Filming on private property to cost $200 City to also require permits for all film production on public property by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter City council is moving to ban commercial filming on private property— unless a $200 permit is applied for. Filming for commercial purposes on city land already requires a permit, but staff say they can better manage the impact to neighbourhoods if city hall is alerted to all productions. “In practice, the majority of filmmakers have already been applying to the city; however, with the recent increase in filming in Richmond it is important to formalize this,” said Jodie Shebib, the city’s film liaison, in a report. On Monday council endorsed the bylaw change in a 7-0 vote, which is expected to be ratified March 26. In defending the change, Shebib cites the example of Steveston, Richmond’s most popular filming location, where a permit requirement would avoid excessive number of simultaneous film productions. Last year Steveston’s Moncton Street became main street for the ABC TV fantasy drama series Once Upon a Time. The bylaw already bans all film productions on city property—parks, roads, boulevards—unless a permit is secured. But new proposed language is more explicit, applying to all film production—whether it’s for profit or not. Film production is defined in the new bylaw as “photographing, filming and production of a photoplay, film, motion picture, television production, or other recording, and includes preparation activities and dismantling and removal and restoration activities.” The proposed permit application fee

of $200 is double the current fee. For non-commercial use, it’s $50. When contacted by the Review, a B.C. Civil Liberties Association caseworker said the bylaw “sounds problematic.” Last year, 32 movies, commercials and TV shows were shot in Richmond, according to the city.

Author calls Richmond residency ‘refreshing’ Caroline Adderson helping launch a chapbook by ESL writers next Thursday by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter She’s been in Minoru Park for nearly two months—and her stay is coming to a close. But hers is no Occupy or park protest—Caroline Adderson has been serving as writerin-residence to a trio of public Richmond facilities. It’s the first such residency for the city, which landed a big literary fish with Adderson. The Vancouver talent has penned three novels, two collections of short stories and a number of books for young readers—many of which have been noticed with prize nominations. Alberta born and raised, Adderson’s newest novel is The Sky Is Falling, a story set in 1984 about a 19-year-old who rents a room in a shared student house with a mismatched trio of idealists. Throughout February and March, she has offered free literary programs at Richmond Public Library, Minoru Place Activity Centre and Richmond Arts Centre. On Tuesday Adderson conducted manuscript consultations with would-be authors and spent an hour speaking with a seniors amateur writers’ group at Minoru Place. During a break, she told The Richmond Review her position offers plenty of rewards— including a break from routine. “I get to get out of the house,” she said with a smile. “It’s refreshing to speak to real people, and it’s always exciting to find talented people.” Adderson has also led workshops, including a three-week series for English-as-asecond-language writers. Having spent a dozen years as an ESL teacher, Adderson knew great writers are being held back in Canada because of spelling and grammar challenges, so the workshop was born. Its product is a collection of stories known

Leaky South Arm Pool to get an overhaul South Arm Pool was leaking 13,250 litres of water per day last summer— the equivalent of 700 office water cooler jugs—and repairs are now estimated to cost $155,000. Inconsistent water temperature in the 40-year-old outdoor pool prompted staff to investigate last year, and the water loss was discovered. Enough emergency repairs were made to plug 25 per cent of the leak. City council already endorsed $85,000 in repairs as part of the 2012 capital plan, but staff said Monday the bill has doubled. According to a staff report, the pool was emptied earlier this month and staff determined pipes underneath the concrete pool needed replacement. On Monday, council gave its support to the project, work for which must start by April 2 in order to have the pool ready for public use June 9. —Matthew Hoekstra

as a chapbook, which will launch March 29 at 7 p.m. at Brighouse library. The evening will feature readings from each of the 10 writers, who come from around the world and range in age from 20 to 75. Adderson also drew on her experience as a children’s author by organizing a two-part workshop on bookmaking for parents and their young children. First walking the kids through generating a family story, she then gave them homework—transfer their story onto the pages of a blank hardcover book provided.

At the following session, Adderson was joined by illustrator Kathryn Shoemaker, who helped the kids bring their words to life. “When they left they had a self-written and illustrated family story to give to their own children.” This is Adderson’s second residency, the first coming in 2008 for Vancouver Public Library, which brought her on for five months. Besides the rewards of meeting other talented writers, she said, residencies offer writers a rare opportunity—to actually

get paid to write. Noting authors generally go unpaid until published, Adderson said her residency allowed her to spend three-quarters of her time writing, the rest offering service to the community. “(When) you’re at home, just writing, no one pays you for that. It’s all three years later when you actually finish the thing,” she said. “I (gave) 70 hours to Richmond, and the rest were for me to write. That’s fantastic.”

Cocaine, guns and meth seized during raid on local auto detailing shop Two Richmond men arrested by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Nearly 25 kilograms of methamphetamine, six one-kilogram bricks of cocaine, along with guns, ammunition, and a huge quantity of chemical precursors were seized by police from an auto detailing shop at the north end of No. 5 Road earlier this month. A search warrant was executed by investigators at LBG Auto Spa Inc., 320-2088 No. 5 Rd. on March 8, but wasn’t announced by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit until this week. “The removal of a significant amount of dangerous drugs and

three semi-automatic handguns from the street certainly reduces the risk to the public,” said unit spokesperson Sgt. Ghalib Bhayani. Two Richmond men have been arrested, and are facing drugrelated charges. A witness to the seizure said police had a part of the commercial warehouse complex, at the north end of No. 5 Road, taped off with yellow police tape as hazardous material crews working from a HAZCO trailer and truck cleaned up the site. What appeared to be numerous white bags of powder or pills were carefully removed from a white commercial delivery van that had been parked inside the roll-up garage door to the Local Boys Garage Inc. warehouse. As well, numerous 20-litre pails were carried out, the witness said. The strong police presence sur-

