BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News

Richmond farmers and environmentalists opposing the dumping of waste materials on farmland took their protest to city hall Thursday afternoon. Forming a convoy of two tractors, several trucks, cars and bicycles, they hauled chunks of asphalt and rebar on the back of a farm wagon that have been deposited on farmland in the 9300-block of Finn Road. The group appealed to mayor Malcolm Brodie that a local bylaw be drawn up to stop the process they believe is contaminating productive soil. The land in dispute is owned by Canada Future Investments and operated by Bill Jones and Dave Sandhu, the dumped material is to be used to build a road across fields that will eventually be turned into a tree farm. Longtime local farmer Ray Galawan was leading a blockade protest that started Wednesday and shared in the common concerns of the size and positioning of the proposed road.

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

A man tried to access disputed land but was stopped by a farmers’ blockade Wednesday. Ray Galawan, above, organized the blockade to protest dumping on farm land.

It measures approximately 30-feet wide cutting diagonally through the farmland. He said he has tried every avenue to stop the dumping. “A week ago, I was told there was going to be changes done here by the agrologist. Six days have gone by and nothing has changed,” said Galawan, who has lived and worked in the area for several decades. “There was an emergency meeting called Monday night at city hall. I heard they were going to come down here with an official stop-order notice yesterday. This did not happen.” Galawan said his concern is that if the tree farm isn’t successful, the farmland full of first-class soil will be rendered useless. He made a trip to the city bylaw office asking if there was a bylaw regulating the dumping of concrete on agricultural land and was told there wasn’t one. Fellow farmer Bob Featherstone’s father used to own the large 34-acre property and farmed on it for almost 60 years. “I think if my dad had a chance to come back for one day, it would kill him all over again to see what’s happening,” said Featherstone, 69. “They’re bringing in chunks of concrete the size of bathtubs, burying it out

there, now they’re putting chunks of blacktop on top which is tar and oil. “Once that’s leeched into the farmland, it’s done forever so we’re just trying to protest to make them stop it.” Thomas Loo, compliance and enforcement officer with the Agricultural Land Commission, also paid a visit to the site on Wednesday to assess the situation. He said regulation is difficult because it’s permitted use. “I’m not sure if I have any legal clout to issue an order of cease and desist because it’s not technically a contravention, however I think if I can get them to stop bringing stuff in and to do the road until we sort of resolve this issue then that’s something I’d like to at least propose,” said Loo, adding he hopes this will happen within a week’s time. see Jones page 4

Four people sent to hospital after gunfire at Riverside hall

The Richmond News

Richmond RCMP have a suspect in custody following a shooting Wednesday night at the Riverside Banquet Hall that sent four people to hospital. Police apprehended the suspect without incident not far from the banquet hall at 14500 River Rd. roughly five minutes after arriving on scene. Three of the shooting victims were rushed to Vancouver General Hospital and another to Richmond Hospital with varying degrees of injury from minor to critical. They were part of a group attending a union gathering of about 150 people for longshoremen who had just joined the union, according to one of the managers of the hall who refused to identify himself. Early reports also said the event was a birthday celebration. “It is the belief of the investigators that this is a targeted event,” said RCMP Insp. Bryon Massie who addressed media at the scene late Wednesday evening. “There is no information … to suggest that this is related to any of the events that have occurred

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Richmond RCMP take pictures of licence plates at a blockade at the corner of River and No. 6 roads to identify vehicles leaving the scene after a single shooter opened fire at the Riverside Banquet Hall Wednesday night. over the Lower Mainland in the last week.” Those attending the Wednesday night event were taken by transit bus to RCMP headquarters for questioning. A police roadblock along River Road kept traffic away from the scene until Thursday morning as

investigators combed the area. RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Peter Thiessen said at a press conference outside the banquet hall later in the day that they had yet to determine a motive for the shooting. This is not the first time the banquet hall has been the scene of gun violence.

Gangster Kuljit (Kelly) Buttar was gunned down at a wedding there on Dec. 22, 2001. Four others were wounded in the spray of bullets at the hall. Several dozen off-duty Richmond RCMP officers and one off-duty paramedic were having their annual Christmas party just above where that shooting took place. “We were in another part of the building when shots rang out below,” Thiessen — then a constable — told The Vancouver Sun in 2001. Officers, many wearing evening wear, rushed downstairs and provided first aid to those shot, Thiessen said. “We saw lots of blood and lots of hysterical people,” he said. “We went from a Christmas-party mode to active police work in a split second. “Our members reacted quickly. We were responsible for saving lives.... We were concerned for our safety. We weren’t sure if these people were going to come back.” — with a file from the Vancouver Sun

Continued from page 1 Loo said there isn’t enough evidence either way to validate the effects of asphalt on soil. “Every road in the province is built with this stuff,” he said. “You get more oil coming off badly maintained vehicles and storm runoff. “When I talked to the Ministry of Environment they haven’t come out and said ‘this is a problem.’” Jones, who leases and operates the site, called the blockade “an exercise in futility.” “We were doing nothing wrong,” said Jones. “We may be forced to get a legal opinion on what the next course of action is.” He added that both he and Sandhu are farmers and not soil poisoners, and the large chunks of concrete will be used for a road base. A wide road is necessary to accommodate large fill trucks carrying soil

Law: Received threats about bid Continued from page 3 growing multicultural communities.” According to the BC Liberal Party’s press release, Richmond school trustee Grace Tsang decided not to pursue the nomination for the Richmond Centre riding. Instead, she accepted an appointment to serve in the capacity as co-chair of the premier’s Chinese Advisory Committee. “I have always been deeply committed to serving my community and my main interest is public service,” said Tsang in the release. “I’m pleased to be able to support and serve our province while continuing to

serve Richmond as a school trustee. I know what Teresa brings to the table and I plan to fully support her in her efforts in her bid for upcoming election.” RCMP officer Gary Law had also expressed interest in representing the BC Liberals in Richmond Centre, but had yet to receive approval as a candidate from the party. Earlier this month, Law said he had received threats about his bid shortly after approaching Liberal offcials to be considered. Today, (Friday) he was expected to hold a news conference to discuss the situation.

