In recent years Richmond, British Columbia, a quintessential middle class suburb of Vancouver, has seen its Chinese immigrant population grow significantly; a change that has not gone uncontested by a largely ‘white’ European incumbent population. This long‐established suburban neighbourhood provides an opportunity to examine contested place imagery and a discourse of racism that is shaping spatial relations in ways that depart from earlier discussions of inner‐city Chinatowns. The paper has three principal objectives. The first is to develop a conceptual framework for interpreting the actual and imagined geographies of ethnic change and the tensions it can generate within local space. The second is to evaluate the social and physical changes brought about within Richmond by a relatively recent arrival of Chinese immigrants. Questions of scale are explored both at the community and neighbourhood levels, and we seek to determine whether the patterns of Chinese residential settlement represent a break from the past. Finally, we seek to employ the conceptual framework to evaluate local responses to ethnic change in Richmond given the spatial context within which ethnic change is being experienced.
She must find motivation in order to persevere! Starring: Lynn-Holly Johnson, Robby Benson, Colleen Dewhurst, and Tom Skerritt. Lynn-Holly Johnson plays skater Alexis Winston, who skates because she loves it. She has a natural talent for the sport and is coached by a family friend. She is spotted at a competition by a coach who wants to take over her training to turn her into a champion. However, Alexis's Olympic dreams as an upcoming skater are shattered when she falls on the ice and loses her eyesight. Her family takes her home to help her try to adjust to life without her eyesight. Despite her blindness, Alexis's boyfriend insists she should try skating again because it would be pointless and cruel not to try. He pushes her to get back on the ice, and with help from family and friends, she is able to overcome her disability and do the sport she loves again. Skaters today often choose this film's theme song, Through the Eyes of Love by Melissa Manchester, as their music in a competition or exhibition.

Dorsey is injured in a violent hockey game and Moseley experiences a fall when her partner drops her while performing a lift. Dorsey is not able to play hockey again and without a suitable partner Mosely is not able to continue her quest for a championship.
Moseley goes through potential skating partners in temperamental fits until she is left with no further options. Finally, Dorsey is recruited to try out with Mosely, and they are both made to realize that there is no other choice for either of them if they want to make it to the Olympics.
