3rd N. Shore riding includes North Burnaby

North Vancouver split in two, though exactly where remains confusing

Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THE North Shore is poised to have three MPs in Ottawa after the next federal election, including one tasked with representing both North Burnaby and the eastern side of the North Shore. The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission issued its final report Monday on how the province’s ridings should be redrawn to make room for six new seats in Parliament. Elections Canada seeks to keep every riding at a population of about 105,000 residents according to census data tracked every 10 years. In its report, the borders of the West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country riding remain roughly the same, minus the 20,000 or so voters in Powell River, who will now join a north Vancouver Island riding. North Vancouver however will now by split in two along the western bank of the Seymour River, according to the report. However, the map on the commission website shows the new riding’s western boundary as Lynn Creek. Burnaby North-Seymour goes as far south as Lougheed Highway in Burnaby. The change is not going over well with the New Democrat MP who would See MP’s page 3

Police seek witness to WV assault and robbery

WEST Vancouver police have arrested two youths for a weekend assault and robbery, but an unidentified witness to the incident may hold the key to nabbing more suspects.

Two young men were in the midst of the attack at 12th Street and Kings Avenue around 9 p.m. Friday when a woman drove by in a white pickup truck, according to police. The woman yelled at the group, likely bringing a stop to the assault and scaring off the attackers. They left the scene in a black vehicle, possibly a BMW. “She disturbed the attack and the youth fled. We have arrested two youths in conjunction with this but we do believe there could be possible outstanding people in relation to this file,” said Const. Tammy Khorram, West Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman. The assailants, a 15 year old and 16 year old, have been charged with robbery and assault causing bodily harm. They cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. The West Vancouver Police Department are asking for the female driver of the white pickup truck or anyone else that has information about this crime to call police at 604-925-7300. — Brent Richter

Defining WV neighbourhood character

Council debates building bulk and how to create housing diversity Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

DISTRICT of West Vancouver council assessed its zoning and building policies Monday night with the goals of getting a handle on the massing of “monster houses,” as well as attracting development of more diverse and relatively affordable housing options. Among the actionable ideas on the table: allowing more infill development and coach houses, continuing to support

development of seniors’ and rental housing, looking to add to the district’s rental housing stock, and making changes to the official community plan to allow for more innovative housing proposals. Any changes council opts for will be built on the ones recommended by a 2008 working group. Council members are also seeking to clarify the district’s nebulous rules on what parts of a home will be counted as part of the total allowable floor area, as some basements are counted and others are not. “Clearly there seems to be an ability to finesse or abuse the regulations to (developers’) advantage in terms of creating bulk for housing,” said Coun.

Michael Lewis Michael Lewis. “You play a bit with the topography of the lot and the next think you know, look, it’s an apartment building” The district also faces challenges in dealing with the market forces that drive buyers, builders and sellers to seek the highest return on investment

with every property, Coun. Mary-Ann Booth noted, adding that the existing singlefamily zoning “incentivizes the biggest house possible.” While most of council seemed amenable to the plans for attracting a broader range of housing options including secondary suites, townhouses and pocket neighbourhoods, others remained skeptical. Coun. Bill Soprovich warned of creating a blanket policy for the entire district that would allow secondary suites and coach houses to be built anywhere, without any thought for the consequences. He warned of West Vancouver turninginto“eastofLonsdale,” where it is impossible to find parking, something he attributed to the City of North Vancouver going overboard with secondary suites. “What concerns me is where they go. When we look

at this, my first reaction is, are we going to blanket this community with the ability to allow for infill housing for the entire community below the highway? I have a real reaction right away to the concerns of neighbours.” But the district has already been far too slow while allowing too much development of “monster homes” devoid of any trees, according to one resident who came to speak at the meeting. “If you worked in business, you’d be fired,” said Justin Webb, a Braeside Street resident, noting that the city had only acted on a handful of the 2008 recommendations. Of the 25 houses built in his neighbourhood in recent years, Webb called 80 per cent of them “ugly” and said most homeowners stripped away any vegetation on the property to make room for a concrete

block home. “You’re ruining our community by lack of action. You’re ruining our community by not being tough and strong and setting tough guidelines to abide by,” he said. Webb’s comments drew applause from the handful of attendees in the gallery but they did not go unanswered from the district. “The rights of private property are, unfortunately, something that we deal with. No council can come in with a draconian hand and say that those rights will be swept clean and we will maintain some sort of notion, that we would all love to maintain, about character,” said Brent Leigh, deputy chief administrative officer for the district. Council is expecting a report back on a new coach house policy sometime in the summer.

MP’s poll shows 80% oppose Burnaby-NV merger From page 1 seek to represent Burnaby North-Seymour in 2015. Burnaby-Douglas MP Kennedy Stewart won his riding by just two per cent on election night in 2011 and he now worries the commission may have gerrymandered (redrawn election lines for the benefit of one party) a new Conservative seat in Parliament. “If all things were held equal and the election were fought on these boundaries, I probably would have lost by about seven per cent. It’s a fairly big swing partisanwise,” Stewart said. Stewart led an attempt to keep the boundaries as-is during a public hearing process that took place over the summer and fall last year. Stewart’s effort included conducting a phone survey that found the proposed changes almost universally unpalatable. “In both communities, 80 per cent of folks were opposed to this merger,” he said. “To me, this is a disappointing story in terms of public consultation.” But the commission had little choice according to Justice John Hall, British Columbia commission chairman. After the last redistricting, the North Shore grew to the point it was under-represented to the tune of 70,000 people. The commission looked at other alignments that didn’t cross Burrard

Inlet, but they involved cutting through West Vancouver and pulling in pieces of Pemberton, which didn’t make any more sense, Hall said. “We certainly didn’t get a lot of kudos at the public hearing but it was difficult to think of sensible alternatives with regard to the very heavy population numbers we had to start with,” Hall said. As for the criticism that the creation of Burnaby North-Seymour will likely benefit the Conservatives, Hall pointed that the non-partisan commission has ruffled feathers in every party as it adds six new ridings in the province. “I certainly don’t know how that will pan out. I guess that sometimes one member of Parliament will be happy with it. A Conservative member was saying to us on the Island that he thought this was bad news for his party,” Hall said. Andrew Saxton, Conservative MP for the existing North Vancouver riding, said he too would have preferred to keep the riding as whole but he understood the commission’s reasons. “The status quo is no longer an option and that’s why the commission has come up with this recommendation,” he said. In the meantime, Stewart said he plans to campaign on issues that will make the two sides of Burrard Inlet natural allies in the 2015 election including fighting the Kinder Morgan pipelines expansion.

Fiery crash closes Ironworkers crossing

THE Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing had to be shut down for an hour Saturday as a fiery crash choked off traffic. “It was a single-vehicle accident. The guy lost control of his vehicle and went off the road (at the south end near the McGill off-ramp,)” said Staff Sgt. Dave Savoy, spokesman for the Port Mann Freeway Patrol. The bridge had to be closed from about 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. as emergency crews evacuated the injured driver and put out the flames erupting from the vehicle and a hazardous material crew dealt with a fuel spill in the nearby ditch. The incident led TransLink to cut off service on its routes that cross the bridge, sending them instead to the SeaBus terminals to get passengers across Burrard Inlet. B.C. Ambulance Service paramedics took the driver to Vancouver General Hospital with several cracked ribs. — Brent Richter

WV begins department reviews Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

DISTRICT of West Vancouver taxpayers can rest assured their council has vetted every program offered by every department of the district, and decided every tax dollar is well-invested. Or at least that is the idea behind the divisional service reviews that kicked off Monday night. Under the service review, senior staff from the district’s departments will face council to present not only their department’s financial and business plans, but also to answer questions about how budgets are spent, how well the department is meeting its goals, what opportunities for efficiency can be taken advantage of, and how service delivery would be affected by shifts in budgets. The district is on track to pass its third consecutive budget with a zero-per cent tax increase for property owners, but the operating budget is still growing much faster than the rate of inflation, Coun.

