Film crew unprepared for B.C. wilderness James Weldon

A German film crew’s expedition to the B.C. wilderness came to a dramatic end this week when they were hauled out of the forest, soaked and hypothermic, by members of North Shore Rescue.

KEN Gerlach paints the target or “house” on the curling rink surface at North Shore Winter Club Sept. 1. The entire rink is flooded, frozen and then levelled with the whole surface painted white and the houses marked out in pencil. Gerlach prefers his old school approach which uses chalk-based paint that freezes and dries on contact and leaves a deep saturated colour. The painted areas are lightly sprayed with water to give them a finished shine. The North Vancouver Recreation Commission partners with the North Shore Winter Club to offer a variety of curling programs and leagues. Visit www.nswc.ca for more details.

The seven-person documentary team set out on foot into the woods Sept. 9, bound for the Terra Rosa Glacier northwest of Harrison Lake. They had no proper raingear and only one tarp between them, and had accidentally left their camp stoves in their vehicles. When the weather took a turn for the worse, the group got drenched. A cold night in the forest in wet sleeping bags left them in a bad state the next day. Several members of the crew soon started to develop hypothermia. Late on the second day of their excursion, with one of the hikers developing an additional medical problem, the group decided to call for help.

Chief Const. Lepine: Save gun registry Benjamin Alldritt

balldritt@nsnews.com

WEST Vancouver police Chief Const. Peter Lepine is appealing to federal politicians to save the long gun registry. “It does have a bearing on this community,” Lepine said. “If that registry disappears, we’re not going to be as safe the day after that happens as we could be.” Canada’s MPs will vote for the third and final time on whether to abolish the 15-year-old registry on Wednesday. The vote is expected to be settled by a very narrow margin. Both John Weston, MP for

West Vancouver’s top cop says registry used 18 times a day

West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country, and North Vancouver MP Andrew Saxton have voted to scrap it at the previous two readings. The police chief said his department uses the long gun registry about 18 times a day, and listed several real-life scenarios that have played out in West Vancouver in which it played a role. The first is in deciding the level of response to an emergency call. “Do we bring the army or my junior police officer?” Lepine asked. “If we’re going to a domestic dispute where violence has been used

and there is a record of violence and there are firearms in the house, we are going to have an extreme physical presence in terms of suiting up to go in there. If that registry disappears, our reaction would be based on an abundance of caution. . . . It may mean that we rely on the assistance of the Vancouver police emergency response team to help us attend the house. That comes at a cost to this community because it’s a service they charge back for.” Having a detailed inventory of the 4,029 registered firearms in West Vancouver helps police with court-ordered seizures of weapons from convicted offenders, said Lepine.

RCMP and Canadian Border Services Agency officers display opium and the Iranian candy packages it was hidden in allegedly found in the luggage of a 21-year-old West Vancouver resident.

RCMP make opium arrest

Nelson Bennett

Richmond News

A 21-year-old West Vancouver man has landed in court after landing in Richmond with five kilograms of opium. Mohammadreza Haratisani was arrested at Vancouver International Airport Sept. 5 for allegedly trying to smuggle the drug — which can be smoked or turned into heroin — into Canada via Iran and Amsterdam. The bust came within days of a large seizure of opium poppy heads in Delta for the production of doda — a mild opiate that is popular in South Asian communities. Canada Border Services officers at Vancouver International Airport became suspicious, based on Haratisani’s points of origin — Tehran via Amsterdam — and his declarations to CBSA officers. “There were inconsistencies in the declaration that he was making,” CBSA officer Lorraine Leger said at a press conference at the Richmond RCMP detachment, where the five kilos of raw opium were on display. She added: “Tehran is known as a trans-shipment point for narcotics.” Haratisani’s luggage was searched and CBSA officers found what they believed to be opium inside boxes of Iranian candy and packages of hookah pipe tobacco. RCMP were called in and Haratisani was arrested. He appeared in court Sept. 7 and was denied bail. He remained in

custody and was to appear again in court Thursday morning to face charges of possession and importation of a controlled substance. Richmond RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said it was unusual to see raw opium seizures in Richmond. Heroin, which is manufactured from opium, is more common. “Opium is quite bulky and chunky and it’s hard to smuggle,” Turley said. “It’s chemically broken down and made into heroin because it is easier to smuggle that way, so I’m not sure why they tried to bring it to Canada like this.” It appears the importation of opium to British Columbia could be on the rise. In the Pacific region, CBSA made 28 seizures of raw opium in 2009 and has already made 45 seizures this year, worth $172 million, Leger said. Turley said police don’t know if the recent seizure of opium was intended to be sold as-is (it can be smoked or eaten), or whether it was intended to be turned into heroin. Nor do RCMP know where the opium originated, although if it was smuggled out of Iran it may have come from Afghanistan. Afghanistan is the top producer of illegal opium in the world, and Iran

has some of the highest rates of opium addiction in the world. Another growing problem in B.C. appears to be the sale of doda in South Asian communities. Doda is made from opium poppy pods and is often brewed as tea. Drivers sometimes use it for the brief buzz it gives them. Just last week, Delta police seized 36,000 opium poppy pods. It was the second such seizure in recent weeks in Delta, and in August RCMP in Chilliwack seized 60,000 opium poppy plants. It’s not the first time that North Shore residents have been arrested in connection with opium smuggling. In January of this year, two North Vancouver men in their 50s were among four people initially arrested in connection with the largest-ever opium seizure in the province. The shipment of 56.8 kilograms of the drug arrived hidden inside a tombstone in an air cargo delivery from Iran on Jan. 6. No charges have yet been laid against any of those people. In a previous opium-smuggling case, Reza Eshghabadi and his wife Ashraf Nabiloo, both North Vancouver residents, were handed two-year jail sentences for importing 1.5 kilograms of opium hidden in picture frames that arrived with a shipment of glassware from Dubai in November of 2003. Another West Vancouver opium smuggler, Navid Pirouz, who smuggled more than three kilograms of the drug into Canada by mailing it to himself inside boxes of chocolate, was handed a conditional sentence in 2008.

Did they notice the WV police station? TWO suspected copper thieves made life easy for the West Vancouver police Sunday when they allegedly tried to steal wire from a construction site next door to the police station.

Officers responded to the area near the tennis courts at the corner of Bellevue Avenue and 13th Street just before 1 p.m. when a passerby called to report men hauling heavy-gauge wire into the bushes. One officer jumped out of a cruiser that

was just metres away and ran to the spot, while others rushed to the scene from the station itself. “I’d say we were there in less than 20 seconds,” said Cpl. Jag Johal, a spokesman for the WVPD who was involved in the response. Police arrived to find the wire, intended to be used in the construction of an artificial turf field in Ambleside Park, already loaded in the back of the men’s truck, said Johal. The officers arrested the suspects and took them back to the station. A collapsible

baton was also seized at the scene. “Sometimes, some of the calls we get, they just boggle the mind,” said Johal. Police are recommending charges of theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property against a 50-year-old North Vancouver man and a 46-year-old man from Washington. Both have been released on a promise to appear in court. Johal said the alleged theft wasn’t seen directly from the station because the site is screened by a three-metre-high hedge. — James Weldon

some reason were unable to dial 9-1-1. Desperate, the crew dug up a receipt for equipment they had bought in Squamish and called the phone number printed on it. A clerk at the store passed their distress call on to emergency services. Rescue organizations based near Harrison Lake were busy on other searches, so the task fell to North Shore Rescue. With night approaching and the weather worsening, the volunteer team scrambled to get into the air. Three members piled into a pair of Talon helicopters, which flew up a valley system to avoid thick cloud cover and reached the area of the glacier at about 7:30 p.m. As they approached, the team sounded sirens in an effort to locate the hikers, and soon saw LED lights flashed in response. The aircraft touched down. With no space for extra equipment, the rescuers threw the victims’ backpacks into a pile at the site where they could be picked up later and loaded the hikers aboard. The choppers made it out to the drop-off point minutes before the light failed. “It was basically a grab-and-go type situation,” said search manager Tim Jones. “On a scale of one to 10 for emergencies, it was a 10. They would have had a very rough night. They only had one tarp between seven of them.” The film crew had left their credit cards and cash with their packs, so North Shore Rescue put the victims up at a North Vancouver hotel for the night and retrieved their gear the next day. The call came on a busy weekend for the organization. On Saturday, a North Shore flight rescue team helped Coquitlam Search and Rescue with the final stages of the search for Tyler Wright, a Vancouver hiker who vanished in the forest east of Squamish more than a month ago. The operation, believed to be the biggest in the province’s history, was officially called off Aug. 29, but a few difficult-to-reach areas remained to be checked. Team members were lowered by long line from a helicopter to survey those spots on the weekend. They found no trace of the 35-year-old. On Monday, North Shore Rescue was out in the field again, this time assisting Pemberton Search and Rescue in their hunt for a missing Vancouver couple. The woman, 25, and the man, 35, left the alpine town Sept. 4, bound for an area to the north called Saxifrage Peak. They left their car on a logging road, planning to hike the area and summit some peaks there before returning. The pair were reported overdue Sept. 7. A search was launched the following day. Eight members of North Shore Rescue joined the effort this week, together with teams from a number of other regions on the south coast. The operation is ongoing. So far rescuers have found no sign of the missing pair. The couple were well equipped, but didn’t have a map or compass. Jones believes they may have become disoriented when a storm system descended on the area during the first day of their hike. “You get up in that alpine area, and you’re socked in by clouds, you may not know which direction is north, east, west or south,” he said. “You get sucked into (creek) drainages. It’s so easy for it to happen.” The teams haven’t given up hope, but Jones believes the odds of finding them alive are becoming increasingly slim.