FIRE-RESCUE

Notoriously stinky fruit evacuates Yaohan Centre ‘Cultural misunderstanding’ results in 911 call when customer mistakes smell of durian fruit for gas leak BY PHILIP RAPHAEL Special to the News

An exotic fruit with a stinky reputation forced the brief evacuation of Yaohan Centre mall Monday evening. According to Richmond Fire Rescue, the mall had to be cleared at around 5 p.m. following reports of what was initially thought to be a gas leak wafting through the 22,000-square-foot shopping centre. Mall manager Allan Ho said a customer visiting the mall called 911 after noticing a foul smell. Tim Wilkinson, Deputy Chief of Operations for Richmond Fire Rescue, said after fire crews arrived at the scene they scoured the building to try and locate the source of the smell — which, according to Wilkinson, resembled sweaty sports socks that had been stuffed inside a gym bag for a prolonged period of time — and after ruling out any gas sources finally narrowed it down to the Osaka supermarket selling fresh durian fruit in its produce department. Native to Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia, the fruit, with its trademark spiky exterior, has a well-known reputa-

Yoahan Centre mall was evacuated for about an hour Monday when what was initially thought to be a gas leak turned out to be the smell of durian fruit, which is known for its malodourous properties, being sold at Osaka supermarket. tion for its pungent smell. While it’s referred as the “king of

fruits” for its custard-like, almond-flavoured flesh, it’s the smell that can put

many people off, even when its husk remains intact. Apart from having an offending smell, the fruit posed no health concerns and once removed from the store, the air began to clear and shoppers were allowed to return to the mall, Wilkinson said. In total, the building was vacated for about an hour. Mall manager Ho said he chalked the incident up to a “cultural misunderstanding” since the customer calling in the 911 alert was non-Asian and likely had never smelled durian fruit before and mistook it as a gas leak. Ho added, this is not the first time Osaka has stocked its produce section with durian fruit, but it was the first time it had raised such an alarm. The evacuation, although brief, caused a significant disruption for the 78 stores, their staff and clients as most had to wait outside in the chilly parking lot until the all clear was given. Ho said he was not sure if Osaka had planned to bring in more fresh durian fruit in the future—it can also be sold frozen. “I hope not,” he said laughing.

Lions roar for environment

BC Lions Jason Arakgi and Jon Hameister-Ries lit up the faces of James Thompson elementary students Wednesday afternoon. The two football players visited the school to show their support for the FortisBC Energy Champions program, which emphasizes the importance of environmental responsibility for children in kindergarten through to Grade 7. The entire school filled the walls of the gymnasium to listen to the presentation by the Lions players. Arakgi and HameisterReis had the kids participate in various activities such as partnering up and running the length of the gymnasium to building a life-sized pie chart with home power percentages. In its third season last

year, the initiative visited 75 elementary schools throughout the province, inspiring more than 22,000 students to play an active role in reducing their environmental footprint. Arakgi and HameisterRies, along with a few other Lions, visited several Metro Vancouver schools this week to promote both the FortisBC Energy Champions and the Be More Than a Bystander programs. The latter, applying to secondary school students, encourages people to break the silence surrounding violence against women and girls. This week’s visits marked the first in a series of presentations where Lions players will speak to students in Grades 8 through 12 about healthy, respectful relationships.

A life and death gamble

Y

ou will never hear a word of criticism from Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue volunteers against the federal government that grudgingly pays to gas their boats. Collectively and individually, they have remained absolutely professional and kept their mouths shut as the cost-cutting Conservatives moved to close the Kitsilano Canadian Coast Guard rescue station last year. Yet they expect their call-outs could double. One senses that they look forward to the challenge and we are sure that they will perform ably. The fact remains that the volunteer nature of the organization means that the launching of their rescue boats is not instantaneous. On-call crew members have to leave their jobs and muster at their lifeboats first. The Tories appear to believe that moving the Howe Sound crew to the Lynnwood marina and adding a rigidhulled Zodiac staffed by a coxswain and student volunteers at Discovery Point will make up for the Kits closure. We’re not so sure. The additional boat at Discovery Point will still have to circumnavigate Stanley Park to respond to English Bay distress calls and it won’t be operational in winter months — a time when the coast guard estimated it responded to between 50 and 65 life-at-risk calls. So, that leaves anyone in the water at the time it is coldest waiting to see whether they will be rescued by on-call North Shore volunteers or the Sea Island Canadian Coast Guard some 30 minutes away. That’s a life and death gamble for the sake of $700,000 a year.

