Regional police force still needed, says councillor B.C. has reached an agreement to extend RCMP services for 20 years by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter B.C. has reached a new 20-year deal for RCMP services, but a local councillor said Monday a regional force is still the better option. “I still believe over the longer term, a regional police force would be more accountable and would give us a greater way of communicating and doing things differently than a national police force,” said Coun. Ken Johnston. At Monday’s city council meeting, civic politicians added pedestrian safety and establishing a downtown community police presence to the KEN Richmond RCMP’s policing plan for JOHNSTON 2012-2013. Johnston said he’s pleased with the city’s relationship with the local branch of its Ottawa-based police force, noting Richmond has one of the lowest crime rates in B.C. But the councillor said his preference still lies with a regional force. “It’s not going to happen tomorrow, it may not happen ever, but longer term that’s the direction we should be going.” B.C. has an agreement in principle with the federal government on a new RCMP contract, which would cover the 150 communities in B.C. served by the force. The contract is believed to still have opt-out clauses, under which any city could form its own municipal force or the province could form its own provincial force. John Cummins, the leader of the B.C. Conservative Party and former MP in Richmond, has promised, if elected, an independent review of RCMP services to determine if they adequately serve the province. Cummins said the RCMP management structure has become “inept and outdated,” and questioned how a federal police force can tackle international terrorism and also provide community policing in dozens of small and large B.C. communities.

Tram barn in the ‘deep rose’ red Councillors still mulling the hue of the future Steveston structure by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Tall ships to join Salmon Fest Imperial Landing to serve as new host for Ships to Shore event by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Sailing ships are expected to join Steveston Salmon Festival’s attractions this year, as the city prepares to mount its Ships to Shore event in time for Canada Day. A mix of vessels are expected to sail into Steveston Harbour and drop anchor at Imperial Landing, where the city’s new floats— first installed at Garry Point Park last year— are now stationed. City council is being asked to approve $115,000 to help stage the event, scheduled

for June 29 to July 1. During the first Ships to Shore event last June, four tall ships arrived at Garry Point Park—Hawaiian Chieftain, Lady Washington, Zodiac and Adventuress—attracting an estimated 40,000 people over four days. City spokesperson Ted Townsend said this year’s event is expected to draw some of those same vessels, along with a mix of other sailing and historical vessels. “We will have a couple of ships that would be considered B or C class tall ships, probably,” he said. “Ships like the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain, they may not be huge, but they certainly fit the bill when people think of tall ships.” Meanwhile, the city is still trying to lure a large tall ship here in the next few years. Negotiations are underway with two historic Japanese tall ships: Nippon Maru, which visited in 2002; and Kaiwo Maru, which visited in 2005.

Low-flow toilet rebates prove popular Overwhelming demand for low-flow toilet rebates has prompted city council to double program spending to $200,000. For the last two years, city hall has offered a $100 rebate for homeowners replacing older 13-litre toilets with low-flow models. City hall has processed an average of 880 rebate applications per year. But so far this year, 460 rebates have already been processed. On Monday Robert Gonzalez, general manager of engineering, told council demand has come from all types of homes—apartments, townhouses and single-family homes. “It’s also proving to be one of the most effective programs in reducing water consumption,” he said. According to a staff report, low-flow toilets can reduce a household’s water use up to 68 per cent, or 75 litres per person per day. —by Matthew Hoekstra

To accommodate the largest ships, the floats would have to be moved back to Garry Point, but for now, the floats—stretching 183 metres—are staying at Imperial Landing. The city is now considering opening them up to non-motorized boat moorage—such as kayaks—and mulling the idea of allowing a commercial kayak company to use the space. Also planned is a six-month trial to allow small pleasure craft to moor on the floats for up to two days—at a cost of $1 per foot for each 24-hour period. “There are limited public opportunities for Richmond residents to access the river safely and for casual boat moorage in Steveston. The proposed program will allow greater access to the water as well as a potential revenue stream from moorage for the city,” said Serena Lusk, manager of parks programs, in a report to city council’s parks committee.

