NEWS: Rap song causes safety stir among local Chinese community 3

n Foody World has been temporarily shut down after six cases of the deadly food poisoning disease Listeriosis was found to have originated from processed meats from the supermarket in the north of the city. One of the customers, who had underlying health conditions, died last week.

Death linked to food bug Six Listeria cases traced to store by health chiefs date back to July ALANCAMPBELL Staff Reporter

ACAMPBELL@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

A

n outbreak of the potentially deadly Listeriosis disease at a Richmond grocery store - which is linked to the death of a customer – can be traced back three months. On the weekend, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) issued a warning that six people had been hospitalized after eating processed meat from Foody World in north Richmond, which has been temporarily shut down. One of the six died last week, but VCH said it won’t be possible to confirm if the death was caused by the outbreak as the person in question had “underlying health conditions.” However, the Richmond News learned on Tuesday that the first two cases of Listeriosis were reported and confirmed in late July,

with another two in August and two more in October. It was only last Friday, Oct. 14, that health officials were able to finally narrow it down to Foody World on Sexsmith Road, near Garden City Road and Sea Island Way. “The incubation period for (the Listeria bacteria) could be a couple of months, so it’s difficult to investigate,” explained Claudia Kurzac, VCH’s manager for environmental health programs in Richmond. A number of stores were named as being used by people in the first few cases that were reported, said Kurzac, making it problematic to accurately trace the source of the outbreak. “Foody World came up, but so did many others and we had to look into all the others, as well,” she said. “In early October, the fifth case was reported and only then were we able to narrow

it down to Foody World. “On Oct. 7, we carried out a detailed inspection of Foody World; preliminary results took a week and on the 14th we had it confirmed to be Foody World.” The sixth case, said Kurzac, was reported between Oct. 7 and 14, and it was that person who subsequently died. None of the other five is still in hospital, as far as Kurzac is aware. It’s understood that the customers affected had all consumed processed meat, in particular pork and beef, from the store over the last few months. VCH has warned customers of the store not to consume any produce or ready-to-eat foods made in-house at Foody World. Potentially contaminated items include: All ready-to-eat meat products such as See Health chief page 4

Rap song sparks safety concerns: Activists Alan Campbell

Staff Reporter acampbell@richmond-news.com

A

two-year-old song from a little-known rapper has stirred up members of the local Chinese community, prompting some of them to question their safety in Richmond. Lyrics contained within American rapper YG’s Meet the Flockers track appear to encourage would-be criminals to specifically target Chinese homes for break-ins, due to the perception that such households will be laden with cash and jewelry. The controversy has sparked a continentwide petition for the song to be banned, which has now garnered more than 100,000 signatures and will soon be submitted to the Whitehouse in the U.S. capital. Chinese people come Locally, a group claiminto this country; ing to be “activists for many don’t speak the the Chinese language, so they don’t community” — but which feel comfortable redoesn’t yet porting it or think they have a name will get into trouble or — has created several something. discussion forums on the – Clint Cheng social media platform WeChat, with many of its 180 or so members citing the song amid concerns for their safety in Richmond. Ahead of an awareness rally outside the Canada Line Brighouse Station on Saturday, one of group’s leaders, Clint Cheng, said the group believes the Chinese community

n Activists A ti i t outside t id th the B Brighouse igh C Canada d Line Li Station St ti callll ffor iincreased d safety. f t Th They are concerned d the Chinese community in Richmond is being targeted. Photo by Gord Goble/Special to the News

in Richmond is being targeted because of a stereotype that “people in the Chinese community are rich and always carry lots of cash.” “We just feel there are a lot of crimes taking place in this area and people are not reporting it because of cultural issues,” said Cheng, who, along with a dozen or so fellow members, held signs in English outside the station in Saturday’s pouring rain. “This rap song is adding to people’s feeling that they’re being targeted.” Cheng pointed out that the rally was to call for safety for everyone, not just the Chinese community, before adding that some of the WeChat discussions surround “equal rights for Chinese-Canadians.” “We demand safety; we want law and order for everyone.” Although Richmond has a relatively low

crime rate compared to neighbouring municipalities, Cheng claims the figures are skewed due to the assertion that people in the Chinese community, particularly in Richmond, are more reluctant to report incidents — such as robberies and break-ins — to police due to cultural differences. “Chinese people come into this country; many don’t speak the language, so they don’t feel comfortable reporting it or think they will get into trouble or something,” explained Cheng. “I encourage them all to report a crime if they see one happening or are the victims of one.” A “lack of participation from the Chinese community” in many aspects of daily life is also part of the safety problem, said Cheng. “I’ve been (in Canada) almost 20 years and the low turnout at elections is one of the worst

