Parents tackle cyber bullying

$11,000 clean-up A homeowner has had his unsightly property inspected eight times and received three deadline extensions to clean it up or face an $11,000 bill.

Workshop aims to give adults knowledge

“If we can make a difference to one kid’s life, then it’ll have been worthwhile.” The benefits, no matter how small, of shining the spotlight on social media bullying is not lost on Byron Stevens. And with a free doubleheader workshop and presentation on the hot topic in December and January, Stevens, Richmond District Parents Association president, is hoping that bright light intensifies by way of arming people with knowledge. The RDPA and the Richmond School District have teamed up to sponsor a two-part series for parents to learn more about the dangers of social media and strategies to keep their children safe. It all kicks off next week, Dec. 5 at MacNeill secondary with “Lets Talk About Your Child & the Realities of Online Media,” presented by renowned speaker on the subject Jesse Miller. “About 300 have signed up already, the gym hall holds about 600 and we’re hoping to pack it out,” said Stevens. “It’s not exclusively for parents; students who express an interest are also very welcome.” Cyber bullying is still very much in the public eye right now, added Stevens, referring to the tragic circumstances surrounding the death of Amanda Todd. see Workshops page 5 $

Federal Liberal Party leadership hopeful Justin Trudeau paid a visit to Pathways Clubhouse in Richmond, a facility that helps people with mental health issues. There, he referred to the inspiration his mother (Margaret) has been as she has spoken publicly about her bipolar condition.

Trudeau lauds Pathways’ power Liberal leader hopeful talked about his mother’s mental health BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST

akamst@richmond-news.com

With people peeking outside the window and cameras ready to shoot, it was almost like royalty had arrived in Richmond. For members and staff of Pathways Clubhouse, it was an exciting afternoon as they welcomed Liberal MP Justin Trudeau for a visit. Trudeau, in a bid for the leadership of the federal Liberal Party, was in town to discuss issues related to mental health. Staff members were invited to partake in the round-table discussion, where Trudeau spent as much time asking questions as he did answering them. He repeatedly stressed the importance and value of empowering those affected by mental illness, referring directly to his mother, Margaret Trudeau, who has long struggled with mental health problems. “All my life, I’ve had people coming up to me and telling me

how much my father meant to them,” he said of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. “But for the last four or five years, I’ve heard people talking about how much my mom has done for them.” He was inspired by his mother, who felt no shame about her bipolar condition, nor about the fact she needed help, he recalled. Lauding the work of the Richmond facility, he said nowadays there is not enough recognition or compensation for those taking care of the most vulnerable in society. “Those who work here chose this for the glory and money,” he joked, to which the whole room burst into laughter. Yet, he encouraged staff workers by stating, “we are not defined by what we get, but by what we have to offer.” On a serious note, when told about the challenges mentally ill people face regarding housing, Trudeau assured the group he is committed to forming a national housing strategy for all vulnerable

groups, including single mothers, the elderly and new immigrants. He then returned the question by asking whether employment is hard to find for those experiencing mental health problems. It is, according to Una Mulhall, employment program manager at Pathways. “A lot of people don’t understand that people with mental illness want to work, just like everyone else,” she said. However, “they still face a stigma in the community, and I don’t notice it getting any easier.” Fortunately, private partners who do hire people with mental health problems, tend to commit long-term. Trudeau also honed in on the issue of home care. He referred to Quebec, where he has seen many patients taken out of their hospital room and brought back into their home environment. That solution leads to better quality of life, he said, which raises the need for adequate training and financial resources for home care workers.

Upfront

BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Work on the new $2.5-million Railway Corridor greenway could begin as early as next spring. Plans for the recreational trail along Railway Avenue from Garry Street in the south to Granville Avenue in the north have been fleshed out and were set to be presented to a city council committee Tuesday. The city hope the 5.6-kilometre greenway will provide a long awaited connection between the south dyke/ Steveston and the Fraser River’s middle arm waterfronts, ultimately hooking up to the west dyke trail system to create a contin— Mike uous 15-kilometre loop. Since the summer, the city has been consulting with the public through open houses, workshops and surveys about what the Railway Corridor should look like. And the feedback, according to the city, has been overwhelmingly positive. “The comments received were very positive and there was a general sense of excitement looking forward to the implementation of the project,” said the city’s senior parks manager, Mike Redpath, in his report. Many members of the public indicated they would use the trail to walk, cycle or jog, while others said they would use the trail to get to other parks and shopping destinations across the city. Although grander plans are envisaged for the trail in years to come, Redpath noted the first priority for the Railway corridor would be “making the connection,” which involves the basic construction of the trail

from Granville to Garry. The trail, should it go ahead as planned, will be a four-metre wide multi-use asphalt surface built on the “spine of the former rail bed,” said the report. There were concerns from the public about conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians. However, Redpath pointed out that cyclists commuting to work along the route can use the on-street bike lanes. And in a bid to ensure safety — with thousands of new cyclists or pedestrians potentially being attracted to the route — improvements will be made to the five major intersections on the route, including safer waiting and crossing areas, ditch infill and Redpath setbacks. Wayfinding signage, which incorporates the interurban tram history of the route, is also expected to be part of the first phase. Painting old tram timetables on the ground where the trams used to stop was also one of the ideas given during public consultation. The plan is also for Branscombe House, which is currently being retrofitted, to be used as a pit stop for cyclists and trail users. Of the $2.5-million construction costs, $2 million has been approved as part of the 2013 capital programs budget, $350,000 has accumulated in the city’s trail programs budget since 2011 and a further $201,000 arrived via a TransLink cost-sharing program. Future phases of the corridor might include public art/interpretation, washrooms, bike facilities, community gardens, picnic areas, fitness stations, small play elements and bike terrain parks.

