he District of North Vancouver added some real meat to the bones of its official community plan this week, unveiling its “new urban heart” in Lower Lynn. That’s how district planner Brian Bydwell described the future town centre anchored by the Seylynn Village condo project at the new development’s official launch over the weekend. Condo marketer Nick Askew was more evocative in describing the project. “A little bit of Coal Harbour” on the North Shore is what the Pacesetter Marketing president called the soon-to-be three-tower, 790unit condo development near the Second Narrows Bridge. At 24-storeys, “Beacon” was the first of the three towers to launch on Saturday, with an expected move-in date of 2015 for its 201 condos and five two-story townhouses. Construction of the other two Seylynn towers — “Compass” and “Apex” — will follow in accordance with market demand, with the 32-storey Apex set to be the tallest building on the North Shore when construction begins, likely in 2015. But the Seylynn development is more than just a residential project, Bydwell emphasized. The project heralds the arrival of the Lower Lynn Town Centre; an official-community-plan initiative to overhaul the area between Highway 1, Lynn Creek and Main Street. Lower Lynn is one of four new district town centres, including Lynn Valley, Lower Capilano-Marine Drive and Maplewood, slated for residential densification and urban renewal in the form of better pedestrian access to parks, transit and local businesses. It’s all part of a district-wide push to address the uniquely North Shore problem of the “missing generation,” Bydwell said, meaning those twenty- and thirty-somethings who were raised on the North Shore but were later forced to migrate elsewhere in the Lower Mainland due to high housing costs and lack of employment at home. “Currently in the district we don’t have a broad housing choice,” Bydwell said, adding the problem has long been a strain on local industries and would-be employers, as well. “What they told us is that it was very difficult to grow their businesses or to actually establish a business here because it was very difficult to get people to live here because, again, it was so expensive for workers,” he said. The district’s official community plan calls for an additional 20,000 residents in the district over the next 20 years, and aims to reshape the municipality around the four high- to mid-density residential and transit nodes. “We want to grow in a way where we create compact communities,” Bydwell explained, stressing the district is no longer “intending to grow at the edges” as in days gone by, but rather will grow taller and denser on already developed land. tcoyne@northshroeoutlook.com twitter.com/toddcoyne

hen the time came for Richard Harmon to move out of the family home, there was no doubt in his mind where he wanted to live: as close to Stanley Park as possible. The 21-year-old actor — who appears as the brooding Julian Randol on Showcase’s hit sci-fi crime procedural Continuum, and as Richard Sylmore on A&E’s Bates Motel — moved into an apartment a stone’s throw away from Lost Lagoon in 2012. “I’m so close to downtown, yet at the same time, when I go to sleep at night, it’s quiet outside my window,” says the West Vancouver-raised thespian in a recent interview at Denman Street’s Central Bistro. “There’s so much natural beauty here.” Outdoor activities are a central part of Harmon’s West End routine: playing basketball and football in Stanley Park, running along on the seawall and traversing the gravel paths around Lost Lagoon. This last activity is not without its hazards: namely, what Harmon playfully refers to as a frenzied ongoing turf war between himself and a gang of angry birds. It started, he explains with mock gravitas, nearly six months ago. A West Vancouver-raised actor Richard Harmon. goose hissed at him during one of his walks. This was followed by months of Laura McGuire photo honks, hoots and “stink-eyed stares” from a motley band of ducks, geese and swans. “And not two weeks ago, I’m walking down my street and I hear hissing and there’s a goose on my street and I was like, ‘this isn’t your turf, this is not where you belong, sir,’” he says, laughing. In many ways, Harmon’s tranquil West End life (angry birds notwithstanding) provides a perfect counterbalance to the stress of his high-profile acting gigs. “There’s a lot of responsibility that comes with the jobs, because I want to make the people who are kind enough to actually pay me to do what I love proud of me,” says Harmon. On June 8, Harmon took home a best supporting actor Leo Award for his work as the dark and nuanced Julian on Continuum (one of seven wins for Continuum that evening). “I read the scripts and I’m wowed because I don’t know if anyone has ever trusted me to do things as much as they have,” he says. “It’s very fun to be evil.” Audiences don’t often get to see Harmon’s characters having fun, given his proclivity for grey roles. “I think it takes a lot of people by surprise when they first meet me that I’m actually a happy person,” says Harmon. “I don’t brood in real life.” If Harmon were to brood about anything at all, it would likely be his ongoing war with the Lost Lagoon birds — a war to which he doesn’t see an end in sight. “If we could just coexist with each other and respect each other’s boundaries, I think it’ll be a war well fought on both sides,” he says with a deep sigh.

Warning for longboarders

There’s more to people with dementia than just their dementia. Let’s start seeing them for who they are. It all begins with awareness, understanding and real conversations about the disease. So let’s start talking. Test your attitude towards dementia at www.alzheimer.ca/letstalkaboutdementia.

Last week, West Van police issued an urgent safety message for speed-seeking longboarders: “It’s your body versus thousands of pounds of metal and plastic.” It’s a message worth repeating. The warning to “carefully consider personal safety” came after yet another crash involving longboarders in recent weeks. This time a pair of longboarders were injured after colliding with a parked truck in the British Properties. The latest North Shore accident comes less than two weeks after a 17-year-old boarder suffered a severe head injury after being involved in a collision near Horseshoe Bay. Last week a 19-year-old male collided with a vehicle at 13th Street and Esquimalt Avenue and was fortunate to escape with only facial cuts. Accidents aren’t just happening on the steep streets of the North Shore. On Saturday a 12-year-old boarder in Maple Ridge was seriously injured. Longboarding accidents also happened in Victoria and the Sunshine Coast last week.

