Hit-and-run driver claims dog, injures pedestrian

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A Richmond family is heartbroken after their dog Ranger died Saturday night following a hit-and-run collision on Shell Road that also injured the wife of the dog’s owner.

Around 8 p.m. on March 3, Ranger, his owner and his owner’s wife were out for a walk, and crossing Shell Road toward Bamfield Gate at a marked crosswalk when what’s described as a four-door dark grey import sedan raced down the street and struck Ranger while clipping the wife of Ranger’s owner. The Richmond Review was contacted Tuesday by the sister of the dog’s owner, who asked that her family’s name not be published. The owner’s wife suffered bruising and soreness when she was struck by the vehicle’s side mirror, which was left at the scene and handed over to police investigators. See Page 3

Onni floats Parents and community cope with three-day teachers strike rezoning plan in Steveston

Classes resuming on Thursday morning

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Richmond Board of Education chair Donna Sargent credits a community-wide effort with helping parents to cope with this week’s three-day teachers strike. Only 25 students showed up at schools in the entire district on Monday, and Sargent said efforts by local community associations, among others, to provide alternate daytime programming and extra space for youth “must have made a huge difference.” It was no doubt difficult for Richmond’s many working families to make daytime arrangements for their children, she said, and credits community partners for “stepping up.” “We were very thankful for that,” she said. The B.C. Teachers Federation announced the three-day teachers strike last week, but with no picket lines planned, schools would remain open to non-teaching staff. But the district, worried about inadequate supervision, urged parents to make alternate plans for their kids. A group of Richmond students have been gathering outside Richmond School District office on to support teachers. Students displayed signs such as “Without them dis wud b yr grammar” and “I care about my education. Do you?”

Bhreandáin Clugston photo A group of Hugh Boyd Secondary School students set up in front of the Richmond School District office in support of teachers.

“It is our belief that teachers are extremely under-appreciated,” said Mack Marcotte, a Hugh Boyd student. “They put in all sorts of time and effort that people just don’t realize and they are exceedingly under paid.” Meanwhile in Victoria on Tuesday, thousands of union members showed up outside the B.C. Legislature to protest Victoria’s handling of the teachers strike. Unless teachers violate a Labour Relations Board ruling and extend their strike beyond Wednesday, the debate on legislation putting an end to their withdrawal of service could stretch into next week before becoming law, B.C. Liberal house leader Rich Coleman said Monday. In weekend interviews, B.C.

City buys swath of Sturgeon Banks Richmond has made a deal to buy a portion of Sturgeon Banks—nearly matching the size of the Garden City lands—for conservation. City council agreed to buy 51.4 hectares (127 acres) of Lulu Island’s western foreshore with Ducks Unlimited for a total cost of $3,050,000 in cash and donation receipts under the federal Ecological Gifts Program. The land is just outside the west dyke between Blundell Road and Westminster Highway. “This significant acquisition on the foreshore conserves an important part of the Pacific flyway for migratory birds, complements the Sturgeon Banks provincial Wildlife Management Area and will create new opportunities for the community to experience the natural environment of the Sturgeon Banks,” said city spokesperson Kim Decker. The two parcels acquired in the deal were previously owned by the Grauer family. Under terms of the deal, Richmond will own two-thirds of the land, while Ducks Unlimited Canada will own one-third. According to the B.C. Ministry of Environment, at least 47 species of shorebirds and significant populations of great blue herons, swans, snow geese and ducks feed in Sturgeon Banks. The city is expected to formally announce the purchase on March 22. —by Matthew Hoekstra

Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert wouldn’t rule out teachers staying off the job beyond three consecutive days this week granted by the LRB ruling on essential services. The LRB ruling also allows for one day off the job in following weeks, but some B.C. school districts begin spring break the week of March 12. Coleman said as long as the teachers’ union follows the LRB ruling, he sees no reason to accelerate passage of Bill 22, which carries the threat of heavy fines for further strike action by teachers once it is passed. NDP house leader John Horgan said opposition MLAs will hold up passage of Bill 22, which would extend the current BCTF contract terms and permit the

appointment of a mediator in the year-long dispute. NDP MLAs expect to speak for the maximum 17 hours they are permitted, which would likely extend the debate into next week. Education Minister George Abbott said the three-day strike allows teachers to “vent” their hostility toward the government before returning to classrooms. Abbott says Bill 22 is complex, and it deserves a full debate. The legislation changes the rules for hiring teachers as well as dealing with class size and special needs support. If the government had staged an emergency debate to push the bill through this past weekend, it could have inflamed tensions further and triggered an illegal strike, Abbott said.

Onni is floating a plan to rezone its soon-tobe-built waterfront commercial properties in Steveston. Construction of the last Imperial Landing waterfront parcels began last fall—six low-rise buildings zoned to allow maritime uses on the ground floor and apartments above. Now Onni is testing the waters of public opinion to change the restrictive maritime-use zoning to allow businesses such as a grocery store, pharmacy and fitness centre. Onni held two open houses in the Lord Byng Elementary gym in late February to pitch the idea to Steveston residents and business owners. On a website dedicated to Onni’s new proposal, waterfrontrezoning.com, the developer contends rezoning the commercial space to allow a broader range of commercial retail uses “will better serve the community’s needs.” A spokesperson couldn’t be reached, but the website notes Onni is now “quantifying” information collected at the open houses. “We will be meeting internally and making a decision of whether or not to proceed with applying for additional retail uses to the current zoning,” the website says. In the last decade Onni has tried repeatedly to change the site’s zoning, with no success. Construction of the project is expected to be complete later this year.

Survey to guide health planning Vancouver Coastal Health is surveying Richmond residents to learn more about the population’s general health and well-being. Health officials aim to reach 7,000 people, aged 18 and up, to ask questions about smoking habits, physical activity levels, fruit and vegetable consumption, and community participation. Information gathered will be used to develop and guide health promotion programs in Richmond. “It’s important to gather this information so that we can ensure that we are offering relevant and appropriate programs and services to Richmond residents,” said Dr. James Lu, Richmond’s medical health officer. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete at vch.ca/healthyrichmond.

Family heartbroken after severely injured dog had to be put down From Page 1 Ranger didn’t fare so well, and he had to be euthanized because of the extent of his injuries. “I hope bad karma and the wrath of whatever God you pray to will come down upon you,” wrote Heather M. in an e-mail. “You were driving so fast and recklessly you failed to stop at the crosswalk that is across Shell Road to Bamfield Gate. Upon doing this you took the life of a beloved family dog, one who had brought joy and happiness to 4 people as well as other extended family members and friends, not just people but fellow

dogs as well.” Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said investigators are urging the driver who was responsible to turn himself in. According to police, the sedan “made no attempt to miss the two pedestrians” who were wearing dark clothing at the time. Heather said her family is heartbroken. “This dog was a member of a family not just the pet, and will be missed more than you will ever know. You crushed his right pelvis, and caused massive internal bleeding. There was so much damage the poor dog had to

be put down,” Heather wrote. Cpl. Turley reminded pedestrians to wear light-coloured and reflective clothing at night, and to not assume a vehicle will stop, even if you are in a marked crosswalk. “Pedestrians need to make eye contact with every driver/vehicle coming towards them to determine for themselves whether or not it looks like they’re going to stop,” Turley said. “The investigation is continuing and we’d like to encourage both witnesses and the person responsible to do the right thing and contact police,” Turley said.

Staff Reporter IKEA will open its new Richmond location April 25, the Swedish furniture giant has announced. Its new blue-clad store, on Jacombs Way, boasts a much larger 334,000 square feet and will replace its Sweden Way location, which will close three days earlier, on April 22. Over 9,000 products will be showcased in 51 room settings, and will include a 600-seat restaurant and 1,400 parking spaces, according to an IKEA Canada spokesperson.

Plans for Richmond Walmart soon to be unveiled Details of a proposed Walmart store in City Centre could be unveiled later this month. City staff are in the “final throws” of drafting a report on the proposed rezoning to allow the big box retail store, according to Joe Erceg, the city’s general manager of planning and development. City council’s planning committee could consider the report as early as March 20. Walmart was a driving force in the redevelopment of the Alexandra neighbourhood of West Cambie, after the retailer’s development arm began purchasing lots near Alderbridge Way and Garden City Road over a decade ago. Planning staff have been negotiating with Walmart on the store’s form and character to fit city council’s vision of a large urban retailer— instead of a box box store surrounded by parking. —by Matthew Hoekstra

City Board guide customers to the new Richmond outlet and a new oneway westbound road linking Knight Street and Jacombs Road is being built as part of the project. The elevated structure is similar in design to IKEA’s Coquitlam store. The big box won’t have a green roof, but does boast some green features: a geothermal heat-

ing and cooling system, a small rooftop garden for employees, some solar power panels and systems to reduce storm water runoff. Solar power panels are also mounted on the sign tower to generate electricity for the parking lot. The original Richmond store, located on No. 3 Road near Cambie, wais Canada’s first IKEA location. It later moved to

its current Sweden Way location. The retailer, founded in 1943, now boasts 11 stores nationwide, and 325 stores in 40 countries around the world. Grand opening celebrations for the public begin at 7 a.m. April 25, promising fun family entertainment and giveaways. The new store is located at 3820 Jacombs Rd.

bargaining, in a perfunctory kind of way, for close to a year. Both were far apart at the beginning, and have made little progress. The B.C. Teachers Federation has never agreed that its members should be subject to the “net zero” mandate which the government has applied to labour negotiations. While other government sectors have come to agreements (including school support workers), the BCTF won’t even discuss it. This dispute shouldn’t even be about wages. Teachers have some very strong arguments in their favour, including a B.C. Supreme Court ruling, that point to serious problems with class size and the number of special needs students in classrooms. This should be the issue on which bargaining focuses, and both sides should be willing to give up something to improve class size and composition. After all, this goes to the heart of whether students are actually progressing while in school. This should be what education is all about.

Don Denton/Victoria News photo Teachers and supporters march down on to the lawn of the provincial Legislature building during a Tuesday protest against the governments’ actions during the ongoing teacher contract dispute. Thousands of protesters from around the province took part in the event.

The BCTF went on a twoweek illegal strike in 2005 over this issue, and enjoyed a fair amount of public support. This time around, even though class size and composition remain as important issues, the demands for 15 per cent wage increases and other additional benefits have turned off some members of the public, who might otherwise be supportive. Many teachers are itching to “stick it to the government.” But are they? It seems to me they are punishing students, first

and foremost. Students are missing three days of school, and many have already faced additional challenges because of the lack of report cards and lack of meaningful consultation with parents. Secondly, they are punishing themselves. They will lose three days pay, and when this dispute ends, they are unlikely to make it up. If they continue to strike one day a week (which may or may not happen), both they and students will lose out some more.

There is no need for a sixmonth cooling off period, as the government proposes. Get the two sides in a room and lock the doors, and make them come up with a settlement within the week. This has dragged on far too long already. Unfortunately, the BCTF loves to have knockdown, drag out fights with governments (no matter what the political stripe). It has happened so many times in the past that no other interpretation is possible. Governments also relish such fights. The Liberal

government is down in the polls and hopes that it will gain support by playing hardball with the BCTF. Meanwhile, students and parents are caught in the middle, and B.C.’s reputation as a place of excellence in education is taking a beating. One more point. The BCTF should stop using the word “bullying” when discussing its contract dispute. It’s a labour dispute, with two sides taking vastly different positions. It’s not a school yard bullying. —Langley Times

dopted as an infant, Jeanette Winterson has spent her entire life fascinated by identify and how she defines herself. In her new no-holds-

barred memoir, Why be Happy When You Could be Normal, she scours her memory, her present and her future for clues to happiness and belonging. Describing her fanatically religious adoptive family as “refugees in our own life” she details the tyrannies that the flamboyantly crazy Mrs. Winterson (she never calls her mom) rains down on her. These included beatings, exorcism, and locking Jeanette out on the front steps in the cold for hours. And then there’s her unhappy, ineffectual father who lived on the periphery. It’s a sad but brilliant story about the

sense of loss that comes with being adopted, and the consequent search for identity and answers. Through it all, Jeanette uncovers the variety of distortions we call love. Finding refuge in books, reading and writing, Winterson says: “Fiction and poetry are doses, medicines. What they heal is the rupture reality makes on the imagination.” And there was plenty of rupture in Jeanette’s life – from her mother kicking her out of the house at 16 because Jeanette told her she loved a girl, to fractured relationships and a trip into madness. In her search for connection,

Jeanette chronicles her various relationships, and when she finally meets her birth mother, yet another search begins. At the end, she acknowledges that she still feels lost: “I have worked hard at being the hero of my own life, but every time I checked the register of displaced person, I was still on it. I didn’t know how to belong.” Growing up with a warped sense of family, Jeanette realizes that love is not something innate; we have to be taught how to love. With her entire identity built around being an orphan, she clearly doesn’t know

how to love. She writes: “When love is unreliable and you are a child, you assume that it is the nature of love – its quality – to be unreliable…In the beginning the love you get is the love that sets.” Written with bravery and heart and exquisite in its candor, this autobiography is an emotional and literary tour de force.

Pre-K to Grade 12 Grammar

Robocall denials ring hollow Editor: When I was a child, I was read the Aesop Fable of the “Boy Who Called Wolf.” The lesson of that fable was that if you lie often enough, no one will believe you, even if you are telling the truth. The Harper Conservatives claim not to have any part in the robocall perversion of democracy. That may, or may not, be true. But they have a long record, right from the top, of misleading Canadians, if not outright lying (income trusts, Senate appointments, equalization payments to the Provinces, etc), of other subversions of democracy and open government (sabotaging Parliamentary committees, proroguing Parliament – twice, muzzling bureaucrats, firing those who disagree with them, etc) and outright sleazy tactics (expensive and disgusting attack ads on opposition leaders). Their instinct seems to be to attack first, and to be open and honest only when they have no other choice. Now we have the robocall controversy, where lies and deceptions were directed to the voters in a number of ridings, many, if not most, where the Harper Conservatives had the most to gain. A lot of money and organizing would have had to have been behind that coordinated effort. Now they claim that they had nothing to do with it. That may be true, but we are seeing deep skepticism directed towards them. Like the boy who called wolf, even if they are telling the truth, the Harper Conservatives don’t deserve to be believed, and aren’t. That is so sad! Ian MacLeod Richmond

Some kids really do love school

Clean up after your dog Editor: Believe it or not, spring is coming and with that is my annual letter regarding “doggy doo.” As the owner of a small dog that I walk twice a day, I am very ashamed of the dog owners that do not clean up after their animals. With the warmer (we hope) weather coming, children are using the playgrounds and more people are strolling the neighbourhoods—why should they be subject to the unsightly and unsanitary piles of dog poop that is all over the place. Why should city workers have to clean up grass areas before they cut the grass or, as I suspect, just mow over the lot and spread the poop all around? When you are an animal owner you are responsible for that animal and that means carrying a “poop bag” to clean up after them. That does not mean leaving a mess all over playgrounds, boulevards and community grass areas. It is not healthy for people or other animals who use these places. Why should anyone be subject to the odour or the appearance of such messes? Why should a person who wants to mow their lawn have to clean up after some one elses animal? For goodness sake smarten up! No one should have to put up with your animals mess! Wilma Poirier Richmond

School doesn’t always have to be a nd struggle. In fact, some kids love it—and not just because of friends or good grades. They love it because they’re NLGV willing to try, and because they feel FRQÀGHQWLQWKHLUDELOLW\WROHDUQ$OONLGV can love school. It just takes Oxford Learning to show them how. m Call today, or visit oxford.learning.com Call today, or visit oxfordlearning.com

letters We are the government Editor: It is interesting how so many people forget that all voting citizens are the government. We elect those that we anticipate can be honest representatives. When the teachers or students talk about the government being dysfunctional they are referring to themselves. Do the students understand that their education is being financed by their parents and others that pay taxes? It can also be suggested that large corporations and our supposed trusted elected representatives believe that it is “easier to apologize than ask for permission.� They are elected to make decisions on our behalf, but the indication is that they are overstepping their mandates as the government (us). We observe it when they approve such as smart meters, increasing taxes, and legislation changes that take our freedoms away. We have to take what is ours back, the meaning of government. Dale T. Pitts Richmond

We really do need to begin to change the way we treat older people Editor: Sunday afternoon I was cycling on Moncton Street when my purse was stolen from the basket on my bike. I had hidden it under a bigger black bag. When I arrived at my bank to put some money in, I noticed my purse was gone! I am closer to 80 years than to 70. I thought I was going to have a heart attack! I was in shock that someone would take my purse in the village of Steveston where I have lived almost the longest I’ve lived anywhere and have tried to love the people of this village. I felt I couldn’t go home and dropped into Hearts, where two earth angels called the police for me. My $300 glasses and cell phone plus all of my credit cards, etc. were gone. Later, one of the earth angels came to our apartment and helped me phone vari-

ous places to cancel cards, etc. I drank some soothing tea and tried to grasp what had happened. I think part of the shock was that it happened in my lovely village. Please take my purse to the post ofďŹ ce if you ďŹ nd it and bring it there. We really do need to begin to change the way we treat older people, or just any people and begin to look out for each other and seek not to hurt or steal from each other. We can all help to make our poor hurting world a better place. Keep in mind we are all brothers and sisters passing through and we’ll have to give an account to a higher power some day. May the Lord bless the one who needed that purse! But please I need my glasses badly. Esther McIlveen Richmond

