Not guilty – after 26 years in jail

Court of Appeal acquits Lynn Valley man Benjamin Alldritt

balldritt@nsnews.com

MORE than 27 years after being convicted of a series of sexual assaults and labelled a dangerous offender, Ivan Henry has been acquitted of all charges by the B.C. Court of Appeal. Flanked by his daughters on the courthouse steps, Henry thanked the appeal court judges, his lawyers, and his family. “With a great family, how can you not win? I thank all of you across the country and — O Canada! Because we do live in a wonderful, wonderful country,” he said. “I believed from the very, very beginning. I thought it was a joke in a sense, right? As the joke went away, I had a great belief in God and people and honesty. I believe in honesty. Maybe that’s why. Things will always work right if you wait for them.” Henry, 64, admitted to being overwhelmed by the changed world he was released into on bail in June of 2009.

LGH gets $2.1M to unjam ER

B.C. extends patient-focused funding 1 year James Weldon

Jane Seyd

jweldon@nsnews.com

jseyd@nsnews.com

THE province has given Lions Gate Hospital $2.1 million to unclog its Emergency Department. The grant, announced Oct. 20, is an extension of a pilot program that hospital administrators say has already dramatically improved wait times. The government is giving similar boosts to 14 other ERs across British Columbia. Since 2007, Lions Gate and other hospitals in the region have been experimenting with an approach to budgeting called patient-focused funding, which pays health facilities a sum of money for every patient they treat within a set period of time, the idea being to reward them for improving efficiency. That differs from traditional block funding, which is simply handed to the hospital each year to use NEWS photo Paul McGrath as it chooses until it runs out. The new program demands REGISTERED nurses Karen Mayo (left) and Shelley Todd show visitors around the Jim Pattison Emergency that low acuity patients — those Centre’s acute treatment centre during a Lions Gate Hospital open house in December 2007. who arrive in the ER with relatively minor complaints — be treated and released the doctors go there, they know they’re not dealing The surge in patients nonetheless remains an issue, within two hours.

Schreck: Tax cut an attempt to buy back support From page 1 said Campbell. Campbell said the tax cuts will cost $568 million in the first year, rising to $638 million per year by 201314. The business community welcomed news of the tax cuts cautiously. “Tax cuts will probably help consumers andtheserviceindustry,”saidAnneMcMullin,president of the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce. “Tax cuts do stimulate economy activity.” But the move failed to win over Campbell’s critics, who described the announcement as an attempt to buy back support by a premier who has recently sunk to single digit approval ratings in the polls. “Gordon Campbell’s desperate. He’s trying to cling to power,” said left-wing commentator and former North Vancouver NDP MLA David Schreck.

Graffiti threat found at Larson

“He’s showing that he’s willing to throw all fiscal responsibility to the wind to try to buy back support,” said Schreck, adding Campbell’s tax cuts will put a “$600-million hole in the province’s finances at a time when we’re running a deficit in excess of $1 billion.” Schreck added the richest people will get the biggest tax cut, while those earning less will see less benefit. Campbell spent part of Wednesday evening’s televised address trying to explain how and why the government brought in the HST in an about-face so quickly after the provincial election. Campbell said there wasn’t time to consult the public on the issue, stressing that $1.6 billion of federal money hung in the balance. He also reminded voters they will be able to vote on the HST in a referendum next September. McMullin said the business community supports the HST, as good for the overall economy. Those such

as port industries and light industrial manufacturers that are looking to make capital investments stand to benefit the most from the HST, she said. But Schreck said while capital-intensive industries benefit from the HST, labour-intensive businesses and consumers are paying the price. For most people, tax cuts announced Wednesday still won’t make up the extra money they’ll be paying as a result of the HST, he said. Schreck said he doubted the speech would change Campbell’s political fortunes, describing the premier’s tone on the HST as “condescending — Why are you so stupid that you don’t understand what I’ve done with the HST?” Schreck said voters understand the HST, but they still don’t like it or the way it was brought in. “He’s had it,” he said of Campbell. “Things have never been this bad for him.”

LARSON elementary school remained open this week amid some beefed-up security after RCMP were called Tuesday to investigate a threatening message. Staff discovered the threatening graffiti on one of the school’s exterior walls Tuesday morning at recess. The message was a general threat against the school and didn’t name anyone individually, said Peter DeVries, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. Administrators decided to keep the school open after police searched the grounds with a bomb-sniffing dog trained to track down weapons and explosives and turned up nothing. In a letter sent home to parents, principal Larry Young described the “intimidating message” as a “low-level” threat that should not be cause for concern. “Still, some children may find this type of event to be unsettling or anxiety provoking,” he added. “I hope you’ll help in reassuring your children that they are safe at school. . . .” The school district responded to the incident by hiring private security to patrol school grounds after hours for the rest of the week. Victoria Miles, spokeswoman for the North Vancouver school district, said the school district takes all threats seriously. Most parents have been understanding and able to put the graffiti message in perspective, she said. But she added, “It’s stressful and distracting for everyone involved and we’d like to see this sort of behaviour come to an end.” DeVries said police don’t know if the Larson graffiti is connected to a similar incident where a threat was written on the wall of West Vancouver secondary earlier this month. “There’s a belief that it could be related,” he said. That message, concerning a threat to be carried out Oct. 19, also prompted police response and hiring of private security. DeVries said it’s possible the graffiti could also be copycat behaviour. He said he has answered some phone calls from concerned parents this week. But he added, “We don’t believe there’s any risk to the staff and students of the school.”

District Dialogue Get ready for snow!

Are you ready? The forecast this winter is for snow – and lots of it – so now is the perfect time to prepare. Here are some tips to ensure you’re ready when the snow arrives: • Install quality snow tires and tune-up your vehicle for winter driving. • Plan ahead to use public transit, if possible, to commute to work, school, or medical appointments when it snows.

Visit www.dnv.org/snow and learn how to prepare for winter storms. We’re looking for a Section Manager – Streets to plan, direct and supervise all activities pertaining to the construction and maintenance of District streets, bridges, sidewalks, pathways and surface drainage infrastructure. If you possess a relevant post secondary education, plus several years’ related experience, including sound technical, project management, administrative, budgeting, leadership and communication skills, we’d like to hear from you! Visit www.dnv.org/jobs for more information.

• Prepare for an emergency. Keep an emergency kit and supplies in your home, office and car. During an emergency, such as a large-scale power outage, residents may be without services or assistance for up to 72 hours. Visit the North Shore Emergency Management website at www.nsemo.org, or call 604-983-7440 to find out more about personal emergency preparedness and for information on free emergency preparedness workshops. The next free preparedness workshop is scheduled for Monday, November 1, 2010. • Keep a shovel and a supply of salt handy for sidewalks and driveways. And, when it snows please: • Park in your driveway, not on the street. Parking in your driveway will allow snow plows and salt spreaders the room required to safely clear the street. This is particularly important on cul-de-sacs and narrow roadways. Please note that lanes/ alleys are not plowed. • Do not abandon your car if it gets stuck. Illegally parked cars hamper snow clearing and may be ticketed and/or towed. • Remove snow from your sidewalk. The owner or occupier of an industrial, commercial or multi-family property is required to remove any accumulation of snow or ice from the sidewalks and footpaths bordering the real property within 24 hours after the cessation of any snow or ice accumulation. Residents of single-family properties are also asked to clear snow and ice from sidewalks in front of their home in order to ensure the safety of pedestrians. Please also clear snow from fire hydrants and the catch basins in front of your home or business.

We wish you and your family a safe and fun Halloween! From Mayor, Council and staff of North Vancouver District. Wondering what to do with your post-Halloween pumpkin? Here are a couple earth friendly ideas. Put Jack in your compost. Chop your pumpkin into thumb size pieces and put it in your composter. Or, add Jack to your yard trimmings. The District will accept pumpkins as part of your yard trimmings collection. Simply remove any candles and wax, and place in your yard trimmings can for collection. For the safety of collection crews please make sure that if you put your pumpkin in a 77L garbage can, the total weight of the can is less than 20kg (45lbs). Please do not put your pumpkin in a kraft paper bag.

For more information about the District’s snow and ice management policy, and how you can prepare for winter storms, visit www.dnv.org/snow.

photographic lineup, Henry was the only man pictured in front of a jail cell. Even so, many of the women could not positively identify him. Some of the victims identified him solely on the sound of his voice in court, another only after being hypnotized by a police detective. Henry represented himself in court, and was unable to exploit any of the weaknesses in the case against him. What’s more, the appeal court panel found that the trial judge made several serious errors in instructing the jury, including telling them that Henry’s resistance in the police lineup could be seen as evidence of guilt. Henry was convicted on three counts of rape, two counts of attempted rape, and five counts of indecent assault. As a dangerous offender, he was handed an indefinite prison sentence. “The eyewitness identification evidence was polluted,” said David Layton, a member of Henry’s legal team. “It was farcical. There was no basis to convict him in 1983 and there’s no basis today. As in many wrongful conviction cases — and this is a wrongful conviction case — there were many, many factors. Police practices, non-disclosure by the Crown, and the list goes on.” Henry filed repeated appeals over the following years, all of which were turned away. “This is not someone who just sat quietly in jail languishing for 27 years,” said Marilyn Sandford, another of Henry’s lawyers. “He brought application after application to the courts. He tried to figure out the law. He tried to figure out what to do to get his innocence established. . . . It’s shocking to read how many times he asked to see the exhibits and the statements he never got. Nobody paid attention.” But his luck changed in 2002, when Vancouver police began “Project Smallman,” a re-examination of 25 unsolved sexual assaults from the 1980s. Using DNA evidence, they arrested a man who ultimately pleaded guilty, in 2005, to three counts and was given a five-year sentence. The man’s name is subject to a publication ban. During the Smallman investigations, prosecutors began to notice similarities between their cases and those Henry was convicted for. They forwarded their findings to the Ministry of the Attorney General, which appointed a special prosecutor to review Henry’s case and the Smallman evidence. In 2008, the prosecutor recommended Henry be allowed to launch another appeal. In June of 2009, Henry was released on bail pending his appeal. He was required to wear an electronic ankle bracelet, observe a curfew between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., and was not allowed outside without a chaperone. “He came home to a family he really didn’t know, and we didn’t really know him,” said Tanya Olivares, Henry’s daughter. “He had to come into a busy family life. He has adjusted like nobody else could have. He is truly amazing. I am so proud of him. He always kept his chin up from Day 1. Today he can really wear his smile on his face proudly and we couldn’t be more happy.” Olivares, who was a child when Henry was sent to jail, noted that her father was finally exonerated on the 20th anniversary of her mother’s death. Neither Henry, his family or lawyers would discuss whether or not he will seek compensation, stressing that a return to normal life is their chief concern today. “Going to a soccer game to watch his grandson play, walking the dog, going to the library,” Olivares said. “There’s nothing fancy, just everyday life that he can now enjoy.”

Satisfaction high at LGH

From page 1 case that comes through their doors, and the authority monitors those, including the rate of readmission. If a problem emerges, the authority will tell the hospital to address it, she said. Administrators also conduct broad, randomly administered patient surveys, which allow users a chance to give VCH feedback on their experience, said D’Angelo. “We score very high as far as satisfaction goes at Lions Gate,” she said. “Since we’ve started the ER pilot, there has been improvement in flow, and people have noticed that.” And the funding model doesn’t really encourage a slap-dash approach to treatment, anyway, argued D’Angelo. “If you rush anybody through, they’ll be back,” she said. “There’s no point. No individual is going to profit from someone going through the emergency department fast; it’s the hospital that’s going to benefit with the extra money going into providing care.” Lions Gate has run patient-focused funding pilots in at least two other areas. In one 18-month experiment, which ended in March, a grant aimed at streamlining the hospital’s cataract surgeries saw an acceleration that cut the waiting list from 1,000 to 200, and kept it there, according to surgeons who run the program. A similar initiative involving spinal operations raised the number of procedures performed in a year from 125 to 250.

Lyle Stephen Smordin, 53, of Vancouver, pleaded guilty to an unusual charge of secretly observing nudity after he was caught on the floor of the public washroom at the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal on March 17. Crown counsel Mike Mahoney said the man who was in the stall apparently hadn’t noticed Smordin, who was nabbed when a contractor walked into the bathroom and saw what was happening. Smordin was followed back to his blue bus, where he was arrested and “basically admits the offence to police on the spot,” said Mahoney. Defence lawyer Phil Rankin said nobody can understand why Smordin snooped under the stall. He doesn’t even seem to have had a sexual motive, said Rankin. Rankin said Smordin has a form of autism, which has sometimes manifested in strange obsessive-compulsive behaviour. “All we can come to is that he’s got odd behaviour all his life that manifested in this way on this particular day,” said Rankin. Smordin was fired from his job as a bus driver after he was charged. Judge William Rogers of the North Vancouver provincial court handed Smordin a conditional discharge with orders to take counselling, including sex offender treatment, if directed to do so by his probation officer.

E have elected a government in British Columbia that thinks they can do whatever they want, said Gordon Campbell, to raucous applause. “They are absolutely intoxicated by power and they think it’s up to them — whatever they want, they can do it.’’ The UBCM delegates were on their feet, rapturous. Yes, those were heady days, in 1996. Alas, three straight election wins later, Campbell has clearly had a few too many pints of the powers himself. And he’s not a fun drunk. Not like that other guy, whatshisname . . . Vander Zalm. Remember him? No, watching Campbell’s primetime address was like watching an old boozer bump into the furniture, repeat himself, and then leave you with the

bill. A lot of people were hoping for an HST apology. We got yet another “could have done a better job” and yet another retread of the story Campbell’s been telling for more than a year. Some folks were hoping for good news on the education front. Well, 20 per cent of our Grade 4 students are behind in basic literacy and math. Hold on, we’re going to fix that! Great. How did we get here in the first place? Campbell was premier when a lot of those kids were born. But wait, I’ve got a 15 per cent tax cut for you! It might cost half a billion dollars but we’ll find it somewhere. Get over here, Hansen. The worst part is that Campbell really seems to think people will believe him. A decade in office is intoxicating indeed.

GORDON Campbell offered realignment this week. Better you should go to Canadian Tire, Carter Chevrolet etc. They know about realignment.

With the wheels falling off his government, tires flat and the gas gauge showing empty, the premier faces the prospect that British Columbians will trade in his sputtering 2001 Model T Liberal machine for a new, glittering (only paintdeep?) NDP 2013. Oh, enough of the silly metaphor. Campbell did a praiseworthy job in his first two terms. His third term has hit bumps like the ruts in Lighthouse Park — driven into it lately? — so hard that the steering is shot and the driver judged lousy enough to lose his licence. (Damn that automobile metaphor, get it outa here!) Blunder has hit the B.C. ship of state in wave after wave. (No, this is not the start of a nautical metaphor.) Can’t have an afternoon nap,

This Just In

Trevor Lautens for fear of missing one that’s overtaken by the next one. You wonder: How much can the punching bag that is the B.C. public take without rising up in anger? Where’s Thomas Jefferson when we really need him? Jefferson, a notable of the American Revolution, famously wrote: “God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. . . . What country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them

take arms. . . . The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.” Maybe Jefferson was just having a bad-wig day when he wrote that. Politicians are shrewdly aware that roughly half the citizens no longer bother to shoot even the soft bullet of the ballot box, especially in municipal elections, where 25 per cent turnouts aren’t unusual. Thus B.C. politics, as the media love to say, is reduced to entertainment, a “blood sport,” the blood being Hollywood ketchup as opposed to the real stuff shed by those in the past seeking liberty, dignity of the individual, freedom from arbitrary measures, and such quaint stuff. Back to the case of Dave Basi and Bob Virk: These ministerial aides, after five years of denial, abruptly pleaded guilty to breach of trust and accepting benefits (corruption, in street terms)

in the province’s sale of B.C. Rail to CN Rail, and were sentenced to two years less a day of house arrest — a curfew hardly sterner than tough parents might impose on a naughty teenager. Everyone OK with that? Anyone? How about anyone other than those engaged in the legal industry, some masked men in the government, and maybe Basi, Virk and kin? That case began with an unprecedented raid on the B.C. legislature almost seven years ago and turtled through the courts for five years, ending with a plea bargain — once associated in starchy Canadian minds with, horrors, the U.S. court system — which stuck taxpayers with $18 million in legal costs, including the pair’s $6million bill, in return for their guilty pleas and the prisonless punishment. Two deputy ministers handled forgiveness of the legal bills. The special prosecutor negotiated the plea bargain. The court acquiesced.

One of the lawyers involved in this exercise explained at decorous length the progress of the case through the courts. To listen to it attentively was to admire the delicate filigree work, the stained-glass windows, the baroque music (Vivaldi comes to mind) of our vaunted legal system. What I didn’t hear was a single word of the libretto of justice. The guilty pleas, quite coincidentally, absolved former ministers and others from testifying, which would have been an inconvenience at least, and maybe even an embarrassment at higher levels of the government. (Among those also spared as Crown witness was Brian Kieran, a journalist-turnedlobbyist whom I very much liked — though he once had the temerity to slag my goodly self in his Province column — who ruefully told CBC radio that he “kicks himself every day” for his tangential role in the affair.) Gary Mason in the Globe and Mail noted that the

B.C. Rail trial ended “with a couple of guilty pleas, and with it went any chance of finding out what was really going on behind the scenes of this $1-billion deal.” This paper’s learned readership doesn’t need reminding that there are two standards that judges must meet in their rulings. In criminal trials, the required test is “beyond a reasonable doubt.” But in civil courts the test is the much lower “balance of probabilities” — closer to what the great unwashed would call plain sense and a basic grasp of human mendacity, selective memory and the plausible manner that hides a scoundrel. On the balance of probabilities, it is my view that the official narrative of the Basi/Virk case is humbug — Blind Justice touching one stone, unaware that it is part of the Sphinx. And as silent as the Sphinx, as Mason implied, about what really went on. See NDP page 9

Campbell keen on his team

IT’S going to take a lot more than a cabinet shuffle and a provincewide television address for Premier Gordon Campbell to even begin to recover in popularity.

Music, Dance and More!

WHAT’S ON

Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

Mailbox

Campbell has wasted talent

Dear Editor: If Carole James runs this province as well as my late wife ran our household and finances, then I say let her go to it — but I have other reasons for the opinion, notably a comparison of the two cabinets. It seems to me Mr. Campbell has spent some valuable property in the likes of Carole Taylor, Kash Heed and Wally Oppal and the NDP shadow cabinet is the more impressive of the two. I am a little tired of a one-man band. Jim Battershill North Vancouver

But some of the changes he’s made — or not made View from the Ledge — provide some clues about what might be his comeback Keith Baldrey strategy. First of all, despite the fact that 16 ministers got new (or slightly new) assignments at the cabinet table, the shuffle itself did not signal any great change in the government’s priorities. The ministers of most of the key ministries — finance, health, transportation, forestry and attorney general — retained their portfolios. The biggest change, arguably, was moving George Abbott into the education portfolio. The government signalled two years ago that it had ambitious plans for significant reforms of the K-12 education system, and perhaps Abbott will be the one to finally carry them out. Abbott will also be the one who will square off with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation as it prepares to enter into contract talks. The BCTF will want a hefty raise, which the government will refuse to grant, and Abbott will be the government point man in the showdown that looms with the militant union. And putting Rich Coleman back into the solicitor-general’s portfolio — where he had served before — while allowing him to keep responsibility for social housing is another logical fit. He also keeps responsibility for gaming, liquor and ICBC, thus ensuring he remains a major force in government. Former solicitor general John Les, who had to resign after it was revealed he was under a special prosecutor’s investigation, is no doubt the most disappointed person in the B.C. Liberal caucus. Even though he was cleared in that investigation, Les was not only passed over for cabinet promotion, but got the equivalent of the proverbial lump of coal: he’s now the parliamentary secretary for HST information. Good luck with that, John! Les’s seatmate in Chilliwack is also likely disappointed. Barry Penner moves from the high-profile environment portfolio to the more anonymous aboriginal affairs ministry. The shuffle also displayed Campbell’s penchant for tinkering with what actually constitutes a cabinet ministry. He created two portfolios out of thin air. We now have a minister for natural resource operations and — wait for it — a minister of state for “building code renewal.” But the rest of the cabinet changes were relatively minor with only one new face — Stephanie Cadieux from Surrey — was promoted from the backbench. There were no real demotions — no one was actually taken out of cabinet — which may speak

to Campbell having to be very careful about hurting anyone’s feelings in his party right now, given the party convention coming up in November. Campbell says he regards his current team as strong, with little need for new blood. He remains stubbornly optimistic he can pull both himself and his government out of the mess they find themselves, and that he can do that with little change in the people around him. There was one important exception to that, however. After spending 13 years as Premier Gordon Campbell’s chief adviser, Martyn Brown has left the premier’s office to become a deputy minister. Replacing him is former deputy finance minister and ICBC president Paul Taylor. The importance of Brown’s departure cannot be downplayed. Few people last long as a chief of staff to a political leader and Brown’s survival in that post for so long speaks volumes about how much Campbell relied on him. Chief of staff can be an immensely powerful position, second perhaps only to the premier himself. Brown has been the unseen force in the B.C. Liberal government since it first took power in 2001. Like his predecessors, he seemed likely to last only a few years, but after a while it became apparent he was so intrinsically linked to Campbell that he wasn’t going anywhere. But now he has left (he’s now deputy minister of tourism, trade and investment) and it will be interesting to see what impact his departure has on Campbell’s strategic and philosophic approach to governing. I suspect Taylor’s priority will be to help devise a strategy to sell the HST to the public. He surely can’t be viewing his appointment as long-term employment, given the government’s low standing in the polls. KBaldrey@globaltv.com

Arts story offends dance professionals hamstrings and inner thighs. The suggestion that “pre-ballet students, aged four to six” are achieving this in their third week of classes is positively scary. The development of classical technique, and careful coaching of turnout, takes years to properly train, with attention to not overloading young supple bodies and bones that are still growing and maturing. In the article, the director states, “We just don’t feel the need to teach them ‘the easy way,’ so we start with the hardest skills first. They can always do more than you think they can do.” Perhaps the “easy way” is actually a methodical progression in dance training that respects the physical and mental vulnerabilities and limitations of young growing bodies and minds? In any athletic endeavour, the participants could always do “more than you think they can do” — i.e. gymnastics, figure skating, track and field. Does that mean that more is ultimately better? The athlete/ performer won’t have a career if they are

NDP leadership critics could brush up on art of warfare From page 6

••• The New Democrats — that’s another movie, for another day. Enough for now to jeer at the not uncommon stupidity of the intelligent, the anti-Carole James claque inspired by MLA Bob Simpson, whose revolt was comically timed to lift the opposition knee from the throat of a premier strangling on a nine-per-cent approval rating. Simpson’s long record of short attention span and political restlessness perhaps has been surpassed only by that of Chris Delaney, who is a world-class surpasser in such matters. James’s steady competence and absence of rhetorical cant — perhaps foxier than meets the eye, if the indispensable middle is to be successfully wooed, after which the plan is for the NDP heavies to move in — naturally enrage the NDP’s enragée wing. A better leader? Vaughn Palmer, Keith Baldrey and Bill Good recently strolled down memory lane on CKNW, remarkably recalling some totally obscure NDP leadership aspirants of yesteryear. Good delightfully threw in, with maximum dryness: “Those are all people who have gone on to do great things.”

Palmer had more serious recollections of the NDP’s hard-core leftists. Like good ol’ Corky Evans — the “Corky” alone lent assurance that this was a popular man of the people — who actually mourned the bad side of the fall of the Berlin Wall. (Foul-mouthed Harry Rankin similarly went untouched for his 40 years as a loyal apologist for the Soviet Union’s dictatorship.) With Gordon Campbell gasping for political oxygen and knocked this week by cabinet minister Bill Bennett, Simpson and other illtimed snipers at their leader might ponder the oft-quoted maxim — no, not of Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro or the other socialist greats, but of Napoleon Bonaparte: “Never interrupt the enemy when he is making a mistake.” ••• Russell Williams having wedged his monsterhood into Canada’s Unholy Trinity of Clifford Olson, Paul Bernardo and Robert Pickton, only one thing needs to be added to this horror picture. How do you think his fellow prisoners will treat a former air force colonel who cavorted around in women’s panties and bras? tlautens@telus.net

sidelined with injuries and burnout. Without knowing or presenting information on the training practices at other local dance schools, it is irresponsible to suggest that Vancouver Junior Professional Division is “different from most schools” in that their “expectations are very high.” Further, the article states “for these students, if they want to further their dance training at the same level after they graduate from the (VJPD) program, they will likely leave the province.” It seems to suggest that no other schools in the Lower Mainland, let alone B.C., have trained high-level dancers who have gone on to enjoy professional careers. That is a very unfortunate

Dear Editor: I am writing in response to your Oct. 3 front page article (Editor: page 3): Dying Arts. I am a classical ballet instructor on the North Shore with both a Vaganova and Royal Academy of Dance ballet background. I have 11 years teaching experience, in which my students have successfully completed exams, received high honours in competitions, and have gone on to dance professionally. I hold a bachelor of science degree in food, nutrition, and health, have conducted nutrition seminars for dancers, and hold registered teacher status with the Royal Academy of Dance. The Dying Arts article states “13 dancers stand facing the barre in perfect first positions: heels touching, feet turned out to make 180 degrees.” While this may sound impressive, the reality is, even after training several years, relatively few people have the ability to achieve pure 180 degree rotation in the hip joint. Correct alignment must start at the hips, and be maintained through the knees, ankles and feet through proper use of the rotator muscles,

statement, as it is not based on fact. I can factually inform you that the Dying Arts article has concerned and offended other professionals in the dance industry, and this letter is written on behalf of my close colleagues in both ballet and other dance disciplines. As all arts organizations are feeling the effects of the current economic climate and funding circumstances, we would love to engage in discussion to bring awareness to our “world” and improve the situation. A one-sided discussion disguising opinion as fact unfortunately doesn’t help. Krista Savage, North Vancouver

But there are hazards to lighting the blue touchpaper, and municipalities regulate their use. Predictably enough, the North Shore does not have a common bylaw that applies to all three municipalities, and a lot of people are in the dark about their local bylaws. Do you know yours?

DNV looks at new tree laws

Large trees cut must be replaced Niamh Scallan nscallan@nsnews.com

A contentious new tree protection model that restricts homeowners from stripping their properties of trees stirred debate at a District of North Vancouver council workshop Monday night. Councillors were asked to consider a new “compensation model” during a workshop presentation on tree protection. Put forward by environmental protection officer Richard Boase, the model calls for a bylaw amendment to incorporate a new regulation that orders replacement tree planting whenever a tree more than 75 centimetres in diameter on private land is cut down. According to Boase, the model seeks to preserve 20

per cent canopy coverage on all private land in the district. Residents unwilling to replace trees would face off-site replacement fees, estimated at more than $550 per tree. Boase also proposed another bylaw amendment that calls for increased fines of up to $1,000 for illegal tree cutting. For Coun. Mike Little, the proposed model impinges on private property rights and wrongly presumes that district

residents want to clear cut their backyards. “We’re just fighting the homeowner here,” he said. “I don’t think we should have this assumption that people will want to denude their neighbourhoods en masse. There are a lot of residents who will protect and nurture their trees, and look after them quite happily.” But for others, the proposed bylaw amendments present a positive move for the district

— promoting the district’s environmental values, reducing property damage posed by aging trees and ensuring safety. “We’re talking about community benefit here,” Coun. Roger Bassam said. “What we’re doing here is managing and putting an imposition (on the community) for environmental reasons. I am quite pleased about this because, ultimately . . . there is a process in place.” “This is not a punitive bylaw,” Mayor Richard Walton said, supporting the suggestions put forward. “It’s a set of guidelines that we expect people to adhere to, and in the event that they don’t, we need to have a hammer.” “I hope we never have to use the hammer, but there are people out there who do misbehave,” he added. Walton referred to the proposedtreebylaw amendment as a work in progress and noted that district councillors will receive the bylaw in another council workshop before being moved to the public.

SAVION Glover has been credited with being an important figure in keeping the art of tap dancing alive, breathing new life into the classic genre. He brings his signature style to North Vancouver’s Centennial Theatre for performances on Nov. 4 and 5.

WHEN asked what advice he has for young tap dancers, Savion Glover says his message doesn’t really have that much to do with the art. “My message is just ‘be yourself.’ It doesn’t matter if you’re tap dancing or whatever,” he says. When Glover’s not on the road, the acclaimed performer spends countless hours at the HooFeRzCLuB School for Tap, which he founded in his hometown of Newark, New Jersey. “What I teach here is just self-education,” he says during a break between classes. “I don’t teach

tap as a combination, tap as a dance. I teach tap as a holistic approach to life. I would suggest that the kids respect their parents, and learn about their pioneers and be happy.” It’s advice formed as a result of one incredible professional experience after another. Highlights of Glover’s tap dancing career include countless appearances on Broadway, from his debut at age 10 in The Tap Dance Kid, to his involvement in Bring in ’da Noise, Bring in ’da Funk in the 1990s, which earned him a Tony Award. He’s also been featured in film and television, for example, 1989’s Tap, with Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis, Jr., and Sesame Street, respectively. He’s also a choreographer who’s in high demand, notably called on for the 2006 animated film Happy Feet. Glover’s dancing was used for the character Mumble. Glover’s introduction to tap dancing happened at age seven, seeing him attend the Hines-Hatchett Dance School (named for Maurice Hines and Frank Hatchett), in New York City. “I started performing professionally when I was about 10,” he says. “And that’s it. I didn’t know

that my love and respect for the dance would grow to be what it is. It was just something to do at first and then my life changed, again, once I met these men and people who were responsible for the advancement of the art form. My life changed and I’m very thankful and honoured to be a part of the tradition.” “Every experience has been a highlight in itself. It’s not just one moment that over shines or outweighs another. They all have been great. I look forward to everything that is to come,” he adds. Next week, Glover will bring his signature style to North Vancouver’s Centennial Theatre for a performance of his trio work, Bare Soundz. “Bare Soundz is more of an educational piece that we designed just to give the audience a chance to hear all the dance as music versus see the dance as a visual,” he says. “It just came about out of creation. It was just time to do this.” The show is being co-presented by Centennial Theatre, as part of its Electric Evenings series, and See Dancers page 33

LILA Downs pays tribute to Mexican ranchera legend Chavela Vargas Nov. 7 at UBC’s Chan Centre on a double bill with Spanish vocalist Buika. On Nov. 4, in conjunction with Downs visit to Vancouver, Pacific Cinémathèque screens Beto Gómez’s documentary Hasta el último trago... corazón! / Till the Last Drop…My Love!

in case you’re counting) which, filmmakers promise, is the last film in the bloody franchise. This one features Jigsaw’s survivors united to fend off one last terror. But with knife chairs, magnum eyehole traps and an electrified staircase zapping into the audience, does the plot even matter? Saw, in all its exploitative glory, is tailor-made for 3D. ■ Best Creepy Kids This one’s a tie, and both winners are in the same movie: Let Me In is the chilling tale of Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee, The Road), a terribly lonely middle-schooler bullied by his classmates and all but ignored by his parents. Then he meets Abby (Chloe Morentz), a wan child who only ventures out at night: shoeless, no less. Fans of the Swedish original called foul that the movie was remade so quickly, but Let Me In is a pleasantly scary, soulful remake. ■ Lifetime Achievement Award This award is presented to writer-director Wes Craven, gore guru and overseer of the Nightmares on Elm Street, The Scream franchise and The Hills Have Eyes, among others. We present this award not because of his past films, but in the hopes that now he might hang up the steely Freddy fingers and stop making them. Because after My Soul To Take, we just can’t take it anymore. You see, there’s this schizophrenic guy with seven personalities who kills his wife and is killed by police, but not before he transfers his personalities to seven babies born that night in hospital. Fast forward 16 years and now someone is killing the United Nations of teendom (there are some archetypal white kids, an Asian kid, and an African American kid who is also blind for good measure) with indiscriminate efficiency. This egregious mash-up of junk psychology, Native spirituality, random violence and bad costuming marks a low spot in Craven’s 40-year career. The 3D accompanying the film just adds insult to injury.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE

mattie à la mode

New chic threads on trend DEAR Mattie:

What should I wear to work this fall? Enquiring in Deep Cove

Dear Deep Cove: Dressing professionally has come back in fashion. Even the casual look has the “New Chic” styling. The New Chic is minimalist and practical. Luckily it is a comfortable, tailored look. Ladies want to look professional without being uncomfortable and having to spend too much time putting outfits together. The black pant is not only a staple in every woman’s wardrobe, it is now also a trendy piece. The lean black pant is the easiest piece to work with this season. If you don’t have a pair, then I strongly suggest you go buy one or even two. There are many styles to choose from, so take the time to see which fits best, because you are going to wear them often. Black has a style that can be dressed up as well as made casual. The fashionable styles are the boy fit that has a narrow leg with slat pockets. Other popular styles are the trouser cut, with a leg that flares slightly from the thigh to the ankle, and the true straight cut, which looks like a pair of jeans. Anyone can wear any of these three styles of black pant. There is a new fit that is curvier, with a higher rise to accommodate a fuller hip area and still has a slight boot cut to create a lean, vertical line. The new curvy pants are forgiving and worth a try. Trendier black pants are also available. There is a modern style that is an exaggerated boot cut. And, of course, the skinnies are still very popular. There are two types of skinnies: traditional ankle length and mid-calf, which complements the trendy boots this season. From the black pant you can build a professional wardrobe. White blouses and shirts are great pieces to start co-ordinating with. Although white shirts are everywhere, opt for something with colour, from pales to bold. Both will work this season. If you really like white, look for vertical stripes to add interest to your look. Minimalism does not have to be boring. White blouses are pretty this season with their pleats and ruffles. There are three-quarter sleeves that contribute to this season’s lean look. The collarless blouse is new and looks pretty chic. The white blouse and shirt can also be worn untucked with a black skinny belt. And, if you want to be really lean, the same styles can be found with the black blouse. If you want to wear a blazer, have some fun with it. Blazers are cropped, to the hip, with two or three buttons that add to the lean vertical look. Shoulders are rounded to add some femininity. Windowpane checks and tweeds in brown and grey are great additions to your professional wardrobe, if you want to add some texture to your look. Urban dressing is popular this season as it creates a sophisticated look. We all have things to do, why not look important while we are doing them?

STITTGEN Fine Jewelry, of West Vancouver, has been singled out for a national design award. The Canadian Jewellers Association has recognized Stittgen as a Top 3 finalist in the photo submitted trade organization’s Excellence in Design Competition, Coloured Gemstones category. “It’s just a huge achievement for Stittgen,” said company spokeswoman Julie Hamilton of the recognition, for a ring design by the jeweller’s European-trained master goldsmith Karin Bunzeit. The ring’s centre stone is a 12-carat green beryl mounted on a 19-karat white gold sculptured tulip shank, with by two cognac diamonds placed on the sides and 20 small diamonds as corner accents. Beryl is a mineral that contains the gem varieties emerald (dark green), aquamarine (blue) and morganite (pink), said Vanoula Steinberg, gemologist and jewelry appraiser at Stittgen. Traces of chromium are what give emerald its dark green colour. Winners will be announced at the JVC Jewellers Ball in Toronto next week.

Dry cleaners reduce their footprint Erin McPhee

emcphee@nsnews.com

TWO North Vancouver dry cleaners are among those taking steps to reduce their impact on the environment. Julie Minichiello, of Paul’s of North Shore (soon to be known as Minichiello’s) tailors and cleaners, has opted to take steps to green their operations in an interest in protecting the environment, as well as to protect her family’s legacy. Her father, Paul, started the business 45 years ago, originally as a custom tailor shop. “He became a tailor in Italy and then moved to Canada and worked around town for quite a while and then finally opened his own

shop,” says Julie. Over the years Paul became increasingly frustrated that many local dry cleaners couldn’t clean and press his customers’ suits properly. “So he learned everything there was to know about the dry cleaning industry,” she says. Julie became a partner in the company in January 2000. Her father semi-retired at that time but has remained involved in the business, offering support, guidance and expertise. They continue to offer both custom tailor and dry cleaning services out of their Lower Lonsdale location. “I try and maintain my father’s integrity by staying on top of all leading changes in the industry and staying on top of all environmental issues as well,” she says.

“This day in age with all the new regulations through Environment Canada, nobody should worry about the dry cleaners. As long as they’re complying with the standards, it’s quite safe,” she adds. Among Julie’s recent efforts to ensure their business leaves as minimal a footprint as possible, she’s just replaced their fifth generation dry cleaning machine with an even newer model, a Bowe Permac. “The fifth generation machine has absolutely no way of polluting the environment, whether it’s through vapour or liquid or through your clothing. It has a sensor in the door and it won’t unlock if there’s any vapour or liquid solution left in the garments,” she says. It all gets compressed down and put in the holding tank before the door can be opened and the clothes removed. This process not only proves safe for wearers, “it’s also safe for all employees,” says Julie. Other improvements they’ve made include using Energy Star appliances wherever possible, biodegradable bags and they have three types of fabric bags for purchase. “They’re really neat, because they convert from a bag that you just throw your dirty laundry into and then

Paul’s also accepts everything they give out, like bags or twist ties, reusing them where they can. Errands and deliveries are made in a sustainable

manner, thanks to Julie having won a recent Ford contest. She was awarded a Ford Transit Connect, a fuel-efficient van designed for small business owners, through a Ford Canada promotion. Finally, Julie successfully completed an environmental dry cleaning

I’ve got a 23-month-old daughter and I want to do everything in my power to make sure that the earth is as clean as possible for her and her children,” she says. Another North Shore dry cleaning company owner taking similar steps to green his operations is Aly Jamal, owner of Tip Top Drycleaners and Mountain Way Cleaners. “We’re looking out for the environment in every possible way,” he says. Like Julie, Aly has updated his machines at both outlets, installing fifth generation Firbimatic dry cleaning machines. “We wanted to change the old machines, which were almost 30 years old. We wanted to go to a new eco-friendly machine, which uses less power, less solvent and clothes come out much better,” he says. Tip Top and Mountain Way use biodegradable bags and sell reusable cloth bags. Aly also updated their shirt-press-

ers appreciate their efforts. “They’re quite happy especially for the fact that their clothing doesn’t smell like the dry cleaning fluids,” says Julie. Aly agrees, saying he’s had many people stop in to see his new machines in action. “The customers like the finish of the material because there is no chemical left in it,” he says.

NORTH Vancouver native Jen Rustemeyer and her partner Grant Baldwin went headto-head to see who could produce the least amount of garbage in a one-year period.

CULTURE

No place like home in the Heart of the City Annual Downtown Eastside fest focusing on First Nations artists Cheryl Rossi Contributing Writer

THE seventh annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival continues to celebrate the artists and activists of the neighbourhood with 12 days of performances, films, forums, workshops, visual art and historic walks and talks. This year’s festival focuses more than ever on First Nations artists and will animate sidewalks and parks with music and dance. “We have the largest urban ‘reserve,’ certainly in Western Canada, if not Canada,” says Terry Hunter, executive artistic producer of the festival and executive director of Vancouver Moving Theatre. The theme of this year’s festival is heart and home, so it also makes sense to honour First Nations artists when the locale where the celebrations happen are on traditional Coast Salish territory, he added. The Git Hayetsk Dancers or “people of the copper shield” kicked off the first evening of the festival with a free show at the Carnegie Community Centre, Oct. 27. Led by Mike Dangeli and Mique’l Askren, the dancers sing songs of their ancestors and create new songs, dances and handmake drums, rattles, masks and regalia to reflect the experiences of First Nations people today. Two years ago, festival organizers partnered with the local Constant Arts Society to see a fallen cedar carved into a canoe and launched from Crab, also known as Portside, Park. “It was a wonderful event that brought together dignitaries from the three local nations, which does not happen very often,” says Hunter. “It was also an event that brought together the youth with the elders.” When Christine Germano of Constant Arts Society proposed a new project, festival organizers leapt at the opportunity. Chief Henry Robertson, who originally hails from the Haisla Nation near Kitimat, and his son Henry Jr. have been busy carving half a fallen cedar from the Stanley Park storm of 2006. Local carvers and community youth are carving the other half. The new poles for the “backyard of the community,” Oppenheimer Park, will be celebrated Nov. 6. Festival organizers have long wanted to hear more music outdoors in the Downtown Eastside. With the help of the Community Arts Council of Vancouver’s Creative Pathways initiative, which has received financial backing from the city’s Great Beginnings Program, choirs, drummers and bands will add new layers to the rhythm of parks and streets. The festival has helped revive the Carnegie Village Choir led by Beverly Dobrinsky who was the artist in residence at the Carnegie last year. The Carnegie Community Centre Theatre will showcase the choir Nov. 5. Vocalist Dalannah Gail Bowen has formed a drumming group of aboriginal women over 55 called the Snowy Owl Drummers that will play at various locations throughout the festival. Brad Muirhead, who leads the Carnegie Street Band, now plays sousaphone, a type of tuba, with the new Deet Street band, a six-piece that plays a little bit of everything, predominantly

WITH more than 80 events spread out over 12 days there are a multitude of reasons to check out the Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival (www.heartofthecityfestival.com). classics and jazz. Three professional musicians play alongside and mentor three amateurs in the band. Creative Pathways has nurtured the above groups and a larger stable of artists with professional training and rehearsals. The hope is that members of the Downtown Eastside community will see their neighbours perform and that people from other parts of the city will like what they hear and book the acts and artists to entertain in their communities. With more than 80 events over 12 days (Oct. 27 to Nov. 7), including a performance by Barrio Flamenco, Nov. 2, the proceeds of which will go to the Enterprising Women Making Art program of ATIRA Women’s Resource Society, a Day of the Dead fiesta and procession, literary events, documentaries, a historic walking tour of Jewish Strathcona and a comedy night, there are a multitude of reasons to check out the festival. “This is our history, our community and our stories,”

Dancers focus on the musicality of the form From page 13

The Vancouver Tap Dance Society, Nov. 4 and 5. Glover has been performing Bare Soundz for about four years. “We approach this like one would approach a music set, a jazz set. So there’s the choreography and then there’s improvisation as well,” he says. Joining him for the performance is dancer Marshall Davis, Jr., whom Glover’s known for more than 10 years. “Definitely between myself and Marshall there’s a special chemistry that we have. We share the same, I guess, appreciation for the music and the dance as well and for the men and women responsible for the advancement of the art form.” The third featured performer is Keitaro Hosokawa, who they just recently connected with over the past year or so. He’s filling in for one of their regular dancers. What’s interesting about the work is that there’s no music, just extensive percussion sounds produced by the footwork of the dancers, each situated atop a miked wooden platform. The experience always proves eye-opening for audience members. “Just allowing the dance to be the music, this opportunity hasn’t been given to them through tap dance . . . .” he says. “So it’s an educational piece, both from our end and then receiving it as education for the audience member.” Glover has been credited with being an important figure in keeping the art of tap dancing alive, breathing new life into the classic genre. However, just like his humble introduction, he’s humble in response to this belief. “That’s just a matter of opinion,” he says. “I’m not doing anything different from what the greats were doing or were trying to get people to understand about the dance. I’m just continuing on from where they left off — those greats being Gregory Hines, Jimmy Slyde, Lon Chaney, Henry LeTang and all those wonderful contributors to the art.”

DJ Shadow sheds light on new material ■ DJ Shadow, Commodore Ballroom, Monday, Oct. 25.

Alysa Lechner Contributing Writer

HIPPIES, stoners, tattooed rockabillies, dreadheads and Bloods and Crips alike gathered together to witness the phenomenon that is DJ Shadow, Monday night at the Commodore Ballroom.

NEWS photo Sprout

Hip-hop opener, Pigeon John, had insane energy and it was easy to tell how happy he was to be there, as he marched on spot, yelled eccentric one-liners between songs and basically displayed as much self-containment as a shaken up pop can. Pigeon John is an all-around entertainer. The crowd didn’t know whether or not he was going to start singing or rapping, but they knew that it was unconventional and they knew that it was good. One of the songs that really stuck with me was “So Gangster” where he sings “I’m a gangster for real, I feel so damn gangster, I’m a gangster for real…Sittin in my backyard, lookin at a little squirrel, I’m drinkin some coffee, feel like a whole different world.” At first blush this seems like the polar opposite of gangster: caffeine and rodent-watching? Get real. But as I thought about it a little more, it’s the epitome of gangster because it’s just about relishing life and doing and being you. Pigeon John’s attitude, philosophy, talent and looks are so marketable that it’s almost perplexing he’s not more famous. If his performance last night demonstrated anything, it’s that he’s got the hustle and charisma to flourish and if all goes well, will definitely be clogging the mainstream in the days to come. The crowds on the outskirts of the venue began to leak onto the main floor from their respective tables and chairs as the countdown to takeoff into the Shadowsphere drew ever closer. DJ Shadow, the man who crafted the flawless Endtroducing….. in 1996 is currently working on new material for an album due out next year and decided to test it out on his fans. The curtains parted to reveal a huge dome: a scaled down version of our native Science World Omnimax Theatre that would house Shadow like a snow globe for the remainder of the show. Stepping centre stage in a backwards baseball cap, and a baseball tee with “Undefeated” scrawled across the chest, See Images page 40

■ Kings of Leon — Come Around Sundown (RCA) Rating: 6 (out of 10) The Kings of Leon moved into centre stage with their last release, Only by the Night. They sold millions of copies and filled huge stadiums wherever they played. Did all that success change the Followill boys? Apparently it has because instead of growth on this latest release we are left with more of the same. Not that Come Around Sundown is a bad album.

outtakes from Only by the Night. Lots of heavy beats and not enough finesse fill the speakers. The first song, “The End” gives the album a strong start that is followed by “Radioactive,” probably the best track and the first single released. “Pyro” has a great beat but some whiny vocals and from there the songs begin to let you down. Based on initial sales KOL will be laughing all the way to the bank but their future efforts will need to step away from this type of formula arena rock if they hope to make repeated trips. — Terry Peters ■ Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks — Crazy for Christmas (Surfdog Records) Rating: (8 out of 10) ■ Shelby Lynne — Merry Christmas (Everso Records) Rating: 8 (out of 10) Two unlikely sources for Christmas cheer. Hipster Hicks may be an acquired taste — what Django

Reinhardt might sound like if he read R. Crumb comix, dropped acid back in the day and lived on a houseboat in San Francisco. Hicks is a genius and doesn’t suffer fools gladly but that doesn’t mean he’s above putting out a Christmas record. If you’re a Hicks fan this one has it all — covers, new

tunes and plenty of goofing off in his own inimitable style. Tracks like “Christmas Mornin’ ” (a rewrite of “Where’s the Money”), “Somebody Stole My Santa Suit” and “I’ve Got Christmas by the Tail” are all excellent additions to a catalogue which includes tunes like “How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away” and “I Scare Myself.” Shelby Lynne’s Merry Christmas disc is an old school southern delight mixing her take on seasonal classics plus some new ones as well. The album cover features old family photographs of a snowy Christmas morning and Lynne’s music goes for a similar timeless vibe. She includes favourites such as Tex Logan’s “Christmas Time’s AComing” and Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” with new material (“Ain’t Nothin’ Like Christmas”) written especially for the recording. Like Elvis Presley’s classic 1957 Christmas album, Shelby Lynne’s take on the season is a soulful downhome treat. — John Goodman

So there she was represented at the sale and the six little Polaroids sold for 222,000 bucks. Which blew me away. And while I was watching this circus I suddenly began to hear the voice of the dog. Marilyn said in one of her quotes, ‘Men have used me, women have judged me and the dog loved me,’ she said. I knew that the dog was with her for the last two turbulent years of her life before she died. I suddenly heard that dog’s voice and thought that it would be the narrator of possibly a very funny and very new novel that would deliberately take one of the most written about women in the world and look at that craziness from a whole new perspective.

■ The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog and of his friend Marilyn Monroe by Andrew O’Hagan. (McClelland & Stewart, 288 pages).

John Goodman jgoodman@nsnews.com

SCOTTISH author Andrew O’Hagan helped kick off the 23rd annual Vancouver International Writers and Readers Festival last week at Performance Works.

In his new novel, The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog and of his friend Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra presents the Hollywood icon with a Maltese terrier to cheer her up as she’s going through her divorce from Arthur Miller. The author uses that true story as a starting point to write about a period (1960-62) in America when Old and New World forces were dramatically changing the socio-cultural landscape. We see and hear everything through Maf. Sinatra’s initial act of kindness is loaded with cultural connotations that the novel explores by reimagining that well-documented time and place from a new perspective. Marilyn’s pet gives us the lowdown on how it really went down. Maybe. North Shore News: Maf the Dog takes Norman Mailer’s factoids to a whole new level. Andrew O’Hagan:Well, he

seem natural to me that some novelists would choose to entertain the readers with that. North Shore News: How did you come to write about Marilyn Monroe? Andrew O’Hagan: I was in New York a number of years ago when they were selling her personal belongings at Christie’s. I was at the auction and it was a fascinating spectacle and that’s how I would describe it — it was a spectacle more than a sale. There were many famous individuals in that room waving their paddles wildly trying to buy some artifacts that would bring them closer to the life of this dead icon. Among the items they were selling were six little Polaroid photographs of the dog given to her by Frank Sinatra, Maf. I’ve always been interested in Marilyn as kind of a representative of self-invention in the 20th century. She touched on so many aspects of 20th century culture in politics and psychoanalysis and movies.

North Shore News: Maf is the calm at the centre of Marilyn’s storm. Andrew O’Hagan: Growing up I was always entertained by that form of writing, whether it be in poetry or in the novel, where an animal would prove itself to be more rational than the humans surrounding him or her. I grew up in Scotland, obviously, and one of the great exponents of that form was the national poet Robert Burns. His famous poem, called The Twa Dogs, is a great work of art about two dogs Caesar and Luath. It’s a very political and satirical work. I was also thinking of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels and works by Cervantes and John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charlie — so many of these books I loved as a kid and I allowed that influence to flow freely into the mind of this dog who would be my narrator. North Shore News: As far as Marilyn is concerned a lot that has been written about her are slippery truths. A good place for fiction to start. Andrew O’Hagan: You’re absolutely right. For me that was the cornerstone of the whole thing. I wouldn’t have been interested in writing analysis in just any dog’s voice about just any personality. Marilyn is perhaps the most over-described enigma in 20th century popular culture and so it seemed appropriate to me that the last word, at least the last word as far as I’m concerned, would be given to a supposedly dumb animal. A creature that had no voice, no personality and no experience that in my rendering comes out to be perhaps more eloquent and more understanding than a lot of the humans that claim to be her friend. That was for me the irony and fiction can do that. I think the magic and the wonder that exists in literature — that’s the part that’s always interested me — the part that sends your mind in a whole new

direction about something you think you’re familiar with. It seemed to bring so much together for me and it was great fun to write. I’ve been amazed by the response — it’s been translated into more languages than any of my books previously. This connects with people I think because they are so familiar with the Marilyn narrative. Marilyn more than any other individual has been invented and reinvented, including by herself by the way. She was a great self mythmaker during her lifetime and of course there’s the biography industry and the conspiracy theorists, they’ve all had a go but rather than take her out of the picture for me that put her right in the centre of the frame — that she was somebody who it would be hard to get to the core truth that underneath all that glamour and all that mythology there was a girl. I thought the dog perhaps could bring us close to the actual woman and remind us that there was a human being in there. Marilyn’s celebrity, the one that everybody knows, was really born in Canada during the shooting of the movie Niagara in 1952. That’s where she learned that walk with her eyes half closed and one of the heels on her shoes sewn down deliberately to give her that funny way of walking. There’s a scene where she walks across the carpark on the way to the motel where Joseph Cotten is and that’s the first time you see the famous Marilyn as a fully created person — a character she made in her own head and had to inhabit. There are differences between that character, that invented thing, and the woman who is moving between what we might call provable, tangible reality and pure dream and magic. She went running between those two poles like a ball in a pinball machine. North Shore News: Truth is stranger than fiction. You can’t make this stuff up — Frank Sinatra gave Marilyn Monroe a dog and she named him “Maf.” All true. Andrew O’Hagan: That’s the thing, I don’t suppose I will ever be in this situation again as a novelist. I spent 10 years researching this book. That sale I was telling you about happened at Christie’s in New York in 1999. During those years I did write other books but I always had Maf in the back of my mind and boiling away on the back of the stove. I would go to California and different parts of the world to research the life of this dog. I got so into the swing with this dog See Monroe page 37

BOOKS

Monroe eventually saw through Sinatra

From page 36

and in every town I found things so much stranger than fiction. Almost every page could stand up in court, it’s all based on actual meetings, actual occasions, it’s absolutely dateworthy. Those last two years described in the book are based on eyewitness accounts. The material, to my mind, was crying out for a new perspective. “I’m not saying that they were all mutton-heads, but they took the menace of B-movie gangsters and mixed it with the gutsy malice you might find in a sorority circle, surrounding Frank in a bubble of free-floating aggression and mild bitchiness, a state of affairs which appeared to make him feel good about himself. Frank liked people to be frightened of him but also dependent; it was his favourite combination in someone he considered a friend.” — from The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog and of his friend Marilyn Monroe by Andrew O’Hagan North Shore News: Frank seems to be an unlikely friend especially for her. You give the preconditions best for those who wanted to be Frank’s friend. Andrew O’Hagan: The stories about Frank were legendary. I spoke to people who knew him and the picture that emerged in my head was a man who was borderline psychotic and who was invariably cruel to Marilyn while pretending to be her friend. Just through the drafts I could see him emerging as a bit of a villain. Frank hadn’t been good for her or kind to her although he was kind enough to give her Maf so that’s certainly

something but by the end she felt he was one of her abusers. It’s funny how characters form themselves in fiction but for me I can say categorically that too was based on quite thorough research. The thing that she felt by the end of her life was that he was one of her torturers actually. Among the many men who sought to use her Sinatra’s name was quite near the top. She communicated that to people she was working with at the time — and she was often in a desperate frame of mind by the end and not always reliable — but she certainly felt that Frank had made fun of her, undervalued her and excluded her. Some guy who worked at MGM during that period told me that at dinner parties she would be trying to describe some element of politics or the Kennedys or acting and he would say, “Shut up Norma Jean you’re just so stupid.’” He insisted on calling her by the name that she had left behind and insisted on taking her down a peg or two so Frank entered into my villain category for that. North Shore News: Except

for the hired help almost everybody in Marilyn’s life was a celebrity. I guess that was a byproduct of living in Hollywood. Andrew O’Hagan: Also I think it’s a byproduct of having a certain kind of insecurity. We observe in life now, if you look closely, some celebrities only seem truly comfortable if they are in a restaurant where other celebrities are. They need to be made to feel special all the time — that’s why they exist. There’s a kind of pathology to celebrity in some cases I would argue where people forget what friendship means. Marilyn was an early version of that pathology of celebrity. She wanted to see people who would somehow enhance her status and her self-image. So hanging out with major politicians or other movie stars elevated her in her own eyes.

North Shore News: The period you write about was especially volatile historically. In Hollywood the studio system as it was known was falling apart and on a global scale the Cold War was in full effect. Andrew O’Hagan: I think Marilyn really represents that real moment of postwar change in Western culture. There was a sense of naturalism and sexual freedom that was provocative certainly but also quite liberating. The redness of the lipstick, the skirt going up past her waist that was quite an alarming and also liberating thing to see happen in a movie. She really caught that certain time in the movies and became the representative of a new optimism about sexual relations. And that was all before the famously permissive ’60s. Marilyn died

in ’62 so she was really a ’60s figure before her time. She opened the path to the ’60s in the way Jack Kerouac did or perhaps Bob Dylan. It was right there the moment where somebody threw the lightswitch and suddenly it was the ’60s. Icons who were much more in step with this newly invented thing called the teenager. The teenager was invented in 1956 and the ’60s became inevitable at that point. Marilyn was riding the high wave perhaps she was a transitional figure between the old days of Hollywood and the more sexually liberated civil rights minded ’60s. For me, that period was absolutely crucial — the world changed during those handful of years.

North Shore News: Her story is never far from the public eye — this month she is on the cover of Vanity Fair. Andrew O’Hagan: I noticed there has been some bloggers and some controversialists complaining about Marilyn being on the cover of Vanity Fair — as if putting Angelina Jolie would be a more winning formula — but it seems to me Marilyn’s enduring power has to do with the fact that she was in some way truly iconic. She represents opposites. In every generation people have their gods and goddesses. The Greeks loved their gods and goddesses to be people in whom gigantic opposites met and if we accept that as a definition it works perfectly for Marilyn because there has never been anybody who represented those opposites quite so well in our times. She was so beautiful and yet so exposed to ugliness, she seemed such an icon of health and yet was so sick and self-loathing. All

these things came together in this woman and she’s become a representative of something much bigger than herself. A certain human vulnerability at the centre of seeming success. There was an ordinary woman in there somewhere and that too fascinates us. “Some women need a full accompanying silence to help them speak, and that was how it seemed sometimes to be with my owner, the pupils of her eyes engorged in front of the mirror as she completed her rituals of becoming. Next

to me on the piano was a framed photograph of Marilyn with a letter by Cecil Beaton. ‘Somehow we know that this extraordinary performance is pure charade,’ he wrote. I muzzled up to it. ‘The puzzling truth is that Miss Monroe is a make-believe siren, unsophisticated as a Rhine maiden, innocent as a sleepwalker. Like Giraudoux’s Ondine, she is only fifteen years old and will never die.” — from The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog and of his friend Marilyn Monroe by Andrew O’Hagan.

