West Van library ahead of the game Preloaded e-books, free music, CDs and DVDs help keep visitors coming back MICHAELA GARSTIN S TA F F R E P O RT E R
he results are in: The West Vancouver Library has the highest circulation per hour open out of every library in B.C. Its success is due to a combination of lending preloaded e-readers, downloadable music, CDs and other technology-related services and traditional book borrowing, said the library’s chairwoman Marcia Bergen at a council meeting on Sept. 10. In fact, the library was the first in Canada to offer e-readers when it launched a Kindle lending program two years ago. Now 20 of 42 B.C. libraries have adopted the program. But that’s not all. Smartphones can now be used to check-out books and other material. “This seems to be important to the younger generation, only because [they] are not unknown to lose or forget their library cards but are unlikely to forget their smartphones,” Bergen said. When asked by Coun. Bill Soprovich whether the library has seen a peak in visitors due to the popularity of online access, Bergen noted in-person library visits continue to increase. In 2011, 905,000 people visited the library, either in person or
online. This is up five per cent over the year before. In November 2011, 50,000 people walked through the doors, making it the busiest month since January 1997. Around 1,700 people visit the library on a given weekday. “It’s a sign of the depth of our physical collections. We are very aware that visitors from other library systems within the Lower Mainland find items in our collection that they’re unable to find in their home libraries,” said Bergen. The library needs to find a balance between offering children online services and making sure they still appreciate reading a physical book, she added. Seniors continue to play a big part in the library’s business, added Bergen, noting that books, CDs, magazines, puzzles and other items are delivered by truck to seniors who can’t get to the library easily. The West Van Library has also made an effort to become more environmentally friendly, receiving LEED existing building silver certification. Over the last five years, the library has seen electric consumption drop 34 per cent, gas 42 per cent and water 68 per cent. To top this off, a third less solid waste is picked up every week. email@example.com

CNV hunting for new bus depot location City wants TransLink to abandon plans to leave North Van in 2015 without an alternative site TODD COYNE S TA F F R E P O RT E R
he City of North Vancouver is once again asking TransLink to abandon plans to shutter its North Vancouver Transit Centre and instead build a new bus depot on the North Shore. The unanimously approved motion came Monday as delegates from the Canadian Autoworkers Union and the Amalgamated Transit Union — which operate both buses and SeaBuses — asked council to find a site for a new transit depot and block TransLink from leaving North Vancouver in 2015. That’s when the regional transit provider plans to move its fleet of 82 buses from the Third Street depot to Burnaby, where they would begin and end their usual North Shore service each day. But CAW Local 111 representative Raj Janjua told council 95 per cent of drivers doing North Shore routes live on the North Shore already and don’t want the added commute. Council agreed, saying operators traveling to Burnaby each morning only

to turn around and drive an empty bus back home — and then repeat the trip at the end of the day — flies in the face of both TransLink’s and the city’s stated commitments to green transportation. “TransLink seems to be saying, ‘Do as I say but not as I do,’” said Coun. Linda Buchanan. “We’re asking our communities to get out of their cars and spend less time in their cars, and yet we’re asking these drivers to drive across the bridge and back so they can pick up the people in our community who’ve made that choice that we’ve asked them to. It seems a bit ludicrous to me.” TransLink is expected to come before city council to discuss the possibility or impossibility of establishing another transit centre on the North Shore, be it pairing with West Vancouver’s Blue Bus depot on Lloyd Avenue adjacent to the ICBC centre, or establishing a separate depot somewhere else. “ICBC is a provincial agency and now I hear that if you don’t pay your TransLink ticket you’re not going to not be able to renew your licence,” said Coun. Craig Keating. “So clearly TransLink and ICBC have something going on the side when they want to. Here’s a great opportunity where they should be working together to try to find a site.” Coun. Rod Clark said sharing Capilano University’s parking facilities could be another solution as the parking lots are empty at night. Other sites suggested by the mayor and council included some waterfront property near Cargill and a lot behind the Grant Connell Tennis Centre. However, all of these properties are in the District of North Vancouver, so any decision on them would chiefly concern district council. firstname.lastname@example.org twitter.com/toddcoyne

or more than 30 years, the Coho Society of the North Shore has been celebrating the return of coho salmon to local rivers and streams. This annual September event is marked by a community wide celebration at Ambleside Park that includes the Coho Walk/Run and the very popular salmon barbecue, which brings out dozens of community leaders who volunteer their time to cook up a storm. Display booths, live music, entertainment and more are all part of the day which goes to promote the preservation of the salmonoid species while raising awareness about the importance of protecting the delicate water habitats across the North Shore. Big thanks to Dee Gandhi for his photo help. B Mieka Halliday Gunn, left, Ian Gunn and Graeme Halliday Gunn get the award for most festive outfits as they show their colourful spirit. C With their salmon flippers crossed in preparation, West Vancouver fire chief Jim Cook and West Vancouver Chamber executive director Leagh Gabriel get ready to feed the crowd.

