Gateway Theatre names new artistic director Jovanni Sy will join theatre in April by Matthew Hoekstra The team from Richmond Animal Protection Society is inviting the public to a ﬁfth anniversary celebration this Sunday, from noon to 3 p.m.
Local animal lovers celebrate ﬁve years of running animal shelter by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It’s been 23 years since Richmond Animal Protection Society began helping lost and abandoned cats, but it’s this weekend’s ﬁfth anniversary that has founder Carol Reichert all smiles. Reichert’s team of volunteers and staff will be gathering Sunday to celebrate the anniversary of RAPS taking over the city’s animal shelter, and instituting a no-kill policy for animals regardless of age, medical needs or adoptability. “I couldn’t help but think back about all that we’ve accomplished and been through. It’s been a great ﬁve years. We’ve met all our goals and beyond.” To thank local citizens for their sup-
port—ﬁnancial, moral and otherwise— Reichert and her team are inviting the public to visit the shelter, at 12071 No. 5 Rd., for an open house celebration from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 5. They’ll be serving up refreshments, and visitors will be greeted by Butter the goat. While the City of Richmond’s contract covers operations and staff salaries, the shelter still does fundraising for the extras needed to assist animals, including rehabilitation and surgeries. On Wednesday, a homeless woman ended up in the hospital, and she’d snuck her dog in with her, Reichert said. Her pet had a bladder full of stones, and a mouth full of rotten teeth. Thanks to fundraising efforts and
grant money, funding was available for the surgery performed on the animal, and by the time its owner is released from hospital, the dog will be all taken care of, Reichert said. Since Feb. 1, 2007, the shelter has handled more than 2,000 dogs, 1,800 cats, 300 rabbits, 50 farm animals, 350 small animals (like birds, reptiles and ferrets) and temporarily housed 1,500 injured wildlife. And the society helped convince Richmond city council to ban the sale of rabbits and puppies from local pet stores. The society took over the animal shelter after council selected it over the SPCA.

Staff Reporter Jovanni Sy is Gateway Theatre’s new artistic director, the Minoru Park theatre announced Wednesday afternoon. Sy will replace the outgoing Simon Johnston mid-April. Sy was unavailable to speak to the Review by press time Thursday, but said in a news release he’s excited to work for “one of Canada’s premiere theatres.” “I’m also very humbled to be following in the giant footsteps of Simon Johnston,” he said. Johnston has been at the helm of Gateway since 2000. Last spring he announced he was leaving to “pursue other artistic projects.” Johnston served as both artistic and executive director of Gateway. Sy’s role will be limited to artistic director, while general manager Suzanne Haines will take on some additional duties following Johnston’s departure. Sy, of Toronto, served as artistic director of Cahoots Theatre Company in the Ontario city for six seasons, a company that dedicates itself to produce new works focusing on Canada’s cultural diversity. He has performed with theatre companies across Canada and has numerous ﬁlm and TV credits to his name. In 2010 Sy served as playwright-in-residence at the Shaw Festival in Ontario, where he worked on a drama set during the Spanish-American War. That same year he wrote and performed his one-man play A Taste of Empire, a play in which audiences were able to taste Sy’s on-stage creation of stuffed milkﬁsh. Gateway Theatre is owned and maintained by the city and operated by the Richmond Gateway Theatre Society. Taxpayers help fund the operation of the theatre, which received $1,031,442 from the city in the last ﬁscal year.

Thrift store theft hurts pets most by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A chunk of concrete the size of a toaster oven was hurled through the side window of the Richmond Animal Protection Society’s thrift store on Granville Avenue over the weekend. But store manager Marie Malinoski and her team of volunteers including Cindy Cox aren’t the ones who will be hard hit by the theft of about $1,000 in donated jewelry and the contents of a donation box. While the side window has now been repaired, and security bars installed overtop, the damage has already been done, Malinoski said. It’s local animals needing medical attention, surgery, rehabilitation, food and other care who will suffer, Malinoski said. She’s been running the store along with her husband Ed on a volunteer basis for the past seven years. Proceeds from the store’s sales are directed to the No. 5 Road animal shelter, where society founder Carol Reichert uses the money to do the extra things that make a huge difference in the lives of local animals and their owners. The thrift store is located at 1408260 Granville Ave., and anybody wishing to make a donation or purchase something is invited to drop by. Particularly popular and saleable are tools of all types, from ham-