Fraudsters plead guilty

TWO men have pleaded guilty in B.C. Supreme Court to ripping off two aboriginal organizations of more than $900,000.

Craig Ashley Morrison, 33, and Dennis James Wells, 55, both pleaded guilty Sept. 13 to two counts of fraud over $5,000 against the Aboriginal Council of B.C. and the B.C. Aboriginal Fisheries Commission. The pair is accused of pilfering money from the organizations for three years between November 2002 and December 2005. Morrison was the bookkeeper for both organizations, which stopped operating a while after the money went missing. The Aboriginal Council of B.C. and the B.C. Aboriginal Fisheries Commission were both created in the mid-1980s and were funded by the federal government. The aboriginal council provided funding to First Nations for research on treaty land claims. The fisheries commission was financed by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and worked to protect and enhance aboriginal fishing rights. In 2005, staff members of the two West Vancouver-based organizations were told they would have to be laid off because the organizations didn’t have any money. Subsequently, they were called back to go through paperwork to find out why the groups were broke. That’s when they realized a lot of money was missing. Morrison and Wells pleaded guilty Monday before Justice Jennifer Power, on the day their trial on fraud charges was set to begin. A sentencing hearing has been set for Jan. 13 next year. Until then, both men remain out of custody.

Noisy new highway keeps residents awake Niamh Scallan

District Dialogue

A group of West Vancouver residents fed up with noise coming from the four-lane highway near their properties rallied for councillors’ support at a district council meeting Monday evening.

Attention Cyclists!

In our continued efforts to create safe, accessible bike routes for cyclists of all abilities, the District is hard at work on a variety of bike projects throughout the District. Here are some of the projects we are currently working on.

Interested in learning more about bike projects throughout the District? Visit www.dnv.org/bikeprojects for detailed information.

Join the Friends of Hunter Park, and Mayor Richard Walton Saturday, October 9 at 10:00 a.m. for the unveiling of a new sign officially naming Hunter Park. Please meet at the Chaucer Road main park entrance. You’re also invited to participate in the pulling of invasive plants and planting of native plants. All ages are welcome. Please bring gardening gloves and something to drink. Refreshments and tools will be supplied. The Arts Office is offering three information workshops in September on the various grants programs they administer. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about Arts Office grants programs! This workshop is designed to provide you with important information about: municipal grants policy; the application forms; the peer assessment process; and eligibility requirements. Workshops are being held: Monday, September 20, 2:00p.m., at John Braithwaite Community Centre; Tuesday, September 21, 6:45 p.m., at Parkgate Library; and Saturday, September 25, 10:15 a.m., at Lynn Valley Library. Please RSVP by September 18, 2:00 p.m. by emailing info@artsoffice.ca or calling 604-980-3559.

Mark your calendars! The District is hosting a huge Garage Sale and Pancake Breakfast (courtesy Lynn Valley Lions) to kick off our annual United Way Fundraising Campaign. Come to District Hall (355 West Queens Rd.) Saturday, September 25 from 9:30a.m. – 1:00p.m. and see what sort of treasures you can find. All proceeds go the United Way.

Marine Drive: In August, the District installed wide curb lanes in both directions, from MacKay Road to Tatlow Avenue. By March 2011 the wider lanes will be implemented westward all the way to the Lions Gate Bridge making Marine Drive one of the most direct east-west routes to the bridge. Wide curb lanes allow cyclists to share the lane with most vehicles. This route is intended for more confident cyclists who are comfortable with sharing the lane with other vehicles. West 15th Street: This lower volume residential road is an excellent alternate, parallel route to Marine Drive. West 15th Street is a traffic calmed street with speed humps, a raised crosswalk, and a cyclist activated signal at Pemberton Avenue. Further traffic calming is planned for this area in 2011. This route is suitable for a wide range of cyclists. West 1st Street: The West 1st Street bike route, which extends from the City of North Vancouver border at MacKay Road to Garden Avenue, is geared towards cyclists who prefer a fast route with minimal stops. Many commuter cyclists who travel between North Vancouver and downtown Vancouver use this route. This year, the District is planning to install buffered bike lanes in both directions along this route to enhance safety for cyclists. A buffered bike lane is an enhanced bike lane that provides additional separation between the vehicle lane and bike lane. The buffered bike lanes planned for West 1st Street will feature an additional two-foot wide painted buffer zone between the bike lane and vehicle travel lane. This is one of the most well-used cycling corridors in the District. Spirit Trail: The Spirit Trail will be a multi-use pathway that is intended for slower moving recreational cyclists and pedestrians. This route will eventually connect Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove. Construction on the western section of the Spirit Trail is expected to begin later this year, with completion by the end of 2011. Capilano Road is a major north-south bike route that is well used by commuter cyclists. This year, the District will be installing bike lanes in both directions, between Fullerton Avenue and Highway 1. The bike lanes will be painted green to enhance safety and awareness of cyclists. This is the first phase in the provision of bike lanes along the entire Capilano Road Corridor, and in improvements to the routes leading towards Capilano Road. Once the improvements are complete, Capilano Road will be more appealing to a wider range of cyclists. To find out more about our ongoing bike projects please visit www.dnv.org/ bikeprojects.

Tips for other road users (courtesy ICBC) Keep your eyes peeled: As a road user, it is important that you always actively look for cyclists in traffic – especially in the spring and summer months when there are more of them on the road. Wherever possible, make eye contact with the cyclist to let them know you have seen him – a cyclist often relies on eye contact as a means of communication as they try to anticipate your next move. Put things in perspective: It is often difficult to judge the correct distance between your spot on the road and a bicycle as it is approaching, particularly when turning left. Be extra cautious of cyclists, especially when turning at intersections. Before you pass another vehicle, make sure you check for oncoming cyclists and bicycles ahead of the vehicle you are passing. Don’t get close: Drivers need to pay attention and yield to people on bikes and, must keep at least three seconds of following distance. Bicycle movements can be unpredictable so an increased distance will give you more time to safely react. Keep out: Bicycle lanes are reserved for cyclists – do not drive, stop or park in a bicycle lane. Sometimes you will need to cross a bicycle lane to turn right, or to pull to the side of the road. When you need to do so, take extra care – be sure to signal well ahead and remember to always yield to cyclists. Be considerate: Like pedestrians, cyclists are vulnerable road users and don’t have the protection drivers have – both in terms of the shell of their vehicle and their seatbelt. Don’t honk your horn at a cyclist unless you need to give them a warning. A loud honk could startle them or even cause them to fall.

More than 50 residents filled council chamber seats to support a petition calling for action against traffic noise from Highway 99, a highway also known as the Sea-to-Sky that connects Vancouver to Whistler. The petition, signed by 180 people and addressed to MLA Joan McIntyre, outlined residents’ anger with high levels of noise pollution in their neighbourhoods since the four-lane highway opened April 2009. “I woke up at 4 a.m. today as normal — and weekends are worse,” petition organizer and Citrus Wynd resident Alan Raffie told councillors during the public comment period. “On Sunday afternoons between 12 and 7 p.m., we cannot stay out on the patios . . . we have problems understanding each other talking because of the noise levels.” The throng of frustrated residents supported Raffie, including those living in Seascapes, a housing development overlooking the highway. President of Seascapes strata council Ashley Robinson told council that many residents’ ability to enjoy the outdoors and fall asleep at night has been put on hold since the four-lane highway opened last year. “We understand that West Vancouver and council had some responsibilities when this highway was developed, one of which was to hold a public consultation with the Ministry of Transportation,” he said. “As far as we know, that didn’t happen.” Coun. Bill Soprovich received several rounds of applause from frustrated residents in the audience for his aggressive support of the petition. “I ask that we take this extremely seriously,” Soprovich said. “No person in our community should have to lose sleep or to sell their home because of something that was put in by the provincial government.” Mayor Pam Goldsmith-Jones reminded councillors and residents that the petition, a provincial matter, lies outside council’s jurisdiction. But she offered residents support from West Vancouver as they take their concerns to the Ministry of Transportation. “Our goal will be to work together and to represent you,” Mayor Goldsmith-Jones said. “In my experience, if we take that approach with our MLA and the ministry, we have some hope for success.”

