City eyes $110 million rebuild

Former fighter pilot lands top job at YVR

$65 million

B.C.-born Craig Richmond is new CEO

$22 million

BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

In a manner only YVR can pull off, it shrouded in mystery the identity of its new president and CEO. Vancouver Airport Authority (VAA) searched the world for its new leader — following the retirement last year of long-serving Larry Berg — and perhaps the jet plane themed cookies at the reception were a clue. In the end, the answer was right under their noses, in the shape of Kamloops-born, former fighter pilot Craig Richmond. A former vice-president of operations at the airport, Richmond is also a former president and CEO of Nassau International Airport in the Bahamas. He was unveiled Tuesday morning by VAA board of directors chair Mary Jordan at a press conference at the airport. “Like YVR itself, our new president and CEO is a homegrown success story,” said Jordan. see CEO page 6

Fanning the flames of Olympic Games spirit BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

The Richmond Oval was abuzz with the Olympic spirit Monday as around 2,500 elementary school students from across the city attempted to go faster, higher, and stronger at a wide variety of sports. Helping guide, and maybe plant a seed for the future, were a number of current and former Canadian Olympians. One of them on hand was Richmond’s Arjan Bhullar who has proudly worn the maple leaf at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games. Bhullar said he can relate to what events like this can mean to a youngster. “This is where dreams can begin,” said Bhullar who later this month is starting a wrestling program at the oval. “I was a little child like them. Fourteen-years-old when Daniel Igali won his gold medal for Canada (Olympic wrestling, in 2000 Sydney, Australia). And I’m hoping to inspire some of these kids to be the next generation of wrestling champions to represent our country and be our nation’s heroes.” Being at Olympic Day was also a source of inspiration for Bhullar.

“It’s inspiring for me to see these kids and all the energy they bring, how excited they are about the sport and just about the Olympic Games,” he said. “It means a lot to me. It energizes me.” Bhullar added the event is an investment in not only the future of sport in Canada, but children in general. “A lot of people in this day and age are very materialistic, investing in other aspects and forget the family, when our kids are our real future.” One of those youngsters excited by the event was nine-year-old Holden Kanelopoulos who is in Grade 4 at Manoah Steves elementary. “I think it was really cool, actually,” he said, adding he tried his hand at table tennis, wrestling and speed skating, which was his favourite. Asked if he sees a sports career ahead of him, he said his focus right now is to make it to Major League Baseball. Fellow Steves student Alexander Vogel, who is in Grade 5, said his favourite sport at Olympic Day was fencing. “I prefer that because you get to use swords,” he said.

Boyd steps up to offer baccalaureate program BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

PHILIP RAPHAEL/RICHMOND NEWS

Grade 8 Hugh Boyd students, (left to right) Mya Enbuscado, Arya Ardehali, and Psalmae Tesalona, are looking forward to adoption of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program.

JUDY’S TIP OF THE WEEK

Every opportunity to help someone is a golden opportunity to be part of their success story. Judy Jobse, Service Manager

Hours of operation Mon-Friday 7:30-5:30-Sat 8-4

As the current school year winds down, a whole new beginning is being planned when the next one starts in September at Hugh Boyd secondary school. That’s because Boyd will be the only school in Richmond to offer the International Baccalaureate MYP (Middle Years Program). School officials said that will provide students in Grades 8 and 9, and then Grade 10 next year, a richer, more well-rounded curriculum. “It’s an internationally recognized program, and at its core is the student learner,” said teacher Aviva Vaughan, a co-coordinator

who helped establish the new program at Boyd. “It’s an academic program, but at the same time it’s also a whole student program.” That means it’s meant to develop students who are caring, respectful, enquirers and risk-takers. Also making it unique is the international component to the program. “Teachers bring in their global perspective into the classroom and try to bridge the gap between the different disciplines, so that students, when they leave one classroom and they go into another they can make connections between one discipline and another,” Vaughan said. There is also the opportunity for teachers to work together to

develop interdisciplinary material so students can examine a subject through different perspectives. “It also brings global, intercultural awareness and understanding and respect into the courses they do,” Vaughan said. Another component the to IB program involves community service which allows students to see themselves as someone who has an effect on the society around them. Psalmae Tesaloma, a Grade 8 student said some of her classmates who have already taken part in the community service portion of the program helped out at the local food bank, while others focused their attention on assisting their teachers in the classroom. see Education page 4

focused her efforts at her school to help promote the fact Boyd was incorporating the IB program. Hugh Boyd principal Barb Raynor said the program still delivers the provincially approved curriculum, but weaves in an overarching philosophy. “Why is it different from other schools is that it is school-wide,” she said. “Every student will be participating, from Grade 8 to 10, no matter what their ability level, or whatever their interests are. And all the teachers are part of it.” And that ensuing collaboration among teaching staff provides the opportunity for them to build off each other and work better as a team, she added.

Penalty in the cards City may take action for community centre delay BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

The City of Richmond may invoke a penalty clause in a developer’s contract after it was revealed the new City Centre Community Centre (CCCC) is at least seven months behind schedule. The keys for the $6.8 million downtown centre — at the heart of the new Quintet development between No. 3 Road and Minoru Boulevard at Firbridge Way — were due to be handed to the city Dec. 31 this year. However, it seems the project will now not be ready until at least the end of July next year. At Monday’s city council general purposes committee meeting, Coun. Evelina Halsey-Brandt expressed concern at the length of time the centre was taking to be completed and asked if the city was looking into any penalty clause for late

delivery. “That is something that’s on the table … we’re working with our law department on that,” said the city’s general manager of engineering and public works, Robert Gonzalez. Halsey-Brandt said it would be “good to get something back for the community from this delay.” City spokesman Ted Townsend said the delay was due to unforeseen circumstances and that the city has a variety of other options to consider in terms of any penalty and are in “discussions on how to best address the delay.” Townsend said he couldn’t go into detail about those discussions until they’re over. The 33,000 sq. ft. centre will occupy the first two floors of a four-storey building with Trinity Western University (TWU) occupying the third and fourth floors.

Duncan: Seniors need to move Continued from page 1 “When we rebuilt the library and cultural centre, the damage to surrounding buildings was significant,” said Duncan. “And I don’t think the seniors would appreciate being in the middle of a construction site.” If the old aquatic centre is demolished, the city hopes to utilize private pools across the city to supplement what will be a crowded space at the smaller Steveston pool. While Steves called for clarification on the near $5 million it will take to bring the former RCMP building up to code as a temporary seniors facility. City staff said that, when the seniors move back to their new facility, the former RCMP building would be used to take pressure off already

packed city department offices. Steves also asked for a complete redesign of the Minoru precinct to alleviate traffic congestion and for staff to consider the design of the new ANAF seniors facility in Steveston, where businesses and a social club are integrated with seniors housing in the one building. If approved, a new, integrated seniors and aquatic centre ($60M to $65M) could be built by 2017, while a new firehall ($20M to $22M) could be finished by 2018. Both would take around three years to construct. Around $3.5 million is needed to kick off the design phase of the project and funding for the entire program will either come from the city’s reserves,

external borrowing or a combination of both; the latter being recommended by city staff due to historically low interest rates.

excited about it because usually they only showcase their skills and what they’ve learned within the RYSA community. “This event gives them a chance to reach out to the greater general community and be in the spotlight.” The afternoon, from 3 to 6:30 p.m., kicks off with an opening ceremony including words from Mayor Malcolm Brodie, elder James White and district superintendant Monica Pamer. The event features workshops and traditional games, a performance by the Urban Heiltsuk Dancers and B.C. writer Larry Nicholson as a co-MC. For Shaw, National Aboriginal Day provides an important opportunity for the culture. “It’s one step towards eradicating racism,” she said.

The aromas of freshly fried bannock, bison burgers and salmon burgers will permeate the courtyard of Richmond City Hall, while the OSKAYAK (meaning family in Cree) drummers dole out some beats. The Aboriginal graduating classes of Grades 7 and 12 will also be recognized in a ceremony. For the first time this year, Richmond Youth Service Agency’s (RYSA) Pathways Aboriginal Centre has merged with the city, the school district, Vancouver Coastal Health, Richmond Museum and Richmond Public Library to celebrate National Aboriginal Day this Friday, June 21. “The OSKAYAK committee (youth council) at RYSA had a big hand in planning the event,” said Jelica Shaw, the Aboriginal youth centre coordinator. “They’re really

“The more people know about something, the less hostile they are towards it or the less scared they are by it. They understand more.” The Richmond School District approached RYSA to co-partner the event in order to further increase this cultural understanding. In the 20112012 school year, the district signed the Aboriginal Enhancement PHOTO SUBMITTED Agreement, which Bannok sales at National was enacted in the Aboriginal Day celebrations 2012. 2012-2013 calendar. The agreement strives to better integrate the Aboriginal learner and include First Nations studies in the general curriculum, according to Shaw. Before the agreement was tabled, Aboriginal students were being pulled out of class to learn about their culture, while the regular curriculum’s approach was not very indepth. “I think it’s really great that this was signed,” said Shaw. “It’s important to integrate First Nations education into every classroom. Students don’t feel bothered or different for being pulled out and it allows everyone to learn the culture and ask questions.” Shaw hopes the same will happen as various members of the community gather to celebrate the Aboriginal culture this Friday.

Pass the pork

ince the election, Premier Christy Clark has been talking a lot about restraint. She’s opined on the need to contain costs and preached the gospel of fiscal discipline. Don’t ask the government for money, is the message being sent. Because the answers will be “No, no and no.” Turns out, however, that while all animals are equal, some are more equal than others — particularly Clark’s loyal party insiders. No sooner had the premier finished telling everyone they’d need to tighten their belts and suck it up, than it was revealed she’d wasted little time cushioning the blows for some favoured bureaucrats. Some of her political staff will see their salary caps jump to $230,000. Raises range from 18 per cent to 60 per cent for the elite, who helped Clark pull off her stunning election victory. Ministerial assistants will also see their maximum salaries go up to $105,000 — a raise of 11 per cent. Politically, it’s undoubtedly smart to make such a cynical move as early as possible. The increases will soon be eclipsed by the budget, which itself will soon fall prey to the summer break and general political amnesia. But the pay hikes are no less offensive. At a time when a “core review” threatens civil service cuts and seniors in extended care homes are being charged for wheelchairs, it behooves those at the top to set an example. Instead, Clark has made it clear just who will be experiencing restraint and who will be practising business as usual.

CHOICE WORDS

‘New kid’ has lots to learn

The Editor, Re: “Meet the new kid in politics,” May 23, News. In a recent article, newly elected MLA Teresa Wat shared her insight regarding Richmond Centre’s dismal 38.9 percent voter turnout. The story continues, “Wat said she believes a large percentage of new immigrants in the riding who are ineligible to vote is the reason for the low turnout. Registration to vote in B.C. requires Canadian citizenship, being at least 18-years-old, and a resident in B.C. for the past six months. “Wat said some Chinese immigrants who can qualify also rule themselves out of voting because they are reluctant to relinquish their Chinese citizenship for a Canadian one.” We must forgive our representative for being completely new to politics. Perhaps she did not understand that voter turnout is calculated by counting only those eligible to vote. We can only hope she learns this very basic stuff quickly. I believe that if we looked further into Richmond Centre’s voter apathy, we might instead find some answers we don’t want to hear. Perhaps voters do not see much legitimacy in the process when political parties just parachute people with little record of community involvement. Or, maybe, people here just do not care. Notwithstanding, Ms. Wat has four years to sincerely prove her commitment to Richmond Centre, and develop a good cognitive political understanding. I wish her the best! Gary Cross Richmond

Coal shipping debate heating up While those two oil pipeline proposals from Enbridge and Kinder Morgan have been hogging the limelight recently, another part of the energy debate is about to elbow its way onto the public stage. That would be the issue of increased coal shipments through Metro Vancouver for export to Asia. It’s a subject that is just heating up, as environmentalists turn their sights on a vital part of B.C.’s natural resource-based economy. B.C.’s coal industry generates more than $3 billion in economic activity each year, and provides high-paying jobs for many people. It’s in a position to grow, as Asian countries’ insatiable appetite for coal shows no signs of ebbing. This province has three coal exporting facilities, one in Prince Rupert and two in Metro Vancouver (Neptune in North Vancouver and Westshore Terminal in Roberts Bank). Another company – Fraser Surrey Docks – is proposing to turn its terminal into a coal loading facility. Helping to drive this push for more coal travelling through Metro Vancouver is the huge demand in Asia for “thermal” coal from the United States, mostly from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming. While most of B.C.’s coal is of the metallurgical variety and is used primarily to manufacture steel, thermal coal is primarily burned to create

energy. There is not a single coal exporting facility on the U.S. west coast. A couple may be built over the next decade, but in the meantime, the only way to get that thermal coal to the Asian marketplace is through one of Metro Vancouver’s terminals. Environmental activists have seized on two arguments in opposing more coal traffic. First, they argue, more coal means more coal dust falling on the neighbourhoods through which coal trains run. The second argument is that exporting more thermal coal to Asia will simply worsen the global warming trend as the more coal that is burned, the more greenhouse gas emissions occur. The industry insists the coal dust concerns have been taken care of because coal trains are sprayed with dust-eliminating liquids at various stages of their journey, and at the terminals themselves. But the climate change argument may be a more difficult one for the industry to refute. The movement to end global warming is growing and certainly has appears to have a large constituency in British

Columbia. The coal industry’s main allies are countries like India and China, who import most of the coal from B.C. and the U.S. Those countries’ counterargument about their need to burn coal for energy is also a compelling one, as more energy means more people in those vastly populated countries can be lifted out of life-threatening poverty. My Global BC colleague Jas Johal’s recent four-part series on coal exports included an interview with Sam Pitroda, an advisor to the Prime Minister of India. He noted the hypocrisy of Western countries, which have been burning coal for more than a century, purporting to limit the ability of India and China to do the same. Then there’s the jobs argument. Premier Christy Clark’s re-election win was based on the relentless message of the need to create jobs, and it obviously proved to be a popular one with the public. As the debate heats up, the Clark government will come under pressure to state its position on the movement of coal. And it is the kind of issue that could further expose the growing split in the NDP between environmentalists and blue collar job proponents. It’s a classic made-inB.C. kind of fight, and it’s just getting started.

Take history to the people

The Editor, Not long ago Railway Avenue was bordered on the West Side by a beautiful green strip with a lot of trees and blackberry bushes. It was also the home of many small animals and lots of birds and their nests. At this time of year the blackberry bushes would be in full bloom loaded with white blossoms and later in the Fall would be loaded with fruit which many local residents picked and enjoyed. The trees followed the seasons, being harbingers of spring, when the leaves began to appear, and reminders that another year was almost complete in the fall. The great minds in City Hall thought they

could improve on nature. The blackberries were ripped up, many trees were cut down leaving great gaps in the greenery, the small animals were rooted out of their homes and the birds flew elsewhere. Now they’re laying down, what no doubt will become a cyclists drag strip. Look out you mothers and care givers pushing strollers or walking with kids, people in wheelchairs and those just enjoying an evening stroll, you’ll need eyes in the back of your head. Accidents will happen just as surely as they do on the Seawall. And now we can all look forward to another smiling council photo-op. Patrick Gannon Richmond,

schools every week of the school year, to every community event, to summer community centre programs, to local malls and businesses. In short, let’s take the history to the people. We should also be looking at how to “get it out there” virtually, making our history come alive for anyone who has a computer or mobile screen, wherever the viewer might be. In speaking recently to someone involved in the Olympics museum planning, I heard that the “Olympic experience” at the Oval is expected to be a Richmond tourist draw. I would be interested to find a similar project that has been a success in terms of numbers of visits as well as what success looks like long-term for such a project. The issue always is that the people planning museums are museum buffs and history lovers, in this case, local history and Olympics history; I am sure they and their friends will all attend, but what about the remaining 99 per cent of Richmond taxpayers and visitors? If we can make it easy for more people to view exhibits and learn about their community, the funds being committed will be better utilized and our community’s appreciation for heritage will increase dramatically. Richmond has been a leader in many aspects of parks and recreation; we have a chance now to lead in the area of culture and heritage. Let’s do it! Julie Halfnights Richmond

So

The Editor, I have been following the conversations in local media about plans for the two new museums, one a replacement for the current Richmond Museum and the other for an Olympic Museum at the Oval, with interest. I support heritage preservation and education and am an avid visitor of museums wherever I go. (In fact, my children lamented they were the only kids who had ever visited every museum on Maui.) I have to wonder, though, are we going to house our museums in big buildings that will sit virtually unused or are we going to spend those dollars strategically and with a view to the future? Are we going to look seriously at who we are targeting and how to best reach them? Apart from a few truly world class museums and heritage sites I’ve been to in Europe, most I have attended have been lonely places. On the Sunday of the recent Doors Open, I was thrilled to see many in the newly opened tram building but, just a short walk away, only a scattering of people in the Britannia Bunkhouse and Shipyard. If they are not there on a sunny Sunday when admission is free and advertising made it easy to find, when will they come? We need to think more about how to take the history to the public. Let’s ensure we have the space needed to curate and protect our artefacts and to create and program exhibits, but let’s make those exhibits mobile. Let’s put them in specially built vans or trucks and take them out to local

Beautifully flat dyke prefect for half marathon BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

The flat terrain and natural beauty of Richmond are two reasons why MEC is hosting its first half marathon in the city. Hundreds of keen and casual runners are expected to turn out at Garry Point Park next Sunday, June 23 for the race, the fourth in the MEC (Mountain Equipment Co-op) Vancouver series, which will also include a 5K and 10K event. “The dyke trail is one of the most beautiful running trails in the Lower Mainland and we want to showcase some of the best run locations in the Lower Mainland,” said Mallory Holmes, MEC’s outreach coordinator. “The dyke offers racers a wonder-

ful scenic view, a risk-free run with such a flat course, and easy to navigate trails for racers to get their best time. “Richmond is also a community hub for athletics and culture in the Lower Mainland.” After starting at Garry Point in Steveston, the race will wind its way onto the west dyke trail before passing the Olympic oval and UBC Boathouse. MEC takes pride in keeping race running costs low and accessible and, as such, the entry fee for next week is just $15. The half marathon starts at 8:30 a.m.; 10K at 9 a.m. and the 5K at 9:15 a.m. You can register online at events.

mec.ca, in-store at MEC Vancouver at 130 West Broadway or on race day between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. The last day to register online or in store is June 21. You can also pick up your race bib at the MEC Vancouver Store on June 21 and 22 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. or on race day between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. at Garry Point Park. Medal awards will be given to top male and female finishers in each race category and all runners will be invited to a Race Participant Club Night at MEC’s Vancouver store. MEC, which has more than 3.5 million members, is organizing more than 80 races across Canada in 2013, featuring everything from serious runners to beginners.

Food farming interest enjoying rebirth BY SABINE EICHE Special to the News

There’s a renaissance happening in Richmond. Not the renaissance of Leonardo and Michelangelo and the rebirth of interest in ancient art. No, what’s happening here, right now, is another kind of renaissance – the rebirth of interest in food farming. This spring, the Richmond Food Security Society compiled a report about our foodland asset, providing some thought-provoking data. It turns out that less than five per cent of the total land in B.C. is suitable for food production. The City of Richmond, however, is in a privileged position, with 39 per cent of its land base within the Agricultural Land Reserve. Stated in acres, the figure is around 12,338, which rises to 13,746 if agricultural land outside the reserve is included. More than half of that land — around 7,591 acres — is actively worked by 211 farms. But a while back the situation was looking dire. More and more family farms were closing, often because the owners were getting too old and younger family mem-

In 2012, Arzeena Hamir, the former co-ordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society, wrote that we’d been “losing one or two family farms every year since 2009.” Many Richmondites heard an especially loud alarm bell July 19, 2010, when Tai On farm on No. 5 Road suddenly shut down, after 40 years in business. It seems, however, that a shift in the other direction is underway. Not only is the Richmond Sharing Farm at Terra Nova thriving, but the Institute for Sustainable Horticulture at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, in cooperation with the Sharing Farm Society, Richmond Food Security Society, City of Richmond

and VanCity has established the Richmond Farm School program. And recently, six young people have decided to turn their hands to farming – five with half an acre each of incubator farmland, at the south end of Gilbert Road, and one, Allan Surette, with a two-acre farm, Urban Edibles, on Steveston Highway, just east of the Gilbert Road intersection. Surette uses organic methods on his farm. During late spring, he sells mainly flower and vegetable seedlings, but as the summer progresses there’ll be more and more fresh bounty from his fields. You can check how the vegetables are growing because the fields and raised garden beds are all visible

behind and around the farmgate stand. Surette also sells freshlycollected eggs, laid by hens that are pasture raised, with non-gmo feed, in the apple orchard of Cherry Lane farm, a few kilometres to the north.

From chemistry lab to plate

F

ood — it must have been among the first things for which humans found a word. “Foda,” an ancient inhabitant of the British Isles would have muttered, peering into the pot bubbling on his hearth. Related Anglo-Saxon IN OTHER WORDS words are “fedan” and “fodor,” feed and fodder, akin to the German “Futter.” South of the Alps, an ancient Roman, reclining on his triclinium (diningcouch) as he supped, would have spoken of “cibus.” The few English words based on the Latin “cibus” – cibaries, cibarious, cibation – are now rarely used. Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), the French philosopher who’s a byword for the superlative in gastronomy, famously said, “Tell me what you eat: I will tell you what you are.” Admittedly he had social distinctions in mind, but I’m convinced that were he around today, he’d overlook whether we ranked as lower, middle or upper class, and declare us all walking chemistry labs. True, we’re composed of chemicals and the food we eat is composed of chemicals, because all matter is composed of chemicals. But what’s happened in recent history is that chemists have been experimenting in their labs to replicate the substances created by Mother Nature, in order to manipulate foodstuffs – mostly for profit. The result of that manipulation is processed food. While I bar processed food from my kitchen, it holds the same kind of horrible fascination for me as would a twoheaded calf. Hence I couldn’t resist the newly-published book by Melanie Warner, Pandora’s Lunchbox: How Processed Food Took Over the American Meal. Early on, Warner deconstructs a Subway Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwich, which is largely “constructed from powders.” Of the sandwich’s 105 ingredients, 55 are powders – the chicken has 13, the teriyaki glaze 12, the fatfree sweet onion sauce eight, and the Italian white bread 22. She names them all. In the 1950s, the number of food additives allowed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States was around 700. Today it’s some 5,000 – over half are for flavour. And when a company adds something that’s not allowed, all it has to do is stop calling the product food and simply call it a product – as Kraft did a while back with one of its packaged cheeses. It was only about 100 years ago that the Polish biochemist Casimir Funk identified the substance in food that cured diseases. He called it vitamin, from the Latin “vita,” (life) and

Sabine Eiche

amine. Though his experiments were focused on brown rice, he’d taken the first step towards the eventual discovery of the 13 vitamins and 14 minerals that are our essential nutrients. At first vitamins were obtained from natural foods. In the 1930s, chemists succeeded in making synthetic vitamins. The process became increasingly sophisticated, deriving vitamins from the unlikeliest sources. For example, the milk (organic included) we buy in stores contains Vitamin D made from grease found in Australian sheep wool, which is shipped for processing to China, where “roughly half of all global vitamin production” is carried out. This morning in the garden I saw a slug, reclining like a Roman on his triclinium as it was chomping on an organic seedling. A discerning eater, the slug. I bet it wouldn’t touch processed food. Sabine Eiche is a writer and art historian (http://members. shaw.ca/seiche/)

Fairhaven’s past comes to life

New technology offers a a look back at the town’s historic district Historic Fairhaven in Washington State is using today’s technology to tell visitors about the town’s rich past. Plaques have been installed on all 12 of Fairhaven’s historic buildings that date back as far as 1890, and some of the sites where a building no longer stands are still commemorated with a plaque placed on the sidewalk. Visitors to Fairhaven can now learn more about the town, located on the south side of Bellingham, bordering Bellingham Bay on the west and Western Washington University on the northeast, by using their smart phone or iPad. Simply scan a QR code decal that has been added to some of the plaques, and you get access to a wide range of information. Visitors can learn more from websites and and audio files. And because the historic town has strong links to the Chinese community — many Chinese labourers were hired to work in the Pacific American Fisheries, which was at one time the largest salmon cannery in the world — the information is being made available in Chinese. One such site is the Chinese Bunkhouse on Harris Avenue that during the boom days of the 1890s was home to about 600 Chinese workers as the salmon industry rapidly expanded.

Another site of intrigue is the plaque describing the shady underworld of Fairhaven’s Chinese Mafia. In Fairhaven’s Chinatown there were ongoing tussles for control waged with Tongs (Asian Gangs) from Portland, Seattle and SanFrancisco. In the town’s historic district, visitors can explore buildings such as the Morgan House Hotel at Harris Avenue and 10th Street. Built in 1890, it originally had a saloon covering the entire bottom floor, while the floor above housed the hotel. Its colourful days as a watering hole came to an end in 1910 when a vote by the town to “go dry” shut down the Morgan House Saloon and the 13 Sampling Rooms of Fairhaven. The site also has a bit of a morbid past as it was used as a viewing area for those transients who had died and needed to be identified and claimed. And you can even delve deeper into the town’s past by visiting the Terminal Building at 11th Street and Harris Avenue. Built in 1888, it is the oldest surviving commercial building in Fairhaven. It was originally home to D. Butler’s Sideboard Saloon. It also housed a billiards parlour and real estate offices. Kreftings Drugs was another business associated with the building which apparently has a few stories about how it got its name.

One suggests it had to do with the town being considered as the terminus of the Great Northern Railroad. That honour went to a place called Seattle. Another theory links the name with the fact the site connected with the street crossing which was the end of a street car route. It’s all part of the success story that Fairhaven has become today, with its vibrant town centre,Victorian era buildings, and 200 or so, independent businesses that offer visitors a warm welcome and invitation to dine, shop, play and stay a while.

Imagination is key to progress BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

The seventh in an eight-part series. Almost 26 years ago, Gene Roddenberry premiered the Holodeck in the pilot episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Fast forward a couple of decades and computer scientists at the University of Illinois have recreated the Holodeck, which can possibly be used for advances in space and medicine. “Einstein spoke of imagination as power,” said artist Tara Nakano. “It’s what keeps motivating people. Without creativity, we can’t solve the world’s problems and move into future directions. We can imagine technology, like the Holodeck in Star Trek, that was never a possibility and bring it to life.” Nakano draws inspiration from science fiction and video games in order to create her own immersive worlds, while exploring different cultures. She donated one of her paintings from her Modern Myth series to Gateway Theatre’s For the Love of Art silent auction fundraiser. The series looks at old masters. In the case of the donated work, Nakano studies Leonardo da Vinci and modernizes it. The head of a woman looks down against a sheet of shimmering gold. Her long locks blend in with the more abstract lines of the background. “I like combining the historical and the modern,” said Nakano, who studied cultural anthropology. “I love to travel and research a particular culture, and

steep my mind in it so I slowly understand it.” She also uses her video gamer past to create 3-D images that transport the viewer into another place, as they become hybrids of the past, present and future, as well as, a number of cultural influences. “There was a lot being done with the video game industry in the late ’90s,” she said. “I watched as Final Fantasy moved from the simple, storybook format to really coming alive. I thought it was fabulous, that there was a real space for some fascinating art there.” The end product looks like a mix

of photography and scenes from a video game. One image looks down a dark, cobblestoned alleyway that could be from the Middle Ages. However, above an archway, there’s a surveillance camera watching and modernizing the scene. “Art allows humans to have new experiences in a safe place,” Nakano said. “You can travel into new worlds and it enhances the imagination of every person.” But to get to where she is now was a long struggle for Nakano, who has a type of dyslexia. Determined to not let it affect her academics, she worked hard and developed techniques to understand the world around her. It wasn’t until she was at Alberta College for Art and Design that she realized it was affecting her artwork as well, where she couldn’t properly register perspectives and angles. “I refused to limit my ability,” she said. “I’d look at where the top artists of my generation are. I’d look for where the bars were set and find ways, or ladders, to get there.” Slowly she found the skills she studied relentlessly began to permeate her subconscious and emerge through her artwork.

His persistence paid off with a few plays on BBC Radio One. But the song went stratospheric when BBC TV used it as the background music to the TV news report of the first landing on the moon by Apollo 11 space crew, July 20, 1969. The record took off like a rocket — sorry. I suppose the idea that an astronaut might just float away off into space fired up the public’s imagination and the record finally landed at the top of the UK charts. By 1971, Bowie’s star was well set in the firmament, and he began preparing tracks for a new album in the famous Trident Studios in London just down the street from the Marquee Club. Bowie and his producer, Tony Visconti, regularly visited Mace’s office and invited him down to the recording studio. see Moog page 20

Educating for a new tomorrow information online, “But we used our own words and ideas to write and show what we mean.” We were amazed at the depth and quality of students’ work and how focused they were. As one of their teachers said, “I can set them up anywhere in the school, and they stay completely caught up in the project. Distractions aren’t an issue.” Is the attraction the tablet? Technology can seem like it’s stealing the show, but it’s just a supporting actor. Yes, kids like using tablets, but being engaged in the learning is centre stage. Tools like laptops and tablets simply help them find information and show what they’ve learned in ways that take them far beyond “basic skills”. Children are eager to go there, and our job in education is to get them started, coach them along the way and get ready to be amazed at where they end up. The B.C. Education Plan is described more fully on the B.C. Ministry of Education website:

While basic skills like reading, writing and math are as necessary as they ever were, the world these skills are needed for is flooded with information that changes almost as quickly as it gets produced. Along with being able to read, our children need to rely on their own judgment and critical thinking skills to make sense of that world now and in the future. Being educated isn’t simply a matter of memorizing things. It means knowing how to analyze, criticize, and use information in a fast-paced world that also demands working together and appreciating different points of view. At this point you may be asking, “What does this look like?” Though there are many examples, here’s one an elementary school shared with me recently. The teachers were very excited about the small group project work that their Grade 6 students were doing. After researching their topic, the children were writing their own book on an electronic tablet, complete with text, graphs, pictures and student-made video. They told me they got the

