Pipeline proponent to explore new options Upgrade existing line, says council by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

Power cut after smart meter installed Technician tells their landlord he ‘knows it’s a grow-op’ by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A Richmond couple is demanding an apology, compensation and answers from BC Hydro after the electrical utility cut power to their home without any notiﬁcation based solely on a smart meter installer’s suspicion a marijuana grow-op was located inside. Teresa Tuazon told The Richmond Review on Monday that a smart meter was installed at their home
on Aug. 11, but the following day, power was for some reason cut to their 100-year-old house at the corner of No. 7 Road and Westminster Highway. When Tuazon arrived home from work that Friday, she was greeted by the hum of a gasoline electrical generator, the noise from which they had to endure for nearly three weeks until power was reconnected on Aug. 31. She and her husband Rick Flello were told by their landlord that after their smart meter was installed, the technician noticed something that made him notify the landlord there was likely a marijuana grow-op inside the home. Without contacting the couple, alerting the police, or giving some sort of advanced notiﬁcation, power was cut. Jim Nicholson, director of customer care for BC
Hydro, said the smart meter installer saw signs of tampering with the old meter, and notiﬁed BC Hydro, who then the following day conducted its own inspection and then made the decision to disconnect the power supply. “In this case for us, our primary concern is employee safety and homeowner safety,” Nicholson said. What was discovered could have put the home at risk of a ﬁre or something else, he said. But he couldn’t explain why BC Hydro didn’t try to contact Flello or Tuazon to inform them of the safety hazard, or why if this was such a hazard, why it waited an entire day before disconnecting the power. “We would deﬁnitely be happy to speak with the customer about the incident,” Nicholson said.

The consortium hoping to build a controversial new 15-kilometre jet fuel pipeline through the centre of Lulu Island that would feed Vancouver International Airport, will now be exploring alternative routes and means of transporting the fuel, Richmond council has been told. But Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said the city’s preferred option is to upgrade the existing line, and for there to be no barging of fuel on either the North or South Arm of the Fraser River. “We clariﬁed last night that we don’t want any barges anywhere on the river,” Brodie said Tuesday afternoon. At Monday’s council meeting, Robert Gonzalez, Richmond’s general manager of engineering and public works, presented a report to council which details what the consortium plans to do next. City of Richmond spokesperson Ted Townsend said the city has received a letter from the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation, which after much opposition from politicians and area residents, put the bid on hold in late April. Up to that point, the B.C. Environmental Assessment Ofﬁce had been reviewing the bid to build a fuel tank farm just east of the Riverport entertainment complex. See Page 7

