Steveston ‘scramble’ a ﬁrst in B.C. City to spend $600,000 on Moncton and No. 1 Road intersection by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A concept for an intersection found in major cities around the world is coming to Steveston. Backed by a city council vote Tuesday, the four-way stop at No. 1 Road and Moncton Street will become the Steveston “scramble”—a $600,000 signalized intersection allowing pedestrians to walk in any direction, including diagonally—by fall. “It’s about time,” said Coun. Linda Barnes, chair of council’s public works and transportation committee. “We’ve been struggling with that corner for such a very long time.” It will be the ﬁrst scramble intersection in B.C. Construction is set to begin mid-September and be complete by the end of October. As the primary gateway to Steveston Village, the intersection is a
chaotic mix of vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians on busy summer weekends where “confusion” reigns, according to transportation planners. The scramble aims to put a higher priority on pedestrians and promote walking in the village, planners say. “We’re becoming much more densiﬁed and pedestrian friendly,” said Barnes. “Anytime I’ve seen these they’ve been in a downtown area where there’s a lot of pedestrians.” Barnes said she resisted a signalized intersection in the past, concerned it would lead to motorists speeding into the village. But planners believe they’ve put the brakes on that by designing a raised intersection with a new speed limit of 30 km/h on approaches and within the village. Other details include a special surface treatment featuring a pattern designed by Carlyn Yandle (a Vancouver artist and former Richmond Review editor) and left turn bays at all four approaches. “This special treatment at the gateway corner of the historic Steveston Village area will further provide a pedestrian friendly environment for this popular location,” said Sonali Hingorani in a report. Organizers of the ﬂedgling Sockeye Spin bicycle race in the village have expressed concern the raised design will affect the race course.
A raised intersection featuring a pattern will encourage pedestrians to cross the road in any direction.
But staff say the rise is gradual, with a maximum gradient of ﬁve per cent, which they say won’t adversely impact racers. The project is considered a pilot.
Whether it could be deployed elsewhere in Richmond remains to be seen. Barnes said an intersection near the Canada Line could be a candidate—if pedestrian trafﬁc
warrants it. Pedestrian scramble intersections can be found in Toronto, Ont. and around the world, including Japan, Australia and the United States.
Three strikes earns Internet cafe a one-week closure Cafe caught operating in wee hours of the morning by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter
A No. 3 Road Internet Cafe has earned a seven-day business licence suspension after being caught multiple times operating past closing time. City ofﬁcials found customers playing com-
puter games inside DNA Internet Cafe, at 1754351 No. 3 Rd., past its 2 a.m. closing time on three weekends since January 2010. Each time owner Ying Dong (Chris) Wang paid a $100 ﬁne for the transgression. Earning three strikes prompted staff to review Wang’s licence, and city council handed the suspension down Tuesday. In his report, licence inspector Victor Duarte said three infractions and “multiple warnings” have had “no effect on the conduct of this business.”
Staff concluded DNA Internet Cafe had an unfair competitive advantage over its competitors, who complained to the city about DNA’s late closing time. One complainant told the city customers routinely stayed behind to play games in a private room, which can’t be seen from outside. City regulations require Internet cafes to close no later than 1 a.m. Sunday to Thursday and 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Wang, whose business licence was approved in July 2009, submitted a letter of apology to
the city and claimed to have installed a system that now locks computers before closing time. “This will make sure no one can use any computers after business hour,” he wrote. Pleading for leniency, Wang told city ofﬁcials he was still learning how to run a business here. “We did not have much experience about doing business in Canada and we made mistakes,” he said. “We made mistakes, and we will take the consequences.”

Assembly land owners get equal treatment
Richmond Review · Page 3
Off to the races
Rezoning of community institutional lands won’t be discouraged by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Local faith groups received what they had requested on Tuesday night, when council unanimously passed a resolution relating to the future rezoning of public assembly lands. Tuesday’s resolution effectively means that any owner of public assembly lands can make a rezoning application to the city, and will receive consideration based on the merits of the application and be dealt with on a case-bycase basis. Contrary to a staff report which claimed “the threat of the loss of assembly lands is real”, councillors perceived no such threat. The reality of the situation is that only one of the nearly three dozen potentially-affected owners of public assembly lands had plans to sell and skip town, councillors were told. “It’s an anomaly,” said Coun. Bill McNulty, chair of the city’s planning committee. “It started off as if the churches were the bad brothers, and it’s totally wrong.” Council also officially changed the city’s position on the redesignation of community institutional sites, which had previously been discouraged and will now be dealt with as all other development applications. When the issue first surfaced nearly 18 months ago, staff recommended that owners of public assembly lands who were seeking any sort of rezoning, be required to finance, build and manage social housing on a portion of their property. This sparked an outcry from local churches, who came together to oppose the city’s position. After numerous meetings with city representatives, the faith groups spoke in united fashion at last week’s planning committee meeting, requesting that they be dealt with in the same way that other land owners are.
Home invaders to stand trial by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Five men have been ordered to stand trial in connection to a September 2009 home invasion linked to domestic violence. Following a preliminary inquiry, Daniel E. Wattley, Japjot Gill, Paviter Gill, Robinder Gill and Dalbir Gill were all ordered to stand trial. According to police, ﬁve men armed with guns and knives barged into a home on the 6000 block of Alderbridge Way and assaulted two women and three men. Shortly after the home invasion, police said the female occupant of the home had just returned home along with four friends when the suspects forced their way in. All of the victims received medical attention and some were taken to hospital.

