Woman shot in tattoo parlour Full recovery expected BY ALAN CAMPBELL
Police tape cordons off the area outside Floating World Tattoo after a woman was shot Friday night. Richmond RCMP believe the victim was an innocent bystander.
A woman who was shot while in a tattoo parlor appears to have been an innocent bystander. Richmond RCMP believe the woman, taken to hospital Friday night after the incident at the Capstan Way strip mall, was in the “wrong place at the wrong time.” The woman was said Monday to be in a serious, but stable condition and was expected to make a full recovery. “There is a report going around that the victim has taken a turn for the worse. That’s not the case,” said Richmond RCMP’s Sgt. Cam Kowalski. see Innocent page 4

Major fire safety concerns missing from draft assessment on fuel pipeline plan BY ALAN CAMPBELL
The City of Richmond has demanded a meeting with B.C.’s top ministers to vent its frustration with the review into a proposed jet fuel delivery/pipeline plan. City council is angry that a whole raft of serious concerns over an airline consortium’s plan have been left out of an environmental assessment sent to B.C.’s top ministers. The plan would see fuel barged up the Fraser River’s south arm, stored in tanks near Riverport and then piped through the city to YVR. The provincial government has until Jan. 28 to decide on whether or not to follow a yet unknown recommendation from the BC Environmental Assessment Office (BCEAO). The city has been handed a “table of conditions” (ToC), which accompanied the
actual assessment of the project, but it has not been given a copy of the full report and recommendation. City officials want to meet with Terry Lake and Rich Coleman, B.C.’s ministers of environment and energy respectively, to ask why several requests were excluded from the ToC. Specific omissions, — Lesley which worry city council, include the proponent (VAFFC) supplying and maintaining a fully equipped fire hall close to the tank farms on the banks of the river and the proponent supplying and maintaining a fireboat on the river to deal with any emergencies. “The exclusion of these comments … to the Ministers is substantive in terms of their future ramifications for the City,” wrote the city’s environmental sustainability manager,
Lesley Douglas, in a report to city council. City council agreed Monday to urgently request a meeting with Lake and Coleman to highlight the omissions from the assessment and re-iterate once more its objection to the proposal as a whole. Grass roots opposition society VAPOR — which has campaigned vigorously against the plan Douglas from the beginning — also expressed its dismay to council Monday at having no access to the ToC or report submitted to the ministers. “We asked the city if we could see a copy of the ToC but they were told by the BCEAO that only the working groups involved in the process could see it,” said VAPOR’s Carol Day.
“The exclusion of these comments ... is substantive.”

With educational tools added to ornamental trees and plants, the new Steveston Educational Garden will be more than merely a place to sit back and relax. The inspiring project combining nature’s beauty and education is currently being developed on the lawn east of the Martial Arts centre, next to the community centre’s parking lot. The idea of an educational garden originated from a growing passion for green within the community, said Charmis De Boer, who is involved with the development of the project. “As a result of a growing community, more community gardens have been developed. And I’ve been hearing much more about gardening and the educational component to it,” she said. Once the board approved the plan of the educational garden, it took two years to raise sufficient funds to make the project sustainable. Now in the early stages of elaboration, the garden is located within a walking distance for Steveston residents. The project is charac-

their knowledge of gardening to younger generations, children will be able to see where their food comes from, as well as to learn more about the sustainability and importance of clean eating. Other ideas and learning possibilities will be guided by the interaction of residents along the way. The entire area will be accessible for hikes, wheelchairs and strollers. “It has a solid terrain and the height of garden beds will range from ground to standing level, so it is comfortable and accessible for everyone,” said De Boer. While many have already stepped forward to volunteer, write or teach, residents are still invited to take part in the project, as it will benefit from gardening expertise and the exchange of thoughts and ideas. For those interested in the volunteering program or the concept in general, a meeting will be held Jan. 15 at Steveston Community Centre, from 7 p.m. onwards, to discuss the garden’s future. Volunteer applications can be sent to edugarden@ stevestoncommunitysociety.com.
More than 500 customers and store employees were rushed out of Costco by firefighters on Sunday afternoon after a refrigeration unit started leaking a harmful gas. The store, at Great Canadian Way and Bridgeport Road, was quickly closed after the leak of Freon was discovered by an employee around 4:15 p.m., according to Richmond FireRescue battalion chief Richard Barnes. No one was injured in the process and the store closed for the night, before opening up again as normal Monday morning. “What’s happened is one of the refrigeration units there, the compressor on top let go and all the Freon was emitted into the atmosphere,” Barnes said. “There were no casualties, everybody went home safe and we’ve got a refrigeration repair guy there now.” Freon is toxic to people with heart conditions and can be flammable Barnes said. It is also heavier than oxygen and therefore can sit in an enclosed area like the Costco store, he added. —With a file from the Vancouver Sun

The VAFFC’s controversial plan has been in the works for several years and involves running a jet fuel pipeline along an outlying section of Francis Road, then Highway 99, Bridgeport Trail, Van Horne Way, Charles Street and a No. 3 Road right of way, eventually leading to YVR. The city has little or no power over the project’s approval and has been highly critical of the federal/provincial environmental review process.

Education gets personal, teaching methods evolve BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News
Mention a traditional classroom setting, and most people think of a teacher in front of a blackboard disseminating knowledge to 30plus kids who later need to regurgitate that information on a test paper. Those days are long gone, said Al Klassen, president of the Richmond Teacher’s Association. “Teachers are always in advance of ministry curriculum changes. Educators are the vanguard of that kind of stuff,” said Klassen. “We’re trying to make learning personal to the kids.” Personalized learning was the focus of a recent presentation put together by the Richmond School District and presented to the minister early this month. It was also the topic of discussion at Monday night’s Board of Education meeting. “Each student should have a way of personally connecting with what he or she is learning and how to learn it.” Klassen said it doesn’t mean each child will be taught individually, but having varying instruction for students at different levels of experience. Richmond Board of Education chairperson Donna Sargent said the concept is not new in local classrooms and is being built on.
“We are looking at the individual and seeing what they need to be successful,” she said, adding that advances in technology help. “But that cannot replace a committed teacher who is connected with their students.” This teaching style has been fully embraced by Glyn Davies, a Grade 6 and 7 teacher at Anderson elementary. Well-known for turning his classroom into the dark reaches of space complete with stars and planets, he said the way he and his colleagues have approached teaching has changed dramatically over his 16-year career. “When I taught in another district, it was literally on Wednesdays, you’d teach a subject and the kids all do the exact same, exact questions,” said Davies. “Right now in the classroom we’ve been learning about extreme space. We’ve got level 1 and level 2 ESL kids, kids with different challenges.” With such a varied group of students, he said it is impossible to have a generic lesson plan. Over the holidays, instead of assigning readings from one book, Davies had his kids pick out a book at the public library that was at their reading level. Then, an individual topic and project was chosen accordingly. Davies said the prospect of educational tailoring is scary to some teachers in the ini-
tial stages, but added that there are so many resources available to both instructors and students nowadays. “The world is changing — when I was a Pre-K to Grade 12 Grammar
kid the teacher knew all the stuff. Now these kids leave the classrooms, they’re on computers and have access to a wealth of information and they do extra research. It’s amazing.”

Real estate buyers, sellers take wait-and-see attitude BY TRACY SHERLOCK Vancouver Sun
It appears everyone is taking a wait-andsee attitude on Metro Vancouver real estate, statistics released today by regional real estate boards Thursday show. Both buyers and sellers appear to be holding off, with home sales totals about 30 per cent below last year at this time and the number of new listings down 15 per cent from last December and numbering just half of the properties listed last November in Greater Vancouver, REBGV said. The Fraser Valley saw a drop of 25.4 per cent in sales numbers and a drop of three per cent in active listings from December last year. “The last half of 2012 was like a Mexican standoff. Buyers kept hoping for greater price drops while sellers who didn’t have to sell just took their home off the market rather than lower their price,” said Scott Olson, president of the Fraser Valley’s Real Estate Board.
Realtor Larry Biggar said one of his clients did just that in November. The Richmond home had been for sale for about six months, and rather than lower the price any further, the couple decided to take the home off the market. They are in their late 60s and want to downsize to a condo, Biggar said. He said everyone who went through the home liked it, but that they all seemed to be waiting to see what would happen with prices. “We watched the market slow down, and slow down, and slow down. ... It just got quieter and quieter,” said Biggar, who works with ReMax Westcoast. “Finally they said enough is enough. We really don’t have to sell. We can stall our plans if need be, although that’s not our first choice.” Biggar said the couple will be putting their home back on the market soon, and although they have not discussed the asking price, it will probably be the same price it was when they took if off the market. ❚ Full story at www.richmond-news.com.
Mounties nab suspected drug-dealing teacher Richmond RCMP have arrested a schoolteacher for an alleged drug-dealing offence. The teacher, who works in the Surrey School District, is now facing drug charges after allegedly conducting a hand-to-hand drug transaction near an elementary school in Vancouver. Eugenio Alfonso Bahamonde, 41, has been charged with trafficking and possession of a controlled
substance for the purpose of trafficking. On Nov. 7, officers from Richmond RCMP’s Property Crime Unit & Quick Response Team were in Vancouver in relation to an ongoing investigation. A vehicle approached the area, being watched at the time by plainclothes officers. The officers watched as the driver of the vehicle appeared to make a drug transaction with a pedestrian.
The driver was also seen smoking what appeared to be marijuana. The vehicle the drove away only to be pulled over in a neighbouring parking lot, where the driver was arrested and issued a 24-hour driving prohibition. A search of the car then revealed marijuana and evidence of drug trafficking. At the time of the arrest, Bahamonde told officers he was a schoolteacher.

Ferry tales of woe
s British Columbians start to debate the future of our troubled ferry service, we would be well served as passengers, voters and taxpayers to come to grips with the implications of the decision we face. When public ferry service began in the middle of last century, we were told it was part of the highway system — and that it would be treated as such indefinitely. With the promise of steadily expanding service and subsidized fares, communities blossomed along the coast, growing in size and in economic output in a way they couldn’t have without the fleet. But in recent years, that promise has become harder and harder to keep. The legacy of government mismanagement, skyrocketing fuel prices and a growing debt have made the service increasingly unsustainable. B.C. Ferries has been told to slash runs and find “efficiencies” to make up the difference, but cutbacks alone won’t solve the problem. Boats and terminals continue to age, fuel prices show no sign of retreating, and debt-servicing costs are bound by necessity to rise. Meanwhile, there is little room to push up fares further, as they risk pricing the service out of the market. British Columbians are faced with a bleak choice: Either we put an ever-larger share of the tax pie into our ferries, or we allow our coastal communities to wither — which would itself come at a cost to the economy. The decision is by no means an easy one, but we must at least understand what is at stake before we begin the process of choosing.
Old tunnel has life left in it The Editor, The signs, open houses and news releases by the provincial government indicate that replacing the Massey Tunnel could be in the works. But the smart choice would be to talk about adding a crossing and keeping the existing tunnel. The new 40-km, four-lane highway from Deltaport to Hwy. 1 (South Fraser Perimeter Road) could have a short connection from the new Tilbury connection to the Nelson Road overpass in Richmond, and then to Boundary Road in Vancouver. This would allow commuters to take a more direct route to their homes in Surrey and beyond. The Massey Tunnel could remain unchanged and service primarily commuters in South Delta, which would reduce congestion. We need to be fiscally responsible when considering our transportation needs, and I feel the current public input process is not offering cost effective options. The narrow study of the replacement of the Massey Tunnel should be abandoned, and instead the public should be asked to comment on all options that offer relief of congestion at the Massey Tunnel. I propose the potential connection to Boundary Road in Vancouver be studied and the public be informed of all the options, not just the replacement of a tunnel that has decades of life still left in her.

Protests stuck in idle?
It has received a significant amount of media attention, but will the aboriginal protest group known as Idle No More achieve any significant gains, other than raising public awareness of the pressing problems facing many aboriginal communities? It’s hard to see how it will – particularly if the protest turns into a general protest against the Harper government over a number of issues, or takes on the vaguely anti-capitalist tone that wrapped itself around the Occupy movement last year. If the group engages in such tactics as blockades and such, any public support for it will quickly dwindle and could even spark a backlash against First Nations, which would be tragic because the deeply entrenched problems of poverty and poor health that plague their communities would continue to be shut out of the public eye. And the movement just got a kick in the teeth with the leaked release of a damning financial audit of the Attawapiskit band, whose chief Theresa Spence is engaged in a hunger strike in an effort to meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The audit, however, damaged Spence’s credibility as it uncovered the misspending of millions of dollars in funding. It’s not even clear what, exactly, the Idle No More group is looking for. In any case, whatever comes
Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE
from Idle No More’s protest campaign can’t match the overheated rhetoric that flows from their leaders, who are raising expectations that some kind of miracle is going to occur that will dramatically change the landscape, as long as they simply hold enough demonstrations and stage blockades. And so the realistic actions – negotiations, court battles and the like – may be viewed as some kind of sellout by militants who think they can somehow force the federal government (or any government for that matter) to its knees. Something has to give here, and I suspect it will be the Idle No More movement that loses out. *** It shouldn’t come as a shock that the federal panel holding hearings in Victoria on the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline decided to bar the public from those hearings. The capital city is the political protest capital of the province. Demonstrations and rallies are routinely held on the legislature’s front lawn or steps, and they have addressed all sorts of causes over the years.
Environmental protests are the most common, and there is a local element that can be depended upon to refuse to play nice when the time comes. There have been several violent protests on the legislature front lawn over the years, most notably a nearriot by environmental protesters in 1994, and a more recent homeless camp-cumenvironmental-protest-camp that saw a television cameraman assaulted by one the protesters. Security at the legislature has increased dramatically as a result, and now the building is in lock-down mode during major protests. In other words, the public doesn’t get in, even if the legislature is in session. Just last month, a public meeting held by Kinder Morgan in Victoria to discuss its own pipeline proposal was shut down by protesters, who tore presentation materials from the walls and sat on them, preventing the public from viewing them. So no doubt the federal joint review panel took Victoria’s history of unruly environmental protest (although, to be clear, there have been many peaceful protests too) into consideration when it decided not to take a chance on allowing one its hearings being disrupted or even shut down by demonstrators.

Truth trumps Tory lies The Editor, Re: “Ads attack ethics,” Opinion, Nov. 30. Although this note is late, I want to comment on the editorial about the attack ads on NDP leader Thomas Mulcair. I have become so used to most of the media turning a blind eye to political happenings, it was astonishing to read your comments on the truth behind this Conservative slander. You have redeemed my faith in modern journalism. The position an independent and truthful press holds within our society is vital to its well being. Without it, the press becomes the propaganda arm of whatever agency can afford to buy it. As you said so well, Mr. Mulcair never advocated a carbon tax, and yet the Conservatives continued to state this over and over, knowing it was a lie. The fact that this lie continued for so long shows the lack of truth in their advertising does not bother them. Such an attitude brings to mind Joseph Goebbel’s statement that “if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will come to believe it.” Has politics come to this in Canada? Keep up the good work. I look forward to reading more unbiased truth in your newspaper. Louise McManus Richmond
Healing hospital care puts patients in good hands The Editor, December 24 was the morning I went to emergency at Richmond Hospital. Having a heart beat of 190 sealed my fate that I was staying awhile. So began my week-long adventure in Richmond’s hospital. Allowing time to care is how this facility is directed. From the front doors of emergency to the food cart lady, who I always asked if she personally cooked my steak, I would receive a warm, smiley face. From the cries of a lost soul in the middle of the night came that soft, reassuring voice that everything is okay. From that mistake that I couldn’t make the toilet came the words of reassurance that it was not a big deal. There is a feeling of belonging here. Only words of praise in how things are getting better are spoken. Concern that I may help to make things better for you. This staff is not aware that they are automatically healing people and not even trying. The whole environment is healthy and alive. You couldn’t hand pick a better team. I am so proud of what I experienced from a hospital that I actually miss it. The formula that has been put in place for these wonderful people is one of great success and caring. The 2nd South Wing sounds like a battle brigade, it is, a battle of how we can all learn life’s little steps of healing and happiness. Thank you all so much for one of those life memories. You people are so gifted. And to the people of Richmond, you are in good hands. Mel Athnony Richmond
Shelter supporters thanked The Editor, Today is the second time the Canadian Tire store located in the Coppersmith Plaza on Steveston Highway in Richmond contributed to the St. Alban Extreme Weather Shelter. The donation of cooking equipment for preparing breakfast makes it easier for shelter staff and volunteers to provide nourishment for those citizens who are vulnerable to homelessness. We are very appreciative of this generous gesture to support the shelter, which also provides warm clothing and a warm place to sleep during the cold winter nights. Thank you to the good Samaritans at Canadian Tire and to the other merchants who support the shelter. E. Michaud, On behalf of Inn From The Cold at St. Alban Richmond