Will it be deep rose or dark burgundy? Perhaps raisin torte. All three are in the running as colours for a new tram barn—a $1.3-million project approved by city council seven months ago, with one decision left on colour. Councillors had quibbled with the shade chosen by Architects Birmingham and Wood, and asked staff to investigate the “appropriateness” of the colour. At a parks committee meeting Tuesday, city staff recommended the 2,800-square-foot barn be adorned with a “deep rose” colour. Staff contend the hue relates to the characteristics of the historic village and riverfront buildings of Steveston. It also fits with the colour of industrial buildings in the early 20th century in the Lower Mainland. Although the other options stay true to the historic colour palette used throughout the height of settlement in Vancouver, they’re “less compatible” for the project, said project coordinator Tara van Voorst Vader, in a report. The city is hiring a general contractor to build the wood-frame barn, which is scheduled to be complete by October. Once finished, the barn will serve as a museum for tram No. 1220—an electricity-powered tram that once transported commuters from Steveston to downtown Vancouver in 45 minutes. The barn will be built near the playground in Steveston Park and allow the tram to roll out on tracks for outdoor display.

A few tickets left for Ethels Tibbits luncheon With a little more than a week before the 19th annual Ethel Tibbits Women of Distinction Awards, there are fewer than three dozen tickets remaining for the fundraiser that benefits local women’s charities. The primary beneficiary of the Friday, March 9 luncheon at the Radisson Vancouver Airport Hotel is Nova House, a shelter for women and their children escaping domestic violence. Some 350 tickets have already been sold. Tickets are $50 each or a table of 10 for $450, and are available by calling 604-247-3700. The Ethel Tibbits Awards are named after the pioneering editor and publisher of The Richmond Review. She earned a strong reputation for her outspoken stance on social issues, including the internment of Canadians of Japanese origin during the Second World War.

Senior dies after hit by car A 75-year-old woman who was crossing No. 1 Road on Feb. 16 during dark and wet conditions, died of her injuries, and became the second pedestrian fatality of 2012 in Richmond. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said police received a call about the collision around 6:30 p.m. on that Thursday evening. The victim was not in the crosswalk, police said, and was crossing No. 1 Road just south of Blundell Road. A southbound vehicle struck the woman, who was propelled into the path of a northbound vehicle, which also struck her. She was taken to Vancouver General Hospital, and died shortly thereafter, Turley said. “At the time of the collision the roadways were wet as it was raining lightly, it was dark and the pedestrian was wearing dark, non-reflective clothing,” she said. Investigators noted there was a marked crosswalk just north of where the collision occurred. Turley reminded pedestrians to dress appropriately during the dark winter conditions, and to exercise caution while crossing the street. She also urged drivers to slow down during slick conditions.

‘Eccentric and engaging’ performer honoured for her work From Page 1 Dragu couldn’t be reached yesterday, but in a video interview posted on the Canada Council website, the artist talks of her goal to involve audiences in her performances. “A lot of people who

might not go to art normally will run into art at the community centre, or some other public place like the mall or wherever and get to see art on the fly when they’re least expecting it,” she said. “There’s nothing quite

like sharing really deep change, a transformation of some kind, with an audience.” Described by the Canada Council as “eccentric and engaging,” Dragu and her many personas—Verb Woman, Lady Justice, Nues-

City Board

tra Senora del Pan— comment on feminism, the environment and social issues. When she’s not performing, Dragu brings her expertise on body and movement to her work as a personal trainer at South Arm Community Centre. She’s also an instructor at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. In 2008 she exhibited at Richmond Art Gallery with Pam Hall. Margina-

lia: Getting Out of the House explored connection, community, feminism and domesticity. Richmond Art Gallery director Lynn Beavis nominated Dragu for the prize. In a statement, Beavis said she’s pleased Dragu’s talent and contributions to performance art have been recognized. “She has gained the respect of her peers and the many non-

artists with whom she works. She really is a national treasure and it is wonderful that she is being honoured in this way.” “This is a tremendous and deserved honour,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “It’s a tribute to an incredible life in art that has been characterized by excellence, diversity and longevity.” Dragu was born in Saskatchewan, and worked

in New York City, Montreal and Toronto before landing in Richmond in 1986. Other winners of the Governor General’s prize: Geoffrey James, photographer; Charles Lewton-Brain, artistgoldsmith; Ron Martin, visual artist; Diana Nemiroff, art gallery director and curator; Jan Peacock, visual artist; Royden Rabinowitch, sculptor; and Jana Sterbak, visual artist.

