Humble hero saves 2 from West Van ﬁre Acetone-fuelled salon ﬁre traps two behind wall of ﬂame and smoke James Weldon
TWO people were lucky to escape alive from a West Vancouver beauty salon Monday when a tub of nail polish remover caught ﬁre, rapidly triggering a larger blaze that blocked the only exit.
Fireﬁghters say the two were saved by the quick actions of a passerby. The accident happened at about 2 p.m. when a worker at the salon in the 200-block of 17th Street opened a one-gallon tub of acetone and started pouring it into smaller containers. According to investigators, a nearby scented candle ignited the vapours and set the large container on ﬁre, but because the chemical burns with a nearly invisible ﬂame, the worker didn’t notice what had happened until the heat grew so intense she could feel it. The container melted abruptly, spilling the burning chemical across the countertop and ﬂoor, quickly igniting wooden doors, the paint on the walls and other ﬂammables. Most of the half-dozen occupants immediately escaped the building, See Two page 5
Province gives LGH 2 new emergency doctors
DOCTORS at Lions Gate Hospital’s emergency room are still waiting to see if a recent $12-million funding boost from the province is the good news it appears to be.
“We don’t have a ﬁnal word,” said Dr. Mike O’Neil, a 20-year veteran of emergency medicine. “We thought it was going to be very good news. We’re not certain at this time.” On Wednesday, the provincial Ministry of Health and the B.C. Medical Association announced a deal that will see the province provide more funding to pay for contracted emergency room physicians at 19 hospitals in British Columbia. The deal would see the number of full-time positions rise at Lions Gate Hospital’s ER to 16.29 from a current 14. O’Neil said at ﬁrst glance the news looks promising. But he cautioned doctors are waiting to make sure other funding for the emergency department isn’t reduced at the same time. — Jane Seyd

SS Master, last of B.C.’s steam tugs
Restored icon to visit city’s Party at the Pier Jane Seyd firstname.lastname@example.org
IT takes two days to turn on the engine of the steam tug SS Master. Slow and steady is how the tugboat spent her working life along the B.C. coast. In retirement, 88 years after she was built by master shipwright Arthur Moscrop in False Creek, it’s no different. The ship’s triple expansion steam engine must be warmed up slowly and carefully these days to avoid damaging the boiler, which reaches operating steam at about 150 pounds of pressure — giving a speed of approximately eight knots on the water. Back when she was a working boat, hauling limestone in barges from Texada Island, rafts of logs to mills on the Fraser or coal from Union Bay to fuel the furnaces at Vancouver City Hall and Vancouver General Hospital, the steam tug rarely started cold. “They kept them running,” said Chris Croner, president of the SS Master Society. “That was the idea of them.” During its heyday — between the 1920s and the 1940s — the Master was one NEWS photos Cindy Goodman of about 200 steam tugs plying the B.C. coast, and her work CHRIS Croner, president of the SS Master Society, peers from the wheelhouse of the 88-year-old, steam-ﬁred tugboat — the last of its kind. mirrored the life of the young The tug is now operated by a volunteer society that is looking for more members and support since losing provincial lottery funding. province. Today, the wooden-hulled steam tug is the only one of its kind now that’s been scuttled. Last month, the old tug received a welcome donation when left in North America, kept running by a group of volunteers North Vancouver’s Allied Shipbuilders did a reﬁt on the boat for dedicated to preserving the tug and the history it represents. “Towboats are to the West Coast what the Bluenose was to the free to keep the vessel shipshape, a value Croner estimates at about $85,000.

The society has been turned down for heritage status once by “Usually we tear things down or burn them, sell them or throw Ottawa already, but Croner said volunteers are planning to try them away. These things are important.” The society, which will bring the Master to North Vancouver’s again. “We need volunteers and we need people to support it,” he Party on the Pier this Saturday, July 17, needs all the help it can said. get. The Master isn’t a working ship anymore, but she’s still in sound It costs about $50,000 a year to maintain the ship, which worked as a towboat until 1959. The society used to get between condition, he added, thanks to several major overhauls. “The hull $20,000 and $40,000 from the province in lottery funding. But is good for another 100 years,” he said. While modern tugs are built of steel and have a maximum crew of four, the Master runs with a crew of six — two in the wheelhouse, two on deck and two in the engine room. Communication between the wheelhouse and the engine room is done with bell signals. “If that fails, you start yelling down the voice box,” said Croner — a basic funnel that runs between the two. When the tug is underway, “There’s no noise,” said Croner. “It’s like being on a sailboat.” There have been some small concessions to modernity added over the years. The radar for instance, is kept discreetly under a wooden box in the wheelhouse, necessary because the tug is often moved at night. There’s also a marine radio, a diesel-powered generator kept strictly for emergencies and modern inﬂatable lifeboats on board. A hinge on the smoke stack means it can also be folded down when needed. The heart of the ship hasn’t changed, however — the Master still operates with her original steam engine, a surplus from a World War I minesweeper that was never built, and a twin Scotch Marine ﬁretube boiler. “It gets 100 degrees in there when they’re steaming,” said Croner. “In the old days guys would have to take salt pills.” Croner’s had a “love affair” with the Master for the past 30 years, since the day he spotted black smoke coming out of the stack across the water of False Creek. “I raced over and said, ‘You got a ﬁre on board?’ They said, ‘Yep.’” After that, “I didn’t leave,” he said. “People come in and say ‘I know that smell; oil and steam together,’ or, ‘I haven’t heard that sound since the ’50s.’” PRESSURE gauges in the SS Master’s engine room CRONER is grateful to North Van’s Allied Shipyards for “I really feel it’s an important part of our history,” he said. signal how much energy the boiler is generating. donating about $85,000-worth of work on the Master. “We’ve got to keep this girl going.”

Small steps, big beliefs
Family charity aims to aid unwed mothers in Muslim Pakistan Lara Howsam
A North Shore family is taking their passion for music to another level with a charitable concert at Centennial Theatre in North Vancouver on Sunday. The concert aims to bring awareness to the dire situation of unwed mothers and their babies in Northern Pakistan. The Karim family — father Amin, mother Nermin, daughter Saﬁya (16), son Zia (14), son Fillah (13) and son Jamil (8) — is a family of performers. They were seeking a way to blend their unique identity and they found it in creating music. “We felt, for the children, we needed them to be proud of who they were,” Amin said, “to be able to stand up and say, ‘I am proud to be an Ismaili, proud to be a Canadian.’”

Shahada’s main goal is to provide unwed mother’s with a safe place to have prenatal care, give birth to their babies and the choice to leave them knowing they will be properly taken care of. In a country like Pakistan, having an orphanage involves several complications. “You can’t have a big sign on the door saying Orphanage Here,” said Nermin. “In that area of the world, if you say that, you are saying it is OK to have pre-marital sex, which they cannot do.” Attempting to ﬁt in to the community and gain acceptance, the family became involved in an education project in the Chitral area in northern Pakistan, the Queen Academy.

Each child is given a honeybee box to harvest and then sell the honey for proﬁt. “Give them a bunch of bees and the next thing you know they can pay for their next year of school and they are feeling so proud of themselves,” Nermin said. Amin said the project has been so successful that the honeybee boxes are providing income that provides for things beyond school fees, such as health care and better living environments.

but two people, a staff member and a customer who was receiving a treatment, were trapped in a back room, unable to get past the ﬂames to the front door — the only exit. Thick black smoke was soon billowing from the storefront. A passerby, seeing the plume and hearing screams, ran into a nearby delicatessen and grabbed a ﬁre extinguisher. The man ducked into the burning building and quickly got the ﬁre under control, allowing the two victims to escape. West Vancouver ﬁreﬁghters arrived on scene a few minutes
later and ﬁnished the job. The man and one other person involved suffered minor smoke inhalation, but were otherwise unhurt. Investigators estimate damage to the building at about $10,000. A spokesman for the ﬁre department praised the anonymous Good Samaritan, saying his quick thinking likely saved two lives. “He was one of those very, very humble heroes,” said division ﬁre chief Martin Ernst. “He didn’t want to hang around too long; he wasn’t looking for anyone to pat him on the back. . . .

Haven can wait T
HEY say you can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps, but it appears that hasn’t stopped our government from trying. As reported in the Globe and Mail this week, the Canada Revenue Agency is preparing to loosen the rules around voluntary disclosure for big-time tax dodgers. The new regulations will reportedly allow Canadians with secret offshore accounts to fess up at less expense, with only the past 10 years of undeclared earnings open to scrutiny by tax collectors. The move will bring Canada’s tax laws more in line with those in the United States — but it only goes half the distance. Unlike our southern neighbour, which has been turning the screws
on Swiss banks and other offshore havens, forcing them to turn in their tax-dodging clients, Canada is doing nothing to drive the errant well-to-do into the open. Without that component, the plan is of little value. Why would cheaters volunteer to pay a decade of back taxes when there is no greater risk of discovery now than there was when they started? The new rule simply means the few who are foolish enough to get caught won’t pay as stiff a penalty as they would have otherwise. If the federal government ever wants to see its lost revenue, it will have to produce a cane in addition to this new carrot. Freeloaders will only pay up if there is a downside to not doing so.
Lautens column based on misconceptions
Dear Editor: With regard to Trevor Lautens’ July 9 column Vancouver Mayor Should Stop Peddling Bicycles, I would like to thank Mr. Lautens for the opportunity to clear up several of the misperceptions some have regarding cycling. Riding a bike is a healthy form of transportation and recreation enjoyed by around half the population. Sure, due to the lack of a safe network of routes separated from trafﬁc, relatively few people cycle every day. However, according to the 2006 census, in some of the neighbourhoods near Burrard Bridge around 10 per cent of people commute by bicycle. This percentage is likely even higher now due to the successful Burrard Bridge separated bike lanes. According to a survey by the city, 20 per cent of Vancouver residents cycled over Burrard Bridge in the month after the trial started. Due to the popularity of cycling and its potential to reduce congestion, pollution and health-care costs, governments all around the world are investing in cycling. The City of Vancouver is spending $25 million from the current three-year capital plan on improving cycling facilities so that people of all ages and abilities will feel safe cycling more often. While this is a good start on making up for the decades of underfunding of cycling, it is signiﬁcantly less than in many other cities. Sydney is spending $76 million dollars over three years, while Brisbane is spending $100 million over four years. Portland is planning on investing $613 million over two decades. If Mr. Lautens had bothered doing any research or even reading the ﬁrst part of his own article which mentioned Minister Kevin Falcon’s support for cycling, he would have realized that support for cycling comes from across the political spectrum and not just the “mostly ideologically left.” In fact, the conservative mayor of London, Boris Johnson, is implementing a bike-share program.
Closer to home, Seattle and Portland both have cycling mayors. President Barack Obama’s secretary of transportation, Republican Ray LaHood, has impressed advocates by his commitment to improve cycling. Mr. Lautens should be happy to learn that most shared bicycles have adjustable seats so they can be used by a wide range of people.
The hills of Metro Vancouver are not much of an issue due to electric bicycles. In China, 20 million electric bicycles are sold each year compared to only around 13 million cars. In a world of uncertain gas prices and dwindling supply, bicycles are likely to become a more essential part of our everyday lives. Richard Campbell, director British Columbia Cycling Coalition
Lautens should take aim at wasted sidewalks Dear Editor: Bravo for Trevor Lautens’ keen assessment on cycling in Vancouver and for taking Mayor Gregor Robertson and friends to task for destroying our ﬁne city by taking away trafﬁc lanes on the Burrard Bridge and Dunsmuir Street to create empty bike lanes. Unfortunately, he missed the much greater threat to public funds and to driving freedom — namely sidewalks. I did a rough calculation, and determined that more than 25 per cent of Vancouver’s street surfaces are already devoted to sidewalks compared to only 0.5 per cent being devoted exclusively to cycling. Unlike in some more sensible suburban jurisdictions, there has been a misguided attempt to put sidewalks along every street in Vancouver. These are put in at great expense and hardly anyone uses them! Maintenance costs are astronomical. On the street where I live, most residents cross the sidewalk to access their cars, but hardy anyone actually walks along the sidewalk. And we are
forced to clean the snow off the sidewalks every winter. Luckily, there are still some sidewalk-free streets in Vancouver, but Mayor Robertson and his gang at city hall are determined to waste our hard earned tax dollars on completing the sidewalk network. Our mayor could do some real good by removing sidewalks from arterials and creating more trafﬁc lanes. The few people who insist on walking could simply walk on parallel streets or be forced to share the road by walking close to the curb. If this is considered to be unsafe, we could simply force all pedestrians to wear helmets. If more drive-thru businesses were encouraged, we wouldn’t have to walk at all. And I wish that Trevor would encourage our mayor to give us some freeways — Vancouver will never be the greenest city on earth with all those cars stuck in trafﬁc jams every day.

Could it be Carole vs. Carole in 2013? THE legislature is a fairly quiet place these days, as our politicians are scattered far and wide for the summer. But their absence hasn’t ended the main political guessing game in this province. That game is about trying to ﬁgure out if there is any hope of a revival of B.C. Liberal fortunes, and if so, who is going to create it. A lot of names have been kicked around, but it would seem only one person has a realistic hope of breathing life into the party and returning it to competitive status come the 2013 election. That person’s name? Carole Taylor. Of all the potential heirs to Gordon Campbell’s leadership, only Taylor can separate herself from the current government, particularly over the issue of the HST. When she was ﬁnance minister, she opposed bringing the HST to this province. Among her reasons was a refusal to give up all kinds of exemptions to the tax, and reluctance to cede authority over the sales tax to the federal government. But her potential strengths go much deeper than that. As ﬁnance minister she racked up some hefty budget surpluses and gained a
View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey
reputation as an able, pragmatic and non-ideological politician (although there are likely many people who never really viewed her as a politician in the traditional sense of a partisan combatant). Her public image is one built on achievement, likeability and even glamour. On all these fronts, she scores much better than any other potential leadership candidate. But a key strength is her ability to go to the voters with clean hands, to make the argument that she had nothing to do with the things that made the B.C. Liberals so unpopular over a relatively short period of time. Speculation abounds over Gordon Campbell’s future. Personally, I think he will announce sometime next year or early 2012 that he won’t be running again. Of course, if there’s a miracle turnaround in the polls
— an eventuality that appears extremely remote — he may well choose to stick around. But he once told me that he thought 10 years in the premier’s chair was a good benchmark of political success, and that means the due date is May 2011. His departure would theoretically mean a leadership race in the party. But there doesn’t have to be one. The NDP, for example, opted to let Mike Harcourt — fresh from Vancouver city hall — take over the party leadership unopposed in 1987. The New Democrats were mindful how much damage a messy leadership ﬁght can do to a party, particularly when things don’t go as planned and a long-shot candidate whom no one really wanted as leader ends up being just that (remember Bob Skelly?). The B.C. Liberals, however, seem to have no end of people
whose ambition may lead them to reach for the leader’s position. Cabinet ministers such as Rich Coleman, Kevin Falcon, Mike de Jong, Shirley Bond, George Abbott, and even the beleaguered Colin Hansen all get mentioned when talk turns to a party leadership race. But they appear to all be hamstrung by the fallout over the HST, and even if the public grudgingly accepts the tax, I’m not sure they’re going to forgive the politicians responsible for it. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts is also talked about as leadership material, and certainly the fact she’s not “one of them” puts her in good stead. But her inexperience at the provincial level may create enough doubts to nix a winning candidacy. This brings us back to Carole Taylor. She hasn’t actually said she’d even be interested in taking
the job, but that’s to be the expected response as long as Campbell is still the boss. And with Campbell likely to remain leader for another year or so, it is premature for the B.C. Liberals to allow any public speculation by their own people on the leadership issue. But privately, you know they’re all thinking about it. And if they want to survive, they had better have a game plan. It appears the best such
plan would see all those leader wannabes check their egos at the door and allow Taylor to win by acclamation. That could set up an historic ﬁght in 2013: Carole versus Carole. Not only would that guarantee an elected female premier in this province for the ﬁrst time ever, but it would likely ensure this province sticks close to the political centre.

Residents: City not listening
Council calls for public meeting on Green Necklace expansion Benjamin Alldritt firstname.lastname@example.org
THE City of North Vancouver is pushing to start work on an extension to the Green Necklace path system before the project’s federal funding expires, but nearby residents say the urgency has left their concerns unaddressed. The city hopes to build a three-metre wide asphalt pathway along the north side of Keith Road between St. Andrews Avenue and Grand Boulevard West. The project will be partly funded by the provincial and federal governments if it is completed by March of 2011. One of the issues to be decided is whether to narrow the road to accommodate the path, or to ﬁt it within the existing curb. At a city council meeting July 5, John Staynor led a delegation of Keith Road residents who took issue with the city’s approach. “In general principle, we’re not against the greenway extension,” Staynor said. “There’s a number of issues we’d like to address with regards to it though and we’ve gone through a bit of a process that we’re not quite satisﬁed with.”
Staynor said when he and his neighbours went to the city’s ﬁrst public meeting, on May 12, “everyone was surprised.” “We really expected that we were going to have some sort of consultation, but what we were presented with was almost a fait accompli,” he said. Staynor said city staff didn’t respond to residents’ questions, and raised new issues at later meetings without answering the earlier queries. He also told council that a proposed crosswalk at Keith Road and St. David’s Avenue was unsafe and a “crosswalk to nowhere,” given that northbound trafﬁc would have to detour to Ridgeway or St. Andrew’s avenues anyway. Coun. Guy Heywood asked the project leader, landscape architect Dimitri Samaridis, if the federal grant application had pushed staff to “overplan.” “Did we have to present a fully ﬂedged project in order to access federal funding, and did that create this appearance of not consulting thoroughly?” he asked. “In order to obtain the funding, we needed a plan,” Samaridis said, “but as far as public process goes, this is the best we have.” “If the residents’ concerns were not addressed to their satisfaction, that’s a different story, but they have been addressed,” he said. Michael Hunter, city parks and environment manager, said further consultation would take place as the path’s details take shape. He also said it was challenging to ﬁt in exhaustive consultation and still make Ottawa’s deadline. Council voted unanimously to hold an informal public meeting to further discuss the project with residents and staff.

WV police make H. Bay pot seizure A 43-year-old West Vancouver man will likely be facing drug charges after a police search of his home turned up several pounds of what investigators believe to be marijuana.
West Vancouver police entered the house in the 6300-block of Douglas Street July 7 after they received information that there were drugs on the premises. Ofﬁcers seized more than 1.5 kilograms
of suspected ground marijuana, almost 100 grams of a frozen substance they believe to be hash and various pieces of processing equipment. The man was arrested and later released after a hearing before a justice of the peace. Investigators expect to recommend charges to Crown counsel once they have received the results of a lab test. The man’s name has not been released. — James Weldon

INQUIRING REPORTER A B.C. ﬁnance ministry report released July 9 has people talking Olympics again. The report says spending was more than originally thought. While that may not come as any surprise to most, the gross jump in cost might. Costs skyrocketed from the $600 million promised to $925 million. The report indicates there was an extra $165 million spent on security. Hosting programs and advertising accounted for some of the increase. The costs cited do not include infrastructure costs such as rebuilding the Sea to Sky Highway, the RAV line or the convention centre. — Lara Howsam
Kevin Hampton North Vancouver Yes, I think it was great for tourism in Vancouver.
Were the 2010 Olympics worth it despite the huge budget overrun?
Todd Gordon North Vancouver I haven’t been here long enough to have a valid opinion, but I do think it was good to have an international event here.
Hannah Lai Burnaby Yes I still think it was worth it. The crowds that we got in the city and how everyone was so into the spirit, the Canadian spirit, I think it had a good effect on the community.
Karen Russell North Vancouver In a way, I don’t think it was. There are a lot of problems in places like East Vancouver, and I feel like they should take care of the people before they do a big event like that.

Doug MacKay-Dunn said. “Seymour’s is a well-run business and a well-run bar, and West Vancouver Baptist Church believe me, I know bars . . . I’ve seen some of the good ones and 450 Mathers Avenue • West Vancouver a lot of the bad ones.” www.westvanbaptist.com • 604-922-0911 Councillors also applauded Seymour’s Pub owners for providing extra stafﬁng and security to monitor streets and parking lots to accommodate the later closing time. your favourite read brings it home on Wednesdays your favourite read brings it home on Wednesdays “My initial response to this is that these pubs, drinking establishments and clubs present some real issues to neighbouring residential communities,” Coun.

