Striking disability staff walk out

Community service workers getting paid a dollar per hour less than 11 years ago BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News

Dozens of community social services workers, many from the Developmental Disabilities Association (DDA), went on a one-day strike Wednesday morning outside the DDA head office on Shell Road. DDA executive director Alanna Hendren was present and spoke to media and workers about the starting wages that are $15.54 an

hour, down from $16.83 in 2002. “During a time when the cost of living has increased by 18 per cent, this has to change,” said Hendren who added her and the board of directors have no input into pay levels. “We have employment specialists at the DDA now making less money than the individuals with developmental disabilities for whom they are finding work,” The association provides a variety of

services for people with learning disabilities of all ages such as infant development programs, childcare and educational programs and community housing for adults with complex medical and psychological needs. Oliver Rohlfs — B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union’s communications officer, of which the DDA belongs to — said the strike had minimal effects on those using the services. “The challenge is you have see Employers page 4

Peewee hockey coach facing house arrest BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

A hockey coach who tripped up two young Richmond players during a post-game handshake should face house arrest, a court heard Thursday. Martin Tremblay admitted assaulting the two Richmond Steel players following a heated spring hockey gold medal game at the UBC Thunderbird Arena last June. At his sentencing hearing in Richmond Provincial Court, Crown prosecutor Gerry-Lyn Nelson said Tremblay abused his position of trust, lost control and deliberately tripped up

Tremblay had player, 13, in tears after trash-talking

the players, aged nine and 13 at the time. The older boy had a cast on a suspected broken wrist, which later turned out not to be as serious as first thought. A YouTube video of the incident went viral on the Internet, attracting 2.5 million hits. As a result of the assault, Tremblay deserves to spend at least 30 days under house arrest, as well as a series of probation conditions, Nelson told Judge Patrick Chen. Tremblay’s defence is opposing the house arrest.

“This was not about hockey,” Nelson said. “This is about the assault of an adult on a child. It just happened to be on a hockey rink. “Parents take their kids to the rink and have to feel they’re safe and not going to be harmed at the hands of someone in a supervisory role.” The court heard how, in an attempt to “put the 13-year-old player off his game,” Tremblay called the boy “Tinkerbell,” and “shitface,” to which the boy replied with his own insults and rude gestures. see Coach page 4

49ers’ Superbowl special Dumping, fill bylaw plowed play: Steveston grad BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

BY LOWELL ULLRICH The Province

It won’t happen of course, because Richmondite Mark Uyeyama will be too busy Sunday, attending to the needs of the San Francisco 49ers on the sideline of pro football’s biggest stage. But there would be no better time than kickoff of the Super Bowl for someone who grew up attending Steveston secondary school to examine his sacrifices and savour the moment, even for a second. Uyeyama is the 49ers strength and conditioning coach, the NFL team’s equivalent of Chris Boyko of the B.C. Lions, and the work he has put in to reach his position is no less inspiring than the players asked to follow his training program. Part of a successful family in the B.C. high school coaching fraternity, the 37-year-old didn’t make it as a player but got serious about strength work while at Utah State. He landed an associate post with the 49ers in 2008 and was promoted when Jim Harbaugh took over as head coach two seasons ago. z For the full story, go to www.theprovince.com and www.richmondnews.com.

The City of Richmond advanced this week a new bylaw requiring a permit for soil removal and fill projects on Agricultural Land Reserve sites. The new bylaw was sparked by controversy surrounding a parcel of land on Finn Road, which was blockaded by local farmers protesting over the dumping of fill materials. However, the new law still has to be rubber-stamped by the province, which has jurisdiction over farmland. Concerned farmers and residents, many of whom had formed a group called FarmWatch, packed out city hall Monday night to pile pressure onto city council to change the rules regarding soil removal and fill

dumping. Their worries centred around possible contamination from the toxicity from concrete and asphalt, leaching harmful chemicals into the soil. The property owners said the materials were being used to construct a road bed through a future tree farm on the 35-acre site. They told city council Monday night that a road is needed to support a large-scale operation on the site. Council was told that the large concrete pieces have been broken up and metal removed and that the asphalt has been taken away. Under the new law, a $600 permit will be required before any soil is removed or filling in is carried out on farmland and a fine of up to $10,000 per day can be issued for infractions.

Continued from page 1 It was also revealed in court that Tremblay was under a year-long probation for a workrelated assault against an adult at the time. Tremblay later told a psychiatrist afterwards that his emotions “weren’t under control” during the game. Tremblay’s lawyer, Bob Bellows, said it was a one-time incident for which Tremblay was “extremely regretful.” Bellows said Tremblay had quit taking his medications for anxiety and depression at the time of the incident and has had problems with alcohol in the past. “He should not have been coaching,” said Bellows. “The notoriety of this case has been huge. There have been 2.5 million hits on YouTube.” The sentence hearing continues. —With a file from The Province ❚ For updates on this story, go to www.richmond-news.com.

