PROTEST PADDLE - Paddlers from Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh and other Coastal First Nations perform a water ceremony in front of Kinder Morgan’s Westridge Marine Terminal. CNW Group/Tsleil-Waututh Nation photo

North Shore nations united in pipeline protest Squamish and TsleilWaututh nations sign declaration to stop Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion TODD COYNE S TA F F R E P O RT E R

S

aturday brought strange traffic to Kinder Morgan’s Westridge Marine oil tanker port, as two North Shore First Nations put paddle to water to protest the company’s plans for pipeline expansion. The on-the-water ceremony was the culmination of a canoe journey that saw dozens of paddlers from both the Squamish and TsleilWaututh nations shove off from West Vancouver’s Ambleside Park and traverse the inlet under police and harbour patrol escort to the tanker port at North Burnaby. The boats carried copies of a declaration that would later be signed by chiefs from the two nations, affirming their opposition to both increased industry on Burrard Inlet and to increased tanker traffic on the south coast B.C. waters known collectively as the Salish Sea. “It is a desire of Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh to work cooperatively in a mutually supportive manner to stop Kinder Morgan’s proposal to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline which terminates at the Burrard Inlet and to stop increased oil tanker traffic in the Salish Sea,” the declaration read in part. It’s the second anti-pipeline document signed by the Tsleil-Waututh in as many months, after the nation ratified the Save the Fraser Declaration banning oil sands pipelines from First Nations lands on July 7. Hundreds gathered at North

Vancouver’s Cates Park to welcome the paddlers and witness the signing, including New Democrat MP Kennedy Stewart, in whose Burnaby-Douglas riding lies the tanker port and part of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline from Edmonton. “My constituents have told me loud and clear they’re very supportive of this [protest],” Stewart told The Outlook. “Here we have really historic rivals, the Squamish and the Tsleil-Waututh, coming together now against the Kinder Morgan expansion and it’s quite significant.” Stewart has applied for intervenor status at the National Energy Board’s hearings on the doubling of the Trans Mountain pipeline, a status which, if granted, would allow him to present arguments and information to the board and crossexamine fellow participants. In the meantime, Stewart is echoing federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair’s calls for a reversal of sorts on the pipeline debate. “We support pipelines flowing east across Canada,” Stewart said. “This is because 85 per cent of the oil that’s used in Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces is imported. So we’re saying that instead of exporting this oil sands oil to Asia, we should be making it flow east to keep our Canadian refineries alive in central and Atlantic Canada. “West Coast pipelines are highly questionable,” he added. If Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain twinning project is approved, it would increase the flow of oil from 300,000 barrels per day to 750,000 by 2017, and increase the size and number of tankers plying the waters of the Burrard Inlet and coastal B.C. tcoyne@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/toddcoyne

Overcoming others’ disbelief in her disability was one of the last hurdles she, like hundreds of thousands of young Canadians, had to left to climb after coming to terms with it herself. “Many don’t feel disabled enough,” Minton tells The Outlook in a Lonsdale Avenue coffee shop. “Because arthritis is invisible, you don’t accept it.” But the fact is arthritis affects more than four continued, PAGE 6

one-day strike Wednesday saw 27,000 unionized government workers walk off the job in a bid to apply more pressure in negotiations with the province. Courts, jails, ICBC offices and government liquor stores were among more than 1,700 affected worksites, although essential JOB ACTION - BCGEU president services will be maintained. Darryl Walker speaks as COPE The Sept. 5 job action was president David Black watches. ordered by leaders of the B.C. BCGEU on Flickr. Government and Service Employees Union (BCGEU), the Professional Employees Association and the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union. “We do not take this action lightly,” said BCGEU president Darryl Walker. “There will be no more falling behind for government workers.” The BCGEU is seeking a 3.5-per-cent pay hike this year and a cost of living increase in 2013, following the expiry of its last contract on March 31. The province had offered two per cent in the first year and 1.5 per cent in the second – a package Victoria has since taken off the table. The union contends its members lost ground against inflation over the past two years due to the previous contract signed in 2010 under a net-zero mandate as B.C. was struggling to recover from recession. “We took two zeros in 2010 and 2011 that really look at a wage cut of around five per cent when you look at the cost of living,” Walker said. The government has countered it made a fair and reasonable offer given that B.C. remains under fiscal pressure due to the lacklustre global economy. Smaller single-day strikes have been staged at more selective public sector targets earlier this summer. The BCGEU has also proposed fiscal reforms such as Sunday liquor store openings and the use of sheriffs for traffic enforcement.

