Juno Award nominee will perform at sold-out Ethels

Martin van den Hemel photo Hamilton residents Pennie Ly and Kelly Orcutt are hoping the city will beef up police patrols in East Richmond following a rash of break-ins since December.

Hamilton residents want more police patrols after rash of break-ins Signatures to be gathered March 9 on petition by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter East Richmond residents upset about a rash of break-ins since December want city council to dedicate more policing resources to their part of town.

They’re hoping to gather signatures on a petition they plan to soon present to city hall. In December, Steven and Pennie Ly had their house broken into, and the thief made off with, among other things, a number of signed hockey jerseys intended as Christmas gifts. The break-in spurred them into action, and Ly is now the Block Watch captain for several streets in the East Richmond community known as Hamilton. There have been about a dozen break-ins over the past three months,

including two last Friday. “Our Block Watch believes that there are still many residents in the area who do not know that these incidents have been happening and are not taking the necessary steps to protect their families and homes,” Steven Ly said in an e-mail. “We also believe that one of the contributing factors to the increase in crime is that there is very little police presence in the area due to our distance from City Centre.” See Page 4

Farmland now shielded from development

The Grey Cup comes to Richmond

‘General agreement’ on council that Garden City lands be left a natural area by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Local farmland defenders got their wish Monday as city council voted to give three large land parcels a measure of protection from development. The Garden City lands, Department of National Defence lands (to the east) and Terra Nova Rural Park are poised to be designated “conservation and recreation” in a new strategy guiding the growth of Metro Vancouver. City council unanimously agreed to request Metro Vancouver alter the current “general urban” status of the three parcels in the regional growth strategy. The move came after heated discussion at earlier council committee meetings, where impassioned speakers, fearing development, came to the defence of agricultural land. Coun. Harold Steves now considers the land safe from buildings—unless B.C. Supreme Court decides otherwise. The Musqueam want housing on the Garden City lands and is suing the city for control of the city-owned 55-hectare site. “It looked like the Musqueam felt that we were going to try and develop, and this should solve that problem,” said Steves. City council has “general agreement” the Garden City lands will largely be left a natural area in

Fire sends man to hospital An elderly man was taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation following a Tuesday night fire on No. 4 Road. Around 6 p.m., Richmond FireRescue responded to a fire at an older two-storey house at 7200 No. 4 Rd. The fire appears to have started in the area where a plumbing contractor was working on a second-storey bathroom, City of Richmond spokesperson Ted Townsend said. Thanks to an aggressive fire attack, the blaze was limited to the area where it started, though the flames did reach into the attic. The home was occupied by the elderly man and his daughter, who was uninjured. There were no other injuries. —by Martin van den Hemel

Coun. Harold Steves considers the Garden City lands safe, unless a court considers otherwise.

the future, said Steves. The veteran councillor noted nearly two-thirds of the site could be rehabilitated as a productive peat bog. The rest may be used for urban agriculture and playing fields, Steves said. “That’s my idea. Others would like to put buildings on it. The conservation designation allows buildings, but it would still need rezoning from agricultural to do that...and I don’t foresee anyone doing that.” Metro Vancouver will now send a letter to 24 municipalities asking for comment on Richmond’s request before the strategy is changed. Both the Garden City lands and Department of National Defence lands are locked in the Agricultural Land Reserve. The city’s Terra Nova Rural Park, which is used for farming, community gardens and natural wetlands, is not.

School’s rats were expelled last month by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A news report on Tuesday that James Whiteside Elementary is currently overrun with rats had school district officials scratching their heads. A rat problem at the school was first brought to the attention of the district’s maintenance department in late January, and since then a pest control company has been brought in to address the issue. In fact, according to assistant superintendent Nancy Brennan, no droppings have been found at the school since Feb. 21. Aside from bringing in the experts, who managed to trap a few of the rodents, the maintenance crew at the school plugged up holes where the rats may have been hiding. As well, the school’s undergone a thorough cleaning, including the steam

House sales surged in February The benchmark price of a house in Richmond is just $321 short of $1.1 million, according to the latest figures from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. And the Richmond real estate market, along with Vancouver, appears to be the hottest in the Lower Mainland. Detached house sales rose 54.9 per cent in February compared to January, with the median selling price reaching a record $1.03 million. The 251 houses that changed hands is 63 per cent more than in February of 2010, and the median price is up 25 per cent. The sales of condos and townhouses was also up in February in terms of numbers and price, compared to a month earlier. “The intensity of this activity varied between communities,” board president Jake Moldowan said. “Our statistics tell us that single detached homes in Richmond and the west side of Vancouver remain the most sought after properties in our marketplace.” —by Martin van den Hemel

cleaning of carpets. “I’m not sure where this current anxiety is coming from.” In mid-February, Brennan said the district received a couple of anonymous e-mails from parents concerned about the droppings. Aside from a custodian who thoroughly cleans the school every other day, a supplementary cleaning crew was brought in to clean the school from top to bottom over a three-day period. The pest control company continues to visit the school weekly. Students, teachers and staff have been reminded to keep food off the floor, and to be mindful of where they place their leftovers after lunch. Brennan encouraged parents who have cleanliness concerts to speak to their school’s principal or their child’s teacher. As well, parents can contact the district directly with their concerns by going to

the district’s website at www.sd38.bc.ca, and click on the Contact button on the far right of the screen. Richmond’s health department will be looking into the publicized complaints. Environmental health officer Dalton Cross said the department was alerted to a Tuesday afternoon report on radio station CKNW that students have been complaining to their parents about rodent droppings. “Now that we have this information, it will be high on our list in the next inspection rounds,” he said. Cross said that the inspection will look at the general cleanliness of the school as well, including whether trash is piling up, another complaint by parents. Brennan said trash cans are regularly emptied at Whiteside. Donna Sargent, board of education chair for the Richmond school district, said the “school is completely on top of it.”

