Smashing more fun than fury Alyse Kotyk RICHMOND NEWS
I’m not exactly the type to want to smash a plate against a wall. When I’m angry, I prefer to “have some alone time,” “go for a walk,” or “take a few deep breaths” to calm down. Or, to be honest, when I’m angry, I’m most likely just hungry.
Yet somehow I was the one in our team tasked with trying out Richmond’s new “smash room” – a venture by Exit Canada that allows you to go into a room and smash bottles, plates, jars, printers and computers, if you so choose (and if you so pay). (See story on page 29) “It’s really therapeutic,” said one employee. “If you want, you can bring a picture of an ex-boyfriend and tape it to something that you smash,” said another. Yikes. Now, I’m all for catharsis, but is there a chance this could just condition us towards aggressive responses? Isn’t it better to teach ourselves how to slow our heartrate down and approach situations calmly?
Shouldn’t we be working to minimize aggression in our society, not monetize it?
Clearly, I’m not a psychologist, but something tells me that encouraging the public that it’s best to cure your rage by smashing dinner plates against a wall could be problematic for our long-term wellbeing.
On the ﬂip side — and if this really is all well and good for our psychology and society — I somehow doubt it will help your fury to drive to the smash room (driving in Richmond just might make your rage worse, after all), calmly consider your various smash options on a menu, pay (it isn’t cheap), listen to a ﬁve-minute safety preamble, put on a safety suit, a face mask, body armour and gloves, then smash items from a predetermined bin against a very speciﬁc wall. In other words, it’s all very regimented. Don’t get me wrong, I understand safety and liability, and I don’t fault them for their process. But I’m not quite sure it has that rage-releasing effect they’re advertising. Or maybe I’m just the wrong audience. Personally, describing a smash room as “therapy” is a bit worrisome to me and I think there are likely better ways to manage anger. But at the end of the day, therapeutic or not, throwing a plate against a wall, dropping a glass bottle from the top of a set of stairs, swinging at glass jars with a baseball bat and smashing a laptop with a crowbar so it sends keyboard pieces ﬂying is just really, really fun.

No proof of racial discrimination
Mayor: Proud of roots Dear Editor, Re: “More than Chinese to be remembered,” Letters, Aug. 2. The letter from Morris McWhirter, reﬂects how Richmond, speciﬁcally Steveston, should celebrate all of Richmond’s diversity. In fact, amongst many of Steveston’s historic sites, there are several buildings and monuments that honour people from many cultures, all of whom contributed immensely to our history, growth and success. For instance, the Britannia Shipyards National Historical Site demonstrates living conditions prior to 1941 in the restored Japanese Murakami House. Similarly, the Murakami Boatworks outlines the family history of Asayo and Otokichi Murakami. The Richmond Boat Builders and Boat Yard was originally built during the Depression as a Japanese-Canadian boat-building facility.
stories of Steveston’s changing waterfront as well as the people from many cultures who worked together.
another National Historic site, focuses on the evolution of the commercial ﬁshing industry on Canada’s west coast.
Capital development and interpretation plans are in the works for the Japanese Duplex and the First Nations Bunkhouse.
The important integration of Japanese, Indigenous and Chinese cultures in Steveston’s ﬁshing industry is outlined in Cannery tours, exhibits and artifacts.
All are in addition to the restored Chinese Bunkhouse, which highlights the stories of Chinese cannery workers. Throughout Steveston Village is the Nikkei Stories series, an interactive self-guided walk comprising 10 short ﬁlms on Japanese Canadian history in the village. Elsewhere in Steveston, the Japanese Fishermen’s Benevolent Society building located behind the Museum and Post Ofﬁce highlights interpretation of Japanese Canadian life in Steveston until their forced evacuation during WWII.
This restored building is currently used for boat repairs and restoration.
The Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre and the Marital Arts Centre are located next to the Steveston Community Centre.
The Seine Net Loft explores the
The Gulf of Georgia Cannery,
Re: “More than Chinese to be remembered,” Letters, Aug. 2 I was dismayed to read a recent letter to the editor that claimed that “there was only a Chinese bunkhouse” at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site.
A current exhibit: Pull of the Net, features the Indigenous ﬁsheries.
Had the letter writer taken time to explore the site, they might have come across the First Peoples Bunkhouse, the Japanese Duplex, or the Murakami House, which was owned by a JapaneseCanadian family, prior to their forcible relocation by the federal government in 1942.
The Richmond Museum’s current online exhibition, In Their Words: The Story of BC Packers tells the story of BC Packers and its predecessors, which operated the Imperial Cannery in Steveston. For nearly 100 years, men and women of diverse origin – First Nations, Chinese, Japanese, South Asian and European among others – worked side by side to harvest and process the produce from the sea.
However, this is not to say that the letter writer is wrong in their disappointment with Hong Guo’s message to Chinese voters. As the Richmond News has so ably reported, her campaign team believes that there is “racial discrimination” against Chinese people in this city.
Richmond city council and staff are proud of the city’s commitment to recognizing and communicating our diverse roots.
Where is the evidence of this? True, there have been racist incidents in the past several years (grafﬁti, ﬂyers, etc.), but where
Malcolm D. Brodie MAYOR
is the evidence of systematic discrimination?
Likewise, I often read stories on social media about non-Chinese people facing discrimination at businesses owned by people of Chinese background. Again, where is the evidence? We unfortunately live in a time in which evidence and facts seem to matter less than opinions, hearsay, and innuendo. The letter writer perhaps passed by the Britannia site quickly and therefore missed out on the other parts of the museum — an honest mistake. There may, indeed, be systematic discrimination against Chinese people in Richmond — but I haven’t seen the proof. And until some brave person takes a complaint to the BC Human Rights Tribunal after being refused service at a food court, it’s just an urban myth. With a municipal election coming up, it’s imperative that we all place fact and evidence ﬁrst.

