Couple recalls Fort Mac inferno 'Your windshield wipers were basically used for flaming embers' Graeme Wood
Staff Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org
t was like a scene out of the movies, is how native Richmondites and Fort McMurray residents Kyle Campbell and Caitlyn Lee describe witnessing tens of thousands of people, including themselves, fleeing the northern Alberta city after a wildfire engulfed it last week. “It was very overwhelming. I was alone with two dogs and Kyle was at work about an hour north. The ash is raining down, there’s a red plume in the sky and it’s black everywhere. It was very scary,” said Lee, now at her parents’ home, waiting for the call to return to Fort McMurray to resume her job as an environmental consultant. “Your windshield wipers were basically used for flaming embers. It’s a scary scene. It all happened really fast. We went to bed thinking they had it under control,” said
Campbell of the May 3 evacuation when the massive fire jumped a river, quickly threatening his neighbourhood. “I started panicking. The dog knew something was wrong,” said Lee, referring to their young German Shepherd, Cali. The one highway out of town became a parking lot, explained Campbell. People started running out of gas and running, he said. As the towering flames crossed the highway, cars lit on fire, adding to the mayhem. The two located a friends’ cache of gas and filled up their truck to get to Edmonton. “I was scared for my life,” said Lee. Campbell and Lee, both 25 years-old and Steveston-London and McRoberts secondary graduates, respectively, have been partners for five years but moved to ‘Fort Mac’ about 18 months ago. They say they love the city and its people and are devastated to see the destruction. About 15 per cent of the city’s structures burned down from a fire that has now scorched a reported
204,000 hectares — about 16 times the size of Richmond. While fortunate their home did not burn down, they have organized a fundraiser with two other Fort Mac residents at the Buck and Ear Bar and Grill on Friday at 6 p.m. The fundraiser is an opportunity to quadruple your donation to the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal. That’s because Campbell’s employer, Suncor Energy, will match its employees’ donations of up to $5,000 each. That total sum will then be donated to Red Cross, which will then be doubled by the Canadian government. A burger and beer costs $20, with $10 (ergo $40) going to the emergency relief efforts. “We feel helpless not being able to help on the ground. We have a good situation here with our family and our friends and we have our dog. But we’ve seen our friends’ houses burn down . . . And there are a lot of abandoned pets,” said Lee.

News reporters brings home gold, bronze
ichmond News reporter, Graeme Wood, came home with gold, following the annual Ma Murray Awards on Saturday night. Hosted by the Community Newspaper Association of B.C. and Yukon, the awards recognize the best in community journalism throughout the province and territory. Wood was awarded in the Sports Writing category for a
series in which he chronicled the exhilarating and frustrating process of learning how to play golf. The judges described the series as “highly entertaining.” They noted, “it is difficult to sustain a feature such as this over an extended period but the writer has done a great job of it.” News reporter Philip Raphael was awarded Bronze in the Environmental Writing Award for
his story about recycling fishing nets. According to the judges, “Reporter Philip Raphael presents a fascinating story about an intensely local issue with global implications. Raphael expertly explains how fishing nets, or ghost gear, impacts marine life, the emotional connection fishermen have to the gear, and an inventive international solution to recycle the nets overseas.
“His reporting is thorough and concise and his storytelling is compelling. He has wonderfully created awareness about an environmental issue many in the community would be ignorant of — had they not been privy to his well reported piece.” Richmond News editor, Eve Edmonds noted, “It’s a proud day for the News. We have an excellent team and it’s an honour to have that recognized.”

Charges for Talmey murder Kim Bolan
.C.’s anti-gang agency announced charges Friday against a third suspect in the October 2014 targeted murder of Theoren Poitras in Richmond. Staff Sgt. Lindsey Houghton, of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, said 25-year-old Edmonton resident David Nguyen has now been charged with first-degree murder in Poitras’s fatal shooting. Last year, Sean Jacob Lee Jennings, of Edmonton, was charged as the alleged shooter, and Peter Edmonds was charged with accessory after the fact in Poitras’s murder. Poitras was found face down in a pool of blood in the northwest corner of RC Talmey elementary school, in the 9500-block of Kilby Drive after area residents reported hearing shots fired.