Richmond City Baseball celebrating 50 years Local minor association launching 2013 registration drive for players of all ages on Saturday at Brighouse Park
The 2013 campaign promises to be a golden one for the Richmond City Baseball Association. The RCBA, along with its provincial counterpart — the B.C. Minor Baseball Association — are celebrating their 50 anniversary this coming season. Both organizations were founded in 1963 and the RCBA was the inaugural member of B.C. Minor Baseball. The RCBA provides the opportunity for Richmond’s youth to participate in structured baseball programs in the spring and summer. Programs are available for youth as young as five and as old as 25. They range from House League to AAA All-Star. Alumni who have come through the program include Washington Nationals prospect and Canadian national team standout Jimmy Van Ostrand. He found the time to work with Richmond’s top Bantam team last summer. The association is launching its first of three 2013 registration sessions on Saturday at the Brighouse Park fieldhouse. The other two will take place Feb. 3 and Mar. 2 at Richmond Centre. “(This) promises to be a very exciting year for Richmond baseball, not just for our players, but for our coaches, our alumni and parents alike,” said RCBA president Trevor Rennie. “Baseball has a long history in Richmond and we have an opportunity to celebrate the past while we look ahead to what the future has to
offer.” RCBA’s popular grassroots Rally Cap Program is one of the outcomes of the Long Term Athlete Development Program developed by Sport Canada. The goals of Rally Cap program include: create an environment in which children and adults can have fun with baseball; teach baseball skills, rules and strategy to players; model and teach competitiveness with an emphasis on good sportsmanship; and promote increased self-esteem among Rally Cap children and adults. The RCBA has invested heavily in player and coaching development by bringing in professionals to augment the association’s own expertise and resources. “We will be continuing the very successful Rally Cap program this year at the (U5) Blastball level,” continued Rennie. “ The program has been designed specifically for young players and aims to increase interest in baseball.” After hosting two very successful provincial championships in 2012, the RCBA hopes to land the 2013 Bantam AAA Western Championships. The association is also currently applying for provincial and federal grants to match funding already received from the City of Richmond. The city funding is for major improvements at Blundell Field in the hopes that the Western Championship bid will be successful. Corporate Sponsorship opportunities abound during this

In preliminary play, Richmond defeated Hope, Burnaby, and Vancouver to qualify for the championship round. As luck would have it, Richmond met up again with Hope in the semi-finals. It was an endto-end game, between two evenly matched teams. With just over a minute remaining, and Richmond up 3-2, Hope pulled its goaltender but Richmond was able to notch an empty-netter to clinch the victory. The final pitted Richmond up against Surrey in a battle of unbeaten teams. This was a hard fought game from the start, with
strong physical play and a fast pace. It also proved to be a goaltender’s duel. Richmond opened the scoring on the power play and despite excellent chances by both teams, that proved to be the game’s only goal. Mark Cayer was outstanding in earning the shutout, while Kevin Coates was the game MVP. The team also includes Manmeet Dogra, Ben Kiang, Sam Kiang, Nathan Lau, Matt Mah, Nathan Mak, Jordan Moss, Braxton Nomura, Arman Sandhu, Nick Seto, Jocelyn Tang, Justin Uyeno, Darren Whiteside, Alisha Wong and Tyler Yip. They are coached by Grant Coates, Steve Yip and Jim Seto and managed by Mel Mah.