Readers weigh in on rainbow steps Dear Editor,
Re: “Rainbow targeted,” News, Aug. 2. Being afraid of differences and of change is normal, but what we do with that fear is what counts.
RICHMOND APPRECIATION DAY
Going out at night and pronouncing judgment on a symbol of inclusion and hope doesn’t make us a better person nor make Richmond a better place. While these issues may seem overwhelming to some, they are quite simple for our life together: Welcome as God welcomes, love as unconditionally as God loves in Jesus. Defacing the artwork on the library steps is neither welcoming nor loving.
The rainbow steps at the cultural centre were targeted last week
Dear Editor, Re: “Rainbow targeted,” News, Aug. 2. Let’s see. The city paints the library steps in support of a political movement related to sexual orientation. Fine. I don’t mind.
Pastor, Our Saviour Lutheran Church RICHMOND
Someone else, however, disagrees with that political statement and, with chalk, writes a message expressing disagreement. How is that vandalism? They didn’t use paint. They didn’t break windows. They didn’t knock down doors.
They didn’t even mar the city’s political statement. I don’t agree with whoever did this, but it’s a far, far cry from being vandalism, no matter how many times you say it is.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took in the sights, sounds and some of the ﬂavours of the Richmond Night Market on Saturday as he toured parts of B.C. for the long weekend. Trudeau, who had been vacationing with his family in Toﬁno last week, visited the market for the ﬁrst time “to
help celebrate our B.C. Day long weekend and sample some of our delicious food offerings at the International Food Fair and Summer Seafood Festival,” according to a Richmond Night Market press release. Along with enjoying photo opportunities in the night market’s crowd, the prime minister also gave a brief speech, highlighting the B.C. Day long weekend and Food Day Canada.
“As you go around these stalls, just know that as you’re sampling dim sum and sticky buns and food from all around the world, know that you are eating Canadian food because Canada is a country that draws together people from all over the world,” Trudeau said in his speech. Meanwhile, Conservative Richmond MP Alice Wong took to Twitter to challenge Trudeau to tell the crowd: “I legalized marijuana.”

PIPELINE THREATENS FISH Raincoast Conservation report at Richmond-News.com
Sockeye opening marks big run Graeme Wood RICHMOND NEWS
A mass migration of wild sockeye salmon is expected to pass by Steveston over the next two months while Wednesday marked the ﬁrst commercial ﬁshery opening on the Fraser River. About 14 million sockeye are expected to enter the Fraser River, according to early estimates from the Paciﬁc Salmon Commission. But hot weather and a warm river could imperil the ﬁsh and hamper what could otherwise be a large ﬁsheries opening, said the commission’s chief biologist Mike Lapointe. “This is the dominant run. And this is expected to be a relatively large run,” said Lapointe, noting the 2018 sockeye run is part of the strongest of four life cycles for Fraser sockeye, on account of the large Adams River (Shuswap Lake) population. Over the past three years, sockeye salmon runs have been poor and the 2016 run was the lowest in recorded history (a reported 853,000). “The other years weren’t anything to write home about,” said Lapointe. This year could see as many as 22.9 million sockeye come up the Fraser (a 25 per cent chance) or as few as 5.2 million (a 10 per cent chance), said Lapointe. These are the babies of the 19.8 million sockeye that arrived in 2014. This year’s dominant sockeye population heading to the Adams is part of the “late summer” run and, as such, the ﬁsh have yet to arrive in the Salish Sea, from the ocean. The early Stuart sockeye run had a better showing than expected, according to the commission’s July 27 run status report: while the commission’s pre-season forecast was 84,000, the inseason run was counted at 122,400. As of Friday, about 991,000 sockeye from all sockeye populations have been counted at the Mission checkpoint. Lapointe expressed worry,
however, about the river’s warm temperatures and low ﬂow of water – two factors that increase mortality rates. Last Thursday’s water temperature near the Fraser Canyon was 20.7 degrees Celsius whereas, for sockeye to thrive, it should be closer to 18 degrees. And water discharge was 22 per cent lower than average, according to the commission.
Lapointe said a cooling off period across the province could spell better fortune for the ﬁsh, but at the moment he pegs the mortality rate (ﬁsh passing Mission but not getting to spawning grounds) at 20 per cent. The commission is an intergovernmental agency that works with U.S. ofﬁcials to assess salmon populations. Data it collects from test ﬁsheries is presented to the Fraser River Panel and De-
partment of Fisheries and Oceans to determine ﬁsheries openings. In 2015, environmental group Watershed Watch Salmon Society claimed the 2014 run was overﬁshed by 1.4 million and fewer ﬁsh spawned than expected. Department of Fisheries and Oceans opened a 24-hour sockeye ﬁshery Wednesday at 7 a.m. Chinook catches were not permitted to assist endangered killer whales.
Commercial ﬁshermen could have plenty of openings, should 14 million sockeye salmon return to the Fraser River this month.

Family says golf club out of bounds Couple sues Quilchena, claiming one ball broke windshield and another nearly hit baby Graeme Wood RICHMOND NEWS
A Richmond couple is suing Quilchena Golf and Country Club because their nearby property has allegedly been hit by golf balls. According to a statement of facts presented to B.C. Supreme Court on July 24, Chao Chen and Meng Lyu, both described as business people, reside at 3391 Semlin Drive, north of the golf course. They are now claiming to suffer “distress and fear for their physical safety and the safety of their [infant] daughter” after 18 balls have allegedly hit their property since January 2018. One incident was a close call, they claim: “On or about May 16, 2018, the plaintiffs’ nanny was pushing their daughter in a stroller on Semlin Drive; as she approached the Plaintiff’s house, she heard a loud sound and a golf ball rolled near the stroller. Based on the nanny’s location and description, it was determined the ball had ﬂown from the direction of the Golf Course. It had hit the wall of the Plaintiffs’ house and rolled under the stroller. It had come close to hitting the plaintiff’s daughter.” Then, on July 3, Lyu and Chen claim a balled severely damaged their car’s windshield. According to the claim, which has not been responded to by the golf club, Quilchena management initially advised the couple that preventative measures would be taken. After the July 3 incident, management then told the couple that such measures would not be taken and no compensation for the windshield would be granted. By refusing to take preventative measures,
the couple’s lawyer, Bonny Blake, argues the club is creating a nuisance and a safety hazard for the family. The property in question is about 100 metres away from the ﬁrst fairway, which is lined with tall trees to the north side. The golf club opened in 1956 and long precedes the homes built to the north of it. Property records show the house in question was built in 2010 and last purchased in October, 2014, for $2.1 million. The couple claims the golf club has “created and permitted an ongoing nuisance, which unreasonably and substantially interferes with and diminishes the reasonable use and enjoyment of property owned by the plaintiffs.”
It had come close to hitting the plaintiff’s daughter.
The claim concludes “the golf club has been acting as an ongoing problem to human safety and property safety to the community.”
Holden Yap, the golf club’s COO, said the club was not commenting at this time and the matter is before the club’s board of directors and legal counsel. Blake did not immediately respond to an inquiry from the Richmond News. Relief is sought in the form of damages against the defendant for nuisance, escape and trespass (of balls). As well, the couple is asking for a mandatory injunction requiring the golf club erect a physical barrier.
Quilchena Golf and Country Club has disturbed one of its new neighbours on Semlin Drive, according to a recent claim in B.C. Supreme Court. Google image.

“Like a Rhinestone Cowboy, gettin’ out on a horse in a Star Spangled Rodeo” (….and offers comin’ over the phone, from the children challenging the Estate) Glen Campbell, the iconic American country singer, died last November, a victim of a six year battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Last month, several newspapers (including The Tennessean) reported that some of his children are challenging his Will. Mr. Campbell was married five times, and had eight children, three of whom were disinherited. It would appear, so far, that it will be a lengthy litigation. Over the last decade, many celebrities have died, seemingly having done little or no Estate planning. It is hard to understand why, given their access to legal advice and in many cases, their large fortunes. Eventually the evidence will emerge in Campbell’s case, but it is unlikely to be unique. Whatever planning he may have done seems to have been inadequate, and typical of far too many celebrities.

RMT Jackie Slomba says Minoru Massage was forced to move from Minoru Aquatic Centre, as the City of Richmond pursued Asian, holistic and dietitian services for its new pool. Graeme Wood photo
Graeme Wood RICHMOND NEWS
A massage therapy clinic at Minoru pool that has served Richmond residents for over three decades will not be relocated to the new Minoru Centre for Active Living. Instead, the City of Richmond, last year, put out an Expression of Interest (EOI) “to provide paramedical services such as those found in traditional Asian and holistic medicines, dietitian services and other related services” and informed service providers it was “not seeking EOI’s for the provision of physiotherapy (physio), massage or chiropractic services.” The owner of Restoring Balance Massage Therapy – Minoru (formerly Minoru Massage), 35-year-old Jackie Slomba, told the Richmond News she feels city ofﬁcials ﬂip-ﬂopped on her business, by eventually deciding such services were not needed at the new pool, slated to open this fall after a roughly 16-month delay. “This has been a huge blow to us, and our thousands of clients that have enjoyed the perks of the space with us working within a city building,” said Slomba, who grew up in Richmond. Slomba said the clinic was initially informed by the city that the new pool would have space for it. “But late in 2017, the city decided we were no longer (needed),” said Slomba, via email, referring to the criteria in the EOI on the BC Bid website. City spokesperson Ted Townsend told the News an EOI is not the only avenue for seeking paramedical services “so it does not necessarily reﬂect the anticipated ﬁnal variety of services that will be available.” Townsend added the EOI “is not a binding process.” But that response was of little comfort to Slomba, who had to move the clinic with
time ticking on the imminent closure of the existing pool. As of this month, the clinic relocated to the Richmond Health Sciences Centre at 6091 Gilbert Road. Slomba also questioned what other avenues the city has explored for services at the new facility, if not an EOI, which she believed to be the go-to process as it eliminates backroom deals.
This has been a huge blow to us.
“We may also enter into discussions independently with other potential partners that we are aware of or who have approached us,” explained Townsend, via email.
“Again, we are in the process of ﬁnalizing agreements with prospective service providers so have nothing further to add until that process is concluded.” JACKIE SLOMBA
Slomba alleged city ofﬁcials told her that anyone currently renting from the city, would get ﬁrst priority to choose if they wanted to go into the new facility. “Unfortunately for me, I did not have this in writing, but only a verbal agreement,” she said. “Had I known that, I would have not purchased the business. No point in buying something that has a ﬁve-year life span only for me to have to rebuild it from the bottom up again.” The new $80 million pool, seniors centre and outdoor recreational facility will feature Canada’s largest hot tub and a cold plunge tub. It should open this fall, according to the latest estimates from the city. Poor winter weather and labour shortages resulted in construction delays, said Townsend.

The host, with the online name Grace, and Van Hoepen then spoke on the phone, when, according to Van Hoepen, Grace told him that black people are not allowed in her building.
Airbnb spokesperson Nick Papas told the Richmond News: “We removed this [host] from our community and will ensure the guests have our full support and assistance in ﬁnding a place to stay.”
“She said, ‘there’s no blacks allowed in the building, please cancel your reservation,’” said Van Hoepen. He alleges Grace then backtracked on her statement and in a subsequent online message to Van Hoepen, she tried to explain that a black man in the building would tip neighbours off to her apparently illegal Airbnb listing: “I will deﬁnitely get ﬁne, as there is no black people in this building.

FARM MANSIONS UNDER LENS
Agriculture Minister speaks to Richmond-News.com about ALR review
City hall launches online B&B map City of Richmond continues to wrestle with illegal rentals; review of 2017 bylaw coming Graeme Wood RICHMOND NEWS
The City of Richmond has created an online map to track licensed bed and breakfast establishments under new shortterm rental bylaws created last year. “We published the new link on the website so that the public could have easier access to determine where the licensed businesses are and it they are within 500 metres (in case they’re considering opening a business themselves),” stated city spokesperson Ted Townsend. Meanwhile, although hundreds of rental units continue to be listed online — many seemingly illegal, due to the number of guests allowed — violation tickets issued by the city have dropped precipitously since an enforcement blitz in 2017. Under a bylaw approved by Richmond city council in March 2017, bed and breakfasts are only allowed in detached homes. Hosts may only rent up to three rooms to up to six people in total. Save for about 20 grandfathered bed and breakfasts, no two can be within 500 metres of one another, in order to mitigate hotel-like activities in neighbourhoods. The map should allow residents to cross reference licences and addresses should they see such activity. With 53 licensed bed and breakfasts now in the city, as of March, most of Richmond’s short-term rentals listed on Airbnb.ca — the eminent short-term rental company — are apartments. Although apartments are forbidden from bed and breakfast licences, residents (in houses or apartments) are nonetheless allowed to host up to two people under the city’s long-established “boarding and lodging” rules. But dozens of available listings (61 for Aug. 23, a random date selected by the Richmond News) are for three or more guests in “entire apartments,” which is forbidden.
As with any underground business, it is impossible to eradicate as long as there is supply and demand... TED TOWNSEND

An online B&B map at Maps.Richmond.ca/BnB shows licensed detached homes, allowed to host up to six guests. Save for grandfathered B&Bs, no two can be within 500m of one another. Online screenshot “We are constantly following up on complaints and doing our own research. It is ongoing. Our work is never done,” said Townsend.
Unlike Richmond, the City of Vancouver allows more than two guests in all short-term rental homes. Vancouver also allows such rentals in secondary suites.
“As with any underground business, it is impossible to eradicate as long as there is supply and demand and people willing to ignore or avoid regulations,” he added.
Also, unlike Richmond, Vancouver requires landlords to obtain a business license number and list it on Airbnb.ca.
In 2017, the city issued 87 tickets to violators, according to a staff memo to council in March. This year, the city has issued 21 tickets to May 31, including 15 in May alone, per a community safety committee report. Townsend said, while one may be able to see numerous apparent offenses, the city still needs to “gather evidence that there is an actual infraction of the bylaws in order to take enforcement action, which can be difﬁcult and time consuming.” He added that council can anticipate a full report on the bylaw’s progress this fall. Recommendations about further changes to address illegal short-term rentals is anticipated, he said. Municipalities across the region have adopted similar short-term rental regulations.
Short-term rentals have been a thorn in the side of many residents in Metro Vancouver, a region with a rental vacancy rate of about one per cent. A new provincial law now allows strata councils to ﬁne violators up to $1,000 per day. The City of Richmond also ﬁnes violators $1,000 per day. This year, the city claims to have conducted 110 home inspections as of March. One site inspected is 7520 Steveston Highway, a large mansion fronting farmland. Since the complaints, including some to the News, the homeowner has successfully obtained a bed and breakfast licence for “Arica Funhouse.” See the bed and breakfast online map at Maps.Richmond. ca/BnB.

Teens’ lives changed in Philippines Daisy Xiong RICHMOND NEWS
When the Bellinger brothers turned up at a small Filipino village and started handing out chicken soup to children, the big smiles they received proved their efforts had been worthwhile. Braden, 17 and Kian, 14 undertook a “life-changing” selffunded volunteer trip to help children in one of the poorest areas in The Philippines last month. “My mom is from The Philippines and she grew up in those kinds of areas. She is always telling me stories about how there is a lot of poverty and kids don’t get help,” Braden told the Richmond News. “We were just inspired to help the community there. It’s also special to me to help them out, because I’m also Filipino.” The two McNair secondary students raised $3,000 prior to their trip from their own savings, and from family and friends. Through a family friend, they reached out to a municipal Province of Bulacan, where their mom was born, before being connected to a village elementary.
The Bellinger brothers decided to use a big chunk of their summer to trace their roots to the Philippines and help feed and clothe poverty-stricken children in their mother’s old neighbourhood. (Below, left) Handing out some chicken soup to the student community and (below, right) at home with certiﬁcates to show for their efforts. Photos submitted
After an hour in the car from the city to the harbour and a half-hour boat ride, they arrived at the village and the school — both were built on stilts above the water. “We played games with the students every night, and bought gifts for all the children at school, about 400 of them,” he said. “On the ﬁrst day, we gave them hygiene kits, including toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap; on the second day, we bought everyone new slippers.”
something in a small way but to make such an impact on them.” In the following two weeks, the boys joined the local education ministry as full-time volunteers, delivering school supplies to remote schools. Some villages are so remote that it takes hours in the car, recalled Braden, and some were ﬂooded and could only be reached by a sidecar (a bike with seats attached at the back).
“I saw kids at my age carrying big heavy bags and trying to put stuff down. The difference is so amazing to me, how much work and effort they put in to help their community and their villages.” Braden and Kian aim to continue their journey and bring happiness to more children in other areas of the world. They have started a GoFundMe (GoFundMe.com/Bradens-
“A lot of what we saw were poor areas in The Philippines; children or communities living in poverty. That’s just a recurring sight everywhere we went,” he said. However, what Braden and Kian were impressed the most by, was not the hardship they witnessed, but the happiness and positivity those children have. “I think the people there in the Philippines, especially the children, are much happier than I would have expected. Although they don’t really have a lot, they are probably one of the happiest people I’ve seen in my life,” said Braden. “And I was very moved to see just how much the kids value things. Because they don’t have a lot at all, so everything they have, they value so much.” Braden said the trip has inspired him and his brother to appreciate more what they have in life.
“Perhaps for their whole life, they wouldn’t be getting this kind of blessing and we came and we made them very happy,” said Braden. “I felt very, very humbled; I was happy I was able to do Broccoli Florets

“And I think everyone in ﬁrst world countries should experience that – the connection of poverty and what you live in.” Kian said the problems those kids have are “a lot different” compared to what they have here. “They probably are wondering what they eat for dinner, but a problem I would have is that, oh, my shoes get dirty,” said Kian.
“We will try to continue to organize it on our own. It doesn’t matter where I go – anywhere I can help out and make a small difference,” said Braden. Marilou Bellinger said she is very proud of her sons. “I was so poor; I (used to be one) of those kids. I didn’t have shoes. When the classroom was ﬂooded, we were in while our feet were in the water,” said an emotional Bellinger. “I’m so, so happy to see the boys going back to where I come from, and that they are willing to give back.”

On the last day of their stay, the brothers paid for a “luxurious” soup to be made for the students and the villagers, that had chicken, sausage, pasta and vegetables.

Taking on Cypress in the name of cancer research Alan Campbell RICHMOND NEWS
Rita Reeve knows ﬁrsthand how cancer can impact a family. Her sister-in-law was diagnosed with throat cancer, her three-year-old niece is currently undergoing treatment for brain cancer, and she also lost a brother to colon cancer. To honour them all, Reeve, of Ainsworth Crescent, near Shell Road and Steveston Highway, is taking part in the 11th Annual Glotman Simpson Cypress Challenge on Sunday, Aug. 12, where she will trek up Cypress Mountain along with hundreds of other cyclists. The event beneﬁts the BC Cancer Foundation and pancreatic cancer research taking place at BC Cancer. Since 2008, the challenge has raised over $2.5 million towards ﬁnding solutions and enabling experts to better understand and treat pancreatic
cancer, providing hope to families across the province facing the disease. “We are obviously struggling with cancer across our family,” said Reeve. “Although it’s not pancreatic in particular, I want to do what I can to contribute to cancer research and that has motivated me to take on this event and dedicate my efforts to them.” Reeve is also looking at the event as a personal challenge, and said the day itself brings people together who share the common bond of a cancer connection. “You hear other people’s stories and share camaraderie at an event like this,” added Reeve. “The emotions ﬂow and people come together for a good cause.” Nearly 800 British Columbians will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year; 75 per cent of these patients won’t survive the ﬁrst year, and less than 10 per cent will survive ﬁve
years. Learn more about the event online CypressChallenge.com

Little Steveston...made of Lego for Steveston; it’s a real throwback and it’s part of the real character of Steveston,” said Grant.

“The shipyard was tough because it was so big; the infrastructure I needed to hold up the roof was quite something. It took months to put together.

“The shipyard took the longest because of the size, but Branscombe was the most challenging because the little nuances of the building.
It’s just as well Steveston resident Peter Grant has a successful career in the ﬁnance industry – it’s unlikely he’d win many awards as an architect.
“It takes a long time and a lot of patience. I built it upside down, so I wouldn’t be constrained going the other way.”
Just in case you’re worried about setting foot in any of Grant’s creations, fret thee not, they only range from about one foot wide to 18 inches tall.
Grant said it takes almost as much time to source the very detailed pieces to construct the buildings, having to delve into Lego’s online “underworld” of microsites that sell the pieces around the globe.
All four of his masterpieces are made of Lego pieces, painstakingly sourced from hundreds of locations across the globe. And all four are incredible replicas of some of Steveston Village’s most iconic historical buildings. “I re-did that roof about half a dozen times, it took about a month,” said Grant, pointing out the challenges he faced while constructing a Lego version of Branscombe House on Railway Avenue. “I take a picture of each building and just go from that. Branscombe was the toughest for the parts; the corner pieces for the roof had only ever been produced in this colour for one kit in the world…and that kit only contained two pieces.

It’s taken Grant four years, on and off, to source the rare pieces needed from around the world. Alan Campbell photos
to the third market to get them and it’s really tough to get and expensive. I think those corner pieces were $5 each. I got them from Germany.” Grant, who lives on Duncliffe Road, near Garry Street, admitted he “probably should” work from some kind of blueprint or plan. “But I don’t. I have the luxury of being able to rebuild it, unlike an actual architect. It’s easier
for me to start again.” He recalls spending a lot of time playing with Lego as a kid, but “didn’t really like following the instructions and just putting this piece onto this piece. I preferred not to follow the instructions.” Grant said he never got back into Lego again until four years ago, when he kicked
“Some are from The Netherlands and Germany. There’s a whole AFL (Adult Fan of Lego) community out there who do this,” added Grant. “I often have to go to 20 different sites just to get parts for the one roof. “To me, though, it’s also about capturing some of Steveston’s history because who knows how many years these buildings are going to survive, especially the garage.” Thousands of dollars have likely been spent, in total, admitted Grant but, “when you look at what Lego kits cost in the stores, it’s not that bad really,” he smiled. Grant has never put his creations on display, other than to his mailman, also a Lego enthusiast, who was beset with curiosity as to the hundreds of Lego deliveries from across the world to the address over the years.

“He asked one day, ‘what are all these little pieces I’m delivering all the time?’ So we invited him in to look,” laughed Grant. “His son was trying to build the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, but it was too difﬁcult to ﬁnd all the pieces so he gave up.” Grant said it would be neat to show off his creations in public.