Michael Lewis noted. “I don’t want six hours of patting ourselves on the back,” Lewis said. “I want to get down to some brass tacks.” Council opted for the divisional services reviews after considering a core service review, which would have been conducted by an outside accounting/consulting firm at a cost of around $230,000. But, while outside expertise is welcome, council members decided unanimously that the tough decisions that come with budget making must be made by elected council members, not driven by outsiders. Getting a first-hand knowledge of each department’s costs, revenues and achievements is something that is incumbent upon the elected members to do on behalf of their constituents, Mayor Michael Smith said. “Council members . . . don’t really understand how programs are decided, how they’re delivered or what the alternatives are, so See Budget page 5

RCMP nab accused thief in armed takedown Police track alleged thief after use of stolen credit card

Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

AN accused thief may have snatched roughly $9,000 worth of goods from a parked vehicle Jan. 21, but was in cuffs just five hours later after North Vancouver RCMP caught up with him in a highprofile takedown. Police say the man broke into a parked vehicle on West 15th Street around 7:30 p.m., stealing a purse, wallet, expensive jewelry, house and car keys and credit cards. Police got onto the suspect’s trail after he used the victim’s credit cards at two nearby gas stations less than an hour later. After reviewing security footage at the gas stations and identifying the man and his vehicle, Mounties fanned out around the area. Shortly after midnight, a Keith Road resident alerted RCMP to a suspicious vehicle parked nearby matching the description of one police were looking for. Several cars descended on the area to make the arrest. “The suspect was arrested with numerous pieces of stolen property in his possession,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, North Vancouver RCMP spokesman. “Police are speculating that with the culprit having the victim’s house key and another car key, further

choice for thieves in recent years, the North Shore isn’t experiencing criminal activity was intended.” The arrest was an unnerving spectacle in an otherwise quiet a noticeable spike in vehicle break-ins, De Jong said.

I will shoot you.’ openers and keys are never left in parked cars, De Jong added. and I was like, what is going on?” said Farhan Mohamed.

COMMUNITY NOTICE

Budget reviews to continue when a member of the public asks questions, we basically give them a blank stare. . . . “How do you make better decisions? You have better knowledge and that’s really what we’re trying to do here,” Smith said. “I’m not going to take a back seat to any consultant who comes in here without anything like the breadth of knowledge that we have, so we are the ones who should be doing this review.” Hiring an outside firm would have resulted in “picking gnats out of a dog’s collar,” according to Coun. Bill Soprovich, who said the district and its staff were well positioned to run a review by themselves. “We have a AAA credit rating. We have incredible investments.Wehaveabeautiful community. Everybody wants to live here,” he said, turning to staff. “When we give them a challenge or a job, they go at it with the best of intentions and ability. I’ve seen that repeated over 16 years and it’s improved. And I’ve seen it improved even better over the last three or four years.” The parks and community

services department was the first to face the review, or at least have an introductory session. Staff presented council with an interactive display, allowing them to pull up details on each of the dozens

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.

Redraw the lines W

ITH due respect to Justice John Hall, chairman of the B.C. Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission, there is a not so “difficult to think of” alternative to the creation of a Burnaby North–Seymour riding. And it would be a far better choice for the vast majority of North Vancouver and Burnaby voters affected by the present arbitrary lines on a map. Leaving aside the fact that the commission is confused about the location of the Seymour River and the new riding’s western boundary, both the hearings and the telephone poll conducted by Burnaby–Douglas MP Kennedy Stewart clearly showed there is no public support for this artificial creation. Neither North Vancouverites nor Burnabians claim much of a relationship with each other. The only link is the

bridge with the world’s longest name and even that connection proves fragile on occasion. The name of the new riding favours Burnaby, but depending where the sitting MP places his or her constituency office, Burnaby residents could feel slighted. Yes, a boundary redesign has been on the cards for some time as the population of North Vancouver continues to grow, but adding a North Van–Seymour riding and creating a North Van– Ambleside riding between it and West Vancouver–Sunshine Coast–Sea to Sky Country makes considerably more sense than the mash-up recommended by the commission. MLA Ralph Sultan has ably represented a provincial riding that incorporates elements of North Vancouver and West Vancouver for years. We fail to see why this cannot be done federally.

Tanker risks exaggerated

Dear Editor: Regarding your Jan. 20 Other Voices guest column, North Coast No Place for Oil Tankers: Even in this Internet age the media has enormous power to shape public opinion. One example is the article referenced above with its vivid tale of Hecate Strait, a wasteland of howling winds and mountainous seas, a 20,000-ton ship standing on her nose amid the monstrous waves, and narrow Douglas Channel with strong tidal currents and rapidly deteriorating weather. This impression of the ocean hell through which oil

takers would have to navigate has been reinforced by a graveyard list of marine disasters: Titanic, Exxon Valdes, Queen of the North, Costa Concordia. Only missing is Moby Dick chasing tankers steered by Captain Hook. Undoubtedly, this article has turned some readers into oil tankers opponents, particularly when it is signed by a seemingly independent expert, Roger Sweeny, retired naval commander and a master mariner. But to make his anti-tankers rant more credible, Sweeny fails to tell his readers about his membership in Suzuki Elders, David Suzuki’s propaganda organization

dedicated to environmental issues. The fact is that in spite of Sweeny’s claims, today’s modern double-hull tankers with the most up-to-date navigation equipment on board, satellite-based longterm weather reports, and with not only captains but also local pilots on the bridge and tugboat escort could safely navigate the Douglas Channel and Hecate Strait. After all, none of Sweeny’s disasters would have occurred if those ships would have had been equipped and manned as the tankers will be. Jerry Sklenar North Vancouver

Armstrong editorial insightful on hero-worship Dear Editor: Kudos to you for your Jan. 20 editorial regarding Lance Armstrong and the part played by those of us who willingly ignored the mounting evidence because of a deep need to keep the illusion intact. Your kind of insight is rare. In 63 years, I have witnessed repeatedly, and devastatingly, this “see no evil” phenomenon which overrides normal intelligence whenever we need to protect our ego. It’s been said that our greatest fear is not of death, but of being wrong, and I’ve found that indeed there is a “rightness stubbornness” at the heart of any prolonged gullibility, because our culture does not make easy the humbleness of admitting that we were duped. When I was married to an abusive man who portrayed a hail-

fellow-well-met persona to others, I saw a world that was more than eager to believe his facade even after his death, and to condemn his drug-addicted sons rather than look for the cause of their behaviour. Sometimes I feel like I’m living in an upside down world, where evil triumphs over good. It won’t change until we give ourselves permission to be wrong — to re-examine our faulty assessments. Or until we all have pots of money to hire a lawyer when people in power can’t see the evil that is staring them in the face. Either way works for me. Maureen Kerr North Vancouver

Let’s keep pushing for a vote on amalgamation Dear Editor: I was happy to see the “A word” on the front page of the North Shore News. Mayor Darrell Mussatto’s comments on why it wouldn’t be a good idea seem pretty lame. Surely operating just one municipal hall, and all the salaries that go along with it, would save money to start with. Obviously the mayors do not want to lose their jobs, but the taxpayers are tired of paying such huge taxes each year, and usually always with an increase. Let’s keep some pressure on the governments in North and West Vancouver to at least put it to a vote. I’m sure the residents of the North Shore would welcome it. Dorothy Chala North Vancouver

