Bus driver avoids criminal charges Daniel Palmer News staff

A bus driver involved in a fatal collision in downtown Victoria in August 2012 won’t face criminal charges. Stephen Ronald Finnerty was turning left from Humboldt Street northward onto Douglas Street on the morning of Aug. 13, when his tour bus allegedly struck Yuka Imaizumi in a crosswalk. Imaizumi, 27, died at the scene. She was crossing the street on a walk signal at the time, according to witnesses. The Victoria Police Department had recommended a charge of criminal negligence causing death to Crown counsel. Instead, Finnerty will head to trial April 7 to face a lesser charge of driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention under the Motor Vehicle Act. Finnerty attended a pre-trial hearing at Victoria law courts on Thursday. Imaizumi’s death prompted criticism of pedestrian safety at the Humboldt/Douglas intersection, but no traffic alterations have since been made. At the time, Victoria Coun. Lisa Helps suggested a pedestrian scramble, a model that stops all vehicle traffic for foot traffic, may be a viable option for the intersection. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Victoria’s finest hour Winston Churchill portrayor Christopher Gainor pours some bubbly for Olive Bailey, who was a code breaker in Bletchley Park, Great Britain’s secret intelligence and computers headquarters, during the Second World War. More than 30 people gathered recently around a Hawthorne tree planted in Beacon Hill Park by Churchill in 1929 to listen to stories about the former British prime minister and raise a glass in his honour. The gathering takes place every year around the time of his death (Jan. 24, 1965).

Foggy harbour? No problem, says float plane operator Daniel Palmer News staff

Harbour Air is adding landbased flights to transport passengers during foggy weather. The back-up flight service, which began last week, will use the company’s newly acquired Pilatus PC-12, an eight-seat plane

operated as Tantalus Air, as well as a chartered 30-seat aircraft when necessary. “If there’s a weather problem, we’ll get people a boarding pass then just shuttle them out to the airport on either side,” said Harbour Air spokesperson Randy Wright. Security checks will be expe-

dited at the airport as well, he added. Last week, 264 passengers flew between Vancouver Island and the mainland using the new service during heavy fog. Visibility flight rules mean seaplanes won’t fly if visibility is less than two miles in the air and 300 feet at destination or depar-

ture point, or if wind speeds are above 25 knots. Until last week, grounded seaplane customers were shuttled to the B.C. Ferries terminal at Swartz Bay. “We want to keep our people moving and this is an opportunity to do that,” Wright said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Fleming considering run at NDP leadership Vote to take place this fall Rob Fleming says pessimism among provincial New Democrats following last May’s surprising election defeat is making him consider run for his party’s top job. The 42-year-old VictoriaSwan Lake MLA says he’s “actively considering” vying for leadership of the NDP. “I think not only does our party need new leadership, but the province needs a vision that is in tune with where I think mainstream British Columbia is at,” he said. “People want a government that cares about social justice issues and environ- Rob Fleming mental stewardship, and has a strong economic plan. … That’s why I joined the NDP. And the fact that we’re not known right now as that party is, I think, the problem around failing to win elections.” Fleming was a strong supporter of Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth in the April 2011 leadership race. Farnworth narrowly lost to Adrian Dix. At the time Fleming said he wasn’t considering running for leadership. “It just doesn’t work for me right now,” he told the News in January 2011. “It would be difficult for me. I have two small children, neither are schoolaged yet, and I’m just enjoying being an MLA.” While his children are older, he says the May 2013 election loss is key in his decision-making. “What’s changed is that the NDP has lost another election that it should never have lost. And I think a lot of people in the party have reached the pessimistic conclusion about that, that the coalition isn’t big enough for the NDP to win government. I categorically reject that,” he said. Fleming, who was raised on the North Shore, plans to speak with colleagues and organizers in the coming weeks to gauge his level of support, particularly in the Lower Mainland. He expects to make a formal decision in the next couple of months. The BC NDP will select and announce its new leader this September, after a four-day day voting period. Voting will take place within the party from Sept. 24 to 27 and a new leader will be announced the following day in Vancouver. Votes will be cast over the telephone and via the Internet. – with files from Kolby Solinsky kslavin@saanichnews.com

Songhees leading by example New wellness centre opens up to community and greater region Welcomed by a series of traditional house poles and a centre statue from master carver Butch Dick, the Songhees Wellness Centre is now open to the community which built it. The large building at 1100 Admirals Rd., officially opened on Wednesday, is the culmination of more than 30 years of planning and a financial approach that required little help from outside governments. Eight years ago, then Songhees chief Robert Sam and the band council asked that a committee be formed to come up with a location, design and plan for a new community gathering place. The Kyle Wells intention was to amalgamReporting ate the seven or so administration and health and education buildings in the community. “The end result has been above and beyond what we fully envisioned as a nation,” current Chief Ron Sam said. The resulting centre is home to an elders centre, a youth centre, after-school training programs, adult education programs, a fitness gym, administrative offices and a conference centre-convertible gym, complete with a professional kitchen and room for 500 people. The centre’s health services, overseen by the First Nations Health Authority, will provide ongoing checkups for those with

Chief Ron Sam is celebrating this week’s opening of the Songhees Wellness Centre as a step forward for the community and an example of a First Nations community coming together to bring a major project to fruition. health concerns and houses a home-care service. Healthy lifestyles and prevention are also a focus, with events and education surrounding healthy eating, active lifestyles and prevention of diseases such as diabetes. The centre is kicking off services with a 12-week health challenge, which is already filled to capacity. “Now that we have this facility, we have an opportunity to bring our health-care practitioners together with the sports and recreation people, and just start talking

about the full healthy person,” director of operations Christina Clarke said. “Really, it’s mind, body, spirit and heart.” “For our people to have their own space to focus on health is huge,” Sam said. The facility will serve the band’s 530 members, along with the 2,000-odd tenants living on reserve land. It will also be open to everyone on a drop-in basis, with all sports groups having a chance to book time. Longtime Songhees soccer and canoe clubs will be housed at the facility, along with other sports. “We see ourselves as part of the region,

the greater region of Victoria,” Sam said. “Opening it up to everybody benefits us, benefits the region and shows people can accept each other and work together.” The centre is also being touted as an example of what First Nations communities can accomplish through hard work and sound financial planning. Funding was initially sought from the federal and provincial governments, which expressed great interest. When the economic collapse happened in 2008, however, the offers of funding were not quite so forthcoming. “We hit a crossroads where we weren’t sure whether we were going to be able to continue,” Clarke said. “But we met with our membership and essentially what they said was, ‘Let’s do it anyway.’” Total cost on the facility was $24 million – within five per cent of the project’s budget. Of that, $18 million was borrowed, partially through the First Nations Finance Authority. The rest came from capital funds, property taxes and other sources. VanCity Credit Union also stepped up to lend to the band, based on the strength of lease revenue and the First Nations goods and service tax. GST collected on Songhees lands is split between the federal government and the Songhees government. “That revenue stream supported the majority of the financing for this building,” Clarke said. “This isn’t about subsistence or managing poverty, this is about joining the regional economy and creating prosperity.” In the end, the only federal funding the project got was $800,000 from Health Canada and $200,000 from the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Ring in Chinese New Year early Performances to celebrate Chinese culture The Alix Goolden Performance Hall hosts a free concert this Sunday to ring in Chinese New Year, which officially happens Jan. 31. A Harmonious Celebration, now in its third year, offers a family-friendly afternoon of live song and dance to celebrate the Year of the Horse. “This event has been enormously popular since it began,” said Jane Butler-McGregor, CEO of the Victoria Conservatory of Music. “The Chinese community (are) such an important part of the cultural fabric of the region.” Former Victoria Mayor Alan Lowe will emcee the event, which

