Snowshoer tumbles over three 10-m cliffs
James Weldon firstname.lastname@example.org
A snowshoer was hospitalized with serious injuries Sunday after he fell 30 metres into a gully near Hollyburn Mountain.
The man was walking Cypress Bowl’s Mount Strachan route with three companions early Saturday afternoon when the group reportedly became disoriented by poor weather and a failing GPS unit. They were traversing a steep slope above the gully at about 1:30 p.m. when the man apparently lost his footing and fell down the incline, tumbling over three 10-metre cliffs in a row before coming to rest in the snow, according to rescuers. Unable to get cell reception, a friend had to leave the area to call for help, delaying the launch of the rescue effort until about 3:30 p.m. When a volunteer team reached the area and rappelled down the cliffs, they found the See Rescuers page 3

B.C. to introduce medical ID cards Jane Seyd email@example.com
B.C. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said Tuesday she hopes a new medical ID card being introduced by the province will prevent the kind of fraud that happened recently after a North Vancouver woman had her wallet stolen.
MacDiarmid was speaking after the ministry announced this week it is introducing a new BC Services Card featuring a micro chip, photograph and anti-forgery features to replace the current
New card, mandatory by 2018, to include driver’s licence option
CareCard, at a cost of $150 million. MacDiarmid said she’s concerned the lack of security features on the current card have led to fraud, although the ministry has not been able to quantify that. B.C. has issued about nine million cards, although there are currently only about 4.5 million people living in the province. MacDiarmid said ideally, anyone presenting their CareCard
would also be asked for photo identiﬁcation, but, “I don’t think that always happens in practice.” The new card will combine the medical CareCard and B.C. Drivers Licence for those who want that option. Over the next ﬁve years, B.C. residents between 19 and 74 will have to replace their current CareCard with the new card and renew it every ﬁve years. The new card will be mandatory by 2018 to access health care in the province. The government hopes to eventually tie in the card to accessing other services online. See Privacy page 3

Spaceman vies for leadership Former astronaut Marc Garneau hopes Liberals use his experience
James Weldon firstname.lastname@example.org
From page 1
IF you ask Marc Garneau, there are few things that make you think globally quite like leaving Earth. “We share the whole planet,” said the famed former astronaut, speaking to the North Shore News after an event at the Pemberton Station Pub Monday. “We share the atmosphere; we share the oceans. We have a collective responsibility to take care of them. . . . You think about these things when you’re up there looking down.” Garneau, who entered the race for leadership of the federal Liberal party in November, was on the North Shore this week to gather Western support for his campaign. Facing stiff competition from party darling Justin Trudeau, the 63-year-old made the case that his professional background, including his time as an astronaut and his years as head of the Canadian Space Agency, have made him uniquely qualiﬁed for the post. “I think Canadians are looking for a strong leader, someone who doesn’t get rattled easily, someone who is reassuring when we face a crisis,” said Garneau. “I think everything I’ve done in my life has led me to this moment.” Garneau, an electrical engineer and former naval ofﬁcer, literally rocketed to fame in 1984 when he became the ﬁrst Canadian to take part in a NASA shuttle mission. He returned to space in 1996 and again in 2000, logging more than 600 hours in orbit, and eventually went on to become president of the CSA. Garneau quit that post in 2005 to run for ofﬁce, ﬁnally getting elected as MP for Westmount-Ville-Marie in Quebec in 2008. Garneau believes that background, particularly his time heading up the country’s $300-million space program, has equipped him to resuscitate his ailing party. “We’ve come upon hard times, and I want to be the person who will help to turn it around,” he said. “What we really need to do is reconnect with Canadians.” If Garneau wins the leadership and the Liberals return to power, his top priority will be employment, he said. “It’s ultimately related to making sure as many Canadians as possible have jobs — secure jobs, stable jobs, long-term jobs that lead to a retirement that’s secure.” Garneau rattled off a list of speciﬁc actions he would take, including the creation of tax credits aimed at boosting investment in startups, employee skills upgrading and youth employment, and the extension of the student loan program to new immigrants in a bid to increase their employability. He pegged the price tag for those initiatives at about $800 million, but argued the expense would be worth it. “I will take it from somewhere else (in the budget) unless we’re in surplus, because those to me are priorities,” said Garneau. “I will apply them not just for one year; I will apply them for the amount of time it takes for us to get ourselves on a competitive footing.” But while Garneau insists his focus is on politics now, the See Spatial page 5
Privacy issues concern some From page 1
“Most people understand why we’re doing this and are quite supportive,” said MacDiarmid. Privacy is still protected under the new card, MacDiarmid said, because no personal records will be physically stored on the card. But privacy watchdogs aren’t so sure. Calling the program Government 2.0, Vince Gogolek, executive director of the B.C. Information and Privacy Association, questioned why the new cards are needed. “We’re concerned about government’s plan to collect more information on citizens,” said Gogolek, adding the system could potentially create a goldmine for hackers. “If you can crack this thing, they’re going to get everything about us,” he said. Gogolek said his group has been trying to ﬁnd out more about the program for the past two years and has been stonewalled by the province. Elizabeth Denham, the information and privacy commissioner for B.C., issued a statement saying her ofﬁce was still reviewing security issues associated with the new card. Gogolek said the province should have waited until that was complete before going ahead with the cards. “But they are just rocketing on ahead,” he said. Most B.C. residents will get their new B.C. Service Cards when they renew their driver’s licences. Children, people who don’t drive or who don’t wish to link their driver’s licence to their medical ID can still enroll to get their card in places where driver’s licences are issued.
Rescuers follow trail of blood

