Richmond RCMP is appealing for help from the public to identify the body of a man found in a hotel parking lot on Saturday night. The Mounties’ serious crimes unit is investigating after the man – believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s and of Asian descent – was discovered around 9 p.m. in the 10,000 block of St. Edward’s Drive. There are reports that staff from the Sandman Hotel called the RCMP

after finding the body. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, ordinarily called out for murder investigations, is not yet involved and Richmond RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said it’s not yet clear if indeed the death is suspicious. Police are still trying to identify the man and no more information will be available until after the coroner’s investigation, Ashton said. Anyone with information about the person or the incident is asked to call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

MARITIME

Abandoned boats an environment hazard on the river Graeme Wood

Staff Reporter gwood@richmond-news.com

The owner of an abandoned boat that sunk in a small channel of the Fraser River near Annacis Island on Jan. 22 has been order to clear the vessel away before it causes environmental damage. According to East Richmond resident Dennis Allchin, local residents believe the wooden vessel could be close to 100 years old. Allchin said residents thought the owner could not afford moorage at a local marina so he/she tried to anchor the boat in the river, just off shore. It appears strong currents overtook the boat, which eventually took on water

leaving it half-submerged by the time Allchin took a photo and submitted it to the News over weekend. On Tuesday the boat remained in the river between Don Island and Annacis Island across from several houseboat communities. “Nobody seems to know what to do with it,” said Allchin in an email. Port Metro Vancouver told the News it is monitoring the boat, named the Viner, and have notified the owner. Abandoned derelict boats have become an environmental problem and safety hazard in the river, so much so that it forced the port to announce last September a $2 million, five-year initiative

to ensure the proper removal of such vessels from municipalities that border the river. According to an employee at Transport Canada, there is a problem with such vessels throughout the Lower Mainland. He said all the federal transportation body can do is issue a “Notice of Shipping” if it poses a risk to marine traffic. A manager at the nearby Shelter Island Marina and Boatyard said Coast Guard officials visited the vessel on Monday and took photos. The Coast Guard told the News it was only responsible for the safety of others in such cases and is not responsible for helping remove the vessel.

There will be plenty of shimmying, gliding, high-stepping, twists, turns, kicks and flicks March 1 at the Riverside Palace — all of it done with the greatest of ease, as far as spectators of the third annual Dancing with the Richmond Stars will be concerned. For the novice dancers performing, that remains to be seen. It’s the third annual fundraiser for the Richmond Community Hospice Association which puts a group of eight local celebrities on the dance floor, the majority of them with an instructor, to delight the crowd. “We have a fabulously talented group,” said Pat Miller, executive

Rick Duff, guest experiences director for the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver and president of the Rotary Club of Steveston, is a repeat performer with the Dancing with the Richmond Stars event. He and instructor Sarah Liang have been working on the jive for the March 1 performance. More photos at www.richmond-news.com. Photo by Philip Raphael. director of the hospice association. “They are all giving up their time. They are very energetic and competitive.” Returning to the event is last year’s winner, Karina Lapalme, head of the City of Richmond’s human resources

department who admitted that since winning she had not slipped on her dancing shoes. “I had to dig them out from the back of the closet,” she said laughing. “But with some good, long practices, it’s all coming back.”

Along with her instructor from last year, Alexandr Cherdanstev, Lapalme will be performing a samba-latininspired mix in the non-competitive showcase dance. In addition to kicking up the fundraising efforts another notch — the public can pledge funds for their favourite dance couple — Laplame said she is looking forward to connecting with the new dancers to make them feel at ease. One person already comfortable on the dance floor is Steveston’s Rick Duff, making a repeat appearance. “It was so much fun last year,” said Duff who is Director of Guest Experiences for the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver. “It was a great time being around great people. And to help such a great cause, when they asked me to come back again I couldn’t say no.” This year Duff and instructor Sarah Liang are embarking on the jive — last year he performed the cha cha. “I wanted something a little more rock and rollish,” he said, “but we’re putting an ’80s twist on it with the hit song front the Romantics — What I Like About You.” see DANCING › page 4

