Recycling, fees come to more electric gear Depots now take back old power tools, sports gear JEFF NAGEL BLACK PRESS

H

undreds of additional electrical products – from drills and other power tools to sports equipment such as treadmills – can now be returned to B.C. depots for recycling. The July 1 expansion of the ElectroRecycle program first launched last fall means consumers are also now paying an extra recycling fee when they buy new products that are covered. A laser level sold in B.C. now costs 75 cents more, while the fees are $2.75 for sewing machines and $4.25 for exercise machines. Those charges, which fund the industry stewardship program, are in addition to fees on many other small appliances that kicked in last October, adding $2.25 to the cost of new toasters and blenders, for example, or an extra $10 for a large microwave oven. “With these new product categories, ElectroRecycle will help divert even more electrical products from disposal to resource recovery,” Recycling Council of B.C. CEO

COMPETITIVE CANOES - Canoe racing goes back generations in Coast Salish tradition. This weekend (July 7-8) you can get a glimpse of the competitive paddle races at the Whey-AhWichen Canoe Festival at Cates Park hosted by the Tsleil-Waututh Nation. Along with the canoe races, the festival will include displays, Aboriginal arts and crafts booths, and cash-only food concession that will feature barbecued salmon. The festival takes place Saturday (July 7) from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday (July 8) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Submitted photos

Brock Macdonald said. “The expanded program will also help municipalities spend less on managing waste.” Whether the fees charged are separately itemized on a bill or are included in a product’s price depends on the retailer. Formerly known as Unplugged, the expanded program now covers virtually all consumer electrical products with a power plug or battery that weren’t already being collected by depots through other programs. It’s the latest in a growing set of takeback programs in B.C. where manufacturers and retailers are required by the province to set up depots to collect and recycle old items, while consumers pay recycling fees to cover the costs. Electrical products dropped off at ElectroRecyle drop-off locations are sent to processors within Canada and separated into different materials for recycling. The non-profit program is run by the Canadian Electrical Stewardship Association in partnership with B.C.-based Product Care Association on a long-term costrecovery basis.

Oil pipeline application opens attack window for critics Kinder Morgan seeks approval of tolls for customers JEFF NAGEL BLACK PRESS

O

pponents of Kinder Morgan’s plan to twin its oil pipeline through the Lower Mainland intend to use regulatory hearings over the business terms with oil customers as an arena to raise broader concerns. Kinder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson on Friday announced the company has applied to the National Energy Board for approval of the tolls and terms for nine major shippers who have signed on to 20-year secure contracts. Hearings for the toll application will proceed ahead of later NEB hearings on the actual expansion project, for which the company expects to file an NEB application in late 2013. Anderson stressed the initial application has nothing to do with the construction or the 1,150-kilometre route of the $4-billion oil pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, which would be the subject of the 2013 application after extensive study, community consultation and design work. But NDP associate natural resources critic Kennedy Stewart said the first set of hearings offer an early chance for the public to have their say. The federal NDP will register as intervenors, the Burnaby-Douglas MP said, adding he expects local cities, interest groups and land owners may do so as well. “It is the first time we’re going to start getting details about this pipeline,” he said. “It’s such a massive project we have to get involved at all stages.” Stewart said intervenors could ask the NEB to increase the toll rates Kinder Morgan will charge its customers to provide extra insurance coverage against a pipeline breach or oil tanker spill. Likewise, he said, a surcharge on tolls could cover payments to First Nations. The hearings could also shed light on the future of Chevron’s Burnaby refinery, which critics say could be

threatened if it has to pay more for crude oil carried by Kinder Morgan to match the prices the oil fetches in Asia. Chevron is not among the nine firms Kinder Morgan plans to guarantee secure access to 80 per cent of the expansion volume, but it is seeking priority access to the pipeline’s remaining capacity, ahead of other spot buyers. Stewart said he wants to see if Chevron registers as an intervenor to fight Kinder Morgan’s toll application. The loss of the Burnaby refinery would drive Lower Mainland gas prices sharply higher, he warned, because Chevron could no longer supply its stations at lower cost, which other outlets are currently forced to match. “Chevron’s already being outbid by foreign customers for the existing oil coming down the pipeline,” Stewart TANKER TRAFFIC - An oil tanker passes through the Second Narrows said. loaded with oil from the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

