Meet the new kid in politics Chance to serve as MLA fulfills late husband’s wishes

BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

You could readily understand if Teresa Wat thought about casting her gaze heavenwards the night of the B.C. election. But it wouldn’t have been in response to the astonishing come-from-behind win by her fellow B.C. Liberals — a result many pollsters and media types predicted had a slim to zero chance of happening. No, an upturned look would have been an appreciative gesture recognizing the driving force behind her decision to enter the fray of provincial politics — her late husband, Stephen Lee. “You know, I was thinking about my husband,” said Wat, the 63-year-old rookie candidate who topped the polls in the riding of Richmond Centre in convincing fashion. “I thought, thank God, you chose a path for me.” Wat says she was inspired to put her name on the ballot paper when Lee, who passed away from lung cancer in 2011, told her she needed to re-align her life to include giving back to the community. It was a philosophy he carried with him all his life as the second oldest in a family of nine. Lee had to forsake a university education to become an elementary school teacher in Hong Kong and help support his parents and siblings. “He was very involved in the community, very involved in the student movement,” said Wat, who met her husband in journalism school in Hong Kong. “I am just the opposite type of person — very hard working, a very diligent student getting straight As. He thought people should be more rounded, more balanced. “He told me ‘don’t just concentrate on your own work. You are a good employee, you do your best. But spend some time getting involved in the community.’ “But being me, I am always trying to do one job at a time. I am a perfectionist. I always want to get the best result I can.” But just how giving her husband was to others

Rookie politician Teresa Wat says she enjoyed door-knocking in the riding of Richmond Centre and is looking forward to getting on with representing her constituents in the B.C. Legislature. wasn’t apparent to Wat until she happened upon an example while in California for a family wedding in the mid-1990s. “We were walking in a shopping mall and a middle-aged lady came over and said, “Sir.” They called their teachers sir in Hong Kong,” Wat said. “‘Sir, I am so grateful to you, Mr. Lee, for my school fees and textbooks.’ It turned out she was one of his former elementary students. And he paid their school fees if they were poor. Then I knew just how great a guy he was.” Wat carried that with her over the years as she steadily built her career in media — currently, she is president and COO of AM 1320 Mainstream

Broadcasting Corporation, a multi-cultural radio station. But finding the hours to get involved in the community proved hard after leaving Hong Kong for Canada in 1989. “Once you come to a new country, things can be quite challenging,” Wat said, adding it wasn’t until her husband was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2003 and given a year to live that she slowed down the pace of her life. The diagnosis was understandably hard to accept. And the situation was made worse by the fact that the same day doctors broke the news to her and her husband, Wat’s only sister died. see Wat page 6

Information on how accessible some public buildings and businesses are just got much easier to find. On Wednesday morning, Richmond became the first municipality in the country to adopt planat.com, a digital media tool that catalogs and rates the level of access of buildFor video ings and open spaces. The tool, developed through the Richmond-based Rick Hansen Foundation, provides data on sites compiled from the experience of every day users who upload their reviews on accessibility, and those businesses that have been professionally or self-reviewed. Planat uses a five-star rating system to judge the level of accessibility. To date, more than 17,000 venues in 20 countries have been reviewed and added to see Planat page 4

City spokesman says Big City Spenders report is a ‘fail’ B.C.’s new auditor general for municipalities announced Wednesday that two of her first performance audits will look at cost containment measures in 18 local governments. The announcement came on the same day that the Canadian Federation of Independent Business released a Big City Spenders report

that suggests Canadian municipalities — which often complain about not having enough money to provide services and infrastructure — have a spending problem rather than a revenue one. The assertion followed a look at the country’s four biggest cities — Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Calgary — that showed spending

over the last 12 years has risen by more than 55 per cent, far in excess of population growth and the rate of inflation. The CFIB also compiled figures for four Metro Vancouver cities, including Surrey, Richmond, West Vancouver and Burnaby. The City of Richmond argues the report ignores the fact that many services are driven by

customer demand; if YVR, for instance, wants more police officers, the city has to provide them, which increases spending. “They’re only looking at one side of the balance sheet,” said city spokesperson Ted Townsend. “This is a simplistic analysis. If this was turned in as an economics paper for a university course, it

would get a failing grade.” Officials in Richmond maintain they have kept property taxes at the rate of inflation, raising funds through other user-pay fees for noncore functions to provide services. The report was released ahead of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities convention Friday. — Vancouver Sun

Don’t paint all Chinese with same cultural brush

! The final part the Building Bridges series takes a look at the varied Chinese ethnicities and how they’ve settled differently into Richmond. BY ALAN CAMPBELL

U

acampbell@richmond-news.com

nder the surface of most contentious issues in life, there’s rarely a simple black and white solution. So when it comes to the heated debate over how much Chinese language should or should not be used on signs, it’s no surprise Richmond’s “Chinese” community boasts more than one dimension. A mere scratch on the veneer of the city’s Asian façade will reveal at least four ethnicities: Hong Kong; Taiwanese; South East Asian and mainland Chinese. Each are endowed with a different heritage and each, when immigrating over the last few decades, bring to Richmond’s table a

mixed bag of languages, dialects, foods and traditions. However, some, it appears, are more accepting of the English language than others, according to University of B.C.’s Human Settlements (Community and Regional Planning) professor Aprodicio Laquian. Laquian, a Philipino with Chinese ancestry who lived in mainland China for six years, described how migration from Asia tends to come in waves. “The oldest of these was in the 19th century from the mainland (China),” he said. “More recently, Hong Kong experienced a rapid migration that led to many moving back to Hong Kong and there was also a big influx from Korea, before the latest one from mainland China.” The difference with the latest wave, said Laquian, is that the immigrants are much less exposed to English than people from Hong Kong and Taiwan. “This seems to be reflected in the many signs you see in Richmond,” said Laquian, who emphasized his views are “impressionistic” in the absence of any detailed research into the subject. People from mainland China take longer to adjust, according to Laquian, because, culturally, they are “very different in many ways. “I have done a lot of studying on strata councils and housing management and they take a lot more time to come to terms with the rules and regulations in Canada. “They’re very much used to a different government culture and they tend to stick

together more and form smaller circles because of the language barrier. “They tend to look after themselves and distance themselves from government.” Richmond city councillor Chak Au, a strong advocate of racial harmony who immigrated from Hong Kong in 1988, was a professor at Hong Kong’s Chinese University. Au explained how it’s easier for certain Chinese ethnicities to slide into Canadian culture than others. “The people from Hong Kong carry a very British heritage and in the early days of

them moving here, the language thing wasn’t even an issue, because they were very sensitive to English and could communicate quite freely in English,” said Au. “The Taiwanese have strong ties with the U.S., so, again, English is not too foreign. “And the South East Asian Chinese can often speak six or seven languages and are used to different dialogues and cultures.” Like Laquian, the issue, said Au, lies with the recent influx from mainland China; the demographic which has seen the biggest immigration flow over the last 10 years. “The mainland has had a closed door policy until the late ’80s and early ’90s,” said Au. “People were seldom in contact with the outside world, but they’re the largest immigrant group to have arrived in Richmond in the last six or seven years, and I think this influx is a big reason why this issue has been magnified recently. “They are generally more nervous about outside contact, and they will need lots of encouragement to overcome that. Au has also discovered more than 200 social groups from mainland China here in the city, but very few of them have any interaction with the non-Chinese community. “I’m going to talk to a group of Muslim women that I know and I’m going to try to get them to meet with one of those groups, a group of mainland Chinese women,” he said. “Both groups are open to it and, again, it’s about building little bridges. “It could be a tiny step in the right direction, who knows where it might lead?”

Wat: Voter turnout down, volunteers up Continued from page 3 “After the diagnosis, we had a lot of time to talk together,” Wat said. “And my husband kept saying that once he was in heaven, I had to serve the community. He told me to, ‘Please change your style. Don’t just work for your employer. You have to do more than that.’ And while volunteering in the community is not the tradition in Asia, we were now Canadians, and it was time to help others.” Thanks to his strong will, the one-year prognosis stretched to seven. “Through it all, I never showed my emotion. I kept on doing my work,” Wat said, adding losing him was a transition point in her life. Shortly afterwards, the BC NDP came calling to see if she’d represent them in the 2013 election. Her track record in the Glen Clark government as a communications manager in the multiculturalism ministry and role as a communications advisor in the premier’s office made her a known quantity to them. “Eventually, I said no, because I didn’t share their ideology,” Wat said. Plus, she wasn’t completely sold on the idea of entering the hurly burly of political life. It took a word of encouragement from her now adult daughter, Tin, to tip the balance when the B.C. Liberal Party sought her out late last year. “My daughter said, ‘Mum, I think you should go into politics. I know what dad told you. This is right for you,’” Wat said. “So, I thought about it for a couple of weeks and realized this type of opportunity doesn’t come around very often.” She was in the race. Then started a campaign to try and fit into a riding that was firmly liberal territory, but somewhat cynical to the fact she was an outsider from Burnaby — a non resident, parachuted in to play to the large Chinese-Canadian constituency. The strategy was to mount a grassroots, old school effort complete with plenty of door-knocking to meet voters face to face. It dropped 12 pounds from her already slender frame. But it was worthwhile as Wat said she found an audience willing to listen, although the riding was labelled with the dubious distinction of having the lowest turn out of registered voters in B.C. on election night. Preliminary figures showed 38.9 per cent cast ballots compared to a province-wide 52.3 per cent. Wat said she believes a large percentage of new immigrants in the riding who are ineligible to vote is the reason for the low turnout. Registration to vote in B.C. requires Canadian citizenship, being at least 18-yearsold, and a resident in B.C. for the past six months.

