Unions call on government to cancel foreign SeaBus contract

The BC Services Card. Your CareCard, and more.

TODD COYNE S Ta f f R e p O RT e R

T

he B.C. Federation of Labour is calling on the federal and provincial governments to cancel a TransLink decision to buy a foreign-built SeaBus, saying the transit provider ignored millions in federal funding assistance that could have given a local builder the edge on winning the contract.

The provincial labour federation last week joined the BC Shipworkers’ Federation in asking the government to block TransLink’s awarding of the new SeaBus contract to the Dutch-based Damen Shipyards Group, whose $25-million bid for the work beat out a $27-million bid from North Vancouver’s Allied Shipbuilders. Damen is expected to build the new ferry in Singapore, a move that will cost British Columbians more than $25 million in lost jobs and economic spinoffs, the unions claim. The deal marks the first time in the ferry service’s 36-year history that one of its boats will be built off B.C.’s shores. Shipworkers’ union president George MacPherson said Thursday that TransLink rejected “out of hand” millions in federal funding which could have made the difference in Allied winning the bid. But it’s a claim TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel flatly denied. “That is something we took a look into,” Zabel told The Outlook, noting that 90 per cent of TransLink’s cost for the new SeaBus will already be paid for through the Federal Gas Tax Fund. That leaves only 10 per cent of the boat’s cost eligible for the federal assistance program, Zabel said. “It only would have saved us under $5,000,” he added. “The Damen contract saves us $2 million, so it’s still far greater.” Still, president of the B.C. Federation of Labour, Jim Sinclair, called Ottawa’s decision not to insist on a Canadian builder for the new SeaBus “astonishing,” especially in light of the government’s insistence on going local for its $8-billion navy and coast guard ship procurement program last year. “Why build Canadian for some projects and give the jobs away on others with the same taxpayer dollars?” Sinclair said. Both MacPherson and Sinclair said it’s not too late for TransLink to do the right thing and reverse the decision on Damen. But from TransLink’s standpoint, there’s no looking back, Zabel said. “It’s a legal process.” tcoyne@northshoreoutlook.com

t’s a new year, and now it’s time for a new lifestyle. Black Press has partnered with Kin’s Farm Market to launch the Green Fighters Challenge in 13 communities in the Lower Mainland, including the North Shore, which will follow participants over several months as they change their life and get healthy. One person will be chosen from each participating community to make a change and win prizes. The grand prize will be a cruise for two from Cruise Experts. It will be awarded at the end of the 13-week contest. However, one Green Fighter will win a prize each week during weekly challenges. But it’s not just the participants who will be able to win. Canadian Tire will provide prizes for readers as well as the challengers as part of their commitment to healthy living, and you are encouraged to check out the Green Fighters website to follow the participants’ progress and share your thoughts about how you are eating better and getting fit for 2013. The Canadian Cancer Society has noted that changing just one thing about your life, whether it’s eating more vegetables or quitting smoking, can reduce your cancer risk. Kin’s Farm Market is pleased to be able to provide fruits and vegetables to the participants in the Green Fighters Challenge, as well as produce to every customer that will put you on the road for achieving your New Year’s resolution and a healthier lifestyle in general. The Green Fighters site will regularly include recipes, special offers and tips for making a change, whether it’s to your diet or fitness level. The year 2013 is shaping up to be one of change for UBC student Ben Duenas. After spending most of his days during the last few years in a classroom, the chemical engineering student is looking to make some changes in his life. “While going to school full time, I didn’t have time to exercise,” said Duenas. “I’ve made it my New Year’s resolution to get out there and try new things.” The 23-year-old, who was cooling down after a short workout at Bear Creek Park in Surrey, also wants to rev up his social life. “I’ve been sitting in class far too long, so I just signed up for jiu-jitsu (a Japanese martial art) and ballroom dancing,” Duenas said. “I hope to meet new people outside the classroom.” For Sukhmani Pannu, also 23, getting in shape and staying that way has become her goal for this year. She has already made some changes to the way she eats. “I found that I used to have a meal around 6:30 or 7 p.m. every night, but now I eat earlier, around 5 p.m. and then have a small salad.” The strategy seems to be working, Pannu said, as she’s already dropped 20 pounds. A recent poll of Lower Mainland residents, however, shows Duenas and Pannu may be in the minority. Results of an Ipsos Reid survey (commissioned by Fitness Town Surrey) released last month indicate just 14 per cent of people actually made New Year’s fitness-related resolutions last year. And of those who did, about two-thirds stuck to them. Those who abandoned their healthy plans listed lack of motivation, laziness and lack of time as their top reasons for abandoning their good intentions. When asked what would motivate them to continue with keep-fit resolutions, survey respondents said having more time would help, as would personal support from a trainer or nutritionist, or having someone to work out with. Other people said more money – to buy equipment or for a gym membership – might prompt them to exercise, as would a better schedule (such as a more flexible work timetable) or having a regular schedule or fitness program created for them. When asked how often they engage in sports or other exercise, just 20 per cent of poll respondents said they exercised between five and seven times a week, while 40 per cent said two to four times a week was average for them. About four per cent said they never exercise. Of those who do exercise, almost 70 per cent agreed they do so to lose weight. Also included in the survey results were questions about eating during the Christmas holidays. While 71 per cent admit they overindulged, 63 per cent said they felt guilty about it. Other figures indicated the holiday season and its overabundance of turkey dinners and desserts have had a clear impact on the urge to get back on a healthy path. Fifty-five per cent of those polled said they were inspired to get fit right before the holidays, an impulse that dropped by about 11 per cent during the holidays. However, more than 73 per cent of respondents said they were wanted to get fit right after the holiday season. For Pannu, it doesn’t matter what the statistics show, she said she just wants to get healthy – and look good. “I want to be a fitness trainer, so I need to have a six-pack,” she said, laughing.

