Coal dust concerns sail into view

Councillor worried about pollution from plan to barge millions of tonnes of fossil fuel BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

“It’s right up there at the top of ... incredibly bad projects for the Fraser.”

Special to the News

The possibility that coal barges will soon be plying the south arm of the Fraser River has raised concerns about the environmental impact it could have on the waterway and Richmond residents. “It’s right up there at the top of the list of incredibly bad projects for the Fraser River Estuary,” said Coun. Harold Steves. “It’s the same as having Panamex tankers shipping jet fuel down the river. Except, in this case we’re going to accept coal from the States which is being rejected by American citizens for shipping out of their communities, and we’re looking to ship it out of Canada because our environmental laws are so lax that we’re ripe for the picking.” Surrey Fraser Docks submitted a project permit application last summer to Port Metro Vancouver to develop a coal transfer facility just off the south eastern tip of Annacis Island that would initially handle up to four million metric tonnes annually from a massive deposit in the western U.S., called the Powder River Basin. The proposal is to initially ship coal down the river in 284-foot-long by 72-foot-wide barges roughly once a day (320 trips) during the first year. In years two to five, the number

— Coun. Harold Steves of trips down the river is planned to double to 640. Year six would see it double again to 1,280 trips and move eight million tones of coal. Each trip would be made by one barge pulled by a tug. Once the barges reach the Sand Heads area off Steveston Harbour, just beyond the mouth of the Fraser River, they will be Scan page to see related story tied to a second one to complete the trip in tandem to Texada Island where a storage and distribution facility would load the coal onto deep sea vessels bound for markets in Asia. Each barge has the capacity to haul 8,000 DWT (dead weight tonnage) and will be filled to 85 per cent of their maximum. The weight is roughly equivalent to 3,746 average-sized cars.

Steves said one of his main concerns is the health of those along the proposed route due to dust coming from the coal while being transported, and the global environmental impact of burning coal. “It’s coal dust, but it’s also the fact that as far as I’m concerned the burning of coal should be curtailed worldwide. There should be no new coal plants burning coal.” Former federal fishery biologist and aquatic ecologist Otto Langer said his overarching concerns focus on the future nature of the Fraser River. “Basically, what do we want the lower Fraser River for,” he said. “Do we want to make it into a Rotterdam-type port, which is where Port Metro Vancouver seems to want to go with shipping jet fuel, the Roberts Bank expansion, and now coal.” Rotterdam is Europe’s largest port and was the world’s busiest until 2002 when eclipsed by Shanghai. Langer added he is also fearful of the environmental concerns to wildlife. “Coal dust will clog the gills of fish and do damage,” he said. “It’s a fairly sharp, abrasive material. Coal per se is not toxic itself, but it’s a pretty nasty, little, fine, angular material that can do a lot of damage to the fine gill tissues of animals that live in the ocean.” see City page 5

Hockey mom can’t stop saying yes Lynne Kiang has devoted 21 years of her life to the sport

BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Lynne Kiang loves hockey almost as much as life itself and has trouble saying “no” to anyone involved in the game. For the last 21 years, the mom of two has devoted the vast majority of her free time either at the ice rink or organizing stuff off it. From team manager to tournament chair to ice scheduler, Kiang has done everything, bar coaching for either Richmond Minor Hockey or the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association. So it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows her that she’s made it to the final 20 in the Kraft Hockey Goes On contest — which recognizes volunteerism in the sport and carries a top prize of $100,000 for the winner’s association. “It was all my husband’s fault,” said Kiang about why she first stepped into the local hockey scene in 1992 as a team manager. “He and his friend decided to become non-parent coaches and part of the way through that season, the team manager quit and I was asked to step in. “I did that for the next couple of years and then they needed help with running a tournament. I became chair of that tournament in my year involved with it.” Even giving birth to her first child, Ben, in 1995 didn’t stop her from taking on yet another role at Richmond Minor Hockey, this time

ALAN CAMPBELL/RICHMOND NEWS

Lynne Kiang, one of 20 volunteers being recognized in the Kraft Hockey Goes On contest for her unflagging devotion to the sport, has a chance to win $100,000 for the Richmond Hockey Association. as divisional manager. “Someone said to me, ‘I guess you can’t help out now?’” recalled Kiang. “I said, ‘why?’ I just came to the rink each time with Ben in my arms and when I eventually had two toddlers running around, I brought the two of them with me as well. They ran around under the table while I volunteered.” And during her many years as

the association’s ice scheduler, there were many hair-raising weeks and months of solving the allocation puzzle. “Back in those days it was a lot more difficult, we didn’t have email or the Internet and only a few people had cell phones,” she said. “It was all old fashioned phone calls. And one year the ‘igloo’ broke down and we had to rotate the closure around everyone’s schedule.

“We basically had to have a new schedule every day, it was crazy.” Kiang now spends most of her free time working for the Pacific Coast Midgets Rep League and was genuinely humbled when she learned of her contest nomination and finalist berth. “It’s a complete shock and an honour to be in there with so many other great names.” This past season has also been extra special for Kiang, as she basked in the parental glow of being able to witness her sons, now age 17 and 15, playing on the same team for the first time. So why, given the personal significance of the year just passed and having put in an incredible 21-year shift, would she keep doing what she’s doing? “When I see their smiling faces at the end of a game or when they score a goal, it makes it all worthwhile,” admitted Kiang. “I love the sport, the people, the kids. It’s one of the best games in the world. There are other sports with great volunteers, but there’s nothing quite like hockey.” The grand prize winner from the Pacific region will win $100,000 for their selected minor hockey association. Four second prize winners will be awarded $20,000 for their selected associations.

