Accused leader of Olympic vandals walked free

FRESH LOCAL

STRAWBERRIES

BLACK PRESS

Anti-Olympic rioters who smashed windows in downtown Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Games have mostly walked out of B.C. courts without so much as a slap on the wrist. Only a handful of the violent protesters were charged 16 months ago and even the accused ringleader has since escaped court-imposed punishment. Guillaume Joseph-Marc Beaulieu, 27, was charged with mischief over $5,000 for allegedly inciting vandalism and leading blackclad anarchists in a destructive spree through downtown Vancouver Feb. 13. Protesters used newspaper boxes as battering rams, spraypainted vehicles and clashed with police. But Crown counsel spokesman Neil McKenzie said the mischief charge against Beaulieu was stayed by prosecutors Jan. 5 after they decided there was little chance of conviction. “Although he apparently participated in the march, there was not any evidence he was personally involved in any violence or vandalism,” McKenzie said Tuesday. Nobody else was ever charged with actual vandalism from the incident, McKenzie said, adding most of the vandals who broke windows were masked and unidentifiable. Other charges mainly stemmed from clashes with police. The court outcomes may be far different with the rioters and looters charged in last week’s Stanley Cup hockey riot. Police have many more images of rioters with their faces unmasked, McKenzie said. Even so, he cautioned, photos and video may not amount to sufficient evidence by themselves for conviction and will have to be weighed carefully by first police and then Crown.

Friday, June 24, 2011 NewsLeader A17 another close call, a 10-7 win over the Nanaimo Timbermen Thursday at Queen’s Park Arena. The Salmonbellies built a 6-0 cushion in the first period and needed much of it after Nanaimo outscored the home team 5-2 in the second. The teams each scored twice in the third. Again, New West was outshot, 52-42, in the rough-and-tumble affair in which the Salmonbellies spent 43 minutes in the penalty box on 17 infractions and the Timbermen were whistled 15 times for 39 minutes. Kevin Crowley led the Salmonbellies’ attack with two goals and three assists. Gajic and Jordan McBride also scored twice.

but one, when Robbie Campbell beat him nearly six minutes into the frame. Cliff Smith matched that for the Salmonbellies less than two minutes later with a power play goal with Coquitlam two men short. Smith’s third and fourth goals of the game, 1:06 apart midway through the third, broke the game open. Ilija Gajic’s second of the game put an exclamation on the final score. Smith added two assists to his four goals to lead the Salmonbellies, while Jeff Zywicki finished the night with a goal and five assists. Gajic had a four-point night. The win came on the heels of

After taking a 3-1 lead into the second period, New West struggled in the second period, conceding 17 shots to the Adanacs while firing only 11 on Coquitlam keeper Brandon Atherton.

Housing starts forecast to increase. CMHC foresees rising luxury homes sales as well. Housing starts will increase in British Columbia this year and next, according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Housing Market Outlook report. The CMHC says that housing starts, including single-detached and multiple-family homes, are projected to total 26,400 units in 2011 and 29,000 in 2012. “The housing market outlook is similar to CMHC’s first quarter forecast, except for adjustments to the existing home price outlook,” says CMHC’s B.C. Regional Economist Carol Frketich. “Mortgage loan interest rates, which will remain low by historic standards, together with stable employment and strong population growth, will support the resale and new home markets in 2011 and 2012.”

“An increase in higher-end detached home sales in the first quarter in some areas of Greater Vancouver will push the average MLS price up 14 per cent in 2011, to $770,000,” says Robyn Adamache, Senior Market Analyst for Vancouver with the CMHC. According to a release from the CMHC, price increases recorded in Vancouver, Richmond and West Vancouver are higher than anticipated, and this will continue to contribute to higher prices and greater demand for high-end homes in those areas. “Greater Vancouver accounts for almost half of MLS sales in the province, and a rising share of single detached home sales, which tend to have higher prices, as well as an increasing proportion of sales in higher priced areas of Greater Vancouver,” says Frketich.

Downtown living

Vancouver’s SoMa beckons with Uptown by Colin Oswin

Want to join one of Vancouver’s fun and funky neighbourhoods? Developer Concord Pacific may have created the perfect place in Uptown. Located at East 12th and Kingsway, Uptown drops you right in the middle of the hip South Main area. Grant Murray, vice-president of sales with Concord Pacific, says South Main has been upgraded in a big way over the past few years. The area has seen lots of businesses move in after they left the nearby Cambie corridor during construction of the Canada Line, adding a combination of practical amenities and hipster flavour. “Main has gone a long way in upgrading itself,” he says. Uptown is a 10-floor, 102-unit building, featuring a variety of different apartment suites. Layouts range from one- or two-bedrooms with added dens or flex rooms. Suite sizes run from 560 to 955 square feet, not including balconies, and ceilings in most units are 8-foot-8. Murray says suites at Uptown

average $545 per square foot – a far cry from the $700-$800 range typically found right downtown. “It’s really great to have more room for the same buck,” he says. Murray added that the units, what he describes as “really sensible, goodsized suites,” act as a great investment for prospective landlords because tenants tend to stay longer in larger apartments. Uptown is certainly not hurting for amazing features. Outside, residents will find stunning views – especially looking downtown and toward the North Shore mountains. Every suite includes an open balcony or deck. Murray says homes on floors six to 10 have particularly spectacular views, but residents on lower floors can still get a chance to enjoy the sunset by venturing up to the building’s green

rooftop terrace. The rooftop terrace is just one of several amenity areas in the building. The others include a gym on the ground floor as well as a kitchenette/ meeting room on the second floor with a nearby play area for the kids. Another play area is available on the 10th floor. Meanwhile inside, kitchens feature high-gloss laminate cabinetry and

under-cabinet lighting. Laminate wood-look flooring is standard throughout the main living areas for a modern touch, and ensuite bathrooms include a textured tile tub and shower surround with elegant glass tile accents. Homes at Uptown start at around $269,000. For more information, visit www. moveuptown.ca or call 604-899-8800.

S

uites at Uptown average $545 per square foot, a far cry from what is typically found downtown. “It’s really great to have more room for the same buck,” says Concord Pacific’s Vice-President of Sales Grant Murray.