Nicole Li to showcase the erhu Richmond resident joins old friends and new in Sunday concert by Bhreandáin Clugston Editor Nicole Li is showcasing the erhu in a unique concert at River Rock Show Theatre on Sunday, Sept. 18. Oriental Strings of Harmony will feature the Richmond musician playing in a variety of formats, including solo, duo and concerto. Li, who is known for her passionate interpretations, will be joined by Chinese and Western instrumentalists in showcasing the erhu’s unique sound in many different perspectives. The erhu is a two-stringed bowed instrument. It is similar to a violin, but it has no ﬁngerboard, is played vertically and can create a striking range of expressive sounds. Although it has been used in China for centuries, it has only emerged as a solo instrument in the past 100 years. Li is originally from Northern China. Her mother is a singer and both her parents love music. “My Chinese ﬁrst name is song,” she says. She ﬁrst played the erhu in school at age six when she and her fellow students were asked to pick an instrument to learn. “Everyone picked piano or violin and there was an erhu. It looked interesting... So my teacher said ‘Would you like to try that?’” She attended the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, and after graduating, Li moved to Richmond three years ago. She gives erhu lessons from her Richmond studio (with her students ranging in age from seven to 75). Sunday’s concert has been almost a year in the making. Many of Li’s fellow conservatory grads back in China have had recitals in the conservatory hall, but since Li and her family moved to Canada, she didn’t get the chance. “I didn’t have a chance to have a showcase of what I had learned in 16 years (at school). So I thought, why don’t I have
a concert here?” Thus, plans for a solo recital developed. She was telling this to her old teacher in Shanghai, erhu master Yong De Wang, who responded, “I will come perform with you.” “So I said, ‘Good! Because you are famous—I need you,’” Li recalls with a chuckle. Oriental Strings of Harmony quickly blossomed into a much larger event. Besides Yong de Wang, other musicians were added to the roster, including pipa player Guilian Liu (former professor of the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing), bamboo ﬂute player Jian Ming Pan (a former teacher of Shanghai Conservatory of Music), vocalist Ji Wei Zhao (former performer at China Henan Song and Dance Troupe) and yangqin player Victoria Lai. And then, Li decided to add a Western component, and included some musicians she was performed with in Canada: keyboardist/guitarist/bassist Ran Zhu, University of B.C. piano professor Corey Hamm, composer and guitarist John Oliver, bass guitarist Laurence Mollerup, American percussionist Erik Vanerstrom and Canadian ﬂautist Edgar Muenala. The concert will feature a mix of traditional pieces and unique modern works. The program includes the sombre “The Wailing of River,” the poetic and beautiful “Warm Are the Waters of Spring Rivers,” the joyful and celebratory “Csardas,” as well as the “The Charm of Tianshan Mountain.” Li also promises a interesting medley featuring traditional melodies from Canada, India, Japan, Russia and Korea. Oriental Strings of Harmony takes place on Sunday, Sept. 18 at 8 p.m. at River Rock Show Theatre. Tickets, $40, $30, $20, are available through Ticketmaster (ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000) or by calling 778-822-1620.

When it was pointed out that this incident happened more than a month ago, and BC Hydro still hadn’t reached out to the customer, Nicholson said: “It’s really difﬁcult to comment on that.” Flello said he wasn’t initially that upset about the power being clipped. He thought his new home might contain some sort of electrical ﬁre hazard, and appreciated that BC Hydro was making an effort to keep him safe. But when he learned his home’s power was disrupted based solely on the suspicion of the installer and a potential marijuana grow-op, that made him upset, he said. “That really pissed me off,” Flello said. “If he really suspected that, why didn’t he call the cops? If you want to come and inspect the house, come in any time. Just call me.” Acting on the installer’s advice, the landlord, Kal Mahal, hired an electrician to conduct an inspection, but nothing criminal was found. However, power couldn’t immediately be reconnected because Tuazon and Flello had made it onto B.C. Hydro’s “bad-boy list”—rumoured to be a list for suspected grow-op tenants—meaning they weren’t prioritized.
For some reason, in spite of nothing untoward being discovered, their BC Hydro account was cancelled, Tuazon said. Aside from the inconvenience of having the noisy generator in place—to spare their neighbours, they avoided operating it at night—the contents of their fridge and freezer spoiled. Timed precisely with the power disruption, their Shaw personal video recorder stopped working, as did the electronic components to their stove and their coffee maker seized up. Flello recalled the faint smell of burning wires at the time the power was cut, and later realized that the power supply cord to his Xbox unit stopped working. Luckily, he had a spare that works ﬁne. Flello and Tuazon believe their privacy rights were ignored by BC Hydro, which should at least have given them 24 or 48 hours notice of an inspection. Asked if BC Hydro would offer them an apology, Nicholson dodged the question, and said he was committed to getting all the details about the incident, and sitting down with them and having a full discussion. “We’re sympathetic to the inconvenience,” he said, but added that what could have transpired would have been much worse, such as in the event of a ﬁre.

