Carol Day throws hat in for Tories Anti-pipeline activist, former trustee takes on MLA Yap BY ALAN CAMPBELL
Outspoken local campaigner Carol Day has emerged as a surprise runner in the race for Richmond-Steveston in next month’s B.C. election. Day, a former school trustee who twice failed to win a seat on city council, announced Thursday she is running for the BC Conservatives in a bid to topple longtime Liberal incumbent John Yap. Day, who has campaigned for years against the proposed jet fuel delivery plans, said it was — Carol Day high time Richmond had a change. “We need stronger voice.” “I’ve already had people today telling me that they’re glad they now have a choice,” said Day. “It’s certainly time for a change in this riding.” Day said top of her agenda will be the jet fuel delivery proposal to YVR, adding that she can’t believe Yap has “still to take a position on.” Although she’s been courted for the spot by the party since last summer, Day said she only decided three weeks ago to take the leap.
“We need a stronger voice.”

Track crime on city map BY YVONNE ROBERTSON Special to the News
A digital map detailing crime hot spots in Richmond has been updated to be more accessible and current. “We want to make it more accessible to the public so that they can make betterinformed decisions and be better aware of their surroundings,” said city spokesperson Ted Townsend. The map provides data for three types of property crimes — residential break-andenter, commercial break-and-enter, and theft of auto — dating back to January 2012. A user selects a date range and one or all of the types of crimes, then the map slowly populates with colour-coded dots. Clicking
on a dot will provide details of the crime such as how it was committed, at what time and prevention tips. “All we want to do is provide people with the steps they can take to not be a victim,” said Cpl. Sherrdean Turley. Criminals don’t usually target any specific neighbourhood in Richmond, according to both Turley and Townsend. “Every neighbourhood can be safe and secure,” said Townsend. “It’s the homeowner’s responsibility to be part of ensuring this, by locking up and being more aware.” Email alerts are also available where businesses and residents can send their name and street address to email@example.com (for residents) or firstname.lastname@example.org (for businesses) to receive an alert.
April Fools Day fire no joke, stabbing victim stable It was no April Fool for Richmond Fire-Rescue crews in the early hours of Monday when they were called out to deal with a fire at Richmond Plywood on Vulcan Way. Areas above and around a drying kiln were shrouded in smoke when crews arrived shortly before 5 a.m., just north of the Home Depot outlet store. Arriving fire crews saw white smoke coming from the end of the building, but it turned out the fire was confined to the roof/attic space at the plywood mill. BY ALAN CAMPBELL

A memorial motorcycle procession to mark the 10th anniversary of 9-11 will start at Richmond’s River Rock Casino. The 9-11 Memorial Ride and Remembrance Service will glide out of the casino parking lot on Sunday, Sept. 11 at 8 a.m.
“The fire was difficult to control as it was isolated to a portion of the roof structure that is structurally difficult to access, as it was over 25 feet in the air and constructed of heavy timber,” said deputy fire chief Tim Wilkinson. “The firefighters worked with the Richmond Plywood employees to confine the fire to the area of origin and finally wrap it all up after some nine hours of steady work.” In total, 29 fire fighters attended the blaze, along with nine trucks, and spent nine hours deal-
ing with the scene. Water sprinklers and a deluge system at the plant also helped to keep the fire to one particular area. Fire investigators from Richmond Fire-Rescue are actively searching for a cause of the fire but remain optimistic that it is fairly routine and not suspicious in any way. Engineers are also assessing the significant structural damage to the steel beams and damage to the solid wood beams that were exposed to excessive fire condi-
tions. No injuries were reported at this incident.
Police were called to a suspected daylight stabbing in the 6200 block of No 3 Road on Wednesday around 2:30 p.m. According to Richmond RCMP, one man received minor injuries to his arm and was taken to hospital. He was expected to be released shortly after being treated. No other details of the incident have been released.

Focusing on a passion
BY PHILIP RAPHAEL
Steveston’s Kerri-Jo Stewart trained her lens on the relationship between horses and the people of Iran and Turkmenistan that has lasted centuries.
Special to the News
The young boy’s lips are pursed, his teeth bared with determination. A cane for a jockey’s whip is carried gently in his left hand as he rides high in the saddle. His horse clamps down on its leather bit while the crowd of helmeted and goggled riders astride their steeds close in on the leader down the stretch. The frenzied action from the group raises clouds of dust from the makeshift, mud racetrack as behind them the setting sun casts streams of yellow and orange hues. It’s another day at the races in Iran — a country with a long history connected with equine mastery — one that Richmond photographer Kerri-Jo Stewart took a picture of during a recent visit. The composition expertly captures the drama and tension of the race, a moment digitally etched in time. In short, it’s visually stunning. Yet it’s not judged to be her best. In fact, for her work in Iran and nearby Turkmenistan, the self-taught photographer recently won the honour of photographer of the year, plus a pair of awards in the 2013 Professional Photographers of Canada competition. “I was pretty surprised,” admitted Stewart who, after moving to Steveston from her farm in Maple Ridge about 18 months ago, decided to seriously pick up a

to begin. And it started with a strange email she was all too ready to banish to her spam folder. “I thought it was spam, actually, because it said I had an invitation to come to Turkmenistan,” Stewart said. “It had the president’s name on it, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, so when it started off an invitation from the president, I deleted it. But I went back into my spam folder to check on it and realized it was real.” The invite was from the country’s horsebreeding department called the Turkmen Atlary. Officials from Turkmenistan, which was a republic of the Soviet Union in Central Asia until 1991, had seen Stewart’s book online and were asking her to visit their country to photograph the annual Day of the Horse celebrations, as well as their 20th anniversary of independence. Intrigued with the offer, she packed her bags and made for Turkmenistan where she shot enough photos for another three books — two for the Day of the Horse — and one on the independence festivities. From Turkmenistan, a group in Iran invited her to take pictures of horses in remote areas of that country where she ended up spending two months. “Where I visited in northern Iran would be the equivalent of a community near the Arctic — like some little Inuit village. They didn’t have running water or electricity.”

With all this tunnel talk, the Richmond Chamber of Commerce decided to take matters into its own hands and host an open online survey. The survey asked respondents to vote on one or all five options that were presented for the George Massey Tunnel Replacement project. “We wanted to get a man-on-the-street perspective,” said chair Barry Grabowski. “This gave us a way to get a sense of what the community was thinking. Sometimes these government projects don’t always reach everyone in the communities.” Out of 245 respondents, 126 were in favour of replacing the existing tunnel with a new bridge, making up 51 per cent, while 119 opposed. The second most popular option was to maintain the existing tunnel and build a new crossing along the 99 corridor, with 81 in favour, making up 33 per cent. The project recently completed Phase Two where the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure announced five options for the tunnel. Public consultations were held in Richmond, Surrey and Delta in March to provide feedback on the choices. The final day for input was Tuesday. To see the survey results, visit www.richmondchamber.ca. For more information on the tunnel project, visit http://engage.gov.bc.ca/masseytunnel.

KERRI-JO STEWART PHOTO
This photo taken in Ashgabat, in the northwest of Turkmenistan, won Kerri-Jo Stewart the award for first time entry in the Professional Photographers of Canada
Horses: Images earn acclaim Continued from page 5 She told the residents they needed a hospital and a school. So, she got in touch with the Iranian government to help get rolling on building the facilities. “That’s why I ended up staying there a couple of months.” And that’s where she went to the races. “In Iran they have regular horse racing around tracks, like we do,” she said. “And the youngsters are paid jockeys. Some of the kids are probably 15 or 16. But in the countryside they don’t have tracks. They just race. And if you’re small, can ride and go fast, you can race.” Spectators contribute to a winner’s pot, so a small fortune is rarely made unless the crowds are large. When Stewart returned from her travels, she joined the Professional Photographers of Canada and submitted four pictures from her various trips to the group’s annual competition. In addition to the photographer of the year award, she ended up winning in the category of Best First Submission for an image of a horse with the backdrop of a stunning sunrise in Turkmenistan.

Getting back to business What a long, strange trip it’s been. B.C. voters let out a howl of outrage when the government announced it would bring in the HST to replace the two-tax system shortly after the last provincial election, though the HST was explicitly not part of the B.C. Liberals’ campaign. That howl built into a crescendo after the new system went into effect in 2010. Those opposing the HST got organized, led by former premier Bill Vander Zalm, of all people. It wasn’t until the issue went to referendum in 2011 that the voices of business owners could be heard. Those in the film industry actually preferred the HST, as it would give much needed tax relief to B.C. productions, allowing the province to compete with Ontario, which had also introduced the HST — though not with the same back-door approach as B.C. While many small business owners didn’t want the HST in the first place, they were also loathe to return to the old provincial sales, and goods and services tax-system. But B.C. voters delivered a stern message to the government that monkeying with the provincial tax system without public consultation was not acceptable — the referendum results were in favour of ditching the HST. It took some time, but finally, as of Monday, we switched back. Who knows how different things would have been if the HST had not been thrust upon us three years ago. Countless taxpayer dollars would have been saved, businesses would not have suffered, and perhaps people would even have been receptive to the idea of tweaking the system — if they were given the choice. Next time, please ask voters before implementing all those “great” ideas, OK?
Don’t just build, repair The Editor, Re: “City opposes farmland crossing option for Massey Tunnel,” News, March 13. I read with interest about the planning for a new tunnel or bridge to replace the George Massey Tunnel. What we also need is for the City of Richmond and the highway contractor to address the lack of maintenance that is being done to the roadways. What’s the point in planning new bridges and tunnels when they can’t look after the existing roadways we have now. Steveston Highway and No. 5 Road improvements are at a standstill and has left the motoring public with a strip of road that is filled with dangerous holes, drop offs and unfinished pavement. The overpass at Highway 99 is long overdue for replacement but the city powers still insist on cramming as many new buildings and homes in the area without the network of roads to service the amount of traffic that goes through the area now. As for the tunnel, when was the last time the contractor actually sent out a work crew to clean up all the accumulated rocks, sand and other debris that get thrown around from the tunnel, its approaches and the on- and off- ramps? These turn into dangerous missiles, taking out windshields and I’m sure it causes it’s share of accidents. This is the first look many of our first time visitors get of the City of Richmond and it is not a pretty one. David Neil Richmond

City moves toward a sustainable future Richmond offers an enviable quality of life for our residents. We’ve been ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world. Even as we’ve grown to a city of 200,000, we’ve been able to preserve and protect much of the natural beauty around us. About half of Richmond remains open space as parks, trails, farmland and natural areas. We have a strong and diverse economy. But can we sustain it? Throughout our region and around the world sustainability is a top of mind issue. Environmental, social and economic issues can all challenge our ability to maintain the quality of life we now enjoy and to pass it on to future generations. Sustainability is one of the top priorities for council. We have adopted a Sustainability Framework to coordinate and foster our efforts, measure their success and set new benchmarks. Sustainability was also a major focus of the new Official Community Plan, recently adopted by council. To be successful, we must focus on all three pillars of sustainability: social, economic and environmental. An example of this is our new Social Development Strategy, which is intended to guide the city’s decisions and resource allocations on social development matters over the next 10 years. This includes how we meet community needs in
Coun. Bill McNulty CITY SCENE
such areas as child care, affordable housing, diversity services and programs for youths and older adults. To learn more, visit www.richmond.ca/socialplan. Later this year, the city will launch work on an updated Economic Development Strategy. A major focus will be ensuring we have a resilient local economy, which will provide stability in good times and bad, continue to create new jobs in our community and focus on business retention, expansion and attraction. Most people think of the environment first when discussing sustainability. The city is working hard to reduce our environmental footprint, protect our natural environment and ensure we will have access to the resources we’ll need in the future to maintain our quality of life. A major focus of these efforts is combating climate change. The city has committed to reducing our community’s greenhouse gas emissions by 33 per cent below 2007 levels by 2020, and 80 per cent below 2007 levels by 2050. As B.C.’s only PowerSmart-certified municipality, we have a
strong record in energy conservation, which will help us achieve these targets. Another important initiative was the opening of the Alexandra District Energy Utility in the West Cambie area. Using geo-thermal energy, this utility allows us to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and provides its customers with an affordable, secure, locally-produced energy source. The city is aggressively pursuing development of other district energy utilities. There are many ways you can get involved to help ensure Richmond is a sustainable community. One opportunity is to join the city in marking Earth Day on April 21. This year, the city is encouraging all local organizations and businesses to join us in celebrating and bringing the public together for this great cause, not just for the day, but for the whole week. We are challenging community organizations to organize child-focused activities around the themes of energy; the three Rs; nature; healthy living — food; healthy living — exercise, and sustainable fashion. For more information visit www.richmond. ca/parksprograms. All participating organizations will be recognized at a special Volunteer Appreciation on Earth Day at King George Park. So start planning your event now and we will see you on Earth Day!