Houghton said Nguyen has been in custody since his arrest in March 2015 and is facing a total of 20 criminal charges in Edmonton, including break and enter, robbery with a firearm, unlawful confinement, aggravated assault and various other firearms charges. “This collaborative effort by the CFSEUBC, IHIT, and the Edmonton Police Service leveraged the expertise and abilities of each agency to most effectively target some of the most violent, prolific offenders operating in B.C. and Alberta in order to obtain successful criminal charges and get these individuals off our streets,” CFSEU Chief Supt. Kevin Hackett said. IHIT Supt. Dwayne McDonald said the new charges against Nguyen “speaks to the tenacity our investigators show in their pursuit of evidence to solve gang related homicides which put the public at risk.”
zoned for industrial use). VAFFC noted in its amendment application that a 50mm increase in diameter to the 300mm pipeline “would not result in pumping more fuel to the airport or change the scope of the project.” Rather, the increase is necessary for operational efficiency.
VAFFC also noted a bigger pipeline would reduce greenhouse gas emissions because less energy from the pumping system would be used. An open house on the pipeline amendment, held by VAFFC, is this Saturday at the Executive Airport Plaza, from 1-5 p.m. Or see VancouverAirportfuel.ca.

Then we have a couple of extra things we need to do, just because it’s in the nature of the vehicle — we are not easily seen.” Motorcycle safety is particularly important in a locale like B.C.’s south coast, where the mild climate means a longer riding season compared to the rest of the country.

fatal accident in Richmond last week involving a motorcyclist didn’t deter a group of B.C. riders from taking part on in a group ride on Saturday for International Female Ride Day, but it was a stark reminder about the importance of road safety. “We have a community and — I don’t know if you notice — when motorcycles ride, we always give each other a wave and we always help each other,” said Melly Kage, one of the organizers for Vancouver’s International Female Ride Day. “We always feel sad if something happens to someone, even if we don’t know them.” May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and Saturday was International Female Ride Day. The event, which is hosted all around the world and celebrated its 10th anniversary this year since being launched by Motoress Magazine, saw at least two group rides take place in B.C. on Saturday, one in Victoria and one in Vancouver.

rivers who use cellphones will soon face tougher penalties in British Columbia after the government announced Monday those caught breaking the rule will face escalating fines and the possibility of a driving prohibition for repeat offenders, beginning June 1. The issue came to a head recently in Richmond after the RCMP published the driving record of a woman who had been caught by police using a phone while driving 14 times since 2011. The current penalty of $167 for distracted driving will increase to $543 for a first offence, $888 for a second offence within a year and $1,600 for a third offence. Drivers caught using cellphones will also see demerit points on their licence increase from three to four points. As well, the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles will automatically review a driver’s licence after two tickets and, at his discretion, can impose a driving ban of up to 12 months. “These tough new sanctions reflect what our public consultation process indicated — 90 per cent wanted higher fines. It targets distracted drivers where it hurts through their wallets,” said Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Morris. He added every year more than 60 drivers are killed by distracted drivers on B.C. roads and about 330 are seriously injured. He

added if those statistics don’t come down dramatically after a few years, the government would be willing to revisit the sanctions to ensure they are tough enough. “We want to make distracted driving a thing of the past and we want to change the way people think about distracted driving,” he said. “One death on B.C. roads is too many.” Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone compared the time a driver looks down to check a text message to driving the length of a football field blind. “That’s what you are doing when you look away,” said Stone. “Leave your phone alone. There’s no call or text worth risking your life and those around you.” See more at Richmond-News.com

Pitch and putt needs more care Dear Editor, I was dismayed and somewhat bemused by a recent ad placed in your paper by the City of Richmond extolling playing their “beautiful” Pitch and Putt nine-hole golf course. Unfortunately, over the last two or three years maintenance has been seriously neglected and the course has become a disgrace for a public facility. I am a member of the senior’s golf group. We have played the course every Wednesday since the early 1990’s. It really did use to be beautiful. The city has reduced the staff hours allotted to the care of the course by approximately half. The result is weeds everywhere, inadequate mowing, hard sand traps, unkempt and rough greens and decrepit tee boxes. Conditions on the course continue to deteriorate. In the past we have written to the mayor and communicated directly with parks management, but to no avail. Compared to the other civic pitch and putt courses ours is a disgrace and an embarrassment to the city. Presumably, the city’s ad was intended to increase participation. But offering a “cow pasture” golf experience will certainly defeat this endeavor. Adequate maintenance resources must be allocated or the city will lose a valuable recreational asset.

