Retirees leave the North Shore in search of cheaper homes and sunshine MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

N

ot all retiring baby boomers want to stay put on the North Shore. For those with limited pensions, downsizing isn’t always an

option. Even a small house in North or West Vancouver can cost nearly $1 million and apartment-living isn’t for everyone. Eric Van Maren, developer of The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake, is used to hearing from North Shore residents who are looking for another option. Since the beginning of this year, he’s had 78 people from North Van inquire about cottage living and around a dozen from West Van. Two North Van residents recently bought, including a school teacher. “On the top of their list is climate — sunshine versus rain — and affordability of homes,” said Van Maren. A 950-square-foot cottage near the lake, for instance, starts at $300,000. “These are mostly people who are retiring or a few years away from retiring and looking for a vacation house they can live in later on,” he added. This kind of downsized living is exactly what proponents of coach houses say the North Shore is missing. Different than an apartment, these small backyard homes are usually around 1,000 square feet. They’re currently allowed in the City of North Vancouver under a range of guidelines, but can’t be built in the District of North Van or West Vancouver. “A lot of people said they like the idea of living in a house that was smaller and more manageable,” said Stephen Mikicich, senior community planner for West Vancouver, referring to the outcome of public information sessions about coach houses. “The idea was downsizing into the right unit size. Many people thought around 1,500 square feet.” But whether coach houses will even be allowed in West Van is still up for debate, with district council making the final decision on the controversial issue, which has drawn both support and opposition. Most communities allow coach houses for rentals only, not for sale. But, based on public feedback, creating strata titles could be an option for West Vancouver. “We want people to be able to stay in West Van,” said Mikicich, “We know some haven’t been able to find the housing types they need.” Allowing coach houses could help West Van residents who can no longer afford large houses and don’t want to live in apartments, he added. However, as The Cottages developer noted, not much can keep sunseeking retirees on the North Shore. He sees many potential buyers who simply want to escape the rain to live on lakefront property in Okanagan wine country. The relatively cheap price is just a big perk.

Ultra competitive Three of the world’s top ultrarunners hail from the North Shore. Find out why. By Justin Beddall

E

ven though he’s decked out in a bright orange jacket, electric blue shorts and red runners, he doesn’t turn many heads when he enters the Starbucks at the base of Grouse Mountain. Nobody here seems to know that the sweaty runner who just ordered a coffee and yogurt is Adam Campbell. You know, Adam Campbell, the North Van athlete named Canadian Male Ultra Trail Runner of the Year by Trail Running Canada in 2012. OK, so maybe he’s not a household name — yet. But if this was Europe, or maybe even Japan, where the ardent ultra racing fans line the trails to cheer on the competitors, he might get asked for an autograph or to pose for a photo. Ultrarunning, by Campbell’s own admission, is somewhat of a fringe sport. But its popularity is growing and there are a few Canadians, who are making a living — albeit modest — at it. Campbell is one of them. “There’s a handful of us who do it full-time. Two other people who do it at a high level [are] Gary Robbins and Ellie Greenwood and they both live on the North Shore,” says Campbell. Besides the North Shore, there are a few other North American hubs for the sport, notably Boulder, Colo., and Ashland, Ore. It’s no coincidence that best Canadian ultrarunners come from the North Shore. “We have the best terrain in the world to train on. It’s steep, it’s technical, it’s accessible year-round,” explains Campbell. “And there’s a big outdoor-minded community here and it’s a very supportive community. I ran with Gary yesterday and I know Ellie very well.” For the uninitiated, ultra racing is any event longer than the traditional marathon length of 42.195 kilometres. Most ultra events stretch much farther. The sport is perhaps most popular in Spain and France and draws elite competitors from around the globe. In June, Campbell, 34, will

tackle a gruelling 100-mile-plus ultra race around the perimeter of Andorra in southwestern Europe. Last year’s winner finished that epic course in 30 hours. “It has like 12,000 metres of climbing which is like 45,000 feet, all above 2,000 metres, so all at altitude,” he explains. Each season, Campbell targets four or five major competitions that draw the strongest international field. This has made for some stunning race backdrops, from across North America to Switzerland, France, Japan, Austria, South Africa and Cameroon — to name some. “I basically just describe it as suffering in beautiful places,” jokes Campbell, who also participates in a handful of local ultra races each season. To stay race-ready, the gregarious mountain runner spends much of his free time training in the local backcountry. “I just love being in the mountains,” says Campbell who shared an Instagram photo last week of a deer, just one of the mountain creatures he’s run into while training. On this day, he has just finished a 65-minute run up and down Grouse Mountain. “I train twice a day, three times a day,” he says, matter-of-factly. “I had really big weekend training, so Monday’s tend to be shorter days.” **** Adam Campbell used to be a top triathlete. At 21, he dropped out of university to pursue his dream of qualifying for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, moving to Victoria to train with Simon Whitfield, the legendary Canadian triathlete who won gold at the 2000 Sydney Games, and other top triathletes. But two years out he realized he wasn’t going to make it. “It’s just the reality of sport. I lived with the continued, PAGE 10

erene Campbell’s email address says a lot about her: Happy Sew Lucky. But, like the rest of the world, the North Vancouver mother and quilter was both shocked and heartbroken when news of the deadly Boston Marathon bombings broke. But she had an idea. She’d sew together some “love” flags and send them to the city she’d never even visited before but now felt so much compassion for. “I just felt compelled to do it,” she says. A long-time sewer and crafter, she’d made these types of flags before with encouraging messages for loved ones. But her initial project — a couple of strings of flags, she thought — soon became much larger in scope. She took the idea to her fellow sewers at the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. They liked the idea but wondered how they’d get the flags up in continued, PAGE 8

