Scary time in Steveston BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

Walk the streets of Steveston and you might encounter Snow White, a man-eating plant, a bug-eyed skeleton or even a scarecrow-eating bear … is it a plot for an episode of ABC’s Once Upon a Time? No, it’s the 3rd Annual Steveston Scarecrow Crawl put on by the Steveston Merchants Association. “The initial idea was from the board because typically October and November are slow months in Steveston,” said Vince Morlet, SMA vice president and owner of Tapenade Bistro. “We wanted to create a little excitement in the village and give residents and visitors alike a reason to visit the village.”

Modeled after the popular New England Scarecrow Crawls, residents and visitors are encouraged to meander through Steveston Village to see what’s lurking in front of storefronts, restaurants and offices. “The last two years we’ve had amazing attendance, about 1,000 people … it helped that the weather was sunny and beautiful both years,” added Morlet. “But its happening again this year, rain or shine.” Also, this Sunday, the SMA is hosting the Steveston Scarecrow Hayday, at the Gulf of Georgia Fisherman’s Park with a pumpkinrolling contest, bobbing for apples and burlap sack races. For information about the events and more scarecrow photos go online at www.richmond-news.com.

Richmond safety fears unfounded: RCMSAR BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

The controversial closure of the federally funded Kitsilano Coast Guard base may not be as bad for Richmond as first feared. That’s the view of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCMSAR)’s Greg Miller, who said Richmond may even “benefit” from the shut down. The Kitsilano base is scheduled to close next summer, with the Coast Guard’s hovercraft at Sea Island expected to take up much of the slack. It’s also forecast that with the $

City may benefit from Kits closure, but volunteers needed closure, Richmond’s two volunteers manned RCMSAR vessels — based on the middle arm of the Fraser River and at Steveston — may have to cope with a 50 per cent spike in calls. However, Miller explained that Richmond may now receive more money from the government to train its crews to a higher standard. It now needs to deal with potentially 130 calls per year, as opposed to around 80. “We don’t expect too much impact (on service levels) in

Richmond,” Miller told city council’s community safety committee. “I actually think Richmond may benefit from extra money for more first aid training and other training. There is a potential drawback in that the hovercraft will have to cover a wider area and may be called out of our area more often. (But) we don’t think that there’s going to be a service difference in Richmond.” There will be a “higher demand,” said Miller, on the 30 volunteers that constitute the

HandiCrew offers more than income BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

Heather Langridge barely looks up as she deftly wraps pink string on what looks like a wooden lollipop stick. She then strings a bell on it, and with a big smile, triumphantly looks up. “I’m the fastest in the group,” said the 32-year-old member of the Richmond HandiCrew Cooperative about the soap wand. The province has declared October Community Living Month, a time when the skills that people with developmental disabilities can offer their communities are celebrated. The News is highlighting a couple of the many programs and services offered by the Richmond Society for Community Living. This feature about the Richmond HandiCrew Cooperative is the first of a two-part series. The cooperative began five years ago and is owned and operated by its employers — the members. “The HandiCrew is a social enterprise staffed and owned by about 20 people with disabilities and supported by RSCL,” said RSCL manager, Lisa Cowell. “Recently, LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics hired our members on a short-term contract basis to help on its pre-production

The HandiCrew offers its members so much more than an income, said Suzanne Jackson, RSCL employment specialist. “Working on the crew helps the individuals improve their skills, become more independent and self reliant, and, more importantly, they gain confidence and build their self

Child poverty not improving at best: survey 20 per cent of teacher, principals say problem getting worse BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

The Board of Education presented the results of its child poverty survey to city council Wednesday morning. Based on anecdotal responses from teachers and administrators, the survey found 20 per cent perceived an increase in poverty at their schools in recent years, compared to only eight per cent who perceived a decrease. Fifty per cent stayed the same, while 13

per cent were not sure, meaning at best, the problem remains the same, and is not improving. Due to privacy constraints, the board couldn’t ask families questions relating to their socioeconomic status, which makes the survey unofficial. However, the information is still useful, said school trustee Rod Belleza, who put forward a motion to conduct the survey in April. “We want to create awareness about this and bring it to the attention of the city,” said Belleza, who

least three times a week to work on the wands. “I love it … it’s cool and we are like one big happy family working together,” she said, adding the money is great too. “I’m saving my money to go with my caregiver to Las Vegas. “Last year, we went to the Philippines with what I made last year (with HandiCrew).” The crew began the project on Sept. 11. As of Oct. 2, they have already produced 10,770 of the contracted 16,000 pieces. Because the team has worked so diligently and ahead of schedule, LUSH asked if the HandiCrew team would produce an additional 5,000 pieces for the Toronto market. Michelle Cambruzzi, manager of the massage department at LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, said the company is delighted with the partnership. “It’s been a great partnership which has exceeded our expectations. We have invited them to make additional pieces for Toronto because they are so advanced in their West Coast pieces. It’s the first time we’ve partnered with the society and it has been a real eye opener for me. It’s great to see the good work they are doing.” see Members page 7

saw much poverty during his 20 years as an active community volunteer. “A social problem like this has a negative impact on an individual’s potential, and our objective is to focus on the development of a student’s potential.” It has frequently been reported that Richmond’s child poverty rate is the highest in the province at 26 per cent, according to 2006 census data reports, with one of the driving causes being the high cost of housing. see Poverty page 9

The missing Chinese tourists have been found safe and well in Richmond. Police issued a plea last week after the couple failed to turn up for their flight out of Vancouver on Friday. They were last seen at their hotel, the Sandmann, off Bridgeport Road. However, Tienan SHI , 55, and Liping WU, 47, were found safe and sound in the city on Oct. 7. There’s no word on why they missed their flight. Richmond RCMP thanks the public for its help.