Eagles use the Esplanade nest Dear Editor: I live at 151 East Keith Rd. facing south from the 15th floor. I have been watching the eagle’s nest in the 200-block of Esplanade for at least five years. They certainly use it every spring. Whether or not the nest looks up to code to a so-called expert is irrelevant. These same experts cut down the tree near the train bridge at Ambleside which the eagles used to survey the mouth of the Capilano River. Perhaps they should consult with someone in the area before firing up the chainsaws. Measure twice, cut once. Mike Robertson North Vancouver

No shortage of projects for the new AGLG “We are most interested in hearing from members of the public who have suggestions of areas where the AGLG can be most helpful to British Columbia’s local governments by conducting performance audits that may identify ways to improve value for money or highlight best practices.” aglg.ca Ms. Basia Ruta, CA Auditor General for Local Government, Surrey, B.C. Dear Ms. Ruta: Congratulations on your appointment as British Columbia’s first ever auditor general for local government. We have waited a long time for this day and look forward to reading your reports, as we do those of B.C. Auditor General John Doyle. We appreciate your offer to consider our suggestions about your work and understand that your mandate is to conduct performance audits to evaluate whether councils are providing good “stewardship of public assets” and “achieving value for money in their operations.” In that vein, I offer my own thoughts for your consideration. A review of the information on your website notes that your first milestone will be the release of what will become an annual service plan — the first expected sometime in April. Bearing that in mind, I hope that over the next few weeks you will have time to review the Community Charter/Local Government Act — the foundation upon which our local government structure is built. Recent experience here on the North Shore suggests there is an urgent need for a clarification and strengthening of the legislation that covers conflict of interest and the public hearing process. In that regard, if you should schedule a review of the City and District of

Just Asking

Elizabeth James North Vancouver, I urge you to consider the two municipalities concurrently because, as residents support mirrored councils and staffs for a combined population of only 131,000, many of them want to see a facilitated dialogue on the pros and cons of amalgamation — no matter what some politicians would prefer. I agree and suggest that a politician who denies citizens that opportunity is in a direct conflict of interest. My next suggestion also touches on democratic process. If British Columbians are to play a meaningful role in determining their local destiny, the act must be returned to its precharter status with respect to referendums. The charter’s “alternative approval process” is unwieldy and nothing more than negative-billing: “Council plans to do such-and-such unless enough of you read this advertisement and tell us not to.” And now, Ms. Ruta, we come to a long-standing North Shore bug-a-boo: our regional transportation authority. If you compare the Aug. 9, 2001 report and recommendations on TransLink by former provincial auditor-general Wayne Strelioff to the November-December 2012 reports of TransLink Commissioner Martin Crilly and the Efficiency Review by North Vancouver’s Shirocca Consulting, I believe you will find significant room for improvement with

respect to value for money. Commissioner Crilly notified me on Sunday that two further reports by Shirocca are due to appear on his website on Feb. 1. Taxpayers elsewhere in B.C. might believe another review by you would focus too much on the 22 Lower Mainland municipalities. If so, they would do themselves an injustice because, as provincial and federal taxpayers they too are funding the bottomless pit that is TransLink, its gold-plated SkyTrain projects and its unwieldy, costly governance structure.

In particular, when it comes to “achieving value for money,” it would be a relief for your office to settle once and for all the TransLinkmanipulated comparative cost debate over SkyTrain versus Light Rail Transit technology. If you were to do that — without political interference — I have no doubt you could save taxpayers billions of dollars in capital and debtservicing costs. In general terms, council budgets increasingly suffer from the downloading of what were previously provincial responsibilities

— with insufficient funding to support the services. Although that applies throughout the province, the problem is exacerbated for North Shore residents who are disproportionately burdened by high propertytax assessments and by Metro Vancouver regional decisions over which they have no direct control. No control because the charter does not require members of council to poll the majority opinion of their colleagues before they vote at the regional committee level. At regional tables it is a case of voting one man’s

— or woman’s — opinion. So the final item I would like to see reviewed — before the 2014 municipal election — would cover the pros and cons of allowing citizens to elect the board of the Greater Vancouver Regional District. Never again do I want to hear that a member of council must “take off his/her North Shore council hat, when sitting at a regional table” as one councillor said. “No taxation without representation” is such an important concept that, earlier this month at the

DNV approves more traffic calming West 22nd, West Keith to get speed bumps

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

TRAFFIC along West Keith Road and West 22nd Street should become slower and safer following District of North Vancouver council’s decision last week to add speed bumps and raised crosswalks in the Pemberton Heights neighbourhood. The plan includes three raised crosswalks and eight new speed bumps and speed tables. Speed tables generally follow the same dimensions as raised crosswalks and are designed to limit traffic speed to 50 kilometres per hour. The cost of implementation is approximately $48,700, according to a staff report. West Keith and West 22nd face vehicle volumes of 1,700 and 1,500 vehicles a day, respectively. The plan is not intended to reduce volume but to slow traffic and make pedestrians safer. In a recent survey, 78 per cent of Pemberton

Heights respondents were in favour of the measures. While he spoke in favour of the plan, Coun. Alan Nixon said the district should consider making improvements to Pemberton Avenue between West Keith Road and West 20th Street. “There is no sidewalk,” he said. “Kids have got no safe passage on Pemberton Avenue.” The lone note of dissent for the plan was voiced by Coun. Mike Little, who suggested the speed bumps are clustered too close together. “I think this looks awful,” Little said. “I think that it is overkill on West Keith.” Three of the speed bumps could do more good on West 21st Street, according to Little. “I know it’s a narrower road, but it’s going to be the school access,” he said. “If I’m a local, I’m going to realize pretty quickly that I can race up some of these side streets and race down 21st and get through and skip about five speed humps in the process. Unfortunately, that means traffic is going to be re-routed right next to the elementary school.” At least one driver looking for a quick route will still take West 22nd Street, said Coun. Robin Hicks. “As an occasional route runner, I would suggest that I would go along, probably West 22nd,” Hicks said.

Bomb scare closes WV intersection A busy West Vancouver intersection had to be closed down briefly on Monday morning as police reacted to a potential bomb scare.

West Vancouver police shut down Mathers Avenue at 15th Street at just after 8:30 a.m.

and called in Vancouver Police Department’s explosives unit after someone reported a suspicious package left nearby. On closer inspection, the package turned out to contain some very non-explosive reading material and traffic returned to normal by 10:40 a.m. — Brent Richter

RCMP seek owners of recovered industrial tools NORTH Vancouver RCMP are looking for the owners of some industrial tools likely stolen from a parked vehicle or vehicles in recent months.

Mounties received a rash of reports about cars being broken into and ransacked between August and December last year. After an in-depth investigation, officers searched a North Vancouver home and arrested two suspects on Nov. 30. Among the items seized: a Belimo HVAC Actuator,

“With more property identified, police will be able to lay additional charges,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. Nonnie Ross, 34, is facing two counts of theft, two counts of possession of stolen property and one count of trafficking in stolen property. Wade Nahanee, 32, is facing two charges of theft and two charges of possession of stolen property. Anyone who may know the victim of the theft is asked to contact Const. Ken Alexander of the North Vancouver RCMP property crime unit at 604-9697506. — Brent Richter

Spike in spikes a coincidence?

RESIDENTS in the Blueridge area are finding their tires punctured with nails or screws a little too often for it to be accidental, according to neighbours.

William Fairbairn found a nail driven into his tire a year-and-a-half ago and blamed it on driving through a construction site. But, in recent weeks, it seems his friends and neighbours are also frequent victims of what appears to be a deliberate M.O. “BCAA came up to inflate the tires and the (technician) said ‘All I do lately is come up to this area because so many people have nails or screws in their tires,’” Fairbairn said As legendary James Bond villain Auric Goldfinger noted: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is

enemy action.” BCAA could not confirm a trend or a spike — no pun intended — in the number of incidents in the area as their technicians only record the type of call they respond to, not the cause, according to Niela Melanio, BCAA’s media specialist. Flat tire replacement requests go up in the wintertime, as tubes are more likely to burst or leak in low temperatures. But there could be a trend of vandalism that has simply gone unnoticed, according to police. “People should be calling the RCMP if they feel they’ve been targeted specifically in that neighbourhood,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. “If there’s more than one or two, it’s worth reporting it, and the police will investigate.” — Brent Richter

Home Ideas

Barb Lunter I love tracking the decorating trends for 2013. What will it be this year? Will neutrals take over? What is the colour of the year? Some people love to stay with the trend from year to year where others believe

that a traditional decor is timeless. I’ve always felt the trick is to integrate a few of the on-trend accessories and furniture pieces into your main decor from year to year. You don’t have to break the bank and stay on top of each trend but rather accessorize with a few new, colourful toss cushions or display a vase by the latest designer. If you are in to trends, here are some to follow for 2013. Are you in the mood for a kitchen renovation? You may want to bypass the traditional oak and maple cabinets for the more trendy alder, birch and bamboo varieties. Bamboo, for example, is 25 per cent harder than oak and it looks fantastic. It is also more environmentally

friendly as it only takes about three years for it to grow back once it is cut whereas a tree can take many years. Glass backsplashes are also the rage, combined with a mix of different kitchen finishes. A “real” eclectic look is very much in style in today’s kitchens coupled with bold and bright coloured walls and flashy wallpapers. Yes, wallpapers are making a strong comeback. If you are looking for a great sink, take a look at the new seamless, stainless ones. They are beautiful and fit nicely in many styles of kitchens. In living rooms, look for nature-inspired accessories. Bamboo candles and many vases and bowls with trees, leaves and other natureinspired motifs.

Super Survivors: A program for families with children ages five to 11 Monday, Feb. 11 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at VanDusen Botanical Garden, 5251 Oak St., Vancouver. Participants will play a survivor game and learn about the many uses of native plants. Fee: $25 per non-member family or $15 per member family. Registration required: 604-718-5898 or familyprograms@vandusen.org. Walk in the Rainforest — The Wakening Forest: A program for adults to look for signs of forest plants waking up and discover how to identify plants in the winter time Sunday, Feb. 24, 1-2:30 p.m. at Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre, 3663 Park Rd., North Vancouver. Fee: $8.25. Registration required: 604-990-3755.

Gold is also starting to show up in modern and traditional living rooms. Look for a reappearance of bleached, limed and painted woods. This is something that is being done to achieve lighter and softer tones in cabinetry, furniture and flooring. Statement lighting is in. Large, bold and very stylish light fixtures are everywhere. It’s a sort of “go big or go home” train of thought. Many light fixtures are like pieces of art with their sculptural lines and textures. All are really quite beautiful. I have also seen many rooms in tones of green. Green is definitely popular this year in everything from

The key is organization. We plan all of the work in advance and have all of the specifications of each phase of construction defined to the smallest detail. Your Apex representative will sit down with you and comprehensively walk you through all the stages of your project. Our system is based directly on commercial construction practices, where the scope of the average project numbers over 1000 separate line items. And like commercial construction, Apex clients know the bottom-line before their construction starts. The painstaking work to reach this level of detail is a worthwhile, non-binding investment of your time, empowering you to get a competitive price in the open marketplace. We are confident that after ‘shopping’ the alternatives, you will come back to us in a comfortable and confident state of mind. With everyone’s expectations clearly defined, the angst of signing on the dotted line will be replaced by thrilling anticipation. Apex uses this system on all new home projects, both custom and ‘spec’ homes. We encourage you to follow our work at Banbury Street in North Vancouver.

Bundle up and get to work in winter garden TOO cold to do any gardening?

Dig Deep

Todd Major

there is time now, the middle of winter is one of the best seasons to remove all those stubborn weeds that have withstood all other attempts to remove them. Hand digging is the most environmentally friendly way to remove weeds while simultaneously providing a good physical workout. Look carefully throughout the garden and within the cracks in paving to find any hiders in the house and remove them now to prevent reseeding in spring. It’s never too cold for

I think not; there’s plenty to do and here are some ideas to get you started with winter gardening work. Cold weeding is good exercise: Just because it is winter does not mean the weeds have stopped growing. Our mild coastal winters allow a wide range of weeds to continue growing right thorough the winter so they are ready in spring to pop out a fresh crop of seeds to colonize the garden. For those reasons and because

division: Winter dormancy provides one of the best opportunities to divide many hardy perennials including hosta, astilbe, hardy geranium, kniphophia, ferns, astrantia, alchemilla, berginia, delphinium, echinacea and many more. As long as your perennials are hardy for our region they can be divided now without any worry of frost damage and 90 per cent of all perennials in North Shore gardens can be divided now. To divide perennials, dig up your plant with a good sized root ball

and place it on the lawn or driveway. Use two digging forks and insert them back to back into the middle of your perennial. Then push the forks apart from each other to split your plant. Never use a shovel or knife to cut perennials because of the excessive tissue damage inflicted by shovels or knifes and frankly, only cavemen use shovels to divide plants. Forks cause a minimal amount of damage and allow roots from opposing sides to be pulled with the splitting division. Replant the plant parts you want in the garden and pot up the extras to give to friends or use for barter with other gardeners. After you have replanted your divisions, always water them into the earth to prevent frost heave and allow for intimate contact between root and soil. Don’t forget to mulch your new plantings. Cold winter pruning: Now is the best time to prune many trees, shrubs and vines if you want to re-structure and invigorate your plants. There is no need to worry about frost damage on the cut stems as long as you prune when the temperature is above freezing and you restrict pruning to

hardy plants. Last week at the UBC Botanical Garden I trained the students on winter pruning of climbing vines such as wisteria, kiwi and grape to restructure and develop new growth. Fruit trees will also benefit from winter pruning as long as they are not pruned too hard and the restructuring is followed by a summer pruning to direct the resulting growth. Do not use wound paint; it causes rot to develop. Do not make sloped or angled cuts; they are wrong, archaic and unnecessary. Always clean your pruning tools before use to prevent the spread of diseases and to improve tool efficiency. Too cold outside? There’s work inside. Winter is the best time to maintain and repair gardening tools and equipment. All those dull shovels and spades can be sharpened using a file, and you can do it by hand at home. Simply work the leading edge of the shovel with the file, pushing in one direction at a slight angle to file off any bent edges or to create a clean sharp

furniture to lighting and flooring. However, if green is not really your thing you may want to try combining a neutral space with a few tones of blue. There are many decorative accessories in various shades of blue out in the marketplace right now. Everything from vases to toss cushions to full bedding for bedrooms is available on store shelves. When you talk about trends, in the end it really

is all about what you and your family are comfortable with. Many of us like to come home to calm, neutral interiors to unwind at the end of the day whereas others love to embrace the new trends. It’s a personal choice but one can never argue that it is sure exciting to see what’s out there. Barb Lunter is a freelance writer with a passion for home décor, entertaining and floral design.

WINTER gardening chores include pruning such fastgrowing vines as the kiwi.

Refurbish tools now From page 16 edge. The wood handles on rakes, shovels, forks etc can be refurbished by sanding them with fine sand paper to remove any slivers or rough spots, making them soft to the touch. For mechanized equipment like lawn mowers, now is the time to do a tuneup to prepare the mower for summer use. Change the oil, air filter and spark plug. Clean out the underside of the mower’s housing to remove built-up grass clippings. Be sure to tilt up the mower with the air filter on top to avoid running oil through the carburetor. Have the mower’s blade sharpened or replaced as needed. Dull mower blades

lead to turf diseases due to the ragged cuts they make. Sharpen and clean pruning tools to remove built-up plant residue, which could spread disease each time you make a cut. Use graphite to lubricate pruners because graphite is water and temperature resistant, making it the perfect lubricant for our climate. So there is your midwinter gardening work list and no excuse for not doing it. Don’t forget your gloves, it’s chilly out there.

