New seniors centre and pool could prompt demolition by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter City council could decide within weeks to demolish the former Minoru Boulevard headquarters of the Richmond RCMP. Elected officials heard Monday a report is imminent on the future of Minoru precinct, an area that includes a number of aging civic facilities slated for replacement. The RCMP vacated its building at 6900 Minoru Blvd. last fall. During budget discussions at city hall this week, staff said council previously approved a $2-million plan to renovate the structure and shuttle city staff inside. Slated for the renovated digs were human resources staff (now in a city-owned building at 6931 Granville Ave.) project development staff (now in a leased building at 5440 Hollybridge Way) and parks planners based at the works yard. But, despite city council Monday earmarking the final renovation payment in the 2012 budget, the work has been put on hold and the building is still vacant. “The plan would have gone ahead had it not been for revisiting the priority of the seniors centre,” said

Andrew Nazareth, general manager of finance. Last June seniors packed city council chambers to push elected officials to move on expanding Minoru Place Activity Centre, a seniors activity centre described by users as “bursting at the seams.” Chief administrative officer George Duncan said the options for replacing the seniors centre and neighbouring aquatic centre could prompt the demolition of the RCMP building, and completing renovations now would make no sense. Coun. Derek Dang said seeing the item in the 2012 capital plan came as a surprise. “I don’t remember discussing this,” he told staff. “I didn’t know we were going to spend ($1.1 million this year) on a building that could potentially go down.” Nazareth said the project did come to council, “a long time ago,” but none of the cash earmarked for renovation will be spent without council’s approval. The aging aquatic centre is scheduled to be replaced by 2014, and could be incorporated in the seniors centre design. The seniors centre is slated for replacement in 2017.

Burnaby crooner Michael Buble won’t be participating in this weekend’s celebrity ball hockey game after all. Buble was one of the big names announced for the Richmond Celebrates Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada event scheduled for Saturday. He was slated to play in a pick-up street hockey game with celebrities including Vancouver Canucks legend Trevor Linden. “Unfortunately, I am unable to attend Hockey Day in Canada next Saturday...A personal obligation came up that I had forgotten about and I have to go out of the country. I’m truly sorry that I can’t attend. I was very much looking forward to it, as my time playing ballhockey competitively brings back fond memories. I wish all the players luck and I hope the event is a great success for everyone,” Buble wrote in a statement. Doors open for the free Richmond Olympic Oval event at 10:30 a.m., with the celebration continuing until 10 p.m. The primary focus from 7 p.m. onwards will be on the Vancouver Canucks’ game in Calgary against the Flames. Fans will be able to watch the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast on CBC on the big screen, which will be tuned into the broadcasts throughout the day featuring Canada’s other five NHL teams in action. The Richmond SockeyesNorth Delta Devils junior B hockey game has been moved to the oval to coincide with Hockey Day in Canada celebrations.

Taxes set to climb 2.98% this year Budget provides ‘estimate’ of wage increases, as workers without contract by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Martin van den Hemel photo Branscombe House, at Steveston and Railway, was built in 1905, but currently sits in disrepair.

Heritage house on borrowed time Councillor calls for action in saving historic Branscombe House by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A veteran councillor said Monday if cash isn’t poured into restoring vacant, historic structures, the city should begin to “write these buildings off.” During budget discussions this week, Coun. Harold Steves noted restoration of the Branscombe House, at 4900 Steveston Hwy. (at Railway Avenue), isn’t included in the 2012 capital plan. “It’s empty, it’s boarded up, and if we leave it another year that building ain’t gonna be there much longer,” said Steves. A $180,000 preservation project of the 1905 city-owned house was considered by staff, but ultimately not

recommended in the 2012 budget. The cost—Phase 1 of restoration— included a new roof, foundation, electrical work and asbestos removal, according to Jane Fernyhough, director of arts, culture and heritage services. Preservation work is “becoming urgent,” she noted. Steves drew a parallel between the house and the deteriorating Phoenix Net Loft in Steveston, which the city is spending $250,000 on this year for emergency repairs and a study to determine future use. “The reason it needs all that expense is because of our neglect,” said Steves. “It’s sat empty for 10 years.” Steves added the longer a building is left to sit, the higher the cost of restoration. According to the city’s heritage inventory, the 107-year-old Branscombe House is one of the earliest homes built in Steveston. The document, completed in 2000, noted the house was in “fair condition” at the time. David and Sarah Branscombe once owned the house and operated a general store on Moncton Street. A

Mayor Malcolm Brodie suggested the Branscombe project could be considered as part of 2011 budget surplus spending, which will be determined mid-year.

