Richmond ‘rows’ its way into Guinness World Records Title officially handed to city after 180 participants broke record for most singing nursery rhyme relay The 10th Annual Richmond Maritime Festival has officially row, row, rowed its way into the Guinness World Record To see books. a video The record of the book’s head record office in London, being set U.K. recently confirmed the Richmond Maritime Festival achieved a new Guinness World Record under the category of “Most people in a nursery rhyme singing relay.” “This is another great example highlighting Richmond on the international stage,” said Mayor Malcolm
Brodie. “Each participant, along with everyone in our community, should be proud of this record-breaking achievement. We can now proudly say we are part of an elite group of Guinness World Records title holders.” To launch this year’s Maritime Festival, 180 participants gathered at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site on Friday, Aug. 9 to sing Row, Row, Row Your Boat. Each person had to sing just one word of the song. As a group, the participants had to sing the song repeatedly in correct sequence with no mistakes and in time to musical accompaniment.
Popular comedian David C. Jones entertained the crowd as emcee while official local judges, Richmond’s own Olympic rowing silver medalist Darcy Marquardt and seven-time Olympic judo judge Jim Kojima, presided over the event. After a few practice rounds, the singers sailed to victory by completing the task without any missteps and on tempo — smashing the previous nursery rhyme relay record of 154 participants. An official Guinness World Record certificate confirming the Richmond Maritime Festival’s status is on its way to Richmond.

Richmond Food Bank workers sort food in boxes and bags. Food banks were supposed to be a temporary measure but are now part of the landscape. All levels of government have abdicated responsibility on poverty, said Whalen. And, instead of raising wages, she said there is far too much reliance on food banks to feed needy families. “The minimum wage of $10.25 an hour is not going to feed a family,” she added. “If they’re having to spend so much money on rent, then something’s got to give and it’s usually the
food. “There’s a systemic problem that can only be fixed by the people who we put in power. “We’re trying to move from charity to justice, because people have the right to feed their kids properly.” A national poverty action plan is the main recommendation in “Poverty Trends Highlights: Canada 2013,” a report by Citizens for Public Justice.
MDA on a mission to Mars
Richmond firm will provide the drive system for the rover vehicle in the ExoMars 2018 program.
Richmond high-tech firm MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (MDA) is on a mission to Mars. Last week, the European Space Agency announced the company will provide the drive system for the rover vehicle in the ExoMars 2018 program. The rover’s main task will be to search for evidence of life, past or present, beneath

the surface of the Red Planet. “After landing on the Martian surface it will be MDA’s contribuScan tion that gets the for a mission rolling video to undertake surface operations,” said MDA’s Don Osborne, Vice President responsible for this business at MDA. The value of MDA’s contract is approximately $2.5
million. The ExoMars program will send several spacecraft to Mars on two launches. First up in 2016 are the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) and EDM stationary lander. The stationary lander will map the sources of methane on Mars and other gases, and in doing so, help select the landing site for the ExoMars rover to be launched in 2018.
Mounties are probing a suspected arson at a packaging firm after two men dressed in black were seen running away from the scene. Richmond FireRescue called in police at around 10 p.m. last Thursday to the Brighouse West Business Park at 6691 Elmbridge Way after hearing reports of the men running away from CFC Packaging. A preliminary investigation by the fire department and the RCMP arson team also uncovered an accelerant they suspect was used to start the fire. On Tuesday, one of the company’s large cargo doors was boarded up, but smoke-stained blackened edges could be seen behind. The investigation team is also trying to track down video surveillance of the area. Richmond RCMP’s Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said on Tuesday that the investigation is still in its early stages and asked for anyone with information to come forward and call 604 278 1212 or Crimestoppers anonymously at 1 800 222 8477. CFC Packaging makes the likes of plastic bags, protective packaging, pizza and cake boxes, foam trays and flowerpots, distributing them across North America.

Discrimination disguised as tradition doesn’t wash BY CHERYL CHAN The Province
The smell of freshly steamed buns wafted through the air at a Richmond Chinese bakery. An impatient lineup stretched out to the pavement. Suddenly, an elderly Mandarin-speaking woman elbowed in to the front of the line. Scan “These mainlanders,” sniffed a for the complete woman to her companion in Hokkien, story and a Chinese dialect usually spoken by to post people from China’s Fujian province comments and other southeast Asian countries like Singapore, Taiwan and the Philippines. “They don’t know how to behave.” The pair then launched into a whispered tirade about how mainland Chinese people were country bumpkins with no class or nouveau riche who dress in designer labels. “It’s not really their fault,” the companion said magnanimously. “What do you expect, living all those years under Communist rule?” The exchange, rife with stereotypes, was overheard by a journalist a few months ago. It is not uncommon. To an outsider’s eyes, the Lower Mainland’s ChineseCanadian community might seem homogeneous. But within this community there are invisible divisions marked by differences in language, countries of origin, class, politics, values, even length of time in Canada. According to the 2011 census, about 432,680 people in Metro Vancouver, or almost 19 per cent, identified themselves as having Chinese ethnicity. Most Chinese immigrants are from Hong Kong, and more recently, mainland China. But there are also many ethnic Chinese from countries such as Taiwan, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. Among residents who report having a Chinese mother tongue, 138,845 say they speak Cantonese, which is the dialect from Hong Kong and

Guangzhou province. About 96,400 speak Mandarin, predominantly spoken in mainland China and Taiwan, while another 125,580 speak a Chinese language not specified, which, according to Statistics Canada, could also include Hakka, Taiwanese, Chaochow, Fukien and Shanghainese. David Wong, a Vancouver-born architect, is sensitive to these invisible divides. Seven years ago, he started an irreverent blog in a fit of fury, after what he saw as politicians pandering to new immigrants and neglecting Chinese-Canadians who have lived in B.C. for generations. The blog, called The Ugly Chinese Canadian, explores the “unspoken thoughts and politics within the Asian-North American community” from “a ‘banana’s’ perspective.” One entry riffs on tensions between Hong Kong Chinese, who came over in great waves before the 1997 Hong Kong hando-
ver, and the newly wealthy mainland Chinese, who are now the most populous immigrants arriving in B.C. “We assume H.K. expats do not like being outdone by the wealth flaunted by their once impoverished mainland brethren,” it said. “And golly, are these once back-country yokel farmers without taste! There isn’t a day we (don’t) hear H.K.ers complain of how loud and obnoxious the new mainlanders are.” It echoes similar tensions simmering in Hong Kong, where locals complain about mainlanders jaywalking, spitting, cutting in line and eating on the subway; of pregnant women flocking to their hospitals to give birth, taking up precious medical resources; and of wealthy investors driving up realestate prices (sound familiar?) Despite the tone of the blog, Wong said the fractures within the community sadden him. “It breaks my heart to see,” he said. “It’s not healthy ... to dislike a certain group because of their characteristics.” Wong acknowledges it’s inevitable immigrants bring their customs, traditions, values and behaviour as they start to rebuild their life in a new place — but some of those traditions should be let go. Alden Habacon, director of intercultural understanding at the University of B.C., said tension between groups of the same ethnicity are not new. One way this plays out is in friction between new immigrants and Canadian-born descendants of immigrants who have lived in Canada for generations. Habacon believes multiculturalism has been misunderstood and used as a convenient excuse to keep imported traditions that smack of bigotry. He gives a scenario. If your sweet old-fashioned grandmother tells you to marry your own kind, what do you do? It’s awkward, he said, because on one hand it’s something your elders insist is tradition, or just how things are done in your family, yet it does not embody the values of acceptance, diversity and inclusivity Canadians are about.

Special needs school plugs funding gaps BY PHILIP RAPHAEL
Glen Eden offers one-on-one support for its students who have a variety of special needs. The school almost shut its doors around that time, but an anonymous donor stepped forward after publicity about the school’s plight was raised and provided the bulk of a $258,000 donation. “That literally saved the school,” Martin said, adding, “We see kids with all sorts of special needs, from autism to behavioural issues, and everything in between.” Many of Glen Eden’s students are excluded from the public education system due to medical or emotional challenges, and the school is their only

After transplanting its roots from Vancouver to Richmond last year, a school focusing on special needs students is looking to To link grow its enrolment numbers. to the school’s Glen Eden website Multimodal Centre had been located in Vancouver since 1984 and enjoyed many years of operation until a drop-in government funding three years ago forced the school to lower its operating costs and find more affordable premises. Funding from the province’s Community Link grant, worth $220,000 annually, was reduced. “That money was used for extra things that tuition did not cover,” said Leanne Martin, whose 12-year-old daughter has been at the school for the past four and a half years. Martin — a board member of the school, who now organizes the majority of its fundraising efforts — said the grant was cut in half in 2010. And in 2011, it was discontinued. “We relied on that pretty heavily, so last year we were forced to leave our Vancouver site and had students in a temporary location.”
option, Martin said. Thankfully for the students and their families, this past school year, Glen Eden was able to find a space at Fraserview Church to continue offering classes. “Now, we’ve just moved the students into a new school facility on Vanier Place across from Cambie secondary school,” Martin said. The shift to a more permanent spot has helped enrolment reach 16 students, and hopes are the new space that can accommodate 30 will be full for the coming school year. Accreditation by B.C.’s Ministry of Education provides special needs funding for each student. But the hole left by the cancelation of its government grant will continue to require several fundraisers each year. Part of that is the Growing and Going Places gala planned for Nov. 16 at the Best Western Abercorn Inn, where Sonia Beeksma from Global News will emcee the event, and Variety’s Got Talent! winner from 2011 Shylo Sharity will perform. Tickets are $75 each or $675 for a table of nine. For more information about the event, purchase a ticket or make a donation, call 604-821-1457. Much of the money raised will go towards the school’s current renovations at the new location, as well as some new classroom equipment.

Definitions of demeaning
his week, the B.C. Court of Appeal ruled that Canada’s laws against assisted suicide are constitutional. They may very well be, but it does not make them just. The government’s argument in appealing a lower court ruling that struck the law down was that assisted suicide would “demean the value of life” and open up vulnerable people to risk of abuse. Laws against assisted suicide have their origins in early Catholic Church doctrine, which viewed suicide as an interference with God’s plan. Several church groups appeared as interveners during the appeal. For some who have watched a loved one die slowly and in agony with no hope of respite, let alone recovery, law and doctrine is impossible to accept. The fact is, sometimes we’re ready to leave the party before our bodies are. A law that forces people to live in progressively worse pain as their dignity dwindles away until they inevitably die demeans life. The practice is no longer outlawed in more progressive jurisdictions where rigorous fail safes are in place to make sure no one ever goes through with it unless they are of sound mind. To be clear: We are not advocating assisted suicide as some form of state-sponsored solution to severe depression or as one of a series of treatment options. But, for the sake of a few who live in constant pain or face a demeaning death with no prospect of relief, it is time to move the conversation into a new light. It’s unfortunate that our federal government does not wish to take the lead on such an initiative.
Walmart doesn’t fit West Cambie Area Plan The Editor, Re: “Boxed In?” News, Oct. 11. The West Cambie Area Plan, which Richmond city council approved in , states the maximum floor area for the anchor store in the Alexandra Neighbourhood mall should be 100,000 square feet. In contrast, the Walmart anchor store that’s actually proposed for the mall there has a larger floor area of 161,188 square feet. Just the increase alone is bigger than an American football field — including end zones and with lots of space for teams on the sidelines. Similarly, the whole Walmart mall is larger than the West Cambie Area Plan had led us to expect. Oddly, though (and this is hard to get one’s mind around), city staff wanted the mall developers to build much more square-footage than that, more than twice as much in fact. In short, the Walmart mall does not fit with the official plan for a “balanced community” in the Alexandra Neighbourhood. However, neither Walmart nor its partner should be the ones shouldering most of the blame. Jim Wright Richmond

Solution starts with providing home Each homeless person has his or her own life circumstance that led to homelessness. It could be anything from employment loss or general economic downturn, to fire, illness, physical disability, family breakdown, abuse, mental illness, or drug addiction. Homelessness can happen to anyone regardless of income, status, education, lifestyle, age, race, or gender. Few people realize that some 80 per cent of homeless people don’t even live on the street. They’re known as the invisible homeless. These are people who live in their cars, in church basements, in temporary shelters, or on the floors and couches of friends. A home is more than just a roof that keeps you dry — it is a place of safety, nourishment, refuge, comfort and dignity. A safe and stable home is necessary for food security, health, self-sufficiency and positive relationships with others. Home makes a healthy and productive life possible. I’m incredibly proud to serve as chair of the Greater Vancouver Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness (RSCH), which organizes Homelessness Action Week (Oct. 13-19) each year, along with hundreds of volunteers, to engage our residents in homelessness and its solutions. We believe the solution is to start with “home” — providing secure, per-
Deb Bryant G U E S T S H OT
manent housing to persons without it. Once people are securely housed, the support services that may be required to maintain their housing become much more effective in helping them to permanently end their homelessness. We know this has proven effective in other cities in Canada. We’ve found that seniors, youth, families and Aboriginal peoples are over-represented in the homeless population. In the 2011 Metro Vancouver Homeless Count, 27 per cent of the surveyed homeless population was of Aboriginal ancestry — a figure that has varied only slightly since 2005. During that same count, 397 youth under the age of 25 were found to be homeless, a full quarter of them homeless for more than a year. And we encountered the highest ever number of homeless families: 56 in total with 54 children. Further, it was alarming to find that the number of homeless seniors (age 65 and up) tripled from 2002 to 2011. We need to do better. The RSCH brings together the region’s leading organizations, government agencies, funders and community task forces to col-
laboratively investigate and plan to end homelessness. We develop and maintain a Regional Homelessness Plan and sponsor a regional Count of the homeless population every three years. The very nature of invisible homelessness makes it challenging to quantify. While we get a sample of those living in temporary shelters, we do not capture everyone who may be invisibly homeless. Many informally pay rent by doing survival sex work, chores or other types of labour. Often one has to give an address to access support services such as food banks or shelter allowances. A family or friend’s address is sometimes used, which keeps their homelessness hidden. That is why we continue to foster collaboration among more than 100 organizations that work on homelessness day in and day out: to enrich our understanding of the true extent of this issue. Research done by the United Way of the Lower Mainland shows the number of seniors waiting for social housing increased by 45 per cent from 2009-2012.

