City says no to purchasing public art Vancouver Biennale artworks up for auction April 30; city won’t be a buyer by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Iconic public art captured countless times by camera-toting onlookers will begin disappearing from Richmond next month after civic politicians unanimously rejected an offer to buy any of it. On Monday city council sided with respondents of an anonymous on-
line survey, the majority of whom preferred the temporary Vancouver Biennale art installations to leave town rather than see the city spend up to $800,000 per piece. Council’s decision, which must still be ratiﬁed next Monday, will open up the art to public bids at an auction April 30. Among the artwork that will disappear is Wind Waves in Garry Point. The red-painted steel sphere was the most popular piece among survey respondents—but not popular enough to save it. “I respect the people’s input. They don’t want us to buy anything, and I say we don’t buy anything,” said Coun. Evelina Halsey-Brandt. “They said no. Good enough for me.”
But the longtime councillor believes there was a “misconception” among survey respondents about where the cash to purchase the works would come from. The money would have been drawn from a dedicated public art fund, bankrolled by developers, she said. The city collected 2,810 surveys, completed online or submitted on paper. Of the responses, 76 per cent disagreed with any purchase, while 21 per cent favoured buying art. The Vancouver Biennale public art pieces—which included seven sculptures in Richmond—proved a source of heated discussion on letters pages and in coffee shops since the ﬁrst sculpture arrived in October 2009. Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head was the most
Survey results: Public art favoured by respondents •None: 1,992 •Wind Waves: 564 •Water #10: 344 •Doors of Knowledge: 257 •Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head: 139 •Heads: 121 •Other: 66 controversial, while others questioned the appeal of Heads. Coun. Sue Halsey-Brandt also voted against the purchase but was nonetheless “very disappointed.” See Page 3

Great news deserves to be passed along. And so do proﬁts. Every year, Vancity shares an equivalent of 30% of its net proﬁts with members and communities through our Shared Success program. So that’s why we’re pleased to announce that we will share a record $23.5 million this year, our biggest payout ever. Here’s a breakdown of what our members will receive:
• 6.00% dividend on membership shares • 1.46% bonus on deposit interest earned* • 1.46% rebate on loan interest paid* • 0.05% bonus on investments** The simple calculation is, the more business you do with Vancity, the more you get back.
When we make record proﬁts, we share.

City steps up war on pipeline by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Civic politicians are stepping up their assault against a controversial gas pipeline that would cross Lulu Island and supply jets at Vancouver International Airport. Coun. Sue HalseyBrandt raised the issue again Monday, a week after city council approved comments for the B.C. Environmental Assessment Ofﬁce, which is reviewing the proposal. “We’ve opposed this since its inception... but we haven’t been very clear with the route that would most beneﬁt Richmond,” said HalseyBrandt. City council agreed to clarify its preference— that the existing pipeline be upgraded, if necessary, or that jet fuel be barged directly to Sea Island. Halsey-Brandt said now city council needs to meet with Richmond’s three Liberal MLAs to stop the plan. Despite agreeing with his council colleague, Coun. Bill McNulty questioned what a meeting would accomplish. “We don’t want the line on the island at all. I have a feeling it will be imposed on us anyway, one way or another.” A growing legion of residents are opposed to the project, according to public comments on the Environmental Assessment Ofﬁce website. Richmond also has support from former Delta-Richmond East MP John Cummins, who said in a letter he also

has concerns. “The position taken by the City of Richmond has my full support. There can be no room for complacency. It is always incumbent upon us all to ensure the environmental health and safety of our communities.” The Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation is proposing to build a 15-kilometre jet fuel pipeline connecting the airport with a new fuel receiving facility in the South Arm near Riverport. Project proponents say the new pipeline is needed to satisfy the airport’s increasing thirst for jet fuel— currently supplied by a pipeline that travels

from the Chevron reﬁnery in North Burnaby through North Richmond. As many as 25
trucks per day deliver the rest of the fuel to the airport from Washington State.
Provincial ministers are scheduled to decide the fate of the project by Oct. 1.
The MLA whose riding could be crossed by a jet fuel pipeline, fed by barges in the South Arm, said she is doing a “full court press” to sink the plan. Richmond East MLA Linda Reid said the owner of the existing pipeline had offered to upgrade its fuel delivery service to the airport, but that and other options—14 in all—weren’t fully considered by the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation. “The issue isn’t capacity. I believe the issue is ownership. They wish to own their own line. You don’t need to drag it all the way across East Richmond, and you don’t need to have that kind of trafﬁc in the South Arm of the Fraser River, which just experienced the best salmon run they’ve had in probably a 100 years,” said Reid. The Environmental Assessment Ofﬁce review must focus on risk assessment, she said, noting that risk is “too great.” “Aviation fuel in a salmon river is just wrong, and the potential for that is there,” said Reid. Reid said she’s spent lots of time talking with the previous provincial minister of environment—who, along with two other ministers, will ultimately decide the project’s fate. Now she’s bending the ear of Terry Lake, who was appointed Minister of Environment March 14. “We’re going to get him here as quickly as we can and see what we can do to imprint upon him that this is not the option that should be considered,” she said. “We’re going to continue to do the full court press and see how we do.” Richmond Centre MLA Rob Howard noted Richmond council’s opposition to the plan. “The sense that I get is that they don’t think they’re being listened to,” he said. “It sounds to me like the city thinks there are other options that are viable, I don’t know that, but there may well be. So let’s increase the communications on what those options are.” Richmond Steveston MLA John Yap said he understands concerns from the community. “To be frank, I do share some of their concerns. My ﬁrst response is the assessment should run it’s course. The process is there for a reason,” he said. Project spokesperson Adrian Pollard was unavailable for comment. Public comments are still being accepted at www. eao.gov.bc.ca or call 250-356-7441 for information.
Wonderful opportunity to buy art has been missed From Page 1 “A wonderful opportunity to purchase international art has been missed,” she said. Some council members and survey respondents suggested the city should focus on local art, or at least Canadian or First Nations pieces. But Sue Halsey-Brandt said she’d like Richmond to have both. “I think there’s a place both for local art as well as international art. I don’t think you can compare them—they’re just different.” The two-week survey took place in February. Given the survey’s anonymous format, city staff acknowledged they couldn’t limit the number of submissions per person. Mayor Malcolm Brodie, along with councillors Harold Steves
“This incredibly beautiful sculpture has been a standout favourite of the exhibition...” - Miriam Blume and Bill McNulty, opposed the consultation process. Brodie said Monday the public’s answer was predictable. “Getting this result it gives us impetus to stretch our dollars. I think that we can do far greater things at a smaller level...” The Vancouver Biennale hoped one of the sculptures—namely Yvonne Domenge’s Wind Waves—
would remain in Richmond as a legacy piece. “This incredibly beautiful sculpture has been a standout favourite of the exhibition, and (there) was an enormous opportunity for the city to purchase a piece by the artist just as she emerges as an international superstar,” said spokesperson Miriam Blume. Blume said the value and prestige of Domenge’s work will “rise exponentially” as four of her steel sculptures went on display in Chicago’s Millennium Park yesterday. Nonetheless, Blume said the City of Richmond has been a “wonderful” partner in the public art exhibition. Wind Waves could still stay in the region if it attracts bids from a private buyer later this month.