City needs a tree museum Dear Editor, Re: “Tree loss becoming an all too familiar story,” Letters, May 4. Further to Mr. Arnold’s letter concerning the stately willow tree at 8380 Seafair Drive, a concerned citizen has tacked a sign (see photo at right) to that tree requesting upset folks to call the city. I walk my dog daily along Seafair and have watched this property change from great gardens, to neglected yard, to clearly slated for demolition. Surprisingly, to me, none of the usual orange fencing marking root boundaries was ever erected. To see this note on this big mature willow is both frustrating and infuriating —what tree bylaw?! Oddly, two workers at the site yesterday (backhoe operator doing the demo; and a truck driver removing scrap metal) both expressed surprise the city was permitting this seemingly healthy willow to come down. This tree is clearly on the city easement at the street, and in a front corner of the lot, so one can conclude the developer intends
to put a driveway in that location instead of using the existing driveway. Sound familiar? See the News’ letters section from last week, cutting down a mature cedar versus relocating a driveway. As to removing healthy trees, Mr. Arnold is spot on here, too. At the north end of Seafair Drive, just a block below Blundell, several healthy looking birch trees show a city issued sign permitting these trees to be removed. It would be very interesting to know if the folks issuing permits actually visit proposed single home residential sites to properly assess trees, shrubs and neighborhood before issuing permits. The loss of tree canopy is well documented and growing. Sadly, the odd replacement stick trees cannot replace the vanishing mature willow, cedar, cyprus, oak and pine trees. Oh well, Joni Mitchell’s song is prophetic “...put ‘em in a tree museum.” Bill Gerry Richmond

Sweet singing raises funds Dear Editor A big thank you to all the singers who participated in this year’s Richmond Sings! This was the Richmond Orchestra and Chorus’s eighth year of hosting this fundraising event in which choirs from around Richmond are invited to come out and sing a few songs and raise money for a local organization. And what a night it was! Not only was there some great music, but more than $1,100 was raised to support the Richmond Addiction Services Society, an organization that does so much for the Richmond community. Participating along with the Richmond Chorus in this concert was the Richmond
Youth Honour Choir, the Matthew McNair Secondary School choir, the Steveston London Secondary School choir, the Canada Melody Choir, the Gilmore Park United Church choir and the Our Saviour Lutheran Church choir. Thank you also to Fraserview MB Church for providing the venue free of charge. We also so much appreciated all our audience members who gave so generously to support the Richmond Addiction Services Society. Don’t miss the ninth Richmond Sings next year!

Save a school, save a community Dear Editor For more than 50 years, students have called Daniel Woodward elementary their second home, and families in the neighbourhood have been drawn together there building a strong sense of community. However, as the parents and students of the school had just celebrated their main event of the year, the spring fair, which raised more than $7,300, they are worried that the school may soon be closed. Woodward school has been earmarked by the Richmond School District as one of the potential schools to be shut down this year. I am not only concerned that the award-winning school, which was recognized by the district for its eco-wise initiatives, may be lost, but also the closure would have a huge impact on the sense of community that the school has established over the years. The school has created many activities and traditions for families in the area; including the Shellmont Community Christmas Parade and Earth Day Green Games. As well, members of the community frequently use the recently installed playground, exercise track and landscaped school grounds that were built with the help of a large donation from a community donor, a grant from the B.C. government and the help of the City of Richmond. Woodward was also fortunate to receive garden beds which were paid for by a sustainability grant from the Richmond School District. Also, the school was awarded a water bottle refilling station by the district as a recognition of all of the great ecowise initiatives they have at the school. It would be so unfortunate to close Woodward school when the district has invested so much in it. I hope they will reconsider the value and the commitment this community has put into the school. It is such a great community and neighbourhood. Marjorie Chu Richmond