Boston. Someone suggested Amy Friend, a popular Bostonian who blogs about quilting, sewing and fabric on her site During Quiet Time. Campbell had never met her, but she’d ordered a few quilting patterns from her online before. So she emailed Friend. To Campbell’s surprise, Friend jumped on board the project immediately. Soon there was a notice posted on Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild’s website about the Boston With Love project. Campbell made an online tutorial and gave the design guidelines and shipping details for the flags. The flags were to contain no religious or political messages because Campbell wanted the project to be “all inclusive.” Social media then sent the sewing project to all corners of the world. Campbell, who has nearly 800 Instagram followers, posted some pics of the flags she and her family had made. Soon there was a Boston With Love flickr group and Instagram tag #tobostonwithlove.  Across Canada, the States and the rest of the world, quilters were making flags and uploading pictures of them. There were peace symbols, hearts and doves. Submissions came as far away as Australia and Japan. Some emailed Campbell with stories about why they were participating. A woman in Victoria was participating because her son lived in one of the neighbourhoods that was locked down during the manhunt for the bombing suspects.

A pair of sisters in Guelph, Ont. were doing it because their brother had run in the marathon and was lucky not to be at the finish line during the explosion because he was slightly hampered during the race. The flags kept coming. A teacher at Rockridge school who was in a book club with Campbell got her Grade 8 students involved making flags. Meanwhile, Friend had secured a spot to fly the flags — and a rather prestigious one. The Museum of Fine Arts wanted to exhibit the flags as part of its free Memorial Day weekend event. They would be hung in the museum’s impressive glass atrium. Last week Campbell flew to Boston with nearly 200 of the flags in her suitcase and was on hand Saturday when the exhibition was unveiled to the people of Boston. Campbell, who has an online business that sells sewing patterns and kits, says she’s not surprised that quilters from around the world got behind the project so eagerly. Quilters have a long history of reaching out to those who’ve been struck by tragedy, from Japan to Sandy Hook. “It’s really a giving community. Quilters are so generous.” What did surprise her though was the incredible number of flags. In all, she’d received 1,756 flags — and more continue to trickle in through the mail. “The overall effect when you walk into the room [at the Museum of Fine Arts], it’s overwhelming. It makes you want to cry.” twitter.com/justinbeddall

t’s always been about families and fun. But now, with the added glamour of a Friday night gala, Lynn Valley Days has indeed become the little festival that grew. Close to 500 guests donned their spring formal wear to attend the third annual Gala Dinner and Dance last Friday night to celebrate. A delicious buffet dinner, live music and silent auction items helped raise funds for the North Shore Rescue team. Congratulations to everyone involved.

competitive on race day, well too late you needed to do the training.” **** Gary Robbins isn’t blessed with the same made-for-running builds as Campbell or Greenwood but he’s got another trait that makes him a top ultra athlete. “What I feel distinguishes myself as an ultra runner is just the tenacity and stubbornness I carry with me in what I do, especially in the long-distance races, where the mental aspect that comes into it is so much greater than the physical aspect,” he says. “What I’ve found in my 100-mile races is that it’s really during those last 20 or 30 miles where I really excel because I don’t slow down,” says Robbins, who set a new course record at the Hawaiian Ultra Running Team (HURT) 100-mile race in February with a time of 19 hours and 35 minutes. In order to power through the inevitable lows that come over those distances, Robbins relies on his “overriding attitude of positivity that kind of allows me to get excited about small things,” he says. “My fiancée jokes that if I see a bright flower on a course it can take my low and turn it into a massive high really quick.” Now 36, Robbins competed in his first ultra event in 2008. These days he seeks mainly 100-milers in the toughest mountain terrain. Robbins, who gave up a career in the resort industry to pursue his passion, is now addicted to ultra and makes a living by competing and

as the founder and director of the Squamish 50 and others. “It is my life, it really is,” he says. “For me it’s a mix, a hybrid of the necessity to get out into the mountains and the journey that you go through in a 24-hour non-stop running event. I mean the emotional process alone is what few people may experience in a month.” Fortunately his fiancée understands his passion. She’s an ultra runner-slash-librarian and they met at a running event in Washington State. “She absolutely understands the necessity for me to make my training a priority, where if you’re not in a relationship with someone that understands that it can be a breaking point for a lot of people.” It also helps to have North Vanbased ultrarunners Campbell and Greenwood nearby for support and training. “We’re really fortunate that we have the caliber of athletes like Ellie and Adam in this area. We haven’t really had that before. North Vancouver has always been one of the main centres in Canada but I feel like it’s really developing into something that’s internationally recognized and special over the last couple of years and it’s going to be fun to see how it develops. “ Between the three of them, Robbins figures their average mileage is between 100 and 120 miles a week each or anywhere from 12 to 20 hours. “I mean that’s a part-time job and then you’re recovering from that and there’s all these other elements that come into play so it really has to be a focus to be successful in those distances.” No wonder the ultra club is such a tight-knit tribe — and it’s growing here. “I notice so many more people out on the trails and its great because you want people out on the trails, you want that community to exist,” says Robbins. If you happen to see Robbins on a North Shore trail and he runs past you with an expression on his face like he’s being chased, don’t take it personally. Even though you can’t see them, he’s being pursued by the top ultrarunners from France, the U.S. and the rest of the world. “When I’m training for a big race I’ll spend the month leading up to that race [by ending the] majority of my runs pretending that I’m in that race, envisioning my competitors who I know to be chasing me and celebrating the finish of my run like I’ve won the race.” It seems to be working. twitter.com/justinbeddall

Learning to take control of chronic conditions Self-management programs offered in B.C. help those with chronic ailments take charge of their health JOSIE PADRO COntrIbutOr

A

s the years accumulate, very often, so do our aches and pains. By the time we reach the age of 75, most of us have at least one chronic illness. The Canadian Health Institute for Health Information reports that three-quarters of Canadian seniors live with at least one chronic disease – diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, for example. Those with three or more chronic conditions took an average of six daily medications and were more likely to experience side effects serious enough to require medical care. A 2012 Report of the Standing Committee on Health stated the treatment of chronic disease accounts for 67 per cent of Canadian health care costs. While the cost of chronic disease has an impact on the Canadian economy, its impact is felt most directly by those dealing with the illnesses. Since the year 2000, a number of SelfManagement programs have been offered in B.C. to teach those with chronic conditions to take control of their health. The programs focus on developing skills that will help people manage their health and maintain the best level of day-to-day functioning. These skills include problem solving,

decision-making, using resources effectively, establishing positive relationships with health care providers and taking action. So far, more than 20,000 people have gone through the programs. “We found that after they take this program there are fewer emergency room visits, fewer hospitalizations and shorter hospital stays,” says Karen Hannah SelfManagement programs coordinator for Vancouver Coastal Health. The Self-Management Programs are led by trained volunteers who have experienced similar health challenges themselves. Participants meet in a small group of 10 to 12 people every week for six weeks. The two-and-a-half hour sessions, far from being a series of lectures, follow a carefully mapped out curriculum that draws on the experience and wisdom of participants through brainstorming and discussion. Because the emphasis is on coping skills, the programs complement rather than compete with participants’ medical care. “We differ from traditional health education in that instead of identifying for people what their problems are and what they need to do about it, it’s about providing people with problem solving and goal-setting continued, PAGE 16

strategies so that they can identify for themselves what they see as a problem and what they’re prepared to do about it,” says Hannah. Rebecca Wilson is in her last week of her Chronic Pain SelfManagement program. Over the previous five weeks she says she has learned strategies that helped her reduce the severe lower-back pain she was experiencing. She learned to take small, doable steps towards her goals, which helped keep her motivated and allowed her to create a positive daily routine. She chose five minutes of meditation every day, daily sun salutation yoga poses and a gradually increasing number of wall push-ups to improve her strength. “Now it’s a habit,” she says. “I just do it.” Living with a chronic health problem may present extra challenges, but through the self-management programs it’s possible to acquire skills that help cope with those challenges. Hannah quotes a past selfmanagement program participant: “I learned all the things that I should be doing from my health-care providers, but what this program gave me was ‘how to.’ How to take that information and actually start making those changes in my life and how to keep going.” — Josie Padro is a member of the North Shore Caregiver Support Project

Canadian seniors ill-prepared for long-term care needs: poll

T

he majority of older Canadians are unaware of the costs associated with longterm care and few are financially prepared to cover expenses, according to a Leger Marketing poll of Canadians aged 60-plus, conducted on behalf of The Canadian Life and Health Association (CLHIA). The poll shows that 56 per cent of Canadians are not familiar with the costs of long-term care in their province and two-thirds (67 per cent) do not have a financial plan to cover the costs of ongoing long-term care. “We need to acknowledge that we are facing a looming crisis in this country. Many older Canadians are on the verge of sticker shock when they inevitably come up against the need to pay for long-term care services,” CLHIA president Frank Swedlove said in a press release. “We calculate that the baby-boomer generation alone will require $1.2 trillion to meet their long-term care needs.” Further, the CLHIA estimates that currently available government programs would only cover about half of this amount. Women in particular are less prepared, with 70 per cent saying they do not have a financial plan to cover the costs associated with possible long-term care needs compared to men at 62

per cent. This is especially troublesome considering women have a longer life expectancy. “It is in the national interest that all levels of government and Canadians begin working together immediately to find solutions that will close the gap on what services are currently provided and what people can afford,” added Swedlove. Two-thirds of Canadians aged 60-plus said they would put money aside for long-term care if the government matched dollars they saved, similar to the registered education savings plan. Half of the respondents said they would prefer the government take the lead and add to the long-term care programs it offers, even if it means higher taxes (51 per cent). The survey of 500 Canadians age 60 to 74 and 500 Canadians age 75 and older was completed online between March 20 and 27. CLHIA is a voluntary association whose member companies account for 99 per cent of Canada’s life and health insurance business. The industry provides a wide range of financial security products such as life insurance, annuities and supplementary health insurance to almost 27 million Canadians. -Black Press

Shape the identity of Lynn Valley Town Centre

Celebrating Lynn Valley’s Sense of Community

neighbours bump into each other in parks, on sidewalks and in the town square, we strengthen our community ties. This vision is updated to meet today’s circumstances where we need more affordable housing, employment and transportation options. A mix of new residential, commercial, park and community space, along with a better transportation network, will create a more vital and complete community.

LYNN VALLEY TOWN CENTRE is identified in the OCP as the District’s Municipal Town Centre. It is envisioned as a traditional “main street” shopping area that evokes Lynn Valley’s historic street car community and town centre stores where residents can walk or cycle to shops, jobs and businesses. As in days gone by, when

HAVE YOUR SAY

Here’s how to have your say on four possible options for the Lynn Valley Town Centre Implementation Plan: How do we provide an effective transportation system?

What community amenities are important to you and your family?

What kind of housing do we need through all the stages of life?

How can we maintain and enhance our Mountain Village look and feel?

What kinds of parks, open spaces and plazas do we need?

GET INVOLVED AND HAVE YOUR SAY We need your thoughts on the four options for the town centre each with different building forms, heights, parks, open spaces and community facilities. You will see drawings, models and screen-pads displaying the options. Once you’ve seen the concepts, tell us what is important to you and fill out a feedback form.

COME TO ONE OF OUR UPCOMING OPEN HOUSES (drop-in format) Lynn Valley Recreation Centre | Saturday, June 1 from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm Lynn Valley Library Community Room | Wednesday, June 5 from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm Argyle Secondary School | Saturday, June 8 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm Argyle Secondary School | Wednesday, June 12 from 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Tell us what you think of 4 Options for the future The District of North Vancouver wants to hear from you on HOW to best shape Lynn Valley Town Centre. We need your input on building form, height, character and amenities for the Town Centre. Your contribution will help shape a preferred option for Lynn Valley Town Centre as we move ahead to turn the vision into a reality. Get involved and comment on four different options for the future of Lynn Valley Town Centre.