It’s fitting then that the Arthritis Society chose September’s backto-school season for Arthritis Awareness Month. “One of the biggest myths out there is that this is an ‘old person’s’ disease,� said Arthritis Society spokeswoman Joan Vyner in a press release last week. “The fact is that arthritis is one of the leading causes of disability in Canada.� For Minton, the stress of going back to school and the painfully repetitive motions of note-taking in class fueled her illness, she recalled. “It’s a rough time to have arthritis but there are resources out there.� The problem for most is building up the courage and the know-how to access them. “Many people don’t feel disabled enough to use the disability centre at the university,� Minton said. “That arthritis was a disability took me a while to get my head around. But once I did, it made a world of

difference for the rest of university.� Minton now organizes monthly meet-ups for young arthritis sufferers in Vancouver where they discuss day-to-day challenges like riding a transit bus or going to work and ways to overcome them. More than a quarter of all Canadians with arthritis between the ages of 25 and 44 don’t work because of the disease, costing the Canadian economy more than $33 billion in health-care costs and lost work days every year, according to the Arthritis Society. “If we don’t get people to pay attention, the problem is going to get far worse.� said Vyner. “We have to educate people about the disease.� The Lions Gate Hospital is partnering with the Arthritis Society to host a free public forum discussing the disease from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6 in the Lions Gate Hospital gym.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a question Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never before considered, but when 89-year-old Jean Hamilton asked, the answer was clear: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not nearly enough.â&#x20AC;?

Anyone who thinks privatizing ICBC is the answer to higher rates must not have taken a look at comparable auto insurance coverage or the even more excessive executive salaries in the private sector. Independent studies by Statistics Canada and the Consumers Association of Canada have shown public auto insurance gives the best value to customers. Since ICBC was established on March 1, 1974, British Columbians have enjoyed reduced insurance fraud, safer roads and lower rates. Part of this is because, ICBC was designed to operate on a non-profit, break-even basis. So where is the real issue? Executive salaries at ICBC are too high and should be dealt with, but that’s only exacerbated in the private sector. The biggest problem at ICBC, is that the government hasn’t stayed true to ICBC’s break-even mandate. Christy Clark’s government is treating ICBC as their cash cow, raiding over $1.2 billion from the corporation’s coffers even as they ask ICBC workers to continue their wage freeze and B.C. drivers to pay higher insurance premiums. That money isn’t even going into improving roads or transportation – it’s going into general revenue.

If there are any savings coming out of the government review, how do we know they won’t just be funneled right back into government coffers? British Columbians need to know savings will be used to reduce rates for drivers and keep the unionized workforce at ICBC from falling further behind. When Manitoba’s public insurer was found to have overcharged its customers, they gave everyone a rebate. The government’s mismanagement of ICBC hurts both their employees and B.C. drivers. Siphoning off ICBC’s profits was never what was intended for our public insurance corporation. Jeff Gillies, COPE 378 Vice-President

t’s the time of the year when collector car owners everywhere pull out the Turtle Wax to polish their chrome for show-and-shine events. Recently, a small group of enthusiasts gathered in North Vancouver to toast one of the rarer breeds of automobiles. The Lower Mainland Vega Club got a perfect sunny day for its 23rd annual Vega Club Picnic event at Waterfront Park. And as they popped their hoods and fired up the grill, it was only a matter of moments before classic car lovers started to appear with their cameras to snap photos with some of the sexiest car models from the 1970s.

But not so fast. There is one more thing to be wary of when dealing with chardonnay: Like other white wines, chardonnay needs to be served at the proper temperature. Unlike sauv blanc, which can taste good right out of the freezer, this more finicky grape is often best served a bit warmer. continued, PAGE 11

TASTE TEST - Last week, Chris Sharpe of Everything Wine in North Vancouver, led an hour-long session on chardonnay wines. Michaela Garstin photo

“I often hear people say ‘I really like this wine when I get down to the last 10 per cent.’ That’s because it probably should have been served seven degrees warmer,” says Chris Sharpe, a wine specialist at Everything Wine in North Vancouver. “The use of inexpensive oak can give it a fake taste that’s not that great,” he adds after leading an hour-long lesson on the ins-and-outs of chardonnay. Three factors will contribute to the taste of your bottle of chardonnay, he says. 1) The weather 2) The grape variety 3) Its terroir — the characteristics of where the wine is grown, such as climate and slope of the vineyard. To avoid disappointment, all these aspects need to be taken into consider-

ation when picking your next bottle. If it’s a not-too-heavily oaked chardonnay you’re after for the next dinner party, here are a few recommendations: Bodega Cantena Zapata Almos Chardonnay 2009 - Argentina $14.99 This reasonably priced wine has peach, butterscotch and herb notes, with a subtle taste of vanilla. It’s a less expensive version of the 2008 Catena Alta Chardonnay, which is produced by the same vineyard and goes for $39.99. “You’d find this quality chardonnay at about twice the price in California or Burgundy,” says Sharpe while carefully pouring a glass of the Alta at the tasting seminar.

McGuigan Bin 7000 Chardonnay 2010 - Australia $17.99 For those who like a bit of oak, this medium-bodied wine will do the trick. Its fruit-driven taste with notes of peach and citrus balance well with the slight oak influence. It is best paired with seafood, especially lightly buttered scallops, or cream-based dishes. Foxtrot Chardonnay 2010 - British Columbia $54.99 Hailed as one of B.C.’s best, this chardonnay has aromas of citrus, tropical fruits and vanilla with subtle hazelnut. Light green apple and pineapple flavours make it a perfect pairing with West Coast seafood dinners. “Top restaurants always have this in stock because it pairs well with our local food,” Sharpe says. Like other B.C. chardonnays, he predicts this one will cellar well for five to six years.

Persian flavours

Ayoub Hosseini, owner of Ayoub`s Dried Fruits & Nuts. Rob Newell photo

Competition among central Lonsdale’s Persian restaurants and shops can be tough, but newcomers prove the market is still growing By Michaela Garstin

P

irashki, a sweet round Persian pastry, is just one of 70 different sweets lined in tidy rows at Jalal Darvishi’s bakery in North Vancouver. Its custard filling, freshly made and piping hot, has a hint of rose water, a distinctive flavour made with rose petals commonly found in Iranian cuisine. The popular doughy dessert originated in Russia, but when it arrived in Iran bakers were quick to switch the original meat and cabbage filling with something sweet. “And now we’re changing it again to suit the Canadian market,” Darvishi tells The Outlook over warm pirashki and coffee at Golestan Bakery in the 1500-block of Lonsdale Avenue. To appeal to health-conscious Canadians, he makes the pastry cholesterol free and eases up on the sugar. Sitting in front of small cookie pyramids while dressed in a white chef’s jacket, Darvishi is clearly an experienced baker. He learned the trade at his parents’ bakery in Tehran, Iran at a time when there weren’t any pastry schools in the Middle Eastern country. Fast forward 20 years: Darvishi has carried on his family’s culinary traditions while incorporating modern touches and European techniques. He opened Golestan Bakery two years ago in central Lonsdale, surrounded by other Persian restaurants and shops. With three other Persian bakeries nearby, Darvishi doesn’t mind the competition. “I have to make the best food with the best quality ingredients and really listen to what my customers want,” he says, adding they demand a wide variety of pastries, including gluten-free and vegan cookies. After scouting out locations for his bakery, Darvishi settled

on Lonsdale because of its central location and large IranianCanadian population. But his business cannot survive off Persian customers alone. He estimates around 60 per cent of his customers are non-Persians who enjoy his European-influenced baking or traditional Iranian desserts, especially baklava, layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with honey. “We try to be very welcoming. There are people who come here for coffee every day to see us, when they could be having a drink at any coffee shop on Lonsdale.” says Darvishi, referring to a woman who just popped in to grab a cup. The bakery’s business hours — he’s open to 10 p.m. every night — could also be a reason for his success. Little Iran The North Shore has seen a burst of new shops offering Persian food and ingredients pop up over the last few years, including grocery stores, kebab restaurants and a tea house. But the busiest area is central Lonsdale, from 13th to 19th street, where more than a dozen Iranian shops sit, often replacing old businesses that couldn’t survive tough economic times. To market North Van to tourists, Lonsdale Avenue was dubbed “Little Iran” in pamphlets for the 2010 Olympics. And the cluster of stores in one of the North Shore’s most bustling communities isn’t a coincidence. According to Statistic Canada’s 2006 census, 10 per cent of North Vancouverites are IranianCanadian and, other than English, Farsi is the most common mother tongue by far, beating runner-up languages including continued, PAGE 13

Child Care

Appropriately enough, it was Bubs Lakey – the only player remaining from the team’s senior “B” days – who was the hitting star. She contributed seven hits (almost one-third of the team’s total of 24) over the three games. Shirley Topley had five hits including a three-run homer in the opener. Ev Bonneville pitched the first and third games, giving up just nine hits. Awilda “Willie” Minette won the second-game shutout, a five-hitter. Not long afterwards, due to the high costs of travel and other expenses, Crowhurst Motors had to withdraw their sponsorship. Players drifted away to other teams. The Crowhursts era was over. Bubs retired from the game. She now lives in White Rock where she and Bill (who passed away last year) lived most of their married life. “I could bunt and get to the base on time; an awful lot of my hits were bunts,” she recalls, thinking back more than half a century to her timely hitting in Victoria. Then she offers another little story. “That was the time when I was expecting because I started throwing up on the bench. All of a sudden I realized, ‘Hey, there’s something going on here, what was it?’” She laughs at the memory. Her daughter Lee was born in 1958. “Bobby Peters was our coach for six years when we won. He was a really good coach, one of the best you’ll ever get. [Giving signals] he never flipped his hands or arms around. He did it all by his feet. It was where he stood in the [coach’s] box. It was really smart because nobody could read his hand signals because he wasn’t really making them. If he’d stand on the main line you were to bunt right and if he was on the back line you bunted left.” And if he was standing in the middle? “Then you hit.” So what about her Emberly and Robinson names growing up? “When I was just about a year and a half old, my dad [25-year-old Allan Emberly] went out fishing in Lynn Canyon, fell and drowned. The boots they fill up with water and you can’t get out. He was by himself. It was Depression time so he was trying to get some food I guess. “That was on the first of June [1933] and Bob [Bubs’ brother] was born on the 10th of June, my mother’s birthday. So we were Emberlys. Mom got

Try it at home: Sabzi Polo This popular Persian side dish tastes best when made with fresh herbs and goes well with chicken or fish.

sleep

Ingredients: -6 cups water -4 cups uncooked long-grain white rice -3 tablespoons vegetable oil -1/2 cup water -1 bunch fresh dill, chopped -1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped -1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped -2 cups fresh or frozen fava beans -ground turmeric to taste -ground cinnamon to taste -1 teaspoon salt -1 teaspoon pepper

shape see

Directions: 1. Bring water to a boil in a large sauce pan. Rinse rice and stir into boiling water. Boil just until rice rises to the surface of the water. Drain rice and return it to the saucepan. Stir in the oil and water. Mix in the dill, parsley, cilantro, fava beans, turmeric, cinnamon, salt and pepper. 2. Cook the rice over medium heat for five minutes. 3. Reduce heat to the lowest setting. Cover and simmer for 40 to 45 minutes. It’s normal (and delicious) to end up with crispy rice, called tadig, on the bottom of the pot after cooking.

first or after your weights. Well the simple answer is always do your cardio after your weights. The reason - Unless your goal is to be an endurance athlete doing your cardio first will zap all your energy and consquently will give you a lacklustre performace on your bench press or whatever you had lined up that day. Think of it like this. I got you to run 20km and then had you compete against a guy on squats who just showed up. Who do you think would lift more? So remember nothing wrong with a little 5-10min cardio warm up but leave the cardio session to the end and try not to exceed more than 45 min and get a good sweat going but dont give it 100%. Its all about keeping muscle! Better yet split up your weight and cardio sessions if your schedule allows. More tips at Popeyes North Van facebook