Destination museum dream re-floated BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Not for the first time, a “destination museum,” costing up to $59 million, is back on the table in Richmond. Hot on the heels of the proposed $5million Olympic museum, city staff are backing a consultant’s recommendation to push ahead with an attraction that will, apparently, pull in thousands of visitors from across the Lower Mainland. A report due to be presented to a city council committee Tuesday claimed the

Baxter: Museum is ‘necessary’ Continued from page 3 Rough estimates indicate that such a venue would potentially “break even” financially by its fifth year. A slightly smaller project, at 60,000 square feet and costing $48 million, would take six years to break even. Building a “community museum” would not be worthwhile, according to the report, as it would have limited appeal and wouldn’t be able to draw in visitors from outside the city. “The City of Richmond is growing rapidly and the increased — and increasingly diverse — population has created a tremendous demand for new services,” said Connie Baxter, the city’s museum and heritage services supervisor, in her report. “A new museum is a necessary component of a balanced and healthy community that requires significant cultural, as well as athletic, facilities. “It will be a major civic asset, an economic generator and a source of community pride.” Baxter added that Richmond’s central location in Metro Vancouver makes it accessible for a major cultural attraction. The study, carried out by the Arlington Group, insists that a destination museum is

financially feasible in Richmond and would be best served in a city centre location, close to the Canada Line. It added that there’s not nearly enough destination attractions in the Lower Mainland that can host international exhibits and Richmond could tap into that market. More refined costing would materialize should the project enjoy city council approval and proceed to a “master plan” stage. Any such museum could also tell the “Richmond Story,” according to Baxter. Other city centre locations suggested by the consultant included: " Lansdowne Village (northwest corner); " Minoru Park; " Bridgeport Village. And in Steveston, Bayview and No. 1 Road was suggested, along with the Phoenix Net Loft location. City staff are now asking council to place a destination museum on the priority list for new facilities in the capital budget. Since the original idea was put on the back burner four years ago, staff argue that the global economy has picked up and Richmond put itself on the map with the success of hosting speed skating in the 2010 Games.

Candy store owner has sweet idea

Food bank benefits as Once Upon a Time season finale expected to wrap up filming today BY JAKE HEWER

" Got a story for the News? Email us at editor@richmondnews.com

Special to the News

As the owner of a candy store it would be safe to assume Shirley Hartwell has a sweet tooth. Now we can also confirm her as one of Richmond’s biggest sweethearts. Hartwell presented the Richmond Food Bank a cheque for $300 on Monday and it’s all because of a little idea she had last summer. She decided to make her very own brochures for the locally filmed ABC television show Once Upon a Time, showing off various locations around Steveston that are used for the show. “I designed the brochure which is a walking tour of Steveston with all the place names of what the stores are now and what they become when they are transformed when we go from Steveston to Storybrooke,” said Hartwell, referring to the fictional town that Steveston doubles as during filming. The brochures were given to customers for a donation of $2 to the Richmond Food Bank and Hartwell was able to raise $300 since the donations began last summer. “We started that around August, so from August to now we’ve raised $300 for the food bank and that represents about 150 people that come here,” said

JAKE HEWER/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Shirley Hartwell of The Candy Dish, right, donated $300 to Margaret Hewlett, of the Richmond Food Bank.

Hartwell. She got the idea for the brochures after she put up a Once Upon a Time-themed window display last year. It attracted a lot of customers, “more so than the candy I think actually,” she laughed. Hartwell is a huge fan of the show. “I watch it all the time, I’m right up to date on it,” she said. She has even made some fairy talethemed treats in honour of the show. “We’ve also started making Snow White fudge, and that’s really taking off.

It’s bubblegum flavour with magic fairy sprinkles,” said Hartwell. “The kids are liking Snow White fudge and people who want a souvenir have something to take home.” Once Upon a Time will be filming its season finale on Wednesday afternoon. Scan page to see more photos and video

City: Yet to take a position on coal movement

Continued from page 1 Currently, Fraser Surrey Docks is a multi-purpose terminal moving containers, steel, agricultural products and special equipment, said Jim Crandles, the port authority’s director of planning and development. No new berths are required at the site and no storage of coal is expected, except for emergency purposes, Crandles added. Since the proposed project is being planned on port property and no specific development is earmarked for the marine environment, Port Metro Vancouver is the sole agency involved in granting the permit to proceed. Part of its project review process includes an environmental review component.

Issues of noise, dust and other environmental affects like a spill in the marine environment are all part of the review process, “and an important part of this one,” Crandles said. Since the project’s permit was applied for, the port authority has undertaken public reviews and has been in contact with regional governments along the proposed route. The coal would be transported to the dock via railcar from the Powder River Basin, a geologic region in southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming that supplies about 40 per cent of coal in the United States. Surrey and White Rock councils have already voiced opposition to the plan, focusing concerns on the increase

of coal train traffic through the two communities. Richmond has not taken any position on that issue to date, said city spokesman Ted Townsend. We do have concerns about the proposed expansion at Roberts Bank in regards to the additional truck traffic that would generate through the tunnel and Richmond, Townsend said. Council passed a formal motion in February and staff have been monitoring the public consultation process. No date has been set for granting approval for the project. “We’re still working on details with the proponent and still in review and haven’t set a specific timeline,” Crandles said.

