Suspect arrested in lowspeed chase

Naturalists urge city to act Page 3

Attempted murder suspect fled city by Tracy Hughes and Martin van den Hemel Black Press A local man wanted by Richmond Mounties for attempted murder was arrested following a dramatic low-speed police chase on the Trans-Canada Highway between Salmon Arm and Sicamous Friday morning. The 57-year-old suspect, who was already facing domestic violence charges, fled Richmond following an altercation around 2:30 a.m. Friday RCMP Cpl. Annie Linteau said a man broke into a local woman’s home and a struggle ensued between the pair. Police say the man was known to the woman, but aren’t saying the extent of the woman’s injuries, or how they were inflicted. Local investigators had information he may have been heading to Shuswap, and so contacted the area detachments. “Sure enough, we spotted the suspect vehicle and we began to follow it,” says Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane of the Salmon Arm detachment. “The big thing was we did not want to get into a pursuit, we did not want to push him into getting into a chase with icy roads and possibly risking public safety.”

Toy room spreads Christmas cheer Families line up for help from the Richmond Christmas Fund by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter There’s nothing quite like putting smiles on people’s faces at a time of year that many less fortunate families dread. That’s precisely what volunteers were doing Thursday afternoon at Richmond Caring Place, where Richmond Christmas Fund program assistant Ian Chian was helping direct the sorting of the mountain of donated

children’s toys. By Thursday afternoon, on just the second day since registration began, the Christmas fund had already seen 215 families sign up. It’s a sign of the extent of the need by local low-income families who don’t have money to spare for the gifts and the giving that can make this time of year so special. Lindsay Baker, spokesperson for Volunteer Richmond, which organizes the annual effort, said toys for children of

all ages, from infants to 12-year-olds, are still being sought, though they don’t need any more stuffed animals. Eligible local families who are successfully screened for income levels are given access to several toy rooms, where they can pick out the types of toys, books and games their children might like most. More information about registration for the program is available at or by calling 604279-7020.

Landfill would threaten wildlife, naturalists say Sandhill Cranes use wetland habitat as breeding site by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter An environmental group is urging city council to protect a wildlife habitat in East Richmond before the site is potentially filled with waste. On Tuesday, a representative from Nature Vancouver asked council’s parks and recreation committee to help save an 80-acre parcel of land southeast of Blundell and No. 6 roads on the Agricultural Land Reserve that it has dubbed the “Lulu Island Wetlands.” The landowner, Ecowaste Industries Ltd., operates a landfill just east of the property. In 2008, the company submitted a non-farm use application to use the wetland as a fill site. City staff met with Ecowaste Tuesday and said the company still plans to bring its application forward and will likely have the required information by January. “Their intent is to fill

the site about five metres—it will take about eight years…They would do agriculture on top of that,” said policy planning manager Terry Crowe. The company is proposing to eventually grow blueberries, but it’s too early to say just what would fill the site for the first eight years. Ecowaste’s current landfill accepts inert refuse, mainly from construction and demolition activities. Crowe said a 10-acre environmentally sensitive area (ESA) in the northwest corner of the property would remain as such. If council approves the coming application, it would then be forwarded to the Agricultural Land Commission. The landfill prospect concerns Julian Hudson, a member of Nature Vancouver’s birding committee. He says the wetland is one of just four Lower Mainland breeding sites for Sandhill Cranes.

The cranes are yellowlisted by the B.C. Ministry of Environment, meaning they are not at risk of extinction, but Hudson says the population has dwindled to an estimated 16 to 20 pairs in the Lower Mainland. “They used to be quite extensive in the days before Vancouver was developed,” he said. The wetland is not only an important breeding ground and stopover area for sandhill cranes, it is also a natural habitat for black-tailed deer, beavers, Pacific tree frogs and American bitterns, according to Nature Vancouver. Numerous waterfowl use the site and several birds of prey, including at-risk barn owls, have been seen hunting in the area. Hudson explained that the property was used for peat mining from the 1940s to 1970s, and has since reverted to its natural wetland and bog forest state. The site is bound on the James Murray photo Mounties arrested a 57-yearold Richmond man wanted for attempted murder Friday morning.

In a scene similar to the infamous OJ Simpson chase, Keane says a police negotiator was in contact with the suspect. The suspect was driving under the speed limit through Salmon Arm and tailed by police as an RCMP helicopter shadowed high overhead.

Eventually, the man pulled over to the side of the highway between Salmon Arm and Sicamous, and police arrested him without incident. It is not known if the man had a weapon with him. There are unconfirmed reports police found a pair of bloody gloves in the back seat of the vehicle. The Trans-Canada Highway eastbound was closed off briefly as police made the arrest. The Richmond Review has learned that the suspect was charged in Richmond provincial court with assault and uttering death threats in a domestic violence incident on Oct. 2. He was next scheduled to appear back in court on

Monday. It was not known at press time Friday whether the attempted murder involves individuals connected to the domestic violence case. The Review is not publishing the suspect’s name because police had not charged him as of press time Friday afternoon. The suspect was released last month on a number of conditions, including that he not contact his alleged victim and numerous other individuals who appear to be members of the same family. He was also barred from drinking alcohol or taking drugs, and banned from possessing any firearms. He is also charged with breaching his bail conditions on Nov. 4.

way to better access the Fraser River Port Authority under the Asia-Pacific Gateway initiative. But according to one city councillor, Richmond may not have the dollars or the interest to preserve the wetland. “The only way I think to

save this particular land is for someone to buy it and Richmond, I’m sure, is not interested,” said Coun. Harold Steves, noting the city recently committed itself to preserving the Garden City and Department of National Defence lands.

It was a frustrating experience for hundreds of Richmond commuters, but Canada Line operator Protrans is hoping to restore public confidence by proving it has learned from Thursday morning’s snowstorm which disrupted service for hours. Contrary to early reports, Protrans spokesperson Jason Chan said only a single train was halted by the weather Thursday, stuck between Aberdeen and Bridgeport stations because of the build-up of snow and ice. No passenger train was ever stuck on the North Arm Canada Line bridge, Chan said. It wasn’t so much the snowfall that caused complications, he said, but rather the combination of this week’s weather conditions. The unusually cold weather, which hit -10

Martin van den Hemel photo Thursday’s snowstorm shut down Canada Line service between Bridgeport and Marine Drive stations for several hours.