“... there was a general sense of excitement looking forward.”

Several men are facing drug charges after police broke up a dial-a-dope operation. After a six-month investigation, Delta police, with assistance from the Richmond RCMP drug section, executed a search war-

Richard Joly, 21, Michael Galley, 37, Richard Jenkins, 27, and Nickolas Drew, 19. All face charges of trafficking in a controlled substance and Cameron is facing an additional charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Police seek owners of stolen equipment found BY KEVIN GRIFFIN Vancouver Sun

At a news conference, Det.-Const. Phil Ens held up one of the stolen tools: a red and black drill with the first name Fred written on it twice. During the course of going through the stolen goods, Ens said he came across a lot of equipment belonging to “Fred.” “We have one guy we’d love to meet, his name is Fred,” said Ens, of the Vancouver Police Department, referring to goods recovered from two residences in Richmond and Burnaby. Some of the goods were stolen as long ago as 2010. The biggest single category, he said, are tools and construction equipment stolen from independent contractors. Ens said four suspects are expected to be arrested next week and charged with offences that include theft, possession of stolen property and trafficking in stolen property. Most of the goods were stolen in Vancouver and Richmond from houses that were under construction and from garages and vehicles, he said. Ens said police have already been able to

identify about 20 victims. Some of the stolen goods have been returned, but Ens is asking for the public’s help so more can be returned. Anyone with police file numbers or other descriptive details can reach him at 604-7170502. Vancouver police are preparing a series of criminal charges against four men in connection with the theft of more than $100,000 worth of construction equipment, tools, sporting goods and computers. Charges are expected to be laid next week. Ens said one of the biggest frustrations as he stood in front of the recovered goods was that, “They were stealing the livelihood of blue-collar workers who are the hardest workers in our community.” Ens, who works in the Auto Crime Enforcement Unit, said he’s already talked to some of the victims. Many were put in difficult situations trying to meet commitments without their tools and equipment. They couldn’t go out on jobs or finish what they were doing until they dealt with insurance companies or tried to arrange loans to replace thousands of dollars worth of equipment and tools.

Assault charges in a high-profile case against two Richmond brothers is a “textbook” example of mistaken identity, their lawyers told their trial on Thursday. The lawyers for brothers Ravinder (Robbie) Bassi and Par-minder (Peter) Bassi argued in Vancouver provincial court the victims and two witnesses got the wrong men. The identification of the clients was flawed for a number of reasons, they argued. “Taint [of the identification process] looms large in this case,” said Peter Bassi’s lawyer, Michael Klein. He called the victims’ identification of the brothers once they saw them in court “like shooting fish in a barrel.” Robbie Bassi’s lawyer, David Baker, called it a textbook case of mistaken identification. The Bassis were charged with assault causing bodily harm in the June 2010 beating of David Holtzman, who has since died of a heart attack, and his partner Peter Regier outside their Keefer Street townhouse, during which the victims were called derogatory names related to their sexual orientation.

Police had circulated a surveillance photo of two men the victims and two passerby witnesses said were the Bassis. But Baker said the victims admitted during the trial they didn’t get a good look at their attackers during the brief attack. Baker said it was dark and they were under attack and they weren’t able to or failed to describe the men’s facial features in early statements to police. “When he [Regier] sees him [Robbie Bassi] in court, he’s able to describe his face for the first time,” said Baker. And he and Klein said the victim’s positive identification of the accused was aided by seeing photos of them. Holtzman told police he wasn’t able to identify his attackers and admitted in court he would only recognize them if he saw them again. And the lawyers challenged the positive identification by two witnesses, recommending Judge Raymond Low give little or no weight to their testimony. Low’s ruling isn’t expected until the new year.

‘Junkyard’ home inspected eight times BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Sam Tsai’s single-family home has attracted the city’s attention due to its excess of “flammable and combustible materials.”

A homeowner has had his unsightly and unsafe junkyard-style property inspected eight times and enjoyed three extensions on a deadline to clean it up. Sam Tsai’s single-family home at 4640 Carter Dr. in the Odlin area attracted the attention of the City of Richmond’s bylaws department in May of this year. Since then, bylaw officers, Richmond

Fire-Rescue inspectors and buildings officers have been to and from the home a total of eight times, urging and ordering the occupant — Tsai’s father — to bring the yard up to a safe level. During one of the inspections, firerescue referred to the property — which has stacks of household items, plywood, garbage, paint cans, boxes, plastics, toys, bikes and scraps stored under unauthorized building structures — as having a large “accumulation of flammable and combustible materials.”

After contacting the homeowner at his Alberta address, minimal efforts were made over the summer to comply with the city’s clean-up order. As a result, staff recommended Monday to city council that a contractor be brought in at a cost of $11,000, which will be recovered by the property owner. However, a third and final extension — this time to January 15 — was given to Tsai before the disposal company moves in to do the job for him.

Workshops: Focus on the parents Continued from page 1 “We thought this was a perfect time to do this,” he said. “We tackle bullying every year at the association, but this year, we thought we’d make a bigger deal of it.” Stevens said the workshops — the second scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 8 at the RDPA general meeting at 7 p.m. at the school board offices — will enable parents to help their kids understand the pitfalls of social media. “Our focus is on the parents, so that’s why we teamed up with the school district, which has a firmer focus on the kids,” he said. Stevens is pleased to get someone in of the caliber of Miller, who has a vast array of experience on the relatively new issue

of online bullying. Prior to speaking at the Annual Learning and the Brain Conference in Richmond in the spring, Miller, who specializes in social media education and awareness, told the News about the dangers for teenagers. “The reality is that once something is posted on Facebook, it opens the door for anyone on the Internet to see it,” Miller said back in April. “I like to tell kids, don’t say anything online that you wouldn’t say in public.” He said the best approach parents can use is to arm their children and teens with social media knowledge. The first workshop runs from 7 to 9 p.m. on Dec. 5. To register, email stilton@ sd38.bc.ca.