Applicant asked to consult first on bid to develop Ash Street site A proposal to build six “affordable” single-family houses on a site once eyed for an addictions recovery house has been put on hold after neighbours complained to city hall. City staff had recommended approval of a pilot project at 8180 Ash St. to build six “affordable” single-family houses on the 25,069-square-foot lot. The plan doesn’t require rezoning, but the Provincial Rental Housing Corporation, which is BC Housing’s land holding company, is requesting variances to squeeze six lots on the site, which is surrounded by other single-family homes. The houses would be made available to first-time homebuyers with a maximum income of $61,233. But neighbour Brad Wang told the city in a letter the application was proceeding “so quickly and secretively without proper public consultation.” Other residents had a similar message. “We are extremely disappointed and frustrated on the lack of information on the intended use of this subdivision and without any consultation with the community,” said Kenny Wong in a letter to staff. Only residents living within 50 metres of the site were sent notification letters by mail, as per city policy. But staff are now suggesting the notification area be expanded and a second application sign be erected on the property. Staff are also requesting the proponent host a neighbourhood meeting before the application is considered again. — by Matthew Hoekstra

No injuries in pair of house fires by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A Sunday night fire at a South Richmond house caused plenty of damage and posed a headache for firefighters, but there were no injuries. Around 9 p.m. Sunday, a fire appears to have started in the room above a garage at 9491 Finn Rd. A man, woman and their son were home at the time of the blaze, but they were not injured, City of Richmond spokesperson Ted Townsend said Monday. The fire was contained to just the one room, he said. A large volume of combustible material in the area where the fire occurred posed some difficulty for firefighters aiming to douse the flames, Townsend said. Last week, an abandoned house slated for demolition at 10071 Aintree Cres. suffered extensive damage during a fire. Early in the morning on Monday, Feb. 21, firefighters were greeted by the one-storey house blaze near the corner of No. 4 and Williams roads. The roof collapsed during the fire, but there were no injuries and surrounding homes were not damaged.

Tax breaks eyed for food processors Food processors, storage facilities would support local farmers, says Metro Vancouver by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Tax breaks and new zoning rules could lure processors, storage facilities and other businesses critical to a farm’s success to nearby industrial zones,

says a Richmond councillor. “That way there’ll be processors and distributors to collect the food that the farmers want to grow and send to them,” said Coun. Harold Steves. The idea is among many in Metro Vancouver’s newly-adopted regional food system strategy, which aims to increase capacity to produce food close to home and improve financial viability of the food sector. The strategy urges the creation of agricultural enterprise zones, where a city uses zoning, tax exemptions and other programs to stimulate location of farmrelated businesses—everything from feed stores to large food

“That way there’ll be processors and distributors to collect the food that the farmers want to grow and send to them.” - Harold Steves processing facilities. That would allow businesses to establish themselves, said Steves, who chairs Metro Vancouver’s agriculture committee. At Monday’s standing-room-

only city council meeting, civic politicians heard first-hand from a few East Richmond farmers about a need for such businesses. Several people spoke in favour of an application by Virdi Pacific Holdings Ltd. to rezone 16540 River Rd. from agricultural to industrial to allow a 20,000-square-foot building for a cabinet manufacturing business, and use the remaining land for commercial vehicle parking and storage. City council gave the application first reading after a number of farmers said they need the storage facility for farm vehicles.

Hamilton residents get sympathy from councillors From Page 1 It’s a familiar refrain over the past decade from Hamilton residents who have often been assured by city councillors that more was going to be done for them. One option long under consideration was building a community police station, but that still hasn’t materialized. Coun. Derek Dang sympathizes with residents. “We haven’t forgotten about them,” Dang said. “It truly does need (a community police station). We should be concentrating our efforts on doing that.” Coun. Ken Johnston is city council’s liaison for Hamilton and said lots of infrastructure improvements have been made for that part of the city, including an expanded community centre. “I’ve tried, certainly on a personal level,

to engage with residents. I understand it’s a growing community and it’s very vibrant.” Johnston committed to putting the policing concerns “at the top of my agenda.” He added: “I feel we’re making things happen over there, and making them feel a part of the rest of the city.” Pennie Ly said she’s hoping the growing community of young families will come together and sign a petition on Wednesday, March 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hamilton Community Centre, 5140 Smith Dr. The RCMP’s property crime unit will give a presentation to homeowners on ways to improve their home security on Wednesday, March 16, at 7 p.m. at the Hamilton Community Centre. “Certainly, a police presence would have

a more deterrent effect,” said RCMP Cpl. Bill Lumsdon. “I think citizens should identify their concerns. We as a police unit are doing the best that we can.” Daytime police patrols in East Richmond have been stepped up since the break-ins, but Lumsdon said that a mini-community police station, where officers could do some administrative work, would be a big boost. Lumsdon said residents can take steps to make their homes less tempting for thieves to target. There are safety tips, along with a regularly updated map of Richmond home break-ins, available on the city’s website at www.richmond.ca/homesafety. Garage side doors and patio doors have been popular points of entry for thieves during the recent rash.