in the province,” he said. “They come from a country where there is no election and there are language barriers when they come here; they are, unfortunately, more focused on their studies and getting a job than participating.” But just because some members of the Chinese community “don’t participate or report crimes, doesn’t mean we should be dismissed,” added Cheng. One of the people participating in the group’s online chat forum is Wendy Yuan — a former Liberal Party of Canada candidate and failed nominee for the Steveston-Richmond East riding — who has been sitting on the City of Richmond’s intercultural advisory committee for almost two years. Yuan said she is well aware of the safety concerns in some corners of the local Chinese community. “There’s this perception that, rightly or wrongly, due to the song, it’s OK to break into a Chinese home and that it’s promoting break-ins,” Yuan said. “There is also a myth in some Chinese cultures that if the money is stolen, but you don’t get hurt, then it was the money that stopped you from getting injured. They are linking this song directly to the break-ins.” As for members of the Chinese community not reporting crimes, Yuan said she is at pains to urge people to get involved and encourages them “to learn some English.” “They have to get out of their comfort zones (after immigrating). When I came here 32 years ago, there weren’t many Chinese and that pushed me into learning English. “Today, in Richmond especially, they don’t have to speak English to get by every day.” According to the City of Richmond’s online criminal activity map, there have been 485 residential break-ins this year, spread liberally around the city’s populated areas and not confined to specific communities.

Former Global TV reporter expected to run in Richmond PHILIPRAPHAEL Staff Reporter

PRAPHAEL@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

T

he Thanksgiving turkey is a memory, the Halloween decorations are going up, and Christmas is around the corner, but it’s not too early for speculation about who’s going to run in Richmond in the coming provincial election next spring. With Richmond’s BC Liberal incumbents all in place to run again, the focus is on filling in the remaining blanks, including who will run for the governing Liberals in the newly created riding of Richmond-Queensborough. Although official party sources have not announced who they will have on the ballot come May 9, the News has learned that

former Global BC reporter Jas Johal has been asked to run. Johal, who left the TV news business two years ago to become director of communications for the BC LNG Alliance, has been courted by the Liberal party and may have finally found a landing spot in the riding that straddles Richmond and New Westminster. The News was unable to contact Johal and his former email address had an automatic reply that indicated he was no longer with the alliance. As for who might run against Johal, if he becomes a candidate, the NDP is looking at Jack Trovato, a secondary school teacher in Burnaby, who ran for the NDP in the 2015 federal election in Richmond Centre, finishing third behind Conservative Party winner and incumbent Alice Wong and Liberal challenger Lawrence Woo.

Trovato also tried his hand at municipal politics in the 2014 vote, running for school trustee. He finished 14th at the polls that elected the top seven candidates n Jas Johal for the board of education. Trovato told the News that, while the process of becoming a candidate for the NDP is still a ways down the road, he was keen on representing the riding in a community he “deeply cares about.” In the riding of Richmond-Steveston, political commentator Ramesh Ranjan is mulling a bid to displace BC Liberal John

Yap. And community activist Henry Yao is considering putting his name up for the NDP in Richmond Centre-South, where 25year veteran MLA Linda Reid is running. Ranjan was an NDP campaign worker during the 2015 federal election. And Yao ran for one of eight seats on Richmond city council in 2014, garnering 4,412 votes (1.79 per cent), good enough for 21st place overall at the polls. Yao said he chose that riding because that is where he spent much time as a youth worker and has connections in the community. No word yet on who is thinking of taking on Richmond Centre-North incumbent Teresa Wat, B.C.’s Minister of International Trade, Asia Pacific Strategy and Multiculturalism – who ran successfully as a political newcomer in 2013.

created the National Disaster Mitigation Program in 2015 to reduce the impact of natural disasters, including recurring flood risks. The federal funding also depends on matching provincial funds. The city has already determined that it will need to raise its dykes by about 1.2 metres within the next 100 years, as a result of global warming. A major part of its plan is to rebuild Shady Island to protect Steveston

Village. The long-term plan is to create sea gates at both ends of the island to enclose the village during high tides and storm surges. This will avoid having to disrupt the existing waterfront dyke, where businesses, homes and walking paths exist. The harbour had once been closed off at the south end before, by a rocky dyke, however this led to stagnant water flow in the harbour.

woman was targeted by a pair of thieves in a City Centre parking lot in broad daylight last week. According to the Richmond RCMP, shortly after 5:30 p.m. last Tuesday (Oct. 11), the 55-year-old was sitting in her car in the parking lot of Richmond Centre when she was allegedly approached by a man. The suspect allegedly told her that something was wrong with her car and, as she got out of her vehicle to check along with the man, a second suspect is believed to have snuck into her car through the open driver’s side door and removed her purse. The two suspects then fled on foot to an awaiting grey/silver car, possibly a Toyota, with gold-coloured wheels. One of the suspects is described as possibly being Hispanic, 20 to 30-years-old, of medium build, perhaps wearing a red hat and a red jacket. The second suspect was wearing all black.

