Proposed new measures to protect Richmond’s farmland from illegal dumping of material are a step in the right direction, but need to be based on a sustainable funding model. That’s the opinion of Thomas Loo, a To send us former Agricultural feedback Land Commission employee and Richmond resident. Loo, who served as the ALC’s agricultural compliance and environment officer, said Richmond should enact a bylaw requiring a permit to deposit soil anywhere in the city, not just on property protected by the Agricultural Land Reserve. He said that approach is a common practice in many communities such as Abbotsford, Langley, and

Implement a soil permit in all of Richmond and include the volumetric fees,” Loo said. “When I look around and see the piles of pre-load all over in the non-ALR areas, I just think of the huge amount of money that they could be getting. “For me the answer is ‘yes,’ the soil cops are needed, but let’s fund them in a way that will be sustainable.” Online feedback on the proposals can be made at www.

Flames fanned over ‘ethnic-gate’ BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Recent revelations that allegedly point to the B.C. Liberal Party’s attempt to hush a staffer has re-ignited the furore over the ethnic outreach program. NDP leader Adrian Dix told the Richmond News that new documents his party attained suggest a government staffer was offered an “inducement” to keep quiet on the matter to protect the provincial Liberal Party and premier heading into May’s B.C. election. “It’s a very serious situation that they would act that way,” Dix said from Victoria, adding the alleged conduct “raises serious issues about the ... government’s conduct.” Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap resigned his position as minister of multiculturalism when it was learned the government had used government resources to compile a contact list. Richmond Centre MLA Teresa Wat now counts that multiculturalism position in her portfolio of ministerial responsibilities. Previously, the government has claimed the plan was developed by party staffers to use taxpayer resources to help gain ethnic votes for the B.C. Liberal Party, but was never put in place. Dix contends Yap used his personal email to avoid the scrutiny of a Freedom Of Information request in regards to the alleged offer to staff. Asked what he would like to have the government do in light of the revelation, Dix said, “First of all, there has to be accountability for what happened here. “And what plainly happened here is that the Liberal Party went out and offered an

inducement to silence somebody. And ministers of the Crown were party to it. And that’s a pretty serious situation. “They (government) may think that hiding it until after the election and then responding to all the questions is sufficient. But it plainly isn’t in the public’s mind,” Dix added. “Mr. Yap has to explain why he was involved in such a thing, what he did about it at the time, and why he was clearly using, inappropriately, government funds to promote the party.” Dix said if the new information had come to light prior to the May 14 election, it would have been a “bombshell” for the B.C. Liberal Party and Premier Christy Clark, which lagged behind the NDP in the polls. In Richmond, all three B.C. Liberal candidates, including Yap, were elected. Speaking from Victoria, Wat told the News her party had previously apologized for the situation, refunded the money ($70,000) assessed spent in the ethnic outreach program, and admitted what had transpired was wrong. However, she maintained that, because the inducement was declined, there was no wrong-doing. “What we are saying is that the emails referred to by Adrian Dix and whatever was discussed was wrong and inappropriate. But what the report found out was that no actions had been taken,” added Wat, referring to premier Clark’s deputy minister John Dyble’s investigation into the scandal. That did not satisfy Dix who said the staffer’s decline of the offer does not absolve the government of any wrongdoing. “The question is not whether it was accepted,” said Dix. “The bad behaviour on the part of the government is the offer, and the conspiracy to offer.”

Shelter beefs up inventory Stabbing silence thwarting cops PHOTO SUBMITTED

THIS LITTLE

BROWN CALF WAS FOUND WANDERING THROUGH EAST RICHM OND.

Richmond’s animal shelter this week beefed up its inventory of creatures lost and found. Mingling with the stray cats, dogs, rabbits and Guinea pigs is a little brown calf, who Mounties found wandering around Sidaway Road in east Richmond on Monday. The RCMP were first sent out to the 8600 block after a report of a “road hazard,” before it became apparent the obstruction had four legs, a tail and a wet nose. Once the calf was secured, it was taken to RAPS (Richmond Animal

Protection Society) and steps are now being taken to reunite the calf with its mother. If you’re missing a calf, contact the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 or call RAPS at 604-274-2036.

Mounties in Richmond are dealing with another stabbing and another case of a victim and witnesses not talking. This time, the incident, a stabbing, took place in Ceili’s bar on Westminster Highway and Alderbridge Way on July 13. According to the RCMP, the incident kicked off when an argument started between two groups of males, who are known to police. It then escalated into the stabbing of one

member of the two groups. The man, in his mid-20s, was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and was later released. “The victim is, at the moment, being uncooperative and we’ve been unable to ascertain who was involved,” said Sgt. Cam Kowalski, of Richmond RCMP. “We’re trying to get to the bottom of what happened and hopefully make an arrest.” Earlier this month, local Mounties faced a similar, silent response after a man suffered two stab wounds to his chest in the Cambie/Shell Road area.

A $10,000 public art project is set to get the real hands-on treatment from an entire community. From visualizing to fabricating to installing, the West Richmond Community Centre project will be made by the people, for the people. The project is proposed for the West Richmond Community Centre’s main entrance stairwell with a theme of “Movement,” and will be led by Vancouver artist Jeanette Lee, who will work with com-

munity members to make human profile shapes to be placed along the wall. The human shapes will be life-sized and images of shoes are proposed for the landings. Using paint and/or digital printing methods, the profile shapes will be illustrated by community members of all ages. Half of the project’s $10,000 cost will be paid by the community centre and half from the city’s public art fund. Lee was chosen from a short-list of four artists by a three-strong community-led panel. Installation of the project is scheduled to be completed by spring 2014.

Spiritual aspect of practice lost as yoga turns into fitness routine: Critics BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

On a sunny Tuesday evening, a gathering of predominantly middle-aged women roll out their yoga mats on the docks at Britannia Heritage Shipyard. Yogi and Steveston Community Centre employee Vicky Petrescu guides the class through child’s poses, warriors, sun salutations and more. The class is usually held at the Japanese Cultural Centre, but setting suns and an inspiring natural environment draws the participants down to the docks during the warm, dry weather. But be it practised inside or out, the rise of yoga in Richmond goes unabated. As many as a couple dozen can fill the classes. “We’re all busier than we’ve ever been,” says longtime yogi Margie Hardy, who usually teaches the class. “In a way, yoga gives you more time, you get more time in your life by forcing yourself to set it aside. You can be quiet and calm down.” To her, yoga becomes an identity, a way of life. She also points to the physical and mental benefits. “It’s about how to live life and keep calm,” she says. “Yes, there’s the spiritual side, absolutely. The purpose of the poses is to find the key to inner contentment.”

gurus” from claiming ownership of postures that have been taught for thousands of years.

Return to tradition, Vedic teaches all eight limbs

This was a trend noticed by the Ram Krishna Mandir at the Vedic Cultural Centre, the Hindu temple on No. 5 Road. In response, the temple offers yoga classes that return to the Indian tradition. “We saw how it was being adopted by Western culture and wanted to share some knowledge about its origins and how it’s practised in India,” says Bimla Veer Singh, the temple’s secretary and coordinator. Free of frills, people learn not only how to transition from cobra to downward dog, but about the Hindu culture and the origins of yoga. The centre keeps the costs low and all money goes back to the maintenance of the temple. Yogis are encouraged to wear loose and comfortable cotton clothing, which is advised in some of the ancient texts. “The Western world has taken the yoga part out of the practice and focused on the body part, the physical, and people feel like that’s good enough,” said Singh, a practising Hindu. In actual fact, the poses are only one part of the eight limbs of ashtanga yoga. To

engage in the full practice means incorporating all eight limbs. But Singh is encouraged that people are starting to realize that there is more to yoga than poses, “and are learning more about the practice, going on retreats.” Naseem Gulamhusein, an instructor who runs a program at Langara College, also worries the spirit of profit is overwhelming the spirit of peace and contemplation. “It’s become about how to make middleaged women sexy in these tight yoga pants,” says Gulamhusein. “Yoga pants shouldn’t be a thing. “I always like to say, ‘all good things must come to a trend.’”

Instructor helps preserve original teachings

Gulamhusein, who has been practising yoga for 13 years, started the program to become a certified instructor at Langara in order to preserve the original teachings and add a sense of standardization. “Yoga’s not regulated, so where’s the accountability?” she asks. “Anyone can take a few training courses here and there, and then start training others. The teachers have a lot of power and people are buying into it. In some cases, teachers are totally exploiting students.” see Practice page 9

While few would argue with the potential health benefits of yoga, there is also growing concern about how yoga is practised in western culture. Although some aspects are true to the ancient Indian spiritual practice, highpriced, form-fitting clothing has also jumped on the bandwagon as the Eastern tradition has moved west. Like many things Western, yoga has, in many cases, become a hyper-commercialized, capitalist venture where “yoga pants” are a necessity, expensive classes consist of moving from pose to pose, and the overall benefits focus on body toning and physical fitness. In fact the “corporatizing” of yoga caused the Indian government to put 1,300 distinct yoga positions into the public domain, preventing “self-styled yoga

Practice: Enables one to express inner divinity Continued from page 8 Gulamhusein blames the idealization of the yoga teacher as one of the driving forces behind the high prices. It leads to the glamourization of the tradition taking it from spiritual quest to status symbol. Even more detrimental, she fears the marketing of yoga as an expensive pursuit keeps it inaccessible for the people who need it the most. “There are people who offer yoga classes to those in the Downtown Eastside or at women’s shelters,” she says. “But the domination of the expensive studio makes it harder to find these low-cost centres.”

Cultural appropriation

Moreover, the commercialization of yoga is tantamount to cultural appropriation. “It’s deep in Indian philosophy and is about deep spiritual practices that Hinduism took, so to take it out of spirituality is to appropriate it and make it a trend,” says Gulamhusein. “When you just take what you want from another cultural practice, that’s cultural appropriation.” Some of the other seven limbs of yoga include ethics, self-discipline and spiritual observances, sensory transcendence and meditation. Observing all eight is to practise yoga, the purpose of which is to lead to enlightenment and self-realization. Recently, a California judge ruled that yoga can be taught in public schools because it’s not teaching children religion, rather “despite its roots in Hindu philosophy, it is part of American culture.” However, to view yoga through a religious or nonreligious framework is problematic. In a piece for the Vancouver Observer, Anupreet Sandhu Bhamra writes, “the ‘Hindu’ way of worship, belief, practice, way of living is all part of the Yogic philosophy.” Yoga philosophy is written in Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language, in which there is no word for religion. The closest translation is dharm and the set of philosophies that make up Hinduism are called the Sanatana Dharma. These philosophies provide codes of conduct, which differ from person to person. There’s no universal code or holy book, as is the case with most religions. Instead of seeking a divine entity outside the person and needing an agent, such as a priest, the Hindu belief is that

JOHN CORREA/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

A yoga class, usually conducted at the Japanese Cultural Centre, takes advantage of the warm weather and practises outside at the Britannia Heritage Shipyard. every being is divine within and the purpose of yoga is to help a person reach that divinity. As Hinduism draws on numerous aspects of life including science and the environment, doing yoga doesn’t necessarily mean engaging in a religious practice, but it is engaging in the Sanatana Dharma. “But you still can’t strip yoga off Hinduism,” Bhamra writes. “By doing so, you are robbing yoga of its essence. The cultural appropriation will serve no purpose other than making yoga a new form of a quiet exercise routine, which the West has unashamedly done to a great extent.”

Awareness can only help

Unlike Gulamhusein, Hardy doesn’t mind the current trend of yoga because of what it does to an individual — whether spiritual or not — once they leave a yoga class. No matter how it’s being marketed, what goes on in an actual class through poses and breathing helps lead an individual to finding that enlightenment within. “I think it’s only helped increase the

awareness of yoga,” Hardy says. “The more awareness that’s raised about it, the better off we are as a society. It’s a very peaceful practice, so the more we can spread it throughout society, the more we can benefit from it. “Understanding the teaching is good, but it’s also a wonderful practice for your body.” Singh agrees that even if the focus is on the movement of the body, most classes do use ancient terms in an effort to educate the attendees. “It does provide some benefit, the physical still affects the rest of you, your mind, your mental state,” says Singh. “Usually when people start yoga because of the physical benefits, they end up learning more about it anyway. It’s fine if you want to just focus on the body, but I don’t think it’s always enough.” The benefits of yoga, as it is practised by Western society, are undeniable, but without the other aspects of the tradition, Gulamhusein says it just shouldn’t be called yoga. “It can be a great form of exercise, but if you’re taking the spirituality side out of it, it’s not yoga.”

Troubled waters

Two more people drowned over the weekend — one in the Okanagan and another on Vancouver Island, after the July 18 drowning of a 21-year-old Port Coquitlam man in Alouette Lake. So far this year, 43 people have drowned in B.C., almost twice as many as at the same time last year. The Lifesaving Society of B.C. and the Yukon keeps track, and said drowning numbers are rising over the long term. No one should have to avoid going to B.C.’s lakes and waterways. In addition to offering stunning scenery and recreation opportunities, they can be vital during hot spells at providing places for people to cool off, but B.C. lakes, rivers, creeks, and watercourses are also places where people can get into trouble. Swimming in a lake is different from swimming in a pool. Bodies of water have their own currents, and lake and river water levels change throughout the year. The temperature of natural water bodies is usually colder, as well. People can’t assume that, because a lake site or other waterfront spot is public, there will be help at hand. Cutbacks have meant there are few lifeguards at public lakes and swimming spots around B.C. And it takes time for emergency crews to get to these spots. As has been shown, a person can drown or get into serious trouble even when surrounded by hundreds of people. Often, by the time a person realizes he or she is in trouble, there is neither energy nor voice to summon help. Always use safety gear in or near water, keep the booze at home, and before any risky behaviours or extreme adventures, always assume you are not as good a swimmer/diver/boater as you imagine.

CHOICE WORDS

Stealing from kids, really? The Editor, Re: “Latest theft leaves bad taste in kids’ mouths,” News, July 19. It was with great dismay that I read about yet another theft from a community garden. As one of the volunteers for the Lord Byng elementary garden club, I can understand the disappointment of the students from Spul’u’kwuks who worked so hard to grow their various crops. Lord Byng has also been a victim of theft these past three years. Our students have worked hard preparing the gardens for planting a variety of vegetables and herbs and maintaining the gardens in anticipation of a bountiful harvest. I was very proud to learn that the students unanimously decided to donate all our produce to the food bank and to community meal programs. Sadly, last year someone carefully “harvested” the scapes from the Byng garden and then came back for the garlic and many other vegetables. To add insult to injury, sometime in the last four days, someone came and relieved us of our potatoes, radishes and trampled the few remaining vegetables we had in the garden. As a result, we are again unable to fully honour our commitment of donating food to the programs. Some may call it ignorance, some may call it disrespect — I call it stealing, plain and simple. Shame on those responsible for pilfering these gardens and destroying the children’s hard work. V.A. Stevenson Steveston

Stellar by name, but not by nature I had to take the car (I’ve owned it long enough for a simple definite article) through AirCare this week, for the last time. It got a simple pass after they hooked up its electronic guts to a computer and determined it had been a good little engine for the past two years. They printed out my pass form on the last dot matrix printer in B.C. and sent me away. It’s the last time I’ll have to get the car AirCared, as the program is ending as of this year. That will feel strange. I’ve been driving cars through AirCare testing bays ever since I started driving. The program started in 1992, two years before I got my license. My cars and AirCare have seldom been friends. Like most of us, I owned a series of early vehicles that teetered on the line between “car” and “pile of rolling metal.” My worst car was a 1988 Hyundai Stellar. Never heard of the Stellar? That’s because of its painful failure to live up to its name. A small fourdoor sedan, it’s main selling feature was the very small amount of money I paid for it. It took me to and from college and survived almost through a full year of my first postschooling job. Even before its untimely death, it had seen the white light at the end of the tunnel a few times. It’s most impressive near-death experience was

its black lung disease. Apparently, for the entire life, the exhaust system had been building up deposits that were slowly choking the engine to death. The car started losing power so slowly that I hardly noticed, until going up hills was as painful as a three-pack-a-day smoker climbing 10 flights of stairs. I took the alleged car to two repair shops. The first one quoted me a price of $1,300 to fix it, approximately five times what I judged the car to be worth. The next shop suggested $1,600 would be an appropriate repair bill. Possibly taking pity on my sad facial expression (I was still in school and approaching dead broke) the fellow there suggested I take it to Kershaw Performance, an old-school shop that still operates here in Langley. The Kershaw mechanic poked his head under the hood, said he could maybe do something about it, and then took out a thin piece of steel rod, inserted it into the engine, and whaled on it with a ball peen hammer. After he dislodged the accumulated gunk, the car ran for another year before it succumbed to a new ail-

ment. They charged me $25. The Stellar’s tale was not yet over, however. I put it up for sale, basically willing to accept any offer. A friend of a friend of a neighbour turned up and offered me $300 for the barelymobile vehicle, and I took it without haggling. He then gave me $150 - all in $5 bills that smelled suspiciously of cannabis — and drove it away. After he was gone, I noticed that he had filled out part of the transfer papers incorrectly. I tried to call him, but for three days, he ducked my calls, probably because he didn’t want to pay me the remainder of the money. The next day, I got a call from the RCMP. Did I know that a car registered to me had sped away from a police stop, run over a stop sign, and crashed into a ditch? Had the driver, now in cells, stolen my car? I explained the situation, and I swear I could hear the officer on the other end of the line roll her eyes when I mentioned the pile of $5 bills. The car was still legally mine, she said, and I could come down to the impound yard and pick it up if I wanted to pay the fee. Otherwise, it would be crushed into a cube. It would cost about $150 to get it back. I left it to its fate, and it has now likely been reincarnated as a crate of toasters. Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

A lottery ticket to ride

The Editor, I am 94-years-old and walk with a cane. The other day, I caught a #401 bus at Brighouse station. The driver saw me hurrying to the stop and patiently waited for me. He smiled when I got on and waited until I was seated before he started. A real gentleman. Later, I caught another #401 at Westminster Highway at No. 3 Road. I was the last one on and the driver closed the door, catching me as I was getting on. He then started with a jerk, sending me

flying down the aisle. Luckily, I landed on someone’s lap, rather than the floor. Another passenger steadied me until I was seated. If that wasn’t enough, he sailed through my stop, even though I had pulled the cord — twice! I had to catch another bus back to my proper stop. I was too mad to get the bus number, but I will be watching for this ignorant, uncivil, nasty cowboy. Ella Johnson Richmond

Take a tug on Sister City spending reins The Editor, Re: “Only council benefits...” Letters, July 17. I certainly agree with the letter from KC Tuey regarding the useless waste of our taxpayer money on the past Sister City twinning trips to Japan, China and other locales. Who went on these junkets to far away places? Various council members, senior

Richmond staff and one or two Richmond citizens. I expressed my opinion some time ago about the need for us taxpayers to curtail such junkets using taxpayers’ dollars! As a recent headline stated, ‘Sister city spending plans put on hold.’ Let’s hope so!! Restraint starts here. L. Hillman Richmond

Letters POLITICS

Richmond deserves better answers The Editor, This past week, the issue of the Liberal government’s “ethnic-gate” scandal arose once again during Question Period in the B.C. Legislature. The BC Liberals offered money to a government employee to keep quiet about information that would damage the party and the Premier. This scandal has a significant tiein to Richmond. Former Minister of Multiculturalism and Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap was in charge of the department in question and was forced to resign. And the current Minister of Multiculturalism, Richmond Centre MLA

Teresa Wat, gave stonewall answers when asked questions about the hush money issue on day one of Question Period. She went back home, read the Liberal scripts and came back for day two of Question Period with answers full of rhetoric. My question: Why are our elected MLAs more concerned with re-election than with serving the constituents of their riding? Why are taxpayer resources being used for political expedience?

A thoughtful touch for the new Silverado is putting in bumper steps and grab slots in the top of the box to help getting in and out. BY MALCOLM GUNN Special to the News

In pickup parlance, the chase isn’t just on, it never really stops. With the arrival of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, the pace is definitely quickening. In 2012, 265,000 domestic- and foreign-based 1500, 2500- and 3500-series pickups were sold in Canada and 40 per cent belonged to Ford. GM’s Silverado/Sierra models finished solidly in second place, ahead of Chrysler’s Ram and well ahead of the Toyota Tundra, and Nissan Titan. With the all-new Silverado 1500-series, Chevrolet appears to have done its homework and paid close attention to what buyers are looking for to haul and tow their stuff. There are more powerful engines as well as improvements and upgrades in nearly every other category you could imagine. The one area that Chevy’s truck designers appear to have tinkered with the least

is the sheetmetal. The new Silverado bears more than a passing resemblance to the outgoing model. In front, the twin stacked headlights remain, but the grille is now much more prominent and tougher looking. As well, the hood and fenders bulge out more aggressively than before. Behind the tailgate, the handy “Corner Step” bumper has recessed footholds that, combined with built-in handholds inside the box, make accessing the bed much easier. The dashboard and control panel that houses the optional eight-inch touch screen are positioned in a tidy pod for easy viewing, and all of the oversized knobs and switches are work-glove-friendly and clearly marked. All body styles — regular, extended Double Cab (now featuring front-hinged rear doors with outside handles) and four-door Crew Cab — are attached to a reworked frame with more high-strength steel, extra

bracing for stiffness and improved body mounts that help isolate road noise and vibration. The revised suspension places the wheels on each axle farther apart with a goal to improve overall ride and stability. For 2014, Chevrolet has made a few changes to the Silverado’s box size/cab combinations. Now you can order the Crew Cab with a longer 80-inch (200-centimetre) bed as well as the standard 68-inch (175-centimetre) version. Perched between the frame rails is a choice of three new, all-aluminum cam-in-block engines. The entry point is a 4.3-litre V6 that features the same displacement as the previous V6, but the output has significantly increased to 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque from 195/260. Optional is a 5.3litre V8 with 355 horses and 383 pound-feet on tap, up from 315/335. Later in the model year they’ll be joined by an available 6.2-litre V8 rated at 420 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, which shares its parts with the new Corvette sports car V8. All three powerplants feature direct injection, which tailors the fuel load for the task at hand. They also have continuously variable valve timing (which allows in more fuel see Interior page 20

DriveTime Garage helps rally drivers finish Interior: For luxury truckers Father, son duo place third at Peking to Paris BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Thanks to the efforts of a Richmond garage a pair of road rally adventurers completed the Peking to Paris Motoring Challenge 2013 last month. Stephanie Recavarren of Juan’s Auto Service said the Vancouver father and son duo of Gary and John Anderson earned a bronze medal in their category after piloting a 1930 Ford Model A Cabriolet through 15 countries and 12,247 kilometres of demanding terrain. “Their car held up really well,” Recavarren said, “although they did run into some problems near the end on some of the steep hills in Austria. But they managed to complete it and their time was very good.” The rally started May 29 in China and finished at Place Vendome in Paris on June 29. Recavarren said Gary, a 75-year-old commercial real estate owner in Vancouver, said his Model A suffered the least mechanical problems than all the other entries in the pre-1941 vintage category, but were ultimately undone by the Austrian topography. “Whatever everyone was telling them before they went about how hard the conditions would be, John said it was 10 times worse,” Recavarren said.

Gary and John Anderson ramble through a particularly arid portion of the rally in Mongloia. Some of the modifications the Richmond garage made to the Model A included a secondary fuel tank, GPS equipment, four-point harnesses for both driver and navigator, and a more robust suspension on the rear wheels. Plans are to ship the car back to Canada and have it worked on at the Richmond shop. Recavarren said she is very proud of the work the garage performed to get the Model A rally ready. “It was awesome,” she said, adding that following the Anderson’s progress on the Peking to Paris website gave her goosebumps. “Not only because we were part of it, but it was the spirit that they both had driving so far. At one point they had to drive for 25 hours. They did a great job.”

The new High Country gets a nicely-turned-out interior. It’s designed for the growing luxury-truck segment, although the GMC Sierra Denali will be one notch up still. Continued from page 18 and air depending in the power needs and cylinder deactivation that cuts off up to half the cylinders in light load and cruise situations. The transmission for all is a six-speed automatic. The result, at least for the more muscular V6, is a significant fuel economy improvement in city and highway driving (best guess of 12.0 l/100 km in the city and 7.8 on the highway, compared to 14.1/10.0 for the previous V6). Chevrolet also likes to point out that it has managed to increase performance and reduce fuel consumption across the line

without resorting to complex (and expensive) turbo-charging. That’s a direct shot at the Ford F-Series and its “Ecoboost” V6. Of course you can order your Silverado as a stripped-down, rubber-matted V6 work rig with a $27,150 sticker, or head all the way up to the new and thoroughly trickedout High Country 4x4 with a correspondingly high list price. It’s a brand new trim level designed to keep well-to-do ranchers driving in the lap of luxury. Whichever pickup matches your needs, know that Chevrolet has made the right changes for a more refined and fuel efficient Silverado to keep pace with Ford.

Breaking the Curse

Wealth Transfer and Lost Inheritance

The famous American publication The Wall Street Journal published an article earlier this year detailing the results of a study, and discussions with several financial advisors, about inheritance and how Americans are handling (and have handled) them. I expect the situation is not far different in Canada, at least in principle. The Boston College Centre for Retirement Research has stated that two-thirds of baby boomers will inherit family money, mostly in their later middle age, totaling $7.6 trillion (plus whatever money they may receive while their parents are alive). American household wealth, at the end of 2012, was estimated to be $64.8 trillion. These amounts are staggering, to be sure. The United States (and Canada) is in the midst of perhaps its largest-ever intergenerational wealth transfers. So the question under investigation is what gets done with the money, once inherited. QUICK SUMMARY The investigation seems to have concluded that the phrase “shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations” applies. There is no shortage of horror stories, with several cases of large amounts of money being spent quickly, such that someone asks one day, “Where did it all go?” (after it’s too late, of course). SOME OF THE PEOPLE The late Charles Rogerson was a New England banker who built the Boston Safe Deposit and Trust. His brother prepared several (tax-protected) trusts to prevent the family fortune from being wasted. Nevertheless, Charles’ son was able to exhaust the fortune through his hobbies and the collapse of his large real estate project in the 1980s. Charles’ grandson, Tom Rogerson, is now a wealth strategist, travelling the U.S. in an effort to teach prospective clients about how to retain their family fortune. THERE ARE OTHER BRIEF HISTORIES OF FAMILY FORTUNES WASTED: 1. The Vanderbilts. Their fortune came from railroads and shipping, and totaled about $100 billion. The heirs apparently went “hog wild,” and in a 1973 family reunion of about 120 people, there was not a single millionaire. 2. Mr. Huntington Hartford II. His family fortune originated with the famous A&P store chain. He went through hundreds of millions and died at 97, having lost tremendous amounts through “investments” such as a Manhattan art museum, a California artists' colony and a Bahamian resort development (the latter included gold-plated bathroom fixtures and a medieval cloister). 3. Barbara Woolworth Hutton. Her fortune came from the legendary “five and dime” stores. She apparently went through about $1 billion on such items as art and jewellery, not to mention seven husbands. She died with a net worth of $3,500. WHAT WENT (AND WHAT GOES) WRONG It appears some things don’t change from generation to generation. The Boston College study shows that family money rarely survives long. By the second generation, 70% is typically gone. After the third, 90% is gone. The first problem seems to be that money spreads thinly over a fastgrowing family tree (or trees). And many of those on the tree(s) are inexperiencedathandlinglargeamountsof money.Thestudyspeaksof“sudden wealth syndrome” that lottery winners, athletes and others experience. The other problem is that inheritors feel they can go on permanent vacations, without having to create new income streams. The advisors suggest that inheritors don’t understand well enough that future financial success will depend on them, not someone else! THE OTHER PROBLEM Today’s economy and investment climate are perhaps more challenging than ever. The amount of debt in the world makes all countries’ economies volatile and uncertain. Investing is harder, such that inheritors face serious concerns in trying to retain and even grow their family fortune, or their own inheritances. In my view, many of the boomers who inherit will have to use the funds for their own retirements, aside from thinking about the future generations’ inheritance. PERPETUATING THE WEALTH/INHERITANCE FOR MULTIPLE GENERATIONS Where do we go with all this? Well, regardless of the amount of the inheritance, the task for inheritors is to invest the funds and, at minimum, increase the family’s or inheritor’s income. If the inheritor is still employed or running a business, stay with it if it's possible and sensible to do so. Grow the inheritance rather than stopping work, so that the next generation will have a better inheritance. Another point the article makes is that the next generation should be taught at an early age about managing and investing money. Involving children in investment decisions is crucial for their future skills and values regarding money (and other assets that can be inherited). Another way to look at this issue is what some advisors call “the business of the family" – which involves finding ways to lower the probability of family fights down the road. CONCLUSIONS In my opinion, any person inheriting now or in the future should try to prepare for it in some way, depending of course on their circumstances. In a sense, an inheritance is a blessing and a curse. I find it unsurprising, given human nature, that there are fortunes blown and stories of extravagance. Both are to be expected with significant inheritances. The challenge is to learn how to manage assets. That is why financial and other advisors can be critical. For example, here in the Lower Mainland, an inheritance coming from a house and some money in the bank may not have been significant 30 years ago. Today, however, such an Estate can easily be worth more than $1 million. If there are only two or even fewer inheritors, that inheritance is worth managing. Properly planned, such an inheritance can finance the inheritor’s future.

Midsummer Art winners revealed BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

After poring over more than 65 pieces of original art and photography, judges have picked the two winners of the Community Arts Council of Richmond’s (CACR) 2nd annual Midsummer Arts’ Dream. The exhibition of photography and paintings, over three days last weekend, was held at Thompson Community Center. More than 30 professional and emerging artists and photographers put their work on show for the 450-plus guests who attended the event, which is part of CACR’s series of exhibitions. The winners in each category — Painting: Annie Tsai (Pink Sisters) and Photography: Laurie Beetstra (Rowboat Dreams) — received a cheque from the CACR for $350.

City calls on artists

Meanwhile, the city is making a call for artists who want their work showcased at a Canada Line station as part of a temporary public art installation. Up until Oct. 7, artists can bid to

Annie Tsai (left) won in the painting category of the Midsummer Art exhibit, while Laurie Beetstra won for photography. Both received $350. have their work displayed as one of eight installations at the RichmondBrighouse station. Called “Art Plinth,” the city is describing the event as an opportunity for artists to experiment with “temporary interventions in the public realm.” The works will be installed on top of the last supporting column of the Canada Line at the station and will be on show for a minimum of six months to a maximum of 12.

Suggested budgets of $25,000 to $50,000 per project are available to the artist or artist team. Five to eight projects will be commissioned over a five-year period, with a total budget of $200,000 for all projects, all inclusive, with the first installation to be installed in the winter of 2014 and proceed through the fall of 2015.

Speed, mystery and a Search for Wondla Title: High Speed Thrills: Acceleration and Velocity Reviewed by: James Yu Age: 9 This book is about how James Yu rollercoasters and other amusement park rides are good for learning about acceleration and velocity, and all kinds of things used for calculating speed and distance. I like this book because it is a way to learn about some important measuring techniques while still being able to read and see fun, amazing and enormous amusement park thrill rides. I think this book is a great learning resource combined with interesting facts. I would recommend this book to everyone! Title: Calendar Mysteries: June Jam Reviewed by: Lara Rebeiro Age: 9 This book is about four children.

Your weekend arts guide The Historical Adventure of Bailey Brown on at Gateway Theatre, 6500 Gilbert Rd., this Friday, July 26. By Barbara Tomasic, the show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $10. Tickets available at www.gatewaytheatre. com or by calling 604270-1812.

Their names are Bradley, Brian, Nate and Lucy. They want to make homemade strawberry jam for their dads for Father’s Day. But the four kids discover that something strange is eating all the strawberries. I like this book because the mystery creature’s behaviour was Lara Rebeiro strange. To find out who the mystery creature is, the kids set lots of traps. The creature always struck when the kids were not looking. In the end, the kids find out who the mystery creature is and get to make strawberry jam for their dads! Read the book to find out more!

been outside her whole life, Eva has never met another human. One day, a merciless huntsman appears and destroys Eva’s underground Sanctuary. Eva and Muthr flee to the outside to discover much has changed, and that Besteel, the huntsman, is on their trail. This book is entertaining to read because of its spectacular view on the story of a future where Earth is in a state of hibernation. It turned out to be the perfect combination of fantasy, science fiction, and dystopia. Eva Nine’s intriguing Stephanie Chang and captivating adventure takes her on a journey to discover who she really is and if there are other humans out there, while on the run from a dangerous enemy. All she has is a single clue: a picture of a young girl, a human and a robot, along with the word “Wondla.”