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Richmond is one of three short-listed cities in the running to host a national convention next year that could have a $1 million economic impact on the city. The Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance is currently scouting places for the 2012 congress, which is normally held in March or April of every year. Rick Traer, chief executive officer of the alliance, said Laval, Que., and Windsor, Ont. are the two other cities up for consideration. “We are looking primarily at the hotel accommodations and convention space that are available to accommodate our conference,� he said. Anywhere from 350 to 450 delegates participate annually, mainly comprising two types of participants: one representing municipalities,

the East. It would be a great opportunity to showcase Richmond and what the city can do to host sports events, he said. Traer said a request for proposals to host the convention was sent out several weeks ago, and nine cities responded. After an initial review, three potential hosts were shortlisted, he said. The group making the decision has already visited Laval and Windsor, and Richmond is on

tap for next week. The delegates could stay in town for between four and six days total, and that could translate into close to $1 million in economic impact for Richmond should it be selected, Traer said. That decision should come by the first week of April, he said. In light of the city’s successful hosting of the 2010 Winter Olympics, Traer said: “I think Richmond has demonstrated its hosting ability.�

Christy Clark gets to work Premier-designate Christy Clark plans to appoint a cabinet, move the referendum on the harmonized sales tax up to June, and win a seat in a by-election as soon as possible. Clark won the B.C. Liberal leadership vote Saturday, with a narrow victory over Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon on the third round of voting. After the final vote result was revealed at the Vancouver convention centre, Clark was joined by rival candidates and the rest of the B.C. Liberal MLAs up on stage and promised to work together as a team. Clark said she respects their decision to support other candidates— only Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy endorsed her—and she looks forward to building on the legacy of Premier Gordon Campbell. In her speech, Clark stressed her campaign theme of families. “My commitment to putting families first starts with job creation and

On the third and final ballot, Clark received 4,420 votes using the party’s weighted voting system. After third-place contender George Abbott dropped off the ballot, Falcon finished with 4,080 points, 48 per cent of party support to Clark’s 52 per cent. Clark held the lead after two rounds of voting in the B.C. Liberal leadership contest, with 3,575 points, followed by Falcon with 2,564 and Abbott with 2,364. The point totals after the first round were 789 for Abbotsford West MLA Mike de Jong, 2,091 for Shuswap MLA Abbott, 2,411 for Falcon and 3,209 for Clark. —by Tom Fletcher

REVIEW

Falcon got most votes in Richmond by Bhreandáin Clugston Editor While Christy Clark won the Liberal leadership contest on Saturday, runnerup Kevin Falcon was the favourite in Richmond’s three ridings on the first ballot. Falcon, who was backed by Richmond MLAs John Yap and Rob Howard, received 49 per cent of the first ballot vote in Richmond Centre and 43.2 per cent in RichmondSteveston. Only Richmond East was close, where Falcon gathered 37.1 per cent to Clark’s 36.3 per cent. Clark was the second choice with most of de Jong’s supporters. She leapfrogged past Falcon in Richmond East once votes were redistributed after the first ballot. On the third and final ballot, Clark won Richmond East with 50.8 per cent, while Falcon had 59.8 per cent of Richmond Centre and 59.6 per cent of Richmond Steveston. The Liberals used a preferential ballot, where voters got to make second choices, which would be counted if their first choice was eliminated. While Falcon was backed by two of Richmond’s three MLAs (Richmond East MLA Linda Reid, who is deputy speaker, remained neutral), Clark was backed by former Vancouver Fraserview MLA and current Richmond Coun. Ken Johnston. Former Richmonds MLAs Olga Ilich and Greg HalseyBrandt backed Abbott, who finished behind de Jong in Richmond East. The first ballot results were: Richmond East: Kevin Falcon, 37.1 per cent; Christy Clark, 36.3; Mike de Jong, 17.6, George Abbott, 9. Richmond Centre: Kevin Falcon, 49 per cent; Christy Clark, 32.4; George Abbott, 12.4; Mike de Jong, 6.2 Richmond-Steveston: Kevin Falcon, 43.2 per cent; Christy Clark, 32.2; George Abbott, 20.2; Mike de Jong, 4.4. Second ballot results: Richmond East: Kevin Falcon, 41.3 per cent; Christy Clark, 46.5; George Abbott, 12.2. Richmond Centre: Kevin Falcon, 49.8 per cent; Christy Clark, 36.4; George Abbott, 13.8. Richmond-Steveston: Kevin Falcon, 43.5 per cent; Christy Clark, 35.2; George Abbott, 21.3.

Black Press files Police in B.C. have wide discretion to impose fines and impound vehicles for suspected impaired driving.

the statement said. “The change would be similar to a traffic ticket, where you either accept or reject the claim, and have a certain amount of time to appeal the offence.” Such a change would have to be debated and passed in the legislature to take effect. Police in B.C. now have the option of imposing an immediate penalty on anyone who fails a roadside breath test. Instead of issuing a 24-hour suspension or a formal impaired charge, police can

impose a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impound the vehicle for 30 days, with the owner on the hook for the towing and storage charges. The penalties mean one failed roadside test could cost a driver $3,750 before driving again, and that is before any Criminal Code charges and suspensions that may also result. A blood alcohol reading in the “warn” range between 0.05 and 0.08 per cent can result in a threeday driving ban, a $200

“administrative penalty" and another $250 fee to have a driver's licence reinstated. Drivers may also have their car impounded for three days. More than 1,400 drivers were hit with the steeper penalties in the first 20 days of the new rules. Pub and restaurant owners complained that people were afraid to have a single drink after work, and defence lawyers said the government was giving police officers too much discretion to impose penalties.