The nomination could be for an individual or an organization who has enriched Richmond’s heritage resources in any way or contributed to those resources. Some of the ways an individual or organization may earn special recognition are: • by restoring, rehabilitating, maintaining or adaptively re-using a heritage building, its interior, exterior or other characteristic features; • by preserving or maintaining a heritage landscape; • by promoting local heritage; • by furthering the knowledge of Richmond’s heritage by relating our history or interpreting our past; • by advocating for heritage issues or promoting heritage awareness.

Proposed are a series of high-rise and mid-rise buildings that would contain nearly half the 3,250 homes expected in the redeveloping area, near the north end of No. 3 Road. Airport officials, however, say the properties are in an area “incompatible” for new homes, citing Transport Canada land use recommendations on aircraft noise. Anne Murray, vicepresident of community and environmental affairs for the Vancouver Airport Authority, said the area already faces aircraft noise—and flights in and out of Vancouver International Airport are only expected to increase. “We do not support this rezoning application which would significantly increase the number of Richmond residents exposed to high levels of aircraft noise at their home,” she said in a letter submitted at the Feb. 20 hearing. As a condition of city approval, the developers will be required to pay for a future Canada Line station at Capstan Way. Concord is proposing to build a series of high-rises—stretching as high as 15 storeys— to accommodate 1,245 condominiums over 3.3 hectares (eight acres). Of those, 61 would be low-end market rental housing and 20 would be low-end market rental studio units for artists. Pinnacle International is seeking approval for a smaller project—200 units anchored by a 14-storey high-rise—as its first phase of a 1,700home vision.

Changing face of Richmond subject of forum Richmond Art Gallery will host “Developing Richmond” March 3—a forum on the changing face of Lulu Island. Timed with the current gallery exhibition Fantasy Gardens, the forum will feature a panel discussion with four people: Terry Crowe, manager of policy planning for the City of Richmond; Kent Mullinix, director of Kwantlen’s Institute for Sustainable Horticulture; Harold Steves, city councillor; and De Whalen, a farmland advocate and former council candidate. The discussion will focus on how Richmond has changed, what is the Agricultural Land Reserve, the impact of land use changes and the former site of Fantasy Gardens. The event takes place Saturday, March 3 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the gallery, 7700 Minoru Gate. Admission is free. Fantasy Gardens by Stuart McCall and Neil Wedman is an exhibition of drawings and photographs from Fantasy Garden World, an attraction built at No. 5 Road and Steveston Highway by former Social Credit premier Bill Vander Zalm in the mid-1980s.

City grants approved Forty-two community groups will net city grants totalling $625,402, city council decided Monday. Most of the cash— $530,637—will go to 30 health, safety and social service groups, including Richmond Addiction Services, Chimo Crisis Services and Family Services of Greater Vancouver. Another $94,765 will go to 12 groups providing recreation programs and community events, with the largest grant going to the Steveston Community Society, which acts as the trustee of fund serving low-cost summer programs in 14 facilities in Richmond. At Monday’s meeting of city council, Coun. Bill McNulty said for some groups, these grants are a “lifeline” and offer support when senior governments fail to. “Without what we’re giving them, they wouldn’t exist,” he said. “I’m not sure how long we can see the downloading or the lack of support at other levels of government. I think some things have to start changing around.” –by Matthew Hoekstra

Alleged pet killer arrested by police Kendal Goheen facing nine animal crueltyrelated criminal charges by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A convicted cocaine trafficker accused of slaughtering his dog and two cats last October was arrested last week by Richmond Mounties. An arrest warrant was executed Feb. 21 against Kendal Goheen, who is facing three counts each of killing an animal, causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal and causing an animal to be in distressed. Goheen’s ex-wife Latia Del Riviero first spoke with The Richmond Review in October, and revealed that Goheen went on the murder-

ous spree not long after he lost his job at a local cabinet making firm. Del Riviero’s 70-pound boxer Maza, and two cats, Pepper and Liston, all died of brutal injuries during the Oct. 7 attack. Lorie Chortyk, general manager of the B.C. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, described the attack on the animals as “one of the most disturbing cases...encountered in recent memory.” It is truly horrible to think of the terror and pain that these animals suffered,” she said. “We can’t bring the animals back, but we can ensure that we do everything in our power to seek justice for them and to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.” Goheen has been released from custody and made an appearance in Richmond provincial court on Tuesday morning. Del Riviero said Goheen had been battling depression ever since being released from a U.S. prison on the cocaine trafficking conviction, which involved $450,000 cash and 150 kilograms of cocaine.

Some 500 students, teachers and administrators donned pink to end Education Week with bang at Aberdeen Centre.

Students perform anti-bullying flash mob Some 500 students, teachers, retired teachers and administrators from the Richmond School District put an emphatic end to education week with an anti-bullying flash mob at Aberdeen Centre on Sunday morning. Dancing to “Without You” by David Guetta and Usher, the participants donned pink shirts to support the fifth annual Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day today (Feb. 29). A video of the performance—students

practiced for weeks under the guidance of Anita Perel and Jheric Hizon from A-Star Dance Studio—had just over 340 views as on Monday morning, but in the span of a day, that spiked to more than 10,000 views. The video is available at: http:// tinyurl.com/AberdeenFlashMob “Dance is a form of expression and this is our expression of support for pink shirt day and anti-bullying,” said Victor Lau, a Grade 10 student at A.R. MacNeill Secondary.

City Board

City Board Steveston’s No. 1 Road and Moncton Street intersection How the new pedestrian priority “scramble” crosswalk works The City recently upgraded the No. 1 Road and Moncton Street intersection. The features of the new intersection enhance road safety for all users. • Exclusive pedestrian-only crossing phase that stops all vehicle movements and allows pedestrians to cross the intersection, including diagonally (pedestrian scramble) • No vehicle right-turns on red lights In addition, the City upgraded other Steveston Village intersections and reduced the speed limit to 30 km/hour throughout the Village. How to activate the scramble feature of the intersection The intersection has both traditional crosswalk buttons/signs and a new button/sign to activate the scramble feature: • Press the button below the new “Press for Priority Crossing” sign. The diagonal (scramble) crossing will only be activated by pushing the “Priority” button.

for you and generations to come The City of Richmond and Oris Consulting Ltd. invite you to attend the first public consultation meeting to consider the future of the Hamilton community. We are in the early stages of creating a Hamilton Area Plan Update which will consider revisions to: • residential and retail land uses At the meeting, • transportation, parks and open space policies there will be: Tell us your thoughts as we get started. Date: Time: Location:

Tuesday, March 13, 2012 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Hamilton Community Centre 5140 Smith Drive, Richmond

Background

• A brief presentation at 7:15 p.m. outlining the current community status, followed by a drop-in style open house where you can discuss options for Hamilton • An opportunity for you to provide feedback by completing a survey

• The “walk/don’t walk” indicators for pedestrians are located diagonally across from each intersection corner. A timer below these “walk/don’t walk” signs counts down the seconds remaining for the diagonal pedestrian crossing only (watch for a “flashing hand”).

In December 2011, City Council approved a process to update the 1995 Hamilton Area Plan. The Area Plan Update will include revisions that respond to current community development trends and public feedback.

• Other push buttons without the special “Press for Priority Crossing” sign are for activating normal parallel crossings only. Crossing diagonally SHOULD NOT occur in these normal walk phases. The same pedestrian crossing regulations apply as at other intersections.

On March 13, 2012, we will also launch a Hamilton Area Plan Update website which can be accessed through www.richmond.ca, www.orisconsulting.ca or www.placespeak.com. These websites will provide ongoing information on the Hamilton Area Plan Update process.