up as good as new. Shoppers will walk away with the knowledge that not only did they
get a good deal, but their money went to a good cause too, Malinoski said.
Men and divorce: Life after the break Program aims to mend the hurt caused when a long-term relationship fails by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter It’s second to death of a spouse on lists comprising life’s most stressful events, and is said to be more stressful than a jail sentence. Divorce can be devastating, as can the breakup of a long-term relationship, said Scott Swanson, who is leading a 12-week program for men in need of healing. “It’s just about the worst thing that can happen for many people,” said Swanson, an interim minister at Gilmore Park United Church. “I don’t think any, if very many, people go into a marriage expecting it’s going to fail. People go into a marriage assuming they’re going to be in the percentage that makes it.” The Seafair church has offered the Suddenly Separate program in the past for both women and men, but
41 women nominated for Ethel Tibbits Awards
this session, from Feb. 15 to May 2, is strictly for men. Swanson said men have a tendency not to talk about the hurt they could be feeling. “There’s a saying that what is not transformed is passed on. If we don’t give people opportunities to transform the hurt, the pain, whatever emotions they’re feeling that come at the end of a relationship, they will carry that with them.” According to Statistics Canada, four in 10 marriages end in divorce in Canada with divorces in B.C. occurring at a rate slightly higher than the national average. Divorce is even more common in those who remarry. Suddenly Separate offers 12 sessions covering topics such as anger, single parenting, ﬁnancial recovery, forgiveness and dating. It has a spiritual grounding, but doesn’t require identiﬁcation with a particular religious tradition or denomination, and is appropriate for those with no beliefs at all. Any man who feels pain of a broken relationship, including separated spouses or partners of same-sex couples, is welcome. The program begins Feb. 15 and runs each Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. until May 2 at Gilmore Park, 8060 No. 1 Rd. Register by Feb. 10 at 604-277-5377 or email@example.com. A suggested donation of $30 includes a workbook and refreshments.
Dozens of new names highlight this year’s nominees for the 2012 Ethel Tibbits Women of Distinction Awards. The nomination period closed last Friday. Among the 41 nominations received prior to the Jan. 27 deadline, were a record 16 nominations in the Community category, which is traditionally one of the hardest categories to win. The nominees are: Bev Oldham, Casey Rodusek, Denise Coutts, Val Skelly in Sports; Ying Wang, Tara Nakano, Dawn Ewen, Elsa Rojas-Marquez, Adrienne Moore in Arts; Jennifer Liu, Andrea Banzon, Amii Li, Dayah Johal, Maggie Kong, Maria Mohan, Dini Van Eck, April Houweling, Rowyn Neufeld in Youth; Mary Jensen, Janice Triffon, Tiffany Kirk, Glenda Harrison, Christen Haines, Jody Copple Kim Kendrick in Business; and Debbie Tobin, May Ho, Clara Kim Kum Chow, Ahlay Chin, Brenda Bartley-Smith, Louise Young, Bal Sahota, Janet Betteridge, Mary Nedelak, Arlene Kroeker, Amy Tso, Zoe Lee, Melissa Hance, Linda Reid, Lois Hourston, Beverley Drayton in Community. The 19th Annual Ethels luncheon will be held on Friday, March 9 at the Radisson Vancouver Airport Hotel. The event is named in honour of Ethel Tibbits, who was The Review’s editor and publisher for two decades beginning in 1932. The winners in the ﬁve categories will be announced during the fundraising luncheon—in addition to the Pioneer category—which beneﬁts Nova House, the CHIMO-operated home for women and their children escaping domestic violence. Ethels luncheon tickets are available by calling 604-2473700.

Barnes backs bees at city hall Coun. Linda Barnes is suggesting Richmond City Hall might be a good place for beekeeping. At a recent parks committee meeting, Barnes suggested city property, including city hall, should be explored as potential beekeeping sites. According to staff, beekeeping already takes place at Terra Nova Rural Park, London Farm and Richmond Nature Park. The committee has asked staff to study the issue.

Controversial Mao/Lenin sculpture resurfaces in L.A.
Focus Montessori Preschool/ Day Care F OCUS L EARNING A FTER S CHOOL P ROGRAM
by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A sculpture depicting 20th century communist leaders Lenin and Mao has resurfaced in Los Angeles. Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head is now making a statement at the entrance of Ace Museum, a new contemporary art museum with what used to be a nondescript exterior. The Gao Brothers’ sculpture became a ﬂashpoint in Richmond during its two-year stay at Elmbridge and Alderbridge ways during the Vancouver Biennale public art exhibition. Biennale crews removed the polished work in December 2011 and moved to a warehouse for storage while it waited to be sold. It’s LENIN/MAO not clear if the installation at Ace Museum is temporary or has been purchased. The sculpture features two iconic ﬁgures—a diminutive Miss Mao and monumental Vladimir Lenin—and served as a popular source of debate due to the way each man carved his way into history books. Although the work of artists Zhen and Qiang Gao has been accepted in North America, the brothers have difﬁculty exhibiting it in their own country. In a 2009 interview with The Review, Qiang Gao said despite Chinese society becoming increasingly more open, their art hasn’t been embraced by Chinese ofﬁcials. “We don’t think our work has become more accepted by ofﬁcialdom in recent years. Our studio in Beijing still cannot be open; some work still cannot be shown in China.”