Second public hearing over sewage Daniel Palmer News staff

Esquimalt council is moving forward with the latest application to build a wastewater treatment plant at McLoughlin Point. Council unanimously approved moving the Capital Regional District application to public hearing at a standingroom only meeting at Esquimalt municipal hall Monday night. Residents from around the region addressed council on the design of the sewage treat-

ment facility, part of the CRD’s $783-million Seaterra program. “The same thing will go for public hearing – it’s not restricted to Esquimalt residents,” said Coun. Lynda Hundleby. Hundreds of people attended a similar public hearing last July at the Archie Browning Sports Centre before that application was sent back to the CRD for revision. The CRD’s current application includes design incentives for Esquimalt such as setbacks to accommodate a harbour path-

way, cycling infrastructure and an annual mitigation fee for hosting the region’s sewage treatment facility. CRD staff have also agreed to host a public open house before the public hearing to present Seaterra’s updated design plans and answer questions. The public hearing takes place 7 p.m., Feb. 18 at the Jubilee Hall in the Esquimalt Recreation Centre, 527 Fraser St. A second evening is tentatively scheduled for Feb. 19, if required. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Hospitals Foundation nears $25M goal Christopher Sun News staff

The Victoria Hospitals Foundation needs another $1.2 million to accomplish its $25-million fundraising goal. Only half that amount needs to be raised due to B.C. businessman Jim Pattison’s community matching gift challenge. In total, Pattison will donate up to $5 million to the campaign.

The foundation embarked on the Building Care Together campaign three years ago to equip the new Patient Care Centre at Royal Jubilee Hospital. “This has been one of the toughest economic times but people have rallied and they gave,” said Melanie Mahlman, foundation executive director. Originally, the foundation envisioned a two-year campaign, but extended it to three when

it fell short. Mahlman said the hope is to reach $25 million by the end of February. The 500-bed Patient Care Centre aims to have the latest technology, making a patient’s hospital stay and recovery more comfortable. New equipment to be purchased includes smart beds, rehab equipment and vital sign monitors. To donate, call 250519-1750 or visit victoriahf.ca. reporter@vicnews.com

n Pacific Opera’s cavernous carpentry hall, scattered logsized doric columns appear plucked from the debris field of the Parthenon itself. Off to the side, a chariot awaits its diva. Victoria’s ambitious opera company prides itself on building performances from the ground up, and its 10,000 square foot shop on Discovery Street is ground zero. Next month, these faux-marble wood and cardboard columns will provide the Greek backdrop for Ariadne auf Naxos, a lively and beloved opera that pokes fun at the culture of the art form. A kind of meta-opera composed by Richard Strauss and first performed in 1912, Ariadne auf Naxos takes the audience backstage of two theatre troupes prepare to perform at a home in Vienna, and opens a window into the intrigues and squabbles among cast and crew. With time running short, the wealthy patron demands that two scheduled acts, a tragedy and comedy, be performed as one. “The first half is about the mayhem off stage. The mayhem of a tenor diva and the composer having meltdown, of the wealthy patron making unreasonable demands. It’s about people behaving badly under strenuous circumstances,” says set designer Ian Rye. “It emulates real life, but exaggerated. The characters are archetypes – we call it ‘divas behaving badly.’” It’s a real life scenario not foreign to the company, but Pacific Opera’s Timothy Vernon gives his performers plenty of latitude. “I have particular regard for singers. The pressure is unreal. It’s like singing in the shower, except the curtain gets ripped off and the lights are on you,” he said laugh-

Pacific Opera designer Ian Rye (front) and composer Timothy Vernon stand among doric columns under construction for the upcoming production, Ariadne auf Naxos. Victoria’s opera house is the only one in Canada to build it props, sets and costumes from scratch.

ing. “When a singer stands unmasked on stage, and you have to produce a sound out of your body, it is very special.” Vernon is conducting Ariadne auf Naxos and is regarded Canada’s reining Strauss expert. In Vienna he studied under a direct pupil of the German composer – Rye joked that Vernon is known as “Der Strauss Meister.”

approved

“It is one of the most popular operas (Strauss) wrote and a great achievement of the form. It is top of the pile where the 20th century is concerned,” Vernon said. “It takes on all elements of opera. It’s slightly comedic and tonguein-cheek. It takes people backstage, and people love the backstage.” The opera will be performed in German with English surtitles, and includes a cast of Canadian performers for an allCanadian production, a relatively new phenomenon. “Now we have two or three generations of Canadian opera singers. Thirty years ago that wasn’t the case,” Vernon said. “We make opera from the ground up and only Victoria can make this happen. Every opera imagined there is a creative team to build it, instead of borrowing from likely a U.S. city.” Pacific Opera is the only opera company in Canada to build its sets and props, which are then loaned out, currently to companies in Vancouver, Edmonton and Santa Barbara, Calif. The Victoria production facility also produces elaborate costumes, sets and props for theatre, and was used to film four season of the children’s TV show Tiga Talk. To the uninitiated, opera can be daunting, but Vernon said most people can find a connection to the story and music. People don’t have to understand German to relate to a powerful boss making unreasonable demands, the stress of producing a show, and the eye-rolling melodramas of overbearing divas. “To see a well performed, well sung production energizes you,” Vernon says. “The music reaches into your emotional self right away. To hear the orchestra set the scene and tell a story, there is an immediacy of emotion. You can shut your eyes in fear of beauty, but you can’t shut your ears.” Ariadne auf Naxos is at the Royal Theatre on Feb. 13, 15, 21 and 23 (matinee). See pov.bc.ca.

INEQUALITY FOR ALL -(Vic) The economically devastating impact of the ever-widening income gap in the United States is the subject of a documentary that follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he examines the implications of this growing threat to the middle class. I, FRANKENSTEIN -(SilverCity/ Westshore) Aaron Eckhart stars in a special effects-driven fantasy thriller about how Mary Shelley’s legendary monster becomes mankind’s saviour as two demonic clans wage war on earth. With Bill Nighy.

