Police probing human remains find Nature of the grisly discovery on the west dyke means skeleton could be years old
For the families’ future
BY ALAN CAMPBELL
MLA Linda Reid signed off on the transfer of land in the city centre to a housing society for it to build six affordable singlefamily homes.
Police are investigating the discovery of human remains in a remote marsh area of Richmond. Richmond RCMP received a report around 10 a.m. Saturday that the remains, believed to be skeletal in nature, were found on the west dyke near Blundell Road. Police say a work crew surveying the area located the remains and immediately called police. With the assistance of the Coast Guard, investigators made their way to the area and such was the apparent age of the skeleton, police suspect it has been there for some time. The immediate area was secured and a coroner on the scene said the skeletal remains do not appear to be recent.

Election heats up with Mountie, transit operator
BY ALAN CAMPBELL & YVONNE ROBERTSON email@example.com
The Richmond Centre riding took another twist Friday when Mountie Gary Law announced he will run in May’s provincial election as an independent candidate. Law, a Burnaby corporal who’s devoted decades of service to the local community as a Richmond resident, was being lined up to run for the Liberals in departing Rob Howard’s patch. But in controversial circumstances, the Liberals pulled Law’s nomination and the police are investigating claims he was threatened by texts and calls demanding he pull out of the nomination process. The Liberals have, instead, installed media executive Teresa Wat into the hot seat for the election. On Friday, Law released a statement to the media, saying he recognizes the added challenge of being an independent but said that, with the support of the community, he will accomplish his “long-term personal goal, and that is to serve my community, my province and my country.” He said, if elected, he would pay close attention to Richmond’s emergency preparedness for disasters, juvenile delinquency and affordable housing for seniors.
“With your support and participation, and with your vote, we can have hope and hope will bring change,” said Law. Law urged the public to join his team in the run up to the election. Meanwhile, the NDP have nominated Richmond resident Gian Sihota as the Richmond-East candidate to take on long-standing Liberal MLA Linda Reid in the provincial election. “I’m excited to bring positive change to the people of Richmond-East,” said Sihota, a transit operator who’s been the president of the Richmond-East NDP constituency association for the past 14 years. Sihota, a strong advocate for human rights and the protection of farmland, plans to focus on traffic congestion in Richmond-East, particularly the infamous Massey Tunnel and Highway 99. He spoke about giving the city more control over protecting farmland and encouraging residents to buy local produce to help local farmers. “It’s the province that has the power to change the law to make sure we don’t lose any more farmland,” he said.

This is for the future babies: Reid Provincial land given up for affordable family homes
BY YVONNE ROBERTSON
The B.C. government transferred a piece of Richmond land to the Habitat for Humanity Society of Greater Vancouver in an effort to turn a 25,000-square-foot plot of overgrown weeds and twigs into six affordable new homes. “It’s about the babies in our community, those who are coming after us,” said Richmond-East MLA Linda Reid, as she stood on the plot at 8180 Ash St. “We’re building a livable community for them.” The transfer allows six families to become first-time homeowners through the Habitat for Humanity program, which provides safe and affordable housing. Families invest 500 hours of their own labour (called “sweat equity”) into the building of the home in lieu of a down payment and are financed with affordable, no-interest mortgages. “We’re offering a helping hand, not a hand out,” said Tim Clark, the society’s interim chief executive officer. “The partner families are empowered through home ownership.” The City of Richmond is currently working on the permit process, which will hopefully be finished by May or June, according to Reid. The city would also need to consult the public, particularly surrounding residents.

MLA Linda Reid and Habitat for Humanity’s Tim Clark at the official land transfer. However, during her own discussions with the public, Reid found feedback to be unwelcome and intolerant — a common reaction from residents, which has halted affordable housing developments in the area in the past. “We need to do better than that,” said Reid.