Precautionary measures were taken in the overnight hours, from 1:30 to 4:30 a.m., when the Canada Line is normally shut down for maintenance. Trains were kept running to ensure the tracks

put in use. As soon as the trains went into service, the de-icing runs ceased. But that’s precisely when the snowstorm hit full throttle. As a result, snow and ice quickly accumulat-

ed, ultimately interfering with the transfer of power from the power rail to the trains. One train that became stuck around 9:30 a.m. wasn’t dislodged until about 10:30 a.m., Chan said. TransLink spokesperson Drew Snider said cross-Fraser Canada Line service was shut down between Bridgeport and Marine Drive stations. Coast Mountain supplied as many buses as it could afford for a special shuttle bus service to get passengers between Bridgeport and Marine Drive stations. Chan said Protrans has definitely learned from Thursday’s storm. One alternative is to run more de-icing trains, and probably interlace them with the fleet’s passenger trains. “Hopefully we can restore some of the lost confidence by proving we’ve learned our lesson and by providing reliable service,” Chan said.

Animal society sued by victim of two-dog attack Silvia Butterman claims RAPS negligent by failing to warn city of dogs’ bad reputations by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

A Richmond woman has sued the Richmond Animal Protection Society, claiming its negligence ultimately contributed to her being violently attacked by two dogs while out for a walk. In a statement of claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court earlier this month, Silvia Butterman, who works as an office manager, claims she was attacked by two dogs that jumped over a fence to get at her. In the Nov. 23, 2008 incident, Butterman said she was walking on a sidewalk near 4031 Tucker Ave., near No. 1 Road and Westminster Highway.

She said she was suddenly pushed to the ground by the dogs which bit her and lacerated her body in an attack that lasted for several minutes. “The plaintiff says that the owner of the dogs who attacked the plaintiff, and the dangerous nature of the dogs, was known to the City of Richmond and the defendant, as a consequence of communications received from citizens who had complained to the city and the defendant... about the aggressive and dangerous nature of the dogs on occasions prior to the attack on the plaintiff,” the statement of claim states. “ The dogs had in fact been designated ‘dangerous’ within the

meaning of relevant bylaws.” Butterman’s lawyer, Robert Mostar, of Pryke Lambert Leathley Russell, claims that the animal society “failed to perform the services it had contracted to perform for the City of Richmond through its failure to enforce City of Richmond bylaws as they applied to the dogs who attacked the plaintiff and their owner.” Mostar claims that the animal society “owed a duty of care” to the plaintiff, and “failed to exercise that duty toward the plaintiff t h ro u g h i t s n e g l i gence.” Butterman suffered “punctures of her flesh to the bone on several locations on her body” as well as blood loss,

a fall to the ground resulting in soft tissue damage to her hip and mid-body, trauma, shock and psychological distress, and bruises and contusions. Butterman is claiming general and specific damages, as well as health care costs and interest. Animal society president Carol Reicher t would not comment about the case. City spokesperson Ted Townsend said Butterman initially launched an action against the city about two years ago, but at that point didn’t name the animal society. The case is now in the hands of the lawyers for the city’s insurance company, and Townsend said he could not comment further.

As B.C. Liberal leadership candidates join the chorus calling for an increase in Canada’s lowest minimum wage, the government has begun laying the groundwork for the first increase in nine years. Labour Minister Iain Black said he has asked staff to consult with business and labour over the next three months. Black’s announcement came hours after Shuswap MLA George Abbott announced his leadership bid, featuring a promise to review the minimum wage. MLA Moira Stilwell, the first leadership candidate to declare, has called for it to be increased immediately from the current $8 an hour to $8.50, with 50-cent increases every six months until it reaches $10. Finance Minister Colin Hansen said this week that only 2.3 per cent of B.C. workers are paid minimum wage.

Abbott tosses hat into Liberal leadership race Coun. Greg Halsey-Brandt showed his support for MLA with ‘consultative approach’ by Tom Fletcher and Martin van den Hemel Black Press Perhaps it’s time for B.C. to have a premier with roots outside of the Lower Mainland. That’s part of the reason why Richmond councillor and former Richmond Centre MLA Greg Halsey-Brandt showed his support Thursday morning at a press conference where Shuswap MLA George Abbott announced his intention to run for the B.C. Liberal leadership. “George comes out of local government... So I found when I spent my time in the cabinet with him and on government with him that he was a much more consultative kind of asking what the MLAs thought about different policies and that sort of stuff,� he said. “He knows local government and he knows how we operate.� In trying to come up with solutions to things, Abbott uses a consultative approach, reaching out to cities, chambers of commerce, unions, First Nations groups, Halsey-Brandt said. “I think George would set a new direction for the government in terms of consultation with a broader group of the caucus and the public...� The other speculated Liberal leadership candidates aren’t as Liberalminded as Abbott, and tend to be more right of centre of the party, Halsey-Brandt said. “Obviously policies that are directed from

above without consultation haven’t worked, and the worst example is the HST. So I think to continue that top-down policy direction is really not what we need in the province right now.� Abbott was flanked by supporters from the B.C. Liberal caucus as well as community and First Nations supporters as he announced his bid for the party leadership Thursday. Joining Abbott at his announcement at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver were Environment Minister Murray Coell and MLAs Gordon Hogg, John van Dongen, Richard Lee, John Rustad and Don McRae. Hogg said other MLAs not present but supporting the Abbott campaign are Kash Heed, Norm Letnick and John Slater. In his speech, Abbott pledged that if he is chosen by party members to take over for Premier Gordon Campbell, he will move up the date of the initiative vote on scrapping the harmonized sales tax so it is held by June 24, 2011. The government would have to amend legislation to change the scheduled date of Sept. 24, 2011, and Elections B.C. officials estimate it would take several

While avoiding criticism of Campbell, Abbott said he plans to run a more “collaborative� government that will reach out to people in

all regions. The popularity of the B.C. Liberals is “in the ditch� and the new leader has a big job ahead to regain public trust. “I hope the next bump we feel is the vehicle coming out of the ditch and onto the road,� Abbott said, displaying the sense of humour he has become known for since being elected to the legislature in 1996. A berry farmer and college political science teacher before entering politics, Abbott emphasized his rural roots and emphasized the importance of developing B.C.’s resource economy. Also joining Abbott at the announcement were Klahoose First Nation Chief Ken Brown, Gitsxan Chief Elmer Derrick, Sicamous Mayor M a l c o l m M a c Le o d , Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper, and Salmon Arm Mayor Marty Bootsma. Abbott resigned as education minister before making the widely anticipated announcement. Tourism, Trade and Investment Minister Margaret MacDiarmid has added education to her duties while the leadership contest is underway. B.C.