“The bright clothing worn by (one of the suspects) and the dark clothing worn by (the other suspect) does not appear to be coincidental,” said Richmond RCMP’s Cpl. Dennis Hwang. “We are treating it as an organized distraction theft and we are reaching out to other law enforcement agencies who may have encountered similar crimes to share intelligence.” The Richmond RCMP has a number of tips to better protect oneself from this type of theft: z If someone approaches you stating something is amiss with your car, politely thank them and wait; z If you are exiting the car, remove your vehicle keys, and lock your vehicle before checking any reports of damage; z When leaving a bank, or ATM, be cognizant of your surroundings, especially if you have withdrawn large amounts of currency; z If possible, keep your purse/ valuables in your trunk. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call 604-278-1212, or email Richmond_Tips@rcmp.grc.gc.ca.

Resuscitation order ‘flawed’ Kim Pemberton The Province

L

ori Wang will never forget the image of her 84-yearold father gasping and choking on his own blood while in cardiac arrest, and her desperate attempts to get staff at Richmond Hospital to help him. She said nurses refused to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Zaixing Wang because a doctor had written a do-not-resuscitate order on his medical chart after assessing him in the emergency department on Sept. 21, 2015. “The blood was pouring out of his mouth and I pressed the red button, but no one came, so I ran into the corridor shouting for help. This is when I learned they wouldn’t resuscitate him. The nurses were just wiping his blood away,” she said. “He choked on his own blood from the lungs, when resuscitation needs to be conducted immediately without delay. And yet, standing by his bed watching him gasping for air and turning blue, the nurses refused, even at my repeated and desperate request, to lay a finger to help him. “Instead, the assigned attending nurse spent those critical few minutes debating with me why my dad would, ‘Not make it,’ that he was a, ‘No code,’ and asked me to contact my mom to deliver the bad news.

“I simply could not fathom how this could happen in the hospital when medical professionals were in arm’s reach.” After pleading with the nurses to help save her dad, Dr. Edgar Lau, the internist and respirologist who placed the do-not-resuscitate order on Zaixing Wang’s medical chart, was called. Wang said her father was revived with CPR around 10 minutes after he went into cardiac arrest. However, he never regained consciousness and died Sept. 29. Lau would later tell two review panels looking into the case that he explained his treatment plan to the family, which would have included putting a DNR order on Wang’s chart in the event of “acute cardiopulmonary deterioration,” given his “poor pulmonary reserve.” In the recently completed

reviews, both the College of Physicians and Surgeons and Vancouver Coastal Health Authority’s Patient Care Quality Office accepted Lau’s statement that the doctor had that conversation with the family. But Wang said the doctor never told the family a donot-resuscitate order was being placed on her father’s medical chart, and “now it’s his word against mine.” According to the review by the college, the signature of the patient or substitute decision maker is optional for a DNR form. Coastal Health spokeswoman Anna Marie D’Angelo said a physician doesn’t require a family’s consent for a do-not-resuscitate order for someone who is very ill with complex conditions.

Flag policy raised in Richmond Graeme Wood

Staff Reporter gwood@richmond-news.com

A

recent flap over foreign flags being raised at Vancouver City Hall has Coun. Chak Au clarifying that Richmond’s policy is different than their cross-river counterpart. Au told the Richmond News that flagraising ceremonies are done only for official visits by foreign dignitaries, however community groups wishing to raise a flag at Richmond City Hall must receive approval from the City of Richmond. City spokesperson Ted Townsend provided the News with the details of Richmond’s flag policy. Notably, foreign flags may be flown for official visits only, and only from sunrise to sunset at city hall’s plaza. The Canadian flag must always accompany the foreign flag, as well. As it relates to criticisms by some members of the Chinese community in Vancou-

ver that China’s flag was flown at its city hall — considering that country’s poor human rights history and undemocratic political system — Richmond’s policy appears to potentially account for such circumstances. “The city reserves the right to decide whether or not to fly the flag of the nation when there is political unrest or conflict in that nation. The decision to fly the flag of any nation neither implies nor expresses support for the politics of those nations,” notes the city’s policy. The policy also states: “Events involving flag-raising ceremonies may be held at city hall upon request and at the city’s discretion.” Members of the local Filipino community have held a flag-raising ceremony at city hall for the past two years. The policy stipulates that the Canadian flag on top of city hall can never be substituted for another flag, even for filming purposes.

