Parents line up at 4 a.m. for summer school spots Desperate parents camped outside the Richmond School District office from 4 a.m. after a summer school registration website crashed. The parents were forced into the drastic measure Tuesday to enroll their children in free summer school, where a massive spike in demand is outstripping an already short supply of student spaces. By 9 a.m., a line-up of around 60 to 70 parents was snaking its way out of the district’s head office near the Granville Avenue and Minoru Boulevard intersection, even though in-person registrations

so much trouble every year? We tried twice and the system kept crashing, we couldn’t get into it at all.” Kao said he and his wife faced a similar scenario last year, when his wife stayed up to 5 a.m., just to register their child in summer school. Scott Robinson, Richmond’s assistant superintendent of schools, confirmed the district’s website registration had crashed and said the parents in the line-up were handed numbers so they didn’t have to wait around until 4:30 p.m. see District page 5

Feds to introduce strike-breaking law after Air Canada walkout

BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

Less than 24 hours after Air Canada customer service agents walked off the job, the federal government was getting ready to force them back to work. Lisa Raitt, the federal labour minister, was set to introduce a bill Tuesday (yesterday), but it would take at least 48 hours to enact, a spokesperson for the minister said. Raitt expressed her concerns over the impact a strike at the airline would have on the broader economy, and had urged the airline and its employees to come to a negotiated settlement “promptly.” Air Canada customer service agent, Peter Friesen, joined some 400 colleagues on the picket line Tuesday at YVR after weeks of negotiation with the country’s largest airline failed to avert a strike. Friesen said he was surprised at how swiftly the federal government stepped in to stop the strike. “It seems funny to be forced back to work that quickly,” said Friesen. “I honestly don’t know what to think about this … obvi-

ously, our economy must be pretty bad if Lisa Raitt wants to legislate us back to work so quickly.” According to Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) Local 2002 president Ken Lewenza, the strike comes after Air Canada refused to back down on its demand that the employees take a 40 per cent cut to their existing pension plan. “We’re extremely disappointed that 10 weeks of tough negotiations has not resulted in a new agreement that we can take back to our membership,” said Lewenza in a press release. Meanwhile, Friesen said morale is good and he expects to be out for a while. “We have been prepared for this for a long time and we are also prepared to go the long haul,” said Friesen, an employee of 32 years at Air Canada. “We don’t really have a choice because frankly we can’t back down on this issue … it’s too important.”

City bigwigs paid less but $100,000 plus earners up BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

The City of Richmond’s top brass are earning less than they did two years ago — but the number of civil servants in the middle management wage bracket has exploded. According to the 2010 financial statements released this week by the city, the amount of employees earning more than $100,000 has risen more than 50 per cent since 2008, from 62 workers to 94. With such an increase, it’s understandable that the same report shows the city’s total 2010 wage bill, before benefits and expenses, to be $96,509,969 — up almost 15 per cent from 2008. All these spikes are being recorded despite the city trimming back the number of employees

The total amount of expenses claimed was down fractionally from 2008, from $1,278,797 to $1,259,472.

BY CHAD SKELTON Postmedia News

Richmond parents are far less likely to hold their kids back a year before enrolling them in kindergarten than those in other parts of the province. According to government data obtained by The Vancouver Sun, at most Metro Vancouver school districts, only one or two per cent of children in kindergarten are age six. In southeast B.C., where holding kids back is most popular, the rate is five per cent. Waiting an extra year to put your child in kindergarten, a practice known as “redshirting,” is most common for children born late in the year, whom some parents believe may struggle if forced to enter kindergarten at age four. A growing body of evidence suggests late-birthday children fare worse academically than their older peers. B.C. parents can enroll their child in school the year they turn five but are not required to until the year they turn six. While the choice to wait is open to all British Columbians, government data shows it’s far more common in some districts than others. Kootenay Lake School District, near Nelson, has the highest share of six-year-olds in kindergarten, at 8.8 per cent, followed by Rocky Mountain (5.5 per cent) and Vernon (4.8 per cent). Richmond, with less than one per cent of kindergarten students age six, was lowest, with Burnaby and Surrey tied for second at just 1.1 per cent. Overall, the data shows a clear urban-rural split. The Top 10 districts for redshirting are all outside Metro Vancouver, primarily in 06157027