“I’m saddened but I understand that when you reach the level of frustration with the government that first nations have, and obviously the lack of trust with the government, there are very few ways which you can express your disappointment and certainly this is one,” Campbell told The Outlook. “I’m saddened because really the government has nothing to do with this medal; it’s the Queen who presented it. But it’s sad and it should be a Chief Leonard wakeup call to this government that they have to George receives deal with the first nations in a trustful, respectful his award manner, and they aren’t doing it.” In his speech to the Tsleil-Waututh nation members, Campbell said all Canadians would be in “a much better place” if politicians in Ottawa made it a habit of listening to the likes of George. “Chief George has taken his community on an incredible march forward,” Campbell explained, rattling off just some of the ways the elder’s economic and spiritual guidance have enriched the TsleilWaututh Nation. “This is a nation that is peaceful with the nations around it,” Campbell added. “The prime minister would do well to think of the word, peaceful.” Campbell nominated George for the Jubilee Award, having first met the Tsleil-Waututh leader in the 1970s, when the senator was then an RCMP officer in North Vancouver.

ack in 1918, the world danced to a different beat. The First World War was just ending, and radio was just beginning. Music, however, was in full swing and, as far as one young man was concerned, it was about to change his life forever. Dal Richards, known across Canada as the consummate band leader, turned 95 years young on Jan. 5. The overall celebration however simply could not be confined to just one day as Dal and his wife Muriel have made several appearances at various events across the city. One of the most glamorous events was held last Sunday night as friends and wellwishers from all across the land came out to wish Dal well at the nostalgic “The Roof” venue. Located at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, it was an evening of live music, good food and fabulous memories which ended with Dal himself singing his signature favourite song — “As Time Goes By.”Needless to say, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Happy Birthday Dal!

mack in the midst of one of the most gruelling mountain-rescue seasons on record, Tim Jones, the leader of North Shore Rescue, is coordinating one of the biggest operations in the outfit’s 40-year history. The 45-member team is moving house, to a brand new dedicated NSR operations base on the new City of North Vancouver works yard. Nursing an injury after the long and arduous overnight rescue of a snowshoer on Hollyburn Mountain, Jones nonetheless limps around the new building, playing host on the eve of the big move-in day. The new space is vast and will be wellequipped, especially when compared to the old NSR base — a cold and cramped garage on a corner of the former city operations yard on West Second Street. “In a typical search operation we use about 6,000 feet of rope, and all of it has to be dried and packaged after — all of the rope-rescue kits, all of the care kits — and the vehicle itself has to be re-equipped,” Jones explains. “And before, we were doing

all that in the pouring rain. Now, with this maintenance facility, the vehicle will be inside in the bay, the maintenance room is right beside it and the drying racks are right beside it.” The new site will also boast a special rappel-training wall topped with a roperescue catwalk high in the rafters above the truck bays. It’ll be a huge upgrade for the team and the new skills it will afford come not a moment too soon. “The only reason we got to that guy on the weekend is we rappelled in,” Jones says, explaining how he injured his leg while leading a rescue team in a vertical rope descent down a frozen waterfall. “And a lot of the guys refused do it — they just didn’t have the experience.” The new infrastructure goes a long way to filling that training gap, Jones says. But, like everything in the new facility, it comes with a hefty price tag. A recently installed communications antenna, for instance, came in at a whopping $75,000. Once outfitted with all the mod cons, the new base will ring the register to the tune

of $1.5 million. Of that, about $900,000 will have come from the three North Shore municipalities, leaving a $600,000 tab for North Shore Rescue and its benefactors, such as the West Vancouver Community Foundation. Despite the cost, Jones says the new digs are a necessity and will ease the stress on NSR volunteers during prolonged rescues. “Now we can shift the command centre off the mountain and bring it down here,” he says, standing in the new base’s main operations room. “The reason we’d want to do that is here you’d have a command centre where the guys can actually rest and not have to worry about all these external pressures being put on them from their families and other things.” Adjacent to the operations command room, which features a wall-sized map of the whole North Shore and improved real-time communications equipment, a kitchen and rest area will allow rescuers in overnight operations to spell each other off for some much-needed R and R before going back out into the field. Off the other wing of the command centre, there’s a much smaller room, though

equally important. Tentatively titled the “legacy fund command post,” the room is not much bigger than a walk-in closet, but it’s where the future of North Shore Rescue can be found. “This is where we’re going to be launching our legacy endowment fund for $5 million,” the NSR leader says. “Our plans are to work with a professional fundraiser and we’re going to try and target wealthy people in the community who can help us out because this legacy fund is absolutely essential to the team’s future.” It’s one of the few rooms in the new facility that will be staffed almost daily, Jones says, as he anticipates personally working the phones to secure a sustainable bank roll to keep the all-volunteer NSR squad in business. “This legacy fund is not a convenience, it’s a vital element to our survival as a team,” Jones says. “We just can’t keep doing it the way we’ve been doing it, in the long-term.”

Michaela Garstin photo team at the same time.” But keeping kids interested in music can be difficult, says Brown, with the increasing use of technology in and out of the classroom. Music, which involves face-to-face interaction, is a “socially vibrant activity where kids grow a lot,” he adds. Each year, five or six students go on to learn music at university. Former Rockridge students are now at UBC, SFU, Capilano University and the Berklee College of Music in Boston, one of the top music schools in North America. But the skills learned by band students go beyond music. “Even if their jobs have nothing to do with music, what they learn is very important in life,” Brown explains. “Employers have discovered those students who study music are good at teamwork and complicated task.” Rockridge’s next performance is the annual Jazz Café on Feb. 2, where the audience will eat traditional New Orleans food.

he music program at Rockridge secondary rivals any in the school district, says director Ian Brown. “We don’t want to take second place to any school in the district, public or private,” he says proudly of his Grade 8 to 12 band students. Brown’s goal is to increase enthusiasm about learning music while giving students role models to look up to. “I work on as high a level of music that the kids can do,” he tells The Outlook, adding it’s vital for professional musicians to visit the classes. Last Friday, as part of a program with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, around 100 students went to the symphony’s rehearsal at the Orpheum Theatre downtown and will see an actual performance this week. The program also included visits from musicians from VSO, who taught the band selections such as “Night on Bald Mountain” by Modest Mussorgsky. “By participating in these kinds of programs, they want to play at a high level and their goals and objectives are much clearer as a result,” says Brown. But a love of music starts earlier than high school. That’s why Brown started the Rockridge Zone Concert Band, which brings elementary students together with his classes to learn what band is like in high school. “I think the process of learning music is very similar to learning sports because skills are learned only by practicing,” Brown explains. “The students learn teamwork because they have to work individually and be precise as a

Celebrate Robbie Burns Day with a plate of haggis The newly opened Two Lions Public House is celebrating the famous Scottish poet with some traditional pub fare and kilt contest MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

aggis anyone?