CITY OF RICHMOND NOTICE Notice of Road Closure and Removal of Road Dedication and Intent to Dispose of Land
On the day Brian Flagel’s three-year-old daughter Elise died of cancer, it was one of the wettest days ever in Vancouver. It was 1991, and the same day when the then-director of Canada Customs Border Services had helped organize a friendly golf tournament at Greenacres Golf Course with his American immigration counterparts at Vancouver International Airport. “It absolutely poured all day,” Flagel recalled. To the point that Greenacres offered to refund the green fees of the golfers. But during the dinner that night, the participants decided that instead of taking their green fee money back, they’d donate it to the B.C. Children’s Hospital. That generous gesture got organizers thinking. Perhaps instead of the tournament being just about drinking alcohol and having fun, they’d turn it into something
much more positive. Thus was born the CanAm Golf for Kids, which today is gearing up for its 20th anniversary as YVR Golf for Kids, and is poised to top the $3 million fundraising milestone during the Sept. 15 golf/dinner/ auction at QClub and River Rock Casino Resort. Seeking outside expertise to organize the fundraiser, Flagel turned to his landlord, Wayne Duzita of what was then called International Aviation Terminals. The pair struck up a friendship that is now two decades old. During the event’s ﬁrst year, the original goal was $5,000, a number Duzita quickly pronounced was ridiculous. It takes the same amount of effort to raise $5,000 as it does $25,000, Duzita reasoned, so why not aim higher? Duzita said that he solicited 25 companies to donate $1,000 to be part of the initial event in 1992. The silent and live auctions raised another $15,000.

What was supposed to have been a one-year tournament was such a success that it continued. “Then we started dreaming in technicolour,” Duzita said. On Thursday, when locals gather to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fundraising event at River Rock Show Theatre after a day of golf at QClub, the milestone in the crosshairs is $3 million. The key to the event’s early success was the involvement of Brenda Eng, an oncology nurse. She visited Oxford, England

It is anticipated that Bylaw 8710 will be presented to Council for adoption on September 26, 2011. Prior to the adoption of Bylaw 8710, any person who is affected by this bylaw may make their concerns known by writing to City Council c/o City Clerk, 6911 No. 3 Road, Richmond, BC, V6Y 2C1. Any written submissions must be received by the City Clerk no later than 4:00 pm, September 26, 2011.
Construction advisory September 12–October 31 The City of Richmond has contracted Imperial Paving Ltd. to install pedestrian safety improvements at the following locations in Richmond from September 12 to October 31, 2011: • Installation of a raised intersection and new traffic signal with an exclusive pedestrian only phase (pedestrian scramble) at: o No. 1 Road and Moncton Street • Installation of new raised crosswalks across: o No. 1 Road at Chatham Street o Moncton Street at Easthope Avenue o Moncton Street 60 m east of Bayview Street, near Hayashi Court • Sidewalk and drainage alterations to accommodate the new raised intersection and crosswalks Work hours are scheduled from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. As this work is weather dependent, some work may occur on Saturdays and Sundays, and the dates are subject to change without notice. Traffic on affected roads will be reduced to a single lane at times. Delays may occur. The use of an alternate route is strongly encouraged. There will also be a three day full closure of the No. 1 Road and Moncton Street intersection in October. The dates of this closure will be weather dependent. Questions may be directed to Milton Chan, Senior Project Engineer, at 604-276-4377, or visit the City’s Transportation Projects webpage at www.richmond.ca (City Services > Roads, Dykes, Water & Sewers > Construction Projects > 2011 Transportation Projects).
in the spring of 1988 and worked for several months at Helen and Douglas House, the world’s ﬁrst children’s hospice. That experience convinced her to work toward building something similar in B.C., and in 1995 Canuck Place opened in the Shaughnessy neighbourhood of Vancouver. Former Vancouver Canucks owner Arthur Grifﬁths and head coach Pat Quinn, and fan-favourite Trevor Linden and their wives attended the ﬁrst Golf for Kids fundraiser. “That sort of put us on the map,” Duzita said. During one event a few years ago, $365,000 was raised. This year, the goal is $200,000, which would help them top $3 million in 20 years. What’s different about this event than many others is that it is entirely community-based, and not about corporate recognition at all, Flagel said. Today, between 70 and 80 per cent of the event’s proceeds goes to Canuck Place, but the fundraiser also supports Dreams Take Flight, CHIMO Crisis Services and Gilmore School’s summer camp program, among others. While this year’s sold-out golf tournament is being held at QClub, the sold-out dinner and auctions will be held at River Rock. The vast majority of the money comes from winning bids on the high-end donated auction items, which feature patio furniture, barbecues, trips around the world, a full membership at QClub, and golf getaways. Flagel and Duzita said the Vancouver International Airport Authority has long been a huge supporter, with president Larry Berg a regular speaker at the event.