According to police, two vehicles were involved in a head-on collision in the southbound lanes of Minoru. There were two people in each vehicle, and the occupants suffered minor cuts, bruises and abrasions, Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said.

EDITORIAL: Body check ban the right call
oncern about concussions has prompted the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association to ban bodychecking for tweens and teens playing in recreation and house leagues.
While the image of body-bruising play has become synonymous with professional hockey, many say it’s not appropriate for youngsters who could suffer serious head injury from an overly aggressive hit. Are parents being over-cautious with this new rule, which takes effect next season? Absolutely not, concussions are serious and can have life-altering consequences. The new rules are in place to protect children, and will take nothing away from the game. There is some concern that older teens switching to rep leagues may have
The new rules regarding body checking are in place to protect children, and will take nothing away from the game.
trouble adjusting to body checking, but with good coaching
this issue can be managed. Meanwhile, rep
players will still be able to play in a competitive environ-
ment where body checking is allowed but adults supervis-
ing games must be alert to serious head injuries.

ederal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver set off a loud, but poorly informed debate as environmental hearings began into the Enbridge proposal to pipe Alberta oil to the seaport at Kitimat.
Oliver’s open letter blasted foreign-funded environmental groups that “threaten to hijack our regulatory system to achieve their radical ideological agenda.” This letter was seized upon by critics and the
media, and misrepresented as an attack on anyone who opposes the pipeline or further expansion of the Alberta oil sands. Of course all opponents aren’t foreign or radicals. That was made clear when the Enbridge hearings opened in the Haisla village near Kitimat. Haisla members told the throng of out-of-town professional protesters to sit down and shut up. They don’t need self-appointed urbanites to speak for them. The fact of foreign funding is no longer questioned, thanks to research by B.C. blogger Vivian Krause, primarily from U.S. tax returns. Three years after I ﬁrst wrote about her work, it is ﬁnally part of the national conversation. What is the foreignfunded agenda? Oliver put it this way: “No forestry. No mining. No oil. No gas. No more hydroelectric dams.” Here are three notions that have become entrenched in the urban mind in recent years: Clear-cut logging is
by deﬁnition bad. Alaska salmon is wild, and thus superior to farmed. Run-ofriver hydro destroys rivers. All are aggressively promoted by certain environmental groups. And all are false. On forestry, B.C. media have been spoon-fed by U.S.-backed environmental organizers since Clayoquot Sound in the 1980s, when wealthy Americans ﬁrst decided to save B.C. from itself. Greenpeace founderturned-critic Patrick Moore was in Victoria last week to speak to the Truck Loggers’ Association. He pointed out that North American “green building” standards reward locally sourced concrete and steel, but not wood. Why? Because big international organizations like Greenpeace and Sierra Club are so invested in opposition to logging, they end up backing environmentally destructive policies. On oil, the debate has been dumbed down to the point where even movie
stars can participate. Protesting a pipeline from Alberta to the U.S., Hollywood darling Robert Redford recited the usual talking points about the “tar sands scourge.” Alberta oil sands can be seen from space, Redford moaned. So can Venezuela oil sands, a major U.S. source. So can Redford’s vast Utah ranch and ski resort development. Redford parrots the claim that oil sands extraction produces three times the greenhouse gases of conventional oil. This is the big lie of “tar sands” campaigners. Three quarters of emissions from all crude are generated when the reﬁned fuel is burned by things like Redford’s limo, or the airline for which he voiced TV commercials. The Alberta government reports that average emissions from oil sands crude are 107 grams per megajoule, slightly more than U.S. Gulf Coast crude at 104. California heavy crude comes in higher, at 114.
And if carbon is the issue, what about U.S. coal mines that tear the tops off mountains and run the longest trains in world history to feed the country’s 600-plus coal-ﬁred power plants? Where is Redford on that? And hijacking the regulatory process? Look no further than the Dogwood Initiative, an obscure Victoria outﬁt that admits to taking about 40 per cent of its funding from U.S. sources. Its “mob the mic” campaign signed up 1,600 people to speak at the Enbridge pipeline hearings. Among the signatories are “Cave Man” and “Jonathan Seagull.” But wait, aren’t oil, power and aquaculture companies foreign funded? Certainly some are. The difference is, they create jobs. Professional protesters destroy them. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press newspapers. He can be reached at tﬂetcher@blackpress.ca.