Property taxes are expected to climb $54 for the average Richmond homeowner this year after civic politicians endorsed the city’s 2012 budget Monday. A 2.98 per cent tax increase is promised in the operating budget, which Mayor Malcolm Brodie called “prudent.” “We are adding one level of service so we can give out more money to community groups through the grants program. That’s the only additional level that’s in it,” he said. “I think that deserves some positive attention.” Council has added $190,784 to the annual budget to boost community grants. One-third of the additional tax would be deposited into an account earmarked for infrastructure replacement, with the rest of the increase largely going to salary increases, according to a staff report. The city is budgeting $2.6 million for new salary, but unionized city workers have yet to land on a contract for 2012. The collective agreements for CUPE locals 718 (inside workers) and 394 (outside workers) expired Dec. 31, 2011. Robert Gilchrist, president of Local 718, said he anticipates bargaining will begin next week. “We’re keeping a very close eye as to what’s been coming down around the province. We’re watching what those settlements are,” said Gilchrist. Following the last round of bargaining, the city and its unionized workers agreed to a five-year deal worth 17.5 per cent in wage increases. City spokesperson Ted Townsend said at this point all the city can do is estimate the contract costs for the 2012 budget. Coun. Ken Johnston called the tax increase “extremely reasonable, extremely fair.” He said while most people wish for no increase, that

proved a “tremendous mistake” when council opted for zero per cent over a decade ago. Launching a preemptive strike against critics, the mayor characterized the tax increase as 1.98 per cent, with an additional one per cent going into savings. “(Critics) inevitably ignore additions to your reserves—putting money away for a rainy day,” said Brodie. On Monday city council also endorsed a $72.6-million capital budget—the lowest spending in eight years. New parks are among the items on the plan, including a $1-million play-and-picnicking area at Terra Nova Rural Park. Designed with an agriculture and heritage theme, the project is expected to be complete by year’s end. An $850,000 park is also planned along the Middle Arm dyke between No. 2 Road Bridge and the oval, and Garden City Park stands to get a $500,000 boost in 2012. Park improvements are also expected to come to West Cambie, as $650,000 is being set aside for a greenway and neighbourhood park in the redeveloping Alexandra neighbourhood. Road projects—including widening portions of Nelson Road, Westminster Highway and No. 6 Road—and upgrades to water mains and pump stations also weigh heavily in 2012 spending. The budget also sets cash aside for smaller projects, such as $133,000 for the first year of a five-year program to reinforce access covers in light standards, with an aim to cut down on wire theft. As for city debt, Andrew Nazareth, the city’s general manager of finance, said outstanding bills include the No. 2 Road Bridge and the Terra Nova lands purchase. The bridge will be paid off next year; Terra Nova lands in 2014, Nazareth said. City council is expected to ratify the budgets Feb. 13. The tax hike follows a previouslyapproved increase in utility rates— raising water, sewer, garbage and recycling fees by up to $79 for homeowners. As required by the Community Charter, the city must finalize its budgets by May 15.

Port can expect legal fight over land use, councillor says Harold Steves says port officials have ignored ALR by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter An 81-hectare farm in East Richmond could be among the first battlegrounds in determining the power of Port Metro Vancouver, a Richmond councillor says. The port owns the 200-acre property known as the Gilmore farm, and Coun. Harold Steves expects a fight if the port moves to expand its industrial operations there. “We’re not entirely convinced that the port is exempt (from the Agricultural Land Reserve.) It’s an arms-length Crown corporation,” he said.

Steves and port CEO Robin Silvester faced off on CBC Radio last week over industrialization of farmland—one week after a heated discussion on the same topic. On Jan. 26, Silvester told politicians at a Metro Vancouver board meeting in Chilliwack that more ALR land should be sacrificed to make way for port expansion. The meeting was the first time politicians had a chance to quiz Silvester directly since the port unveiled its long-range vision. Steves characterized Silvester’s comments as a “declaration of war on farmland,” and said Thursday if the port moves to develop the Gilmore farm, it can expect a legal challenge. The intent of the 40-year-old ALR was to stop port expansion on farmland, he said.

