Construction manager bid news to councillor All in the family Page 24

City staff move ahead with major projects unbeknownst to Greg HalseyBrandt

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter City council was not told of a move to hire a private firm to deliver $150 million worth of city projects, said Coun. Greg Halsey-Brandt Thursday. On Oct. 21, city staff issued a request for expressions of inter-

est for a construction manager to quarterback a trio of capital projects—aquatics centre, seniors activity centre and fire hall—along with millions of dollars worth of other projects “under consideration” over the next three to five years. The former mayor, who is not running for re-election

next month, said there’s “no reason in the world” why council couldn’t have been informed. “I would have thought, at the very least, maybe a week before this thing had gone out, they would have had a report go out to (committee), even if it was for infor-

mation,” said Halsey-Brandt, noting he doesn’t know what other projects are being considered by staff. He said hiring a construction manager worked well for the oval, but before hiring one for other projects, plans and financing need to be in place. See Page 3

Historic house faces uncertain future Critic calling on city to take a whole new approach in caring for Steveston’s historic buildings by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Hope of saving a historic house in Steveston is fading for at least one longtime resident, who charged the city isn’t doing enough to care for heritage. The 106-year-old Branscombe House, at 4900 Steveston Hwy., is one of the earliest homes built in Steveston and has long been owned by the city. Fourth-generation Steveston resident Bob Ransford called it a “great gateway to Steveston.” “It’s one of the very few remaining structures that have heritage value in Richmond,” he said. “They’ve pumped literally millions of dollars into different projects in Steveston, none of which have been co-ordinated, none of which have been properly planned, none of which have been part of an overall strategy, none of which have been marketed together.” Ransford, who previously volunteered on the Richmond Heritage Commission, said his first meeting as a member of the group was at the house 16 years ago. On the agenda: how to save it. Today, it’s boarded up and lies in disrepair. According to the city’s heritage inventory, the Branscombe House is one of the earliest homes built in Steveston. The document, completed in 2000, noted the house was in “fair condition” and in need of paint and maintenance. Ransford believes the city needs to start thinking differently about heritage. He’s calling for a corporation to manage all publicly owned assets in Steveston—including federal lands whose use has declined with the fishing industry. City hall recently established the Steveston Village and Cannery Row Heritage Area, which combines existing heritage plans and policies with a goal of better marketing the area. But Ransford said that doesn’t go far enough. “The city should set it up the same way as they set up the oval, as a separate corporation with directors who have the ability to do what they need to do to raise revenue and pay expenses,” he said. “The assets are owned by taxpayers and those assets should be used to their highest and best use for what they’re

intended.” He said numerous city failures in Steveston illustrate the need for such a non-profit organization, from the long-lasting tram saga and an “absolutely useless” dock at Garry Point, to underutilized assets at Britannia Heritage Shipyard and disjointed pay parking schemes. Granville Island, he said, has successfully managed to pull its industrial, arts and culture and commercial elements together. “They market them together,” said Ransford, a member of the Granville Island Trust advisory body. “There’s nothing like that in Steveston. This council simply writes cheques all the time when they’re pressed to do it, if it happens to come up on their radar screen, with no plan at all.” Ransford said the city’s best chance of saving Branscombe House came several years ago from developer Dana Westermark who proposed to restore the house and add a small building to house two affordable housing units and office space. He secured a federal grant, but the proposal didn’t clear city hall before the grant deadline

Halsey-Brandt says projects not finalized From Page 1 He said the pool, seniors centre and fire department headquarters have long been a part of capital budget discussions, but no plan or strategy on how they’ll be built has been presented to council. He’s been told concepts are coming in the early new year, but council hasn’t yet discussed what forms the buildings will take. Various ideas have been floated in recent years: expand the seniors centre, completely rebuild it, radically redesign it to include seniors housing or include the pool in the new building’s footprint. Halsey-Brandt said council has yet to discuss what to do with the

