Giant plant
that can burn
skin found on
Sea Island
by Bhreandáin Clugston
Editor
It’s 15 feet tall and can burn you or
blind you.
While sounding much like a threat
from a science fiction story, giant hog-
weeds are in fact real and have been
sighted in Richmond.
The plant has photosensitive tox-
ins in its sap which can badly burn
and blister skin and if it gets in your
eyes, it could cause temporary or per-
manent vision problems. The sap is
found in the plant’s stem, hairs and
leaves. There have been cases of peo-
ple being hospitalized due to injuries
caused by this coming in contact with
the plant.
“Because of giant hogweed’s ability
to grow in moist areas such as Brit-
ish Columbia’s many lakes, rivers,
wetlands, valley bottoms, and coastal
regions, and its toxicity to humans,
domestics and wildlife, its spread is a
major concern for the Invasive Plant
Council of B.C.” said council chair Kristy
Palmantier.
The hogweed has been found be-
tween the Flight Path Park and the Sea
Island Fire Hall in Burkeville, where
crews are currently working on remov-
ing it. The city is currently investigating
other potential sightings.
The giant plant can grow as high as
15 feet and has leaves as large as five
feet across. It has dark reddish-purple
blotches on its stalks. It produces white
clusters of umbrella-like flowers and
thrives near streams, creeks, ditches,
roads and in vacant lots. A single giant
hogweed plant can produce 100,000
winged seeds, crowding out native
plants and dominating moist areas.
According to the city, hogweed can
easily be confused with other native
plants such as Cow Parsnip or Queen
Anne’s Lace, which also have umbrella-
like flowers, but are smaller and do not
pose similar health risks.
If residents suspect they see giant
hogweed on city property, they are urged
to call the city’s invasive plant hotline at
604-276-4316. When calling, please give
the specific location of the plant.
If possible take a picture of the plant
and email it to invasiveplants@rich-
mond.ca.
City staff will visit the location, and if it
is positively identified as hogweed, the
area will be fenced off and marked as a
hazardous plant management site.
If residents suspect giant hogweed
on private property, they can call
the Invasive Plant Council of B.C. at
1-800-WEEDSBC. Residents should not
remove the plant themselves, rather
hire a professional who will take the
appropriate precautions needed when
exposed to hogweed.

Police
officer OK
after being
clipped by
passing
vehicle
by Bhreandain Clugston
Editor
An RCMP officer was struck
by a car on Tuesday.
The incident occurred on July
20, when the police officer
was walking back to his police
car after pulling over a vehicle
in near Westminster Highway
and Garden City Road.
The officer was forced to
jump as an oncoming vehicle
came towards him. The officer
wasn’t able to completely get
out of the way and was struck
in his holster by the vehicle’s
side mirror.
The officer was not injured.
A witness on scene stated
that the oncoming vehicle
drove extremely close to the
police car, police say.
The offending vehicle was
consequently pulled over at
which time the 59-year-old
driver stated that she did not
see the officer or the marked
police car with its emergency
lights flashing pulled over to
the side of the road. The driver
was issued a violation ticket
under the Motor Vehicle Act.
Richmond RCMP would like
to remind the public of the
“Slow Down Pull Over” road
safety campaign that was
launched in June 2009 after
an officer was struck by a
passing motorist while con-
ducting a traffic stop.
Current legislation requires
that when approaching an
emergency vehicle that has
its emergency lights flashing,
drivers must slow to 70 km/h
on highways where the speed
limit is 80 km/h or higher and
40 km/h where the speed lim-
it is below 80 km/h. If there
is another lane going in the
same direction, drivers must
move into the other lane if it
is safe to do so.
These rules apply to driv-
ers when passing police, fire,
ambulance amd tow trucks,
as well as vehicles used by
commercial vehicle safety
and enforcement personnel,
passenger vehicle inspectors,
conservation officers, park
rangers, and special provin-
cial constables employed
in the Ministry of Forests &
Range. The fine for not adher-
ing to these rules consists of
three penalty points and a
fine of $148.
“In this instance there was
no traffic surrounding the of-
fending vehicle which would
have prevented the driver
from changing lanes,” Cpl.
Sherrdean Turley said. “The
officer is very lucky that he
wasn’t seriously injured.”
Mayor said it sounds
‘horrendous,’ but
impact is ‘very, very,
very small’

A weak endorsement of controversial waste-
to-energy incinerators has set up a showdown
next Friday with a Richmond councillor on the
front lines.
In a 7-5 vote Wednesday, Metro Vancouver’s
waste management committee backed a plan
to build a $470-million incinerator to burn
up to 500,000 tonnes of trash each year that
isn’t—or can’t be—recycled. The incinerator is
part of the proposed Integrated Solid Waste
and Resource Management Plan that will go to
the Metro Vancouver board table July 30 for a
final vote.
The vote came after a long and contentious
public process, where the public overwhelm-
ingly supported ideas to reduce and recycle
garbage.
Coun. Harold Steves, Richmond’s representa-
tive on the committee, has long advocated the
region move to a zero-waste strategy by ramp-
ing up recycling programs or banning plastics
that simply can’t be recycled.
“If we put a half a billion dollars into trash
incinerators, we will have no money for the
alternatives,” said Steves, after casting his no
vote. “The board is like 34 ostriches with their
heads in the sand and their butts in the air.”
Steves said the board had a similar debate
two decades ago over shipping garbage to
Cache Creek—and recycling programs were
pushed to the side.
“To feed this incinerator, you must continue to
produce garbage,” said Steves.
Steves said the incinerator plan will lead
to a buildup of particulate in the valley and
boost greenhouse gases. Even if the garbage
was shipped out of the region and inciner-
ated elsewhere in B.C.—a hope of some board
members—increased greenhouse gases would
still be the result, he said.
“We have agreed in Richmond to reduce
greenhouse gases by 33 per cent. This will
increase the greenhouse gases in the region by
six per cent.”
Mayor Malcolm Brodie, Richmond’s other
representative on the Metro board, is likely to
support the plan. Incinerating garbage is just
one of the plan’s objectives, he said, noting
reducing waste is also key.
“It’s not an either/or situation,” he said.
“We’re going to do both.”
Brodie said despite people’s best efforts to
reduce, reuse and recycle, garbage will still
exist—especially given the growth of the
region.
In May, Richmond city council also endorsed
the plan in a 6-3 vote, with councillors Steves,
Linda Barnes and Sue Halsey-Brandt opposed.
Brodie, along with councillors Derek Dang,
Evelina Halsey-Brandt, Greg Halsey-Brandt, Ken
Johnston and Bill McNulty, voted in favour.
“It sounds like a very negative solution,”
added Brodie. “It harkens our thoughts back
to the days of the beehive burners and other
mass incineration options which caused a huge
amount of pollution.”
But the impact to the air shed of the region’s
existing incinerator in Burnaby and any new
incinerator is “very, very, very small” and far
less damaging than the impact of vehicles and
open burning that’s allowed in the valley, said
Brodie.
“So while it sounds horrendous, what I’ve
been told about the science is that the science
does not support that.”
Even if the board approves the plan, the pro-
vincial government must give final approval.
B.C. Minister of Environment Barry Penner
has the option of approving it, amending it
and approving it, or sending it back to the
board with recommended changes.

