onstance Barnes had mixed emotions two days after losing her bid to run for the provincial NDP in the Vancouver-False Creek riding at a nomination meeting Saturday. With one breath, the Vision Vancouver park board commissioner described her disappointment at her defeat, while with the next she insisted as part of the NDP she will work to ensure a win in the May 2013 provincial election. Beating Barnes by six votes was Matt Toner, a video game designer who in 2006 launched Zeros 2 Heroes Media at Cambie and Hastings, which employs more than 30 workers. “It was unexpected,” Barnes told the Courier Monday. “But I have to stay positive. I’m proud that I stayed true to myself and I’m humbled by the amount of support I’ve received through it all.” Barnes is the second high-profile Vancouver civic politician in less than a month to fail to make the jump to provincial politics. Vision Vancouver Coun. Geoff Meggs was unsuccessful in his bid to win the NDP nomination for Vancouver-Fairview after losing Oct. 21 to union leader and environmentalist George Heyman. Barnes said supporters of early childhood learning and the Kitsilano Coast Guard station, which is scheduled to close, told her they were also disappointed by her loss. “So now they’re telling me I should run federally so I can take their voice to Ottawa,” said Barnes. “I’ve also been asked to run in other ridings.” The second-term park board commissioner is considering both options. “But I consider myself a team player first and I’m going to do what I can to support Matt Toner,” said Barnes. “My goal is to see the NDP in government, it just looks like the universe has another plan for me.” See CIVIC on page 4

Newelementaryschoolneedsaname NAMING COMMITTEE SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT, FAVOURS RECOGNIZING AREA’S ABORIGINAL RATHER THAN COLONIAL PAST CHERYL ROSSI Staff writer

V

ancouver’s newest school could be named to honour a notable historic person or the history, culture and geography of the area. The Vancouver School Board is seeking suggestions to be submitted by 4 p.m. Jan. 18. The new elementary school is slated to open next fall on the site of University Hill secondary on the traditional lands of the Musqueam people at the University of B.C. Its classes currently run in portables on the grounds of Queen Elizabeth elementary. School board chair Patti Bacchus noted when the district’s naming policy was discussed last February that few school names in Vancouver reflect First Nations history, whereas nearby schools with names such as Queen Mary and Lord Byng reflect Canada’s colonial past. School board trustee Mike Lombardi, liaison to University Hill and the board’s naming committee, says the district updated its naming policy earlier this year to include First Nations cultural heritage. Lombardi said the committee hopes to attract a wide range of names. “Members of the committee would look favourably on [a Musqueam name] and what we want is as many names submitted as possible,” he said. An eight-member naming committee will provide input on the submissions. The committee includes a representative from the Musqueam Indian Band, a parent advisory council representative, a school board administrator, a representative of UBC, a stu-

Input will go to the board’s planning and facilities committee, which will make a recommendation to the board. Lombardi expects a decision to be made in the spring. The most recent school opened in the city was Yaletown’s Elsie Roy elementary in 2004. It was named in honour of a woman who worked for the VSB for 44 years as a teacher and a teacher instructor, and also authored children’s books. She died in 1986. The Acadia Road school will accommodate

approximately 850 students in two wings that will connect through the vaulted gymnasium that will be retained when the rest of the old U Hill secondary is demolished. A large sundial is planned for the entrance of the school and a giant “tree” will brighten a large gathering space with plywood leaves painted by the school’s students. School board project manager Kelly Isford-Saxon says classes of one grade will be clustered around a central learning area with the spaces connected or separated by garage doors. Main floor spaces will have direct access to the outdoors with seating

areas where students can learn outside. Second floor classrooms will include decks. The intermediate wing includes a greenhouse and a large deck on the corner for green demonstration projects. The new school will also include an outdoor amphitheatre and an all-weather playing field. The library will include a raised “story corner” with soft seating and a “story cave” where teachers can read to younger classes.

Civic politicians’ provincial bids thwarted CONTINUED from page 1 Barnes said she and Toner ran two very different campaigns. While Barnes took a more grass-roots approach to the campaign, asking supporters for a mere $10 from their “cookie jars,” the well-connected Toner aggressively campaigned via social media. Toner agreed the two had different styles of campaigning. “I didn’t consciously follow Obama’s campaign, but like him we attracted a lot of young people,” Toner said. He said is not intimidated by the fact he’ll likely be facing either former NPA

mayor Sam Sullivan or former Liberal MLA and Christy Clark supporter Lorne Mayencourt as the Liberal candidate for the riding. Earlier this month Sullivan announced he’s seeking the Liberal nomination, while Mayencourt has yet to confirm. Mary McNeil is the current Liberal MLA in the riding, but announced she is not seeking re-election. “I’ve already upset a heavily-favoured politician and I look forward to doing it again,” said Toner. “The Liberals are dragging these old war horses out as return-

one current or former civic politician in Vancouver has won a provincial nomination battle. For-

mer Vision Vancouver city councillor George Chow was acclaimed in late September to run for the NDP

in Vancouver-Langara. Former NPA councillor Suzanne Anton, who ran unsuccessfully with the NPA for mayor in 2011, is seeking the Liberal nomination in Vancouver-Quilchena against former party president Andrew Wilkinson. Current MLA Colin Hansen has announced he will not seek re-election. Wilkinson, a lawyer who was also trained as a medical doctor, is a former president of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association. He’s a Rhodes scholar and was one of former premier Gordon Campbell’s closest advisers. sthomas@vancourier.com Twitter: @sthomas10

VCH SAYS BETTER PROGRAMS AVAILABLE ELSEWHERE MICKI COWAN Contributing writer

oney has run out for the Rainier Hotel addictions treatment program for women. Theprogramoffersaddictions and clinical treatment to 41 homeless women in the Downtown Eastside over a longer term and focuses on former sex-trade workers. As they progress in their treatment, the women move up from the treatment program on the second floor to the third floor for housing and career assistance and receive continued clinical support. But the $5 million funding from Health Canada will run dry by early December. Vancouver Coastal Health has decided not to continue the program with money it receives from the provincial government and will find space for these women in other treatment programs and services. “The clients are going to be transitioned into services VCH provides and housing from B.C. Housing,” said VCH spokesperson Anna Marie D’Angelo. “The clients will be transitioned out when funding ends.” Those enrolled in the program will under-

Mark Townsend, director of the Portland Hotel Society, which manages the Rainier Hotel, said it would be “insane” to end the program, due to the need for women’s treatment centres in the Downtown Eastside. And without the treatment centre, he said the Rainier will lose its heart and soul. “All those things go and what you basically have is the soul ripped out of it and you have

a single room occupancy hotel, which when I last checked is not a treatment program for women. It’s just an SRO,” said Townsend. Townsend said as of Sunday, Nov. 18, the PHS had still not been informed the addictions program would be shut down. Until he spoke to the Courier, he was under the impression VCH was trying to “cobble together solutions” to continue that program. ‘It’s a distinct lack of carefulness in something that actually means a lot to 40 people,” he said.