BUSINESS

Shop owner has wheely great idea for cyclists BY PHILLIP RAFAEL Special to the News

Steveston business owner Tony Dales is hoping a “collective” effort from him and his customers will help get the wheels rolling on a novel idea for bike repair and maintenance. Dales, who runs Steveston Bicycle & Kayak Shoppe, launched a do-it-yourself bike repair and training service earlier last month at his London Landing store that provides the workspace, tools and even some expert advice and help — if you need it — to keep your ride running smoothly. It’s a big departure from the traditional “drop-it-off-with-the-pros” way of doing business, but a clear sign of the times when new ideas are being offered to attract trade. “The cycling business, like any other retail

business, has morphed out of all semblance of what it was when I started in it around 10 years ago,” Dales said. “What we’re seeing with a model like this — consumer-based retail — is you’d better figure it out quick and change. And change is the only constant in retail.” It’s also a reflection of how society has evolved. “When I grew up, almost all of us had their parents’ garage full of tools. And we all hung out there as teenagers and fixed all the bikes in the neighbourhood,” Dales said. “Eventually, we moved on to motorcycles, cars and girls. But nowadays, you look around and most young guys and gals don’t get that opportunity. That’s just one of the reasons to do this.” see Dales page 6

COURTS UNDERSTAND CHRONIC PAIN

FOUR DAYS ONLY

$

PHILLIP RAFAEL SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Math French

It’s not uncommon for courts to grant damages of over $100,000 to injured plaintiffs suffering chronic pain. This includes compensation for pain and suffering as well as past and future income loss. Damages just for the chronic pain component tend to range between $35,000 and $125,000. Chronic pain is pain that lasts beyond the normal healing time for the injury and can’t be proved by objective medical findings. For example, in a typical whiplash involving small tears within the muscles and ligaments around the neck, the pain is usually better after a few weeks and gone within several months. But in about 10% of cases, the injured victim develops a chronic pain syndrome. Although there may no longer be a physical cause, the pain they suffer and their resulting disability is very real. Coping with this can be very difficult and, understandably, often leads to depression. A crucial factor in compensating chronic pain is the person’s credibility. Their testimony, if accepted as true and reliable by the judge, is often the most persuasive “proof” of their claim. Consider the case of A.S., decided by the BC Supreme Court in 2010. Mr. S, 55, was an energetic hardwood floor installer. Hurt in a rear-end crash, he suffered a mild to moderate soft tissue injury to the left side of his neck and shoulder. Four years later, he still experienced neck pain, although it was much less intense than before. He continued to work, but his jobs took longer. He couldn’t swim or canoe anymore, but he still hunted and hiked occasionally. The judge referred to an earlier BC Court of Appeal case. That case confirmed that courts must be careful compensating an injured person when there is little or no objective evidence of the pain and the

complaints continue longer than expected. But that case also reiterated that the plaintiff’s own evidence, “if consistent with the surrounding circumstances” is sufficient proof. In the case of A.S., the judge described Mr. S as a “stoic and determined person,” who tried to remain physically active despite his continuing pain. The judge accepted his evidence of his problems and awarded him total damages of $156,820, including $75,000 for his pain and suffering. The evidence of doctors and other medical specialists also helps to substantiate an injured plaintiff’s claim of chronic pain. For example, in another recent case, all the specialists who examined P.R. had a “guarded prognosis for her complete recovery” from her soft-tissue injuries “despite her tremendous efforts to rehabilitate herself.” A 26-yearold graphic designer, she was rear-ended in two accidents and ended up suffering chronic neck and back pain, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Before the accidents, she was a fun-loving active woman. After, she couldn’t sit comfortably for long periods and gave up activities she loved like horseback riding. Her relationship with her common-law husband was also affected. “There is no doubt that Ms. [R] has been in pain almost continuously since the accidents,” said the judge. “Neither her family physician nor the many specialists she has seen have found any exaggerated or non-organic symptoms. She is clearly not a malingerer.” She was awarded over $360,000 in total damages, including $95,000 for her pain and suffering. Chronic pain cases require a careful and thorough assessment to make a solid legal claim. Seek legal advice if you are hurt in an accident.

t’s just like your mom always said when you were a kid: put on a sweater. Fortis BC is teaming up with local business groups to promote energy conservation and help the less fortunate. This Feb. 2-9 is Turn Down the Heat Week in a number of B.C. communities, in which homeowners and business proprietors are being urged to set the thermostat just a little bit lower. Simultaneously, local Business Improvement Associations and some member merchants are taking in donations of sweaters for those in need. It’s easy to push that thermostat slider over to one side and bask as warm air comes out of the vents. But that air is warmed by the combustion of non-renewable natural gas, or in some rare cases by electricity created by damming mighty B.C. rivers. Saving that energy is a good philosophy, and one that shouldn’t be practised for just a single week out of the year. We have four to six damp and cool months every year here in B.C., sometimes including June. A sweater, a pair of warm socks and blanket while settled in for a night of TV are easier on both environment and bank balance than cranking up the furnace. The simple lesson from our mothers’ call to put on a sweater can be expanded out from there. In the summer, the same thing applies to air conditioning. The way we build our homes and offices, from double-glazed windows to the colour of paint to the use of shade trees can make a big difference, and cut down on the energy we expend.

