One-time plumber gives $25M to LGH Donation earmarked for new patient care facility MARIA SPITALE-LEISK mspitale-leisk@nsnews.com

A one-time plumbing apprentice whose family history on the North Shore dates back 78 years has donated $25 million to Lions Gate Hospital. Keith Plumbing & Heating owner Paul Myers’ substantial donation makes it the largest financial contribution to a hospital foundation in B.C. by an individual, according to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation. “I’m just a plumber who worked hard and had some good luck in my life,” said Myers, who bought Keith Plumbing & Heating in the 1960s after apprenticing with the company founded in North Vancouver in 1911. The West Vancouver businessman also credits smart real-estate investments early on in his life for his success. “I can’t take it with me,” joked Myers, 82, to the News Wednesday, when asked why he made the donation. Lions Gate Hospital Foundation president Judy Savage praised Myers’ philanthropy. “This is certainly a transformational gift.These don’t come along every day.” Myers’ donation will be put towards Lions Gate Hospital’s long-term plans to create a new patient care facility. In the meantime, the hospital’s south acute tower has been renamed the Paul Myers tower in his honour. “It’s no surprise to

anybody that we need to improve our facilities,” said Savage, of Lions Gate’s aging infrastructure. During a North Vancouver City council meeting a year ago,Vancouver Coastal Health’s director of strategic planning hinted that a major facelift, including a possible new tower, was coming to Lions Gate in the next decade to address a projected population increase.

Men’s recovery house debated in Seymour JEREMY SHEPHERD newsroom@nsnews.com

It might be good and it might even be necessary, but for at least a few neighbours near Burr Place, a proposed alcohol treatment facility hits too close to home. More than 20 speakers tried to have the last word Tuesday night on the two-

storey, nine-bed recovery house for men penciled in for a tree-covered lot adjacent to Kiwanis Care Centre. The meeting, which was less crowded and more civil than the public dustups earlier this year, ended with council opting to close the hearing and vote on the facility’s future Sept. 28. Turning Point Recovery

Society opened a women’sonly treatment facility on Lloyd Avenue in August, 2014. The society’s men’sonly centre was originally earmarked for Windridge Drive but shifted to Burr Place following an outpouring of angst from residents. However, for a few neighbours on Berkley Road and in Browning

Place, the proposal took a 300-metre step in the wrong direction. “We moved here because it’s a safe environment that we felt comfortable raising our children in,” said Liza Laine, who spoke alongside her husband and young child. A recovery house could See District page 5

Parties promise national inquiry Candidates support inquiry into missing, murdered aboriginal women BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

North Shore candidates from three of the four major parties are all committing to hold a national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women if elected. The RCMP released a report in 2014 concluding there have been almost 1,200 cases of aboriginal women going missing or being murdered and that, even though they make up only 4.3 per cent of population, they account for 16 per cent of female homicides. When, during a Vancouver rally last week, New Democrat leader Thomas Mulcair made the promise to call an inquiry within the first 100 days of an NDP government, it drew the loudest, longest

applause of the night, said Carleen Thomas, NDP candidate for North Vancouver and a former Tsleil-Waututh Nation council member. “My favourite line he said was ‘Indigenous lives matter,’” Thomas said. “There are about 1,200 lives that need some closure. They need justice. Their lives were taken violently and the Harper government isn’t taking it seriously enough. It’s like their lives didn’t matter.” The Liberals first announced their commitment to a national inquiry in August of 2014, said Terry Beech, the party’s Burnaby NorthSeymour candidate. “We committed to implemented all 94 recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the national inquiry being the most

VOTE 2015 important one of those 94 conditions,” Beech said. “It’s a pattern that’s gone on for years and years and years and for us to sit by and do nothing is irresponsible. The only way we’re going to get to the bottom of it is to follow up.” Only the Conservatives, who are represented by Mike Little in Burnaby North-Seymour, argue against the inquiry. “We’ve said before what a terrible crime it is against the people. I don’t think we need another study on top of some 40 studies that have already been done. We need the police to catch those responsible and ensure that they’re punished,” he said.

Most cases have been solved, and Conservatives have brought forward more than two dozen criminal justice bills, which have stiffened sentences for crimes like murder, sexual assault and kidnapping, most of which have been opposed by the NDP, Little added. Ken Melamed, Green Party candidate in West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country, said his party too would support an inquiry. “We’re on board with the Liberals and the NDP in insisting that the inquiry is long overdue. It’s one of the recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In fact, we support all of the recommendations that came from that,” he said. “It’s part of our commitment to rebuilding a respectful relationship with First Nations across Canada. It’s something their communities have

been asking for.” Sarah Hunt, assistant professor in the First Nations and Indigenous Studies department at UBC, said calls for a national inquiry have been growing over the last 25 years thanks to growing awareness of the Downtown Eastside, the Highway of Tears and Robert Pickton. Though it started with First Nations advocates, it’s now reached the wider community as an election issue, she said. While different studies have landed on different numbers or ratios of aboriginal women who disappeared or been murdered, the numbers are likely underestimated, Hunt said. And in any case, there have been too many women to suffer violence, Hunt said. “The bottom line is that violence against native women has been See more page 10

Cap roadwork to get noiser, go later BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

Crews working on the project to replace the Capilano Road water main may now work a little later and a little louder. District of North Vancouver council voted Monday night to approve a noise bylaw variance that

will extend work hours on the massive project from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays, if required. Generators for power and pumps may also run 24-7, “provided measures are taken to reduce noise to as low as reasonably practical.” Work may continue after 8 p.m. for emergency situations and to complete

concrete pours for the project’s three valve chambers. Metro Vancouver has also been given the OK to use equipment that exceeds noise limits such as a hydro vacuum truck, which can have a noise level as high as 110 decibels — about the same as rock concert or rivet

gun. That equipment may only be used between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday though. According to Metro Vancouver staff, it will be used sparingly. No construction will take place on Sundays. Work is expected to last on the project, which has also caused traffic detours, until the spring of 2016.

