Close quarters on coin-covered road Construction crew helps shovel runaway cash by Todd Coyne Contributor There was more than just rain falling on Richmond streets Thursday morning, as a large splash of cash covered No. 6 Road just north of Westminster Highway, halting traffic through the centre lanes in both directions shortly after 11 a.m. Richmond cyclist Doug Woods said he was coming up No. 6 Road at 11:20 a.m. Thursday when he came upon a large, overturned blue box sitting atop what looked like a six-foot wide pool of silver coins in the middle of the road. Woods said he wasn’t stopped for long before a Churchill Armoured Car Service truck came through the intersection towards him with its emergency lights flashing. The truck pulled up, stopped on the centre line and two armed men jumped out to assess the situation before Woods carried on his way. David Roberts of nearby Cape Construction also noticed the scene unfolding and came out to see if he and his co-workers could help. “They were all quarters,” Roberts said of the pile of spilled coins. He and his crew grabbed some shovels from inside and helped the armed guards shovel the coins back into the box on the road for what he estimated was about 20 minutes. “They had a little egg on

their face but they were happy to get it all in the truck and get out of there,” he said. “They said the door just came open when they turned the corner off of No. 6 Road off of Westminster Highway.” Keith Desnoyers, general manager of Churchill Armoured Car Service in Vancouver, said he was aware of an incident but refused to comment on it. Richmond RCMP arrived at the scene during the cleanup, rerouting traffic until all the coins were secured.

MLAs praise income tax cut Opposition’s comment ‘shows the real difference’ between parties by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter

Todd Coyne photo Rescuers respond to a simulated gas leak at the East Richmond Air Liquide plant as part of a training exercise Wednesday morning.

Emergency crews simulate disaster by Todd Coyne Contributor Tenants of an East Richmond business park Wednesday might have thought they were either caught in the midst of an industrial disaster or an early Halloween party as they looked out the windows of their offices and saw swarms of men in yellow spacesuits trudging back and forth through billowing clouds of white fog. Had they got the memo from their neighbours at Air Liquide, however, they would have known that the crowd of police, paramedics, firefighters and hazardous materials specialists descending upon the industrial gas supplier were conducting a training exercise on how to respond to a potentially catastrophic poison gas leak. Richmond firefighter Kevin Gray described the scenario. “Basically it’s a truck driver [picking up] liquid oxygen and he’s had a heart attack and he’s crashed his vehicle into a containment of toxic gases. So subsequently we have a heart attack as well as we have a toxic gas leak,” Gray said. Were it a real event instead of a simulated leak, the area including all of the surrounding buildings would have to be evacuated to as far back as a half-kilometre from the site, according to Richmond Fire-Rescue communications officer, Kirby Graeme. “Chlorine gas is so highly toxic and liquid

oxygen is very, very explosive,” Graeme said while watching the driver extraction and gas-leak containment operations in the Air Liquide parking lot on Fraserwood Way. Portable weather and air-quality monitoring stations were set up on the perimeter of the rescue and response staging area, life-saving early-warning technology, according to Graeme. “All the info goes into a computer and it does 3-D modelling which’ll give us the wind direction, toxicity...it’ll tell you what that cloud is going to do in and around the high-rises say in Richmond,” he said. And as the truck driver was carted off to an ambulance and the leaking gas safely contained, the operation was deemed a success and the neighbourhood returned to normal. Nicola Prochinsky of Air Liquide’s in-house emergency response team said that during her time at the Richmond facility, she is not aware of any real-world scenarios similar to Wednesday’s training exercise ever having occurred. “This is the first time we’ve done an exercise like this since I’ve been with Air Liquide—so the last three years—but we plan on trying to do at least a couple exercises a year involving the different branches of the emergency services so that a cross-section of their departments within Richmond can be trained and understand our facilities,” she said.

NDP leader Carole James’s response to Premier Gordon Campbell’s tax cut announcement highlights the difference between the two political parties, say Richmond’s Liberal MLAs. Campbell went on TV Wednesday night to announce a 15-per-cent cut in personal income tax to take the sting out of the harmonized sales tax. James called the cut a desperate attempt to “buy public support” that was lost over the HST. “I believe in a competitive tax environment, but this is a ridiculous way to set tax policy,” James said. “There’s no explanation about what this does to the budget, what it does to our fragile economy, what program cuts will have to be made, what fees for services will go up for individuals.” Richmond Centre MLA Rob Howard said James’s comments signify the difference between Liberal and NDP operating styles. “Ours is to cut taxes and put more money back in the pockets of British Columbians and the Opposition’s evidently is not that, and is quite different, to go to the extent to call a significant tax cut ‘ridiculous,’” he said. Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap agrees. “Quite frankly, that shows the real difference between NDP policy under Ms. James, which is to not provide tax cuts,” Yap said. He applauded Campbell’s initiative. “When you leave more money in the hands of people, they’ll be able to choose what to do with the extra take-home pay and, generally speaking, that leads to more economic activity.” Yap said Campbell’s announcement was not intended as a public distraction from the unpopular HST. “This is about making British Columbia tax competitive because when you have a tax-competitive environment you strengthen your economy.” The income tax reduction applies to the first $72,000 of income, effective Jan. 1. It is the second largest income tax cut in B.C. his-

tory, following the 25-per-cent cut Campbell made on the first day of his administration in 2001. The tax cut will save $68 a year for someone with an income of $20,000, and up to $616 a year for those with an income of $72,000 or more. Campbell said it will give B.C. the lowest provincial personal income tax in Canada, and business income taxes will also move to the lowest rates in North America. The income tax cut applies to 1.9 million people, and will reduce the government’s tax take by $568 million next year. The finance ministry estimated in September that recovering corporate income taxes would give the B.C. government an additional $2.1 billion over the next three years, on top of current program costs. Campbell started the half-hour broadcast with an explanation of the introduction of the HST and its benefits to business, such as reduced costs for a work truck. He stressed that 80 per cent of goods and services are taxed the same