A new riding for the North Shore? North Vancouver riding could be split in two and paired with North Burnaby before the next federal election TODD COYNE STAFF REPORTER

T

he North Shore could get a third MP when British Columbia adds six more ridings to its roster before the next federal election. In a report published last week, the non-partisan Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for B.C. released its proposal for redrawing the province’s electoral map to make B.C.’s 36 existing seats into the 42 required for the next election. The commission recommended that one of those new seats should be created by splitting the North Vancouver riding in two and marrying its eastern half with North Burnaby, across the Burrard Inlet. Provisionally titled North Burnaby-Seymour, the new riding would comprise all of the District of North Vancouver east of Lynn Creek and all of Burnaby north of the Lougheed Highway. B.C. boundaries commission chair Hon. Judge John Hall told The Outlook in a phone interview Tuesday that because of its sizable population growth since 2002, the North Shore was deemed ripe for redrawing by the commission. “We try to get somewhere around 105,000 [people] in each federal electoral district,� Hall said, adding that both the West VancouverSunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country riding and the North Vancouver riding have ballooned beyond that threshold. “And you don’t really have enough for three ridings on the North Shore but you have enough for sort of two and a half, so Burnaby was the one that would fit in with that and give you 100,000 to 105,000,� Hall said. The report also recommends separating Powell River and Texada Island from the West Vancouver-

s u m m e r s a vi ngs Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country riding and adding it to Vancouver Island North in an effort to bring the approximately 135,000-person West Van seat in line with the federal standards. Hall said that while the amalgamation of part of North Vancouver with North Burnaby is not ideal from a community standpoint, residents from both communities will have a chance to be heard on the issue come September. “You don’t necessarily always want to do that if you can avoid it but we’ve got a number of places in the province where we’ve had to go across water boundaries and inlets,� Hall said, adding that North Vancouver will host the province’s first public input session on the electoral redraw at 7 p.m. on September 10 at the North Vancouver Holiday Inn. Residents of West Vancouver are also welcome to attend that session, as well as one the following night in Squamish for their own potential riding redraw. Of the six proposed new ridings for B.C., five are in the Lower Mainland and one is in the Nanaimo-Cowichan area of Vancouver Island. Like the other provinces, B.C.’s boundaries commission does an electoral boundary redraw study every 10 years and presents its findings to parliament for consideration.

“F

or the infamy,” jokes Nancy Olewiler, when asked why she ever wanted to be board chair at TransLink, always one of the hottest political hot potatoes in the province. But even after 18 months at the helm of Metro Vancouver’s transportation authority during one of its most publicly scrutinized periods in history, Olewiler says there’s still nowhere else she’d rather be.