Violet-Rose Pharoah, a resident on the third floor of the Rainier, said although she took part in a short term treatment program outside of the Rainier, the hotel’s programs have been critical to her recovery. The programs include the writing and First Nations talking circle programs the Rainier offers. “That was the cool thing. They’ve stood with me the whole process just to support me as I’ve started to start functioning as a member of society.” She said the Rainier’s support after completing her addictions treatment program that has given her and others at the Rainier something to hold onto. “If you don’t have stable housing [or] the support to help you find meaningful employment, it’s very likely you’re going to start looking at the way that your life used to be [and] possibly again picking up drinking or drugs.” D’Angelo said the women will have better services than they had at the Rainier. Townsend said he didn’t know how that would be possible. Many of the other addictions treatment programs offered by VCH are a month in length or at a unisex facility. B.C. Housing confirmed it will not be moving anyone out of the Rainier and will continue $730,000 worth of annual housing funding. The Ministry of Health’s only response to the Courier has been that it is up to VCH to decide where to allocate the funding it is provided. Mickicowan@gmail.com twitter.com/mickicowan

growing produce for sale to Vancouver grocery stores and restaurants under the Local Garden brand. The city leased the rooftop to Local Garden Vancouver Inc., a subsidiary of Alterrus Systems, while Vancity provided the financing to commercialize the greenhouse.

RANGE OF SUGGESTIONS

GROWING UP When I first heard about “vertical farming,” I had visions of farmers with SpiderMan-like powers scaling tall building while picking tomatoes. But alas, it was not to be. In the case of Alterrus Systems Inc.’s VertiCrop it turns out while vertical farming does not call for super powers, it does include technology that allows leafy green vegetables to grow on suspended trays attached to a moving conveyor system providing maximum exposure to light. Designed to grow in controlled environments, VertiCrop also eliminates the need for herbicides or pesticides. The high-density urban farming system grows more than 10 times the produce of an equivalent field and uses one-tenth the water and fertilizer. Tuesday morning, Alterrus chief executive officer Christopher Ng joined Mayor Gregor Robertson and other special guests on the top level of the EasyPark parkade at 535 Richards for a tour of the city’s first rooftop vertical farm. The farm is located within a 6,000-square-foot greenhouse, which is

Last week I wrote that the city decided bowling might be a good activity to offer at this city’s community centres, an idea I questioned considering the fact the cashstrapped park board has struggled with budget deficits. But Vision Vancouver park board commissioners Constance Barnes and Aaron Jasper, as well as NPAer John Coupar took up the challenge by bringing separate motions to the park board. Barnes’s and Jasper’s motion goes to the park board Nov. 26. I also heard from reader Elizabeth Porteous who agrees it’s a good idea. “Enjoyed your column and info on bowling,” wrote Porteous in an email. “It’s kind of a no-brainer when you think of the participation in exercise that we all seem to want and need. If anyone can get it going you’d think that the city would be number one and seniors certainly appreciate the social benefits.” Perhaps including a bowling alley will become a priority for all future community centres built in the city. But if it’s increased revenue the park board wants, I suggest a shooting range. They take up the same

And instead of bowling, seniors can take their frustrations out shooting at images of proposed multi-story developments in Dunbar and along Cambie. It’s a win-win.

news Tickling the ivories of a Horowitz Steinway WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2012 THE VANCOUVER COURIER

STORIED PIANO MAKES A STOP IN VANCOUVER NAOIBH O’CONNOR Staff writer

A

piano belonging to one of the greatest pianists of the 20th Century, Vladimir Horowitz, is attracting a fan following in Vancouver this week. The piano, also known as CD 503, is at Tom Lee Music on Granville Street until Nov. 25, after which it heads to Richmond from Nov. 27 to Dec. 2 as part of a North American tour. Tom Lee Music is hosting open houses on the weekends — Nov. 24 and 25 in Vancouver and Dec. 1 and 2 in Richmond — and the public can also book 15-minute private appointments during the week to play the storied instrument and/ or have their photo taken with it. Slots are filling up quickly. As of Monday, Tom Lee Music vice president Graham Blank said more than 120 appointments had been scheduled over the two weeks with 60 more appointments available. “It would be the equivalent of Jimi Hendrix’s Stratocaster. It’s one of those things where if you’re a piano player, this is the piano,” Blank said. He noted the price of a new Steinway Model D nine-foot grand piano is $130,000, while the Horowitz Steinway Model D is considered priceless.“WehavetheactualHorowitzpiano,aswell as a brand new Steinway concert grand, so you

The Horowitz grand piano followed Horowitz, who lived from 1903 to 1989, on tour. Steinway & Sons gave Horowitz and his wife Wanda a Steinway Model D, serial No. 279503 as a wedding gift in 1934. This piano was replaced with No. 314503 in the early 1940s — now known as CD 503. Horowitz kept it in his townhouse.

He used it in recitals and recordings in the ’70s and ’80s and demanded it be his exclusive touring piano during the last four years of his life, including his return to the former Soviet Union for performances in Moscow and Leningrad in 1986. During a Friday press conference, Robert Silverman, a retired director of the school of music at UBC and a working musician, played a piece

by Brahms on the piano. Silverman, who’s affiliated with Steinway as a “Steinway Artist,” calls it an extraordinary instrument, which also has historical importance. Silverman played on the Horowitz Steinway during a full-length concert at the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver about five years ago. “It’s just such a responsive instrument. It’s like a violinist playing an absolutely great Stradivarius as opposed to other instruments that are maybe good but not quite in its league,” he said. “The keys [on the Horowitz piano] just work in such a way that each one is capable of producing an incredible variety of tone colours whether it’s sharp, angular or mellow — that’s what I mean by responsive. It just becomes an extension of the performing artist’s soul.” Silverman said both the skill of a musician and the instrument on which the musician plays are important. “You can only do so much with a given piano and this does more than any I’ve ever had in my experience. And, on the other hand it’s also a given that some people can do more on any given instrument, including this, than others. In Horowitz, there was just a match of one of the most imaginative pianists around and an instrument that could do what he wanted.” noconnor@vancourier.com Twitter: @Naoibh

ollowing its recent Justice, Not Charity conference on child poverty, COPE is calling on the provincial government to provide money for breakfast programs in all 14 designated inner-city elementary schools. COPE wants the Vancouver School Board to begin simultaneous planning and aggressive lobbying of the province so breakfast programs can run at all 14 schools in September 2013. Breakfast programs run at six of the 14 inner-city elementary schools with money from companies, labour unions, service clubs, churches and national organizations such as the Breakfast Club of Canada, says Marcy Toms, the co-chair of COPE’s education committee. She said the province’s CommunityLINK program does not fund breakfast programs and argues theses essential programs need more than ad hoc, charitable donations. It’s difficult to estimate how much money would be needed to pay for 14 breakfast programs because some enrol more students than others. Toms said Strathcona Community Centre funds the food program at Strathcona elementary that serves

babies, toddlers, caregivers and students and costs between $85,000 and $100,000 per year. Toms, who has volunteered there since 2009, says the food program has seen a 25 per cent increase in clientele since the start of the school year. She said a conservative cost estimate for all 14 programs would be between $1 million and $1.5 million per year. “Clearly, at the very least, getting healthy breakfasts into the stomachs of hungry kids is a necessary start to fulfilling the mandate of public schools,” Toms, a retired secondary teacher, wrote in an email. COPE also calls for support to be restored for learning assistance, special education, English as a second language programs and counselling services.