Help Create the Town Centre Implementation Plan The District’s Official Community Plan (OCP) was adopted in 2011 after a two-year public process involving thousands of our citizens, businesses and stakeholders. At the heart of the OCP vision is a network of four interconnected town and village centres – vibrant areas with diverse housing, shopping and services – linked through an enhanced transit network. Most of the District’s projected population growth over the next two decades will be in these areas. We’ve now moved into the implementation phase of the OCP – turning our community’s vision into reality. In order to successfully realize our plan, we need to continue discussions with the community to shape the Lynn Valley Town Centre Plan.

Creating a lively town centre in Lynn Valley over the next 20 years is a key aspect of the OCP. Between now and October 2013, there will be numerous opportunities to have your say about what choices will best meet the future needs and strengthen the character of Lynn Valley. Check the next page to find out how to get involved.

Why do we need change? While District residents enjoy a high quality of life, there are several trends emerging as we look to the future that will have significant impacts on our community. We have a rapidly growing proportion of seniors, but few young adults. Some local schools have closed and housing affordability may price young families out of our community. Jobs in the District were declining in the last decade, so homeowners may have to shoulder an increasing share of the tax burden to cover shortfalls. Population growth is modest, yet traffic congestion continues to be an issue as residents have to rely on their cars to get around.

Fill out an online Feedback Form Can’t attend an open house? Share your thoughts using an online Feedback Form available on our website at www.identity.dnv.org between June 1 and July 5, 2013.

Shape the identity of Lynn Valley Town Centre

Celebrating Lynn Valley’s Sense of Community

neighbours bump into each other in parks, on sidewalks and in the town square, we strengthen our community ties. This vision is updated to meet today’s circumstances where we need more affordable housing, employment and transportation options. A mix of new residential, commercial, park and community space, along with a better transportation network, will create a more vital and complete community.

LYNN VALLEY TOWN CENTRE is identified in the OCP as the District’s Municipal Town Centre. It is envisioned as a traditional “main street” shopping area that evokes Lynn Valley’s historic street car community and town centre stores where residents can walk or cycle to shops, jobs and businesses. As in days gone by, when

HAVE YOUR SAY

Here’s how to have your say on four possible options for the Lynn Valley Town Centre Implementation Plan: How do we provide an effective transportation system?

What community amenities are important to you and your family?

What kind of housing do we need through all the stages of life?

How can we maintain and enhance our Mountain Village look and feel?

What kinds of parks, open spaces and plazas do we need?

GET INVOLVED AND HAVE YOUR SAY We need your thoughts on the four options for the town centre each with different building forms, heights, parks, open spaces and community facilities. You will see drawings, models and screen-pads displaying the options. Once you’ve seen the concepts, tell us what is important to you and fill out a feedback form.

COME TO ONE OF OUR UPCOMING OPEN HOUSES (drop-in format) Lynn Valley Recreation Centre | Saturday, June 1 from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm Lynn Valley Library Community Room | Wednesday, June 5 from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm Argyle Secondary School | Saturday, June 8 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm Argyle Secondary School | Wednesday, June 12 from 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Tell us what you think of 4 Options for the future The District of North Vancouver wants to hear from you on HOW to best shape Lynn Valley Town Centre. We need your input on building form, height, character and amenities for the Town Centre. Your contribution will help shape a preferred option for Lynn Valley Town Centre as we move ahead to turn the vision into a reality. Get involved and comment on four different options for the future of Lynn Valley Town Centre.

Help Create the Town Centre Implementation Plan The District’s Official Community Plan (OCP) was adopted in 2011 after a two-year public process involving thousands of our citizens, businesses and stakeholders. At the heart of the OCP vision is a network of four interconnected town and village centres – vibrant areas with diverse housing, shopping and services – linked through an enhanced transit network. Most of the District’s projected population growth over the next two decades will be in these areas. We’ve now moved into the implementation phase of the OCP – turning our community’s vision into reality. In order to successfully realize our plan, we need to continue discussions with the community to shape the Lynn Valley Town Centre Plan.

Creating a lively town centre in Lynn Valley over the next 20 years is a key aspect of the OCP. Between now and October 2013, there will be numerous opportunities to have your say about what choices will best meet the future needs and strengthen the character of Lynn Valley. Check the next page to find out how to get involved.

Why do we need change? While District residents enjoy a high quality of life, there are several trends emerging as we look to the future that will have significant impacts on our community. We have a rapidly growing proportion of seniors, but few young adults. Some local schools have closed and housing affordability may price young families out of our community. Jobs in the District were declining in the last decade, so homeowners may have to shoulder an increasing share of the tax burden to cover shortfalls. Population growth is modest, yet traffic congestion continues to be an issue as residents have to rely on their cars to get around.

Metro mayors aim to siphon federal gas tax from TransLink JEFF NAGEL BLACK PRESS

M

etro Vancouver politicians are vowing to take back direct control of the flow of federal gas tax money that for years has been automatically funnelled to TransLink. The federal 10-cent-per-litre fuel tax collected by Ottawa – different from the 17-cents-per-litre TransLink levies directly – is returned to the region and used by TransLink, with the consent of Metro cities, mainly to buy new buses. That flow of $120 million per year may now be cut off as a tactic to press the provincial government to

THIS SATURDAY!

al district’s board could still authorize disbursement of funds to TransLink on a project-by-project basis. Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said she’s not sure if the money should be left in the hands of Metro Vancouver or TransLink. “I’d like to keep the money in my own municipality,” Jackson said, voicing support for an alternate scenario of dividing up the gas tax funds between each local city. Over the past seven years, the gas tax fund has financed the purchase of more than a thousand new buses or SkyTrain cars at a cost of $676 million. It has also funded two SeaBus replacements and contributed money to the Compass smart card and faregate system as well as Evergreen Line construction and Expo Line SkyTrain station upgrades. Over the next several years, TransLink proposes to use $768 million from the fund for another 500 conventional buses, 400 community shuttles, 620 HandyDarts, another SeaBus, refurbishment of 114 SkyTrain cars, construction of the new Hamilton transit centre, smart card readers on buses and another Expo Line upgrade. Denying gas tax money for bus purchases could also put TransLink under more pressure to find new funding sources – also the focus of difficult negotiations between area mayors and the province. TransLink officials say the gas tax transfers are only spent on projects that are part of a supplemental plan that has been proposed by the TransLink board and approved by the region’s mayors’ council. Project specifics must also be approved by the Union of B.C. Municipalities. Mayors contend the supplemental plans crafted by TransLink’s board are take-it-or-leave-it packages that are difficult for them to reject without crippling the transit system. They want a line-item control over the projects contained in a supplemental plan. twitter.com/nsoutlook 604.980.0607

agree to major reforms of TransLink. With the B.C. Liberals back in power in Victoria and less willing than the NDP to bend to demands for reform, some local mayors see the gas tax fund as a lever to apply more pressure. “It’s the only place where we have any control mechanism,” said Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, one of the mayors seeking to regain control over the transportation authority and its spending priorities. The federal gas tax agreement to return and disburse the funds is up for renegotiation and Metro has notified the province it wants direct control back. When the original gas tax agreement was struck in 2005, TransLink was still run by mayors and councillors appointed through Metro, rather than the unelected board that has ruled TransLink since 2008. “We should not be giving up one of the few chips we have,” Corrigan said. “We want to be able to control the funds.” If TransLink was cut off from gas tax transfers, the money could instead go to Metro projects such as new sewage treatment plants, a new waste-to-energy plant or water infrastructure projects. Those items are expected to cost taxpayers billions of dollars in the coming years. Corrigan said the region-

Tapping into something new Viva la Revolution! B.C.’s first craft beer Bible

A

s summer tumbles our way, it’s worth a trip over the bridge to visit Vancouver’s Olympic Village, the little neighbourhood that could, on some idle sunny afternoon. After poking around Habitat Island, enjoying the seaside furniture, and perhaps picking up a couple things at Urban Fare, you’ll be getting mighty thirsty and end up on the sunny patio at the Daniel Group’s Tap & Barrel with a hankering for a glass of wine (or two). Trust me. I’ve been there. Now, I know that the Group’s corporate sommelier David Stansfield has a zillion excellent B.C. wines on tap, the freshest way to enjoy a glass of the good stuff. Whether you’re tucking into mussels, pizzas, burgers or (Why not?) a little brunch, here are a few exclusives they’re drawing from their taps, wines you won’t find anywhere else, that will leave your palate singin’.

This is one of those Alsatian-inspired aromatic white blends that brings the sunshine, no matter the weather. A blend of Riesling from Osoyoos, Pinot Gris from the winery’s Fraser Valley region, and Summerland Gewürztraminer. While there’s less Gewürztraminer in the blend than the other two grapes, those lychee and lavender notes just jump out of the glass, followed by peaches and a good stream of citrus cheer.

GREAT SUMMER SHAPE UP

Five years ago, one would be hard pressed to write a 50-page pocket guide dedicated to the British Columbia craft beer scene, let alone find one on store shelves. Fast-forward to present day and firsttime book author/long-time beer writer Joe Wiebe strives to give his readers a crash course on the ever-evolving B.C. craft beer scene while keeping his page count near 200 in this impending release. Reading that statement, you’d be forgiven if you thought Wiebe spends too much time waxing poetic about our local beer, brewers, and breweries. Upon reading Craft Beer Revolution: The Insider’s Guide to BC Breweries, you’d realize he is in the process of documenting a modern-day brewing renaissance that will require yearly updates if current trends continue. Neatly divided by region, Craft Beer Revolution provides its readers with Coles Notes style summaries of every craft brewery in B.C., from Princeton to Prince Rupert, Vancouver to Vernon. Those new to our beer scene will appreciate the short-form history, basic stats, and list of best beers, while card-carrying Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) members will feel the need for deeper detail than this book provides. Each chapter gives readers the lowdown on at least three or four breweries, providing summaries of their top brews. Some breweries such as Central City and Driftwood have four beers listed next to their summary, while others such as Craig Street Brewpub only have two. Jumping to conclusions, one must assume this is done in order to keep the weaker brews in the province from being eviscerated by a well-meaning author, although there are hints of venom in a couple of his reviews. In the long run this is the sort of book that will be earmarked, flagged, and scribbled on by the ever-growing craft beer newbie contingent. Meanwhile the older, grumpier, “this used to be my scene and now it’s ruined” types will publicly begrudge the inevitable coming of age of a scene that was once theirs and theirs alone — while secretly leafing through the pages of Craft Beer Revolution in the comfort of their own homes, smiling as they think about just how far this whole craft beer thing has come. Viva la Revolution! —Chris Bjerrisgaard is the marketing director of Vancouver Craft Beer Week

Summer snowflakes, artificial grass and a fairy garden featured in the North Shore’s annual Art in the Garden Tour MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

T

he rain let up for hundreds of people who toured some of the best gardens on the North Shore this weekend. From English design to the latest in xeriscaping, the annual Art in the Garden had a bit for both expert and budding green-thumbs. Sixteen impressive gardens from North and West Van were on the self-guided tour this year. “We like the way it grew in funny angles, so we let it grow,” says gardener Heather Walker, who has rhubarb in the backyard of her Lynn Valley home. Instead of eating the rhubarb, she admires the way it grows straight up in the air. “It’s a UFO-looking type of plant,” she jokes. With artificial grass and a “fairy garden” containing dozens of miniature whimsical statues, this garden is anything but ordinary. A self-confessed amateur gardener, Walker works with Ron Gillies, who helps maintain the Summer Snowflake tree (a large plant with white flowers), the pretty Pride of London (tiny pale-pink flowers) and the bushes of red and purple azaleas. The idea of putting in artificial turf was just as much necessity as convenience because Gillies is allergic to cutting grass. Wanting a realistic look, Walker chose faux grass complete with dead-looking pieces underneath. “It’s lighter green, then you walk over there and from that angle it turns darker,” Walker tells The Outlook on a tour on the garden with music from jazz-folk group Moon Circus in the background. But no Art in the Garden tour is complete without the artists themselves. Vancouver-based artists Adam Lupton

