way to these so-called ‘monster houses’ in West Vancouver.” Council hopes allowing coach houses would save older heritage homes from being torn down because homeowners would have the option of maximizing their floor area with a second dwelling. Coun. Craig Cameron said construction of big houses has changed the character of the neighbourhood he lives in. “Small houses that have some heritage value — many of them have character and are consistent with the neighbourhood — are being knocked down. Ninety percent of [the new houses] are cookie-cutter, large houses built by spec builders.” Many of the recommendations outlined in the report “West Vancouver Coach House Examination” are based on community feedback. From 124 surveys submitted to the district in person and online, 78 per cent of people think coach houses would be a good fit for West Van, while 15 per cent say no and the remainder are unsure. Survey respondents were conflicted on whether to allow coach houses in all neighbourhoods. Sixty-two percent voted for free reign, while 27 per cent said to limit the backyard houses to certain areas of West Van.

On the matter of density, half (54 per cent) said coach houses should be allowed in addition to basement suites, while 49 per cent said only one form of secondary suite should be allowed per house. Not every councillor, however, agreed with all aspects of staff ’s report to council. Coun. Bill Soprovich would like to see coach houses looked at on a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood basis and acceptable lots “hand-picked,” instead of applying a blanket bylaw amendment to all of West Van. The public’s opinion at the council meeting was mixed for and against coach houses. “By adding another structure to a lot, you not only increase physical density, neighbours lose privacy,” said Heather Mersey, representative for Ambleside Dundarave Ratepayers Association. “[And there are] issues of sunlight, greenspace, trees, also parking and traffic.” The City of North Vancouver already allows coach houses, with around 25 already constructed. The District of North Vancouver is looking into the idea, but on a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood basis. mgarstin@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin

Edgemont seniors’ complex approved amid jeers DNV council gave fourth reading to bylaws on Monday evening, essentially green-lighting a 115unit, three-storey seniors’ facility for Edgemont Village

dramatic conclusion to the Edgemont Village seniors’ complex debate played out in District of North Vancouver council chambers on Monday night. Prior to the meeting, district staff and council were made aware of a petition from Edgemont residents to stop an application for a 115-unit, three-storey seniors’ independent living facility from being approved for their community. The 11th-hour petition was spearheaded by Susan Hingson, who lives across the street from Canfield Crescent and Highland Boulevard, which is the site of the proposed Edgemont Senior Living complex. She also sat on the Canfield Working Group, whose members served as liaisons between the project’s developer, district staff and the greater community. Hingson started collecting signatures after council gave third reading to rezoning and Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment bylaws on July 15, essentially green-lighting the senior’s housing project in what was a 4-3 decision. “The purpose of the petition was if we

could change one councillor’s mind, that’s all it would take to defeat the bylaws,” Hingson told The Outlook on Tuesday. “It was frustrating to think one vote can make a decision.” On Monday, council-goers were greeted by a handwritten sign that stated: “As the public hearings are closed, no further input will received on the following items…” Included on the list were the rezoning and OCP bylaws for Edgemont Senior Living. But that didn’t stop a contingent of opponents from packing council chambers to make their presence known. Mayor Richard Walton went so far as to preface the vote on the project with an explanation on public process. “We do follow a process here for introducing bylaws right through to first reading, public hearing, second and third reading and fourth reading that is pretty standard.…” Municipal policy was put to the test shortly after Walton’s statement. While he was calling the question on the motion to adopt the bylaws, Coun. Lisa Muri, a vocal opponent of the Edgemont seniors’ complex, raised her hand to speak. “Can I clarify something?” Muri asked the mayor. “So if this motion passes and the item goes forward, I would like an opportunity to put a subsequent motion forward.” At that point there were three mutually exclusive options available to council: adopt, abandon or rescind third reading of the bylaws. It was unclear to the public who had the continued, PAGE 12

Northern exposure How a B.C. rowboat crew failed in their bid to cross the Northwest Passage, but succeeded in shedding light on the dramatic impact of climate change

I

Do you think tougher enforcement is required to deter distracted drivers? Vote online: northshoreoutlook.com

f you ask Kevin Vallely how he spent his summer vacation, he could regale you with a swashbuckling tale of gale-force winds, beluga whales, wild caribou, ramen noodles, reindeer hunters and the occasional belt of good scotch. But he’d probably rather tell you about thinning ice and unprecedented species migration in the Canadian North — something he also witnessed during his trip to the Arctic. In the first week of July, Vallely, along with fellow adventurers Paul Gleeson, Frank Wolf and Denis Barnett, set out in a kevlar-hulled rowboat to tackle the Northwest Passage, from Inuvik to Pond Inlet, Nunavut, in an attempt to draw attention to global climate change. The crew estimated the journey would take around 75 days — meaning they’d finish by mid-September. But last week the modern-day explorers had to abort their ambitious crossing attempt because they’d been unexpectedly slowed and battered by severe weather. They made it as far as Cambridge Bay, a small town in Nunavut located on the southern side of Victoria Island. They’d travelled approximately 1,872 kilometres of a planned 3,000-km voyage. Vallely, a seasoned adventurer who’s conquered, among other things, Alaska’s Iditarod Trail, isn’t second-guessing the decision to call off the crossing. “Basically (the weather) made the decision for us,” he said. “It was just time and we got to a point where we were not going to make it to the end — basically we had to make it by mid-September or we’d be frozen in.” Daylight hours were slipping away, temperatures dropping and snow starting to fall. “We had some very crazy weather — weather that was not normal, according to locals,” says Vallely, a 48-year-old North Van home designer and father of two. Normally, explains Vallely, the predominant winds in the passage are westerlies and northwesterlies, meaning they should have had the wind at their backs. Instead, they encountered fierce easterlies and northeasterlies head on. “Strong winds, erratic winds,” he says. Vallely is aware global warming naysayers may seize upon the fact that the passage crossing attempt was thwarted by wind and ice to bolster their argument that climate change doesn’t exist, but he offers this strong counterpunch.

Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari and Rolls-Royce were all part of the mix as the supercars rolled into town to show off their wheels. And car-lovers everywhere were in heaven as they got a chance to choose and schmooze at events all over town.

floor first, but Coun. Roger Bassam used the district’s formal protocol of pressing his microphone button. Under this system, each speaker’s name appears in order on a computer screen visible by the mayor and district clerk. Because Bassam’s name was first in the queue, Walton acknowledged him first and he was able to make a motion that effectively only left council with two options — vote for or against adoption of the bylaws. In what was a predictable vote, the bylaws passed 4-3 with councillors Little, Muri and MacKay-Dunn dissenting. A chorus of boos erupted in council chambers immediately afterwards. Some attendees also shouted at council members, “Pitiful procedure” and “shame on you.” Walton scolded them, saying, “There is an incredible display of disrespect in this chamber.” Outside council chambers, Corrie Kost, a 40-year resident of Edgemont Village and longtime DNV council watcher couldn’t hide his disappointment. “The seniors’ complex is far too big, far beyond what was envisioned in the OCP,” said Kost. Many Edgemont residents have echoed Kost’s sentiments on the scale of the project, agreeing that it would change the character of the neighbourhood. The plans call for a 44-foot building housed on a parcel of land equivalent to the size of six single-family lots. Knowing there were people who still wanted to speak to council about the proposal was concerning to Muri. “I think it’s council’s responsibility to listen to everybody that wants to be heard,” said Muri. “Because clearly there are more concerns.” Her motion would have been to rescind the bylaws back to third reading and open the public hearing again. “I think it warranted a second look this time,” said Muri. John Kuharchuk, senior vice-president of development for Edgemont Senior Living, was

also in attendance during Monday’s council meeting. “Well, I can say that we are delighted with the result,” Kuharchuk told The Outlook, adding, the decision spoke to the need for alternative forms of seniors’ housing in the community. When asked how the public’s input factored into the final proposal, Kuharchuk said, “Well, that’s extensive, actually.” He rattled off a list of modifications that have been made since the public consultation process: the building size has been reduced from four to three storeys, the parking area has increased by 40 per cent — and a public plaza has been added at Woodbine Drive and Highland Boulevard. “In listening to the results we also learned there was a strong need for continuum of care,” said Kuharchuk. As part of a housing agreement with the district, Edgemont Senior Living must provide a minimum of 15 assisted-living units. Brian Bydwell, DNV general manager of planning, properties and permits, outlined the next steps in the application process. A development permit application will include more detailed information about the form and character of the project. Edgemont Senior Living has already submitted this information to district staff and it is expected to go before council later this fall. “We expect the development permit to be moved quite quickly — within the next couple weeks,” said Kuharchuk. Once that permit is issued Edgemont Senior Living will have two years to start construction on the project. Kuharchuk is anticipating the facility will open in late 2015. Monthly rent costs, including meals, are projected to range from $3,500 to $5,250, depending on the size of the unit. Edgemont Senior Living will offer Edgemont Village and Upper Capilano residents first crack at the units, during a 90-day advance registration period. mspitale@northshoreoutlook.com

» TASTING NOTES

Trip-worthy wines flow from the Okanagan

S

eptember is my favourite time to tour Okanagan wine country. It’s picture-perfect since the grapes are all going through veraison, the technical term for the onset of ripening when they start to change colour. It’s also a very busy time, as harvests begin, because there are visitors aplenty and the sun still shines bright throughout the day.

If you haven’t made the trip out this year, let this column be a gentle nudge that way. Keep in mind that many wineries will be offering wines in their tasting rooms that can’t commonly be found in Vancouver. These small-

Outlook wine columnist Kurtis Kolt hunts 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: I figure that since we’re celebrating local wines this week, we should definitely follow suit with our food pairings. In saying that, is there anything more simple-yet-decadent than a glass of sparkling wine paired with incredible cheese? For almost 20 years, David Wood has been toiling away on Salt Spring Island making handmade, artisan goat cheese that has been become a classic of British Columbian cuisine. Pairing the Road 13 Vineyards 2010 Sparkling Chenin Blanc with Salt Spring Island Goat Cheese works so well, not only because it acts almost like a pear and honey compote to contrast the cheese’s citrusy, salty flavours, but those bubbles will also refresh the palate after every bite.

Kurtis Kolt kurtis@kurtiskolt.com

batch exclusives are often some of their most interesting drops, so do take advantage when you come across them. Here are a handful of my favourite “tasting room-only” B.C. wines to keep an eye out for.

Perfect Pairings: Kurtis Kolt teams up with CityMarket

This tasting room at Tantalus winery makes a trip to the Okanagan even more tantalizing. Tantalus Winery photo

Lake Breeze 2012 Bench White | Naramata, B.C. | $17 | LakeBreeze.ca An aromatic blend made from Pinot Gris, Muscat, Pinot Blanc, Ehrenfelser and Gewurztraminer, this lively white is more about the sum than its parts. All these varieties add up to a lip-smackingly juicy splash of lychee, papaya, citrus and charm. Sunshine in a glass. Road 13 Vineyards 2010 Sparkling Chenin Blanc | Oliver, B.C. | $35 | Road13Vineyards.com From some of the oldest, gnarled vines in the Okanagan comes this wine of local legend. As a little selfish disclosure, Road 13 reached out to me earlier this year to assist them with putting on a couple dinners and events. One of the top reasons I was happy to oblige was knowing that I could talk them into pouring this wine and I’d be able to snag a couple glasses for myself here and there. Made in the traditional Champagne method, this sparkling dazzles with brioche, pears, honeycomb and sage. Tantalus 2011 Juveniles Pinot Noir | Kelowna, B.C. | $22.90 | Tantalus.ca The Pinot made from younger vines is a steal at 23 bucks, with a nice truffle and mushroomy nose plus plenty of plums and purple fruit on the palate. A good dusting of nutmeg gives it a little extra dimension, tying it all together nicely. Quail’s Gate 2008 Dijon Clone Selection Pinot Noir | West Kelowna, B.C. | $65 | QuailsGate.com One of the richest, most-complex and delicious Pinot Noirs in the valley, it’s a shame that this bottle is winery-only (and carries such a hefty price tag.) Pinot-geeks will adore this juicy wonder, gently swaddled in French oak, loaded with cherries, currants, cloves and finesse. Ultraexclusive and there’s not much left of this vintage; dig deep into those pockets at least once to give this one a whirl. Stag’s Hollow 2012 Grenache | Okanagan Falls, B.C. | $29.90 | StagsHollowWinery.com The only 100 per cent Grenache in Canada will have you wondering why we don’t make more. With a similar weight and structure to a Pinot Noir, there’s a bit more of a weighty punch to this bottle, bursting with cherries, blackberries and a wee bit of ginger. As always, if you’re having trouble tracking something down or just want to say hi, find me via KurtisKolt.com or Tweet me @KurtisKolt.

It probably doesn’t get much more local here on the West Coast than tucking into a veggie burger that is, yes, delicious and also so good for you! Yves Meatless Beef Burgers are loaded with soy, protein, vitamins and minerals and you can dress ‘em up any way you want. I’ve enjoyed surprising many a visitor from back east half way through chowing down on one with the reveal that, nope, that ain’t meat! With any kind of burger, a bright juicy red will usually fit the bill – which is why either Tantalus 2011 Juveniles Pinot Noir or the Quail’s Gate 2008 Dijon Clone Selection Pinot Noir will go down a treat! Finally, whether we like it or not, it seems as if autumn is almost upon us and a hearty, warming soup will be something we’ll be leaning towards more and more. No need to slave over a simmering pot for hours though; just grab a Happy Planet Moroccan Chickpea Soup and you’ll be good to go. Yup, with garlic, cumin and other spices, there is a little spice to this one, which is why the Lake Breeze 2012 Bench White will act as a well-matched foe. That hint of residual sweetness in the wine will lap up the heat while the bright, cheery fruit will keep the summer going just a wee bit longer!

During the 2011– 12 season, Sam got to play with big brother Max for the Ice. “It was a huge advantage to come in at 16 and billet with him,” he says. And while he’s managed to get in some tennis and soccer with the neighbours since he’s been home, even in the summer if often feels like hockey season. In June Sam was invited to participate in the Team Canada camp for the world juniors, where he was the

unshine and enthusiasm were the order of the day at the annual Buchanan Bowl football game between Carson Graham Eagles and Handsworth Royals Saturday. The Eagles twice erased Handsworth leads to come out on top 31-14. The two teams erupted for three touchdowns in the space of less than three minutes leading into halftime as the Royals were up 7-0 and then 14-7 before CG took over in the second half to tie the game and finally go ahead for good with six minutes left in the third quarter. Named the players of the game for the two teams were quarterback Mo Mohseni of Carson Graham and receiver/defensive lineman Dylan Weyell of Handsworth. Handsworth won the junior game 28-20. Selected players of the game were the Royals’ Sam Hughes and the Eagles’ Flynn Heyes.

Rio SX hatch high on content, low in price LORNE DRURY SPECIAL TO THE OUTLOOK

A

t one time, the smallest and lowest-priced cars in the fleet were an afterthought for most manufacturers.

The automakers simply had these econoboxes in the lineup to attract younger, first-time buyers and those on a limited budget. The bigger, more expensive models had more of a profit margin and thus got most of the attention. Those days are gone. The subcompact market in Canada is now hotly contested and no longer are the ‘low-end’ vehicles poorly styled with content not much advanced over what you’d find in a go-kart. Case in point, the 2013 Kia Rio 5-Door. My tester for the week was a top-shelf SX-trimmed model with all the bells and whistles except an automatic transmission and navigation system, but it still priced out at under the $20K mark. That’s pretty impressive for a vehicle that has features like heated leather seats, rearview camera, 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control and get this, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel— all for a car priced at $19,695. The Rio starts at just $14,195 for an LX with manual transmission. This is not a totally barebones vehicle either with power windows and door locks, heated sideview mirrors, steering wheel mounted audio controls, four-speaker stereo with satellite radio, four wheel discs with anti-lock brakes, tilt steering wheel and trip computer, to name some of the features. Move up to the LX+ for $15,695 and you get air conditioning, fog lights, heated front seats, steering wheel mounted cruise control, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and keyless entry. A six-speed automatic transmission and Active Eco System takes the price up $1,300 to $16,995 or $17,795 for the LX+Eco (AT) with 15-inch alloy

wheels and the Idle Stop & Go system. The Active Eco system is driver activated with the push of a button to optimize engine and transmission management and available only on automatics. Idle Stop & Go works as it sounds— the car shuts off at a stoplight and starts again when you take

your foot off the brake. The EX ($17,695 for manual or $18,995 for automatic) adds power sunroof, telescopic steering column, leather steering wheel and shift knob, sixspeaker stereo, rearview camera, power folding continued, PAGE 20

The Mirage is coming

Lancer better than ever For 2014, Mitsubishi has added a wide array of cool new standard features and available options

YOUR AUTOMOTIVE RESOURCE

All-new 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage goes on sale in September

I

T

t’s no longer just a mirage. Mitsubishi’s 2014 Mirage will arrive in Canada later this month.

he sporty Lancer has long been one of Mitsubishi’s perennial best-sellers. But even with that enviable streak of success, the well-respected Japanese car company has kept its foot on the gas. In 2014, they’ve made the top-selling Lancer even better, with a wide array of new standard and available options on the different trim levels (ES, SE AWC, GT and Ralliart). Some cool new features this year include, among other things, a new audio system (for all trim levels); touchscreen audio (standard on Lancer SE AWC, GT and Ralliart); touchscreen navigation system (available on Lancer GT and Ralliart); and rearview camera (standard on Lancer SE AWC, GT and Ralliart). The entry level ES Lancer is powered by a fuel-efficient 2.0-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine and comes equipped with a long list of standard features, including: the aforementioned audio system; air conditioning; remote keyless entry; anti-theft engine immobilizer; power door locks and windows, among other things. There’s also a ton of “no-cost” advanced safety technologies, that include, to name a few, advanced dual-stage front air bags with occupant seat position sensor; side-impact head protection curtain air bags (front and rear); front seat-mounted side air bags; driver’s side knee air bag; anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD); Active Stability Control (ASC) with Traction Control Logic (TCL); and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Move up a trim level —  the Lancer SE AWC – and you get Mitsubishi’s All-Wheel Control (AWC) all-wheel drive system and a more powerful 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine. The standard equipment package on the SE includes heated front seats and side view mirrors; 16-inch alloy wheels; anti-theft alarm system; power windows, mirrors and door locks; and other upgrades like new blackand-beige trim seating fabric. The next levels up are the GT model (pictured at right) and the Lancer Ralliart, which “blends ample luxury with pavementpounding performance” and comes with a 237-horsepower 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. As well, all Lancers come with Mitsubishi’s legendary long-term warranties. For more about Lancer trim level features and associated warranties, go to mitsubishicars.com.

The first cargo vessel containing Mitsubishi’s all-new three-cylinder, five-door hatchback has set sail to Canada with over 800 Mirages aboard. When it arrives, it will be among Canada’s most fuel efficient, bestbacked and lowest-priced subcompacts, starting at only $12,498 for Mirage ES with five-speed manual transmission. Mirage’s highway fuel economy rating is 4.4L/100 km (64 mpg), 4.9L/100 km (58 mpg) in combined city/highway driving and 5.3L/100 km (53 mpg) in the city YOUR AUTOMOTIVE RESOURCE for CVT-equipped models. Five-speed, manual transmission models are rated at 5.3L/100 km (53 mpg) in combined driving, 4.6L/100 km (61 mpg) highway and 5.9L/100 km (48 mpg) in city driving. The three-cylinder Mirage will be the fifth model in Mitsubishi’s lineup, and caps a year of product growth for Canada’s smallest car company following the June arrival of the new 2014 Outlander compact sport utility. The Mirage is expected to be available at North Vancouver Mitsubishi by Sept. 25. -Courtesy Metroland Media

The Mirage is coming

Lancer better than ever For 2014, Mitsubishi has added a wide array of cool new standard features and available options

YOUR AUTOMOTIVE RESOURCE

All-new 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage goes on sale in September

I

T

t’s no longer just a mirage. Mitsubishi’s 2014 Mirage will arrive in Canada later this month.

he sporty Lancer has long been one of Mitsubishi’s perennial best-sellers. But even with that enviable streak of success, the well-respected Japanese car company has kept its foot on the gas. In 2014, they’ve made the top-selling Lancer even better, with a wide array of new standard and available options on the different trim levels (ES, SE AWC, GT and Ralliart). Some cool new features this year include, among other things, a new audio system (for all trim levels); touchscreen audio (standard on Lancer SE AWC, GT and Ralliart); touchscreen navigation system (available on Lancer GT and Ralliart); and rearview camera (standard on Lancer SE AWC, GT and Ralliart). The entry level ES Lancer is powered by a fuel-efficient 2.0-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine and comes equipped with a long list of standard features, including: the aforementioned audio system; air conditioning; remote keyless entry; anti-theft engine immobilizer; power door locks and windows, among other things. There’s also a ton of “no-cost” advanced safety technologies, that include, to name a few, advanced dual-stage front air bags with occupant seat position sensor; side-impact head protection curtain air bags (front and rear); front seat-mounted side air bags; driver’s side knee air bag; anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD); Active Stability Control (ASC) with Traction Control Logic (TCL); and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Move up a trim level —  the Lancer SE AWC – and you get Mitsubishi’s All-Wheel Control (AWC) all-wheel drive system and a more powerful 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine. The standard equipment package on the SE includes heated front seats and side view mirrors; 16-inch alloy wheels; anti-theft alarm system; power windows, mirrors and door locks; and other upgrades like new blackand-beige trim seating fabric. The next levels up are the GT model (pictured at right) and the Lancer Ralliart, which “blends ample luxury with pavementpounding performance” and comes with a 237-horsepower 2.0-litre turbocharged engine.

sideview mirrors, UVO audio infotainment system, automatic headlights and more soft touch interior trim. The SX ($19,695 with manual or $20,995 with automatic) brings with it 17-inch alloys, sport tuned suspension, larger brakes, push button ignition, cooling glove box, leather upholstery, alloy sport pedals, fully automatic climate control, LED taillights, solar glass and rain-sensing wipers. While the SX trim gets some sporty ‘goodies’, it’s far from a performance vehicle with its 138 hp 1.6-litre direct injection four-cylinder engine. But it does have adequate acceleration to get you to speed at a reasonable pace and there is enough push to allow merging into high-speed traffic. On hard acceleration, engine noise is evident in the Rio, but it becomes much quieter at speed. Similarly, there is some wind and road noise, but not enough to be bothersome. The SX handles quite well and the ride is firmer than other models due to the sport suspension. What the Rio does offer is good fuel economy (6.9L/100 km city and 5.3L/100 km highway with the manual transmission or 7.1/5.5 with the automatic). Best of all is the Eco AT with numbers of 6.8/5.4. The Rio has nice styling both inside and out, thanks to a redesign in 2012. While it looks small on the outside, it doesn’t have the awkward lines exhibited by some other sub-compacts. In fact, thanks to design guru Peter Schreyer and his team, it has a Europeaninspired look that is really pleasant to the eye. Inside, Kia went to work to make it more spacious than previous generations with greater emphasis on high-grade materials and lots of standard features that would have been unheard of in this category only a few years ago. This is one of the reasons car buyers are looking at subcompacts in a much more favourable light than ever before. They’re easy to manoeuvre in tight city traffic yet stable and comfortable on high-speed roads, good on fuel and are now available with almost all the modern technology you find on more upmarket vehicles. From the driver’s seat, I had no problem finding a comfortable position with plenty of legroom even for a six-footer like myself. In back, there is 790 mm of legroom which translates into a tight fit but manageable for all but the tallest passengers. As far as cargo capacity is concerned, there is 425 litres of space with the second-row seats up and 1,410 with them folded. Since its redesign in 2012, the Kia Rio 5-Door has moved up from an also-ran to a class leader in the subcompact segment. It is high on content, high on quality and now one of the best lookers in its class. -Courtesy Metroland Media

North Van gets BC Seniors Games

WV council debates public Safety Building

Money could come from the sale of district-owned land or from raising taxes

orth Vancouver has been awarded the 2015 BC Seniors Games, which will be held from Aug. 25 to 29. It’s an opportunity for 3,500 British Columbians aged 55 and older to compete in 24-plus organized sports, including archery, soccer and swimming. “In addition to presenting a significant economic benefit to the community, the games will support our physically active seniors, and promote health and wellness to the wider community,” said CNV Mayor Darrell Mussatto in a release. DNV Mayor Richard Walton added: “The District of North Vancouver is thrilled and honoured to have been chosen to co-host the 2015 BC Seniors Games. This is a wonderful opportunity for the district to share with seniors from around B.C. our excellent facilities and passion for sport.” -The Outlook

he question of whether West Vancouver’s new Public Safety Building should be funded by raising taxes or selling off districtowned land fueled heated debate at a council meeting on Monday evening. The $36-million combined police and fire hall will sit next to district hall on 17th Street in Ambleside, replacing the aging police department on the 1300-block of Marine Drive and the main fire hall. Construction is slated to begin early next year. One option for funding is to use money from the sale of the 1300-block to Grosvenor, a deal that won’t be officially finalized until the developer can make a deal with the district on building height, density and other details. Or property taxes can be raised, an idea that originally made council weary but came back into play Monday evening. “We hired a project manager to run the project, which was to sell the existing police building and other lands on the 1300-block, take the money and build a new [Public Safety] building at no cost to the taxpayer and no increase in taxes,” said Mayor Michael Smith. “That was very clear to everybody, that was how it was being paid for.” But Coun. Nora Gambioli said relating using money from the sale of

the 1300-block for the new police and fire hall is a “serious conflict.” “I don’t want them to be related, they’ve never been related in my mind,” she said. The sale of the 1300-block shouldn’t help fund the new facility, said Coun. Craig Cameron. “We [would] take $36 million from the 1300-block, which is land which is an appreciating asset, and we buy a depreciating asset which is the Public Safety Building. In 30 years it’s worth a fraction of what it’s worth now,” he

said, adding future West Van residents will be left with no money in the endowment fund from the sale. A good alternative, he said, is to raise property taxes so people who benefit from the facility are the ones paying for it.

» COVER STORY

Bear aware After 12 years of championing black bear conservation on the North Shore, a pair of local wildlife advocates is celebrating a victory MaRia SPiTalE-lEiSK

N

orth Shore wildlife advocate Tony Webb is beginning to reap the fruits of his labour. It’s hard to imagine, but 12 years ago there were 39 habituated black bears killed on the North Shore by conservation officers in a single season. “There was a public revolt,” recalls Webb. Abhorred by what he saw as the senseless destruction of these animals, Webb banded together with residents, conservation officers, municipal staff and other community stakeholders to form the North Shore Black Bear Network. On the third Wednesday of each month, the group convenes at a B.C. Parks office at the base of Mount Seymour to talk black bear abatement strategies. At their next meeting they will discuss desired changes to the provincial Wildlife Act and local municipal bylaws around beekeeping. As of last spring, residents of multi-unit dwellings in the District of North Vancouver are allowed to keep up to 100,000 honey bees on their property. And while apiculture hobbyists are helping replenish the diminishing honey bee population, they might also be attracting unwanted visitors to their property. “Bears seem to have built up an immunity to bee stings,” explains Webb. He adds, an electric fence placed around the beekeeping operation is an effective deterrent for bears. As chairman of the NSBBN, Webb works tirelessly to reduce conflicts between humans and black bears in suburban

areas. “The root of the problem is garbage,” he says. Approximately 80 per cent of North Shore residents comply with their respective municipality’s solid waste bylaws around wildlife attractants, estimates Webb. Under a DNV bylaw, placing garbage, recyclable material or yard trimmings at curbside before 5:30 a.m. or after 7:30 a.m. on collection day can result in a $100 fine for the homeowner. The District of West Vancouver’s wildlife attractant bylaw is more stringent: residents could face a $300 fine for leaving garbage and any other refuse outside for pick-up earlier than 5 a.m. on collection day. “Eight years ago you could drive up a street on the North Shore and find all the garbage cans on the street at night. And of course all the bears would come along and knock them over,” says Webb of the strides that have been made. ****

T

here have been half as many reported bear sightings so far this year on the North Shore, compared to the same time period in 2012. WildSafeBC, a program that tracks human-wildlife conflicts in the province, recorded just over 500 bear-related calls from North Shore residents from Jan. 1 to Aug. 25. Webb has his own barometer for measuring bear activity: the number of warning signs that have been placed in neigh-


Thursday, September 12, 2013 25 Thursday, September 12, 2013 25

www.northshoreoutlook.com www.northshoreoutlook.com bourhoods. There have been 93 signs put up this year, compared to 120 in 2011. Calling it an enigma, Webb can’t explain the drastic reduction in local bear sightings. He does have some theories, though. “It’s been a good fruit year, with plenty of food around for the bears,” offers Webb. Christine Miller, education coordinator with the North Shore Black Bear Society, a non-profit arm of the NSBBN, says there are various contributing factors to variable bear statistics. “The bears last year that were destroyed could have generated a lot of calls as they roamed the community looking for accessible, unnatural food sources,” speculates Miller. It’s Miller and Webb hope that the NSBBS’s well-developed bear education program has increased public awareness and inspired residents to secure their garbage and food scraps more securely. In addition to giving presentations at schools and community events, Miller has started mailing bear awareness information to each new homeowner on the North Shore. Knowing that 1,240 homes have been sold on the North Shore this year is part of her business. Miller also responds to residences where bear attractants are present, documenting such things as garbage strewn across a property. She creates a file for provincial conservation officers or municipal bylaw officers to follow-up on. In the past year and a half, three infraction tickets under the B.C. Wildlife Act have been issued on the North Shore. In another local case, a Dangerous Wildlife Protection Order was leveled against a property owner and required the recipient to install bear-proof dumpsters. Historically, the DWV’s approach to dealing with bear attractants in neighbourhoods has been to first educate residents and only use fines as a last resort. However, after an increase in alleged violations, in 2011 West Van bylaw staff met with the NSBBS and formed a coordinated process for enforcing the wildlife attractant bylaw. “It’s really a case of education over enforcement,” explains DWV spokesperson Jeff McDonald. “In 2013 to date we have issued 13 warnings to residences and only had to issue three fines.” Volunteers from the NSBBS proactively patrol DWV neighbourhoods looking for residences where garbage has been placed outside the night before pick-up. Those homeowners are sent an information card advising them of the dangers of this practice, which also educates them on the bylaw. As residents become more educated, Webb has found them to be less frightful of the burly animals. “Now when people phone the Bear Line they are not in a state of panic,” he says. ****

N

ow in his 80s, Webb is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to championing wildlife conservation. In 2008 he was honoured by the DNV for his efforts in protecting wildlife in the area. His ultimate goal is to see the North Shore municipalities receive Bear Smart status. The criteria for this provincially-funded program is set out by the Ministry of Environment and requires eligible cities to have strictly enforced bylaws for not attracting bears. According to Webb, there is no animal attractant bylaw in North Vancouver that addresses residents having overflowing garbage containers in their carport. In the District of Squamish, which has Bear Smart status, residents are required to use bear-resistant garbage containers. The DNV is currently mulling the use of similar bins as they look at overhauling their solid waste collection system. An option currently being discussed is the 240-litre, hard-plastic cart outfitted with two heavy-duty clasps and steel around the lid. If approved by council, each district resident would pay approximately $120 for the locking cart. Every day, conservation officer Ashley Page sees first hand the detrimental effects of mismanaged garbage. Page, who works in the North Vancouver-Sea-to-Sky zone, believes bears are creatures of habit. “If they get food or rewards in an area they will come back,” she explains. Such was the case on Aug. 21 when conservation officers were forced to kill their first bear on the North Shore this year. “It’s the worst part of my job,” says Page of having to destroy habituated bears. The three-year-old bear, which had previously been relocated to Fromme Mountain, was found roaming around Greenwood Park near East 20th Street and Ridgeway Avenue in North Vancouver. “Relocation doesn’t work — I think we have gotten that point across. Habituated bears always come back to the food source,” says Webb. Still, Webb takes comfort in the fact that, with each passing year, fewer bears are being killed on the North Shore. “Oh, yes, absolutely — there has been a lot of change,” he says. “But we have to keep going. You only need one person on a street to be a bear attractant.” mspitale@northshoreoutlook.com

Karen Joseph, executive director of Reconciliation Canada, sits with her daughter Sadie Rivers, who decorated tiles as gifts for people who take part in the Walk for Reconciliation on Sept. 22.

T

he effect of residential schools on First Nations people can be a difficult topic for adults to understand, and even more challenging to explain to young children. But staff at Norgate elementary have found a way to gradually introduce the topic to students through an art project in cooperation with Reconciliation Canada, an organization that strives to revitalize relationships between aboriginal people and

all Canadians. Decorated with positive words like “Hope,” “Bravery,” and “Smile,” the students designed small wooden tiles that will be given to participants in the Walk for Reconciliation that takes place in downtown Vancouver on Sept. 22. The tiles honour and commemorate children that were placed in residential schools throughout Canada, including St. Paul’s Indian Residential School that ran in North Van from 1889 to 1958. More than 2,000 students attended the school, mostly from the Squamish Nation. Back then the students, who mainly lived at the residential school, were punished for using their language and made to feel shameful of their culture and traditions. The students at Norgate elementary are learning about this history in a way that is sensitive to their young age, such as by decorating the tiles as gifts. “Many of the First Nations people across the country have a tradition of gifting when we have our ceremonies,” explains Karen Joseph, executive direc-

tor of Reconciliation Canada, whose father Chief Dr. Robert Joseph went to residential school in Alert Bay, off of northern Vancouver Island. “The purpose of the gifting within those ceremonies is not in the grandiosity of the people who are gifting but it’s actually in the accepting of the gift, that they understood the work, that they support the messages and intentions of what was going on during the ceremonies. “It’s also payment for them to carry that message forward.” Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission is unique, says Joseph, because it’s court mandated and overseen and addresses human rights violations of children. “The tiles for us, having them made

my children, is a reminder of what we’re talking about here,” she adds. Her daughter Sadie Rivers, who is in Grade 2 at Norgate, took part in making the tiles and will be giving them out during the Walk for Reconciliation, which is expected to draw 50,000 participants along the route from the Queen Elizabeth Theatre to Science World. “By accepting the tiles, they make a promise to make the world better,” says Norgate’s principal Lisa Upton, who explained the project to students at an assembly where First Nations leaders encouraged students to get up and dance along to singing and drumming. mgarstin@northshoreoutlook.com twitter.com/MichaelaGarstin

This fall, green is the new “it” colour — which is just fine with So Blü’s Jennifer Sharp. “I personally really love green,” she enthuses. From emerald to teal to army green. “Any shade of green — something for everyone.” For Sharp, keeping an eye on fashion trends is part of her business. “My job is to take what trends I see out there and bring them into the store but on a level that’s relatable to my customer,” she says. And this fall there are lots of new looks. Here’s what Sharp sees trending. 1. ‘Head-to-toe’: Wearing shades of all the same colour. For a woman, that might mean being decked out in all winter white. Or, for men, “different hues of grey together,” she says.

2. Ankle boots: This year’s trend in fall footwear is boots on the down-lo and Sharp has a selection of Frye and J Shoes boots for men and women in her store. “Those are really popular for fall.”

3. Pleather and fur accents: “That goes for both men and women,” says Sharp, noting a touch of street punk is in season, with just a hint of fur or pleather, like a jacket lining or shoulder patch. 4. Graphic Patterns: Don’t be afraid to wear patterns together — similar style and colour — on the top and the bottom. Also, a ’60s mod look for

women with black-and-white patterns (hound’s-tooth, check pattern, etc.) is back.

5. Colour blocking: Last fall this was big: Wearing primary colours together, like, say a yellow top and blue pants and red belt. “The trend continues,” Sharp says, only to “another level.” 6. Colour of the year: Green.

7. Boho and ethnic-inspired pieces: “Using a piece of ethnic jewelry as an accent,” says Sharp, who notes that Free People’s bohemianinspired lines now have company as other brands are going hippie.

8. Return of the Chanel-style jacket: But instead of wearing it made up with a tailored suit, make it more street-style, with jeans and a T.

Along with the question, “What’s new this season,” another thing that Sharp hears all the time is, “Am I too old for that?” Her answer is always, ‘no.’ “You can interpret a trend that works at any age.”

Growing up in Deep Cove, he was in the first Boys Only program at the Arts Umbrella and has since performed in productions of Alberta Ballet’s Nutcracker, Ballet BC’s Peter Pan and during the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Vancouver. Now an apprentice with Ballet BC, the 20-year-old is in the company’s production of Tilt, featuring the return of Walking Mad and two other original world premieres, which runs Oct. 17 to 19 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Originally performed in Vancouver in 2012, Walking Mad is touted as one of “riveting

unpredictably, replicating the Socratic theme that ‘our greatest blessings come to us by way of madness.’” The ballet explores situations and conflicts in romantic relationships, explains Fowler, who portrays a controlling and even violent partner. “A lot of the duet movement symbolizes the man has control over the woman, and he’s manipulating how the relationship is,” he says of his part in Walking Mad, which was created by John Inger for Netherlands Dance Theatre in 2001 and praised as “a riotous hit, a clever, surreal romp” by the Boston Globe. At just nine years old, Fowler chose ballet after his mother enrolled him in a class. He was home-schooled in North Vancouver

Teen Book Buddies needed - Like to read? Well, you can share your love of books with children ages 6-11, who need a little help or encouragement to hone their reading skills. The North Vancouver Public Library‘s Book Buddies program runs Tuesdays, from Oct. 1 to Nov. 26. Children are matched with older book buddies who get together each week for 30 minutes to read aloud to each other, find books and play fun literacy games. If you are in Grades 10-12 and interested in committing to 26 volunteer hours over two months at Parkgate Branch, you can attend an info session on Sept. 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Lynn Valley Main Library, 3rd floor boardroom. For more info, contact Alison Campbell at 604-990-5800 ext. 8118 or alicam@nvdpl.ca.

until high school, when he chose Magee secondary in Kerrisdale, which had a program that allowed him to take academic classes half the day and train the rest. He went on to the Arts Umbrella graduate program in 2011 and attended summer intensive programs at American Ballet Theatre and the National Ballet School. He’s worked with many top ballet choreographers, including John Alleyne, Gioconda Barbuto, Aszure Barton, James Kudelka, Emily Molnar, Donald Sales and Lesley Telford. “It’s definitely full-time. There’s not really much you can do when you go home because it’s night time and you just have time to eat dinner,” says Fowler of his long hours practising for Tilt. “You have to like it, it’s not a job to get money. If you’re not enjoying it, it would be really hard.” Tickets for Tilt are available for $22 to $70 at ticketmaster.ca.

We offer quality training, in a positive atmosphere, to inspire confident movers of all kinds.

Hard haggling begins over TransLink referendum Mayors first want more power via governance reform JEFF NAGEL BLack PrEss

N

egotiations between the province and Metro Vancouver mayors are about to move into high gear over the future of TransLink and the mechanics of a referendum Victoria insists is coming on increased transit funding. Transportation Minister Todd Stone met regional mayors’ council chair Richard Walton Sept. 4 and the minister will meet the full mayors’ council on Sept. 26 to try to hammer out agreement on key issues. Walton said he still has no sense of what the referendum question will be or when it will be held – the minister has suggested next spring is better than fall of 2014 so TransLink’s needs don’t become a political football in municipal elections. But mayors intend to focus first on a deal to reform governance of TransLink to gain more control over spending priorities, rather the current system where they can only approve or reject major tax or fare increases and the unelected professional board decides everything else. Some mayors want to boycott the referendum if they can’t wrest back much more power from the board. “I wouldn’t say it’s a precondition, but the governance is ultimately an obstacle to us resolving some of these issues,” Walton said. It’s not yet clear, he added, whether the province will agree to major reform – perhaps even restoring a fully elected board of the sort swept away in 2008 – or just minor tweaking. Meanwhile, he said, time is fast running out for a referendum that would have any chance of passing, as a huge public information campaign will be required, along with a clear champion of the yes side. “That is a huge issue,” Walton said. “Look at what the government when through with the HST. And time is marching on.”

Mayors in the spring opposed the referendum on any new TransLink taxes, which was a BC Liberal election promise, and urged the province to reconsider. It’s unclear what funding source or sources will be proposed – mayors have suggested an annual vehicle levy or a small regional sales tax are among the easiest to implement, while comprehensive road tolling would take years of research and planning. Also up in the air is who will pay to actually conduct the referendum and run the yes campaign, and what role the mayors’ council might play, since its legislation doesn’t anticipate referenda. Richard Walton “If the referendum is coming, we need some clear direction,” Walton said. “If the referendum is happening, I think the question and everything needs to be worked out clearly by November at the latest.” Failure would be disastrous, he said. “If a referendum does not pass, the region suffers economically, ridership suffers and TransLink is going to be under siege. The consequences for the region are significant.” ‘Daunting’ decision

Walton said one challenge in crafting the referendum question is to decide whether new money would only go to large rapid transit expansion projects, which he said might be supported south of the Fraser due to the large extension proposed in Surrey but defeated by the rest of the region. The alternative, he said, may be to also raise extra money for a broad improvement in bus and SkyTrain frequency everywhere to help meet rising demand. “You may then find folks in Langley, folks in Delta, folks in North Van and Maple Ridge will all see some-

thing of value for them.” Still, he said, public anger with TransLink is “almost universal” in that virtually every city believes it’s not getting enough service back for the taxes and fees they pay in. That was exacerbated, he said, when TransLink indicated $23.5 billion in spending is needed over 30 years to maintain existing lines and build needed new ones. “To me it just gets people upset and generates a lot of criticism. Yet what they’re doing is what the legislation says they have to do. So TransLink’s between a rock and a hard place.” TransLink board chair Nancy Olewiler said TransLink is attempting to assist with the “daunting” task of crafting a referendum by researching the experience with transportation plebiscites in other jurisdictions, including the U.S. “It would be excellent from the current board’s point of view if the government could at least signal what its intentions are,” she said. “We don’t even know what the scope of the question is going to be.” The question must also be one voters can understand, Olewiler said. She noted the HST referendum was at least simple, unlike the complex eight-question referendum on aboriginal treaty-making principles conducted by the BC Liberal government in 2002. “A lot of people sat home because they couldn’t figure out that question,” she said. To be determined, she said, is how much money the referendum would seek to raise, what projects it would go to and over what period of time. A five-year investment plan is different from a 10-year one, she said, and also from one that promises that specific projects be built in specific cities by specific years. Leaving out major upgrades that are important to a particular city, or pushing them back too far, would risk defeat among those voters, she said.

In the Lower Mainland, driver distraction is blamed as a factor in 31 deaths a year and in 91 fatalities province-wide. Transportation ministry officials estimate drivers are four times likelier to crash when talking on a handCpl. Richard held phone while driving and 23 De Jong times more likely to be in a crash if texting. Enforcement by officers handing out $167 fines will be stepped up throughout September, according to police. And officials kicked off the campaign last Thursday using a simulator to show the effect of distractions on a driver. “Driving is a complex task that requires your full attention,” ICBC interim president Mark Blucher said. “When you’re distracted behind the wheel your reaction time is significantly reduced. Distracted driving is a common cause of rear-end crashes and injuries – there is no safe following distance when your mind is not on the road.” A 2012 survey for ICBC found B.C. motorists consider texting while driving to be just as risky as drinking and driving, yet 40 per cent of those who own cellphones admit they’ve used a hand-held phone while driving. ICBC says its statistics count use of communications or video equipment among the sources of driver distraction, along with driver inattention and other sources of internal or external distraction. In a news release, North Vancouver RCMP spokesman Cpl. Richard De Jong said,“The key message is to leave your