Canucks make young hockey players’ day by Don Fennell Sports Editor Jim Schuck and his Richmond Rowdymen were the envy of the minor hockey community Sunday. Joined by players from Richmond Minor Hockey’s introductory program, the longtime coach and members of his local Bantam C1 team spent an hour with Vancouver Canucks forwards Alex Burrows and Jannik Hansen at the Richmond Ice Centre. They earned the unique session after parents from the two teams accumulated the most play money at a volunteer appreciation casino night held Saturday at Richmond Auto West Group. Half the proceeds from the evening were donated to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. “In our continued effort to support our local community, we were thrilled

to support the Richmond Minor Hockey League, and donate two of our player appearances to the league,” said Jill Grant of the Auto West Group. “There’s nothing like seeing the excitement on children’s faces when they have the chance to come face-to-face with their heroes.” While Burrows and Hansen spent most of the hour signing autographs and posing for pictures, they tried to make the experience as memorable as possible for the young players. Schuck, who briefly swapped a few ball hockey stories with Burrows, was particularly impressed by the NHLers’ commitment. “While the players are all big fans, the Canucks are mostly an entity,” said Schuck. “But they took the time to speak individually with each kid. My son Adam met (former Canuck) Gino

Before going to Dr. Nelson, my removable partial denture was loose Àtting. My teeth at the front bottom were crooked. I avoided dentists until I was tormented by a toothache. Implants look and perform like your own teeth. I eat and speak better now. Since I have my ability to chew solid food, nuts or fruits with ease, I enjoy eating. People notice my teeth when I smile because they look whiter and straighter than before. Dr. Nelson is the best dentist I have been to . He explains everything in detail, including the procedure of the implants and any other work he is about to undertake. He must be one of the best at giving anaesthetics with minimal or no pain. All his staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The dental hygienists have improved my brushing and Áossing skills. I have had a good education on oral hygiene from them. I am thankful to Dr. Nelson and his staff. It has been a long time since my teeth are of the best condition. I now will rarely need dental treatment, only regular check-ups. ~ K. Okino

He noted that his patient had low ferritin levels, a protein that helps the body absorb iron.

The best and most obvious beneÀt is the enhanced ability to chew and enjoy your food more than you have in years. Dental implants give you back up to 90% of your natural chewing ability again. The painful chewing associated with removable teeth is eliminated because implants put no chewing pressure directly on the gums. The chewing pressures are supported by the implants just like it was with natural tooth roots. Schedule your complimentary consult today!

B.C. cancels generic drug purchase deal by Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. government is terminating its generic drug purchase agreement with provincial pharmacy groups after savings to the Pharmacare program fell short of expectations. Health Minister Mike de Jong said the three-year agreement with the B.C. Pharmacy Association and the Canadian Association of Chain Drug Stores will end April 1, a year early. "We negotiated an agreement on a certain set of expectations, savings to be sure, to Pharmacare and to the purchasers of drugs in B.C., and they have not been realized," de Jong told reporters at the legislature Wednesday. "Of the roughly $69 or $70 million in savings the parties had agreed would be realized over the first two years, we're about $36 million short." De Jong said legislation will be presented soon to end the agreement, in which Pharmacare bought generic equivalent drugs in bulk on behalf of insured patients for a fraction of the cost of the original brand-name medicines. The agreement called for the price of generic drugs to decline to 40 per cent of the original patented medicines by this year. De Jong said generic drug manufacturers have insisted on many more exceptions to the price cap than the health ministry expected, eroding the savings from Pharmacare purchases. Pharmacare buys more than $300 million worth of generic drugs a year, and seniors and other patients buy another $500 million worth directly or through their medical coverage. De Jong declined to comment on B.C. following the lead of Ontario to end the practice of pharmaceutical companies paying rebates to drug stores to stock their brands of generic drugs. The health ministry conducted market tests and found it could buy equivalent drugs from other suppliers for less than those offered under the agreement. It began delisting the more expensive drugs for a year and then decided to end the agreement.

B.C. begins overhaul of senior care by Tom Fletcher

United Way program

Black Press Faced with a sweeping report from the B.C. Ombudsperson on problems and inconsistencies in senior care, Health Minister Mike de Jong has launched an effort to simplify the path navigated by families finding health care for the elderly. Ombudsperson Kim Carter’s new report makes 176 recommendations, including a need to provide clearer information to people seeking a space in a care home or assisted living facility. De Jong said the health ministry will launch a toll-free phone line by June for people to express concerns about the system. A new seniors’ advocate office is to be established at an unspecified later date. De Jong agreed with Carter’s finding that it is too difficult for families to find care spaces, and to determine if they are eligible for public subsidies. He also agreed that the government hasn’t sufficiently analyzed its home care support program, which helps keep 90 per cent of B.C. seniors out of care facilities. The government announced a $15 million budget to expand a pilot program run by the United Way to help people with shopping, gardening, transportation and other non-medical supports so they can stay in their homes. Other measures are aimed at provid-

The province is providing $15 million to the United Way of the Lower Mainland, to expand the availability of non-medical home support services in up to 65 communities across the province over the next three years. This will build on five pilots already underway that offer seniors access to a range of support services, such as trans-

ing palliative care at home for terminally ill patients. Training for doctors and home health providers is to begin in April, and an after-hours palliative care nursing support phone line is also be established this spring. De Jong said priority will be given to keeping elderly couples together when they have different health care needs that force them to be separated. The seniors’ advocate should be able to deal with financial disputes at private care facilities as well as helping seniors find adequate care in the public system, de Jong said. The report and promised overhaul comes as B.C. is beginning to feel the

weight of baby boom retirement. The number of B.C. seniors is approaching 800,000, or 12 per cent of the total population, and that is expected to double by 2029. Life expectancy in B.C. is nearly 82 years on average, and rising. Health care costs rise rapidly in the later years of a person’s life, and the cost is compounded due to longer life expectancy. The health ministry calculates that the average annual health care cost is $2,398 for a person between the ages of 15 and 64. From 65 to 69 the average cost jumps to $6,073, and after age 80 it triples again to $18,906 a year.

portation, housekeeping, home repair, yard maintenance, friendly visiting, and information and referral. “We applaud government for expanding non-medical home support for seniors,” said Michael McKnight, president and CEO, United Way of the Lower Mainland. “The five pilots are making a significant difference to seniors who want to stay in their homes longer...”

lost the opening game 4-3 last Thursday before reeling off 6-2, 9-2 and 7-3 wins over the next three days, is now on to round two. They’ll play the winner of the Delta Ice Hawks-North Delta Devils series which the latter leads three games to one. “I’m happy we won this series and I expect that either (Delta or North Delta) will provide us with a tough series (in the next round),” said Alder, who won 14 of the 19 games he started during the regular season,

posted two shutouts, and recorded a leaguebest 1.68 goals-against average. Alder said it was nice to get the shutout Monday, but “more important we won the game.” “I was hoping to get an opportunity to start in the playoffs, that’s what I’ve been working for all year,” he said. “I try to prepare for every game the same way and I think I’m in a good mindset. But really I’m just trying to stop the shots I need to and give my team a chance to win.”

Miss Meow is a very sweet, curious girl who loves to play. She enjoys using and climbing the scratching posts in the cat room, and though she is very affectionate with people, she would prefer a home with no other animals. Miss Meow was surrendered to the SPCA because she was abandoned by her owners when they moved. This beautiful medium-haired brown tabby would prefer to be kept safely indoors. If you feel this affectionate girl would be a great addition to your home, please visit her today!

> Owl show at Richmond Nature Park

Around Town Amanda Oye

Owls come out for daytime viewing

S

eeing a live owl up close is an experience like no other. The awesomeness of being able to stare directly into their great big eyes was not lost on the 300 people who came out to the Richmond Nature Park’s semi-annual owl show last Sunday. “There is no substitute for a live owl,” said Kristine Bauder, the Richmond Nature Park’s nature park coordinator. “[Visitors] make a connection there that they can’t find anywhere else,” she said. The stars of the show were a barn owl named Alba and a great horned owl named Betty, brought in by OWL, the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society. Along with providing an educational opportunity, one of the main purposes of the event was to give “people the opportunity to see something that they might not otherwise be able to see up close,” said Bauder. “A real animal is something most people only get to experience through TV,” she said. Another component to the show was a table with activities for the kids and information about a study on owls in the Lower Mainland by Environment Canada and Simon Fraser University. Admission to the event was by donation to the Richmond Nature Park Society. Amanda Oye covers the social scene. amanda.oye@telus. net.