prised neighbours as there was nothing unusual about the tenants, who like other businesses had a lot of cars coming and going, and kept hours that garages often do. The witness guessed that perhaps police had followed the white van from the U.S. border or some other location, and then made the arrests on Wednesday, March 7, obtaining a search warrant for the business for the following day. According to police, 24.7 kilograms of methamphetamine, 1,600 litres as well as 227 kilograms of precursor material believed to be used in the production of methamphetamine, were seized. Charged are: Richmond’s Henry Kal-Geat Chia, 26, who is facing 11 counts including possession of restricted weapons, unauthorized possession of firearms,

cocaine trafficking and possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking; and Phu Manh Nguyen, 31, who is charged with one count of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. According to investigators, Chia was allegedly in possession of guns when he’d already been prohibited from possessing any firearms at all. Chia was already facing other drug-related charges from May 2010. He was charged with production of a controlled substance, possession for the purpose of trafficking and fraudulently consuming electricity or gas. Chia was sentenced to a conditional sentence of two years less a day, 18 months probation, and received a 10-year firearms ban in 2007 for breaking and entering and assault with a weapon.

Couple wins court battle after minivan held hostage Adjudicator rules All-Tech not entitled to seize vehicle by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A local couple has won a court battle against Richmond’s All-Tech Transmissions after the company held their minivan hostage following a “free inspection” that ended with the transmission removed, and a bill the couple claims continued to grow. Amir Urson and his wife Hakkim filed the action in Richmond provincial court after they brought their 2003 Ford Windstar minivan in because of transmission trouble. After bringing the family vehicle in to a Ford dealership, and receiving three repair options ranging from $4,600 for a new transmission to $1,925 for a used transmission, they turned to All-Tech for a second opinion. “All of these quotes were higher than the claimant and his wife thought they could afford,” the court ruling said. The Richmond couple then contacted Rob Litke, manager at All-Tech. Amir Urson testified that Litke told them that a dealer’s price would always be higher than the defendant’s price because repairing transmissions was his core business. “Mr. Litke convinced the claimant to bring his vehicle in to the defendant’s shop and the defendant would do a free inspection and provide them with a repair quote,” adjudicator Marina Pratchett wrote. After bringing in their vehicle, the couple neither asked for, or were handed, a written work authorization. Litke then contacted the couple and told them that a diagnostic test showed the problems with the vehicle, and that he would have to take a closer look in order to give a repair quote, and that this further examination would have to be charged for. The couple agreed, and claims they were told it would take four hours of work, and were quoted $80 per hour. Litke claims he quoted them the hourly rate of $108.88. The couple was then told the transmission would cost $3,000 to repair, an

amount higher than the lowest quote received from the dealership, so they decided not to have the repair done by AllTech. They then arranged to pick up their vehicle on Sept. 20, 2011, prepared to pay $320 plus taxes. “However, she stated that when she arrived, the defendant refused to release the vehicle telling her she would now have to pay $600,” Pratchett wrote. “Ms. Hakkim said that she was shocked at this increase, but having three children she needed the vehicle urgently and agreed to pay it at which point according to Ms. Hakkim, Mr. Litke then advised that the amount would be higher, now $1,000 or more but was not definitive and he would not allow her or the towing company to remove the vehicle and would not allow Ms. Hakkim to remove any personal effects from the vehicle. Her personal effects included car seats for her infant children which Mr. Litke was refusing to relinquish.” Litke testified that the

vehicle couldn’t be towed because the wheels had been removed, though Hakkim claimed that wasn’t true as when she went into the vehicle, it had wheels on it. “Mr. Litke testified that there was work to be done to put the vehicle back together, even without installing the transmission and he wanted an authorization for that work and then to be paid for that work before he would release the vehicle.” Hakkim Urson claimed that Litke was threatening to her, so she went to the Richmond RCMP detachment, and was accompanied upon her return by an RCMP officer who required Litke to allow her to take possession of her personal effects as well as the licence plate. “The defendant continued to stand behind its position that it was entitled to maintain possession of the vehicle and its refusal to release it. The vehicle has never been returned to the claimant,” Pratchett wrote. Pratchett noted that at no time did Litke present the

Ursons with an account for services rendered, or any accounting and verification of the time it spent on the work, or the cost to reassemble the transmission. Pratchett ruled that Litke was not entitled to assert a repairer’s lien on the vehicle or to maintain possession of it. “The defendant had failed to provide an invoice for payment to the claimant, based on time spent. Further it was not entitled to charge for reassembly,” Pratchett ruled. “The defendant knew that if the repair estimate was higher than they could afford, the claimant would not be authorizing the work to be done.” The court ordered AllTech to pay the couple $2,275, as well as courtordered interest, and costs of $176. “The conduct of the defendant and the failure or refusal to release the vehicle in the face of the claimant’s willingness to pay constituted a wrongful conversion of the vehicle by the defendant,” Pratchett wrote.

REVIEW

Foreshore lands were owned by the Grauer family by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Mayor Malcolm Brodie formally announced yesterday the city’s purchase of 51.4 hectares (127 acres) of Sturgeon Banks. Ducks Unlimited Canada regional director Les Bogdan joined Brodie at a press conference held on West Dyke Thursday afternoon. The Lulu Island foreshore land, nearly the size of the Garden City lands, is being designated as a conservation site. The city made the deal in partnership with Ducks Unlimited for a total cost of $3,050,000 in cash and donation receipts under the federal Ecological Gifts Program. Under terms of the agreement, Richmond will own twothirds of the land—located just outside the West Dyke between Blundell Road and Westminster Highway— while Ducks Unlimited Canada will own one-third. The land purchase protects the largest piece of privately-held land in Sturgeon banks, according to the city. It was previously owned by the Grauer family. At least 47 species of shorebirds and significant populations of great blue herons, swans, snow geese and ducks feed in Sturgeon Banks, according to the B.C. Ministry of Environment.

