Murder victim was known to police Witness heard two shots fired; man found dead at scene

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The man gunned down in broad daylight in a bustling residential neighbourhood in downtown Richmond was known to police. Richmond Mounties were called around 1:10 p.m. Wednesday to a report of shots fired, and found a man’s slumped body on the sidewalk next to the intersection of Ferndale Road and Katsura Street, one block south east of Garden City and Westminster Highway. The victim was wearing what appears to be a black Affliction-style T-shirt at the time of his death. The new family-oriented densely populated neighbourhood where the brazen shooting occurred is peppered by high-rises, four-storey condos and townhouses. Sgt. Jennifer Pound, of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said police responded to the scene and found the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Police had not released

the man’s name at press time as they were still trying to contact the victim’s immediate family. A witness told The Richmond Review that he was watching the Chelsea and Barcelona Champions League soccer match when he “heard two bangs about 1 to 1:30 p.m.” “It was like a car tire exploding,” he said. His apartment overlooks the tennis courts that are

kitty-corner to the crime scene. “I didn’t relate it to anything, but (later) I saw the investigation going on.” A large yellow tarp covered the body of the male victim on the sidewalk directly adjacent to the intersection that’s the focus of the investigation. The man’s footwear could be seen poking out from underneath the tarp, and a police dog with a han-

dler was sniffing what was underneath. The entire scene remained cordoned off with yellow police tape well into Wednesday evening as investigators canvassed the neighbourhood for witnesses and combed the scene for clues. Originally, more than 15 officers were on the scene as well as a police dog, plainclothes police officers, and ambulance paramedics.

An undercover police officer was speaking to what appeared to be a female witness to the incident, speaking at a bench inside the taped-off area around 2:30 p.m. There was a lockdown at nearby Henry Anderson Elementary as well as A.R. MacNeill Secondary while police secured the crime scene, which is directly across the street from Richmond Pentecostal Church.

Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie doesn’t believe the Canada Line will ever be extended south, despite a design that could accommodate more track. “In our lifetimes, you probably won’t ever see it,” said Brodie. “I don’t think we’ll ever see the Canada Line itself extended because the last section of it has only one line, not two tracks.” MALCOLM Speaking at a RichBRODIE mond Chamber of Commerce event Tuesday, Brodie acknowledged the Canada Line was “specifically built with the idea that it could be extended” south, but that would come with a big price tag. The Canada Line cost $2.05 billion to build—or $107.9 million per kilometre. Could a ground-level system be built instead to extend rapid transit farther south than Saba Road? Brodie said there would be enough density in Richmond to support that—at least to Steveston Highway—but directly south of the Fraser River there’s little population to support it. “So you’re going to have a huge expense for really very little value in terms of densities,” said Brodie. The Canada Line opened August 2009, connecting downtown Vancouver with the airport and the Brighouse area of Richmond. On Lulu Island, the line is elevated, travelling nearly four kilometres down No. 3 Road—the last half being a single-track guideway.

Photography exhibit explores impact of China’s one child policy by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

H

ua Jin arrived in Canada five years ago alone. With no family or friends, she got homesick. She especially missed her parents, even though they died a few years earlier.

“I had a really great regret that as a photographer I didn’t have a chance to photograph my parents,” said Jin, 36, a Vancouver resident. She realized she still had a chance to capture images and stories of her extended family in her native country of China, and My Big Family began to take shape. Jin’s ongoing photography project is the latest exhibition at Richmond Art Gallery. It features 43 environmental portraits of her relatives and video clips illustrating how they contrast. An accompanying community project—in Gallery 3—features a display of framed family photographs of Richmond families. Jin’s photographs form an intimate view of her grandmother, aunts, uncles and other relatives, while also offering a larger portrait of a country undergoing dramatic economic and social changes. China’s gap between rich and poor is evident, as are the vastly different lifestyles within the country’s population, such as those who farm in the countryside and those who work in bustling cities. Jin’s work also underscores the gradual disappearance of large families in China

My Big Family •New photography exhibition by Hua Jin •On until June 10 at Richmond Art Gallery, 7700 Minoru Gate •Admission is by donation; open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (until 9 p.m. Thursdays) and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends •Artist talk and tour June 2 from 1 to 2 p.m. since the nation adopted a one child policy. After her parents died, Jin—a member of the first generation affected by the policy—felt particularly lucky she has a twin sister. “She’s so important for me right now. Otherwise I’d be totally alone in this world,” she said. “My generation, they don’t have brothers and sisters, but in my case, I’m a twin, so there’s nothing they can do about twins.” Most children in China now grow up without having the experience of having brothers and sisters, and Jin said that’s prompted her generation to re-examine the policy and its impact. Despite evidence the policy is relaxing somewhat, having more than one child in China is far from easy. “They don’t have the environment for them to grow up for them to learn how to share, for them to consider others. This isn’t their fault. It is just what is happening in China.” Jin trained as an animator and graphic designer and worked as an artistic creative director for more than 10 years before

Veteran’s relatives suspected of fraud Mary Lou Lexier and Alan Lexier investigated for claiming vet Ben Dewberry alive 8 years after death by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The relatives of a Canadian veteran were investigated for cashing his government veteran’s pension for as many as eight years after his death. According to a search warrant application filed at Richmond provincial court and obtained by The Richmond Review in January, Richmond’s Alan Lexier and his wife Mary Lou Lexier were suspected of defrauding Veteran Affairs Canada of $125,725.72. Mary Lou Lexier, a retired teacher from Delta, is the daughter of veteran Benjamin Dewberry, who died on Jan. 24, 1998. She and her husband are suspected of having continued to cash his pension cheques until as late as Sept. 30, 2006, the search

