North Van First Nation vows to halt Burnaby pipeline TODD COYNE STAFF REPORTER
arely one week after Kinder Morgan asked the National Energy Board to approve contracts for a twinned Trans Mountain pipeline between Edmonton and Burnaby, the Tsleil-Waututh Nation signed a legal declaration promising to tie up the expansion for decades to come. In a July 7ceremony at North Vancouverâ€™s Cates Park, Tsleil-Waututh chief Justin George signed his name to the the Save the Fraser Declaration, an aboriginal law banning Alberta oil sands pipelines on its signatoriesâ€™ lands. The law also restricts tankers from carrying any oil sands products across the ocean migration routes of Fraser River salmon along the whole B.C. coast. â€œWhat our elders told us as a council is enough is enough,â€? Chief George told the more than 150 attendees at the signing ceremony. â€œItâ€™s our aboriginal rights and title that stops this madness.â€? The declaration was initially drawn up by the Yinka Dene Alliance, a coalition of six First Nations in northern B.C., to block the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline from being built on their territories. But to date, more than 130 First Nations in B.C.
and several more in Alberta have signed the document, forming what the alliance now says is an unbroken blockade of all westward oil sands pipeline expansion reaching from the Canada-U.S. border to the Arctic Ocean. The signing received the blessing of Vancouver city councillors Adriane Carr and Andrea Reimer, and of NDP MP for Burnaby-Douglas Kennedy Stewart, who all served as formal witnesses in the ceremony. Though he did not attend, the national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, Shawn Atleo, sent a laudatory letter to the Tsleil-Waututh which was read in his absence. â€œI extend my full support for the exercise of your rights and responsibilities in this matter. As the national advocacy organization, we stand in full solidarity with you,â€? Atleo wrote, citing the federal governmentâ€™s obligation as a signatory to the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples to consult with First Nations and accommodate their demands where possible on projects affecting their lands. â€œI applaud your efforts to protect your pristine environment,â€? Atleo continued, â€œthe critical habitat of the salmon, and the entire river system of the Pacific North Coast from the threat of oil spills and other harm posed by oil pipeline development and expansion.â€?
And while June 29 marked the date of Kinder Morganâ€™s application to the National Energy Board for approval of contracts with nine shipping companies already signed up to use the $4.1-billion Trans Mountain expansion, the day was also significant for another â€” albeit, related â€” announcement from Ottawa. On June 29, the federal government passed its omnibus Bill C-38, the Budget Implementation Act, which critics, including the 130-plus B.C. aboriginal groups who have signed the Save the Fraser Declaration, say guts the environmental review process for resource projects and tries to sidestep First Nationsâ€™ rights to land and title. â€œIndividual [First] Nations can be quite small but together they have quite a massive resource pool that they can put towards many different kinds of court cases that can tie these things up for a very, very long time,â€? said NDP MP Kennedy Stewart, whose Burnaby-Douglas riding includes the Tsleil-Waututh lands on the south shore of Burrard Inlet where the Kinder Morgan pipeline meets the water. â€œSo what we see here is 130 nations binding together and saying, â€˜We donâ€™t believe in C-38 â€” not just the pipelines, but the whole process â€” and weâ€™re going to take you to court, essentially.â€?
MP Stewart said he will join the TsleilWaututh Nation in seeking intervenor status in the Kinder Morgan pipelineâ€™s approval process once the National Energy Boardâ€™s public hearings on the project begin. Spokespeople for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation reminded ceremony attendees that it was only five years ago that their community suffered the effects of an oil spill on the inlet. In July 2007, the error of a Burnaby city worker ruptured a Kinder Morgan pipeline in a residential neighbourhood near the Westridge Terminal, spraying 234,000 litres of oil onto the street and into the inlet. Twinning the Trans Mountain pipeline is expected to increase its capacity from the current 300,000 barrels per day to 750,000 by 2017, when Kinder Morgan plans to complete the expansion. â€œTheyâ€™re changing these environmental rules; theyâ€™re tweaking them, theyâ€™re making them weaker,â€? Chief George said. â€œBut they still need our consent; they still need our aboriginal rights and title. And weâ€™re not going to give them that.â€? A request for comment from North Vancouver Conservative MP Andrew Saxton was not returned by press time. email@example.com twitter.com/toddcoyne