READING The benchmark price of a Richmond house topped $1.1 million for the ďŹ rst time ever.
Staff Reporter The benchmark price of a Richmond house topped $1.1 million for the ďŹ rst time ever, though there are indications that prices are ďŹ nally plateauing after a scorching hot three-month stretch. According to the latest ďŹ gures from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, the benchmark price of a typical Richmond single detached home reached $1.119 million last month. Thatâ€™s a 233.8 per cent increase over the last decade, the largest increase in Greater Vancouver, topping Vancouver-Westâ€™s 202.4 per cent, Maple Ridgeâ€™s 203.9 per cent and Port Coquitlamâ€™s 206.8 per cent.
Compared to January and February, the average selling price of a house dropped slightly to $988,000 in March down from the $1.03 million a month earlier. Richmond realtor Tony Ling said the market certainly has levelled off, with activity â€œnot as hectic as the ďŹ rst couple of months.â€? He explained that the mad market which began in late November and continued through last month may be explained by a mad rush to purchase property prior to rule changes for mortgages. He noted that mortgage rates increased this week. Fuelling the white-hot January and February may have been pentup demand over Christmas and New Yearâ€™s, he said. Today, the number of houses,

townhomes and condos listed for sale are at near-record levels, but demand remains high as well, Ling said. Take a close look at the housing price index for Greater Vancouver, he said, and it shows house prices climbing at a steep rate â€œthat canâ€™t continue indeďŹ nitely,â€? Ling said. While Ling doesnâ€™t see a large price correction, he does see the market softening up quite a bit. â€œOur market has had a very strong start to the spring season,â€? said board president Rosario Setticasi. â€œWith home sales above 4,000 and nearly 7,000 home listings added to the MLS in March, itâ€™s clear that home buyers and sellers view this as a good time to be active in their local housing market.â€?
Report Cards Shouldnâ€™t Be a Source of Stress! The ďŹ nal report card is an important indicator of your childâ€™s progress this Report Cards Shouldnâ€™t Be a Source of Stress! Your childâ€™s report card is an important indicator of his or her progress at school this year, but along with it may come surprising and even unwelcome news. Poor grades are a source of stress and worry for parents, and to add to this, changing expectations and reporting standards mean that report cards are often ďŹ lled with comments that parents ďŹ nd difďŹ cult to interpret. Fortunately, a report card serves as only a single snapshot of a childâ€™s progress up to a given point and does not offer the complete picture of a childâ€™s potential. Seema Ahluwalia of Oxford Learning Centre in Richmond recommends that parents consider their childâ€™s report card as an indicator of things to come. If there are any issues with poor grades, take action now.
â€œParents need to remember that there is plenty of time now and even during the summer to get back on track,â€? says Seema. Founded in 1984, Oxford Learning uses innovative approaches to learning that have helped thousands of students to reach their educational goals. Customized programs based on the science of cognitive development help children to develop the skills that they need to succeed in school while they develop the conďŹ dence that they need to succeed in life.

It’ t s a ‘Growing Problem’ in Our Community! RESULTS OF TOPPING
STOP TOPPING TREES
Disease enters via the stub ends, Ö making the tree a short-lived and potentially dangerous one.
TREES FOR FLOOD PREVENTION
Ö Prune It Right! Four Easy Steps
Make mostly thinning cuts (removal of branches right back to the parent branch or trunk)
1. Remove dead or damaged branches. 2. Remove suckers and watersprouts.
Avoid creating stub ends.
3. Remove badly placed branches: t crossing or rubbing each other t growing into centre of tree t growing into walkways or roof gutters
If a branch is growing into your eaves, don’t shorten it, remove it!
TREES FOR NOISE REDUCTION
Prune It Right! Here’s How
Make your cuts just outside the branch collar (a slight thickening where the branch joins its parent branch or trunk). Flush cuts destroy the tree’s defense zone.
Now stand back and admire the great pruning job. Your tree will look airy and graceful, and your pruning job will stay done much longer than stub-end pruning.
PLEASE! Prune It Right!

