Harry Jerome Public Consultation
Be Prepared! Free Emergency Preparedness Workshops
The Harry Jerome Recreation Complex has served City residents well for many years, and consists primarily of the Harry Jerome, Memorial, and Mickey McDougall recreation centres. Due to the age of the buildings, maintenance costs have increased and the facilities are less able to meet the changing needs of the community. The City is seeking public input into redevelopment options for the future Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre and adjacent public lands. Public input opportunities begin November 9th with a public opinion survey. Other opportunities include presentations, Open Houses and a Town Hall Meeting. For complete details, visit www.cnv.org. The public input process is scheduled to conclude on November 30.

N. Shore leads B.C. in fall injuries Safety council meeting looks at dealing with high-risk behaviour TODD COYNE S Ta f f R e p O RT e R
ith some of the country’s lowest infant mortality rates and highest life expectancies, it’s what North Shore residents are doing with their time in between that has local health professionals shaking their heads. According to Vancouver Coastal Health, the North Shore suffers the province’s highest rate of hospitalization from falls, both at home and recreation related. “It’s higher than in any other health authority across the province,” said VCH active living coordinator JoAnne Burleigh at the North Shore Safety Council AGM last week. The topic of the Nov. 1 meeting was ‘dealing with risk-taking behaviour,’ particularly among young people, and the keynote presentation was delivered by Lions Gate Hospital emergency physician and medical consultant for mass gathering events, Dr. Sam Gutman. “The North Shore experience is vastly different from the other hospitals in the Lower Mainland,” Gutman said. “I know the weather when I’m on a shift — and if you’ve been to Lions Gate you know there’s no windows in the emergency [room] — but I know the weather based on what’s coming in the door. So, I know when there’s ice on Grouse Mountain; I know when it’s freezing rain.” And it’s not just during the winter months that people on the North Shore
are the most accident prone. Gutman joked that his favourite time of year, despite the weather, tends to be from October to November because of the brief lull in injuries it affords as people who live and recreate on the North Shore transition from one high-risk sport to another. “It’s the only two-month period when it’s quiet. There’s less mountain biking, there’s no snowboarding. The number of risk behaviours drops precipitously and we actually see it in our volumes of patients,” Gutman said. “But I know that by the third weekend of November, I’m going to start seeing broken wrists and concussions from the slopes and I know that probably around March or April I’m going to start seeing mountain bike injuries.” From the latter category, Gutman said 53 per cent of mountain bike injuries happen to those 20-39 years old, with 81 per cent of injuries occurring in males. Young men are especially hardwired hardwired to take risks and put themselves in danger, Gutman said, comparing a young man’s compulsion towards careless behaviour with an addiction to drugs or gambling. “Physiologically they are impelled to do this. It’s not even a choice situation,” Gutman told the health-and-safety gathering. “It’s evolutionarily adaptive,” he continued. “When the young male is doing preening behaviour or trying to attract a mate or trying to survive to procreate the next generation, being able to go out and attack that tiger is an adaptive thing. And the ones who aren’t very good at continued, PAGE 8

Pipeline expansion won’t bring bigger tankers to Burrard Inlet: spokesman TODD COYNE S Ta f f R e P O RT e R
f Kinder Morgan is granted approval to twin its Trans Mountain pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, the project won’t bring bigger oil tankers to Burrard Inlet, just many more of them. Mike Davies of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project made that promise to The Outlook Saturday at a North Vancouver public information session. It was there he was tasked with the difficult job of convincing North Vancouver residents to support a second pipeline to the inlet and a fivefold increase in tanker traffic off their shores. The information session was one of 37 scheduled over 60 days in communities along the existing 1,100-kilometre pipeline carrying oilsands products to the Burrard Inlet via Burnaby’s Westridge Terminal. Currently, the Kinder Morgan terminal is responsible for about three per cent of all vessel traffic through Port Metro Vancouver, which amounts to eight vessels per month, including one jet-fuel barge, two crude-oil barges and five oil tankers with a maximum capacity of 650,000 barrels each. Tankers that size are known as Aframax class vessels and, at about two and a half football fields long, these would still be the largest boats allowed to fill up at Westridge Terminal, according to Davies. However, he said, an expanded pipeline would mean a huge increase in the number of tankers, jumping from five to 25 per month, with the number of barges expected to stay the same. That would mean a total 28 vessels per month filling up at the Burnaby
terminal starting in 2017, comprising about 10 per cent of all marine traffic on the inlet. “The change is increased traffic not increased ship size, so the consequence of an accident doesn’t change,” Davies said. “But with the increased frequency, that increased frequency reflects the probability [of an accident].” However, Davies added that Kinder Morgan’s responsibility for shipping ends at the end of its Burnaby pipe. “Our strict regulatory obligation ends after the loading process,” Davies said. “Once the ship is loaded, it’s under the Canada Shipping Act which is administered by Transport Canada.” And once loaded to 90-per-cent capacity, the hull of an Aframax vessel sits 13.5 metres below the water surface, the absolute limit of safe clearance through the Second Narrows without risking an accident. That risk is still what motivated many of the dozens of residents at Saturday’s information session to ask questions about the project, including Deep Cove resident Len Laycock. “I’m absolutely anti-pipeline for all of the reasons that can be distilled down into environment and health,” Laycock told The Outlook. He said he also doesn’t believe the pipeline would bring anything positive to the region economically, but could negatively impact tourism in the event of a spill. “There’s not a business case here,” he said. “There’s a case for a particular set of businesses that want to extract the resource and benefit from it. But we’re taking risks from these pipes and we’re not even getting any rewards.” Davies admitted the $4.1-billion Trans Mountain expansion does not specifically benefit those North Shore
taNkEr talk - Residents gather at an information session on Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project at the North Shore Neighbourhood House in North Vancouver Saturday, Nov. 3. Todd Coyne photo
residents who, along with their neighbours across the inlet, bear some risks in being so close to the business end of the pipe if something did go wrong. But, he said, there would be economic benefits for the country at large. “It’s an important piece of Canadian infrastructure,” he said. “It will have some stimulus in the economy. We will generate a lot of income tax and property taxes. We won’t pay any property tax in North Van but those other spinoffs will come.” North Vancouver city council didn’t exactly give Davies an easier
time when he appeared before them at their Monday, Nov. 5 meeting. Coucillors Craig Keating and Pam Bookham both railed against ramping up fossil fuel production at a time when, one; its negative environmental impacts are known, and two; the city council has been actively encouraging residents to cut back on their own fossil fuel consumption. A report on Trans Mountain’s public consultation process is expected to be made public early next year. firstname.lastname@example.org twitter.com/toddcoyne
continued from, PAGE 5
However, Gutman stressed risktaking behaviour isn’t unique to any one age group or gender, and said we should focus on channelling the natural risk-taking tendencies we all have into positive “smart risk” activities that will benefit our health over time. Those activities, he said, can include so-called extreme sports like skateboarding, snowboarding, rock climbing and parkour, as long as participants have proper supervision, instruction and equipment.
“In terms of chronic disease, which is the epidemic of the next 20 years, activity is the single largest modifiable factor,” he said. “We have to make a decision as a society: Are we going to focus and invest in lifestyle or are we going down the same path that has led us to an epidemic of chronic disease?” email@example.com twitter.com/toddcoyne

Wild Things coming to the North Shore 1700 Mathers, West Vancouver
Where the Wild Things Are is anything but a typical children’s play TODD COYNE

hen adapting a bestloved children’s book for the stage, it’s best to tread lightly. Especially if that book is Where the Wild Things Are, the children’s book best-loved by adults. So when Kim Selody, director of North Vancouver’s Presentation House Theatre, wanted to bring the canonical story of the misbehaving Max and his imaginary land of “wild things” to the Canadian stage for the first time in 2002, he wrote to Maurice Sendak to ask the Wild Things author and illustrator for his blessing and THE LOST FINGERS his advice.

different sports and representation of all time periods.” Telling historical narratives requires frequent trips to the North Vancouver Museum and Archives, hours at the library scrolling microfilm and flipping through old city directories and cold calls — lots of them. Corben thinks nothing of coming across a somewhat unique last name, typing it into Canada411.com, getting 25 or more results and calling up each one to gather intel for his story. He’s tracked down people as far away as Germany for his column. That doggedness once even earned the inveterate researcher a return call — from the law. When Corben was making his way through a list of names for a story on New Year’s babies, one call recipient became suspicious, thinking the man on the other end of the line might be a fraudster looking to glean some personal info so he called the RCMP, who in turn called Corben. “That’s the first time that’s happened,” Corben says with a laugh. Usually his calls end up turning into long conversations or later interviews. “They do some of the research themselves,” he says. “Pretty much everyone I deal with is so helpful. ‘You might try so and so and here’s their number.’” Mostly Corben relies on his own history on the North Shore for story ideas. After all, he grew up here, played sports here, had his own sports column in the North Shore Citizen beginning when he was still in high school and served as the coordinator of athletics for the North and West Van school districts for three decades. Of course, during his research he also
stumbles across gems. A good example is “A Footrace for the Ages,” which appeared in his first book, Instant Replay. “That story came about because of a few lines that were tucked away in a story in a newspaper that hasn’t existed in years,” he explains. While doing research for a West Vancouver May Day story he stumbled across a paragraph or two about a 100yard race in 1931 that ended with one runner tripping over his shoelace and the race being rerun in an incredible act of good sportsmanship. “Now if I could get ahold of the people,” he said to himself. “I researched and researched and eventually found an Oldum [the last name of the sprinter who stumbled] in West Vancouver who was a distant relative.” That led him to an Oldum living on Salts Spring Island. Corben called, expecting to speak to the daughter. Turned out, it was his wife, who was now in her 90s. “She remembered that race in minute detail,” he says leaning forward. “Wow, what a memory.” His story appeared in The Outlook on May 25, 2006 “exactly 75 years after the event,” he says proudly. “I hold stories for a key moment.” And he’s got hundreds more story ideas stored on his computer that just need a little more research. —For more information about the Pitching Professor and Play it Again! email email@example.com or call 604-9880455.

TransLink’s gas tax revenues suddenly dropped over the last year, she said, it would have been harder to avoid immediate service cuts. She noted the board believes in prudent fiscal management, which is also supported by bond rating agencies and results in TransLink being able to borrow more cheaply than if it took greater risks. “To shift to a much less conservative level – I think the board would have a very hard time with that.” The audit endorsed the cost-control efforts TransLink is adopting through its 2013 base plan. The $98 million in savings already approved include shelving most of a previously planned transit expansion, as well as further efforts to restructure existing bus service, less frequent weekend SkyTrain service and new or higher parking fees at parkand-rides. Olewiler said she’s optimistic the mayors’ council and the province can reach an agreement on a replacement revenue source for TransLink by the end of February, eliminating the need for a $30 million property tax increase. The mayors set the deadline last month, saying they intend to rescind the property tax hike no matter what and leave the province to deliver an alternate source to prevent deep transit cuts. Olewiler said TransLink has not yet begun preparing a list of possible cuts to balance the budget if those talks fail. “We’re going to cross that bridge when we come to it.”

Since 2002, the director has premiered the play across Canada, even taking it on a victory lap in 2006 before bringing it to Japan, twice. His timing couldn’t have been better, as only a short while after securing Sendak’s permission to stage it, the author sold all the story’s reproduction rights to Universal Studios to make the 2009 film, Wild Things. “This is the only existing production of the play,” Selody tells The Outlook, having consulted an entertainment lawyer soon after the story’s sale. “Several other people have asked can they get the rights to the play and I said actually you can’t because Maurice Sendak was very careful to only gift it to a few people under very strict rules.” The most important rule for Selody, whether stated or not, is not to stray from Sendak’s child-like vision. “It’s built on the premise that you really can never know for sure what’s going on in someone else’s head,” Selody says. “And the feelings that a child has — the feelings of loneliness, the feelings of anger, the feelings of frustration — are just as powerful in a four-year-old or three-year-old as they are in an adult. They’re not lesser just because the kid is younger. “Maurice Sendak understood that,” the 35-year theatre veteran adds. Often remembered not as a children’s author but as an author who told the truth about childhood, Sendak’s work, when here adapted for the stage, requires one big lie to get its point across. Namely, that there is a play, but due to a late-coming troublemaking audience member, the children are missing it. “When the kids come in and they sit down in the theatre, they think they’re getting the story of Where the Wild Things Are and they think it’s going to be told in a certain way. But then a kid comes in late and disrupts everything and gets into a lot of trouble. He ends up wrecking everything, and he’s Max,” Selody says. “Then he ends up going on his journey and we help him through it all.” And like the book, while created ostensibly for kids, it’s meant to be enjoyed by kids of all ages. And that in itself may be the book’s most endearing and enduring quality; the precision with which it navigates face-value fun for kids with reflective metaphor for nostalgic grownups. “We try to make the play work at both the adult and the child’s level,” Selody says,” because the purpose of this is to have a shared experience.” Where the Wild Things Are plays Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Nov. 8 to 18 at Presentation House Theatre. Tickets are $15 and seating is limited to about 100 people per performance. firstname.lastname@example.org twitter.com/toddcoyne
