West Van’s coach house decision delayed MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f R E p o Rt E R

J

ust one more month until the fate of coach houses in West Vancouver is finally determined. Council was supposed to come to a decision at a council meeting in July but the vote was postponed until sometime in September. District staff said the delay was due to important questions posed by council members recently. But with only six out of seven members present at that meeting, a decision could have resulted in a tie vote, meaning coach houses would be nixed from West Van. Although the exact date isn’t set for September, all six councillors and the mayor plan to be at the controversial meeting that could result in staff writing a

neighbourhoods, limiting the size and only allowing them as rental units — not strata-titled dwellings that can be sold separately. In addition, adding extra bulk to lots was a main concern of many West Vancouver residents spoke at council meetings this year. Echoing their unease, district staff say “adding density would exacerbate this situation” and recommend the permitted floor area allowed on a lot not increase when a coach house is built. Staff also recommends that coach houses be allowed anywhere in West Van, not only in certain neighbourhoods.

draft bylaw to ultimately allow homeowners to build the small backyard houses. But before the bylaws are set in stone, a public input phase would be held. “Hypothetically, if council were to agree with the recommendations and move forward then staff would proceed with preparation of a draft bylaw which would come back to council later in the year,” said district spokesperson Donna Powers, adding the process could be complete by the end of this year. But this timeline could easily change, said Powers, because council could have more questions for staff or tell them to make adjustments to their recommendations. In previous discussions about coach houses, council members have brought up segregating them to certain

Net benefits? Marine Drive tennis courts could be part of Grosvenor’s community amenity contributions MICHAELA GARSTIN S tA f f W r I t E r

P

ublic tennis courts on Marine Drive in Ambleside? Grosvenor, the developer of two proposed buildings on the 1300-block, is hoping this idea will swing with West Vancouver residents. If Grosvenor’s pair of six and seven-storey buildings are approved for Ambleside, the development company will likely give West Vancouver around $8 million in community amenity contributions. Approximately 80 per cent of the contribution would be in cash and the rest in-kind, which could include a tennis court on Marine Drive and 13th Street on top of a parkade, $750,000 worth of public art and community space in one building. Community amenity contributions are tied to the “lift” in land value upon rezoning. Seventy-five per cent of the “land lift” must be returned to the District in the form of community amenity contributions (CACs), which are only applicable to privately-owned land on the block. Municipal-owned land was conditionally sold taking into account the increase of land value, according to the district. Grosvenor’s original idea was to build a 112-stall underground parking garage with the tennis courts on top for $5.6 million. But district staff want a “more modest” 74-stall garage that’s partially above ground with a smaller pricetag of $2.6 million. The lost parking spaces would be made part of additional contributions. “I think that we missed an opportunity when Rutledge Field (on the 1200-block of Marine Drive) went in to be able to put parking under that,” said Coun. Trish Panz, adding she supports stalls under the tennis courts. “We would hope that the tennis courts would be even better if they were above the parking space.” The development company also prosed a 1,200-square-foot community space in the east building for $800,000, to be possibly used as an art gallery or meeting room. “I’m not that attracted by the community space unless there’s a really defined need, rather than just filling something for the case of filling it,” said Coun. Craig Cameron, indicating the CACs may be better used elsewhere. As for public art, staff recommended the $750,000 be spent on other projects. If council wanted to add artwork in the future, they could use community amenity money from Grosvenor. mgarstin@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin

large contingent of stakeholders in Lynn Valley’s future have had their say on the Lynn Valley Town Centre Implementation Plan and a move towards high-density neighbourhoods. More than 1,200 people attended four open houses hosted by the District of North Vancouver in June, while other residents participated online. All told, the district received approximately 1,400 feedback submissions during the public consultation process. The Lynn Valley Town Centre Implementation Plan is a 20-year vision for the heart of the community. The focus of the ongoing consultation is to gather residents’ input on building form, height, character and amenities included in the plan. “I assure you that council is listening closely to the community and values the very high level of engagement in planning for Lynn Valley [Town] Centre,” said DNV Mayor Richard Walton during a July 29 council meeting. “We will work and consult further with the community to

develop a 20-year plan that meets the needs of current residents and considers future generations in Lynn Valley, while protecting the natural environment, the unique mountain village character and surrounding residential area.” Lynn Valley resident Hazen Colbert delivered his feedback in person at the July 29 meeting, telling council to not consider development applications for buildings taller than four storeys. “If such an application arrives, the community consultation process will have been a waste of time and our foundation cracked,” said Colbert. A 22-storey tower is included in the current proposals for Lynn Valley Town Centre. District staff, who are currently working with engagement consultants to assess the feedback, will provide council with a consultation report in September that will include direction for implementation planning. A implementation plan status update report is now available online at identity.dnv.org. mspitale@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/MariaSpitale

Taking an unplanned break from technology Justin Beddall editor@northshoreoutlook.com

O

ur friend’s boat-accessonly cabin, just a 40-minute boat ride from Lions Bay, is remote but not really all that rustic. There’s a propane-fuelled fridge to chill the chardonnay, hot showers and toilets that flush. There’s tons to do (hiking, kayaking, swimming or wildlife watching) or not do (reading, dominos) there. When you’re lounging on the Adirondack chairs on the large sun-soaked deck watching the eagles or admiring some of the small islands that dot Howe Sound you really do feel like you’re away from it all. And you really are. As I discovered, there’s no cell reception or internet connection. I was told that if you walked to the end of the long dock you could sometimes pick up a signal. Not long after arriving I took a stroll down to the dock, my smartphone in my pocket. No signal bars. That meant no Twitter feed, no email (personal or work) and no texting. I was suddenly incommunicado, something I’ll admit made me a little fidgety at first. I’m probably not alone. A survey by Insights West and iamoto (a mobile agency) in June discovered that almost two-thirds of B.C. adults own a smartphone and they spend near-