‘Richmond Sings’ to the tune of $2,000 We were delighted to have Sally Houston on hand to make an impassioned plea that no child in Richmond should go hungry. “Richmond Sings” is hosted by the Richmond Orchestra and Chorus Association and is organized under the watchful eye of their choral conductor, Brigid Coult. We would like to thank all of the choirs who attended and sang such a wonderful and
varied program and all of the people who came out in support of this event in spite of the threat of snow and the chilly weather. Together we raised over $2,000 for this worthwhile cause and are already planning the sixth annual “Richmond Sings” next year. See you there.

Panther cheer teams tune up for U.S. by Don Fennell Sports Editor They’re quick and agile. And Richmond’s Panther Cheer Athletics teams continue to stand tall heading into the heart of the competitive season. All ﬁve of its teams placed either ﬁrst or second at the Paciﬁc All-star Cheerleading Championships last week in Chilliwack, the largest competition so far. With some ﬁne tuning of their routines, the Panthers expect to be even more successful at the CheerFest Nationals, a two-day event this weekend in Abbotsford. And later this month, the teams will take on the best in America as its youth squads compete in Tacoma and its senior squads in Portland. Coaches Stephanie Kennedy and Dawn Silver founded Panther Cheer Athletics in 2004, and almost instantly the club grew and gained a reputation as one of the best in B.C. But its because they refuse to rest on their laurels,
constantly taking on new challenges, that the Pan-
thers are rapidly becoming a force nationally and inter-
nationally as well. See Page 12

“Before I came to Dr. Nelson, my teeth showed the effects of many years of neglect, and I was not quick to smile. Also, it was difÀcult to chew food and was painful and frustrating and the reason I avoided dentists. After Dr. Nelson and the rest of his team worked on me, my teeth not only look great, but they also feel great. As far as the surgery goes, it was a minor event and the implants are just like my own teeth. If it is decided that implants are the best thing for you, or if something else is required, you will have the procedure explained and they will answer any questions you may have.

Fencers ready for worlds
Nesbitt Health Care
Manufacturers of NICORINSE®
by Don Fennell Sports Editor Four athletes from Richmond’s Dynamo Fencing Club appear headed to the world championships in Moscow in April. While it’s not ofﬁcial just yet, Dynamo coach Igor Gantsevich believes by counting the point totals and combining the results of competitions over the past nine months, that Dylan French, William Wang, Emma von Dadelszen and Shaul Gordon have made the grade after the ﬁnal qualiﬁcation event for the national team at the Cadet and Junior Division levels last weekend in Montreal. French, only 14, won the Cadet men’s foil and was third in Cadet men’s epee. He also stepped up to place third in Junior men’s epee at last weekend’s competition. “The most athletes (Dynamo) has ever sent the worlds at once was two, so this is major step forward for our club,” said Gantsevich. “We now (account for) about one-ﬁfth of the entire national team.”

