Family survives mini tsunami Dad clung onto daughter for life after swell engulfed them at Garry Point shore BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

A dad and his two-year-old daughter believe they’re lucky to be alive after a mini tsunami-style wave almost sucked them out to sea. One moment, Stuart Sequeira was on shore fishing in the fading Saturday sunshine around 6:45 p.m. at the sheltered inlet behind the new Garry Point dock in Steveston with his daughter, Chloe, and his father, Mike. The next moment, both adults looked up to the surprising sight of a large container ship, carrying cars, sweeping past them at what they thought was only 50 yards or so out from the floating dock. Within just a few terrifying seconds, Sequeira and his father watched as the sea was sucked out from the shoreline, exposing a 15 foot-drop in depth to sea grass and rocks. Before he could even finish warning his $

father about what might happen next, a “rushing swell” of water cascaded towards them, forcing Sequeira to make a life-saving grab for his little girl, who was happily munching away on a snack and sitting on a camping chair five feet from where the water’s edge used to be. “The swell went straight up towards us and I scrambled to lift my daughter up,” Sequeira told the News, recalling the harrowing moment. “Before we knew it, the water was waist deep, all our belongings were floating and all the drift logs in the area were afloat. “I struggled, really struggled, to stay upright, holding my daughter in one of those fold-up camping chairs. And just as I had gained some balance, the swell withdrew.” But that wasn’t the end of the drama for the family because the powerful surge that initially engulfed them was about to rush out as fast as it had advanced on the previously

tranquil beach. “I braced as much as I could, but the logs on the beach were huge and I was pushed forward, ending up in the water up to my neck,” Sequeira said. “My daughter fell forward out of her chair and I scrambled to hold on to her as the water retreated with a ton of force. “I don’t know how I held on ... the logs were so heavy, so much pressure. I used all my strength to stay upright.” But hold on he did. And after the water receded, a stunned Sequeira carried his equally shell-shocked daughter to the safety of higher ground, before looking back out to wonder just what the hell had happened. “(Chloe) was certainly in shock as she went fully under. She had that million miles away stare.” Sequeira said. “Half of my tackle box contents were gone see Warning page 4

The consortium of airlines behind the bid to run a 15-kilometre jet fuel pipeline through Richmond is now looking at “alternatives” to the controversial plan. The Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation (VAFFC) has written to the City of Richmond indicating that it will conduct in-depth studies into three other options: ! An upgrade of the existing pipeline from Burnaby; ! An offshore Sea Island terminal; ! Fraser River north arm barge facility. The current plan is to barge the fuel up the south arm of the Fraser to a new off-loading terminal in south-east Richmond and then pipe it via the city to YVR. That application was being looked at by the BC Environmental Assessment Office (BCEAO) until its review was suspended on request of the VAFFC, so it could consider running the pipe up Highway 99, as opposed to through residential Richmond. The consortium has told the BCEAO that it expects to file reports on the alternatives by the end of November. However, city council — which has no say on the matter — passed a resolution Monday night which included: opposition of transportation of jet fuel on any arm of the Fraser; asking its staff to report on the possibility of a pipeline from Cherry Point refinery in Washington state; looking into fuel conservation at YVR and finding out which airlines are in the consortium. so the city can write them personally, stating their opposition. 09143553

Richmond was a movin’ an’ a shakin’ all around BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Buildings swayed and a swimming pool shipped water — Richmond sure felt the effect of the 6.4 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Vancouver Island. The quake, centred about 80 kilometres south of Port Alice at 12:42 p.m. on Friday, was felt across the Lower Mainland, including Richmond. Les Carlos was working at his computer on the 12th floor of the Paloma 1 building, just south of

the Westminster Highway and No. 3 Road intersection when he suddenly felt dizzy. Little did he know that his building was swaying to the beat of the Vancouver Island earthquake — the most severe since 2004. “I felt kind of weird and then I looked up and noticed the Venetian blinds and the plants were swaying,” Carlos said. “Then I heard cracking inside the walls and realized it must be an earthquake.” Carlos said he was too shocked to do much else, but said he didn’t

want to venture from his apartment in case he’d be in more danger on the stairwell. “I was more stunned than scared, I really wasn’t sure what to do,” he added. “I think it went on for about a minute, it was very weird. My sister lives close by, but she didn’t feel a thing.” Other reports indicated that a family swimming pool in Richmond had shipped up to four inches of water due to the swaying caused by the quake.

Police investigate string of suspicious fires Richmond RCMP is investigating four suspicious fires in apartment buildings that have rendered several families homeless. The fires started at different locations throughout Richmond, but are believed to be connected. On Aug 21, a fire was set in the

9500 block of Odlin Road and on Sept. 2 there was another fire in the 6100 block of Buswell Street. The fires displaced many residents of the apartment buildings involved, but fortunately no one was injured. Both fires began at the front door of the

suites in the hallways where gasoline was used as an accelerant. On Sept. 6, another fire was reported at the Palm Springs Health Spa in the 6500 block of Buswell Street. In this case an accelerant was sprayed into the business through the mail slot. And on

Sept. 7, there was a fire in the 8100 block of Granville Avenue. Again, the fire started outside the door of the suite in the hallway and gasoline was used. Richmond RCMP’s arson task force is asking anyone with information to call 604278-1212.

The West Coast Tsunami Warning Centre said that some coastal areas from Alaska to California may experience “nondamaging sea level changes” but in areas that experienced “strong ground-shaking, local tsunamis are possible due to underwater landslides.”

No support from murder accused’s father Tragedy ‘shocked’ family BY SAM COOPER Postmedia News

After a 35-year-old man charged with murdering his estranged wife made his first appearance in court Monday, his father told how he believes in the justice of the law and will let it take its course. Lancy Hu, a 27-year-old mother with two young children, disappeared from her Burnaby home on July 15. The trail seemed to go cold this summer, and Hu’s parents travelled from China to make a tearful public plea that she be returned safely. On Sunday, police reported that her body was discovered in a suitcase by two boaters in the Fraser River near Steveston on Aug. 27, just two days after her parents pleaded for her return. The victim’s husband, Zhongming “James” Mou, displayed no emotion while standing in the prisoner’s dock in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court Monday, wearing blue jeans and a Tshirt. Mou is charged with committing first-degree murder on or about July 16 in Coquitlam, where the separated couple owned a home. Reached at his home in Richmond, the accused’s father, Huaichuan Mou didn’t offer any words of support for his son. “We are shocked, we are astounded to see such a tragedy,” he said. Huaichuan Mou indicated he and his wife will raise the two children. “They lost their mother and now they’ve lost their father,” Huaichuan Mou said. The burden of life, the torture of life is too grievous for us. But as a man I have to face up to the difficulty and make everything better for the grandchildren.” Hu’s children have been in the care of Mou’s parents since July 15.

Warning: Signs needed

Continued from page 1 — drawn out with the retreating water — the rest of our stuff was all over the beach and under logs that had lifted high at the shoreline. “We lost all our electronics — camera, phones, everything had been fully submerged or filled with sand from the surge.” In the moments after the incident, Sequiera and his father tried to piece together what had caused such a powerful and unexpected wall of water. They recounted how they were amazed to see the ship — which was sailing west out of the Fraser River’s south arm — heading on such a direct course with Garry Point. “Having grown up in Richmond, I’ve seen these ships a million times, but this time was different — the ship was close,” Sequeira said. “The water at the beach withdrew as the ship’s displacement (of the water) took effect.” Sequeira said his dad has now written to Port Metro Vancouver, which is responsible for ship traffic on the river. “We need to know if the ship was off course, because it was actually making a large arc turn and we saw it head back out in to deeper water,” he said. Freight is carried up and down the river estuary under the authority of Port Metro Vancouver (PMV). PMV’s harbour master, Yofs Leclerc, said Monday he’d yet to receive any information, but added that the piloting of such vessels is controlled by the Pacific Pilotage Authority (PPA). The PPA’s director of marine operations, Brian Young, said he had been made aware of

the incident and is investigating what path the ship in question took. Young added that he’ll consider inspecting the area on the shore with the Transportation Safety Board (TSB) to ascertain if there’s an ongoing public safety issue. However, he said that it’s not uncommon for a large vessel passing through a narrow channel to create a hydro-dynamic effect which, in turn, can cause water to recede from the shoreline. “These large ships have to stay within the designated channel, or they risk running aground,” Young said, doubting that the ship on Saturday came as close to the dock as 50 yards away. “It might be more of a perception that it’s closer, especially for one of the big car carriers.” The actual course taken by ships entering or leaving the Fraser estuary can vary, Young said, depending on the flow of the river. Young was concerned, however, about the lack of signage on the shore alerting people to the possibility of the waterline receding and surging. Sequeira, not surprisingly, agreed. “The beach needs signage. People need to be aware of this danger and someone at the port authority or other governing agency needs to check the speed, size, and course of these large vessels that are in such close proximity to a popular family beach area,” he said. Meanwhile, Sequeira shudders to think what might have happened had little Chloe been any further than arm’s reach away from him. “The logs would have crushed her, and she would have been swept away,” he said. “We’re fortunate there were no other kids on the beach at the time.”

HUMAN RIGHTS

News PHOTO SUBMITTED BY ZOE, JACOB LEE

Former firefighter case tossed BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

A former firefighter had her claims of discrimination by the City of Richmond thrown out last week by the BC Human Right Tribunal — again. Teresa Rush has twice tried to drag the city through the human rights court in the last few years. In her latest bid, Rush — who lost her job in June, 2010, after being on paid and unpaid leave for three years due to being diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) — accused the city and the local firefighters union of discrimination on grounds of her race (she is of Aboriginal descent), ancestry, mental disability and sex. In her complaint, Rush claimed the city handled her employment situation differently because she is First Nations, a woman, and has a mental disability. Rush also claimed it was discriminatory to try and find her a job outside of the fire department and that not enough options were considered. She further claimed the union did not represent her well and encouraged her to take a new job well below her qualification level. The city and the union denied they discriminated. The human rights tribunal dismissed Rush’s complaint, saying there was insufficient evidence to back up her claims. The city refused to comment on the latest decision, citing personal privacy rules. One of the issues in Rush’s complaint centred on the job being offered to her by the city when she was finally deemed fit to return to work. According to tribunal documents, the city acknowledged her disability (PTSD) would prevent her from returning to a position with the fire department. And based on advice from two psychologists and a family doctor, the city offered to place Rush in a new position, outside of the fire department. She rejected two offers, including

“building services officer,” or a janitor. Rush complained the janitor offer suggested Aboriginal women with psychological conditions are only fit to do menial jobs. She also stated her Aboriginal descent made her an “easy target.” Rush was off work for a year before the city filled her firefighter position in late 2008. In her ruling issued last week, tribunal member Diana Juricevic dismissed the complaint against the city and the union. Juricevic wrote that the search for a job outside the fire department was in line with the advice of medical professionals and there would be “no reasonable prospect” of showing the city ignored important issues, such as the cost of finding a new job and what positions were available. “Considering all of the circumstances, there is no reasonable prospect that the city’s decision to terminate Ms. Rush’s employment after her second refusal to accept a reasonable accommodation offer was discriminatory,” Juricevic wrote. Juricevic further wrote, “there is no reasonable prospect of showing” that the firefighters union “did not fulfill its duty to represent her [Rush] during the accommodation process”. Rush has a long history of conflict with the city’s fire department, where she said women were often considered outsiders and, in her opinion, were singled out for poor treatment by colleagues. Rush wasn’t the only female firefighter to claim she was harassed and discriminated against at Richmond Fire-Rescue. She is one of four who alleged harassment by their male counterparts between 1997 and the early 2000s, after their unit, previously based at Vancouver International Airport, was amalgamated with the heretofore all-male Richmond Fire-Rescue. One of the firefighters, Jeanette Moznik, tried to sue the city, but the B.C. Supreme Court rejected her suit, saying her claims were a matter for her union. One other female firefighter simply quit, and one committed suicide.

Richmond First claims ‘common sense’ BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

All three Richmond First incumbent city councillors will be standing in November’s municipal election. Derek Dang, Ken Johnston, and Bill McNulty will be running on a plan to return “common sense to Richmond city council. “There are serious issues facing Richmond today and I’m pleased our team is standing for re-election to deal with these challenges using the common sense approach we bring to the table,” said veteran councillor McNulty. “With Richmond at a crossroads, the

strength and experience of our team to stand up and tackle the big issues are now more important than ever.” Dang, who’s served on council since 1996, said he’s been “standing up for important social programs within the city,” “At the top of my agenda is ensuring we maintain a strong public safety record and that our first responders are strongly supported to keep our community protected,” added Dang. Johnston, meanwhile, will highlight the fact that he spearheaded a bylaw allowing Richmond to strike a blow against puppy mills by becoming the first municipality in Canada to ban puppy sales in pet stores.

Security, not safety, boosted

I

n the days after the Twin Towers fell 10 years ago, there was an eerie hush. No planes interrupted the stillness and shock of that suddenly quiet sky. In the 10 years since, it’s been a different story. At times the sound and fury that followed Sept. 11, 2001 has been deafening. Two wars have been fought, neither of which definitively solved the terrorist threat that supposedly started them. Far more people have died in the aftermath of 9/11 than perished in the attacks themselves. With the perspective of 10 years, it’s debatable if the rhetoric of the “War on Terror” has done much to improve our lives. It was disappointing then to hear Stephen Harper recently trot out the Islamic boogeyman as the biggest threat to the nation. Recent events in Norway showed terror comes in many forms, many of them unpredictable and random. Those who have risen and overthrown tyrants in the Arab spring this year have also been Muslims, fighting for many of the same freedoms we enjoy. Much has changed in the past 10 years, but the ghost of 9/11 still haunts us. Are we safer now or just more scared? We’re different than we were, less trusting. The Fortress North America that’s defined our security overkill now invades our most innocuous dealings. Ten years on, it’s important to remember how we were and still strive to get back those qualities we lost in our rush to make our world safer.

Join me in the Garden City The Editor, This is an open invitation for an eco-tour of the Garden City Lands on Saturday, it is free. As a community service, I am writing so that all citizens will share an informative experience and get answers to their questions about this special place. All seekers of insight are welcome. You don’t have to share my commitment to stewardship of Richmond’s nature, but be prepared to meet a few new species! I want community wellness for all Richmond citizens and our visitors, but I give special importance to people of the City Centre Area, who are so short of green space. The lands are in B.C’s Agricultural Land Reserve, which has precedence over Metro Vancouver’s “Conservation and Recreation” label for them, but the three kinds of use go well together. The tour will show that, although the discussion will depend on the group’s questions and comments. On every tour, I learn something new from the lands and from the interested people who show up. It is always a pleasant and healthy use of 90 minutes. Rain or shine, it starts at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 17. The meet-up place is the Garden City Road entrance to the lands, 100 metres South of Lansdowne Road. Michael Wolfe Eco-tours coordinator, Garden City Lands Coalition

$500 million away from balanced books After almost getting itself above water on the fiscal front, the B.C. Liberal government now finds itself again mired in a financial quagmire. This year’s budget has ballooned to almost $3 billion, and the government’s plan to balance the books by 2013 require finding an additional $500 million. Finding that kind of money isn’t going to be easy. There is little sign revenues flowing to government are going to increase any time soon, as a faltering U.S. economy and a European debt crisis threaten to smother significant economic growth for at least a year, if not longer. So the question becomes: Do the B.C. Liberals raise taxes or cut program spending in order to balance the books? Either option is fraught with political peril, but I suspect cutting government-funded services and programs is a more dangerous path to follow for Premier Christy Clark as she steers her government towards the next election. Her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, had used up all his political capital by the time he left office largely because he had become associated with the reduction or elimination of all kinds of things so many people had come to rely on in their daily lives. The HST debacle simply sealed the deal. It was piled on a stack of negatives that was becoming higher and higher all the

time. The B.C. Liberals love to brag about cutting everyone’s income taxes. While it’s true most people over the years received significant decreases in their income taxes, those same folks found themselves digging into their pocketbooks more and more to pay for all kinds of other government services (the latest being the big increase in medical service premiums). Campbell and his government also became unpopular because of such decisions as reducing gaming grant payouts, which inflicted enormous political pain for relatively small fiscal gain. If Clark follows the same path, her personal popularity will begin to erode, a dangerous development for someone facing the electorate in 20 months. Her government will no doubt freeze or reduce some spending in some areas, and it can do so without absorbing too much political damage. It can also likely stare down public sector unions that want significant wage increases. But a truly balanced budget by 2013 will likely include a boost in revenue, which brings us to the sensitive area of raising taxes. Now, raising income

taxes seems like a nonstarter to me. Even a potentially popular “soak the rich” philosophy doesn’t raise enough money because B.C. doesn’t have enough millionaires. Increasing user fees at every turn also seems politically dangerous. But what about raising corporate taxes? Such a suggestion would have been greeted with horror by the corporate-friendly Campbell administration, but Clark is trying to show she is significantly different than her predecessor. There is no better way to do that than to ask the business community to pay more to help balance the books. The corporate tax rate has gone from 16 per cent to 10 per cent since the B.C. Liberals came to power, and while I agree that too high a rate can have a negative impact on investment, the timing seems right for a boost. Clark has already signaled she’s prepared to raise corporate taxes, as that was part of her government’s pitch to lower the HST by two points. The voters said no to the HST, but I don’t think they were also saying no to higher corporate taxes. However, you can be sure they will say no to any big cuts to services or programs. That approach was Campbell’s baby. Here’s a chance for the new boss to blaze a different trail. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.

Harmony counters fanaticism

The Editor, The tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. has again brought the issue of terrorism to the forefront. So far Canada has been very fortunate to have been spared such an ordeal. However, this doesn’t mean we should become complacent. The fanatics with twisted minds who choose to engage in the despicable acts of terrorism live in their own fantasyland and are likely to use/misuse religion to justify their insane actions. Their actions can be attributed mainly to fanaticism and intolerance. Every community, religion and culture has a vast majority of adherents who are peace-loving, law-abiding citizens and great role models. At the same time, there are fanatics and fringe elements in every community who will go to any length to impose their own misguided and extremist ideology on others. In this context, blaming the entire community, religion or race for

To pay tribute to the victims of 9/11, St. Alban’s Anglican Church, under the leadership of its rector Margaret Cornish, organized an inter-faith service. Participants included representatives of different faiths including Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. It was a wonderful experience to see people of different faiths share their perspective of the 9/11 tragedy and its aftermath. In addition to praying for the departed souls, the service was also an excellent way to promote inter cultural/faith harmony. All of the resource people on this somber occasion emphasized the importance of learning from and about each other. This is the best way to build bridges between people of different faiths and cultures. Initiatives like this go a long way in bringing people of diverse backgrounds together.

the actions of a few is not only inappropriate but also unproductive. In order to counter fanaticism/ extremism/terrorism, all of us need to be more proactive in creating mutual respect, understanding and awareness. Our different levels of government are doing everything within their means to keep their citizens safe. However, it is also incumbent upon each one of us to do our part in this regard. Richmond is a great example of this. This Child of the Fraser can take great pride in doing just that. Over the years, our city council, staff, as well as many agencies and people have worked tirelessly promoting intercultural harmony in the community. Citizens of Richmond can be proud of the harmonious relationship between people of diverse faiths, cultures and beliefs. The latest example of this was on Sunday, Sept. 11 when a local church undertook a commendable initiative with respect to the 9/11 tragedy.

The Editor, After reading the article on the procession of motorcyclists and emergency vehicles making their way down Highway 99 to the Peace Arch to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I felt this would be a opportunity to commemorate 9/11. I went to the Steveston overpass early Sunday morning. It was a very moving and emotional experience seeing the lights of hundreds of motor bikes and emergency vehicles coming down the highway. Closer to the overpass, we (there were two others there) exchanged many waves with the riders, and the sound of horns and sirens was quite impressive. Without a word there was a connection.

AUCTION

Unwanted Biennale art shopped on the road BY KELLY SINOSKI Postmedia News

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

The sculptures of Lenin’s head an Wind Waves (below) are two of the many pieces of public art in Richmond that have failed to find a buyer.

An international auction house has been engaged to sell the sculptures that were part of the controversial Vancouver Biennale because there hasn’t been huge interest in the works among Metro Vancouver buyers. Biennale spokeswoman Miriam Blume said only one of the 15 works — the 15-metre high sculpture in Richmond by Ren Jun called Water #10 — was sold to a local developer. The rest, along with the smaller maquettes, are expected to be sold in a series of auctions and private sales this fall through Phillips de Pury and Company, which has connections in New York, Hong Kong and London. “Obviously, this art inventory is what funds our next exhibit,” Blume said. An auction/gala scheduled for last spring was cancelled because of lack of ticket sales.

Blume noted the focus this year was on Asian art, which requires an international audience, and many of the pieces cost hundreds

“It was very clear that Vancouver was the wrong venue for this type of artwork.”

— Miriam Blume of thousands of dollars and weighed several thousands tonnes, so weren’t exactly patio furniture.

“It was very clear that Vancouver was the wrong venue for this type of artwork,” she said. “Vancouver, and Canada, frankly, is not very big when you’re dealing with that kind of price ticket. That’s not odd in the art world; art is an international field.” The lone sculpture that was sold will remain on public display in Richmond, as part of a new development. Blume would not disclose the sale price, but it was valued as high as $450,000. Blume added many art patrons in Vancouver are

also buying the maquettes, which are available for between $10,000 and $65,000. The Vancouver Biennale is planning a series of events this fall to engage the public in the artwork before it’s removed from Vancouver in December. Two bicycle tours are being staged for Sunday, Oct. 2. One will be free and family oriented, with a tour of seven sculptures in Vancouver. The other, which will cost a $100 registration fee and is for serious cyclists, will be a 95-km tour of 15 sculptures in Vancouver and Richmond.

Vancouver Airport has been recognized by the aviation industry for improving pre-flight security and border clearance processes. The award — Best Airport Security & Immigration Experience — was presented last week to YVR as part of Future Travel Experience 2011, a global aviation forum that was held at the airport. The airport received the award for programs it developed with partner agencies — Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Canadian Air Transport Security Authority — to simplify and improve airport travel. In particular, the award recognizes the expedited trusted traveler program called NEXUS, and the innovative Automated Border Clearance (ABC) program. “It’s an honour to receive this recognition for our efforts to increase efficiency for passengers travelling through YVR,” said Kevin Molloy, vice president of Simplified Passenger Travel and chief information officer for Vancouver Airport Authority. “We continue to ensure that YVR is pioneering and utilizing cutting-edge technology to offer our passengers a better experience.” The authority worked in partnership with

CBSA to develop ABC, which harnesses self-service kiosk technology to simplify the border clearance process. Since it was introduced in 2009, ABC has substantially reduced the average customs wait time for returning Canadian citizens and permanent residents who have a valid Canadian passport or permanent resident card. During Future Travel Experience 2011 it was announced that Vancouver will again be the host city when the conference and exhibition reconvenes in September 2012. This year marked the first time the global forum has occurred on Canadian soil. “I’m pleased to see that Vancouver was chosen as the location for a discussion on the future of passenger travel,” said Aleks Popovich, senior vice president, International Air Transport Association (IATA). “Vancouver International Airport has long been at the forefront of innovating the passenger experience, and supports many industry facilitation initiatives that are currently endorsed under IATA’s Fast Travel Working Group.” The Future Travel Experience Awards celebrate the efforts of aviation organizations. Five other awards were handed out during the ceremony, including: Best Baggage Initiative, Best Initiative at the Gate, Best Arrivals Experience and Best Use of Mobile Technology. The winners were chosen through consultation with a panel of industry experts.

COMPETITION

Artists must fill the canvas, beat the clock

Painters from across the province head to Richmond Richmond’s Mark Glavina has always been an outdoor painter. When the artist and owner of The Phoenix Art Workshop discovered the Grand Prix of Art in Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island a few years ago, he was hooked. “It’s such a great event and as an artist you miss a lot if you just paint from photographs,” said Glavina. “Taking part in a Grand Prix of Art competition provides excitement and a real adrenaline rush when you paint in a timed competition. “I equate it to the same rush as a race is for an athlete.” Last year, Glavina founded the Steveston Grand Prix of Art. On Saturday, Sept. 17 the second annual art competition takes place. “The challenge for the artists is that the public gets to watch the artists at work,”

he said, adding the public is encouraged to watch and ask questions. “A great artist draws on his observation skills … during this contest the artist can’t erase or start over, so it makes the art work really honest and makes the competition pressure-packed … like performance art.” The Steveston Grand Prix of Art begins at 10 a.m. when a whistle signals the start of the competition. Each artist will be allocated a location in and around Steveston and they will have three hours to complete a work of art before handing them in at the Britannia Heritage Shipyards site, in the Chinese Bunkhouse. “The participant can choose their medium and can paint or draw,” said Glavina, adding artists are coming from all across the province. “However, the artist’s finish work must represent their location in some form or another. Then, all of the works will be displayed and judged.” Meanwhile, last year’s inaugural art see Glavina page 16

Learning to stop and see the watercolours BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

In a span of less than five years, Richmond’s Mike Rossiter’s world changed forever. In 1995, Rossiter was diagnosed with an extremely rare and aggressive form of non-Hodgkin’s cancer, mantle cell lymphoma; his 21-year-old son, Blake, was severely injured in a car accident; and, his marriage was falling apart. “I was fighting a year-long struggle with my cancer at the same time my son was injured,” said the 67-year-old artist. “Blake was a passenger in a car that was T-boned by a truck.” He paused for a moment before adding: “I used to work from 4 a.m. to 6 p.m. in my printing company when everything happened. A year later, I sold my company, and, in 1996, I changed my whole perspective on life. Family and friends became more important than anything else.” Nevertheless, his marriage ended two years later. Rossiter calls himself a “survivor.” “After seven or eight years of remission, it made me want to smell the roses,” said Rossiter. “Everything that happened influenced me to start doing things that I enjoy.” He moved to Richmond in 1996 and after much prodding by his second wife, Rossiter decided to try his hand at painting. “Painting makes me feel like I’m accomplishing something,” he added. “Work is certainly not as rewarding as painting. “I find that when I paint it’s almost like smoking marijuana … it’s that relaxing.” His favourite place to paint is by the Fraser River at Garry Point Park, when the sun is just coming up. “I go down to the river at 6 a.m. when there’s no one but me and my thermos full of coffee,” said Rossiter. “It’s so quiet and peaceful, it’s a pretty special time of day.” Rossiter is once again taking part in Steveston’s Grand Prix of Art. “Although I had never been in a race like this before, I sketched quickly,” he said. “I didn’t feel intimidated by

Rossiter has sold a number of pieces in the last few years. The semi-retired graphic designer prefers to paint marine and landscape scenes. “I’m inspired by my travels and nature,” he said. “I’m also hooked on painting boats in the waters.” However, Rossiter is always one to push the boundaries for himself, he said, so he’s signed on to take life drawing classes this fall. see Painters page 16

Painters: Open to questions Glavina: Invited the world Continued from page 14 competition drew 56 artists; 16 of them young artists. (The youngest was six and the oldest competitor was in his late seventies.) “This year, we are probably going to have 75 artists from Garry Point Park to Britannia Heritage Shipyard and around the village,” said Glavina. “All the locations are very picturesque. “For the participating artists, this is also a chance for them to get exposure, see what other artists are doing and sell their work.” Last year, Steveston merchants sponsored a dozen locations. “We hope to have more on hand this year to sponsor the artists,’ added Glavina. The Grand Prix of Art is an idea, which originated in France. Glavina hopes to create a Grand Prix circuit, taking the idea to five or six other communities, where artists will have the opportunity to travel from location to location, bringing them more exposure. “I invite artists from around the world to com-

Continued from page 15 “I want to be more comfortable drawing people in my paintings,” he added. Mark Glavina, who founded the Steveston Grand Prix of Art, calls Rossiter “an all-around amazing man.” “Mike started with classes at Phoenix Art and was one of the inspirations for me opening the studio 10 years ago,” added Glavina. “Mike has traveled to Cuba, Guatemala, and China with our international painting trips and he is quite accomplished. “Mike is also my graphics volunteer for the Grand Prix of Art.” Rossiter piped in that he has also traveled across Europe — to Florence, Rome, Spain and Portugal — for four months with paintbrush and supplies in tow, and created a series of pieces. In fact it was travelling that prompted him to begin painting. “I was always on my computer and I

started thinking that I could record some of my travels in art form.” That’s how he ended up taking art classes at The Phoenix Art Workshop where he met Glavina. “Painting gives me a good feeling,” he said, adding he belongs to the Richmond Artists Guild. “I really like to create something with my hands.” His medium of choice is watercolour. “It’s easier to move around the paintbrush,” said Rossiter. “I do paint in acrylics and oils but I still prefer watercolour best.” Rossiter said he’s getting geared up for this Saturday’s Steveston Grand Prix of Art. “I’m really looking forward to it and I really encourage the public to come out, ask questions and talk to the painters,” he added. “The art event is a great thing … once it’s over it’s like winning a game and there’s a great deal of satisfaction.”

pete,” said Glavina. On Sunday, Sept. 18 from, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the paintings will be on display and for sale at the Britannia Heritage Shipyards. “Last year, we sold two dozen paintings, and Dan Gray’s went for $1,000.” The funds raised from the sale of each painting will go, in part, to the Richmond Artists Guild. Visitors will also have an opportunity to vote for a People’s Choice award. There will be a flag to identify each location as well as a map of each location available at the Phoenix Art Workshop.

This year’s event will showcase the Latin rhythms of Sangre Morena. This musical duo of vocalist Elsa Rojas Márquez and guitarist José Giménez will entertain artists, volunteers and visitors of the Grand Prix starting at 1:15 p.m. at Britannia Heritage Shipyards. For more information or to register, visit the website at www.grandprixofart.com. The artist fee includes a bagged lunch by Steveston’s Bean & Beyond.

Phoenix Art Workshop is once again sponsoring the painting event of the year. Our picturesque village will host the 2nd annual Steveston Grand Prix of Art, Saturday, September 17th, 2011. Last year’s Grand Prix celebrated fifty-six artists, painting in thirty stunning locations.

The concept of the Grand Prix of Art is to celebrate artists from around the province, painting in “Plein Air”. Britannia Heritage Shipyards in Richmond will act as our host with participating artists being allocated a painting location in and around Steveston. Artists will have 3 hours to complete a work of art, before returning it to the shipyards for display and adjudication. Over $1000 in Cash awards will be presented to finalists including several youth and participation awards. Visitors will have a say as well, with an opportunity to vote for the “People’s Choice Award”.

breathing. May cause high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heart beats.

To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS ! For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air.

Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. I was skeptical #23 about Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Eze #23. After using it for 3 weeks my wife says there is no more snoring or gasping for breath or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with and can get up with no restrictions. Thank you Bell for a great relief.

ACNE

Eczema, Psoriasis Rosacea, Rashes

By Dr. C. Hammoud Ph.D.

!I had terrible Acne for 3 years and tried Benzoyl Peroxide, Proactiv, Aloe Vera and others. After 4 days taking the Bell natural product #60 it started to clear up my skin. My skin changed from terrible to beautiful. Mylene Theriault, 19, Sorel-Tracy, QC !In 2 days my son’s face completely cleared up of acne. My son is 15 #60 and suffered for 3 years. We used many products like Guaranteed better than laser, Clean Clear, Neem that did not work or burned his all others they used say skin. Veronica Marden, Seminole, TX !Unbelievable dozens of delighted users acne free beautiful skin Last couple of years I had with full names and towns acne and tried every product like Murad, Proactiv and on the Bell website. Works antibiotics. Results with #60 were unbelievable. Thanks for giving me beautiful skin and my self-esteem. Nelisa by cleansing blood inside Royer, 28, Doral, FL !Within 6 days eczema cleared rather than attacking skin up completely. I believe #60 addresses the cause internally from the outside and leaving instead of the symptoms. Latifa Boutshik, 43, North York, the actual cause untreated. ON !I had severe psoriasis over 95% of my body. Here are a few examples: Last 5 years I have stunned every doctor and dermatologist. I spent tons of money on remedies. After I got Bell #60, I’ve never seen anything work as fast in my life. Within 2 days I saw my skin clearing up. I’m speechless. It was inexpensive compared with what I spent before. Jessica Shantz, 25, Dawson Creek, BC !All statements made on the Bell website are sent by delighted users. All are real people. Most have listed phone numbers and can be called for advice. No money is paid to them. Their reward is the relief they are getting. All say #60 works within days not months, not years. It’s more effective than what they used before. It is less expensive (some acne suppliers ship monthly and charge monthly, which may amount to large sums yearly). No side effects were reported on #60. All true experiences from real people.

Saldanha Growing up in Dubai, Dielle and Dean weren’t interested in taking a risk on the monopoly of trivial pursuits available to them, but one game caught Dean’s interest. His parents were avid Scrabble players, and by the time he was nine, Dean was tired of setting up their board and asked to get into the game at his parent’s Scrabble club. “They took him to the club and he was beating up all the adults,” Dielle said. “I had an ability for anagramming,” Dean acknowledged. The family moved to Canada in 1998, and it wasn’t long after settling into a new country that Dielle was ready to join her brother at the board. “My third tournament was a national championship in San Diego. . . and after

Take a letter: Dean and Dielle Saldanha are planning to catch up with old friends and study new dictionaries at the World Scrabble Championship in Warsaw, Poland. that I was hooked,” she said. Dielle laughed when asked about explaining Scrabble competitions to her friends. “The first time they hear it they’re, like, ‘Wait, wait, you do what?’” she said. Dielle, who finished in the top 100 at the 2009 WSC credits some of her success to her innate ability to enjoy games. But while the 63-year-old game might appear to be fertile ground for wordsmiths, the siblings have found that a large vocabulary isn’t usually a top play-

er’s most important attribute. “It’s more of a math game than a word game at the higher levels,” Dielle said. For Dean, who placed 13th at the 2005 world championships, math skills are crucial in those moments when you need to calculate the probability of a few essential letters falling out of the bag. There are 96 legitimate two-letter words in Dean’s Scrabble dictionary, and he said he’s committed each one to memory. Besides etching a giant vocabulary

on your brain, a poker psychology can sometimes prevail amid the clicking and flipping of the tiles. “There’s a bluffing factor in North American Scrabble,” Dean said, explaining that a player loses a turn if his challenge of a word is wrong. “If you’re a higher-rated player you can get away with a lot against a lowerrated player,” he said. Besides trying to close off the board against an intimidating player and a few other tricks of the trade, Dielle said it sometimes come down to chance. “Luck is such a large part of the game. You can do everything right but still lose by 200 points.” Still, Dean does everything possible to tilt the board in his favour, including wearing a hat to shield his eyes from his opponent. “I’m convinced if they can see my eyes, they know where my next move is going to be,” he said. But while the players are committed to Scrabble, sponsorship has become difficult to come by. Hasbro, the original makers of Scrabble, used to sponsor the tournament. “That fell through a couple years ago,” Dean said. “Hasbro doesn’t do anything for the players.” The brother and sister Scrabblers have tried to raise funds and are still looking for sponsors, but they’re both determined to make it to Warsaw next month, and are prepping with the thicker dictionary they’ll need to use. “We have to learn all the words that are in the British dictionary,” Dielle said. That means access to approximately 120,000 words that aren’t eligible in the North American game, according to Dean. The tournament is scheduled to take place between October 12 and 16.

Ride: Helping sick kids

FUNDRAISING DINNER

Continued from page 25 James will also be joined by award-winning producer, artist and writer Chin Injeti, who worked on Eminem’s Grammy winning CD, Recovery, and on Young Artists for Haiti’s Juno winning single, Wavin’ Flag. In a press release, Injeti said: “Music therapy saved my life — physically and spiritually. I would not be who I am without it.” So far, the Music Therapy Ride has raised more than $350,000 for the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund. This year, in addition to funding music therapists and Music Therapy programs, the ride is helping fund a recording studio at BC Children’s Hospital, as well as a mobile recording studio for bedridden patients. According to event organizer Patrick Zulinov, who is the assistant program director of FM radio station Shore 104, the mobile studios, called Band Wagon, consists of guitars, built-in keyboard, stereo speakers, a big screen Mac computer with keyboard, music software, which are all together on wheels. “A lot of these kids are terminally ill that are making use of it,” said Zulinov. “What it can do is leave behind a legacy of the child for their parents. The kids can record and leave something behind for their family which is very meaningful.” Meanwhile, if you are up at Whistler as the convoy rolls in, James and friends just might pick up some instruments and sing some songs.

Teen rider making steady progress in dressage arena

Monica Houweling solidfies her promising status with outstanding showing at North America Championships BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

On a rural stretch of No. 3 Road, south of Steveston Highway, lies one of the province’s equine hotbeds where Monica Houweling has been chasing and realizing her dream for the last seven years. The 18-year-old graude of Richmond Christian School has made daily visits to Centre Line Stables part of her life as she has developed into one of the country’s top up-and-coming dressage competitors, working under her longtime coach Karen Pavicic.

Monica Houweling

“I just love coming out here and doing my thing,” smiled Houweling after a lesson last week in Centre Line’s indoor arena onboard Stentano, her 12-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding. “Karen knows me and knows just how to push me too. She is really talented and has really brought me along.” Houweling’s measurement for success the past four years has come in the way of earning the opportunity to represent Canada at the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) North American Junior and Young Rider Championships in Kentucky. After reaching the podium a year ago in the team competition, Houweling’s goal was to contend in individual events in what was her final competition at the

Junior (18 and under) level. She fulfilled her expectations and then some, winning silver in the freestyle round and bronze in the individual test. Her division featured 43 competitors from throughout North America. Houweling took the momentum into the recent B.C. Dressage Championships where she made her debut at the Young Riders level (21 and under) and came away with gold. With one more regional event on her 2011 schedule, she is in a favourable position moving ahead and trying to earn her way back to Kentucky in the new year. “I wanted to see where I was at and thought we would just go in and test it,” she said. “We ended up on top but there is still lots of work to do. I will now be focused on training and settling (Stentano) into the new level. “My scores were good enough to (get me back to Kentucky). But I only want to go back if I am going to be competitive too.” With her mom having a passion for horses, Houweling and her two sisters, were in introduced to riding at a young age. For Monica, it quickly developed into more than just a weekend pastime. She began by taking basic riding lessons at a local barn and made rapid progress. By the time she first hooked-up with Pavicic, Houweling’s parents had purchased her a pony. She would go on to another mount, before Stenato was imported from Holland in 2006. It took about a year before a great enough bond was developed for Houweling to become the FEI Children’s Champion. Describing her sport as combination of figure skating and gymnastics, with judges’ scoring based on how well movements are executed, Houweling says there is no real “peak” age in dressage and it’s more about experience and continued progress to perhaps one day reach the grand prix level. “The time frame is really just moving forward,” she said. “You can go as long as your body can take it but horses can go lame at anytime. A big part of it too is the mental game. You can get yourself there but the horse has to as well. They are unpredictable and that’s why it’s so important getting to know him. “This is my dream and who knows where it its taking me to.”

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Monica Houweling and her 12-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding Stentano have wasted little time in making an impact at the Young Riders level of dressage.

Richmond’s Brad Hoffman captained Team B.C. to its first-ever gold medal at the Canadian Under 16 Field Lacrosse Championships in Burnaby. The long pole defenceman was given the prestigous honour of captaining the team thanks to his leadership and dedication to the game. Hoffman also played for Team B.C. the previous summer in Saskatchewan where his squad lost a one goal heartbreaker to Ontario in the final. This time, the fortunes would be reversed as the host province edged its eastern rival 11-10 to capture the Alumni Cup National Trophy. Hoffman’s outstanding play also earned him a spot on the tournament all-star team. The victory in Burnaby capped a busy and successful summer of lacrosse. Earlier, Hoffman was a key player for the Richmond Roadrunners who concluded their box lacrosse season at the Provincial Midget A2 Championships in Coquitlam. Hoffman led the Roadrunners in scoring as the locals narrowly missed advancing to the playoff round. His play earned him a spot on the provincial tournament all-star team. He also picked up a player-ofthe-game award and was named the 2011 Subway Zone 5 Midget Player of the Year. Earlier, he travelled with his third team — the Burnaby Mountain Selects — coached by Simon Fraser University men’s field lacrosse coach Brent Hoskins. The Selects’ elite team went to Syracuse