CHOICE WORDS

Niqab cultural, not religious The Editor, Re: “Justice shoudn’t defend niqab,” Letters, Jan. 16. It is amazing that The Canadian Supreme Court is ignorant of the fact that the wearing of the niqab, burka, etc., by Muslim women is not a religious dictate, but one made by men to subjugate women and enslave them making them nonentities. It is an ethnic cultural issue, not religious. I was aghast when I read the decision by the Supreme Court and could not believe that this was happening in Canada. As Alan Haliday rightly says in his letter, permitting a crucial witness to cover her face denies the accused his right to a free and fair trial. I cannot believe that the Supreme Court (based on incorrect information) has given a judge the authority to subvert justice. Perhaps, the case should be moved to a country where women are forced to cover their faces and subverting justice is a daily affair. Women are as tempted as men are when they see something desirable, why are Muslim men not covering their faces so as not to tempt women? Or is this a one-way street where men make the rules and women have to abide by them, whether they like it or not? Glen Heredia Richmond

Two wrongs make a right in Florida

When you see words like weird, disturbing, or oddball, you can be sure that the word Florida is not far off. If the 50 states were kids in elementary school, Florida would be the one who would eat a dead slug for a nickel. This week’s piece of state-wide performance art/desperate attention seeking is the 2013 Python Challenge. Florida is home to many snakes, but not all of them belong there. Burmese pythons, for example, are (you may have guessed this part) from Burma. How did they get to Florida? It’s usually a threestep process: 1) “Ooooh, look at the cute little baby snake! I’ll wear it around my neck and look like an awesome badass!” 2) “Aaaaaagggghhh! It’s strangling me again and the cost of mice is driving me crazy!” 3) “Throw it in the bushes, it’ll be fine.” In fact, Burmese pythons are doing fine in Florida. They’re doing so fine that they’re in danger of devouring all the native species of birds, mammals and reptiles that live in the Everglades. So the Python Challenge is not so much an effort to educate the public, as it is the equivalent of putting out a bounty on the squiggly, little reptiles. Florida is letting anyone who gives them $25 and takes a 30-minute course in snake identification go

hunting in four wildlife parks. And there are fabulous prizes to be won! The grand prize is $1,500 for the most dead pythons, while there’s a runner-up prize of $1,000 for the biggest python. Basically, they’ve defictionalized the “Whacking Day” episode of The Simpsons. But with less Barry White music. The sad thing is. I can’t think of a better way to go about it. Really, what are people good at? Well, we’re really good at introducing exotic animals to places where they don’t belong. How do you think zebra mussels wound up in the Great Lakes, or why there’s now a thriving colony of snow monkeys in your local IKEA? We’re also good at wiping out species entirely. You can thank 17th century sailors for pre-emptively putting a halt to any dodo infestations around here! Seen any dodos getting into your trash, scaring your cat, pooping in your public parks? No, you have not. Thanks, hungry Dutch mariners! What we need to do is harness our impulse to kill everything good and pure,

and use it to counter our urge to air-drop random animals into every environment we encounter. Yes, we’re going to wipe out some species over the next few years. Shouldn’t we wipe out the species that we’re allowing to wreak havoc in the wrong environments? Finally, two wrongs really can make a right! The Python Challenge plays to some of the worst human impulses. Kill things! Make a pile of them! Get rewards for the biggest pile! In this case, it actually helps that pythons are considered scary. For this type of project to work with any other animal or plants, we’re going to have to re-name a few things. From now on, Australian rabbits are to be known as killer bucktoothed fangmonsters. Purple loosestrife will be known as the Devil’s ditchweed, and Scotch broom will be known as Scotch toxic death cloud emitter. American bullfrogs will be known as the Toronto Maple Leafs. I’ll even put my money where my mouth is. I’ll put up $50 for a prize for any group or organization that can make the heaviest pile of purple loosestrife. I’ll get back to you on the when and where, and maybe we can get the Devil’s ditchweed challenge up and running. Matthew Claxton writes for the Langley Advance.

RCMP needs change, but still our best option The next promising thing I saw was the appointments of the new Commissioner Robert Paulson and Deputy Commissioner Craig Callens, CO of E Division. I have since communicated with each of them, and on July 16, 2012, I met with two inspectors, and we spoke for several hours. Upon the specific request of Deputy Commissioner Callens, they were provided copies of the two presentations I had made to Justice Oppal in 1993. On Nov. 26, I received a thank-you letter from

Commissioner Paulson, wherein he gave to me the following assurances: “I want to assure you that I am working diligently to ensure that our internal processes and policies support the hard-working and honest members of the Force, and provide for appropriate disciplinary measures for those members who demonstrate unsatisfactory behaviour. “I am proud of the men and women of the RCMP, and I am committed to resolving this situation and returning the focus to our critical work of keeping Canadians safe.”

BC SERVICES CARD Starting February 15, 2013, British Columbians between the ages 19 to 74 will be required to re-enroll into the Medical Services Plan. The purpose of this re-enrollment is to improve patient safety and reduce fraudulent use of MSP CareCards. Our government first announced plans to roll-out a replacement to the current CareCard in May 2011, when amendments to the Medicare Protection Act were introduced. British Columbians will be given the choice to receive the new stand-alone BC Services Card or have their driver’s license indicate they are enrolled in MSP. The BC Services Card will be more secure than the current CareCard as it will include features such as a photograph, anti-forgery measures, and an expiry date. The new card will help ensure patient safety by allowing health providers to easily confirm the person presenting for service is the cardholder. This helps ensure that your patient record does not get compromised with someone else’s medical data. Having an accurate medi-

cal record means that health providers can give you the best level of care possible and improve patient safety for every British Columbian. In the future, government anticipates the new BC Services Card will provide in-person and online access to other provincial government services. Proving your identity is required for many day-to-day activities like completing an application, cashing a cheque, renting an apartment, or opening a bank account. British Columbians generally need government-issued ID to do these things. Security features on the new card will make it significantly more difficult to share and counterfeit. The BC Services Card includes an expiry date, photo and will require a beneficiary to appear inperson to prove their eligibility for BC health services. To learn more about the new BC Services Card, visit: www.bcservicescard.ca John Yap, MLA Richmond-Steveston