Car levy, new carbon tax for TransLink concerns business B.C. Chamber president prefers regional tolling by Jeff Nagel Black Press Business leaders are worried proposals to raise more money for TransLink by charging an annual vehicle fee or a new carbon tax in Metro Vancouver may harm the economy. B.C. Chamber of Commerce president John Winter said he thinks the regional mayors’ council should abandon the two options and accept higher property taxes for now while they pursue longer-term funding mechanisms for TransLink. “There are far more minuses than pluses, particularly with the carbon tax and vehicle levy,” he said. Metro Vancouver mayors want the province to enable the new funding sources to raise an extra $30 million —committed last year to ensure the Evergreen Line proceeds—that will otherwise be added to property taxes starting in 2013. They’re also pushing for the provincial government to allow road pricing, which could extend tolls more consistently across the region as a long-term revenue source to build new rapid transit lines on Vancouver’s Broadway corridor to the University of B.C. and through Surrey to Langley and White Rock. Winter said a new regional carbon tax would hit key industries in Metro Vancouver, particularly cement plants and the greenhouse industry. “They can’t really change their carbon footprint,” he

said. “That’s quite inequitable and it’s a huge part of the economy.” The cost of goods and services in the region could also be forced up, he said. Winter said a vehicle levy gives people no way to avoid paying if they own a car, so there is no daily incentive to conserve or try transit, cycling or walking. The existing gas tax of 15¢ a litre for TransLink (rising to 17¢ April 1) at least allows motorists to drive less to reduce their fuel bill, but he acknowledged the gas tax differential in Metro also sends many drivers out of the region to refuel and contributes to cross-border shopping. Winter said Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts’ call for more modest region-wide tolling makes more sense than the vehicle levy, particularly with the Port Mann Bridge about to be tolled along with the Golden Ears Bridge. “If driving across Burrard Inlet becomes subject to some sort of toll, so be it,” Winter said. “It strikes me as being far more equitable.” The B.C. Chamber remains on record as supporting introduction of a road management system in the region—potentially similar to mayors’ calls for road pricing—to raise money while controlling congestion and traffic flows. Winter predicted the provincial government will be forced to alter its tolling policy and open up tolling of existing bridges and roads, something Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom maintains isn’t under consideration.

Teachers will be back at work The B.C. Teachers’ Federation is going back to court to challenge the legislation that has put an end to its latest strike action, but teachers will be back on the job once spring break is over.

n a digital age where virtually everyone with a smartphone or digital camera is a potential filmmaker, and every wannabe Martin Scorsese is potentially only an App and YouTube account away from becoming famous, the city’s latest proposed bylaw is outdated, obtrusive and completely unnecessary even before the ink’s had a chance to dry. In a nutshell, and in case you haven’t read today’s front page, Big Brother— er, that is, City Hall—wants to outlaw filming of both a commercial and non-commercial nature, on public property unless you have a permit. That’s right, those family videos you’d been planning to take at the park could technically become illegal in the very near future. Unless of course you pay between $50 and $200 for what you previously thought was your right. Council has already endorsed the proposal to this point. Some have said that city hall is overstaffed. Perhaps this proposed bylaw— which infringes upon the rights of the owners of these public lands (taxpayers) to use them for their own enjoyment—is further evidence of that. At first blush, it doesn’t

pass the smell test. And arguably, it sure has the appearances of a cash grab. Inside a private residence, a backyard, a private business—anything captured on film that has the potential to turn a profit for someone—would

require a permit. And in the every-transforming YouTube era, where people are making money every day by generating views, a family video with a big enough “Wow” factor could be the equivalent of hitting the lottery. All other camera work

done on city land that isn’t for-profit—home movies, your uncle’s retirement party—would also require an application, albeit the fee is less, at $50. And the city’s property is extensive: parks, roads, sidewalks, civic facilities and boulevards.

Maybe this time at city hall could have been better spent on more important matters. At the same time, perhaps there aren’t any other important matters that need dealing with, and these city staff positions could be eliminated.

Like spring, holidays need fresh look

pring is officially here although you wouldn’t know it from the snow flurries. The daffodils are still struggling to open and we still have frost in the mornings. Still, the sure signs of spring are yet to come.

As a parent of a child in public school, I know it’s

spring when my kids start bringing home crafts and assignments that are all Easter related. I know it’s really bad timing for me to take a look at what’s happening in schools—my heart is with teachers in their fight for a just education system. However, learning goes on. I took a big hit two years ago when I asked “to what purpose do we still celebrate Christmas in schools?” and I’m doing it again with Easter. If public schools are supposed to be for everyone, why do Christian holidays still play such a huge role? I debate this all the time with my mother, a retired public school teacher, who taught in Richmond for over 35 years. She’s constantly sending my kids home with bunny stickers and egg colouring sheets at this time of the year. When I ask

how she, a Muslim, gets my children, who are also Muslim, to do Easter-related crafts her reply is constant. “There’s nothing religious about these things.” And there is the crux of the problem. Yes, our schools have taken out the religion from Easter and from Christmas but they’ve hung on to, in my opinion, the commercial aspects of the holidays. I have yet to have someone explain to me the connection between bunnies and this upcoming holiday. If you take the religion out of the holiday, what do you have left? The commercialization of that holiday. And that’s what bothers me about the way our schools promote Easter. Instead of talking about renewal and rebirth, we have chocolate eggs nestled in fake grass. Spring is not just an important time of the

year for Christians. In my community, as well as in the Persian community, we celebrate Navroz on March 21. It’s a New Year celebration when families eat together. One of the symbols of the holiday is sprouting wheatgrass. A few weeks ago, I was invited to the Jewish Day School’s celebration of Tu Bishvat, the “New Year of the Trees.” Here is yet another community that celebrates the upcoming spring and has a wonderful symbol of trees. To celebrate this year’s occasion, the Jewish Day School has started a garden project to help teach all the students how to grow food. I know Easter is more than just chocolate and bunnies. The egg as a symbol of birth and renewal is a beautiful teaching tool, as are wheatgrass and trees. Other religions in our community