Richmond celebrates 20 years as a City By Malcolm Brodie This December 3rd marks the 20th anniversary of Richmond’s evolution from Malcolm Brodie a Township to Mayor a City. Happily, our community’s underlying values have remained intact even though we’ve gone through significant growth in that time. Our population has increased over 50 per cent to almost 200,000 residents since 1990. Our cultural diversity has made Richmond unique. Many ethnic groups have increased in size, especially the number of residents of Chinese descent whose numbers have almost tripled. No longer a sleepy Vancouver suburb, we’ve grown into a major business and tourism destination area. Recently, a comprehensive study gave us top regional marks for Richmond residents feeling connected to their city. An example of this connection is seen in the growing number of people, especially youth and employees of Richmond companies, who volunteer daily. Recognizing the importance of good health, the City has improved access to recreation through more community facilities such as rinks and artificial turf fields. The Olympic Oval is already adding significantly to community programs by providing a centre of recreation, wellness, sport, and fitness.

Derek Dang Councillor

Our public transportation and green space have also undergone major change for the better. The Canada Line has opened up many opportunities for visitors, businesses and residents. We have significantly expanded our parks – Terra Nova, Garden City, Middle Arm and Odlinwood to name just a few. Adding hundreds of community garden plots to meet the overwhelming demand complements the thousands of trees planted and the many kilometres of boulevard landscaping. Richmond has sought to protect farmland as well as our environmentally sensitive areas. We have made commitments to reduce our carbon footprint along with greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, the City will feature some of the lowest emission levels per capita in the region. The list of concerns addressed by City Council since 1990 is very long – affordable housing, bicycle lanes, childcare spaces, liveability, safety of our community, literacy, sport hosting, sustainability, tourism, green roofs, infrastructure replacement, public art and industrial land to name but a few. These have all been a part of our planning since Richmond officially became a City. To grow and improve our quality of life at the same time is a major achievement. Everyone in Richmond has helped make this happen in their own way – including our youth, businesses, active seniors and thousands of volunteers. We are a better place because of you.

Winter 2010 Community Bulletin 2010 ̱ׄ‫ੇڊ‬௢৮

Canada Line — One Year Later It’s not only the largest infrastructure project in B.C.’s history; it has become one of the province’s biggest successes as well. In one year, the Canada Line has recorded 36 million boardings, meeting its targeted 2013 ridership projections of 100,000 passengers a day, three years earlier than scheduled. In addition, the Province is providing $40 million for the Smart Card Turnstile Project, to help with efÀciency, assist in preventing transit fare evasion and improving the sense of security on SkyTrain. Canada Line opened ahead of schedule, on budget, and continues to receive the acclaim that it deserves. “To those who said it couldn't be done and shouldn't be done, I say enjoy your meal of crow. To those who got it done, on behalf of the people of Richmond I say thank you. The Canada Line is a legacy for the province of British Columbia.” MLA Rob Howard in the B.C. Legislature, June 2, 2010.

Investing in Richmond: Some 2010 Highlights The year is almost over and it’s been Àlled with excitement and growth throughout Richmond. We hosted the world, not only enjoying the competition here for the 2010 Games, but also creating a lasting legacy with the beautiful new Olympic Oval and Spirit Square for our community and local visitors to enjoy. Over the year, we’ve seen the beneÀts of the new Lansdowne Road expansion, better connecting downtown Richmond to the Oval, and the Canada Line, encouraging people to get out of their vehicles with new bicycle lanes and sidewalks. Work started on the new Samuel Brighouse School and work began to expand the Richmond Hospital, upgrading its emergency department and outpatient services, and our community got a boost to safety thanks to 100 per cent of trafÀc Àne revenue or almost $900,000 returning to public safety and important municipal services, on top of which we also received extra Provincial funding for Áood prevention. Our community is growing and our province is investing to support our success.

Open Skies, New Opportunities This year, Skytrax World Airport Awards announced YVR was the number one airport in North America, as determined by passengers which is not surprising considering the hard work of the YVR board, management and staff. This is a great launch pad towards Open Skies, a policy allowing freer movement of air trafÀc, attracting airlines from around the world to YVR, bringing jobs and spin off beneÀts to our economy. I’ve been touring B.C. airports and meeting community groups promoting Open Skies, speaking at the Abbotsford Air Show, the Taiwan Chamber of Commerce in BC, the Destination Marketing Organizations Association and the Routes Conference. Opening up international air access to our airports is integral to the success of Canada’s PaciÀc Gateway. With the multicultural mix of people that Richmond enjoys, it is crucial that we have increased options and direct Áights to more countries.

Police recall breathalyzers, pause ‘warn’ impoundments by Jeff Nagel Black Press B.C. police forces will recalibrate all their handheld breathalyzers so they only register a warn read-

ing resulting in tougher roadside impoundments at a blood alcohol level of 0.06. B.C. Association of Chiefs of Police chair Jamie Graham said Friday

the change will provide a buffer to ensure any error in roadside breathalyzer tests don’t trigger unfair penalties against drivers who actually have a blood alcohol level of just

under 0.05. Until all 2,200 devices are recalibrated— expected to take 10 days— police won’t issue longer roadside suspensions to drivers who blow a warn. Graham said the change

comes “out of an abundance of caution” so motorists close to the line get the benefit of the doubt. RCMP tests found the breathalyzers could be off by up to one per cent.

Since Sept. 20, police have issued more than 3,000 roadside suspensions and impoundments as a result of the tougher administrative penalties, many for drivers who blew TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS Vancouver 551 Robson St. Bentall Tower Three Oakridge Centre Pacific Centre 2163 West 4th Ave. 2338 Cambie St. 925 West Georgia St. 689 Thurlow St. 1855 Burrard St. 3121 West Broadway 2748 Rupert St. 950 West Broadway 1707 Robson St. 1092 Kingsway 3490 Kingsway

in the warn range. The new rules brought a minimum three-day driving ban, a $200 administrative penalty and a $500 licence reinstatement fee for drivers caught in the warn range. Cars can also be impounded for three days and drivers can be billed for towing and storage— without ever exceeding the 0.08 legal limit. The penalties confused many motorists who wondered if they could be harshly penalized after just one drink with dinner, and restaurants and bars complained of an immediate drop in sales. B.C. Restaurants and Foodservices Association president and CEO Ian Tostenson said the planned recalibrations don’t go far enough to avert what may be a dismal holiday season for the hospitality industry. “It represents baby steps,” Tostenson said. “It is not enough in my opinion that is going to change anything really substantially.” He wants the province to reduce the penalties that apply in the warn range, or give police more discretion to waive them. “The problem is not the people who we scared who would love to have a glass of wine or two with their meal,” Tostenson said, adding the government should concentrate on punishing those who actually exceed 0.08. Police can still issue 24hour suspensions while the recall is underway—as they did in the past—and can do so based on their own observation of erratic driving without a roadside breathalyzer. Drivers who want to contest the suspension can give a formal breath test at a police station to beat it, but risk being charged with impaired driving. The handheld breathalyzers are to be back in service for the Dec. 1 start of the Christmas CounterAttack campaign. For those who still blow too high after the breathlyzers are recalibrated, the harsher penalties will remain unchanged. Besides losing their licence and car for three to 30 days, motorists face costs of up to $4,000 to get back on the road. Three impoundments within five years now forces a driver to take a responsible driving course and use an ignition interlock device for a year after their ban is lifted. The minister has not yet responded to Black Press requests for comment.

opinion The sky is falling


his week’s brush with snowy, cold weather is a stark reminder that despite living in the most temperate climate in Canada, we are still a part of a wintry country. And we’re not very good at it. The first snowfall of the season is always exciting. Who amongst us didn’t make a beeline for the window first thing Saturday morning to see just how much of Friday night’s snow was sticking around? But the chaos that ensues makes us the butt of jokes in the rest of the snow-encrusted country. All last week weather forecasters warned us in dour, doom-filled tones this was coming. As S-Day neared, they issued breathless warnings, first for two to four centimeters, then five to 10 centimetres! TV news crews rushed to local garages to interview harried mechanics booked to capacity installing snow tires. They descended upon works’ yards to shoot impressive mounds of sand and salt. Newspaper reporters made dutiful calls to emergency shelters to see how they would care for the homeless. Merchants in malls and shopping centres rubbed their hands in anticipation of an appropriately seasonal feel to the start of the Christmas shopping rush. And we responded, as anyone who popped into a grocery store Friday evening for a loaf of bread may have witnessed from their spot 10 people deep in the checkout line; people were stocking up to hunker down and ride out the storm. Somewhere in Calgary, where it was -15C on Saturday with a foot of snow already on the ground, someone is chuckling at our expense. Mother Nature gave us a pass last year. But climatologists say this is a “La Nina” year with a very active jet stream bringing us cold temperatures from the north and moisture from the Pacific Ocean. And when they combine, that often means snow. So we’d better get used to it. Meanwhile, in Toronto it was 14 degrees and raining on Monday. Hmm. —Burnaby NewsLeader

Shades of Green Arzeena Hamir


n my time as a staff person and board member at the Sharing Farm in Terra Nova, I’ve had the opportunity to work with thousands of volunteers. It’s been wonderful to meet each and every one of them and see their satisfaction, at the end of the day, when they know they’ve made a difference in the community. From time to time, however, you get to meet certain gems and, one in particular, has made a special imprint in my heart. I don’t recall exactly when Norm Stick arrived at the farm. I do remember that we were all lamenting how machinery and tools were breaking down. Someone

mentioned that we needed to put an ad in the paper for an “old fart” that could putter around and give us a hand. I don’t think I ever called him that but Norm certainly fit the bill: experienced, retired, and willing to help. I understood that he had worked as an aviation mechanic and was originally from Newfoundland. That became apparent one day when he looked on, in horror, as we composted the turnip tops before sending the roots to the Food Bank. “That’s the best part!” he cried. Apparently, turnip tops are a Newfie delicacy. From then on, we saved a box just for him. Being a mechanic, he quickly surveyed the sad state of our equipment and went to work, sharpening and organizing. Our donated ride-on John Deere mower had just died and he worked his magic, replacing the battery and giving it a tune up. When no one jumped to use it right away, he went to ride it through our hazelnut orchard and Chief Mower became another of his long list of titles at the farm. That was the beauty of

In typical Norm fashion, he cleared up the area, added manure, raised the beds, and built the most amazing garden. Norm. He saw what needed to be done and he did it. Our tool shed was a mess so he set up a system of hangers, and voila! We no longer were getting impaled every time we opened the door. One summer, he approached me and asked if we were doing anything with the patch of land just next to our field office. I looked at the area, covered in blackberries and comfrey, looked at Norm, and said, “If you can do anything with it, it’s yours.” Not only was it infested with the worst weeds, it was on the north side of a woodlot and constantly flooded. Well, in typical Norm fashion, he cleared up the area, added manure, raised the beds, and built the most amazing garden. This summer, I asked

Norm to join me to visit the Agricultural Machinery Museum in Fort Langley to look at small-scale grain equipment. He and my youngest daughter sat in the back of the car as we zoomed down Highway 1. As my daughter covered his hands with princess stickers, he recalled the trips he took, crisscrossing the country with his own children. All of a sudden I heard a cough and an “Oh no.” Poor daughter was car sick all over herself and managed to get Norm too. “Not a problem,” he said. We pulled into a gas station and he cleaned up my daughter and himself. Norm Stick passed away a few months ago but his presence will forever be remembered. If you spend some time with us at the farm, you might overhear us say “That’s in Norm’s Room” or “That came from Norm’s Garden.” I can’t imagine that those areas will ever be called anything but.