Food scraps miss target for 2010 But city staff say collection numbers are trending upwards by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Richmond fell nearly 1,000 tonnes short of its target in the ﬁrst year of a $640,000 program to divert food scraps from the landﬁll. According to a new city hall report, residents in single-family homes put 529 tonnes of additional green waste—yard trimmings and food scraps—at the curb for pickup in 2010, compared to the previous year. The city’s goal was a 1,500-tonne increase after it rolled out its food
scraps collection in April 2010. But Suzanne Bycraft believes the numbers are trending in the right direction. In her report, the manager of environmental programs said in the ﬁrst two months of 2011— when most of the green waste is food scraps—the city collected 200 more tonnes at the curb compared to the same period a year earlier. Another positive noted by Bycraft is that garbage volumes have dropped “considerably more than expected.” In 2010, total garbage volume fell by 2,039 tonnes. The city estimates 21 per cent of household waste is food scraps, including fruit and vegetable peelings, meat products, table scraps, and food-soiled paper.
Rolex nets pricey penalty A local man has been ﬁned more than $5,000 in Richmond provincial court after pleading guilty to attempting to evade duties. Ya Bai ﬂew into the Vancouver International Airport on Oct. 27 on a ﬂight from Hong Kong when he was referred for a secondary examination. Canada Border Services ofﬁcers noticed he was wearing a Rolex
watch, and he said he’d purchased it in Hong Kong. He later admitted that he didn’t declare the watch in order to avoid having to pay taxes on them. Bai was arrested and his watch was seized. Last week, Bai pled guilty to duty evasion and was ﬁned $5,591, an amount equal to the duty and taxes he evaded.
Liberals vow to cut HST by 2% over three years by Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. government is promising to cut the harmonized sales tax rate by two percentage points over the next three years, and issue $175 rebate cheques for each child and lower-income senior this year. The program is aimed at persuading voters to keep the HST in a mail-in referendum that begins in June. If the HST survives, the ﬁrst one per cent rate cut would take effect July 1, 2012. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said the changes mean the statistically average B.C. family will see an overall tax reduction of $120 a year when the HST rate reaches 10 per cent. Until 2014, most families will pay at least part of the HST burden on consumers, estimated at an average of $350 a year. The current low-income rebates would continue to be paid, and $175 transition cheques would go to parents for each child under 18, and some seniors as well. Single seniors earning up to $40,000 a year would get the entire $175, and a partial payment for incomes up to $43,500. Senior couples would receive $175 for a combined income up to $40,000 and a partial payment up to a $50,000 income. Falcon said with the rebate cheques taken into account, the majority of families are better off with an 11 per cent HST rate. Once the rate falls to 10 per cent, all income brackets are better off than they were under the old provincial sales tax at seven per cent, he said. To keep the government’s deﬁcit reduction plan on track, Falcon is proposing to raise the general corporate income tax rate two points to 12 per cent, and delay a small business tax cut scheduled for next year.

Homeless shift from street to shelters by Jeff Nagel Black Press The number of Metro Vancouver homeless people is almost the same as three years ago, but the latest count has found the number living on the streets is down sharply thanks to the opening of new shelters and transition housing. Volunteers who fanned out March 16 for the Metro Vancouver Homeless Count found 2,623 homeless, down slightly from 2,660 in 2008. The shift from the street to shelter was dramatic. Unsheltered street homeless were down 54 per cent to 731 from 1,574 three years ago, while the number in shelters rose 74 per cent from 1,086 to 1,892. The biggest drops in street homeless were found in Vancouver (down from 815 to 145), Surrey (down from 307 to 231), the Tri-Cities (down from 76 to 27) and New Westminster (down from 72 to 39.) Maple Ridge was the only city where the number of street homeless rose – from 40 to 61. In Richmond, 48 homeless people were countd, down from 56. “It looks to me like we have begun to turn the corner,” said James Pratt, spokesman for the Greater Vancouver Shelter Strategy. “There’s much more to be done. We have to keep our eye on the prize of eliminating homelessness.” Vancouver added new shelters

ahead of the 2010 Winter Olympics, three of which continue to operate with 340 year-round spaces. A new 55-bed shelter also opened in Langley since 2008 and another is opening in the Tri-Cities. More than 1,700 new supportive housing units have been built by the province in Metro Vancouver or converted using old hotels over the last three years. “It’s starting to have some effect,” said Housing Minister Rich Coleman. “When you can stem the tide and start to see the reversal, it’s really good.” He said another 500 housing units are still slated to be built in the Metro Vancouver area, plus an additional 150 further east in the Fraser Valley. The huge drop in in street homeless in Vancouver means Surrey now has the largest number of street homeless in the region. “A lot of resources have been poured into Vancouver,” said Surrey Coun. Judy Villeneuve, vicechair of Metro’s housing committee. That was understandable in the lead-up to the Olympics, but Villeneuve is looking to see more assistance spread elsewhere in the region. She said Surrey has six outreach workers compared to 17 in Vancouver who help contact the homeless and work to get them into shelter or housing. Despite the disparity, she said, South Fraser Community Services

succeeded in ﬁnding homes for almost 700 homeless people in the three years since the 2008 count. “This winter’s shelters were not utilized to full capacity,” Villeneuve said. “That’s a really good sign.” Count organizers say the province’s decision to fund shelters to run 24 hours a day rather than just overnight has also made it easier for outreach workers to ﬁnd clients. Volunteers counted 695 more people in shelters in Vancouver than in 2008, 62 more in Surrey and 33 more in both Langley and New Westminster. For the first time the count also included people with no fixed addresses found in jails, hospitals, detox centres and other transition facilities. A total of 109 people in those facilities were counted and included as sheltered homeless, almost all of them in Vancouver. It’s the ﬁrst count since 2002 that the overall number of homeless in the region did not increase. While most cities saw drops or stability in the overall number of homeless, Maple Ridge’s homeless tally rose from 90 to 102 and Langley’s climbed from 86 to 105, according to the preliminary results. The number of homeless youth age 25 or under rose 29 per cent to 349. Nearly a quarter of the homeless people counted across the region were aboriginal.
Consumers have to pay the HST on the end product. But since businesses no longer pay embedded taxes during the manufacturing process, their savings can be passed onto the consumer.

EDITORIAL: Citing sources key for city staff To the untrained eye, the content of city staff reports to council might be perceived as city hall’s version of the gospel truth. But as it pertained to a pair of recent reports that made their way into the hands of councillors, not all that staff said was entirely true and might even be construed as being misleading. Before we start criticizing city staff, there’s no indication that what they did was intentionally misleading. However, as in the journalism business, citing sources of information is key when making statements of purported fact.
A case in point is the recent furor over city staff’s proposal to alter the way public assembly lands are handled by city hall. Originally on the consent agenda for a council meeting in November of 2009, the issue nearly eluded the radar of local stakeholders, who piped up in the nick of time. In a report to the planning committee, a city staffer wrote: “the threat of the loss of assembly lands is real...” But this was challenged by councillors, who later learned straight from the horse’s mouth that of the nearly three dozen public assembly land owners, only one
was considering selling. In another report to council, regarding composting and recycling, another issue that’s likely irking local homeowners was dismissed. If you’ve ever used those commercially-available paper bags for lawn clippings, you’ll know that after a couple of days, the bottom tends to fall out of them, leaving those clippings dumped on the curbside and a mess to be cleaned up after collection day. City staff suggested in a report: This can be managed by ensuring the bags are not over-ﬁlled and avoiding prolonged exposure to rain.
Trouble is, much of the moisture comes from the decomposing grass itself, meaning even if you keep the bags out of the weather, they’ll still rot out the bottom after a few days. This of course is a problem that the makers of these lawn clipping bags need to address, but homeowners don’t deserve the ﬁnger pointed at them. Perhaps city staff should be asked to cite the source of their information.

B.C. Views Tom Fletcher
y feedback on the harmonized sales tax debate is running hotter as taxpayers awaited Premier Christy Clark’s “bold” changes to the tax announced yesterday. In response to several angry readers, I will restate what I had hoped was obvious by now. All but the poorest consumers (myself included) are paying more tax under the HST than they were under the old provincial sales tax. The richest pay by far the most. The “embedded” PST has been removed from many products, but evidence isn’t yet clear that this is being passed on to consumers, as economists predict. What is clear is that businesses are benefiting. What is still in dispute is what businesses are helped most. Doug Donaldson, the NDP MLA for Stikine, objected to my statement last week that he was wrong about the HST beneficiaries being “Liberal donor corporations.” So again I will state the obvious, that forest, mining and other resource companies donate to the B.C. Liberals. (The NDP is on record as wanting to increase corporate income and capital taxes.) Donaldson goes wrong
Tom Fletcher/Black Press ﬁle photo Finance MInister Kevin Falcon announced the HST would be reduced by two per cent over three years on Wednesday.
when he specifies “corporations” rather than small business. Consider the forest industry. Over the past 20 years the entire B.C. industry contracted out its harvesting operations, based on the welltested principle that independent contractors are more efficient than inflexible, strike-prone major forest operators. That has been a painful process, not just economically but in terms of worker safety. But it’s exactly the kind of global-market shift that is being imposed on B.C. As mentioned last week, you may not like that, but you shouldn’t believe those who try to pretend it’s not happening. And those big “corporations” had their major machinery and equipment exempted
from sales tax long before the HST. It’s the small contractors who are now getting the benefit. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston notes that anyone can incorporate for tax purposes. It’s common for doctors, dentists and lawyers such as Ralston. But is it practical to expect the owner-operator of a logging truck to do that? The independent truck drivers I’ve met are more concerned about paying their next fuel bill than hiring a lawyer to incorporate them. Increasingly it is immigrants who drive trucks, out-working the resident population to get ahead as immigrants have always had to do. Speaking of immigrants, the situation in Vancouver real estate
is worth noting. One of the things HST was supposed to severely depress was high-end new housing, now subject to the seven-per-cent provincial portion of HST once the prices exceeds $525,000. What has happened? Offshore buyers are pushing costs out of the reach of B.C. residents who aspire to an ocean view. In many cases these are “satellite families,” taking advantage of our clean, stable, safe jurisdiction on the Pacific Rim. Mum may drive the kids to private school in a Range Rover, but the family reports little or no Canadian income. The only way these residents will pay a share is through consumption taxes. I have also argued that migration of retirees will
dominate B.C.’s population growth in the coming years. This is another group that reports less income but has significant consumption. A recent BC Stats study shows that I overstated the impact of retirees. Since 1961, only seven per cent of migrants to B.C. have been 65 or older. Younger people are coming here to work, and increasingly they will be self-employed or in small business. The NDP supports lowering small business income tax to zero. They should also support the HST. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press newspapers. He can be reached at tfletcher@ blackpress.ca.

Where is consumer protection against dentist fees ?
So much for Garry Point being open and natural
Editor: Those like me with no dental insurance are subject to a dentist’s discretions. They have no regulation for charging customers. To pull a tooth, you may pay equal to what you would be getting for a week’s work if you have one or half of your income from the old pension. Imagine what you would pay to a dentist for a root canal? As a patient suffering from painful toothache, I feel vulnerable and I cannot negotiate a deal with the receptionist. I go humbly to the chair and open my mouth. On the way out I stop at reception with my mouth shut to see how much was the damage not to my teeth but to my wallet. When I hear her telling me the cost I wanted to cry not from pain, but from my bill. My face turned yellow and before I fainted she says you don’t need to pay all of it but you can pay monthly. She suggests adding another pill to my already accumulated ones. Regardless of whether I pay once or over one year, I would not know or be able to verify those charges were right or within the norms. I do not mind the damage if it was within the ofﬁcial regulated price list. In the absence of any regulation for the dental fees, I can only keep my mouth closed swallowing the pain. I send this call to both the Provincial Ministry of Health and the B.C. Dental Association to apply rules and regulation to the dentists industry. Shawkat Hasan Richmond
Editor: I thoroughly agreed with Terry Davis’s letter “City doesn’t practice what it preaches” ( May 10). In 1992, when my husband died, I tried in vain to get permission to plant a cherry tree in his memory in Garry Point Park. The parks department said that people preferred the park the way it was —“windswept, open and natural.” Two hundred cherry trees were planted after this, which is ﬁne, but there followed, ﬁrst a concession stand, and now a complete and utter mess! Is this ﬁtting in with” windswept, open and natural”? I think not and shows just how hypocritical our local government is! That beautiful park is effectively ruined. Shirley Fulton Richmond

arts & entertainment Free classical music Richmond Singers concert Sunday celebrate 40 years The World of Music and Arts school will stage a free concert Sunday, May 29 in South Richmond. Latin Moods will feature Latin music with a classical twist, performed by ﬂutist Samantha Fu and pianist Anna Vavilova— ANNA SAMANTHA FU both of whom VAVILOVA teach at the school. The hour-long concert begins at 3 p.m. at the piano hall of the school, 6231 London Rd.
by Krista Ashford Contributor Forty years is worth singing about. This Saturday, the Richmond Singers is holding an event to recognize 40 years of choral music. “I love music, I love singing,” says Margaret Hewlett, executive director of the Richmond Food Bank Society and choir member. Hewlett joined the Richmond Singers two years ago and due to her already present passion for community involvement she saw the choir as “another community to build on.” “I think most people need to feel a sense of belonging. For us to have smooth, peaceful, meaningful lives, we need to interact with the people we spend time with,” says Hewlett. She says the Richmond Singers gives her that satisfying feeling of community. For All Aboard, the 40-year celebration, choir director Natasha Neufeld is pulling out all the stops. The program will be a compilation of the Richmond Singers’ repertoire from the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s. The second half
of the evening will feature more recent songs, including an all new arrangement of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” specially commissioned by Neufeld, premiering on May 28. Included in the performance will be Neufeld’s “choraleography,” movement done by the singers to accompany the songs. The event will “showcase the songs they sing the best and show off what they can do,” says Neufeld. The choir will perform gospel music, choral music in Hebrew, ﬁddle tunes and some rock classics like ABBA’s “Mamma Mia.” A ﬁddler will accompany the choir for some pieces. The audience will be taken on a chronological ride through the expansive repertoire, ﬁtting with Neufeld’s train themed evening. The event will take place on May 28 at Richmond Pentecostal Church. Tickets are $15 for adults and seniors and $5 for children. Tickets can be purchased through their website (richmondsingers.ca) and will be available at the door on the day of the event.

