Civic grants will bring ‘stability’ to arts groups, says advocate City money helps fill the void left by provincial cuts by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Arts and culture groups netted $82,300 from the city Monday, after civic politicians approved the first set of grants dedicated to the arts. Taxpayers will help fund operations or specific projects of 20 arts groups this year under the new grant program, which makes $100,000 available to arts groups each year. Local arts advocate Willa Walsh told council Monday that a separate grant category for the arts was needed. “It’s going to make a huge difference. It’s going to bring a lot of “Arts are the soul of stability to arts and culture in Richour community and mond,” she said. Walsh said lots of arts activity we must continue to is happening in Richmond, noting support them.” a recent Mozart-themed concert - Bill McNulty from the Richmond Orchestra and Chorus sold out, and a Cinevolution Media Arts Society screening of Lost Years drew 130 people to a screening in which hopeful organizers set up just 100 chairs. Coun. Bill McNulty said following cuts in provincial grants in 2008, arts groups “took it on the head more than anybody else.” “Arts are the soul of our community and we must continue to support them. At the same time we need to press other levels of government to do similar,” he said. Among the recipients is Cinevolution, which will net $10,000 to assist with its annual international film festival Your Kontinent. Other grants: $9,000 for Richmond Orchestra and Chorus Association; $9,000 for Richmond Youth Choral Society; $8,500 for Richmond Music School Society; and $5,000 for the Community Arts Council. Council adopted changes to its grants program last summer, creating a dedicated $100,000 annual fund for arts and culture groups. Cash leftover from this year’s fund will go to arts programs throughout the year.

Richmond Mountie knew statements would ‘skew’ investigation, judge rules Monty Robinson found guilty of obstructing justice by Christine Lyon Black Press Richmond RCMP Cpl. Benjamin “Monty” Robinson knew drinking vodka after the Tsawwassen collision that claimed the life of a young motorcyclist would mislead police, a judge ruled last week. In her reasons for judgement, Justice Janice Dillon said Robinson’s decision to drink alcohol following the 2008 crash that killed 21-year-old Orion Hutchinson “was not a simple error of judgement, mistake or inadvertence.” “Robinson’s act of drinking vodka was, I conclude, wilfully designed to set up the defence that he had learned during his police training,” Dillon said in New Westminster Supreme Court on March 23. Robinson was found guilty of obstruction of justice. Robinson was off duty when his Jeep collided with Hutchinson’s motorcycle at the intersection of 6th Ave. and Gilchrist Dr. shortly after 10:15 p.m. on Oct. 25, 2008. Following the accident, Robinson gave his driver’s licence to a bystander and left the scene to walk his two children home. Dillon said Robinson performed his “bare legal duty” by leaving his licence. “His explanation of prioritization of his children is an inexplicable perversion in the circumstances,” she added. Upon his return to the accident scene, Robinson told Delta Police Const. Sarah Swallow he had downed two shots of vodka at home nearby to calm his

nerves. He told Swallow that, at a Halloween party earlier in the evening, he had consumed “a couple beers” at 5:30 p.m. During his trial, Robinson admitted to consuming five beers between about 5:30 to 9:40 p.m. “Robinson was aware that he had consumed five beers and knew that his response to Swallow was untrue,” Dillon stated. Delta Police administered two breathalyzer tests, the lowest reading coming out at 0.10 mgs of alcohol. Robinson was not charged with impaired driving, but with attempt to obstruct justice. The

Crown decided not to lay any drivingrelated charges, concluding the available evidence did not establish proof beyond a reasonable doubt Robinson had a blood alcohol level over the legal limit at the time of the collision. In her ruling, Dillon noted that as a veteran RCMP officer, Robinson commonly investigated drinking and driving offences and was familiar with the protocol of questions and observations to be made in these circumstances. During his career, he took many training courses, including how to administer a blood-alcohol screening test.