EDITORIAL: Teachers’ strike will get worse The ongoing teachers’ strike, which thus far has mainly been marked by a lack of report cards and minimal co-operation between principals and teachers in schools, is about to get much nastier. The B.C. Teachers Federation will likely go out onto the picket lines. The BC Labour Relations Board has ruled that BCTF member may walk off the job for a maximum of three instructional days, with two day’s notice. Subsequently, teachers may withdraw all duties for one out of five days per week. The escalated strike action will be a result of the provincial government’s plan to legislate a settlement to the dispute. While the two sides have been bargaining for about eight months, there has been little movement on both sides and they remain far apart. The BCTF wants a 15 per cent wage increase over three years, which is obviously far too rich for taxpayers at the present. It is particularly out of step with other settlements between the province and other government workers. At the same time, the province has offered little in the way of incentives for the BCTF to modify its proposals. Its standard response has been that it wants a ”net zero” contract, and it’s up to the union to come up with potential cost saving ideas that would fund a wage increase.

Black Press file photo BCTF president Susan Lambert and Education Minister George Abbott started off on friendly terms at the union’s convention, March 2011.

Unfortunately, negotiated settlements between the BCTF and the provincial bargaining agency are very rare. There’s only been one, and that was due to the fact that the province was willing to offer teachers a good wage boost at a time when the economy was in much better shape.

The NDP, which brought in provincial bargaining in the 1990s, was no more successful in reaching negotiated settlements than the Liberals have been. The BCTF sees itself as above the fray of ordinary bargaining, and the structure of the union itself makes it difficult to reach negotiated agreements.

Teachers do have some issues which need resolution. The province has dumped a lot of extra work on them, through changes to its reporting systems, and through an added number of children with special needs in many classrooms. Many teachers will soon be retiring, and the prov-

ince has shown little interest in offering incentives to keep good teachers on the job longer, to offer their skills in the classroom and act as mentors to young teachers who are just starting out. Unfortunately, the ones who will suffer through any escalated strike are students.

Most of us are in denial about where our meat comes from

Shades of Green Arzeena Hamir

L

ike many of you, I was shocked by the headlines in the newspapers regarding the Stanley Park goats.

But, whereas the majority of comments referred to the “horror of the slaughter,” my personal reaction was “What is the big deal?” I should preface this by

saying that I have been a vegetarian for almost 30 years and I continue to choose not to eat meat because I, personally, couldn’t slaughter animals to eat them. I understand that meat does not just magically appear on Styrofoam trays in the supermarket. Someone must butcher it first. At the same time, I do not expect everyone else to be a vegetarian. In fact, I depend on carnivores in order to eat. I grow all my veggies organically, with manure, so I need farmers to keep animals so that I can continue to have a supply of natural fertilizer. The majority of organic produce sold in the market is grown this way too. So I was a bit surprised at the reaction to the auctioning-off of these

goats. Yes, the farmer who initially promised to take the goats in and let them live out their lives broke a contract and for that he should be punished. But I found the reaction to this information totally over the top “What am I going to tell my children?”, teary-eyed parents asked. I turned to my six-year-old and explained the situation. “Don’t they understand the circle of life?” was her reply. I think she hit it on the head. The majority of us are in denial that our meat comes from living creatures and we try to “protect” our kids from the truth. Yes, the animals from the Stanley Park zoo were special. They had names. People felt con-

nected to them. But in a time where there are thousands of people living in poverty, why did our society expect that these animals should be fed, watered, and housed and never eaten? I’m not singling out the Vancouver Parks Board. We had the same reaction in Richmond when our rabbit population exploded and they needed to be culled. Victoria spent who knows how many thousands of dollars re-locating their rabbits to Texas. Why couldn’t they have been butchered and donated to food bank clients? Why not? Because we are hypocrites. We like our meat to be anonymous. Some animals are cute and have special places in our houses and

zoos where we faun over them, spend thousands on feeding them and even buy clothes and toys for them. Others are stuffed into barns and pens where they can’t move, are pumped full of antibiotics, don’t see sunlight, and we don’t complain. But maybe science can solve this dilemma. Earlier this month, Dutch researchers were able to grow muscle tissue in a lab. By the end of the year, they figure they’ll be able to make the worlds first lab-grown hamburger. Truly anonymous meat. Pass the ketchup. Arzeena Hamir is co-ordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society. Reach her at arzeena hamir@shaw.ca.