Vengeance denied

A

lot of people won’t be happy that the man at the centre of a high-profile animal cruelty court case isn’t going to jail. Animal rights advocates have made their feelings known about the need for a stiff sentence throughout the court process. That doesn’t make the court’s decision wrong, however. It’s not hard to see why the Whistler sled dog case inspired high emotion. The manner in which a number of dogs died at the hands of Robert Fawcett was horrific and inhumane. That said, there was little to gain in sending Fawcett to jail. As those in court heard Thursday, Fawcett isn’t a monster. By all accounts, he loved the dogs. Faced with mounting pressure and bad choices, he made a terrible one. But he was not motivated by cruelty. Ironically he had hoped to avoid seeing dogs that could not be cared for suffering continued neglect. The sled dog industry — now subject to greater regulation — has much to answer for about how dogs’ lives and deaths turn on bad business decisions. A change making corporate directors responsible for animals’ treatment was clearly overdue. Fawcett will be haunted forever by his actions. His mental health is fragile. Mindful of the emotion provoked by the case, the prosecutor in the case voiced the difference between vengeance and punishment. It’s a distinction that will likely continue to elude many people. But at the end of the day, the justice system did what it could on a sad case for which there was little hope of a happy ending.

CHOICE WORDS

Include, not exclude this holiday season The Editor, This is the season when writers share their views on multiculturalism more often then ever; some in favour of it and some against it. As a citizen of Canada, I have been enjoying the blessings of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms ever since it came into existence. Today, I know lot more about Judaism, Christianity and Islam, even about Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism than I ever knew when I was growing up in India. Though my community where I grew up has several mosques and lovely tall cathedrals, I never had the courage to enter them; I knew I would be thrown out. My curiosity to know what a mosque or a cathedral looked like from inside remained unquenched until I was 23 and 26 years old. Thanks to Canada, a country that encourages people to learn about other religions. However, I must say that even in this day and age, when our leaders are busy going around the world searching for new markets for trade to improve the country’s economic health, I occasionally come across people who are still choosing to remain trapped in mono-culturalism. All I can say to them, “Come on, open your doors and let the soft music of multi-track spiritual freedom flow. Materialism and spiritualism are twin sisters. They are healthier in a home built on mutual appreciation and multiculturism.” Suresh Kurl Richmond

Watch Abbotsford-South next election Election nights are usually exciting events and next spring’s provincial contest should be no exception. But as I sit next to Chris Gailus on the Global set on the evening of May 13, poring over riding-by-riding results, one race may attract more of our attention than others because it’s shaping up to have more drama. That would be the riding of Abbotsford-South. It has the potential to be a genuine four-way race, a rarity in B.C.’s usually polarized electorate. In fact, it could even be a five-way race. The riding is usually safe territory for the B.C. Liberals. The party won the seat in 2009 with more than 58 per cent of the vote. But a number of factors are now at play that have turned this contest on its head and makes it a genuine toss-up, a development that seemed unthinkable just a couple of years ago. First, long-time incumbent John van Dongen, who has held the seat since winning a byelection there in 1995, will be running as a credible Independent candidate (assuming he won’t join yet another party before the election is called). Van Dongen, of course, quit the B.C. Liberals last spring. Presumably, he will attract a fair share of the vote next spring. The B.C. Conservatives will no doubt field a candidate, although given the fact they appear to be crumbling both in the polls and internally it’s unlikely that per-

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

son will play anything more than a spoiler role. And this brings us back to the B.C. Liberals and the party’s controversial decision to let its head office stick its nose in constituency affairs and elbow one candidate out of the way in favour of another. The displaced would-be candidate is local councillor Moe Gill, who had been planning to challenge van Dongen for the nomination before the MLA left. Gill had been working for two years to secure the nomination, and his supporters had taken control over the riding association in the process. But the party’s head office had other ideas and informed Gill he was out, and wouldn’t be getting the nomination. Instead, noted criminologist Darryl Plecas was appointed the candidate over the wishes of the party’s riding executive, who all quit in protest. This messy affair will no doubt cost the B.C. Liberals votes. Gill and his supporters are planning on some kind of revenge. But Plecas, van Dongen and the B.C. Conservative candidate will all be fighting over slices of the same pie now. The centre-right

vote bloc will now be split three ways. The person to benefit most from this unusual scenario is the NDP candidate, Lhakvinder Jhaj, who is no doubt smiling a lot these days. She is now the only Indo-Canadian in the race, which gives her yet another advantage in a riding that has a large Indo-Canadian community. About 9,500 people voted for the B.C. Liberals last time, and about 4,200 voted for the NDP. If the NDP can boost its total vote by about 1,000 people (a safe proposition, given the party’s rise in the polls and the now younger demographic), it can achieve victory if 3,300 or so B.C. Liberal voters either vote for van Dongen or someone else. Given the party’s treatment of Gill, and van Dongen’s own personal popularity, such a scenario doesn’t seem far-fetched. There’s another reason the NDP may be gaining confidence in AbbotsfordSouth. The latest Angus Reid poll shows the B.C. Liberals continue to have trouble hanging onto their supporters from the previous election. About one-third of previous B.C. Liberal voters say they won’t back the party this time around. This all adds up to making Abbotsford-South a riding to watch next May 13th. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Museum for community sports Open letter to mayor and council, Recently, council endorsed a proposal for an Olympic Museum at the oval, another example of how this council has lost touch with the community. Why do we need a $10 million dollar project that celebrates events that occurred only two years ago? I don’t remember having a chance to vote on this proposal as a taxpayer of Richmond. What I do think we need is a sport museum for all community sport and the Olympics in Richmond so that we can recognize how Olympians are developed

and the history of sport is not lost. Community sport is where the local hockey, soccer, swimming, grass hockey, karate, judo, etc. clubs contribute to the development of elite athletes. Council, I also understand that a previous mayor of Richmond was heavily involved in community sport for many years — Gil Blair. In closing, please reconsider your previous decision so that this community can have a local museum for community sport. Chris Neale Richmond