The day the kids lost their freedom

I remember it all, clear as day. I was 11. It was summer, 1982. We were playing kick-the-can. The old soup can was on the boulevard, and though our street could get pretty busy with traffic, we kids had all fanned out, tucked behind bushes, under parked cars and the bold ones among us found refuge in empty garbage cans and behind the mean old widow’s fence. I laid down in the bed of a pickup truck parked in a neighbour’s driveway. I swear I can still remember that last breath of air, sweet and clear. The taste of freedom, is how I see CHRIS BRYAN » GUEST COLUMNIST it now. The silence of hiding children was broke by that first call. BARB-RA! BAAAARRR-BRA! TIME TO COME IN! From my vantage point I saw her, crouched behind the Kissicks’ rosebush. Her shoulders sagged, she groaned and stood up. AND-REW! AAAAN-DREW! DIN-NER! LET’S GO! The chorus grew as other mothers chimed in, voices blanketing sidewalks and lawns. When my mom hollered, I dragged my heels. That’s how I remember it. Wandered through the cedars out front of the Phillips’ house, leaning on one and looking up at the branches, thinking I’d climb it sometime soon. But I didn’t. See, that was the last day. The last day we played kick the can, red rover, British Bulldog—or street hockey until 9 p.m. two blocks down. It was our last day of real freedom. An experience that, years later, all of us would wistfully remember and long for. A kind of feeling that kids who grew up after 1982 would never truly understand. They would grow up in a helmeted world. Hermetically sealed inside their cars, their TV rooms, their community centres. For us, the shift that happened that day was about more than just growing up. We lost our innocence, but so too did our world. Perhaps I should have seen the warning signs a summer earlier, when I was delivering The Province newspaper at 5 a.m. Don’t ask me how I dragged myself out of bed at that age. I would stumble into my Converse high tops, rugby pants, baggy shirt and strap on my Swatch, wet my hand under the sink and push my bangs off my brow and walk in the gathering gloom up Dempsey, Nottingham and Coleman all the way to my friend’s house on McNair. I’d go around back to his bedroom and open the sliding glass door, then jump on him with my knees so we could get going, unbundle the papers and wander the neighbourhood with our sacks. Every once in a while we’d see a little school photo on the cover of the paper. A little boy, or girl, gone missing. Maybe those pictures were the sign of change to come. Or perhaps it was that day I went to another friend’s house after school, and watched as his mom locked up the liquor cabinet, pocketed the key, and stood in front of the mirror wearing the new outfit she’d wear to work the next day, her first day on the job in 14 years. Others followed in her wake, carried by changing times, and for the first time the houses were quiet during the day and the daycares filled up. Within months the Block Watch signs came down and we’d all signed up for piano lessons. Or was it CNN, which debuted two years earlier and showed us that the world was going to hell, country by country, 24 hours a day, so keep your loved ones close. It’s a different world now. I see that. But I’d like to find a way back. Or somewhere completely new, where there’s a little more trust and a little less fear. Let’s do a pilot project. Even for just one day. Open up the screen door, give our kids a nudge. “Go play!” —Chris Bryan is the editor of the Burnaby Newsleader

TransLink may crank up park-and-ride rates Possible end to free parking lots on the North Shore and beyond for transit users JEFF NAGEL BLACK PRESS

T

ransLink may make commuters pay to use many of its free park-and-rides and may raise rates at other paid parking lots at rapid transit stations in response to overcrowding. The strategy is to spur more drivers who can catch a bus from close to their home to do so rather than driving to a park-and-ride, where they board SkyTrain, an express bus or the West Coast Express. Detractors worry the plan will backfire and push too many of those motorists to ditch transit and drive all the way to work instead.

TransLink corporate communications manager Jason Martin gave no details on which lots might see fees imposed or raised, adding a study is still underway and TransLink’s board of directors will vote on any final plan. “Pricing is certainly one way to help manage demand,” he said. “We want to encourage people on the frequent transit network or areas that are wellserved to use transit to get to SkyTrain.” Park-and-rides offer convenience for motorists who don’t want to wait for a bus near their home to get to a transit hub before transferring to an express bus or rapid transit, Martin said, but added that convenience may come at a price. “A nominal fee at park-and-ride still represents savings for somebody who might otherwise still be driving downtown to pay for a parking spot.” The parking congestion problem partly reflects ris-

SHARP VISION. SHARP MINDS

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in people 55 and older, but did you know they could also contribute to an increased risk for cognitive decline and dementia? In a study of 625 elderly patients conducted by the University of Michigan, those with poor vision who did not receive proper eye care were 9 times more at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and 5 times more at risk for some form of cognitive impairment. In contrast, those participants with good vision had a 63% reduced risk of developing dementia. Sharp vision and sharp mind seem to go hand-in-hand. Protect both by scheduling a comprehensive eye health examination at Hollyburn Eye Clinic today.

ing transit ridership – more commuters than TransLink expected are using the South Surrey park-and-ride to catch a bus to the Canada Line at Bridgeport. The South Surrey lot is one of 10 free ones across the region and it routinely overflows despite being recently expanded to 481 stalls. TransLink has said it will begin towing cars illegally parked there June 25. “It’s pretty chaotic,” said Fraser Institute economist Joel Wood, who commutes using the lot and said TransLink is right to reassess the region’s park-and-ride fees to reduce congestion. “The obvious solution to replacing the kind of firstcome, first-served approach we have now to allocating stalls is to charge for them,” Wood said. “If you put a price in, you’ll want to set the price so the parking lot fills up but there’s no longer cars over continued, PAGE 11

continued from, PAGE 10 flowing.” Other free park-and-rides include lots in Ladner, Tsawwassen, Walnut Grove in Langley, Sexsmith in Richmond; Phibbs exchange, Park Royal mall, Westmount and Gleneagles on the North Shore. Some pay lots already charge hefty fees. An Impark-run lot at King George station in Surrey costs $6 to park for the day, prompting many motorists heading there to park for free a couple blocks away along Fraser Highway instead. Others are much cheaper – the public parkade at Bridgeport Station, operated by the casino there in partnership with TransLink, charges Canada Line users $2.50 a day, while the Scott Road SkyTrain station park-and-ride charges $3. Wood said TransLink needs to guard against unintended impacts, like commuters

parking on nearby residential streets to save money. The move will also bring inequities, especially where some motorists heading to a transit hub have less ability to take transit without driving than others. Many commuters criticized the planned higher fees online, saying they will defeat the purpose of park-and-rides and discourage transit use. Twitter user @BuckyHermit called TransLink planners “clueless” for thinking fees will encourage people to take a bus to stations. “Um. If they had a choice, they would!” TransLink says the capital cost of building park-and-rides ranges from $3,000 to $16,000 per space, while the operating costs are $200 to $800 per year. newsroom@northshoreoutlook.com

In Squamish, adventure begins right outside your door.

Fifteen years ago, I moved to Squamish from Vancouver with my husband and our one-year-old son. The reasons we chose Squamish were the affordability, the small-town feel with the close proximity to Vancouver. I wanted a different sort of environment to raise my family, but was still a big city girl at heart. My daughter was born a year after we moved here and we settled into the community. It was then I realized what a brilliant choice we had made. The friendly neighbourhoods, lack of crime, close proximity to recreation, good schools and so many more like-minded young families reinforced our decision move on a daily basis.

enjoying an unparalleled quantity of outdoor activities. World-class mountain biking, windsurfing, rock climbing and backcountry skiing are just a few of the things that draw our many buyers here.

Seven years ago, I began selling Real Estate in Squamish. The same reasons that attracted me hold true today. I specialize in buyers, offering expert local market knowledge. From start to finish, I will be there with you every step of the way. Through assisting your preapproval with a mortgage broker, or working with your bank; to showing homes that work for you, through negotiation of a successful offer and finally the completion process and move in day, I will be your expert advisor.

Picture yourself as part of this vibrant community, where adventure begins right outside your door. Where miles of beautiful trails await, for riding, hiking or just meandering. Where dozens of pristine lakes and tumbling waterfalls are there for summer play and recreation.

So, welcome to Squamish... a picturesque little town nestled between coastal mountains and pacific waters. Home to a rapidly growing population of outdoor enthusiasts who are

Our median price for an average detached home is $480,000 as compared to $980,000 for North Vancouver. Newcomers are welcomed and delighted to find a strong and growing community which celebrates diversity but never loses its small-town values.

Our 1927 soccer greats Part 2: The tour of a lifetime for Don Archibald and Dick Williams

LEN CORBEN » COLUMNIST

Part 1 RECAP: North Van soccer players, Don Archibald (second from left in the first row of the photo on the cover) and Dick Williams, were selected to play for Canada on a lengthy tour of New Zealand in 1927. Archibald, the youngest player at 20, and Dick Williams, one of the oldest at 29, were born in Nova Scotia and Wales respectively but moved here as youths with their parents. Now, at the peak of the Roaring Twenties, they were about to embark not only on the trip of a lifetime but also on the most successful tour in the annals of Canadian soccer.

I

n selecting Don Archibald as the starting centre forward for the national touring team to New Zealand in 1927, Canadian soccer officials were taking a bold step indeed. You see, Archibald was really still an unproven entity in top-class company. Yes, he had been the goal-scoring star for North Van High, winners of the Vancouver & District championship in 1923 and 1924, plus the unofficial B.C. title-holders of 1924. And, yes, he continued his netbending ways for North Van Excelsiors, the 1924 junior Mainland Cup victors, and with North Van Ex-High which topped the Vancouver senior men’s third division