warrant claims. The Richmond Review was aware of the allegations earlier this year, but declined to publish the story until charges were approved by the Crown. Alan Lexier has now been charged with theft over $5,000, theft under $5,000, fraud over $5,000 and fraud under $5,000 and is scheduled to make his first apperance in Richmond provincial court on May 1. Mary Lou Lexier has not been charged. Details of the RCMP investigation are included in a police application to obtain a driver’s license photograph from the Insurance Corporation of B.C. of Alan Lexier, who until last summer was the umpire-in-chief for Richmond City Baseball Association. The photo was to be used for a line-up to show to the manager of a local mailbox rental business, where the Lexiers are alleged to have opened a post office box for the receipt of Dewberry’s pension cheques. The two-year RCMP investigation was launched in October 2009 after Mounties were contacted by Andre Joannette, director general of finance for Veterans Affairs Canada. Dewberry had been admitted to a Burnaby residential care facility in October of 1997, and Mary Lou Lexier was named as his power of attorney who was responsible for payment of his share of costs to the facility, the court document states. Dewberry died the following January 1998, but according to the search warrant, a benefit declaration form signed in the name of Dewberry and dated May 1, 1999 was submitted to Veterans Affairs Canada.

“I infer by this that there was a willful misrepresentation of Benjamin Dewberry as living and eligible to receive his pension,” the search warrant application states. Investigators interviewed Mary Lou Lexier in 2009, and she claimed that Alan Lexier handled her father’s affairs prior to his death. She claimed she and her husband thought the veteran’s pension money was a survivor’s benefit. “We had done everything we had stopped all his pensions, like his Canada Pension was stopped and all that kind of stuff was done,” she said in the court document. She claimed she never signed her father’s name on a benefit declaration form. “She is willing to pay back any money that is owed to Veterans Affairs Canada,” the court document states. “She and Alan Lexier have always struggled financially—they have had three kids go through university and Alan Lexier had a stroke six years ago.” Alan Lexier, in a statement to investigators, said he couldn’t figure out why Veterans Affairs Canada didn’t know Dewberry had passed away because the family received money from Canada Pension to pay for his funeral, and he had lived in a veteran’s hospital before he passed away. Reached in January, Alan Lexier declined to comment. But in a statement to police, he questioned whether criminal charges would still be forwarded if the family paid restitution. Lexier’s lawyer, Vincent Michaels, did not return phone calls.

Nonetheless, she’s also continuing her pursuit for photographs for the exhibition My Big Family. If for nothing else, to remember where she came from. “I did this in memory of my parents,” said Jin. “I did this for them.”

Memorial to be held for Mary Gazetas on Saturday A memorial for Mary Gazetas will be held on Saturday at the Chinese Bunkhouse at Britannia Heritage Shipyard. The local artist, writer, activist and lover of the outdoors and her community, passed away Tuesday morning after a six-week illness. She was 68. Saturday’s memoMARY rial starts at 11 a.m. GAZETAS with prayer, music, words from the family and an opportunity to share stories about Gazetas. Afterwards, a wreath of flowers will be released into the Fraser, and those attending are asked to bring a bloom or some petals to add to the wreath or to scatter in the water at the same time. A potluck lunch, celebratory music and drinks will follow. For more details, see lightacandle formary.wordpress.com. Gazetas was one of the founders of the Richmond Fruit Tree Sharing Project, which evolved into the Sharing Farm. The program produces thousands of pounds of produce each year for needy families who rely on the Richmond Food Bank.

Richmond woman pleads guilty in riot charge To be sentenced for part in Stanley Cup riot on June 20 in Vancouver by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

ISLAND VETERINARY HOSPITAL

A Richmond woman who lost her job as a result of her involvement in the June 2011 Stanley Cup riot in downtown Vancouver, has pled guilty to participating in a riot. Camille Roxanne Cacnio pled guilty last week in Vancouver provincial court. She was originally also charged with breaking and entering. A pre-sentencing report will be prepared in anticipation of her next

court appearance, scheduled for June 20 in Vancouver, at which time she's expected to be sentenced. Cacnio, a scholarship winner in 2007, admitted that she’s the young woman pictured at the 1:33 mark of a YouTube video at http://tinyurl.com/ CacnioRiot. In a blog she posted after the riot, and which she hastily took down after apparently having second thoughts about its content and receiving negative feedback, she apologized for her actions and said she was prepared to face the music. She said she was caught up in “mob mentality” and was seeking an “adrenaline rush” and suggested that she was impaired by alcohol. “At the time, being a part of the riot was simply to fulfill the adrenaline rush I was looking and hoping for—an adrenaline rush that I previ-

ously got from post-winning games: hugging randoms, dancing on the streets, honking car horns non-stop, and high-fiving just about everybody. In the same way that everybody enjoyed collectively showing pride in our team, it was enjoyable to express my disappointment in a collective manor.” She wrote: “I had no intentions of defiling the city. I love Vancouver as much as you do—I've lived her since I was 7 months old. But in my immature, intoxicated perspective all I saw was that the riot was happening, and would continue happening with or without me, so I might as well get my adrenaline fix.” Cacnio had until the riot had been working as a receptionist at Burrard Acura and was employed at the UBC Birdcoop Fitness Centre. She lost her job at Burrard Acura.

YVR named top airport For the third year in a row, Vancouver International Airport was deemed the best airport in North America by travelers, more than 12 million of whom voted in the survey. The good news came from the World Airport Awards being held Vienna, Austria and the results also indicated YVR was the best airport of its size in the world.