B.C. ministers delay jet fuel delivery decision Government needs another month to mull pipeline fate
BY ALAN CAMPBELL
The saga of the jet fuel delivery and pipeline proposal will rumble on for another month after the B.C. government extended the decision deadline. Environment Minister Terry Lake was due to decide last week on whether or not to issue an environmental certificate for an airline consortium’s plan to barge jet fuel up the Fraser River, store it in giant tank farms and then pipe it through Richmond to YVR. But Lake’s office, instead, issued an extension order, giving a new deadline date of Feb. 25 to determine the fate of the Vancouver Airport Fuel
Facilities Corporation plan. The government’s Environmental Assessment Office issued a statement to all parties concerned on Monday saying “the ministers felt that they needed more time to assess the information they have available to them before they make the decision about whether or not to issue an environmental assessment certificate.” Grass roots campaigners VAPOR, who’ve protested vehemenently against the plan from the outset, said they were neither encouraged nor discouraged by the extension. Even though the delay could mean the min-
ister genuinely needs more time to consider, VAPOR is skeptical that it may just be a chance for the proponents to bolster their case. “VAPOR is neither disappointed nor encouraged by this further delay in that we have steadfastly maintained that this review, which is to have been done in harmony with Port Metro Vancouver (an agency that will benefit from any approval), is a less than proper federal/provincial joint review process and above all has greatly tried to ignore the concerns and interests of local governments and especially that of the public,” see VAPOR page 4

frustrated at having little or no say in the project’s approval, as it doesn’t have jurisdiction on the matter. This was compounded late last year when it became apparent that, assuming the plan was approved, most of the city’s recommendations to mitigate potential dangers were largely ignored in the environmental review handed to ministers.

Richmond Public Library received an infusion of Curious George, Dr. Seuss, and other classic books, when 3,200 children’s titles were added to the collection in time for Family Literacy Day last Sunday. Shelley Civkin, communications officer at the library, said the books were purchased with funds from the annual $400,000 provincial grant. “We’re always needing to add to the children’s collection — things go missing, books get donated. It’s such a hightraffic collection, it was time to buy more classics and more popular books for kids of all ages,” said Civkin. On Jan. 25, Richmond MLA John Yap, was at the Brighouse library on behalf of the Ministry of Education to proclaim Jan. 27 Family Literacy Day. Fellow MLAs, Rob Howard and Linda Reid were also there to perform readings. “It’s a great event. We were able to read to kindergarten children who were excited by the event and the chance to check out the brand new books,” said Yap.

Rifle brolly prompts police guns BY BRIAN MORTON Vancouver Sun
A Richmond mother is angry that her special needs son was sold an umbrella that looked so much like a rifle police confronted the young man with guns drawn. Alana Grossman is not upset with the police - she believes they had no choice but to draw their weapons, because they believed her son had a real rifle - but can’t understand why such items are sold in the first place. “Someone called police, and rightfully so,” said Alana Grossman, whose son, 21, was delivering newspapers on Nov. 16 on a Richmond street, on Thursday. “They showed up, pointed four guns at him, and asked him to put it on the bench. But he was at risk and could have been killed. They took it away and there were no charges. “But I back the police 150 per cent,” added Grossman, who was only told about
the incident Wednesday night by her son. “They shouldn’t take chances and they have to be as cautious as possible. “But I need for people not to sell this stuff. My anger is with my son and those who sold it to him.” Grossman said she knew her son had bought the rifle umbrella a few months ago at the Richmond Mind Games store -— which has since closed — but forbid him from taking it out of their house. Nevertheless, he took it with him Nov. 16 while delivering papers and someone called Richmond RCMP, believing it was man on the street with a real gun. “We received a report about a male with long-barrelled rifle over his shoulder,” said Cpl. Sherrdean Turley, media relations officer. “The appropriate action was taken and he (Grossman’s son) was asked to step away. They found out it was an umbrella in the shape of a gun.” Full story at www.richmond-news.com.

