Students from J.N. Burnett secondary are determined to raise money to put a name to the unmarked graves of fallen soldiers.
Students muster to mark fallen’s graves BY YVONNE ROBERTSON
For most people, Remembrance Day is a time reserved for honouring those who fought in the war, both alive and dead. Many ceremonies are held across the country, where people visit memorials, nameplates, or tombstones acknowledging those who served. But what if these places of recognition don’t exist? It can be hard to remember when there is nothing to mark or recognize a fallen soldier. A Grade 12 history class at J.N. Burnett secondary decided to right this wrong, fundraising for the more than 900 unmarked soldiers’ graves at Vancouver’s Mountainview Cemetery. “I was really shocked to find out there were so many unmarked graves, and quite saddened,” said history teacher Patrick Anderson. “We talk about Remembrance Day, and we go through all the right motions, but I’d say most people don’t know or think about this fact.” Anderson had heard about teachers in the U.S. fundraising to buy grave markers for soldiers whose families may not have been able to afford the cost at the time. He wondered if the same applied to a local cemetery. After presenting the idea to his class, the group of about 20 students dressed in somber colours and visited the cemetery Wednesday afternoon to see where the unrecognized are $

we’re going beyond history, like contributing to history in the present.” The cemetery tour, guided by volunteer John Atkin, kick started their fund raising efforts, where in the coming weeks they’ll canvas around the school and possible places in the community, hoping to raise close to $1,000, as each plaque costs $225. “We’re trying to do something outside of the classroom here,” said Anderson, who’s been at the school for about eight years and teaching history for close to five. “It’s learning history by doing. We want to emphasize social responsibility in schools now, and this is a real chance to do something.” Throughout the tour, the students maintained a respectful composure, asking Atkin questions. Some talked amongst themselves about the experience as they walked from section to section, while others silently took it in. “It’s a great idea, I’ve never heard of students doing something like this,” said student Shannon Weatherill, whose grandfather served in the army. “It’s a legacy for History 12, that we’re part of something bigger than just listening in a classroom. I wasn’t surprised that unmarked graves exist, but surprised that there are so many here.” There are about 12,000 veterans buried in the cemetery, mainly divided into two sections — the Commonwealth War Graves (for those who died in action) and the Field of Honour. see Student page 6

Brave shopper recalls moment he thought gun was being turned
The bystander who took out an armed robbery suspect told the News of the incredible struggle inside a car and the moment he thought the gun was being turned on him. Former security guard Dave, who asked for his last name to be withheld, leapt into action after watching two masked men flee Ben Moss jewelry store in Richmond Centre Tuesday evening. After pursuing one of the suspects out of the mall’s No. 3 Road exit, Dave heard a scream and commotion at a car in the Brighouse Square parking lot over the other side of the road. Without a second’s thought for his own safety, he ran over to see the armed man trying to wrestle the female driver out of her car with threats of “get out of the God damn car, I have a gun.” It was in that two or three-second flash that Dave seized his chance to tackle the suspect head-on. “That was my moment of opportunity,” Dave said.
“(The driver) was screaming and struggling, I don’t think she wanted to get out. I kinda pushed him into the car and managed to force the gun hand to the side. “I was kinda on top of him and the woman was under there somewhere. I thought to myself ‘he’s trying to turn that gun on me.’” Dave recalls it was about that time that the gun, thought to be a .45 caliber pistol, went off inside the car. “(The suspect) bit my hand; it was my hand that was stopping the gun from being pointed at me,” recalled Dave, who said he has lots of experience with weapons due to many teenage years in the cadets. “But I’ve been in these situations before and the bite just made me push down even harder.” The drama unfolded just after 6 p.m. Tuesday when two men entered Ben Moss Jewelers inside the mall and began smashing the glass disCHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS play cases, according to witnesses.

Lesbian officer steps up for LGBT youth facing discrimination BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News
“I was most worried about Kevin.”
Const. Connie Henderson has a message for gay teens.
BY ALAN CAMPBELL
There is a light at the end of the tunnel is the message Const. Connie Henderson wants lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens to hear. That’s why the Richmond RCMP officer agreed to go on camera, along with 20 colleagues, to film a nine-minute video called It Gets Better, in which she talks about her experience of coming to terms with her lesbian identity. “I thought (making the video) was really important. I know, for me, not having known anybody as a teen who was gay (was hard.) If there was more support, it might have made me more aware.” Raising awareness is why Const. Cheryl Letkeman of the Surrey Youth Section posted a
notice to all the Lower Mainland RCMP detachments asking for LGBT staff to participate in the video to show these issues are universal and can affect anybody. In the anti-gay bullying video released earlier this week, 31-yearold Henderson refers to herself as a “late bloomer” not realizing she was gay until she was 29 years old. She said when she was young, there were no programs, education or even much mention about the LGBT community. Like others struggling with their sexual identity, Henderson always knew something about her was different. “My mom died when I was really little — I thought the attraction I had to women was towards a mother figure. Then one day I realized that I was very attracted
to one woman in particular and it was like, okay, (this) is not just an emotional connection with somebody.” However, Henderson didn’t come to that conclusion until after getting married and having a child with her former husband. Coming out in today’s world, where being gay doesn’t carry as much stigma as it once did, does have its advantages. Even in her line of work, she said it’s not all that often she faces discrimination. “At work I’m pretty open. I’ve never stood up on a podium, but I just live my life and people are very respectful. Some people have said they’re really proud of me now that I’m out. They’ve noticed a really positive vibe, and the feedback I’ve gotten is how much happier I seem.” see City page 4

City: Tolerant of homosexuality Continued from page 3 In fact, the only incidents Henderson — a traffic investigator — can recall have been while making arrests when she hears the occasional “dyke” comment. “It’s something they throw out in anger when you’re a female police officer and you have short hair,” she said. Nevertheless, we can’t be complacent about bullying in any form, said Henderson, citing the Amanda Todd tragedy. “People don’t have any idea how negatively their comments on the Internet can affect other people. The anonymity is like when you’re driving and swearing at the person in front of you. If you were faceto-face, you wouldn’t say the things you’re saying.” Born and raised in Surrey, Henderson has worked in the Richmond detachment for the last two and half years. She feels the city is very tolerant, never having dealt with or even hearing of any hate crimes targeted towards gays.