MP on fence about riding BY PHILIP RAPHAEL Special to the News

Delta or Richmond? Delta Richmond-East MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay has not made a decision which one she’d like to serve if plans go ahead to redraw federal electoral boundaries between the two communities. “I haven’t yet because I’ve been building relationships on both sides of the river and met many wonderful people,” she said from Ottawa last week. “So, it’s going to be tough for me to make that choice. But I’ll have to do it over the course of the coming year.”

In February, the House of Commons tabled a report for the Federal Election Boundaries Commission for B.C., which redrew the province’s federal electoral map. Under the proposal, B.C. is gaining six electoral districts, bringing the total to 42, as well as seeing constituency boundaries shifted. Part of the proposed shift would be the creation of two Richmond-only ridings — Richmond West and Steveston-Richmond East. Delta would then have a single MP as the federal riding of North Delta would be absorbed. see Decision page 7

Decision: Once house sells

Continued from page 6 Canada’s electoral districts are reviewed every 10 years by independent commissions in each province and changes are made based on population numbers, as captured by the federal census, as well as other factors, such as communities of interest or identity. According to the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission, the new boundaries are likely to be in effect for the next fixed federal election date of Oct. 19, 2015. Findlay, who divides her time between constituents in South Delta

and east Richmond, said she liked the idea because it would allow the MP to focus on a single community. “I think it’s good because in Richmond we have two MPs now, but we will have two electoral districts within Richmond,” Findlay said. Findlay, who was elected in May 2011, still lives in Vancouver and has yet to secure a home in the riding, but has her home up for sale. “As soon as it sells, I will make my declaration (on which riding), and that’s where I’ll be going,” she said.

Passenger dead on arrival from Hawaii A passenger was pronounced dead when her flight arrived at YVR from Hawaii early Monday morning. The woman, in her late 60s, had flown in on the WestJet 1883 from Hawaii at 6:45 a.m. The airport’s airfield and emergency services team, ambulances and bike paramedics from BC Ambulance attended along with Richmond Fire-Rescue and the RCMP but, according to reports, there was nothing that could be done to revive the woman. Neither the cause of death or the passenger’s identity has been released.

olière’s Don Juan is a wicked comedy that has endured centuries of retellings. Blackbird Theatre’s John Wright tells us what he Tnds exciting about directing this once-scandalous play for a modern audience.

What made you want to adapt Don Juan? Molière is a great master of theatrical comedy, and I think Don Juan, with its famous anti-hero, is his most modern play. It opened in 1665, outraged church and court and was closed in two weeks. Molière’s original script was not staged again for two centuries and is rarely produced today. It has many challenges for a modern company, but we think audiences will Tnd this brilliant satire still suits our age and has plenty of bite.

Who’s steering the bus?

T

he report commissioned for the TransLink mayor’s council Friday aired conclusions that were little surprise to anyone. The way TransLink is governed is dysfunctional and as the report writers dryly noted “unique, and not in a good way.” Other metropolitan cities around the world apparently have this crazy idea that those who fund and are directly affected by transportation decisions should have some say in them, through elected representatives. This, of course, is not the case with TransLink — ever since the province and local mayors got into a bun fight over which major projects should have priority. The current system is extremely convenient for the province, allowing Victoria to remain essentially in control while keeping up the appearances of a local organization for citizens to blame in the case of public gripes. Of which there have been an abundant share. Understandably, nobody is keen to wear TransLink’s many problems. Local mayors don’t want to be blamed for property tax increases when they have no say in the decisions that prompted them. The province isn’t jumping for joy at the prospect of raising carbon, vehicle or sales taxes on an outraged public either. But the system needs more money. That’s a problem that’s not going away anytime soon. Changing the governance structure would be a good first step. But the issues of who’s going to pay the piper will remain, regardless of which party forms the next government.

CHOICE WORDS

Chinese signs affect tourism The Editor: It is pointless to waste money promoting the north end of No. 3 Road as Richmond’s Chinatown or Golden Village if the merchants themselves don’t welcome the non-Chinese-speaking visitor. Many people coming down No. 3 Road encounter much signage they cannot read. What does that say about Richmond’s attitude towards those who come here to visit or shop? Visitors will not perceive this as an issue of new immigrant merchants who do not understand, instead, they will assume these signs have been approved by the city. The 1,000-name petition represents a significant number that should not be summarily dismissed. City councillors can, and have been, wrong about issues brought forward by members of the public. For example, three major municipal assets, the parks of Terra Nova, Garry Point Park and Brighouse, exist today because the public challenged the city’s plans for these areas. By avoiding today’s signage issue, our council has missed an opportunity to demonstrate that Richmond is both a worthy destination for visitors and a truly inclusive community for residents. And now, because we haven’t dealt with the issue, Metro media are mocking Richmond’s situation (The Vancouver Sun editorial cartoon, March 23). It’s time for some leadership from city hall.

Dix’s cabinet will show party direction Not a day goes by without the B.C. Liberals demanding their NDP counterparts release details of their election platform, only to be met with silence. NDP leader Adrian Dix says the party will release its fiscal plan in early April, and will announce other various policy positions throughout the campaign. But an election platform is just one of the ways to gain insight into what an NDP government would bring to the table. Another tool is to look at which individuals may become more powerful than others. Most of them will be in the provincial cabinet, but others will exist outside government. The biggest holder of power of all is the premier of course, and if Dix does indeed take that position it will be interesting to see if he consolidates power in that office as his predecessors have done. There will be others who will emerge as the ones who have more political influence than others. Here is a partial list of those who will likely play key roles in the next administration. John Horgan: He’s the current NDP house leader and will undoubtedly become energy minister. He’s closer to Dix than most and is definitely not part of the environmental wing of the party — which suggests there may be some friction with that group down the road. He’s also fairly volatile and he can

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

lose his temper easier than most — a trait that doesn’t serve cabinet ministers particularly well. Bruce Ralston: The party’s finance critic will likely become finance minister, and his extremely low-key approach will match what will likely be some unexciting budgets. Ralston will be saying “no” to all kinds of requests. Carole James: Dix owes a huge debt of gratitude to the woman he replaced as leader after a caucus revolt forced her to resign. If James had left politics on an understandably bitter note, it would have been difficult, if not impossible, for the NDP to become as united as it has. But James, a class act, has stuck around bearing no grudges and will likely become deputy premier with a major cabinet post, probably education or a social services ministry. Other current NDP MLAs who will wield considerable influence are former cabinet minister Mike Farnworth, caucus chair Shane Simpson and Sue Hammell, who practically delivered the leadership to Dix through mass membership sign-ups in Surrey. When it comes to unelected people who will

wield some influence over an NDP government, the list includes: Jim Sinclair: As head of the B.C. Federation of Labour, Sinclair will have considerable influence over a party that is closely aligned to organized labour. Look for him to push hard for some pro-union labour law changes. Glen Clark: The former premier is, of course, a mentor of Dix’s. Clark is now Jimmy Pattison’s right hand man, and will undoubtedly provide Dix some business-friendly advice on a regular basis. Geoff Meggs: The Vancouver city councillor worked with Dix in the Clark government and there’s no doubt Dix would have preferred to see him win the party nomination in Vancouver-Fairview. Meggs will be the main back-channel contact on Vancouver city council for a Dix-led government, but it will be interesting to see if Dix offers Meggs a more formal and senior role. Moe Sihota: The former cabinet minister is president of the NDP, and was closely associated with Clark while in government. He shares Dix’s view that the NDP needs to focus on winning a second term in government, not just one, and therefore can’t alienate voters. These folks can show you where the NDP is headed if they win in May. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

POLITICS

Candidate should do his homework The Editor, Re: “Tunnel suddenly a Liberal priority,” Letters, March 13. I read with some amusement, the letter from the independent candidate for Richmond Centre. I strongly suggest he do a little more homework if he expects to be taken seriously in the debate on public policy in the province. He has insulted the three Richmond MLAs claiming we have done nothing on the issue of the Massey Tunnel. His claim is patently, and outright, false. I have worked on this issue here and in Victoria, MLA Linda Reid has worked on this issue and MLA John Yap has worked on this issue. Our work

has spanned many years and has been focused on both long-term and nearterm solutions. I have also worked on this issue as a city councillor. I would also have to observe that not once has Gary Law approached me or my office with his concerns in the 12 years I have been working on this and its many related issues. Need I remind Law that the Nelson Road Connector is a related infrastructure, and has been very successful. This came about, in good part, because of the tireless efforts of MLA Reid. Next, a complaint about the length of time it will take… Really? Large multi-jurisdictional projects need extended time frames. Consultations

with the public and stakeholders, local governments including First Nations, environmental assessments, seismic, geotechnical and engineering studies on the options, and construction of major infrastructure, takes time. Would Law prefer we skip one or two of these segments? He then offers obfuscation when it comes to how to pay for the tunnel — apparently not wanting to use tax payers’ dollars, nor does he seem to want tolls. I for one wonder how he suggests we pay for such a large undertaking? So, if we are keeping score, that’s two wrongs and one obfuscation. Rob Howard MLA, Richmond Centre

Nothing wrong with taxpayers paying for tunnel The Editor, Re: “Tunnel suddenly a Liberal priority,” Letters, March 13. Where did this business about the need for a radiotransmitting antenna inside the Massey Tunnel, that Gary Law refers to, come from? In all the 36 years I have lived in Richmond, I have never once heard anyone mention it. He certainly isn’t speaking to voters about what the main concerns are for the people in Richmond if he thinks anyone has even considered this as an issue. The tunnel was upgraded a number of years ago, but not to standards that would

allow it to withstand the Big One. That is why it is important that major changes need to be undertaken. And yes, we have to pay for it. I have lived in the Lower Mainland all my life and can remember when there was no tunnel. We took a ferry across to Ladner, which had a fee attached, and when the tunnel opened, it was tolled as were just about all bridges at the time. What is wrong with user pay? How would Mr. Law pay for major infrastructure improvements such as this? What other things would he tax to provide them? Or what services would he cut?

