What will the North Shore look like in the future? Predictions about North and West Vancouver By Michaela Garstin

H

is trailer’s flat roof and plastic siding match the rows of squat homes under the Lions Gate Bridge. Past the shrubs and gravel driveway, plastic furniture and a few plants sit on the porch. There’s no way to tell Frank Ogden, a renowned futurist, lived in the nondescript trailer just months earlier. Nothing is visibly high-tech about the home, no antennae shoot out from the roof, no mass of cables lead in. For such an influential thinker, whose predictions included the Internet’s eminent impact, Ogden’s trailer is shockingly ordinary. But ordinary “Dr. Tomorrow” was not. Some called him loony, others a genius, but no one can doubt that many of the computer pioneer’s odd predictions have come true. Before passing away in December at the age of 92, he wrote 20-plus books about the role of technology and government in the future, including predicting the dominance of computers in our daily lives and the invention of e-books. While these predictions may seem somewhat mundane now, they were once just as outrageous as his more recent forecasts of teleporting and extensive body implants creating cyborgs out of humans. And Ogden didn’t just tell the future, he played a part in it by being one the first people to create a home page on the Internet and conduct international seminars by satellite. Ogden’s trailer overlooked Capilano River with Park Royal South in one direction and the North Shore’s iconic mountains in the other. What did he think this view would look like in the future? Will it be nearly the same, with a few worn-out buildings replaced here and there, or would extensive change leave it unrecognizable? _____ Despite more apartments and condos popping up, particularly in North Vancouver, the North Shore consists mainly of single-family homes. People move here, if they can afford it, to have the unique opportunity to live close to the mountains, the ocean and downtown Vancouver. continued, PAGE 10

Onni makes concessions ahead of second hearing on Lonsdale development Development group Onni returns to a public hearing Monday, and they’re bringing some changes to their 1308 Lonsdale development that they hope will put residents’ fears to rest TODD COYNE S Ta f f R e p O RT e R

O

nni, the developer behind the contentious 13th and Lonsdale development, will come with concessions to anti-development groups ahead of a storied second public hearing on the North Vancouver tower project Monday.

It will be the return of a lengthy two-and-a-half year application process that was last year poisoned by public comments and accusations of impropriety from both the developer and North Vancouver city hall. But now after a three-month hiatus during which Onni agreed to return for another public hearing at the city’s request after threatening to walk away from the project altogether before Christmas, the hope among both camps is that cooler heads will prevail. That said, Monday’s meeting promises to be a long, standing-roomonly affair as many of the citizens’ groups and petitioners who packed the first six-hour hearing back in November are this time expected to bring company. But Onni vice-president of development Beau Jarvis told The Outlook Tuesday that he expects a lot of those residents who previously had gripes about some aspect of the project will be pleased with the accommodations Onni has made. The “Save 14th Street” campaigners, for instance, should be happy to learn that most of the car and truck traffic that had been planned for the 100-block of East 14th Street has now been moved one block south to the four-lane 13th Street. continued, PAGE 6

Look what we have here! Yes, a WAGON. Remember when wagons were in? In Chevy Chase movies the whole family piled into the wagon. Before SUVs came rolling out this was a family’s GO TO vehicle… Well, AUDI has somehow kept wagons in style with their sleek styling and turbo-charged motor that allows you to keep that feeling of driving a fast car, yet you can still pile everything into it without feeling like you’re tipping or going to fall asleep at the wheel because you’re bored and annoyed at how under-powered your huge wagon is. No more making a statement: Yes I am no longer single… those kids in the back are mine. This A4 just screams I got lots of room for all ages and sizes and it will get you there in speed and style…. Oh, and with the tinted windows no one will know who’s in the backseat!