CONSCIOUS SEDATION IS THE SOLUTION FOR SENSITIVE PATIENTS Do you have a sensitive gag reflex that makes visits to the dentist uncomfortable or embarrassing? Is your gag reflex a barrier, preventing you from seeking treatment or having critical x-rays or cleanings? If so you are definitely not alone. A sensitive gag reflex is a natural response for many of our patients, but it doesn’t hinder them from receiving treatment to keep their teeth in the best health possible. Conscious sedation is the solution for our patients with very sensitive gag responses. It eliminates the barrier of gagging and allows you to have treatment performed more comfortably than you probably believe possible. Conscious sedation allows you to relax completely, essentially eliminating the anxiety causing gag reflex, and more treatment can be done in a much shorter appointment. If a bad gag reflex has been holding you back from having the healthy smile you deserve, please visit us to see how conscious sedation can help.

We have had some delightfully unexpected sunny days this past little while, and although our weeks are still sprinkled with our wonderful wet-coast weather, summer could show up at any moment. My favourite hot summer trend this year is the Bermuda short. That’s right! Forget about short shorts and jump into a pair of these versatile bottoms that will take you through a number of different looks all the way through the summer. From a loose, casual look, to a more fitted, sleek version, these shorts are a forgiving style on most figures. Paired with sandals and a looser t-shirt for a casual look, you can easily take them into the evening by throwing on a pair of heels and a sheer, flowy blouse. They are even officefriendly and give a nice alternative to skirts when worn with a tailored jacket on top. This look is super sexy on guys too. Even just a t-shirt and a sport jacket is a great edgy look for a summer bbq or patio brunch. And since patterned, coloured bottoms are all the rage, why not try them in plaid? At So Blu we even have reversible ones - you get two shorts in one! Come in and check out the wide selection of Bermudas we have for both men and women, and welcome the summer in style!

IT’S WEDDING SEASON! THINKING OF HAIR AND MAKEUP IDEAS?

Your hair and makeup are the finishing touches on the complete bridal look and it is important that you and your stylist are on the same page. To ensure that you are the most beautiful bride there are a few things to remember... Find a stylist who specializes in updo’s and styling, this is your special day and you do NOT want a bad hair day! Sit down with the stylist a month or two in advance for a consultation. Discuss your theme, show them your dress, bring photos of styles you love and styles you do not love. A good stylist will help you determine a suitable style for your face shape, body type and dress. A casual beachy updo looks great for a daytime garden wedding but won’t exactly translate to an evening cocktail soiree. A trial session will help you to feel comfortable with the style and allows you time to communicate with your stylist. At Verve, consultations with our Creative Director are complimentary and our stylists are all well versed in styling for weddings. Our year round work on fashion shows and photo shoots keeps us on top of current styles and our team works seamlessly to make your day amazing!

Adding colour to your garden MAGGIE CALLOWAY ContrIbutor

A

fter long, long months of grey rainy days, our impulse at the first sign of spring is to run to the garden shop and load up with flats of anything with colour. But we all need to take a deep breath and make a plan. Plants, like kids, do well when the basics are taken care of first before the really fun stuff of instant colour commences. It’s first, second and third about the soil, ladies and gentlemen; next about the weeding… just what you didn’t want to hear. But get the fundamentals right and you will have a wonderful garden this year and in years to come. Glenn Andersen is from Nordic Nurseries, a wholesale grower providing root cuttings and garden-ready plants to nurseries right across Canada. What he doesn’t know about annual and perennial flowering plants is, well, hardly worth knowing. “By the end of May we don’t usually need to worry about cold snaps so this is the time to plant. By this time of year most of the annuals are starting to flower,” Andersen says. “Before planting use March and April to prepare the soil; if your soil needs a boost this is the time to add composted

manure and other supplements and weed, weed, weed. As soon as the weather warms the weeds start sprouting but if you are diligent pulling them before they go to seed you will be rewarded throughout the growing season. Preparing your beds is vital. For instance if you have clay soil you are not going to have success unless you fix it. Plants like soil which is fluffy and loaded with organic matter. I have heavy soil at home so I throw in some sand and manure every couple of years, just something to break the soil up.” He advises doing your homework and matching the plant to the reality of your specific garden; it is not one size fits all. If part of your garden is in shade for most of the day you don’t want to plant, say, geraniums which require lots of sun. The great thing these days is there are huge varieties to choose from for both shade and sun so you are not deprived of choice. Just read the excellent labels which come with the plant pot and act accordingly. One tip, if the labels advise part sun and shade it’s not a good idea to plant in a spot which gets hot afternoon sun. Conversely if they say full sun it doesn’t mean an hour in the morning. Pay attention to where you plant and you will reap the rewards. “Another tip is if you are short of time

Lawn sprinkling regulations 2013

don’t plant flowers which need deadheading every week,” Andersen says. “Plant something like Supertunia Bubblegum two feet apart, they will fill in and look fabulous all summer; it’s a wow plant. Another plant like that is Lobularia Snow Princess. It looks a little like an Alyssum but a lot more vigorous and [has] flowers nonstop sometimes through November.” Not to say you shouldn’t plant those which require time, dead-heading, etc. but be selective. Plant loads of low maintenance plants then you have the time to give loving care to the more, shall we say, finicky. There is nothing quite like having a morning cup of tea in a stunning setting and these days, especially with plants labeled Proven Winners grown for this climate, it is within the reach of us all.

