Dix toughens pipeline stance E
Jane Seyd email@example.com
THE Tsleil-Waututh Nation is applauding comments made by NDP leader Adrian Dix this week opposing the proposed expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline.
“Strong leadership is about making tough decisions,” said spokesman Justin George, manager of economic development and former chief of the nation. “The majority of British Columbians oppose (the pipeline) for good reason,” he said. “Jobs (from the project) won’t come to the North Shore but the impacts will. We are left with 110 per cent of that risk with little beneﬁt.” The Tsleil-Waututh, whose North Vancouver territory is directly
Tsleil-Waututh pleased with NDP leader’s oil export comments
across Burrard Inlet from the terminus of Kinder Morgan’s existing TransMountain pipeline, have long been outspoken in their opposition to the proposal to increase the pipeline’s capacity to carry heavy oil from Alberta’s oil sands through the port for export. If approved, the pipeline expansion could dramatically increase oil tanker trafﬁc in Burrard Inlet, from about 65 tankers a year currently to more than 350 ships. The Tsleil-Waututh have been adamantly opposed to the plan, fearing potential environmental impacts on their traditional territory that has already felt the brunt of industrial port activity.
On Monday, Dix also came out against the plan. Previously, the NDP leader has been careful to stress that Kinder Morgan hasn’t yet submitted a formal proposal. But this week, Dix appeared to toughen up against the expansion, saying although he has yet to see the formal plan, as he understands it, the plan “would dramatically transform what the pipeline does” and change it into “a pipeline used to bitumen export.” Said Dix: “I don’t think the Port of Metro Vancouver . . . should become a major oil export port.” Dix’s comments on the Kinder Morgan pipeline were echoed

Thornthwaite’s riding to lose E
Strong opponents but B.C. Liberals took 59% of the vote in 2009 Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
THE eastern-most riding on the North Shore has been about as safe a seat as they come for the B.C. Liberals. The party has taken the seat with at least 50 per cent of the popular vote in every election since 1991, including incumbent candidate Jane Thornthwaite who won easily with 59 per cent of the vote in 2009. Prior to falling into Liberal hands, the North Vancouver-Seymour was solid Social Credit territory. But NDP challenger Jim Hanson is creating buzz, and the semi-revived B.C. Conservatives are ﬁelding candidate Brian Wilson. This is also the ﬁrst time in 20 years there is no Green Party candidate on the ballot while independent runner Jaime Webbe represents a new and unknowable force that could make a real difference when the polls close. In short, the otherwise safe seat could be a close race this time around. The riding of 51,685 is home to a well-to-do population with an average household income of $97,584, compared to the provincial average of $67,675, according to the 2006 census. At $681,219, the average home costs about one-third more than the provincial average and only 19 per cent of dwellings are rented, compared to the provincial average of 30 per cent. North Vancouver contains some heavy industry on the waterfront and light industry off Dollarton Highway, but the vast majority of residents are white collar. The riding is also home to Capilano University. The riding had a 61-per cent turnout for the 2009 election. The riding has four declared candidates. The following are their responses to the question “Why are you running?” printed in the order in which they were received. Jaime Webbe, Independent “I’m running because I think a number of bad habits have developed in Victoria. Current politics is running more along the interests of the NDP and the Liberals and less aligned with the interest of British Columbians. I want to demonstrate that there is another choice — a choice
that can be impartial, that can make decisions based on what’s best for the riding and what’s best for B.C., and not have to weigh that against what’s best for the party. I want to make sure that constituents are able to get an open, honest accounting of what’s going on in Victoria. I want to show what can be achieved when the dialogue between MLAs and constituents is a strong, two-way ﬂoor. I want to give the people of North Vancouver-Seymour a stronger voice in some of the key issues in the province, including economic development, the environment, the funding and allocation of resources to our schools, and to disabled persons and seniors who are currently being underserviced. “I’ve worked for the last 10 years for the World Bank and the United Nations environment program. I’m looking forward to bringing the expertise I have on environmental issues and climate change to the legislature.” Brian Wilson, B.C. Conservatives “I’m not running because I’m looking for some paycheque or pension. I’m not running becauseI’mseekingthelimelight or some other celebrity status and I’m not running for an ego trip or anything like. I’m not running so I can get my nose into the public trough. “I’m a hard-working guy. I’m a small businessman. I know what it’s like to have to make payroll. I know what it’s like to pay my employees before I pay myself. I think, out of all the candidates, I’m the only one who can say that. “I’ve got a family. I’m sick of the waste and the incompetence and the bureaucracy I see in Victoria, and I ﬁgure somebody’s got to stand up and try and change things. That’s why (I’m running). “It’s deﬁnitely time for a change and a breath of fresh air. We need some common sense in Victoria. We can’t revert back to the ’90s with the NDP driving us back to have-not status and the Liberals have had plenty of time to foul things up and they’ve done a good job of it.” Jim Hanson, B.C. New Democratic Party “I am running as the B.C. NDP candidate in North Vancouver-Seymour because I know that we can do better. We

THE mostly white-collar electoral district of North Vancouver-Seymour has been a B.C. Liberal stronghold for more than 20 years. can have a more environmentally sensitive, socially conscious and economically prudent provincial government. “I was born in Lions Gate Hospital in 1961 and raised in North Vancouver-Seymour. Ruth and I have brought up our two children in Blueridge. My spouse Ruth is a Realtor in North Vancouver. My parents live on the North Shore. I have been a self-employed lawyer for 28 years. I believe my background as a lawyer, as a businessman and as a father have equipped me to make a contribution in government. “I believe it is imperative that we ﬁnd the right balance. I remember the natural beauty of the North Shore when I was a child. I do not want anything less for our children or our grandchildren. I oppose any initiative that will transform the
Port of Vancouver into a major oil sands export facility. We need to preserve our community and ﬁnd environmentally sustainable means of growth and prosperity. I look forward to being a strong voice for North VancouverSeymour in a new and better provincial government.” Jane Thornthwaite, B.C. Liberals “I love my job and I want to continue doing my job to help the people of North VancouverSeymour. “I had a career in dietetics for 25 years and I am the proud mother of three children, one of whom is a student is at Windsor secondary. That’s the reason why I initially made my entry into politics — because I’ve always been passionate about my children’s education and I felt I could do more. In 2005,
I was elected to the North Van school board. When I wanted to make a greater difference for my community, I decided to enter provincial politics and have been the MLA for North VancouverSeymour for the past four years. “I want to ensure that the economy remains strong, the number of jobs available to our children continues to grow. That is best achieved when taxes remain low, the government’s ﬁnances are well-managed and economic development is a high priority. I believe that one of society’s highest responsibilities is to provide a quality education system for our children and we need to ensure they have meaningful employment right here in B.C. “We need more innovative solutions to protecting our environment in North Vancouver and province-wide.”
Premature to come out with a position: Thornthwaite
From page 1
Monday by North Vancouver Seymour NDP candidate Jim Hanson, who said he’d also oppose changing the Kinder Morgan terminal into “a major oil sands export facility.” “I remember the pristine beauty of the North Shore when I grew up,” said Hanson. “There’s discussion of adding 600,000 barrels of oil sands bitumen . . . that would bring too much environmental harm to North Vancouver Seymour.” Hanson said as the lawyer who represented passengers from the Queen of the North, “I know that ships can sink and under circumstances that are hard to explain. I’m not prepared to believe
any kind of maritime travel is foolproof.” Jane Thornthwaite, the incumbent Liberal MLA for the riding, pointed to the inconsistencies in Dix’s pipeline position. “Initially he said they were going to wait until the project was properly announced,” she said. Thornthwaite added she still thinks waiting is the best approach. “To just come out and say we don’t approve it or we don’t want it or we don’t like it without having criteria, it will scare away future investment,” she said. Thornthwaite said the Liberal position on the pipeline is that the pipeline shouldn’t be approved unless environmental safeguards are in place, First Nations are consulted and B.C. sees economic beneﬁts from the plan.
“At this particular point we don’t even have a proposal to consider,” she said. “It would be premature to come out with a position. I think that’s what distinguishes us from the NDP.” Kathryn Harrison, a professor of political science at the University of British Columbia, said politically, Dix’s change in position is “potentially important in pulling back to the NDP voters who might have been inclined to vote Green. “Up until now Adrian Dix has walked a very careful line,” she said. “It was quite a big deal that he said what he did.” Harrison said while environmental issues in general have not ﬁgured prominently in this campaign, “pipelines and tankers are quite a prominent issue in voters’ minds.”