Consent not considered mandatory From page 6 “They need to discuss it with the family, certainly, but it’s not a consent decision,” D’Angelo said. “If you don’t agree (to having a do-not-resuscitate order), there’s a dispute process to get a second opinion. “It is generally accepted in Canadian health care that medical doctors need not offer interventions that they do not consider will benefit a patient.” Wang said her father’s diagnosis of bronchiectasis — a condition that leads to gradual deterioration of the

lungs — was chronic, but it wasn’t terminal. “I feel they can basically sign someone’s life away,” she said. “The family needs to give clear, informed consent. I didn’t sign anything and my dad didn’t sign anything. Why would we even take him to hospital if it wasn’t to seek treatment? “For any other tests my father needed I had to sign, but for something as serious as a DNR I didn’t have to sign. If this is truly the hospital’s policy not to require a family member’s signature on a DNR order, it’s really flawed.”

Wang said her dad was admitted around 10:30 a.m. to Richmond Hospital after coughing up blood. His respiratory arrest happened after he was transferred to a hospital ward around 5 p.m. and just an hour previously a nurse had seen him well enough to go to the washroom unassisted. Wang questions why Lau failed to meet the family that day to directly spell out the full range of medical options and prognosis for recovery, which she felt would have been high if he was given CPR immediately in the event of a cardiac arrest.

Speak out against waste facility Dear Editor, As you all might know, Harvest Power was just given a four-year permit approval to continue to operate their business of processing all of Metro Vancouver green cart waste at their facility on York Road in Richmond. The 46-page document looks impressive, and it should because of the considerable outcry last winter of residents who were very upset with the noxious smells that were outside their homes and seeping inside, particularly at night and in the morning. The summer months were good, but as soon as mid-September rolled around, so did the stink. Could it be that the mountains of waste do not like damp, cool weather, and the heat from the inside pushes the volatile organic compounds to the surface and into our air shed? I am not a professional, all I know is that I live 15 km west of

this plant and if it’s revolting to me, it must be affecting others, as well. Thanksgiving was so smelly it spoiled our holiday. It appears that Metro Vancouver doesn’t care about the residents’ concerns, and it seems quite apparent that the mayor and council of Richmond do not care about this issue because they are allowing it to happen, and it’s only getting worse.

We have two weeks left to appeal this permit as citizens who are fed up with this disgrace to our quality of life. All I want is to be able to smell clean air, not air that upsets my stomach. Give me your thoughts on my Facebook page “Stop the Stink in Richmond.” Burke Elizabeth Austin Richmond

Bridge interchange a potential boon for drivers Dear Editor, Re: “Interchange a danger, eyesore: Staff,” News, Oct. 12. I would like to address the recent article on the Massey Interchange as someone who’s had extensive driving experience in B.C., Ontario, and in New York City. I was recently back in Vancouver as a co-op student, and made a daily commute by vehicle to North Vancouver. First of all, I agree with the need for some greenspace on the interchange. Given the benefits to Richmond residents, I would like to know what the specific cost of adding and maintaining the greenspace is. Other than that, I think this interchange actually makes a significant improvement to the safety, and traffic of south-east Richmond for the following reasons. 1. Pedestrians will now be separated from traffic via tunnels and elevators, and will be one less thing for drivers to keep track of as they make turns. Right now, pedestrians have to cross a highway merge entrance to access the bus stop along Steveston Highway on the bridge. This is a section of road where drivers are concerned about getting up to speed and merging with traffic. 2. Industrial trucks using a separate exit will reduce the load on No. 5 Road/Steveston inter-

n The proposed new interchange for the bridge to replace the Massey Tunnel would help move traffic quicker and in a safer manner, suggests letter writer Aaron Yim. File photo

section — which has had 1,100 accidents since 2005. For many years, it has made ICBC’s list of most dangerous intersections! 3. I’m not sure what Victor Wei (Richmond’s director of transporttion) means when he refers to dead space between lanes. Is he concerned that drivers are unable to keep track of lanes? B.C.’s easy driving conditions and examination process, with little emphasis and relaxed attitude towards driving, needs improvement. In Ontario, examiners ask to see how much highway driving you’ve done with your N (called the G2), and will often refuse to evaluate you if not enough has been done. A real merge onto a highway is a

part of the N exit exam in Ontario, requiring drivers to reach at least 100 km/h to merge onto the highway. In Richmond, two of the three routes do not require an actual merge into traffic (Bridgeport Road exits onto a dedicated lane, Alderbridge onto Hwy. 91 east). To add to this, I would also like to know if the bridge has spots for traffic enforcement vehicles to stop near the fast lane of the highway and at the end of the bridge deck to enforce the “keep right except to pass” law. Since some highways (especially Hwy. 91) are often saturated, and only have two lanes, B.C. drivers may not be aware of the need to move over. In fact, it would be even better

