Police warn about jaywalking, woman killed by truck BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Richmond Mounties are probing a fatal pedestrian accident Monday on Westminster Highway. A 58-year-old woman was killed after being hit by a truck on Westminster Highway, near Garden City Road, on around 10:30 a.m. The accident happened when the woman tried to cross the road and was hit by a

Telus truck. Police say the driver remained at the scene and was co-operative. Neither speed nor alcohol were factors, according to the RCMP. Richmond Mounties are reminding people to be aware of their surroundings when negotiating intersections or roads and always use designated crossing areas. Witnesses are asked to contact the Richmond RCMP’s road safety unit at 604 278 1212.

The transportation portion of the new Better at Home program offering assistance to seniors is expected to provide a two-way street of benefits. First, Jacqueline Guyda said she will not take a chance with her health any more by putting off making a trip to her doctor because she doesn’t drive or have access to convenient and affordable transportation. And volunteer driver Martin Chester will get the satisfaction of knowing he helped someone out. Transportation is just one of the services the Better at Home program will provide when it gets rolling in September. Locally, Volunteer Richmond will run the United Way and provincially funded program, which will also offer friendly visiting, and light housekeeping to be launched in the months following. Both the transportation and housekeeping programs will charge a modest fee with subsidies available for low-income clients like Guyda who said when her husband died five years ago, it left her feeling stranded. “He used to take me everywhere. And when he passed away, I didn’t know where to turn, or what to do,” she said. “I don’t have family, no children. So, I don’t have anyone to drive me around. “I come from London, England, and I never drove there because the transportation was very different — much better than here. So, I never learned to drive. That was a big mistake.” It’s a situation many local seniors can find themselves in, said Elizabeth Specht, executive director of Volunteer Richmond. “These services will give Richmond seniors the option of living independently

Better at Home program to get rolling in September

Jacqueline Guyda will benefit from Volunteer Richmond’s new Better at Home program, which includes providing rides for seniors to various appointments such as doctor’s visits. while still staying connected to the community,” Specht said. It will be a lifeline for Guyda, who can’t always afford subsidized taxis, and doesn’t trust the public transit system following an incident. Guyda said she was assaulted while waiting for a bus when an attacker tried to make off with her purse. “I haven’t been on a bus since,” she said. “That’s got to be about five years ago. It’s not

the transport, it’s when you get older you’re more observant of people and it can be scary when you start wondering if the person across from you is looking at your purse.” Trips to doctor’s appointments will make up the bulk of her use of the new program. “I don’t like going to the doctor too much anyway, but sometimes you really have to go,” Guyda said. One of those helping her get there will see Specht page 4

Onni hosts more open houses ahead of Steveston rezoning BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

A developer is this week hosting two open houses as it prepares to once again convince the city to rezone an area of Steveston. The Onni Group has applied to the city to rezone its waterfront Imperial Landing properties, which are almost complete.

JUDY’S MOTIVATIONAL TIP

If you’re still looking for that one person who can change your life, take a look in the mirror Judy Jobse, Service Manager Hours of operation Mon-Friday 7:30-5:30-Sat 8-4

At present, the area is zoned commercially for only maritimerelated businesses. Onni wants to change that to create “a more complete community that reflects the values of our neighbours and welcomes residents and visitors to Imperial Landing and the Steveston area, according to a website dedicated to the rezoning. In the past, the developer has

indicated it would prefer to have the likes of a gym, grocery store and pharmacy on the ground floors of its six low-rise buildings along Bayview Street. City council has still to decide on the rezoning, but has knocked back the request several times in the past ten years. The open houses will be held at Building 5, Imperial Landing, 4280 Bayview St. on Thursday,

July 11 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. and then Saturday, July 13 from noon to 2:30 p.m. Onni has faced stiff re-zoning opposition in the past from local residents, some of who struck up a petition against it last year. One of the aspects of the potential rezoning is whether or not the local community needs or wants the services being suggested by Onni.

Trustees: Shape young minds Man stabbed, not cooperating with police But Chiu’s regular appearance on a talk show calls into question just how far the likes of an elected trustee can go, particularly as they govern the field of education. Former long-time school board member Sandra Bourque said trustees can do or say anything they want — but there may be a price to pay. “At times, you may diminish your effectiveness as a school trustee when you continually promote a certain party’s point of view,” said Bourque. “When I was speaking on issues outside of being a trustee, I tended to tone down my views.

Continued from page 1 environmental concerns. “I was not speaking as a trustee and I believe I’m entitled to an opinion,” Chiu said of the criticism. “And as far as the environment is concerned, I have energy-saving light bulbs all over my house, I installed water-saving toilets personally and my family are heavy into recycling; we recycle everything.” Chiu added that he’s the trustee who’s pushing the school district into using as little paper as possible. The school board’s “code of ethics” doesn’t deal with specifics of what a trustee can or cannot say.

“If (Chiu) is promoting something that’s contrary to the board’s policy, then that’s a problem. “He’s entitled to his opinions, of course. But you have to be careful as well.” Bourque said it’s important for trustees to remember they’re in charge of an environment that’s shaping young minds or risk losing another precious commodity — credibility. “I tried not to be too vociferous when I was a trustee,” she said. “People have the right to speak out and offer opinions, but it can have negative repercussions down the line if they want to be taken seriously.”

Richmond RCMP are trying to piece together how a man suffered two stab wounds to his chest early Tuesday morning in the Cambie/Shell Road area. RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Cam Kowalski said the victim was not cooperating with police, nor were witnesses. The man’s injuries were not considered life-threatening and was transported to

hospital. Kowalski said initial information indicated an incident took place at around 6:30 a.m. and possibly involved the nearby Holiday Inn Vancouver Airport. Meanwhile, Richmond RCMP were puzzled Monday night after responding to a home invasion report. Kowlaski said a 911 call was received from a home on Elmbridge Way at around

11 p.m. Two females said the residence had been broken into and items had been stolen. But when officers arrived on the scene, the pair of victims denied calling. Officers examined the scene and did not find any indications of a forced entry. Once the police concluded their interviews, the women boarded a flight for Taiwan — Philip Raphael

Specht: Volunteers are the heart, soul So, what was his motivation to volunteer? “It keeps me going. I have things to do every day. And I get to help people, as well,” he said. “Retirement sort of looms, and you think what am I going to do?” “Volunteers will be the heart and soul of Better at Home,” Specht said. “The more volunteers we’re able to recruit, the more clients we can help.” To volunteer, call 604-279-7020.

Continued from page 3 be Chester, 72, who has been at the wheel of a former Volunteer Richmond driving program which, among other volunteer efforts including Meals on Wheels, has kept the former newspaper printing technician busy. And when he provides a ride, it comes courtesy of his roomy, vintage MercedesBenz sedan. “I call it the ‘ponderous Panzer.”

News Street meat connoisseurs could soon enjoy more vendors BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Look for the sidewalks around No. 3 Road and Westminster Highway to possibly get a little more crowded before the end of summer. That’s when more street vendors are hoped to be in place for the city’s pilot project that so far has had just one business set up shop — Japadog. A second EOI (Expression of Interest) was recently set forth to attract other vendors. The deadline to submit an application is July 19.

In March, it was announced a total of three vendors were going to test the area’s foot traffic: Japadog, Falso Philly Steak and The Richmond Hospice Association, which planned to sell fresh cut flowers. The hospice society’s executive director Pat Miller said its table should be out by the end of July after getting bogged down in some small details that have delayed its debut. Miller said the table is planned to be set up just on Fridays from 2 to 6 p.m. and will be staffed by volunteers. “We’re excited by the project

and glad we are participating in it,” she said. City spokesperson Ted Townsend said there is optimism the remaining spaces will be occupied, and having a vendor such as Japadog already up and running has drawn the attention of other businesses. Townsend declined to say how many new businesses have shown interest. He was also reluctant to reveal any names of potential vendors. But one business owner not shy to express his interest is Dougie Luv, owner of Dougie Dog.

Luv said he would have liked to be part of the initial group of vendors, but only got wind of the program too late to apply. This time, though, Luv is going to throw his hat in the ring and would like to park his food truck on one of the corners. So, with Japadog across the street already, is Richmond in for a hot dog street fight? “It’s two different markets,” Luv said, adding his food truck’s menu is broader, offering French fries and poutine.

Little Sunshine crowned BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

When Jayden Woo said he wanted to be a model when he grows up, he wasn’t joking. After striking a few poses on stage, four-year-old Jayden sparked rapturous applause. And, not long after that, he was handed the title of Boy Champion of Little Sunshine 2013 — an annual competition run for Chinese-speaking kids by Fairchild Radio. The contest provides local talented youngsters the opportunities to star in Chinese films, TV commercials and photo shoots. The final took place at Aberdeen Centre, with eight finalists — four boys and four girls — who sang, danced, demonstrated kung fu and even recited poems on stage. Other winners included the girl champion Jessie Wong, 9, and the Best Smile Award winner Erika Chan, 8.

STEVESTON SECONDARY

Wendi Neuman

School land enters next phase BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

The short list of developers for the Steveston secondary site got shorter last Tuesday. Richmond School Board members have narrowed it down to three potential applicants. “They were all very high calibre, and I was very impressed with all of them,” said board chair Donna Sargent. The board will convene for a summer meeting on July 22 to consider the three submissions. Last month, five residential developers were chosen over a dozen who applied to build on the 13-acre site along No. 2 Road. Board members based their criteria on value (financial compensation the district would receive), vision (for the neighbourhood that takes into account its surroundings) and voice (ensuring the residents have a say). “Voice was really important because we

really want a developer who will engage with the community and work with the city because the next phase is the rezoning,” said Sargent. Once a developer has been chosen, the process will be open to rounds of public consultation. The site will also have to be rezoned by the city, according to Sargent, which is currently only designated for educational purposes. The Ministry of Education approved the sale of the land in April, and since then the board has been working with private developers and the city to find an eligible buyer. It was previously determined that the land of the former Steveston secondary school was no longer needed for educational purposes due to a projected lack of growth in the area. The district hopes to use the money received from the sale towards a new school in the fast-growing city centre, estimated to cost around $40 million.

Shocking revelations Take a deep breath. Your hydro rates are going up. That was the word from Energy Minister Bill Bennett this week, citing years of infrastructure investment coupled with relatively small increases brought on by his government in previous years. But the increase in rates is a small annoyance when compared with the jolt we got from some of the other revelations about Hydro this week — pun fully intended. An internal audit of the Crown corporation found it was completely unprepared to deal with a natural disaster. Portions of the province would be left in the cold and dark for months if they were to be hit by a catastrophic event like the earthquake our scientists always remind us is coming. Perhaps the impending price hike wouldn’t be so bad if we knew it was going to pay for a system that will be there for us when we need it. Or perhaps it would go down easier if we knew ongoing infrastructure projects like Northwest Transmission Line were going to be completed reasonably close to its $404million budget, and not the $736 million it is projected at this week. This while government is ready to open its wallet for the Site C dam project, which is projected at $8 billion, and we still don’t know the real long-term cost of the dozens of independent power project contracts Hydro has signed. So, raise the rates if it will keep the juice flowing, but BC Hydro badly needs to get its house in order if we don’t want to go back to burning whale oil for warmth and light.

CHOICE WORDS

Hands off Garden City lands The Editor, Re: “Keep lands accessible,” Letters, July 5. I appreciated Floyd Murphy’s thoughtful discourse on the Garden City Lands. I agree with Mr. Murphy. While everyone was talking about what we should do with the Garden City Lands, and even council was holding an open house to invite ideas on what to do with the lands, my opinion has always been to “do nothing.” When we see a piece of green, open, land, why do we feel that we must do something to it? Have we stopped to consider that maybe the current state is already an excellent state? Our family nicknamed the Garden City Lands the “Lungs of Richmond.” It is the vast open living green field in which Richmond breathes to rejuvenate from the lifeless concrete, cement, vinyl and asphalt we have slapped all over Richmond. We enjoy watching the ground cover plants slowly grow in the spring, become taller and taller in the summer, then mowed in late fall. That is when the lands get its annual haircut. This cycle takes place year after year. The Garden City Lands is a green field smack in the centre of Richmond where your eyes can relax its muscles and your view stretches undisturbed all the way from Westminster to Alderbridge, from Garden City to No. 4 Road. Why is there a desperate need to disrupt this expanse? Not many cities have the luxury of having a piece of vast, green, open land right in its centre. Richmond is so fortunate to have it. How about leaving this precious green space alone? In the case of the Garden City Lands, I say “hands off ” rather than “hands on.” Maria Kwong Richmond

Young voters skewed election results One of the country’s top polling firms has investigated how it got the B.C. election forecast so wrong and has concluded one factor looms larger than any other: the low turnout of young people casting ballots. Angus Reid Public Opinion re-examined all its polling and its methodology and concluded that, more than anything else, the fact young people don’t vote nearly in as large numbers as older people skewed a series of polls. Forget theories about last minute vote-switching or general low voter turnout, pollster Angus Reid says in a five-page summary of his firm’s internal investigation. Instead he found “that almost all of the discrepancy with our poll boiled down to one issue: low turnout among young voters.” Young voters are defined as being under the age of 35. They make up roughly 30 per cent of the population, but only about 15 per cent of those who actually come out and vote. Reid’s analysis concluded that, had he made an appropriate adjustment to better reflect the make up of those who actually vote, his last poll would have showed a three per cent lead for the NDP (in other words, a statistical dead heat given the margin of error). He rightly notes that publishing such a finding a week before voting day may well have changed the media reporting on the campaign narrative, and predic-

Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE

tions of an NDP landslide would have been replaced with a too-close-to-call theme in news coverage. Ironically, the series of polls by Reid and others that misleadingly showed the B.C. Liberals far, far behind the NDP for the entire campaign may have helped Christy Clark’s campaign “by energizing her base to get out and vote in order to beat back, as W.A.C. Bennett famously called them in 1972, the ‘socialist hordes’,” Reid writes in his analysis. I think there is considerable truth in that conclusion. Senior NDP officials and candidates have told me they ran into a significant “fear factor” on the doorstep among many voters as the campaign wound down. “They weren’t happy with the Liberals, but they were afraid of us,” one top party official told me. “We remain vulnerable on that point and probably always will be vulnerable.” Reid, who has a long track record of accurate election polling, says he will change his firm’s polling methodology in the wake of the problems exposed by the recent election. Young people will have to be “weighted” in the polling

sample that is proportional to actual voters rather than the general population. Apparently, this is a problem that is unique to B.C. Other jurisdictions don’t seem to have the same level of disinterest in young people when it comes to voting. As a political journalist, I’ve relied on Reid’s polls since the mid-’80s for providing both an accurate snapshot of public opinion and a context on which to base political analysis. With the notable exception of the May 14 election, he’s always been right. In his analysis, Reid says he considered pulling out of polling altogether, which would have significant implications for political journalism. However, Reid has concluded that since corporations, special interest groups and political parties are still very much involved in polling, it is important that nonpartisan companies such as his continue their own polling. People may not like public opinion polling (particularly when their findings clash with their own views) but it is an important part of our democratic process. It’s good to know that pollsters like Reid are going to make changes to ensure their findings are more accurate. Now, if we can just get those young people to actually get out and vote.

Thanks to national security The Editor, Thanks to the quick action and co-operation between RCMP-led Integrated National Security Enforcement Team in B.C., CSIS, RCMP and other law enforcement agencies, a major tragedy has been averted from happening. All of these agencies must be commended for preventing carnage in our provincial capital on Canada Day. It is hard to imagine why two Canadian-born and bred suspects would allegedly plan to kill and injure innocent Canadians celebrating this country’s birthday with a great deal of enthusiasm. If these individuals are found guilty (and it should be noted they have only been charged and have yet to have a fair trial) this goes to show no community or country is safe from fanatics with twisted minds. Thank God the dedicated professionals charged with the safety and security of this nation and its citizens are pro-active, vigilent, alert and on the ball. Balwant Sanghera Richmond

Stop cart stealing The Editor, When you remove a shopping cart from the store property, it is actually stealing. Would you steal one bike per day? Some of our city residents are stealing one shopping cart per day or at least three to four carts per week as they travel home with their goods. Then they dump the carts on someone’s property. They never dump the cart on their own property as I see the thieves remove their bags from the cart and cross the street to the Lansdowne Towers. The blight to the neighbourhood of 20 shopping carts piled up is a problem that needs to be addressed. If someone steals three per week, they would be stealing 156 carts per year. Assume the cart costs a minimum of $100, the stolen property could cost the stores $15,600 annually. Buy your own cart and park it at home in your garage. At minimum, if stores could have cameras in their parking lot and start trying to fine people a significant amount for removing carts from their lot, it would be helpful in keeping our neighbourhoods clean. Let’s shame these thieves and stop them! Tamara Dixon Richmond

Community FINDING FAITH

More than a service Return of the Churches provide sense of belonging for immigrant population

BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Religion can often be viewed as a safe and familiar harbour for those new to a community. And in the case of the immigrant population prevalent in Richmond, it can also offer a way of escaping repression in their homeland and integrating into a new society. That’s the view of Rev. David Tsai of the Fujian Evangelical Church, whose 400 or so parishioners are made up almost entirely of immigrants from South East Asia — the Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The small number from mainland China, where Buddhism is the

dominant religion, have already been paced than in Asia.

Catholics

Campaign makes church more welcoming BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Call it the power of advertising, power of suggestion, or a basic desire to go back to your religious roots. Whatever it may be, the pews in Catholic churches across the Lower Mainland are getting a little more crowded these days. That’s the initial observation following a two-month long, TV advertising campaign last December and this January, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Vancouver, called “Catholics Come Home.” While the final results have yet to be compiled to identify just what effect the campaign has had, Catholic church officials are pleased with what they are hearing so far. But it’s not numbers they are mainly interested in — it’s the connections and re-connections the campaign has made. Paul Schratz, spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Vancouver, said that in his own parish one of the parishioners, who had not stepped foot inside the building since she made her first communion as a youngster, had recently returned to the fold. “She was around seven years old and something had happened in her parish, some type of dispute, and a falling out. And her family pulled out of the church and she never went back.” Never, that is, until now, when in her 80s, a connection was re-established. “She saw the TV ads and decided to return,” Schratz said. So how was that, and other similar re-connections, made? Schratz said the TV ad campaign addressed a shift in attitude within the church to be more approachable and inviting. “The thing that we’ve noticed is that there was a real need for our parishes and parish communities to become more evangelizing in spirit,” Schratz said. “And that’s one thing we noticed has happened. “There is more of a sense in the churches now of welcoming, prayer and personal outreach.” Previously, the perception was that all parishioners had to do was attend mass regularly and not look outside the church’s boundaries to address the rest of the population. At the forefront of the new approach was extending a personal invitation. “Most people who come to the church do it because of personal contact — somebody reaches out to them and invites them,” Schratz said. “And I think we have more of a sense now of what’s necessary. We can’t just be, sort of, pew occupiers. We have to be out there and inviting people to come to church.” And given the complexion of Lower Mainland residents when it comes to their relationship with religion, there is a perceived larger community to address. “Vancouver is the second-most secular city in the world — I think Berlin is first. So, there is obviously a lot of people here who don’t know about Jesus and have never been invited,” Schratz said. “And we realized this was a perfect opportunity we had been missing.” As for how much of a boost the campaign has had, the hard data is yet to be reviewed. But the population of Catholics — estimated at 450,000 across 79 parishes from Squamish to Hope, including four in Richmond — was already in good shape before Catholics Come Home was launched. “Our numbers had been steadily increasing,” Schratz said. “But we realized we were missing a lot of people, who, if you look a the size and growth across the Lower Mainland, a lot of them are already Christians, previously Catholic, but fell out of the practise of their faith. “We realized we were missing a large opportunity to spread the good news, as well call it, and to share that faith with other people.”

COMIC STRIP

Get set for more rascally adventures with Minoru BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Since he first appeared on the colouring contest page of the Richmond News several months ago, a certain rascally raccoon has taken on a life of his own. Thanks to the input from young readers, and their parents, Minoru got his name and he has embarked on a number of adventures in the city. His development has also been guided by artist Earthstar Smith of Lightsprout Productions who has penned the feature since its inception. Smith said he has thoroughly enjoyed his time so far with Minoru and looks forward to creating new adventures which will appeal to children and adults as the raccoon gets himself into situations that shed light on some issues here in Richmond. “I can’t say too much about what’s going to happen with Minoru,” Smith said, adding there are plans for other characters to enter the scene. “Minoru is going to add to his cast

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Earthstar Smith, of Lightsprout Production, is the mind behind the Minoru the Raccoon cartoons that have been appearing in past issues of the Richmond News. and continue to follow current events and happenings in Richmond, try to poke fun

at things, and create situations that kids and their parents can relate to on multiple

levels. “Let’s just say he’s going to have adventures on a grand scale, and also make friends on a small scale, as well.” Producing a single panel strip that incorporates so much life and mirth has been a challenge Smith has taken great pride and care in creating. “It’s been a great process for myself, as an artist” Smith said. “A lot of thinking goes into each one. “I am trying to, given the format, create a personality without using any words or dialogue. But just through the staging of the drawings I aim to draw out his personality to give both kids and adults a sense of who this raccoon is and what his mischievous goals look like.” Smith said he is pleased at how readers are reacting to Minoru. “And I like the fact of being able to introduce a topical or cultural elements to give the cartoon meaning outside the colouring contest.” For the continuing adventures of Minoru the Raccoon, check out future editions of the Richmond News.

Don’t confuse good entertainment with advice Seventh of a 10-part series I love the media! It entertains and informs me; I rely on it daily. Freedom of the media is enshrined in most democratic constitutions. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states it WEALTH well: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference, and impart information and ideas through any media regardless of frontiers.” This is all good, but it cannot be provided for free. That’s where you and I come in. If the media can keep our eyes and ears glued

to its content, then we will be more likely to see and hear the advertising messages that ultimately pay for the content. Bad news and shock value sells advertising and, in our hyper-stimulated technological world, the media needs to SMARTS compete fiercely. Building wealth in the capital markets is a long-term endeavour that does not frequently capture media attention. People are more likely to be drawn to outrageous and shocking messages such as, “Housing Meltdown,” “Dow takes Record Plunge” or “Ten Cheap Stocks to Own Now!” I shudder at the wealth that was perma-

nently lost when investors bailed out of their equity investments in early March of 2009 and missed out on the opportunity to perhaps double their money since then, content to “go broke safely” within the comfort of a “safer” GIC portfolio. I partially blame the talking heads of major network television. The short-term focus is particularly obvious in articles that dispense investment advice and are framed to appeal to human emotion, especially fear and greed. Investors should view these messages as entertainment. Warren Buffett once said, “To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information. What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions

Hat trick of B.C. titles for Richmond teams Departing coach Clive Clarke guides his third local side to a provincial championship in the past 10 years BY MARK BOOTH

mbooth@richmond-news.com

On a simmering Sunday afternoon in Langley, a highly successful coaching era came to an end at least for now. Clive Clarke’s U13 Richmond All-Stars completed a dominant season by capturing the Provincial “A” Cup with a decisive 3-0 victory over Kamloops. The All-Stars are the third local team Clarke has guided to a provincial title, having enjoyed previous success with the Richmond Madrid boys team and the Richmond Red Hot Selects girls side. However, the impressive run has come to a halt after the Richmond Girls Soccer Association executive decided not to bring Clarke back to coach at the U14 Metro next season. His daughter Ebony, who scored all three goals in the cup final, will be playing at the B.C. Premier level for Coastal FC. Clarke has younger children playing within RGSA and is receiving plenty of interest from other clubs for his services. Right now, he is focused on being a father and supportive of his children’s activities. His son Caleb is under contract with the Whitecaps while daughter Summer is soon headed to Louisiana State University on a full-ride scholarship. Another daughter, Jade, plays Premier for Surrey United. “Yes I’m a demanding coach who challenges my players but it’s about properly teaching the technical side of the game and, more importantly, leading to them playing some good soccer and understanding the game better,” said Clarke of his winning formula which features an attacking brand of soccer. “If the kids can get use to the work ethic I expect of them, then they will

just blossom. “This (U13) group worked very hard and had a lot of success because of it.” The All-Stars run to the cup title included wins over Port Moody (4-2) Harbour City FC (3-2) and playing Kamloops to an earlier scoreless draw. Meanwhile, Richmond teams captured titles in two other divisions. Richmond Synergy also completed the prestigious triple (Metro League, Coastal and Provincial champions) with a 3-2 win in penalty kicks over defending provincial champions Kamloops Blazers. The Synergy looked to be in full control with a 2-0 first half lead and the Blazers down to 10 players after a red card for an intentional hand ball. Richmond had a number of opportunities to extend its lead and put the match out of reach but failed to bury its chances, opening the door for a gritty Blazers team to battle back. Twenty minutes of overtime couldn’t determine a winner before Synergy finally prevailed in penalty kicks. Despite all the drama, head coach Ron Ng was confident his girls would prevail and it didn’t have anything to do with Richmond enjoying about 70 percent of the territorial play. “Sounds kind of cliché but I never had any doubt that our girls were going to win,” said Ng of his first provincial title with this team. “I don’t know what it was but I just refused to think the result would go any other way. We controlled the majority of the play but we have had a lot of games go that way for us this season where the outcome was much closer than it should have been. see Provincials page 21

Provincials: United avenge Coastal Cup loss to capture U18 boys championship

MARK BOOTH/RICHMOND NEWS

Richmond All-Stars dominated Kamloops from start to finish in the U13 girls Provincial Cup final, winning 3-0.

Continued from page 19 “Give Kamloops a lot of credit. They were defending provincial champions for a reason and overcame some adversity and played with a lot of heart.” The Synergy opened with a 4-1 victory over North Shore, then battled the Saanich Fusion to a 2-2 draw. The cup final preview on Saturday produced a scoreless result. U18 Richmond United boys put last May’s heartbreaking Coastal Cup final result behind them in a big way by capturing the B.C. title against the very same team. United completed an unbeaten run in Langley with a 3-2 win over Burnaby in the championship game, the exact same score they had lost to their Metro League rival in the Coastal final. “I just think we were just in much better form for this tournament,” said United coach Ted Lorenz. “We were battling injuries

U13 Richmond All-Stars added a Provincial Cup to their Metro and Coastal titles and were kinda flat for the Coastal game. This time we were better prepared. A week earlier we played a men’s team in an exhibition game that plays a similar style to Burnaby. We lost the game but it really helped get us ready for them.” Richmond served notice early by defeating Burnaby 2-1 in round-robin play en

route to the final. What makes this feat even more impressive is only one player will be lost to graduation, with the bulk of the roster having won the provincial cup at the U16 level in Kamloops last year. A long season isn’t quite finished yet as the team is headed to Seattle for a tournament before a welldeserved break.

Corner kicks... Rounding out the local entries was U15 Richmond United capping its outstanding season with a bronze medal. The Metro League and Coastal Cup champs edged Coquitlam Metro Ford 1-0 in the third place game. Earlier, Richmond fell 1-0 to eventual champion Saanich and defeated Kamloops 2-0.