Sprague drops out, Molyneaux steps in Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
B.C. Conservative candidate Jeff Sprague has dropped out of the 2013 election race only days after the writ dropping. Jeff Sprague informed the party over the weekend that he would step down. The party quickly appointed Allan Molyneaux, a retired property appraiser and president of the party’s North-Vancouver-Lonsdale constituency association, as the new candidate for the riding. When asked about the allegations reported in other media that Sprague was caught drunkdriving, NorthVancouver RCMP issued the following statement: “North Vancouver RCMP can conﬁrm that on April 18, at approximately 3 p.m. at St. Davids and East Second Street, North Vancouver
Allan Molyneaux RCMP did enter into an impaired-driving investigation as reported by a citizen and where an alleged vehicle struck two other vehicles and left the scene,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong, North Vancouver RCMP spokesman. “We did attend and subsequently arrested the driver and no criminal charges are laid at this time but it is an ongoing

investigation. Subsequently, the identity of the driver is not being released at this time.” Sprague, who works in private security and fronts a heavy metal cover band, did not respond to several requests for comment. Similarly, no one at the B.C. Conservatives’ campaign ofﬁce responded to interview requests. Molyneaux said he was not part of the committee that screened candidates, and the news of Sprague stepping down came as a shock. He only learned about the police investigation through social media, he added. Molyneaux is taking up the mantle, running on a ﬁscally conservative platform. “I believe in smaller, more responsible government. I believe in balanced budgets and I believe governments are spending too much money. I’m concerned about the debt, especially on the next generation. I believe it’s going to be harmful for them,” he said. “I’ve been around for a little while and my sense of history suggests to me that the Liberal party will not be elected this time out. That’s why I joined the Conservative Party . . . to provide a free enterprise alternative,” he said.

Greener pastures A
DRIAN Dix and his party have been running ahead of the B.C. Liberals in the opinion polls for so long, that much of his election strategy has been merely to avoid errors — and therefore to avoid controversy. So it was unusual to ﬁnd him on Monday altering the “we’ll-studythat” response to awkward questions, a response that sounds like action, but commits to nothing. Nevertheless, when he released his party’s environmental policy in Kamloops, he not only reafﬁrmed the NDP’s opposition to the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline — or at least the agreement to abide by a federal environmental assessment — but appeared to side with those who oppose the twinning of the Kinder Morgan pipeline to Vancouver. Dix acknowledged that a formal
proposal has yet to be made by the company, but said, “Radically transforming the Port of Vancouver into a major oilsands export facility is not a good idea. It’s too much of a risk to our environment and our economy.” Dix’s phrasing about risk to the environment was likely calculated to stop some of the vote bleed to the Green Party, that is running an aggressive campaign on Vancouver Island. While much has been made of his words, there is no real commitment to action other than the “made-in-B.C” environmental assessment. It is now the B.C. Liberals who can occupy the territory previously staked out by the NDP: that this is a process that cannot be judged until the application is received. Sometimes it’s difﬁcult to spot the differences between the parties.
Dog saves man from careless driver Dear Editor: On Tuesday, April 9 my guide dog and I were nearly hit by a careless driver on the southeast corner of Lynn Valley Road and Mountain Highway. We were just starting to cross, with the right of way, when a pickup rounded the corner without slowing. Luckily my guide dog froze which is a signal to me to stop walking immediately. I wish I could say that this was a rare event. Unfortunately near misses are all too common for the visually impaired and blind. I am especially fortunate to have a guide dog who is on a constant vigil to keep me safe. Visually impaired and blind persons relying on canes are even more vulnerable. I am extremely frustrated and angry at the selﬁsh attitude of drivers. Too many drivers are either
not paying attention or are so self-important that they show no regard for anyone else on the road. I wonder how many pedestrians need to be injured and killed before drivers start to understand they are operating lethal weapons. As such, they need to be fully attentive and always courteous to pedestrians and other drivers. Too many have never learned that driving is a privilege and not a right. Once again I am so grateful for having my guide dog. Otherwise I believe the outcome would have been much worse for me on April 9. I also want to thank the three good citizens who stopped to make sure that my guide dog and I were OK. Angus MacKinnon West Vancouver
Dogwalk creates non-compliance
NEWS photo Mike Wakeﬁeld
ANGUS MacKinnon and his guide dog, Hayden, who saved him from a careless driver.
Dear Editor: I am responding to the April 12 “Mailbox” item concerning observance (or lack thereof) of dogwalking bylaws. We are responsible dog owners who diligently attempt to follow signage, pick up after our dog and so on. That said, the design of the Dundarave Seawalk dog walking area is so impractical as to virtually ensure non-observance. The “split” design prevents dog owners from keeping their dogs on leash or under control. It also makes it difﬁcult if not impossible for owners to pick up after their
dogs — and from the condition of the dog lane it is apparent that few if any do. The design also puts dogs at risk of straying onto the railroad track, with no ability for the owner to intervene. If the city wishes to enhance the level of legal compliance, I’d urge them to take another look at the design of the walk, hopefully with an eye to putting dog walkers and their dogs on the same side of the fence. If separation is required, make that from the other users of the Seawalk instead of the dogs. Perry L. Edwards, North Vancouver
Speaking for the party or not Dear Editor: Regarding your April 19 story, Yamamoto Faces Tough Fight: party afﬁliations aside, reading the statements proved interesting. The Communist partystatementreadclearly.After a ﬁrst reading of the article, it struck me that the “I’s” and the “we’s” deserved to be counted. Mr. Cariou used three “I’s.” Mr. Conroy used seven “I’s,” one “me” and four “we’s.” He was less clear in his statement. Ms. Yamamoto tied his “I” count. She used seven along with six “we’s.” There is much vagueness in her statement. Finally, Mr. Keating used three “I’s,” one “my” and two “we’s.” He lists past accomplishments with an air of pride. Imagine — one candidate missed an opportunity to present himself to North Shore News readers ! The Conservative candidate is either too busy or regards the opportunity as unimportant. He might have delegated the task to someone. Sheila Ward North Vancouver

Clark should clear the air on SNC-Lavalin
“ Just like the wind and water when you’re on a boat, thoughts will change. Thoughts are no different than anything else .” — Jeff Bridges
BUFFETED by swiftchanging daily events, I deferred my unﬁnished column about the challenges of mental illness in adults and adjusted my sails to concentrate on other thoughts blowing in the wind. Just two days into the provincial election campaign there are questions: Details absent, Christy Clark says she has a plan to eliminate the debt the Liberals have doubled since 2001. Her eraser is a plan that, at best, any new provincial government can only guarantee will be around for four years. Without new taxes, Clark’s eggs are in the “trillion-dollar” liqueﬁednatural-gas basket. Trillion or not, the LNG basket is already being chased by so many countries that the commodity price has dropped to record lows over the past three years. More attainable perhaps, NDP leader Adrian Dix says
Elizabeth James he will freeze ferry fares until an audit has revealed areas of unwise spending. Needless to say, Clark jumped all over that with a claim that frozen fares would cause ferry maintenance to go wanting. Before deciding who is closest to the truth, could someone answer the arithmetic questions I’ve had on my mind for months? B.C. Ferries is operating way below capacity. Revenues and ridership have declined in lock-step with frequent fare increases. Although fewer passengers had the unintended beneﬁt of reducing one- and two-sailing waits, what would happen if fares were reduced by, say, $25-$30 per one-way trip? What price point would persuade passengers to
return ridership numbers to 80-90 per cent capacity on the main routes? If that were to happen, would the corporation derive enough revenue to cover operating costs? Has anyone done the math? Next: the slow-moving saga of SNC-Lavalin Inc. Four weeks short of a May 2 shareholders’ meeting, Clark’s transition mentor Gwyn Morgan resigned as chairman of SNC-Lavalin on Apr. 4. You might have thought that was a routine business development — until April 17, when the multi-lateral World Bank announced “the longest debarment period that has ever been agreed to in a World Bank settlement.” The blockbuster news release concerned the “debarment of SNC-Lavalin Inc — in addition to more than 100 afﬁliates — for a period of 10 years following the company’s misconduct in relation to the Padma Multipurpose Bridge Project in Bangladesh. . . .” Regularly referred to as Canada’s engineering giant, SNC-Lavalin already had enough on its plate as it tried to recover its reputation following the Feb. 11 charges laid against former CEO

contracts? Is it to be business as usual, or will they perform hefty due diligence? I ask because, 13 years too late and regardless of who forms the next government, British Columbians still want the “open and transparent” government they were promised in 2001.

In light of the World Bank decision and with the Duhaime charges yet to be heard in court, and with Ben Aissa still under arrest in Switzerland and in the knowledge that RCMP investigations are continuing in Canada: Why has Clark not made time during her campaign stops to issue a public statement as to the extent of Morgan’s relationship to her outgoing Liberal administration?

Man jailed for Lions Gate Hospital assault
Previously jailed for another hospital assault Jane Seyd email@example.com
A North Vancouver man who assaulted a female patient in Lions Gate Hospital just 11 days after he got out of jail for a similar previous crime at Royal Columbian Hospital has been sent to jail for 10 months. Aaron Edward Abernathy, 31, was recently handed the sentence after pleading guilty to the assault, which happened July 15, 2012 in a quiet room of the psychiatric unit of Lions Gate Hospital. Abernathy was already in the quiet room, when a woman — who was a stranger to him — walked in, according to court documents. He offered the woman a back massage, which she refused, then invited her to sit on a couch with him. He then got up and turned off the lights, hugged the woman and tried to kiss her. She pushed him away. When the woman tried to leave the room, Abernathy blocked the door, telling her he “needed a friend and wanted another hug.” Abernathy then left the room and the woman reported what had happened to nurses. Abernathy got in a taxi outside the hospital but was taken back there when the cabbie realized he wasn’t the patient the taxi was supposed to pick up. Abernathy was arrested at the hospital. The incident took place just 11 days after Abernathy got out of jail for a previous assault
at Royal Columbian Hospital that happened in December 2011. The victim in that case had been admitted to hospital with pelvic pain and was lying naked under a blanket in an examination room when Abernathy walked in, shut the door and began kissing her neck and touching her body under the blanket. The woman later told reporters the assault left her “frozen in fear” and angry. Abernathy eventually pled guilty to assault in that case and was handed an eight-month jail sentence on April 26 last year. Less than three months later, however, he was out of jail and had assaulted the woman at Lions Gate. Abernathy committed both crimes while high on crystal methamphetamine. According to one psychiatric report, Abernathy admitted that crystal meth “makes him hypersexual and this is in fact one of the main reasons that he uses the drug.” Under the inﬂuence of the drug, Abernathy has repeatedly engaged in inappropriate sexual behaviour, according to the report. The psychiatrist wrote that Abernathy would likely continue to exhibit bizarre behaviour when in a drug-induced psychosis. Abernathy has a lengthy criminal history, including convictions for assault, forcible entry and several incidents of committing indecent acts in public. In addition to the jail term, Challenger placed him on three years probation, with orders to stay away from all hospitals except for medical emergencies or with his probation ofﬁcer’s consent. The judge also banned him from all alcohol and drugs. The judge said Abernathy “can choose to use methamphetamine or he can choose to be in jail. This kind of conduct cannot be tolerated.”
These feet were made for swift kicks
From page 7
’ceptin’ if politicians need a swift kick where it counts. Anyway — since the X-rays showed changes too minor to account for the discomfort, the doc decided a bone scan was in order. I expected a long wait, akin to those for patients needing an MRI. Not so. Just four mornings later I was given a painless injection of radioactive “tracer” and sent home to drink copious amounts of water
before an afternoon scan. After that, my job was to lie under the scanner for 45 minutes as it photographed my fully-clothed self. That was it. The scan doesn’t see you off to Hawaii and you don’t light up a room when you walk into it. But, no, it isn’t painful. All I do now is await the verdict — thinking thoughts about mental illness and the madness of B.C. politics. firstname.lastname@example.org

Streamkeepers augment McDonald Creek
New pond offers refuge to young salmon, trout Brent Richter email@example.com
COHO salmon and cutthroat trout have a new home in West Vancouver, thanks to the latest effort by the West Vancouver Streamkeepers. The group is inviting the community to join them at a grand opening ceremony for the Memorial Park rearing pond this Saturday. After decades of development in West Vancouver, McDonald Creek changed from a relatively shallow, slow moving stream that was prone to ﬂooding to a fast-moving channel, making it much harder for juvenile salmon to survive the year in fresh water they need before heading to sea. By digging out a new pond in Memorial Park and feeding it with fresh water via an intake pipe from the creek, the fry will have a “comfortable place to stay” and the creek has another chance at becoming hearty ﬁsh habitat. “Its not enhancing nature, it’s mitigating what we’ve already done,” said Bill McAllister, West Vancouver Streamkeepers’ treasurer and one of the project leads. The group approached the District of West Vancouver last year with the faint hope they could get district permission. “I thought we’d get thrown out of (their) ofﬁce, coming and saying ‘We want to rip up your park and put in salmon habitat,’” said John Barker, Streamkeepers co-ordinator. But it turned out to be something of an elegant solution, as the district was looking for a way to revitalize the increasingly boggy and overgrown park. Barker and McAllister won the approval of the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the surrounding neighbourhood, and the See Ponds page 11

