Judge jails massage therapist

‘Reprehensible’ conduct draws 9 month sentence for sexual assault Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver massage therapist who sexually assaulted one of his patients while telling her his touching was therapeutic has been sent to jail for nine months by a provincial court judge. Judge Doug Moss of the North Vancouver provincial court handed the sentence to David Fierro, 43, telling him his conduct was “reprehensible” and “not to be tolerated.” “There’s a clear power imbalance between yourself and your patients,” Moss told Fierro. “This type of offence carries with it a high level of moral culpability.” Fierro’s family members gasped and sobbed as sheriffs put handcuffs on him. Following a trial earlier this summer, Fierro was found guilty of sexually assaulting the patient during three different treatments at See Other page 5

Sacred fire

TSLEIL-WAUTUTH Nation elder Leonard George prays at a sacred fire celebration held Friday at Wheyah-Wichen (Cates Park). The day of prayer, held on the last day of summer and open to all, reflected on the health of Burrard Inlet and the unity of peoples and faiths.

Paul Jacobs, 53, pleaded guilty to the charge on Sept. 13 in Robson Square provincial court. Jacobs, the sole director and shareholder of a numbered company, was nabbed by the Canada Revenue Agency after failing to report $804,000 in management and consulting fees earned over a six-year period. Between 2003 and 2009, Jacobs’ company provided management and consulting to The Cambie Malone’s Corp. Income earned was deposited directly into a bank account that Jacobs held jointly with his wife. But the income wasn’t reported by either Jacobs or his company. The earnings were discovered by tax officials during a regular GST audit of Cambie Malone, according to spokesman Bradley Alvarez.

THE explosion of digital technology and the ways that personal information is exchanged requires a new set of skills. It is not enough to know how to use new hardware or software. Old and young alike must learn how to stay safe and act appropriately in the ever expanding virtual world.

REDEFINING LITERACY IN A DIGITAL AGE

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

Into the cloud

AT West Vancouver’s Ridgeview elementary school, a class of Grade 7 students sits writing about how they spent their summer.

It sounds like an assignment that 12 year-olds might have been handed 50 years ago — and every September since then. But this class is different. “Let’s ‘clam’ for a second,” says their teacher Cari Wilson, prompting the kids to close their laptop computers halfway. “I want you to go back to your blog page,” she says. “Who is the audience for this blog? How is that different from when you text your friend on your phone?” We’re definitely not in a traditional language arts class anymore. For the next few minutes, Wilson leads the kids through the technical steps of creating a blog and posting comments. Be thoughtful when you comment, Wilson tells them. Don’t be mean. It’s not OK to write “u” for “you” on a blog that anyone can see, she says. Welcome to the brave new world of digital literacy. For the past two years, the West Vancouver school district has pioneered an approach to learning about the online world designed to help kids navigate the digital space they occupy. A key part of the project involves linking all students in grades 4 to 7 on an internal network where they have their own digital presence. “This is the way the world is going,” says Wilson in an interview after class. “Likely any job they have is going to involve digital technology.” As the digital literacy teacher at the elementary school level,

her job is to teach the kids how to function in that digital world “safely and ethically.” Knowing how the online world is similar to the “analog world” in some ways and different in others is “a really important skill for these kids to have,” says Wilson. Garn Kern, the district’s director of instruction for technology and innovation, says the district’s approach to digital literacy has meant a shift from viewing technology as simply a tool to seeing that “it can also be a place.” “That’s what it’s become for our younger generation. It’s a meeting place that’s often unstructured and often without adults,” he says. Connecting students in a network has changed the way both teachers and students look at learning — to something that takes place in a community. “If you’re in my network and you publish a blog post I’m going to see it and I can comment on it,” says Kern. “We want our students to see that the room (of other students and the teacher) is smarter than (just) themselves.” For Grade 7 students Romina Pourmina and Meghan Christensen MacDonald, the “cloud” is a place where they already spend a lot of time. “I’m on Google,” says Meghan. “I’m on Skype. Or Hotmail,” says Romina. “It’s something most preteens do,” she adds. “Just last night I was talking to six people at once. If somebody lives a block away, we’ll still go on Skype.” Game sites like miniclip are popular with their peer group. Romina says she also follows people from reality TV show Dance Moms on Twitter. “I don’t really tweet,” she says. “I just watch their tweets.” While Facebook is supposedly limited to those older than 13,

Romina says she also knows many younger kids who use it. Both girls say they try to be cautious about the online world. They’ve been warned about the dangers of sharing too much information. “People can stalk you . . . they can find out how you get to school,” she says. Like it or not, digital technology is here to stay, says Wilson. “It’s part of everyday life,” she says. “If we ignore that and we don’t teach the kids how to be safe and how to be ethical, they’re either going to be at a disadvantage or they’re going to learn stuff we maybe don’t want them to learn.” Kern describes the West Vancouver school district’s internal network as a “walled garden” approach, where kids can make mistakes and not have that follow them like a digital shadow, the way it would in a public network. “Their world is very different than the world we grew up in,” says Wilson. “When you grew up in the ’60s and ’70s you could do all sorts of stupid things and most people never heard of it.” “Now you do something stupid at a party and someone puts it on Facebook and it’s there forever.” Privacy is a concept that is shifting as more people go online and use social media, says Peter Chow-White, an associate professor in Simon Fraser University’s school of communication. It’s also a concept young generations approach differently than their parents did. At one time, “Privacy was assumed,” says Chow-White. “What you did in your own home was your own business.” But for many people in their teens and early 20s, “They grew up in a world where the default setting is sharing.” Part of that is tied to “an innate need to connect,” says ChowWhite. “We need to share our life experiences.” See Your page 8

Other patients complained From page 1

Steve Nash Fitness World in North Vancouver. The victim, whose name is protected under a court-ordered publication ban, testified Fierro sexually touched her while telling her he was providing treatment for a deviated tailbone. But a massage therapist expert who testified at the trial said the way Fierro touched the woman was outside the bounds of any accepted massage procedure. The victim said Fierro also had inappropriate sexual conversations during the treatment sessions and left her only partially covered by a sheet. Fierro denied the allegations and said the victim fabricated the story, but Moss ruled the victim was more credible. Prosecutor Joanne Verrier told Moss on Wednesday Fierro should receive a jail sentence of up to two years, saying he has a pattern of sexual behaviour towards female patients. In 2006, Fierro was disciplined and entered into an agreement with the College of Massage Therapists to get counselling on appropriate boundaries with patients with after two women complained about him. In a victim impact statement, Fierro’s victim said his actions have left a “deep mental, emotional and financial scar on my life.” “I feel he was very aware of his position of power” and used it to his advantage, the woman wrote.

The woman said she no longer receives any kind of health care treatment from men because she doesn’t trust them and no longer works out at North Vancouver Fitness World even though she has a longstanding membership there. Verrier added Fierro has never expressed any remorse about what he did. Fierro’s defence lawyer Noah Neaman asked the judge to consider not sending Fierro to jail, saying Fierro’s wife and three children are dependent on him. He urged the judge to consider a suspended sentence and lengthy probation term instead. The lawyer said Fierro has already suffered shame and embarrassment, has lost his livelihood and will probably lose his house in North Vancouver. He said Fierro doesn’t have a criminal record. He added friends and former clients describe him as a “devoted family man” as well as a “very spiritual and generous person.” But Moss rejected that, saying a jail sentence was needed to denounce Fierro’s conduct. In addition to the jail sentence, Moss ordered Fierro to serve two years on probation and banned him from providing health care services or massage to any female patient. Fierro resigned as a registered massage therapist the week before he was sentenced, just before the college was to hold a special disciplinary hearing into his conduct.

No helmet, lots of copper Failure to file tax A man who rode through North Vancouver with almost 40 kilograms of stolen copper pipe this week is behind bars thanks to B.C.’s helmet laws, according to police.