“When you leave more money in the hands of people, they’ll be able to choose what to do with the extra take-home pay and, generally speaking, that leads to more economic activity.” - John Yap with the federal and provincial sales taxes combined. He reiterated his promise to accept a simple majority vote in a referendum on the HST to be held next September. Campbell also announced an expansion of StrongStart early childhood education centres from 300 to 400 over the next five years. The centres are mostly in schools and offer programs for pre-kindergarten children accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Wednesday’s televised address cost $240,000—a sum Yap said is within the province’s communications budget.

Melanie Nomm and Jennifer Day, both Richmond residents, and both in search of limited-release Christmas items. “We’ve kind of been gearing up for this for a long time,” said Nomm. She told her cousin two months ago to mark down the date. Their friend Cleo Yeh took the day off for the special occasion. All three had printed off coupons entitling them to a free tote bag with any in-store purchase on opening day. Founded in France in 1993, Sephora has expanded to 13 countries with the first Canadian store opening in Toronto in 2004. The Richmond location is the fifth in B.C. and fourth in the Lower Mainland. “We’re very happy to have Sephora here as part of the Richmond Centre family,” said mall spokesperson Leslie Matheson. “It’s a great store. I know they have stores across the world, and so we’re very excited they’ve decided to join us.” The addition of Sephora is part of Richmond Centre’s Rebirth of Retail renovation. Specialty tea store Teaopia is scheduled to open this fall, and inexpensive and trendy fashion retailer Forever 21 is slated to open in the new year.

Black Press Soaring utility costs mean a typical home will fork over $513 to Metro Vancouver next year, a jump of nine per cent that some local politicians say is simply too much. Critics of the regional district’s proposed 2011 budget zero in on the plans to jack regional spending 5.8 per cent to $603 million, adding 24 more full-time staff. Surrey Coun. Linda Hepner is voting against the budget until she gets better answers on why the region needs to hire two dozen more employees. “The taxpayer is getting squeezed from all directions and I just couldn’t do it,” Hepner said after the budget passed a preliminary vote Wednesday. “Honestly, I think we have to look at doing some of the work within existing resources.” Metro needs to concentrate more on providing core services, she said, and take a hard look at areas it has strayed beyond its mandate. “We have to make sure we’re putting our right foot forward,” said Metro board chair and Delta Mayor Lois Jackson, who also questions the increased spending and hiring. Jackson noted taxpayers are being hit not just by Metro but in some cases rising civic taxes and also a possible property tax hike from TransLink. “I am concerned about the increased cost.” While Metro directors were split on whether to approve the budget, they agree on one point: much of the escalating costs are out of their control. Tighter drinking water standards set by the federal government

Metro Vancouver 2011 cost per home •Regional taxes: $39 (up $2) •Sewage fees: $170 (up $8) •Garbage disposal: $91 (up $11) •Water rates: $213 (up $23) •TOTAL: $513 (up $44) —Based on average $600,000 home Strait of Georgia between Richmond and Vancouver is to be upgraded to secondary treatment within 20 years. North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto, one of the directors supporting the budget, defends the sewage upgrades. “We have to take better care of the planet,” he said. “We can’t be dumping untreated sewage into the inlet any more.” More than $80 million is to be spent on sewer capital projects next year, including new mains and pumping stations to handle growth of the region’s population. A good chunk of money is literally going in the garbage. Waste tipping fees are going up 18 per cent to $97 per tonne, ironically because recycling is on the upswing and less garbage is being generated. As residents and businesses re-

duce the amount of garbage they generate per capita, less money is raised from tipping fees, so the fees have to rise to cover the system’s fixed costs. Waste spending is also going up to fund new initiatives to help increase the recycling rate to a target of 70 per cent by 2015. “We’ve got to sort out the compostables, we’ve got to sort out the recyclables and that costs money,” Mussatto said. Other directors question earmarking an extra $10 million or more for expansion of the regional parks and greenways system. In some cases Metro runs parks in close proximity to some civic parks, but there’s so far been no consideration of rationalizing the two systems. Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean criticizes the proposed spending of $295,000 next year on international travel, including a water conference in Dubai. “We have the best water in the world and we’re off to Dubai to learn more?” he asked. Spending on corporate communications and media relations is slated to rise 20 per cent to $2.4 million, although MacLean notes public consultations are often unavoidable. He does question Metro’s purchase of water wagons to provide drinking water at major events and its plans to create a web-based regional arts and culture calendar. “There are so many stupid things in there when you add them all together they add up to real money,” MacLean said. Metro is also spending more fixing leaky affordable housing complexes it runs, as well as increasing air quality testing and enforcement. More money is also going to seismic upgrades so critical water lines still work after an earthquake and $6.5 million will be spent to upgrade the emissions system at Metro’s Burnaby garbage incinerator. The budget was expected to go to a final vote yesterday.

Another Bike to Work Week is ramping up and the City of Richmond is challenging fellow employers to embrace the thrill of allweather cycling. But it seems that the city’s own taxpayer-funded bicycle eet will likely remain in dry storage this fall. According to Vern Jacques, the city’s recreation and cultural services director, Richmond’s $5,000 “green eetâ€? project which makes available 13 Kona Africabike bicycles to city staff is all but put to bed outside of summer months due to a lack of interest. The three-speed cruiser-style bikes with front baskets, large upright seats, sloped-back handlebars, built-in locks, chain guards and rear racks, are intended for staffers to take for short commutes

while on ofďŹ cial business. Of the city’s 13 bicycles, three are kept at city hall, two are at the works yard and the rest are distributed among local community centres, Jacques said. “In the spring and summer, they’re used almost daily at the community centres but rarer at city hall,â€? said Jacques. “And for six months of the year, they don’t leave the city hall garage.â€? Like the weather, that’s not so sunny a forecast for the city’s own Bike to Work Week challenge which runs from Monday, Nov. 1 to Sunday, Nov. 7, ostensibly to get those fairweather cyclists in gear during the off-season and cut down on the number of car trips and parking spaces needed in the city. Richmond began its green eet project with just two bicycles in the summer of 2008, acquir-

ing the rest just before the 2010 Olympics. Jacques said that due to agging interest, however, the city recreation department does not plan to purchase any more of the $300 Africabikes at the moment. “Generally, it’s only people already very inclined to use bikes at city hall who use them,â€? he said, adding that his department may host a refresher course in the spring of 2011 to try to garner more interest in the city’s pedalpowered green eet program. Those who do take to Richmond’s roads on two wheels this week can expect to ďŹ nd free food, drinks, bike repairs, cycling maps and prize draws at Thompson Community Centre on Wednesday, Nov. 3 from 4 to 6 p.m. and the same time Thursday at the Sexsmith Park and Ride at the corner of Garden City Road and Capstan Way.

T

he harmonized sales tax might be eating away at our pocketbooks (has anything dropped in price, as predicted by our Liberal leaders?), but now taxpayers have another level of government to finger. Metro Vancouver’s budget is expected to force average homeowners to fork out another $50 in taxes and fees each year. Add that to a steady rise in local property taxes and massive hikes in utility bills in recent years, along with increased service fees and a looming TransLink tax hike, it seems taxpayers are being nickelled and dimed to death. Metro Vancouver wants to add 24 more full-time staff. At least some of our elected-but-appointed representatives to the board have raised questions. The taxpayer is getting squeezed from all directions, board director Linda Hepner said. Yet, the budget passed a preliminary vote this week and was expected to be approved yesterday. Where’s all the cash going? Metro’s mega SeymourCapilano water filtration project milked taxpayers to the tune of $800 million. That’s pushing water rates continually higher. Sewage treatment plants, including the one at Iona, need upgrades, now estimated at $1.4 billion— nearing the cost of the entire Canada Line. As one Metro director stated, we have to take better care of the planet. It’s hard to argue with that. Yet, our political representatives have to balance that with taking better care of their constituents. Facing rising costs for basic necessities, mostly stagnant wages in the private sector and high housing costs, taxpayers’ fiscal health is no doubt tied to physical and mental health. Today, governments have the ability to do things better—like improving water quality and effectively cleaning up waste water before it hits the ocean. It’s time governments evolve to do other things better, like handling taxpayers’ money. That means not spending nearly $300,000 next year on international travel, including attending a water conference in Dubai. It means working leaner, not just greener.

f you’ve been watching the news lately, you may have heard that the David Suzuki Foundation published a list of the “dirty dozen” chemicals that have been linked to cancer and reproductive issues but are still commonly found in cosmetics and household products. A year ago, there was the big bisphenol-A (BPA) scare and everyone got rid of their plastic water and baby bottles. The sad fact is that there are still dangerous chemicals in our everyday products and our government isn’t regulating them. I’ve been making changes

at home for a number of years so I don’t have a big lot to get rid of. One of the first changes I made was to get rid of my nonstick frying pans. Teflon, it turns out, is showing up in the blood system of polar bears! When it’s heated to high temperatures—and who hasn’t forgotten a pan on the stove?—it gives off some very dangerous chemicals. I switched over to cast iron pans years ago and have never looked back. Yes, they’re heavier and the handles get hot but I picked both of mine up at a thrift store (pre-seasoned!) and I just keep pot holders around. I also love the fact that I’ll be able to pass them on to my children. These pans will be heirlooms! I now buy biodegradable dish soap, dishwashing liquid, and laundry soap. There are so many brands available on the market now that you can pick and choose. I forgo scented dryer sheets and fabric softener though. Not only do the scents give me headaches, but they’re also very expensive. During the

Teflon, it turns out, is showing up in the blood system of polar bears! When it’s heated to high temperatures—and who hasn’t forgotten a pan on the stove?—it gives off some very dangerous chemicals. few times I need to use my dryer, I throw in reusable dryer cloths that I picked up at Save-On-Foods. They’re apparently good for at least 300 loads. I’ve had mine for about three years now—and still no static. We use vinegar, water and baking soda for most cleaning jobs around the house. I got rid of chlorine a long time ago and I no longer get headaches after cleaning the grout and bathroom tiles. For stains on clothes, I use Borax rather than bleach. It also makes a fabulous ant bait if you

ever have an ant problem in the house. Mix it 50:50 with icing sugar and the ants will take it back to the queen. I know there are probably even more tips that I’m unaware of so I’m so happy that the Canadian Cancer Society is hosting an information night, Reducing Chemicals in Your Home, on Nov. 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Richmond Cultural Centre. They’ll be screening the film Chemerical and a number of companies that provide natural products will be displaying their wares. Even though BPA was recently declared a toxic ingredient, I think we have a long way to go. The list of chemicals that are still on the market is long. It’s up to each and every one of us to read labels and protect ourselves. Rather than being overwhelmed by what we shouldn’t use, I think it’s much more empowering to see all that we can.

Mia Boutique BRIDAL & OCCASIONS

Turnstiles are a ‘common sense step’ Editor: Re: “Ditch rapid transit turnstiles, unions urge,” Oct. 23. I was disappointed to read the onesided argument put forward by the union representing transit workers to oppose the installation of fare gates along the Canada Line. They argued it costs more money to run and install the gates than you see back in return. Unfortunately, this argument completely misses the point that the public has been making about our public transit system for decades. The public has said time and time again, “there is no such thing as a free ride.” The installation of turnstiles at rapid transit lines, such as our own Canada Line, is about both fairness and safety of riders. While the vast majority of users pay their daily fares, a good chunk of people don’t—and that’s not fair to either other riders or taxpayers who are footing their bill. All fare evasion reports to date, commissioned by Translink themselves, show there are still 4.1 million stolen rides costing up to $10 million per year. The return rate on fare evasion fines for the few that are caught in ticket checks is less than 15 per cent. There’s no penalty for cheating the system, we must stop the cheater. With respect to safety, it’s clear that fare gates make it more difficult for criminal elements to use our transit

lines for criminal gains. Turnstiles aren’t the be all and end all, but they are a common sense step in the right direction. As taxpayers, we deserve no less. Ken Johnston Councillor, City of Richmond

Overpass needs improvement Editor: For several years I’ve complained about the George Massey Tunnel and the narrow overpass at Steveston Hwy and Highway 99. They were built in 1959, that’s 51 years ago. They create a traffic bottleneck and should be replaced by something that’s appropriate for this century’s drivers. I live at the west end of Steveston Highway and I’m often subjected to three and four light delays at varying times of the day when I try to cross the overpass across Highway 99. Driving in this area is totally unpredictable and extremely frustrating To make matters worse the old Fantasy Gardens site is being developed. I’m all in favour of knocking down that eyesore and having a new modern complex in its place. The road system around the area should be improved before they start a major development. This area is supposedly called the Richmond “Gateway.” Unfortunately it’s very difficult and oftentimes consuming getting through that very narrow gateway. Rick Evans Richmond

resources. A more in-depth examination of the report shows that class composition in classrooms is even more strained. It should be obvious that quality of instruction must eventually decline as the numbers of students/classroom increases, and the class composition becomes ever more challenging. Balancing last year’s school district budget required staff layoffs, and while our trustees and senior staff attempted to protect the core classroom staff, parents are concerned about how this year’s class size and composition report may reflect the challenges to the quality of our children’s education. We commend the continued dedication of our teachers and support

staff for their work in providing a quality education experience, but feel that more money is urgently required to prevent a decline in our highly-regarded educational system. In 2006, the Liberalmajority legislature crafted an excellent piece of legislation. With Bill 33, every school district must annually compile a class size and composition report to obtain a more accurate picture of our children’s instructional environment. The Richmond District Parents Association now urgently asks that the Ministry of Education and the governing Liberals immediately increase funding for K-12 public education. Dr. Eric Yung President

Put Your Best Smile Forward

My dad taught me how to flash—behind the wheel Editor: Long before I viewed a car as an extension of my personality (which would make me about eight) I was taking driving lessons from dad. In, around and over the backseat of my dad’s 1954 Ford I was eagerly learning the required levels of driving skills and verbal encouragement, or abuse, that was required in the piloting of the family truckster. Hands were held at 10 and two o’clock, all the while constantly checking and rechecking the rear and side mirrors. Loud vocal encouragement to the driver in front of you to make that left turn. My dad talked more to the traf-

fic than he did to me, my brothers or even my mom, all put together. Through vocalization, horns and hand gestures he let his fellow drivers know just how he felt about the kind of job that they were doing behind the wheel. Lately it’s been my observation that we all trained from the same father. But we all seem to have forgotten the one proactive thing he taught us: flashing the headlights. Remember when our dads would flash the headlights to warn the traffic coming toward him of trouble ahead. An accident, animal, pothole or fallen tree in the road ahead would warrant flicking the lights on

and off or high to low beam. A radar trap, or “ya bonehead your brights are on” would also induce my dad to offer visual stimulant to oncoming traffic. And in turn they would respond by flashing back, a head nod or the ever popular four fingers raised off the steering wheel. This is how our dads helped their fellow man. So when someone flashes their headlights at you, it’s meant to help. Some people react like I’m shooting laser beams at them. Don’t display the one finger opinion or angrily mouth some words as you pass by me, cause I have no idea what you’re saying. Bob Niles Richmond

The Richmond Community Foundation has made great strides over these past 20 years making Richmond a better place to live, work and play. As the Founding Chair, I would like to pay tribute to all the people of Richmond Board Chair 1990 who have continued to support the dream of the Ralph May ‘Founders Circle’ of dedicated citizens of Richmond who were an integral part of the First Board of Directors in 1990. The first Board included Directors: Jack Bell, Hugo Eppich, Rick Henderson, Kirk Lawrie, Ralph May, Bente Nielsen, Lorraine Palmer and Special Advisor, Joseph Cohen.

Kwantlen misses deadline for U-Pass vote TransLink talks continue by Jeff Nagel

Students also worry they may end up paying more if universities download the costs of administering the U-Pass

program onto them. Talks have been complicated by challenges such as coming up with a workable definition of

which students are eligible, Todd added. A failure to include Kwantlen would leave a big gap in the sup-

posedly province-wide U-Pass Premier Gordon Campbell promised to have in place by this September.

