Normally at this time of year the Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market will have long ago gone into hibernation mode for the fall and winter. But this year, things are changing for the warmer. The Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site will serve as the home of the new winter version of the market beginning this weekend. The new market will run every other Sunday through April 10, and the offerings will be kept relatively warm and dry thanks to the cavernous 55,000-square-foot interior of the cannery.

Paula Morimoto, the market’s manager, said her phone’s been regularly ringing since the summer market closed on Oct. 10. People asked why it can’t go year-round. “The demand was mostly from the community,” she said. “It’s a very social event, it brings the community together. There are very few winter farmers markets around in Vancouver,” she said. And with the Gulf of Georgia site now open all year, it seemed like a perfect marriage. Morimoto said the pre-Christmas market will give locals plenty of gift ideas as well as edible goodies. Locals who shop here can meet the people who are actually making the

product, catching the seafood, or growing the fruits and vegetables. They can also take comfort in the knowledge that their dollars are staying in the community, helping to support local farmers. And there’s an educational component as well, with children learning that apples and potatoes aren’t grown at a grocery store, she said. Vendors of the following goods are still being sought: cheese, eggs, beef, pork, chicken, winter vegetables and fruit, hot house tomatoes and peppers. The first winter market is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7. Admission is by donation; shoppers will be free to take in the cannery’s exhibits.

Thousands of kilos of a single type of liquid chemical stored in plastic pales and stacked neatly floor-to-ceiling inside row-upon-row of cardboard boxes, were seized from a local home Thursday by the RCMP’s Greater Vancouver Drug Squad. The secret stash was found inside the three-car garage of a nearly two-acre parcel of farmland at the foot of Gilbert Road, near the dyke and amidst huge active farms, where nosey neighbours are few and far between, affording anonymity aplenty. RCMP Staff Sgt. Dave Goddard said lab tests are expected back next week to confirm the identity of the chemical, but investigators strongly suspect it’s a precursor for the manufacture of illegal drugs. And with the quantity found following an investigation that began a few weeks ago, there’s a significant likelihood that organized crime was involved, he said. Goddard said there were no signs that the custom cedarroof rancher at 13451 Gilbert Rd., dubbed Fraserwinds, was going to be converted into a drug lab.

Richmond’s ranking on BC Hydro’s Top 10 Power Smart Partners list is only the beginning... Just imagine our energy savings and reductions of greenhouse gases if everyone in Richmond took on one new power smart tip. Get started today: t Turn off the lights when not in a room

Richmond has just been recognized as the only city in BC Hydro’s Power Smart Top 10 Partners list.

t Turn off your computer monitor when not in use t Unplug all your chargers when not in use t Visit bchydro.com for more ideas Here’s what the City of Richmond is doing: t We have been building our energy program since 1990. We’ve been progressively reducing our impact on the environment while significantly reducing our energy use and costs. t We have advanced a wide range of smart-energy initiatives, including the incorporation of energy saving technology. Here are some examples: ƒ upgrading ongoing capital projects around the city such as traffic lights, drainage pump stations, as well as building and lighting systems. ƒ new LED lights with smart controls recently installed at Minoru Park not only make the trails safer for runners and walkers, but also use almost 90% less energy than a conventional lighting system. All pot lights at City Hall were converted to LED lighting this summer. ƒ over the past two years, the City’s energy conservation initiatives have reduced greenhouse gas emissions from City buildings equating to taking 100 cars off the road for a year.

It all adds up!

Transportation tops talk on city’s future Mixed response at open houses to coach houses, granny flats by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter Transportation is at the top of people’s minds as the city revamps its official community plan. With an ever-growing population, residents are concerned about traffic congestion around the Steveston Highway overpass; they want to see more emphasis placed on transit and buses and better connections from Steveston to the Sea Island and Templeton stations; and they want improvements for motorists. Those were some of the recurring comments made at a recent round of public open houses about the community plan. Policy planning manager Terry Crowe presented a 2041 Official Community Plan update to council’s planning committee Tuesday. His memorandum also notes residents want to maintain park space and believe the opinions of one neighbourhood should not prevent housing options in another. A review of the community plan, last updated in 1999, began in May 2009. Themed “towards a sustainable community,” the updated plan guides development through the year 2041. It examines a wide range of topics geared at helping the city better manage social, environmental and economic changes as the population grows. Attendance at the five city-wide open houses in October totalled 183 people— triple that of the fall 2009 open houses. Residents discussed new housing options outside the city centre and possible densification around shopping centres.