City Mayor Darrell Mussatto said this concession alone has already shifted a lot of public opinion previously lined up against the project. “Honestly, I was quite surprised at that change,” Mussatto told The Outlook in a phone interview Tuesday. “I did not think that Onni was going to do something that significant,” Mayor Mussatto was a city councillor in the late-1990s when the city transformed East 13th from a two-way street to a oneway pedestrian-friendly corridor. Then, as now, there was community resistance to the move, albeit back then residents were calling for more access for trucks and cars. Mayor Mussatto Mussatto said the fact that residents now “accept and desire” fewer cars on 13th Street is a vindication of that previous council’s decision and he’s happy Onni has accommodated it. Aside from the traffic changes, the Onni project now also boasts a “green” or “living” wall comprised of plant life covering the northfacing side above Stella Jo Dean Plaza. The wall of the planned 70-foot office building has also been set back from the plaza 36 feet to alleviate concerns about shading. Additionally, the taller of the two residential towers — standing 240 and 170 feet, respectively — has been set back about eight feet from 14th Street, while the office building has been set back from the Grande building by about nine feet, resulting in less separation between all three buildings. The project’s grocery store has been reconfigured but retains the same overall floorspace. Onni is still in talks with two grocers interested in potentially leasing the space. The building’s daycare amenity remains unchanged in the new plan. As for the public hearing itself, neither Jarvis nor Mussatto had any predictions for how the debate would go, but Mussatto stressed that everybody who wants to speak will be allowed to, regardless of personal, political or corporate affiliation. tcoyne@northshoreoutlook.com

he players may have changed, but the celebration remains the same. The Vancouver International Wine Festival (previously known as the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival), held its Bacchanalia Gala Dinner last week. The magnificent ballroom at the Fairmont Vancouver Hotel was transformed into a magical setting as guests sipped on bubbly glasses of Mumm Napa DVX 2005 during the reception. Then it was time for dinner and a magical trip through the great state of California. Each course was accompanied by two select vintages including Painted Rock Estate Chardonnay, Schug Cameros Pinot Noir and special cabernet sauvignon from West Vancouver’s own Ray Signorello. After dinner it was time for the wine auction. Overall, the evening raised over $400,000 for its new beneficiary – Bard on the Beach.

Despite population growth, the community won’t lose its neighbourhoods of large houses, say community planners from each municipality. But these houses will look completely different in the future, according to Odgen’s predictions. Canadian construction will face a tough time, as overseas companies start to build ceramic houses in just 40 minutes, he predicts. It’s impossible for these homes to catch on fire and they incorporate new technology Western countries have yet to discover. “…[It’s] a process that permits the construction of 10,000 DIFFERENT homes at almost the same price per house as it costs to produce 10 current homes!” he said in a column on his website drtomorrow.com. “To put it simply, sand (silicon and limestone) goes in one end of the production plant and a house comes out the other. On site erection time is around 2.5 hours.” Like most of his other predictions, he doesn’t give exact dates. But rest assured, he says, these homes will quickly take over wood and cement construction. So, according to this futurist, the North Shore could one day be row upon row of shiny, smooth and cheap homes, possibly making it easier to afford expensive real estate in this area. While the hefty price of land likely won’t go down, according to community planners, at least the price of building a house could be much more manageable. There are many people, of course, who still want to live on the North Shore but can’t afford to buy. Instead of living in these futuristic houses, they will end up in apartments and condos. Both North and West Vancouver plan to build more affordable housing as part of their Official Community Plans, which guide the municipalities through development. “The areas that aren’t the four town centres will likely stay hopefully very much the way they are today,” says the District of North Vancouver’s mayor Richard Walton, looking forward 20 years. In other words, expect big development in the four villages he’s referring to — Lynn Valley, Lower Lynn, Maplewood and on Capilano and Marine Drive —but not much elsewhere. The town centre on Capilano Road could be the most startling contrast between before-andafter. Many of the struggling motels, Walton says says, will be replaced with apartment buildings, small independent shops, parks and a community centre. These developments, he adds, will give North Van much-needed affordable housing options for seniors to downsize and young people to move into. But it will be Lonsdale Avenue that continues to be the centre of North Van, says City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto. Right now, 80 per cent of residents in the city live close to Lonsdale, he says, and this number will continue to grow in the next two decades. Expect taller buildings along the main road

as one-storey shops are soon torn down and replaced. But don’t worry about a highrise towering next door to your two-storey house. People living in neighbourhoods with single-family homes shouldn’t be concerned about encroaching development, Mussatto adds, because the tall buildings must stay within blocks of Lonsdale due to building by-laws. “More people will be living in apartments so their backyard will be the city,” says the mayor, mentioning covered play areas and more public washrooms are likely in the plans. Over in West Vancouver, development usually takes a slower place. But this doesn’t mean big projects aren’t on the agenda. Ambleside will continue to be a main attraction for West Van residents and visitors in the next 20 years, says director of planning Bob So-

