LETTERS Give us the ‘Coke’ crew Dear Editor, If I had one wish, it would be that the crew that worked on the Coquilhalla Highway recently to get it back up and running for the public would come to Richmond and work on the road construction that’s been ongoing on No. 4 Road for months, taking it down to one lane. And by the looks of things, it’s going to be many months ahead before it’s completed. Half the time you drive by and there are no workers in sight. Typical Richmond road construction.

Coffee shop crowd brews strong COVID concerns Dear Editor, I am an 80-year-old with a very compromised immune system and there are only two restaurants in Steveston that have taken table distancing and barrier construction steps that make me feel comfortable enough to enjoy meals there — especially considering the recent spike in Omicron cases. But as I walk by the coffee shop that used to be our favourite place to relax and chat with people, I see it totally filled with unmasked young people sitting extremely close to one another at tables that are not adequately distanced from each other.

I guess they have no interest in accessing on their ubiquitous laptops

Property investors are not the enemy Dear Editor, Re: “Day: Renters ‘left in the dust’,” Letters, Jan. 20. Coun. Day’s letter is erroneous in two ways. First, it assumes that buyers of the project are all speculators who will leave that residence empty. Apart from those who buy to live in it, there will be buyers who rent out the suites they purchase, thus increasing rental stocks. I’m not talking about quick flip artists but people who invest their savings in housing for the longer term, whether as a future home for themselves or an income and retirement strategy. The second issue is the assumption that investors are the enemy of the people or renters. Every new home in Richmond, including some of the ones publicly funded, is created thanks to investors who take the risk, have the vision and do the work to build in the community. Whether an investor buys a single unit for rent or builds a massive complex, they contribute homes for Richmond residents.

But as my grandfather used to say (he survived the 1918 pandemic that killed millions of people) “You don’t think you’re going to get it until you get it, and then you have to pay attention.”

I can only wonder what they don’t understand about the reasons why there are such high rates of COVID infections in their age groups.

and smartphones the government websites that have graphs and statistics related to such things — maybe because they think all the COVIDrelated stuff really has nothing to do with them.

I look through that coffee shop window and speculate about how many of those young people crowded together at those tightly-packed tables might be forced to have to deal with COVID as part of their lives. Hopefully none, but how confident can we be about that these days?

Police released images of a robbery suspect.

Police seek suspect Mounties in Richmond are appealing to the public to identify a suspect in a series of robberies almost two weeks ago.

Police began receiving reports around 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 15 that a man was entering businesses in and around Richmond Centre and demanding money. According to Richmond RCMP, the suspect made off with some cash after he allegedly produced a weapon in at least one case. No one was hurt in the incidents, according to police. They are looking into whether the same suspect was involved in two similar events reported in

Vancouver later that evening.

The suspect is described as a white male aged 25-30, about five feet, seven to 10 inches tall, with a medium build, pot belly and black beard. He was wearing a black baseball cap with a yellow-coloured logo on it, a navy or black coloured puffy jacket, a white T-shirt with a cartoon figure on it, black pants and black shoes.

IHIT probes quadruple murder Four bodies have been found in a house in Richmond’s city centre area. Homicide investigators say the four people inside the detached home on Garden City Road are victims of a shooting, but are not thought to be connected to the province’s gang conflict. According to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT), it appears to be a targeted shooting. The identities of the victims are not being released at this time, but they are believed to have known each other. IHIT was called in late Tuesday night to investigate what police earlier described as a “serious incident” in the 4500 block of Garden City Road, between Odlin and Alexandra roads, just north of Walmart. Police now believe the shooting actually took place at around 7 p.m. on Monday. Investigators are now looking for witnesses and CCTV. “It is a traumatic incident the community is waking up to,” said Sgt. David Lee of IHIT.

Anyone with information can call Richmond RCMP at 604278-1212, file #2022-1325, or anonymously to Crimestoppers at 604-222-8477.

“Our investigators are scouring the area...We hope to provide the community with answers soon.”

Schools get rapid tests, air purifiers The Richmond School District is getting about 7,000 rapid antigen COVID-19 test kits — two per employee — from the province, for staff experiencing symptoms of the virus. Across the province, 200,000 rapid test kits in total are being sent out to school districts, earmarked for staff, teachers and administrators. The test kits came from Artron Laboratories, a Burnaby-based company, and they are expected to arrive this week. The province has also provided the district with $339,000 to buy air purifiers for all classrooms that don’t have mechani-

cal ventilation. Until now, classrooms without mechanical ventilation systems had their windows open and heat cranked up to keep air circulating to minimize the spread of COVID-19. According to David Sadler, the district’s spokesperson, there has been some “heightening” of staff taking sick leave absences in January. But, he added, they have “workforce planning strategies” in place to allow them to keep instruction going in schools. — Maria Rantanen/ Richmond News

Realtor suspended Valerie Leung

VLEUNG@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

A Vancouver realtor has had her license suspended after forging the signature of her mom’s deceased boyfriend in a Richmond condo sale. According to a consent order released by the BC Financial Services Authority (BCFSA), Renee Genieve Doe Wei Lam, also known as Genie Lam, admitted she “falsified the signature” of her mom’s deceased boyfriend, who was identified as HL, in a Sept. 8, 2016 assignment agreement. The agreement was to transfer a Richmond property, which was bought by HL, to Lam’s mother, who was identified as CL. Lam signed the agreement in HL’s name after he died on Aug. 26, 2016. The BCFSA document stated HL

“was feeling sick” while at CL’s residence on Aug. 26, 2016, but “refused to go to the hospital because he was worried his family would discover the relationship with CL.” The document further mentioned that he had “laid down for a nap and did not wake up.” Lam and her firm, Genie Lam Personal Real Estate Corporation, were each ordered to have their licenses suspended for three months starting Jan. 1, 2022 and are prohibited from acting as an unlicensed assistant during the suspension. The agent was ordered to also pay a penalty fee of $7,500, and enforcement expenses of $1,500 to BCFSA. Lam will also need to complete two Real Estate Institute of Canada courses: Legal Issues in Real Estate and Ethics in Business Practice under the direction of the BCFSA.

School cost balloons

‘Inappropriate’ to comment: MLA The provincial NDP has given the Tilbury LNG plant in Delta the green light to take the next step towards expansion.

It could cost an additional $2.2 million to renovate a new continuing education site after the province told the Richmond School District higher seismic upgrades were needed.

However, Richmond-Steveston NDP MLA Kelly Greene refused to clarify her stance on the project, despite having strenuously opposed it as a Richmond city councillor two years ago.

Last year, the Richmond Board of Education approved $1.3 million to renovate a wing at Mitchell elementary and Rideau Park, moving continuing education to the former. The additional upgrades would bring the total project budget to $3.5 million.

The environmental assessment of the Tilbury expansion project was approved last week by the provincial Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) to move forward.

The wing was assessed as being at a high risk of damage and liquefaction in the event of an earthquake. A report going to the board this week notes the province let the school district know “all public buildings must meet the latest codes and seismic requirements.” Search Mitchell elementary for full story at RichmondNews.com

— Maria Rantanen/News

Greene said this phase is a “process step” — to collect information and determine the timing of the assessment. However, this step will determine how the environmental assessment is done of the FortisBC-owned plant. Greene said it wasn’t appropriate for her to comment on whether the expansion should be approved at this point. “I can’t presuppose any technical review of that, it would be inappropriate for me to do that,” she said, adding the process needs to be “arms-length.” Search Kelly Greene for full story at Richmond-News.com

Lawyer lands yet another suspension Kirsten Clarke KCLARKE@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

Richmond real estate and immigration lawyer Hong Guo has once again been found to have committed professional misconduct. The Law Society of BC says Guo is suspended for one month, starting Feb. 1, after a disciplinary panel found she had committed professional misconduct by failing to ensure clients’ advance payments were deposited into a trust account, and by breaching an interim order that prohibited her from handling trust funds in the first place. The Law Society had asked the panel to suspend Guo for four months and place restrictions on her practice for three years. The society also requested that she practise law only as an employee of a law firm approved by the governing body’s executive director and not handle or be able to authorize any trust transactions, and not be responsible for any bookkeeping or maintaining financial records.

However, the panel decided to impose a one-month suspension after looking at Guo’s “professional misconduct history” and mitigating factors, including the “modest amount” of the trust funds, which totalled $2,740.

The panel also noted in its decision that Guo has been under “significant practice conditions” since 2017, which ban her from operating a trust account and require her to practise under supervision for at least another year. Guo, meanwhile, said that the “gravity of her offence” was low, according to the decision, as she mishandled small amounts of money for only a few days at a time in each case, and none of her clients suffered any harm. She said a reprimand or, at most, a modest fine, would be justified. She also said that the four-month suspension sought by the Law Society would “kill” her practice and if the conditions were imposed, no other lawyer would take her on as an employee. Guo also argued that the Law Society’s discipline process should be modified in her case because it is systemically biased against her as a female,

Last year, in a separate matter, the panel found Guo committed professional misconduct by failing to supervise her employees, failing to comply with trust accounting rules, and leaving a series of blank signed trust cheques with her bookkeeper, which facilitated the bookkeeper’s theft of $7.5 million of client trust funds. Hong Guo has been suspended for one month. File photo Asian lawyer and that she should only be suspended if the Law Society could prove that, if she weren’t, there would be harm to the public. However, the panel said it concluded the one-month suspension was necessary to protect the public and that Guo’s record establishes that she has “repeatedly failed to comply with Law Society regulation regarding trust matters in the past.” Furthermore, she “failed to establish that the discipline process is biased against Asian-Canadian lawyers like

The panel also found last year that Guo had misappropriated trust funds from some clients, in order to replace funds missing from other clients’ trust accounts that were needed to complete pending real estate transactions. While the Law Society had asked for the ultimate disposal of disbarment in that matter, the panel decided to suspend Guo for one year. That suspension was then deferred after the Law Society — which is independent of its own disciplinary panel — asked for a review of the panel’s decision. The Law Society told the Richmond News last Thursday that a date for the review board hearing has not yet been set.

Entrepreneurs named to Vancouver’s most influencial list Nono Shen NSHEN@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

Two Richmond entrepreneurs have been named among Vancouver’s 50 most influential people, according to Vancouver Magazine’s annual rankings. And Arran and Ratana Stephens, founders of Richmond-

based Nature’s Path — a family-owned producer of organic food with 500 employees — believe putting employees high in the pecking order is at the root of their continued success.

They have been offering a $2 an hour raise to each team member since the beginning of the pandemic, read the Vancouver Magazine. The couple, who made to the

list at number 46, has also installed virus-destroying ultraviolet lights at their three plants for their employees.

In addition to taking care of employees’ health, in the past year alone, Nature’s Path has donated $3 million to Vancouver General Hospital’s Withdrawal Management Centre and another $1 million to establish the Stephens Family Fellowship in Gastroenterology.

Meanwhile, Stanley Park’s coyotes were also spotted on the Power 50 list after “successfully pressuring the Park Board to close up Vancouver’s biggest park in early September.”

“Attacking innocent civilians in broad daylight so frequently that humans are banned for a month from experiencing the woods or seawall? That’s what we call a power play,” read the introduction about coyotes

in Vancouver Magazine.

The annual list compiles the 50 most influential people in the city who are “change-makers and power players shaping our world in 2022,” read the Vancouver Magazine. For more information about the Power 50 list, go to https:// www.vanmag.com/Vanmags2022-Power-50-List#fortyone

65-foot-high Indigenous art unveiled on No. 3 Road Maria Rantanen MRANTANEN@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

A tarp was pulled off a six-storey high public art piece made by Musqueam artist Thomas Cannell last week, revealing Pacific Northwest Indigenous symbols at the corner of a building on No. 3 Road. “It’s the first time I’ve been this close to it, I can’t believe how tall it is,” Cannell said at the event. “Six storeys sound like a lot, but when you stand under it, it’s just mind-blowing.” “Sea to Sky,” at 65 feet high, is a mosaic of fish, whales, eagles, salmon and humans “puzzled together under the banner of the sun, moon and stars,” explained Cannell of his four-year-long endeavour, a triangular-shaped piece of art that fits into the angular corner of The Paramount, at No. 3 and Cook roads. “The design features traditional iconography of the Pacific Northwest and the teachings and culture of my ancestors in a story-like window into the visceral world,” Cannell said.

Describing the various elements integrated into the art piece, Cannell said the eagle — a “sacred, wise and noble creature” — at the top symbolizes power and prestige. The salmon is a symbol of abundance, wealth and prosperity as the primary food source of the Musqueam and other Pacific Northwest nations. “Salmon legends speak of dependability and renewal, representing the cycle of life,” he told the crowd of over a hundred that had come to the art reveal. Blue and green have been blended to show where the sea meets the sky, he added. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Cannell felt it was important to show with his artwork the similarity between animals and humans, that being their desire to be together for “safety, security, for a sense of community.” “I hope through kindness, familiarity and compassion, we can be a community, connected by unwavering peace during times of hardship and separation — this should be all of our number-

one goal,” Cannell said. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie pointed out much of the density in the city centre has been a result of the arrival of the Canada Line. But, he added, an important component is public art that’s integrated into developments like The Paramount. “We rely on famous and well-known and respected artists like you, Mr. Cannell, who will bring that project to life, to give it interest, something that will be a showcase for this building for generations to come,” Brodie said. The Paramount was built by Keltic Canada, which has just bought 27 acres of industrial land near the Oval that they hope to develop into a mixeduse neighbourhood. They also have developments in Vancouver, North Vancouver and Burnaby. The Paramount includes 27 affordable units for women and their children as well as senior women, run by the YWCA. Keltic Canada is owned by Anna Wang.

The Blue Cabin will house artists-in-residents. This year, there will be three artists using the facility: Musqueam artist Debra Sparrow, Richmond-based artist Keely O’Brien and Germany-based Chilean artist Michelle-Marie Letelier.

MRANTANEN@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

An artist’s studio known as “The Blue Cabin” — originally situated in North Vancouver — was floated into Steveston Monday and will become part of Richmond’s arts programming over the next two years.

Based at Imperial Landing in Steveston, it will allow artists to “learn, explore and engage with Steveston’s history, the Fraser River ecology and the foreshore,” said Brodie in the press release.

The 1,200-square-foot, 170-ton structure was towed by tug boat through False Creek — where it had been moored for two and a half years — into the Strait of Georgia, passing around Point Grey and Iona Terminus, then heading up the Fraser River on its seven-hour journey to Steveston.

The Blue Cabin was brought to Steveston Monday by a tug and will be there for about two years. Photo submitted

The original cabin has been secured on a barge and another structure is built behind it that is meant as sleeping quarters for artists. However, living aboard is not allowed at Imperial Landing, so this space might be used for programming.

Three Vancouver-based arts organizations—Creative Cultural Collaborations (C3), grunt gallery and Other Sights for Artists’ Projects—came together in 2014 to remediate the cabin and transform it into a mobile artist residency that provides a unique perspective on Metro Vancouver from the water and a venue for dialogue and exchange among coastal artists and communities.

Lion dance steeped in history and tradition Valerie Leung

VLEUNG@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

Eugenia Chau is a Richmond member of the Vancouver Chinese Lion and Dragon Dance Team.

“The lion dance is a symbolic icon of Lunar New Year and it can’t be replaced.” Eugenia Chau, a Richmond member of the Vancouver Chinese Lion and Dragon Dance Team, said the lion dance is a symbol of bringing in good luck and prosperity to people and businesses while driving away evil spirits as the new year approaches. “The lion dance is part of a tradition we have done many years ago, even before the Qing Dynasty,” said Chau. “It’s a way to help start the new year for many people and bring joy and luck to the community.” According to Chau, the lion dance came to be when a monster named Nian would terrorize villages and eat all their crops and livestock, leaving villagers helpless and praying to the gods for help.

selves from the monster.

As an answer to their cries for help, a lion was sent to protect the villagers and their properties by scaring the monster away, before returning to heaven.

The most common lion seen in Richmond and Metro Vancouver is the southern lion, which resembles an actual lion and is often portrayed in various colours.

Following this, villagers used bamboo and paper mache to make puppets that looked like the lion head, wore big costumes and danced to mimic the lion to protect them-

Chau told the Richmond News there are two types of lions, the northern and southern, which have evolved since the early years.

The southern lion costume comes in three colours to represent the generals of the Three Kingdoms of China: gold

or yellow with white bristles, to represent Liu Bei, the oldest general and a descendent of the emperor’s bloodline; a red face with black bristles to represent the general Guan Yu; and an almost all black lion representing the youngest general Zhang Fei. Chau added that more colours were incorporated in the lion dance costumes over the years, but the black lion dance costume is often used when martial arts schools want to challenge and fight another school.

When it comes to the costume, the lion head is the heaviest and most expensive part, according to Chau, who has been performing lion dances for the past 20 years. Because the heads are all handcrafted, and depending on the layers of material used, an adult-sized lion head can weigh about 12 to 15 pounds, while a lighter one is roughly six to seven pounds. Lion heads can range from $500 to $3,000 (US), depending on the materials used and who crafted them. Ceremonies Lion dances, drums, cymbals and firecrackers are the highlight of many traditional ceremonies, especially during the new year or even grand openings of businesses. But before a new lion comes out to celebrate, 13 there is a dotting ceremony that must be done,

“In the beginning, a new lion is supposed to do an eye-dotting ceremony, which symbolizes giving the lion a spirit and have it come to life,” said Chau.

Performing the lion dance may look easy, but training and trust are the two most crucial things martial artists need in each other to perform it well, according to Chau.

Red powdered mineral paint is used to dot the eyes, forehead, nose and mouth of the lion head. Then it is used to paint from the horns to the tail, the ears and the four legs.

The lion dance is a partner-based performance and, depending if the partners are placed in the head or the tail, synchronization of the acrobatic and martial arts moves is paramount to getting the act right.

Afterwards, a red ribbon is tied onto the horn and two golden flowers are placed on each side of the horn. Once the lion head is “given life” the lettuce ceremony and lion dance can be performed. This ceremony follows the story of a lion waking up and trying to find food. Lettuce is normally hung at the entrance of businesses and the lion “eats” the lettuce and throws or spits it back out to the store owners or VIP guests.

“The back or tail person has specific moves where they have to lift the person in front of them,” said Chau. “You need trust in your partner in order to perform the lion dance.” Chau told the Richmond News the team takes its training and upholding the lion dance tradition very seriously. “This is our iconic symbol to celebrate Lunar New Year and we want to let other families and cultures know that this is what we do and why we do it.”

Tiger considered the ‘king of all beasts’ in the zodiac Valerie Leung

VLEUNG@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

Many animals hold deep meaning in a country’s culture and the tiger is no different. The tiger is considered the king of all beasts and represents “powerful energy,” according to website ChineseNewYear. net. They are considered an animal associated with the sun and are often portrayed in art correlated to summer and fire. This animal symbolizes vigour, ambition, courage, enthusiasm, self-confidence and a commitment to help others. According to legend, the tiger and other animals participated in “The Great Race” that determined how the 12 zodiacs were chosen. The tiger came in third, after the rat and the ox, despite its confidence in its speed. Unlike the other animals, the tiger took part in the race by itself, because of its indepen-

dent nature. It is believed most people born in the Year of the Tiger like to act alone and are optimistic and enthusiastic. Because the tiger is also associated to the Chinese god of wealth, Tsai Shen Yeh, the god is often seen sitting on a tiger in Asian art. Asian folklore considered the tiger as the protector of the dead. There are often symbols of tigers marked on graves as a sign of protection and peace for those who have passed away. Some families also hang images of a tiger or even have a tiger embroidered on their clothing as a way to ward off any harm.

This year, Foo is sharing his spicy tiger prawns with pineapple recipe, a dish that can be served as an entrée on its own. “I thought this year I will have a very simple and easy-to-follow recipe for the Year of the Tiger,” said Foo. “I’ve had many readers come to me saying they love the Chinese New Year recipes, but remark there are either too many ingredients or instructions to follow.” And simplicity is what Foo kept in mind with his seven-ingredient prawn recipe. This year’s dish is filled with colours of red and yellow. According to Foo, red — represented by the red sauce and prawns — is a very

“Chinese New Year is the time when I particularly miss my family and hometown. That’s why I will be cooking Yunnan ghost chicken salad and a new golden chestnut pastry that I have designed,” said Zhang. The Yunnan ghost chicken salad has won numerous awards for Zhang, which even improved the ranking of her restaurant — Street Auntie Aperitivo House in Vancouver — to 70th in Canada’s 100 best restaurants, according to Zhang, who will be cooking from a Richmond kitchen when going online. “I am happy to share the secrets behind

“Besides that, many people have turned to baking and cooking over the past two years. Now it’s time to test your culinary skills and try some new recipes,” said Yu.

YEAR OF THE TIGER

Sherman Tai marks your lunar calendar Sherman Tai CONTRIBUTOR

In the Year of Tiger, many well-known financial and political experts in the market are extremely optimistic that the global economy and people’s livelihood will recover

from the pandemic and return to the right track. However, I hold a different point of view, as 2022 is a year of difficulty. A tiger is deemed the king of the beasts as they are known to rush into the forest and start a battle. This implies that 2022, the year of tiger, is full of turmoil and distress.

Let us do our best and hope that everyone can be brave and strong like a tiger — fight stubbornly and be determined to overcome difficulties. Looking back to 2021, the global economy was in a big trap due to the pandemic. The pandemic has affected tens of millions of people, while some have lost loved ones. Small businesses are still struggling and suffering serious losses. The economy is also staggering as stocks and finan-

Sherman Tai makes new year predictions. Photo submitted cial markets have been affected by people using government-subsidized money as well as cryptocurrency to repeatedly hit new highs, causing overpriced asset trading. The real economy and the virtual economy are running against each other. There will be major changes in the world economy and politics in the Year of Tiger. Many obstacles, struggles, falsehoods, political subversion, and wars and chaos will appear. Fortunately, we can sail through the storm. For those born after the first spring day (of the lunar calendar) on Feb. 4, 2022, their zodiac sign is considered a tiger. In the second half of the year, the pace of global economic growth will slowly pick up. Although there are still a lot of quarrels, we will see the opportunity in difficult times. In the rapidly changing world, one should become more agile and flexible. Look before you leap — one should think carefully about the possible results or consequences before doing something. There is a Chinese saying that goes “One good turn deserves another.” Always remember to perform good deeds and accumulate merit. When you are facing difficulties, try handling the situations with a calm demeanor. Be conservative and don’t rush to make any decisions. When you keep a positive attitude and persist through challenges, your efforts will pay off.

YEAR OF THE TIGER Art show, giveaway to mark Lunar New Year

A Richmond photographer has traded her camera for acrylic paints to mark Lunar New Year.

Kerri-Jo Stewart, who opened a gallery in north Richmond last year, is working on a special collection featuring each of the Chinese Zodiac animals and will unveil the paintings at a live, virtual art show on Feb. 1. She said there will also be a giveaway draw to win one of the paintings, a tiger created for the Year of the Tiger. Stewart said she painted the 16x20” red and gold tiger painting using an “acrylic pour” technique — meaning no brushwork was involved. The tiger is painted in a similar style to her horse paintings, she said, inspired by “cave man” art. “The lines, although simple, seemed to have so much expression in them,” said Stewart. “So, with Lunar New Year coming up, I thought it would be great to paint the tiger like that. And once I did a few of them, I thought I’d like to try to do a series of the entire Chinese Zodiac.”

Kerri-Jo Stewart will give away this painting In addition to the tiger painting she is giving away, Stewart said two more 16x20” tiger paintings will be available for sale during her virtual show, along with the rest of the Chinese Zodiac animals. People can enter for the giveaway — the winner will be announced during the art show — and sign up for the virtual art show on Stewart’s website, www.kj.studio. The virtual, live art show will start at 7 p.m. on Feb. 1. —Kirsten Clarke/Richmond News

YEAR OF THE TIGER

What does the Chinese zodiac have for you? Whether a rat, an ox or a rabbit, there’s something for everyone Rat (Zodiac years: 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020) The year of the tiger marks a year of transformation for those born in the year of the rat. The key to your success this year is to simply drop the things that no longer serve you so you can make room for new things to help reinvent yourself. This year will be what you make of it — you’ll get as much as you put in.

Those born in the year of the tiger will experience great transformations, which are predicted to come twice — once in the spring and once in the summer. These transformations will cause you to rethink what’s important, which is a great time to re-evaluate your priorities in life. Take things easy and enjoy your time with loved ones! Lucky numbers – 1, 3, 4 Lucky colours – orange, white, grey, blue

Lucky numbers – 3, 2 Lucky colours – green, blue, gold

Rabbit (1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023)

Ox (1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021) Persistent and determined, those born in the year of the ox are definitely not afraid of hard work. Those who persevere will see positive changes in business and in their financial situation but don’t overwork yourselves because it might cause serious health problems. Instead, prioritize self-care, and surround yourself with people who love you — your family, friends and partner. Take a break from work. You deserve it. Lucky numbers – 1, 9

The year of the tiger brings lots of surprises for the rabbit! You might discover new, hidden talents that’ll help you with personal or professional success, which in turn will result in recognition for your efforts and talents. If there’s another refrain for rabbits in 2022, it’s to save, save, save. Refrain from large purchases and keep a check on your spending! Lucky numbers – 3, 4, 9 Lucky colours – dark yellow, white, dark brown Dragon

Lucky colours – yellow, purple, blue

Big year ahead for the snakes and the horses... good at that — you’ve mastered the art of dignity and patience. And if you haven’t quite mastered that yet, don’t worry — you’ll have lots of opportunity to practice this year.

22

Don’t ignore your health though; be sure to take care of yourself first and foremost — mentally and physically. Lucky numbers — 1, 7, 6 Lucky colours – Silver, gold, light gray Snake (1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025) Large-scale plans, improved financial condition and strong relationships mark the year of the tiger for those born in the year of the snake. However, this year will also be full of unforeseen changes and serious trials, so be sure to carve out time for self-care and reach out to your friends for support.

ALL-NEW PROGRAM FROM NEW YORK WITH LIVE ORCHESTRA

Lucky numbers – 2, 8, 9 Lucky colours – black, red, light yellow Horse (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026) The tiger helps those born in the year of the horse with creative achievements, new love experiences and financial success. All the effort horses have put into their work won’t go unnoticed — management and superiors will acknowledge it and reward you appropriately. But make sure you don’t overburden yourself by trying to solve all your problems at once! This is the year where you can break old habits, and try new, fun, exciting things. Lucky numbers – 3, 4, 0 Lucky colours – red, green, purple

YEAR OF THE TIGER Roosters should be careful, but Dogs, take a leap of faith 23

Ram

(1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027) Although the year of the tiger marks a year of change for those born in the year of the ram, there’s no telling if it’s good or bad change — that’s entirely up to the ram. It’ll depend on whether rams are able to maintain a positive, optimistic outlook on life. The more rams are able to keep their pessimistic attitude in check, the more rewards they’ll be able to reap this year. Lucky numbers — 2, 7 Lucky colours — purple, green, red Monkey (1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028) The year of the tiger’s a great one for those born in the year of the monkey to learn a new skill or to master ones you have in your skillset. 2022 also promises a favourable time for growth and professional development and growth. Don’t be afraid of new adventures as something great might come of it! Lucky numbers — 1, 7, 8 Lucky colours — white, blue, amber Rooster (1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029) The phrase “things happen for a reason” has never been truer for those born in the year of the rooster. But don’t take it as a negative! Sometimes, past failures can set you up for success in future endeavours, especially if you’ve learned from them. This year, roosters are advised to think before they act — set your priorities and solve current problems before tackling new ones. Lucky numbers — 5, 7, 8 Lucky colours — yellow, brown, bronze, gold Dog (1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030) If the year of the ox had those born in the year of the dog feel like they were getting stuck in a rut, or spinning their wheels, the year of the tiger promises to snap you right out of it. The tiger promises a year full of love, adventures and creative solutions. Take a leap of faith and let life surprise you. Lucky numbers — 3, 4, 9 Lucky colours — red, green, purple Pig (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031) The year of the tiger brings positive changes for those born in the year of the pig. This year promises successful execution of overdue plans. Lots of opportunities will come

your way and be sure to jump on them to reap the benefits, but don’t be too quick to make decisions — take your time to think through the opportunities to see if they’ll benefit

you in the long run. Lucky numbers — 2, 5, 8 Lucky colours — brown, gold, yellow, grey

Are you sure your Representation Agreement says what you want?

Introduction

In 2011, after years of consultation and consideration, our Provincial Government proclaimed new legislation, in connection with Adult Guardianship. The Power of Attorney and the Representation Agreement were, let me say, formally changed. The Power of Attorney, as we know it today, is strictly for the management of financial affairs of a person. Meanwhile, the Representation Agreement is made only for the management of a person’s health care (including their “end of life” preferences and management). More and more people are making Representation Agreements, owing partly to a greater awareness among British Columbians of the availability of Representation Agreements as a means of assisting in the management of their care. However, while it may well be easy to tell a Lawyer what you want in a Representation Agreement, it is quite another question what may happen when the time comes to actually rely on what is stated in the Agreement. It is worthy of a deeper look. Physician Experience Dr. Daniela J. Lamas is a critical care Physician in Boston. She is also a really incisive writer on medical issues. Earlier this month, she wrote (in the New York Times) an article, addressing the complexity of the management of a person’s health care. A patient of Dr. Lamas’ made an “Advance Directive” (which is fairly similar to a Representation Agreement here). Her patient had, for years, warned her family that she did not ever want to be intubated (she’d had that experience as a child and was determined never to have to go through that ever again). In her Advance Directive, made a few years ago, she stated that she did not want a breathing tube. In her late 60’s now, she recently contracted pneumonia and was brought in to emergency, struggling to breathe. The Doctors called her Husband and asked whether to intubate. The Husband hesitated! He was not able to put it to his wife, in the situation, so he told the medical staff to intubate. She was and then was moved into intensive care. Dr. Lamas, at her patient’s bedside, mumbled an apology. She knew this is not what the patient had wanted. After a few days, the medical team at the Hospital met with the patient’s family, looking to make a plan. The medical team would try to treat the pneumonia, and get her off the breathing tube. The family seemed to accept that plan.. The breathing tube was eventually removed but a few days later, the patient was intubated again and a tracheotomy (a procedure where a hole is cut in a person’s throat area, in order to ease the breathing process) was performed. The patient spent a month in a struggle. It was about the opposite of what was expressed in the patient’s Advance Directive. Commentary With this particular patient, I have to presume that her family may have felt she was too young to “want to die”, despite the Advance Directive expressing that very wish. Regardless, the concern remains. Why did the family not comply with the wishes expressed after the person went through the trouble to make an Advance Directive? Is there something wrong with the “system”? In B.C., in my opinion, Representation Agreements are still “new”. I have had experience where medical staff allowed medical decisions to be made under a Power of Attorney. There may be practical reasons for this but that kind of step does not really comply with the law. There has simply not been enough time nor exposure to these documents for treating professionals to become more accustomed. I expect that in some instances, medical staff may not have time to inquire whether a person in Emergency has even made an Agreement. That is a current problem. I have also heard of instances where staff have not complied with Representation Agreements and have made medical decisions on their own, including where the appointed persons could not be reached.. An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, by Dr. R. Sean Morrison (a Palliative care specialist), in which he reviewed more than 60 recent studies, concluded that even with advance care planning having been done, the documents had no impact on whether the patients received the care they wanted. A practical issue, here, is whether the document made was in the patient’s chart or whether the medical staff otherwise knew of it having been made. More important than this, however, is the critical point Dr. Lamas makes in her article: “…the bigger obstacle, and what has increasingly troubled me working in the intensive care unit, is the difficulty of asking people to make decisions about future scenarios. … It is easy for people to say that they would rather die than live with significant limitations, pain or dependence on others. But people evolve in ways they cannot expect. This is why some survivors of catastrophic accidents, come to rate their quality of life as good - even if they never would have imagined being able to do so before the accident. As a result, what people are willing to go through to extend their life might change depending on the context. Advance directives (here, in B.C., Representation Agreements) written at one point in time about hypothetical scenarios cannot capture what someone actually wants at every point in the future”. Dr. Lamas feels that people need to choose the right Representative, and have the full conversations with that Representative about their wishes. I agree. It is not easy to choose a Representative. It may be a spouse, an adult child, a sibling or a friend. Because the chosen representative may one day need to tell a medical staff person to take the extreme step, that representative needs to be the best person for the job (and be willing to make sure it is enforced)!

Another rising star in Richmond figure skating took home a spot in the top 10 at the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships this month. Seventeen-year-old Liam Kapeikis, with the Connaught Skating Club, competed against other skaters in the senior men’s category at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. “My initial goal going into the competition was just to be in the top 10, so ranking seven for me was an amazing accomplishment, so I’m really happy about it,” Kapeikis told the Richmond News. “It’s been one of my biggest dreams to be able to go to the U.S. Nationals at the senior level and skate like I did.” Kapeikis added that competing in front of a live audience made it one of the best

When asked what the most difficult part of the competition was, he said it was maintaining his energy and finishing his program at the end. However, he credited the audience for his success at the U.S. Nationals. “The audience really helped me...they gave me energy by being so supportive and cheering me on. I’m most proud of that because I was able to end the program at full-speed and full-energy and it really helped my score come up higher.” Kapeikis will be heading to Boston for a figure skating camp in the upcoming week, which will determine if he’ll be competing in the Junior Worlds Championship in Bulgaria in March.

REMEMBRANCES OBITUARIES

GLAISTER, David December 2, 1954 − December 22, 2021 I’m very sad to announce the passing of my brother, David Glaister, on December 22, 2021, as a result of complications from diabetes (type 1). David fought the valiant fight against the worst kind of diabetes, the kind that was very difficult to control, even after the strictest compliance with the various regimes the doctors prescribed. In the last two years of his life, when David spent much of it in the hospital, his diabetes was virtually unmanageable. Earlier, in his 40’s, David’s kidneys failed. However, I can honestly say that the happiest, most fulfilling time of both my life and David’s, was when I gave David a new kidney. It worked like a charm and gave both David and me a renewed zest for life. That was over 18 years ago, and it never quit, not until the very end. David was always a snappy dresser and had both a love and a knack for selling men’s clothes. But only the highest quality, most expensive haberdashery would do! David’s claim to fame was when he managed a British Importers store in The Empress in Victoria. He met quite a few famous people there, of which his favourite was Bob Hope (even though Mr. Hope only purchased a pair of gloves − other famous people left the store with much lighter pockets). Later, David worked in the film business and had many fun times with additional celebrities including, Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, and Johnny Depp. Eventually, though, he returned to his first love of selling men’s clothes, from which he ultimately had to retire due to his health. David considered that one of his personal accomplishments was when he climbed Mt. Vesuvius in Italy in 40−degree heat. He’d missed the bus going up but was determined to get to the top. There, he used his sales charm to hitch a ride back down the mountain to his hotel with other tourists who’d rented a car. He said it was a fantastic day. David’s other athletic pursuits included hockey when he was a kid, then scuba diving, then skiing and golf, all of which he enjoyed as pastimes. David never married, but with his good looks, he always had a girlfriend (or two). David was predeceased by our father, Tom and mother, Blanche. He is survived by me and his sister, Nancy. A celebration of life will be held for both David and our mother, Blanche, next summer, depending on Covid restrictions. Blanche (nee Dorsett) passed away a year ago, on December 15, 2020, but her celebration has also been delayed due to Covid.

GREENWOOD, John March 26, 1934 - January 08, 2022 John was taken from us on Saturday, January 8, 2022. His loving wife of 51 years held him dearly with family watching over as he slipped away peacefully. John is survived by his wife Gloria, sons Marten Varnel (Lynn) and Rob Varnel (Carmen), daughters Korenna Varnel and Lavana Varnel (Manjeet), sister Winnie Potts (Gerry), grandchildren; Normon, Alixe, Doni, Tamarah, Rhyon, Daken, Jhyrod and 3 great grand-children, Brooke, Nolan and Anastasia. Predeceased by his Dad, Jim Ford, his step-Dad and Mother, Frank and Georgina Greenwood, his brothers, Reg and Tom, and sister Blanche.

Following his early retirement from the BC Public Service Safety Branch, John enjoyed serving as director of ANAVETS Housing in Steveston and was active with the ANAF #284 Steveston Branch. He enjoyed his volunteer work with the Unit on social activities and in particular, playing Santa at the annual Children events. Golf and Travel with Gloria and friends was always very special to him. Family gatherings with grand-children and friends were all happy times. We invite you to visit https://www.myalternatives.ca/abbotsford/obituari es/2022-greenwood-john and share your memories. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice in John’s memory. Post Covid, an outdoor celebration of John’s life is being planned. We wish to acknowledge and thank the nurses, doctors, and caregivers at the Parkview Tertiary Residence for the loving care John got while in their care. 604-857 5779

Cam passed away peacefully in his sleep at his family home on December 30th at the age of 93 due to a health−related complication. He was a devoted husband to his wife Ruth and a loving father to his daughter Denise and son Corey. Loved by Shirley (Don), their children Jason (Megan), Jennifer (Colin), and Andrew (Theresa), and eight wonderful grandchildren. Remembered by Phyllis and Linda (Bill). He will be missed by his in −laws Jean, John and Shelia, Art, and Mae. He is survived by his nieces and nephews Anne, Brent, Byron, Gordon, Helen, Joan, John, Kelly, Ken, Patti, Rodney, Shelly, and Valerie. He was predeceased by Bill, Dave, and Marion, and his nephew Len. Cam was predeceased by his loving mother and father Corey and Delpha Moore. Cam received a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of BC in 1965. Cam taught elementary school for 41 years in Richmond (38), Princeton (1), and Surrey (1), BC. Cam’s true passion was with the Steveston Japanese community starting in the late 1950s. Cam took his family and friends on all kinds of adventures, includinge camping, fishing, hiking, hockey and skiing. Cam continued to ski until he was eighty years of age. He loved people, mountains, and animals. Cam always wanted to make sure everyone was happy. He was a kind, loving, generous gentleman. He was a humble and compassionate husband, father and dear friend. He taught us about unconditional love and shared his belief in having eternal life (John 3:16). It was a blessing to have Cam in all of our lives. We’re proud of Cam as our father, husband and cherished best friend. There will be no service due to the pandemic restrictions. Our thanks go out to the many condolences we received over the last two weeks. They were such a comfort to us. If you wish, donations to the Daybreak Point Bible Camp Society, Anvil Island, BC, in memory of James Cameron Moore would be appreciated. www.anvilisland.ca/donate