The suburban world of Richmond meets the big city of Tianjin, China at a new calligraphy exhibition at Trinity Western University’s (TWU) Richmond campus.
MEET....PATTIE AND TUCKER
Song Bird & Piano Man Our Cruise Directors on the HMCS MAPLES
A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE A GREAT WAY TO LIVE
Titled “Paper and Ink Give Expression to the Rhythm of Life,” the exhibition came about due to a 27-year relationship between TWU and its counterpart in Tianjin, which is nearby Beijing. The exhibition runs from Aug. 14 to 18 and will feature works from four calligraphy artists from Tianjin: Liu Changxing; Liu Zhiyong; Wei Shengtang and Lyu Sipeng. Seventy calligraphy scrolls will be on display at TWU Richmond and the adjoining City Centre Community Centre.
4071 Chatham Street
“TWU Richmond is hosting this exhibition to increase public awareness on the Chinese culture, as well as provide global education value,” said Dr. Phil Laird, TWU’s vice provost. TWU has a long history of friendship with
the city of Tianjin — in 1991, Dr. Deane Downey, who was the university’s acting dean of faculty, entered into a contract with Tianjin Foreign Studies University. Since then, the relationship between TWU and Tianjin has spread to a city-wide level: more than 160 secondary and primary school teachers from Tianjin have come to TWU for English training and sports teams from TWU have travelled to China for amicable competitions with the athletes there. “Chinese calligraphy has been around for as long as the Chinese language,” said Li Guishan, professor and dean at Tianjin University of Technology. “Each character holds a deeper meaning, and a few phrases can tell a story.” Each artist has his own style of calligraphy — Lyu, the youngest of the four, who has been practicing calligraphy since he was 10 years old, practices the style of “Weibei.” “For me, calligraphy will always be a hobby and a passion,” said Lyu, in Mandarin. An opening reception will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 14 and there will be an interactive artist demonstration daily at 3 p.m.

As part of Richmond Public Library’s annual Summer Reading Club, the Richmond News encourages children to write book reviews, and each week several reviews are chosen to be published. To join the club, see online at YourLibrary.ca. Here are this week’s reviews: 1. Richard Yu, Ferris Elementary, age 9 Title: George and the Blue Moon Author: Lucy and Stephen Hawking I like this book beRichard cause I have a hobby for space travel, and the universe is so big it expands every single second as fast as the blink of an eye and it’s mesmerising. Even at the speed of light you can’t get to the edge of space, and you can’t get through the wall of matter. I recommend this book to all the people who have a passion for interstellar exploration like me. I give this book four and a half stars. 2. Ailah McGillivray, Diefenbaker Elementary, age 13 Title: Pinocchio, By Pinocchio
Author: Michael Morpurgo I really liked this book because it is told from Pinocchio’s point of view, so it really helps you understand why he did things and Ailah how he felt. The story also has a really nice meaning – we’re all the same on the inside, and no one pulls our strings. I give this book four stars. 3. Diljaan Gill, Grauer Elementary, age 12 Title: The War That Saved My Life Author: Bradley
I like this book beDiljaan cause despite having a twisted left foot, Ada was still strong and determined to go with her brother out of London for a better life. The amount of conﬁdence and perseverance that Ada shows will make you feel like you can do anything. If she could do it with one leg, the possibilities for me are endless! I give this book ﬁve stars!

Flashing Lights after text from mom with her,” explained Eng, who has several, discreet, Lights-inspired tattoos.
“We played the World of Warcraft game on her laptop in the streets, near her tour bus. I think it was about 1 a.m. I had to make sure I got my last train at about 1:15 a.m.”
It was a text from her mom that set her off. Richmondite Melanie Eng has been to see her idol Lights perform live around the continent 33 times in nine years and met her in person on more than a dozen occasions.
As well as Lights coming to town soon, Eng — whose music is, unsurprisingly inspired by Lights — has another reason to be excited; she’s just released her second album.
Eng and the Juno award-winning, Canadian singer, songwriter and musician are so familiar that they’re on ﬁrst-name terms.
“It’s an acoustic album, based off my second album, Awake and Dreaming, it’s the same songs but with a different feel, more relaxed. It’s called Re-awakened,” added Eng, saying the songs have been “stripped down.”
So you may forgive Eng for getting a little bit distracted when the message from her mom announced that Lights was coming to play at the Richmond World Festival next month. “Mom saw it in the Richmond News and told me by text,” said a rather excited Eng, a 30-year-old sound editor to trade and an upand-coming singer/songwriter herself, with a second album just released. “I was like ‘What?’ I was so excited. I couldn’t think properly, it was surreal. Richmond is my home town and no one ever really comes here to play. “I couldn’t concentrate on my work and then I started Tweeting (at) Lights. She liked the Tweet and then replied to everyone (on her feed) conﬁrming she was coming to town.” To help the News understand the depth of Eng’s devotion to the “alternative pop” star,

Melanie Eng is pumped about her idol, the Juno award-winning singer/ songwriter Lights (inset), coming to Richmond next month. Alan Campbell photo she proudly laid out on display her entire Lights collection, including: signed albums; Tshirts; posters; bags and Lights’ self-written/ illustrated comics. “When I set up my display here, I Tweeted (Lights) a picture, indicating I’d spent two hours of love doing this. She replied, ‘Wow!!, In love!!’” laughed Eng. “I feel like I kind of grew up with her in a way; I feel like I’ve known her for nine years. “She’s very unique and very talented, writes

“It was in a tent, along the run. It was a good ﬁrst place to perform, because people aren’t actually watching you, they’re just running past,” laughed Eng.
“She always motivates me to never give up and is always uplifting and positive. She stands out from the crowd.”
“I was so nervous. Would I remember my lyrics? I was also going through a rough time, with a break-up three days before it.
Eng has even played live video games with her idol in the streets of Downtown Vancouver in the early hours of the morning.
“And the song I was singing was related to a break-up, so it was hard for me to do. But I realized this was a great opportunity to step out of my shadow. And I didn’t mess up.”

$1.7B potential trade from HK expo Daisy Xiong RICHMOND NEWS
Almost $1.7 billion worth of trade could be heading Richmond’s way, after a successful trip by local businesses to an international food expo in Hong Kong. The Canada Pavilion — which mostly consisted of Richmond businesses at the ﬁrst Belt & Road International Food Expo — was organized by the Richmond-based North America Investment Association (NAIA). The NAIA, according to its president Amy Huang, has brought home around $1.7 billion ($9 billion Chinese RMB) worth of memorandum of understandings (MOUs) from Hong Kong. Huang announced the news at a press conference last month, attended by Richmond MLAs Jas Johal and Teresa Wat and the B.C. Minister of State for Trade George Chow. “We see it as a very successful ﬁrst step. We will continue to fol-

trade with the city of Guangzhou in southern China, worth $5 million.
Companies at the expo displayed local agriproducts, which included icewine, blueberry wine, dry blueberries and raspberries, maple syrup, maple candies, linseed oil and salmon XO sauce, said Huang.
“All the contracts we receive from the MOUs will be given ﬁrst to companies that participated in this expo, and then to other companies from NAIA. If we don’t have those products, we will work with companies outside of our association,” noted Huang.
“Our exhibits are in a very good location, right next to the main entrance, with all our products on display. So many people have come to us and left their contact information for further discussions,” she said.

The food expo, which took place in Hong Kong from June 27 to 29, allowed more than 300 companies from about 35 countries to showcase their food and agricultural products to purchasing agents from around the world. Thirteen companies from Canada participated in the event, including at least seven from Richmond, such
During the expo, NAIA signed three MOUs with the Chinese state-owned company Heilongjiang Great Northern Wilderness Agribusiness Group Corporation and two municipalities in Nanjing and Chongqing, which are both located in central China. The MOUs stated that NAIA will work with the three parties to foster food businesses, trade and investment worth a total of $1.7 billion. After the expo, Huang also signed a MOU on healthy food
Minister Chow said at the press conference he is happy to see what the organization has achieved during the trip. “It is excellent for the organization to be helping us in terms of promoting agricultural and seafood products in Hong Kong,” said Chow. “We also have our own trade representatives in Hong Kong. We see big potential going forward in the Greater Bay area which has a 66 million population, similar in size to South Korea.” Wat, who visited the expo and joined several panels as a former minister, said it’s a “historical opportunity” to showcase Canadian agriproducts to so many countries.
Smash away your rage at ‘anger rooms’ RICHMOND NEWS
You’ve had a bad day at work, you’re stuck in trafﬁc, have gotten into a ﬁght with a friend, still can’t ﬁnd an affordable apartment or found yet another parking ticket on your car.
Richmond News reporter Alyse Kotyk tries “smash therapy.”
Sure, maybe the wise thing to do would be to take a deep breath, put it all into perspective and calmly take some time for self-care.
Multiple Richmond “anger rooms” are giving visitors just that opportunity. Operating since last year, Smash Therapy is located on Elmbridge Way near Gilbert Road. “Some people just want to watch the world burn. While we can’t burn anything here (yet), we offer the next best thing: smashing stuff into tiny little pieces,” Smash Therapy advertises. Smashers can either bring
their own box of things to destroy or smash provided bottles and electronics. Prices range from $19.99 to nearly $1000 for a “legendary package.” Exit, a company typically known for its “escape room” experiences has also gotten into the anger room game and opened a location in Richmond on Beckwith Road near Highway 99 at the end of June. “The anger room is a place where you can bring all of life’s frustrations and let loose to your heart’s content,” says Exit. “The
concept is simple: you smash stuff, and we take care of the rest.

Basking on the PGA Tour NUMBERS BY THE
It was an amazing week at the Canadian Open for Chris Crisologo RICHMOND NEWS
Chris Crisologo looked right at home during his memorable week on the PGA Tour. The 22-year-old Richmond native turned heads with his 45th ﬁnish at the Canadian Open at Glen Abby in Oakville, ON. It earned him medalist honours as the low amateur of the tournament and he was fourth among the Canadian contingent thanks to rounds of 68-69-73-69 — ﬁnishing the 72-hole event at 9-under.
The recent Simon Fraser University graduate, where he enjoyed an AllAmerican collegiate career, showed he could more than hold his own against the “big boys,” especially off the tee.

and week out. It’s just unbelievable just seeing the consistency, even just on the range, and then out here on the course, everything is kind of — you know, standard deviation is a little smaller than mine right now.”
“We’ve always kind of stuck with the time being in the next two years,” added Crisologo of when he will turn pro. “It kind of depends on how my play is and opportunities that arise. So I’m going to stick with that.”
He hasn’t swayed from his development plan despite his success at Glen Abby.
Unfortunately, Crisologo’s success at Glen Abby didn’t carry over to this week’s Canadian Men’s Amateur in
Duncan. He ﬁred rounds of 73-78 and missed the cut. Such is the ﬁne line of golf at the elite level. He will look to rebound at next week’s U.S. Amateur, taking place at world renowned Pebble Beach in California. Earlier this summer, Crisologo captured the B.C. Amateur in Kamloops.
Wong named head coach of Langara golf team One of the top players to ever come out of the Quilchena Golf and Country Club is now overseeing a collegiate program that is based at the Richmond course. Christine Wong has been named head coach of the Langara Falcons golf team for the coming 2018-19 season. The Richmond native enjoyed a decorated collegiate career at San Diego State University, winning four NCAA tournaments. She is now working her way towards potential-

“It was quite the experience. Coming to the event, I felt pretty good about my game, and I felt really good making the cut and then having a little bit of — you know, having a little bit of impact on the weekend,” he said. “Honestly, all around, I thought I could have played a little better, actually, which is kind of surprising. I think it was a little mediocre out there. But just to be out here and take it all in is an amazing feeling.”
“It’s crazy how many strokes they save not entirely around the greens but kind of the second shots and being in the right places here and there. I found myself in a lot of crazy places. I had to do a lot of crazy math, too, while we’re at it,” he said. “But yeah, it’s just kind of the consistency that they have just going through week in

ly joining the LPGA Tour, heading to qualifying school later this month.
Wong will be overseeing a program that was launched during the 2015-16 season and partnered with a club where she was a prominent junior player before taking her career down south. “I’m really looking forward to working with this team and with
Langara’s staff,” said the McMath graduate. “There’s a lot of promising student-athletes in this cohort, and I’m very excited about the opportunity to work with them.”
As an amateur, Wong was also a member of Golf Canada’s national women’s team and won a pair of B.C. Amateur titles. She earned Mountain West Confer-
ence Player of the year during her stint at San Diego State and made the cut at the U.S. Open back in 2010, ﬁnishing tied for 55th. “We are thrilled to have Christine joining our team,” said Langara’s Director of Athletics and Intramurals Jake McCallum. “Her passion and dedication to the sport of golf will be a welcome addition to the program, and her background as an elite student-athlete will prove invaluable as she heads up the golf program this fall.”