if examiners themselves would enforce section 150 of the Motor Vehicle Act, requiring vehicles to keep to the right if they are not passing. Any ticket-worthy offence is already an instant fail on the exam and it would be awesome to see examiners help improve flow on our highways! 4. With different lanes for traffic moving towards No. 6 Road and traffic merging onto Hwy. 99 north, there will no longer be vehicles trying to squeeze onto the on-ramp when coming down the bridge. 5. Vehicles exiting off Hwy. 99 north will no longer have to come to a complete stop around a blind corner. This reduces the chance of a high-speed rear end collision. 6. With an actual bridge, I propose a variable speed minimum when moving up the bridge decks. The Nordel on-ramp to the Alex Fraser Bridge is perpetually jammed as drivers seem unable to find the bottom of their accelerator pedal to get up to speed. Hwy. 99 south through the Massey Tunnel rarely moves faster than 60 km/h when leaving the tunnel for similar reasons. Thank you for allowing me to share some of my observations from my travels. I truly believe this upgrade interchange would be a huge boon to anyone living in south-east Richmond. Aaron Yim Waterloo, ON

LETTERSto the Editor

Local papers are all I read

Consider the source

Dear Editor, Re: “Kudos to the News(papers),” Voices, Oct. 14. After reading your editorial about the usefulness of newspapers, I have to say I agree. The only papers I read are community papers, such as yours and, online, the Delta Optimist, and others. I always watch for the Richmond News to arrive, and I read it all. Please keep up the good work. Thank You Dennis Sicard Richmond

Dear Editor, Re: “Low density means high prices,” Letters, Oct. 14. Lest we forget, Mr. Ransford, you are a real estate guru. No wonder you want more land for sale. Have you not made enough money yet? The Richmond we knew and loved is now a land of mansions and condos. Neither interest most of us. Take your tale of woe somewhere else. Barbara Moxin Campbell River

Reid has gone over and above Dear Editor, Re: “Charity versus services,” Voices, Oct. 7. Thank you for speaking to our granddaughter, Lauren, and believing her poem worthy of publication. And yes, it has moved and inspired many. Thank you, too, for pub-

lishing the advertising feature celebrating Linda Reid’s 25 years of service to our community. We have known Linda for those 25 years and can attest to her hard work, dedication and integrity. In the early 90s, we asked Linda for advice on how we might enhance the con-

tinuum of palliative care by establishing a free-standing hospice as an alternative to hospital and home. She listened, acknowledged the value of our vision and supported us always. For this, we are grateful. Tony and Nancy Yurkovich Richmond

MLAs’ promise rings hollow Dear Editor, Re: “Saved by the seismic bell,” Feature, Oct. 14. As a grandparent whose grandson for the past six years has attended two different elementary schools in Richmond, I have followed with great interest the recent, and belated, pre-election, letter from the three Liberal MLA’s — Teresa Wat, Linda Reid and John Yapp — on the fact that just three of Richmond’s 48 schools have, to date, been seismically upgraded. Richmond, because of its geographic location on a delta, is known to be at high risk in an earthquake. The fact that the district hasn’t had a school upgraded since 2011 is nothing short of disgraceful. And Victoria’s absurd 95 per cent capacity demand, before it was withdrawn, was at the root of this unfair and unacceptable situation. The three Richmond Liberal MLA’s have acted now only because of the growing parental revolt and thus their new-found promise for action has a hollow ring to it. But seismic upgrading is not the only serious shortcoming in this district.

Going back more than a decade, Richmond was one of the province’s top districts in providing English-as-a-second language programs, services and supports to ESL students, be they refugees, immigrants or nonEnglish-speaking families. Richmond was, at that time, a beacon for other districts. Thanks to the BC Liberals’ ongoing assault on our K-12 public schools, Richmond’s once highly-regarded ESL program is now but a shadow of its former self. If you are in doubt about this, read the district’s former ESL co-ordinator’s report on the detailed cutbacks and the disappearance of key language programs. The prolonged silence from Yap, Reid and Wat on language issues and overall cuts in Richmond schools is shamefully deafening. It’s time to send strong and active electoral representatives from Richmond to Victoria in May of next year.

The Community Connection With Your Richmond MLAs Housing Affordability In recent years, housing prices have increased significantly in the Metro Vancouver area including Richmond, reflecting the growth in our population and housing demand. It is our government’s top priority to increase housing supply and affordability, so that everyone can realize their homeownership dreams. In September, our government committed to make the largest housing investment in a single year by any province in Canada. With the $500 million funding, 2,900 units will be created in partnership with stakeholders such as non-profit societies and local governments. This is on top of the $355 million investment already announced in February, bringing the total to 4,900 affordable rental housing that will be created for low-to-moderate income renters. In fact, there are many government programs which are already increasing housing affordability for people in need. For Richmond, over $16 million was invested last year to subsidize housing and rent supplements for close to 4,000 households. This includes providing support for more than 2,200 senior households and more than 1,500 family households.