Chemicals moved to safe storage

The city is considering coach houses, granny flats and duplexes on singlefamily residential lots not located on major roads. A coach house is an apartment above a garage, while a granny flat is a one-storey standalone house in the backyard. Under the proposal, single-family residential lots up to 550 square metres could build either a granny flat or a coach house instead of a secondary suite inside the main house. Larger lots could build a coach house or granny flat in addition to a secondary suite. Crowe has hosted public question-andanswer sessions about the new housing options. “Most people get it. Once they get it, it’s mixed. Some are saying, ‘Yeah, that’s great.’ Some people are saying…‘No, not in my neighbourhood,’” he told council Tuesday. The Monds neighbourhood is one that has expressed some opposition to backyard densification, he said. “Some are saying about privacy, some are saying that the character of the area will change.” He said design standards would be set to ensure high-quality developments and well-thought-out placement on the lot. Crowe’s memo says the public is “responding favourably” to the city’s online discussion forum. From July to October there have been 2,169 visitors to the letstalkrichmond.ca news page and 1,222 visitors to the official community plan forum. The deadline to hand in surveys regarding new housing types and planning around shopping centres was Friday, Nov. 5. The city had received 198 surveys last week.

The fact it happens to be directly across the street from the Lulu Island Wastewater Treatment Plant, helped mask the “fairly pungent odour” generated by the chemicals. The $1.5-million estate, which sits in the Agricultural Land Reserve, features a long driveway and 20-plus parking stalls hidden from view by the house, allowing large num-

Fraudster mines sympathy with health tale, fools gold At least three people have been victimized by a man who approaches people and eventually fools them into buying his fake gold. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley issued a warning Thursday and said investigators are urging other victims to step forward. In each of the three cases reported so far, the suspect—described as an Asian male in his early 30s who stands about five foot seven, with a slim build and short dark hair—approaches a health care provider asking for help in treating his headaches. During the treatment, the suspect claims he is from China and is employed as a construction worker while in Vancouver. The suspect claims he’s found gold, a will and Chinese calligraphy while digging at a construction site and offers to sell the gold to the health care provider. The suspect has managed to convince his victims to meet him in outdoor open areas to purchase the gold, which is later discovered to be fake. “This is a perfect example that if something is too good to be true, it usually is. It’s unusual for gold to be sold in parking lots out of vehicles.” Victims and those with information about this scam who haven’t spoken to police are encouraged to call 604-278-1212 or Crime Stoppers. —Martin van den Hemel

COUNTDOWN TO BUSINESS EXCELLENCE AWARDS The Richmond Review is highlighting nominees ahead of the awards gala Nov. 17.

A coach house, accessible through a back lane, is one new housing option open to developers under the proposed official community plan.

A ‘granny flat’ is also being considered under the new official community plan— a one-storey standalone house that can be built in a backyard.

bers of people and vehicles to come and go as they please without attracting too much unwanted attention. More than a half dozen plainclothes officers were searching the site and documenting their discoveries on Thursday morning, when the Review was called. The chemicals were being moved into a pair of white Hazco trucks for testing, safe storage and eventual disposal. One person was taken into custody for

questioning, Goddard said. All precautions have been taken to reduce the risk to the public, he said. “There’s always a danger to the public where you’ve got chemical precursors, probably improperly stored.” Evidence from the scene has spawned other avenues of investigation, he said. A news conference about the bust is expected likely next week, when police will be releasing more details about their discovery.

Prices continue to rise in Richmond despite slower sales Richmond houses and condos continue to sell at top prices despite a significant slide in the number of sales in October compared to a year ago. According to statistics from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, the median selling price of a house reached $854,000 last month, up 13 per cent compared to a year ago. The median selling price of a condo jumped nearly 10 per cent to $343,000 over the same period. Detached home sales continued to be strong, up nearly 21 per cent in October compared to September. The number of townhouses sold remained the same between September and October, while condo sales dropped a little over 10 per cent. Regionally, home sales have remained steady over the past four months. —Martin van den Hemel

More input sought for temple project The next chance for the community to review Lingyen Mountain Temple’s expansion plans and provide input will be at two public open houses this month. Under the latest proposal, the temple would be 14 storeys at its highest point and house a 12-metre statue of Buddha. Temple officials need to apply to rezone the land. At the open houses, the project team will present updated plans based on input received after the first round of community review. The open houses are Tuesday, Nov. 9, 5 to 8 p.m. at Lingyen Mountain Temple, 10060 No. 5 Rd. and Saturday, Nov. 13, 2 to 5 p.m. at Aberdeen Centre, 4151 Hazelbridge Way.