recently-vacated RCMP and get feedback from headquarters building the decision-makers (we on Minoru Boulevard. have) a fait accompli at “I think we should have the end. Obviously couna discussion around cil has over the years those initiatives first of increasingly backed off from getting involved in all before we get to this that sort of stuff and let stage of the game.” Earlier this month staff get on with the way Halsey-Brandt criticized GREG HALSEY- they think it should be BRANDT city hall for becoming done, and we’ll be con“too corporate.” The sulted when the approlongtime politician, who didn’t priate time will come.” serve on council from 2001 to Halsey-Brandt doesn’t believe 2008, said he doesn’t know that’s how the city should be what’s led to what he calls a run. “separation” of staff and elected “We’re elected to set their priofficials. orities and get involved in the “Instead of us all working to- financing and how we’re going gether to get where we’re go- to raise the money and involving and bring everybody along ing citizens’ groups—whoever is

going to use these facilities—in formulating what the concept is going to look like.” Mayor Malcolm Brodie was unavailable for comment yesterday. In June, dozens of seniors packed city council chambers to push elected officials to expand Minoru Place Activity Centre instead of offering more “empty promises.” “We identified the need for more space more than 10 years ago and we feel we’ve been getting the runaround ever since,” said Bill Sorenson, treasurer of Minoru Seniors Society, at the time. “We feel we’ve been complacent long enough.”

said Westermark. The house is expensive to restore and needs a private partner—and use, said Westermark, who isn’t interested in trying again. He believes it won’t be long before the house is demolished. “I don’t see it lasting for a tremendously long time,” he said. “I think it’s an unfortunate situation. I’d like to see the building get restored. I’m sure there’s a creative use it can get put to.” Laurie Wozny, chair of the Richmond Heritage Commission, said any old building is worth saving, but a tenant is needed. City spokesperson Ted Townsend said the house is “currently secured awaiting restoration.” He said the city’s heritage department has requested funding, which will be considered as part of the annual capital plan process. But it will be up to city council to decide whether to spend the money. Said Townsend: “Once funding for restoration has been secured, we would begin work on developing a plan for its future use.”

City serves up fireworks As locals gear up for the most frightful night of the year, the city is serving up a reminder that it will take a zero-tolerance approach to unlicensed pyrotechnic displays, especially during Halloween. Under the city’s fireworks bylaw, buying, selling, distributing or displaying fireworks comes with a $1,000 fine, while possession without a permit will set you back $250. The city is urging residents to leave the fireworks to the professionals. Locals won’t have far to go to enjoy the crackle, whiz and bang of fireworks this Monday night. There will be displays all over the city: • Minoru Park: the free annual display will include a live DJ, magician, costumed performers and fire jugglers, starting at 6:30 p.m. • South Arm Community Centre will offer a display at 7:45 p.m.; West Richmond Community Centre at 8 p.m.; and Hamilton (McLean Park) at 8:15 p.m. Anyone who sees an illegal display is encouraged to call 911 immediately. And businesses and residents of condos and townhouses can do their part to discourage arson by locking up garbage dumpsters on Monday. —by Martin van den Hemel

Man gets 30 days in jail for child porn downloads Markku Juhani Sillanpaa had turned himself in to police A Richmond man has been sentenced to 30 days in prison and a three-year term of probation after turning himself into police earlier this year. Markku Juhani Sillanpaa, 63, walked up to the front counter of the RCMP detachment on April 30, and spontaneously disclosed that he downloads child pornography. He then handed over a memory card to police, stating that it contained child porn. An RCMP investigator viewed the

contents of the memory card and determined that the images were pornographic, and then arrested Sillanpaa. Sillanpaa appeared in Richmond provincial court on Monday, where he was sentenced after pleading guilty. In addition to the jail time and probation, he was also ordered to submit a sample of his DNA—the genetic blueprint of life—for a national registry.

Woman charged with concealing child’s body didn’t realize she was pregnant ‘None of us knew,’ says family member by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

A Richmond family is coping with a tragic outcome, after a 24-year-old girl who was planning to get married, didn’t realize she was pregnant and delivered a nonfull-term baby over the summer. Randy Pullman told The Richmond Review Wednesday that his daughter Carly had been dating the same boy for

six years, and they were planning to get married, when tragedy struck on Aug. 15. “It’s not as far fetched as people might think,” he said. “None of us knew (she was pregnant).” Carly Pullman has been charged with concealing the body of a child, and interfering with a dead body. She’s also been

charged with obstructing a police officer. Richmond RCMP are not disclosing any information about the case. But Randy Pullman described his family as a “normal family” with no drug or financial issues. He said the police investigation is centring on how his daughter handled the baby’s death. He said his daughter was “nowhere close” to full term. Asked how Carly is doing, Randy Pullman said “she’s coping. Most of it was shock that she even was pregnant.” His daughter, whom he described as being “naive,” at one point thought she was battling the flu, and the furthest thing from her mind was that she was pregnant. Carly Pullman is next scheduled to appear in Richmond provincial court on April 3, 2012 for a pre-trial conference. A trial confirmation date has been scheduled for Oct. 16, 2012, with a four-day trial scheduled to begin Dec. 17, 2012.

