual urges and secrets/discoveries is almost over – but great luck will accompany you in these areas until mid2013. Be wary of a ﬁnancial commitment Sunday/ Monday, though. It might have a glitch, especially if machinery or a co-worker (or your employment) is involved. Talking it over, though, is a good idea. Midweek brings an expanded consciousness, wisdom, a mellow mood – to last several weeks. You want to understand rather than blame. Your career or prestige drives meet excellent responses Friday/ Saturday – charge forth! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Deal with an important relationship Sunday/Monday. Romance is not favoured but monetary, social and work relationships should go well. A new contact might open doors in future. Beware losing your temper Monday night. Midweek begins a month of investigation, mysteries, ﬁnancial commitments, sexual urges and lifestyle changes. Your subconscious will rise to the surface; your intuition will be high. Still, this is a dicey midweek and month ahead: snags lie under the surface, so keep your boat on putt-putt speed. Love, joy, understanding, and travel arise Friday/Saturday!
June 17 - 23, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A month of work saves its biggest for last – Sunday to Tuesday end a work month, but they might trigger a new work project. The 12 months ahead will be ﬁlled with duties and expanded chores. (A great year to ﬁnd better employment, and to purchase machinery – the best opportunities come AFTER August.) Tuesday/Wednesday begin a month of crucial relationships. This decade, in general, you’re in control, you carry the ace; but for the next few weeks another can demand – and get – their way. So be diplomatic, ﬂexible: therein lies opportunity. Late week: riches in some form. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A new romance might appear Sunday/Monday. It might suffer from sexual, communications or “visiting hours” glitches, so be alert. There will be at least two signiﬁcant opportunities for real romance in the 12 months ahead, especially after August. Mid-week starts a month of work and health concerns – and neither will be easy. So step carefully, avoid co-worker conﬂicts, sleep, eat and dress sensibly, and visit the MD if anything’s wrong. You’ll be aided by great intuition: following your instincts will keep you out of trouble. Relationships, exciting meetings, late week! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: You’ve been subtly held back over the last few weeks. There’s another phase of this Sunday/Monday, then a month begins that features romance, beauty, creativity, self-expression, beauty and passion. It won’t be the easiest month, as several big “dislocations” occur in the world which will affect you and those you love. But for you these will be glancing blows, whereas for others they can be direct. Still, romance (more correctly, intimacy) is difﬁcult when everyone’s screaming “crisis!” Friday/Saturday let you accomplish chores with super ease – buy a car or computer. email@example.com • Reading: 604-727-3673