We vote for snow geese

The Editor, Re: “Coun. seeks snow geese cull,” News, Nov. 21. Goose, if you poop in Richmond, you will be chase by dogs, harassed by fireworks, air pistols, lasers, etc. There is even a death penalty for this unacceptable behavior. However, we argue there is a hunting ban in Richmond, and it should be maintained. Is it time to hire goose pooper scoopers to clean up the parks and school yards? The plight of the snow geese is that the

city of Richmond was built on their flyway without their needs being considered. The lack of green space in Richmond is an issue that the snow geese have identified for us by their pooping locations. The annual arrival of the snow geese is a marvel that the city should accommodate and celebrate and not attempt to erase because of some poop. Our taxes vote for the snow geese and not the City’s proposal of culling. Don & Maggie Flintoff, Richmond

Holidays about many religions

The Editor, Re: “It’s ‘Merry Christmas’, not ‘Happy Holidays’,” Letters, Nov. 21. Happy Holidays is much more inclusive of Richmond and B.C.’s

the Christmas season, but the holiday season. So to all my Richmond community, “Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.” Stacey Friedman Richmond

Tourists will flock to see snow geese The Editor, Re: “Coun. seeks snow geese cull,” News, Nov. 21. Richmondites built dykes to dry wetlands, covered bogs with concrete highways and built our homes on this island. The Richmond population grows from 140,000 to more than 200,000 in 20 years. Do the snow geese complain when we are too many and take their homes? We have the Salmon Festival, night markets and tall ship events in the summer time. Why not think about a Snow Geese Festival in the winter and spring to attract more tourists to Richmond. I believe many Canadian families are Pre-K to Grade 12 Grammar

happy to see these Wrangel Island visitors from Eastern Siberia. It is the best opportunity to educate our children to enjoy nature. The snow geese are an asset to Richmond, especially our tourism. I think the City of Richmond and Richmond Tourism have to make a plan to welcome the snow geese and tourists. Like Kamloops welcomes the salmon at Adams River. Like Vancouver creates the Cherry Festival to welcome the cherry blooming and visitors. Like the Northern Lights tours in Whitehorse. Daniel Leung Richmond

‘No parking’ signs make no sense The Editor, On a day when I opened a newspaper to find that a man convicted of killing 56 sled dogs was basically set free, I received a parking ticket for parking in front of my own home on a quiet residential street. The NO PARKING 9:00 - 3:00 SCHOOL DAYS signs on our street were erected decades ago when Steveston High school was a Grade 11 and 12 school and the city didn’t want students parking on neighbouring streets.

Steveston High has been closed for more than five years now, but the NO PARKING signs remain — an almost impossible task for an individual to try and get them removed. I’ve paid the parking ticket — the law’s the law. But somehow, in the big scheme of things, I’m asking myself where the real justice here is. Mark Porter Richmond

Christmas fund drives in Donate in parking lot Thursday, receive free coffee BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

The Richmond Christmas Fund hopes to share the joy of the holiday season once again this year, and this time it’s adding an extra day for registration. Richmond residents, providing the proper documentation for eligibility, now have the opportunity to sign up to receive toy donations and grocery vouchers on any of the 10 days, beginning this Saturday, Dec. 1 to Saturday, Dec. 15. “We added that extra day partly because we’ve seen the need increase,” said Volunteer Richmond Information Services general manager Jocelyn Wong. “But also because we wanted to provide that extra Saturday for those who can’t make the other times.” To kick off the registration period, Lansdowne Centre hosts the second annual Richmond Christmas Fund Drive-Thru event in its parking lot near Lansdowne Skytrain Station on Thursday, Nov. 29 from 6 a.m. to noon. Morning commuters who stop by to donate new toys, books, cash or gift certificates receive a free coffee and McDonald’s muffin in return. If muffins run out, McDonald’s coupons for a coffee and muffin will be offered. Donors are also welcome to hang

around and mingle, as 103.5 QM/FM will broadcast live and there may be an opportunity for some free giveaways. Shoppers can also do their part Thursday by purchasing from businesses participating in The Day of Giving. On this day, businesses involved donate a percentage of their sales to the Christmas Fund. “These events are about community engagement and showing the community how they can give,” said Wong. The fund seeks to remove the economic burden of the holiday season by supplying Richmondites with toys and books for children under the age of 13, shopping centre gift certificates for teens between 13 and 15, and a grocery voucher so each family can enjoy a holiday meal. Despite its name, the fund serves more than 2,000 residents of all faiths and ideologies, and isn’t limited to those who celebrate Christmas. “We want every child to enjoy the season,” said Wong. “So that when they go back to school they’ll be able to tell people what they got over the holidays as well.” For more information on registration dates, to register or to donate, call 604279-7020 or visit www.volunteerrichmond. ca.

