North Van man wins $1M lottery

27-year-old to give bulk to mother Kerry Blackadar

THEY say money can’t buy you happiness, but the beaming smile and energetic voice of the lucky North Vancouver resident who won $1 million in last Friday’s Lotto Max draw seems to indicate otherwise. “This is fantastic. I started screaming after checking the ticket,” 27year-old Sammy Amiralaei told the B.C. Lottery Corporation Monday, when he arrived at their Richmond office to accept his oversized cheque. “I’m not a gambler, and I normally don’t buy lottery tickets, but this time I honestly had a feeling,” said Amiralaei, who works as a service advisor at a Honda dealership North Vancouver. Now, friends and colleagues who doubted his intuition are eating their words. “I have never seen so many zeroes before,” Amiralaei said in an interview with the North Shore News Tuesday. “I didn’t think it was See Winner page 5

Grow-op gardener gets 12 months in jail Jane Seyd

THE Royal Hudson steam locomotive stops for a drink in North Vancouver June 10. The District of North Vancouver’s fire department gave the historic train a few thousand gallons of water during its trip from New Westminster to Squamish. The 70-year-old locomotive has survived several retirements and is the last operating example of the Royal Hudson class.

Justice Randall Wong handed the sentence to James Gregory Billyard, 39, for his role in tending the sophisticated grow-op. West Vancouver police busted the operation in July 2007, seizing 748 pot plants from the home at 265 Bayview Road. Crown counsel Sharon Steele said police experts estimated the street value of one harvest at $336,000 to $400,000. With additional harvests, “potentially the yield could be substantially greater,” she said. She described it as “a crime of greed.”

Shipyards vie for huge navy contract North Van companies in running for $35B, 30-year federal project Jane Seyd

LOCAL shipbuilders say they’re keen to get a piece of the action after the federal government recently announced plans for a $35-billion, 30-year program to build new navy ships. “We’ve very, very happy the federal government has recognized that it’s time to rebuild their vessels,” said Jonathan Whitworth, chief executive officer of Washington Marine Group, which owns both Vancouver Shipyards and Vancouver Drydock in North Vancouver. Under the national shipbuilding strategy announced by Defence Minister Peter MacKay, Ottawa will pick two Canadian shipyards to build 28 large navy ships — one to construct combat vessels, including Arctic patrol ships, and the other to build large icebreakers and support ships. About 100 smaller vessels will also be put out to tender as part of the naval strategy. Shipbuilders on the West Coast, of which Washington Marine Group is the largest, are keenly interested in becoming one of the two major shipbuilding centres. Washington owns Victoria Shipyards in Esquimalt as well as the two North Vancouver shipyards. It will definitely be among a handful of shipyards across the country vying to build either the combat or support ships, said Whitworth. If the company won either contract, it would mean steady work for up to 1,000 shipyard workers for many years, said Whitworth. “Not all of those workers will be Washington Marine Group employees,” he added. “This amount of work is going to require more than one company.” Several local shipbuilding companies and the shipbuilders union recently joined forces to form the Pacific Shipbuilders Association in an effort to present a united front to lobby government on the navy contracts. “It’s potentially good news,” said George MacPherson, president of the Shipyard General Workers Federation. “We’ve got an awful lot of work to do to show them we can actually do this work. We’ve got some stiff competition.” Washington Marine Group will likely find itself up against competition from the Irvine shipyard in Halifax, as well as shipbuilders in Newfoundland, Ontario and Quebec. Having only two shipyards dedicated to building federal government vessels makes sense in many ways, said both MacPherson and Whitworth. A long-term contract means companies would be able to invest in the infrastructure needed to complete the projects and train young workers, knowing there would be years of stable work in the future. There is a flipside, however. “If you lose, you lose big-time,” said McPherson.

JONATHAN Whitworth, CEO of Washington Marine Group and John Shaw, the company’s vice president, meet at Vancouver Shipyards. WMG is vying for a portion of a huge contract to replace Canadian naval ships. Whitworth described the naval contracts as “make it or break it” for the West Coast shipyards. The industry tends to be boom-and-bust, and shipyards are currently struggling with a downturn. “We’re in an economic trough,” said Whitworth, whose company was forced to lay off significant numbers of its workers last year. Allied Shipbuilders in North Vancouver is one of the exceptions to the pattern, having just won contracts on two federal vessel refit projects. Until recently, 150 people were busy working on the $10-million mid-life extension of the 190-foot Coast Guard vessel Barlett. Another federal refit project of the 180-foot search and rescue vessel Tanu will begin next month. But “the rest of the yards are not doing that well,” said

Gull stymies waterfront project WV demolition suspended to preserve nest Kerry Blackadar

THE sight and sound of seagulls, or glaucous gulls, is nothing new to West Vancouver’s waterfront.

But now, one particular bird is gaining notoriety after nesting on the roof of a house slated for demolition in the 1400-block of Argyle Avenue — a move that has forced the municipality to put plans for the site’s redevelopment on hold. “These birds are protected,” said Brent Leigh, West Vancouver’s deputy chief administrative officer. The district must now either wait for the eventual hatch, or obtain a permit to remove the gull and its nest before knocking down the

THE district has been forced to hold off on its Argyle Avenue its plans until its avian squatter clears out. home. Given the difficulty involved in relocating the bird, it seems likely crews will leave it there until its young have left the nest, which could delay the project for another three to four weeks.

“The other option would be to remove the gull and have the eggs gestated by a chicken,” said Leigh. “I think we’ll just wait.” For Leigh, finding out that seagulls are a protected species on the West Coast

came as a bit of a surprise. “Some people call them rats with wings — not me, but some people,” he chuckled. The home is one of many in the area that have been acquired by the municipality since the late 1980s. Most of the buildings have already been removed as part of a larger plan to expand Ambleside’s waterfront parkland, and those remaining, the gull’s home included, are slated for demolition. Only five beachfront homes remain outside district control along the shoreline between 13th and 18th Streets. Unlike others in the area, the removal of the house in question will not bring about a notable change to the aesthetics of the surrounding area, said Leigh, so there’s no rush to bring it down. Delaying the demolition is not a financial concern for the municipality, he said. Until nature has run its course, it looks as though the gull will remain, together with the aging home.

McPherson. “The employment levels aren’t anywhere near where they should be.” It’s expected to be anywhere from nine months to two years before the government chooses which shipyards will get the large multi-year contracts. “(It’s) still three to four years away before you start cutting steel,” said McPherson. Local shipyard owners were among the members of the Shipbuilding Association of Canada who met in Montreal this week following MacKay’s announcement. Malcolm McLaren, president of Allied, said the mood was generally upbeat. “The government wants to build ships,” he said. “Let’s go get them.”