City council gets photo and Canadian navy history lesson Benjamin Alldritt
THE City of North Vancouver now has a framed commemoration of HMCS Capilano, the Second World War-era warship named after the North Shore community. Alex Rueben, a Canadian Forces navy captain and former North Vancouver resident, made the presentation Monday in front of representatives from several veterans’ organizations, cadets, and reservists. “I grew up in North Vancouver,” Rueben told council, “so when the chance came up I went to the admiral and said ‘This is one I have to make.’”
As part of the Canadian navy’s centenary celebrations, ofﬁcers across the country are “bringing the navy to Canadians” by delivering photographs and written histories to municipalities that lent their names to vessels, said Rueben, who is the navy’s chief of staff for the Paciﬁc coast. “Naming ships for communities serves to create a bond between the namesake city and the ship’s company. Our current ships have all beneﬁted from the generosity of their namesake city with amenities that were presented on the occasion of their commissioning. The main passageways in our ships are named for the main thoroughfare in the companion city,” he said. NorthVancouver’snamesake was christened HMCS Capilano to avoid confusion with another

ship, HMCS Vancouver. Commissioned in Victoria in the summer of 1944, Capilano was a 1,445-tonne River Class frigate. It reached a top speed of 19 knots and was home to 141 sailors. Designed to defend merchant vessels from submarine attack, Capilano escorted convoys across the North Atlantic until the end of the war. The 300-foot ship was sold into private hands in 1947 and renamed before sinking off the Cuban coast while being towed to Miami in 1953. Rueben also stressed the importance of Canada’s navy. “This display will be a permanent reminder to the citizens of North Vancouver that Canada is a maritime nation, dependent upon the oceans for national prosperity.”

Erin McPhee email@example.com
FINDING themselves grounded in a motel in Queen Charlotte City due to inclement weather, Sarah Harmer and her expedition mates opted to throw a little party. The acclaimed singer/songwriter was in the area as a result of her participation in the National Parks Project, a collaborative ﬁlm, music, television and new media initiative. Inspired by the Group of Seven and Margaret Atwood’s Survival, the project sees groups of ﬁlmmakers and musicians visit Canada’s national parks and create a short ﬁlm that’s telling of their exploration, both physical and emotional. The 13 resulting mini-documentaries will be posted online, as well, will air on Discovery HD in spring 2011. Harmer’s team, in the midst of a six-day journey
in May through B.C.’s Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, included fellow musicians Jim Guthrie and the Constantines’ Bry Webb, and director Scott Smith. They’d been exploring the area mainly by boat and ﬂoatplane so the night’s poor conditions had forced them to seek shelter. More than just a ruckus, beer-fuelled night-in, the resulting festivities proved to yield the musicians’ signature contribution, a song entitled “Long Time Before This.” Harmer penned the words while Guthrie and Webb wrote the music and the trio, quieting the revelers, recorded the work on the spot, making use of the only instruments they brought along for the ride — a mandolin, some guitars and a little Casio keyboard. “It reﬂects, lyrically, the landscape but, hopefully in a suggestive and kind of evocative way,” says Harmer. Harmer’s connection to the natural world and her interest in protecting it is a fundamental part of who she is. Following the completion of her last major tour, in support of 2005’s I’m A Mountain, a Polaris Music Prize-nominated work, she continued to perform and record, though focused mainly on advocating against a proposed quarry on the Niagara Escarpment, near her native Burlington, Ont. Now a
Kingston area resident, Harmer’s roots remain deeply imbedded in the landscape of her home, seeing her join like-minded residents and take a major stand. Harmer co-founded PERL (Protecting Escarpment Rural Land), a non-proﬁt conservation organization focused on defeating the quarry proposal. While the campaign to protect the escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, continues, Harmer has made a triumphant return to the music scene, having just released a new album, Oh Little Fire, that’s continuing to garner positive accolades. She’s currently touring Europe and North America, performing at a number of major festivals between now and when the tour wraps up in November, including October’s Austin City Limits Festival and this weekend’s Vancouver Folk Music Festival. Harmer has fully been enjoying being back on the road. “My band mates are all wonderful and easy going and we’ve had good luck as far as just managing to pull off a tight schedule and have fun shows. We feel like we’re really starting to work something up on stage,” says Harmer Monday, from her home on a rare night off. She was set to play the Ottawa Bluesfest the See Harmer page 31

Coupland’s cool Canadiana Artist shares his vision in new clothing line for Roots
DOUGLAS Coupland can now add fashion designer to his list of job titles, which includes author, visual artist, sculptor, furniture designer and ﬁlmmaker. Canadian clothing store Roots has partnered with the artistic national icon to produce a limited edition clothing line, Roots X Douglas Coupland. The collection made its debut at Roots stores and online on July 8. It features items for women, men and children and includes several accessories. Coupland, a West Vancouver resident, is best known for his work as an author writing internationally acclaimed books such as Generation X and JPod. Roots was established in 1973 in Toronto. The brand prides itself on being Canadian, featuring classic Canadian red and Canada’s native animal, the beaver on many of its items. The partnership with Coupland marks the ﬁrst time Roots has allowed an outside designer to contribute to the brand. The theme for the Roots X Douglas Coupland collection is “Canada Goes Electric.” Coupland said that exploring his own Canadian roots is something that came out in the design process. “For more than 10 years I’ve been intimately exploring what it means to be Canadian,” he said in a press release. “This partnership with Roots is an amazing opportunity to keep that dialogue going with an even wider, more diverse audience.” The colourful line combines Roots’ traditional Canadian symbolism with Coupland’s futurist artistic vision. The Roots beaver gets an ultramodern update on women’s, men’s and children’s T-shirts. A couple of interesting pieces for women are the leggings and tube skirt, which have a black and grey motherboard pattern. Many of the pieces in the collection have a variation of a television colour bar. The most expensive item in the collection, at $1,973, is the limited edition 100th Anniversary Award jacket. The silver leather bomber features many of the symbols of the line and is signed by the artist himself. If the jacket is out of your price range the line features many affordable items such as a crest notebook for $3.99, tee’s starting at $40 and hoodies starting at $98. The line even has art-deco side tables, colourful skateboard decks and sleek laptop bags. Coupland was involved in every aspect of the collaboration from design to advertising. Roots co-founder Don Green said Roots stepped back and let Coupland take the lead. “Visually the collection is strong,” Green said in a press release. “But beyond that, Douglas Coupland has once again shown his trademark humour and brilliance in exploring a new medium, in this case fashion. He has put forth a hopeful and positive message about this great country of ours and the results are impressive.”
WEST Vancouver author and visual artist Douglas Coupland has teamed up with Roots to design the Roots X Douglas Coupland clothing line for women, men and children. The theme for the collection, which features bright and ﬂashy colours, is “Canada Goes Electric.”

Jewelry launches at Lilith FORMER Deep Cove resident Susan Fiedler has partnered with West Vancouver songstress Sarah McLachlan to create a jewelry line that is being sold at Lilith concerts across North America.
The line, designed by McLachlan, consists of a sterling silver necklace ($100) and earrings ($90) in a ﬂowing design. The items can be purchased as a set for a discounted price. They’re for sale online as well as at concert venues and at Y Yoga. “I have always had a great love for jewelry,” McLachlan said in a press release. “I wanted to create something beautiful that people could treasure as a memento of this event. I chose the leaf motif as it holds all the elements of nature’s creation, the seasons and the passing of time, change and renewal.” Fiedler and McLachlan have been making jewelry together for her tours since McLachlan’s ﬁrst Lilith Fair in 2006. MacLachlan has been a longtime supporter and wearer of Fiedler’s Soul Flower jewelry. “Sarah is great to work with,” Fiedler said in a press
release. “She really understands how to design jewelry, and we share the same values when it comes to making socially and environmentally responsible product from eco-friendly reclaimed sterling silver right here in Canada.” Fiedler started her jewelry business in Vancouver in 1991. She has designed jewelry for other musicians’ tours such as the Rolling Stones and the Barenaked Ladies. She designed the spirited F* Cancer Embrace Life bracelet after her own experience with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The bracelet has raised more then $50,000 in support of InspireHealth, an integrated cancer clinic in Vancouver. Fiedler recently sold Soul
Flower to her longtime general manager, according to her website, and now works on creative projects with missionbased businesses and social enterprises. Lilith Fair, a festival that
celebrates women in music, made a stop in Vancouver’s Ambleside Park on July 1 and will be visiting several North American cities over the course of the summer. — Lara Howsam

Safeway employees, customers and the Canada Safeway Foundation raised over
during the month of June for research in the ﬁght against prostate cancer.
Funds raised from the June, 2010 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the ﬁght against prostate cancer.
NICOLAS Cage and Jay Baruchel star in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice now on screen at Empire Esplanade 6.
Disney magic needs more star chemistry
■ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Directed by Jon Turtletaub. Starring Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel and Alfred Molina. Rating: 6 (out of 10) Under which kind of spell would you most like to fall? If CG wizardry is your thing, then Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice won’t disappoint. If, however, you were looking to be mesmerized for a couple of hours by a fantastical story, then you’re in for a rude awakening. Jerry Bruckheimer produced this live-action ﬂick, featuring an homage to Mickey’s famous scene, so you know it’ll be loud before you even take your seat. There is whimsy, too — as when our young character draws a King Kong on the school bus window, waiting for the Empire State Building to come perfectly into view – but there’s just not enough of it. The ﬁlm opens with the history of Merlin (James A. Stephens) and his three apprentices. After the trio get stuck in a love triangle, one goes rogue and joins forces with the evil Morgana (Alice Krige), who has been plotting for centuries to raise an army of the undead and destroy mankind. Why? We’re not really sure, only that the fate of the planet rests with ﬁnding the one child, “the Prime Merlinian,”who will
Julie Crawford grow up to defeat her once and for all. Enter Dave Stutler, who ﬁrst encounters sorcerer Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) as a 10year-old, but quickly writes it off as a nervous breakdown. A decade later Balthazar is back, convinced that Dave (now a NYU physics whiz, and played by Canadian Jay Baruchel) is the chosen one. “I just want to be normal,” protests Dave, who objects as much to the old-man shoes he has to wear (sneakers block the energy from the ground, don’t you know) as he does to the tedious learning of spells. Not to mention that he is on the verge of pursuing Becky (Teresa Palmer), his crush since fourth grade. But once Dave masters a
trick or two, he’s keen to help. Powerful evil sorcerers over the centuries have been defeated and captured — layer by layer — in a kind of a big, bad, Russian nesting doll. First out is Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina), Balthazar’s nemesis. (Molina has great fun with the role, even though it doesn’t require much more than pointing a fancy walking stick around while wearing a bowler hat.) The ﬁlm’s most iconic scene is the nod to the Mickey Mouse piece in 1940’s Fantasia: it features Dave being attacked by mops as his spell goes awry and his workshop goes underwater. But my favourite is the fracas in the middle of a Chinatown celebration, where the huge puppet carried in a Dragon Dance comes to ﬁre-breathing life. It’s helter-skelter storytelling with a heavy dose of CG ﬂooding every frame. That’s not to say that the tricks aren’t impressive: people manifest from a cluster of cockroaches and disappear into dust, cars and people jump through mirrors, and there is plasmaorb throwing a-go-go. It’s just that the rapport between actors Baruchel and Cage seems genuine, and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice would’ve been far more hypnotic had we seen more of it.

Today, the North Shore’s maritime industries are far more modest, but the dilapidated remains of the shipyards are the focus of a North Vancouver Community Arts Council exhibition, Rusty Guts – Glimpses of a Historic Shipyard. Showing from July 16 to Aug. 28, Rusty Guts features images captured by 14 local photographers, including the North Shore News’ Mike Wakeﬁeld. Artifacts and stories from the shipyard will also be available for sharing. Shipbuilding on the North Shore dates back to the age of sail, when the area’s abundant timber provided a ready supply of masts and spars. “There was so much wood here, and you could cut one 200 feet high without any branches or anything on it,” Interior of Wallace Shipyard, Machine Shop A/photo Mike Wakeﬁeld said Francis Mansbridge, former archivist for the CITYSCAPE Community Art Space features the work of 14 photographers in Rusty Guts — Glimpses of a Historic Shipyard.

Atlas brings Arabic groove to folk fest
World music icon gives rare North American performance
■ Natacha Atlas, Sunday, July 18, 5 p.m. Jericho Beach Park main stage, Vancouver Folk Music Festival. For more information visit thefestival.bc.ca.
John Goodman firstname.lastname@example.org
ANGLO-EGYPTIAN musician Natacha Atlas developed her worldly perspective at an early age.
SINCE the early ’90s Natacha Atlas has been exploring different aspects of traditional and contemporary Arabic music on a series of sublime albums.
Born in 1964 in Brussels, Belgium, her father had Egyptian, Moroccan and Palestinian roots (the family name was originally El Atlasi) while her mother hailed from England. After her parents divorced Atlas moved with her mom to the U.K. and spent her teenage years in Northhampton, England. Knowing she is ﬂuent in several languages it still comes as a bit of a surprise when one of the world’s great contemporary Arabic musicians speaks to you with a Midlands accent. The North Shore News talked to Atlas by phone earlier this week while she was on tour in Zagreb, Croatia. It was World Cup ﬁnal day, as a matter of fact, which seemed appropriate considering her involvement in the world music scene. “We spoke a mixture of different languages (at home),” she says. “It really depended on the mood of everyone. French was probably the dominant language for awhile but then it kind of switched.” Atlas grew up in a musical household ﬁlled with sounds from different corners of the world. “I listened to a lot of classical music and folk music,” she says. “When I was about 16 I also got into David Bowie for a short period. And then I kind of went back to my old favourites — Fairuz and Halim Hafez and stuff like that. I was listening to a lot of Bollywood music too from the age of 10 to 16 because the ﬁlms were on See Atlas page 33

Ten good reasons to go to Jericho Beach
■ Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens Deep soul from Brooklyn, New York. Sixty-six-year-old Shelton released her debut album last year on Daptone Records, What Have You Done?, and it is a stunner. The band sounds like they were all born in a Memphis studio fully formed with the Gospel Queens adding a subtle, sustained power. Track after track of immaculate gospel soul like the way they did it back in the day. Think Sam Cooke, Arthur Conley, Denise LaSalle’s Westbound Records sessions, Stax Central. You can’t fake this — this is essential stuff. ■ The Avett Brothers The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop, folk, rock’n’roll, honky tonk and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the “heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones.” ■ Elisapie Isaac Born of an Inuk mother and a Newfoundland father, up-and-coming Canadian singer-songwriter Elisapie Isaac was adopted at birth by an Inuit family and grew up in the community of Salluit, Nunavik. Her ﬁne ﬁrst solo album, There Will Be Stars, came out earlier this year. ■ Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba The ﬁrst-ever group built around four ngoni players (an ancient traditional lute found throughout West Africa) is much more than just a novelty act. The group’s repertoire, from the Sega region in the heart of Bambara culture, is as close to the blues as you can get in Africa. Brilliant. ■ Mississippi Sheiks Tribute Project You heard it on the North Shore ﬁrst at Capilano University. Steve Dawson brings his labour of love to the folk fest with Jim Byrnes, Bob Brozman and Alvin Youngblood Hart sharing the stage. Byrnes both acts and sings with the band in a must-see reincarnation of the Mississippi Sheiks vibe. ■ Janusz Prusinowski Trio The Janusz Prusinowski Trio formed in 2007 to continue the musical traditions of Central Poland, particularly the heritage of the village musicians. The band plays ﬁery mazurkas, triple beat Polish folk dance tunes on ﬁddle, hammer dulcimer, hurdy gurdy, Polish accordion, folk bass, wind instruments and drums. ■ Finley Quaye Fascinating U.K. performer
burst out in 1997 with his debut album, Maverick A Strike, that mixed rock and reggae in new ways. Never predictable Quaye should be worth checking out live on Sunday.
■ Calexico Named for the border town of Calexico, California, the group shares a sun-drenched border with a number of musical styles. They’re inﬂuenced by traditional Latin sounds of mariachi, conjunto, cumbia and tejano, as well as the country music of the southwest, 50’s and 60’s jazz, rock, and more ambient electronic sounds. ■ Al-Andalus Ensemble Led by oud-player Tarik Banzi, the group draws inspiration from the eight century-long tradition of Andalusian Spain (711-1492 AD) combining jazz, classical and contemporary music with the musical traditions of the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. ■ Debashish Bhattacharya Born and raised in Calcutta Bhattacharya plays his selfdesigned “Trinity of Guitars”: the 22-string Chaturangui, the 14-string Gandharvi and a tiny slide ukulele called Anandi. He plays a fascinating fusion of sitar-inspired music with Hawaiian lap steel technique to mine a deep seam of spirituality within a 1,000-year-old tradition.
NAOMI Shelton and the Gospel Queens are scheduled to perform on the main stage at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival Sunday night at 7 p.m.

Senior Environment Advisor (PD 062)
Stunning family home on Vancouver’s North Shore Own a piece of Vancouver history—this fabulous 12 bedroom, 3 level home situated minutes from Eagle Harbour is steeped in local history and is a gift for home reno enthusiasts everywhere.

Other features include high vaulted ceilings, a large sunny south-facing deck, two acres of beautifully manicured gardens and a Rottweiler.

Harmer appearing at fest for second time
following evening. Oh Little Fire, more rockinfused than her last album, a roots offering, was created with the road in mind, a reﬂection of Harmer’s interest in crafting songs that would be danceable for audiences. “It just seemed time to play the electric guitar again and delve back into more complex sounds and more electronic instruments,” she says. Harmer co-produced the album with friend Gavin Brown, a musician and producer who’s worked with a range of artists, from Metric to Billy Talent. The pair met during the recording of her solo debut, 2000’s You Were Here after he was brought in as a drummer. Oh Little Fire was produced in Gavin’s Toronto, Ont. studio as well, some work was done in Chris Brown’s studio on Wolfe Island, near Kingston. Recording near her home base meant Harmer was able to incorporate some of her local buddies, including Chris on the organ and keyboard, Spencer Evans, who played clarinet, and Trevor Henderson on lap steel. Henderson also contributed a song, “Silverado,” that Harmer covered with the help of Neko Case, an accomplished solo artist and member of The New Pornographers. Harmer provided backing vocals on Case’s 2009 record, Middle Cyclone. “For her to return the favour was really, really great,” says Harmer. The session was completed in a hotel room on a laptop during a mini-tour the women had embarked on. “We narrowly squeezed it in between sound check and show one day,” says Harmer. For Oh Little Fire, Harmer attests she didn’t set out with any particular idea in mind, though some recurring themes deﬁnitely surfaced — for example, vulnerability, humility, hope, gratitude, loss and disillusionment. “Oh Little Fire, it’s kind of like ‘note to self,’ the heart, the ﬁre, the thing that you’ve got to really keep, at least kindled and glowing to some heat or else ‘lights out’ kind-of-thing. It’s more of a comment on soul I think,” she says of the title she chose. Harmer’s performance at this weekend’s Vancouver Folk Music Festival marks her second appearance, having played it six years ago. In addition to performing on the mainstage Saturday evening, earlier in the day, at 11 a.m., she’s scheduled to perform in a workshop entitled Troubadours. She’ll be playing with Ladies of the Canyon,
Matt Epp, Luluc and Po’ Girl. “I love Po’ Girl,” says Harmer. “I played with them at Canso last year out in Nova Scotia at the Stan Rogers Folk Festival. I was playing solo so they learned a handful of my songs and backed me up on the mainstage for a bunch of my set. So, I love those wonderful people and I’m looking forward to seeing them and I’m sure between us we’ll all be able to be ‘troubadours.’” While Harmer’s tour and promotion of her new album is keeping her busy, she remains focused on continuing to use her voice, not just for creative expression but also for advocacy, something she feels a certain responsibility for as an artist. She’s keeping close tabs on PERL (perlofburlington.org) as the fall is a big time for the organization. “Every level of government has turned down the quarry proposal but the company still is pushing to go to what’s called a joint board hearing,” says Harmer. Getting underway in October, she estimates the hearing will take more than a year. “We’re really hoping that the province of Ontario, who has the ultimate authority here, recognizes the will of all the levels of government. . . . The province just has to outrightly protect this area,” she says. Harmer has also recently joined a movement focused on saving the nation-wide federal prison farm program, which has shown to be restorative and rehabilitating for offenders, as well as positively inﬂuence host cities, she says. Other well-known Canadian artists have joined the movement (www.saveourprisonfarms.ca), including author Margaret Atwood. While this sort of work is relatively new territory for Harmer, she’s continuing to give it her all, despite the difﬁculty of the work. “It feels good to be in the thick of something that needs our attention and also can really set an important precedent in Ontario,” she says. Other like-minded artists also serve as inspiration. For example, Sunday night, she was among the headliners at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, following Gord Downie and the Country of Miracles, who are touring in support of their new album The Grand Bounce. “I’ve been such a fan of him and the Hip for years,” says Harmer. “His in-between song banter was so great . . . He was really ﬁred up.” Downie opted to introduce
one of his songs by referencing the recent G20 in Toronto. “It didn’t take any energy away from his music or their set, it almost ﬁred it up more,” says Harmer. “It gives it a real anchor in the real world. And I think for people we’ve got to constantly, or at least regularly, remember the work that is going on and tie art to that, and tie music to that, so that it all seems like it’s part of the same life. I think that’s really important.” PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT: *2010 Corolla BU42EM (A) MSRP is $16,875 and includes $1415 freight and pre-delivery inspection, tire levy, battery levy and air conditioning federal excise tax.

Atlas recorded new album with Samy Bishai
From page 28
the TV in the U.K. every Sunday.” As a teenager Atlas began making regular trips to Egypt to visit relatives during summer and winter vacations and took what she heard musically back with her to Europe. When she began performing in bands she became known not only for her singing but also as a belly dancer — a go-to girl for all things Arabic. Nation Records introduced her to Jah Wobble (formerly John Lydon’s partner in Public Image Ltd.) who was interested in starting a band with non-Western elements. “They were looking for somebody to do the Eastern side of things,” says Atlas. “In French it’s called ‘Orientale.’ I introduced the dancing which sort of stuck. Jah Wobble got a belly dancer, an Arabic dancer, even when I wasn’t with them anymore.” Atlas recorded and toured with Wobble’s band Invaders of the Heart during the early ’90s and composed ﬁve songs on the seminal ethnic fusion album Rising Above Bedlam — a project that was way ahead of its time combining ideas from different musical cultures with Western pop production. Purists might balk at messing with tradition but nothing essential was lost in the grooves and Atlas was an integral part of the process. “It seems so long ago now,” she says. “It was an adventure
and it was the very beginning of everything for me. The very beginning of doing this as a profession and I wasn’t sure then whether that was really what I was going to end up doing. In the very beginning of things like that you are very naive about it all but also very excited. It was just a complete adventure and a learning experience. We were in at the very beginning of when it was all happening.” Moving on Atlas continued exploring Eastern and Western fusion as a singer and dancer with the U.K.’s Transglobal Underground. “They were a real collective,” she says. “They didn’t believe in having a leader of the band it was more of a collective thing so you were very free to express your ideas and stuff like that. A wonderful act Transglobal was you know because it allowed for so many personalities. It was a very liberating experience.” Members of the group worked with Atlas on her ﬁrst solo disc, 1995’s Diaspora, and have continued their association with her on various projects ever since. “We have a long-term connection really,” she says. “I think that will always be so because we kind of grew together you know.” Since establishing herself as a solo artist Atlas has recorded several albums that focus on various aspects of Arabic music including 1997’s Halim which pays tribute to one of her favourite cultural ﬁgures, Egyptian actor/singer Abdel Halim Hafez. “His music meant practically everything to me,” says Atlas. “He was such an important ﬁgure in Egypt. He was a very sensitive male
star. He didn’t have a machismo like some of them did. He had a fragility in a way because he was ill all his life and he died quite young. He was sort of a heart throb as well in ﬁlms. He was a great musician and an inspiring artist — when I released Halim it was actually 20 years since the anniversary of his death.” Atlas has just completed a new album, Mounqualiba, that is scheduled to be released in September. She worked with U.K. violinist/string arranger Samy Bishai on the project. “We wrote it together,” she says. “He’s also half-English, half-Egyptian so we were kind of pooling our collective experiences. We basically worked for two weeks in one studio and wrote the music together. Sometimes we’d start with the piano other times we’d start with something else.” Most of the recording is made up of new material but it will feature a couple of covers (Nick Drake’s “River Man” and Françoise Hardy’s “La nuit est sur la ville”) as well as a 400-yearold traditional tune. Atlas has covered Hardy, a favourite of her mother’s, before — “Mon amie la rose” (off the 1999 album Gedida) made a big impact on listeners with the French lyrics ﬁltered through an Arabic soundscape. Atlas is performing on the Vancouver Folk Music Festival’s main stage at Jericho Beach Park Sunday night at 5 p.m. She is also scheduled to participate in several workshops during the weekend with the ﬁrst, Gathering of the Clans, set for Saturday morning at 10 a.m. on Stage 4 with Watcha Clan and Les Boukakes.

McKENZIE - Virginia Johanne nee Eriksen, Sept 11, 1929 to July 4, 2010, and onward! Virginia was born and raised with her three siblings George, Dionne and Dale in West Vancouver by parents Viggo and Evelyn Eriksen. She brilliantly raised her family of five children with husband A.M. (Mac) McKenzie under difficult circumstances at the ideal location of Sandy Cove beach in West Vancouver. Virginia is predeceased by Mac and three of her children; Arden, then Peter, then Charles. She is survived by her ever-loving daughter Rosalind, Son Paul (Lisa), Grandchildren Jeanna, Marika, Adrienne, Mitchell and Laina and Great grandchildren, Sophia and Brooke. Our family extends our heartfelt thanks to many staff of the West Van Inglewood care facility, many staff of Lions Gate hospital and Dr. Paul Sugar for their respective roles in assisting Virginia during the recent years and final days of her life. To honour Virginia, we are pleased to be having a 'Virginia festival' to mark her passing and remember her unwavering, vivacious spirit.

Zombies still not dead after car crash
NEWS photo Cindy Goodman
THE Mazda MX-5, the benchmark for fun-to-drive roadsters, is built and priced to bring owners maximum happiness with minimal regret. It is available at Morrey Mazda in the Northshore Auto Mall.
retractable hard top arrived in 2007, Mazda made it an option across the range so that owners had their choice of trim level and roof — a loaded GT was still $34,500 and the hard top added $2,200. Today, the hard top is standard on the GT, optional on the mid-level GS, and unavailable for the base GX — and that GT model sells for a heady $39,995. At $40,000 the MX-5 GT isn’t quite as satisfying to own as it once was, but we’re not complaining. Even if there were more direct competitors in the market, the MX-5 would still beat them all. Design The MX-5 received a facelift last year, gaining a revised front end with new headlamps and a larger grille similar to that found on newer Mazda vehicles, as well as new side skirts, rear bumper and tail lights. The designers have done a great
Zombies crash car in Portland Being a police ofﬁcer has its moments, I’m sure, but occasionally you’ve just got to deal with the weird stuff. Sometimes that means the undead show up. Okay, so it wasn’t really the undead, just a group of people dressed up for a party who had the misfortune to roll their car on the I-84 in Portland, Ore. But pity the poor ofﬁcer who was ﬁrst on the scene, running up to the window of the ﬂipped car and peering inside to ask, “Is everyone all right in th—argh! Zombies!” Luckily, no one was seriously injured in the crash, although all the fake blood and torn clothes had ambulance attendants worried that the car’s occupants were worse off than they actually were. No word as to the cause of the crash, as there were no other vehicles involved, but perhaps the driver was distracted by a billboard showing Bill Gates with his big, juicy, delicious braaiiiiiinnn. NHSTA says driver error caused majority of Toyota crashes The National Highway Safety Trafﬁc Administration is an independent body that

MX-5 a zoom with a view
IN case you haven’t noticed, we’re running low on affordable, twoseat convertibles.
Columnist DAVID CHAO reviews the 2010 Toyota 4Runner next week in REV
Honda retired the aging S2000 last fall, and the disappointing Chrysler Crossﬁre, Pontiac Solstice, and Saturn Skye roadsters are long gone. In the $30,000 range there’s the Ford Mustang, Mini Cooper, Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder and Volkswagen’s Eos and New Beetle convertibles, all of which are four-seat vehicles. If you want a twoseater there’s the BMW Z4, Inﬁniti G37, Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, Nissan 370Z and Porsche Boxster convertibles . . . but none of those can be considered “affordable.” So it’s a very good thing that we have the Mazda MX-5. Now in its 21st year and third generation, the MX-5 is the best-selling roadster in history, with well over one million units produced since
Behind The Wheel David Chao
1989. It’s the benchmark for a fun-to-drive roadster — the aforementioned Chrysler and GM products all fell short when held up next to it — and, with the optional hard-top roof, is capable of taking on more-expensive counterparts at a fraction of their prices. There are, in short, few cars as satisfying to own and drive as an MX-5 — and there’s an excellent reason for that. Mazda is considered by many to be the most
performance-oriented Japanese automaker, because its vehicles tend to emphasize driving prowess over ride quality. However, it’s more accurate to say that Mazda is the “sportiest” of automakers, favouring sharp handling and quick reﬂexes over big, powerful engines. This is what the “Zoom Zoom” philosophy is all about, and no car embodies that better than the MX-5. As a result, the little roadster is a joy to drive whether you’re heading to the ofﬁce or to the cottage. It’s designed, built and priced with the sole purpose of bringing owners maximum happiness and minimal regret. And in 21 years, Mazda has never lost sight of that simple goal. There’s really only one thing to be concerned about with the 2010 MX-5, and that’s the pricing strategy. When Mazda introduced the current model in 2006, it maxed out at $34,500. When the fantastic, power-

job, keeping the smooth and rounded shape while lessening the pill-shaped proﬁle of the 2008 model. The manual-folding top remains a strength of the MX-5. It’s exceptionally easy to raise and lower, and does away with the annoying tonneau cover. When the top is down, it folds in on itself quite stylishly, looking very ﬁnished and minimizing drag. The power hardtop looks great when stowed, folding in on itself to give the car a clean and ﬁnished appearance, but the unusual bulge of the rear deck (a necessity to ﬁt the roof) looks a bit odd both when the roof is raised and lowered. If top-up style is important to you, the cloth roof might be more desirable. There’s nothing too fancy about the cockpit, which wraps around you the way a roadster should. GX and GS models feature a plain, black interior, while the GT can be had with a choice of black, beige, or brown leather. Overall, it’s a pleasing interior that’s simple, straightforward, and well executed. Performance Every MX-5 comes with a 2.0-litre inlinefour generating 167 horsepower and 140 foot-pounds of torque, attached to a ﬁvespeed (GX) or six-speed manual transmission (a six-speed automatic is optional across the line). The engine is just right for this car — it’s as happy to cruise as it is to accelerate. As with most Mazda transmissions, the sixspeed manual is absolutely fantastic. It’s quick and accurate, with a nice, light clutch that
invites gear changes. With excellent steering and balanced weight distribution, handling is exceptional. The speed-sensitive steering is sharp, but not so much that it’s awkward to drive — this is a truly fun-to-drive car. Interestingly, the extra weight added by the power-retractable hardtop improves the balance, adding weight just aft of the car’s centre. Whereas the GX is more relaxed, the GS and GT add a limited-slip differential, dynamic stability control with traction control, front strut tower bar and a sport suspension. Drivers looking to toss the MX-5 around should deﬁnitely opt for one of the upper trims. As you would expect in a roadster, ride quality is quite stiff and solid. Still, the MX-5 remains surprisingly comfortable to drive over long periods of time, and is a decent car for the daily commute. Environment The dash is simple and functional — dials and buttons are big, easy to ﬁnd, and offer good tactile feel. The steering-mounted audio controls seem a bit superﬂuous, considering that the dashboard is so close, but prevent drivers from having to hunt for buttons. Storage space is as good as it’s going to get in a roadster, with the usual spaces in the glove box, centre console, and behind the seats, as well as four cupholders. The trunk is impressive in that it will just ﬁt a set of golf clubs, but it’s still a tight ﬁt for larger luggage. There’s no question that the hardtop MX5 is quieter and feels sturdier than the soft-top

The hardtop’s operation is ﬂawless, but it takes about 12 seconds to raise and lower the top — about twice the time that the soft top requires. Also, the excellent storage bins behind the seats are lost, though that’s an acceptable trade off. Features A bare-bones GX model starts at $28,995, and the only option (aside from an automatic transmission) is air conditioning. The $33,495 GS offers the choice of a soft top or the $2,295 hard top, and the $39,995 GT comes with everything. Standard features on the mid-level GS include ABS, automatic A/C, four-speaker CD/MP3 stereo, cruise control, tilt steering, remote keyless entry, limited-slip differential, Dynamic Stability Control with traction control, front strut tower bar, sport suspension and front/side airbags. The top-end GT adds Xenon headlamps, leather interior accents, BOSE seven-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, keyless entry and

Take out the rear seat (which barely holds two children, let alone adults), and the Mini is the closest you can get to an MX-5 in terms of price and fun-todrive performance. Volkswagen Eos Starting at $36,575, the Eos is powered by a 2.0-litre inline-four with 200 h.p. and 207 foot-pounds of torque. Alternatively, you can get
a New Beetle Convertible for $29,175 with a 2.5-litre inline-four generating 150 h.p. and 170 foot-pounds of torque.
The Eos’s hard-top roof is an impressive feat of engineering, giving the stylish convertible an air of sophistication and class.
THE Ford Mustang Convertible is similar in price to the MX-5 but they are two very different vehicles.

always banging on about Toyota’s problems, what with their beleaguered CEO bursting into tears all the time and the fact that Toyota products are, on the whole, reliable and safe. So it is with great satisfaction to report that the data recovered by the NHTSA shows that driver error was responsible in all but one out of seventy-ﬁve accidents. Prior to impact, the crash recorders showed full throttle application, indicating that the driver was standing on the accelerator, having got the pedals mixed up.
On one hand, this is good news for Toyota. On the other hand, continue to maintain a safe distance from any Toyotas you might see on the road. Porsche 918 most expensive Porsche ever? When Porsche unveiled its most recent concept car at the Geneva car show, people sat up and took notice.

unique style and even made the 2001 Car and Driver Ten Best List. By 2008, it was the IIHS’s Most Dangerous Small Car in America. Quite simply, the PT Cruiser should have been re-engineered twice by now, keeping it fresh and keeping it competitive. As it stands, it coulda been a contender, but now it wouldn’t voom if you put ten million volts through it. email@example.com
“Just another hypercar for the mega-rich.” Well, you’d only be half-right, as the 918 is actually a hybrid. With two electric motors producing 218 additional h.p., the Spyder does 0-100 km/h in a scant 3.2 seconds, and but only consumes 3 litres/100 kilometres. So, faster than a Ferrari, less thirsty than a Prius, what’s not to like? Will you be able to get one? Well, no, unless you’re currently reading this newspaper whilst wearing diamond-encrusted underpants and seated on your own personal elephant butler.