A 35-year-old man has been charged with ﬁrstdegree murder in the death of his estranged wife, Coquitlam motherof-two Yating “Lancy” Hu. RCMP Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, made that announcement on Sunday afternoon, more than two weeks after Hu’s body was found in the waters off Steveston last month. Pound said two boaters who were out ﬁshing on Aug. 27, came across a suitcase ﬂoating in the waters off West Richmond, and apparently became immediately suspicious and contacted the police, Pound said. “This is a tragic outcome for the family of Lancy Hu,” said Pound. “IHIT is now focused on the court process and providing the evidence collected through the course of the investigation. It is possible the Hu family will find some closure now that their daughter/ mother has been located and may be put to rest.” Charged is Zhongming “James” Mou, Hu’s estranged husband. Hu’s parents, Yanyu Xiao and Muming Hu, who came to the Lower Mainland from China to assist in the search for their missing daughter, received this week’s news with a heavy heart. “Knowing what has happened to Lancy has been incredibly difﬁcult for the Hu family, but to be able to put her to rest has provided some peace. “We will forever miss our daughter,” they said in a statement through police. The couple were experiencing marital problems, and Hu moved out of the family home in Coquitlam and to a home in Burnaby, Pound said. Hu was last seen leaving her Coquitlam apartment on July 16, and has been missing ever since. Their two children are now in the care of Mou’s parents, who reportedly live in Richmond. Early on, police suspected foul play. Although Hu’s body was eventually identiﬁed through an autopsy, police kept that information secret while they conducted their investigation. “In order to protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation, the fact that Hu had been locat-

Amendment to the 5 Year Financial Plan (2011-2015) Bylaw No. 8707 The Community Charter requires that Council adopt a 5 Year Financial Plan each year prior to the adoption of the Annual Property Tax Rates Bylaw. The Community Charter also allows for amendments to the 5 Year Financial Plan. Subsequent to the adoption of the City’s 5 Year Financial Plan (2011-2015) Bylaw No. 8707 on April 11, 2011, additional opportunities and projects have emerged. The current expenditure bylaw does not include these amounts. Therefore the City is proposing to amend its 5 Year Financial Plan Bylaw.

The review was shelved for “up to 120 days,” a period which ended at the end of August. The letter indicates, according to Townsend, that the review into its bid and the route of the proposed pipeline, will be broadened to look at more options including those presented by Richmond council. That includes the option of placing the underground line along Highway 99, barging the fuel via the north arm of the Fraser, as well as upgrading the existing pipeline. But in clarifying its position on Monday, Brodie said the Highway 99 alternative “is an option only if this is forced on the City of Richmond.

“We don’t want any kind of a jet fuel unloading facility, no tankers coming to the city or a pipeline across the city.” - Malcolm Brodie “We don’t want any kind of a jet fuel unloading facility, no tankers coming to the city or a pipeline across the city,” he said. “That’s our deﬁnite preference.” In its letter, the corporation states that it intends to conduct a detailed analysis of spill response and planning, and review the Port Metro Vancouver tanker risk study, once it has been completed. In April, pipeline project director Adrian Pollard said: “The city said we should look at Highway 99 as a potential route for the pipeline and we are listening.” Representatives of the group formed to oppose the jet fuel proposal— Vancouver Airport Pipeline Opposition for Richmond, or VAPOR—also made a presentation at Monday’s meeting of council. Provincial government ministers were expected to make a decision on the proposal this fall following the review, which wasn’t expected to last more than six months. Brodie said he’s heard various reasons why upgrading the existing line isn’t viable, from the fact the line is privatelyowned to concerns about it not being in a set rightof-way. But Brodie counters