ETYMOLOGY

Food labels don’t tell the whole story People buying and selling old art are concerned about provenance — they need to know where the work of art comes from, who previously owned it. As to the provenance IN OTHER of provenance — it’s the Latin “provenire,” to come forth. Provenance, besides shining light on the work of art’s history, helps in establishing its authenticity. It also helps to determine whether it’s been acquired legally or illegally. For years, newspapers have revelled in stories of major museums forced to relinquish works of art because of what their provenance revealed. Also we, the average citizens, are affected by questions of provenance. When we arrive at an airport from abroad, the immigration authorities demand to know from where we’ve come. They even want to know if we’ve passed through other countries on our way. In view of this universal anxiety about the comings and goings of things and people, it baffles me that the Canadian government continues to be button-lipped regarding the provenance of some foods sold here. They’re forthcoming if the origin of

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

A driftwood sculpture soaks up the last of the sun’s rays down by the beach at Garry Point Park, as the next few days are about to get rainy.

the food is Canadian, because then the label reads “Product of Canada,” according to which “all or virtually all of the significant ingredients, components, processing and labour WORDS used in the food product must be Canadian” (but what precisely do they mean by “virtually” and “significant”?). However, many labels state no more than “Prepared for,” leaving us in the dark about the source of the product’s ingredients. Why won’t they tell us? Sometimes the label states the ingredients are imported, but doesn’t divulge the country of origin. Aylmer says its canned tomatoes are from “domestic and imported ingredients.” (Did you know that China is the world’s largest tomato producer?) Another point — it’s not enough to merely read the label, we also have to understand what certain names imply. For instance, the brand Hunt’s (preserved tomato products) is owned by ConAgra Foods, the company notoriously opposed to identifying genetically modified ingredients in its products. Of course, when the label reveals all, it can sometimes lead to head-scratching. Examining cans of the local brand

Western Family, I discovered that their entire range of organic beans are from the U.S.A., as are their cherries and plums. And their mushrooms are produce of China. Don’t mushrooms, cherries, plums and organic beans grow in B.C.? Now, in the so-called bulk food department, there’s a complete blackout of information about the sources. Surely someone at the beginning of the chain knows where the nuts, raisins, spices, etc., come from. Why aren’t we to know? Is it a nasty secret? Sometimes it’s possible to tell from the appearance of the item — I can make an informed guess that the pine nuts come from Asia. What about the other nuts? And the dried fruit? The cereals? Am I the only person who’s become suspicious about their provenance? Naturally, if it’s disclosed that all these foodstuffs parading incognito in fact come from countries with reprehensible health and safety standards, many of us might refuse to buy them. But give us the choice. We have a right (and duty) to know the “fons et origo” (source and origin) of what we buy — be it a Michelangelo masterpiece or a tin of tomatoes!

Exceptions don’t define you

Shel Silverstein wrote a poem called The Zebra Question. It’s one of those short somewhat comical pieces one hears recited at an elementary school speech arts competition. It’s about a child who YOUTH asks a zebra whether he is “black with white stripes” or “white with black stripes.” In this poem, the zebra is more than capable of holding a conversation, and it replies somewhat sassily with an exhaustive list of questions: “Are you good with bad habits? Or are you bad with good habits? Are you noisy with quiet times? Or quiet with noisy times? Are you happy with some sad days? Or are you sad with some happy days? Are you neat with some sloppy ways? Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?” To be honest, the first time I heard this poem in elementary school, I found it extremely tiresome and repetitive. Silverstein had simply compiled a list of opposite descriptions and proceeded to compound them into a poem, he then proceeded to sell it to children. I recently stumbled across this poem again, and it took on a new significance. The concept of identifying our norm and our exception can be important in maintaining confidence and preventing depression. Allow me to elaborate from a teenage perspective.

Anna Toth

It’s currently finals season at university. This means that most people are slightly more tightly strung, and are juggling the added pressure of papers, imminent final exams, and last minute studying. Test results come back and someVIE WS times the mark that stains the top of the page is low enough to burn a hole through the stomach. One test and suddenly questions of my future, my identity, my self-worth flood my mind and make me question every life choice I ever made. Sound familiar? It took this poem to recognize that everyone experiences successes and failures, joy and sorrow, generosity and selfishness to some extent. And we don’t have to feel discouraged when those moments of failure make an appearance in our lives. It doesn’t decrease our value. They are merely the exceptions that everyone is (at least to some degree) familiar with. It doesn’t define who you are. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a perfectionist or not. Bumps and falls along the way teach you the skill of climbing back onto your feet. Our effort is obviously necessary. We have to want to be good students — curious, organized and disciplined. We have to want to be loyal friends. So if we know the commitment and desire is there, we can be sure the “bad habits,” “sad days” and “sloppy ways” are definitely not here to stay. Anna Toth is a J.N. Burnett graduate and currently in her first year at UBC.

Winners and Losers at Gateway Theatre Created and performed by Marcus Youssef and James Long, produced by Theatre Replacement & Neworld Theatre in association with Crow’s Theatre. Youssef and Long, the show’s creators, sit at a table playing a game they’ve made up: Winners and Losers. They name people, places or things — Tom Cruise, microwave ovens, their fathers, rainforests, Druids, etc. — and debate whether they are winners or losers. In pursuit of victory, they turn the game on each other, ruthlessly dissecting intimate details of their own lives. This “stage conversation” is shockingly honest, surprisingly funny and thoroughly unique and engaging. Location: Gateway Theatre, 6500 Gilbert Rd. Phone: 604-270-6500 www.gatewaytheatre.com

Gateway prepares to stage Fiddler on the Roof over holiday season BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News

After directing about 60 productions of various sizes in his 33-year career and helming the performance of The Sound of Music at Gateway Theatre last year, actor/director Chris McGregor returns to Gateway this December to tackle his literally largest project to date: Fiddler on the Roof. “It’s a big production,” he said. “It cost thousands and thousands of dollars to put this together. “There are 30 people involved on stage — 25 of the people are volunteers and five professionals. So that’s a big scheduling nightmare.” Rehearsing in a cavernous abandoned furniture store at Lansdowne Mall in preparation for the Dec. 14 opener, McGregor had the option of redoing the hugely successful The Sound of Music again, but opted to try something new. And even though the tale of the struggles of Russian-Jewish milkman Tevye and his five daughters has been told many times before, the animated 49-year old director said he wanted

his actors to personalize their performances. “We have a fantastic musical director, Allen Stiles, who makes them sound good rather than make them sound like Zero Mostel (the actor who played Tevye in the 1964 Broadway musical) or Barbara Streisand,” said McGregor. “You have to sound like you, make it honest and true.” McGregor added that in his productions the scenes and songs such as “If I Were a Rich Man”, “Tradition” and “Sunrise, Sunset” remain true to the original production, however their approach is new and how they arrive at the end will be different than audiences have seen before. Unlike other adaptations, which have been vague in setting an exact date the story takes place, he chose Aug. 20, 1905 to Jan. 4, 1906. “There’s a very specific reason I chose that time period,” said McGregor. “On Aug. 17, 1905, the Tsar sent out a manifesto that directly influenced what happened to the Jews. “They were persecuted somewhat and people were afraid they would be revolting against the Tsar, so all of a

sudden these large pilgrimages were happening throughout the country and it started this wave to force the Jews out.” Reading books about the Russian revolution, watching old films and researching on the Internet gave McGregor a good idea on the visuals he wanted to present. He and local costume designer Carmen Alatorre were meticulous in ensuring everything appears traditional using lots of time-period-specificlooking wools and linens. For the set design, he compared it to a children’s pop-up book. “It’s playful. There are five houses in the background, risers and then there are these things that pop up that make different worlds. A gravestone pops up on one of the risers, and part of the riser will roll-up and be the bed so it’s all very theatrical.” Tickets are $48 for adults/seniors, $30 for students and $43 for groups of 10-plus. Fiddler on the Roof plays at Gateway Theatre, 6500 Gilbert Rd. from Dec. 12 to 31, to purchase tickets go to gatewaytheatre.com.

My Christmas anti-wish list

PHOTO COURTESY OF MICROSOFT

Don’t get Barry Link a Surface RT this Christmas — he doesn’t want one. Well, maybe he sort of wants one...

Three tech devices I really want, but won’t buy this season As Christmas approaches, new tech products pop up and despite myself I get into a buying mood. But thanks to being raised Baptist and having a journalist’s wages, I usually hold off. Usually. Here are three tech purchases I’d love to indulge in this season, but won’t pull the trigger on. Surface with Windows RT ($519 and up): ❚ Why I want one: I had an introduction to the Surface last month and came away impressed. It’s a portable computer that can be used as both a tablet and a small laptop. The hardware is beautiful, the interface of lively, updating tiles is fun and functional, and since I’m primarily a Windows household, its use of the new Windows 8 is a plus. ❚ Why I won’t buy it: The RT version of Windows 8 that powers the device cannot run legacy Windows software, and its app store is tiny compared to the powerhouse iPad’s offerings. To be fair, the app store is growing, and none of this will be a problem if you simply want to surf the web, watch Netflix and keep in touch with the world through email and social media. But the Surface has rightly been called a 1.0 device that promises to improve with time. It just depends how much time you want to give it. Microsoft will be unveiling the Surface Pro in January that will run the full version of Windows 8. For power users, it’s a better buy. ❚ Why you might want one: Despite the Surface’s weaknesses, many reviewers have called it the best productivity tablet out there, thanks to its inclusion of a free Office suite and covers (for extra cost) that function as surprisingly good keyboards. This could be your tablet choice for serious work. iPad Mini ($329 and up): ❚ Why I want one: I’m not a huge Apple fan, but I’ve always thought a smaller, more portable version of the iPad would be a great buy. Full-sized iPads always look cumbersome when people pull them out at the

Barry Link THE PRAC TICAL GEEK

board room or lunch table, whereas the eight-inch size of the mini is the sweet spot for portable consumption devices.

A bigger screen than a phone, but without having to hold something the size of a dinner plate. ❚ Why I won’t buy it: I bought an Androidpowered Nexus 7 tablet a few months go and adore it. According to reviewers, the hardware on the iPad mini is superior to the Nexus 7, but with a $209 starting price for largely

similar capability, the Nexus 7 is hands down the best current tablet deal in Canada. Sorry, Apple. ❚ Why you might want one: If you really want an iPad, the mini is cheaper than a regular iPad, which makes it a relatively affordable way to access Apple’s excellent collection — the best in Canada — of apps, music and video on iTunes. Many reviewers say the

higher price compared to competing products is justified. A 50-inch television ($700 and up): ❚ Why I want one:

I have a 40-inch widescreen Samsung TV that I bought five years ago. It works superbly and meets my needs. So of course I want a see TVs page 26

Preschoolers visit Cowell Auto Group Alderwood House School attended a field trip to Cowell Auto Group. These students visited all 4 dealerships under the Cowell Auto Group Brand: Cowell Volkswagen, Audi of Richmond, Land Rover of Richmond, and Jaguar Richmond. Alderwood House School is local preschool where students immerse themselves in the learning experience. Through their recent studies the children had shown a keen interest in cars. The trip to Cowell Auto Group encouraged this interest, and focused on learning about the basic features of a vehicle, vehicle safety and

why vehicles are brought to the dealership for service. The field trip started at Cowell Volkswagen for an introduction to the basic features of a vehicle and to learn about vehicle safety, and what better to demonstrate on, but a 2013 VW Beetle? At Audi of Richmond the youngsters got a kick out of hearing the Audi R8’s engine; although by the looks on the faces of the parents, perhaps the adults enjoyed it more. The last dealership to be visited was Land Rover and Jaguar of

Richmond, where the children got to learn about the Service Department. The class had the chance to walk through the Service Department, seeing cars that were in for vehicle maintenance. A likely highlight for the class, was watching the a Range Rover makes its way across the Off-Road Rock Course housed at Land Rover of Richmond. They were able to see how a driver can maintain vehicle control through side tilts and properly navigating steep ascents. Another highlight? Their teacher Mr. Pat going along for the ride.