News Murder probe highlights RCMP funding imbalance BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Despite half a million dollars being spent on one local murder investigation, Richmond needs more bang for its integrated police team buck. The startling cost of just one Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) ongoing murder probe — and the figure may still rise — was revealed to a city council committee this week. The city conducted an investigation of its own into how much it pays into the RCMP’s integrated team model and how much it gets out of it. It was discovered that Richmond paid out $6.34 million between 2010/11 and 2011/12, but received in return just $5.09 million in services from the Mounties’ five integrated regional teams. Surrey, in stark contrast, paid $19.46 million, while receiving $24.85 million in services. Mayor Malcolm Brodie asked if the massive shortfall can “safely be characterized as unsatisfactory?” “We had a homicide, which involved travel to Hong Kong and northern B.C., that cost $500,000, so far,” said the city’s general manager of law and community safety, Phyllis Carlyle. “Can we refine the formula (for paying into the model)? We should certainly start the discussion. “The education here is Surrey is getting an inordinately large amount of service for the amount paid and they’re skimming that on the back of other cities.” The discrepancy is something that the city will need to keep a close eye on, added

Carlyle. “We’re not going to get more refined figures from the RCMP,” she said. The figures and their comparisons were gleaned from the annual report from the Lower Mainland district of the RCMP’s integrated team. The city’s report analyzed the cost of funding the Mounties’ five specialized integrated teams: IHIT; Integrated Forensic Identification Services; Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service; Integrated Police Dog Services and Emergency Response. The amount spent by Richmond has risen to $3.35 million in 2011/12 from $2.69 million in 2008/09. Another spike is forecast next year, with an around 11 per cent jump to $3.72 million. Mayor Brodie reiterated, as he’s been doing much of the year amid the protracted RCMP contract negotiations, that the province should be paying the lion’s share of integrated policing costs. “There’s nobody controlling the costs, somebody has to oversee the function,” said Carlyle. The mayor was backed by community safety committee members in having copies of the city’s analysis sent to the solicitor general, the RCMP and making a further demand for the province to fund the integrated team on a 70/30 basis. The city’s report stated that, during the recent RCMP contract renewal negotiations, the city requested the B.C. government funds entirely the integrated teams. As it stands, IHIT is funded on a 70/30 basis between cities and B.C., with all other teams 90/10 between cities and the federal government.

Husband pleads guilty to wife’s murder BY JEREMY DEUTSCH Coquitlam Now

A husband will likely spend a number of years behind bars after pleading guilty to murdering his wife back in 2011. Zhongming (James) Mou, 36, pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder of Yating (Lancy) Hu, 27, in a New Westminster courtroom Tuesday. Hu’s body was recovered from a suitcase floating in the Fraser River near Steveston on Aug. 27 last year. She had been missing since mid-July of that year. Mou killed Hu in their Coquitlam home, leaving her body in an SUV — at one point

or a

while he drove their two kids to church. Hu’s estranged husband originally told police he had dropped her off at her Burnaby apartment on July 15 at about 8 p.m. Later, Mou changed his story and told investigators that Hu had stayed at the family’s Coquitlam home that night. He said they left the next morning at 5:30 a.m. It’s understood Hu’s parents now live in Richmond with their grandchildren. They said that Hu had been seeking a divorce. RCMP Sgt. Jennifer Pound said the guilty plea is a successful end to the sad case, which involved an intense investigation by police. — With a file from Alan Campbell

Members: Feel they are contributing more physically disabled.” The HandiCrew Cooperative has nearly 35 contracts. The members typically receive minimum wage as well as profit sharing. “Some, like the LUSH contract, might be a one-off,” added Jackson. “Someone might call us up to fix a fence, clean a garage or even take a large appliance for recycling.” There is five RSCL employment staff that work directly with the HandiCrew and there’s always one of them supervising the job site. For more information about the HandiCrew, call 604-241-4113, email info@ handycrew.ca or visit online at www.handycrew.ca.

Continued from page 3 Emin Jassal, 22, is a newcomer to the cooperative. Shyly, she said it’s her first paid job. “I wanted to do something because I wanted to save money for the Diwali Festival. It makes me feel good that I can work, and bring home a paycheque.” Because Jassal has limited use of her hands, it was challenging at first, but she soon realized her forte was putting the bells on the sticks. HandiCrew members take on two to four hour shifts, Monday to Friday. “We alternate shifts and most members work one or two days a week because they have programs they attend as well,” said Jackson. “What’s nice about [the LUSH] contract is that it’s not physical, which means we can open up more opportunities for those who are

Pink it up this month

T

he power of pink has grown in the 22 years since Susan G. Komen began handing ribbons to breast cancer survivors running in the annual Race for the Cure in New York City. Originally worn as a badge of courage by those who had faced chemotherapy and the surgeon’s scalpel, the colour pink has also been co-opted to symbolize corporate awareness. It was impossible to watch an NFL game on Sunday without seeing brawny athletes wearing pink cleats, socks or hand warmers. For some, this “pinkification” has become almost a betrayal of their cause — especially when coupled with allegations that some international fundraising benefits corporations more than cancer research. But the debate about charitable politics doesn’t alter the fact that almost 23,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and 5,100 will die of it, according to the Canadian Cancer Society. To put that another way, one in nine Canadian women are expected to contract breast cancer and one in 29 will die from it. A recent breakthrough, a major one, could change those mortality numbers. Scientists have almost completed mapping the genetic mutations in breast cancer, paving the way to creating more effective individual treatment plans. That makes this October a great month to support Breast Cancer Awareness. You don’t even have to wear pink. As always, there are many events in our community connected to fundraising. Check them out, support the cause, applaud the survivors.

Clark finds ruse in tunnel

The Editor, Re: “Clark aims to replace tunnel,” News, Oct. 3. TransLink was created so Victoria could distance itself from the financial albatross that was BC Transit. Now, when Premier Christy Clark needs to glad hand her way into some post-uselessness esteem, she’s marking territory under her name on the George Massey tunnel? I, and I bet many others, see right through you, Christy. How about you bump up funding for TransLink in general, plus health and education, and let your “too little, too late” actually be meaningful to more than a minority (approximately 360?) British Columbians? George Pope Richmond

Is Thanksgiving too political?