in 1925-26 and then did the same in the second division in 1926-27. A meticulously kept scrapbook found at the North Van Archives belonging to Roy King, Ex-High goalkeeper who began his 31-year North Van teaching career in 1926, contains records for the ’26-27 season, proving Archibald was a first division talent in waiting. Archibald suited up for 30 of 33 games and tallied no less than 46 of the team’s 93 goals, a mind-boggling 49.5 percent. Fred Obee, Bert Russell and Art Stevenson followed, well back with 11, 10 and nine. Nevertheless, the fact was, Archibald had not yet played in the first division, certainly a step up from any-

www.northshoreoutlook.com thing he’d experienced on a regular basis. Meanwhile, adding the veteran Dick Williams to the touring team as a utility player who could play on either the half or forward lines was acknowledged as a good move. One news clipping in Archibald’s scrapbook, also found at the Archives, even notes, “Williams was well recommended and it was pointed out in his favor that he possessed considerable experience as an ambulance man and might come in handy as an assistant manager or trainer.” Arriving in Auckland on May 23, 1927, after a 19-day voyage on the RMS Niagara, the Canadians played the first two of their 23 matches versus New Zealand opposition in New Plymouth against Taranaki F.C. on May 25 in front of 4,000 fans and then against Wanganui F.C. in Wanganui three days later with 3,000 in attendance. To say that Archibald was an instant success after reaching New Zealand would be an understatement as he blasted home four goals in each game as Canada won 10-1 and 7-0. Following two more shutout victories on the North Island, 6-0 and 2-0 – the latter witnessed by Governor General Sir Charles Fergusson, Prime Minister Gordon Coates and 12,000 fans – the Canadians continued south, crossing to the South Island to meet Marlborough in Blenheim on June 3. It turned out to be the most one-sided game of the tour, 11-0, as Archibald again led with three goals and Williams potted his first. Williams also tallied in a 5-0 triumph over host Nelson in the next game. Everywhere they went the Canadians were received like royalty, attending receptions before or after every game. After Archibald was held off the scoresheet for three straight games, including a 1-0 loss to Westland F.C. in Greymouth on June 15 (one of only two Canadian defeats on the entire tour), he connected for three goals in a 6-0 victory over Canterbury on June 18 in Christchurch before a throng of 8,000. Four days later Archibald got two in a 6-2 win over Otago F.C. in Dunedin, the fifth time he’d racked up multiple goals in a game. With 11 games completed, it was now almost halfway through the tour and Archibald had scored 16 of the 49 goals that I could account for (among Canada’s total of 60) through scrapbook clippings and various newspaper sources. You could certainly now say his selection to the team was obviously the right move. Four test matches with the New Zealand national team were still to come however. The first, with 10,000 looking on at Carisbrook Ground in Dunedin on June 25, ended in a tie: New Zealand 2 and North Van… err, Canada 2. NZ led 1-0 at the half. The Auckland Evening Post explained what happened next. “Two minutes after resuming, Archibald got clean away, drew the goal-keeper well out, and beat him, but in trying to dribble through the open goal-mouth struck the upright. Anderson [NZ fullback] rushed in to defend and drove the ball unexplicably [sic] into the goal net.” Later, with NZ ahead 2-1, “Archibald and

Williams advanced together… the goalkeeper stopped the shot, but Williams secured again and brought the scores even.” Archibald scored Canada’s first goal in a 2-1 test match victory in Invercargill on July 2. New Zealand took the third test 1-0 on July 9 in Wellington to even the series at one win, one loss and one tie apiece. Some 23,000 turned up on July 23 to see the final test match at Carlaw Park

