The big fire that destroyed two heritage buildings in downtown New Westminster Oct. 10 may have forced Norm Friesen’s retirement from cutting hair a few weeks earlier than he’d planned, but it didn’t extinguish the affection of many of his longtime customers. Friesen had been a fixture in the Downtown for more than 40 years, the past 17 in his little shop on McKenzie Street, behind Copp’s Shoes. By the time the smoke cleared, the entire E.L. Lewis block, including Norm’s Barber Shop, was a pile of smouldering bricks. Friesen’s appointment book, filled with the names of regular customers squeezing in one last visit, one final haircut before Norm locked the door for good, was ash. Ready or not, Norm’s retirement had begun. Please see ‘IT’S THAT BIT OF STABILITY’, A3 COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS Single Vision 95 $ Lenses with Frames Bifocal Vision Lenses with Frames

‘It’s that bit of stability. Things come and go but Norm was always the same’ ⫸

continued from FRONT PAGE

But on Nov. 2, many of those customers will gather at an open house to share stories, trade tips for finding a new barber and say goodbye to their friend. “I’ll find another barber, but it won’t be the same,” said Max Jacquiard, the renowned train artist who first got his hair cut by Norm in 1975, when the shop was located on Sixth Street, next to the old Naomi’s Café. Jacquiard said their relationship first started as one of convenience. He worked at Smith Reid Printers around the corner on Agnes Street and Norm’s system of booking haircuts only by appointment meant he could plan his grooming for his lunch hours. “At other barbers, the barber did so much talking I’d have to leave before I could get my hair cut,” said Jacquiard, who had planned to get his hair cut by Norm one last time on Nov. 1. Proximity was what drew Don Elliot into Norm’s shop the first time in 1976, but getting his hair cut by Norm or chatting with him as they drank coffee in Naomi’s quickly became part of his regular routine. “We used to have a good time,” said Elliot, who ran a photo studio on Carnarvon Street. “We never saw each other outside of the business itself, but it was a relationship of friendship.” In fact, the two became cohorts of sorts, regularly planing down the bottom of the front door to Naomi’s as the old building leaned ever more through the years. And when proprietor Naomi Shimizu finally decided to close the café for good, Elliot and Friesen teamed up to create a commemorative photo for all of her regular customers gathered in front of the venerable coffee shop. But to make that happen there couldn’t be any cars parked in front, recalled Elliot. So he and Norm mocked up re-creations of the signs the city often posts for temporary parking

MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER FILE

Norm Friesen cut hair and made music in his one-man barbershop in downtown New Westminster for more than 40 years. His shop was destroyed in the Oct. 10 fire, forcing him into retirement a few weeks earlier than he’d planned. His former longtime customers will be holding an open house for him on Nov. 2.

restrictions, authentic right down to their red lettering and the 2x2-inch stakes the signs are stapled to, then mounted them on the parking meters in front of Naomi’s. Sure enough, when the group gathered early on a Sunday morning for the photo, the way was clear. A copy of that photo, mounted on the wall of Norm’s barber shop, perished in the fire. Elliot said he hopes to find the negative so he can make another print. Neil Douglas was working at Bob Tartini’s old music shop just up the hill on Sixth Street in 1972 when he got his first haircut from Norm. The two quickly discovered they shared a passion for music, as Norm spent his downtime between hair appointments writing and performing gospel music. “We talked about music and

whatever he was doing,” said Douglas, who will be hosting the open house at his home next to his guitar shop on 12th Street. “The half hour would go by pretty quickly.” As a memento of all his time spent in Norm’s barber shop, Douglas had arranged to purchase the big wall mirror in which thousands of new haircuts had been admired. He planned to mount it in his home gym. Of course the mirror was destroyed in the fire, and when Douglas called his old friend that morning, Norm was philosophical. “Now it’s more expensive because it’s smoked glass,” he quipped. That easygoing humour and familiarity kept Dan Mott a customer for almost 20 years. The president of Mott Electric even travelled from his ranch near Princeton for his regular appointments. “It’s always a little comforting to slide into his chair,” said Mott. “It sort of ties into the small town nature of it. It had the feel of a small town barbershop.” Indeed, even as New Westminster grew, Norm and his community of customers stayed tight. All of them followed him to McKenzie Street when the block on Sixth Street was scheduled for redevelopment. “We used to talk about Columbia Street, what’s going on, what’s new, or the characters that used to haunt the street,” said Mott. “Norm’s was always the meeting place,” said Douglas. “You’re not going there to get something done, you’re going there to see a friend and catch up on things.” “He knew everybody’s style of hair,” added Elliot. “It’s that bit of stability. Things come and go but Norm was always the same.” • An open house to celebrate Norm’s retirement will be held Nov. 2, 2-4 p.m. at 829 12th Street. Call 604-525-8512 for more information.

OPINION NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

PUBLISHED & PRINTED BY BLACK PRESS LTD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Scandal scramble The scandal over the Senate grew larger Monday, with allegations from Senator Mike Duffy’s lawyer that Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office knew a lot more about Duffy’s controversial expenses than the PM is admitting. These are simply allegations from a lawyer, but there is a hint that Duffy has some evidence to back these claims, in the form of emails from the prime minister’s office (PMO). The impetus for this extraordinary spectacle of a senator in disrepute taking aim at the prime minister who appointed him to the Senate is a move being pushed by the Conservatives (almost certainly crafted in the PMO). They want to take away the pay of Senators Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau — even though Duffy and Wallin, as yet, are facing no charges. Brazeau is facing charges in a domestic dispute, and has been suspended with pay from the Senate. His expenses are also in question, but he faces no charges on this matter yet. While public opinion likely backs the suspension of the three senators’ pay, all of us, even senators in disrepute, deserve fair process. There may well be a case for suspending Brazeau’s pay, given that he is facing criminal charges, but for the moment Duffy and Wallin should have the right to confront their accusers head-on and sit in the Senate until charged with criminal offences. The uproar over their expenses is legitimate, but it is not yet a criminal matter. Suspending their pay is a brazen attempt to try and take the heat off the prime minister, who appointed all three and campaigned on a platform of Senate reform. The Conservatives and PMO cooked up a scheme which may come back to bite Harper in a very severe fashion. —Langley Times/Black Press

A vicious, political circle Local politicians are so out of touch with the people who pay their bills, they blithely take pay raises each year. They do it by rote – without even thinking. The latest to take dollars out of taxpayers’ pockets are the very well-paid directors of Metro Vancouver. As most of these people are mayors, they are already at the top of the local governmentsalary food chain. They are well-compensated in their own municipalities, and each of them also gets a decent stipend for being part of the TransLink Mayors’ Council. The latest Metro pay increase is a modest (for these people) 2.3 per cent for 2013, retroactive to the beginning of the year. It means politicians get $354 for every Metro board or committee meeting they attend. If the meeting runs more than four hours, the amount they receive doubles. One wonders how often politicians in the fourth hour of a meeting look at their watches and

Frank Bucholtz are tempted to talk just a little longer on a specific topic. The meeting fees that Metro politicians receive has jumped 40 per cent in five years – from $253 per meeting in 2008. Since that time, of course, there has been a worldwide recession. The Lower Mainland economy is still soft in many respects, and a large number of the people who pay taxes to all levels of government have not received any raises. If they have, very few of them have seen a 40 per cent pay increase since 2008. Metro Vancouver chair Greg Moore, who is also mayor of Port Coquitlam, has no problem justifying the latest pay increase. “Those are the rules that we live in,” he said. “We’ve tried to do it as fairly and transparently

as we can and this is what we’ve come up with.” He says Metro has to be sure that politicians don’t fall behind. It isn’t just the Metro board that is so out of touch. City Councils are constantly comparing themselves to other cities – usually looking for those who hand out larger increases. They then raise their pay accordingly and justify it by saying “the other guy is doing it.” Metro itself sets the pay for meetings based on the median rate of pay for mayors in the region. So it is one big vicious circle: Mayors’ salaries are based on other mayors’ salaries; Metro salaries are based on mayors’ salaries; and cities base their ongoing and constant pay raises on decisions made in other communities. Local politicians should lose all power to give themselves raises. It’s easy to say that voters can get rid of them if they are offended by the raises, but until more people start paying attention and actually voting,

that is not likely to happen. Perhaps the provincial government needs to regulate the salaries paid to local politicians and set a maximum amount based on the size of the community. That maximum should include all extra meeting fees, such as Metro Vancouver and TransLink fees. At one time, the province did just that with school trustees. In the early 1980s, trustees were permitted to make a maximum of $2,000 per year, with the school board chair allowed to collect up to $4,000. That low level of pay didn’t stop people from running for school trustee positions, and by implicitly agreeing to that low salary as candidates, they set a good example of public service. It’s too bad that attitude of serving the public and not being in it for oneself has fallen out of favour so badly with municipal politicians.