Bridging
religion
Tour to provide awareness on
Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism
by Jessica Tieszen
Contributor
A Richmond group wanting to provide more under-
standing and awareness about different religions doesn’t
have to go too far to look.
The Richmond Multicultural Concerns Society is host-
ing an Inter-Faith Bridging Project to provide awareness
on Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism on Wednesday, July
28. It takes place on Richmond’s Highway to Heaven, a
stretch of No. 5 Road dominated by temples, mosques
and churches.
Because the sites are close together, it will be a walk-
ing tour.
The tour begins at 6 p.m. and will explore the different
temples and mosques of these major religions, free of
charge.
A vegetarian meal provided by the Gurwara Nanak
Niwas will be served to guests at the India Cultural
Centre of Canada on 8600 No. 5 Road.
Following the meal will be a guided tour of the Sikh
temple, then next door to Az-Zahraa Islamic Centre
Islamic Centre followed by the Vedic Cultural Hindu
Temple.
The tour is scheduled to conclude at 9 p.m.
“With funding from Embrace B.C., the Richmond
Multicultural Concerns Society is working to create
understanding in all three religions,” says organizer
Balwant Sanghera. “This is an effort to reach out to the
community and promote intercultural harmony.”
A panel discussion on Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. will conclude
the Inter-Faith Bridging Project with an in depth reli-
gious discussion. Many significant topics will be covered
including the role of women in these religions, as well as
violence and terrorism. Location is to be determined.
For information and registration contact the Richmond
Multicultural Concerns Society at 604-279-7160 or email

“People just can’t seem to get enough of it and have
turned visiting the market into a family outing,” says
manager Paula Morimoto. “The community has been
extremely supportive.”
Meanwhile, a different type of market has also been
drawing huge crowds this summer.
The Richmond Summer Night Market with new and
improved renovations has attracted an average of 25,000
visitors a night.
“We have expanded the diversity of the market this
year,” says director of operations Paul Cheung. “We are
attracting more people than ever before.”

hours have been extended from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday,
Saturday and holiday Sundays and 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. on
Sundays and holiday Mondays.
The night market features live entertainment, food
vendors and goods.

Coun. Harold Steves wants city staff
to look deeper into the cause of higher
salt levels in the Fraser River.
He doesn’t believe a rising ocean
is to blame, but a lack of rainfall and
low snowpack resulting in less fresh
water flowing over a heavier wedge of
saltwater.
“That allows the saltwater to come up
to ocean-level heights, which means it
rises in the river dramatically more
than just the ocean rise,” he said.
To aid farmers, the city has equipped
one of its pump stations with a salinity
meter, which shuts off flow from the
Fraser when salt content is too high.
Farmers can also irrigate fields with
drinking water, but they aren’t offered
a discount on water—unlike Delta—
making it an expensive alternative.
High salt levels can devastate crops.

A trio of road-widening proj-
ects worth $13.2 million are
getting support from civic poli-
ticians.
With the promise of cash
from the federal government,
TransLink and Port Metro
Vancouver, a city council com-
mittee Wednesday endorsed
the East Richmond projects,
which would tie in with a new
Highway 91 interchange.
“All three proposed projects
would benefit the economic
development of the city by com-
plementing and enhancing the
operation of the planned Nelson
Road-Highway 91 interchange,
facilitating goods movement
and supporting the growth of
local businesses engaged in
Asia-Pacific trade,” said a staff
report.
The projects include the wid-
ening of Westminster Highway
from Nelson Road to McMillan
Way to four lanes from the
current two. Nelson Road
would also be widened to four
lanes from Blundell Road to
Westminster Highway.
A third project involves wid-
ening northbound No. 6 Road,
from Wireless Way to Highway
91, to two lanes from one.
The city would be on the hook
for a total of $3.9 million. The
projects must be complete by
2014 to qualify for the federal
cash.
The Nelson Road-Highway 91
interchange is currently under
construction and will offer trucks
an access point to the highway
at its so-called “S-curve.”

Salty Fraser causing concern
by Jessica Tieszen
Contributor
Golfers got together at
Greenacres Golf Course
on Wednesday to contin-
ue a young man’s legacy
in fighting cancer.
In 2001, 16-year-old
Michael Cuccione passed
away after years of bat-
tling cancer.
Michael was diagnosed
with Hodgkin’s disease in
1994.
Spending a number of
years in the hospital, see-
ing other children affect-
ed by cancer and leuke-
mia, Michael decided he
was going to raise funds
to benefit researchers for
B.C. Children’s Hospital.
Michael began writ-
ing inspirational songs,
which he recorded on an
album called “Making A
Difference.” By the age
of 11, Michael had raised
$130,000 to impact and
save children’s lives.
When Michael passed
away, the Michael
Cuccione Foundation was
started in his honour.
“As a family we saw how
dedicated Michael was
and how important all
this was to him,” says his
mother Grace Cuccione.
“We made a decision to
move forward and con-
tinue Michael’s legacy
and dream of saving chil-
dren’s lives.”
This year marked the
ninth annual Golf for
a Cure Fundraiser at
Greenacres Golf Course in
Richmond. The event rais-
es money for Cuccione
Laboratories in the B.C.
Children’s Hospital to
support the Childhood
Research Centre.
The event has been sold
out every year with 144
golfers, 22 volunteers and
38 corporate sponsors.
The fundraiser contin-
ues to grow and raises
around $60,000 each
year.
The family has raised
$7 million in the past 15
years through various
fundraising activities,
which has all gone back
to designated areas of
research.
“Before the Michael
Cuccione donation came
through, hospitals were
having poor childhood
leukemia results,” says
father Domenic Cuccione.
“It has since improved to
an 85 per cent survival
rate.”
To donate or learn
more about The Michael
Cuccione Foundation visit