Writer happily bears the unbearable lightness of retirement SHELLEYCIVKIN
Retirement For Beginners
believe I’ve finally got my groove back. Like Stella. I no longer wake up in the morning and wonder what I’m going to do today. Or this week. I have a plan. Not a dream. That was Martin Luther King Jr. Not to put too fine a point on it, but I have a schedule of sorts. I go to my personal trainer for rehab exercises for my banged-up knee on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Thursday nights, I go to a class on religion. Most afternoons at 4:30 p.m. I feed my 92-year-
old mother dinner in her nursing home. On Tuesday nights and Thursday mornings I go to a meditation sit (or sometimes I just contemplate going to a meditation sit). On Saturday mornings I go to my place of worship and feed my soul. In between I go to myriad doctors’ appointments, read, blog, go for walks with friends, and I admit it….watch my favourite TV shows. Is this a frivolous life? Some might think so. Others might not. A lot of my friends ask me how I’m adjusting to retired life, as though retirement is like a new set of orthotics or false teeth that take getting used to. I’m totally entrenched in retired life now that I have given myself permission to do what I like, when I like. Within
reason. As a 60-year-old woman, I no longer say stupid things like this: “If I can’t sleep at night, I have the freedom to stay up and write or read until the sun comes up.” Hey, let’s get real. If I did that it would take me at least a week to recover from lack of sleep. And I’d probably get sick. I’m not exactly frail and elderly, but let’s face it, most 60-year-olds don’t have the stamina of 20-somethings. We might talk a good game, but when push comes to shove, we need our sleep. We’re no longer spring chickens who stay up all night talking about the meaning of life over a few too many beers. Retirement has definitely given me a pal-
pable sense of freedom — the unbearable lightness of retirement. Actually, it’s pretty bearable. There are way fewer “must-do” items on my list, and way more “this-wouldbe-fun-to-try” items. I finally have the freedom to expand my mind, heart and soul in ways I could only dream of before. And I have all the time in the world to do it. You know that saying: “You should live every day as if it’s your last”? Well, in retirement you can. I’ve learned that retirement is not a destination but a journey. I’m learning to pack lighter and boy does that feel good! Shelley Civkin is a retired communications officer with the Richmond Public Library

2015 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT HIGHLIGHTS
A MESSAGE FROM MARY JORDAN CHAIR, BOARD OF DIRECTORS, VANCOUVER AIRPORT AUTHORITY On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for supporting YVR in 2015.
WE STRIVE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE TO YOU, OUR CUSTOMERS, NEIGHBOURS AND BUSINESS PARTNERS.
We welcome your comments and questions. Please email us at:
To view the complete Sustainability Report and learn about how we report on our four pillars— Economic, Environment, Social and Governance—please visit WWW.YVR.CA Join us at Vancouver Airport Authority’s Annual Public Meeting to ﬁnd out more about 2015 and our future plans. May 12 at YVR. Registration begins at 3:00pm. The meeting begins at 3:30pm. Details available at yvr.ca
@YVRAIRPORT VANCOUVERAIRPORT VANCOUVERINTERNATIONALAIRPORT
As a not-for-proﬁt organization, YVR is committed to our community. In 2015, we channelled this commitment through our three-year Strategic Plan, focusing our actions on competitive and sustainable objectives with a goal of reaching 25 million passengers by 2020. We aligned our operations under a renewed environmental plan, which sets ambitious emissions targets for 2020. To ensure we grow sustainably, we sought input from the community for YVR’s new 20-year Master Plan at our summer festivals and speaking engagements. We also continued to give back, contributing over $900,000 to support community initiatives such as Quest Food Exchange, the Nature Conservancy of Canada, Hub Cycling, Canucks Autism Network and many more. At our core is an engaged and driven team, dedicated to safety, health and security. This team worked hard to deliver a remarkable airport experience—and it didn’t go unnoticed. We once again made the BC’s Top Employers list in recognition of our great workplace. And for the ﬁrst time, Vancouver Airport Authority received the Best Health & Safety Culture award and the Gold award in the Transportation category of Canada’s Safest Employers.
Vantage Airport Group, our subsidiary, has grown into a very successful company. We determined that it was time to sell our 50 per cent stake, in order for Vantage to continue to grow and for YVR to focus on our ambitious Strategic Plan. The sale closed in late 2015 and will allow Vantage to acquire the funding it needs to pursue future largescale airport projects. YVR will continue to work with Vantage through a strategic partnership agreement that includes sharing of our employees’ expertise, knowledge and leading-edge approach to innovation. Thank you for contributing to our discussions, for choosing our airport and for being a part of YVR’s vision. We strive to be a world-class connecting hub, one that links passengers and products from around the world to British Columbia. We could not do this without the support of our partners, communities and employees, all of whom provide the foundation for our ongoing success.