Phones create brave new world The Editor. Nothing demarcates some of the essential differences between what I call the “old world” (pre-1980s) and the plugged-in, teched-up one we live in now than the following: seeing a cell-phoneengaged mother fail to notice her three year-old daughter has wandered several aisles away in a crowded store while she engages in a loud, animated conversation about Oprah’s hair styles; witnessing a young woman so engrossed in texting that she steps off a curb on a red light and only avoids serious injury or death by the grace of an attentive driver’s quick reactions; watching a family of four, each totally absorbed in their separate handheld devices, go through an entire meal without talking to each other; and having a meal at a nice restaurant where all the
middle-aged and older patrons are talking with each other, laughing together, and generally celebrating the joys of the occasion, while two separate younger couples spend almost their entire times together bent over their respective Smartphones and paying no attention to each other. These are not uncommon sights, so add to the list as you will. All I know is that if such behaviours represent the values and priorities of the “new world,” I can only be increasingly content with the fact that I grew up in, and lived a large portion of my adult life, during a time when being “connected” meant something entirely different than it does now. Ray Arnold Richmond
Spare us snow geese complaints The Editor, The snow geese have started arriving again. So please will all those who hunt, spare us their entreaties to have hunting opened up on the West Dyke. We should feel privileged that we have the great good fortune to see these magnificent flocks in our neighbourhood. Furthermore, let’s not hear the old excuse that they are ruining the playing fields and turn the dogs loose on them. We have watched these fields all summer and they are green and lush, thanks to the fertilizer the geese bring with them. So okay, for a few short weeks when
they are here, they deposit their poop on these fields. But if it doesn’t rain, the poop dries to dust and if it does rain, which is the most likely scenario, the fields turn muddy and it is washed into the ground. What kid wants to play on a muddy wet field at that time of year anyway. Let’s not try to sterilize everything we touch or walk on. We all have to eat our “peck of dirt” in order to build up our immune system. Not that we’re suggesting that we should take that literally. So let’s enjoy the birds while they’re here.

Located in the heart of the village, The Steveston Historical Museum and Visitor Centre has continually served our community. First constructed in 1905, the building served as Richmond’s ﬁrst bank. It is now a museum commemorating Steveston’s rich history as a major ﬁshing village, with a post ofﬁce and tourist information centre. It is an important reminder of Steveston’s cultural and historical identity. This historic site is also an important tourist destination, drawing visitors from across the Lower Mainland and Canada and boosting Steveston’s local economy. It has helped to unify our community through hosting several events with assistance from organizations like Tourism Richmond. For example, I was recently called on to judge at a BC Culture Days “pietasting contest” held at the Museum. At the event, I had the opportunity to connect with many constituents and discuss the importance of preserving Steveston’s historical sites. Other events the Museum has held recently include “Picnic in the Past: Japan Style”, “Styling in the Past” and “Washing in the Past.” These activities attracted some 1,500 visitors from Steveston and surrounding areas, and couldn’t have happened without the help of the museum’s dedicated volunteers. I would like to thank The Steveston Historical Society for their outstanding service to the people of Steveston through their management of the centre. The sense of stewardship amongst all their members is exemplary. I would especially like to thank Tracy Lakeman of Tourism Richmond, and Loren Slye, Chair of the Steveston Historical Society for their vision, leadership and support to our community.

Thanks Canada Line staff The Editor, At about 2:45 p.m on Monday, Sept. 30, I was travelling on the Canada Line from Waterfront to Bridgeport Station. As the train left the station on its way to Brighouse I realized that I’d left my bag with course material and other personal informa-
tion on my seat. The TransLink “Green Coat” man at the station phoned ahead to see if my bag had been found. About 20 minutes later another TransLink employee returned with my bag, which she saw as she was leaving the train at Brighouse station.
Make handrails mandatory The Editor, I thoroughly enjoyed The Metropolitan Opera’s HD Live production of Eugene Onegin at SilverCity. We are so lucky to have access to these special events at SilverCity in Richmond! The theatre was full, and I suspect that everyone there was mightily impressed with the close to four hours of entertainment. What added to the enjoyment of the event for me was how helpful the SilverCity staff were. However, I did notice that for many “opera-goers” it was a challenge to go up and
down the stairs in the theatre because there is no handrail. (I’ve noticed the same situation at Gateway.) Perhaps it’s time all public facilities with stairs be mandated to include handrails. The 70-plus crowd loves to get out and enjoy themselves as much as those who are younger, and it is easier for them to do so if they know that stairs aren’t a potential hazard to their safety. Thanks to SilverCity staff for an excellent time! Janet Oakes, Richmond

Last week was our third delivery of local B.C. produce and we received individual packages of baby carrots. As I distributed them to my Culinary Arts students, most students FOOD MATTERS eagerly took them, but a few who like only cooked carrots declined. Today, I am sharing a recipe for Ginger-Carrot Soup, which combines delicious spices as well as one ingredient many young people love: peanut butter. If there are people in your household who are allergic to peanuts, you can substitute any nut butter, and if anyone is allergic to nuts, just omit the peanut butter altogether. Also, if you are cooking for people who cannot tolerate the heat of red chili flakes or ginger, feel free to reduce the amount of these ingredients. The recipe is adapted from Sid Goldstein’s The Wine Lover’s Cookbook: Great Recipes for the Perfect Glass of Wine. For the adults in your household, the luscious flavours of coconut milk, peanuts and Asian spices pair beautifully with the floral-spiciness of a Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, or Viognier. If you are looking for the perfect wine pairing, I would highly recommend seeking the expertise at Sip Wines, Richmond’s only VQA wine store. It is a great place to go to try new wines and learn about particular varietals or blends, and they offer Thursday themed-tastings as well as Saturday single winery tastings. see Directions page 11

Insure your most valuable asset against disability Judging by the real estate open houses and traffic in our local car dealerships, malls and WEALTH megastores, we sure do spend a lot of time shopping! Do you want to know the first thing we also buy before the sale is finished, or immediately afterward? Yup, we make sure our stuff gets insured! From the comprehensive umbrella policies that we take out on our homes to the car insurance and extended warranty packages on our consumer goods, we sure do like to protect ourselves from risk. Just when you think you’ve done an awesome job insuring the valuables, I’m about to tell you that there may be a gaping hole in your risk management plan. Let’s start by adding
up all the money you will make over the years. For example, take the case of a SMARTS 35-year-old who makes $60,000 per year and increases that income by five per cent each year as a result of promotions and inflationary increases. By retirement at age 65, he/she will have earned a total of $3,986,331. That’s a lot of money riding on the assumption that this income earner stays healthy! I would not feel comfortable with those odds, when the statistics tell us that a 35-year-old has a 50 per cent chance of being disabled for at least 90 days before age 65! Let’s be clear on this — the length of a disability, on average, is at least 90 days. Some disabilities could last as long as 30
years using this example. I asked one insurance company to provide me with examples of claims that they have been paying. That’s when I realized that the risk is very real! For instance, a salesman has received $690,000 to date from a brain injury sustained in 1988. A dentist who has been suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome since 1998 has received a total of $1,438.544. A business owner with a herniated disc has received $189,187 since 2008. Ironically, a financial advisor suffering from depression has received a total of $185,059 since 2009 (Hmmm, I wonder what could have triggered that). These are real people with real disabilities and none of them saw it coming. However, all of them made a plan to deal with it. Disability insurance is not as easy to apply for as life insurance. When the
risks are so high, it is only natural that the insurance company is going to ask a lot more questions. Underwriting a disability income policy is tricky and you really should work with an experienced and
qualified financial advisor. Your most valuable asset is looking back at yourself in the mirror every day. Please, don’t play Russian roulette with your income. Take the steps right now to insure it.

Seafair dominates at home in Icebreaker tourney Host association nearly sweeps all four tier one titles including an impressive performance by Pee Wee A1 team BY MARK BOOTH
From a dominating performance to a pair of arch rivals meeting in the championship game, the 11th annual Seafair Icebreaker Tournament served up a Thanksgiving feast of action over the long weekend at the Richmond Ice Centre. The event provides a steady dose of competition for rep teams as they get their season into full swing. The host association more than held their own as Seafair Hockey took three of the four tier one titles and settled for silver in the other. The organization’s top Pee Wee team lived up to its early season hype by showing why its the No. 1 ranked squad in the province. The Islanders rolled five straight victories to take home gold, including a 5-0 triumph over a shorthanded Victoria Racquet Club team in Monday afternoon’s championship game. The team, coached by Vancouver Giants
assistant and Seafair’s director of hockey operations Yogi Svejkovsky, earlier produced lopsided round-robin wins over Phoenix (10-0), North Vancouver (9-0) and Surrey (14-0) before finally being tested in a 3-1 victory against Juan de Fuca in the semi-finals. VRC also put up a determined fight, trailing 3-0 after 40 minutes, then running out of steam in the final period. The most intriguing and exciting final was served up at the youngest age level as Seafair trimmed Richmond Minor 3-2 in overtime to capture the Atom Tier One title. The Islanders enjoyed a 2-0 second period lead when the Blues pulled within one, then tied it in the early stages of the third. Richmond appeared to have the advantage heading into overtime when Seafair was accessed a tripping penalty in the final minute of regulation. However, the Islanders struck just 12 seconds into the extra frame for the dramatic win. Seafair had defeated
Richmond 6-0 in earlier round-robin action. The Blues rebounded with a win over Nanaimo (4-3) to nail down a playoff spot, then beat the same Island team again (8-3) in the semi-finals. Seafair blanked Juan de Fuca 70 in the other final four match-up. Richmond Minor’s coaching staff includes UBC head coach Milan Dragicevic who works as an assistant to Kirk Darbyshire. There was more drama in the Midget Tier One final as the Islanders needed a shootout to slip past Vancouver Minor 3-2. All the scoring was done through 40 minutes, as a scoreless third period was followed by five minutes of four-on-four overtime hockey which couldn’t produce a winner. Both teams entered the championship game with perfect records, as Steve Robinson’s squad dumped Cloverdale 7-4 in the semis, after earlier wins over Seattle (5-0), Juan de Fuca (3-1) and Vancouver MARK BOOTH/RICHMOND NEWS

Midget Ravens make it back-to-back titles at Kelowna tourney The Richmond Ravens Midget AA girls hockey team made the most of its trip to the Okanagan last weekend by capturing a tournament in Kelowna for the second straight year. The two-time defending B.C. champions, coached by AJ Sander, defeated the Vancouver Island Impact 5-2 in the championship game. The Ravens power play connected four times, including a third period hat trick by Sabrina Shigeoka. Yvonne Mikulcik also scored.
The result avenged a 3-2 opening game loss to the Impact. Kaitlyn Yan and Mikulcik had the Richmond goals. The girls bounced back with a 4-2 victory over the Salmon Arm Silvertips. After falling behind 2-0 five minutes into the contest, the Ravens went to work by pulling even on goals by Briana Trottier and Emily Chau. Power play tallies by Holly Gill and Trottier completed the comeback. Richmond then cruised to a 5-1 victory against the host Kelowna Rockets. Kaelon
Baker, Kiki Richardson, Mikulcik, Gill and Chau were the goalscorers. The Ravens’ power play was exceptional throughout the tournament, accounting for 13 of their 17 goals. Richmond received strong play on the blueline, led by captain Tamara Wong, Ross, Baker, Misa Sekawa-Luding, Alicia Voss and assistant captain Shigeoka. Injured defenceman Alexandra Cafik-Irwin and Hartley McCallum cheered the team on from the stands.
Up front, assistant captain Gill, Yan, Mikulcik, Trottier, Richardson and Emily Chau helped with getting goals while being supported by forwards Marisa Chau, Carey Ogryzlo, Athena Rados and Eveyln Tran. Goaltenders Harmony Sander and Dominque D`Amour also enjoyed a stellar weekend. The result made it five consecutive tournament wins in October for the midget “A” program. Richmond won the Mid Island Extreme Tournament three times (2009-11) before enjoying success in Kelowna.