Pipeline best option: VAFFC The Editor, Re: “B.C. ministers delay jet fuel delivery decision,” News, Jan. 30 As we await the provincial government’s decision on whether to grant VAFFC an Environmental Assessment Certificate (EAC), we stand by our assertion that this is the best solution to meet the airport’s needs. Aircrafts need fuel, and the current fuel delivery system is inadequate and relies on hundreds of tanker truck deliveries each month from Washington State. The new system is more sustainable, more efficient and has a smaller environmental footprint. It will also eliminate the truck deliveries. Public safety and environmental protection are fundamental priorities. The project will be built to modern building, seismic, fire and environmental codes to achieve the highest levels of safety and reliability. The safety and environmental protection on the Fraser River is also a top priority. VAFFC plans extensive spill prevention and response strategies, and will follow recommendations stemming from Port Metro Vancouver’s Tanker Traffic Study. These measures will contribute to raising the overall protection and incident response capability for all users on the Lower Fraser River. Our analysis in support of the project followed industry and academic best practice and was recognized as being state-of-theart. In the end result, the project benefits are significant and the risks are low. The city’s staff have been involved every step of the way. In fact, following concerns raised publicly and through the city’s involvement in the review process, additional studies were conducted and specific commitments by VAFFC were made. These included an in-depth study of specific delivery options in comparison to this project, and the almost complete relocation of the preferred pipeline corridor through Richmond. The EAC is the first step towards implementing this important project. If granted, VAFFC will begin additional regulatory processes that will continue to involve the City of Richmond. Adrian Pollard Project director, VAFFC

The myth of the Canadian firm On Wednesday, the company formerly known as Research In Motion unveiled its BlackBerry 10, and the talk was about whether it would save the company, or turn into the final nail in its coffin. The second level of discussion had a nationalistic tinge: whither Canada’s biggest technology company? What would it mean for Canada if BlackBerry crashes and burns? Frankly, not much. There’s a persistent myth that a country’s fortunes are intimately linked to its large and internationally known firms. China may be the factory of the world, but no one took much note of its technology sector until Lenovo bought IBM’s personal computer business. Likewise, no one cared how many cheap widgets were made in Japan in the 1950s, but when they started bringing Hondas and Toyotas to American shores, then they started being taken seriously. Does having a big firm based in your country create jobs, drive the economy, improve local competitiveness? A little bit. But not nearly as much as people like to pretend when they wrap BlackBerry in the flag. For example, when BlackBerry, then still RIM, went through massive layoffs in July of 2011, slashing 2,000 of its 17,000 jobs, it was notable that only 9,000 of its total staff worked at the company’s

Matthew Claxton PA I N F U L T RU T H

headquarters in Waterloo, Ont. Where are the rest? All around the world, in other parts of Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia. The big corporate headquarters is a major job source for Waterloo, and from there spinoffs hit the rest of Ontario and to a lesser degree the rest of Canada and the U.S. So, having a high-tech company based in Canada is far from a bad thing. But we should also remember that it is not here out of the goodness of its heart. If its sole goal was to benefit Canada’s economy, surely it would build its phones here, right? Actually, BlackBerry really doesn’t build its own devices. As with virtually every major brand in the world, from Apple to Nike to Lenovo to Microsoft, manufacturing is now done through a network of contractors and subcontractors. For BlackBerry, it’s involved a Finnish firm called Elcoteq that does its actual manufacturing in China, and a couple of American companies that work in China, India, the Ukraine, and Mexico, and Hungary. Maybe someday the

manufacturing of Black Berries and iPhones and Xboxes will come to North America — but it won’t be out of any nationalistic pride or desire to give Canadians jobs. It’ll be because it became cheaper than the alternatives. This is the point that is often glossed over when it comes to the debate about Canadian firms. We tend to care about whether they fail or succeed, because we see them through maple-leaf-o-vision. But they don’t care about Canada. They can’t. Corporations are like machines, and machines don’t have ethics, they just do what they’re designed to do. A corporation is a machine designed to make money. It is competing with a bunch of other machines trying to do the same thing. So if making money means off-shoring jobs, it will do that. If making money means hiring more people in Canada, it will do that. Some of the side effects of the machine’s actions are good: it’s nice that people have high-paying work, and it’s good that we have a lot of highly skilled people working in Canada instead of brain-draining away. But don’t mistake those accidental spin-offs for patriotic concern. It’s all about whether a firm can keep making money. Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

