Allegations of infighting pit rescuer against rescuer A lawyer representing North Shore Rescue is accusing the local firefighters’ union of discouraging its members from volunteering TODD COYNE S TA F F R E P O RT E R

N

orth Shore Rescue is accusing the North Vancouver district firefighters’ union of discouraging its members from joining the allvolunteer search and rescue team, an allegation the union flatly denies. In a letter sent to The Outlook Tuesday, North Shore Rescue team leader Tim Jones said he’s aware of “repeated complaints” that at least one member of the North Vancouver district firefighters’ union — IAFF Local 1183 — has discouraged

other members and those in other Locals from joining or remaining a volunteer with North Shore Rescue. But union president Brian Leavold said the allegations are “simply false.” “We have no problem with North Shore Rescue,” Leavold told The Outlook in a phone interview Tuesday, saying he wasn’t even aware of the complaint until he received a letter from a lawyer representing the volunteer rescue squad. “We [the district firefighters’ union] have no members in North Shore Rescue. We have never told anybody not to join North Shore Rescue or quit North Shore Rescue. I don’t know where he got those allegations and I’ve worked for the district firefighters for 30 years. “There may be another department out there or something,” Leavold continued. “But it’s certainly not us.” Asked whether he believed the union leader’s denial, the lawyer representing NSR replied: “Absolutely not.”

Labour and employment lawyer Greg Heywood said the current complaint from a North Vancouver city firefighter is just the latest in a string of accusations of bullying against IAFF Local 1183 members for allegedly pressuring other firefighters to abandon their extra-curricular rescue activities. “It’s been an issue with this for a number of years,” Heywood told The Outlook in a phone interview Tuesday. “We had two firefighters from West Vancouver and one from North Vancouver district resign [from NSR] over this.” Heywood said that because the city firefighter at the centre of the recent complaints is a senior executive board member with NSR, he has “attracted the complaints of [the] North Vancouver District [firefighters’ union] more so than anyone else.” Heywood cited a “twisted version of work jurisdiction” between on-duty district firefighters and the volunteer rescuers as a likely source of the alleged friction between the two camps, something Leavold denied. “Mr. Heywood’s false and unfortunate allegations do not alter my view of North Shore Rescue, which does good work and with which IAFF Local 1183 has no problems working alongside during emergency response situations,” Leavold said. While NSR leader Tim Jones was unavailable for comment Tuesday due to his duties as a paramedic, he wrote in the letter that North Shore Rescue’s success in saving lives depends heavily upon the skills of its volunteers from the firefighting and emergency medical fields. “Fire departments and the ambulance service provide a rich pool of potential volunteers because of their high degree of training in life-saving techniques,” Jones said. “[T]he loss of current IAFF members would be a significant blow to the team.” tcoyne@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/toddcoyne

City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto walked to work on Tuesday. It’s a fairly short commute — around 12 minutes to city hall — but it gave him a chance to leave his smart car parked in the driveway and get some exercise while chatting with some residents along the way. He’s hoping other North Shore residents will join him in leaving their cars at home — for at least one trip a week, whether that be walking to get groceries or biking to work or taking the SeaBus downtown. To help residents go car-free once a week, the City of North Vancouver, along with the districts of North and West Vancouver, have teamed with TravelSmart, an organization dedicated to encouraging people to make more sustainable travel choices. “I think it’s a great idea,” said Mussatto of the TravelSmart program. Of course, it will be easier for some to get out of their cars. Mussatto has embraced alternate methods of transportation for years, usually walking or biking to

That could be walking to a friend’s house, carpooling to your kid’s soccer game or biking or taking public transit to a movie. As the momentum builds, try something else. Mussatto believes that if all North Shore residents make the car-free pledge, it will have a significant results in increasing community health and reducing traffic congestion, a problem that plagues the North Shore. “People will be healthier. It takes cars off the road [and] reduces our carbon footprint.” And if more people get out of their vehicles “we don’t have to build more bridges or lanes,” he adds.

Known for being a festival of substance, the event featured more than 380 films from around the world organized into series like Canadian Images, Dragons & Tigers, International Shorts and Cinema of Our Time.

Laneway living Small backyard houses are transforming the way people live in North Van By MICHAELA GARSTIN

P

utting up just a shed in the backyard won’t do it for Josh Henderson. The small, self-contained house he’s building off the lane has vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and two bedrooms. It’s completely separate from his family’s home at the front of the yard and will eventually be taken over by his motherin-law. Like several other homeowners in North Vancouver, Henderson is opting for a coach house (also known as a granny flat, laneway or carriage housing) instead of a basement suite. His 1,000-square-foot coach house on East 10th Street began to take shape in just one day, the base put in quickly and prefab walls nailed together. Nearing completion six months later, the

house’s style mirrors the original house which, according to city bylaws, helps it blend into the neighbourhood better. “We wanted [design] symmetry between our house and the coach house, but it’s still a completely separate place to live,” says Henderson, who hired North Van-based Ajia Canadian Building Systems to design and build the house and is doing some of the smaller work himself. The open concept kitchen, dining room and living room make the space feel bigger than it actually is, he tells The Outlook on a tour. Dark hardwood floors and kitchen cabinets are being installed, along with fixtures in the downstairs washroom and laundry area. Upstairs, the finishing touches are being added to the master bedroom and a smaller room that

could be used as either a nursery or a den. Henderson predicts building a coach house like this would cost around $250,000. “We had to put in a bay window and an overhang to add weight,” says Henderson, referring to City of North Vancouver building codes that regulate everything from the size of coach houses to their location on the lot to the colour of the trim. “It can be a long process, you just have to be organized and provide everything [to council] that’s needed so there’s no confusion,” he says while scanning his website northvancoachhouse. com, which chronicles his experience and provides tips to anyone looking to build their own. continued, NEXT PAGE

For Henderson, building a coach house is an ideal way to maximize use of his land. “I used to live in a 400-square-foot apartment downtown. When I moved in here, I knew I didn’t need all this space. Why not use it for something useful?” And, following the lead of Vancouver and other Lower Mainland communities, that’s exactly what the City of North Vancouver is hoping will happen. With the ever-increasing cost of houses in North Van and the dwindling number of rental units, coach houses are meant to provide alternate, affordable places to live. So far, around 25 have been built in North Van, with more on the way. “It’s a good investment for us too because it will allow my mother-in-law to move in and be close to us, and it increases our house value,” says Henderson, as landscapers and carpenters maneuver around him on the busy construction site. “I’m lucky to live in a community that allows coach homes to be built.” Not just a cheap box

It took 13 months for David Crawford to get a permit and go through a public hearing before construction of his coach house could begin. Patience is required for the long application process, he says, but the end result is worth it. “You can’t just build a cheap box in your backyard,” he warns, adding the city of North Van is involved in every step of the process. “It’s a good investment, but be prepared to spend about $30,000 before you start building for things like architect fees, building permits and upgrading water and sewer supplies.” Like Henderson, Crawford is building a Level-B Coach House which, unlike Level-A houses, requires a long application process and approval from council. Level-B houses are bigger than Level-A houses (up to 1,000 square feet) and can be built 1.6 storeys high. But these requirements aren’t set in stone. Council approved a 1,490-square-foot coach house in March, the additional space being in the cellar

Back alley living - David Crawford’s coach house in the backyard looks similar to his family’s home, only smaller. Michaela Garstin photo to house a 10,000-gallon rainwater collection tank. Plans for the coach house faced criticism from the public, some of whom thought the size, which is 490 square feet larger than the guidelines, was too big for the area. But Crawford’s 1,000-square-foot, two-bedroom, 1.5 bath coach house near Grand Boulevard fits within the guidelines and, he adds, was supported by his close neighbours. It took nine months to complete at a cost of $250,000. He is renting it out for $1,900 a month and plans to have his son eventually move in, he tells The Outlook, while standing in the lane by the front door. With shrubs lining the entrance way, complete trim and moldings and a carport, the coach house looks very similar to the main residence, only smaller. “If you think you can build one easily, you can’t. It’s a long process, but still we’re very lucky to be able to build one,” says Crawford, admiring the finished project which fits into the city’s plans to create more alternative housing options. Waiting for approval