Continued from page 19 One evening after work, David and the group were in the control room trying to overdub a new keyboard part that Visconti had written to be played on a revolutionary new instrument called the Moog Synthesizer. “The Moog part for Memory of a Free Festival was a little tricky. It needed pianistic fingers and none of the group made a very good job of it, I suggested to David that if they wanted to be home before breakfast, it might be a good idea to let me have a stab at it. David smiled and nodded and I sat down in front of a moog for the first time. My fingers were in pretty good shape and after a couple of trial runs we had the part in the can. Then the parts from several other tracks appeared and I put those tracks down too.” When the self titled album David Bowie and The Man Who Sold The World was released the credits on the album covers stated: David Bowie, Guitar, Vocals; Tony Visconti, Electric Bass, Piano, Guitar; Mick Ronson. Guitar; Mick Woodmansey, Drums and Ralph Mace, Moog Synthesizer. “And that’s how I became a Spider From Mars,” says Mace. David Bowie’s 37th album is called The Next Day and is available now.

Finding a ‘soft’ adventure in Colorado There’s plenty of family-friendly fun to experience in Denver’s ‘back yard’ this summer

BY LAUREN KRAMER Special to the News

We’d come to Colorado looking for some soft adventure — the kind that everyone in the family could enjoy with minimal risk of injury. We found it just two hours from Denver in Cañon City and Colorado Springs, two towns that contain a playground of canyons, mountains and rivers nestled in the embrace of the magnificent Rockies. With its craggy mountains and gently undulating hills, the state offers lots of opportunity for visitors to explore its nooks and crevices on land, on water and by bike. Here’s our top picks for a getaway in Denver’s “back yard.” Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, Canon City: Boasting one of the world’s highest suspension bridges, Royal Gorge is a great introduction to Colorado’s impressive geological landscape. The steep, granite rock faces that line both sides of the Arkansas River stretch 956 feet from top to bottom, offering inspiring views of Pike’s Peak Mountain and the Sangre De Cristo range. The park has a variety of options for experiencing those views, including my son’s favorite choice, the Royal Rush Skycoaster, a roller-coaster type swing best suited for those looking for an adrenaline rush. Others prefer the relative calm of the incline railway, wherein visitors descend to the river along a railway, encased in a cage-like structure that passes within touching distance of the dramatic colors and contours of the gorge’s granite. Raft the Arkansas River, Canon City: Taking kids river rafting can be challenging, but the Arkansas River’s calmer whitewater makes it a safer option than many other rivers. We geared up at Echo Canyon River Expeditions and headed out to Bighorn

Sheep Canyon for some Class II and a handful of Class III rapids. The ride was a pleasant drift downstream with just a few splashy channels and just a handful of the adrenaline pumping rapids. The relaxing ride downstream gave us a chance to appreciate the beauty of the gorge with its amber and brown granite, and to listen to stories about the bootlegger who used to make moonshine not far from the water’s edge and whose still remains rusting where he left it. Bike from Pike’s Peak, Colorado Springs: The bald-faced peak of Pike’s Peak Mountain raises its head from as far as Cañon City, and though you can drive or take the train up and down, you get a better appreciation of its contours, its beauty and its five distinct ecological zones by biking down its curving perimeter. At the mountain’s base the weather was hot, but by the time we’d driven to the top, where the air is much thinner, we were ready for sweaters and gloves. Donning helmets we angled our bikes downhill and followed Harvey Heasten, a spritely 72year-old bike guide with Challenge Unlimited for the 20-mile ride. In many places the road is remarkably steep and we clutched the brakes to control the speed of our descent around switchbacks and hairpin turns. There were frequent stops along the way to admire the Cheyenne Canyon, Colorado’s eastern plains and Wild Dog Mountain, much of it still black and burned from the summer wildfires. Moving between alpine, montana, foothills and prairie Eco zones, there was lots of variation in flora and fauna along the way, including statuesque bighorn sheep that gazed at us from the sheer mountain slopes. Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs: If

the name of this unusual, 1,300-acre garden isn’t enough to pique your interest, the unusual upended towers of rock that characterize this garden certainly will. Once a cultural crossroads for different Indian tribes, the towers in God’s Garden were once giant sand dunes formed by water emerging through the ancestral Rocky Mountains, 280 million years ago. Pocked with holes formed by erosion, these blood-red rock formations and the semi-desert that surrounds them are home to falcons, mountain lion, bears, rattlesnakes and coyotes among other species. Take a hike along one of the paths, check out the informational movie in the Visitors’ Center and look out for autographed rocks, some containing the signatures of gold miners that date back to the turn of the century. If You Go: • Tickets to the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park cost $60 per person for entrance plus access to the rides (open March through October). Info: www.royalgorgebridge.com (888) 333-5597 • The bike ride down Pikes Peak takes two to three hours and costs $105, including a light breakfast and lunch.

Sunset is an exquisite time of day to take out your camera at the Garden of the Gods, when the rocks are illuminated by the setting sun.

Devils to lock horns with cream of Canada Off-season fun turns into national title tilt after women’s team win the B.C. championship in Coquitlam The Richmond Devils proved they can thrive on and off the ice. The women’s hockey team laced up runners instead of skates to participate in Hockey Night in Canada’s Play On — a four-on-four street tournament. The 10th annual event takes place across the country over an eight week period. The Metro Vancouver stop was held at Coquitlam Centre and featured over 350 teams in competitive and recreation divisions. The Devils opened the tournament with a 7-4 loss to the Goaldiggers, then slipped past the BC Stars 8-7 in a shootout. The girls were then on the other end of a shootout result against the Wellwoods before saving their best hockey for last. Richmond defeated the Goaldiggers 3-1 in the semi-finals, before topping the B.C. Stars 5-2 in the championship game. The result means the Devils have qualified to represent B.C. at the Play On National Championships in Yarmouth, NS in September. “We worked really well together. Played with intensity but still had fun,” said Devils player Renée Romain. “We worked hard and were able to really showcase

our skills and it paid off by winning the tournament which was a bonus. I really enjoyed it and would definitely play again next year. It was a very organized tournament.” The initial intention of entering the tournament was to have some off-season fun and provide added exposure to the club and the South Coast Female Amateur Hockey League. “We went into the event just hoping for some great competition and an enjoyable weekend,” added teammate Natalie Korenic. “I don’t think we really went into it expecting to win. There was a lot of talent and we really had some tough fought games. Overall it was an amazing event.” Last year’s Nationals were played in Niagara Falls where a section of downtown was closed the entire weekend for the tournament. The event featured 10 rinks, and over 15,000 spectators. Television coverage was provided by CBC as part of Sports Day in Canada. The men’s champions (Trois Rivieres, Quebec) were awarded a $25,000 cash prize, and the women’s champions (Toronto, Ontario) were awarded $5,000.

Richmond came through with a silver medal finish at last week’s Basketball B.C. U14 Boys Zone Team Championships at the Langley Events Centre. Wins over Fraser Valley North Blue, Haida Gawli, Van West Red and Van East in

round-robin play sent the boys onto the semifinals against Burnaby/New West — a team they had lost twice earlier in exhibition play. Richmond trailed entering the final quarter but continued to play with composure and chipped away at the deficit.

Down by three with 36 seconds remaining, the boys came up with a big defensive stop and Fardaws Aimaq (Steveston-London) was fouled on the ensuing rebound. see Coaching page 26

aving a baby is a joyous and scary time for most new parents. For some, one of the most heartbreaking moments is learning that their baby has a diagnosed disability. Others struggle navigating the healthcare system while figuring out the responsibilities of parenting a tiny premature baby who spends the first weeks or months in hospital. Still others discover that their child is not meeting developmental milestones, or receive a diagnosis of a developmental delay in the first few, most formative, years.

RSCL’s Infant Development Program (IDP) offers early intervention services for all infants born with a developmental delay and for those with special needs.

Did you know

?

The program serves children from birth to three years who live in Richmond and are at risk for, or who already have, a delay in development. This family-centred program empowers parents to choose the type of support that they need to help their child to reach full potential. From birth to three years, a child develops at a rapid pace with the relationship between child and caregiver(s) providing the foundation upon which all other areas of development rest. Physical, social, emotional, behavioral, communication and intellectual development depend on experiences provided by the infant’s family. IDP Consultants visit families in their homes to encourage the child’s progress, introducing new activities and

supporting parents. This free service includes giving suggestions on how to connect with their child through play and providing information on community resources. IDP Consultants also provide referrals to other specialists and then work as a team with them to support the family. Parent participation playgroups and workshops provide parents and primary caregivers with the tools to be their child’s best teacher during these important first years. Developmentally appropriate toys and books are available through the RSCL Lending Library, allowing parents to “test-drive” costly items prior to purchase or simply to borrow for time that the child will benefit from the toy.

RSCL Infant Development Program receives primary funding through the Ministry of Children and Families. Parent participation groups and the RSCL Lending Library would not be possible without the additional funding received from: ! United Way of the Lower Mainland ! CKNW Orphan’s Fund ! Family Respite ! Green Shield Canada Many thanks to all our funders!

Bob passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 11, 2013 in Richmond Hospital Palliative Care Unit in his 80th year. Survived by his loving family: wife Rita of 57 years; son William & fiance´e Janet; son Douglas & wife Jackie; daughter Sharon & husband Lee; and four grandchildren: Allison, Kevin, Andrew & Bradley. Bob was born in Vancouver and resided in Richmond for the past 40 years. He retired in 1992 after four decades with B.C. Tel. During his retirement he was an active volunteer (Mr. Fixit) and member of South Arm United Church. He leaves behind many friends that will remember him for his philosophical discussions about life. Bob enjoyed his time socializing with his companions, playing golf, and living life to its fullest. One of his greatest pleasures was sharing a meal and a beverage with family and friends. A special thank you to Doctor Alexiadis and the wonderful caring staff at Richmond Hospital Palliative Care Unit. A memorial service and tea will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at South Arm United Church, 11051 No. 3 Road, Richmond B.C. at 1:30 pm.