Onni eyes 660 apartments in City Centre

Sewer line to cost $97 million

Project to be significant catalyst for change to City Centre’s road network

The first phase of constructing a $97-million sewer line across Lulu Island will begin later this year. Metro Vancouver owns and operates the Gilbert trunk sewer line, which connects the Bridgeport pump station in the north with the Lulu Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in the south. The regional authority has determined

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Onni Group of Companies is proposing to build 660 apartments in a redeveloping area of City Centre perhaps best known for its Tim Hortons. City council’s planning committee has given early endorsement to four six-storey wood frame buildings at 7731 and 7771 Alderbridge Way. The two parcels—2.9 hectares (7.1 acres) in size— are currently zoned industrial-retail and are home to various retail and commercial tenants, including a Tim Hortons coffee shop and Y Yoga. Onni’s plans call for the buildings to be constructed overtop one-storey concrete parking structures. If approved, the project would serve as a significant catalyst for change in the area: an extension of Cedarbridge Way, construction of a new section of

River Road along a former railway right-of-way, the widening of Alderbridge Way and Gilbert Road, and new pedestrian and bicycle routes. In his report, senior co-ordinator of major projects Mark McMullen called the development a “distinctive, high-quality, high-density yet low-rise part of the Lansdowne Village neighbourhood.” Thirty-eight affordable housing units—with rents currently pegged at a maximum of $925 to $1,137—are included in the development, designed by Yamamoto Architecture Inc. Onni bought the site in early 2011. It’s located north of a former Grimm’s sausage factory site, which is also the subject of a rezoning application for a mixed-use development. If built, the buildings would be among the first sixstorey wood-frame developments in Richmond since the province changed the B.C. Building Code to allow the wood structures taller than four floors. Onni is also responsible for two other major residential projects in the neighbourhood. Ora, a threetower mixed-use project is under construction near the Richmond Olympic Oval. Flo, on Elmbridge Way, is another three-tower development built by Onni a few years ago.

April 25 to 27, 2012

Hurricane potatoes, curry fish balls and endless cell phone accessories will again be on offer this summer on Vulcan Way. City council approved a three-year temporary use permit Monday for the Summer Night Market to operate at 12631 Vulcan Way. The site, behind Home Depot, has hosted a market for the past eight years. “The Summer Night Market is ready for its opening day,” said operator Paul Cheung in a news release. “We have been working hard to prepare a fun and entertaining multicultural outdoor event for our visitors.” The market is scheduled to operate from May 11 to Sept. 16. Besides perusing the food offerings and wares of merchandise vendors, Cheung said visitors can expect entertainment for all ages throughout the market, including karaoke, magic shows, an eating contest and singing competitions. Cheung said his paved site is an “excellent location” with free street parking and easy access by transit. Pay parking will be offered on-site. Admission to the market is free. Operating hours are Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m. to midnight and Sundays and holiday Mondays 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. This is the second night market set to open in Richmond this spring; the Richmond Night Market will open May 18 near River Rock Casino Resort.

the line, originally built in 1970, needs to be twinned to keep up with Richmond’s fast-growing population.

Council Update RCMP contract leaves too many unanswered questions By Derek Dang The City of Richmond and most other BC municipalities are being asked to commit our Derek Dang communities Councillor to a 20-year contract with the RCMP. This is being negotiated through the Province and the implications are vast. We are being asked to commit to a contract that isn’t filled with financial answers and assurances of cost containment. When we had a presentation on Monday, April 2, 2012, the question was asked of our staff whether we had firm numbers regarding the costs for police services such as specialized teams (dog squads, integrated gang task force, Emergency Response Team and integrated homicide investigation team). The answer received was a flat “no.” In business and life, when one enters a contract, the expectation is to have a well thought out agreement that defines and identifies all the items that each party are responsible for. There are elements of this contract that will bind us and future generations to figures that haven’t been spelled out. In other words, we are to act on blind faith that the provincial government is doing their best for our cities. I said the best thing about this contract is the opt out clause! Further on in the discussion on April 2, we were told if we

didn’t comply and sign the contract, we’d be dealt with harshly. These were described as “vagaries” such as a potential increased cost to the City of Richmond. If we didn’t sign the contract, we wouldn’t have a loss of police services, but we wouldn’t have the benefit of the contract so we could be charged more! I have maintained the view that the RCMP does its best to provide policing services to Richmond, but the model and the governance hinders the most efficient service. We need to be able to see better accountability and cooperation that is local and not Ottawa driven. There is a need to be locally controlled and a Richmond Police Force is one option that would allow us to retain our identity. We could probably share services with Delta, New Westminster and Vancouver for dog squads, gang task force, emergency response, etc. A Richmond force would be governed locally. Governance, accountability, budget and policy would be locally controlled—a huge bonus. Would we be better off with a Metro Police Force? Given the choices of a single police entity versus the many silos that are fragmenting the Lower Mainland today, I believe so. Criminals, serial criminals and gangs would find it more difficult to operate with a more harmonious police presence. Whether it is a new regional police force or otherwise, some hard decisions will have to be made before we commit to a 20-year contract.

Open House – Wednesday, April 25 The City of Richmond would like to invite residents and property owners to an open house to learn more about the 2012 capital construction upgrade of the Williams Road West Drainage Pump Station.

T

his is not a column I wanted to write. Paying homage to a dear friend, mentor, and most importantly, a co-conspirator, Mary Gazetas.

Mary and I first met in 1998 when I was the staff agrologist for West Coast Seeds. She was instrumental in helping to find a home for a new trial ground at London Farm. But I didn’t really get to know her until about 2003 when she had already started the Richmond Fruit Tree Sharing Project. Mary had a wonderful way of drawing people in and making them feel included in every project and her list of accomplishments is incredible. I can only scratch the surface by remembering her as an artist, a writer, a project manager, and a community organizer. We all loved Mary and loved working with her because she made it so fun. A couple of years ago, she came into a meeting (as she often did) with the statement “Guys, I have this idea…” She had seen an outdoor pizza oven in a Toronto neighbourhood where seniors and youth were at odds with each other. She went on to describe how building the oven and then making the pizzas had helped bring both sides together. And with that story, we were convinced we wanted this for our community. So, we went about planning, and gathering materials. At one low tide, Mary, Kareno, my two kids and I, with our pant legs rolled up, gathered old bricks that had once been part of the cannery houses on the north arm of the river. Other friends brought paving stones. We dug huge mounds of clay and Ian Lai gathered cattail fibre. In a weekend, we built the oven, many of us mixing all the ingredients with their bare feet. We had music, and food and tons of laughter. Susan finished it off with some beautiful scrollwork and then the cob oven was born. The first time we fired it up, Mary was front and centre.