Coal dust not a concern
With respect to marine transport, we contracted Det Norske Veritas, an internationally recognized organization with dedicated risk professionals in more than 100 countries, to conduct a navigational risk assessment of the proposed coal barge operations on the river. We also consulted with the Fraser River Pilots, Council of Marine Carriers, Lafarge, Transport Canada, BC Chamber of Shipping, and Port Metro Vancouver. It was concluded that the new barge traffic did not represent any new operational issues or concerns that were not already being conducted or considered on the river. We see this as an exciting opportunity to strengthen Fraser Surrey Dock’s role as a key link in Canada’s Pacific Gateway and as an important contributor to our local and provincial economy. This project will deliver 50 more highpaying jobs to the 250 people we already employ at Fraser Surrey Docks. Jeff Scott President and CEO Fraser Surrey Docks

Late marriage? How about an Agreement with that? With life expectancies remaining high in Canada, it appears that we will be seeing more marriages (and perhaps more marriage-like relationships) in the coming years. With the new Family Law Act now in force, couples should at least consider a Marriage or Co-habitation agreement (once the bridal outﬁts and catering are ﬁnalized). There is much more to consider now under the new legislation, particularly if the couple have children from their prior relationships. For example, if one member of the couple has debt (or both do), that should be discussed and be part of the Agreement. The Agreement should also speciﬁcally mention any assets that are to be excluded. In addition, it is possible to make portions of the Family Law Act inapplicable to the Agreement. Estate issues should be considered as well, in which one member of the couple dies while the relationship continues. A marriage invalidates an existing Will, so the couple may also need new Wills. The Agreement should also include issues of incapacity. There is too much to just leave to chance, so it is vital for an elderly couple entering a relationship to “put it all on paper”.
Museum talk gives me indegestion or maybe a collection of small mammals (stuffed, of course) gleaned from the fields of our city. Maybe even a full edition of the minutes of Richmond council over the years! Come on, it’s long past time for the council to realize what an ass they make of themselves, when they accept a report like this. Considering how difficult they find it to sweep our streets, or repair broken sidewalks, or even provide traffic control, the very thought of spending this amount, in addition to the massive cost of the “Owe-val” gives me a case of indigestion, and makes me wonder if a sanity test should be a requirement for running for public office in the City of Richmond!

The Editor, Re: “Destination museum dream re-floated,” News, March 27. Unbelievable! That this council would even consider an expense of this magnitude, 58 million bucks in pursuit of a nebulous goal. Who, in their right mind, would choose to visit a “museum” in Richmond, when countless accredited, established, and accessable organizations exist all over the world. In addition, these museums have existing collections that can be an overriding factor in choosing a place to visit. The 58 million bucks seems to be the cost of a grandiose building, and what, I ask, is going to be placed in this monstrosity to entice visitors to pay their bucks and wander inside? Perhaps a superannuated fish boat, complete with stuffed examples of the catch,