Purple anything. “Purple has been recognized as the official color for the promotion of invisible illness awareness,” explained Dave Thomson, community outreach coordinator for Richmond Centre for Disability, which is hosting its 2016 Invisible Illness Awareness Forum this Saturday at Richmond City Hall from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday’s flash mob, from 8 - 9 a.m., will mark International Invisible Illness Awareness Day. The mob is particularly inspiring for Thomson given the difficulties many of the attendees have on a daily basis. “Many people with disabilities find mornings to be a very stressful. It can be quite a challenge getting up and out, as many deal with poor sleep quality and high pain levels,” explained Thomson, who is asking for support from members of the public. “Come provide some great motivation and a little bit of fun to a weekday morning. Wear your purple and come help us fill our parking lot with positive purple people!” exclaimed Thomson. Invisible illnesses include chronic diseases that may not otherwise show on a daily basis in a public setting — such as lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Anyone is welcome at Saturday’s forum, to listen and engage with guest speakers and other participants. Those with disabilities (visible or not) and anyone who plays a supportive role for any such person — be it a
spouse, family member, friend or colleague — would benefit from the dialogue, said Thomson. Thomson said it’s important for people to understand not just the physical pain and discomfort an illness can bring, but also the emotional toll it can take. That’s why the focus of this year’s forum is on intimacy. “The divorce rate for the chronic illness community is staggering,” said Thomson, who is rooted in the belief that openness about illnesses and disabilities is a positive step in the right direction. And the “hidden” quality of invisible illnesses makes it even more important for others to understand what one may be facing

internally. However, not everyone is comfortable speaking to others about their disability. That’s why there’s no pressure to speak at the forum and only taking in information is more than welcome, said Thomson, noting the forum is billed as a “safe, nonjudgmental and collaborative discussion session.” The keynote speaker will be relationship therapist Dr. Faizal Sahukhan. Information about resources for any particular illness will also be available. Questions are welcomed, admission is free, lunch is included and there will be door prizes.

stand in terms of the law? In Davies v. Elston, a Plaintiff cyclist was riding in a designated bike lane on Railway Avenue, in Richmond. While passing a parked truck in the adjacent curb lane, the cyclist commented loudly about how the truck mirror protruded outwards, in a fashion that obstructed trafZc in the bike lane. The truck owner — who was not in the vehicle at the time — heard the cyclist and decided to give chase. In the ensuing confrontations, heated words were exchanged, with the truck coming close enough to the cyclist, that the latter was able to place his hand on the passenger’s side window of the truck. When the truck pulled away, the cyclist
fell and suffered a fracture to his pelvis. In defending the claim, the motorist argued that the cyclist had been the author of his own misfortune. By placing his hand on a moving vehicle, the plaintiff was wholly at fault for the accident which caused his injuries. The court disagreed. In rendering judgment, the court noted that “...a driver of a motor vehicle can never be justiZed in deliberately using a motor vehicle to confront a cyclist who is riding a bike...” and that “...[a] driver of a motor vehicle is not entitled to impose a penalty of death or serious bodily harm on a cyclist just because the cyclist See Know page 21

Know what to do if you are a victim? From page 20 was rude or broke a trafZc rule.” Aside from knowing the rights and wrongs, what recourse do you have if you are the victim of a road rage incident? Last spring, a video of a Vancouver road rage incident went viral on social media, when a 26-year-old motorist was caught on camera punching another motorist through the driver’s window. The footage assisted the crown in bringing assault charges against the perpetrator. The fact that it happened in gridlock trafZc in front of numerous witnesses, provided little doubt as to what transpired in that incident. As
of time of writing, this matter is still pending . Beyond criminal charges though, can the victim of a road rage incident bring a claim for personal injury against ICBC? What happens when the atfault party has Yed the scene? In Chan v. ICBC, the plaintiff passenger suffered injuries after being struck by a brick, thrown from an oncoming vehicle. A claim was brought against ICBC as a nominal defendant, pursuant to section 24 of the Insurance (Motor Vehicle) Act. The issue arose as to whether the plaintiff’s injuries arose from the “use and operation of a motor vehicle.” The B.C. Court of Appeal ultimately held that the resulting injuries
need not be caused directly by the vehicle, as long as the use of the vehicle had in contributed to the injury in some way. The fact that the assailant was able to launch his attack from the vehicle, and subsequently used it for his escape, brought the incident within the protection of the insurance coverage for accidents involving unidentiZed motorists. While no one wants to be involved in a road rage incident, knowing where you stand does offer a measure of comfort should it happen.

ichmond’s Michael Seidelman loves a page-turner — the kind of book packed with cliff hangers that leaves you craving to know what happens next and simply cannot be put down. That’s what he aimed to produce with his first book, No One Dies in the Garden of Syn, which debuted April 26. But he’s not stopping there. He’s quit his job as an online marketer so he can spend the next year compiling part two of what will ultimately be a young adultfocused trilogy. “Writing, it’s something I’ve always enjoyed doing,” Seidelman, 39, said. “But it wasn’t until high school, when I was assigned to write a short story, that I realized it was something I was passionate about — and was good at. “And as soon as I graduated, I continued writing. I never stopped.” But it wasn’t just a love of writing that Seidelman enjoyed. He took great pleasure in reading the stories to classmates. “My stories have a lot of twists and shocks in them and I liked watching the reaction people had when I was telling them,” he said.

Unique tale of 'magical' cities Lulu Series: Art in the City ARIANAGALEANO Book Club
ust when I thought that there was nothing new under the sun, I stumbled upon A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab. At first glance, this fantasy has many elements that might be familiar to readers of the genre: invented languages, magic, a large cast of characters, and political drama. However, dig a little deeper and you might find, like I did, a novel like no other. Unique, is not a word that I use lightly when describing a book, but this one has earned it. Picture four different parallel worlds, each with a city named London. There is Red London, where magic flows freely, bringing beauty and laughter. There is Grey London, where magic has been gone for so long, no one believes it ever existed anymore. Then there is White London, where people and magic are in a constant fight for control.
And then there is Black London, but no one speaks of it any more. Once upon a time, anyone with some magic in them was able to cross from one world to another using magical doors and pathways. But then, Black London happened and the doors were closed forever. Only Antari magicians have the power to travel between worlds. Kell is the adopted son of the King and Queen of Red London. As the only Antari in Red London, Kell serves his adopted family by carrying messages between the royals from each London. When a series of unfortunate events have Kell fleeing into Grey London, he crosses paths with Delilah Bard, a pickpocket with a hunger for adventure. She first robs him, then saves his life, and then forces him into taking her with him because in her own words, Delilah would “rather die on an adventure than live standing still”. And Lilah might just get her wish when a lost relic from Black London resurfaces that threatens to destroy everything and everyone. I loved this book. It was a fantastic read filled with interesting and colourful characters, adventure, and an imaginative world unlike anything I’ve read before. Schwab has a way of presenting fantastic things in such a manner that even the unbelievable becomes believable and relatable. I recommend this book for those readers who want adventure, some excitement and even a bit of danger in their books. Ariana Galeano is a librarian with the Richmond Public Library

hen designing the built environment — including transit stations, libraries, parks and anything else that is constructed — there are many opportunities to consider beyond form and function. Architects, planners and designers can work with an artist to incorporate distinct elements that add a human touch to their sites, as well as impart messages and meaning into daily life. Seattle artist Norie Sato delves into the collaboration of art and design in the next Lulu Series: Art in the City lecture on Thursday, May 19 at Richmond City Hall. When creating for the public realm, Norie Sato starts with the site and context-driven ideas, and then finds the appropriate form and materials, striving to consider edges, transitions, culture and connections to the environment. In this way, her artistic response varies from site to site and her pieces, consequently, sometimes look as if they were created by different artists. Moreover, she cre-