United Way after-school program to expand Manisha Krishnan mkrishnan@nsnews.com

A United Way program that offers extracurricular activities for pre-teens will be extended to five more schools on the North Shore this fall thanks to a $50,000 grant from the third annual North Shore Mayor’s Golf Tournament.

North Shore Community Resources rolled out a pilot version of the Middle Childhood Matters program in 2007 with the intention of giving kids aged 10-12 a chance to participate in crafts, cooking lessons, leadership opportunities and outdoor activities. The program’s importance is backed up by a UBC study led by child development expert Kimberly Schonert-Reichl that shows that children in their middle years experience an increase in social isolation. “Many of the children didn’t feel they had strong connections to adults in their schools or in their communities,” said Fran Jones, program co-ordinator. “As the children, particularly the boys, approached Grade 7, there was a significant decline in their feelings of self-worth, feelings that they had competencies and their feelings that their lives were going to have positive outcomes.” Research also showed a dependence on technology for many of the children. “They needed to be outside doing physical activities, connecting to peers,” said Jones. Through the program, kids are given something constructive to do once a week after school, usually on site to avoid transportation issues, says Jones. Something Cool for After School, an annual fair sponsored by Middle Childhood Matters, will be held at Capilano Mall, Saturday, Sept. 18, noon-4 p.m. Exhibitors will be available to demonstrate different after-school activities available for kids.

the registry records give officers a place to start in their investigation, he said. “The next one is public safety. We get calls from mentalhealth providers saying ‘We’re concerned about a particular individual.’ We’ll do that check and go and seize (their firearms) so they don’t harm themselves or someone else. We occasionally will get calls from people saying ‘I’m reading my friend’s Facebook page and they’re talking about striking out at people.’ It may be a very innocent comment, but we’re obligated to do an investigation and we query that house and we query that person and if there is a long gun in the house we have a duty to protect. We’re knocking at the door and we’re making very pointed comments to the parents of this young person, saying, ‘This is what your child is going through right now and by the way, you do have a long gun, don’t you?’” Setting up the registry ran notoriously over budget, reaching nearly $1 billion, according to the federal auditor general. Police say that maintaining and operating the registry today costs the taxpayer $4 million annually. Aside from the financial aspect, opponents of the registry say it is useless at locating illegally held firearms and criminalizes law-abiding citizens who refuse or forget to register their rifle or shotgun. “That is absolutely not the case,” Lepine said. “These people who would object to

Chief Const. Peter Lepine

John Weston, MP

registering their long gun have absolutely no problem registering their car. Where’s the logic in that? If you were to take these arguments and swap the words ‘long gun’ for ‘motor vehicle,’ people would look at you and say, ‘Are you nuts?’” The subject of fierce partisan debate, the registry’s future will likely be decided by a handful of rural New Democrats. Lepine said he regretted that the issue had become so politicized. “It’s not one particular party. It’s not a personal criticism of John Weston. I like the guy, and we have worked together to advance his private member’s bill (which would criminalize possession of crystal meth precursors). But these same arguments could be made around precursor materials, or the registration of cars or the registration of dogs.” “I would hope that they would do a comprehensive study around the value of the long gun registry and make a decision

based on community safety needs as opposed to political needs,” Lepine said. “This is what pits east against west, rural against urban, and that’s not a good reason why. If the politicians feel we’re infringing on rights or they feel there is no value to it, the fact of the matter is that it’s the police who have to go out and do the work. Being apolitical, I’ll be very frank: it’s not the politicians. I owe it to this community and I owe it to my police officers to put it on the record.” Weston praised Lepine for building community ties during his first year on the job in West Vancouver and thanked him for supporting the anti-meth bill, but said he disagreed with the chief constable’s views on the registry. “We all support the licensing of people who own firearms and the registration of prohibited or restricted weapons (such as handguns). That’s not going

to change; this Conservative government is unwavering in that. We know full well that criminals don’t register their guns and that’s what makes the long gun registry wasteful and ineffective,” said Weston. “This is a big distraction. It has been politicized. There is an unfortunate need for the Liberals to defend their waste of the $2 billion by continually coming up with justifications. There’s an Angus Reid poll that says 72 per cent of Canadians want the registry scrapped. There was a nationwide survey of rank-andfile police officers that said 92 per cent of them thought the registry was ineffective.” In fact, the Aug. 24 Angus Reid poll of 1,005 Canadians reported that 44 per cent favoured scrapping the registry, with 35 per cent opposed and 21 per cent unsure. The police survey was an unscientific online poll conducted by an Edmonton officer on a police chat forum. The forum’s operator later disavowed the survey, calling the results “mixed and inconclusive.” Weston had no specific response to Lepine’s scenarios or the car registration analogy. “The answer remains that we don’t have any documented cases — that I know of — where the registry has performed its avowed purpose,” he said. “In each case, if you look closely the registry would not have saved the victim. It’s not doing its job. All it’s doing is intruding on the liberties of Canadian farmers, duck hunters, and other lawabiding gun owners.”

HETHER the HST survives next year’s referendum or not, it’s possible the unpopular tax will ultimately help British Columbia — but not in a way anticipated by the B.C. Liberals. The response to the province’s bungled effort at harmonization has been breathtaking. Notoriously apathetic British Columbians have been so incensed by it that 700,000 of them — more than 15 per cent of the populace — signed a petition demanding it be repealed. That anger has translated into a huge boost for the provincial Conservatives, who until this year were a laughing stock. A poll this week put support for the party at 11 per cent of decided voters. As many commentators have pointed out, that’s enough ballots to

significantly alter the outcome of the next election — enough to split the right and spring the NDP into power. That’s not, however, where the benefit lies. The B.C. Liberals, bloodied by an election loss and harried by a new, viable right-wing competitor, will be forced to move to the centre; to get back to power, they will have to draw moderates back from the NDP. For the first time in decades, British Columbians would no longer have to choose between extremes. It’s possible we’ll have a party that makes a serious effort to balance the interests of business with those of individuals, that fosters investment without sacrificing the environment or the disenfranchised. For such an improvement to our political landscape, the HST would be a small price to pay.

Kitchen oracle speaks economic truth

LET’S get serious. Our family grocery bill for August was $1,091.25.

And yours? My wife was shocked when she added up the figures. We have never budgeted. I always considered budgeting beneath the dignity of West Vancouver residents. Little levity there. But I genuinely can’t figure out how a lot of “average” Canadians are making ends meet these days. I cite our own grocery bills only because they are handy and embarrass no one but my unembarrassable self. To be sure, the $1,100-odd includes the bill for spirituous liquors and wine ($136.99), which I consider part of a healthy person’s proper diet. But it excludes some cash outlays, like for fresh produce at the one-man farmer’s market off West Vancouver’s 31st Street near Marine Drive. And our supermarket purchases don’t involve expensive cuts of meat. We are quasi-vegetarians, in recent months becoming more quasi, guiltily slipping

This Just In

Others, who buy deliriously expensive cheeses, not Safeway’s excellent-value white cheddar ($1.79 per hundred grams) like us, and consider $25 wines their everyday plonk, derisive of the four-litre boxes we buy, might feel so sorry for us that they’ll quietly leave a donation at our door. (A friend warmly advocated

a new brand of gin costing “only pennies more” than the Gordon’s, Beefeater, Gilbey’s I buy. It turned out to be almost twice as expensive as those common gins.) The media report on “the economy” and use terms like “the recession” and quote the official “inflation rate” — a figure so patently bogus, so ridiculously selective (real estate, for good example, excluded), that a government that’s supposed to be open and democratic should be ashamed of it. It’s as cooked as statistics from dictatorships. Ottawa has a hard-eyed interest in keeping the numbers artificially low, partly to restrain indexed pensions and other outlays. Those stuffy phrases, solemn talking-heads on TV, radio interviews, business-page stories and op-ed page pieces don’t reveal the subjective truth for many Canadians — the truth of the kitchen, you might say. Behind closed doors, even on the affluent North Shore, there has surely been a lot of pulling in of belts, perhaps

literally, since the “recession” (another stiff-lipped word) struck a couple of years ago and hasn’t departed for many people. There’s a story behind every old woman or man picking out coins from a change purse for a few small items at the supermarket checkout. I went through our own costs. First, the family census is like an accordion, membership expanding and contracting irregularly. The core members are two people, two dogs, a cat, and two birds, the latter apparently aiming for the Guinness book’s longevity record. (Pets are awesomely expensive. A woman walking her tiny poopsie at Ambleside Beach the other day casually mentioned that she paid $87 a month for pet health insurance.) In August, we had all three of our young-adult children at home, raising the usual grocery bill. One bunked in to take a two-week professional course — alarmingly expensive: In my youth it could have paid

almost the entire four-year undergraduate tuition for all three children. The finance ministers, the chief economists for the banks, the experts of the Conference Board of Canada and the C. D. Howe Institute (named for a politician who once famously sneered “What’s a million?” — which now seems remarkably prophetic) are still largely insulated from the storm, like wealthy journalists such as me. But there are a lot of anxious faces out there, especially outside of anomalous Vancouver — people living pension/paycheque to pension/paycheque. That’s to say nothing of the educated young, many under-employed if they’re employed at all. My young financial adviser suggests investing in Chinese bonds. Can you believe? ••• Last week I gently invited the North Shore’s four Liberals MLAs — much-liked Ralph Sultan, mediocrity Joan McIntyre, nice newcomer

Naomi Yamamoto, and already baggage-laden Jane Thornthwaite — to state their views on the leadership of the premier. No responses so far. None likely after the most recent turn of events. If they weren’t done like dinner before, Gordon Campbell and the B.C. Liberals he’s dragging with him are toast for the next election — to mix culinary metaphors. Campbell’s lackeys’ decision to submit the Harmonized Sales Tax issue to a $30-million referendum rather than face up to a free vote in the legislature is — I never dreamt I’d write this — more disgraceful than anything the New Democrats did in power. An informed public debate and submitting the HST to the legislature initially would have settled the matter. A whole year of confusion and tax-influenced strategies, not to mention an expanding pay-cash-no-tax marketplace, lies ahead. In the next election, the Liberals — notwithstanding See Sports page 11

ALR offers food for thought

IT didn’t get nearly the kind of sustained news coverage it deserved, but the report by B.C. auditor-general John Doyle on the state of the province’s Agriculture Land Reserve should be cause for concern.