Education Ministry wants input B.C.’s Ministry of Education is looking to the school districts for feedback. The ministry are holding workshops — called A Community Conversation about the Future of Graduation Requirements — across the province, with one at Steveston-London secondary on Tuesday. The event invited community members, parents, students and administrators to discuss changes they would like to see to the school curriculum. Attendees were divided into smaller discussion groups to talk about five key questions presented by the ministry. Approximately 150 people showed up to Tuesday’s event, with 80 parents, 30 students from Grades 8-12 and 40 community members and administrators. “Having the students here has been really awesome,” said assistant superintendent Wendy Lim. “They show their passion in the future of their schools. These high school students are the freshest out of the system, so they’ll be able to help younger grades.” What stood out most amongst the students was the need for more hands-on experience. “More volunteer opportunities will allow us the ability to talk to people in different career fields,” said a Grade 12 McMath secondary student. In a similar vein, the ministry proposed to increase the amount of choice students have in high school, giving them more flexibility to pursue these opportunities. This would mean a decrease in the number of mandatory courses in higher grades.
The curriculum would need to shift so that by Grades 8, 9 and 10, students have already been exposed to the basics in a variety of subjects and can choose which ones they want to learn more about in the higher grades. “We might be decreasing the mandatory subjects, but we’ll be shifting the whole curriculum so that students become life learners,” said Lim. “If a subject isn’t learned at school, we want them to be curious to find out more on their own.” B.C has the highest number of learning outcomes of any region worldwide at 84, according to ministry representative Lynn Archer. This means students are responsible for learning 84 areas, from magnetic fields in Grade 2 to algebra in Grade 6. The ministry is looking to reduce the amount of outcomes so teachers don’t feel overwhelmed by the amount. While students agreed with an increase in flexibility, parents and administrators wanted to see more attention paid to technology and plagiarism. Other parents discussed the role of diversity in the school system and the need to better integrate ESL students into the regular school system — some even questioning the necessity of the service. “I find the program isolates my kids more because they’re missing out on what’s going on in the classroom,” said one parent. Each participant’s input was documented and will be used to compile the final report. The report will be sent to the board by December, with the ministry receiving feedback from all districts by the following year.

ogy, where the present parties didn’t commit the wrong, Anderson still feels it is an important wrong to be righted. “It may be that nobody will ever look at these plaques, but I think it’s the right thing to do. I’d definitely come back in the future to visit. These people have made this great sacrifice, but there’s not enough for them after the war. On a basic level, it’s not right.” The cemetery fundraises separately for unmarked graves through its Veterans Memorial Project where people can donate online.

Switching countries? Make sure you know the retirement pension systems!
Anyone moving to the U.S. or to Canada should know the respective retirement pension plans in effect. The U.S. has two funding sources: the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Federal Old Age, Survivor and Disability Insurance. SSI, funded by government revenue, provides income to low-income persons who are blind and/or disabled. The Federal program, funded by employer/employee contributions, pays beneﬁts based on contributions over a person’s career. Beneﬁts start at age 67, but a person can apply at age 62 for a reduced beneﬁt. The maximum Federal monthly beneﬁt in 2012 is US$2,513. Canada has three funding sources: the Canada Pension Plan (CPP), Old Age Security (OAS) Program and Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS). The CPP is funded through employer/employee contributions and typically starts at age 65 (the age is rising), but a person can apply at age 60 for a reduced beneﬁt. The maximum monthly beneﬁt is now $987. The OAS, funded from government general revenue, pays qualiﬁed retired persons and now starts at age 65, though a clawback applies depending on income levels. The GIS pays beneﬁts to very low-income Canadians; if your only sources of income in retirement are the CPP and OAS, you likely qualify for the GIS. The main difference in our systems is the amount payable in the U.S. It is said to be higher than the government can now afford, and changes are forecast. The Canadian systems, however, are now said to be more sustainable.

Paying the small price
moment of silence is not too big a price to pay. It’s easily less a price than that paid by those for whom Remembrance Day is observed each year. It’s far less than the price paid by those who are commemorated by cenotaphs across the country. It’s certainly far less a price than the one paid by those whose names are engraved on thousands upon thousands of crosses and stone markers in Belgium and Holland and France and throughout most of Western Europe. A moment of silence can’t be compared with the “ultimate price.” And it doesn’t compare to those who return, some of them broken in body, some broken in spirit, and all with memories that they’d rather forget. For them — and for all those whose personal memories were obliterated on battlefields where such high prices are always exacted — we need to remember. For them and for ourselves. Taking a moment out of the day on Nov. 11 to honour the memories of those who died in war on our behalf, as well as for those who risked death to preserve freedom and a better way of life, is more than an appreciation for the incredible sacrifices they made. As important as it is to ensure that veterans and survivors understand that their sacrifices are not overlooked as insignificant by those of us who are the recipients of the world they built, it is also important that we all remember what was sacrificed — and how steep a price that was paid — so that there is a common understanding that no such price should be paid again. Take in one of this weekend’s Remembrance Day ceremonies. Some folks prefer to remember in solitude as well as silence, and that is understandable. But there is also a purpose in sharing. Lest we forget.
Museum full of old news The Editor, Okay, think fast. Who finished first in the women’s FIS rankings for alpine skiing in 2012? Who was the men’s figure skating champion in 2012? Where were the two Winter Olympics preceding Vancouver held? Can’t answer some of these questions? That’s because outside of a few weeks every two years, no one pays much attention to the Olympics. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Olympics and I think Richmond has a lot to offer tourists. I just don’t think an Olympic museum is one of those things. The Museum of Vancouver is that city’s repository for all things Olympic and the BC Sports Hall of Fame has items connected with specific athletes, yet neither of them seem to think a whole museum should be devoted to the subject. I’m not sure why we think we can pull off something no one else in any other former Olympic city has. I know that if I visited Torino or Salt Lake City (the answer to the third question above) or their respective suburbs, I wouldn’t bother to go to a museum devoted to their past Olympic party. Richmond has much to offer and I think $6 million could be so much better spent than by profiling something that is already old news. (By the way, answers to questions 1 and 2: Lindsey Vonn and Patrick Chan respectively.) Tracy Cromwell Richmond