Longboarding is prohibited on some North Van streets and all public streets in West Van and carries a $45 fine — but as Const. Jeff Palmer reminded riders in a WVPD release issued last week, the “West Vancouver Police believe the risks of personal injury or worse should outweigh any consideration of a bylaw ticket or enforcement consequence.” As Palmer notes, the safety equipment for longboarding is primarily designed to protect riders from spills and “will offer very limited protection against injury resulting from collisions with much larger motor vehicles. “Public streets are a space shared by many types of vehicles and longboarders are among the smallest and most vulnerable in that space. West Vancouver police urge longboard riders to seek out organized events on road surfaces that are not open to public use to more effectively manage the risks of the sport.” —The Outlook

’ve always said it’s like a little bit of the Academy Awards right here in B.C. – but the truth is that the Leo Awards are much, much more. And when you consider all the talented people that work in B.C. film and television, there really is a lot to celebrate. The 15th anniversary gala of the Leo Awards was held last weekend as the Westin Bayshore rolled out the red carpet and put on the ritz to welcome a record number of deserving nominees. The local stars, directors, producers, voice actors and stuntmen that have helped make Hollywood North a reality were all winners. Comedians Brent Butt and wife Nancy Robertson were spectacular as hosts and live music by Hal Beckett and The Vancouver Film Orchestra really added big glamour to make this one of the best years ever! Congratulations also to the many volunteers who helped organize the event. Job well done!

Teens in crisis With the number of teens visiting Lions Gate ER for mental health problems doubling in three years, youth advocates are calling for more services By Michaela Garstin

D

an’s 15-year-old daughter began wearing long-sleeve shirts after she started cutting herself. Bullies at her high school on the North Shore were relentless, taunting her online, calling her names and physically hurting her. She spiraled into depression and, not seeing a way out, soon became suicidal. One particularly bad evening she wound up in Lions Gate ER suffering from extreme anxiety. She waited eight hours to be admitted, says her father, was given Ativan to calm her down and eventually transferred to BC Children’s Hospital for treatment. After spending three days at the hospital, the diagnosis: Post traumatic stress. “We wanted to stay away from pills but eventually we had to go there,” Dan tells The Outlook, visibly concerned for his teenage daughter. Despite several school programs on the North Shore that help with depression, anxiety and other mental health issues, the family decided home schooling was the best option. While the circumstances vary greatly, cases of teens in crisis have been steadily increasing on the North Shore. Over a three-year period in 2010, 2011 and 2012, Lions Gate emergency room visits for depression, suicidal thoughts and self-harm have more than doubled for teens. Noticing an increase in youth mental health problems, Dr. Tom Barnett, a psychiatrist on the North Shore, commissioned a report to show the exact numbers. In line with his prediction, ER visits have shot up in recent years. “Our community is not well served in spite of the fact that we have two ministries – Health and the MCFD [Ministry of Children and Family Development] – both running parallel programs in mental health for youth, with parallel bureaucracies and overheads,” says Barnett of what he describes as a complex and often frustrating system parents must navigate on the North Shore. The report also looks at Richmond Hospital, a facility Barnett says is run much the same as Lions Gate, but doesn’t show the same results. The number of teens with mental health issues remains nearly the same over the three-year period, with a few dips. Noticing the trend the report outlines, Capilano University communications instructor Michael Markwick ran in the last provincial election as an Independent for West Van-Capilano to advocate for teens on the North Shore with mental health issues. “There’s been a lot of studying but no action,” he tells The Outlook. “It’s clearly not working for kids on the North Shore, these numbers clearly show that.”

**** Dan’s daughter is doing somewhat better now that she’s home-schooled. But with Facebook and other websites, bullying can never be left behind. Diane, a mother of two boys in North Vancouver with disabilities, knows this well. In her experience even video games, which can be hooked up to the Internet, are targets for bullies who harass other players by making threats and name-calling. Her younger son, who is eight years old, has suffered from depression and anxiety for a few years. “He started saying things like ‘I wish I was dead’ and he drew a random person shooting him,” she explains, noting this is an early age for symptoms to start. After his problems continued, Diane saw no other choice but to transfer him to another school. Both parents say the wait-list to see a publicly funded counsellor is too long, so they are seeking treatment privately. And they aren’t surprised the number of teens coming to Lions Gate ER with mental health issues has doubled in the last three years. To be exact, in 2009/10 92 teens visited the ER, 152 in 2010/11 and 193 in 2011/12. Although lower, the number of children up to 13 years old increased proportionally, from 10 to 13 to 20. A population increase of just over 2 per cent on the North Shore doesn’t account for the jump. One thing is for certain, these parents insist, there needs to be child psychiatric beds on the North Shore so youth don’t need to go to BC Children’s Hospital, which can further complicate an already traumatizing experience. Dr. Lance Patrick, the head of psychiatry at Lions Gate Hospital, says the hospital’s new HOpe Centre would ideally have beds for children. The $62-million acute mental health facility is still under construction and will eventually include a 26-bed inpatient psychiatric unit. This area, however, isn’t specific to children.