Victim wins $1.4M in drunk driving case

Jane Seyd

A former West Vancouver resident and Capilano College student has won a $1.4-million settlement after she was seriously injured by a drunk driver.

Laura Rose Shapiro, 29, was handed the award by Justice Christopher Grauer following a trial in B.C. Supreme Court. Shapiro — the daughter of prominent lawyer Bryan Shapiro — grew up in West Vancouver and was described as a happy, energetic and talented young woman and an accomplished swimmer, dancer and gymnast prior to the crash. On March 2, 2005 Shapiro was making a left turn from Dundas Street on to Nanaimo Street in East Vancouver when she was hit by a drunk driver who ran a red light. Randy Wayne Dailey, the driver of the other vehicle, was later convicted criminally of failing to stop at the scene of an accident. As a result of the collision, Shapiro suffered soft-tissue injuries that later developed into chronic pain and fibromyalgia. She also suffered from anxiety and depression, migraine headaches and back pain. Shapiro sued Dailey, ICBC and the company that owned the car that hit her for damages. During the trial, family members described a dramatic change from Shapiro’s previously outgoing personality since the accident, saying she struggles with pain and needs to rest frequently.

Billyard’s defence lawyer Natalie Dunbar said while her client was caretaking the operation, he didn’t own the house and wasn’t in charge of the grow-op. Billyard took on the gardening duties to repay a debt accumulated from a longstanding gambling addiction, she said. Dunbar asked for a conditional sentence, saying Billyard has a construction job awaiting him. But Wong said he had to take into account the size of the grow-op as well as Billyard’s history,whichincludesaprevious drug conviction in 2002.

going to be this big.” But, unlike some lottery winners, Amiralaei isn’t planning on buying a red convertible or his dream home; in fact, he’s going to give most of his winnings to his mother, the first person he called after finding out. “She’s the love of my life,” said Amiralaei, whose father passed away when he was young. “My mother has worked so hard as a single parent, and so I dedicate every penny to her.” He also plans to give a small amount of his earnings to the man who sold him the ticket at the gas station across from his house. Amiralaei is already back at work and claims that things will continue “as usual” — at least for now. But he also recognizes that life can’t go unchanged with the addition of a million bucks in the bank. “The win definitely brings more comfort,” says Amiralaei. “I will probably smile more.” That said, he recognizes that his new wealth will ultimately not buy him longterm happiness, but sharing it can, at least, bring him, and others, temporary joy. Once the shock has worn off, Amiralaei says he plans to find a way to give back to his community and squeeze in a little vacation time too. This Friday’s Lotto Max jackpot, which no one won last week, is now estimated at $95 million. It will include a chance at another 45 individual $1million prizes.

Fuel for thought F

or weeks now, images of the Gulf of Mexico’s oil-slicked herons have inundated our daily news. The environmental nightmare unfolding south of the border has horrified Canadians, but it has not been enough, it seems, to move us to action in our own backyard Two weeks ago, in the face of one of worst ecological disasters in decades, it came to light that the Harper government has loosened regulations on offshore drilling on Canada’s East Coast. While previous rules required companies to develop emergency plans — including details of relief well drilling — the new guidelines, which came into effect in December, remove specific requirements and replace them with broad environmental protection “goals.” Yet, it is very likely a relief well

that will finally stem the flow of crude in the gulf. When news of the change hit the headlines, Canadians took little notice; it was little more than a minor distraction from the real show to our south. But in reality, short of plugging the well ourselves or reorganizing the chaotic American response to the spill, there is little we can do to help. It is within our power, however, is to prevent the same horror from erupting in our own waters. To do so, Canadians must pressure their leaders to tighten regulations here, to force oil companies to prove they have foolproof safeguards against a similar leak. It may seem counterintuitive, but the most valuable thing we can do in response to the Deep Horizon disaster is to turn away from it.


Bike lane a path to trouble

Dear Editor: The wheels are in motion to change the north side of Keith Road between Grand Boulevard and St. Andrews Avenue. It is obvious that by the time public consultation began, City of North Vancouver planning staff had decided what was best. Two options were given. Doing nothing was not one of them. Formally linking St. Andrews and Grand Boulevard for cyclists along another route was not one of them. The choice presented was between narrowing the already busy road to accommodate a wider multi-use sidewalk,

and cramming a wider multi-use sidewalk into the existing space. My family and I have been riding bikes in the area for years. We have never had any difficulty travelling between Grand Boulevard and St. Andrews. There are many possible safe and pleasant routes now. If we don’t need it (and we don’t), and we don’t have the money (and judging from my 2010 tax statement, we don’t), why are we doing it? For the cachet of another link in the green necklace? So the city can spend even more of our tax dollars?

Moreover, despite all the empty rhetoric to the contrary in the public presentation, changes to on-street parking associated with this needless expenditure will mean the end of the Lums’ corner store, although the Lums have been respected, appreciated and active participants in and contributors to the community for many, many years. And another one gone. Another one bites the dust. I hope that it will be the city’s plan, not our neighborhood store that bites the dust. Colin A. Campbell

WV spectators should respect their youngers

Dear Editor: West Vancouver’s new youth string ensemble capped its inaugural season with a pair of performances at the West Vancouver Seniors’ Activity Centre as part of Community Day on June 5. Sadly, the first performance of the day could not be fully enjoyed by members of the audience, including the writer, because of the boorish behaviour of a few seniors who insisted on engaging in loud conversation and laughter after choosing to sit right near


the performers. There were times when violin solos could not even be heard over the bleating. On a positive note, the young musicians, in their teens and even pre-teens, ignored the rudeness and continued to make their lovely music. It’s not hard to imagine what the response would have been had the tables been turned and some young people had disrupted a performance by their elders. So, before one of West Vancouver’s

infamous “Old Farts” climbs aboard his or her soapbox to decry the current lost generation of youth, consider this: These fine and talented members of our North Shore community proved the kids are all right, although some grandparents and great grandparents may need a little work. At least the day ended well, as a respectful audience of all ages took in the band’s second performance later in the afternoon. John Hadley West Vancouver

Floundering Liberals target grade school vote

Dear Editor: Things are obviously out of control with the Liberal Party of Canada. My seven-year-old son, Michael, was wondering why the Libs would send him a letter asking to help defend the gun registry and make a donation (North Shore MPs Would End Gun Registry, June 11, North Shore News). I told him that this party seems to be extending its reach to an up-and-coming voter like himself — so much so that in 10 years, when the Liberals are actually a contender, he might vote for them. He did not seem that interested in my explanation and moved quickly back to studying his Grade 2 spelling words. John O’Flynn North Vancouver

Summit the peak of excess

Dear Editor: Here we go again. Another billion-dollar security expense, this time for the G-8 and G-20 summit in Ontario. You would think the RCMP and Canadian Forces were hiring people off the street to secure the two locations. In fact, they are bringing thousands of personnel from across the country to Toronto and Huntsville. Since their salaries are already being paid no matter where they are stationed, the only added expense is travel and accommodation. As with Olympic security, these expenses would make a fair percentage of the $1-billion price tag. Doug Wilson North Vancouver

Politics trump pupils in school board spat

“Cross-cultural communication is difficult, particularly when both parties believe they are speaking the same language.” Dr. David B. Shurtleff, Developmental Paediatric Neurologist, Seattle Children’s Hospital.