WV ﬁreﬁghters up skills WHEN someone is hurt every single second counts, and when you dial 9-1-1 the ﬁrst person on scene is usually a ﬁreﬁghter.
But before Monday night, ﬁreﬁghters in West Vancouver couldn’t use an epinephrine autoinjector (EpiPen) or even use blood pressure monitors. But that is going to change. Council unanimously endorsed the use of EpiPens and blood pressure monitoring devices by the municipality’s ﬁreﬁghters after a presentation from Fire Chief Jim Cook and assistant chief Martin Leduc. EpiPens are used to curb the effects someone may suffer from severe allergies. Many of those with severe allergies, such as to peanuts, carry an EpiPen. Use of them is quite simple with a quick jab and injection. During the presentation Leduc and Cook said nearly 50 per cent of the department’s calls are for ﬁrst aid and not ﬁres. In 2012, they had 1,811 calls, nearly 300 of which were from chest pains. But under the previous more restrictive policy they weren’t legally allowed to use an EpiPen, an over-thecounter needle which can be bought from a pharmacy or online. The ﬁre department already has budget for the devices and is now ordering them as soon as possible. Council asked Cook and Leduc to come back to council with more recommendations to improve the skill set of the ﬁre department. — Sam Smith
Pond already working but ofﬁcial opening Saturday From page 10 group got to work on designs and soliciting the roughly $100,000 it would cost to complete the pond. The district contributed only staff time to the project. So far, the pond is already yielding more than Barker and McAllister had even hoped. During a recent visit to inspect the pond for invertebrate and ﬁsh life, Barker tossed in a ﬁsh trap and returned the next day. “I just started to lift the trap and I saw a ﬂash and thought, ‘Oh good, we got a ﬁsh or two in there.’ I lifted it up and the whole thing is thrashing ﬁsh,” he said. “We ended up with 11 coho smolts . . . and six cutthroat trout and to us, is just outstanding. That’s just over the top,” Barker said, beaming. “Every year a few coho would come in but not a lot, and so this will hopefully help boost the stock and stabilize and enhance the run. That’s really our purpose,” Barker said. Saturday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony starts at 11:30 a.m. at Memorial Park, opposite the library.

Top-dressed lawn a real beauty Dig Deep
Todd Major LONG green grass blades pierce the surface of the grey bits of grit across the lawn as dew shimmers everywhere.
That’s what a good lawn top-dressing should look like. Unfortunately, properly done lawn top-dressing is a lost practice, some might say art form. Unlike old-school lawn maintenance, modern lawn maintenance relies on continual input of disconnected techniques and low yield but expensive products. Each spring the annual clatter of the lawn aerator begins in earnest in lawns everywhere but top-dressing noise is nowhere to be heard. There are now even companies that drop off enthusiastic but naive young people into subdivisions who go door to door selling lawn aeration or dethatching. Such distasteful practices combined with a lack of understanding lead many people to think that lawn aeration done as a stand-alone practice is healthy for grass; nothing could be farther from the truth. Each time an aerator pulls a core of grass out of the lawn, it leaves behind a hole in the surface of the lawn. Aeration holes are cored into the lawn to improve oxygen ﬂow into the lawn’s root zone. Those holes are also intended to be ﬁlled with some type of medium that either provides food or changes the lawn’s soil structure. If the aeration holes are not ﬁlled with medium the grass roots are exposed to air pruning and stress while the sides of the aeration holes slowly collapse causing surface
undulations. Lawn aeration and topdressing are interrelated and generally inseparable practices. Both practices were originally developed to provide a means to restructure the lawn’s root zone and soil type to achieve improved user performance. The aeration cores that are spit out onto the lawn’s surface are supposed to be drag-matted to break them up or raked off the lawn to allow top-dressing application. But somewhere along the way lawn aeration became a stand-alone spring ritual sold to consumers as the most valuable spring lawn maintenance option. Lawn aeration is done to relieve soil compaction and soil aeration or to change the soil’s texture and structure but those changes can only occur if a soil medium is added to the aeration holes to implement the change. There are various types of mediums used in lawn top-dressing including sand, manure, topsoil and compost. Sand is used to improve drainage and provide ﬁrmness to weak turf surfaces. Only coarse, angular sand should be used for lawn top-dressing. Angular sand does not hold water very well, unlike round sand that holds a microﬁne ﬁlm of water around its surface, ultimately increasing water retention in the lawn. Manure has antibiotic and nutritional beneﬁts when used as a lawn top-dress medium. Topsoil, as long as it is a sandbased top soil, is used to ﬁll in low spots or add bulk volume. Compost is also a good top-dressing medium and it provides the same beneﬁts of manure and topsoil. Top-dressing can be applied on its own or as a followup practice to aeration and dethatching operations. Old-schoolers will tell you that top-dressing the lawn used to be an important annual lawn maintenance practice that was done to feed, weed and improve the lawn’s usability. But with the advent of larger residential lawns and the massive lawns found in parks and golf courses, top-dressing has become too

EARLY-MORNING dew clings to a blade of grass. Applying topsoil or manure to your lawn can improve its presentation, writes horticulturist Todd Major. labour intensive and expensive. Hence, the modern shift to lawn maintenance involving aeration only and an increased reliance on chemical fertilizers. In general, top-dressing should be applied 1 to 2.5 centimetres (half to one inch) thick all over the lawn as needed. Spread, scatter and rake the top-dressing across the lawn’s surface to ﬁll in undulations and aeration holes. Some areas of the lawn may need more soil, some areas may need less. The lawn will quickly grow up and through the topdressing, developing new roots
and increased vigour. If there is a need to apply more than the recommended thickness, then apply some grass seed to allow new grass to grow in to cover the thickest layers of topdressing. Top-dressing can be applied to the lawn anytime of year between early March and late October. Top-dressing helps decompose thatch while providing a layer of soil for improved root growth. Topdressing will not kill perennial weeds. A well done top-dressing installation using a properly prescribed soil medium is
a thing of beauty and done regularly, it can drastically improve the lawn’s presentation and durability. But in the end, if all of the lawn aeration, topdressing, dethatching, liming and fertilizing that is done year after year does not improve your lawn’s performance and presentation does not work, you can always install artiﬁcial turf to solve the problem. Todd Major is a journeyman horticulturist and chief horticulture instructor at the UBC Botanical Garden. For advice contact him at stmajor@ shaw. ca.

THIS is a simple but very effective idea. It’s great for outdoor table parties this spring and can be assembled in minutes. The nice thing about these illuminated lights is that the glass protects the ﬂame from the breeze. Look for patterned tissue paper on store shelves and at your local craft store. It’s nice to pick up a few different patterns that can be coordinated together. Materials: 2-3 packages of patterned tissue paper Clear cellophane tape Scissors Clear, glass cylinders or vases (varying heights and shapes) Miniature tea lights I’ve seen this idea done with other kinds of papers as well. Leftover pretty wallpaper and wrapping papers work beautifully as outside covers. Simply measure out the amount of paper required for each of your glass cylinders and cut accordingly. Fasten the paper to the outside of the cylinder with your clear tape. Place a small tea light inside the cylinder and illuminate when your guests arrive. Another cute idea for an outdoor votive is to use some simple ﬂowers from your garden or local nursery. Pansies and primulas work well for this idea.

One device will not meet all your needs
TIME to go back to my inbox and answer a few questions from readers and provide another Netﬂix recommendation.
Question: Your column on tablets vs. eReaders was of particular interest because I have both a Nexus 7 and the original Kindle. I use the Kindle whenever I’m going somewhere that I know I’ll have to wait, such as a doctor’s ofﬁce, or taking my wife shopping, etc., as I have a selection of e-books on it, and it ﬁts nicely into my inside jacket pocket. My Nexus 7 is the same size, so it ﬁts into my jacket pocket as well, but is much heavier than the Kindle. The output from the Nexus is prettier, and no doubt I could transfer all my Kindle stuff onto it, but why bother. Both have Wi-Fi capability, but few places I try to use it provide Wi-Fi access, so that feature is only useful at home where I have a Wi-Fi router. But when I’m at home there’s my desktop and laptop for Internet access on bigger

screens, so my tablet and eReader are rarely used here. Thought this might interest some of your older readers (I’m 89) who are wondering what to get. Keep up your good work. —Don, via email Answer: Thanks, Don. I like your letter because it illustrates a few things. First, no one is too old for technology. The fact that you have a Nexus 7 tablet, which is as hipster as it gets among geeks, is very cool, and owning an original Kindle makes you an early adopter. Secondly, you describe
well how it’s still hard for one device to meet all our computing and consumption needs. Tablets are great, but they yet don’t replace laptops for getting real work done on a sustained basis. We’re getting closer to that goal of the one all-purpose device with attempts like Windows 8 (and likely Apple in the near future). The sooner the better for both our wallets and landﬁlls, but for now we remain multi-device creatures, with more gadgets (next up: smart watches) on the way. Question: I pay my ISP $50/ month for my Internet. Since I started using Netﬂix I’ve received several automated voice messages from my ISP telling me that I’m using too much bandwidth, the implication being that my ISP wants me to buy more bandwidth. Bandwidth is free and does not cost my ISP anything. Furthermore bandwidth cannot be ﬁlled up completely. It can become saturated and slow down but it can never be See Check page 20

Architectural design Cedar compliments any architectural design – from turn-of-thecentury to contemporary. It celebrates our native culture too. Colours Unﬁnished cedar has richly textured grain and warm colours. Easy ﬁnishing Because cedar is virtually pitch and resin free, the wood easily accepts a range of ﬁnishes, from ﬁne oils and stains, to solid coatings and paint. Usages Enhance the beauty of your home with cedar siding, decking, moulding,
windows, doors, posts, beams, paneling, outdoor projects, interiors and saunas. Aroma Cedar’s unique aroma comes from naturally occurring thujaplicins in its heartwood. These compounds resist moisture and are toxic to decay-causing fungi and insects and preserve the wood to give it long lasting appeal. Acoustic insulation Acoustic properties of cedar walls and ceilings provide sound insulation necessary to quieten rooms. Surround yourself in the beauty of cedar.
Western Red Cedar “Rustic character, tight knot.” Available lengths: 8’, 10’, 12’, 16’
Solid Fence Panel 6’x8’
Other styles available including matching gates

Check your Internet plan for monthly limits From page 17 “full.” CRTC recently penalized my ISP for overcharging. Is this a new scheme from Canadian ISPs to work around the CRTC decision? —Graham, via email Answer: Graham has raised a bunch of issues which are too technical for me to delve into, but what he does underscore is that using services like Netﬂix eats into the monthly bandwidth caps imposed by your Internet service provider, or ISP. Theoretically, providers like Shaw and Telus have policies to charge overage fees for exceeding your monthly limit, just as cellphone providers will charge you for exceeding your monthly minutes for talk or data plan. In practice, I’ve never heard of anyone being charged for going over their Internet limits. (If you have been charged, had your service discontinued because of bandwidth use or simply been hassled, I’d like to hear about it.) Of course, most of us aren’t even aware we have bandwidth caps or understand what that means, and as Graham suggests, bandwidth is not a straightforward concept like water running through

E-READERS like the Kindle are small and light, and allow users to take the library wherever they go by holding more than 1,000 books. a pipe. A ﬁnal point is that in the past couple of years providers like Telus and Shaw have upped their caps signiﬁcantly, even doubling some plans. Unless you’re watching online video for hours a day, you’re probably safe.
Netﬂix pick: House of Cards (U.K. version). If you enjoyed Netﬂix’s original series House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey, you’ll have a great time with the BBC original that inspired it. Set in the 1990s and in a very different political culture
than Washington, D.C., it’s tweedier, sharper and darker than its American descendant. Barry Link is editor of the Vancouver Courier newspaper and a geek enthusiast. Email him at email@example.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!

Help child to take on responsibility Parenting Today Kathy Lynn
Eight-year old Graydon is penitent. He just totally trashed the living room in a ﬁt of pique and now is sorry. He broke a lamp, threw the sofa cushions on the ﬂoor and spilled a plant. The reason is that his soccer team just lost their game and they are out of the playoffs. What are his parents to do? Well, he has apologized and recognized the inappropriateness of his behaviour. He also had a reason for his actions. Should his parents accept his apology, understand the reason and move on or should he still have to take responsibility for his actions? His parents need to accept his apology, talk about better ways to cope with disappointment and have him take responsibility for the mess and breakage in the living room. It is important not to
excuse his behaviour, even when he has a reason for acting up. There is a difference between being apologetic after an action and wishing that you had behaved differently and taking responsibility for the outcomes of the situation. First, Graydon’s parents accept the apology. They listen to him while he talks about what he did and how he feels about it and are supportive and sympathetic. After all, we can all relate to losing a game, job or opportunity and wanting to lash out. The good news is that he went after inanimate objects and not his sister. The next step is to work with him to develop strategies for what he can do the next time he is frustrated or angry. How can he work it out without being destructive? A run around the block, a set of jumping jacks or simply counting to 10 are some ideas. But, after all this, he still has a problem. The living room is a mess, a lamp is broken and he is responsible. It’s important that he take responsibility. Maybe he works hard with his mom to clean up the room and then uses his allowance to pay for the lamp. Now, I don’t imagine he would have enough money to actually buy a lamp but if he contributes that would be fair enough.

GIVE kids a chance to take on responsibility, such as leaving their lunch by the door, so parents don’t have to “save” them. Always saying they are sorry and walking away allows kids to shirk responsibility. When young children can simply apologize and then walk away they soon learn that penitence can replace responsibility. And when they can make excuses and blame something else for their behaviour they stop worrying about how they act and react. They may become young men and women who, after behaving badly during a riot
make a seemingly heartfelt apology online followed by the excuses. “I was drunk” or “I got caught up in the moment.” They will believe that is enough, because since they were little that was all they needed to do, apologize and offer an excuse. Kids will also learn to avoid responsibility if parents routinely save them. For the
third time this week, 10-yearold Melissa has forgotten her lunch. Her dad slips out of a morning meeting to go home, get the lunch and deliver it to the school. You can almost guarantee that he won’t be the only parent at the ofﬁce dropping off forgotten lunches, gym shorts or homework projects. Melissa is being taught
that she doesn’t need to take responsibility for her own stuff because Dad will always save her. Or as they say, “whenever you see a child who always forgets, she has a parent who always remembers.” It’s not fair to suddenly decide you’re not going to save your child. After all, if you’ve been doing it all along, they have the right to expect you to continue. So, talk to her. Tell Melissa that she is now old enough to remember her lunch, help her develop a system (like putting it at the door ﬁrst thing in the morning) to help her remember and then back away. And don’t worry. If she forgets lunch, she will not starve. Other kids will share. Mind you, they will probably give her the food they like the least so odds are she will actually have a meal rich in vegetables and totally lacking in sugar. If we want our children to grow up to be responsible citizens, it starts now. Let them take responsibility and they will learn that is simply normal and expected.

There is a total of 16 pieces of art featured in my grad art exhibit. All of them surround the theme of fantasy. Most of them come in a series. What type of art do you most like to work on? I love to work on surreal and fantasy art because they are very ﬂexible and creative, unlike real-life sketches, which are boring and still. You can use imagination to create surreal and fantasy art. Since it’s all created by imagination, these types of art can be regarded as an escape from everyday life. How long did it take you to get good at doing that type of art? It all depends on how you would deﬁne
Is there a type of art you don’t yet know how to do but would like to learn how to do? Yes, expressionism and pointillism (because both use a lot of technique and various vibrant colors).
Brieﬂy describe your recent grad art project
Since art is one of my greatest passions, I would say all art is enjoyable for me. And no they are not difﬁcult. I enjoyed the process of making each and every piece.
How long did it take you to get good at doing that type of art?
NEWS photos Mike
Is that type of artwork difﬁcult to do?
that have been taken. Editing the photos and even deciding how large or small you are going to print them, for example, really makes quite a difference to the photographs.
I DEBBIE PA
“good.” I believe that one can never be absolutely perfect at doing art, thus I am not sure how to answer the question. If I really have to answer this question, then I would have to say that it took me approximately 16 years to get to the level I am now.
EY ALIA RIDL
Mulgrave School Grad IB Art Exhibit showcases student artists
What do you like best about being an artist?
Brieﬂy describe your recent grad art project
Being original and creating something that represents myself.
Some of my favourite projects that were featured in the recent grad art exhibition came from my “Fear” series, which was a branch from my overall theme of “Darkness”. Through these projects, I wanted to instill the use of darkness to emphasize and contrast with light.
Can anyone be an artist? Yes, I believe as long as you are passionate about art, then nothing can stop you from being an artist. Everything around us is a type of art; even industrialized products, architectural buildings and the technology we use is all about art. Dramas, movies and music are all types of art, and people who specialize in those types of arts can be called artists too.

What type of art do you most like to work on? My favourite type of art to work with is photography. I enjoy working on photography projects because there are many different possibilities that can come from the images
I believe many people have differing opinions on what a beautiful or intriguing photograph looks like. However, I think that my photography skills began to develop over the past year. Therefore, it has taken quite some time for my skills to improve and turn into something I am proud of. Is that type of artwork difﬁcult to do? Taking a picture itself is not a difﬁcult task, however taking a picture that provokes emotion and intrigue to its viewers is much harder to complete. What do you like best about being an artist? The best thing about being an artist is that you truly get the chance to be creative and explore your passions through a vast array of art styles. Can anyone be an artist? Yes, anyone can be an artist, and luckily there are many different types and styles to explore, so ﬁnding one that you enjoy and that you are passionate about should not be an arduous task.

Plenty of styles to explore at dance camp It’s a familiar scenario for many parents: forking over big bucks for your kids’ dance lessons only to discover they don’t seem to like it. While it may be that they just don’t like to dance, it could be they just don’t like a particular style of dance. This summer, Seymour Dance in North Vancouver is offering a junior summer sampler program for kids ages six to 12. The course will feature sample classes of every style of dance course the studio offers during its regular season, including ballet, tap, Irish, jazz, and hip hop. Owner Sonia Ellis says it’s a good way for kids to try different styles of dance offered in their age group. Recently, the studio added breakdancing to its lineup of classes, but Ellis says the most popular classes are still ballet and jazz. NEWS photo Cindy Goodman
During the regular season, September to June, Seymour Dance offers programs for kids ages three to 18. There are also adult classes. Ellis explains that the threeand four-year-olds start with ballet.

As kids get older, Ellis says it’s common for them to want to branch out into other styles of dance, and she says hip hop and lyrical are popular styles for the older set. Lyrical dance is a cross between ballet and jazz, and features slower music. “It’s more about emotion and expressing the meaning behind the song through dance,” says Ellis. The students perform in a year-end show at Centennial Theatre as part of the regular season (not the summer camps), and this year they will be performing an interpretation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on June 9. The performance will feature students from all the different classes of dance at the studio, and it is open to the public. Ellis says she believes dance is suited to any kid, they don’t even have to be naturally co-ordinated or outgoing.
“It’s more of a creative movement/ballet base, so it’s getting them familiar with music and moving around the room and then a bit of technique in there

too,” she says, adding ballet is the best base for all styles of dance because “it gives you the technique and the body awareness.”
“There are so many different styles that there’s a style out there for everybody,” she adds. — ROSALIND DUANE

“There be monsters.” Tabitha stood over the map, a wild look in her eyes as her ﬁngers drummed on that purple splotch just north of Lake Anatoga. Rufus was frozen, his fork halfway between his plate and his open mouth. “I told you that’s what it said,” Tabitha crowed, her voice wavering between a shout and a whisper. “And as sure as Cassandra’s broccoli tastes like last week’s dog food, that’s what it says.”
Tabitha told us about the monsters on the very ﬁrst day in the arts and crafts room, but nobody really believed her. “There’s a map to them,” she promised us while she slopped bright purple paint on papier mache. “Evil seaweed, leaping sea bass and the biggest, meanest jelly ﬁsh you’ve ever seen. Sailors made the map, like inﬁnity years ago.” “There’s no such thing as monsters,” Rufus said, carefully applying a coat of grey paint to his piñata. “Then how come you wouldn’t sleep in Cabin 17?” Tabitha asked.
I didn’t want to talk to anybody that ﬁrst day, but when I came back from the bathroom to the arts and crafts room I saw Fres sitting in my chair. “What are you doing?” I asked. She jumped up and went back to her own chair. “I just thought if you put strings there it would look more like a guitar,” she said quietly. I sat down and looked at my piece. It didn’t look so much like a nose anymore. “Thanks,” I said. Fres smiled. On the other side of the table Tabitha and Rufus were still arguing. in Cabin 17.”
“You’re just mad because I saw the spectre
“You said it was a ghost,” Tabitha accused. “Same thing!” “No it isn’t!” Tabitha looked at me. There was purple paint on her nose and one of her pigtails was undone. “Your name’s Henry, right?”
“Ghosts are different,” he snapped.
“No they aren’t!”
“Ghosts and spectres are the same thing, right?”
“Yes they are!”
“Spectres have slime, ghosts don’t,” I told her.
I tried to make my piñata look like a guitar, but no matter what I did it just kept looking like a big nose. I asked to go to the bathroom and thought about how I got stuck in this place with no TV. I’d had all my video games

Baseball ‘draft’ serves as backdrop for beer tasting Andy Prest firstname.lastname@example.org
NERD alert: I am the manager of multiple fantasy baseball teams. Just before the season kicked off I participated in a marathon, auction-style draft for one of my teams and decided it was the perfect opportunity to sample a few local beers. Little did I know how necessary those suds would become as my stats-geek night unfolded. The three beers up to bat were all India-style ales from Victoria, a city that
that’s my pint
has been enjoying its craft ales since long before the microbrew bandwagon started rolling
across the rest of the country. Let’s take a swig and a swing and see if we can touch all the bases. Opening round: Lighthouse Brewing Company’s Beacon India Pale Ale Early in fantasy drafts I want to go as safe as possible, getting guys I know will produce good numbers on a consistent basis. Lighthouse’s Beacon IPA basically ﬁts that same description: a tasty, solid, inoffensive beer that won’t win any MVP awards but won’t ever get suspended for punching an umpire. More of an English style
bitter than a rugged West Coast IPA, Beacon may not be daring enough for hardcore beer freaks but with subtle hops and a malt ﬂavour that holds its own, it won’t ever leave you disappointed. Sipping this sensible beer kept me focused on the game, helping me make safe pickups like powerful ﬁrst baseman Prince Fielder and ever-underrated three-bagger Adrian Beltre. In draft terms, I’d call the Beacon a solid fourth-rounder. Middle round: Phillips Brewing Company’s Hoperation Tripel Cross Belgian IPA
Here’s where the whole night went sideways. I was following my well-crafted draft script perfectly until my Internet connection dropped for just a few seconds. When it kicked back in I realized to my horror that my computer had way overbid for third baseman Pablo Sandoval, a.k.a. the Kung Fu Panda, a decent player but one I would never normally touch because he often gets hurt. In between chat screen F-Bombs I decided I needed something very, very strong

Prick the ﬂesh of the chicken all over with a fork. Using a sharp knife, cut shallow slashes in the ﬂesh (this will allow the marinade to penetrate). Place chicken
in a large, shallow glass baking dish. In a glass bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except the vegetable oil and cilantro and whisk to combine well. Pour the yogurt mixture over the chicken and rub it into the ﬂesh, turning chicken several times. Cover and refrigerate
eight hours or overnight. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place the chicken on a rack in a roasting pan, brush with vegetable oil and bake, turning once, for 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced near a bone. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro just before serving. Makes four to six servings.
Greek Yogurt Pancakes Be sure to use thick Greek yogurt for this recipe; regular yogurt will make the batter too thin. 1½ cups vanilla ﬂavoured Greek yogurt 1½ cups all-purpose ﬂour 1½ tsp baking powder ¾ tsp baking soda ¼ tsp salt 1 egg ¾ cup milk In a medium bowl, stir together the yogurt, egg and milk. In a separate large bowl, mix together the ﬂour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Pour the yogurt mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.

Dark ale doesn’t provide enough bold ﬂavour From page 31 to calm me down. That’s when I popped the top on the Hoperation, appreciating the fact that the label featured a plane that was literally dropping bombs. They appear to actually be hop bombs, which is an understandable choice considering what lies inside the bottle. A super hoppy IPA hybrid with the Belgian backbone adding unique ﬂavour to the mix. Just what I needed. This one deﬁnitely isn’t for the faint of heart though.
If you don’t want your beer to slap you in the face a bit you might want to steer clear. Also, it’s 7.3 per cent alcohol. In baseball draft terms, it’s either a ﬁrst-round home run for those who can handle the heat or, for the risk averse, a loose cannon whose arm will probably fall off after two weeks. Final round: Vancouver Island Brewing’s Absolute Darkness India Dark Ale The draft was winding down and so was I. VIB’s Absolute Darkness ﬁnished off the evening and with India Dark
Ale on the label I was expecting a beautiful black beverage with some surprising ﬂavour. Well, score that one-for-two. The beer did pour jet black and had a very nice hop aroma but once it hit the mouth there wasn’t a lot of pop. Roasted malt ﬂavour dominated and that whiff of hops is nothing more than that: a whiff. If you’re looking for a bit of a boozy stout then this, at 6.5 per cent, is a nice dark substitute. But if it’s bold ﬂavour you’re after, ﬁnd another vessel to India. A common fantasy baseball
mantra is “don’t pay for saves.” Closers are a volatile bunch
and you can always ﬁnd a replacement if yours don’t pan out. That sort of sums up the Absolute. If it’s late in the game, you’re in need of a dark ale and the Absolute is what’s
left on the board, go ahead and grab it. Save your big bucks, however, for something with a little more upside. In baseball draft terms it’s a late-round stash.

Product Hailed by Doctors as the Solution for Back Pain
Doctor developed decompression belt has been called the solution for back pain. Dr. Michael Ho announced he is giving 50% off for one week only. Due to the Spring rush, each household is limited to only 2 belts.
By Marc Charron Health and Lifestyle
Back pain affects 8 out of 10 people. It can also rob you of your happiness, where getting out of bed becomes a painful reminder of your bad back. While pills provide temporary relief, the condition can reoccur, because pills mask the symptoms and do not target the cause of the pain. Other treatments cost thousands of dollars or have substantial health risks. “That’s why most people end up “living” with their bad back,” says Dr. Michael Ho. Dr. Michael Ho is a doctor with over 20 years of clinical experience specializing in treating the cause of chronic back pain, including Degenerative Disc Disease, Sciatic Nerve Pain, Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis and Herniated / Bulging discs. His belief is to treat the cause of the problem so that patients get long term relief, earning him international recognition for his patient care and expertise. No Belt
Dr. Ho has developed a back supporting decompression belt that can be used at home, allowing you to help relieve your back pain, while saving time and money. Dr. Ho’s brand new Decompression Belt is endorsed by medical professionals and customers that have suffered with long-term, chronic back pain. "I have used many modalities to treat my patients, but nothing is as effective as the decompression belt. To effectively treat someone with back pain, the patient must receive treatment everyday for 6 - 8 weeks. People cannot afford the time or money to visit the doctor everyday. I developed this belt because patients need a device they can use at home,” says Dr. Ho. Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt expands to help decompress the spine to provide support and help relieve the pain. The belt will help relieve your pain in as little as 20 minutes, even if you’ve suffered with back pain for many years. And you can even wear the belt while doing activities.
Spinal x-ray analysis indicates DR-HO’S Decompression Belt increased spinal disc space by 53%, and improved spinal alignment by 132%.
50% OFF Sale
“Many people have back pain due to spinal disc compression. This can result in back pain, which if left untreated, can lead to more serious conditions.”
Dr. Michael Ho consults with a patient suffering with herniated disc, degenerated disc and over 10 years of back pain.
include a free Instant Reusable Heat Pad! Use the heat pad to help relieve your back pain safely without the use of drugs. You don’t have to live with your back pain any longer.”

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
North Van trio ﬁghts for national title on home soil
NORTH Van’s Alex Comsia soars for a header in a game during the CONCACAF U17 men’s soccer championships in Panama. Comsia helped Canada ﬁnish third and earn a berth in this fall’s FIFA U17 World Cup.
Comsia World Cup bound
North Van defender a rock for Canada’s U17 team Andy Prest email@example.com
Scan this page with the Layar app to view photos and video highlights of Canada’s run to bronze at the CONCACAF U17 championships.
IF there’s one thing that North Vancouver’s Alex Comsia learned during his team’s amazing run through the CONCACAF U17 men’s soccer championships last week it’s that no game is ever over until that ﬁnal whistle blows. Comsia, 16, played every minute of the tournament in central defence for Team Canada as they pulled off a pair of incredible victories to earn bronze medals at the tournament and, more importantly, a berth in this fall’s U17 FIFA World Cup to be held in the United Arab Emirates. “When I was a kid you dream about going to the World Cup,” Comsia, who got his start in the Lynn Valley Soccer Association and now plays in the Vancouver Whitecaps youth system, told the North Shore News after returning home from Panama where the pressurepacked regional championships were held. “Now that it’s a reality, it still hasn’t sunk in, to be honest.” Canada opened the tournament with a 1-1 draw against Costa Rica and a 2-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago, earning a berth in the quarterﬁnals and one shot at glory — with four World Cup berths on the line each quarterﬁnal became a ﬁerce battle for a spot in the big show. Canada drew Jamaica and it didn’t look good early. The
Jamaicans went up 1-0 just ﬁve minutes into the game and held a 2-1 advantage at halftime. The Canadian boys, however, remained conﬁdent. “We never stopped thinking that we could get a result,” said Comsia. “We kept pushing and pushing and eventually we got the goal and the momentum. We tied the game and from then I thought that we weren’t going to lose.” Canada evened the score in the 60th minute, then ripped in two more goals in a ﬁve-minute stretch to take a commanding 4-2 lead with 10 minutes left. From there it was all defence until that glorious ﬁnal whistle. “As soon as the ﬁnal whistle blew I fell to the ground,” said Comsia. “We’ve been preparing for this for a year. Since (last) April, our ﬁrst camp in Italy, that’s the moment we’ve been preparing for. That was just amazing to ﬁnally achieve it. . . . That was an amazing second half. The front guys, credit to them, they put the ball in the back of the net. The whole team defended. This was the one game where you have no second chance, the one game you have to win to go to the World Cup.” The main job was now accomplished but there was still a tournament to ﬁnish and the Canadians found themselves matched up against the host Panamanians — and their vocal home crowd — in the semiﬁnals. It was a taste of Central American soccer madness that most youth players from Canada couldn’t even dream of. “We were up against a hostile crowd of 10,000-plus people,” said Comsia. “I’ve never experienced something like that before. We couldn’t even hear ourselves on the ﬁeld. Our coach was yelling at us, we were yelling at each other but it didn’t work. We couldn’t hear each other, we couldn’t communicate which, in a way, I think See Canada page 44

MacDONALD, Alastair John
Alastair John MacDonald, born January 22, 1922 in Winnipeg, MB, passed away peacefully after three weeks at North Shore Hospice with family at his side, at ‘the 11th hour’ on April 14, 2013. He chose to join his beloved wife Hazel (nee Moore) on what was their 68th Wedding Anniversary, and a time of day as well, beﬁtting a Canadian Veteran. Al was predeceased by his parents, Frank and Peggy and his brothers, Chuck and Hugh MacDonald. For the past 10 years of progressive dementia and reduced mobility, he was able to live in the comfort of his own home with full-time care from his ‘guardian angels on earth’, particularly, with much love and devotion from his care-giver Agnes Clavero. His remarkable life’s journey is fresh in the minds and hearts of his daughters, and sons-in-law, Heather (Rob Arseneault), Jan (Howard Petrook) and Frankie (Barry Black), his grandchildren, Hayley, Justin, Shonna, Meghan, Jeff and Sandy, and his great-grandchildren, Chiara, Levi, Nate, Joshua and Mia. Al joined the R.C.A.F. in 1942, serving overseas at a Yorkshire air base to 1945, surviving a ditching in the North Sea, which made him a member of The Goldﬁsh Club. He met Hazel in July, 1944 who was also with the R.C.A.F. as a “W-Deb”. They grew up living just blocks from each other in Winnipeg, and attended the same schools, but it took a world war for their paths to cross for the ﬁrst time, They married April 14, 1945 in Chelsea, England, honeymooning in Torquay and Devon. Back in Canada, Al returned to work with the Singer’s Sewing Machine Co. in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, then Kamloops, B.C. followed by a long and varied career with Pepsi Canada and Pepsi-Co International. This job took him across Canada, southern Africa and New York State. On his retirement to West Vancouver, B.C., he co-owned Hal-Mac Enterprises, an Executive Placement Agency, with his wife Hazel overseeing the Temporary placement side of the business. Al sold his interest in the agency, taking up a fourth career as a home furnishings manufacturer’s sales representative for B.C. and Alberta. After retiring a second time at the age of 72, Al and Hazel now had more time for their world travels. They were just as happy at home as they were with their bags packed for another adventure. Whether his family and friends called him Al, Dad, or Mac, we all experienced his unfailing generosity, genuine interest in and support through our trials and tribulations. We will never forget his oft-times ‘interesting’ sense of humour, his gentle smile, optimism, political activism, friendship and his overall ‘joie de vie’. Our family wishes to thank the staff of North Shore Hospice for their care and compassion for Dad’s last days, and for us. In lieu of ﬂowers, a donation to the Vancouver Children’s Hospital Oncology Dept., in his name, would touch his heart. Later this month, a private memorial gathering will be held in his home.

Beatrice Marjorie Vittery July 4, 1917-April 20, 2013
Beatrice Marjorie Vittery (nee Rankin), born July 4, 1917, passed away peacefully in North Vancouver at the North Shore Hospice on April 20, 2013. Lovingly remembered by her children Joan Mitchell (Brian), and Alan. Noni was special to her grandchildren Nikki, Jennifer, Alanna and Alistair and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother Robert (Grace); sister Emma (Henry) Wackenroder, and brother Gordon (Eileen) of California. Bea was “Mum” to many special friends, especially Maureen Woodrow, Gayle Guest and Anne Nkomo. Thank you to Erlinda Quadrante for her overwhelming devotion in caring for our mother. Bea was born in Nokomis, Saskatchewan to William Rankin of Edinburgh, Scotland and Mary Jane Rankin (Greaves), of York, Ontario. Her parents were homesteaders and wheat farmers then came to Vancouver in 1920. After spending the wartime years in the Queen Charlotte Islands, Vancouver Island and Vancouver, she and husband Ralph (RCAF-Marine Section) settled in North Vancouver in 1947 where she helped with the family business, Vittery Marine Services. She enjoyed a wonderful family life skiing on Hollyburn, Grouse and Seymour Mountains as well as other areas in BC, especially Rossland. Spring, summer and fall, or any day with wind, was spent sailing from West Vancouver Yacht Club on the ‘Ivanhoe’ and later, the ‘Anna Marie’ around the coastal waters. Inbetween, whenever the opportunity allowed, she travelled the oceans of the world to anywhere a freighter or cruise ship would take her. She never lost the travel bug and had her ﬁnal voyage to Alaska in 2007 on her 90th birthday. She was a devoted member of the Signus Club of Vancouver, a charity that helped the families of children afﬂicted with cerebral palsy. She struggled with many medical issues in the past eight years but, as usual, she took it in her stride, never complaining. As with the bright colours that she loved, she brightened everyone’s world with happiness as she sailed through her life as perfect as we all knew her. As per Bea’s request, there will be no service. Private arrangements will be announced at a later date following cremation. Donations gratefully accepted in her memory to BC Cancer Agency, BC Heart & Stroke Foundation, Lion’s Gate Hospital Foundation or any charity of your choice.

FUNT, Bruce Lionel Jan 20, 1924 - Apr 18, 2013 After years of relatively good health, Lionel died peacefully and quickly at St. Paul’s Hospital of a heart attack. Survived by his loving wife of 15 years, Donna; sons and daughters-in-law Brian and Karen, Gordon and Julie, and Warren and Karen; seven grandchildren Christopher, Samantha, Elliot, Malcolm, Graham, Emilie and Miranda, sisters-in-law Marina, Elizabeth and Doris, brother-in-law Stewart and many nephews and nieces. Also sadly missed by Donna’s family: Bill and Catherine, Kathy and Troy, five grandchildren and six greatgrandchildren. Raised in Halifax, Lionel was proud of his Eastern Canadian roots. He earned his B.Sc. from Dalhousie University. In 1947, he married Frances Russell, and was awarded his Ph.D. in Chemistry from McGill University in 1949. He became a professor and later Dean of Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba. In 1968, he moved to Vancouver with Frances and their three sons to be the first Dean of Science at Simon Fraser University, where he remained as a chemistry professor until his retirement in 1989. With Frances’ guidance, Lionel was able to achieve much. After 50 happy years of marriage, she predeceased him in 1997. A brilliant research scientist, inventor, and an absent -minded professor, Lionel radiated unconditional love to all of his extended family. To the end of his life, he was unfailingly cheerful, enthusiastically supportive, intellectually curious and dignified. He had many interests and pastimes, including travelling, boating, gardening, curling and reading. Lionel was a beloved father, husband, grandpa, uncle and friend. He will be dearly missed.