Richmond, the Sports Hosting Capital of BC
By Ken Johnston
Richmond is
quickly becoming
the sports hosting
capital of British
Columbia.
Hosting the
speed skating
competition for
the 2010 Olympic
Winter Games put us on the
international map. But it’s the day-
to-day efforts of our local sports
organizations, volunteers, the
City, Tourism Richmond and other
partners that have put us at the
front of the pack.
In the past year alone, we have
hosted such events as the 2009 BC
Seniors Games (the largest sporting
event ever held in Richmond,
with almost 4,000 participants),
the national under-16 boys soccer
championships, the Canadian
Wheelchair Rugby Championships
and numerous other regional,
provincial, national and international
level sports events.
Just this month, we opened a
new lawn bowling surface that
will help Richmond attract top
level tournaments in that sport.
The Canadian Open badminton
championships, the biggest cash
tournament ever held in Canada,
just wrapped up at the Richmond
Olympic Oval. Looking forward, the
Oval will host the World Wheelchair
Rugby Championships and Canadian
taekwon-do championships this fall.
Throughout the city, our local
community sport organizations
continue to build on Richmond’s
reputation as an outstanding
host from annual events like the
Richmond International Midget
Hockey tournament to the recent
2010 Provincial Cup girls soccer
championships.
I had the opportunity to coordinate
the soccer competition at the
BC Seniors Games and referee in
the Girls Provincial Cup and Boys
nationals and the volunteers and
City Parks staff did us proud. This
community is rich in pride and
community spirit because of groups
like Richmond Youth Soccer. At the
tournament last week I overheard a
group of parents from the Comox
Valley saying: “This is the best
organized tournament that we have
been to.”
Sport hosting helps increase
tourism spending and generates
funding from senior governments
to help build and operate our
community sports facilities. It gives
our youth, adult and senior athletes
opportunities to compete at a high
level on their home turf and enjoy
all the benefits that come from sport
and physical activity.
We are currently developing
a comprehensive Sport Hosting
strategy, which will build on our
success in attracting events. Tourism
Richmond has provided the City
with $500,000 in funding to support
this initiative. One of the first
outcomes is establishing a new
grant program to assist local sports
organizations and others to attract
and stage major tournaments and
championship level sporting events.
The program is available through
Richmond’s new Sport Hosting
office. From event bidding, planning
and staging advice to coordinating
partnerships, the Sport Hosting
office delivers one stop service
for local sports groups. For
more information on the Sport
Hosting office and grant visit
www.richmond.ca/sporthosting.

giant
hogweed
From Page 1
Anyone who has direct
contact with hogweed
sap should wash the af-
fected area immediately
with mild soap and cool
water, keep exposed skin
out of sunlight for at least
48 hours, and seek imme-
diate medical attention if
blistering occurs.
The B.C. Drug and Poi-
son Information Centre
24 hour Hotline can also
be called for more advice
at 604-682-5050 in the
Lower Mainland Area or
toll free at 1-800-567-
8911. A Work Safe BC
information bulletin on
giant hogweed is also
available at www.work-
safebc.com.
Originally found in Asia
and Europe, giant hog-
weed was first brought
over to Canada as an
ornamental plant in the
early 1900s. According to
the Invasive Plant Council
of B.C., it is now present
in B.C., Ontario, Quebec,
Nova Scotia, and New-
foundland, as well as a
number of U.S. states.
For a detailed descrip-
tion and tips for identi-
fying the plant, visit the
Greater Vancouver Inva-
sive Plants Council web-
site at www.gvipc.ca.
S
haring food in
a communal
setting has
been a time hon-
oured tradition for
hundreds of years.
The word “potluck”
triggers an immedi-
ate response from
most people I know
—which is lots of
delicious food.
Especially at this
time of year.
When I was very
involved in the heri-
tage community 15
years ago we used to
do wonderful potlucks
at Britannia Heritage
Shipyard. Salmon was
a favourite plus other
in-season seafood,
chowders, steaming
pots of chili, salads,
breads, fruit pies
and cakes. There
was always so much
food that there would
be leftovers to take
home.
My enjoyment of
potlucks has shifted in
recent years to what
we love to do in the
way of informal gath-
erings at the Sharing
Farm. We did a lunch
one not so long ago
and this week we had
a potluck supper in
the healing garden
with a splendid array
of “summertime” food
laid out on a weath-
ered, yellow cedar
planked table.
What’s different
though than the ones
I used to participate
in on the Steveston
waterfront is that
most of my farm and
food security friends
are vegetarians. You
should see what they
bring to the table!
The best rice, lentil
and bean dishes ever.
Tastes that introduce
an inventiveness to
make hearty, protein-
rich meals. Food so
good that it makes me
want to eat more like
they do.
I asked my sister
Phoebe if she ever
gets “vegetarian
envy.” Her reply was,
“Absolutely. Our
vegetarian friends
are the best cooks of
food ever—how they
prepare it! In Sooke,
potlucks are the way.
We can’t believe how
it always works out.
You don’t always end
up with 25 salads and
no meat. Sometimes
it’s a bit heavy on the
deserts. Then the old
time farmers bring
crocks of beans and
down home foods
all wrapped up in
towels—and amaz-
ing quiches with farm
eggs and wild mush-
rooms to die for ....
In the fall all these
amazing beets dishes,
and cabbages. I never
thought i would like
REAL cabbage rolls. Or
squash soups. Or car-
rot soups. Real food.
Slow food with real
tastes...”
Right on Phoebe.
Potlucks like yours
happen here too and
I’m sure everywhere
else—especially in
rural places or any-
where there is that
sense of commu-
nity breaking bread
together and talking
to each other telling
stories. It’s a time to
relax and really enjoy
the company of oth-
ers.
The supper the other
night was in a way a
quiet kickoff to “it’s 10
mile diet time again.”
Just about everybody
brought something
they had grown or
were able to buy local-
ly now that we’re well
into July. From now
on we’ll have at least
three more months of
more to come. Soon it
will be squash dishes.
Homemade apple
juices. And corn.
It’s the time of year
to celebrate eating
locally. And there is
nothing better than
saying to friends, and
neighbours—“let’s do
a potluck!”