this was too broad and would punish the typical law-abiding commuter skateboarder rather than those few reckless speeders they were trying to reign in. “We’re saying that we want to stop skateboarders on Skyline [Drive] because we have a concern about it,” Coun. Bassam argued. “But the rational destination of this argument is we’re going to ban skateboarding.” Supporting the ultimately victorious neighbourhood prohibition bylaw were councillors Lisa Muri, Alan Nixon, Robyn Hicks and Doug MacKay-Dunn, who authored the report. Their fundamental premise was that unless council acts now, someone’s going to be gravely injured or killed while coming down the Skyline corridor on a longboard. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we have to extend the prohibition to other local roads too,” Coun. Hicks said in a statement of support for the ban, though one that also inadvertently gave credence to the arguments of some in the anti-ban camp who say district bylaw officers will now find themselves playing an endless game of Whac-A-Mole with local longboarders. “It’ll be interesting to know how long it takes for the first person to ask, ‘Why should I have to put up with longboarders when Skyline doesn’t?’” Bassam asked rhetorically. The City of North Vancouver already bans skateboarding from its roads but allows it in parks and on sidewalks, while West Vancouver has outlawed the sport from public property altogether. firstname.lastname@example.org

oliticians in the District of North Vancouver have outlawed skateboarding from one of the North Shore’s most popular routes for riders, causing some on council to worry the move is a step down the slippery slope of banning skateboarding from the district altogether. In a 4-3 decision Monday night, district council voted to ban skateboarding from the 3.5-kilometre stretch of Forest Hills roadway encompassing Skyline Drive, Wavertree Road and Glenview Drive. And while the target of the ban is young longboarders who flock to these streets to race en masse down the steep grades and sharp corners, the ban is a blanket one outlawing all forms skateboarding on the three roads. Signs notifying skaters of the new bylaw are expected to spring up soon along the Skyline Drive corridor and, in two weeks, district engineers will explore the use of “board calming” measures such as so-called rumblestrips, if necessary. The vote was a contentious one, with no two councillors nor Mayor Richard Walton proposing the same solution. All agreed that protecting young longboarders from injury while preserving the enjoyment of the Forest Hills neighbourhood for residents was a priority. But that aim had many preferred paths. Voting against the neighbourhood skateboarding ban were Mayor Walton and councillors Mike Little and Roger Bassam. Walton said he’d only vote for the blanket ban if it included outlawing longboards from all district bus routes too. Council and staff argued

North Vancouver man who bludgeoned his father to death with a wrench and nearly killed his mother after taking multivitamins in place of his prescribed anti-psychotic medication has been found not criminally responsible for the attack due to his mental state. A B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled on July 6 that Jordan Ramsay did not know his actions were morally wrong when the 27-year-old schizophrenic brutally attacked his sleeping 53-year-old parents Donald and Wendy Ramsay in the family’s West 28th Street apartment last November. In her ruling, Judge Deborah Kloegman blamed the Ramsay family’s decision to replace Jordan’s psychiatric drugs with what purport to be mentally therapeutic multivitamins, for contributing to the fatal attack. “The accused was not taking his sorely needed medication at the time of the offenses, or at least not in the recommended dosage,” Kloegman ruled, referring to testimony from Ramsay’s psychiatrist, Dr. LeeAnne Meldrum. “His parents had unilaterally decided to reduce the dosage a couple of weeks before the night in question and then replaced the medication with power vitamins.” Now the deceased’s sister — Jordan’s aunt — says she wants the claims of the Canadian manufacturer of the multivitamins investigated, telling The Outlook she believes her brother would still be alive today if not for trusting in the alleged mental health benefits of the supplement program. “I know he would want this exposed,” LeeAnn Ramsay said in a June 18 letter to The Outlook. In finding Ramsay not criminally responsible for the charges of seconddegree murder and attempted murder, the judge cited not only the psychiatrist’s report which was gleaned from 40 interviews with Ramsay, but also reports from Lions Gate Hospital staff on the morning of Nov. 5, 2011. Taken shortly after Ramsay’s arrest for the attack, those reports show Ramsay telling staff he had been taken over by demons and was not sure if what had just happened was real or a dream. When asked if he understood that he was under arrest for murder, Ramsay replied: “No, I just got out of bed to get a drink of water and woke up like this,” the judge read. “When asked if he understood he could call any lawyer or would be provided with legal aid,” the judge continued, “the accused responded, ‘I’ve been living with a heart palpitation.’ “When asked, ‘Do you wish to call a lawyer?’ the accused responded, ‘I’m just a kid.’” Ramsay was diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 18 and was on an extended leave from the psychiatric ward at Nanaimo General Hospital when he attacked his parents. The night before the attack, an apparently delusional Ramsay asked his mother who the person sitting beside the fireplace was, the court heard. “There was no one sitting in the chair,” the judge read, as Ramsay looked on silently from the prisoner’s box. Later that evening, a deeply aggravated Ramsay came out of the bathroom and asked his mother who she was. “Jordan, I’m your mother. Go to bed,” came the response. At approximately 1:38 the following morning, a neighbour called the North Vancouver RCMP to report violent banging and a woman screaming from the Ramsay apartment. “The woman heard, ‘Jordan, stop! Stop!,’” the judge read. Three North Vancouver Mounties attended the scene and heard a woman crying on the other side of the Ramsays’ door. Finding the door unlocked, the officers let themselves into the apartment where they heard running water in the bathroom and saw the shadow of a person move into the bathroom. Police shouted at the person to come out before moving towards the bathroom door where they found Ramsay standing alone and holding a long torque wrench covered in blood. When police told Ramsay to drop the wrench, he just stared back. A struggle for the wrench ensued, in which Ramsay was shocked in the arm with a Taser and pepper sprayed in the face, to no apparent effect. The three officers eventually tackled and handcuffed Ramsay before he was examined by BC Ambulance attendants and taken to Lions Gate Hospital. Wendy Ramsay was found laying unconscious on the bedroom floor with her head in her hands, covered in blood. Paramedics and firefighters treated her at the scene and she was taken to Lions Gate Hospital for severe head injuries. Donald Ramsay was found dead, slumped over the side of the bed with his head on the floor in a pool of blood. The B.C. Review Board now has 45 days to decide whether Ramsay will be remanded in custody at a psychiatric facility or released. And while his lawyer, Dan Sudeyko, told the court Friday that he will not ask the review board for release, he will ask that a North Vancouver provincial court condition barring Ramsay from having any contact with his mother be lifted. “I’m told by the victim’s services person that his mother, who has not had any contact with him, would like to resume contact,” Sudeyko said. email@example.com

Home is where the art is
Coast Modern architecture takes centre stage in North Shore tour
TODD COYNE S TA F F R E P O RT E R
nhabiting art can be a big responsibility. For residents of Montiverdi Estates — a lofty granite enclave high on the western shoulder of West Vancouver — it’s a life’s work. Much like Montreal’s Habitat 67, Montiverdi is a concept community built on a singular architectural vision of modernism meets best practices. And today, the owners of the 18 estates of Montiverdi widely consider themselves and each other the keepers of a legacy and the custodians of the largest living museum of works by the late renowned architect, Arthur Erickson. A “living” museum, not only for the bustle of the cul-de-sac’s forty-odd residents, but because of the “nature” of Erickson’s designs; sheer walls of overgrown granite meeting walls of sheet glass, flying buttresses making rest-stops for flying birds. “The thing I really love about this house is it feels like a tree house,” says Désirée LaCas who, with husband Brian LaCas, lives in the neighbourhood’s original show home, built in 1981. In fact, from a quick street-level survey of the neighbourhood, it’s not unusual to see mature red cedar trees punching through the floors of patios and garages, narrowly missing late-model luxury vehicles, and rising high through ceilings and into the canopy above. Not unusual, but not conspicuous either, as Erickson’s trademark inside-out aesthetic nowhere marries his interiors and exteriors so seamlessly as within these woods and rock outcroppings. That aesthetic is today celebrated as a staple of Erickson’s work and that of his contemporaries like Ned Pratt and Ron Thom, who have since gained prominence collectively as pioneers of West Coast Modernism. “It’s like belonging to an auto club or an art collectors' club,” Brian LaCas says of living in Erickson’s Montiverdi Estates. “Everyone who lives here is a collector and has such an appreciation of Erickson’s vision.” And now that club will open to the public — if only for a day. And only for those lucky enough to have already snapped up a ticket. This Saturday, the owners of six significant West Coast Modern homes on the North

Shore will open their doors to the architecturally inclined as part of the West Vancouver Museumâ€™s West Coast Modern home tour. A recently renovated 1951 Ned Pratt house, a 1958 North Vancouver Ron Thom, an eclectic remodeled 1958 Edward Poskitt residence, a â€œfloatingâ€? 1967 Barclay MacLeod and two of Ericksonâ€™s Montiverdi Estates make up the halfdozen homes on the tour. â€œWest Coast Modernism is a way of living,â€? says tour coordinator and West Van Museum assistant curator Kiriko Watanabe. â€œItâ€™s how you live close to nature and the connection between interior and exterior is just so subtle that you donâ€™t even realize when youâ€™re in the house, youâ€™re so surrounded by nature.â€? One of the tourâ€™s finest examples of that kind of transparent interior space is just across from the LaCasâ€™s home in Montiverdi, at the cliffside abode of Chip Mitchell. From the steep, fern-covered granite rock face of his backyard, Mitchell enjoys an almost unobstructed panoramic view of Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast â€” straight through the glassy heart of his home. â€œThe house has a very West Coast First Nations sense of spiritual B.C.,â€? Mitchell says, looking out over the Strait of Georgia from his lovingly restored kitchen. â€œYou see some of the Tudor and Mediterranean style homes around here and they just donâ€™t quite fit. These houses though, you just feel they were built to be right here in the rainforest.â€? email@example.com twitter.com/toddcoyne

ach year Jim Smiths from across North America get together to celebrate their common name. This year, the 43rd annual convention will be in North Vancouver. “We’re like a big family who travels every year to meet each other,” said North Vancouver resident Jim Smith, who has been part of the Jim Smith Society since the 1970s. The 2,000-member club is open to anyone with the name, including people with the name James. The tight-knit group will be meeting at the Pinnacle Hotel from July 19 to 21. On the docket for the event is some sightseeing and playing JIMGO - their version of BINGO. Most Jim Smiths in the society are American, so conventions are usually held in the United States. North Van’s Jim Smith has met up with namesakes in Washington, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Louisiana. “We call each other nicknames so it doesn’t get too confusing with all the Jim Smiths around.” His nickname is, suitably, “North Van,” while other Jims are named after their hometowns, their appearance or their personality. Jim from North Carolina is affectionately called “Charlotte” after the largest city in the state. The attendees will be wearing blue T-shirts with their society’s logo, “We don’t shun fun” to all their outings. They also have hats, belt buckles, pins and a monthly newsletter. The Jims usually bring their wives, affectionately called Jims’ Gems. The club only has one female member, JimAnne, but that number should grow because Jamies have recently been allowed to join. “JimAnne’s father’s name was James, and he made her promise to keep the name James - or Jim - continuing in the family’s next generations.” It’s not uncommon to see a father pass down the name Jim to his son, so both can be members of the group. Even people with a variation of Jim for their middle name can opt-in, like the son of the North Vancouver Smiths whose middle name is James. “Our newest member is from Langley. He is 95 years old and was very excited to join,” Smith said. The recent recruit’s nickname might end up being Mad Dog because of his email address. The Smiths are even trying to draft their neighbour, whose middle name is James, but so far he has declined the offer. Smith is a common surname, but two Jims discovered they were distance relatives at recent annual convention. Having a common last name, however, can be a hassle, added Smith. He listed his phone number under his middle name so people would be able to find it easier and he and others with the same name have been held up at the airport when officials were looking for another Jim Smith. “But having a common name is great. Who else can say they belong to a club made just for people with the same name?” For more information about the group go to www.jimsmithsociety.com.