River Rock doubles its room total with ‘boutique’ hotel The Hotel is meant to be uncomplicated Staff Reporter It boasts 193 of some of the most modern hotel rooms in the city—and they’re all located in the sky. The Hotel, the latest offering from River Rock Casino Resort, quietly opened earlier this month. Built above a parkade shared by Canada Line commuters and casino patrons, the $24-million boutique hotel nearly doubles the resort’s total rooms to 395. The new rooms are located on floors eight through 12, average 400 square feet and connect to the resort’s main building via an overhead walkway. Rooms are slightly smaller than the suites across the street and cater to business travellers. “It gives you all the flash, excitement and everything you’ve come to know on the other side, but also the serenity, privacy, business atmosphere that you may not think you have here,” said Howard Blank, spokesperson for Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, which owns

and operates the resort. Completed in less than one year, the four-diamond, five-storey hotel gives guests access to all amenities of the resort, which opened in 2005. The new hotel will soon have some of its own offerings: retail space is ready to be filled and an 8,000-square-foot restaurant is expected to open on the ground floor early next year. “(Guests) want the amenities that are on site, but they don’t necessarily want to be in the hotel where all the action is. So this is

giving us an opportunity to reach out to groups that before wouldn’t have stayed in our property,” said Blank. The hotel is meant to be uncomplicated. From its name, to its minimalist lobby experience for frequent travellers. Room keycards can be personalized and programmed to accommodate a guest’s preferred room settings, from lighting to temperature—and kept by guests who wish to bypass front desk check in. See Page 7

Demand for hotels in Richmond continues to grow at rapid rate From Page 5 And getting to a room from the airport can be done without ever being exposed to a drop of West Coast rain. The hotel connects directly to the Bridgeport Station of the Canada Line. The new property adds to Richmond’s fast-growing inventory of hotels, which now stands at 27. Last year the Westin Wall Centre Vancouver Hotel opened with 180 rooms spread over 15 oors on Corvette Way in North Richmond. Other hotels are in various planning stages. This summer city council gave approval to Home Run Developments Ltd. to turn a vacant lot at 8540 Alexandra Rd. into a 101-room hotel. Dynasty Hotels Inc. has long planned a 191-room hotel at 8451 Bridgeport Rd. and Vancouver International Airport Authority has preliminary plans to build a 250room hotel along with a business park on Sea Island. Tracy Lakeman, executive director of Tourism Richmond, said hotel growth in Richmond over last 15 years—not including River Rock’s latest hotel—is 123 per cent. That’s an average annual growth rate of 5.5 per cent. “It’s a substantial industry for Richmond and a lot of that is driven because of the airport,â€? said Lakeman. “We are positioned to

continue to grow and when you see the investment that the private sector is putting into this industry, it’s hard to ignore it.� Also helping boost demand is more aggressive marketing from Tourism Richmond and the fact Richmond is becoming recognized around the world. Each year, Richmond sees 4.4 million visitor nights—and over half are staying in local hotels. “Our message is that we have a

community that works together to make the business successful, and we have the infrastructure in place for a visitor.� Steveston, the Golden Village, brand name hotels, and proximity to the airport, Vancouver and Victoria are all drawing visitors here. And they’re spending money. Each year, visitors spend more than $250 million in the community— not including what they spend on accommodation, Lakeman said.