Again, he doesn’t give an exact date, leaving us constantly guessing. Could these futuristic communities come true? It’s a small step, but the North Shore already has a glimpse of below-ground construction with many new developments putting parking underground instead of taking up valuable space above. ------Born in the early 1920s, Frank Ogden lived through a time without cellphones, Wikipedia, Google or even computers.

the Internet in a time when many still used horses for transportation. But Ogden was always ahead of his time. His long list of jobs is diverse, with many to do with aviation including flying airplanes and helicopters and becoming a flight engineer during the Second World War. He also had a stint selling real estate and household nicknacks, as well as managing a rock radio station in Montreal. Some of his other work was more unconventional. During the 1960s, he joined a medical team researching the effects LSD at Hollywood Hospital in New Westminster. The new psychedelic drug was banned in the United States in the mid-’60s but still legal in Canada at the time. He also, curiously, studied voodoo and nonverbal communication in Haiti for two years. “Voodoo priests get their information through a hierarchy of gods; we get ours through a hierarchy of technology,” he reflected on his website.

kol, adding there will eventually be a continuous walkway along the waterfront. Upcoming projects in the Upper Lands, however, will soon be another prominent weekend destination. These mountain communities complete with town centres are planned above Highway 1 but below the 1,200-foot cutoff. “There is a trail being built across the Rogers Creek development (in the Upper Lands). We believe once the trail is completed it will be just as big a success, and just as much a draw for the community, as the seawall is.” Ogden had a different prediction for future development. As land becomes more and more expensive, as it is on the North Shore, it becomes cheaper to build underground, he postulates. Once the neighbourhoods are built, the heat from human bodies will warm the complexes, and will then be sold to “old-fashioned” buildings above ground. “…Apartments and condos facing the ‘cave’

learned more about how people act and which innovations they’re likely to pick up. In later years, Ogden came up with a clear focus: Figuring out how new technology changes the way we live. He ended up making a good living off his predictions by holding seminars and writing numerous books. He reportedly made around $450,000 a year and even though his speaking engagements didn’t come cheap, people still lined up to see him. Ogden predicted Canada and other developed countries, often led by Japanese technology, would try to become more sustainable. Yes, we would still drive, he said, at least in the near future, but likely not as much. Following suit, community planners on the North Shore are already addressing the needs of people who want to leave their cars at home, or get rid of them altogether. In the next 20 years, frequent bus service will cover most of North and West Van. Getting to the district of North Van’s four town centres will be easy with fast, direct bus service, says Mayor Walton, adding a SkyTrain is too big of a step in the next two decades. “We’ll have 10-minute express service from Maplewood to Ambleside,” he adds, creating a vital link from one side of the North Shore to the other. In addition, traveling up and down Lonsdale by bus will be much faster with more frequent service. But getting people to ditch their cars altogether will be difficult, if not impossible. It will, however, get easier, according to Ogden, who made many predictions from his small trailer under the Lions Gate Bridge. As far back at the 1980s, he made predictions that new technology will be useful to drivers. Instead of fumbling for change to pay for parking, he said, a prepaid Park-O-Card the size of a credit card with a small microchip and long-lasting battery could be used to pay. “…You attach the card to your sun visor which you turn towards the driver’s side window,” he writes on his website. “The decimal point (on the metre) starts blinking to show that the card is working and also that you really do have a credit balance on the card… No hassle.” Although this invention isn’t available in Canada (yet), it does sound remarkably similar to the new meters that take credit cards instead of just change. Only time can tell if the North Shore will eventually have thousands of shiny ceramic houses and underground communities. These inventions may seem far out there, but remember Ogden’s predictions such as the popularity of Picture-Perfect Phone, which sounds almost exactly like iPhone’s video chat, did so too 30-odd years ago. So what exactly will the North Shore look like in the future? No one knows for sure, including Ogden, the mayors and municipal planners, but listening to them will give intriguing clues.

