Steveston merchants reject parking meters Field City mulls pay street parking trips, as one critic suggests going ‘back to the drawing board’ school sports in peril by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Pay parking on the streets of Steveston Village would “absolutely kill” businesses, according to the president of the Steveston Merchants Association. “Merchants in the village have a pretty hard struggle for eight months of the year,” said Jim van der Tas. “(Pay parking is) going to put up another barrier that people have to leap through to consider using Steveston as a place to shop.” City hall is mulling the idea of charging for street parking in Steveston, following Steveston Harbour Authority’s move to add meters to federally-owned lots in the village. City council’s public works and transportation committee is expected to be the first to stickhandle the topic at its April 18 meeting. Meanwhile merchants have signed a petition against the idea, which they say would lead to a drop in business that could cause some businesses to fold. What separates Steveston from other popular destinations in the region, said van der Tas, who owns Blue Canoe Waterfront Restaurant, is lack of access and low density. The fishing village isn’t easily accessed by transit, he contends, nor is it home to an abundance of people to create a critical mass of customers. “You take that scenario of no density, no easy transit,

and you put pay parking in, you’re going to lose customers,” he said. On a sunny weekend in Steveston parking is difficult to find, van der Tas acknowledged, but he said that’s not unlike any other destination in Metro Vancouver, such as Granville Island or Fort Langley. For two-thirds of the year, customers can park within a block of where they want to go, he said. “You could shoot a cannon through Steveston most days and nights, specifically nights,” said van der Tas, who is urging the city to allow merchants to draft their own proposal, one that could include moving staff vehicles elsewhere. “As business owners and merchants, we’re not just saying no, we want to offer solutions.”

Majority of local teachers opt to stop volunteer work by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

Pay parking ‘encourages turnover’ Talk of parking options in Steveston is almost as old as the village itself. Within the last five years, the city has held at least two rounds of open houses on the topic. Feedback from a 2006 open house found just 18 per cent of respondents supported pay parking in the village core. Last month city staff took its message to the Steveston 20/20 Group, an umbrella group of various community organizations in the area. At that meeting, staff told local community and business leaders what was driving the

concept of pay parking on streets: to increase turnover of spaces near the waterfront, reduce circling traffic and increase the use of spaces farther north. Accomplishing that could include angled parking

for Chatham and Bayview streets, with the possibility of three zones of pay parking in the village. Plans, said city spokesperson Ted Townsend, are “very preliminary.” He said staff are planning to first recommend

EASTER GREETINGS

School-based field trips, sports teams and extra curricular activity are on the chopping block after Richmond teachers voted in favour of ceasing afterschool volunteer work. Hoping to send a strong message to Victoria about their displeasure at the passing of Bill 22—which legislated teachers back to work, and threatens heavy fines for those who ignore the law—Richmond Teachers’ Association president Al Klassen said local teachers felt they had no other choice but to stop doing all those extra things outside their job requirements. While the B.C. Teachers’ Federation has yet to issue an edict on what its members should do regarding sports team coaching and extra curricular activity, at least five school districts, including Richmond, went ahead and raised the issue with their membership.

Teachers feel hamstrung by Bill 22

City plans sister city trips to Asia Richmond delegation to build sister city ties with Xiamen, China and Wakayama, Japan by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Mayor Malcolm Brodie and six council colleagues will head to Asia later this month on a mission to strengthen ties with Richmond’s sister cities. Brodie will lead a 22-member delegation to China April 25 to 29 to sign a formal sister city agreement with Xiamen. Last year, when a delegation from Xiamen visited Richmond, the two cities inked a letter of intent to become sister cities after courting each other as “friendship cities” for three years. Richmond council’s visit will also focus on increasing tourism, particularly through expanded air service, education and economic development. “We’ve seen real economic and cultural benefits from our relationship and are looking forward to building on that foundation through an expanded sister city relationship,” said Brodie in a press release. Brodie will be joined by Couns. Chak Au, Derek Dang, Ken Johnston, Bill McNulty, Linda McPhail and Harold Steves, along with three city staffers and four sister city committee members. Their travel costs are estimated at $40,000, according to city spokesperson Ted Townsend, and will be paid for by taxpayers. Townsend noted China Eastern Airlines is providing discounts of approximately $15,000. Also joining city will be representatives from the Richmond board of education, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Trinity Western University, Richmond Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Richmond. According to a news release from the Foreign Affairs Office of the Xiamen Municipal People’s Government, “the tourism departments of Richmond and Xiamen should sign co-operative agreement[s] to promote travels back and forth.” The release also noted the Foreign Language High School and Xiamen Science and Technology High School have a strong interest in future student exchanges with Richmond. Xiamen, located on the southeast coast of China, has a population of 2.25 million—over 10 times that of Richmond. Before the Xiamen trip, the city will spend approximately $15,000 to send a four-person delegation to Japan April 18 to 24. Councillors Bill McNulty and Harold Steves will lead the delegation, which will visit Onagawa, a small fishing village that Steveston non-profit groups have been raising funds for ever since a devastating tsunami nearly wiped out the community. Also on the itinerary is a visit to Richmond’s sister city of Wakayama, ahead of next year’s 40-year anniversary of the two cities’ sister city relationship. Japanese tall ships Kaiwo Maru and Nippon Maru will also be on the radar of the Richmond delegation, which will be talking possible visits to Steveston from the two vessels. Last year city council approved $234,410 to strengthen its sister city relationships through to 2013. Richmond is also linked to Pierrefonds, Que., a Montreal borough now known as Pierrefonds-Roxboro. That sister city relationship is now in its 45th year.