Not all homeowners on the North Shore, however, are allowed to build coach houses. The City

of North Vancouver is the only municipality that allows coach houses at this time, so residents in the districts of North and West Van are out of luck. But this could change in the coming year. North Van district is looking into allowing coach houses, but on a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood basis. Compared to the city, the district doesn’t have many lanes to build beside, which is a criteria for building in the city. There are many large lots to build on, however, which the district is considering, says Brian Bydwell, the general manager of planning, properties and permits. The district’s Official Community Plans calls for a diversity of housing to increase affordability, naming coach houses in particular. By next year, guidelines are expected to be drawn up in response to a number of people who have shown interest, Bydwell adds. West Van’s Official Community Plan also mandates more affordable housing options. “There are either houses or apartments, nothing in between,” says Stephen Mikicich, a senior community planner for the District of West Vancouver. Two pilot coach house projects were planned but construction never began because of site challenges, a neighbour complaint and personal reasons of one the homeowners. Despite setbacks, community planners expect to present a policy option to council next spring, adds Mikicich, a move council would like to see happen quickly. “We really need the development community to step up with some projects,” said Mayor Michael Smith, following a unanimous council vote in June in support of exploring coach houses in West Van. Since public consultations have already been done, Smith and other members of council would like coach houses approved as soon as possible. Henderson and Crawford, the owners of the two coach houses in the City of North Van, are happy to get a head start. “It’s not cheap to live in North Van, land alone can easily cost $800,000,” says Crawford, flipping through photos of the construction. “Coach houses are a good utilization of land without putting too much strain on the neighbourhood, if they’re done well.”

The big revenue drains include a $144-million drop in TransLink’s gas tax take from its 17 centa-litre levy and an expectation the Golden Ears Bridge will raise $38 million less in tolls from 2013 to 2015. Steves and Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan both said TransLink underestimated how much operating cash flow the Canada Line would consume. Corrigan said TransLink planners were also “badly wrong” about how many drivers would pay to cross the Golden Ears Bridge after giving assurances traffic volumes would be much higher. “Now the expectations have been consistently reduced every budget and we’re paying more to deal with the Golden Ears Bridge.” Corrigan said he fears the Evergreen Line to

Instead of terminating at Lougheed Station it will only go to Braid and the buses will run less frequently than the promised 10-minute service at off-peak times. Corrigan asked why the bus service doesn’t simply connect to SkyTrain at King George Station in Surrey, noting Vancouver-bound highway buses from South Surrey/White Rock were diverted to Bridgeport Station once the Canada Line opened. “I have trouble figuring out how these kinds of choices are made,” he said. “Unless it’s the politics of ensuring there’s buses going across the bridge and the optics of the HOV lanes being used.” TransLink strategic planning vice-president Bob Paddon said a third of the traffic over the bridge exits for Coquitlam and predicted the

He said TransLink advanced revenue ideas like a vehicle levy or road pricing that were ultimately blocked by the province. “Unfortunately it has not been fruitful,” Paddon said. “I am hopeful we can get back to that discussion.” Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese, who backs the Highway 1 bus plan, cautioned Corrigan not to dwell on the past. “Our region’s in danger of stalling,” Froese said. “We’re not going to have the infrastructure in place as the population comes along.” The committee isn’t endorsing TransLink’s

Highway 1 buses will be in high demand. “Our analysis says we’ll have a lot of new riders,” he said. “It will draw from a market that’s not well served by transit today, that is quite car dependent.” Paddon also rejected Corrigan’s claims TransLink staff haven’t done enough to fight for improvements. He said TransLink advanced revenue ideas like a vehicle levy or road pricing that were ultimately blocked by the province. “Unfortunately it has not been fruitful,” Paddon said. “I am hopeful we can get back to that discussion.” Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese, who backs the Highway 1 bus plan, cautioned Corrigan not to dwell on the past. “Our region’s in danger of stalling,” Froese said. “We’re not going to have the infrastructure in place as the population comes along.” The committee isn’t endorsing TransLink’s