Plants such as Supertunia Bubblegum, top left, Lobularia Snow Princess, top right, and Starfire, above, are particularly good choices for spring planting and don’t take as much upkeep as other varieties. Submitted photos

Building a home that’s kind to the environment MAGGIE CALLOWAY ContrIButor

T

he news is full of stories about how it is almost impossible for a young couple first starting out to afford to live in Vancouver and, using a conventional yardstick, the information is correct for most but there is a way to not only live in a beautiful house but to also contribute to the solution of affordable housing. No, it’s not winning the lottery but by being very smart in finding a way to build the house you want, where you want it and how to afford the whole project financially. One young couple found the property they wanted in the location they wanted to live in, but the 1940s house, on inspection, was not salvageable. There was a lot of rot and water damage and the decision was made to tear the house down and start from scratch. In stepped Samuel and Elizabeth FitzZaland of Green City Builders Inc., who are not only a very talented team of renovators but are passionate about introducing as many real green, not green-washed, products into their builds. A plan was put together to build the main house with a garden suite on the lower level plus a laneway house, all very carefully designed to fit the lot perfectly. The couple was able to afford the house because of the rental income stream generated from both the suite and the laneway house. At the same time, because of providing rental accommodation, they neatly fit into the municipality’s plan of innovative housing. By building three homes on one lot they took the pressure off development elsewhere. “The clients, once the decision was taken to tear down the existing house, decided to redevelop the property. They wanted a beautiful, gracious home for themselves and an important point was the rental potential to supplement their income and support the mortgage,” says Elizabeth FitzZaland. “This was also an opportunity to integrate some green building practices throughout the build. This was interesting for us for there were some environmentally friendly elements that were not construction-related as much as planning-related. The property is really tight, only 33 feet wide by 108 feet deep and because a laneway house size depends on the depth and width of the lot, they were right up against both of those measurements but we were able to design to those limitations.” The outcome of this build is a very small, 450-square-foot laneway house over two level. The one-bedroom secondary suite is in the lower part of the house, built above-grade as much as possible, which makes it quite bright. The homeowners’ part of the house is on two levels, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. To further make this financially affordable in the short term the homeowners are considering inviting a home-share student to share their home until they start a family themselves. Because the residence is close to Langara College, this is a viable option for them. “Out in the market people still want quartz countertops, new cabinets and floors and a gracious master bath with separate showers, which are really luxury items but they found a way to do all this with a very humble starting budget, but with the income streams it all become very affordable,” FitzZaland says. Included in this home are as many “green” builds as their budget allowed. A framing technique was used which uses larger lumber spaced further apart so more insulation is possible; plus it reduces thermal bridging so you get a tight interior space. To get fresh air into the house they installed a heat recovery ventilator which recovers 90 per cent of the heat that would normally be lost by pumping air out as the fresh air comes in. Once the house was wrapped, and before the drywall was installed, they had an energy audit done so they could identify any leaks and sealed them at that stage. In addition they installed a combination instant hot water system which also heats their home through a radiant heating system. From beginning to end this whole project was extremely well-thought-out by utilizing the site for maximum return and investing in an eco-friendly build which will pay dividends going forward.

Some of the features of this eco-friendly home include a basement suite, laneway home, stainless-steel appliances and a luxurious bathroom that is made for relaxation. Martin Knowles photo

one are the days when a few plastic chairs and a table, dragged out of the garden shed when the sun finally shines, constitutes our garden furniture. Now we are creating garden rooms coordinated to the house décor so there are no jarring notes when transitioning from house to garden. The really great thing is there has been such advances in outdoor furniture material you can pretty much find the perfect fit for your taste and budget. No more dragging the furniture in at the end of the season; a good thing too when houses are becoming a bit smaller and space is at a premium. Jerry Schmidt, the owner of the Vancouver Sofa Company, has a few tips. “Outdoor furniture has completely changed in the last four or five years. Outdoor space has become an extension of the interior living space and the quality and style of outdoor furniture rivals that of interior design,” he says. “Teak used to be the gold standard but now wicker resin is the furniture of *Limited time offer.

Fabrics have also come a long way with lots of choices in style and colour. Memories of scratchy cushions have given way to soft pliable rain- and sunresistant fabric. “A person can choose a style and colour of outdoor furniture and the style and color of cushions and pillows and design a very personalized garden room the family can enjoy for years,” Schmidt says.

Most of us can’t afford to decorate our outdoor space in one fell swoop but we do need a plan so we can pick up pieces as we go along without ending up with a hodgepodge of styles. Lots of happy memories can be stored away about special dinners with family and friends under the stars.

Wallpaper becoming a popular accessory in home decor KERRY VITAL ContRibutoR

E B

veryone has a nightmare story about wallpaper, whether it’s trying to remove it from your home or growing up surrounded by crazy prints in every room. ut recently, wallpaper has seen a resurgence, helped along by options that suit every taste, style and budget. Wallpaper has been around since the early 15th century, when it started life as a cheaper alternative to panelling and tapestries that were quite expensive. Over the years, several different trends came and went, from Chinese-style art based on silk wall coverings to flocked French designs to the panoramic scenes that are still seen in museums around Europe. And now, the tide is turning again. “The role of wallpaper within decor has really changed,” says Sandra Bracken, vice-president of marketing for Bouclair. “It is no longer about wallpapering a room – it is mostly for an accent wall.” Long gone are the days of large multicoloured floral prints and faux brick. Now, Bracken says wallpaper has become a lot more contemporary. “Customers are loving the patterns that are modern, geometric and add a touch of colour,” she says. “The prints are new and modern. They accent a room, they don’t overpower [it].” Sarah Gallop, principal designer at Sarah Gallop Design Inc., says wallpaper can be a great option for those who are on a budget but are looking for something new and exciting. “People have a bad association with it,” she says. “But it gives such a glamour that paint doesn’t have ... Some of the new wallpapers are gorgeous” and can be easily removed if you decide you want a different look. North Vancouver interior designer Sheryn Calvert of Calvert Design Studio agrees, noting that wallpaper can also be used as a decor item. “Do you have a plain white bookshelf? Add some wallpaper for colour and texture!” she says. “People really care about decorating their home and wallpaper has become the new accessory,” says Bracken. “You can create a room that’s unique, interesting and it updates a room instantly.”

