John Furlong, former CEO of VANOC, jokes around with Mayor Malcolm Brodie as Furlong hands off the relay medal in the Richmond leg of the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay. More than 300 people showed up at the Richmond Olympic Oval for an End of Day Celebration Sunday to mark the end of this segment of the relay with Olympic figure skater Patrick Chan, Furlong, Brodie and activist Vincent Miele carrying the medal the last 1,000metres to the Oval. Richmond’s own, Fraser Walters of the Canadian Tenors, sang O Canada. Read more and view photo gallery online at www.richmond-news.com.

COURTHOUSE

Family court found guilty of creating family stress BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

A severe shortage of judges in Richmond is piling more stress onto families who are already emotionally drained by a creaking court system. That’s the scathing verdict from the Richmond Family and Youth Court Committee, which has appealed to B.C.’s Attorney General office for more than the two full-time judges assigned to the family court — the lowest for any Lower Mainland municipality. The 2011 annual report from the voluntary committee — which has a B.C. gov-

judges has been reduced, from what I think was six, has to have an impact on the receiving end,” said Theresa Vossa, past chair of the court committee and a family counsellor for Touchstone Family Association. “(Families) often come to court on a date they were given some time ago, only to be told it’s been put off, and they will have to go through the whole process again because something else has taken precedence for the judge in question. “People go there thinking they’re going

to have it dealt with that day; they’ve probably been preparing themselves for a while for that day. It really is so emotionally draining for them.” And when the delays inevitably occur, lawyers still need to be paid for their time, added Vossa, which kick-starts a vicious cycle of events leading to even more delays. “Not everyone can afford to keep paying lawyers — lawyers that many can barely afford in the first place,” she said. see City page 3

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Theresa Vossa, of the Richmond Family and Youth Court Committee, is pushing for an increase in the number of judges assigned to the city’s family court.

City: Helping court families Continued from page 1 “When they can’t afford it, they self represent and, because they don’t know the system, it slows everything down even more. We witness this all the time.” The committee’s report has been sent, like every other year, to the B.C. Attorney General’s office. However, Vossa is suspect about whether the reports ever get looked at, as they rarely receive any feedback on the recommendations. Richmond city council, on the other hand, has agreed to back up the committee’s appeal for more judges and will write to the Attorney General’s office in due course. Meanwhile, a number of issues identified by the committee are already in the process of being rectified in a bid to improve the public’s experience of the family court. The City of Richmond owns

the courthouse building and, thanks to the involvement of Coun. Evelina Halsey-Brandt, there looks set to be a new pamphlet rack, a baby-change table in the men’s washroom and better signage in the lobby. “For the average person, going to court is a scary thing,” said Vossa. “There is a fear factor for these people and if you can’t find your way around, it only makes things worse. “I was told (by the court) there was no money to fix these issues, but it is a cityowned building, and when I brought this forward to city council, they took care of it.” A meeting will now take place Thursday between the committee, the court manager and the city to put the changes into place at the city’s expense. Halsey-Brandt acknowledged the lack of signage is a problem at the court and was happy to move things along as quickly as possible. “The

committee approached the court manager, but the court has more important things to worry about, case loads for one thing,” she said. “I’m in a position to cut through the red tape, and I was able to facilitate … because this is for our citizens who’re having to go through the family court system. “I know the system well and I have the contacts, so I’m happy to help speed things up. Sometimes, at government level, we spend too much time on the tiny things.” Halsey-Brandt also hailed the sterling work of the committee’s volunteers, adding, “We have a very active court committee and their observations are not superficial, they are very in-depth.” The B.C. Attorney General’s office was preparing a response to the committee’s report, but did not get back to the News by press time.

A longtime Richmond food campaigner is urging city council to go a step further than writing a strongly worded letter about banning genetically engineered (GE) crops. Arzeena Hamir, formerly of the Richmond Food Security Society, has helped raise a 1,000-signature petition she hopes will convince the city to declare Richmond a GE crop-free zone. Hamir was set to speak to city council’s general purposes committee on Tuesday afternoon, pleading Arzeena Hamir with them to go the extra mile ahead of a staff recommendation to send letters to senior levels of government requesting mandatory labelling of foods that contain products of GE crops. The move, however, falls short of a ban on GE shrubs, plants and crops; a move sought by grassroots movement GE Free BC, which Hamir supports. “It could be something similar to when an area is classed by a city as a ‘nuclear-free zone.’ Lots of businesses in Richmond are behind this as well.” GE food is nowhere near as safe as people see Ban page 4

Celebration planned for Moses brothers A Celebration of Life memorial service will be held Saturday, May 26 at Richmond Pentecostal Church for the two brothers who died in a tragic car crash last weekend. Shane and Jess Moses, 19 and 16, lost their lives in the early hours of Saturday, May 12 when the BMW they were passengers in struck a tree. The family has asked, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to next year’s McNair dry grad celebrations and to a bursary in their names.

Double duty expected of Sea Island base Coast Guard response times from Richmond’s Sea Island base could double, a union has warned, after a decision to close the service’s Kitsilano operation. The federal government is risking lives by shutting down a coast guard station on the Vancouver waterfront as part of budget cuts, the public sector union stated further. The Union of Canadian Transportation Employees announced Thursday the operations of the Kitsilano station, which straddles a busy boating area between English Bay and False Creek, will be shifted to another base on Sea Island in Richmond. Christine Collins, the union’s national president, said closing the station will double response times by as much as an hour. “There is no doubt in my mind that lives will be lost,” she said, noting crews responded to 285 calls last year and 70 calls so far this year. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans

said in an email, though, the Kitsilano and Sea Island operations perform the same functions and their service areas overlap. The department also said no other coast guard operations are in such close proximity, service levels will remain the same, and a new hovercraft is coming next year. Gerry Moores, union shop steward, said employees were informed of the cuts Thursday afternoon and reacted with profound sadness, tears and even a “temperamental outburst.” “That coast guard station is a huge value for Vancouver and our harbour,” added Mayor Gregor Robertson, noting emergency calls can’t be served from kilometres away. The announcement came almost one week before safe boating awareness week, which runs May 26 to June 1. Last year, the federal government closed two other rescue centres in St. John’s, NL., and Quebec City. — The Province

Ban: More symbolic, put city on map Continued from page 1 are being told, warned Hamir, who added that Richmond only has three farms that produce such foods. “It wouldn’t have a huge impact if Richmond were to go through with this,” she said. “It would be more symbolic than anything else and would put Richmond firmly on the map, making them the first city in the Lower Mainland to have such a

designation.” GE Free BC has spent two years trying to convince Richmond to join a handful of communities in B.C. that have enacted such bans. Rossland, Kaslo, Nelson, Powell River and Saltspring Island have enacted such bans, but for a predominantly agricultural municipality to do so would be a powerful statement, Hamir said. — with a file from the Vancouver Sun

Drug exportation and trafficking charges have been recommended against a man who allegedly tried to board a flight to Australia with a belly full of cocaine. Last month, during routine outbound currency checks, border services officers at YVR noticed inconsistencies in the statements from the man, so they referred him for a more thorough examination. Officers then suspected he may have swallowed some drugs. The man was arrested and escorted to a hospital, where he eventually expelled 42 condoms filled with what border services officers believe to be liquid cocaine. The seized drugs had a weight of 1.26 kilograms. Once doctors confirmed no more drugs remained in the man’s system, he and the drugs were transferred into Richmond RCMP custody. Police would not release the man’s name or any information about him Thursday. — The Province

$100,000 lost in fraud

A fraud artist who ripped off two employers for more than $170,000 has been sent to prison for two and a half years. Karim Rajabally Manji, 47, was handed the sentence last week in North Vancouver provincial court after pleading guilty to defrauding two employers in Richmond and

North Vancouver. Manji first helped himself to the company piggy bank when he worked for Pacific Avionics and Instruments at Vancouver International Airport between 2004 and 2006, as a financial manager and was one of three people authorized to sign cheques. Within six weeks of being hired, he had advanced himself an extra $2,500, said Crown counsel Ian Hay. Eventually, after a purchase of jewelry was discovered, a forensic audit was completed. Manji later admitted to taking more than $100,000 from the company. He later went to work for High Output Sports in North Vancouver where he again took money from his employers over several months in 2007. He also took money from another North Vancouver employer where he worked between April and November 2008. At the time, Manji was serving a conditional sentence for his fraud against High Output Sports, and was still awaiting sentence on a third fraud charge against another Vancouver company. In sentencing Manji, Judge Carol Baird Ellan noted all four frauds happened between 2004 and 2008 after he and his wife lost their life savings in a failed business venture. At least some of the money taken was used “to keep up appearances.”

News Night markets draw packed crowds IAN LINDSAY PNG STAFF PHOTO

Trays of freshly prepared foods awaited customers at the Richmond Night Market on Sunday. This night market opened last weekend, running concurrently, for the first time, with the Summer Night Market. Both markets attracted mass crowds. BY STEPHANIE IP The Province

Only one weekend into what many feared would be a summer of duelling night markets in Richmond, it seems there’s room for both — with one even reporting recordbreaking numbers. The fifth annual Summer Night Market, located near IKEA Richmond, opened May 11, while the Richmond Night Market, situated by River Rock Casino, opened this past weekend. Even so, Paul Cheung, who founded the market near IKEA, said attendance at his event is poised to continue growing despite the competition. “We, ourselves, are quite astonished by the turnout, especially this weekend when the other market opened up,” he said, noting last weekend’s opening night saw 18,000 visitors pass through the gates, an increase from 2011, which welcomed 13,000 on opening night.

“It’s always slow in the beginning and doesn’t pick up until June, but this year has been amazing,” Cheung said. The two markets have long been immersed in controversy with this past weekend being the first to see both events run concurrently. Richmond resident Graeme Bone visited the Richmond Night Market and noted it, too, was busy, which lent an air of authenticity. “I used to live in Taiwan so I went to a lot of night markets there and I felt both [of Richmond’s markets] lived up to that culture,” he said. Both markets are open 7 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the Richmond Night Market, located on River Road west of Bridgeport SkyTrain station, is open 6 to 11 p.m., while the Summer Night Market, located on Vulcan Way off Bridgeport Road, is open 7 to 11 p.m.

YVR opens routes to China, London BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Two new corridors of passage will soon open between North America and opposite sides of the globe. Vancouver Airport Authority (VAA) announced Friday the arrival of Sichuan Airlines, offering the continent’s first and only direct flight to China’s interior. And on Thursday, the first ever direct flight of a Virgin Airlines aircraft will land at YVR from London Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic founder Sir Richard Branson on board. Branson is expected to take part in a press conference and official welcome after the plane lands. Beginning June 22, Sichuan Airlines will offer service three times per week between Vancouver and Chengdu, via Shenyang. “The service to Sichuan Province marks not only a new destination, but a new airline for YVR,” said Larry Berg, VAA president and CEO. “This means more options for passengers and greater opportunities for business and for tourism.” Chengdu and Shenyang are both regarded as impor-

tant economic, transportation and commercial hubs. Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province, is home to 14 million people and the famous giant panda. Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning Province, has a population of 8.1 million and is one of the 10 largest cities in China. “Opening this new route will further expand Vancouver International Airport’s reach into China’s domestic network,” said Zhang Huiyu, vice president of Sichuan Airlines. “This will accelerate deep and multi-scope cooperation between Canada and China’s western and northeast regions in agriculture, technology, commerce, trade, tourism and education.” Sichuan Airlines’ service to and from YVR will use an Airbus 330 aircraft with capacity for 245 passengers. Flights will operate on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, arriving at 8:20 a.m., departing at 10:20 a.m. Sichuan Airlines’ service is estimated to generate 56 person-years of employment, $2.6 million in wages and contribute $5 million to British Columbia’s gross domestic product annually.

Cedar tree poaching becomes metaphorical

T

o blame funding cuts for the high-profile poaching of an 800-year-old western red cedar this month is something of a stretch, but the incident nonetheless serves neatly as a metaphor for our government’s approach to the environment. Critics of the B.C. Liberals have said the three-metre-wide giant was stolen from Carmanah-Walbran Provincial Park because the rangers who should have protected it were dismissed. The reality is that in a wilderness the size of British Columbia’s, no number of park staff could defend every tree from determined poachers; however, the event still says something important about what happens when those who would damage our environment can act with impunity. In lean times, government environmental programs are among the first things to go. They’re an easy mark, politically, because the consequences aren’t immediately obvious. This is happening at the provincial and federal levels right now, with institutions that monitor water, air, fisheries and other vital aspects of our environment facing severe cutbacks, even while flashier, but less important programs — jets and new prisons come to mind — are preserved. The results can be severe, ranging from the collapse of fisheries to the wholesale destruction of vital habitat but, as with the poaching of a cedar, the problems won’t come to public attention until it’s too late. Our leaders have to start treating environmental regulation and enforcement with the same gravity they view higher-profile programs, or one day we will wake up to find we have lost a great deal more than a tree.

CHOICE WORDS

Smart meters not so toxic The Editor, Re: “Government ignores WHO,” Letters, May 11. The author of the letter may be confused between a substance that is toxic versus carcinogenic. She stated since DDT and mercury are generally considered toxic and listed as WHO class 2b carcinogen, this supports the fact that radiofrequency emission — also a class 2b carcinogen — must therefore be bad for our health. In fact, many substances can be toxic, but not particularly carcinogenic. When you consider that coffee is also a WHO class 2b carcinogen, then you realize one needs to differentiate between acute toxicity versus carcinogenicity. Just as being included on the same list as coffee does not make radiofrequency emission a useful pick-me-up in the morning, being on the same list as mercury does not make radiofrequency emission as grave a health concern as mercury poisoning. In fact, we know very few substances that can definitely cause cancer. Also, the WHO only found six human studies and all were concerned with mobile phones and brain tumours. In the largest study involving 13 countries, the overall conclusion was that there was no increased risk of brain tumour with mobile phone use of more than 10 years (http://jnci.oxfordjournals.org/content/98/23/1707). Finally, to put this into context, we’re not likely to hold the smart meter anywhere near our head as with our mobile phone. Given that the exposure level drops off exponentially as you move away from the meter, at the average distance (less than two feet) from the meter, the exposure would be about 15,000 times less than the known thermal (rise in temperature) hazard level. And brain tumours are rare — they account for only two per cent of all cancers. So if I want to worry about cancer, I would pay more attention to applying sunscreen than smart meters.

Why the urgency around LDB changes? One of the more puzzling, if not downright suspicious, moves by the B.C. Liberal government is its out-the-blue insistence on privatizing the Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB). It has led to speculation that other major changes are on the way — potentially paving the way for raising the price of booze and perhaps closing some government liquor stores as well. Whenever a government appears to be in its dying days and its politicians start tinkering with liquor policies, my political antennae starts quivering. Mixing politics and liquor can be a recipe for disaster. The government has yet to provide any business case for privatizing the LDB. NDP critic, Shane Simpson, has asked repeatedly in the legislature for any details supporting the sale, but has been rebuffed by the Minister Rich Coleman. Coleman has admitted the decision to sell the branch was only made a week before the February budget was tabled. The original sell-off date was in 2015, but has suddenly been moved up to March 2013 (before the scheduled election). And last week the branch’s general manager told industry reps there is no time for consultation because of the “tight timelines” involved. Why the urgency? I’ve talked to private industry representatives, who fear their distribu-

tion costs will increase if a private company begins running things instead of the government. Naturally, those increased costs will be passed onto consumers. The industry looks at Alberta when it comes to liquor policies, and shudders. A prominent brewer in B.C. — Matt Phillips, of Phillips Brewing Co. — says he pays almost twice as high a distribution cost for a case of beer in Alberta compared to his cost in B.C. ($1.53 versus 78 cents). Further clouding the issue is the impression that one particular company may be the front-runner in the bidding. The company, Exel Logistics, employs two prominent Liberal insiders as its lobbyists. One of those lobbyists, Patrick Kinsella, is a former campaign chair for the Liberal party and was a key advisor on Premier Christy Clark’s leadership campaign. A leaked 2009 internal corporate memo from Exel shows the company thinks it could “influence the writing of the request for proposal” in the bidding process by using its “strong relationship” with Coleman. Coleman has heatedly denied any favouritism in

the bidding process but, as in politics, the “optics” here are brutal. Of further concern is the fact that Exel also operates the distribution system in Alberta. Industry representatives in B.C. characterize Alberta’s system as a chaotic mess driving up prices. The bidding process also proposes that government liquor stores have standalone profit and loss reporting, instead of the current collective reporting. Since some stores are considerably more profitable than others, this could potentially lead to the closure of some stores and the opening of more private stores (which pay their employees less than what can be earned in government stores). The old issue of “dual licenses” has also resurfaced (allowing pretty well any restaurant to turn into a bar at, say, 9 p.m.) and with it comes worries about a proliferation of liquor outlets, which not only greatly expands the availability of alcohol, but also makes sustaining a decent business in that industry that much more difficult. Add it all up, and you have an industry that affects a huge number of British Columbians potentially getting hammered by major changes — and all with no consultation. Keep a close eye on this one, folks. Things may get ugly before it’s all over. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Claxton hits nail on head Some kids really Some kids really The Editor, Re: “Jim Flaherty finds a deep well of stupid,” Column, May 18. The article by Matthew Claxton, is truly of the highest calibre. The truth of the matter is apparent — that those of the “chattering class” who seek to govern us, have seldom, if ever, developed any callouses, or experienced anything like ardous or distasteful “work”. As one joke would have it, “Why is there always an assistant standing next to the politician when a ground-breaking ceremony is held?” “Simple, he is there to make sure the

politician puts the correct end of the shovel into the ground!” Isn’t it strange, when seeking our vote, like our Richmond MPs, they pose as the most open, honest and moral of individuals. But, after achieving the position, they are no longer the representative of the people of Richmond, but a mouthpiece of Ottawa to the hopelessly dumb, unwashed electorate back home. In any case, please convey my sincere congratulations to Claxton and my hope is for many more articles of this calibre. Terrence Murphy Richmond

Tyranny of common knowledge Investors have once again proven they are not smarter than the market. There is no shame in this, as the talking heads of the business media have proven the same. At the beginning of 2011, “common knowledge” mainWEALTH tained the Canadian economy and its stock market would outperform that of the United States. Why is it, then, that from January 1, 2011 to April 30, 2012, U.S. stocks, represented by the S&P 500 Total Return Index, grew by 13.15 per cent, while Canadian stocks, represented by the S&P TSX Total Return Index, lost 5.27 per cent? The answer lies in the fact that investors knew how poorly the U.S. economy was doing and priced its stocks down to the point where they could expect a positive return going forward. You see, although investors are not smarter than the market, they are also not stupid. Why in the world would they hold stocks at a lower price if they did not expect a positive return? Other investors held Canadian stocks at their higher prices, as their positive expectations warranted a higher price. No one had a crystal ball though. The news about the U.S. ended up being about the same as expected and investors were rewarded accordingly. The news about Canadian stocks on the other hand ended up being worse than expected and Canadian stocks underperformed. Expectations of the economy bear very little relationship to how stock markets will

perform. We’re back to the same old reality. We are no smarter than the markets. Lacking knowledge of the future, we cannot consistently pick winning stocks. Concentrating our portfolios into any parSMARTS ticular sector simply increases our risk and hence we must diversify in as many ways possible. What’s a person to do? First, ignore those who are trying to tell you what the market will do in the short to mid-term. They are lying. They simply do not know. Financial science and logic back me up on this. Next, I would pay attention to the scientists rather than the salesmen. For a sampling of deep investment thought, Google the following names: Eugene Fama, Kenneth French, Harry Markowitz and William F. Sharpe. I would also read Warren Buffett’s Annual Reports on the Berkshire Hathaway site. Your insomnia will miraculously be cured. Then, work with an advisor who understands financial truth and diversify according to your unique risk tolerances by asset class, by geography, by size of company, by valuation (growth or value stocks) and across every possible industry sector available. If you want tax-efficient returns that are better than term deposits offer, you must be prepared to take manageable levels of risk and be a long term believer in free enterprise.

B.C. and Ontario crowned national champions at Oval

Breakers get past Calgary in final to capture women’s title With the tournament’s most outstanding offensive players at the helm, the B.C. Breakers propelled themselves to a 77-56 win over the Calgary Rollers in the women’s gold medal final of the 2012 National Championships; while Ontario claimed first place in the men’s final with a golden 7652 win over B.C. Sunday at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The Breakers took home the Dr. Donald Royer Trophy and establish themselves as the top women’s club team in the country. Janet McLachlan continued to be an offensive juggernaut scoring a monstrous 47

points and 13 rebounds. She finished the tournament averaging 34.5 points per game, which is more than double the next highest person and was easily voted the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. “It’s great winning at home in front of the crowd here and family and friends. And to be a part of the Rick Hansen event, it’s fantastic to win it here. It’s always good to win. Calgary came out and played a really hard game and we had to be sharp and luckily we were that today,” said McLachlan. “Everyone played really well. We moved the ball well and played stretches of really good defense and we did what we needed to do to win so that’s what’s important.” Ontario claimed the Robert W. Jackson Trophy as national champions, putting an end to BC’s string of five tournament wins in a row. Ontario was led by men’s tournament MVP Patrick Anderson who scored 27 points, 14 rebounds, and 13 assists (all game-highs) to secure the tournament’s only triple-double. Through the course of the tournament Anderson paced the floor with 24.4 points per CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS game thanks to some terrific shooting. He shot 70.5 percent Richard Peter of Team B.C. looks to get a shot off from the field and 83.3 percent during the men’s gold medal game against Ontario. from the free-throw line.

Richmond High coach, who led the Colts to five B.C. titles during an amazing 34 year coaching span, worked along side Lloyd Scrubb and Jon Tagulao during his time with the Fighting Irish. When he learned of the Saints opportunity, he jumped at the chance. “I kind of put the word out that I’d like to coach a team on my own at VC, which was my first choice,” Disbrow told the Vancouver Province “But nothing was really available. They already had excellent coaches at all levels, and they really wanted me back.” “Last year was the first one in which I didn’t design the practices, and I realized that that was what I loved to do. I still had full input on everything, and nothing I ever said was ever rejected. I just discovered that it was the single thing I missed the most.”

Paul Eberhardt is back to double duty when the basketball season tips off next fall. The colourful longtime bench boss of the defending Richmond champion RC Palmer Griffins will also serve as head coach of the Langara Falcons men’s basketball team. Holding down two coaching positions is nothing new for Eberhardt, who was in charge of the Capilano University Blues program from 1999-2009, while continuing his high school coaching commitment. If anything, Langara should be a better fit given its location to Palmer and it’s not too far where Eberhardt has lived his entire life. “I am more than excited to take over the head men’s coaching job at Langara,” said Eberhardt. “The tradition of excellence in this program is second to none, and it is an honour to follow in the footsteps of the