The provincial Crown corporation is replacing all analog meters in B.C. with digital smart meters, aiming to have 1.8 million smart meters installed in homes and businesses throughout the province by 2013. Richmond is one of the first communities to have meters replaced, and already there’s been cause for some concern. The latest story demonstrates more oversight is needed for the smart meter replacement project. In this most recent episode, a Richmond couple had their power cut based solely on the discretion of a smart meter installer. Apparently, the contractor suspected a marijuana grow-op was inside their East Richmond home based on sings of tampering. Without notification, power was cut. No grow-op was found inside, but it took three weeks before electricity from BC Hydro began flowing again. The installation of a smart meter at their home also happened to coincide with a number of electronics malfunctioning inside the house. A few weeks earlier, a Richmond man’s complaint to BC Hydro fell on deaf ears after his refrigerator failed immediately following the installation of a smart meter. Although these incidents rep-

resent a tiny fraction of meters being replaced, Richmond is one of the first communities in B.C. to get the replacement meters. In other words, more episodes like these could be on the horizon. Various voices have raised concerns about the replacement project. From contractors not being licensed electricians to smart meters collecting personal
Letter of imagined insults Editor: Re: “Headline was offensive,” Letters, Sept. 7. This complaint takes “being offended” to a whole new level, in fact, to the theatre of the absurd. When I read the Review’s article quoting a Mr. K.K. Wan, I took it as a compliment to the Chinese community, that they are wealthy enough to eat out often, that they like to share a meal with family and friends and their willingness to spread their money throughout the community for the good of all of Richmond. On reading Ms. Chen’s letter a few times, I was looking for what I hoped would be subtle humor poking fun at some of the sillier claims of being insulted, but alas, all I found were these words “racism,” “appalled” and “extremely offended.” This is yet another example of some people trying to stiﬂe debate and take away our freedom of speech by making us feel guilty about imagined insults. It appears that some citizens cannot grasp the concept of “freedom of speech” especially when it concerns the press, who are the ﬁrst line of defence against tyranny. Alan Halliday Richmond
data, these are concerns that need attention. Consumers have little place to turn to if their smart meter installation goes sour. They can complain to Corix—BC Hydro’s contractor—and BC Hydro itself. But consumers should have a convenient third party to turn to—one with regulator powers. If that’s the B.C. Utilities
Commission—which is the regulator of BC Hydro—it needs to make itself, and its processes, known to average British Columbians. Perhaps a board could be established to deal with complaints as they arise, thus offering some level of consumer confidence in this process. Taxpayers deserve that much from a Crown corporation.
New Order of B.C. appointments ill-timed Editor: It is no wonder that the selection of former premier Gordon Campbell, Ken Dobell and David Emerson for the Order of British Columbia has caused such a controversy. The Order of B.C. is a great honour. Any kind of politicization of this honour adversely impacts its signiﬁcance. No doubt, the three individuals mentioned above have done a lot for this province. However, some of the controversies surrounding them are still very fresh in people’s minds. Perhaps a few years down the line may have been a better timing for them. The Order of B.C. is an esteemed honour, which is bestowed on British Columbians who have made exceptional contribution to the betterment of this province. These are the people who have given so much of themselves in a selﬂess manner. Any political glow diminishes its importance. There are a lot of ordinary British Columbians and former politicians who deserve this honour. People like former premiers Dave Barrett and Mike Harcourt come to mind. Balwant Sanghera Richmond
Watch for children in school zones Editor: On behalf of the Richmond board of education, I am pleased to welcome our students and families back to what promises to be another positive and productive school year. To ensure that our children get safety to school, we thank Richmond motorists for taking special care while driving through school zones and around playgrounds. School speed zones are in effect on all school days, 8 am. to 5 p.m. with a maximum speed limit of 30 km/h. Please watch and be ready to stop for children waiting to cross the road and disembarking from vehicles. If we all do our part, our children will arrive to school safely and ready to take on the exciting challenges of school each day. Donna Sargent Chairperson Richmond Board of Education

arts & entertainment New RAG show opens Thursday A new exhibition by artist Landon Mackenzie opens this week at Richmond Art Gallery, beginning with a free, public opening reception Thursday. Crossing Over, Why Cloud the Whites is a selection of paintings by Mackenzie from the past ﬁve years that continues the thread of mapping and picture making characteristic of her art over two decades. Mackenzie is a professor of visual arts at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Drawing upon her practice of engaging optical and abstract structures with unusual pictorial elements, the Vancouver artist’s works explore the relationship between the innovative process of painting and the political and imaginative subtexts. Opening reception is Sept. 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. The show runs to Oct. 30. An artist talk is scheduled for Sept. 17 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the gallery. Mackenzie returns Oct. 20 with Glen Lowry for a discussion entitled “Crossing Over: Painting a Critical Conversation,” from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is free to both events; all are welcome. The gallery, at 7700 Minoru Gate, is open weekdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

When Brandon Tse thinks of Terry Fox, heâ€™s overwhelmed by a feeling of optimism. â€œIf it wasnâ€™t for him hundreds of thousands of people would have died. He gives everyone who is or was battling cancer hope and inspiration,â€? says Tse, a Grade 9 Incentive student at Hugh Boyd Secondary. â€œTo have suffered from cancer and have your leg amputated, then to run across Canada on one leg was amazing. He didnâ€™t feel sorry for himself, he made a difference. Thatâ€™s what inspires me.â€? Dedicated to raising funds for cancer research through the annual Terry Fox Run, Tse has already raised close to half of the $600 he hopes to collect this year. He raised $589 in ďŹ ve days after dinner and homework last year. â€œI wish I could raise more but I donâ€™t have enough time,â€? he says disappointed. This is Tseâ€™s fourth year participating in the Terry Fox Run at Garry Point where heâ€™ll also be volunteering and running 10 kilometres. â€œI have a friend who is battling cancer and I canâ€™t imagine how it must feel to have someone they love taken away because of cancer,â€? he says. When he was nine Tse accompanied members of his church to the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver to hand out food to the homeless. â€œEveryone makes mistakes in life or has taken the wrong path. I want there to be place where people can go for help and feel safe,â€? he says. â€œI want them to know they are not alone, people care about them and God does.â€? Inheriting his unselfishness from his mom, who despite suffering from chronic depression still ďŹ nds the time and energy to help out the homeless, Tse hopes to travel to South Africa in a few years to help orphans in the small village of ReďŹ lwe. Knowing that every day there are people in developing countries without a home, or even basic access to water, frustrates him.
â€œSome people I know who have visited the orphanages say that when they see the children all they want is to be loved,â€? he says.

by Don Fennell Sports Editor Hugh Boyd Trojans lost their opening game of the 2011 B.C. high school senior football season last Friday night, 21-7 to the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers of Surrey. But it wasn’t for a lack of effort. “If we play like that against most opponents in our league we’ll be ﬁne,” said Trojans’ coach Bill Haddow. “But because of our lack of depth we ended up asking some kids to do more than we should be asking them to do.” The final score was in doubt until the Panthers picked off an errant Tiernan Docherty pass for a touchdown with under two minutes to play. The lone Trojan major was a pass-and-run by Matt Adams, who was being used as a receiver. He is also the team’s starting tailback. Hugh Boyd, a AA team, will play its second AAA opponent in less than a week this Friday in Rutland. But it’s unlikely they’ll face a tougher opponent than Tweedsmuir.