BUSINESS PROFILE: Great Canadian Landscaping Company

Chris O’Donohue,

Chris and his Team at The Great Canadian Landscaping Company believe that what they do at a home, business or future development site this Spring will set the stage for invaluable downtime for people to socialize with friends and family for the balance of the year. Coming home to the smell and feeling of a freshly manicured lawn and garden, or newly installed landscape, provides an overall sense of peacefulness and the desire to entertain or self reflect. “Spring is the most relevant time of the year to devise your plan of attack. Spending 15 - 20 minutes at the beginning of the season, discussing your lawn and garden’s maintenance needs is far more productive and cost effective for everyone.” Chris says. Chris says what typically happens at this time of the year is people are excited about the spring weather and decide to spearhead their own Lawn and Garden Maintenance Program with all good intent. It is not until early June when they start receiving disgruntled comments from spouses on what was supposed to happen but did not. The end result in most of these cases is damage control being done at the peak of the landscaping season when prices are much higher.

What to look for when choosing a Quality Landscape Provider? “If you are going to hire a Lawn and Garden Maintenance company or plan to do a Backyard Landscape Renovation Project, ensure that you check the company’s web site and credentials. You should insist that your project is overseen by a qualified professional such as a Certified Horticultural Technician (CHT)” Chris says. Another useful method for qualifying a Landscape provider is to see if they have basic structure in place. When you call, does it go straight to voicemail or does a live person answer the phone? Do they ask the right questions? Does the company have a Supervisor or General Manager that oversees your property or project? Is there a quality control check in place? A good Landscape provider is committed to keeping workers in the workplace safe and secure from injury, and illness, and you should request a copy of their current Clearance Certificate from Worksafe B.C. and also a copy of their liability Insurance with a minimum coverage of 2 million dollars. Chris and his team at The Great Canadian Landscaping Company have been providing quality landscaping services for over 10 years in this market place and measure their accomplishments simply by the positive comments

Studio F is the latest addition to the historically industrial area MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

A

decade ago Pemberton Avenue may have seemed like the last place North Vancouver’s artists would gather. Full of auto body shops and industrial businesses, the street was often know as simply “the area behind McDonald’s.” But the atmosphere has certainly changed. The thriving arts community is now welcoming Studio F, its newest member located just down the road from the Artists on Pemberton studio, Vanleena Dance School and One Dance Creative Centre. Run by North Shore-based artists Lorn Curry and Sheree Jones, Studio F is chock-full of artwork and supplies. Just a few weeks ago, however, the small space was unrecognizable. Fitting in well with other Pemberton Avenue businesses, the previous tenant had created a “very corporate” feel with carpet and white walls. Of course this had to change, said Curry, sitting in front of his sunny southwestern U.S. landscapes. They quickly repainted the walls to add a bit of character and put in the necessary washable floor. While there are no windows, adds Curry, two large skylights provide even better light. The huge chalkboard wall could stay though,

to give Jones a place to write down instructions for the students she teaches a few times a week. The creative duo met while in an arts mentoring program in North Vancouver and instantly knew they would be a perfect match when venturing out on their own. “A sense of humour is a big part of it. If the environment isn’t conducive to happiness then you’ll produce some pretty bad work,” says Lorn, who travels to Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and northern Texas. An iPad showing a photo of a parched desert landscape hangs beside his most recent painting on the easel. Jones, on the other hand, stays closer to home. Her West Coast-style paintings pop with vibrant colours. She’s currently painting a still-life of fruit in baskets. Translating the look of weaving into paint is extremely difficult, she says. When the two artists first decided to open Resident professional shop, spaces weren’t available at Studio 195, home of the Artists on yard! Pemberton. But setting out on their own has turned out to be a good move. Studio F will be one of the stops on the North Shore Art Crawl, an annual community arts festival, held on April 20 and 21.

