he tragic death of Mexican foreign exchange student Marcos Borboa Lara after a fatal fall at a popular recreation area on the weekend has left a pair of tight-knit school communities reeling. “The people that knew him are shocked,” says classmate Sam Trendell-Jensen, who just completed Grade 10 at Argyle secondary in North Vancouver. “He was an amazing guy. He was nice, fun, extremely happy — he was someone that could bring up the mood at any event. He could always bring a smile to anyone’s face pretty much.” Since arriving as an exchange student in September, Borboa, 16, had made many friends and he even joined the school’s junior varsity football team. “He will truly be missed and my thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who is affected by this,” says Trendell-Jensen. On Thursday, Trendell-Jensen and some other school friends attended a memorial service for Borboa that was held at CSLI (Canadian as a Second Language Institute), a school he attended last year and was planning to volunteer at this summer. Silvia Ferrari, now the officer manager at the language school, was a teacher last year and Borboa was one of her students. “He was very shy when he first started and slowly got more comfortable in Canada and he became the most outgoing, amazing young man,” said Ferrari, who was one of the teachers who spoke during the celebration of life.” He was just very sweet. He was so happy, he was always smiling. He was kind.” Along with studying English, Ferrari says Borboa was also learning Japanese from other students at the school and teaching others Spanish. “He had friends from so many different countries — he had friends from everywhere,” she said. At the celebration of life, a collage of photos of Borboa, flowers and his trademark cowboy hat were displayed on a table draped in the flags of Mexico and Canada. Borboa was swimming with friends on June 30 at a swimming hole atop Granite Falls when he was swept over the edge, plummeting nearly 50 feet and sustaining severe injuries, according to police. The young man was immediately pulled from the water and given CPR by some off-duty nurses who happened to be at the provincial park but he did not respond. “We are deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the tragedy at Granite Falls,” said Victoria Miles, communications manger for North Vancouver School District, in a statement. “Our thoughts and sympathies are with the young man’s family and our staff is in contact with them, as well as with local authorities and the consulate, to provide necessary support and assistance.” Miles added: “We are working with North Vancouver RCMP Victim Services to provide support to local families affected by the tragedy. As well, Argyle Secondary school counsellors and our critical incident team responded immediately to develop a plan of support for the school’s staff, students and families. This young man’s tragic death has generated an outpouring of condolences from members of the school community, and we are sharing what we receive with his family.” Staff and students at CSLI have created a YouTube photo tribute to Borboa and plan to transfer all the photos and video to a DVD to present to his family. twitter.com/justinbeddall

NSR resources stretched thin right now Many of North Shore Rescue’s volunteer members take vacation in the summertime, leaving behind a void in the roster from other emergency agencies on a daily basis, said Jones. Historically, July brings the greatest call volume for NSR. “It’s not the volume that is a problem for us, it’s summer holidays,” explains Jones. “The real issue is who is in town. You can’t regulate people’s holidays when they volunteer.” On average, out of the 40 members on the NSR roster, six will answer the call in the first hour during the summer months. That’s compared to the wintertime, when half of the members are ready to go at a moment’s notice in that same time frame. Still, at any time of the year, NSR can count on mutual aid from other search and rescue teams in the Lower Mainland to fill any void in their roster. Jones has some basic advice for hikers venturing out in the woods this summer:

orth Shore Rescue’s resources are stretched thin in the summer months, so hikers should exercise backcountry smarts. That’s the message from NSR leader Tim Jones, after another busy weekend for his team. “People need to understand there is a certain limit to [NSR] volunteerism in the summer months,” Jones told The Outlook Monday. On Sunday (July 7), four specialized NSR members were deployed to Coquitlam around 8 a.m. to pluck a male hiker from his precarious perch above a waterfall on Burke Mountain. The team used the helicopter external transportation system, a roperescue tool co-pioneered by NSR, to reach the man. While highly technical in nature — the helicopter was rigged for a 250-foot long-line — it was a textbook rescue for NSR, who were aided by Coquitlam Search and Rescue. A week prior to that call, on June 30, a NSR team was deployed to look for two lost hikers on the lower slopes of Grouse Mountain. A pair of Korean tourists in their 20s had intended to hike the Grouse Grind, but instead became disoriented and wound up on the Baden Powell Trail. A language barrier between the tourists and their rescuers complicated matters. After a Korean-speaking RCMP

SummEr hEAT - After another busy weekend for his team, NSR leader Tim Jones is reminding hikers to be properly prepared before venturing into the woods this summer. File photo member serving as translator stepped in, a NSR search manager was able to pinpoint the duo’s location more precisely. A two-man rescue team sweeping the east bank of Mosquito Creek heard a response to their calls. They

were able to follow the stranded hikers’ screams further upstream and across the creek, before locating them on a steep slope near the Heritage Tree Trail. NSR members are summoned to the backcountry or fielding phone calls

-Stay put if you are lost. -Try and get out in the open — that’s the biggest thing, says Jones. -Tell someone where you are going. - Cellphones generally work really well. But don’t phone your family and friends for two hours and then try to call us, he adds. - And don’t rely solely on your phone’s GPS [global positioning system]; have a proper map and compass. NSR has a list of 10 backcountry essentials on their website, northshorerescue.com.

ity of North Vancouver Coun. Linda Buchanan was lambasted during Monday evening’s council meeting by Coun. Rod Clark over her request to attend a child transportation safety conference in Sacramento, Cali., next month. The Safe Routes to School three-day conference is being billed as a meeting between education stakeholders and staff from all levels of government to explore convenient and fun ways for children to walk and bike safely to school. Clark said the conference’s agenda didn’t fit the scope of municipal business, and even drew parallels to Canadian Sen. Mike Duffy’s alleged spending scandal. “I look at this in the same sort of vein,” said Clark. “First of all, it’s not our issue. It’s a school board issue.” And it’s what Clark said next that drew the ire of Mayor Darrell Mussatto. “Three members of the [North Vancouver] school board serve on city council currently Coun. Rod Clark — or are former members — but it seems that only one won’t let it go,” said Clark. “Councillor Clark, that is not acceptable language,” scolded Mussatto. Clark continued with his point, saying council is “being besieged by school board types” wanting to introduce a school board agenda at the council table. He was again warned by Mussatto to watch his language. A defiant Clark did not back down. When asked what he had to apologize for, Mussatto clarified that questioning or attackCoun. Linda ing the motives of another council member is Buchanan unconstitutional, citing a municipal by-law. After Mussatto threatened to eject him from the meeting, Clark conceded and withdrew his comments. The discussion continued with Coun. Craig Keating throwing his support behind Buchanan’s conference request. After reading the Safe Routes to School information packet, Keating is convinced there is a clear relevance to municipal priorities. “When I go through that [agenda] list, your worship, what I see is a long list of things that we regularly deal with in terms of how we plan communities …,” said Keating. The city has funded a $85,000-a-year school crossing guard program for the past decade. “We do fund that [program] because we do believe crossing busy streets is a responsibility of the city,” said Mussatto. “We are taking on more density, more people are driving cars, so we have to make it safe for them.” It was then Buchanan’s turn to speak to her agenda item. “I do believe that the transportation of children to and from school falls within the mandate of the municipality,” she said. “I think that it is prudent for us to learn from others.” Buchanan concluded her comments by reminding council of their unanimous approval for a “Healthy Communities” conference in Portland, Ore., this past June. Her motion Monday carried 5-1, with Clark casting the dissenting vote. Coun. Guy Heywood was absent from the meeting. After the meeting, Buchanan, a public health nurse, told The Outlook she learned of the Safe Routes to School conference, which has a $375 registration fee, through Twitter. reporter@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/mariaspitale

Rebranding beauty A North Van-born pageant queen won the crown by walking her own path

J

essica Wilmot doesn’t fit the mold of Miss America. It’s the 21-year-old North Vancouver native’s vivacious personality that earned her a Miss Lower Mainland title recently — not how spectacular she looks in an evening gown. Growing up, the Carson Graham secondary grad never dreamed of entering a beauty pageant. “No, not at all,” says Wilmot emphatically. Her flaming red locks are emphasized by the sun streaming in through the front window of Hell Pizza on Lonsdale Avenue, where Wilmot works as an assistant manager. The dramatic eyeliner she sports is a holdover from her goth phase. “It’s part of the war paint that goes on every day,” says Wilmot. And don’t forget her tattoos, she adds. The three red roses are reminders of her mom, dad and sister — while the treble and bass clefs evoke a more poignant significance. “Musical theatre saved my life,” says Wilmot, who struggled with depression and anxiety in high school. Performing on stage in Carson Graham’s productions of Cats, Grease and Les Misérables stirred her senses, and inspired Wilmot to study theatre production at Douglas College. “I want to work in New York, eventually,” she says.

Rapidly aging seniors population needs housing options

A

s long-time residents active in the community, we are writing to comment on an important decision facing the District of North Vancouver council. At its July 15 meeting, council will consider the bylaws to enable Edgemont Senior Living (ESL) to construct and operate a seniors’ residence adjacent to Edgemont Village, providing a much-needed mix of independent supported living, assisted living and memory care. We believe the following considerations are key to council’s decision: The need for options for seniors’ housing is critical — demographic studies show that the population of seniors age 75 and over in the area is expected to grow by 35 per cent in the next 10 years. Despite this growing need there are no seniors’ residences serving the Upper Capilano, Lower Capilano, Pemberton Heights and Norgate areas. There are no publicly owned lands available and due to budget constraints, neither the federal, provincial or municipal governments are stepping forward with funding, leaving it up to the private sector to address this need. While it is a growing problem, it is not a new problem. The 1998/99 Local Area Plan recognized the need for multi-family and seniors’ housing in the Upper Capilano area, including rental options, and identified the Ridgewood/Highlands area as a strategic location because of the ready access to shopping, services and public transportation. However, at that time, potential development was not deemed viable due to distributed lot ownership. Finally, in 2011 when ESL assembled a six-lot parcel and proposed a seniors’ residential rental development, this area became a viable location to meet the Community Plan vision of providing seniors’ housing options.

This is a unique opportunity for the district. If seniors’ housing is not suitable here then where is there a more suitable site? Upper Capilano is an established and largely built-out neighborhood with no other parcels of land available, so it is unlikely that another site would ever be found. If now is not the right time for seniors’ housing close to the Village, then when is the right time? It is important to take advantage of this available opportunity now as there is no guarantee that others will materialize. Urgency is required in enabling options for our rapidly aging population to help them transition from living in their own homes. Right now, too many people are faced with the prospect of leaving the community where they’ve lived their entire lives. Given the clear need, the available opportunity and the urgency of the situation, we are confident that council will make the right decision in the public good – for our community and particularly that of our present and future senior citizens – and approve the application for Edgemont Senior Living.

SANS WHEAT - Sweet Tooth Cakery’s owner Jenny Breckon holds her popular gluten-free cupcakes. Rob Newell photo

Gluten free North Shore By Michaela Garstin Let them eat cake (and freshly baked bread): More gluten-free goodies are on the shelves in North and West Van

ith blog posts titled “Celiac: The trendy disease for rich white people” and “6 real diseases that have somehow become trendy,” it’s clear gluten intolerances aren’t taken seriously by everyone. But for people like Jenny Breckon, who owns Sweet Tooth Cakery on Old Dollarton Road, the disease is anything but pretend. She opened the quaint gluten-free bakery in 2011, six years after she was diagnosed with celiac disease. “This is our The severe gluten intolermedicine” ance runs in her family; her Jenny Breckon mom almost Sweet Tooth Cakery passed away from symptoms, her two sisters are intolerant. At the moment, her two-year-old son handles wheat, rye and barley well. “I didn’t intend to make bread. I knew it was available at other places so I didn’t think

there would be much of a demand,” says Breckon, gluten-free Nanaimo bars, classic New York cheesecake and strawberry pies displayed beside her. But it turns out the bread “flies off the shelf ” soon after she makes it fresh three times a week. Unlike a decade ago, gluten-free options today are nearly endless. Breckon makes hearty seed loaf, brown rice and flax bread, cinnamon raison slices, vegan bagels, cakes, cookies, muffins and more. “Those of us with the disease, this is our medicine,” she says, bags of Italian seasoned croutons stacked nearby. “Perhaps because it’s not actual pills people don’t take it as seriously.” “Trendy” disease? The side effects of gluten can be extremely serious for people with celiac disease, a more severe form of gluten intolerance. It’s an autoimmune disorder of the small intestine that affects all ages with symptoms including discomfort, vitamin deficiency and fatigue.


Thursday, July July 11, 11, 2013 2013 13 13 Thursday,

www.northshoreoutlook.com www.northshoreoutlook.com Although estimates vary widely, some sources believe 1 in 133 people have the disease — mostly of European heritage — while many others are moderately allergic or choose to cut out wheat for dietary purposes. Before reliable blood screening was available, doctors thought symptoms only affected only 1 in 2,000 people. Estrella Damm To keep up with this growing demand, Breckon makes around 20 Daura (Spain): butter cream, fondant and ganache 4-pack $14.95 at cakes each year for gluten-intolerEdgemont Fine ant brides, grooms and guests. “You wouldn’t be able to taste the Wines, Spirits & difference,” she says, adding finding Ales appropriate ingredients can be challenging; even sugar can have gluten-filled clumping agents. New Grist (USA): “It’s not enough to just set aside a small cake because cross con6-pack $15 at BC tamination can happen easily, like Liquor Stores if the same knife is used for both cakes.” Ingredients cost double, says Breckon, compared to using gluten, Bard’s Tale (USA): which easily makes dough soft and 6-pack $15.75 at fluffy. So people buying gluten-free food should expect to pay a bit BC Liquor Stores more. But this hasn’t stopped more options from popping up on the North Shore recently. Last year, Two Daughters Bakeshop opened off Lonsdale Avenue in the alley between East First and Esplande. Like Sweet Tooth Cakery, this bakery makes fresh-made artisan bread, cookies and muffins. Most large grocery stores in North and West Van have also embraced the demand. Save-On-Foods at Park and Tilford, for example, has dedicated an entire corner of the store solely to gluten-free goodies: rice, potato and soy pasta, chips, bread, baking and cooking ingredients. Breckon says around a quarter of her customers have celiac disease, another quarter have gluten intolerance and the last half are choosing to bypass wheat as a lifestyle choice, with varying levels of commitment. But feeling good after nixing gluten doesn’t necessarily mean you have an allergy, says Helen Yeung, a dietician at Parkgate Community Health Centre.

Wines for whenever I

’ve tried a bunch of wines recently that I wanted to share here, but I can’t tie them all together for a particular theme for the life of me! No matter. One day we’re enjoying blazing sun and grilling on the patio, the next we’re taking cover under awnings from torrential downpours. This week, a dynamic array to enjoy regardless of weather, your mood or who’s popping over. Enjoy!

Masi 2012 Rosa dei Masi | Veneto, Italy | $22-24 | Private Wine Stores

After reading that this rosé was made from 100% ‘Refosco,’ I had to dust off some old textbooks to kurtis@kurtiskolt.com remind myself that the grape is a dark-skinned variety native to Northern Italy, yielding a power and depth; full of wildberry and dark, plummy flavours. This one sure lends that intensity, and even more so due to their use of the ‘appassimento method’, where the grapes are partially dried out in the sun on straw mats for extra concentration. Cool, geeky, but totally approachable with a nice, peppery finish.

Kurtis Kolt

Laughing Stock Vineyards 2011 Syrah | Okanagan Valley, BC | $36+ | Winery Direct/ Private Stores

David and Cynthia Enns’ Naramata winery has churned out another winner! Bridging Old World meaty, spicy, funky Syrah with the New World flair of a fruit-forward, oh-so-purple Shiraz, each swirl and sip peels back another layer. There’s a splash of Viognier in here as well, the classic Côte Rotiestyle, which unfurls an extra fruity and floral component to boot! The tannins are soft and integrated, while the finish goes on, and on and on… Navarro Lopez 2010 Pergolas Old Vines Tempranillo Crianza | Valdepeñas, Spain | $11.98 | BC Liquor Stores

I’m not a fan of hyperbole, but I’m gonna say it; this is possibly the best value on liquor store shelves today! I don’t even know where to start here, so I’ll just offer a little laundry list of blackberry, blueberry, fig, forest floor, cloves, leather, minerals, perfectly-balanced oak and so on. Excellent ‘stain-your-teeth’ fare. Altos de Rioja 2011 Rioja Blanco | Rioja, Spain | $20-ish | Private Wine Stores

Just as pretty as the flowers on the label. A merry tag-team of Malvasia and Viura explodes with generosity; white flowers, peaches, lemon and lime. Total crowdpleaser. Saumur Champigny 2010 Cuvee Thierry Germain | Loire Valley, France | $19.99 | BC Liquor Stores

Chill this lively red down for ten or 15 minutes before diving into its limestone-driven, Cabernet Franc goodness! There’s a perfectly typical regional style here, marrying cherries, leather, basil and sun. If you think Cabernet Franc has to be heavy, stemmy and green – this bottle will make you a convert, I promise.

Artazuri 2012 Garnacha Rosado | Navarra, Spain | $19-ish | Private Wine Stores

Another pink wine for the summer! Imagine sucking on a cherry Jolly Rancher immediately after chewing spearmint gum. Big, bold flavours still manage to finish quite dry, in fact there’s almost a little bit of heat on the end. Feel free to serve up a big steak or something else your inner carnivore has a hankering for; it’ll do just fine. As always, if you’re having trouble tracking something down, find me via KurtisKolt.com or Tweet me @KurtisKolt

Hop on over to North Van’s Bridge Brewing Mmmm….fresh local beer. Last July North Van native Jason Stratton launched Bridge Brewing, B.C.’s first nano brewery, in a business park located just off the Dollarton Highway. Since then, North Shore beer lovers — and even swillers from the other side of the bridge — have been making the pilgrimage to the small-scale brewhouse that’s under the direction of expert brewer Patrick Dore. Be sure to try the North Shore Pale Ale or one of their seasonal beers. The brewery, located at 115-2433 Dollarton Hwy, is now open seven days a week, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., for the summer season.

Celebrating two of B.C.’s best: salmon and berries What are the best wines to go with local berries and sockeye salmon? Find out at the Salmon & Berry Festival this Saturday, July 13 at Fresh St. Market in Ambleside. Ten thousand pounds of Ocean Wise wild sockeye salmon are available to purchase along with “truckloads” of local strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries from local farmers including Abbotsford’s Berry Haven Farm, Delta’s Emma Lea Farms and Ed McKim’s farms. From noon to 3 p.m. Fresh St. Market is working with 16th Street Liquor Store to provide wine pairing tastings on site, including matches for berries and sockeye salmon. Wild sockeye salmon burgers and drinks are available for $5.

Be kind to your

cuddly carnivore!

Types of sake Wine is naturally fermented by adding yeast to pressed grapes. sake is not fermented by adding yeast to rice but by using koji, which converts the starch in rice to sugar. The rice begins fermenting once the yeast is added to this sugar. — The Japan sake Brewers Association Ginjoshu: Uses white rice which has been milled so that 60 per cent or less of the grain remains. Also contains rice koji and water; may contain brewing alcohol. Fruity, somewhat floral bouquet. If rice is polished down to 50 per cent, it’s Dai-ginjoshu. Junaishu: Made only from white rice, rice koji and water. Mellow bouquet; rich, smooth flavour. Honjozoshu: Made using white rice which has been milled so that 70 per cent or less of the grain remains, along with rice koji, brewing alcohol and water. known for its mild, unobtrusive bouqet and crisp flavour.

Food Facts: “Cats are obligate carnivores. When their food is made with a lot of grain it is hard for their systems to digest. They also get most of their much-needed water intake from their food (rather than from drinking) so a dry diet, like kibble, is hard on their organs. Their ideal food is moist and meat-based. If you must feed kibble, it helps to mix it with wet canned food and even a bit of water.”

Futsushu: All other types of sake fall under this category.

Unexpected popularity Margaret Dron was shocked when 20,000 people showed up at her Gluten Fee Expo last A year without tickets. The one-day event with dozens of vendors sold out quickly, leaving many disappointed customers trying their luck at the gates. “It all started when I was volunteering at the food bank. I asked ‘what if they’re celiac?’” says Dron. It turns out many people don’t donate this sort of food so she decided to host a group of vendors at the Croatian Cultural Centre with admission by gluten-free donation. It turned out to be a huge success so last year the event was moved to the much larger Vancouver Convention Centre and Dron began charging for admission to help cover SAVE 60% costs. But this didn’t stop thousands of people 99 from showing up — far too many than the venue would allow.

“When you cut out baked goods and you’re replacing it with fruits and vegetables — healthier choices — the symptoms do improve, and in fact it can be [due to] an improvement of your diet overall,” she explains. So, for instance, if you replace cookies and pasta with vegetables and fruit you could feel healthier whether or not you are actually allergic to wheat. And axing gluten isn’t necessarily a problem as long as you are getting the proper nutrition, says Yeung, adding it’s good to consult a doctor before making any diet restrictions.

WVPD warns cyclists to obey rules of the road MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E P o Rt E R

est Vancouver police are warning cyclists to follow traffic rules after receiving a rising number of complaints. “The British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act is clear. A person operating a cycle or bicycle on a road or highway has the same rights and duties as a driver of a vehicle and is subject to a provincial violation ticket,” the WVPD said in a press release. This means cyclists must act like drivers, including stopping at traffic lights and signaling to change lanes. “Unfortunately rising complaints to West Vancouver Police indicate many members of the cycling community

disregard the very traffic rules that are designed to protect them,” the release continued. WVPD expect the number of bikes on the road to climb with warm weather during the summer months. These are Motor Vehicle Act offences by cyclists that commonly draw complaints with associated fines: n n n n n

CAPturE MOrNING LIGht Horseshoe Bay artist Lil Chrzan is showing her paintings at the Ferry Building Gallery in West Vancouver until July 14.

at sunrise. Chrzan’s current exhibit, In the Presence of Light, is showing at the Ferry Building Gallery (1414 Argyle Ave.) in West Vancouver until July 14. Light plays a powerful role in her paintings by creating “a sense of wonder and awe, a sense of the transcended.” “People who see my paintings tell me they feel like they’ve been there before. If I tell them where it is and they’ve never been, they still feel like they’ve visited.” This sort of emotional deja vu is common while viewing the light-filled paintings, she says. Never trying to copy nature, the West Van artist uses “creative distillation,” a process of extracting the most essential elements. As British Columbians, she explains, our regional identify is closely tied to the landscape. Her paintings are meant to add to this discourse. “Paintings about nature and wilderness have a long tradition in our cultural history and have taken on a new urgency and resonance of late,” she says. Stop by Chrzan’s new exhibit to see how her luminous landscapes speak to you.

gas. A Metro Vancouver staff report recommends the regional district halt its study of a proposal from the Langley Speedway Historical Society and inform the group that racing won’t be allowed again in the park. The issue is slated to go to a vote of Metro’s environment and parks committee Thursday morning, where several delegations opposed to a revived racetrack in the park are to speak. The society has proposed racing at a restored speedway on a maximum of 14 days a year, with the facility acting as a multi-purpose venue for other events as well – potentially acting as a money maker for the Metro parks department. Metro staff had previously opposed the concept but the politicians who sit on the committee voted 7-6 in May to at least study it further. The report says Campbell Valley Regional Park contains sensitive ecosystems that are home to various threatened species. “Species at risk such as red-legged frog, western toad, Pacific water shrew, great blue heron and American bittern are likely to inhabit the immediate area around the track,” it says. The report cautions that forging forward would consume more staff time at a cost of other priorities and ring up possibly significant consulting costs to carry out an extensive feasibility assessment and public consultation. If directed to proceed, it says, the society would be approached to cover the “several hundred thousand dollars” of expected costs. Opening a speedway in the park would trigger external reviews by the Township of Langley and Agricultural Land Commission, and possibly provincial and federal environmental reviews, the report said. The old stock car racing oval closed in 1984. Equestrians and other neighbours and park users strongly oppose reviving the speedway, citing noise and other concerns. twitter.com/nsoutlook

on’t go to TranZ4mation Hair Studio & Spa expecting a cookie-cutter hairstyle — or salon experience, for that matter. There are no airbrushed images on the walls, nor is there a uniform display of hair products inside this truly unique, Lower Lonsdale hair studio. Instead, an oversized Bob Marley poster, along with a cluster of cancer survivors’ makeover photos, serves as inspiration. Marley’s “One Love” mantra rings true in this space shared by hair stylists from the Philippines, Iran, Jamaica, St. Lucia and Dominica. Salon owner Sandra Samuels, a Jamaican transplant who moved to Canada two decades ago, wove a multicultural fabric for her business. “It’s always our intention to bring in [stylists from] different cultures,” says Samuels.

unlikely we’ll ever have one, but I think we should have a notification system in case something goes wrong.” Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said the Quebec disaster is a “wakeup call” on rail safety and for the federal government to ensure there’s adequate regulation and enforcement. But she noted dangerous chemicals like propane and chlorine may be a greater threat when carried in heavy trucks on the roads with other traffic. “You have to look at the risks,” she said of hauling by rail. “It’s either that or put it on a truck.” Jackson recently came back from a fact-finding trip to Norway on that country’s approach to moving oil. While there are no plans yet in southern B.C. for an oil-on-rail export terminal, Jackson said she wants to be “well-versed” on that and related port issues. “We are a major port here in Deltaport, and from everything I can see, it is going to continue to grow.”

Poll finds many in B.C. addicted to smartphones

64 per cent own one and use it an average 1.7 hours a day JEFF NAGEL BlaCk PrEss

I

f you own a smartphone and find it hard to put the device down, you’re not alone. A new poll by Insights West found 64 per cent of B.C. adults own one, they use it an average of 1.7 hours a day and have an average of 27 apps installed on it. The survey found 18 per cent of B.C. smartphone owners consider themselves strongly addicted to the device – most of those say it’s manageable – and an additional 43 per cent call it “very important” to their lives. Sixty-two per cent of smartphone owners check it at least hourly and a compulsive six per cent check it more often than every 10 minutes. Self-described addicts spend an average 2.5 hours a day actively using their phones, the poll found. Insights West president Steve Mossop said the heavy usage shows how profoundly the devices have transformed daily life and quickly become pervasive. “Look at kids and how glued they are to their devices and some of us adults as well,” Mossop said. “It has implications all around, from driving while you’re texting, to social relationships, to impacts on other things you do with your time, like exercise, TV watching and newspaper readership.” According to the poll, more than three-quarters of smartphone owners said that if they left home for the day without their device they’d return home to retrieve it. Among young adults age 18-34, the smartphone ownership rate soars to 86 per cent. Asked what sacrifices they’d make to avoid giving up their phone for three days, 70 per cent of young adults would rather give up Facebook, 25 per cent would give up computer internet access and 25 per cent said they’d rather be stood up for a date. Just 18 per cent of younger users would give up their device ahead of those alternatives, compared to 26 per cent of users aged 35-54 and 57 per cent of those 55 and up. Checking social media is a common use. A majority of users say they use their smartphone as their main way to use Twitter, more than a computer or a tablet, while a computer was still the preferred way to use Facebook. Actually making phone calls remained the top smartphone use, just ahead of texting. But email, searching for information, taking or sharing photos, checking the weather, researching products or services and using map apps to get directions were also among the most common uses. Smartphone ownership in B.C. now spans nearly two thirds• of Live Theatre & the population and has surpassed PVRs (52 per cent own one) and Concerts MP3 players (55 per cent), while rapidly closing in on landline telephones (71 per cent.) • Vintage & Classic And it’s still climbing.