The 35-year-old Langley man was riding a bike near North Vancouver’s SeaBus terminal at about 9 a.m. Wednesday when he was approached by an RCMP bike patrol, who had noticed he wasn’t wearing a helmet. As the officers were writing him up a ticket, they “observed a large amount of freshly cut copper pipe sticking out of his backpack and duffle bags,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, a spokesman for the North Vancouver detachment, in a release. “(Since he had) no logical explanation for being in position of the large amount of copper, the male was arrested for possession of stolen property.” The man, who was on probation at the time, is due in court Sept. 27. — James Weldon

returns nets $2K fine

From page 1 Jacobs’ fine is equal to the amount of federal income tax he evaded. He was also given a six-month conditional sentence with conditions to be in his Eagle Harbour home between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Jacobs was also told to complete 20 hours of community work service. The same week, North Vancouver resident Robert Todd Craddock was also fined $2,000 for failing to file tax returns. Craddock, a cinematographer, was sentenced for not filing a personal tax return or a business tax return for Todd Craddock Productions Inc. for 2008. He was also ordered to file outstanding personal and corporate tax returns for 2009 and 2011.

VIEWPOINT Published by North Shore News a division of LMP Publication Limited Partnership, 100-126 East 15th Street, North Vancouver, B.C. V7L 2P9. Doug Foot, publisher. Canadian publications mail sales product agreement No. 40010186.

Two faced S

TEPHEN Harper is once again primed to let clever politics trump good government. The Conservatives plan to introduce fall legislation that will see MPs picking up more of the cost of their relatively generous pensions and waiting longer to collect them. Such legislation would be popular with much of the public who believe the public-sector trough has become gold-plated. The other parties have indicated they too would endorse such a measure. The legislation debated by itself would showcase politicians of all stripes endorsing the reality of the leaner times. That is anathema to Harper. In calculated and slippery fashion, the pension legislation is apparently going to be included in another Tory omnibus bill this fall with measures that the

NDP and Liberals would typically oppose. Of course if they do so, they will in future be branded with the tag of “opposing pension reform.” The Conservatives celebrated the joy of a majority with the recent budget legislation, jamming it full of other measures that had nothing to do with Canada’s finances. Harper does know better. He has said himself that omnibus bills are undemocratic in nature, creating a damned-if-you-do and damned-if-youdon’t voting dilemma for politicians. In 1994, he denounced the omnibus bill proposed by the Liberal government of the day as “what we might call the kitchen sink approach” and asked the Speaker of the House to rule the bill out of order since it violated the spirit of democracy. Does politics excuse hypocrisy?

Dear Editor: I am writing an obituary notice for something that is not dead yet, but will become so Oct. 1. Since the 1950s, this establishment has served customers near the crossroads of Mountain Highway and Main Street, near the entrance to the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing. Combining a hotel, bar, restaurant and in later years also a beer and wine store, it has served North Vancouver well through the years. I am speaking of the Lynnwood. Many, including my own daughter who remarked “it won’t be missed,” feel it represents part of a North Vancouver that isn’t “hip” or “cool” enough in 2012. I beg to differ. For considerably more than half a century, it has provided its patrons with a familiar, comfortable and, most importantly, affordable place to rest, eat, drink and have fun. Its spacious bar area, dance floor, adjoining restaurant and ample free parking were designed in a non-cramped style certainly not typical of today’s planners. Sitting in the restaurant just the other day, I thought to myself how damn nice it was not to have to worry about where I was parked, or for how long. When I dine anywhere near Lonsdale, I can’t truly enjoy my food while worried about being ticketed or towed! As most people are now aware, the North Shore has become a high-end, upscale, watch-what-we-eat type place, where establishments like the Lynnwood don’t truly jive with its residents. What most forget however, is that the “worker bees,” and by that I mean the welders, the dock workers, the carpenters and electricians and those in the automotive industry who still want and need a place such as the Lynnwood to relax and unwind, even if those types no longer live in the immediate area. And what of the truckers, those that bring all our goods and supplies from places afar? The hotel provided them affordable accommodation, food and a place for a beverage in one central location. The site is slated to become “light industrial,” the owners feeling it more profitable going that route than to overhaul an admittedly aging structure. But something will be lost when its doors shut for good at the end of this month. Something doesn’t last more than 50 years by being inconsequential. My daughter enjoys the many fancy eating establishments that dot Marine Drive in

Cheers to the working man’s pub

THE Lynnwood Inn was established in 1934 and has remained a popular blue-collar bar and hotel ever since. North and West Vancouver, but I prefer a place like the Lynnwood, where the pioneer types ate, drank, slept and had fun. It seems more “real” to me. Before the end of the month I’m gonna try to get her to come with me for one last meal there, most likely a time for me to reminisce about a North Vancouver that is quickly disappearing. Heck, we’ll probably have a beer in the pub! Rob Rannard North Vancouver

Inspired teachers tap young imagination

GIFTED teachers are celebrated in story, song and episodes of Glee, but their most important legacy is that their lessons are remembered forever.

They’re the educators who spot something special in you even when it completely eludes your parents. My favourites were always English teachers, because that was my one good subject. Sometimes, however, exceptional instruction can even make a remarkable student out of an inadequate one — or so I’ve been told by Coach Carter, To Sir With Love, and numerous other movies whose goal is emotional uplift. While being cool shouldn’t be a prerequisite for teachers, kids can sure benefit from the input of instructors who at least recall their own youthful foibles. Such a fellow was my best teacher in high school, a tall, pale, dark-eyed man with longish black hair and beard who went by the name of Laurence Priebe. “Mr. Priebe” had a sarcastic spirit and a renegade, romantic, Heathcliff air that never dissipated, even when he was picking his nose in class. The best thing about him was his imagination.

were all over the classroom and in the hall. These were pre-CSI and Google days, so we wandered vaguely about the bland space trying to make mountains out of molehills and then wrote down our individual versions of what had happened. At the end of the class, Mr. Priebe informed us that, just as there was no real murder, he had set out no clues. We’d just made them up, and that was A-OK. We were slated to have our first encounter with Shakespeare in Mr. Priebe’s class. Before we dove in, he got us talking about a news event. It seemed that our then-Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau, was an epileptic and had collapsed in the House of Commons during an international crisis. Could he still be trusted to govern? Should he be ousted, even against his will? How far should the House go to get rid of a leader whose health issues suggested that he might not be up to the task? We engaged in a teenagerish debate on the topic until Mr. Priebe had had enough of our simplistic logic and inflamed retorts. Actually, he said, no such collapse had occurred and that it was Julius Caesar, the Emperor of Rome, who was thought to have had “the failing sickness,” a euphemism for epilepsy.

Going Coastal

Kate Zimmerman One sunny autumn day, Mr. Priebe led us grade nines outdoors to the field hockey pitch to act out Lewis Carroll’s nonsense poem Jabberwocky (I excelled as the “frumious Bandersnatch”). He must only have been a few years out of university himself, and what he liked most was getting us to defy our inhibitions. The adolescent persona is a fragile thing, still under construction, and he made us understand that it was fine to keep the kid in us. Another day, we arrived at our classroom to find one of our fellow students on the floor, covered in ketchup. It was Anthony Tross — I had a crush on him at the time so I remember that tragic discovery well. Our mission was to solve the crime by looking for clues that Mr. Priebe told us

Might that explain the dramatic events that transpired in Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar? With that introduction to the Bard, we were putty in his hands, memorizing characters’ speeches to bring the play to life in the classroom. I remember practising lines with my best friend Rebecca while in the ski-hill lineup, so fascinated with Julius Caesar (and Mr. Priebe) were we. In Grade 10, our teacher introduced us to the classic poem Lord Randall. You may have studied it yourself. The Anglo-Scottish ballad, whose author is unknown, features a mother asking her son a series of questions that begin, “O where ha’e you been, Lord Randall my son? O where ha’e ye been, my handsome young man?” His answers eventually lead to the conclusion that

he has been poisoned by his “true love.” This story is so compelling that it has inspired musical versions, including Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall” — which contains the lines “Where have you been/my blue-eyed son/ Where have you been/my darling young one?” — and made appearances in J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, among other literary works. It was not dramatic enough for Mr. Priebe, however. He prodded us not to accept the obvious answer that Lord Randall’s sweetheart was to blame. Why would she do such a thing, after all? What else might have made him so weary? By the end of the class we’d convinced ourselves that Lord Randall had lost his blood to Scottish

woodland vampires, at which point Mr. Priebe informed us that no, Lord Randall’s sweetheart had just poisoned him and we were way too easily led. That, by the way, was 40 years ago. I’m sorry to report that Mr. Priebe died young. I wish every student at least one teacher with his fierce intelligence and determined joie de vivre. kate@katezimmerman.ca