Netflix newbies react with cautious confusion

Practical Geek Barry Link

FOR Christmas this year, I gave a couple I know a gift of two months free to Netflix. They appreciated the gift, but they weren’t sure what to make of it. While they have two laptops and a home computer and are avid users of Facebook, they prefer a more basic approach to tech in their lives. They are cable cord cutters in their own right, having never had cable TV and instead preferring to borrow DVDs from the public library — an excellent option. So when faced with the torrent of choices that is Netflix, their response to the service has been cautious confusion. Their reaction is understandable: Netflix does a poor job of providing a straightforward way to discover what’s in its library. Its grouping of titles into genres, while helpful, never seems to catch everything that

should be included in those individual genres. Beginners to Netflix can experience a feeling of being lost at sea. To help out my friends, I’ve made a list of selected titles I think they’ll enjoy. I’ll share that in a moment, but before I do, here are three bits of advice to novice Netflixers. Firstly, the instant queue is your friend. If you find a show or movie you think you might want to watch down the road, save it to your queue because you might not come across it again anytime soon. Secondly, bookmark the website What’s New on Netflix Canada. Unaffiliated with Netflix, it provides daily updates on the newest titles, what titles are expiring soon and a more useful search engine than offered by Netflix. Finally, Netflix is available on more devices, from smartphones to tablets to computers, than almost any other online media service out there. It’s not just for your TV, so don’t feel tethered to your living room to use it. So, here’s my suggested starter list. First, some TV shows that are hard to find on regular TV in Canada and show the value of Netflix in making them widely available: ■ Wallander: Kenneth Branagh stars as the fictional Swedish detective for whom the series is named. Beautifully shot and acted in English, it’s a quieter take on Sweden’s hidden disturbing side than the Dragon Tattoo film trilogy.

■ MI-5: North America had 24, but the U.K. had this BBC spy series which shares much of the same thrillerbased DNA. Vaguely lefty, sometimes ridiculous, it’s breathless in its portrait of the spy service of a faded empire trying to protect its little country from being ground up by in struggle between global superpowers and international and domestic terrorists. Don’t get attached to any of the cast — this is British TV. ■ The Hour: Another BBC show, this time about the dawn of investigative TV news in the U.K. in the 1950s. Fine acting and Mad Menlike focus on period detail make up for unnecessarily overdramatic plotlines. ■ Justified: Created by a Canadian with a Canadian in the lead role, this smart, funny and moody series based on an Elmore Leonard character who returns to his native Kentucky as a U.S. marshal is probably the best American cop show on TV right now. Netflix has the first two seasons available, with the second even better than the first. Side note: I’ve been told, repeatedly, by my co-watcher of this series that Timothy Olyphant looks great without his shirt on. ■ How I Met Your Mother: An American sitcom that I completely missed when it first debuted. Like The Big Bang Theory, it’s slick and not very original but is very funny. It’s also an example of Netflix’s

DON’T feel tethered to your living room to use Netflix. The online media service is available on mobile devices including smartphones, tablets and laptops. ability to help you catch up with shows you missed the first time around. And two film choices: ■ Alatriste: Viggo Mortensen stars in this Spanish movie, based on a series of books, about a 17th century mercenary fighting and romancing his way through the era’s wars. Full of action and period flavour, it’s an example of the many foreign

films on Netflix you won’t find elsewhere. ■ Flame & Citron: I used Netflix to create a mini-film festival for myself of films about occupied Europe under the Nazis in the Second World War. This was the Danish entry and is based on the true story of two very different resistance fighters. A complex and dark look at a side of the war modern North

Americans know nothing about. Have your own Netflix picks? Feel free to drop me a line and I’ll include them in a future column. Barry Link is editor of the Vancouver Courier newspaper and a geek enthusiast. Email him at blink@vancourier.com or follow him on Twitter @ trueblinkit.

last a lifetime For over six years, Dr. Rahmany and the staff at Skyline Dental Centre have been committed to providing you with compassionate, professional dental care of the highest standards in a comfortable and relaxed environment. To ensure that your smile lasts a lifetime, here are five reasons to see your dentist.

1 2 3 4 5 TO HELP MAINTAIN GOOD PHYSICAL HEALTH

TO PREVENT GUM DISEASE, BAD BREATH AND TO KEEP YOUR TEETH

One of the best reasons to take care of your mouth is that people with periodontal or gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease according to recent studies. Oral bacteria can enter the bloodstream, attaching to fatty plaques in the heart’s blood vessels, causing clots to form. Inflammation in the gums contributes to swelling in the arteries. Regular dental cleanings will likely reduce your risk of heart disease and strokes.

Gum disease is an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. If diagnosed early, it can be treated and reversed. Studies show that 85% of people with persistent bad breath have a dental problem that is to blame. Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing bad breath. If treatment is not received, a more serious and advanced stage of gum disease may follow, leading to tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings and checkups are key factors in preventing this from happening.

TO DETECT DENTAL PROBLEMS EARLY

Dr. Rahmany and the hygienists at Skyline Dental Centre will be able to detect any early signs of problems with your teeth and gums. Early detection of cavities, broken fillings and gum disease are easily treatable. If these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery and removal of teeth could become the only treatment options available. Your hygienist will help to ensure that you are maintaining your oral health and will put you back on the right path if you fall off track with your oral care.

TO PREVENT ORAL CANCER

TO HAVE A WHITE SMILE

According to Health Canada, about 4000 new cases will be diagnosed in Canada this year, and about 1500 people will die from oral cancer this year. When you have your dental cleaning, we use special equipment geared towards screening for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.

Your hygienist will remove most coffee, tobacco and tea stains, and will polish your teeth to a beautiful shine

With our new SpaDent Whitening system, we also provide state-of-theart technology to improve the shade of your teeth in just 20 minutes, WITH NO SENSITIVITY! Ask us about our new SpaDent system. Call us at Skyline Dental Centre for a free consultation today!

PARENTING

Teens respond positively to parent’s trust

Parenting Today Kathy Lynn

TRUST is a huge issue between parents and teens. On the one hand they are our children and need rules and consequences. They need active parenting. On the other hand, they require increasing amounts of freedom and the chance to create their own identity and live their own lives. It’s a constant conundrum and probably one of the major challenges to raising teens. Teens need to know that they are trusted. We need to believe that we have raised them to know the difference between right and wrong and that we can let them go without constant surveillance. It is actually more difficult to trust our kids today because we

have the technology to keep better track of them. But, we should not be using it. The best way to let our kids know that we trust them is to tell them. Come right out and simply say the words. When we let our teens make decisions for themselves they start to experience the independence they are working toward and will need if they are going to become capable young men and women. They need to separate from us. That need is so essential that if we don’t allow them to assert their independence they are likely to rebel. It simply makes more sense to allow our teen to choose her own CD and which movie to watch than to be dealing with a child who may rebel by using drugs or shoplifting. When our children are going out for an evening it’s not a good idea to grill them on every little detail. But, we do need to know where they are going, whom they will be with and how they are getting home. Those three questions are basic. But when we continue with a barrage of questions about every little detail they become frustrated and angry and believe we don’t trust them at all. The same is true when we grill them after they get home.