If you take the religion out of the holiday, what do you have left? The commercialization of that holiday.

have equally beautiful symbols that are not drawn upon by our education system. I’d love to see them get equal airtime, especially since they all teach the same message. Spring is coming, renew your hope, and lets celebrate together.

that municipality. Richmond Council is not considering a cemetery so I assume the land commitment is not too large but there is still a matter of zoning and the matter of our ancestors remains kept in perpetuity and the long-term cost. If the city decides to establish, own and operate this Memorial Garden, they must be aware this is a commitment forever. One suspects Vancouver council would love to use the Mountain View lands for another purpose. The City should zone a suitable piece of land, perhaps along the No. 5 Road “Highway to Heaven,� and allow a private operator to establish this memorial garden. R. Pekarek Richmond

Early readers make better learners

It’s time to consider term limits for civic politicians Editor: It may be time to consider term limits for mayors and councillors in British Columbia. Citizens who run for elected ofďŹ ce come from varied backgrounds, usually with no special qualiďŹ cations to run a municipality other than they care about some issue of interest to the community. They enter into public service with a vision and enthusiasm and if their colleagues agree with their vision, they may even be able to implement some change for the better. Eventually comes the reality of having achieved their goal...or not. Either way, by the end of three years and 14 days, they invariably seem to run out of ideas. Unfortunately for the public, that puts our typical councillor two weeks into a second term. As a good citizen, they feel they should do something for their pay. Something big like spending $45 million dollars on a destination museum with an unknown operating budget. The Richmond Olympic Oval with its $5.5-million dollar subsidy skated by without a hitch and there doesn’t appear to be any push-back against the multimillion dollar capital budget for the planned Steveston tram shed. No one lost their job or their seat on council for the Garden City lands debacle. Maybe no one will notice the White Elephant (which is what this museum will be) on the waterfront near the Phoenix Net Loft. The mayor and a few councillors will get to cut a ribbon and the taxpayers get to pay the bill. If this passes council, I pray they have the courtesy to offer the residents a vote and not just another “hearing.â€? Another idea which deserves a public vote is the proposed memorial garden. Nothing against people dying and being remembered at a memorial facility in Richmond. The issue is city ownership. Most cemeteries, crematoriums, and mausoleums in the lower Mainland are owned by religious organizations or corporations. The City of Vancouver owns Mountain View Cemetery and the City of Surrey owns three cemeteries out of the eleven in

Re: “Port’s hunger for farmland a ‘declaration of war,’� Feb. 1 Good sense tells us that one cannot protect every square foot of farmland for ever. It would be sheer utopia as there will always be situations where some farmland will have to be sacrificed for the common good. However, those who think that farmland and the British Columbia Agricultural Land Reserve are of no economic importance have not paid attention to what is happening in many countries: farmland is

disappearing faster than we think. The Port Metro Vancouver CEO describing the ALR as “emotionally, but not economically important to the regionâ€? seems to ignore some salient facts. Here are a few: •In 1992, the Soil Conservation Service, located in Washington, D.C., published the following statistics: Of its 400 million acres of crop lands, the United States of America was losing a minimum of 1.7 million acres every year.

•At this rate, the United States would lose all of its crop lands in

Inappropriate emergency parking

Editor: Re: City proposed pay parking in Steveston. I’m shaking my head in confusion. Once learning about the proposed parking charges to patrons who park in Steveston Village, I was stunned. The city is going to lengths to help business owners, whom are struggling through these very challenging economic times and yet are proposing to charge for parking? Charging for parking will be like a “death sentence� to the already struggling owners. There is a serious lack of family friendly places where parking is free. Steveston must remain a free and family friendly neighborhood. Ellen Smith Richmond

about 235 years. This is the kind of legacy that we are leaving to our grandchildren. The ALR and the preservation of farmland are most important for our survival. It cannot be left to the whims and power of some members of any government. The words “declaration of war� on farmland may be very strong, but let us not forget this: No farmland equals no food.

Editor: I was assisting a disabled person into emergency at Richmond Hospital. I took the only available parking to hurry the (vomiting) patient in. I was needed at the patient’s side throughout. As events escalated we needed the excellent services of the RCMP. I wish to commend all the ofďŹ cers involved. At the same time I did not appreciate the $80 parking ticket to a private company when I came out. It is not possible in an emergency to pick the right spot to park. Ken Adams Richmond