A clinical services review for the hospital is currently underway, according to Vancouver Coastal Health spokesperson Gary Carr, with a more refined vision expected within the year to determine what the specialized needs are from the Lions Gate Hospital community. Last year Lions Gate opened its doors to a $62.2million acute mental health facility, the HOpe Centre, a project that saw the foundation’s previous largest donation of $10 million from Greta and Robert Ho. West Vancouver businessman Jim Pattison earlier put in $5 million for a major revamp of Lions Gate’s emergency department. For his part in supporting the hospital, Myers said it’s the result of surrounding himself with smart people and the hard work he’s put in over the years. When he was four years old Myers’ family settled in Lynn Valley. He recalls mainly working-class people living in Lynn Valley’s east end in the 1930s, with few fancy houses. At 15, Myers made his first investment, purchasing a humble abode on Wellington Road for $150, astute to the fact it had five extra lots. He sold it for $500.Two years later the new owners sold

it for $4,000. “I thought that was a good lesson: you can’t sneeze at a profit,” says Myers. He carried that mantra throughout his life, accumulating more properties, mostly industrial, and offloading them when the time was right. A pre-apprentice certificate in hand, Myers knocked on the door of Keith Plumbing & Heating’s then-headquarters at 17th and Lonsdale in 1954. They hired him, but he wasn’t a good apprentice, admits Myers with a laugh, saying he’s not mechanically minded. It turns out he was more business savvy. After taking over the reins 10 years later, Myers continued to grow the company with a strong focus on commercial and public projects as well as government contracts. Still at the helm of Keith Plumbing & Heating, Myers says he is getting tired. “The longest holiday I ever had in my life was 11 days, once,” he says. In his spare time Myers enjoys being outside and routinely hiked the Grouse Grind up until last year. In addition to celebrating his contribution to Lions Gate, he will soon welcome his first great-grandchild. “I’m looking forward to that because grandkids are one of my best things in life,” says Myers.

bring theft, robbery and violence to the familyoriented neighbourhood, according to Laine, who said she feared the actions of unstable men with drug and alcohol addictions. “We all know the stories. They’ll do whatever it takes to get what they need,” she said. Besides constituting a risk to children, the centre is also a threat to the pocketbook, according to Laine. “We’re concerned from a real-estate and financial perspective that we’re going to lose money or our house will go down in value,” she said. Her husband, Greg Laine, concurred, questioning the selection of the tree-covered lot. “I don’t understand how a chunk of woods is ideal for this. People want to recover, they don’t want to birdwatch,” he said. The site poses no risk to children, according to Dr. Mark Lysyshyn,Vancouver Coastal Health medical officer for the North Shore. “I would suggest

At Tuesday’s public hearing, Lysyshyn stressed the need for a recovery

house as part of the spectrum of treatment needed to treat addiction. “Support recovery services are needed in every community,” he said. Speaking in opposition to the facility, Dave Iverson urged council to protect the site’s ecology and uphold the official community plan. “Every change to the

OCP means death by a thousand cuts, and it’s us, the residents of the area that are forced to deal with the dead body,” Iverson said. The centre is very much aligned with the OCP, according to district planners Annie Mauboules and Natasha Letchford. In a recent staff report

the two planners noted the OCP’s aim of developing “supportive housing for those with mental health and/or addiction issues.” The project is “desperately needed on the North Shore,” according to Don Peters, chairman of the Community Housing Action Committee, who lauded Turning Point’s emphasis on life skills including employment counseling. The cost of the land for the facility is miniscule when cast against the cost of treating catastrophic illnesses related to addiction, according to Peters. “I am deeply and personally invested in the success of the District of North Vancouver,” he said. “Helping people is what we do here.” While there were some

misgivings about Turning Point’s inability to conduct criminal background checks on patients, the majority of Tuesday’s speakers spoke in favour of the project. “There’s a tremendous need in our community for this type of facility,” said Blueridge resident Barry Fenton. “It’s the right thing to do to provide this type of facility for men in the District of North Vancouver.” If approved, the centre would be leased to B.C. Housing for $1 a year. B.C. Housing would provide construction capital for the Turning Point-operated facility. In order for the land to be rezoned, the project would need a majority vote from District of North Vancouver council. Coun. Mathew Bond did not attend the meeting.

Taking care T

housands of B.C. caregivers are looking after elderly loved ones at home with little or no support. But instead of acknowledgement and help, they are often ignored. That is, they were until B.C.’s seniors’ advocate lifted the veil on what is a little recognized part of the province’s Better at Home system for the frail elderly. According to Isobel Mackenzie, the province’s seniors’ advocate, the current system, where people are encouraged to stay in their homes as long as possible, is extremely weak because of a lack of basic support. Her report said there are too few respite beds and not enough home support, with the result that about 29 per cent of caregivers are reporting distress as they look after their their loved ones, many of whom have dementia and other complex health issues.

MAILBOX

Many of these caregivers grew up during the Great Depression, when you looked after your own and you didn’t seek handouts. Others are sons and daughters looking after elderly parents and just don’t know how or have time to navigate the complicated health-care system. Thankfully, we don’t have to reinvent the wheel. There are programs in place, according to Mackenzie, just not enough of them. The seniors’ advocate is recommending that adult day programs, home support programs and respite beds (where elderly go to give their caregivers a break) are enhanced to keep pace with the growing seniors’ population. B.C. shouldn’t be providing second-class service to its elderly, and to do so could mean much higher costs for their care in the future as burned out caregivers turn to hospital emergency rooms and residential care to deal with crises.

Neighbours band together to aid feline Dear Editor: In the middle of the night, while away on a trip, we received the dreaded call from the Vancouver Animal Emergency Shelter telling us that our neighbours had brought in our catYoshi and I needed to make the call to euthanize him or have them perform heroic measures. On the advice of the vet, I made the heartbreaking decision to put him down. Yoshi, “ambassador of the 400-block of West 16th,” was

Yoshi

the most amazing cat that had a harem of neighbours he would visit. He chose us nine years ago and was the most loving, gentle cat. A fellow feline led his owner toYoshi where they found him unresponsive and foaming at the mouth. The cause of the poisoning was antifreeze, which undoubtedly came from one of the many work trucks that have taken up residence in our back lane since the construction of a new house

on West 15th Street.Yoshi was rushed to the vet and was turned away as they were closing in 10 minutes. They then got stuck on the Lions Gate Bridge during “bump-gate” and made it to Vancouver, but too late. The one positive that has come out of this is how my neighbours (we didn’t all know each other before) banded together to drive and comfortYoshi during his last hours.Thank you! We feel blessed to know that our

neighbours have our back. Our other cat also fell victim to the same development site, falling into the pit and bruising herself so badly that she was bleeding internally. We were able to save her. We forget sometimes that with all of this construction taking place in our backyards, it has an impact not only on the neighbourhood, but also on our four-legged friends. Alex Graham North Vancouver

Ironworkers bike lanes much improved, not so the view Dear Editor: As a recent new resident to North Vancouver and an avid cyclist, I appreciate the new and improved bike lanes on the Ironworkers Memorial (Second

Narrows Crossing). This will facilitate a significant easing of anxiety for both cyclists and pedestrians as they make the crossing. Once again the

CONTACTUS

Metro Vancouver area shows forward thinking for alternative/active transportation — one of the many reasons I moved to this area. I do have one small negative point. I am

disappointed that the fence does significantly reduce the view of the inlet. I agree with (MP Jane) Thornthwaite that drivers should concentrate on the road, but when stuck in the

inevitable traffic jams on the bridge it is somewhat soothing to look out over the beautiful vistas. It lowers the blood pressure. Norm Fear North Vancouver

Pick up after your pooch Dear Editor: I walk the North Shore trails daily with my lab, Sadie. I always take extra bags and pick up the “missed” doggy poo that dog owners conveniently don’t see. I wondered why there was so much lately; today six bags were not enough. Then I realized I have only been walking every other day because of arthritis problems.Yes, there are big, big problems in the world but caring starts at home. How can we be trusted to care for people if we can’t do the simple job of picking up after a dog while walking in a beautiful, free wilderness? Put more thought into everything we have that is wonderful and don’t abuse it ... because you never know. Louise Baker North Vancouver

VIEWPOINT

It’s no easy living where the wild things are If you live on the North Shore, the odds are you’ve had more than one close encounter with the wild things. After all, we live on the edge of one of the world’s last great wildernesses, a hinterland that starts at the Grouse Grind and goes all the way to Alaska. This wilderness is home to much of what’s left of the planet’s animal population, and so it’s not surprising that some of them can be found rummaging around in your garbage or hanging out in your hot tub. For us, it’s thrilling and a bit chilling, especially when the visitor weighs 150 or 200 kilos and comes with big teeth and claws, all the better to eat you with. But for the visitor, it’s mainly fatal. The death toll is depressing: in the last four years, B.C. “conservation” officers have dispatched 352 cougars, 72 grizzly bears and a stunning 1,872 black bears, mainly for doing what comes naturally: hunting for food.

Paul Sullivan

The North Side The tragic absurdity of all this came to a climax in July when one conservation officer decided to conserve, rather than destroy, two little black bear cubs he had orphaned after complying with government policy by shooting their mother. As we all know by now, the government suspended him for not killing the cubs, too. After much social media sound and fury, the conservation officer is back on the payroll and the two cubs are enjoying the hospitality of the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre near Parksville. They now have

names — Athena and Jordan — and you can go online and adopt one for $25. Are they ever cute. The centre will have them for 18 months and then they will be reintroduced into the wild, head for the nearest tasty trash, get shot by a conservation officer and end up tossed on the pile with the other 1,872 former miscreants. If you’re a fan of bitter irony, the whole idea of calling them “conservation officers” might strike you as funny, but I can see how “government bear assassins” won’t do. I suppose we can’t have coyotes and cougars and bears (oh my) wandering around at will, dining out on trash and terriers. And it’s no use moaning about how they’re only trying to survive — which they are — or that they were here first, which they were. But a less bureaucratic assessment of the danger might help. For many years, I lived close to Mosquito Creek, which is a wildlife superhighway and

the shortest direct route to some of the best eating on the North Shore. One day after Thanksgiving, we found ourselves hosting a follow-up feast for a huge mother black bear and her two cubs — the same configuration that got the conservation officer suspended. Momma bear took out the garbage can,

bungee cords and all, sat down and calmly finished off the turkey carcass while the cubs frolicked on the lawn. When she finished, she gathered up the kids and went and wreaked holiday havoc on Highland Boulevard. I’ll never forget that lady in her robe and curlers trying to direct traffic around the bears,

who eventually found their way back to the creek and into the woods. As exciting as it was (and there’s nothing more exciting than a 150-kilo bear squatting in your driveway), the last thing I wanted was for the “conservation” officers to end the whole pageant with See Conservation page 9

“Cure for the Cut”: Let’s do it right

Last week Justin Trudeau made specific mention of the need for a comprehensive approach to addressing the congestion issue on Highway #1 in North Vancouver. In listing off some examples of the kind of local transportation infrastructure needs a Liberal government would address if elected October 19th, he cited the 55 year old Lynn Creek Bridge The Liberal Party of Canada has committed to nearly double federal infrastructure investment to $125 billion – from the current $65 billion – over the next decade. This plan will enable us to kick start our economy and to renew aging infrastructure at a time when the cost of borrowing is at historic lows. The significance of Mr. Trudeau’s Lynn Creek Bridge mention is that it illustrates how a Liberal government intends to reach out to municipal government to inform where the greatest returns on infrastructure investment can be made. Taxing our patience Congestion on the approaches to the Second Narrows Bridge continues to impact our environment, our economy and our patience. North Vancouver’s current Member of Parliament deserves credit for helping to bring federal cost-sharing dollars to a provincial/District plan to fix some of the interchange problems that contribute to the traffic jams. The problem, however, is that the current plan does not go far enough. It will not be the “Cure for the Cut” as his election material claims. North Vancouver District planners and Mayor Richard Walton contend, for example, that significant widening of the four-lane Lynn Creek Bridge

(the “Orange Bridge”) is a key ingredient of the “Cure for the Cut.” Without this investment, the backups southbound down Mountain Highway will likely remain. A widened “Orange Bridge” would enable an eastbound entry ramp onto Highway 1. It would also assist the District with its plans to build a new east-west local road on the north side of the new Orange Bridge Deck to connect Mount Seymour Parkway directly with Upper Mountain Highway. However replacement of the Orange Bridge is not in the current plan and is not even scheduled for consideration for at least ten years. Not great news if you are frequently stuck crawling down Mountain Highway. Let’s do it right If we’re truly committed to a “Cure for the Cut” then let’s do the job right the first time rather than piecemeal over the next 20 years. But I think we all know the solution is more than additional roadway. We need leadership that fosters a broader discussion on transportation – including enhanced support for public transit that doesn’t turn away from the tough questions. As your Member of Parliament for North Vancouver, I will be a leader in driving that discussion forward. Jonathan Wilkinson is North Vancouver’s Liberal candidate in the upcoming Federal election. He is a Rhodes Scholar, former clean-tech CEO and North Shore soccer coach. Authorized by the official agent for Jonathan Wilkinson.

INQUIRING REPORTER The latest Nanos Research poll numbers show Canada’s three major political parties neck and neck in the lead-up to the Oct. 19 election. With so many close races, including in the North Shore’s three ridings, are formerly apathetic voters perking up and listening more closely to each candidate’s campaign promises? We hit the streets to ask: With this tight election race, are you paying more attention? Tell us what you think. Weigh in at .-.")-%$40. ' *(/!( #2!,(1"&+"!-3

Ron Cockfield North Vancouver “Not really because I’ve already made my mind up.”

Cathy Scrimshaw North Vancouver “Now I’m semi-decided, so I’m paying less attention. I’m definitely not voting Conservative.The Green party is now on my radar.”

Are you paying more attention to this election?

Kaeden Atkinson North Vancouver “A little bit. It’s the future of our country, you know.”

Gary LeBlanc North Vancouver “Somewhat.The way I vote I vote against somebody. So I’m against (Stephen) Harper. I’d like to get more polling info.”

Paul Rogers Ladysmith “Yes.You’re supposed to, basically. I really can’t tell a lot between the big parties. It’s (the election) not really exciting.”

Moms win anonymity in bid for murdered millionaire’s estate BETHANY LINDSAY Contributing writer

Five women whose children could be heirs to a slain West Vancouver millionaire’s fortune have won their legal bid for anonymity. The families all plan to seek a piece of Gang Yuan’s $50-million state, but have said they wouldn’t be interested in the money if their names were revealed because of the potential for violence, harassment, identity theft, fraud and discrimination. On Friday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Terence Schultes approved a publication ban on the

identities of the women and their families, as well as a sealing order on court documents in the case. Yuan left no will behind when he was killed and chopped into more than 100 pieces in early May. Each child has been confirmed as Yuan’s offspring through DNA testing, according to affidavits filed in court, and he financially supported some if not all of them. The oldest is seven years old. Li Zhao, who is married to Yuan’s cousin, is charged with second-degree murder in the slaying. –Vancouver Sun/Pacific Newspaper Group

Inquiry would get down to root causes From page 3 normalized for a long time and it’s taken many years of advocacy to finally get the public and the police to recognize this is a real problem and we need to do something about it,” she said. “There’s clearly a pattern. We need to do something to better understand those patterns.” An inquiry, which could be structured in many forms, would get down to

the root causes, Hunt said. “It’s not just the root causes in the lives of indigenous women. It’s also the root causes in society in general. What are the attitudes we need to change? What are the underlying causes for this widespread violence?” she said More than asking and answering the important questions, an inquiry ought to come with a builtin mechanism to ensure its recommendations are put into action, Hunt said.

VIEWPOINT

Shift in voting patterns expected

A number of observers have suggested the federal election’s outcome will be “decided” in British Columbia for the first time, as if the results of the province’s 42 ridings will determine which party forms government. I’m not so sure about that — after all, Ontario has many more ridings and suburban Toronto itself is still ground zero for all three major parties — but it does look like B.C. could have an unusually high number of ridings that may change hands come Oct. 19. In the past few elections, about three-quarters of our province’s ridings could be considered fairly safe territory for one of the three major parties. This time around, however, the addition of six new ridings plus the apparent volatility of the electorate suggest almost half of B.C.’s ridings may be genuinely competitive races. Unless there is

Keith Baldrey

View from the Ledge some kind of political earthquake the likes of which no one has picked up on, the Conservatives can be considered a lock in regions such as the Fraser Valley and parts of the Interior and North. Likewise, the NDP has a stranglehold on parts of Vancouver and areas of strength on Vancouver Island and the North Coast. The Liberals can’t consider any seat to be particularly “safe” for them, although they do have two incumbents and offer the longest-serving MP in B.C. (Hedy Fry in

Vancouver-Centre) as a candidate. Of those roughly 20 B.C. seats that may be “in play,” about 15 of them may keep Easterners up late if it is indeed a close election result across the country, as currently it seems may be the case. For starters, three ridings may be genuine three-way races, which is a rarity in this province. If we transpose the 2011 election results over the new riding boundaries (and the six new ridings themselves) it shows that in Surrey Newton, Vancouver Centre and the new riding of Vancouver Granville the winning party received 35 per cent or less of the votes cast, with the other two parties close behind. The Liberals, on paper at least, should once again be considered to be competitive in all three ridings and there’s every reason to assume the other two parties will hold their ground as well. In another dozen or so ridings, we can expect

tight two-way races between the Conservatives and the NDP (barring a so-far-unseen significant rise in Liberal popularity in B.C.). If there is indeed an Orange Wave about to sweep through B.C., the NDP could be favoured to steal about seven seats from sitting Conservatives. But if the governing party can hold its voter base, it can expect to hang on to those seats with less than 50 per cent of the vote as the others split up the non-Conservative pool of voters. In any event, the ridings to keep a close eye on in Metro Vancouver region in the coming weeks (other than those potential three-way fights) include Burnaby North-Seymour, Burnaby South, Port Moody-Coquitlam, Surrey Centre and Vancouver South. There are five ridings on Vancouver Island that will be interesting: Courtenay-Alberni, Cowichan-MalahatLangford, Esquimalt-

Saanich-Sooke, North Island-Powell River and Victoria. And in the Interior, the new riding of South Okanagan-West Kootenay bears watching. Of course, it’s still early days yet and the campaign is only really just beginning (as I wrote here a couple of weeks back, August was basically a dress rehearsal for the real thing). Polls will go up and down and continue to contradict each other. But if there is indeed a serious shift in voting patterns, things will get much more interesting within the B.C. political landscape. We may or may not “decide” the election outcome, but in any event I have a feeling the rest of Canada will pay a bit more attention to what happens within our provincial boundaries on election night than has been the case previously.

On their new collaborative album, Vancouver musicians Alicia Hansen and Ben Brown challenged themselves to take a new approach to their craft. “I’m happy with how we opened up the songwriting forum so the music features a lot of improvisation and more experimental song

structures,” says one half of the duo, Hansen, a Bowen Island resident. The resulting work, Companion, featuring Hansen on vocals and piano, with Brown on drums, was released Aug. 25. In celebration, the long-time collaborators are set to take the stage at an album launch event Thursday, Sept. 24 at Pyatt Hall at the VSO School of Music. Hansen and Brown met while both were studying at Vancouver Community College. They played in different ensembles together and eventually started collaborating on her songs, working together as a duo. “We just discovered that we had a really great

musical chemistry and became friends really easily and we’ve sort of gone from there,” says Hansen. While Companion is their first official duo release, they have one recording already under their belts, 2008’s Freighters, which Hansen describes as more of a demo of sorts, recorded in just over a day. “We just went in there and practically recorded (the songs) live off the floor,” she says. Some of the material later went on to find its way onto Hansen’s solo debut, 2011’s Fractography, made while she and Brown were on hiatus. Having resumed working together, the artists began crafting the

new crop of songs, typically working from original material created by Hansen and then pivotally shaped by Brown. “Sometimes for me the songs are in a really raw, unfinished form. So then we get together and we play and through the process of playing and improvising the songs take form and develop. It’s my original material, but Ben helps me to develop it and take it in directions that I might not otherwise. And of course his drum lines are really a key part of the compositions,” says Hansen. Having created enough material, they decided it was time to enter the studio once more. “The idea was to make

a duo-based record so that it was really featuring the drums and piano and the interplay between those two instruments but then also using a few other instruments to highlight certain aspects of the music and to bring out certain melodies and harmonies,” says Hansen. Three other players joined them, enriching and embellishing the music, including producer Dave Sikula (The Inhabitants) on guitar, Russell Sholberg (Airplane Trio) on bass, and Peggy Lee on cello. Tracks include “Outside my Window,” which lyrically reflects Hansen’s home on Bowen and the atmosphere of living in

Roses, an Old French word that works perfectly well in English, is what Coeur de pirate (Québécois singersongwriter Béatrice Martin) has decided to call her new album. She composed and sings seven of the 11 songs on the recording in English with the other four in her native French.While Martin has worked in English before Roses is a courageous leap into the creative unknown for the 25-year-old Montréal musician. Coeur de pirate recorded the majority of the album with producer BjörnYttling (Lykke Li, Chrissie Hynde, Peter, Bjorn and John) in Stockholm and also worked with Rob Ellis (P.J. Harvey) and Ash Workman on a couple of tracks each. The result is a seamless pop record that moves effortlessly between French chanson and English tunes. Martin spoke to the North Shore News earlier this week just before she unveiled the new songs live at Métropolis as part of the week-long POP Montréal festival. Tomorrow night she’s at the Commodore Ballroom. North Shore News: Growing up in Montréal did you have much contact with English culture? Béatrice Martin: I went to kindergarten in English — all my TV and stories were in English.That was great because I got immersed in it pretty quickly. North Shore News: Was that the equivalent of French immersion? Béatrice Martin:Yea, it’s really weird basically my preschool was in English and then I went to a normal Québéc school where they only start teaching English when you’re in fourth grade. North Shore News: At home, outside of school, did you speak English at all? Béatrice Martin: Not really no. I would watch TV

and movies but otherwise it was just me. North Shore News: How about now outside your professional life? Béatrice Martin:Yes, I have friends who speak English and sometimes with my parents a little bit and I have family in Vancouver. My aunt married a journalist from B.C. and they live out there.We all speak English and French. North Shore News: Your first foray into working in English was the Trauma soundtrack. How did that come about? Béatrice Martin: The TV show approached me to do it. Conceptually each season they would ask an artist to just do covers for a whole season and it was great. (Coeur de pirate recorded 12 songs for the soundtrack to the fifth season of the Canadian TV series Trauma including the McGarrigle sisters’ “Heartbeats Accelerating,” Bill Withers’“Ain’t No Sunshine” and AmyWinehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good.”) North Shore News: Did you choose the material that you sang? Béatrice Martin: Most of it and then some of the songs were chosen. North Shore News: So they had significance for you personally? Béatrice Martin: All the songs that I chose marked me growing up. And other artists just inspired me like Tom Waits and The Libertines. It’s all stuff that I listened to. North Shore News: When you’re writing your own material how do you decide when one’s should be in English? Is it a conscious process?

Béatrice Martin: Not really. It’s like when you speak English you think in English. It’s like if I’m writing in English I will think in English. It’s not like I translate — it starts in that language. North Shore News: Do you have a specific process you follow when you compose? Béatrice Martin: Usually I will record a melody on my phone — it can happen anywhere — I can have it while walking and thinking and then I try to find the chords and then I will write a text.That’s usually how it goes. North Shore News: So the music comes first? Béatrice Martin: Always. North Shore News: How do you approach the words to a song? Béatrice Martin: It depends on how I’m feeling at that moment — if there’s a story I need to tell and if there’s something that happened I need to get it off my chest. Usually it will come naturally if I have something on my mind I will usually write it out fairly quickly. North Shore News: Does performing in English change how you approach the music conceptually? Béatrice Martin:Yes the tone changes when I write in English which is kind of funny.The tone in French is much more nostalgic as opposed to the tone in English where it’s more direct. I don’t know if it’s just new to me and I’m relatively new at writing in English but it was interesting to see how that changed things. North Shore News: Is it more difficult or does it feel like a natural progression? Béatrice Martin: I think I will get used to it. I’m not used to singing in English so it’s a little bit harder live but maybe it’s just a matter of placing my voice when I sing in English. North Shore News: You also chose to work with three different producers on Roses (BjörnYttling, Ash Workman and Rob Ellis ). See Martin page 15

While that journey, both personal as well as artistic, is often expressed through her songwriting, she does take some creative liberties. “My music is also a really carefully crafted

How was that? Béatrice Martin: It was great. I got to work with people I have admired my whole life so it was really really cool to see them work. I just gave them carte blanche to do whatever they wanted with the songs. North Shore News: Did you bring finished songs to them or did they get worked on during the sessions? Béatrice Martin: The demos were finished.They arranged.The structure and the melody was done. It was like over the span of six months maybe but it was on and off. I would go for like three weeks in Stockholm and then come back and then two weeks in London.

North Shore News: After Roses in my iTunes comes Colin Stetson’s and Sarah Neufeld’s album. It made a great juxtaposition of music from Montréal-based musicians. Do you feel part of a musical community? Béatrice Martin: It’s funny a lot of musicians come to Montreal because it’s very low rent and it’s very cheap to create in Montreal as opposed to going to New York or other cities. I think that’s a part of it. It’s a small town and we kind of all know each other and get influenced by what the other person’s doing. I like to think I’m part of that multicultural aspect of a bohemian town.

fiction in some ways. It is definitely expressing parts of me but sometimes in a way that’s almost in code, it’s in metaphor and it’s using lyrics to evoke a feeling rather than to tell the story of something that’s literally happened.

• Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles

By now you know. Adding body collagen directly reduces wrinkles, increases skin elasticity, and adds vital moisture to your skin. Indirectly, collagen thickens and strengthens your hair. You may also know that collagen production slows by 1% per year after the age of 21. Can you gain it back? Yes. But not by eating collagen. You see, collagen is a protein. When you ingest it, your body breaks it down, like any other protein, and uses it as food. When you want the real beauty benefits of collagen, you have to generate it.

Opportunity awaits all those who aspire to create visual art but panic at the thought of drawing something in the likeness of anything. Mixed media artist Sandrine Pelissier and expressive arts facilitator Sophie Babeanu are inviting people to take part in a collective art project called Time Lines. No drawing skills are required. Participants will be asked

447

CHRISTINE LYON clyon@nsnews.com

to simply write a few words along pre-drawn guidelines. Once finished, the text will form a visual representation of a crosssection of a tree. “A lot of the time people are a bit intimidated to draw or paint, so we want to make it easy for them to participate,” says Pelissier, who asks that participants bring along a non-perishable food donation to support the Harvest Project. When people arrive at her studio on Garden Avenue, they will be greeted with a relaxing recording Babeanu has put together that encourages listeners to share a piece of wisdom. They will then be directed to a large piece of paper with concentric circles drawn on it and given the opportunity to write their words of

ARTS DIVORCED? SEPARATED?

More people means a bigger painting From page 20 wisdom along the gently curving lines. Pelissier expects the final product will contain a vast array of penmanship styles, languages and ideas. “So, it should be fun to read,” she says. “The more people, the more circles, the bigger the painting.” At the end of the weekend, she plans to mount and varnish the artwork. Those who contributed to the piece can enter a draw to win the original and those who don’t win will be able to purchase prints, with proceeds benefitting the Harvest Project. The Time Lines project is part of Culture Days, an annual Canada-wide event that happens Sept. 25, 26 and 27 and sees artists, cultural groups and volunteers self-mobilize to host free participatory public activities. On the

North Shore alone there are more than 40 free events and hands-on activities set to take place. Pelissier and Babeanu decided their collaborative art project should result in the image of a tree to reflect one of Pelissier’s favourite muses. “Most of my work in landscapes is related to the forests and the trees,” she explains. “I’m really inspired by the everyday life around me.” As a resident of the Upper Lonsdale area, Princess Park is one of her top spots to go walking and gather creative energy. Originally from France, Pelissier moved to Canada 16 years ago and has been painting ever since. While many artists struggle to define their own work, she has found that “Zen Art Nouveau” is a fairly accurate descriptor of her style. “What I really like to do

is mix elements of painting with elements of drawing,” she says, noting she often likes to create repetitive patterns inspired by nature. “To me, it’s almost like a meditation thing because it takes me a lot of time, but then it’s also very relaxing,” she says. “That’s where the zen part comes from.” Her French heritage also influences her work, particularly the intricate linear designs and flowing curves characteristic of Art Nouveau that can be seen all over Paris. In addition to making and selling paintings, Pelissier also teaches a variety of art classes and workshops at her studio. For her and Babeanu, Time Lines offers a way for people to express themselves through art, without the intimidation factor. “It’s a way to make it more accessible to everybody,” Pelissier says.

JULIE CRAWFORD ContributingWriter

If last year’s hit The Maze Runner was the first child in the family — ambitious, concise — bridge film Maze Runner: Scorch Trials is very much the middle sibling in that it is changeable, desperate to please and generally all over the map. The film opens with a current-issue flight of people from their homes, fleeing not only violence and government persecution but a mysterious virus. As we learned in the first film, an agency with the acronym WCKD — and a paradoxical mantra “WCKD is good” — has been experimenting on children to develop an antibody to the virus.

FILM

Entire cities swallowed up in the sand

From page 28

pack were sent to the Glade, a Lord of the Flies social experiment surrounded by a giant and deadly maze. Our hero Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) emerges with a small pack of survivors and is put in a detention centre of sorts, full of other teen Darwin winners safe from the scorched desert wasteland that has covered the earth. But are they safe? Mr. Jansen (Aidan Gillen, Game of Thrones), the man in charge, looks pretty weaselly and has an illdefined accent. And teens keep disappearing, talking excitedly about being sent to “some kind of farm”. Yep, Holocaust overtones everywhere. Thomas and friends (played by Kaya Scodelario, Ki Hong Lee,Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Alexander Flores, Dexter Darden, Jacob Loffland) realize that they’ve traded one prison for another and set off to find a resistance group known as “the Right Arm”. “If the elements don’t kill you, the Cranks will,” warns Jansen. Ah yes.The virus known as “the Flare” turns people into zombies, necessitating a big shift in tone and a big bump in the special effects makeup budget from the first movie.These aren’t your shuffling, Walking Dead-variety zombies but

incredibly fast undeads with killer parkour skills. Scorch Trials veers into horror movie territory here, with plenty of jump scares plus gore and goo and monstrous things poking out of abdomens. Things get a little darker, too, when one former Glader decides he’d rather commit suicide than turn into a Crank. There’s impressive urban carnage outside of the facility; calamity on a much larger scope than in the last film, sand storms and epic lightning. One fantastic chase sequence sees members of the group pursued by dead things through a toppled, leaning skyscraper. They find their way to a gang hideout presided over by Jorge (Giancarlo Esposito) and his surrogate daughter Brenda (Rosa Salazar) who view the teens as their ticket to a better place. These latter characters bring much-needed energy to the proceedings and a humour that feels like they walked on from another film set. Entire cities have been swallowed up by sand, skyscraper tops and bridge spans poking through the dunes. Miraculously, the road to the mountains and the Right Arm is not only passable but completely sand free. What seems like a whole other movie, again, starts here, with newcomers