daTa diSCONNECT - A short break from technology can help recharge your own batteries. ly two hours a day using their phone on average. For younger adults, age 18-34, that number skyrockets to 86 per cent. Of the top 10 uses for the device, talking, texting and sending/reading email, searching for information and taking pictures, ranked the highest. Sixty-two per cent of respondents checked their smartphone at least every hour and 18 per cent considered themselves “addicted” to their device. In fact, 76 per cent admitted they’d return home if they discovered that they’d left their phone at home. Smartphones and tablets have permeated our culture and

made it easier for us to communicate, find directions, get the weather and locate the nearest sushi restaurant or bank machine. But this constant connectivity has also made us more distracted and overwhelmed by data. It’s hard to recharge your own batteries if you’re always checking your work emails on the weekend or during vacation. It’s hard to focus on your child’s little league game if you’re busy tapping out a text or updating your Facebook status. And as we become more deeply connected 24/7 it seems that some people are searching for ways to become at least tempo-

rarily disconnected. To cater to this, many luxury resorts in the U.S. and overseas are advertising techno-free getaways for the weary traveller. Don’t have the time or money — a technology-free vacation? Try turning off your phone and other gadgets for one day on the weekend to start. Want to involve the entire family? Take the Tech Timeout pledge at techtimeout.com and reconnect with your family daily for at least one hour without any electronic devices turned on. While I found being briefly unplugged refreshing, most of the survey respondents in the Insights West poll would probably rather not take a break from technology. Asked whether they’d hypothetically rather give up their smartphone for three days or choose from a list of other “small sacrifices” only 30 per cent chose to give up the phone. A majority would prefer to give up Facebook for three days and 17 per cent of respondents said they would rather get stood up on a date. At least then they could check their email, call a friend or browse the internet while they wait to meet the real Mr. or Mrs. Right.

Re: NDP soul search going nowhere (B.C. Views, Northshoreoutlook.com) A significant aspect of NDP post-election soul searching, following its catastrophic defeat by the forces of free enterprise, will no doubt have to be coming to terms with the need to move the party further to the centre, away from its ideological far left-wing base. While the federal NDP appears to have decided to delete references to “socialism” from its guiding party preamble to make it more palatable politically and competitive electorally, merely removing socialism as a founding principle, without jettisoning its politically outdated doctrine, will not con-

Socialism isn’t just a word vince Canadians that the NDP is anything but a socialist party. Shakespeare perhaps said it best in Romeo and Juliet: “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Confronted with the political reality of the concept of socialism proving itself to be an abysmal failure throughout the world, being replaced by more free enterprise, less government and less social engineering, the question naturally arises as to whether B.C.’s NDP party will be able to “jump over its own ideological shadow” and abandon its traditional stand on the principles of democratic socialism, as defined in the B.C. provincial NDP constitutional preamble: “The New Democratic Party believes that

social, economic and political progress in Canada can only be assured by the application of democratic socialist principles to government and the administration of public affairs ... including, where necessary, the extension of the principle of social ownership.” Stripped of its defining political raison d’être, however, NDP soul searching to remain a legitimate electoral contender in the province would make it a journey of heading somewhere into the future without the benefit of a road map and without a clear sense of its destination ... always carrying the baggage of its political past.

And while the action on the courts is always top notch, so are the people that help put it all together. Sitting in the sun and taking in a game couldn’t be better in this picturesque environment and opening night proved to be all that and more. The welcome reception, hosted by Floyd R.

Rising above Project ESCAPe sends First Nations youth to an outdoor adventure camp in Indian Arm, where they explore new heights while developing life skills

BY MaRia SPiTaLE-LEiSK

M

inutes away by boat from Deep Cove, but miles away from city life, there is a sanctuary where kids climb trees and dip their toes in the glacial ocean inlet. Where seals splash about, their sleek skin glistening in the midday sun – and kayakers are seen gliding along the placid water near the shoreline. Halfway up Indian Arm, a long and narrow body of water surrounded by cascading mountains, the shrieking of 100-plus kids at play carries across Camp Jubilee. Moored at the dock out front is an RCMP boat. But there’s no laying down the law today. This is summer camp, where the only rule is to have fun. That is the mandate of Project ESCAPe, a program that affords underprivileged aboriginal youth ages 7 to 16 the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature for a week – and spread their wings. **** “Atta girl, Sarah, you can do it,” encourages Hitam Treadwell, a muscular man who is wearing neon sunglasses as reflective as his broad smile. “Why is the ladder so shaky?” Sarah shouts down to him. The young girl is steadily inching her way up a statuesque 70-foot Douglas fir tree. A platform she needs to reach for the high ropes circuit is in plain view, just a couple more feet ahead of her. This is Sarah’s second attempt to climb this “mountain.” A few moments later, when trepidation gets the best of her, there are tears. She retreats to the safety of solid ground. “If that is the highest you can go, then that’s a victory,” Treadwell tells her. “You got back up there and climbed farther than you did before. Soon, you will be running up there like everyone else.” Treadwell has been where Sarah was – not sitting

HaPPY CaMPERS - (Clockwise from left) The kids lead the way during a canoeing adventure down Indian Arm. Squamish Nation social worker Hitam Treadwell always makes time to talk to youth. WVPD Const. Jeff Palmer showed up at Camp Jubilee, in part to catch up with the young friends he made during his time with the Integrated First Nations Unit. After a quick safety lesson, the kids are ready to get in the water. Maria Spitale-Leisk photos scared in a tree, but rather afraid to take that figurative next step forward with his life, stymied by past demons. Treadwell says he did his fair share of defending himself while growing up in “The Condos” on the Squamish Nation reserve. “Boys will be boys. And I look different from the other [First Nation] kids,” says a candid Treadwell, whose heritage is a fusion of First Nations and African American. He’s embraced his unique makeup, finding similarities between the two cultures – namely big family gatherings. “I believe food brings people together,” he says. Still, Treadwell trudged along through life struggling for 12 years to beat his alcohol addiction. Only a few years ago, when he spent time in a rehabilitation facility, did he realize how “sick” he truly was. In the end, it was his five children that inspired him to get clean. “I wasn’t setting the bar very high,” says Treadwell. “The message I was sending was: It’s OK to have a dad that is a drunk and disappears.” Today, Treadwell is five years sober and looking to make better memories with his family. “I’m damn sure going to try,” he affirms. Two of Treadwell’s kids join him this week at Camp Jubilee, as part of Project ESCAPe. He’s also here to support the other 123 children, through his role as a Squamish Nation social worker with the Ayas Men Men Child & Family Services department. His life experience lends empathy to conversations he has with troubled youth. “I connect with these kids because I was just like them. I’ve been there,” says Treadwell. Validating his work are the breakthroughs that happen. Treadwell worked with a seven-year-old boy whose