by Tom Fletcher The B.C. government is considering an appeal period for drivers facing steep new roadside penalties imposed by police. Legislation took effect last September giving B.C. the toughest penalties for impaired driving and excessive speeding in Canada. After hundreds of drivers were fined and had their vehicles seized, Public Safety Minister Rich Coleman announced a review of the new measures late last year. Tuesday he told Kamloops radio station CHNL that the government is considering an appeal period before fines or other penalties take effect. Coleman wasn't available to elaborate, but his office issued a statement later in the day. “One change we are considering is implementing a process so you have a certain amount of time to appeal the offence,”

Hamilton needs a stronger policing presence

F

olks in Hamilton wanted more police patrols after a rash of recent break-ins.

Separated from the rest of the city by miles and miles of farmland, City Centre, Hamilton residents must feel like they are in Ontario sometimes. Hamilton is the eastern-most

part of Richmond. It used to be sparsely inhabited, but development has been encouraged there over the past 25 years. Services are slowly following suit: a firehall was built and the library is offering outreach services. But it’s a long drive along the East-West Connector before the police arrive.

The solution is building a minicommunity police station, where officers could do some administrative work. But Richmond should look beyond its borders. Next door to Hamilton is the community Queensborough— on Lulu Island, but part of New Westminster. It too is separated from the rest of the city, in this

case by the Fraser River. Surely those residents get a bit of separation anxiety from time to time. Richmond and New Westminster should investigate joint policing. While Richmond is RCMP and New West has its own city force, there’s surely some room for co-operation in policing these far-flung communities.

B.C. Views Tom Fletcher

C

hristy Clark spoke passionately about teamwork, unity and listening in the moments after winning the B.C. Liberal leadership, with 48 per cent of voting members arrayed against

“Our government will be stronger because of the dialogue we all started with British Columbians, and we are going to build on that, together,” Clark told a packed convention hall. “We are going to shape the future of B.C., together. We are going to forge a bigger, stronger coalition, together.” A few minutes later, in the middle of the crowded room, an argument between two men turned into a shoving match that escalated until two others jumped in and separated them. Outside the convention hall, Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen was clarifying to reporters that he had not said he was quitting the caucus if Clark defeated his choice, George Abbott. Despite his earlier musings about considering his options in a Clark-led caucus, van Dongen was suddenly impressed with the desire of his colleagues to work together and was keen to do the same. Van Dongen wasn’t the only one shocked at seeing

Abbott, the Shuswap MLA and champion of rural B.C., finish third. Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett had figured the weighted voting system would give Abbott a good shot at bringing his team of mainly Campbell outsiders into the inner circle. Bennett said he felt “pretty good, for a loser,” and showed a brave smile. His choice is not to leave the caucus, but to come back in, if he is invited. The next morning, former Reform and Conservative MP Randy White spoke about the Clark win on CFAX radio in Victoria. He’s working to professionalize a moribund B.C. Conservative Party, and he said he watched a surge of people joining that party as soon as Clark’s narrow victory was known. The B.C. Conservatives will announce new supporters shortly, White said, and people will be surprised. They were not counting on Bennett to be one of those, although White said Bennett told him a month ago he would sign up if Clark won the B.C. Liberal leadership. White is convinced that

Randy White is convinced that Clark’s victory is a “defining moment” for B.C. politics. No longer will B.C. Liberals be able to tell voters, it’s us or the NDP. Clark’s victory is a “defining moment” for B.C. politics. No longer will B.C. Liberals be able to tell voters, it’s us or the NDP. “We’re now acknowledging, and the Liberals are acknowledging that they are a Liberal party,” White said. During the campaign, Clark blundered about on the harmonized sales tax, the timing of the next election and the government’s ability to cap the rapid growth of healthcare spending. She’s fond of saying she spent the last four years listening to the people as a radio host. Apparently that’s long enough to start believing the bumper-sticker solutions that are so often

the fodder of talk radio. There were more hints of this in her victory speech. Clark’s top two priorities are “job creation and fighting poverty.” She’s just won the leadership of a party that has been saying for 15 years that government doesn’t create jobs. And the NDP continues its own earnest but mainly fanciful debate about how poverty can be legislated away by government intervention, while trumpeting distorted statistics about the plight of B.C. children. If Clark wants to reach out to conservative-minded voters, she might start by acknowledging that the province is currently running an operating deficit of close to $1 billion, with another year in the red still to come. But so far it looks as if she will tack to the left, and risk making the B.C. Conservatives’ day. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for The Richmond Review, Black Press newspapers.

.JOVUFT DBO

The preferential ballot wasn’t so complicated Editor: Last Saturday’s selection of premier-designate Christy Clark was by preferential ballot, the ďŹ rst time British Columbians used this method in almost 60 years. What did we learn? Does ranking candidates cause confusion? Guess what? British Columbians can handle it. Some years ago the Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform recommended a ranked ballot but opponents claimed voters would have trouble ďŹ lling it in. Saturday we took a step toward more democracy. Some feared the preferential ballot offered a temptation for strategic voting. Opportunity for strategic voting is very limited. Firstly, a second choice cannot hurt or help one’s ďŹ rst choice. Secondly, most second choices do not ever come into play. For example, Christy Clark refused to reveal her personal second choice, fuelling speculation her second choice was de