ates in a variety of forms and media including sculpture, glass, plastic, metal, terrazzo floors, integrated design work, landscape, video and light. Sato’s artwork has included both a studio practice and art for public places over the past 30 plus years and her work graces transit/ transportation facilities, libraries, universities, infrastructure, parks and other civic structures. In 2014, she received the Public Art Network Leadership Award and the Washington State
Governor’s Art Award for an Individual Artist. Her work can be explored at NorieSato.com. Sato’s presentation, titled “Site and Specificity: Meaning Through a Personal Lens,” is the last of three events in the 2016 Lulu Series: Art in the City program.

n Grade 3 students in Sandy Long’s class at Spul’u’kwuks elementary display posters that promote a week-long fundraiser at the school to support those affected by the devastating fires in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Photo submitted
andy Long’s Grade 3 class at Spul’u’kwuks elementary are working hard this week to raise money for the Canadian Red Cross. After a very moving discussion about the Fort McMurray fire, the students wanted to help in any way they could and came up with the idea of trying to collect one loonie from each student in the school. They were deeply concerned about the families who have lost everything, the wild animals and pets, the firefighters and the police officers. As well, they wanted to talk about all the kindness that other Canadians were showing — people taking gas to stranded vehicles, people taking strangers into their homes, people handing out bottles of water along highways, people helping to rescue pets that had been left behind. “This Grade 3 class truly internalized the phrase ‘Canadians helping Canadians,’” Long said. “Being a teacher who cares very deeply about trying to develop empathy in my stu-
dents, I knew that this would be a wonderful project to guide the children through. “Whenever one has real-life situations to use as teachable moments, one needs to grab hold of them and show the students that no matter what our age. Everyone can care and help each other.” As well, the students were thrilled to learn that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged that the federal government will match donations. As one student said, “You mean he’ll double our money!” “Yes, I said, and a cheer went up in class,” Long said, adding that allowed the experience to be turned into a math lesson, as well. Long said the students have produced posters promoting the fundraiser and are excited about spending the rest of this week collecting money for the Canadian Red Cross. They were off to a good start Tuesday morning, collecting more than $1,000 on the first day of the campaign.

Richmond Sports Awards honours best of 2015 A
golden summer on the world stage has earned Magnus Batara the inaugural Richmond News Sports Person of the Year Award. The standout swimmer was honoured at last week’s 17th annual Richmond Sports Awards which recognized athletic achievements and contributions by city athletes, coaches, officials, builders and administrators in 2015. The 23-year-old starred for Canada at the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles, winning four gold medals. He touched the wall first in the 100 and 200 metre breaststroke, as well as to 100 butterfly. He added a fourth gold as a member of Canada’s 4x100 medley relay team. The World Games featured over 7000 athletes from 177 countries, competing 26 different sports.
The Sports Person of the Year Award adds to Batara’s decorated athletic career that also includes winning the Special Olympics B.C. Athletic Achievement Award in 2014. He has been competing in Special Olympic events for nine years and also excels in floor hockey, basketball and athletics. Batara was one of many recognized at the Richmond Sports Award banquet, held at the McMath Secondary School rotunda . The program is overseen by the Richmond Sports Council and led by the efforts of Terry Kehoe and longtime Richmond Review Sports Editor Don Fennell who was the evening’s master of ceremonies. There is a nomination window for a wide variety of categories each year and a selection committee determines the winners.
Others honoured on the night included longtime member/volunteer Nora Ann Wright who received the Richmond Sports Council Award of Distinction. Mike Gilles was presented
the Don Fennell Award of Distinction for his outstanding contribution to athletics in the Richmond school system, as well as in the community, for over 30 years. Rounding out the winners