Black Press Kwantlen Polytechnic University students say they’ve lost their shot at joining the transit U-Pass system in time for January due to a negotiating impasse with TransLink. They were supposed to hold a referendum this month on joining the universal transit pass system, which would see each student pay $30 a month for unlimited service. But Kwantlen Student Association reps said they needed more flexibility than the current compulsory U-Pass system and pressed for a custom deal. “It feels like the negotiations are deadlocked,” spokesman Matthew Todd said. “We need the province to step in.” At issue is the lack of adequate transit service, particularly for the campuses in Surrey and Langley. Todd said the U-Pass would be worthless to at least 1,100 of the 18,000 Kwantlen students who live more than one kilometre from any bus route. “We want to ensure it’s fair to all students,” he said. “Those who want into the program can be a part of it and those who live outside of where TransLink actually runs their buses won’t have to pay.” Until now, U-Pass has been an all-or-none system—it only comes to a school if a majority of students vote in favour and all must then pay the extra fee regardless of whether they use it. It’s credited with spurring transit growth and cutting car use at University of B.C., Simon Fraser University and elsewhere. But Todd argued it makes sense to let Kwantlen students opt in or out as they choose. He says TransLink would not be able to take the revenue from Kwantlen students for granted and would have to continue working to upgrade service to them to attract more to U-Pass. Another issue is concern the pass may be less convenient—especially if TransLink moves to issue them monthly and tighten security requirements to counter fraud.

Community foundation celebrates 20 years Donations near $3.5 million

HEATING CHECK-UP!

Contributor One of the city’s largest and most established charities is celebrating its 20th year of Richmond-focused philanthropy this week. From underwriting scholarships for local students to funding arts groups, seniors homes, food banks, parks and community centres, the Richmond Community Foundation has had its helping hand in many different pies over the years, and foundation chair Mike Brow has watched it grow from the beginning. “One of the items that came out of the Community Conference of 1990 was the idea of establishing a foundation where individuals and pioneers from the community wanting to contribute back to the com-

munity could put money in a safe haven where the interest could be used to help and support individuals and organizations making Richmond a better place to work, live and play,” Brow said. Now entering its third decade, the foundation has generated and disbursed over 250 educational scholarships to Richmond students—now averaging about 30 per year —which amounts to roughly 20 per cent of all scholarships given out within the Richmond School District. Coupled with the additional 220 education grants that the foundation has ponied up and given out over its 20-year span, Brow said that, in total, the Richmond Community Foundation has disbursed $750,000 to deserving Richmond students since 1990. Besides rewarding Richmond students, the foundation has also doled out an estimated $620,000 from its permanent endowments for the benefit of local arts groups, family and

disability organizations and the local Scouts Canada organization. “We’re all so happy to be able to come back and look at what we started in 1990 and see what’s been established,” Brow said. “We’ve had close to a thousand donations over the years and that’s contributed close to $3.5 million.” He estimated the organization’s permanent endowment at $3 million—a number that continues to grow substantially, he said. According to the charity’s director of development, Jim Watson, the community foundation only accepts permanent endowments, which the organization invests in order to collect interest. At the end of the year, that interest is donated on behalf of the foundation and the initial donor to a worthy organization of the donor’s choosing. The Richmond Community Foundation celebrated its 20-year anniversary with a reception Thursday at the Green Acres Golf Course.

Record sockeye run may shrink Salmon return likely overestimated by millions by Jeff Nagel

have healthy escapements across the board.” That’s in stark contrast to 2009 when barely a million sockeye returned after more than 10 million were predicted, a dangerously low return for the continuation of stocks that sparked the appointment of the Cohen Commission now investigating that year’s collapse. This year’s 34.5-million run estimate was reached largely on the basis of huge test fishing catches in offshore waters. Test boats were at times netting more than 40,000 sockeye in a single catch and observers on board had to make rough estimates of what they saw gathered in nets before they were released. But as the salmon entered the Fraser River and headed upstream, the numbers counted going past the hydroacoustic detector at Mission were coming in lower. That suggests big test

Black Press It’s still likely to stand as the biggest return of Fraser River sockeye salmon in living memory. But scientists now expect to chop their estimate of this year’s immense run by as much as 20 per cent. That could take the final count of fish from 34.5 million sockeye down to around 29 million, according to Pacific Salmon Commission chief biologist Mike Lapointe. “It’s probably going to be about five million fish less than what the test fisheries were suggesting,” he said. Any run size change won’t become official until at least January when the commission’s Fraser River Panel meets again. “If we do end up being short that will be disappointing from the standpoint of wanting to be right,” Lapointe said. “But it does look like we

catches skewed the run count too high. Making accurate estimates is always a challenge because scientists extrapolate the total run size up from a count of barely one per cent of all sockeye using the various methods. The likelihood of a lower final count was recently discussed by the Fraser River Panel, but Lapointe said the decision was to hold off on officially lowering the run size for now while more data comes in. The final stage of the fish-counting process hap-

pens in upriver tributaries where sockeye spawn and researchers count dead spawners to help build an estimate of how many salmon actually made the full migration. “We’re waiting to see what happens upstream,” said Kyle Addicks, a Washington State fish biologist who is a U.S. representative on the panel. Those counts, expected by January, will be used to further adjust the run estimate. Lowering the estimate now might have simply led to it being raised again later, he noted.