New homeowners say views and location tops on their list
Finding a home at Tsawwassen Springs For Francis Cheung and his wife, finding a home that allowed them to just close the door behind them when they wanted to travel was extremely important. They found that perfect home at Tsawwassen Springs, by Shato Holdings and Talisman Homes. “It’s so close to the border and the ferries,” Cheung says. “We could just walk to the ferries.” He was immediately impressed by the quality of the workmanship on the homes, and says he looks forward to seeing the community when it is all complete. However, it wasn’t just the construction that he was looking for. “We’re right in the middle of the golf course,” he says. “The view was one of the most important things to us.”
Homeowner Dale Martin was looking to downsize after living in Tsawwassen and Ladner for 20 years, and found the entire community to be exactly what he wanted. “Once I saw the whole concept, I knew it was going to be a real community,” he says, adding that he also liked the idea of living on a golf course. “It’s very well designed,” Martin says. “There is no wasted space.” He was also impressed with the lengths Shato and Talisman were willing to go to ensure he was completely satisfied. “The whole experience was great,” he says. “They really bent over backwards to make sure (everything was okay) ... (Tradespeople) came in and fixed any defects, no questions asked.”
‘Langley is literally right over the hill’
Head into the great outdoors with Latis by Colin Oswin
Get up and get outside with Latis. A condo project from developer Kerkhoff Construction, Latis is located right in the heart of Cloverdale. The project will have just 34 units in total, which Craig Anderson, marketing manager at Pilothouse Real Estate, describes as “a very limited, very intimate selection of homes.” Latis places a big emphasis on providing outdoor space for its residents, with big balconies included with most units. The balconies here range from 90 up to 183 square feet, and one second-floor unit comes with a huge, 412-square-foot terrace. One unit on the top floor has a smaller 51-square-foot balcony, but Latis makes up for this, adding a 553-square-foot rooftop deck. And this suite isn’t alone – five of the top-floor units at Latis include these rooftop decks. Anderson says these types of rooftop spaces are extremely rare in Cloverdale. “We took an existing building structure and had fun with it,” he says. “We already had a roof and a flat building area, so it didn’t add a lot of cost.” The decks on the roof are all fenced off, and they also come equipped with electrical outlets and gas lines for entertainment and barbeques. And at four storeys, Latis will rise above the two- and three-storey buildings that dominate the neighbourhood, providing excellent views in all directions. “You have to invite your friends to come see it,” Anderson says. “Your place is where everyone is going to go in the summer.” In addition to the balconies, decks and ground-floor patios, individual gardens will be available for all units in the grounds surrounding the building, so even if you don’t purchase a unit with a rooftop patio, you’ll still have some outdoor space you can use to grow whatever you want. Latis features one- and two-bedroom suites, with one three-bedroom suite on the ground floor. All come with dens as well. And with 17 different layouts, buyers will find a lot of variety at Latis. In the kitchen, you’ll find a stainlesssteel appliance package, highlighted by a big, 24-inch-wide refrigerator and a classy Venmar designer hood fan over the stove. Under-cabinet puck lighting keeps the space nice and bright, and a two-basin undermount sink adds

carpeting, contemporary baseboards and a window trim package to highlight the big and bright windows. The development includes underground parking for cars as well as a storage space for bicycles. Anderson says he pushed hard for the inclusion of the community bike rack because the amenities in Cloverdale are so close by. You can pedal your way around the neighbourhood on errands and grocery runs or even to school at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. “I’m amazed at how close things are,”
he says. “Langley is literally right over the hill.” A major retail and commercial redevelopment underway at the site of the old Cloverdale Mall means buyers at Latis will arrive early in an up-andcoming area. “Drastic changes are coming to Cloverdale after decades,” Anderson says. “This is an opportunity 18 to 24 months before everyone else jumps in.” Homes at Latis start at $194,900.

to the modern feel of the space. The microwave and dishwasher are housed in two drawers under the counter, providing a cool, space-age touch. Kerkhoff used quartz for the kitchen and bathroom countertops. Since quartz is less porous than granite, Anderson says it makes for a superior countertop surface. “This is a level above granite,” he says. “We tried to stain it with red wine – it didn’t work.” The living rooms feature laminate floors, faux-wood window blinds and 5.5-inch baseboard moulding. In the bedroom, buyers will find broadloom
Latis, by developer Kerkhoff Construction, features a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes spread among four storeys (above). Stunning interior features include quartz countertops and chic laminate ﬂooring (top).

The Youth Level 1 team (ages seven to 11), which also placed ﬁrst in a nine-team division at PAC, has been focused on improving its timing and cleanliness. They’ve also added more stunts to increase their ratio of skills and thus their difﬁculty score. It’s a similar scenario for the Youth Level 2 team of seven- to 11-year-olds which also placed ﬁrst in its seven-team division at PAC. “In such a tight division, the placings are going to be dependent on which teams run clean,” said Kennedy. The Panthers’ Senior Level 3 team, made up of 12- to 18-year-olds is coming off a secondplace ﬁnish at PAC and struggled with illness and injuries prior to the oval competition. But Kennedy said they’ve regrouped and hope a new stunt sequence, and some new tumblers,
will boost both their conﬁdence and scores this weekend. “Their challenge is in increasing their tumbling difﬁculty, a struggle as much of this team is new to cheer and tumbling and these skills are very difﬁcult and take time to learn,” said Kennedy. “And they are up against some very strong teams with high ratios of tumblers, so their goal is to make sure the other areas (stunting, jumping and dancing) of the score sheet are very strong.” Also coming off a second-place ﬁnish at PAC, the Panthers’ Senior Level 3 team of 12- to 19-year-olds struggled to prepare for the Chilliwack event due to one of its members being unable to compete. But even with a few bobbles and tumbling touch downs, the routine’s difﬁculty and the performance of the athletes showed how strong this team is capable of being, Kennedy concluded.
