Calling for a cull The overpopulation of snow geese this winter has caused Coun. Harold Steves to seek a mass cull, as the geese leave areas muddy and devoid of vegetation.
Sour smell of success wafts over city Sheer volume of food scraps causing foul odours BY ALAN CAMPBELL
CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS
The Lower Mainland’s successful food waste recycling program is causing the city’s stench. $
It seems like, for the time being at least, Richmond is paying the price for the success of the entire Lower Mainland’s food waste recycling programs. Such is the volume of food scraps and organic waste pouring into the composting facility in East Richmond, near No. 7 and Blundell roads, that foul fermenting stenches have drifted over large parts of the city for several months. Metro Vancouver has been fielding wafts of complaints from ticked-off Richmondites, wondering where the smell is coming from, what it is and if it’s going to go away. The regional body, which is responsible for air quality, confirmed on Tuesday that the majority of the complaints have been traced back to the Richmond facility, which is run by Fraser Richmond Soil and Fibre and owned by Harvest Power. And such is the potency of the stench, Metro Vancouver may take a second look at what people are allowed to put in their organic waste bins for collection. Harvest Power also confirmed to the News that part of the problem has been the unexpected volume of food waste arriving at the plant from new or recent door-to-door collection programs across the region.

However, staff from Metro Vancouver have been working for several weeks with their counterparts at the facility to come up with a plan to keep the stench to a minimum. “The volume (of food waste) increased more quickly than expected,” read a statement from Oregon-based Harvest Power. “We are proud of the community’s commitment to recycling. We are working diligently to meet the needs of the community.” Harvest Power has also released a dedicated hotline for residential complaints about odours and other matters — 604836-8387. Metro Vancouver’s environment enforcement manager, Ray Robb, told the News it’s now working closely with the facility to reduce the frequency and strength of the odour. “As the volume (of food scraps) have gone up, the odours have become more extensive across wider areas,” said Robb. “We’re working with the company right now, looking at containing the odour better, which is a fermenting smell that seems to travel across longer distances.” Robb said the bio-filters in the processing plant “could be doing a better job” and that enclosing parts of the screening process would go a long way to dealing with the odours. see Metro Vancouver page 4

Canuck legends, Lafleur to join oval Hockey Day City council agreed Monday to pay $76,500 ($58,000 from the major events provision and $18,500 from the current operating budget) to host the event, while $22,500 will come from the oval’s budget, which the city contributes heavily to. The remaining $69,000 needed to put the event on is expected to come from external sources, such as ticket and sponsorship revenues. Other attractions on the day, which will be broadcast nationally on CBC, will include a road hockey tournament on the oval’s riverfront plaza, a special appearance by Montreal Canadiens legend Guy Lafleur. Richmond Celebrates Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada takes place Feb. 9, 2013.

The second Richmond Celebrates Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada has been set for the new Family Day holiday next February. The extravaganza of “all things hockey” at the Olympic oval will this year feature a ticketed hockey game involving Vancouver Canucks alumni from their famous 1994 Stanley Cup playoff run. Estimated to cost around $168,000 to put on — less than last year’s $209,000 — the Hockey Day in Canada event will also have interactive ball hockey, table hockey, floor hockey and road hockey for the expected 16,000 crowd.

Coun. seeks snow geese cull
Council urged to delay fin ban till after court decision BY ALAN CAMPBELL
BY KEVIN GRIFFIN, MIKE HAGER The Vancouver Sun
Each winter tens of thousands of white snow geese descend upon western Richmond. With a cacophony of honking, they root through local schoolyards and parks leaving the areas devoid of vegetation but full of mud and feces. The increasing population has longtime Richmond Coun. Harold Steves calling for a cull of the waterfowl. While he supports a new program to train volunteers and their dogs to chase geese away from public lands, he said it won’t do much more than move the birds from one field to another. Steves originally called for the cull 10 years ago, before the geese moved inland from Sturgeon Banks, the 8,700-hectare estuary to the west of Richmond. At the time, he said, he was roundly criticized for supporting killing the birds. “I have a report from 1972 when there were 20,000 snow geese in the Fraser River estuary,” he said. “When I was calling for the cull there were 80,000 snow geese. Last year, there were 100,000.” This year, he predicted, there could be as many as 120,000. Richmond is planning to train a limited number of volunteers and their
The City of Richmond may wait until a legal challenge is cleared up in Toronto before deciding on whether to ban shark fin products. City staff — who were tasked by council two months ago to investigate the possibility of a ban — advised councillors Monday that it might be best to hang fire until an Ontario judge issues a verdict. A pro-shark fin group from the local Chinese Canadian community, called the Fair and Responsible Governance Alliance, filed a suit against Toronto’s shark fin ban. The case was heard earlier this month and a judgment has still to be made. Earlier this year, Anthony Marr, of the Vancouver Animal Defense League, asked the City of Richmond to ban shark fin, considered a Chinese delicacy, usually used in soup. The city agreed to look into a ban, but since then, the B.C. Asian Restaurant and Cafe Owners Association’s David Chung, who owns the Jade Seafood restaurant in Richmond, has threatened legal action. He was backed last month by Richmond MP Alice Wong who, in front of Chinese language media only, sat down to a bowl of shark fin soup, adding that the matter is a federal responsibility and any ban would be culturally insensitive. City spokesperson Ted Townsend told the News the city is continuing to do its own research and have discussions with the City of Vancouver, which is also drafting a ban. A report could be in front of council “fairly quickly” once the Toronto judge has made his decision, he added. For the full story, visit www.richmond-news.com.

Volunteers will be trained professionally, assigned to a specific park or field, and given an identifying vest to wear. They will work at their convenience from 4 p.m. to dusk Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to dusk on weekends. Steves said part of the reason for the increasing number of geese has to do with global warming. With more snow melting earlier on the birds’ summer nesting area on Wrangel Island, a Russian territory in the Arctic Ocean, the geese have used the expanding breeding ground to produce more offspring.

News Youth’s leg shot Accused know as ‘God’: Teen Terra Nova in drive-by bags No. 6 BY KEITH FRASER The Province
BY ALAN CAMPBELL
Martin Tremblay was known to the young girls who partied at his house as their “street dad” or “God,” a teenage girl testified Monday. The Richmond man has pleaded not guilty to two counts of criminal negligence causing death in connection with the drug and alcohol overdose deaths of two teens, Kayla Lalonde and Martha Jackson, following a night of partying. The witness, who cannot be identified due to a publication ban, said Tremblay was known to her as God and to Lalonde as her street dad. The teen, who was dating Lalonde at the time of her death in March 2010, said Tremblay would pick up the girls and take them to his Richmond home, where he supplied hard liquor, including vodka and whisky. Tremblay, a serial sex offender, also gave one of the girls a heart
An 18-year-old male was taken to hospital after being shot in Richmond Thursday. At around 5 p.m., Richmond RCMP received reports of shots fired in the area of Garden City and Capstan Way. Witnesses reported one person had been shot and that suspects fled in a vehicle. Police quickly found the victim, who is known to them, before realizing he had been shot once in the leg. He was then taken to hospital for treatment and is in stable condition. Richmond RCMP said the investigation is at a “very preliminary stage” and it’s unclear whether or not the shooting was targeted or if it’s gang related. Richmond RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit is continuing with the investigation. Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has information, is asked to call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

locket and provided food, cigarettes and money, she said. On the night of Lalonde’s death, she said, she communicated a number of times with her friend, who was partying at Tremblay’s home. The last time she spoke to Lalonde that night, she said, her friend was crying and “saying that Martin had given them all a line of MDMA and coke mixed together. They snorted it. She said she was sorry.” The witness said she was told that everyone at the party was drunk and she spoke to Tremblay on the phone. “He said Kayla was getting sick and she kept puking,” she said. “I was asking him if she was getting ready to go home and he said she was passed out and kept puking.” Tremblay told her that at one point he left the home and came back later to find Lalonde passed out, she told B.C.

her and asked to meet her and told her that Kayla Lalonde had left and he didn’t know where she was, the witness said. “He said if anyone asked where we got the (alcohol) to tell them it wasn’t from him.” She testified that after leaving Tremblay, she learned that Lalonde and Jackson were dead, and spoke to him by phone later in the day, telling him that the girls were dead. “He started crying. I said I would be there for him and if he needed anything, I would help...” The Crown’s theory is that Tremblay did little to help the girls and showed a wanton and reckless disregard for their lives. Prosecutors allege Tremblay took Lalonde in a vehicle and drove her to a location in Burnaby where her body was left on the roadside. She died later. Seven hours later, paramedics arrived at Tremblay’s home, but could not revive Jackson. ❚ Full story at www.richmondnews.com.
Metro Vancouver: Might change what gets recycled Continued from page 1 “(The company) are being asked to do a better job preventing the odours’ formation, the collection of the odours and the treatment of the odours.” Robb said Metro Vancouver will be meeting frequently with the company to “encourage” them to do more. “We might look, longer term, at restricting some of the materials that are going into the program,” he added. “We want to keep encouraging people to recycle their food waste, but we may change what can go in there.” Harvest Power said it was “absolutely committed to dealing with this issue,” and sees the issue as a “temporary problem that we can fully resolve.” It says it’s “actively addressing the odours” through such measures as: Increasing and upgrading the facility’s bio-filter capacity; implementation of a facilitywide emission audit program; installation of additional odour control technology and modeling; regularly checking on air quality downwind from the facility as a quality control practice; and opening a new digester that will be used to process food waste indoors. It also recently finished enclosing the screening area. “The most significant addition is an anaerobic digestion facility that recently came online that will divert odourous material into a closed air system,” the company’s statement read. In addition, they will unveil a new visitor’s centre in the spring, designed to provide information to, and get feedback from, their neighbours and the public so they can “continue to deal with any issues.”

Rural park given innovation nod The tally now sits at six — and who’s to say there’s not more to come. Terra Nova Rural Park has its sixth award, this time it was the Innovation Award from the World Leisure Organization. The city has received six major awards since 2007 for the innovative park, including provincial, national and international honours. “This is a tremendous honour for Richmond and the community partners who work with us in Terra Nova Rural Park as it recognizes what a special place that, together, we have created in Terra Nova Rural Park,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “Terra Nova is more than just a park; it’s a community gathering place where history and nature come together with modern-day programs that ensure our city continues to be a great place to live now and in the future.” Founded in 1952, the World Leisure Organization is a world-wide, non-governmental association of persons and organizations dedicated to discovering and fostering those conditions best permitting leisure to serve as a force for human growth, development and well-being. Richmond was honoured along other local governments and organizations from all over the globe, which have found innovative ways to engage their communities in healthy and meaningful leisure activities. Some of the community partners active in Terra Nova Rural Park include the Richmond Sharing Farm, the Terra Nova Schoolyard Society, the Richmond Food Security Society, the Richmond Nature Park Society and the Kwantlen Farm School. The city is continuing restoration of a number of heritage facilities within the park.

Documentary provides bullying solutions City approves new community plan
BY YVONNE ROBERTSON
Richmond City Council approved a new Official Community Plan (OCP) at a public hearing on Monday evening. With the title, “Moving Towards Sustainability”, the new OCP sets the framework for Richmond’s future development to 2041. This new plan prepares Richmond for the next 30 years of development, providing a plan for sustainable growth. According to the city, the updated plan includes targets for Richmond’s population to grow from almost 200,000 to 280,000 by 2041, by allowing increased density in selected areas, while protecting existing single-family neighbourhoods, farmland and environmentally sensitive areas. Other significant new measures include steps to support Richmond’s aging population, plans to reduce reliance on the vehicle for local transportation and supporting the city’s commitments to combat climate change. The new OCP was approved in a unanimous 7-0 vote, with two members of council, Derek Dang and Evelina Halsey-Brandt, absent. The city last updated its OCP in 1999. The new 2041 OCP Update was prepared with the extensive participation of residents, business owners and stakeholders.

tives through playback theatre — where they act out the shared experience with other possible resolutions. “It’s surprising how many students really do open up and share,” said Pawson. “We were at a school a week ago, and one student shared his story about being bullied. Even though he broke down a little, he said he felt relief and hope in the end.” Students’ stories often extend past the schoolyard, from being bullied by family members to contemplating suicide or mourning the loss of a friend who committed the act. Many of the students approach the members after a workshop and continue to keep in touch with them. Some even decide to join the group. “We want the youth to feel empowered, and we do that by providing youth models,” said Pawson. “I hope people can see that youth and individuals can make a difference. People don’t have to suffer and be lonely. All it takes is the power of one — one person who befriends someone.” Directed and produced by one of the trainers Ana Carrizales, the documentary switches from visuals of the troupe performing for classes to interviews with the members and students about the experience. A Q&A with Pawson, Carrizales and the troupe members will follow the screening and Pawson hopes to open the dialogue to the audience.

There’s nothing new about bullying, but the consequences seem to have become more dire as the act no longer stays within the schoolyard, but extends to the 24-hour world of social media. It’s this lack of escape that’s pushed people into action from the international It Gets Better campaign to more local initiatives. And now a performing youth troupe, Richmond in 3D (Diversity, Dialogue and Drama) wants to offer schools an additional resource to combat the problem. A Journey to Action, which will be premiered this evening (Wednesday) at the Richmond Olympic Oval, was filmed throughout the past year as the group delivered workshops on how to tackle bullying, discrimination and racism to various schools across the city. The documentary will be part of a toolkit delivered to schools as an antibullying initiative. The other components include a facilitation guide for teachers and strategies for students to confront the issue. “It has to do with sustainability,” said project director Mark Pawson. “It’s not part of the curriculum or anything, but it can be a resource or a guide for action. “Depending on our funding, we might start focusing on other issues next, like immigration, so this documentary is something schools can always use to deal with bullying.” Funded by the province and Richmond Multicultural Community Services, the troupe, of about 23 members from 14 to 20-something years old, conduct workshops to schools and community organizations about diversity and racism. In the past year, they received funding to address bullying in schools. Through performance and dialogue, the members share their stories with Richmond classes and suggest ways to create a more inclusive environment. They also encourage students to talk about their own experiences with bullying and present alterna-

RCMP defends its value BY ALAN CAMPBELL
The RCMP is insisting it’s good value for money when it comes to providing a police service to the City of Richmond. Referring to a 31-page report which was made public after the News’ deadline on Thursday, the Mounties’ Insp. Ted De Jager, of the E-Division headquarters, pointed out that Richmond currently spends less per citizen on policing compared to cities with independent municipal police services. It was further pointed out that, from 2001 to 2010, the per capita policing cost of the Richmond RCMP was 34 per cent below its independent municipal police service peer group. And, for the same period, the cost per Richmond RCMP member was six per cent below the independent municipal police service peer group. De Jager added that RCMP member salaries increased by just six per cent from 2008 to 2012, whereas salaries increased by 14 per cent in the independent municipal police service peer group. In a move instigated by a long-term disdain for the RCMP’s “lack of accountability,” city council’s community safety committee asked staff Wednesday to drill down the numbers on setting up an independent police department. Prior to Wednesday’s meeting, city staff wanted to see and analyze the RCMP report, before offering their views to committee. However, the city didn’t receive the report until last Friday. City council had instructed staff to begin gathering information on the possibility of policing alternatives in June. It’s not clear exactly when the RCMP was asked to contribute, with the city only saying it made the request, “earlier this year.”
Nevertheless, the city did move closer this week to setting up its own police force, while sliding away from a joint deal with the VPD. The independent option — one of five presented to councillors by staff — included outsourcing specialized services to other policing agencies, such as the RCMP’s homicide investigation team. Although commending the local RCMP detachment for the excellent service it provides, Mayor Malcolm Brodie and other council members reiterated that the costs and service standards are just two of the factors at play. Brodie successfully tabled a motion asking staff to closer examine the finances for the aforementioned option; in particular the pricey transition costs estimated between $20 million and $36 million. Staff were also asked to come back with an analysis and comment on an RCMP report which, according to the Mounties, justifies why they’re good value for money. Staff will also consider in greater depth whether there is any actual prospect of a regional police force being supported and spearheaded by the province. Finally, the committee want staff to invite the mayor of Esquimalt to come talk to council about that city’s reportedly negative experience of breaking away from the Mounties. The option of setting up a joint force with Vancouver is still on the table — along with sticking with the RCMP, a totally independent and self-sufficient force or a subregional force. Committee members, however, seemed to favour Richmond having its own police department (with external specialized services), a move estimated on the side of caution by staff as costing $1.6 million to $3.2 million more a year to run that paying for the RCMP.
Is that your bike or guitar? Are you missing a Pinarello bicycle or a black Ibanez guitar? If so, take a look at these pictures. In March of 2011, Richmond RCMP began an investigation into a break and enter at a local business. Property was seized during the course of the investigation and must now be disposed of as the case has been successfully concluded in court. Two items seized were a black Ibanez guitar of unknown value and a Pinarello carbon fibre bicycle, valued at approximately $3,000. Investigators have taken all necessary steps to locate the rightful owners without any success. If the guitar or bicycle pictured belong to you, contact Const. Penney at 604-278-1212.

Rough week for premier
ne has to feel for Premier Christy Clark, no matter what one’s political affiliations may be. In one week she was faced with a former Liberal MLA, John van Dongen, yet again, demanding an investigation into the 2003 sale of B.C. Rail, this time focusing on Clark’s reputed role in the sale, or her attendance during discussions on the sale. The conflict charge arises out of her brother’s and ex-husband’s connections to the sale at the time. She said she was glad to “put a fork” into the allegations. But we think she’d rather put a fork into some of her critics’ eyes. And then her sincere and important work on anti-bullying is somewhat overshadowed when the mother of Amanda Todd is told she cannot attend the bullying forum — even as an observer — even though other parents who have lost children to suicide are at the event. The rationale is that her appearance, given the recent suicide of her daughter, may upset some younger people at the event. It’s a debatable rationale — but even if it was a solid rationale — the way it was handled was clumsy and insensitive. And then, to top it off, more leaked correspondence from the Burnaby Hospital’s citizen consultation committee paints a picture of calculating and out-of-touch Liberal insiders more intent on spinning than fixing health care in the city. Meanwhile, over in the NDP camp, Adrian Dix watches as Mike Farnworth shares more damning correspondence from the committee. Dix doesn’t even comment on the brouhaha seemingly too busy making friends with the business community and allaying their fears to be bothered to either get, or appear, negative. All this during the week that is exactly six months before the next provincial election. Perhaps, Clark is saying, “It can’t get worse, can it?”
Public schools exemplify multiculturalism
The Editor, Re: “Serving across religious nets,” News, Nov. 16. Although I applaud the efforts of the Richmond Jewish Day School, Cornerstone Christian Academy and Az-Zahraa Islamic Academy in their attempt to promote an understanding and respect for other cultures and religions through the organizing of a friendly volleyball tournament, one comment struck me as rather odd. The principal of the Richmond Jewish Day School was quoted as saying, “When was the last time a Muslim kid talked to a Jewish kid or a Christian kid?” It happens every single day in my school. It’s called public education. Students in my Grade 7 classroom interact on a daily basis with classmates who practice different religions, speak different languages in the home and who present a variety of abilities and needs, both physical and intellectual. Our students develop an understanding and tolerance of others. Over the past few years I have had students who speak Tagalog, Urdu, Mandarin, Cantonese, Russian, Farsi, Vietnamese, Italian, Somali, Hebrew, Arabic, French and Spanish, among others. We are all the better for having had the opportunity to work and play alongside one another. I fail to see how sending your child to be educated in isolation from the realities of our community, and world, is helpful in developing a sense of community, or an understanding of others. It is a disservice to them. Jamie Tolman Richmond
Leaders can learn from past NDP mistakes A new book on a pivotal time in B.C. history is an excellent guide for how a government can ensure it won’t survive, no matter how good its intentions. And even though the book is about the NDP government of the 1970s, one assumes current NDP leader Adrian Dix realizes it contains lessons he won’t want to repeat if he forms government next spring. The Art of the Impossible: Dave Barrett and the NDP in Power 1972-1975 paints a picture of a government on a frantic roller coaster ride, eager to fulfill ambitions that had lingered for decades and wanting to do so as quickly as possible. The authors, Rod Mickleburgh and Geoff Meggs, provide a sympathetic account of Barrett’s wild ride. While mindful of the historic legacy of his government, they don’t sugarcoat the sense of near-chaos, poor planning and lack of strategy that ultimately doomed Barrett’s administration. There’s no question the NDP government of the 1970s established a rich and enduring legacy of landmark legislation that changed B.C. for the better in so many areas of society. But in their rush to do so much, they made many missteps. The Barrett government picked fights everywhere, including with their own supporters, many of whom were blind to the realities of government
Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE
and what it took to get reelected. And Barrett contributed in a great way to the polarization of B.C. politics, which ultimately worked against him and the NDP in the years following. After his defeat in 1975, Barrett fought two more elections against Social Credit premier Bill Bennett and lost each time. Polarization pitted the NDP against a larger pool of voters united against them, thus ensuring their loss. The Art of the Impossible also shows how much B.C.’s political culture has changed since the time it covers, and here is where the lessons come in. First, the organized labour movement is a shadow of its former self. Barrett had to deal with powerful private sector union leaders who threatened to bring down his government after he legislated more than 50,000 striking workers back on the job. In fact, it can be argued much of that labour movement deserted the NDP in the 1975 election, which was akin to cutting their nose to spite their face, as the Social Credit government was far less friendly to its interests.
But labour no longer has that kind of political might. Much of its power now resides among public sector unions, more narrowly focused on their own plight. This removes a potential headache for Dix should he become premier. Another thing that jumps out of The Art of the Impossible is how the forest industry has also almost disappeared from the political arena. Back then, of course, forestry was the dominant industry in this province and even talk of work stoppages in it were huge events. Today, the industry has suffered thousands of job losses and simply doesn’t have the financial or political clout that played such a prominent role before. Neither Dix nor Clark shows any signs of emulating Barrett’s approach to governing. Dix keeps stressing he has a “modest” agenda for government, and has repeatedly said he doesn’t intend to bring in a lot of legislation. As for Clark, she seems genuinely disinterested (if not contemptuous) of the legislature. But she is also trying to polarize everything, to make the choice next May a stark one between left and right with nothing in the middle. It is Clark who is behaving more like Barrett. Ah, such are the ironies of B.C. politics! Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Letters Leave snow geese alone Thank you for the tire help Open letter to mayor and councillors, Re: “Richmond councillor seeks mass snow geese cull,” Online, Nov. 19. Was Mr. Steeves referring to the Lifeforce campaign in the early ‘80s that led to a hunting ban in part of Richmond? If so, he also agreed that hunting was no longer compatible with other recreational activity in the area. Kids were playing near hunters, a dog was shot, wounded ducks were left to die, and kids were faced with bloodied dead ducks. In addition, hunters used graffiti to try to intimidate anti-hunters. Heck, hunters even shot at me when I was in a canoe using an air horn to keep ducks away
from hunters. It is somewhat surprising that anyone would want to destroy this annual gift of nature. It is a wonderful experience to see the thousands of migrating snow geese on their life journey. Tourists and residents flock to see them. Last year people enjoyed the snowy owls too. Who is really destroying farmland? The migrating geese or all of the development due to human overpopulation? I urge you to continue with humane, nonlethal methods when or if needed. Peter Hamilton Lifeforce, founding director
Cadets helped success of poppy fund The Editor, Re: “Cadets missing from poppy sales,” Letters, Nov. 14. The Royal Canadian Poppy Fund would like to enlighten Mr. Weston and others on the participation and hard work by the Richmond Cadet Corps during our Poppy Fund Campaign 2012. Our cadets were canvassing at Richmond malls and major businesses every weekend for a total of eight days from Oct. 26 to Nov. 10, regardless of the
very wet, cold weather conditions. The Richmond Cadet Corps is always a big asset to our Poppy Fund Drive every year. A special thank you to the Richmond Cadet Corps, as well as Richmond malls, business and all the volunteers who helped make our Poppy Fund Campaign 2012 a big success. Robert Young, Richmond Poppy Fund 2012, chairman
On Wednesday, after work, I drove to the garden shop on No. 6 Road to buy some winter pansies. I parked in their lot, went into a greenhouse to look at the flowers, and when I came out to back my car closer to the greenhouse, I saw that my back right tire was nearly flat. I froze. Where was the nearest gas station? How would I get there? I stopped one of the workers and pointed to my tire, and he said “Wait, we have air!” Meanwhile, I cleared the clutter on top of my spare tire and found the jack and the wrench. Two workers appeared with a huge air compressor, but by this time the tire was completely flat.
Before I knew it, the two men had my car jacked up and the spare tire on (the first time in eight years I’d used it). One of the workers directed me to Bridgeport Road, where there was a Cal Tire. I was unbelievably grateful, but the story gets better! Dan Titina, at Cal Tire, had my tire off, repaired and back on again in 20 minutes. Meanwhile, I got coffee, popcorn and an interesting conversation. Thank you to all of you Good Samaritans! I lost less than an hour of time, but I gained a world of respect for my good neighbours in Richmond. Gudrun Heckerott Richmond

SPCA Richmond reduces adoption fees for cats “Fall for Kittens”. “Across the province, including Richmond, there has been a massive cat overpopulation problem,” said Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA. “The breeding season starts in May, which is when we witness an influx of kittens brought in. At the end of September, the clowder of kittens admitted starts to decrease; however, this year, cats
BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST Special to the News
Christmas arrives early this year: the BC SPCA Richmond Education & Adoption Centre is offering a 50 per cent discount on all feline adoption fees, encouraging residents to take care of kittens and adult cats in need for a warm home. The temporary reduction — running from Nov. 26 till Dec. 9 — is part of the promotional campaign
and kittens have still been coming in fast and furious through October and November.” When asked for the reason behind the pressing overpopulation issue, she referred to a lack of responsibility of pet owners. “A lot of people won’t spay or neuter their cats,” she said. “They’re getting the message when it
comes to dogs, but with cats, it’s still a huge problem.” As a result, many kittens are abandoned, increasing the number of free-roaming cats out on the streets. To solve the problem, the animals available for adoption at SPCA facilities have already been spayed and neutered. Moreover, they have
been vaccinated and provided with an identification tattoo and preventative treatment for internal and external parasites. As an additional bonus, all kittens and adult cats are covered by six weeks pet insurance courtesy of Petsecure to ensure their health during the critical rehoming period. Since SPCA Richmond wants to ensure animals
match their families, the usual adoption criteria will apply. New owners must be financially capable to care for their pet, and each member has to stand behind the expansion of the family. All adoptable animals and information on SPCA Richmond facility can be found on www.spca.bc.ca.

BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News
This Saturday, get ready for a double Diamond musical performance. Veteran children’s musician Charlotte Diamond returns to the stage at Lansdowne Centre for her Family Holiday Delight Concert. And this year, she will be accompanied for the first time in concert by her son, Matthew Diamond. “Over the years he’s always been my webmaster, technician, and producer,” said Diamond, laughing. “There was just a turn of events that he started spending more time recently on the music side of things. When the opportunity came to add another member to my group it worked out really well.” While it may be the 37-year-old’s first time performing live, he and younger brother Thomas have previously starred as singers in numerous tracks like “Laundry Monster”, a song Diamond said she wrote in protest to the voluminous amounts of laundry the siblings created daily. The duo also co-wrote some of Diamond’s most well-known hits like “Slimy the Slug” and “Dicky Dinosaur”. Matthew Diamond will be lending his electric guitar and vocal talents as he, his mother and long-time keyboardist Bob Wishinski perform past favourites as well as two previously unreleased tracks — “Ti-U”, a song Diamond described as
a “funky melody that makes it easy to get up and dance,” and “I Have Shoes and I Can Walk”, an “action song” that inspires people to put on their shoes and walk, run or dance. The songs are planned to be on a 14th album that is currently in the works. A former schoolteacher in the Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland, Diamond said this year has been as busy as ever in her musical career that has spanned 27 years. “You always develop and evolve. My ability to interact with the audience is at its peak, getting people who will sing along. Having the three-part harmony with Bob and Matthew will make a big difference.” Diamond said she has also implemented a comedy component to her performances over the years, adding to an already eclectic repertoire that includes playing guitar, piano, and singing songs in French and Spanish. She attributed her love of music to family influence. “In my home we sang all the time. We gathered around the piano, and my auntie and mom sang a cappella all the time. Singing like that teaches you to become very good on pitch.” You can catch Diamond, her son and Wishinski’s one-hour show by the Lansdowne Centre kiosk stage on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 1 p.m. For more information, visit www.charlottediamond. com.

More questions from readers, more answers Pro football not online, free HD TV in a ‘shoebox’ and why you should beware of the dark side
Question: I love watching the NFL, but I can’t seem to find it online. I tried several networks and it seems like they want me to buy a package of unlimited watching for (only) $200! That’s a tad rich for just watching the odd game. Any thoughts?
Barry Link THE PRACTICAL GEEK
to buy a pricey annual subscription and home games in your area are stupidly blacked out. Sports programming remains a potential stumbling block in going cable free.
Q: I just read “Cutting the Cord, part 1” and wanted to bring your attention to a local webpage hdtv4free.info which gives loads of info on how to make a super simple antenna and get free HDTV. We get CTV, CBC (watched the Olympics in HD), Global, City TV, Omni (not HD) just with a tiny antenna. You should check it out because it’s the bees knees. I’m biased since the page belongs to my boyfriend, but, truly, it is filled with great info. He gets emails from people all over the world who have hooked themselves up with one of these antennas and been blown away by the free digital signals they could pick up. I love having the option of watching local TV in real-time. I generally watch things on the PC, which is plugged into the TV, and switch to the antenna (with a click of the remote) to watch the news or
Barry Shanko Answer: My own quick search couldn’t find anything for the NFL online either. I did find at least one site offering “free streaming” of televised NFL games and while these might work, I wouldn’t trust sites for “free” on the Internet that isn’t directly from the copyright holder. (See last question below.) The NFL seems to be the one major professional sports league that doesn’t have apps on consoles like the Playstation or Xbox where you can actually watch live games. In contrast, the NHL, MLB and NBA offer apps on several platforms and devices for on demand viewing with high quality high-definition video feeds. (The CBC runs live NHL games online for free in those years when there isn’t a lockout.) The kicker of course is that you have
“So You Think You Can Dance”. We stopped paying for cable TV three years ago and I can’t imagine ever going back. Alethea A: I looked at the site and am passing it on to our readers. It’s a well thoughtout and helpful guide with more information and expertise about antennas than I can provide here. I like the shoebox antenna and the instructions for building it — I’m a fan of the DIY approach when it comes to consumer tech. Speaking of websites, readers might want to check out TVFool.com and Antennaweb.org, both recently recommended during a recent Know How video podcast on the online TWiT network. The Canadian-based Digitalhome.ca also has an active forum on getting free HDTV with over the air reception. Q: When are you going to explore the dark side and write about illegal means of getting TV and movies from the Internet? Newsroom Colleague A: Not any time soon. Downloading copyrighted material without paying through filesharing methods such as BitTorrent is likely illegal in Canada,

despite some greyness in the legality of downloading music files the same way due to prior court decisions. I’m not completely opposed to filesharing — there are interesting libertarian/anarchist arguments in support of it, and I’m not saying I’ve never done it. But I want the people who create the television and movies I enjoy to make a living and want to encourage the proliferation of paid models of distribution. For now, distribution is admittedly in the hands of Big Content, which admittedly places the interests of consumers last. That’s got to change. You are on your own in the darker areas of the web. In general, I’d be careful of sharing files or streaming from dodgy “free” sites through your browser — those are perfect opportunities for someone to infect your system, trick you into providing personal information online or bombard you with annoying and irrelevant advertising.

Jason Roberts, Lansdowne Centre general manager (left to right), Richmond News director of advertising Rob Akimow and Matt Pitcairn, Richmond Chamber of Commerce sport their Movember ’staches.
Contenders head into home stretch BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News
Entering the final stretch of the Richmond Moustache Challenge, things are getting mo’ hairy, indeed. Currently in fifth place out of eight local participants, Richmond News director of advertising Rob Akimow went on the defensive when asked for his assessment of the standings. “Yes, I’m getting my a** kicked, but I’m surprised guys with peach fuzz and ‘moustaches’ are doing better than me,” said Akimow, who is currently sporting what can only be described as a biker handlebar ‘stache gone feral. None of his challengers were safe. He wondered aloud whether John McGowan, fire chief at Richmond Fire-Rescue, was creeping out the local ladies while vacationing in Mexico; he said Dr. Kenneth Poon from the urology department at Richmond Hospital is just growing a regular beard, and
believes the fuzz on Richmond Chamber of Commerce’s Matt “Babyface” Pitcairn looks better on the fruit. Perhaps his best comments were saved for Lansdowne Centre general manager Jason Roberts and leasing manager Jeff Pockett, who he called “The Magician” and Oddjob (from Goldfinger fame), respectively. With $1,000 raised so far, Akimow is hopeful there will be a last minute push to reach the donation goal of $3,000. And, to the collective relief of women everywhere (Pittcairn said his wife has told him he’s ruined every photograph taken in November), Richmond Fire-Rescue will be hosting a “Movember Shave-Off ” where local barbers will relieve the moustachio’d of their facial creations at city hall on Nov. 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Akimow advised readers to stay tuned for Friday’s Richmond News for a “special” update picture.

Givers get best tax breaks
Towards the end of the year, we’re often searching desperately for tax breaks. We’ll even take on unreasonable investment risk, often to the point of probable loss of capital, simply to avoid paying more taxes. WEALTH It’s time for a more rational alternative, but it calls for some contrarian thinking on where some of the best investments are. We are surrounded by priceless wealth in the non-profit community organizations and religious institutions that affect our lives daily. Our homeless are sheltered and fed, the distressed are counselled, the sick are comforted, worshipers are welcomed, single parent families are supported, those with debilitating circumstances are enabled and the cause for a safe and sustainable environment is championed. We can all understand that the real wealth in these organizations is immeasurable. However, money is about as essential as oxygen in their continued operation. Because governments are unable to provide all of these services, there is tax relief in supporting non-profit organizations who do. I’m suggesting here that charitable giving is a great way to invest in your community and reduce your taxes along the way. Unlike RRSP contributions and other tax deductions, the tax relief from charitable contributions comes in the form of a tax credit. What this means is that, rather than reduce your taxable income, you will receive a credit
that reduces your total federal and provincial tax. The net result of this is that, regardless of what tax bracket you are in, you will receive a substantial tax refund to reward you for your generosity. If you are in the SMARTS lower 20.06 per cent or higher 43.7 per cent marginal tax brackets, you will effectively receive a 43.7 per cent refund on every dollar you donate. This assumes that you have already met the $200 minimum donation to qualify for this higher credit, that your taxable income is well over $11,354 and that you are donating no more than 75 per cent of your net income. Consider a person earning less than $37,013 who is in a 20.06 per cent marginal tax bracket. Every $1,000 contributed to an RRSP will generate a tax refund of $200.60. On the other hand, a charitable contribution will grant a tax credit that will return a $437 tax refund. Your earnings would need to exceed $132,406 before an RRSP contribution achieves the same tax reduction. The fact is that every one of us has an ability and responsibility to make a mark in this world, to leave a legacy. Making a generous charitable contribution to an organization that you care about is an extremely tax-effective way to lend a hand. The opinions expressed are those of Richard Vetter, BA, CFP, CLU, ChFC. Vetter is a certified financial planner and owner of WealthSmart Financial Group (www. wealthsmart.ca).

inners and Losers is a staged conversation between long-time friends Marcus Youssef and James Long. They sit at a table and play a game they’ve made up; naming people, places or things like Tom Cruise, microwave ovens, or their fathers— and debate whether these things are winners or losers. As they try to win the game, their debate becomes very candid and very personal. Marcus Youssef, one of Winners and Losers’ playwrights, answered our questions.

Who’s the better man? James Long & Marcus Youssef co-wrote and star in Winners & Losers, at Gateway Theatre in November. Photo: Simon Hayter
Q: What is Winners and Losers about? Marcus: It’s about how competition and class are part of everything we do, and how that affects our closest friendships, like it or not. Q: Why is including the characters’ economic backgrounds important? Marcus: Because we hardly ever talk about money in our personal lives, yet it’s the single most important social and political force in the world. How can we sort the current mess out if we can’t talk about money with our closest friends? But it’s hard to do. Q: Why should people come see this play? What makes it a winner? Marcus: It’s funny and it’s really honest. It doesn’t feel like fake, ordinary theatre. It’s about something. And we’re really, really, really good looking. Jamie in particular. And I don’t look a day over 29. Q: What do you hope audiences take away after seeing it? Marcus: I hope they’ve had a good time, and laughed a fair bit, and also witnessed something challenging and a bit scary. I also hope it makes them feel good—because it says something about how we try to live in the world.

Connaught Skating Club jumps to the top
For the first time since 2003 Richmond organization wins top team award at B.C./Yukon Sectional Championships BY MARK BOOTH
Five members of the Connaught Skating Club are heading to next week’s Skate Canada Challenge in Regina and leaving behind plenty of hardware. The Richmond-based organization is coming off an exceptional showing at the recent B.C./Yukon Sectional Championships in Parksville where enough podium finishes earned Connaught the Club Champion aggregate award for the first time since 2003. The trophy is presented to the club that accumulates the most points based on results throughout the competition. The outcome came down to the final event with Larkyn Austman capturing the Junior Women’s competition to lift Connaught past the North Shore Winter Club. Coquitlam and Burnaby were tied for third. The Champions award was pleasant surprise for Connaught’s coaching staff but not the results as the club’s competitive program continues to build impressive depth from top to bottom. “We did as well as we hoped we would,” said Keegan Murphy, Connaught’s Director of Programs. “As coaches, we sat down before the Sectionals and mapped out the expectations for each of our skaters. We are very happy with the overall results. “It’s wonderful to come away with so many medals but what is even more encouraging was seeing how well our up-and-coming skaters performed and the bright
future they have.” Other gold medalists at Sectionals included Mitchell Gordon (Senior Men’s) Shawn Cuveras (Junior Men) and Danielle Gordon (Pre-Novice Women). They will be joined by fourth place Novice Men’s finisher Kurtis Schreiber on Team B.C. that features 58 skaters going to the four-day Skate Canada Challenge that starts Dec. 5. Except for the Pre-Novice level, the competition serves as a qualification for Nationals to be held early in the new year. “We are expecting all four of are skaters to qualify for Nationals,” said Murphy. Mitchell Gordon continues to make progress in his first year competing at the senior men’s level. The 16-year-old reigning Junior Men’s national champion represented Canada this fall at Junior Grand Prix events in Austria and Croatia. He took the experience with him to Sectionals where he put together a solid free program that scored 135.25 to surge past North Shore’s Jeremy Ten for the gold medal.” “That was better than what we hoped so we were very pleased,” said Murphy of the first place performance. “Everything is about Mitchell peaking for Nationals so that was a bonus. The hope is to do well enough there to get an invite (to represent Canada) to Junior Worlds.” Elvie Carroll won’t be going to Regina but did manage a first place finish in the Sectionals’ Juvenile U14 Group One event.

Richmond’s Wickham recognized for fine season at Alabama school
Richmond Youth Soccer alumni Chase Wickham has been recognized for his outstanding season at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The junior midfielder was one of two Blazers named to the 2012 Conference USA Men’s Soccer Championship AllTournament Team. Wickham netted
a pair of first half goals to lead UAB past the No. 3 UFC Knights 3-1 in the opening round of the Conference USA Championship. The Blazers would go on to lose 1-0 in extra time to No. 2 Tulsa in the semi-finals — a result that was good enough to earn an at-large berth for the NCAA Championships.
Their season ended Nov. 16 with a 3-2 loss to Charlotte with Wickham drawing an assist on his team’s second goal. Earlier, he earned Conference USA Third Team honours after an impressive regular season campaign that saw him finish third in team scoring with 12 points and rank fourth in total minutes played,

Sports Impressive start for Pee Wee A1 Blues
Richmond Minor Pee Wee Blues celebrate their first place finish at the Gill Martin Memorial Tournament in Langley. The A1 rep hockey team now has a pair of tournament wins and has been promoted to the top flight of the PCAHA for the regular season.
The Richmond Blues Pee Wee A1 team hockey team has had a successful and impressive start to its season — achieving three of its goals already. The team started the season off on a strong note by capturing gold at the Abbotsford Pee Wee Ice Breaker Tournament. It was a important win for the Blues who are hoping to secure a spot in the Quebec Peewee International Tournament. The Abbotsford event was seen as part of the qualifying process for teams from BC wishing to make the cut for Quebec. On the heels of their win, the locals then finished in first place during the PCAHA’s placement round in group two, which secured them a berth in Flight One for the remainder of the season. The Gil Martin Memorial Tournament in Langley then saw the Blues go undefeated with six straight wins to clinch the championship 5-2, in a rematch of the 2011 final against Interior rival Kelowna. The Blues finished in first place after round robin play in a tournament that saw 12 teams competing for the championship. The Richmond team produced wins against Abbotsford, Vernon and Hollyburn. Competition got tighter in the playoffs and the Blues first obstacle to overcome was Coquitlam. They competed hard and dug deep for a 2-1 win, securing its spot in the semifinals, where they then faced off against previous round robin competitor — Abbotsford. A 4-3 victory moved the Blues onto the final against Kelowna. The Blues have a strong well rounded team, with every player on the roster having scored a goal so far this season. The team is characterized by creative offensive with excellent passing and team play, backed by rock solid goaltending and some of the best defence in the league. The team’s next goal? Securing a spot in the exclusive 53rd annual Quebec Pee Wee International Tournament in February.

The McMath Wildcats pulled out a thrilling fifth set victory to capture the Richmond Junior Girls Volleyball Championship. For the past two seasons, the Wildcats went unbeaten through regular season play and the city playoffs before being upset in the finals. It was a similar script this season as the girls enjoyed another perfect run in league play and reached the championship match to see the StevestonLondon Sharks for the second straight year. This time, they were determined it would be a different ending. It turned out to be a thrilling see-saw battle with the teams exchanging sets and leaving it until the fifth to determine the winner. Steveston-London jumped out to an 8-3 lead and looked to be in control. However, the Wildcats were focused and spirited, showing grit, skill and determination to rally back for a dramatic 15-13 victory. The closely-knit team of eight includes Georgina Magnus, Chelsea Simpkins, Sophia Koutsandreas, Fiona Uson, Natasia Rivera, Jessica Ryanne Bulteel, Stephanie Herrera, Sarah Street and Keeley Hol. The team was coached by Kori Hol and her Grade 11 assistants Nick Jaensson and Matt Young.