That connection — or lack of it — also has real impact on our lives, he says. Kids aren’t the only ones connecting online. Professionals looking for a boost in the business world often post their profiles on LinkedIn. People who work in entertainment or media are frequently expected to cultivate a Twitter following. Chow-White says he’s heard of a requirement to “tweet” even being written into employment contracts. “In some fields you need to be on social media to exist,” he says. Unlike previous face-to-face interactions, though, social media has become “a mash-up of social life,” says Chow-White, where people must present themselves to multiple audiences at once. In real life, there’s usually only one audience at a time and “How we talk to our friends is different than how we talk to our parents or employers,” he says. “But in social media, it’s very different.” While navigating through that maze, management of privacy settings has also become “an enormous task,” says Chow-White. Most people don’t have the time or inclination to constantly check those. “It’s like saying ‘Why didn’t you read the entire terms of use before you clicked it?’” he says. “Nobody does.” The result is that most people have a digital profile that is more extensive than they realize. Social media sites and applications that run on them sell information to third parties in order to market their products to specific audiences. Sometimes social media sites have been reluctant to admit to that practice. A report by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada this year into the Canadian teen-oriented site Nexopia concluded the site didn’t tell users it was sharing their personal information with advertisers. It also hadn’t told users that it kept any friends’ email addresses provided and that it wasn’t removing users’ information even when they supposedly deleted their accounts. “We don’t know the extent of what’s happening in those databases,” says Chow-White. “They’re sorting people.” Denis Gagnon, a West Vancouver private investigator with a growing practice in the area of cyber crime, worries about that. “It’s like opening your front door. Would you let anybody come into your apartment? Probably not,” says Gagnon, a former RCMP officer who runs the company BCS Investigations. Online, however, “They let them come into their life and have a burrito.” As an investigator, Gagnon says he loves Facebook. “We ‘befriend’ people on a daily basis,” he says. “They have no idea who were are. “Then they’ll post photos of their house, their family and their car, saying ‘I’m away for three weeks on vacation.’” Because the Internet is faceless, you never really know who you’re dealing with, says Gagnon. “I can go to the Internet and call myself Jane Doe, register a new Gmail address and I’m in business.” Understanding that what is presented online may not be what it appears to be is a big part of the digital literacy that’s now taught to students. Wilson tries to stress to her classes that just because someone posts it online doesn’t mean it’s true. She likes to point to a site now well known among digital literacy educators that describes the endangered “Pacific tree octopus” in detail. “The site looks real,” she says. But of course it’s a fake. See Phishing page 9

Phishing frauds often not reported

From page 8

One of the top five listings that pops up under “Martin Luther King” on search engines is actually run by a white supremacist group, she adds. It’s important for kids to learn they often can’t take what they see online at face value. “You have to fact check,” look for multiple sources and assess the sources, she tells them. It’s a lesson that many adults could stand to learn, says Const. Dave Townsend, who works in the economic crime unit of the North Vancouver RCMP. “Phishing” scams, where victims get sent emails making them bogus offers or asking for personal information, are common — especially on the North Shore, where scammers often target seniors. Often victims will get an officiallooking email supposedly from a bank or other legitimate organization. One recently making the rounds ostensibly came from the Canada Revenue Agency, investigating people for tax evasion. It asked victims to confirm their identity by supplying personal information. One North Vancouver woman decided to go public three years ago after she learned about scams the hard way. She was fooled by a letter from “Hotmail” asking for her password and other details. Scammers then logged into her account and started sending letters out to everyone in her address book, asking for money to cover an “emergency.” Most victims aren’t so open. “One of the huge problems with any kind of fraud is under-reporting,” says Townsend. Most people are too embarrassed to admit they’ve been duped. Some have been taken in after giving over too much personal information on questionable

websites like Backpage or AshleyMadison.com, says Gagnon. Others who’ve lost money don’t bother to report it because they figure it won’t help them get their cash back. They’re usually right, says Townsend. But by reporting the fraud, it allows antifraud investigators a means to get the sites shut down so they don’t scam other people. Instead of deleting a phishing email, Townsend says a better idea is to forward it to the Canadian anti-fraud centre at info@ antifraudcentre.ca. There, investigators mine the email for data that will sometimes connect it to other frauds. Similar scams are also conducted by cellphone and text messages. In some cases, cyber criminals will redirect computer users away from legitimate websites to “spoofed” sites that they control. Some victims on the North Shore have lost massive amounts of money in online scams. “We’ve had cases in North Vancouver that are well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars,” says Townsend. One retired health-care worker lost $129,000. “It’s heartbreaking,” says Townsend. “His pension is gone.” “That’s not even the worst case,” he said — that clocks in with a loss of more than $500,000. Townsend said he doesn’t see those duped online as any more gullible than people duped in other more traditional ways — such as bogus stock market investments. “A lot of people invested in Bre-X too,” he says. “People have lost a lot of their skepticism.” Depending on what information they get, cyber criminals can use what victims divulge to See Online page 11

steal their identity and run up their credit. “It takes a long time to fix your credit if people take your identity and say they are you,” says Gagnon. In one of the North Shore’s more notorious cases, a smooth talking con man named Kaymar Jahanrakshan bought a fleet of luxury cars — including two worth more than $110,000 from a North Vancouver dealership — on fake international credit. Most cyber criminals are not such high rollers. More likely, they are drug addicts looking for quick money to feed their habit. “We know of at least one drug dealer who’s switched over to fraud,” said Townsend. “He said ‘Nobody is trying to kill me anymore, and there’s enough money for everybody.’” Once criminals have your information, they’ll often sell it to others. “You can buy NEWS photo Mike Wakefield reams of the data online,” says Townsend.

Argyle Gardens Wrap-Up Party

Original gardener Juanita Allan Community members involved with Argyle Gardens wrapped up their growing season with a party at the foot of 15th Street in West Vancouver Sept. 17. The growers have a rich history at this location, the ďŹ rst of its kind on the North Shore. The house that originally stood on the property was relocated and the land was acquired by the District of West Vancouver. Juanita Allan, a friend of the locationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeowners, immediately went to district hall after the house was moved and reserved her garden plot. That was 18 years ago and she and others are still digging in. There are 28 beds on the site at an annual cost of $80.

MARTIN and Esther Kafer get some training in on the Grouse Grind in the lead-up to their participation in the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s Ascent for Alzheimer’s. Set to be the oldest couple to reach Mt. Kilimanjaro’s summit, the Kafers encourage community members to likewise support the society by participating in next weekend’s Mt. Kilimanjaro Grouse Grind for Alzheimer’s. Participants will be tasked with completing the same distance as the Kafers but on the local mountain instead.

HEALTH NOTES page 15 AWESOME SUMMER Columnist Dave Norona reflects on his top experiences in summer 2012. page 16

TACKLING the Grouse Grind seven times in a single day: That’s the challenge participants in an inaugural fundraiser will face in an effort to raise funds and awareness in support of B.C. families living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

According to a written statement, the event, dubbed the Mt. Kilimanjaro Grouse Grind for Alzheimer’s, is being held on the North Vancouver mountain Sunday, Sept. 30 and is being held simultaneously with a long-running Alzheimer Society of B.C. fundraiser, Ascent for Alzheimer’s. Among the people participating in the ascent up Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro this year are accomplished hikers Martin, 85, and Esther Kafer, 84. The Vancouverites, who have tackled more than 500 mountains and are credited with approximately 75 first-

ascents in the B.C. coastal mountain range, are interested in supporting the Alzheimer Society as well as honouring Martin’s sister Etta’s diagnosis with the disease. They’re also hoping to be the world’s oldest couple to hike the African peak. As Martin and Esther summit Mt. Kilimanjaro, local residents are encouraged to hike the equivalent distance locally on the Grouse Grind, either as an individual or as part of a team, completing seven or more trips up the trail. Participants are encouraged to fundraise a minimum of $700 for the society in support of its programs and services. For more information, to make a donation or to register as an individual or as part of a team (with friends, family or colleagues), visit www.hikemkgg.com.