Often it’s not about trust, it’s simple curiosity. But it’s best to just welcome them home and let them decide what to tell you and what to withhold. Allowing teens to make decisions is another way to demonstrate your trust. Let them determine when they will do their homework or when they are tired and ready for bed. The more we demonstrate that we trust our teens the more they will be trustworthy because they won’t want to let us down. I have heard parents say that their teens need to earn their trust. When you do that you are giving them the message that you believe that it is likely that they are fundamentally untrustworthy and they must prove themselves to you before you will trust them. It should be the absolute opposite. Your teen needs to know with certainty that you trust him. You let her know that you trust her, and you let her make more of her own decisions. You do not ask too many questions either before or after an event and you are not constantly checking up on her while she’s away. As long as they come home on time and you have heard no reports of any trouble, trust

WHEN your teen goes out for an evening, don’t grill her on every detail, writes columnist Kathy Lynn. that they are behaving in a way that is positive and trustworthy. Everybody makes mistakes and teens are no exception. They may break the trust. The first step is to realize that this is not something they did to you — it’s not personal. It is simply an error and should be treated as such.

Deal with this situation, talk to him about why it is a problem and why there needs to be consequences. But then life will go on and he will again be your trustworthy child. Bottom line, teens who are trusted by caring parents generally behave in ways that

are correct and appropriate.

Expert Dental Care For Kids Your child’s health is one of your most important priorities. From diet and exercise to medical and dental care, it’s important that they have access to the best materials and expertise. For ten years, Dr. Gerry Pochynok (known as Dr. Gerry) and the team at North Vancouver’s Pacific Pediatric Dental Centre have been working with North Shore families to make sure their youngsters get the best dental care available in a relaxed and nurturing environment. The centre’s patient-oriented atmosphere and level of expert treatment are the result of the best training available and a lot of hard work. “After completing a four year dentistry degree program, an additional 2 or 3 years of training are required to become a pediatric dentist,” says Dr. Gerry.“The specialized program of study and hands-on experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the needs of infants, children and adolescents, including persons with special health needs. I worked in general dentistry for 6 years and realized that working with children was a very rewarding part of dentistry.” For Dr. Gerry, the extra training was a big commitment. “I completed a one year residency at the BC Children’s Hospital. Following the residency I moved to Rochester, New York to start a two year pediatric dentistry specialization at the Eastman School of Medicine & Dentistry. I returned to British

Columbia in 2002 after having completed my specialization.” It was worth it. Today the Pacific Pediatric Dental Centre is a state-of-theart healthcare centre where children feel at ease. “Our goal is to establish a safe, happy‘dental home’for children in which we implement preventive dental health habits as well as early detection and treatment of diseases. I designed my office unlike that of conventional dental offices to make children feel comfortable so that they feel good about visiting the dentist and take pride in caring for their teeth.”

Having early positive experiences creates a positive attitude to dental care.

“Pleasant dental visits promote trust and confidence in your child that will last a lifetime. In addition, it is my responsibility to provide the

Developing a Positive Approach to Discipline

It is very interesting that the word discipline means to teach. The root meaning is“the capacity to learn, the process of learning”and is based on the word“disciple”. And so when considering how you may want to approach your child when it comes to discipline, taking on this real meaning may bring positive changes. Firstly, as a parent you want to look and listen to yourself, even noting your responses over a period of time or talking with your own parents may help. What you observe….what you hear may surprise you. Keeping a diary over a period of two weeks may shed light on behaviours you did not realize you were implementing or expecting. Letting go of responses you have in place from your childhood may be just the adjustment that is needed. What the child requires is love, respect, an ear (listening honestly with eye contact), appropriate amounts of sleep, and nutritious food, including eating meals together. All are essential elements to successful partnerships and communities alike. And a home community is no different…some even say it is sacred, something to be cherished. Once you have become more aware of your responses, this is the time to set down guidelines with your partner and children when appropriate, remembering that few are best. These can be written down and even displayed in a common area. They can include: Respect all, each family member is expected to take part in keeping the home running smoothly (When you use something put it back in its place and clean up

any mess you’ve made etc.), always tell the truth and do not be afraid to admit you made a mistake. When determining these guidelines, try to predict the consequences of your reactions when they are not followed.

Watch your use of the word “no” by giving choices, like how to say no politely….

The guidelines can be explained in a positive manner. Avoid the“don’t” word by using the“do”word. Model the expected behaviour yourself, and acknowledge behaviours that are in the right direction. Redirecting to a more appropriate choice rather than scolding is best. Ask the question,“was that the best choice”and then remind the child of the guidelines. The adults can role play a sequence of events to demonstrate a response or approach to a situation. If you are not too upset you can re-teach the lesson, but you may want to wait until the time is right. Above all, be consistent and fair.

Children’s Programs Here at North Shore Taekwondo, your child will be empowered with life skills like confidence and focus while learning practical self defense skills. Call today for a free introductory lesson!

The goal is to shift the emphasis from control by the adult to collaboration, which in turn causes the child to see the adult as an ally. Watch your use of the word“no”by giving choices, like how to say no politely…”Mum, I really do not want to do that right now”. Be sure that you and your partner are kind and courteous to each other. Allow for your child to establish meaningful levels of independence and responsibility and save the word“no” for the times it is really needed like when there is a safety issue. Teach as opposed to punish. Punishments may work in the moment but they do not create long lasting results. Punishment focuses on behaviour rather than internal development and discourages problem solving. The child needs to develop self-regulating responses. Asking unanswerable questions like “How many times do I have to tell you”? may only escalate frustration levels . Avoid using rewards, as they do not promote self-awareness of behaviours. Each of these suggestions will hopefully help parents find new ways to accomplish positive discipline foundations. It is a process that takes time and patience, both wonderful aspects of life that seem to be slipping away in our busy world today. Remember though, if we want to change things for the better, we must always start with the children. Gatehouse Montessori 1305 Taylor Way, West Vancouver 604-925-1437 www.gatehousemontessori.com

Mutual funds get high marks for performance Brian Bridger and Reid Baker Contributing writers

WHILE Toronto likes to hog the limelight as Canada’s financial centre, never let it be said that Vancouver can’t compete. Two Vancouver-based funds were acknowledged as among the best of the best in the west, winning an annual Fundata FundGrade A+ Rating for mutual funds. The annual FundGrade A+ Rating builds on the already popular FundGrade rating system by singling out funds that have been able to keep a consistently high FundGrade throughout the calendar year. Two high-performing Vancouver-based mutual funds demonstrated what it takes to be considered right up there with the best of the best in 2012. Pender Small Cap Opportunities Fund: This fund

had a banner year in 2012. With a calendar year return of 31.3 per cent, compared with a return of -0.5 per cent for the S&P/TSX Capped Composite Total Return Index, it’s easy to see why this fund earned a FundGrade A+ award for 2012. The fund’s impressive calendar year return ranked second among its peers in the Canadian Small/Mid Cap Equity category, which posted an average return of 5.7 per cent. Managed by David Barr, who is also Pender’s chief investment officer, the fund takes a valueinvesting approach, looking for well-managed small-cap businesses that are overlooked by the market and have the potential for significant capital appreciation. Therelativelysmallportfolio of 35 holdings includes names like QHR Technologies Inc., a healthcare technology supplier, Absolute Software Corp., a security management software provider, and Redline Communications Group Inc., a holdings company with

several subsidiaries in the communications industry. The fund also takes on only a relatively small amount of risk to achieve its impressive returns. Three-year annualized standard deviation (a measure of a fund’s volatility) is 13.0 per cent compared with an average 15.0 per cent for the category. Steadyhand Equity Fund: This fund has become one of the top performing and most consistent funds in the Canadian Focused Equity category. In 2012, the fund gained 15.6 per cent, one of the highest calendar returns in the category. Remarkably, this outperformance has come with lower-than-average volatility. Earning 8.3 per cent on a three-year average compound return basis, the fund significantly outperformed the Canadian Focused Equity average of 2.4 per cent, while limiting volatility to a standard deviation of just 10.0 per cent, much lower than the 11.6 per cent category average. In five-year performance, the

Steadyhand Equity Fund was one of only a few funds that did not lose money. It managed a gain of 1.6 per cent during the period, despite dropping more than 27 per cent in 2008. Ted Ecclestone of CGOV Asset Management manages the fund for Steadyhand. He invests in companies of all sizes, seeking profitable, well-managed businesses with a sustainable competitive advantage. The portfolio is very concentrated, with only about 20 to 25 holdings at any given time. The majority of the fund is invested in Canadian equities, with top holdings that include Toronto-Dominion Bank, Crescent Point Energy Corp., and Suncor Energy Inc. Reid Baker is manager of Analytics and Data at Fundata Canada Inc., and chairman of the Canadian Investment Funds Standards Committee.

Brian Bridger, CFA, FRM, is director of Analytics and Data at Fundata Canada Inc. and

a member of the Canadian Investment Funds Standards Committee.

NEW England is a beautiful part of the world and the birthplace of some wonderful seafood dishes. Perhaps the most famous is New England clam chowder, or “chowdah” as the locals pronounce it. The traditional preparation calls for using fresh steamer clams, but to speed things up, the following recipe substitutes canned clams and bottled clam juice, both available in the canned fish section of most supermarkets. Served with hot, fresh biscuits and with a delicious apple crisp waiting in the wings, this is a dinner to warm your heart during the worst nor’easter.

Lower Lonsdale Thai food hits the spot

Deana Lancaster Contributing writer

PERHAPS it’s the damp chill of January getting to me, but lately I’ve been dreaming of Thailand. I yearn to lie under palm fronds and drink from fresh coconuts; to swim in an opalescent ocean the colour of a robin’s egg; and to eat food made tart with kafir lime and lemongrass, spiked with peppers, and scattered with cilantro and basil leaves. A Southeast Asian vacation isn’t in the cards for me this year, so I’ll keep on dreaming. But we do have terrific Thai restaurants on the North Shore where I can eat my fill of the noodles and curries that remind me of sweet sunshine and warm trade winds. The Thai House Restaurant in Lower Lonsdale is one of them. When my cravings got bad last week we loaded up the

family and headed towards the waterfront. I can still remember when the Thai House was in a rustic two-storey wooden house one block west of its current spot. That space was better suited to a hoedown than a spicy South Asian feast. With sleek booths and tables, pretty potted plants, and warm shades of brown, this modern room feels like a better fit. We settled into a circular booth and opened the enormous menu. As well as traditional fare, the Thai House has a selection of signature creations, seafood “fusion” picks, and plenty of options featuring ingredients you might not normally find in Thailand. It all makes for an interesting, if slightly overwhelming, read. Staff is helpful, though, and if you ask for suggestions you will quickly be pointed in the right direction. Purists won’t like it, but at the Thai House dishes can be made less or more spicy, which is helpful when dining with kids. It might have slightly backfired on me, though. We started with a round of appetizers. According to the menu, deep fried calamari should have been marinated with Thai spices, but ours were bland. I suspect it was because I’d asked for the heat on all our dishes to be turned down a notch. I am a fan of lightly battered squid with tentacles included, tossed with seasoning and peppers. At Thai House, it is only the mantle, sliced into rings, heavily battered and

My favourite of our starters was the Yum Woon Sen, or traditional glass noodle salad ($12). Even made less spicy, the noodles, minced pork and plump shrimp were infused with sweet and sour flavours,

deep-fried. It’s worth noting that this dish was a big hit with our younger set. We ordered our lettuce wraps with free-range ostrich meat ($14). Low in fat, cholesterol and calories, it absorbs the flavour of the sauce and fresh basil, and adds a rich counterpoint to the

a punch of saltiness from dried shrimp, and brightness from cilantro. For our mains, we dug into boneless roasted duck, tossed with broccoli and cauliflower atop a bed of spinach ($15), and crisp, crunchy sautéed veggies under a luscious blanket of peanut sauce ($13).

But the dish that most reminded me of days spent in the tropics was the yellow curry ($15), a velvety stew of chicken, potatoes and onions in coconut cream and, the reason why it’s most popular with “farang” (Thai for westerners) — subdued spices. Alongside our main dishes, we had a bowl of fluffy steamed rice cooked in coconut milk ($9.60) for sopping up the savoury sauces. We finished by sharing a deep-fried banana with mango ice cream ($6), and cravings sated for the time being, headed home. The bill, which also included a Tiger Beer and a glass of See Ya Later Ranch Riesling, added up to $121.35, including HST.

FOUR North Vancouver dancers were among the members of a Vancouver dance troupe that won the World Championships in Cuban Salsa at the World Latin Dance Cup last month.

Local residents Daniela Ugarte, Sasha Cooke and Marissa Heaven were joined by Manuel Aguilera, who travelled all the way from Venezuela to compete with the Grupo America team at the competition put on by Albert Torres in Miami, Fla., from Dec. 12 to 15. Aguilera will remain in North Vancouver to learn English. The Vancouver-based troupe Grupo America is part of the World Dance Company and was awarded first place in the Casino Rueda-Cuban Salsa category and second place in the Bachata team category. The only group team from Canada that has ever won in this competition, Grupo America beat out hundreds of competitors from Latin America and around the world to claim the two world titles. This is the first time the team has entered the competition in four years, having entered and won first place for Casino Rueda-Cuban Salsa in 2007 and 2008. They’ve heard from some people that no one at these kinds of competitions ever believes that their multi-ethnic Canadian team can dance at as high a level as the teams from Latin America, says Erika Sanchez, the group’s manager, in the statement. The team represents nine different cultural backgrounds. Each time they win, it’s like they’re showing the world, ‘You don’t need a Hispanic last name to dance good salsa.’ It’s powerful to be able to help spread this kind of message, she says. The group was put straight through to the finals for Casino Rueda, and danced its way up from the semi-finals to the finals for Bachata. With three of the team members having just joined the group this summer, the troupe trained all summer and fall for its wins. Grupo America was started 15 years ago by artistic director and choreographer Diego Sanchez and his sister, Erika. The troupe performs dance choreographies for school groups and at special events all over B.C., and puts on a yearly event at the Shadbolt Theatre called the World Dance Festival, promoting dancing from around the world. Grupo America practises regularly at the World Dance studio in Burnaby, where Diego teaches salsa, bachata, tango and other Latin dances to beginner, intermediate, and advanced dancers every day of the week. He was called “the world’s best Cuban salsa choreographer” by Torres, an international salsa event organizer and promoter. Info: worlddanceco.com.

Wild swings of Davis Cup Ricker fills final Connell knows the drama and pressure of team tennis

GRANT Connell calls it the highlight of his career.

It was September of 1990 and Canada was taking on the Netherlands at Toronto’s National Tennis Centre with a berth in the Davis Cup’s elite World Group on the line. Through almost a century of Davis Cup play Canada had never before earned a place in the World Group but now they were three wins away from finding a place among the top 16 countries in the world. Connell, born in Regina but raised in North Vancouver, beat Paul Haarhuis in his opening singles match and then teamed up with Glen Michibata to knock off Haarhuis and Mark Koevermans in doubles play. The Netherlands won two matches as well, setting up a final-day showdown between Connell and Koevermans to decide it all. “There wasn’t a huge crowd in Toronto in the Stadium but it was pretty vocal crowd,” Connell recalls. “My parents were watching.” Connell was facing a player photo supplied who was about 30 spots higher than him in the world rankings GRANT Connell (bottom left) and his Canadian teammates show off the latest and he knew he had to take his tennis styles before an early-1990s Davis Cup tie. Connell is honorary chairman of best shot at a knockout punch Canada’s World Group tie against Spain this weekend at UBC. rather than allowing the match I liked it or not. Certainly when you had worked its way back into the World Group. to drag on. “If I didn’t win in three sets I was never big wins — and I was fortunate that I had This weekend the team will be looking to set in good enough shape to win,” he says with a couple of situations where I was able to another Canadian milestone — make it past a laugh. “So I usually won in three sets or take us into the World Group with the final the first round of the World Group. There’s win — but did I like it? I don’t know. I think a lot of pressure on these players — now lost in three.” This time, it was a win. A huge win. it was just a little bit too nerve-wracking to depended on as part of a team instead of the lone wolves of tour tennis — and Connell Connell blasted Koevermans 7-6(5), 7-6(5), really say you like it. You sort of survive it.” Connell is getting ready to serve as knows just what that pressure can do to a 6-3 and Canada was on its way to the World the honorary chairman of this weekend’s player. That’s why he has a hard time saying Group. With memories like that, Connell must Davis Cup tie at UBC’s Doug Mitchell that he “loved” his time playing for his Thunderbird Sports Centre between country even though he scored more than have really loved Davis Cup play.