Oil discovered on Salish Sea
I
t’s been a great
week for our
oceans. Just as
Coast Salish tribal
leaders from B.C. and
Washington gathered
here to celebrate the
official naming of the
Salish Sea, oilfield en-
gineers succeeded in
capping the offshore
well blowout in the
Gulf of Mexico.
The three-month night-
mare of the BP oil platform
disaster has highlighted the
ignorance and hypocrisy
that accompanies debate
about oil here in B.C.
Superannuated hippies
have controlled the urban
discourse, just as they
did the logging debate 20
years ago. They have long
propagated the fantasy that
there is no oil production or
transport in B.C. and that a
mythical “moratorium” has
protected our fragile coast-
line from oil-mad Texans
and Albertans, ever since
truly intelligent, sensitive
human life evolved here in
the 1960s.
This received wisdom was
illustrated in the legisla-
ture’s final days this spring,
when the opposition seized
on a tiny seeping fuel oil
leak discovered at the
Chevron refinery on Burrard
Inlet at Burnaby, and played
to the public horror over the
BP disaster far to the south.
“This is the premier who
wants to end the 40-year
moratorium on supertank-
ers on our coast,” shouted
NDP environment critic Rob
Fleming. “That’s the kind of
environmentalist he is.”
This is nonsense refined
to its purest form. There is
a federal moratorium on
offshore drilling along B.C.’s
West Coast, as there is off
California’s coast, but there
is no moratorium on tanker
traffic and there never has
been. There is an exclusion
agreement between the
Canadian and U.S. federal
governments that tankers
carrying Alaska crude will
not use the Inside Passage
when they bring it down
to a cluster of refineries in
Washington State.
Shell and Tesoro Corp.
share a refinery complex at
March Point, just outside of
Anacortes, Wash., a short
ferry ride from B.C. Some
of the tankers negotiate
the Strait of Juan de Fuca
around the tip of Vancouver
Island and continue past
Anacortes, up to Blaine, just
south of the B.C. border.
Here BP operates the Cherry
Point refinery, Washington’s
largest and the destination
of the Exxon Valdez on that
fateful night in 1989.
On the way between the
islands of southern B.C. and
Washington, these tankers
pass through Rosario Strait,
a gap narrower than the
Inside Passage, or anything
encountered by tankers that
already carry light petro-
leum products into Kitimat.
Once the Gulf of Mexico
blowout was the talk of
Lotus Land coffee shops, it
wasn’t long before Van-
couver city council deter-
mined that there is in fact
oil tanker traffic right into
the city. First a refinery is
discovered in Burnaby, and
then it turns out Kinder
Morgan’s pipeline is loading
ships too! Council immedi-
ately launched a task force
to assess the appalling risks
of oil transport that has pro-
ceeded safely for decades
while council studied things
like a dead stump in Stanley
Park.
It turns out even “tar
sands” oil is shipped out
of Vancouver. No doubt the
city’s latte-sippers would
be happier if this unsightly
business moved up to
Kitimat.
Enter Michael Ignatieff,
the latest leader of the
party that declared Canada
a peacekeeping nation.
(Again, this assumes history
began in the 1960s.)
Ignatieff’s nuanced posi-
tion on oil exports is that
no pipeline should be built
to convey Alberta crude to
Kitimat. Condensate can
continue to go into Kitimat
by ship and to Alberta by
rail, where it is used to di-
lute heavy oil. The resulting
crude can go by pipeline to
Vancouver, where tankers
weave through the island-
dotted arteries of B.C.’s
urban heart.
Call it the “screw Kitimat”
policy. Or just plain screwy.

Reducing trash a
good first step
It’s a burning question facing our politicians: what to do with
our trash?
Besides reducing, recycling and reusing, the question
whether to incinerate or dump culminates with a vote next
Friday as Metro Vancouver considers a trash plan that calls for
a $470-million incinerator.
It’s a complex decision, and our political representatives
have no easy task. But the solution starts with all of us by
reducing our own waste.
And we can do plenty. Recycling options now abound. Many
of them are curbside, while other items—from motor oil to
computers—can be recycled at various collection locations.
There are still items that can’t be recycled, and that will prob-
ably always be the case.
But senior governments can reduce that waste by refusing
to allow plastic products, for example, into our province that
can’t be recycled. Investing in recycling research to give local
and regional governments the tools to ramp up recycling
programs is another way.
Regardless of how this region will dispose of our waste in the
future, we can all do small things right now.
Alexa Loo will be missed
Alexa Loo is trading in her snowboard for a more traditional
job as a chartered accountant.
Loo announced Thursday her retirement from competitive
snowboarding after 11 years training and racing as a member
of the Canadian snowboard team. She leaves the sport as a
two-time Olympian and seven-time national champion in par-
allel giant slalom. She won three World Cups during her career.
The sport will miss Loo, who was a trailblazer for Canadian
women in snowboarding. But she was much more than
that—she gave back. She was a member of the AthletesCAN
board of directors and regularly worked on behalf of her fellow
athletes to improve recognition and support for them. She
also volunteered as a seeing-eye guide for the International
Paralympic Committee, and inspired many Richmond youth
not only through her athletic talent but genuinely warm, caring
nature.

www.hughesco.com • Free Initial Consultation
ADVERTISING FEATURE
Road Rules applauds
three recent editorials
in lower mainland
newspapers. Memo
to cyclists: Obey the
law— was the lead
editorial in the July 2nd
Vancouver Sun. An
initial recitation of the
annual BC statistics:
1,300 crashes involving
cyclists resulting in, on
average, 10 fatalities and more than 1,400
injuries, sets the stage for a straightforward
imperative: both drivers and cyclists need
to know the rules of the road and abide by
them. Because drivers are qualified by strict
and strictly enforced legal requirements, the
stated assumption is that “drivers already
know what to do.” Because “anyone can
purchase a bicycle and ride it” the stated
and, alas, not unreasonable assumption is
that “many cyclists either don’t know the
provincial laws and city bylaws that govern
cycling, believe they don’t apply to them or
deliberately flout them as if to say, “Catch
me if you can.”
The “memo” goes on to describe what
laws apply to cycling—the BC Motor Vehicle
Act and municipal bylaws—in Vancouver,
the City of Vancouver Street and Traffic
By-Law No. 2849—and then lists eight rules
described as only “a small sample” of the
“laws on the books that cyclists break every
day.” Harsh maybe, but with a laudable
premise: that cyclists following the required
rules would prove to drivers that they are
“rightful users the road” and would help
make the roads safer for all.
The second, I am the speeder I despise
was a letter to the editor of the North Shore
News. The writer describes being stopped
for driving 65 km/h in a 50 km/h zone on
his home street. The police officer said,
“We were called by you
(the people living on
this street) because you
complained that there
are too many people
speeding here. We have
been here the whole
morning. And guess
how many people we
stopped who do not live
on this street? Zero! The
only guys who drive like
there is no tomorrow are you! You people
living here!” For the letter writer, “This was
the moment where it dawned on me… It
was not them—it was us!” The frustrated
and wise police officer suggested to the
‘speeder’ that he write a letter to his local
newspaper describing and explaining what
he had learned. We say ‘Hats Off’ to both
‘authors’ of this extraordinary letter.
The third safety article was by Jon Ferry,
the Editorial Pages Editor of The Province
newspaper who often writes about traffic
and road safety issues. Mr. Ferry states
his case in the headline and subhead:
—Clearer signs are needed on BC roads–
Poor signage in the Lower Mainland
causes driver confusion and indecision.
He reports numerous examples of “terrible
[signage]… signs that are “too late and
…not big enough” and “not marked
clearly.” He notes, “This can lead to tragic
accidents.” While acknowledging divided
responsibility amongst different levels of
government as a partial cause, he calls
for “a fresh pair of eyes and a bold new
visionary approach to improving this critical
aspect of road safety.”