Richmond’s leading medical health officer has appealed to the public to take a survey and help make the city even healthier. Vancouver Coastal Health’s (VCH) Dr. James Lu admitted that Richmond has a healthy reputation, but it could be even better with the help of a community survey. The My Health My Community Survey was launched in June 2013

myhealthmycommunity.org. Participants will be entered into a draw for an iPad and other prizes. And all Richmond residents who complete the survey by March 15 will be eligible to win extra prizes — a pair of Canucks tickets to the March 23 game against Buffalo. Any Richmond residents who completed the survey previously will also be included in this draw. “It’s critical that residents of Richmond respond to this survey to ensure we have meaningful data to help us identify what’s preventing people from leading

healthier lifestyles where they live, work, learn and play,” added Lu. “The survey aims to gather the information we need to tailor health and social services to the communities that need them. “One region may need more services for children at risk; another may need to focus on seniors with mobility issues. We need to know this to make the most effective use of our resources.” For more information and to take the survey, go to myhealthmycommunity.org.

misgivings about taking part, Kirkland said no. “I said okay, but don’t expect much,” he quipped. The pair will be doing the cha cha and are receiving instruction from Wiiliam Li. “We chose the cha cha because it’s something we can do afterwards,” Lee-Son said. “It was the only thing that I could spell,” added Kirkland. The lack of an instructor to cling to during the roughly three-minute performance does not have the couple worried. “If we stumble and forget our steps, we’ll have to remember the bigger picture of raising funds for the hospice,” Lee-Son said. Meanwhile, the partnership of Steveston’s Paul Meyer and instructor Jessie Keillor features the oldest and youngest participants. Meyer, who runs PM Marine Diesel, is 71, and Keillor is 19. Together they will be performing a waltz. “He’s doing really well,” Keillor said of her pupil. “Paul has learned a lot over the past four weeks.

Admitting he is operating outside his comfort zone on the ballroom floor is Dr. Aleco Alexiadis, the medical director of Richmond’s Palliative Care Program who will be performing the cha cha with instructor Hilda Li. “What’s not a challenge,” Alexiadas said joking. “No, you know what, it’s been wonderful, actually. Hilda’s a fantastic coach, she paid me

to say that. And this ballroom (Broadway Ballroom) has been fantastic with all the support they’ve provided.” “I think he’s awesome,” said instructor Li. “I work him really hard, and I am going to make him try more.” Alexiadas said the work the hospice association does is integral in his role in palliative care. “It’s a great cause to support,” he said.” To support the celebrity dancers and their instructors, visit richmondhospiceassociation. com and click on the Dancing with the Richmond Stars link.

their performance down pat, they are on schedule to be ready for the March 1 event. “Depending on which level of the waltz you’re doing, it has varying technical levels,” Keillor said.”We’re sticking to the beginner’s steps. But there are some spin turns in the corners that is very technical in the footwork.” Meyer said he wasn’t familiar with the hospice association prior to attending last year’s event. But after seeing the community engagement it created, and learning about the services the association offers knew it was something he’d like to get involved with. What prompted Kaye Wei to put on her dancing shoes was her work with the home care firm Nurse Next Door. Other than performing traditional Chinese dance, Wei is a rookie who has thrown herself into the event with instructor William Wu to perform the jive. “It’s been challenging,” Wei said. “Chinese traditional dancing, the music can be very slow and soft. With the jive, it’s a lot faster.” One celebrity with a personal connection to the hospice association is Steveston’s Erin McPherson who works at Richmond Funeral Home. Her grandmother spent seven months in care before passing away, and it’s that experience which prompted McPherson to jump at the opportunity to be part of the fundraiser, even though she has no dance or performance experience. “They (hospice association) were so

In 2011 and 2012 Nacho, a.k.a Macho Nacho, won the national agility championships in the 10-inch class. Brutus, a.k.a Brutus Maximus XVIII, is also a provincial champion in the same category. “It’s amazing a pug could do so well in agility because they aren’t usually as fit and

their owners don’t usually think a pug can learn just as many skills as other athletic breeds,” said Sun. Sun believes all dogs can be trained and positive reinforcement is the best way to go about it. “Any dog has the potential to learn many, many skills. When the dog does something well, you have to add something in life that they value,” said Sun. Sun says the key to training is to break down every little step and

movement a dog makes and reward them for simple gestures. “Suddenly the dog is performing three or four of those actions and it ends up looking like a trick,” said Sun, noting some tricks can take a week to teach. But it’s not all about work for her perpetually panting three amigos. “These are such great companion pets. When you’re at home, they will find their own place and rest and be very calm.

Richmond dog trainer Lisa Sun will take her slobbering, three-pug circus to the Pet Lover Show this week at the Trade and Exhibition Centre in Abbotsford. “They’re the famous three little pugs that do tricks together,” said Sun, who trains the dogs in a small backyard facility and academy in East Richmond that is equipped with all the dog doohickeys you can imagine. The highly photogenic seven year-old pugs are family pets, but early on, Sun trained them to perform basic tricks. Years later, they have learned to hug one another, make a pug tower and run through obstacle courses. For the audience, it may not be the tricks that are the “wow” factor, so much as the hilarity of watching three nearly identical looking bugeyed pugs work in unity to please their master. Their names are Biff,

obedience — the basics of sit, stay and come — you have to let your dog’s brain be creative and let it offer you things,” said Sun. “That’s where you can realize a dog’s potential because when you play tricks the dog learns about body awareness — their brain is thinking and working.”

EDITORIAL OPINION

ICBC conscience found wanting

P

olice, ICBC, the courts — anyone with a bit of sense — have repeatedly encouraged those who drink any alcohol to steer clear of driving. Drinking and driving kills people, we are reminded time and again, through public statements and advertising in a variety of media. If you drink, don’t drive. Call a cab. Take a bus. Walk. Appoint a designated driver… oh wait… after last week’s court ruling, your friend might not want you in the car. A sober woman driving her drunk boyfriend home got in an accident — caused when her inebriated passenger grabbed the steering wheel. The boyfriend was killed, but the driver was badly hurt, and her costs have mounted into hundreds of thousands of dollars. After first getting as much as she could from

the boyfriend’s estate, she went to ICBC for the rest. When ICBC didn’t pay, the case naturally proceeded into a courtroom… where a judge agreed with ICBC. The ruling could deter friends – or groups like Operation Red Nose — from being designated drivers. Who will risk loss of insurance coverage? One of the very reasons ICBC was created was to get past the mercenary spirit of private sector insurance companies. This case has damaged ICBC’s anti drunk-driving campaign. Clearly, ICBC has outgrown the conscience it was born with in the 1970s. If there’s no new direction from the Court of Appeal, it is up to the provincial government to act quickly to close the hole in the law, and re-establish the principle that no one should have to risk being penalized for being a Good Samaritan.

Rather than alerting police or some higher authority to this monstrously unacceptable situation, they did nothing. And so, the nightmarish life of a young girl was allowed to continue unchecked, with the inevitable tragic result. Her report is a damning indictment of the whole system that is designed to help aboriginal children, a system she notes “virtually collapsed” around the traumatized girl. And as Turpel-Lafond notes: “If she was not First Nations, living on-reserve, it is very likely she would not have been left as isolated, invisible and unsupported.” Turpel-Lafond has told me she fears there are indeed similar cases to the one she has uncovered in her latest investigation, and if she is correct that means somewhere, right now, another child may be living a nightmare on a reserve and everyone may be looking the other way.

The child in the latest report is now unknown outside a relatively small group of people. Only a few clues about her identity were unearthed in the report: she was small in stature, had serious dental problems, liked to listen to music, was a star wrestler on her school team, had emerging mental health issues of her own and cared deeply for her three-year-old baby sister, whom she protected from their violent mother whenever she could. Her name will likely never be made public. But hopefully, as always, some valuable lessons can be learned from her short life and her tragic death. The politics and political correctness of aboriginal childcare need to be put aside in favour of real action and professional help. As Turpel-Lafond’s report makes clear, the time for talking and obeying the “sensitivities” of the topic is over and the time for action is now.

YOUR DENTAL HEALTH IS OUR PRIORITY

POLITICS

No Senate reform needed The Editor, Re: “Liberated Liberals,” Editorial, Feb. 7. In the above referenced editorial you wrote, “Trudeau has done more to reform the senate than Harper has done in almost eight years as Prime Minister.” I am not certain that Trudeau has done anything to reform the senate; his presumptuous action cannot be seen as a reform, rather it smacks as an ill-considered political gesture to garner media coverage now that the aping media has seen through Trudeau’s sham and stopped admiring his hair style. It is evident from your editorial that you know little (perhaps nothing) about the purpose of the Senate and how its members function on a day to day basis; and please do not trot out senators who have sunk to the bottom of the barrel through this mischief — they are the exception and not the rule.

The editor reserves the right to edit letters for brevity, clarity, legality and good taste. Letters must include the author’s telephone number for verification. We do not publish

A check of the Senate and its purpose and members will reveal rather quickly that, of the 105 members, most are hard at work carrying out their duties as they sit on committees — some several committees simultaneously — caring for Canada and its citizens. Examples include: Committees on off-label drug uses; strengthening off-reserve First Nations; employment equity in the public service and internal economy and budgets. Those committees address topics of concern to Canadians and ought not to be dismissed out of hand simply because a selfcentred, egotistical socialist politician uses a back-door scheme to “reform” the Senate. I expect better from the organ that Bill Lam began a couple of decades ago and struggled to survive. Bob Orrick Richmond

In addition to a traditional Indian banquet and dance, attendees of the event will be treated to live entertainment, exciting casino action and the opportunity to bid on silent and live auction items.

The event began with local realtor Gail Bains, and her family who wanted to raise funds for RSCL. Her goal was also to increase awareness about the unique gifts that people with developmental disabilities have to offer, and the importance of creating an accepting and inclusive community. To date, the event has raised nearly $150,000 in support of RSCL programs and services. Richmond Society for Community Living provides community based programs and

supports for infants, children and adults who have developmental disabilities and their families. This includes early intervention for infants at risk; supports to access child care and preschool programming for children with additional support needs; out of school care and transition planning for teens with disabilities; life-skills training, employment services and residential options for adults with a disability who wish to live outside their family home. We offer a continuum of care through the lifespan that allows the individuals in our programs - and their family members - to dream, plan, learn and grow. RSCL receives core funding from the Ministry for Children and Family Development and Community Living BC, but depends on fundraising activities to ensure the continued success of all programs and services. Proceeds from the 2014 Taste of India will go directly to our Family Resource Program which provides

information, resources and support to families that face the extraordinary circumstances that come with having a child who has a developmental disability. Recognizing the need for support over the life-course, the Family Resource Program provides assistance to families and individuals with a developmental disability during all of life’s transitions, resulting in the improvement in the quality of life for the individual and the improved well-being of the family unit.

MediJean leading the way in breeding ‘quality’ pot MediJean, a medical marijuana company based in Richmond, is attempting to define the quality assurance standards that it believes must be met by all involved in the industry. “Quality assurance is an initiative that we are taking seriously,” said Jean Chiasson, chief executive officer at MediJean. “We have built a team that will ensure our standards meet or exceed the safety, quality

and consistency of a ‘Ready to Eat Food’ product. “It is our policy at MediJean to not only deliver quality, but breed it, to guarantee that patients who use our medicine get the best medical marijuana available.” The Richmond News reported late last year how MediJean was backing the City of Richmond’s move to restrict and control the amount and location of medical marijuana

facilities. Pete Martin, who has more than 35 years of experience in the quality assurance, quality control and quality services field, leads MediJean’s quality assurance team. He has implemented an organized, systematic approach to product safety and security from a bacterial, chemical and quality perspective. This means keeping the plants safe and secure from contamination and

poor growing conditions, while ensuring a rigorous anti-contamination plan is followed from the time the seed is planted, to the moment the medicine is shipped to the patient. “By implementing these principles we will ensure the medicine we produce is mould free, without the use of gamma radiation,” said Martin. !

Stanley’s Grill during his son’s hockey practice at the Richmond Ice Centre and inquired about a possible business opportunity, and fast forward to the present where he now looks after both the grill and concessions at the popular skating destination in Riverport. Stanley’s Grill originally opened in the early 1990s, and when May took over he said things were looking “tired.” After a big renovation that features an all-new bar, customers have a choice of sitting on the patio on a sunny day, enjoying a panoramic view of both the “Coliseum” or “Forum” ice rinks from any of the tables, or choosing one of nine screens — including a massive 100-inch projector shining onto an entire wall at the back — showing live sporting events throughout the week. Unlike some other establishments serving alcohol, you will likely find kids seated inside as well. “We changed the liquor license at the LCB going on two years now. Families are allowed up here until 10 p.m.,” said May, who stressed that he is trying to create a family-friendly atmosphere. There is even a table in the corner that resembles a miniature hockey surface.

Stanley’s Grill

14140 Triangle Rd., Richmond

Coming from a family background in the food and beverage industry spanning over 30 years, Stanley’s Sports Bar and Grill general manager Steve May knows a thing or two about running a successful eatery. “We had two restaurants in Vancouver called Rossini’s — one in Gastown and one in Kits. They were Italian jazz clubs,” said May. Looking after the pair of locations with his siblings and parents, May said he “needed a change after the building lease at the Kits location expired and his father passed away at around the same time. One day he wandered into

“My kid plays hockey, now he can come up with a couple buddies from his team and join me and my wife for a pizza.” Being so close to the movie theatre, May also offers two-for-one appetizer specials if people bring in their movie stub. They also host big groups like fundraisers and birthday parties, and there are drink specials every night. A pool table and a brand new Phoenix electronic dart machine round out the amenities. Stanley’s Sports Bar and Grill is located at 14140 Triangle Rd. For more information and a full menu, visit stanleysgrill.ca.

I’m not sure which to believe, but what I do know is that some of the most valuable tidbits of counselling advice I give clients are free and surprisingly simple. Sure, professional counselling services can help you build communication and relationship skills, guide you through a process of self-awareness and therapeutic healing, or encourage you to achieve your goals. I’m an advocate of therapy, obviously. However, there is a huge percentage of the population who either can’t afford private counselling, or feels too proud or embarrassed to access the services. Good news: There are a few secrets to mental health and emotional well-being that are free and accessible to everyone. They will all seem overly simple when you first read them, but that’s the point. Sometimes the solutions to life’s problems are simple. 1) Eat well. Mental and emotional health are linked to physical health. The most fundamental way to maintain the proper

functioning of every system, organ, and cell in the body Family is proper nutrition. Bodies Function that have an abundance of Danielle nutrients are more resilient Aldcorn to stress and recover more quickly from traumatic events. Bodies that are deficient in nutrients become overwhelmed, breakdown at the weakest point, and can develop disease and mental health symptoms. New clients come in all the time with depression or severe panic attacks and one of the first things we talk about is nutrition. Ninety percent of them are not eating enough, or aren’t eating nutrient dense food. If you are going through a stressful time in your life eating healthfully might be the last thing you feel like doing, but it is a vital part of emotional recovery and mental health. 2) Be active. Physical activity and spending time in nature both heal the mind as much as the body. Exercise is the easiest way to hit both of these birds with one stone.

Short walk: Movement fights stress friends with all your stress, write it down. Journaling doesn’t cost anything and it’s cathartic. If you’re worried about privacy, type it into a computer document and delete it once you’re done. 4) Breathe. The simplest free strategy is also the most valuable one. The body and the mind are designed to seek a state of balance and will heal themselves if we let them do their thing. The problem is that most of us continually add new stress and don’t slow down long enough to let the immune system and homeostasis checks catch up. Breathing provides a moment of reflection to gain perspective and determine what’s important. Deep breathing floods the blood with oxygen, which is vital to the survival of every cell

in the body. Breathing also signals the nervous system to turn off the stress response and all the unpleasant symptoms of anxiety. I can hear some of you laughing sardonically and scoffing. “Yeah, Danielle, organic apples and wild blueberries aren’t going to do me any good when I’m prying my school phobic child’s fingers from the door frame every morning.” Or, “Good one, lady, walking around in a grassy field and taking deep breaths isn’t going to save my crumbling marriage.” You’re right, these simple and free steps are not going to solve all of the issues and problems that bring people to counselling. They will, however, provide the necessary foundation for

Sockeyes young gun signs with Giants 16-year-old recognized for his terrific rookie season with defending champions Mark Booth

For the second time in three years the Vancouver Giants have inked a 16-year-old standout with the Richmond Sockeyes. The Western Hockey League club announced Friday it had signed John Wesley to a Standard Player Agreement. The 6-foot 183-pound forward currently leads all rookie scorers in the Pacific Junior Hockey League with with 50 points in 41 games, including 23 goals, which ranks him eighth overall. It was during the 2011-12 season the Giants signed Carter Popoff when he was also enjoying a productive rookie campaign for his hometown Sockeyes. He is now in his second full season with Vancouver and leads the club in scoring with 57 points Wesley played his minor hockey with Semiahmoo before joining the South Delta Hockey Academy for his Grade 10 year. He enjoyed an impressive season on the U15 South Delta Wild, helping the team reach the championship game of the Richmond Midget International Tournament with 16 points in 10 games. He attended the Giants training camp last summer before earning a roster spot with the Sockeyes. He was named his team’s MVP at the recent PJHL Prospect’s Game in Ladner. Wesley was also considering playing for the Langley Rivermen of the B.C. Hockey League before signing with the Giants.

“We are excited that Johnny has decided to join our program,” said Giants’ Executive Vice President and General Manager Scott Bonner. “He is having a great season in Junior B with a strong program in Richmond, and we have had lots of luck with graduates from Junior B such as Milan Lucic, Cody Franson, Mitch Bartley, and Carter.” Wesley is part of an outstanding rookie class that has the Sockeyes in first place in the Tom Shaw Conference and battling the Aldergrove Kodiaks for the best record in the league at 31-5-3-2. The group of freshmen also includes 17year-old Ayden MacDonald and 18-year-old Ontario native Mac Colasimone who are 13th and 15th in league scoring respectively. Wesley earned first star honours Saturday night as the Sockeyes produced a 5-3 road win over the North Vancouver Wolf Pack. His goal with 7:37 remaining tied the game at 3-3. He also assisted on Cole Plotnikoff ’s empty netter. MacDonald also played a big part in the outcome, with his second goal of the night proving to be the game winner. Kootney Alder turned aside 18 shots for the win. Two nights earlier, the Sockeyes outlasted the visiting Mission City Outlaws 6-5. Liam Lawson and Wesley led the way with a goal and two assists each. Dominic Centis, Nicholas Patey, Carson Rose and Plotnikoff also scored. Alder picked up the win and now has a league best 25 on the season. Icing... The Sockeyes visited the Delta Ice hawks last night and will host the Grandview Steelers in a quarter-final playoff preview Thursday at 7 p.m. The defending champions close out their regular season schedule on Saturday at North Delta. The playoffs start next Thursday.

SENIOR BOYS BASKETBALL PLAYOFFS

City championships feature plenty of parity MacNeill Ravens will be looking to cap off a perfect season in the Richmond Senior Boys Basketball League with their first-ever city championship but there are plenty of hurdles in their way. The Ravens (9-0) were expected to make short work of the Cambie Crusaders (1-8) when the eight team tournament tipped off yesterday at Burnett secondary, however, there are six other schools fully capable of

spoiling their quest. “I think this year is by far the most balanced competitive year I have seen. I think there are 7 teams that could possibly win it. MacNeill is the favourite as they finished league play undefeated but they had four wins by four points or less.,” said Paul Eberhardt, head coach of seven-time defending champion RC Palmer. The Ravens and Griffins are both

currently ranked among the top 10 2A schools in the province. The McMath Wildcats and the surging McNair Marlins are top 10 ranked 3A schools, while the McRoberts Strikers, Richmond Colts and Hugh Boyd Trojans are capable of knocking off anyone. The semi-final games tip-off at 6:15 and 8 p.m. tonight. The final goes on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

In addition to the clientele that come by to soup up their cars, Performance One caters to people simply wanting their car serviced. “We also do regular maintenance and service on older model vehicles that are out of warranty, for people that don’t want to go back to the dealer but want dealership type repair done.” Until the end of next month, the shop is running a couple of promotions such as a brake special where customers can get up to 50% off stock-replacement brake parts.