the Okanagan, Kootenays and Peace River region. In contrast, nine of the 10 districts with the lowest rates are in the Lower Mainland. School district officials interviewed by The Sun said they weren’t sure why some districts are higher than others. Jeff Jones, superintendent for Kootenay Lakes, said his district’s high rate of redshirting may be due to Nelson’s history of attracting those looking for a more laid-back lifestyle. “This part of British Columbia is attractive to many people who are making conscious choices to live differently than people in larger, more urban districts ... and they might choose to keep their kids home longer,” he said. Monica Pamer, superintendent in Richmond, said the numbers may reflect the high cost of living in the Lower Mainland, which means many parents don’t have the luxury of keeping kids home an extra year, even if they wanted to. “A lot of parents are working and they want their kids in kindergarten,” said Pamer. “Now that it’s all day, it’s very helpful to them.” Michelle Imbeau of Port Moody said she’s been wrestling with what to do with her son Tristan, who was born on Dec. 16, 2007 and is due to begin kindergarten next year. She worries that, as the smallest kid in class, he might get picked on. And that falling behind in kindergarten could set him back for future grades. “It’s the snowball effect ... It could be a constant struggle throughout the school system,” she said. “I had a brother who had an October birthday and it seemed like he struggled the whole time.”

District: Forced to add spaces

The district has reacted to the unexpected surge in demand by creating 90 more spots on the Social Studies 11 program and another 30 for the Richmond Virtual School Program, he added. “There seems to be big demand — especially for Social 11,” Robinson said. “We’re also having technical challenges, as we did last year as well. “Since the School Act was changed to make summer school free of charge two or three years ago, we kind of expected an increase in demand. But the difficulty is in predicting that demand from year to year.” The district is now trying to get a grip on numbers so it can deal with future community demands. “Apparently, for a reason we’re not sure of, there is a big demand this year for Social 11,”

Robinson said. “We’re going to try to track the demand to see if there’s a particular pattern. “As for this year, we had made improvements (to the website) and carried out test runs, and we’d hoped it would be better. “But we’re still having difficulties and that has been exacerbated by the big increase in demand.” Robinson said the 4:30 p.m. in-person registration slot is a courtesy to people who might not have Internet access and also to allow students to register by themselves without having to skip school. Both Robinson and Zao acknowledged that the massive demand for summer school spots could be peculiar to Richmond because of its high Chinese population. “I think this only happens in Richmond and Vancouver, where there is a high Chinese population,” Zao said. “Chinese parents want

if they’re also experiencing the same increases in the summer. “Richmond is typically at the top when it comes to the number of students graduating and people living here do place a very high value on education,” Robinson said. “And that’s evident in the number of summer school registrations.”

The trial of Richmond man accused of murder is the latest case to be suspended by a judge concerned about cutbacks in the sheriffs’ service. On Tuesday, there was no full-time sheriff available for the second-degree murder trial of Gurpal Singh Brar in B.C. Supreme Court. It was to have been the third trial for Brar, accused in the May 2006 fatal stabbing of Sukhjit Singh Johal at the Custom Cabinet manufacturing plant in Richmond. B.C. Supreme Court Madam Justice Sunni Stromberg-Stein said there was a “roving” sheriff for the entire seventh floor but no full-time sheriff. “In my view the court cannot sit today on this seconddegree murder trial,” she told the court. “In my view the very nature of this case requires a sheriff. The allegations involve violence in the workplace culminating in the death of one of the participants.” The judge noted that emotions may run high between two factions in the workplace and it was necessary to have a sheriff present at all times. “A roving sheriff is completely inadequate. It is unfortunate that so many will be inconvenienced by this delay and valuable court time lost.” The judge then adjourned the case until