Leave no stone unturned
t’s not a new idea, but it’s one that’s floating around with increasing regularity: would the Lower Mainland be better served by a regional police force? As it stands today, a half dozen cities have their own independent departments. The rest, including Richmond, are served by RCMP detachments. The disconnect between these various bodies was just one of many points raised in Wally Oppal’s report on the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry in December. Vancouver police chief Jim Chu brought the question back to the front pages this week with a response to Oppal’s report in which he backed the concept of a Greater Vancouver force. To many, it’s a black-and-white question, with just one solution: you either come together as one force covering the entire zone, or you leave things as they are, with different approaches in different cities. In truth, there’s a spectrum of possibilities: how about one force for north of the Fraser and one for south of it? Or, three forces running from west to east; and the third taking the Fraser Valley portion up to Hope? Alternatively, why not leave the departments as they stand now but create sub-units specifically aimed at creating collaboration — like the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team — in which police members from different areas could come together across city lines to work on common projects and efforts? The only solution that should be dismissed outright is the one currently in place: ignore the debate till it goes away.
Vote for community reform The Editor, Re: “Municipalities need greater say,” Letters, Jan. 23. Thanks Kathy for raising an important concern that strikes at the heart of many contentious local issues. With reference to the jet fuel pipeline, Kathy accurately states that the city, “does not have the jurisdictional ability to deny the project.” How right you are. Unfortunately we see this time and again including the dumping of waste on local farms. Richmond city council tries hard to balance all needs in making decisions in the best interests of our community only too often to have provincial or federal jurisdiction superseding that of our local municipal government with dire consequences for locally important issues. It’s time for residents to ask Liberal and NDP Candidates where their parties stand on giving municipalities greater say in local issues. The Green Party of B.C. is committed to decentralizing decision-making and to expanding the authority of local governments. It’s called community-based reform and local governments will be strengthened with expanded authority and resources. This fresh approach will go a long way to resolving the many community-based conflicts that involve residents, businesses, farmers and others at the local level. If residents want change, they need to vote for change in May! Jerome Dickey Richmond-Steveston candidate Green Party of B.C.

History choice will determine election Welcome to the 1990s. That, at least, is where the B.C. Liberals and their supporters want to take you if you’re considering voting for the NDP in May. The first of what will likely be many so-called “attack” ads has hit the radio airwaves, and it focuses on three issues that arose during the NDP’s time in government during the 1990s. One of the issues – using only unionized labor to build the Island Highway – is somewhat obscure and probably not even remembered by a majority of voters. More familiar is the second issue: the fast ferry fiasco, which saw the NDP spend almost $500 million on three useless ships. But it is the ad’s third issue that, while no doubt largely forgotten by most British Columbians, may be more of a wild card than other issues. This is the socalled “memo to file” incident that continues to dog NDP leader Adrian Dix. The story goes back to 1999. Dix was at that time chief of staff to thenpremier Glen Clark, who became ensnared in an RCMP investigation into an application for a casino licence by someone who had a personal connection with him. After the RCMP, armed with a search warrant, raided the premier’s home, Clark produced a memo written by Dix that suggested the premier had nothing to do with the casino application. It later emerged that
Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE
Dix had “backdated” the memo to bolster the argument that Clark was not involved. Essentially, he concocted a misleading document which became part of a police investigation. Dix resigned his position as Clark’s chief of staff shortly after. I suspect the B.C. Liberals and their supporters will make this incident the focal part of a number of hard-edged ads that zero in on Dix’s character and honesty. His political enemies will try to question his character, and try to brand him as a dishonest person who can’t be trusted to lead the province. The message, relayed over and over again, will no doubt shape how some people vote in May. The question is, how many? Are more people simply tired of the B.C. Liberals and don’t care that much about the NDP’s record in the 1990s or about issues like Dix’s memo? The NDP’s campaign theme is “change for the better” and the call for a change in government can be a powerful one when a party has been governing a long time. It’s useful to note the B.C. Liberals tried to
use the memo incident in attack ads in last year’s two by-elections, and had absolutely zero success as they lost both seats. Dix is both the key strength but also potentially the fatal weakness of the NDP. While he is more highly-regarded by the public than Christy Clark, he is also less well known and thus vulnerable to his opponents defining his public image along their lines, and not his own. As is so often the case in B.C. politics, there’s a great irony here. Back during the 1996 election campaign, when Dix was Clark’s top aide, the NDP ran a brutally negative ad campaign aimed at B.C. Liberal leader Gordon Campbell. A series of television ads depicted Campbell’s face tinged with grey, with a menacing and forbidding look. A voice-of-doom like narrator talked in dark terms about Campbell. The ads were relentless and, presumably, somewhat effective. The NDP won the election. Campbell and his party were furious and angry they had lost an election that looked easily within their grasp a few months before the vote. There’s still an outside chance history may repeat itself. Of course, that may depend on whether people care more about what happened in the ‘90s, and not about the past 12 years. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Dix’s winners are losers
Giant badminton centre opens
The Editor, I wasn’t as thrilled as Adrian Dix was about going to Ottawa to “learn from other NDP winners” last week. First, Mr. Dix mentioned NDP Premier Greg Selinger of Manitoba as a winner who not only promised not to raise taxes, but even went so far as to put it down in writing for the voters of Manitoba but that was before he won the election. After he won the election, Greg Selinger raised the taxes in Manitoba by $182 million. He brought in some of the biggest tax increases in the history of the province. He is also not ruling out tax hikes again in the next budget for 2013. Next, Mr. Dix also mentioned NDP Premier Derrell Dexter who recently won the election in Nova Scotia as someone he would like to talk to as well. Dexter said he wouldn’t raises taxes either if he was elected. After he won the election, Dexter raised the HST in Nova Scotia to the highest level in Canada. Mr. Dix, you already have a lot of experience in the political field here in B.C.
You, Mr. Dix, were the Chief-of-Staff for Glen Clark when B.C. had the highest marginal income tax rates in Canada. B.C. was also last in Canada for job growth and B.C. became a “have not” province. Mr. Dix, you also sat in on the outrageous “fast ferry” decisions which cost the B.C. taxpayer $450 million, only to be sold for $19 million to a Washington marine group, which, in turn, sold our fast ferries to Abu Dhabi Mar in the United Arab Emirates. So you see Mr. Dix, why I am not as thrilled as you talking to these NDP “winners” and I am sure that most of the voters of B.C. are not thrilled as well with the idea that you consider NDP politicians, who said they wouldn’t raise taxes and then raise taxes after they win the election, as winners either. I would call them liars. Hopefully, if you become Premier, you will not follow in the same footsteps that your “winners” have taken. Linda Cooper Richmond
Extension arouses suspicion The Editor, So, Terry Lake and Rich Coleman are having a hard time making a decision — I wonder why? Maybe Port Metro Vancouver’s contribution to the “harmonized process” decision is not ready yet? Or PMV is waiting for an application for a permit to
build from VAFFC for a tank farm and marine terminal? Or they want to commission some more studies, like: What’s the impact of an unconfined fuel vapour explosion at the tank farm and marine terminal? Jim Ronback P.Eng Director of VAPOR
Mayor Malcolm Brodie and MP Alice Wong attended the official opening of Khas Badminton Centre at No. 6 and Bridgeport roads. The centre, owned by head coach Chris Kwee (top, far right), is the largest badminton facility in Canada, with 18 courts. Close to 150 people showed up for the opening.

Navigating a safe, sensible passage through Netflix Barry Link THE PRACTICAL GEEK
For Christmas this year, I gave a couple I know a gift of two months free to Netflix. They
appreciated the gift, but they weren’t sure what to make of it. While they have two laptops and a home computer and are avid users of Facebook, they prefer a more basic approach to tech in their lives. They are cable cord cutters in their own right, having never had cable TV and instead preferring to borrow DVDs from the public library — an excellent option.
So when faced with the torrent of choices that is Netflix, their response to the service has been cautious confusion. Their reaction is understandable: Netflix does a poor job of providing a straightforward way to discover what’s in its library. Its grouping of titles into genres, while helpful, never seems to catch everything that should be included in those individual
genres. Beginners to Netflix can experience a feeling of being lost at sea. To help out my friends, I’ve made a list of selected titles I think they’ll enjoy. I’ll share that in a moment, but before I do, here are three bits of advice to novice Netflixers. First, the instant queue is your friend. If you find a show or
movie you think you might want to watch down the road, save it to your queue because you might not come across it again anytime soon. Second, bookmark the website What’s New on Netflix Canada. Unaffiliated with Netflix, it provides daily updates on the newest titles, what titles are expiring soon and a more useful search engine see Shows page 13

Shows: Not easy to find on TV Continued from page 10 than offered by Netflix. Finally, Netflix is available on more devices, from smartphones to tablets to computers, than almost any other online media service out there. It’s not just for your TV, so don’t feel tethered to your living room to use it. So, here’s my suggested starter list. First, some TV shows that are hard to find on regular TV in Canada and show the value of Netflix in making them widely available: z Wallander: Kenneth Branagh stars as the fictional Swedish detective for whom the series is named. Beautifully shot and acted in English, it’s a quieter take on Sweden’s hidden disturbing side than the Dragon Tattoo film trilogy. z MI-5: North America had 24, but the UK had this BBC spy series which shares much of the same thriller-based DNA. Vaguely lefty, sometimes ridiculous, it’s breathless in its portrait of the spy service of a faded empire trying to protect its little country from being ground up by in struggle between global superpowers and international and domestic terrorists. Don’t get attached to any of the cast — this is British TV. z The Hour: Another BBC show, this time about the
dawn of investigative TV news in the UK in the 1950s. Fine acting and Mad Men-like focus on period detail make up for unnecessarily overdramatic plotlines. z Justified: Created by a Canadian with a Canadian in the lead role, this smart, funny and moody series based on an Elmore Leonard character who returns to his native Kentucky as a U.S. marshal is probably the best American cop show on TV right now. Netflix has the first two seasons available, with the second even better than the first. Side note: I’ve been told, repeatedly, by my co-watcher of this series that Timothy Olyphant looks great without his shirt on. z How I Met Your Mother: An American sitcom that I completely missed when it first debuted. Like The Big Bang Theory, it’s slick and not very original but is very funny. It’s also an example of Netflix’s ability to help you catch up with shows you missed the first time around. Have your own Netflix picks? Feel free to drop me a line and I’ll include them in a future column. Barry Link is the editor of the Vancouver Courier.

s the world premiere of Sisters draws nearer, we sit down with visionary writer Simon Johnston and the show’s multi-talented director, Sarah Rodgers.
Gateway: What’s it like to sit back and watch a director help get your play on its feet? Simon: As a man, this is as close as I will ever get to having a baby. The director is like my midwife. She has helped me stay healthy while I was “pregnant” working on the text and now she is assisting me to birth the “child”. G: What’s it like to have the writer sit in on rehearsal? Sarah: It has been a joy having the writer in the room with us—so wonderful getting the meaning behind the ideas ﬁrst hand—it has been a beautiful collaboration. We laugh together and smile and celebrate the actors’ victories and put our heads together to trim the piece to a well-oiled, economical play. G: Have you ever been in a situation like this before? Simon: Yes! I’ve written 12 plays and they have all been produced. But each experience is unique. No matter how many opening nights I’ve had in the past, each one is like the ﬁrst time. I am a cornucopia of feelings: nervous, excited, insecure, proud, anxious, happy all rolled into one—like a new dad hoping the world will love my child as much as I do. G: Why should we come see Simon’s work? Sarah: He has brought a great sense of comedy to Chekhov while bringing his very own Chinese perspective to the play—great originality! G: Why should we come see Sarah’s work? Simon: This is one of Sarah’s ﬁrst new plays after a string of Jessie award-winning productions. If you are interested in seeing a world premiere directed by a top director then you must see this show. See both Simon & Sarah’s exceptional work in Sisters on now!

Russian composer brings works unheard in Canada Khvatov, who moved to Richmond from Russia about five years ago, has invited an old music school colleague Vasily Scherbakov to play a concert in Richmond this Friday, Feb. 1 at the Richmond Music School. Russian composer and pianist Scherbakov comes from a family of Russian musicians, including Kabalevsky, known for his consistent efforts to connect children to music through his teachings and compositions. It will be Scherbakov’s first performance in Canada and he will perform a Sonata for Violin and Piano by Kabalevsky, which has never been heard by Canadian audiences. “He’ll bring us pieces written by Kabalevsky that are in a different style than his published works,” said Khvatov, a former Richmond Music School teacher who works for Victor Shevtsov, president of Richmond Music Festival Society. “It’s a chance for audiences to discover another side of the music by Kabalevsky.”
BY YVONNE ROBERTSON
When listing romantic composers, one would be hard-pressed not to include the Russians — Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, to name a few. It’s undeniable these revered composers have made major contributions to classical music, but few western audiences have the opportunity to hear the lesser known works by some of these great musicians. So when Richmond music instructor Denis Khvatov had the chance to expose Richmondites to unpublished works of 20th century composer Dmitry Kabalevsky, he knew it was too important to pass up. “The Russian piano school has always been something special,” said Khvatov, who recently wrote a new method for students learning the piano. “We wanted to bring the traditions of the Russian piano school to Richmond, to expose audiences to it.”
YVONNE ROBERTSON RICHMOND NEWS
Russian pianist Vasily Scherbakov, left, will be performing a piano sonata by Dmitry Kabalevsky, which hasn’t been heard by Canadian audiences before. His friend Denis Khvatov (right), Richmond music instructor, arranged for the event this Friday. Friday’s repertoire will also dazzle the audience with works by Mozart and Rachmaninov. Scherbakov attempts to blend the emotional with the technical in his piano playing, with “his fingers of steel and heart of gold,” said Khvatov. “My motto is to have a hot heart, but a
cold mind,” said Scherbakov, who has been playing the piano for 37 years, since the age of six. The concert takes place at the Richmond Music School, 11371 No. 3 Rd. at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door only, and are $20 for adults and $10 for children.

