he City of North Vancouver is preparing a partial overhaul of two city blocks of Lower Lonsdale, widening the road, replacing car parking with motorcycle and scooter stalls, and fixing a longstanding gap in one of the city’s busiest bicycle corridors. The Esplanade Avenue realignment project is expected to break ground next month and will cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars to revamp the south side of Esplanade Avenue between Lonsdale Avenue to the east and Chesterfield Court to the west. While North Vancouver city asked The Outlook not to publish the exact budget for the overhaul as the tender process is still open for bidding, the work to be completed by mid to late October is extensive. First, everything on the south side must go — from trees to gutters, sidewalks to lamp standards and even a fire hydrant — before the actual realignment and bike lane installation work can begin. “There will be some loss of parking in the area from Rogers [Avenue] to Chesterfield [Court],” said City of North Vancouver streetscape planner Alex Kurnicki in a phone interview with The Outlook. On that block, three to four car parking spaces will be removed and replaced with two or three smaller spaces for motorcycle and scooter parking, Kurnicki said, adding the choice was

WVSD’s new baseball academy a big hit with students JUSTIN BEDDALL EDITOR

T

his year, Will McAffer’s back-to-school supplies list got longer. Along with pens and binders, he’ll also be required to bring a helmet, glove, bat, indoor and outdoor turf shoes and water bottle when he arrives for his first day of school. That’s because he’s one of 20 boys, from grades 9 to 11, who’ll be participating in the West Vancouver School District’s new baseball academy. The thought of leaving school after lunch every day to hit the baseball diamond has McAffer, 15, really excited about the first day of school for a change. An early adopter when it comes to offering students sport-specific academies, WVSD already offers specialized study in hockey, tennis, golf and soccer. Diane Nelson, the principal of sports academies for the WVSD, says the idea of the baseball academy has been tossed around for a while, but there’s always been a glaring problem: Vancouver’s extra-long rainy season. But with a new partner in Inside Performance, a recently opened indoor development centre in North Vancouver that boasts more than 4,000-square-feet of turf and skilled staff, there will be no rain delays for the new program. Located at Rockridge and Sentinel, the baseball academy works like this: Students attend regular classes in the morning and hone their baseball skills in the afternoon — from bunting and base-running to using a proper two-seam fastball. The student ballplayers also attend classroom sessions focused on sports and lifestyle, with topics that include sports psychology, sports nutrition and team building, among others. Indoor sessions take place at Inside Performance, while outdoor sessions are at Parkgate Park in the Seymour-area, and Nelson says the roster is nearly full. With the steady success of Canadians in Major League Baseball — Langley’s Brett Lawrie, the elaborately tattooed third baseman of the Toronto Blue Jays, the most recent

to make headlines— it’s no wonder the baseball academy is drawing interest from young players across the Lower Mainland who are interested in extending their baseball seasons and receiving top coaching. The program, which costs around $500 per month, already has players from Point Grey, Vancouver and Richmond signed up. But this isn’t just a program for players with big league dreams, says Nelson, noting all the school district’s sporting academies are open to student athletes of all abilities and players are grouped together based on skill level. Of course, there have been many notably talented grads from the academies, including recent top NHL draft picks Griffin Reinhart and Morgan Rielly. McAffer is a serious ballplayer whose club team is the North Shore Twins. With dreams of one day landing a baseball scholarship, possibly in the U.S., the 15-year-old hopes to develop as a player, hone his mechanics and add a little muscle to his frame while at the academy. He’s excited about reuniting with the academy’s top skipper Brooks McNiven, a coach he played for at the B.C. Summer Games. A former MLB draft pick who pitched for Canada at the 2008 Olympics, McNiven will be assisted by coaches Ken Mackenzie and Graeme Lehman, Stephan Grisbrook of Inside Performance and other guest coaches. “They get outstanding coaching,” says Nelson. “You’ll get all kinds of pros who come into town and stop in and give the kids a session or two.” As part of the program the young players will also visit a chiropractic doctor to learn about injury prevention and take yoga classes every second week, both to help improve their flexibility and to reduce stress. Pitcher/first baseman Braedan Fitzpatrick, 16, a teammate of McAffer’s on the Twins, also has aspirations of earning a U.S. baseball scholarship — and this new acad-

Carson Graham goes new school New $38-million high school boasts high ceilings, lots of natural light and plenty of laptop plug-ins MICHAELA GARSTIN S TA F F R E P O RT E R

T

he design of the new Carson Graham secondary is a far cry from the 1960s architecture of the old building, which is currently being torn down to make way for the brand new $38-million high school. High ceilings, huge windows and plenty of laptop plugs are prominent features of the new school, designed to accommodate 1,100 students from both the Balmoral and Carson catchment areas. The North Van school district decided to build the new school after studies showed the cost to seismically upgrade the structure was 90 per cent of the cost of completely replacing the school. The old school will soon be torn down, with the exception of a 2001 addition that houses the school’s small gym, theatre, dance studio, science rooms and offices. “Every room has natural light. Most have windows, but if there isn’t they will have ‘borrowed’ light, such as from a skylight,” says Ian Abercrombie, director of facilities and planning for the North Vancouver School District, as he gives The Outlook a tour of the three-storey building. Carson Graham alumni may remember small classrooms with florescent lighting, dim, nar-

row hallways and a rickety weight room above the gym. Now these have been replaced with classrooms overlooking the mountains and sports fields, a three-storey atrium at the centre of the school and innovative classrooms designed specifically for different subjects. The building has also given the school’s career programs — such as chef training and automotive — new homes with updated equipment. “The training kitchen, that was temporarily discontinued in 2009 for these renovations, is now reestablished with an open kitchen so the kids can see how their food is dispensed,” says Abercrombie as he points to the large stainless steel kitchen behind shelves that will be stocked for students in less than a month. With only a short timeframe in the summer to complete construction, crews are hustling to have the project finished by the first day of classes in early September. The outside landscaping and removal of the old school will be done throughout the school year.

hat culture is a commodity to be traded seems to be the unofficial theme of this year’s Tsleil-Waututh Nation Cultural Arts Festival. Now in its sixth year running, this year’s event promises to maintain the festival’s traditional aim of showcasing Tsleil-Waututh arts and culture. But it will also welcome performers and artists from several other nations to the trading table, including from the Squamish, Sto:lo and Musqueam bands. “It’s really an opportunity for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation to share their culture,� said festival planner and Raven Events and Communications manager Katrin Harry in an interview Monday. “It’s all about experiencing aboriginal culture, learning about the Tsleil-Waututh Nation’s inextricable link to its territory, and it’s really a celebration of diversity and family and community. The festival really honours traditional and contemporary trade relationships and partnerships. And so we looked for entertainment that was out of the territory or neighbouring territory.� This year’s celebration kicks off at noon Sunday at Cates Park with an opening address from Tsleil-Waututh chief Justin George, followed by announcements from local politicians and community leaders. Then it’s right into the program on the Chief Dan George Main Stage with North Vancouver rock band Bitterly Divine, led by the Squamish Nation’s Tewanee Joseph. The Smokey Valley Pow Wow Dancers, Black Owl Blues and Christy Charles are also slated to perform, alongside a special Tsleil-Waututh scavenger hunt, canoe tours of Burrard Inlet in traditional 25-foot canoes and demonstrations of ancient coastal technologies. But, of course, it’s not all about looking to the past. “The Tsleil-Waututh Nation will also display some of their new economic development activities,� Harry said. “There will be someone down there from the Raven Woods condominium development and so forth. “It’s a great opportunity for neighbours to connect and that’s what it’s designed for,� Harry continued. “Obviously it’s for all communities in the Tsleil-Waututh traditional territory but we’re really looking for the people from the North Shore to get to know each other.� To that end, the festival will run a shuttle service to and from the festival site from both Dollarton Village and the

22 marathons in 22 days North Van teacher tries to raise his concerns about Bill 22 by putting on his running shoes for a gruelling 1,000-kilometre run

Rose & Crown Pub MARATHON MAN - Teacher Ian Cunliffe’s marathon mission has him on the road running six hours a day. Submitted photo “Teaching them takes up a lot of my time, and really takes away from the other students.” Before Bill 22 was introduced, a maximum of three special needs students could be in a classroom at a time, says Cunliffe, and class size was reduced by one for each student. But, he adds, the Education Improvement Act does away with this, making students suffer. Another part of Bill 22 — one of the biggest problems in the eyes of the North Van teacher — abolishes the limit placed on the number of students in a class, forcing teachers to handle more kids at one time. “It’s difficult to teach in a way that’s manageable. We’ll end up just giving them work books to keep the class in control, which definitely isn’t a good way for kids to learn.” Cunliffe is afraid more parents will start sending their children to private schools, if they can afford it, while others will be forced to put their kids to public schools that “just limp along.” For much of his teaching career Cunliffe has been frustrated by funding cuts. More than $3 billion has been taken away from the education system in just 10 years, he says, forcing libraries to cut back services and counsellors to be in charge of up to 1,200 students at a time. But Cunliffe, talking on his phone 1,000 kilometres from home, says something can be done about the problem, and not everyone has to go on a province-wide marathon. “Call your elected officials and let them know how important public education is to you, and that they need to do something about it to get your vote.”

unning 22 marathons in 22 days across B.C. is no easy feat, says North Vancouver teacher Ian Cunliffe, but every mile is worth it if he can bring more attention to Bill 22, the B.C. government’s Education Improvement Act. The bill’s name is misleading because it “slashes funding to the bone” rather than improving education, Cunliffe says, speaking to The Outlook by phone at a pit-stop on day two of his grueling 1,000-kilometre run. Steadily following Highway 3, he left Fernie that morning on his way to Jaffray, a village 47 kilometres east of Cranbrook. With just the second day of 20 completed, the Canyon Heights elementary teacher and librarian knows his muscles will start to give out close to the finish line in Vancouver. “I feel it’s my professional responsibility to tell people the devastating effects Bill 22 will have on our education system,” says Cunliffe as he winds down from his day spent running up and down steep hills in the Kootenay region. While running six hours each day, often in scorching heat through rough terrain, will be challenging, Cunlifffe says it’s an easy price to pay for the kids he teaches. “Private schools have record numbers on their waitlists, and there’s a reason for this. We have a great public system; what we don’t have is funding. I hope people will realize the public education system needs more.” Cunliffe says his top worries about Bill 22 are that it erases limits on class size, doesn’t guarantee support for special needs students or set a number for how many special needs students are in a class. “[Special needs] students are really neat kids, they’re just great, but they have challenges and need support,” says Cunliffe, overwhelmed with emotion, adding that he has taught many unforgettable children with learning challenges.

— GUEST COLUMN —

Vacation vexation S

ometimes it seems like the whole world is on vacation. Don’t know about you, but I’m here in this box, at this terminal (double entendre?), the second week of August doing the same thing I was doing the CHRIS BRYAN » GUEST COLUMNIST first week of January. Don’t get me wrong (Hi Boss!), I love the job. Just feeling a bit cranky, and I kind of despise teenagers right about now. They’re easy to spot, all sun-bleached hair and nut brown in tank tops and flip flops. Struggling with huge decisions like do I go to the beach or the mall? Or flake out at the park? What a drag. Then there are the teachers. Easy to spot—the ones feeling a little blue right about now because, you know, it’s August already? Just three or four weeks left of summer? A friend teaches college. We’re talking four months. Does hate the sin, love the sinner apply here? I’m going to stop myself now, because this pity party is not making me feel any better. On days like this, it seems the world is one big beach and all I see is a chainedlink fence. The park across the street from my office is crazy with lawn chairs and bocce tournaments. My neighbours are packing up their SUVs for the Island, and for Okanagan sun. Right. The bright side… The drive into work is kind of nice. There’s no one on the road. And wow! There are parking spots galore once I get to work! Maybe those pleasures outweigh the aggravations of being on holiday. Those beaches can get busy. And don’t forget how hot it can be out in the sunshine between dips in the ocean. Sunscreen is expensive! And drinking a beer or two out on the deck in the afternoon every day can put a few pounds on that waist line. Perhaps perspective is needed. Is anyone out there? Maybe I’m not the only one, sitting here, by myself, while all of you, you know… My brother lives in Denmark, and his Facebook page is full of updates from Mallorca, the cabin and great dinners with friends under the northern sky. In Scandinavia you don’t say you’re going on vacation. You tell folks when you’re going back to work. “Really?” “Yeah. Just for a couple weeks, then I’m off for another five.” “Oh.” Somewhere in Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm there must be hidden factories where replicants do all the work. I was pleased to hear Stephen Harper is using Europe’s economic troubles as an opportunity to teach all those Continental layabouts a lesson, and perhaps nudge them into reconsidering their awful socialist tendencies. Harper told them they’re on their own. There’d be no cash from us—Europe is rich. Instead of taking our money, they need to raise the retirement age like us, dammit, and stop having so much fun! Perhaps we’re all headed the way of Asia. Instead of mandatory vacations of four and five weeks (and more) like one finds in Europe, we will be more like Taiwan, where you get seven days, or Thailand’s six calendar days, or even China, where you get five. After 10 years it goes up to 10. Considering all that, maybe it’s time for me to shut my trap a little and count my blessings. And keep marking Xs on that calendar until the break arrives.

ast week the District of West Vancouver celebrated 22 years of the Harmony Arts Festival. A lot has changed over the years, including the addition of even more arts and crafts, live music nights and an outdoor wine garden that has quickly become one of the most popular features of the whole festival. Record crowds came out to help celebrate and take in the various lectures, art displays and outdoor activities that lined the waterfront and beach areas between Ambleside and John Lawson Park. And none of it would have been possible without the help of countless volunteers who helped set up behind the scenes.

Fall students ready to flood Cap U’s new film centre

he film department at Capilano University has yet to call “action” on its first fall term inside the new $30-million Nat and Flora Bosa Centre for Film and Animation, but already enrolment numbers are up. “I haven’t even really looked at the applications yet, but we’re getting them from all across Canada,” Cap U film centre director Bill Thumm tells The Outlook while wandering the state-ofthe-art centre’s high-ceilinged studios and hitech editing suites. “And we’ve always had some international presence but the number of queries we’ve had from international students is greater now. We’ve had students from Japan, Korea, Germany and the United States.” And it’s no wonder the North Van university’s movie-making department has seen a bump in enrolment, given the addition of several new courses and a new two-year digital visual effects degree program, facilitated by the move into the expanded centre earlier this year. Most of the department’s students still come from B.C., Alberta and Ontario, Thumm says, and on graduation, most go back to wherever they came from, including the international students. “There’s no doubt that the tax cuts have pushed people and the industry back to Ontario,” Thumm says, referring to the considerably high tax breaks the Ontario government now gives film and video-game makers, luring many formerly B.C.-based companies east. “Though, we’ve had just a huge uptake in our animation and visual effects programs.” With 69,000 square feet of indoor studio, design, editing, viewing and office space, the new Bosa centre is unlike any university film facility in the country, Thumm says. Boasting a 205-seat, THX-certified 3D theatre, costume design stu-

dios, multiple animation labs, editing suites and a studio backlot that will soon feature a permanent city environment on the edge of the Lynn Canyon wilds, Cap U. appears committed to remaining on the cutting edge of the modern film industry for the long haul. The Bosa centre’s construction was one of 39 recent projects at B.C. post-secondary institutions that made up the Knowledge Infrastructure Program, a joint federal-provincial investment designed to renew infrastructure at post-secondary schools across the province while also providing local jobs for communities. “We are deeply appreciative of the contributions made by the federal and provincial governments, as well as the generous financial support received from the Bosa family,” Cap U president and vice-chancellor, Kris Bulcroft, said at the centre’s opening in February. “It is especially rewarding to see our vision of creating a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial filmmakers move forward through the meaningful assistance and leadership of so many.” Cap U has been a major player for many years in building B.C.’s film and animation industries and the Bosa centre is now considered one of the top film and animation teaching facilities in North America. “This is an industry that employs 35,000 people and injects more than $2 billion annually into the provincial economy,” said North Shore Studios and Mammoth Studios president Peter Leitch at the Bosa opening. “Capilano University’s film and animation programs produce skilled graduates capable of strengthening the industry’s growth, and the Bosa Centre will ensure that students and industry workers alike are provided with the necessary tools for creating excellence in their productions.” tcoyne@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/toddcoyne

NATURE RETREAT - North Vancouver Outdoor School’s new $5.8-million Environmental Learning Centre near Brackendale. Submitted photo

NVSD’s multimillion-dollar ‘tree house’ ready for kids North Vancouver Outdoor School’s Environmental Learning Centre officially open TODD COYNE S TA F F R E P O RT E R

P

erched atop a sprawling 420-acre ecological reserve in Paradise Valley near Brackendale, the North Vancouver Outdoor School’s new LEED-certified centre lives up to its “tree house” concept in more ways than one. To be certain, its up-off-the-ground design vaults visitors into classrooms at eye-level with the native eagles in the surrounding canopy. But it’s also the building’s ecological design — geothermal water heating and a stormwater harvesting system — that gives the woodframed Environmental Learning Centre a feeling of being as much of the old growth forest as in it. After formally opening its doors June 20 to school officials, corporate donors and visiting politicians, the North Vancouver School District is now hoping its award-winning site will itself serve as a cutting-edge teaching tool as kids return to school this September. “Everything we do up there from how we heat the building or the energy we save with the building or right down to our food services, provides us with an opportunity to have a teach-

ing tool that demonstrates what we’re trying to do,” said Cathy Jenkins, project manager for the North Shore Credit Union Environmental Learning Centre. With two classrooms, a gallery space, amphitheatre, plus eating and meeting space, Jenkins said the new Outdoor School building ought to prove more attractive now to corporate clients as well — who, in turn, feed money back into the programs for kids. “We plan to build on that business now that we have a bit nicer space to offer corporate groups and then those funds that we get from our rentals feeds back into the school,” Jenkins said. “We hope to just increase that business side now that we have more to offer. “But,” she added, “it remains a school.” Construction on the $5.8-million centre began in February 2011 and was made possible by a $1-million legacy donation from the North Shore Credit Union. The Outdoor School provides a unique opportunity for North Shore students to learn about the environment with hands-on outdoor programming and overnight field excursions. Prior to the new centre’s opening in June, the school operated out of several small buildings scattered around the ecological reserve, many of which have suffered damage from frequent flooding — a problem the new centre will avoid with its elevated footing. tcoyne@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/toddcoyne

arents walking into the North Shore’s newest daycare will notice a huge brightly coloured space filled with dolls, building blocks, books, cribs and strollers. Construction crews are painting the walls yellow, green and blue — the national child care centre’s signature colours — and installing pint-sized furniture before the grand opening next month. When full, 95 kids up to age 12 will be looked after at Kids & Company, located in the same building as Indigo on Marine Drive in North Vancouver. “Our children’s self esteem is high because they can be with a friend, and grow up together here,” Denise Kelly, the company’s director of operations for B.C., tells The Outlook on a tour of the centre. Each room is designed for infants, toddlers, preschoolers or elementary school kids, so the centre can accommodate children until they begin high school. The daycare serves corporate clients from North Shore businesses, including ICBC, WorksafeBC, Rogers, Shaw and local banks. The companies pay the daycare a fee in exchange for a guaranteed child care spot within six months, a desperately needed service in a community where parents can wait up to two years for a

space to open up. Kelly says 10 per cent of the spaces are put aside for North Shore community members who are not corporate clients, but the spots are filling up fast. “When parents come to visit they say ‘holy moly’ because it’s very nice in here, and they can tell their children are having a good time,” says Sherry Shirritt, the daycare’s Western regional director, as she joins the tour. The daycare, which sits in the old location of Taylor’s Crossing restaurant, is one of four locations in B.C. and 26 throughout Canada. North Van’s Kids & Company is quickly beginning to take shape. As the tour turns upstairs, a big pile of cardboard is being taken out for recycling after brandnew toys and furniture are unwrapped and placed in play areas. An outside area is waiting for a new playground, but construction has yet to start. The daycare provides food for all its children, a big plus for busy parents, says Kelly. Lunches including fruit kabobs with yogurt and fruit puree, fish with dill sauce and homemade soups are aimed to stop kids from becoming picky eaters. So, what is the fee? “It costs money to get the very best,” says Shirritt, adding that dolllar-fordollar, Kids & Company is a good price, especially since it includes food and has longer hours than many other daycares. Shirritt says the exact price is based on each situation and parents can call the company for more information. The average fee is around $50 a day. To learn more, visit kidsandcompany.ca

Easy and healthy lunch options Earn an ‘A’ for nutrition with these sandwiches RACHEL DAVIDSON BLACK PRESS

T

he start of another school year brings the refreshing potential for new culinary beginnings. But it usually doesn’t take long before the eternal question rears its ugly head: What to do about weekday lunches? I must admit that I wasn’t crazy about the expensive, oddly shaped chicken tenders at my high school cafeteria, so I ate my mom’s lovingly-prepared cheeseand-cracker morsels nearly every lunch hour. I downed a lifetime supply of crackers before I changed my ways, and I now know that taking the extra five minutes to make a healthy meal not only saves money, but also boosts nutritive value to keep energy high during long afternoons. Consider the sandwich, a midday staple. The British Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu, probably had no idea just how far his legacy would spread when he coined the name for this doughy delight in 1765. However, he may be concerned to discover that the sandwich has become under-appreciated in modern times. Too often, meat and bread are lovelessly shoved together in a grocery store or cafe, tightly packaged, and left out to dry – or simply become stale and soggy.

Create special memories with your preschooler!

But you don’t have to suffer at lunch hour. I’m glad to offer good news: there are myriad ways in which to offer proper gratitude to Earl Montagu and redeem the forsaken sandwich from the comfort of your own kitchen! Try these three options, which are packed with fresh and healthy ingredients so you can feel good about your noontime nosh. Tangy Chicken Wrap This is a great way to revitalize leftovers from a supermarket pre-roasted chicken dinner. Take some slices of meat and wrap them inside a whole wheat tortilla with some shredded lettuce, sliced cherry tomatoes, a pinch of salt, and some metabolism-boosting red pepper flakes. For the “tangy” kick, add some mustard, or go the Asian route with a dash of hoisin and Sriracha “rooster” sauce (both available in the Asian section at most groceries).

PB&J Last but not least, let’s tackle the childhood favourite of peanut butter and jelly. While peanut butter is already a solid choice due to its heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, you can amp up the nutrients of this classic combination by forgoing white bread in favour of sprouted grain. In this little-known nutritive superhero, whole grains are allowed to sprout so that each loaf retains valuable protein and fibre while cutting back on carbs. Squish it all together with bananas and/or fresh berries instead of over-sweetened jam for a delightfully messy and much healthier treat.

TLC, Thanksgiving Style Give yourself some tender loving care with everyone’s favourite Thanksgiving lean protein! Try stuffing deli-prepared turkey and cheese (bonus points for using low fat varieties) between leaves of romaine or butter lettuce. Skipping bread altogether will help you avoid the short energy spike caused by carbohydrates, and you’ll feel full for longer when you stick to slow-burning protein and fibre. If you want to get especially crazy, finish off with some thin apple slices or cranberry sauce.

Eating homemade lunches can be even more exciting if you go beyond paper bags and get creative with your lunch packs. Use cookie cutters on your sandwiches, or cut them into strips for dipping in your favourite sauces or salad dressings. And if you invest in some quality, environmentally friendly Tupperware with fun colours and patterns, even the simple act of taking out your lunch will be sure to cheer you up! Now that you’re armed with some ideas, it’s high time to go forth and have fun with your food!

Whatever happened to… Jay Dahlgren?

PLEASE SLOW DOWN

The journey of a javelin thrower

JAVELIN DAYS - Delbrook grad Jay Dahlgren was Canada’s best javelin thrower for a decade beginning in 1966.

But if you ask Jay what are her best memories from her lengthy time in track and field, she doesn’t mention that bronze medal in Jamaica, or the bronze she won in the javelin in the Pan-Am Games the next year in Winnipeg or a third bronze she earned in 1970 at the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh. Instead – when we talked this week after I tracked her down at home in the historic little mining village of Cumberland, 10 kilometres from Courtenay in the Comox Valley where she’s lived the past five years – she responds without hesitation with two favourite memories from 1966 and one from 1975, the years bookmarking her international career. The first she says are the messages her classmates signed in her Delbrook annual at graduation in June 1966, wishing her well in cus (127’ 2 ½”), eclipsing the meet records by a monster six feet the Commonwealth Games that summer.