10 a.m. Wednesday “in anticipation” that a sheriff might then be available. “If we’re faced with the same situation, I will feel compelled to do the same.” Brar’s lawyer, Richard Peck, told the judge that if the case were delayed again tomorrow, he would be seeking an adjournment of the trial. Crown counsel Karima Andani noted Brar’s first trial ended in a mistrial after a juror felt intimidated by a spectator sitting in the courtroom. The trial had been set for 13 days. The second trial of Brar resulted in a conviction but that conviction was overturned on appeal and a third trial ordered by the B.C. Court of Appeal. Prior to the slaying, Brar and Johal were involved in a dispute over car-pooling arrangements. The Crown alleges Brar used a knife to stab Johal to death. At trial, Brar denied he killed his co-worker. The suspension of the trial follows a meeting Monday between AttorneyGeneral Barry Penner and B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman and Provincial Court Chief Judge Thomas Crabtree to discuss the problem of trial delays arising from the cutback of 34 fulltime-equivalent sheriffs. Penner has indicated there is no money available for more sheriffs, citing the “fiscal challenges” facing the government in a time of a struggling global economy.

Make your point

Richmond updates its Official Community Plan and wants to hear from you. The proposed 2041 OCP Update Concept contains a vision, goals and objectives based on a vision of a more sustainable city that is more healthy, welcoming, diverse, safe, connected and adaptable with a thriving downtown core, distinct and connected neighbourhoods, protected agricultural lands, a healthy eco-system and prosperous businesses.

The City wants to know what you think your community should look like in the future. Come out during this third round of public consultation, taking place May and June, to see the latest of the City’s update to its current Official Community Plan, the “2041 OCP Update.” At this point a proposed 2041 OCP Update Concept is being presented. It is based on work completed over the past year and a half, as well as feedback the public has given in the last two rounds of public consultation. The two previous rounds of public open houses took place in November 2009 and October 2010. Your input from these sessions was important and was considered in developing the Concept.

The purpose of the 2041 OCP Update Concept is to present the draft vision, goals and objectives upon which the 2041 OCP Update can be prepared. The focus of the Open Houses will be to show the public and to obtain public comments on: • the 2041 OCP Update Concept • results of the second round of public feedback from the October 2010 OCP public consultation process about more planning for the densification of the eight shopping malls outside the City Centre and about possible coach houses and granny flats in certain neighbourhoods (Richmond Gardens, Edgemere, and Burkeville) • 2041 general land use principles

Coach houses and granny flat options Separate community consultations will be held in June 2011 in the Richmond Gardens, Edgemere, and Burkeville neighbourhoods to see if residents in these three areas want to consider coach houses and granny flat options. If you are a resident in one of these areas, you will be getting an information package in the mail. Ways you can make your point about the 2041 OCP Concept • participate in the online discussion forum at www.letsTALKrichmond.ca • attend one of the eight public open houses • complete a comment form about the proposed OCP Concept which will be available at the open houses or at www.letsTALKrichmond.ca

for me it doesn’t.” Coun. Evelina HalseyBrandt added that the whole process of contract negotiations needs to be more accountable to the “people that pay the bill.” Council agreed to communicate their concerns to UBCM and the solicitor general, with copies going out to Metro Vancouver cities with populations of more than 10,000. The city’s formal demands include no changes be made to policing practices or governance that impact future municipal costs unless the city approves the change; The committee employ a weighted voting system based on the size of the RCMP detachment and meet at least four times a year.

The City of Richmond is leading the way in demanding more control over the provincial RCMP contract. The city has been asked by the UBCM (Union of British Columbia Municipalities) to provide input before the forming of a new provincial/municipal RCMP contract committee. But staff warned city council last week that UBCM’s proposed committee presents a number of “challenges.” At the top of the list is the fact that the new committee would be nothing more than a “forum for consultation” and would not have any authority over future contract negotiations or changes. Staff also advised that there was unlikely to be adequate representation on the committee for the larger cities, such as Richmond, who have a greater financial interest in the contract. And the proposal for

the committee to meet just twice a year would, according to staff, make it very difficult for the committee to respond to challenges as the year progresses. “Since the taxpayers are the ones that pay for (the contract), there’s no point in having a committee that has no effect,” Coun. Bill McNulty told staff and fellow councillors. “I’m concerned about what we’re actually doing here.” While Coun. Derek Dang, who has been dealing with RCMP matters on and off for years as chair of the city’s community safety committee, said he felt let down by terms laid out for the proposed provincial/municipal committee. “I’ve been through the ritual of getting this with the RCMP, but nothing has really changed,” said Dang. “If anything, I think it highlights the shortfalls and I’m disappointed in that aspect of it. “(The report says) this meets our term goals?

Waiting for axe to fall

I

n some ways, last week’s federal budget might lessen the angst felt by some about a Conservative majority. Despite their new immunity to the opposition, the Tories went with more or less the same budget they proposed as a minority government. What changes they did make were laid out for the public during the election campaign. No surprises — not yet, anyway. Ending the deficit a year faster than planned seems like a good idea on its face, and it’s good news that provincial transfers won’t be part of those cutbacks. But it does leave one wondering where Treasury Board president Tony Clement will find $4 billion in annual savings. One of the largest national bills is for defence, which leaves this newspaper wondering yet again if now is the time to buy a fleet of shiny new strike aircraft. Then there’s public safety, but don’t expect any of the planned new prisons to be cancelled either. The arts are a perennial target for cuts, just as veterans’ affairs are for neglect. And of course the federal government could dial back spending on environmental safeguards, presuming they still spend any money on that now. It’s an idea commonly held by elected officials and easily sold to taxpayers: that significant savings can be found, as if by magic, by simply looking for them. But when cuts are made it means one of two things: that the Tories have run a flabby government for the past five years, or they’re slicing into the muscle. We’ll have to wait and see.

Ships to Shore a tall order The Editor, Re: “Ships to Shore branded a success,” News, June 8. In the article Alan Campbell wrote of the “success” of the Tall Ships in Steveston. He said the parking had improved over the last time we had the Tall Ships. To me, that fact seemed to be the main reason for saying that this time the Tall Ships was a success. I would appreciate if you would look into the following facts. 1. Their (from now on “their” will refer to the Tall Ships) visit cost us a lot of money, just when most of us are having serious financial concerns. 2. Other than the drinking establishments in Steveston, all the other shops had their sales cut at least by 50 per cent or more. The visitors who come to see the Tall Ships do not come to shop and they take up all the parking, so our regular customers do not come out. 3. Families who have regularly enjoyed coming to the beaches at Garry Point and use the drift logs and wooden drift planks for imaginative building of forts, windbreaks and settings for picnics no longer have that left. The beaches have been completely cleared of all natural drift wood. This will be sorely missed. What we do have left are ugly big pylons. I can substantiate all of the above. Really, was it all worth it? It appears the our city council decided to bring the Tall Ships without any consideration of what it would do to the Steveston merchants or to the wonderful natural playground of Garry Point. Shame on them for not doing their homework before spending our money. Maxine Barclay Richmond

Don’t bet on Clark’s tax plan yet

Politicians are rightly doubted when it comes to tax promises, so it’s understandable why there is considerable skepticism over the B.C. Liberal government’s promise to cut the HST to 10 per cent by 2014. After all, our political landscape is littered with all kinds of broken promises over taxation. So why should Premier Christy Clark’s government be any different than its predecessors? After all, financial and political considerations end up shaping our tax policies, no matter who is running government. And circumstances can change so quickly that they can have an immediate impact on taxes, since that is a government’s main source of revenues. This is how we ended up with the HST. The worldwide economic recession blew a huge hole in the B.C. government’s revenues almost overnight, and so when Ottawa came calling with a $1.6-billion “incentive” to implement the HST, the Campbell government lunged at the cash. Clark’s proposed twopoint cut in the HST will cost her government about $1.6 billion in lost revenue when it is implemented in 2014. That will be somewhat offset by more than $600 million in corporate tax hikes or deferred tax reductions for small businesses. But it still works out to about a $1 billion hit, effectively wiping out a projected budget surplus in 2014. On the other side of the ledger, her government is