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter R.A. McMath students got a far-ung lesson in recycling Wednesday afternoon in the parking lot outside their Steveston school. Hoping to urge residents to recycle their pumpkins rather than toss them in the trash to be buried in a landďŹ ll, local volunteers who are engineers participated in a Metro Vancouver demonstration involving a medieval castle-busting contraption known as a trebuchet, or catapult. It hurled the carved orange pumpkins high into the blue sky before they came crashing down near the target: food scrap recycling containers. McMath teacher and Review columnist Andrea Phillpotts used the demonstration to educate the strong turnout of students about the need to recycle. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie yanked on the release line to send one pumpkin—which was just the right size and weight—on a nearperfect trajectory. With Halloween now in the rear view mirror, all municipalities in the region are encouraging residents to put their Jack-o-lanterns either in their yard-trimming containers, or simply bury them in their yard or compost. Organic material and food waste in landfills generate greenhouse gases that hasten global warming.

Oval under budget Sponsorships, new logo in the works by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter The Richmond Olympic Oval Corporation is under budget, having posted a $430,000 second quarter loss, better than the $622,000 loss that had been projected. In a report presented Monday to the city’s finance committee, financial details of the facility’s operations for April to June were made public. The second quarter reflects the “legacy conversion” construction. From January to March there was no operating revenue and minimal program services expense due to the Olympic use period, according to report by Roy McIntosh, the oval’s

manager of finance. In April, the ice was removed shortly after an encore skate on the 400-metre track with 12,000 skaters. A temporary fitness centre opened and some programs were made available to members and the public for the oval’s “soft opening.” In the three months ending June 30 the oval brought in $1.02 million in revenue. That includes memberships, admissions, registered programs, room rentals, equipment and events, as well as funding from the Games Operating Trust and the city. In that same period, $343,000 in program expenses was recorded.

In the second quarter, the oval brought in $1 million in revenue.

John Mills, general manager of the oval, said the corporation is able to meet its sponsorship quota by year’s end. Mills said a new logo for the facility is nearly complete. The approved budget for 2010 projected a loss of $1.19 million. If the final six months meet budget, that loss will be reduced by $192,000 to $1 million, according to the financial report. It is projected there will be a modest positive cash balance at year end.

Nun makes sounds on stage Richmond actress performs in classic musical by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter For an actress with no religious upbringing, playing a nun is a challenge. Vanessa Coley-Donohue has to keep her body rigid and controlled for her role as Sister Agatha in The Sound of Music. “We even have to hide our hands all the time. We can’t use our hands to articulate ourselves, which is weird,â€? says the 25-year-old Richmond resident. As a dancer and former French immersion student, Coley-Donohue is used to ailing her hands about expressively. Sister Agatha is “so different from who I am,â€? she says. The actress doubles up as Frau Zeller in Footlight Theatre Company’s production of The Sound of Music. Set in 1930s Austria, it is the story of Maria, the rebellious young nun-to-be who transforms the lives of Captain von Trapp and his seven children. The show runs Nov. 5 to 20 at Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby. Coley-Donohue has no formal acting training, other than taking drama at Hugh McRoberts Secondary, but has managed to rack up a long list of credits including roles in A Christmas Carol, Joseph, Fiddler on the Roof, Nine, Guys and Dolls, Anything Goes, Faust, Antigone and The Pirates of Penzance. Coley-Donohue has been taking dance lessons since she was three and now teaches dance at South Arm Community Centre, Gateway Theatre and Richmond’s Burke Academy of Dance. She is dance captain for the musical production. “What that entails is keeping everyone in line, quite literally,â€? she says. It’s difďŹ cult to rally 53 actors, many of them young children, but Coley-Donohue says the large cast makes the production look and sound amazing. The Sound of Music was made into a ďŹ lm in 1965 starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. “I have loved that movie forever and have a small, if not a little unhealthy, obsession with Julie Andrews,â€?

opinion Campbell collapse a credit to Vander Zalm

G

ordon Campbell’s fall from the good graces of voters could be credited to one man: Bill Vander Zalm.

An unexpected political foe, given Vander Zalm’s own fall from grace as a Social Credit premier just two decades ago. The public’s distaste toward Campbell has long bubbled below the surface. After ripping up collective agreements and moving health care toward privatization, selling B.C. Rail when he said he wouldn’t and governing at times with an arrogant fist—rather than a compassionate hand. But it was Vander Zalm who ultimately forced Campbell to make an early exit. When the Liberals announced they would harmonize sales taxes in B.C., it generated little discussion. The NDP was silent on the issue and political pundits had little to say. A few weeks later—in July 2009—Vander Zalm called The Richmond Review. He had just e-mailed us a letter to the editor. He told us the government was taking advantage of the working families and the poor—and he had to do something. In his letter, Vander Zalm noted the Liberals chose to reveal its HST plan on the same day the results from the high-profile Braidwood inquiry into the use of Tasers were announced. A tax, he said, is never a good thing. And for the first time, someone had publicly digested the HST as a tax that will “impact everyone and everything,” in the words of Vander Zalm. Thus began the Vander Zalm-led Fight HST revolution. He rallied his friends, who called in reinforcements, and an initiative campaign to force a referendum was successful— despite predictions of pundits that it would fail. The Fight HST campaign centred its anger on the Liberal party and its leader. Campbell never recovered from the blows. While Liberals publicly reflect this week on the great things Campbell has done for our province—and yes, he did lead B.C. away from “have-not” status—behind the scenes they’re wondering how they can right the Liberal shipwreck. What made Vander Zalm’s campaign so successful, is he continued to say the Liberals don’t listen to the people. And because he had the courage to stand up and say something, Campbell has lost his job. The people will be listened to after all—in the HST referendum next year.

Shades of Green Arzeena Hamir

A

couple of weeks ago, my grandfather passed away at the age of 89. He was surrounded by his family, four generations of Hamirs. Just before his death, he met his fifth great-grandchild, Jenna. And while our family supported his care until the end, I am amazed by all the things that needed to be in place in order for that to happen. If I’m able to leave this world with my family around me, I would feel blessed. My family moved to Richmond in 1973. My grandparents, parents, aunt and uncle, eight of us, lived under one roof for almost a decade on the corner of Granville Avenue and No. 1 Road. As a child, I was bliss-

fully unaware of how difficult it must have been for eight people to share one bathroom, except when one of us used up all the hot water. When my aunt got married, we all moved into separate homes but managed to stay in Richmond. My grandparents eventually bought an apartment on Jones Road and my uncle moved in across the street. My grandfather was fiercely independent and continued to drive well into his 70s. When he finally had to stop driving, he was still able maintain some independence by walking to Garden City Mall to do his shopping. My dad, aunt and uncle would then take turns driving him to evening prayers. For awhile, he even took the HandyDART to Richmond Centre for a standing coffee date with friends. Looking back, a number of things had to happen to allow our family to live in this community and support my grandfather. First and foremost, we all needed places to live. My grandfather was lucky that he was able to move into an apartment before prices really

Looking back, a number of things had to happen to allow our family to live in this community and support my grandfather. First and foremost, we all needed places to live. shot up. My parents, too, moved into a two-bedroom condo. But when it came time for my brother and I to live here, there was no way we could do it without help from my parents. I don’t think I need to underline how crucial affordable housing is for keeping families in the same community. The diversity of housing was also essential. I needed a garden and room for two kids whereas my grandfather had needed an accessible, low maintenance apartment. Each household obviously needed employment that was somewhat close by. My mother was a schoolteacher here in Richmond and I too

am blessed that I don’t have to cross a bridge to go to work. My husband takes the Canada Line to work and my brother’s company is on Annacis Island. I think if we all had to commute for any longer period of time, we would have so much less time and energy left to support each other. Last, but not least, my grandfather lived in a walkable neighbourhood that enabled him to still be independent when he could no longer drive. IGA for groceries, Shoppers for prescriptions, and a medical clinic were all within a fiveminute walk. Unfortunately, not every neighbourhood in Richmond is like this. But it should be. And now’s the time to let the city know. Affordable housing, local employment, and walkable neighbourhoods should all be part of our official community plan. Let the city know on its website at letstalkrichmond.ca. Bye Bapa. Missing you a lot but I know you’re in good hands. Arzeena Hamir is co-ordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society.

SATURDAY & SUNDAY

Editor: Most politicians to whom I have spoken agree that about 25 per cent of the voters are stupid. But Rob Howard and John Yap must think all of us are stupid. They say that reducing provincial income tax will boost the economic activity. Then why didn’t Campbell do that before the HST revolt? The fact is that any boost to the economy will not occur until well after income tax time next year, and

then only for a short while until the municipalities have to raise their taxes to replace the money they will no longer get from the province because of its tax cut. Taxation is like a teetertotter. If you want to maintain schools, libraries, road repairs, etc., the money has to come from somewhere. If provincial taxes go down, municipal taxes have to go up. It doesn’t require an economic genius to see that. But

apparently Howard and Yap can’t see that. But Californians saw it after they stupidly voted to lower taxes some years ago. Now California has a horrendous debt. And by the way, what about the billions of dollars of debt that the Liberals have incurred here in B.C.? How will that be paid off? G.S. Simpson Richmond

Traffic made worse

the peak of rush hour, it has never been backed up. Andrew Caras Richmond

Editor: Re: “Overpass needs improvement,” Letters, Oct. 30. There are many improvements needed at this interchange, and others, including that darn old fashioned tunnel, which seems is such a low priority to the ministries and city. Our government decided to spend approximately $7 million on completely useless Highway 99 widening from Steveston Highway northbound to Westminster Highway. I find it humorous there is now traffic congestion in this strip, due to the construction itself. Prior to that, in all my years of driving this stretch at

Shelter priorities Editor: In Richmond’s 2002 homelessness needs briefing paper, the first project listed is to find solutions to meet the demands of emergency shelter for both men and women. Under the priorities, it states “As a community (we) agree that it is not acceptable to pass the problem on to other municipalities.” And here we are, eight years later, still sending the women of our community who are seeking shelter to either Surrey—highly practical when you have no vehicle—or to Vancouver. It is almost criminal that a municipality of 200,000 has nothing to offer women or families unless they are fleeing abuse. It’s time for us all to make the idea into reality.

letters A ball too small leads to tragedy Editor: About a month ago, we had a very devastating case come through our doors. A golden retriever was rushed to us by his distraught owner; he had a ball caught in the back of his mouth. It was acting much like a “ball valve” when air was being inhaled; it pulled the ball right over his windpipe, cutting off all flow of air. Much to our dismay, he was already deceased upon arrival. Despite a lengthy attempt to resuscitate him, he died. The ball he was playing with was one of those balls that you see dogs chasing all the time—about the size of a tennis ball. To make the situation even worse, the owner sustained severe injury to her hand as she attempted to remove the ball from her dog’s mouth. She may never have complete function of her hand again. Time will tell. My message here is please make sure that the ball your dog is playing with is appropriate for the size of your dog. This did not occur through neglect. She thought she had a ball that was safe for her boy. She purchased the ball from a pet store. She did everything right. But she didn’t know just how big a ball had to be so that it was safe for her dog. Now he’s gone, forever. It still brings tears to my eyes to think of him and her, and what she must have gone

through. It’s impossible to give each person an accurate measurement, just how big the ball needs to be for each pet, but as a rough guideline it should be as wide as the outside of the dog’s muzzle. If your dog has been playing with a ball that’s too small please throw it out or give it to a smaller dog. Seek the advice of a veterinarian should you have questions about the size that is appropriate for your dog. I hope never to see such a terrible tragedy occur again. I hope that by getting this message out, the loss of this lovely golden retriever will not be completely in vain. Thinking of you, handsome young boy. Dr. Yvonne Van Duin Island Veterinary Hospital

letters Premier’s televised speech fails to impress Editor: I cannot help but respond to the premier’s recent televised speech with skepticism and question his integrity. He tried to convince us that his government could invest more resources in education while cutting taxes. Common sense tells us that this cannot be the case. The premier also talked about his ambitious goal of improving student performance, but did not mention how. Since the time when Christy Clark was the minister of education, a succession of ministers have sung from the same song sheet. Yet in a recent presentation by the staff of the ministry, student performance in the Foundation Skills Assessment was reported to have dropped. Why? It is common sense that student

performance will improve only when adequate supports are given to struggling students. Unfortunately, this has not been the case because of funding cutbacks. The premier wanted to sell us the idea that student performance will improve by assessing all kindergarten students. More assessment will not help students to perform better unless the supports they need are provided. I suspect the Liberal government will play its old trick again, i.e., announce a few new initiatives and divert funds from the same pot without any new money. The premier is certainly getting a failing score for not learning from his government’s mistakes. Chak Au Richmond School Trustee

OVER 200 LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL WINES

Hold on to Halloween Editor: I am writing to thank the small hearty bands of teenagers who bashed lustily on my door Sunday evening, demanding Halloween goodies. Fireworks exploded like small canons on the street, my guardian jack o’ lanterns kept most evil spirits at bay, and these costumed marauders radiated the joy of the hunt as they stood on my stoop. They had a long long way to go between raids; I saw about one hallowed house per block in the Monds, and fewer on main streets. Stores handing out treats? Community centre gatherings and fireworks? Wishing each other a “safe” Halloween? Bah, humbug! We British Columbians don’t entertain Maritime mummers, we don’t countenance the public chaos and reversals of Mardi Gras, and we don’t even party on graves for the Day of the Dead. The underworldly threats of Chinese Ghost Month are hazy to most. Without a return of Roman candle wars, let’s hold on to the mystery, mischief and just a little mayhem that is the true Halloween. J.