CONTiNUiNG

★★★★ 12 YEARS A SLAVE -(Odeon) This harrowing, true-life tale of a free black man in 1840s America who was kidnapped and sold into slavery is this year’s Oscar front runner. Directed by Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame) and starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Brad Pitt. ★★★½ AMERICAN HUSTLE -(Odeon/SilverCity/Landmark Uni 4) David O. Russell (Three Kings, The Fighter) looks good to be collecting Oscar Gold for this screwball crime dramedy, loosely based on the 1970s Abscam scandal, when an FBI sting ensnared a bunch of congressman on corruption charges. This devil’s brew of messy emotions and sneaky double-crosses features a great cast that includes Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence. ★ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES -(Westshore) The comedic adventures of delusional, sexist, and highly self-regarding newsman Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) move from 1970s San Diego to the advent of cable news in 1980s New York. The cast includes Harrison Ford, Paul Rudd, Vince Vaughn, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kristen Wiig, and Christina Applegate. As I staggered out of this gratingly unfunny bomb I was reassured to hear someone in front of me declare, “That was the stupidest, piece-ofs%@t movie I’ve ever seen.” Amen. ★★½ AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY -(Odeon/Landmark Uni 4) A wildly dysfunctional family has an acrimonious, often venomous reunion after a funeral. Meryl Streep acts up a storm as the family matriarch, but all the shrieking and anger and emotional messiness doesn’t have much of a point. The great cast includes Chris Cooper, Sam Shepard, Julia Roberts, Juliette Lewis, Ewan McGregor, and Dermot Mulroney. ★★★½ DALLAS BUYERS CLUB -(Odeon) Matthew McConaughey has latterly gone from laughing stock to leading actor, and is currently an Oscar fave for his role in this true-life 1980s-era story of Ron Woodroof, a redneck, homophobic rodeo rider from Texas who finds out he has contracted AIDS from wild living. Given only weeks to live, Woodroof finds out about the experimental drug AZT and comes alive as a drugsmuggling AIDS activist, helping not just himself but many other sufferers. Co-star Jared Leto is also nominated, for best supporting actor. DEVIL’S DUE -(SilverCity) A pregnancy takes a turn to the dark side in this critically-derided horror flick about demonic possession. FROZEN -(SilverCity/Westshore) As a prelude to winter comes this appealing Disney animated tale about a brave woman who sets out to rescue a kingdom trapped in eternal winter. Some of the other characters include a goofy snowman and his reindeer buddy. Based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen. ★★★½ GRAVITY -(Odeon) Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in a harrowing, brilliantly-executed thriller about two astronauts aboard a space station who survive an accident only to find themselves drifting helplessly through space, with little hope of rescue or survival. Oscar loves this movie! ★★★HER -(Odeon) Most critics have loved the latest from the incomparably weird Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich), which stars Joaquin Phoenix as a lonely writer who develops an intensely intimate relationship with his computer’s Siri-like operating system (voiced

movie listings with beguiling sexiness by Scarlett Johansson). See review in the monthly Monday Magazine. ★★★THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG -(SilverCity/Westshore) Peter Jackson delivers three hours of fast-paced entertainment in this exciting, combat-filled and often funny account of Bilbo, Gandalf, and a bevy of bearded dwarves as they confront that terrifying, gold-hoarding dragon named Smaug (voiced by the suddenly ubiquitous Benedict Cumberbatch). ★★½ THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE -(SilverCity) In the middle movie of this dystopic futureworld trilogy for teens, the oddlynamed Katniss Everdeen (Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence) gets caught up in some deadly schemings after a rebellion outrages Panem’s despotic ruler (Donald Sutherland). This is predictable stuff, but boy is it popular! ★★½ JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT -(SilverCity/Westshore) A young Jack Ryan (Chris Pine, Star Trek) has to upshift from covert CIA analyst to kick-ass field agent in this high-octane thriller about a Russian plot to destroy the U.S. economy as part of a terrorist attack. Directed by Kenneth Branagh and co-starring Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley, and Colm Feore. See review. THE NUT JOB -(SilverCity/ Westshore) So-so reviews have greeted this animated romp about a curmudgeonly squirrel who gets banished from his park and has to learn to survive in the big city – so watch out, Maury’s Nut Store! With the vocal talents of Brendan Fraser, Liam Neeson, Katherine Heigl, and Will Arnett. ★★★½ PHILOMENA -(Landmark Cinema 4) Oscar-nomination speculation is already swirling around Judi Dench for her performance as a woman who was forced to give up her out-of-wedlock child 50 years ago and is now determined to track him down. This surprisingly funny dramedy co-stars Steve Coogan and is directed by the great Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Queen). ★★★LONE SURVIVOR -(SilverCity/ Westshore) The title is a bit of a spoiler, but this true-life account of four SEALs dropped into Taliban territory in Afghanistan on a very dangerous mission is kinetic and stunningly brutal. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Foster. ★★RIDE ALONG -(SilverCity) The jokes are raunchy and predictable in this action comedy about a fast-talking security guard who joins his cop brother-in-law-to-be on a ride along in order to prove himself worthy of marrying the man’s sister. With Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. ★★★ SAVING MR. BANKS -(Westshore/Landmark Uni 4) Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson are both delightful in this entertaining, true-life tale of the struggle Walt Disney had to convince the uptight English author of Mary Poppins to allow him

to make her beloved children’s book into a movie. ★★★½ THE WOLF OF WALL STREET -(Odeon/SilverCity) Revered director Martin Scorsese reunites with Leonardo DiCaprio for this electrifyingly debauched, true-life tale of Jordan Belfort, a sleazy Wall Street stockbroker at the centre of a massive financial scandal in the 1990s. With Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, and Jon Favreau.

arts@mondaymag.com Although some people who don’t often attend subtitled art films will be drawn to Blue Is The Warmest Color because of the notoriety surrounding its protracted and explicit sex scenes, they may be turned on by something rather different: immersion in one of the most affecting and emotionally resonant coming-of-age stories in recent years. Newcomer Adele Exarchopoulos stars as a 15-year-old teenager also named Adele, an ordinary girl who feels “inauthentic” when she starts a relationship with a handsome boy at her school. Then she finds herself profoundly attracted to a 20-something woman named Emma (Lea Seydoux), a worldly art student with blue hair and a circle of bohemian friends. After an initially diffident courtship the two fall madly in love and Blue proceeds to chronicle their day-to-day existence with a naturalism that gradually envelops the viewer. From awkward “meeting the family” scenes to much later sequences where Adele has become a teacher, mundane reality is persuasively captured. But it’s the rapport between the two actors that is most memorable. The film spans a decade and runs for three hours, but it never drags as Adele and Emma work through a passionate and emotional love affair where a difference in age and life experience ultimately presents challenges that can’t be kissed away. Despite being the big news at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival – the film’s director and the two female leads were, uniquely, all awarded the prestigious Palme d’Or – Blue was more recently ignored by the Golden Globes and received no Oscar nominations at all. It is a harsh snub for a film that is notably raw, authentic, honest, and intensely real. Indeed, the performance by Exarchopoulos in particular is nothing less than extraordinary. Easily one of the best films of last year, Blue is must-see viewing for followers of serious cinema. Rating: ★★★★ (Blue Is The Warmest Color runs Tues.-Sat., Jan. 28-Feb. 1 at UVic’s Cinecenta).

OUR VIEW

Poverty reduction not political fodder Poverty reduction isn’t a hard cause to get behind, and our local gang of federal and provincial representatives did just that earlier this week. On Tuesday, the Community Social Planning Council, a non-profit with a 78 year history of social advocacy in Victoria, announced the region’s 10 MPs and MLAs endorsed its Community Action Plan on Poverty. The plan outlines a series of initiatives to help improve the lot of many Greater Victoria residents and parents who struggle with low pay and a high cost of living. It doesn’t offer “silver bullets” to solve poverty, as noted by Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca MP Randall Garrison, but it recognizes that policy changes large and small, and contributions from community organizations and individuals can make big differences in people’s lives. To their credit, representatives from the federal and provincial NDP and Green parties kept the usual vitriol against the ruling parties to a minimum. They offered reasonable suggestions on taxation reform, regulating predatory lending companies, and spoke about the expense of homelessness and poverty in terms of policing, health care, the courts and social welfare. Despite being touted as a non-partisan effort, the press conference was meant to put pressure on the ruling parties in B.C. and Ottawa. Missing from Tuesday’s event of course were MLAs and MPs from the B.C. Liberals and federal Conservatives, respectively. An unfortunate by-product of Greater Victoria not having elected officials in government is that opposition members are forced to find the ear of their political foes. Good ideas and worthy initiatives should transcend party politics, but they don’t. Come election time, all parties, NDP and Greens included, crow about when the party in power adopts (or steals) their ideas. But amid the usual mudslinging of provincial politics, there is hope for poverty initiatives. The Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services, the committee which listens to citizens across the province to gauge budget priorities, and has members from the Liberals and the NDP, recommended funding a provincewide poverty reduction plan. It’s a nonpartisan start. The News is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. If talking with the editor does not resolve your complaint about coverage or story treatment, contact the B.C. Press Council. Your written concern, with documentation, should be sent to B.C. Press Council, 201 Selby St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9R 2R2.

Question

of the week

?

YOUR VIEW

Too many levels of care in hospitals Re: Nursing and care aids The efficient care of patients in hospitals has been affected by an unnecessary level of care, which also increased costs. In the 1960s the Ministry of Health decided to introduce a level of care that would reduce the work of registered nurses, such as toilet assistance and helping patients get out of bed. That was the start of the licensed practical nurse program. Years later someone decided to start a third level of care and we now have health care assistants. It’s their job to take over some of the duties of LPNs, which is ridiculous. Not helping the situation was the 12 hour day, four days per week, program negotiated by the nurses’ union. That certainly wasn’t done to improve patient care. Nursing is too demanding a profession to exceed the normal eight-hour shift. Bob Thompson Saanich

Certain dog breeds bred for aggression As inevitably as the night follows the day, every time a pit bull, rottweiler or Doberman maims or kills some innocent citizen, a cadre of apologists besiege the media with the same monotonous mantra that they are in fact loving, loyal and benign pets who have been unjustly branded as being dangerous to society. Is the penny ever going to drop for these reality-challenged people?

Victoria has been ranked as “severely unaffordable” in a recent international survey. Do you find the region’s cost of living far too high? Answer online at www.vicnews.com

Pit bulls are a strain of Staffordshire terrier bred over many generations with the specific intent of rendering them as aggressive as possible so that they might participate in “pit fights” (hence the name), the outcomes of which large sums of money were wagered. Similarly, Dobermans were bred to hunt down and kill prisoners attempting to escape from German jails. The same tedious argument is inevitably advanced; “it’s not the dog which is at fault, but rather its unsophisticated owner.” Fine, I’ll accept that. I propose that the offending animal be placed in a secure and humane facility where it might live out its days, and that its owner be put down. John Simpson Oak Bay

Private tennis courts not for public land Re: Clay court tennis proposal I have followed the discussion about the clay courts mainly through the Saanich News. May be I am missing something but I feel moved to address the topic of public and private land, which i have not seen addressed, or at least not as an important factor. We are talking here about public land, owned by the municipality, and therefore by all citizens of Saanich. To me this proposal for a tennis facility should not even be considered. In short, they are asking for land

Last Week

we asked you:

and money which belongs to all of us, but for the use of a small, exclusive group of tennis players. I am an active tennis player myself but this proposal is way out. It is my strong hope that the mayor and council of Saanich will refuse this request. As the body elected to serve and protect the public interest I expect they will. Hanny Pannekoek Saanich

Wireless reform a dropped call Some of your correspondents have rightfully chastised the media for buying into the propaganda game recently perpetrated upon us by the “visit” of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. However these mandarins are guilty of even worse subterfuge. Many Canadians have protested to the government about the high rates of wireless communication imposed upon us by the “big three.” In order to pacify us peasants, the government and its corporate sponsors loudly orchestrated the auction of bandwidth which would increase competition and lower prices. Sounds good. But at the same time, these scoundrels passed legislation that had the effect of scaring off other investors so there is, in effect, no change. Earl Smith Saanich ••• Let your voice be heard.

Lots of oohs and ahhs at Detroit Auto Show Half Page Colour

Ad Due: Jan 14th

Flocks of international journalists roamed the floors of COBO Hall in downtown Detroit for the 25th annual North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). With a plethora of automotive goodness under one roof, it’s hard to narrow down which ones to focus on. After all, there are concepts, production vehicles and more – and there are a lot of them. To kick things off on my list, let’s start with some concepts. For over a decade, MINIs have been romping the streets and making people smile, whether driving them, sitting in them or watching them. At the NAIAS, the masses were introduced to the MINI John Cooper Works Concept. Not a whole heck of a lot of information was released, but you can bet your bottom dollar that it’ll be fast. There are large air inlets, 18-inch wheels and the unmistakable MINI silhouette and face. It’s built as much for the road as it is the track. Until the production vehicle is produced, we will just have to be patient and wait for pricing, specs and all the fun stuff. Kia certainly drew the crowds when it came to their GT4 Stinger Concept. According to Kia, the “GT4 Stinger was conceived by the ‘gearheads’ in Kia’s Irvine, Calif., design studio, birthplace of iconic concept vehicles such as the Track’ster and Cross G.” The rear-wheel drive, 2+2 sports car, had a powerful stage presence. It also packs a healthy dose of 315 horsepower from a turbocharged, 4-cylinder power plant. The Korean carmaker

mentions that there are no pending plans to bring this particular car to market, however Kia has a history of delivering production vehicles that bear a strong resemblance to the concept that preceded them, and the GT4 Stinger provides a possible and highly provocative glimpse into Kia’s future. And if it’s the future we’re after, it looks good.

Moving from fantasy to fiction, we have the Honda Fit. It’s a spectacular little car that has been a popular seller in Canada. And it’s all new for 2015. Up front, the Fit sports a new grille and headlight design. Around back, there are rear reflectors, and LED taillights run along the hatch with a chrome tailgate garnish and rear diffuser. Furthermore, Honda keeps their exclusive Magic Seat, which offers multiple configurable seating positions. Translation, the Fit provides an unrivaled 52.7-cubic-feet of cargo space when the second row seats are folded flat. It also gets a bump in horses. Included is an all-

new direct-injected 1.5-litre DOHC i-VTEC engine producing 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. That’s an increase of 13 horsepower and eight lb-ft of torque compared to the outgoing engine. The VW Golf R is no stranger to Canadians. It has been sold here in the Great White North for the last couple of years. But they’re kind of like tax reductions. You hear about them, but you rarely see them. Why? Because they were sold in limited quantities. Meaning only a few hundred were allocated for Canada. But I’m hoping such is not the case with the upcoming 2015 Golf R. Making its debut at the show, you can liken it to a doughnut. A doughnut that is fat-free, calorie-free and has sprinkles on top. Yes, it’s just that delicious. The all-wheel drive fivedoor has plenty of appeal. But with the option of outfitting it with a 6-speed DSG with paddle shifters (it was previously only available with a 6-speed manual) it might just reach out to a few more takers. That’s if we can get our hands on them. Oh, and there’s an allotment of 290 horsepower, too. Speaking of cars with four cylinders and all-wheel drive, the Golf R has some competition lined up from the Subaru WRX STI. With a 305 horsepower horizontally opposed turbocharged boxer engine, multi-differential controllable all-wheel drive system, and a 6-speed gearbox, those of you looking to take shortcuts off the beaten path can do it. And you can do it in style. alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca

horsepower is also available. Here is an interesting little feature: because coupes typically have large, long doors, the reach behind the shoulder to grab the seatbelt can be a stretch. The ATS Coupe has motorized carriers to “hand” the seatbelt to the driver and front passenger upon entry. The Toyota FT-1 coupe concept caused a stir among those hungering for a return to the days of the Toyota Celica/ Supra. Company officials were coy about whether it will go into production but judging by the media attention it will. The Volkswagen Beetle Dune has a rugged off-road look, largely due to them raising the body by 50 mm and adding 19-inch wheels with large tires. Just like the old days, the new Beetle features a rear-mounted ski-rack. The concept is actually a return to an idea from January 2000, when VW showed the New Beetle Dune concept in Los Angeles. That was a flight fancy, but this concept is built on the current production model and the German manufacturer is looking for the nod to proceed from Beetle buyers. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

As goes the North American International Auto Show, so goes the industry to which it provides high profile. Every year at this time, journalists from around the world descend in thousands on this former industrial powerhouse, now economically depressed Michigan city. The Driveway team has just returned and we all agreed there was an air of optimism on the show floor that we haven’t witnessed for some years. Representatives of the Big Four domestic manufacturers believe they have turned the corner and The Big the fellow scribes appear Four domestic to agree that the North American brands have been manufacturers believe revitalized. Today in print and online, we they have turned the corner. each pick five vehicles that caught our eye. Keith Morgan Yours truly has been a fan of Honda’s premium Acura brand. All solid performers but in recent years the design team has let the range down with uninspiring looks. The 2015 Acura TLX Prototype unveiling suggests the team is out of its uninspiring funk. This performance-luxury sedan, which will launch this summer, looks fresh and sporty. It will replace the TL and the TSX and will be the design leader as new models are revealed during the next few years. TLX customers will be able to choose from two-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations; two high-performance, highly fuel-efficient new engines – 2.4-litre and 3.5-litre V6s; two new advanced transmissions; and the next generation Acura Super-Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) dynamic performance and handling technologies. Audi showed off its compact crossover concept, unimaginatively dubbed the All Road Shooting Brake concept. Based on the forthcoming TT, this concept uses the S3’s 2.0TFSi engine of 292 horsepower. It also gets a hybrid motor between the engine and the S-Tronic transmission. The market for the wagons is not big on this side of the pond, but this could be a game-changer. It combines the elegant lines of a wagon with the wide and higher stance of an off-road-capable vehicle. “The show car combines sex appeal, highly efficient e-tron-quattro technology that produces 300 kW of power yet only consumes 1.9L/100 km of fuel and cutting-edge electronic applications,” said Audi board member Ulrich Hackenberg. The 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe is based on its sedan sibling and should be available by mid-summer, starting at the mid $30,000s. The base power plant is a 2.0-litre, turbocharged inline four-cylinder, generating 272 horses, and a 3.6-litre V6, 321

Motor City looking to a brighter future horsepower is also available. Here is an interesting little feature: because coupes typically have large, long doors, the reach behind the shoulder to grab the seatbelt can be a stretch. The ATS Coupe has motorized carriers to “hand” the seatbelt to the driver and front passenger upon entry. The Toyota FT-1 coupe concept caused a stir among those hungering for a return to the days of the Toyota Celica/ Supra. Company officials were coy about whether it will go into production but judging by the media attention it will.

Porsche 911 Targa

One car that pulled big crowds was the new Porsche 911 Targa. We all know what a Porsche 911 looks like; they have been modifying the same basic shape for over 50 years. What this new Targa has is a retractable roof system that will stop traffic. At the push of a button the whole rear of the car releases and the centre convertible roof is stored underneath, then the rear section is again attached. The back panel incorporates a wraparound rear window, making a distinctive statement while keeping the overall design of the car intact. Previous Targa models had either a removable centre panel of a glorified, oversized sunroof, this new model is the best of both. Starting at $115,900, all Targa models will come with AWD and will arrive this spring.

Mercedes Benz C-Class

The C-Class is so important to the Mercedes brand in North America that they held the world debut of the C-Class here, plus it is their No. 1 selling car. Arriving later this spring and summer, this new compact sedan is longer and wider, and uses a combination of high-tensile steel and aluminum components to shed 100kg for a 20-per-cent reduction in fuel economy. An all-new turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder is the base engine with 235 horsepower. The optional 328 horsepower 3.0-litre V6 is the other power plant initially. The highlight is the more dynamic-looking exterior and superb interior. The dash is stunning, featuring a touchscreen. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

to pass them on to someone else who could appreciate their value. Crockett and his wife, Christeen – also a longtime Bruins fan – are sworn to secrecy about the outcome of the show, which sees sellers with treasures approach four professional buyers, with the goal of receiving an acceptable price. He did divulge that a producer of the program called it “one of the most memorable moments in CBC sports television history.” Regardless of the result, Crockett will always have the memory of his connection to one of the greatest players and ambassadors hockey has seen. The show airs Sunday, Jan. 26, at 8 p.m. on CBC. ddescoteau@vicnews.com

Ont., where he gave him a pair of autographed sticks. Later, when Crockett was in Vancouver to watch the Bruins play the Canucks in their inaugural NHL season, Orr invited him into the dressing room afterward to meet the players. “(Bruin star) Ken Hodge pulled me in and said ‘go get ’em kid.’ I went around the room with one of the sticks and got everybody to sign,” Crockett recalled. The sticks were stored for years and even made their way to an Alberta bar. Crockett donated them to the young owners when he went to work in the oil patch. When the bar was damaged in a fire, he got the valuable sticks back and permanently mounted them. Asked why he decided to part with them, he said it was time

Decades worth of Boston Bruins memorabilia – jerseys, hats, figurines – surround a suburban living room on Epsom Drive in Saanich. But it’s homeowner Lane Crockett’s longest-held and treasured hockey artifacts, a pair of old-time sticks gifted to him in 1969 by Bruins great Bobby Orr that are central to his appearance this Sunday on CBC’s seller-pitches-buyers show Four Rooms. “I’m actually a little nervous,” the 51-year-old University of Victoria employee said of his TV appearance. He successfully auditioned for the show in Victoria last June and taped the program in August in Toronto. The sticks, one of which is autographed by members of the 1970 Stanley Cup champions, are encased in a glass-andwood display box that includes hockey cards from each player who signed and several of Orr. The collection is dripping with both sports history and personal meaning for Crockett. He underwent open heart surgery in a rare procedure at age 7 and as a post-surgery gift, his father searched out a Boston hockey sweater. When none could be found locally, he called the Bruins directly and the club sent a huge fruit basket, an autographed picture of Orr and other Bruins items. “I call it the healing power of hockey,” said Crockett, who is healthy today. The young Victoria native’s connection to Orr didn’t stop with the hospital gift. A few months later, Orr invited Crockett, a novice hockey player, to attend his skills camp in Orillia,

IN BRIEF

Victoria athlete grabs judo gold in Regina

Tristan Alexander represented Victoria and Team B.C. proudly, winning a gold medal in under-18 and silver in under21 in the heavyweight divisions at the Saskatchewan Open judo tournament last weekend in Regina. Alexander, a 15-year-old Oak Bay High student who weighed in at 277 pounds, won three fights on points and another by a pin. Winner in the U-15

category last year, he was the youngest competitor in both age divisions this time and the lone fighter from Victoria attending. The tournament is a qualifier for the Canada Winter Games, which happen in February 2015 in Prince George.

Q: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MORTGAGE INSURANCE AND HOME INSURANCE?

HOME INSURANCE – Protects the homeowner against loss of or use of the home, or belongings contained in the home from a variety of circumstances. MORTGAGE INSURANCE – Protects the lender for the value of the loan. This is required in Canada when a property is purchased with a down payment of less than 25 per cent of the selling price. Premiums are usually rolled into mortgage payments. – Courtesy InsuranceHotline.com

BUYING TIP | Know the price range you can afford and stick to it when house-hunting

Home inspection can buy peace of mind Relatively small investment can pay off later Don Descoteau News staff

Before moving in to a newly purchased home, many people wouldn’t dream of not having house insurance in place to protect their belongings. Having a home inspected before you buy, however, can be just as important. It’s a form of insurance against being rudely surprised with major unforeseen expenses long after the contract is signed and the keys are turned over. Victoria-area realtor Jeff Bishop, who has sold homes in the area for the past eight years, says it’s important for home buyers not to get scared off by a home inspection report that shows work needs to be done. “It’s the inspector’s job to point out deficiencies,” he says. “But things have to be put into perspective with the age of the home.” People need to realize an older home, unless it has undergone a top-to-bottom renovation, may need certain things replaced, he says. The key is being realistic. “It’s a fine line,” Bishop says of working with buyers. “You need to manage expectations. It depends on what the buyer’s needs are and what’s important to them.” That may mean asking

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Home inspector Lee Ottewell peeks under roof shingles as part of his routine. whether they’re looking at a property as an investment or as a fixer-upper to live in, for example, and what their budget might be to take on certain renovations. Major undertakings to consider might include switching from septic to sewer or from oil to natural gas, both of which may require a separate inspection, Bishop says. Colwood-based Garth Anderson of Insight Home Inspections Inc., a longtime house builder who got into the inspection business 10

years ago, makes it a point to highlight positive aspects of a home along with any potential problems. “As a home inspector you’re looking from the roof right down to the foundation and everything in between,” he says. “You have to bring everything to the table, both the pros and cons. You’re giving people information to make an educated choice.” When home buyers come across what they feel is the right home for them, they often fall in love it for its features or layout. But a dif-

ferent story can sometimes lurk beneath the surface. “We go into places where a lot of people, when they walk into a house, they don’t see that,” Anderson says. “People can cover up a lot of stuff with paint and carpet, but you can have mould or asbestos in the attic or problems with water seeping into a crawlspace.” He uses such tools as thermal cameras and moisture meters to help see the effects of wear and tear on a home. Lee Ottewell of Crest Build-

ing Consultancy, a 25-year veteran inspector based in Cordova Bay, has seen numerous scenarios over the years which illustrate the value in having a home inspected before an offer is made. While the majority of homes have good structure when built, deficiencies are usually the result of improperly done alterations or a lack of proper maintenance, he says. One particular house he inspected had a truss-style roof. At some point, someone had cut the middle sections out of the weightbearing trusses to build a bedroom, he says. “I was amazed that the house hadn’t collapsed.” Bishop, who routinely gives three names of inspectors to prospective buyers, suggests that people interview potential inspectors and ask questions about their experience and the depth of their inspections. While inspectors vary in thoroughness, all are licensed in B.C. and must complete specific educational requirements and do regular upgrades. Inspections range in price, based on the property size, but tend to average between $400 and $600. Inspectors write a report, often onsite, and should take prospective buyers on a walkthrough to clarify any issues. “It’s a small fee, but it gives you peace of mind (about a major investment),” Anderson says. ddescoteau@vicnews.com

What I don’t always talk about is the great on-road driving capabilities. The Toyota 4Runner hugs the road and the bucket seats hug you. It is very comfortable to drive and you feel safe driving it. The suspension and shocks give you a firm ride but not enough to give you that washboard effect. Vision while driving is superb, with little to no blind spots. The thick steering wheel and responsive steering makes you feel like you are driving a car. Verdict The Toyota 4Runner could be on just about everybody’s wish list, given its on and off-road capabilities.

Kia GT4 Stinger

Size: 5.83”W x 14”H

Lots of oohs and ahhs at Detroit Auto Show Half Page Colour

Ad Due: Jan 14th

Flocks of international journalists roamed the floors of COBO Hall in downtown Detroit for the 25th annual North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). With a plethora of automotive goodness under one roof, it’s hard to narrow down which ones to focus on. After all, there are concepts, production vehicles and more – and there are a lot of them. To kick things off on my list, let’s start with some concepts. For over a decade, MINIs have been romping the streets and making people smile, whether driving them, sitting in them or watching them. At the NAIAS, the masses were introduced to the MINI John Cooper Works Concept. Not a whole heck of a lot of information was released, but you can bet your bottom dollar that it’ll be fast. There are large air inlets, 18-inch wheels and the unmistakable MINI silhouette and face. It’s built as much for the road as it is the track. Until the production vehicle is produced, we will just have to be patient and wait for pricing, specs and all the fun stuff. Kia certainly drew the crowds when it came to their GT4 Stinger Concept. According to Kia, the “GT4 Stinger was conceived by the ‘gearheads’ in Kia’s Irvine, Calif., design studio, birthplace of iconic concept vehicles such as the Track’ster and Cross G.” The rear-wheel drive, 2+2 sports car, had a powerful stage presence. It also packs a healthy dose of 315 horsepower from a turbocharged, 4-cylinder power plant. The Korean carmaker

mentions that there are no pending plans to bring this particular car to market, however Kia has a history of delivering production vehicles that bear a strong resemblance to the concept that preceded them, and the GT4 Stinger provides a possible and highly provocative glimpse into Kia’s future. And if it’s the future we’re after, it looks good.

Moving from fantasy to fiction, we have the Honda Fit. It’s a spectacular little car that has been a popular seller in Canada. And it’s all new for 2015. Up front, the Fit sports a new grille and headlight design. Around back, there are rear reflectors, and LED taillights run along the hatch with a chrome tailgate garnish and rear diffuser. Furthermore, Honda keeps their exclusive Magic Seat, which offers multiple configurable seating positions. Translation, the Fit provides an unrivaled 52.7-cubic-feet of cargo space when the second row seats are folded flat. It also gets a bump in horses. Included is an all-

new direct-injected 1.5-litre DOHC i-VTEC engine producing 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. That’s an increase of 13 horsepower and eight lb-ft of torque compared to the outgoing engine. The VW Golf R is no stranger to Canadians. It has been sold here in the Great White North for the last couple of years. But they’re kind of like tax reductions. You hear about them, but you rarely see them. Why? Because they were sold in limited quantities. Meaning only a few hundred were allocated for Canada. But I’m hoping such is not the case with the upcoming 2015 Golf R. Making its debut at the show, you can liken it to a doughnut. A doughnut that is fat-free, calorie-free and has sprinkles on top. Yes, it’s just that delicious. The all-wheel drive fivedoor has plenty of appeal. But with the option of outfitting it with a 6-speed DSG with paddle shifters (it was previously only available with a 6-speed manual) it might just reach out to a few more takers. That’s if we can get our hands on them. Oh, and there’s an allotment of 290 horsepower, too. Speaking of cars with four cylinders and all-wheel drive, the Golf R has some competition lined up from the Subaru WRX STI. With a 305 horsepower horizontally opposed turbocharged boxer engine, multi-differential controllable all-wheel drive system, and a 6-speed gearbox, those of you looking to take shortcuts off the beaten path can do it. And you can do it in style. alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca

horsepower is also available. Here is an interesting little feature: because coupes typically have large, long doors, the reach behind the shoulder to grab the seatbelt can be a stretch. The ATS Coupe has motorized carriers to “hand” the seatbelt to the driver and front passenger upon entry. The Toyota FT-1 coupe concept caused a stir among those hungering for a return to the days of the Toyota Celica/ Supra. Company officials were coy about whether it will go into production but judging by the media attention it will. The Volkswagen Beetle Dune has a rugged off-road look, largely due to them raising the body by 50 mm and adding 19-inch wheels with large tires. Just like the old days, the new Beetle features a rear-mounted ski-rack. The concept is actually a return to an idea from January 2000, when VW showed the New Beetle Dune concept in Los Angeles. That was a flight fancy, but this concept is built on the current production model and the German manufacturer is looking for the nod to proceed from Beetle buyers. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

As goes the North American International Auto Show, so goes the industry to which it provides high profile. Every year at this time, journalists from around the world descend in thousands on this former industrial powerhouse, now economically depressed Michigan city. The Driveway team has just returned and we all agreed there was an air of optimism on the show floor that we haven’t witnessed for some years. Representatives of the Big Four domestic manufacturers believe they have turned the corner and The Big the fellow scribes appear Four domestic to agree that the North American brands have been manufacturers believe revitalized. Today in print and online, we they have turned the corner. each pick five vehicles that caught our eye. Keith Morgan Yours truly has been a fan of Honda’s premium Acura brand. All solid performers but in recent years the design team has let the range down with uninspiring looks. The 2015 Acura TLX Prototype unveiling suggests the team is out of its uninspiring funk. This performance-luxury sedan, which will launch this summer, looks fresh and sporty. It will replace the TL and the TSX and will be the design leader as new models are revealed during the next few years. TLX customers will be able to choose from two-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations; two high-performance, highly fuel-efficient new engines – 2.4-litre and 3.5-litre V6s; two new advanced transmissions; and the next generation Acura Super-Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) dynamic performance and handling technologies. Audi showed off its compact crossover concept, unimaginatively dubbed the All Road Shooting Brake concept. Based on the forthcoming TT, this concept uses the S3’s 2.0TFSi engine of 292 horsepower. It also gets a hybrid motor between the engine and the S-Tronic transmission. The market for the wagons is not big on this side of the pond, but this could be a game-changer. It combines the elegant lines of a wagon with the wide and higher stance of an off-road-capable vehicle. “The show car combines sex appeal, highly efficient e-tron-quattro technology that produces 300 kW of power yet only consumes 1.9L/100 km of fuel and cutting-edge electronic applications,” said Audi board member Ulrich Hackenberg. The 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe is based on its sedan sibling and should be available by mid-summer, starting at the mid $30,000s. The base power plant is a 2.0-litre, turbocharged inline four-cylinder, generating 272 horses, and a 3.6-litre V6, 321

Zack’s five hot picks from the Detroit Auto Show The motor city was abuzz at this year’s North American International Auto Show. The car industry is roaring back in the U.S. and we have record sales in Canada, so there are many new products for all segments of the market.

Stingray, this new car is lower, with bigger tires and brakes, has more cooling inlets and in initial testing, is the fastest Corvette Chevrolet ever made. The Z06 will be available in the early part of 2015.

Corvette Z06

Any new F-150 is a huge deal for Ford, as it is the No. 1 selling truck in Canada for the past 48 years and the best-selling vehicle overall. The big news is that the all-new F-150 is now constructed using lighter high-tensile steel in the chassis, and high strength aluminum alloys in the body, mostly in the truck’s box. This combination contributes to a 318-kilogram reduction in weight, helping

The performance Corvette Z06 got its name back in the 1960s when customers could order a high-performance “Z06” package that delivered a track-ready Corvette. Today Chevrolet is still delivering track-ready Corvettes, now they come with the Z06 name. The all-new seventh generation Corvette Stingray was unveiled last year in Detroit and it won the North American Car of the Year award, exactly a year after it debuted. This year it was all about Z06, featuring a 625 horsepower all-new supercharged engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and for the first time the roof panel is removable for open air driving. Using the same all-aluminum platform as the regular

Ford F-150

to make the truck stronger and much more fuel-efficient. There will be four engines available from a base 3.5-litre V6 to a 5.0-litre V8 and two Ecoboost engines, a 2.7-litre and 3.5-litre V6. Ford did not have specific fuel economy numbers but they will be a significant improvement over the existing truck. Other improvements include an improved tailgate stepladder that folds away easier, and a power locking and folding tailgate. The New 2015 F-150 will be available later this year.

with a unique offering as most other manufacturers stick with two-wheel drive. The interior features the Uconnect computer interface system and is covered in soft-touch materials and supportive seats. Look for the all-new Chrysler 200 to arrive in late spring, starting at $22,495.

200. This all-new Chrysler 200 is lightyears away from that old platform. In fact, it uses the same Alfa Romeo platform found under the Dodge Dart and impressive Jeep Cherokee. The strong points of this platform are excellent on-road manners with a quiet interior and superb handling. There will be a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower or the optional 290 horsepower 3.6-litre engine found in many other Chrysler products. The Chrysler 200 will have front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive, derived from the same system used in the Jeep Cherokee. This will provide Chrysler

Porsche 911 Targa

Porsche 911 Targa

One car that pulled big crowds was the new Porsche 911 Targa. We all know what a Porsche 911 looks like; they have been modifying the same basic shape for over 50 years. What this new Targa has is a retractable roof system that will stop traffic. At the

push of a button the whole rear of the car releases and the centre convertible roof is stored underneath, then the rear section is again attached. The back panel incorporates a wraparound rear window, making a distinctive statement while keeping the overall design of the car intact. Previous Targa models had either a removable centre panel of a glorified, oversized sunroof, this new model is the best of both. Starting at $115,900, all Targa models will come with AWD and will arrive this spring.

Mercedes Benz C-Class

The C-Class is so important to the Mercedes brand in

North America that they held the world debut of the C-Class here, plus it is their No. 1 selling car. Arriving later this spring and summer, this new compact sedan is longer and wider, and uses a combination of high-tensile steel and aluminum components to shed 100kg for a 20-per-cent reduction in fuel economy. An all-new turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder is the base engine with 235 horsepower. The optional 328 horsepower 3.0-litre V6 is the other power plant initially. The highlight is the more dynamic-looking exterior and superb interior. The dash is stunning, featuring a touchscreen. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

Ford Edge 2011 to 2013

Sexy styling, superior road manners The Edge was the first midsized cross-utility vehicle from Ford when it was launched in 2007. It has been a resounding sales success, especially in Canada, where it’s built. Compared to a more traditional utility vehicle, such as the then truckbased Ford Explorer, the Edge is a lighter car-based vehicle that offers better fuel economy, sexier styling and superior road manners, yet the Edge is packed with practical utility features. Focusing on a popular vehicle choice has advantages for used vehicle shoppers. To start with, there should be a larger selection of used product available out there and this allows you to be a pickier buyer. You might even get the exact colour and content you want. Parts and servicing are also less of an issue and are generally less expensive. The first big styling revamp of the Edge came with the 2011 model year. While mainly a front/rear exterior restyling job, more than 60 per cent of its components were redesigned and the interior was completely reworked. It also earned Ford Edge the overall Best New Utility Vehicle Award from the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. The interior makeover included the introduction of MyFord Touch, an advanced connectivity system that has its critics in the media and consumer groups. Ford has tried to address these user issues with system updates. The main touchscreen is divided into four colour-coded sections (Phone, Audio, Climate and Navigation) and it can be operated with voice commands. A major under-hood change followed in 2012 with the introduction of Ecoboost, an engine series that has revitalized the entire Ford product line. The turbocharged 2.0-litre, 240 horsepower, four-cylinder engine

with direct fuel injection in the Edge provides excellent power and great fuel economy. The claimed city/ highway fuel economy is 9.9/6.6 L/100 km.

‘‘

Stylish yet practical, the good ride qualities of the Ford Edge make it an excellent road trip vehicle.

Edge comes in three front-drive trim levels: SE, SEL and Limited editions. It’s also offered with a 3.5-litre V6 engine that can produce 285 horsepower. City/highway fuel economy is 11.9/8.0 L/100 km. This engine is also mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and there’s an optional all-wheel drive system. The top “Sport” edition of Edge comes with a 3.7-litre V6 that can produce 305 horsepower and comes with huge 22-inch polished aluminum wheels. The Ecoboost editions are strictly front-drive and come with an aero body kit package with an active front grille, which has concealed shutters that control air flow through the radiator and the engine bay. The aero body kit includes unique side skirting, side mirrors and a rear liftgate

spoiler. Edge is bigger on the inside than it might appear from the outside. The cabin is spacious and the room provided for rear passengers is particularly good. Rear riders also get adjustable seatbacks and top trim levels come with a power fold-down feature that allows the seatbacks to be remotely released by switches in the rear cargo area. Two highly desirable (originally optional) active safety features are Blind Spot Detection and Cross-Traffic Alert. The blind spot system warns when another vehicle is lurking or approaching in an adjacent traffic lane. When backing out of a parking stall, the cross traffic alert system can detect and warn of vehicles approaching from either side. Stylish yet practical, the good ride qualities of the Ford Edge make it an excellent road trip vehicle, especially with the fuel-saving Ecoboost engine under hood.

Recalls

2011 - A control module problem may disable the locking function for the liftgate. 2011 - The Body Control Module (BCM) may develop an internal short and overheat, which could result in a vehicle fire. 2012 - In vehicles equipped with the 2.0-litre engine, the fuel line pulse damper may develop cracks and leak fuel, which could result in a vehicle fire. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca
