Texting while driving is today’s drunk driving — remarkably common in Richmond and extremely dangerous.

Despite obvious dangers, Richmond drivers behaving badly; cellphone usage spikes pretty prevalent,” said Sergeant Rob Quilley, of Richmond RCMP’s Road Safety Unit. “I think there’s more people trying to hide it now that it’s illegal. They keep it on their lap, so what you find is a whole lot of drivers staring at their crotch. “We know what they’re doing, but it’s difficult to enforce it. To be honest, that — Rob practice is even more dangerous than before, when they had their heads up.” During February, Quilley’s team carried out a Distracted Driving Campaign and, over just four operations, handed out 143

Up to 30 per cent of car accidents is caused by distracted driving and you’re 23 times more likely to crash if you’re texting while behind the wheel. In the five seconds you took to simply read that life or death text message, you could have, if your speed was 70 kmph, traveled the length of a football field. Yet Richmond drivers don’t seem to be getting the message and more of them are turning into “crotch-starers,” peering at their cellphones on their laps in an attempt to evade detection by police. “I’m not sure if it’s happening more, it’s hard to tell. But it’s still

Even taking into account that more officers were on duty this time around, it’s still an indication that cell phone use while driving is on the rise. “It’s not difficult to find them when we’re out there looking for it,” said Quilley. Quilley “It’s especially noticeable at intersections, when people are slowing down or are stopped.” New research indicates that texting while behind the wheel is akin to drinking and driving.

chologist for ICBC, said it goes without saying that taking your eyes off the road causes problems, but now “it’s your hands and minds as well.” “What research is finding is that the new Smartphones are much more addictive, they’re basically harder for people to put down,” said Vavrik. “There’s also more going on on those little screens than ever before and that’s obviously more distracting. “It’s a little bit like when you subconsciously check your watch. This is what’s happening with people and their phones, it’s a reflex and is addictive behaviour. People can’t live without them and it’s an integral part of their lives.” see Distraction page 4

Owner started early to change 500 clocks After decades in business, Graham says it’s no big deal

BY JOHN MACKIE The Vancouver Sun

Daylight time started on the weekend and many of us were probably feeling extra tired Monday morning. But thank your lucky stars you aren’t Ron Graham. The owner of The Clock Gallery has about 500 clocks in his 1,800-square-foot store at Lansdowne Centre. Saturday afternoon, Graham and an assistant started resetting the time on about 250 clocks. He changed grandfather clocks, wall clocks, and cuckoo clocks, new clocks, old clocks, even a few wristwatches. It sounds like a daunting task, but after three decades in the clock business, Graham doesn’t think it’s that big a deal. “Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no, not at all,” he said. “We start in the early afternoon and by six o’clock everything is done.” Besides, the spring changeover is much easier than the fall. “The spring is easy, it’s just a matter of advancing the time forward,” he said. “Most clocks will easily allow you to advance the time forward. When you go back an hour, that’s tough, because a lot of clocks will not let you go backwards. So you have to go (forward) 11 hours to reset the time. ” Does he ever get confused by the switchover? “Not myself, but my ex-wife used to drive me crazy,” he said. “Every year, she asked exactly the same question: ‘Do I gain an hour, or do I lose an hour?’” You might think that in the age of iPhones a clock store would be struggling, but Graham said business is still very good. “Everybody needs an alarm clock. People who want a status symbol will buy a grandfather clock.” His customer base also seems to be getting

They’ll buy a nice Swiss, German, English, French or Italian clock. He sells $5 alarm clocks and $10 wristwatches, but specializes in quality timepieces such as a century-old cuckoo clock that’s $500. His most expensive item is a 200-year-old grandfather clock that was made in England. The price: $5,000.

“People ask ‘Why would you buy a $5,000 grandfather clock when you can get a $10 wall clock?’” he said. “Well, a $10 wall clock is cheap, plastic, made in China, loud, and in the garbage in three years. The grandfather clock will be your grandchildren’s someday. “It depends on what you want in life. If you want quality, you buy once.” ❚ For more stories, go to www.vancouversun.com.

R I C H M O N D

The five options for replacing the 54-year-old Massey Tunnel have been revealed by the B.C. government. Following public consultation last fall, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure announced Monday the options that will be commented on by the public over the next few weeks. The options are: 1. Maintain the existing tunnel.

2. Replace the existing tunnel with a new bridge. 3. Replace the existing tunnel with a new tunnel. 4. Maintain the existing tunnel and build a new crossing such as a “twin” bridge or tunnel along the Highway 99 corridor. 5. Maintain the existing tunnel and build a new crossing in a new location. If a twin crossing is chosen, a bridge or tunnel would be constructed next to the existing tunnel to provide extra capacity for the

current tunnel, which is bursting with more than 80,000 vehicles every day. A completely new crossing in a new corridor could be located between No. 8 Road in Richmond and 80th Street in Delta, near to the new South Fraser Perimeter Road. However, Richmond city council has already expressed concerns over the loss of more agricultural land in that rural region of the city, should a new crossing be built there. Any improvements to the exist-

ing infrastructure would include structural and seismic upgrades to the tunnel and adjoining bridges as well as the Steveston and Highway 17 interchanges. A new bridge could include multi-use paths and dedicated HOV lanes, removal of the current tunnel and improvements to the related bridges and interchanges. Three open-house meetings are planned for Wednesday in Richmond, Thursday in Surrey and Saturday in Delta. see Public page 4

Distraction: Third leading cause of fatal crashes drive slower when they’re on the phone. That may seem like a good idea, but it’s not. “They tend to deviate from their lane more often and cause the speed of the lane to become unstable. When the brain is engaged in more than one activity, and when that activity is more elaborate, the more and more attention is taken away from the road and devoted to that phone conversation, which the brain is giving priority to.” When you’re on the phone to someone, Vavrik pointed out that people will usually feel the need to keep the conversation going all the time. Whereas, when you’re talking to a passenger in your car, there is less of a need to

Continued from page 1 The number of people behaving in such ways is increasing, said Vavrik, but the problem is there’s not much of a footprint left, unlike alcohol, when a breath test can usually determine if an offence has been committed. Ten years ago, the distracted driving focus zoomed in on the difference between hand-held and hands-free devices. But, according to Vavrik, it seems that handsfree is not that much better. “What we’ve found is that, even on a hands-free, the driver has trouble judging the speed of oncoming traffic, especially at a left-hand turn,” he said. “Also, people tend to

fill the air with words and there are four eyes on the road. A 2012 Ipsos Reid survey conducted on behalf of ICBC shows that B.C. drivers consider texting while driving to be just as risky as drinking and driving. Distracted driving is the third leading cause of fatal car crashes in B.C., with an average of 94 deaths per year due to distractions such as using a personal electronic device behind the wheel. And studies in Alberta and Australia are now indicating that reading billboards is also an increasing problem. University of Alberta researcher Michelle Chan has made a case for regulating

emotional distractions while driving. Chan devised an experiment using a driving simulator, in which participants drove past 20 billboards in one of three scenarios. The billboards in each scenario contained different types of words: ❚ Positive words (such as beach, love, cheer or win) ❚ Negative words (such as cancer, stress, ulcer or killer) ❚ Neutral words (such as engine, statue, lawn or pencil) The results showed that all three groups showed some driver distraction, but the highest levels — and those indicating greater driver risk — occurred with the emotionally-charged words.

Chan has pointed to Australia as an example of a country with developed billboard content laws. But it’s not just cellphoneusing drivers that are the modern day scourge of the road. Quilley revealed some of the worst sights he’s seen in recent years in terms of drivers displaying new depths of arrogance and stupidity. “There has been people eating soup, cereal and even eating noodles with chopsticks,” he said. “This guy had his forearms on the wheel and held the bowl of noodles with his hands. “But the worst are the crotch-starers; their eyes are not even on the road.”

Among the most common concerns were congestion — rush-hour lines can stretch back sometimes as far as five kilometres — economic and trade impacts,

possibilities for alternative transportation like cycling and public transit, and a desire for a long-term solution. According to official estimates, the tunnel has about 10 to 15 years of life left in it and the government has said it could take up to 10 years to replace.

If the tower at Vancouver International Airport were assessed at just $20, the City of Richmond would lose about $80,000 a year in property tax revenue, said Mayor Malcolm Brodie, adding he had not been informed the company had appealed the assessment. “That’s ridiculous,” Brodie said. “I think the air traffic controllers play a vital role and a pivotal role in the airport operation and should be assessed and taxed accordingly. “If there was such a reassessment it would be unfair in the extreme and I’m sure every party who has an interest in it would be appealing it,” he said. “Just because you have a unique use for a building or some property and it’s zoned accordingly, to say that it has no value is just fiction.” ❚ For the full story, go to www.richmond-news.com.

Canada’s air traffic control agency is appealing for lower property assessments for airport control towers across Canada, a move that could cost Richmond thousands of dollars in taxes. The 2013 assessment of the control tower at Vancouver International Airport in Richmond was set at $9.9 million by B.C. Assessment. That was appealed by Nav Canada to the B.C. Property Assessment Review Panel, the first stage of an appeal process, in January. That panel has withheld a decision on the YVR tower until the B.C. Supreme Court rules on an older dispute between B.C. Assessment and Nav Canada over the value of similar facilities at four other airports in B.C.

The 2013 spring pedestrian safety campaign was introduced last week in an aim to raise awareness on the issue and hopefully save some lives. Volunteers and officers from the Richmond RCMP, transit police, Richmond Fire-Rescue and representatives from ICBC were at the Brighouse Skytrain station handing out reflective armbands and safety brochures last Thursday. The goal is to educate the public about “Being Seen in Richmond”. “The weather’s getting nicer and more people are making their way outdoors so this is a great time to drive home the importance of pedestrian safety,” said Cpl. Sherrdean Turley, the media relations officer for

Richmond RCMP. The pedestrian safety campaign is an annual event in Richmond’s high volume, foot traffic areas and is used as a way to provide safety tips for passersby. Some of those tips include removing your headphones when crossing the street, making eye contact with drivers and wearing bright colours and reflective clothing. They also have some tips for the drivers themselves to slow down when driving near bus stops and to try and make eye contact with pedestrians. “As spring approaches, we will begin to see more pedestrians on our roads,” said John Dickinson, ICBC’s director of road safety. “We can all play an active role in helping keep each other safe by making smart choices — whether we’re driving, cycling or walking.”

Beware of time change after effects

The times are a-changin’. Some people should take heed in Bob Dylan’s dire warning when it came to last Sunday morning’s clock change. According to an ICBC survey, 34 per cent of B.C. drivers admit their ability to drive safely is affected by the disruption in sleep cycle caused by the hour lost when the clocks are changed. Given a statistical baseline that indicates an overwhelming majority of drivers impossibly consider themselves “better than average” when it comes to driving safely, it’s probably safe to say the actual number of drivers who are affected by the time change is also significantly greater than the 34 per cent who admit it. And we’re all probably more seriously affected than we care to admit. Even if only 34 per cent of drivers — one in three on the road at any given time — are less alert and slower to react to an emergent situation (like a kid darting across the road after a ball in our brightening spring weather, or a pedestrian stepping into the road unexpectedly, or a sleepy fellow driver missing a stop sign), it should give serious pause for thought to the rest of us “above-average” drivers who will need to defend ourselves against having them collide with us during the next week or two under the new time schedule, while all our circadian rhythms get back in sync. Indeed, the folks who admit to feeling a little less perfect because of time-change disruption may actually be less dangerous to the rest of us than those who refuse to consider the possibility that they may be affected. At least the 34 per cent are more likely to be on the alert for their own lack of alertness.

CHOICE WORDS

City lacks spine on fin issue The Editor, Re: “Steves puts dog shark fin on menu,” News, March 6. Disappointing, but not surprising, that city council did not have the courage to put a ban in place on shark fin soup. Many of Richmond’s public have made their opinions known regarding this issue, yet city council takes the easy out, saying it’s a federal issue. Why not, instead, show some leadership and listen to the Richmond citizens who have spoken out well on this matter. If we do not desire this slaughter of sharks to please a few, so be it. Anyone who has seen the pictures of how these fins are gathered should be disgusted! A large shark is caught, pulled aboard the fishing boat, its fin cut off, and it is tossed back into the sea to suffer and die. Councillor Harold Steves’ easy out to this is to allow the slaughter (harvest) of our local dog fish — a small variety of the shark. But, no doubt, their small fins are of no interest to the few local merchants who insist in serving this and even threaten to take legal action if a ban is put in place. A lot they care about the welfare of sharks — some species soon to be classed as endangered! Also from past stories I have read on this subject few Chinese diners eat this soup at any rate, as it is too expensive. Victor Hillman Richmond (See Editor’s note page 9)

NDP supporters in for rude awakening A protest rally this past weekend served as another reminder that a whole bunch of New Democratic Party supporters are in for a rude awakening if their political party wins. About 200 people gathered outside Premier Christy Clark’s constituency office, demanding more government money for a comprehensive child care plan. If the NDP does indeed form the next government, I suspect a similar demonstration will take place outside leader Adrian Dix’s constituency office. That’s because Dix has signalled he knows the government cupboard is bare, and has already indicated his plans for a provincewide child care program are dead in the water, at least for a while, because the money simply isn’t there to fund one. But the lack of an expensive child care system isn’t the only issue sure to disappoint the various interest groups that support the NDP over the B.C. Liberals. Teachers, for example, may get a slight pay hike from an NDP administration, but not one that comes anything close to what they’ve been demanding from the provincial government. And they’d be wise to lower expectations when it comes to funding for the classroom. There will be some prounion changes to labour legislation, but unionized public sector workers shouldn’t expect any significant pay

hikes any time soon. And the NDP has decried the level of child poverty in this province for years, but again, I’ll be surprised if much action is taken on that front for at least a few more years and the state of government finances improves. Wait times in the health care system are not going to radically change no matter which party wins in May. I suspect the NDP’s election platform will commit more money than the B.C. Liberals’ current budget, but even that amount will simply maintain the status quo. One large constituency that usually supports the NDP may be particularly upset. That would be the environmental movement which, among other things, wants a ban on fracking to extract natural gas. The NDP’s energy critic, John Horgan, says his caucus has committed to a study on fracking, but that’s about it. He’s mindful of the vital role natural gas revenues play in paying for government services, from health care to education and I doubt an NDP government would do anything to stifle the money that can flow from that critical industry.

Governments of all philosophical stripes are becoming desperate for more revenues, which naturally sets the stage for a clash with environmentalists, as the extraction and sales of natural resources is the backbone of the B.C. economy. About the only sector that might notice some significant differences between an NDP administration and the B.C. Liberal government is post-secondary education. Dix has made it clear he considers that skills training and student aid are his top priorities. But that’s about it folks. Things aren’t going to change much after the May vote even if the party takes power. The conundrum of what to do about B.C. Ferries is a good example. The party’s critic for that company was unable to offer any specifics for what the NDP has planned for ferry services in this province. There was no commitment for increasing the tax subsidy for B.C. Ferries, or doing anything to reduce fares or make changes to service levels. All of this means that, should Dix become premier, demonstrations outside his constituency office may be rather commonplace. And those doing the protesting will be the same folks who voted for him. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Density creates vibrant, safe downtown cores The Editor, Re: “Dense makes no sense,” Letters, March 1. Using imaginary economic terms like “natural inflation” (go ahead, look it up, find me a definition) do not lend much credence to an argument. Neither does asserting that I made comments like “concrete jungle” (I never said anything of the sort). Proper urban planning can increase density while preserving (and enhancing) liv-

Fin brochure doesn’t cut it The Editor, Re: “Steves puts dog shark fin on menu,” News, March 6. Waiter!...there’s a fin in my soup. What a huge surprise in Richmond when city council (taking their lead from elsewhere) chose not to pursue a ban on shark fin imports. I’m sure the streets were filled with 1,130 revelers (the number of Scan this page people who signed a petito link to the news story tion opposing a ban on fin) dancing late into the night. But all is not lost, we who fight the fin. City staff is going to make a brochure! Probably 1,130 of them that deal with the consumption of shark fin.

ners from all over the world are visiting Vancouver to see how a compact, dense urban core can create vibrant, sustainable and safe downtowns, which reduce suburban sprawl and ease pressures on conversion of agricultural land to single family subdivisions. Compare Metro Vancouver’s model to the unbridled sprawl in Calgary, and tell me which you’d prefer. Mark Sakai Richmond

Coun. Harold Steves is on the Fin Fighters Team! He also wants to see a ban on shark fin imports. Hang on! As I read a little further into last Wednesday’s story...I think we have to print an extra brochure. Make it 1,131 brochures. He’s against foreigners hacking off the fins of sharks and letting them die a slow death. He wants us to do it ourselves here in B.C. “Its a compromise,” he points out. For who? Not the shark! Bob Niles Richmond Editor’s note: Coun. Harold Steves has never said he supports finning (the practice of cutting off a shark’s fin and leaving it to die in the water). Rather, he proposed harvesting dogfish, a variety of shark, in the same manner other fish are harvested.

Tunnel suddenly a Liberal priority the Port Mann Bridge. As we all know, it is recently disclosed that the traffic volume of the Port Mann Bridge is not up to expectation and the government is liable to use our tax payers’ money to pay for the difference. As a Richmond resident, I do not want this to happen again. Secondly, I think we need to do some immediate improvement to the tunnel. For the past 10 years, our three MLAs of Richmond have never touched upon this point. But I wonder whether our MLAs know the Massey Tunnel is the only tunnel in the world that does not have any radio reception? As we all know, Richmond is located in an area subjected to high risk of natural disasters. What if something happened? People inside the tunnel would have no connection to the outside world? Here, I would like to call upon all residents of Richmond and B.C. that we come together and do something ourselves, rather than waiting for the politicians to do something. I am now proposing that we should install, at least, a

radio transmitting antenna inside the Massey Tunnel. With this radio antenna, people will be able to get connected to the outside world. Please contact me, or my fellow workers, at support@ garylaw.ca. With your contribution, I believe we will be able to make Richmond a better place to live.

The Editor, A free transportation system is one of the most important elements of modern human society. However, it’s only now, with the election on the horizon, that the BC Liberal Party is paying attention to the Massey Tunnel issue. Premier Christy Clark had announced that there would be no major improvement being done to the Massey Tunnel for the next 10 years. However, the government is now gathering public opinions about this issue. The Massey Tunnel was built in 1959, which is 54 years ago, and everyone knows it is not able to cope with the modern traffic situation in the area. The Massey Tunnel is the only access to the southern part of Richmond and also the major route connecting to the U.S. border. There is an immediate need to improve it. Before going into the study of the design of this crossing, there are a few points I would like to bring out. First of all, I do not want to see that the BC Liberal Government is going to use this tunnel as another means of collecting taxes, just like

ROADTRIP

Pair ready for Peking to Paris rally Richmond garage prepares 1930 Ford Model A

BY PHILIP RAPHAEL Special to the News

The temperature in Beijing is expected to be around 30 degrees Celsius. In the Gobi Desert, it could drop down below zero. But the achievement of reaching the finish line in Paris and the 12,247 kilometres of bone-rattling driving from China to France will be well worth it for a pair of Vancouver-based adventurers signed up to pilot their 1930 Ford Model A Cabriolet in the fifth running of the Peking to Paris Motoring Challenge 2013. “Last year was the first year in the last 56 that I haven’t been off the North American continent,” said Gary Anderson, 75, who along with his son John are tackling the 33-day rally that gets underway May 28. Anderson, a Vancouver commercial real estate owner, bought the Model A several years ago and has had it specially prepared at Juan’s Auto Service in Richmond for the grueling event. With just a few weeks until the burgundy drop top is shipped to the far east in preparation for the rally, the finishing touches and road-testing are being done to make sure it stands up to the test in some inhospitable conditions. “The car, originally, of course was built in the1930s when there weren’t many serious roads in the United States,” Gary said, as he visited the auto shop last week. “So, it is designed as a car that can go off road and can survive this sort of thing.” Gary has entered other rally events before, been a regular hiker to the Himalayas, a diver in Micronesia and sailed ocean and classic yachts around the globe, so his adventuring spirit is as well prepared as the mechanicals on the Model A will be.

Some of the modifications to the car include a secondary fuel tank, GPS equipment, four-point harnesses for both driver and navigator, and a more robust suspension, especially for the rear wheels to help it traverse the anticipated bumpy sections of the route. “And they’ve added plates underneath and lock nuts to just about every bolt so they don’t shake loose and fly off,” added John. “And there’s no power steering or power brakes,” says Juan Recavarren, owner of the garage where the work has been done. “So, we’ll be in really good shape by time the rally is done,” joked Gary. Jack Finch, who performed most of the rally prep work on the Model A, said he’s confident the car will hold up to the conditions. PHILIP RAPHAEL SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

The licence plate is ready to go on its Peking to Paris adventure.

“We’ve gone through the car quite well. Reinforced a lot of things we know would break on previous rallies. We’ve done our homework on it and made sure it’s ready to go.” A recent test drive trip in the Whistler area proved it could handle the rough going. “It survived it well,” said John, who is looking forward to sharing the adventure with his father. “It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity.” “I just want to see every interesting place in the world,” said Gary, who so far has had his passport stamped in 130 different countries. “Those are places I have visited for over two nights and know well.” While Gary has had plenty of other adventures to date, he thinks the upcoming rally will rank among one of the best he’s undertaken. “I’ve just wanted to do these silly things all my life,” he said, adding, “Some of the best parts are getting to meet people in these adventures who are nuttier than me.” For more information about the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge 2013, visit endurorally.com.

I’ve never liked shopping. Before this Christmas I’ve Anna always been more of a handToth me-down, no-name brand kind of person. But I started working in retail several months ago. I should have known that YOUTH what would begin as a curiosity-inspired stroll around the mall during my lunch break would eventually lead to some form of consumerist addiction. It’s all the sales that do it, I think. It just takes one large poster with that bold four lettered word to give me the feeling like I’ve caught something uniquely special. As I excitedly leaf through the hangers, trying to imitate the nonchalance of the more practised customers, I can’t help noticing all the mark downs. And then I stride out of the store with speed, so the cashiers can’t catch me if they change their mind. I’ve noticed the false feeling of accomplishment I get after each debit transaction. I come home after work and I have something to show for it — a new outfit. It’s tangible and everyone can see. But it’s false in the sense that, I haven’t become a better person because I’ve purchased a periwinkle blue sweatshirt for a fraction of its regular price. In my head I justify this superfluous spending. But most of the time, I know that I never did desperately need another dress or another pair of shoes. It’s an inexhaustible habit because there

will always be something new; something slightly better than the piece I had before. Something that could potentially make me question my last purchase. One’s wardrobe unfortunately can never really be complete. VIEWS There is both security and dependence that develop from this habit. Sure, I’ve noticed more compliments on my outfits, and this is a nice confidence booster. But a lot of the time there is a subtle undertone of jealousy. And sometimes it almost seems that nice clothes can get attention and admiration… but it’s not necessarily because of who you are, rather it’s because of what you have. And the scary thing is, it honestly doesn’t take long to get used to something like this. It’s a habit that I would like to stop. It’s only been a couple months, but I am already painfully aware of both my growing need to explore the shelves, and my dwindling selfcontrol when reaching for my wallet. It’s March, so this wouldn’t fall under the New Year’s resolution, which is probably for the best. New Year’s resolutions have a poor reputation for being abandoned rather quickly. I won’t be going cold turkey, but I’m setting limits. After all, it’s kind of a good idea to have some money in the bank. Anna Toth is a J.N. Burnett graduate and currently attends UBC.

Entrepreneurs debut at Vancouver Fashion Week BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

Many people have taken a clothing retail job at one point or another, whether part time while attending school, or as an entry point into the world of fashion. Richmond resident Jocelyn Neufeld took her years in the field and created her own

fashion line, EIK Design Inc., with business partner and friend Elisabet Kristófersdóttir. And now, the duo has been accepted to showcase their pieces next week at Vancouver Fashion Week from March 19 to 24. “I thought this would be a great way to take my retail experience in Richmond to the next level,” said the 29-year-old president of the company.

March 26 – 31, 2013

Vancouver Convention Centre

Neufeld and Kristófersdóttir met south of the border while completing their Bachelor of Fine Arts in fashion design at the Art Institute of Seattle five years ago. As Kristófersdóttir started to work on design projects in her home country of Iceland, Neufeld had the idea to start a business, having Kristófersdóttir design while she did the behind-the-scenes administrative work. “I always look to architecture for inspiration when designing,” said Kristófersdóttir, 30, adding the target demographic is women from 25 to 45. “The style is very European, mostly black, but there’s lots of texture.” Whether or not to enter fashion design was never a question for Kristófersdóttir, who grew up in a family of seamstresses. Her grandmother owned a fabric store. She’s known she wanted to make her own mark in the field since she was a child. “It’s European fashion, but it’s also very wearable,” said Neufeld. “A lot of new fashion designers try to break outside the box a little bit, and that’s not always as marketable to people. With this, you can wear some of the tops with jeans and it works.” PHOTO SUBMITTED

Eight months after they created the business, with a successful launch at a trade show in Las Vegas last month and a Canadian debut next week, EIK Design Inc. seems to be thriving. They have produced 36 pieces in total, ranging from black sequined leggings to a winter trench coat. Pricing runs anywhere from $50 to $350, according to Neufeld, and all products are made locally. Next week features the pieces in a runway show on March 20 and also in a Scan this page designer collection show- for more photos room later. and website Vancouver Fashion Week attracts fashionistas from across the globe.

Finances

Investing failure of the really smart people (The third of a 10-part series.) The Roman philosopher and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero once said: “Time destroys the speculation of men, but it confirms nature.” W E A LT H Time has not eroded the relevancy of these words, especially in regards to the financial markets. The longer the time frame, the more abysmal our track record in successfully picking the right stocks. In an efficient market, stock prices reflect all publicly available information — and only new information causes prices to change as investors adjust their views of the future. Since new information cannot be foretold, most stock pickers and investment managers fail to deliver long-term value. The Standard and Poor Indices Versus Active (SPIVA®) Scorecard regularly reports on the performance of actively managed Canadian mutual funds. For the five year period, ending Dec. 31, 2011, the SPIVA 2012 report gives us the per cent of actively managed funds that outperform their underlying index. 2.74 per cent of Canadian Equity managers outperformed the S&P/TSX Composite Total Return. The report has been adjusted for the fact that many of the poorly-performing funds of the past have been swept under

the carpet through fund closures or mergers with other funds. I don’t like those odds! Clearly, few active fund managers can outperform their respective market indices. S M A RT S Not enough bad news? The Dalbar QAIB 2012 (Quantitative Analysis of Investor Behavior) has found that more than the 20-year period ending Dec. 31, 2011, average investors substantially underperformed the market. During this timeframe, the S&P500 Index of U.S. stocks averaged a 7.81 per cent compound rate of return. Average U.S. investors only returned 3.49 per cent. That’s a difference of 4.32% that was collectively lost to bad behaviour, fees and expenses. This study is only done in the U.S. Professional fund managers are not idiots, nor is the average investor. However, I think there has clearly been a failure of the notion that we can pick the right stocks. Active fund management simply adds speculation risk. What to do? If you consider yourself an investor, don’t run for the hills and throw your money at the mercy of inflation-ravaged savings accounts and GICs. Rather, you need to find an advisor who is willing to face these truths, guide you through the factors of long term

Sharks show their bite at provincial tourney Gritty Steveston-London team proves to be one of the surprises with overtime loss leaving the girls in 9th place BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

Officially the Steveston-London Sharks finished ninth in their first-ever appearance at the B.C. AAA Girls Basketball Championships. An even bigger accomplishment was the level of respect this unheralded team earned. The Sharks entered last week’s 16-team tournament at the Langley Events Centre as a relative unknown. Their only significant accomplishment this season was an upset win over ninth ranked Burnaby South in the third place game at the Lower Mainland Championships that got them into the provincials. Many expected them to be overwhelmed in their opening game against a perennial powerhouse then quietly exit the championships with a loss in consolation play. Instead, the Sharks showed their grit and courage from start to finish against a steady diet of Fraser Valley teams. Steveston-London was within five points of Port Coquitlam’s Riverside Rapids with four minutes remaining before dropping a 79-66 decision in a entertaining first round match-up. The Sharks then moved onto the consolation side of the draw where they cruised passed Cranbrook’s Mt Baker 79-66 before an impressive 70-62 victory over WJ Mouat. The memorable campaign concluded Saturday afternoon with a 64-53 overtime loss to the Fleetwood Park Dragons in a battle for sixth place. The Sharks enjoyed a 46-39 second half before running out of steam. They were outscored 14-3 in the five minute overtime. The loss was overshadowed by what this group accomplished as the first Richmond team to reach the “AAA” tournament in 12 years. “One thing I told the kids, and most have now realize, is they belonged at this event with all these other teams,” said veteran coach Les Hamaguchi, making his first appearance at the provincials since 1996. “There is always people who have different opinions and we didn’t really play lot of top teams this year. No one really knew what we can do. Now they do.” Grade 12 star guard Anmol Mattu finally got a chance to bring her game to the province’s biggest stage and the former She led the tournament in scoring, averaging 28 points per game. The future Calgary Dinosaur was at her best against Mouat with 31 points and nine assists. She hauled in 13 rebounds in the loss to Riverside. Her Grade 10 backcourt mate Aliya Prasad also enjoyed a solid tournament, highlighted by her 24 points against Mouat. The progress of their teammates since December is what made this memorable run a reality. The unsung work of players such as Alyssa Graeme, Shayla Kaplan,

Sockeyes win pair at Minoru to take lead in Shaw Conference final The Richmond Sockeyes turned the table on the Delta Ice Hawks to take control of the latest installment of the Pacific International Junior Hockey League’s Tunnel Series. The Ice Hawks opened the best-of-seven Tom Shaw Conference final with a 4-0 win in Ladner then jumped out to a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes in game two last Thursday at Minoru Arena. That’s when the series momentum swung. Richmond stormed back with three unanswered goals for a 3-2 victory then rode the shutout goaltending of Kootenay Alder for a 2-0 game three win on Sunday. Dean Allison’s first period power play goal gave the hosts a 1-0 first period lead. It stayed that way until Jeremy Hamaguchi added another extra man tally with eight minutes remaining. The Hawks went 0-for-4 on the power play and didn’t produce a quality scoring chance in the final period thanks to the Sockeyes smothering defensive zone coverage, led by blueline workhorses Scott Wessa and Dominic Centis. Delta took a 104 minute scoreless stretch into game four last night. The return to Minoru Arena on Thursday (7:30 p.m.) for game five. Icing... Goals from Jake Roder and Daniel Tait just 20 seconds apart in the third period provided the difference in game two. Dean Allison had the other Richmond goal. Ice Hawks Anthony Brito missed both games in Richmond with an undisclosed injury that likely occurred on a open ice hit from Centis in the series opener The veteran centre, who was third in PIJHL scoring this season, took the pre-game skate for game three but was scratched.

opportunity they are giving me next season as a freshman.” Stecher helped the Richmond Blues reach the Bantam A1 provincial championship game in his final season with the local association. He then played for the Greater Vancouver

Canadians of the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League and was named the team’s MVP before signing with Penticton. As the Vees’ captain, he has a career best 47 points this season, which ranks him third among BCHL defenseman. He also

has career highs in goals (eight) and assists (39). Including the playoffs, Stecher has played in 182 games in Vees colours, while amassing 22 goals and 123 points. “We are very happy for Troy, as he has been a great leader, teammate

and role model for our organization in the past three years,” said Vees Head Coach and GM Fred Harbinson. “Troy’s presence on our blue-line will be greatly missed next year; but we are excited to watch his career continue at UND.”

Anmol Mattu will be heading east of the Rockies to continue her basketball career next fall. A day after leading the B.C. “AAA” Girls Basketball Championships in scoring, the dynamic Steveston-London Sharks Grade 12 point guard announced she has committed to the University of Calgary Dinosaurs. Her decision culminates an extensive process that began last September when Mattu began to narrow down her potential post-secondary destinations. The fact Calgary is part of the Canada West Conference and will make at least four visits to the West Coast next season won over Montreal’s McGill University. “It’s just a real good fit for me,” said Mattu. “I’m so close to my family and it was tough at first realizing my best opportunities would be outside of B.C. Calgary being not far from to home definitely factored into my decision, especially the number of times I will be playing out here.” Mattu was given a tour of the school in January by Jessica Franz and Megan Schaufele, a pair of fifth-year seniors from B.C. who she got to know during her days as a youngster with the DRIVE Basketball Academy. Under first year coach Damian Jennings, the Dinos have enjoyed a dominant season and will be competing at this

Anmol Mattu

weekend’s CIS National Championships in Regina. “It didn’t take me long to realize it was the right place for me to be,” continued Mattu. A rare five-year starter for the Sharks, Mattu concluded her high school career by helping Steveston-London become the first Richmond team since the 2001 McRoberts Strikers to qualify for the provincial championships at the elite “AAA” level. “We came so far in the past couple of months,” she added. “We were more like a family than a basketball team. I’m going to miss everyone.”