Steveston Athletics fought their way throughh the loser’s bracket, winning ﬁve straight games with no break to capture Softball B.C. Senior “B” Provincial Championship. Photo submitted onships at Steveston-London Park last weekend hoping to medal after a fairly successful season of play in the New West Women’s Fastpitch League. It proved to be much more and they did it the hard way. After the two game round-robin portion of the tournament, Steveston faced Cloverdale to openthe double knockout playoff round. A tough 2-0 loss sent the Athletics to the loser’s bracket. In the late Saturday night game and facing elimination, Steveston defeated Fleetwood 9-4 to stay in the hunt on Sunday.

It would be a daunting task coming up from the losing side of the draw as the Athletics would need to win ﬁve games in a row, without a break between any games, in the stiﬂing heat to capture the gold.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.
The memorable march began at 8 a.m. with a come-frombehind 3-2 triumph over the Richmond Islanders. Brianne Farrall got the pitching win with Karen Bell getting the last out and the save.
At 10 a.m., Lakehill from Victoria gave the girls all they could handle, but Steveston prevailed 2-1 in eight innings. Karen Bell pitched the entire game for the win.

At 2 p.m. and with a medal now guaranteed, Steveston faced the East Kootenay Extreme, with the winner going to the championship game. The Steveston bats came alive with Danica Jayme and Vanessa Fabbro combining for seven hits and six runs en route to an 11-4 mercy-rule win in ﬁve innings. Karen Bell picked up the win on the mound.
The 4 p.m. gold medal game was played in 29C heat with no usual ocean breeze either. Steveston’s opponent was the undefeated South Surrey Thunder. Farrall started her third game of the day and worked into the fourth with her team in front 8-5. Lisa Andrijaszyn came in to pitch for the last two outs of the inning. In the ﬁfth, veteran Karen Bell stepping into the pitching circle. Her team scored a couple runs in the sixth to give the Athletics a 10-6 lead. Bell then shutdown the potent Thunder offence over the next two innings to secure the win and Steveston’s ﬁrst gold medal since the club’s inception in 2015. Head coach Kevin McWilliam, assistant coach and team manager Kevin Lee and assistant coach Denny Irwin were in awe of the performance from their team. “To play nearly 13 consecutive hours of ball in this heat, with no room for error, at the level they played at.. I am speechless,” said McWilliam. “These women are simply amazing. Not once did they show any fear. The heat did not seem to faze them too much, they focused on one out at a time and were almost perfect. There are a lot of bumps and bruises and strains and aches and heat related fatigue...but no one wanted out of the line-up. “We have 14 players on our roster and everyone was available this weekend and every one contributed signiﬁcantly. It would have been impossible to this without all hands on deck.” The Steveston Athletics Women’s Fastpitch team includes : Brianne Farrall, Brittany Shannon, Bryanna Kochems-Speck, Cassidy Ellis, Chantelle Phillips, Clare Slipiec, Danica Jayme, Karen Bell, Kelly Watt, Kyla McWilliam, Leanne Jung, Lisa Andrijaszyn, Meghan Dewar, Vanessa Fabbro and Rosie.

GEDAK, Marianne (Goetz) June 26, 1927 August 01, 2018 It is with deep sadness, that we announce the sudden passing of Marianne; mother, grand-mother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister, sister-inlaw, and friend. She has joined her husband who passed away last September. She is survived by her 2 sons John (Lenora), Bern (Maria), her grandchildren William (Martina), Christie (Robert), Mark (Ashley) and Natasha (Tyler), her great grandchildren Elisa, Jana and Landon. Marianne was predeceased by her parents, her 3 sisters and 2 brothers. She is survived by her brother, Paul Goetz. She was born in June of 1927 in a small town in Romania, one of seven children to German settlers. She grew up on a farm and enjoyed her youth. But that changed as her family was forced to flee their home during World War II. After many years of moving around they arrived at their final destination, Wurzburg, Germany. It was in that small town, that Marianne met Alois and fell in love. They married soon after and had two sons. It was bitter sweet, that August 03, would have been their 71st anniversary. In 1955, the family moved to Canada to join her husband’s parents and his brother and sister. They both found jobs in Richmond, BC and worked very hard to support their family and save for a house, which they soon accomplished. Summers were spent camping and fishing with their sons and their friends. Marianne was dedicated to her family and was always there with a supporting hand. So when her husband and two sons founded the RV Company Get-Away, she was right there beside them again, working hard at any job that was required. After her retirement, Marianne and Alois moved to Tsawwassen, where they enjoyed their house and garden. Flowers in every color were planted and you could find her walking around the yard admiring them. She also had a strong belief in God and Angels and displayed them throughout their home. In her later years she loved to sit in front of the house with Alois and enjoy the sunshine, her garden and reminisce about life. Marianne was loved by her children, grand and great-grandchildren. We will miss her and her prayers, that have kept us safe. Our sincere gratitude goes to the doctors and nurses that took care of her at Delta Hospital. The service will be held at Sacred Heart Church, 3900 Arthur Drive, Ladner BC on August 14, 2018 at 11:00 am. Following, will be a reception gathering in the Parrish Hall. The burial will be held with immediate family only. Condolences may be offered at www.deltafuneral.ca Delta Funeral Home (604) 946-6040