Ban visors
on drivers
Editor:
I’ve been living in
Richmond almost all my
life and everyday I see
crazy drivers all over
the place.
They are either
speeding, on the phone
or not paying attention.
I’m writing this let-
ter because I feel we
have a huge issue that
hasn’t been recognized
by anyone. A new law
came out saying that
drivers are not allowed
on the phone while
driving unless it’s a
hands-free device.
However, there is a
worse cause of acci-
dents. They are called
visors. They cover half
your face. I’ve known
a family of four that
got really hurt due to a
wreckless driver wear-
ing a visor—a little girl
got severely hurt.
These visors are
completely dangerous
to pedestrians and
other drivers on the
road, and they must
be banned from on the
road. I’ve told all my
friends my plans on
banning these visors if
it’s the last thing I do.

What about
Christianity?
Editor:
I read with interest the let-
ter in the July 16 Richmond
Review, entitled “Tour to provide
insight on Hinduism, Islam and
Sikhism.” I admire the steps
Richmond Multicultural Concerns
Society is taking to promote
intercultural harmony for new
Canadians, with a particular
focus on inter-faith bridging to
create better understanding and
awareness of different religions.
However, where is the inclusion
of Christianity as a part of your
awareness program?
Christianity, both Protestant
and Roman Catholic, is a sig-
nificant part of Canadian culture
reaching back even before the
formation of Canada as a great
nation.
The Christian Church has influ-
enced education, values, and
principles that make Canada
the nation that it is, and cer-
tainly warrants a place in your
initiatives. Perhaps Richmond
Multicultural Concerns Society
will seek to include Christian
perspectives in future opportuni-
ties for inter-faith bridging. Many
Protestant and Roman Catholic
churches would be happy to
have an opportunity to welcome
and educate new Canadians.

Editor:
I enjoyed Andrea Phillpotts’
column on the challenges
of being home with the kids
(“World Cup referees pro-
vide inspiration for parents,”
July 17), and referring to the
“beautiful sport” for guidance.
I agree, “(Parenting)’s a hard
job, but someone’s got to do it
—the most beautiful job in the
world.”
Unfortunately, those deter-
mined enough to do it full-
time, despite societal pres-
sure to “get a job,” still face
long-standing government tax
policy discrimination. I’d say
blowing a whistle is definitely
needed.
Taxing income based solely
on the individual, on a slid-
ing scale, without permitting
income-splitting, penalizes
one-earner families. Shouldn’t
families with the same total
household income pay the same
tax? How about a yellow card for
the powers-that-be?
Families with one full-
time spouse already sacrifice a
second income for the good of
their team. They’re also expect-
ed to accept a B.C. spousal tax
deduction that remains insult-
ingly lower than the personal
deduction. Seems to me the
refereeing is suspect—that
repeated foul deserves a red
card.
The work of the full-time
parent, who, supposedly,
“doesn’t work,” combined
with the accompanying house-
hold chores (of a homemaker,
who, supposedly, “doesn’t do
anything”), actually far exceeds
a 40-hour workweek. There’s
always extra time added just
when exhaustion looms, and it’s
rare to be sidelined for injury
or illness.
With the status of raising
children, and caring for a
home and family, relegated
to that which can be large-
ly outsourced, or squeezed
in around full-time paid em-
ployment, there’s certainly an
advantage. But is it for the
kids?
Let’s level the playing field
for parents who choose full-
time—no stopping the flow,
no substitutions, certainly
no golden handshakes—the
most beautiful, and impor-
tant, job in the world.

Colin Moore, the Maple Ridge man
convicted of an unprovoked vicious
assault on a female bus driver at
Coquitlam Centre, was sentenced
to one month’s house arrest. Mr.
Moore pulled the driver, a mother
of two, by her throat right out of
her seat, choking her to the point of
unconsciousness. The driver is still
not back at work—and may never
be well enough to return to driving.
Lisa Greenwood (Steve Fonyo’s
finance) was given a two-month jail
sentence, after she was convicted of
shoplifting at Safeway.

Summer is only half way through
but new fall merchandise seems to be
creeping into stores earlier and earlier
each year. Because consumers are be-
ing more educated through new media
and globalization, and more experimen-
tal with their personal style; companies
are constantly on their feet trying to
pump out what they think consum-
ers want in their closets. Since we are
savvy shoppers, our demand has grown
for clothes that have something new,
and will look current months down the
road—in other words seasonless.
Celine Osborne, this month’s lucky
Style Rx winner, is here to show how
to wear pieces that will transport you
to autumn, yet looks appropriate now.
Nominated by her young daughter,
Rachel, Celine went through a depar-
ture from her usual style and is opening
her eyes to a brand new look. We spent
this special day with Rachel and her
cousin, Ashley, as the best junior stylists
I’ve ever had and headed to Sears in
Richmond Centre.
Take one of summer’s most versatile
items, the white jean, and consider it
one of the best investments you can
make for next season. Crisp white jeans
can be more elegant than dark jeans
and can instantly make polished outfits.
Yes, it’s not as practical as blue jeans
and yes, definitely, it takes time to find
the right pair. However, there is a reason
why retailers are finding it hard to keep
these on the shelves. Do not let your
body type discourage you from trying
white jeans on. The payoff is wonderful
and hopefully with these tips you will
find the path to chic dressing easier.
Hair, Make-up and Spa:
Celine’s unforgettable day could
not be complete without the help
of Candice at the Goegan Spa and
Simon and Marlene at H20 Hair and
Nail Company.
She was given a dramatic,
shimmery smoky eye with beneficial
mineral make-up and then left the
salon looking extra gorgeous with her
newly highlighted and re-conditioned
locks.

FIT TIPS:
Petite figure:
Look for lines that have petite inseams. If that fails and you are under 5’ 4”
try a skinny cropped cut. At a shorter length, the jean might work for your legs
without alteration. Avoid boycuts.
Curvy women:
Embrace those curves and look for styles that hug the hips and feature a
leg that stays slim through the knee and calf, flaring slightly at the bottom.
Pick one with a higher rise.
Plus-Size Girls:
Choose fabrics that have heavy stretch fabric to support you in. Stay with a
classic back pocket and make sure that it’s not too small to stay in proportion
with your rear. There are many labels out there that are perfect for this body
type like Not Your Daughter’s Jeans company.

Laundry Tip:
Soak white jeans overnight in a
bucket of water with a pre-treater, like
Oxiclean Stain remover, then wash in
warm water, and hang to dry. Avoid
bleach as much as possible as it
leads to yellowing and breakdown
of the fibers. As always, check the
garment care label before for special
instructions.

