City could explore building height increase

3

BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

The City of Richmond wants to explore the pros and cons of increasing building heights in the city centre. But before developers start rubbing their hands in delight at this potentially upward curve, the city is going to great lengths to ensure everyone is aware it’s just a study and no assumptions are made that maximum building heights will definitely rise. The proposal to look into the benefits and implications of increasing the height from 47 metres — which was due to go before city council’s planning committee on Tuesday — was sparked by an application from Townline Homes to rezone a small section of the city centre on No. 3 Road between Park and Cook roads. City staff are proposing the city work with the developer on a study that examines all aspects of increasing the height beyond the federal regulations. However, no matter the outcome of a city study and any city council rezoning approval, only Transport Canada can change the rules with their own study — and their study can only be initiated by a request from the YVR. According to a report by the city’s manager of policy planning, Terry Crowe, YVR has been asked several times since 2004 to request Transport Canada carry out the aforementioned study on increasing building heights in the city centre core. And, as it can take up to three years for Transport Canada to complete its study, city staff think it’s a good idea to carry out its own investigation now, affording Richmond “ample time” to examine its findings. “…council and others (citizens, community groups, developers) have expressed an interest in having buildings higher … for a variety of reasons (more varied skyline, efficient building forms, better use of limited space),” wrote Crowe. see Speculation page 4

Crash causes rail to dangle over Highway 99 Steveston Highway and a southbound lane on Highway 99 near the Massey Tunnel had to be closed Monday afternoon after a car lost control and knocked off a guard rail on an overpass. The crash happened around 1:30 p.m. on Steveston Highway and left a 10-foot section of rail dangling perilously over

Highway 99. Both the overpass and one lane of the 99 below were closed for several hours to allow safety crews to work. The accident crippled traffic flow on Steveston Highway and caused a two-mile long tailback on the 99. It’s not clear why the driver of the crashed car lost control.

Show hopes to leave big impression Anti-bullying rock concert comes to MacNeill secondary

BY PHILIP RAPHAEL Special to the News

A new musical show making the rounds in B.C.’s schools is rocking the anti-bullying message to impact a wider audience. It’s called Kindness Rocks and it makes a stop at MacNeill secondary next Monday, a couple of days ahead of Pink Shirt Day and BC Anti-Bullying Day on Feb. 27. The show’s producer, Jeanette O’Keeffe, said the event is designed to be about as close as you can get to staging a full-fledged rock and roll arena gig. “There’s a full band, a light show and music the kids can relate to,” O’Keefe said. But beyond the glitz and the glamour of the performance, the core anti-bullying message is being relayed through the music and personal stories of the performers. “We don’t want to be preaching to the kids that View video they need to be nice,” O’Keefe said, adding that real-life experiences have greater impact. “The performers will be telling their own stories, how their lives were impacted by bullying, and even how some who were bullies themselves had their lives affected.” O’Keefe added Kindness Rocks, which is sponsored by Coast Capital Savings, is the first to present an anti-bullying message in

News Speculation: Could run rife Continued from page 1 Any federal study carried out would determine if and where an increase may occur, most likely to be an area bound from Westminster Highway to Blundell Road and Minoru Boulevard to Garden City Road. If the city/Townline Homes study goes ahead, it will likely focus on a smaller area, from Cook Road to Granville Avenue and from No. 3 to Garden City roads. To ensure speculation doesn’t run rife over an increase in building height, staff propose the city notify the Urban Development Institute to advise property owners, developers and the general public that the study is a one-time deal and not to assume there will, in fact, be a change in restrictions.

School district probes 3-year calendar Parents, staff looking for consistency, but won’t be ‘100 per cent’ BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Richmond School District is looking at cementing the school calendar three years in advance. The move follows the provincial government’s relaxation in December of the rules surrounding school calendars. Since then, the district and school board have been in consultation with parents, students, teachers, staff and community organizations about setting the two-week spring break in stone. The Board of Education’s chair, Donna Sargent, and superintendent, Monica Pamer, have also met with other Metro Vancouver school districts on the subject of three-year and balanced calendars. And the upshot thus far is a con-

sensus for a degree of certainty to be implanted into the calendar to allow people to plan with more confidence for the likes of vacations, babysitting, daycare and time off work. “Given the consistent feedback from parents and staff to have a longterm, permanent and predictable Standard Calendar … it is recommended that serious consideration be given for the approval of the proposed three year school calendar,” wrote the district’s assistant superintendent, Wendy Lim, in her report, which was discussed Monday by the school board. More public consultation will take place between now and the spring break before the board decides to implement a three-year calendar. Sargent said any three-year calendar would still be subject to change and wouldn’t be “100 per cent guar-

anteed.” “Like everything else, it could come back to us every year to look at, but I think the if we give out this level of consistency to the public, it would be difficult to change,” said Sargent. And the whole discussion on a district and/or regional balanced calendar — whereby schools take three fourweek breaks per year — may have to take a backseat should a three-year calendar be introduced. “That is something we will have to discuss over the next few weeks,” added Sargent. “We’ve had several discussions at a Metro level about everybody changing their calendars to be the same. “Whether that’s a balanced calendar or not, I’m not sure. It is something that, within Metro, we’ve been talking about a lot.”

A man entered guilty pleas Thursday in connection with the fatal stabbings of his estranged wife and a male friend of hers in a McDonald’s on No. 3 Road and Granville Avenue. Chang Xi Wang pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of his ex-wife, Yan Lin, 36, and to the second-degree murder of Zhe Hu, 37. The accused had originally been charged with the second-degree murder of Lin but pleaded guilty to the lesser and included offence of manslaughter. The pleas were entered during a brief appearance before B.C. Supreme Court Justice Arne Silverman in Vancouver. Wang sat quietly in the prisoner’s dock with a Mandarin interpreter by his side.

Don Morrison, Wang’s lawyer, told the judge that there would be an agreed statement of facts and possibly a joint book of authorities to deal with parole eligibility issues. A 15-day jury trial had been scheduled to get under way March 18. The sentencing for Wang has been scheduled for March 28. Second-degree murder carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison with a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of 25 years of parole ineligibility. The only sentencing issue on the murder count will be parole eligibility. Manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of life in prison but usually results in a lesser jail sentence. The two victims were stabbed to death in front of patrons and staff at the restaurant on No. 3 Road in Richmond on Aug. 28, 2009. Wang, 33, was arrested soon after the slayings and has remained in custody since.

Husband arrested after woman’s remains found BY KIM BOLAN

The Vancouver Sun

For years, Vancouver resident Gurpreet Gill was a missing person whose family desperately searched for her. Now she has been confirmed as a 2006 murder victim and her husband Jaswant Singh Gill has been charged with killing her. Vancouver Police Sgt. Kevin McLaren said Monday that the mystery of Gurpreet’s disappearance was solved when human remains found in Richmond about two weeks ago were confirmed as those of the missing woman. McLaren said that police had few clues to go on after Gurpreet’s relatives reported her missing in 2006 to Vancouver Police. “As the missing person

investigation proceeded, it became clear she had likely met with foul play,” McLaren said. “For years, investigators looked for the evidence that would link a suspect to the murder. Recently, they found what they needed.” Jaswant Gill, 40, was arrested in Vancouver Saturday and charged Sunday. He was due to appear in Vancouver Provincial Court today on one count of second-degree murder. McLaren said Gurpreet’s family became worried seven years ago when they didn’t hear from the 33-year-old for an extended period of time. “Even though initially there were very few clues, our investigators never gave up. They believed they owed it to the family and the victim to stay on the case until it

was solved,” McLaren said. “We know that there is nothing that will ever make up for the tragedy and loss

the family has suffered. But we hope that today’s announcement offers them see Investigators page 6