Don’t scrap AirCare, start ‘EcoCare’ instead Editor: Your editorial calling for AirCare to be scrapped because less vehicles are failing to meet emission standards does not consider the damage caused to the environment by pollution not coming from the tailpipe. Many of the cars and trucks on the roads that might pass AirCare are leaking oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze and a variety of petroleum based lubricants. These grease the centre line of our streets, leading to a rash of accidents when it rains after days of dry weather. The waste oil dripping from unmaintained vehicles is washed into the ground or our rivers, lakes and oceans as SWURP (Storm Water Urban Run-off Pollution), contaminating aquifers and aquatic environments. Worldwide it is estimated that 20 million barrels of oil are lost to SWURP every year, with half of this from automobiles. Instead of cancelling AirCare, why not continue to test for emissions plus check for petrochemicals and toxic anti-freeze leaking from vehicles, changing the name of this environmentally friendly program to “EcoCare” instead?

REVIEW

Brrrrrrrrrr ... it’s shaping up to be a chilly winter in B.C. The region is heading into a La Niña year that could create the worst winter weather since 1955, according to some experts, and the Farmers’ Almanac is also calling for a cooler winter with above-average snowfall. Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips says it can be difficult to accurately predict a seasonal forecast, but notes La Niña years are usually cooler, frostier and snowier. “It really comes down to which way the winds are blowing,” Phillips says. “This year, the ugly sister of El Niño – La Niña – is expected. (La Niña winters) typically give us more arctic air than Pacific air ... our outlook shows the flavour for this winter is colder than normal through the province.” Phillips notes that when El Niño and La Niña are involved, it increases the chances of getting the weather

there are no guarantees, but it also tells you that for every warmer-than-average winter, there were three colder winters,” he says. Twelve of those 18 winters were snowier than normal, but six were not.

And in the past five La Niña winters, three were warmer, one was normal, and one was a little cooler, Phillips says. “It may not necessarily be the winter from hell, but likely, we’ll have more winter than we had last year.”

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad this unpopular man is no longer the premier of our province. And what I truly wish for are some new faces to try for the leadership of what was his party, the one that broke a record for the lowest ratings ever.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often said that B.C. politics are never boring. But in the last several years I have to admit that it was boring because of my feelings when nothing ever really changed and it was always the same leaders with a very predictable take on things. Maybe boring is not the right word. Words like mistrust and anger are more accurate. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t envy anybody in public ofďŹ ce these days when so much has been eroded in terms of trust, and concerns about sustainable health systems. As well as education and the homeless. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough job no matter what level of government it is who is faced with complex challenges and responsibilities. Municipal elections take place a year from now. Who on our present council perhaps has been serving too long or isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t listening to their constituents as much as they did when they ďŹ rst took public ofďŹ ce? Because if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not, they should know when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to go.

Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be awesome to see some new councillors, both young and old, around a table making informed decisions to guide the development of what is still a very young, yet vibrant city? They may not have had name recognition power when they ran. (Which can be a killer if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a low turnout of voters.)

Volleyball Eagles soaring Richmond Christian’s volleyball teams enjoying banner seasons by Don Fennell Sports Editor

