Members of the Cops For Cancer Tour de Coast team were given a rock star welcome by a throng of excited students at Diefenbaker Elementary School Wednesday afternoon. Among the parents watching the beaming faces of their children, Sylvia Balbuena had time for a special Watch smile of her the Cops for own. Her son, Cancer seven-yearteam old Mateo, arrive is a junior member of the Cops For Cancer team, an honour reserved for a young cancer survivor or patient undergoing treatment. For Mateo’s mother, the smile was in celebration of seeing him free of the disease for the past year. “He’s one year cancer-free, this week,” Sylvia said, adding she was overjoyed to have come through the past two years after getting the diagnosis her boy had a cancerous tumour that had located itself just behind his nasal passage. “It was blocking his air canal,” she said. The news of his diagnosis was shocking, as any parent might expect. But it came to light in a fortuitous way. “We were actually having him checked out for some hearing difficulties, and got an MRI. That’s when the doctor found part of the tumour.” Thanks to advances in cancer treatment, Mateo’s condition was treatable with radiation and a 10month course of chemotherapy. “He came through it all and recently had his first hair cut after a year,” Sylvia said. “He didn’t want to because of the chemo,

But now he’s all excited. And we have participated in all the things we can with the Canadian Cancer Society. It’s mostly been talking with other families going through the same thing we did and giving them some help with our experience.” Const. Dayne Cambell of the Vancouver Police Department, who led the Tour de Coast team to the school, said it is youngsters like Mateo that he and his colleagues ride for. “Cancer has also touched my family. I have two little girls and

I couldn’t imagine having to go through that with them,” he said. “But being welcomed by people wherever we go really helps us ride on.” The tour’s 24 riders — representing law enforcement, corrections and the BC Ambulance Service — are covering 900 kilometres including the Sea to Sky corridor, as well as the Sunshine Coast, North Shore and cities in Greater Vancouver from Sept. 18-26. For more information and to support the riders, visit copsforcancerbc.ca.

As a 30-year culture staple in Richmond, Gateway Theatre is now looking to evolve with the dynamic community it serves. In an unprecedented move, it presented a 15-year strategic plan to city council at Tuesday evening’s Parks, Recreation and Culture committee. Gateway 2028 plans to introduce inclusive and culturally diverse programming, divided into three phases, each spanning five years. “The vision speaks to theatres across Canada, where more than anything, sustainability is on everybody’s mind,” said Jovanni Sy, who took over the artistic director post from Simon Johnston in April, 2012. “We’re all concerned about the future of the theatre, so this strategy speaks to its longevity.” Sy sees the strategy not as a break from the past, but as an opportunity to build upon Johnston’s vision. The 15-year timeline will allow the company to implement each phase of the strategy without taking the public by surprise, explained Sy. Strongholds, such as the professional series, will remain, for example. “Wholesale change can be jarring for the public and for us as well,” said Sy. “Now just seemed like the time to do it. I’m new to my post, Suzanne (Haines) has also just taken over as general manager. It’s more feasible for us to do it in increments as well.”

MASSEY TUNNEL REPLACEMENT

New bridge not just about Vancouver-bound traffic Commuter traffic patterns have shifted, says project director

BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

A new bridge replacing the George Massey Tunnel will not merely shift the commuter bottleneck further along Highway 99 to the foot of the Oak Street Bridge. According to Geoff Freer, executive project director for

the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project, a new link over the South Arm of the Fraser River will better address commuter patterns that have shifted in the past decade or so. “What we’re finding today, and

this is really a change in the last 10 to 15 years, more than 60 per cent of the traffic using the tunnel today is travelling between Richmond, Delta, Surrey and the U.S. border,” said Freer, who has also guided development of the

South Fraser Perimeter Road, which is scheduled to be completed this December. He added the shift is due, in part, to the growth in jobs at YVR, and a general increase in see Traffic page 6