Oval: Numbers please Red Nose wraps for another season

The Editor, Re: “McNulty: Museum cost justified,” News, Jan. 25. I note Coun. McNulty deems further expenditure on the oval for an Olympic museum to be a worthy cause and will increase revenue. Yes, it will necessitate the transfer of more tax revenue from the city to cover the losses at the oval. How novel — the city taxpayer will pay the cost and the oval will get the revenue! The BC Sports Hall of Fame has been operating at a loss. Why? Why will the oval be any different? If this is a worthy cause, why not fund it entirely from the Games Operating Trust? Please ensure the museum includes prominent historical displays of displaced persons to make way for Olympic event venues around the world, Olympic project cost overruns, the Greek 2004 Olympic project financial debacle, the Montreal Olympic stadium financial debacle, the negative impact on civil liberties, the supremacy of the IOC over sovereign government authority, costs to taxpayers and a history

of the degree and extent of performance enhancing drugs by Olympic athletes. This museum content could be an attractive and necessary reference point for any nation considering hosting a future Olympic event. Before Richmond elected officials require any more funding from the public taxpayer, a complete disclosure of all — repeat, all — annual total oval costs to Richmond taxpayers since the inception of the project should be provided by the city administration to the public. These annual totals must include all oval project associated costs, without exception. The numbers are not readily apparent when reviewing the city annual reports or the oval annual reports. Without these details, our city management is no better than the recently exposed at Attawapiskat. Every councillor should know the numbers, including the annual capital cost obligation — a mere $5 million. Please show us the numbers! Ken McLennan Richmond

• FUN

The Editor, We are very proud to have wrapped up our 11th Annual Operation Red Nose Campaign for the communities of Delta and Richmond. The word “operation” is key as it takes a real army of volunteers and organizers to deliver this safe driving service to our communities. This year thanks to the help of more than 400 volunteers, we were able to deliver almost 650 rides over a period of nine nights. More than 21,000 kilometers were driven and almost $20,000 were given in tips. It is hard to quantify the impact of this huge operation as it relates to the well-being and safety of our residents, families and employees. However, through the direct appreciation of those who received the service, we can definitely qualify it as a huge success. The relief and gratitude from clients after each ride is completed is

worth the long nights and the efforts to coordinate this campaign. We are thankful to all those who responded to the call to help out — parents from Delta Gymnastics Club, caring community members from all over Delta and Richmond, younger and older people, first-time and repeat volunteers, coworkers and family teams, community service clubs, corporate and small business employees. The mix of people is very diverse, but they all have in common the desire to give back to their community and to keep the roads safe. Many also have personal reasons for their involvement, they have experienced the heartbreak of losing a loved one through a drinking and driving accident or they consider it a small sacrifice on their part that can help prevent accidents and emotional devastation from happening. We are very grate-

ful to ICBC — provincial sponsor — the many businesses who provide us with financial support, the local media for allowing us the space to raise the necessary awareness and to Delta police and Richmond RCMP for their unwavering and prompt support. It is not too early to consider this as an option for you to get involved for our 2013 campaign — if you have been thinking to join our crew of volunteers, please email us at info@deltagymnastics. com and we will add you to our list to contact later this year.

History shows rewards for high-risk investors This column is the first in a 10-part series No one invests to lose money. Although the past decade or so may have people wondering about that, history does not lie. In the long run, markets throughout the world have a history of rewarding investors for deploying their capital in proportion to the risk they are willing to take. Their expected returns offer compensation for bearing the various risks involved. The U.S. stock market is the biggest in the world and gives us statistics that are longer than those in

Richard Vetter WEALTH SMARTS

Canada, so I’ll use them as an example. From 1926 through the end of 2012, the entire universe of U.S. stocks gave us an average compound rate of return of 9.63 per cent (as measured by the Centre for Research in Security Prices at the Chicago Booth School of Business).

During the same period, “safe” U.S. one-month treasury bills gave us a 3.53 per cent compound rate of return and inflation averaged 2.98 per cent, as measured by the U.S. Consumer Price Index. To calculate the “real rate of return”, we subtract inflation from the rate of return. After that bit of basic math, the real rate of return of the U.S. stock market has been 6.65 per cent, while that of treasury bills has been 0.55 per cent. You’ve probably seen enough compound interest calculations to realize that 0.55 per cent is going to slowly and steadily get you

broke very safely! That’s not bad for short to mid-term goals, but it can be catastrophic in the long run. If we dig a little deeper (and we will in future articles), we also know that the folks who invest in the smallest and most out of favour stocks will do better than those who invest in the biggest and safest companies. Why? Simply because the market tends to reward investors who take higher risks An “efficient market” or equilibrium view assumes that competition in the marketplace quickly drives stock or bond prices to fair value, ensuring that investors can

only expect greater average returns by taking greater risk in their portfolios. Lightning-fast information and trading technology has virtually eliminated the advantages once held by even the smartest professional money managers. In this environment, the best thing that investors can do is to identify the risks they are willing to take, position their portfolios to capture these risks through broad diversification, keep their costs low and stay in the game through the highs and lows. The long and short is that no one is smarter than the

market. If I take a position that a certain stock is worth more or less than its current market value, I’m essentially claiming to be smarter than the market. I’ve come to the blissful realization that I can never do that. The opinions expressed are those of Richard Vetter, BA, CFP, CLU, ChFC.