natural instinct was to fight back when picked on. “He would grab the closest thing to him and start throwing,” says Treadwell. Now, he can verbalize his emotions. To see a change in a kid that young is huge.” A lot of these kids are forced to grow up faster, Treadwell poignantly points out. “They have seen a lot of stuff that kids seven or eight years old shouldn’t have to see,” he says. **** Close to 50 per cent of status First Nations children in B.C. live in poverty, according to a report released by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives in June. The report also reveals 32 per cent of low-income First Nations children in B.C. live in houses in need of significant repairs. In general, B.C. has perennially had one of the highest child poverty rates in the country for the past decade, Statistic Canada numbers show. West Vancouver Police Department Const. Jeff Palmer can put a face to the statistics. He’s purposely embedded himself in the local First Nations communities. In 2010, Palmer was posted to the Integrated First Nations Unit (IFNU) – a joint WVPD and RCMP initiative designed to provide culturally sensitive policing services to the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Palmer felt right at home in his new role, having already spent a considerable amount of time with residents of the Capilano reserve. “There are people that you meet that really are inspiring,” says Palmer. A misconception, he figures, is that First Nations people don’t strive for the same goal as non-aboriginal families: to create a safe and happy community to bring their kids up in. On this balmy July day, Palmer, clad in summer-


www.northshoreoutlook.com www.northshoreoutlook.com time civvies, has a youthful spring in his step as he hikes through the forest to the different activity stations at the camp. He’s here on his own time, catching up with some of the kids he met during his IFNU days. Now a retired member of the integrated unit, Palmer still tries to stay involved. “Some of the kids recognize you from when you had to go to their house as a police officer,” he says. Palmer is also quick to point out it’s not one across-the-board issue that brings these kids to Camp Jubilee. Some might be in foster care or living in a family structure where there are substance abuse issues. “Others have perfectly nice parents where summer camp isn’t in the budget,” explains Palmer. Indian Arm offers a welcome change of scenery, not only for the kids, but also for the veteran police officer. “To see them having a great day at camp is very refreshing and very fulfilling,” says Palmer. . **** Koby, 11, cranes his neck and surveys the craggy rock face high above that he just conquered. Still wrapped in his climbing harness, he runs around handing out high fives to his camp counsellors. Breathlessly, he explains why he enjoys rock climbing. “It’s fun. Feels like home. Because when I get mad or something I just start climbing, because it makes me feel better,” says Koby. As noon approaches, Koby and the rest of the kids scamper towards the mess hall. Before the grub is served, there is some housekeeping to take care of. It seems one of the counsellors is about to learn her fate for walking barefoot through the dining hall, a faux pas at Camp Jubilee. To the chorus of kids chanting and pounding their fists on the long wooden tables, the “Wheel of Doom” is unveiled. They squeal when the arrow lands on egg roulette. The female counsellor reaches into a bowl of half hard-boiled and raw eggs before handing one over to a fellow staffer to crack over her head. The odds were not in her favour, but she laughed as the runny egg dripped down her face. IFNU Const. Joey Starr takes in the excitement from the dining hall deck. This is the fun part of the year-long planning involved in putting on Project ESCAPe. Starr conceived the project in 2009 when he joined the North Vancouver RCMP and the newly formed IFNU. He took inspiration from a Mission RCMP inspector who developed a camp for underprivileged children. In its inaugural year, 36 First Nations youth made the trek to Camp Jubilee to take part in Project ESCAPe. In a few short years Starr has grown the program significantly — so much so that he needs more space. He points up the hill where a new yurt village is being constructed. Next year there’s the potential for 35 more kids to make the trip. Camp Jubilee welcomed 125 children from the Squamish, Tsleil Waututh, Musqueam, Kwikwetlem and Sumas First Nations, during the last week of July this year. Each First Nations community selects which kids to send to camp, and partially funds the trip themselves. Other organizations have also stepped up to the plate to cover the annual $70,000 cost of the camp — including the RCMP Foundation, Rotary International and the Dreamcatcher Charitable Foundation. “The kids go back home and tell their friends, that’s how it keeps growing,” says Starr. Starr works tirelessly throughout the year to engage aboriginal youth, from organizing canoe trips to pairing teens with First Nations carvers. “I want kids to be able to reach out to me no matter what,” he says. “It’s about building that trust so they turn to a police officer for help.” Starr himself wasn’t always on the straight and narrow growing up. “My upbringing went sort of both ways – some parts weren’t the best and some were good,” he says. “The interaction with police wasn’t the best. They were there to patrol, arrest and charge – that was my perception [of police] growing up.” The tide turned when a police officer stationed in Starr’s hometown of Hazelton, B.C., became the coach of the Gitxsan First Nation hockey team. “That’s when we got to know him and not the uniform,” recalls Starr. He became inspired to join the auxiliary constable program in Hazelton, before later applying to the RCMP. It’s Starr’s hope that programs like Project ESCAPe will help set younger aboriginal generations on the right path. Palmer agrees. He believes the camp will help these kids overcome any feelings of isolation. “Anything you can do to emphasize a sense of belonging is certainly worth trying,” says Palmer.

ay hello to Viola the Mouse, Marco the Hedgehog and Charlemagne the Toad. They’re dressed in their best — top hats, frilly dresses and satin shoes. For Diane Jorden, their creator, each stuffed animal has its own personality and, of course, a unique name. Inspired by children’s stories like Wind in the Willows, Beatrix Potter and Curious George, she handmakes each “creature” from scratch using needle and thread. Even the eyes, noses, mouths and whiskers are all hand beaded, giving each doll a distinct expression. Lovingly holding Charlemagne the Toad — named after the French Prince — Jorden explains how her company, Toad’s World, started in 1978 after she was inspired by the “incorrigible rogue of a creature, Toad of Toad Hall.” Toad instantly charmed her and along came a long cast of other animal characters, many lined up for sale

this weekend at Ambleside’s annual Harmony Arts Festival. “It’s like picking a favourite child, I just couldn’t,” Jorden says, fixing Viola the Mouse’s pink tutu. She did hint, however, that Toad, with his big green smile, bulging eyes and red velvet vest, brings back many of the fondest memories. As she walks around her booth at the festival, carefully rearranging the intricate clothes and propping up slouching dolls, it’s clear she deeply cares about each animals she creates. Jorden now sells her dolls internationally to both collectors and people looking for creative gifts. She sold 110 to a man in England who was hosting a fundraisers for St. John’s Ambulance. “I focus on animal characters because no one is really doing that,” she says, mentioning she’s been a bit hesitant in the past when asked to create human faces. “These animals, they really allow people to connect with their childhood.” Meet the whole cast at toadsworld.net.

» TASTING NOTES

A toast

to Peter Lehmann The wine world lost a global icon at the end of June this year; Australian kurtis@kurtiskolt.com Peter Lehmann passed away after kidney surgery at the age of 82. He was constantly referred to as the “Baron of the Barossa;”a nod to him being a pioneer of the region outside of Adelaide in South Australia. It was the place where he was born and it was the place where he’d passed, making site-specific wines there for 66 years in between. The pivotal moment in his career came in the 1970s when there had been a glut of wine grapes in the Barossa Valley, to the point that the government gave financial incentive to those willing to pull their vines. This really gutted Lehmann, who rightly saw the potential for the Valley, knowing its growing potential for wines that offered a sense of place. While still chief winemaker at Saltram Wines, he’d started his own winery (then dubbed Masterson Barossa Vineyards) so he could purchase grapes, providing growers another option. He really was a saviour of sorts, as the Barossa has some of the oldest continuously producing vineyards in the world with several massive, gnarled vines dating back to the mid-1800s. With its close proximity to the Southern Ocean, the area’s diurnal temperature range helps grapes retain good acidity while the sun does its thing, getting them nice and ripe. The wines he’d crafted and the wines Peter Lehmann Wines produce to this day, offer a true reflection of their vineyards with minimal intervention in the winery, along with honest varietal character. Whether it’s a Shiraz offering peppery purple fruit or a Riesling that glistens with citrusy minerality, they’re always well-made and true. There may be some who balk at Australian wines in that $13-15 price range, assuming they’re just going to be sweet and soulless fruit-bombs akin to many of the “critter wines” that dominated the market a few years back. Take my word that this assumption would be mistaken, and you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not giving these wines a second glance – particularly because their price points offer excellent value. Snag one (or both) of these bottles and raise a glass to Peter Lehmann, an icon who helped put a fantastic region on the map.

Perfect Pairings: Kurtis Kolt teams up with CityMarket Starting this week Outlook wine columnist Kurtis Kolt will be hunting the aisles of Loblaw’s new CityMarket in North Van in search of the perfect pairings to go along with his weekly wine picks. Now, let’s get pairing: Peter Lehmann 2011 Weighbridge Chardonnay $12.99 | BC Liquor Stores

Green apple and melon aromas float out of the glass while the palate has some really cool intricacies: starfruit, green grape and Asian pear. Medium-bodied with good acidity through the perfumed, lemony finish; there’s enough weight and viscosity for the wine to ably handle a variety of full-flavoured dishes, but I’m thinking roast chicken, creamy pastas or perhaps a garlicky Caesar salad. Peter Lehmann 2011 Weighbridge Shiraz $14.99 | BC Liquor Stores

As the sun disappears behind the mountains and temperatures cool a little, swaddle yourself in this Shiraz chock-full of dark berry fruit, fresh-carved roast beef, fruity tobacco and some lovely, soft and peppery tannins. Big red meats or stews would do just fine. As always, if you’re having trouble tracking something down, find me via KurtisKolt.com or Tweet me @KurtisKolt

Let’s face it. We can get all high and mighty when talking about food and wine pairings, always striving to reach new culinary heights. When it comes right down to it though, wine is meant to be enjoyed any day of the week and with a wide range of foods, especially when they’re at price-points that offer such great value, like this week’s selections.

Feeling less ambitious and maybe just a little snacky? Up the generic microwave popcorn ante with a box of Quinn Popcorn – Parmesan Rosemary flavour. The bright, juicy character of the wine will be the perfect contrast for the salty-ish parmesan notes. Delicious!

In saying this, I’m going to stick with the garlicky Caesar salad pairing for the Peter Lehmann 2011 Weighbridge Chardonnay mentioned in this week’s column (above). An easy toddle around the store grabbing PC Organics Romaine Lettuce Hearts, PC Caesar Dressing and maybe even a Rhodes-Style In-Store Marinated Chicken Breast to grill and throw on top will have your dinner dialed in no time. Outlook wine expert Kurtis Kolt (right) and Hugh Ruckman of CityMarket on Lonsdale.

You paid how much!? #ShouldaUsedVancouver

For the Peter Lehmann 2011 Weighbridge Shiraz, I can’t think to do much better (or simpler) than throwing a burger on the barbecue. Let’s break from the norm though, and be adventurous with a pack of Hill’s Foods 100% Wild Kangaroo Burger patties. Seriously. After my first trip to Australia, I got hooked on kangaroo which isn’t the least bit gamey, instead offering the subtle, juicy character of traditional beef but with higher protein and lower fat. On top of all of this, kangaroo has been shown to offer many health benefits, including anticarcinogenic and anti-diabetes properties. Do me a favour though; ensure that you’ve chilled down the wine just a wee bit – it’ll retain a lot more structure this way, especially if you’re enjoying it outside. Happy shopping and enjoy the pairings!

W Long weekend blood drive success

» NEWS BRIEF

est Vancouver Police teamed up with Canadian Blood Services to help bolster blood supplies ahead of the August long weekend.

Twenty-five units of blood were collected during a mobile clinic at the West Van Rec Centre, even though some who attended were ineligible due to recent travel to restricted countries. Car accidents increase during summer long weekends but blood donations tend to drop off as donors go on vacation. “Blood is needed every minute of every day at hospitals across Canada,” said the West Van Police in a release.

The large plot of land was mostly undeveloped forest before British Pacific Properties began construction of Rodgers Creek, a multi-neighbourhood community in the Upper Lands above Highway 1. The latest section to be approved, “Area 4” comprising 23 acres, is the first to be predominately multi-family dwellings compared to single-family homes. Geoff Croll, vice-president of development for British Pacific Properties, said people are searching for alternatives to large homes as they downsize with age. In addition to duplexes, apartment suites, and large homes, the area includes six smaller family houses that are 2,500 square feet on average. “We believe there is demand in the marketplace for an alternative [housing type],” he told council. “Area 4, I think, is a really big step in the Rodgers Creek process, breaking us into what the meat of the Rodgers Creek plan was.” The goal of British Pacific Properties is to create a community with a village centre that is connected to the outdoors. Forty-two per cent of Area 4 will be publicly-owned green space and a permanent wetland is proposed at for the south end of the site. The apartment buildings, a report to council reads, will have a “contemporary alpine character” using metal for roofs along with wood, glass and stone. The other homes will use styles derived from artsand-crafts, European hillside, craftsman and coastal mountain. In 2008, 200 acres were approved by council for the Rodgers Creek development. More development extending west is likely in the future, according to British Pacific Properties: “The development of West Vancouver’s Upper Lands extending above Highway 1 from Whitby Estates to Horseshoe Bay will evolve in states over the next several decades.” mgarstin@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin

Dr. Anita Gartner, Certified Specialist in Pediatric Dentistry, with Irina and Alison.

Your child's first visit is important… we strive to make the experience fun and relaxing for everyone.

Dr. Gartner has been a Certified Specialist in Pediatric Dentistry since 1997. She is passionate about working with children and special needs individuals and is dedicated to continually improve the standard of care delivered to her patients.

Baby teeth are involved in eating, speech, holding space and guiding adult teeth into the correct position in the jaw. Oral health is linked to our children’s overall health. Poor oral health can lead to pain, swelling, disrupted sleep, poor concentration and learning as well as local and systemic (body) infections. Begin to practice good oral habits as soon as your child’s teeth erupt. These habits include flossing, brushing and eating healthy snacks.

We believe that communication and education is important to good oral health. Introducing your child to the dentist by the age of one (or six months after the first tooth erupts), not only creates a good relationship with the dental

team but it also promotes good oral habits that will last a lifetime.

Your child’s first visit is important as it forms the basis of our relationship. We work together with parents and guardians to obtain important information needed to provide excellent comprehensive dental care for your child. We strive to make this experience fun and relaxing for everyone. We will introduce your child to the dental chair and some instruments such as the “tooth counter” and “mirror”. For younger children a “lap to lap” examination may be suggested. Together you and the staff will be able to see into your child’s mouth and your child will feel safe in your arms. Radiographs are only taken when we believe that it will directly benefit your child’s dental health. Radiographs not only help us discover decay in between teeth, but also missing or additional teeth, abscesses, cysts, tumours and growth patterns. By using digital sensors, the radiation used to take radiographs is reduced by 75%.

Pediatric dentists can offer special services for children which include behaviour management, nitrous oxide, oral sedation and treatment under general anesthesia.

Dr. Gartner is active in the community and has organized free dental days for clients of the Salvation Army and YWCA. She is on staff at BC Children’s Hospital and is an Assistant Clinical Professor at UBC teaching oral sedation in the Graduate Pediatric Dental Program. Anita and her staff offer office tours, school and daycare visits where we engage children in interactive play to learn about brushing and healthy eating habits that promote healthy teeth, gums and bodies. Dr. Gartner’s other passion is spending time with her family – her husband and their two daughters. Her hobbies include horseback riding, gardening and cooking.

Rainy season explorations in North Van’s parks Spending time outdoors connects children with nature and gives them a chance for technology-free play TRICIA EDGAR CoNTRIbuToR

A

ll right, fess up: Do you really like long walks in the rain? Vancouver is known for its duck-friendly weather, and North Vancouver especially so. The bountiful fall rains help our salmon swim to their spawning grounds and grow our lush forests. Are you and your children ready to dive into the damp weather and explore the outdoors this fall? Spending time outdoors connects children with nature and gives them the opportunity to play, imagine and explore in a space that’s free from the distractions of technology. It’s also relaxing for adults and children alike. Time spent in nature boosts immunity and decreases stress levels. In North Vancouver, we’re lucky to have many nearby parks and green spaces — a natural way to relax during the back to school rush. How can you explore the outdoors with your children this fall? If you want your children to love nature, go outside with them. If you’re the scheduling sort, block off some outdoor time every weekend. Think of it as nature’s meditation class. If you can, use your time outdoors as a mini vacation from technology as well: unplugging for an hour or two helps you and your children be in the moment.