Although cloud covers the rest of the city, it is as if the market organizers and vendors had sent in a requisition for blue sky. I arrive about 10:30 a.m. (market is open from 10 to 4), ﬁnd parking (which isn’t a problem) across from the Steveston Hotel. I can’t help but remember the market’s ﬁrst day, four years ago, when thousands of people converged by the cannery and behind the hotel, to shop the almost 30 stalls of food and art. I had grabbed my bouquet of greens and some oyster mushrooms and left. This year there are more than 100 vendors. As the season progresses, more fresh harvest will appear under the tents. So, where does one start? I catch up with Michele Cupit, aka Wonder Woman, as she pulls a wagon through the aisles. “Something for the basket today?” she asks Glenwood Valley Farms. She adds the bag of tomatoes to her growing pile of goodies. A loaf of bread, bag of potatoes, bunch of cookies, jar of honey, a basil plant, canned salmon, giant bag of popcorn, bag of coffee, green peppers... Michele arrived at the market at 7 a.m. With the help of 11 volunteers (green shirts) and 10 ofﬁcial staff and directors (red shirts), and the market manager Paula Morimoto, set up was complete by 9 a.m. Wonder what “Doozers” means on the volunteers’ shirts? Doers; not dozers. “Do you have a donation today, darling?” Michele asks another vendor. “I sure do.” And into the wagon goes a tea cozy, followed by tea, “Summer in Steveston” hand lotion, cards, feather headband, cucumbers, Dam Good Soap, fudge, Japanesestyle chocolate… I follow Michele as she
The City of Richmond intends to sell Lot “K”, Sections 14, 15, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27 and 28, Block 4 North, Range 5 West, New Westminster District, Plan 19680, Except Plan BCP42299 (PID: 010-535-519) referred to as Lot K to Lehigh Hanson Materials Limited for $10,000,000, which transaction may not close until as late as December 2014. In addition, the City will receive $2,000,000 from Lehigh Hanson Materials Limited for park and trail improvements.
•On June 19th, bring your winning strawberry dessert to the Steveston Farmers Market for judging (judges: Darlene Tanaka, Chef Kieran Flaherty of The Sweet Spot, and Arlene Kroeker) and a chance to win some great prizes. Strawberries are expected to be officially in season by mid-June and the market, along with Bernardin, the Fraser Valley Strawberry Growers Association, Galloway’s Specialty Foods, and The Sweet Spot Bakery, wants to see what you do with the gems of summer. Prizes include a Bernardin canning kit/cookbook and a voucher for a flat of strawberries; $100 gift certificate from the Steveston Farmers Market; $50 gift certificate from Galloway’s; $25 gift certificate from The Sweet Spot. Registration is required. E-mail your contact info and name of your dessert to firstname.lastname@example.org.

loops through tents in the parking lot behind the Steveston Hotel, on the road beside the hotel, and along First Avenue in front of the grassy slope. The band begins to play, people stop to chat, some enjoy ice cream cones, others sip lemonade, and still others stop by La Brasserie food cart for one of the best sandwiches in the city. A block party. That’s what the market feels like. And while the market continued throughout winter inside the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, this ﬁrst day in the open air reminds me of a neighbourhood, everyone emerging after a long winter, ready to work in the garden, wash winter away. Smiles, greetings, and an armful of foraged delights. Salsa, a change purse, cookie mix, candles, French pastries, samosas… The Market hosts a community booth. Today, the Scouts are fundraising. Next time, it could be girls’ hockey, the judo club, a baseball team. Buy a hot dog and support local organizations. And this year, the City of Richmond donated two portable tap-water stations. Hooked up to ﬁre hydrants, these sleek units allow market attendees to ﬁll up their bottles and stay hydrated. Michele tells me that there isn’t a Chef in the Market today, but next time, June 4 and 5 (yes, the next market dates are Saturday and Sunday because the Tall Ships will be in Steveston that weekend), Richmond’s Chef Ralph Legay will demonstrate how to cook market ingredients at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. On June 19, Darlene Tanaka, a Bernardin rep, will demonstrate canning. With her wagon full, Michele heads to the administrative area, pulls a large basket and cellophane out of nowhere, and builds a gift basket with the donated items for a rafﬂe ($2 a ticket). Lucky is today’s winner, Danny Wu, who takes home a generous sampling of the market (value about $200). The rafﬂe money and the 50/50 winnings give the market necessary funding. “We are the market with the family heart,” says Michele. “Everyone here is like family and you don’t have to spend a lot to have fun.”

Xiamen General Chamber of Commerce delegates met with the RCC International Committee last week in Richmond. Pictured L-R: Fan Qinghau, Wu Quanshui, Zhuang Jingde, Dong Rensheng, Tony Kwan, Gerard Edwards, Michael Lok, Bonnie Chu, Craig Jones and Cai Linna. n September 21, 2010, Richmond Chamber of Commerce travelled to Xiamen to sign an Agreement of Friendly Cooperation between Richmond Chamber of Commerce and Xiamen Chamber of Commerce. Following this agreement, Xiamen Chamber of Commerce made its first visit to Richmond this week. The Xiamen General Chamber
of Commerce is a 160 year old 6000 plus member organization and the parent body for Chamber activities in the Xiamen region. This partnership aims to establish a cooperative partnership between Richmond and Xiamen Chambers of Commerce offering mutual benefit in the areas of trade, business and industry. The majority of the delegates who visited were land developers accessing the
viability of development in Richmond. Richmond Chamber of Commerce Chair, Tony Kwan showed the delegates around various projects in Richmond, including a trip to the Oval. “We are building on the Friendship agreement established by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce and the Xiamen Chamber of Commerce. This visit marks another significant step in building business relationships
and closer ties with the Xiamen Chamber of Commerce. We hope to continue to expand business opportunities for our Chamber members,” said Tony Kwan, Richmond Chamber of Commerce Chair. The visit was successful on all accounts. Later in the evening the delegation confidently told RCC that there would be many future business delegations from Xiamen.

Chamber conducts HST poll ichmond Chamber of Commerce has been polling its members over the last few months to ask the question “Has HST benefited your business?” The results were as follows: Over all, the majority of our members have seen positive effects from the introduction of the HST. Here are some examples of the positive changes our members told us about: • “Lower administration costs” • “Lower operating costs” • “I am more inclined to upgrade equipment earlier, which benefits our staff” • “More competitive
business environment” • “The billing process is cleaner and our clients were subject to GST & PST so they also find it easier/cleaner to work with” • “The accounting is easier with only one set of books to keep. To go back now would be regressive” • “The rebate of the HST is much more beneficial to us then
the previous GST/PST regime when many PST charges were not eligible for rebates” • “The PST was a nightmare to administer” For more facts and information on HST from BC Chamber of Commerce please visit their website www. bcchamber.org/

Richmond company has the cure for IT headaches
New Members, from page 14
Manpower Services he network’s down, orders are piling up and your IT repair man is tied up for the next week. Who are you going to call? If that kind of scenario has happened to your company or could happen, you might want to join a growing number of entrepreneurs who are calling on Innovation Networks, a Richmond company that offers 24/7 IT support services on contract. Since taking ownership in 2007, president and CEO Andreas Karakas has grown the company more than four-fold to 22 staff and annual sales of $3 million. “Wine stores, airlines, investment firms, property management, moving companies, we’ve got them all,”says Karakas, who’s riding the wave of smaller companies that prefer to outsource their IT maintenance.
“It doesn’t make sense to hire your own tec hs if your needs aren’t full-time, but you still want someone to call on when IT issues crop up.” Innovation Networks is a one-stop shop for companies with anywhere from 15 to 250 computers. It offers a full range of computer and infrastructure maintenance, training and project design. “We’re cheaper than in-house because we have access to the economies of scale and the efficiencies of standardized solutions,” Karakas says. “ Clients tell us ‘I want to focus on what I do best, which is running my business. I don’t want to worry about IT problems. That’s your headache.’ ” “With the increasing reliance on complex technology, companies are now more aware of how much they actually lose by being offline for just a few hours,” Karakas adds.
Karakas believes his company stands out because of its personalised customer service with the feel of a family business. “I’m not a CEO who hides behind a call centre,” he says. “You can find my home number in the phone book and talk to me directly. Clients know my staff by name and have personal access to them. Try to do that with the big corporations.” Karakas also attributes company success to its partnership since 2007 with the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) as a client of both the bank`s financing and consulting services. “They’ve provided major assistance to grow our business. BDC first supplied funding in the early days when we needed to move into bigger premises.” “But we also needed help with accounting, reporting and evaluating the cost of acquiring
new customers. One of their guys came in and he’s been fantastic. He showed us how to quantify what we were doing and set up a system that tells us if we’re making the right moves as we expand.” Such support is timely as once again Innovation Networks has outgrown its office space and needs larger premises. The company is also planning expansion into Ontario and is conducting extensive research and development on new ways to manage IT services. Karakas sees BDC as a partner in these moves. In particular, he recommends BDC Consulting initiatives such as the Marketing Booster Group Program. “These things do work. I was a technician who knew how to deliver a service. However, I didn’t understand a lot of things needed to run a

Jimmy Ng Memorial Street Hockey Tournament
Jimmy Ng tourney returns this weekend
he ninth annual Jimmy Ng Memorial Ball Hockey Tournament will be held this weekend at the Steveston Lacrosse Box, with funds raised to support local RCMP youth programs and the local chapter of Kidsport. The tournament was launched in September of 2003, a year after Richmond RCMP Const. Jimmy Ng was killed by a speeding Honda Civic that was street racing with another vehicle down Williams Road. Dr. Chris and Therese Ng will again be attending the tournament named in their son’s honour. They participate each year not only to keep their son’s memory alive, but to get the
message out to youngsters that speeding and speciﬁcally street racing aren’t acceptable, Dr. Chris Ng told The Richmond Review last year. An RCMP vehicle along with local auxiliary RCMP ofﬁcers will be on hand to give children a peak inside a police cruiser and even its trunk, while the RCMP’s Safety Bear will also keep youngsters smiling. The opening ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 28, and the tourney wraps up at 5 p.m. on Sunday. This year’s primary food vendor will be Fresh Slice Pizza, with $1 from every $2 slice of pizza going toward the memorial’s charity. Coffee, donuts, muffins and water will also be available for the morning games.

SMITH, Peter William April 9th, 1924 - May 11, 2011
Passed away peacefully. Born in Hove, England, Peter and his beloved wife Josy moved to Canada in 1966. After trying a variety of jobs Peter then became a Richmond Realtor for many years along with Josy. After retirement Peter enjoyed his years gardening, travelling and playing tennis with Josy until his knees gave out. After Josy’s passing in 2005 Peter’s health began to fail. He then became a huge Canuck fan spent his time watching hockey, golf, tennis and talking about the horses with his good friend Bill. Peter will be fondly remembered by his good friend Gail, husband Terry, children, Kirsten, Kelly, and Kory. Also remembering him are his sister Diana and her husband Michael and family in England, special cousin Pauline in England and friend Bill of Richmond along with many Richmond Realtors. No service by request. We will miss you “Petey” but we know you are finally with Josy now.

Westwind, Dixon set pace as participants ready for B.C. elementary meet this weekend by Don Fennell Sports Editor Defending Richmond Cup winner Westwind will have to fend off stiff opposition from Dixon if it hopes to repeat as Richmond public school champion at the B.C. Elementary Track and Field Championships which begin Friday at Minoru Park. A large contingent of up to 50 grades 3 to 7 students from each school is expected to be joined by young Richmond athletes from Die-
fenbaker, Grauer, Gilmore, Thompson, Woodward and Homma as well as others from around the province in the annual event presented by the Richmond Kajaks. Both Westwind principal Larry Hurst and his Dixon colleague Darryl Unger said embracing extracurricular activities like sports and arts often leads to success in academics. But they stressed that the emphasis is on student participation and not results. “The development of the whole child is something that is embraced
not just by staff but also the parent community at Westwind,” said Hurst. “A strong percentage of our students are involved in the arts and sport.” Hurst said staff at Richmond schools, such as Bob Riddell and Lee Hunter who are organizing the track teams at Westwind and Dixon respectively, exemplify the outstanding and growing volunteerism at the elementary level. The provincial track and field meet continues through Sunday.

Tech take over youth
π Technology can be a distraction for youth. ALEXZANDRIA WONG PHOTO
phone. I mean, it’s always with me. I turn to it for music, entertainment and socializing and it’s like it’s become a part of me,” Anna Aronov, a 13-year-old Richmond student admitted. “I’m not addicted to the electronics I have or anything, but it’s just so convenient to have things like cell phones, video games and easy internet access around me. The Internet is a great example. It gives me something to do when I’m bored, helps me with homework and allows me to connect with friends who live near or far. I mean, what’s not to love about technology?” she said. Research has shown that people who multitask with technology are more easily distracted and have more problems managing and recalling tasks than those
who do not multitask. Experts say that our brains are only meant to work on one single-handed task at a time and multitasking lowers our efficiency rates and can have long term neurological implications on our brains. When asked, eight out of 10 Richmond students admitted that when doing their homework while also on facebook, MSN messenger, and other social networking sites, it takes them far longer to complete their assignment than it does when there is nothing other than their pending task for them to focus on. The proof is in the pudding when it comes to multitasking. Although some are proud of their “multitasking abilities” research
shows that not only does multitasking lower our work efficiency rate, but it can also result in memory loss and shorten the attention span of a person. Barbara Gawa, a resource teacher at a local elementary school agrees. “Although social media and technology has advantages and disadvantages, they both seem to weigh each other out. Depending on whether you go to websites for entertainment, or for business or educational relations, either way, we all know social media has revolutionized to be a constant surrounding; one that will only become more dependable as technology changes and human connectivity and socialization evolve. The key remains in having a balance on how to use technology to our benefit rather than becoming dependent on it. “Deep inside, we all know we can survive without this technology surrounding us, but yet we still crave for it constantly... “Perhaps the key is to put down our cell phones and iPods and other electronics that consume our time and attention and spend some time away from this digital world we’ve unconsciously become a part of.”

s technology becoming too much a part of our everyday lives? Are teens and adults hooked on the social networking and easy information access that technology provides? Everything from cell phones to laptops are things we automatically reach for, whether it’s for work, for checking a schedule, or to simply start a conversation with a friend. Technology is rapidly changing and is becoming a “basic necessity” more and more each day. According to an online article by Zachary Wilson on fastcompany.com, 93 per cent of teens ages 12 to 17 go online, 75 per cent of them own a cell phone, and 66 per cent say they text. In fact, 58 per cent of 12-year-olds now have mobiles, compared to the 18 per cent just five years ago. Dr. Gisele Baxter is a lecturer in the English Department at University of B.C. She has research and teaching interests in popular culture, including internet and social media. “Post-Internet generations (not just young people) have come to depend on portable, accessible, efficient means of constant communication and entertainment,” Baxter said. “This does not mean they are governed by them; indeed, I’ve met several who are either deliberately avoiding their use, or using them to become remarkably politically astute in a global sense. “They do have a greater sense of themselves, often, as part of larger communities despite their loyalties to the immediate friends who are probably the principal recipients of their shared files and instant messages.” Take a moment to think about it: what would happen if your most valuable electronic item were taken away? How would you feel? Would you even be able to function and lead an unconnected, normal life? “I don’t know what I would do without my

EARLY BIRD FAMILY DINNER
hen Jade M c G r e g o r ’s dad handed her a voter information card weeks before this month’s federal election, the 19-year-old could hardly have pictured herself caring enough about politics to vote. A month later, the R.A. McMath Secondary graduate, who now speaks with passion about her first election, is considering involvement with a club of young Green party supporters at the University of B.C. McGregor, who is pursuing a bachelor of arts degree at University of B.C., was like many young voters before the election. “I just didn’t believe in voting without being informed,” said McGregor, who admits she knew very little about the parties at first. After scouring online federal and local campaigns and using YouTube videos to get an idea of the party leaders’ styles, she found the greatest connection with Green party leader Elizabeth May. “She seemed human, like she would be a citizen leading the people as opposed to a distant politician,” said McGregor. Sarah Au-Yeung, another 19-year-old from Richmond voted for the New Democratic Party because she wanted something new. “It’s been Liberals and Conservatives (in power) for so long,” she said, noting most of her friends voted NDP
for the same reason. The ability to vote for the first time gave 18-year-old Eena Sharma the opportunity to finally put her views and knowledge into effect. By visiting the websites of the different parties, the Kwantlen student informed herself of the different initiatives each party aimed to carry out, and identified most with the changes the NDP envisioned. “I noticed that many of the things (the NDP) stated they would... reform, such as pensions, post-secondary education, and household costs, were things my family worried about on a daily basis,” she said. Although the NDP led a very successful national campaign, taking the Liberals’ place as the Official Opposition, from Sharma’s perspective the Liberals and Conservatives carried out the most appealing local campaigns, as both Joe Peschisolido and Alice Wong were “fairly active throughout their constituencies and had detailed websites explaining why we should vote for them.” Young people might not be engaged in politics because they think their vote won’t matter, or they feel disinterested or disconnected from politics, said McGregor. However, Sharma reminds youth that “voting is one of the main ways we can help bring change to Canada, and while many apathetic voters say the government does not change even after an election, our most recent election proved otherwise.”

Success tips from an Ivy Leaguer
hen she pressed ‘send application’ on the University of Pennsylvania’s webpage in October, she felt that she had sealed her fate into one click. It was the most nerveracking moment in her life. Half a year later, Sunny Shen is as glad as ever, having been accepted into a prestigious Ivy League school whose acceptance rate is only 14 per cent. Looking back, she says passion, involvement, and focus are key. As a Gr. 12 at StevestonLondon, on top of maintaining marvellous marks, Sunny is extremely focused in everything she does and is busily involved in extra-curricular activities: executive in her school’s student council, editor for her school newspaper and yearbook, leader for her school’s debate club. The list goes on. Outside of school, she devotes her time to debating and public speaking, most notably through her participation in Model United Nations as staff or as a delegate. In a short high school career, Sunny has compiled a long list of dazzling achievements. As a role model, she breaks the misconception that extra-curricular activities are tiring. Ironically, she stays occupied to enhance her school work. “Most of my extracurricular activities are something I am passionate about, such as theatre and journalism. They relieve pressure so that I can work my way through school and such.” Along with theatre and journalism, Sunny has another hobby: horsebackriding. Unorthodoxly and unbeknownst to most, she views horseback-riding as an escape, not just as a sport. And for someone whose schedule seems absurdly filled, horseback-riding is a necessity, strangely enough. “I allow myself stressrelievers, such as horseback riding, because I find it too difficult to stay focused on
the ultimate goal 24/7. But even when I am not studying or fulfilling other commitments, I know that I am relaxing so that I can focus and work hard later on.” Horseback-riding not only helps but forces Sunny to focus. Distraction on a horse, as Sunny emphasizes, often results in an unpleasant fall.
Thus, her advice to upcoming students is to keep focused: “staying focused is crucial to achieving your goals. If it is something you truly want, it helps to keep your sights set on what you want to achieve. It helps you to navigate your way through obstacles and not get side tracked, allowing you to save precious time.”

Scooting in style
McMath’s Mackenzie Elliott has Euro-panache as she darts around town
othing screams “freedom” more than cruising down Steveston Highway on a bright red RayBen scooter as, “The breeze feels so good on a hot summer’s day,” says R.A. McMath student Mackenzie Elliott. This cost-efficient, environmentallyfriendly form of transportation takes her from point A to B in style. She often catches people staring at her when she rides her scooter. “Not a lot of people have scooters here in Richmond so that is understandable,” Mackenzie said. Owning and riding a scooter has both advantages and disadvantages according to Mackenzie. “It is fun, easy to drive and can run for two weeks on $4 worth of gas. It’s easy to find the perfect parking spot due to its compact size.
You don’t need a motorcycle licence as with only a Class 5 or an “N” you can drive a scooter. I would definitely advise others to purchase a scooter because it is better for the environment.” On the other hand, driving in the rain or during night time can be dangerous and you need to bundle up because it can be chilly. Since it can only go 60 km/h, this limits the distance that one can travel as well as the speed. Mackenzie remembers the time she took a ride with a friend along on back. “It sometimes takes a while to go a decent speed when there are two people on it so we were going the same speed as the person walking on the sidewalk.” While nothing dangerous has ever happened to her, she suggests wearing protec-
tive gear such as a helmet, jacket and gloves. “Living in Richmond is perfect for a scooter because there aren’t any hills,” she said.
While these scooters don’t go that far, she has still managed to travel to Vancouver to get the scooter’s regular tuneups at RayBen Scooters
on 4th Avenue. You can find a variety of models there such as the $3,000 Retro 50 model that Mackenzie drives as well as
bicycles, electric bicycles and converter kits. These scooters are easy to learn how to use and in 10 minutes one can get used to how the
scooter handles. Insurance for scooters is a requirement and costs $45 a month and a licence for an “N” costs $75.