T

alk about progress. When Hans Fast, cocaptain of the Richmond Christian Eagles high school senior boys’ volleyball team, gathered with teammates for their inaugural practice of the season in September, it took 45 minutes for them to complete a passing drill. Midway into the season the players attempted the drill again and completed it in only five minutes. “Seeing the improvement in our team is by far the biggest highlight so far,” says Fast, who along with his brother Karsten and Connor Ewert, are the only second-year members of an Eagles team aiming to cap an undefeated Richmond league season (8-0) by winning the playoff final Nov. 10. Richmond Christian will host the game beginning at 7 p.m. To say the Eagles have endured some growing pains this season would be understated. They placed second-last in their first tournament appearance, with their only win against a junior boys’ team. They showed improvement to finish 11th out of 40 teams at the prestigious University of B.C. high school tournament, and then made further strides to place fifth in a 28-team invitational tournament in Kelowna a couple of weeks ago where they were able to defeat several ranked teams at both the double-A and triple-A levels. Now, Fast and his teammates believe the sky is the limit. “Coming from a single-A school where there are less than 80 boys in grades 11 and 12, I am very proud,” he says. “Being totally honest, out of all the teams I have played on whether it be soccer, basketball or volleyball I have never seen so much improvement in such a short span.” This is the first year the group has played together. To improve this much, Fast says, is hard “because the chemistry wasn’t there from the start.” For several of the players, this is also their first year playing volleyball. But their embracing of everything new (overnight tournaments, multiple practices and games in front of lots of fans) has already made this a special season. “The fact that (most) everything is new lets us play as if there’s no pressure,” Fast says. “We just go out there and try to have fun, unlike last year where there was always pressure to perform well and win.” Expectations perhaps cost Richmond Christian a provincial championship last season, when the Eagles finished

fourth at the single-A tournament. Coach Mathias Fast said it was a disappointing way to finish a promising season, especially given the talent pool. They battled hard, but losing captain Jason Koepke to an injury for the final part of the season hurt. (Koepke, along with Nathan and Devon Heppner, are all playing at Douglas College this season). While three starters are back from last year’s team, the current squad is notably different. “The only thing the same are expectations,” coach Fast says. “We play as a team and try to represent the school (as best we can).” Many of the current players were spectators at last season’s senior games, which helped them to make a smooth transition from fan to player this season. Richmond Christian, as a school, has clearly embraced the senior boys’ volleyball team as well as the junior boys (coached by Daniel Wong, who is also the assistant coach of the senior boys’ team). “It helps when your players are involved in other parts of school life and are respected by their peers,” coach Fast says. While offence was the name of the game last season, the current senior boys’ team is built on good defence. They aren’t the best passing team, but find ways to get the job done. It may be a cliché, says Fast, but this group of Eagles typifies team play. Every game, different players step into the spotlight. “It’s just solid, fundamental volleyball,” he says. “We’re tough to play when we’re playing with confidence, and the improvement so far has only fed that.” •The provincial single-A championships are Nov. 25-27 in Duncan, at which the Eagles hope to perform their famous pre-game dance chant. But their fans can catch the chant at the team’s final home game Nov. 10.

Daniel Wong photo One of three co-captains, Hans Fast (6) says the progress the senior boys’ volleyball team has made this season is the biggest highlight so far. The team is hoping to cap an undefeated Richmond league season by winning the playoff title Nov. 10.

Coach White strives to teach players balance With a core group of last season’s team back in the fold, expectations for Richmond Christian secondary’s senior girls’ volleyball team are high. But head coach Bob White, who is also the school’s principal, has helped the players to better focus on the task at hand. “They understand what it takes to make the provincials,” he said. “(But) they have set small individual goals for games such as serving so many times and not letting the ball hit the ground.” The strategy has already paid dividends for the Eagles in many forms. They finished third in the competitive Richmond league, with their only losses to first-place Hugh McRoberts Strikers and second-place R.A. McMath Wildcats during

the first and third weeks of the season. Placing in the top three was one of the Eagles’ specific pre-season goals; the others being to win the Lower Mainland zone and to qualify for the provincial single-A championships Dec. 1 to 4 at Abbotsford Christian. The players’ commitment to volleyball is significant. Many participate in club volleyball in addition to playing or practising with the Eagles up to six times a week. As a group, they also display great determination. In one game earlier this season, the Eagles were able to overcome an eight-point deficit (24-16) to win. “We focus on volleyball, but look at the full development of each player. We strive for qual-

ity. We desire to see the girls grow and mature as players.” The success of the senior girls’ program has added to the overall popularity of volleyball at Richmond Christian. Younger players strive to be a part of the team. But while volleyball is important to the players, and in helping to build school spirit, White said it’s important to consider the “full development of each player.” “We desire to see the girls grow and mature as players,” he said. “(But) we try to keep all of life in perspective, and that our students will joyfully serve Jesus Christ in all aspects of life including volleyball.”