Adults often think of the outdoors as a place to exercise. If you go on a hike with the kids, great snacks are a must and it helps if the destination is exciting for children as well. Try geocaching, which is like an outdoor treasure hunt. Or conduct your own scavenger hunt: bring along a book of birds or bugs and see how many you can find. Time spent outdoors can be about play as well. If your children aren’t into hiking, see this as an opportunity to slow down. Visiting one or two spots in a park or a forest over time forges connections with that place. Balance on logs, look for bugs or play in the mud. You don’t need to go far to have a great time. Connecting to one small space and getting to know it well is also a powerful experience for children. And the rain? Once you’re outside and under the canopy of the trees, it’s often not that wet. Wear your boots, rain pants, and a sturdy jacket, and head out into our local parks on rainy days as well. It’s quiet, beautiful, and there are so many puddles to explore! -Tricia Edgar is the education coordinator at the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre (www. dnv.org/ecology) and the president of Fresh Air Learning (www.freshairlearning.org)

Longtime coach makes plans to retire after 45th year North Shore’s Dynamic Dan wants summer camp to ‘finish strong’ SHARRON HO CONtRibutOR

A

fter seeing 70,000 students of all ages pass through his sporting and motivational camps, Dan Miscisco, fondly known as “Dynamic Dan” on the North Shore, has plans to simplify and close all operations for the coming year.

The All-Star Summer Camps, which include basketball, volleyball and multi-sport programming, have been a common sight in schools and recreational centres in North Vancouver, West Vancouver and Vancouver for over 40 years. The motivational FutureSmart programs were started 25 years ago, and at one point, ran all the way from White Rock to Whistler. Now, with the intention to step away from his coaching empire, 69-year-old Miscisco has cut back programming to just North Vancouver.  “The goal is to end them in my 70th year in the 45th year of the programs,” Miscisco says.   Although a prominent figure in the community today, Miscisco never imagined starting a three-week basketball camp at St. Anthony’s school in 1969 would have amounted to an expansion “all over the place” — making him “the pioneer of summer camps.”  “My goal was just to do something I was passionate about,” Miscisco says. “And you know the expression, ‘If you’re passionate, success will come.’”  And the passion is palpable, as Miscisco recounts his days in the classroom as a teacher and as a coach. “I tried to make my instruction exciting,” Miscisco booms. “Not ordinary.” He pulls a well-loved helmet out of a bag, with a red light and green light bolted on either side. Rather than simply command players to “go”

VOTED #1 DANCE STUDIO TWO YEARS IN A ROW!

or “stop,” Miscisco would operate the helmet with a remote control, and not without wearing different coloured sneakers on his feet. “I’ve done hundreds and hundreds of camps, and I’ll go home and my objective is how can I make this exciting tomorrow,” Miscisco says. “I get excited when I instruct. I’m noisy, I’m energetic, and most importantly, I want the participants to learn… the recipe for becoming successful.”  And his efforts aren’t without recognition, as the North Shore’s longstanding coach has been awarded several accolades throughout the course of his career, including induction into the B.C. Basketball Hall of Fame, the Sport B.C.’s President Award and a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. But his greatest moments of pride don’t have to do with medals, plaques or trophies. Once again, it’s about the kids -- many of whom have become parents, and even grandparents, themselves.  “I had somebody come in and say, ‘My grandparents went to your camp.’ Think about that,” Miscisco says.  While the energetic and vibrant senior continues to live up to his moniker, Miscisco is ready to put the 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. days to rest. No more hauling boxes of treats and T-shirts from camp to camp. And no more administrational planning and coordinating.  “I want to finish strong,” he says. “I’m not a guy that does things halfway or one-third of the way. It’s full out or out.” And despite protests from parents and a feeling of “difficulty letting go,” Miscisco believes “it just might be better for the personality of the program to retire” with him.   “It’s given me a purpose for getting up every morning. It’s kept me fairly young,” Miscisco says thoughtfully. “I’m old in age, but I’m young in spirit.”  reporter@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/sharronho

West Van philanthropists appointed to the Order of B.C.

FLyINg hIgh - Kane Stewart and Sophie Jarvis (The Worst Day Ever) and Lewis Bennett and Calum MacLoed (Asian Gangs) celebrate the inclusion of their short films in the 2013 Enroute Film Festival at the Vancouver debut on July 31. Martha Perkins photo.

» FILM

Now playing at 3,500 feet Two Vancouver films in Enroute Film Festival MARTHA PERKINS ConTRibuToR

Y

our plane was delayed because some woman demanded to know why the rules about overhead luggage should apply to her. You’ve squeezed yourself into your middle-row seat only to be jolted deeper into a claustrophobic crisis when the passenger in front of you suddenly decides to hit the recline button. And then the baby three rows back starts crying, expressing what everyone is already feeling on this five-hour flight — get me out of here!! That’s when Eric Lauzon comes to your rescue. The manager of in-flight entertainment for Air Canada, he’s the one who helps determine what you can choose to watch on the small screen ahead of you. He can literally make time fly by. He knows that most of us are going to reach for the most recent Hollywood releases. But after watching that first movie, he invites you to take a few moments on the Enroute Film Festival channel. For the next four months, the 2013 finalists will be aired, four per month, with the winners — including a People’s Choice — to be announced at the Toronto gala in November. Two of the films are by Vancouver filmmakers and both are absolutely delightful. Asian Gangs is a tongue-in-cheek selfmockumentary written by and starring Lewis Bennett. In Grade 5, Bennett got into a schoolyard fight in Langley. When the principal called his mother into the office, he warned her that if Lewis didn’t change his ways, he’d one day be in an Asian gang. When, years later, his mother reminds him of the principal’s finger-wagging, the revelation sends Bennett into a tailspin of angst. Bennett — whose white, middleclass face would scream “guilt!” if you caught him eating one of his favourite Oreos cookies just before dinner — interviews his mother, some Asian friends, a retired police officer and a former gang member. Could it be possible that he was a

member of an Asian gang and didn’t know it? But the funniest scene is when Bennett invites his former elementary school nemesis back to the place where his path into gangsterhood reportedly got started, the soccer field at North Otter Elementary School. Reading the principal’s notes, they re-enact the fight and, in the end, make their peace. The film ends with Langley’s other claim to fame, the Langley Ukelele Ensemble, playing William Tell Overture. Who can’t smile at that? Asian Gangs will be screened in August. SFU grad Sophie Jarvis’s The Worst Day Ever is magic thanks to finding the perfect actor to play Barnard, White Rock’s Jakob Davies. (He’s Pinocchio in Once Upon a Time and has just filmed the next Jean-Pierre Jeaunet film, The Young and Prodigious Spivet, with Helen BonhamCarter and Callum Keith-Runney.) Barnard is eight years old and carries the weight of the world on his sturdy if small shoulders. In this malady of errors, he’s blamed for absolutely everything, including a meteor that crashes into his neighborhood. When his father shows him a drawing of what the word divorce means — dad in one house, mom in another — your heart almost breaks when this earnest, absolutely perfect young kid asks, “Where do I fit in? What about me?” He then has to listen to his parents fight about who gets to keep the dog (which dies when Barnard takes him out for a walk after his “zero-tolerance for lateness” teacher locks him out of school; he was late because he cooked a three-course breakfast for his parents.) Brilliantly funny enough to take your mind off even the most obnoxious person sitting next to on the plane, The Worst Day Ever will screen in November. But you don’t have to book an Air Canada flight to watch the films, or vote for your favourite. Go to enroutefilm.com, sit back, stretch out your legs and enjoy. twitter.com/nsoutlook

Hazards of Heat & Summer for Pets The long days of summer are a great time to have – or be –a pet. But this glorious season for outdoor activities is not without its hazards. Cats have enough sense to nap on warm afternoons, but dogs do not. If you let them, they’ll go everywhere you go, even if it’s too hot. Dogs are not good at keeping themselves cool, and they rely on us to keep them out of trouble. The fastest way to get your dog into trouble is to leave him in the car. Even a few minutes in a car on a warm day can kill a dog, so it’s best never to take a chance. Limit exercise to the coolest part of the day, no matter how happy your dog is to participate when it’s warmer. Even in the cooler part of the day, watch for signs of trouble: Glassy eyes and frantic panting indicate a dog who needs help. All dogs need access to shade and an endless supply of cool, clean water.

The B.C. government is pressing ahead with its goal of a 10-year agreement with B.C. teachers, appointing a “public administrator” to replace school trustees on the board of their provincial bargaining agency. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said the change is temporary, and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association will continue to play an important role in talks with teachers and support staff. BCPSEA will be under the direction of Michael Marchbank, CEO of the Hospital Employers’ Association, when talks with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation resume in September. Fassbender’s announcement surprised school trustees around the province. He said he spoke to or left messages for trustees on the BCPSEA executive before making the announcement in Vancouver Wednesday. The move is to meet a demand of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation to bargain directly with the B.C. government, Fassbender said. The government also intends to eliminate essential services rules that keep schools open with minimum staff during strikes. Fassbender denied the suggestion he is setting up a “showdown” with teachers that would shut down schools and turn the public against unions. The structural change is needed to achieve the stability for students and parents promised by Premier Christy Clark, he said. “It’s not about pitting them against us,” Fassbender said. “It’s about finding a new road map where we can achieve that goal.” A two-year contract extension and wage freeze imposed by the government on teachers expired at the end of June. Jim Iker, who took over this spring as BCTF president, told CKNW radio Thursday his union isn’t IND to a long-term settlement, as long as GRID 101 opposed 9 x 21 more resources are there to improve classroom conditions. The BCTF is returning to court this fall to seek restoration of bargaining for class size and special needs support. School support staff represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees are to resume negotiations for a new contract this month, after walking away last spring because their negotiators didn’t believe BCPSEA had an adequate mandate to get a settlement. CUPE employees have not had a raise in four years. AM – 07/30/13 Printed – 10:29:47

Rose of Sharon brings a touch of Hawaii BRIAN MINTER CoNtRIButoR

M

ove over Hawaii, we’ve got our own beautiful hibiscus to light up our summer gardens. Perhaps one of the most underused summer-flowering shrubs is the hardy Hibiscus syriacus althaea, or Rose of Sharon. It has been cultivated in England since the 16th century, but it is only over the past few years that, because of today’s many new varieties, it has become a more mainstream plant. Hardy to zone six, and possibly some high zone fives, it is one of the few flowering shrubs that opens in succession from July through to October. Once the mophead hydrangeas finish, there is a distinct lack of garden colour from flowering shrubs, and that’s why these plants are so important. Hibiscus are generally the last flowering shrub to show leaves in spring but they more than make up for it by being the last hurrah in the fall garden. Hibiscus can be somewhat difficult to get established. They need full sun or just a touch of shade and a little tender loving care to get going and to perform their best. Hibiscus grow just fine in a wide variety of well drained soils, but they need plenty of organic matter to hold moisture. They wilt easily in hot weather and need a deep watering during periods of long drought. Don’t move them around the garden as they are not happy being transplanted. It’s also a good idea

to mulch their roots over the first couple of winters to protect them from deep frost. Hibiscus are medium to large-sized plants, usually sold in bush form, but they can also be purchased or trained into a handsome tree form. Growing to about 3.5 metres (12 feet), they can easily be pruned in late winter to conform their size to your garden needs. There are three flower forms: large singles, semi-double and smaller doubles. My favourite is Red Heart, a large white single with a red eye that really shows up in the garden. Diana is a huge pure white triploid that remains open at night. Woodbridge is a single magenta rose with a red eye. Bluebird and Marina are improved forms of a single blue with a red eye. In the double forms, Ardens is a purple and Collie Mullens is a magenta rose with a crimson eye. The newest series from Spring Meadows Nursery in Michigan is the Chiffon Series featuring beautiful large, full semi-doubles. The blue, lavender, white and pink Chiffons are quite spectacular. Some innovative growers are planting two colours together in one container, providing a beautiful two-tone effect for a novel addition to any garden. They are just blooming now in most nurseries, and it’s a great time to see all the varieties to make a choice for your garden. Planted now, they will light up your garden for years to come. -Brian Minter is a master gardener who operates Minter Gardens

She allegedly pulled the women’s hair and threw them to the ground and was arrested soon after. The first attack occurred at a bus stop just west of Lions Gate Bridge. The suspect left the area by boarding a westbound bus before being ordered off at Park Royal North. She then allegedly attacked the second victim. The two victims suffered minor injuries and paramedics were not requested. The suspect was taken to Lions Gate Hospital and later released back into police custody. Police do not know the motive or provocation for these assaults. Neither victim knew the suspect. The suspect was released by WVPD on a promise to appear at North Vancouver provincial court on Aug. 14. Investigators are recommending charges of assault and uttering threats. mgarstin@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin

Contributions to holiday fundraiser increase efficiency of shelter The Dundarave Festival of Lights raised $35k last year, allowing the Lookout Society to double transitional housing staff SHARRoN HO CoNtRIbutoR

C

ommunity support of the Dundarave Festival of Lights has helped the Lookout Emergency Aid Society double transitional housing support on the North Shore, allowing the non-profit to offer more efficient services to the region’s homeless. The annual event, which sees Christmas trees sponsored by individuals, families and businesses along West Vancouver’s Dundarave Beach, raised $35,000 for the Lookout Society’s transitional housing program last year. According to David Newberry of the North Shore Housing Centre, the society added an additional transitional support staff to its roster. “The transitional housing program functions a lot like an apartment building, and so there is quite a bit of administrative work that needs to be done. By having a second support staff, we more than doubled the one-on-one time that people in transition are getting… so I think it’s significantly changed how things operate.” According to a Lookout Society press release, the society has been able to reduce the amount of time people remain in the transitional services program by more than 30 per cent. The shelter also posted a 22 per cent and 16 per cent drop in “turnaways” over the last two fiscal years, respectively. “Community support is essential to the operation of the society,” Newberry said. “For example, the transitional housing program doesn’t receive any operational funding, so the Dundarave Festival of Lights is very crucial.” West Vancouver Mayor Mike Smith said council looks forward to supporting the Dundarave Festival this upcoming year, and hopes residents will do the same. “It’s helping reduce homelessness on the North Shore, so it’s all good as far as we’re concerned. I’m also further happy to point out that mayor and council were the first ones to purchase a tree last year, and we’ll be doing so again this year,” Smith said. “We would encourage everybody to register for a tree.” Over the last four years, the festival has raised a total of $105,000 for the Lookout Society’s North Shore Shelter. The shelter provides 45 emergency beds year-round, which always operate full capacity.

Steep bill for British Properties landslide The owners of the house are being prosecuted for construction work the District of West Vancouver says caused a landslide into a stream below STAFF REPORTER BlAck PRESS

T

he owners of a house in the British Properties may be on the hook for a landslide that harmed a sensitive fish-bearing stream below their property.

The District of West Vancouver is prosecuting the owners of a house on Chelsea Close with charges for illegal soil deposit and construction work it says caused the landslide in March that washed into a tributary of Rodgers Creek. The municipality ordered a stop-work order in February after learning soil was being deposited on the property without a permit or sediment control plan. Although the owners applied for a permit, the district says work continued on the site while the application was being reviewed. “We take this very seriously,” said Mayor Michael Smith. “It is important that we enforce the bylaws that protect our natural environment, anyone who operates outside these regulations risks repercussions. “The owners were given ample opportunity to stop the illegal work and they chose not to. We are pursuing all appropriate charges.” After the landslide, the owners were given 14 days to remediate the site but the district says they failed to do so. Under municipal bylaws it is an offence to carry out construction work or to deposit or remove soil without a permit, and it is also an offence to dump soil in a creek.

ven to the uninitiated, nothing says “significant art exhibition” like a serious boost to security. That’s just what’s coming to the Burnaby Art Gallery this fall when it hosts two exhibitions of works by Dutch artists spanning three centuries, including several by master Rembrandt. From Sept. 7 to Nov. 17, the BAG will be home to Storms and Bright Skies: Three Centuries of Dutch Landscapes, a touring exhibition of works from the National Gallery of Canada, the first such show at the Burnaby venue in over 30 years. The 65 works on paper from the Ottawa gallery will include several 17th century etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn, the prolific Dutch master believed to have produced upwards of 600 paintings and 2,000 etchings and drawings. The National Gallery show will be joined concurrently by an exhibit of 17 works titled Inner Realms: Dutch Portraits from the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, which features a self-portrait of Rembrandt and one he did of his wife Saskia. The two shows also feature works by other Dutch masters including Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael, Adriaen van Ostade and Cornelis Janssens van Ceulen. The oldest works are two pen and ink drawings — Bird Catchers with Nets and Bird Catchers with an

Owl Decoy — by Hans Bols dating from 1582. The National Gallery approached the BAG about bringing its touring show here, said BAG assistant curator Jennifer Cane. “We thought it would be a really groundbreaking exhibition for the Burnaby Art Gallery due to the calibre of the work that’s exhibited.” It will be the first time the National Gallery show will have appeared in Western Canada. “In terms of our climate control, absolutely up to par. We’ll also be equipped with high security for the duration of the exhibition,” she said of the BAG’s ability to accommodate the works. “This is a real first, it’s almost like a mini blockbuster.” The BAG will present a related series of speakers who will talk about Dutch landscape and portraiture and in September it will host an outdoor screening of a film on Rembrandt at Civic Square next to the Bob Prittie Metrotown library branch. “Viewing works from 300 or 400 years before our time, I think it’s really insightful. I was definitely struck by the power of the landscapes that are presented,” Cane said. “As far as the portraiture exhibition, it’s really humbling to view the oil portraits of individuals from all walks of Dutch society who are now long gone.” Rembrandt suffered from depression, likely related to the loss of several children in infancy and the death of his wife as well as continued, NEXT PAGE