Wallpaper is no longer limited to large fusty florals and faux finishes. Now, you can find wallpaper that will accent any room in a variety of styles and budgets. Submitted photos

Discovering some old-fashioned flair with stone MAGGIE CALLOWAY ContrIbutor

B

uilding with stone has to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, method of creating shelter. Anyone who has watched documentaries on the Knowledge Network has seen proof of stone shelters built six thousand years ago and earlier. In fact, if it wasn’t for stone a lot of our early history would be lost in the mists of time. The same basic fact exists today; stone lasts where other materials such as wood have a limited lifespan. In Europe building with stone is the norm and stonemasons in Continental Europe have traditionally learned from fathers, uncles and pretty well everyone in the village from a very early age. If you married and left home everyone in the village gathered together to build the newly married couple a home and these homes are passed down through many generations. The satisfaction of taking the right stone, shaping it to fit and building a thing of beauty, knowing that your work will stand the test of time and give shelter to people through the generations must be immense. Life is a bit more structured now but the art of the stonemason, and an art it is, is still valued. Imagine building something you know, if left alone, will last for hundreds if not thousands of years. Not many professions can make that claim. Gregory Sorokin is an owner of Vancouver Masonry who learned his trade the old-fashioned way from his family and members of his community in Europe. It shows in both the stunning designs and the care he takes with each project. “Stone can really enhance a home with trim, a great chimney, stone walkways and patios,” he says. “But remember all stone is not the same; there is different stone for different purposes and (a stonemason will be) very knowledgeable about what is the best for each project.” Is there anything other than stone that can turn an ordinary house into magnificent? Stone trim, walkways, retaining walls and a private patio can work magic. “The advice I would give to a homeowner thinking of adding stonework to their home is to spend some time looking at other homes to give them an idea about what they want, where they want it, what the purpose is, and what kind of look do they want; what kind of stone,” Sorokin says. “Budget of course is important. Look through... websites... to get an idea of what will work on their particular property and of course (a stonemason) can offer advice and suggestions. All this is very important because stonework can last forever.” Making your home your own, distinct from your neighbours, and creating a beautiful setting is definitely worth thinking about.

Good wine deserves good storage

Relax.

When it comes to wine storage, you have many options to suit a range of budgets. From full cellars to a simple wine fridge, life can be delicious with a good bottle of wine.

Allow Little Star to work with you to create a place to escape and unwind all summer long.

KERRY VITAL CONTRIBUTOR

K

icking back with a glass of wine at the end of a long week or tasting a new bottle with friends and family at a dinner party is one of life’s pleasures. Maybe you’re happy with having a bottle of white in the fridge and a bottle of red on the counter, but there is a lot more to think about when you’re considering how to store a collection. From where to put it to what kind of storage you want, it’s best to consult a professional when it comes to wine storage. “The paramount thing to think about is the quantity of wine and then build it from there,” says Gary Bombay of Blue Grouse Cellars. “A small collection of 50 bottles or less is more suited to a wine fridge, whereas a serious collector who has the space would look to a cellar.” Wine fridges are also better suited to the homeowner looking to have white wine ready to drink at any point, as it should be consumed at about 6 to 8 degrees Celsius, whereas red wine should be room temperature (about 17 to 18 degrees Celsius). “That’s room temperature in a European stone building,” Bombay says. Typically, wine cellars are located underground or in the basement, but Bombay says he’s recently seen a trend towards homeowners looking to build a wine cellar above ground that can also be used as a showpiece. “They’re looking for a decorative cellar that they’re proud to show off,” he says. “Some are also including a tasting room outside.” Tasting wine inside the cellar itself is not a good plan, Bombay notes. “It’s not a climate suitable for drinking red wine,” he says, adding that most cellars are about 15 degrees Celsius. There are several different options available in wine cellars, from the modern to the traditional. Many people think of rows upon rows of wooden racks when they think of a wine cellar, but Bombay says that there has been some interest in installing modern cellars with metal and glass. “Many companies are labelling wine with showy labels,” he says. “Our VintageView racking holds bottles horizontally, making them easy to find.” The most typical wood that Bombay uses in his cellars is California redwood. “It performs well in a humid environment, which wine cellars are,” he says. “You also want a low-odour wood, as you don’t want to introduce a strong wood such as a cedar which imparts itself on the wine.” What to include in a wine cellar is a matter of taste, but shelving and climate control is of particular importance.

Gary Bombay, above, says he’s seen a recent trend towards more modern wine cellars that are built with glass and metal instead of the traditional wood. Rob Newell photo above

“You can build a reasonable cellar for $5,000 to $10,000, but it’s easy to spend many times that when you get into the exotic woods, decoration, staining,” Bombay says. If you’re thinking about purchasing a wine fridge, Bombay recommends looking for one with a dual-zone control so you can keep your white wine cool and your red wine warmer, and shelves that slide out to easily access your wine. He also notes that people can find wine storage that looks like a piece of furniture, from a cabinet to a credenza. “You need to weigh whether it’s just for storage or you want a showpiece,” he says. While there’s much to think about when you’re deciding on how you want to store your wine, it’s worth it in the end when you can pull out the perfect bottle to go with any meal or to use as a gift. “It’s really fun to pull something out of the cellar that is no longer available,” Bombay says. “A bottle of wine that can’t be found anymore is a really special gift.”