Mark Patrick file photo Mary Gazetas had a wonderful way of drawing people in and making them feel included in every project. She stuffed the oven with wood but when she went to open the door, she realized, too late, that she had over-fueled it and out came this wave of fire, like a flame thrower, singing Mary’s eyebrows and bangs. When she related this to me, she was giggling and had that twinkle

in her eye. That twinkle, that light, is what drew us to her. In working with her and sharing her adventures, we developed our own light. Now, when someone comes up with a new idea, I catch myself saying “Right on!” A true Maryism. I see it in many others working

at the Sharing Farm too. She lit that fire in all of us. So, although I am devastated, and the tears have not stopped flowing, I am still smiling. I see her special touch everywhere– in Steveston, Terra Nova, Minoru Residence, even at the dog park. Most importantly, I see her energy

continuing to live in all of us who knew her. There will be more laughter, more stories, and more adventures. That’s what Mary taught us to do.

Our own frozen s blueberrie

Mary Gazetas’s vision Editor: Back in 2001, Mary Gazetas saw ripe fruit left on trees, and she saw it as good food that could feed the needy. So she found ways to pick and donate it, always with cheerful enthusiasm, and others were glad to help. In a long happy story, that spirit began to transform Richmond. I’d like to share a later part of the Mary story, the Garden City Lands part. As with the unpicked fruit, Mary energized a groundswell of support for conserving the Garden City Lands. Her team expressed it in a sustainable-food-park proposal for the lands, and Richmond council responded well in early 2007. Mary’s community groups also hosted a town hall meeting at the local Kwantlen campus in March 2007, with two hundred citizens overowing the hall to exchange insights. All sorts of people and groups aiming to keep the Garden City Lands in the Agricultural Land Reserve grew vocal. In January 2008, Mary welcomed a range of voices to her table at London Landing, and they became a coalition with momentum. The Garden City Lands public hearing in March 2008 brought out far more voices, so the coalition became a society, and Mary became a director and ofďŹ cer. In mid2009, she asked to cut back to tend to her husband’s health, but she was always there for us as a sage advisor. Meanwhile, the Terra Nova parks, where Mary played a central role, became a model of community success for the lands to emulate. The Garden City Lands, like their Terra Nova cousins, can and should forever express Mary’s spirit—a smiling, healing, sharing vision in appreciation of what we have.

Editor: I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Gazetas, as an instant friend of everyone she met. During the course of Mr. Gazetas’ illness, I often saw Mary at Minoru Park, at her favorite spot facing the waterfall, tending to the love of her life, Aristides, silently and with great dignity for his comfort at all times. Countless times, she would sit with him and I stopped a few times and said hi only to see in her eyes a sadness she cared too much to try to hide. A few times I saw her at Save-on at Terra Nova and she always wore a beautiful smile for anyone willing to say hello to her. Although I never formally introduced myself and just said hi to her, I sometimes thought of her after seeing her and wished her pain, the slow loss of her husband could somehow be avoided.

Volunteers help our community grow Editor: A tree, when it’s first planted, looks scrawny, as if the slightest wind could tear it from its roots and send it toppling to the ground. Under the proper conditions, though, that same tree will grow to become strong and vibrant, reaching heights no one thought possible. A community grows in much the same way. It starts out with shallow roots, and, over time, steadies itself, branches out, begins providing shade and shelter for an increasing number of diverse inhabitants. There are many reasons why a

Ours included. Richmond is a young city brimming with potential. I firmly believe that volunteerism—and the sense of civic pride it helps create—is the key to fulfilling that potential.

That’s probably where most of these calls are coming from. Who can’t just dial 911? Sandra Monette Richmond

Q: I have osteoporosis and would like to take a better form of calcium! What do you recommend?

her fat?

A:

Obesity in pets is a multifactoral problem primarily resulting from over feeding and lack of physical activity. However, after spaying or neutering your pet there is a documented slowing of metabolism. Therefore, it is important and recommended to reduce their caloric intake after the procedure with help from your veterinary staff. All animals vary in energy output and requirements to maintain a healthy weight. A diet plan should be discussed with your veterinarian to determine how much to feed your animal. Specifically, we recommend all female dogs and cats are spayed around 6 months of age (this age recommendation can change depending on breed and lifestyle) prior to their first heat to dramatically reduce the risk of mammary cancer. Spaying your pet is a good idea to prevent pet overpopulation along with various diseases associated with the reproductive organs. For more information specific to your animal please discuss with your veterinarian.

There are many forms of calcium currently on the market, including calcium carbonate, citrate, gluconate, as well as many other forms. For those who have already had fractures, or are at high risk of developing a fracture, I often recommend Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite (MCH). MCH Is essentially bone marrow derived from New Zealand free range cows and contains calcium, phosphorous, and other minerals. In limited studies, MCH has shown effectiveness in strengthening the bone more than calcium alone. I often recommend the Metagenics brand MCH as 3 tablets a day can replace your calcium supplement. Ask you pharmacist about MCH or find it here at Pharmasave Steveston Village!

PLUMBING, HEATING, AIR CONDITIONING, GAS, AND SO MUCH MORE ...