alloween isn’t the only reason why you may have heard more evening fireworks in your neighbourhood. Diwali, known as the Festival of Lights, is a significant time on the Hindu and Sikh calendars. And in communities with a heavy Indo-Canadian flavour, such as Richmond, Surrey and Delta, it’s commonplace to hear the crack of exploding fireworks once the sun sets. With Halloween around the corner, pyrotechnic displays figure only to pick until all hallow’s eve on Monday. The blame for illegal fireworks is often mistakenly directed almost exclusively at teens and young adults. But if you look close enough for the source of the behaviour, don’t be surprised to encounter an adult is active behind the scenes and encouraging it. Yes, we were all once

young, and some would argue it is almost a rite of passage to sneak off and light firecrackers. But adults, perhaps seeking to appear hip to their children, or who simply haven’t outgrown their youth, are sending the wrong message by telling children to play with fireworks. As was poignantly pointed out by one young man on the radio this week, fireworks are a type of explosive, which cost him multiple fingertips years ago, and many months of physiotherapy. He’s hoping that by sharing his story, another youth might be spared the same fate. Aside from losing digits, fireworks can touch off fires that destroy homes and cause other types of property damage. So if you see your next door neighbour setting of fireworks, do the right thing and call 911. Turning a blind eye is not being a part of the solution. There’s nothing quite like seeing a police

So while I began thinking of my own mortality, I figured I owed someone in my family a special message. I need to tell my Dad that he was right. If you know me, this is a pretty huge admission. At home, Dad and I are sparring partners on different issues. We have an under-

standing that although we love each other, I don’t necessarily have to agree with him. Sounds pretty straightforward but in the Indo-Canadian community, that’s pretty monumental between father and daughter. When Dad first came to Canada, he drove a forklift and even when he rose to the position of vice-president in his company, you’d always see him in the warehouse, either behind a pallet jack or still driving the forklift. He certainly showed my brother and I that physical work was nothing to be ashamed of. Although our family struggled early on as new immigrants in Canada, Dad earned a very comfortable wage later in life. And even when he could afford it, Dad rarely spent money on himself, especially on clothes. In fact, he often wore my brother’s hand-me-down suits and shirts that were decades old. When I was in my

teens and early 20s, this was the source of much embarrassment. But in reality, Dad was the model eco-friendly guy, recycling clothes, and refusing to get rid of something just because it was unfashionable. When I returned to Canada from working overseas in Thailand and India, I was horrified to see my parents drinking tap water. I’d spent years drinking either filtered or bottled water, for my own health and safety, and it had obviously stuck with me. Dad obligingly stocked the fridge with a couple of bottles of water, but I recall him shaking his head about “paying for water.” I thankfully kicked the bottled water habit, realizing that we live in a region with the best tap water on the planet. Other than the initial house that Dad purchased for our family in 1973, my dad never bought anything

on credit. He was very risk averse. In the ’90s my brother and I would always complain that he left his savings in GICs where they were earning so little. Why not invest in the stock market and double his returns? Well, you can guess who’s laughing now. I just opened my RRSP statement. Wish I hadn’t. When my grandfather could no longer drive, the family began discussing how to get him to jamat khane every evening, where he could pray and socialize. Should we try Handy Dart? Have a standing order for a cab? Dad put his foot down that there would be no outsourcing! It was his filial duty to take care of his own father so he, my aunt and uncle, took turns driving him where he needed to go. Dad and I would often argue about all of this, but he was always steadfast: family comes first; save your money; and never keep a balance

letters Ban bottled water at city functions Editor: Thank you, Carlie Holland from Steveston, for your excellent letter to the editor “Bottled water woes at the firehall opening” in the Oct. 5 edition of The Richmond Review. You note that while a water station had been set up for visitors to access water from a water fountain or tap, officials were provided with bottled water for their use during the formal part of the opening which only lasted 20 minutes. I agree with you that if the city is promoting use of tap water over bottled water, it should be used by the very people

who are encouraging the rest of us to change our behaviour. As a community, I think we should go one step further. Let’s ban bottled water entirely at all city functions. The organizers of the Steveston Salmon Festival are working toward this goal and took a big step forward at the last July 1 event by introducing water stations. I also see that at least one candidate for city council, Derek Dang, shows support for this goal in his candidacy statement. As I understand it, Burnaby city council has passed a reso-

lution to ban bottled water at public events and perhaps in public buildings. With the growing awareness of treating water as a precious commodity and taking personal responsibility for reducing unnecessary packaging in our lives, I believe residents in Richmond can rise to the challenge. Let’s build on the momentum and take a significant step toward the reduction of needless packaging by supporting the safe use of tap water for drinking. Dianne Milsom Steveston

letters Teachers’ job action impacts students Editor: In September when I returned to my secondary school, I didn’t expect the job action to affect our learning or to go very far. But just a few days ago when we were supposed to get our interim reports, they were cancelled, because apparently teachers are not allowed to use them. I find that extremely ridiculous not to mention that some clubs at school that help with our volunteer hours are unable to run because there are no teachers

to supervise them. Meanwhile, teachers out there are complaining about their pay and at the same time saying things like “we care about your learning and education,” which are contrary to what they’re doing. Everything that contributes to our education is being ignored and they say they care about us. Really? Going on strike and jeopardizing the students is not necessary in order to reach an agreement with the government.