Visit one of the most multicultural villages in BC BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News
It may be a small village tucked away in Richmond, but the cosmopolitan town of Steveston is expanding beyond its fishing roots and has become a destination for tourists, prospective owners and business owners from around the globe. Where else can you browse handmade Ukrainian-influenced jewelry, get eyelash extensions from an Iranian woman who speaks Japanese and pick up some authentic German sausage, all in the same neighbourhood? Jens Hertha has co-owned the DOriginal Sausage Haus on 1st Avenue in Steveston for about a year, the only place in town where you can get local, Germanmade sausages. He first set foot in the village about 12 years ago as a visitor from Germany, and after stints in Kamloops and Vancouver, the 37-year-old former banker now calls Steveston home and his place of business. “Even though you’re in the middle of a big city, Steveston still has the atmosphere of a small fishing village,” said Hertha, who originally looked at emigrating to the United States before choosing Canada and its more European and multicultural feel. “We have Japanese with Mega Sushi, we have Chinese, we have Vietnamese.
We have an Iranian who lived in Germany at Bean & Beyond, we got guys next door in the bakery, they have a Danish and Irish background.” Hertha actually met his current business partner, a fellow German named Thorsten Stock, after moving to the area. “We watched a lot of hockey games and he started bringing sausages to our house. I was like ‘Wow, where do you get these from?’ and he said, ‘My dad makes them.’” Stock’s father was already in the commercial sausage business, but Hertha helped bring them into people’s homes. He and Stock found a location to set up shop and have been selling their specialty salamis since last February. Over at Moncton St., Sasha Shkolnik owns Juvelisto Jewellery Boutique. Originally from the Ukraine, she has lived in Steveston for almost 18 years and owned her business for two. “Eighteen years ago, it wasn’t what it is now, it was half the size. When the new shops started to appear, it became much more cosmopolitan,” said Shkolnik, who has noticed many of the changes occurring in the last five years. “With the new condos being built there’s definitely a younger crowd. I see some really cool-looking people hanging out at the restaurant behind my business.

Gordon: Playground is like the UN Continued from page 17 Born in Iran, she grew up in Japan when her father relocated there for work. It wasn’t until seven years ago that Goto came to Canada and found a home in Steveston with her two children. “When I cam here my dad was already in Richmond,” said Goto, who speaks Farsi, Japanese and English. “He’s been in Richmond over 25 years and he told me about a Japanese community. When we moved here my two kids started going to the Steveston Community Centre Japanese school. They go there once a week, and my son also started learning karate.” Goto took over the spa from her stepmother a year ago, and said she loves seeing the myriad of cultures that passes by her shop every day. “To be honest, being in Steveston I don’t feel like I’m in Canada,” she said, laughing. Sarah Gordon, marketing chairperson of the Steveston Merchants Association,
moved to Steveston with her family in 2003. Even coming from Vancouver, she said she was fascinated with the diverse cross-section of people in her new town. “We were new parents and we were absolutely astonished when we went to the Steveston playground. It was like the UN to my husband and I,” said Gordon, who believes like her, people from abroad are drawn to the small-town charm and village atmosphere. As chairperson of the association, Gordon monitors the pulse of the business community closely and said there are all sorts of neat businesses sprouting up like a tattoo parlour, vegan restaurant, Romanian bakery and even a wine bar called Gudrun that has the feel of a local downtown tavern where everyone gathers. “They serve wine, pâté, cheeses and they have these wooden benches where you can’t help but get involved in a conversation with your neighbour,” said Gordon.

A German friend introduced Hertha to hand-made sausages from his dad’s commercial meat business that literally left him speechless. “I was like, ‘Wow, I haven’t had these in a couple of years. Where can I buy it?’ and he said I can’t, all he does is business-to-business supplying to restaurants, BC Place, et cetera,” said Hertha. see Shop owners page 19

Is it possible, to have a complete lower denture made that does not allow food to go under the denture?
Creating a lower denture that does not allow food to go under is possible. Two factors must be observed. The size of the denture base and the balance of the teeth function. Accurate impression technique is crucial for success to be achieved. An over or under extended denture base spells disaster. Equally, teeth that wobble when chewing allows an ingress of food under the denture base. When I create, fit and deliver a full lower denture, the first questions I ask a patient when they come for their check up appointment is, did food go under the denture, how well did you chew and are the teeth sharp. If the answers are favorable, then I have completed a successful denture. You should expect this high level of expertise from your denturist. To inquire regarding this or any other high quality denture procedure, please call and book your free consultation with us.
Would you mind providing me with a little more detail on the advantages of staying with the same insurer over a longer period of time? In insurance one of the key points a policy is viewed is ' how long have they been with us ? ' Here are some of the benefits of staying with or showing loyalty to an insurer over a certain period time: 1. When considering premiums for endorsements and renewals, underwriters will reward repeat customers with the best premiums possible. 2. Flexibility in underwriting; the longer they know a risk the more comfortable they are in allowing guidelines to be adjustable. 3. 'Grandfathered', some coverages & deductibles policies are sometimes not able to be offered to new risks due to changes in guidelines. Existing policies often keep these better terms because they have been with an insurer for a longer period of time. 4. If and when there is a claim, the longer a client has been with an insurer the more an adjustor pays attention to the client in the effort to show the client that they have appreciated their business. Every case / policy is different but these are the main ones, essentially like any business, longtime clients are valued and treated accordingly where at all possible.
liens, judgements, certiﬁcates of pending litigation, etc. Charges such as easements or right-of-way generally remain on title and run with the land, transferring from owner to owner, and normally don’t adversely affect the buyer. Unless stipulated otherwise in the contract, or unless speciﬁcally requested by the buyer, searches on these encumbrances are usually not done. If the buyer is interested in details of an easement, a copy can always be obtained from the Land Title Ofﬁce, the cost being the buyer’s responsibility.
Yes, Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long history of successful treatment of this chronic pain, or Bi syndrome. This condition is characterized by pain, stiffness, numbness, swelling and a heavy sensation involving the muscles, joints, and tendons in the neck, shoulders, upper and lower back and limbs. In TCM, Bi syndrome may cover osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, and sciatica. It can include superficial conditions such as muscle strain all the way to deep bone problems as seen in polyarthritis. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine herbs are very useful in relieving the pain and reestablishing balance in the body.

Are biweekly and semi monthly payments the same?
No… they are different and one can save you thousands! While the amount of the payments might be the same, a semi monthly payment frequency will be taken 2x a month (usually the 15th and the 30th) and really does not have anat interest savings to your mortgage. A bi-weekly payment is paid every 2 weeks and in the case of a 25 year amortization paying every 2 weeks can take up to 4 years off you mortgage. Many smart home owners will match their biweekly payments with their payroll dates ensuring that the funds are there come mortgage payment time!

Canadians finally rid themselves of January blues B.C. Major Midget Hockey League team snaps six game winless streak with impressive weekend sweep of Chiefs BY MARK BOOTH
The Greater Vancouver Canadians have finally ringed in 2013. The new year had been a forgetful one for the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League team, heading into last weekend’s series against the fourth place Vancouver Northeast Chiefs. The Canadians had slipped below .500 and into sixth place after going winless in six games (0-5-1). Making the numbers even more alarming was their struggles against the league’s elite clubs. A pair of wins in Prince George against the second place Cariboo Cougars and a couple of ties were all Greater Vancouver had to show in 16 games (2-122) against the the top five teams in the standings. However, the Canadians finally made a statement by sweeping the Chiefs in convincing fashion. A four-point performance from Red Deer prospect Adam Musil led the way in a 7-4 game one victory. Taz Burman then picked up the shutout on Sunday at the Richmond Olympic Oval in a 6-0 triumph. “This was huge for us,” said Canadians coach Leland Mack. “Besides, Prince George, we have no wins against the top teams. (The Chiefs) also could be our first round opponent in the playoffs so hopefully this helps with our confidence going in.” Mack added he wasn’t close
to hitting the panic button despite his team’s significant slide. He watched his squad drop a pair of one goal games to the Valley West Hawks, then fall to the Cougars last weekend, despite outshooting them by a 39-17 margin. Back in October, the Chiefs blitzed the Canadians with dominating 4-1 and 5-1 victories. “We just moved the puck better, had good unselfish play and were more aggressive on their defence,” he continued. “We didn’t have the results in our previous games but we had been building some momentum. “This was the big part of the season for us against all the top teams. Now with the schedule coming up, hopefully we can get a win streak going.” Of the Canadians’ 10 remaining games, eight are against the bottom four teams in the standings. Their biggest test will be when the third place Okanagan Rockets come to Richmond Feb. 16-17. Justin Szeto added a pair of goals in the series opener against the Chiefs. Seafair grads Austin Adamson and Alec Dawydiak also scored. Another Seafair alumni — Alex Whitwham — and team captain Andrew Klukas scored twice in game two. Otis Goldman and Dawydiak had the others. The Canadians entertain the North Island Silvertips this weekend, with games on Saturday (4:15 p.m.) and Sunday (10 a.m.) at the Olympic Oval.

The Richmond Sockeyes can take a big step towards locking up their third consecutive Pacific International Junior Hockey League regular season championship when they host the Delta Ice Hawks on Thursday night.

with all four games being won by the visiting team. Richmond tuned up for the showdown with a 6-0 road win over the Mission City Outlaws on Saturday night.

Former Outlaw goaltender William
Latimer turned aside 22 shots for his second shutout of the season. Game time Thursday is 7:30 p.m. The Ice Hawks and Sockeyes will also meet on Feb. 12 in Ladner. Icing...

Olympic Oval hosting Jerome Indoor Games Saturday The Richmond Kajaks Track and Field Club is co-hosting the third annual and steadily growing Vancouver Sun Jerome Indoor Games Saturday at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The 320 entries are almost a 100 percent increase from last year. The re-establishment of
an indoor track tradition is possible solely because of the legacy from the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The Olympic Oval was reconstructed to include a flat 200m IAAF approved track facility. The meet will feature athletes of all ages. Distance events include: 50, 300, 600 and 1,000
metres. There is also a 50 metre hurdles race and a 4x400 relay. There will also be high jump and shot put competitions. Notable senior athletes in action include UBC’s Joy Spear Chief Morris. The Lethbridge native shocked herself when she ran 7.59 seconds in a 60metre race in Seattle last
weekend against some of the top universities on the west coast. She will be joined by teammates, Sara Hughes and Danielle Douglas in the 60 and 300 metre races. Hughes, another first year recruit out of Calgary, has a personal best of 7.77 seconds and is
ranked sixth in Canada in the 60m as a Youth (U18). UBC decathlete Ivan Staeheli will compete in the 60m hurdles, high jump and shot put. Freshman, Sean McKenzie, from Nanaimo is a new face on the UBC team. He will contest the 300m and will face strong
competition from Darcy Achari and Sebastian Adugalski. Trinity Western University’s James Linde and Zach Conrad of SFU add spice to the mix in this sprint. The competition starts at 10:30 a.m., with opening ceremonies at 2:40 p.m. and awards at 5:10 p.m.

Eberhardt returns to Capilano to pick-up 100th collegiate win Paul Eberhardt picked up a milestone win in his homecoming at a school where he spent 10 years of his decorated basketball coaching career. Eberhardt recorded his 100th victory in the Pac West Conference as the Langara Falcons rolled to a 90-63 win over Capilano University. He had coached 10 years (19992009) at the North Vancouver campus before taking a break from the collegiate men’s level. “It was kind of weird coaching from the visiting bench,” commented Eberhardt. “It was a great night with lots of my ex-Cap
players in attendance. Picking up win number 100 is pretty exciting but all it really means is that I am getting old.” Burnett grad Elliott Mason had a productive night for the Falcons with 12 points and seven rebounds. Brody Greig (McMath) flirted with a triple double, finishing with eight points, nine rebounds and eight assists. Jeff Chu (McMath) added 10 points. The Falcons are currently ranked third in the country with a 14-1 overall record. They host Camosun on Friday (8 p.m.) and then face the second place VIU Mariners (12-3) on Saturday at 3 p.m.