Route: Already has good public transit use Continued from page 5 economic activity in the immediate region encompassing Surrey, Richmond and Delta. “YVR has somewhere in the neighbourhood of 25,000 employees. If you look at the development in Richmond, the business parks, the port activity up the river, there has been a lot of changes.” The bridge project, announced last Friday by Premier Christy Clark, has come under fire from a host of political leaders in the region, especially Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie who was concerned a new span would just simply move one of the Lower Mainland’s worst choke points and not solve the daily commuter crush he feels could be addressed by better transit links. But the bridge project’s Freer said the route already has decent public transit ridership. “In the morning rush, for example, more than 50 per cent of those commuters going to Downtown Vancouver use transit already,” he said. “That’s a very high Scan to number. And overall, 26 join the per cent of the people discussion using the tunnel, use and tell us transit. what you “I think that’s in part think about due to the rapid bus lanes, a bridge queue-jumpers and probareplacing bly the Canada Line helps the Massey with that, too,” he added. Tunnel And look for a boost for public transit with a new bridge, Freer said. “We definitely will have a dedicated lane for transit. That’s what we do these days. That will be a big benefit, in terms of transit.” Overall, the new bridge is not strictly about addressing the Oak Street and Knight Street Bridges anymore, Freer said. “It’s really about how do we make improvements to help traffic using the tunnel, the majority of which is going between Richmond, Surrey, Delta, and the U.S. border,” he said. “That’s a change a lot of people don’t realize has happened. And we have been talking to municipal staff in Richmond and Delta over the past year and will continue to work with them in order to see what things need to be done along the corridor. We’re looking at the corridor itself, from the (Canada-U.S.) border, to Bridgeport Road, and where can we make improvements at the interchanges.” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie isn’t sold on the explanation, pointing to the current, chronic congestion during peak travel times at the Oak Street Bridge. “That lineup is the proof that’s in the pudding,” Brodie said. “And it’s not just a matter of building on-ramps and off-ramps to reduce congestion along that strip of highway.”

He leaves me to help out at the thrift store, my first task of the day, while he dashes home to have a new Internet connection installed. The thrift store often acts as a first point of contact with Pathways for the greater Richmond community. It raises awareness and funds for the clubhouse as people pass through browsing or donating. I sort through the shelves and watch as regulars come in, talking to Christine Chan, the member responsible for the store today. I’m glad she’s there to tell me where every-

thing goes. “It’s our goal that members will eventually not need us,” says MacDonald. In the meantime, Pathways tries to provide support for a variety of individuals from those who need access to resources or want the social support, to those who appreciate the daily interactions. “There are people who have more of a mild illness and can be caught in the middle,” says MacDonald, who has mild depression and anxiety himself. “We become more of a resource centre for them. Maybe they don’t need to become members, but we can connect them to support groups.” see Members page 11

Members: Find work and housing Continued from page 10 For someone like Tiffany Ellison, Pathways started out as a place to find temporary employment, and she then realized its support system was something she could benefit from. “It helped me deal with housing problems and in communicating with the ministry,” says Ellison, who now works part time as a receptionist, both at Pathways and at another business. “I needed this support because I couldn’t deal with it myself.” It’s something that many people not suffering from a mental illness don’t always understand. Talking to people at the clubhouse, it becomes clear that stigma is one of the major concerns occupying them. “There’s still huge stigma, especially with something like schizophrenia,” says Birch. “Sometimes, when people hear the word, they vanish. In the real world, if you tell someone you have it, that’s where the conversation stops. At Pathways, you don’t have to be identified by your illness, you can just be Johnny, not Johnny the schizophrenic.” As a manager of workplace initiatives at Canadian Mental Health Association’s B.C. branch, Julia Kaisla understands this stigma and is working with companies across the province to dispel it. One of the ways CMHA achieves this is through workshops on creating a socially supportive workplace and providing consulting on policy changes. “There is a lack of understanding that mental illness is an actual illness,” she says. “There’s this buck up mentality where people

say, they’re able to overcome things so why can’t you. It breeds senses of failure and weakness that ignore the internal fight people endure every day. There needs to be a culture shift; that hasn’t happened yet.” Sometimes Ellison, due to her bipolar disorder, can’t bring herself to go to work and interact with people. “I just can’t always deal with it,” she says. “So it’s always a challenge, but some days can be worse and in that case, I need a support system that can help.” Besides its support systems in finding employment and housing, Pathways also has a public education and outreach branch. Members go out in the community, such as to high schools and the RCMP detachment, sharing their stories and helping raise awareness. As MacDonald tells me about the program in his office, he gets a call from the kitchen. It’s Rob Milner, a five-year member, wanting MacDonald to pass on a message to me that the baking group will be starting in five minutes. I immediately join them in the kitchen to help out with my third, less stressful, and most enjoyable task. There are three others helping out today to make orange cake. “I like to do anything around the kitchen, especially baking,” says Milner, who will be joining Birch next month in St. Louis to present. “I learned all my skills here and I hope to be able to use them in other restaurants soon. It’s a great transition here. I found it easy to make friends. Things are going pretty well right now.”

“I’m not saying nothing has been done in the community, but it’s just not adequate.”

Tunnel vision for Massey

B

ack before May 14, most people thought the B.C. Liberals had as much chance of winning an election as they had of selling voters a non-existent bridge. Fast forward a few months, and Premier Christy Clark is back in the driver’s seat — somewhat literally, some would argue. That bridge is back as well, and the two combined in a recent piece of political theatre that Clark excels at when the premier announced plans to build a bridge to replace the Massey Tunnel. In terms of sheer political chutzpah, Clark has few rivals. Her “go big” announcements rarely lack audacity. Knowing that, it shouldn’t be surprising that her transportation leanings are less about studies and TransLink funding formulas and more about a big ol’ hunk of concrete, something that people in the vote-rich suburbs can get behind. It can certainly be argued there are more pressing, and indeed smarter ways for the province to spend its transportation dollars. Answers to questions about the cost of a bridge, funding sources and environmental issues were all missing from the announcement. Predictably, the NDP criticized the bridge sound bite as a premature substitution for planning or policy. Encouraging more car commuters is certainly not what many finer minds on transportation issues would advocate. But Clark is pointedly aware those finer minds aren’t the ones who voted for her at the ballot box. For Clark, the grand gesture of political showmanship will always trump the details. Even with a winning mandate, Clark remains the consummate campaigner, who never forgets what — and who — propelled her over the top.

CHOICE WORDS

Village streets came alive The Editor, Re: “Skies clear for Steveston’s biggest grand prix yet,” News, Sept. 25. Well, Mark Glavina of Phoenix Art Workshop did it again. He took the arts from the back of the bus and put it in the driver’s seat. The 4th Annual Grand Prix of Art spread itself around the streets of Steveston Sat. Sept. 21. Contrary to the weather forecast, the sun shone, bringing out the largest number of artists thus far. We had 85 artists draw their locations, get shuttled to their spots and when the Gulf of Georgia Cannery’s whistle blew, load their brushes. Three hours and many paint strokes later, they put down their brushes when the cannery whistle blew again at 1 p.m. Then it was back to Britannia Shipyards where their work was hung, judged and winners announced before the public filed through the gallery in the Chinese Bunkhouse. A lot of the art has been sold, but most of it will hang until Sunday. The Bunkhouse will be open noon until 5 p.m., except Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. It is a great opportunity to pick up an original piece of Steveston art! It took a mighty team of volunteers to pull off this amazing event and I would like to thank all the volunteers for a job so very well done! Mary Lou Rossiter Volunteer Coordinator Grand Prix of Art

Cities join ranks of the walking dead I love ghost towns. There’s something amazing about being the only human being walking through a vast and utterly empty, human-constructed realm. At least half the appeal of the zombie movie comes from the weird emptiness of the world. Whack a few shambling corpses over the head, and you can live anywhere you want! Dibs on the library! There have always been ghost towns. Every humaninhabited continent is dotted with the remains of towns that were abandoned, after the residents ran out of water, or food, or were turned into a decorative pile of skulls outside the front gates by a barbarian horde. The Black Death left many villages empty, as the few survivors just left. The 30 Years War in Europe was so vicious — today we’d see it as ethnic cleansing — that it left vast areas depopulated. There’s never been a better time than now to be a lover of ghost towns, because they’re making brand new ones. Traditionally, you get a ghost town like this: people move in, they set up a town, something goes catastrophically wrong (famine, pestilence, economic collapse, nuclear reactor meltdown, underground coal seam fire) and everybody leaves/drops dead. Now China and a few other countries are just building ghost towns from scratch.

Matthew Claxton PA I N F U L T RU T H

Ordos City is one of the most famous of these ghost cities. The actual ghost town is the new city — the old Ordos was a standard issue boom town. When China’s economy started heading skyward like an Atlas rocket, power plants needed coal. Inner Mongolia had lots of coal. Miners came, and Ordos grew and grew, and then planned for a massive, new town site that would put all its previous expansions to shame. And they overshot. There are a few people living in Ordos, but they amount to one or two families living in apartment blocks built for hundreds. China also has one of the contenders for the world’s largest mall (sorry West Edmonton), the New South China Mall. South China is where a lot of the factories that supply the west were built, and the mall is built just east of Guangzhou, one of the country’s largest cities. Yet from its opening in 2005, the mall had a 99 per cent vacancy rate for the next several years. The owner claims things have picked up recently, but there are reports that unfinished sections of the mall are now in danger of collapsing. Canada is no stranger to

this kind of building boom madness and resource-grabbing overshoot. One of the most famous examples in recent years is Kitsault, a scenic little town of about 2,400 people that existed for exactly three years and then was closed up. A company town, it was built for molybdenum miners and opened in 1980, on the extreme north coast of B.C. The mine owners didn’t want their workers to get dissatisfied and quit, so they included a mall, a community centre, a library, and a small hospital. Then the price of molybdenum crashed in 1982, and six months later everyone was gone. Kitsault has popped up in the news because the entire town was kept intact and maintained over the years, and it has come up for sale a few times. If Canada had a population of more than a billion, Kitsault and towns like it might have been built on the scale of Ordos City, rather than as a little village. China, and maybe Kitsault, should consider new industries for their empty towns. Tourists would probably pay good money to come and to take part in Mad Max or zombie apocalypse tourism. Get a few locals dressed as bikers or the walking dead, and you’ve got a brand new industry. Matthew Claxton is a reporter for the Langley Advance.

New Dentures

Greener solutions for Walmart

The Editor, Re: “Richmond Walmart hits buffer, again,” News, Sept. 18. Let’s talk benefits to Richmond. Current proposal: nothing to emphasize our “nature.” Solution: completely cover the roof with living grass, to reduce carbon footprint as well as reduce the heat associated with nongreen space construction, plus make for cleaner air overall.

Richmond City Hall has the power to demand this be in the final proposal. Please do so. This will also help in your letsTALKrichmond.ca plans. In fact, let’s require all buildings with a roof greater than a certain size to do this! This would help offset the lost green when you paved the Railway corridor.

I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks.

executive graced the occasion. The meeting, following a delicious vegetarian lunch hosted by the Gurdwara, was very amicable. The backlands, possibility of joint seniors’ long-term care facility as well as celebrating the religious diversity along the Highway to Heaven were some of the issues discussed. It was a very pleasant environment which spoke volumes of the spirit of co-operation between the City of Richmond and the diversity of religious institutions all along this unique special Wonder of Canada. Dialogues like this go a long way in bringing the community closer together. Balwant Sanghera Richmond

Calming Stress

NPN 80041855 Helps to promote healthy mood balance, relaxation, use as a sleep aid and mental stress. By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD. Truthful experience by people: � I am calm now in stressful situations! In the past 10 years I had a very short fuse, because my job is quite unpredictable. After I started Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 the difference was amazing. My reactions to stressful situations are totally changed. I also have more energy, too. I don’t yell at others. I have more patience and I am much happier as well. Thank you. Mary-Anne Thompson, 61, Lasalle, ON � I suffered greatly from anxiety. Standard treatments did not make me feel good. So my mother bought Bell Calming Chronic #66 Stress #66 and it has been helping me a lot. I am on my 3rd bottle. Remington Fletcher, 19, Ponty Pool, ON � I have a very high stress career in the film industry. There was no time for relaxation or meditation as you are on demand for 12-15 hours a day with no breaks. Since using Bell #66I am able to focus on the tasks at hand with more patience. Thank you for your help! Christina Ollson, 36, Burnaby, BC �It’s exactly one year since we began using Bell Calming Chronix Stress #66 for our two sons. Our local health food store recommended it. Both of our sons suffer from anxiety disorders. Our older son (14) was going through puberty and had become quite unmanageable, because he is much larger than I am. We are delighted with the immediate results. Our older son became his former sweet self and our younger son’s (12) anxiety is dramatically reduced. Thank you so much.

The Editor, Richmond is a great model of multiculturalism. This culturally diverse community is very proud of its intercultural harmony. Our No. 5 Road is home to more than 20 prominent places of worship. Some of the world’s top religions — Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism — are well represented on this Highway to Heaven. Its myriad of very impressive mosque, gurdwara, churches, temples, pagodas and religious schools is a true reflection of the Canadian Mosaic. This Highway to Heaven is a great attribute to Richmond’s respect for diverse cultures and faiths. To their credit, the City of Richmond, Richmond School District and

Business

Local firms now licensed to move BY PHILIP RAPHAEL

praphael@richmond-news.com

Have licence, will travel. The Richmond business community celebrated this week as local firms operating in numerous communities across the Lower Mainland were given the freedom to register for one business licence instead of one for each place they plunk down their tools for a job. Howard Harowitz, chair of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce’s policy and advocacy committee said the shift to a Mobile Licensing Program is a boon for businesses,

especially those in the trades. “In times gone by they, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and the like, have had to buy a business licence in every municipality they worked,” Harowitz said. “First of all, that’s a huge inconvenience and problem. If you’re a large organization you might be in numerous municipalities in the Lower Mainland. So that would mean pulling (registering) numerous different business licences.” And that adds up to a complex and expensive administrative hassle. It can also produce an uneven playing field as firms that play by the rules and go through all the hoops to

get a licence in each community can be at a disadvantage to those others who skirt the legalities. But a pilot project in the Okanagan which provided a licensing program spanning several communities showed an increase in compliance from businesses to get a licence. “And we’re very pleased to see endorsement from Richmond council,” Harowitz said. “It’s a huge win, not only for business, but for the municipalities. And, at the end of the day, that’s also good for customers because there will be more competition and a better flow of goods and services.”

ExploreVancouverIsland For those yearning for a weekend getaway, Vancouver Island is little more than 20 minutes by float plane, or a couple of hours (or less) by ferry. The Island is home to seven distinct regions, all with their own charm and appeal. Whether you long to head out for a cosmopolitan centre, a small town or a snug harbour, the Vancouver Island region has it all. For the outdoor enthusiast, there’s rugged oceanfront hiking trails, wilderness camping, big-wave surfing, mountain biking paths, wildlife watching expeditions, caving and kayaking trips that makes the Island a natural paradise. Yet, don’t be fooled by the Island’s other choice of activities – golf, museums, spectacular gardens, aquariums and government buildings – Vancouver Island is also a Mecca for those who want a variety of dining and shopping choices. Prepare yourself for a culinary adventure because the Island offers everything from international

fine dining to West coast cuisine, tempting seafood to culinary classics with an Island twist, and everything in between. Explore its great shopping with unique retail outlets selling local fashion, food, wine, crafts, art and much more. In the evening, head out for a night of fabulous live music, theatre or fine arts. Vancouver Island is a land of diversity and choices, and that includes the Island’s accommodations. There’s a home-away-fromhome that will satisfy every taste and budget. If your idea of an idyllic stay is a restorative one, the Island offers - myriad -resort lodgings, boutique hotels, major chain hotels, warm and inviting B&Bs and funky hostels. Best of all, because of the warm Pacific Ocean currents, Vancouver Island boasts one of the mildest climates in the country. Here you can ski or snowboard in the morning, have a late lunch at a beachside bistro and and play 18 holes of golf in the afternoon. There’s so much waiting for you in the Vancouver Island region in the fall and it’s all there waiting to be discovered: whether it’s storm watching from the open Pacific, a brisk walk in the cool morning air or retreating to a spa for a day of pampering. For more information about what to do and see on Vancouver Island, visit www.vancouverisland.travel.

A22 September 27, 2013 The Richmond News

Current Events –

a study, a license and a case So much seems to have been going on lately that, this month, I've been tempted to pass on a little more information than normal. The Study The Canadian Institute of Actuaries released a study in July that says we are now living so long that mortality tables (which actuaries use to measure how much money will be needed to pay current and future pensioners) are going to change. How long are we talking? Well, a 60-year-old man is now projected to live another 27.3 years. A 60-year-old woman is projected to live another 29.4 years. Most of the data used came from our CPP and the Quebec Pension Plan. The effects could be wide. For example, annuity payouts may soon change (read, be reduced) because, if people are going to live longer, annuity payouts will have to adjust accordingly. I recommend that anyone looking to purchase an annuity get some financial advice as soon as you can. There is now a lot to consider. The License The Federal Government has issued a license to the Standard Life Assurance Company of Canada to administer a Federal Pooled Registered Pension Plan (known as the “PRPP”). Our government created the PRPP in 2012 to help Canadians, especially those working in small- to medium-sized companies that don’t tend to offer workplace pensions. As with our CPP, the employer and the employee pay into it regularly. Once people retire, they will receive what is called a supplementary pension based on several factors, including how long they paid into the plan. Each province wishing to adopt the plan requires enabling legislation. However, only four provinces (Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec) are right now on their way to adopting the legislation. The PRPP is an important initiative, especially if we’re living longer! The Case Last week, the Supreme Court of B.C. released reasons for judgment for the Wills Variation case Eckford v. Vanderwood and others. In it, a common law spouse sought variation of the Will of the Testator, who died in tragic circumstances in 2010. Their relationship had lasted four years. The deceased was survived by two children and his mother (and, before he died, he had been helping his mother pay her own expenses). The Plaintiff had known the deceased in high school, but they went their separate ways until their marriages both ended, and then started a new relationship. The Plaintiff left her job and moved cities to live with the deceased. She paid for a half interest in a house they purchased together, which was ultimately registered as a joint tenancy. In the Will, the Estate was distributed to the mother (who was bequeathed 20%) and the two children (each of whom was bequeathed 40%). Aside from the house, the Estate was not large. The claims of the mother and the two surviving children were significant. The deceased’s mother, who was fairly elderly and could not work, needed the financial assistance. One of the two children, an adult son, lived and worked in Montreal but did not earn well, and had no savings. The daughter, also an adult, is a student with some student loans and other debt, and needed the Estate bequest as well. Meanwhile, the Plaintiff did have work at the time of her spouse’s death but has since suffered some illnesses, rendering her unable to work. However, the Court found that since the Plaintiff received the deceased’s interest in the house (by right of survivorship), and it was the most valuable asset the Plaintiff owned, the distribution of the Estate was fair. The Court therefore did not vary the Will. The Court also held that the Plaintiff was not entitled to her costs, but although she was unsuccessful, she did not have to pay the costs of the defendants. The Estate was ordered to pay those costs. The Plaintiff had argued that she should receive costs from the Estate because she was disinherited, and so the Will in essence “invited” the litigation, but the Court disagreed. Summary There is no necessary connection between the three parts of this column, except for the importance of planning. It is significant that there is now discussion in the media about the many implications of our living longer. These issues need to be addressed, but it’s only starting now. The Eckford case illustrates how an apparent lack of planning has affected the Plaintiff. Consider that the Plaintiff left a good job to live with the deceased. It does not appear from the case reasons that there was a Co-Habitation Agreement or any other financial planning, except that the couple had an account that they used to pay common expenses. Notably, after the Trial, the Plaintiff had to sell the house to pay debts and is living elsewhere. Though we of course don’t know when we might pass, the tragedy of loss is often amplified for the survivors when the deceased has done little or no financial or Estate planning.

Duo opens organic farm Sweet Digz to be part of final Steveston market days Sweet Digz, a new Steveston-based farm, will partner with Nirvana Organic Foods to host two Saturday Farmer’s Markets on Sept. 28 and Oct. 12 to celebrate the arrival of the new organic farm here in Richmond. Kareno Hawbolt and her partner Kimi Hendess are leasing four acres on the edge of Steveston on which they plan to grow organic vegetables, local organic seed, and medicinal herbs. “We’re excited to be farming here, to be learning from long-time local farmers, and to be part of Richmond’s strong agricultural community,” said Hawbolt, who was born and raised in Richmond and had been farming for 10 years on Vancouver Island before moving back to her hometown in 2010. Since then she has served as farm manager at The Sharing Farm, a non-profit society that grows food for the Richmond Food Bank. Pam Tay, who runs Nirvana Organic Foods at the corner of Dyke Road and No.2 Road, said she is pleased to see more local food being grown, and to support a local farm, especially one that will grow organically. “I grew up on a farm so I really value healthy food and supporting local farm businesses,” Tay said. “I always encourage people to eat healthy.” “When Pam suggested we have our Saturday fall markets at Nirvana, we were overjoyed,” Hendess said. “It’s a great way

The markets at Nirvana will run from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Sept. 28 and Oct. 12, rain or shine.

The Beatles kicked off November 1963 with their Royal variety performance in the presence of the Queen, Prince Philip, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon at the London Palladium. This night John Lennon was to announced to the crowd, “For those of you in the cheap seats clap your hands to this one: the rest of you can rattle your jewelry,” and then launched into Twist & Shout and Beatlemania had arrived in Britain The Beatles went off on a tour of England and was met by large crowds of young women screaming and fainting at the very glimpse of the mop tops and most of these shows on this tour were held in cinemas as the boys crisscrossed the country for the month, getting 300 pounds a night and not being able to hear a thing they were

playing! The single She Loves You had been No. 1 on the UK charts and would be followed by I Wanna Hold Your Hand in late November ’63, selling a million copies before release. On Nov. 22 the Beatles’ second album With the Beatles was released with its distinctive black and white half shadow cover and haircuts. I remember the girl who lived across the road, Linda, coming over to my house with the record and hearing it for the first time. It sounded so fresh and tight, full of atmosphere, and the band delivered a masterpiece with Ringo supplying the back beat for the boys to do their chunky rhythm and sing their hearts out! No songs were released as singles in England off this LP, but all of the songs are well crafted and are super good. With the Beatles was the follow-up to the Please Please Me LP, which was recorded in one day. With the Beatles had more time spent on it and is well recorded by George Martin and the Beatles sparkle and rock with great playing and harmonies from beginning to end with a few covers, lots of original Lennon and McCartney songs and the first George Harrison composition. It Won’t Be Long starts things off with John on lead vocal and plenty of harmo-

The Beatles second album came with a distinctive black and white cover.

Scan for a video of the Beatles nies then slows with All I’ve Got To Do followed by Paul singing All My Loving brilliantly. Next up is George with his own song, singing Don’t Bother Me. Then we have the rocker Little Child with Paul on piano and Lennon with a great vocal performance. Paul takes the lead on the sweet ballad Till There Was You. Please Mr Postman ends the side with John delivering again a great vocal performance on this Motown classic by the Marvelettes. George takes the mike on Side Two with a steam rolling version of Chuck Berry’s Roll Over Beethoven and Hold Me Tight rocks along with Paul’s vocal and the boys full of energy. Smokey Robinson’s You Really Got A Hold On Me is my personal fave and features George Martin on piano. Next along is I Wanna Be Your Man with Ringo taking vocals and

this song would give the Rolling Stones their first big hit in the UK! Next is a great song Devil In Her Heart which is a Beatle cover of a group called The Donays which would have probably been forgotten if not recorded by the Beatles. The last Lennon and McCartney song on the album is Not A Second Time with John on vocal and to finish the album another Motown hit Please Mr. Postman which gave John a chance to show us his raw vocal power one more time. The world would soon change as the Beatles went on to conquer the globe and like the two world wars the Yanks were late to the party! Will we ever see the likes again!

Canadians host Cougars in showcase weekend

The B.C. Major Midget Hockey League will be on full display at the Richmond Olympic Oval this weekend, including the host team looking to continue its winning ways. B.C. Hockey’s premier league for 15-to-17-year-olds is staging a showcase weekend with nine games on tap at the Oval, including a pair featuring the Greater Vancouver Canadians taking on the Cariboo Cougars. The teams will meet at 11:45 a.m. on Saturday and on Sunday at 8:30 a.m. before the Cougars make the long trip back to Prince George. After an unbeaten pre-season, the Canadians continued their momentum in league play by sweeping the South Island Royals last weekend in Victoria. The opener saw Greater Vancouver erupt for four unanswered goals en route to a 5-3 victory. The Royals made things interesting with a pair of late tallies, before Nathan McCarnan sealed the win with 27 seconds remaining. Sean Gillespie, Kyle Uy, Braeden Gurney and Ryan Jones had the other goals. Dane Hannoun chipped in with three assists while Owen Seidel and Cameron Ginnetti had two each. The series finale was highlighted by the Canadians scoring six times in the second period in a wild 7-5 win. South Island enjoyed a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes when a pair from Jordan Deyremenjian and another from Gurney gave the visitors a 3-1 advantage four minutes into the middle stanza. More goals followed from Gunner Wegleitner, Blake Hayward and McCarnan, before Ryan Wilkinson closed out the scoring with three minutes remaining. Gary Dhaliwal had a pair of assists. Icing.... The league showcase weekend features four other games on Saturday, starting at 9 a.m. and three more on Sunday, following the Canadians/Cougars tilt.