In our home, we rarely get away with less than two pumpkins per kid, all carved early and starting to grimace with rot by the time the big day arrives. I always carve out generous eye sockets and mouths, keeping them for a pumpkin soup for which I’m famous. The rest line the driveway with tiny tea lights and a foil wrapped top. Electrical pumpkins are easier but they don’t capture the sweet spookiness of the flesh and pulp variety. My youngest daughter’s school, Westwind Elementary, does a huge

event where every child carves a pumpkin and the whole pumpkin family gets lit up by electrical lights in the gym on the last school day before Halloween. The sight is something else, a testament to the school’s community and spirit as much as a tribute to our favourite fall holiday. But what should we do with Jack after all the festivities are over? I often forget about our pumpkins for a few days after H-day and by that point, they are almost more liquid than solid, slumping into their haunches, and infested with little gray flies. Last year we put our pumpkins in the outdoor compost. I’d forgotten about them until little squash plants started popping out of the soil made from last year’s old veggies. While they never fully matured, the little plants were a reminder of the life cycle of our compost. I know that not all Richmond families have access to a backyard compost or even a green

can for that matter. This year, Metro Vancouver and Richmond School District have come up with an innovative and fun way to turn kids onto greener ways of dealing with organic waste including their old pumpkins. On Wednesday, Nov. 3, R.A. McMath Secondary is hosting a “What to Do with Jack?” event. Students and school green teams are invited to bring in used pumpkins to the back field where they will go out with a bang. Pumpkins will be catapulted across the field in a smashing explosion and then afterwards, cleaned up and composted in Richmond which is a better way to deal with our compostable Jacko-lanterns (and organic waste in general) and definitely more fun than tossing them in the trash. And if you think of it, this is a fit ending for our favourite orange buddies.

Dynamic dozen on Red Hot pace U-16 girls’ soccer team undefeated by Don Fennell Sports Editor They’re officially the Red Hot Selects, but the Dynamic Dozen would also suit Richmond Girls’ Soccer’s top under-16 metro team. While the opposition routinely has 15 or 16 players in the lineup, the Selects play with a maximum of 12. So far, at least, the advantages outweigh any drawbacks. Much like last season when they lost only a single regular-season game and were unlucky not to advance past the Coastal Cup semifinal, the Selects have started the 2010-11 season on a torrid pace, racing out to a 6-0 record. “The best (advantage of having only 12 players) is that they get to play lots and I don’t have to make too many hard substitution decisions,” head coach Clive Clarke says. Last weekend, Richmond put their unbeaten record on the line in Vancouver against an always-tough Vancouver FC squad. The Selects had a slow start to the first half, but came to life when a slick passing play involving forwards Alura Castle, Summer Clarke and Amrit Berar resulted in Berar crossing the ball into the FC box for Clarke to score. That would prove to be the winning goal in 1-0 Richmond victory. The same three forwards each contributed a goal in a 3-1 win over the North Shore Caps the previous weekend. In the six regular-season games played so far, the Selects have scored 18 goals while allowing only three against. The defensive quartet of Brenda Murillo, Ashley Chen, Alyssa Graeme, and Justine Do have made it tough for opposing forwards to get shots on net, helping keeper Joscelyn Wallace to gain confidence as she continues to improve.

Trojans winning in the trenches by Don Fennell Sports Editor Pete Adams blamed immaturity for the slow start. But just as quickly, the head coach of the Hugh Boyd Trojans’ high school junior football team praised his players for their response. After spotting the Seaquam Seahawks a 14-0 first-quarter lead [the Seahawks scored on their first two possessions], the Trojans

scored the next 28 to earn their fourth win in five AA league games Wednesday in North Delta. The win secured second place in the Western Conference for Hugh Boyd, which conceded first place to North Vancouver’s Handsworth Royals (5-0) in their 14-6 loss to the Royals Oct. 12 in Richmond. The teams each have a game remaining, with Hugh Boyd set to play first-year Eric Hamber next Tuesday in Vancouver.

“Football is a mental game and if you’re not mentally ready to play even one play can turn everything,” Adams said. “It’s a testament to our kids that they sucked it up and got their heads back in the game. I think or hope we can use this to build on, and that we realize we’ve got to show up ready to play.” The game with the ‘Hawks was a good opportunity for Adams and his coaching staff to evaluate the Trojans—from

several perspectives. “Rivalries are great and we’ve got a healthy one with [Seaquam],” Adams said. “We always seem to be slugging it our for something. “For the most part we’ve got similar styles, I don’t know why, and sometimes look like the same team other than the uniforms.” But this week’s tilt was also played at the typically-soggy Seaquam field, which the Seahawks more often than

not take advantage of. That the Trojans, who play their home games on artificial turf, were able to adapt bodes well should they need to play in similar conditions in the future. Adams was particularly pleased with the play of Hugh Boyd’s offensive line, a group whose efforts often go unappreciated except by teammates and coaches. “They physically dominated and didn’t have any breakdowns. That’s

a good example of winning in the trenches,” he said. Travis Coutts, who was playing just his second game after tearing ligaments in a thumb, provided the kind of quiet leadership that Adams believes is invaluable to a team. “He does things he needs to do [to get the job done] and others look to him if they need to figure it out,” Adams added.

Oakley backstops Sockeyes into junior hockey lead by Don Fennell Sports Editor The Richmond Sockeyes spotted the Ridge Meadows Flames the game’s first goal Thursday. But then they reeled off three unanswered to douse the Flames 3-1 and take the overall lead in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League. With a record of 11-2-3, the Sock-

eyes’ 25 points leads the Tom Shaw Conference—a point better than both the Delta Ice Hawks and North Delta Devils. Richmond and Delta still have a game in hand on North Delta, which has played 17 to date. Richmond, which plays in Mission this Sunday, got on the scoreboard shortly after Ryan Stewart gave the Flames the lead at 9:14 of the first period. Drew Spencer

scored at 13:15 to tie the game at 1-1, which is how the opening frame ended. Richmond dominated the second, outshooting Ridge Meadows 14-6 and getting a powerplay goal from Sebastian Pare and an evenstrength tally by Brayden Low. The third period was scoreless. Seafair Minor Hockey grad Aaron Oakley made 29 saves to earn his fifth win in six starts.

Ex-Sockeye McGowan earns hockey scholarship

Offseason preparation is vital for success in short high school football season From Page 19

Hugh Boyd entered the game against Seaquam having edged North Vancouver’s Windsor Dukes 9-8 last week. Hugh Boyd won the game on a 26-yard Jordan Lee field goal with less than four minutes to play. The short high school football season is a challenge for players and coaches alike, lending credence to the cliche, “It’s not what you do during the season, but the offseason that measures

your success.” “Because we have so little time to practise, the kids have to train on their own,” Adams said. For the players who don’t start of get a lot of playing time, their growth can be slow or stunted. Adams, though, has always been a coach determined to get as many players into the game as possible. Adams has already determined that outside of the first quarter, none of Hugh Boyd’s starters will

www.

play in next week’s game at Eric Hamber. That means plenty of opportunity for the remainder of the Trojans to show what they can do. But Adams stressed the game plan doesn’t mean he’s certain of a Trojan victory. “We’re approaching this game to give everyone a chance to play, and these are the kind of games— one of the reasons I like football— where we’ll probably find a kid who will play more after than he has before,” he said.

Brad McGowan as a Richmond Sockeye.

Former Richmond Sockeye Brad McGowan is considered a late bloomer. But he’s also got a promising hockey future. In his second season with the B.C. Junior Hockey League Surrey Eagles, McGowan, 20, is the league’s top scorer with 39 points in 19 games (nearly two points

per game). A Langley native, he has accepted a scholarship to play in the NCAA next season at Rochester (N.Y.) Institute of Technology. McGowan had 91 points in 48 games while leading the Sockeyes to the Western Canadian Junior B championship in 200809.

McMath dominates cross-country championships The R.A. McMath Wildcats overpowered their opposition to claim three of four division titles at last week’s Richmond secondary schools crosscountry championships. The Wildcats earned plaques at the Junior Girls, Junior Boys, and Senior Boys divisions. A strong effort from the A.R. MacNeill Senior Girls prevented a sweep. Five-race winner Patrick

Riddell led a dominating McMath boys’ team which placed seven runners in the top 10, and 11 of the 20 who will advance to the zone finals in Burnaby this week. Riddell, now in Grade 11, led from tape to tape, pursued valiantly by Marcus Ribi of Richmond High. Third place went to the Grade 10 Junior champion Andrew McCaskill of McMath. A runner to watch

is Grade 8 Wildcat Peter Bekenn who scorched the last two kilometers of the six-kilometre course for the last qualifying spot. On the girls side, the McMath Juniors earned first, second, and third overall. Hillary Schaap out-dueled teammate Mackenzie Summers over the final metres to claim first, capping superb performances by both Grade 10 students. Collette

Summers, a rapidly improving Grade 8, picked up the final podium spot for the Wildcats. Other notables who made the zone finals are H.J.

Hounds earning their keep in RSSL’s Second Division by Don Fennell Sports Editor It’s a dog’s world in Group A of the Richmond Senior Soccer League’s Second Division. Four games into the 2010-11 campaign, the DSBH Hounds sit atop the standings with three wins and a draw. Their latest effort, Oct. 24, netted them a 3-0 victory over the West Richmond Rangers (1-2-2) at McNair field. The Hounds were quick to pounce on every opportunity, including an unfortunate red card for a hand ball infraction in the penalty box in the 12th minute that reduced the Ranger roster to just 10 players for the balance of the match. The Hounds

opened the scoring on the ensuing penalty shot, a neatly-placed shot by Emad Ghashghaee into the bottom right corner of the Ranger net. Despite being shorthanded, the Rangers played hard (notably goalkeeper Graeme Lee and midfielder Drew Pelligrin) but couldn’t hold off the Hounds who took a 2-0 lead late in the first half when David Nomm headed the ball past the Ranger keeper off a Domenic Reginato corner kick. The second-half possesion was largely dominated by the Hounds, who added a third goal, again from a well-placed corner kick delivered by Mustafa Cansali that was headed into the goal by Reginato. Hound goalkeeper Daniel Lazar

earned his first clean sheet of the season. In a Group B match, also played last Sunday, the Strikers edged the Jugadores 2-1. The win lifted the Strikers (2-3-0) to within a point of the fourth-place Jugadores (2-2-1) in the standings. Played under prime soccer conditions (overcast skies and dry ground), the game started slowly with both teams cautious. But in the 16th minute Sunny Haer was given a through ball down the right wing by Mike Bassani. Unable to get past his defender, Haer cut inside and got a low, hard shot off from about 20 yards out. The shot was right on the Jugadores’ goalkeeper who juggled the ball giving Matt De Souza time

to knock it loose to Jessy Dhillon who cashed in the goal on an empty net. The goal seemed to inject some pace into the game, and the teams began to trade scoring chances. In the 30th minute, on a scramble, the Jugadores tied the game when Striker keeper Paul Wowk lost the ball in the sun and it bounced over him into the net. The half ended 1-1 with the teams trading several more chances. The second half started with a flurry as the Strikers pressed for the first 20 minutes looking for the go-ahead goal. Off a throw-in by Jeremy Wowk, De Souza was able to direct a low shot to the right of the net to put the Strikers up 2-1 in the 65th minute.

