North Van kitten survives pellet gun attack James Weldon

A North Vancouver man is warning pet owners and parents to take care around Halloween after his family’s four-month-old kitten was shot with a pellet. Ian Steward got a frantic call at work from his 11-year-old daughter on Monday saying their cat, Bailey, had been injured. Steward returned to his house on East 10th Street to find the animal limping. A closer examination revealed a lead pellet lodged just behind its left front leg. The man popped the object out and rushed Bailey to a veterinarian, who operated on the cat and kept it overnight. The animal is back home now and recovering well, albeit sporting a humiliating plastic cone. But the close call rattled the family, said Steward. It was particularly upsetting for Steward’s daughter, who recently lost another cat to a coyote. “She thought this was the end of her second cat,” he said. “She was very shaken up. She just didn’t understand why somebody would want to shoot See Firing page 3

Botox defence beats drink charge Jane Seyd

A woman in West Vancouver has had her charge of refusing to give a breath sample tossed out in court after telling a judge she couldn’t blow into the roadside screening device because her face was frozen from Botox injections. Paddi Anne Moore, 51, used the unusual Botox defence while representing herself during a trial on a charge of refusing to give a breath sample in North Vancouver provincial court. Moore was pulled over in West Vancouver shortly after midnight on April 24 and asked to blow into the roadside-screening device. Moore was given four chances to blow into the breathalyzer,

but the equipment failed to register a sample every time. Moore argued in court she couldn’t purse her lips properly around the roadside device because of Botox injections she had received 10 days earlier in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, where she lives for part of the year. Cpl. Fred Harding of the West Vancouver police said Moore first came to his attention because she was driving 50 kilometres per hour on a stretch of highway where the speed limit is 90 km/h. He said he pulled her over after Moore drove through a commercial brake check area on the side of the highway and almost collided

with two other vehicles when she pulled out. After Moore acknowledged drinking alcohol that night, Harding asked her to blow into the roadside breathalyzer device. But “she made no attempt to blow,” he said. In a letter handed up to the judge in court, Moore’s Mexican doctor wrote that “the physical effects of Botox injections to the upper lip and mouth area is that the patient is unable to purse (her) lips or whistle.” The doctor wrote it is not uncommon for someone who has had the injections to be unable “to wrap their lips around a straw or wide circumference such as a breathalyzer blow apparatus” for up to six months. Botox injections — which prevent wrinkles by partially paralyzing facial muscles — are a common plastic surgery procedure. See Police page 5

Teeth smashed in bus attack Victim tried to get aggressors to leave bus and was then beaten James Weldon

From page 1

a north vancouver man is calling for improved security on the lower mainland’s transit system after he was allegedly beaten by a group of men on a lynn valley bus.

Steven Andrews, 27, was sitting near the back of a crowded No. 228 heading up Lonsdale Avenue at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, when four men boarded the vehicle and stood in the aisle just ahead of him. The group was acting belligerent, said Andrews, making rude comments to other passengers, and at one point slapping a young man who was seated nearby in the head. When some of the riders objected, Andrews suggested to the man nearest him that they leave the bus before police arrived, he said. The man confronted him, and when Andrews backed down, the man punched him in the face, he said. “Before I knew it, there were multiple punches: He hit me right in the mouth, broke a couple of teeth and then his friends jumped in as well,” said Andrews. “There were at least three guys on top of me throwing as many punches and kicks as they could.” Andrews was covering his head throughout, but as far as he could tell, no one attempted to pull the men off. “It seemed like I was getting punched and kicked for a good amount of time,” he said. “I think the guys got off me themselves just because the bus had stopped and they realized they had to get out of there.” The suspects fled just after the bus turned on to East Third Street. Andrews got to his feet, made his way to the front of the bus and asked the driver to call police. The driver pulled over at Ridgeway Avenue to wait. North Vancouver RCMP soon arrived and took a description. Not long after, they tracked one of the suspected assailants to First Street and Lonsdale Avenue and arrested him. Andrews identified him in a photo lineup the following evening. Andrews was left with bruises, a tooth cracked to the root and another fractured and loosened, a fat lip and an injured eye. His wounds were still visible when he spoke to the North Shore News Tuesday. The experience has rattled him. “I was just shocked,” said Andrews. “I couldn’t believe it. . . . What would cause someone to be so violent to a total stranger? So much anger — especially in a crowded space.” The victim would like to see security upgrades that might prevent others from going through the same thing. For one thing, TransLink could install more cameras, he said. “They said there were no cameras on the bus,” said Andrews. “I know there are some on a few, but there should be cameras on neWs photo cindy Goodman all the buses.” In fact, that may soon change, said Ken Hardie, a spokesman steven andrews, 27, shows his broken teeth after being assaulted while riding for TransLink.

Throughout the TransLink system there have been 535. “History tells us that the presence of a video camera may not prevent some things At the end of the day, there is no way absolutely to ensure safety at all times, said from happening,” said Hardie. “But the evidence they gather can be helpful in Hardie. tracking down the people responsible.” “People being people, there’s no ironclad guarantee that someone isn’t going to The authority has other security measures in place, he added.

Former WV gang member jailed for gun offences

Jane Seyd

a former red Scorpions gang member with a violent criminal past has been sent to jail for three years by a Supreme court judge after pleading guilty to three gun offences.

Konaam Shirzad, 28, was arrested June 10 after two West Vancouver police officers made a stop at his home just after 9 p.m. to check that he was obeying a court-ordered curfew. When Shirzad returned less than an hour later, a search of his vehicle turned up a loaded P-90 Ruger handgun and a retractable baton. Shirzad was sentenced after pleading guilty to

possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, being in a vehicle with a firearm and breaching a court-ordered lifetime firearms ban. Shirzad’s criminal record includes trying to murder his former best friend when he was 16 by stabbing him twice in the back with a large butcher knife outside North Vancouver’s Park & Tilford movie theatre. He was convicted of attempted murder and given two years in jail for that after being raised to adult court. He was also convicted of assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon for beating a teenager with a set of brass knuckles outside Argyle high school in 2003. Shirzad later decided to get back at one of the

witnesses who testified against him in that trial by organizing a drive-by shooting of the teen’s North Vancouver home from inside of jail. Days later, witnesses in a Lynn Valley neighbourhood heard gunshots and saw a man crouched in front of a house holding a gun in both hands and firing through the front window. But the shooters got the wrong house, and narrowly avoided hitting two residents who Shirzad had never met with bullets from either a .357 magnum or a .38 special. Shirzad will actually serve just under two years and eight months of his sentence, after the judge gave him credit for time already spent in custody. He was also handed another lifetime firearms ban.

a kitten.” In the end, the cat was lucky, he said. The projectile hit its torso, penetrating the skin and coming to rest against a rib. Had the pellet struck an inch or two higher, the outcome could have been very different. “If it got hit in the head it would be dead right now,” said Steward. Pellets often break up on impact, he added. Had the wound gone untreated, it’s possible the cat could have suffered lead poisoning. The family reported the incident to the North Vancouver RCMP. Investigators suspect the culprit may well have been a child. Steward noted that the timing of the attack — between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. on a weekday — and the nature of the weapon — likely a compressed-air pistol — also back up that theory. If that’s the case, the police would like to find the shooter to talk to them more than anything. “We’d certainly like to intervene,” said Cpl. Peter DeVries, a spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. “We’d like to do some education about appropriate behaviour and appropriate use and possession of things like pellet guns.” Police are also using the incident to remind the public to take extra care with their pets as Halloween approaches, said DeVries. “Halloween is typically a time when we have a spike in reports of abuse to animals,” he said. “People, if at all possible, (should) keep their pets indoors at night.” For his part, Steward hopes the story helps raise awareness. “We’re not expecting to get any results, any accountability,” he said. “But it’s a good thing just to get out there in the public and let parents think about what could happen with their firearms when they’re not home.” It’s unclear what can be done about the issue, however, beyond reminding parents to talk to their children, he said. Discharging firearms — pellet guns included — is already illegal in the City of North Vancouver, and shooting at pets is covered by animal cruelty laws. “A lot of it is going to come from parents teaching kids right from wrong,” said Steward. Anyone with information about Monday’s incident is asked to contact the North Vancouver RCMP at 604985-1311.

Crown alleges Berry Police worry filmed abuse of girls over case Former drama instructor pleads not guilty

Jane Seyd

FOrmer capilano college film studies instructor and acting coach michael Berry sexually abused eight children while making pornographic videos and photos of them over several decades, a crown prosecutor alleged this week in B.c. Supreme court.

Berry, 72, of West Vancouver is on trial facing 18 charges including child sexual offences and possession of pornography. He was arrested five years ago after police raided his Horseshoe Bay home, hauling away a moving-truck full of photos and videos. In opening statements before Justice Paul Williamson, Crown counsel Elliott Poll said material seized from Berry’s house included numerous images showing Berry having sex with girls. Most of Berry’s victims were between 10 and 13 at the time he sexually abused them, although one of the victims was under five. Some of the abuse dates back over 30 years, to the 1970s. In court Monday, Poll read details of some of the abuse to the judge, who is hearing the case without a jury. Poll said one girl was introduced to Berry by a friend

when she was 11 years old and had oral sex with him in exchange for cigarettes, food, money and alcohol. Another girl met Berry at a public swimming pool during the summer in the 1970s. She said she spent a lot of time with Berry after he befriended her family, and he became a key figure in her life. She told police about eight or nine incidents where Berry touched her sexually over a two-year period. “He would say, ‘This is OK. Just relax,’” said Poll. The girl also recalled times when Berry was supposed to be looking after her when he would come into her bedroom and masturbate. Another girl was only six or seven years old when she was introduced to Berry. Poll said she remembers watching pornography, smoking and drinking at Berry’s house. In some cases, Berry would film girls having oral sex together or would coach them to masturbate him. Poll said sometimes he would give them $5. Many of the videos seized show the sexual abuse described, said Poll, including footage that shows Berry having sexual intercourse with a child. One of the videos showed an adult male hand sexually touching a girl who was only three or four years old while she was asleep. Berry’s activities first came to police attention after an American investigation into child pornography turned up a number of online purchases from Canada. Those were traced back to Berry’s Internet service provider and his

online account. Poll said after police raided Berry’s home and took away a truckload of photos and videos Berry gave two statements to police, admitting to both sexually abusing the girls and creating pornography while he did so. In court this week, however, Berry — now 72 — has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Berry’s lawyer Ray Enright is arguing that none of the material seized in the raid on Berry’s house should be considered as evidence because police violated Berry’s rights in obtaining and executing the search warrant. The lawyer is also arguing to have much of what Berry said to police tossed out on the grounds he was denied proper access to a lawyer and was compelled to incriminate himself. The first part of the trial is now taking place in a voir dire — a trial within a trial — to determine what evidence can be considered by the judge during the trial.

The object was found abandoned in what police describe as an “unusual” spot on a bus near the McDonald’s restaurant at Park Royal shopping centre just before noon. TransLink staff deemed the

Judge Carol Baird Ellan agreed Oct. 4 to dismiss the charge against Moore. Outside the court, Harding said he’s been involved in thousands of drunk driving investigations during his police career but added, “I’ve never seen anyone who had the gall to go into court and say Botox was their defence.” “The absurdity is hard to fathom,” he said, adding Moore’s face didn’t appear to be frozen into a particular expression when he arrested her. “If you can speak, you can exhale some kind of air from your mouth,” he said. Harding said despite the judge’s warning that the case shouldn’t be seen as setting a precedent, he’s concerned the case could open up a whole new set of defences for drunk drivers who try to get off on technicalities.

The force kept foot and vehicle traffic out of the area until an explosives disposal team and a bomb dog arrived to examine the package. When it turned out the case was empty, police took down the blockade, and traffic went back to normal. — James Weldon

report published this week puts in numerical terms an ugly truth that has gone unaddressed in British columbia for decades: Our province is failing aboriginal youth. Growing up in B.c., a study published monday by the provincial health officer and a children and youth watchdog, is largely good news. in general, our youth are fit and happy and enjoy good prospects of success later in life. But the picture is decidedly darker for young people in three particular groups: those living in poverty, those in government care, and those identifying themselves as First nations. Status indian youth, according to the report, are twice as likely to be exposed to substance use in the womb, are at significantly higher risk of low

birth weight, are “dramatically” more likely to be placed in government care, have an elevated risk of suicide and face a slew of other challenges that other young people simply don’t. the historical roots of this divide have been discussed at length. the fact it persists in 2010 is shocking. Our government must address this issue with the same urgency that it does other challenges — the Olympics, or the financial crisis. B.c. must sit down with the federal government and First nations to draw up a clear, cohesive plan to eliminate the inequalities facing aboriginal youth and to dedicate the resources necessary to implement it. canada is an advanced, wealthy industrialized nation. to imagine that we are powerless in the face of this ongoing crisis is outrageous.


‘Ugly’ roundabout plantings balance interests

dear editor: I would like to ask the City of North Vancouver to change their planning of the garden/greenery in the traffic circle/roundabout at Chesterfield Avenue and Keith Road. For probably three years, the plants inside the circle have been a “sore in my eye.” Everything there is ugly and dry for more than five months of year, tall so that drivers cannot see through, and unattractive and just not pleasant to look at. Could the city change the planting and put colourful flowers there? Just grass would better than what we have now. Why is it possible to have enjoyable flower combinations just a few blocks from this dry disaster? I am looking forward to next year and hope to see a simple and colourful piece of art.

drouGht tolerant planting by the city of north vancouver in the Keith/chesterfield roundabout and surrounds is an eyesore for some and eco-friendly for others.


city engineer Steve Ono responds: Public landscape design at this round-about is an important example of the many public interests that must be balanced if we are to achieve a sustainable, appealing community. In the initial landscape design for this roundabout, environmental interests were served through selection of drought tolerant, native plants requiring lower levels of maintenance, watering, replanting and nurturing. The environmental benefit is reflected in lower resource consumption and native planting in an urban environment. See Costly page 9

It’s not business, Carole, it’s just personal

Our two major provincial political parties seem to be starring in their own in-house production of Dumb and Dumber, and it is the new democrats who have taken top billing in recent days.

The NDP finds itself dealing with an expulsion, a resignation, a divided caucus, a leak of confidential documents and a fierce and personal internal debate over its leader’s abilities. All this is occurring as the party sails merrily along at the top of the polls, out-distancing the B.C. Liberals by a 2-1 margin among decided voters. Once again, B.C. politics is demonstrating its unique hold on strange and baffling behaviour by its politicians and its political parties. A constant narrative in B.C. politics for years was that a government or political party was always in the process of falling apart. The governments led by Bill Vander Zalm, Mike

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

Harcourt, Glen Clark and Ujjal Dosanjh eventually came apart at the seams, as did the B.C. Liberals under leader Gordon Wilson. We seem to be witnessing the same thing today, except it’s occurring on two fronts. As the ruling Liberals gloomily continue on as a largely despised government, it is the official Opposition that is now hogging the headlines by repeatedly shooting itself in its feet. What, exactly, is going on? Numerous theories abound, but I think it’s safe to say

the tensions and ideological differences that exist within the diehard membership of the NDP have finally created a very public fissure that shows no sign of healing. I wrote last week that party leader Carole James’ hold on her job was fairly safe as long one of her “A-team” MLAs did not break with her leadership. Well, one of them — Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Norm MacDonald — has done just that, by resigning his position as caucus chair. It’s important to note that MacDonald remains in caucus, and he insists he’s still very much part of the team. But his resignation (he felt James should have consulted the caucus, or at least him, before booting Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson out of caucus) was a shot at his increasingly beleaguered leader. Two NDP insiders (not attached to the current caucus) have offered an intriguing theory of why all this grief is happening now: Could all these machinations be a pre-emptive strike by the anti-James gang,

who feel it’s imperative to act now to force a showdown on her leadership, because waiting too long could actually cement her hold on the job? In recent weeks, James can point to several things that cast her in a good light. She spoke at a corporate fundraiser that oversold its target of 250 by almost 100 per cent (400 tickets were sold). She received glowing coverage in a special Globe and Mail section on powerful Canadian women leaders. And the latest poll pegs NDP support at 49 per cent, more than double the support for the B.C. Liberals. But there are those within the NDP who resent her attempt to modernize the party, expand its support, and to push it more toward the political middle, and away from the left and organized labour (think Tony Blair in Britain). For some of these people, their rigid ideology will never allow them to embrace James’ non-ideological approach. They would rather lose an election, than compromise their ideological positions.


Meanwhile, James’ troubles have given Premier Gordon Campbell and his government a brief respite from the pounding they’ve been getting over various issues, notably the HST. But Campbell must face his own leadership vote at the party convention next month, and it is by no means a sure thing that he’ll score a high number. However, unlike the New Democrats, the B.C. Liberals are sticking together. Other than Blair Lekstrom quitting the caucus back in June over the HST, there has been no sign of public discontent from

the caucus ranks. The two parties’ marked difference when it comes to dealing with problems with leadership brings to mind that famous line from the Godfather movies: “It’s not personal. It’s just business.” That would seem to be the B.C. Liberals’ motto as they begin to deal with the leadership question. But the NDP seem to have turned that line around. For them, the attacks on James show their motto is: “It’s not business. It’s just personal.” Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

But is he really insisting that we should also have to allow “access” for every kind of machine someone chooses to bring into the mountains?

Norona can wag his finger at bad-weather riding, debunk habitat destruction, and suggest trails should not be built “everywhere,” etc. But the truth is Norona has long felt that the restrictions that get in the way of his ultimate adventure high, whether on a mountain bike, motor bike, snowmobile, etc., do not apply to him according to the rule-bending antics in past columns.

Even kids know littering is wrong

dear editor: I take great pride and pleasure being a resident of the North Shore. One thing I think we can all agree on is the beauty of our surroundings here. Friday, Oct. 15, I was hiking on one of my favourite trails, St. Georges Trail, on Mount Fromme. I exited the trail and came out at the very top of St. Mary’s Avenue where the power line trail crosses the road. I was surprised and upset to see that a pile of garbage had appeared since my previous visit only the day before. Someone had emptied a full truckload of garbage onto the ground right underneath a sign that says No Dumping! I wondered, did someone come by here and read that sign and think: “Mental note: Free dump.” There were bags of garbage, plastic lawn chairs and even an old coffee maker among the rubbish. I think this is one of the most selfish things someone could do to the other people in his/her community. In an effort to save about $20 in dump fees, this person will have likely cost the community more than $200 by the time district workers deal with it. In the meantime the garbage pollutes the stream which runs right through it, looks disgusting, reflects poorly on the residents of the area and causes a health and safety hazard. Even kindergarten children know that littering is wrong, but it takes a real idiot to do something like this. Shame on you. dave martin north vancouver (Editor: The District of North Vancouver has cleaned up the illegal dump.)

this pile of garbage, obviously dumped from a truck, lies beneath a sign at the top of st. Mary’s avenue in north vancouver that says no dumping.

help to eliminate oceans of plastic in our waste dear editor: Two articles in the North Shore News inspired me to do something about our plastic bags and packaging previously sent to the landfill. Reducing the Waste Stream on Sept. 1, informed me that I could recycle my plastic waste at the parking lot of Presentation House on the third Saturday of every month. The Plastic Pacific on Sept. 5, told me about an island of plastic waste the size

of Alberta swirling around the mid-Pacific. Plastic trash in the ocean as far as the eye can, and cannot see. This really is an insane disposal habit we must stop! After reading these stories, our family of two, a dog and occasional guests decided to save and keep track of the plastic bags and packaging that flows through our kitchen every month. Although our study is not very scientific it proved to us that we disposed of about 100

Logan: Buy King or Queen Bed & Get 2 Nightstands FREE! 1555 United Boulevard, Coquitlam, BC 604.523.0100

plastic bags and miscellaneous packaging per month. I’ve never been very good at math, but based on my conservative household calculations British Columbians send approximately 150 million plastic bags to the landfill every month. In any event I’m shocked at my complicity in this plastic waste-fest and I’m trying to do something about it. Please join us. Jim cathcart and family, north vancouver

Costly floral displays at key locations

From page 6 Lower maintenance needs at this roundabout, in turn enables the city to shift its focus to more resource-intensive floral and horticultural seasonal displays such as those nearby at Keith Road and Lonsdale Avenue in Victoria Park. Selectively prioritizing and focussing more intense floral displays at key locations helps keep operating costs down, while spreading appeal city-wide through high profile places. It is also important to keep in mind that in a diverse community, some people prefer formal floral displays while some people prefer natural landscapes; we seek to balance both. The roundabout performs a key traffic management function, and clear lines of sight are critical. Accordingly, our transportation engineers have developed guidelines for lines of sight and clearances which city landscapers follow for plant selection and maintenance. Through this integration of professional disciplines, the landscape design and plant selection has been modified in the past, and will continue to be reviewed during the seasonal landscape maintenance cycle.

INqUIrINg rEPOrTEr north vancouver rcMP were full of praise for members of the public this week after passersby thwarted an alleged jewelry store robbery at capilano Mall. several shoppers chased one of the suspects through the mall before another brought him to the ground. the crowd held the man down until police arrived. Much of the stolen jewelry has since been recovered. hearing a story like this, it’s easy enough to imagine playing the hero ourselves, but confronted with the situation in real life, how many of us would actually step in to help? — James Weldon

natasha chesson north vancouver It all depends on the severity of the crime. If there’s a gun . . . I’m not going to go for it. But if it’s something like that where I can intervene, then I’d love to take action. It’s the whole principle.

if you saw a crime underway, would you intervene?

John Wood north vancouver Depends what it was. . . . I don’t think I’d chase him down. But if I saw some guy beating on a kid or a woman or something then I’d step in.

liam O’callahan north vancouver If I knew that I wouldn’t put myself in danger, and I was able to help I would. But if he looked threatening and he had a knife I’d maybe call the cops.

Park Royal’s pedestrian overpass could go

Ground-level intersection to be discussed with Squamish nation niamh Scallan

Park royal Shopping centre’s plan to demolish a pedestrian overpass and construct a new intersection on marine drive was cautiously approved by district of West vancouver councillors monday night.

“From a pedestrian point of view, I think it just makes a lot of sense,” said Coun. Shannon Walker, supporting the $2-million, Park Royal-funded proposal. Council voted 5-2 to approve the proposal to remove a pedestrian overpass connecting the centre’s north and south malls in favour of a new signalized, ground-level intersection. Councillors in favour of the proposal also called for consultation with the Squamish Nation before proceeding. “I am supporting this proposal,” Mayor Pam Goldsmith-Jones said, “but just as we work with North Vancouver, the provincial government and the federal government, we must work with the Squamish Nation.”

According to the District of West Vancouver report, the proposed signalized intersection would provide a safer, more accessible crossing for pedestrians, better traffic flow in the area and improved access to the malls for emergency vehicles and transit busses But Couns. Bill Soprovich and Michael Lewis opposed Park Royal’s proposal, calling for more consultation and information on the project. “I’m feeling a bit managed this evening,” Lewis said after hearing presentations from Park Royal-hired transportation, landscaping and planning consultants. “There is a lack of information about the See Residents page 11

project . . . there are some concerns that haven’t been addressed.” For Soprovich, the proposed construction plan failed to represent the interests and needs of the West Vancouver community. “This intersection is the tip of the iceberg,” he said. “There is no public process in terms of what will happen. I’m asking that we look at this in the larger context . . . look at the seriousness of this with the Squamish Nation.” But for other councillors and numerous West Vancouver residents who spoke at Monday night’s council meeting, Park Royal’s proposal to remove the pedestrian overpass for a ground-level intersection is long overdue. “We are supportive of the intersection . . . we would really like to see this happen,” said Sany Zein, TransLink’s manager of road

and infrastructure planning, during the public comment period. “There are significant benefits for the movement of our busses at the intersection from both an efficiency and a safety perspective.” For Dorothy Pearson, a senior resident living at Park Royal Towers on Marine Drive, the proposed intersection would allow her and other elderly residents to cross the street more safely. “The present overpass is not pedestrian-friendly for those with a mobility challenge. It’s not fit to use,” she said. “The residents of Park Royal Towers will be pleased to have a crosswalk to the Village. We have been advocating for one for years.” District of West Vancouver councillors will meet with the Squamish Nation in the coming weeks to discuss Park Royal’s impending development plans for the Marine Drive intersection.

the shanbehzadeh ensemble celebrate the rhythmically rich music and dance traditions of the southern iranian province of Boushehr at capilano university oct. 27 in a live performance with local improvisers the françois houle trio.


Rhythm nation

n caravan World rhythms presents the Shanbehzadeh ensemble with special guest the François houle trio, Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m., at the capilano Performing arts theatre. tickets: $32/$25 through www.

Erin McPhee

FrançOiS houle has made a career out of musical exploration.

An accomplished clarinetist, composer and improviser, he refuses to stick to one genre, his intense passion for jazz, classical, new and world music resulting in one incredible sonic experience after another. “The clarinet has a pretty privileged position in a lot of different traditions,” he says. “I’ve always been fascinated at why that was and by exploring these different genres because I can already play the clarinet so it’s just a matter of getting immersed in a style or a way of thinking about music that’s a little different from your own. I gravitate towards these things naturally because of that shared language with the instrument.” Houle’s resourcefulness and versatility means he’s in high demand. For example, today, he’s travelling to Germany for a Sunday performance in Düsseldorf and in November, he’ll be part of a recording session with rocker Matthew Good. North Shore audiences can catch the in-demand musician, who got his start at a young age growing up in Montreal, Que. and now calls Vancouver home, when he takes the stage as part of a trio

performing with the Shanbehzadeh Ensemble at Capilano University on Wednesday. The ensemble, led by Saeid Shanbehzadeh, celebrates the rich musical and dance traditions of Boushehr, a southern Iranian province, by bringing them to the stage. The province’s music, due to its location along ancient Persian Gulf trade routes, has been influenced by Persian, Arab, African and Indian music. The ensemble, whose other members include Saeid’s son Naghib and Habib Meftah Boushehri, plays a number of traditional instruments including the neyanban (Iranian bagpipe), neyjoti (double flute), dammam (dual-faced percussion), zarbetempo (percussion), senj (cymbals) and boogh (goat horn). Houle is excited about being part of the performance, which is presented by Caravan World Rhythms, as he has some experience with the genre, having previously collaborated with Persian and Middle-Eastern inspired groups Safa and Haram. This will be the first time he’s worked with Saeid. “Meeting new musicians from other places is always an exciting thing, just to see where you can find common ground and explore and get into their ways of looking at things musically and try to and match that or throw some of your own in there,” he says. “It’s always a challenge and it’s exhilarating when it works and most of the time it does. Also, the music that I’ve heard of them, on Youtube and they sent me some MP3s, it’s very rhythmicdriven, it’s dance-like music, it’s ceremonial music and I usually really like that stuff because there’s an energy that comes out of it that really carries you. If you tap into that energy there’s always some good things that will come out of it. It’s a very constructive space to be in.”

Joining Houle for the performance is Tommy Babin on bass and Elliot Polsky on percussion. His trio will open the show with a set that includes the performance of one of his original compositions and they’ll join the members of the Shanbehzadeh Ensemble for their final numbers. Another project Houle is excited about is an upcoming CBC Radio live performance with acclaimed actress Joy Coghill. Coghill will perform a one-woman play version of “Unless the Eye Catch Fire,” a poem by P.K. Page and Houle will provide the music, which he composed. Coghill created the piece a number of years ago with a flute player. Interested in remounting it, she contacted Houle after watching one of his performances and they premiered it at the 2009 Vancouver International Writers and Readers Festival. The air date of the CBC Radio version will be determined in the coming months. While his performance, writing, recording and teaching schedule remains diverse, Houle wouldn’t have it any other way. “I think you need a varied palate of activities just to keep things fresh and challenging,” he says. “I think if you did the same musical thing day in and day out it would take a very special personality to be able to keep things moving. It keeps me on my toes. It’s when I get a little complacent about my abilities and the things that I do, something comes along that challenges you and surprises you and you have to be ready for these situations. When you get a little bit of that pretty much on a daily basis you can only feel that you’re making progress, or that you’re learning new things all the time and I think that’s vital.”

an excellent cast (including antonio Banderas, naomi Watts and freida Pinto) are wasted in Woody allen’s You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.

Latest Woody not up to par

n You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger. Written and directed by Woody allen. Starring naomi Watts, antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, anthony hopkins, Freida Pinto, Gemma Jones and lucy Punch. rating: 6 (out of 10) Prolific director Woody Allen has made at least a film per year since Annie Hall came out, in 1977. And his films are famous for being populated by one or more sadsack, neurotic, and selfeffacing characters. But in his new film, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger, the director puts it out there from the getgo, paraphrasing the Bard himself: “life is full of sound and fury but in the end, signifies nothing.” The first character to embrace Macbeth’s defeatist mantra is Alfie. Suddenly fearful of his own mortality, Alfie (Anthony Hopkins) leaves his wife Helena (Gemma Jones) and goes on a youthful bender, which leads to both a fake tan and to a dubious relationship with a sexy call girl (Lucy Punch). Helena, meanwhile, looks for solace in the spirits (thus the mystical, titular title) and the ha-penny celestial guidance of fake seer Cristal (Pauline Collins). Sally (Naomi Watts), Helena’s daughter, doesn’t have the time to offer her mother sensible advice: she also has a marriage on the brink of collapse. After a critically acclaimed first novel, her husband Roy (Josh Brolin)

Reel Life

Julie Crawford has spent his recent years with emasculating writer’s block, and is eyeing a lovely neighbour (Freida Pinto), while Sally is filled with regret about not sealing the deal with her boss (Antonio Banderas). Hoping to rebound, Helena pins her hopes on Jonathan (Roger Ashton Griffiths), a not-quite-dark stranger who owns an occult bookshop. But in order to proceed with the relationship he must get the blessing of his dead wife via séance. If it’s all sounding like a daytime soap plotline, just wait until the accidents, misdemeanors and lastminute marriage jiltings. But for all the drama, the proceedings are rather dull: we’ve heard it all before, see glimpses of it in our own lives, and the film therefore requires someone less annoying than Roy — stop whining, already! — to pique our interest and elevate the themes to relevance. Having said that, it’s difficult to go too far off

course with an ensemble cast this talented. Jones is the bright spark, playing the kookiest character and getting the choicest lines. On Jonathan: “He left me for another woman, a dead one. They’re often the stiffest competition.” And Punch (recently in Dinner For Schmucks), playing the brassy gold-digger, injects life whenever she’s onscreen, which is too little. Moments like these provide glimpses of what the film could have been. Is it London’s grey pall that makes these characters such downers? Note to Allen: witty whining is allowed; moaning for its own sake is cinematic buzz kill.

n new on dvd Director Catherine Holofcener hits a nerve, tapping into upper-middleclass entitlement guilt with her excellent film, Please Give. Kate (Catherine Keener) runs a high-end vintage furniture shop with her husband Alex (Oliver Platt), but is conflicted about the fact that she may be ripping off the children of dead people, then making a huge profit. Meanwhile, she refuses to buy her teenaged daughter (Sarah Steele) $200 jeans. The rest of our sympathies extend to Rebecca (Rebecca Hall), an awkward, soulful character looking for meaning beyond the orbit of her cranky grandmother and her venomous older sister Mary (Amanda Peet). Everyone is flawed here, but Holofcener

(Lovely and Amazing, Friends With Money) makes us love them all. Special features include a comprehensive behind-the-scenes extra which delves into the symbiotic relationship between Keener and the director. There are also Q&A snippets with Holofcener and outtakes.

The Girl Who Played With Fire was released hot on the heels of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and set to coincide with the theatrical release of The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest, out last week. The second in Stieg Larsson’s phenomenally successful trilogy opens with flashbacks to the first film, a grim recap of some of the violence that has shaped the life of Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace). In this film Lisbeth has been framed for a double homicide, and it’s up to investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) to prove his former lover’s innocence. The film is faster-paced but deprived of much interaction between the two leads. Overall the pic feels slightly less accomplished than its predecessor, due to its necessary transitional flavour: The Girl Who Played With Fire is most definitely a steppingstone film between the first and upcoming instalments, so be sure to see them in order. Special features: raw cast and crew interviews, fight dissection between Roberto and the brick house known as Niedermann, and a preview of the third instalment.

n Le amiche (director: michelangelo antonioni. italy 1955) cast: eleonora rossi drago, valentina cortese, yvonne bringsFurneaux, it home on WGabriele Ferzetti. Pacific cinémathèque screening newly restored 35mm print this weekend. rating: 8 (out of 10) Michelangelo Antonioni’s Le amiche (The Girlfriends) looks deceptively traditional today but back when the film was made it represented a radical departure for the young Italian director. In what was then his fourth feature, Antonioni began to experiment with the narrative structure and visual style that would come to define his work of the early ’60s — L’avventura (1960), La notte (1961), L’eclisse (1962) and Il deserto rosso (1964). His penchant for long takes, moving cameras and elliptical storytelling is all apparent here although the elements are introduced subtly within the framework of a conventional melodrama that would have made Douglas Sirk proud. The film, an adaptation of Cesare Pavese’s 1949 novella, Tra

donne sole, was shot on location in Turin and focuses on a group of young women and their social milieu. The film’s narrator, Clelia (Eleonora Rossi Drago), returns home from Rome to open a fashion salon and gets caught up with the circle of friends after one of them attempts suicide. That act sets off a chain of events that affects all the characters in one way or another. The story’s focus on the women is reminiscent of Mizoguchi’s feminist themes and highly unusual for the period. When it was initially released Le amiche did not receive wide distribution outside Europe and the excellent ensemble cast features actors who were relatively unknown to North American audiences. Rossi Drago appeared regularly in Italian cinema in the ’50s and ’60s but her work was rarely seen here. Gabriele Ferzetti would go on to play a major role in Antonioni’s next phase as Sandro in L’avventura but he takes a back seat here to the core group of women actors who rarely leave the screen. The film looks beautiful thanks to cinematographer Gianni di Venanzo who died in a car accident in Rome in 1966. He joined Antonioni’s crew for Le amiche and stayed with him through the string of early ’60s masterworks.

Photos capture duo under northern lights Terry Peters n The White Stripes — Under Great White Northern Lights, photographs by autumn de Wilde, chronicle Books, 208 pages, $49.95. In 2007 the White Stripes embarked on a tour unlike any other. This superstar duo left the comfort of luxury travel behind to visit every province and territory in Canada. They played concert

halls and gymnasiums. They performed impromptu gigs for fans in bowling alleys and small clubs, right up to the final stop in Nova Scotia where they celebrated the band’s 10th anniversary. The tour, free of the normal media blitz, was well documented and from it came a live album, a movie and a special box set package which included this book that has now been released on its own. Photographer Autumn de Wilde has made the most of her access and captured not just great performance shots but also the backstage moments and those times when the landscape roars louder than any guitar in the vastness of the north. This book will be a necessary addition to the collection of any dedicated fan. n Werewolves by alice carr, chronicle Books, $22.95. A late night walk home from a party leaves a brother and sister bruised and bleeding after a pack of wild dogs attack them in the forest. Although the wounds heal quickly they provoke unexpected feelings in the siblings. Alice begins a journal to try to understand what is happening to her. Through her notes and drawings we witness the transformation into something that seems impossible. The drawings show Alice and her brother, Mark turning into Werewolves and their discovery of others like themselves. They soon learn that there are people hunting them and Alice is caught between longing and repulsion of what she has become. Well rendered illustrations and an engaging perspective make this an entertaining look at a longstanding horror genre.

Sam White had dreams of Hollywood success but has found himself living back in his native city of Portland working as night security guard. His consolation is a wife and daughter he loves dearly and the occasional acting job to barely nurture the flame inside him. Sam’s world is torn apart when he finds his street barricaded and firemen battling the blaze that has consumed his home. When Sam finds out his wife and daughter were kidnapped before the fire began he

As Vancouver riders and drivers get used to the new bike lanes, the man at the centre of the debate, Mayor Gregor Roberston, will appear at the Vancouver Playhouse as part of panel discussion on the right path forward for urban biking. Three others will be joining Robertson on stage: music legend David Byrne, whose new

book Bicycle Diaries recounts his experiences biking in the great cities of the world; urban planning consultant Erick Villagomez and Momentum magazine co-publisher Amy Walker. “What I’m going to talk about is how cycling changes your life,” Walker says. “I’ve worked on cycling for 10 years and I’ve been steeped in the culture more than most people. Cycling has had a very positive impact on my life and it’s something that I want to share — a lot. I’ve been able to be physical and enjoy my city. I’ve met a lot of new people and I haven’t been stuck inside a metal box stuck in traffic.” Walker, who has proudly pedaled three kilometres to work and back for 22 years, wasn’t surprised at the heated debate that preceded the new bike lanes in downtown Vancouver. “It’s natural. When there are changes happening, people need to talk about them. That’s healthy,” she says. “I also think it’s fear. Generally people are afraid on the road because it’s a high-stress situation.

drive around a bicyclist is sometimes alarmed and surprised by someone they don’t expect to be there. That’s why I feel the bike lanes are a good idea. It gives the cyclist a place to be on the road and it’s doesn’t force them to be in the same space as the drivers.” Better fences could mean better neighbours, Walker argued, and life may actually be easier for drivers once they’ve gotten used to the lanes. Like Robertson, Walker hopes to see more of them. “Vancouver gets really good reviews. I’ve heard a lot of people who visit the city say it’s wonderful, especially compared to other places. A lot of cities in North America are really not designed to be liveable and walkable and bikeable. By comparison Vancouver is very good. I think we can certainly make it better but we’re on the right track. The next step is to complete the routes in the downtown system. When you’re using bikes for transportation you have to make the network complete and have it go to practical places. The Seawall is a beautiful bike ride, but it doesn’t get you anywhere you need to go.” Walker believes in investing not just in physical infrastructure, but also in education for road users. “Cycling is something that people think they should just get on a bike and do,” she

says. “But I think we need to educate both cyclists and drivers about how to ride safely and courteously. There are skills that really do help. If we were to invest in raising our education level of road users I think that would be money well spent. In Europe, they teach kids bike skills at elementary school and the kids get an exam from the police. It’s a really good system because they take it serious and they learn from someone they trust.” The Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition offers a similar course called Streetwise, a program Walker would like to see expanded. Getting more commuters onto the saddle outside of the downtown core is a bit more complicated. There’s no quick fix for the hills of the North Shore or the sprawl south of the Fraser River. “I really think that’s a burb-by-burb question,” Walker says. “In some of them we’re getting some progress. Richmond and New Westminster have been connecting their cities well. It’s not easy in all places. Sometimes in the suburbs you have to do some radical bike planning and cut a trail right through the centre.” The discussion, Cities, Bicycles and the Future of Getting Around, is at the Vancouver Playhouse on Sunday, Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25, available at 604-990-78-7810 or at A free bike valet service will be available.

Almay tools an eye opener

n almay intense i-color Powder Shadow and One coat dial up mascara

When it comes to beauty campaigns we all have our weaknesses.

ashley child wears the Knockout by Kenneth Poole available at Blush Bridal and cocktail Wear in ambleside. the dress will be featured at the crème de la crème grand wedding showcase, saturday, oct. 30 at the four seasons hotel downtown. this year’s theme is amore and will feature a haute couture fashion show. tickets:

Whether it’s Covergirl’s itgirl playfulness or Clinique’s sterile simplicity, we trust the ones we love. Among mine are the campaigns produced by Almay. There’s something about the beauty of longtime spokesmodel Elaine Irwin-Mellencamp that piques my interest time and time again. New campaigns by the major cosmetic retailer feature actress Kate Hudson, even more dangerous for my trips to the drug store. A new product wielded by Almay’s ladies is the company’s One Coat Dial Up Mascara. The tube gives wearers three volume options — full to fullest. It’s easy to use and prevents the ol’ wipe-the-wand-on-a-Kleenex routine required for times when a lighter look is desired. Also in its arsenal is Almay’s line of Intense I-Color Powder Shadow, a sort of paint-bynumbers kit designed to complement and bring out natural eye colour. For the non-skilled

makeup artist like myself, these three-shade compacts with instructions about what to put where have always spoken to me. Add to that the fact that sometimes they’re packaged with matching eyeliner and mascara and I’m an even happier camper. Whether you’re a blue-, ha-

zel-, green- or brown-eyed girl, Almay’s got a compact for you and a couple of colour palette options to boot. Almay’s makeup is hypoallergenic and dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested and, as a chronic contact lens wearer, I thank them. Their products are widely

available, including at Shoppers Drug Mart, where you can pick up their One Coat Dial Up Mascara for $11.99 or their Intense I-Color Powder Shadow for $12.49. Combination packs, with a trio of shadows, eyeliner and mascara are also available at some stores. — Erin McPhee

Curtain Call

I wasn’t — although there Martin Millerchip were moments in the show that had brought tears to my eyes — and it’s taken me a few days to try and figure out why I wasn’t quite as enthused. Initially I thought the answer might be as simple as she’s a woman and I’m not — and I think that’s a large part of it. But beyond that, my wife is stridently anti-war, and this play is as effective and important as any other I know in underlining the message that war maims and wastes indiscriminately. Finally, my wife lives in the here and now, responding to life by how she feels about it. I, on the other hand, am far more reserved (which allows me to be objective about such things as pacing and transitions). And since Heather Raffo’s script is based, in large part, on the feelings of other women and does a credible job of recreating them, when you add it all up, a woman should probably be reviewing this production. Raffo is part Iraqi, a daughter of U.S. immigrants and was 20 at the time of the first Gulf War. She visited Iraq for only the second time in her life in 1993 in an attempt to understand both what had See Powerful page 36

Superchunk pick up where they left off n Superchunk, Biltmore cabaret, Wednesday, Oct. 13.

brian Pascual Contributing Writer

even though they’d actually never officially broken up, chapel hill, north carolina’s Superchunk had been on enough of a hiatus over the past 10 years that their show at the Biltmore cabaret felt every bit like a reunion tour.


neWs photo sprout

even though it’s been nine long years between albums superchunk’s show at the Biltmore showed there is no danger of the seminal indie rockers fading away any time soon.

The seminal indie rockers went nine long years between the release of 2001’s Here’s To Shutting Up and this year’s glorious return to form, Majesty Shredding; which would explain the definite mix of early to mid-30s and early 20s crowd. Along the way Superchunk have picked up fans old enough to remember putting songs on a mixed tape and fans so young the only mix they’ve ever made has been on a CD. Regardless, everyone at the show was ready to be blown away by indie royalty. Openers Telekinesis themselves alluded to the unquestionable bombast of Superchunk’s impending set, warning the audience that their collective faces were going to be absolutely shredded by the headliners. A corny but also very matter-of-fact pun on the title of Superchunk’s said release from earlier this year that had the crowd buzzing even more. Telekinesis proved to be an excellent choice as openers, as their exuberant and energetic power pop is easily traced back to Superchunk, among others. The undeniable sounds of Weezer’s crunchy guitar riffs combined with the smart and clean pop of Squeeze and Spoon hopefully made Telekinesis some new fans tonight. Playing as a trio (guitar, bass, drums) with front man/ mastermind, Michael Benjamin Lerner, getting his Genesis-era Phil Collins mojo on by playing drums while taking lead vocals, they were so tight they easily had people dancing and bopping See Band page 34

Wildlife photographer to speak in NV lynn Canyon centre to host event Saturday benjamin alldritt

acclaimed wildlife photographer and filmmaker ian mcallister will be at the lynn canyon ecology centre tomorrow, Oct. 23, to present two new books and share some stunning, brand-new images of the Great Bear rainforest. “We realized we’d never done any youth books and, amazingly, there haven’t been any made-in-B.C. books for a younger audience on this subject,” said McAllister, a member of the Pacific Wild advocacy group. McAllister teamed up with Vancouver Sun writer Nicholas Read to create a pair of books aimed at readers eight to 15 years old, The Salmon Bears and The Sea Wolves. Both books are packed with accessible information on the complex relationships between

salmon, bear, wolf, bird and rainforest. Each page contains examples of McAllister’s spectacular photography. “It certainly takes a lot of patience,” McAllister said. “It’s a lot of waiting around in the rain and a lot of slogging up and down salmon rivers. Bears

Schools invited to go solar B.c. schools are invited to apply for funding for the installation of Photovoltaic (Pv) systems on school buildings under the Solar Schools project of the SolarBc program. According to a written statement, funding for the project has been provided by the Province of British Columbia through SolarBC. Ten schools across the province will be selected and SolarBC funding

for 90 per cent of the PV system cost and installation will be awarded to a maximum of $20,000 per school. The installation of PV systems on schools demonstrates leadership in reducing hydro-electricity and energy costs. It also encourages students and their families to investigate renewable energy solutions in their homes. In addition, the installation provides a teaching opportunity about the possibilities for renewable energy usage

and employment opportunities in the renewable energy sector. Schools chosen to participate in this program are required to monitor energy output from the PV system, use SolarBC lesson plans, set up displays that provide information on energy savings and greenhouse gas reductions, and demonstrate their PV system to nearby schools, students’ families and the wider community. For more information, visit www.

Patience yields telling photos of predators From page 30

McAllister’s persistence paid off. He has captured images of both predators at all ages and in all kinds of circumstances: hunting, eating, fighting, swimming and playing. “To be able to travel in a river system that has spirit bears and black bears and grizzlies and wolves and so many other species, to see all those in a single day of hiking is amazing. It’s amazing to people who live here and it should be amazing for Canadians who care about our environment,” he said. Concern for the future of the Great Bear Rainforest is the driving force behind Read and McAllister’s projects. The books pull no punches in their opposition to the proposed oil pipeline linking the Alberta tarsands with the northern port of Kitimat. “There certainly are some significant threats facing them and I think that it’s important to not only learn about the ecology but also to educate youth so that they care about these animals and their habitats so more people take action to protect it,” McAllister said. Visitors at the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre will hear McAllister describe his travels through the rainforest, the most biologically diverse and productive ecosystem on the planet. He will also share some brand-new images and footage shot earlier this year. “We’ve just had an amazing season this year and we have new footage of bears, salmon, whales, spirit bears and lots of new images. People will get a first-hand look at the wildlife richness in the Great Bear Rainforest.” Howls and Growls will be held at the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre, 3663 Park Rd., North Vancouver, Oct. 23 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. For more information on Pacific Wild, visit www.pacificwild. org.

Band burned through set

From page 29

along. And really, major props to any musician who can pound that heavy on a kit while still singing lead! Great stage banter as well (notably a bit about the sushi the band ate earlier in the day) endeared Telekinesis even more to the audience. And just when it seemed they might only have one speed (fast!) the band dialed it down for an acoustic interlude (including a completely-out-of-the-blue-but--awesome cover of Teenage Fanclub’s “The Concept”) with Lerner left onstage by himself for a few songs. If you haven’t already, check out Telekinesis’ self-titled debut full-length from last year. It’s one of those under-the-radar gems that shouldn’t be, and their set tonight proved they’re even better live. Taking the stage with guitarist, Jim Wilbur, announcing their first song was one they hadn’t played since 1996, the mighty Superchunk led off their night with the riff heavy “Green Flowers, Blue Fish” from 1995’s Here’s Where the Strings Come In. It was a telling sign as the band set the tone right from the beginning; yes, they have a new album out that they are touring, but it wasn’t going to stop them from leaning heavily on older material, as they fully know that after 10 years their diehards deserve to hear some favourites. Other oldies they dusted off and gave a new shine to: “Punch Me Harder” from 1991’s No Pocky For Kitty, which naturally started the first mosh pit of the night; “Watery Hands”

from 1997’s Indoor Living, “Hello Hawk” from 1999’s Come Pick Me Up, and “Driveway To Driveway” from 1994’s Foolish. Each was played with the kind of vigor and raw energy of vintage Superchunk (lead singer Mac McCaughan looks to be in such great shape he actually looks like he’s gotten younger), and the crowd responded in kind. Pogo-ing and moshing to every riff and beat they had the front area of the Biltmore looking like a Superchunk show circa ’93. Mac himself even remarked the show felt like they were playing a basement party. Not able to completely ignore their new record, Superchunk represented the righteously buzzing Majesty Shredding with “My Gap Feels Weird,” “Rosemarie,” “Crossed Wires,” (which nearly incited a full-on riot with the dancing it induced) and “Digging For Something.” New songs may have been blended with old ones and vice versa, but Superchunk showed they are still at home riffing hard on their guitars. And they proved they haven’t lost their uncanny ability to be ultra tight and focused while simultaneously being ramshackle and chaotic. Mac’s vocals also sound better than ever—his trademark schoolboy yelp still yearns and pleads perfectly with each lyric sung. Saving their best for the encore, Superchunk burned through supreme favourites “New Low” and “Slack Motherf_er,” the latter having its anthemic chorus belted out by a deliriously happy audience. Whether or not this is the last we see of Superchunk, judging by their performance and reception tonight their legacy is not only intact, it is in no danger of fading whatsoever.

Powerful play will have you feeling or thinking From page 25

happened and her heritage. She wrote 9 Parts of Desire based on a subsequent 10-years-worth of interviews with Iraqi women. Some of the nine characters presented — in this production by actor Valerie Buhagiar — are based on specific people, but all of their words are distillations of what Raffo absorbed in her quest. On a fractured set dominated by a beautiful set piece designed by Pam Johnson, we meet in turn: a Marsh Arab whose sense of humour remains, even if her homeland does not (Saddam drained the marshes as a punishment for the 1991 uprising against him); a doctor dealing with cancers and deformed babies because of the war’s use of depleted uranium; a Bedouin woman who at first appears to yearn for a man to love her, but really just wants the freedom to speak freely; a young girl who has not yet learned the lesson all Iraqis must learn in order to survive — “never to open their mouths, not even for the dentist”; Umm Gheda, a tour guide to the Amiriya bomb shelter in Baghdad that contains the vaporized remains of her family; a conflicted ex-pat in London, who escaped the U.S.-backed coup that put Saddam’s Ba’athist party in power; and a young woman in New York who receives a call of condolence from her Iraqi family after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 before watching newscasts in horror as her Baghdad neighbourhood burns. There is one other character — a professional mourner, I think — but I had trouble separating her role from the Marsh Arab and became confused about who was channelling souls. But the voice that is the spine of the play belongs to the most complex of the characters, the artist Layal, who has become the curator of the Saddam Art Centre — by accommodating

Saddam’s relatives and friends in any way they want. Lest we condemn her, Layal tells us what happens to women who out their rapists: they are kidnapped and eaten by dogs. But Layal has not sold out completely. If her reclamation of her body is questionable, her ownership of her art is not. But while she paints in metaphors that her oppressors will never understand, she also understands that she is (to a point) complicit in the regime and deserves to die. Raffo’s title is taken from the Koran: “God made desire in 10 parts and gave nine to women.” It’s the proverb that is often offered as a justification for shutting Islamic women away from the world and a challenge that Raffo eagerly wants to take on. Her characters display their relationships to traditional Muslim religion by the way they wear and carry the long black robe, the abaya — or its derivation. Layal is talking of her art when she says: “I do not ever want to expose exactly another woman’s body so I paint my body but her body/herself inside me. So it is not me alone it is all of us, but I am the body that takes the experience . . . your experience, your self, I will take, and only you and I will know who it is.” But the statement is also something of a blueprint for Raffo’s play as the women ultimately blend into each other. While they speak from differing perspectives, the characters all have the same need: freedom. While the answer to “Freedom from what?” can mostly be worked out by the audience in the context of each story, the answer to “Freedom to do what?” provides much food for thought. I have acknowledged my own confusion about the role of the mourner, and I also think this production has yet to find its complete rhythm. But there is so much here that is compelling, 9 Parts of Desire should not be missed.

In Memoriam

GUL - Nafisa (nee Khadrian) March 15, 1948 - Oct 22, 2009 It was one year ago today that our dear mother, grandmother and friend Nafisa Gul passed away peacefully at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, BC surrounded by her family. She is survived by her son Wahid, daughters Nahid, Maria (Darren), Froozan (Afshin) and her grandchildren Adam, Armaan, Daniel, Ariana and Rameen. She will be remembered for her elegance, her generousity and her kind and loving nature. Her memory will enrich our lives forever. ‘‘Always loved and forever in our prayers’’


July 01, 1929 - Oct. 22, 1990

May the winds of love blow softly and whisper so you can hear that we still love & miss you, and wish that you were here. MIZPAH Betty and Family


BALDWIN - Elsie Ina (nee Catto) passed away peacefully of complications from several strokes on October 19,2010 with family at her side. Elsie was born on April 26, 1918 in Aldergrove to Joseph and Mary Emanuel Catto and was the youngest of 8 surviving children. Her early family life was reflective of the difficult times and in spite of the hardships of the Depression, she grew to be a strong-minded, intelligent, principled, generous, affectionate, spunky and, above all, a loving and caring person. After spending her youth on the family farm, she traveled to Ottawa during the war years and returned to Vancouver to continue her career as an executive assistant. There she met the love of her life and loving husband of 62 years, Len Baldwin. In spite of the hotly contested crib games as co-workers at St Regis Paper, Len and Elsie were married in Vancouver in 1949 and quickly became long term residents of North Vancouver. It was there that they welcomed their children, Kathleen and Gordon, into a world surrounded by undying love and respect. Strong family values were keystones of Elsie’s love of life and many happy years were spent at family gatherings with her sisters and their extended families. Elsie was also very devoted to and loving of her own extended family including her daughter in law Tanyss and her precious grandchildren Daina, Erin, Andrew, Teddy and Elly. After raising her children at home, Elsie started her second career working at the Vancouver Masonic Society offices and enjoyed many entertaining and productive years while there. In her retirement years, Elsie enjoyed her garden, traveling with Len on numerous cruises and watching lovingly as her grandchildren matured into the young adults that she was so proud of. She was also an avid fan of the Vancouver Whitecaps and was renown for her outbursts at the refs while watching her beloved Canucks on television. The family wishes to express their appreciation for the attention and care that the nurses on Wing 7 East at Lions Gate Hospital extended to Elsie in her final weeks. We would also like to express our sincere and heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Dana Haaf for his care and counsel for Elsie. Elsie was a much beloved wife, mother and grandmother and she will be missed. A memorial service and reception to celebrate the life of Elsie Ina Baldwin will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at Highlands United Church, 3255 Edgemont Boulevard, North Vancouver, BC. The family respectfully requests that, in lieu of any flowers, a donation be made in Elsie’s name to the North Shore Schizophrenia Society, #205 - 1865 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, B.C.V7V 1J7

WILLIAMS - Mary Elizabeth ‘Bette’ (nee Armstrong) Aug 4, 1922 - Oct 19, 2010 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend on October 19, 2010. Bette leaves behind her adoring husband of 66 years, Lloyd Williams, her children Jane, Dai & Martha Williams, her grandchildren Evan Williams, Kyle Williams, Paul Steffes and her great-grandson, Jayden Williams. She is predeceased by her brother, Rae Alden (Syd Armstrong). Bette was born in Anyox, BC and raised in Vancouver where she attended Kitsilano High School. There she excelled in sports, especially field hockey. She met Lloyd in high school and they eloped during WWII in October 1944 when Lloyd was home on leave from the Navy. Bette lived in West Vancouver for the past 45 years where she played badminton, was an original member of the Ambleside Waterfront Ratepayers Association, loved to paint and for many years was a member of the West Vancouver Sketch Club. Her greatest love apart from family was playing bridge. Bette loved her home and surroundings and not a day went by when she didn’t express to friends and family how lucky and fortunate she felt to live where she did and to have had such a long and fulfilling life. All who knew her looked to her for her wisdom and inner strength and loved her for her truthfulness and loyalty. Bette’s wishes were that her family celebrate her life privately. Flowers graciously declined; however, friends wishing to honour Bette’s memory, please do so with an association of your choice.'

1010 ´ - Kalman Josef OPRE Sept. 4, 1924 - Oct. 19, 2010 Kal passed away peacefully with his wife and children by his side. He is survived by his loving wife Betty of 55 years, daughter Karin (Tom), son John (Elaine), grandchildren Sean (Racheal), Lisa, Nyree, Alyssa, Kalman, and great-granddaughter Gracie. He was born in Szeged, Hungary. Although, proud of his Hungarian heritage he firmly adopted Canada as his home when he arrived in 1949. He was a man of many talents; artist, writer, publisher, teacher, athlete, and entrepreneur. Kal was a free spirit, living life to the fullest, with many accomplishments along the way. With his autobiography nearly completed, family and friends have the opportunity to continue to learn of his amazing adventurous life. The family would like to thank Dr. L. Bard, Dr. J. Shaw, and the staff at Lions Gate Hospital. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundations or the BC Cancer Society. There will be a Memorial Service held at 2:00pm on Friday, October 29, 2010, at Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver

Columnist DAVID CHAO reviews the audi a7 Sportback next week in REV

Cadillac Coupe is back CTS Coupe adds to Caddy’s youth movement david Chao and bob Mchugh Contributing Writers

A second-generation CTS was introduced in 2008, a wagon version was added last year and the Coupe is the latest addition. Our test CTS Coupe (base price $47,450) came with a six-speed automatic transmission included in a Premium Preferred Equipment ($7,085) package, a Sport ($1,770) package plus a special “Tintcoat” paint ($1,295). All of which pushed its price up to $59,250, including fees and delivery charges. The Sport package adds 19-inch polished aluminum wheels with performance tires, a load levelling rear suspension, steering wheel transmission shifters and more. The base CTS sedan See Entry page 49

Entry into Coupe’s back seat particularly awkward From page 48

comes with a 3.0-litre (270 horsepower) V-6 engine and a choice of manual or automatic transmissions. The CTS-V coupe comes with a 6.2-litre (556 h.p.) supercharged V-8 engine and a horde of other performance components. The Coupe comes with a 3.6-litre V-6 that has all the latest engine technology including four valves per cylinder, variable valve timing and direct fuel injection. It can produce 304 h.p. at 6,400 r.p.m. and 273 foot-pounds of torque at 5,300 r.p.m., on regular fuel. The standard transmission on the CTS Coupe is a six-speed manual and there’s also an all-wheel-drive edition.

the looks Nicely proportioned and lower than the sedan, the CTS Coupe has the same sharply chiselled and very distinctive styling lines. While the coupe’s wheelbase is the same as the sedan, the body is a little shorter and it has a wider rear track. The Coupe’s front windshield is also more steeply raked than the sedan and so is its rear window. Centrally positioned dual exhaust pipes are another distinctively coupe feature. Its extra-large doors also have unusual and hidden push-button latch releases instead of conventional door handles. There’s a similar electric latch release on the lower lip of the trunk lid. The cargo space was smaller than anticipated, the opening is on the narrow side and space has to be left for large

hinges that can crush items stowed in the trunk when the lid is closed. the inside The Coupe’s dash is much like the sedan with a three-pod instrument cluster, with a combination of analog and digital readouts, in front of the driver. A centrally positioned chromeringed analog time clock adds a touch of elegance and above it there’s a partially hidden pop-up monitor. The centre console flows nicely into the dash and it houses cleverly positioned climate controls and seat heat/cool controls for the front seating positions. Other than the console box there’s limited storage spots and the door pockets are small. The front bucket seats are generously sized and you sit lower, more sports-car-like, than in the sedan. Getting into the back seat of a coupe is never easy, but the CTS Coupe is particularly awkward. The front seats don’t have a single-action fold forward feature and the front seatbelt, which is attached to the front seat, gets in the way. The two rear seating positions look inviting and are nicely

dual-depth design of air bag that is even more effective at reducing injuries in a vehicle collision. The OnStar system with its security and emergency features is another

GM exclusive. the drive The driving position is excellent with a range of adjustments on the seats for taller-than-average drivers. Rear vision through the Coupe’s steeply raked rear window is limited and the side mirrors are small, so the rear view camera comes in handy. The sport package on our test CTS Coupe stiffened the ride but it was still comfortable. The body feels rock solid over rough roads and this car tracks a straight line extremely well, which is always a confidence builder. The steering is on the

light side yet has a precise action and the CTS Coupe is reasonably agile for a vehicle its size and weight. It does feel heavier than most of its competitors and could pull better at low engine speeds. The transmission shifts smoothly but if you want to drive more enthusiastically the manual mode is the way to go, as the engine livens up considerably above 4,000 r.p.m. Manual shifts are via steering wheel-mounted buttons on the back of the steering wheel. Here again the action is not as crisp as some competitors and a sport automatic mode would be a

exactly what Google’s been working on: camera cars working on the Streetview project have been driving themselves. Google claims to have logged more than 225,000 kilometres on public roads without human input. Naturally, the cars have a human driver in them in case of emergencies, but in all other respects the car does the driving, stopping at traffic lights, changing lanes and obeying the speed limit. Autonomous cars are nothing new, but this particular project’s success certainly points toward a future where cars will drive themselves. Unfortunately, it also points towards a future where Arnold

Schwarzenegger will be sent back through time to protect John Connor from the T1000. hip-hop group blocks freeway to promote song While America is a great country where anything is possible, from time to time I’m silently grateful that I don’t have to live in it. You see, in Canada, bands generally do things like have “shows” where they play their music before a large crowd of people who have politely arranged to be there beforehand. Also, they tend to play “music” which, without going into any great depth here, is a type of noise that’s pleasing to the ear. See Souped-up page 53

Souped-up scooter hits 80 km/h In the U.S., things are a bit different. That’s why, during rush hour in Hollywood, on the alreadyensnarled 101 Freeway, an American musical group blocked the road with a bus to perform a live version of their new song, “Traffic Jam 101.” No wait, I didn’t mean to say “musical group.” I meant, “three talentless white guys in baggy trousers.” Also, seeing as one of the rappers had an enormous cloud of red hair, I really must reach out to my fellow members of the ginger community with an appeal. Please, please remember: we can’t rap. Oh sure, we can have award-winning late-night television programs that get taken over by Jay Leno, or we can solve crimes with the assistance of a curmudgeonly sea captain and a little white dog called Snowy, but no hip, and keep the hop to a minimum. mobility scooter tuned by British loon Mobility scooters have their place in the world, and generally it’s right in front of you on the sidewalk when you’re in a bit of a hurry. However, if the scooter in question happens to be owned not by a sweet little old lady, but by a British man named Colin Furze, you’re unlikely to be held up. Furze’s scooter, which has had its electric powerplant replaced with a 125-cc motorcycle engine, is currently capable of 80 kilometres per hour, and he’s shooting for a Guinness world record of 100 km/h. The legality of such a device is questionable, but Mr. Furze can often be seen dressed in tweed and flying along country lanes with his coattails streaming out behind him. And people think the British are reserved. toyota’s sustainability report shows Prius

pollution, healthy workers Being a giant corporation, Toyota keeps data on all sorts of things. Anything with an environmental impact, be it manufacturing processes or air-conditioning use, is collected and published in their annual sustainability report. This year’s report held a few surprises, including the admission that the Prius, while cleaner to run than many purely gasolinepowered cars, creates a larger carbon footprint during the manufacturing process. Of course, this really isn’t news to anyone as the complexity of a hybrid powertrain, and the heavy metals used in its creation must require more energy to be used in production. More shipping, more refining and more build-time means more hydrocarbons and more particulate matter, although the worse-than-average rating for the Prius’s manufacturing process is likely to be offset during the vehicle’s operating life. Surprise number 2 is the apparent increase in overall healthiness of Toyota’s workers. Despite the potential stresses caused by wildly over-publicized accelerator pedal problems, the number of employees who smoked dropped by six per cent and there was also a decrease in the number of obese employees. The rest of Toyota’s report contained innovations such as using recycled snow to cool their factories and assessments of the apparent effectiveness of company-wide campaigns against junk food and tobacco. Porsche bans employees from using Facebook No one would ever accuse Porsche of being a frivolous company. Lamborghini may have a chairman who looks like a GQ model, and Ferrari may build cars that catch fire all the time, but Porsche

takes a more German view of things: precision, efficiency, meticulousness. As such, it’s no surprise to learn that the company has taken a fairly strict line on social networking. All 13,000 of Porsche’s employees are banned from using Facebook at work, as the company is concerned about updates like, “Working on new direct injection hybrid, things not going well,” and just below, “Sergio Marchionne Likes This.”

Fall driving presents unique challenges Winter is the season that causes the most problems on the road but before the snow flies the fall driving season presents its own challenges for drivers.

Summer ended last month and while the warm weather has stuck around valiantly, the days are getting shorter, skies are cloudier, temperatures chillier and the feeling of rain and snow is in the air. There are many changes at this time of year that drivers and pedestrians need to be aware of, according to a recent press release from the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation. Halloween and the end of Daylight Savings Time in particular are two of the biggest events on the fall calendar that affect drivers. Halloween is one of a few nights when there is a higher than usual volume of pedestrians and drivers on the streets. Children aged five to 14 years are at the greatest risk for pedestrianrelated fatalities, especially in areas with heavy traffic volumes and a high density of parked cars. The presence of parents or caregivers can help reduce this risk. Drivers should also be patient and look for children darting out

from between parked cars or rushing into intersections without looking. A week after Halloween most communities in B.C. will turn their clocks back one hour when Daylight Savings Time comes to an end. Time changes reflect a change in social clocks, not biological ones, and studies show that our circadian rhythms (body clocks) are not good at adjusting to time changes naturally. We may feel like we’ve gained an extra hour of sleep, but by the end of the first Monday after the time change, we are feeling tired. Fatigue can impair brain and body functions as much as alcohol does. A groggy driver is a dangerous driver and groggy pedestrians can easily put themselves at risk. Studies indicate that the lack of daylight during the evening commute home often sees an increased number of traffic related deaths and serious injuries. “Fall is the time of year when we experience changes in the weather that make road use more dangerous,” said Traffic Safety Foundation executive director Allan Lamb in the release. “Several factors come into play with traffic safety at this time of year. Traffic is heavier because See Halloween page 55 • • •

halloween, clock change particularly troublesome for drivers From page 54

more people choose to drive their cars in colder weather. The time change affects our ability to focus during the drive home commute. Winter clothing tends to be dark coloured and not easily seen during darker days. Lower temperatures and less sun make road conditions slippery and wet, forcing drivers to adjust their driving after several months of driving on dry roads.” The Traffic Safety Foundation offers some suggestions to help drivers and pedestrians stay safe: For drivers n Slow down: The faster you travel the longer it will take to stop. Give yourself more time to react to a situation by driving 10 kilometres per hour slower and allow more time to reach your destination. n Reduce speed in rain: Heavy rains after a prolonged dry spell tend to bring oil to the surface of the road and create large pools making roads slick and making vehicles susceptible to

hydroplaning. n Stop: Come to a full stop at designated intersections then proceed slowly. n Slippery road surfaces: Fallen leaves retain large amounts of water and can create a slippery surface that can be just as treacherous as patches of ice. Drive slowly through them and avoid hard or panic braking. n Turn your headlights on: Most daytimerunning light systems don’t automatically illuminate the taillights. n Windows: Wipe away snow or frost, defrost interior and change windshield wiper blades before their effectiveness is reduced. n Watch for children: Reduce your speed in residential areas and around schools and parks. Children often dart out from between parked cars or into intersections. n Do not drive while impaired: Fatigue is a form of impairment — get plenty of sleep and if you’ve consumed alcohol or drugs, find alternate transportation such as a designated driver, taxi or transit.

For Pedestrians n Clothing: Wear light or reflective clothing to make you more visible in dark conditions. Carrying a flashlight will also make you more visible and help you see your way in the dark. n Intersections: Always cross at a designated intersection, looking both ways, and make sure drivers see you before you cross. Never step out from between parked cars. n Plan the walking portion of your commute along well-lit streets. n If there is no sidewalk, always walk facing

traffic and as far off the road as possible. halloween n Children wear light or reflective costumes that are easy to move in and don’t cause tripping, and use face paint instead of wearing a mask. n Parents make sure the “loot route” is planned along well-lit streets n Parents accompany children and make sure the group travels together. n Parents review the “rules of the road” before starting out.