MARC Garneau, former astronaut, says his life has prepared him for the leadership of the federal Liberal party.
man had moved from the spot where he fell, complicating the problem. “He had staggered about 800 feet. . . . We were following a trail of blood. We found an abandoned snowshoe, a pair of goggles; he was an army in retreat,” said North Shore Rescue team leader Tim Jones. “We found him sitting in this gully, soaking wet.” The victim had suffered serious head injuries in the mishap and was showing signs of hypothermia, said Jones. He was also in severe pain. They treated some of the man’s injuries, but with darkness and bad weather preventing a helicopter rescue, he had to be hauled out by hand. All the available members of NSR were called in to help in the effort, as well as Lions Bay Search and Rescue, Cypress Mountain staff, West Vancouver police and others. It took close to six hours to drag the man’s stretcher up a steep and snowy 600metre slope to a waiting snowmobile. He was ﬁnally transported to hospital at about 3 a.m. on Sunday morning. “It was a long, long, long night,” said Jones. The result could have been worse, however, he noted. “We’ve done two fatalities directly below where he fell.”
Real Housewives gets a makeover Show’s producers billing newest North Shore ‘wife’ as a sex-addict Jeremy Shepherd email@example.com
LIKE tabby cats returning to an alley to rumble over the last bowl of milk, the The Real Housewives of Vancouver are back for a second season premiering Feb. 5. Amid the Louis Vuitton, vitriol, Botox and backstabbing is new cast member Amanda Hansen. For trash television aﬁcionados hoping for less alcohol and more sex in the second instalment of Slice TV’s top-rated show, the sober North Shore resident may be just what your remote controls have been surﬁng for. Hansen is a recovering alcoholic and a self-confessed sex addict, according to a release from the show. A mother of three, Hansen lives the sort of privileged lifestyle where Coach is something you carry and not an airplane seating designation. The short-tempered cast member also has three children and a “gorgeous” long-distance boyfriend named Kyle, according to the release. The ﬁrst season featured hurt feelings and hard drinking, but the second season may be different according to housewife Ronnie Negus. “I’d kind of try and go in and clean up the mess that was created in the ﬁrst season,” she said in an interview with Look magazine last fall when discussing the possibility of going in for one more close-up. At least one of the housewives is identiﬁed as a toxic backstabber in a commercial for the upcoming season. Hansen, a recent divorcee, has an honest and outspoken nature, according to the release. “She believes that honesty is always the best policy. As a result, Amanda is quick to call people out on their lies and bad behavior — a trait which earns her a lot of respect . . . and
NORTH Shore resident Amanda Hansen is one of three new additions to The Real Housewives of Vancouver. enemies!” the release shouts. Hansen’s Twitter feed features of a photo of her puppy, which she recently dyed pink, as well as a pistol with a pink, Hello Kitty grip. Negus, Mary Zilba, and former West Vancouver resident Jody Claman are all back for splendour and scandal this spring. Negus and Claman have each discussed the nature of reality in the reality TV show. “It is highly edited. So edited that for me it’s a brand new show,” Negus said. “Those tears are not fake. That laughter is not fake. You can’t create that drama,” Claman said. The Real Housewives franchise was launched in 2006. Since beginning in Orange County, the show has branched out to include similarly decadent packs of wealthy women in several U.S. cities.

Thief uses stolen CareCard
North Van woman ﬁnds 19 prescriptions ﬁlled in her name Susan Lazaruk The Province
A North Vancouver woman is shocked by how easy it was for an identity thief to use her B.C. CareCard to rack up almost two dozen prescriptions for hundreds of sleeping pills under her name. Sharla Keizer had her wallet stolen from a pub while attending a high-school reunion last summer and the thief took not only her cash, gift cards and a credit card, but also her CareCard. “At the time I thought it was rather odd,” said Keizer.
She reported the card stolen online to Health Insurance B.C. But ﬁve months later when picking up a prescription for low-dose sleeping pills, her ﬁrst such request, Keizer was puzzled when the pharmacist suggested she wouldn’t need any explanation about the sleeping pills since “you know how this works.” Her prescription record listed 19 different prescriptions ﬁlled since her card was stolen. The prescriptions were for as many as 120 pills with a dosage of 7.5 milligrams. Keizer’s prescription was for 10 pills at a 0.5-mg dosage. “I was shocked she was able to get so many prescriptions ﬁlled,” said Keizer. “And that’s
a really . . . high dosage. It should have been an easy red ﬂag.” When she contacted Health Insurance B.C., Keizer was told her card was ﬂagged, ensuring pharmacists ask for identiﬁcation. “That clearly was never done,” said Keizer, who was never asked for ID when she ﬁlled out her prescription. She wouldn’t have known about the misuse of her card if not for the pharmacist’s casual remark. B.C. Health Ministry spokesman Ryan Jabs said safeguards are in place with the current cards to prevent fraud, including a password requirement. But Keizer said she wasn’t told about the password feature and her pharmacist wasn’t aware of it. “Why doesn’t everyone have a password (to use the CareCard) and then there
wouldn’t be all this fraud,” she said. “This fraud could have been stopped.” Jabs said he couldn’t provide any data about the extent of fraudulent use of CareCards. He said the new B.C. Services Card that will eventually replace CareCards will be more secure. Keizer said she agrees the new cards would be more fraud-resistant with a photo, but worried that thieves could continue to use the old CareCards for the ﬁve years it will take to switch everyone over to the new services card. And she’s also worried she won’t be able to clear her prescription history. “It’s permanently on my record,” she said. “I’m worried that I look like a pill-popper.”

VIEWPOINT Published by North Shore News a division of LMP Publication Limited Partnership, 100-126 East 15th Street, North Vancouver, B.C. V7L 2P9. Doug Foot, publisher. Canadian publications mail sales product agreement No. 40010186.
Empty bandwagon W
HEN news broke early Sunday morning that a tentative agreement had been reached between the millionaire-club players’ association and the billionaire-club National Hockey League owners, local fan reaction was curiously muted. Of course there was not much to cheer about on the ice while the pros stayed off it for more than three months. The Vancouver Giants have been uncharacteristically bad this season and Team Canada was hugely disappointing at the World Juniors over the holidays. The shortened season will see the Canucks play only teams from their own conference. The decision makes business sense, but once again the fans are the losers. No Montreal. No Leafs and Brian Burke to jeer. No Sidney Crosby. Not even a sighting of the one who got away: Cody Hodgson.
Against that backdrop why would diehard Canucks fans again invest their emotions in a team that has yet to win it all? It’s difﬁcult for non-sports lovers to comprehend how deﬂating the Canucks exit from the ﬁrst round of the playoffs was to loyal fans last year. The team was supposedly deeper and tougher than the one that lost to Boston the previous year. In the end it was neither. That slough of despond might have been replaced with optimism last summer had a major trade taken place with the movement of Roberto Luongo. But we’re still waiting on that. Now, Canucks ownership need to do more than paint a “thank you,” on the ice — especially while charging full price to watch what should be pre-season games. Free seats or winning the Stanley Cup are obvious remedies.
Don’t put L. Valley in shadow
Dear Editor: I have looked at the development that is beingproposedfortheLynnValleyShopping Centre and I would like to point out that the artist renditions do not represent the reality of living with highrises in Lynn Valley. Consider the dramatic effects of the shadow cast by the 288 foot/24-storey tower (proposed two storeys retail with 22 residential storeys above): ■ The shadow cast at the winter solstice is a minimum of 930 feet at noon. At 9 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. on that date, the shadow for a 288 foot building is 2,880 feet long (over a half a mile in length). ■ On the equinoxes (March 21 and Sept. 21) the shadow would be 330 feet at noon, and 610 feet at 9 a.m. and 3:45 p.m.
The length of the shadow in late December at noon is three times the height of the building, and longer at other times of the day. This is the shadow of one tower. The parking area of the mall, businesses and residences across the street will pay a price of having less direct sunlight. Shadows strongly affect the micro climate: it will feel noticeably colder in the shadowed area. Many tall buildings will also change wind ﬂow in the mall area. In some cases buildings will intensify the wind. This is what happens in cities: some corners become windier. Like many longtime residents, I wish to retire here. It is vital that we continue to grow, renew and redevelop. The village/ library square is a good example of a
welcome addition. I love to walk through the square and see the young families with their children. I do not wish to retire here if Lynn Valley becomes indistinguishable from any other development. I do not want to live in shadows. A community where the buildings are taller than the trees is not the community that I love. It is interchangeable with any other community and has lost what is unique and special. The issue is clear and the message is simple: Please, revitalize but no highrises in Lynn Valley Centre. Sign a petition, speak up, attend a council meeting — do what you can to let the district council know what this community wants. Denyse Holme, North Vancouver
Road rager sentence totally out of proportion Dear Editor: Once again I am astounded at the wrist slapping sentences that continue to be handed down in our courts (Road Rage Bat Wielder Avoids Jail, North Shore News, Jan. 2). An enraged bully beats a fellow human being almost senseless with a metal baseball bat and could have easily killed him and gets only a six month conditional sentence to be served at home (can’t leave the house from 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.), ordered to take a safe driving course and one year’s probation.
The judge says “we have a problem in our society with what they call road rage,” he also goes on to say attacking with a bat “was totally out of proportion with the circumstances the attacker faced.” Well, judge, we have a problem in our society all right. I think such an insigniﬁcant sentence and its lack of deterrent handed down by the courts for the actions by this attacker is a “major contributor to problems in our society” and “totally out of proportion with the degree of injuries the victim continues to suffer.” Don Weber, West Vancouver
SeaBus contract questioned
Dear Editor: It was no surprise to me that TransLink would award the new SeaBus contract to an offshore shipyard, they always do the wrong thing. I have a few questions: Does the winning bid take into consideration the delivery cost of transporting it and voyage insurance from the Singapore shipyard (cost from North Vancouver’s Allied Shipbuilders: nil) not to mention the costs for tests, trials, etc. in Singapore? No doubt TransLink’s sisters, cousins and aunts will enjoy the junket to Singapore — apologies to HMS Pinafore. After taxes and federal import duty, where is the two million savings? Does TransLink have permission to lend Canadian technology, drawings, etc. to a foreign shipyard? What happened to Canadian content — we always had to prove that when bidding on a ship, to calculate tax duties. Have they allowed for the import taxes and for future spare parts, etc.? As we all know the labour cost alone, approximately 15 million, would have raised approximately three million in income taxes, employment insurance, medical premiums which would have gone to the federal and provincial coffers. David Gavine, North Vancouver
Parking police get free parking
Dear Editor: I think I have a solution for the parking problems for the Lions Gate Hospital employees. They should pay the same as our city staff. Oh, that’s right their parking is free. Silly me! Duncan Dickinson North Vancouver

Show up the B.C. Liberals at your own risk
“. . . [many] individuals disclosing information are employed by the organization they want us to look into. We point out that while our audit process offers whistleblowers anonymity it does not prevent them facing potential reprisals should those individuals be identiﬁed inside their organization. We see the need to protect whistleblowers …” B.C. Auditor General, Dec. 6, 2012
ONE month to the day after Auditor General John Doyle released his report, the other shoe dropped when his job was advertised in Saturday newspapers. It was dropped by the ﬁve-person legislative committee that decides if Doyle will be offered a continuance of his sixyear contract. Given the unannounced removal of the carpet from beneath the auditor general’s feet, it’s reasonable to ask if the Liberals have already decided who they want to replace the burr under their saddles that was Doyle. Ironically, two of the three B.C. Liberals who form the majority on the committee
Elizabeth James will not be seeking reelection themselves come May 14. Doyle’s track record is impressive. He took up his appointment in B.C. on Oct. 29, 2007. Before that, as deputy auditor general of Western Australia, he audited 210 agencies and conducted special investigations and performance audits across the WA public sector. Some British Columbians may not know that while the Campbell-Clark governments pretty much did as they pleased, under Doyle’s leadership 115 staffers in his ofﬁce work tirelessly on our behalf, determined to hold government accountable and to protect our public interests. Yet now the Liberals appear to be pursuing the
retaliatory path for which they’ve become infamous — they are going after an eminently-qualiﬁed man because he has done his job. This development is made all the worse because, despite his frequent — and justiﬁable — differences of opinion with the current government’s accounting practices, Doyle has been generous and sincere in making note of the co-operation he receives from ministry staffs. He has also pointed out that “reservations” — professional terminology for accounting ﬂaws — have occurred in 13 of the past 17 years; so that doesn’t let the NDP off the hook. Doyles’s recommendation that legislation be drafted to protect staffers who approach him with information
about what they believe to be wrongdoing in their workplace, was tantamount to issuing an open invitation to cross-government whistleblowers. Politicians wouldn’t like that; so following as it did more than one critical report, that statement may have been the ﬁnal straw. Doyle often emphasizes that he works strictly according to the terms and conditions of the Auditor General Act. So when obdurate politicians refuse to release the appropriate documents to facilitate his work, he has only three options: capitulate and betray his oath of ofﬁce and the people of the province; encourage whistleblowers to risk their jobs by sneaking the
information into his ofﬁce, or take the government to court. To the shame of this government, Doyle was driven to option three when the Liberals refused him access to information about the $6 million in legal fees they paid out to Basi-Virk lawyers in the BC Rail case.
It is bad enough when, in response to queries under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, you and I receive little but blacked out pages. But it’s quite another thing when a professional, required-tobe-independent provincial

NORTH Vancouver RCMP are hoping the public can help to identify two suspects in an assault that sent a man to hospital for corrective surgery.
Can you ID beating suspects? POLICE are circulating images of two North Vancouver bus riders they say attacked a fellow passenger last fall for his sweater.

201 LONSDALE AVE., NORTH VANCOUVER (Corner of Lonsdale & 2nd) 604-770-0600 • www.heritagemattress.com
The 25-year-old victim was on his way home from downtown at about 3:30 a.m. Oct. 24, 2012, when the assault took place. As the man got off a bus near East Fifth Street and Lonsdale Avenue, the two strangers allegedly followed him off and jumped him without provocation. They beat the man, according to investigators, fractured his jaw and took off with his sweater. The victim was taken to hospital where he had to undergo corrective surgery.
“The assault was very aggressive,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, a spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP, in a release. Both suspects are Caucasian men in their mid-20s, according to police. One is lean and athletic, six feet three inches tall with brown hair, brown facial hair, dark eyes and olive skin, they said. The other is described as thin, approximately six foot one with blond hair and white 00-gauge plug earrings. Anyone who recognizes the men or who has other information about the incident is asked to contact the North Vancouver detachment at 604-985-1311. — James Weldon

WV groups cautiously OK old-growth plan Municipality improves mapping, consultation
Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
TWO of the North Shore’s most active environmental stewardship groups are praising the District of West Vancouver for making good on its promise to prevent another accidental cutting of old growth trees in the district.
But the Old Growth Conservancy Society and West Vancouver Streamkeeper Society say they have to keep the district’s feet to the ﬁre since numerous fail-safes didn’t work when district contractors mistakenly cut down a stand of old growth trees — some of them upwards of 700 years old — on the steep banks of Black Creek for a water infrastructure project in 2011. Since the incident came to light and caused a public drubbing for West Vancouver staff and council in June, council has pledged to beef up its consultation with stewardship groups, update its in-house digital mapping system to include all known stands of old growth trees and set a new interdepartment communication policy to make sure engineering and parks services are well aware of any work going on that might put old growth trees or streams at risk. The district has also hired a staff member with a master’s degree in forestry and posted a job opening for an environmental manager. Both posts were vacant at the time of the cutting, which critics blamed for the mistake. All of the improvements were on a list of recommendations put forward by the two community groups after the incident. “All ﬁve have either been adopted or in the process of being adopted, which we as
stewardships groups are very much in support of and are thankful for,” said Hugh Hamilton, president of OGCS. “(But) we know we’ve got to keep pressure on them. You know as well as I do that things will just not get done. We want to make sure they do understand that we care and they do understand that we’re going to keep on to this.” Work crews were installing a road to do upgrades to the Black Creek Diversion Project, a critical source of about half of the district’s drinking water, when they cut down 62 trees, roughly 12 of which were more than 700 years old in November 2011. Trying to get the job done before winter weather set in, the district used its own maps, which were out of date. “But they didn’t bother to check with people,” Hamilton said. “People who would have been there before. People who would have known this was an old growth forest.” The most aggravating factor was that the water diversion project itself had been installed 10 years earlier without having to fell old growth, said John Barker, Streamkeeper coordinator, and that the upgrades could have been done the same way, had anyone dug up the old construction plans. “If they had only followed the pattern of what they did in 2001 when the pipe ﬁrst went in, we’d be home free. We wouldn’t have this problem,” he said. The loss of old growth trees was devastating for environmentalists on the North Shore and around the Lower Mainland, and many still become emotional when the subject comes up, Barker said. On an environmental level, they are hugely important to the biodiversity of their area, they have hundreds of years of carbon sequestered in them and they can be anchors for slope stability. But there’s something a little more

Basi-Virk obstructions create more questions
From page 7
auditor is treated likewise. Why, in addition to the existing $6-million bill, should government be allowed to rack up still more millions in legal costs to obstruct that diligent watchdog? The whole grubby picture, of course, begs the question: What are they hiding? Is it possible that the legal bills were only, say, $4 million and that the remainder was spent on something else? Or is it possible that the legal bills totalled more than $6 million and that the Basi-Virk team — or someone else — was paid an additional amount from another account? Do the Liberals not realize that withholding the documents Doyle requested only encourages him — and us — to demand the answers to even more questions? B.C. is on the downhill run to a provincial election on May 14, but we cannot afford to let this issue slide in the hope that the NDP can “make it all go away” if they win the election.
The deadline for submission of applications for the position of auditorgeneral is Jan. 25, but my suspicion is the position would not have been advertised unless the Liberals already knew who they want to see in the job. Although Doyle’s tenure is contracted until September/October, should the Liberals sign a legal contract with another individual before they exit the stage, any hope we may have of keeping him around would be slim indeed. And if Doyle goes down in the dust, can we expect Prime Minister Harper to send his own nemesis at the federal level, parliamentary budget ofﬁcer Kevin Page, down the same chute? We should not sit idly by, waiting to see how things play out. My suggestion is that we deluge the legislative committee with our own letters of application: write the applicant’s name as “John Doyle/on behalf of. . . .” ﬁll in our own names, and then stamp the page APPROVED BY THE PEOPLE OF B.C. firstname.lastname@example.org
Timber cash goes to WV foundation From page 9 intangible about their value, like an heirloom passed down for many generations or a rare cultural artifact. “If I said to you there are only 12 trees in the Lower Mainland that are 700 years old still standing in a forest environment, your ears might perk up. And how many of those did they wipe out? They took two of them out,” Barker said. “People have said this might be one of the
few remaining stands of 700 year old Douglas ﬁr trees in the Lower Mainland and they just wiped it out.” The trees also happen to be worth thousands of dollars each. As an act of contrition, the district offered to donate the roughly $13,000 from timber sales to OGCS and WVSS, which the groups have requested be passed on to the West Vancouver Community Foundation. From there, it can be granted out to groups or individuals wanting to carry out environmental improvement projects.