The Editor Is it just me or are the ugly tentacles of “political correctness” extending to Thanksgiving too? I seem to be hearing more and more people saying or writing “Happy Turkey Day” or people on the radio asking their colleagues if they had a good “Gobble Gobble Weekend.” Is it just about the turkey now? Can I get a Happy Thanksgiving? I mean, I’m just sayin’. Vince Miele Richmond

Time travel is the key to U.S. politics I met myself the other day. I don’t mean in some wishy-washy neo-hippie consciousness raising epiphanic moment way. I mean there was a bright flash of light in the backyard, and my older self appeared. Remember when the Large Hadron Collider was fired up? Apparently, that will lead to the discovery of time travel in 2028. When Apple bundles a time travel app on the 2031 edition of the iSkull implant, all heck breaks loose. When I got over the shock of meeting my 53year-old self (mental note: go to the gym more and vow never to buy toupee, avert dark future in which I resemble a muskrat), he explained everything. Apparently, time travel has already wreaked havoc with our present. The worst casualty is U.S. politics, which only makes sense in the light of hundreds, if not thousands, of time travellers constantly fiddling with history. Ronald Reagan, for example. Really — an actor best known for starring with an orangutan became president? This was an elaborate joke by a USC frat. However, Reagan was actually who he seemed to be. Most other politicians and members of the pundit class are time travellers themselves. Bill Clinton was a cloned bioroid created by

Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH

the Neo-Republicans of 2107, intended to discredit the Democrats by being a ridiculous punchline of a candidate. A womanizing, saxophone-playing, McDonald’s-eating, good old boy? It backfired on them a bit. George W. Bush is a genetically modified jellyfish colony from the year 333,947. He was sent back specifically to veto a single, minor piece of legislation that would have prevented the evolution of super-intelligent sea cucumbers. After that, the cucumbers pretty much let him off the leash and he got to indulge his passion for blowing stuff up and clearing brush on his ranch. Barrack Obama is not, no matter what anyone says, a Muslim/Indonesian/ Kenyan/socialist/radical. He’s a cyborg. He was created in 2074 to prevent, at all costs, the cancellation of Sesame Street. Apparently, if Elmo goes off the air, it will inevitably lead to nuclear war between the Empire of Neo-Tokyo and Mr. Fruitgum’s Happytime Candy Company, LLC. Mitt Romney is a more advanced cyborg created by Mr. Fruitgum’s Happytime

Candy Company to ensure that the corporation wins. House speaker John Boehner is from an alternate timeline in which humans are descended from three-toed sloths. Nancy Pelosi is a steampowered automaton and is attempting to de-stabilize America to re-create the British Empire. She got sidetracked on the way to the American Revolution. Vice president Joe Biden was created by Industrial Light and Magic in 2099, and is in fact merely a sophisticated special effect. Michele Bachman is not a time traveller, but will be revealed in 2019 to be a reptiloid from the centre of the Earth. Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, and most of the Fox News staff are scientists from 2784 studying human rage levels. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are unaware of this, because they are just visiting from 2693. Glenn Beck is not a time traveller, sloth, reptiloid, cyborg, jellyfish colony, or robot. He’s just...like that. Nobody knows why. Unfortunately, another rogue time traveller will probably be along any minute now to edit my future self’s visit out of our current reality. Then it will be as if this column — and this warning to you all — never happened. Matthew Claxton is a reporter for the Langley Advance.

Some kids really do love school School doesn’t always have to be a struggle. In fact, some kids love it - and not just because of friends or good grades. They love it because they’re willing to try, and because they feel confident in their ability to learn. All kids can love school. It just takes Oxford Learning to show them how.

Friends of the Library’s 40th Annual Whale of a Book Sale runs from Oct. 13 to 14 at the Thompson Community Centre. Lee Ann Smith, acting facilities coordinator, stacks more than 20,000 books, including Chinese language books.

Poverty: Needs coordinated response Continued from page 3 Though many debate the actual level of child poverty, the fact is it exists, teachers and administrators see it daily, and solutions need to be found, according to board members. While most schools have a fruit and vegetables snack program in place, only 30 per cent or less have a hot lunch program, a breakfast club, or a homework club. One of the problems faced by the district is the — Rod instability of these programs. A breakfast club initiated by a staff or PAC member, for example, might not continue the following year if the organizer leaves or retires. “This is where having a dialogue with the greater community — the city, the district, and nonprofit organizations — would be important,” said Belleza. “We need everyone to contribute solutions, perhaps this means having volunteers who are committed to the sustainability of these programs.”

The report recommended initiatives which included establishing stronger ties with various community organizations to ensure longevity of programs, continuing to advocate for Richmond students, and making school-based administrators more aware of which grants and support programs are available to them. One thing the report concluded, however, was that child poverty numbers will continue to grow and eventually staff and PACs Belleza won’t be able to support the larger number of needier students. Devising a system-wide plan would not be an efficient use of district resources, as the need varies greatly between schools. Instead, the district plans to focus on initiatives for the schools that are most in need, partnering with local organizations. “We’ve just done the first thing to get the community aware of the problem,” said Belleza. “Everyone says it’s not their mandate. It’s not the mandate of anyone, but it’s the responsibility of everyone.”

“[Poverty] is not the mandate of anyone, but it’s the responsibility of everyone..”

Kwantlen Formally Welcomes Dr. Alan Davis As President On October 2, Kwantlen Polytechnic University welcomed Dr. Alan Davis as president during a formal installation ceremony held at the university’s Surrey campus. The event began with a musical prelude, followed by the declaration of convocation, a robe presentation, and greetings from faculty, staff, and student representatives. In celebration of the university, its history and tradition, members of the Kwantlen First Nation participated in the ceremony by drumming Kwantlen’s Honour Song for the community leaders, scholars, faculty and staff members, alumni and media in attendance. “I am thrilled by the opportunity to lead such an exciting and important institution,” said Dr. Alan Davis. “The vision and mission of Kwantlen Polytechnic University align perfectly with the expectations of our region for us to support their social, economic and cultural growth. We will set goals that focus on our polytechnic university mandate, linking and

applying our teaching and learning to local and global contexts, and undertaking research activities that are relevant to our communities.” Hayley Woodin, journalism student at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, came to the podium to greet Dr. Davis and address the audience during the ceremony. “On behalf of the current student body and future Kwantlen students, we are happy to have such a leader join our institution. We know that as president, Dr. Davis will create an environment where students can not only get an education, but also develop their individual and personal potential.” A native of Reading, England, Dr. Davis has held influential positions at renowned institutions in the UK, United States and Canada; including roles at the British Columbia Open University, Athabasca University, Niagara College and Vancouver Community College. Most recently, he served as president of Empire State College at the State University of New York.

Mindful of its resilient and diverse history, Dr. Davis has become a part of Kwantlen’s journey as a polytechnic university and will greatly contribute by helping to provide the university with the essentials for innovative and ambitious growth.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University Welcomes

Kwantlen has been serving the Metro Vancouver region since 1981, and experienced monumental growth with the opening of its Surrey campus in 1990. Less than two years later Kwantlen celebrated the opening of the Richmond campus, and in 1993 became part of the Langley community. By 1995 the college officially changed its name to Kwantlen University College, becoming a bachelor’s degree-granting institution. Kwantlen continued to expand not only in size and facility, but also in programs, scholarships, research institutions, and athletics. By 2007 Kwantlen was ready to open its Trades and Technology Centre in Cloverdale, providing leading-edge trades and technology training for more than 900 students annually. In 2008 Kwantlen officially became Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Today, with campuses in Cloverdale, Langley, Richmond, and Surrey, Kwantlen Polytechnic University has opened the doors to success for more than 250,000 graduates. Over 18,000 students annually have a choice from over 200 programs, including bachelor’s degrees, associate degrees, diplomas, certificates and citations. Kwantlen’s new president has devoted his career to higher learning and continues to be passionate about the success and achievements of individuals taking it upon themselves to pursue an education. Aside from his extraordinary academic contributions through publications and presentations, Dr. Davis is also a published playwright. His plays for young people have been performed across Canada. The new president’s formal education combined with practical experience and unique vision will serve Kwantlen well as it continues to attract top students from around the world.

Art exhibit inspired by open conversations BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST Special to the News

The evolving role of women in society and the social and political milieu in which that evolution has happened is one of the issues explored in Open Conversations, an art exhibit currently showing at the Richmond Art Gallery. “Work in Progress” is a work of art, but gives the impression of being a documentary photograph. It shows about a dozen women spanning eight decades. All the women are seated in a kitchen, but each is occupied with a different job, demonstrating the evolution of women’s work. While the woman representing the ’50s is pushed back into the domestic sphere, the modern female worker has moved out of the home and a woman of colour takes her place. The window frame behind depicts political events from the different — Nan eras, be it the Spanish Civil War or the fall of the Berlin Wall. The aim of this work, and the show in general by Toronto-based artists Carol Condé and Karl Beveridge, is to spark conversations about issues people face on a daily basis. Despite countrywide recognition, the West Coast has yet to discover the artistic duo. The art gallery aims to raise appreciation through a retrospective of their body of work. Essentially, each project is centered on a different group of people and the issue most important to its members.

Nan Capogna, curator at Richmond Art Gallery, explains the practice of the married couple — an artistic collaborative team for more than 30 years. “They work with community groups and unions, asking them lots of questions and compiling information about their main concerns and aspirations,” she said. “Based on those open conversations, the artists create scenes in which they use group members or hired actors,” she added. As a result of those dialogues, the couple shares the creative process with group members, according to Capogna. The exhibition also displays a new work, “Community Matters”, designed in collaboration with the five agencies located in Richmond Cultural Centre: the arts centre, the library, the museum, the gallery and the archives. “We brought our cultural workers together and discussed our conCapogna cerns and challenges. While the artists worked with us, they honed in on a couple of our issues. What it really came down to, was advocacy for the arts and culture,” Capogna said. Condé and Beveridge also use photomontage, which is a technique where the artist digitally cuts and joins different images, eventually creating a final photograph. Each completed photograph carries visual clues relating to images or symbols from art history, political situations or social issues. Some even contain actual quotes from interviewees. see Theme page 15

JOBS British Columbians understand the importance of a job. A job helps families across the province provide for life’s essentials and gives the needed security to plan for the future. In today’s economy we know that obtaining the proper training and skill sets are essential for continued employment. In British Columbia, government wants to ensure that every citizen has the opportunity to develop the right skills, for the right workplace, at the right time. As part of Canada Starts Here: the BC Jobs Plan, our government is focusing in four key areas: • Promoting dynamic opportunities in trades and technical fields and improving policies that support these choices. • Investing $75 million to improve training facilities and equipment, and ensuring the availability of technical education teachers. • Obtaining the right mix and quality of trades and technical programs and accelerating completion times while maintaining the high educational standards required by industry. • Aligning economic immigration selection to B.C.’s labour market needs.

The BC Jobs Plan will help create a pool of skilled talent that puts British Columbians first in line to take advantage of the opportunities that result from the inflow of investments B.C. is currently experiencing. Investments in projects ranging from natural gas to ship building, mining to high technology manufacturing and transportation to real estate development. Of the one million jobs openings expected in the next 10 years, 43 per cent will require trades and technical training. The skills and training plan represents a fundamental change to how British Columbians prepare today for the jobs of tomorrow. Canada Starts Here: the BC Jobs Plan has attracted investment while adding thousands of new jobs to our economy, and has made British Columbia a nation leader in job creation.

WHY IS A PROPERTY DISCLOSURE STATEMENT IMPORTANT WITH A HOME PURCHASE? Sellers generally know their property the best and the Property Disclosure Statement (PDS) gives Sellers a way to confirm what they know about the property. Sellers are responsible for the accuracy of all answers they make on the PDS. The PDS is an important document that gives Buyers a starting point to make their own due-diligence investigation of the property they are purchasing. Note: The PDS does not provide information on psychological stigmas that may be associated with a property.

Nan Capogna, curator at the Richmond Art Gallery, stands in front of one of the politically provocative works included in the Open Conversations exhibit currently showing.

Theme: To uncover issues Continued from page 13 As such, “they can be read in a narrative way,” said Lynn Beavis, director of the art gallery. The clues illuminate the works, allowing visitors to discover what the pictures represent, she added. Condé and Beveridge have addressed issues such as racism, the crisis in the Canadian health care system and the collapse of the economy and the environment. The themes unveiled in the exhibition also correspond to the aim of the art gallery, Beavis said. “We present works that uncover issues

community members are concerned with, and that’s something these artists are particularly interested in as well,” she recounted. “I think — due to Richmond’s cultural and social mix — the issues explored here resonate with everyone in the community,” she said. The exhibition will be on display until Nov. 10 and is guest-curated by Scott Marsden.

Seniors’ falls may affect surgery recovery

Last week, an American medical online journal, MedicineNet.com, published important results from a new study regarding falls and surgery recovery in older persons. In the study, 208 patients (average age – 74) who had colorectal or heart surgery at a Veterans Affairs Medical Centre were examined. Thirty-four percent of them suffered one or more falls within six months of their surgery. The preliminary data showed that: - Complications occurred in 58% of patients who fell, but only in 27% of patients who did not fall. - Patients who suffered a fall spent about three times as many days in hospital as those who did not fall. - 59% of patients who fell needed institutional care after surgery, while only 4.2% of patients who did not fall needed the care. This significant study is the first of its kind, in which falls, as a “stand-alone” risk indicator, were used to predict surgical outcomes in older adults. More than one-third of U.S. surgeries are performed on persons over age 65. If a senior member of your family is suffering falls and needs surgery, it may be prudent to consult with your doctor about whether to delay surgery or whether to undertake any special recovery procedures.

Community Arthritis research centre hosts debate on technology and pain BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST Special to the News

A Richmond-based expert on arthritis is lauding the benefits of digital media in helping patients cope with their chronic condition. Dr. Anne Townsend — of the Milan Ilich Arthritis Research Centre in Richmond, who’s also a medical sociologist at the University of B.C. — said patients using digital media to research their disease are much more informed and engaged than ever before. And with today (Friday) being World Arthritis Day, the Milan Ilich centre is hosting an open debate next week in Vancouver on the role of digital media in the transformation of health care for patients suffering from arthritis or chronic pain. The centre aims to gather patients, health care providers and others to share their valuable experiences. Patients have changed markedly due to digital media, according to Townsend, a speaker at the event. Townsend said patients often educate themselves through the Internet. In fact, almost three out of four Canadians turn to the web for medical or health related research, she added. To improve the delivery of trustworthy and user-friendly information for patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, Dr. Linda Li — assistant professor in the department of physical therapy at UBC and also a speaker at the event — has developed ANSWER, an interactive online tool. Through cartoons and stories, the tool enables patients to make informed and time-

ly decisions about their treatment. As a result of such independent searches, “they have things to talk about once they’re in the consultation room,” said Townsend. “Instead of just following doctor’s orders, shared decision making has become more of a reality.” Patients involved in such decision-making processes are also more likely to stay on their medication, she recounted. Another opportunity emerging through the Internet is the exchange of knowledge and experiences, according to Townsend. “By turning to blogs and Twitter, patients are participating in conversations with each other, doctors and health policy makers. The Internet has given them a voice,” she said. Also, patients have used the Internet to get a quicker diagnosis, taking the information to their family doctor who hadn’t recognized their symptoms before, Townsend’s research revealed. Nevertheless, digital media pose challenges for health care, too. “The amount of information available is difficult to manage. Patients run the risk of being misinformed with sources not always being credible,” she warned. What’s more, conflicts could emerge in the relationship between doctors and their patients. “Privacy can be an problem when a patient wants to befriend the doctor on Facebook or when the doctor enters a patient’s personal blog story,” she said. The debate will be held Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. at W2 Media Café. It can also be followed online: www.livestream. com/w2media or via Twitter: #WiredCafe.

Time bomb: Tying job offers to immigration Continued from page 23 where there’s currency there is temptation and corruption, people will continue to try to scam the system. That means job offers will need to be first verified and later audited for compliance. Employers will be required to bury government staff in enough paper to convince them that the job is for real. The TSX will be led by companies that make red tape. Even if a job offer is genuine, it might not answer a labour market need. Maybe it’s just to help a relative or friend immigrate to Canada. Labour market trends, and unemployment and wage levels will need to be tracked. And so must the degree of effort the employer puts into filling that position with a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. To properly service all of these increased demands from immigration, Human Resources Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) ought to be adding an army of bureaucrats, but they will instead be shedding

significant numbers of staff as part of $4 billion worth of cuts in spending under the government’s Strategic and Operating Review. That same review is going to cut a swath through Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) staff as well. So one hand opens the tap on a torrent of pent up applications and the other decimates HRSDC and CIC — which is already in chaos from all the new programs and visapost closures. I’m all for balanced budgets, but significantly ramping up demand while significantly cutting back staff is a recipe for disaster, not fiscal responsibility. More on the coming face of immigration, next time. Dr. Joe Greenholtz is a regulated Canadian immigration consultant (RCIC) and a director of the Premier Canadian Immigration Co-op. He also sits on the Richmond intercultural Advisory Committee. He can be reached at joe@premiercic.com.