Chum salmon from Japan not part of Canadian ďŹ shery by Michael Mui Contributor Wild Pacific salmon coming in from radiationaffected areas of Japan should not impact local commercial ďŹ sheries, according to Fisheries and Oceans Canada. â€œMost of the commercial salmon ďŹ sheries take place in â€Ś waters along the coast,â€? said Lara Sloan, a communications advisor with the federal department. She said Canadian ďŹ sheries are restricted by the internationally-enforced Exclusive Economic Zone, a 370 kilometre limit to how far local ďŹ shers can ďŹ nd their catch. Findings from Vancouverbased researcher North PaciďŹ c Anadromous Fish Commission concur with the results. Based on nearly 50 years of salmon migratory research, the commission concludes that while Japanese Chum salmon travel within 740 kilometres of the B.C. coast, that is still twice the distance local ďŹ sheries are allowed to go. â€œThis was something established in the â€™70s,â€? said Dr. Nancy Davis. â€œThere is no legal ďŹ shing for salmon in international waters.â€? She said despite the restriction zone, most ďŹ sheries commonly focus in the river mouths where the salmon are spawned, further reducing any risk of contamination. Minute amounts of radiation have been detected along the B.C. coast since late March. According to Health Canada, the increase is less than naturally
occurring levels of radiation in the rain, but has been found to accumulate in seaweed by Simon Fraser University researcher Kris Starostaâ€”Health Canada isnâ€™t taking any chances. â€œAs a precautionary measure, Health Canada deployed â€Ś nine monitoring stations on Canadaâ€™s West Coast,â€? said spokesperson Gary Holub.
The monitoring stations will cost the federal government $136,000 to operate annually, and adds to the existing six atmospheric monitoring stations already installed in B.C. As of April 1, all food and animal feed products from Japan will be rejected unless accompanied by documentation verifying the productsâ€™ safety.

Contributor An overwhelming majority of Lower Mainland residents are risking food poisoning from undercooked meats, according to a new study from Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health. Their message: stick a thermometer in your food before you eat it. Out of 1,000 Lower Mainland residents, only 140 bother to check food temperatures before consumption. At the same time, only 20 per cent of residents bother to check fridge temperatures for proper food storage. Chicken and ground beef are particularly risky meats and should be cooked to at least 74˚C, while food should be stored at temperatures of four degrees or less. “Temperature checks are really important in preventing food-borne illnesses at home,” said medical health ofﬁcer Dr. John Carsley in a press release. It’s a fact echoed by Health Canada and local culinary instructors. Owner and chef David Robertson of Vancouver’s The Dirty Apron Cooking School says a food thermometer is “indispensible” in the kitchen. “It’s a tool every home cook should have,” he said. The thermometers range in price from $15 for a basic tool to $129 for top-shelf models. There are up to several hundred thousand cases of food poisoning in B.C. every year.

SMART boards at Brighouse are like futuristic blackboards by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter First came blackboards and chalk, then whiteboards and dry-erasable felts, and even overhead projectors with transparencies. Now on display is the future of classroom teaching, and it’s found inside each class at the brand new $16.4 million Samuel Brighouse elementary school. SMART boards, which are like giant iPads, were installed at a cost of nearly $140,000 in all 17 classrooms at Brighouse elementary. The interactive boards allow students to use their hands to shrink and enlarge (pinch and reverse pinch), select (a simple touch) and to move around (swipe) full-colour graphics as well as electronically write on the speciallyequipped whiteboards that sit at the front of each classroom, ﬂanked by traditional whiteboards. “The installation of SMART product is a very progressive move for the Richmond School District and the ﬁrst installation of its kind in the district,” said SMART’s public relations manager Marina Geronazzo. Former Brighouse principal Gillian Rudge, now at Tomekichi Homma Elementary, has seen the beneﬁts of SMART boards for many years. The ﬁrst one was brought in four years ago, after the school won a national contest, and in the years since, Homma has purchased several more thanks to the fundraising efforts of the school’s Parent Advisory Council, she said. Elementary school children have grown up in the digital age, and don’t know that there was a time before computers were in every household, she said. The SMART boards are very motivating, very visual and helps teachers get students attention easier, Rudge said. In some parts of the world, earlier versions have been in use for a decade, she said. The fun and educational experience isn’t reserved for the older set at Brighouse. Inside that school’s kindergarten
Brand new Brighouse School opens The downpour didn’t dampen the excitement as parents and grandparents escorted students into the brand new $16.4 million Samuel Brighouse elementary school which opened for the first time Monday morning. “Wow,” said one wideeyed youngster. “Look at that,” said another, looking up. “This is so awesome.” Even the new school’s distinctive odour didn’t go unnoticed: “What’s that smell?” one young student said. B.C. Education minister George Abbott raved about the new school’s design and energy efficiency. With in-floor heating, a geo-exchange energy source, solar hot-water heating, triple-glazed windows and green roofs with stormwater ponds, the designers of the new facility certainly had Mother Nature in mind. —by Martin van den Hemel

class is the SMART Table, what’s billed as the world’s ﬁrst multi-user, multi-touch interactive learning centre for early education, according to SMART. While the SMART boards aren’t yet up and running at Brighouse—ﬁngers are crossed that they could become active next week—students from the school are anxious to get started after having sampled the device in the school’s library earlier this school year. The interactive whiteboards, used in daily instruction by the Toronto District School Board, are credited with a “substantial increase in math achievement” at the third and sixth grade according to the Educational Quality Assessment of Ontario. A 2007 report from the United Kingdom found that students made the equivalent of 2.5 to ﬁve months additional progress in mathematics. “Teachers around the world use SMART products to transform teaching and learning,” said Vin Seunath, director of training and professional development at SMART. “The SMART Board interactive whiteboard has become a core classroom product driving adoption across schools, districts and countries for the last few years.”

Two Richmond ﬁrms among WorkSafeBC’s top 10 most penalized in 2010 Teck Metals worker loses four fingers in workplace mishap by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Teck Metals Ltd. was ﬁned $75,000 by WorkSafeBC last year after a worker lost four ﬁngers in a mishap. The Richmond ﬁrm did not appeal the penalty following the incident last spring, and was one of several local businesses cited in WorkSafeBC’s 2010 enforcement report. According to the report, a Teck Metals worker was transferring an industrial solution between two large tanks, both of which contained a rotating shaft and an impeller with four blades that was neither turned off nor locked out. “The hose the worker was using to perform the transfer became entangled in one tank’s impeller and began to wrap around the shaft, pulling the worker’s hand in between the hose and the shaft. Four of the worker’s ﬁngers were severed,” the report states. Teck Metals was ﬁned for failing to ensure the “energy isolating device was locked out and that the rotating parts were guarded,” and for failing to

“provide its workers with the information, instruction, training and supervision necessary to ensure their health and safety.” The ﬁne was the sixth largest in B.C. last year. Richmond’s Peter Kiewit Infrastructure Co. was in late November ﬁned $75,000 for failing to provide its workers access to a certiﬁed ﬁrst aid attendant when a propane explosion occurred at a remote construction camp. “This was a repeated violation,” the report notes. Also among the top 20 ﬁnes last year was one handed to Richmond’s Foley’s Candies Ltd. It was ﬁned $44,5050 after a worker’s hand was seriously injured when it was caught in the mechanism of a chocolate depositing machine. “This ﬁrm failed to ensure that the machine was effectively locked out to make it safe for maintenance work,” the report states. A number of Richmond rooﬁng ﬁrms were also ﬁned after their employees were found working without any form of fall protection while on the sloped roofs of buildings. Broadway Roofing Company was ﬁned $33,560.38, Great West Coast Rooﬁng Ltd. was ﬁned $23,958, and Samra Bros. Rooﬁng Ltd., was ﬁned $16,877.

EDITORIAL: Public art legacy lost
f civic politicians had a ball to drop in their three-year term, they did it Monday. Public art continues to be a sticky issue at city hall, and the fumbling of this ﬁle continued with a unanimous decision to give up the chance to buy one or more iconic sculptures from the Vancouver Biennale. For two years, Richmond enjoyed an elevated cultural status, seen as a city that embraces public art. And it was for all to see one year ago at the 2010 Winter Olympics. What visitor to our fair city didn’t snap a photo of Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself at the Top of Lenin’s Head near the oval, Wind Waves in Garry Point or the heads—Cabeza Vainilla, Cabeza Ordoba, Cabeza Chiapas—by Lansdowne Station? Sculpture sites became destinations and places to take out-of-town guests, instead of spots tourists might only happen upon public art. In recent years, city ofﬁcials have given art a higher status. A public art fund was created for developers to contribute to. That account balance now stands at $650,000, and is earmarked for the purchase of public art. The city also now boasts art awards and a public art planner, who costs taxpayers nearly $100,000 each year. The city also contributed resources toward the installation of Biennale works, which will begin to leave town after the April 30 auction. Yet, when it came to gauging public opinion on the purchase of the works, city council

agreed to let anonymous naysayers rule the day. Ultimately, the purchase decision was left to an online survey— where multiple responses from the same individual are a near certainty. On Monday city council members played it safe politically, shrugging their shoulders
and agreeing with the majority of respondents not to buy any art. Many respondents said the money should be used for other things—even reducing the hit of the provincial harmonized sales tax. This despite city council having set aside the money for the purchase of public art.
Will this money ever be spent? If it is, will city council again harvest opinions through an online survey— with predictably the same result? City council had the opportunity to build a unique legacy by bringing international art to a city known for its international population, but it dropped the ball.
What would happen if we were responsible for our own garbage?
Shades of Green Arzeena Hamir
or those of you who know me personally, you will have heard that I lost a major set of babysitters to a move.
My in-laws relocated from Richmond to a rural property in Courtenay. And while I mourn the loss of their help, we have been making monthly trips to the Island to visit and help out on the farm. There’s been much newness for my in-laws to get
used to. Water is pumped from a well and while there’s plenty right now, when we all descend on the house in the summer, we’ll have to ration our use and stagger some very short showers. The majority of the heat comes from a wood stove and no more quick trips to the corner store to pick up milk or sugar. Meals and shopping have to be planned well in advance. But probably the biggest change to get used to is the fact that the property doesn’t have access to regular garbage pick-up. Organics are composted on the farm. Paper is burnt in the wood stove. But all the glass, plastic and miscellaneous that is brought in must somehow make its way off the property. There is a recycling depot a couple of miles down the road, which allows all the glass and hard plastics to
be returned. But styrofoam, soft plastic and miscellaneous packaging that can’t be sent there must be driven into Cumberland to the town dump. Wow has that changed the way we shop. Suddenly, the “stuff ” that food and household items are packaged in becomes really important. It’s amazing how quickly you can ﬁll up a garbage bag if you don’t pay attention to this. Now, instead of buying individually packaged yogurts, we buy larger containers. The goal is to one day make our own yogurt and not even have to worry about this stream of waste. Plastic milk jugs are chosen over the cardboard ones since these are more easily returned. When we do make the trip into town for a meal, we bring containers for the leftovers so that we don’t have to deal with what the restaurant
Suddenly, the “stuff ” that food and household items are packaged in becomes really important.
gives us. What would happen if all of us had to account for the garbage we brought into our lives? Instead of magically disappearing once a week with curbside pick-up, we would each be responsible for our own waste. Suddenly, we’d be demanding that manufacturers either take back their packaging or come up with less of it. That’s exactly what Vancouverites Grant Baldwin and Jen Rustemeyer did.
For an entire year, they endeavoured to create no garbage. Lucky for us, they were ﬁlmmakers and were able to chronicle this sometimes hilarious adventure. On Thursday, April 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ralph Fisher Auditorium, the Richmond Food Security Society will be screening their movie, The Clean Bin Project. Admission is by donation. After the screening, Jen will be on hand to answer questions and provide great tips for reducing our impact on the planet. The event comes just in time for Earth Day. Bring your friends and family and let’s all come up with great ideas for reducing garbage in Richmond. Arzeena Hamir is co-ordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society.

letters Bob Rae’s $300-million election? Editor: So here we go. Another $300-million general election. Polls suggest that a majority of us don’t want it and don’t think it’s necessary. The likely outcome? A few seats change hands here and there, but overall? Another minority government, with the likelihood of another $300-million election within two years. Surely the money could have been better spent on health care, education, sustainable energy, reducing the cost of home heating, improving pay and conditions for emergency services and armed
forces, or other worthy causes. So what do opposition parties gain by forcing an election now? An article published Feb. 27 in The Toronto Star (“Persichilli: Partisan and personal interests behind election talk”) and reviewed that day in The Globe and Mail (“Election timing conspiracy revealed”) suggests that the election is the result of internal party politics. Well worth a read. If, as the most recent polls suggest, Michael Ignatieff goes down to defeat, this would open the way for an Ofﬁcial Opposition led by Bob Rae, something

many left-leaning Liberals would strongly support. Failure to make inroads would give hard working NDP leader Jack Layton pause to consider an honourable and welldeserved retirement. Even Ontario Conservatives who remember the troubles of the Rae Days would be happier to see Mr. Rae leading the Opposition. So it looks like this election is more about the needs of politicians rather than the needs of the people. That’s a pity. We could have waited and saved our money. Adrian Wade Steveston
Remember the share the road Editor: Early one morning I came from Ladner to walk the Iona Jetty with my dog and I was subjected to a number of groups of bicyclists along the road out to the jetty. There were about two large groups and they were just puttering along taking up almost
both lanes of the road making it impossible to safely pass them. I wanted to avoid any confrontation by them by beeping my horn, but they knew darn well I was behind them, but they still failed to move over even enough to let me pass! How incredibly rude is that? I
guess they forget who has paid licensing fees to operate my vehicle on that road! In future, why don’t we all try to get along on those roads and have the common decency to at least move over enough for me to pass and not be road hogs. Tina Doughty Ladner
It appears that a number of key people including Mayor Malcolm Brodie, MP Alice Wong and NDP candidate Dale Jackaman do not have a good grasp of the issues related to the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation’s proposal to ship fuel up the Fraser River and then pipe it across Richmond to the airport. First of all there are not two environmental reviews taking place that would give us greater comfort as noted by Wong. The airport fuel group opted to go to the provincial review process although it is a federal harbour, governed by federal shipping laws, supplies a federal airport and will affect federally protected resources including the ﬁsh and migratory birds. Could our local MP Wong please tell us why her government does not mandate a full and proper federal review of this proposal? Why was the airport fuel group allowed to opt for a less rigorous provincial environmental review that allows each citizen only two minutes of public hearing time? Is it because the provincial process has only rejected one proposal in all of its life and can be seen more as a facilitator and expediter of environmental reviews? We need to recall that some 25 years ago, the airport fuel users proposed barging Arco fuel from Cherry Point up the North Arm of the Fraser River to YVR. A properly constituted public federal environmental review process rejected it at that time. Why was there a more thorough federal review process in place some 25 years ago than now, under the Conservative government? The Mayor Brodie solution is to put the facility out on Sturgeon’s Bank near the airport. That alternative is simply irresponsible. The estuary has already been greatly impacted by over 100 years of industrial development. The edge of the bank is subject to marine slides and any facility would thus be built on unstable soils which would
greatly impact the very sensitive ﬁsh and wildlife habitat that many of us have worked for 40 years to protect. A facility there would be exposed to storms, and spills would wash onto sensitive estuary marshes and Iona Park. If another source of fuel is required, the only rational option is to go to facilities where we already have fuel handling in place such as the Cherry Point Arco reﬁnery and the Chevron reﬁnery in Burrard Inlet. Kinder Morgan says their pipeline from Burnaby to YVR is in good condition but the airport says it is too small. Simply install a larger pipeline in an existing right of way and / or build a new pipeline from the Arco reﬁnery to YVR. Pipelines are relatively safe in comparison to ship and road transport of large quantities of jet fuel. The option of going to the two local reﬁneries with pipelines is logical in that the environmental footprint is much reduced, it is safer, will not harm the estuary and that is indeed where the jet fuel is produced. Under no circumstance should we permit any fuel handling facilities in an already stressed Fraser River estuary, which is an estuary of global signiﬁcance and part of our natural heritage. It’s ironic that as this proposal is being considered, the Cohen Commission is examining what is causing the decline of Fraser River sockeye populations. More fuel tanker trafﬁc in the Fraser, spilled jet fuel, giant storage tanks near the dyke on earthquake sensitive soils and more jet fuel consumption causing more global warming will not help Fraser River salmon stocks and will do nothing to add to our quality of life. At a time when we must reduce excessive consumption of fossil fuels, the airport must also reduce its carbon footprint if we are serious about our planet’s future. Otto E.

Richmond’s Linda Leong Sum is a martial arts expert with an ensemble role in ‘The Forbidden Phoenix,’ now playing at Gateway Theatre.
Good and evil stage battle Emily Cooper photo Michael Dufays is the Monkey King and Kazumi Evans is the Phoenix in a modern musical drawing on Chinese mythology, opening Friday at Gateway Theatre.
by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter
t’s load-in day at Gateway Theatre. Set pieces have arrived and technicians are adjusting equipment that will light up what could be Gateway Theatre’s most colourful show of the season. The Forbidden Phoenix packs plenty of promise, in presentation and plot. Richmond’s Linda Leong Sum, a shining light herself, is among the cast in Marty Chan’s masterpiece, an East-meets-West musical six years and 33 drafts in the making. So complex and symbol-packed, the playwright openly wondered whether his story would ever make it to the stage. Sum will do her part to make it happen by drawing on her martial arts experience as a member of the ensemble cast. “It’s the kind of show where you can enjoy it if you knew all the history, or you can enjoy it without knowing the history,” says Sum in an interview.
The Forbidden Phoenix •On until April 23 at Gateway Theatre •Book and lyrics by Marty Chan; lyrics, music and orchestration by Robert Walsh •Tickets, $27.50 to $43, at gatewaytheatre.com or call 604-270-1812 Employing martial arts, acrobatics and an orchestra stuffed with everything from the Chinese pipa to the acoustic guitar, The Forbidden Phoenix tells the story of a father who must leave his son behind to ﬁnd a better life in Canada. Once there he discovers it’s all much more complicated than ﬁnding fertile soil. Based loosely around a fable about the Monkey King—a character from Chinese mythology and opera—Chan recast the Monkey King as an immigrant in a fantasy world that has “one foot in Chinese opera and the other in Canadian history.” The result is a script that balances mythology and history, serving as a metaphor for a dark part of Canada’s history. Chan’s story ﬁxes on the plight of
Canada’s ﬁrst Chinese immigrants brought here to work on the railroad in the 1800s, keying on a father’s sacriﬁce to provide for his family. The mix of mask-driven Peking Opera and Western musical theatre with visual elements such as martial arts instantly appealed to Linda Leong Sum. Sum holds a third-degree black belt in aikido, a Japanese martial art whose hallmark is defence. A former lawyer, Sum is a human rights consultant and administrator, who ﬁts musicals in her schedule when it permits. This one just happens to involve grappling. “There’s a lot of ﬁghting in this show. Some of it is empty-handed and some of it is with weapons. It’s been a really fun show to do,” she says. She began training in aikido in her 20s and was instantly hooked. “I started it and just loved it. Any physical activity gives you awareness of your own body and what your strengths and weaknesses are. That was what I thought was great about martial arts, and doing aikido speciﬁcally.” In The Forbidden Phoenix Sum
Richmond’s Linda Leong Sum ties on black belt for new Marty Chan musical plays a variety of roles in the ensemble cast, including a peasant, soldier and guard. Her martial arts skills have been called upon by directors before, but previous scenes haven’t
Open dialogue On March 28, Kwantlen Polytechnic University held a public town hall panel discussion on the experience of an immigrant. The panel consisted of Dr. Colin Green, a Chinese history instructor at Kwantlen, Joyce Lam, cofounder of the Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre, Ken Lum, a local artist and Marty Chan, the author/playwright who wrote The Forbidden Phoenix, which opens at Gateway Theatre tonight. Chan believes that open dialogue will help with self-identification in the Chinese community. “The more you talk about issues of immigration, of racism, of identity and how you fit in, the better you can define what your community is and how you fit into the greater community. If you don’t talk, then you don’t engage.” —by Kyle Benning
involved combat. “This is a ﬁght. This is good and evil. I think the whole stage combat aspect of it is really an integral aspect of this show—and you’ll see it throughout the show.” Memories of childhood bullies drove the playwright to initially pen the script. It’s now a notch on his belt in a personal mission to speak out against prejudice. It’s that theme of injustice that Sum’s family knows ﬁrsthand. Her great-grandfather immigrated from China in 1903 as a 17-year-old, paying a $100 head tax for the opportunity. “It’s really interesting to me to see the illustration of that kind of treatment. I think (Phoenix) does it, not in a whiny, preachy kind of fashion. It just really illustrates the effect on the people that were involved in terms of separation of their families,” she said. After joining the show Sum began researching her great-grandfather’s history and found detailed records of his arrival. “What’s really intriguing is the historical background that forms the basis of this story. That’s part of the reason I got involved in the show.”

arts & entertainment Crime writers unite Grand Ballroom Steveston writer Robin Spano will join fellow B.C. authors Don Hauka and Joan Donaldson-Yarmey for a jointholds Japan reading at Vancouver Public Library Monday, April 11. fundraiser by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It’s been nearly four weeks since the devastating March 11 earthquake and tsunami that decimated parts of Japan, but locals aren’t forgetting about the ongoing plight of victims of the natural disaster. The Grand Ballroom, at 12200 Riverside Way, is holding a special fundraising dance this Saturday night from 8 p.m. to midnight, featuring local dancers at their best. Andy Wong said this was simply a matter of doing what’s right, and helping others at a time of need. “What prompted us to do this? Simply why not? We do have a good number of Japanese students and patrons, but that was not the main reason...We just have an opportunity to help others here and we should do it,” he said in an e-mail. The evening will feature two shows, the first a performance by the Nora Pickett-coached Eire Born Irish Dancers, who train regularly at the studio. The second show features 18 of the best ballroom dance couples in the Paciﬁc Northwest in what’s called at Team Match exhibition. The couples will be organized into three teams of six couples, who will be dancing in front of a panel of judges. They will perform all ﬁve Latin dances and the ﬁve standards dances. “It is all for fun and team bragging rights,” Wong said. Wong is hopeful they’ll have a full house of 250 people, which would raise $5,000. Tickets are $20, and are available by calling 604-273-3130, or visiting www.grandballroom.com. All proceeds are earmarked for the Canadian Red Cross Relief Fund.
The Crime Writers of Canada authors will read from their latest works and take part in a question and answer session. The presentation, entitled “the Three Tremors: A Trio of Unabashedly Canadian Sleuths,” is part of the library’s Popular Reading Library program. Spano is author of the 2010 crime novel Dead Politician
Society, whose central character Clare Vengel returns this fall in the novel Death Plays Poker, slated for release October 2011. The free program runs 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Peter Kaye room at the library’s central branch, 350 West Georgia St., Vancouver. For more information, call 604-331-3687.

Twenty years of Cravings
Food for Thought Arlene Kroeker
â€™m a pasta guy,â€? Angelo Khoshaba tells me as we reminisce about the menu at Cravings Bistro in Marpole.
The restaurant just celebrated its 20th anniversary and over the years things have changed: menus, dĂŠcor, staff, (and now the location of the entrance). Angeloâ€™s smile and hospitality remains the same, and lasagna is still on the menu (under â€œFrom Then to Nowâ€?). Surrounded by low-rise condos, just a block from Oak Street, and a couple blocks from Marine Drive, Cravings has become a neighbourhood â€œCheers.â€? In the beginning, Crav-
ings served soup and sandwiches. They grew into a wild jungle, then developed into a Mediterranean wine cellar, and have now adapted a global maturity. Iâ€™ve enjoyed every stage. Even the advertising has matured. In the beginning, Angelo advertised on an old VW beetle he drove around town. Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ve seen the newer model on the streets of Richmondâ€” where Angelo and his family live. I return to the place of memories on Friday night. On my left is the more subdued, classic dining room, known as The Atrium, with high ceilings and comfy chairs. However, Iâ€™m here for the live music, so I veer right to Cava, the cozy, inviting lounge. Singles at the well-appointed bar and groups of two to 10 ďŹ ll the room. Age groups range from early 20s to blue rinse. (I appreciate a restaurant that attracts a diverse age group.) Almost 8 p.m. and the Laura Crema Trio takes their place in front of the
bay windows. My friend and I order from the tapas menuâ€”Grilled Polenta with Wild Mushrooms, Baja Scallops, and Prosciutto Flatbread. Lena, our server, suggests Salmon Nori and we agree. Chef Dmitri Aranov does an excellent job of fusing ďŹ‚avours and textures. I love the fact that Iâ€™m offered food that isnâ€™t trendy and expected. By the way, the chef loves pea shoots and uses them liberally. Laura Cremaâ€™s smoky voice enchants the room. We stop our conversation to applaud the jazz trio. Thanks to Cravingsâ€™ manager Karen Buck, the lounge will now host live music on Friday and Saturday evenings. The lineup includes the sounds of Brett Wade & Glenda Rae, UnoMas, Hemant Rao, Dino DiNicolo, Acoustic Grove, and Doug Towle (Spanish guitar). If you want something other than the tapas menu, try the Cava Burgerâ€”organic beef on a ciabatta bun with housemade yam fries, Grilled
Albacore Tuna with warm beet and potato salad, or Barramundi (Australian white ďŹ sh) with roasted orange. For those attending the Metro Theatre on Marine Drive, try the Dinner and Theatre pairingâ€”$40 includes two courses and a theatre ticket. As well, Cravings is available for private parties, catering, and take out. For something sweet at the end of our evening, my friend and I share an apple strudelâ€”the best Iâ€™ve had in a long timeâ€” and watch the room slowly empty. Itâ€™s nearing 11 p.m. â€œIâ€™ll be back on the 29th for the set menu ($25),â€? my friend tells (or warns) Angelo. â€œIâ€™m having the braised lamb.â€? I have my eye on the pastâ€”veal parmigiana. â€˘Cravings Restaurant & Lounge; 8808 Osler St., Vancouver; 604 261 7779; cravings.ca Arlene Kroeker writes about food every Thursday in The Richmond Review.

t’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Shelley’s new blog! Don’t just sit there, check out shelleysblog. yourlibrary.ca. It’s based on my book reviews and it gives you, the reader, a chance to engage with me, and others, about books and libraries. Boy, ﬁrst I get an iPad and now I have a blog! What next—my own website? Anyway, this week’s review is about Worth Dying For by Lee Child. You guessed it—it’s another Jack Reacher suspense novel, and boy
is it ever good! This time Reacher lands in a tiny town in Nebraska where he ends up smack in the middle of a gang war of sorts. The powerful Duncan family, who own a trucking company, has a stranglehold on the town’s inhabitants. The gang part comes in later. The Duncans rule by intimidation and they sure as heck don’t like strangers walking into their business. No sooner does Reacher arrive than the Duncans want him out. He’s an enigma to them, and one that poses an enormous threat to their livelihood. We learn early on that the Duncans are waiting for some mysterious shipment to arrive, but they want Reacher out of the way before it comes. Enter nefarious characters from other places that have a serious stake in the safe arrival of the “goods.” Reacher is like a thorn in their collective side, and they spare no manpower trying to take him out. But they don’t know who they’re
dealing with. Reacher once again demonstrates his ingenious ways of killing and immobilizing bad guys. So intense is the animosity between Reacher and the thugs that the body count tops out at about 21, which is high, even for Reacher. Using typical Reacher-speak, he warns off one of the local tough guys by saying: “So here’s the thing, Brett. Either you take your hand off my chest, or I’ll take if off your wrist.” And that’s just a mild threat. While all this is going on, Reacher learns about a cold case involving a local little girl who went missing 25 years ago. This is where his odd sense of justice prevails, and he stops at nothing to ﬁnd out what happened to her. While his moral compass is somewhat skewed, it still gravitates towards helping the weak….but not before he mows down all the evil elements in his path. He’s like a one-man wreaking ball, eliminating

Celebrating 100 years of skating Connaught ice gala reflects on decades by Don Fennell
•Connaught began holding competitions and a carnival during a period known as Roaring Twenties, an era when sport enjoyed unprecedented appeal.
The Connaught Skating Club celebrated its 100th birthday in style Saturday. Sporting fashions representative of each of the club’s 10 decades, members showed their skating talents while performing to such popular period numbers as the “Skaters Waltz” (1910), “It Don’t Mean a Thing, if You Ain’t Got Swing” (1940) and “Send in the Clowns” (1970). Following is a look at the club’s history through the decades.
1910s •Under the patronage of His Royal Highness, the Duke of Connaught, enthusiastic Vancouver residents form the Connaught Skating Club in 1911. Celebrating its 100th anniversary last weekend, the now Richm0nd-based club is the oldest skating club in B.C., and second oldest in Canada. Connaught’s first home was the Denman Arena. Located near the entrance to Stanley Park, the 10,000-seat arena (one of the largest in the world and one of two artificial rinks in Canada at the time) was built at a cost of $300,000 in 1911 to house the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association. The Millionaires won the Stanley Cup in 1915.
1930s •Connaught was forced to relocate to the Forum on the Pacific National Exhibition grounds after the Denman Arena burned down in 1936. But the move proved positive as club membership grew signifcantly.
One of the club’s Juvenile skaters performed to the 1910s “Alexander’s Rag Time Band.”
1950s •Connuaght skaters enjoyed great success under the guidance of Austrian-born coaches Albert Enders and Sadie Cambridge. Notable skaters included Audrey (Downie) Williams and Brian Power who in 1952 and 1954 finished second in Canada in pairs. Williams went on to spend more than five decades in the sport in a myriad of capacities and was a longtime international judge officiating at numerous Olympic Games. She will be inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame this September. In 1952, the club was denied an application to build its own skating and curling rink near the old Shaughnessy Golf Club because the property could not be rezoned. See Page 24

1960s •Connaught was close to folding when the Richmond (Minoru) Arena was built in 1965. Arena officials were looking for a club to take over organizing the Learn-to-Skate programs and figure skating in Richmond. Several Connaught directors happened to be Richmond residents, so relocating the club to Richmond was heartily supported. On Oct. 26, 1965, with membership at almost 200, the club held its official Richmond opening with future (1973) world champion Karen

Magnussen among the guest skaters.
1970s •In 1973, future Connaught coach Tina (Kichler) Leininger became a principal skater with Holiday on Ice, while in 1977, Donna Burke became the first of many Connaught skaters to pass the national gold level test. She was also one of the first to go on to skate in ice shows, become a pro coach or both, a list that also includes Cheryl (Saretsky) Thorsteinson.
1980s •In 1988, Tanya Bingert reached the top of the Canadian figure skating podium by wining the Junior Ladies title.

•Connaught skaters kicked off the new millenium in style, with Bronwyn ReesThomas placing fourth in the Novice Ladies Division at the 2000 Canadian championships. This set the stage for a gold-medal performance in 2001 by Sydney Gelfer, who teamed with Paul Gagnon from the White Rock/Surrey Skating Club to win the Juvenile Dance title at the Skate Canada nationals. And earlier this year, Mitchell Gordon stood atop the national podium as Canada’s newest Junior Novice Men’s champion.

by Don Fennell Sports Editor The Richmond Sockeyes came up short of netting their second provincial Junior B hockey championship in three years last weekend in Fernie. But while the team was disappointed, coach Judd Lambert says the season has to be considered a success. “We got the most we could out of the team, and they did of themselves,” said Lambert. After compiling the best record in the Paciﬁc International Junior Hockey League during the regular season (37-5-4), the Sockeyes added the playoff banner with best-ofseven series wins over North Delta Devils, Delta Ice Hawks and Abbotsford Pilots to earn the right to represent the PIJHL at the Cyclone Taylor Cup tournament, which also featured the playoff champions from the Vancouver Island (Peninsula Panthers) and Kootenay leagues (Osoyoos Coyotes and host Fernie Ghostriders). Richmond was encouraged by its 4-3 opening-day win over Osoyoos, and enjoyed a decent start against eventual tournament winner Penin-
sula the following day before losing 6-4. That was followed by a 1-0 loss to Fernie on Saturday and a 3-0 loss to Osoyoos on Sunday. “We weren’t good enough,” said Lambert. “The other teams were better than we were and I don’t have any problem acknowledging that. We couldn’t score in the games we had to.” But Lambert acknowledged the Sockeyes were also the youngest team—by far—at the tournament. Peninsula had 13 players aged 19 or 20, while the Sockeyes had ﬁve. “Experience is a big deal,” Lambert said. “They were bigger and stronger. ” But the Sockeyes aren’t about to change their philosophy just for the sake of winning. “I don’t think it’s reflected throughout the province what the Sockeyes are trying to do,” he said. “We want to win, but we want to maintain our priorities of develop players and people too.” Lambert said the Sockeyes continue to produce top-level talent for the Junior A ranks as well as the college level. He said among the current players who are garnering a lot of interest are Sebastien Pare,
Ryan Cooper, Aaron Oakley, Rudi Thorsteinson and Turner Popoff. Only 17, Pare averaged more than a point a game during the regular season and was the Sockeyes’ second-leading scorer with 50 points. Cooper, 17, and Popoff, 16, have emerged as two of the top blueline prospects in the province, while Oakley, 18, emerged as the top goalie in the PIJHL this season with a 2.06 goals-against average. After a decent regular season in which he counted 34 points in 43 games, Thorsteinson, 18, led all Sockeyes in playoff scoring with 27 points in 15 games. He had four points in three games at the Cyclone Taylor Cup tournament. Another solid prospect is Brayden Low, 16, who played a handful of games this season with the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League. The Sockeyes will begin moulding the 2011-12 team when management holds their annual tryout camp in May. With many of the current players eligible to return, there’s a good chance next season’s squad will be a little more experienced. ”If that’s the case we’ll embrace it,” Lambert said.

Cricket Canada disappointed to be shut out of 2010 World Cup Cricket Canada is disheartened to learn the International Cricket Council has elected to not allow associate cricket nations such as Canada into the 2015 Cricket World Cup. In a press release, Cricket Canada says while it is apparent that the push for a 10-team tournament supports the needs of the sponsors and broadcasters who ultimately fund much of our programs, “we were very disappointed to learn that there would be no qualiﬁcation process for the 2015 Cricket World Cup.”
From the results of the recently completed 2011 Cricket World Cup in the subcontinent, it is apparent that associate nations are able to compete at the international level and need more encouragement to develop their high performance teams against the full member nations, says the release. It adds that Canadian players turned out strong performances in this world cup and “the decision will surely mark the end of world cup careers for several of our players in the prime of their careers.”