North Van tennis star wins Wimbledon boys’ cup Peliwo’s mother says he’s shown relentless drive since he was a toddler MICHAELA GARSTIN S TA F F R E P O RT E R
orth Vancouver tennis player Filip Peliwo’s parents knew he was destined to be a champion more than a decade before he won the 2012 Wimbledon boys’ title. The 18-year-old defeated Australian Luke Saville in straight sets 7-5 and 6-4 on July 8 to take home the trophy and prove he’s the best male junior player in the world. The game was Peliwo’s first victory in a Grand Slam final after three attempts. “Since he was two years old he has been amazingly skilled and very co-ordinated,” said his mother Monika Peliwo, who drove him to daily practices before and after school. Peliwo started playing tennis at public parks in North Vancouver, but switched to the North Shore Winter Club when he became more serious once he turned eight years old. He went to Larson elementary and left Sentinel secondary school in West Vancouver to train professionally in Montreal, where he completed his Grade 12 studies. Peliwo started playing both soccer and tennis but had to pick one sport because there wasn’t enough time to practice both.
“He was very talented at soccer and he really enjoyed playing it, but tennis was what he liked best. He never once complained about going to practice,” his mother said. Peliwo is the youngest of three children and the first born in Canada to Polish parents, all of whom are athletic. “There wasn’t much going on when training professionally for tennis here in Vancouver, at least back then. So he had to move away to train in Montreal,” his mother said. Becoming a tennis star was a long time coming for Peliwo, who could shoot basketballs when he was just a toddler and quickly became extremely dedicated to the sport, she said. “It was such a long road and so much hard work, and now we know he is one of the very best in the world.” Peliwo won a title along with fellow Canadian Eugénie Bouchard who claimed the girls’ trophy. He will be playing closer to home at the Odium Brown VanOpen at the Hollyburn Country Club on July 28. firstname.lastname@example.org twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin

He has demonstrated ted that his experience & work ethics remain as good as ever, since on his sometimes steep & numerous stairway, despite thee winter weather & extra Åyers, his newspapers arrive to each doorstep without fail. He at times gets a lift from his parents to o the top of his route so that he may more easily do his route downwards. nwards. John likes to paddle board & play soccer. He has been doing Tae Kwon Do at the “Inner Circle” club for over a year. He enjoys riding his scooter, gaming with his PS3 & reading Äction & adventure novels.

watching movies with my kids.â€? With such a ritzy public image, the television show Real Housewives of Vancouver relentlessly tried to persuade her to be one of the cast members but she steadfastly refused. Now the Yacoubs are thinking about what to do next. They get a buzz when they open a new restaurant but they also have to reconcile that they canâ€™t be doing it all themselves. â€œI miss the days when we could make an impact on everyone walking in the door and touching every table and making the connections,â€? Shannon says. Emad adds, â€œI have spent all my life chasing a dream of wanting to do good for me, for the people around me, my partners, my family. But thereâ€™s always that doubt. When youâ€™re pushing your way to the top and when you get there, thereâ€™s always someone shooting at you. I still see myself as a young kid opening the door and saying, â€˜Let me look after you.â€™â€? Maybe itâ€™s time for a different kind of business challenge. Or maybe Emad right now is walking into a building that gives him inspiration for another restaurant. Theyâ€™re ready for anything because they have each other. Emad says, â€œShannon will keep me straight. Sheâ€™s the one â€” sheâ€™s the class in the relationship, sheâ€™s the beauty in the relationship.â€? Shannon says her husband is the smartest person she knows, and itâ€™s uncanny how well he knows her. â€œWe have a nice balance,â€? she says. â€œWe canâ€™t pull mind games on each other.â€?