Matti Academy showcases future at Junior Nationals
LIZA & STEVEN!
he Shakiru Matti Squash Academy showcased its present and future at last month’s Canadian Junior Championships in Markhan, ON. The Richmond-based program, which operates out of Sport Central, continued its excellent showing on the national stage in a variety of age divisions. While Matthew Toth added to his family’s already impressive accomplishments with a fourth place finish in the U19 Men’s Division and the Sportsmanship Award, the Matti Academy was turning heads at the youngest level as well. Gabriel Yun, 12, reached the championship match before falling to No. 1 seed Mohamed Kamal of Alberta (11-9, 11-4, 11-9). Yun’s run to silver included an upset win over No. 2 seed Griffen Manley (12-10, 11-5, 9-11, 11-5). Ten-year-old Jacob Lin then put another Matti Academy player on the podium with his surprising four game win (11-9, 11-5, 6-11,

11-6) over Manley in the bronze medal match. Meanwhile, Joseph Toth, who is also just 10, prevailed in the consolation bracket to place fifth, including a dramatic five game win over Alexander Yuzpe (11-9, 8-11, 8-11, 11-9, 12-10) in the final. “This is not only exciting for our academy but for the sport of squash in Canada,” said coach Shakiru Matti. “What Jacob was able to do at his age was the talk of the championships. He and Joseph are already the players
to beat at U13 next year.” No. 2 seed Sarah Cao lived up to her status by reaching the girls U13 final before falling to Molly Chadwick — 12-10, 11-9. 12-10. Cao had not lost a game in three previous matches. In the girls U17 draw, Cynthia Cao and Andrea Toth just missed out on podium finishes, placing fourth and fifth respectively. Matthew Toth lost a bronze medal match heartbreaker — falling in five to David Mill.
Richmond soccer standout commits to Simon Fraser
ichmond FC soccer product Riley Pang is part of Simon Fraser University’s 2016 recruiting class. The 6-foot-3 striker with U18 Fusion FC of the B.C. Premier Soccer League and the Richmond Hibernians of the Vancouver Metro Soccer League premier division officially committed to the Burnaby Mountain men’s program last month, joining Coquitlam’s Sam Lee. “We make an effort to go out and watch BC kids to build relationships with them and their families,” said SFU head coach Clint Schneider. “Sam and Riley are both terrific kids who come from fantastic families. They will fit our culture because they are both
focused on school and soccer.” Pang is winding down his Grade 12 year at Steveston-London Secondary School. Besides his development with Richmond FC and Fusion, he also spent some time with the Whitecaps Residency Program and attended a national U15 development camp. “Riley is physically ready for college soccer and already starts and plays minutes in a men’s league,” said Schneider. “He has all of the tools to make an impact straight away.” Schneider adds Pang fits the style of play he wants showcase. “Riley is fantastic in the air, very strong with his back to the goal, and he can finish,” he said. “Plus, he has a very high soccer IQ.”

BURGESS, Walter Edward
October 23, 1929 - May 4, 2016
. It is with much sadness we announce the sudden passing of Walter (Wally) Burgess on Wednesday May 4th of a heart attack. In 1993 Wally and Doreen moved to Qualicum Beach into the then new Chartwell subdivision from Burnaby. They both wanted to live out their retirement years in this wonderful area of BC. Without family members close by they developed many long term friendships some of which are alive today but sadly many of whom have passed on. Wally was an interesting man and one thing you could say about him is you remembered him, he loved to give and receive verbal jabs from the many friends in this community. He enjoyed his beer, he enjoyed making people laugh, and he enjoyed his many different cars, not only driving them but always cleaning them. As children we remember our Dad always having the cleanest car, never wanting to drive in the rain as it would get dirty, even in later life his car was important to him never being taken out of the garage if there was a cloud in the sky or the hint of rain. Wally was a good man, a good husband, a good father to 3 children, 5 grandchildren (pictured with Richelle his oldest granddaughter) and 3 great grandchildren. He had a tough, intimidating exterior but on the inside he was a real pussycat. Doreen predeceased Wally in 2005, after a period of time Wally felt the pull of Qualicum Beach and moved back to live with Marcelle Lascelles. They married and have been together until Wally’s sudden passing on Wednesday. Wally, you will be missed by Marcelle, your friends and of course your kids and grandchildren. Wally and Marcelle have chosen not to have a service but instead to all of you folks who have been touched by Wally over the years have a sip of your favourite lager, remember a crazy story that involved our father and in the end if it brings a smile to your face or a chuckle in your belly then he would be pleased as he truly loved to make people laugh.