letters Hospice fundraising event a success Editor: On behalf of the Richmond Community Hospice Foundation, thank you to everyone who helped to make last Thursday’s fundraising event “Contagious Kindness: An Evening with Olivia McIvor,” such a wonderful success. Last year at this time the Richmond Hospice Association lost the Vancouver Coastal Health funding that it had received for the last four years. The association continues to provide programs and services for Richmond residents with lifelimiting illnesses and their families as it has for the past 24 years. The loss of funding directly affects volunteer management and training for hospice visiting volunteers. It also affects the one-to-one and group grief support currently being offered free of charge. Without the support of our sponsors The Richmond Review, Anna’s Cake House, Parker Place, the foundation and association board members and our dedicated volunteers, this would not have been possible. Anne Gore President Richmond Community Hospice Foundation

There are still good people in the world Editor: There are still good people out there. On Nov. 15, I went to IGA Garden City and on my way home, I didn’t notice that my wallet was lost. I called IGA to ask if somebody left a wallet in the store with the staff. Someone did. I started


identifying the content of my wallet to confirm it was mine. Thank you Lord, it was my wallet. I immediately asked the staff member if she knew who the person was who turned it in. Unfortunately, nobody knows. So, to you, Good Samaritan, whomever you are, thank you so much, you saved me going through a lot of hassle. Because of your good deed, it renewed my perception that there are still honest, trustworthy and good people out there. Ligaya Julao Richmond

Liberals still have a Christmas treat in store Editor: So the remaining Liberals have killed the income tax cut Mr. Campbell promised us.

Just say no to buying Vancouver Biennale art Editor: Re: “Art acquisition splits council,” Nov. 25.

No sane person would consider throwing money away in such a reckless manner. Gordon R. Heck Richmond

letters Unfair attack on MLA Bennett Editor: Re: “He’s not the real Bill Bennett,” B.C. Views, Nov. 25. Tom Fletcher’s hatchet job on Independent MLA Bill Bennett has no basis in reality. I am the past president of the Kootenay East B.C. Liberal Constituency Association and have worked on all three of Bill Bennett’s successful election campaigns. Fletcher obviously didn’t bother researching the 2009 election results. Bennett won not with a “slim margin” but with a 51 per cent margin, higher than some candidates in the Fraser Valley, plus he defeated

the leader of the B.C. Conservative Party. And before he reluctantly took this job on 10 years ago, this was a solid NDP riding. As for “parliamentary tradition,” Fletcher ought to know that tradition supports the concept that premiers are first among equals, not kings among subjects. Bennett is in public life for all the right reasons. We ought to know. He lives in our community and is our neighbour and friend. Bennett has always had the courage of his convictions and this latest speaking out is what we expect from him. We didn’t hire him to be a

lemming. We agree with our MLA that Premier Gordon Campbell has done many good things for B.C., but he’s stayed too long and was jeopardizing the survival of the B.C. Liberal Party. As for Bennett’s comments about Mr. Campbell’s style of leadership, we support our MLA’s right to say publicly what he has learned to be the truth. The fact his colleagues are silent is more of a reflection on them than on Bill Bennett. Jim Fennell Past President Kootenay East B.C. Liberal Constituency Association Cranbrook

Memories shared at Walter Lee Elementary’s 50th anniversary party Editor: Walter Lee Elementary School’s 50th anniversary was celebrated in fine form last Friday evening. Thanks to the support of The Richmond Review newspaper, which publicized the event on the front page, there was a wonderful turnout. The school staff members and students thank all who came to celebrate with us. In par-

ticular we thank: board of education trustees Rod Belleza and Grace Tsang; Walter Lee’s first principal, Joe Eso, who was appointed in 1967 when Lee ceased to be an annex of Whiteside Elementary; Starr Rempel, who was a Grade 1 student in 1960; Pat Walach, the educator who created the time capsule in honour of the school’s 25th anniversa-

Richmond Hospital stay a comfortable one Editor: A few weeks ago I had occasion to avail myself of the emergency services of Richmond Hospital. Staff were very quick to address my immediate concern, which was severe pain. I was impressed by emergency

room staff at how quickly they attended to various needs of patients, including a code blue event. It must be a thankless task to decide on how many staff are required at any given time. How quick we are to criticize

when it’s not enough or when it appears there are more than are needed. My sincere thanks to all who made my short stay as comfortable as they possibly could. John Pedersen Richmond

It’s time for government to work for all people Editor: An open letter to Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap. We are writing to you as a request for all people on disability assistance. As it stands now, a single person is entitled to earn up to $500 and a couple is entitled to earn up to $750 per month which is an earning exemption, and is great. However for those of us who are not able to work, we feel that a change must be made. There are those of us who may receive a financial gift or in our case a small inheritance, which is paid out monthly far below the $750. However we must declare this as a non earned income which in turn the ministry deducts this amount dollar for dollar from our monthly

ry; Bob Mann, who presented a plaque to the school on behalf of the parent advisory council; and commanding officer Gary Gratrix of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets 609 Steveston, who brought 10 members of his squadron along to greet guests. Norma Bryant Principal Walter Lee Elementary School

cheque. We want the legislation to be revamped in a way that will allow all income earned and not earned to be exempt if under the allowed amount. It is unfair and in our case the government is taking away something that was left to us as a final wish. It is disrespectful to the dead. Please bring this very important issue up in Parliament as the legislation is outdated. We did not ask to be disabled and feel the time has come to be treated fairly. It is time for this government to work for all people, not just the working wealthy. Frances & Kevin Ham Richmond

Hanukkah just around the corner


he month of December means the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah is around the corner. Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, commemorates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem after its desecration by the Greek Syrians. Around 160 BC, Judah Maccabee led a successful

revolt against the Syrian king in response to his attempts to wipe out the Jewish faith. One element of the Syrian strategy was to change the Holy Temple of Jerusalem into a Greek temple, but the Jews reclaimed the temple and cleansed it in preparation for its rededication. However, there was very little oil remaining to light the

of Hanukkah are observed by placing and lighting one candle in the menorah, which holds eight candles—one for each day of the miracle—and a ninth candle called the shamash (meaning “helper� or “servant�) that is used to light the other candles. Two candles are then lit on the second night and so on until the eighth night.

This is considered to be the origin of the eight-day celebration of Hanukkah. Starting on the evening of the 25th day of the Hebrew month Kislev, the eight days

over the Greeks, who wanted the Jews to give up their culture and faith. The tradition of giving and receiving gifts is now also one of the traditions of Hanukkah. Originally, Jews gave monetary presents to teach children about sharing and in Israel that sentiment remains. Parents often give their children “gelt,� which are coin-shaped chocolates wrapped in gold foil. Potato latkes and jelly doughnuts are the holiday’s signature foods should you be invited to a Hanukkah celebration. The goal of the giver should be to provide a sweet thought as opposed to a fancy or expensive gift.

hether you’re preparing for a casual family gathering, a fancy dinner party or a high-spirited hoe down for 100, planning a party—particularly during the holiday season—is a big job. Here are 10 tried-and-true tips for planning memorable holiday gatherings that will let you minimize the stress and maximize the fun.

• Plan early and plan often. There’s nothing more frustrating than finding out that your intended party guests have other plans. December weekends

don’t be afraid to serve up Aunt Lydia’s legendary potato latkes. • Serve up festive beverages. Make sure that there is a merry mix of beverages for those guests who don’t drink or those who have had enough. A non-alcoholic punch or a pot of hot-spiced cider is always popular and can be served with rum on the side for guests who want a little something extra. • Set the scene. While some hosts like to go all out in the decorating department, others prefer a more low-key approach. Either way, make an effort to create a pleasing ambiance that appeals to the senses. Put out an assortment of candles. Put up a pot of simmering water flavoured with cinnamon, cloves and allspice to fill your house with a heartwarming aroma. Put in your favourite holiday tunes. Bask in the glow

tend to get booked up early, so it’s a good idea to send or e-mail invitations as early as possible. Another possibility is to schedule your gathering for a time when people tend to be less busy, such as the last night of Hanukkah. • Design a realistic menu. If you plan on enjoying your own party, it pays to have a menu that includes a number of items that can be made ahead of time and then heated or plated just before your guests arrive. While it’s always fun to try out new recipes when entertaining, it’s best to experiment with only a few items on your menu—and to leave enough time for substitutes if you’re disappointed with the results. • Embrace tradition. During the holiday season, many people warm to the idea of timehonoured traditions, so

of your guests’ delight. • Keep kids happy. When planning a gathering for guests of all ages, it’s helpful to have activities on hand for the younger crowd. Set aside a space for kids and set out a variety of toys and games that will keep them occupied and engaged. • Get help. When hosting a large party with guests who may not know each other, it’s important to be on hand to make introductions and keep the conversation flowing. If you’re planning on joining the party once your guests arrive, consider hiring one or more helpers to serve and clean up. • End on a positive note. Your responsibilities as a host don’t end when your guests say good night. Make sure it’s a good night for all by arranging for designated drivers who can see that your friends in need get home safely.

Christmas in Steveston Operation Red Nose gets Christmas revellers home safe Local operation run by dedicated volunteers by Kristine Salzmann Black Press

“Last year somebody picked up someone in their early 20s who

had been responsible enough to call Operation Red Nose,” recalls organizer Carlene Lewall. “She gave the volunteers a tip. And then her parents came out to thank us again for getting their daughter home safely and tipped us again.” Another year a volunteer came back with a slab of smoked salmon. Regardless of the response, volunteers are always thankful people make the responsible choice and do not drive home after enjoying a

Operation Red Nose is a free, volunteerrun designated driver service where motorists can call a dispatch centre to have a team of three—an escort driver, designated driver for the caller’s own vehicle and a navigator—meet them for a safe ride home.

season. This year Lewall expects even more calls to their hotline due to the new, harsher impaired driving penalties introduced by the provincial government earlier this fall. “We’ve had a lot more inquiries from company Christmas parties and people hosting house parties,” she says. Operation Red Nose operates in communities south of the Fraser River as far east as Chilliwack. That means if you need to get home in Delta or Richmond but are outside of Delta/Richmond’s boundaries, another Red Nose group can pick you up and arrange a transfer. The group does not operate in Vancouver. Lewall recommends parking your car at the Canada Line if you’re headed for Vancouver so a team can meet you later in Richmond. Money raised from sponsorship and tips goes to the Delta Gymnastics Society. Lewall, the gymnastics society’s director of marketing and fundraising, said last year the local ride program raised about $30,000, which went towards the new Delta Sport Development Centre currently under construction in Ladner. Operation Red Nose Delta/Richmond has been run by the Delta Gymnastics Society for the past nine years. “It’s a lot of work and a lot of people say, is it really worth it?” says Lewall. “I think it’s really worth it because it’s a double whammy—we’re doing something for the community, we’re not just out there asking.” Operation Red Nose runs Nov. 26, 27, Dec. 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18 and New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31), 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. Call 604943-0460 or 1-877-604NOSE.

Christmas in Steveston Avoid crowds by shopping smart John Andresen photo Avoiding the biggest shopping crowds is often the goal of many holiday shoppers.


hristmas shopping. Some love it and some hate it. Regardless, it’s expected that crowds will be part of the equation at some point during the holiday season. Avoiding the biggest crowds is often the goal of many holiday shoppers. Today most shoppers are looking to save time or money— or both. They often wonder what are the best times to shop to realize the best deals and avoid the crowds. Shoppers who want to avoid crowds as a main priority will want to shop weekday mornings. If it is possible to take off a day in December to set aside for shopping, one should consider it. Just avoid the hours of 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. People who are at work may spend their lunch hours catching up on shopping. While weekday shopping may not offer the sales that take place on the weekends, the stores will certainly be less crowded. Shoppers who know they will be giving gifts after the Christmas holiday, be it to distant relatives or faraway friends, can take advantage of shopping after Dec. 25. This can be a great opportunity to save a lot of money on purchases, as many items are deeply discounted after Christmas. Keep in mind, though, that crowds still may be large because of people making returns or cashing in on gift cards.

Every weekday, volunteers deliver nutritious meals to clients’ homes, visit with them briefly and provide an informal check on their safety. Without the generosity and dedication of our volunteers, we would not be able to sustain this invaluable program for seniors in our community. Those interested in volunteering can call Shirley Park at 604-733-6614. The Chinese Meals on Wheels program is operated by the Health and Home Care Society of BC, an independent notfor-profit organization, and has been operating the Vancouver and Richmond Meals on Wheels programs since 1967.

Company fosters new vocal talent Seven singers to perform Wednesday at Minoru Chapel by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter There’s no shortage of young people who want to pursue classical singing, but finding venues to perform can be a challenge, says University of B.C. opera coach David Boothroyd. “We’re always looking for more places for the people to sing, and especially when they’re branching out into getting paid for singing,” he says. Burnaby Lyric Opera was created in the early ‘80s with the goal of giving upand-coming opera singers in B.C. the chance to take on lead roles in fullystaged productions. The company will perform a sold-out show Wednesday, Dec. 1 at Minoru Chapel under Boothroyd’s musical direction. It is the third and final show of the season in the Minoru Chapel Opera Nights series, following successful performances by Opera Pro Cantani and City Opera Vancouver.

Burnaby Lyric Opera performs Mozart’s ‘Così fan tutte’ last season.

While there will be no costumes or elaborate sets, the show still gives the emerging professional singers a chance to try new roles and strengthen their resumes, Boothroyd said. Seven singers, ranging in age from 21 to 34, will perform Wednesday. Boothroyd will provide piano accompaniment and Dr.


Charles Barber, of City Opera Vancouver, will narrate. The show will be a “potpourri” of highlights from Burnaby Lyric Opera’s upcoming full-scale production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. It will also feature snippets from the company’s Sunday Afternoon Concert Series including Auber’s Manon Lescaut, Massanet’s Thais, Dvorák’s Rusalka, and Weber’s Der Freischütz. All songs will be performed in the original language. “We have some really, really charming music— some of it I had never heard before, in fact,” said Boothroyd, who has

worked in opera for 35 years. A piece from Rusalka— the story of the Little Mermaid—will open Wednesday’s performance. “The opera begins with three wood nymphs, just having fun, so we’re going to begin our concert with this trio of three wood nymphs,” said Boothroyd. “It’s just a delightful piece of music. We were all thrilled to discover it because none of us had ever heard it before.” The audience will hear other lesser-known numbers, as well as Rusalka’s most famous aria, “Song to the Moon,” and the popular Don Giovanni duet “Là ci darem la mano.”

As the only public French school in Richmond, l’Ecole des Navigateurs aims to promote not only the French language but also the many Francophone cultures. Last year’s event attracted more than 200 people and organizers are hoping to welcome even more people this year. The fee for gingerbread decorating is $5 per child. All proceeds go to the school’s parent advisory council. The school is located at 8580 Kilgour Pl.

Sockeyes win statement game Team’s character apparent in comeback win over Delta by Don Fennell Sports Editor Championship teams aren’t always the most talented. But it’s almost a certainty they have heart. Richmond Sockeyes displayed what it takes in a 5-3 comeback victory over the Delta Ice Hawks in Pacific International Junior Hockey League play Thursday at Minoru Arena. “It was a huge win, probably our biggest of the season,” said Sockeyes’ forward Brayden Low. Low, who epitomizes his team’s hard-working nature, said the players took it upon themselves to come back after trailing 2-0 and 3-1. “We really kicked it up in the second and third, focusing on putting pucks to the net and going hard at it. When you do that good things happen.” The victory lifts the Sockeyes (18-3-3) to within a point of first-place Delta (19-4-2)—with a game in hand—in the Tom Shaw Conference. The much-hyped tilt featuring the league’s top two teams perhaps even surpassed expectations. Fans were treated to a

wide open game that had plenty of scoring chances and good goaltending. Although the Sockeyes arguably had the territorial edge in play, the Hawks were opportunistic. “It was a good measuring stick for us,” agreed Richmond head coach Judd Lambert. “(Delta) is a good hockey team—experienced, talented and well coached.” Lambert said the Sockeyes ultimately won the tug of war through perseverance and determination. “My philosophy is that it shouldn’t matter who you’re playing or what the score is,” he said. “You try to play the way you play. Fortunately, we’ve got a good group of guys who hopefully work (hard) every shift. We’re not a one, or twoline team, but we’ve got four lines that contribute on different nights.” Rookie James Davison was scheduled to start in goal for the Sockeyes, but took a puck to the throat. Devin Nijjer was pressed into service as a result. •Sockeyes’ next game is Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at Minoru Arena versus the Abbotsford Pilots.

Locals lead lacrosse selects in Baltimore Players participate in elite tournament, tour Washington and New York The Burnaby Mountain Selects’ senior and sophomore teams sported a distinct Richmond look during the recent Ultimate Performance Lacrosse Shootout in Baltimore. Quinton Bradley, Wade Galbraith and Tyler Nett suited up for the seniors, which went 4-2, outscoring teams from Maryland 5-3, North Carolina 11-3, Tennessee 8-3 and Washington, D.C. 10-2. Their losses were 7-4 to a team from New York and 8-7 to another from Maryland. Overall, they outscored their opponents 46-26. Brad Hofmann, Evan Hunt and Jonah Sahota played for sophomore squad, which went 2-4. Their wins were over De-

Math from Maryland 7-5 and the NoVa Tribe from Virginia 12-3. The sophomores scored 38 goals while allowing 49. The Selects were coached by Simon Fraser University men’s lacrosse co-head coaches Jeff Cathrea and Brent Hoskins. The top-rated recruitment showcase tournament featured over 100 teams in two divisions, competing in a round-robin format in front of more than 165 college coaches. ESPN Rise was on hand at two of the tournament’s four venues during opening-day play, and offered their take on 35 players that caught their eye including three players from the senior Se-

lects including Matthew McNair Secondary student Bradley and Hugh Boyd Secondary student Nett. While in Baltimore, the Selects travelled to Washington, D.C. to tour the prestigious Georgetown University where they met with Hoyas men’s lacrosse assistant coach Matt Rienzo. The oldest Catholic University in the United States (established 1789), the Selects also took time to walk the historic campus, including stops at Harbin Field, home field of the men’s lacrosse team; McDonough Gymnasium, where future NBA all-stars Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning and Dikembe Mutombo

played their college basketball; and the Rafik B. Hariri Building, the new home of Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business. They continued their day in the nation’s capital with a trip to the National Mall in downtown Washington, including a visit to the White House and stops at the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, The Capitol and Union Station. After the tournament, the Selects spent a day in New York, touring Manhattan and visiting Empire State landmarks: Times Square, Battery Park, Ground Zero and Trump Tower. Prior to arriving in Manhattan, the Selects made

a stop in the Bronx to tour the new Yankee Stadium and get an exclusive look at “The House that George Built” including visits to Monument Park, the New York Yankees Museum, the press box, and access to the Batter’s Eye Seats in centre field.