www.northshoreoutlook.com www.northshoreoutlook.com “The hospital foundation… raised enough funds to have an extra floor that is available for further development for just these kind of reasons,” Patrick tells The Outlook. “We’ve been depending on BC Children’s and BC Children’s is really a provincial resource not a secondary care resource. “Getting access to BC Children’s service is very difficult, it takes time and means the children that need the service aren’t getting it quickly.” Another option, says Dr. Steve Mathias, Vancouver Coastal Health’s regional youth medical leader, is mobile crisis units similar to those in Vancouver and Richmond. A nurse or social worker, along with support from an on-call doctor, would go into houses to treat patients with mental health problems. This way teens who don’t want to access services at the hospital or in school can get help. Students on the North Shore have access to school counsellors who are trained to work with mental health issues on a short-term basis, as well as programs that offer support. For some students, however, in-school treatment isn’t enough. The North Shore’s increase in emergency room visits isn’t a unique problem, says Mathias, but seen in many communities throughout Canada. “We’re finding increased emergency room utilization across the country for young people looking for mental health support,” he says. “This is something we’ve found in the region — at all the local hospitals the number of visits have gone up — and across the country as well.” Although exact statistics aren’t readily available, he doesn’t think numbers on the North Shore have gone up disproportionately compared to other places. “The North Shore is a catchment area for both urban and rural sites so Lions Gate is a hospital where folks all the way up to Bella Bella will come to. It’s a different population, it’s a different set up in terms of services right now.” Spokespeople for both Vancouver Coastal Health and the Ministry of Children and Family say they are focusing on improving wait-lists and support for parents navigating the system, as well as improving the transition process as teens move to adult mental health services. **** The increasing number of youth with mental health problems on the North Shore won’t be fixed with more money, says Dr. Barnett. The problem, he explains, is a complicated system that leaves parents frustrated and ultimately puts children at risk. Dan’s daughter was lucky to be transferred to BC Children’s Hospital relatively quickMichael Markwick ran in the last provincial ly. Getting patients election as an Independent for West Vanfrom the North Shore Capilano to advocate for teens on the North in for treatment is Shore with mental health issues. “extremely difficult,” Jennifer Gauthier photo says Barnett. With no specific areas for adolescents with mental health issues, some parents are left confused with the system at Lions Gate Hospital. Currently if a 14-year-old girl, for example, comes to the ER with anxiety, she would be sent to the pediatrics ward to be seen by a different psychiatrist each day. If the girl was two years older, she would be sent to the adult psychiatry ward. “It’s not locked. The family would need to hire a sitter if she was suicidal,” says Markwick with concern. Their solution: It’s time to stop studying the problem and find a solution. “Multiple reviews have not resulted in significant changes, and yet another is scheduled for later this month,” says Barnett, adding positive results won’t be seen without improvements to out-patient and early detection programs. One solution, he says, is to have either the Ministry of Health or MCFD in charge to avoid confusion. Whatever the solution, Mathias says Vancouver Coastal Health is looking into options. “We’re committed to solving the issues and having a committed and coordinated approach because right now the emergency room is the point-in-contact for so many youth in crisis,” he says. But Markwick says change isn’t happening fast enough. As former chief of staff for the Ontario Human Rights Commission, he is working with several parents on the North Shore to file a complaint under the BC Human Rights Act. “These kids because of their age and handicap are being denied service available to everyone,” he says. “It has to be a politically led solution. The Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Children and Family are ultimately responsible. “A new cabinet is in place so let’s solve this together, but it has to be based on evidence, not politics.” *Parents’ names have been changed

Western Canada’s Best attended Charity event

Multi-media Journalist The North Shore Outlook, a weekly publication serving more than 56,350 homes in North and West Vancouver, has an opening for a full-time, multi-media journalist. The successful candidate will have diverse writing capabilities, including a flair for narrative. Advanced photography and video skills will be key attributes, as well as excellent time management. An ideal applicant will have a strong grasp of social media best practices (Twitter, Facebook, etc.), a passion for online journalism, and an understanding of how to tailor content accordingly. We are looking for someone who will be a key contributor to the core print product, while bringing creativity and innovation to our web-based branding. Knowledge of basic Photoshop, iMovie and InDesign is a must. Candidates should have a diploma/degree in journalism, or a related field. The successful candidate will show keen attention to detail, work well under deadline pressures, and be willing to learn in a fast-paced environment, as well as have the ability to teach others as new strategies and techniques are incorporated into our media package.

n Monday, 26 single-use cameras were handed out to the first participants in the inaugural Hope in Shadows North Shore Photography Contest. More disposable cameras will be distributed through other agencies like the North Shore Neighbourhood House and Lookout Society Shelter throughout the week. In total, 95 cameras will be given out. The contest, which is run by the Pivot Legal Society, is based on a similar project that the non-profit has been organizing for low-income residents of the Downtown Eastside for the past 10 years. In this popular annual contest, winning photographs get published in a calendar that’s then sold by street vendors who get a chance to earn income through calendar sales. The contest is coming to the North Shore thanks to a pair of Grade 12 students in Argyle secondary’s social justice program. Earlier this year Lindsay Rideout and Chloe Noel, along with some other classmates who had volunteered at a shelter/kitchen in the DTES, decided to host an art exhibit in North Vancouver featuring photos from the Hope in Shadows calendar. The idea was to bring awareness to issues related to poverty and homelessness and raise money for the program. Shortly after, some of those same students attended a WE Day event in Vancouver and learned about a Telus-sponsored community initiative video contest that gave the winner $20,000 to donate to their favourite charitable organization. With just days remaining until the contest deadline Rideout and Noel headed downtown to make a video about Hope in Shadows. It resonated with the judges. With the money from the Argyle students’ winning entry Pivot has been able to expand the Hope in Shadows project to the North Shore. During the 3-day contest participants will be asked to take pictures based on the theme “What we value about our community.” When they return the contest camera they get a $5 honorarium, two sets of their prints and film negatives. The photos will later be evaluated by a panel of judges who will select the top 10 photos, which will all receive a cash prize. Two of the photos will appear in the 2014 Hope in Shadows Calendar which will be available in North Van from licensed street vendors. The contest is open to anyone using community