Court certiďŹ es class-action lawsuit against Denny’s Dozens of workers recruited from the Philippines to work weren’t compensated, case claims by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The B.C. Supreme Court this week certiďŹ ed a $10 million class-action lawsuit involving foreign workers hired as cooks and servers at Lower Mainland Denny’s restaurants, but who didn’t get what they were contractually promised. Lawyer Christopher Foy said

there are 70 to 75 members in the class, who are each claiming between $10,000 and $20,000 in damages. Some of the workers were living in Richmond at the time of the allegations, and all were recruited from the Philippines, lured by contracts promising airfare, wages, hours of work, overtime and other working conditions. The lawsuit claims the restaurant’s parent company, Northland Properties Corporation and Dencan Restaurants Inc., failed to pay overtime or reimburse workers for travel and recruitment costs. Foy is hopeful that the trial could begin next year, and said the class will also be requesting punitive damages against Denny’s. He referred to a previous case in which a Canadian employer did not

properly treat a temporary foreign worker, and was ďŹ ned $175,000 in damages. Class members in B.C. are automatically part of the lawsuit, but have the option to opt out and pursue an individual action against the defendants. Temporary foreign workres who have left Denny’s and no longer reside in B.C. have the option to opt in, Foy said. In at least one case, a foreign worker was required to pay a Vancouver-based recruiting company, International Caregiver Employment Agency, $3,000. In April of last year, Denny’s was ďŹ ned for illegally ďŹ ring a temporary foreign worker, and then in June of last year, was ďŹ ned for failing to pay temporary workers and other workers overtime wages.

Summer Night Market gets committee approval The city’s planning committee on Tuesday gave its endorsement to a second night market for Richmond. Now it will be up to city council on Monday whether to green light Lions Communications CEO Paul Cheung’s Summer Night Market at its location behind Home Depot, at 12631 Vulcan Way. With council’s OK on Monday, the event will then go to a public hearing in April where ďŹ nal approval could be given. Paul Cheung is seeking a three-year permit for the market, and said in a press release this week that he’s secured a six-year lease for the property.

“I appreciate the past support by city council, sponsors, vendors and visitors which gave our Summer Night Market the recognition and distinction as the top night market in the world in 2011.� Cheung said his site will offer unlimited free street parking, easy access by transit and convenient vehicle accessibility through Sweden Way, No. 5 and River Road. On Monday, following a public hearing, Target Event Productions’ Raymond Cheung—no relation to Paul— was granted a three-year permit to operate at a new location at the north end of No. 3 Road.

Black Press Federal and provincial ministers signed a new 20year RCMP contract today, ushering in what B.C. cities hope will be a new relationship with the Mounties and much better control over spiraling police costs. City councils, which got their first look at the full text last week, have until the end of April to ratify the agreement themselves. Any city that doesn’t like it can terminate their RCMP service and form a municipal police force or partner with an existing one. Cities will also get a twoyear opt out option going forward and a review of the

contract is promised every five years, allowing it to be re-opened. “We are creating far more transparency and accountability in policing,” B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said at a signing ceremony with federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews at the Surrey detachment, the country’s largest. “For the first time we will have the ability to question costs, to look at breakdowns of costs, to say do we really need to have those kinds of things take place in British Columbia.” Toews said it’s also in Ottawa’s interest to rein in costs. Officials say the deal finally puts cities in better position to control costs and plan for them, rather than simply paying whatever bills are sent to them. “This is a major shift from what we had before,” said Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, the civic observer in the talks. Many cities have seen

their RCMP costs – usually the biggest item in a municipal budget – climb six to seven per cent each year. That’s not as severe as some unionized municipal forces, where costs have climbed by up to 14 per cent a year in some cases. But municipalities have a wary eye on whether Mounties form a union, a scenario that would sharply drive up costs. At the heart of the deal is a new B.C. local government contract management committee with 10 reps from cities who are promised much more hands-on control of spending changes, instead of just an advisory role. It’s still unclear, however, whether cities can ultimately refuse to pay costs they object to – Fassbender said the hope is RCMP decisions will be shaped by civic input well before that point. They’ll also be privy to the RCMP’s five-year financial plans so cities can better

prepare for cost changes. Previously, cities had no say on national programs, they were given only a oneyear planning horizon on costs, and had no ability to review programs, detachment administration levels or challenge service delivery methods. Improvements in the deal include an agreement that Ottawa will cover 30 per cent of the costs of integrated policing teams such as the gang task force and IHIT, up from 10 per cent now. No change was made in the overall cost-sharing formula, which makes large cities over 15,000 population pay 90 per cent of costs, while smaller cities shoulder 70 per cent. That works out to about $468 million per year for large cities, who host nearly 3,000 officers, while smaller cities pay about $54 million. The estimated increase for 2012/13 is around 0.7 per cent or $2.35 million for larger cities and 1.7 per cent or $5.7 million for the province, although Victoria expects its share may tick higher in future years. B.C. last fall threatened to withdraw from the RCMP and start its own provincial force after the federal government issued an ultimatum to sign the contract or lose the Mounties in 2014. SFU criminologist Rob Gordon said Bond’s claim B.C. was pursuing a “plan B” was likely nothing but “sabre-rattling.” But he contends the province should still look at creating regional police forces for Metro Vancouver and Greater Victoria to end a “patchwork” of RCMP and municipal police jurisdictions. “Those are natural areas for amalgamation of services and the creation of cost-effective policing,” Gordon said. Bond said B.C. continues to pursue more integrated services, but does not rule out regionalization. “We’re happy to have a discussion about that,” she said. “But it has to be led by locally elected officials. There’s a divided view about how that should be approached.” Officials also noted B.C. is launching a new independent investigation office, which promises better civilian oversight of RCMP officers involved in serious incidents.