Vacation Inspection Report

July 14-15, 2012 The Shipyards SATURDAY 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm in Auckland, a 4-1 Canadian victory thanks in large part to two more Archibald goals. Three first-half goals by Archibald in a 6-2 win over Auckland F.C. in the last of 23 games on July 30 – producing an overall record of 20 wins, two losses and one draw – gave the North Van lad a total of 34 of Canada’s 116 goals. Dave Turner was next with 16. But our boy wasn’t finished. En route home, the team won games in the Fiji Islands, 2-1, and Honolulu, 9-0. Archibald scored six in the latter. Before dispersing to more mundane lives, the team defeated New Westminster Royals 6-2 on Aug. 27 at Con Jones (later Callister) Park. Of course Archibald scored another two. Archibald later played for first division North Shore United, setting several goal-scoring records. A clerk with Dodwell and Co. steamship agents and later an accountant with Burrard Dry Dock and The Vancouver Sun, he married Maxine Glanville about 1938 and they lived in Vancouver until he died May 10, 1968, at just 61. Williams married Margaret “Meta” Scott of North Van on Oct. 19, 1927. Unless they fell in love right after he returned from New Zealand, that must have been quite a difficult four months apart. After the wedding, they lived at 860 Grand Boulevard for 32 years. Williams, who gained another measure of fame as the pairs lawn bowling silver medallist with Sam Gardiner at the 1954 British Empire Games, continued working with Birks Jewellers until retiring in 1963. He died at 75 on Jan. 12, 1974. The story of North Van’s two soccer stars of long ago was now over; but, thankfully, not forgotten. This is episode 463 from Len Corben’s treasure chest of stories – the great events and the quirky – that bring to life the North Shore’s rich sports history.

HOMETOWN BOY - Robert Sacré (left, as part of the Gonzaga Bulldogs) was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers last week. In 2006, Sacré led the Handsworth Royals to a B.C. provincial hoops crown. Outlook files

ormer Handsworth secondary basketball star Robert Sacré will be taking his talents to Venice Beach next season after being selected 60th overall by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2012 NBA draft on June 28. Sacré spent the past four years with Spokane’s Gonzaga Bulldogs, where he finished sixth alltime in rebounds, second in blocks and 21st in scoring. In his final season, Sacré averaged 11.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting a very respectable 51 per cent. He’s the first B.C.-bred pick since Captain Canada Steve Nash was drafted in the first round by the Phoenix Suns 16 years ago. Mock drafts had the seven-foot centre going in the mid-second round. But after the New Orleans Hornets selected Kentucky forward Darius Miller, Sacré slid to the final pick of the draft. “We were thinking mid-second round, but this is never about the number, it’s about the team,” Keith Kreiter, Sacré’s Illinios-based agent, told The Outlook. “We’re so thrilled he’s going to the Lakers, one of the most storied franchises in the NBA.” Kreiter said Sacré watched the draft with family in Louisiana and will head to Los Angeles in the next few days. Starting July 9, Sacré will begin playing in the NBA Summer League — an annual event aimed at giving rookies and other NBA youngsters the chance for high-level competition in the off-season. While at Gonzaga, Sacré earned a reputation as a tenacious defender and Kretier said that reputation will help Sacré on the world’s premier

basketball stage. “We’re very, very excited about the future. He’s going to thrive in that system. If he becomes a defensive specialist, Robert will stop everyone who gets in front of him.” Currently, the Lakers have two premier big men, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, on their roster. But the aging Gasol has been the subject of trade talks — Gasol was even part of a failed trade for superstar guard Chris Paul last year — and if moved before next season, Sacré could see a bump in his minutes as a result. Before heading south to join the ranks of the NCAA, Sacré was the standout star on the Handsworth Royals varsity squad. Sacré’s gregarious personality, combined with his size and athleticism made him popular with both the media and a swarm of college recruiters, according to his former high school coach Randy Storey. “Rob was a wonderful guy and his physical talents were tremendous. There were 42 universities recruiting him when he was here,” said Storey. “That physical stuff is what had those guys drooling. But his personality characteristics, the stuff that wasn’t so obvious, was what I think was his best trait. He has a great ability to make people around him feel better. He is an unselfish, supportive, team-dynamic kind of guy.” When Sacré was in Grade 11, he led the Royals to the 2006 ‘AAA’ provincial championship crown. It was a whirlwind season, Storey recalled, that saw the team travel extensively, gain media exposure and even receive a sponsorship from Nike. “It was like we were traveling with the fifth Beatle,” said Storey. “I’ve had a lot of emails and texts today. It’s exciting, everyone wants to talk about Rob.”

continued from, PAGE 6 and Ron Thom and kind of preach the gospel of modernism.” That’s when Froome and Bernard said, “Holy crap, let’s connect the dots.” “In terms of chasing down houses it’s like a treasure hunt. You start with the big names, you start reading about the history,” says Bernard, 42. Around the time they began their architectural adventure, the subject of modernism was beginning to be revisited with books like Pierluigi Serraino’s Modernism Rediscovered. But considering the monumental nature of the work, there’d been relatively little done on the subject. “There was really this rich history that has in some ways kind of been neglected,” says Bernard. “Even in Vancouver. Guys like Ron Thom and all these people — there was this tremendous body of work that kind of had got forgotten and glossed over. And then magazines like Wallpaper and Dwell kind of renewed interest in it. But they didn’t really dig so far into the roots of it and the kind of ethos of the time.” So, the pair sought to fill in the blind spot. They discovered that many of the pioneering architects — most now in their 80s — and their creations were still around. “A lot of the older architects are just so happy to have the interest in the works that they’d pass names on to you and inevitably every time we hung out with these people it always turned into lunch or dinner, [and] at least a couple bottles of wine.” The enormous scope of seminal modernist architectural works soon became apparent, and constructing a story of the movement on the West Coast proved to be a challenging narrative. “The story was really tricky. We’re covering 1922 to today — there’s all these different strains of where modernism went,” explains Bernard. While the story begins in the 20s, there was a period in the late 1950s and early 60s when modernist work was coming into its own, adds Bernard. “Modernism on the West Coast, this sort of imported European ideals, that’s really when it seemed to localize the most and stuff was going on.” And a lot of that work was happening on the North Shore, with its rugged topography proving irresistible for the early modernist West Coast architects. “[They] are really drawn to this whole hill — the idea of the view of the slope, for them that’s an opportunity. A lot of people today just put a huge rock wall and make it flat because they can’t get their head around the idea that we live on the edge of a mountain. Architects like Arthur Erickson, Ron Thom, Barry Downs, they thrive on that condition. That’s a buzz for them to be able to have a place that wanders down the hill and has all these moments of reveal

— that’s heaven for them,” says Bernard, who grew up in North Van. And, adds Froome, “One of the key tenants of modernism is nature in its raw state.” “So the North Shore being raw and completely untouched by traditional development at that time was an opportunity for these architects to design beautiful, inspired, small houses without ruining that natural landscape.” Sadly, many of those homes are no longer standing. “There is still [a few] but a lot of it has been demolished or butchered beyond belief,” says Froome, who is buoyed by the belief there seems to be a renewed reverence for such work and the preservation of these homes. When asked about the sacrifices made to make the doc, six years in the making, they both laugh. “It was big commitment, mostly because we were doing this as a project with other parts of lives,” says Bernard. That required extended weekend road trips, extended credit cards and marathon late-night sessions in the editing suite. After selling out at the DOXA Film Fest in May, Coast Modern debuts at the VanCity Theatre from July 6-12. “We just want people to realize how incredible the effort was made toward living in a new way and sort of question how we’re doing it today,” says Froome. “Today we have different needs — density is an issue, land price is an issue, we have a different set of needs. Modernism needs to tackle it with a whole set of different values but still keeping design and beauty and connection at the forefront.” After documenting so many modernist dwellings,

Bernard finds he asks himself this question a lot: “Is this the best we can do?” “And generally when I walk around or walk into people’s new places... it just doesn’t really seem that great compared with the real revolution that these guys brought on. You sort of feel like ‘Isn’t there something around the corner that’s really waiting to really reframe our thinking about this stuff?’ “This stuff that they were designing was totally radical. It’s hard to put our heads into the space, but it was pretty revolutionary at the time.” The Coast Modern project isn’t finished. Much of their footage didn’t make it into the 55-minute film. But recently, the pair received a grant to make a more enhanced version of their website. Using a Google map, they are plotting extended interviews, additional commentary, home profiles and other details and tidbits that didn’t make it to the film version. They hope to “really turn it into a resource so the project lives on and it becomes something people can contribute to,” says Bernard. Asked about his dream house, Froome reflects on the words of West Vancouver architect Peter Pratt, whose father Ned was one of Vancouver’s most celebrated modernist designers. “The smaller the house, the bigger the garden. “Really think about that,” says Froome. For more information about the film, visit coastmodernfilm.com. For show times for July 6-12 screenings, visit viff. org (Bernard and Froome will attend the July 6, 7 shows).