Winter houseplant how-to Wild About Birds Al Grass
Todd Major THE short days of January can be hard for Canadians to stand and even harder for houseplants to tolerate. Several of our readers have emailed me over the past few weeks asking for advice on how to overwinter tender plants and tropical indoor plants during winter. My friend Mark grows as he puts it “Beautiful Agave, one of my favourite plants.” Agave are grown indoors as houseplants and outdoors in summer as a tender plant. They are meant to be brought indoors during winter but can be difﬁcult to overwinter indoors. There are many tender plants we grow in our gardens such as geraniums, citrus trees, cannas and many others. Tender plants are usually longlived perennials, shrubs, vines or trees that are not native to our climate, cannot survive winter freezing and must be brought indoors in October or November to overwinter. Some plants grown outdoors in summer such as antirrhinum — commonly known as snapdragons (for NEWS photo Mike Wakeﬁeld the nice lady who mailed me a handwritten letter) — AGAVES overwinter indoors near a basement window with southern exposure. marigolds, impatiens, begonias over-fertilization. and other plants used in pots and bedding schemes are called Plants grown indoors during the winter need bright light — as “annuals” because they grow, ﬂower, set seed and die within one bright as possible and preferably direct sunlight to prevent plants year. Annuals cannot be overwintered because they only live one from stretching, a condition called etiolation. Energy efﬁcient year and they should be composted at the end of the summer. ﬂuorescent light bulbs or incandescent bulbs that are used to light During the winter, we all turn up the heat and the sunlight our homes do not provide the range of wavelengths needed to help levels drop, which provides the perfect conditions to make tender plants grow properly. plants and indoor tropical plants suffer, drop leaves, grow spindly and sometimes die. Those environmental conditions are usually made worse by peat-based soils, small pot sizes, over-watering and See Indoor page 14
Waterfowl plumage captivates IT has often been said that for nature seekers, each month, each week and each day has its own special rewards — and winter is no exception. For birders, winter is a very special season on the North Shore — there’s always plenty awaiting discovering no matter the weather. By January, wintering birds have settled in for the winter. It’s a fact that the best time to enjoy of wonderful diversity of waterfowl is winter — on a good day you could ﬁnd 20 or more species. In shallow water and tidal (mud) ﬂats look for puddle ducks like the mallard, Northern pintail, greenwinged teal, American wigeon, and rarities like the Eurasian wigeon. Deeper waters like Burrard Inlet’s are where you’ll see diving ducks like scoters (three species), goldeneyes (two species), greater scaup and the red-breasted merganser. Pond habitats such as at Ambleside and Maplewood Conservation Area are where you’ll see two of the most colourful ducks — the hooded merganser and wood duck. Two uncommon waterfowl species of local marine habitats are the harlequin duck (rocky shores) and the long-tailed See Winter page 15

Indoor plants need winter rest
From page 13
Lighting alone will not cure all that ails our plants in winter. Plants need light but temperature control is interrelated with light levels. High temperatures and low light will cause stretching and leaf drop. High temperatures and high light levels will provide good conditions for plant growth but as a general rule we do not want our tender plants or tropical indoor plants to grow rapidly during winter because it is out of sync with our climate. Indoor plants also need a rest period during winter — a break of sorts, like mild dormancy where they maintain growth but do not put on much new growth. The humidity level of the air is another key factor that must be managed to successfully grow plants indoors. Generally, most homes have forced air heating systems, some have radiant heating but both systems generally make the humidity levels of indoor air
low or dry. Most plants prefer some measure of humidity in the atmosphere to help keep their leaves ﬂush with moisture, except desert plants like cactus which prefer low humidity. Since our homes during winter have warm temperatures, low humidity and low light levels or unnatural types of lighting, plants must exist in environmental conditions that are generally opposite to what they need to grow happily. There are several ways to keep tender plants and indoor tropical plants growing healthy during winter. Generally, plants grown indoors during winter like cool temperatures, some humidity, some air ﬂow to prevent disease buildup, no fertilizer, restricted watering and bright light. In other words, cool, bright, semi-humid and in a resting phase. To help your plants survive winter indoors try the following techniques. Increase the light levels by moving plants to south or west facing windows. Provide supplemental light for plants in the
form of plant grow lights or full spectrum ﬂuorescent lights to help prevent stretching. Choose plants that can tolerate the speciﬁc light levels found in your home. Provide supplemental humidity by misting plant leaves occasionally. Or place watering trays ﬁlled with colourful gravel and water underneath your plants to help raise the humidity level. Control the temperature by moving plants away from direct heat sources like heat vents. Place plants in cooler rooms or near cool windows. Reduce or eliminate all fertilization to allow plants to rest. Fertilizing during winter will force soft weak growth that will stretch or die. Water only as needed and allow a short dry period between each watering which will force plants to rest. It takes some practice to manage your plants through the long winter but growing houseplants will improve the quality of indoor air and help lift your spirits during winter.

SHORT-EARED owls like this one photographed at Boundary Bay are occasionally seen at Maplewood.
Winter brings raptor sightings From page 13 duck (deeper waters). Ducks are in their best plumages in winter — after all, for some, it’s courtship time — don’t be surprised to see them mating even in a snowstorm. A variety of other water birds winter locally, including the common loon, horned grebe and cormorants. Puddle ducks (those who tip their bodies up to feed) are also found in good numbers on the tidal ﬂats like at Maplewood Conservation Area. Here they can ﬁnd a variety of foods like sea lettuce (seaweed), worms, molluscs and crustaceans (small crabs). Tidal ﬂats are not just mud, but in fact rich habitats for all kinds of wildlife like shorebirds, waterfowl, gulls and raptors — even deer patrol them. Waves of migrating shorebirds passed through our area in the autumn, but a few species winter here including the greater yellowlegs, and sanderling. And, on the recent Christmas Bird Count (2012), a spotted sandpiper was seen at Maplewood, a rare winter occurrence. Gulls are always a big identiﬁcation challenge. Some, like the mew, ring-billed and glaucouswinged are easy, but hybrids can be confusing. Identifying gulls is all about details like bill size, leg and back (mantle) and wing-tips. It always pays to watch for rarities like the December sighting of a little gull (Hydrocoloeus minutus) on the North Shore. This European species is described in the ﬁeld guide Birds of North America (St. Martin’s Press) as a rare straggler to North America; it is rarely seen in B.C. Winter is also a prime time to enjoy raptors.
December sightings include merlin (a small falcon), peregrine falcon, Cooper’s hawk, sharpshinned hawk, northern goshawk, and of course of the locally common bald eagle and red-tailed hawk. Watch for raptors perched on pilings, dolphins and power pylons. Owls are getting ready for courtship, so it’s not unusual to hear them hooting, screaming and barking in mid-winter. “Small birds” have been active with large numbers of pine siskins invading our area. Red crossbills and white-winged crossbills, evening grosbeaks and common redpolls have also been reported from various locations on the North Shore. Snowshoers and cross-country skiers should watch for crossbills, redpolls and the pine grosbeak along mountain trails. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to ﬁnd a ﬂock of angry chickadees and kinglets scolding a Northern pygmy owl. It has been a remarkable winter for Anna’s hummingbirds with many sightings on the North Shore. Don’t be surprised to see hummingbird courting — Anna’s nest in winter. I was shown an Anna’s sitting on her nest in late February — who could have imagined? Enjoy our winter’s wonderful diversity of birds — bundle up and keep safe.

Library a rough-cut gem in an urban jewel box
I travelled to Seattle over the holidays and had the pleasure of visiting the wildly contemporary Seattle Central Library designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas.
Good architecture successfully meets the requirements of program through a creative formation of space in response to form and use. Great architecture, as this building exempliﬁes, transforms this dynamic into poetry. When I ask people to explain what they remember most about a building, they generally don’t recall the speciﬁc characteristics of the structure but instead remember how the building made them feel and why. When we move through a building we experience its personality and come away with a distinct perception of place. It’s like meeting someone for the ﬁrst time, we have a superﬁcial recollection that’s easy to convey but we often come away with a less coherent gut feeling as well. The perception of architectural character goes far beyond the obvious discernible features of structure and material and begins to touch on the more nebulous concept of the poetics of place.
Building by Design
For individuals untrained in architecture this may seem like an ethereal concept but this essence of character is generally the deﬁning feature of any great building. The Seattle Central Library is profoundly different than any other building in its context with its multi-faceted structure of glass and steel resembling a roughly cut gem in an urban jewelry box of more somber orthogonal-cut stones. The angular form of the exterior composition is almost entirely covered in a diagonal grid of metal and glass that, at ﬁrst glance, seems incongruent to its internal workings but these seemingly random pushes and pulls have their function. Joshua Ramus, the partner in charge of the project, states that, “although the library is sculptural, it is not in any way
an attempt to make a form. The library’s appearance comes from pushing boxes around to stay within the height and setback restrictions and zoning codes.” Upon entering the library through its main entry off Fifth Avenue, visitors ﬁnds themselves in a large unprogrammed public space that welcomes lounging, relaxing and free wireless computer use. This is a public building that truly encourages public use. Rem Koolhaas has taken the architectural program and acted upon it dynamically, taking standard elements and reinventing them in an unorthodox way. The Mixing Chamber, the space where librarians meet the public, is centralized, open and expansive and becomes the heart of the building. Koolhaas has designed the building to have 75 per cent of its collection accessible through a continuous, square ramp that ascends four levels in height, giving easy access to the collection while creating a dynamic circulation system that ties the building together. The Books Spiral is a functional and pragmatic solution that becomes a graceful architectural expression. The architect has introduced a sense of whimsy to the composition as well. Stairs and

Development Cost Charges (DCCs) are fees collected on new developments to pay for the expansion and upgrading of transportation, waterworks, sanitary sewers, drainage, and parks infrastructure to meet the growth needs of the community. The District of North Vancouver is updating its Development Cost Charge (DCC) program and would like interested residents, property owners, and stakeholders to review the proposed changes before the required bylaw is presented to Council for consideration. A public information meeting will be held as follows: Tuesday, January 15, 2013 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. – Presentation at 7:30 p.m. Municipal Hall, Committee Room 355 West Queens Road Information boards will be available in the lobby, and participants will have the opportunity to provide written comments. Municipal staff and the District’s engineering consultants will be in attendance at this meeting to receive comments and input from the public.

THE award-winning architecture of Seattle’s Central Library draws visitors. escalators have been painted in a luminous yellow, almost overwhelming in its colour, but very clear in its function. A singular red grand stair, sinuous and organic in form, drops into the bowels of the building where arterial red corridors, rounded in section, lead to functional meeting spaces
below. Carpets depict scenes of vegetation that are a simple tapestry to the pedestrian user but are intense landscapes to viewers from above. The Central Library in Seattle is a spectacular example of a successful modern building that needs to be fully experienced to be adequately
understood. Next time you’re in Seattle I encourage you to take an hour and walk through this fascinating building and hopefully get a sense of that special something that makes a unique piece of architecture transcend from the prosaic to the inspired. firstname.lastname@example.org

Spare the rod, raise the child
Parenting Today Kathy Lynn
HITTING kids just isn’t a good way to teach them how to behave.
In 1978, when I ﬁrst started my speaking business, the idea that disciplinary tactics should not include physical punishment was almost revolutionary. But I felt that it was neither a necessary nor an effective way to discipline children. But today, increasingly we know and believe that we do not need to physically hurt children in order for them to learn right from wrong. Today’s parents have a host of skills and resources to help them raise children without using violence. The idea of hitting kids reﬂects an attitude toward children that no longer exists. The research is in. It shows that the risks of physical and psychological harm
are deﬁnite. We now accept that children are not chattels; they are human beings who possess all of the basic human rights including freedom from physical harm. But, there are still questions that I hear about the topic. So, let’s address them. There are many who express the belief that spanking is not hitting. All I can answer to that is that any time an open hand moves with speed toward a body part, that is a slap or a whack. The fact that the body part is the bottom of a child is irrelevant. Hitting is hitting no matter what other names we give it, and if we believe that violence is never an answer, we won’t hit our children. What about the criminalization of well-meaning parents who hit a child? Section 43 of the criminal code states that “every schoolteacher, parent or person standing in the place of a parent is justiﬁed in using force by way of correction toward a pupil or child, as the case may be, who is under his care, if the force does not exceed what is reasonable under the circumstances.” In my view this section is unnecessary to our criminal law because it exists simply to justify the physical punishment of children. For some parents it offers permission to hit kids. Although banning spanking
would mean that hitting children would fall in the same category as hitting adults and would therefore be an offence under the criminal code, it would rarely be prosecuted. Prosecution is only appropriate where it is in the public interest. Prosecutors have that discretion in deciding whether an offence should be prosecuted. In the case of the spanking of children, guidelines could require parenting education, parent support and guidance or a simple reminder that hitting children isn’t permitted in Canada. Think about a situation in which a couple is in a major argument and one slaps the other. It’s not particularly serious and is a result of the heat of the moment. There is likely not going to be a charge of assault placed on the perpetrator. What about using force to keep a child from harm? Would it be illegal to grab a toddler who is about to run onto the road? How about wrangling a preschooler into a car seat? Or taking the hand of a child to remove them from a classroom when they are disruptive? Consent to reasonable force can be either express or implied. It is express when, for example, written consent is given for a medical operation. It is implied when the person against whom
Adult Sport Conditioning Programs
Unleash The Athlete Within
the force is used would have consented, if competent to do so. The common law has long recognized that parents and teachers may have to use reasonable force to remove a child from harm, put an unwilling child to bed, in a car seat, or on a school bus. These are common, childcaring actions for which the law implies consent on the part of the child. They are entirely different from hitting a child for correction and do not constitute an assault. Over the years, the courts have adjusted the law to reduce the ways in which parents can hit their children. They can no longer use switches, paddles or belts, but only hit with an open hand. You can no longer hit a child on his head. And children under the age of two or over 12 are not to be hit. Why won’t Canada join the more than 30 countries that have in one way or another stated that their children will not be physically harmed in the name of child discipline? Our children deserve the best we can offer. Positive discipline which never includes causing them physical pain but does teach them right from wrong will prepare them to become capable adults. ••• There is more information on physical punishment and the research at repeal43. org and at cheo.on.ca/en/ physicalpunishment.

Blues take two from VIU Cap men climbing up standings Andy Prest email@example.com
THE Capilano University men’s volleyball team brought out the brooms for an impressive sweep on the weekend, winning two straight matches against the fourth-ranked college team in the country.

Reinhart suspension caps tough World Jr. for West Van d-men Andy Prest firstname.lastname@example.org
The Blues scored backto-back 3-2 home wins over Vancouver Island University Friday and Saturday, carrying on a four-game win streak that has vaulted them into a tie for third place in Pacwest play with an 8-6 record. The wins evened out the season series between the two teams as VIU, currently sitting second in the Pacwest with an 11-5 record, had swept Capilano at home when the two teams played in November. You’d think, given the importance of wins, Capilano head coach Nathan Bennett would be gushing about his team. You’d be wrong or, at best, maybe only half right. “The results are great but there is still a lot of work to be done,” said Bennett following the weekend set. “I think we made some errors and we can deﬁnitely play better.” Bennett pointed out that NEWS photos Paul McGrath on both nights the Blues earned 2-1 set leads but on SPENCER Kyte, photo above, eyes up a pass while libero Dan Caverly, below, each occasion they failed to seal shows his defensive skill in Capilano University’s win over VIU on Saturday.

When you look at the standings going into provincials, being top-three is very helpful in our league.” With six weeks of play left before the provincial championships, playoff seeding is already taking shape. The Blues are hoping to either ﬁnish in the top two to earn a ﬁrst round bye at provincials or place third so that their opening round match will be against a weaker opponent. That such calculations are even a consideration is a big change for the Capilano men. The program has been in constant ﬂux for the past ﬁve years with several changes in coaches and only one, very brief, playoff appearance. This is Bennett’s ﬁrst year at the helm but he’s got no interest in dwelling on the results of the past. “My expectation anytime we play or do anything is high,” he said. “I really am not looking at the history of this group, I’m looking at what we have now. There is no history, as far as I’m concerned. We have a group that can do well at provincials and that’s what I’m looking at. I’m not looking at anything previous to this year.” Bennett said that fourth year setter Ben Ricketts has done a good job of leading the team while third year right side hitter See Cap page 23
WEST Vancouver natives Grifﬁn Reinhart and Morgan Rielly didn’t get the medals they were hoping for at the World Junior Hockey Championships last weekend in Ufa, Russia where Team Canada failed to live up to its gold-or-bust expectations. The two defencemen were expected to help the talented Canadian squad, loaded up even more by locked-out NHL talent, get back to the top step of the podium but it all came crashing down as two playoff losses dropped Canada to fourth. It was the ﬁrst time since 1998 that the team failed to win a medal at the tournament that grabs the spotlight in Canada every holiday season. The worlds ended on an even more sombre note for Reinhart as a somewhat bafﬂing suspension kept him out of the bronze medal game. The Canadians looked strong in the tournament’s opening round, winning all four of their pool games against Germany, Slovakia, Russia and the United States to earn a bye into the semiﬁnals. That, however, is where the wheels fell off as Canada faced the U.S.A. once more with the Yanks gaining revenge with a convincing 5-1 win to earn their way into the ﬁnal. The loss dropped Canada into the bronze medal game anddealtanevenmorecrushing blow to Reinhart as he earned a four-game suspension for a high-sticking infraction against U.S.A.’s Vince Trocheck. The play earned only a two-minute penalty during the game but a disciplinary committee later ruled that Reinhart made “eye contact with his opponent, raised his stick and delivered a two-handed slash to the head and neck area of Trocheck, who fell to the ice as a result.” Reinhart and Team Canada’s support staff disagreed with that assessment and the suspension. “I wanted to be a part of that game (against Russia). It’s the last game of the tournament, so it’s really devastating to me,” Reinhart said after learning of the suspension. “There’s no way they can know what I was thinking but I wasn’t thinking See Rielly page 23

Garret LaValley has provided much of the muscle. LaValley showed his versatility on the weekend as well, ﬁlling in at middle blocker after injuries left the Blues with only one big man. “He had a good match,” said Bennett. “He’s played left side and right side his whole career but he stepped into the middle and did a good job.” While the Blues still have room to grow, Bennett is happy with the way the team has developed so far this season. Capilano started the year 0-3 but have gone 8-3 since then. “We’re getting better every game,” said Bennett. “We’re doing an OK job of putting game plans together and making sure we execute those game plans, which is nice to see because that’s a really difﬁcult thing for young players — seeing a game plan and actually doing

what you’re supposed to do. It’s hard to put paper onto court and I think the guys are doing a good job of that.” The Blues host the Columbia Bible College Bearcats for a pair of matches this Friday and Saturday before going on the road every week for the next month. Two more wins this weekend against 2-10 CBC would inch Capilano closer to their goal of a top-three ﬁnish, but Bennett said they can’t afford to take the Bearcats lightly. “CBC, they’re a funny team,” he said. “If we don’t take them seriously, if we don’t prepare properly then they could come and bite us. But I think if we’re well prepared and ready for the games then we can do a good job against them.” Game times this weekend at the Capilano Sportsplex are 6 p.m. for the women and 8 p.m. for the men on both Friday and Saturday nights.

that at all. My track record is pretty good in the WHL. I’m not that type of player: I don’t play dirty. It was completely accidental. The guy wasn’t hurt on the play.” Reinhart said he wasn’t even aware that there was going to be a disciplinary hearing until well after the game was over. “That’s the largest suspension, the harshest suspension of this event,” said Hockey Canada’s senior director of hockey operations Scott Salmond, who attended the hearing with Reinhart. “We’re trying to get some consistency, understand one game, two games, four games. When we’re dealing with young players they need to understand what the JUNIOR HOCKEY CLUB standards are. . . . I’m never going to apologize for the way Canadian kids played. I don’t believe Grifﬁn Reinhart meant to slash that player in the head. I really don’t.” The four-game suspension has long-term consequences for Reinhart as well because he still has one more year of eligibility left at the junior level.

TENENYEI Les (Laslo) Andrew May 2, 1934 - Dec. 29, 2012 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Les after a short illness at Lions Gate Hospital. He now rests peacefully and is finally pain free in the arms of the Lord. He is survived by his loving wife Mary of 29 years, and the three children of his heart, Don Urdea Jr (Karen), Karen Seeley (Bill), Susan Urdea (Don), 15 grandchildren, and 13 greatgrandchildren. Sisters-in-law, Betty Escott, Theresa Biddlecombe, brother-in-law Leo Peters (Aline), and numerous nieces and nephews. Les was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1934 and was orphaned by the age of 10. He was taken in by a farming family until the age of 16, when he returned to Budapest to gain an education and to comply with mandatory military service. In 1956 in order to escape communist rule while a soldier, he made his way to an immigration camp in Italy where he chose immigration to Canada (he said it was because Canada had the shortest lineup). While here he became a member of the Boiler Makers Union and spent a long successful career as a steel fabricator at various shops around the lower mainland. His design and welding skills can be seen the world over. In 1983 he met and married the love of his life Mary, and said that he finally gained the family he had always wanted. He and Mary shared a love of dancing and in a particular ballroom, he gained a reputation as a professional videographer at professional ballroom events in Vancouver and Seattle, which also led to hundreds of weddings and special events. He was also a keen musician who could play numerous instruments and spent hours entertaining all with his beloved electric 'church style' organ. 'Papa Les' will be deeply missed by his family and friends. A very special thank you to the doctors and nursing staff at Lions Gate and St. Paul’s Hospitals who cared for him and commented on his never ending sense of humour through all the pain. We encourage all who knew Les to join family at a Mass of Christian Burial at Holy Trinity Parish, 2725 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver, on Saturday January 12, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. Father James Comey Celebrant.

The Do’s & Don’ts of Disappointment Cancelled plans, gifts that don’t live up to expectations, and team loss are examples of situational disappointments in a child’s life. • Teach them the difference between major and minor situations and appropriate reactions • Don’t belittle their feelings, instead acknowledge and empathize with them • Share your own disappointments and how you coped. • Prepare them in advance with realistic expectations • Teach them skills to deal with anger and to choose contentment • Discuss their self-talk and how it compares to reality • Don’t dwell on the past; it’s more productive to be future oriented • Point out the inaccurate thinking of blaming others. • Give them emotional and physical space to deal with disappointment and make sure to recognize their positive coping skills • Curb your urge to tell them “Get over it.” Let them process and understand their feelings.