Elderly drivers offered road test option by Tom Fletcher Black Press Drivers more than 80 years old who fail a computerized test of their mental ability will now be offered a road test before they have to surrender their licences. Attorney General Shirley Bond announced the road test option Monday after complaints from people who lost their driving privileges based on a computer test called DriveABLE. Some elderly people with little computer experience found the touch-screen tests of cognitive ability to be unfamiliar and unfair way to test them. The DriveABLE test has is administered on referral from doctors who detect cognitive impairment in patients that may affect their

driving. Bond said those who failed the on-screen test in the past six months will be offered a free road test, using a test car with dual brakes. Those who failed more than six months ago have to see their doctor before being reassessed. NDP public safety critic Kathy Corrigan was surprised to hear that the DriveABLE program is now being “peer reviewed,� a step that she said the government should have taken before the service was contracted for B.C. Corrigan said the road test option is a step in the right direction, but details of that haven’t been made public yet. Bond also announced that a new DriveABLE assessment centre will be opened in Cranbrook, making 18 locations in B.C. A new mobile ser-

vice is also in the works, so people in rural areas don’t have to travel as far to be tested. The DriveABLE test uses a terminal with a touch screen to measure mental abilities. In the ďŹ rst stage, the driver holds down a button until a shape appears on either the left of right side of the screen. The subject has to release the button and touch the shape as quickly as possible, to test reaction time and accuracy of movement. Another stage tests ability to notice changes at the edge of the ďŹ eld of vision, simulating pedestrians and trafďŹ c signs. The test subject must make a decision about a word in the centre of the screen, and also report the location of a target that appears at the same time in a different area of the screen.

Gateway announces its 2012-13 theatre season Outgoing artistic and executive director Simon Johnston will have one of his own plays produced on Gateway Theatre’s MainStage for the 2012-2013 season. Gateway announced this week its lineup of plays for next season, which will be overseen by new artistic director Jovanni Sy. It will mark the company’s 28th year of theatre in Minoru Park. Johnston’s play Sisters will debut Jan. 31. Inspired by Anton Chekov’s Three Sisters, the play is set in 1939 and follows the lives of two Russian sisters who live in a Chinese garrison town where their deceased father used to train Nationalist Chinese troops. As they struggle to make ends meet and maintain the illusion of their former privileged lives, their Chinese sister-in-law takes over the house, one room at a time. Three other plays will be brought to the MainStage, and two more to Studio B. •Sylvia by A.R. Gurney (MainStage, Oct. 11-27): Greg is having an affair and his wife Kate can’t compete. Her husband has already moved the other woman into their apartment, a oozy

named Sylvia. In this romantic comedy-with-a-twist, Sylvia is a stray labradoodle that becomes a major bone of contention with a couple managing midlife. •Winners and Losers by Marcus Youssef and James Long (Studio B, Nov. 22-Dec. 1): Marcus and James sit at a table playing Winners and Losers. They name people, places or things—Tom Cruise, microwave ovens, their fathers—and debate whether they are winners or losers. In pursuit of victory, they turn the game on each other, ruthlessly dissecting intimate details of their own lives. •Fiddler on the Roof by Joseph Stein, music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick (MainStage, Dec. 12-31): David Adams plays Tevye, a humble Russian milkman and family patriarch. Through both comic and bittersweet moments, Tevye realizes his daughters must soon begin traditions of their own. The Broadway musical includes songs “If I Were A Rich Man,â€? “Sunrise, Sunset,â€? “Matchmakerâ€? and “Traditionâ€? to tell a timeless story of family values and freedom.

•Sisters by Simon Johnston (Mainstage, Jan. 31-Feb. 16, 2012): World premiere, directed by Sarah Rodgers. •Harvest by Ken Cameron (Studio B, March 7-16): Harvest is based on the real-life experience of the playwright’s parents, who moved from their farm into the city and rented their farmhouse to a couple that used it to grow marijuana. Faced with extensive damage, the couple is turned away by their insurance company and must confront the possibility of ďŹ nancial ruin. As they wait, they realize their misfortune has helped them rediscover their love. •Molière’s Don Juan (MainStage, April 11-27): A new adaptation by Blackbird Theatre Heretic, Don Juan is a beguiling rogue and prodigious womanizer who rejects conventional morality, defying God, Heaven and Hell. His servant is appalled by his master’s behaviour; their arguments are a feast of wit. Everyone wants to reform the Don, but two sword ďŹ ghts and three amorous adventures later, it seems his rebel spirit will carry him through in the end. But will it?

Vince Miele will usher in a local celebration of the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay this spring, the city has announced. Miele, board chair of Richmond Centre for Disability, will be the final community participant for Richmond on Sunday, May 20. He’ll advance the relay to the Richmond Olympic Oval plaza at 4 p.m. for a celebration marking the relay’s 12,000-kilometre journey, which ends the following day in Vancouver. The relay began in Newfoundland and Labrador Aug. 24, 2011, retracing the Canadian leg of the original Man in Motion World Tour. Over 7,000 people are participating in the relay. Rick Hansen, who has been appearing in stops along the route, is expected to attend the event in Richmond—where he lives. Hansen’s original Man in Motion Tour raised $26 million for spinal cord research, created awareness of issues people with disabilities face and inspired generations of Canadians. —by Matthew Hoekstra

The half marathon a popular racing distance for women

A Runner’s Mind Christine Blanchette

S

ince 2003 the half marathon participation boom has dominated the Canadian running scene. Every year more health-conscious, former couch potatoes are turning to running for ďŹ tness sake. But you may be surprised to learn the ďŹ nisher medal most coveted by novice and seasoned runner alike is for the half marathon, rather than the sexier and more famous 42.195-km full marathon. The numbers don’t lie. Participation for half marathons at events that also offer full marathons is often twice as high. And the numbers for half marathon only events are signiďŹ cantly higher than most marathon attendance ďŹ gures. For example, at last year’s BMO Vancouver Marathon event, which included full and half marathon races, the full marathon attracted 3,299 participants. The gender breakdown was 1,830 males and 1,399 females. The half marathon drew, however, a comparatively whopping 6,532 participants, with 4,164 women dominating attendance, compared to 2,368 men. It’s the same story in Toronto. At last year’s Scotia Bank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, out of 3,948 for the ‘Big M,’ included 2,550 males dominating the ďŹ eld of 1,398 females. The half marathon was a different story with 8,841 taking part, including 5,093 women dwarďŹ ng 3,748 males. The trend is similar in Quebec, with one notable exception. At the last event (2010) to include both the full and half marathon, 769 males ran the full

Quebec City marathon, with 205 females participating. The half marathon drew 1,361 males and 984 females, bucking the trend of female dominated half marathons. Nonetheless, the total of 2,355 for the half shows that Canadians generally prefer that distance. The half marathon has gained momentum and prestige since American, Ryan Hall became the ďŹ rst U.S. runner to break one hour barrier in the half (59.43) in 2007 Houston, Texas. According to a Canadian Running Magazine 2010 survey, the half marathon distance is made up of more than 60 per cent women. Now for the question: Why? As one might surmise, there is more than one answer. While the half marathon is attainable for many, the marathon requires too much training, too much time on the course and

results in too much pain for others. The recovery period for a marathon is several weeks to a month while recovery from the half can occur in a week or less. This means runners of the half are more able to do more events. Depending on your level, most marathoners participate in only one or two big races a year. Back in my heydays of running marathons I sometimes chose the half distance because of lack of training for the full. I remember thinking I’m “just� running the half tomorrow, but I was wrong. With still intense training, discipline and mental preparation required, no one ‘just’ runs a half. For the beginner it’s recommended to run at least one half marathon three months before embarking on the big one, should that be your goal. The reward will be

crossing the ďŹ nish line knowing that you’ve made a signiďŹ cant accomplishment‌.getting that prized ďŹ nisher medal. There is no shortage of half marathons to choose from, such as BMO’s Sunshine Coast April Fool’s Run which is actually taking place on Sunday, April 1 (no joke)! It is your chance to visit the Sunshine Coast for the ďŹ rst time and run a scenic route from Gibsons to Sechelt. This popular course is for all levels of abilities and is the place to be whether you are participating, volunteering or being a spectator. This will be their 35th anniversary celebration and will include a relay, being part of the Lower Mainland Road Race Series.

Portrait Homes named top builder in Canada

Local builder wins AVID Award Portrait Homes has long had a reputation for building amazing homes and delivering great value. They were recently the recipients of multiple Georgie Awards from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia, including two Customer Choice awards. Now they are being honoured again with the Avid Diamond Award for the Best Customer Experience in Canada. “This is truly an outstanding achievement and honour for Portrait Homes to be given this award,” says Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Troy Steine. “It’s been made possible by the unwavering dedication and

commitment from each and every one of the Portrait Homes team.” The annual Avid Awards honour the best builders across Canada for providing great customer service, and base their awards on feedback from homeowners. This year, over 97 per cent of Portrait home buyers said they would recommend the company. Steine is extremely proud of this statistic. “Providing an outstanding customer experience is the strength that allows Portrait Homes to flourish in a competitive market and positions us as the builder of choice in today’s real estate market,” he says.

The bathrooms are luxurious, with thick granite countertops, polished chrome or satin nickel bath fixtures and hardware and mosaic ceramic tile surounds on the bath and shower. The high-quality laminate flooring featured throughout the main floor is durable and ready to take the pounding of any number of feet, while the thick carpeting on the upper floor is a cozy detail that you’ll love to sink your feet into in the morning. Another

thoughtful detail is the built-in wire closet shelving, so you’ll easily be able to unpack as soon as you get your keys. A wide range of demographics have been interested in South Arm Gardens, Lawson says. Buyers will be able to take possession of their new homes in late April or early May. Homes at South Arm Gardens start at $499,000. For more information check out www.southarmgardens.com or call 604-998-4526.

‘A location that can’t be beat’

Richmond welcoming South Arm Gardens by Kerry Vital

The South Arm neighbourhood of Richmond is full of parks, shops and recreation, so it should be no surprise that the area is proud to welcome its newest development, South Arm Gardens. Built by the Kraftsmen Group of Companies and with 15 townhomes in the development, South Arm Gardens has the feel of an exclusive little community. “These are wonderful homes at a terrific value and in a location that can’t be beat,” says Sean Lawson, president of Steveston Real Estate. “South Arm Gardens offers an affordable way to get into the market in one of Richmond’s most sought-after neighbourhoods.” Seven different floorplans and three different designer-selected colour schemes give you plenty of options for finding the home that fits you best, and with the private fenced yards that are included with every home and beautiful landscaping, your outdoor space will make an amazing first impression. Inside, the nine-foot ceilings on the main level and oversized windows contribute to the overriding sense of space, no matter what room you’re in. Those oversized windows allow plenty of natural light to shine in, so your home will never feel dark even in the worst weather. Many of the homes are built with an open-plan layout that is perfect for entertaining, and the convenient kitchen islands in most

plans provide extra storage and counter space. Crown moulding throughout is one of the little details that make these homes so amazing, along with large 5 1/4-inch baseboards on the main floor and 4 1/4-inch baseboards on the upper floors. The kitchens showcase chefinspired touches, such as stainlesssteel appliances and custom-crafted cabinets complemented by natural granite countertops. Adjustable overhead halogen track lighting and ceiling pot lights ensure you have the perfect amount of light while prepping and cooking, and a hand-set ceramic tile backsplash lends a touch of sophisticated elegance to the room.

These are wonderful homes at a terrific value,” says Sean Lawson, president of Steveston Real Estate.

Lambert steps down as Sockeyes’ coach Five-season run was extraordinary by Don Fennell Sports Editor After five seasons at the helm, Judd Lambert is stepping down from his coaching perch with the Richmond Sockeyes. “It’s been fun, but five years is enough,” he said. Though the decision is only now being unveiled, Lambert indicated it was made before the start of the 2011-12 Pacific International Junior Hockey League season. “I think the organization is proud of what’s gone on in recent years and I expect they’ll maintain the philosophies,” he said. The move to remove himself from the day-to-day chores as head coach will afford Lambert more time to spend with his young family. As a local youth, Lambert’s spectacular goaltending backstopped the Sockeyes to the 1992 Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial championship. The following season he joined the BC Hockey League’s Chilliwack Chiefs from which he was drafted in the ninth round (221st overall) by the New Jersey Devils in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft and subsequently accepted a scholarship to Colorado College where he starred for the Tigers, leading them to within a goal of the 1996 NCAA Division 1 men’s hockey title. After playing pro in both the New Jersey and Boston Bruins’ organizations, Lambert retired to coaching and returned to his hometown roots

Don Fennell photo Judd Lambert’s five-year record as head coach of the Richmond Sockeyes featured two Pacific International Junior Hockey League playoff titles, a provincial title, and a Canadian championship.

Team’s former goalie leaves legacy of consistency and success From Page 32

Lambert had an immediately positive influence, guiding the Sockeyes to within a point of the Abbotsford Pilots for the PIJHL regular-season pennant in 2007-08. The following season, 200809, was magical. Not only did Lambert guide the Sockeyes to the league’s regular-season and playoff titles, but also to B.C. (Cyclone Taylor) and Canadian

(Keystone Cup) Junior B championships. The on-ice success continued in each of the next three seasons, as Richmond—despite losing many of its players to graduation—placed second overall in the PIJHL in 2009-10, five points back of the North Delta Devils. They finished atop the league in both 2010-11 and 2011-12, sweeping the Abbotsford Pilots in four games for the 2011

playoff title. Richmond l o s t t h e justconcluded 2012 LAMBERT playoff semifinal to the Delta Ice Hawks in six games. All told, under Lambert’s guidance, the Sockeyes won 181 regu-

lar season games, lost only 37 in regulation and 16 in overtime. His playoff record was equally impressive: 42 wins, 12 regulation losses and five overtime losses. Lambert said he anticipated the Sockeyes’ executive team, including general manager Richard Petrowsky, would be meeting “in the next little while” to begin considering head coaching candidates.

The Lambert years •The 2011-12 Richmond Sockeyes won 37 of 44 regularseason games, outscoring their opponents 231-69. They lost a PIJHL semifinal playoff in six games to Delta. •The 2010-11 Sockeyes were a league-best 37-5-0-4

in the regular season and swept Abbotsford in four games for the playoff title. •The 2009-10 Sockeyes (33-9-0-6) were five points back of North Delta for the best record in the regular season, and lost to Delta in a five-game semifinal playoff. • The 2008-09 Sockeyes (39-8-0-1) were regular-season

champions, went 12-0-01 in the playoffs—defeating Abbotsford in the final in five games, then won the B.C. Cyclone Taylor Cup and Keystone Cup Canadian championship. •The 2007-08 Sockeyes (35-8-0-5) finished a point back of Abbotsford for the regular-season title and lost a seven-game playoff to Grandview Steelers.

Tournament time

The Canadian Short Track Championship for junior A and B skaters and neo-seniors goes Friday to Sunday at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

The event serves as both an entry to national level competitions and as a gateway to national development team programs.

Islanders, Subway to meet Friday for Challenge Cup Match for senior soccer’s biggest prize kicks off at 9 p.m. at Minoru by Don Fennell Sports Editor The biggest match on the Richmond Senior Soccer Association calendar kicks off Friday at Minoru Park. The Islanders FC and Subway FC will meet in the Challenge Cup Final at 9 p.m. It’s the first time either team has made it to the title game, having emerged from a field of the five Premier Division teams and the top six First Division sides. (Islanders (7-9-4) placed third in the Premier Division and Subway (7-8-3) fifth in the 10-team First Division during the regular season). Subscribing to a long-held belief in sport that defence wins cham-

pionshjips, the teams have played strong defensively in the tournament having each surrendered only one goal. “It will be interesting to see how Subway responds to Matteo Serka (the Islanders’ and Premier Division’s top goal scorer this season with 20),” said RSSA president Steve Valenzuela, who’ll present the league’s oldest trophy—which dates back to 1961—to the winning team. Under the tutelage of manager Kam Dhanda, Subway has outscored its opponents 8-1 in the tournament thus far. Ian Scott, whose 12 goals were third highest in the First Division this season, is the player to watch offensively.

Founded in 1994 as a Second Division side, the Islanders are the RSSL’s longest standing team. Managed by Alex Ventouras, they placed second in their division in 1997-98 to earn promotion to the First Division. After several years of mid-table finishes, they won the First Division in 2003-04 earning promotion to the Premier Division where they remained until being relegated in 2007-08. Regrouping, they earned back-to-back President’s Cup titles in 2010 and 2011, the latter marking the most successful season in club history at 18-1-3. •The Challenge Cup final will be preceded by the President’s Cup final at 7 p.m.

Richmond Hospital patients are set to benefit from an Endochameleon thanks to the $13,575 donation made by the Richmond Poppy Fund. An Endochameleon is a videoscope that allows the surgeon to quickly and easily find a viewing direction inside a patient’s body up to any angle between 0 and 120 degrees. The Richmond Poppy Fund has a long history of donating to Richmond Hospital. To date, it has donated over $130,000 to improve health care in the community.