Jong. Given Clark and de Jong’s placings, that could be seen as a strategic choice. But is it really? Second choices of the ballots for the last two candidates do not come into play at all. Preferential balloting is largely authentic voting. Yes, candidates might seek to sway their supporters but such appeals have limited inuence. Saturday’s results hardly reveal block voting. With preferential balloting the individual person determines in her own mind which candidates are best for the position and in what order. Exactly how it should be! It is a huge improvement over our current system where many voters feel forced to vote, not for their ďŹ rst choice, but strategically, lest their vote is wasted or helps elect an MLA they really don’t want. During the past weeks there was much chatter that while we knew who would lead on the ďŹ rst count, beyond that all

bets were off because of the vagaries of the preferential ballot. That is quite incorrect. The preferential ballot has been used in Australia since 1902 and is used in many places, today. It is very predictable. Anyone leading on the ďŹ rst count has a nine to one chance of winning. Upsets are possible but improbable. Saturday’s results conďŹ rmed that. Under our usual voting system it is every candidate against every other candidate until one remains standing. Preferential balloting provides an incentive for rivals to play nice, except against the perceived front-runner, but the front-runner has an incentive to play nice to all. How much we saw of that this ďŹ rst time out is a matter of debate. What is not debatable is that all other things being equal, the preferential ballot induces greater civility. Given the nature of politics, that is not so bad! It would attract more women.

Perhaps the B.C. Liberals missed an opportunity. Why did they not follow the example of Alberta Conservatives and invite anyone on the voters list to participate in this signiďŹ cant decision? And then there is the convenience of electronic voting. There were no problems and it could be done within 60 seconds from the privacy of your own

home. In addition, the Internet program rejects faulty ballots, hence, no more spoiled ballots. All of these are democratic improvements, but is there not a much bigger lesson? Why should just 1.5 per cent of voting age British Columbians participate in selecting the next premier? Perhaps the B.C. Liberals missed an opportunity. Why did they not follow the example of the Alberta Conservatives and invite anyone on the voters list to participate in this signiďŹ cant decision? Why the membership restriction? Christy Clark promised to break the ďŹ xed Election Day law because as she put

it, “It is not right that the premier be chosen by party members.� If Clark is serious about change, she should not be breaking Campbell’s monument to democratic reform, but she should amend the B.C. Constitution Act to make it mandatory that leadership contests for political parties, while in power, are open to all on the voting list without membership requirements. After all, this is about selecting a premier and about a more robust democracy. Surely, that would be Saturday’s best lesson of all and real change. Nick Loenen Richmond

UNBELIEVABLE FOOD!

letters Sent airport fuel pipeline back to the drawing board Editor: The following letter has been sent to the environmental review committee. I would suggest anyone concerned contact them before April 11, 2011. Reviewing the concept documents (available at www.eao.gov.bc.ca) for the 15 kilometre jet fuel pipeline, in particular appendix 2A, pages 4 and 5, suppositions are made by the authors/ authority, which clearly indicate a bias against an offshore port, west of Sea Island. There is a statement that the single point marine loading facility would be unusable, due to weather conditions, for 11 days (average) per year. Considering that this terminal would be used, by the proponents own statement, only a few times per month, and will have an onland six tank storage capacity of 60 to 72 million liters, it seems to be an argument for the offshore loading facility! The red herring of the proposed 2027 foreshore runway, is also used to militate against the construction and use of an offshore loading facility. No

clear need, or date or method of financing has been made for this proposed runway. It’s a “maybe, if, or when” type proposal. In addition, the expressed concern for the integrity of Sturgeon Banks, seem to be of little concern in the construction proposal for this somewhat nebulous runway. When this is balanced against the possible “max” pipeline leak in the overland 15-kilometre Richmond pipeline, of 12,500 liters per minute (for a “short” period), this whole proposal must be halted, and sent back to the drawing board. We must gain a truly unbiased look at the several options, which we do not have at present! The citizens of Richmond have, through their council, strongly opposed this unwarranted, geologically hazardous project, and can but trust that the environmental review will point out the shortcomings, and stop the present proposal from continuing in its present form! T.R. (Terry) Murphy Richmond

What’s up with staff? Editor: Time and again, I read letters from Richmond residents supporting keeping the Garden City lands green and opposing development on it. So how does a murky group generically labelled “city staff” come to make a recommendation to council to support an “urban” designation for the lands ? A couple years ago, in the midst of the recession, “city staff” also put forward a proposal for our city to spend $ 5million to building a destination museum. Who exactly are the people in this “city staff” group, and what was their thought process in arriving at these nonsensical recommendations ? Our recent utility bill rose again. Food

Keep Garden City lands as parks and open space Editor: I live in the City Centre area and am very perplexed to see this newly invented designation for the Garden City lands—“General Urban.” It was designated as parks and open space before, then it was designated as “under study” when we were shown the map for the discussion of the Official Community Plan for the City Centre. The development parties tried to get rid of its agricultural status that is protecting it from the development into the new high density housing area, probably highrises, then the commission rejected this claim and it had to go back to parks and open space. Instead we get this bad smelling surprise? We never discussed this new designation and it was all done behind our back! We have been already forced to have this enormous density by the city hall and reduced park rate—twice less then the rest of the city—and now our green space is under the threat to be developed? Our OCP is already approved and city hall has no right to change it without the consent of the people. I am wondering which council members want to side with the people that live in the City Centre, to fight for our quality of life? Olga Tkatcheva Richmond

Editor: I’ve always felt that The Richmond Review was a superb paper and your last edition where you ran your annual stories of young people under the age of 30 topped the charts. What a breath of fresh stories highlighting those who have caught a falling star and are now contributing so much to the community and are stellar in inspiring others. They certainly make us all feel very proud to be part of the same community. It is a version of catching random acts of kindness, including our former neighbour, Sam Wade. Many thanks!

Yi-Yang Chen, 20, is a student at Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. The native of Taiwan wowed judges Robin Mc-

Cabe, Janet Scott-Hoyt and Alvin Chow with his work on the piano. The international competition for young pianists was held over four days in Richmond—the 13th installment of the contest that began in 1995. This year’s event, which culminated Saturday, drew nearly 40 competitors, ages 19 to 27, from around the world. For his winning performance, Chen takes home a $5,000 cash prize. Earning second place, and $2,000, was Adam Zukiewicz, 26, a doctoral music student from University of Toronto. Naomi Kudo, 23, a graduate student from the Juilliard School, won third place and $800. Finalist cash prizes were also handed out to Romi Kato (Japan/Moscow), Veselin Ninov (Bulgaria/U.S.) and Devon Joiner (B.C./ Juilliard). —by Matthew Hoekstra

Art About Finn Slough returns this week The 11th annual Art About Finn Slough show takes place this week. The developed from an observation that many people come to Finn Slough and paint, photograph, sketch, write, make music about it. The exhibition is held at the Richmond Cultural Centre today to Sunday. An evening celebration on Friday, 7 to 9 p.m. will have art, live music, guest speakers and refreshments. The Art about Finn Slough exhibition is an un-juried show and welcomed all art with Finn Slough as the focus, including painting, photography, sculpture, textiles, wood, glass, metal, mixed and multi media, poems, music and short written reflections. This years theme is “Swash, where the river

flows” —which has both a physical meaning (uprush and backwash is the water that washes up on shore after an incoming wave has broken) and a more philosophical idea of what the mighty Fraser River brings in and takes away. A special feature this year will be an artwork that features several historic photographs of Finn Slough and it’s community. These have been collected over many years by the local historian for Finn Slough and we are excited to share these with the exhibition attendees this year. The show runs 1 to 9 p.m. today, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Richmond Cultural Centre is at 7700 Minoru Gate.

K, it’s official. I’ve entered the 21st century. I just read my first ebook on my new iPad. To be honest, it took me ages to figure out how to get an Adobe ID and download the software to read it, but once I accomplished that, it was clear sailing. Until‌I was three quarters of the way through the book and realized that it “expiredâ€? in a few days. In all my years of reading, I’ve never had a book expire on me. I may have expired on a few books though, through sheer exhaustion. A whole new experience this e-book thing. The jury’s still out on whether I want to spend the rest of my days reading solely from a screen or not. At this nascent time in my e-reading life, I’d say no. But I’m not about to rule it out just yet. Although I really do like the feel of paper and the smell of ink‌‌ I decided to cut my

teeth on an e-book called Bulu: African Wonder Dog by Dick Houston. If you like Jack Russell terriers and stories that take place in Africa, then you’ll enjoy this light book. It’s the true story of Anna and Steve Tolan who moved from England to Zambia to start a wildlife conservation and education centre. They also regularly took in orphaned wild animals. Wanting a dog, they adopted Bulu, a Jack Russell with none of the usual characteristics of the breed. Bulu quickly became the fearless protector of the orphaned animals that Anna and Steve took in. Between the warthogs, monkeys, baboons, elephants, and bushbacks, Bulu had his paws full. And Bulu had no fear – whether he came upon lions or hippos or alligators, it didn’t matter. His job was to protect his ‘family’, whether it was Anna and Steve or the orphaned animals

The jury’s still out on whether I want to spend the rest of my days reading solely from a screen or not.

in his care. As the author says: “Families aren’t so much about blood. They’re about heart.â€? Houston paints a delightful picture of the emotional side of animals – their capacity for love and compassion, and in Bulu’s case, extreme bravery. Full of suspense and energy, Bulu is an easy read for those who like wildlife and have a strong stomach. (There are several graphic descriptions of encounters with lions and poisonous snakes that aren’t for the faint of heart.) This is much more than your average dog story and a really enjoyable read. As for reading on my iPad, I’m going to continue to do it, especially when I travel and don’t want to shlepp six or seven novels with me. My husband Harvey is a total convert and ONLY reads e-books now. But am I giving up “realâ€? books anytime soon? I think not.

world. Grown at an elevation of more than 7,000 feet above sea level, Blue Mountain (named for the region in Jamaica) coffee is the world’s finest quality coffee. Rocanini offers a less expensive Ethiopian coffee, but most people (thanks to the West Coast coffee culture) ask for Blue Mountain. Then they watch the barista brew the Blue Mountain in a siphon machine, rubbing the bottom of the glass orb with a towel and producing a rich, dark brew. It is a performance. Siphons originated in Germany, but Japan added the technology to gauge precise temperatures. The machines are most popular in Japan, but it was in San Francisco where Dawn experienced siphoned coffee and decided to bring it to Canada.

roaster of coffee, owner Dawn Peng opened the café so she could supply and sell the coffee she roasts. The name, Rocanini, is a play on English, Chinese, and Italian language. “Rock” in English makes one think of a solid foundation. In Chinese, “rock” sounds like “in” as in trendy, fashionable, luxurious. And the “anini” part of the name sounds Italian. Urban and fusion however, are not the only draws. Coffee is too (yes, I know, you are thinking, hey, there couldn’t be more cafes in one neighbourhood and how different can coffee be).