A focal point of the Georgetown’s coaching staff was the importance of academics in the college recruitment process. Cathrea and Hoskins also place a great deal of emphasis on academics and their teams have become well known for excelling both in the classroom

and on the field. In addition to playing six games each, and touring some of America’s most well-known sites and attractions, the Selects also completed three hours of study hall over the course of the weekend to keep up with their assigned school work.

seventh in average points per game (15.8). The 6’5” rookie guard from J.N. Burnett can play several positions on the floor, which helped him earn a starting role at Langara. Mason was instrumental in Langara’s two win

Something’s got to give this Sunday. The Langley Mustangs and North Surrey Tigers — who both posted perfect 10-0 regular seasons — will clash in the Vancouver Mainland Football League bantam championship game at Richmond’s Minoru Park.

The Mustangs booked their ticket to the championship final thanks to an impressive 27-14 win over the South Delta Rams last weekend. The Rams entered the game averaging nearly 30 points per game, but were stymied for the better part of the semifinal.

Heat of the moment The action was fast and furious most of the night Thursday, as the Richmond Sockeyes outscored the Delta Ice Hawks 5-3 in a memorable game between the league’s top two teams. Clockwise from right: Delta’s Dominic Toigo attempts to block a shot by Sockeye Jessie Siemens; Sockeye Eli Wiebe picks up a head of steam as he takes the puck from his own end of the rink; and the teams jockey for position in front of the Delta net.

Volleyball Centre of Excellence exceeding expectations by Don Fennell Sports Editor






$ 00






The idea of a centre to assist in skill development was a novel idea when it was proposed, but one the typically open-minded volleyball community embraced. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken only four months for their faith to be rewarded, as the Volleyball Centre of Excellence at the Richmond Olympic Oval has surpassed even the most optimistic expectations. The daytime volleyball program is proving particularly popular, allowing students from throughout the Lower Mainland to participate.


â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a unique program,â&#x20AC;? said Shane Donen, CEO for the PaciďŹ c Volleyball Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It offers student athletes a world-class facility to train in without leaving their school.â&#x20AC;? Dawna Sales, co-ordinator for the Volleyball Centre of Excellence, is excited by what the program offers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we started this program it was something that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been done before,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we knew we had the best facility and the right coach (former University of B.C. star Joanne Ross is the head coach) and it was just a matter of the parents and athletes saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah, this what we need.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Several schools, such as Richmond Christian and North Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Argyle Secondary, have already embraced the program. Sales encourages others to follow suit. Argyle senior girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach Kelly Mahannah has two players on her team who regularly attend the daytime program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have really noticed

a change in the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; skill level,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The high coach to player ratio is a real beneďŹ t.â&#x20AC;? The Rick Hansen Foundation has played an instrumental role in helping the centre of excellence become a reality, said Sales. She noted the foundation was involved in the process from the early discussion phase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody had to have a really open mind, including traditional volleyball systems, to say we could do something different,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately, volleyball is an open sport and our athletes can work with up to eight to 10 different coaches in a course of a season. The athletes are encouraged to participate in other programs.â&#x20AC;? Volleyball is also unique in that it is a latedeveloping sport. Unlike hockey or soccer, which are mostly communitybased programs and athletes begin playing at four and ďŹ ve years old, most volleyball players are 12 or 13 before theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re introduced to their sport in elementary school.

While overspending might be a holiday tradition in many families, it's no doubt the most costly as well. Credit cards often allow shoppers to overspend on holiday shopping, making January a cringe-worthy month for shoppers who put too much on plastic during the holidays and get the bills the next month. It's always best to avoid overspending, but there are ways shoppers can extend their budget during the holiday seasons. • Shop early. Shopping early

not only gives shoppers access to more and sometimes better deals, but it also allows shoppers to spread out their spending over a period of several months instead of a few weeks. For example, instead of spending $500 in the weeks leading up to Chanukah or Christmas, holiday shoppers who start early might be able to afford a holiday budget of $600 to 700. Shopping early gives shoppers the opportunity to spread out their spending, which can also allow for a little more budget-

ary leeway as a result. • Look for "no interest" deals. "No interest" deals are not necessarily hard to find, but they might be a bit of a misnomer. Larger retailers sometimes offer no interest financing for 12 or 18 months on items that cost above a certain dollar amount. But these deals are only "interest free" for the designated time frame. This means no interest will be charged if the balance is paid in full (there's often a minimum monthly payment)

before the 12 or 18 months is up. However, if the balance is not paid in full, shoppers will be responsible for all interest that accrued over that 12- or 18-month period. These "no interest" deals are a great way to extend a holiday budget, but shoppers should make certain they pay the balance off before the grace period is up. • Go in on gifts with a friend or relative. When holiday shopping, it's perfectly reasonable to share the cost of a gift with a friend or relative. The recipient won't mind if the gift is from one, two, three, or four people, and each gifter will

come away satisfied that their loved one got a gift he or she loves and no one's budget was busted. • Comparison shop. As sensible as it seems, many shoppers find little time to comparison shop during the often hectic holiday season. Shoppers looking to extend their budgets, however, should find the time to comparison shop. Significant savings could be had simply by scanning the different flyers in the Sunday newspaper. Such efforts only take minutes but could save shoppers hundreds of dollars during the holiday season.

Easy Ways to Extend Your Holiday Budget he holiday season can prove an exercise in financial flexibility for many families. While the spirit of the season centers around faith and family, it's easy for families to overdo it when it comes to holiday shopping. Parents can easily find themselves expanding their budgets to ensure their kids get everything on their wish list, while fellow shoppers may easily get lost in finding the perfect gift for family and friends.