Local residents to rally for recovery Sept. 30

TWO North Shore residents are among the organizers of the inaugural Recovery Day, being marked in Vancouver Sept. 30.

Bowen Island Orchard Recovery Center’s AnnMarie McCullough, director of communications, and Lorinda Strang, executive director, are among the individuals who’ve played an integral role in having the journey of individuals in recovery from alcohol, drug and other substance dependencies celebrated officially by the City of Vancouver, according to a written statement. Mayor Gregor Robinson proclaimed Sept. 30 as Recovery Day and the women, in conjunction with Vancouver resident David Berner, executive director of the Drug Prevention Network of

Canada, are presenting a rally and march to mark the occasion at the Vancouver Art Gallery beginning at noon. All community members are invited to attend the event, which has been well-supported by the recovery community. The United States government recognizes September as Recovery Month, says McCullough, in the statement. Realizing Canada has no equivalent, she and her peers decided to put the public celebration together. The event is intended to shift the focus from the problem of addiction to the solution — recovery — she adds. A number of local dignitaries will be in attendance.

Summer 2012 filled to the brim with epic adventures ONE of the best things about living on the North Shore is the fabulous seasons we get to experience.

No other place on the planet has a backyard like ours, which allows you to play outside year-round with such diversity. This summer has been epic with tons of sunny days and hot weather. Kim and I hit up Nitinaht Lake on Vancouver Island, as we do each year, and kite surfed our brains out. This magical lake draws a thermal wind each morning and is a mecca for windaddicted windsurfers and kiteboarders. The best thing about Nitinaht is the remote wilderness setting, which means only those who want it most go there and the energy of those people is awesome. This year our friend Chris made a giant hot tub in a massive fallen cedar log, complete with its own heating system via 60 feet of copper coil pipe through a raging fire. Chris also built a cedar waterslide that sends you careening into the river to cool off. We spent several weeks in Nitinaht but it’s

never long enough. For me the summer is about riding bikes and within minutes I can be in the beautiful trails of Mount Fromme and Seymour, riding incredible single track to my heart’s content. Thanks to the North Shore Mountain Bike Association and the District of North Vancouver, money has gone into revitalizing these trails for dog walkers, runners and mountain bikers and the result is more fun, flowy trails for everyone. My newest two-wheeled passion is trials moto riding and this spring and summer I spent tons of time in Britannia, Squamish, Whistler

and Pemberton exploring some of the most epic trails I have ever experienced. The steep rock faces and unending technical sections are what drive me to keep going out. This summer I also did a number of alpine rides, which snake from the Sea to Sky Valley into the alpine with 3,000 to 5,000 vertical feet. There’s nothing that puts a smile on my face faster, and the alpine flowers and ice cold lakes are a super bonus. Thanks to Kim and her family, we had a great time up at Center Bay this summer. Travelling by sail or power boat, it’s amazing how quickly you can get away from the city to somewhere remote. Center Bay, located on Gambier Island, is just one small bay along our coastline where you can kick back with family and friends and swim, paddle, fish and enjoy beautiful British Columbia. My sister and her husband and their three kids also visited us this summer and Kim and I got to play host, taking them up the Grouse Grind, for picnics in Deep Cove and to visit the Vancouver Aquarium

Girl Guide Mint Cookies go on sale October 1st Watch for girls selling in your neighbourhood.

DID YOU KNOW?

Last year, Girl Guides across Canada sold an impressive 5.4 million boxes of cookies, helping to make Guiding possible for girls from age 5 - 18.

● In 1909 Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts, organized a Scouting Rally at the Crystal Palace in London.To his surprise, a large number of girls also showed up demanding to take part. The girls had been practicing Scouting by signing up with only a first initial and last name. Impressed Baden-Powell asked his sister Agnes to create a program for girls. This was the beginning of Guiding.

With a fresh new design, our chocolatey mint cookie boxes really showcase the fun girls have in Guiding. Also, they are nut-free too. Let’s see if we can sell more this year!

1.800.565.8111 bc-girlguides.org

Girl Guides help girls feel proud of their history, roots, values and personalities

Check out the NEW cookie box design.

● Lady Mary Pellatt, of Casa Loma, was Canada’s first Chief Commissioner. She paid the first employee’s salary, and hosted the first Girl Guide camp on her farm near Credit River, Ontario.

Gatehouse Montessori School • One of the best authentic Montessori Schools on the North Shore with over 30 years experience • Program begins at 3 years of age

● In 1917 the value of Guiding was recognized by the Canadian Government with an Act of Parliament approving the Constitution of the Canadian Girl Guides Association as it was then known. The name was changed in 1961, again by Act of Parliament, to Girl Guides of Canada-Guides du Canada.

● The Fire Brigade badge was earned by knowing how to deal with shock, hemorrhage, asphyxiation, burns and scalds, unconciousness from accidents, fits and fainting, and know fire prevention, fire extinction, and rescue work. ● Current badges focus on community involvement and healthy living, and include Cultural Awareness, Peace, Cycling, and Snowshoeing. UNIFORMS ● The original uniforms were sewn by each individual Girl Guide based on a common pattern. ● The famous neck scarf was introduced in the 1960’s and can be used as a sling, or turniquet in emergency situations, demonstrating the Guiding motto“Be Prepared.” ● Originally, badges were sewn on the sleeves of uniform shirts. In 1964 sashes were introduced to hold badges so uniforms could be passed down or given away.

• Extended day program

CELEBRITY GUIDES

• Full-day Montessori Kindergarten

● Dr. Roberta Bondar, Canada’s first female astronaut and former Girl Guide, juggled Girl Guide cookies in space.

● The 1987 uniform was designed by well known Canadian fashion designer Alfred Sung.

● Some other well-known former Girl Guides include: Margaret Atwood, Sheila Copps, Elisha Cuthbert, Celine Dion, Feist, MP Hedy Fry, Governor General of Canada Michaëlle Jean, Karen Kain, Sarah McLaughlin, Dini Petty, Dina Pugliese and Mary Walsh.

● In1988 pants were introduced. At that time, dresses were still an option but were eliminated when the current uniform was designed in 2000.

You can now register online at www.girlguides.ca or call 1-800-565-8111.

● To earn the Handywoman badge, girls had to complete tasks such as re-making a mattress, laying linoleum, installing a window pane, and splicing a rope. ● To earn the Carpentry badge, girls had to construct two separate joints, construct a box without a lid from a piece of wood 12 inches square and state its capacity, invent and construct a simple arrangement for fastening a door or a gate, and know the nature and common uses of six kinds of wood.

Yet for some, the basic academic learning skills of memory, attention, processing and sequencing are underdeveloped.

Their learning suffers and so does their confidence and self-esteem.

SENIORS

Age warfare debate only starting to heat up I’VE been writing this column for five years.

Not a long time really but long enough, I think, to give me some perspective on the issues facing seniors. What worries me the most right now? At the top of the list is something I call age warfare. The war is all about the transfer of wealth. The pitch is aimed at those aged 20-40. Out of work, underpaid, crippled by student debt, can’t afford to buy a house? It’s not your fault. Your parents are to blame. They’ve taken all the good jobs, they’ve left you a massive debt and they’re about to bankrupt the health care and social security systems. The only thing left for you, if you’re lucky, is a room in the basement. And here’s the kicker: The older generation expects you to maintain a system that benefits them at your expense, regardless of their needs or yours. The point is that the world has changed and old age entitlements need to reflect that reality. Or, to put it more bluntly, it’s time to cut the social benefits for seniors. I think that’s wrong but I suspect the

Older & Wiser Tom Carney

game of pitting the struggling young against the smug and comfortably old is just getting started. Recent actions by government and a quasi government organization have left many people disappointed. Recently we learned that executives at Community Living B.C. were receiving bonuses at the same time that services to clients were being cut. The public was outraged and the government promised to fix the problem. What did they do? The money that the managers previously received as a bonus was simply rolled into their base salary. Cute, but I doubt many people

will be fooled. TransLink’s decision to restore the Taxi Saver Program is certainly good news. Management’s explanation: They didn’t fully understand the consequences of their decision. My take: They are more clueless than malicious. Two years after the Alzheimer’s Society released their groundbreaking Rising Tide report, we still don’t have a national strategy to deal with this horrible disease. If someone can tell me why not, I’m all ears. Come to think of it we don’t have a national strategy for housing, mental health or Pharmacare either. I could fill this space many times over with things I wish I hadn’t said. Two examples: More than once I’ve written that poverty among seniors in Canada was no longer a problem. I got fooled by the data. I was looking at percentages rather than actual numbers and I got it wrong. And the, “aging is a disease,” quote that appeared in a 2010 column certainly didn’t win me any friends, even though the quote wasn’t mine.