Palmer insists he’s still president of Hyack ⫸

from front page

They had initiated the SGM to consider resolutions to remove Palmer, Munro and Wardle. After filing their notice, the executive had responded with special resolutions of their own for the meeting, calling for the ouster of the five, as well as director Michail Boncea. The division between the two sides was created when the executive board fired executive director Douglas Smith on July 31. The board of directors, however, said the executive didn’t have the power to remove Smith and reinstated him. Although he returned briefly, Smith left because conditions he had asked for, including the removal of Palmer and Munro, weren’t met. According to the directors who resigned, Hyack avoided litigation by reaching an agreement with Smith last week, which they said will saddle the association with substantial settlement and legal costs. Registered parliamentarian Eli Mina had been brought in to run Tuesday’s meeting but in their resignation letter the five directors said Mina quit because of “repeated interference and unilateral and illegitimate actions by the President, Gavin Palmer.” When Wright found out Mina had bowed out, he stopped being neutral. “I was extremely disturbed when one of the most professional parliamentarians in the province had to resign. That didn’t make sense to me,” said the mayor. Without a parliamentarian running the meeting, the group of five decided to resign, believing their special resolutions to remove Palmer, Munro and

Survey to measure community health Mario Bartel

Deanna Tan Francoeur and Shelly Schnee can ride their bikes to work because they have ready access to a safe route to their destinations and places to lock them when they arrive. The exercise keeps them fit and builds their appetite for healthy meals. But not everybody in New Westminster enjoys those kinds of options—one reason the city is in the process of finding out how to create a healthier community. Until March 31 residents can participate in the My Health My Community survey that looks at their physical activity, health and nutrition and how they’re influenced by the community around them. The survey,

BC Parkway section to be repaved A section of the BC Parkway where it enters New Westminster will be repaved in the near future according to TransLink. The repaving will be done on a bumpy stretch that runs from London Street in New West to the other side of the overpass that spans Southridge Drive in Burnaby.

which launched last summer, is a joint project of Fraser Health, Vancouver Coastal Health and the University of British Columbia. The results will allow the health authorities and participating communities like New West to build a picture of residents’ health and make plans for programs, services and infrastructure to ensure and enhance it. The data also fills an important information gap left when the federal Conservative government decided in 2011 to cancel the long-form census, said Tan Francoeur, a community health specialist for Fraser Health. “It all adds to the

bigger picture,” said Tan Francoeur. That picture includes things like transportation issues, safe places for kids to play, the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables, access to programs for seniors. It’s a broader definition of health than just how people are feeling. “Health is also where you live, work and play,” said Tan Francoeur. Schnee, the recreation programmer at Century House, said knowing more about the community’s needs will allow her to better target services and activities. “I want to know how the community is feeling,” said Schnee. “If there’s an issue that

needs to be addressed, the data will give me direction.” The goal, said Tan Francoeur, is to make the city more livable. “It will remind us how we’ve done a good job, and how to do a better job,” she said. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and can be done online in English or Chinese. A hard copy version that is also available in Punjabi can be obtained at Century House. Tan Francoeur said to be statistically accurate the survey must yield about 1,100 responses that will also form a baseline for any future studies. • To learn more about the My Health My Community survey, and to register to take it, go to www. myhealthmycommunity. org.

12 secrets about popular horror movies

ORDER YOUR GIANT HALLOWEEN APPLE TODAY!

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Lougheed Town Centre 9855 Austin Ave., Burnaby | 604.420.0188

If Halloween typically finds you curled up on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn in hand and a favorite scary movie all set to play, you may be interested to learn some behind-the-scenes horror movie trivia. Certain movies may have turned out entirely different if they had starred different actors, and special effects may not seem so scary if you know what’s actually behind them. Here are 12 interesting horror movie tidbits in honor of Halloween. 1. Few movies are shot in the order the scenes play out in the final cut. However, Texas Chainsaw Massacre was filmed in chronological order. 2. Johnny Depp is known for taking on some eccentric roles, including Edward Scissorhands. However, Tom Cruise was initially offered the title role in that film, ultimately turning it down because he wanted a happier ending. 3. Jack Nicholson evoked fear in many in his role in The Shining. But Robin Williams and Robert De Niro also were

considered to play the part. Interestingly, Nicholson also was considered for the role of Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs, a role ultimately played by Anthony Hopkins. 4. Tim Curry’s real hair was used in his role as Pennywise the Clown in It. 5. Chocolate syrup has often been used as blood in horror movies. In the movie Psycho, chocolate sauce was used because it appeared more realistic in black-and-white filming during the famous shower scene. 6. The symbolic white mask that Michael Myers wears in Halloween is actually a mask of William Shatner. The production crew bought the cheapest mask they could find at a party store and spray-painted it white. 7. Long before Andrew Lloyd Webber turned The Phantom of the Opera into one of the most successful musicals of all time, it was a movie called The

Phantom based on Gaston Leroux’s book. The Phantom’s name is Erik, and he was a construction worker who helped build the Paris Opera House. 8. Almost 50 gallons of fake blood were used while shooting Scream. 9. The Blair Witch Project took eight days to shoot and had a miniscule budget but went on to gross $140 million domestically. 10. Carrie was the first Stephen King book adapted to film. 11. In the film Stir of Echoes, Kevin Bacon’s hypnosis sequences are followed by a musical note so viewers were not left in a hypnotized state. 12. Father O’Malley, the priest who played Father Dyer in The Exorcist, was involved in the case that inspired the movie. He claims the plot is based on an exorcism of a young boy in Maryland and that the movie is 80 percent factual.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

In a two-hour drive, the only time I dropped the anchors was when one of Amsterdam’s kazillion cyclists cut in front of me. Keith Morgan

The BMWi electric car powered its way with ease around city streets and along picturesque Dutch canals.

KEITH MORGAN

The future is electric AMSTERDAM – BMW has joined the race for the electric car dollar. On the evidence of two days driving the funky-looking all-electric i3 through the narrow streets of old Amsterdam and alongside the picturesque canals of rural Holland, the German manufacturer may have a winner. For starters, it is simply great fun to drive. The lithium-ion battery, encased in an aluminum cage below the five-seater cabin, provides enough instant zap to the electric motor to propel the car smoothly to 100 klicks in less than eight seconds. Left the stopwatch

at home, but counting “one-and-two etc.” to count seconds, my lips barely mouthed “six” before the speedo leapt from 80 to 120 km/h while passing. It handles beautifully at any speed and hugs the road; thanks to the technology-laden aluminum platform, that gives it a very low centre of gravity. Turns on a Euro too, as we found during the many U-turns made on blocked streets. Of course, F1 take-offs will suck the battery dry somewhat more quickly but you need not be a snail in the so-called Comfort mode to achieve the advertised 160 kilometres range on a full

2014 Mazda 3 is solid and fun to drive

‘‘

I truly believe that Mazda is onto something, this is the best car in the compact class.

Zack Spencer

’’

Mazda, on a global scale, is a small company, so developing new products is a major undertaking. This is why they shared engineering with the Ford Motor Company for many years. But that relationship dissolved in 2010. Instead of modifying existing, co-developed vehicles platforms, engines and transmission, the company took a radical turn in the way they develop new products. I’m sure by now you have seen Mazda’s ads for “Skyactiv Technology”. This is the name for their radical design and manufacturing approach. By engineering vehicles from a blank sheet of paper, Mazda could focus on simplifying the manufacturing process to save money, a crucial part of this small company’s survival. This new 2014 Mazda3 is the third vehicle to be built using Mazda’s

Skyactiv Technology, behind the Mazda CX-5 SUV and Mazda6 sedan. Looks The platform used to build this all new Mazda3 is a shared chassis with the other two Skyactiv products. They elongate, widen or shorten the platform to suit each vehicle. In this case, it is slightly shorter then the CX-5. In fact, the new Mazda3 is lower, wider and slightly shorter than the last model but the wheelbase has been stretched by 60mm. This pushes the wheels out to the corner of the car, providing a solid stance and improving interior space. Then Mazda went about hand forming the body to produce a style that conveys motion, even standing still. Sold as a sedan or hatchback, the long hood, sweeping lines and powerful stance make a statement in a class that can be rather subdued. Inside The goal for this latest model was to have a dynamic looking interior, fitted with materials and features not typically found in a compact car. The dashboard is covered with a soft, rather plush-feeling material. Then there is the dash-mounted communication screen placed in the centre of the dash. This is

The Lowdown Power: 2.0L 4-cylinder

with 155hp or 2.5L with 184hp Fill-up: 9.9L/7.0L/100km (city/highway) Sticker price:

$15,995-$29,895 standard on the middle GS and upper GT trim; the base GX is not so lucky. The driver can touch the screen to access music, navigation and phone settings but once the car is in motion the screen is only adjustable through a rotary dial controller between the front seats. Mazda places three easy-to-memorize buttons above the dial for access to the most common functions. On the top GT model there is even a heads-up display that sits right on top of the driver’s instrument cluster, helping to keep the information high enough that it focuses the driver’ s attention on the road. The seats are comfortable and can be fitted with leather on the top model. Even though Mazda lengthened the wheelbase by 60mm, the back seat isn’t long on legroom. Drive By developing the direct injection engines, chassis and transmission at the same time, the Mazda engineers were able to

The 2014 Mazda 3 includes a heads-up display on the dash. shed weight. The lighter platform and powerful 2.0L 4-cylinder with 155hp is a nice match on the base and GS trim levels, driving either a 6-speed manual or all-new 6-speed automatic. The top GT is equipped with a 2.5L engine with 184hp but is only available with the automatic. I’m surprised that the manual is not offered with this engine, as driving enthusiasts will be attracted to this engine right away. On the road, the

steering is very quick and the feedback well above average. The previous Mazda3 was at the top of the class in terms of driving dynamics and this new model takes it to a whole new level. I’m confident in saying that this new model feels like a much more expensive car. Verdict The standard features list is strong, including

keyless entry, push button start, Bluetooth and USB connectivity for $15,995. If you equip the base model with air conditioning and automatic transmission, the price jumps to $18,795. The middle GS trim is the place most Canadians will shop and the range is from $19,695-$22,595 for things like heated seats, leather steering wheel, rain sensing wipers and more. The top GT with the larger engine, 18-inch wheels, xenon

headlamps, Bose stereo and navigation, ranges from $25,855-$$29,855. As you can see, the price can ratchet up rather quickly. The upside is that this is a car that can provide solid, fun to drive transportation, wrapped in a stylish package. Higher-end models feel like a much more expensive car, with qualities not found previously in this class. So, the price might be justified. I truly believe that Mazda is onto something.

Amy Lawson, 35, leads an active life. She likes to be outdoors, to play sports, surf, bake and has a thriving social life. Professionally, she was recently promoted to be the Territory Manager for

Drydock Footwear Group. Her territory covers British Columbia and Alberta. Being on the road is a sizeable component of her work. When it came time to trade in her Nissan Xtrail – which she loved to pieces – she was torn when deciding what vehicle to purchase. “The Xtrail has been a fabulous car, but I’ve outgrown it and need something that can better accommodate all my equipment,” she says. In the process, she considered SUVs, hatchbacks and crossovers. The Ford Flex, Ford Escape, Honda Pilot, Mitsubishi Outlander were on her list to look at. Amy states, “When I started to research vehicles, the No. 1 thing on my priority list

Amy Lawson was seeking a lot of interior space for equipment. was interior space. I needed lots of it.” She continues, “I didn’t

mind if the vehicle wasn’t sexy! I need functional. Good looks were secondary

to me.” Because of her current role, it requires travelling

around the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, BC and Alberta with various promotional gear, display units, sample products and more. Not to mention, if she can pack in her sports equipment like her bicycle, snowboard or surfboard in too, that would be even better. Price was also a factor for her. “I had a budget to work with, and I needed my payments to be around $500 a month,” Amy mentions. “And since I’d be spending a fair amount of time behind the wheel, I’d need something that was comfortable, too.” When chatting about potential matches, the idea of a minivan came up.

I saw the excitement in her eyes. In her personal life, she is not the typical minivan candidate. With no children to drive to hockey or soccer practice, some people might question her enthusiasm. But to her, it seemed like the perfect fit. “I was just so excited about it. Minivans make life so much easier and you can just do so much with them,” she explains. “It made a lot more sense than a pickup and much more sense than an SUV.” A few minivans/minivanesque vehicles she looked into were the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna and Mazda5. continued on page 21

Best classic cars for ten grand or less Rob Sass

Driveway Contributor

Most of the focus on the collector car world comes from televised auctions where six-figure cars are the norm, so it’s easy to conclude that the average person is priced out of the collector car world. But the fact of the matter is there are still plenty of interesting collectible cars out there for under 10 grand. Granted, they tend to be from the 1970s and 1980s rather than the 1950s or 1960s, but they’re all fun to drive and relatively easy to live with. Here are five of our favorites: 1. 1985-93 Ford Mustang: The third generation or “Fox” platform Mustang brought affordable V-8 muscle back to the masses. Although it was introduced in 1979, better breathing cylinder heads and a re-designed four-barrel carburetor in 1985 pushed horsepower above 200 for the first time since the early 1970s. The relatively light and simple design of the car made the best use of

the newfound ponies. While the oldest are just under 30 years old, the collector world is starting to wake up. Still, nice 5.0-litre V-8 examples of all three body styles (coupe, hatchback and convertible) are available in LX and GT trim for 10 grand or less. 2. 1966-77 Ford Bronco: The Bronco pushes the 10 grand budget the most and you’ll have to look hard to find an unrusted or unmodified original Bronco in this price range, but they do occasionally lurk on Craigslist. Competition for the likes of the International Harvester Scout, early Broncos look right in the way that early Land Rovers do and collectors have taken a big shine to them lately. Buy now. 3. 1965-69 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa coupe: The poor Corvair. Shunned by Chevy fans and import fans alike, it really is a poorman’s Porsche, with styling on the second generation cars as nice as anything to come out of Germany, Italy or the U.S. at that time. Corvairs pioneered the use of turbocharging, and

A 1966 Ford Bronco, 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa coupe, and a 1983 Porsche 944. later cars could be made to handle quite well with some relatively inexpensive modifications, in spite of what Ralph Nader said. Incidentally, the 50th anniversary of the book “Unsafe at Any Speed” is coming up the year after next. Good reason to buy a Corvair, we think. Jay Leno loves his red Corsa Coupe. 4. 1983-91 Porsche 944 coupe: The vintage Porsche market is on fire

right now, with some cars appreciating 300 percent or more over the last five years. All have one thing in common — they’re air cooled and the engine is in the back. Water-cooled front-engine Porsches have yet to see the love from collectors, and we think that the 944 is one of the best of the bunch. A derivative of the nicely balanced but underpowered 924, the fender bulges

and smoother and more powerful balance shaftequipped twin-cam four was just what Dr. Porsche ordered to make the 944 a credible performance car. Maintenance doesn’t come cheaply (break a timing belt and you’ll wish you hadn’t been born), but the 944 is a bargain-priced precision instrument for dissecting curvy back roads. 5. 1976 Chevrolet Corvette: Malaise-era Cor-

vettes get a bum rap from most Corvette fans but in reality, they’re quite nice and anything but pathetically slow. The move from gross to net horsepower makes it seem as though power was down more than it really was, and mid-1970s Corvettes came in some great colors with nice options like competition-inspired gymkhana

suspension and aluminum wheels. Looks weren’t really compromised by bumper standards with Chevy’s solution of hiding the bumpers under body-colored urethane panels among the best of any manufacturer. • Hagerty is the world’s leading specialist provider of classic car and boat insurance.

Amid lingering global financial turmoil, recession recovery was already in high-gear at Ford, with a 40 per cent year-over-year sales gain that made Ford the top-selling automaker in Canada, in 2009. It was also the year it launched an all-new 2010 model year version of its popular mid-sized family car the Ford Fusion. The 2010 Fusion was offered in SE and SEL trim levels with a choice of a 2.5-litre I4 or a 3.0-litre V6 engines and a 3.5-litre V6 powered an all-new Fusion

Sport model with all-wheeldrive. Ford also introduced its first hybrid edition of Fusion with an Atkinson cycle version of the 2.5-litre engine and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (e-CVT). The hybrid’s battery is a nickel-metal hydride type that’s smaller and lighter than competitors and it’s temperature is controlled by air extracted from the passenger cabin. Claimed city/highway fuel consumption is a very impressive 4.6/5.4 L/100km. Fuel consumption ratings for the other Fusion engines are as follows; 9.4/6.4 L/100 km (city/highway) for the 2.5-litre; 11.1/7.3 (city/ highway) for the 3.0-litre V6 models; and 12.7/8.3 (city/ highway) for the 3.5-litre with all-wheel drive. A new optional safety feature on the 2010 Fusion (well worth having) was a Blind Spot system that comes with Cross Traffic Alert, which was unique to Ford. Radar sensors in the rear side quarter panels can de-

tect a moving object within a 20 metre (65-ft) range on either side. Great to have when vision is restricted (as it often is) when backing out of a parking stall. This generation is also a quieter Fusion. Changes to reduce cabin noise levels include an acoustic windshield, thicker front-door glass, new hood insulators, additional sound deadening in the trunk and a new headliner in the cabin that’s made with an absorption material. An air filter that removes respiratory irritants and toxins from entering the cabin was also a new standard feature of Fusion. A new standard innovation was a fuel filler system called EasyFuel. Not only does it eliminate the need to remove a gas cap when filling up, it reduces evaporative emissions. You simply push the fuel-pump nozzle into a gas tank receptacle and it automatically seals shut when removed. Six standard airbags helped the Fusion attain a top five-

star crash-test rating. If an air bag is deployed, Fusion also has a unique emergency alert system that flashes the hazard warning lights and sounds the horn, to attract attention. An electronic stability-control system with a brakeactivated traction control

system was a new standard safety feature. The MyKey security system was made a standard feature on the 2011 Fusion, a spotter mirror, to help eliminate blind spots, was incorporated in the door mirrors and the SE edition got standard automatic

‘A lot of anxiety’ in buying a car continued from page 17

Though the Honda and Toyota appealed to her, it was the Dodge Grand Caravan that had exactly what she was looking for. It was in her price range and had some handy features that would allow easy loading and unloading of her gear. She even really likes its look. Amy tells me, “I can fit two mountain bikes inside with

people and still have room for more.” The Dodge Grand Caravan that she selected is the Crewe trim, which also came with some extras. She has a towing package, a rear DVD entertainment system (perfect for passing time on ferry rides!), Stow ‘n Go seats, remote keyless entry to the doors and liftgate and more. While she can’t be happier

with her purchase, the signing on the dotted line did make her heart beat quite a bit faster. “There’s a lot of anxiety to buying a car. It’s a big purchase and you want to make sure you make the best choice you can.” And speaking of choices, the biggest question when selecting her chariot of choice? “Should I get the white one

or the black one?!” she jokingly asked. She went with black. When looking back on the experience and looking at her Grand Caravan, she happily says, “What I didn’t think would be a very sexy vehicle ended up being the sexiest to me. And there’s so much space!” Ladies, if you’re looking at buying a new vehicle and

headlights. No significant changes were made for 2012. Good reliability, owner satisfaction and low cost of repair ratings helped the 2012 Ford Fusion get a “Recommend” rating from Consumer Reports. Ford Fusion buyers also

benefit from having a good supply of them on the market and used prices tend to be reasonable. A potentially great value pre-owned purchase.

Erratic drivers An early morning drive from Kelowna to Vancouver is normally a pleasurable experience. But a recent a jaunt was made much less so by an erratic driver, whose actions required all fellow travellers to watch his antics with great care and attention. The young guy at the wheel of a late model Honda CR-V constantly changed speed, below and beyond the posted speed limit. If he wasn’t passing and cutting in too early, he was inexplicably reducing his speed and dropping back in the passing lane. Thank goodness, he pulled off at Merritt.

Regional district boosts meeting fees to $354

Jeff Nagel

Black Press

Metro Vancouver directors have received a 2.3 per cent increase in the meeting fees they collect – retroactive to the start of the year. Metro directors are now paid $354 for every regional district board or committee meeting they attend, up from $346 in 2012. The fees double if a meeting runs longer than four hours. The salary paid by Metro to the board chair – Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore – also rose 2.3 per cent to $70,865, while vice-chair Raymond Louie is paid half that amount. All the stipends and fees are in addition to what local cities pay their mayors and councillors. The regional politicians didn’t vote on the pay hike – the increases are calculated by Metro staff according to a formula set out in a bylaw. The chair and vicechair salaries and the meeting fees are all pegged to the median of Metro Vancouver mayors’ salaries, so if several cities increase their mayors’ pay, the Metro fees also climb. Most cities recalibrate their mayors’ pay each year, some based on a similar regional median or average, and some are pegged to the negotiated increase of unionized staff. Top paid mayors in the region, according to Metro’s figures, are Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson at $152,756, Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan at $139,206, Coquitlam’s Richard Stewart at $133,741,

Metro Vanccouver politicians get pay raise Surrey’s Dianne Watts at $130,533 and Delta’s Lois Jackson at $128,701. Those figures all include the base salary plus car allowance and any other taxable benefits. Moore said pay for politicians’ service at the regional level can’t fall behind and Metro’s approach ensures directors don’t vote on their own pay hikes. “Those are the rules

that we live in,” he said. “We’ve tried to do it as fairly and transparently as we can and this is what we’ve come up with.” Metro Vancouver paid out $870,000 in remuneration to its directors last year, plus $60,690 in expenses. Directors fees have climbed 40 per cent over the past five years, from $253 per meeting in 2008.

Deadline for depreciation reports coming in December By Michael LaPorte, CRP, AACI, P. App.

On Dec. 13, 2011, the B.C. Government created the regulation related to depreciation reports, affecting all strata corporations in B.C. with five units or greater. This regulation requires all regulated strata corporations formed on or before Dec. 14, 2011 to either have a Depreciation Report completed

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

by Dec. 13, 2013, or self-exempt through a 75 per cent vote of owners at either an annual general meeting or special general meeting. Newer strata corporations will have longer to comply, with their depreciation report deadline being six months after their newly formed strata corporation’s second AGM. A depreciation report is a study which determines the funding needs of a strata corporation, related to the common components of the property which are the responsibility of the strata corporation to maintain or repair, and which require repairs and maintenance work less often than annually.

The majority of B.C.’s strata corporations have still not had their report completed. Many strata corporations have chosen to self-exempt, whether on the principle that they would like to defer indefinitely, or perhaps in the hope that with greater experience and qualified individuals the price of these reports may come down, or because they are running out of time. With the deadline approaching, many strata corporations will opt for having a self-exemption vote, even if they wish to have the report completed in the near future. A vote to selfexempt could be presented, along with a resolution to fund and complete the depreciation report in the new year. If your strata corporation has already completed their report or deferred through self-exemption, you have met the current legislated requirements. However, if your strata corporation has still not addressed this issue, the time is now. For the full story, visit www.bclocalnews.com/business/ realestate/228659901.html

Saltaire is perfectly located to take advantage of everything the White Rock boardwalk has to offer while still being away from the hustle and bustle. With spacious floorplans, gorgeous kitchens and amazing views, Saltaire offers something for everyone.

White Rock luxury and gorgeous views at Saltaire By Kerry Vital

White Rock is one of the Lower Mainland’s most popular cities, with its own character and unique style. Now developer Ledingham McAllister is putting its own stamp on the area with Saltaire, its 36-unit condominium development just moments from the beach. “White Rock is where people come to play,” says Ledingham McAllister Senior VicePresident of Marketing and Design Manuela Mirecki. “Buyers at Saltaire live where others

play.” Built in a contemporary West Coast style, there’s plenty of curb appeal at Saltaire. Cultured stone and heavy timber elements combine with elegant brick and wood detailing to present a beautiful picture. “We wanted to maximize the amount of windows and view vistas,” Mirecki says. “It’s built in an L-shape, which maximizes the number of corner homes.” The one- and three-bedroom homes range from approximately 720 to 1,634 square feet, with nine-foot ceilings and engineered hardwood flooring in the main living areas. Huge windows let the light pour in, making your home feel expansive and open. “You can sit in your living room and see Semiahmoo Bay,” Mirecki says. “It really brings the outdoors in.” The largest two-bedroom-and-den homes, which Mirecki calls “the rotunda homes” are

particularly amazing, with seriously gorgeous interior architecture and views. “You get unbelievable sweeping vistas and decks in these homes,” says Mirecki. There are also exposed wood beams in a sunburst pattern on the ceiling and an incredible amount of space to relax or entertain. Among the gorgeous features you’ll find at Saltaire are gourmet kitchens with stainlesssteel appliances, generous breakfast bars and islands and your choice of two designer colour schemes, Classic and Contemporary. The Classic scheme includes Shaker cabinetry in a classic white finish, complemented by white quartz stone countertops and a Bianco Venatino marble backsplash. The Contemporary scheme features flat-panel walnut finish cabinetry and natural grey quartz stone countertops with a gloss-white ripple effect backsplash. “Everyone comments on the kitchen,” says

Mirecki. In the bathrooms, you’ll find porcelain tile flooring and a modern rectangular undermount sink. Some homes include frameless glass showers with a porcelain tile surround, while the luxurious master ensuite holds a soaker tub. Every home includes a large outdoor space with stunning views of Boundary Bay or the North Shore mountains. “Our sales manager says she’s never received more compliments on a project before,” says Mirecki. “We’ve had literally thousands of people through our display suites.” Saltaire is located just off the White Rock boardwalk, so residents can easily take advantage of everything the area has to offer. Whether you’re in the mood for shopping, dining or recreation activities, you’re within walking distance. You’ll also have easy access to Highway 99. “You’re right in the middle of a pedestrianfriendly walking district,” Mirecki says. Ledingham McAllister has a reputation for quality homes and great value, and has been family-owned and operated for 108 years. Mirecki notes that buyers at Saltaire are assured of great customer service and excellent construction. Homes at Saltaire start at $339,900 and are ready to move into this November. For more information, visit www.ledmac.com/saltaire, call 604-560-1656 or visit the presentation centre at 1418 Johnston Road, White Rock, open daily except Friday between noon and 5 p.m.