Here we picked a pant from Attitude,
a runway inspired line by Sears that de-
buted at Toronto’s LG Fashion Week. The
Attitude line is made up of fashionable
basics that run from sizes 0-16 at under
$100 per piece. What I loved about it
was the little details you find in designer
wear.
Another seasonless item is the
motorcycle-style cotton jacket in a khaki
tone that will still be trending in the fall.
The play on neutral colors particu-
larly nude beige, camel and khaki
is huge. Versatile enough to throw
over a maxi dress or a turtleneck, it
serves as a match for the tuxedo-
style tank top underneath. To really
set off the outfit, we found these
unapologetic, electric blue cut-out
boots in suede leather, also by At-
titude. Ankle boots or “spring boots”
are now suitable for summer or
winter, so there is no need to put
them away.
We at the Style Rx are happy to
hear that Celine, her husband Joel
and her family got to share the
experience together. We hope that
she is thrilled with the results and
continues on trying new things.
“It was amazing to see how
my Mom transformed into the
beautiful woman I know she is!”

ike Sherlock,
the brilliant
detective,
Kathleen Holmes
gets bored when
she is not engaged
in work and activity.
As a seniors infor-
mation and referral
counsellor through
Volunteer Richmond
Information Ser-
vices, Kathleen assists
eligible seniors with
information and ap-
plications for: Canada
Pension, Old Age
Security, Citizenship,
Permanent Residence,
Medical Services Plan
of B.C., Fair Pharma-
Care, B.C. Housing,
SAFER (Shelter Aid for
Elderly Renters), and
Income Tax prepara-
tion. This free assis-
tance is done by in-
person appointments
or via telephone.
Kathleen also pro-
vides a friendly ear for
seniors’ concerns. Al-
though they may come
to her with a specific
question, she often
hears other concerns
emerge as she listens.
She recalls helping a
senior who was having
trouble living on a
monthly pension. As it
turned out the senior
was a low-income
renter who was eligible
to apply for SAFER.
Upon further discus-
sion, Kathleen discov-
ered the senior was be-
ing charged the wrong
monthly premium for
Medical Services Plan
of B.C. Paperwork was
submitted to rectify
this immediately, and
the combined savings
to the client was well
over $100 per month.
What Kathleen
enjoys most about vol-
unteering is meeting
new people.
“Everybody’s got a
slightly different take
on the world and a
slightly different con-
cern,” she says.
Motivated by the
people she helps,
Kathleen has been a
counsellor for the past
five years.

t’s hard to miss—by land, air
or water. River Rock Casino
Resort is a sprawling complex
that’s only getting bigger.
The 24-hour resort has gone
through expansion since its original
opening in 2004 and continues to
attract new people to its property
with help from the Canada Line.
Its hotel offers everything
from one-bedroom suites to a
2,800-square-foot presidential suite.
It boasts nine restaurants and bars,
a 1,000-seat show theatre, conven-

nearly 1,000 slot machines and
dozens of table games, including a
purpose-built poker room and exclu-

THANK YOU RICHMOND SUNSET ROTARY CLUB
The Richmond Sunset Rotary Club does so much for Richmond. Whether it is their annual
Winter Wonderland project that contributes thousands of dollars to many worthwhile
organizations or the special Easter Lunch with our Seniors, Richmond Sunset Rotary Club
has taken a ‘long-term vision’ with its efforts to make Richmond a better place to live, work
and play. They have done this through their establishment of not just one, but a number of
very important permanent endowment funds at the Richmond Community Foundation. Funds
like the Richmond Sunset Rotary Club’s Annual Scholarship Program, the Terra Nova Park
Legacy Fund, the Rick Hansen Community Accessibility Endowment Fund to name a few. It is
groups like the Richmond Sunset Rotary Club, that make a real difference in our Community!
We also offer our sincere thanks to all the volunteers who belong and help with all the
Rotary Clubs in Richmond and for all the excellent work that they do. We would like to
remind everyone that all of the Richmond Sunset Rotary Endowment Funds and Scholarships
are open to receiving further donations at any time. If you would like to make a
contribution, please contact the Foundation at 604-270-4483, or visit our website at

love the fresh foods at our local farmers' markets
and doing my part to make Richmond cleaner and

What makes Ironwood

ennis Da Ponte prepares to park a hotel
guest’s Mercedes. A four-year River Rock em-
ployee, the 35-year-old doorman has greeted
thousands of customers, including his share of
celebrities. Last week, he met comedian and actor
Tim Allen, and found his head definitely wasn’t in
the clouds. “He’s a really funny guy—a really nice

Kong and a River Rock employee since the casino’s beginning, Au answers questions from
guests and teaches them how to play the 998 machines. He says he loves making guests
happy—easy to do when a penny bet could net a prize of a Nissan 370Z sports car that sits
atop one bank of slot machines.

47, is a familiar face at the resort,
having worked there since Day 1.
“I like my regular customers—they
make my day,” says Derksen, a
Steveston resident born and raised
in Richmond. During a typical break-
fast and lunch, she’ll take care of
approximately 100 customers. “The
Thai noodle salad is my favourite,”
she says. “It’s just so good; I love it.
The Asian cuisine is very good.”
A

Pearson provide pedicures to patrons inside the resort. The spa is
popular with stars who’ve played at River Rock Show Theatre, from
Joan Rivers to Tim Allen, who complemented the staff on the spa’s signa-
ture massage treatment with its organic “fresh rainforest” blend.

Fire on
Mitchell
Island
Heavy plumes of
smoke rose from
Mitchell Island Tuesday
night after a fire broke
out in the industrial area.
Crews were called
to the 11000-block of
Mitchell Road at 8:30
p.m. and didn’t leave
until 3 a.m. Wednesday
morning, said Richmond
Fire-Rescue Deputy Chief
Jim Wishlove.
“It was apparently a
very, very difficult fire to
put out,” he said. “Being
in an industrial area,
there’s lots of hidden
places and it’s difficult
to access because of the
industrial equipment.”
Wishlove said the fire
affected two businesses.
There were no injuries.
Safety event

Centre will host a free

tre is located at 8880
Williams Rd. The event
runs from noon to 4 p.m.
on July 25. Call 604-247-

I Volunteer
From Page A12
Last year she helped launch a new outreach initia-
tive in conjunction with VRIS and the West Richmond
Community Centre known as Summer WHAM (Well-
ness, Health and More). The program’s purpose is to
promote the Seniors Information and Referral Pro-
gram and the Wellness Clinics held at West Richmond
Community Centre. This free program turned out to
be a great success as it was extremely well attended.
Positive feedback about the program means Summer
WHAM 2 will be happening again on Aug. 5 at West
Richmond Community Centre.
When she’s not counselling, Kathleen helps at
various wellness clinics in local community centres.
She adds that there is a real need in the community
for volunteers, and emphasizes that her volunteering
hours are flexible. She is able to pursue other inter-
ests such as gardening, travelling, and hockey. But in
the end for Kathleen, it all comes down to the people.
“I hope that someday, if I’m in need, there will be a
volunteer for me,” she reflects.