The Art Challenge display at Thompson Community Centre caught the attention of Caleb Thring (left), 4, and Isabel Homeniuk, 2, who were playing around under the Challenge work on display when the News’ photographer stopped by. The teenagers’ exhibition is on now until the end of February. Last fall, the City of Richmond opened the challenge to artists and aspiring artists over the age of 13. The completed work had to be submitted on a 10x10inch stretched deep canvas that was provided. Themes were provided on the registration form. All works have are on display at the community centre.

Executor fees – don’t forget to deduct

A Testator of a Will may give a gift to his or her Executor, who is appointed in a Will. In British Columbia, such a gift is typically tax-free. If the Will leaves no gift, however, an Executor can claim Executor fees by law. Being an Executor usually involves a lot of work, so it is fair to claim fees. The maximum Executor fee, in B.C., is 5% of the gross value of the Estate. If the Executor claims the fee, it is taxable income that must be reported in his or her next tax return. It is worth discussing the tax with an Accountant, because the Executor may need to deduct CPP and EI amounts in addition to the tax. If an Executor does that kind of work routinely in his or her business, he or she would have to treat the Executor fee as “business income." If the Executor acts in just one Estate, the income would be considered “employment income.” Either way, Executors must deduct. Visit our website (www.WillPowerLaw.com) or call us at (604) 233-7001 to discuss your Wills, Estates and Seniors’ questions.

Andante, new art gallery exhibit opening Feb. 2, has Half-Canoe by Until We Have A Helicopter (a cooperative of artists). Kathy Tycholis, education and public program coordinator, places a luggage section into place. and Alberta taking photos of people he met while walking and eventually also of objects like weather stations and huts that he encountered. Two of the other artists, Wes Cameron and Matthew Robertson, are part of a local collaborative group called Until We Have A Helicopter. “They’re not using technology directly, but certainly refer to it in their work,” said Capogna. The duo’s exhibit features a working canoe that is broken down and reconfigured as carry-on luggage. On opening day, there will be an introduction at 2:30 p.m. with all the artists present who will provide a short tour of their works. The exhibit is free at the Richmond Art Gallery, located in the Richmond Cultural Centre, 7700 Minoru Gate, and runs until March 24. For more information, visit www.richmondartgallery.org.

BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News

This Saturday, Andante — a new group exhibit at the Richmond Art Gallery starting Feb. 2 — encourages visitors to slow down from the quick pace of their busy lives and be attentive to their surroundings. With the literal meaning of “at a walking pace,” Andante features the work of six emerging and experienced artists that are all directly influenced or related to walking, said curator of the Richmond Art Gallery Nan Capogna. “What I like most about the exhibition is that it’s such a diverse group of people and art,” said Capogna. “There is also a theme of technology, or lack thereof, running through the show.” For instance, one of the artists, Victorian Mike Andrew McLean, used a classic 4x5 camera that he carried for more than 1,000 kilometres through national parks in B.C.

hen you hear, “You’re not the boss of me!” you most likely think of an insolent child, perhaps trying to assert him or herself over an authority figure. However, it’s a phrase Richmond author Alma Lightbody encourages readers to adopt, not matter what their age. Using her holistic health background, Lightbody aims to help people better understand themselves in her latest book, You’re Not the Boss of Me: Discover Your Authentic Self. She’ll be holding a book signing in Serendipity’s Backyard next Saturday (Feb. 9) afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m. “It’s about paying attention — aware is a big word — that you might be doing or saying things that don’t reflect how you feel,” said Lightbody. “I want to encourage people to speak their own truth. You need to pay attention when your body speaks to you.” The book is the culmination of a 10-year journey beginning with herself. After being a corporate cog, losing a business and a relationship, all while experiencing bleeding ulcers, Lightbody realized she needed to stop and think about how she viewed herself. After a 180-degree career change, Lightbody discovered similar patters in patients on her healing table. Physical ail-

ments would be connected to emotional pains and stresses — a link commonly overlooked. She said not having a firm grasp on oneself is at the base of these problems, as it can affect relationships and careers. More often than not, people are shaped by external factors — controls or imprints — in their lives such as media, peers and parents, who tell them what they should or should not think, said Lightbody. On her desk is a “No Smoking”-type sign with the word “Should” substituted for “No Smoking”. You’re Not the Boss of Me, which includes charts and exercises, is meant to help people, whether teenagers or older adults, take more control. “It’s short and simple, I want to talk to the layman here.” However, she acknowledges that often what shapes a person is a combination of the external, which can be positive, and internal factors; people don’t develop in silos. “In this book, I just wanted to put the question mark in people’s minds to start them thinking and becoming aware of what’s binding them.” Social media has become a huge controller, where although communication is key, it’s not always the right type of communication. “I think of patterns of communication like a grandfather clock with the pendulum going in the extreme directions. We need to have a little bit of balance to our lives.”

Year of the Snake 2013

What Snake means for Canada Local fortune teller Sherman Tai writes about how Canada will be affected by the Year of the Snake. Government will be stable in 2013. The Harper government needs to decrease reliance on the American economy, strengthen its relationship and trade with Asia, to invest in high tech, telecommunications and natural resources industries. Reduced immigration and return of Chinese to their home country will continue to weaken the Chinese market. Discontent within the provinces continue to increase, particularly with British Columbia and with the upcoming election. The Liberals will not be able to stay in power and it will change to an NDP government. In the year of the Snake, natural disasters will be relatively fewer than in the past. There will be fewer wind problems and forest fires. However, climate continues to fluctuate at extremes. Water, fire and traffic accidents tend to be more prevalent. Safety continues to be a problem with increasing organized gang shootings, youth violence, homicide and more home invasions. Though economy is not improved much, it is stable and is something Canadians can feel comfortable with. Canada’s economy will be relatively better than the U.S. The GDP is expected to be about 2 - 2.5 per cent. The unemployment rate is expected to range from 6 - 7.5

A

P L A C E

per cent. Precious metals, mining products and natural gas will be relatively stable this year. Real estate will continue to be stable, particularly in British Columbia and Ontario, where the beginning of the year will have a good market with increasing values. However, it will tend to fluctuate, so it is not advised to invest in real estate, especially in B.C. What we will see, particularly in B.C., are initial increases in real estate values in the late spring and early summer; however, in the fall, after September, there will be a large correction, especially in Westside Vancouver, Vancouver city centre and Richmond. I believe the Harper government will create stronger ties with Asia in terms of trading, economy and politics, which will encourage export to Asia, especially with wood, crude oil, telecommunications and high tech. There is also no hope of eliminating overseas income taxation, which will further increase the number of Asian immigrants particularly China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan returning to their home country and thus there is continued decrease in spending amongst the Chinese community. For the full prediction, visit www.shermantai.com. Look out for the next edition of the Richmond News to see Tai’s horoscope predictions for the Year of the Snake.

Trio compete in PCAHA scholarship tourney

Seafair and Richmond Minor were well-represented in the 36th annual Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association (PCAHA) Midget Scholarship Tournament, held Jan 13-19. The event showcases graduating midget age talent from throughout the PCAHA. Players are nominated, based on academic and sportsmanship criteria, and attend tryouts to be selected to one of four regional teams, which then compete for the Fred “Cyclone” Taylor Memorial Cup. The tournament was founded in 1978 by the late Bruce Allison of Richmond who made a huge contribution to the game at all levels, including terms as PCAHA and B.C. Amateur Hockey Association president. He believed too many players were leaving their home associations to play at the junior level and wanted something to encourage them to stay and focus on their high school studies. The tournament was initially a three team format and expanded to four in 1985. Canada Dry was the original sponsor before the Vancouver Canucks Alumni

Richmond hockey players Hasret Sidhu, Tanoshi Mizushima and Ben Kiang won bronze playing for Team Avalanche at Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association’s 36th annual Midget Scholarship Tournament. Association came onboard in 2006. Representing Richmond Minor were Hasret Sidhu and Ben Kiang, while Seafair’s Tanoshi Mizushima also participated.

All three played for the Greater Vancouver Avalanche, which won a thrilling bronze medal game in overtime 6-5, after battling back from a two goal deficit. Mizushima was awarded

the game MVP as he notched the first of the Avalanche goals. Sidhu played on the Avalanche blueline and finished the tournament with a goal, while a Kiang added three goals and an assist.

Richmond Minor was also well-represented on the coaching front as A1 mentors Bayne Koen and George Diamantopoulos guided the Fraser Valley Oilers to the tournament championship.