Not the end of the storey

Grosvenor agrees to take off one storey, creating two seven-storey buildings for its proposed development in the 1300-block of Ambleside MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

H

ow tall should buildings be along Marine Drive in West Vancouver? This was the complex question that brought hundreds out to a council meeting on Monday evening. Wearing tags saying “No more than 4”, a passionate group of West Van residents came out to oppose two proposed buildings, one seven storeys and the other eight, that are planned for the 1300-block of Ambleside. They say the buildings are too tall, block views and would ruin the seaside community. But this time they were met by another group of residents who want the development to go ahead. They say Ambleside is in need of revitalization, and building the mixed commercialresidential buildings, which will include public space, is an important step. On the table for discussion were recommendations from city staff about what Grosvenor, the site’s developer, could do to make the project better. The list included reducing the building height by around nine metres (30 feet), which Grosvenor agreed to do by taking off one storey, effectively creating two seven-storey buildings, which would house 23 storefronts and 88 residential suites, ranging from under 1,500 square feet to over 2,500. Other demands included creating smaller, more affordable suites and additional public parking. “This project cannot be viewed in isolation as it sets a template for everything that’s going to happen between 13th and 18th [streets],” said Tim Arnold, who lives in Ambleside. “If

approved as is, everyone is going to try for these special zones.” Revitalizing Ambleside doesn’t need to include “highrises,” he added as the audience clapped and cheered. Stopping people outside the meeting, the Ambleside Dundarave Ratepayers Association says it has around 1,400 signatures opposing the project the way it is now. But others want the development. “The design reflects extensive community input and values. It’s an exciting building in true West Coast style, and not just another box like so much of our architecture,” said West Van resident Stephanie LaPorta, who says she has collected over 200 signatures of support. Mayor Michael Smith had strong words for both council members and the public who are opposed to the plans or want them altered significantly. “The reality is, I don’t see businesses lining up to invest in Ambleside,” he told council. “We finally have a quality developer who does, and we want to send them out of this council chamber with their tail between their legs? I just don’t get it.” With “countless hours” spent on studies and public consultations on Ambleside, he said it’s about time Ambleside is revitalized. “Our real estate agents refer to the 1300block… as the Gaza Strip. A great comment on Canada’s most desirable residential community,” he said. “It’s a disgrace. We’ve sat here as citizens and allowed it to go on.” In a 5-1 vote, council recommended staff work with Grosvenor on the 10 recommendations. Revised plans will be presented in the next few months.

Investigation continues into fire at illegal West Vancouver drug lab TODD COYNE S Ta f f R e p O RT e R

A

fire in an illegal drug lab forced the evacuation of about 40 people from a tony West Vancouver enclave Monday afternoon. Neighbours complained of smoke coming from a home in the 5500-block of Greenleaf Road just before 3 p.m. Several West Vancouver fire crews responded, but struggled to find the blaze for the volume of acrid white smoke clouding what West Vancouver Fire Chief Jim Cook described as a basement suite with a small kitchenette. “The fire was very difficult to find,” he told The Outlook at the scene Monday. “There wasn’t much heat but there was lots of smoke which was found later to be caused by chemicals.” Fire crews also discovered a man suffering from smoke inhalation and rushed him to Lions Gate Hospital. According to Cook, the man had spent approximately 10 minutes trying to knock down the fire himself before fire crews arrived. “We immediately evacuated the building, brought all the firefighters out,” Cook said, while nearby rescuers decontaminated their equipment. Because of the noxious white smoke — “consistent with a chemical fire,” Cook said — and because of the type of lab equipment firefighters described seeing inside the suite, the West Vancouver police and the RCMP’s Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response Team were quickly called in. By 4 p.m., police had evacuated about 40 residents from a dozen or so homes within a