Don Fennell photo Hilary Schaap and her McMath Wildcats teammates will take on the province’s best.

McMath reaches provincials by Don Fennell Sports Editor The R.A. McMath Wildcats’ impressive win streak ended at 19 games at last week’s Vancouver and District playdowns. But it’s done little to dampen their enthusiasm going into the provincial high school junior girls’ basketball championships which tip off March 10 in Abbotsford. “This is a great opportunity for the kids and I just want them to go out and have fun,” says McMath head coach Pete Tyler. The St. Thomas Aquinas Saints defeated the Wildcats 60-47 in last Thursday’s zone final played at McMath. Tyler

said both teams played well but the Saints simply shot the ball better. The Wildcats earlier defeated Carson Graham 58-32 and Sutherland Sabres 56-35. The Wildcats (Siobhan Fernandes, Katrina Tan, Megan Clarke, Danielle Kiss, Camille Robinson, Natasha Magnus, Katrina Tolentino, Emma Partridge, Hilary Schaap, Tara MacKinnon, Charlotte St. Cyr, Kim Herrera, and Danica Llaneta) are seeded ninth and will play No. 8 Vernon in their opening game at the provincials to be played at the University of the Fraser Valley. The 16-team tournament will continue through March 12.

Don Fennell photo Richmond Sockeyes captain Patrick Hunter beat North Delta goalie Alex Wind with this shot during an extended powerplay in Game 3 of their best-of-seven first-round Pacific International Junior Hockey League playoff series Friday. Sockeyes scored four goals on the manadvantage on their way to an 8-1 win. Richmond sewed up the series with a 2-1 win Saturday in North Delta. Sockeyes will face Delta Ice Hawks in the best-of-seven Tom Shaw Conference final beginning this Saturday (March 5) at 5:45 p.m. at Minoru Arenas.

Sockeyes sweep series But Richmond coach says North Delta fought hard to begin playoffs by Don Fennell

Tom Shaw Conference Final

Sports Editor It isn’t often you get a chance to catch your breath in the playoffs. So with a full week off between games, the Richmond Sockeyes consider themselves fortunate. “There’s going to be a lot of hockey if we keep going, so we’re happy with the time off,” said Richmond head coach Judd Lambert. “But we have to be prepared to play when we’re told to. It’s the nature this time of year that there are a lot of games in a short span.” The Sockeyes earned the rare break by sweeping the North Delta Devils in a minimum four games in the opening round of the Pacific International Junior Hockey League playoffs last week. But they had to play four games in six nights, the last three in as many days. Richmond was sluggish to start Game 1 Feb. 21 in North Delta, and was down 3-0 early in the first period before bouncing back for an 8-4 victory. After a couple of days off, Richmond was able to squeeze out a 2-1 win

Thursday at Minoru Arena, followed by an 8-1 home win Friday and another 2-1 decision Saturday in North Delta. “I was surprised the way the games went,” said Lambert. “But North Delta worked hard and played well. At least two of the games could have gone either way.” He said Richmond’s effective powerplay

made a significant difference in the Sockeyes winning the series. And goaltender Aaron Oakley, who only gave up four goals total after surrending three in the opening period of Game 1, was solid. “It was good to see him get comfortable and make the big saves when we needed him to,” said Lambert. Richmond’s attention is now on the Delta Ice Hawks who’ll they face in the Tom Shaw Conference final beginning this weekend. Game 1 in the best-of-seven series goes at 5:45 p.m. Saturday at Minoru Arena. Delta defeated Grandview Steelers 4-2 Tuesday to win their best-of-seven first-round playoff series in five games. Delta had 71 points in the regular season, second only to Richmond’s 78 points. Richmond won the regular-season series between the teams, four games to two. Delta’s wins came Oct. 26 (4-3 in a shootout) and Dec. 3 (3-1) at Ladner Leisure Centre. The Sockeyes won 5-4 in a shootout Oct. 7, 5-3 Nov. 25, 5-3 Dec. 14 and 2-1 in overtime Feb. 15 in Ladner.

Sharks, Wildcats come up just shy by Don Fennell Sports Editor

Alyssa Graeme’s hard work and talent weren’t enough to lift the Steveston-London Sharks past St. Thomas Aquinas at the zone playdowns.

The 2010-11 high school senior girls’ basketball season ended in heartbreaking fashion for the Steveston-London Sharks last Thursday. After sinking a three pointer with less than 20 seconds remaining, Taylor Bakken was awarded three foul shots in the Sharks’ game against Point

Grey at the Lower Mainland AAA playdowns. Bakken sank the first two shots and narrowly missed the third. But with the ball again in their hands in the final seconds of regulation, the Sharks had a chance to send the game into overtime but the shot was stuffed on what some might have called a foul. As a result, Point Grey—which had defeated Steveston-London by more than 30 points in the

Sharks’ season-opener—held on for a 48-47 victory. “We certainly gave it the old try,” said Steveston-London coach Les Hamaguchi. “It was disappointing because it was a tough game to lose. If we’d won we would have had two chances at making the B.C.’s, but I’m very proud of the way the kids responded.” See Page 21

Seafair juveniles make history It’s been a long time coming but Seafair’s Juvenile A1 team has clinched the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association Flight 1 league banner for the first time in its history. Seafair compiled a 14-3-3 record while accumulating 47 of a possible 60 points. The team is led by a veteran core of players, some of whom are completing their 15 years of hockey at Seafair in spectacular fashion. See Page 22

boxing career. Ward will be holding a special public meet and greet. Tickets for Rumble at the Rock VIII are available through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.ca.