It’s made of sheep’s pluck (heart, liver and lungs), minced onion, oatmeal, suet and spices all traditionally encased in an animal’s stomach, then simmered for three hours. (Nowadays, many people put the ingredients in a sausage casing rather than an actual stomach.) For a chance to try haggis, stop by the Two Lions Public House in North Vancouver on Friday, Jan. 25 to celebrate Scotland’s most famous poet, Robbie Burns. It was Burns who made haggis the national dish of Scotland, thanks to his poem Address to a Haggis, written in 1787. The Two Lions opened this week in the old location of Mosquito Creek Bar & Grill in Westview, but a lot has changed. The pub will be serving comfort food — pizza, chili cheese fries, burgers, nachos — along with healthier options like a club house wrap or Kung Pao veggie stirfry, all served in “big portions.” Seven local beers, such as Russell Blood Alley Bitter and Stanley Park Amber Ale, are part of the 12-beer selection on tap. “The atmosphere will be different than Mosquito Creek,” explains Steve Jennings, owner of the pub, as he walks through the renovated restaurant. “We’re looking after the crowd that was here before, but we also want to attract the business crowd that used to come here.” Jennings also owns the Narrows Pub in North Van, the London Pub in Chinatown and is a partner in the Manchester Public Eatery on Broadway. Before setting out on his own, he was director of the Donnelly Group, which owns pubs and nightclubs in Vancouver. It’s not only the food that’s changed at his latest venture in North Van. The inside of the restaurant was completely torn out, replaced with a more sophisticated pub look. The bar is now open from all sides, so no more waiting in a long line for a drink. The murals high on the wall are replaced with daily specials, including $14 Bud pitchers and $10 pizzas to share on Tuesdays and Sundays. “We offer really good comfort food,” says Jennings, taking a break from overseeing construction. “The North Shore used to be so vibrant, but then it leveled off. We need something like this here.” Live music will include Joe’s Garage, a band that’s played at the Roxy for the last 15 years, SideOne and Phoenix. The popular Thursday karaoke nights are here to stay. The Two Lions Pub is geared toward the 30- to 45-year-old crowd, but don’t worry, the pool table is staying, along with the addition of darts and pinball. Rosemary Wear a kilt to the Oven Roasted Two Lions on Jan. 25 for Robbie Burns HAM night to win a prize.

CatChing the fever - Coach Ian McDonald became passionate about wrestling after witnessing Japan’s high school all-star team compete at Carson Graham in 1973.

Maximize your investment potential

an McDonald has been North Shore wrestling’s main man for a long time. It was exactly 40 years ago on Jan. 16-17, 1973, that an outstanding all-star team of Japanese high school wrestlers visited the North Shore, completely overwhelming the local opposition. The boys from Japan came out on top in all 20 bouts contested at Carson Graham and West Vancouver. Yet, oddly enough, despite the losses, it was actually wrestling on the North Shore – and B.C. as a whole – that turned out to be the real win-

ners after all. You see, among the crowd that squeezed into Carson Graham’s old gym on that first of two nights to witness the pick of North Shore wrestlers challenge the very best in all of Japan, was a Grade 10 student from now-longgone Hamilton Jr. Secondary by the name of Ian McDonald. It would not be long before his impact on wrestling would be felt big time. McDonald wasn’t a member of coach Terry Shaw’s Hamilton wrestling team, though he had tried the sport in Shaw’s P.E. class. He was a basketball player then which is a bit of a hoot considering the tee-shirt (see next-page photo) he now sometimes wears. However, witnessing the athleticism of the Japanese wrestlers impressed McDonald so much that neither he nor

wrestling here would ever be the same. Ian wrestled at Carson Graham and then four years at SFU as a two-time Western Canada open champion and a fifth-place finisher in the nationals at 62 kilos (that’s 137 pounds for the metrically challenged). In 1985, he embarked on a teaching and coaching career at Balmoral and now Carson Graham where his presence has featured some impressive achievements in coaching and promoting the mat sport. Over the past three decades McDonald has turned the sport upside down. (Okay, I enjoy plays on words as much as McDonald loves to poke fun with his shirt). Actually, change that to downside up because it’s been all positive stuff. continued, NEXT PAGE

McDonald founded and is president of the Capilano Wrestling Club (organized in 1985 and formally registered in 1990) which goes year round. He’s been wrestling league chair for the North Shore Secondary Schools’ Athletic Association for the past 19 years and the commissioner of B.C. high school wrestling since 2008.

t’s easy to toss a couple batteries into the garbage because, unlike cardboard and pop cans, they’re small enough that no one will notice.

But a group of West Vancouver high school students is working hard to make people think twice about not recycling. Last year, the club collected 1,750 pounds of batteries from 10 apartment buildings, the West Van library, seniors centres and grocery stores. As a result of the program, West Van residents are now recycling batteries about double the national average. until February 9 at “Sometimes it’s not convenient to recycle batteries, and www.msll.ca we’ve found we need to make it easy,” said Jessie Lin from West Van secondary’s Recycling Club. Batteries can’t be added to household recycling bins along with paper, plastic bottles and cans. And it turns out most people aren’t willing to travel far to recycle, Lin said, so boxes in apartment Adult Hip Hop lobbies work best.

They expect to hear back from council within the next couple months. “Our main problem is single-family houses,” said Fernando, adding the best option is to put the boxes where families often go, like grocery stores and the library. Asking other students to collect batteries has also been a success. North Van’s Ridgeview elementary handed over 30 pounds of batteries in two weeks. “We want to make batteries one of the things people always recycle,” said Lin, adding the club hopes to cover all of West Van eventually.