Or maybe he thinks by putting in a radio-transmitting antenna we wouldn’t need to make any changes to the tunnel. Anyone with an ounce of sense can see that a radio-transmitting antenna would just be a waste of our tax dollars. Honestly, picking on something so bizarre that isn’t even in the Richmond Centre riding boundaries to focus on as an issue makes me ask myself if Mr. Law knows anything about the real issues facing us in Richmond. He appears to be very ill-informed. I am curious to know what his next priority will be and if it is as ill-consid-

ered as this proposal. Perhaps he should spend more of his resources finding out what those of us who live in Richmond Centre expect from our MLA and the provincial government, and less time and money on advertising himself. Louise Young Richmond

Time for Yap, team to step down The Editor, A week ago, MLA John Yap stepped down because of parliamentary tradition, according to him. As it turns out, that wasn’t the only reason. The smoke he was blowing concealed a fire after all. The investigation into the Liberal ethnic outreach plan didn’t exonerate exminister Yap or his government. His self-admitted breach of the public service code warrants his resignation and more. He says he is to be held to a higher standard and then attempts to minimize his error in judgement and excuses himself with, “I sincerely believed.” It seems Yap, not only can’t tell the empress she has no clothes, but hasn’t looked in the mirror lately himself. He and his government’s numerous lapses in ethics

Arts&Culture Gateway fosters creativity, new plays A handful of local directors crosspollinating with four Canadian playwrights working on three plays makes a mixture brimming with creativity. It’s a recipe Gateway Theatre is trying for the first time with its eighth annual SceneFirst series, usually a three-day event now stretched out to six days this year. “It’s more about work-shopping a play and working with other local actors and directors,” said Amy Strilchuk, Gateway’s artistic associate. The annual plays-in-progress event typically accepts three submissions and has the writers read through their play in front of audiences for one night. “The goal is to read new work from Canadian playwrights and find works we’re interested in producing,” said Strilchuk, adding that being accepted by SceneFirst usually increases the likelihood of production. “We also want to gauge audience response and see what’s the best fit for our audiences.” This year, the playwrights have been working with directors since Monday, turning the process into more of a collaboration, before reading in front of audiences this Thursday to Saturday. The week offers a unique opportunity for playwrights to work with actors and directors during the preliminary stages of the writing process — some-

Northey (left to right), Stacey Kaser, Alison Kelly and Guillermo Verdecchia participate in Gateway’s annual plays-in-progress event SceneFirst. thing usually reserved until after the play has been written. “I’m excited about this process,” said Stacey Kaser, first-time playwright, but long-time television scriptwriter. “I’m usually lucky if we get an hour to read through, so it’s great to collaborate with the directors and actors.” Kaser co-wrote Conversations with My Mother with Alison Kelly. In their comedy, two sisters are haunted by their dead mother, prompting them to drag out old skeletons. “It was a fun process and the topic is fertile ground for a play,” said Kaser, a mother herself, who based the play on her own mother. “These conversations are something we can all relate to.” While Kaser hopes the play doesn’t undergo too much change throughout the week, Guillermo Verdecchia is seeking a radical transformation for Galicia. His one-man play about globalization began as a performance lec-

ture for his theatre studies class at the University of Toronto. Now, Verdecchia is hoping that after working with four different directors this week, they can change it into something more theatrical. “The play is a journey about selfdiscovery and rediscovery of one’s real place in the world,” he said. As cities blend and time warps, Verdecchia’s character always finds himself confronted by Starbucks, posing questions about identity and belonging. “It’s more personal, you have a more intimate connection to the audience,” he said about the one-man format. Kicking off the series on Thursday is Michael P. Northey’s Falling to Pieces about a man’s unraveling as he lacks the proper means to treat his mental illness. The fast-paced narrative is comparable to a mystery or a Tarantino film. For more information, visit www. gatewaytheatre.com.

The streets are lined with more than 50 restaurants that offer local fare from different ethnicities and regions,

RESTAURANTS

Old, new tastes coexist along Steveston’s streets BY MICHELLE HOPKINS Special to the News

Steveston was a lot different 35 years ago when one of its original restaurants opened its doors on Moncton Street. The landmark Steveston Seafood House has been a local favourite for those craving its signature entrees such as the Garry Point platter, a medley of halibut, prawns, scallops and shrimp sautéed and served in a New Orleans cream sauce, or the wild salmon in a white wine dill sauce. Stevestonite Shane Dagan bought the restaurant 5 and a half years ago, after working for the former owner as a 15-year-old busboy. In keeping with its moniker, the fine dining restaurant serves up award-winning seafood dishes such as its jambalaya and clam chowder (both won a Vancouver Sun award). Executive chef Sushila Narain has been at the helm of the kitchen for 32 years. As often as possible, she buys locally sourced wild fish in season. Recently, the restaurant received a facelift. “We’ve painted, replaced the

chairs and the linen and we are putting in two eight-foot long modern fireplaces that will be flushed into the wall,” said Dagan, adding that right now, the restaurant is featuring its yearly lobster festival. As well, Dagan replaced the lighting for some contemporary new chandeliers and added new art work. One of the village’s first ethnic restaurants, Kisamos Taverna, has changed ownership. Serving authentic Greek cuisine since 1997, Kisamos was recently bought by longtime Vancouver chef Marino Anagnostopoulos. Originally from Kalamata, Greece, the executive chef comes from a long line of restaurateurs. He honed his culinary skills watching his grandmother and mother cook up such timeless dishes as moussaka, souvlakia and roast lamb. The affable chef said he chose Steveston because “it reminds me of the village I grew up in in Greece.” “I’d been looking for an eatery to buy for a long time, so when I heard Kisamos was for sale, I bought it,” he said. Although Anagnostopoulos

has not made many changes to the original menu, on weekends the chef features his own specials, such as his family recipes for Cornish game hen and seafood casserole.