"We've made it our mission to provide a superior level of service," said Dubowits. "Preparation, for example, is a big part of what we do. A lot of customers want - need - more than just a box to carry home. Setting up a new computer is not fun for many people. It takes a lot of time and attention to detail to set up a system so that it runs the way it should. Sometimes it can take hours. We offer that service. I can safely say that a computer system set up by us is a substantially better product than one that is straight out of the box. It's substantially faster, more secure, and easier to use. We take great pride in every system we prepare." Concept's preparation services can be particularly important to customers wanting to upgrade from their old computers into something new - an idea that

alling itself “the first gallery in the country dedicated to young audiences,” the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art wants to go beyond the cutting edge of the art world when it opens its doors Saturday in North Vancouver. And it has the support of some of Canada’s most forward-thinking artists to do so. When patrons visit the gallery for the first time this weekend — through doors carved by internationally recognized Squamish carver, Xwalacktun — they’ll see new works from Maritime painter David Blackwood, photos by Ontario landscape artist Edward Burtynsky and instantreplay a sculpture by the North Shore’s LEN CORBEN » COLUMNIST own Douglas Coupland.

YOUNG AT ART - Artists for Kids director Yolande Martinello in the new Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art opening this weekend in North Vancouver. Rob Newell photo “We’re different from the Vancouver Art Gallery who just try to stay on the cutting edge,” Luchsinger said. “We do that too while trying to cater to the K-12 age group.” Named for West Vancouver visual artist Gordon A. Smith, whose donations of time and money to Artists for Kids have in part made the program possible, the new gallery will seek to connect with kids through its collection without dumbing down the works of serious “grown-up” artists. One example of this is Coupland’s

life-sized sculpture of a green army man toy called Green Soldier No. 1. The piece explores themes of war, mass-production and fractured emotions, while remaining accessible to those kids and young adults who grew up playing with plastic army men or watching them in the Toy Story movies, Luchsinger says. The gallery opening runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m with some artists in attendance. Following the opening, the gallery will be open to the public by donation from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday.

Serving it raw

Healthy convenience delivered to your door

There’s much more to raw vegan food than just salad MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

C

afé by Tao is out to prove raw vegan cuisine is much more than rabbit food. The most popular item on the menu is “The Real Lasagna,” layers of zucchini noodles, marinara sauce, nut cheese, spinach and marinated mushrooms that’s “guaranteed to make even a carnivore drool.” Or there’s the Rawkin’ Pizza made with a wheat-free sprouted buckwheat crust topped with dill nut cheese, sweet chili sauce, chiffonade kale, julienne carrots, cauliflower fleurettes and mushrooms. Agat Mathieu, the restaurant’s owner, learned to cook from her mother, who always took pride in the texture, taste and presentation of food. Although she grew up eating meat, eggs, cheese and milk — a far cry from a raw vegan diet — Mathieu applies the same cooking principles to her “raw food masterpieces.” She prepares the organic entrées, smoothies and desserts on site and sells all the ingredients to make the meals at home. The quaint restaurant, hidden behind offices at the corner of Semisch Avenue and West Esplanade in North Vancouver, opened in March as an offshoot of Mathieu’s business selling Tao Organic food products to North Shore clients. “Some people are skeptical at first, but after they try it, they come back and tell their friends,” Mathieu tells The Outlook while preparing a few of her signature creations. She places a crêpe filled with walnuts, raisins and maple syrup on the table. It looks exactly like the traditional dessert, the batter made with a mixture of coconut meat, apples, golden flax seed, dates and cinnamon. Besides being delicious, Mathieu says eating raw food has enormous health benefits. Since food heated above 180 degrees Fahrenheit loses essential enzymes, she says not cooking food is the healthier way to go.

HeAlTHy eATS - Agat Mathieu, owner of Cafe by Tao. Michaela Garstin photo

Fighting off disease is easier because the body isn’t forced to use its own enzymes to digest food, she adds. While meat and eggs were once on the list for Mathieu, she switched her diet nine years ago after a friend gave her a book about the benefits of eating raw. She says severe arthritis in her hands disappeared soon after. “Vegan food isn’t just salad. There’s no reason it shouldn’t taste great and be fun to eat,” says Mathieu, spreading creamy nut cheese (made with sprouted almonds, macadamia and pine nuts, onion, celery and dill) onto wheat-free crackers. It shouldn’t mean giving up treats either, she adds. She has 10 desserts including a sugar-free cake, made with raw chocolate on a banana and walnut crust. Or try the Maqui cake sweetened with deep-purple Chilean wine berries. Tao (pronounced dow) is a Chinese word meaning “the path,” one Mathieu hopes even hesitant carnivores will try. Café by Tao, located at 120-260 West Esplanade, is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.

were discussing doing something on their own. To get just the right flavour, the brew crew at Bridge had plenty of tastings with friends, family and industry folks. There are many taste-changing variables when it comes to making beer: from the yeast and hops to different grains to temperature and the fermentation process. “Every little piece plays into it,” they say of the 12-hour brewing process which is followed by three to four weeks of fermentation. Finally, they nailed it. “That was a good day,” recalls Stratton, a big smile on his face. Better still was the day when the trio recently sat inside El Matador and ordered three Bridge beers on tap. That night, Leigh Stratton bumped into a former high school classmate at the tapas restaurant. “I think I’m drinking your beer!” the friend enthused. “It’s quite rewarding,” says Doré about creating North Shore Pale. Next up? Later this week, Doré is planning to brew a winter seasonal. For more info about Bridge Brewing, visit bridgebrewing.com.

he West Vancouver Spuraways put up a relentless fight to claim the Provincial Cup this summer, defeating teams from around the province and ultimately winning the final game against Victoria 3-0. After defeating tough opponents from the Fraser Valley and the Interior, the Spuraways were pitted against the Island champion from the Lake Hill Soccer Association in Victoria for the Provincial Cup. “The Spuraways held true to form and dominated the match from start to finish, utilizing all 18 rostered players,” the team’s coach Steve Dewar told The Outlook over the phone. “We practiced hard all summer for this and in the end we made it.” The road to the Provincial Cup began when the U17 4 District Gold Division team was promoted GReAT SHOT - Spuraways player Nick Durrans runs past the opposing team. to the U18 Gold Division.

lects within the Metro region and the money has helped finance hundreds of new and replacement buses and SkyTrain cars. But TransLink is only allowed to spend the resulting fund on certain types of projects – mainly vehicles – and with its capital spending constrained, the transferred federal gas

tax money is stacking up faster than it’s being spent. An extra $122 million will flow in this year, lifting the total to more than $400 million. “We want to be able to spend that money reducing our carbon footprints with cycling infrastructure around the region,” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said. But the federal government two years ago removed bikerelated projects as an allowed use of the gas tax transfers.

Metro’s regional planning committee voted Friday to urge area cities to lobby Ottawa to reinstate that use. “It’s more consistent with the green agenda for the gas tax dollars,” Corrigan said. TransLink strategic planning and public affairs vice-president Bob Paddon said it was unfortunate the federal government disallowed cycling spending. But he rejected suggestions the gas tax money will go to waste, noting it is carried over each year and TransLink has more eligible spending in the works. This year TransLink is applying to use $123 million from the fund to replace hundreds of older buses, community shuttles and HandyDarts over the next three years. The federal gas tax transfer is separate from the 17 cents a litre in tax that TransLink directly levies on each litre of fuel sold in Metro Vancouver. TransLink’s currently proposed three-year base plan would pare back the amount of money going to cycling upgrades around the region. twitter.com/nsoutlook.com

Without knowing it, the way you live may increase or reduce your risk of developing breast cancer. Key ways to reduce your breast cancer risk are: The Breast Cancer • Being a healthier weight Prevention & Risk • Having a more balanced diet Assessment Clinic • Getting regular physical activity This new resource, at • Quitting smoking–or never starting BC Women’s Hospital & • Limiting the amount of alcohol you drink Health Centre, is for womwww.cbcf.org/bc en in B.C. looking to understand and reduce their risk The 4th Annual Gala of breast cancer.

EDUCATION

Become a Psychiatric Nurse in your own community There is an urgent need for more Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPN), particularly outside the urban areas of the province. And with the workforce aging – the average age of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse in BC is 47 years – the number of retirees from the profession is exceeding the number of graduates. Entry-level earnings start at $30.79/hour to $40.42/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is accredited by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC). Government student loans, Employment & Labour Market Services (ELMS), band funding & other financing options available to qualified applicants.