Throughout this whole process, from 1993 onwards, I have never advocated replacing the RCMP. However, I have strongly advocated for change within the RCMP. Because of the progress that has already been made and with other changes soon to come, I am doing a 180-degree turnaround and wholly support the RCMP and its new leaders. I cite the following as other good reasons to maintain the services of the RCMP in Richmond: 1) No one in senior RCMP management is running away from these

issues. Rather, they are facing them head on, with viable solutions. 2) We have absolute assurances from the Canadian Government via the Minister of Public Safety, the Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and the Deputy Commissioner of E Division on these matters. 3) One very important change yet to come is legislation that will enable the Commissioner to take fair, firm disciplinary actions, including discharge, against those less than honourable members. 4) I would also like

to refer to a Letter to the Editor, dated Dec. 19, 2012, where a Mr. Scott Stewart so ably illustrated the increased expenses that would occur if the city opted for a municipal or regional force. It goes without saying that there are a lot of dedicated, honest and hardworking members doing their jobs on the streets of Richmond, and elsewhere in Canada. So let’s keep these same people here in Richmond, protecting and keeping us safe! Dave Patterson Richmond

The Editor, I am a retired member of the RCMP and a permanent resident of Richmond since 1971. I worked at Richmond for about four and a half years during the ’70s, and again for four years during the ’80s. I would like to add my support towards the city keeping the RCMP. For years I have been critical of some members of the RCMP for less than professional behaviours as well as the senior leadership, or lack of it. In January and March of 1993, I made two presentations before Justice Wally Oppal’s Commission of Inquiry where I addressed these concerns. I did not have any success in changing things. However, I did not give up and continued on with my futile attempts. It was only after writing the Minister of Public Safety (Vic Toews) did I first see the start of real progress towards change.

If Chekhov added more comedy and action, while subtracting the subtextsoaked dialogue, perhaps his plays may have a wider audience appeal. Gateway Theatre’s artistic director emeritus Simon Johnston will soon find out as his play Sisters, directed by Sarah Rodgers and inspired by the Russian playwright’s Three Sisters, makes its world premiere at Gateway on Jan. 30. “What attracted me to Chekhov’s beautifully written play was that at the core of the play is a sister-in-law slowly taking over the house, room by room, which I thought was a neat idea,” said Johnston, who began writing the play two years ago.

For his story, Johnston changed the location and time period, as well as, downsized the cast, making his version more inspired by Chekhov’s, rather than adapted from it. Instead of early 20th century Russia, Johnston sets his play in a civil war-torn China in 1936. After the passing of their father General Protopov who relocated the family to China, two sisters Irena (Luisa Jojic) and Masha (Sarah Louise Turner) share a house with their brother’s wife, Natasha (Josette Jorge), who is from the Chinese village and use to be a servant. Ripe with tension, the two sisters’ ideas clash with Natasha’s. At the same time, one sister is wooed by the charming Captain Wong (John Ng), who is in fact see Play page 12

Reasons for Becoming a Committee

Earlier this month, reasons were released in the case of Re James. A (second) husband appealed the appointment of one of his wife's daughters as Committee over her financial affairs and health care. The patient, an alcoholic, married in 2005. Her six children did not support the marriage. She and her husband said that they would quit drinking (which they did). Strangely, she had been estranged from her daughter, the Committee. Allowing the Appeal, the Court found that it would be in the best interests of the patient to appoint her husband instead of her daughter. The Court suggested, in its judgment, that the daughter seemed to seek Committeeship to create an Estate for the children to inherit, where they were unlikely to inherit before (as they were estranged). Committeeship brings with it significant responsibilities to act in the best interests of the patient. Children and spouses are natural choices, but they need to be prepared for the commitment of time and duty.

Five School Resolutions for a Better New Year

Academic resolutions help students tune up their school habits and start the New Year off on the right foot. These Pve academic resolutions from Oxford Learning help students put an end to the habits that can cause stress and can interfere with the learning process.

1. 2. 3.

Rise and Shine. All students can use a little extra time in the morning. By setting alarm clocks 10 minutes earlier, students can reduce the morning rush and alleviate stress. Start the day with a good healthy breakfast to keep the brain active all day long, and avoid sugary treats which can cause an attention crash. Tune Out. TV and computers are the biggest distractions, especially when it comes to homework. While students need not give up the computer or TV entirely, replacing just half an hour to an hour of screen time with study time will make a signiPcant difference. Get organized. Resolve to use an agenda to stay on track so that homework and assignments are not forgotten. Also, create a to-do list to prepare for school the night

before. Choose clothing, re-pack book bags, and prepare lunches ahead of time to reduce the morning rush.

4.

Hit the sack. A better night’s sleep ensures that students are less sluggish and more mentally alert during the school day.

5.

Hit the books. Extra curricular reading is one of the best-known ways for students to build vocabulary and develop strong language skills.

For over 25 years, Oxford Learning has been helping students of all ages develop better school habits. Whether it is goal setting, reading comprehension, math skills, or homework help, Oxford Learning’s programs helps students start the year off on the right foot. Parents can contact Oxford Learning in Richmond at 604-233-5566 for more information. They can also visit the centre at 200 – 7380 Westminster Hwy (near Minoru) for wonderful tips and programs to help their kids achieve their goals.

Plan your work, then work your plan: Making the most of your gym time You spend all this time and energy at the gym, but you’re likely not getting the maximum payback in return for the effort you’re putting in. For many casual gym-goers, the critical missing ingredient is simple: a plan.