Images were projected onto DJ Shadow’s dome From page 34

Shadow announced that he was here to “provide an alternative to all the bull_” that currently swarms the music scene. With that declaration, he was ready to hop driver’s seat in his sphere-craft and let the crowd ride shotgun. And what a trip it was. I could feel the bass so hard in my chest that at one point I thought I might puke, in a good way. Shadow’s set walloped and pounded without hesitation. Granted it wasn’t full of funk samples and horror movie quotes like I had hoped, Shadow rocketed the audience into an entirely otherworldly experience. As if the music itself wasn’t mind-bending enough, images of chainsaws, aliens, and psychedelic patterns were projected onto Shadow’s dome and a backdrop behind it. At one point, the dome was made to look like a basketball, baseball and soccer ball while the screen behind it became each one’s respective playing field, forcing the audience to feel the jolt, bounce and bang of each ball. Once “Blood on the Motorway” hit, Shadow was long overdue for a breakdown, and it provided for a calming respite if only for a moment before he catapulted into his two biggest hits, “Six Days” and “Organ Donor” at the end of his set, sending the crowd into a hysterical mania. It’s no wonder he’s called DJ Shadow since he pretty much casts one over anyone that succeeds him. Unfortunately, the double-edge on that is he also casts a shadow on his past self, having never come close to producing anything as well received as Entroducing….. And if last night’s show was a sneak peek into his album to come, it’s a fairly safe bet that Entroducing…..’s top spot in DJ Shadow’s discography won’t be stolen any time soon. Be that as it may, Shadow’s only competition in the game is himself, so he can proudly sport his “Undefeated” baseball tee as much as he likes.

The eldest of 6 children, Don became a teacher at the age of 18 and taught in Penticton and Vancouver. In 1942, Don married Phyllis Cosens, the love of his life, and then left to serve in the RAF in England.

He came back to Vancouver in 1956 to teach teachers at the Normal School and then at UBC when the faculty of education opened until his retirement in 1978. Hundreds of future music teachers passed through his theory, harmony and conducting classes. Intensely curious about the world, Don and Phyl traveled extensively until her death in 1994.

THE all new Audi A7 Sportback is a great-looking four-door coupe with a nifty rear door/hatch that offers wagon-like utility. It’s available in Europe now but won’t be hitting Canadian dealerships until next spring.

Columnist DAVID CHAO reviews the 2011 Infiniti M37 next week in REV

Attractive A7 on the way David Chao and Bob McHugh Contributing Writers

THE all new Audi A7 Sportback is a fresh approach to luxury car design. What you see is an extremely attractive four-door coupe. Less obvious is a fifth rear door/hatch that allows wagon-like utility and the A7’s hidden, lightweight yet very rigid body structure. “Audi buyers typically place a higher emphasis on the esthetics of the car,” said Cort Nielsen, public relations manager, Audi Canada. “The look of this car is absolutely gorgeous plus it has all the qualities that make it an Audi

Audi’s all new Sportback a fresh take on luxury — the technology, the interior and its fit and finish. And that oak dash (an option) is stunning.” While big in its physical dimensions, the A7 weighs in at 1,695 kilograms. It’s powered by a potent yet highly efficient V-6 engine with hybrid-like fuel economy technology that’s mated with an advanced Quattro drive system with a torque-vectoring rear differential. The Audi A7 could be described as a

“Oh, but what about all those horrible things you said about the Pontiac Aztek?” Well, granted, I may have made a few well-placed critiques of one or two models, but nothing excessive. “What about all the sweeping condemnations and huge generalizations and saying that General Motors could take lessons on build quality from studying the Little Tykes pedal car?” OK, perhaps one or two vast sweeping generalizations, but — “Yes, and what about that time you said you’d rather have

ANYONE who’s familiar with my columns over the years might have developed the impression that I’ve got something against the American car manufacturing industry. Not true.

Porsche Panamera Lite: all the goodness without the calories! It’s a little wider than a Panamera but very close in every other external measurement, including wheelbase. They both have five doors, a coupe-like body design and a concealed tail spoiler that automatically deploys at high speed. The A7, however, is expected to be about half the price of a Panamera. Over at Mercedes-Benz, the CLS is another vehicle that is likely to be crossshopped with the A7. An attractive four-door sedan with a coupe roofline, pricing for the CLS starts at $88,500. Key design elements of the A7 are its long hood, long wheelbase and short

body overhangs. Another is what’s called a “tornado line” or body crease that starts at the headlights, extends along the side, gently slopes towards the tail lights and then extends across the rear. Most of the A7’s body skins are made of aluminum, including the fenders, the lids and doors. The A7 also comes with frameless door glass, side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals and LED taillights. Its covert rear spoiler automatically appears at 130 kilometres per hour and retracts again at 80 km/h, or you can activate it at any time via a button on the dash. Up front the grille is unmistakably Audi, with some subtle changes shared with the new A8. The A7 comes standard with “xenon plus technology” headlights and a new all-weather light, integrated into the headlight. Radar sensors, for its optional adaptive cruise control (with stop and go function), occupy the usual fog light locations. An adaptive headlight system with LED headlights is also available. These longlife headlights are extremely energy-efficient and emit a white light that’s easier on eyes. The system also includes variable headlight range control (low/high beam), which uses a small camera on the interior mirror to detect the lights of approaching vehicles or communities. A unique feature of the adaptive headlight control unit is its link with the MMI

navigation plus system. The navigation system sends advance route data to the light computer and it can do stuff like automatically switching on a cornering light before entering an intersection. It can even automatically switch the headlights from driving on the right to driving on the left, if you change countries. Audi’s signature daytime running lights are strips of 18 LED lights that give the appearance of a curved band on the lower edge of each headlight assembly. And below them are the turn signals, another strip of (11) LED lights. The power-operated rear hatch extends up into the A7’s roofline and when open exposes a large fully-carpeted luggage compartment. It offers 535 litres of cargo space and when the 60:40 split rear seatbacks are folded down it increases to 1,390 litres. Inside, the A7 offers luxurious form-fit seating for four with separate zone climate controls for all positions. As we’ve come to expect from Audi, the interior layout is superb and the materials used and craftsmanship are second to none. The new optional layered oak veneer trim not only looks rich and refined, it has a textured natural feel. But it’s not until you slide into the driver’s seat you start to realize the amazing onslaught of new technology that’s at your disposal in an A7. Available features include a new touchpad that the driver can use to perform numerous functions and it allows the use of a finger to

WITH Halloween parties and trick-or-treaters coming up this weekend, the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia is calling on parents and drivers to plan ahead and make smart decisions for a safe weekend of festivities.

their ability to fully see what’s going on around them. Put the mask over your own face to check the visibility and make any necessary adjustments. ■ The best ghouls hear everything too: As adults, we know that hearing is just as important as seeing to ensure our safety around roads. Remind your children not to use their cellphone or listen to their MP3 player — they should keep their fun focused on Halloween and all the candy. ■ Safety in numbers: If you’re going for a walk on this spookiest of nights, you’ll be safer in a group. Walking in numbers will help drivers and others see your children and they should always be accompanied by an appropriate number of adults. ■ Gone haunting: If your kids are heading out for some trick-or-treating fun, make sure you help them plan their route ahead of time so they get home safely. Consider a route that takes them through a quiet residential area away from busy main roads and parking lots. And remind them to cross streets at designated points.

Here are ICBC’s spooktacular safety tips for parents and drivers to ensure a safe and fun weekend for all: For parents ■ Dress to be seen: Let’s not spoil our kids’ fun. Halloween is about putting on the spookiest outfit possible and that often involves dark colours. A good solution is to buy some reflective tape that you can add to the outfit or even to their shoes or bag — as long as it makes them stand out against the dark road. ■ The best ghouls see everything: Scary masks are a key part of many Halloween costumes but it’s important that your child wears a mask that doesn’t hinder

AT

For drivers ■ A fright’s just around the corner: Drivers need to slow down and expect the unexpected. Children can easily get caught up in the excitement of Halloween and forget to use caution, so slow down and be especially alert in residential areas. Limit any distractions in your car so your focus is solely on the road ahead. ■ The ghouls may not notice you: Children may have very limited visibility while wearing masks and costumes — don’t assume they see you approaching. And remember to always yield to pedestrians. By doing so, you help ensure they cross the road safely. ■ Beware of those dark alleys: Surprises often lurk in the darkest of places so enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully. Watch for little trick-or-treaters when backing up. ■ Don’t end on a true scare: If you’re hosting or attending a Halloween party, always ensure there are safe options to get home, such as designated drivers or taxi numbers at hand.

pull images and information from Google Earth up on the monitor and integrate them with the navigation route. It turns a generic map into pictures of real buildings and landmarks — very cool. It worked fine on the island of Sardinia in the middle of the Mediterranean and will work almost anywhere else in the world (I’m told), including the United States. Unfortunately, the bandwidth used by Canadian cellphone providers is not sufficient, according to Nielsen, to support this system. The top-notch optional audio system in an A7 is an Advanced Sound System from Bang & Olufsen. It features 1,300 watts of power and 15 speakers. When turned on, two little speakers pop up out from the top corners of the dash. It sounds odd, but looks cool. The athleticism of the A7 quickly became evident on the mostly narrow and twisty roads of northern Sardinia. Our route was mainly inland, through a mountainous part of the island and we went as far north as the town of Palau, which has car ferry connections to Corsica and the Italian mainland. The Canadian A7 will come with a 3.0-litre TFSI V-6 engine and the latest Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Audi’s engine philosophy equates to “smaller is better” and it uses forced induction and direct injection to achieve maximum power output. The blower on this engine is a supercharger and it uses two downstream intercoolers to cool the compressed air. All of which allows the 3.0-litre to produce up to 300 horsepower and 325 foot-pounds of torque available between 2,900 and 4,500 r.p.m. It’s a smooth and quiet-revving engine that allows the A7 to sprint to 100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds, according to Audi. An auto-stop feature turns the engine off when the vehicle stops and instantly restarts the engine when the driver’s foot releases from the brake pedal. The fuel savings allowed a combined Euro fuel economy rating of 8.2 litres/100 km. Final figures for Canada will come later. Two diesel engine choices are also offered in the European A7 and we were very impressed by the 3.0 TDI. Quiet, responsive and gobs of low-end torque make it a very pleasant and easy vehicle to drive — hopefully it makes it to Canada someday. The Audi A7 Sportback will be available in Europe this fall but Canadian Audi dealerships won’t get it until the second quarter of next year. “It will probably be offered with two packages, a Premium and an S-Line and there will be stand alone options,” according to Nielson. “And expect prices to be between A6 and A8,” which would put it in the high $60,000 to mid $70,000 range.

Ford puts thrills in both guzzlers and greenies From page 48

NEWS file photo

FORD’S Mustang is a blue-collar hero, a strong and humble performer that gets the best of cars double its price while channeling Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.”

Feeling the chill? Don’t give your Honda the cold shoulder.

syphilitic boils than drive a Saturn Ion?” Aha! I never said that at all! I said I’d rather have syphilitic lesions. Anyway, you can see how people can have possibly got the wrong end of the stick. While it is easy to point to the mistakes made by Ford, Chrysler and General Motors over the past decade, and come to the quietly logical conclusion that it would be better to be afflicted with end-stage venereal disease rather than be behind the wheel of any of them, it’s not like they haven’t also created cars that are as fun to drive as the activity that preceded contracting said venereal diseases. But perhaps you’re not aware of what’s available on the domestic manufacturers lots. Perhaps your last brush with an American vehicle was a brief dalliance with something like a Reliant K-Car or a Pontiac Sunfire, and after a strong course of penicillin eliminated the burning and the itching you’ve been unwilling to even look at anything that’s not a Volkswagen or Toyota or Mazda. Here are six reasons you should: Ford: Mustang and Fiesta I want you to picture an uptown New York bar. Six or seven buffed, tanned guys in threehundred-dollar jeans, designer shirts, fancy shoes and gelled up hair — basically the cast of Jersey Shore — are all loudly consuming martinis and Jaeger-bombs and fancy tequila, and pushing each other around. A guy walks in dressed in Levi’s and a white shirt, in the manner of Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.,” and orders a Budweiser. He stands quietly at the bar while the other dudes yell and shove and call each other names and fight over leathery-skinned women, slowly finishes his beer, stands up, takes them all

outside and kicks seven kinds of hell out of them. That’s your 2011 Mustang. The new engines available in both the V-6 and V-8 models make the updated Mustang a true blue-collar hero. For the budget-minded, the 300 horsepower V-6 puts you in the same ring as the highest-end Hyundai Genesis Coupe and comes within striking distance of Nissan’s 370Z. The 5.0 Mustang brings a world of hurt to cars costing twice as much, and it’s not just straight-line stuff either. In skidpad, slalom and braking tests, the V-8 ‘Stang will hang right with BMW’s $80,000 M3, long the benchmark for handling prowess. At the opposite end of the scale there’s the diminutive Fiesta. Generally, bargain-basement pricing on a domestic lot means automotive purgatory: until you can scrape together the cash for something nice, you get something nasty. Not so with the Fiesta. It may not come close to matching the Mustang’s staggering speed, but in terms of fun to drive factor, it’s probably the best small car available on the market today. Brightly-coloured and packed full of features, or in conservative grey without a single option, the Fiesta will still put a smile on your face and leave some change in your jeans. The way they’ve been flying off the shelves, it’s a wonder Ford didn’t bring their euro-styled hatchback over sooner. GM: The CTS-V and Volt Time to use our imaginations again. This time imagine you’ve just shelled out $100K+ for a German-marque barnstormer like an AMG Mercedes or a BMW M. You might be sitting there at the lights, confident that your hardearned money has bought you the automotive equivalent of world domination. Surely, with

CADILLAC’S CTS coupe is part of a rapid transformation from big ol’ boats to straight up speedsters for GM’s luxury line.

Caddy’s CTS-V line sells speed

From page 52

that amount of horsepower underfoot, you’re the king of the jungle, top of the food chain, the alpha dog. Then somebody pulls up next to you in a Cadillac with a supercharged V-8 that’s like somebody cross-bred a great white shark with an entire pride of lions and outfitted the result with leather seats and a nice stereo. Cadillac’s transformation from luxo-barge

shipyard to speed merchants has happened with a rapidity that would break some of their previous clients’ arthritic bones. Anything in the CTS-V line, be it coupe, sedan or wagon, is sharp and angular and unapologetically powerful. They roar and bellow with almost unlimited thrust, but these are not merely Corvettes redressed in cheap, poorly fitting suits.

B.C. police fine 19,500 for cellphone use Jonathan Fowlie

“I remember when we made the decision to go ahead with this and one of the parts of the debate that I remember related to enforceability — could it be enforced and then would it be enforced?” he added. “I guess we have our answer.” Drivers who are caught talking or texting can face fines of $167 under the new law, and officials say the first six months of fines amount to about $3.4 million. All of this money will go to municipalities through the return of traffic-fine revenue, officials said. The province of Ontario introduced a similar law Feb. 1, and officials there said Thursday they laid 28,194 charges in the first seven months since that law took effect. On a per-capita basis, that means B.C. is laying more than twice as many charges as Ontario.

Postmedia News

SOMEONE in British Columbia is fined, on average, once every 15 minutes for driving while talking on the phone, while texting or while using some other kind of handheld electronic device, numbers released recently by Solicitor-General Mike de Jong reveal. De Jong said police across B.C. handed out 19,460 tickets in the first six months following the Feb. 1 introduction of the new law aimed at curbing distracted drivers. “I was surprised,” de Jong said, when discussing the high number of infractions.

It is too early to know what effect the law will have on people’s driving habits, said de Jong, adding he continues to see people using their phones while driving. “Are we altering behaviour? Is it going to take the same length of time that it took to make the point with seatbelts?” he asked. “Time will tell, I guess.” De Jong also released information on the number of people who have been penalized under B.C.’s new tougher impaired driving law. Those data show that close to 40 per cent of people who received roadside suspensions under the new rules had a bloodalcohol level below .08. De Jong said 1,288 people have faced immediate roadside suspensions from Sept. 20 — when the new impaired-driving laws came into effect — to Oct. 10. Of those, 515 were suspended for having a blood-alcohol level between .05 and .08, and 773 faced suspensions for being above .08. An additional 146 other sanctions were handed out for impaired driving during the time period, meaning the total number of infractions between Sept. 20 and Oct. 10 was more than 1,400. De Jong said he believes the numbers show police are using the new law effectively, and that they “confirm there are as many people out there operating motor vehicles impaired by alcohol as we feared there was.” He said the majority of people who faced immediate roadside penalties were those blowing above .08, which he said addresses the suggestion that the new rules are “about grabbing the low end of the spectrum.” But, he added, it will take time before the true effect of the new law becomes clear. “I think it’s too early to draw any absolute conclusions,” he said. “I also think it’s too early to say whether or not we are actually having the desired effect, because the ultimate effect is are we having fewer accidents and killing fewer people.” Kim Haakstad, executive director of B.C.’s Alliance of Beverage Licensees, said Thursday she remains concerned the new drinking and driving law could be targeting the wrong people. “One of the concerns the hospitality industry has is around whether or not we’re looking at the right people, or if it’s just deterring law-abiding citizens from having a glass of wine with their dinner,” Haakstad said. “We’d really like the government to take another look at the legislation and see if it is targeting the dangerous people on our roads.” The Vancouver Sun B.C.A.A. • ARA • ICBC APPROVED SINCE 1959

Ram’s diesel engines efficient, reliable and huge

From page 53

appointments of an S-Class Mercedes, but it’s got a style and class all its own. But perhaps your one of those people who hasn’t got a vendetta against polar bears, and thus you aren’t interested in melting their habitat. Good news: GM has a car for you, and it’s a game-changer. It’s called the Volt, and the General’s PR department has been talking about it for so long that we’d all become a little bored. Turns out they were right to boast. In real-world conditions, as tested by an independent third party (Motor Trend magazine), the Volt managed to achieve a fuel economy rating of 1.85 litres/100 kilometres. How did it manage this staggering figure? Well, the Volt — and remember this is a regular, mid-sized four-door sedan with a roomy trunk — is a hybrid of a different colour. Rather than having a gasoline engine power the wheels directly — although it will do so at Coquihalla speeds — the Volt runs on plug-in rechargeable battery electric

power exclusively, and can also use its tiny-displacement engine to recharge the battery for extended-range trips. Chrysler: Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Ram Chrysler was always in the worst shape of any of the big three. In fact, pundits downgraded the term to “big 2.5” based on the company’s failing fortunes. Not to worry, Fiat’s takeover bid promises to bring fresh models to the table, particularly smaller cars. However, Chrysler still does two things very well: tough and tougher. As the old adage goes, “if you can’t Dodge it, Ram it,” which might cause you to believe that the Ram is the dumbest of the big pickups out there. Not so, for the Ram Heavy Duty is actually one of the cleanest diesels available. It’s also incredibly efficient and powerful, although new engine options from Ford and Chevy stand ready to try to wrest the crown away. Still, if you’re in the market to haul, the Dodge provides comfort, reliability, quietness and one hell of a big engine. Flip open your map book randomly, close your eyes and put

your finger down without looking. Unless your digit is resting in the mid-Atlantic, odds are you can drive wherever you picked in a Jeep. Not just any Jeep either — both the Compass and the Patriot are dilutions of the true, extra-strength, go-anywhere offroader that is the Jeep Wrangler. It might not be especially quiet or efficient, but it climbs like a mountain goat and is essentially unstickable. In the past, the big 2.5 had become bloated and unwieldy, preferring to save money on R&D and cut corners. As a result, they fell further and further behind, culminating in well-publicised bailouts. Now they’re back, leaner and meaner, and with refreshed product lines that compete for your dollar with big muscle, hightech, or out-and-out toughness. Don’t leave ‘em off the shopping list. Speaking for myself, I want a Mustang 5.0 so badly, I’m considering changing my name to Vanilla Ice.