Silvester said his first priority “is to “That should have sent a message to the port that they should stay in get the most out of the facilities that Vancouver,” said Steves, one of the we have without requiring any more ALR’s founders. “They’ve just ignored land.” He said the port is considering the Agricultural Land Reserve and took many expansion options, and cited its the opportunity of using Indian land conversion of a former garbage dump claims as a way to get a foothold onto near the Gilmore farm as an example the Tsawwassen mainland, and they of past success. just haven’t stopped.” “The port has successfully developed HAROLD Silvester said Thursday overruling the that now into productive industrial land.

by Bhreandáin Clugston Editor The family that eats together, stays together. So hopes Touchstone Family Association, which on Thursday launched its second annual Eating Together Campaign. According to Touchstone Family Association, research has shown that families who regularly eat together stay together and have fewer problems. “If we have healthy families, we have healthy communites,” Touchstone’s executive director Michael McCoy said at Thursday’s launch, held at AutoWest BMW in Richmond. With this in mind, the association launched the Eating Together Campaign last year, which raised awareness of the benefits of families eating together. The campaign was a success and returns this year from Feb. 19 to 26. Activities includes community meals at various Richmond community centres and cooking classes conducted by restaurant chefs, among other events. The Eating Together Campaign will help raise funds for Touchstone’s Front Porch Project, which provides families in need with counselling services. “There’s very few acceptable barrier-free services for families,” McCoy said about Touchstone’s decision to start the Front Porch Project. “We believe it is much easier and much better and much healthier to keep a family together than to try and put a family back together again.” Among this year’s Eating Together events are: •Touchstone will be offering four cooking classes from local chefs at the Garratt Wellness Centre. The fee is $15, with proceeds going to the Front Porch

capital budget that’s one of the cheapest in years. An operating budget with a property tax increase that’s among the lowest in recent years. And a nose turned up at heritage. That’s what the public is getting from city hall this year, now that city council has all but approved the way your tax dollars will be spent in 2012. Passed up again this year was restoration of the Branscombe House, a 107-year-old heritage house at Steveston Highway and Railway Avenue. It’s one of Steveston’s earliest homes, but it’s been left to rot for years. As lifelong Steveston resident Bob Ransford told The Review in October, “It’s one of the very few remaining structures that have heritage value in Richmond.” Unless surplus cash can be found, boards over windows will continue to be the dilapidated home’s most noticeable feature. The budget also passes up any new investment at Britannia Heritage Shipyards, but does offer $250,000 for emergency repairs at the Phoenix Net Loft—a building that appears as though it could fall into the river at any time. As Coun. Harold Steves noted this week, the longer these heritage structures are left to

sit—with no maintenance—the more expensive they become to restore. And so much of Richmond’s heritage has fallen to the wrecking ball because it was, quite simply, too expensive to restore. No doubt keeping taxes low should be a priority for this city

council. But perhaps a re-examination of how existing funds are prioritized is needed—especially at a time of vast change in Richmond, which is quickly losing its heritage. While the city often points the spotlight on its future-friendly projects, such as the Richmond Olympic Oval, the Canada Line,

and Downtown Richmond development, what’s the point in forging a future without first showing respect for the past. In order to know where you’re going, you need to know where you came from, and where many of us came from is slowly disappearing into obscurity.

hen I was young, I was active in a number of groups. I volunteered in the community, was a Girl Guide and Pathfinder, and participated in debating club.

I had a pretty wide circle of friends in each who helped me navigate the troubled waters of the teenage years. Not all young people are so lucky to be able to connect with a group. Clyde Hertzman, a researcher at the University of B.C. in human early learning, states

that a major contributor to the success of a child is having at least five adults in their lives that care for them. With this in mind, I climbed the stairs of the Steveston Community Centre on Thursday afternoon and took a peep into the kitchen on the top floor. What a hive of activity! About a dozen youth and three adults where helping to prepare a meal that they would all sit down and share. Normally, a menu of chicken fingers and fries would not make my heart flutter, but what I saw had me asking for recipes! Linda Robertson, the facilitator for the Stir It Up (or SIP) Youth Kitchen, was slicing chicken breast. A group of girls were dipping the breasts in a breadcrumb mixture and laying them onto oven sheets. Nothing was being fried. Another group, under the supervision of youth worker Alvin Li, was chopping potatoes into fries and coating them olive oil.

Two girls were busy making the dressing for Caesar salad from scratch while others were pouring bran muffin batter into muffin cups. Everyone was busy but the air was filled with jokes and conviviality. As the chicken, fries and muffins went into the oven, I had a chance to ask some of the kids what they thought of the program, which allows teens to learn cooking skills while connecting to both youth workers and to each other. “I purposely eat a light lunch because I know the food is going to be so good on Thursdays,” replied one teen. Some mentioned how they had been able to make the recipes at home. I could see the look of pride in their faces as they relayed how much their families enjoyed the meals too. The SIP Youth Kitchen, now in its second year, has connected with over two dozen youth. The program runs during the school year, every Thursday after

school. “It’s had a major impact on my life”, says Alissa, age 14. “I learned new things and made new friends”. The Richmond Food Security Society is helping to fundraise for the SIP Youth Kitchen. Already, Steveston Rotary and the Gilmore Park Dream Auction have provided substantial donations. The program only costs $5,000 for the year and we’ve already raised over half of

the funds. Any interested groups or individuals who would like to donate can contact the Society at 604-244-7377. Food has the power to connect and these youth are benefiting immensely from cooking and eating together. Arzeena Hamir is coordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society.

letters Planes need fuel to fly Editor: Last month, Vancouver Airport Authority announced a $1.8 billion capital investment program designed to help keep YVR competitive and ensure it can build upon its reputation as the gateway of choice for travelers and airlines. This is an important investment, because YVR is a significant economic engine for B.C. The airport employs more than 23,000 people, who earn approximately $1 billion in wages annually. YVR generates $1.9 billion in GDP. YVR is also a key gateway for airports across B.C. Perhaps the biggest single beneficiary of YVR’s economic impact

is Richmond. In 2009, for example, YVR’s operations contributed approximately $27 million to the city. YVR is the largest employer in the city. Given the benefits British Columbians enjoy from YVR, you might expect that projects designed to contribute to the airport’s growth would be supported by those who benefit, particularly in places like Richmond. However, that’s not the case with the proposed new jet fuel delivery system. The current pipeline from Burrard Inlet to YVR cannot meet the airport’s needs now and must be supplemented with about 1,000 tanker trucks each month from the Cherry Point refinery in Washington. Without a new system, tanker truck traffic on our roads will continue

to grow each year. To address the issue, VAFFC reviewed 14 potential delivery options, evaluating them on the various environmental, economic and regulatory impacts associated with their construction and operation. The proposal—a marine terminal and fuel receiving facility on existing industrial sites on the South Arm of the Fraser River connected to YVR by a new 15-kilometre-long underground pipeline—best satisfied the evaluation criteria. VAFFC voluntarily opted into a co-ordinated provincial/federal environmental assessment with the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. This review process will provide a thorough study of the project's impacts and benefits, and identify appropriate safeguards.

If the project can’t meet these high standards, it will not proceed. The fact is planes need fuel to fly. If the fuel supply system can’t meet the needs of the airlines, they—and the resultant economic benefits—will go elsewhere. The goal of VAFFC’s proposed project is to meet YVR’s longterm growth in a safe, sustainable way, and provide access to multiple sources of jet fuel. I urge those who are opposed to the project to allow the environmental review process to take its course instead of automatically rejecting it outright. John Winter B.C. Chamber of Commerce

They do it all on a sparse set whose four chairs see more synchronized flipping and dipping than an Olympic swimming pool.

A documentary about the industry that surrounds breast cancer and the rise of corporate involvement in charitable fundraising will screen at Richmond City Hall on Friday. Léa Pool’s Pink Ribbons, Inc., based on a book from Samantha King, also explores how the corporate co-option of breast cancer has impacted research on the disease. The screening, announced this week, is part of the DOXA Documentary Film Festival Motion Pictures Film Series. Pool’s film depicts the multi-billion dollar business of breast cancer and how it has reaped financial rewards for corporations, ranging from the National Football League to Yoplait. One in eight women are now diagnosed with

breast cancer, a rise from one in 22 since 1940, according to Pool’s film. Pool isn’t calling for a stop to campaigns around breast cancer, but is suggesting more questions be asked about the disease, such as environmental causes. Pink Ribbons, Inc. also demonstrates how breast cancer is used as a public relations tool to deflect criticism from companies whose products have come under fire. The film posits that despite massive fundraising events such as turning Niagara Falls or the Skyline of New York pink, little has been done to stem the mounting death toll caused by the disease. A panel discussion will follow the screening, with experts addressing issues examined in the film. The screening takes place Friday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. in council chambers. Tickets, $10, at doxafestival. ca or 604-646-3200.

Local real estate sales picked up in January compared to December, with the median selling price for houses and townhomes recording increases, according to the latest figures from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. The median selling price of a detached local house was $978,888 last month, up 1.4 per cent, while 89 homes changed hands, a 43.5 per cent increase compared to December’s total of 62. Townhouse sales also grew, with 52 sold last month,

compared to 41 a month earlier. The median selling price was also up marginally by 1.9 per cent. Condo selling prices dipped 4.7 per cent, with 72 sales recorded in January compared to 75 in December. While last month was better than December for real estate sales in Richmond, it was a mere shadow of the blistering hot market a year ago, when 162 homes sold in January 2011, 82 per cent more than last month, with a median selling price of $1.02 million. Regionally, it was more of a buyer’s market in Metro Vancouver, leading to more stability and less fluctuation compared to the start of last year. “We’re seeing trends emerge in our market that favour buyers, such as increased selection and more stability in pricing compared to this time last year,” said board chair Rosario Setticasi. The benchmark price for all residential properties in the Lower Mainland is $593,300, up five per cent compared to a year ago.

captivate hockey fans, young and old, at Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada celebrations Saturday at the Richmond Olympic Oval. “We have different sized exhibits—four to six a month depending on the time of year—that travel, but this is the biggest,” says Izak Westgate, manager of outreach exhibits and assistant curator at the D.K. (Doc) Seaman Hockey Resource Centre, a division of the Hockey Hall of Fame, in Toronto. Westgate says the artifacts change depending on where an exhibit is displayed, and there’s often a theme relating to a particular region. For example, many of the items in this exhibit depict hockey on the West Coast. Part of the Origins of the Game display, featuring items dating back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, is the medallion Millionaires’ star Cyclone Taylor was presented when was appointed to the Order of the British Empire.

A Western Hockey League history exhibit focuses on the Vancouver Giants and features jerseys and gloves worn by future NHLers Milan Lucic and Evander Kane. And a display concentrating on the Vancouver Canucks includes arm padding from former goaltender Cesare Maniago and jerseys worn by Tiger Williams and Pavel Bure. Other highlights of the Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Exhibit include salutes to each of the original six teams (Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs) and features such items as gloves worn by Cam Neely, a stick used by Bobby Hull, jerseys worn by Howie Morenz, Harry Howell and Red Kelly, and skates used by Punch Imlach, the last coach to guide the Leafs to the Stanley Cup in 1967. There’s also a display saluting Team Canada’s Olympic history featuring such items as Roberto Luongo’s jersey from the

2010 Winter Games and Bobby Bauer’s silver medal from the 1960 Games; a history of Team Canada’s women’s program that includes a Hayley Wickenheiser jersey from the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and gloves used by Gillian Apps at the 2004 world championships; and a Team Canada pro classics history featuring Bob Gainey’s jersey from the 1981 Canada Cup and a Mickey Redmond stick from the 1972 Summit Series. A Wayne Gretzky History, a salute to the greatest scorer in NHL history (2,857 points in 1,487 games) is also part of the exhibit and includes a plaque from his rookie season with the Edmonton Oilers in 1979-80, a helmet worn as a Los Angeles King, and jerseys playing for Team Canada during the 1996 World Cup and with the 1998-99 New York Rangers. There’s also displays relating to the history of the Stanley Cup, the NHL all-star game, legendary goalies and today’s NHL stars.

But perhaps the most popular display features NHL trophies: the Hart, presented annually to the league’s most valuable player; Art Ross Trophy, presented to the NHL leading scorer; Presidents’ Trophy, awarded to the NHL regular-season champion; and the Maurice Richard Trophy, awarded to the NHL goal scoring champion. “It varies from person to person, but the trophies are always among the most popular displays because they don’t sit behind glass and you can get up close with them, and have your picture taken with them,” says Westgate, who encourages every hockey fan to get out and see the exhibit while it’s in town. “You definitely want to take advantage of it,” he said. “The biggest reason we have our outreach program is that not everyone can travel to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. This allows us to bring a small part of the hall to you and share a bit of the history.”

RICHMOND OLYMPIC OVAL

Sockeyes to meet Devils in junior hockey matinee League-leading Richmond anxious for win against North Delta nemesis by Don Fennell Sports Editor The Richmond Sockeyes may average five goals a game this season, but their runaway lead atop the Pacific International Junior Hockey League can be better attributed to discipline. That fact isn’t lost on North Delta Devils’ general manager Ed Fowler, whose team has managed to take three of five games from the Sockeyes—and hopes to add a fourth win when the teams face off Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at the

Richmond Olympic Oval as part of Richmond Celebrates Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada. “They play a pretty strict system and we’ve tried to (match that) by keeping them to the outside,” said Fowler. “We’ve also been fortunate in the last couple of games to have gotten the first goal which helps free up our guys a bit. And a goalie can make a world of difference.” Specifically, a hot goalie. Whether their shot selection can be questioned or not, the Sockeyes (32-6-0)

have had trouble scoring against Harry Frederman this season. Though the Sockeyes outshot North Delta 56-17 in their most recent meeting Jan. 12 at Minoru Arenas, Frederman turned aside every shot as North Delta (2212-4) won 2-0. Frederman has stopped 134 shots by Richmond players over the last three games between the teams, all North Delta wins, after Richmond won the first two games in October by identical 4-0 scores. “Harry has been really good against everyone the last couple of months,” said Fowler of the 20-yearold, who sports the thirdbest goals against average among goalies at 2.65. He has the most wins, 19, and shutouts, three. “The scouting report on him was he needed a lot of work and he got kind of thrust into the starting role.” Richmond boasts the league’s top goalie in rookie Kootenay Alder (1.76 goals against average in 17 games, 12 of which he’s won). Fowler said his team is

Fan favourite Linden will lead former Canucks in celebrity game by Don Fennell Sports Editor The Vancouver Canucks will be front and centre during Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada on Saturday. While the current NHL team will face off against the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome at 7 p.m., capping the day-long celebration on CBC television, Canuck alumni including all-time fan-favourite Trevor Linden, original captain Orland Kurtenbach, allstar Dave Babych, sniper Tony Tanti and tough guy Jack McIlhargey will suit up for a celebrity ball hockey game beginning at noon at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The celebrity game is just part of the fun planned locally as Richmond has been selected as a regional host for CBC and Scotiabank’s popular national

celebration of Canada’s game, and has planned a celebration of “all things hockey under one roof.” Admission to Richmond’s Hockey Day in Canada is free, with Mayor Malcolm Brodie issuing an official proclamation and encouraging fans to wear their favourite team jerseys on Feb. 11 to help mark the celebration of our game. “Hockey is Canada’s national passion and a unifying force for all regions of our country, ages, cultures and backgrounds,” states the official proclamation. “The City of Richmond wishes to encourage all Richmond residents, visitors and friends to show their love of hockey and join in celebrating Hockey Day in Canada on February 11 by wearing their favourite hockey jersey, wherever they may be.”

Richmond’s Hockey Day in Canada begins at 10:30 a.m. and winds up at 10 p.m., following the conclusion of the Canucks-Flames game which will be broadcast on a giant TV screen inside the oval. Other event highlights include a chance to “Shoot to Win” a trip for two to Japan, courtesy of Westjet and Japan Air Lines; numerous merchandise giveaways, prize draws and fun contests, the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Legends exhibit featuring memorabilia, interactive experiences and several NHL trophies. Large crowds are expected for the event on Saturday. Those planning to attend are reminded there will be no public parking. Transportation options and a complete event schedule are at richmondoval.ca/ hockeyday.

But that said, they’ve still been able to string together three league wins since. “Our form is still a little off from where I’d like it to be at this point of the season, but I anticipate the lads will be up for the challenge (this week). I expect another close match with an up-tempo pace and neither team giving an inch. And I’m hoping a few of our skilled players will be the difference, with the balance of the squad able to match their grit.” TRANSPORTATION

A table, four chairs, four actors and a tablecloth were all it took to portray an entire community and one woman’s amazing story to 350 people at the opening night of Tempting Providence at Gateway Theatre last Friday. “We’re asking people to use their imaginations,â€? said Deidre Gillard-Rowlings, the actress who played Myra Bennett. “It’s a suggestion ‌ everyone sees a different boat, everyone sees a different sleigh,â€? she said. Tempting Providence tells the story of Myra Bennett, a nurse who came to Newfoundland in 1921. “She’s an exemplary human being,â€? GillardRowlings said. “I read it and I cried.â€? Gillard-Rowlings has traveled around the world playing Myra Bennett for past ten years. The play is perfect for Gateway because community is a major theme. “There is a really strong sense of community here in Richmond,â€? GillardRowlings said. That sense of community was evident at the opening night reception following the show, which was catered by Anna’s Cake House and the Sheraton, Marriott and Hilton Vancouver Airport hotels. The audience gathered together and stayed late to eat, chat and meet the actors.