Avalanche win pair of tournaments

January proved to be a busy and successful month for Richmond Special Olympics’ Avalanche “B” floor hockey team. The Avalanche captured tournaments in Delta and Abbotsford in consecutive weeks. In Delta, the locals rolled to wins over Burnaby (8-1), Langley (6-5) and Abbotsford (10-1) to take home the top prize. The momentum continued in Abbotsford where the Avalanche faced a longer road to reach the top of the podium. They defeated North Shore (9-3), Abbotsford (5-0), Victoria (10-2) and Surrey (4-1). The team features: Aaquil Datoo, Salaudin Manji, Brayden Pawer, Robert English, Keith Rooyakkers, Dick Richard, Kris Cohen, Troy Killer, Garrett Baydra, Nick Johnston, Ryan Stewart, David Ton and goalie Vincent Li, who allowed just 13 goals over seven games in the two tournaments. The coaches are Glen Ellison, Dave Showers and Geoff English. Next up for the Avalanche is a tournament in Coquitlam Feb. 17.

Vataiki and Gill headed to Vegas tourney with B.C. Sevens team Richmond’s Tomasi Vataiki and Harjun Gill have been named to the B.C. U18 rugby team that will be competing at next month’s Las Vegas Invitational Sevens Tournament. Vataiki is a key member of the program at McRoberts secondary and plays at the club level for Bayside. Gill is a product of the Richmond Rugby Club and attends St. Georges. The B.C. squad will head into North America’s largest invitational youth sevens tournament as defending champion in the High School Elite Division.

After spending much of the Fall season holding regional and provincial identification sessions and development camps, the Las Vegas tournament kicks off an exciting 2013 schedule which will see the top players move onto competitions in Hong Kong and Victoria. The program is part of a pathway designed to identify and develop young athletes who will be best qualified to represent Canada with distinction at future Rugby World Cups and Olympic Games. “This tour will expose these young athletes to a full weekend of the international rugby sevens experience,” B.C. coach

Shane Thompson said. “They will be prepared in a sevens environment, compete in a sevens tournament and will get to see top level international teams competing at the Las Vegas Sevens, an official stop on the International Rugby Board World Series Sevens circuit.” These are exciting times for the BCEY7s program, now in its third year of existence, as their first graduate — Abbotsford’s Justin Douglas — was selected to play for the Canadian senior men’s national team this past fall. “Being able to watch the senior inter-

national athletes compete will give our younger players exposure to the opportunities ahead and they can see first hand the work they will need to do in order to play at the next level,” Thompson added. This year’s Elite Division opposition includes State-rep teams from Utah and Washington as well as Canadian rivals Ontario and regional side Dog River Howlers. Last year’s runners-up USA AllAmericans will also provide stiff competition. The Vegas invitational runs from Feb. 8-10.

Sports Panther Cheer team produces top score at Pacific Starz Panther Cheer’s competitive program got the new year off to an impressive start at the ATC Pacific Starz Championships in Chilliwack last weekend. The Richmond club sent four teams to the second competition of the season and all came through with encouraging performances. The contingent was led by the Youth Level 2 Team (11 and under) which not only won its division but was named the event’s Grand Champion for earning the highest score of the 22 participating entries. Panther’s Senior Level 3 team (ages 18 and under) had an amazing run but a judging error landed them in third out of nine teams. Unfortunately, the

Panther Cheer teams performed well in Chilliwack last weekend.

nature of the sport doesn’t allow you to go back and change results but the girls are happy knowing they would have tied for first in what is always one of the largest and most challenging divisions at any cheer competition. The club’s Senior Level 2 Team had a challenging week, having to remove an athlete from the routine due to injury, but pulled together and came eighth. The Level 1 mini team (ages 6-8) placed fourth out of 10 entries. All Panther teams are working hard for this weekend’s Cheerfest Nationals in Abbotsford. On the horizon, is the first American competition of the year in Tacoma, WA and the club’s own event at the Olympic Oval on Mar. 2.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: Secrets and ‘levers of power rise quietly around you, like hillocks on a prairie. This week and next, push steadily forward toward an investment, financial, lifestyle, health or intimacy goal – especially Friday/Saturday, when a new link or opportunity could occur. (But reject any idea or opening that occurs between 10 p.m. PST Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday.) Sunday’s for romance, pleasure – but stick with the known. Tackle chores Monday/ Tuesday. Relationships, negotiations, a meeting with someone who makes something deep stir within you, new horizons arrive Wednesday/Thursday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships come front and center over the next two weeks, Leo – especially this Friday/Saturday. ‘Relationships’ includes emotional and practical or business links, new opportunities, fresh horizons (and possible relocation) – co-operation and opposition. Be diplomatic, but eager to join. Approach others, praise others, seek common ground. Sunday’s for domestic rest – nap, love family, turn on that old music. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – singles could meet a future mate prospect. Couples find pleasure. To work, and guard health, midweek. Smile at the world Friday/Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Only two weeks left of work and health concerns, Virgo. Might as well plunge into those chores, especially Friday/ Saturday, when a rather significant new task, even new employment, could begin. (Forget resumes: be direct.) Sunday’s restless, not much use. Home chores run into confusion Monday morning (spouse has doubts?) but this p.m. to midday Tuesday offers big steps forward on the home front if you make the effort. Repair, decorate, landscape, prepare kids’ future(s). Romantic and creative urges fill midweek – an incident or alluring person offers a new view of mating.

Aries March 21 - April 19: Your popularity rides a sweet wave; social delights, entertainment, flirtation and light romance fill your days – especially Friday/ Saturday. This is a great time to join a group. Still, your personal clout is beginning to wane slightly, so avoid being forceful, especially in practical or ‘dominance’ contests. Sunday’s for secrets, intimacy, financial ponderings. Someone’s attracted to you Monday/ Tuesday; far travel, school, law and cultfure go well also – after Monday morn. Be ambitious Wednesday: you’ll succeed if you down-tone rebelliousness, opt for communication, affection. Taurus April 20-May 20: Be ambitious, Taurus, especially Friday/Saturday. (This can affect any area – for instance, if you’re buying a condo, buy ‘up.’) Community status, career, relations with bosses, parents and VIPs, are part of the picture. Higher-ups favour you all February – propose plans, projects. Someone wants to be ‘friends,’ but he/she could lead you to compromising situations – he/she’s nervous, assertive. Be diplomatic Sunday. Large finances, sexual intimacy lure you, and succeed Monday noon (not earlier) into Tuesday. Gentle love, learning, law or travel arise Wednesday/Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A gentle, understanding mood continues. Seize this time, this atmosphere: seek love, attend cultural venues, travel afar, attend/apply to a school, seek publishing/media opportunities – especially Friday/Saturday. Tackle routine or non-challenging chores Sunday. Relationships fill Monday/Tuesday – after Monday morning, these links hold opportunities and success. Tell your mate, ‘I want to do this, because it will benefit you.’ Midweek brings sexual urges, financial astuteness, and revealing detective work. Friendships challenge, but wisdom and love bring you luck – and travel?

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Games, sports, pleasure, romance, beauty, creativity and self-expression call you – answering will bring luck, especially this Friday/ Saturday. This month could start or further one of the most significant romances of your life. (If you’re married, joy comes from spouse, kids, and adventures – take a family trip.) There is serious love and easy love. Your best ‘mate prospect’ has a load of work lowered onto his/her shoulders: be understanding. Unattached Librans might fall for a co-worker. Spend frugally Sunday. Friends, calls, trips Monday/Tuesday. Home, family Wednesday/Thursday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The main accent this week and next lies on homes, family, security, property, gardening, nutrition, stomach and soul. (Funny how these last two are linked in many religions and mantic arts.) Friday/Saturday might start a new project or trend in these zones. Get plenty of rest (power naps) and show your family your loving heart. (Unlike January, February spreads a balm of affection through your domicile.) Your energy’s high Sunday: tackle minor problems. Chase money, buy/sell, Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings errands, friends, paperwork, a nd a potentially great investment (a home?). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The two weeks ahead are not important, but they sure are active. You’ll call, write, answer, visit, perform errands, paperwork, and perhaps travel. A new venture could start in any of these Friday/Saturday. Earlier, Sunday’s for rest, quiet activities. Your energy and pizzazz soar Monday/Tuesday – start projects, relationships after Monday morning (a confusing time). Make money or shop Wednesday. This day might end one link, begin another; or, after disagreement, bring a stronger love. A new person might develop into loving friendship ‘with benefits’ – even into marriage.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money for the next two weeks, Cap, especially this Friday/Saturday, when a new money-making project could start. (DON’T start it between 10 p.m. Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday – PST.) Your income luck remains good all month; you’ll have enough to purchase a luxury item. You grow more assertive in communications – that’s good, but don’t overdo it. Sunday’s hopeful, friendly. Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Monday/Tuesday – approach government or other agencies.Your energy and charm return, buoyantly, Wednesday/Thursday – home frustrates, but work/money please! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, charm and effectiveness reach a yearly high this week and next, Aquarius, especially this Friday/Saturday. If you haven’t yet begun a significant project, do so now. Sunday’s for career and prestige, but nothing’s solid here. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/ Tuesday – a wish could come true. Get out, plan entertainment, join a group – they’ll ‘love’ you. Retreat to catch a second breath Wednesday/Thursday: rest, contemplate and plan. (The best plans might be based on what occurred earlier this week.) Friday/Saturday, chase what/who you want: desire’s lucky. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Continue to lie low, rest, recuperate, contemplate and plan. Your clout in the world is at a low ebb for the two weeks ahead; but your skill and effect in ‘background’ areas is admirable. Background = spirit, charity, government, warehousing, administration, institutions, meditation, yoga, etc. Jump into these, especially Friday/Saturday, when a ‘new note’ (though a slender one) might fill this arena. Sunday’s idealistic, intellectual, mellow. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday. Happiness, hopes for the future, perhaps a light romantic notion, arise Wednesday (watch money) and Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