Doyle raised two key issues that have the potential of seriously threatening the ALR’s future viability and value. First, he notes the budget for the Agriculture Land Commission has dramatically declined in recent years, thus impairing the commission’s ability to ensure preservation of land and monitoring compliance of regulations. Second, he notes that while the total amount of land in the reserve has remained relatively stable over the years, a significant amount of prime farmland has been taken out while less-valuable land in the north has been added. The ALR was established in 1973 by the New Democratic Party government of the day. Along with the creation of the Labour Relations Board and the Insurance Corp. of B.C., establishing the ALR has to rank as one of the lasting legacies of that government. At a time when ensuring an ongoing food supply becomes

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

more and more important (as climate change begins to alter agriculture practices around the world) it is critical that British Columbia’s lush and precious farmland be protected. Doyle, who is quickly earning a reputation as a no-nonsense, independent watchdog of government, points out the annual budget for the commission has shrunk from almost $3 million at the beginning of this government’s first term to barely more than $2 million. That’s a cut of one-third and it has led to fewer staff and resources, which makes ongoing preservation of farmland that much harder to accomplish. The loss of prime farmland is even more worrisome. Since the ALR’s creation, Vancouver Island has lost 13 per cent of its prime farmland, while

the Okanagan has lost 12 per cent and the Lower Mainland (primarily the Fraser Valley) has lost eight per cent. The development pressures that come with population growth are mostly to blame for the loss of good farmland. When the ALR was first established, for example, places such as Surrey, Delta and Langley were barely populated compared to the number of people who live there now. Whole farms have been replaced by huge subdivisions and highway projects. (I remember a large sheep and vegetable farm being directly across the road from my grandparents’ home on Saltspring Island; a parking lot, tennis courts and a soccer field are there now.) Some of the land-use fights have been memorable: the Spetifore Lands in Delta, Six Mile Ranch near Kamloops, Fantasy Gardens and Terra Nova in Richmond and Colony Farms in Coquitlam all created a lot of headlines over the years. The picture is not entirely gloomy, however. Agriculture Minister Steve Thomson seems to get the idea that more has to be done to protect the ALR. Thomson, who comes from a farming family, is a former executive director of the B.C. Agriculture Council and he has emerged as one of the steadiest

hands in the B.C. Liberal government. He has asked the new chairman of the ALC, Richard Bullock, to tour the province and meet with agriculture groups and other stakeholders to get a sense of the challenges faced by the ALC. Bullock is supposed to file a report in October. Hopefully, what he discovers on his factfinding tour will spur the B.C. government to not only restore the funding to the ALC, but to take steps to stop prime farmland from being turned into blacktop. There’s no question more housing and transportation networks will have to be built in the years ahead. And it’s more than likely that some ALR land will form part of future treaties with First Nations bands. But Doyle’s report is a timely reminder that protecting our food supply should be of paramount importance. I suspect the NDP will make preserving the ALR a key part of its election platform come 2013. If that party does indeed gain power, it will be interesting to see if it takes a look back at the record of its predecessor in the 1970s to gain a sense of proper priorities. KBaldrey@globaltv.com

Joint LED project tees off at Northlands

DNV partners with Korean firm to showcase light technology Benjamin Alldritt balldritt@nsnews.com

HOW many taxpayers does it take to change a lightbulb? Not very many when it comes to the District of North Vancouver’s Northlands Golf Course, where all the clubhouse interior lights are being replaced with cutting-edge lightemitting diodes. The LEDs themselves were supplied for free by the manufacturer and the district is hoping BC Hydro will help pay for the installation labour. District staff began investigating lighting upgrades last year as part of a district-wide effort to cut back on energy spending. What’s more, Northlands is working to market itself as “the greenest golf course.” “We happened to be talking to a company that was looking for a showcase for their products,” said Martin Kruysse, the district’s manager of strategic economic initiatives. “So we said ‘If you replace all of our lights, we’ll showcase your products for you.’ Mantra Energy Group agreed to do this.” Mantra is the Canadian agent for a Korean firm, Fawoo Technologies, that is looking to expand its LED business into

North America. Mantra provided $25,000-worth of various LEDs for the Northlands clubhouse. “It’s an architecturally marvellous building. It has many different types of lights; it has halogen lights and spot-light and pot-light fluorescents and tube-light fluorescents and so on. So we needed to figure out how to replace each of those properly,” Kruysse said. “We’re tickled pink with it. Our customers are very happy with it — it provides a nice ambience in the clubhouse — and the staff in the kitchen are very happy with the quality of the lighting.” With the easily replaced bulbs already changed, the district plans to spend “a few thousand” dollars in labour to rewire fixtures for the more complicated replacements. But the municipality is applying for these costs to be covered by BC Hydro, which is eager to encourage similar demonstration projects. “We want to make sure the entire facility is converted and make sure everything works, and at that point we will probably erect a little bit of signage and the company will hopefully bring some of their potential customers there,” Kruysse said. But a few extra foursomes at the district-owned course aren’t the only benefit to North Vancouver taxpayers, he said. The LEDs will last far longer than conventional bulbs — as long as 15 years — which will save labour costs in the long term. The expected 80 per cent drop in lighting electricity usage should save 27 kW-h, or $1,875 annually. Energy manager Dominica Babicki said the district will check on the actual savings after one year has passed. If the project is deemed a success, the district may start swapping the lights in other municipal buildings.

“This is the biggest shift since the light bulb was first invented,” she said. “It’s like going from a typewriter to a PC, that’s how big this change is.” Of course the district won’t be getting the next batch of LEDs for free, but Babicki said it’s hard to say how the economics will stack up when the district has to pay market price for the lights. But with most major lighting manufacturers moving towards LEDs, prices should fall before the district is looking to refit another building. “The computer analogy works well,” she said. “When computers first came out they were very expensive. But very quickly, the computer went from many thousands to the $1,500mark and then stabilized.”

INQUIRING REPORTER NEXT fall, we, the people, will get an opportunity to voice — and actually have heard — our opinion on the harmonized sales tax, which has evoked controversy and upset among taxpayers since it’s inception. On Tuesday, the B.C. Liberals announced that a referendum to decide the future of the HST will be held Sept. 24, 2011. Premier Gordon Campbell clarified that if 50 per cent of those who vote agree to eliminate the HST, it will be scrapped. Critics argue that a referendum should take place immediately, and point to the high cost of holding an electionstyle referendum. — Kerry Blackadar

Ellie Stockner West Vancouver Yes. I think it is important for the people of B.C. to have an input into this decision, because it has made a difference in purchasing in many areas. I think we have not had a say. . . .

Notice Of Highway Closure And Disposition 2200 Block Marine Drive BYLAW NO. 4659, 2010

The District of West Vancouver (the“District”) gives notice of its intention to close to traffic certain unimproved road allowance between 2200 block of Marine Drive and the 2200 block of Fulton Avenue, shown outlined in bold on“Sketch A”and labelled as“CLOSED LANE”(referred to in this notice as the “Unimproved Lane”), and remove its dedication as a highway. The Unimproved Road has an area of 510.0 square meters, more or less. The bylaw closing the Unimproved Lane and removing its dedication will be considered by the Council at its regular meeting at the Municipal Hall, 750 – 17th Street, West Vancouver, on October 4th, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. Persons who consider they are affected by the bylaw will be provided an opportunity to make representations to Council at the meeting or by delivering a written submission prior to the meeting. The proposed closure of the Unimproved Lane will facilitate the reconfiguration of John Richardson Park and the creation of a District-owned development site. The planned reconfiguration of John Richardson Park is generally as shown on “Sketch B”. This reconfiguration will require the approval of the electors of the District by way of an alternative approval process. The District intends

to close and raise title to the Unimproved Lane (which has no practical use as road) pending the outcome of the alternative approval process. All inquires regarding the foregoing road may be directed to Mr. Gordon Reid, Land Agent, District of West Vancouver, 750 – 17th Street West Vancouver, B.C. V7V 3T3, telephone: (604) 925 7067, fax: (604) 925 6083. Copies of the proposed bylaw, and other related documents may be inspected from September 14, 2010 to October 4, 2010 at the Municipal Hall on regular business days (Monday to Friday except for statutory holidays) between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Do you agree with the referendum on HST next fall?