City shelves film bylaw ‘Unintended consequences’ prompts council to remove item from agenda by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter City council has shelved a proposed bylaw requiring commercial camera operators to seek permission from city hall before filming on private or public property. On Monday city council was set to approve the bylaw, dubbed “problematic” by the B.C. Civil Liberties Association. But at its 7 p.m. meeting, council removed the bylaw from the agenda. “It was brought to our attention that there was some unintended conse-

quences of the bylaw,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. After The Richmond Review contacted the B.C. Civil Liberties Association last week, the watchdog group sent a letter to the city outlining its concerns. Policy director Micheal Vonn was expecting to discuss the matter with city officials this week. The bylaw would require commercial camera operators to pay the city $200 for a permit before filming anywhere in Richmond, including private residences. The bylaw makes no exemptions for those turning marginal profits, such as bloggers or YouTube video creators. Even videographers or photographers filming on public property for personal use—streets, soccer fields, community centres—would be required to get a permit to do so, at a cost of $50. Brodie said once the bylaw is reviewed, it will come back to council for approval “in due course.” Last week city council endorsed the bylaw at a committee meeting in a 7-0 vote.

The guilty verdict was met with an outpouring of emotion from Hutchinson’s family. “This doesn’t bring my son back, but there is definitely a sense of satisfaction just hearing that very strongly worded word ‘guilty,’” Orion’s mother Judith told media after the verdict was handed down. “If he had walked away and the verdict had been not guilty, in terms of just emotional survival, I don’t know if I could keep going,” she added. Judith would not comment on her hopes for the sentencing, but said she

would like to see Robinson stripped of his RCMP badge. “The RCMP should immediately suspend him without pay and then terminate him, and do an internal investigation of their own—which should have been done two years ago.” At a March 23 press conference, RCMP Assistant Commissioner Norm Lipinski said the commanding officer for the RCMP is seeking Robinson’s dismissal, but added Robinson is entitled to due process. Lipinski also said in light of the judge’s decision, the Mounties will be launching an obstruction of justice investigation. A code of conduct investigation is already underway, and Robinson still faces RCMP internal allegations of disgraceful conduct for operating a motor vehicle while impaired, failing to remain at the scene, and failing to render assistance. Crown prosecutor Kris Pechet said he is hopeful the conviction gives some comfort to the Hutchinson family. He would not comment on sentencing. “The Crown position on sentence is not yet formulated,” he said. Pechet added there is a potential for jail time, and the maximum penalty the law allows for an obstruction of justice conviction is 10 years. But he will have to review the judge’s decision before taking a position. “The factors will include, of course, the fact that he is a police officer and in some respects in a position of trust,” Pechet said. A sentencing date will be scheduled on April 4. Robinson was among the four Richmond RCMP officers involved in the tasering death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport in 2007. He and three other officers are facing perjury charges in relation to the incident.

Steveston steps up with $15,000 Second fundraising walk, for children rebuilding their lives in Japan, a success by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A charity walk in Steveston Sunday raised $15,007 for Japanese children who are putting their lives back together following a devastating tsunami one year ago. “I was very pleased with the number of people who came and also very pleased with the amount of moneys that were generously donated, in that we are over a year away from the disaster,” said Bill McNulty, a Richmond city councillor and member of the lead organizing group, the Steveston Rotary Club. One-kilometre fundraising walks took place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. McNulty estimated 1,000 people participated, some simply dropping off donations without embarking on a walk.

“I think it’s a reminder that people still care,” said McNulty. All donations will go to supporting children in need in the small village of Onagawa, near Sendai, Japan, which was rocked by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. A similar walk last year raised more than $100,000.

Richmond Review · Page 5

Yap back in cabinet; Howard named parliamentary secretary by Bhreandain Clugston and Martin van den Hemel Richmond Review Two Richmond MLAs now have bigger roles in government. Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap was appointed minister of state for multiculturalism by Premier Christy Clark on Saturday. “I’m truly humbled and honoured to be the minister of state for multiculturalism,” Yap told The Richmond Review Monday. Yap replaces Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy, who resigned March 16 after he admitted to leaking an e-mail from a Province reporter to Eminata Group, which runs for-profit post-secondary schools and was the subject of the e-mail. Yap said the transition to his new role will be eased by the fact that for the last year he’s been chair of the Immigration Task Force, a committee examining the current system of economic immigration to Canada. “I’m delighted at this change.” Considering B.C.’s and Richmond’s strong economic ties to Asia, Yap said friendships and partnerships with that part of the globe will be “so vital for British Columbia, and certainly our community.” Yap said the recovery of the world’s economy is “very tentative and could be fragile,” but expressed some optimism, pointing to the U.S. which has evidenced signs of a true recovery. “But we’ve got a long way to go,” Yap said, adding that there’s still uncertainty in Europe, with countries like Spain, Portugal, Italy and France experiencing tough times and high public debts.

Another Richmond resident faces charges from Stanley Cup riot Eleven more charges were approved against five suspected rioters last week, including a Richmond teen. Johnathan Wong, 18, is facing charges of participating in a riot and breaking and entering. The latest charges brings to 432 the number of criminal charges the Integrated Riot Investigation Team has recommended against 150 suspected rioters.

75 suspected rioters have been charged to date with 197 criminal charges. The charges stem from the Stanley Cup riots in Downtown Vancouver last June 15, where thousands rioted following the Vancouver Canucks playoff loss. Other Richmond residents charged are Jamil Sunderji, Sophie LaBoissonniere, Camille Cacnio, Roneil Kumar and a 17-year-old.

City Board Construction advisory B.C. Government photo John Yap (right) is sworn in as minister of state for multiculturalism by Lieut-Gov. Steven Point.

He said the path chosen by the Liberal government, under Clark, with a focus on getting value for public services and keeping taxes competitive, is the right one. B.C. is well positioned to benefit from its links with Asia, which Yap thinks will continue to provide strength as the world continues to recover. B.C. must draw strength from its immigrant communities, which have forged links with Asia, he said. In speaking to residents all across the province, Yap said there’s strong support for improvements to the immigration processes, and more economic immigration. And for immigrants who first settle in B.C., ensuring there are systems and programs in place to help them integrate and contribute to their communities is vital, he said he’s been told. First elected in 2005 and reelected in 2009, Yap was appointed minister of state for climate action

by then-premier Gordon Campbell in 2009. He was shuffled from cabinet once Clark became premier in 2011 and was named parliamentary secretary for clean technology. Richmond Centre MLA Rob Howard was named parliamentary secretary to the minister of transportation with a specific focus on air services agreements. Howard, a former Richmond city councillor who is in his first term as MLA, currently chairs the Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services and is the provincial lead for the Air Access Initiative to encourage open skies. Clark also appointed VancouverLangara MLA Dr. Moira Stilwell as parliamentary secretary to the minister of health with a specific focus on health care innovation. Stilwell served as minister of advanced education and labour market development and minister of regional economic and skills development under Campbell.

Lingerie Football League holds Richmond tryout by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

Longtime Richmond resident Alessa Garcia, who grew up in Richmond but now resides in Surrey, was among 11 women to make the initial cut following last Friday’s Lingerie Football League tryout at Sportstown. Nearly two dozen women tried out for a spot on the B.C. Angels—which will be playing out of Abbotsford—and many quickly demonstrated that they were more than just a pretty face. Coquitlam’s Mary Anne Hanson distinguished herself with her strong and accurate throwing arm, Vancouver’s Stephanie Manou showed off her overall athleticism thanks to her experience as a rugby player, and both Port Moody’s Jeanette Jackson and Surrey’s Emilija Martic were among the strongest competitors who weren’t afraid to get physical. Garcia, who has been playing football recreationally for many years, has a versatile repertoire, capable as a quarterback, wide receiver, and defensive back. League founder and commissioner Mitchell

Martin van den Hemel photos From left, Coquitlam’s Mary Anne Hanson, North Vancouver’s Kate Marshall, Vancouver’s Ashley Petrie, Vancouver’s Stephanie Manou, Coquitlam’s Sara Leibl, Surrey’s Alessa Garcia—who grew up in Richmond—and Surrey’s Emilija Martic were invited to a mini-camp.

Mortaza tweeted following the tryout: “This was the greatest group of athletic women to ever compete at an LFL tryout, ever.â€? Mortaza said those who made the cut on Friday are invited to a minicamp to try out for one of the ďŹ nal 20 roster positions. The B.C. Angels will make their debut on Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Regina Rage. While the athletes won’t be paid, Mortaza hyped up how they’ll instead receive plenty of proďŹ le and media attention. Also among the 11 who made Friday’s cut were: Vancouver’s Sara Lia Lam, Coquitlam’s Stephanie

Fitzgerald and Vancouver’s Megan Stewart. Friday’s two-hour tryout saw the LFL hopefuls demonstrate their offensive and defensive skills. They were run through a series of drills, from one-on-one tackling to throwing and catching, running pass routes, and trying to sack the quarterback. The exhausting tryout left many of the women with souvenirs in the form of scrapes and bruises. And plenty of smiles. Following the tryout, as Mortaza met with his staff to determine the ďŹ nalists, many of the participants said they had fun, and enjoyed the camaraderie

and workout. The LFL’s ďŹ rst Canadian team, in Toronto, formed last year and after one game became the centre of controversy. Players voiced concerns regarding safety, including inadequate equipment, ill-fitting shoulder pads and the use of hockey rather than football helmets. Players also complained about the coaching. They appealed to the coaches and the league to improve playing conditions, but claim nothing was done. In the end, four players were released from the squad and another 16 resigned.

P

remier Christy Clark was slow to react to losing MLA John van Dongen to the Conservatives.

It took almost 24 hours for the premier to respond after the Abbotsford South MLA shocked the province by leaving the floundering Liberals for the upstart Conservatives. “The only thing that John van Dongen accomplished yesterday was making it a little easier for the NDP to get elected in British Columbia,” Clark said in a news conference in Victoria the next day. However, many British Columbians would agree with much of what van Dongen had to say. In fact an Angus Reid poll released Tuesday shows Clark has a 33 per cent approval rating. “I don’t have confidence in the leader of the party,” van Dongen told The Abbotsford News. He pointed to the the government’s agreement to pay $6 million in legal bills for former ministerial aides David Basi and Bob Virk, in their corruption case over the sale of B.C. Rail. One interesting nugget that van Dongen dropped is the fact he had hired a lawyer to investigate the B.C. Rail plea-bargain deal and whether Clark has any links to the scandal. “People are concerned about those kind of integrity issues,” he said. Van Dongen said the “final straw” for him was the cancellation of the BC Place naming rights deal with Telus. The government has been heavily criticized for leaving $35 million on the table. Clark was sworn in as premier just over a year ago after her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, was forced to resign over his disastrous introduction of the Harmonized Sales Tax. Other than adding a new stat

holiday, raising the minimum wage and putting the brakes on some of Campbell’s attempts at overly-complicated, micromanaged shuffles of ministeries, the past year has been a steady stream of photo-ops, with very little substance.

The past few weeks have been particularly disastrous for the Liberals. Harry Bloy was forced to resign as minister of state for multiculturalism for sharing an e-mail from a reporter with the individual whom

the reporter was gathering information about. The person he shared it with is a substantial donor to the BC Liberals. The Liberals also completely fumbled the naming rights to B.C. Place, kissing away $35 million and making people actually feel sorry for failed suitor Telus, which isn’t the most loved company in the B.C. Then there was Clark ducking questions from the media while her director of communications Sara MacIntyre ran interference

at a Vancouver trade show. This after the premier’s own office had promised media availability. Van Dongen’s departure is a huge boost for the Conservatives, who are virtually neck-and-neck with the Liberals in the polls. He may soon get some company in the legislature as the Conservatives look likely to win a byelection in Chilliwack. And as the bad news racks up for the Liberals, will van Dongen’s flight help light the way for other disgruntled Liberals to flee.

acations are good for you. Studies claim that

taking time away from the rat race reduces heart disease, allows the body’s immunity to rebuild itself, lessens stress, and helps rebuild relationships. There’s something about a different schedule, sleeping in, and not having the regular day-to-day responsibilities that is renewing and fresh. My spring break was definitely refreshing. While I wasn’t basking in the sun on a foreign beach, I did get my fair share of local R&R: biking, walks, and time with the kids. We ziplined, we visited the aquarium, and we saw a movie or two. I even managed to get some spring cleaning done. At the end of two weeks, it felt like my brain had undergone a reboot. Fresh as a clean piece of paper, I was ready to

go back to work, relaxed and ready to go. Or so I thought. The transition from reboot to “power on” was a tricky one. I couldn’t remember my computer password. I’d forgotten where I put my keys. I hoped that the reports that I’d brought home to finish up over the holidays was in my work bag. Now where had I put that bag? Thank goodness I’d left detailed notes for myself before leaving. Perhaps anticipating my post-break brain-dead state, I had written out what needed to be done, what was due when, and my password. Ahah! I hit the ground running or rather tripping and limping. As the day went on, the relaxed Zen of spring break was leaking out of me like a damaged birthday balloon. I was slow. I

was inefficient. I felt like I was moving at half speed. I started wondering if my reboot was good for me after all. Did the benefits of vacation relaxation overcome the stressful week of adjustment when I came back to work? Right now as the drizzly weather reflects my mood, I’m rather pessimistic. I slog through my daily tasks, savouring my spring break memories and daydreaming, as I get the job done. There’s nothing to anticipate except the Easter holidays. Ah, Good Friday. That’s something to look forward to. Good. Andrea Phillpotts is a Richmond writer and teacher.

letters Keep Grauer lands in a natural state Editor: It was with mixed feelings that I read in The Richmond Review that the City of Richmond had purchased a swath of the West Dyke Trail between Blundell and Westminster Highway. The announcement by Mayor Brodie raised enough alarm bells that I headed to the City website for more information. My initial happiness that the City and Richmond’s people have the opportunity to preserve this glorious piece of natural habitat forever was soon tempered by the following quote on the City website. Quote: “The City of Richmond will manage the land as a public park to provide education and passive recreation opportunities that will complement the conservation purposes for which the land was purchased.” This mile-long Right now, standing on the dyke, this mile- strip has unfetlong strip has unfettered trees, shrubs, tered trees, shrubs, and wetlands and wetlands stretchstretching towards ing towards the sea, and shrubs and trees the sea. back-stopped by the Q-Club Golf Course. This unique extent of open and green space has allowed wildlife to flourish practically undisturbed for thousands of years. Every day we see eagles, hawks, owls, singing birds, herons, snow geese, Canadian geese, ducks, coyotes, and smaller life (if one looks hard enough). Unfortunately, much of what passes as “conservation” and “park management” these days consists of putting in picnic benches, washrooms, gaudily colored waste bins, unending signs, miles of gravel paths, information areas, visitors’ centres, car parks, and concession stands. Inevitably, this results in an influx of vehicles, people, chronic noise, pollution, “licensed” park events, rowdy parties with drinking, illegal burning of fossil materials, and lots of garbage. We do not have to look further than Garry Point to see the end result of managing our pristine wild areas as public parks. This once exceptionally beautiful and natural headland has become a crowded over-used, over-managed “park” as evidenced by the very large car park, ugly gaudy garbage bins, too many trails, and more signs than trees. So at this point in time, I ask that the City of Richmond writes a charter to protect this new gem. This charter will declare that preserving the habitat for our wonderful wildlife friends is the over-riding purpose of purchasing this land. A good first step would be to designate this new area, not as a public park, but as a wildlife sanctuary. We have a heavy responsibility not to destroy it; every intervention has unexpected results; our best way forward in this case is to leave Nature to look after itself. The Grauer Family have done their part; our Mayor and Council should immediately announce a policy of non-intervention on the West Dyke Trail and Sturgeon Banks. John McCrossan Richmond

City to re-examine proposed bylaw

Good Samaritans in Richmond

Editor: Recently The Richmond Review discussed the proposed changes to the City of Richmond’s Film Regulation Bylaw (“Filming on private property to cost $200,” March 23). I would like to clarify the information presented. Filming activity has steadily increased in Richmond. One of the goals of the proposed bylaw is to balance this increased activity while we minimize negative impacts and maximize the benefits to residents as well as merchants in the city. The intent of the proposed bylaw is to regulate larger scale movie and TV productions in

Editor: It is very nice to see that there are a lot of Good Samaritans here in Richmond. On Friday, March 23, my wife was shopping for birthday gifts for our twin great-grand-children. When she came out, and got to the roadway, she stumbled and fell “face first” onto the pavement. She was dazed and bleeding heavilly from the face and mouth. A gentleman immediately helped her to her feet and assisted her to some chairs at the JYSK store (where the staff was very helpful). Then he and his wife called for an ambulance and Trudy was taken to the Emergency at Richmond Hospital. She had stitches inside the mouth, etc. Due to her pain and bleeding, she was unable to get the names of that very fine couple, but we know that the incident could have been much worse, had they not stopped to help. Thank you both for your kind attention, Donn and Trudy Pound Richmond

addition to other commercial filming that requires considerable city staff time. This takes place on city or private property where there could be potential disruptions to neighbourhoods and other conflicts. There is no interest in controlling or managing filming for private purposes, such as the filming of weddings, picnics, home videos, etc. City council has now taken the opportunity to re-examine the proposed bylaw to provide further clarity. We will consider more appropriate wording for the bylaw before bringing it back to council this spring. Mayor Malcolm D. Brodie Richmond

letters Trees and Walmart Editor: Subsequent to the story reported on March 15 about the trees at the proposed Walmart site (“Protected trees engulfed in water at Walmart site”), I have asked city staff to conduct an on-site inspection to assess the situation. It was discovered that the unauthorized preloading has affected seven trees located in the middle of the development site. Fortunately, 165 other trees, including three significant trees and one

high value tree, were not affected. According to city staff, all seven trees were in very poor condition prior to the preloading. Based on the existing poor conditions of the trees, a tree removal permit would have been issued regardless of the site being developed. I also understand that the tree issue at this site will be addressed in the upcoming rezoning report prepared by city staff. I would like to thank The Richmond Review and Mr. Michael Wolfe for bringing this to public attention. However, I am still concerned about the practice of unauthorized preloading by developers before their

community City nets pair of awards for financial reporting The Government Financial OfďŹ cers Association of North America has awarded the City of Richmond a pair of awards for ďŹ nancial reporting. The awards, presented by staff to Mayor Malcolm Brodie Monday, are for the city’s 2010 annual report. This is the ninth year in a row the city has claimed the Canadian Award for Financial Reporting, and the second year in a row it has earned the Popular Annual Financial Reporting award. City spokesperson Ted Townsend explained the annual report is produced entirely by city staff, who are now starting work on the 2011 edition. “Although a lot of these awards have become routine, we never stop working to try to raise the bar each year,â€? he said. The annual report details the city’s ďŹ nancial position and proďŹ les key services offered by the city. The awards are part of the Canadian Award for Financial Reporting program, established by the Government Financial OfďŹ cers Association of North America. All municipal governments are able to apply for the awards, which recognize governments that go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles.

Fourth time’s a charm as Ravens ice BC title by Don Fennell Sports Editor AJ Sander is sporting a Mohawk haircut today. The familiar lengthy moustache is also history, sacrificed in the name of success. But it’s a concession the coach of the Richmond Ravens Midget AA girls’ hockey team would happily make again if it meant another provincial championship. Prior to entering last week’s tournament in Salmon Arm, the players convinced Sander to let them shear his tresses if they won the B.C. title. And after the Ravens’ 6-1 finalgame victory over Kelowna on Friday, the hair cut followed. “I give them credit for sacrificing all their Friday nights (playing home games) and buying in to the team first,” said Sander. “There weren’t any egos. Team was always more important than the individual and the players played like that.” Making their fifth consecutive trip to the provincial championships and fourth straight appearance in the final, the Ravens were hoping to cap what wound up being a dream season in which they went 52-1-5 and won their last 22 games in a row. The 2010-11 season had also been a stellar one for the Ravens, but ended in disappointment as Richmond dropped its final game at the B.C. tournament to Langley—a team they had defeated handily during the season. The loss was devastating, but the girls drew inspiration from it throughout the 2011-12 season, said Sander. Though slightly nervous entering their first game against Whitehorse at this year’s provincials, the Ravens soon settled down and after just a period were up 5-1. They added six goals in each of the

next two periods, highlighted by the first goals of the season by defencemen Hannah Coates and Alisha Wong. Emily Costales had nine points (two goals and seven assists). The Ravens were also tentative in the first period of the final and surrendered the first goal to Kelowna before Evelyn Tran set up Sabrina Shigeoka for the tying goal with 1:32 to go in the opening frame. Leah Lum scored what proved to be the game-winner unassisted 3:58 into the second period, followed in short order by Shigeoka’s second goal, also unassisted. Costales from Jasmine Manhas gave Richmond a 4-1 lead after two periods, and captain Sabrina May completed the scoring with an unassisted goal midway through the third. Typically reserved throughout the season, the Ravens finally let their emotions spill out on the ice after the victory. And in a fitting salute to his graduating players, Sander made sure six were all on the ice for the final shift. “The kids on the bench were going crazy, counting down the final 10 seconds,” said Sander. “It was their Stanley Cup and they couldn’t wait for the buzzer.” See Page 14

also believes the team’s success will translate into more Ravens graduating to college programs like Natasha Steblin who played this season at Red Deer College after playing for the Ravens last season. Schell is apparently considering an opportunity at the University of Alberta for next season.

Blues first to three-peat at BC championships Richmond edges Seafair in rematch of 2011 provincial final by Don Fennell Sports Editor The Richmond Blues are the first team in the history of the BC Hockey provincial juvenile championships to three-peat. The Blues earned the feat by edging crosstown rival Seafair Islanders 3-1 in an edge-of-your-seat final Sunday night at Minoru Arenas. It was the second win in four days for Richmond over Seafair, which were the tournament hosts. The Blues won the tournament opener between the two teams 2-1 Thursday at the Richmond Ice Centre and remained undefeated going 6-0. Seafair went 3-2-1. This was the second year in a row Richmond and Seafair met in the championship final. “I’m really proud of the boys,” said Richmond coach Maurice Hamlin, who has promised to serve the Blues another steak and lobster dinner in celebration of their provincial title. The Blues relied on skill and finesse to get the job done, and their transition game was at peak perfor-

mance during the championships. They also demonstrated a healthy dose of heart, epitomized by Corey Tasaka playing every shift with the same energy and determination. That caused Hamlin to compare him to the Energizer Bunny. “Corey is a real go-getter and competitor,” said Hamlin. “You always need one or two guys like that on your team, someone who brings evThe Richmond Blues celebrate their 2012 provincial Juvenile Division hockey championship Sunday at Minoru Arenas. erybody up.” Richmond has ery player, coach and trainer Kahlon played like a veteran, les’ shorthanded goal with “We had plenty of chances played in the last four tournament finals, los- was able to look in the mir- while captain Andrew Talbot 33 seconds to play in the but no finish, although Riching out to Cloverdale in 2009 ror and know that they did shouldered most of the load middle frame tied the game mond’s goaltender (Cole before victories over North everything they could to on the blueline during the at 1-1.

CUDLIPP, Gordon William March 7, 1922-March 22, 2012 It is with great sadness that the family of Gordon Cudlipp announces his passing at 90 years of age. He is survived by his wife Eileen of 66 years and his five children; Gord (Marlene) and David (Espie) of Gibsons, Margaret Coopman (Ben) of Vancouver, Noreen Cudlipp of Toronto, Lori Scharf (Randy) of Richmond; four grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Gordon was born in Vancouver at St Paul’s Hospital, attended Kitsilano High School, joined the RCAF in 1942 and served until 1946 and then worked for the Hudson’s Bay Company for 38 years. Gordon and Eileen settled in Richmond in 1957. After retirement, Gordon was a very active volunteer at the Richmond Senior’s Centre and enjoyed golf, lawn bowling, crib and travel. Gordon and Eileen were onboard for 30 cruises. No service by request. We thank Dr Mc Creary and the 3rd floor staff of the Minoru Residence for their care.

PETS

OF PET THE WEEK

“LUCA” NEEDS A GOOD HOME WITH YOU! “LUCA”, ID #256478, NM, DSH CROSS BENGAL, 4 YEARS Luca is an outgoing, affectionate guy that was found up a tree in Abbotsford for 5 days! He is very active, has a lot of energy, and loves to run around and climb the scratching post. He loves to greet people and check out what they are doing. We believe there may be a bit of Bengal in him, and he is a VERY vocal cat that likes to chat with you. Luca may not be a lap cat, but he sure loves attention and enjoys being brushed. He’ll rub up against your legs and flop over when he wants to be pet. He is a great heat-seeker, and likes to cover himself up with his blanket. This silver and black striped boy is very curious and investigates everything! He would be safer kept as an indoor cat. Come and meet Luca today!

> Community Arts Council of Richmond’s 1st annual Sculpture Challenge

Around Town Amanda Oye

Young sculptors display their works

W

ith a bit of hard work and a lot of creativity, materials that were ready to be thrown away were transformed into art by the 10- to 15-year-old participants of the Community Arts Council of Richmond’s first annual Sculpture Challenge.

Eight cash prizes were given out to the top sculptures made completely out of recycled materials last Friday at Richmond City Hall where the winning pieces of art had been on display for two weeks. “The fact that they tried something different that maybe they’ve never done before and they’ve been rewarded for it … that could just be huge long-term,” said Margaret Stephens, the treasurer and primary administrator for the Community Arts Council of Richmond. The arts council introduced the contest because they wanted to do something “that would be adventurous for the kids,” Stephens said. Through this project the kids also learned about recycling. Mayor Malcolm Brodie gave a speech on the importance of recycling after the kids received their awards and then congratulated them on their work and took a moment to talk to them about their sculptures. The winning sculptures will be on display again during Arts and Culture Week at Gulf of Fraser in Steveston. Amanda Oye covers the social scene. amanda.oye@telus. net.

Emily Chen, the second place winner in the senior category.

Greg, Malou, Mackenzie and Kyra Hourston, who was the honourable mention in the junior category.

Alexandra Burns, the first place winner in the senior category.