The Editor, Re: “Coal dust concerns sail into view,” News, March 26. Fraser Surrey Docks is an experienced terminal operator. We’ve been operating here for more than 50 years, and we understand how important the Fraser River is both ecologically and as a working river. Safety is our number one priority, and we have a proven track record in safety. The same care and safety that we apply to the shipping of other products at our terminal will be applied to shipping coal. Our coal handling facilities will be built within our existing terminal footprint, and we are committed to using the best available dust suppression technology for our project. Coal will be unloaded from railcars within a fully enclosed receiving area and transferred directly onto barges via a covered conveyor system to eliminate dust. Unlike the other coal terminals in the region, no product would be stored on-site. In addition, railcars supplying our terminal will be sprayed with a protective coating to help ensure no product loss en route.

Get your free city ‘gas’ Ten charging stations offering free “gas” for electric cars have been opened up by the City of Richmond in five locations. In a bid to encourage drivers to switch to an electric vehicle and cut down on GHGs (greenhouse gas emissions), the stations will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will provide free charging of vehicles as part of a promotion. The new public charging stations are at: Steveston Community Centre; Thompson Community Centre; Cambie Community Centre; Olympic Oval and at city hall. The city has also bought four electric passenger vehicles and an additional charging station is in place at the City Works Yard to charge fleet vehicles. The $105,000 cost of the new charging stations includes joint funding from the city and up to $48,000 in grant funding through

“YOU AND THE LAW” ACCIDENTS AND REDUCED EARNING CAPACITY
What if you can’t earn as much now because you were hurt in a car crash? You may be forced to ﬁnd an easier but lower-paying job and be unable to earn as much income as before the accident. Lawyers call this loss “diminished earning capacity.” This work-related loss is just one of many losses you could be compensated for if the crash was caused by another’s fault. It’s often part of a compensation claim by personal injury plaintiffs. But what if your earnings don’t go down after the accident? Can you still get compensation for “diminished earning capacity”? After all, you might think that because your income didn’t decrease, your ability to earn hasn’t been reduced. Not true. A recent BC case illustrates that this approach is too simple and can be unfair to the injured person. Colleen, 46, was injured in two car accidents, one right after the other. She hurt her neck, shoulder and upper back, resulting in chronic widespread pain (later diagnosed as ﬁbromyalgia). Before the accidents, she was a highly energetic and motivated individual. She had a fastpaced job as an executive secretary to the president of a large organization, which she loved and was ideally suited for. All that changed. Because of her chronic pain – which she only endure with large amounts of pain killers and antiinﬂammatory medications – she could no longer handle the demands of her job, nor the three-hour (both ways) commute it involved. Colleen sold her house to move to a smaller home with fewer stairs. Because of her injuries, she also found a new easier job where the commute was only 20 minutes. Having to switch jobs “was a

huge blow” and it “was far less rewarding in terms of job satisfaction,” said the trial judge who initially decided her case. Yet, by happenstance, her new job paid her a better salary, and so she didn’t suffer an immediate loss of earnings. Still, her lawyers were able to prove that she suffered a reduction in her capacity to earn (which the appeal court agreed with). The circle of secretarial or administrative positions that she could compete for in future had narrowed because of the limitations imposed by her injuries. In short, she became less marketable as an employee and less capable overall of taking advantage of all employment opportunities that might come her way. As well, the trial judge concluded that there was a real and substantial possibility that Colleen would have moved up in her organization’s hierarchy to a director position had she been able to stay there – at a higher salary and with improved health and pension beneﬁts. (This particular ﬁnding was over-turned on appeal as speculative only, reducing her compensation award somewhat.) And there was a real possibility that because of her injuries (which had plateaued or possibly could even worsen), her working career would likely end earlier than it would have if the accident hadn’t occurred. Overall, she proved that she had suffered a loss in her capacity to earn future income, as conﬁrmed by the appeal court. The BC Court of Appeal ultimately awarded Colleen $275,000 for diminished earning capacity. If you’re injured in an accident, consult your lawyer. He or she can help you receive the fair compensation that you may be entitled to receive.
Waterfront inﬁll unlikely
The City of Richmond looks likely to steer clear of infilling a near two-acre site on Steveston’s waterfront. Known as “Lot H,” the water-covered wedge in front of the Imperial Landing boardwalk has long since been considered as a future waterfront facility or green space. But a study, carried out by a marine engineering firm, states that infilling the site with 5,000 truckloads of construction waste would cause too much disruption to the area. However, city staff have been asked to look into infilling Crown lands in the area instead, which would be less costly and disruptive.

