City plans for social needs of 2022

As Richmond grows so does demand for accessibility, affordable housing and more BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

Special to the News

hat will Richmond be like a decade from now when it comes to providing social services for its residents? A sweeping document compiled by the city intended as a guide to the decision-making process on future social services is designed to answer that question. Called Building Our Social Future—A Social Development Strategy for Richmond, it envisions the Richmond of 2022 as an engaged and caring community. In order to help achieve that, the city is now embarking on getting feedback from Richmond’s host of community service organizations, finding out what they believe will be required as the demographics and needs of the local population shift and grow. It’s quite a challenge, but one the city needs to undertake to ensure social services remain relevant and effective, said Coun. Bill McNulty who chairs Richmond’s planning committee. “This will give us focus and direction of what the city’s responsibility is,” said McNulty. “Too often, people think the city should be doing everything, including the other levels of government because we’ve had a lot of down-

Rotary recognized youth making change Boyd students win top prize in international video contest

BY PHILIP RAPHAEL Special to the News

“I’m just one kid. How can I make a difference in this world?” That question, and the ensuing video explaining just how to effect positive change, won a group of Hugh Boyd secondary students first place in a recent Rotary Club competition for its youth members. The two-minute-36-second long clip was the first Canadian entry to earn top honours in the Rotary International Interact Video competition. It features students from the school club showing how they contributed to a number of charitable and community causes during the first few months of the school year. In one of the early examples in the slickly produced video, a student explains how one can of food can make a difference as members of the Interact Club gathered a total of 850 while out trick-or-treating on Halloween night, and then donated them to the local food bank. Another student asked the question, how can a shirt make a difference? In this case, the shirt was an Interact Rotary shirt that will be worn by a group of club members making the trek this July to the Refilwe orphanage in South Africa where they will donate their time to a number of projects, including mending a leaky roof on one of the buildings. Sponsor teacher Doug Park, who runs the school’s video program, said he was extremely proud of his students, given the international scope of the Rotary competition. “It’s amazing. There were 11 countries on five continents contributing entries,” Park said. “And the key is that this was all from youth, trying to highlight all the great things that their clubs are doing. “And for us to win, first off it’s a huge acknowledgement for the talent and skills our video (program) kids have. But more importantly, I feel, it’s the ability to show the world what great kids we have. These are the things they are doing. These are the things they believe in, locally and

They understand what youth are capable of doing.” For their efforts, the group will receive a certificate and plaque. Plus, the video will be seen by Rotary clubs across the globe. As for the message the video will convey to a worldwide audience, Grade 12 student and copresident of the school’s Interact Club, Shaane Nathu, said it will resonate on many levels. “It will get across to other Interact clubs how we do things here,” said Nathu, who visited the

South African orphanage two years ago. “And generally, it’s not about the recognition we get, I think it’s more about communicating the message of the power of numbers, and being able to actually show other people what’s going on around the world, how we can help, and even though we are students, we can help make a difference.” Mellissa Chao, a Grade 10 student who appeared in the video and will be one of the students heading to South Africa this summer, said she was looking forward to the trip. “It’s a great opportunity for us because we can grow as people and will be able to show everyone what our generation can do to provide for the next.” View the video: www.youtube.com/ watch?v=dhMh8MXaWDQ.

The Conservatives struck again with their “tough on crime” stance. This time, Richmond MP Alice Wong presented a new act at the Minoru Seniors Centre Monday afternoon, which ensures tougher sentences for elder abuse crimes. “Seniors deserve to enjoy the contributions they have made to our society,” said Wong. “It’s our responsibility to protect Canadians and make sure crimes are punished accordingly.” The Protecting Canada’s Seniors Act came into force Sunday, defining elder abuse as “any action…which results in harm or distress to an older person.” Most common types of elder abuse include physical, psychological and financial. It acknowledges that criminal offenses can be especially devastating on an older person, and takes into consideration the impact the crime has on the victim’s quality of life when sentencing. Although specific numbers for Richmond weren’t available, police documented nearly 7,900 incidents of elder abuse Canada-wide in 2009. But only one in five cases are reported and 35 per cent are committed by family members. “We hear a lot of stories from seniors,”

said Eva Busich-Veloso, senior services coordinator for the City of Richmond. “We partner with the BCCEAS (BC Centre for Elder Advocacy Support) to bring education and awareness to centres, and let seniors know where they can turn, including the RCMP. But many are reluctant to do that.” Older adults often become dependent on family members, be it giving Power of Attorney or relying on them for medical care, according to Grace Balbutin, director of social advocacy and outreach programs at BCCEAS. “Sometimes the person in control feels a sense of entitlement,” she said. “That’s how financial abuse often occurs.” However, Balbutin also acknowledged the stresses that come with a lack of funding and resources. Just last spring, Wong’s own Conservative government announced cuts which raised the eligibility age for Old Age Security and Guaranteed Supplement Income. “There’s the sandwich generation that’s both looking after their parents and their children,” said Balbutin. “They can get stressed out and may need to give up a job to provide better care. When that happens, the most available person to take advantage of is the senior.” Minoru Centre continues to increase education through workshops and presentations on topics such as financial literacy.