The temperature was 33 Celcius, but the players said it felt a lot hotter. Regardless, the Richmond Rugby Club—with many players suiting up for both games—split their season opener Saturday in Kelowna narrowly losing a First Division match 31-28 before rebounding for a 41-5 Second Division win. Richmond showed great form early in the First Division game with solid defence and some good hard running by the backs producing three scores. Nick Pimentel scored two tries and Ryan Shams added a penalty kick to help stake Richmond to an early lead. John Findlay added a second-half try to put the locals up 23-10, but that’s when the wheels seemed to fall off the bus. It didn’t help that the locals lost both Doug Embury and Spencer Bains to injuries and or heat exhaustion. A late Geoff Girling score made the ﬁnal result interesting, but Richmond failed to convert a penalty kick from 20 metres that would
have produced a tie. Despite only seven “fresh” players for the Second Division match, Richmond was able to get points from Girling, Tim Ross, Joe Vernier, Matt
Wong-Rose, Lance Davison and Mike Marquardt to defeat Kelowna. Wong-Rose earned man-of-the-match honours in both games. Richmond is playing at Langley this weekend.

Saturdayâ€™s Hockey Day in Richmond by Don Fennell Sports Editor Richmond Minor Hockey Association is hosting its own version of Hockey Night in Canada this Saturday. OfďŹ cially itâ€™s Hockey Day at Richmond Minor from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Richmond Ice Centre. There will be many family-oriented activities including a bouncy castle for the tots, an appearance by Vancouver Canucks mascot Fin and an autograph session with former Canuck Cliff Ronning. â€œHockey Day at Richmond Minor is an exciting way to open what is sure to be one of the best seasons ever,â€? said association president Gary Lok. â€œResponse to the event from our membership has been nothing short of amazing. We at Richmond
Minor Hockey look forward to making this an annual event that can showcase our organizationâ€™s great players as well as our volunteers to the community.â€? Itâ€™s also a chance for the public to check out what Richmond Minor has to offer, said event organizer Kirk Darbyshire. Darbyshire is also hoping CBC sends out a camera crew, since the activities are registered as part of CBCâ€™s Sports Day in Canada on Saturday. The showcase event of the day is a game between the coaches and the Midget A1 team. Mayor Malcolm Brodie will oversee the ceremonial faceoff at 2:45 p.m., following a day of three-on-three action in various divisions in a parking lot challenge. Register to play in the tournament at www. richmondminorhockey.com.

“SAMMY,” 234228, NM, 3 YRS (?), DSH I’m a young guy, about three years old, but I still act like a kitten. I’m a chatty boy who was picked up as a stray, so it would be best for me if I stay inside. I may be a good candidate for harness training so I can go outside, too! I like getting affection, but I also like some alone time so respectful children are recommended. Come visit me at the Richmond SPCA!

pon stepping into Jim and Marcia Ratsoyâ€™s backyard, guests were transported to a different world for the seventh annual Rosewood Manor Garden Party Extravaganza last Sunday.
Around Town Amanda Oye
Flapper girls in red dresses and gold headbands strolled around the large lot, walking through a maze of classic cars, selling 50/50 and other prize tickets. The â€™20s themed event, put on by the Rosewood Manor Care Foundation in partnership with the Richmond Community Foundation, raised $242,465 to help fund the various initiatives Rosewood Manor has undertaken to improve their facilities and the quality of care they offer their seniors. â€œIâ€™m very happy,â€? said Deborah Goegan, the administrator at Rosewood Manor and member of the organizing committee for the event. There were 470 guestsâ€”the most the event has had in its seven years. â€œYou really get a sense of them helping us out,â€? said Goegan. Throughout the evening there was dancing, 20â€™s music, a live auction and a buffet dinner. â€œIt was really successfulâ€Ś People had fun, the meal was great, the auction was a lot of fun,â€? Goegan said. â€œI just really appreciate the community coming together for us and to help our seniors, itâ€™s great,â€? she said. Amanda Oye covers the social scene for The Review.