Get Fit with Josh

Does this sound familiar? You hit the gym after work, but you are somewhat aimless as far as where Josh Harowitz, BHK to go and what to do. You start Balancemotion.com going through a routine of the same exercises that you’ve been doing for the past number of months, and then one of the following happens: you stare at the multitude of cardio machines and wonder which one is best for you; you try to mimic an interesting exercise the person next to you is doing; you wander around trying to occupy your time while one of your favorite pieces of equipment is being used. Eventually you leave tired, but also frustrated, unfulfilled, and dissatisfied with your workout. It doesn’t have to be that way! The single most important thing you can do as a gym-goer is to have a plan. As the proverb says, “he who fails to plan, plans to fail.”

Start by taking five minutes before you leave the house to ensure your energy investment pays maximum dividends. Write it down and stick to it. It could be as simple as using an elliptical followed by a circuit of squats, pushups, and rows, or as complex as creating a pyramid set to hit a new personal record for how much weight you can deadlift. Then, before your next visit, rework your plan based on your specific goals. Maybe you want to increase your strength, size, and endurance, or perhaps just get in shape for ski season—no matter what you’re working towards, the important thing is to do so with purpose.

And while expert advice can be extremely helpful for things like perfecting your squatting or deadlifting technique, or understanding why you should be doing pulling exercises three-to-one over pushing exercises since you work at a desk all day, you can certainly go a long way on your own. Here’s a sample program to get you started. Bike: 15 minutes Foam roller: five minutes Circuit #1: (twice, in order) -

box squats (15) planks (45 seconds) bridges (12)

Circuit #2: (three times in order) -

Allow art to break out of gallery walls, integrate it in daily life and discover there is more than meets the eye. Those are the words of British artist Tristan Surtees, who has formed Sans façon with French architect Charles Blanc for the past 12 years. Currently touring to discuss their artwork, the internationally recognized pair will stop in Richmond Jan. 23 to kick off this year’s The Lulu Series: Art in the City, a series of talks exploring the relationship between art and the urban environment. According to Surtees’ personal definition, “art is a broad spectrum, it’s not just sculptural or two dimensional, but is also external and inviting.” As such, he and Blanc pair up artists with municipal infrastructure design teams in their Calgary-based project

step-ups onto a bench (10 for each leg) seated rows (15) incline pushups (15)

Regardless of the routine you choose, the point is: make a plan and stick with it. You do this in so many other aspects of your life—why not apply it to the gym? You’ll be surprised how much more fulfilling those workouts become.

Watershed+. Placing creative minds in a utilitarian facility and letting them in on the design and installation of water pumps, allows the artistic potential of a water system to be explored. Richmond too, could explore opportunities on how artists can take up that kind of work in the community, said Surtees. “Revealing the aspects we forget about helps us to engage in the enjoyment of the environment,” he said. See something new and fresh in something familiar lets people experience the world in different ways, according to Surtees. Another work Surtees and Blanc will present to the Richmond audience is Limelight: Saturday Night, a live public art installation in Vancouver. Converting two existing streetlights, the duo created a spotlight that lights up the street and invites people to transform the street into a stage.

Two simultaneous installations will be put up in other parts of the city, starting off at dusk Jan. 25 and 26. The installation has already travelled to 12 places around the world, with people “performing, sharing kisses or proposing marriage,” Surtees said. Artist Paula Jardine from Victoria will discuss her artwork that combines landscape, poetry, lanterns, music and fire, as part of the Lulu Series’ second event on Feb. 21. Director of the Vancouver Public Space Network Andrew Pask will then discuss the history of public space on March 28. All events are free and start at 7 p.m. at Richmond City Hall Council Chamber, 6911 No. 3 Road. As seating is limited, guests are advised to reserve their spots by emailing lulu@richmond.ca.

YWCA opens nominations for distinction awards BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST Special to the News

Entering its third decade of celebrating those who inspire, YWCA Metro Vancouver invites the community to nominate exceptional women throughout the region for its annual prestigious Women of Distinction Awards. During the award show, laureates will be recognized for their outstanding contributions to the community’s wellbeing. With the upcoming edition marking the 30th anniversary of the awards, more than 374 women and organizations have been

honoured and “have had the opportunity to be showcased for their achievements in the community,” said Chantelle Krish, advocacy and PR manager for YWCA Metro Vancouver. Last year, three accomplished Richmond women were among the nominees. While youth worker Hope Wang and executive director of Pacific Parkland Foundation Denise Coutts weren’t recipients in their categories, Violet Goosen, general manager of the Vancouver Chamber Choir, took home the Award for Arts, Culture and Design. Through her encounters with laureates Krish has learned “it means a lot for them to

have their efforts recognized in that capacity.” She said the Women of Distinction Awards also raise the profile of important community work, as grassroots initiatives may eventually turn into developed programs. In addition, one of the awards pays tribute to businesses or organizations supporting the diverse needs of their employees. “The Innovative Workplace award is for businesses who go above and beyond the basic policies; for those which foster growth and development for employees, while providing flexitime and recognizing the impor-

tance of work balance,” said Krish, adding awareness of the need for gender equity plays a significant role as well. Submissions for the Women of Distinction Awards are accepted until March 8 at 12 p.m. To nominate, visit ywcawomenofdistinction. org or call 604-895-5768. Individual nominees must live within the Metro Vancouver region, including Hope, Pemberton, Sunshine Coast and the United States border. Winners will be announced at the Awards Dinner on May 28 at the Westin Bayshore. Tickets will be available from April 3 onwards at www.ywcawomenofdistinction.org/#! or 604-895-5825.

New Volkswagen is the ultimate hatchback BY BRENDAN MCALEER Special to the News

In the automotive world, adding a letter designation instantly tells people what you’re up to: if there’s a sinuous “S” on the back, expect sporty handling; if there’s an “E”, it’ll either stand for efficiency or you’ll be plugging your car into the wall. But perhaps nothing is as inspiring as the regal R

hot hatchback.

Design

Surprisingly, it’s a fourdoor. If you know your way around the VW car configurator, you might note that the two-door GTi was previously king of the turbocharged hill over there, with the lightest weight and the highest performance. And while this über-racy hot hatchback is 10,000 smackeroos more expensive than its entry-level cousin, you might not know it to look at it. Sure, there’s special 18inch alloy wheels, a unique front and rear fascia and the aforementioned “R” badging, but overall things are quite subtle. Start thinking about what kind of hot-looking metal you can get yourself for almost $40K, and the Golf

Drive Time

Practical: Large trunk, four-door easy access Continued from page 22 think this is VW at their best. While Japanese and Korean manufacturers seem deadlocked in a competition to out-style each other with swoopy designs, and the domestic manufacturers insist on painting everything orange and fitting chromed wheels of a diameter more suited for a Conestoga wagon, restraint is a good thing. Yes, this car hauls. No, it doesn’t shout about it.

Environment

It’s practical too, with four-door ease of access and a big trunk. I mean, it is a Golf after all, and that makes it a Euro-sized, family car. If you’ve got kids, good news: booster seats and rear-facing child seats are much easier to handle with this sensible, square-doored layout. Fold down the seats for a snowboarding expedition; pick up your in-laws and their luggage from the airport. No problem. As a special model, you do get a few little touches not found on a regular GTi, like aluminum kickplates and some R-badging inside. Everything else, though, could be found on your average, high-trim regular Golf. That means a clean, simplistic layout, uncluttered and spartan. The seats are comfortable and wellbolstered and free of tacky badging. The stereo is very good, but not thumping or blaring. In fact, the only un-subtle thing about this car is having to explain to someone why you paid so much for it: they’ll think you’re a pirate. It’s a Golf ARRRRR.

Performance

Of course, you could always just take ’em for a spin around the block. With a tuned up 2.0L stolen out of the Audi TT, a solid six-speed manual transmission and all-wheeldrive to harness every one of its 256 horses, the Golf R is sure to impress right-seat passengers with grip, grip, grip. At least, once you figure out how to get it off the line without stalling, that is. First gear is far too long, and the R sort of bumbles off from a stop with a bit of a lag and slop from the allwheel-drive drivetrain. No GTi-esque chirrupy frontwheelspin here, just a lug and you’re away.

It’s not a great first impression, but it’s also not an inaccurate one — the Golf R is not a boy racer like its front-wheel-drive cousins. It’s grown-up, sensible, responsible: fast, but not Fast and Furious. In the dry, I liked the car all right, but couldn’t see the point. Then it rained and the lightbulb popped up over my head. Aha! That’s what this thing is for. With considerably more mid-range punch from the larger turbo-charger, the Golf R burns through an on-ramp with absolute confidence. No fuss, no muss, all grip. It’s as much fun as a GTi (maybe a little more), but better than that, it’s a much more secure, buttoneddown feel. This is the GTi all grownup, and as a sensible fourdoor with all-wheel-drive practicality and a long-lasting manual transmission, you begin to get an idea of how well it appeals to its target market. This is the ultimate Golf for the Ultimate Golf fan. Yes, it’s costly, but they’ve outgrown their ratty college GTi and it’s finally time for something nice.

Features

While its $39,675 price seems sky-high next to a regular GTi, the gap shrinks considerably when you start considering options. Namely, the Golf R doesn’t have any. It’s a fullyloaded model; pick your colour (grey, blue or black), and that’s it. No optional audio package, no extra navigation. Load up the base GTi, and the gap closes to right around three thousand dollars — for an extra 50hp and all-wheel-drive, that’s not bad. Factor in the resale that the rare Golf R will have, and things look even better — like I said, it’s the sensible VW enthusiast’s choice. Observed fuel economy is solid, with official ratings at 10.9L/100kms city and 7.5L/100kms highway. We all know how far-off official numbers can be, and with a sporty car that encourages vigorous driving, expect worse and you’ll get it. However, it’s not much worse than the standard car, and far better than something like a Subaru STi — note that premium fuel is of course recommended.

Competitors

Subaru WRX five-door

PHOTO SUBMITTED

The Golf has a clean and uncluttered interior with square doors making it easy to handle, rear-facing child seats and booster seats. The seats also fold down for easy storage.

($33,395) For the family-man or woman in a hurry, the WRX has been the pocket-rocket of choice for more than a decade. With 265hp, a flared-out body shared with the STi, and stupendous Subaru AWD-grip, it’s hard to think of anything that offers better all-weather confidence, performance and value. Unfortunately, it is still a bit loud, a bit uncouth, and somewhat plasticky. There’s a reason VW is able to charge more for its products, and it’s that baby-BMW feel of their vaunted German ride and handling. The WRX is the value choice, the STI is the hooligan’s choice. With the least power, the Golf R remains the tasteful option Volkswagen GLI ($27,590) We’ve already demonstrated that the GTi isn’t that much more expensive than the Golf R. However, if you’re looking for a practical car with German feel and a high fun-to-drive factor, here’s the best-kept secret in VW’s range. The GLI is a fantastic car to drive, planted and very fast, and with a thrilling growl from its 2.0L four-pot turbo. It’s also a sensible family-sized sedan, and a bit of a sleeper-car. Thoroughly enjoyable, cheaper than a Golf — a great buy.

Battle will be intense for Mainland playoff berths Richmond Senior Boys Basketball League has never been more competitive but only some will advance beyond city BY M ARK B OOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

It’s only mid-January and the level of urgency is already evident in the Richmond Senior Boys Basketball League. For most of its near two decade existence, predicating how the city circuit would annually unfold was more of a formality with a clear division between the top teams and everyone else. That has changed significantly thanks to better overall coaching and declining enrollment that is sending teams on different playoff routes. Half of the city league teams (Palmer, Cambie, McRoberts, MacNeill and Boyd) are now classified as “AA” schools. The end result is Richmond’s number of berths into the Lower Mainland “AAA” championships being cut from four down to just two spots. Last season, the Steveston-London Sharks and Burnett Breakers advanced. This time, all five teams are capable of moving on, setting the stage for a very intriguing playoff tournament next month. The two unbeaten frontrunners clashed on Monday with the host McMath Wildcats improving to 5-0

with a wild 64-61 victory over Burnett (4-1). What the teams may have lacked in polished at times, they made up for in playoff intensity in front of a near capacity crowd. McMath opened up a 27-17 halftime lead, only to allow the Breakers to come storming back to take a 4038 advantage into the final quarter. The lead changed hands several times down the stretch as both squads dealt with foul trouble. The Wildcats pulled out the win by outscoring Burnett 11-8 in the extra five minute session. “Our bench really had to help us out tonight with all the fouls,” said Wildcats coach Jon Acob. “The guys practice hard so when they go in there, the level doesn’t really slip. This win is huge when you consider what it can do for us down the road.” Acob, who coached a number of years at Burnett before making his way to McMath, still figures his old team is the one to beat among the “AAA” combatants, but suggests nothing will come easy come playoff time. “We have good coaches in our league right now,” he added. “They are all working their butts off and it’s good

Alban Shala had 21 points for Burnett. Brandon Beavis chipped in with 14.

Six-time defending city champion RC Palmer improved to 2-0 with a 10573 win over the Richmond Colts Monday. The province’s sixth ranked “AA” team is hoping to get to Kamloops in March and a

tougher trek in league play will certainly help the cause. “This year, the overall talent is better than we have seen it in a long time,” said Griffins head coach Paul Eberhardt. “There are a lot of teams that are doing well

and it’s great to know you’re going to be challenged most nights.” The league’s only two unbeaten teams will meet on Monday at Palmer when the Griffins host the Wildcats at 7:30 p.m.

Richmond Rockets on track for a successful season

SUBMIITED PHOTO

Richmond Rockets Speed Skating Club members Zakary Sharp (left) and Justin Russell.

The 2012-13 speed skating season is proving to be a fast one for the Richmond Rockets Speed Skating Club. The season is at the midway mark and many of the club’s skaters are posting personal best times in short-track racing. Last weekend, 10 Rockets participated in the Burnaby Haida Speed Skating Club’s annual race. Six-year-old Zakary Sharp skated to first place in all of his races. The Burnaby event was the third competitive race for this young skater. Sharp exclaimed, “It was really fun. Speed skating is my favourite sport.” Justin Russell, 16, has been having a great season. He’s in the club’s High Performance Development Program. “It was great getting back on the ice after the holiday break. My racing is progressing well. I’m really looking forward to Calgary’s national qualifying race in February,” Russell said.

The Rockets are coached by Chris Action — a former national speed skating team member who was named B.C. Speed Skating Association’s coach of the year in 2009-10. “I’m seeing our skaters’ hard training really paying off. Their technique is continuing to improve and it’s helping them set faster times,” remarked Acton. For the first time, the Rockets will host a short track speed skating race March 16 at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Spectators can expect to see skaters from Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island participating. This fun FUNale is a year-end event that gives skaters one more chance to race before the season ends. It’s a great opportunity for local spectators to watch short track speed skating in a world class facility. The Rockets feature over 30 members from throughout the Lower Mainland, ranging in age from five

to over 60. They offer a unique opportunity for skaters of all abilities to learn and excel in an exciting sport that provides life-long benefits: sportsmanship, commitment to excellence, community involvement and healthy living. For those athletes who strive to be high performance short track speed skaters, the Rockets have an elite training program to take their provincial competitors to the national and international level.

Coming Events

BRANDON - Marguerite (Rita) April 9, 1930 - Nov. 11, 2012 With profound sadness we announce her passing. Predeceased by her loving husband of 49 years, Jacques in 1998, resident of Richmond for 55 years. Loved for her great devotion to her family, her warm spirit and never-ending energy, with the most vibrant and giving personality of any angel on earth - the matriarch of our family - the glue that held us together. Our memories and love of her are immeasurable. Greatly mourned by daughters Bernadette and Beatrice, son-in-law Gabriel, granddaughter Andrea and husband Brook, grandson Stefan, and her pride and joy, her greatgrandchildren: Jonas, Maya, Guilherme and Yusuf. Also remembering are close family and old friends in Luxembourg, France, Canada, and the USA. A wonderful wife, mother, true friend, our dear Babka, may you rest peacefully. A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 1pm at the Minoru Seniors’ Centre.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The weeks ahead bring social joys, popularity, entertainment, light romance, group activities and wish fulfillment – in an even stronger dose than most Januaries/Februaries. Life seems worthwhile again! Though the pressure is off at work, bosses still favour you, so a moment of socializing with them (say Monday, Tuesday) can’t hurt. Sunday’s for shopping – early, before ten. Travel, paperwork, casual friends, errands and variety fill Monday/Tuesday – be curious. Head for home Wednesday eve to Friday: be sluggish, recuperate, nurture family. Romance crescendos Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: An ambitious month begins. Your energy and magnetism are tops Sunday, but there’s little worth doing. Charge after money and possessions Monday/Tuesday – a great two days for investments, wiping out debt and sensual gratification. Your career and social reputation face a lucky opening. Trips, errands, paperwork and casual friends/siblings fill Wednesday eve to Friday: good mixes with bad, so be on your toes. Legal and governmental zones might not go well, but your career faces even more opportunity, If you have an ambitious hunch, act on it without delay. Home, family Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead feature intellectual activities, far travel, love and weddings, cultural projects, higher learning, religion, philosophy, insurance and statistics. The small of these will proceed swiftly, but the big is sluggish, will grow Jan. 30 onward. Retreat and rest Sunday: DON’T handle sharp equipment. Your energy, magnetism, sense of timing and effectiveness soar Monday/Tuesday: start new projects, declare your love, see and be seen (and heard!). Chase money Wednesday eve to Friday noon: open doors and barriers mingle: buy cautiously. Errands and friends, Saturday.

REAL ESTATE

Cancer June 21-July 22: The month ahead features sex, intimacy, high finance (investments, debt, etc.) mysteries and research, health diagnosis, lifestyle changes, commitment and consequence. This area is super-charged now; testosterone is high; so is human attraction. You could be tempted to stray. Investing in (or researching in) your career can yield benefits. Sunday’s friendly, happy, but avoid practical goals. Retreat to rest, plan, and fulfill old obligations Monday/Tuesday: you might receive a “gift” for your charitable or spiritual efforts. Your energy and charisma soar Wednesday eve to Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead emphasize relationships, opportunity and opposition, negotiation, dealings with the public, relocation possibilities and fresh new horizons. You feel ambitious Sunday, but a nice rest will gain more. Your popularity rises Monday to Wednesday. Social delights, light romance, entertainment, optimism and wish fulfillment flow in. Someone you meet or woo could be a potential, viable life mate. Retreat Wednesday night to Friday: rest, contemplate, plan, be spiritual, charitable. Your energy, charisma and timing soar Saturday – approach someone to solve a problem. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Sunday’s mellow, loving, but don’t start major projects – contemplate, or read. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday – great luck accompanies you. A month of work and health concerns has just begun (Jan. 19) and this dovetails splendidly with your career, prestige and status desires. Monday/Tuesday (not so much Wednesday) are one of the prime intervals in this trend – if you work eagerly, you gain. Approach higher-ups with a plan or proposal those two days. Friends, popularity and optimism visit you Thursday/Friday. Retreat for some “down time” Saturday. Contemplate love barriers.

Jan. 20 - Jan. 26, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of romance, creativity, of pleasure, charming children and speculative urges starts now. Indulge some of those speculative urges – you’re on a winning streak! There will be a bump, especially around Jan. 30 (next week) – one that might raise the problem of money or unequal socio-economic positions. And in general, if you want to turn love into living (i.e., co-habitation) or marriage, you face problems involving domesticity: where you live, or step-kids, etc. Still, you could hardly pick a better time this decade, to love and mate! Monday/Tuesday show how/why. Lucky! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Until late February, examine your relationships and projects – jettison the old, stale and unworkable, to make room for the new little green shoots that you now must nurture. Err on the side of gentleness in this, for you are temperamental all January in domestic and other situations – “dumping someone” roughly can create a long-term enemy. At home, kindness is key. In gardening, go light on fertilizer. Sunday’s intriguing but without result. Sexual urges, mysteries, high finance, investments, fill Monday-Wednesday – luckily so! Mellow thoughts late week. Be ambitious Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The weeks ahead fill with casual friends, siblings, errands, short trips, communications, details, reports and paperwork. It’s a very busy but not terribly important time. Send “love letters” over the two weeks ahead, both literally and metaphorically (e.g., the right glance or tone of voice is a “letter” also). Tackle routine chores Sunday – nothing big. Relationships excite and are splendidly lucky Monday/Tuesday – be eager to join, diplomatic, flexible: others hold the power. Deeper themes – sex, intimacy, financial commitments – need caution late week. Mellow joy Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The month ahead features money and possessions. You have already experienced heightened money flows since late December: now these become more serious, as your “net worth” is affected. So it’s very important to stop useless, nervous or frivolous outflows, and to invest, if you do, carefully.The best time to invest for machinery, tools, work is Monday/Tuesday – two great days to apply for employment or begin a project, also. The best time for other types of investment (or reducing debt) is January 27. Sunday’s beautiful but useless. Relationships demand care Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, effectiveness, timing and charisma reach a yearly high over the next few weeks. Start important projects, see and be seen, vie for romance (one of the bigger ones of your life seems likely to arrive, or has arrived, between June 2012 and June 2013). Ask favours, they’ll be granted. Sunday’s for rest, period. Romance, a creative surge, charming kids, speculative success, fill a splendidly lucky Monday/ Tuesday (and Wednesday, but with little result). Tackle chores Thursday/Friday – keep an eye on safety. Relationships contain a hidden barrier Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Withdraw mildly now to late February. This is your recuperation time of year: rest, protect your health, contemplate where you stand now and make plans for future action. Be charitable, spiritual – it will come back to you. You feel like visiting or communicating Sunday: little result. Charge into domestic, real estate, gardening, nutrition, children, security and retirement zones Monday/Tuesday – you’ll succeed, in major ways! Romantic notions, creative urges and pleasure drives swell Thursday/Friday, but you might be wise to let these remain notions only. Tackle chores Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