The new corner store To stay afloat, North Shore corner store owners are changing the way they do business. And that's good news for the neighbourhood
BY MICHAELA GARSTIN
e all grew up with a neighbourhood corner store. It was a place to spend our allowance on penny candy, chocolate bars and pop. Or, if they ran out of a household essential, our parents would quickly stop by. Often, the same family ran the store for decades, living right upstairs or in a nearby house. The decor hadn’t changed in years, but that didn’t matter because new goodies were always in stock. In many North Shore neighbourhoods, however, a different kind of corner store is popping up. Attempting to boost business, new owners are changing traditional convenience stores into cafés and delis, while keeping the most popular go-to items on the shelves “You have to offer including, of course, candy. something very Their corner stores, unique...” they say, couldn’t survive without offering Pooran Aga coffee, baked goods Cypress Market owner and sandwiches, which can account for up to 80 per cent of business. It’s a situation Pooran Aga has faced first hand. While working at Cypress Park Market in West Vancouver, she figured the owners could attract more customers if they ventured
beyond a typical general store. So, after buying the business from them four years ago, she built an addition out the back to house a deli and coffee shop. “We have people who come here all the way from Coquitlam just for our chili. You have to offer something very unique so people will come in,” Aga says after a regular customer stops to ask if she made his favourite salad that morning. Cypress Park Market & Cafe, which is located along the 4300-block of Marine Drive near Caulfeild, seems like an ordinary corner store at the front, lined with grocery shelves and candy jars. But a full-service coffee shop sits at the back, along with tables and chairs inside and on the large deck. “Everything is homemade — the lasagna, quinoa salad with lemon and jalapeno, sausage rolls, paninis,” says Aga, as she holds out a piping-hot pan of lasagna she

cooked that morning in the store’s small kitchen. Offering just muffins and scones won’t cut it these days, she adds, since customers are often looking for a nutritious breakfast or lunch to go with their coffee. Like other corner store owners have realized, Aga says her business couldn’t survive without the loyal neighbourhood residents who stop in for a bite to eat at the deli. “You need to reinvent yourself” Back in the first half of the 20th century, North Shore residents walked to their neighbourhood general store

Voters, politicians say no thanks to new North Shore ridings B.C. commission considers the ideal riding population of 104,000. Currently, West VancouverSunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country has 133,910 constituents, North Vancouver has 127,330 and Burnaby-Douglas has 123,275. At one point during the hearing, the opponents appeared to have won a change of heart in at least one commissioner. “Speaking for myself, when I entered upon this process some months ago, I was perhaps more impressed — if I can use that terminology — with the requirement to be rather close to the median number,” said the Hon. John E. Hall, the only TODD COYNE commissioner to speak to attendees at Monday’s S TA F F R E P O RT E R meeting. “But as the months have gone by I ew voters and even fewer politicians are think I have shifted my thinking a little bit more supporting a plan to redraw the North in favour of historic and community interests; Shore’s federal electoral map, saythe commonality of interests.” ing the proposed plan just doesn’t make While a Burnaby North-Seymour sense. riding isn’t without precedent — Dozens of angry residents from the riding existed briefly in the Deep Cove to the Sunshine Coast and late 1960s and early ‘70s and was all places between came to a Monday almost resurrected in 2002 in the night hearing of the Federal Electoral face of overwhelming opposition — Boundaries Commission for B.C., today, residents on both sides of the complaining that plans to redraw the Burrard Inlet say Burnaby and North region’s vote map ignore natural comVancouver share little if anything munity ties and boundaries. more than proximity to the bridge at Coun.