Research, experience don’t always jive From page 21 Two or three books cross my desk every week. I’d be hard pressed to pick a favourite, but when it comes to the scariest book I’ve ever read on aging, it’s no contest. Lillian Rubin’s 60 on Up is billed as The Truth About Aging in America. If you think the Golden Years is a bunch of baloney, this is the book for you. It’s difficult not to get drawn into the debate around public versus private health care. Frankly, I think we’re missing the point. It’s who should be on the receiving end of the care, not who should deliver the care that’s important. And the answer to that question, in my opinion, is the poor and the marginalized in our society.

I’m not ready to throw in the towel about the benefits of the flu shot just yet, but lately those opposed to vaccinations have been much more effective in getting their message out than the health authority. Finally sometimes the research that comes to us does not jive with our own experience. The reports I’ve seen on the use of technology by seniors suggests that as a group they love their computerized gadgets. Really? I’m not saying the research is wrong, but that is certainly not what we’re seeing in our own work with seniors here on the North Shore.

Based on her needs and what she saw and felt in the communities we looked at, my mother in law’s final decision was simple to make.Through the process, Next Habitat was empathetic, understanding and maintained a clear line-of-site to the end result.We all wanted to reduce the risk of making a mistake by putting her in the wrong place.

Seniors Housing Retirement Planning An issue that is often overlooked when planning for retirement is the cost of seniors housing. Some financial advisors will say that the sale of the family home will be sufficient to cover these costs. This may or may not be the right assumption. Next Habitats’ assessment process and proprietary data base enables clients to understand the options and costs of housing as they age. This picture will consider such issues as the costs of living in their own home, contracting in-home care, moving into independent living, assisted living, complex care and hospice care communities. Once a clearer picture is available, Next Habitat clients can work with their financial advisor to better structure their portfolio to meet future housing needs, work with their estate lawyer to document a retirement plan and begin a dialogue with family members focused implementing the plan. Mr. Buitenhuis’ goal is to provide information that enriches family dialogue and assists in making the right decisions. Seniors Housing Placement Next Habitat acts as the bridge between the consumer and those who operate seniors housing.Through a thorough

understanding of the seniors housing market in specific geographic areas like the North Shore, Next Habitat can provide objective information around what community would make the most sense for an individual or couple. A Next Habitat advisors will meet a client in their home to complete a detailed assessment focused on health, cognitive and mobility issues, housing and service needs, lifestyle, location preferences and budget. Once the advisor has a clear understanding of needs, they develop a list of communities that may be a match and then, after consultation with the client, a short list of 2 or 3 communities is agreed on. After touring the short listed communities, a decision is made and the advisor will negotiate the lease on behalf of the client.

Many families have experienced the confusion, the emotional stress and spent the hours trying to find the right seniors housing for themselves, an elderly parent, in-law or relative. For all the resources available in the world of health care, finding appropriate seniors housing can be difficult. Paul Buitenhuis of Next Habitat Advisors has experienced this first hand. “When my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I began a long process of finding a new home for her. I was also doing this while working a full time job. I saw places that I should have never been looking at and had no clue what questions to ask. I thought there must be a better way.We created Next Habitat Advisors to focus on assisting seniors and their families make the best choices for their future while relieving the stress of a very stressful experience.”

WORK

Contract connects two nations Tsleil-Waututh company provides energy alternatives to reserves Manisha Krishnan mkrishnan@nsnews.com

YOU can save hundreds, even thousands, of income tax dollars — often year after year — by deducting expenses when you have a self-employed sideline or full-time business.

A company owned by the Tsleil-Waututh Nation has landed a substantial contract to provide small wind turbines to an aboriginal community in the U.S. TWN Wind Power expects to have two 40-kilowatt wind turbines up and running by October in the White Earth Nation, located in northwestern Minnesota. The turbines will help the reserve run its sports complex and business supply centre. TWN formed two years ago after the Tsleil-Waututh made a $2 million investment into Endurance Wind Power, a Surrey-based company. As part of the deal, TWN is distributing small wind turbines to First Nations communities across North America. “After doing a bunch of due diligence and research on it they did find there was a market segment that wasn’t being served,” said Marc Soulliere, president and CEO of TWN. “For most communities, energy costs, whether they are electricity or in remote communities, diesel, they are some of the highest costs on their balance sheet and if they can decrease those in any way that helps the communities overall.” The company first began talks with White Earth Nation after attending an economic development conference together. They are now looking at collaborating on more energy-saving projects, said Soulliere, who did not want to disclose how much the current contract is worth. “There is a desire for nations to build their businesses together if at all possible,” he said. Last October, TWN set up a five-kW wind turbine in the Lower Similkameen reserve located near Cawston, B.C. It currently has projects on the go in Ontario, Nova Scotia, California and Oklahoma. For more information go to www.twnwindpower.com.

But please resist the very real temptation to deduct nonbusiness expenses. Money Matters The general rule is simple: Mike Grenby You may deduct some or all of what you spend on most goods and services likely to help you earn income the government can then tax. There are various exceptions, but always keep in mind this “reasonable expectation of profit” test. Once you cross the line to “personal expenses,” you lose their deductibility. It’s so easy to say, “Oh, I’ll just run this through the business.” But before you do that, imagine a tax auditor querying that item. How would you justify it as a legitimate business expense? If there could be any doubt about an item, I always write on the back of the receipt a couple of notes linking it to that “spending money to make money” guideline. After all, it could be several years before the tax office decides to audit you, or even to query a few of your Be careful about expenses. which expenses to If you are challenged, and deduct: the tax office decides you ■ Have a businessdeliberately evaded tax by related reason claiming a non-deductible ■ Claiming personal expense, you will have to pay expenses can cost you not only the back tax plus ■ Home offices should interest but probably also a qualify penalty. On the other hand, don’t be timid about deducting expenses that can in some way be linked to your business. There can even be overlapping areas, like claiming expenses for a home office or other parts of your home for business purposes. For example, if these areas comprise 20 per cent of your home space, you should be able to deduct 20 per cent of maintenance and repair costs, rent or mortgage interest, property insurance premiums and so on. This same approach applies if you rent out part of your home. But be careful you don’t endanger the capital-gains-tax-free status of your principal residence. Check tax office guidelines and perhaps also get expert advice.

TASTE

Area offers lots of varieties The edgy, warm, dark wood-toned restaurant Notable Potables (owned by the winery of the same name) is leading Tim Pawsey the charge in Buenos Aires, showcasing Patagonia’s role as an up and coming region. (Even though some plantings have been around for nigh on 100 years or more, Argentina’s southernmost wine country is all too often eclipsed by more familiar Mendoza.) What’s compelling about Experiencia — aside from its truly excellent food — is the restaurant’s selfless promotion of many other Patagonian wines well beyond its own. The region is renowned for its stony soils and big diurnals (the temperature difference between day and night), which often as not results in wines with great acidity and minerality. If Mendoza is perceived as being all about Malbec (it is, although there’s plenty more to discover too) then Patagonia can lay claim to a veritable wealth of other varieties that flourish, including Pinot Noir, Merlot and Riesling, not to mention Torrontes and, yes, more Malbec. Our tasting yielded a wide variety of good finds, starting with citrus and mineral-toned Humberto Canale Riesling 2011 (90 pts; we’re hopeful some might eventually find its way here) to Familia Shroeder’s highly appealing, off-dry Deseado Torrontes sparkler ($26.99), which won third spot in this year’s Vancouver Wine Festival Vintners’ Brunch. Civil engineer Humberto Canale is credited with breathing life into the barren region when he initiated an early 1900s irrigation project from the Rio Negro that effectively turned the desert into a green and flourishing area suitable for all

We’re partial to both, in that the pilsner delivers a whole lot more hoppy heft and herbal bite than you might expect, while the pale ale is another strong contender, with no shortage of richness without being in any way cloying, balanced by a gentle hint of citrus. In short, they both add up to good drinking. We have a hunch, however, that the fanciful bottle design (conceived by wine label guru Bernie Hadley Beauregard) will also gain a firm following, with a whimsical salute to the steam-driven brewery and its location, well almost. There is a little licence at play here. Front and centre is the “flatiron” Hotel Europe, topped with two giant beer bottles, to give the appearance of an ocean liner. Gassy Jack, complete with barrel, is on the bow. There’s more, including a steam kettle hot air balloon on the neck, a small squadron of “heli-kegs” flying around, and even a “redemption” angel heading heavenward with a 10c. back bottle. It really is a thing of beauty. And we’ve never said that about a beer bottle before, not even a full one.