Richmond readies for Roadrunner romp 48-team field hockey tournament begins Thursday Field lacrosse is coming in a big way to Richmond in the form of Western Canada’s largest tournament during the Remembrance Day long weekend. The 2010 Roadrunner Romp will feature 28 teams in three divisions, featuring 11 to 16 year olds. Teams will hail from as far away as Seattle and Calgary as well as the Island and Okanagan. Field Lacrosse is growing quickly in Richmond, with registration up 20

per cent from last year. The outdoor game is the fastest growing college sport in Canada and the U.S. With that growth comes an explosion of scholarship opportunities, especially for Canadian players who work hard at their craft, many regarded as having superior stick skills to the American recruits. Local teams take to the turf fields at Minoru Park on Remembrance Day, well after we pay tribute to our veterans. Games begin Thursday at 2 p.m.,

with travelling teams debuting at 1 p.m. Friday, with additional games starting at Richmond High’s field. The host Roadrunners’ U-16 squad sits in the middle of the pack in the Pacific Coast League’s Tier 1 division, and is led by some strongly-scouted players. Team leaders include nationally-ranked Grade 10 Bradley Hofmann, a student at McMath Secondary, Cambie Grade 11 athlete Jonathon Bailey, and 16-year old faceoff-specialist Jordan

FUNDRAISER FOR HOSPICE IN RICHMOND

Gilles, also a McMath Student. Jason Boshard’s team opens up hosting Valley Attack on Remembrance Day, before entertaining a Richmond High, afterschool audience Friday by taking on Penticton at 2:30 p.m. They finish up next Saturday against Seattle. The hosts will be in tough however, as three of its players will miss the games to play in a competition in Baltimore. Rob Pearsall’s U-14 ‘Runners take on South Fraser Thursday, face off against North Okanagan Legends (Vernon) at 5:30 p.m. Friday, and play Victoria-based Baggataway on Saturday afternoon. The U14 division will see some high-quality competition including Calgary’s travelling squad, along with the top Adanac team from Coquitlam and Vancouver Island’s top squad, Victoria Titans. Demand at that age group actually encouraged organizers to expand the tournament from 24 to 28 teams. Rod Jensen’s U-12 Richmond squad might actually be best perched for a run to the final, though some hard work will be required to get there. They host Vancouver’s Barbarians on Thursday, South Fraser on Friday afternoon, and Kelowna Kodiaks at lunchtime on Saturday. Saturday’s action includes a suppertime feature between two of the top men’s squads in BC.—Ladner Pioneers of the Canada West League, recent silver medallists at the Canadian championships in Montreal, and arch-rival and firstplace Coquitlam at 6 p.m., followed by two U-14 quarter-final elimination games to finish off the night before the playoffs begin in earnest Sunday morning. Final games are at 2 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday at Minoru. Admission is free to all games, and food and beverages will be available onsite.

Martha O. Varnes With great sadness we announce the passing of Martha O. Varnes (nee Cherwick) after 90 full years on this earth. Avid Scrabble player, keen gardener, constant mother and loving grandmother, her joyful laugh, delicious pies, and no-fuss approach to life will be dearly missed. Born in Saskatchewan in 1919, Martha moved to BC in the early 1940’s. She married James (Jim) Varnes in 1946, and together they moved to Richmond in 1957. There, on their acre of blueberries, fruit trees, and vegetable gardens, they raised their three boisterous boys, and ingrained themselves into early Richmond life. When her children were older she returned to work as a clerk at the Workers’ Compensation Board, but family remained her priority. Summers were filled with camping trips, fishing trips, and working in the garden. Her freezer and pantry were always filled with the fruits of her labour. An orange kitty could always be found nearby. In her later years, following the death of her husband, Martha enjoyed outings with the Richmond Golden Rod and Reels club, Wednesday cribbage sessions at Minoru Seniors Centre, and traveling with friends. She remained a fixture in the family, a hub, and made it her mission to bring together the Cherwick and Varnes sides of the family. At her prompting a family reunion was held in 2009, with both sides happily discovering that their small family was, in fact, not so small after all. Martha is predeceased by her husband James (Jimmy), sister Julie, and brother Steve. She is survived by her sons David (Francoise), Richard (Debra) and Kenneth, niece Cherry and sister-in-law Sara. Martha was a devoted grandmother to Sabine, Astrid and Collyn (Rena), and greatgrandmother to Caleb and Magnus. Great Aunt to Steve’s children Brenda (Laurier), Becky and Bill, and Cherry’s children Cara (Mark), Brian (Karen), and Gary (Caroline). Family dinners were made richer with step-grandchildren Miranda (Mike) and Iris (Ray). A memorial service and reception will take place on Monday, November 8th at 1pm at the Richmond Funeral Home. The family invites all who knew her to partake in the celebration of her life. She will be interred next to her husband at Mountainview Cemetery, where they can dust off the Scrabble board and pick up where they left off… trying to find a space for that darned Q.