EXCELLENT TEACHER Gladstone secondary teacher Janet Thompson will receive a 2012 Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Teaching. She’s had her social studies 10 students scouring atlases to track the climate and geography of Upper Canada so they can better understand what pioneer life was like centuries ago.

news Dunbar group takes fight to steps of city hall WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2012 THE VANCOUVER COURIER

RE-VISIONISTS WANT VOICE IN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENTS MICKI COWAN Contributing writer

M

ore than 100 citizens showed up on the steps of city hall last Friday to protest densification in Dunbar and around Vancouver without the city first offering adequate consultation. The “Give Communities a Voice” rally was organized by neighbourhood group Dunbar Re-Vision — a group that’s rallying around the idea of “no densification without consultation.” The group formed last month in opposition to a proposed retirement community development in Dunbar called Pacific Arbour that would be as tall as six to seven storeys high. One of those protesters, Dunbar resident Marina Hislop, said she was there because she doesn’t like what is happening in her neighbourhood, “I really want Dunbar to remain the way it is. It’s very important not just for me, but for my children who want to continue living in Dunbar,” said Hislop. But the protest has expanded beyond just the development — protesters at city hall held signs that read “stop Vision,” “unHappy Planet” and “Vancouver Vision is short sighted.” Even Green Coun. Adriane Carr voiced oppo-

A9

sition in a speech she gave at the event. “Virtual de facto rezoning that will mean higher density without any public consultation of any meaning in terms of that,” said Carr. She mentioned a task force formed by Mayor Gregor Robertson surrounding housing. “I’m saying the experts on the mayor’s task force were experts, but they are not citizens. You are the citizens and your point of view is just as valid and important and as expert-based,” said Carr. “You have a vision and you deserve to have people at city hall recognizing that your vision for your neighbourhood is the right one to follow.” Dunbar Re-vision representative Mike Andruff said people were there to stand up for their rights. He called the task force’s rezoning a disaster for the city, and called this protest as evidence that the people want a voice. For Hislop, she feels that voice can be given to residents of Vancouver by offering more public consultations. She hopes the protest leads city hall to change its mind about the development’s location. “I hope that maybe it’s a four storey or somewhere else where they’re not going to disturb the neighbourhood, somewhere where there’s actually an area for this kind of development, not in the middle of where people are living.” Dunbar is currently zoned as a one family dwelling district. Developments such as Pacific Arbour need to be approved for re-zoning by the photo Dan Toulgoet city council before construction can begin. More than 100 people, including Maxine Weatherston, showed up for the “Give mickicowan@gmail.com Communities a Voice“ rally at city hall Friday. The protest was organized by the twitter.com/mickicowan group Dunbar Re-Vision.

Get ready for the Liberals’TV ad blitz

B

ack in the pre-PVR days when I had to actually watch TV commercials, nursing grudges against the most annoying ones was a hobby. After the umpteenth exposure, my hatred for the company doing the advertising would burn bright and true, like a gas-well fire. “Die, Swiffer mop lady! Die!” My contempt for the product would be wildly out of proportion to its impact on my life, just based on the tediousness. Now the B.C. Liberals are embarking on a commercial blitzkrieg that will pound their jobs plan into the head of every TV watcher in the province. You have to wonder if the overkill factor won’t kick in. The premise is that the Liberal government has an economic plan, and taxpayers should know about it. The not-so-subtle underlying message is: You should vote for the Liberals next year because the jobs plan is the stuff of genius. Since they’re using taxpayers’ money to pay for them, there are no cost constraints on the campaign. So there is every indication they will carpetbomb B.C. living rooms with as many jobs-plan commercials as it is possible to produce. Along with newspaper ads and radio spots, they’ve been saturating prime time lately, and one of the featured commercials is one that runs a full 90 seconds, which is three times longer than the norm. A campaign of 90-second spots would be too expensive for most advertisers, but the Liberals don’t have that worry because they’re using your money. The campaign was budgeted at $15 million last year, but the true cost won’t be known until next summer. The star of those once-a-week extended-play spots is Premier Christy Clark, which will surprise people who thought that’s what ex-broadcaster Pamela Martin was hired for. Clark does a stand-up and introduces a topic — trades training, for instance — then throws to an expert who outlines the issue. Then she closes the bit with another pitch for the jobs plan. Whenever a politician wrangles face time in a government ad campaign, it becomes a lot more about the politician than it does about the issue being advertised. The striking thing about the campaign is that it’s at odds with some of the expert advice the B.C. Liberals listened to at their Whistler convention a few weeks ago. The party invited two campaign experts from Ontario and Alberta — Don Guy and Stephen Carter — to speak at a closed-door session. Both are notable for their involvement in surprise wins. Given the B.C. Liberals’ current standing, that’s precisely why there were invited. The general thrust of their message — as leaked by dozens of tweets — was that the electorate is very volatile and many people won’t decide their votes until the last week before the May 2013 election. Which makes you wonder why the government is cranking up a blitz six months out. Vancouver Sun reporter Jonathan Fowlie later posted a transcript of part of their presentation. As Guy said: “The most important thing ... is are we delivering information that the voter can relate to and finds useful?” Some parts of the advice do apply to the ad blitz now underway. Carter spoke about showing voters you’re doing something you believe in. He stressed the need to find people with passion and conviction and use them on the team. Guy advised Liberals to use all the tools at their disposal and push a consistent, coherent set of supportive messages delivered across a series of platforms, “at the time voters were ready to pay attention.” It looks as if the Liberals absorbed about half of that message. The government is sincerely committed to the plan. And obviously they’re going to be consistent in pushing the jobs plan from now to May. But the rest of the advice was about timing the campaign properly, and being adept strategically and targeting their message in a sophisticated way. Clark’s ever-changing communication team has ignored all that. They’re simply going to bulldoze one message — “we’ve got a jobs plan” — as far as they can. Although the jobs plan is overexposed and over-hyped, it’s actually a well-thought-out piece of work. Too bad people will likely be sick to death of hearing about it — and tired of paying for that privilege — by the time the real campaign begins. lleyne@timescolonist.com

Pot laws not about all or nothing

W

hat is really at stake if British Columbia follows Washington State and Colorado and successfully legalizes

marijuana? Money, of course, that other green substance. Let’s start with the estimated value of the illicit pot growing industry here in B.C. It’s often claimed to be between $6 billion to $8 billion, a fairly rough estimate given that none of the principals are filling out any corporate tax forms or quarterly earning reports. Even if it’s lower than the estimates, it’s a huge industry. By contrast, in 2011 the entire forest industry had a value of just under $10 billion. If the local pot growing economy goes legit, we’ll see some unusual effects, only some of them strictly economic. Everyone who argues for legalization points out that we can then tax the bejezus out of marijuana. How much would that raise? In B.C., the tax rate for small businesses is 2.5 per cent, 10 per cent for big businesses. Let’s assume, very conservatively, that we get nothing but small Mom and Pop artisanal ganja growers and small-scale retailers. Let’s also take the lower $6 billion valuation of the industry. That would mean about $150 million in provincial tax revenues off the top. But wait! The cost of growing pot will drop substantially if it’s legal, and grown in the open. Maybe it won’t be that costly to sell? Except that it will be taxed at the point of sale, too. So that’s another few million bucks a year. Sin taxes, plus sales taxes, add up quickly. And that’s not even considering the federal tax implications. Then there are the personal income taxes that would be paid by those legally employed in the industry. So what about effects beyond the purely taxational? We have no grow-ops in houses, because growing outdoors or in greenhouses is cheaper, so there are a few more houses on the market than otherwise. Not enough to bring down prices, though. We have a whole lot of unemployed criminals. Some fraction of them will go legit and turn themselves into small farmers and storekeepers. Others will not make this transition. I’m thinking of the Langley man who stabbed another man to death purely out of the suspicion that the other man might have stolen his pot plants. It’s hard to imagine a ragefilled killer fitting in well at a chamber of commerce meeting. So some gangsters are going to try to move into the remaining illicit drugs, like heroin and cocaine. There might be a gang war as the crooks fight over the pieces of a smaller pie. While we’ll see more government tax revenues, this will be somewhat offset. A significant number of small businesses will close their doors. They’ll all be places that could plausibly accept a lot of cash payments: restaurants, bars, hair and nail salons, corner stores, and so on. Because in every community where there are pot growers, there is a need to launder money. In the long term, our society wouldn’t look a lot different. Some people smoke pot now, some people will never smoke it if it’s legal. (Like me.) People commit crimes now, they’re not going to stop if pot is legal. Things could be a bit more stable, both tax-and crime-wise in the long term, but it won’t turn B.C. into a magical land of unicorns and pixies. But we don’t make policy decisions based on false ideas that we will create utopias or dystopias. We should make them based on what seems like best practices. To me, it looks like things would be better with legal marijuana than with the current system. mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