Argyle students Lindsay Rideout (left) and Chloe Noel were handing out cameras on Tuesday for the inaugural Hope in Shadows Photo Contest. Submitted photo spaces and services on the North Shore. Carolyn Wong, project coordinator for Hope in Shadows, says the society has been wanting to take the photo project to another community for a while. “It’s really inspiring,” says Wong of the work by Rideout, Noel and their classmates. Wong says the Hope in Shadows contest gives a community that doesn’t always have voice a chance to speak up, through images, and tell their stories and what they value about the community. “I’m really excited about what photos will come out of this process,” says Wong. Wong, who’s been involved with Hope in Shadows for five years, says photography really seems to resonate with contest participants as a medium “to explain themselves and tell their stories.” For Noel, the process has been an educational journey that has helped shatter stereotypes surrounding homelessness and poverty. “I’ve definitely been educated in very interesting ways through this process,” she says. For her, the biggest lesson has been to be “respectful to everyone you meet no matter where they are or what they look like because everyone has a background story that has led them to where they are.” Rideout realizes that not everyone understands the extent to which homeless and poverty affect many North Shore residents. “It’s just not to the same degree as downtown. People might not see it.” And as the pair discovered this week when handing out cameras there were many youth not much older than themselves who were using services on the North Shore. Rideout believes strongly in the Hope in Shadows program and the different elements it brings together. “Artistic talent, sharing stories and being a source of income.” “It’s a great idea and great program.” To find out more about Hope in Shadows, visit hopeinshadows.com.

» TASTING NOTES

Alberto Antonini’s wines from home and away L ast week I had the good fortune of attending an event at Vancouver Urban Winery with one of the wine world’s brightest luminaries. Dubbed “A Conversation with Alberto Antonini,” the evening was a peek into the brilliant mind of the man himself, a superstar winemaker who travels the world, selecting winery projects to work with where he sees incredible potential. Alberto actually hits British Columbia a few times every year to work with Summerland’s Okanagan Crush Pad, but we’ll get to that in a bit. A Tuscan-born veteran of the industry who made wine at notable places like Frescobaldi and Antinori in Italy, his global consulting began years ago with a friend in Argentina who simply called him up looking for his help. Jumping at the opportunity, partially because he thought Argentina to be an interesting and exotic place to apply his craft, it was the start of a new career that’s now found him consulting in Chile, California, South Africa, Spain and elsewhere. He despises the title “Flying Winemaker,” because he feels that many of those who embrace that label apply a generic recipe wherever they go, creating a global sameness in the wines they work with, regardless of the place they come from. Alberto’s vision is different; cultivating wines that speak to their terroir, expressing a sense of place with as little winery intervention as possible. He came of age in a world where both vines and wines were pretty much doctored; polluted with pesticides and herbicides, a few added enzymes here, a splash of tartaric acid there, and has come to learn that there’s a better way. He says that the more he knows, the less he does, in the goal of building genuine, honest wines that taste like the land where they grew. Here are some of those wines he’s had a hand in:

Cap U votes to cut programs

A

fter weeks of protests from Capilano University students and faculty, school administrators have approved a budget that will terminate many of the university’s art, technology and science programs at campuses in North Vancouver, Squamish and the Sunshine Coast.

The cuts, approved by the board of governors Tuesday night, are to address an existing $1.3-million budget shortfall. Cries of “Shame!” rose up from the more than 100 student and faculty attendees protesting the vote, as a surprise secret ballot

left a final vote tally of 11 board members in favour of the program-slashing budget and two against. One member spoiled their paper ballot and another abstained from voting altogether. Many faculty and students complained the budget shortfall was used as a tool to ram through a reorganization of the school’s programming that puts profits ahead of education. Brent Calvert is an Interactive Design instructor at CapU and one of the dozens of faculty members likely to be without work when his program is phased out with the new budget. continued, PAGE 21

Leona Geall

John O’Flynn

Leona Geall has traded in wine, her ultimate vice, for carbonated water, as she sets off on her weight loss journey. The 55-year-old Upper Lonsdale resident began packing on some extra pounds after she went through menopause. Leona says she now shudders when looking at photos of herself. “I used to be real skinny, 120 pounds in my teens,” she laments. Leona’s goal is to be able to sport a tucked-in shirt and wear shorts again. She plans on treating herself to a shopping spree after her final weigh–in. The British Columbia Automobile Association human resources staffer’s sedentary job has contributed to her weight loss struggles. Leona has, however, joined the fitness centre at her work, making use of the stationary bike and treadmill. Tuna over salad is a lunchtime staple for Leona. In the evening, she savours gourmet, “probably unhealthy” meals prepared by her husband. Desperate after failing with a well known diet centre a few years ago, Leona is ready to adopt the Foundation for Integrated Health’s ZIP slimming and weight loss program. “Whatever I learn through this process, I’m going to stick to what I’m supposed to do,” she says.

North Vancouver’s John O’Flynn talks the active lifestyle talk to his students at Saint Pius X Elementary. And now the guilt is finally getting to him: A soccer–related ankle injury has rendered John inactive, and it’s starting to show. “I call it my baby of many months,” he laughs, gesturing towards his rounded belly. The 48–year–old’s weight is at an all–time high and has brought on blood pressure and cholesterol concerns. John, a one–time gym teacher, hopes to get healthy and lead by example again — using his involvement with Mount Seymour Little League and the North Vancouver Football Club as motivation. “It’s a bit of a competition here for me to try and improve myself,” says John. Temptation will be lurking at every corner during John’s weight loss challenge, which coincides with year–end school and sports team parties, as well as his daughter’s high school graduation. “I know this is going to be the ultimate test,” figures John. “There will be alcohol, steak and lots of goodies around.” He plans to lean on his wife Kathy and their five children for support. The Blueridge resident, who lives a stone’s throw away from the Baden Powell Trail, is committed to getting his heart rate up for 20 to 30 minutes a day by walking in the forest. “I’m not looking to win races, but to set a date with Mother Nature,” says John.

WEST VANCOUVER COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

Bonnie McLaren

Memorial fund established in memory of Bonnie J. McLaren

T

he Foundation is pleased to announce a significant donation by the McLaren family in memory of Bonnie McLaren. Bonnie grew up in West Vancouver and attended West Vancouver Secondary School before heading to the University of British Columbia. After she and her husband Andy started their family, she stayed home to raise their three children in the house that she and Andy built in North Vancouver. In her later years Bonnie was grateful for time spent with her morning walking group, her gardening club and at her cottage in Pender Harbour. She also became a member of Soroptimists International of North and West Vancouver, a local service organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, both locally

and internationally. She was the driving force behind the Soroptimists’ annual Treasure Chest of Hope gala and played an important part in the club’s success. When Bonnie passed away in June 2010, her family wanted to create a memorial to honour the loving and compassionate woman they had known as wife and mother. The McLaren family chose to set up the Bonnie J. McLaren Memorial Fund with the West Vancouver Community Foundation in recognition of Bonnie’s commitment to the Soroptimists. With the fund in place, the Soroptomists will be able to continue to do the work that was so important to Bonnie and to recognize other women, who like Bonnie, have a passion for this cause. The Foundation is proud to do its part to honour the memory of Bonnie McLaren in this special way.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR At our recent Annual General Meeting, I was very pleased to report on our 2012 activity and successes which are highlighted in this Newsletter. We have a very dedicated and hard-working Board, supported by two incredible staff members which, along with the generosity of Donors, makes all this possible. Our most heart-warming success was being able to distribute $86,000 in grants and scholarships back into the community. A total of $75,500 in grants was distributed to 31 worthy organizations serving the needs of our community, while a total of $10,500 was awarded in scholarships. Eight scholarships came from endowed Funds within the West Vancouver Community Foundation, while an additional four came from one of our flow-through Funds. We were very pleased to participate for the fifth year in the Mayors’ Golf Tournament, raising $50,000 for the Complementary Health and Wellness Clinic of the North Shore Women’s Centre. We also held our sixth annual Seniors’ Community Health Forum entitled “Maintaining Vigour, Vitality and Virility in the Senior Years”, which was moderated by Dr. Art Hister and included a blue ribbon panel of presenters.

The year 2012 also saw the establishment of the Bonnie J. McLaren Fund, mandated to improve the lives of women and girls on the North Shore, and the realization of one of our longest-standing partners and flow-through Fundholders, North Shore Rescue, of their new Command Base in North Vancouver. Finally, we continued working closely with other community partners such as Harmony Arts Festival, Shaw TV, Odlum Brown, Leith Wheeler, North Shore News, the Outlook, West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, and West Vancouver Municipal Hall to ensure that we make the finest programs and projects available to the residents of West Vancouver. Our Fund portfolio now sits at just under $5 million and realized a return last year of 9.2%. Thank you to the community of Donors and Partners for supporting us again this year as we continue to pursue our Mission of “Through philanthropy, building a better West Vancouver”. Have a great summer and watch our web-site for our activities in the Fall.

2013 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Presenting our Strategic Plan…

The West Vancouver Community Foundation held its 34th Annual General Meeting on May 22, 2013 at the West Vancouver Seniors Activity Centre. Committee reports were given and Chair Gerry Humphries reported that the total of funds now exceeds $4.8M and that $406,221 was disbursed back to the community in 2012.

The West Vancouver Community Foundation unveiled its Strategic Plan 2013-2015 at the beginning of the year. Gerry Humphries, Chair of the Foundation, says the new plan “holds the promise of great things for this community, beginning with an ambitious goal to more than double our philanthropic activities over the next three years”. Built around the Foundation’s vision to build a better West Vancouver through philanthropy, we have set four strategic priorities for this three-year period.

The Foundation’s strategy includes plans to deepen its expertise, researching community needs to enable it to seek out potential grant recipients and working closely with professional advisors to encourage legacy gifting to the Foundation. Finally, the Foundation will enhance its profile within West Vancouver by seeking community feedback and introducing a fresh marketing strategy. Long term, the Foundation plans to take a leadership role by establishing a permanent office location to serve as a hub for all West Vancouver non-profit organizations.

Black Creek Old Growth Environmental Fund One of the four pillars of the community which the Foundation seeks to support is our physical environment. The Foundation’s Environment Committee, chaired by Director Peter Ackhurst, aims to channel support to local environmental organizations. West Vancouver is fortunate to have a number of dynamic groups, including the Old Growth Conservancy Society – West Vancouver. When precious old growth trees in the Black Creek watershed were felled in 2012, community members reacted strongly and the District was quick to respond. One of the ways in which the issue was addressed was to ensure that the proceeds of the sale of the timber from the old growth trees will go to support environmental improvement projects. The Old Growth Conservancy Society turned to the Foundation to hold its Black Creek Old Growth Environmental Fund. The Foundation is pleased to be able to provide its support to this important work.

3 ‘innovative’ cell towers proposed for West Van The towers would be around 36 metres high and go in along the Upper Levels Highway MICHAELA GARSTIN

any of us have dealt with spotty cellphone service on the North Shore, particularly closer to the mountains. And reception will get worse, says Rogers, as houses are built at higher elevation and an increasing amount of data is consumed. That is unless more towers are built. The mobile service provider is proposing three new towers for West Vancouver along the Upper Levels Highway. They will be around 36 metres high so signals can reach above the district’s many tall trees. “There are thousands of households on the North Shore that don’t have reliable service,” said Marc Draper, Rogers’s manager of radio engineering. Cars were recently sent around West Van to collect “drive data” to determine where coverage needs improving. “West Vancouver is unique. It’s extremely hilly and a large growth of trees can completely obstruct service,” said Draper, adding rooftop antennae aren’t an option because they are too low to reach hard-to-get areas. Rogers hired Dialog, a Vancouver-based architect firm, to design the towers which won’t have any visible antennae. “This is the first time we know of in Canada that a design architect firm has been used to design a cellphone tower,” Rogers’s senior consultant Cindy Grauer told The Outlook. But some residents have objected to more cellphone infrastructure in West Van. Citing health and aesthetic reasons, such as obstructed views, they say “too bad” to people who want more coverage or faster download speeds. But Dialog architect Bruce Haden says the towers are

designed to look the best they can while still providing proper service. “Go on Google, and there are not a lot of examples of good looking cellphone towers,” he said, adding the ones proposed for West Van are a new innovation. “There is a strong possibility that they can be interesting. Look at what they do with lamp posts now,” he said. “It’s a new form of industrial design.” Graphics and different colours can be added to the towers, along with the possibility of lights to create a kind of public art. Following guidelines of not building more towers than necessary, these can accommodate up to three companies, including Telus which has expressed interest in the project. “We consume 100 times more data than we did five or 10 years ago,” said Draper, adding smartphones and tablets are the main culprits. “And we’re going to keep consuming more and more.” Rogers isn’t the only service provider trying to provide North Shore residents with better coverage. This year Telus invested $5.5 million in North Vancouver and $2 million in West Van partly to expand its wireless technology. Since 2009, the company has spent $28.5 million on technology and infrastructure on the North Shore. The district’s Wireless Communications Policy recommends towers shouldn’t be placed in residential neighbourhoods, with the best areas being the undeveloped Upper Lands or along the Upper Levels highway. While the District of West Vancouver doesn’t have the ultimate say on whether the towers go in because the Upper Levels Highway is under the Ministry of Transportation, Grauer said Rogers wants to work with residents to find a tower design they like. It isn’t known yet, however, whether all residents can be convinced. Public open houses take place on June 13 and 18 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at St. David’s Church, 1525 Taylor Way.

Yet CapU’s own numbers show the Interactive Design program enjoys one of the school’s highest rates of postgraduation employment, with 80 per cent of new diplomaholders working in their desired field. “We had 18 grads walk across the stage last Monday night and they’re all working already,” Calvert told The Outlook. “Yet, what we were told about our program is that we don’t belong in a university.” Still others at the meeting blamed the shortfall on a bloated university administration which has left the school more top-heavy than at any time since its redesignation from a college to a university in 2008. According to CapU computer science instructor Joseph Fall, the university currently has 355 full-time equivalent instructors — the same number as in 2009. Yet, during that same time, the school has grown from 35 administrators, or one for every 10 teachers, to 52 last year. “The size of our administration has not only grown quite significantly,” Fall told The Outlook in a phone interview this week. “But all the areas that the administration runs too — like IT, HR and finance — have all increased by about the same and our overall operating expenses have gone up by the same.”

While real annual revenues for the school are up by about eight per cent since 2009 and faculty wages have actually declined by one per cent given the rate of inflation, spending at the school has shot up 10 per cent, according to Fall. One last-minute appeal from the faculty association to save programs from the chopping block was for a four-per-cent spending cut across all school programs and services, born more heavily by those programs which could afford it, and less so by those which couldn’t. That option, however, was rejected by the school’s senate budget advisory committee at a pre-vote meeting on Monday, and denounced again by Capilano president Kris Bulcroft at Tuesday’s meeting of the governors. “It means that we would be looking at things like reductions in our contracted services like security, janitorial and those are services that we really have no control over those expenses,” the CapU president said. “The truth is, if you look at those things we actually do have access to, we guess it’s probably a 10- to 11-per-cent cut you’d have to make to academic programs and services.”

Off-leash dog complaints spark licensing campaign in West Van MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

fter complaints about off-leash dogs, the District of West Vancouver is launching a campaign to encourage more residents to license their canines.

“We estimate only about 65 per cent of the dogs in West Vancouver are licensed,” said Steve Simmonds, manager of bylaws and licensing services, in a press release. During June dog owners who don’t have licences are given amnesty. Instead of a fine they receive a written warning from bylaw officers during the Responsible Pet Ownership Campaign. Complaints about dogs being unlicensed, off-leash and in prohibited areas such as swimming areas and on the Seawall sparked the month-long campaign. Complaints also included owners who failed to pick up after their dogs. Bylaw officers will be handing out brochures, free leashes and dog waste dispensers during the campaign. “Our goal is to change behaviour and promote responsible pet ownership through education,” said Simmonds. All dogs in West Vancouver older than six months must be licensed at a cost of $25 for a dog that has been spayed or neutered and $65 for one that hasn’t. Avoiding fines is not the only reason to have pets licensed. Fees help bylaw officers reunite pets with their owners quickly and reduce the number of dogs that go to shelters. As part of the Drive Home Program, any licensed animal found by a bylaws officer will be brought back to the owner’s front door. Dogs owners who don’t have a licence or need to renew can do so online at westvancouver. ca/dogs or by calling 604-925-7152. For a list of places where dogs can roam free, see A Dog’s Guide to West Vancouver. mgarstin@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin

Plan now for 2013

While everyone is thinking about getting their 2012 income taxes wrap think about how to maximize your 2013 tax bracket. Looking at your 2 in the rearview mirror – let’s look forward. If you are retired, and particularly if you have a spouse, consider increasing the draw from your Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF). While you’re alive you’ve got two tax brackets to work with. There is great power in income splitting of RRIF income for couples age 65 and older – particularly if there is a large pool of registered capital. When there’s only one of you left, there’s no looking back.

If you are not yet retired, make the most of tax deductions to reduce taxable income. Plan to contribute to your RRSP or your spouse’s RRSP. Don’t be shy about making charitable donations; the tax credit for total donations above

$200 is generous.

This is a good time to recap some investment tips that are tax savvy. First, consider mutual funds in the Corporate Class edition where you can switch positions and not trigger any capital gains. Second, consider investments with dividend income. If you had no other income than dividends (from public corporations), you could take in $50,000 of dividends before you’d pay any income tax. Third, take advantage of your Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) for growth - oriented investments. If your TFSA is geared for long term savings, equities make sense. In non-registered accounts, only 50% of the capital gain is taxable. But in the TFSA all of that capital gain is tax free. Tax planning is part of the overall financial planning process. What you save in income tax is

West Van should leave TransLink: Mayor Smith With the money saved, Smith says buses could be free and more efficient MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

I

magine taking any bus in West Vancouver anytime for free. This would be a real possibility if the district was allowed to opt out of TransLink, says Mayor Michael Smith. With the average household paying $600 a year, or 10 per cent of their property taxes, to TransLink, he believes the money could be better spent if the munic-

ipality had control over service. “If you add in all the gas tax that we pay and the federal gas rebates that we give to TransLink, we could expand our bus service substantially and provide totally free bussing for our citizens,” Smith said. A lot of money goes to services that don’t benefit West Van directly, such as the Canada Line and the Golden Ears Bridge, he added. “The whole North Shore could make a compelling argument that we don’t get a lot out of TransLink because the resources go to the City of Vancouver, Burnaby, New West that have rapid transit lines.” But getting out of TransLink is difficult, if not impossible. West Vancouver currently runs the Blue Bus transit system, which is under contract to TransLink to serve West Van, downtown, Lions Bay and UBC.

All areas of Metro Vancouver are under TransLink’s transportation service and opting out isn’t an option, said Derek Zabel, spokesman for TransLink. But Smith said this isn’t fair to the many West Van residents who don’t benefit from services in other communities. Bus use, however, is high in West Van, particularly amount seniors and people travelling to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal, Capilano University and downtown, he added. “I certainly agree we need a region transportation system, but it might be worth… looking at how our needs on the North Shore are quite different than the needs in Surrey and Langley.” mgarstin@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin

bowen island designer finalist in international handbag competition Awards ceremony takes place in New York on June 19

Although she has a background in Fine Art and Fashion Design and over 10 years of experience, it was only three years ago that Stefani started designing belts as a hobby for a means to be creative and learn something new. Once she tired of belts, she decided to use her knowledge of pattern-making and construction – not to mention her self taught slipcover-making skills – to produce her first bag. Since that first design, Stefani’s line has flourished and is now sold at her online store (lloydandwolf.com) and in a trendy downtown Vancouver boutique. When discussing her inspirations for her line, Stefani explains, “I mostly draw upon what I need to fit into my life and style. I don’t like things that are overly fussy or difficult to access.

hen Larissa Stefani, creator/designer of Lloyd & Wolf Couture, found out that one of her handbags was one of five finalists for the 2013 Independent Handbag Designer Awards (IHDA), her immediate response was to call her friends, family and finally her PR rep to get the necessary preparations in order for the big awards ceremony in New York City on June 19. Stefani is the sole Canadian nominee in this prestigious competition. When asked how she feels to be our nation’s representative, she says she can’t help but find the experience to be rather surreal.

Bags need to be functional, easy to wear and look great. I love leather and like to let that be the main focus of my bags.” The IHDA was founded by the HBD network and over its six years of hosting the awards ceremony has become a very coveted prize in the handbag industry. Stefani’s “Abi” bag was nominated in the Overall Style and Design category. It’s a no-fuss tote with edgy details and plenty of storage. Lloyd & Wolf ’s tag line “Fiercely Individual, Limited-Run, Handcrafted Leather Goods” sums up its products and target audience pretty well. It’s certainly geared toward those who lean toward fashion with an edgier style. And the combination of quality leather and careful thought of design speaks volumes about Stefani’s talent. One of the big fans of the Abi tote is actress Morena Baccarin, star of shows like Homeland, Firefly and Serenity. The actress is expecting her first child and plans to use the tote as a baby bag — she likes that the Abi bag isn’t “too precious.” The winner of the category will not only receive the title but will have the opportunity to have his or her line carried at Bloomingdale’s and a booth at WWDMAGIC, a fashion trade show. In addition, the winner will have the chance to collaborate with the 2013 IHDA Iconoclast recipient, Rafé, as well as being featured in the September issue of Instyle Magazine. In response to questions about her future aspirations for the company, Stefani says, “I certainly have more styles to add, a lot of travel in the near future for sourcing, but in general, it is my goal to remain true to my brand philosophy which is to stay with limited runs. My family comes first. When I started this whole thing, I wanted it to be something I could have fun with, but manage to maintain with the same integrity.” But for now Stefani is putting her focus on the excitement of making her debut in the international fashion scene. To quote from her blog, “I am thrilled to have been recognized by esteemed members of my industry, and also to get the opportunity to go and have a complete blast with them in New York City. There’s nothing better than that!... Well, it’d be great if I could swing some Jimmy Fallon tickets.”

Repeat after me: La-Z-Boy makes more than recliners.” You’ll also find accessories, lamps, rugs and other pieces of furniture to complete your decor. One of the design consultants will be pleased to help you choose your new piece, from the shape to the size to the fabric and accents. “You need to be comfortable with your decision,” Miller says. “We want to make it easy for people.” For more information about the complimentary in-home design process and how it can help you furnish your condo, visit www.la-z-boy.com/vancouver, visit the store at 734 W. 14th Street, North Vancouver or call the store at 604-985-9351.

Finding the perfect piece to fit your home can be tough. It can be even tougher when your home is a condominium. A smaller space often means that the furniture you select has to be similarly downsized, and it can be harder to find what you’re looking for. However, La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery in North Vancouver is ready to take on that challenge. “It’s exciting to have a store here with all the condo development around,” says Tim Miller, Director of Marketing and Advertising for La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries Vancouver. “But it can be hard to furnish those tight spaces.” La-Z-Boy offers a complimentary in-home design service to customers looking for a bit of assistance in furnishing their place. Interior designer Delanie will come to your home and measure the space to ensure that everything fits after working with you to choose the right pieces for the room and your personal style. After the consultation in your home, she will draw up a plan for you to show what can be done. “Sofa beds are always a hit when consumers are challenged for space and need an

North Shore home to first pro-pot billboard The Sensible BC campaign for marijuana reform launched an ad campaign in West Vancouver for a province-wide cannabis referendum TODD COYNE S Ta f f R e p O RT e R

A

quarter-million commuters crossing the North Shore this week will have likely noticed the new greenery along Marine Drive near the Lions Gate Bridge. It’s not in the bushes or trees but rather, um, higher. The new ad campaign for marijuana legal reform was launched Monday by the folks at Sensible BC. Their electronic billboard ad lighting up the border between North and West Vancouver features a giant cannabis leaf on a blue background and the words “Join the Sensible BC Marijuana Referendum campaign.” It’s right now the only ad of its kind from the group promoting a fall referendum on the policing of marijuana in B.C. But depending on the response it garners, it likely won’t be the last. “If things go well, we’ll get other billboards in other cities and regions around the province,” said Sensible BC director Dana Larsen in an interview with The Outlook this week. “It’s not specific that we’re necessarily targeting West Van more than anywhere else, but it’s a high-traffic area and a lot of folks go through there on their way to other places and we wanted to get some excitement and some interest in our campaign.” While the campaign doesn’t actually begin in earnest until September, it’s of a kind that requires significant public awareness about its intentions beforehand if it’s to see any kind of success. Similar to the successful Fight HST campaign of yesteryear, Larsen and his Sensible BC colleagues will have 90 days to sign up approximately 400,000 British Columbians — 10 per cent of voters from each provincial riding — to their Sensible Policing Act petition which aims to stop police in B.C. from searching or arresting otherwise lawabiding citizens in posses-

Recyclers, planners see mechanized garbage sorting as a threat JEFF NAGEL Black PrEss

everal recycling businesses are urging Metro Vancouver to stand firm and refuse to allow a new mechanized garbage-sorting plant to open in the region. The mixed-waste material recovery facility (MRF) being built in south Vancouver by Northwest Waste Solutions is pitched as a way to process garbage after recyclables have been source-separated – waste that would otherwise be landfilled would be run through its whirring machinery to extract yet more usable materials. But critics within the industry doubt it will operate as billed. They expect Northwest would offer customers one big convenient bin to dump garbage and recyclables mixed together and leave Northwest’s $30-million MRF to sort it out. Opponents of single-stream recycling predict it will mean less material recovered at lower quality than source-separation, disrupting the existing recycling system. Approving a so-called dirty MRF that processes unsorted garbage would put existing green jobs at risk, Nicole Stefenelli of Urban Impact Recycling told Metro’s zero waste committee June 6. “A capital investment of this type would, in my view, put in peril the years of source separation and education and the infrastructure we’ve built in the region,” she said. Emterra Environmental vice-president Ed Walsh said mixed-waste “dirty” MRFs are little different from a transfer station and leave no incentive for residents and customers to separate their recyclables. “Stay the course,” urged Paul Sellew, CEO of Harvest Power Canada, which operates an organic composting plant in Richmond and a wood waste processor in New Westminster. “The markets do not accept the end product produced out of these [MRF] systems due to contamination.” He said Harvest Power has invested heavily in the region on the basis Metro will continue to increase waste diversion rates and gradually ban more material from landfills, including organics starting in 2015. Metro and City of Vancouver officials recently toured mixed-waste MRFs in California and Metro solid waste general manager Paul Henderson concluded in a staff report that such systems have low recycling rates – 10 to 15 per cent of traditional recyclables are recovered, leaving behind large volumes of garbage. He said compost from such plants is dubbed “Hollywood compost” because it glitters with finely broken glass, plastic and other contaminants. Henderson also warned a privately run MRF here would threaten existing recyclers. Northwest Waste CEO Ralph McRae disputed Henderson’s findings. He argued Metro has been stymied in its efforts to get multi-family residential recycling rates above about 16 per cent and that his MRF can recover more material, boost-

Garbage in the open face at the Vancouver Landfill in Delta. Businesses in the waste hauling or recycling industries are at odds over how the region should aim to ing the region’s overall recycling rate. “What he’s trying to do is make us the bogeyman,” McRae said. “To be painted as some robber baron who’s trying to rip off the region and do bad things is not in keeping with our reputation or our history.” Some Metro directors lean toward giving the concept a try. “Why wouldn’t we want to make every effort to recover [additional recyclables from the waste stream] even if it’s only one per cent?” asked Vancouver Coun. Andrea Reimer. “Isn’t that preferable to burning?” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan also asked if Metro’s aim is to improve recycling rates in whatever way possible or to reserve waste for either landfilling or incineration. Henderson argued the only way a privately run MRF could work is if it can send the resulting garbage stream out of region for cheaper disposal, dodging the $107 per tonne tipping fees Metro charges here. It was suggested Metro could operate its own mixed-waste MRF to sort more material from garbage, but Corrigan noted that would add more costs to the waste-handling system. The waste committee voted to have staff analyze the viability of using a MRF in a last-stage recovery effort while ensuring regular source-separated recycling continues. Also contentious is Metro’s plan to block out-of-region exports of garbage. Metro intends to require commercial waste haulers to take garbage to Metro-approved transfer stations or recyclers to stop a growing flow of apartment and business waste from being trucked to the Fraser Valley or the U.S. That outflow of waste threatens Metro’s programs because each load that goes out no longer contributes tipping fees that underpin the regional district’s waste and recycling system. Loads hauled outside the region don’t have to comply with Metro-imposed bans against the dumping of recyclables either. Haulers who oppose waste flow control call it an unreasonable business restraint that aims to trap waste in the region to feed a new Metro incinerator. Steve Bryan of the Waste Management Association of B.C. argues Metro shouldn’t “pick winning and losing technologies” in the recycling field, and should let industry take the lead.