Public invited to leaf their thanks on new VolunTREE Richmond Caring Place addition marks National Volunteer Week April 15-21 A new tree taking root at the Richmond Caring Place doesn’t need to be watered, but community nurturing is what it will take before it fully blossoms.

Five societies planning social housing project Project could bring 130 units of social housing to downtown Richmond in three years by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A new 130-unit social housing complex is expected to be built in downtown Richmond, officials announced this week. Turning Point Housing Society, Atira Women’s Resource Society, Coast Mental Health, SUCCESS Housing Society and Tikva Housing Society are set to design, build and operate the development on city-owned land at 8111 Granville Ave. The City of Richmond and BC Housing initiated the project, which aims to provide affordable rental housing for the homeless and those at risk of homelessness. The project is still in “early planning stages,” but is expected to be complete by spring 2015, according to a joint news release from the province and city. The city will contribute the land through a

long-term lease and “financial support,” while the province’s contribution has yet to be determined. The full scope of the project must first be “determined and proven viable,” according to the release. Once a plan is developed, the project will move through the city’s regular development permit process. Subsidized housing with support services is the primary focus, followed by low-end market rental housing and community/commercial space, according to last year’s call for expressions of interest. Brenda Plant, executive director of Turning Point Housing Society, said her group is committed to providing “transparency throughout the planning process.” Turning Point operates two addiction recovery houses in Richmond. This is the first time five societies have come together to build and manage one social housing development, according to Rich Coleman, minister responsible for housing. According to the city, 2,000 households spend more than half their income on rent and are at risk of becoming homeless. The Granville Avenue property has been the subject of a past proposal that’s fallen flat. In 2004, the city aimed to create a 20-bed homeless shelter on the site, along with space for social and addictions treatment, but the project never got off the ground.

From Page 1 Klassen said local teachers felt hamstrung by the legislation, which took away their rights to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement. “Bill 22 tells us to go back to work as if nothing happened,” he said Wednesday. “And this is not possible.” Teachers spend “countless hours” each week doing volunteer and extra-curricular activities, he said. “Our teachers are choosing to step away from those activities as a need to demonstrate their extreme unhappiness and anger,” he said. “Teachers are very upset about having to do that. Teachers are not taking this lightly.” Board of Education chair Donna Sargent said the district and the teachers association are currently still working through the ramifications of the decision by local teachers. Sargent said it’s her understanding that if an activity is already underway—such as graduation event related planning—that work will continue. But if the work hasn’t started yet, such as fielding a sports team for an upcoming season, that won’t be happening. And while volunteer community coaches have long been a part of school-based teams, a requirement for a teacher or school staffer to be a team sponsor could put that in jeopardy as well. Parents and students can anticipate receiving word as soon as next week about the impact the job action will have on students, teams and extra curricular activities like field trips. Sargent recalls the last time there was similar job action in 2005, and how that negatively impacted the willingness among teachers to take on teams and extra curricular work. Asked how the teachers association would feel if parents assumed the coaching responsibilities for schoolbased teams, Klassen said he hopes parents will respect the work teachers are doing to negotiate the province back to the bargaining table. “It’s their right to do so,” Klassen said. “It’s our hope they would respect what we’re doing. We’re hoping that our action will be acknowledged and respected.” Later this month, a province-wide vote will put the volunteer question to all teachers in every district, Klassen said. “Ultimately, children are impacted by this for sure,” he said.

Terry said the auto mall has adopted the rabbits, but a long-term solution is needed. “The more you have, the more risk there is of them getting run over,” she said. “It’s just not a safe place for any kind of animal to be roaming around at free will.” Terry, a self-confessed animal lover, said it’s not okay to dump your pet, whether it’s a rabbit, cat or dog. —by Martin van den Hemel

‘We don’t want what White Rock has’ From Page 1 “When (motorists) have to pay it encourages turnover, which means more people have the opportunity to use those spots throughout the day. So it actually increases capacity and the ability of people to patronize the shops.” Most parking lots open to the public are on federal land, managed by the Steveston Harbour Authority. The authority’s largest lot—unpaved, full of large potholes and running alongside Chatham Street—became a pay lot last year, and others are expected to be converted soon. Harbour authority general manager Bob Baziuk didn’t return a call, but city staff recently told a council committee that the authority plans to start charging at its other village lots in May. Baziuk told The Review last year that parking revenue was needed in part to operate and maintain the lots. Other groups, including the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, are considering charging for parking.

Steveston needs larger plan first Before the city installs parking meters of its own, the fishing village needs a much larger, more comprehensive plan. That according to Loren Slye, a Steveston resident and chair of the Steveston 20/20 Group. Village density, dyke levels and building heights all need attention before angled pay-parking spaces are created. “We don’t want what White Rock has, where you go sit in a restaurant and you go look at cars angle parked in front of you while you’re trying to look at the ocean having a nice dinner. We don’t need the ambience of a parking lot,” said Slye. Pay street parking could drive visitors farther into residential areas to find free spots—areas that are already forced to cope with high traffic during peak periods. “I feel what we really need to do is go back to the drawing board,” said Slye, suggesting public parking can be expanded at peak times by sharing lots with those who don’t use them on weekends. “I think there’s lots of parking opportunities. We just have to be creative and look at shared parking.”

hey say hindsight is 20/20. Looking back at a now historic land purchase by Richmond suggests that the city’s most recent buy is a good one. A few decades ago, city council of the day was split down the middle thanks to the Terra Nova lands. The majority of council voted to allow development on the sprawling farmland, and as a result, most of those politicians lost their jobs in the next election. Then, in a public referendum, taxpayers agreed to millions to buy the remaining chunk of northwest Lulu Island that hadn’t yet been developed. It was the right decision then, and still is today. The land now has a natural area for wildlife, a sharing farm that provides a bounty of produce to the Richmond Food Bank, a learning centre and a community garden. Passive trails have been added, heritage homes are slated for restoration, a historic slough has been rebuilt and a playground is planned for this year. Recently, the city was

The city and Ducks Unlimited recently purcahsed a large portion of Sturgeon Banks, on the Western edge of Lulu Island.

offered a steal of a deal by the Grauer family to buy a 51.4-hectare chunk of the Sturgeon Banks with Ducks Unlimited. The land, which was one of the largest pieces of privately-held Sturgeon Banks parcels, has now been designated as a

conservation site to ensure the long-term protection of this sensitive wildlife habitat. As development continues at a rapid pace in Richmond, that deal will prove to be a winner a generation from now. The same should be

said of the Garden City lands, which Richmond bought for $59 million in 2010. After some politicians had attempted to extract the land from the Agricultural Land Reserve to pursue a development deal, the land was bought, and to this

day remains protected. Plans for the longvacant site have yet to be developed, but when they do, taxpayers will undoubtedly be looking for a vision. They’ll be looking for a legacy— one that Terra Nova has already provided.

I found a banana peel, so I took it home

Shades of Green Arzeena Hamir

E

arly last fall, on a warm sunny day, I was walking to the library along Blundell Road and came across this scene just before Minoru: A single banana peel in the middle of the sidewalk.

I was so incensed! Not only had someone care-

lessly thrown the peel in an area where thousands of seniors live, now that garbage had suddenly become my problem. Do I walk away and pretend I didn’t see it? I couldn’t. There are some mighty strong sirens that go off in my head. I picked it up. Now came the second problem. What to do with it? Again, my conscience wouldn’t allow me to throw it in the garbage. Organic waste like this peel is the cause of methane offgasing in our landfills. I looked everywhere for an organic waste receptacle. None to be found on aparmentville Minoru. None at the library. I eventually had to put the peel inside my bag and wait until I got home where, by that time, it was

mush at the bottom. My husband thought I was insane. No one would have seen me if I’d just walked past it. But I can’t live my life like that. I know that one small peel doesn’t make a huge difference to the mountain of garbage our city produces in a day, but I saw it and it became my responsibility. We’ve just come off of Earth Hour when we were supposed to turn off all of our lights for just an hour. Now we’re coming up to Earth Day in just one week. What will be your action? When I hear news of 1,000 acres of farmland being lost in Delta, I know that my small garden isn’t making a huge difference but there are 100,000 front and backyard

gardens in Richmond. Maybe some of you will be converting those lawns into food in order to buffer the price shocks that are surely coming our way as we lose all our ability to feed ourselves in this province? I have personally skipped many cups of coffee after forgetting my reusable mug. And yet I see so many patrons, sitting, reading the paper or chatting with friends, drinking out of disposable cups. Multiply this by one cup a day and each coffee drinker is responsible for 40 kilograms of carbon dioxide per year. Just from the cup. Banning water bottles from Richmond City Hall isn’t just a symbolic gesture that pits labour against big business, as

Nestle would have you believe. Richmond committed to going Zero Waste by 2015. We also committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Every year 2.5 billion kilograms of plastic are used just for bottling water. That water then has to be trucked instead of flowing through a pipe. Now you know all of this information. Don’t pretend you didn’t read it. Earth Day isn’t just about doing one good deed; it’s about living consciously and understanding the impact of every action. Are you going to pick up the peel or will you just walk by? Arzeena Hamir is co-ordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society. Reach her at arzeenahamir@shaw.ca.

Bottled water doesn’t make financial or environmental sense

Some kids really do love school

Editor: Re: “Bottled water does not compete with tap water” (Letters, April 4, p. 12). Nestle spokesperson John Challinor II is partly right about CUPE’s joint work with the Council of Canadians on bottled water. The Blue Communities Project is absolutely a political campaign. What could be more appropriate than grassroots activism that invites our elected local representatives to have a democratic, public debate about how scarce municipal tax dollars should be spent. We believe municipal governments and other public bodies should not spend public funds providing bottled water at meetings or events, when a cheaper and sustainable public alternative is readily available on tap. It simply doesn’t make financial or environmental sense. It’s laughable (and insulting to local elected officials) to suggest that city councillors are being duped by our call to re-think the use of bottled water. Decisions to end the sale of bottled water are made in public, after open and democratic debate. It’s hard to argue with that process. Mr. Challinor is dead wrong when he suggests this project is not an environmental initiative. Bottled water is packaged in a singleuse, fossil fuel-based container. Some of those containers end up in landfills. And let’s not forget that recycling is the third of the three R’s, behind reduce and re-use. Transporting used bottles and the recycling them are both energy-intensive, polluting processes. Action on bottled water is the first step on a much longer path. Municipalities are at a crossroads of mounting infrastructure needs and rapidly dwindling federal infrastructure cash. Seizing the opportunity, the Harper government is targeting water and wastewater services for privatization. Federal funding to cash-strapped municipalities is currently only available on the condition that cities let corporations deliver water services on a forprofit basis.

CUPE welcomes all advocacy for federal investment that will expand and strengthen our public water and sewer infrastructure. In fact, we invite Mr. Challinor to join me in advocating for a sys-

tem of fair taxation— closing loopholes for corporations and ending corporate tax cuts that have drained the federal treasury of exactly the funds needed to invest in Canada’s water sys-

tems and other vital public services. Paul Moist National President, Canadian Union of Public Employees Maude Barlow National Chairperson, Council of Canadians

From Page 9 “Four separate times people came up to us and told us how they enjoyed the show and what a great time they had,” he said. “And this is the next town over.” All Shook Up, set in 1955, is about a small-town girl who dreams of hitting the open road. Enter Chad, who turns the town upside down with his ideas of romance, rebellion and rock ‘n’ roll. Joe DiPietro is the man behind the script, a playwright who also penned a pair of other plays produced at Gateway in recent years: Art of Murder in 2009 and I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change in 2008. Gateway’s outgoing artistic and executive director, Simon Johnston, directs this production, which has been on stage in Chemainus since Feb. 24. The entire cast of 14, set and costumes move to Gateway next week.

Beatty, born in Vanderhoof, B.C., is a 2007 graduate of Studio 58 and has been on the local stage twice before: Guys and Dolls under Sarah Rodgers and Thoroughly Modern Millie under Simon Johnston. He’s found steady work in musicals, Shakespeare, children’s theatre and TV, but All Shook Up has given him his biggest role so far. “It’s probably my first real big shot,” he said. “Just as far as stage time goes and the challenge of keeping my voice up goes, this is definitely my biggest role to date.” Indeed, the show features 25 songs—many Elvis standards— and he’s singing in 16 of them, including solos “Love Me Tender,” and “I Don’t Want To.” With so many songs, all the actors have their favourite. Beatty’s is one he doesn’t even sing: “A Little Less Conversation.” As it turns out, the “top hits” cas-

settes his parents owned—one for every year in the Elvis era—were a blessing. Beatty said he used to listen to those songs on rotation, giving him a good handle on the show’s songs. The music serves as Chad’s method of bringing life to a small town. And Chad, well, he’s got a little magic in his soul, fixing broken jukeboxes with just a touch. “He’s a man who believes in life, love and freedom. He loves his motorbike. He rides from town to town and spreads rock music wherever he goes and he loves nothing more than to open people up to the emotions they feel inside,” said Beatty. The character is familiar to Beatty, who has played the hairstyle-blackleather look as Danny Zuko in Grease. He even shares some of Chad’s personality, just maybe not the swivelling hips. “I don’t think I’ve ever done that. He’s way cooler than I am.”

Yarn bombing comes to city hall Knit-graffiti artist says people recognize value in making things by hand by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Knit-graffiti artist Leanne Prain helped create an art phenomenon one year ago that gave new life to a dying cherry tree. At the historic Joy Kogawa House in Vancouver—now a house for writersin-residence—Prain co-led a project to sew hundreds of knitted and crocheted blossoms to a tree featured in Kogawa’s children’s book, Naomi’s Tree. The tree is now gone, but for a few months it lived again with yarn. Prain will be in Richmond next Thursday to present a talk, “Knitting the Landscape,” as part of the Lulu Series at Richmond City Hall. The Vancouver resident is author of Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery, a book on unconventional stitching, and co-author of Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti (with Mandy Moore), a definitive guide to the world of knit graffiti. Knit graffiti is an international guerrilla movement now embraced by crochet and knitting artists who create works of art out of yarn and then donate them to public spaces. It come in forms of everything from political messages embroidered into chain link fences— questioning the use of public property in selfexpression—to knitted mice in an attempt to change perspectives toward a neighbourhood. Prain grew up learning handicrafts, but didn’t pick up the art of knitting until her early 20s. She honed her skills with a friend and started a “stitch and bitch” knitting circle at a pub. She said perceptions have changed toward creations crafted from two needles and some yarn. It’s becoming more socially acceptable again. “It’s not looked upon

It’s seen as a good use of time instead of a waste of time.” Before her talk in Richmond begins, Prain will lead a mini-workshop with audience members to create a yarn-based craft of their own to take out to the landscape.

The Rotary Club of Richmond’s 50th anniversary

The Rotary Club of Richmond celebrates 50 years of making a difference

Clockwise from top left: Rotary Charter Members, MacDonald Beach project in 1979 and Rotary Hospice House. In the last 50 years, the Rotary Club of Richmond has been instrumental in numerous community activities. These include major fundraising for the establishment of Rotary Hospice House on No. 4 Road and more than half a million dollars in direct donations to the Richmond Hospital Foundation. More recently, the club organized a highly successful Tribute to Seniors Gala. This event raised over $350,000 which benefitted Lions Manor, Rosewood Manor and Rotary Hospice House. In addition to its support to the Richmond community over the years, the club has hosted international student exchange programs, and provided financial support to international projects such as the Refilwe Community Project in South Africa and Shelter Boxes for disaster relief. The club will celebrate its accomplishments at a Gala Evening on April 15 at the River Rock Show Theatre. More than 350 guests are

Ensuring Quality & Service Exceeds Expectations

www.acemillwork.com

The Rotary Club of Richmond has had many significant achievements over the past half-century, but one of its greatest was the opening of Rotary Hospice House in 2005. In the early 1990s, Nancy Yurkovich had a vision of establishing a hospice as an alternative to hospital and home, a place where individuals and their families would be supported at end of life. As a citizen of Richmond and wife of a Rotarian, Nancy took the club on a journey to make this vision a reality, hosting community forums, family surveys and visits to other hospices. The Rotary Club of Richmond became convinced of the merit of this idea. With the leadership of Chuck Albert and Tony Yurkovich, the club made a commitment to develop a free-standing community-based hospice. The club invited the Salvation Army to partner on the project which resulted in joint capital fundraising activities, completion of a development plan for the hospice, the purchase of property, and the procurement

of operational funding from the provincial government through Vancouver Coastal Health. After many years of collaboration with leaders of the regional health authority, the Richmond Hospice Association and various community groups, they welcomed the first resident to Rotary Hospice House on

Sept. 30, 2005. Lesley Hicks, whose father spent his final days at Rotary Hospice House, spoke of “the loving surroundings that have become a lasting memory for us. “My dad was treated with such dignity, care and interest—he wasn’t a patient, he was a guest in this lovely home. It didn’t

matter how busy the staff were, they always found time to chat and to get to know my dad as a person... “His suite was so comfortable—the furniture not at all like a hospital—much more like a tasteful hotel room. We immediately noticed the handmade quilt on his bed—such thoughtful touches.”

The Rotary Club of Richmond’s 50th anniversary

Rotary has been a big supporter of the hospital

I

n 1966, Rotary Club of Richmond president Samuel Cohen had the privilege of being invited as the club’s representative to the official opening of Richmond Hospital. The donor plaque recognizing the club’s contribution was installed on the door of ward 510. The ward was known as the “Rotary Ward.” In 1968, the club purchased a cardiac monitor. In 1981, president Ray Inouye challenged the club to raise $150,000 for Richmond Hospital. This was significant because in the preceding years, the funds raised were generally $10,000 to $15,000 per year. The specific purpose was to acquire equipment for the Intensive Care Unit. The first $40,000 came from the generosity of four Richmond pioneers. Additional dollars came from reverse draw dinners, golf tournaments, art auctions, and donations from club members. The club raised $125,000 despite the fact that a once buoyant economy declined. The club continues to support the hospital and to date, has contributed approximately $350,000. June 29, 2004 was the official launch of the Celebrate with Lights fundraising drive. The lights were symbolically turned on in the hospital’s lobby. Funds raised from the Christmas Project were designated for the hospital’s Palliative Care Unit and the Rotary Hospice House in Richmond. Says Natalie Meixner, president and chief executive officer of Richmond Hospital Foundation: “On behalf of the doctors, nurses, health care team, patients, Richmond Hospital Foundation board of directors and staff, I am delighted to extend our sincere

congratulations to The Rotary Club of Richmond, as you celebrate 50 years of providing exceptional friendship and community service

throughout Richmond and beyond! “Over the past 50 years the club has donated over $350,000 to the Richmond Hospital.

You have helped fund so much, including cardiac monitors, ICU and Palliative Care equipment and upgrades just to name a few.���

Stories are told of building and donating playground facilities to Garden City School, giving a Comfort-Bus to Richmond Fire-Rescue, replacing a washed out 40-foot bridge for Heddy Rovenstein on River Road, and sponsoring students to Ottawa to participate in “Adventures in Citizenship.” Sense of Community is very strong with The Rotary Club of Richmond as shown with these few examples from earlier years: • Donated furniture to Anglican Church to renovate a home for wayward boys • Sponsored needy children to a summer camp, Camp Potlatch • Sponsored Carla Horst as a candidate in the Salmon Queen Festival • Donated money and time to help Junior Achievement • Donated walkie-talkies to Richmond Ambulance Service • Donated a bus to the YMCA for the Y-Bikers Program • Sponsored a “Sportsman’s Award Shield” • Donated $1000 to the Richmond Auxiliary Club • Furnished a room at the Vancouver Cancer Lodge • Repaired transmission of the Air Cadets’ bus • Donated two radio telephones to Paraplegics’ Auction • Participated in three sports awards for Richmond students • Donated to Richmond groups, Mentally Handicapped, Youth Band, Care Team • Donation of benches to Garry Point.

The Rotary Club of Richmond’s 50th anniversary Supporting the Richmond Christmas Fund For more than 30 years, the Rotary Club of Richmond has contributed to the Richmond Christmas Fund. This tradition was instigated by Rotarian Gordon McBurney, a member of Vancouver East Rotary Club, son of a Richmond pioneer, and a frequent visitor to the Rotary Club of Richmond. Years ago, Gordon reminded members of the need of many Richmond residents and challenged us to match his donation of $100 to the Christmas Hamper Fund (as it was then known). The club responded by raising $3,000. Year after year, Gordon came to the club

in early December, reminded members of the need in Richmond, donated his $100 and challenged the club to match it—and more! Although Gordon has passed away, the tradition continues, one which exemplifies the true spirit of Rotary “Service Above Self.” “Without organizations like yours, the Christmas Fund wouldn’t be able to provide low-income families with a special holiday meal, or children with gifts under the tree,” says Elizabeth Specht, executive director of Volunteer Richmond, which oversees the Christmas Fund.

Tribute to Seniors Gala raised $350,000 The Rotary Club of Richmond’s Tribute to Seniors Gala generated $350,000. The gala, held on April 20, 2008, recognized the significant contributions and sacrifices made by our seniors. Club president Peter Raju was appreciative of the community’s support. The funds were used to upgrade facilities at Lions Manor, the Rosewood Manor and the Rotary Hospice House. Among the donors that evening were Milan and Maureen Ilich and Eugene Greczmiel and family, who donated $100,000 each. There was an additional anonymous donation of $50,000.

Raju paid special tribute to Maureen and Milan for their support of many of the community’s fundraising projects. Raju said that he was inspired by Maureen and Milan’s kindness, generosity, and most importantly their appreciation for the work of volunteers and community leaders. More than 300 guests, including attorney general Wally Oppal, gave Milan and Maureen a standing ovation as Raju presented a Swarovski sculpture as a token of the community’s appreciation. Rotary also presented Paul Harris Fellowship Awards to Patsy and Hilary Hui, John Nicolaou, Max Fugman, the late Ben Dayson, and Jim Ratsoy for their

community minded spirit. Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap praised the Tribute to Seniors Gala at the Legislature. “Today I would like to recognize the charitable work of a group of Richmond individuals. On April 20th I had the honour of attending the Rotary Club of Richmond inaugural Tribute to Seniors Gala, which was the brainchild of Peter Raju, the club’s president. I ask the House to join me in thanking the Rotary Club of Richmond, Peter Raju, and all the Rotarians, sponsors and donors who helped to make this gala a tremendous success.”arians, sponsors and donors who helped to make this gala a tremendous success.”

The Rotary Club of Richmond’s 50th anniversary Rotary offers clubs and programs for youth and young adults Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are either community or university based. “More importantly, I became connected with amazing people from various Rotary Clubs, Rotaract Clubs, and in the community – my mentors and partners as we carry out our mission of service. The Rotary Club of Richmond has been instrumental and

fundamental in providing me with this opportunity to serve the community – an opportunity for which I am very grateful,” says member King-mong Chan. The Interact Club of Richmond was chartered in October, 1995 under the leadership of Richmond Rotary president Helge Nielsen and Rotarian Philip Li as advisor. Charter president Frederick Li, son of Philip, and the 25 charter members became

the first Interact Club in the City of Richmond. The objective of this community based club is to induce a stronger link among the youth between ages of 12 – 18 in School District 38. The Club remained active into the millennium years. •Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary’s leadership training program for young people. RYLA participants can be ages 14-30.

As technology keeps advancing, gadgets such as the heart rate (pulse rate) monitor become more accessible to the mainstream. Where once available only in specialty running stores, it may now be purchased most anywhere. A heart rate monitor is a personal monitoring device which allows you to measure in real time or

record your heart rate for later review or analysis. The device is usually comprised of two elements: a wireless chest strap transmitter and a wrist receiver. The chest strap detects your rate heart and sends that data to a wristwatch-style receiver, which displays your heart rate. They now combine speedand-distance-monitor features with a standard stop watch. The heart rate monitor

has come a long way from elite athletes using them to everyday runners. The first wireless heart rate monitor was invented in 1977 as a training aid for the Finnish national cross country ski team and as “intensity training” became a popular concept in athletic circles in the mid-80s, retail sales of wireless personal heart monitors started from 1983.

fitness Using a heart monitor From Page 19 In a recent interview with Vanda Borean, manager at Rackets and Runners in Vancouver, said the heart rate monitor can ďŹ t any budget “and the information about your workouts that they provide can be useful enough to far outweigh the initial cost.â€? The basic but still very valuable heart rate monitor costs $95. The average cost for most heart rate monitors is $150. When you add speed and distance functionality, the price can go up to $500. In a recent interview with Guy Schultz, associate head coach of University of Western Ontario cross country team, said: “The everyday runner would use the heart rate monitor as a personal coach. It can be useful as the runner sometimes would train too easy on the hard days and the easy days too hard.â€? Indeed, heart rate monitors can be useful from 5k to marathon but they won’t be for everyone. Schultz, after 30 years as an elite runner, doesn’t use the monitor as he is in tune with his body. I look at it this way: anything that helps you to run safely, without overextending yourself, is a good thing. If you have patience to read the instruction manual, understanding proper use, the heart rate monitor could become the best tool in your toolbox to help you achieve all of your running goals. Whether you’re training too hard or not hard enough, you’re going to ďŹ nd out. Christine Blanchette is a runner and writer. Follow her on Twitter (@ christineruns) and at www.christineruns.com.

One of Canada’s greatestever swimmers is hanging up his competitive swim cap. Richmond’s Brian Johns was hoping to compete in this summer’s London Games, which would have been a Canadian record fourth Olympic Games. But he found it too difficult to bounce back from knee surgery last year. “For me, it was a relatively easy decision to retire,” said Johns. “It was becoming apparent I wasn’t going to be able to come back from the knee injury and swim at the level I expected or needed to. I was trying pretty hard through January to train through the pain, but was limited in what I was able to do in the pool. I’d have some really big ups and downs.” Johns, 29, said he was trying recover from the anterior cruciate ligament injury in five months, when the usual recovery period is eight to 10 months. “I had a harsh reality talk with my coach (Swimming Canada’s Tom Johnson), knowing I wasn’t where I needed to be.” He successfully overcame a serious rotator-cuff tear while training for the 2004 Games, making a remarkable comeback after 18 months of rehabilitation to compete at the 2008 Games in Beijing. Johns seems content with retirement, already focusing his energy on an emerging coaching career. He is currently completing a master’s degree in coaching science at University of B.C. and assisting in coaching UBC’s varsity swim team. He’s also agreed to coach amateur swimming in White Rock. Johns, who also competed at the Summer Games in Sydney and Athens, is a former world record holder in the 400-metre individual medley. He set the short course record (four min-

Richmond lands 2014 Pan Pacific gymnastics World’s elilte will compete at oval by Don Fennell Sports Editor One of the most prestigous events on the gymnastics calendar is coming to the Richmond Olympic Oval which will host the 2014 Pan Pacifics. A young Team Canada, featuring Richmond gymnasts Robert Watson and Joshua Stuart, finished sixth at the 2012 event held recently in Seattle. While many countries sent their 2012 Olympic hopefuls, Canada’s focus is on the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro. With more than 350 athletes, coaches and dignataries from over 17 countries, this event is expected to give Richmond a huge economic injection. “It’s our first-large scale gymnastics event and the

prestige of this is something,” said Mike Romas, manager of sport hosting for the City of Richmond. Romas noted that NBC held the broadcast rights to a recent event held in Everett, Wash., televising a portion of the competition in prime time. The 2014 event in Richmond will be held over seven days, likely during the second week of April. Romas said typically athletes will arrive a day or two before the competition to get acclimatized. That will be followed by another three days of practice and four days of actual competition. The Everett event featured the entire U.S. gymnastics team that will compete at this summer’s Olympic Games in London.

Located in UniverCity at Simon Fraser University on Burnaby Mountain, the two high-rise towers will give buyers 360-degree views of Burrard Inlet, Indian Arm, the North Shore mountains and downtown Vancouver. “This is the last best view location on Burnaby Mountain,” says Jason Dolker, director of sales, marketing and service for Hungerford. The location is a draw for buyers to its proximity to everything without being right in the middle of it. “It’s a retreat from the city yet still connected,” Dolker says. “You get the

best of both worlds ... Nobody has our views ... we’re 1,300 feet above sea level. Nothing can compare.” Buyers looking for a greener lifestyle will find their perfect home at Altitude, as it will be part of one of the most sustainable communities in the Lower Mainland. Surrounded by 1,400 acres of forest, the building is designed to be about 45 per cent more efficient than traditional buildings and includes a three-bin kitchen recycling centre and a hydronic hot water heating system, among other energy-efficient features. For more information, visit www. hungerfordproperties.com/altitude or call 604-456-8883.

efficient ... it’s very livable.” Udzenija says that livability is one of the most important things to Concord, and this shows in every home they build. With shared amenities such as an entertainment kitchen, formal dining room, karaoke room, an indoor driving range and an outdoor putting green, Concord has spared no expense on keeping their residents happy and healthy. The fitness facility is particularly impressive, with a stateof-the-art cardio gym that is outfitted with the latest in Italian Kinesis fitness

equipment. “Our amenities set us apart,” says Udzenija. “No other development at this particular time has such an expansive amenities set.” The Met is opening for previews this week, but there has already been a lot of interest in the market. “We’ve been very excited about this for a long time,” Udzenija says. The grand opening will take place April 21. Home start at $279,900. For more information, visit www.themetburnaby. com or call 604-899-8800.

‘It’s all about the location’

Concord Pacific continues to impress with The Met by Kerry Vital

With the opening of their newest high-rise development, The Met in Burnaby, Concord Pacific is once again proving why they are an integral part of the Metro Vancouver real estate business. “It’s all about the location,” says Concord Pacific’s Project Marketing Manager Peter Udzenija. “There are parks everywhere, we’re kitty-corner to Metrotown and just a block and a half from SkyTrain. It’s comfortably close.” The condominium suites are spacious and come in a variety of oneand two-bedroom floorplans. There are some three-bedroom suites available as well on the upper floors. With 8’8’’ ceilings and open balconies or terraces in most homes that are perfect for enjoying your beautiful view, you will never feel cramped in your new space. Wideplank engineered hardwood flooring throughout the main living areas and plush carpeting in the bedrooms is standard, and both lend a touch of elegance to the home. The kitchens are full of thoughtful little details, such as a waste recycling bin and sliding basket under the kitchen sink, soft-close hardware on all the cabinets and a modern white marble tile backsplash that is perfectly complemented by wood veneer cabinetry with open glass display shelving and under-cabinet

We have everything that people want,” says Concord Pacific Project Marketing Manager Peter Udzenija. “It’s very livable.”

lighting. Depending on your plan, your kitchen will be lit by pot or track lighting, and the engineered stone countertop is almost too beautiful to mar by preparing food on it. The Miele appliances are a chef ’s dream, while the polished chrome Grohe faucet is yet another beautiful detail. The luxury extends to the bathrooms, which include engineered quartz stone countertops, a custom medicine cabinet with a mirror, shelves and built-in lighting, and white marble tile flooring that matches the tub/shower surround. Homeowners are given the option to have their home automated with Control4 technology or include air conditioning in their suite. “We have everything that people want,” Udzenija says. “Because of the shape of the building our plans are very

The expansive lobby of The Met, top, will include a lounge area for residents. Situated in the middle of parkland, above, it is easy for homeowners to feel a part of nature while still being close to every amenity they could possibly need, from the Metropolis at Metrotown shopping centre, left, to a convenient SkyTrain station.

Roots in community centre’s moms soccer program From Page 23

The Retros were established at the West Richmond Community Centre as part of the soccer mom’s program 12 years ago. Initially recognized more for their social endeavours than their on-field prowess, the Retros showed in a highly-competitive final just how skilled at the game they’ve become. Not blessed with a large roster, the Retros (with four players over the age of 50 and four in their mid-40s) had only 12 players to start the match. And one, Winnie Monk, was only available for the first 20 minutes

due to a previous coaching commitment. The defences of both teams played well (Richmond’s anchored by Tess Fairburn and Suzy MacPherson), limiting the scoring chances to few and far between. Scoreless until midway through the second half, Abbotsford scored first when the Retros were caught a little square at the back. But the Retros pushed forward through the midfield of Susan Shackles, Karen Ramsden, Rose Nishi and Janine Sandhu and were soon rewarded with the tying goal. After some

intense pressure and tireless work by Jacqui Dehnel and striker Meena Sandhu, Retros earned corner kick. Fairburn kicked a high ball into the box where Nicola Stokes was the first to react heading the ball smartly into the corner two minutes from full time. The game went straight to penalty kicks, with the Retros winning the coin to and opting to shoot first. Showing the poise of Messi, veteran Eva Tillyer calmly side-footed the ball into the net. After Abbotsford’s first shot went over the bar, it was Retros’ keeper Joanne Rooney’s turn but her kick was saved. This inspired Rooney who, excellent throughout the match, showed cat-like reflexes to stop Abbotsford’s second attempt. Fairburn then stepped up to make it 2-0. Rooney then made an even better save to keep Abbotsford off the scoresheet in the shootout, setting the stage for Stokes to confidently score the final goal.