Tesla rejigs electric car BY BRENDAN MCALEER Special to the News

Nikola Tesla was a turnof-the-century SerbianAmerican inventor who spent his life faffing about with electricity. While he died a penniless pauper and risked being swept under the patched and stained rug of history, his madcap experiments and stunning intellect have made him something of a popular culture icon of late. In the eyes of the interwebs, Tesla is the epitome of the friendly mad scientist, accidentally opening rifts in the space-time continuum and then duct-taping them back together again and hoping no-one was looking. The stuff he could get electricity to do is nothing short of staggering: to this day, no other scientist has been able to replicate the weird natural storm phenomenon of ball lightning. So, a man who could make electricity dance, and here I am, driving a car that bears his name. It’s the Tesla Model S, and if you’ve immediately noticed the parallel nomenclature with “Model T”, that’s not an accident either. This machine is meant to be a transportation revolution, an entirely new kind of thinking about the electric car. While Nissan — and to a lesser extent, Mitsubishi — have done great work in making the EV accessible to the masses, there’s little to fire the imagination about either car. Most electric vehicles are interesting little plug-in eco-pods: like a Prius with the gas engine thrown out. The Model S, by contrast, is as sleekly curvaceous as anything sketched by Pininfarina, and has the kind of commanding curb presence that’d make the boys in Stuttgart go green with envy. Speaking of which, the last time I was on this par-

ticular stretch of road, I was ensconced behind the wheel of Porsche’s super-sedan — a Panamera GTS. The motoring press has already drooled all over this uber-fast eyesore (I rather like it as well), what with its “shrinks-aroundyou” handling, ridiculous levels of physical grip and glorious V8 bellow. Just one problem: next to what I’m currently driving, I might as well have been propelling myself by shuffling my feet whilst shouting, “Yabba dabba doo!” The future is here, and it’s time to ride the lightning. Leaving aside the best application of touchscreen technology as a command interface I’ve ever seen, the cabin of the Model S is fairly ordinary. The one weird thing? Huge amounts of space everywhere. Electric-drive technology is both extremely compact and extremely flat, allowing the 5-seater sedan plenty of room front and back, as well as a cavernous trunk and a roomy cargo area up front as well. The low floor between the driver and passenger is practically truck-like, and looks big enough to accommodate an old-fashioned bench seat. But I’m happy we’re seated in sports-buckets instead. Grasping a shift lever stolen right out of a Mercedes C-Class, I put the car in D and off we go. No need to insert a key or press a starter button: the Tesla simply notes your weight in the driver seat and prepares to engage. Oh yeah, “engage.” Trekkies will remember good ol’ Jean Luc Picard issuing this order with baritone authority every time the Enterprise leapt to warp speed. Well, this machine’s got warp drive too. The key is torque. While diesel engines have prodigious grunt and the new range of direct-injection,

Continued from page 27 electric motor. Think of the immediate power you get out of your cordless drill when putting a woodscrew into timber. There’s no hesitation with an electric-drive — pull the trigger and it gives you full power from a nominal zero rpm. In the case of this Performance version of the Model S, that means all 443lb/ft of twist flings you forward into hyperspace with a simple flex of your right foot. Weirder yet, it does so in near-silence with a squeaky creak of an old bellows as electrons fire through the motor and catapult you down the road. On a full charge, the Model S has enough juice to get you through about 400kms of cruising — back and forth to Whistler should be a dawdle for the lightfooted. On the other hand, this is no eco-pod. The intoxicating surge of the power is (pardon the pun) simply electrifying, and the low centre of gravity means the Model S carves through the corner with an aplomb that belies its weight.

It’s not just cleaner-running than a gasoline-powered supercar, it’s more enjoyable as well. There are some drawbacks. Keep getting zippy with the go-switch and the Tesla will deplete its batteries faster than a remote-control car on Christmas morning. Also, this pre-production model has a few issues (a rear door handle decided to stop working). With a Vancouver service centre to open in the fall and a Canadian retail outlet due in Toronto by November, cars are just starting to trickle in. Tesla also plans to have a number of their quick-charging stations up and down the West Coast before too long, for those who wish to drive down to sunny California. In the meantime, it’s a glimpse of the future of motoring — and one that doesn’t make the car-loving part of me want to fling myself off a cliff at the thought of fleets of self-driving beige-mobiles. It’s stunningly powerful, beautifully designed, thrilling to drive and way out in front of the pack. Nikola would be proud.

VANCOUVER ISLAND

Taking a big Oceanside swing, splash back in time BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Mini-golf, bumper boats, parrots and parks all part of old school vacation fun

I

n the flood-lit shadow of the Old Woman’s Shoe, I made a desperate attempt to flee the onslaught. There seemed no way out. No matter how hard I pulled on the throttle, my pursuer gained and gained, all the time he rained down the back of my neck a constant icy-cold water jet. Much to the amusement of my snap-happy wife, I was coming off much the worse in my first bumper boat battle with my 10-year-old son, Ben. When our five minutes of evening “family fun” was up and his tiny reign of terror was over, I swear I couldn’t have been wetter if I’d climbed out of the nearby ocean at Parksville beach. In fact, I’m pretty damn sure the sea on this little old-fashioned slice of Vancouver Island, which is known to have the most temperate shores in Canada, would have been warmer than the waterfall that cascaded down my back. Thankfully, it was just a 50 yard squelch from the Paradise Fun Park, with its faux castle and Old Woman’s Shoe, to our pet-friendly Paradise Seashell Motel room — paradise, ironically, being the word furthest from my mind for that wet 30-second walk. Bumper boats aside, the mini-golf at Paradise is the showcase track — and a fair bit drier — for one of the attractions in the Parksville and Qualicum Beach area. Under the lamps after dark, the Paradise course pays incredible attention to detail and is rife with imagination — featuring two funfilled courses, complete with giant clocks, pirate ships, caves and lighthouses. There are plenty of other fun courses nearby as well, including Riptide Lagoon and Nature Golf; but Paradise trumps them all. With its moniker as the “Mini-golf capital of the Island,” Parksville/Qualicum is a welcome step back in time to when families headed en masse to the nearest seaside resort town for their vacation. Basically, if you like mini-golf, bumper boats, village markets, beautiful nature trails, walks along the beach and fish ’n’ chips, then this is your idea of heaven.

Parksville just 40 minutes or so up the coast, you’ll not be wasting half your trip in the car either. The narrow strip of land between the sea and mountains that is home to Parksville and Qualicum Beach is referred to locally as Oceanside. The reason being that there’s not much that doesn’t happen by the sea in these parts, not least because of the aforementioned warm paddling water. Beachcombing, swimming, fishing or just strolling the hard-packed expanse when the tide rolls out are all favourite pastimes of locals and tourists alike. We did partake of one or two Oceanside ventures — Rathtrevor Beach is raw, rugged and captivating; but totally dog-unfriendly; while Qualicum Beach does allow dogs, at least, on-leash. We couldn’t find an off-leash beach, so it would be hard-pushed to describe Oceanside as genuinely pet-friendly. The late summer rain showers pushed us further inland for entertainment, where we discovered there’s more depth to the quaint region than mini-golf and motels. Coombs, a tiny village about 10 minutes drive west, plays host to a daily marketplace where the star attraction is the Goats on the Roof village supermarket, which, yes, on occasion, does have goats eating the grass on its roof. The village also has a rather eccentric emporium, complete with about a dozen or so stone sculptures, including a Buddha, and a cartoonesque shipwreck — which legend

has it belonged to a Captain Coombs, who centuries ago, was swept to that very spot in his ship by a tsunami wave. A few kilometres down the country road was the World Parrot Refuge, which was an absolute hoot, if you pardon the pun. For a small entrance fee, you’re invited to roam inside the giant parrot house, where rescued and unwanted parrots are taken in from around the globe. Such is the proximity of these guys, you are warned to keep jewellery and anything dangly or shiny out of sight, they will steal it! It is noisy, though, so be prepared to have your ear drums tested. They are genuinely friendly and funny as well as noisy and many of them will be trying to connect with you by showing off their mimicking vocal chords. A picnic at Little Qualicum Falls, about another 15 minutes northwest, is also highly recommended, with its winding nature trails and picturesque waterfalls, weaving its way down the canyon. We tried and failed to get to the renowned Horne Lake Caves Park, about another half an hour north of Parksville. But the 15 kilometres of rough gravel road that leads to the park was too much for our little car and we gave up less than halfway up the track. Instead, we headed back towards Oceanside and paid a visit to the neat little ye olde town of Qualicum Beach, home of The Vintage Kandy Store. Be warned, give yourself a “know your limit, eat within it” rule, you WILL see everything you spent your allowance on as a kid.

Home ice no advantage between PIJHL rivals BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

An early season impression of the Pacific International Junior Hockey League’s biggest rivalry is home ice advantage means nothing so far. Just four days after the Delta Ice Hawks’ dominating 4-0 victory at Minoru Arena, the Richmond Sockeyes returned the favour with a 4-1 win at the Ladner Leisure Centre Tuesday night. The homeand-home split left the Sockeyes (7-1-1) with a one point lead over the Ice Hawks (7-2-0) in a battle that is expected to last all season. After being provided a rude awakening on their home ice, to the tune of being outshot 49-18, the best thing that could have happened to the Sockeyes was a short wait for redemption. They took care of the North Vancouver Wolfpack 3-1 on Saturday night then put together a solid 60-minute performance in Ladner.

“I kind of compare it to a title fight with these guys where they got round one and we had a chance to regroup and got focused on winning round two,” said Richmond coach Aaron Wilbur. “I felt we played an organized and complete game so we are happy. “We just didn’t have a lot of second effort in the first game, especially when it came to puck possession. We talked about our one on one play and protecting the puck. We were good with our sticks tonight and it gave us a chance to do well in other areas. The Sockeyes led 10 after 20 minutes and doubled the margin on a goal by Dylan Friel who was acquired just hours earlier from the Port Moody Panthers. The 20-year-old learned of the trade Tuesday afternoon, raced from his job in Langley to his Burnaby home to get his equipment and arrived in Ladner just minutes before the opening faceoff. Rookie Michael Olsen-

wasall but sealed when Danton Heinen jumped on an advantageous bounce off the end boards and beat goalie Scott Lapp at the 4:04 mark of the third period. The Ice Hawks were playing without league leading scorer Anthony Brito who was at home with the flu. The 20-yearold, who has 25 points in eight games, was huge at the game in Minoru with a pair of goals and one assist. However, his absence was no excuse for the team’s subpar performance, accord-

ing to head coach Dave McLellan. “I was disappointed in our work effort more than anything,” he said. “We pride our selves in hard work and we certainly didn’t show up with hard work. Tonight was an example of where we couldn’t play effectively in any of the three zones. “It certainly was not the same level of performance as our previous games. You have to learn from a game like this that being lazy does’t work. That’s what

happens when you get a little complacent after beating one of the best teams in the league.” The Ice Hawks are so far a perfect 4-0 on the road but just 3-2 at home. They have also won their last three games at Minoru, dating back to last season’s conference final playoff series. “The funny thing is we have built this team to play in this rink,” laughed McLellan. “Our arena seems to help Richmond where in their arena we have been all over them.”