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Teresa Wat (right) stands with her daughter, Tin, and late husband at Tin’s graduation. Wat said some Chinese immigrants who can qualify also rule themselves out of voting because they are reluctant to relinquish their Chinese citizenship for a Canadian one. “The Chinese government doesn’t recognize dual citizenship,” Wat said. “And if they (immigrants) have family and business connections still in China, it’s not easy to travel back using a Canadian passport. Each time you have to apply for a travel visa.” Still, there is hope things will improve in time for the next election cycle four years from now, and it comes from some encouraging volunteer numbers in Wat’s campaign, she had close to 150, an increase from former MLA Rob Howard’s 60. Oddly, many of them were from mainland China. “Even though they were not citizens, they wanted to get involved because they saw a Chinese-Canadian (candidate) and also wanted to get to know about Canadian politics,” Wat said. “And some were international students who intend to stay here after finishing their studies. ” Initiating that type of engagement is the biggest lesson Wat said she learned from the campaign. It’s also a part of who she is. “I love to talk to people. As a journalist I am a naturally inquisitive person,” she said. “And if we have discussions, there is the opportunity to have a better understanding of each other so all the misunderstandings can be put aside.” It’s a long way from the career-driven, family-first direction Wat was used to taking. Her schedule is now built around embracing her constituents at every opportunity to define local issues and map out a plan of action. “Not everybody wants to become a politician — it’s a tough job,” she said. “But when I think about what I’m contributing to the community, I’m sure my husband would be proud of me.”

Play smart hockey

roponents of rock-em, sock-em hockey took a blow to the old kisser this week when Hockey Canada’s board of directors voted to entirely eliminate body checking from the peewee, or under-13, level. Predictably, the CBC’s resident dinosaur, Don Cherry, warned us we would rue the day, voicing the increasingly hard-to-defend position that it’s better to teach kids to hit and receive hits at a younger age. Canada’s coaching of hockey at the bantam through junior levels could certainly be improved — we have not won gold at the world juniors since 2009. But there is nothing to suggest that our hockey program will be hurt by such a move. As it stood, the only ones being hurt were our kids — and we’ve known about it for at least 10 years. A 2003 study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal reported that body checking was associated with 86 per cent of injuries sustained by players nine to 15 years old. A 2006 study showed that players were 42 per cent more likely to suffer a concussion and 25 per cent more likely to suffer fractures in Ontario leagues where body checking is allowed when compared to Quebec where it was not. Sadly, we are only just beginning to realize that the effects of a blow or blows to the head can have serious repercussions later in life. Parents pay attention to this kind of medical research and it’s no coincidence that hockey registration has stagnated across Canada for the last two years. Let’s relegate old-time hockey to where it belongs: the past.

Oval profits, still burden

The Editor, It seems the Richmond Oval has some money to spend with a colourful advertisement which came out this past week — one was included with the News in Wednesday’s delivery. The recent one had an interesting “bookkeeping” fact that stated a large surplus was realized, yet across on another page, a similar amount was granted by the city. They presumably broke even with this financial help from the city — the taxpayers! The 2012 Report to the Community puts the oval’s financial results differently. It reports oval profits as $3,066,824 in 2012, and conversely that the city contributed $8.36 per square feet to the oval budget. Whatever that means or equates to, it still comes out to an expensive operation for Richmond taxpayers! Larry Hillman Richmond

There’s no respect for taxpayers The Editor, The quarterly metered utility bill has just been issued and perhaps, the City of Richmond would like to explain the justification for increasing the water meter maintenance charge a whopping 20 per cent. This administration continues to sock it to the homeowner, showing absolutely no respect for taxpayers. L.B. Black Richmond

Zombie shows begin eating networks Arrested Development is back on the air. Or, not the airwaves, really. The cult sitcom that ran for three seasons and was then cancelled (some nonsense about not enough people watching) came back to life this weekend via Netflix. The word uncancelled is relatively new, but it comes up a lot in conversation about TV shows, especially cult programs that died before their time. In the last few years, we’ve seen the resurrection of Futurama (major network to cable), Family Guy (ditto) and Beavis and Butthead (off the air for 14 years). We saw cancelled series Firefly get a big-screen adaptation, which also failed to clean up, but spread the cult following for both show and film. Cougar Town died on network TV but was picked up by TBS. It’s also not uncommon for a show to get canned by one network only to find life on another — the earliest of these was Get Smart back in the 1960s, but starting in the ’90s it became common for shows about forensic investigators or psychic detectives to jump networks. The trend in most of these revivals has been shows moving from the centre to the periphery. A middling show on one network is picked up by a smaller network, a cable channel, or a satellite channel. The core audience for the show will usually follow favourite characters up the dial.