U.S. has democratic kinks to iron Hi, America! Big night for you the other night. You spent about $6 billion on an election, you have the same president, but a whole pile of new senators and congress-folk, you passed or didn’t pass some laws, and now everyone is a bit groggy, whether from victory toasted or sorrows drowned. America, you’re the longest lived representative democracy on the planet. You pretty much started this whole thing where we don’t get hereditary tyrants and feudal lords telling us what to do. But. You still have a few kinks to work out of the process. Since we’re outsiders up here in Canada, we can see a little clearer that there are different ways you could be doing things, options you have not explored. Yes, yes, you’re exceptional, a special and unique snowflake among the nations of the world. That’s what every mom says about her kid, even when he’s eating paste. So let’s get to a few places where you could use some work. ❚ Voting machines: Yay, technology! It’s so awesome that you can watch live-Tweet Transformers 3 on your iPad, but do you really need a machine to cast a ballot? Here in Canada, our federal election process uses a highly advanced
Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH
system, involving an inksaturated fibrous core wrapped in an ergonomic cylindrical grip, which inscribes the voter’s choice on a planar surface composed of processed cellulose with a print-based display function. Yeah, when you say it that way, pen and paper sounds way more impressive. Given that you have tried punch cards (dangling chads) and a number of Vegas-style electronic voting machines, this may seem simplistic. But a pencil or pen seldom registers a vote for Candidate A as one for Candidate B, as the infamous Obama-votecounted-for-Romney video seems to show. In addition, having a physical ballot makes recounts easier. ❚ Long lines at the polls: Really, America? Really? The richest and most powerful country on Earth can’t scrape together a few bucks to put another half dozen people in a church basement somewhere to cut down on waits up to four hours long? I don’t even have a real suggestion here, since it’s obvious that you should
just spend more money. Not even that much; it’s pretty cheap to hire people for a couple of shifts, every four years. I’m pretty sure that counts as part time, and you won’t have to pay them benefits. ❚ Gerrymandering: We used to have this problem in Canada, too. We let politicians re-draw our electoral boundaries, and boy was that a bad idea. They invariably came up with these crazy shapes that would carve the land into safe fiefdoms for as many of their friends as possible. I know that some U.S. states are cracking down, and doing what so many other countries have done: put this task in the hands of dull, dull, non-partisan bureaucrats and ex-judges. But this should really be happening nation-wide, and soon. ❚ Election spending: Last one here. Cap the spending. Just put some limits on it. Yes, free speech, etc., but in a country as big as the United States, where there are huge special interest groups, massive corporations, and wealthy loons, the people with the money drown out the voices of the people without money. Whether you take any of this advice or not, I’m looking forward to the show in four years. Matthew Claxton is a reporter for the Langley Advance.

Letters Cohen report paints dismal picture
The Editor, The Cohen Commission Report was recently tabled in the House of Commons. This report paints an incredibly dismal picture of the Conservative government’s handling not only of British Columbia’s iconic sockeye salmon, but all of Canada’s fisheries. On top of Justice Cohen’s 75 recommendations to improve the chances for sockeye survival, he also dedicates much of his report lamenting the recent decision by the Conservatives to gut the protection of fish habitat from the Fisheries Act in their spring omnibus budget bill. The Fisheries Act changes are made all the more serious considering how much of the Cohen Report is dedicated to the importance of improving rather than eliminating the protection of fish habitat in order to ensure the future survival of the sockeye. Justice Cohen states that “if current trends persist, there will be a significant decline in the productive capacity of Fraser River sockeye habitat.” If the Conservative government does not immediately change course, current trends will not only persist, they will accelerate. This government has not just eliminated federal protection of fish habitat, they have fired one third of British Columbia’s habitat protection staff, and many more across the country. According to Justice Cohen, some of the most harmful environmental effects on the sockeye are contaminants and algal blooms. Much of the research in these areas was done
by DFO’s Contaminants Program and at the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) in northwestern Ontario, yet these programs have been axed by the Harper Conservatives. Eliminating the contaminants program involved firing 75 DFO scientists, many of whom were based at the Institute of Ocean Sciences in Victoria. I recently moved a motion in the House of Commons Committee on Fisheries and Oceans to study the Cohen Report and bring Justice Cohen forward as a witness. Unfortunately, the Conservatives moved the meeting in secret and my motion is no longer on the agenda. This kind of thing is becoming far too common in Ottawa. There are many serious factors that need to be addressed to ensure a positive future for all of Canada’s fisheries, including the iconic sockeye. Action must be taken and strong decisions must be made. The Conservatives can start by reversing their changes to the Fisheries Act and their devastating cuts to DFO such as the contaminants program and the ELA. They must commit to begin implementing the recommendations found in Justice Cohen’s report. If these changes do not take place, the blindly ideological path this government has taken since they achieved majority status will prove disastrous for the sockeye, for fish habitat, for our environment, and for all of Canada’s fisheries.

Here is a short, simple and hopefully informative look into what, why and how Diwali is celebrated by most South Asians in the Lower Mainland area. Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, usually falls in either October or November as its date is based on the Hindu lunar calendar. This year, Diwali was celebrated on the Nov. 13th of the Roman calendar. Diwali is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists and is an important celebration as it celebrates victory of good over evil and light over darkness. Diyas are lit to ward off evil and to usher in goodness with light. Followers of each religion go to their respective place of worship to pray and light the diyas on this holy night. What are diyas? Diyas are small shallow receptacles made of clay that hold purified butter, which in turn fuels the cotton wick within. Lit diyas are laid in a row around the perimeter of one’s home as well as in front of the altar, if one has an altar at home. There are many different legends as to how and why a particular area in India celebrates Diwali. The following is a brief version of a very long story of how and why northern Hindus celebrate Diwali.
In north India, Hindus follow the legend of Lord Rama and his wife Sita’s return home after 14 years in exile and also of Lord Rama’s epic battle with the demon King Rawan, whom he kills. The people of Ayodha, home of Lord Rama, were so excited to hear that their beloved future king was coming home that they lit the way for him and his wife Sita with diyas. In Hindu custom it is common to leave a few lights on in the home all night to ward off evil and to welcome the Goddess Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, to come bless the home. Sikhs celebrate Diwali because their sixth guru, Guru Har Govind, was released from captivity. He had been prisoned by a Mogul emperor. After his release, Guru Har Govind went straight to the foremost Sikh holy temple, Harmandir Sahib, also known as the Golden Temple, in Amritsar to pray. Followers lit diyas to celebrate their guru’s homecoming. Other than lighting the diyas, Diwali celebrators take this opportunity to dress up, exchange gifts with family and friends, indulge in yummy goodies and basically have a grand time, similar to celebrating Christmas. — Surrey Now

A Richmond TV production company looks set to capture the attention of millions of Asian TV viewers. Sayson Productions, based out of Blundell Centre, has managed to secure its West Coast Adventures show on Hong Kong-based TV channel TVB8, which boasts 25 million subscribers. Viewers across China, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia and even parts of Australia and New Zealand will see the very best of B.C. through the travel TV series. Beginning today (Nov. 9), TVB8 will be broadcasting the weekly show during prime time to its millions of viewers. “I believe that we’re the very first travel series that is entirely about British Columbia to be airing in China,” said Sayson’s owner/operator Danny Sayson, a 1988 Richmond High grad. West Coast Adventures is about travel and adventure in B.C.’s outdoors, with highlights from the show including playing with the dolphins at the Vancouver Aquarium, mountain climbing to the summit of Whistler, grizzly bear watching and snorkelling with the salmon in Bella Coola and sturgeon fishing in the Fraser Canyon. There are also scenes of humpback whale watching in Prince Rupert, swimming with the seals in Nanaimo, white water rafting in Lytton, airplane gliding in Hope and cruising from Vancouver to Alaska.

Danny Sayson, owner/operator of Sayson Productions, has high hopes for his West Coast Adventures travel show when it screens on a major Asian channel. After the show aired a couple of years ago in the U.S. and Canada, Sayson saw a huge potential in the Asian market. “When China granted Canada

IS THIS A GOOD TIME TO BUY OR SELL A HOME? BCREA - BC HOME SALES FORECAST TO GROW IN 2013
BCREA 2012 4th Quarter Housing Forecast. Chief Economist, Cameron Muir is quoted as saying, “while the average MLS® residential price is forecast to decline 7.6 per cent to $518,600 this year, this change is largely the result of luxury home sales returning to more normal levels after an unusually active 2011.” “In addition, the Lower Mainland’s share of provincial home sales is expected to decline to 57 per cent this year from 62 per cent in 2011. The average MLS® residential price in BC is forecast to edge up 0.7 per cent to $522,000 in 2013. An expanding population, strong full-time employment growth and persistent low mortgage interest rates are expected to bolster housing demand in the months ahead,” added Mr. Muir. See the full articles at www.bcrea.bc.ca
to a Chinese speaking audience, Sayson had to have the entire series meticulously remixed and dubbed into Mandarin. “I’ve always been passionate about travel, the outdoors and videography,” he added. “To be able to produce a series about my home province, and then be able to share it with millions of people around the world is definitely one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had thus far in my career.” As for the future, Sayson is still marketing his B.C. travel series to other broadcasters around the world, with interest from stations in India, Italy and Thailand. Canadian residents who missed the series during its local broadcast run can still watch episodes at www.westcoastadventurestv.com.
Continued from page 11 “Sure enough, in 2011, China surpassed Japan as the biggest source of visitors from Asia to British Columbia. The number of entries from the Chinese mainland rose 468 per cent from 25,000 in 1996 to 139,000 by 2011.” Sayson then partnered with Canamedia, a distributor based in Toronto who markets TV programs worldwide. Soon after, the series was purchased by TVB8, a popular lifestyle and entertainment pay-tv channel which has an estimated broadcast reach of nearly 25 million viewers in Asia. “It’s amazing to me how a pay-TV channel in China can have an audience size that nearly equals the entire population of Canada,” said Sayson.

desirable quality — rather than nouns specifying the activity carried out there. Sometimes they called it a “privato,” like the English term privy. It was also known as a “comodo,” which means convenient. “Necessario,” necessary, was another word they used for it. Occasionally they referred to it as a “destro,” meaning dextrous, which puzzled me until I noticed on 16th-century architectural plans that the “destro” was often located in the cramped space beneath a stair, where dexterity was clearly needed. So what IS the proper name for the bathroom, restroom, washroom, latrine, lavatory, toilet, john, jakes, powder room, gents, ladies, privy, loo, etc.? It is water closet (abbreviated w.c.), a name first documented in 1755. The water closet (a forerunner of which — the “Ajax” — was invented by Queen Elizabeth I’s godson in 1596) owes its existence to an eighteenth-century breakthrough in plumbing technology, and it is truly convenient, certainly necessary, though it sometimes requires dextrous manipulation (followed by a call to the plumber).

One of our oldest war vets remembered BY YVONNE ROBERTSON
Judy Assoon remembers her family sitting around the dinner table as she and her brother begged their father to tell them one of his favourite war stories. On a mission where he had to bring planes back from England to Canada, John MacCormac, a British pilot, thought it would be amusing to give the civilians a bit of a scare. Instead of flying high above a bridge in Montreal, he decided to go under the bridge. “Oh, he got called in for that one,” said Assoon, now 71, her eyes watering from laughter. “But they were just little boys fighting this war, most under 30, they still had lots of time to grow. So they would find ways to get into mischief like that. We loved that story.” At the age of 99, just three months

shy of 100, MacCormac passed away last month following a bout of pneumonia. He was possibly the oldest World War II veteran living in Richmond. He joined the Royal Air Force in 1939 and because of his skill was soon promoted to train pilots, stationed first in northern Saskatchewan. At the age of two, Assoon and her family crossed the Atlantic as part of a convoy to settle in Canada, while her father took his first station at North Battleford. Surrounded by combat, one boat went down out of the four. Like many veterans, MacCormac, awarded the Air Force Cross, talked little about his experiences during the war, seeing it as a job that needed to be done. “They did the job, then moved on,” said Assoon. “But he’d regale us with the more amusing stories. There was one time when Aussie officers weren’t happy with their quarters on the

base, so they began to break the windows. Well, Dad didn’t stand for that. He made them measure the windows, go into town and buy some new ones before they were fed.” As a trainer and pilot, MacCormac didn’t see too much of the on-theground horrors, but Assoon remembers times he would come back shaken up after losing a colleague or best friend. This Sunday, she plans to continue the tradition she had with her parents, though both are now deceased, honouring those who served the country during war. They would go to the ceremony in Richmond and then for lunch. However, Assoon wasn’t always as supportive of Remembrance Day ceremonies as she is now. As a selfdescribed “peacenik” in the ’70s, each ceremony brought feelings of discomfort, as she believed it glorified the war. see Father page 16

Remembrance Day Father: Was a true patriarch Continued from page 15 It wasn’t until she was a high school counsellor at StevestonLondon secondary and watched her two sons attend school ceremonies that she realized what the day was really about. “I was just uninformed back then,” said Assoon. “It’s really about honouring and respecting the sacrifice of these young, young people during this horrific war. It’s about educating us and helping us prevent past mistakes.” By the end of the war, MacCormac was acting commanding officer in Ontario and presented the last pair of wings under the Commonwealth Air Training Program. His family then settled in western Canada, and in Richmond since the late 1960s. To Assoon, he taught her most about the value of family. The skilled bridge player dedicated himself to them, not wanting to “hang around old people who made him feel old, but to hang around family who made him feel loved.” “He was solid, strong and generous, a true patriarch,” said Assoon. “We wouldn’t have dinner until we were all together, so we’re feeling a little lost without our rudder.”

The scene was one of paramount celebration. Tanks paraded with trucks throughout the streets of the southern Netherlands. Kids hopped on top in ecstasy, as soldiers handed out chocolates. It was the fall of 1944, and the region had just been liberated from German occupation. Sixty or 70 per cent of the allied forces in the Netherlands were Canadian and left such an impression on a nine-year-old Tony Spierings that he vowed to move to Canada to find out more about his freedom fighters. “I had to find out who these people were,” said Spierings, who will be turning 76. “They would be quartered in our homes and I remember them being so generous. It was quite sentimental when they left because we had gotten quite close.” Spierings shared his stories of both joy and horror with animated hands and wide eyes. Coming to Canada wasn’t easy for him. He first had to serve three years in the Dutch army until he was 21. He then realized the Canadian government wasn’t taking in any more immigrants of his trade. Undeterred, Spierings picked up a new one. He spent six months in farm school, where he worked in minus 10-degree weather to till the land and milk the cows, all the while driven by his curiosity about
Canadians. He finally got here and is now the youth liaison and poppy fund vice chair for the Richmond Royal Canadian Legion. He spoke with 609 air cadets at Walter Lee School Wednesday evening about his experiences as a child during the Second World War. “We need to do this to remind people what the war was all about,” said Spierings. “We have to keep the memory alive so that we can avoid it from happening again. Kids today need to know who fought for their freedom.” Because of NATO, Spierings has been recognized as a veteran in Canada as well, due to his service with the Dutch military. He dons his legion uniform as a way of giving back to the country that liberated his own. From going to a potato field in minus six-degree weather to dig up frozen potatoes by hand, to watching a German soldier beat a dog to death for no particular reason, to losing 17 of his schoolmates, Spierings told his most horrific stories to the cadets. “The V-1 was the most terrifying experience,” he said. “It was the first German rocket which was very noisy and unreliable. It would stutter in the sky and when aimed for England, 75 per cent of them landed in the Netherlands. So we’d always here the noise of it, but never knew where it would land.” see Flesh page 17

ThePulse We’ve got our ﬁnger on it Mounties bag top award BY A LAN C AMPBELL
Constables Jagmeet Dandiwal (left) and Harbir Sangha show off their Justice Awards after a ceremony last week.
Two Richmond Mounties have been handed a prestigious award for their work in promoting public safety and crime prevention. Constables Jagmeet Dandiwal and Harbir Sangha received this year’s Ministry of Justice Community Safety & Crime Prevention Media Award for their efforts in programs delivered to the Punjabi and South Asian communities. The officers were honoured last Friday at the BC Crime Prevention Association’s Symposium held in Burnaby. Since June 2011, the Dandiwal and Sangha have been appearing, on their own time, regularly on Sher-E-Punjab Radio AM 1550’s popular show Lok Sath with host Harjit Singh Gill. The talk show is conducted in the Punjabi language and is broadcasted live to thousands of listeners in B.C. and parts of the U.S. It’s also broadcasted live on the Internet and is, apparently, very well received among the Punjabi speaking communities throughout the world. “We began this ... to engage the Punjabi and South Asian communities,” said Dandiwal. “Policing is about building partnerships with the community and doing
everything we can to keep people safe. “We also wanted to dispel police-related stereotypes within the community in order to strengthen our relationship with the Punjabi community.” Both officers are both born and raised in India and, as such, offer a very unique perspective to listeners. Dandiwal immigrated to Canada in 2001 at the age of 19, completed his honours degree in psychology from Kwantlen and joined the RCMP in 2007. Sangha immigrated to Canada in 2000 at the age of 20, completed his engineering certification from BCIT, became an auxiliary constable with the Surrey RCMP in 2005 and was sworn in as a regular member in 2008. The focus of each radio show has been crime prevention with an emphasis on the various programs and initiatives going on at the Richmond detachment. Topics of discussion have included youth gangs, bullying, identity theft, and pedestrian safety, to name a few. “This initiative is unique to the Richmond RCMP. Nothing like this exists anywhere in the Lower Mainland,” said Cpl. Sherrdean Turley, media relations officer for Richmond. “It is, however, indicative of the high level of commitment and dedication that RCMP officers possess across Canada.” CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

City urges businesses to set up electric stations BY ALAN CAMPBELL
The City of Richmond is encouraging local businesses to apply for the electric vehicle charging station incentive program. As the city moves closer to setting up 10 of its own charging stations to power electric vehicles, it’s hoped Richmond businesses will jump aboard to spread the network even further. A $4,000 incentive is being offered by the province through the BC Community Charging Infrastructure Fund. However, funding is only available for 75 businesses, and applications must be submitted by Nov. 30 to be considered.
In the meantime, Metro Vancouver and its member municipalities are holding free information sessions across the region to support businesses in accessing the incentives and introduce the technical support available to make installation simple. “Businesses that take the initiative to host an electric vehicle charging station can increase their business profile and show community leadership,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “Encouraging electric vehicle use is one way we can reduce the use of fossil fuels — a non-renewable source of energy and major contributor to climate change.” To educate local businesses about the program, workshops will be held:
❚ Nov. 14, 9 to 11 a.m. at the Metro Vancouver Head Office, 10th Floor Meeting Room, 5945 Kathleen Ave., Burnaby ❚ Nov. 15, 9 to 11 a.m. at the District of North Vancouver Municipal Hall Council Chambers, 355 West Queens Rd., North Vancouver ❚ Nov. 16, 9 to 11 a.m., at the Chuck Bailey Community Centre, 13458 - 107A Ave., Surrey ❚ Nov. 19, 9 to 11 a.m. at City Council Chambers and Foyer, 3000 Guildford Way, Coquitlam The sessions are one hour long and experts are available afterwards to answer questions. No registration is required. For more information on eligibility, costs
and how to apply for the incentive, visit www.metrovancouver.org/EVstation or contact Metro Vancouver at EVStation@metrovancouver.org or call 604-688-9769, ext 135. As part of the program, the City of Richmond had received funding to install 10 electric vehicle charging stations at five locations around the community. Once in place, these electric vehicle charging stations will become part of the network of charging stations around Metro Vancouver. The city has added about 30 hybrid vehicles to its municipal fleet and all five of its ice re-surfacing vehicles (Zambonis, for example) are electric.

Caravan remains best choice Special to the News
With a round of running changes under its hood and on its nose since the 2011
model year, the Dodge Grand Caravan returns for 2013 with only a few new features. It’s enough to keep the family hauler in its place as one of the best choices for car-

rying up to eight passengers — and to keeping them entertained along the way. The Grand Caravan’s the near-twin of the Chrysler Town & Country, save for some minor styling differences and feature content. Its real competition, in growing sales volumes, are the Japanese minivans — the well-mannered Honda Odyssey and the all-weathercapable Toyota Sienna. However, while those vans have much higher prices, the Grand Caravan stickers in a special edition at less than $20,000, with base prices capped at less than $30,000. The Grand Caravan stays true to the boxy styling theme that it’s worn for most of its life, save for the 19962007 model years. We liked those egg-shaped vans, but the functional look of today’s Dodge minivan plays out in some important ways that go a little deeper than sex appeal. Yes, it’s slab-sided, and relatively plain compared to the lightning-bolted Odyssey and the low-nosed Sienna, but the Grand Caravan has a very airy interior as a result of its upright styling, and very good outward visibility. The interior’s now up to grade, too — in 2011, Dodge replaced the plasticky cabin trim from the 2008-2010 model year with much more appealing textures, for a much better impression of quality. A single drivetrain configuration puts all Grand Caravans on performance par. The engine’s a 3.6-liter V-6, with 283 horsepower, coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission, with
power shipped to the front wheels only--all-wheel drive left the lineup after the 2007 model year. Smoother here than in most other Chrysler vehicles, the powertrain has just a touch of the V-6 groans, and an abundance of strong low — and mid-range power. Steering and ride aren’t too far off the mark set by the Honda and the leaner Nissan Quest, but the Grand Caravan feels mostly composed at speed, with an occasional bounce to its ride. Chrysler’s minivans are the most useful of all, and that’s a big factor in their high scores here at The Car Connection. Minivans are all about utility, and carrying the maximum cargo and number of people, which makes Chrysler’s fold-away second- and third-row seats a brilliant idea. The Nissan Quest used to have the same arrangement, but it’s abandoned the setup for a fold-away third-row seat and fixed second-row seats, while the Odyssey and Sienna have sliding, folddown second-row seats and fold-away third row seats. In the Grand Caravan, the seats fold flat into the floor, or stay in position, with infloor storage bins holding their place. To accommodate the disappearing act, the Chrysler seats are thinner and flatter--but we’ve never heard a kid complain about the seat comfort, and Costco boxes don’t exactly complain, either. The Grand Caravan’s third-row seat has a power-fold option, too, as do its side doors and its tailgate. Very good safety scores see Price range page 24

YVR confirms mall switch BY ALAN CAMPBELL
Vancouver Airport has decided to move its proposed designer outlet shopping centre into the shadow of a Canada Line station. The facility, being built in conjunction with UKbased luxury outlet firm McArthurGlen, will now be situated next to the Templeton station. YVR had originally planned to build the outlet centre off Russ Baker Way, next to BCIT and were still preparing the ground at the site as recently as two months ago. However, after receiving feedback from the local community, the airport decided to switch location, confirming the move on Tuesday. “The airport authority
and McArthurGlen have selected the Templeton site as the preferred location for the designer outlet centre,” said airport spokesperson Alana Lawrence. “Work done for site preparation at the Russ Baker Way location will be used for future commercial development, as designated in the airport’s 20-year master plan.” Shifting major retail to the proximity of rapid transit will sit well with the City of Richmond, which urged YVR to re-think its original proposal to build the shopping centre outside of the city centre core. Richmond’s City Centre Area Plan calls for development — retail and residential — to be densified in and around the city centre and next to rapid public transit.
Change clocks, change batteries
Time to test smoke alarms: Fire-rescue With the end of Daylight Savings time, Richmond FireRescue reminds people to test home smoke alarms and replace batteries if they are more than six months old. To ensure safety, Richmond Fire-Rescue recommends people perform a monthly smoke alarm test, by simply using the alarm’s test button. Also, remember to dust or vacuum the alarm. Replace the entire smoke alarm if it is more than 10 years old. Make sure everyone in your home understands the warning sound of the smoke alarm and knows how to respond.

Gawdin helps Team B.C. win Western Challenge
Richmond’s Glenn Gawdin had a leading role in Team B.C. winning gold for the very first time at the Western Canada U16 Challenge in Calgary. The tournament, now in its third year, sees 80 of the top prospects from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. battle it out for western Canadian supremacy. B.C. capped an unbeaten run with a dominating 9-3 victory over twotime defending champion Team Alberta on Sunday. Gawdin had a goal and two assists as B.C. pulled away with three unanswered goals in the second period after a wild opening 20 minutes produced a 6-3 lead. B.C. opened the tournament with a 4-3 shootout
win over Alberta. Gawdin had a pair of assists. He then earned player-of-thegame honours thanks to a two goals, including one shorthanded, in a 4-1 victory against Saskatchewan. B.C. then closed out roundrobin play with a 5-2 win over Manitoba to clinch a spot in the gold medal game. Gawdin was taken fifth overall by the Swift Current Broncos in last spring’s Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. The 15year-old forward now plays for the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League’s Vancouver Canadians after coming through Seafair Minor’s rep program. The Canadians had four others on the Team
B.C. roster — forwards Adam Musil, Justin Szeto, defenceman Ty Schultz and goaltender Taz Burman. The team was coached by Richmond native Ryan Weber while local resident Mitch Pinsky served a director of hockey operations. Even without five key players, the Canadians managed to win both their games last weekend against the North Island Silvertips. Goals from Seafair grad Austin Adamson and rookie Otis Goldman were all Greater Vancouver would need in a 2-1 game one victory. Game two was another tight affair with Alec Dawydiak, another Seafair grad, providing the differ-

Sports Alouettes Emry a finalist for pair of CFL awards
After battling post-concussion syndrome, Shea Emry has bounced back in a big way. The 26-year-old Richmond native has been recognized for his outstanding play at middle linebacker by being named a finalist for two CFL Outstanding Player Awards. Emry will be up against Calgary running back Jon Cornish for Top Canadian and Edmonton linebacker JC Sherrett for Top Defensive Player when the awards are handed out during Grey Cup Week in Toronto. Last season, Emry picked up his second concussion in two years in a game against Calgary in late August. He was slated to return to the line-up three weeks later by suffered a relapse. He didn’t feel himself again into well into 2012 training camp. “I didn’t know for sure that I would be able to play at the same level,” he said. “There was
mental stress for a while there, but now I feel better than ever. It’s been a blessing in disguise to have football taken away from me for a while. It got me to work on myself as a football player and as a human being.” The Vancouver College graduate tallied a team-high and career best 87 defensive tackles this season, including seven sacks, leaving him in fifth in the CFL in both categories respectively. He added seven tackles on special teams. Emry also scored his first career CFL touchdown this season, returning an interception 46 yards in a win over Toronto in Week 16, which helped the Alouettes clinch a home playoff game. He was named the league’s Canadian Player of the Week on two occasions this season. He was also named an Eastern Division all-star on Thursday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: A link evolves. The accent remains on secrets, research, sexual urges, investments, debt and partnership money, hidden meanings and health diagnoses, especially Monday/ Tuesday. Changes, commitments or break-offs you make will have magniﬁed consequences down the road. This is the month on which your life pivots. That said, don’t start anything new before Nov. 26. Deal with old or ongoing sexual, ﬁnancial and similar situations. (A former sexy one might return.) Relationships reach agreement Sunday. A mellow, loving mood ﬂows in Wednesday/Thursday. Be ambitious late week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Remember, start nothing before Nov. 26: stick with former or ongoing people, projects. That includes relationships, contracts, negotiations, relocation, dealings with the public and advertising – and agent contacts. In the meantime, a former relationship, relocation opportunity, negotiation, etc., might reappear (especially Monday/Tuesday). Trust your instincts on this – if this link was good “back then,” good again: if bad, bad again. Mysteries, opportunities and a sexy person ﬁll midweek. Love of a gentle kind ﬂows over you Friday/Saturday. Work, co-workers are pleasant. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new before Nov. 26 – especially in work, machinery, with dependents and health. DO NOT buy machinery. A former (incomplete) chore – or work role – might return (all month, but particularly Monday/Tuesday). Perhaps a repair must be redone. A former co-worker or lover might return – the lover’s not beneﬁcial. Sunday’s romantic: express your feelings. Relationships, opportunities and fresh horizons ﬁll Wednesday/ Thursday – but only leap if these are “old new” not brand new. Sexy urges and “ﬁnancial signiﬁcance” arrive Friday/Saturday – research, dig deep.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on romance, creative urges, beauty, charming children and speculative luck (all highlighted Monday/ Tuesday). But don’t start anything new in any zone. An old romance or former creative project might return – if so, judge it on its own merits. Why was it abandoned in the ﬁrst place? Sunday’s for home, kids – all’s ﬁne. Midweek brings chores, health matters (both lightly) – charge ahead in practical matters, dispose of piles of routine tasks. Relationships excite, opportunities surge, and cobwebs dissolve Friday/ Saturday. True love’s possible: but no one new. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing new before Nov. 26 – especially in areas of domesticity, real estate, children, security, pension programs, gardening and nutrition. (These are highlighted Monday/Tuesday, but pick up and march ahead with old, former projects – e.g., those stones you haven’t moved in the garden – or ongoing ones. Plant nothing, buy nothing signiﬁcant.) Wednesday/Thursday bring romantic notions, earthly beauty and pleasure. (But don’t ask someone new for a date.) Chores, health concerns and dependents ﬁll Friday/Saturday. If a former realty bargain resurfaces, hook it. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing new (and buy nothing signiﬁcant) before Nov. 26, especially in communications, travel, reports, paperwork, applications, distribution. In these, mistakes and delays can occur. An application submitted now will tend to be buried and forgotten by the recipient. Have a Plan B, re-check wallet, credit cards, supplies, itinerary, etc. Make a list before doing errands. Sunday favours you in money areas. Paperwork, travel and communications are highlighted Monday/Tuesday. Stick close to home, security position midweek. Romance, pleasure, “winning” Friday/Saturday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Money remains the top topic. Make as much as you can – without, however, starting new projects nor seeking new clients. (Clients gained before late November would become a real headache in future – not their fault!) Start nothing new or signiﬁcant before Nov. 26. Former money sources (or old bills you owe) are likely to resurface. Your talents shine Sunday. Money, earning, selling and sensual attractions highlight Monday/Tuesday. Do errands, travel, or communicate midweek – but watch mistakes; make a list. Head for home Friday/ Saturday: relax, repair home and relations. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and optimism remain high; others are attracted. But “effective” might be the missing quality, as you will ﬁnd it hard to advance ongoing ventures, and even harder to successfully start new ones. Stick to the old and ongoing until Nov. 26. A former (abandoned) ﬁnancial, investigative, sexual or health matter might return: if this was good then, it is now; if bad, bad now. Rest, contemplate Sunday. You impress others Monday/Tuesday. Chase money (not new money ventures) Wednesday/Thursday. Buy nothing important. Late week is busy but not hugely important. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Continue to rest, retreat, contemplate – be spiritual, charitable. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Instead, protect ongoing projects from mistakes, missed appointments, etc. A former acquaintance might reappear: this person might offer you some shelter or solace, but otherwise is not a good one for you to hang any hopes on, especially love hopes. Sunday’s for optimism and entertainment. Avoid competition Monday/Tuesday. Your energy and charisma return somewhat midweek – get things done! (But don’t start the new.) Chase money Friday/Saturday. Buy nothing important.

Nov. 11 - 17, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Instead, stay with ongoing projects, ventures and relationships, or welcome those that return from the past. A former ﬁne group of friends, a light, playful lover, or a past venture (it always made you feel hopeful) might reappear. Judge the former venture on its own merits. DON’T indulge in planning sessions now – even those returning from the past will fall into confusion. Be ambitious Sunday. Playfulness, optimism and social delights ﬁll Monday/Tuesday. Retreat midweek for a breather. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The accent remains on ambition, career, prestige relations, reputation and dealings with authorities, parents and the boss. Remain ambitious, but realize new starts are likely to go awry. Even ongoing situations hold some delays, mistakes and misunderstandings. Be gentle, humorous, and patient. Start nothing important before Nov. 26. Sunday’s wise, loving. That ambition stuff strikes Monday/Tuesday – all’s ﬁne, just DO NOT be fooled by money fantasies. A former career role or boss might return. Happiness visits you midweek! Retreat, rest, contemplate Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your mind floats to rarified levels this week, especially Monday/Tuesday. Legal, educational, far travel, cultural, love and intellectual pursuits fascinate you now. Remember: start nothing new before Nov. 26. You might stumble across something you wrote or filmed long ago. My advice: don’t resurrect it, as you could muddle its message even more. However, a chance to revisit a foreign shore, to visit your old campus, or speak with an old flame, should be grabbed. Sunday’s mysterious. Be ambitious midweek. Happiness, optimism and social joys arrive Friday/Saturday. email@example.com