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on relationships, especially Sunday/Monday.All October, you’ll hear secrets, divine someone’s true intent, or share in financial knowledge/action with another. If someone attracts you (a co-worker?) intimate talk is not far behind. (Perhaps Monday to Wednesday – with no guarantee of success.) Careful – this love can turn to work. Your cultural, intellectual, travel and love nature emerges strongly late week (and to mid-November). A new project in these arenas is pretty certain. But avoid legal hassles/suits, into midDecember. Be ambitious Saturday: contact VIPs. Taurus April 20-May 20: Work hard – it’s the only “sure thing” now, especially Sunday (maybe Monday) when your efforts can lead, financially, to success that somehow involves the government, an institution or large corporation. Relationships demand diplomacy, co-operation midweek. You might be attracted to a sexual or financial situation Wednesday night to Friday eve, and right into midNovember. Be careful: impulsivity can lead to chains. But there is also a money opportunity here, on the earnings-for-work side – mostly Thursday. A sweet, gentle mood flows over you Friday eve, Saturday: love brews. Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent continues on romance, infatuation, pleasure, creativity, beauty, children’s affairs and taking successful risks, especially Sunday/Monday – if you’re single, you could fall in love. (This is a bright, nervy, witty, friendly, “electric” meeting/person – and the “falling in” could be delayed – but not long.) Tackle chores Tuesday/ Wednesday. Relationships, exciting meetings, occur Wednesday eve to Friday afternoon. Be diplomatic, co-operative. All links are heating up – this causes you great hope, but irks another. It’s love or war. Home remains sweet. Sexy urges Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The focus remains on kids, home, food, shelter, security, basics and foundations, both Sunday/Monday, and this whole week. These are your zones of strength, so all should go well. While at home (or café, park, plant nursery, etc.) you might get a splendid career/work idea. Communications are affectionate all month. You might receive or send a love “note” (glance, flirty email). Midweek brings romantic notions, though whether you should follow them is not certain. (If you meet/date Tuesday eve, a new love might begin.) Tackle tasks Thursday onward – your career will benefit. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Travel, communicate and visit Sunday/Monday – Sunday’s much better. A romantic wish could come true, or you could make a great friend. Be home, focus on domestic matters Monday night to Wednesday. Family members are unusually talkative (and would love a trip). This evening to Friday brings romance, adventure, pleasure, beauty and speculative luck. Tackle chores Saturday. All October, your money, income and spending luck sail sweetly along. Now to midNovember, your romantic courage is high; you could meet an exciting, marriageable partner (better this week than the next four). Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Continue to chase money, especially Sunday (and Monday, though routine is better this day). Travel, communicate, contact casual friends and do paperwork Tuesday/Wednesday. Be domestic, strive to further your security, retirement nest egg, children’s interests, late Wednesday night (listen to mate’s misgivings) to Friday afternoon. Romance, creativity and/or pleasure lure you Saturday – go. All month, you radiate a subtle charm; it attracts others, financially and emotionally. But step lightly at home: the floor burns with potential quarrels. Yet you desire to buy property.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your charisma and energy remain high, Libra. Continue to start things, to seek attention, favours and affirmative replies. You’re especially “in your power” Sunday/Monday – though watch the “start nothing” interval. Chase money, buy and sell Monday night, Tuesday – but avoid jewelry, travel tickets and luxury items generally. Thursday/ Friday bring travel, notes, reports, media, minor joys and casual friends (a potential mate might be among these). Focus on home, domesticity, security, children Saturday. Your inner world and confidants remain affectionate, lucky all month. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to lie low, rest, contemplate and plan, especially Sunday/Monday. (Let the plans be dreams Monday, as this day’s ones won’t really come true.) Your energy rises mildly Monday eve to Wednesday eve – lots of progress promised Tuesday. Chase money Thursday/Friday. Saturday’s for friends, trips, errands and paperwork (or read a paper). Now to mid-November much money will come to you, but you could spend even more, ending at a loss. Be conservative, bank it. Friends remain a delight this week and next. Though you’re tired, you remain unexpectedly alert and communicative. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Dreams come true this week, especially Sunday/Monday – or you might make a wish that later comes true. (Fully expressed wishes seldom manifest: so let yours be a “feeling,” or semi-conscious.) Retreat, rest and think things over Tuesday/Wednesday: you’ve met a new friend or two in past weeks, might have begun a flirtatious relationship. Your energy and charisma soar Wednesday night to Friday – as does your popularity. Your romantic quotient is surging. However, a “suitor” – one who talks partnership – has the advantage. Higher-ups favour you all month. Buy/sell, Saturday.

Oct. 14 - 20, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to pursue your ambitions, especially Sunday (best) Monday (but stick to routine, projects already “safe”) Tuesday (butter up VIPs or enhance co-worker relations via “fun”) and Thursday to Saturday. Your hopes and sociability rise Tuesday/Wednesday. Rest and plan, Thursday/Friday. Your energy and charisma lift Friday eve, Saturday – start something! All month, benefits come from intellectual, foreign, legal, publishing and similar sources. You might improve/purchase a property for security or family reasons anytime now into midNovember – seek government aid. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The mellow, loving mood continues. You benefit this week from international, publishing, educational, cultural, ritual, intellectual, legal, far travel and similar matters, especially Sunday/ Monday and Thursday. (Don’t start anything Monday, though.) Be ambitious Monday night to Wednesday eve – higher-ups approve of your energy, but they’re casting a skeptical eye on your romantic and creative episodes/ideas. These VIPs (now to 2015) don’t like “fun.” Optimism, popularity, entertainment and light romance come Thursday/Friday. You’ll be popular into mid-November. Sleep Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The mysteries continue – research, perform detective work, diagnose health, make changes,invest,fix finances,make commitments, and seek intimacy – these are very lucky Sunday, (seek earnings) and somewhat favoured Monday. (Monday’s things have a hard time “culminating.”) Wisdom and a mellow mood bless you Tuesday/Wednesday. Be ambitious, speak with higher-ups Thursday/Friday. (People in charge are testy, impatient now through midNovember, but that shouldn’t impede your ambitions.) A gathering, a flirtation, your popularity, future plans – something makes you happy Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