WEST Vancouver native Maëlle Ricker won gold at the Snowboard FIS World Championships Saturday in Stoneham, Que., claiming the one title that had so far eluded her in her illustrious career as a snowboard cross racer. Ricker’s trophy case was already stocked with Crystal Globe season-championship awards, numerous World Cup medals and, of course, a shiny hunk of gold won on Cypress Mountain at the 2010 Olympics but before this weekend she had never earned gold at the world championships. She placed fourth three times, going all the way back to her first worlds in 1997, and won bronze at the 2005 race in Whistler but never world gold. That changed Saturday when the 34-year-old put in a dominant performance in Quebec, finishing as the fastest qualifier before carrying that speed into the six-woman elimination races and coming out on top in the final. Dominique Maltais of PetiteRiviere-St. Francois, Que., finished second to join her teammate on the podium while Norway’s Helene Olafsen won the bronze. “It’s extremely satisfying,” Ricker said of finally winning a world championship. “It’s definitely something that was missing, just not performing on the right day. It was a little bit of a thorn in my side and a big goal going into this season.” Ricker cruised through her quarter- and semi-final races See First page 34

with ease and jumped out in front in the final as well but had to push for the line to edge out her hard-charging teammate. “In the last third of the course, I definitely felt Dom on my shoulder,” said Ricker. “It was the only part of the course she was faster than me. We saw that on video all week. But I stayed calm, kept my body moving forward and beat her to the line by a board length.” Experience paid off for both Ricker and the 32-yearold Maltais as they came out on top in a final that featured two teenagers and two other racers in their 20s. “We’re the dinosaurs of the group,” said Ricker with a laugh. “But experience plays a lot in these technical races. It’s definitely something I have to use to my advantage since I don’t have youth on my side anymore. I have to be smart with my training, smart with some of my landings.” The win earned Ricker an early-bird ticket into the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. With a little more than one year to go before the Games begin, Ricker can now set her sights squarely on repeating as the Olympic champion. — with files from the Vancouver Sun

Connell ‘survived’ the pressure of Davis Cup From page 33

his share of big wins for Canada. “Davis Cup is weird — it can be the best time of your tennis year or the very worst,” says Connell. “There’s nothing worse than playing horrific in a Davis Cup match, especially at home. . . . When you’re playing for your own country it just brings a whole different slew of emotions. It can be an absolutely miserable experience or it can be the highlight of your career.” Connell recalls the plight of Chris Pridham, a former teammate who was as successful as any other Canadian on tour at the time but didn’t fare as well in the pressure-packed team competition. “He was just as good as us outside Davis Cup but he would just choke like you couldn’t imagine,” says Connell. “He’d hit balls off of every piece of his racket except the strings.” Connell, however, not only survived in Davis Cup action. He thrived. This weekend he’ll be honoured, along with Daniel Nestor and Sebastien Lareau, with Davis Cup Commitment Awards in an on-court ceremony prior to the doubles match on Saturday. The new International Tennis Federation award is presented to players

who have appeared in at least 20 Davis Cup ties in their careers. “I joke with them — I say that must have been invented by some guy in a suit who needs to kill some time on Saturday,” says Connell with a laugh. His record, though, is no joke. Connell first played a Davis Cup match in 1987 and racked up 21 ties in all. Playing singles and doubles, he won 23 matches while losing just nine. After retiring as a player he returned to Davis Cup action seven times as Canada’s team captain. “I seemed to be able to rise to the occasion for Davis Cup matches. I probably played better than my ranking said,” says Connell, adding with a laugh that he “wasn’t that good” outside of Davis Cup play. Connell, obviously not one to mince words, says his role as the honorary chairman at this weekend’s event is a purely ceremonial one. “I’m kind of like the Queen of England, I don’t really have anything to do. It’s just a title.” Even so, he’s still fired up to see Canada take on the powerhouse Spanish team despite the news that world top-10 players Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer will not be in attendance. “I wish Nadal and Ferrer were coming — obviously, as do a lot of

people — but I think people are going to be stunned at how strong the depth of the Spanish team is,” he says, adding that even without Nadal, a Canadian upset would be difficult to pull off but sweet to experience. “We’ve never won a first round match in the World Group. It doesn’t matter how you get there, it would just be great if we could do that, another milestone for Tennis Canada.” Connell, who now lives in West Vancouver and is a Realtor with Angell Hasman and Associates, has mostly stepped back from the sport but has a lot of praise for the folks in charge of the game in Canada these days. “I’m really impressed with Tennis Canada,” he says. “It’s kind of nice to be able to say that about your national body — usually you just hear complaints and criticism. Michael Downie, who is the CEO of Tennis Canada and has been for a few years now, has done just a remarkable job in taking risks and giving them time to flourish and not succumbing to the pressures of the politics of it all. He’s got some great coaches and great coaching centres. The high performance program is just fantastic, they’re doing better than they ever have. It’s hard to believe it’s only been 20 years since the thought of even getting into the World Group was a joke. Guys couldn’t beat themselves out of two levels below. It’s come a long way. It may not seem like it to the general public but tennis in Canada from a pro level, especially on the men’s side, has just gone through the roof. It’s basically been legitimized.” And the future seems even brighter. Connell marvels at the exploits of fellow North Van product Filip Peliwo who won two junior Grand Slam singles titles last year and will be hanging out with the Canadian team as a practice partner this week. “It’s sensational — it’s absolutely fantastic,” says Connell. “I couldn’t even, as a junior, get past the qualifying for a Grand Slam singles tournament. He’s just so good.”

1266 SIMPSON, Phyllis Madeline Mary 1920 - 2013 Phyllis was born March 30, 1920 in Regina to her late parents Walter and Ethel Western. A North Shore resident for over 60 years she passed away peacefully at her West Vancouver home on January 26, 2013. Predeceased by her husband David Simpson in March 2001, Phyllis is survived by her sons David (Carol) and Yale (Donna), grandsons Yale (Melanie), Michael, and Todd, step-grandson Cory Fleck, great-grandsons Luke, Campbell and Kai, and numerous nephews and nieces. Phyllis was a social worker in North Vancouver for 30 years, specializing in the care of seniors. Many will remember her for her community service. A trustee of School District 44 from 1962 through 1971, she was the first female Chairman in 1965. She was a board member of the North Vancouver Recreation Centre between 1966 and 1970, and wrote the first play to be performed at Centennial Theatre in 1966. She and her husband David were long-time members of the North Shore Community Players and the West Vancouver Yacht Club for whom she wrote many plays and skits. In her retirement she was a volunteer for the West Vancouver Library and Meals on Wheels. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Helga Simpson, Maribel Ranera and Marylou Biares who contributed so much to her happiness in recent years. A memorial service will be held at 2 pm, on Saturday, February 2, 2013, St Martin’s Church, 195 Windsor Road E, North Vancouver, BC. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation.