Badminton pair big at Games Richmond’s Christin Tsai teamed with Vancouver’s Nathan Choi to win the mixed doubles badminton title at the 2011 Canada Winter Games in Halifax. “We were pretty happy to make the semifinals in the beginning so this is totally unexpected,” said Tsai. Figure skater Jessica Jiang won a gold medal in pre-novice dance, while Matthew Lai also reached the podium, earning a silver medal in the Special Olympics men’s level 2 figure skating event.

Mattu out From Page 20

The Sharks trailed by nine points with four minutes to go against Point Grey but cut the deficit back to five points when Anmol Mattu, the team’s dynamic Grade 10 point guard, fouled out on a debatable call, said Hamaguchi. As a result, she wasn’t available for the final 150 seconds. But Hamaguchi was still confident the Sharks would be able to continue the rally. Steveston-London was forced to play their last two games at the district playdowns without one of their inspirational leaders, Jamie Wheeler. •R.A. McMath Wildcats were eliminated earlier in the week as a 71-45 loss at the Lower Mainland zone playdowns to Burnaby South capped their season.

Seafair Islanders won the PCAHA’s Juvneile A league championship.

Core provides strong leadership From Page 20

“Our 20-year-old players— Sam Smith, Kyle Hay, Leland Guttridge, Jared Davis, Duncan Brow, Aaron Chin and Jeremy Lunot-Tucker— have provided leadership and inspiration to our group all year,” says head coach Derek Chichak. “They have instilled an extremely high level of discipline in a very tough division of hockey.” Seafair accumulated only 247 penalty minutes over the 20-game campaign. Rounding out the roster is a balanced group of first- and second-year players, which bodes well for the future. The Islanders are also coached by longtime Seafair coach Bob Walker. Walker and Chichak have re-connected as coaches after coaching

together with their nine-year-old sons back in 1998. “It’s been a great year working with this dedicated group of players who have clearly set their goal as provincial champions. The team is looking forward to the challenges that lay ahead.” says Walker. Seafair receives a bye in the first round of the playoffs and will host the final four at the Richmond Ice Centre on March 11. The provincial championships are hosted by Ridge Meadows in March and Seafair is determined to be there. “It’s been our team goal from Day 1 but we’ve got a lot of work to do and some very motivated teams to get through to get there,” Chichak says.

Bandits get shot at banner following home win at oval Richmond Minor Hockey’s Bantam C1 Bandits came up big when they needed to most last weekend. Not only did a 6-4 homeice win at the Richmond Olympic Oval extend the

Bandits’ season, but earned them a spot in the upcoming Presidents’ League championships. The games between Richmond and Arbutus have always been hardhitting and exhausting,

with Richmond winning only one game between the teams during the regular season. It was not looking good for Richmond early in their weekend meeting either, with Arbutus tak-

ing a 4-1 lead at the end of the ďŹ rst period. But Richmond made a big comeback with two goals in the second period and three more in the third. The Bandits’ coaching

staff of Tom Johnston, Kevin Kuramoto and Ray Mah could not be more proud of what this group of players accomplished this season. In addition to their on-ice success, the Bandits did not receive a

single major penalty the entire season. The Bandits are Kylee Styles, Harry Deng, Nikhil Dewan, Marcus Dhesi, Tyler Georgelin, Austin Goertz, Cole Johnston, Niklas Kuramoto, Alexa

Mah, Tristan Mah, Tyler Newcomb, Alec Parhar, Arjan Sandhu, Jerry So, Jocelyn Tang, Darren Whiteside and Conph Zhi. The Bandits’ overall record including playoffs is 22-8-5.

From Previous Page North Vancouver District Mayor Richard Walton and North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto also voted against the bylaw after hearing a delegation from North Vancouver-based Dynamic Equipment Rentals, which opposed the fees. Metro district director of air quality Ray Robb said the region will work with small business and advocate for federal funding to help subsidize engine upgrades. He defended the measures as critical to reducing airborne diesel particulate – one of the most significant threats to human health among air contaminants. “It will speed the migration to cleaner engines,” Robb said. “So it will save lives. "And it will deliver health care benefits worth many times the cost of reducing these emissions.” Unlike on-road diesel engines, which have become steadily cleaner through tougher standards, off-road equipment hasn’t been targeted until much more recently and typically keep running far longer than trucks. Some directors expressed concern heavily polluting machines may relocate to the Fraser Valley Regional District but continue to occasionally work here. Metro officials hope law-abiding operators and local residents will help keep watch for violators. Two inspectors are being hired to enforce the new rules.

from air toxins. “The benefits far outweigh the cost of implementation and the cost to the industry,” he said. Langley City Coun. Gayle Martin, who voted against the bylaw, said she would have preferred to put more money and effort into ensuring AirCare stations crack down on heavy diesel trucks. “I’m not against the intent of this bylaw but I think we could have allowed more time for those who need to retrofit or replace their engines,” she said.

Metro Vancouver’s board voted Friday to pass the new bylaw regulating off-road engines, despite objections from some heavy equipment users. It will charge the most polluting machines hundreds and eventually thousands of dollars a year depending on the horsepower rating, although there’s a provision for owners to recoup 80 per cent of the fees by retrofitting or replacing the engine. Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini, who chairs Metro’s environment committee, called the new system of fees the most significant measure the region can take to reduce the risk of cancer