local oldtimers’ hockey
team since 2004.
Most of the team has
remained intact.
“We had a blast when
we finally made it in
2008 (finishing third in
their division) and we
decided we wanted to
do it again,” said Fritz
Verhoeven, adding he
and his teammates are
already talking about
going again in 2012.
Created by Peanuts’
cartoonist Charles
Shulz, who was a
staunch hockey fan, the
week-long tournament
features 56 teams in
seven age groups—
from 40 to 70-plus.
For the Avs, and all
the others who hoisted
championship trophies,
winning at the Snoopy’s
is celebrated like a
Stanley Cup triumph.
And why not? The tour-
nament attracts teams
from every corner of the
globe. The skill level
is just as wide rang-
ing, as high as former
Vancouver Canuck and
NHL star Igor Larionov
who has, until this year
at least, been a regular
with an over-40 Califor-
nia-based team.
“Being a little younger
on average than the
teams we were playing
maybe gave us a bit
more stamina,” said
Verhoeven, a self-
described defensive
forward. “It probably
made the most dif-
ference in the (third
game’s) 6 a.m. start.”
After a slow start, the
Avs went on to defeat
the Seattle Seniles 8-2.
Their other wins were
over Langley Old Crocs
5-0 and East Bay (Cali-
fornia) Cyclones 5-2.
Goalie Martin Chung
was in net for all three
wins.
Verhoeven said all of
the opponents were
gracious. The Seniles
presented each member
of the Avs with a souve-
nir puck which included
their team motto: “We
must be good, we can’t
remember the last time
we lost.”
Dave Warner is
arguably the Avs’ most
offensively gifted player
and was their top scorer
with four goals and five
assists, while newcom-
er Dale Tanaka had four
goals and two assists.
Two other recent addi-
tions, brothers Al and
Bruce Avery, were rock
steady on defence.
“We have pretty bal-
anced scoring and lots
of glue,” Verhoeven
said of the Avs.
But as talented as
the Avs (also featuring
captain Jim Chu, Shawn
Parks, Chris Sargent,
Chris Bouchard, Al
Avery, Craig Carson,
Jack Picken and Kirk
Saretsky) are, personal-
ity is as important as
skill, said Verhoeven.
“When we’re add-
ing a player we think
about how he will fit
in socially rather than
simply if he’s a good
hockey player,” he
added. “This is a great
group of friends (most
of whom met while
coaching minor hockey
in Richmond) that gets
together quite fre-
quently.”
The bond extends to
the players’ wives, who
are equally close. Many
of them also made the
trip to California. Verho-
even’s 13-year-old son
Marcus offered his dad,
who he describes as “a
plugger,“ playing tips
after every game.
Team members
Graham Amano, Ken
Whitehead and Ed
Arnold were unable to
attend the tournament.
The team also missed
recent retiree Dennis
Dineen.
Richmond Avalanche celebrate their Snoopy’s Senior World Hockey Tournament championship. The Avs
won the over-50B division at the annual event started by Peanuts’ cartoon creator Charles Schulz.
“When we’re
adding a player
we think about
how he will fit in
socially rather
than simply
if he’s a good
hockey player.”
- Fritz Verhoeven
Feet first
Even after falling, Brent Branker of the Caribbe-
an team managed to keep possession of the ball
during a Nations Cup soccer tournament match
last Saturday versus Canada. Branker and his
mates were competing in the men’s open divi-
sion, which was won by India 1-0 over Ireland.

Why is it that the words excitement and spontaneity
always seem to follow “if”, “when” or “as soon as”?
Wouldn’t it be great if we could put aside all the reasons
why we don’t and just do?
Of course, certain realities prevent us from living up to
our full spontaneous potential – work, traffic, chores,
etc… It seems like there’s always a to-do list stuck
between you and your free time. Remember that trip
you wanted to take? That canvas you wanted to turn
into a painting, or that forgotten recipe still hanging by
a fridge magnet? Is it that the days got shorter? Or did
we just forget to take a timeout?
Let’s go back to impromptu play dates and spur of
the moment adventures – ones that work on two
wheels or two feet. Skip the red lights and traffic jams
and get moving on what you really want to do. Say
yes to the bike-ride, that cooking class, the morning
workout or the homemade meal. Because if we spend
our lives driving to the moment instead of living in it,
we’ll forever be asking, “Are we there yet?”
At Morgan Crossing, spontaneity is a built-in feature.
It’s where your favourite restaurant, gym, shoe store,
bakery, dry cleaner, hair salon and grocery store are
only as far as the front door. It’s a nice change from
typical suburbia where a mid-day lawn mow might be
the closest thing you’ll find to spontaneity. There’s a
community built around you, where you can walk to
your wants and needs instead of tracking them with a
GPS device. Watch life unfold in the courtyard, in the
coffee shop or at the edge of your balcony. Here, time
isn’t just spent, it’s enjoyed.

Just days after the final matches of the Yonex Can-
ada Open badminton tournament at the Richmond
Olympic Oval, tournament directors are eagerly look-
ing forward to potentially hosting next year’s event.
More than 5,000 people attended the July 13-18
event, while many more tuned into live streaming
on the web.
“We were very pleased with the success of this
tournament and definitely want to host it again next
year,” said media director Jessy Sung.
Sunday ended with nail-biting matches and grand
prize money totalling $50,000 distributed to final-
ists in all five events. Taiwanese players won three
titles: Cheng Wen Hsing and Chien Yu Chin (women’s
doubles), Fang Chieh Min and Lee Mu Sheng (men’s
doubles) and Lee Sheng Mu and Chien Yu Chin (mixed
doubles). Zhu Lin of China took home the top prize
for women’s singles, and Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia
won the men’s singles title. Many are former Olympic
or world champions.
Players and fans alike credited the tournament
as having a great environment and strong competi-
tion.
“It is a great experience for us to play at this level,”
said Canadian athlete Dan Kai. “It gives the younger
players insight into the level of competition they will
face at the Olympics.”

Canada Open
gets thumbs up
Alpine snowboarder Alexa Loo is trading in her
snowboard for a job as a chartered financial ana-
lyst.
The 37-year-old Richmondite spent the last 11 years
training and racing on the Canadian team. She is a
two-time Olympian and seven-time Canadian cham-
pion in parallel giant slalom and stepped three times
on the FIS World Cup podium.
“Alexa has been a trailblazer for women in snow-
boarding, leading the path and motivating younger
alpine snowboarder to strap up and snowboard. Al-
exa leaves a strong legacy to women’s snowboard-
ing, and we genuinely wish her the best of success in
her professional career,” said Robert Joncas, director

Richmond Sockeyes will have a notably local look
when they open their 2010-11 Pacific International
Junior Hockey League season in September.
The team recently signed defenceman Turner
Popoff, who played with the Vancouver Canadi-
ans in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League last
season, and forward Rudi Thorsteinson from Rich-
mond minor’s Midget A1 team. They also added
goalie Devin Nijjer, a teammate of Popoff’s with
the Canadians.
Sockeyes now have signed nine players who
played their minor hockey in Richmond.

