Bunny boom on its way

Nothing is ever a problem. Until it’s a problem, right? If you listen to a growing number of Richmond residents, strata councils and the numerous animal rescues, the rabbit population in the city is on the verge of exploding again, if it hasn’t already.

5

If, instead, you lend your ear to the City of Richmond, it will, for the most part, tell you that it’s keeping an eye on the situation, although its hands are tied by the Wildlife Act. It also, apparently, doesn’t have the resources to trap and house rabbits. The “rabbit people,” for want of a better collective, are sounding the warning siren, saying that all the signs are there for a crisis: Daily reports of rabbit families multiplying every few weeks; strata councils crying foul over damaged property; and the peak of a 10-year rabbit population boom cycle upon us. Despite the recent outbreak of rabbit hemorrhage disease (RHD) which wiped out many rabbits, the rabbit people claim the creatures have bounced back and are numbering in the several thousand across Richmond and are starting to cause mayhem by munching through people’s properties and leaving thousands of little “presents” behind them.

28

I’ll be honest, I haven’t gone out and counted them.

41

20

But when a busy mother-of-two is compelled to turn her backyard into a pseudo rabbit sanctuary and adoption agency and is forced to approach her strata council for financial help, it tells me there is a problem. Aime Nowak (feature on page 30) couldn’t turn to the city’s contracted animal shelter, and local rabbit rescues are at the breaking point. So where does she go? Some may contend she should just let the 10-strong family she’s adopted go out onto the west dyke and let nature (coyotes, eagles, owls, raccoons) take its course. Trouble is, “nature” taking its course in the rabbit world produces more of the furry friends than the coyotes and eagles can eat. It is, after all, what rabbits do. If Richmond residents, their strata councils and businesses are having to take the “law” into their own hands to keep a lid on the population, then, again, it’s safe to assume there is a problem. And, as the rabbit people point out, it’s all well and good for private property owners to conduct their own spaying and neutering program, but the rabbits on city property don’t get those memos and, thus, the cycle repeats. According to the founder of rabbit rescue Rabbitats, creating a city-run sanctuary, complete with spaying and neutering, is the obvious answer. And, despite being a lover of the animal, she said she wouldn’t even lobby against a rabbit cull right now, if it came to that.

36

Although it might not be a priority at this time for the city, it seems quite clear that something needs to happen. It’s just a matter of when and how many times the bunnies reproduce before we get there.

How should the city cope with a potential “bunny crisis?”

Patricia Revill

George Szor

CAREGIVER

I think they will have to cull them just to cut down. What are you gonna do? I know that it goes against sort of being sympathetic. But if there are too many and they are taking over, you gotta do something about it, right?

Andrew Hawkes

FOOD DISTRIBUTION

I like rabbits. Instead of culling them, I think the city should be taking care of them, maybe giving them to the SPCA or something. Or relocate them; take them to Maple Ridge or Mission, somewhere in the forest out there.

Maybe shift them off to other centres in the Lower Mainland or beyond. We got two bunnies from friends who have a farm and accidently had a male and a female and now they have lots of bunnies. We had a male and a female and we are going back to two females.

LETTERS

Firehall worth it Dear Editor, Re: “City must rein in spending,” Letters, June 7. A recent letter to the editor provides a timely opportunity to remind Richmond residents why it has been necessary to replace and upgrade our fire halls including the Brighouse No.1 Fire Hall. Given the importance of ensuring the current and future safety of residents and property throughout the city, these investments will play a prominent role. With the opening of the Brighouse No.1 Fire Hall later this month, city council’s ambitious program to bring all our public safety buildings up to modern standards is complete. In addition to providing a new home for Richmond RCMP, since 2001 we’ve built five new fire halls and undertaken a major retrofit of a sixth. Some of the buildings replaced were more than 50 years old and obviously inadequate to meet the present or future demands of our growing community. Design and construction of the new Brighouse No.1 Fire Hall cost $24.4 million. For decades to come, it will serve both as the city centre’s primary fire hall and pro-

vide a home for Richmond Fire-Rescue’s administration offices among other core public safety services. Being built to post-disaster standards, each fire hall can now survive a major seismic event, thus ensuring effective response when fire crews are most needed. Other improvements will enable them to meet modern health and safety standards for staff in addition to containing many features that will enhance efficiency and response times. The construction also meets the city’s commitment to sustainable building practices as the new buildings are designed and constructed to achieve LEED Gold certification, among the highest measures of environmentally-sensitive building practises. Through careful management of spending and reserves, this building program was accomplished with minimal impact on property taxes or civic borrowing. The dollars invested in each new safety building, including the Brighouse No.1 Fire Hall, have been carefully managed and will serve to make Richmond a safer community.

Malcolm D. Brodie, Mayor RICHMOND

Design divides readers Dear Editor, I read Mr. Wagtail’s letter about Richmond Fire Hall No.1 just hours after having looked closely at the building. Unlike Mr. Wagtail, I found it appealing. The architecture seems appropriate, in both design and materials, to a fire hall — solid and serious, with sober lines and colours. I can’t detect any “fancy architectural finishings,” nor do I think it

“rivals in design some of the most prestigious downtown sky scrapers.” In fact, there’s nothing sky-scraperish about it. I think it’s one of the most attractive civic buildings in Richmond today. It stands out, especially when compared to the local domestic architecture — the depressing glass highrises and ridiculous monster mansions.

Dear Editor, I’d like to thank Mr. Wagtail for his letter last week regarding the new Brighouse Fire Hall on Gilbert Road. It does look a little over the top, but with all the property tax they’re about to rake in, I guess they/we can afford it. Thanks to the new condos and farm mansions, I’ll bet the inside is just as suave — but for $22.5 million, you’d expect so. And it’s located close to the future modular housing complex, that will be convenient!

On Seniors and poverty The City of Richmond invites the public to an open house for our Dike Raising project along the South Arm of Fraser River between Gilbert Road and No. 3 Road.

Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. South end of Gilbert Road at Dyke Road (gravel parking lot) This is a drop-in style open house which will provide information on upcoming dike, road and drainage construction. Staff will be available to answer questions and provide project details. For more information on this event, call the City’s Engineering Department at 604-276-4289.

CBC News reported earlier this week that B.C. has the highest poverty rate in Canada among seniors. Last year, when governments across the country approved the major revisions to the Canada Pension Plan, no improvements were made to Plan rates for existing seniors. I don’t know why (and I certainly raised the issue in this newspaper). Richmond seniors’ poverty rates are apparently particularly high. To add to an already difficult situation, CBC reported, loneliness is at epidemic levels among Canadian seniors. It’s a serious problem, partly because loneliness can aggravate existing health problems, and because seniors populations across Canada are increasing. I think it’s a mistake that the CPP was not increased for existing seniors, especially single ones who don’t have a second income to rely on. Governments across the country, both provincial and federal, need to intensify their efforts to find workable solutions to a growing problem that doesn’t get enough attention. Visit our website (www.WillPowerLaw.com) or call us at (604)233-7001 to discuss your Wills, Estates and Seniors’ questions.

LETTERS Democracy vs. ethnicity Dear Editor, Everything Hong Guo says and stands for is not only anithetical to the principles of a tolerant, inclusive, and respectful multi-cultural society, but also reveals a total disrespect for what our system of democracy is supposed to uphold. When political candidates propose that voters put them into positions of public responsibility on the basis of race, ethnicity, and/or religious affiliation, rather than knowledge, intelligence, altruistic principles, and actual qualification for office, then we know we are crossing into territory that has little to do with the principles of democracy and more to do with biased hegemony and the wholesale promotion of distrust and divisiveness. Our leaders should govern for everyone — a guiding principle that Ms. Guo is apparently not supportive of.