Ambleside Farmers’ Market will run every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. until Oct. 28 in the parking lot behind the police station on Bellevue Avenue and 13th Street in West Vancouver. There will be traditional and organic produce, prepared food vendors, crafters and more. Info: www.artisanmarkets.ca or 604-318-0487.

On Thursday, Nov. 29 pastry chef Shaya Sy Rantfors will teach a class on how to make truffles, barks and chocolate confections. Fee: $74.50. Info: www.ambrosiaadventures.com or 604-218-2084.

TOLPUDDLE MARTYRS REMEMBERED AS FIRST LABOUR ORGANIZERS

Pub pays tribute to workers Mitchell Smyth Contributing Writer

September 28, 29, 30, 2012

TOLPUDDLE, England: This Dorsetshire village is the very essence of a peaceful, sleepy community, all the more so since a bypass was built a few years ago to carry the A35 highway traffic away from its main street.

Look for the special North Shore Culture Days Map & Guide in the North Shore News September 28th issue. Find North Shore Culture Days events in North and West Vancouver at

culturedays.ca

It comes as a surprise, then, to find here, among thatched cottages and leafy lanes, the echoes of an event that changed the face of industry and business around the world. That event was the birth of the tradeunion movement. You’d expect, somehow, to find organized labour’s birthplace in some sweatshop or an assembly line in an industrial city — Manchester, perhaps, or Sheffield, or Detroit or Pittsburgh. But, no, it was here that labour was first organized, by six men who tried to get a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work. Their efforts cost them dearly. That’s why they’re called the Tolpuddle Martyrs. Their story is told all over the village, in a cottage, a church, the local pub, even in a tree on Main Street. That tree is a huge sycamore. It was already full grown in 1834 when six farmhands met in its shade to talk about wages. The local squires had decided to cut a workman’s pay from nine shillings a week to six. The men who met under the tree swore to stand together and fight the There are still quite a number of prime sailing dates pay cut. and itineraries available for this fall and winter.

PETS

Dogs appear to not have many worries Actions suggest pet doesn’t act its human age

I was out walking my dogs this afternoon when I had one of those “A-ha!” moments. You know the ones that hit you like a wall of thick, dense air as something you had been pondering becomes instantly clear. I was watching Piper walk and sniff along our walking route and began thinking of how he was aging. He just turned eight, and if you follow the human-versusdog years guide it means he is now 56. He is now eight years older than me. Can you imagine aging seven years in a span of one year? The “A-ha!” moment came when I realized that Piper doesn’t care. That may not sound like

Canine Connection Joan Klucha

such a realization for some but when you think about it deeply, dogs just don’t care about the future or the past for that matter. It is irrelevant to them. They don’t check their horoscope to see what is going to happen today, this week or this month. They don’t lie in bed worrying about what tomorrow may bring or what happened yesterday. Have you ever watched a dog sleep? They look like

they don’t have a care in the world. Piper doesn’t fret about his age or how each year he gets older. Every day he gets up and starts his day happy to be awake. He doesn’t hear the media telling him the longevity predictions of his breed as we humans hear all the time about how long we are supposed to live. He just lives each day. He doesn’t even live each day as if it was going to be his last, he just lives each day. Another life lesson courtesy of a dog. How many of us have heard that saying, “Live each day as if it was going to be your last?” How many of us can? We get up in the morning, most of us racing from one activity to another. Would any of us want to spend our last day at work or doing any one of these tasks? Yet we hear that saying all the time. If you think about it, it leaves us with impossible expectations of ourselves and

our lives. We subconsciously feel like we are not living to our potential because we are not living like it was our last day because of all the stuff we have to do instead of living. We end up living for a day in the future where we can “live like it was our last,” be it on the weekend or “someday.” That saying denies us the joy of being alive right now, of being able to enjoy the moment as it is, doing whatever you are doing. Unless of course we live our days like our dogs do, meaning no matter what you

are doing, be it work, chores, or after-school kid activities, you become more mindful of what you are doing. What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is being aware of the thoughts that enter your mind and how you allow them to affect you and your behaviour. Choose positive thoughts instead of negative. The goal is to be more like your dog and seek peaceful enjoyment within each moment. That is what the saying, “live each day as if it was your last” should mean. I used to have sympathy

for dogs for having such a short life span, as if they were missing out on something by only living 10-15 years. But I now look at them, watch them, study them and envy them. Their “short” lives are filled with such peace. They don’t have the mental chatter that takes them away from the present and projects them into the future or drags them into the past. Even dogs that have baggage are able to find a sense of mental peace that humans take a lifetime to achieve, if they do at all.

Tough road for West Van

Highlanders the lone North Shore team left in AAA league Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

AS the high school football landscape continues to change on the North Shore, a single, somewhat unlikely team is left alone in the province’s top league. Two years ago the West Vancouver Highlanders folded midway through the season due to a lack of numbers. Last year they returned with a respectable showing — missing a playoff spot on the final play of the season — and now, following Carson Graham’s move to the AA ranks, they are the sole North Shore team left at the AAA level. Head coach Shawn Anderson, who has helped rebuild the program after taking over the job just weeks before the start of the fateful folding season, said he’s more interested in the commitment his players have shown than the number of letters in front of the name of their league. “(With) what we went through two years ago, to be honest, I’m glad we still have a program, let alone whether we play in AAA or AA,” he said. “We were in a really NEWS photo Paul McGrath tough situation and I think it’s a testament to our players’ WEST Vancouver running back Marcus Schwandner fights off a Seaquam tackler resilience and all the coaches during an early-season exhibition win. Regular season points will be on the line staying with it and moving in next Friday when the Highlanders host W.J. Mouat in AAA play. the right direction.” They’re off to a good start. The Highlanders opened the While the team is still smaller — in both player size and number — than most of the other teams in the AAA league, season with a pair of closely fought wins over talented AA teams Anderson said they have a committed, talented core of players Seaquam and Ballenas. In both games West Van fell behind early but rallied late to that should make them competitive in most games. “The health of the program is good, we have some very collect last-minute victories. Anderson was both concerned and good players, but AAA football is tough,” he said. “We play encouraged by that trend. “In those games we didn’t do what we needed to do to very, very tough teams that have very good coaches and established programs while we’re still in the process of trying to build that.” See Highlanders page 32

National teams make field hockey Jr. World Cup Andy Prest aprest@nsnews.com

THE Canadian men’s and women’s junior field hockey teams — powered by a lot of North Shore talent — both qualified for the 2013 Junior World Cup by advancing to the championship finals of the Pan American Junior Championships being held this week in Guadalajara, Mexico. Semifinal games played Thursday were pressure-packed for both sides — a win would guarantee a World Cup berth while a loss would mean more must-win games. The women took the field first against Chile and, with a vocal Canadian cheering section in the stands, battled to a 3-1 win. North Vancouver’s Holly Stewart scored the game’s first goal in the first half but Chile replied quickly to make it 1-1 at the half. Jessica Buttinger of Waterloo, Ont. put the Canadians ahead again two minutes into the second half and Vancouver’s Caashia Karringten sealed the deal with a goal off of a penalty corner in the 57th minute. In a pool with Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico and Brazil, the Canadians finished in second place behind Argentina with a record of two wins, one tie and one loss to put them into the semifinals. Chile, meanwhile, entered the semifinals with a perfect 5-0 pool play record that included a 2-1 win over the United States.