The game was physical throughout, with several hard tackles by both teams. A small altercation took place midway through the second half and as result both teams had a man sent off. The final 15 minutes was intense as the Jugadores pressed for the equalizer, coming close on the several occasions. Wowk (the Striker keeper) made a couple of late saves to help secure the victory for his team. •Only four teams remain in contention for the League Cup, with the semifinals slated for this coming Tuesday at 9 p.m. Club Ireland will play Lulu Island at Minoru Park, while the Richmond Strikers and Club Inter meet at King George Park. The final is scheduled for Nov. 9.

‘Internally-motivated’ Selects are back in action Sunday From Page 19

Clive Clarke says Wallace, who is playing a year up, is learning to be more assertive and to make good decisions in tough games. The midfield of Natasha Magnus, Japkirat Nagra, Madison Higginbotham and Monica Levarsky have provided a steady supply of good scoring opportunities for the forwards. “My emphasis or coach-

ing philosophy is to teach players to be technically proficient so they can play at a high level if they choose,” Clarke says. “We are dominant because we have athletic girls who have been taught how to play, but also because we have a good midfield and a strong defence that includes one of the best defenders in the league.” But the single greatest

strength of the Red Hot Selects is that the individuals play as a team. It’s skill at possessing the ball leads to numerous scoring chances. “The whole team attacks together and defends together,” Clarke explains. “We work on defending to shut down the opposition, while our good attacking also keeps the other team off balance.”

Clarke’s own expectations going into this season were few. He simply wanted the players to continue playing a good brand of soccer. “I talked to the players about continuing to improve their skills, and to work on being consistent and competitive every game knowing that the teams in our league measure themselves by how they play against us,” he

says. “At this age I think each player has to be internally motivated. To that end, I think each of the players has their own expectations, but I [still] expect a certain level of commitment in practice and games. Also, many of the girls are beginning to look toward the future and opportunities to play university soccer and possibly to get a scholarship.”

While Clarke oversees team operations on a day-to-day basis, he says the input from RGSA head coach Frantz Simon has been a great help. “His encouragement to both the players and me [is so appreciated].” Selects are back in action this coming Sunday at 3 p.m. at Hugh Boyd Park against the Coquitlam Metro Ford Breakers.

OBITUARIES

NAGATA, Hiromu Theodore (Ted) After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, Grandpa and friend on October 26th, 2010. Ted leaves behind his wife Avice, his son Darren (Jacki) and grand-daughters Sydney & Brooke. Ted was born in Pitt Meadows, BC on February 4th, 1942 but spent most of his life in Richmond where he and Avice raised their family. His greatest loves apart from his family were golf, hockey, casinos, friends & spending time with his granddaughters. Ted has touched many hearts throughout his life & he will be greatly missed by all. Please join us in celebrating Ted’s life on Tues, November 2nd at 1:30 at Green Acres Golf Course in Richmond. We would like to thank all the staff & volunteers at the Salvation Army Rotary Hospice, all the staff at the Vancouver Cancer Clinic & a special thank you to our doctor & friend, Dr. Cheryl Nagle.

Chris passed away peacefully at the age of 90 years surrounded by his loving family. He leaves behind Olga, his loving wife of 48 years marriage, children Linda (Gary), Laura (Paul), Shirley (Richard), Tony (Carole). His greatest joys were his 9 grandchildren: Natalie (Jim), Michael, Matthew, Tyler, Nicholas, Cristina, Kristin, Bradley and Catherine. Predeceased by his parents Emmanuel and Celestina (Getz) Wolf. Also his first wife Rose (Wandler) Wolfe married 1948 to 1954. Brothers: Sebastian, Jack and Danny; sisters Clementine, Anne, Cecilia and Rose. Sadly missed by his sisters Eva (John) Thome and Helen (Tony) Hepfner. A long time member of the Knights of Columbus, Chris will always be remembered for his faith in God. His love of his family gave him great strength and patience and he touched many lives with his smile, kindness and generosity. A special thank you to a dear personal nurse Maria, and the staff at Richmond Hospital 3N and 3W at Minoru Extended Care for their compassionate care. Chris owned and operated C & L Chevron for 20 years at Garden City and Cambie Road. Chris was a Veteran of WWII who served in the Aleutian Islands.

Joan Lee (left), an RBC retiree, contributes a significant amount of personal time to the Supportive and Palliative Care Unit of Richmond Hospital through the Richmond Hospice Association. Her volunteer hours add much value to the lives of those she touches. Through her efforts, she was able to obtain a $500 donation from RBC which will be directed to the Richmond Hospice Association. Accepting the donation is Richmond Hospice Association executive director Pat Miller.

Donald Dahr, an employee at Richmond-based WorkSafeBC, recently won the BC Safety Authority’s 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award. For more than 20 years at WorkSafeBC, Dahr has worked tirelessly to influence industry leaders, launch provincial safety initiatives and tackle long-standing hazards and safety issues. Dahr will be recognized at a luncheon in Vancouver Nov. 23.

Richmond Chamber of Commerce board chair Tony Kwan (right) welcomed RBC economist Craig Wright to the Oct. 26 chamber business luncheon at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel. Speaking in front of Richmond community and business leaders, Wright gave an update of the economic climate in B.C., Canada and the world since the global economic collapse in 2008. He said a “double-dip” (a second economic failure) is unlikely. Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows visited Jason So, director of group marketing for Auto West Group, at Richmond’s Auto West BMW on Oct. 21. Burrows was signing limited edition photos to support the Steve Nash Foundation and underprivileged children.