Hamish Jackson North Vancouver Yes. The referendum should not be postponed for a year, because a lot of things can change in a year, and meanwhile the prices having been moving up with the HST.

Mike Haskins North Vancouver Certainly. I don’t agree with how long the referendum will take, and why it was even in in the first place is beyond me. It’s a joke.

Bomb scare on board ferry

AMID the aroma of scrambled eggs and bacon Tuesday, what appeared to be an abandoned suitcase remained in the cafeteria of the Queen of Oak Bay.

The sight raised alarm bells among B.C. Ferries staff — and led to the cancellation of two ferry sailings. Shortly after the ship’s arrival at Horseshoe Bay at 10:20 a.m., ferry staff alerted the West Vancouver police, claiming that they were treating the luggage as a possible bomb, a call that fortunately turned out to be unfounded. Members of the RCMP’s Explosive Disposal Unit (EDU) were called to assist and upon

further inspection, confirmed that the suitcase was not a bomb, but merely an empty briefcase. Passengers were allowed to depart prior to clearing up the matter, said Marshall. “The incident took approximately two hours to clear up,” said B.C. Ferries spokeswoman, Deborah Marshall. WVPD spokesman Cpl. Jag Johal said police have to treat such incidents seriously. “We do air on the side of caution, and if B.C. Ferries staff deems something to be a threat, then we must respond to that.” Marshall confirmed that a suitcase would not be always considered a threat. — Kerry Blackadar

Sports writer Jim Taylor wins Hutchison award From page 6

their many good earlier initiatives — deserve to drop somewhere behind the Radical Vegetarian Party. ••• A reader scolds me for the item knocking the RCMP for shrugging off a dangerous Squamish reserve crack house as a problem for the natives to deal with. “While I certainly sympathize with the natives living near this crack house with the inherent low-lifes and criminals that frequent it,” he writes, “it must be pointed out that for decades the native reserves have been pushing the white man’s enforcement and punishment out of their communities, and have been implementing their own ‘healing’ processes. The natives cannot expect to have their cake and eat it, too.” A well-taken point and heartily conceded, allowing that it isn’t just them. Every group, every human being who treads the earth wants to have their cake and eat it too, and make bread pudding out of the crumbs.

Months have passed and the issue won’t go away. Worse, the government was caught out in falsely claiming that making the long form voluntary was Statistics Canada’s proposal. The angry, principled resignation of chief statistician Munir Sheikh sank the government narrative. What no one seems to have noticed is the human factor. Some people like telling all about themselves. They’re flattered. Workplace analysts long ago learned that employees feel a rise in esteem when they see their work is important enough to be studied. It’s like the thrill of seeing your name in print, though I can’t see the magic of it myself.

••• What a good idea — creating a 3-D image of a child playing ball on the road approaching Ecole Pauline Johnson, startling drivers with a sober slow-down message. It’s amusing that this brought more attention to West Vancouver, including coverage by CNN in the U.S., than much weightier matters.

••• Extra, extra, read all about it! West Vancouver sports writer makes history! Jim Taylor, already in three sports halls of fame and with an earlier national lifetime achievement award, becomes the first sports writer to receive the coveted Bruce Hutchison Award for his life’s toil in what its denizens cynically call “the toy department.” In fact some of the best journalists began, and some stayed, in sports. Coincidentally, Taylor’s 14th book, And to Think I Got in Free! Highlights from Fifty Years on the Sports Beat (Harbour Publishing), soon will appear at bookstores near you. Little inside joke in the first para. CKNW lavishly reported Taylor’s triumph. No ink at all at this writing in the two downtown dailies, where Taylor wrote for a total of 30 years.

VANCOUVER CITY DANCE THEATRE

■ The Dali Universe, a multimedia ballet set in the surreal world of Spanish painter Salvador Dali, presented by the Vancouver City Dance Theatre, tonight at 8 p.m. and Sept. 18 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., at the Vancouver Playhouse. Tickets: $25-$65 through www.ticketmaster.ca.

Erin McPhee emcphee@nsnews.com

A West Vancouver couple hopes their introduction of a professional dance company helps Vancouver become known worldwide as a new Renaissance city for the 21st century. Roberta Baseggio and Enrico Sorrentino recently launched the Vancouver City Dance Theatre, a nonprofit ballet company. Its inaugural production, The Dali Universe, opened last night at the Vancouver Playhouse and performances are set for today and tomorrow. From Italy, the couple moved to Victoria three years ago and the North Shore five months ago. “We really think that Vancouver is the best place to start a project like this,” says Baseggio. She and her husband considered moving to various cities around the world, though ultimately decided on Vancouver, feeling it would not only be a great place to raise a family, but were strongly attracted to its innovative arts community, residents’ new media technology expertise and incredible

natural environment. Baseggio serves as artistic director and choreographer, drawing on her impressive career as a dancer — some highlights include having studied at the National Dance Academy of Rome and serving as soloist and principal dancer with a number of companies in Europe. Her husband, a doctor, serves as executive director. They founded the company with the principals of the “new Renaissance” at the top of their mind, says Sorrentino. They view the arts, in their ability to draw upon past and present cultures, as having the potential to help citizens understand the world around them and their role in making it a better place. The performing arts also have the power to act as a mode of communication and are capable of conveying messages to audiences around the world. That said, multiculturalism is extremely important. Sorrentino and Baseggio hope to involve all community members in their company in the hopes of having it become a cultural leader and serve as a model for future arts organizations and their potential power. “We think that Vancouver is at the ideal place now on the earth where an initiative like that is possible,” says Sorrentino. The Dali Universe, an original work choreographed by Baseggio, is reflective of the couple’s vision on all counts. “We have created an exciting full length theatrical dance production that combines dance, music, cinematography, design, fashion and new

media technology,” she says. The work is performed by 17 dancers, including National Ballet of Canada principals Sonya Rodriguez and Piotr Stanczyk, six from Italy and a few from B.C. “Having them together, it’s been really exciting,” says Baseggio. The show features a characterization of Sigmund Freud and explores whether our dreams can help us better understand our lives. “We go through the Dali world, a surrealistic atmosphere where fantasy and reality are fused,” says Baseggio. After its Vancouver run, The Dali Universe will be performed in Victoria on Dec. 17. The production is set to tour Spain in early 2011 followed by some additional Canadian performances. Next fall, Baseggio and Sorrentino plan to mount the famed ballet Swan Lake, staying true to the original work, though putting their unique spin on it, incorporating a wide variety of artistic mediums. They’re working out the details of educational programs and exchanges, and currently forging partnerships between their company, academies around the world and local schools. They also plan to offer workshops, bringing world-renowned teachers to the Lower Mainland for the benefit of area dancers.

FILM

Good buzz around latest Affleck flick

photo submitted

BEN Affleck returns to directing and to his native Boston for his sophomore directorial effort, The Town. He also co-wrote and stars in the film based on the novel Prince of Thieves by Chuck Hogan.

■ The Town. Directed, cowritten and starring Ben Affleck. Also starring Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall, Chris Cooper, Blake Lively and Pete Postlethwaite. Since the days of Fatty Arbuckle, the public has long demanded a Hollywood whipping-boy. But we also love a familiar face, thus the need for Tinseltown’s forgive-andforget policy, and our collective Reel Life short memory. Julie Crawford That’s why people are so willing to live-and-let-live where Roman Polanski is concerned, when, if he’d committed the crime today, a lynch mob would be forming. Or how about Woody Allen’s affair with his wife’s adopted daughter (35 years his junior)? All but forgiven, right? Personally, I don’t think there are enough mea culpas in the world to get Mel Gibson’s career back on track, but you never can tell: if he can squeeze himself onto Oprah’s couch in her last season, he just might have a shot. How is it that we so easily forgive Hugh Grant sex with a hooker, Eddie Murphy for his transvestite ride-along, but not Ben Affleck for Gigli? See Poor page 17

Poor decisions hurt career From page 16

Ah yes, Ben Affleck. Way back in the ‘90s, Affleck won an Oscar along with Matt Damon for their screenplay of Good Will Hunting, and it seemed two stars were born. But while Damon went on to serious roles and the wildly successful Bourne franchise, Affleck did a string of belowpar romantic comedies in between Kevin Smith movies and became the favourite scratching post for mewling critics out for blood. His career has been peppered with poor decisions (Jersey Girl, Reindeer Games, Forces of Nature), but his biggest crime at the time seemed to be leaving actress Gwyneth Paltrow and moving on to flashier Jennifer Lopez. Affleck secured the Jack Ryan role in The Sum Of All Fears, but was criticized for his one-dimensional acting. (Forgetting that predecessor Harrison Ford could be accused of the same.) “He lacks heft,” said USA Today. “Lantern jawed, woodenfaced,” said The Guardian. “Affleck is even worse in it than he was in Pearl Harbor.” Affleck has been doing penance ever since, his favourable turns in flicks like

Hollywoodland and State of Play overshadowed by gossip about his personal life. He married Jennifer Garner, became a dad twice over and turned his attention to directing, crafting Gone Baby Gone, an excellent debut effort that earned actress Amy Ryan an Oscar nomination that year. But it took Jimmy Kimmel’s I’m f@#%ing Ben Affleck (reciprocating Sarah Silverman’s catchy I’m f@#%ing Matt Damon) to revive the actor’s credibility, at least with the 25-and-under set. The actor returns to directing and to his native Boston for his sophomore directorial project, The Town. The title refers to Charlestown, Massachusetts, a square-mile Boston neighbourhood that the press notes assert has produced more bank robbers than anywhere else in the world. Affleck co-wrote the script, based on the novel Prince of Thieves by Chuck Hogan. He also stars as Doug MacRay, a bank robber aiming for one last heist so he can go straight. His character’s clean-getaway record might be compromised by his feelings for a bank manager (Rebecca Hall) who, unbeknownst to her, was one

COMEDY

Goofing off pays off for two Carson grads

Ken Kirby and Reza Peyk play ComedyFest

“As part of the Carson Graham secondary’s improv team, Kirby went to back-toback national championships. That’s when he started to see comedy as a legitimate career option.”

■ Jy Harris, Reza Peyk and Gary Fong in 3D at the Vogue Theatre, tonight at 8 p.m. as part of Vancouver Global ComedyFest. Visit www. comedyfest.com for full schedule.

Benjamin Alldritt balldritt@nsnews.com

WANT to learn the five business handshakes? What about how to buy your first suit in southeast Asia? Or maybe you’d like to buy into a mail-order groom franchise?

If any of these top-tier business tips appeal to you, check out Gary Fong’s seminar at the Vogue Theatre tonight, part of the Vancouver ComedyFest. Underneath the wig, glasses and ruthless business acumen, Fong is actually Ken Kirby, a 26-year-old North Vancouver comic who shares his character’s relentless drive to succeed. “He’s the stereotypical aggressive Chinese businessman who does anything to make a buck,” says Kirby. “The show is going to be a half-hour Tony Robbins-style seminar through the eyes of Gary. If you’ve ever been to a pyramid scheme or any of those things, this is taking the piss out of those guys. And at the end you can buy into one of Gary’s many franchises.” Kirby was born in North Vancouver but his family moved to Hong Kong when he was three. Kirby returned to the North Shore when he was 11, but his Asian experiences, not to mention his half-Chinese ancestry, have helped him develop the Gary Fong character. “We weren’t allowed to speak Chinese in school (in

Hong Kong) but then I’d go into town with my mom and they’d be cutting the heads off chickens and stuff. I’ve taken that British slapstick humour and merged it with some Asian stuff and I think that’s where I’ve been successful,” says Kirby. Returning to school after his time away, comedy was Kirby’s way of meeting new friends. As part of the Carson Graham secondary’s improv team, he went

to back-to-back national championships. That’s when he started to see comedy as a legitimate career option. “I started developing more and more characters. I was always able to make people blow up laughing and it was something I wanted to for my whole life and it’s something I can do for the rest of my life. The goal for me is to be on a show like Saturday Night Live or Mad TV. I planned to do it by the

age of 30. I’m 26 now. So I plan to go to theatre school in L.A. or New York next year. I’ll develop a few more characters and then I’ll be ready to try for an audition.” The Gary Fong character started life as a hastily assembled idea for an open mike night at the Hurricane Grill. Fong has taken on a life of his own since then. He has filmed several web videos, maintains Twitter and Facebook accounts

and has recently authored a book: Grab Life By The Balls, written by Gary Fong, Matt Hoffar and Ken Kirby. “I put the Ken Kirby bit in because some people don’t know that Gary doesn’t exist. I’ve had girls contact him through Facebook and say ‘Where do I know you from? We should go out sometime!’ I thought about going on some dates and doing a hidden camera thing just because it would

be so absurd. I think I could take it into an Ali G, Borat-type thing but very extreme. No-one’s going to say ‘Are you real?’ You can really mess with people that way. I thought about doing an open house in North Vancouver with Gary as the real estate agent and just set up the house with all this absurd stuff.” Fong is also primed to star in an Office-style web series this fall. Kirby said the various multi-media strands of Fong’s personae will be packaged together when Kirby makes his play for a U.S. television job. Kirby has a few new characters in development before then, which is probably just as well seeing as Fong is starting to bleed into his real personality. “It gets confusing sometimes. I’ll be partying with friends and they’ll say ‘Was that Gary?’ and I say ‘Yeah, sorry about that.’” Kirby will appear with fellow North Vancouver comic Reza Peyk and Jy Harris tonight at 8 p.m. at the Vogue Theatre.

MUSIC

Jenny and Johnny having fun together

■ Jenny and Johnny — I’m Having Fun Now (Warner Music) Rating: 8 (out of 10) Jenny Lewis has worked with various artists, notably as the lead singer of Rilo Kiley but this new release is a very personal outing. The Johnny of the title refers to Johnathon Rice who is Lewis’ singingsongwriting boyfriend. Together they have worked out a wonderful collaboration that gives each room to extend themselves and support each other. From the beat heavy “My Pet Snakes” to the melancholy “Switchblade” the couple embrace each song and bring a piece of their relationship to the mix. Trading the lead vocals and seamlessly slipping into backup singing makes them equal partners in this collection of 11 songs. The songs are loaded with upbeat, stripped down arrangements that keep the vocals clearly in the front. — Terry Peters ■ Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs — God Willin’ & The Creek Don’t Rise (RCA Records) Rating: 8 (out of 10) For his fourth studio album, Ray LaMontagne took a big risk — though due to his natural talent, it paid off. The New England-based singer/songwriter spent two weeks recording God Willin’ & The Creek Don’t Rise at his home, a historic property in western Massachusetts. He opted to produce the work himself, his first attempt at doing so.

Win tickets to see Gord Downie at the Vogue Sept. 22 CD REVIEWS Different from his previous records, LaMontagne shares the bill with backing band the Pariah Dogs, comprised of Greg Leisz on pedal steel guitar, Eric Heywood on guitar, Jay Bellerose on drums and Jennifer Condos on bass. Similar to his previous records, God Willin’ maneuvers the folk genre while maintaining a classic rock feel. However, a number of tracks are more country-infused this time around, evident in instrumentation choices. For example he’s accompanied by pedal steel on “Beg Steal or Borrow,” banjo on “Old Before Your Time” and harmonica and steady bass drum on “Devil’s in the Jukebox.” “For the Summer” is a standout track, LaMontagne’s

Gord Downie, lead singer of The Tragically Hip, performs tunes from his new solo album, The Grand Bounce, at the Vogue Theatre Wednesday, Sept. 22 on the opening night of a cross-Canada tour. His backing band for his solo projects, dubbed the Country of Miracles, features Julie Doiron (vocals, guitar, bass), Josh Finlayson (bass, guitar), Dale Morningstar (lead guitar), Dave Clark (drums) and Dr. Pee (keyboards). For a chance to win two tickets to the show next week tell us what other band the album’s producer, Chris Walla, plays in. Email your entry to Gord Downie Contest at thisweekcontest@nsnews.com.

Winners will be chosen in a random draw. haunting voice expressing a longing that’s undeniable. This is an honest-togoodness record, from its grassroots creation to affective lyrics to LaMontagne’s voice, which is reminiscent of another time. With that in his arsenal, god willin’, he’ll continue to make beautiful music, rich with meaning, for years to come. — Erin McPhee

Samantha Bosa recalls the moment when her favourite workout gear failed her. The West Vancouverite was bent over in a stretch during an at-home workout when her husband approached from behind and told her he could see right through her running tights, stretched thin across her backside. “My husband said ‘Whoah!’ and covered his eyes. I was so embarrassed. In my head I was going Rewind! Rewind! How many times have I done that in the gym?” That particular wardrobe malfunction now behind her, Bosa is poised to save others from a similar fate. In July, she opened Forma, a fitness training facility and athletic apparel store in West Vancouver. The new facility is located in the heart of Ambleside, at 1455 Marine Dr., which locals will remember as the former site of a McDonald’s restaurant. The spacious boutique faces the street and the fitness studio is to the rear, with its own entrance onto Clyde Avenue. The open-plan gym offers personalized workouts, group-fit classes, spinning classes, group stretch, kids fitness, athletic conditioning and team training under the guidance of head trainer Garth Prouse. Bosa herself leads an active life. The mother of three studied kinesiology at SFU and worked as a personal trainer at an exclusive fitness facility as well as privately with clients before leaving the profession to raise her young family. Her kids now 5, 6 and 8, she squeezes fitness into her busy schedule, working out with Prouse twice a week, hiking the Grouse Grind, road cycling during the warmer months, skiing and skate-skiing in the winter. Bosa says she personally tests all the athletic clothing lines she carries. The boutique offers a full selection of quality brands that meet Bosa’s high standards, with a focus on fitness, running, cycling and triathlon. The top names in performance wear are here: Arc’teryx, Under Armor, 2XU and more. Bosa shows her knowledge as she tours a reporter through the store. She picks up an Icebreaker merino Quantum Hood zip-front top and turns it inside out to reveal the Baa-code, which consumers can punch into the computer to trace the garment back to the sheep station in New Zealand from which the wool came. Turning to a rack of Pearl Izumi ride/run gear, Bosa plucks a lightweight jacket from its hanger and zips off the sleeves in one continuous motion to transform it into a vest. “I love how they thought of this. It’s one sleeve, all connected,” she enthuses, stuffing the tube of fabric into the jacket’s back pocket. Bosa’s enthusiasm for fitness fashion is obvious, but what really gets her excited is her own line of fitness wear that is, according to Forma’s website, “fully customized to a busy life on the North Shore.” Tights, tanks, short- and long-sleeve tops are available in a range of sizes and colours for men and women. Bosa worked with a Vancouver manufacturer to create the line using high-end performance fabrics from Italian mills. Tights, priced around $90, are constructed from a polyester-Lycra blend that won’t show through when it stretches and is specially knit to wick sweat away from the body and quickly disperse it on the fabric’s surface.

fashion colours, $45, are layering pieces, cut long and slim for a splash of colour beneath a fitted long-sleeve top. Bosa paid special attention to the fit of the garments, sending samples back to the drafting table until the cuts were just right. “When I shop, the cut is everything,” says Bosa. And while her own lithe frame is enviably taut and toned, she says the Forma clothing line is not just for gym bodies. Tights, for example, have a wide, double-thick waistband to flatten the tummy and curved leg seams to shape the tush, making them equally suited for a stroll along the Seawalk and a spin class. An added bonus that dog walkers will appreciate: they’re lint-resistant, says Bosa, a husky owner whose threequarter tights she’s wearing during our interview show not a hair from her furry canine companion. Bosa has taken some ribbing for her interest in fitness fashion, like from a fellow cyclist on a Seattle to Portland ride who scoffed at her stylish attire, but she offers no apologies. “Fashion counts,” says Bosa. Forma welcomes the public to its grand opening celebrations this Saturday, Sept. 18, 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. for demonstrations, prize draws and promotions.

IF you’re hoping to play it safe with Joe Fresh’s new fall cosmetics line — you better think twice.

The colours are bold, the eye shadows are rich, and the shades of nail polish are daring. In fact, the only thing safe about this season’s makeup line is its price. Similar to the brand’s well-priced clothing and accessories, the Joe Fresh cosmetics line, which was developed by Toronto fashion czar Joseph Mimran in the spring of 2009, seeks to offer fashionable makeup, at an affordable price. A bottle of nail polish, for example, is just $4, or you can purchase three for $10. Keep in mind, however, that each bottle is only 6 mL, which is less than half the amount contained in an average 15 mL bottle. But, if you’re promiscuous with nail polish like me (signs include: getting tired of wearing the same colour twice and having a drawer of two dozen old, semi-separated polishes), the Joe Fresh bargain is irresistible, as it allows you to get adventurous with colour without committing to a bottle for years. The 2010 fall nail polish palette includes nine new, vibrant shades: Orchid, Jade, Persian Blue, Moss, Caramel, Brick, Fog, and Storm. For those readers not among the fashion cognoscenti, that translates to: purple, green, blue, a slightly different shade of green, light brown, dark brown, grey, and another variant of grey. In order to cover as many bases as possible for this review, I decided to paint my fingernails Persian Blue, my right toenails Brick, and my left Moss. While this tri-colour scheme is not recommended, particularly for someone as pale as me, there is no doubt that the shades would be incredibly agreeable for the right person (preferably someone whose complexion brings out the green in army and the yellow in mustard). In the future, I’ll be seeking out Joe Fresh’s classic collection nail polish colours, which are more suitable to my taste and include hues of luscious reds and playful pinks. One downside of Joe Fresh nail polish is the bottle design. The smaller-than-average bottle means that the applicator brush does not emerge far enough away from the lid, which translates to reduced visibility, and an overall awkward application. However, and in contrast, the lightweight, clear design of Joe Fresh eye shadow cases is perfect. And, like the nail polish, the shadows come in a variety of rich colours, including: Iris, Pagoda, Ice, Dove, Rosewood, and Camp. Again, the price is right: $4 each. These shadows glide on with ease, and help to achieve the perfect balance of depth and brightness on the eyelid and brow line.

BOOKS

Author keeps action moving forward

■ The First Rule by Robert Crais, G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 308 pages, $33.95. There are a couple of things that Joe Pike has in common with Russian gangsters, a fierce sense of loyalty and an unbending belief in vengeance. In this second novel featuring Pike as the main character instead of his supporting role in Crais’ Elvis Cole novels, the ex-soldier is faced with the murder of a former squad member. The brutal execution of Frank Meyer along with his family and their nanny leaves more questions behind than answers. For Pike the debt to his friend extends beyond

REVIEW

the grave and the only path to take is the one that will lead to full retribution for the victims. Crais draws us in with a crime that has no apparent motive but gradually he brings to light a conflict that stretches far beyond the congested Los Angeles highways to the former Soviet Union. As Pike scratches beneath the surface he discovers deeper deceptions that will put more members of Pike’s circle in danger.

The stoic anti-hero will shoot first if necessary in his fight to avenge the murders that have stabbed him deeply and torn open his memories. Crais keeps the action racing forward with Pike and Cole chasing down dangerous clues while trying to find out the truth behind the many lies they are told. Honour and loyalty are two things Joe Pike understands and will not compromise on. Like the arrowed tattoos on his shoulders, Pike will move forward relentlessly until the score is settled once and for all. — Terry Peters

Here’s a shock: electric future is here now NEWS photo Cindy Goodman

THE new GMC Terrain stands out in the crowded SUV market because of its fuel economy, safety rating and distinctive styling. It is available at Carter GM in the Northshore Auto Mall.

GMC covers new Terrain

David Chao and Bob McHugh Contributing Writers

THE GMC Terrain is a new entry in the utility-vehicle market with the proportions of a big compact. The choices are many for buyers in this segment, but the Terrain stands out with distinctive styling, top-notch occupant safety and exceptionally good fuel economy. While closely related to the Chevy Equinox, the Terrain has a higher level of standard equipment, a more purposeful exterior design with larger, more practical rear doors and some extra

cargo room behind its rear seats. It seats five in a roomy cabin that treats its rear passengers to seats that slide fore and aft to allow a generous amount of legroom and seatbacks that recline. The base-level front-wheel versions of Terrain are priced low enough to be cross-shopped against popular but slightly smaller compact utility vehicles like the Honda CR-V or the Toyota RAV4. Moving up to all-wheel drive and more lavish trim levels, vehicles like the Ford Edge or even the Nissan Murano

might also be competitors. Built on a car-like unibody chassis, the Terrain is offered with a choice of four-cylinder or six-cylinder engines and all models come with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Terrain rides on an extra-long 2,857-mm wheelbase and has a four-wheel independent suspension system. GM’s first use of active noise cancellation technology is also used on 2.4-litre models. This system uses microphones to detect booming sounds inside the vehicle and sends counteracting sound waves through the audio system’s speakers to provide a

DESPITE the “current buzz” about electric vehicles — and that’s the first e-pun out of the way — I’d previously always looked upon the battery-powered car as being the tofu of motoring. Oh sure, there’s protein in there somewhere, but you’ll never convince me that a rubbery white block is the same as something delicious that used to moo, and if we’re getting into the Disney-fied anthropomorphizing of animals, I’ll have you know that I’ve worked on several farms and thus been butted, bitten, stepped on, and shat all over by any number of great shaggy beasts, so you can knock off the Bambi’s mother routine.

quieter driving experience. The new direct-injection 2.4-litre fourcylinder engine delivers surprisingly good performance and its max output is rated at 182 horsepower and 172 foot-pounds of torque. Fuel economy is excellent and a highway rating of just 6.1 litres/100 kilometres is outstanding. Fuel consumption can be further reduced by activating the Eco drive mode at the push of a button. It lowers the torque converter lockup speed to 1,125 r.p.m. and comes with models equipped with the 2.4-litre engine. The optional 3.0-litre V-6 can provide 264 h.p. and 222 foot-pounds of torque. If you’re planning to pull something with a Terrain,

it’s definitely the better engine choice as it increases the Terrain’s towing capability from 680 kilograms to 1588 kg. Our test Terrain was a top-line SLT-2 all-wheel drive version with the 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine. Leather upholstery and a programmable power rear liftgate come with this trim level and the options also included were a rear seat entertainment system ($1,750), a cargo management package ($345) and a trailer tow package ($515). All of which brought its full price up to $38,790. The looks GMC is exclusively a truck, van and utility vehicle division of General Motors. The styling of its product line typically reflects its

regarded hybrids with the suspicious distaste I reserve for light beer. No matter how much they’ve paid Lance Armstrong to do the commercials, I’ve always felt, “Why not simply drink the much more delicious craft-brewed beer, and if you’re worried about the calories, just drink slightly less of it?” Which, I suppose, is why Lance Armstrong looks like Lance Armstrong, and I look like an unbaked loaf of bread. However, it is not my place to get the vegans upset (Lord knows their feeble constitutions can hardly handle it), nor to annoy the cycling crowd or the good people at Michelob. No, this is still rather loosely a motoring column, and I’m here to tell you that the electric future of cars is already here, you just can’t tell because it’s a bit funny-shaped. And far too expensive. But before we get into the cars, consider your cellphone. That’s right, pull it out, place it on the table and have a really good look at it. Odds are, it’s compact, holds a charge for a decent amount of time, and has more features than any sane person could possibly ever hope to master in a lifetime. Also, in the time it took to remove your phone from your pocket, the latest updated unit just came out and made yours look like a

sad, clunky relic even a particularly orthodox Amish person wouldn’t be caught dead with. So too with cars, and I’m stealing — er, borrowing — this metaphor directly from EVangelist Robert Llewellyn, in that early versions can be expected to be a bit unwieldy. Just think of those first brick-sized cellular telephones: like mailboxes with antennae, battery life measured in just minutes, astronomically expensive to operate, and causing brain-cancer and infertility for everyone within a 30-foot radius. No wonder people thought they’d never catch on. Nowadays the cellphone is as unpleasantly prevalent as the common cold; even in places where people don’t have access to clean water or proper medical facilities, they’ve got cellphones. What used to weigh kilos now weighs grams and is perfectly capable of giving you a GPS location, checking your email, taking a photo or showing a movie. And also annoying whoever’s next to you on the bus, let’s not forget. The electric car can be considered in much the same light. Oh sure, these days they might mostly be limited-range peapods that have the accelerative capabilities and curb appeal (and

occupants can stay happy and harmonious. An oversized glove compartment, a centredash storage bin and a compartment under the centre armrest that’s large enough to swallow a laptop computer are examples of the excellent storage places offered in Terrain. The standard MultiFlex sliding rear seat, with 60/40split rear seat-back, can also be moved forward nearly 20 cm for extra rear cargo capacity. Safety In a recent test by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2010 GMC Terrain received the highest-possible rollover protection rating and was named a 2010 Top Safety Pick. The Terrain’s roof withstood a force equal to four times the vehicle’s weight. Standard safety features throughout the Terrain lineup include six airbags, electronic stability control and a rear-view camera with a small screen in the rear-view mirror. In addition, Terrain also offers the security of the

OnStar system. The drive The dash slopes away from the front occupants, which helps give the cabin an open and spacious feel. The driver’s instrument pod houses easyto-read gauges and a tilt/ telescopic steering column plus a height-adjustable seat make finding a good driving position effortless. The Terrain is a nice size in that it’s not too big to manoeuvre around town, yet it feels substantial and rides very comfortably on the highway. While the suspension is on the soft side, cornering is predictable, it feels secure and is aided by its wide stance and a stability system that keeps it nicely balanced. The quick-shifting sixspeed transmission combines well with the 182 h.p. fourcylinder engine and provides ample power. The engine has to work a little harder at times, so the noise level is also a little higher than you get from a larger engine. A small price to pay for the truly outstanding fuel economy provided. The score A generously sized compact utility vehicle, the well put-together GMC Terrain offers roomy passenger accommodations, great fuel economy and great value.

crashworthiness) of a banana slug, but that’s just the beginning of the story. And it’s not all ho-hum humdrum either. Consider, for a moment, the Tesla roadster. Granted, a $100,000 two-seater can’t really be put forward as practical transportation for the everyman, but it certainly dispels any notion that electric motoring is doomed to be dull. And it’s not like the Tesla’s range is particularly limited either. Even if you drive around like your pants are on fire, an average of around 300 kilometres per charge is possible, and some slightly tedious Australian person has managed to eke out just over 500 km on a single charge. My normal-sized Subaru would struggle to do 500 km on a tank of gas, and in day-to-day driving, I would rarely exceed that normal 200-300 kilometres per week. Then there’s the constant whinging about the environmental cost of electricity from coal-fired generators and so forth. Granted, gasoline is a cheaper form of energy currently, but it’s not like fossil fuels don’t need to be transported, stored and refined, all on top of very likely having to invade the odd country or make a deal

with some very nasty sorts of people to get at the stuff in the first place. With hydroelectric power and solar energy (let’s leave aside bird-mincing wind power for the moment), you have a relatively clean way of getting energy from the source to the consumer, and most of the infrastructure is already in place, unlike hydrogen or biofuel alternatives. So if we can build electric cars with reasonable range and power, why aren’t we already doing so? Ah, hearken to the pitterpatter of the be-slippered feet of various conspiracy theorists who would have you believe that Big Oil and Big Car are huddled around the table at some secret underground Stonecutter meeting, making sure that nobody tries to build an efficient electric vehicle. Nonsense of course, as the problem is the same one it’s always been: the batteries. Batteries equal weight, and with the modern car already ballooning in size with safety regulations, building a workable electric car means either choosing to retrofit an old vehicle with little mass, like a Suzuki Swift, or trying to put together a purpose-built machine using exotic and expensive lightweight materials.

Those lightweight materials are getting cheaper with increasing demand, as are batteries becoming more efficient and lighter. Just take a look at some of the electric motorcycles developed recently. Motorcycles have always been at the forefront of powertrain performance, and, having no safety equipment to speak of — other than an organ donor’s card — they’ve responded well to having batteries integrated into their chassis while still remaining as light and nimble as their gasoline burning cousins. Of course, it’s not like I won’t miss the internal combustion engine, when at last that particular dinosaur roars its final swan song. The bowling-ball-in-an-industrial-dryer noise of an idling big-block hemi has no aural equal in the zzzzing of an electric propulsion unit. Also, there’s something about the smell of poorly burnt hydrocarbons that brings back memories of paddocks at the drag races, and sharing with my father in the joy of actually getting one of his recalcitrant British cars to start. But that’s old hat. It’s hard to complain about your Tesla sounding like the Starship Enterprise when it is able to smoke Corvettes at the dragstrip and dreadlocked girls in natural fibres are offering to realign your chakra. But never mind the Tesla for now, as it’s merely a plaything alternative to a Boxster or Lotus. Instead, if you’d like a little peek at the crystal ball, check out Nissan’s upcoming Leaf. Admittedly, it looks like a concussed frog, but it’s a real car: a four-door hatchback that you can take on the highway. It’ll have regular dealer support, reasonable insurance rates and cost about the same as a Prius. Granted, the fun-to-drive factor will be a bit Prius-y at first too, but with growing popularity and a decade or two of development, the electric vehicle will bridge the gap between strict practicality and the big ticket e-supercars that already exist. There’ll be the electric crossovers and electric delivery trucks. Electric luxury sedans will whizz people past worksites where men in hard hats will be loading tools into their electric pickup trucks. And somewhere, in some dimly-lit garage, a group of grubby enthusiasts will be removing the old, feeble engine out of a little electric hatchback and cramming some giant powerplant in its stead to create the first e-hot-rod. At that very moment, and not one nanosecond before, you can take the keys to my gasolineburner away. Not my cellphone though, I’m using that as a door-stop.

Writers moved by iconic Harley ■ The Harley-Davidosn Reader, edited by Michael Dregni, Motorbooks, 346 pages, $24.95.

HARLEY-DAVIDSON. The name is synonymous with big, chromeladen motorcycles. It is also linked with an attitude, a rebelliousness that is embraced by the extensive marketing strategies of the company and the thousands of riders who have turned a machine into an icon. From its earliest production motorcycles to the huge selection of models gleaming on showroom floors, it is a machine that has been lusted after for decades. The passion that this bike invokes has also fueled some great writing. More than 30 stories fill the pages with personal perspectives on the impact and role that Harley-Davidsons have played in modern culture. Along with the stories are a mix of photographs and illustrations from the motorcycle’s history. The bike is examined from a wide range of perspectives. From the very beginning as revealed in Herbert Wagner’s article on the first Harley-

THE Harley Davidson Reader offers personal stories about the famous motorcycle brand from writers such as Evel Knievel and Hunter S. Thompson. Davidson motorcycle to Alan Mayes’ take on the chopper craze and what might come next. Some writers have looked at the phenomenon from the outside, while others such as Hunter S. Thompson jumped

in and immersed themselves in the biker culture. All are great stories and will be enjoyed by anyone interested in learning more about the world of Harleys. — Terry Peters