letters A master of spin Editor: In a recent meeting of BC Superintendents Education Minister George Abbott apparently stated that he doesn’t like to hear educators complain that a class is impossible to teach if it includes more than three students with designated special needs. He went on to state, “I find that very discouraging.” Apparently superintendents applauded! Education Minister Abbott and his government have spent more than 10 years creating classroom situations which are increasingly difficult to manage by removing over $200 million per year from education funding that was ear-marked for supporting students with learning disabilities, special needs and ESL needs. To then describe his dissatisfaction and discouragement over hearing educators express frustration with these increasingly untenable working and learning conditions seems the ultimate in hypocrisy. If superintendents applauded this sentiment then it seems obvious to me that they have spent too much time in their very well-paid ivory towers and not enough time in their schools. Mr. Abbott is a master of spin but he is not a leader in the field of education. Gilbert Smith Richmond Teacher

Lessons from the Cherry Point refinery fire Editor: The Cherry Point refinery fire proved to the world how critical it is to have professionals in the business of working with jet fuel. Accidents are going to happen and whether this one turns out to be human error, mechanical or something else the end result of the incident was it was contained swiftly and professionally. The Cherry Point refinery has a great safety record and they even have their own team of firefighters who where first on the scene. Within one hour the fire had been diminished significantly and within 90 minutes no flames where visible. In contrast the non-profit

Grant money will go across Richmond Editor: We wish to clarify your report of the city grant allocation (“Richmond charities, non-profits get city cash”) to the Steveston Community Society. Each year, on behalf of City of Richmond partners in Parks and Recreation, we request grant funding to support summer programs in 14 facilities across the city, including eight community centres, seniors centre, art centre, nature park, arenas, Britannia Shipyard, and diversity services. Although it may appear on paper that we are the largest beneficiary of a recreation grant, we are simply the applicant on behalf of our peer facilities, and act as trustee of the funding. The city grant is distributed city-wide for many purposes including enabling low cost/no cost services, hiring support staff to enable children who require extra support, “free play” programs equipment, outreach programs and similar support services to the summer programs. Participating facilities have equal access to these resources, therefore the beneficiary of the largest recreation grant is “everyone”. Beth Ovenden, Vice-President, Programs, Steveston Community Society

organization, Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation has no experience and no accountability to deal with potential disasters like this one. The B.C. EAO and the federal government need to understand that if there was even a minor incident it could catapult into a major environmental disaster in a very short period of time. Lives could be lost, and the cleanup could take a very, very long time. The process has been so flawed that the public has not been aware of. The time has come for smart, responsible choices not ill-conceived choices based only on profits. Carol Day Richmond

Sign up for Seedy Saturday The Richmond Food Security Society presents its fourth annual Seedy Saturday at Terra Nova Rural Park on Saturday, March 3. The event is the unofďŹ cial kickoff to the gardening year where gardeners purchase or trade for new seed varieties. This year, the event is so controversial that Facebook erased the event page. “At ďŹ rst we thought they were objecting to the use of the word ‘Seedy,’â€? said Erika Simms, the co-ordinator of this year’s event. “Then we ďŹ nally realized that one of the activities, making seed “bombsâ€? with kids, had triggered some computer algorithm to pull the site.â€? However, the activity is in no way underhanded and just involves rolling clay and wildower seed into balls. Kids love it, Simms said. Apart from the Facebook controversy, this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than previous ones. Harold Steves and Tatiana’s Tomatoes will have a wonderful selection of heirloom seeds to try. Derry Walsh will be outside with a number of fruit trees and Edibles Only will be bringing a variety of nut trees and persimmons from their nursery in Squamish Other vendors will be selling shiitake and oyster mushroom

A new seed library will be launched on Seedy Saturday. Erika Simms poses with some of the seeds.

kits, honey and mason bee products, and Kelpman from North Vancouver will have a variety of kelp-based products on sale. Local activist De Whalen will be selling composted horse manure and red wiggler worms for anyone wanting to start a worm bin. The Richmond Food Security Society will be unveiling its mobile seed library. Like a regular library, residents will be able to “check out� seeds with the hopes that after growing the seed for a season, some of the seeds will be saved and returned

to the library as a “deposit.� Local organizations can also ask to borrow the library for any events where people might be interested in trying out gardening. Seedy Saturday Richmond is part of a nation-wide movement to encourage communities to save seeds that are adapted to the local climate.

CK Global Solutions

Hey, we asked‌

trusted advisors for business transition

various businesses in North America and Africa and senior positions in the large corporate world. We have owned businesses and understand the challenges of running them.

Where did you grow up?

FRANK KUSMER PRINCIPAL, Principal CK Global Solutions

Why this business? Exit planning is overlooked by business owners far too often. Preparing a business for sale to maximize value takes specialized knowledge. We are passionate about our business because our families ran their own companies and we believe business owners deserve to capture the best rewards from all their time and effort.

How do you try to stand out from the competition? Everything we do is based on helping people succeed in business transition, and that includes more than just selling businesses. Our key difference is that we offer a full suite of consulting services tailored to each of our clients in value generation, MBO’s and succession planning. We have an international business network of buyers and resources to quickly locate appropriate opportunities.

What did you do before starting this business?

We have quite varied backgrounds. Graduate and undergraduate university degrees in business and experience in running

Frank grew up in Illinois in a family with a house contracting business. Chris grew up in Africa and has lived in France and had various businesses including liquor/wine distribution, environmental protection services and banking equipment. Bev grew up

In connection to the exhibition Fantasy Gardens, the Richmond Art Gallery presents:

in B.C. and has owned her own businesses in graphic design and rehabilitation therapy. Together we have many local and international connections.

Where do you plan to go on your next vacation? We love world cup soccer, so Brazil is on our list for 2014. But prior to that, we try escape occasionally where the sun shines and where there is no internet connection or cell phone services!

FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS 7

OBITUARIES WALLACE Robina (Ruby)

MINNS, Dennis Michael June 16, 1953-Feb. 25, 2012 We are deeply saddened by the passing of Dennis, who surrounded by his loving family, lost his courageous battle with cancer at the age of 58. He recently retired after a lifelong career at the City of Richmond. Dennis will always be remembered as a family man with a big heart, outgoing personality and bright blue-eyes. He is predeceased by his father Harry and leaves behind his loving wife of 27 years Gayle, daughters Meghan (Kyle) and Carly (Rob), mother Peggy and brother Terry. He will be greatly missed by his family and his many friends. In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Agency, Richmond Hospital Foundation or charity of your choice would be appreciated. A service will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 1:00pm at the Richmond Funeral Home.

Born March 2, 1924 in Vancouver, B.C. Died peacefully in Richmond, B.C. on February 24, 2012 after a long struggle with Parkinson’s Disease. Predeceased by her parents William Duncan Wallace and Robina Robertson Wallace, and her two brothers William Duncan Wallace and Andrew Wallace. Ruby never married but is survived by many nieces and nephews and their children. Ruby’s working life was spent in the employ of her father’s construction business, W.D. Wallace and Sons. Her passion was for golf, bridge and going to the Opera with her many friends. Ruby was a kind, honest woman with a great sense of humour, who lived her life her own way. Happiness knew her well and she will be remembered by all with only kind thoughts. Cremation without memorial service was at Ruby’s request.

On return to Canada he attended the University of British Columbia where he attained his BA in the first graduating class for Physical Education and later his Masters in Social Work. He worked with the United Way as a Planning Consultant retiring after twenty five years. He chaired the Board of the

75

McCreary Centre Society and also chaired the Society for Children and Youth. As a member of the Unitarian Church Basil chaired the Board of Trustees for 3 years and the Koerner Fund Committee for 16 years. In June of 2010 he was awarded the Unsung Hero Award.He was a member of VANA (Veterans Against Nuclear Arms) and marched with his colleagues in the Remembrance Day Parade carrying the banner “Let Peace Be Their Memorial”. For many years Basil was a member of the Jericho Tennis Club and played there until well into his 80’s. He was an annual participant in the South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Tournament and the Denny Cardinal matches. He loved the game. He had many happy times in Hawaii with family and friends. Basil was a kind, wise and generous man. Because of the debilitating effects of Alzheimer’s, the George Derby Center for veterans was his home for the past eight months. He was cared for with love and respect by the staff. A Celebration of Basil’s life will take place on Friday March 9th/2012 at 12:00pm at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver at 49th and Oak with reception to follow at Langara Golf Club 6706 Alberta Street, Vancouver. In lieu of flowers donations to George Derby Center would be appreciated. The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand. The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops, yet it echoes on in sweet refrains... For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.

“VICTORIA” NEEDS A GOOD HOME WITH YOU!

“VICTORIA,” ID #252172, SF, DSH CROSS, 1 YR 2 MTHS Victoria is a quiet, petite and shy little girl who was picked up as a stray in Langley and is now awaiting her forever home! She’s a little timid at first, but once she warms up she is a real love-bug and loves to play. Victoria would best be suited for a home with no young children, as she may be frightened by loud noises or lots of activity, and is looking for her second chance at happiness in a quiet and loving home.

side of that is that they have license to do what they want and not be judged for it. Or even noticed, for that matter, for what might otherwise be considered bad behavior. Some women boast of their “I just don’t care” approach. Whatever their individual focus, there’s a common thread that runs throughout the essays, and it’s this: no matter what life throws their way, they’re up for the challenge and face it with humor, dignity and strength. As women ripening into their fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth decades, some embrace the full spectrum life experiences such as divorce, illness and loss, and come to realize that “awful situations can yield up great possibilities,” while others find it hard to wave goodbye to the wolf whistles and taut, elastic skin.

a certain age.” No one will tell you that it’s all wine and roses, but for most of these writers, aging certainly has its perks. Covering a broad array of themes from love, to loss, to changing health, to role reversals and new-found power, these women are nothing short of inspirational. Interestingly, the women come from a variety of backgrounds. They are lawyers, politicians, educators, business women, activists, artists and more. They are empty nesters, newly single, retired, working and everything in between. Many of them describe “finding their voice” and redefining themselves as the aging process runs its course. Whether we like it or not, as aging women everything changes – our minds, our bodies, our perceptions and our attitudes. For some, it’s a matter of reinventing themselves when they lose their physical beauty. For Susan Lightstone, it’s “an effort to come to terms with where I now fit in the world.” The book is about celebrations and laments, but mostly celebrations. As Judy Rebick, a social justice activist writes: “Aging in a youth-obsessed society is a complicated matter…..Older

> Eating Together Dinner at Steveston Community Centre

Eating Together in Steveston

G

reat food, music and laughter were all on the menu for the guests of the second annual Eating Together Dinner, hosted by the Steveston Community Society and the City of Richmond at Steveston Community Centre last Sunday. Over 100 people attended the event, which wrapped up Touchstone Family Association’s annual Eating Together Around Town campaign. “I think they really Amanda Oye enjoyed it,” said Jim Kojima, the president of the Steveston Community Society. The campaign had been going on for the week leading up to the dinner, raising awareness of the importance of families taking the time to eat together. “We believe in what Touchstone is doing,” Kojima said. The dinner proved to be a great way of bringing families together to eat and meet other families in the community. There was live music by Music Variations, pasta and salad for dinner, which was prepared by Steveston Community Centre staff and board members, and cupcakes for dessert. “Just about everything was donated this year,” Kojima said. This includes gift certificates that were given out as door prizes and treats for the kids. The Steveston Community Society tries to “contribute to things that are going to make Richmond a better place to live and play,” Kojima said. Amanda Oye covers the social scene.