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

insisting it can keep spending increases to less than two per cent a year. Oh really? In the four years before the 2008 recession, the annual spending increase in the government budget was 5.7 per cent. In the two years since then, spending increased an average of 3.5 per cent annually, but this was after all kinds of cuts to programs and services. So to get spending down even further will presumably require more cuts. When one factors in the insatiable health-care system – which gobbles money at a rate of almost five per cent more each year – the challenge to stick to budget projections becomes even tougher. It seems that a cut of one point next July seems do-able but a further cut of another point in 2014 seems wishful thinking at best. NDP leader Adrian Dix is perfectly correct to be dubious about the tax cuts actually occurring. But skepticism aside, it is certainly true governments of all political stripes have monkeyed with the sales tax over the years, so one can’t simply rule out the Clark government doing the same. In fact, if she really does follow through with that 2014 rate cut, that will mark the 12th time since the tax

was introduced in 1948 that a government has changed the rate (which started out at just three per cent). So perhaps Clark will surprise the skeptics and follow through on her promise. Goodness knows politicians can spring surprises when it comes to taxes. The HST is a perfect example of that. However, in B.C. political history there is another great example of a tax surprise, and it’s one that is not just incredibly rich in irony but also parallels the introduction of the HST. Back in 1987, the Social Credit government brought in the property transfer tax, which adds almost $10,000 to a house that costs a little more than $525,000 (a tax hit, by the way, that dwarfs the financial impact most people will experience with the HST). The tax has become lucrative to governments – it provides more than $800 million a year – but is hurtful to homebuyers, and makes already expensive homes even costlier. Here’s the parallel to the HST: the tax was introduced just after the 1986 election campaign, during which the Socreds never breathed a word of the hit they were about to unleash on homebuyers. And here’s the irony: the premier who brought in the property transfer tax was none other than Bill Vander Zalm, who is leading the Fight HST group. You can’t make this stuff up! Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.


The Richmond News June 15, 2011 A11

The Editor, Re, “Ms. Wong, act on promise,” Letters, June 8. In his letter, Alan Rempel lays down what he feels Alice Wong, M.P. is honour bound to do, I should like to point out that he is being incredibly naive. Politics in Canada just don’t work like that, regardless of which party is involved. Dale Jackaman or Joe Peschisolido will confirm that for him. Members of the government party, particularly junior cabinet ministers, are inviting banishment to oblivion if they vote against their own party. In the case of Alice Wong, this would mean the loss of her minister’s salary plus any chance of ever being nominated to run as a Conservative again. In other words, political suicide. Mr. Rempel is missing an important point regarding the government’s plan to do away with the legislation (brought in by Liberal Paul Martin just a few years ago) for campaign funding based on the number of votes received. Mr. Harper was quite clear during the campaign he intended to do this, and yet the majority of voters in Richmond were still happy voting for his party. In a democracy this is an example of the majority ruling and the opposition parties having to swallow their gall and try harder the next time to get out the non-voting 49.4 per cent of electors. N. J. Wilson Richmond

Polluting Age needs to end The Editor, Re: “This is the ‘Age of Pollution,’” Letters, June 1. Very interesting how John McCrossan interprets the Age we are in now as “The Age of Pollution!” And I, like many others, will agree with him on this. As it stands, then, is we, the human race, is being destroyed by the pollution in the air that we breathe, right? This is perfectly understandable when we consider what we have released into the environment by burning and spraying. Even out of our clothes dryers fumes are emanating that are loaded with lab created chemical perfumy scents which are not entirely safe. Women and children are the main targets as they are the ones who are mostly in very close contact with these scented laundry and household-cleaning products. Looking back, each century and each decade brought us more convenience and technology which was to make life easier and more fun filled, but this “Age of Pollution” seems to be overflowing with unhealthy situations and it will definitely be a sad untimely ending for many people if we do not smarten up and stop this polluting trend that we have become accustomed to. We have been a part of the problem and now we must be a part of the solution. We can stop polluting the air and poisoning ourselves and others by putting an end to burning wood and other garbage. We can stop smoking tobacco and other substances; we can use more environmentally friendly cleaning products and most of all: we can wholeheartedly get back in contact with nature, give it the attention and respect it deserves. This alone will sustain us if nothing else will. We do owe this to ourselves and to our children. Perhaps then “The Age of Pollution” will have a turnabout. Brie Oishi Port Coquitlam

The Editor, Re: “Fix is in, democracy loses,” Letters, May 13. In a recent letter, Ryan Lake confessed that he did not/could not vote in the last election. He gave many reasons but mainly because with our current system, his vote was wasted. Yesterday, the federal minister of finance took away what was my last rea-

son to vote. He is removing the support for a federal political party based on the number of votes they received. A payment that was originally intended to reduce the influence of the large corporations by large donations that then perverted parliament into representing corporate interests rather than those of the people. Now we go backward, at least federally. We are poised to try to reduce the influence of donors in municipal politics in 2012 by reducing the ability to donors to influence municipal councils through their large donations to specific persons and parties. Federally, even the semblance of voting to support a party that will not win but

who might benefit from my vote, is going and will be gone soon. Why elected officials cannot see that, like reforms being considered in the U.K., proportional representation is needed to re-engage the electorate. More support for each and every vote contributing to the welfare of parties and ultimately government. Harper’s government reduces even a monetarily paltry inducement to vote. Can they then seriously wonder at voter apathy or do they smirk behind their hands that once again they will have power without responsibility to other than their donors and corporate interests? Richard Mathias Richmond

The HST needs to go The Editor, Here are several reasons to extinguish the HST and tell the Liberal government to go back to the drawing board. They lied when they said it was to be revenue neutral. Even with a rough calculation, using a very round number of tax payers in B.C. times the average tax increase they were saying, we have showed that there would be a larger amount of money collected — now revealed as $800 million per year. With HST, the rules followed are quite weird in several cases. Such as: Why do you pay tax on a deli chicken but not on deli ham or on candied fruit, which and only be used in baking Christmas cakes; But not on raisins, which can be used as snack food (other dried fruit such as mango and apples are taxed). If, as the government claimed, business and industry would be passing at least some of the savings through to their customers, then the largest group benefiting from the shift of tax to the general population would be in the U.S. and China. I collected receipts from April to September in 2010 and calculated the difference in tax paid less the rebate I get a pensioner. The sales tax I paid as a percentage of all money spent on food, goods and services over the last three months of GST/PST was 7.39 per cent while the first three months of HST was 8.78 per cent so the actual amount of tax was 18 per cent higher. My rebate covered just over half of it so my tax increase was nine per cent. Lastly, if you check the much vaunted rebate in your H\ hydro bill, you’ll find it’s a bit short. Can anyone tell me why the government keeps 26 cents of the tax on each bill? Laura Reston Richmond

The Editor, Re: “City’s spending maddening,” Letters, June 10. I was also maddened to read about the allocation of the $500,000 from the 2010 surplus. I have read over the entire list. Many of the items and associated costs are questionable. I am shocked that only one item was cut. I would

like to see the entire list re-prioritized with more detailed descriptions. From what I am seeing right now, more items need to be cut to help with the tax burden on Richmond residents. I also agree with Mr. Wong’s comment, it is rather humorous that the only item that will increase revenue was cut! Clarke Carry Concerned taxpayer

DANCE

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Morri-Lynn Buchanan (centre) and her daughters Fiona Buchanan (left) and Malana Murray are awardwinning dancers, each excelling in her genre as well as taking first as a trio in a regional dance competition for their piece, Send in the Clowns.

Family dances its way to Cup Mom-daughters trio find strength in movement BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

Long before Fox Television brought us Glee and before the television series So You Think You Can Dance Canada hit the airways in 2008, Richmond’s MorriLynn Buchanan has been competing and winning international dance competitions across the country. And later this month, Buchanan and her daughters Fiona Buchanan and Malana Murray, will bust their moves on the stage in the Dance World Cup, being held in

Ontario. “There are the best dancers from all over the world competing and we are representing both Canada and Richmond,” said Buchanan. The trio, longtime dancer and dance teacher Morri-Lynn Buchanan and Fiona, 24, and sister Malana, 25, have been competing together for a few years now. During the regional competition, they danced Send in the Clowns, scoring a perfect 100 per cent from one of the judges, walking away with first place. see Family page 14

Family: Has collection of medals for dance genres Continued from page 13 Dance is as much a part of this family’s routine as eating. Buchanan’s daughters both say they were spoon fed dance from the minute they could walk. Although they compete as a team all three also vie in solos. Murray’s forte is jazz, whereas her sister Fiona’s specialty is tap and mom is contemporary and ballet. “We all perform every genre of dance but we excel in our specialties,” said Fiona Buchanan, who recently graduated from the University of B.C. with a bachelor of arts degree. Meanwhile, Send in the Clowns has

been their strength and it is the number that garnered them a spot in the upcoming prestigious dance competition. “This piece has evolved over the years,” said Buchanan. “I first performed this as a solo when I was 17 and made it into a family dance a few years ago. “Fiona sings while Malana and I dance.” This isn’t the first time the trio has qualified for the international competition. “Last year’s Dance World Cup was held at the River Rock and we came home with a gold and a silver medal,” said Buchanan. “The year before it was in Montréal and we came home with two golds, a silver and a bronze medal.”

This year, the family hopes to bring home gold in all categories they are competing in. “To be part of this world class competition means a chance to meet dancers from other countries and to work with them and learn about their dance routines,” said Murray. “It’s so much more than just the competition.” Dancing is a life passion for Buchanan. She discovered dance at 17 and was instantly hooked. Buchanan passed on her love of movement to her daughters, who like their mother, are as dedicated to the art form as Buchanan is. She has been teaching dance to all regardless of ability, age or body type for more than 35 years at her studio, Aer-Elite Dance Studio. In 2010, Buchanan won the 2010 Richmond Arts Awards for artistic innovation for her choreographed dance, Missing Pieces, which raises awareness about autism. The dance first received attention after her group, Aer-Elite, performed it at the 5678 Showtime competition in Bellevue, Washington, to rave reviews and to a first place finish. After winning first place at the 5678 Showtime, her group was invited to per-

form the work in Montreal at the Dance World Cup where it received a standing ovation. Since then, the piece has been performed many times in the Lower Mainland for teachers, students and the general public. The road to Dance World Cup was paved by beating out some stiff competition at regional, held in Whistler in May, said all three. “There were more than 200 dancers at regional this year and dancers win based on their scores,” said Buchanan. “We beat out seven different teams with Send in the Clowns.” When asked what countries will give them their stiffest competition, Fiona Buchanan said: “For ballet it’s China, Japan and Germany and tap is the United States.” Buchanan and her daughters, along with new dancer and Malana’s fiancée, Chris Hunter, will head to Niagara Falls, Ontario to compete in seven different numbers at the Dance World Cup from June 29 to July 2. This annual international dance competition is Canada’s first and only worldwide dance competition and convention sanctioned by UNESCO, (www.cid-unesco.org).

You talk to me while taking me to school; You teach me the monkey bars; You hug and kiss me when u are back from work; You take me out during the weekends and get me what I want; You teach me to love my brother Dad, if mummy is god’s blessing, you are God’s greatest gift to me. Wishing you a day as bright as your smile and warm as your heart. We love you Daddy. Happy Father’s Day,’ from Kaushik and Kailash about their dad, Venkat.

‘Any man can be a father, but it takes someone really special to be a daddy. I love my daddy so very much! Xoxo.’ From Kaitlyn Long about her daddy Wayne Long.

at

‘My Dad taught me to go after my passions and to dream big, and to always do my best, that good enough was only going to give me mediocre results. We have had so much FUN over the years-we still do-we laugh till our heads fall off! My Dad has always been there for me, and, over the years, this “muscle” photo has become somewhat ironic because when I got older, he dropped his plethora of commitments as a sculptor to help me build, under a very tight deadline, my own passionate dream, Shinka Martial Arts. Happy Father’s Day, most awesomest Dad!’ From Ono Northey on his dad, artist/sculptor, Lawrence Northey.

Roadrunners make rapid rise to the top Second-year franchise finds itself tied for top spot in B.C. Intermediate “A” League BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

The Richmond Roadrunners have wasted little time in becoming a contender in the B.C. Intermediate “A” Lacrosse League. On the heels of an expansion season that produced five wins in 24 games, the Roadrunners have coming flying out of the gate with an impressive 9-2 record — good enough for a share of first place in the league standings. A recent showdown with the Delta Islanders (9-4), more than lived up to the billing as the Roadrunners rallied in the third period to take the lead, only to surrender a late tying goal, then watch Eli McLaughlin notch the game winner in the opening minute of overtime. Ironically, McLaughlin was selected two years ago by current Roadrunners associate coach Greg Rennie in the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League midget draft. Rennie earned coach-of-the-year honours in leading the Junior “A” Islanders to their best-ever season in 2010 but opted not to return in the coach/general manager duo role. Looking for a fresh start elsewhere, he was convinced by

Roadrunners president/governor Terry Wolfe to join head coach Matt Miyashita behind the bench and also serve as the team’s director of player personnel. Rennie has been in charge of the Roadrunners’ attack and is also doing his part to help recruit talent. The club’s latest signings are White Rock twins Griffen and Reid Leclaire who are currently attending Hill Academy — an Ontario private school noted for its field lacrosse program. They will join the Roadrunners in early July. “It’s gone even better than I expected,” said Rennie of his move Richmond. “I can’t say enough good things about Terry and the work he and his volunteers are doing. Everything is first class with this organization. “To be honest, I wasn’t sure how much coaching I was going to be able to do but they look after all the little things, to the point where I only have to worry about lacrosse.” The core of the Roadrunners’ team has played together for some time, winning the provincial Bantam A2 championship three years ago. The attack is led by Jakob Doucet (27-24), Tyler Nett (23-19) and Andy Taylor (20-14), while Vancouver’s Ryan Vogrig (7-

Xander McDonald has been terrific in net and is among the league leaders in goals against (6.37) and save percentage (82.91). The Vancouver native has also

made an impression at the junior “A” level, turning aside 38 shots for the Burnaby Lakers in a 10-8 win over Langley last week. “I thought I got more and more into the game as it went on,” said MacDonald. “As soon as it got tight, I thought I began to play

better.” The Roadrunners are aiming for a two top finish which would clinch a berth into the provincial championships. They host the Victoria Shamrocks (8-6) on Sunday afternoon. Game time is 12:30 p.m. at Minoru Arena.

Zone Bowling Centre puts $3,000 into its youth scholarship program

The Zone Bowling Centre at Riverport is pleased to announce a donation of $3,000 for its in house Youth Bowling Scholarship Program. Since 2007, the Zone Bowling Centre has supported post-secondary education through this program. “We wanted to create a way for youth in our community to come out, have fun,

meet new people and learn a new skill,” explained the Zone’s Liesa Billings. “We thank all of our youth for making this another successful year.” Scholarships are obtained through the bowler’s attendance, attitude, improvement and a year end tournament which is free for all Zone youth bowlers to participate. The objective is to help prepare juniors finan-

cially with a scholarship program in which participants earn funds to use towards their future endeavors. The top finishers in the Red and Blue Divisions were as follows: Red Division — Davey Purewal Maclaclan ($223), Joshua Enns ($191), Mike Zhang ($188), Lauren McAuley ($183).

Blue Division — Jack Zhang ($263), Agnon Wong ($240), Calvin Chiu ($151), Teddy Shih ($145). The Zone Bowling Centre looks forward to seeing both current bowlers and new recruits for the 2011-2012 season where every junior bowler is a winner!