The exciting and unforgettable visit to Cowell Auto Group came to an end, with the presentation of goodie bags for each child! There were smiles all around on this special day. No matter big or small, everyone on the Field Trip had a memorable experience, not to be forgotten.

You can make changes to a Will in two different ways. One way is to make a new Will, which you can do at any time. A Will should be reviewed periodically to see if changes are necessary. A new Will revokes and cancels any previous Will that you have made. The second way to make a change to your Will is by way of a formal written document called a “Codicil” whereby you can change, delete or add to your original Will. To be legal, the Codicil must be signed and witnessed in the same manner as a Will and as required by the Wills Act of B.C. The Codicil must refer to the original Will that is being amended. A Codicil is usually, but not always, attached to the original Will and becomes a valid part of the Will. The decision is whether to make a new Will or prepare a Codicil. If the Codicil is lost, removed or misplaced, etc., the original Will will stand.

Can TCM help my asthma?

TCM is very effective with relieving asthma. From the TCM perspective, asthma is a symptom that develops with imbalance in any one of the following organs: lungs, spleen, digestive system, liver, kidneys, and large intestine. This analysis would explain why each person's asthma is different. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are very good at strengthening the Lung Deficiency, Spleen Deficiency, Liver Congestion, Kidney Yin, Yang and Qi Deficiency and Intestinal Stagnation. Asthma is on the rise in frequency and intensity, mostly because of our food choices, increased stress, overwork and environmental pollution. When these factors are combined with possible constitutional weaknesses, the body becomes more feeble since it cannot be nourished properly to maintain good function. TCM will be much more effective when combined with food and lifestyle changes.

Sorry, I have never heard of facelift dentures. However, that being said, when we construct a new denture, I never try to make a denture. I create a natural replacement of missing teeth, bone and tissues by analyzing how much bone and tissue has been lost, I replace the loss of bone and tissue with acrylic and proper tooth placement for lip and cheek support. Lifting of the cheeks and lessening the folds of the sides of the mouth is then achieved. The results are a rejuvenated and fresh facial appearance. Precision dentures mimic the movement of the human jaw during eating precisely through the use of precision measurements and jigs. The result is a denture that moves very smoothly and efficiently. Both my precision and standard dentures incorporate the restoration of facial features. You could say precision dentures are facelift dentures if done with the aforementioned technique. If you have any further questions, on this or any other dental related procedures please call us for a free consultation.

The Real Estate industry is changing. With the introduction of realtor.ca, the general public has access to ALL the listings which were previously ONLY available to Realtors®. Technological advances have changed the job of a real estate agent and the Internet has driven huge efficiencies into the real estate market. Today, the amount of time Realtors® spend on many aspects of each transaction is greatly reduced. With 1%, I provide full service for less and still remain profitable.

Insurance EXPERT

Thomas Forbes

Last year a 10 year term was 4.74% and a 30 year amortization was available. Today a 10 year term is 3.89% and a 25 year amortization is available. On a $300,000 mortgage, the payment difference based on todays lower rate and amortization is less than $10!. Talk to a mortgage professional today … home ownership might just be more affordable than you think!

Tel: 604-274-9971 Fax: 604-274-6501 email: tforbes@mardoncampbell.com

The answer to both questions is yes and this is a question we get a lot from our customers. In 2007, precedent from the legal system changed the way in which Strata corporations operate by allowing strata corporations to charge back to unit owners the deductible that the Strata Building Insurance Policy applied in the event of a claim. All strata unit owners, including residential, commercial units and rented units should be checking their insurance policies that they have this coverage as the deductible is usually a minimum of $ 2,500 and goes up from there. We have seen them as high as $ 100,000 for stratas that have had a series of claims especially water damage claims. Strata deductible coverages are often described on the insurance policy as loss assessment or just strata insurance deductible coverages. As always we are willing and able to answer any questions there are on this or insurance topic.

After five years, I feel I bought too small. I am planning on watching Lawrence of Arabia soon via Netflix on my TV and 40 inches won’t cut it for those vistas of sand and sky and Peter O’Toole’s blue-eyed gaze. ❚ Why I won’t buy it: My current TV works well. Buying a new TV after a mere five years of use with the old set feels wasteful. My girlfriend would be appalled. ❚ Why you might want one: Wide-screen televisions have never been cheaper, wider, thinner or more featured than now, and

Pacific Ravens take flight in Olympic Oval

Richmnond Ravens Girls Ice Hockey rounds out its programs by taking on BC Midget AAA Female Hockey League team BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

Instead of resting on its laurels, the Richmond Ravens Female Ice Hockey Association decided to expand its portfolio and provide the ultimate destination for up-and-coming players. The organization was coming off a terrific 201112 campaign that was recognized by being named B.C. Hockey’s Minor Hockey Association of the Year. It was around the same time the Ravens were collecting their hardware that word came down one of the two Lower Mainland franchises in the six-yearold B.C. Female Midget AAA Hockey League was looking for a new home. The Vancouver Fusion were based out of the Tri-Cities area but were being run by the team’s coaches and management. When a number of volunteers from this group wanted to move on, the club’s future was suddenly in question. As a member of the Ravens’ executive and having daughters in the elite league, Glenn Budden knew exactly where the franchise should be re-located. “I told our board there was an opportunity here,”

recalled Budden, now the team’s GM. “The coaches and management had left and they were basically the backbone of the team. When you see the amount of female hockey players in the Lower Mainland, with the numbers growing, there has to be two teams and somebody has to take this on. “The Ravens are all about providing every opportunity for their players to succeed so it seemed like a perfect fit.” It took a little convincing but the Ravens executive agreed to the move. The Fusion were re-born as the Pacific Ravens and the franchise gained immediate credibility when ice time for home games was secured at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The Ravens currently sit in second place in the five team league with a 5-5-2 record. The other Lower Mainland franchise is the defending champion Fraser Valley Phantom. They are joined by the Prince George Cougars, Kootenay Wildcats and Thompson/Okanagan Rockets. The hope is to add a sixth team from Vancouver Island. In the meantime, the Ravens roster has three Island players who

Pacific Ravens assistant coach Perry DeNure talks to his players at the bench.

MARK BOOTH/RICHMOND NEWS

Pacific Ravens Nicole Howlett heads up ice during Sunday’s B.C. Female Midget AAA Hockey League game against the Prince George Cougars at the Richmond Olympic Oval. commute to the mainland for practices and games. That type of commitment suggests just how serious the approach to this league is. The objective is to prepare these players for university hockey by giving them the ultimate environment to develop as well as extensive exposure. The cost for such a program doesn’t come cheap. Raven players paid $7,000 this season which includes travel, accommodations and meals for all out-oftown league games, as well

as trips to Saskatchewan and Calgary for a pair of high-profile tournaments that will be well-attended by university scouts. The coaching is all done by volunteers. The Ravens roster currently features two players from Richmond and the rest coming from as far away as Chilliwack and Whistler. “You don’t always draw the best players,” said Budden, whose eldest daughter played for the Fusion and now is playing university hockey in Ontario. “Some don’t have

the marks or the aspirations to play at the next level. Of course, cost is a factor too. “The biggest draw is the kids getting to play this level at home. They are all committed (to elite hockey) and that’s the biggest thing. They come here knowing their parents have paid a lot of money. They come to play for every game and practice.” The players are doing their part to help out at the grassroots level of girls hockey in Richmond as well. After their practice on

Saturday morning, several Ravens will stay behind to do mentoring sessions with Tyke and Atom age players. “We want the young kids to see this level of hockey and what this team is all about,” added Budden. “Ideally we would like to fill most of the (roster) spots with Richmond girls one day. “Now we can say in Richmond we offer girls hockey from tyke right up to the Midget ‘AAA’ level.” For more information on the Pacific Ravens visit www.pacificravens.com.

Rapids make a spash in provincial capital

Richmond Rapids Swim Club traveled to Victoria to compete in the Island Cup, a meet that regularly produces fast mid-season swimming. A small but strong Rapids age group team was up against some of the best in the province, including a large and competitive team from Oregon and some local Olympians. As a part of their training regimen, 1500m freestyle Olympic silver medalist Ryan Cochrane and Olympian Julia Wilkinson raced in Friday and Saturday preliminary sessions, and due to the magic of circle seeding, a few Rapids got a rare opportunity to line up against them. It began with the 200 backstroke, where PAG1 swimmer Rich Rakchtis attempted to “gutter-ball” Cochrane with a fast first 100. Though the attempt was ultimately unsuccessful, it was certainly a race to remember. However, National Development swimmer Michael Jakac-Sinclair was able to give Cochrane a run for his money. Only just behind at the 50 wall after his best opener this season, Jakac-Sinclair tried to keep pace on the third 25, but Cochrane’s years of distance training gave him the advantage on the back half. Finishing just at Cochrane’s hip, Jakac-Sinclair certainly provided a race that surprised the London Games star. The highlights weren’t only dependent on the presence of a world-class athlete. Brandon Crawford annihilated his 100 breaststroke race in a 1:09.95, qualifying him for Westerns and breaking the Rapids club record for 13-and-14-year-old boys. In the very same race, David Ng made his first age group national standard. Overall, there was some really satisfying swimming for the Rapids, especially for this point in the season. It really came down to the Rapids desire to race, over than their physical preparation. “The majority of the time, big swims in age group swimming come from mental preparation and devotion. It was really encouraging to see our swimmers step up,” said head assistant coach Drew McClure. Top three finishes for the meet included: Austin Berry: 12&U 200 breast (3rd), 12&U 1500 free (2nd), 12&U 50 breast (1st). Sam Bhandal: 12&U 800 free (1st). Brandon Crawford: 13-14 200 IM (1st), 13-14 200 breast (1st), 13-14 100 breast (1st), 13-14 400 IM (2nd). Ryan Murray: 12&U 200 back (3rd), 12&U 1500 free (1st), 12&U 50 back (3rd), 12&U 400 IM (3rd). David Ng: 13-14 200 breast (3rd), 1314 100 breast (2nd), 13-14 50 breast (1st). Richard Rakchtis: 12&U 200 breast (1st), 12&U 1500 free (3rd).

Kendo club shines in Seattle

Members of the Steveston Kendo Club travelled down to Seattle to participate in the annual Pacific Northwest Kendo Tournament. The competition brought together clubs from Hawaii, Mexico, Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, Washington State and the Vancouver area. While Steveston’s group was a lot smaller than other years, the local members still managed to pull through with several awards. Sean O’Sullivan captured the High School Boys Division, while Wendy Robillard was second in the Senior Ladies Black Belt Division. Also reaching the podium was Ryan Murao with a third place finish in the 1-2 Dan Black Belt Division. Leo Leung, David Yao and Paul Lee joined O’Sullivan and Murao to place third in the Senior Team event. While they did not place, 11-year-old Kenta Muramatsu and 16-year-old Brandon Kato Wilson showed great promise and will no doubt be finding success in the near future.