to face Canada for a second time. Argentina defeated Canada 6-0 when the two teams met in the opening round. Win or lose, however, the Canadians will make their first appearance at the Junior World Cup since 2005. The Canadians have not made the final of the Pan American Championships since 1997. North Shore players on the team include Rachel Donohoe, Hannah Haughn, Karli Johansen, Ashley Kristen and Holly Stewart from North Vancouver and Shannon Elmitt and Kim Scraper from West Vancouver. On the men’s side North Vancouver brothers Spencer and Taylor Curran helped Canada make their first Pan Am final since 1985 and qualify for the Junior World Cup for the first time since 2001. The men also faced Chile in semifinal action Thursday and fell behind 1-0 early but replied later in the half to make it 1-1 at the break. With a ticket to the World Cup dangling in front of them the Canadian men broke the game wide open at the start of the second half, scoring four goals in the first 13 minutes to take a commanding 5-1 lead. Three more goals in the dying minutes topped off a decisive 8-1 victory. Vancouver’s Gordon Johnston led the way with a hat trick while Tsawwassen’s Andrew Kanerva added a pair. The Canadians will face Argentina in the championship final Sunday. Through three opening round games and two playoff matches the Canadian men have a perfect 5-0 record with 32 goals for and 15 against. Argentina also went 5-0 with 62 goals for and 18 goals against.

start the games off well,” he said. “We were behind in both games quickly and needed to come back. But we have some players that made some big plays for us and our defence does what it can to hold us in. We’re not very big so I think it’s resilience from our team to kind of stay with it, which is great, it’s what I wanted to see. Now we just need to get rid of the slow starts and start fast and keep up the same second half play.” The margin for error will get a lot slimmer now with AAA play set to begin this week. On Sept. 21, after North Shore News press deadline, the Highlanders hosted the perennial powerhouse team from Terry Fox secondary. Next Friday they’ll open regular season play by hosting the W.J. Mouat Hawks, currently ranked No. 2 in the province for AAA. The Hawks are led by running back Maleek Irons who racked up an incredible 773 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns in the team’s first three games. “He’s on pace to smash B.C. high school prep football rushing records,” said Anderson. “Whether he can keep that up, I’m not sure. I’m hoping against us he doesn’t.” The player with the best shot at shutting him down for the Highlanders will likely be defensive captain James Oswald who has been racking up tackles and sacks this season. “He’s been unreal,” said Anderson. “He’s been single-handedly making tackles everywhere. He really is a solid football player.” On offence the Highlanders lean on the quarterback-wide receiver duo of Johnny Franklin and Blake Whiteley. Franklin can beat teams in a lot of ways, said Anderson. “He’s not a true quarterback in the sense of the word, he’s just a really good athlete. He’s one of those guys who can make plays out of what seems to be nothing. He did that and really won the Ballenas game for us with a punt return. I haven’t seen a run like that in my short time as a coach in high school football.” Franklin’s top target is Whiteley, a

talented playmaker listed at six-foot-five and 225 pounds. “He’s been our big-play wide receiver so far,” said Anderson, adding that the big wideout is getting some interest from Div. 1 NCAA schools. Keeping the playmakers safe is an offensive line that needs to maximize their limited assets. “Our offence line, even though they’re super small . . . they understand what they need to do and they hold on for dear life at times and try to give our offence enough time,” said Anderson. Knowing the team’s strengths and limitations, Anderson said he and the players have set the goal of qualifying for the playoffs, a feat the Highlanders haven’t accomplished since 2008. To get there they’d likely need to win at least two of their five regular season games. “Our players decided to not necessarily

worry about what teams they need to beat or how exactly they were going to do it, they just wanted to be competitive in every game,” said Anderson. “That really is our team goal — to try to be competitive in every game and have teams have to prepare for us and give them a run for their money. If we’re able to do that hopefully we can sneak out a couple of wins and get into the playoffs.” They almost accomplished that goal last season, missing out when New West stopped them with a goal-line stand on the final play of the game. “We had a chance to win, we put ourselves in a position to win, we just couldn’t get ourselves into the end zone.” The battle begins again next Friday when the Highlanders host the Hawks. Kickoff is at 3:45 p.m. at West Vancouver secondary.

Ronald B. Stokes

April 28th, 1928 – September 12th, 2012 Ronald B. Stokes, a true adventurer with a passion for life, will be remembered fondly by many. He was born in Lincolnshire, England, April 28th, 1928. His Mother, Ivy was an actress and his Father, Jesse a Naval Officer. He is survived by daughters Deborah Lynn Rees (Husband, Robert), Jessica Anne, son David Wade and grandchildren Alex and Patrick Rees and his brothers Jimmy, Peter and Wallace. Although the family lived on a WWI disability pension, Ron lived a happy childhood in the English countryside with his parents and brothers. Life changed abruptly when he was 12 years old and WWII broke out. Ron’s school was bombed and he was evacuated and did not see his family again for 2 ½ years. After the war, Ron joined the Royal Artillery Officer’s School for his compulsory 2 years in the forces, graduating as a 2nd Lieutenant. Ron excelled in Geography and Chemistry and was awarded a scholarship to study at the prestigious Camborne School of Mines in Cornwall, England where he graduated as a Mining Engineer (1952). After graduating he worked in Australia for two years looking for lead and zinc deposits. At night, in his tent, he studied gemology and became a qualified Gemologist. In 1955 Ron emigrated to Vancouver where he lived in Point Grey and worked throughout the Province in the mining industry. He married Edwina Elizabeth Wade in 1959 and moved to Horseshoe Bay where they raised their children. They chose to separate in 1974 but have always remained amicable. Ron was active and well known in the BC mining community. He was a life member of the Association for Mineral Exploration of British Columbia (formerly the BC & Yukon Chamber of Mines) and received a Distinguished Service Award. He was also a member of the Engineers Club.

KLEIN, Kathryne Frances Scotney (nee George)

Kathi, our beloved bright light, passed away on September 14, 2012. Born in Vancouver November 11, 1948, Kathi grew up in the Capilano Highlands of North Vancouver, the oldest of 4 children. After graduating from Handsworth, she enrolled in BCIT’s very first class of registered nurses in 1967. Nursing was the perfect fit for Kathi, and Kathi was the perfect nurse. For most of her career, she was a calm and steady hand at St. Paul’s ER. Later, her superb organizational skills led her to administration, where she remained until she retired from St. Paul’s in 2010. Through Kathi’s first marriage, she had two sons whom she adored, Andrew (Tara) and Michael (Deanna) Emmott. In her second marriage, Kathi found the love of her life, Robert Klein, with whom she shared the last 24 years. Together, they helped raise Kathi’s children, Robert’s sons Christopher, Stephen (Kelly), Bradley (Sandy), and daughter Karina (Trevor). Kathi was Robert’s soul-mate, his very best friend. She was the heart and centre of the family. For Kathi, family meant her children and Robert’s, her sisters Carel (Jim) Bond and Margrett (Dave Diether) and brother Frank (Carol), Robert’s sister, Elsie (Walter) Siemens and their parents, Frank and Karoline, her precious grandchildren Devyn, Blaise, Emma, Paige and Alex, and the many nieces and nephews who loved their Auntie Kathi. She was cherished by so many, including her school buddies who reunited every year, dear friends from her nursing years at St. Paul’s, her Christian family at Bethany Baptist Church and many other special friends. Kathi was vibrant, funny, caring and passionate. She loved her life. Travelling, spending time at the family cabin, playing golf, skiing at Sun Peaks, wakeboarding and, of course, organizing Robert’s life. She was always there to help others, including taking the time needed to nurse her mother, aunt and cousins during their own illnesses. We will miss her so much. Special thanks to the staff at St. Michael’s Hospice in Burnaby and the BC Cancer Agency. In lieu of flowers, donations to Hope International Development Agency (www.hopeinternational.com) are welcomed. A celebration of life service will be held Saturday September 29, 2012 at 3:00 PM, at Bethany Baptist Church, 22680 Westminster Highway, Richmond BC.

After retirement he combined his love of travel and dancing and became a Cruise Host and Guest Lecturer for many cruise lines, travelling the world in this capacity for over 10 years.

GROCOTT - Cora, aka Cora Gray Cora quietly 'slipped the surly bonds of Earth' on September 10, 2012. Born in Stoke-On-Trent, England on August 9, 1919, Cora showed an early aptitude for helping people as a youth worker there. After the early deaths of both parents in 1951, Cora went to Mexico City as a social worker. She was in New York City where the first of chance encounters and a fifty dollar loan took her to Toronto, then Vancouver. She was hired by her employment agency and came to own BC Personnel, helping Vancouver grow. She was the first female member of the Board of Trade and an early bicycle commuter from the West End to downtown where she would run her business and hold court over drinks at the Vancouver Hotel. After selling BC Personnel, Cora lived in India and Mexico and then returned to West Vancouver. Loving the forest and the mountains, she never left for long again. She established Cora Gray Business Services in West Van before retiring to a life of writing resumes and making friends to whom she would lend a helping hand the rest of her days. She continued the gatherings of friends that she began when she lived next to the seawall and she cruised in her huge sedan, then her scooter. Always bright and of her own mind right to the end, she will be missed. She takes leave of her dear friends, some who have continued to gather for her weekly salons, and a son, Blair Mitten, born at St. Paul’s in her early days in Vancouver, adopted, raised and also living in West Vancouver, a fact unknown by all parties until they reunited twenty years ago. Thanks to the caring and attentive staff of Living Well, the Canadian Red Cross, and the West Van firemen’s 'pick-me-up service' without whose efforts and patience Cora could not have stayed in her home. There will be a Thanksgiving Salon in Cora’s memory from 2-5pm, Oct. 8, with a brief service at 2:30 in the penthouse at 555 13th St., West V anc ouve r, p re ss # 8 4 a t intercom. Please contact Peter Miller, 604-313-9639 or pmiller396@gmail.com to RSVP or forward regrets.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Now begins four weeks of down-home concentration: children, gardening, food, nutrition, security, real estate, business foundations and territory. This entire zone has been gripped in the velvet claws of delay, lack of enthusiasm, restrictions and overly-pragmatic demands for almost three years – this, in turn, has caused relationship dissatisfaction and career unpredictability. The last two could explode Saturday. But the home zone gets a slow sweet curative lift Oct. 5 onward, which will help turn relationships from anger to ease. (Well, partly!) Be restful, nap often. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The month ahead is not an important one. Let go of stress; plunge into smaller things: errands, details, paperwork, short trips, casual acquaintances, and information gathering. This whole area, which has been rather sluggish for the past three years, will lift, grow more buoyant, from Oct. 5 onward. (That day begins two plus years in which you would be wise to work on your abode, serve your children’s interests, and seek to end old, nagging health problems, especially with your back, heart or elimination system.) An easy week – but take care Saturday with travel, law, opinions. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The month ahead features money, buying/selling, possessions, memory, rote learning, and sensual attractions (ones that might turn boring in the long run). A three-year pall lifts from all these things Oct. 5. (Paradoxically, this ensures that new purely sensual attractions will eventually bore – the “new excitement” that looms in relationships now to 2025 will bring a magic and poetry – and sexuality – far stronger than mere sensuality.) Work’s lucky Tuesday. Careful Saturday: finances, sex, secrets, health, intellectual pursuits and far travel – all are “accident prone.”

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your energy, charisma, luck, charm, clout, timing and effectiveness soar during the few weeks ahead. Go forth, conquer dragons, tackle intimidating tasks/situations, and start important projects. This won’t be done without a struggle; the first of these appears mildly Sunday/Monday (on domestic or security fronts) and the second explodes more significantly late Friday, all Saturday: this one can pit a crucial relationship, home/security, and your own swelling needs against each other. Remember: you call the shots now: you win. In two weeks, three years of gloom lift, dissolve. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Use the month ahead to recuperate. Though you’ll remain determined, brave, even gung-ho for the next two weeks, your energy reserves are falling. Eat and dress sensibly, and nap often. Sunday/Monday bring minor delays or disappointments in short trips, details, paperwork and communications. Your home, family, real estate, retirement programs and security face splendid luck Monday eve to Wednesday (Tuesday best). Take advantage! Romance, sweet notions fill late week, but go slow. Saturday brings climaxes in work, health and communications: be calm, diplomatic, and safe. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The weeks ahead bring popularity, light romance, soaring optimism, entertainment, group affairs and wish fulfillment. “Soaring” optimism because an influence that has held down all these areas, including optimism, moves on by Oct. 5, letting everything rise – including your hopes. (And hopes lead to action, action to benefit.) Sunday/Monday feature money and possessions – and minor problems with them. (These, too, will “lighten” in two weeks.) Travel and communicate Tuesday/Wednesday. Home, Thursday/Friday. Romantic, monetary problems climax Saturday: contain temper!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of relationships begins with a mildly rocky start (Sunday/Monday) but all’s well that ends, well, peaceably. And that’s the outlook, for Oct. 5 will remove almost three years of opposition, power plays, delay and disappointment in relationships, from marriage to contracts to simple everyday dealings with strangers. Not all will be cured – you’ll continue to face career and reputational pressures into 2023. But love and friendship, at least, will return. Your optimism and popularity surge Monday eve to Wednesday. Lie low late week. Energy’s explosive Saturday: calm! Taurus April 20-May 20: A month of work faces you – just slog through it. Protect your “everyday” health – dress and eat sensibly. A health or employment matter that has irked you for three years will dissolve in two weeks – could be a mental or “attitude” condition. Sunday/Monday bring understanding, gentle wisdom/ love. Be ambitious Monday eve to Wednesday – higher-ups like you, could open the door to an upward climb. Yes, enter, take it! A mild uplift in optimism, popularity, a smidgeon of romance comes Thursday/ Friday. Saturday climaxes legal, background, health matters: stay calm, forgive, love life. Gemini May 21-June 20: A month of joy begins: romance, pleasure, arts/beauty, creative surges and risky yet lucky urges – and happiness with your children’s progress. Be adventurous. If you’re attracted, say so! A grey pall or hesitation that has plagued this area (especially romance) for almost three years will lift (for three decades) Oct. 5. In addition, three years of financial grief will also end. This is not a complete change, perhaps a 50 per cent improvement; but before you could not win; now you will win at least half the time. Careful Saturday: love, money, sex, friends –all explosive.

Sept. 23 - 29, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead emphasize your ambitions, career, relations with higher-ups and authorities, and your community reputation. A change will occur on Oct. 5 that (subtly and at imperceptibly at first) ends three years of high yet frustrating ambition, and begins three years of more social, peaceable, and hopeful ambition. Before, you climbed by hard work; now forward, by playing golf at the company tournament, joining committees, etc. Your energy soars early week. Chase money Tuesday. Saturday brings recent domestic, security and property stresses to a climax: you’ll solve it! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A sweet, gentle month of love, understanding, far travel, cultural affairs, learning, legalities and “broadcasting ideas” lies before you. These things have been sluggish, restrictive and a “hard climb” the last three years: starting Oct. 5, they bounce back to normal – and “benevolent excitement” will soon follow. The first order of business is rest and contemplation: do this Sunday/Monday. Your energy surges back Monday eve through Wednesday – charge ahead! Chase money or spend it (cautiously) Thursday/ Friday – don’t buy high-tech. Friends and gossip (unfriends) climax Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A month of mysteries, research, lifestyle changes, sexual urges, health diagnoses and financial commitments begins. This zone has kept you hopeful for the last three years, but has given little. That changes Oct. 5: the restrictions dragging down this area dissolve. But “normality” isn’t promised:sex,money,etc.willgrowmoreunpredictable, and deeper – an adventure of exploration looms. (This adventure starts with a puzzling bang Saturday: buy nothing – including another’s “line.”) Joy trumps events early week. Contact government, institutions Tuesday/Wednesday – success! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-560-1269