Many of the employees are also the same friendly faces that have been there for years. Executive chef Kulvinder Toor has been there since it opened and

kitchen helper Harjit Kaur has been there for 13 years. Anagnostopoulos looks forward to welcoming loyal clientele and promises that those popular dishes Kisamos clients have enjoyed for years will remain on the menu. Just slightly off the beaten path is Caesars Bar & Grill. Nearly four years ago, another longtime Vancouver restaurateur, David Koonar, was lured by the beauty and uniqueness of Steveston. “I owned a number of different Vancouver eateries over the years, but I was looking to relocate and fell in love with Steveston,” said Koonar. Two years ago, he brought on board a young exciting executive chef, Ronnie Poon, who is creating some buzz with her fusion cooking. A Red Seal certified chef since 2011, Poon sources local produce and fish in season. The Steveston resident’s newest dish, a pan seared wild salmon in a miso broth and bok choy bean sprouts, tomatoes and pea pods is garnering rave reviews. The lamb osso bucco falls off the fork — it’s that tender.

Pho’s: Authentic Vietnamese Bistro features Top Chef contender Continued from page 14 Her jambalaya and thin slice pulled pork pizza are signature favourites. Caesars is an Italian restaurant with a twist and in the summer the patio fills up with residents who appreciate great, fresh fare at good prices. “We host Wino Wednesdays, and customers can buy a bottle of wine for a third of the regular price,” said Koonar. One of the newest kids on the block is Steveston Village Vietnamese Restaurant (Pho’s) on No. 1 Road. Run by Son and his wife Phung Nguyen, and their sons Justin and Richard, this quaint 50-seat eatery has already become a popular local spot amongst those who crave authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Phung is the executive chef, who along with Richard, creates genuine fare from her native countryside. Southern Vietnamese cuisine features a lot of fresh vegetables and herbs. “My parents pick up fresh vegetables from the farmers on their way to work each day,” said Justin, who bakes the restaurant’s coconut cake. Pho’s signature items include the house special chicken noodle soup, which uses local free range chicken, the house special sample platter and the crispy noodles with seafood and mixed vegetables. For those with a serious sweet tooth, Diplomat Bakery is renowned for its sinfully delicious cakes and pies. Its triple chocolate mousse, Diplomat, lemon chocolate cheese and red velvet cakes are renowned

Algrai: Celebrated 10 years Continued from page 15 before attempting this style of cooking. He spent time down south sampling some of Kansas City’s top barbecue dishes. One of Hog Shack’s specials, its doublesmoked brisket tips, dubbed burnt ends, sell out within hours. (You have to check Twitter or Facebook to get these delicacies). “The burnt ends spend 20 hours in our smoker,” says Hing, who also makes the corn bread and coleslaw daily. “It’s like a campfire in your mouth.” With sweeping million dollar views of the Fraser River, Charthouse Restaurant is another landmark eatery on the Steveston Harbour. Proprietor George Triantafillou took over the two decade-plus seafood eatery two years ago. Its fishermen’s seafood platter, prawns Madagascar and its scallop provincial have been staples on the menu for years and some loyal clientele order one of these three signatures dishes every time they come in. For three decades, Richmondites headed to No. 3 Road when they had a craving for Italian food. Then, in 2010, Paesano’s Fine Italian Cuisine opened its doors on Bayview Street. Executive chef/owner Satinder Jaswal couldn’t be happier. This is his fourth spring in his Steveston locale. Always trying to keep the menu fresh, Jaswal is introducing a chicken breast Toscano, a veal piccata with lemon butter caper sauce and a penne D’Angelo spicy shrimp and chicken sausage. His angel hair paradise is a local favourite. It’s a delicious medley of bocconcini cheese, fresh tomatoes and garlic. Every morning, Jaswal heads to the local markets for his produce. For those who want to enjoy breakfast or lunch in a casual, hip little café, head over to Alegrai Cafe on First Avenue. There, chef/ owner Narbada Langham whips up muffins and scones that melt in your mouth and a selection of two daily soups. At 7 a.m. she’s already in the kitchen creating her signature pasta salad and whatever other green salad she fancies on that day,

Alegria hosts Story Café, old and new stories from near and far, which are shared on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 p.m. “It’s been really popular since we started four years ago,” says Langham.

CREATING COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH FUNDS WITH THE RICHMOND COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

S

Since 1990, the Richmond Community Foundation has provided grants to over 80 community organizations that are improving the quality of life in Richmond. The funds that provide these grants have been set up with the Foundation by individuals and families who want to make a difference. The aim of each fund is determined by the donor and guides allocations. Grants have funded initiatives that range from promotion of arts and culture, services which support children, families, seniors and disabled persons, as well

as other programs which enhance the well being of Richmond citizens. While Richmond has been deemed one of the healthiest cities in Canada, it has one of the highest rates of visible tooth decay in five year old children in BC. Since 2007, the Dr. Bud Sipko Memorial Fund, held at Richmond Community Foundation, has supported the oral health of children by distributing Dental Hygiene Packs to families through the Richmond Food Bank. Children’s oral health supplies, which include toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss, are given out three times a year when Richmond

Public Health staff and UBC dental students are on site providing dental screening and referrals. These supplies are much appreciated by families who want to ensure that their children have healthy teeth. Dr. Sipko began his dental career in Richmond in 1969 and enthusiastically valued the growth, diversity, and community spirit of Richmond and its citizens. He believed strongly in preventive dentistry and worked actively during his lifetime to support the ideal of making dentistry available to everyone. The Dr. Bud Sipko Memorial Fund continues his work.

What do you think of fasting cleansing? Qand

A

The nature of Spring is one of cleansing and rejuvenation. Fasting quickens the cleansing. Strict, prolonged fasts with fruit juices or water can severely impair the Spleen-pancreas digestive fire and weaken the body. This can result in abnormal weight gain after the fast. Slower, milder fasts with selected whole foods can bring remarkable healing to those with excess conditions. Cleansing can be successfully done with undereating, generally. Use young plants, fresh greens, sprouts, and cereal grasses. Pungent herbs such as basil, fennel, marjoram, ginger, etc. in raw, lightly steamed or sauteed dishes are effective. People with deficiency conditions should avoid fasting. They can do some mild cleansing with caution, preferably in conjunction with their health provider.

Q

Have the Government changes to amortization periods really taken some buyers right out of the market? Well qualified buyers are still well heeled to purchase a home even with a 25 year amortization period. With the changes to a shorter amortization the Federal Government has allowed a slight increase in the percentage of your income allowable for your mortgage payments. Coupled up with 5 year rates hovering around the 3% mark many first time buyers are not only getting into their first home, they are saving 5 years in interest versus those who purchase at a higher rate with a 30 year amortization.

Q A

What adjustments could I expect when I have new full dentures made?

Generally if the bite is correct, the vertical height of your dentures are correct, then adjustments should be of a muscular nature only. Adjustments can be expected on the lower denture inside by the back of your tongue. This is where muscles attach to your jaw bone. These muscles extend to your throat and to your tongue. They are part of your swallowing process. At first when dentures are placed, they may feel fine, but they do settle into your tissues, the same way that a ring impresses into the tissue of your finger. A sharp pain and or a pinching feeling may become evident in as little as two to three days. Regarding full upper dentures, they may become sore at the front of the denture in the frenum notch (the small piece of skin that holds your lips to your gums) or at the incisal papilla (the small bump of tissue that sits between your two front teeth). Both type of adjustments are considered normal setting adjustments and only take a matter of minutes to remedy. If you would like information on this or any other dental related subject, please book a free consultation with us.

EXPERT Nari

A

No, you do not need a Notary to prepare the documents for a legal name change, but you will need the services of a Notary when signing the Statutory Declaration that is required for your Application for Change of Name. If you would like to do the name change yourself, you may request an “Application for Change of Name” from the British Columbia Vital Statistics Agency. The application form will explain basic eligibility requirements; give instructions and some expected costs. From the previous information I have received, the Minister of Finance fee for one person is $137.00, $25.00 for a criminal records check, plus $27.00 for each child included in the application.

Q A

What is Asbestos and why is it a problem in many older homes?

Asbestos is a natural mineral that has been used in several building materials for its strength, flexibility, diversity and insulating qualities. Manufactureres stopped using it in the early 1980’s due to health risks associated to prolonged exposure, such as Mesothelioma cancer. When asbestos is left undisturbed, there are no current health risks. However, during renovation work, for example, the tiny fibers are rleased into the air where they can be inhaled. That is what can lead to cancer a number of years later. Asbestos was commonly used in the following building materials: • Roofing materials (felt and shingles) • Attic insulation, called Vermiculite • Insulation around pipes and duct work • Many Textured paints • Cement pipes • Vinyl & linoleum floor tiles • Exterior siding, commonly known as asbestos cement • Caulking & adhesives So before buying an older home, find out if it has been tested for asbestos or call an environmental company to help you with this. Good luck and be safe this spring!

Q

What is the difference between Errors & Omissions or Professional Liability and Commercial General Legal Liability ?

A

This question is often asked and the answer is quite basic but easily confused as the topics share a common ground but are obviously not the same. Commercial General Liability covers claims for bodily injury or property damages. Professional liability is for protection against the negligence associated with services and damages are normally financial more than physical as is the case with general liability. As with general liability insurance, professional liability insurance is crucial because it covers the indirect consequences of your conduct and general liability insurance is triggered when there are physical damages. As always we are happy to answer any questions there are on this or any business, home or auto insurance topic.