LFL’S LACK OF PAY, DISREGARD FOR INJURY SHAMEFUL

To the editor: Re: “Reporter knocked out of LFL,” Nov. 16. I am writing about Megan Stewart’s experience with the B.C. Angels football team. I read and enjoyed her previous articles about the team and the individuals that were vying for a spot on the roster. The stories gave some background about the people who wanted to join the team instead of being another slam against the women who wished to participate. What disturbed me then and more so now after Friday’s article was the seemingly lackadaisical attitudes concerning the participants safety. The league and coaching staff seem to have no interest or concern about injuries. [The reporter’s] personal injury involving a concussion and the complete lack of safety equipment provided by the team must go against some of the rules governing sports in the province. And for no one to follow up on [her] injury is just wrong. At a time when so much is known about concussions and their long-term effects, it is disturbing how callously players are treated in a league that is trying to find mainstream success. It has to be asked if wanting to play at a higher level without remuneration and risking permanent injuries is really worth it? Rob Gill, Vancouver

IRONY AT PLAY IN KLASSEN COLUMN To the editor:

Re: “Give Vancouver neighbourhoods the tools for change,” Nov. 13. Doesn’t it seem ironic that Mike Klassen now advocates “reviving

CityPlan”? Klassen was the consultant who worked outside of city hall to register the ecodensity.ca URL for ex-mayor Sam Sullivan. A mixed NPA-Vision council majority imposed the trademarked EcoDensity™ initiative on Vancouver residents in June 2008 following on an epic seven evenings of public hearings. EcoDensity™ set out to kill CityPlan while it was still in gestation. An active multi-million-dollar “planning” exercise became inconvenient to politicians and developers long before it reached first-stage completion in 2010 with West Point Grey. There was no second stage. While the so-called Vision Implementation Review (2008-2009) tailed off into programmatic disappearance of that unwanted planning effort, the NPA-Vision axis was busy conducting funeral rites for the local committees connected to the nine Community Visions. I nominate also-ran NPA council candidate Mike Klassen for flipflop of the decade. Joseph Jones, Vancouver

HUMANS DAMAGE, NOT TREES

To the editor:

Re: “Trees great, but what about the damage they do?” Letters, Nov. 16. So trees are bothersome and cost us money to repair cracked sidewalks and clogged gutters and drains. Well, if humans really had to pay for what trees offer us for free we’d all be broke. They’re called ecosystem services. Besides sequestering carbon to make oxygen so we can breathe, trees provide shade, beauty, soil fertilizer, food, building materials, art and animal habitat — all for free. Humans provide nothing — they just use up common natural capital at a great rate and complain. Since we started walking on two

legs, humans have cut down half of the world’s forests, mostly in the last century. And there’s a third more carbon dioxide in the air than at the start of the Industrial Revolution. We desperately need trees and their saviour friends so future generations can breathe and not get totally cooked by climate change. Trees don’t destroy, humans do. We’re lucky trees are immobile or they might follow our example to rise up one day and clearcut us all. Celia Brauer, Vancouver

DEVELOPERS RUN AMOK

The editor: More and more people in Vancouver are bothered, bewildered and frustrated by a raft of buildings popping up all over town because they feel that City Hall is totally powerless and meekly bow to developers. I was raised in a region where many towns are called New town of this or that. New compared to towns going back several centuries B.C. that grew haphazardly, while these new ones were planned and built within a relatively short time in the Middle Ages. After the Second World War European and Asian towns that had been wiped out were rebuilt according to the diktats of various national governments. In other words there is in many other places a history of towns being built anew or drastically renovated according to the wishes of a political power that believed it was working for the common good. Developers had to follow strict rules or let someone else do it. But here developers — with the bestintentionsintheworldIamsure — run amok. They hide their plans from other developers and from the city, and there isn’t any concern whatsoever about how good and livable the city at large will be.

Christmasmarketfocusesonfoods COMMUNITY CALENDAR

with Sandra Thomas

DOWNTOWN The Vancouver Christmas Market at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza opens Nov. 29 and I’ll make a prediction here — it’s going to rain. I’ve been at opening night the past two years in a row and it couldn’t have rained any harder. But the rain didn’t dampen the holiday spirits of the shoppers and families wandering the market sipping hot chocolate and warm apple cider while listening to carolers and riding the carousel. (Are you feeling festive yet?) This year’s market has an increased emphasis on food, including steckerlfisch from Captain Randy’s Seafood — a traditional Bavarian beer garden specialty with fish on a stick marinated and grilled until smoky and crispy. But if fish doesn’t scream Christmas to you, check out the treats from Levni Chocolates. The handmade chocolates include flavours such as Blue Moon (blue cheese chocolate), Smoking Hearts (applewood smoked chocolate) and Brunette Bangle (curry and coconut). The market has a German theme so the D-Original Sausage Haus booth, which features traditional Bavarian offerings, is right at home. The sausages, made by fifth-generation sausage maker Drew Driessen, are the same found in several of the city’s favourite gastropubs such as The Flying Pig and Bitter Tasting Room. Of course you also have to try Driessen’s Leberkaes, a Bavarian meatloaf served on a fresh, crusty bun. Then there’s the kartoffelpuffer from Hurricane Potatoes, a deep-fried potato pancake served with a side of applesauce. Finally, The Soup Meister with executive Chef Ralf Dauns turns his talent to traditional German soups, including comforting potato and bacon and hearty lentil and sausage. The

market runs from Nov. 29 to Dec. 24. For more information visit vancouverchristmasmarket.com.

OLYMPIC VILLAGE There are still a few table spaces left for vendors or individuals who wish to sell their homemade holiday crafts and artisan goods at the debut craft fair in the Salt Building at the Olympic Village, Dec. 15 and 16. The event will host more than 150 local vendors and is expected to draw thousands of residents with a promise of live entertainment and fun activities, such as face painting and a visit from Santa. Great Canadian Craft is showcasing artisans offering handmade crafts to locally inspired cuisine. All attendees are encouraged to support the food bank with a donation of a canned food item at the fair. Discount online tickets are available on their website. For tickets and last-minute applications visit greatcanadiancraft.jimdo.com.