IF there are valid points to be made on any side of the Vancouver School Board-Ministry of EducationComptroller General debate, they were hard to decipher during last week’s cross-cultural discussions of the subject.

The first culture was represented by fatigued members of the Vancouver School Board who have struggled for 18 months to deliver on their election promises despite insufficient funding. The second is that of Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid who, nurtured in the arrogant environment of the Campbell administration, refuses to acknowledge the significant role her government has played in creating the problems. And the third culture belongs to a broadcast media that, early last week, appeared happy enough to run vanguard for the government message — a message that focused as much on the

Just Asking

Elizabeth James political sympathies of VSB chairwoman Patti Bacchus as it did on the issues. Lost in the volcanic eruption are the voices of parents and their student offspring. It began on CKNW radio Monday morning, during a less-than-warm Bill Good interview with Bacchus. In the following hour, the discussion continued as Good talked over journalist Frances Bula when she tried to confirm some of Bacchus’ information. He then gave the same treatment to callers who disagreed with him. At that point, it was a relief to turn off the car radio at my destination. Next up, for me at least, was the Tuesday drivehome shout-commentary of CKNW’s Gord MacDonald who, substituting for Jon McComb on The World Today, sounded like a pot calling the Bacchus kettle black for her refusal to fall

silent prey to the minister’s accusations of incompetence. The show went downhill from there when MacDonald proceeded to rant through the rest of the segment, drowning out callers’ comments to such an extent that one man suggested he should quit CKNW and run for the Liberals. If the show’s intent was to inform or entertain, it bombed on both counts. On Thursday, the news carried MacDiarmid’s illdisguised threat that, if the VSB did not submit a draft balanced budget by June 18, consequences unspecified would follow. Those unfortunate enough to have heard, watched or read the discussions no doubt expect the entire board to be fired. So much for the school board’s autonomy in representing local constituents. It was not until Friday

when, after the minister had been given free rein to outline her position yet again, another member of the VSB, Mike Lombardi, called Bill Good to confirm what Bacchus had tried to say: The minister wants a draft balanced budget? We posted one online on April 27. “In fact, if you look at the budget we presented . . . it literally addresses all the comptroller general’s recommendations,” he said. And with respect to dragging their feet on school closures: “We are moving forward on that and will be speaking to the school superintendent on June 23rd about school closures for the following year,” said Lombardi. “And you raised an interesting point about timelines. . . . There have been boards that have not provided an adequate timeline that are being sued by parents, . . . so we have

administrative issues. And the VSB is merely a poster child for all school districts in the province — including those of North and West Vancouver. Major disruptions occur when a school is pulled out of a community; yet, faced with declining enrolment and disappearing budgets, the trustees of North Vancouver School District 44 decided they had no other alternative but to close schools. And unless saner minds prevail across the spectrum, at least one of those closures has resulted in legal action.

Other districts are also considering school closures, or have resorted to service cutbacks and staff layoffs. By making those otherwise-laudable choices instead of joining the VSB in its challenge of provincial underfunding, those boards are enabling the ministry to dodge its fiscal and legislated responsibilities, so the budgetary noose may be pulled even tighter. Some of the most serious accusations outlined in the comptroller general’s report and/or described by the minister were that the VSB is incompetent, has ignored students’ best interests and failed to plan for the long-term. Knowing, as I do, the angst that sincere North Vancouver school administors have faced in cooperation with parent advisory councils, I view those accusations as insults that stop barely short of defamation. No matter her political bent, why should Ms. Bacchus sit still for that? How can any board engage in long-term planning when they cannot even count on receiving the dollars promised by the ministry for the current fiscal period? Or when lottery grants are cancelled without warning? How can anyone be expected to provide a stable education program when the province refuses to fully fund contracts the province itself negotiated? And further, why should the minister not be hoist on her own petard when it is her ministry’s decision not to fund all of the necessary resources? In a column last August, I noted that in 1997 the B.C. Supreme Court decided the

School Act requires the province to provide, free of charge, all resource materials necessary for a K-12 student to graduate from the official curriculum. The Supreme Court upheld that decision in October 2006. School boards are tasked with carrying out the terms of the legislation. Almost all of the dollars available to them are dollars the province collects from us for that purpose. So, if the ministry itself is in compliance with the law, how is it that B.C. school boards still must charge fees to make up the provincial shortfall? As I see it, a ministry-enforced cutback in services and spending at the school board level not only insulates the province from its legislated responsibility, it may well force boards into contravention of the act. On May 31, North Vancouver lawyer, Jim Poyner, began a threee-day presentation of his motion for certification of a class action on behalf of British Columbians who have “paid fees to . . . the Board of Education of School District No. 39 (Vancouver) for instruction in summer school courses leading to graduation.” Poyner plans to commence similar suits against other B.C. school districts that also charged summer school fees, including those of North and West Vancouver. That is the process which must be followed — no matter that provincial underfunding is the root cause of the problem. This begs the question: If, as the comptroller-general asserts, the spending of education dollars on VSB education-related committee work is inappropriate, how does she feel about wasting the education budget on legal fees?

City will back bar’s bid for later last call Mosquito Creek Bar and Grill’s bid to extend its liquor service hours from 1:30 a.m. to 2 a.m.

Benjamin Alldritt

THE City of North Vancouver will support QUALITY WORKMANSHIP





Kelly Nielson, owner of the Westview Drive eatery, had previously been turned away by city council when he asked to stay open until 3 a.m. Council’s previous decision was influenced by an opinion solicited from the North Vancouver RCMP, who said that the later serving hours would promote “bar-hopping” and complicate the detachment’s scheduling of patrols. In the early hours of the morning, wrote Supt. Tonia Enger, the Mounties shift their emphasis from impaired drivers towards patrols for property and auto crime. Enger also wrote that she had no particular complaints with

the Mosquito Creek bar. At two previous appearances before council, Nielson stressed that his establishment had a clean licence record. He also noted that it was well clear of residential areas, and had stayed open until 3 a.m. during the Olympics without incident. “Last time we discussed this, I was wary of 3 a.m.,” Coun. Bob Fearnley said. “I have no problem with 2 a.m. I think that’s a supportable closing hour.” City council voted 6-2 in favour of the application, with Couns. Guy Heywood and Pam Bookham opposed. Liquor licensing is a provincial responsibility, but Victoria requires licence holders to seek approval from their local government before asking the province for changes.

Reformed group to push for safer routes across North Shore


Niamh Scallan


THE push for safer cycling routes on the North Shore gained new strength last week after a Vancouver-based cycling advocacy group renewed its North Shore chapter.

The Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition announced the restoration of its North Shore committee June 7. The committee hopes to work with municipal councils in North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Bowen Island, and Lions Bay to achieve its goal. “There are some designated bicycle routes that were probably designed by someone looking at a map who doesn’t actually ride a bicycle,” said North Shore committee chairman Jay MacDonald. “They’re really not well designed.” The City of North Vancouver emphasized the importance of cycling, walking and public transit use in its 2008 transportation plan, which sketched out a bicycle network and greenways for recreational and commuter cyclists. The city has worked on bike lanes and other bicycle services since the plan was adopted. “I’ve seen a strong use of the facilities we’re providing,” said Douglas Pope, North Vancouver’s deputy city engineer, “and we’re getting strong directions from our council to continue to improve cycling in our city.” But both the city and other North Shore municipalities continue to lag behind the City of Vancouver with its ongoing initiatives for commuter cyclists, said MacDonald. “Right now, there are quite a few riders on the North Shore, but the facilities for what we call a city rider, our facilities are falling behind,” he said. “What we want to do is try and promote the infrastructure to make it that it’s safe and simple for riders to get around the North Shore.” The City and District of North Vancouver devised a Bicycle See Terrain page 12

unanimously approving a development permit for Area 2.

Area 2 is the western portion of the strip of land running between Cypress Bowl Road to the north and Chairlift Road to the south. British Pacific Properties plans to subdivide the 35-acre site into 16 single-family home lots and two 12-unit clusters. These two clusters will be subject to a further development application process. In addition to several trails

through the area, almost twothirds of the subdivision’s area will be retained as publicly owned green space. Coun. Michael Evison asked staff if the new parkland, while welcome, would be a burden on district parks staff. Community planning manager Geri Boyle told council that the district’s costs had been considered against new tax revenues during review of the entire Rodgers Creek project. What’s more, much of the public greenspace would be left largely in its natural state,

she said. “This is low-maintenance park in . . . that it doesn’t require people. In fact, the less done in these areas the better, because it is so environmentally sensitive,” she said. No members of the public attended the council meeting to support or oppose the permit application. Overall, the Rodgers Creek development will create six new neighbourhoods containing 736 new dwellings with 1.875 million square feet of floor area.

SINCE 1959

Master Plan in 1996 that called for a network of bicycle routes to be created that would connect North Vancouver with West Vancouver and with the communities south of the Burrard Inlet. It also recognized the need for other facilities such as bike parking, showers and lockers for cyclists. The Joint Bicycle Advisory Committee, comprised of five members from the District of North Vancouver and five from the city, was formed the same year to help implement that master plan. Despite the group’s efforts and the various plans hatched over the last 15 years, the North Shore remains a challenging place to ride for both recreational and commuter purposes, said Amy Lewis, the committee’s co-chair. “As of right now, I know that there are not enough bike lanes, and one of my goals is to change that,” Lewis said. “The North Shore is a just a challenging area for cycling because of the terrain.” City engineers charged with designing accessible cycling routes on the North Shore face an uphill battle, she said.

North Van Suzuki 1695 Marine Drive, North Vancouver


Many streets running north to south include dauntingly steep hills that make cycling difficult for many residents, Lewis explained. Creeks running throughout the region also serve as roadblocks to potential routes running east to west. But for MacDonald, the fight for a bicycle network that mirrors Vancouver’s superior system is not a lost one. And the North Shore committee can contribute to municipalities’ bicycle plans through advocacy and public input, he said. “We don’t want to be confrontational,” he said. “We are planning to work very close with JBAC. We want to work through them to promote better health, a better environment, a better community.” Lewis similarly noted the need for cooperation and communication in order to improve local cycling infrastructure. “It seems like there hasn’t been a real continuity of information in the past, which is unfortunate, because we have a great deal of common interests,” she said. “It’s my hope that we can work and collaborate with the North Shore VACC.”

There are many sentiments cursed, I mean, expressed, about snails and slugs by gardeners and writers across the world, but I like that one by Arthur E. Ellis. Let’s face it, coastal British Columbia is an idyllic place to live if you’re a slug or snail; lots of rain, plenty to eat and a long growing season in which to enjoy the fruits of other peoples’ labour. Normally I would go into detail about scientific classification of the pest in discussion, but who really cares, they are all just slugs and snails, and if you’re a gardener, you are already well acquainted with them. I think it is important to put into perspective the role that slugs and snails play in the environment of your garden. They are decomposers to use an ecologist’s term, they eat and consume everything that is important to us gardeners and have no respect for other peoples’ hard work. They are actually quite rude, I mean who else would just slime on into your garden and start eating your fruits and vegetables without permission. Seriously though, they are consumers and decomposers of dead, damaged and decaying plant

Steve Dotto THIS past week we saw one of several annual Apple love-ins as the Worldwide Developer Conference took place in San Francisco. As usual, Steve Jobs kicked it off with the aforementioned gratuitous display of affection as the faithful waited to see what new wonders would pour forth from the fount of Apple. Meh! Not much to get excited about, that alone was newsworthy. Apple did roll out V4 of the iPhone, but it was more yawn than awe inspiring. To be fair, it is increasingly difficult to wow anyone in the tech space these days. After all, the iPhone/BlackBerry/ Android world is pretty darn impressive as it sits.

A Natural Face Lift Acupuncture face lift is a natural alternative for individuals seeking to remove facial wrinkles. HOW IT WORKS The face is stimulated to increase natural collagen production, tighten tone and regain firmness and natural skin colour. This is done using acupuncture, tui na (massage), microcurrent stimulation and herbs. Floramin anti-wrinkle creams and toners, a natural skincare line made in Canada, are used exclusively for the best results. Dr. Tahmineh Nikookar has performed this ancient Chinese treatment for over 10 years and was among the first to re-introduce it to clients in British Columbia. Said by one of her clients on the treatment, “I highly recommend acupuncuture facial rejuvenation, the results are amazing. The sessions are relaxing and there is no downtime. Acupuncture rejuvenation is more than skin deep. It is as good for the soul as it is for the skin.”

NORTH Vancouver couple Alleyne and Barbara Cook have donated more than 20 rhododendron plants from their private garden to Larson Park.

Couple donates rare flowers NORTH Vancouver residents who visit Larson Park will now be able to enjoy beautiful and rare rhododendron plants, donated to the city by a local couple.

More than 20 of the floral plants, valued at approximately $3,500, have brightened up the southwest corner of the park located at Larson Road and 23rd Street. Donor Alleyne Cook is a former head gardener for the city — his rhododendron collections can be found at Stanley Park, Burnaby Lake, VanDusen Botanical Gardens and Queen Elizabeth Park. The city has undertaken a number of initiatives to help preserve its greenery, including the Loutet Park Urban Agriculture Project, the Mahon Park Rehabilitation Project and the Green Necklace and Keith Road greenways.

Too many times we find the propane has frustratingly run out right in the middle of a dinner party. Weber has designed a digital indicator on the front panel of its S420 Summit barbecue that allows the user to see how much propane is remaining in the tank. The propane tank is nicely concealed inside a lower cabinet and connected to a weigh scale. As the weight recedes, the indicator notifies the user when to replace. A great idea, if you ask me. It’s available at Johnstone’s for $1,800. Access drawers, storage drawers and warming drawers are all popular options for today’s barbecues as well. It really is all about creating an outdoor kitchen and being able to cook, keep warm and serve your food outside. Now if we could only get the weather to co-operate, we’re in business. Happy Father’s Day.

BlackBerry is a tool From page 16 the video chat, that Apple undoubtedly hoped would be the lead feature that had everyone talking, but I am not so sure anyone really cares that much about it. The strength of smartphones is the Internet connectivity, the applications, the power and possibility. Voice is the least compelling feature of any phone and adding video to it is sort of like adding cheese sauce to broccoli — it’s still broccoli! One lasting impression the whole keynote left me with is how well Research in Motion is doing and how little credit they are getting. The BlackBerry is still far and away the leading smartphone, with Apple and the Android phones combined having less market share, yet no one, at least in the high tech press, seems to talk about it. I was speaking at a

conference in Winnipeg last week and an American speaker who preceded me asked who had iPhones. A few hands went up. Who had Android? Less hands went up. She followed on by explaining to her lessthan-sophisticated northern cousins what a smartphone was! I was somewhat shocked, as pretty much every attendee had a BlackBerry before them on the table or in their pocket or purse. For some reason this speaker didn’t even consider the BlackBerry as a smartphone! It goes to show how far under the radar RIM continues to fly and makes their market dominance that much more impressive. The success of the BlackBerry also paints a clear picture of what we really want our smartphones to do. And no, it is not video chat. E-mail, texting, some targeted web browsing (Googling), phone, time and

green guide

contact management and even GPS functions dominate our use of the BlackBerry. Most of the users of the BlackBerry don’t miss or even think about what they are missing in comparison with the iPhone. Even though the iPhones and Androids will ultimately do more than the BlackBerry, they don’t do these basic functions as well, and it is these functions we want, and we make our purchasing decisions based on them. When people ask me why I still use a BlackBerry, when I am obviously impressed with the other phones on the market, I answer the same way over and over: the BlackBerry is a tool, and it works perfectly for me. It keeps me connected, on time and does so efficiently and reliably. Why would I change? I won’t, not in the foreseeable future, and not even way cool video conferencing will change my mind.

matter and as they eat, they return such matter back into the life cycling systems of the soil which enhances the soil’s fertility. Slugs and snails are actually important contributors in a healthy garden. Local myth says that our coastal slugs can grow to legendary proportions, reaching up to one foot in length, but has anyone ever really seen a slug that long? And if you did, surely such a rare and graceful organism should be captured and sent to a research laboratory for study and possible genetic manipulation so it could be grown to reach the size of a small harbour seal and then trained to eat the tonnes of garbage we produce. During the days of our ignorance, controlling slugs involved putting out poisonous bait, usually metaldehyde, which is deadly to humans and our children, all animals, beneficial insects and pets. This approach rarely controlled slugs or snails for very long, so re-application, or should I say addiction, was commonplace. Today, however, if you are even the least bit enlightened, you would use several integrated control methods to prevent slugs and snails from damaging the garden. Integrating your

To control these slimy pests in the garden use all of the following controls at once. Apply coarse and prickly mulch like bark mulch or wood chips, use non-toxic slug baits, place

New baits use iron phosphate From page 19 waste a fine Canadian beer on slugs. New slug baits made from iron phosphate have been found to decrease slug populations without harming birds, small pets or humans. Scientists are still not sure exactly how these elements affect slugs but iron phosphate is known to affect soil chemistry and soil pH, so be careful how much you use. Some people suggest cultivating the soil to destroy new eggs or removing all rocks and other hiding places in the garden; neither of these ideas are practical or effective over the long term, especially since I paid thousands of dollars to have all of those fancy rocks brought into my garden. There are always those people who are way ahead of the curve. A case in point: snail farming of the edible garden snail is currently a booming cottage industry in England. And some chefs, like Iso Rabins, have this advice: “You’ve probably had escargots. Delicious, aromatic, filled with garlic, perhaps complemented by a nice glass of Pinot Gris. What many people don’t know is that garden snails and escargots are nearly the same thing (different species, samfe genus), and they taste similar. If you really want to eat local, take that small mental leap and turn garden pests into haute cuisine.” Now there’s a tasty idea — good for the garden and the environment. So get your garlic and butter ready, meander out into the garden and pick a few snails for dinner.

PLANNING ahead for a child’s airplane trip can make for a smoother experience. qualify for the UM service. There is a $100 fee each way and it is mandatory until he is 12 at which point it is optional. Under the UM program an Air Canada agent will take your child under her care ensuring that he gets on the right flight, will look after his passport, airline ticket and emergency phone numbers and make sure he is delivered to the correct person at his destination. It is important to prepare a child for a flight. Airports can be big and confusing places and even with an agent looking after him, your child may be overwhelmed and missing you. The more he knows about what to expect, the calmer he will be. Before the flight explain all the details of the upcoming

flight. If he has flown before, this will be simpler but if this is his first time tell him everything from the location of bathrooms, to the way his seat will work and the reality that he may experience some turbulence. It’s a good idea to have this conversation about a week before the flight so he has time to think it through and then come to you with questions. Have him bring a carry-on bag with some favourite toys and books as well as a snack. In his bag also put the name and phone number of the person meeting him at the airport. He should also have some money in case he needs to purchase something or make a phone call. The agent will also have

his information, but it’s a good idea for him to have a back-up and will help him to feel more confident. At the airport you will check in and be asked to provide identification for the child which could be a birth certificate, health card, passport or other government-issued ID. For travel outside Canada, a passport is required. You will also be asked to complete what is called See UM page 22




If Mom were to choose WestJet, she or another person who is at least 12 years old would have to travel with him. If Mom chooses to fly with him she will get a 50 per cent reduction on her fare as long as she returns within 24 hours. So she would likely hand him over to Dad and then return on the next flight. Once Bailey is 12, he can travel on his own. Air Canada has a travel plan for children that is called the Unaccompanied Minor (UM) service for children. It is for children who are eight or older. Children under eight must be accompanied. Bailey would

The Air Canada agent who takes your child into her care will hold this in an envelope. Finally, even after Bailey and the agent have disappeared through security to the departure lounge, you must remain in the airport until the flight has departed. It is also important that you be positive and upbeat about the visit. You may be annoyed (to put it mildly) that his dad has moved across the country, making these visits so challenging. But don’t let Bailey know how you feel. Talk about the positive aspects. He will get to spend time with his dad. If you know of some special outings that they will enjoy, mention that. Prepare your child for the trip and be positive and you will make it easier for him to have a great holiday.

Like the seahorse, it’s the hip-pocket frog who carries his babies around! Alan Mark’s subtle green and brown watercolour paintings illustrate the Australian forest floor to perfection. Pale Male: Citizen Hawk of New York City tells the true story of a young red-railed hawk who takes up residence in Central Park in New York. With decreasing farmland and wilderness, he was probably attracted by the numerous plump pigeons and rats of New York City. Not content to hunt and hide, he finds a mate and builds a nest above a window of one of the most exclusive apartment buildings on Fifth Avenue. Despised by residents of the apartment but beloved by the citizens of New York, battles are fought and won to allow Pale Male and his mates to raise generation after generation of red-tailed hawks in the city. Like the emperor penguin, Pale Male is a devoted avian daddy. Here are a few other picturebooks for young children about animal dads — just in time for Father’s Day! ■ Animal Dads by Sneed

■ Cosmic, by Frank Cottrell Boyce, Macmillan, 307 pages, $9.99 Frank Cottrell Boyce struck gold with an earlier novel for kids called Millions which was later made into a pretty fabulous movie. If that novel was ‘gold,’ this novel is platinum. Liam is 12 and has just suffered through a seveninch summer growth spurt! His dad says, “Seven inches is not a spurt. Seven inches is a mutation.” So he’s tall for his age. What really confuses

everyone is the peach fuzz on his lip! He’s forever being mistaken for an adult and this is where the fun (and the fantasy) begins. Liam carries his passport to get on the school bus to prove that he’s a kid. He’s mistaken for the school’s new media teacher. And he acts as the ‘dad’ on the fun rides at the fairgrounds when his friends need to be accompanied by an adult. He’s even offered the keys to a Porsche in the car sales lot! Why not take advantage of the situation, he thinks. After all, “Everyone lies about their age. Adults pretend to be younger. Teenagers pretend to be older. Children wish they were grown-ups.” When a phone magnate notices that Liam has been surfing all the best amusement park websites he receives a phone call asking what he likes about theme parks. “The Crispy New World feeling you get after you’ve been on a thrill ride. I love that,” Liam responds. When asked whether he takes his children on the rides he deepens his voice and pretends to be “the dad.” When he responds that he wants his “children to think of the world as their thrill ride,” he wins a contest to the best, biggest, fastest thrill ride in the world. All he has to do is take a limo (with an alleged 11-year-old daughter!) to the airport and catch a plane to China where they’ll be the first of five families ever to ride the “Rocket.” The problem is, it’s a real rocket

and the five kids and one token dad find themselves in space, cut off from the rest of mankind. Guess which “dad”? It sounds like an impossible plot, but Frank Cottrell Boyce pulls it off. The book is laugh-out-loud funny. As a novel it can be read by students between grades 4 and 7, and would be the perfect read-aloud for dads to read to their kids. Between the cosmic comic moments, the book has a great deal to say about “dadliness.” Other cosmic dads in novels for students in grades 4–7. ■ Danny the Champion of the world by Roald Dahl. ■ Dragonwings by Laurence Yep ■ Inkheart by Cornelia Funke ■ The Janitor’s Boy by Andrew Clements ■ Journey to an 800 Number by E.L.

Ray and Morah Waghorn June 19 marks the 65th wedding anniversary of Ray and Morah “Mac” Waghorn. Ray was born in North Vancouver, Mac in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia but moved to North Vancouver when she was eight. Both have lived in the Capilano neighbourhood all their lives. When Ray returned from war he proposed to Mac on the banks of the Capilano river where they spent so much of their youth. Ray built the house they still live in and they were married in the church across the street. On sunny days they can be found in the late afternoon in their large garden sharing a glass of wine, laughing and enjoying life and memories. Their two sons Kerry and Dean and the rest of the family send them much love.

EMMA’S not your average tutor. With four fuzzy paws and an appetite for kibble, the seven-yearold black Labrador retriever helps North Vancouver elementary students improve their reading skills. Part of the non-profit Paws 4 Reading program, Emma is one of six therapy dogs that travel to North Shore schools every week to help young people concentrate and relax while reading aloud. “We have students that might be reluctant readers in the classroom and the program has had a really positive impact on the children,” Norgate community elementary principal Kathy Kee said. Paws 4 Reading volunteer Mary Brown began the reading program after hearing about a similar program on television. fBrown saw the it as an opportunity for her dog Emma, a St. John Ambulance therapy dog, to contribute to the local community. Brown and Emma completed a program called Reading Education Assistance Dogs and later began Paws 4 Reading, the only program of its kind on the North Shore. f “On the outset, this sounds a little wacky,” Brown said, “but it’s well known that when you are with a dog, it decreases your heart rate and your blood pressure comes down. Really, it puts the kids in a place where they want to read.” Teachers from participating schools choose students that would be suitable for the program. Students in grades 2 and 3 with difficulty concentrating or reading aloud in the classroom are often chosen to spend 20-minute reading sessions with the dogs. These students spend one-on-one time reading with the therapy dog and the volunteer facilitator. Currently working at eight different schools on the North Shore, Brown has seen increased demand for the therapy dogs’ services amongst schools. Volunteers and their dogs travel to both public libraries and schools each week to help children read. “We could be in more schools but we just don’t have enough dogs and people to go around,” Brown said. Therapy dogs require lengthy training to participate in the Paws 4 Training program. The six dogs currently involved with the program are certified as both therapy dogs and Reading Education Assistance dogs. The training programs test dogs for temperament, non-aggressiveness, and sociability to ensure public safety.

The African Children’s Choir, composed of 21 children from Rwanda and Uganda, is scheduled to perform at West Vancouver Baptist Church at the 8:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services. “We are very excited about them coming,” said Judy Thompson, office administrator at West Vancouver Baptist Church. “It’s a great opportunity to bring awareness to the needs of children in Africa and to support the children individually.” This Sunday’s performance marks the African Children’s Choir’s fourth visit to the West Vancouver Baptist Church. The choir of young, vulnerable Ugandan children formed in 1984. Over 700 youth from Uganda, Rwanda, Nigeria, Ghana, southern Sudan and South Africa have been involved with the African Children’s Choir to date. Choir members range in age from seven to 11. In addition to its stop in West Vancouver, the choir travels to several other church communities across North America and Europe to raise awareness of the challenges faced by African youth. Funds raised by performances help provide education and basic necessities to impoverished and vulnerable children in Africa.

Health Report

Improve the quality of your sleep tonight by replacing your old polyester comforter with a healthy new wood duvet!!

FACT 1: Our bodies are made up of nearly 75% water. We can lose an average of 1 litre of moisture through perspiration every night! Wool is the only natural fibre known to mankind that works to absorb perspiration during the night and then release it during the day. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without making the body feel damp. FACT 2: Wool duvets can automatically adjust to each body's ideal temperature level allowing different couples their ideal environment. This allows you drier, warmer and more comfortable night's sleep. They can relieve "night sweats" and benefit people who suffer from rheumatism, arthritis, and injured areas of the body. Polyester fill can not do this. FACT 3: Wool duvets are naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial so they deter dust mites. Your body never comes in contact with the wool because it's encased in a fine, smooth, high-thread count natural cotton cover. Our wool duvets are specially manufactured to create a light airy, warm, insulating batting making it ideal for those warm weather nights. Ask about our wool pillows and mattress toppers too, to create a really luxurious sleep environment!

THE African Children’s Choir will be performing at West Vancouver Baptist Church to raise awareness about the plight of African youths. Rural, a Baptist church located on the outskirts of Rwanda’s capital city, Kigali. Led by Pastor Jonas Bikorimana, Kigali Rural supports marginalized women affected by HIV/AIDS. The West Vancouver Baptist Church focuses on the needs of children by supporting Children of Hope, a program that raises funds for vulnerable children in Rwanda. A number of church members were also involved in three mission trips

to Rwanda in recent years. For Thompson, the African Children’s Choir West Vancouver performance is important to expose the challenges faced by African youth today. It also provides members of the public to experience African culture, she added. “Its fun,” she said. “Very high energy, lots of singing, dancing and big smiles.” Admission to the performance is free.

WHEN Maclean’s magazine travels cross-country to host “exclusive Taste evenings” that each include a swishy cocktail reception and a fivecourse chef’s tasting menu complemented by wine pairings, most $130-per-ticket guests would not expect to find themselves eating at a chain restaurant. And yet, that’s just what happened on Monday evening when Cactus Club Café rolled out the red carpet to welcome the Vancouver edition of Taste of Maclean’s. It’s not so surprising, actually, once you’ve read Maclean’s writer Jacob Richler’s paean to chef Rob Feenie’s butternut squash ravioli in the most recent issue of the magazine. His point, beautifully made, is that although the ravioli is prepared differently for the sheer number produced for consumption in Cactus Club’s 21 restaurant kitchens, the end result is markedly similar to the signature dish Feenie made at his own highend restaurant Lumiere, back when it was his. There’s little doubt that Feenie is still in possession of the talent that hiked him to the top of the city’s — even the country’s — culinary scene. And that he’s still using it, albeit in different ways, in his current gig as “food concept architect” of Cactus Club. So I wasn’t likely to turn

The meal was hosted by Maclean’s very funny columnist and blogger Scott Feschuk. “I would be remiss if I did not apologize for the hideousness of the wait staff,” he began, making an obvious crack about the chain’s propensity for hiring gorgeous servers. “Avert your eyes and we’ll get through this.” The meal began with the aforementioned, luscious ravioli, as requested by Richler. Then Feenie and kitchen brigade cut loose. Cool ingots of Lois Lake steelhead — recently named an Ocean Wise species — were citrus-cured and stacked elegantly on warm local new potato salad and topped by a tangle of microgreens and radish.

plate, a spoonful of coral-hued roe, icy yellow beet sorbet and perfect spheres of dark purple “beet pearls.” I’ve never seen those on a Cactus Club plate before. The juicy 2008 Sandhill Small Lots Viognier was a nice match for the plate, and worked well with the ravioli, to boot. Next, a delicate boudin of free-range chicken and foie gras atop rustic braised lamb cheek orzo, beautifully paired with a silky 2008 Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir from Sonoma. A tender duck and chicken pressé followed, nestled into a brushstroke of celeriac puré and accompanied by another ravioli, this one stuffed with duck confit

and caramelized onion on a ragù of morel mushroom and spring peas, all drizzled in a soy truffle vinaigrette. The lush 2008 Young & Wyse Merlot was the talk of the table — it’s the first vintage from the new Okanagan winery, and it’s delicious. We began to wind down with an Agassiz ash-rind goat cheese on beet salad, served with Sumac Ridge’s Pipe; and then finished the meal with a decadent white chocolate “cloud” with Meyer lemon cream, blackberry and strawberry salad and tarragon anglaise. It was an outstanding meal, proving that not only Feenie was up to the task at hand, but so was the entire team at Cactus Club.

Traditional food is a healthy choice THERE is a true and authentic Canadian cuisine.

It is the cuisine of what we now call the First Nations of this great land. Our Aboriginal peoples have three distinct groups: the Metis, the Inuit (Innu) and the First Nations. There are approximately 600 First Nations groups in Canada and they inhabit all parts of the country. National Aboriginal Day is annually held on June 21 and it is to celebrate the unique culture and heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of the nation’s Aboriginal peoples. One of the best means to get to know a culture and peoples is through the history and understanding of their diet. The traditional diet of Aboriginal people was made up of the animals and plants found on the land and in the sea around them. Historically the consumption of foods was raw or minimally processed. For this simple reason the native population were well nourished considering the total availability of foodstuffs

year around. More recently First Nations, Métis and the Inuit have added processed foods and convenience foods to their diet, and are experiencing the health problems that come from consumption of foods containing refined sugars and additives. The traditional diet was nutritious and high in calories and fat. But their lifestyle was not sedentary and they used up all those calories and fat. The traditional diets of all people was admittedly simpler but much healthier than our processed food

onslaught of today. We can learn a good daily lesson from the traditional First Nations cuisine: eat simply and the minimal amount of commercially processed foods. We will all be the better for it. This week, in celebration of Aboriginal Day, we offer five authentic Aboriginal recipes for your collection. They offer but a minute glance into the traditions and culture of our First Nations peoples.

Blast from the past for the BC Lions as den moves back to Empire Field Construction is almost complete on the temporary stadium at Empire Field that the BC Lions will call home for the 2010-11 season. The home opener in the Lions’ temporary den will be on June 21 against Edmonton. For some fans, it will be a brand new experience. For others, it will provide a taste of the past. “We have a tremendous opportunity in 2010 to provide our fans with a season to remember as we return to the birthplace of Lions football for the first time in 27 years,” said George Chayka, the Lions’ vice-president of business.

Empire Field, along with driving directions and parking information. Completely enclosed on all four sides with an approximate seating capacity of 27,500, the new Lions’ den at Empire Field will be a cosy fit for fans. Individual seats totaling 20,100 will run along the side lines and another 7,400 bench-style seats will occupy the end zones. Sideline seats between the goal lines will be covered and a limited number of private boxes will also be constructed along with media facilities, concessions, stadium level lighting, scoreboards, a video board and washrooms.

Quick Facts:

The one-year move to Empire Field became necessary following the announcement late last year that construction on a new retractable roof for BC Place would not be completed until July 2011. The BC Lions will host the 99th Grey Cup at BC Place in November 2011.

The BC Lions are heading back to their old turf this season, when they return to Empire Field. photo courtesy BC Lions

TransLink has boosted service linking to Empire Field quite significantly since the Lions last played there. Service on Hastings Street and links from the North Shore and from the Millennium SkyTrain Line will give fans great connections to the games, and TransLink will offer “special events” boosts in service for game days.

ROWAN Wick readies for a swing while playing with Canada’s Junior National Team. Wick, a Carson Graham student, was picked in the 19th round of the MLB draft by the Milwaukee Brewers.

NORTH Vancouver’s Rowan Wick was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 19th round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player draft held last week.

Wick, a Grade 12 student at Carson Graham, currently plays for the Vancouver Cannons of the B.C. Premier Baseball League and is also a member of Canada’s Junior National Team. Wick followed the draft using an online draft tracker and waited a day and a half through the lengthy process before his name popped up. “It was very exciting for me,” Wick said about getting picked, adding that Milwaukee’s system is a good place for young players to get their starts. “They’re not as rich as, say, the Yankees. They have to develop their players which

North Vancouver slugger drafted in 19th round

is better for me because they can’t just go out and buy a million-dollar player.” Wick, a catcher and right fielder, follows another B.C. product into the Brewers organization. Langley’s Brett Lawrie was picked in the first round, 16th overall, in 2008. He entered the organization as a catcher but was moved to second base and now plays in AA and is considered one of the club’s top prospects. Wick must now decide if he is going to sign with the Brewers and play rookie ball starting in the fall or remained unsigned and play NCAA baseball for St. John’s University — a team he has already signed with. That decision needs to be made by Aug. 15 but Wick and his family are still

weighing their options. “We haven’t decided yet,” he said. Before then he will take the field again for the Junior National Team, playing at a training camp in July before suiting up for the World Junior Baseball Championship July 23-Aug. 1 in Thunder Bay, Ont. Wick is the first player ever drafted from the Cannons in the club’s short twoyear history in the PBL.

GRAY-ALLAN - Penelope Penny died peacefully on March 29, 2010 with family and friends at her side and in her thoughts. Born in Bremerton, Washington, she grew up in Tacoma, with strong ties and many a summer spent in Sooke, BC. She later went to Seattle to work and attend the University of Washington. Came to live in Canada after marrying Doug in 1978, moved to West Vancouver and were blessed with two daughters Sarah and Cassy. Penny had many careers in life, her most recent as managing editor for two distinguished medical publications, however, nothing was more important to her than family, friends and pets. She will be missed by all, especially her loving cat, Jamie. Our special appreciation to the Doctors, nurses and staff at Lions Gate Hospital who took such good care of a very independent person. A celebration of Penny’s life will be held at 2:30 pm on Monday, June 28, 2010 at the Gleneagles Clubhouse, 6190 Marine Drive, West Vancouver. In lieu of flowers please donate to the charity of your choice, ours would be the BC Cancer Society and the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation.

March 19th, 1931 – June 13th, 2010

Patricia “Paddy” passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family after a brief struggle with cancer, aged 79 years. Paddy is survived by her loving husband of 54 years Wallace Bruce Mackay “Wally” and her children Elizabeth Armer (Douglas), Robert (Brenda), Brian (Christene), Fiona, Ellen (Stuart Cole) and James, and her grandchildren Ceilidh, Aaron, Madeline, Jennifer, Tara, Evan, Alden, Calum, Claire, Heather and Molly. Paddy was born in Egypt where her father served with the British Army Medical Corps. Her love of travel took her from her home in Netley Abbey, England, to Northern British Columbia where she met and married Wally, an Australian engineer. Together they travelled; living in several countries before finally settling in West Vancouver. While she had her hands full raising six children and then chasing after eleven grandchildren, Paddy remained active in the Catholic Church; supporting her local parish (St Anthony’s) and working with the Franciscan Sisters of Atonement. Paddy was loved by everyone and graced our lives with her faith, warmth and sense of fun. She was more than kind; her caring and compassion for those around her was a shining light in our lives that we will dearly miss. The funeral mass for Paddy will be 11am June 18th at St Anthony’s Catholic Church at 2347 Inglewood Avenue, West Vancouver. Prayers will be at 7pm on Thursday June 17th. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Franciscan Sisters of Atonement, 285 East Cordova Vancouver, BC, would be gratefully appreciated.

Fatherly Fears Moms are not the only ones who have fears about parenthood. Rational or not, here’s what dads are afraid of: • The baby not being theirs • Not having enough money to raise a child • Coping in the delivery room - primarily fainting, vomiting and fear of the sight of blood • Having to deliver the baby in an emergency • Health of baby and mom throughout pregnancy and delivery • Changes in spousal relationship and intimacy • Dropping or damaging the baby • The inability to protect their child • Their own mortality • Loss of independence • Being a good enough father • Making a personal connection with their child. How to cope? The first step in dealing with these kinds of fears is identifying them, then getting the help and knowledge to address them. Ignoring them tends to intensify the worry.