White Rock Renegades ’91 claimed the 2010 B.C.
Midget girls’ softball title at Richmond’s London Park
Sunday.
With nine wins and one loss in the tournament, the
Renegades took the championship with a 12-3 win
against Surrey Storm ’93.
“Previously in this tournament we lost to that same
team,” says head coach Chuck Westgard. “We felt pretty
deflated but came back fighting.”
Having to play through the back door of the tourna-
ment bracket, the Renegades battled through four
games on Sunday. Starting pitcher Nicole Sidor threw
three of those games, including the championship. Back-
ing her up on the mound was flawless defence and a
strong producing offence.
“We were just hitting the ball,” explains Westgard. “All
throughout the lineup we scored runs and did our job.”
Aiding in the run count was catcher Jackie Rothenberg-
er, who crushed seven home runs in the tournament and
second base Tayla Westgard who had well over a .500
batting average. First base Taylor McBeth also contrib-
uted in a round-robin game with a walk-off grand slam.
As a team, White Rock had 15 home runs in the tourna-
ment, including three in the final game.
After a successful 2009 season in which they were
Canadian champions, the pressure to perform for the
Renegades—a third-year team in the Midget Division—
was high.
“The girls were confident and relaxed,” says Westgard.
“They were never worried and just got it done.”
The Renegades ‘91 will return to Saint John, N.B. Aug
1-8, to fight for the national championship once again.
Joining them will be Renegades ‘92 draped in bronze and
sports

title in Richmond
Richmond Sr. Select Super Mites
completed a marathon weekend by
finishing fourth in the recent invita-
tional girls’ fastball championship in
Burnaby. The nine- and 10-year-olds
played seven games over three days
among 16 elite teams.
Richmond’s opening game was a
nailbiter as they waited until the final
at-bats for Capri Horstmann to get the
first of her many timely hits, followed
by a Josie Cooke homer to complete a
comeback win over Tsawwassen. The
second and third games against Van-
couver and Newton presented chal-
lenges, however Richmond won both
behind the combined pitching of Tylere
Morin and Ellen Yam.
Entertaining back-to-back games
against Ladner followed, each provid-
ing highlight reel plays. In a display
of incredible pitching, Emilie Sherritt
threw a full seven-innings and allowed
just one hit in each.
Emily Latrace’s double to left field
with two out in the seventh inning
gave Richmond a 3-2 win in the sec-
ond game.
Following the victory the exhausted
Richmond squad (also featuring Nata-
lie Caras, Abby Zawada, Jalen Donald-
son, Kenzie Wrightson, Miranda Herle,
Serena Sturton, Anastasia Morrison
and Natasha Kis-Toth) continued to
play some spirited ball but came up
short in their final two games against
Langley and Cloverdale.
The Richmond team was coached
by Larry Morrison, Bert McGolrick,
Jody Latrace and Mike Morin. Ken Fee,
Zeone Andrijaszn and Rob Scott also
provided the team with valuable in-

May 6-1929 - July 15, 2010
Surrounded by his family and
close friends it is with great
sadness that we announce the
passing of beloved husband
and father after a year long
battle with cancer. Ken was
born in Koslow, Poland and
came to Canada at the age
of one year with his parents
and siblings. Ken grew up in
Rembrandt, Manitoba and joined
the Canadian Army in 1950. He
served in the Korean War for
one and a half years and was a
proud war veteran who loved
to share his war stories with
everyone.
He is survived by his loving
wife of 45 years Helen, daughter
Shelley, sister Mary of Detroit, as
well as many relatives and close
friends. He was predeceased by
his parents Gregory and Annie,
brothers Mike, Martin, Peter and
sister Stella.
Ken and Helen married and
then moved to Vancouver in
1965. He worked as an auto
body mechanic for several years
until being injured on the job.
He will be sadly missed and
remembered forever as a kind,
caring and unselfish individual.
He loved to volunteer his
spare time working at church
and his greatest achievement
was that of the installation of the
Iconostas.
Ken was a talented gardener
who took great pride in
maintaining the yard and
flowers, loved fishing at the river,
traveling the world, and walking
his Siberian Huskies, Keesha,
Kaiser and Katanna. Ken was
a very hospitable person and
enjoyed having friends come to
the house for visits and dinners.
For many years Ken faithfully
drove his
daughter
Shelley
twice a day to swim practice in
downtown Vancouver and never
complained.
Ken spent his final month
at the Salvation Army Rotary
Hospice House overlooking
beautiful gardens and flowers
and received excellent care.
The family wishes to thank
Dr. Eric Watts, the doctors and
technicians at the BC Cancer
Agency, Palliative Care team
at Richmond Hospital, and
especially the wonderful nurses
and staff at the hospice for
everything they did to keep Ken
comfortable. As well, a special
thanks to all our family, friends
and neighbors who have been
so supportive during this past
difficult year.
A prayer service will be held
on Sunday July 25 at 7:00 pm and
a funeral service will take place
Monday July 26 at 10:00am.
Both services will be held at
Holy Dormition Mother of God
Ukranian Catholic Church, 8700
Railway, Richmond, BC.
A reception will follow
the funeral at the Richmond
Funeral Home, 8420 Cambie Rd,
Richmond, BC. A private family
burial will be held at Valleyview
Memorial Gardens, Tuesday,
July 27 at 12:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers donations
may be made in Ken’s name to
the Richmond Hospital Palliative
Care Unit or the Salvation
Army Rotary Hospice House in
Richmond.
We love you papa
and may you
have eternal
peace.

Step into the Canadian Job Market!
Hello, I am Tara the Director of Admissions with Academy of
Learning. As someone who was once a new immigrant to
Canada and a former student of Academy of Learning,
I understand the struggle of being new to the Canadian
job market.
You may have found your previous education and skills seem
to be irrelevant in this job market. Previous education will be
taken into consideration for credits towards your program. With upgrading to a Canadian
diploma and certification, your new skills combined with your past education will soon
help you get back in a related field you were in back home or a whole new career.
After completion of your program, our job coordinator Mary Rees will assist you with
your job search
Remember, I have experienced what you are now going through, so please call me at
604-270-3907 and I will be happy to set you on the right path.
Papers are delivered to your door. No need to insert flyers either!
Deliver 2x week, Thursdays and Saturdays, right in your
neighbourhood. Call our circulation department for information.