News Thieves brag to taxi driver

YOUR $3 WILL SAVE FIVE CHILDREN FROM DEATH OR A LIFE CRIPPLED

BY BRENT RICHTER

Rotary. Rotaract & Interact Clubs of Richmond, Ladner and Tsawwassen are campaigning for a final push to:

North Shore News

While some people feel a compulsion to pour their hearts out to their cab driver, confessing to crimes apparently falls outside the bounds of cabbie/passenger confidentiality. A Richmond man is one of two alleged thieves behind bars after bragging to their taxi driver about a purse snatching they had just committed in North Vancouver on Saturday night. Police say the men boarded a North Vancouver bus and sat down next to a woman who was riding alone. After a few stops, one of the men snatched the woman’s purse and the two bolted. The alleged thieves then hailed a cab and headed to Downtown Vancouver. During the trip, the suspects regaled their driver with tales of their exploits, and showed him the woman’s purse and what appeared to be a handgun. As soon as he dropped off the pair, the cabbie called 9-1-1 to report the incident.

However, one of the men had already drawn the attention of Vancouver police and was arrested on Granville Street for breach of probation. Investigators in Richmond caught up with the second suspect on Monday night. After a search of his home, Richmond RCMP found a replica pistol. Travis William Nofield, a 19-year-old Langley resident, is facing charges of robbery and possession of stolen property as well as breach of probation. Richmond resident Edward Gerald McKay, 26, is being held on charges of possession of property obtained by crime, using an imitation firearm during an offence, and possession of an imitation firearm for a dangerous purpose. “It is gratifying to see a quick resolution to such a brazen robbery,” said Cpl. Doug Trousdell, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. “Our investigators worked closely with our partners at the Vancouver Police Department and Richmond RCMP.”

Investigators: Never gave up Continued from page 5 some measure of comfort, as it has to the investigators who never gave up in their efforts to solve the mystery and seek justice for the victim.”

Vancouver Police Deputy Chief Adam Palmer said the city’s murder rate was at its lowest level in decades in 2012 with just nine slayings. He said that in more than half of the 2012 murders,

charges have been laid and more are expected. But he wouldn’t comment on unsolved gang murders. Read more: www.vancouversun.com.

A stigmatizing bill

proposal by the Conservative government to lock up mentally ill offenders and throw away the key is unlikely to make our communities safer despite all the rhetoric about public safety. The bill is just the latest in the Harper government’s ‘tough on crime’ policies, which have seen the feds busy fighting a crime wave visible only to Conservative politicians. In the latest target, Ottawa would have us believe mentallyill killers are quickly being given passes to run riot on the streets. The bill creates a new category of “high-risk” offenders whose cases won’t be reviewed until at least three years have passed. Missing from that announcement is the fact that most seriously ill offenders wouldn’t be getting out of their institutions before that time anyway. Most people spend longer locked up in a forensic hospital than they do in jail. Psychotic killings are horrifying, rare and impact the public psyche out of all proportion to their actual frequency. They are exactly the sort of example public policy should not be based upon. The new bill is likely to perpetuate fear and stigma around mental illness but does little to address real problems. What’s really needed is help for the mentally ill prior to an episode that results in violence. In far too many cases, families have been seeking help for years but not receiving it. Money for social programs and medical help for the mentally ill — including adequate followup — is what is needed, not crime laws that stigmatize those in the grip of medical crises.

CHOICE WORDS

Demand voice on pipeline The Editor, There is an ancient fable, where a camel asks to put his nose into a tent, and by morning, the entire camel is within the tent, and the original owner is out in the cold. Apply this fable to the actions of the airlines at YVR. Over the years, they have gone from serving the people to monsters pursuing their own interests. The only reason, in truth, for the pursuit of the current fuel depot/pipeline is to increase the bottom line of the airlines, by being able to purchase offshore fuel at low prices. Despite all the PR garbage we have been subjected to, the majority of Richmond residents realize the truth of the matter and remain unalterably opposed to this whole haywire scheme. It would appear to be long past time for the residents of the region to demand a meaningful voice in the operation of YVR, and the dismissal of the current autocratic, bureaucratic leadership, who appear to be aiding and abetting this whole shoddy mess. Perhaps then, we could expect some respect for the environment, some respect for the citizens, and less of these self-serving clowns seeking only to increase their hold, and profits, from a supposedly public owned facility.

