Ruling derails pot bust Jane Seyd email@example.com
TWO men who were stopped driving away from a West Vancouver grow-op with more than eight kilograms of marijuana in their car have had their case tossed out after a judge ruled police violated their rights to get the evidence. Phat Van Tran, 50, and Huu Hung Nguyen, 43, of Vancouver were both charged with production of marijuana in connection with a grow operation raided by West Vancouver police in May of last year. Police seized more than 600 pot plants from the home at 3939 Viewridge Place, a quiet residential area. But prosecutors abruptly dropped the charges against both men recently after North Vancouver Judge Judy Gedye ruled Nov. 2 that none of the evidence connecting the See Defence page 3

Busker takes city bylaw to court
Jane Seyd firstname.lastname@example.org
A North Vancouver jazz singer and street performer is challenging the City of North Vancouver’s noise bylaw, saying it violates her charter-guaranteed right to free expression. The showdown over Megan Regehr’s busking is now headed before a judge, as Regehr — who goes by the stage name Babe Coal — ﬁled documents in B.C. Supreme Court recently asking the court to ﬁnd the noise bylaw unenforceable. Regehr, who often performs on the sidewalk or in the civic plaza near Lonsdale Avenue and 14th Street, was handed at least six tickets this summer by the city’s bylaw staff and RCMP ofﬁcers for violating the city’s noise bylaw. Each ticket means a ﬁne of up to $200. At issue was Regehr’s use of an amp for the street
Crooner claims ‘no amp’ rule denies her freedom of expression
performances and her refusal to unplug when asked to do so by city staff. Regehr argues that as a “crooner” who whispers some of her lyrics, her songs wouldn’t be audible without the amp. Regehr says she sets the amp at between two and four watts for her public busking sessions — arguing that’s quieter than some performers without an amp. In her court documents, Regehr writes that performing her soulful jazz is “how I communicate and express myself.” Being asked to unplug takes that away, she said, and denies her freedom of expression. In the time she’s been busking, Regehr has only had one person in North Vancouver voice disapproval, said her manager
Mitch Barnes, while the vast majority of those who’ve heard her have been supportive. In July, when Regehr ﬁrst went public with her ﬁght against the bylaw, managers and staff at neighbouring businesses including Money Mart, the Eighties restaurant, Ocean Wellness and Scotiabank all praised Regehr and her music. But the city stands behind its position that not all listeners are fans — at least when they don’t have a choice about hearing the music — and that they have the right to ban use of ampliﬁers in public spaces. According to court documents ﬁled by the city’s bylaw manager, Brad McRae, between June 11 and Aug. 20 this year, the city received 22 complaints from 12 people about Regehr’s busking, saying her music could be heard in nearby homes and businesses “morning, afternoon and evening.” In the court documents, McRae said Regehr received tickets See City page 5

Onni development backlash grows Defence says trafﬁc
700 oppose size of plans for Safeway site
stop a ruse From page 1
Brent Richter email@example.com
A group of City of North Vancouver residents, about 700 of them so far, are hoping to stay council’s hand on approving what could be the largest development in Upper Lonsdale history. City resident Linda Heese and a few other volunteers have been collecting signatures for a petition calling on council to reject a proposal from developer Onni Group for the Safeway site at 13th Street and Lonsdale Avenue. The project would see 344 residential units in two towers measuring 180 and 240 feet in height, atop a commercial podium including a new grocery store. The project goes to a public hearing and likely vote by council on Nov. 19. But in Heese’s view, the towers are too tall and dense for the neighbourhood and NEWS photo Mike Wakeﬁeld abut the sidewalks, which will “change, irrevocably” LINDA Heese and Mike McGuire collect signatures for a petition opposing Onni’s redevelopment plans for the the character of what is now a Safeway site at 13th/14th Street and Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver. A public hearing will take place at nice pedestrian street. city hall on Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. “It’s too extreme and it doesn’t leave any greenspace left and the towers offering 10,000 square feet of non-proﬁt housing, depict how tall and how wide the buildings will be, are too close to the sidewalk. There’s no setback. 5,000 square feet of childcare space, a $1-million Heese suspects. Onni has offered to meet with Heese to discuss There’s no landscaping. There are no architecturally contribution to the city’s amenity fund, a connection to the Lonsdale Energy Corporation, infrastructure the proposal, but Heese said she is only meeting nice things about this design,” Heese said. Unlike the other condo towers in the upgrades to the surrounding streets and trafﬁc with them to discuss a much smaller development neighbourhood, council hasn’t made “big fuss and signals, $250,000 in public art, green building on the site. “I know what they’ve done and I see all their feathers” to make sure the Safeway site has large standards and extra commercial space. But those perks pale in comparison to how much detailed plans. I don’t need them to do a sales pitch setbacks and landscaping to improve their look for more Onni stands to make with such a dense project, to me,” she said. the passing public. Ultimately, the site ought to be redeveloped, The plan also calls for 14th Street to become the Heese said.

In the meantime, Heese says she will continue for which Heese blames the city and developer. community plan, said Heese. “How can we put another 20 stores in this thing, Both failed at being forthcoming about the project gathering signatures and letting people know and have (the ones here now) and not feel that with public notices and signage, Heese argued, and about the project right up until the Nov. 19 public there’s going to be a trafﬁc problem?

Alert WV homeowner’s phone tip leads police to stolen BMW POLICE are looking for the owners of 10 rings they recovered from a stolen BMW in British Properties.
NEWS photo Mike Wakeﬁeld
DISTRICT of North Vancouver ﬁreﬁghters clean up after attending a two-car collision at 29th Street and Royal Avenue.
The car came to investigators’ attention early Nov. 4 when a member of the tony neighbourhood’s Block Watch program reported a “suspicious” man peering into parked cars. The resident watched the man leave the area in a BMW 325X, and passed along the licence plate number to investigators. A check revealed the car had been reported stolen in Surrey. West Vancouver police quickly locked down the area, setting up road checks on routes leading out of the Properties. The BMW soon appeared near the intersection of Ski Lift Road near Folkstone Way, where an ofﬁcer was parked in wait. Apparently trying to avoid an
encounter, the driver reportedly turned aside and crashed into a median. A man and three women emerged from the immobilized car as the ofﬁcer approached. The ofﬁcer found a number of items inside which he believed to be stolen, including 10 rings. He arrested all four suspects at the scene. Stephanie Joan McMillan, 22, from Surrey has been charged with possession of a prohibited weapon and with carrying a concealed weapon after she was allegedly found with a Taser disguised as a cellphone in her purse. No charges have been laid against the other three, but police say the investigation is still underway, and that more charges may be forthcoming. Anyone who knows anything about the origin of the conﬁscated rings is asked to contact the WVPD at 604-925-7300. — James Weldon
men to the grow show was admissible. Gedye ruled police had violated their rights during the investigation. Police were ﬁrst alerted to a suspected grow-op in the house by a tip on April 4, 2011. The tipster said nobody seemed to live in the house, but a vehicle would appear in the driveway every afternoon. In May, Tran and Nguyen were arrested driving away from the house in a vehicle that also contained more than eight kilograms of marijuana bud in plastic garbage bags. But in a voir dire, held to determine what evidence should be admitted at trial, defence lawyer Jay Solomon said police had no justiﬁable reason to stop the car with the two men as it drove away from the house the day before the raid, or to stop another vehicle driven by Tran in North Vancouver the day before that. In court, Corp. Mark Braithwaite of the West Vancouver Police Department said he stopped Tran because the driver was going more than 100 kilometres an hour in an 80 km/h zone and he had suspicions the driver might be impaired. But he acknowledged in his testimony another police ofﬁcer who had been doing surveillance on the suspected drug house had originally asked him to stop the car. Defence lawyers argued the trafﬁc stop was a ruse carried out mainly to further the grow-op investigation. Braithwaite testiﬁed after he stopped Tran for speeding, he smelled marijuana and took him back to the station. Police searched Tran and found two grams of marijuana on him. They released him, but not before one of the ofﬁcers involved in the growop investigation searched Tran’s car, ﬁnding a variety of empty plant pots and electrical equipment. Solomon argued police didn’t have proper grounds to carry out the search. Solomon added the fact the two men were seen leaving the suspected grow-op and loading three garbage bags into a vehicle the next day was also not enough reason for police to stop the pair. “People load garbage bags into vehicles all the time for a variety of reasons,” he said. They might be “taking clothes to the Sally Ann” or “taking stuff to the garbage dump,” he said. But without information gleaned from the trafﬁc stops — and the bag full of marijuana in the car — police would not have had enough evidence to get a warrant to search the house, defence lawyers said. The judge agreed, ruling evidence obtained with the ﬂawed search warrants could not be used in the trial.

City staff say multiple complaints received In two instances, ofﬁcers who were simply driving or walking by and heard Regehr’s singing decided to issue tickets. Another time, the police responded to a public complaint about the music. Barnes said Regehr has travelled throughout North America, performing her music in public, and has found the response by the local municipality to have been the harshest. Public performances in the United States have been the most trouble-free, said Barnes. “Americans are willing to defend their freedoms,” said Barnes. “In Canada, people just don’t get it.”

after refusing to unplug the ampliﬁer on several occasions. At the end of August, the city also sent Regehr a letter, saying staff were continuing to receive multiple complaints. McRae stated the issue wasn’t Regehr’s singing itself, but that “by amplifying her music, she was imposing her music on a wide and often involuntary audience. . . .” City staff suggested Regehr apply for a special permit that would allow her to use the amp at speciﬁc times, but she refused. “She doesn’t recognize their authority,” said Barnes this week. In her lawsuit, Regehr said she feels harassed by the city staff and RCMP who have handed her tickets.

Concrete plans T
HISweek,Canada’smunicipalities called on Ottawa to hatch a longterm plan to ﬁx the country’s aging infrastructure. Given that the plea coincided with a $5-billion bump in this year’s federal deﬁcit projection, they — and we — are probably out of luck, but the idea shouldn’t be discarded. Reliable infrastructure is vital to any community’s well-being. Without good roads, bridges, sewers and transit systems, cities suffer economically, socially and in terms of health. Unfortunately, good infrastructure requires constant investment of a kind that has little political payoff. While a shiny new bridge or transit line may wow an electorate, few voters are inspired by the expensive and mundane business of keeping those baubles up to par. As a result, the past several decades
have seen a steady decline in the quality of infrastructure across the country, as governments at every level put off again and again all but the most urgently needed upgrades and replacements. Now, with the problem coming to a head, municipalities have sounded the alarm, begging Ottawa to commit to a 20-year plan that would see federal investment rise to $5.75 billion a year — a sum that would be attached by provinces and municipalities. Only the most ardent optimists will expect the federal government to agree to that right now, but Ottawa should seriously consider the proposal when our country ﬁnally claws its way out of the current slump. Only then will we break the cycle of neglect that is allowing our cities to crumble.
Try budgeting, not developing
Dear Editor: I want to congratulate you on publishing a great letter by Elias B. Merkins on Nov. 2, headlined Dense, Dense Revolution. The points are excellent, but I would even go one step further and ask what happens if the real estate market does not improve? On my small section of street there are eight condos for sale and now we are looking at a range of between seven and nine months that they have been sitting there. All around the North Shore the “for sale” signs are not only popping up, they are staying up. Perhaps our elected ofﬁcials are going to have to ﬁnd another way to get the amenities that communities want. For example, in the city there is a huge need for a new Harry Jerome Community Centre. Looking through the budget I am sure there are many ways savings can be made. How about freezing the wages of the 151 people making between $75,000 and just under $300,000? What about looking at some very frivolous expenditures under the Schedule of Suppliers of Goods and Services which totals $65,000,000? Do we need to spend $100,000 every summer for a handful of entertainers at the pier when there is great entertainment right next door at the quay? What’s the mentality that it would be a great idea to spend $140,000 to build an outdoor beach volleyball court? Thank you to Couns. Bell, Heywood, Clark and Bookham for putting a stop to that. As far as development is concerned, could the powers that be at city hall explain exactly what they mean by “affordable housing?” Are they thinking of the salary range of $75,000$95,000 earned by city ﬁreﬁghters or the $10-$15 an hour earned by the majority of residents in the city who work in the service/retail industries? There should be another reason to be anxious for elected ofﬁcials on the North Shore and that is the huge wave of baby
boomers, many of whom did not have union jobs and will be stuck on the combination of the old age pension of $544 plus GIS which only totals about $1,400 per month. The Liberals did introduce a wonderful program called the SAFER grant for senior renters who are struggling but the cap is on a rent of $700. Once the rent is above that amount the SAFER grant is reduced considerably. Of course the argument is that if your rent is, let’s say $1,000 a month, you should not need help, but what happens in the Lower Mainland where rents are so high? For those on disabilities it is also pretty harsh. Single people on PWD get $ 906.42 a month — $375 for shelter, and $531.42 for everything else. There may be an extra $20 for nutrition allowance, or something similar. We all have a responsibility to build a community where everyone is welcome and can live with decent shelter and food. If development is not the answer, then maybe it is time to look at those high earners on the municipal payroll. Sue Lakes Cook North Vancouver
Let’s stage our own FIPA debate
Dear Editor: If our representatives in Parliament are not to be permitted a public debate to clarify for us all the ins and outs of the CanadaChina FIPA agreement, why don’t we set up one of our own in British Columbia so that we, the people who live here, can get a handle on it? The authors of the two letters published in Sunday’s North Shore News would, I think, be worthy participants. Sheena Vennesland West Vancouver
Tankers, pipelines already provide 70% of B.C.’s gas Dear Editor: I am not sure how your reporter concluded that most attendees at the Kinder Morgan Open House were opposed to their project, but I did not receive that impression. My sense was that most were there to learn, other than a small number of “anti-oil” types. Jim Stephenson believes that oil pipelines exporting Canadian crude oil contribute to global greenhouse gas emissions with potentially “disastrous consequences.” This is over simplistic and largely untrue. This thesis assumes that if Canadians refuse to sell crude oil to (for example) China, the Chinese will not buy the commodity elsewhere. This is a ridiculous assumption; they will buy the commodity from another supplier, and the world greenhouse gas emissions will stay approximately the same. There might be slight differences in GHG emissions due to the crude’s quality or the relative cleanliness of local production and transportation practices, but these differences are generally small on a “wells to wheels” basis. It’s disappointing to see Vancouver residents unaware that tankers have run crude oil and petroleum products through Vancouver Harbour since 1915 (the start-up of Imperial’s Port Moody reﬁnery) without incident. Few know that 70 per cent of B.C.’s crude and petroleum products are imported by a combination of tankers and pipelines. All petroleum for Vancouver Island and Haida Gwai is tankered to them and many other B.C. ports. If these tankers and pipelines did not exist, we would all be walking or on bicycles, and have no way to get food and other goods to citizens.

Chinese FIPA now a lose-lose proposition
“I am writing as Chair of the St’at’imc Chiefs Council to ﬁrmly express, advise and direct the Government of Canada to reject the Foreign Investment Protection and Promotion Agreement [FIPA] with China as the Government of Canada has breached its obligations to consult. . . .” Chief Garry John, Nov. 1
ADDRESSING his letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Seton Lake Indian Band Chief Garry John urged the federal government to halt ratiﬁcation of the CanadaChina investment agreement until it has “satisfactorily addressed its legal obligations to (aboriginal) Title and Rights.” In doing so, he added the voice of the St’at’imc Chiefs Council to that of Ontario chiefs and the growing clamour of other demands that the federal government outright shred its proposed Canada-China investment agreement. Kudos to Chief John; he and other First Nations stand a far better chance of being heard — by both Harper and B.C. Premier Christy Clark — than do the rest of us. The St’at’imc council also
Elizabeth James has a more accurate sense of what it takes to defend citizens’ rights in a democracy than the governments we keep returning to power. Pointing out that “both Canada and China have adopted the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,” John cites Article 19 of that document which says, “States shall consult and co-operate in good faith” with those peoples, “in order to obtain their free, prior and informed consent before adopting and implementing legislative and administrative measures that may affect them.” Here I thought that was what Parliament was all about. Not so, according to John who might also have been speaking for you and me when he continued: “Our rights are human rights. Yet Canada repeatedly violates them.” Welcome to our world, Chief John.
Given their outright majority in Parliament, if Minister of State Gordon O’Connor whips the Conservatives into line, the result of a vote to ratify FIPA is a foregone conclusion. So why not allow the House to at least discuss it out in the open? Why “breach its obligations to consult” all of our representatives in the House? Why did FIPA drop off the government radar when Harper left for his foray in India? Could it be that Harper has a termite in the woodpile of his too-secretive negotiations with China? Is he looking for a face-saving way not to approve the deal? The answers to those questions may be more important than they appeared when I wrote my Oct. 31 column and here are some of the reasons why: Two days after that column arrived in your mailbox, Industry Minister Christian
Paradis announced that the deadline for completion of Canada’s review of stateowned CNOOC’s $15-billion attempt to purchase Alberta’s oil-sands giant Nexen Inc. had been extended to Dec. 10. Both countries agreed to Canada’s last-minute extension, but it’s doubtful China did so without considerable arm-twisting on our part — especially when the word in investment circles is that federal approval now will be contingent upon Canada tightening up the regulations that govern foreign ownership by state-owned corporations. If China refuses yet another extension should we fail to meet the Dec. 10 deadline, Canada’s only option at that point would be to reject the deal outright — an outcome many Canadians would applaud. Is that what Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has in mind? What did he learn from
his counterparts at the recent G20 meetings in Mexico City about their experience with foreign investors? Whichever way the decision goes FIPA is a loselose situation for the Harper government. Reject the deal and Chinese investors go away bearing a grudge. Ratify the deal and risk upsetting Canadian voters enough they return the Conservatives to minority status or worse. It’s not just NIMBY voters who are grumbling. According to John Ibbitson writing in the Nov. 6 Globe and Mail, a letter written by Manitoba Conservative MP James Bezan “inadvertently sent” to reporter Jill Winzoski of the Selkirk Record stated that he is “strongly opposed to [FIPA].” Citing “China’s dismal record on human rights and freedoms,” Bezan said he takes “particular exception to allowing a state-owned company from China to
. . . take over publicly traded Canadian companies.” Ibbitson noted Bezan referred to “caucus members such as me. . . .” and rightly asked, “How many” caucus members oppose the deal? By the time Harper arrives home to see that the St’at’imc Chiefs Council and members of his own cabinet and caucus have been added to the expert legal opinions of Osgoode Hall’s Prof. Gus Van Harten, he’ll be wishing he could make a few side trips on his way home to run out the clock to the Christmas break. This time at least, those of us who oppose this off-loading of Canadian sovereignty have knowledgeable and impressive voices at our backs. We should thank them for that because, as Chief John reminds us, our rights also are human rights — and we’re tired of governments that repeatedly violate them. firstname.lastname@example.org

City council cool on Kinder Morgan’s plan Brent Richter email@example.com
CITY of North Vancouver council had some skeptical questions last week for proponents of a pipeline project that would result in ﬁve times as many oil tankers passing through Burrard Inlet. Representatives of Kinder Morgan appeared before council Nov. 5 to answer questions and clear up some misconceptions about their plan to twin the Trans Mountain pipeline, which runs from Edmonton to Burnaby’s Westridge terminal. Kinder Morgan spokesman Mike Davies stressed to council that there are several popular myths circulating about what Trans Mountain’s expansion would mean for local shipping. “The size of the ships that we load at the Westridge terminal is not going to change as a result of this expansion and we don’t need to dredge Second Narrows,” he said. Also, diluted bitumen, which the Trans Mountain line would carry and load onto tankers bound for the United States and Asia, does ﬂoat, as it is less dense than water, he added. But council had a host of questions about Kinder Morgan’s

The store takes donations of new and used construction materials, appliances and furniture — most of which were destined for landﬁlls — and sells them at vast discounts. The proceeds go towards local Habitat for Humanity projects, including homes for low-income families, and the charity’s administrative costs. The Canadian-made concept started with Winnipeg’s Habitat chapter about 20 years ago and has spread to Habitat chapters across North America. After ﬁnding it has simply too much good stuff to ﬁt into its Burnaby and south Vancouver locations, Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver held a grand opening for its ﬁrst North Shore location at 126 Harbour Ave. on Saturday. Beyond the regular contractors and construction companies dropping off their excess materials, the stores also ﬁnd themselves taking large donations of new material from
retailers, manufacturers and the ﬁlm industry. Whenever a movie shoot wraps, crews break down the sets and there is a ton of material, including lighting, ﬂooring, and furniture ready to be resold. The wide array of donors
means ReStores are stocked with everything from drywall to the kitchen sink — and some bizarre rarities. “It is really amazing. It’s one of the things I love about the See Store page 10

store. You never really know what’s going to come in. . . . We get a lot of really nice complete kitchens in. We get large appliances, lighting, ﬂoors, doors, windows,” said ReStore manager Tom Riessner. “I’ve had cofﬁns donated. I’ve had full phone booths. I’ve had vintage luggage carts from CN Rail. The weirdest thing I ever picked up was 1,000 six-foot cedar trees. We sold them all.” The store is particularly popular with do-it-yourselfers who want to get a job done but don’t have a real estate developer’s budget,
and folks who want to see their projects done in an environmentally friendly way. “Pricing is really good. That’s what people love about us. Brand new, we sell at half of retail. Used material is anywhere from 75 to 95 per cent off depending on condition and age,” Riessner said. Not only do the stores provide cheap alternatives, they are remarkably effective at keeping material out of landﬁlls, Riessner said. “On average, a store our size will divert about 500 tons per year from landﬁll, based on our sales and probably an additional 150 to 200 tons with our metal, cardboard and plastic recycling. Basically,
everything we get for donations would have gone to the garbage if not for us.” In keeping with the store’s habit of accepting strange but treasured donations, Riessner found the store’s new landlord was ﬁrst on the list in making an unexpected but affectionate, purring donation. “When he moved his ofﬁce to the back, the cat was supposed to come with him but the cat had other ideas,” Riessner said. Now, kind-natured Princess will be on hand to greet customers and keep volunteers company when she’s not napping in the store window. “The volunteers just gravitate to her when they come in the door. That’s gold for me. Volunteers really love her and so she’s become the unofﬁcial mascot of the building,” he said “She pops out four or ﬁve times a day to see what people around the store are doing and to get in the way.”

Coun. Craig Keating Davies on the ability to respond to a spill that may happen at the Westridge terminal, similar to the one that happened in 2007, when a spill on land leaked into a sewer outﬂow and into Burrard Inlet, including some that escaped the protective boom meant to isolate spilled oil. The Western Canada Marine Response Corporation responded quickly, Davies said, and would be stationed nearby. “There was a sheen outside of the boom. There was some material outside the boom but the majority of the material was captured by the WCMRC” Davies said. The company has reported

business, the approval process with the National Energy Board, and the environmental risk that pipeline and shipping communities faced. Coun. Craig Keating was the most critical, noting that the environmental process Kinder Morgan must go through will not take into account the energy-intensive process of extracting oil sands or the consequences of increased carbon in the atmosphere and climate change that results. “I don’t think we’re looking that far upstream in terms of production issues . . . for a pipeline project that’s not normally part of an application,” Davies said. The pipeline issue needs to be put in the larger context of climate change, hurricanes and the federal government’s policy of encouraging the extraction of oil sands and selling them abroad, Keating argued. “Talk to the people in Richmond and White Rock and Delta where the sea is there. It is rising and it’s because of policies like this. We have to have a discussion about whether we want a pipeline that facilitates this sort of thing,” he said. Coun. Don Bell questioned
having 78 spills on its pipeline since 1961, some of which were smaller than the 1.5 cubic metres required to be reported, but never had a spill while loading a marine tanker ship, Davies said. There is a hypocrisy associated with the federal government’s support of oil exports at a time when other levels of government are looking for ways to reduce carbon output, Coun. Pam Bookham noted. “I can’t square the idea that we are supposed to be reducing our own energy consumption at the same time we are promoting this component of our economy. It just doesn’t make sense,” she said. Mayor Darrell Mussatto acknowledged the doubleedged sword that is being a country rich in fossil fuels. “I think the issue of expanding fossil fuels will soon be the issue of our time. “It’s quite a complex issue. On one hand, we’re dealing with the consequences of increased carbon in our atmosphere and the effects of climate change. . . . At the same time, Canada relies on exporting natural resources, some of which are coal, oil and gas, to keep our lifestyle the way we have it,” he said.

FALLEN leaves of crimson and gold add colour to the garden during our grey autumn weather.
Resist urge to clean, preen PRACTICAL GEEK Technology writer Barry Link answers readers’ questions about cutting the cord to cable TV. page 17
Todd Major SOME people call me a lazy gardener because I don’t regularly clean and preen my garden in the fall.
A case in point: we recently had a family friend from Calgary come and stay with us for a week. Shortly after his arrival he asked me for a tour of our garden.
My collection of plants is by no means botanically rare, but I grow some cool plants and have a few extraordinary specimens like the giant gunnera in the backyard, which amazed my guest. After walking around the garden for an hour or so while enjoying some local B.C. wine, our conversation turned to garden cleanliness. My friend asked, “How on earth can you stand the mess in the garden?” I knew exactly what he meant but I pressed him to be more speciﬁc. He resisted — probably out of courtesy — but I pressed him again. He explained, “You know, all those fallen leaves, dying plants, withering summer ﬂowers and your lawn looks like someone dropped a bunch of weeds and other plants on it — like that little brown-leaved thing (Ajuga species) that’s
growing everywhere in the lawn.” I explained to him that perennials don’t die in the fall; they retract green energy from the leaf. And all of those brilliantly coloured orange, red and yellow leaves add colour to the garden during our grey fall weather. As for the lawn, I told him my wife and I like some lawn but we realize that an obsessively managed lawn deprives our children of the world’s natural resources that they will need in their future and that understanding cured our manic lawn obsession. Similar conversations probably happen in the fall between families, friends and foes discussing the appearance of their neighbours’ gardens. Am I a lazy gardener? A slacker? Maybe I just don’t care? I am not lazy and I do care but my perception and

approach to gardening is based on natural rhythms and using low-input, high-return practices that enhance the garden’s health over the long term. For example, cutting back perennials too early in the fall deprives those plants of much needed green energy that is withdrawn from the leaves and stored in the roots during winter. Raking and scraping the garden bed’s surface down to bare soil may suit vanity’s needs and a desire to order the world around us, but ultimately, removal of all organic matter reduces soil fertility and plant health. Admittedly, the average homeowner has been conditioned by their parents and the outdated norms of 1950s society to believe that a clean garden is a healthy

An expert’s guide to glamping ■ Glamping with MaryJane by MaryJane Butters (Gibbs Smith Publishers, 224 pages) $29
THE traditional trailer is given a makeover to get in touch with its feminine side under the direction of MaryJane Butters. Adding some glamour to the camping experience with
creative decorations, additional comforts, and a sense of style gave birth to “glamping.” Author MaryJane Butters embraced this approach to the outdoors and came up with a delightful companion guide. More than just a nod to adding some nice curtains and cutlery, Butters provides plenty of suggestions on how to get started, ﬁrst on choosing the right trailer, trouble signs to look for in your inspection, interior renovations, and
much more. Once you have your trailer ready to go then Butters discusses trailer hitches, setting up at the campsite, recycling on the road, tool kits and basic repairs, and pretty much anything you could think of. Butters has gone into tremendous detail for every aspect of glamping and done it with style. Every chapter is ﬁlled with photographs and illustrations, making this book as visually

A ReStore is opening in North Vancouver on Nov. 17th At Habitat for Humanity ReStores, it’s all about making a difference in the community. And starting on Nov. 17th, 2012 at 10am, North Shore residents can learn about how our ReStores quickly become one of the community pillars.
If so, you may want to take a look at a professional stager to help you in this process. Many homeowners today are looking to staging and redesigning companies to assist them in selling their home. The real estate market is very competitive these days and so it can be advantageous Home Ideas to have a professional edge Barb Lunter when it comes to ﬁrst impressions of your home. Professional stagers are especially useful if you have already moved out of your home and it remains an empty space. Most real estate agents will agree that a home with a “lived in” feel is much more attractive to a potential home buyer than one that feels empty and cold. If this is something that may appeal to you, here is a little of what a professional stager can offer. Staging companies typically do a “pre-staging” consultation with the homeowner and give them a bit of homework that should be done prior to the actual staging. This would include a list of speciﬁc repairs, painting, cleaning and de-cluttering of the home. If required, furniture, accessories and art will be suggested and the option of renting these items can be explored. See Service page 15

Service starts with consultation From page 14 Once the property has been prepped, stagers will come in and do their magic. Furniture will be rearranged to best suit each room, opening up spaces. It’s possible that art will be re-hung and accessories moved to create focal points. Ideally, stagers will arrange furnishings to highlight the property’s best features and attempt to downplay the weaker aspects of the home. Typically, one to two days is all that is required and the property would be photoready for advertising. As far as pricing goes, to have a team of stagers come into your home for the day would depend on the size and scope of the project. An initial in-home consultation is the best way to get an idea of the costs and time involved. The fee for a “pre-staging” consultation starts at $100 plus HST, with the session taking about an hour to complete. It’s important for homeowners to understand that stagers will come into your home with an objective eye. One must think of staging as a part of the marketing plan for selling their property. It is not a decorator service as many

Laundry space multi-purpose THE modern laundry room has moved far beyond the often illconsidered layouts of the past, with washer/ dryer tucked away in a poorly lit basement, to become a dynamic, contemporary space that meets a wide range of speciﬁc needs and requirements.
Building by Design Kevin Vallely
In designing a laundry room, or designing any space in a home for that matter, I begin by making observations of the lifestyle of the homeowners that will be using it and then follow-up with lots and lots of questions. Detailed questions draw out the unique personalities of the homeowner and, in turn, inform the design and help shape it to be a true reﬂection of the client and their lifestyle. Are the homeowners an active family with young kids or a more sedentary couple of empty nesters? Do they like to do lots of smaller loads during the week or do they prefer doing a few larger ones on the weekend? Do they fold their clothes in the laundry room or bring it somewhere else and will they iron there? Do they need space to drip-dry clothing? Empty nesters and couples without kids typically prefer their laundry space closer to their master bedroom and their clothes. They generally don’t need a large space for folding and ironing and often only require an alcove area with a small amount of storage to meet their needs. A bump-out in a corridor with front loading washer and dryer — freeing up space for a countertop above— works great for such a scenario and when concealed with fold-away doors, is the perfect setup for efﬁciency and economy of space. With larger households comes larger laundry spaces and typically the need for a separate room. The size of this room and how it functions depends strongly on the answers to those questions I asked above. Some families see the laundry room as a multi-functional space that affords the washing and drying of

More questions from readers
MY recent series of columns about cutting the cable cord to your TV in favour of Internet-based content generated a lot of responses from readers. Last week we got to the ﬁrst batch. Here, we tackle more.
Question: I love watching the NFL, but I can’t seem to ﬁnd it online. I tried several networks and it seems like they want me to buy a package of unlimited watching for (only) $200! That’s a tad rich for just watching the odd game. Any thoughts? Barry in Vancouver Answer: My own quick search couldn’t ﬁnd anything for the NFL online either. I did ﬁnd at least one site offering “free streaming” of televised NFL games and while these might work, I wouldn’t trust sites for “free” on the Internet that isn’t directly from the copyright holder. (See last question below.) The NFL seems to be the one major professional sports league that doesn’t have apps on consoles like the Playstation or Xbox where you can actually watch live games. In contrast, the NHL,
Practical Geek Barry Link
MLB and NBA offer apps on several platforms and devices for on demand viewing with high quality high-deﬁnition video feeds. (The CBC runs live NHL games online for free in those years when there isn’t a lockout.) The kicker of course is that you have to buy a pricey annual subscription and home games in your area are stupidly blacked out. Sports programming remains a potential stumbling block in going cable free. Question: I just read Cutting the Cord Part 1 and wanted to bring your attention to a local webpage hdtv4free.info which gives loads of info on how to make a super simple antenna and get free HDTV. We get CTV,
CBC (watched the Olympics in HD), Global, Citytv, Omni (not HD) just with a tiny antenna. You should check it out because it’s the bees knees. I’m biased since the page belongs to my boyfriend, but, truly, it is ﬁlled with great info. He gets emails from people all over the world who have hooked themselves up with one of these antennas and been blown away by the free digital signals they could pick up. I love having the option of watching local TV in real-time. I generally watch things on the PC, which is plugged into the TV, and switch to the antenna (with a click of the remote) to watch the news or So You Think You Can Dance. We stopped paying for cable TV three years ago and I can’t imagine ever going back. Alethea via email Answer: I looked at the site and am passing it on to our readers. It’s a well thought-out and helpful guide with more information and expertise about antennas than I can provide here. I like the shoebox antenna and the instructions for building it. I’m a fan of the DIY approach when it comes to consumer tech. Speaking of websites,
readers might want to check out TVFool.com and Antennaweb.org, both recommended during a recent Know How video podcast on the online TWiT network. The Canadianbased Digitalhome.ca also has an active forum on getting free HDTV with over-the-air reception.
Question: When are you going to explore the dark side and write about illegal means of getting TV and movies from the Internet? Newsroom colleague Answer: Not any time soon. Downloading copyrighted material without paying through ﬁlesharing methods such as BitTorrent is likely illegal in Canada, despite some greyness in the legality of downloading music ﬁles the same way due to prior court decisions. I’m not completely opposed to ﬁlesharing — there are interesting libertarian/ anarchist arguments in support of it, and I’m not saying I’ve never done it. But I want the people who create the television and movies I enjoy to make a living and want to encourage the proliferation of paid models of distribution. For now, See Beware page 19

garden. Good management practices for the garden in the fall follow several simple principles: Do not use practices or products that cause harm. Add materials that reinforce soil organism and plant relationships. Use low-impact, high-value gardening techniques. Vitally interwoven among these practices is the understanding of tolerance in relation to the season’s rhythms. It is fall, leaves fall and leaf biomass is a valuable food source for the garden’s ﬂora and fauna. Plants retract green energy in fall, which they store as food reserves for next year. Cleanliness can be overdone and is not
always next to goodness. And one person’s perception does not mean that you are lazy if you leave fallen leaves in the garden. This fall as you clean up the garden, try these simple techniques to improve your garden’s health. Let fallen leaves lie; if you cannot, then replace those leaves with fresh, attractive mulch that will appease your perception and feed the soil and plants. Allow your perennials to retract green energy until your eyes hurt and your mind rings with the guilt of not cleaning them up. Leave some dead ﬂower heads in the garden to feed birds and insects over winter. Take care of the lawn as you would a bank account. Don’t spend too much of our resource capital, leave some for our
children. Do not fertilize healthy lawns as they try to go to sleep this fall. If the lawn is healthy, why does it need to be fertilized? Don’t wait to plant until spring when fall provides some of the warmest soil temperatures conducive to plant growth. If you have planting or transplanting to do, then do it now and bed down your new plants with a good layer of life enhancing mulch. At the end of my gardening conversation with my family friend he admitted that his garden is not always the cleanest. I asked: How does that make you feel? He said, “A little guilty. But I thought you were a professional and knew better.” It seems I get asked that question a lot. firstname.lastname@example.org

number of other activities such as model building, sewing, gift wrapping, painting, and the like, activities well suited to a room with lots of counter space and lots of storage. Other households, often the active ones, prefer to incorporate their laundry space with their mudroom. This can be a very successful arrangement allowing the users to dump their clothing directly into the wash without having to traipse
through the house to ﬁnd the washing machine. In such an arrangement I will typically provide space to hangdry athletic gear and I may suggest the addition of a shower as well. A less common but still popular trend is having the laundry facility as part of the kitchen area. In such an arrangement I typically like to make a clear differentiation between the two functions even if their physical relationship is close. An alcove area adjacent to the kitchen with a capacity to be closed off is the ideal setup. The

Find creative solutions to help child face fears YOUR happy-go-lucky toddler has suddenly decided that monsters live under his bed. As a result, trying to get him to settle down at night has become a real challenge.
Irrational fears are a normal stage of toddler development. Toddlers have a vivid imagination and have difﬁculty distinguishing fact from ﬁction. They can also remember past episodes that were scary. So it can take very little for them to overreact to all manner of things. Often these fears include animals, particularly dogs, monsters, the dark or getting lost. It’s important that you not belittle these fears. They may seem silly and pointless but they are very real to your child. Look for children’s books about your child’s fears. You can often ﬁnd reassuring books about a child who handled the monsters under her bed or her fear of the dark. These books let her know that she’s not the only child with the fear, and that with help and support from you, she can conquer it. If she has a more unusual fear you may need to either ﬁnd a more generic story about fear in general or make up a story. You can also encourage him to work through his fear through art or dramatic play. He can draw the monster and then draw himself chasing it away. Or he can act out a victory over his particular fear. Doing something concrete
Parenting Today Kathy Lynn
in this fashion works well for many kids. Night lights or glow-inthe-dark stickers provide enough light to allow kids to look around and see there are no monsters present. Or the light can simply comfort a child who does not like the darkness. Parents have come up with myriad ways to help fearful toddlers settle at night. Here are a few nifty ideas to get your creative juices ﬂowing. A spray bottle with water that you explain is called “Monster Away” does the trick with some kids or a sign on the door saying “No Monsters Allowed.” Or how about a stuffed animal that stands guard at the door or on the bed? Teach her ways to handle her fears. She can learn to take deep, slow breaths whenever she is upset and calm herself. Coming to you and having you hold her hand or cuddle her will also help. While your child is going through this phase, prohibit all scary movies or TV programs. If she starts watching these and she’s
already dealing with a fear, she may develop a whole new category of things that will frighten her. Try not to pass on your fears to your child. If you are unreasonably anxious when you go to the dentist, have someone else take her in for her early dental checkups. Or at the very least talk to the dentist and arrange that you stay in the waiting room and let a staff member take her in to see the dentist. If the dentist does not understand your concern, you probably need a new one. Most dentists understand people’s fears of dental work. Of course, some things you can’t avoid. If you are frightened around dogs, try to stay calm and stand your ground. Knowing that you are helping your child avoid your fear will be great motivation to stay cool. If she overcomes a fear, notice it but don’t push her until she is ready. When she vanquishes the monster in the closet, let out a great hurrah and let her know that she did a good job dealing with this very real problem. Be creative when helping him come up with solutions to his fears. Take a page from the show The King and I and teach her to sing or whistle. The song Whistle a Happy Tune can be a great stress reducer and it’s fun to sing.

Irradiation and the ﬁght against food bacteria
by Rosalind Duane
PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD
hannon Lambie had never planted garlic before. So when she asked what she thought was a simple question, she got an answer that surprised her. As a volunteer with the Edible Garden Project in North Vancouver, Lambie was recently visiting Loutet Farm with local elementary school students. The group was learning about garlic: its lifecycle, how to cook it, and how it grows. After learning how garlic can grow from garlic bulbs planted in soil, Lambie asked one of the Loutet farmers if any garlic clove from store-bought garlic would work for planting. The answer was no. She was told most of the non-organic garlic bulbs sold in stores have been irradiated and so do not sprout. “I was genuinely surprised and concerned that I didn’t know this about our food,” says Lambie, who is completing her master’s degree in International Studies at SFU and is focused on community food production, particularly urban agriculture.
After some online research, she posted a blog on the Edible Garden Project website noting some of her concerns about irradiated food, including that the process contributes to the industrialization of the food system; reduces nutrient content; creates radiolytic products with unknown long-term effects; and it is not 100 per cent effective. “I just thought maybe other people might want to know too,” she says of posting the blog.
Health Canada notes on its website that food irradiation is a method of preserving food by exposing it to radiation energy to kill harmful bacteria. It is used to prevent foodborne illness and spoilage and to increase shelf life. Health Canada says food irradiation is safe for consumers. Lambie says she does believe Health Canada’s claim that food irradiation is probably not very dangerous, but “it might be,” she says, noting the effects are not 100per-cent known. Kevin Allen is an assistant professor of food microbiology in the Food, Nutrition and Health program at UBC. He specializes in foodborne pathogens and their effects on Canada’s food chain. Allen says irradiation was developed more than 100 years ago and extensive research has shown it to be safe. While it does reduce the nutrients in some foods, the reduction is not significant and is less than traditional thermal methods, he notes. “When it’s done properly and when food has been exposed to appropriate irradiation levels there’s absolutely no risk to consumers, and, in fact, the food that results is microbiologically more stable
and microbiologically safe,” he says. “The biggest issue with irradiation is not that the food isn’t safe because that’s absolutely not the case. The biggest issue is that consumers aren’t willing to accept it. They’re worried that their food is going to glow, that it’s going to be radioactive, and that it’s going to cause them harm.” Irradiated food is exposed to certain doses of the energy source. The length of the irradiation affects the dose and the number of microorganisms destroyed. “There is a flip side to that: if food is over-irradiated you can generate what are called radiolytic products and it can represent a risk to the public, but in facilities that do this they certainly use a controlled process that prevents that from happening,” says Allen. In Canada, irradiation is used on some produce, including some potatoes (to prevent them from sprouting). A lot of other countries use irradiation for insect control on many exported foods. Canada imports a lot of spices from Asia that are irradiated. “There is a labeling requirement for foods that are irradiated,” explains Allen. If 10 per cent of the product has been
irradiated then the label has to have a Radura symbol on it, but spices are not identified as irradiated mainly because they are a small constituent of what is used in the cooking process so are not over that 10-percent bar. Canada is connected to the globalized food supply and that has been a source of foodborne disease. However, it’s not just the importation of food that is responsible for foodborne disease, notes Allen. The recent recall of beef from the Alberta-based XL Foods plant due to E. coli contamination is a good example, he notes. Canada does not use irradiation on meat, but Allen says irradiation would have made that beef safer before it was sold. “We simply don’t use it for meat because consumers aren’t willing to accept the technology,” he says. “And it’s really too bad because irradiation is a really attractive intervention from a food-safety perspective.” Allen says it has been estimated that if Canada were to irradiate its food supply it would reduce foodborne disease by up to 25-50 per cent. Consumers play an active role in food safety as well, especially in how they handle food. “They have to do what they can in their home just in case we have failures upstream,” says Allen. “We have to do what we can to protect ourselves. And what we really hope is that the people supplying us with food have done their job and that the government regulations are appropriate and will help contribute to a safe food supply.” Lambie agrees there are things consumers can do. Being engaged with your community and talking with local farmers are ways people can become more connected and get more information about food issues, says Lambie. “I think it’s kind of sad when people don’t know how the food they’re eating got to them, where it came from and what it went through to get to them. Food irradiation is just one of those issues and there’s a lot more,” she says. “I think it would be really great if everyone could be mindful of the whole process.” ●

IS THERE REALLY SUCH A THING AS A SWEET TOOTH? RESEARCHERS HAVE FOUND TWO SWEET-RECEPTOR GENES THAT MAY BE ABLE TO PREDICT A PREFERENCE FOR SWEETS.
INFORMATION RECENTLY PUBLISHED SUGGESTS REGULARLY EATING TOMATOES COULD HELP REDUCE YOUR RISK OF STROKE. THE RESEARCH ALSO SUGGESTS COOKED TOMATOES OFFER MORE PROTECTION THAN RAW.

fter spending years toiling in other people’s kitchens, chef Erik Smith (pictured) says his eczema was at its worst. He taped socks to his hands before going to sleep in order to prevent what he called “psychosis fits” of scratching. (Eczema causes skin irritation and extreme itching.) To keep working, he dropped in at a wound care centre twice a week to have his hands and feet wrapped. Hoping to relieve his stress-based condition, Smith did something unorthodox: he opened a restaurant. “I needed something else in my life. With a little love, money, and a little help from a lot of places, S’wich took shape,” he says. S’wich Café is a North Vancouver lunchtime hub offering a variety of $8 sandwiches with ingredients like zucchini, goat cheese, hickory-smoked mayo, and cranberry orange confit. “The day I turned the key over was the day my skin started getting better,” Smith says. Opening a restaurant is a risky proposition in the best of times, something Smith knows well.
“The classic formula: how do you make a small fortune in the restaurant business? You start with a large fortune,” he says, laughing. The decision to open a modest Queensbury Avenue eatery has served Smith well. “I found my groove, I found my niche, and I found exactly where I need to be in my life,” he says. Starting his culinary career as a teenager in Earl’s dish pit, Smith quickly changed his career plan. “I used to want to be a veterinarian,” he says. “I never knew that cooking was my calling.” That calling has taken him to Mexico and the Okanagan, where he honed his taste for fresh fruit and vegetables. Many of the ingredients at S’wich arrive from Loutet Farm, an edible garden project just off Highway 1. As a restaurateur, one of Smith’s innovations is offering salads in mason jars. “No such thing as Styrofoam in my café,” he says. The price of the salad includes a $1 deposit that’s refunded when the jar is returned. “Remember you saw it here first because I just have a feeling it’s one of those things that’s going to catch
on,” he says. As his business has increased, Smith has had to step away from his other passion: rodeo. “I’ve wrecked myself a few times, that’s kind of why I’m sort of tapering off here. I didn’t really go hard this year because I’ve sort of broken into catering,” he says. “I’m not going to go to a rodeo the week before somebody’s wedding in case I break my arm. I’ve decided to make decisions that are best for the company and the business rather than my own personal little adrenalin rush.” S’wich has been open for more than a year, something Smith attributes to his neighbourhood. “I came in there on a severely limited budget with almost no operating capital,” he says, noting customers from the neighbourhood helped him build a sign and frame it, and an electrician helped him rig up 220 power so he could install his panini press. “It’s very much the café that Queensbury built.” –Jeremy Shepherd

It may be a small facility (just 1,000 square feet), but Bridge Brewing Company has some big ideas. The North Vancouver “nano” brewery opened for business in July, and is serving up all-natural beer with just four ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water. Founder Jason Stratton (pictured) explains most of the commercial beer manufacturers in Canada use clarifying agents in their beer, many of which are made from fish and animal by-products. Some beers also contain high levels of corn syrup, he notes. “One thing that’s unique about our beer is that it’s unfiltered and we don’t use any processing agents,” says Stratton. A full-time accountant when he’s not at the brewery, Stratton says the idea to start the business grew out of discussions with his wife Leigh, probably over some beers. Originally from North Vancouver, the couple had been in Alberta for about seven years where Stratton was working for a large company when they decided to return to the North Shore. “When we came back we wanted to do something fun,” he says with a laugh. Stratton and his wife are joined at the brewing company by friend and brewer Patrick Doré. “Part of the whole idea was to be green and sustainable and just try to make a product that people really enjoy. I don’t think there’s any grand intentions of becoming wealthy from the business,” he explains. “If it pays for itself I think we’re all going to be very happy.” The company is also striving to achieve zero waste, and in pursuit of quality ingredients, they are sourcing organic hops and grains. When asked how much he knew about brewing beer before starting Bridge Brewery, Stratton admits with a laugh: “Absolutely nothing.” It has been a learning experience. “I may not have made beer (before) but I certainly love to drink it.” –Rosalind Duane

IN THE FIELD
Introducing the SPA493
Little price difference found between grocery stores and farmers’ markets
PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD
t has been 25 years in the making, but apple lovers have a new variety to sink their teeth into. The new apple variety, named Salish, was introduced at UBC’s annual apple festival in early October. Previously known as SPA493, the Salish apple was created from a cross-pollination made in the early 1980s between Splendour and Gala varieties. A press release from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada noted Salish is a medium-sized apple with thin skin. The texture is crispy, firm and tangy. Its appearance is 80 per cent solid cherryred blush over a yellow base colour. The release notes that the Salish apple variety is Canadian and non-genetically modified. The development of the new variety was led by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada researchers at the Pacific Agri-Food Centre in Summerland, working closely with the Okanagan Plant Improvement Corporation to test it with growers. Salish is grown by orchardists in the Okanagan Valley and is harvested in mid to late October. ●
recent press release from the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets notes that a study by Seattle University between 2003-2011 found organic fruits and vegetables in season are either cheaper or of equal value at a farmers’ market. The B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets is looking at how farmers’ market prices compare with grocery stores. Preliminary findings in six B.C. communities indicate that conventional and organic products at farmers’ markets are the same price or less than at grocery stores. In Vancouver, 11 out of 15 conventional and organic fruits and vegetables compared were the same price or less. Products were compared at three major grocery chains and the majority had very few B.C. products on their shelves despite being in the middle of B.C.’s prime agricultural season. Only B.C.-owner Save-On-Foods carried a decent selection of B.C. product. Farmers’ markets often have more organic selection and this can make them seem expensive, but the price of equivalent products is generally the same or less than in grocery stores. ●

Add a little magic to your mushrooms passed to neighbours and kept going for years, a mushroom bed can keep producing for many years with little upkeep. Although wood chips, straw or soil from a well-established mushroom patch can
PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD
here was a time when North Vancouver gardener Brian Didier (pictured) didn’t pay much attention to the mushrooms popping up in his backyard. “I remember years ago, there were mushrooms growing in my backyard and my neighbour’s mother came over, an older woman from Germany,” says Didier. “She got all excited about these mushrooms and wanted to come over and pick them and eat them.” The retired Telus technician, who is an enthusiastic wild mushroom spotter and gatherer, has since tried just about every method of growing mushrooms in his Lynn Valley garden: a shiitake log, mushrooms growing out of a bale of straw and from a trench filled with wood chips. “The last couple of years I’ve had two fruitings of shaggy mane mushrooms popping up in one spot and oysters in another spot,” says Didier. Popping up suddenly, strangely shaped and associated with supernatural creatures, mushrooms seem to belong to the wild, and to reward those who take the time to hunt them out in the deep, dark woods. But tasty mushrooms are actually quite easy to grow in backyard gardens, and can be a great way to use shady areas of your yard. “Stropharia lends itself well to cultivation and is quite flavourful,” recommends Scott Henderson, a Vancouver-based mushroom lover who makes and sells growing kits through his online business, The Mushroom Man (shroomstore.ca). Also known as the wine cap mushroom, stropharia can grow to the size of a Portobello mushroom. It can be grilled on the barbecue and has a rich taste similar to the Portobello. In his lab in East Vancouver, Henderson inoculates sterile wood chips with wine cap mushroom mycelia – the thin, white tendrils that grow underground, slowly breaking down the wood chips and using the nutrients. As early as August and into the fall, the mushrooms will “fruit,” the only visible part of a complex hidden network. Using the wood chip method, gardeners can dig a shallow trench and layer the inoculated wood chips with newly bought wood chips that have been soaked overnight. It’s important to only use new woodchips, says Henderson, because old chips that have already been used may have picked up the spawn from other mushrooms growing in the wild. Continue layering, “like a lasagna,” until you have about four layers of inoculated and noninoculated chip. Like a sourdough starter that can
be passed to a fellow grower, Henderson recommends beginners stick to a prepared, sterile kit for the best hopes of success. The top of the mushroom bed can also be covered with soil and incorporated into the rest of your garden; plants growing next to the mushrooms will provide much-needed shade. Once you’ve mastered wine caps, you may want to move on to tackle trickier varieties. Shiitake and oyster mushrooms can be grown in a log. Dowels or sawdust inoculated with mushroom spawn are inserted into holes, and the mushrooms appear on the surface of the log. It can take between a year and a year and a half for this method to yield mushrooms. Didier and Henderson both say freshness and variety are good reasons to grow your own. “You’re not going to find stropharia in the grocery store,” says Henderson, adding that since mushrooms are 90 per cent water, they really do taste best when freshly picked. “Usually they barely get out of the frying pan. I’ll cook them up and my daughter and I will eat them right out of the frying pan,” says Didier. “They don’t get very far.” – Jen St. Denis

Fishmeal for ﬁrst mates
hen Michael Florian (pictured) first moved to B.C. from Montreal as a young man he took a job as a deck hand on the fishing vessel Taplow. The Taplow was built in 1945 as part of the gumboot navy, the informal name of the Fisherman’s Reserve, a reserve unit within the Canadian navy. Members of the gumboot navy were fishermen who would look for submarines while they were fishing. Florian worked his way through the ranks fishing out of Prince Rupert, halibut fishing in the gulf of Alaska, and dragging and trolling for salmon, until he was able to buy the boat. After 15 years as a commercial fisherman, Florian sold the boat but kept the name for his new company: Taplow Ventures Limited. “It was a nice boat; it was a very lucky boat, and that’s why when I left the fishing industry I kept the name,” he explains. Today, Taplow, the company, produces a unique seafood-based pet food called FirstMate. FirstMate’s head office is located in Deep Cove and its manufacturing plant is in Chilliwack. The idea for the pet food kibble was inspired by Florian’s experience with guard dogs in the 1980s. At the time, fish farms had guard dogs to protect their stock from predators. Florian was selling fish feed under the name Taplow Feeds, and was told the dogs were eating the feed. The operators asked Florian if he could create a pet food that would satisfy the dogs’ seafood craving and FirstMate was born. “The dogs loved it,” says Florian. As opposed to other products that just
use the head and frames (bones, tail and skin) of the fish, FirstMate products are made from the entire fish, notes Florian. It’s made at a low temperature and (especially anchovies and sardines) is made on board the catching vessel, so it’s very fresh, he adds. The pet food uses a high-quality fish meal that is produced by cooking the fish at a low temperature to separate the oil and the meat, then drying the meat and grinding it into a powder so it’s almost like flour. Some fishmeal only contains 50 per cent protein and is not very digestible but Taplow’s food contains 70 per cent protein and is very digestible, says Florian. “It’s a very high quality,” he adds. That same fishmeal and oil is also used for Taplow’s organic fish feed for aquaculture. Among the fish used in the feed are local herring, sardines and anchovies. FirstMate also produces pet food featuring Australian lamb, as well as a grain-free formula and a chicken-andblueberry option. “We’re the only company that I know of that puts in a large amount of fresh blueberries into our food,” says Florian. The fresh or frozen blueberries used in the food are local, he notes. In a few weeks, Taplow is planning to release its first line of canned pet food. “That’s very exciting for us,” says Florian, noting the food will be produced in a human-grade cannery and will feature fish, chicken and turkey options for both cats and dogs. FirstMate pet food is available at stores on the North Shore. — Rosalind Duane

BURMA – RIVERS OF FLAVOR by Naomi Duguid
Nestled between Thailand, Laos, China, and Bangladesh, Burma’s myriad dishes seem to have been touched by all of its neighbours to create a flavour distinctly its own. The tastes, textures, sights, and scents of Burma’s central river valleys and outlying hills are all captured in this book. Author Naomi Duguid delves into a little of the history of Burma, but primarily focuses on turmeric sizzling in oil, salads with mango and pomelo and karp curry with herbs. The recipes are generally simple, often featuring shallots, lime juice, and chopped, roasted peanuts. While the country has seen Buddhist monks and invading Mongols, Duguid describes the kitchen table as a political sanctuary. – JS List price – $35

Red Nose needs drivers
T’S that magical time of year when reindeer learn to fly and mid-sized sedans sprout antlers while a bright red nose blooms on the grille. Operation Red Nose is currently looking for volunteers to help impaired drivers get home safely this Christmas season. Traditionally, poor weather conditions, limited visibility, and the plethora of cocktails served at office parties and holiday gatherings have made December one of the most dangerous months on the road. In a bid to make the winter streets as safe as possible, Operation Red Nose has been functioning as a volunteer-based designated driver service in B.C. for the last 17 years. Besides picking up drivers who’ve imbibed a few too many Christmas spirits, the service also dispatches a second driver to make sure everyone’s car gets back home. Drivers are slated to hit the roads beginning on November 30 and continuing through Dec. 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and New Year’s Eve. Last year, 4,241 Operation Red Nose volunteers drove approximately 188,000 kilometres across B.C. to give revelers the chance to revel again. While the group is best known for getting intoxicated driver’s home safely, the service also provides a lift for anyone who is unable to drive, whether due to sickness, fatigue, or other factors. Chris Wilson, chairman of the Burnaby, New Westminster and Tri-Cities arms of Operation Red Nose, noted in a press release that the group’s dedication to savings lives and preventing collisions is profound. He said the program makes a huge difference by preventing tragedy on local roads. Because the group is entirely volunteer-based, donations made to Operation Red Nose are funneled into non-profit continued on page 35

Holiday hosting tips The holiday season will soon arrive and with it will come holiday parties. A recent press release from Jackson-Triggs winery notes that while guests have it made, hosts have some work to do. JacksonTriggs has collaborated with hosting specialist Karen Cleveland to offer the following tips. List everything you need to buy and set mini deadlines for getting it all. If any of the prep work can be done early, get it all out of the way. When stocking up, check out the boxed wine selection too. Boxed wines are easy to use if you’re prepouring a few trays of wine to have
ready as guests arrive. Don’t stress about décor. Keep it basic. Try all-white with lots of greenery like magnolia and boxwood, which last and look great without being overdone. Anticipate guests’ arrival by having music on, wine pre-poured, snacks ready, and a place for coats, accessories and boots. Don’t be a slave to the party. Freshen the food and your guests’ glasses throughout the night, but remember to get out and enjoy your own party. Plan to take some relaxation time the next day to put your feet up and bask in your hosting success.

FIVE GREAT REASONS TO CONSIDER BOXED WINE OVER THE HOLIDAYS:
The Internet is loaded with tales of the history of gingerbread. A quick scan reveals gingerbread has been around for a long, long time. However, the recipe has changed over the years, including a very early version made with breadcrumbs. Although the history of how gingerbread made its way across Europe and over to North America changes depending on the online source, many agree that gingerbread houses were one of the first forms of the sweet treat associated with the holidays. The gingerbread house was made popular by the Brothers Grimm tale Hansel and Gretel, and first took root in Germany. Since then, gingerbread flavour has become a holiday staple. It is now included in a variety of products, including candy, baking, and even cereal.
INGREDIENTS 350 g plain flour, plus extra for rolling out 1 tsp baking soda 2 tsp ground ginger 1 tsp ground cinnamon 125 g butter 175 g light soft brown sugar 1 free-range egg 4 tbsp golden syrup Icing (for decorating) Cake decorations INSTRUCTIONS Sift together the flour, baking soda, ginger and cinnamon and pour into the bowl of a food processor. Add the butter and blend until the mix looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar. Lightly beat the egg and golden syrup together, add to the food processor and pulse until the mixture clumps together. Tip the dough out, knead briefly until smooth, wrap in plastic wrap and leave to chill in the fridge for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line two baking trays with parchment paper. Roll the dough out to a one-quarter-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Using cutters, cut out the gingerbread men shapes and place on the baking tray, leaving a gap between them. For decorations, use a skewer to make a small hole in the top of each biscuit. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Leave on the tray for 10 minutes and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling. When cooled decorate with the icing and cake decorations. RECIPE SOURCE: BBC

groups, primarily organizations supporting youth and amateur sport. Every year youth groups receive more than $1.3 million from Operation Red Nose across Canada, Wilson said in the release. The designated driver service was created in 1984 by a Laval University professor in a bid to keep Quebec City streets safe. The service has caught on in seven provinces in Canada, attracting nearly 60,000 volunteers in 2011. Those volunteers ferried at least 85,000 drivers home last year,
according to a release from Operation Red Nose. The service is sponsored throughout 25 B.C. communities by ICBC. Jill Blacklock, ICBC’s road safety manager, said in the release that ICBC is proud to support a remarkable community initiative like Operation Red Nose because roads are safer thanks to the program and its many dedicated volunteers. ICBC provides insurance for Operation Red Nose volunteers. The insurance corporation also promotes the annual initiative. The volunteer group is currently looking for escort drivers, who take the driver home, volunteer drivers, who take the impaired driver’s car home, and navigators. Phone operators and dispatchers are also needed to keep things running smoothly through December. To get a ride on any of the designated days, call 1-877-604-NOSE (6673).

’Tis the season for sending
If you haven’t already booked a flight for the holidays, it’s probably too late. If you want to fly within Canada, that is. There are plenty of cheap flights to sunny destinations abroad, but for those just hoping to get home for the holidays to visit family, December is not a good time to travel. Already in early November, a return flight to Toronto during the week of December 23-January 7 on either of the two major airlines in Canada will cost just under (and more than for some flights) $2,000 for two people. This would be a good time to launch into an angry editorial about the lack of airline competition in Canada that keeps home destinations out of reach for so many. However, the chance of a working-class traveller’s complaints reaching a positive resolution is as likely as Santa showing up to give stranded transplants a ride home in his sled.
Instead, it’s time to start thinking about sending gifts home. The following are some notes for those new to mailing gifts across the country.
1. Prepare your package at home.
Posting packages takes planning
Post offices are very busy places during the holiday season. It is almost certain you will have to wait in line. Although there is usually a small table for customers to affix stamps to their parcels, this small space is usually full. Trying to tape up your box at the counter is very poor post-office-lineup etiquette. The 10 people standing behind you waiting to get to the counter will not be amused. Take a few minutes at home to completely seal and address your box before bringing it to the post office. 2. Be sure to choose the right size box for the gifts. The cost of mailing a package is based on the weight and the size of the package. Use the smallest box possible. Post offices sell mailing boxes in various sizes. If you use a box you already have at home, make sure it is in good shape. A wilted cardboard handme-down from five years ago probably isn’t going to protect your gift well. The box should be sturdy. If you wrap the box completely in plain paper, it can be re-used once the paper is removed. 3. Use scrunched-up newspaper or something similar to stabilize your gift inside the box. 4. Seal all the seams of the box with packing tape. Do not use string. 5. Make sure to write the complete mailing address (including the recipient’s full name, city, province and postal code) on the front of the box, and the return mailing address on the top left corner of the box. Once your box is fully prepared, head to the post office and expect to wait a bit. It probably won’t be a fast trip. And remember: What you send is just as important as how you send it. When you’re shopping for gifts to ship, think about the size, shape and weight of the gift. An awkward shape will be difficult to fit in a box, and the bigger and heavier the gift is, the more expensive it will be to send. Avoid mailing anything that can spill, drip or break along the way. Although gift cards seem like the perfect size and shape for mailing, mailing gift cards is similar to sending cash in the mail, which may not be a good idea. Many stores offer online ordering with free shipping after your bill reaches a certain amount. It may be cheaper to send an item directly from the online store to your recipient without having to mail it personally. A lot of these stores also offer free gift-wrapping with purchase. One of the most important things to consider about mailing gifts is timing. During the holidays, it can take at least two weeks for parcels to reach their destinations, so plan accordingly.

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 -
You may think it’s too early for Christmas music. But chances are good that retail stores will soon start pumping out sweet holiday sounds if they haven’t already. Holiday music is annoying to some; to others it’s uplifting. And while many may say the choice of top Christmas classics is subjective, it’s not really. We all know the songs that get your foot tapping under your work desk and make you sing along in your car even if other drivers are watching. Some are nostalgic and some are catchy. The following is a list of the best holiday classics that will soon be crowding the airwaves. The good news is most of them are now available on iTunes so you can complain about Christmas music to co-workers and then listen to it secretly on your iPod. First, there are two songs that are probably over-played at Christmas but are both hilarious: I want a Hippopatamus for Christmas (sung by Gayla Peevey) and Dominick the Donkey (sung by Lou Monte). These two songs have created a friendly rivalry among fans who say one or the other is funnier. Gayla Peevey was just 10 years old when she recorded her song in 1953, and while the lyrics are humorous, it’s the way she belts out the song from her belly in a style that seems well beyond her years that is even more amusing. Lou Monte’s donkey song is great both for its catchy tune and funny lyrics about an Italian Christmas donkey who travels with Santa to visit his paesans because “the reindeer cannot climb the hills of Italy.” Nothing will get you singing like Mary’s Boy Child by Boney M., or Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer by the Irish Rovers. And if you aren’t singing along with a serious expression to Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid, you either weren’t around in 1984, or you are passed out from too much eggnog. Nothing will get you dancing like Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee or Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano, but it’s Christmas in Hollis by Run DMC that will really bring out your hip moves and finally show your kids how cool you are. (This is more effective if you wear large gold chains and oversized, white Adidas sneaks while you’re performing in the living room.) The following is a wrap-up of some more classics: The most annoying song (but you can’t help singing): The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late) by Alvin and the Chipmunks. The song most likely to melt a cold, humbug heart: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Johnny Mathis. The songs with a bit of sass: Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms and Anita Kerr and Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt. The song that will tug at your heartstrings: Peace on Earth/ Little Drummer Boy by the unlikely duo of Bing Crosby and David Bowie. The song that will cause you to pause and reflect on happier times: White Christmas by Bing Crosby. Let’s face it, anything by Bing Crosby.

The song that will make your hips shimmy: Blue Christmas by Elvis Presley. The song that might make you hungry: The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) by Nat King Cole. The song to rock out to with an air guitar: Santa Clause is Coming to Town by Bruce Springsteen. The song you can’t help bobbing your head to (don’t strain your neck): A Holly, Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives. A song to make you angry at both the major Canadian airlines because they’re too expensive: There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays by The Carpenters. A great remake: Winter Wonderland by the Eurythmics.
A song that feels a little out-of-season because of the band name: Little St. Nick by the Beach Boys. And finally, a song that is mandatory at some point: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (version optional). ROSALIND DUANE

Ginger ﬁne fresh or frozen New site has more people
Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard
AN important ingredient in many Asian cuisines, ginger is believed to have therapeutic properties, among them soothing upset stomachs and stimulating appetite.
Deana Lancaster Contributing Writer
CONTRARY to what some might think, it is not easy or fun to write a review that includes criticism.
Ginger is available in many forms: knobby fresh gingerroot, pickled ginger (a classic condiment with sushi), ground ginger for baking, and sweet candied or preserved ginger in syrup. In liquid form there’s ginger tea, ale, wine or beer. When buying fresh ginger choose a smooth, ﬁrm, lightcoloured root. If it’s wrinkled or soft the ﬂesh inside will likely be dry and ﬁbrous. Store ginger in a plastic bag in the refrigerator or freeze it. You can grate frozen ginger into your dishes and re-freeze the remainder for later use. A good way to remove the peel from fresh ginger is to scrape it off with the tip of a small spoon (it makes it easier to navigate around the little ginger “moguls”).

It will be followed by emails from those who disagree with my opinion; from those who think I should say nothing if I can’t say something nice; and from some who would attack my integrity. (For the record, if you do the latter, I am unlikely to respond.) But it matters that I tell the truth. If I’m not honest when a meal is less than great, how will you know to trust me when I say it’s top notch? And my meal last week at Blue Eyed Marys in West Vancouver was just that: excellent. After a successful 13-year run on Bowen Island, the eatery’s husband-and-wife owners moved operations to West Vancouver. Why did they do it? “West Vancouver has something Bowen doesn’t,” joked co-owner Stephen Biddiscombe when we asked him during our dinner service. “More people.” So far, the move has proved fortuitous — the neighbours have been packing into the place. My ﬁrst attempt to visit was thwarted by a lack of available tables, but when we ﬁnally landed one it was worth the wait. See Tight page 40

along with chef Kindy Riley, is focused and thoughtful. Dishes change depending on the season and what ingredients are available. During our meal, there were just three starters to choose from ($9-$12): squash and apple soup with whisky cream, greens in an apple cider vinaigrette, and a goat cheese tart. The greens — a mix of crisp butter, red and green leaf lettuces — were just coated in the-sweet-tart vinaigrette, studded with creamy blue cheese, and dressed with an addictive walnut blue cheese shortbread. The tart’s airy pastry came layered with goat cheese, roasted beets and watercress. Mains ($22-$28) ran from a vegetarian option of eggplant fritters with almond pilaf, to sableﬁsh and bison steak. There
were just ﬁve of them, and it suited me ﬁne. I would much rather see a tight menu of wellexecuted dishes than a long, haphazard list of meals that fall short. My slow-roasted pork was like autumn on a plate: a tone-perfect arrangement of beautifully juicy pork, roasted root vegetables and grapes drizzled in jus. Bison ﬂat iron steak was a revelation — deeply ﬂavoured and tender, sided by a horseradish-pancetta griddle cake and laced with a shallot reduction. The wine list is similarly concise, with unique bottles from around B.C., including the Herder Meritage from the Similkameen Valley we tried with our meal. Though we hardly had room for it, we ﬁnished with a real ﬁnd: a luscious apple tart that vaulted beyond ordinary with cheddar ice cream and gewurztraminer treacle. Sound like a strange ﬂavour combination? Not at all, said Biddiscombe: “Apple
pie without cheese is like a hug without the squeeze.” Indeed. And it was a perfect way to wrap up a delicious meal. Our dinner for two, which included two glasses of wine and an Americano, added up to $119.28, including HST.

cornstarch mixture and place it in the oil; separate the pieces with a fork and cook, stirring frequently until crispy (check one to make sure it’s cooked through). Remove from oil with a slotted spoon to a paper towellined baking tray to drain. Repeat with the remaining beef in three more batches; set beef aside while making sauce. Drain off all the oil in the wok except about two tablespoons; add the carrots, green onion, ginger and garlic in that order and stirfry brieﬂy over high heat. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar and pepper ﬂakes in a small bowl; stir until sugar dissolves then add mixture to the wok; bring to a boil, then add cornstarch mixture. Stir until sauce has thickened; add beef and stir to coat with sauce. Cook just until beef is hot; serve immediately. Makes four servings.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Place the chopped chocolate in a metal bowl over a saucepan containing one-inch of simmering (not boiling) water; don’t let the bottom of the bowl touch the water. Stir the chocolate until melted; turn off heat but leave the bowl over the simmering water to keep chocolate soft. Spear a piece of ginger with a toothpick or a cocktail fork and twirl it in the melted chocolate until well coated; with another toothpick or a small knife lightly scrape the bottom of the ginger piece to remove drips. Place the coated ginger on the lined baking sheet to set; remove toothpick (hold the ginger with another toothpick to make it easier). Repeat with remaining ginger. Let set before eating or refrigerating. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container between layers of waxed paper or parchment.

Injury dampens fast start
Blues in ﬁrst place but leading scorer goes down
Andy Prest email@example.com
TWO North Shore football teams are heading to provincial quarterﬁnals after scoring opening round playoff wins on the weekend.
Andy Prest firstname.lastname@example.org
THE Capilano Blues women’s basketball team continued their sizzling start to the season with a victory over Columbia Bible College Saturday night but the celebration was muted by an injury to an emerging star.
NORTH SHORE SCORES FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS AA Nov. 9 Windsor - 21 Belmont - 14 Carson Graham - 10 South Delta - 46 AAA Nov. 10 West Van - 31 Rutland - 13
Through the team’s ﬁrst three games — all wins — second year forward Hayley Boulier established herself as one of the Pacwest league’s dominant post players, averaging 15.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. Against CBC on Saturday the six-footone Windsor secondary grad was all over the court, making steals to spark fast breaks, sealing defenders to score easy hoops and dominating the glass. On one play late in the third quarter she showed her athleticism, sprinting ahead of the pack on a fast break, catching a lobbed pass at full speed and twisting to lay it in with a deft touch. In just 18 minutes of play she collected 14 points on six for eight shooting, adding six rebounds and four steals. With 4:57 left in the fourth quarter, however, the Capilano season turned on a play all too familiar to people who watch a lot of women’s basketball. Fighting for a rebound in trafﬁc, Boulier jumped and then crashed to the ground with See Capilano page 46

At the AAA level the West Vancouver Highlanders ran away with a 31-13 win over Kelowna’s Rutland VooDoos Saturday at BC Place while in AA the Windsor Dukes traveled to Victoria’s Goudy Field Friday to score a 21-14 win over Belmont. WestVancouverquarterback Johnny Franklin continued his stellar play, throwing three touchdown passes and rushing for another in the Highlanders’ win. His day also included a 99-yard touchdown run that was called back on a penalty. James Oswald opened the scoring with a six-yard touchdown run before Franklin went to work, throwing touchdown passes to Tommy Lee, Marcus Schwandner and Declan Mcgovern. Franklin ﬁnished with 172 yards rushing and 129 yards passing. The win earned the Highlanders a date with the No. 1-ranked W.J. Mouat Hawks from Abbotsford. The two teams met to open the regular season Sept. 28 with Mouat scoring a 47-33 win. They’ll meet again Friday with a berth in the provincial semiﬁnals on the line. Game time is 8 p.m. Friday at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium. See Playoffs page 46

Boulier before emergency personnel arrived, described what went through his mind when he saw the play unfold just a few metres from the Capilano bench. “Obviously I’m worried about the player, because it kind of sucks,” he said. “Our girls, we do have a tight team so obviously our girls are worried about her. My initial thought is just how is she doing.” From there, however, it was back to the reality of a long season ahead with his current leading scorer and rebounder potentially sidelined. “Injuries are kind of part of the game and other people are going to have to step up if there are injuries,” he said, adding that last year when he was an assistant with the University of British Columbia’s women’s team they lost four players to ACL injuries. Boulier is scheduled to see a sports doctor this week. “It happens, especially in women’s basketball. One thing that we have been talking about is the amount of depth that we have on our team. If Hayley is injured or out for a number of games, I think there are players that can step up and ﬁll in. Obviously it’s a tough loss.” Two familiar North Shore names may be called upon to ﬁll the void but both also come with injury histories. Windsor grad Gabby Koc-Spadero is in her second year with the Blues and back on the ﬂoor after her rookie year was cut short by a season-ending injury. Carson Graham grad Lauren Seabrook played CIS ball with Western in 2010-11 but a back injury she sustained in a car accident sidelined her all of last
season and she’s returned home to get back into the game with the Blues. “We weren’t really expecting her back until January so she’s a bit ahead of schedule,” Sadaghiani said of Seabrook. “We’re easing her in. If Hayley is out, her minutes are probably going to increase quite a bit.” The Blues are the only team without a loss in early-season play and whether they have Boulier or not they’re going to keep doing what they’re doing and hopefully get better at it, said Sadaghiani. “I don’t think we really have to change the game plan, it’s just a matter of coming together as a team and bouncing back and just keep going and doing things that we’ve been working on,” he said, adding that he’s conﬁdent his team has the depth to maintain their early season success. On Saturday all 12 players on the team played at least 10 minutes against CBC. “It’s early so you still haven’t established all the roles and you want everybody to get accustomed to the system and stuff like that,” he said. “Obviously roles are going to get determined as the season goes but right now we’re getting everybody in, getting everybody out, keeping our legs fresh. I think we do have 12 players on the team that can play.” The Blues will be back at it with a pair of home games this weekend. On Friday Camosun will visit the Capilano Sportsplex with the women playing at 6 p.m. followed by the men at 8 p.m. On Saturday Vancouver Island University will visit with game times of 1 p.m. for the women and 3 p.m. for the men.
PLAYOFFS SUN • NOV 18 1:30PM
Meanwhile the Windsor Dukes kept up their late-season surge, winning their ﬁfth straight game en route to the AA quarterﬁnals. Quarterback Ty Marshall completed 12 of 14 passes for 158 yards, including a touchdown strike to Rodney Gilbert. Marshall also did some damage on the ground, rushing nine times for 69 yards and a touchdown while running back Rudy Uhl also had nine carries and picked up 59 yards and a touchdown. Devin Perri led the defence with nine tackles and a sack while Aden Perri picked up eight tackles and a sack. The Dukes will now take on Easter Conference winners Mission secondary Saturday starting at 5:30 p.m. at Thunderbird Stadium. Carson Graham also made a playoff appearance on Friday but fell 46-10 to the powerful South Delta Sun Devils, the No. 1ranked team at the AA level. — with ﬁles from The Province

HARDY, Charlotte Lois Jan 11, 1930 - Nov 10, 2012 It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of beloved wife, mother and grandmother C. Lois Hardy on November 10, 2012 after a brief battle with cancer. Lois was born on a farm near Donavon, Saskatchewan on January 11, 1930 and settled in North Vancouver in 1957 with her husband Jack. They met in Hamilton, Ontario in 1953 while she was training as a dietitian after completing her degree in Home Economics. She worked as a dietitian until giving birth to her son, Jim and daughter, Dana and then dedicated her life to being a full time mom and a partner to Jack in his retirement. Lois and Jack have been blessed with many great friends and Lois loved entertaining them at home with her excellent cooking skills. She enjoyed curling, skiing, golf, tennis and traveling, and later in life took up painting. After Jack’s retirement in 1987, they spent winters in Arizona, escaping the rains of Vancouver. Lois is predeceased by her brothers Willard and Gerald and will be lovingly remembered by her husband Jack, son Jim (Deb), daughter Dana (Mike), granddaughters Ellen and Alexa, brother Arnold, sisters in law Joyce and Loretta and numerous other extended family and friends. There will be a celebration of life in the Jim Graham Lounge at the North Shore Winter Club, 1325 E. Keith Road, North Vancouver on Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Foundation would be welcomed. Online donations can be made at http://tinyurl.com/LoisHardy