Vonnugut’s dystopia may not be so far off EVERYTHING ! D E H S A L S Anna
A couple days ago I was randomly struck by the memory of a short story my class studied in English several years ago. It was one of those dystopic texts that leaves you gasping for reality. Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnugut Jr. is based in a world, where everyone has been “made equal” through handicaps. Those who are better than average in appearance must wear hideous masks, those who are strong are forced to wear sandbags to hinder their movements and those with a brain capable of any form of deep thought are required to wear a radio attached to their ear. Love, beauty, skill and achievement are viewed with
suspicion and jealously — they are seen as social and political threats, stains on society YOUTH that must be dealt with like a disease. Well thank goodness we don’t live in that world... eh? Yet, it occurred to me how we may have more in common with this horrible existence than we would like to believe, specifically in terms of a thought disrupter. One just has to go on the bus or walk on some campus to notice practically everyone is plugged into their music player in one form of another.
That, and every student I know (including myself) will readily admit to keeping VIEWS Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr open in their browser while doing homework, just so we can check for new notifications every once in a while. Ok, so we’re good at splitting our attention. Just because we would sometimes rather listen to music than put up with silence or the noisy bustle of an environment doesn’t mean we aren’t capable of thinking. There have been a lot of articles written about multi-
On Select Models
tasking and the appearance of attention deficit disorders, and lack of focus in youth today. It is a problem that, to be honest, kind of scares me. Like the short story, these intermittent checks can prevent us from really, truly thinking about anything beyond the surface. Depth of analysis, depth of character, and depth of personality, are called so for a reason. It requires the effort of digging. And this digging is nearly impossible when there is always a distraction to draw us away the moment before we stick the shovel in the ground. Everyone is always plugged in. Why? I mean, thank goodness we’re not wearing masks and sandbags, right?

The Gateway Theatre presents: Moliere’s Don Juan An all new adaptation in association with Blackbird Theatre. Don Juan is a beguiling rogue and prodigious womanizer who rejects conventional morality, defying God, heaven and hell. His servant Sganarelle is appalled by his master’s behaviour; their arguments are a feast of wit. Everyone wants to reform the Don, but two sword fights and three amorous adventures later, it seems his rebel spirit will carry him through in the end. But will it? Molière’s most scandalous comedy gets an all-new treatment by Blackbird Theatre. Directed by John Wright. Tickets for adults are $47-$48 and students $30. Location: Gateway Theatre, 6500 Gilbert Rd.

Sharks Mattu & Hamaguchi to be part of all-star game
A memorable high school basketball season will end in style for Anmol Mattu and Les Hamaguchi The Steveston-London Sharks standout point guard and longtime coach have been selected for the upcoming B.C. High School All-Star Game on April 21 at the Langley Events Centre. Mattu is one of 20 players chosen. Eligible players for the game must be in Grade 12 and chosen as a league/zone tournament all-star or MVP this past season at the “A” “AA” or “AAA” levels. The fiveyear starter capped off her high school in grand style by leading the Sharks to their first-ever B.C. tournament berth. StevestonLondon also become the first Richmond school to qualify for the provincials since 2001. Mattu was an all-star at the Lower Mainland Championships where the Sharks clinched a B.C. berth with a third place finish. She went on to lead the provincial tournament in scoring as the Sharks placed ninth. Hamaguchi will be coaching the “home team” that will feature Mattu in the line-up. He returned to the provincial “AAA” tournament as a coach for the first time since 1996. Prior to taking over the StevestonLondon senior girls program, Hamaguchi enjoyed some highly successful stints with the Richmond Colts and Steveston Packers. The game is slated for 2 p.m. Meanwhile, Mattu’s future head coach is

Steveston-London Sharks guard Anmol Mattu has been selected to play in the upcoming B.C. High School Girls All-Star Game at the Langley Events Centre
looking forward to working with her over the next five years. She officially signed with the University of Calgary a day after the provincials. “Anmol is going to be an exciting Dino to watch over the next five years,” said Damain Jennings, the reigning Canada West Coach of the Year who also guides Great Britain’s national women’s team. “She epitomizes where the program is going in her leadership skills, desire to continuously improve, her academic focus and the style of basketball she wants to help shape here in Calgary. “She immediately made an impact on me and I’m looking forward to helping her achieve her performance goals and service the Dinos team.” Mattu had various post-secondary options to play basketball, but ultimately chose the University of Calgary due to a number of factors. “The main reason I chose Calgary is because Damian promised to challenge me both mentally and physically as a basketball player, thus I am excited to train with him and the Dinos for the next five years,” said Mattu. “I think Damian’s European and international experience will help me become the best player that I can be. The great education at the University of Calgary, along with the amazing coaching, team, and facility, set the university apart from others. Overall, I believe the University of Calgary and the Dinos are the perfect fit for me.”

The future is bright for the girls basketball program at McMath secondary. The Wildcats Grade 9 team wrapped up an outstanding season with a seventh place finish at the B.C. Junior Girls Championships at the Langley Events Centre. The Steveston school entered the 16-team tournament as the 10th seed and more than held its own against opponents with a mix of Grade 9 and 10 players. McMath opened the championships with a 40-32 win over No. 7 Mt Baker of Cranbrook and then battle hard in a 58-34 loss to eventual champion and No. 1 ranked WJ Mouat Hawks of Abborsford. Following a close 40-36 defeat to No. 6 Kelowna, the girls closed on the tournament with a dominating 41-17 victory against No. 5 Claremont of Victoria.
Jessica Jones was named to the second all-star team. It was a good reflection of McMath coach Anne Gillrie-Carre’s 41-year involvement in high school basketball as she coached Jones’ mother — Teresa DeBou — back in 1984 with the Steveston Packers senior girls team. The Wildcats roster also features: Justine McCaskill, Bonnie Leung, Claire Reynolds, Claire Siqueira, Kyra Loat, Mikayla Weissler, Jessica Zawada, Hannah Partridge, Ellie Reid, Carmen Milne, Montana Leonard, Ali Burns, Julia Wilson, Denise Su and Jessica Folk. The coaching staff also includes Nathan Kishi and Brandon Brock, while the team is managed by Gillian Partridge. The team looks forward to continuing their progress and look to be well-positioned to earn McMath its first-ever provincial tournament berth at the “AAA” level.
Canadians haunted by Giants in B.C. Major Midget semi-finals
It’s a playoff script that’s all too familiar to the Greater Vancouver Canadians. For the fifth consecutive year the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League rivals met in the post-sea-
son and the result has been the same each time. The Giants prevailed 5-3 in a third and deciding game and went on to repeat as champions by defeating the Okanagan Rockets in the finals.
Please be advised that the Annual General Meeting of Seafair Minor Hockey Association will be held on Monday, April 15, 2013 at 7:00p.m. in the Richmond Cultural Centre Performance Hall (Richmond Public Library),

The Canadians were 20 minutes away from completing a semi-final sweep when the Giants rallied for a pair of third period goals in a 4-3 game two victory. Greater Vancouver led 3-1 after 20 minutes in game three before the Giants stormed back with three unanswered goals in the second period to take control of the series for good. Greater Vancouver surprised the favoured hosts by rallying for a 6-4 victory in the series opener. Seafair product and WHL-bound Glenn Gawdin finished tied for top spot among all playoff scorers with 11 points in six games, including seven goals. Gawdin will be playing in Swift Current next season. Otis Goldman also enjoyed a productive postseason with nine points, including four goals.