John Yap’s Constituency Office #115-4011 Bayview Street, Richmond, BC, V7E 0A4 Tel: 604-241-8452

The large housing investment and other housing affordability actions recently implemented have shown our determination to improve housing affordability. Our government will continue to strive to make sure our province continues to be the best place to live, work and raise a family.

Wellness club puts heart into C4

THE CASE OF THE HAUNTED CANNERY!

Alan Campbell

Staff Reporter acampbell@richmond-news.com

A

fter raising the most money across the coastal Vancouver area in this year’s Heart and Stroke Big Bike event, the Richmond Wellness Club, as a reward, got to place an automated external defibrillator (AED) in the community location of its choice. And, given its central location and high foot traffic, the club opted for the relatively new City Centre Community Centre (C4) on Minoru Boulevard. The club received the honour from the Heart and Stroke Foundation after raising an impressive $12,241 for the Big Bike ride earlier this year. As a result of the AED being installed, C4 staff will receive orientation and training on how to use the machine. “…to be able to make this life-saving equipment available in our community, as a result of our hard work — that’s really special,” said Tim To, vice president of Richmond Wellness Club. For 24 years, the club has participated in the Big Bike event, raising more than $130,000 to support life-saving research and programs. “The Richmond Wellness Club has been an incredible supporter of the lifesaving work of the Heart and Stroke Foundation,” said Joan Mann, area manager for the foundation. “Their commitment and generosity over 24 years is remarkable, and it is so fitting that they are getting this local recognition for their efforts, and in a way that will help to save lives close to home.” Cardiac arrest strikes suddenly and affects

Without immediate help, someone in cardiac arrest could suffer brain damage within three minutes and after 12 minutes, survival is unlikely. AEDs are small, portable devices that deliver an electrical shock to the heart to allow it to get back into a normal rhythm after a cardiac arrest. They can be used quickly and safely by the general public before emergency services arrive. AED use combined with CPR in the first few minutes of a cardiac arrest can double the chance of survival.

Stereotype sendups hit home EVEEDMONDS Editor

EDITOR@RICHMOND-NEWS.COM

t’s risky business playing with stereotypes. The trick is finding the balance between sending them up, yet recognizing the kernels of truth from which they come. King of Yees, which had its Canadian premier Friday evening at Gateway Theatre, deftly walks that line — for the most part. The “madcap adventure” as the program describes it, plays on various cliches about Chinese culture as it manifests itself in North America, but it does so with heart and a certain authenticity. A scene when two Asian actors playing Asian actors are trying to find the right way to say the word “Chinese” is hilarious. However, there are moments, either because of forced acting or a lack of flow in the script, where the play gets clunky and the suspension of disbelieve drops. King of Yees opens with a young woman, Lauren, played by Andrea Yu, staging a play she wrote about her father and life in San Francisco’s Chinatown. As she works with her two AsianAmerican actors (affording plenty of great quips about type-casting in the theatre business) her dad, Larry, wonderfully played by Gateway’s artistic director Jovanni Sy, struts across the n Lauren, played by Andrea Yu, takes on the dragon dancer as she gathers the three things she needs to open the magic door to the Yee Association. Photo by David Cooper

stage talking on his cell phone, telling whoever, he’s in the middle of Lauren’s play. In other words, this work is operating on many levels. King of Yees, written by Lauren Yee, not only follows her own journey as she re-connects with her father and her culture, it also parallels the politics of the Bay area. In the play, Lauren’s father is desperate to retain some connection to his Chinese ancestry and pass that on to his daughter. This means trying to maintain the Yee Association — which, after all, has to compete with the Wong Association. This also means working tirelessly as

a volunteer for Leland Yee, a senator from San Francisco, simply because they share the same last name. And here’s where fiction meets fact. Leland Yee is an actual politician who is currently serving time in a Texas jail on corruption charges. Shrimp Boy, another character in the play, is also a real Asian gangster, also in jail in part in connection with Leland Yee’s indictment. And if that’s not reality enough, early on, an actor planted in the audience, jumps up and starts challenging the playwright on the fact shes failed to address the issues of affordable housing, the gentrification of the Chinatown area and misogyny of all-male Chinese associations. But there’s no danger of this feeling like the 6 o’clock news. In the second act, the play launches into full-on fable, with Lauren (the character) encountering mythical creatures, answering riddles and seeking the three magical ingredients she needs to open the doors to connect with her father. It’s an ambitious project to bring together so many diverse elements and, for the most part, it works. But when it doesn’t, it becomes the vary cliches it aims to ridicule. King of Yees runs at the Gateway Theatre until Oct. 22.

hinking outside the white cube. That’s what the incoming director of the Richmond Art Gallery (RAG) is planning to achieve when he starts his new job next Monday (Oct. 24). Shaun Dacey, who replaces the outgoing Rachel Rosenfield Lafo, told the News he wants to build on the gallery’s fine reputation for showcasing works inside the Richmond Cultural Centre by reaching out to other areas in the community. Lafo is moving to Portland, Oregon, returning to the city where she worked years ago as associate curator at the Portland Art Museum. “In my previous position at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Downtown Vancouver, I developed an offsite artist residency program at a local marina with support from the Vancouver park board among others,” Dacey said in an email. “Through this, I hosted artists, local and international, to develop projects that existed in public, beyond the walls of the gallery. There was also an element to the work that considered active participation and collaboration with non-arts focused publics. For instance, one artist I worked with, Keg de Souza from Australia, has produced a series of workshops and collaborative installations considered

local food culture within the context of urban development and displacement. “This included inviting participants to develop a collaborative map of local histories in Chinatown and leading an indigenous foraging and jam making workshop, to name a few,” he said.” n Shaun Dacey is leaving his post at the Contemporary Art GalDacey added an important aspect as lery in Vancouver to become the new director at the Richmond Art Gallery.

uch more of Richmond’s history is now just a computer mouse click away. The City of Richmond Archives has launched a new and enhanced online database, presenting a convenient clickable map searching feature and double the amount of photographs to access. This upgraded database allows the archives to provide a new level of efficient online service, available 24 hours a day through the City of Richmond’s website (Richmond.ca). “The new online database makes it easier for users to engage with, and access the unique contents of the City of Richmond Archives,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “The Richmond Archives is a vibrant organization with an active volunteer group, including the dedicated Friends of the Richmond Archives. It is fitting that we now have a dynamic website which reflects the work that we do here at the City of Richmond Archives, collecting and preserving the rich 137-year history of the city.” The new site, made possible by funding from a 2015 one-time, council expenditure, has the capacity to easily add new content as material is acquired, processed and digitized. The new site improves the user’s experience by having an advanced map search, popular topics for all records search, high-resolution photographs, a user-friendly interface, simplified navigation and handy search tips. Newly featured on the site are clickable maps that allow users to focus their search to a particular location. There are more than 1,000 maps now available online which show Richmond’s development from a small fishing and farming community to a large modern city. The new site also features more than 5,000 newly digitized photographs from Ted Clark’s vast photographic collection of streetcars, trolley coaches, Interurban trams and trains. Clark, a Richmond resident and streetcar enthusiast, developed a significant collection of prints, negatives, and slides admired by traction enthusiasts across Canada. His Interurban Tram collection has its own convenient search page, as does the BC Packers collection.

SPORTS Beyond the Scores

Rep Classic brings top teams to Oval Mark Booth

Sports Editor mbooth@richmond-news.com

Take the most successful girls association in the province and combine it with a world class venue. It’s no wonder the Pacific Coast Female Rep Hockey Classic has quickly evolved into one of the top tournaments in the region. The fourth annual event, which gets underway on Friday, features six teams battling in the Midget, Bantam and Pee Wee Divisions. Half of them are coming from outside of Metro Vancouver. All but 10 of the games will take place at the Richmond Olympic Oval including the finals on Sunday. The Ravens are coming off a banner 201516 campaign that saw two of their three rep teams capture provincial championships last spring. Tony Lindsay is back in charge of the Bantam rep squad after take a one-year hiatus to guide his daughter’s Midget “C” team. The veteran coach, who has enjoyed plenty of success in girls and boys hockey, led the Bantam Ravens to the B.C. title two seasons ago. He is also assisting the association in player development and helped out tournament director Christine Soon in recruiting for this year’s event — ensuring all three divisions are highly competitive. His team’s schedule this weekend includes the St. Albert Raiders — currently ranked No. 1 in Alberta. All 18 entries are guaranteed at least four games with three 20-minute stop time periods — the same format they will see at their respective provincial championships. “It’s pulling in not only the top teams in B.C. but from elsewhere too,” said Lindsay. “The attraction is it being a good icebreaker

tournament for this stage of the season to see exactly how their team stacks up against everyone else. “Playing at the Olympic Oval is also a big draw. The out-of-town teams love it, as do the parents.” Lindsay figures his team will not only be in championship contention this weekend but next March at provincials as well. His roster

includes four players who have crossed over from Pee Wee boys rep hockey — a trend he is actually seeing less off in recent years thanks to growing opportunities for girls to develop their game. “We have a lot of depth in our organization right now and I think that has a lot to do with with the skill development that is happening at our younger age levels,” added Lindsay.

“We are seeing the benefits of that as the players get older with two clear (competitive) paths in our association to take.” The Pacific Coast Rep Classic will conclude Sunday with the Bantam (1:30 p.m.) and Midget (3:30 p.m.) finals on the Oval North Rink while Oval South Rink will host the Pee Wee championship game at 12:45 p.m.

ugh Boyd Trojans will play their biggest home game since the 2014 provincial playoffs when the No. 1 ranked Seaquam Seahawks visit Friday night in a clash of unbeaten teams in B.C. High School Football’s Western AA Conference. The Trojans are fresh off a bye week and will put their perfect record on the line (5-00) against the high-powered Seahawks (70-0) with a 7 p.m. kickoff. The showdown is part of a pivotal three-week stretch that will conclude the regular season and determine Boyd’s playoff seeding. The Trojans are coming off a 27-0 win over Frank Hurt two weeks ago and also produced earlier conference victories over

Nanaimo (42-0) and Windsor (28-14). Now, all three phases off their game will face their biggest challenge of the season against a multi-threat Seaquam team. The North Delta school is led by Grade 11 twins Jalen and Tyson Philpot — sons of former B.C. Lions star running back Cory Philpot. Jalen is the team’s featured tailback, averaging over seven yards per carry. Tyson is the the Seahawks’ top receiver with nearly 400 yards through six games. Quarterback Josh Haydu is also enjoying an outstanding season with over 800 yards passing. “They really have some big play kids,” said Boyd head coach Bill Haddow. “They run a lot of single back sets with (Jalen) and will use Tyson on sweep jets too. They also have done a lot of damage on special teams and that’s something we have to be very aware of and keep working on in practice this

week.” Boyd will counter with one of the top interior lines in the province that can control the line of scrimmage and open running lanes for standout back Reace Mok who is averaging over 10 yards per carry. He will eclipse the 700-yard plateau for the season on Friday. Tyler Moxin also gives the Trojans an experienced quarterback who will need to make quick reads and decisions against the Seahawks’ pressure defence. “The old saying ‘your best defence can be your best offence,’ holds true here,” added Haddow. “If we can establish our running game, it will help keep them off the field. “We have fortunately been healthy all season and are ready to go.” The Seahawks will enter the game on short rest, having defeated Nanaimo’s John Barsby Bulldogs 40-19 on Monday.

nine minutes remaining, but the Panthers sealed the outcome on a pair from Logan Hunter, firing 48 shots at goaltender Merek Pipes. It was a similar script two nights earlier at Minoru where the Delta Ice Hawks broke a tight game wide open with a big third period in a 6-1 win. The hosts seemingly had momentum for the final 20 minutes when Connor Alderson made it 2-1 game in the late stages of the middle stanza. However, the Ice Hawks scored four times in the third to put the game well out of reach. Again, the Sockeyes gave up too many shots with goalie Kurt Russell, facing 44, including 17 in the third.

OBITUARIES

VOLUNTEERS

BATTISON, “Chuck” CHARLES December 1921 - October 2016 Dad was a kind, caring and giving person. Everyone who met him enjoyed being in his company. Always quick with a smile, he rarely spoke an unkind word; believing that if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. His wry sense of humour sometimes made you think just a little, before it made you smile. His inquiring mind was always learning something new. At 92 he bought a computer and spent many hours learning how to use it so he could play new games.

general employment

His early years were spent in the family home on Battison Street, named in honour of his Grandfather Charlie, a Vancouver pioneer. He was crazy about baseball and loved 5/10 pin bowling. During WWII he enlisted in the navy and spent countless hours on a corvette in the North Sea, protecting battleships and cruisers from the German U-boats. An amazing problem solver and whiz with machinery, he worked 37 years with The American Can Company, contributing significantly to the revolutionary design to process beer into cans at the Molson Brewery on Burrard Street. In 1958 he moved into one of the early homes built by the DND lands on #4 Road and became the chief serviceman for the fish canning companies on the Steveston waterfront. When he retired at the age of 57, he was contracted by major west coast salmon fisheries to maintain their canning equipment in between his travels to Hong Kong, Great Britain, the Bahamas and Portugal. In his spare time he reconstructed the canning lines for the restoration of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery where he was a volunteer for many years. The great California adventure captured his exploring spirit and for over 45 years, until the age of 90, he drove to Palm Springs every year for a 3 month vacation. An avid golfer and bridge player he fit perfectly into the Canadian ‘snowbird’ lifestyle and made many friends in the USA. He is greatly missed by his remaining family and everyone who knew him. A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00pm on October 20th at Victory Memorial Park, Surrey.

Requires volunteers to assist with clerical duties in a non-smoking and scent free office near VGH. Must be fluent in speaking English and in reading & writing. Must also have neat penmanship. Needed Monday - Friday 9:00am to 2:30pm

As you share the stories and the memories of how they lived their lives and how very much they meant, may you find comfort...