The term, hay fever is a misnomer. The correct term is allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis is manifested by clear nasal discharge, sneezing, nasal itchiness and watery eyes upon exposure to allergens. These are chemicals we are sensitive to, usually small protein particles. In the old days, people allergic to hay got these symptoms while harvesting hay, hence the term “Hay fever” The common seasonal allergens are pollens, grass and weeds (especially ragweed). Pollens are male sex cells of plants. They are small, dry and light and hence can be carried by the wind everywhere. Other year around, less common allergens are cats and dogs dander and mold. Allergy is like a war between our body and the chemicals we are allegic to. When exposed to the allergens, our body begins producing certain antibodies in large quantities, in this case called IgE ( E for erythema). These are the soldiers that begin fighting with the offending agents, the allergens. In doing so some bystanders get hurt, in this case, the cells called the mast cells. Damaged mast cells end up releasing a chemical called histamine. It is histamine that causes these allergy symptoms. This is why we use antihistamines to relieve these symptoms. Best treatment for allergy symptoms is to avoid exposure to allergens which can be difficult if not impossible sometimes. If you have ongoing significant symptoms, see your family doctor as allergies can cause more serious problems such as asthma, sinusitis, chronic lethargy, angio-edema and anaphylactic reactions. The latter two are very serious allergic reactions presenting with hives, lip, tounge and throat swelling and difficulty breathing. Your family doctor can help you with the appropriate treatment and allergy checking if warranted. Until next time, this is your local family doctor, Dr. Satnam Gandham MD.

I agree with you completely. There are numerous diet books out there all preaching different methods to help you achieve your goals. For the most part, eating healthy comes down to a few key things: quantity of food, quality of food, and timing of food. When it comes to quantity of food, most of us are eating too much at any given meal or snack. By simply reducing portion sizes, you can greatly reduce your caloric intake and that can help a great deal in maintaining a healthy bodyweight. Eating quality foods can be a bit trickier but as a general rule, try to eat more foods that come from natural sources like lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Limit your consumption of refined and processed carbohydrates as well as saturated and trans fats. Lastly, the timing of your meals is also important as you want to have your largest meals earlier in the day and eat progressively smaller meals as the day goes on. This allows you to burn the majority of your calories throughout the day reducing the risk of storing excess calories as fat. Follow these three simple rules and you’ll be well on your way to achieving your goals. Yours in health, Isaac Payne

Q: What are the differences in Stainless steel sinks come in a wide selection of types and styles. However, the most important issue with stainless steel sinks is the thickness. This is because the sinks that are made from thicker stainless steel are much more durable. If you are buying a stainless steel sink, it may seem okay to go with the cheapest model, but in the long run, it will just have to be replaced as it gets scratched, vibrates and distorts.

I’m trying to workout regularly but with all of the different diets out there, I find it very difficult to know what I should and shouldn’t be eating. What is the best diet to follow to stay lean and maintain a healthy bodyweight?

Yes, all Canadian postage stamps from confederation on are still valid for postage. We buy so many collections of stamps that we end up with excess. We then sell them at a discount from face value. We make packages of 20 of the 61¢ domestic rates stamps and have them on sale price of $10.00. That is a savings of $2.20 from the face value. We also custom make up rates for clients.

Glaucoma is an eye disease affecting the optic nerve (the internal structure connecting the eye to the brain), and is a leading cause of blindness. Vision loss due to glaucoma typically begins with peripheral or side vision, and the condition is sometimes called a “silent thief” because significant eye-sight can be lost before symptoms are even noticed. Your eye doctor may perform a peripheral vision test to detect early signs of glaucoma and related vision loss. Other risk factors, such as elevated eye pressure, family history, age, ethnicity, and suspicious optic nerve appearance also aid in the early detection of glaucoma, even before vision loss begins. Only your doctor can determine if you have glaucoma and compliance of regular eye examinations is the best thing you can do for early detection and to protect yourself from glaucomatous vision loss. Depending on the type and severity of glaucoma, treatment can include medications and/or surgery.

Great question. Firstly, your wood-burning fireplace should be in good working condition and have a safe chimney. The easiest way to determine if your fireplace and chimney are ready to switch to gas, is to have a certified Chimney Sweep clean all soot and debris from the flue and firebox. During this process they can note if any deficiencies are present. If so, they need to be corrected.

Len Brady

Once you are ready, gathering details such as firebox size, chimney height, and location of gas will allow us to narrow down choices available in our showroom. We can work with your finishing wish list and match style choices such as contemporary burners versus traditional designs or heat producing versus decorative appliances.

Finally, having a personal consultation in your home will allow you to make final decisions and us to establish an exact quotation.

my teeth?

It depends. If you are a younger person (25 years or younger roughly) the problem you are trying to prevent is decay developing between teeth. This normally occurs at the contact point between the teeth. If there is enough plaque (and it’s acid) sitting in there it will begin to dissolve the enamel surface and eventually form a cavity. If you are using your toothbrush regularly, properly and thoroughly it will help minimize the plaque accumulation around the teeth at the gum line. However, it won’t get into the tight “in-between” spots. Therefore you need to floss.

Dr. Carol Reddin & Dr. Bonnie Chuter

Minoru Chiropractic

On the other hand if you are older and/or have some issues with gum recession or periodontal (gum) problems, you likely are no longer as prone to the cavities of youth but can accumulate more plaque between the larger spaces between the teeth. This in turn exacerbates the gum problem and can also lead to root surface decay. Using only floss in this situation doesn’t really do much compared to using interdental brushes. This was shown in a 2007 study (Dental Abstract May/June 2007 issue) of 77 patients with periodontal disease. After being cleaned up, these people were either instructed to use floss or use interdental brushes. Follow up of both groups was done at 6 and 12 weeks. Both groups showed plaque reductions but the group using the interdental brushes had significantly and consistently better results.

Q: What’s with this new virus for Apple It’s not new. It’s been around since late last summer but only recently discovered. More than six-hundred thousand Mac computers were infected with a Trojan that was designed to steal personal information and attack and infect other systems as part of a large global botnet. To add injury to insult, more such malware is being discovered as I type. Given the slow response of Apple, and the long history of indifference by Mac users, it’s not surprising that the doo doo has hit the proverbial fan. Message to Mac users: time to get educated and informed as you are in for a rough ride into reality. The real culprit, by the way, is Java. Java is one of the programming languages of the web and a culprit in malware infestations on both the Mac and the PC. Java, and other web development languages such as PHP, needs to be sent permanently into the penalty box if we are ever to have safe surfing.

know if I can and should see a chiropractor.

You definitely can see a chiropractor after you have been in a car accident and you do not need a medical doctor’s referral, nor do you need the permission of the ICBC adjustor. Often the sooner you seek chiropractic care the better your chances of a quick and complete recovery. In a retrospective study of 805 patients it was found that chiropractic intervention within 10 days of the accident achieved the highest rate of recovery when compared to those patients seen after a long delay from the date of injury. Neck, mid and low back pain, headaches, and dizziness are often not just the result of soft tissue injury, but often arise from misaligned vertebrae (called subluxations) in the spine, which comprises the delicate nerves that exit from the spine. Since chiropractic training emphasizes the diagnosis and management of patients with mechanical disorders of the spine and their related effects on the nervous system, a chiropractor should be your primary choice for an effective recovery from a motor vehicle accident.

Absolutely. There are a a few different lenders that will allow you to do it under a program called “Purchase Plus Improvements”. Under this program the improvements cannot exceed the lesser of 20% of the property value or $40,000. A few of the terms of this program are that you have 120 days to finish the improvements, and you have to be able to pay for the improvements upfront, but then you will get re-imbursed for them upon completion and they will be added onto the mortgage. This is a great tool that lenders offer to help those clients make the improvements in their home to finish it and give it the updated look and feel!

Vancouver streets came alive last Sunday morning with almost 50,000 people running, jiving, sashaying and walking to the beat of 18 different bands spread out over 10 kilometers at the 28th Vancouver Sun Run. On a cool day under overcast skies, they came in all shapes and sizes and from every demographic to be part of what is now more of a cultural happening than a footrace. It is the largest 10 km in Canada and one of the largest road races in the world. For the vast majority of participants, it will be the only 10 km (or any other distance) they do this year. Only the top 300 or so runners will race in a variety of events throughout the year. So what makes tens of thousands of first-timers and one-timers decide to go for it? “It’s the place to be!” was the answer given by several out of town participants. For locals, it’s a chance to see their names in print, as the Vancouver Sun news-

ly 3,700 participants and has slowly morphed since then into one of the biggest days on Vancouver’s calendar. Now, only the Peachtree 10k in Atlanta, with 55,077 finishers last year, is a larger 10 km than the Sun Run. In a Monday phone interview, I chatted with 22- year-old Kelly Wiebe, from Regina who was the overall men’s winner in 29:13. This was Wiebe’s first Sun Run and only his second road race. He was surprised by his victory, out kicking Kip Kangogo of Lethbridge, Alberta to the line. “I enjoyed running the course, running beside the ocean and the many spectators along the course. The scenery is unbelievable.” Wiebe happily said, “I think it will take two weeks for me to let it settle in,” adding, “I will come back next year if I can; The organizers did an unbelievable job and were great in taking care of the elite runners.” The women’s overall

winner was Natasha Fraser, 30, from Port Moody with a time of 34:12. It was Fraser’s first win in her seve =nth Sun Run. “It was an overwhelming feeling to win,” Fraser said, “as I didn’t have any expectations. I was so surprised and happy.” Both Wiebe and Fraser will compete in the 10,000 meters at the Canadian Track and Field Championships in Calgary in June. For those of you that put the Sun Run on your “bucket list,” time may be on your side. Just ask Eleanore Cross of West Vancouver, who won the women’s 95-99 division in 2:25:54. Meanwhile, Bernard Lotzkar, from Richmond, B.C. breezed home in 52:49 to easily win the men’s 80-84 division. Clearly, people are getting the hang of it! Christine Blanchette is a runner and writer.

paper prints the names of everyone that crosses the finish line. For elites from across Canada, the U.S. and far away as Kenya, it’s an opportunity to fine tune for upcoming marathons, while going for broke trying to win $21,000 in prize money up for grabs. For many, it’s simply the camaraderie of training together for a common purpose – finishing the race and enjoying the sense of accomplishment. It is 8:30 and I am already standing in my wave among thousands of other yellow bib numbers. It was so exciting to be here waiting for the nine o’clock start, soon to be carried along with so many people running in the streets that are usually filled with cars. Think of sardines in the can trying to swim out. It had the effect of the Pied Piper leading us all to the finish line. Bands and smiling faces everywhere made the run more enjoyable. The scenic course starts on West Georgia Street making its way through the West End, over bridges to the finish line at BC Place Stadium, where popular race commentator Steve King announces the runner’s names as they cross the finish line. It’s a great feeling to finish and then meet up with friends inside the stadium. The first Sun Run began in 1985 with approximate-

Honda Civic Sedan Si is a performance car under the skin by Neil Moore Special to Black Press Despite the drubbing from Consumer Reports, the Civic is still Canada’s top-selling car—and for 14 years running. Sure, you can’t entirely ignore the complaints about plasticky interiors, lack of steering feedback, longish stopping distances and body lean in corners, but keep in mind they tested only the LX—the second-lowest trim level. And not all reviewers agree with CR. Also consider that this knock hasn’t put a dent in sales, with Honda moving 55,090 Civics in 2011, and 14,281 in the first quarter of 2012. The Si Sedan, my tester for the week, should dismiss at least some of these gripes. As Honda’s four-door performance variant, it gets sporttuned suspension, bigger brakes, tuned steering, and most importantly more power, making it a vastly different driving experience from lesser Civics. One of the key Si upgrades for 2012 was swapping its highstrung 2.0litre inline four-cylinder—a screamer you could wind up to nearly 8,000 rpm—with a

The 2012 Honda Civic Sedan Si wears a few styling cues that distinguish it from other Civics, but the main differences are under the skin. The Si’s potent 2.4-litre iVTEC four-cylinder with more accessible power (201 hp and 170 lb/ft of torque) is key among them.

torquier 2.4-litre VTEC. The 2.4-litre is the same powerplant used in the Acura TSX. This 16-valve DOHC engine with iVTEC delivers 201 horses (up four from before) and more importantly, 170 lb/ft of torque. This is an increase of 31 lb/ft, which comes on earlier with peak at 4,400 rpm versus 6,100 for its predecessor. With ‘intelligent’ valve control (low valve lift at low rpms/high

lift at high revs), reduced friction, a high-volume intake manifold and other performance tweaks, this engine delivers a broader torque curve and more available power. All this comes with a nice rasp from the large-bore tailpipe, thanks to a high-flow, low backpressure exhaust system, exclusive to the Si. See Page 21

Minivan sales have been declining in recent years with many manufacturers dropping out of the market entirely. But after a week with a 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE AWD, I find it hard to understand why. Now in its third generation after a major revamp last year, the Sienna just keeps getting better and better. It’s the versatility and convenience of the minivan that makes it such a family-friendly vehicle and the Sienna is among the best of the bunch with what Toyota calls “a fresh focus on modern comfort, convenience, style and functionality.” There’s something for everyone with the Sienna that comes in eight models for 2012, including a choice of two power trains along with available all-wheel drive. To my knowledge, Toyota is the only manufacturer to offer all-wheel drive in a minivan. My tester was a topline XLE AWD V6, starting at $40,835. With the optional Limited Package ($8,375) and other taxes and freight and PDI, the end price was $50,974.36. That’s a hefty price tag for any vehicle, but not out of line with top-shelf trim levels among the competition like the Nissan Quest, Honda Odyssey Touring or Chrysler Town & Country Limited. At the other end of the trim spectrum, the staring price for the entry-level Sienna LE is $28,120 or $29,120 with the 3.5L V6. The base LE comes with a 187 hp 2.7-litre four-cylinder engine that achieves a fuel-economy rating of 9.1L/100 km city/highway combined. Most Sienna models, however, arrive with a 3.5-litre V6 producing 266 hp and 245 lb/ft of torque. Front-wheel drive Sienna V6 models deliver a combined city/ highway fuel efficiency of 9.8L/100 km. The all-wheel drive model is rated at 10.6L/100 km city/highway combined. The Sienna offers seating for seven or eight people with a

auto review From Page 18 Much of the joy in driving the Si also comes from its six-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter. The clutch engages nicely, not abruptly like the Mazdaspeed3, and the stick is light and easy to work. Go hard into a corner, drop into second gear, power out of the curve, and you’ll also notice less wheelspin on exiting. Thanks to the limited-slip differential, once again found only on the Si, spirited driving is more fun than most front-drivers. And as for body lean, I had no complaints with my tester, as its suspension benefits from higher spring rates, larger stabilizer bars and lower ride height than conventional Civics. And front and rear damper settings are sport-tuned. Common to all Civics is the two-tier instrument panel, carried over from the last model. It divides the display top and bottom with key information like speedo, fuel gauge and rev-limit indicator (Si only) above the steering wheel, and secondary info below. This puts the most-used instruments in the driver’s line of sight. Although Civic is Honda’s sales leader, the Si only makes up 4.5 per cent of Civic sales, making it a bit of a niche vehicle. But it does represent what the company claims is at the heart of its engineering. Over the years, Honda has pumped its racing heritage and the fun-to-drive character of its vehicles, and more than any other car in its lineup, except perhaps the Accord HFP, the Si embodies these qualities in spades.

standard on the LE and 19-inchers are available as an option on the SE eightpassenger V6 model. The Sienna was remodeled in 2011 with a sleeker, more athletic look. One great innovation is the power door system that allows the two sliding side doors and the rear hatch to be opened and closed with simply a push of a button on the key fob. Our XLE tester went one step further; you simply pull on the sliding side door handle to activate the door. Limited Edition models also get a dual power moonroof — the front tilts and slides and the rear one simply slides. Another handy feature in the Limited package is auto- tilting side mirrors that angle downwards when reverse is engaged to help see the curb when parallel parking and the pavement markers when backing into a parking spot.

With the recent 2012 kickoff of the B.C. Football Conference’s Tier II Junior League, Terry Kehoe is realizing a dream. Two years ago, the Richmond man proposed a spring league to complement the existing community Midget Division and the B.C. secondary schools’ senior programs in the Greater Vancouver area. And with four communities—Richmond (Raiders), Burnaby (Lions), Vancouver (Trojans) and North Delta (Longhorns)— joining forces, that’s now a reality. “This is really the first collaborative effort to benefit existing community, high school and junior programs,” said Kehoe, who served briefly as the committee chair before stepping down in favour of former B.C. Lion Cory Philpott. Kehoe estimates as many as 300 graduating players from Midget and high school programs

and enhance the continuity of player participation, player development and coaching development. “This initiative will also provide tackle football, within Football BC, with

an infrastructure that meets with the long-term development goals of the federal government sports strategy of Playground to Podium,” he said. See Page 32

Homebuyers looking for sustainable developments

Cressey aims to reduce eco footprint With the world celebrating Earth Day on April 22, now is a great time to be thinking about eco-friendly living. Hani Lammam, vice-president of development and acquisitions for Cressey Development Group, says the company always keeps it in mind. One of the best ways to ensure an eco-friendly design is to build projects that will stand the test of time, Lammam says. “We put up buildings that will be around for 100 years,” he says, adding that reducing your environmental footprint is one of the best things a homeowner can do. He says that a multi-family development is more

sustainable than a single-family home, as it allows resources to be shared. One of the biggest energy-suckers in a home is the heating and cooling system, so Cressey always devotes time to making it energy-efficient. “We avoid electrical baseboard heating,” Lammam says. “We use heat pumps instead, because they can be shared within the building.” They also try to foster urban agriculture with large outdoor spaces so homeowners can grow their own food. “The Cressey kitchen has become a standard in our industry,” Lammam says. “But it’s what’s used in the kitchen that is important.”

market,” says Castro. Woodbridge chose not to include amenities such as a fitness facility and a pool, instead preferring to keep maintenance fees low. They range from

$125.94 to $165.72 per month. Homes start at $279,900. For more information, check out www. liveatlarue.com or call 604-575-2263 or Castro at 778-885-5790.

‘A different style of home’

Finding a home at Woodbridge’s La Rue by Kerry Vital

Surrey’s Clayton Heights neighbourhood is welcoming Woodbridge Homes to the block with La Rue. Truly “the street you want to live on,” La Rue features a collection of 26 twobedroom and flex space, three- and four-bedroom townhomes in its first phase. “The neighbourhood is very familyoriented,” says sales manager Andrea Castro, adding that she herself lives in the area with her children.

This is a fantastic way to get into the market,” says sales manager Andrea Castro.

The homes are spacious and immediately inviting, with their French textured stucco details on the exterior and French Country-inspired landscaping. Architect Robert Cicozzi designed the homes with a Georgian influence in mind, and elegant wrought-iron fences surround the private yards that come standard with every home. Window boxes filled with colourful flowers just add to the beauty of the development. There is a private deck on every home, and the tandem garages or long driveways give you plenty of space to leave your vehicles behind while you take advantage of the

walkability of the neighbourhood. Inside, your home will be no less amazing. The kitchens are fantastic, with ceramic tile backsplashes, Victorian-profile cabinets with crown mouldings and oil-rubbed bronze hardware, and stone countertops. Chic stainless-steel appliances and an undermount sink are perfect for your every culinary need, while the pot lighting is an elegant touch. The lovely finishes extend into the ensuite bathrooms, which also feature stone countertops. An oversized shower with a semi-frameless glass door or a separate tub and shower combination are odes to luxury, while the decorative vanity lights and large mirrors will put everyone in the most flattering light. Most homes feature his-and-hers sinks, so you’ll no longer be fighting for counter space in the morning. Nine-foot ceilings on the main level demonstrate the easy sense of space that is inherent in each home, while the wood laminate flooring in the main living areas and trackless nylon carpet on the stairs and in the bedrooms and upper level hallways are touches that almost seem like the cherry on the top of the perfect home sundae. One of the best parts of the project is the neighbourhood, Castro says. Impossibly close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment, La Rue is also near both elementary and secondary schools, and will include a 1,600-square-foot playground and parks on almost every corner. “This is a fantastic way to get into the

Submitted photos

Woodbridge Homes’ La Rue is already garnering buzz in Clayton Heights. With its Georgian-inspired architecture, above, the townhomes are a great addition to the neighbourhood. The bathrooms feature oversized showers, top, while the laminate flooring in the living areas are complemented by the Victorian-profile cabinets and oil-rubbed bronze hardware in the kitchens, above middle.

talent, Kehoe added. To keep expenses low and ensure the project got off the ground, Kehoe initially proposed to keep the new league at four teams—all north of the Fraser River which he felt was most underserved. But it already appears the league will double in size next year, with strong interest from other community football associations in Greater Vancouver. “The whole end goal for me was to get more players on the field,” said Kehoe. “I hope everyone realizes the benefits now.” •Richmond Raiders are 0-2 in league play, losing their season-opener to North Delta 36-0 two weeks ago and 29-6 to Vancouver last Sunday at Minoru Park. Richmond hosts Burnaby (1-2) this Sunday (April 22) at noon at Minoru Park.

With the players 18, 19 and 20 years old, Kehoe said the new league—two weeks into its threemonth schedule—also provides a venue for the late bloomers or those individuals hoping to play university football but not yet able to meet entry requirements. “It gives them a chance to stay in football while they’re working or going to school to get their grades up so they can transfer (to a university program) in three or four years,” he said, noting an individual is eligible to play university football up to seven years following their high school graduation. The new league is a potential pipeline for junior teams which, along with university teams, may welcome the opportunity to recruit more local

HAPPY THOUGHTS

Happy 50th Birthday David!!! You’re as healthy and young as ever! We love you more & more each day. Yolanda, Joshua & Sean

CONROY, Dorothy Gresley

passed away gently on April 12, 2012, with her family at her side. Dorothy was born in 1914, in Dyserth N. Wales, to Elizabeth and Robert. Dorothy proudly served her country during the Second World War as a nurse in the RAF before immigrating to Canada in 1949. She is predeceased by her husband James Morton Conroy (d1994), parents, and 11 brothers and sisters. Dorothy is lovingly survived by her son, Richard, and her daughters Genie (Chris), Vikki, and Geri (Peter). She will be greatly missed by her 10 grandchildren: Melanie (Mike), Jesse (Swad), Justin (Duyen), Sean, Julianna, Jennifer (David), Jill (Warren), Josh, Melissa, Andrea and her 3 great-grandchildren: Ava, Eli, and Sophie. Dorothy will be remembered for her fruitcakes, grilled cheese sandwiches, and her lessons on the “proper� way to make a cup of tea. Dorothy had a great sense of tradition, innate sense of nurturing and a remarkable commitment to walking. Dorothy enjoyed Coronation Street, white wine, and Christmas. The family would like to thank the staff at Rosewood Manor, Richmond Hospital (3N) and Dr. Vortel for their supportive and compassionate care.

The cherry trees have been planted as part of a 12-year initiative funded by BC Wakayama Kenjin Kai. The Cherry Tree Planting Project honours the Japanese pioneers who worked and lived in Steveston and celebrates the deep roots of Japanese-Canadians in the community to this day. In total, 255 Akebono cherry trees have been donated and planted.