150-metre radius of the property to protect against the possibility of injury from explosion or toxic gas, according to West Vancouver police spokesman Const. Jeff Palmer. Some of those evacuees took shelter at the nearby Eagle Harbour Montessori school. All residents were allowed to return to their homes by 9 p.m. By Tuesday afternoon, West Van police still had the entry to the Greenleaf Road home cordoned off as police were awaiting approval of a search warrant to enter the home and investigate a possible clandestine drug lab. “A search warrant application is being written as we speak,” Palmer told The Outlook Tuesday. “Because, although entry was made by firefighters and subsequently by the clandestine lab enforcement team, those entries are to ensure the area is secure and that the hazard is mitigated and contained,” not, he explained, to investigate or recover any evidence. A search warrant for the entire property was approved by the end of the day Tuesday and a “medium-sized” drug lab was discovered, Palmer said. Investigators were back onscene Wednesday morning. The West Vancouver constable said he could not recall the department ever conducting a drug lab investigation in the Eagle Harbour neighbourhood, but stressed this kind of illegal drug manufacturing can happen anywhere with four walls and a roof. “They can pop up anywhere, anytime. Certainly my experience over the last number of years is that no neighbourhood is immune from somebody looking to set up a grow operation or a clan lab.”

One in ten Canadians suffers some degree of hearing loss that can be attributed to many causes and conditions of the middle or inner ear.

To promote awareness of better hearing care and the detection of hearing loss, Clear Choice Hearing Clinics Community Outreach program is offering free Audiometric Hearing Screening.

These are full Audiometric assessments of

hearing levels and speech discrimination skills. The result will determine if there is a hearing loss, the type of loss and the level of impairment. The test will be explained in detail and a list of options and suggestions for the most effective corrections will be provided.

The tip-off to March Madness

Top-ranked North Van schools Argyle and Handsworth could clash again at the BC AAA High School Girls’ Basketball Championship in Langley

JUSTIN BEDDALL EdITor

W

hen given the full-court press about his team’s scoring, Handsworth coach Scott Palmer admits the Royals rely heavily on the dynamic duo of forward Elisa Homer and guard Abigail Dixon. “They’ve played together since [they] were in Grade 6 or 7. They are dynamic. They work off each other well — they have different styles.” And both rack up the points. Homer averaged nearly 32 points per game; Dixon chipped in around 24. “They’re hard to stop.” But as his No. 3-ranked team prepares to hit the hardwood for the BC AAA High School Girls’ Basketball Championship in Langley, he stresses it’s not just about two players. “It’s been a great team,” he says. “Everyone’s contributed — all 11 [players].” And they bring a depth of experience to the championship tourney. For four of his players, this will actually be their third trip to the big dance. “It really helps having that senior experience of three seasons,” says Palmer, who coaches the team with Thomas Staron. Palmer is also looking for a big performance from Grade 11 Lianna Rushworth, a five-eleven forward. “She’s a warrior in the paint,” he says. For Palmer, spending early March at the provincials is becoming tradition. This will be the ninth year in a row the Royals have qualified. In 2009 and 2010 they won it all. At this year’s B.C. tourney, there’s a chance the Royals could again face cross-town rival Argyle, who are ranked fifth. This season the teams have tangled five times

in tournament and regular season play, with the Royals winning three. If they are to face each other in the provincials it will be in the Final 4, with a berth in the championship on the line. “They are a top-five team in the province, they are very good,” says Palmer. All season long, the Pipers have proven they can win playing any style of game, barn-burners or defensive duals. “We are a defensive team but we have good fire power,” explains Pipers coach Anthony Fortunaso. The Pipers are led by five-seven guard Claire Elliot. “For my money we have one of the best point guards in the province in Claire Elliot,” says Fortunaso. “She sets the tone for us defensively,” he adds, noting she always draws the toughest defensive match-ups. She also runs the offence and scores timely baskets. Another Piper to watch, especially down low, is Robin Aulin-Haynes. “She really cleans up the glass for us,” Fortunaso says about his sixone forward. “Inside she’s hard to handle. [It’s] tough for teams to guard her.” Chelsea Dekleer, a guard-forward, is the Pipers’ best pure scorer. Last year, in his first year as coach, Fortunaso guided the Lady Pipers to a berth in the finals and top-eight finish. This year he’d like to advance further into the brackets. “[We have] one more tourney to prove how good we are.” “Everybody wants to win the big game and get that big blue banner,” he says.