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

Now the shows are escaping television altogether. Arrested Development is being re-built by Netflix, which streams TV directly to your home for a monthly fee. The move to uncancel shows is one of the signs of the slow death of quality on network television. It’s not that you can’t find excellent shows on the major networks. There’s, well, Parks and Recreation is good, and, um. The networks have found what works for them are shows that appeal to a broad swath of people, offend almost no one, and which can be watched without any investment in an ongoing story. I don’t mind an episode of Castle, for example, but don’t try to ask me what the plot was a week later. A lot of network television is well acted, slickly shot, decently written, and ultimately boring. Television that is interesting and cutting edge, pretty much by definition is going to bring in a smaller audience than something that is comfortingly familiar. Cult shows used to see write-in campaigns to save them from cancellation.

Now fans don’t have to write to executives. They can vote with their wallets. Netflix isn’t bringing back Arrested Development because they like the show, they want to attract more subscribers. And if there isn’t a money-minded benefactor, fans can take the reins themselves. The teen detective noir show Veronica Mars was cancelled after three seasons. It’s now getting a film version, thanks to $5.7 million raised from fans through Kickstarter. This kind of thing trickles down. I didn’t give money to the Veronica Mars movie project, but I have given money to a guy named Kyle Kallgren. I like the videos he’s made online, and he’s making a short film about time travel and politics, called Election Cycle. He raised a humble $16,000 for his project. Never heard of Kallgren? Doesn’t matter, I have, and I want to see more of his stuff. If there’s a creator out there that you like, there’s now ways to support them directly. This kind of thing isn’t going to kill off NCIS or Big Bang Theory, but it is chipping away slowly at the foundations of TV. If writers and directors take their ideas to the masses, how long will it be before they don’t need the networks at all? Matthew Claxton is a reporter for the Langley Advance.

CONSERVATION

Paving paradise for Speedway The Editor, Many readers may not be aware that we are currently facing a major threat to our Metro Vancouver Regional Parks. No, the threat is not the lowly, yet deadly pine beetle or a rogue South American bee, but sadly, it is the Environment and Parks Committee. This committee is comprised of elected representatives of our regions’ municipalities. Traditionally, one of the roles of this committee is to make decisions on behalf of all Metro Vancouver residents to ensure the healthy future of our regional parks, such as, Iona Beach, Deas Island, Pacific Spirit, Campbell Valley and many more. Through their stewardship, our regional parks, along with the wildlife and ecosystems within, are protected from encroaching development and, until now, really stupid ideas. It is therefore troubling that some of the current committee members may not share the vision for our parks that was shown by previous mayors and councils who understood that wildlife habitat and green space are as important to a healthy region as clean air and water. The importance of these cornerstones is clearly not as important to some representatives sitting on this committee today. If one could imagine the most intrusive and destructive activity to put in the centre of a regional park, “high performance auto sports” (i.e., car racing) would top the list.

Therefore, the fact that this Environment and Parks Committee is still considering a proposal by the Langley Speedway to do just that — smack in the middle of Campbell Valley Park, whose official purpose is “to provide outstanding examples of the region’s plant and animal life for public enjoyment and study” — should make one blink. The story here is that reintroducing auto racing in this location after a 29-year absence would cause problems for the core park users, horse riders. The real question is — why is the Environment and Parks Committee promoting auto racing? It is important to note that support for this proposal is not unanimous on this committee. Our Richmond councillor Harold Steves is opposed, and we must believe that common sense will triumph. However, the fact any representative sitting as a member on this committee could not see the flaw in this idea is a sad day indeed for our parks. Car racing is not the problem here. The Langley Speedway Historical Society is an enthusiastic group that promotes auto sports — more power to them. But the Environment and Parks Committee for Metro Vancouver should be in the driver’s seat on this one, not the other way around. Kathy Kolb Richmond

Boys’ game brings out parents’ worst MARK BOOTH RICHMOND NEWS

Girls soccer tends to produce less inflammatory incidents than the boys’ version.

BY A LAN C AMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Boys and girls may be the same species, but their parents are completely different animals when it comes to watching their offspring perform on the field of play, according to Stew MacPherson, Richmond Girls Soccer executive director. The male game is generally accepted as being more physical and slightly faster than its female counterpart. As such, the behaviour emanating from the parents on the sideline tends to mirror that on the field and can be more “intense” in nature, argued MacPherson. “I think it’s totally different, it’s a totally different animal. With no disrespect to girls soccer, especially at a high level, the boys are going in much harder and faster, with sliding tackles and things like that. “You don’t see a lot of that on the girls’ side,” he added. “And with the boys game being more physical, it tends to raise the level of involvement from the side also.” The boys, in MacPherson’s experience, are up at disciplinary meetings all the time due to red cards. “I think at Richmond Girls, we’ve had three red cards in seven years. That tells you a lot about the physical side.” In addition, many parents are living the game vicariously through their children and many of the issues arise via the father through his son. So, by default, “there’s perhaps less of that in the girls game,” said MacPherson.

Children’s bases over-loaded with parental pressure Baseball coach says some parents can cause kids to ditch the game when they’re older BY ALAN CAMPBELL

I

acampbell@richmond-news.com

t’s a sunny day and the stands are full of eager parents, eyes peeled and trained on the 11-year-old who’s just stepped up to the plate. Under pressure to please, the player, a child, throws a nervous swing and a miss. His first worried glance is not towards his coach or his teammates, who he feels he may have let down. It’s in the direction of the stands. It’s a tense scenario that Alex Klenman — accomplished head coach for the U15 Richmond Bantam AAA Chuckers, packing more than 23 years experience — has seen too many times for his liking. “You get some (parents) who’re very vocal, who make their presence known,” said Klenman, who grew up playing the game in L.A. “Then there’s some whose mere presence can have a negative effect. The young players know they’re there, because the kid might miss and you see them looking at the stands. “If they do catch their parent’s eye, they get the stare or the glare. Kids are under enough pressure playing the game without having over-reactive parents on them.” Although acknowledging parents can have a very positive effect and that he has a “terrific” parent group, Klenman has

seen too many kids walk away from the game at a very early age because they’re overloaded by parental pressure. “I’ve seen kids in tears because of the parents, and it’s not acceptable really,” he said. “They all mean well, and they all want the best for their children.

Alex Klenman, Richmond Chuckers head coach, says sport is the kids’ place to express and enjoy themselves.

not easy.” Kids are not the only ones being worried away from the sport, however. Coaches, too, often steer clear of taking on a team because of the spectre of dealing with problem parents. “A lot of good coaches don’t coach because they don’t have the people skills to deal with difficult parents,” said Klenman. “Coaching is actually the easy part. And there’s nothing worse than getting home two hours later than everyone because you had to meet parents after a game or practice. “There’s no training for these situations and I think parents have to think about that. They can easily make your experience memorable or forgettable for very different reasons.” The best advice for the coach in managing the parents, said Klenman, is to set out your and your organization’s expectations very early on. “I start all seasons with parent meetings, partly because some parents believe they can do a better job. “But I tell them, when the kids are here, they’re ours; this is the kids’ environment.” And no matter how bad things seem to be, parents have to support their kids in a positive manner, said Klenman. “No one is harder on the kid than themselves, so why would the parent need to add to it as well?”

Focus on effort, not the outcome: Sports psychologist BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

As a former provincial and recreational sports coach and a soccer parent, Dr. Peter Crocker knows a thing or two about the influence adults can have on young athletes. And being a professor of kinesiology and associate member of psychology at the University of B.C. — where his primary area of research investigates stress, coping, and emotion in adolescent and high-performance athlete — Crocker is acutely aware of the athlete’s spike in anxiety levels when parents pile on the pressure before, during and after an event. A great deal of Crocker’s research over the last 25 to 30 years has studied how young athletes cope with stress and what the main sources of that stress are. Parental involvement, he attests, is right up there among the top contributors. “Parents can create demands,

which is not necessarily bad,” said Crocker. “But sometimes it can be destructive if it’s always negative and particularly unrealistic. A young athlete will eventually internalize these standards, turn them into their own experiences and try to achieve them. “The problem is, sport almost always puts up obstacles when it comes to meeting and surpassing the athlete’s own and other people’s expectations of him or her.” Such obstacles, according to Crocker, could be injuries or just really good opponents. But when parents start to focus

too much on the outcome, in terms of measuring success, “it can be destructive,” Crocker explained. “If the outcome of the game or event is the gauge, then you’ll have a whole lot of children failing in their heads, because, in most sports, there’s a winner and a loser. “And when parents also turn their focus to officials and coaching from the side, it becomes a major stressor for the young athlete.” The fallout from the parental stress factor can have far-reaching and damaging effects in terms of a child’s long-term development as an athlete and a person. “Their performance and enjoyment of the sport is at stake,” said Crocker. “Children learn so much from sport and a negative influence has the potential to seriously restrict that learning experience.” Stress is an inherent part of sport and of life, said Crocker. “If you’re striving to get better in life and in sport, you’re going to

RICHMOND COUNTRY CLUB HAS A ZERO TOLERANCE BULLYING POLICY

Kids golf for charity Young organ recipients joined adult golfers to fundraise for cause BY JOHN CORREA Special to the News

Madeline Sam and Markus Mani may just be a couple of regular kids having a fun day swinging clubs at the Quilchena Golf and Country Club. But their early years were anything but typical. Both children are organ transplant recipients. Markus was born two months premature with an underdeveloped kidney. He spent the first few years of his life in and out of hospitals, being poked, prodded and examined. At age three, his parents put him on the waiting list for a kidney transplant and, incredibly, 12 hours later he got one. Madeline, a shy, bright-eyed girl, received a liver transplant when she was just 11 months old. Those medical struggles are behind them now, but what continues is their willingness to be advocates for organ transplants. Madeline, 7, and Markus, 9, were the ambassadors of the Second Annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament hosted by the Children’s Organ Transplant Society (C.O.T.S.) held last week. “The Second Annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament is C.O.T.S. biggest fundraiser and the money will go towards the family events, sending kids to camps, and to awareness and advocacy,” said spokesperson Alexi Murray. “Every participant of the event had the opportunity to play golf on an 18-hole course, to have dinner and to participate in a live and silent auction.” It was “a lot of fun,” said Markus, who’s described by his parents as a happy, healthy boy, who loves to be out playing with other kids. Madeline, 7, said she wants to become a doctor when she grows up because she knows how important it is to stay healthy. Madeline’s parents said they have remained in contact with BC Children’s Hospital and C.O.T.S. for support since Madeline’s transplant. C.O.T.S. was founded in 2001 as a non-profit and registered charity, committed to improving the lives of children requiring organ transplants. It’s also committed to helping the children’s families through the process. It is run by volunteers and relies on personal and corporate donations and fundraising events. All funds raised go towards supporting families across British Columbia.

NEW EXHIBIT NOW OPEN

The zany story of where pants come from Sabine Eiche

News Online @

I N OT H E R WO R D S

Did you know there’s a thread tying your pants to an old Italian theatre tradition,

a thread your pants share with the Barber of Seville, Marriage of Figaro, slapstick comedy, Punch and Judy, and Shakespeare? This thread begins in Italy in the 1500s with the commedia dell’arte, a popular form of street theatre. It was all improvised buffoonery with professional actors.

Plots and characters soon became stock. The masks and costumes readily identified the characters, acting out plots fuelled by love, jealousy and intrigue, in which foolish old men, scoundrelly servants, deceitful wives, and maids of easy virtue tossed sallies to and fro. The best-known charac-

ters are Pantalone, Pulcinella, and the Zanni figures Arlecchino and Brighella. Zanni (Venetian for Gianni) is a collective name given to the servants in the commedia dell’arte. They were ludicrous characters, behaving like clowns, mimicking the manners of their masters. Soon the English picked up the word Zanni, changing it to zany, to refer to the same kind of buffoonish character. Shakespeare used it in that sense in Love’s Labour’s Lost (Biron in Act V, Scene II) and in Twelfth Night (Malvolio in Act I, Scene V). We now use zany more often as an adjective than a noun, to describe the unconventional, unexpected or idiosyncratic. In The Barber of Seville and the Marriage of Figaro (set to music by Rossini and Mozart respectively), Beaumarchais based the character of Figaro on the Zanni called Brighella. While Brighella’s name hasn’t been translated into English, that of another Zanni has – Arlecchino, whom we call Harlequin. He’s the physically nimble but dullwitted servant dressed in a multi-coloured, patchwork costume, who famously uses two wooden slats to make a smacking noise when hitting someone, a comic routine

%

that’s the origin of our word slapstick. Pulcinella was a mean and crafty Neapolitan hunchback, pretending to be stupid and speaking with a peculiar voice. The English turned Pulcinella into Mr. Punch, husband of Judy, in the Punch and Judy puppet shows still delighting audiences after 350 years. The character of Pantalone was a decrepit, miserly Venetian merchant dressed in a type of tightfitting trousers. We derive the word pantaloons from his name. By 1841, pantaloons were abbreviated to pants – which means trousers in American English, but underpants in British English. Pantalone was originally a generic nickname for a Venetian – like Canuck for a Canadian – because of their devotion to the martyr Saint Pantaleone. Eventually the French took the nickname Pantalone and applied it to the type of hose traditionally worn by Venetians (“pantalone” became the Italian word for pants/trousers). And there you have an extra bit of zaniness about the history of your pants that most English dictionaries don’t mention. Sabine Eiche is a writer and art historian (http:// members.shaw.ca/seiche/)

A16 May 31, 2013 The Richmond News

Latest news on the Canada Pension Plan Barely a week passes without news on the Canada Pension Plan. There's a lot going on right now, in fact, so let’s take a look. Value of the Plan To see how the CPP has performed, it’s worth looking at how the total plan value has increased since 2009: CPP fund at March 31, 2009 $106.5 billion March 31, 2010 $127.6 billion March 31, 2011 $148.2 billion March 31, 2012 $161.5 billion March 31, 2013 $183.3 billion Net investment income in the past year was $16.2 billion, roughly a 10% return. Clearly, the CPP investment board has performed quite well. The fund has never been valued higher, and for those who worry that there won’t be a CPP when they reach pension age, relax! Note that, for anyone who applied for their CPP at age 60, they now receive about 36% less than they would have had they waited for age 65, which they may regret in their 70’s and 80’s. Think carefully before applying at age 60! Payment amounts The maximum monthly benefit for 2013 is $1,012.50. The average is much less, at $534.65. If you wait after age 65 to apply for the CPP benefits, you will receive 0.7% more in benefits for each month you wait. If you wait until the maximum age of 70, your benefit will be 42% higher than it would have been at age 65. Meanwhile, if you work in B.C., are under age 65 and receive CPP benefits, you must make CPP contributions. However, these contributions can go toward the new Post Retirement Benefit (PRB). Above age 65, the contributions are not mandatory, but if you continue contributing toward the PRB, you will receive those benefits in the years after you contribute. In 2013, the maximum PRB is $25.13 per month. Pension sharing The CPP allows both married and common law couples to share their pension benefits to reduce income tax exposure. Depending on the income level of each spouse, sharing CPP benefits (which are taxable) may reduce overall family tax liability. Separation, divorce or death will end this tax benefit. To start pension sharing, you'll need to apply. Forms are available either online or at Service Canada offices across the Lower Mainland. You'll need to send copies of Social Insurance Numbers and birth certificates. All those meetings Canadian Finance Ministers will be meeting again in June to discuss the CPP. Many groups and individuals across the country want the CPP benefit increased. The government is cautious, not wanting to increase contribution rates and knowing that the wave of new applicants is already requiring increased benefit outlays. Given our demographics, the time will soon come when outflows will exceed inflows. The rate of return of the CPP is good, but it must continue to be good to ensure financial stability. One of the CPP's ongoing problems is the survivor benefit, where one member of a married or common law couple dies. The survivor not only loses their late spouse’s OAS, but also will typically only receive approximately 60% of their spouse’s CPP -- the rule is that the survivor can only receive the maximum CPP benefit that they'd receive in the year they started their CPP benefits, so if they were receiving the maximum CPP benefit of $1,012.50, in the year they started receiving their CPP, and then lost their spouse, their survivor benefit would be zero!). An article in The Toronto Star, earlier this week, cited the example of an Ontario Realtor whose wife died weeks after turning 60, having paid into the CPP all her life but never collected. The Realtor’s CPP survivor benefit was 98 cents (believe it or not) per month. I hope that the Ministers will discuss the existing problems with survivor benefit. In my view, they should revamp the calculation of this particular benefit. In addition, the maximum CPP death benefit has remained at $2,500 for too long. Summary From the “big picture” perspective, the CPP is a good, well run plan. The CPP Investment Board's investments have proven successful in recent years and have helped the plan's value grow considerably. If it continues, we will all be able to feel secure that the CPP will provide us a base income to help meet our expenses in retirement. At present, the CPP benefit increases annually based mostly on the CPI (the national measured rate of inflation). It is significant that the government takes a cautious view in connection with other, proposed increases. Given how many of us will start receiving CPP benefits over the coming 15 years, the long-term stability of the plan depends on this conservative approach. In my view, the most glaring weakness in the CPP lies in the calculation and actual amounts of survivor benefits. The calculation appears to lack any consideration of the loss in income that a survivor must bear after his or her spouse dies. Given the survivor’s loss of OAS benefits, a new approach to the survivor benefit calculation that takes into account this loss of income should be examined, considered and adopted.

How Porsche became a legend

604.278.3185

BY J ASON S TEIN

Special to the News

But this a story about the other “Mr. Porsche,” the one you have probably never heard of. The one who made it flourish. Not the one who gets all the accolades, but the one who created all the excitement. Although the company that carries his name was born some 17 years before he was actively involved, Ferry Porsche is the one who steered it into the fast lane. On April 25, 1931, the Porsche Company was formed as “designers and consultants for land, sea and air vehicles.” But it was Ferdinand Anton Ernst, nicknamed “Ferry”, the son of automotive genius Ferdinand Porsche, who made the Porsche car the sports car monolith it is today. With a few smooth lines and an even smoother collection of engines, Ferry Porsche generated excitement during a time when Germany desperately needed a jumpstart. Ferry gave the post-war Germans something to dream about. He gave them Porsche: the symbol of speed and superiority that continues to this day. Ferry’s place in history was only natural. When he was born in Wiener Neustadt, Austria, on Sept. 19, 1909, his father was

already technical director of the Austro-Daimler Company. Ferry breathed machinery. At age 12 he was allowed to drive racecars while closely working with his father to learn the automotive craft. Shortly after the family moved to Stuttgart in 1923, Ferry began working as a designer in his father’s own company. Their first contract, a 2.0-litre-engined car for the Wanderer Company, was designated number 007 to give the impression it was not Porsche’s first project. The success of the vehicle led the Auto Union Company to appoint Ferdinand Porsche as the lead designer on a new racecar. Ferry would do all of the testing on the 16-cylinder supercharged engine until one day his father declared: “I have enough drivers, but only one son.” Ferry stopped testing, but the Porsches were not done. Before the Second World War (1939-’45), they began work on another project that would prove equally as incredible: the Volkswagen Beetle. But the war took away Ferry’s father captured by the French army - and most of the business. Ferry left Stuttgart for Austria and, with the help of a few colleagues, started over in 1945 with repair jobs and farm machinery. After a few contracts in Italy, Ferry began working on his own sports car, known appropriately as the Porsche.

PHOTO SUBMITTED

The Porsche 356’s remarkable design and engine influenced a whole generation Ferry’s objective was simple. He wanted to build a lightweight, compact car that offered unmatched braking and handling. “If I build a car that gives me satisfaction, then there must be others with the same sort of dreams who would be prepared to buy such a car,” he once said. In post-war Germany, the country was in ruins and the economy was in shambles. The Germans needed a new identity. Ferry helped lead them in a new direction. After less than three years of development, Ferry finished his car - named the

Porsche 356 -, which debuted in 1948. With an air-cooled rear-mounted four-cylinder engine borrowed from the Volkswagen Beetle, it would be the ultimate launching pad. A total of 52 units were built before the company returned to Stuttgart. For many, it defined a change in German auto design and performance. Porsche sold 78,000 356 models by the time production ended in 1965. But what it would lead to would prove even more telling. see 911 page 20

Ferry Porsche, Porsche the man behind a motoring Legend. continued from page 18 When Porsche ended the 356, an even better vehicle was in the spotlight: the 911. With amazing performance and timeless styling - penned by Ferry’s son, Ferdinand Alexander - the 911 defined what it meant to be Porsche. The 911 Turbo, first launched in 1974, was one of the world’s first turbocharged sports cars and the brand image continued to flourish with victory after victory on the racetracks. Today, it’s a model that’s coveted by sports-car purists and feared by competitors. Mostly, Ferry Porsche demanded a great deal from his engineers, mechanics and drivers. He wanted excellence and he got it. The Porsche family gave up control of the company in 1972 when Ferry stepped down from the board of directors, but he remained on the company’s advisory board, serving as chairman until 1990. He was the board’s honorary chairman until his death, at age 88, in 1998 in Austria. Porsche roared on, a symbol of one man’s quest and a lifetime goal fulfilled.

Lambert returns to coach Sockeyes

Cup champions will have a familiar face behind the bench next season The search for the next head coach of the Richmond Sockeyes became an easy one with return of one of their best in franchise history. Following a one-year hiatus, Judd Lambert will be back behind the bench for the 2013-14 Pacific International Junior Hockey League season. The club made it official at its yearend banquet Sunday at the Richmond Country Club. Lambert enjoyed five outstanding seasons with the Sockeyes, highlighted by winning the Keystone Cup Western Canadian championship in 2009. He stepped down at the end of the 201112 campaign to spend more time with his young family. He still kept a close tab on the team through attending games and his father

— Maurice Lambert — who is part of the Sockeyes ownership group. As a player, Judd backstopped the Sockeyes to a B.C. title in the early 1990s and earned a scholarship to play at Colorado College where he met his wife Amy. He was selected in the ninth round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils and spent another five years playing at the professional level with stops in the East Coast Hockey League (Dayton, Augusta), the International Hockey League (Fort Wayne, Grand Rapids, Orlando) and the American Hockey League (Albany, Providence, Cincinnati). He has since put his law degree to use, specializing in real estate. He returns to take on what’s expected to be a