YALETOWN The Urban Artisan Craft Fair for the Urban Christmas Shopper takes place the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre Nov. 24 and 25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Artisans, artists and craftspeople will offer items ranging from toys and clothing for the toddler in the family, to knitwear and jewelry for the adults. Don’t miss out on detailed home accents, pet paraphernalia and “perfect funky” gifts for your friends. There’s also a special kids’ craft table in the Great Hall. Admission is $1.

Holding court atWoodward’s

ZOE LI

F

or many people, the basketball court in the Woodward’s atrium is a place they pass through on their way to somewhere else, while for others, the court is the destination. Various theatre, music and cultural festivals have been held in there, as well as a number of political rallies and advocacy-based events. In the evenings, the court attracts basketball players, martial artists and break dancers who meet regularly to practice and perform. People come to the court for so many different reasons that they do not readily appear as a defined group. Their interests are so diverse that often the only thing they have in common is their destination. When people think about Woodward’s, the first image that comes to

mind is the iconic red W revolving in the sky. But there is something else to watch — the basketball court on the ground floor, a half court of concrete in the shape of a circle. In contrast to the brick walkways throughout the complex, the polished concrete floor shines, reflecting overhead and storefront lights, turning the court into a stage. Stan Douglas’ billboard-sized photo mural of a staged scene representing the 1971 Gastown Riot, installed overhead, serves as a fitting backdrop for human movement on the court. Last year, Occupy Vancouver held its first general meeting in the atrium, and to this day it is still the biggest group I have seen on the court. People streamed in from all over the city to rally and to organize the occupation of the Vancouver Art Gallery. News cameras and smartphones broadcast images and rally cries of the assembly to the world. It was the early days of the global Occupy movement, and the atmosphere of the court was electric. For over two years, a Brazilian capoeira club has met weekly on the court. They always bring a stereo and they train as a group or in pairs, kicking and tumbling, to the sound of song and beats. Occasionally, Indio, the leader, sings in Portuguese and plays the berimbau, a four-foot tall. single

string musical bow. The capoeira club at practice is a familiar sight and its members, along with other groups who meet regularly, set the rhythm and pulse of the court. Last month, an urban farmer’s market was held in the atrium for the first time. Andrea Potter, a chef and nutritionist, gave five-minute demonstrations at her table on how to make lacto-fermented pickled vegetables, in other words, how to pickle without vinegar or canning. She told us that fermentation adds nutritional value, and eating pickles with each meal helps digestion. We learned a simple lesson about pickles that could improve our quality of life. It is no surprise that people from outside the neighbourhood come here, but what can be surprising is what some do when they arrive. An activist, a martial artist and a chef, each person comes to the court for a different purpose. I have lived at Woodward’s for three years, and it does not matter to me which neighbourhood people come from. I am curious about what they do when they come to mine. When they step into the ring, they are part of the community, and even if they stay for only awhile, they have my attention. Zoe Li writes about life within a one mile radius of Woodward’s and keeps the blog woodwardsmile.com.

A.R.T. uses motion to lengthen the muscles, while the scarred tissue is held in place, thus gradually breaking down the scar tissue to be absorbed into the body’s blood stream. The body will then lay down new muscle fibres, in the proper alignment for the body’s health. A.R.T. enables Dr. Armstrong to treat a variety of conditions beyond the spine, allowing her to take a full body approach to your health.

Explore hiking trails

Local website vancouvertrails.com offers a plethora of walking and hiking trail information, with options for every level of hiker. Grab some raingear, sensible footwear and a chic umbrella, and make a day of it. Panoramic mountain top views, tranquil lakes, thick west coast rain forests, beautiful waterfalls, and breath taking alpine scenery are just a few of the many spectacular outdoor experiences along the hiking trails near Vancouver.

beautiful scenery that Vancouver has to offer. Vancouver Trails has a range of trails from easy to difficult, from half day to full day hikes, each divided amongst several regions and each with their own unique terrain. Start planning your outdoor adventure by viewing the website’s list of trails, or use the regional map as a reference point to where each hike is located. For example: Located on the west side of the city of Vancouver, the Pacific Spirit Regional Park (shown, above) offers a network of trails contained in more than 750 hectares of forest. The trails in the park are popular with local residents and accessible yearround. It’s a 10-kilometre walk with minimal elevation, cleared paths and – for bonus points, is dog-friendly and easily accessible by transit. The best way to see the park is to view the park map and determine your own route. However, following the most common route will take you on a three-hour trip through much of the forest. A number of ski areas near Vancouver offer trails and guided tours for snowshoers. Trek on pristine trails at Cypress Mountain or explore the developed snowshoe parks at Grouse

Light Therapy Devices for SAD

Seasonal affective LUCIA SAD disorder (SAD) is a LIGHT/ALARM type of clinical depression that regularly occurs in the winter, with normal mood in the summer. Light therapy is an effective and safe treatment for SAD, according to Vancouver Coastal Health Director, Dr. Raymond W. Lam.

There are now many light therapy devices available on the market making claims about light treatment, but light therapy devices are not well regulated in Canada. Therefore, it is wise to be cautious about recommending light therapy devices, he says. Lam recommends fluorescent light boxes over lamps because they have been extensively tested with the greatest evidence for effectiveness in scientific studies Dr. Lam and team comprise the Mood Disorders Centre, UBC Hospital. Go to UBCmood.ca for more information.

Because light therapy may be harmful to people with certain medical conditions (for example, eye disease), you should see your doctor first, Lam recommends.

CELESTE & JESSE FOREVER

The Sheepdogs were the first band in the world to ever grace the cover of Rolling Stone without being signed to a major record label. This movie follows that heady experience for the Saskatoon-based rockers, and the pressure to live up to the hype with their first major label album release. Sun Dec. 2 | 8pm | WCC

Keira Knightley gives a career-best performance as the famed Russian mother and wife who scandalizes Russian aristocrats by carrying on a passionate affair with a young officer.

Julia Stiles heads an ensemble cast, as two couples meet after years of estrangement and resentments based on status and success bubble up to the surface. Based on an offBroadway play, this film crackles with explosive tension, reminiscent of Roman Polanski’s Carnage.

Another Julia Stiles ensemble piece about couples meeting for brunch for the umpteenth time, only on this particular Sunday, terrorists have detonated a smart bomb in the downtown core, and our argumentative couples must seal themselves in their house while awaiting what may be imminent death. A dark satirical comedy. Fri Nov. 30 | 6.15pm | MP Sun Dec. 2 | 2:45pm | RT

A nerdy guy gets upset when his girlfriend starts secretly dating his superhero alter-ego, without realizing that they are the same guy. With the government having lost confidence in the superheroes’ ability to fight crime and protect the public, it’s enough to make any man of special powers feel insecure. Fri Nov. 30 | 6.30pm | RT

Written by an ex-advisor to the White House, this is a searing expose of the behind the scenes dirty dealings that go into winning an election campaign. Rob Lowe plays the cynical spin-doctor, taken aback when a bonafide altruist confronts him, a doctor who wants to become a gubernatorial candidate in order to make the world a better place.

A faux doc that starts off as an innocuous diary of a summer job spent with traveling carnies, then becomes something far more substantial when dark secrets from the past are revealed, leading to a lengthy and searingly honest lovemaking scene between a man in his 50s and an African-Quebecoise half his age. Not soon forgotten. (Subtitled) Sat Dec. 1 | 7.30pm | RT Sun Dec. 2 | 7:30pm | RT

This trio of tales follows Jamaicans who have been deported back to Jamaica after committing crimes in Canada, the US and the UK.

In 1971, the government published the first ever Royal Commission on the Status of Women, and this film by Karen Cho updates the file to the present day, measuring the advances and setbacks in such areas as reproductive freedoms, childcare, spousal and workplace abuse, etc. Another provocative NFB social issue doc.

Two kinds of local chestnuts: edible and toxic PRUNE YOUR WISTERIA FREQUENTLY TO PRODUCE MORE FLOWERS

M

ANNE MARRISON

y mother picked a whole lot of chestnuts off the front lawn this year in Kerrisdale. Are they in fact edible? I have been told that our variety that grows here is not. Danna de Groot, via email

Two different chestnut spe-

cies grow here. One kind is edible, the other is poisonous. The toxic kind (the Horse Chestnut) is the one that is most frequently grown here and it’s very likely this is the one your mother picked. The horse chestnut has very large leaves composed of five leaflets attached by

short stems to one sturdy main stalk. The nuts tend to be rounded and there is usually (though not invariably) one nut in each spiny case. Horse chestnuts are definitely unsafe. They have been known to cause nausea, diarrhea, loss of co-ordination, weakness, paralysis and at times even death.

WHERE WILLINGDON, LOUGHEED & MAGIC SLEIGHS MEET. SANTA HAS ARRIVED AT BRENTWOOD TOWN CENTRE. Experience the magic of the Holidays with Santa. From November 17 to December 24, make this season one to remember with a keepsake visit and photo you will cherish forever.

The edible kind is called the sweet chestnut. This has oval leaves with serrated sides. Each leaf is on its own stalk. The top of the nuts is pointed and often one side is flat while the other is rounded. Frequently two or more nuts share space in one spiny capsule. ••• We have a very healthy 10-year-old wisteria, which grows plenty of foliage but only produces two or three blooms each year. It faces west and is growing over an arbor. We have tried fertilizing, extra watering, less watering and hard pruning all with the same result. How can we help the plant produce more flowers. Theresa O’Connor, via email

Quite a few gardeners have problems getting wisteria to bloom. I wonder if yours gets enough sun. Just because it’s facing west doesn’t mean it gets abundant sun. Are tall trees or tall buildings in the way turning what should be full sun into partial sun? There’s often delay in getting a wisteria to flower, but six years is usually the longest you can expect if your wisteria was grown from cuttings. Seed-grown plants can wait even 10 to 12 years. I wonder if you bought the plant yourselves or inherited it when you bought your home. What is under your control is fertilizing. High nitrogen fertilizer is definitely

to be avoided because this encourages the vine to produce even more leaves, stems and suckers than it would normally. It could be your soil has become overly rich from the fertilization you’ve already done. Many gardeners prune wisteria, not only hard but also very frequently. It’s not uncommon to find them pruning long, new whippy growth and suckers once a month in mild winters. Once the pergola or arbor is covered, they keep cutting the young growth back so the wisteria continues to fit into the space it’s been given. In late winter, the future flower buds will be the round, fat ones. The vegetative buds are thin and pointed. I think your chances of getting more flowers are good since you already have a few. ••• I have a lovely pink peony in my back garden that is over-run by eight very tall Asiatic lilies. Is it too late this fall to dig the lilies up and replant them? Diana, via email

It’s much safer to replant your Asiatic lilies in the spring. If a severe cold snap came along in November, your bulbs could suffer badly if they’d just been transplanted. Anne Marrison is happy to answer gardening questions. Send them to her via amarrison@shaw.ca.

It appears MARGARET ATWOOD can’t get enough of Vancouver. After several appearances at the Vancouver Writers Fest this fall, the famed Canadian author is back to lecture the adoring masses on WRITING THE FUTURE. Presented by The Terry Project Global Speaker Series, ATWOOD, the author of several books of “speculative fiction” will explore “whether or not one can write about ‘the future,’ and why prophecy is dodgy.” We’re hoping she dresses up as a Martian. It all takes place Nov. 22, 8 p.m. at UBC’s Chan Centre for Performing Arts. For tickets and more information, go to terry.ubc.ca.

oyal, possibly drunk, readers of Kudos and Kvetches may recall last spring we wrote about a particularly dark night of the soul where we contemplated buying our dad a metal detector for Father’s Day. He had requested the Bounty Hunter 2200 from his spawn to honour the gift of life he had bestowed upon us. “And not the Bounty Hunter 1100 — that one’s a total piece of crap,” he graciously informed us. It was a difficult decision, because although we wanted to make our father happy, we also imagined him trudging along the crowded beaches, parks and playing fields of our childhood searching for trinkets and getting into arguments with strangers who might take offence to a large man with a metal detector stomping across their beach towel or picnic blanket. But in the end we relinquished and put our brother on the trail. Since he is the middle child, he not surprisingly purchased the piece of crap Bounty Hunter 1100 from Canadian Tire, which was all out of the far superior Bounty Hunter 2200. On Father’s Day, we presented our dad with the option of accepting our gift of the less than optimal Bounty Hunter 1100 or taking a rain check. He blunt-

ly said no to the gift and then reiterated that the Bounty Hunter 1100 was a piece of crap. We then took him out to lunch and after a few months assumed the metal detector was off the table and might make a good Christmas gift if it ever became available again. But honestly, we kind of forgot about it. That was until our dad emailed us last week. And since the subject line of the email read “father’s day” instead of one of the dozens of forwarded jokes he sends us every week, we decided to read it. Apparently, unlike his selfish children, our dad had not forgotten about the metal detector, which must have haunted him night after night like the ghosts of lost coins, candy wrappers and jewelry awaiting rescue in the ground. Here’s what he wrote, word for word: “Well Crappy Tire finally had the right metal detector on sale again so I bought one. With tax it came to $167.99, divided by three equals $56 each. If I find anything good I will let you all know. Cheers, Dad.” On top of that, he also took a picture of his new baby lying across his dining room table, which for some reason had a pink doily-style tablecloth on it. What can we say, he’s a Renaissance Man. So now we have to deposit $56 into our father’s bank account, although part of us is seriously thinking about getting it all in coins and then burying it in his backyard for him to find. k&k@vancourier.com Twitter: @KudosKvetches

SINKING OF TITANIC PERFORMED AT AQUATIC CENTRE... BRING YOUR SWIMSUIT

STATE OF THE ARTS

ictoria’s Aventa Ensemble once played The Sinking of the Titanic in a lighthouse. “They were all up in the spiral staircase,” said Jordan Nobles, artistic director of Redshift Music Society. “That’s when I actually first heard about Aventa.” Now Redshift is bringing the group to Vancouver for the first time, Dec. 4. Aventa Ensemble will perform British composer Gavin Bryars’ haunting 1969 masterpiece at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre. “We keep doing concerts in outlandish places like the atrium of the library or the rotunda of the Vancouver Art Gallery,” Nobles said. “I was drawn to the aquatic centre and went wow, I wonder what music would sound like in here with musicians up on the dive towers… That’s the plan, anyway.” Now Nobles is encouraging listeners to arrive with swimsuits and towels to experience The Sinking of the Titanic while floating in the pool. “I want to keep putting my audience in different places, different rooms, different venues and play music for them and have them experience the venue in a different way,” he said. “When’s the last time you’ve heard an orchestra or, in this case,

a chamber orchestra, while you were floating in water?” With a 90-minute program, water-lovers might not want to slip into their swimsuits until after intermission to avoid getting too pruney. The concert will commemorate the 100 years since the supposedly unsinkable British passenger liner collided with an iceberg on its first voyage, resulting in the deaths of more than 1,500 of its 2,223 passengers. Bryars drew inspiration for the Sinking of the Titanic from reports that the ship’s musicians remained on the deck, playing their instruments as the liner dropped into the depths of the sea. The piece merges recordings of survivors describing the Titanic’s final moments with a hymn-based composition. In keeping with the 11year-old Redshift Music Society’s focus on bringing the music of contemporary Canadian composers to the public through unique musical events, The Sinking of the Titanic starts with new instrumental works by local composers Nobles, Giorgio Magnanensi and Jennifer Butler, who toured the watery facility to help get their creative juices flowing. Nobles describes his musical work as a floating, ambient piece. Each musician will be given individual melodic material that they will perform in their own time, responding to their colleagues and the venue. Magnanensi will mix video projections with electronic music and the reverberations of the ensemble. Unfortunately, the lights will need to be bright enough for the lifeguards to scan the pool’s waters. “I have lifeguards at a con-

Theatre productions do Dickens and Dancing

T

his woman would be such a riot at a party. The star of Dickens’ Women, Miriam Margolyes is a little gnome of a woman, barely five feet tall, bosomy and with a froth of silvery white curls framing a merry, almost cherubic, face. At just over 70, she has more sparkle in her eyes than a warehouse full of Waterford crystal, more mischief in her smile than a kid with a pocketful of firecrackers. And, wow, does she know her Dickens. I may never have read a Dickens novel cover to cover; a half-page description of a wart probably did me in. But I might just give Dickens another try after spending an evening with this British actress whose impressive bio includes the Order of the British Empire in 2002 for her services to drama. Margolyes makes a clear distinction: Dickens, the writer, was brilliant; Dickens, the man, was not very nice — a misogynist, amongst other faults. She mocks his oft-repeated glorification of young women with bright eyes, bouncing curls, blushing complexions and sweet natures — all of whom turn out to be 17. “I find them all rather icky,” she says, twinkling all over. Don’t worry if you’re not up on your Dickens. Solo performer and co-writer (with director Sonia Fraser), Margolyes provides context for each of the characters that she so lovingly crafts and she connects many of them to Dickens’ own history. Highlight of the evening is an extended scene from Oliver Twist. Margolyes, as Mr. Bumble, looks like a fat toad with a lecherous leer as he woos simpering, giddy Mrs. Corney. “Oh, Mr. Bumble, I shall scream,” Mrs. Corney cries in feigned outrage as Mr. Bumble attempts a kiss. “I love doing this scene,” Margolyes confesses, “because it combines sexual and economic greed in the same scene.” Still bubbling over with merriment at 70-odd years, just imagine Margolyes at 17. Dickens would have been enraptured. —reviewed by Jo Ledingham

DICKENS’ WOMEN

At the Cultch until Dec. 1 Tickets: 604-251-1363 thecultch.com

••• Have you ever noticed the similarity between Dancing at Lughnasa and The Glass Menagerie? In both, a man (the narrator) imagines revisiting his past; standing to one side, he looks back into the family home with affection mixed with guilt at having abandoned his sister(s). In Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, Tom left his mother Amanda and pathologically shy, club-footed sister Laura. In Irish writer Brian Friel’s play, Michael (Alen Dominguez) walked out on his mother and her four spinster sisters leaving them to fight poverty and the joyless rigidity of the Irish Catholic Church. Dancing at the pagan harvest festival, the Lughnasa, is forbidden but oh, how Maggie (Courtney Shields), Agnes (Georgia Beaty), Michael’s unmarried mother Chris (Emma Johnson) and Rose (Pippa Johnstone) would love to hoist their skirts and dance with the abandon of their Ballybeg neighbours. But Kate (Tracy Schut), the eldest, puts a stop to any thoughts of dancing.

Miriam Margolyes holds court in the one-woman show Dickens’ Women at the Cultch until Dec. 1.

In a time-honoured tradition of Irish drama, Gerry (Matt Reznek), a charming scoundrel drops into the Mundy sisters’ lives then drops out again, leaving behind only broken promises. As a counterpoint to Catholicism comes Michael’s Uncle Jack (Kenton Klassen), a disgraced priest recently returned from Uganda. Sent to convert villagers, he has, instead, enthusiastically embraced paganism. Ballybeg’s parish priest makes sure that Kate, the main breadwinner, loses her teaching position as if she is somehow tainted by brother Jack. Dancing at Lughnasa is not all gloom but the pervasive mood is bittersweet touched by Michael’s regret at having moved on as, he says, “young men do.” —JL

almonds, black beans and parmesan topped with wild mushrooms, B.C. cheddar and Luke’s signature southern-fried, beer-battered dill pickles and jalapeno peppers. We were also able to try the pickles and jalapenos as a side and to call them addicting would be an understatement. But with stop three in mind, I attempted to keep my pickle and pepper consumption to a minimum prior to heading to Whet Kitchen Bar on Granville Island. I was starting to feel pretty full, but surprisingly when I saw the juicy burger created by chef Peter Gray placed in front of me, my appetite returned full force. The Whet Burger is an indulgent serving of Alberta-grown beef highlighted with red pepper relish and “secret spices.” The burger had a Mediterranean flavour that distinguished it from any other I’ve eaten, and not just on this evening. I know from experience there’s an art to making a truly delicious burger and for this challenge these chefs-turned-artisans have outdone themselves.

For youth living on the streets, there is no home for the

holidays...

Vancouver’s problem with homelessness is at an all time high, with many of those with no home of their own being under the age of 24. At the Courier, we decided to provide an opportunity to our readers to give a little cheer and kindness to the youth on our streets this holiday season.

itting at Max’s Burgers on West Eighth Avenue at Cambie Wednesday night, it was difficult not to devour the entire burger placed in front of me. The Local, as the behemoth has been dubbed by chef Travis Redpath, was not only huge but also covered in some of the finest add-ons a grass-fed burger could aspire to enjoy, including herb-crusted bacon from an Abbotsfordbased pig farm and soft cheddar cheese from the Okanagan — all served up on a brioche bun made in Max’s downstairs bakery. The burger was created for the first-ever Vancouver Foodster Best Burger Challenge, which includes 29 participating restaurants in the city, Richmond, Burnaby, West Vancouver and North Vancouver. Chefs were tasked to dream up the best burgers available on their menus and customers are invited to vote for their favourites until Nov. 30. Vancouver Foodster creator and blogger Richard Wolak is also in the midst of wrapping up the Best Pancake Challenge. Because Max’s was the first stop on the Best Burger Challenge media tour, myself and the other women taking part carefully cut our Local burger in half, saving room for what was to come. That wasn’t the case for most of the men taking part though, and a glance around the table showed empty plates in front of most of them. Carry-out dishes in hand, our small party headed off to stop two on our Best Burger tour, Luke’s Corner Bar, located at the corner of Granville Street and West 14th Avenue. Chef Megan Martin didn’t play it safe for the challenge and took on the competition with a vegetarian burger made up of quinoa, toasted

AAAA GIRLS VOLLEYBALL

Vancouver eliminated The Vancouver city champion David Thompson Trojans was knocked from the Lower Mainland tournament in a disappointing fifth-place finish. The Trojans will not advance to the provincial championships and there will be no Vancouver representative at the AAAA senior girls B.C. championship. Head coach Nelson Yu said stand-out talent Lisa Cheung had a stomach infection and when she took to the court, couldn’t possibly play her best. Killarney came sixth and Van Tech was eliminated in the opening rounds.

AAA GIRLS VOLLEYBALL Little Flower wins big Little Flower Academy hosted Crofton House in the AAA senior girls Lower Mainland volleyball Saturday night for an all-Vancouver championship final. Top-seeded Little Flower swept through the tournament without dropping a single set and beat No. 2 Crofton 2-0 for the regional title. Both schools advance to the Provincials along with Point Grey and Carson Graham secondary from North Vancouver. Crofton beat Point Grey to reach the championship match and Point Grey, which entered the tournament as the No. 4 seed, finished third overall in a 2-1 win over Carson Graham. No. 8 Prince of Wales and No. 11 Templeton did not win a game in the 12-team tournament. Little Flower and Crofton co-host the provincial championship Nov. 29 to Dec. 1.

AAA BOYS VOLLEYBALL Griffins second at regionals The Vancouver champion Eric Hamber Griffins worked their to the senior boys AAA volleyball final Thursday night but couldn’t overcome the best team from Burnaby, the Moscrop Panthers. The No. 1 Vancouver team lost in five sets 15-25, 25-12, 25-17, 20-25, 19-17 to the No. 1 Burnaby team on their home court at Moscrop secondary. Hamber’s six-foot-five setter Aleks Borisov has played the second half of the season with a lower back injury and did not offer the offensive attack he favours. John Dela Cruz came up big and led Hamber with 14 kills. Richmond secondary defeated the No. 2 Vancouver Magee Lions 22-25, 25-18, 19-25, 25-19, 15-10 for third place. Magee finished fourth overall. To qualify for the third-place game, they defeated the No. 3 David Thompson Trojans in four sets to secure a berth at the AAA B.C. provincial championship a first in school history. Hamber, Moscrop, Richmond and Magee will represent the Lower Mainland at the AAA senior boys Provincials Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 in Kelowna.

Recreational and retired professional hockey players alike hope to raise around $300,000 for Vancouver homeless shelters Nov. 23 at UBC.

HOCKEY HELPS THE HOMELESS HAS RAISED $4 MILLION FOR SHELTERS ACROSS CANADA MEGAN STEWART Staff writer

On Friday, Kristy McDonald will slap more shots and take more shifts as a pro hockey player than all of the Vancouver Canucks have so far this NHL season. Of course, there is no NHL season — not yet, at least. But there is something else for recreational players and hockey fans like McDonald, who works downtown and plays on two recreational hockey teams out of Burnaby 8 Rinks. On Nov. 23 at UBC’s Thunderbird Arena, she and 200 other men and women will play in a charity hockey tournament and be treated like pros for the day. Together they aim to raise $300,000 for Vancouver homeless shelters by skating alongside NHL alumni Dave Babych and other retired professionals. “I’m happy to be involved,” she said, adding with a laugh, “and we have the chance to play with some really old alumni.” Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHTH) is a national charity founded in Toronto in 1996 that pampers recreational hockey players and raises money to address homelessness in Canada’s major cities. Players wear customized jerseys, eat as if it’s their job to fuel their body, and have access to a full team of athletic trainers and therapists. This is the fourth Vancouver tournament and the first time for a women’s tournament in the city. Since its modest start 12 years ago, HHTH has raised $4 million for charity, said co-founder Gary Scullion. “We use Canada’s love of the game to create an avenue to raise financial support and awareness for the issue,” he said. The fundraising goal for the Vancouver men’s tournament is the highest in the country. At $240,000, the goal is $40,000 more than Toronto and $150,000 more

than Ottawa. Ewan French, the volunteer director for this city’s tournament, said fundraisers here are tenacious and well-connected but there is also an acute awareness that support is needed in neighbourhoods like the Downtown Eastside. “We have some amazing people on our committee who are well versed in these types of fundraising events and their philosophy is you have to push and you have to ask for more — ask for more and you end up getting more,” he said. “We have certain special people who are not afraid to email [Canucks owner] Francesco Aquilini and ask for $10,000 and get it.” In Vancouver, HHTH works with the First United Church, RainCity Housing, the Lookout Society, Covenant House and the Urban Native Youth Association. “Everyone is educated in this city,” said French, and they see how bad it is.” When she started fundraising for the inaugural women’s tournament, McDonald aimed to raise $600. When she quickly surpassed that mark, she bumped her goal to $750. As of Tuesday morning, she’d raised $1,070 and still counting. mstewart@vancourier.com Twitter: @MHStewart

he B.C. Lions’ stinging 34-29 loss to the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL West Final was long over but many players remained in a deathly silent dressing room. Several remained in their uniforms. Some sat staring off into space, trying to come to grips with an opportunity lost to repeat as Grey Cup champions. Having faced several waves of reporters — and patiently answering their questions with thoughtful, honest answers — Angus Reid began gingerly walking across the room. He winced with each step. “It’s only just begun to hurt,” said the 36year-old centre. “It’s going to hurt for a long time.” It was hard to tell if the Richmond native, who played his high school football for Vancouver College, was talking about the physical pain from the battering he took in the game at B.C. Place Stadium or the emotional hurt of the loss. “I thought we had the team that could do it this year,’’ Reid said about a Lions team that led the CFL with a 13-5 record. “Calgary played very well and we didn’t do enough to win. “It’s going to be one of those tough offseasons. There are regrets.” At the other end of the room receiver Paris Jackson slowly, methodically, stuffed his belongings into a bag. The 32-year-old Vancouver native, who attended Carson Graham high school on the North Shore, knows his career is at a crossroads, maybe even hit a dead end. “I don’t know,’’ Jackson said with a sigh when asked if he will be back next season. “It seems like every year it gets worse and worse for playing time. One of the reasons I came back this year is I believed in us repeating.’’ The 12-6 Stampeders made beating B.C. look easy. Many questions hang over the Lions, and one of the biggest is which players will be back in the spring. “There will be changes on the whole team,” said Reid, who played at Simon Fraser University and joined the Lions in a July 2001 trade from Montreal. “Win or lose, there’s always changes.’’

Veteran CFL centre Angus Reid won his second Grey Cup in 2011.

Jackson, who B.C. picked sixth overall in the 2003 CFL draft, has spent his entire career with the Lions but has seen his role diminished the last couple of years. In 2012 he had just 10 catches for 127 yards. “I don’t know what my future is,’’ said the father of two who has a total 410 catches for 5,660 yards and 31 touchdowns during his 10 years in Vancouver. “It would be nice to be back here. It’s my home. There are a lot of great memories. I want to finish my career here but I don’t know my own destiny.’’ The door looks open for Reid to return next year. “I have to assess how much football I have left in my body and also if there is need for me,’’ he said. Reid will meet with general manager Wally Buono in early January to talk about his future. “He tells me the plan for the team and if I am included,’’ he said. “I have to then decide if I still have enough in my tank to give them what I can.’’ Some of the players can escape the frustration and disappointment of not playing in the Grey Cup by returning to their homes in other parts of Canada or the U.S. For Reid and Jackson it will be a long, cold winter in Vancouver. “The city is so great,’’ said Reid. “It’s not like you are it and it’s negative. You feel the letdown for yourself, your teammates and for the city. It’s much better when you can live here as a champion instead of a team that should have done more.’’ Jim Morris is a veteran reporter who has covered sports for 30 years.