Environmentalists can’t refuse everything It seems to be very fashionable these days for folks to be opposed to all kinds of things, from pipelines to coal exports to extracting natural gas. But how realistic is it to think that shutting down all these things won’t have a negative impact on the economy? Do the same folks waving banners at rallies and shouting rhyming chants really think their standard of living won’t be affected if all kinds of industrial development simply disappear? I know some people think it’s unfair to point out that many people who demand the oil or coal industries cease to exist rely on those same industries in their daily lives. These same people demand that there be more rapid transit lines instead of more automobiles, and proudly ride a bicycle instead of the car. But they don’t seem to realize — or simply choose not to — that coal is used to make steel, which in turn builds those rapid transit lines and those bikes (and wind turbines, and hybrid vehicles and all kinds of “green” alternatives). Unfortunately, the current debate over some of these controversial projects lacks coherence and a recognition that there are very real consequences to saying “no” to everything. The question is, will the debate start becoming informed? The Kinder Morgan pipeline may prove to be the

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

starting point. The Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline seems to be dead, as the environmental movement has effectively mobilized against it. But the Kinder Morgan project is fundamentally different, and may spark a more reasoned conversation. The big difference, of course, is that there is already an existing pipeline along the proposed route and oil tankers have been filling up at the Burnaby refinery and plying the waters of Burrard Inlet and the Strait of Georgia for decades. That’s a lot different than building a pipeline through untouched pristine wilderness, and sending tankers through waters they’ve never travelled. After all, Vancouver’s harbour is a working harbour, with ships everywhere and small pools of oil visible all over the place. The debate on the Kinder Morgan project is really just getting started. I suspect it will lack the emotions attached to the Northern Gateway pipeline, and the environmental movement will have a harder time marshalling widespread opposition to it. Nevertheless, there

will be opposition. Some local mayors — notably Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan and Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson — are adamantly against it, as are some First Nations (who seem to have a de facto veto over industrial development anyways, courtesy of certain court rulings). And it will be fascinating to see how the NDP, should it win the election this May, handles this issue. The party was quick to denounce the Northern Gateway pipeline, which was taking a position that reflected a majority of public opinion. But the Kinder Morgan project is a more sensitive one for the party, since its activist members no doubt oppose it but to last more than one term in government it must ensure it’s not seen as anti-business. The New Democrats also have to be wary of joining with the anti-fracking crowd, since any moratorium on the controversial practice will have a dramatic and negative impact on government revenues. So it’s easy to say “no” all the time to all kinds of controversial developments. But whichever party wins the next election, it will find itself forced to say “yes” to a few of them. Protest rallies and demonstrations are easy to pull off. Governing without enough money coming in is not. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Do away with Senate Residents want museum details The Editor, The latest developments with respect to the Canadian Senate indicate that this relic of the past should be put to rest. The events relating to Senator Pat Brazeau and the irregularities in the out of town housing claims by some Senators have cast a shadow on this chamber of sleepy second thought. A number of attempts to reform the Senate in the past have failed miserably. The Senate, in its current form, seems to have outlived its usefulness. Any attempts to reform the Senate in a satisfactory manner will require constitutional amendment. This is like opening the Pandora’s Box. None of the central or Atlantic provinces may be willing to give up what they have. This is likely to create a stalemate. To have the Senators elected by the provinces and then appointed by the Prime Minister has some merit. Also, setting a time

limit of eight or nine years for the Senators makes sense. However, such measures may not be the lasting solution. To simply abolish the Senate and then come up with something more acceptable to Canadians seems to be the only viable solution. However, to do that again appears to be a formidable challenge. Canadians spend more than $92 million to keep the Senate going. No doubt, there are some very hard working and conscientious members of this chamber who take their responsibility seriously. They are an exception. On the whole, our Senate has become a repository of old, tired and failed politicians and party loyalists. For some, it is a plum job with little to do. Canadians deserve better than that. They need a balanced, elected, equal and effective chamber of sober second thought. Balwant Sanghera Richmond

Empty condos leads to future problems The Editor, It was reported that there are currently 50 million empty condos and untold numbers of unfinished apartment buildings in China. The situation suggests China will have some significant social and economic

problems to face. Of course, we in Richmond can easily relate to this situation, albeit on a smaller scale. The continuing proliferation of apartment blocks in our city core that remain half-occupied provides clear evidence that we

have been all too willing to walk down the same path and make the same mistakes. The important question is whether or not we will be able to avoid the same inevitable consequences. Ray Arnold Richmond

The Editor, Re: “McNulty: Museum cost justified,” News, Jan. 25. I am writing in response to the letter published in the Richmond News on Feb. 1, 2013 concerning the costs associated with the Richmond Oval. I hope our city councillors read that letter and will respond as soon as possible. City administration should come forth with a complete disclosure of all costs

pertaining to the Oval. It is our money that has been and is being used for that project. We have a right to know the details of how and where our money is being spent. We don’t need a report presented in vague, political jargon. We need and want complete details. Eleanor Hamilton Richmond

Fare gates optimize transit service The Editor, Most people who oppose the upcoming SkyTrain fare gates seem to have not realized that part of the reason that TransLink and the BC MOT want to introduce fare gates is so that integration with the upcoming Compass transit fare card can be achieved. The Compass Card and the data it obtains from its ability to track the beginning and end points of all transit trips will spawn huge improvements region-wide in transit service optimization and cost-efficiency, and these are what is going to offset the capital and annual costs of the fare gates. Without the fare gates, there would be no way to figure out what trips occur on the SkyTrain and no way to optimize based on those trips. That would be counter-productive,

as SkyTrain is a part of so many transit trips in the region. The Compass Card concept is the same concept that has already been introduced on the transit system in Montreal, and is used worldwide in transit systems. For example, in Tokyo, a single money-containing fare card will grant you access to not just the local metro, JR commuter rail and local bus lines, but also vending machines if you want a snack or a drink or whatever of the many unique items dispensed through vending machines in Japan. Once the Compass Card becomes a part of our transit system, everyone’s going to have a better experience on transit here in Metro Vancouver. Daryl Dela Cruz Surrey

Field gets federal funding Blundell Field has been given a boost of $165,300 from the federal government to go towards replacing the current sod and drainage equipment on the baseball diamond, adding stands, scoreboards and enhancing the dugouts. Richmond City Baseball Association, which runs out of Blundell Field, will also expand the batting cages and create an adjacent long toss training and fielding facility. “We are absolutely delighted (with the funding), along with the City of Richmond, to help

us make some major upgrades to Blundell Field that will leave a baseball legacy for decades to come,” said Trevor Rennie, association president. “Blundell Field will now become a major tournament site in Richmond and will contribute to the economic viability of the community. “This is especially significant today in that 2013 is the 50th Anniversary of the association and this funding will allow us to serve the youth of Richmond well for another 50 years.”

Stem Cell Activator

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to #63 create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage.