approximately 11,000 homes called, 7,000 answered the phone and approximately 1,000 answered the question of whether or not they supported the formation of the Burnaby North-Seymour riding. “About 165 supported the redistricting proposal, 609 were against it and 233 were undecided,” Stewart told the commissioners Monday. “When you take out the undecided responses, you have about 79 per cent of the North Vancouver residents against this proposal with about 21 per cent supporting.” The new riding would also cut off the Squamish Nation’s Seymour Creek reserve in the east from its Capilano and Mission reserves to the west, weakening the nation’s representation over both ridings. Coun. Bell has served in almost every elected office in North Vancouver, from school board chair to North Van district mayor to Liberal MP from 2004 to 2008. In 2002, he appeared before the same commission looking to establish a Burnaby North-Seymour riding and then, as now, he opposed the idea. “I think that there’s more motivation to do it this time,” Bell told The Outlook in a phone interview Monday. “And I think the Seymour area will suffer when it’s linked with North Burnaby because there isn’t a geographic similarity there, nor is there a sense of community demographically.” Coun. Bassam agreed, saying the two communities often differ on issues like the proposed twinning of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline in Burnaby, which “one community might be looking at as jobs and economics, whereas the other might be looking at its environmental impacts.” Or, as Burnaby resident and transit driver Albert Melenius told the commission Monday: “They have different industries and different incomes, different social mixes and even different weather.” More damaging still, Bassam said, is the further voter disenfranchisement the new arrangement could bring to those roughly 30,000 North Van residents who would join the predominantly Burnabycentric riding. “What should be more concerning for us is the sentiment that people think at the end of the day it
doesn’t really matter because the politicians aren’t accountable to the local people anyways because they all follow the party line,” Bassam told The Outlook in a phone interview Monday. “So it really becomes a matter of are you going to get someone who’s philosophically aligned with you as a result of this or not?” That may sound abstract, but if the last federal election were run again with the Burnaby NorthSeymour riding in play, in all likelihood Kennedy Stewart would not be MP. “I don’t think it’s politically motivated but it does have political realities,” is how Coun. Bell put it. In the 2011 election, Stewart beat his Conservative rival for the Burnaby-Douglas seat with 21,000 votes to his opponent’s 20,000. In fact, the past four Burnaby-Douglas elections have gone NDP with a margin of just 1,000 votes. Recall the 2011 election in North Van, however, when Conservative MP Andrew Saxton beat the Liberal candidate 29,000 ballots to 18,000, with the New Democrat candidate scoring under 10,000. With even some of those North Van Conservative and Liberal ballots in play in Burnaby, the election outcome could be much different. “It’s a big swing,” Stewart told The Outlook. “If they replay the last election, instead of winning by two per cent, I would have lost by seven. That’s a big swing.” In an e-mail to The Outlook Tuesday, MP Saxton said his preference “would be to continue serving the people of North Vancouver with the current boundaries, however, given the population growth on the North Shore in recent years and the need for new seats in British Columbia, I recognize the status quo is not an option.” The B.C. federal electoral boundaries commission’s next public hearing concerning the possible Burnaby North-Seymour riding is in Burnaby on Oct. 18, the last date of hearings for all affected communities. The commission will then discuss its findings before making their final recommendations to the House of Commons.

Muranko, who is also part German and French, didnâ€™t start out in First Nations dance, but always enjoyed cultural performance, whether from Japan or Africa. â€œBeing a prima ballerina isnâ€™t the only way. There are other ways to express yourself,â€? says Muranko, who started ballet when she was just three years old and took a break before studying contemporary dance at SFU in her late-20s. She has since toured to New Zealand and Peru and has had her choreographed work presented locally at the Talking Stick Festival and the Vancouver International Dance Festival. â€œAboriginal dance is a way to connect with our culture, land and traditions,â€? she says. â€œThere isnâ€™t a separation of singing, dance and rhythm like there is in other forms of dance â€” itâ€™s together and you need to know it all.â€? Whatâ€™s next for the North Van dancer? She will soon be working with traditional and contemporary dancers in Lima, Peru as part of a cultural exchange with Canada.

Take a surprise trip with Trolley Dances Audiences taken by bus to secret landmark locations for unique cultural dances and performance art MICHAELA GARSTIN
North Vancouver Community Arts Council Presents:
S TA F F R E P O RT E R
rolley Dances is kicking off its first season on the North Shore, highlighting four top-secret cultural and historical spots through music and dance. Modeled after a popular San Diego art adventure, ticket holders won’t know which dancers are performing until right before the trollies roll out Sept. 30. “Most times performance art is in buildings so people have to pay, making it exclusive,” says Linda Feil, executive director of the North Vancouver Community Arts Council. Although people have to pay to get on the trollies, she says, the dances are all done outside so anyone who stumbles across a performance can pop in for free. “This non-traditional way of performing interjects into their day something they will never foresee happening.” And this sense of surprise is what drew Feil to Trolley Dances in the first place. She was immediately interested in the movement when she heard about it at a conference in San Diego. For 14 years, a dance company there has taken riders to different locations throughout the city, surprising them with different forms of contemporary performance. Trolley Dances on the North Shore, however, will be a bit different. Because the historical red buses, which are being provided by the Vancouver Trolley Company, aren’t on tracks like in San Diego, the performances can take place anywhere. Instead of taking place inside buildings, every show will be at outdoor spots that specifically relate to the dance groups. And since the event is put on by the North Van Arts Council, the performances could be done by any group, not just ones from a specific company. So what can Feil reveal about the secret dancers? Each group will be culturally diverse, she says, adding that

Earlier this year Cochrane approached the District of North Vancouver for permission to obtain a food-primary licence from the province, which would allow her to serve a glass of wine, beer or cider along with meals. With the unanimous backing of council, she is now seeking approval from the province, a process that will likely take a few months. “When we opened, I didn’t want to sell cigarettes (like the previous owners). It wasn’t something I wanted in our community store, but it was also the biggest revenue stream,” says Cochrane, adding that the food-primary licence would expand her menu options and help her stay in business.
A group of moms took a petition for the foodprimary licence door-to-door in Pemberton Heights and within a week had 600 signatures, she says. If she gets the go-ahead, a glass of wine could be served with her expanded menu, which might include burgers, mac and cheese and butter chicken. Corner store owners never had an easy ride, Cochrane says, even back in the early 20th century when neighbours relied on them for their daily shopping. “We all had corner stores as kids. We knew the owner’s name. This shouldn’t have to change, as long as we keep up with the times and are willing to change the way we serve customers.” firstname.lastname@example.org twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin
