Speed-talking Reid lands speaker role BY ALAN CAMPBELL

Veteran MLA elected Speaker of the Legislature, commands cross-party respect

to the role,” said Reid, who won her sixth straight election last month. “I’ve got lots of things I need to be briefed on, there’s certainly not going to be a shortage of work, that’s for sure.” As speaker, Reid has to be available for duty whenever the legislature sits and won’t be able to take leave at those times. And the irony of the fact that Reid — known for the speed in which words leave her mouth — is now the “speaker” is not lost on the veteran politician. “I’m still working hard on slowing things down a little,” laughed Reid. Reid replaces Bill Barisoff, who retired before the election in May.

The respect she commands across both sides of the political divide is one of the reasons Linda Reid has a new job — Speaker of the B.C. Legislature. Richmond East MLA Reid was voted into the hotseat, after 14 candidates were on the list, by her fellow MLAs Wednesday morning at about 9 a.m. When the News caught up with former deputy speaker Reid on Thursday, she was still taking in the honour that surrounds her new role. But she’s in no doubt about the responsibility the speaker has and is relishing the prospect. “Both sides said lovely things about me and I think they believe I’ll bring fairness

China needs our liquified natural gas: Richmond MLA Wat Critics question benefits to B.C. when exporting raw resources

BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Much of B.C.’s future economic prosperity will follow a path of increased international trade with the Asia-Pacific region, according to Teresa Wat, the rookie MLA for Richmond Centre. Wat, who was recently named Minister of International Trade and Minister Responsible for the Asia Pacific Strategy and Multiculturalism, said her collection of portfolios puts her in a prime position to help guide B.C. down that route, growing business connections with countries such as China, India and South Korea. While recognizing the already strong trade ties with the U.S. and European Union member countries, Wat, who before being elected in the May 14 provincial vote was president and CEO of a multicultural radio station and news director of Channel M Television, said it is time to enhance trade ties with the AsiaPacific region. At the leading edge of the coming trade efforts is the B.C. government’s push to export liquified natural gas (LNG), with China as the main customer. “China really needs that LNG for its 1.3 billion people,” Wat told the News follow-

Kitimat LNG plant which will require an estimated 3,500 construction workers, but create a mere 125 long-term positions. “It looks attractive because of the shortterm benefits because we need jobs now, but I am worried this government is being shortsighted,” she said. B.C. also does not have the tax and royalty structures in place to fully benefit from the export of LNG, Ivanova said, adding B.C. would do well to examine what other countries, such as Norway, have done to maximize benefits. “As it currently stands, natural gas production in B.C. is at an all-time high, but our royalty revenues are near an all-time low — only $144 million in the last fiscal year, compared to well over a billion dollars in the mid-2000s,” she said. “It seems clear the current royalty system is not maximizing the benefits our province gets from the use of our fossil fuels.” To address that, Ivanova suggested a full review of the entire B.C. royalty system, “not just for natural gas, but also for water, forests and minerals, to ensure that we get a fair return from our publicly owned resources.”

People from four different faiths are setting aside their assorted beliefs in a bid to help Richmond’s needy. BOSS (Beth Tikvah Synagogue, Our Saviour Lutheran Church, St. Anne’s Anglican Church and St. Joseph the Worker Parish) have gotten their heads together over the last few months to bring about a “Multi-Faith Food Drive” in aid of the Richmond Food Bank. It’s the first of many acts of kindness that BOSS hopes to pull off, after banding together earlier this year. The drive will be held on Sunday, July 7 from 1 to 4 p.m. outside the Safeway store at the Blundell Shopping Centre near No. 2 and Blundell roads. “We chose the food bank because, traditionally, its stocks tend to get very low at this time of year,” said Beth Tikvah’s Francie Steen. “It’s wonderful to come together for a common cause, I get a warm and fuzzy feeling when something like this happens.” St. Anne’s Roger Nathan, who’s also the volunteer

And it’s something that both Steen and Nathan hope won’t be the last effort and urged other groups to join them. “After this, we’ll probably be on the lookout for another local organization to help out,” said Steen.” “Who knows, maybe

other religions will want to join in with us? It should be an amazing experience and we’re all looking forward to it.” Mayor Malcolm Brodie is expected to drop by the food drive, as will Coun. Ken Johnston. Donations should be nonperishable food, or purchase some from Safeway ($5 and $10 food bags will be available). If you would prefer to make a cash donation, Richmond Food Bank staff will be on site. Alongside the collection of food items, there will be many attractions for people of all ages, including live music provided by members of the respective congregations and a visiting fire truck from Richmond FireRescue.

Rioter gets jailed Volunteers get federal elder abuse cash — for one day BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

A University of B.C. student convicted of looting two pairs of pants during the Stanley Cup riot was sentenced to one day in jail after being found guilty of breaching conditions. A Vancouver Provincial Court judge issued Burnett secondary grad Camille Camille Cacnio Cacnio, 24, a jail term after it was determined she’d stayed out past her court-ordered curfew when she was pulled over during a random roadside check Jan. 5. However, Cacnio was free to go after receiving credit for time served when she was initially arrested for the breach in January. Cacnio was given a suspended sentence last September for her role in the 2011 riot. As part of her conditions, she was ordered to abide by an overnight curfew for the first year of her sentence. But in January, a car Cacnio was driving was pulled over at a roadside check in Vancouver. There, Cacnio lied to an officer several times about whether she had been drinking that evening — she blew 0.009, well below the 0.08 legal limit — and said she was heading to Burnaby to pick up anxiety medication. Cacnio was then arrested and her car towed. Shortly after the riot, Cacnio was diagnosed with conditions of depression and anxiety, the court was told during her trial earlier this year. —The Province with a file from Richmond News

MP Alice Wong made her way to Richmond Wednesday morning to announce funding for Volunteer Richmond Information Services (VRIS). The organization received close to $25,000 to develop new information material to raise awareness of elder abuse, including power of attorney rights and responsibilities. “We don’t have specific numbers, but [elder abuse is] something we’ve been hearing among the seniors we serve,” said Jocelyn Wong of VRIS. “It usually comes up when seniors ask for support in other areas. Then other issues come out. They don’t know they’re being abused or taken advantage of.” Four to 10 per cent of seniors experience some form of abuse in Canada, but only one in five report it, according to Alice Wong. “We want to foster the social participation and inclusion of seniors across the country and make sure no one takes advantage of

them,” she said. “We tend to focus more on spectacular issues like the environment and wars, but we often forget other issues that fester beneath the surface.” Some of the most common forms of elder abuse come from the handling of finances and when power of attorney is granted. The VRIS plans to provide material and resources

for seniors to educate themselves about their rights when they give power of attorney, as the process can be difficult to understand. It will also encourage people to start the planning process early when they still have the ability to do so. Alice Wong also acknowledged the process is complicated for power of attorneys themselves. More and more

people find themselves sandwiched between caring for their parents and their own children, adding pressure. “The VRIS program will raise awareness for families about the challenges accompanied with being the power of attorney as well, so people know where to go for help and support,” said Wong. !

WHAT IS FLOODPLAIN MAPPING AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR HOMEOWNERS? Floodplain maps are a tool that shows cities and municipalities areas that are subject to high flood hazard, and they help administrators make decisions about how and where communities grow. There are currently 87 existing floodplain maps available on line from the Provincial Government. Experts recommend that these maps be updated every 10 years. Before you purchase a home, check these floodplain maps to see if you are buying in one of these areas. The British Columbia Real Estate Association has been very proactive in getting stakeholders together to update these existing maps and getting agreed upon key actions to get this done.

Set example for teens

W

ith school behind us and summer parties stretching ahead, it’s a good time to give parents a nudge about not providing their kids with access to alcohol. Every year, area hospitals treat hundreds of teens for alcohol poisoning and accidents related to the effects of alcohol. The vast majority of those stats relate to alcohol poisoning. Young brains are not fully formed until approximately the age of 20 or 21. Recent research suggests that young binge drinkers — and binge drinking is the typical pattern — can permanently damage that part of the brain that moderates behaviour in social situations. In other words: lose control at a young age and you dramatically increase the odds of always being at risk of losing control. Knowing this, of course, our health authority and the police wish to limit societal damage. Dealing with it after the fact is expensive both in human and financial terms. Nevertheless, we have to wonder why the authority claims 80 per cent of Vancouver area teenagers get alcohol from adults. This sensationalism lacks context. “Adults” are not always parents. Surely older brothers, sisters and friends are the more likely source of bootlegged liquor. We have trouble believing that the vast majority of parents are buying fruity vodka drinks for their underaged kids every Friday night. And has anyone heard of fake ID? It’s an industry in high school. Frankly, booze is readily available to any teen who wants it. Modelling how to handle it is as important as who you hand it to.

CHOICE WORDS

Celebrating the nation

The Editor, Canada will be celebrating its 146th birthday on July 1. During these 146 years, this nation of more than 35 million people has undergone some massive changes. Today, people representing 200 communities around the globe speaking more than 200 different languages call Canada home. During the past 60 or so years, Canada has become a truly multicultural and multilingual country. It is a matter of great pride for Canadians that together we have managed to build a very prosperous, tolerant, peaceful, free and democratic society. Today, Canada has become an envy of the world thanks to the hard work, dedication and determination of Canadians. At present, there is hardly a country, culture or language in the world that is not represented here, living (for the most part) peacefully with other communities. On special days like this, we get to reflect on Canadian culture and values. What does it mean to be a Canadian? To most of us, it means living in a peaceful, open, inclusive and welcoming country. Canada’s policy of inclusion, openness and respect for cultural diversity makes it a shining model for others. In addition, Canada’s rich history and amazing beauty make it one of the most pleasant places to live. Our strong sense of values as well as economic and political stability has made Canada a land of great opportunity. Certainly, Canada has its problems. But they are minor in the greater scheme of things. There are countless examples of the high level of achievement by both Canadian-born citizens and immigrants. We need to celebrate all of this and much more that this great country has to offer. Happy Birthday Canada! Balwant Sanghera Richmond

Officially label all bad drivers as idiots I don’t know if this thought came to me while I was watching the guy in the rust-red pickup fishtail through a left hand turn on a stale yellow light, or when the driver of the silver luxury sedan almost ran me over in the crosswalk, or when someone in a hatchback almost ripped off my front fender while I was motionless at a red light. This is my big idea for the day: bad drivers are idiots. I know, not exactly revolutionary. But it could be! When in traffic court, the police, Crown lawyers, judge, and witnesses all have to use polite language. The defendant. The driver. Mr. So-and-So. Ms. Whatshername. What if we changed the wording on a driver’s licence once a person accumulated a certain number of points for traffic violations? Bad drivers already pay more for their insurance if they rack up points for speeding, driving recklessly, blowing through stop signs, and so forth. So, if they hit 10 points, they’re compelled to also get a new driver’s licence. On it will be their new title: Licensed Driver (Idiot). Imagine the delightful change in traffic court when police are testifying. Crown: “Please describe for the court exactly what the idiot did.” Mountie: “Well your honour, the idiot sped through a stop sign and almost ran over a cyclist

who had the right of way. Then, while we were just getting the lights and sirens going, the idiot went through a school zone at 70. “We followed him for half a kilometre before he noticed our lights and finally pulled over, because the idiot was playing a book on tape of The Secret at full volume.” Crown: “And is that idiot in this courtroom today?” Mountie: “Yes, it’s that idiot right over there.” Aside from the entertainment value for reporters, the public and officers of the court, this could have at least as much of a chilling effect as more tickets. No one likes to be told they’re an idiot. But some people clearly are idiots, not because of their IQ or their education, but because of their behaviour. You can be a MENSA member with a six-figure salary and be an idiot on the road each and every day, while there are plenty of folks out there who never finished high school who drive with care for others. Being an idiot behind the wheel has very little to do with actual intelligence. It has to do with self-centredness, a lack of empathy and a failure to imagine

the consequences of one’s actions. I suggest the following scale for drivers in B.C. If successful, we could maybe export it to other provinces and countries. ! Twit: Five points on the license. If you drive without incident for a year, your status as a Twit will be expunged. ! Idiot: 10 points or more on a license. At this point, you’re already paying some pretty hefty ICBC premiums, but that obviously fails to drive home the lesson for some people. Will be expunged by three years of safe driving. ! Freakin’ Idiot: 15 or more points on a license. Congratulations, you’ve graduated from being a garden-variety idiot. Will be reduced to Idiot by a year of safe driving. ! Moronic menace: 20 or more license points. Cannot be revoked, but after five years of safe driving, a notation will be added to your license saying you are a retired menace. ! Future killer: 30 or more points. You are so clearly a danger to yourself and others every time you sit behind the wheel of a car that it’s only a matter of time before you kill or maim someone. ! Murderous Fool: If you ever get your license back after killing someone with your car, this is your designation for life. Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

Child care, a community effort The Editor, As a first-time parent in 2003, I worried about returning to work in the midst of a childcare shortage, particularly for infants and toddlers. Ten years later, and after enrolling three children at Bowling Green Children’s Centre, our time has come to say goodbye. My husband and I learned so much from the talented early childhood educators at Bowling Green. They taught us strategies to deal with challenging behaviour and opened our eyes to the amazing things our children were capable of. They helped prepare us and our children for kindergarten. And, at the end of every day, they made us feel as if our children were special. The Society of Richmond Children’s Centres is a non-profit organization currently running Bowling Green, Cook Road and Terra Nova Children’s Centres. Under the guidance of their dedicated executive director, Nicky Byres, and board of directors, the society provides an outstanding service for

our community. Luckily for Richmond families and businesses, the society is growing and will soon open the West Cambie Children’s Centre. Sadly, 10 years after having my first child, the overall shortage of quality childcare, particularly for infants and toddlers, still exists. As parents, we don’t work to buy fancy cars, Jimmy Choo shoes or go on elaborate vacations. We work to pay our mortgages, afford orthodontics and give our children music lessons. We may work, but we also devote ourselves to our children. Childcare is not about delegating the raising of our children to someone else. It is about a community of care — one that allows families to be financially stable, keeps skilled and educated workers in the workforce and nurtures our future leaders. To Byres and the Bowling Green teachers — our heartfelt thanks for all you do. The Pan family will miss you immensely. Teresa Pan Richmond

Friday Feature

As Canada Day nears, we think of nationalism and ask what it means to feel connected to place. We believe it’s the small connections we make every day with our neighbours, sports teams and fellow gardeners that link us and root us to the land in which we live. It’s that brand of patriotism we celebrate here.

Connecting through sports BY A LAN C AMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Very few things connect people to one another and to their surrounding community better than sport. Whether it’s soccer, hockey, athletics, baseball or basketball, there’s no shortage of opportunities among the 50 different sporting organizations in Richmond to meet new friends on the field or fellow parents on the sidelines. Wearing a badge that says “Richmond Soccer,” “Richmond Blues” or “Richmond Chuckers,” also rapidly breeds a sense of belonging to the city you’re living in. The concept of community sport bringing people together and lending them a sense of worth is not lost on the city’s sports council chair, Jim Lamond. This is especially so, given that many people would struggle to pick their next-door neighbours out of a crowd. “You can go down to the soccer park on any weekend and you will see hundreds of parents,” said Lamond, who’s been involved in Richmond’s sporting community for more than 40 years. “They’re watching their children play, of course. But they’re also talking to other adults, meeting people, some they know, some they’ve never met. see Friendships page 11

The community gardens at the foot of Railway Avenue are a perfect place to get out there and meet people in your community, such as Zoe Lee, above, with son, Gabe, daughter, Elizabeth (left) and family friend Kinsey Nistor. BY Y VONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

Finding a sense of belonging in a bustling, burgeoning city can be an overwhelming task. But as the city unites on Monday to join the nationwide festivities celebrating Canada’s birth, on a smaller, day-to-day level, Richmondites are finding various ways to bond through their community centres and community gardens. “We refer to it as a family here,” said Richard Scott, on the board of West Richmond Community Centre. “It’s really important for these people. There’s a group of people who are unaware of the community centre and we’re trying to reach out and connect with them as well.” Scott has been at the centre for the past 10 years. He joined the board as a way to give back and connect with more people in the city he’s lived in since 1977. He’s seen people use the centre to get their children involved in the various programs offered. However, as children get older, parents want to keep frequenting the centre and begin to use the facilities for themselves. “It’s not something people do for a year or two, it’s something they do for many, many years,” said Scott. Even though the building acts as a tangible and convenient meeting spot, Scott suspects bonds

formed there transcend the four walls. “These people have made a real, personal connection with others,” said Scott. “I think if an instructor of a class left, or if certain friends left, some people might reconsider the place.” For the most part, community centres are walls built up to foster that very sense of community. Gardens, although built without walls, primarily serve different purposes such as food security awareness. Patrons attend to their own separate lots.

“They don’t have these walls that seperate actual neighbours.” — Colin Dring

Still, friendships form as people share the same interests in the land and urban agriculture. “They don’t have these walls that separate actual neighbours,” said Colin Dring, executive director of the Richmond Food Security Society. “So it’s quite open and people really become friends. Those moments of social connection are important to people.” What starts out as a knowledge exchange between neighbouring plots turns into plant and water sharing, and potlucks at the gardens.

Sometimes people call up friends to go and hang out, but encounters are mostly serendipitous, according to Dring. And the demand for the gardens has been huge. “We have about 300 in Richmond and there’s a waitlist of over 100,” he said. “People are looking for ways to access the land and be more connected to it and each other.” Using land as a common ground is something Thompson Community Centre cultivates through its park space. “With higher density comes less backyard space,” said Angela Lim, Thompson Community Centre Association president. “So people don’t really have that opportunity to sit out in their backyards and see their neighbours that way. So we try to bring people to the park.” So far it’s working as Lim has seen Richmondites of all shapes and sizes using the park as a communal gathering place. The centre has been proactive in creating connections and has a questionnaire at the front desk for patrons to answer questions like “What makes you feel connected to the Thompson Community?” “We want to be able to improve our facilities as well and connect to those who might feel more isolated,” said Lim who has frequented the centre for the past 23 years. “We’ve always taken a more proactive approach to really get people out here and connected.”

Friday Feature MUSIC

Strumming up passions, tunes help unite BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Plenty of things can create a sense of community, but not all have the unifying passion which music can instill. A pair of Richmond musicians — Brad Kilburn and Cherelle Jardine — have seen the effect the gift of song and sound can have on the masses as their performances and events have drawn crowds seeking more than just the music, but a sense of kinship as well. Kilburn, a former bassist with Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts, got his start in music during the 1970s at age 12 when he formed a popular local band called Thor with James Whiteside elementary school pals Jimmy Coletsis (guitar) and Martin Tanaka (drums). The group reunited in January for a single show, and the experience of playing a packed hall after so many years struck some interesting notes. “It was really about the people,” Kilburn said. “The band was just kinda like something that helps get people back together. And our show was really like a big, high school reunion, more or less. There was a span of people who had graduated between about 1973 or 1974 to 1984 and 1985. All these people hadn’t seen each other for a long period of time, but got back together because of this shared experience they had of seeing us play in the past.” It was similar to the effect social media can have on a community, Kilburn added, referring to the Facebook group “You grew

Maybe part of it, too, is that it’s a pub where everyone from the neighbourhood shows up. And it’s not just a young man’s game anymore. It’s all ages gathering at a place to socialize.” For singer/songwriter Jardine, who organized Richmond’s successful Musical Expressions Series that ran for seven years and concluded in 2011, the draw of music brought out a loyal, music-loving community. “It was something that people really loved, and it did bring the community together,” Jardine said. While at the outset getting word out about the series was difficult, a following soon grew. “Absolutely. There’s a huge music-loving community in Richmond that you don’t really see,” Jardine said. “Every month, people really enjoyed it, and there’d be a group who hung out afterwards to talk. “People still talk about it when they see me on the street. They say ‘Why did you stop?’ I still get requests, emails and phone calls all the time.” Civic funding cuts were the reason for the series ending, but the excitement it created was long-lasting and not a surprise to Jardine. To get a similar series back up and playing would require some significant sponsorship, she added. “But you never know. I might think about it. My own career is pretty busy. There’s always hope.”

Friendships: Forged for a lifetime Continued from page 10 “People will forge friendships and connections that will build up and usually last a lifetime.” “I don’t think they would make half the connections they would make if it wasn’t for community sport.” And when you’re wearing the badge of your community to compete against other cities, the emotional investment and belonging to something is multiplied.

“We’ve produced some wonderful athletes over the years,” said Lamond. “And I think people here are very proud of that and, when they play, there’s a real sense of being part of something special in this city. “It certainly helps to draw you into the community you live in when you’re part of a team in Richmond.” Those connections and relation-

ships also help foster the volunteering spirit that has people happily giving up much of their free time for their chosen sport. “I see people giving so much back to their community sport, because they’ve received so much pleasure as a child,” added Lamond. “And I think if they feel they’ve invested that time, then it only makes the connection to the community even stronger.”

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D.

Loose muscles

I sleep through the night and feel #23 rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night!

Come to Canwest Farms for Quality

magine if the entire length of highway between Vancouver, B.C. and Thunder Bay, O.N. was littered with debris – such as cigarette butts, plastic bags, and food containers. That stretch of highway is the approximate length of shoreline (a little over 3,000 km) that was cleaned during the 2012 Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, a joint collaboration between the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF, and the largest directaction public conservation effort in the country. It’s a lot of litter (over 136,000 kg worth!), but it doesn’t even come close to encompassing the total amount of litter that still plagues Canada’s shorelines (anywhere where land meets water), and negatively impacts surrounding communities, and wildlife. That’s why this year, even more volunteers and site coordinators are needed to battle shoreline litter, a major environmental issue. “No matter what form it comes in, shoreline litter and pollution puts ecosystems, wildlife and people at risk,” says Jill Dwyer, program manager for the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. “This litter can negatively impact water quality through contamination, as well as the health of plants and animals that live in that ecosystem.” The results of shoreline litter are far-reaching: Shoreline litter poses danger for people, and cause economic damage to areas that rely on tourism or water-based industries, like fishing. Local wildlife run the risk of getting tangled in or ingesting litter or other pollutants. Organisms often attach to litter as it flows through water systems, causing invasive species to infiltrate foreign habitats and damage the sensitive balance of the ecosystem. Wildlife entangled in litter such as plastic bags, six-pack rings, ribbon, fishing line or food wrappers can have their movements restricted, be injured or even eventually drown, suffocate or starve. Animals like sea turtles often mistake plastic bags for jellyfish and swallow them. This clogs their digestive tracts, leading to starvation and death. Water quality is affected by the toxins emitted from litter. The good news is that you can be part of the solution to keep our shorelines healthy for your community and wildlife. During last year’s cleanup effort in British Columbia, over 136,036 kg of shoreline litter was collected from the province’s shorelines – the approximate weight of 27 Steller sea lions – but there’s more where that came from. This fall, our national cleanup effort – part of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup –will take place from September 21-29. Adopt a local shoreline as a site coordinator, or volunteer with an existing cleanup – right in your own community. Online registration opens in May at ShorelineCleanup.ca, or sign up today by emailing ShorelineCleanup@vanaqua. org.

A20 June 28, 2013 The Richmond News

Sibling Rivalry and the Smothers Brothers (whom did Mom love best?) The comedy team known as the Smothers Brothers were quite famous back around the 1960’s and the 1970’s. The two brothers, musicians both, in their “Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” used to sing and tell jokes, many about their mother. Dick invariably (to intense laughter) ended up telling his brother, Tom, that “Mom always liked you best”. I don’t know whether their mother is still alive but if she isn’t, I wonder whether Dick Smothers had to launch Wills Variation proceedings. If there was any truth in what he said to Tom all those years, Tom probably was given a larger portion of her Estate. Last month, reasons for judgment were handed down in a case of what might also be called “sibling rivalry”. The case, called Kelly v. Bell, is one between sister and brother, and it was fairly clear which one mother liked best. Facts The parties’ mother died in November, 2008. The circumstances of the two children, both adults, were quite different. The Plaintiff (daughter) was university educated, had a husband who was successful, and the couple earned a good income, even after her retirement. They were financially secure. On the other hand, the defendant was partially disabled, was not university educated, and was not able to work at a full pace in light of his disability. He was divorced, not in a relationship, and had been living with his parents since 1994. He spent a lot of his time looking after his mother in the years before she died. His financial situation was poor. The Plaintiff’s relationship with her mother was distant for many years, while the Defendant’s was quite close. He sacrificed some of his working career to look after his mother. She was worried about him given his precarious financial situation, and wrote her Will accordingly. She bequeathed the defendant a larger portion of her Estate, and even swore a statutory declaration explaining why the distribution of her Estate was unequal between her two children. Terms of the Will The mother’s Will provided that her house and its contents were to be given to the defendant. The remainder of her Estate (the residue) was to be divided equally between the two siblings. It left the Defendant with assets worth more than $2 million while the Plaintiff was given assets worth about $350,000. Quite a disparity! Court’s decision The Court (per Madam Justice Kloegman, an outstanding Judge) rendered a most interesting decision. Pointing out that in ordinary circumstances, parents tend to distribute their Estate equally among their children, the Court added that it is open to parents, based on their child(ren)’s conduct, to distribute their assets unequally, as long as the reasons for doing it are accurate and rational. The Court cited B.C. case authority in this area as well. The Plaintiff in her testimony acknowledged all the behavior and contributions of the Defendant to their mother’s well being, and she acknowledged the troubles the defendant had in his efforts to find work, but she felt the distribution in the Will did not reflect her mother’s “true intention”. The Court agreed, pointing out that since the mother made her Will, the value of her house doubled, thus giving the Defendant about 88% of the Estate. At the time her Will was reviewed (with a Lawyer, in 2006), the Defendant was given about 77% of the Estate. What the Court held was that the mother seemed to be satisfied in 2006 with the Plaintiff receiving 23% of the Estate, and so that percentage was upheld as the share to be given to the Plaintiff. The Court seemed to not make a traditional analysis of a Wills Variation case, but instead quickly reached a very practical conclusion of what was a “just, adequate and equitable” distribution of this Estate. In my view, an extremely smart decision. Conclusions It was clear that mother loved her son best. But really, her decision to distribute her assets as she did was based on her concern for her son’s ability to financially look after himself. She did not need to be concerned about her daughter in that regard. In the Court’s holding that the mother likely did not want to leave her daughter such a small portion of the Estate (the 12% quoted), the Court was probably correct. It is also thought provoking to me that in the last year or so, many Court decisions in this area seem to be in favour of upholding or largely upholding the distribution of Estates as contemplated in the Wills, as opposed to significantly varying the Wills to reach a different result. In this case, the Court also noted that the mother sought further legal advice in 2006 regarding her intended distribution of her Estate. I find that encouraging as well. It turned out to have been good planning on the part of the mother.

HISTORY

Taking a look back at Westwood, ‘Canada’s racetrack’ BY BRENDAN MCALEER Special to the News

It’s a housing development now, a knot of quiet residential streets with names like Mulberry, Maplewood and Chickadee. Large, detached singlefamily homes sit cheekby-jowl, their driveways cluttered with compact sedans and crossovers. Once though, this was a

battlefield. Maybe you can hear the imaginary echoes as you putter down Paddock Drive, keeping an eye out for kids on bikes. Maybe your eyes are sharp enough to see the faded scar of Turn 3 through the tree-line. All plowed up and bulldozed over — the maw of BC’s housing boom is unstoppably rapacious in its appetite for land.

The development marches right up the side of Eagle Ridge in Coquitlam, right up to the edge of the forest. The only racing now is done on bicycles, or in these suburban basements on gaming consoles or Hot Wheels tracks. But once upon a time, this was Canada’s racetrack: Westwood. Built in 1959, the Westwood circuit was carved into the mountain’s ridge beside the Coquitlam river by the Sports Car Club of BC. Tired of shredding tires on the rough and rutted asphalt of local airfields, club members wanted a dedicated facility at which to indulge their need for speed. Circling the hat, they collectively raised enough

funds to lease a parcel of land from the Crown and built a swooping, curving, 1.8-mile course amid the pines. From the air, it looked like a Valentine’s Day card drawn by a not-especiallytalented four-year-old. The twin humps of the

steeply-banked carousel and valley corner curve formed the top of the skinny “heart” and then there were the twin straights, elongating out to a tight turn: Marshall’s Hairpin. Looking at a track-map, you’d think the wriggling S-curves of the road that

ran past pit lane would be the more challenging of the two straights. You’d be wrong (though they were no picnic), the arrow-linear Mountain Straight had a considerable hummock right in the middle. Dubbed “Deer’s see Races page 24

Continued from page 22 Leap,” this bump would occasionally fling unwary drivers off into the weeds at high speed. This is what people did for fun in the days before Facebook. When it officially opened in July 1959, Westwood could lay claim to being the first dedicated road course in Canada. Over the next three decades it would host Formula Atlantic racing, Trans-Am and even NASCAR. Gilles Villeneuve would race here, as would Michael Andretti and Keke Rosenburg. Indy champions like Bobby Rahal and Danny Sullivan would also flog their machines around the course in anger, much to the delight of spectators. In 1976, the Vintage Racing Car Club of BC joined the scene, showcasing historic racers on the Canadian tarmac. While you might characterize club members as curators, historians and caretakers, don’t think they took the racing lightly. While there are no official prizes or trophies, a racecar cannot be pussyfooted around a racecourse meekly. It champs at the bit. It squirms under the bridle and dances sideways impatiently. It gets under your skin. Certainly the club members who were on the track at Mission Raceways in May weren’t holding back much — they drive both to show off their love of the machinery and share in a sort of camaraderie of speed, but also to spread the gospel. Watching these early Formula Fords and race-prepped specials streak past the bleachers is like having an access-pass to a time-machine. Granted, Mission’s tight, flat circuit isn’t anything like the rolling surface of the Westwood facility. And yes, rubbing elbows with a group of middle-aged folks — most of whom smell faintly of improperly combusted hydrocarbons — and getting all excited over somewhat elderly and brittle thoroughbreds isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. But I was there. I was there with my

We heard the thunder of American V8s and the accented burr of race-fettled British four-pots. We filtered among the racers and spectators and listened to the stories that poured out to be compared and contrasted. What it used to be like. The time Gilles signed the plywood message board. Picking bits of tree out of your britches after a whoopsy-daisy on the carousel. We went there as a family the way some people go to a library, or a museum, or a church. We went to learn, to be bathed in the reflected light of a golden past, to experience something beyond the tactile everyday. Mostly though, we went because it was a hell of a lot of fun.

The majestic Rockies lovingly embrace Lake Louise. Steeped with height and beauty, they tower above the quaint village, cocoon our cozy campground and set the scenic stage for our hikes in Banff National Park. After a short 25 kms (16 mile) drive from our last stop at Yoho National, we’ve been able to de-hitch our home, lace up our boots and hit the trail. “Check the sign, Babe,” Brent says, at the Eiffel Lake trailhead. Plastered next to bold text is a mug shot of a meanlooking grizzly. My bear bells suddenly take on a staccato beat. I glance at the holster can of bear spray attached to my husband’s belt. I just hope he can use it like a six-shooter if the need arises. “It says, by law, we have to hike in groups of four or more beyond this point.” I read aloud. “Do you think the four extra paws we’ve brought along will suffice?” Although Kalli, our year-old Schnauzer is a great hiking hound, she clearly doesn’t meet these requirements. Fortunately, Karen and Dave, a couple

from Invermere do. And after leaving the aqua-green Moraine Lake behind, we chat while ascending together up 10 switchbacks and 320m (1,000 feet). There’s a fork at the switchback’s summit, and while our new-found hiking buddies head to Sentinel Pass, we tag along with others going to Eiffel Lake. Within minutes we’re out of the trees, traversing a sunny slope that’s overlooking the Valley of Ten Peaks. Tiny Moraine Lake is now far below and rising from its silty shores are 10,000 foot-high mounds that loom over the predominant Wenkchemna Glacier. Some have steep crevices doused with avalanched snowfields. Many are striated and etched after eons of weathering. All are stunning. Even our leashed trail-blazer is impressed. With her nose to the ground stone, our pup leads the way –across open meadows fringed with golden larch, over sketchy sections of rubble and rock. Plowing through snowdrifts, sniffing at wildflowers, alert to nearby critters; ground squirrels in the woodlands, mellow marmots in the sub-alpine and rock rabbits who screech from their stony alpine homes. see Pristine page 28

The bedrock slope where we dine covers the entire hillside, and encircles the below shores of Eiffel Lake. Setting the backdrop and erupting from the verdant valley are those 10 peaks – powder dusted to perfection and ever so pristine. The trail continues beyond for heartier hikers – another four kilometers of trekking into the high alpine and they’ll meet the Continental Divide. We, on the other hand, decide to retrace our steps. And while sauntering back over the view-boasting slope our group number diminishes. Some have fallen back, others have moved ahead. By the time we reach the switchback junction there’s just the three of us (and that’s counting our canine). I think about the pack rule and wonder if our pup will dub as a bear protector. “Do you want to join our group,” the fit-looking German asks. “We’re heading up to Sentinel Pass.” Although my feet have endured more natural step classes this past week than I thought possible, it is our last day at Lake Louise. And it’s only three kilometres to this popular spot. How hard can it be? Sunlight glints off the golden stands that border our Larch Valley trail and the 10 mammoth peaks that we had recently zoomed in on now beautify the backdrop. We gradually ascend to a lake-dotted meadow and soaring to the heavens, just

Razor Z-sharp switchbacks etch the steep pitch and from this lower viewpoint we can make out an ant-size human chain. Although dubious of my footing and balance, I have my trusty poles and pup to propel me along. Breath, then step. Don’t look down. While repeating this mind-calming mantra and tethered to Kalli I eventually make the grade to this highest hiking pass in the Rockies. From the wind-blown 12,000 foot apex, I’m breathless. And whether it’s from the thin air or wowing vista, there are two things I can be sure of. Thanks to the steady stream of hikers on this trail, my husband’s six-shooter skills won’t be necessary. And because of the four extra paws we’ve brought along, I’m assured of getting help back to sea level.

Gawdin earns his way onto Team Pacific shortlist Seafair Minor Hockey product Glenn Gawdin is among four members of the Greater Vancouver Canadians who have been shortlisted to play for Team Pacific at the 2014 World U17 Hockey Challenge. Gawdin was selected fifth overall by the Swift Current Broncos in the 2012 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft and lived up to the billing by leading the Canadians in scoring with 46 points in 40 games, including 24 goals. He enjoyed a solid post season too, finishing second among all scorers in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League. The McRoberts secondary student also helped B.C. capture the Western Canada U16 Challege last fall. He capped a strong tournament with a goal in two assists in a 9-3 win over Alberta in the championship game. Gawdin is expected to crack the Broncos line-up in September.

Team Pacific Management Committee,” said Head Coach, Steve Hamilton. “With the modified format of taking the top 22 players, the staff has the opportunity to build a greater connection with the players and shape this roster with a winning formula.” Team Pacific alumni include: Ryan Nugent Hopkins (2010), Evander Kane (2008), Brent Seabrook (2002) and Joe Sakic (1986). “I can’t remember a

group that is this deep and special; both Alberta and B.C. were in the gold medal game at the Western Canada Challenge Cup and what many of these players have already done with club teams is very exciting to the staff,” says head scout, Wade Klippenstein. “We can’t wait to get all 46 athletes on the same sheet of ice to see who will fit in the best in terms of short-term competition and leadership so we can have the best team possible.”

MARK BOOTH/RICHMOND NEWS

Seafair alumni Glenn Gawdin has been shortlisted to play for Team Pacific at the 2014 U17 World Hockey Challenge after a productive season in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League. Three of Gawdin’s Canadians teammates are also in the hunt to earn a Team Pacific roster spot — goaltender Taz Burman, defenceman Ty Schultz and forward Adam Musil. They will be joined by 42 other top prospects from B.C. and

Alberta at the Team Pacific Summer Development Camp, slated for July 24-28 in Calgary. The 22-player roster will be finalized in late November with the World Hockey Challenge slated to start Dec. 29 in Cape Breton, NB.

The team will be coached by Steve Hamilton, an assistant with the WHL’s Edmonton Oil Kings. “It’s quite a privilege to be selected as head coach and I’m excited for the opportunity to work with this coaching staff and the

teaching degree at UBC. She taught in Richmond for many years before retiring to focus on raising her family and the ever-growing Panther program. She has chaired the B.C Cheerleading Association and is a member of the committee that certifies judges in B.C. A nomination letter was read out prior to Kennedy receiving the award. “Stephanie passionately believes that through the sport of cheerleading we are able to work with young people and help them develop and grow into confident, self reliant, independent and thoughtful young adults. She also knows how difficult it is to raise our children in a world that bombards young girls with images that erode their self esteem, make them question their worth and their place in this world, and tries to make them grow up far too soon. “This is why she continues to stay involved with cheer, as she feels it is unlike any other sport and she can really make a difference.