Build a sculpture, help environment Lulu talk connects people, land

BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

Parents, let your kids dig through the garbage or rifle through the recycling all for the sake of art and the environment. The Community Arts Council of Richmond presents the second annual EcoFriendly Sculpture Challenge this April and now wants submissions until March 10. The challenge accepts modern sculptures by youth, ages 10 to 17, who have used only recycled, re-purposed or re-used materials. “For kids to start paying attention to the environment now, hopefully speaks to what will happen in the future,” said Margaret Stephens, treasurer and primary administrator of the council. “Hopefully this raises awareness. And when the kids start doing it, it encourages parents to do the same.” Last year, the council accepted all entries, and Stephens hopes the same will happen this year, space permitting. First, the submissions must go before a jury to ensure quality and requirements are met. “It teaches the kids what not to throw away and it will hopefully encourage an artistic sense within them as well.” The age range has expanded to include

Each participant from last year’s Eco-Friendly Sculpture Challenge received a Participation Certificate for their work. 16- and 17-year-olds, which separates the contestants into three categories: junior (10 to 12 years), intermediate (13 to 15) and senior (16 and 17). There will be cash prizes for winners in each category, including a people’s choice award, voted in by viewers. Last year’s winners included a Steampunk Rocket Car powered with LED lights and garage-door openers, and a Recycle-a-saurus sculpted out of paint

colour samples and an egg carton. Winners will display at City Hall and at the Earth Day celebrations on April 20. There’s no entrance fee for the contest, which is open to all youth living in or attending a Richmond school. The display at Thompson Community Centre takes place on April 6 and April 7, winners to be announced at 4 p.m. For eligibility and submission requirements, visit www.richmondartscouncil.org.

The Richmond Photo Club is currently holding its annual exhibition of members’ photographs at the food court rotunda of Lansdowne Centre this week. This year, the exhibit comprises of about 96 photos by 24 of the members. “There’s no specific theme, it really ranges between still life, landscapes, there’s quite a variety,” said club member Ann Reiner. Not all of the club’s 60 members have submitted a photo, but for the ones who did, which include Reiner, they’ve entered four pieces each. The photo club meets twice a month and offers an opportunity for all levels of photographers to learn from each other and form a sense of community. It holds competitions amongst the club members with qualified judges, as well as, lectures, workshops and group shoots. “I joined because I had an interest, but no great knowledge of photography, so I’ve really learned a lot in the six years,” said Reiner. Due to its membership in the Canadian Association of Photographic Art, the club

Richmond soccer standout headed to Yale

Defender Justine Do’s work on the field and in the classroom earns her lucrative deal to prestigious Ivy League school BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

Justine Do is a difference maker on the soccer pitch but the Richmond teen’s ambitions go well beyond the sidelines. “My dream is to be involved with medicine, working in a lab or in the field,” she said. “I want to find cures or do something like Doctors Without Borders where I can travel to villages and connect with people through soccer.” A few minutes with this articulate Grade 12 student at Hugh Boyd secondary student and it’s easy to see why she is headed to one of the most prestigious schools in the world. Do has combined her soccer talent and exceptional work in the classroom to earn a lucrative deal to attend Yale University. She is going to Connecticut in 2014 after talks with the Ivy League school began nearly two years ago. Yale women’s varsity head coach Rudy Meredith became interested in Do after watching her during a pre-event at Sportstown for the annual Western Canada Soccer Showcase. At the time, Do was a member of the provincial under-16 team. “We weren’t even allowed to play in the tournament but (Showcase founder) Ciara McCormack had arranged for a few us to go to Sportstown where a bunch of university coaches watched us play some indoor soccer,” recalled Do. The NCAA recruiting process meant Meredith could only have a casual discussion with Do’s mom since she was still in Grade 10. However, a line of communication was established as her soccer career continued to flourish. She helped the Richmond Red Hot Selects complete a banner season by winning the provincial U16 championship, then accepted a spot in the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency program. Do made an unofficial visit to Yale at the start of her Grade 11 year and immediately fell in love with the New Haven campus. “I had basically made up my mind the first half hour I was there,” she laughed. “It was just so inspiring seeing how everybody was, not just the soccer team. They are all

there for the same purpose and that’s to be happy and successful at what they want do in their life. I just loved the environment. “The coaches are like a second father or an uncle to you. They have picked you to play for them not because you can score goals but genuinely because you are a good person that they want to develop as an athlete and a person.” Do described herself as a “bench warmer” during the early years of her soccer career before she began working with Clive Clarke at the U13 level. Clarke made her realize her potential on one of the most successful teams ever to come out of the Richmond Girls Soccer Association. Do was slotted in at fullback where she became a dynamic player, often jumping into the play as an extra dimension to the team’s vaunted attack that featured current U20 national team member Summer Clarke. “I can’t think of a coach who has been more of a influence,” said Do. “Clive is a good person, great coach and an even better mentor. He not just helps you grow as a soccer player but emphasizes what it means to be a true athlete and a person. “It was so fun to play on that team. It’s weird how it ended up being only 12 of us (on the roster). Our chemistry off the field reflected in the way we played.” Do would have liked to stay another year with the Red Hot Selects but she couldn’t say no to the Whitecaps’ offer that covers all her training expenses. It meant a huge commitment for herself, and her parents too, with nightly training sessions at least four times a week up at Burnaby Mountain.

Big first half powers Palmer to 7th straight city championship

The RC Palmer Griffins will attempt to secure one final trip to Kamloops this week and they will be doing it as seven-time Richmond Senior Boys Basketball League champions. The Griffins head to the Lower Mainland AA Championships at King George secondary in Vancouver with plenty of momentum after securing their record-tying seventh straight title. After finishing fourth in regular season play, Palmer played its best basketball when it mattered the most, producing three straight wins last week, including a 91-81 victory over the host Burnett Breakers in front of a capacity crowd last Friday. “I am very proud of these boys,” commented head coach Paul Eberhardt. “Many people doubted us that we would bounce back and win it again but the boys showed great heart and played incredible basketball when it counted most.” The difference proved to be Palmer’s explosive first half as they managed 37 points in the opening

quarter and took a commanding 60-37 lead into the intermission. The Griffins were lethal beyond the arc, hitting seven three-pointers in the first quarter alone.

“That was one of the most impressive halves I have seen a Palmer team play,” continued Eberhardt. “We had five different players hit three-point shots.”

MARK BOOTH/RICHMOND NEWS

RC Palmer Griffins held off the Burnett Breakers 91-81 to win the Richmond Senior Boys Basketball Championship.

The Breakers showed why they lost just once in league play by storming back with a terrific third quarter, outscoring the defending champs 24-8. However, they never could get closer than seven points as Palmer always seemed to come up with a key basket to slow the momentum. Senior Jamie Madewan made his final game in Richmond a memorable one with a game-high 35 points. He also had 11 rebounds and eight assists. Madewan, who came off the bench as a Grade 10 to have a key role in the provincial final two years earlier, was later named the Richmond League MVP. Antonio Jhuty added 30, while Justin Wong had 26 for Burnett. Palmer’s road to the final began with a 91-81 win over the Richmond Colts, then a 80-66 victory against regular season champion McMath. Burnett advanced with wins over Steveston-London (74-44) and McRoberts (70-51). The Griffins now turn their attention to attempt-

ing to earn a spot in the provincial “AA” tournament which will be held in Kamloops for the final time before the tourney shifts to the Langley Events Centre in 2014. Two berths will be on the line at the Lower Mainland tourney with St Thomas More, King George and Notre Dame expected to be the Griffins’ main challengers. McRoberts, MacNeill and Hugh Boyd are also part of the eight team tourney. Meanwhile, the Breakers and McMath are should be very much in the mix at the Lower Mainland “AAA” Championships with five B.C. berths on the line. Provincially ranked

Kitsilano, St. Georges and Churchill will be heavily favoured to earn three of them but the other two spots are wide open. As Richmond No. 1, the Breakers have been seeded fourth and will host No. 5 Churchill on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. McMath opened play yesterday against Tupper. At the buzzer... The hard luck team of this year’s city championships proved to be the McNair Marlins. In arguably the most competitive tournament in its near 20year history, the Marlins saw their season come to an end with a 73-70 loss to McMath for the final Lower Mainland “AAA” berth.
