Tram barn now in red

Film festival screens in Richmond Page 3

Project that’s doubled in cost could sport a new colour by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter City council is set to decide whether a barn with a splash of red and a roof with less slope is good enough to house Steveston’s Sockeye Special. On Thursday, a council committee will consider a slightly modified design for a wood-frame tram barn in Steveston Park—nearly three months after civic politicians requested changes. The new option for council to consider is a red structure with cream trim and changed roof pitch. Birmingham and Wood Architects had earlier suggested a green barn and a roof with greater slope. In April, a staff report revealed the project to restore the tram and create a building to house it had doubled to $2 million. The tram barn design, created by Birmingham and Wood Architects, has more glass, interior upgrades and improved lighting over earlier plans. If built, the barn will become a museum for interurban tram No. 1220—currently housed in a closed shed in the same location at No. 1 Road and Moncton Avenue. But Steveston resident Dave Fairweather maintains the proposed location doesn’t honour history. He said the right location for the barn would be on a restored track closer to the intersection, where a tram station existed from 1902 to 1929. See Page 6

Google Trike goes off the beaten path Street mapping technology goes the next step to explore parks, trails, ski runs and museums by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Boldly going where no cars have gone before, the three-wheeled hitech vehicle dubbed Google Trike was in Steveston on the weekend,

capturing images of parts of the fishing village that soon will be available online. “I was surprised to see it in Steveston, as I didn’t know it was in Canada at all,” said inSteveston. com co-founder Nick Frühling, who was at the Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market when he spotted the tricycle, put down his two hot dogs, and began snapping photos. Google Trike only recently rolled into Canada after hitting parks, trails, tourist hotspots and university campuses all across the U.S. and the United Kingdom, according to Google spokesperson Wendy Rozeluk.

Building upon the foundation of its revolutionary Google Street View maps, which give comprehensive panoramic street-level images of most North American cities, Google Trike ventures beyond the view from the road. Many interesting places all over the world simply aren’t accessible by car, Rozeluk said. So the engineers at Google came up with a tricycle, which uses the same camera technology previously used inside Google cars, but is smaller, easier to manoeuvre and relies on pedal power.

Public artwork gets rework Original proposal was too RCMP and not enough Richmond, city said by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter It’s out with the buffalo and in with the salmon. On Monday city council unanimously endorsed spending $100,000 for a public art project at the new Richmond RCMP headquarters on No. 5 Road south of Steveston Highway— a design reworked from the artist’s original vision. Two months ago elected officials were presented with plans from artist Glen Andersen. “The Crest” would be a deconstructed RCMP crest, complete with buffalo and words reflecting the Mounties’ mission. “I feel the history and imagery pertaining to the RCMP are too rich and pertinent to not use in an artistic approach to this building,” said Andersen in his original artist statement. But council deemed it a little too RCMP and not enough Richmond. Now council is backing a new design from Andersen, who completely reworked the subject matter in his artwork to reflect the city’s coat of arms instead of the RCMP’s crest. “The resulting concept is a stronger proposal, with a more immediate connection to the heritage and environment of Richmond,” said the city’s public art planner Eric Fiss, in his report. An entrance mosaic set in concrete is now based on the robes, cornucopia and river of the city’s coat of arms—instead of a maple leaf border with RCMP insignias. Another aspect

of the work will now be “Disappearing Salmon”—a metal sculpture— instead of “Disappearing Buffalo,” an animal prominent on the Mounties’ crest. A rear-illuminated text panel bearing the inscription “Child of the Fraser” will complete the design. Although city council wasn’t shown the new design, Coun. Bill McNulty called it “a good change.” “What I see here is good,” he said. “It’s a tremendous improvement over the original.” Andersen is a creator of similar pavement-imbedded works, including a 14-foot diameter pebble mosaic at Holland Park in Surrey. City hall received 14 proposals from artists, and five were selected to the shortlist. A five-member panel selected Andersen to do the project. The panel included a representative from the RCMP, two from Emily Carr University, the building’s architect and a designer who’s creating a park bench for the city. The city’s policy for civic buildings is to spend one per cent of the capital cost of the project on public art. Although the RCMP headquarters has a budget of $36.5 million— making the art budget a possible $365,000—city hall is spending just $100,000 on the art project. That’s in contrast to the millions spent on public art surrounding the Richmond Olympic Oval, including the $7.7-million spent on Water Sky Garden. According to city spokesperson Kim Decker, the budget for The Crest is based on the former Olympic security building’s renovation costs, not the city’s acquisition costs. According to a staff report, the RCMP headquarters building is scheduled to be “unveiled” in September 2011.

City to offer arts groups more cash by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter City council is giving a $100,000 boost to arts, culture and heritage groups after a review found the civic grants program “perpetuated under-funding” to the arts. This year 12 arts groups split just $18,730 in civic grants from a pool of $542,522. Of those grants, amounts ranged from $508 to $4,060. A revised program endorsed by city council Monday would dedicate $100,000 for arts groups in 2012. “A robust arts, culture and heritage grant program is seen by many communities as a way to strengthen arts organizations, increase the cultural opportunities and support local artists,” said social planner Lesley Sherlock in her report. The new amount would bring Richmond’s civic grant funding of the arts to 50 cents per capita. That’s a significant increase, but still lower than other cities with populations up to 300,000, where per capita cultural grants ranged from $1.20 to $2.56, according to a staff analysis. Coun. Linda Barnes wanted Richmond’s amount upped to $175,000, but couldn’t find supporters on council. “I think it sends a message that we value the arts,” said Barnes. The revised program also makes $536,719 available for groups offering health, social and safety programs and $96,587 for those offering parks and recreation programs and community events. City council must still ratify the program and confirm the new cash amounts in its 2012 budget. Richmond Arts Coalition chair Janice Froese said she’s thrilled the city has recognized the needs of arts groups. “Considering the significant cuts to arts funding by the provincial and federal government, this is a welcome relief to many arts organizations,” she said. Although some provincial funding has been restored, Froese said there’s still “a lot of arts groups asking for a smaller piece of pie.”

Modra, set in Toronto and Slovakia, is among the films in the Your Kontinent film festival.

Your Kontinent explores world of film Five-day film fest at cultural centre takes global turn with multimedia twists by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Popcorn is taking a backseat to rice noodle rolls and barbecue pork buns. Cucumber sandwiches and scones also trump popped kernels at the fourth installment of a made-in-Richmond film festival driving toward a theme of interconnectedness. Your Kontinent festival—running Thursday to Sunday at Richmond Cultural Centre—has evolved from the New Asia Film Festival, with a new focus of celebrating international film and media arts of all cultures. Weaving new twists into the viewing experience—like serving dim sum and high tea during screenings—is a way the festival’s chief organizer sees as a way of combining cultures and art forms. “It creates a new experience of viewing film—not just sitting there and passively watch a film,” said Ying Wang, executive director of Cinevolution Media Arts Society. “(Richmond) is multicultural, but people seem disconnected from each other. But if you see the world—everything is connected to each other, so that’s what we wanted to try to explore.” Screening at the festival are 21 films, including full-length features and shorts. Audiences can also expect multimedia installations, musical performances, workshops and question-andanswer sessions with filmmakers. The festival is meant to be accessible to all audiences—not just film types— and capitalize on the development of new media. So the festival brings films outside of the traditional settings, something appreciated by most artistically minded directors. “Now people enjoy film not always in the traditional theatre. The kids, they watch films on cellphones.” Most films being screened are new —some having already been screened in major festivals—but most are making their Vancouver, if not Canadian, premiere.

Films range from the Dutch familyfriendly film Eep! (Dutch with English subtitles)—about a birdwatcher who finds a bird that has a body and head of a baby—and The Piano in a Factory—a Chinese film (Mandarin with English subtitles) in which a steel factory worker decides to forge a piano from scratch to fight for custody of his pianoloving daughter. A favourite of Wang’s is Toilet, a 103-minute comedy-drama screening Thursday. The Japanese film—filmed entirely in Toronto with nary an American Standard or Toto in sight—follows three siblings who struggle to relate to their estranged Japanese grandmother after the death of their mother. “It’s a very touching story about intercultural communication,” said Wang. “It’s very entertaining and very good production quality.” Modra tells the tale of a 17-year-old Toronto girl who visits extended family in Slovakia. When she is dumped by her boyfriend, she takes a cute boy from school instead. The festival opens Thursday with the unveiling of “Flash Memory,” an art exhibition by Paul Wong, who will transform the inside of Richmond Cultural Centre into a three-channel video installation. Keeping with the interconnected theme, more multimedia art is in store to festival-goers in the cultural centre plaza. Two shipping containers boasting displays of video artwork will be installed. The festival concludes Sunday night with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and multimedia performance before the screening of Old Partner, a 77-minute South Korean documentary portraying the friendship of an elderly man and ox who’ve been together for 40 years. A full festival pass is $88 or $70 for students and seniors. Single film tickets are $4 to $8. Special event tickets (afternoon tea with film, dim sum movie, closing night event) are $11 to $13. Tickets are available at the cultural centre’s front desk, 7700 Minoru Gate. Some events, workshops and exhibitions are free, including Thursday’s premiere of “Flash Memory” and the Friday night outdoor screening of Gallants. More information at

Stricter construction safety rules proposed in aftermath of Remy fire Richmond developer onside with Surrey fire chief’s proposals by Kevin Diakiw and Martin van den Hemel Black Press A Richmond developer whose multi-million dollar residential project burned to the ground earlier this year is welcoming proposed changes to construction site safety requirements. Dana Westermark, president of Oris Consulting Ltd.—whose 188-unit Remy condo project on Cambie Road was destroyed during a spectacular evening blaze in May—said he’s been working with the chief of the Surrey fire department, along with the developer of a Surrey residential complex devastated by a similar fire in 2008, and other stakeholders in hopes of addressing fire safety issues. Faster sprinkler installation, better security and a host of other changes may be necessary during building construction in order to

Intimidating witness nets local more charges A young Richmond man who is well known to local Mounties wound up in more hot water thanks to his actions inside the local courthouse. Dylan Raniga, 26, was in court early last month to face charges of breaking and entering. As the judge read out his verdict, Raniga is alleged to have made direct eye contact with the Crown’s witness, and then made a threatening gesture. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said Raniga’s actions were taken as a direct, overt threat to intimidate a witness which resulted in more charges against Raniga. In 2008, Raniga was arrested by Richmond RCMP in connection with a rash of late-night break-ins near No. 2 Road and Blundell. —by Martin van den Hemel

prevent the type of fire that hit the Remy, Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis said. Perhaps as soon as next week, Garis plans to introduce several tools to prevent similar fires that will be available to inspectors for all construction in Surrey. As president of the Fire Chiefs Association of B.C., Garis worked with a fire protection expert and developers in creating the guidelines that may become a requirement. That includes installing sprinkler systems floor by floor during construction, to provide fire protection for unfinished buildings. The challenge comes during the winter months, when water sprinkler pipes could freeze overnight and cause other headaches. An around-the-clock watchman who constantly patrols properties may also be necessary. Westermark noted that discussions with the Surrey fire chief are ongoing and that talks include having the watchman carry around a thermal imaging camera capable of detecting hotspots that are invisible to the untrained eye.

Talk also involves ensuring fire doors are shut at the end of each work day. With the cause of the Remy fire still a mystery, all possible causes of a fire are being looked at. Westermark said it makes good sense to do soldering, welding and other grinding work outside of a building whenever possible, to eliminate possible sources of ignition. In cases where that work has to be done inside, wetting down areas to remove hotspots makes sense. Introducing swipe-in stations at key points throughout a project for overnight security, would create a helpful record of where and when areas have been patroled. Westermark said the amount of damage to the Remy’s parking structure was less than expected, and he was hopeful that construction could resume in August. He said Richmond Fire-Rescue is also expected to release its fire investigation report shortly. Garis has indicated he will be adopting the new rules in Surrey immediately and will be encouraging his counterparts in other jurisdictions to do the same.

REVIEW Flying Wedge* Home Hardware* M&M Meatshops* Little Caesars Pizza* Rona* Visions Electronics* *Limited distribution

Customers had drugs delivered to their door like pizza by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A 22-year-old Richmond man has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for his role in a dial-adope operation that local police shut down late in 2009. Hao J. Ye was also banned from possessing a firearm for 10 years and ordered to submit a sample of his DNA for a federal database. Richmond Mounties spent a year

investigating the drug line, with the street nickname Jack and which offered customers a number which they could call, place orders for things like crack cocaine and heroin and have it delivered to their doorstep like pizza.

Tram built in 1911

Google goes off the beaten path to expand Street View

From Page 1 Fairweather also noted $830,000 of the project’s budget is to restore the tram to running condition—something he said isn’t needed for a static display. “It’s a total disrespect for the interests of the taxpayers,” he said. “It just isn’t justified; never has been.” Built in 1911, tram No. 1220 began service to Steveston in 1913. It’s now owned by the city. If approved by council, construction on the tram barn could begin in the new year.

From Page 1 Teams from Google reached out to privately-owned places all over B.C. and Ontario, seeking access for its trike. The green light was given for the Gulf of Georgia cannery in Steveston and other local spots. The trike has been pedalling around the local community for about a month or two, and will be

in Canada for a few more months, Rozeluk said. Count Frühling among the fans of the Google Street View technology. “I think it’s great.” While it doesn’t replace actually visiting a city, the convenience of viewing an unfamiliar destination before arriving there is helpful from a driver’s perspective, he said. Google also developed the Street

View snowmobile, which snapped images all over Whistler Blackcomb prior to the 2010 Winter Olympics. There’s also the Street View trolley, which is able to delve inside museums to showcase the genius of Van Gogh in Amsterdam, Holland, for example. Anyone wishing to invite the trike to their location can do so by visiting, and scroll-

ing midway down the page. Once all the Canadian images are collected and processed at Google headquarters in California, they’ll be folded seamlessly into the Google Street View maps program. In the meantime, anyone can see the inside of the Colosseum in Rome or their favourite American sports stadium from the comfort of their computer.

EDITORIAL: The saga of the tram


s we approach year 10 of the what-to-dowith-the-Stevestontram question, our outlook has perhaps wavered from a saveit-at-all-costs stance, though not quite to the break-it-up-forfirewood position. The well-intentioned efforts to save this piece of Steveston history have turned into soap opera, with the public purse being the potential victim. The tram, known as the Sockeye Special, bears the number 1220, and was built a century ago for the B.C. Electric Railway Company, and once operated on a line connecting Steveston and Vancouver until 1958. To recap, 10 years ago, the then keepers of the tram, the Steveston Interurban Restoration Society, threatened to move it to Surrey. That group had been working hard to bring the tram back to working order. Talks fell through. Next the city looked

at operating the tram between Garry Point Park and London Heritage Farm. That would have cost between $7- and $8-million. Developer Dana Westermark also proposed building a car barn/display space for the tram as part of his London Landing development project. The money would have come from the development cost

charges from the development. He figured the tram barn could be built for $350,000. What followed were complaints from residents who weren’t keen on having a tram puttering past their front yards, a rift between those who were restoring the tram and those who supported the tram barn, more threats of a move to Surrey, a proposal to house

the tram at Britannia Heritage Shipyard, etc. Finally, the city bought the thing in 2006, at least ending the biannual threats of moving to Surrey, but no closer to a permanent solution. The tram is still sitting in Steveston Park. Now city council is looking at the latest proposal—a wood frame tram barn in Steveston Park. In April, a staff report

revealed the project to restore the tram and create a building to house it had doubled to $2 million. $830,000 of the project’s budget is to restore the tram to running condition. The tram is a wonderful part of Richmond’s history. It’s amazing to think that just over 50 years ago, there was not-quiteso-rapid transit from Steveston to Vancouver. But the ongoing soap opera of the tram, and the accompanying soaring costs, reveals an underlying problem: Richmond needs a better overall strategy of dealing with its heritage. There’s Richmond Museum, with lots of artefacts and not much room to show it in the Richmond Cultural Centre; there’s Britannia Heritage Shipyard, with lots of space, but not much foot traffic; and now a $2-million proposal to house a tram that may not move very far. Council needs to look at a way that Richmond heritage can get a bigger bang for its buck.

y summer road trip to the B.C. Interior began as soon as the Trans-Canada Highway reopened at Chilliwack. The crew had worked through the night to clear a mudslide studded with rocks the size of Smart cars, along with a couple of actual cars. We headed up the historic canyon route from Hope to Yale to Cache Creek, the Fraser River still surging a month after it should have settled back. At Ashcroft, river rafters bravely bobbed on the brown torrent. The Williams Lake Stam-

pede went ahead between rain showers, bull riders benefiting from soft conditions while barrel racers struggled. We drove to Prince George and then Vanderhoof, the geographical centre of B.C., where the Nechako River looked ready to climb out of its banks. As we arrived news came that all this thundering water had done its work, toppling a hydroelectric tower at Surrey, briefly closing the Trans-Canada Highway again. One family member was unable to come down from Chetwynd for a visit. He was cut off by a staggering 16 washouts of Highway 97 north of Prince George in the Pine Pass, which winds through the Hart Range. This stretch of road has long been a contender for the most extreme mountain conditions in B.C., but one night of torrential rain tore it up beyond anything seen in my lifetime. This pass is the only road link from southern B.C. to the vast Northeast. The rains would keep coming around Daw-

son Creek and Fort St. John, disrupting farms, natural gas development, a coal mine and a wind farm with floods and washouts. The transportation ministry and its contractors had a winding track open through the Pine Pass construction zone within days, an amazing effort to restore essential freight traffic into the region that has emerged as B.C.’s main economic engine. But reconstruction will likely take the rest of the summer. We were back in Victoria by the time the Fraser River finally crested at the Mission gauge after six weeks of high water, its latest peak since 1920. During the trip, gasoline prices reached a high of $1.31, nudged up slightly by the latest increase in the carbon tax as well as political turmoil overseas. This is B.C.’s largely symbolic nod to the concern that extreme weather events are accelerating due to huge consumption of fossil fuels and emissions of greenhouse gases. I’ve been careful not to make any sweeping state-

B.C.’s carbon tax doesn’t exempt industry as its critics sometimes claim..

ments about the evolving science of climate change. But the sheer power of recent weather events, and the scars left by bark beetles and fires, are difficult to ignore. Australia has just taken bolder steps than those of B.C., imposing a carbon tax on the country’s 500 largest carbon emitters. The government proposes to collect the revenues for three years and invest them in renew-

able energy, transition for coal and steel industries and tax cuts for consumers who will have industrial carbon taxes passed on to them in the price of goods. Then the Australian carbon tax is supposed to convert to an emissions trading system designed to push industry into a cleaner future. B.C.’s carbon tax doesn’t exempt industry as its critics sometimes claim. The tax is imposed on all fuels used in industry, but hasn’t been extended to industrial process emissions. By far the largest greenhouse gas source in B.C. remains vehicles, at around 40 per cent of the total. • Another highlight of the trip was the visible resurgence of the forest industry. May’s trade figures show B.C. lumber sales to China have surpassed the U.S. for the first time. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

letters No. 2 Road Bridge has the right name Editor: I have no doubt that “Smokey” Smith VC was a hero who was much honoured. How many Victoria Cross recipients are there? The No. 2 Road Bridge, whose name was voted on and accepted, leads directly into Vancouver passing over the Arthur Laing Bridge. As to Arthur Laing being honoured: He was an MP representing Vancouver South in Ottawa for many years. Maybe this bridge could be Granville South/Richmond? The northbound bridges from Richmond/Lulu Island are: •Oak Street Bridge, •Knight Street Bridge, •Arthur Laing Bridge, •Queensborough Bridge (probably named after the neighbourhood). In Vancouver the bridges are: •Burrard Street Bridge, •Granville Street Bridge, •Cambie Street Bridge, •Second Narrows (now the Ironworker’s Memorial Bridge), •Lion’s Gate Bridge. With all of these names, you know where you are—or should be. Please leave No. 2 Road Bridge as No. 2 Road Bridge. P. Priestlay Richmond

Steveston neighbourhood is the wrong site for a recovery home Editor: Re: “Recovery home won’t hurt ’hood,” Editorial, July 13. To open a recovery home at the old Steveston Secondary School campus is entirely ridiculous. I acknowledge your point in denoting the recovery home as “a final step in getting their lives back on track.” However, as for now, the selected site is not be the ideal location to open a recovery home for the fact that it is in one of Richmond’s highlycompetitive area for housing. Countless families choose to reside in this area for their children’s on-going or future schooling needs. The chosen location for a recovery home happens to be in the heart of two public schools: McKinney Elementary School and Steveston-London Secondary School. Such con-

tingency will not only conceivably escalate youth’s hazard around the neighborhood, but also considerably deteriorate the calculable crime throughout the area. Moreover, this area in Richmond is known for occupying the most costly and valuable land. Once the recovery home open, property values around the neighborhood shall lead to further depreciation. Running a recovery home at the old Steveston Secondary School will only endanger and degrade the neighbourhood. Priscilla Chung Richmond Editor’s note: The recovery home is not going in the old Steveston Secondary School. It’s slated for a city-owned house at 10191 No. 2 Rd.

letters Turning Point didn’t address Ash Street concerns Editor: Re: “Recovery house won’t harm ’hood,” Editorial, July 13. It is one thing to be biased in favor of an issue and defend it; it is quite another to misrepresent facts. Your statement that “significant opposition” (to the proposed Ash Street facility) was “mean-spirited and highly misleading (implying Turning Point used “experimental” methods) is highly opinionated and prejudicial to the democratic and exceedingly civil process by which citizens all over Richmond conducted themselves in their entitlement to question the merits of Turning Point’s proposal. Far from being “mean-spirited” as you blatantly claim in your editorial, Caring Citizens of Richmond Society in leading the strong opposition to the Ash property proposal gathered verifiable statistical, scientific facts, and published documents in support of their arguments and engaged the proponents in a civil and intellectual debate. It demanded from the proponents official records to support claims of efficacy and long-term sobriety. It demanded a full disclosure of their economic, fiscal, and security strategies to address residents’ concern. But all it got were testimonials, anecdotes, and feel-good stories of tree planting and good neighbourly acts. Unlike the media that engages in sensationalizing contentious issues to engage and enrage the public, like your editorial, the Caring Citizens of Richmond Society gathered and disseminated factual accounts and information in support of its stance. It did not wave placards or

The grim reality is that no social program here in Richmond and anywhere in the world has resulted in successfully minimizing or eliminating the tragic consequences and miseries of substance abuse. gather in bunches to shout and call attention to their cause. Turning Point was born out of “good intention” but has it evolved enough to move “beyond good intentions” to warrant continued unabated expansion of operations with public funds? And there lies the conundrum we are struggling with. In order for us to support their cause, they cannot trumpet compassionate and humanitarian sentiments, and continue to flaunt stories of “how good their residents are”. They must provide good management and medical records of users of their services to support claims of efficiency in helping them achieve long-term sobriety. Otherwise, all they do is serve as a revolving door for those that seek temporary respite from their problems. Sure, on one hand, as a society we must weigh the ultimate cost of social ills against the detriment of inadequate social programs to deal with problems caused by addiction and substance abuse. On the other hand, indiscriminate acceptance at face value of success claims by

those holding themselves publicly as “the answer to a malaise” is inconsistent with transparency and public accountability. The Securities and Exchange Commission has stringent restrictions, regulations, and guidelines for businesses to be established and trade securities publicly but is there a government agency that meticulously regulates and monitors social program establishments to protect the public against ineffectiveness, risk contingencies, and inefficient and flagrant use of resources? Drug addiction and rehabilitation is a billion dollar industry throughout the world. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “Estimates of the total overall costs of substance abuse in the United States, including productivity and health- and crime-related costs, exceed $600 billion annually.” It further states that “In fact, because drugs change the brain in ways that foster compulsive drug abuse, quitting is difficult, even for those who are ready to do so.” And that is how gargantuan the task of dealing with recovery or rehabilitation, no matter how compelling Turning Point’s good intentions are. The grim reality is that no social program here in Richmond and anywhere in the world has resulted in successfully minimizing or eliminating the tragic consequences and miseries of substance abuse. Our only hope is in early prevention through education and outreach through our schools, churches, sports and community organizations. Ernie Mendoza Richmond

Culture of fear pervades parenting these days Editor: Re: “Richmond should introduce a curfew,” Letters, Friday, July 15. It’s interesting to read Katie Huang’s proposal that Richmond should introduce a mandatory curfew for teens and how it coincides with Andrea Phillpott’s article from the week before (“No more free range kids”) about the disappearance of children playing outside in the summer. In the last 20 years there seems to have been a dramatic shift in how kids are being raised largely due to an overwhelming culture of fear. Fear of predators in the park. Fear of your child not getting into the right pre-school. Fear of dangerous outside influences. I grew up in Richmond in the 1980s and played outside all day long throughout the summer. I had what they call a “free range” childhood. Our parents always knew where we were but they were not directing and guiding our every move. At the age of eight my mom would drop my friend and me off at the Richmond Square movie theatre for a matinee and pick us up two hours later after the show without a worry. We rode our bikes along the dikes, three or four miles

away from home without a parent. This was a year or two after Clifford Olsen was caught. Today, my parents would probably get a visit from the Child Welfare Office. Nowadays we live in an era when, especially in Richmond, the crime rate has dropped even though the population has risen and yet kids are not allowed to play without strict adult supervision and play structuring. Next time you go to any local park in Richmond count how many kids there are to how many adults. More often than not you see adults outnumbering kids. Kids are often busy playing with their parents rather than boldly striking up new friendships with other kids their age at the park. On the home front, kids are kept away from the dangers of the front lawn or streets in favour of the much “safer” activities that exist in the home like violent video games, internet chatting and mindless TV shows. Yes, this lifestyle will almost guarantee the parents that their kids will never break an arm on the jungle gym, scrape their knee on their bike or get their eighty-five dollar pants muddy from catching frogs in the ditch but what is it really teaching them?

Life comes with some risk. Is sheltering kids in a safe, dark house away from the outdoors really going to stimulate their development, self-esteem and independence? Is this current model leading to problems of childhood obesity, prolonged adolescence, stress, anxiety and depression? Could it be part of the underlying problems that resulted in the seemingly welladjusted, straight-A students involved in the Stanley Cup riots? If you grew up never having faced any challenges, fear or having to creatively problem solve because the adults in your life always took care of that, where does that leave you as an adult? Unstructured play and independence shouldn’t just be a nostalgic tip of the hat to a bygone era. I feel parents really have the best intentions for their kids and obviously don’t wish for negative things to happen but is sheltering, “helicopter” parenting and not trusting them to make good decisions for themselves really going to create tomorrow’s leaders and innovators? I guess we’ll see. Ken Moffatt Richmond

that with an attitude like these residents/parents have, a lot of our youth are just mirroring the selfcentered and selfish attitude of them. They want and have all the privileges, yet the mere mention of a recovery home for addicts and all that neighbourly help goes out the window. They simply don’t want it in their “backyard.” Such a lack of empathy! Well at least there’s some good that came out of the article—my admiration for Turning Point in the face of opposition and the urge to donate some funds to help them out. I’d rather spend my efforts to help those in the community when they need it, not waste my time having neighbours sign a petition because I’m worried about my property values. Get real! J.M.

Editor: This is in response to the opposition for the Women’s Support Recovery Centre near London-Steveston Secondary: how selfish! The 100-plus neighbours who signed a petition lobbying against it are only thinking of themselves. They have the luxury of living in this community yet are not willing to contribute to it, by lending a hand to those in need. All they can think about is that their precious homes will drop in value and the neighbourhood will eventually resemble East Hastings. The opposing residents should consider that a relative may need the help of the recovery home for addicts one day. (It’s a possibility, right? Or, are you in denial?) You may think that the riots in Vancouver last June has nothing to do with this. But I can’t help but feel

followed by Sweet Pea Soup (made with local peas), Citrus-Cured Sunshine Coast Sturgeon, Haida Gwaii Razor Clalms with fava beans, Pacific Provider Salmon, Queen Charlotte Sablefish with tomato eggplant stew and a dessert of Cherry Lane Rhubarb Tart. As we take our first bite of each dish, there’s a moment of silence, followed by heavy sighs. Tuesday night, I ventured to Giovane Cafe at the Fairmont Pacific Rim (across from the new Vancouver Convention Centre). Giovanne’s has long been a favourite of mine for a Sunday morning coffee and sugar bun (the size of a baseball with chocolate or vanilla pastry cream). As of early July, Giovane’s transforms for the evening into an Italian Wine Bar. I wanted to experience for myself the atmosphere: candles, signature “Formaggi e Salumi” plates, antipasta, salads, pizza, and wine dispensed from a custom-built Enomatic – a state-of-the-art Italian designed wine serving system (the correct temperature; correct amount). I’ll be back. Wednesday I had a mushroom burger for lunch at Romers Burger Bistro.

Located at the foot of Kerr Street off Marine Drive, this clever restaurant opened about a month ago. Surrounded by the early stages of mega construction, the view diners have is of the Fraser River and East Richmond. I’ve been several times. There’s a familiar face on site—Steve Ward from the former Papi’s Restaurant. Thursday, friend Jane and I met at Katzenjammer in Point Grey for Jager Schnitzel, sauerkraut, potato pancakes, red cabbage, spaetzle, and wine. We craved winter fare in the midst of this soggy summer. Friday night I met Chef Ralph Legay at his community garden plot. He pulled garlic and onions, picked kale and Swiss chard and bagged it for me. We then headed to Garden City and Blundell, to chef’s favourite Japanese restaurant – Kiriri Japanese Cuisine and Sushi Bar. The small space was packed, but we found a seat, ordered sake, and toasted with “Campi”. We took turns ordering—Scallop Special: chopped scallop roll wrapped in soy paper (no nori or rice) topped


with chopped scallops and mango. Yuzu Shiromi: tin sliced whitefish in Japanese citrus (Yuzu) pepper. Stonegrill short ribs: heated stone upon which we cooked the short ribs (next time I’d try the beef tongue stonegrill). Dunganess Crab Roll. Yuki Matsumoto, our server, brought Black Sesame Crème Brulee. This is the reason Chef Ralph returns. He said it’s better than his own. Yuki set a tall covered pot in front of me. I took the lid off, looked inside to see an assortment of fruit. I looked to Chef Ralph who just shrugged. Then he laughed—and I won’t reveal anymore as this is a beautiful presentation that you need to experience for yourself. Saturday, I attended Jayd and Bryan’s wedding, my daughter Maxine’s friends. And now it was my turn to step in front of the stove and get to work. Perogies, shrimp, quiche… On Sunday, I rested. Arlene Kroeker writes about food every Thursday in The Richmond Review.

Sports Editor Irish eyes were truly smiling last weekend, and not only overseas. While more than a few Guinness were consumed in Northern Ireland following golfer Darren Clarke’s victory at the British Open, at least a pint or two were also raised in Richmond to celebrate the success of local soccer teams sporting

the shamrock at the 32nd edition of the Nations Cup tournament July 15 to 17 at Hugh Boyd Park. Ireland won three titles at the Nations Cup: the men’s and women’s Open Division and the men’s Over-30 Division. Scotland took top honours in the men’s Over38 and Over-45 Divisions, making it a clean sweep for teams whose players are of British heritage. See Page 15

Irish net three division titles Specializing in offshore fishing boats

From Page 14

“The British Isles domination harkens back to the old days of this event (when Scotland, winners of a record nine men’s Open Division titles including eight consecutive from 1982 to 1989, dominated),” said Nations Cup chair Jeff Wilson. “But these things are so random and unpredictable. I really liked the makeup of the semifinals in the men’s Open Division (which also featured Africa and India). They were all great teams and it speaks to what the whole tournament is about.”

Shop 604-644-0424 For Craig Burnham, who guided the fortunates of Ireland’s men’s Open Division team, winning this year was especially sweet. Not only did their 2-1 victory over India avenge a 1-0 loss in last year’s final, but was against a squad and coach (Bindy Braich) he respects tremendously. “It’s very satisfying because we know the quality of India,” he said. “And I love the challenge of matching wits with Bindy who is an excellent coach and, like me, has a lot of

talent at his disposal.” Like his colleagues, Burnham volunteers a ton of time to his team. He said it’s satisfying, especially with national pride on the line, to guide a team of primarly Richmond F.C. players (complemented by some other talented players of Irish heritage from around the Lower

Mainland) to the top in what is widely considered the best summer soccer tournament in Western Canada.

“The biggest satisfaction is the quality of soccer we played, and the way we played together,” he said. “It was fantastic.”

MCauley and Burnham have known each other since their days in Richmond youth soccer. And Burnham said while he was quiet in those early years, he has grown into a quality player who commands the utmost respect from teammates and foes. “There are almost no words (to describe his value),â€?

As a youth, Steve McCauley could always be counted on to put forth a solid effort. Things haven’t changed much now that he’s an adult. “He is out and out a leader, the ideal man to have at the back,� said Craig Burnham, who coached McCauley and his Ireland teammates to the men’s Open Division title Sunday at Hugh Boyd Park. McCauley. 34, made history at last weekend’s tournament by tak-

positive individual and leads by example and is remarkably consistent. He’s the guy that carries the team from the back and even when he has an off day is still better than almost anyone out there. He has unbelievable character and keeps himself in fantastic shape. No one ever questions or doubts him.� Following his youth career, McCauley played internationally for Canada, helping its under-20 squad qualify for FIFA’s World Youth Soccer Championships in 1996. He also represented Canada in Olympic qualifying play in 2000.

X-Falcons retain Dolphin Park championship by Don Fennell Sports Editor Casey Archibald replaced Randy Nohr as assistant coach of the University of B.C. Thunderbirds men’s baskeball team in April, after the latter stepped down to pursue a career in the family business. Then last Sunday he ended Nohr’s two-year grip on the MVP award at the Dolphin Park Classic. But it was the combination of the pair of proliďŹ c

guards that powered the X-Falcons to the annual streetball tournament title with a convincing 8065 victory over the Athelites Sunday at Thompson Community Centre. It was the second year in a row the X-Falcons defeated the Athelites for the title and their fourth Dolphin Park championship in the last ďŹ ve summers. Only the Express, the original title holders back in 1986, have won more titles with ďŹ ve. Teammates Kyle Watson

and Novell Thomas said Archibald may have had better games, but not at the tournament. “I think I’ve seen him play better, but he was really good the last couple of games,â€? said Watson. “He can really light it up and once he gets going he’s tough to stop because he’s such a great shooter (as evident by his 28 points in the ďŹ nal game against the Athelites).â€? Also a member of the 2010 champions, Wat-

son said playing for the X-Falcons is a privilege. And each of the players recognizes that. “There’s a tremendous amount of talent but everyone is unselďŹ sh,â€? he said. “Everyone wants to win so badly and we say this how we’re going to do it. Everyone knows their role.â€? One of two former members of Canada’s national men’s basketball team (the other being Nohr), ďŹ rst-year X-Falcon Novell Thomas said it’s the fact

the majority of the team has been together for quite a few years now is a deďŹ nite advantage. “I’ve had to go against them in the past and it’s hard to match up,â€? he said. “They get the ball to the guys at the right time, and when you’re having fun and getting the defensive stops it makes playing at the offensive end that much easier.â€? While the X-Falcons, also featuring veteran captain Navi Sekhon, are

one of the older teams in the tournament, they use that experience wisely. Thomas said you have to be smart and take care of your body between games. “You play one game at a time, but it’s a marathon so you’ve also got to be able to save yourself (for the playoffs),� he said. Shan Nichols (whose girlfriend Lindsey Wilson earned MVP honours in leading the Border Patrol to a two-point win, 61-59, over the Old Birds in the

women’s division) was invited to play for the XFalcons. A former football player at the University of Arizona, Nichols said it was an “awesome� experience to play in the tournament. “I came up with the expectation of just sitting on the sideline,� he said. “And usually when you get asked to play it’s usually not a very good team so how lucky was I to be on a championship team?� See Page 19

Border Patrol commands women’s division at hoops tournament From Page 17

To a man, the X-Falcons credit Nohr for being the player who set the pace. “Randy is such a natural leader and coach on the floor,” said Nichol. •Women’s Division MVP Lindsey Wilson (who had 38 points in the final) said last weekend’s 26th annual Dolphin Park Classic 4-on-4 basketball tournament was another “great event.” “The weather was not the greatest, but that’s OK,” she said. “And while I hadn’t played indoors before it was fine and the fact it was so well-organized made it kind of seemless.” A former WNBA draft pick, Wilson suggested the quality of play in the women’s division (this is only the second year there has been one at Dolphin Park) was better than last year. And she added she’s confident it’s only going to keep improving. “The Old Birds gave us a good run in the final game,” she said. “That’s a tough game to lose and it could have gone

either way,” said Richmond’s Breanne Watson, a member of the Border Patrol. Instrumental in creating the women’s division, Watson, who played pro in Europe last season, said what makes Dolphin Park unique is that it’s tailor-made to be an outdoor tournament where players and fans can socialize and enjoy the sun. While this year’s weather— mostly rain—was disappointing and caused most of the games to be played indoors, “the people who make the event made the best of the challenge.” “Playing inside had a different feel as the courts were a bit short on the baseline which made rebounding and driving difficult because you sometimes stepped out of bounds,” said Watson, who had 14 points and 11 rebounds in the title game. “But basketball is basketball and every player had to adjust. I received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from Don Fennell photo both players and spectators Border Patrol’s Breanne Watson fights for her space despite the rain, which was against the Old Birds. awesome.”

McMANUS, SHIRLEY (nee French)

October 4, 1930 – July 12, 2011 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Shirley McManus on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at Vernon Jubilee Hospital with her family by her side. She leaves behind her devoted husband of 53 years, Jim McManus, and three loving children, Tamra (Shaun) Wilson, Robert (Kezia) McManus, and Tracy (Steven) Wilson. She will also be greatly missed by her seven grandchildren Connor, Riley, and Kyle Wilson, Sara and Patrick McManus, and Cameron and Kristen Wilson as well as many close friends and extended family. Shirley was predeceased by her sister Gladys Peters and brothers Jack and Roy French. Shirley was born in Herbert, Saskatchewan and moved to Surrey, BC in 1946 where she lived until she left for Montreal to work. It was there that she met and married Jim McManus in 1957. Soon they moved back to BC, eventually settling in Richmond. Shirley was a stay-at-home mom with her three children until 1981 when she went to work in the Flight Kitchen at Canadian Airlines where she worked for 11 years. In 1993 Shirley and Jim retired to Vernon, BC where she lived until her death. Knitting was one of Shirley’s passions and she spent many hours with her busy hands crafting beautiful things for others to enjoy. Shirley loved children and was always involved in her kids’ activities, volunteering at the school and as a Brownie leader, as well as cheering at sporting events. She loved to visit and spent many an afternoon sipping coffee happily with friends. Shirley and Jim traveled extensively all over the world; their last big adventure was a Panama cruise for their 50th wedding anniversary. The family would like to thank Sue Ward and the amazing staff at Polson Special for their unparalleled nursing care to our mom for the past nine months as well as all who supported our dad throughout these difficult times. A Celebration of Life for Shirley will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, July 23, 2011 at The River Club, 11111 Horseshoe Way, Richmond, BC. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to one of Shirley’s favourite charities; BC Children’s Hospital, War Amps of BC, or the Salvation Army. Cremation arrangements were in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155. Condolences may be offered at

I love all the attention I get and can’t wait to have a forever home for regular brushing, cuddles and snoozing in your lap while you read a book or watch TV. I have a beautiful coat that will need regular brushing, but I don’t mind, because I like any and all affection I can get from you!

> Parks Canada’s 100th birthday at Gulf of Georgia Cannery

Around Town Amanda Oye

Centennial celebration


centennial celebration and a lot of history brought people together at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery last Saturday.

Over 500 people came out to celebrate Parks Canada’s 100th birthday and experience Steveston’s rich fishing heritage. “It’s another way for us to welcome the community into the cannery,” said Karen Lee, public programs manager at the cannery. There was free admission, which allowed guests to explore the cannery’s exhibits, a craft station for children and, as with all good birthday parties, cake. A band of musicians was also there to entertain guests as they came in and while the cake was being served. A tour guide dressed up as a fisherman took groups around the site, giving them an idea through the story of his character, of what life as a fisherman was like. “It’s just a different way to engage with the public,” said Lee. “It makes the history of Steveston more relatable,” she said. The cannery is owned by Parks Canada but is currently being run by the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, a non-profit organization. Representatives from the cannery were also at Stanley Park on Saturday, along with other Parks Canada sites, to celebrate the centennial. Amanda Oye covers the social scene for The Review.