Richmond’s firehalls built at a snail’s pace Editor: Re: “‘Aggressive’ building program underway to replace aging downtown facilities,” Richmond Review, Oct. 26. I hope that in city hall’s wisdom to find a construction manager for various projects that they will get what they pay for. Having witnessed how painfully long it took to build or renovate the last three firehalls, one can only hope that the next round of projects will not take until the next century to complete. Just look at the many private highrise, townhouse or other major projects in B.C. and they are completed much faster than the the Richmond firehalls. Trim the fat, trim the waste and manage these future projects like the money is comming from your own pocket. There is no use in Richmond Fire-Rescue having a wish list of trucks, wages or personel if we can’t provide a firehall for them that is on time, on budget and within today’s fiscal restraints.

Halloween-themed homes collecting for food bank, SPCA by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

F

or years, Richmond’s Jennifer Pavlovic has been decorating her home at 11731 No. 2 Rd., but this year she’s promising the biggest and baddest fright yet.

Keep an eye out for pets From Page 12 The BCSPCA has put safety tips and other pet care information on their website at www. spca.bc.ca under “Halloween Frights.” Richmond SPCA’s Top 4 Halloween Tips: 1. Keep all pets, even ‘outdoor’ animals inside Halloween night. 2. Do not feed pets chocolate – it’s poison to them. Candy can also be problematic leading to health problems such as diabetes and obesity. 3. Do not dress your dogs in costumes. As tempting as it is to make your pet even more adorable, this inhibits his ability to communicate to other dogs and be dangerous for him. 4. Loud noises cause panic in some animals. It may seem counterintuitive but be careful not to react in a consoling manner to your pets when there are loud noises. Try an upbeat voice and distracting with a favourite toy or treat.

“I have spent a lot of time upgrading and perfecting it for this year,” she said. “This year I will be doing my garage, my front door, under my window, the yard and the roof... there is something here for everybody to enjoy.” Pavlovic’s home is just south of the new Steveston Fire Hall, and she’ll be collecting food and dona-

tions for the Richmond Food Bank Society. The display will be available for locals to enjoy on Sunday, Oct. 30, and Monday, Oct. 31, from 5 to 11 p.m. Pavlovic isn’t the only local getting into the ghastly spirit of the season. Tammy Midttun and her family are decorating their townhouse, which for the Halloween season has

been renamed Dr. Lupin Strange’s Lab of Terror. Located at 74-12551 Cambie Rd., Midttun’s home’s is located just across the street from the East Cambie Community Centre. They’ll be collecting donations for the Richmond Food Bank and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. “Bring your family,

friends and neighbours. We are always looking for new victims.” Richmond’s Brad Naples absolutely loves this time of year, according to his mother Jackie Woodrow. The 12-year-old spends a good month

prior to Halloween arranging a display at his townhouse which includes a carport turned into a haunted house, and where neighbourhood kids help provide the screams. “He’s been doing

Two months into a work-to-rule campaign by B.C.’s public school teachers, the bargaining agent for school districts is seeking an order forcing teachers to provide report cards. Education Minister George Abbott declined to comment on an application by the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association to cut teacher pay by up to 15 per cent if they don’t produce report cards and perform other duties. But he agrees that reporting on student progress should be an essential service. “Report cards and reporting generally are hugely important to us,” Abbott said. “It is not acceptable to me, nor to the ministry of education, to have children and parents in British Columbia not understanding how they are progressing.” The ministry has directed principals and vice principals to send out report cards, but Abbott acknowledged that without teacher input, they may contain little more than an attendance report. The employers’ association applied to the

B.C. Labour Relations Board Wednesday for a declaration on report cards and the option of reduced pay for reduced work. A decision could take two weeks. The last contract with B.C.’s 41,000 public school teachers expired in June. In addition to wage and benefit increases, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation wants restoration of class size and special needs support rules, after a court ruling gave the government a year to consult with teachers on appropriate levels. Abbott also presented legislation Wednesday to dissolve the B.C. College of Teachers, reducing the BCTF’s power to protect and reinstate teachers facing discipline for misconduct. Last year former deputy minister Don Avison reported on the function of college discipline and found that the BCTF-dominated discipline committee “appeared to minimize the severity” of offences. BCTF president Susan Lambert has disputed his findings. The legislation creates a new B.C. Teachers’ Council with a commissioner to oversee complaints. Discipline panels would no longer have a majority of BCTF appointees.

community ‘First Breath’ a whale of a thank you by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter After 14 years in business, a local firm wants to express its thanks to Steveston with a special dedication that will be unveiled under the TV spotlight early Friday afternoon. Vancouver Whale Watch has commissioned a wood carving of a mother orca lifting her newborn baby to the surface for its first breath. Carved from an 800-year-old California redwood that tips the scales at about 3,000 pounds, the sculpture has been named First Breath and took three carvers more than 24 hours over the course of three days to complete. The unveiling and dedication of the piece will take place at 1 p.m. Friday, on the boardwalk at the end of Third Avenue. “We are donating the sculpture to the village of Steveston to thank them for their support over the last 14 years,” said Vancouver Whale Watch general manager Pamela Thurston. “Many thanks to the Steveston Harbour Authority for donating a space for the sculpture.” The Richmond community is invited out for the unveiling, she said. Film crews from the reality TV show Saw Dogs, which airs on Outdoor Life Network, will be on site for the unveiling.

Thieves stole transit tickets destined for the shredder Men charged with pilfering FareSavers from their workplace by Jeff Nagel Black Press Two men face charges of stealing and trying to sell a huge number of TransLink FareSaver tickets that were slated to be shredded. Patrick Robert Parry, 46, of Surrey, and James Gordon Hemenway, 40, of Vancouver are alleged to have stolen about 80,000 of the prepaid transit tickets worth $153,000 that had been taken to the Richmond shredding firm where they worked, Transit Police said. They face theft and fraud charges and appear in Vancouver court in December. FareSavers come in books of 10 tickets and the ones missing were to be destroyed in the spring of 2010 because TransLink had just

raised transit fares. “They were selling them on the streets,” said Transit Police Insp. Brian MacDonald, the force’s acting deputy chief of operations. “We’re alleging the two employees of the company stole the FareSavers before they went into the shredder.” He estimated the two accused men stole “a couple of pallets” of FareSavers. Neither he nor TransLink would say how many tickets had originally been sent for shredding or whether a larger number may have gone missing. TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said the transportation authority will reconsider how it shreds tickets and other sensitive material. Some other agencies bring in a shredder to work on site rather than sending material out, he said. “It’s one of the things our risk management people will be looking at,” Hardie said. “If they are not satisfied that the current process is adequate, they’ll work up options.” MacDonald said possession or

Two men are alleged to have stolen about 80,000 prepaid transit tickets that had been taken to the Richmond shredding firm where they worked.

dealing stolen FareSavers is an offence and passengers should only buy tickets from licensed dealers. Urban Impact Recycling founder and CEO Nicole Stefenelli said the two accused men were warehouse equipment operators at Urban’s Richmond plant, adding they are no longer with the firm. “This was a shock to us all,” she said. “Employee theft is a serious issue. In this case, it has a profound impact on myself and the company.”

When it comes to higher learning, the study of sewage may not be the ďŹ rst academic pursuit that springs to mind. But Metro Vancouver is betting its new $9-million Annacis Wastewater Centre will offer a tempting real-life lab for scientists and engineers while yielding long-term beneďŹ ts. It ofďŹ cially opened Oct. 21 at Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest sewage treatment plant on Annacis Island. And Metro ofďŹ cials say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the ďŹ rst in a series of planned sustainability academies where the regional district plans to partner with university researchers and private ďŹ rms to ďŹ nd leading-edge solutions to regional problems. Board chair Lois Jackson said the region wants to stop treating sewage simply as a waste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sewage is a source of renewable energy and vital nutrients and the work that will take place in the academy will allow us to ďŹ nd novel and innovative ways to extract these important resources,â&#x20AC;? she said. No researchers have moved in so far. But the ďŹ rst to arrive will be a UBC team exploring how to best reclaim phosphorous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an increasingly scarce commodity needed for fertilizer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from sewage. The Annacis academy is to examine new ways to capture heat from hot water that goes down the sewers and the potential reuse of reclaimed grey water for purposes like irrigation or toilet ďŹ&#x201A;ushing. Another research area is the capture of biogas from local treatment plants to feed into the natural gas grid or generate electricity. The federal and provincial governments each contributed $3 million and UBC kicked in $500,000, so Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s net capital cost was $2.5 million. UBC civil engineering professor Don Mavinic said the academy is a welcome addition that will allow researchers to test and demonstrate new green technologies. Planners at Metro hope fees paid by researchers and other consultants to use the centre will cover annual operating costs. They also predict the capital investment will more than pay for itself by helping the region generate more revenue from resource recovery and rein in the cost of future sewage treatment plants â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two plant replacements are on the drawing board at an estimated cost of $1.4 billion.

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It’s been an extremely popular destination for Richmond residents who have cashed in on the recent hot real estate market and wanted to invest in a high-quality new home. Tsawwassen Springs is a 500-unit master-planned residential development 15 minutes south of Lulu Island that sits alongside a par 70 18-hole golf course on 140 acres in Tsawwassen. Developer Ron Toigo said among the biggest buyers into the project have been former Richmond homeowners, second only to those who live in the surrounding neighbourhood. See Page 19

business Tsawwassen Springs From Page 18 The prospect of still living fairly close to their friends, a five-minute walk to the beach, and a short stroll to Tsawwassen centre has made it a popular draw, he said. The first phase of the development, including 200 single family homes and condos, sold out in a matter of months, and sales have now been launched on the second phase, a sixstorey concrete building that will become the tallest property in Tsawwassen. With an amenity house featuring a sauna, spa and weight room, a near-

by 32,000-square-foot clubhouse, and plans for a grocery store, cafe, restaurant and pub, homeowners will have all their needs at their doorstep. Many of the units— which range in price from $369,000 for a 750-squarefoot unit to $848,000 for a spacious 1,600-squarefoot two bedroom—will boast breathtaking views of the Gulf Islands. A system of inter-connected trails stretch from the beach to other parts of Delta. Toigo said the community has been designed with the long-term in mind. With sloped roofs and generous overhangs, concrete construction, rainscreen technology, and hardiplank siding

that looks like wood and is made from cement, Toigo said a lot of time and money were invested to ensure the condo project’s quality was second to none. As stunning as the artsand-crafts influenced project looks from the outside,

what’s hidden from view is just as important, he said. All homes in the project are heated and cooled via a geothermal exchange system, translating into heating bills ranging from about $25 to $35

per month. And Toigo said despite the plentiful amenities, planning around lowmaintenance designs has helped keep the strata fees as low as possible, at just 26 cents per square foot. That translates into

$260 per month for a 1,000-square-foot unit. There’s no point, Toigo said, in paying $1,000 per month in maintenance fees, then you might as well have another mortgage. Toigo said what Tsaw-

hanks to reader Harry Critchley, I discovered St. Jean’s Cannery & Smokehouse. Located near the “old airport” (as locals know it) or South Terminal (as the signs say), it’s a block or so from the

In 1961 Armand St. Jean smoked oysters and canned clam chowder in the back of his Nanaimo garage. See Page 21

From Page 20 He impressed some American sport fishermen who suggested he can salmon. The idea made sense to St. Jean, who then fixed up an old boathouse and set to work. So began St. Jean’s commitment to the sport fishing industry. Over these past 50 years, the company expanded: son Gerard joined the business, new buildings were constructed, and other products introduced. However, St. Jean’s remained committed to sport fishermen. The company serves more than 70 fishing camps in B.C. and has more than a dozen pickup depots. Besides the Nanaimo location, they are in Port Alberni and Campbell River. The Richmond retail store opened in 1999 to serve as a drop-off for fishermen. They guarantee that the fish you eat is your own. “We tag and label from start to finish—just like shirts in a laundry.” Their own fish and seafood products are harvested from the coastal waters using sustainable fishing practices. The oysters are from Fanny Bay on Vancouver Island; the clams from Johnston Straight. Mike has been with the Richmond store

for four years and tells me the story of a woman who returned canned clams. “They’re not real clams,” she’d claimed. The reason? They are harvested when they are 2 1/2 inches and are the complete clam. People, Mike says, are used to farmed clams. St. Jean’s salmon is fresh when canned, using no preservatives or additives. The canned fish has a five-to-10-year shelf life.

The smoked pink or sockeye salmon also comes in a gold pouch, perfect for travel or hiking. St. Jean’s ships door-todoor around the world. They’ll even turn the salmon you bought at the wharf or the market into lox, candied salmon, smoked, canned, or smoked canned. After my visit to the shop around the corner in Richmond, I slit open the package of frozen

candied salmon and let it defrost in the fridge overnight. For dinner, I opened the Manhattan clam chowder, added light cream, heated, and enjoyed. Thanks again Harry. I’ve found my new favourite place. •St. Jean’s Cannery: 4840 Cowley Cres. 604270-3384, stjeans.com. Open: Monday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; closed Sundays. Recipes, p. 22

Signature Dish Dine Out Festival breaks ground by encouraging local Chinese chefs to create innovative dishes with fresh, local ingredients, while the public take part in enjoying them. The festival will feature award-winning Signature Dishes previously honored by the Chinese Restaurant Awards, such as Jade Seafood Restaurant’s smoked grandpa chicken, Alvin Garden’s tea smoked duck, and Rainflower Restaurant’s lamb rack in Chinese wine sauce. Besides Canadian seafoods, the festival will also shine a spotlight on Alberta beef and Alberta pork. Many new dishes have been created especially for this festival, which includes a new variation of the traditional Chinese Dongpo Pork dish, made with Alberta pork, Amoy cooking sauces and designed by Shiang Garden’s executive chef P. Wing Leung. Diners can vote online for the Best Restaurant, Best Service, Best Dinning Environment and Most Innovative, all under the Signature Dish Dine Out Festival category in the upcoming Diner’s Choice Awards commencing this November. Eight critics from this year’s CRA judging panel will also taste the dine-out dishes from all 18 participating restaurants. For more info, see www.chineserestaurantawards.com.

Don Fennell photo As head coach and line coach of the Richmond Raiders Junior Bantam Football team respectively, Nathan Kishi (second from left) and Campbell McLeod (second from right) still look to their dads Glenn Kishi (far left) and Jim McLeod (far right) for advice. The elder Kishi and McLeod are assistant coaches with the team.

Following their dad’s footsteps Nathan Kishi and Campbell McLeod take lead coaching roles with Richmond Raiders; their dads aboard as assistants by Don Fennell Sports Editor

I

t’s funny how life is cyclical.

When Nathan Kishi and Campbell McLeod were boys, they looked to their dads for direction on the field. The boys wanted to know everything dad did about their favourite game of football. Today, the two dads are still mentors, but this time their

boys are the lead coaches. The dads—they’re assistants. “It’s kind of a group effort,” says Nathan, who is officially the head coach of the Richmond Raiders Junior Bantam team, with Campbell focusing on the defensive and offensive lines. “Convincing (our dads) to come back wasn’t that difficult,” he adds. “It’s been fun having them around, and tapping into their experience.”

It’s been equally fulfilling for the dads—Glenn Kishi and Jim McLeod, who coached the boys when they played minor football together in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Their teams enjoyed a lot of success, often winning Vancouver Mainland Football League championships and, in 2001, netted the provincial Midget Division title. See Page 25

Emma Hodgins, winner of the Steveston Scarecrow Crawl colouring contest, accepts her prize of a $50 gift certiďŹ cate to Splash Toy Shop from Kelly Krull, owner of Splash Toy Shop, and Splash employee Robyn Germain. The contest was presented by the Steveston Merchants Association, which thanked all children who submitted creative entries for the contest. According to the association, choosing the winner was a difďŹ cult decision.

Martin Dash and Carmen McCracken (Team DASH), along with Richard Laurendeau, recently presented a cheque for $2,200 in support of the Richmond Hospital Foundation. TEAM DASH supported the Richmond Hospital Foundation at the 2011 BMO Vancouver International Marathon. Martin, a veteran marathon runner, started training seriously in early 2011. The TEAM DASH goal for the 2012 Vancouver International Marathon is $10,000. Martin and Carmen welcome and appreciate pledges from real estate industry colleagues in Richmond and are conďŹ dent the 2012 target will be met and exceeded.