I can only hope that there are enough Canadian-Chinese voters in Richmond who do not agree with or respect Hang Guo’s aspirations to gain prominance and power through the fermentation of racially-based divisiveness in an already challenged community. If we want to see an example of what such strategies lead to, just look at what is happening to the U.S. because of Donald trump’s strategy of insult, divide, and conquer. A representation of democratic princples or a race-determined platform for the promulgation of a divided hegemonic society? That’s the choice Guo is offering us citizens.

Ray Arnold RICHMOND

Build bridges not walls Dear Editor, I’m so sad to read Ms. Guo’s perception of the Chinese experience in adjusting to life in Richmond. I’m even more sad to see she would like to find like-minded Chinese people who would support her bid for mayor so she can strengthen the voice of her ethnic group. As I read her reasons for becoming a candidate, I was reminded of my family’s immigration experiences. Immigration is hard. Learning a new language is hard. Sometimes we feel stupid and our children may adapt faster than adults can. It takes courage to make connections with people on your street that came from other backgrounds. But that is Canada. Only the indigenous peoples can claim ownership. We have all come from somewhere and many have committed to working together and finding common ground for our children and our children’s children. Adapting is hard, but a smile and open heart goes a long way in this country. It worked for my family. Be brave, Ms. Guo. Building bridges is more Canadian than building walls. Ask your children. They have already done it.

It’s interesting that you can hear a pin drop as a drug dealer/suspect is on the loose and drug overdoses are taking place right up the road from the recently and vehemently opposed modular housing site. Where is the group that, just weeks ago, rallied together by the numbers “for the safety of the children and elderly”? They’ve disappeared? How is it that, with the modular site now decided upon, the interest has suddenly waned and concern has dissipated? The issues of drug abuse are clearly still present with this activity taking place just up the road (likely in a luxury apartment where property value is a big concern). So why is this group not interested now, as they previously have been? If you truly care about the community and the children, let’s see your actions continue as you help address the issue and ensure

that the unit next door doesn’t house some of those people you are reportedly so fearful of. Homeless drug addicts are no different than the ones fortunate enough to have addresses and drug activity is in the news. So where are you now? The silence is deafening and hints at the fact that the real concern all along was likely more about preserving self interest and property values than the “safety of the neighbourhood.” How quickly we forget and move on, despite the fact drug abuse is an ongoing concern and doesn’t end with a modular site. I’m just glad that the housing will provide a small step in battling addiction despite the fact those previously “concerned citizens” have now seemingly taken a vacation.

Put brakes on speeders Dear Editor, Being a pedestrian in central Richmond can be extremely risky — day or night. The running of stop-signs and right-turning vehicles failing-to-stop-on-red is endemic and dangerous. I’m talking about drivers in central Richmond wilfully disregarding stop signs to proceed straight at 40 km/h and attacking right turns at stops signs or red lights at 20 km/h. On Wednesday afternoon May 16 an elderly frail person completing a stroll along the Fraser River pathway from the Olympic Oval to Aberdeen Station was nearly hit at the 3-way Stop of Cambie Road and River

Road by the driver of a large, Germanmade SUV, which had no intention of stopping at a stop sign. Focussing on the immediate future, here are some options: — Repaint the stop lines/crosswalk lines. — Install pedestrian-activated flashing amber to cross River Road at Cambie Road to increase the yield-to-pedestrian rate. — Increase RCMP enforcement.

Alleged money launderer found living at River Rock Multi-agency team arrested ChineseAustralian amid $855 million probe Alan Campbell RICHMOND NEWS

A man accused of laundering more than $800 million through Australian casinos has been arrested at the River Rock Casino and Resort in Richmond. According to the RCMP, Dan Bui Shun Jin had being living temporarily at the River Rock when he was arrested May 25 by a team made up of the RCMP, Canada Border Services, BCLC security and supported by River Rock Casino’s surveillance. At the time of Jin’s arrest, he was found with more than $75,000 in his possession. Yesterday, Jin was ordered to be deported and will remain in custody for the time being. However, it’s unclear where he will be reported to, as he is in custody for a U.S. warrant and, according to authorities, has dual Chinese-Australian citizenship. Authorities say Jin is an alleged “high roller” in casinos around the globe and is accused of laundering more than $855 million through Australian casinos alone and there are also active investigations into his activities in Australia, the U.S., Macau and Singapore. The U.S. had previously issued an arrest warrant for Jin due to an alleged fraud in Nevada worth $1.4 million.

According to the RCMP, during a search of Jin’s hotel room at the River Rock, investigators found documents that detailed a recent alleged laundering effort through YVR. The alleged scheme involved a female money courier who was told to pick up $25,000 from a man in a Las Vegas parking lot and bring it to Jin in Richmond. However, Canadian Border Services officers apparently pulled the woman aside once she arrived at YVR and officers found the money.

Almost 300 aero tech jobs lost to MB Alan Campbell RICHMOND NEWS

Almost 300 workers at a Richmond aerospace facility face losing their jobs, unless they relocate to Winnipeg or Prince Edward Island (PEI).

The highly-skilled positions at StandardAero — an Arizona-based firm, which took over Vector Aerospace’s helicopter engine services at YVR’s South Terminal late last year — will be phased out over the next year or so. StandardAero is in the process of winding down its Richmond operation and moving the majority of it to Winnipeg and PEI as part of a “restructuring program.” Some of the workers have more than 30 years’ service with the company, which has changed hands several times over the decades. Spokesman for the company Kyle Hultquist said its “goal is to help all of these employee obtain jobs at either StandardAero location or other companies.” Hultquist added that StandardAero “made the difficult decision to wind down operations at the Richmond facility over the next 12-18 months.

“During this time, we will transfer our dynamic components work from Richmond to the company’s Langley facility and we will transition our Richmond helicopter engine MRO and LRU capabilities to StandardAero’s facilities in Winnipeg. “For the next four to five months, operations will continue as usual. At the end of that time, we will begin the movement of the work and we anticipate that the transition will continue into 2019.” Hultquist said that employees impacted by the closure will be eligible for a variety of company-funded redeployment, outplacement and transition services. He added the company anticipates “several waves of employee exits beginning in the fourth quarter of this year and through the end of the transition process.” One of StandardAero’s six Winnipeg plants is in the process of being retrofitted to take on helicopter work that had been done in Richmond. According to its website, StandardAero has “become one of the world aerospace industry’s largest independent maintenance, repair and overhaul providers.” StandardAero has operations around the world.

Fire at BC Housing complex displaces 10 Alyse Kotyk RICHMOND NEWS

On Monday night, a fire tore through a BC Housing-run unit displacing three adults and seven children. Richmond-Fire Rescue was called to Rosewood Village on No. 2 Road near Blundell Road around 8 p.m. Fire crews quickly extinguished the fire and damage was limited to the unit where the fire originated and to the outside of a neighbouring unit. There were no injuries or casualties. To help those living in the units, Emergency Social Services was called to arrange for accommodation for two adults and two children from one of the units. The other displaced residents found their own housing. One Rosewood Village resident, Nathalie Pope, told the Richmond News that the complex is “a tough neighbourhood.” Pope lives across the parking lot from the unit that burned and said she hasn’t seen a fire inside a unit like this one since she moved into the complex in 2009.

Fire damage at Rosewood Village. Photo by Nathalie Pope “BC Housing is already doing yearly smoke detector inspections,” Pope said, referring to how the housing organization could help the neighbourhood. “People are careless on their own, so the law should be involved, I would think.” The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

SOGI reviewed After months of gathering feedback, Richmond’s Board of Education is reviewing the public’s responses to a draft sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) policy in anticipation of its approval on June 27.

The policy — initially championed by trustee Sandra Nixon — aims to inform and educate staff, students and parents about the special circumstances and discrimination against LGBTQ students. The policy not only has a zero-tolerance attitude against discrimination and bullying, but also seeks to help schools be more accepting of students’ sexual orientation and gender identity. According to the school

board, nearly 1,000 individual responses were received from the public. Many were opposed to the policy as a whole, while others sought specific changes to the draft.

More than 200 signed copies of a form were submitted, stating school staff should request parental consent to discuss sexual orientation, notify students of any LGBTQ celebrations or genderneutral activities, not penalize students who opt out of these activities and “delete the policy which states teachers should sponsor ‘Gay/ Straight Clubs or Alliances.’” Others, however, supported the policy, saying it was “overdue.”

Temple breaks ground and a complex similar in size to the current temple for a Buddhism education centre, according to nun Lotus Sie.

Daisy Xiong RICHMOND NEWS

Lingyen Mountain Temple, a Buddhist place of worship on No.5 Road, will be expanded to about triple its current size, allowing for more functions, including a Buddhism education centre. The ground-breaking ceremony took place last week on the site, when masters from Taiwan held a purification rite. MLAs John Yap, Linda Reid and Teresa Wat and Couns. Bill McNulty and Derek Dang attended the event. The project, approved by Richmond city council in 2016, includes the construction of a new Main Buddha Hall,

“As the number of visitors and nuns increases over the years, we need more space to serve the temple’s functions including retreats, big events, residences for nuns, education and dining,” said Sie to the Richmond News. The planned new Main Buddha Hall will take up 12,400 sq. ft. with three levels, including a ground level used for parking and a dining hall. The rest of the new temple will serve as a residential area and as an education centre for children and young people to learn about Buddhism, Sie added. The new temple, once built, is expected to house 60 resident nuns and up to

City of Richmond

70 retreat participants — members of the public who study and meditate for two to 10 days. It will also have 385 parking spaces. The expansion plan has caused controversy in the neighbourhood since it was proposed more than a decade ago. Most concerns were about the height of new buildings and maintaining the agricultural land on the site.

The project was finally settled after the temple agreed to have the height set at 27.5 metres and not to have the building encroach on farmland on the site. As for farming the land, the temple will provide a bond of $186,000 to the city to ensure a farming strategy is carried out, which involves fruit tree retention and berry production.

Mom skips on neonatal bill Graeme Wood RICHMOND NEWS

Vancouver Coastal Health has filed a civil claim worth over one million dollars (and counting) against a foreign national who skipped the bill at Richmond Hospital after giving birth in 2012. Yan Xia has been served a notice of civil claim after not paying her $312,595 bill from October 2012, after Richmond Hospital staff helped her with maternity care and her newborn child with neonatal care following complications in the spring of 2012. The claim filed in April at B.C. Supreme Court notes the bill accrues monthly interest of two per cent, if left unpaid. After 67 months, the defendant Xia would now owe about $1.2 million.

“In breach of the Agreement (with the hospital’s rate schedule), the defendant has not paid the Amount Owing nor any portion thereof,” notes the claim, filed on behalf of Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) by lawyer David Georgetti, of Vertlieb and Co. It is unclear where Xia is at the moment. Richmond Hospital is home to a booming birth tourism industry that, while technically legal, operates in a grey zone and is seen by many as an affront to the immigration system and exploitative of Canada’s healthcare system. Mostly Chinese nationals are coming to the region, and more specifically Richmond, to give birth. Because Canada has jus soli (citizenship on soil) rights, the newborn babies get Canadian citizenship automatically, and with it all the benefits of Canada’s social safety net should they choose to live here. VCH has stated in the past that payment rates from foreign nationals have been high. In cases where payment is not made, health officials make clear that they cannot deny healthcare services to those in need. As of 2016, the hospital asks non-residents to pay a $7,500 deposit for a regular birth

and $13,000 for a C-section birth. There appears to be no security obtained for the rare instance a baby/mother is admitted for expensive neonatal/post-maternity care. According to the B.C. Ministry of Health, although the baby is automatically a citizen, it is not yet a resident of B.C. and, as such, does not qualify for public health insurance. Notably, new (and returning) permanent residents are required to complete a wait period of three months to qualify for Medical Services Plan (MSP). However, MSP covers the care of a beneficiary’s newborn baby. Without MSP, Xia would have had to obtain private insurance for her unborn child to have neonatal care covered. The News understands from sources at the hospital that many transactions are cash. It is unclear if the hospital checked if Xia had insurance. In Vancouver, B.C. Women’s Hospital officials bar foreigners from registering to give birth at their hospital. Meanwhile, Richmond has a registration process open to foreigners. According to VCH, in the 2016-2017 fiscal year, there were 379 births to foreign nationals at Richmond Hospital. That’s about one in six moms (17.4 per cent) entering the maternity ward who are not Canadian residents. However in the first half of 2017-2018 (to September 2017) foreign nationals accounted for 19.9 per cent of all births in Richmond. The News has asked VCH for the final 2017-2018 figures. In 2015-2016 there were 299 births and in 2014-2015 there were 335. From 2004 to 2010 the hospital helped birth, on average, 18 new Canadians per year from non-resident mothers. Nationality isn’t routinely tracked but a tabulation by hospital officials in 2016 showed Chinese nationals accounting for 98 per cent of such births. An online Parliamentary petition (E-1527) is asking the federal government to condemn, investigate and prevent birth tourism.

Farms help protect the Mighty Fraser Daisy Xiong RICHMOND NEWS

A documentary filmmaker is exploring the symbiotic relationship between local farmland and the Fraser River Estuary’s wildlife in her newest film. The documentary, called The Watershed Guardians, aired in Richmond last week, embarks on a journey to meet with people who study and defend the Fraser River. Director Jocelyn Demers told the Richmond News one effective way to protect Fraser River habitats that are at risk is to maintain farmland used to grow agriproducts in the city. “If there are enough farms producing food in Richmond — in the best situation they are not using any chemicals — they will provide a buffer zone for wild animals living in the Fraser River,” said Demers. He takes birds as an example, who like to go to the buffer zones between fields. “If you replace those farms with a new neighbourhood or a new industrial area, we will lose those habitats, while we are losing farm products,” he added. Demers pointed out that mass construction on farmland has also damaged ditches and waterways connecting farms to Fraser River. “In the past, the system was letting some water from the river go to ditches. Farmers were using ditches to water their farms,” said Demers.

“Now, on one side, you have the farms; on the other side, you have condos — they destroy the ditch system. The ditches are still there but there is no water in them for farmers.” As a result, some farmers have to pay residential prices for tap water to irrigate their farms, instead of getting free water from the Fraser River, said Demers, adding this is a big additional cost, especially for small farms. “We need to re-establish the ditches,” he said. “We talk more and more about the importance of local food, organic food, but we have to take the right measures to make sure it will happen.” Demers said the Fraser estuary has depreciated around 80 to 85 per cent over the years, partly due to overdevelopment or development that doesn’t respect nature. “Many small estuaries that were once connected to the Fraser are not going to the Fraser anymore, destroying local wildlife habitats,” he said. The documentary outlined the locations of around 500 Fraser River doors and pumps, which, according to Demers, are like shredding machines, killing the fish that try to go through to get back to their streams. Meanwhile, birds are also under threat as many migration routes are in danger, including the Pacific Flyway, a major north-south flyway for migratory birds in America, extending from Alaska to Patagonia.

Students CONNECT to NEIGHBOURS Longtime resident Bev Dickinson was delighted to have Thompson elementary Kindergarten and Grade 1 students visit her home nearby Terra Nova as part of a neighbourhood outreach campaign. Dickinson raised children who attended Thompson, however she had lost touch with the school over the years and was touched by the special card and homemade cookies delivered by the students. [photo

By Graeme Wood Students in three combined Kindergarten-Grade 1 classes at James Thompson elementary are making new friends not just outside their classroom walls, but beyond their school playground. Just over 60 students circled their northwest Richmond neighbourhood one day last month to hand out cookies and caring messages to any neighbour who opened their front door. Teachers Denise Vargas Cruz, Tanya Rose and Danielle Ginet teamed up to show students the importance of community connections. After the local field trip concluded, students, parents and teachers were happy to have forged a special, new relationship with nearby senior resident Bev Dickinson, said Rose. Initially, Dickinson did not answer the door but persistence paid off and the children learned that she had raised children who attended Thompson three decades ago. And for the longest time, Dickinson had lost her connections to the neighbourhood school, said Rose. Then, “she came to school one week later to visit. She was very teary when she came in. She said it warmed her heart to have the children visit her,” added Rose. Vargas Cruz said much of the inspiration for the project came from the notion that many people are lonely.

“This was really about learning about being a caring and kind neighbour,” said Vargas Cruz. Ginet said the project fit into the new curriculum by fostering a “growth mindset” and promoting an understanding of others as well as empathy in a tangible way. “We explained it like a ripple effect. Can our kindness ripple out into the community and show that we have neighbours? “I think the kids really understood their

actions can have an impact,” said Ginet, who said fewer face-to-face connections is not just a problem in Richmond, but across North America. “I think it’s just a changing world. Kids are experiencing things differently. Everyone seems to be a lot more disconnected, so we wanted to break that down,” said Ginet. According to Vancouver Coastal Health, if there was one focus to improve community health in Richmond, it would be

to improve community connectivity and to lower social isolation. Vargas Cruz and Rose said initially many people were surprised that they were receiving free cookies. If someone did not answer, the packages were left at the door. Thompson elementary is situated southeast of Westminster Highway and No. 1 Road, near Gibbons Park in a detached home neighbourhood.

A message from the chairperson On behalf of the Richmond Board of Education, I am proud to present our latest edition of EdCom to our students, parents and community. These stories are about our District and about the dedicated people that make a difference each day. The rich learning environments that surround our students would not be possible without dedicated administrators, teachers, staff, parents and volunteers. EdCom is a valuable platform on which we can deliver stories about success, perseverance, dedication and teamwork while providing an opportunity for our schools, staff and students to share and celebrate their accomplishments. Countless hours are committed behind the scenes to accomplish so much and often times this dedication goes unrecognized. I am excited that we have the opportunity to shine a spotlight on a few of these individuals and recognize them for their great work. It is essential to note that EdCom is produced at no cost to the Richmond School District and the commercial advertising in this publication does not imply endorsement by our District. I hope that you enjoy reading these stories as much as I did. Eric Yung Chairperson, Richmond Board of Education

5th ANNUAL scramble for BREAKFAST club By Graeme Wood The now annual Breakfast Scramble entered its fifth year to raise funds and awareness for the Richmond School District’s breakfast club called Feed-U-Cate. Even Batman made a guest appearance! District maintenance workers saddled up on their motorcycles on June 7 and visited the 11 participating schools. There, they handed out letters for a Scrabble game. This year students at Whiteside elementary won for a second straight year with a 90-point score by spelling Graziers. Second place went to students at Gilmore elementary. Co-organizer Mike Beausoleil, director of maintenance and operations, said the works yard would be serving Whiteside school with a breakfast on June 19. This year’s Scramble was special as it included a Batmobile. Actually, it was a three-wheeled motorcycle, a Polaris Slingshot, which was decorated like the Dark Knight’s vehicle. There were 17 motorcyclists who went

around to each school this year. Beausoleil said there are a number of motorcycle enthusiasts in the works yard and the idea for the Scramble is a version of a poker run. “There are a lot of motorcycle enthusiasts in the district. It’s fun for the kids to come out and see us,” he said. Richmond RCMP also came out in support of the Scramble, with two ATVs and a cruiser. Of course, the Scramble is for a good cause, one important to Beausoleil. “I believe we live in a great country and I think it’s important for anyone in Richmond or in Canada, no one should be starving and no one should be going hungry,” said Beausoleil. It is a common misconception that Richmond is a wealthy community and doesn’t have children in need. However, despite high land values and a municipality with healthy reserves, many children do go without breakfast. “We’re trying to raise an image that this exists, trying to bring it to the surface, but making it a fun event. The reward is other people may take notice that donations are

to about two dozen students at each school, on average. Parents and teachers volunteer their time to accept students in the early morning. The club also supports working parents who cannot afford daycare but need to drop their kids off at school slightly early.

By Alan Campbell If Quilchena elementary’s 2nd Annual Young Citizen’s Farmers and Artisans Market is anything to go by, the future of agriculture in Richmond is in good hands. Quilchena students, ably assisted by their Terra Nova Nature School preschool

buddies, successfully hosted their market at Minoru Plaza at the Brighouse Library last Wednesday. The students were selling their own, organically-grown produce and herbs — as well as their own art, poetry, woodwork and cleaning products — in aid of several local charities.

In total, the students raised an impressive $1,793 for The Sharing Farm and Raincoast Conservation Foundation. Andrew Livingston, Quilchena’s Grade 5, 6 and 7 teacher, said the event was very successful, with a busy market for most of the hour or so it was open.

Thank you for helping ensure local health care remains “on-par” at the inspirational 2018 Richmond Hospital Foundation Golf Tournament presented by 2 River Green

Thank you for being a “driving” force to help improve local health care at the Richmond Hospital Foundation Golf Tournament presented by 2 River Green. You helped us raise $318,000 (net) to help provide local health care at Richmond Hospital. Richmond Hospital Foundation’s annual golf tournament brought together our emergency doctors, donors, sponsors and volunteers who all rallied to raise funds to improve patient care at Richmond Hospital. Part of this year’s fundraising focus was the need for new portable ultrasound machines in Richmond Hospital’s Emergency Department to help immediately diagnose life-threatening illnesses and injuries. Thanks to generous donors, the Richmond Hospital Emergency Department will receive two new state-of-the-art ultrasound units. For the 8th consecutive year with Aspac as its Presenting Sponsor and sun-filled spectacular weather, the event brought together 140 golfers and more than 250 guests. Thank you for continuing to demonstrate your long-term commitment to improving health care in our community. 7000 Westminster Highway Richmond BC V6X 1A2 604.244.5252 www.richmondhospitalfoundation.com

Richmond Academy of Dance

Open 7 Days a Week 9:00am–7pm

Richmond Academy of Dance has been teaching dance, voice and acting for 31 years, but its approach is as fresh and exciting as ever. Here are five ways the school stands out. 1. Its students excel across the board Some schools produce great ballet dancers, and some are great for singing, but students at Richmond Academy of Dance excel in all disciplines. It’s the only dance school in the Lower Mainland to have had provincial representatives to the BC Festival of Performing Arts in all dance and vocal categories: Classical Ballet, Modern, Stage, Musical Theatre Voice and Classical Voice. 2. The faculty is the best in the business Annette Jakubowski and Heather Joosten-Fair founded the school 31 years ago after dancing and teaching all over the world. The entire faculty has similarly illustrious careers, as do the many visiting teachers and choreographers. This keeps the school at the leading edge of new disciplines and techniques. “Richmond Academy has played a huge role in my development as an artist, a dancer, an individual and a performer,” says Pamela Schneider, an Academy graduate who’s now with Cirque du Soleil. “My work ethic has stemmed from having trained with a dance company that believes in staying current and keeping high standards.” 3. The graduates go on to great things The Academy has many grateful graduates who’ve

become arts professionals. “Thank you, Richmond Academy of Dance, for helping me achieve my dreams,” says Heather Ogden, Principal Dancer with the National Ballet of Canada. Other alumni include Gregory Pember, a Toronto-based dancer and actor, and Julliard graduate Stephanie Amurao. 4. Every student is viewed as an individual The Artistic Directors give their personal attention to each student, designing individualized programs to meet their needs and achieve their goals, whether they’re planning a career in the arts, or are taking dance classes for fun, exercise or to meet people in the community. 5. This summer, there’ll be programs for kids at every level If your child wants to try out ballet, tap, hip-hop and musical theatre, there’s a five-day summer camp for students aged three to twelve this July. If your high-school student has a beautiful voice, she can head to the July Summer Vocal Camp for a week of private coaching and group classes. July also sees a week-long boot camp for students aged 12+ with strong tap experience, while in August the school is running intensive courses for preprofessional ballet/contemporary dancers and musical theatre students.

Two-wheeled BASKETBALL at QUILCHENA By Graeme Wood It has been a long journey to get to Quilchena elementary for Grade 7 student Abood Elaskary, says his principal Kirsten Wallace. The young Palestinian, who has cerebral palsy, arrived in Canada last year from Saudi Arabia, a nation that does not have as much of a robust set of policies to assist those with disabilities as Canada does. Now, the Quilchena Cyclone is tickling the twine. But when Abood came to Richmond and enrolled at Quilchena, he was welcomed with open arms by his peers and teachers — not an uncommon theme at Richmond School District, which prides itself on accessibility to education and fun activities for all. “Providing an inclusive education for students in the Richmond School District is an important factor when developing classrooms, programs and activities as we want to ensure that all students can learn and play together,” says Eric Yung, chairperson, Richmond Board of Education. Wallace recalls first speaking to Abood’s father about the challenges the family faced before coming to Canada. For one, Abood had not attended school due to his disability. But the transition here, too, was difficult. “We’ve been working hard to bring Abood to school. “It’s hard when you have a special needs son and you’re in a new country. But the

whole school’s behind Abood. He loves interacting with everybody,” said Wallace. That ethos of acceptance culminated last month when the school welcomed BC Wheelchair Basketball Society to its gym to teach all students how to play basketball on two wheels. And for an entire week the society lent the school 10 wheelchairs to play in the gym. “Every time Abood came into the gym he grinned; he was so amazed to see everyone playing,” said Wallace. Students of all grades were able to play against one another on teams during the week and what made the activity special, said Wallace, was that the wheelchairs evened the playing field for all students. “It wasn’t just one kid who was the tallest or who could dribble the ball,” quipped Wallace.

Grade 7 Quilchena elementary student Abood Elaskary was thrilled to have Orion Ng, program coordinator at BC Wheelchair Basketball Society, teach him and his friends how to play wheelchair basketball. [photo credit: Quilchena elementary]

But to get a head start on the others, Abood attended GF Strong rehabilitation centre in Vancouver to first learn how to control a sport wheelchair. “This is a great example of a student feeling welcomed by their neighbourhood school, being supported in his learning and being encouraged to contribute and engage in all aspects of the life of the school,” said Yung. Abood plans to attend Quilchena one more year to catch up on his studies. Meanwhile, he and his family are looking at other programs to attend in Richmond, such as at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

And while the district embeds inclusivity into its code of conduct, the fact remains that older facilities were not as inclusive for children such as Abood. For instance, Quilchena’s playground

is older and Wallace has embarked on a multi-year fundraising drive for a new, allinclusive playground. Follow Quilchena’s many events and activities on Twitter at @QuilchenaC.

All-ages ballet graces Gateway hearsal, she spent some time talking to the students about choices — good and bad. She asked them what bad choices they saw around them and they brought up vaping and e-cigarettes, which some students said was “very in.”

Daisy Xiong RICHMOND NEWS

A little girl goes back in time to peek at her grandmother’s past of becoming a ballerina in a performance hosted by the Richmond Arts Centre.

“I then brought in a specialist from Richmond Addiction Services Society to educate them about what the devices are and why they are harmful. We integrate it like that,” said Jego.

What’s Inside, the Centre’s third annual ballet show, will be performed by more than 100 dancers from various city-led dance programs. Performers include fouryear-old preschoolers to 80-year-old seniors. The one-hour show will grace the stage at 5 p.m. on June 17 at Gateway Theatre.

She and students then converted their inspiration from the conversation into a showcase performance in March titled Choice.

“I hope people will enjoy the performance and be understanding of how crucial art is in our community,” said Miyouki Jego, artistic director of the show. Dancers will use their body language to showcase how a girl named Afelia discovers her grandmother’s dancing days by looking through old items and travelling back in time. Jego said most of the dancers are amateurs who have practised dancing by being part of the city-led dance programs for people of different ages and dance levels. They practised once a week

Spending a lot of time with youth dancers as the lead instructor, Jego has integrated education into their training pro-

gram. Periodically, she will take some time out of rehearsals to have someone talk to students on subjects such as how to handle stress within school. “We spend so much time together and we already have their attention. I’d like to take the chance to do something for them beyond just teaching dance,” she said. Jego recalled that, at the end of one re-

Canada may be a nation only breaching its infancy but its history is just as rich and diverse as any other nation on earth. And any history that contributes to the creation and characteristics of a place and its people deserves to be celebrated. Since 1945, the people of Steveston Village in Richmond have celebrated the heritage of their unique seaside community with a festival reflective of our resource-rich background: The Steveston Salmon Festival. The festival remains a welcoming beacon to British Columbians and Canadians alike to embrace our nation as one steeped in the bountiful, beautiful landscape that defines who we are as a people. “Our founders viewed this community as ‘let’s grow something great for our families and our future generations’ and so, we feel it’s just as important to continue with that goal and with that vision,” said Janice Froese, Administrative Coordinator at the Richmond Agricultural and Industrial Society. “Steveston is still effectively like a

small town within a big city and for us it’s the spirit of Steveston and carrying on that legacy that was started by our founding fathers.” The Richmond Agricultural and Industrial Society has been at the helm of the festival for many years, and the celebration has grown from a fundraiser to build a playground in Steveston Park in 1944, to a full-fledged commemoration of the Canadian biography that attracts nearly 80,000 each year. Froese believes the festival is particularly important because it signifies Steveston’s huge impact in the origination of the Metro Vancouver area. “Steveston is one of the first communities that was ever founded in B.C., its history dates back nearly 140 years. [Steveston] is older than the city of Vancouver itself,” said Janice Froese, Coordinator at Steveston Community Society. Remembering and celebrating our history is an important part of preserving culture and cultivating identity. The Richmond Agricultural and Industrial Society are passionate about continuing to remind Canadian citizens of their past and remain vigilant on the future and celebrations like the Steveston Salmon Festival are paramount to the continuation of that practice.

‘Rabbit people’ warn of bunny epidemic Alan Campbell RICHMOND NEWS

ithin four days, one had become seven and, by the end of the week, another three were taken into “custody” to prevent the proliferation getting out of control.

W

Aime Nowak isn’t even a “rabbit person,” and certainly doesn’t want to get into the “rabbit business.” However, she also doesn’t want the bunnies multiplying by the dozen and wreaking havoc in her townhouse complex on the west dyke at the far end of Williams Road. So, more than two weeks ago, when her daughter, Gabriella, came home with a lottery-winning smile and a rabbit in her arms, mom-of-two Nowak felt she had no choice but to adopt, at least for a few days. Nowak, who already had two cats and a Guinea pig, stuck the rabbit into a cat carrier and started calling all the local animal shelters and rabbit rescues. No one could take her, they’re all completely full, while the City of Richmond’s contracted animal shelter, RAPS, had to incinerate its rabbit accommodation after the March out-

break of rabbit hemorrhage disease (RHD). She then managed to arrange for a mutual friend to permanently adopt the rabbit at the end of the week and offered to contribute towards getting her spayed. But four days later, her eldest daughter came in and said the bunny had ripped off all of her belly fur and was making a nest. “I was like ‘shut up, this is not happening.’ Two hours later, we now have six more little bunnies. The Internet told me it would be one to three days. It lied. “The adoption was then off, obviously, because we can’t take the mom away from the babies. “So then, we thought we might as well try to catch the rest out of the family out there before even more of them appear.” Within a few more days, the Nowaks’ backyard had 10 rabbits in three crates, a pen and an eight-foot long wooden rabbit run, built by Nowak’s husband, Simon, who happens to be a secondary school woodwork teacher. She’s now in the process of talking to her strata council to see if they can help with spaying and neutering the rabbits. However, Nowak feels, if the city’s animal shelter and local rabbit rescues can’t help, the city itself has to step up.

“I don’t mind spaying or neutering one or two, but I’m not doing all of them,” she added. “We now have mom, dad and eight offspring, one went to Rabbitats and we think there are probably more roaming around out there, as well. “We’d like to stay on top of this. It’s everyone’s problem and no one’s problem. It has now become our problem. “But I really think the city needs to step up. Perhaps with some land to house them and maybe a spaying and neutering program.” Nowak pointed out that rabbits, over time, do way more damage than cats and dogs — for which there is a spaying/neutering program — and rabbits “reproduce, like rabbits!” Nowak’s ultimate plan is to find new homes for her makeshift “rabbit colony” via an Ins-

tagram account she has started up: Edgewater_Fluffle. “But I can’t just give them out to anyone without them understanding what the rabbit needs, how long they live etc.,” she added.

O

ne of the rabbit rescue charities, Rabbitats, has been advising Nowak on how to house and handle the rabbits and offering access to discounts on spaying and neutering. Rabbitats’ founder, Sorelle Saidman, said the rabbit problem in Nowak’s townhouse complex is not isolated and is symptomatic of what’s happening across Richmond. “It’s everywhere and we’re trying to get stratas on board across the city,” Saidman told the Richmond News.

Rabbitats: Pointless if city doesn’t help out Cambie Community Centre two weeks ago. And it’s not the rabbit fans showing up, it’s the people living in stratas who are trying to save their landscaping. The problem has been getting worse over the last year.”

Saidman referenced a “10-year baby boom,” where, according to biologists, every decade, the rabbit population explodes. In 2006, there was an explosion in Richmond and the city authorized a cull. But disease and starvation dealt with it before the cull was activated. “That (natural cull) would have lasted a couple of years to 2008, so in 2018, here we are,” said Saidman, who has 225 rabbits at her South Surrey and Delta shelters and 20 or so in a trailer at Richmond Auto Mall. Most of them, she said, came from the auto mall, which spent more than $60,000 a few years ago on a spaying and neutering program. “We want the city to do the same on public property what stratas are willing to do on private property, otherwise it’s pointless,” explained Saidman. “The auto mall is now faced with rabbits coming in again from city property. It’s nose to tail rabbits from the auto mall to Ikea, there are hundreds and hundreds. The control has to be city-wide. “We need partnerships between the rescues and the city. The rescues, right now, are partnering with private property owners. But this is a big city and it has to be dealt with on city property as well.” Saidman called for the city to release some land, set up a colony with a spaying/neutering and education program.

R

APS, as the city’s contracted animal shelter, has been taking some heat from the rabbit rescue community for not doing more to help.

However, Pat Johnson, RAPS’ spokesperson, said the nature of the recent RHD outbreak meant the no-kill charity had to cull all of its 67 rabbits and incinerate everything related to them. Johnson said it’s going to cost around $35,000 to rebuild the rabbit section; money which will have to be raised first. RAPS estimates it will take until January to be in a position to accept rabbits again and, even then, it only has provision in its city contract for 24 rabbits. “We don’t like to turn away any animals, we’re a no-kill shelter,” Johnson added. “But we do have capacity limits for all of our animals.” He said the reality is that an issue such as a rabbit population boom requires a “longterm commitment as it’s a significant problem.” Asked if it should be doing more to deal with the situation, the City of Richmond said it was currently monitoring the situation with rabbits and has been in ongoing discussions with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and local animal charities. “Unfortunately, the city is limited in what it can do in the area of rabbits as they are considered Schedule C Wildlife under provincial wildlife legislation,” said the city’s spokesperson, Ted Townsend, in a statement.

If nothing happens, she warns Richmond will undoubtedly have a bigger problem to deal with six months to a year down the line.

“The city can trap, hold, and euthanize rabbits, but not release or make available for adoption. The approach the city has taken is that of educating the public on the release of rabbits into parks and the feeding of rabbits, which are prohibited under civic bylaws.”

“This isn’t about saving the bunnies anymore, this is now about saving property,” she said.

The city banned the sale of rabbits from stores in 2010 in a bid to deal with the recurring issue.

“In six months’ time, property owners and the city will likely have spent thousands of dollars repairing the damage made by rabbits.

“We encourage other municipalities that have yet to ban sales of rabbits from pet stores to follow suit,” added Townsend.

“A small investment now would likely save a lot of that expenditure. “I’m not going to even lobby against a lethal cull, but the money that might be spent on that could easily go to a sanctuary with a spay and neuter program.”

Aime Nowak has had to turn her small backyard into a makeshift rabbit sanctuary to deal with the mini rabbit explosion in her townhouse complex. She fears her strata is not the only one in Richmond dealing with the issue and is calling on the city to step up. Alan Campbell photo

“Many of the current feral rabbits in Richmond or their ancestors may have been purchased elsewhere but then released in Richmond.” Townsend said the city is “currently not resourced to fund the trapping of rabbits and establishing sanctuaries.”

Radio club bounces signals Alan Campbell RICHMOND NEWS

Ever wondered how we might communicate with each other in the event of a catastrophic event? Well, you might find out if you get along to the Richmond Amateur Radio Club’s (RARC) annual field day at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, running for 24 hours, from 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 23. During the day, club members will be testing emergency radio communications, as well as showcasing different aspects of the amateur radio hobby from its club station VE7GOG, situated on the grounds of Parks Canada at the cannery. During the event, visitors in the Steveston Village area will be able to drop by the parking lot of the cannery and see how radio contacts are made by bouncing signals off satellites using handheld antennas, use Morse code, send messages using the club’s emergency go-kit or watch RARC members make radio contacts

across North America on different HF frequency bands. Every year, on the fourth weekend of June, club members join more than 35,000 amateur radio operators from across Canada and the U.S. in “ham radio’s open house” to demonstrate the science, skill, community service and emergency preparedness of amateur radio. The American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the national association for amateur radio in the U.S., has been organizing the annual event since 1933. “This year, RARC has decided to hold Field Day at VE7GOG instead of its usual location at Garry Point Park, because the club is in the process of making upgrades to its station and Field Day is an opportune time to test the station’s emergency response capabilities,” said Urey Chan, president of RARC. “The club station has participated in recent emergency exercises but it has been a while since the equipment operated continuously for 24 hours, especially offgrid using alternate power sources.”

Centre for Disability moves mall is not very usual.”

Richmond’s Centre for Disability (RCD) has found a new home in Lansdowne Centre, after looking to relocate for several years. In February, a rezoning sign was posted on the side of RCD’s building at 1005671 No. 3 Rd. However, Ella Huang, executive director, told the Richmond News at the time that the organization had “started the whole process of relocation” in 2015. Now, RCD is hoping to be in its new home by January, 2019. “We’re very happy that we’re going to move to the new location,” Huang said. “It’s a new perspective we’re taking on, because having a social service agency inside a shopping

Huang said that the new location is larger, has ample parking space and easy access to shops. One challenge the organization has faced is changing some of its programs. For example, RCD offers occasional cooking classes, but the new space doesn’t have a kitchen. As a result, RCD has partnered with the Garratt Wellness Centre to run the classes there.

Developer helps emerging artists “Layers of Richmond,” now sitting at the greenway at Alexandra and No. 4 roads, near the Garden City Lands, representing layers of soil in the city.

Daisy Xiong RICHMOND NEWS

“By working with younger artists, you take chances. The public art projects allow them to create works and build up the resume, with a smaller budget,” said Sandhu.

When developers build housing projects in Richmond, they can either hand over art funds to the city or commission local art in the neighbourhood themselves.

Compared with established artists, younger artists usually need more guidance on the feasibility of their ideas, such as safety and maintenance.

Richmond developer Amit Sandhu has come up with a third option — investing part of the funds to create an education course for young emerging artists during which they learn about how to engage in public art.

“But it also means that they are not limited by them. They have a lot of ideas and it forces us, as the industry, to think if we can turn them into reality,” he added.

This initiative won him the 2018 Business and the Arts Award given by the City of Richmond last month at city hall.

Having done five public art commissions for his company, Sandhu believes that it is important for developers to help create more local public art within neighbourhoods.

“All of the cities are collecting money (from developers) to create public art, but a lot of young artists don’t even know that those funds exist in the city,” said Sandhu, CEO of Ampri Real Estate Development Group. “It’s wonderful to have an active art community today, but how can we make sure that the next generation also carries that forward? “We have to allow them some sort of access to the process, so that the benefit of public art will continue to thrive and grow in Richmond.” In 2015, Sandhu partnered with Professor Cameron Cartiere from Emily Carr University of Art + Design to create a one-semester undergraduate course called “The Social Practice of Public Art,” using his project on Alexandra Road as a study example. “It was an interdisciplinary course given by a very diverse team,” explained Sandhu.

The public art fence, behind Richmond developer Amit Sandhu is called “Layers of Richmond.” It is designed by emerging artist Christian Zenga to represent layers of soils in the city. Daisy Xiong photo ”We had myself as the developer, professors, and staff from the City of Richmond not only in public art but also in the sustainability department. We also had city archivists and a landscape architect ecologist.”

important step, because when you are creating public art, it has to have some local significance and local context; it needs to tell a bit of the story about the community creatively,” said Sandhu.

Students came out with a report on the history, ecology, demographics, infrastructure, legacy and resources of the neighbourhood at the end of the program, which was used as a reference for artists who bid for the project.

Following the course, the city also held a series of workshops for emerging artists to learn about public art, also using the project on Alexandra Road as an example.

“Understanding the neighbourhood is an

A design from Christian Zenga, a new graduate from Emily Carr, was selected in the end. He created a 95-feet-long fence called

“Like many other developers, we’ve written cheques to the city’s public art fund that helps with bigger projects throughout the city,” said Sandhu. “But by doing more on our own, we can have smaller art in more areas in the city. It’s more diverse as well.“ He believes that public art helps create a vibrant community and sends out a welcoming message. “It’s good for our development project and good for the people living there,” he said. “And for me, it’s very interesting and rewarding to know about those great ideas and to meet all the people from different backgrounds.“

Nature’s Path says ‘no’ to pipeline After the federal government announced it would buy the Trans Mountain pipeline and related infrastructure from Kinder Morgan for $4.5 billion, a Richmond company stepped forward to oppose the project. Nature’s Path, an organic breakfast food company, turned off its website earlier this month and replaced it with a message to voice opposition to the proposed pipeline expansion in western Canada. “We believe renewable energy is the way

The company has also started a petition asking the Canadian government to walk away from new investments in fossil fuels and to instead invest in renewable energy. The petition is sponsored by NDP MP for New Westminster —Burnaby Peter Julian and has raised 270 signatures across the country to date. “We believe businesses can be a force for good and have a critical role today in driving our future towards a low-carbon economy,” said Jyoti Stephens, a second generation

member of the family-owned business and vice president. Nature’s Path invites people to create their own anti-pipeline messages on the company’s website, with art contributed by local artists, and share these on social media to raise awareness about the campaign. Stephens said the company believes access to clean water and food free of contaminants is a basic human right, however, the proposed pipeline expansion means a sevenfold increase in coast-to-port tanker traffic in Vancouver, increasing the risk of an oil spill, which can contaminate farmland. “Unless we pipe up and collectively push for

change, the planet we love remains at risk. We are asking people to help raise awareness for the need for renewable energy and to petition the federal government to say no to the proposed pipeline expansion,” she noted. Nature’s Path Foods, at 9100 Van Horne Way, has been producing solely organic food since its first day of business in 1985. Their slogan is, “always leave the soil better than you found it.” It has a number of initiatives to promote clean energy, including providing a $1,000 subsidy for the staff’s purchase of an environmentally-friendly car.

Activist Fenella Sung, with Vancouver’s Friends of Hong Kong Society, said the conference is a good example of how the CPC uses seemingly harmless organizations to present a positive image of itself. “They never talk about what are the concerns and barriers they are facing, such as the trade deficit and recent brutality in China,” said Sung, who points to a recent report to CSIS outlining various issues with China’s trade missions and efforts to influence and undermine liberal democracies.

NEWS

Smell origin argued Shuchat will help lead a group of residents to contest Harvest Power’s air quality permit this September at the Environmental Appeal Board.

Graeme Wood RICHMOND NEWS

In May, there were 168 official complaints to Metro Vancouver naming Harvest as a suspect. That’s the most complaints fielded since January, 2017.

Last month marked an 18-month high for complaints to Metro Vancouver naming Harvest Power as the source of overpowering, rancid odours lingering across Richmond.

But company spokesperson Stephen Bruyneel is blaming the manure and Enviro Smart.

However, one new and one traditional source of odour could be putting noses on the wrong scent.

“That proves the spike in odour complaints is not us,” said Bruyneel.

First, a composting facility in Delta, Enviro Smart, may be confusing residents. Second, chicken manure, being spread on farmland and the Garden City Lands, has also been identified by Metro Vancouver officials as a source of complaints (as opposed to Harvest Power), according to Metro Vancouver Environmental Regulation and Enforcement Manager Ray Robb.

Robb concurred Delta’s Enviro Smart processing plant may also be adding rotten smells into the local air. “When the wind is coming from the southeast it’s more likely it’s Enviro Smart and this is particular in the Steveston area,” said Robb. That facility has increased its organic waste intake recently, including from Richmond homes. “In some sense it has moved the problem,” said Robb.

In May, officials did not verify odours emanating from Harvest Power, in east Richmond, said Robb. “Data doesn’t support Harvest is responsible for many of the complaints.

Yet Robb said Metro Vancouver is preparing to issue a permit to Enviro Smart, while Harvest Power’s permit expires in April 2020. Permits are issued, he said, to balance the ability of businesses to operate and to protect air quality for residents.

“Verified complaints due to Harvest are down but they’re still substantial,” he said. According to many residents, Harvest Power is still emanating odours.

PRUDENTIAL ESTATES (RMD) LTD.

Shuchat said residents should be cognizant of Harvest Power’s modus operandi:

“I think people who live close by or in the east side of Richmond, near Ironwood, are just beside themselves,” said Arnold Shuchat, an organizing member of Stop the Stink Richmond, a growing group of residents seeking a permanent solution to odours emanating from organic waste to energy company Harvest Power.

“They’re a business, plain and simple. [Harvest] may tell us this (composting) is done for the greater good and what not, but at the end of the day, Harvest is a business trying to make a buck. And who gives them the right to stink it up for all us residents?”

Pacific Wave’s junior team surprises all with top 10 performance

B.C. JUNIOR B TIER ONE LACROSSE LEAGUE

Kara Kalin’s coach-of-the-year award reflected her all-round work with the Pacific Wave Synchronized Swim Club. However, it could have been for her strategy that paid off in a big way at the recent Canadian Championships in Windsor, ON.

Kalin happened to be at nationals with her Watermania-based club when she was honoured at the annual Richmond Sports Awards banquet. Team member Nancy Liu was also recognized as Youth Female Athlete of Year. It was back in September when Kalin had to improvise her junior team selection when a number of her veteran swimmers opted to retire. Rather than just focusing on candidates in the eligible age group, she went even further, adding athletes that are still in elementary school. “Actually, it’s pretty mind blowing. We had such a huge range of athletes from the youngest being 11 to the oldest being 17. You have pre-teens and teenagers so you are really trying to get the athletes to bond, connect and fight for each other,” explained Kalin. “It was a full year process and not a lot of people believed we could do it. Some thought it was actually a

crazy idea. We really had to work on building the belief of the team and cohesion.” After months of training with Kalin and her sister — assistant coach Candace Kalin — the team enjoyed moderate success and managed to qualify for nationals. However, it was hardly with authority after a

penalty deduction left them barely inside the top 20. They headed to Windsor as a long shot but surprised everyone with a season best score to place eighth — just fractions behind their rival from Victoria who had always finished comfortably ahead of them. “I was blown away,” said Ka-

lin. “Sure you are hoping for that kind of an outcome, but honestly, I wasn’t expecting it so it was greatly welcomed.” The team included Kendall Stirrat, Alethea Fikri-Chapman, Keily Hutt, Margarita Kravriotis-Escuer, Hannah Kryworchko, Lisa KoyamaWong and Liu.

Being one of Canada’s top young judo athletes comes with a significant cost to cover expenses Mark Booth RICHMOND NEWS

It takes even more than hard work, dedication and exceptional talent when you are taking your game to the world’s biggest stage.

At the end of the month he is headed to Montreal for the Canada Cup where he will be competing exclusively against U21 and senior opponents. Then it’s off to Argentina for the Pan American Championships where he is the only Canadian athlete to qualify in both the U18 and U21 divisions. He won bronze at this event a year ago and now has his sights on gold.

The 17-year-old is coming off another dominating performance at the national championships in Montreal where he won his own age group in the -90 kg weight class for the fourth consecutive year. He also stepped up to capture silver at U21.

A Go Fund Page was launched this week to assist with the costs —www.gofundme.com/ianryder-judo-panams-2018. His grandfather’s musical talent will also be assisting the cause.

It’s at this the age level where Ryder was selected to represent his country back in March at European Cup competitions. He more than held his own against older opponents, finishing ninth and seventh in Portugal and Bosnia respectively. On the weekend, he was named U18 Male Athlete of the Year at Judo B.C.’s annual award banquet. That honour comes on the heels of also being recognized as the top Youth Male Athlete of the Year at the 20th annual Richmond Sports Awards back in April.

Ryder is deeply grateful for the continued financial support he has received from his own club and Judo B.C. to cover some of his immense travel and training costs. However, it still takes far more as he continues to establish himself by competing in world class international events in order to be eligible for further funding from Judo Canada. This summer’s travel itinerary is estimated at just under $5,000 — $1,750 for flight, accommodation, meals and transportation in Montreal and the rest for same expenses in Argentina, plus medical insurance.

Ian Ryder is on such a path as one of the top athletes to come out of the Steveston Judo Club in recent memory.

Mark Booth RICHMOND NEWS

The decision not to continue with the senior team came shortly after last month’s spring camp that attracted just over 20 players for the daily after school sessions.

It appears a 57-year-old tradition is over at Hugh Boyd Secondary. A decision was made last week not to continue with the school’s varsity football program for the 2018 season which would have started in September. A letter from Boyd principal Ravinder Johal was emailed to players and parents on Wednesday afternoon and also posted on the school’s website: “This was not an easy decision and every effort was made by our coaching staff to ensure a team was possible. “The decision came down to the number of players willing to commit to playing football. “We are saddened that Hugh Boyd Football has come to an end, however, it is a testament to our local community and committed coaches that it has thrived for so long. We know that football programs in the province and across the country, particularly in urban areas, are struggling to field teams. “Thank you to the Haddow brothers, (teachers) Mr. Miller, Mr. Aura, and all of our community coaches for their time devoted to

A 57-year-old football tradition at Hugh Boyd appears to be over after it was announced last week there would not be a varsity team for the upcoming season.

Boyd Football. We also appreciate the work of staff and parents who supported our players both on and off the football field.” A city that had a rich high school football tradition, dating back to the 1960s now has no teams. Programs at Steveston High, RC Palmer and Richmond High all folded in the last three decades — reflecting the city’s immense change in demographics. The Trojans program, launched in 1960, somehow marched on under longtime teachers and coaches Bill and Bruce Haddow — fielding teams at the senior and junior levels — since the mid-1990s when all Richmond secondary schools went Grades 8-12.

A partnership was recently struck with Richmond Minor Football for junior age players to play at the community level before coming to Boyd — leaving the school with just the one team in operation in addition to an introductory Grade 8 program in the spring. Then the Haddow brothers announced the 2017 season would be the final chapter of their remarkable coaching careers that spanned over 40 years. The campaign concluded with a loss in the provincial quarterfinals last November at B.C. Place Stadium. Bill is in his final days of teaching at Boyd and will be working part-time for the Surrey School District next year. It will allow him to

When reached for comment, Bill says he is extremely disappointed with the decision, nearly admitting he never would have walked away knowing this is what the outcome would be so soon. “I left thinking the program was in reasonably good shape and always assumed someone would step up if it really came down to it,” he said. “In this day in age, you are never going to get a great turnout of kids in the spring. They are just way too busy with other things. “Our low enrollment numbers don’t help either. I just feel really bad for the kids who have been with the program for the last four years and now don’t get their Grade 12 year.”

Those numbers needed be closer to 30 for the program to continue. However, there was also some uncertainty who would oversee the team moving forward after an apparent successor to the Haddows was accepted to a university back east.