Continued from page 1 that spot,” Miele said. “Some people also don’t leave enough room in aisle ways in smaller stores, making it difficult for someone in a wheelchair to get through the aisles. “But it’s up to us to provide that type of education so that they do understand.” The provision of adequate and affordable social housing in the future for those with mental health issues is one of the priorities for the Richmond Branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Executive director Dave MacDonald added he’d also like to see enough room set aside for community groups to set up shop, “making sure there is a presence for providing support in the city core.” MacDonald added he understands there is a lot of re-development happening in the No. 3 Road, core area, that could make locating non-profit groups unaffordable. “That’s tough with land costs, but you don’t want these viable organizations pushed out to the outskirts of the community where there are less citizens living.”

Brodie has prescription for unused medication BY PHILIP RAPHAEL Special to the News

If you are having the urge to purge your medicine cabinet of those bottles and plastic containers of old and possibly expired drugs, Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, and provincial health and pharmacy association officials reminded the public there’s a prescription for getting it done safely. Brodie was on hand Monday in Vancouver to help spread the word of an existing, province-wide drug disposal program called BC’s Medications Return Program that allows the public to dispose of the drugs — prescription medications, overthe-counter oral dosage items and natural health products — in a safe manner at their local pharmacy at no cost. Brodie, who is also Chair of Metro Vancouver’s Zero Waste Committee, said roughly 90 per cent of B.C. pharmacies support the program, which has been in place since 2008. According to the Post Consumer Pharmaceutical Stewardship Association, before the BC Pharmacy Association and Metro Vancouver launched the public awareness campaign five years ago, less than 18,000 kilograms of medications were returned to pharmacies in the region. That rose to more than 36,000 kilograms of medications in 2012. So, efforts are improving the situation, and that’s good news for the environment since all the returned medications are incinerated by a professional disposal company. “If you drop them (drugs) into the garbage can, if they get into the landfill, of course they stay in the landfill,” Brodie said. “And you could be causing a problem now or decades into the future.” The same goes with flushing the drugs down the toilet. “You get trace amounts that go through the waste treatment plants and out into the rivers and ocean. So, that would affect the aquatic environment and marine life,” he added.

Woman loses murder appeal BY KEITH FRASER The Province

The conviction of an elderly Richmond woman found guilty of murdering her friend more than 20 years ago has been upheld by the B.C. Court of Appeal. In November 2011, a B.C. Supreme Court jury found Jean Ann James, 72, guilty in the 1992 first-degree murder of Gladys Wakabayashi, 41, the daughter of a Taiwanese billionaire. An initial investigation resulted in no charges, but in 2007, police launched an undercover operation against James. Court heard her confess that she used a box cutter to slit the throat of Wakabayashi in the woman’s Shaughnessy home after discovering she was having an affair with James’s husband. On appeal, James’s law-

yers argued the trial judge erred in admitting the opinions of police that a partial shoe print at the murder scene appeared to be a woman’s high-heeled shoe. The defence also contended that B.C. Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce failed to give proper instructions to the jury about evidence of James’s bad character. But in a ruling released Friday, a three-member appeal-court panel found the trial judge’s charge to the jury sufficiently covered the bad-character statements James made to the undercover officers. The court found that the shoe-print evidence fell within lay-opinion evidence and was admissible to show a potential inconsistency in the confession. Read more: www.theprovince.com.

Brothers acquitted in assault Two Richmond brothers have been acquitted of an alleged gay-bashing assault after a Vancouver provincial court judge ruled Monday prosecutors had not proven they were the same pair who beat up two men outside their Downtown Vancouver condo building. Parminder (Peter) Bassi, 33, and 29-year-old Ravinder (Robbie) Bassi were acquitted of assault causing bodily harm. The charges stem from a June 2010 attack that left David Holtzman and his partner Peter Regier concussed with cuts and bruises. — Vancouver Sun

PHILIP RAPHAEL/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Kenny Choi, a pharmacist at the Terra Nova Save-onFoods pharmacy, supports the new disposal program. Safe disposal also increases drug safety in a home. “Expired medication can pose serious health risks to

individuals if not disposed of properly,” said Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid in a press release about the program. While some drug users are already careful about how they dispose of old medications, there is one important thing all consumers can do to cut down on the build up of expired medications, and that’s to always finish their medications completely, if prescribed to do so by their doctor. All too often, patients either forget to complete their prescribed doses in the time allotted, or start to feel healthier before finishing the drugs and don’t realize the need to finish them, said Kenny Choi, pharmacist at the Terra Nova location of Save-On-Foods, one of the pharmacies taking part in the disposal program. “Another common reason is when people start on a new therapy, instead of getting a small supply to try for a month or a couple of weeks they get the full amount from their doctor — two, maybe three months worth of drugs,” Choi said. “And if the medication ends up not agreeing with the patient, they stop taking it, then end up wasting a lot of it.” More information on the Medications Return Program can be found at www.medicationsreturn.ca.

Hands-free isn’t enough

T

he Mount Seymour Parkway crash that sent a 70year-old pedestrian to hospital this week was doubtless unintentional, small consolation though that may be. Former Apple chairman Steve Jobs talked a lot about inventing tomorrow, and for the generation who increasingly treat smartphones like a physical appendage, his words have a haunting ring of prophecy. Many drivers seem to feel an irresistible need to text, update and tweet while at the wheel, rationalizing that the traffic light is red and this will only take a second. It is illegal to use a hand-held electronic device while driving in British Columbia, but that law may not go far enough. According to a study from Monash University in Australia, using a mobile phone while driving raises the risk of a crash by 400 per cent, whether hands-free or not. Reaction time slows, the car’s speed and lateral position become unsteady, and the driver’s visual search patterns are impaired. Just like an open can of beer is legally required to be out of reach of drivers in this province, cellphones and iPods should probably be in the trunk before you get behind the wheel. The birds will still be angry and your Second Life avatar will still be alive when your first-life avatar reaches his destination. Tomorrow may have been invented, but the way people drive here is enough to make you long for yesterday.

CHOICE WORDS

Rethink priorities, Harper

The Editor, Let me get this straight: Harper’s puppets in Parliament plan to spend $870,000 on a 200th birthday gig for Sir John A. Macdonald, who certainly won’t attend the soirée, seeing as he has been dead since June 1891. On the other hand, this same group of narrowly elected people are planning the closure of the Vancouver Coast Guard Base to save somewhere around $700,000. I guess it shows that the Harperites have more interest in a long dead politician, than in the West Coast Mariners whose lives will be put at risk by this asinine decision. I have a suggestion for this bunch — why not suspend the operation of the Ice-breakers in Eastern Canada and the Arctic, using the same logic, since very few boats will be on the water in the winter, and it would be a great way to save some more bucks. That way, our PM could probably hire a few more “flacks” to add to his already inflated staff. After all, his “image” is more important than the death of a few seafaring citizens! While on the subject, how is it that none of our local Conservative MPs have had the guts to question this decision, but instead continue to peddle the “talking points” established by the self-same PR types in the office of the Prime Minister?

Time running out for B.C. Liberals With the election campaign getting closer, every day becomes precious to both major parties. And because the B.C. Liberals are the ones fighting to climb out of a big hole, any day that isn’t doing precisely that becomes a lost one. So things like the needless controversy by the B.C. Liberals to not re-appoint John Doyle as the province’s auditor-general become an even bigger problem for them, as the affair has used up valuable time in the news cycle. Given the B.C. Liberals’ uncanny ability to cause self-inflicted wounds, the odds are good more will occur over the next few weeks, thus making that boulder they’re trying to push up that hill seem even bigger. The Doyle matter also raises the question about who, exactly, is running the show on the government side. Again, with so little time left to the campaign kick-off, you’d think the B.C. Liberals would realize the need for a cohesive, strategic approach in governing. In the Doyle affair, the premier’s office insisted she gave no direction to her members on the committee weighing Doyle’s future, which seems strange given the obvious political downside flowing from such a decision. That suggests the backbenchers who sit on the committee overseeing

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

the appointment have the unchecked power to plunge their side into controversy practically on the eve of an election, hardly proof a central strategy actually exists. More shoals undoubtedly lie ahead for the B.C. Liberals, not the least of which is the February budget, which will be a tough sell to a skeptical public, still smarting from the dishonest budget numbers carried into the last election campaign by the B.C. Liberals. As we draw closer to the campaign, about the only sign of some kind of strategy coming from government are those relentless television and radio ads, which brag that B.C. stands alone almost in the entire world when it comes to having a strong economy. This ad campaign’s message is essentially the B.C. Liberals’ central message in the upcoming campaign. Twinned to it, however, is another one: the NDP can’t be trusted to form government, and party leader Adrian Dix is the most untrustworthy of them all. And so with each passing day, look for signs of nervousness coming from the NDP camp. Dix is popular (or at least more

popular than Clark) yet he is also relatively unknown and therefore not defined in the public mind. In fact, Dix’s image and public opinion about him may be the single biggest variable in the months ahead. The public’s negative feelings about the B.C. Liberals and Clark have been entrenched for more than a year, while Dix is fertile ground. So expect a relentlessly negative and personal campaign by the B.C. Liberals (and their allies in the corporate community) in the weeks ahead. The campaign may well smack of desperation, which wouldn’t be surprising given the gap between the two parties. The challenge for the NDP may well be to simply hang on and hope the next few months pass quickly, with more hiccups and missteps on their opponents’ than on their own side. So far Dix has shown discipline, and his challenge will be to keep his own team in check. Every week that passes where the focus is on B.C. Liberals’ mistakes is another reason for a sigh of relief on the NDP side. Every week that sees the B.C. Liberals trouble-free may well shift the spotlight on the NDPs. The official campaign starts in mid-April, but the real campaign has already begun. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Solution for BC Ferries Justice shouldn’t defend Niqab Move more cars per trip and don’t run unless a low threshold of capacity is met (at the very least, more passengers than crew). Save on personnel costs with no restaurant/sales staff, and cleaning and maintenance costs on the public areas will cease as well. Anyone who’s been on a BC Ferries car deck knows there’s not a lot of pretty, comfortable and expensive things down there. There doesn’t need to be. Your car or van or SUV is comfortable enough, isn’t it? Tough it out, princess. Add more washrooms throughout the reconfigured car decks for comfort and convenience. Done. I’ve solved the problems. Now, where can I get my $1.3 million cheque, “for turning the BC Ferry Corp. around,” like David Hahn got? He got a huge sum, then quit his CEO post and ran away with an impressive severance package, while we’re left facing some tough questions. Do you think he was worth it? Didn’t our government praise itself, numerous times, for hiring “the best and the brightest” to justify exorbitant salaries and perks? Oh yeah! Indeed they did, many times. And the results are coming in, just in time to reflect on them, before the upcoming election. Geoffrey Filtness Richmond

The Editor, Re: “Veil lifted on fairness,” Editorial, Dec. 28. We are repeatedly informed that the wearing of the Niqab is not a dictate from the Quran. In fact, the Muslim Canadian Congress in October 2009 called for a ban on the Niqab and Burka, saying they had no basis in Islam and marginalized women who wear them. So why are we still treating the wearing of the Niqab and Burka in a religious context? In many religions, men hold all the power and consequently men make all the rules. Their favourite rules usually have to do with the control of women’s bodies. Some women feel pressured to conform to these demands. The decision made by the Canadian Supreme Court on leaving the wearing of the Niqab in Canadian courts up to

judges is ridiculous. This is leaving all the trials involving Niqabs open to appeal from one side or the other, ad infinitum. I have no sympathy for convicted criminals, but until a jury declares the accused guilty, he/she is considered innocent. Defense and prosecution lawyers know all too well when they question a witness their demeanor shows a lot about them. Fidgeting, refusing to make eye contact or their facial expressions can inform a jury of how much credence, if any, to give each witness. Hiding behind a veil claiming religious freedom robs an accused of some of the protection our courts guarantee him/her and is an affront to all we hold sacred in our courts of law.

Hospital parking too high The Editor, I saw on the news that some people were fighting the cost of hospital parking back east. What is so upsetting is that the sick are being penalized and that is not fair. First of all, the person needs help and has no choice, but to be in the hospital. Second, if their family wants to visit and be with the sick person, they have to have a lot of money to stay with the patient.

In our case, just this month, our daughter came to be with her dad. At 1:09 p.m., she bought her day pass, which cost a lot. When she came out at about 6 p.m., she had a ticket on her truck that was made out five minutes after she bought her pass. Also, I bought a second week pass for $37.50 each, and four of the days were paid for that were not used, as my husband was able to leave the hospital early. I paid for days unused.

We should fight the parking at our hospital. It’s not fair to the sick and their families. Jacqueline D’Odorico Richmond

The Editor, Re: “Ferry tales of woe,” Editorial, Jan. 9. The looming crisis at BC Ferries is something we all need to think about. It will affect you, even if you never use them. There’s going to be much less service than we have today and the costs will continue to rise. By extrapolation, our taxes will rise to cover the shortfalls. It’s a sinking ship. My solution would be to gut the ships. Get rid of all the the extraneous stuff like restaurants, arcades, gift shops, lounges and the employees who work those jobs, to accommodate more cars. It was hailed as a continuance of the provincial highway system. Moving cars and people, from Point A to Point B. Nothing more. When did it turn into a mini-cruise ship experience, subsidized by every B.C. taxpayer? I’d assume that most ferry routes are around the two-hour mark or less for a oneway trip. Stay in your car, bring a sandwich and a thermos, get a book or newspaper to pass the time, or better yet, ogle the incredible beauty passing by you. Who decided the BC Ferry Corp. had to entertain and feed us? It should be a vehicle carrier, nothing more. Amenities could remain on the ships running the long-haul routes, like Port Hardy to Prince Rupert.

Calculating the cost of cord cutting in 2012 Personal statistics show conventional cable TV still the pricier option Several weeks into 2013 is a good time to re-assess being a cord cutter in Canada, especially since recent brochures from both Telus and Shaw have landed in my mailbox. Both are begging me to T H E P R AC T I CA L G E E K return to conventional TV,

Barry Link

and both gave me pause. For about a moment. Because despite the extra work involved, a review of my spending on TV in 2012 shows cutting the cord was the smarter financial choice. Here’s what it cost me

in 2012 to watch TV as a highly personal case study. My physical setup changed little and therefore cost little. I have an Xbox 360, a PlayStation 3 and a Netgear Push2TV adapter. The Xbox is two years

old and came for “free” after switching over to Telus for my Internet. The PlayStation 3 is five years old. Both devices have more than paid for themselves with frequent usage and are in excellent condition. The Netgear, which I bought on sale from Dell for $80 early in the year, uses a technology called WiDi to mirror video and audio from WiDi-equipped laptops through to your TV. (It’s similar in function to Airplay mirroring video from iPads and the most recent Macs to the Apple TV.) It’s the only capital expense this year in my setup. My content purchases were divided between subscription services and purchases for individual TV shows. Note that online digital stores allow only for the purchase of TV shows — there are no rental options as there are for movies. I spent $7.99 a month for Netflix for a total of $96. It remained the core of my cord cutting strategy in 2012 and a service I use almost every day. For individual TV shows, I bought season three of “The Walking Dead” ($52), season five of “Breaking Bad” ($26), and season two of “Sherlock” ($20) from what’s now known as the Xbox Video Store. I bought season five of “Mad Men” from iTunes ($32). Buying a season at a time is cheaper than buying individual episodes and I had no problem buying whole seasons in advance because I am a fan of these shows. All the episodes were in high definition — cheaper standard definition versions are available. I spent another $60 getting an Xbox Live Gold membership, which is required to use apps like Netflix, Crackle and Rogers on the Xbox. That’s highway robbery and something Microsoft needs to change if it wants to remain competitive in pricing. It’s an expense I will rethink this year. My total TV spending for 2012 was roughly $286. Compare that to $50

to $100 a month I’d likely be spending with Telus or Shaw to receive a comparable level of choice to what I receive from online digital stores. Cable TV would give me much more content at any one time, but the vast majority of that TV I don’t want and would never watch. What devices did I use the most? In 2012, it was a wash between the Xbox and the PlayStation. I alternated between the PlayStation and Xbox for services like Netflix (and Crackle when I was curious or slumming). On the Xbox, I sometimes used the Rogers app for CBC and CityTV programming and the Disney XD app to find suitable content for kids, although most of the Disney shows are terrible. Curiously, kids care little about quality. I also used the Netgear Push2TV to watch iTunes video and streaming TV such as Canadian network sites like the Comedy Channel (for “The Daily Show” and “Colbert Report”) and the U.S.-only Hulu service for a variety of shows like “Saturday Night Live”, “The Office” and the unlamented “Terra Nova”. Getting Hulu to work required a VPN service, which I’ll cover in a separate column. I also rented perhaps a dozen movies from the Xbox and PlayStation video stores. The cost for high definition versions ranged from $5.99 to $7.99, and their cost was offset by gift cards from Christmas for these two stores. Finally, I used an oldfashioned $15 antenna to watch the occasional news show and hockey on CBC, the only channel I receive reliably over the air in my part of Vancouver. This was all free. When it came to major international news events like the earthquake in Japan and the American federal election, I turned to Al Jazeera, which is one of the few news networks to offer live English-language news broadcasting online. And it’s free. Barry Link is the editor of The Vancouver Courier.

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

No, you didn’t just miss a big snow fall. This white stuff is around most of the year, which is a good thing for Iris Tung, 2.5, who enjoys playing in the ice shavings behind the Minoru ice rink.

Learning to wonder There is a local jewelry designer named Andrea Waines who is known for hand stamping inspirational quotes onto small prisms of sterling silver. These small bars are unobtrusive, simple and YOUTH quiet to look at; one must look carefully to read the print embedded in the metal. I stumbled across one of these necklaces recently. The message branded modestly along the slim surface was: “Wisdom begins in wonder.” The phrase struck me for more than one reason. First of all, one doesn’t come across the word “wisdom” very often. It has a somewhat archaic, philosophical connotation that makes it appear inaccessible to a lot of young people. Secondly, wonder is a state that’s often associated with temporary childhood innocence and naivety; a curiosity that springs from a place of mystified ignorance that often fades as people grow up. But somehow, in that moment, I saw a depth and beauty in the phrase that I didn’t brush off as cliché or trite. My first interpretation was that people absorb information better when they’re interested in the topic. For instance, the small details mentioned in a conversation with our friend sometimes stick far better than the content our history teacher stressed over and over again. Phrased another way, curiosity leads to intelligence. If we’re learning because we want to and not because there’s a test next week, the process is so much more effortless and natural.

Anna Toth

But Socrates’ words reach deeper than that. No one can force us to wonder. No one can force us, or teach us to care about a topic we’re not interested in. It has to be something that comes from VIEWS — as cheesy as it sounds — within. Granted, it’s a tough thing to talk about with the presence of the smartphone and the Internet. As information and tools become more and more accessible, we are allowed to become more and more passive. We are never curious for long any more because it takes less than a minute to look something up online. From food, to geography, to books, to people... any answer we could possible need is ready and waiting. According to the dictionary, to wonder means “to be filled with admiration, amazement, and awe” or “to think or speculate curiously.” That’s powerful stuff. Wisdom begins in wonder. So in school (during those classes that may seem irrelevant), or at home as your younger siblings tell you for the hundredth time the story about “that time...” maybe it’s not a matter of forcing yourself to listen and respond, maybe it’s simply finding a reason to be curious... a reason to be filled with admiration, amazement and awe. Socrates lived a long time ago, but his quote is as relevant today as it ever was. Anna Toth is a J.N. Burnett graduate and currently attends UBC.

ZIPLINING

Gaining new respect for Ironman in Puerto Rico BY D ONNA Y UEN Special to the News

“You are going to fly,” the park guide says with a grin. I enthusiastically raise one arm high in the air. “Yes! Like Superman!” “No. More like Ironman — arms by your side, head first like a human missile at 120 kilometers per hour!” I gulp, hesitate for a second, then smile and say, “Okay, let’s do it.” This zipline has been affectionately named The Beast, as it is one of the highest ziplines in the Western world. At 260 meters high and 1446 meters long, this sport is definitely not for anyone who fears speed or heights. Located only an hour from San Juan, the Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park in Puerto Rico offers a variety of heart-pounding aerial adventure activities. The large ecotourism park is 316 acres in size and has challenges for all levels of fitness: ziplining, traditional rappelling and open-air rappelling, a series of hanging bridges, and mountain biking. Visitors seeking an extreme adventure will not be disappointed. To begin with, the guides introduce me and a group of travel writing colleagues to three ziplines and a series of wobbly suspension bridges. With each plank hung individually from a cable, at a height of approximately 40 metres, these bridges that criss-cross the nature park are tricky. Hesitant and cautious, I step onto the first board as it swings beneath me. Sweat streams down my face, and I frantically grab the safety line to balance myself while swinging in the air. I had no idea that I would be trying out for a Cirque du Soleil gig on this extreme sport adventure trip in Puerto Rico. The second bridge is made up of narrow moving planks that are half the width of my foot; I find it surprisingly easy despite the

fact that the boards are swaying. When I arrive on the third, my heart really begins to race as I approach our guide who is standing next to a hole in the middle of the bridge. I look at him and then through the hole to the forest canopy, far, far below. “Oh, no!” “Oh yes! Here is where you go down. Welcome to open-air rappelling!” “Open-air rappelling?” In an attempt to stall the inevitable I ask, “How high are we?” “About 40 metres up.” Even though I know there is no turning back, I try again. “Seriously? You are going to drop me through this hole to the ground?” “Yes, here is where you go down,” he says, and hooks me onto the safety line as I hold onto the rope with a death grip. Now dangling through the hole in the bridge, I look up at him pleadingly. “Don’t worry,” he says shaking his head. “Trust me, we can’t afford to lose a journalist, it is bad press!” Looking down, he smiles at me and adds, “Let go.” Reluctantly, I do and begin my rapid descent. The ride is invigorating. I break through the opening in the trees, and a series of small waterfalls welcome me as I approach the ground. I land on the mossy forest floor unharmed. After surviving this thrilling challenge, I figure I am ready for The Beast. It is a misty, overcast day in Puerto Rico by the time we reach the top of the park. As the guide checks my safety gear, the cloud cover is just beginning to dissipate and the scene before me unfolds. Surrounded by the beauty of nature and a copper-coloured river flowing below, the view is stunning.

Propelled in a horizontal position, this zipline is unlike any I have tried before. After the guide confirms I am secure, he lets go. I pierce the misty fog as the wind rips through my hair. The carabiner whistles along the cable at lightning speed as I glide effortlessly downward. Like an exuberant child, I shriek with joy. From peak to peak, the ride is not long enough!

Rethink the way you invest

Most people never achieve their financial dreams. Why? In many cases, it’s because they never understand how long-term wealth is created. They assume that investment success depends on picking a hot stock, findWEALTH ing an all-star investment manager, or avoiding market downturns. What we’ve found though is that the harder we try to beat the markets, the more we fail. This applies to most individual investors as well as to professional money managers. Although the financial services industry provides an abundance of great services, its very existence depends on the illusion that every player has built a better mousetrap. When you think about it though, it is entirely illogical to think that the players can beat the averages. After all, they all form the averages and, after the often excessive costs they extract from your portfolio, at least 80 per cent of them underperform their benchmarks. In reality, the blueprint for success is simple and straightforward. You must rethink your notion of investing and take a different approach, which involves understanding markets and harnessing their power, knowing yourself as an investor, and working your investment plan. When rethinking the way you invest, you may need to swallow your pride. Don’t worry, it happens to the best. In reply to a criticism during the Great Depression of hav-

ing changed his position on monetary policy, the economist John Maynard Keynes said, “When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?” In the coming months, I will be addressing 10 key SMARTS investment principles that will help you improve your odds of having a successful investment experience. Allow me to give you a short preview. Understanding the markets is the first key and involves letting the markets work for you, knowing the risks that are worth taking and committing to investing, not speculating. Once understood, we will discover how to harness the power of the markets by holding multiple asset classes, practising smart diversification and keeping costs low. Along this journey it is essential to know yourself. In our media-spun world, we cannot confuse entertainment with advice and we must manage our emotions and biases. Finally, we will finish up our series by helping you to avoid the most common investment mistakes and the importance of sticking to your long term plan and staying the course.

Are you happy with your life? If you are, congratulations! A cynic would say, “Enjoy it while you can. It won’t last.” Life can be a rollercoaster ride of high and low points, successes and failures, good fortune and bad luck. It’s natural to react emotionally to those ups and downs in school, family circumstances, work, finances, health and relationships. We all feel grief with the loss of friends and loved ones. We feel down when we lose a job or feel lonely. We can feel anxious when the future seems uncertain and our lives feel out of our control. Sometimes we can get stuck in a negative emotional state, such as depression and anxiety. Our emotions may then limit our range of thinking, and it is our thoughts that shape the lens with which we see the world. Have you ever met someone who was chronically happy? I don’t mean euphoric, manic or unrealistically optimistic, but rather content and at peace, positive and engaged in life. They’re not on drugs and they haven’t necessarily had easier lives than the rest of us. The difference is the lens with which they see their lives. We can get stuck in the

negative aspects of our situation — the shadows of reality. Lost in this darkness, we see no light. It shapes our mood and our sense of control. It limits our behaviour; we continue to walk only in the shadows not realizing that venturing out of them — a few steps at a time — can profoundly change our perspective. The chronically happy see their reality with more subtlety and perhaps more creativity. Knowing that our thoughts shape our feelings, they choose to see the positive in their circumstances — what they can control. What each of us can control, regardless of our circumstances is how we think and what we do. Knowing this returns the locus of control to us. The world is a little less hostile, unpredictable and dark than it first appears. We can examine the way we are thinking — about our work, school, relationships and our selves, and ask, “Is this way of thinking making me feel better? “Is it helping to improve my circumstanc-

es? Is it moving me to positive action?” That last question is key because the flip side of a negative emotional state . . . is a goal. That realization can be a transformative insight. If you’re not happy with your life and you feel stuck, what can you do to make things better? What is your goal? If you feel lonely or anxious in different social situations, your goal might be to meet more people, make more friends and feel more at ease and confident. If you feel anxious or worried about many things, your goal might be to feel relaxed and at peace. If you feel down, your goal may be to be happy or content. The next steps would be to engage in more activities that you enjoy and hang out with people who make you feel good about yourself. Today, what small steps can you take towards your goal? If you remain stuck in the shadows and can’t find your way out alone, talk to your family physician or another mental health professional. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician and writer.

Eight and counting for streaking Sockeyes

Pacific International Junior Hockey League’st hottest team does little at roster deadline, adding depth for playoffs BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

Eight and counting. That’s all that’s needed to know why the Richmond Sockeyes did so little at the Pacific International Junior Hockey League’s roster deadline last Thursday. Richmond did add some depth and toughness to its blueline by acquiring 18-year-old Eben Norman from the North Delta Devils for future considerations. The rest of the line-up will remain intact as the Sockeyes steam towards next month’s playoffs, riding an eight game win streak that includes victories this past week over North Vancouver (8-1) and North Delta (3-1). General manager Richard Petrowsky’s work was done well before last week. Back in November, he added needed experience to the back end by acquiring local product Adam Nishi and Trevor Stack. The offence then received a significant boost when the club’s 2010-11 leading scorer — Jake Roder — opted to take a semester off from the University of Victoria and rejoin the Sockeyes for his final year of eligibility. Roder’s return coincides with Richmond’s current win streak. He has compiled 16 points, including eight goals, over that stretch. “Our significant moves were adding Stack, Nishi and Roder,” said Petrowsky. “That’s three pretty big guys to put into your line-

up. Jake wanting to come back was a pleasant surprise and I knew what he was capable of.” Roder gives the Sockeyes a whopping eight forwards who are averaging a point-per-game or more, which is easily the most scoring depth in the PIJHL. It also means a nightmare for opponents when it comes to line match-ups. “We like where we are right now,” added Petrowsky, who also filled a void in net earlier this season when he picked up William Lattimer from Mission after Payton Lee joined the Vancouver Giants on a full-time basis. Norman, listed at 6-foot-4 and 195-pounds, had a team leading 87 penalty minutes with the Devils. Richmond returns to action Thursday when North Delta visits Minoru Arena at 7:30 pm. Icing... • Goaltender Kootenay Alder, defenceman Dominic Centis and forwards Jeremy Hamaguchi, Daniell Lange, Sam Chichak and Dean Allison suited up for the Tom Shaw Conference Team in Monday’s PIJHL All-Star Game. The Shaw all-stars scored 10 times in the third period to pull out a wild 17-13 victory •The line of Hamaguchi, Rudi Thorsteinson and Roder had a big night against North Vancouver, combining for 12 points. Hamaguchi had a hat trick, while Thorsteinson added a goal and four assists.

Steveston-London hosting Carkner Classic hoop tourney The Steveston-London Sharks senior girls basketball team will be getting a steady diet of potential playoff opponents when it hosts the Fourth Annual Bob Carkner Memorial Classic, starting Thursday. The eight-team draw is chock full of Lower Mainland schools, including two each from Burnaby/New West and the North Shore leagues. The Sharks open play against Burnaby’s Byrne Creek at 3 p.m.

A win would set-up a Friday night (7 p.m.) semi-final match-up against Riverside (Port Coquitlam) or West Vancouver. The other side of the draw features Burnaby South and Carson Graham — along with a pair of Richmond schools — McMath Wildcats and Hugh Boyd Trojans. The Wildcats (4-0) and Sharks (2-0) are the only remaining unbeaten teams in the Richmond league. Burnaby South defeated Steveston-London 62-51 in the opening

round of the Telus Classic back in early December. The Rebels are 10th in the latest provincial “AAA” rankings. The final tips off at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Meanwhile, the Sharks and Hugh Boyd Trojans could be adding to their long rivalry in this tournament on the boys side, dating back to the days when it was known as the Purple and Gold Classic at Steveston High.

Connaught skaters head to nationals with high hopes BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

It’s a competition within a competition that will determine if Mitchell Gordon will be handed a plane ticket to Italy at the conclusion of this weekend’s Canadian Tire National Figure Skating Championships in Mississagua. The 16-year-old Connaught Skating Club member turned heads a year ago when he stepped up to the junior men’s level at nationals and won gold. Now he makes his debut in senior men’s where he is not expected to be a podium threat but there still will be plenty at stake. Perform well enough in front of Skate Canada officials and Gordon will be skating for his country at the World Junior Figure Skating Championships next month in Milan. It’s a goal that’s well within reach, according to his coach Keegan Murphy. Although Mitchell did go on to represent Canada at international junior grand prix events, including a pair this fall, it will take a couple of good skates in the most high-profile division to earn his first world invite. “Mitchell is so ready for this

From dealing with the media to skating on national television, this is

going to be new to him and we want him to soak it all in. “He has most definitely skated well enough this season to get an invite (to junior worlds) and it really comes down to three or four guys in senior and junior competing for the spots.” Gordon is part of the largest

contingent of skaters Connaught is sending to nationals since Murphy took over as Director of Programs at the Richmond club. Kurtis Schreiber (Novice Men), Larkyn Austman (Junior Women) and Shawn Cuevas (Junior Men) are also back east after qualifying at Skate Canada Challenge.

“We have never had this many skaters before skating at this high of level,” said Murphy. “It’s a group of athletes that keeps getting better and better and there pushing each other too. Austman continues to make a strong impression in her first season at junior women’s, winning her division in Regina. Her progress is ironically similar to what Gordon accomplished in 2012. “It’s been an incredible start to her year,” added Murphy. “Just like Mitchell, we’re not concerned about her result but rather skater to her ability and potential. The rest will take care of itself. “This will be Kurtis’ first nationals and a top 10 finish would be fantastic for him. More importantly, we want him to come away from this with something he will remember for the rest of his life.” “The great thing about Shawn has been his consistency this season. His performances in competition have been 90-95 percent to what he is doing in training. That was a big hurdle for him.” The Canadian Championships will be televised on TSN and CTV, starting Friday and wrapping up on Sunday afternoon.