Rapids wrap season with championship events The swim team competed in Western Canadian Nationals in Saskatoon and Provincial AAAs in Victoria

Erin Cebula, Spokesperson

The Rapids sent a team of five to the Westerns Canadian Nationals in Saskatoon — three of which were veterans of the event. The roster included Brandon de Costa, Brandon Crawford, Michael Jakac-Sinclair, Serena Xue, and Tony Zeng. This is the second highest level of competition in Canada, only to this year’s World Trials. “Westerns can be intimidating, but our rookies didn’t let that slow them down,” said head coach Robert Pettifer. “They fought hard to make finals. “Our returning athletes were taking chances as well, fully aware that it would take gutsy swims to win. That meant going out hard.” That racing mentality lead to some major results. De Costa, a medalist the previous year, came out strong with a gold in the 100-metre backstroke for the 16 and under age group,

which was not only a club record, but a senior national qualification time. Two days later, he doubled with a win in the 50-metre backstroke, posting the fastest time of the entire meet. In Victoria two weeks later, the five joined up with 35 other Rapids for AAA Provincial Championships, the highest level intra-province competition of the year. “Provincial Champs is a real test of our swimmers’ abilities,” said head age group coach Dennis Silva. “It’s a long, tough meet. Our kids have put in the work, week in and week out, and we’re seeing the positive results of that training and effort. “This year’s AAAs had some of the strongest results I’ve ever seen.” The Rapids swimmers responded to the challenge on the first day as their 11-year-old boys went 1-3-4-5 in the 1,500-metre freestyle. Ethan Chan and Jeremy Fung won gold

and bronze, respectively, while Anthony Chan and Matthew Crawford occupied the fourth and fifth spots. Ethan Chan would continue on with a bronze in both the 200 and 400 freestyle. The night concluded with the 4x50 freestyle, with silver for the 11-and-under boys, and a win by the 14-and-under boys, who went on to win gold in all three relays. The following day, the Rapids had 20 finals. That lot included first-time individual medalists Adrian Hsing (silver – 200 IM) and Matthew Crawford (gold – 100 Backstroke). Hsing would total seven silvers by the end of the meet, while Crawford would proceed to win the 200-metre discipline as well. First-time medalist Alex Ball shocked everyone with his win in the 50-freestyle, setting a new meet record in the process. Other medals included a win for Kevin Ye in the 200 IM, who also won gold in both

breaststroke events. Jerry Liu came through with his first provincial gold, winning the 100 backstroke. Liu placed third in the 200, and earned himself a spot on B.C. Prospects Team, which represents the top age group athletes in the province. The following day, Serena Xue and Nicolaas Dekker earned their first medals of the meet (200-breaststroke and 100-fly, respectively). Xue would add a silver on Sunday in the 100-breaststroke. Rich Rakchtis captured his first-ever individual medal, with a bronze in the 200 breaststroke. Para-swimmer Magnus Batara earned three silver medals (200 IM, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke) and one bronze (200 freestyle). Other notables include Max Schaffler, who made his first-ever Westerns see Provincials page 22

Palmer shows talent, sportsmanship The Palmer Griffins are the seven-time Richmond Senior Boys Basketball champions and there looks to be some more outstanding talent on the horizon. The Griffins Grade 9 team wrapped up an outstanding season with a third place finish at the recent provincial championships in Vancouver. Palmer closed out the tournament with a 61-48 victory over Vancouver

College. Marko Stojanovic was named as a first team all-star, while Adrian Ong was a second team selection. The provincial tournament puts a strong emphasis on sportsmanship and this year the Most Sportsmanlike Team Award was re-named after the late Dunc Anderson, a longtime high school basketball coach who passed away last year. Palmer was presented the trophy

during an emotional ceremony that included Anderson’s family. The third-seeded Griffins opened the 16-team tournament with a 68-37 win over Prince of Wales. That was followed by a 48-39 triumph against West Vancouver. Coached by Rob Brown, Palmer finished the season with a 24-6 record that included winning the Vancouver and District championship.

Provincials: One of tightest races in B.C. history

Please be advised that the Annual General Meeting of Seafair Minor Hockey Association will be held on Monday, April 15, 2013 at 7:00p.m. in the Richmond Cultural Centre Performance Hall (Richmond Public Library),

7700 Minoru Gate, Richmond

Continued from page 21 qualification, and David Ng achieved his first Age Group National standard. Ten-year old Amanda McCallum added the 100-backstroke to her growing list of newly-minted club records. Sunday was a knockdown, drag out for the team rankings, with the top seven teams in high contention. The Rapids had 26 finals, and the results were strong enough to finish fifth overall, in what was one of the tightest team races in B.C. history. Only four points separated fourth and fifth place. “We’re very proud of our swimmers,” said Pettifer. “We had some incredibly successful swims — lots of kids really stepping up to the challenge and giving die-hard efforts. They were fighters, all the way to the end.”

The Richmond Rapids team members enjoyed successful races at both Western Nationals and provincial championships.

If you suspect that an ad to which you have responded is misleading, here are some hints to remember. Legitimate employers do not ask for money as part of the application process; do not send money; do not give any credit card information; or call a 900 number in order to respond to an employment ad. Job opportunity ads are salary based and do not require an investment. If you have responded to an ad which you believe to be misleading please call the Better Business Bureau at 604-682-2711, Monday to Friday, 9am - 3pm or email inquiries@bbbvan.org and they will investigate.