Barry Pepper and Lili Taylor gathering what valuable virus-free kids still exist and moving on, to where, we don’t know. Nor do we have an answer as to why the mazes – turns out there were others – were even there in the first place. Patricia Clarkson is back, in a thankless role as the head baddie, with uncertain motivation. It’s all very vague. It’s one futuristic Odyssean trial after another, with Thomas

insisting that he go it alone and his friends agreeing to tag along, despite the fact that someone other than Thomas always dies along the way. No resolution here, just a bridge to the final instalment (or two) where we hope all will be answered. “I’m tired of running,” someone finally, mercifully, says. After more than two hours of chase sequences but not a footstep of character development, so are we.

FASHION & STYLE

Earthy colours define fall

Dear Mattie: What colours are in fashion this fall? Excited in Delbrook

FASHIONABLE FUNDRAISER LGH Thrift Shop volunteers work the runway. page 32

Dear Delbrook: This fall season brings an extraordinary variety of colours, prints, brocades and combinations of them. The styling is about taking pieces and creating a unique look that encompasses the current trends. The biggest trend in colours is combinations of them. The sense of confidence it exudes is the other biggest trend. This mixing and matching is not a street wear look — it will require some finesse. There is also a casual look this season. It comes from wearing a lesser variety of colours. Wearing one colour head to toe creates a casual look. It could also be called minimalist. This is not a boring look — the colour can easily be orange. Every shade of orange is popular this season. Many colours are also trendy to mix and match or wear tone on tone: desert brown, rust, mustard yellow, deep red, deep warm blue, purple, sage green and ivory. Ivory is the shade of white that many ladies will be wearing after Labour Day. Again, don’t be surprised if you see an outfit head to toe in shades of ivory. Many of this season’s prints have a smart look. They are not subtle. They are graphic and bold in colour and design. Stripes, checks and flowers are available, but the trendiest prints are abstract and not traditional. They come in basic black and white, but also in a variety of colour combinations. Mixing your prints has become a very sophisticated look. Look for a root colour or a consistent pattern to pull the look together. Textures are also big this season.You will see them

everywhere and in many pieces. This season is not committed to the traditional use of textures. Brocade is the best example of this. Brocades have many colours entwined in their design, with a bit of muted gold to provide an international chic flavour. Brocades follow the same theme as seasonal colours in that they are available in every trendy shade as well as in a combination of colours. A subtler texture is lace. The new lace is not dainty, it is dense. Traditional fabrics are also back in fashion. What used to be considered luxurious has become contemporary. Suede, corduroy and knits are making a comeback with a fresh perspective. They are available in many colours to support the tone-on-tone look. The look is fresh and modern, not vintage. Neutrals may come in handy if you want to rein in some of the bold colours, patterns and textures. Camel is a new trendy neutral that can be worn to enhance or subdue your outfit. It is a creamy and vibrant colour. It is not beige. Charcoal grey and black can also neutralize the personal expression in your outfits. Usually, I suggest how to wear trends, but this season all I can do is tell you what the trends are. My recommendation is to mix and match everything and choose what you like. It is such a bold season of styling, you really can’t go wrong. Own it. Adieu, Mattie Mattie is a freelance writer and fashion expert.

The timing is perfect and the plot draws some parallels to one particular election race on the North Shore in the world premiere of the

political satire, The Best Laid Plans: a Musical. Set in Ottawa during the run-up to a federal election, the story centres around Daniel Addison, a speechwriter for the leader of the Liberal Opposition, who wants to rid himself of the political world in favour of a university professor gig. But before that can happen he’s given a Herculean task: find a Liberal candidate to run in an unassailable Conservative riding. The same strategy, underway in constituencies across the country, is unfolding as well in the Conservative-stronghold West Vancouver riding where the Liberals are running star candidate and former West Vancouver mayor Pamela GoldsmithJones. “It’s interesting, isn’t it?” says Best Laid Plans actor Nick Fontaine, of art paralleling politics.

The Lower Lonsdale resident, who plays the speechwriter, Daniel, in the show is excited to bring to life Terry Fallis’ award-winning novel The Best Laid Plans, which won the 2008 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour and CBC Canada Reads 2011. “It’s been in the works for four years,” says Fontaine of the musical. “When the audition came up I said, I want to see what this is really about, because there is so much buzz about the show.” Fontaine acts opposite Andrew Wheeler who plays the chosen Liberal candidate — a crusty old Scottish engineering professor named Angus McLintock. Daniel manages to convince a begrudging Angus to throw his hat in the ring, with the promise that he will lose. But their best laid plans See Touchstone page 41

Touchstone Theatre celebrating 40th anniversary From page 37 go hilariously awry when Angus is elected. “I won’t ruin it for you but there’s stuff that happens,” says Fontaine with a laugh. At the heart of the musical is a message that Fontaine figures will awaken those who are disengaged from the political process in this country. He notes there is some ambivalence among Canadians during this election, like they don’t feel represented or they worry about strategic voting. “The musical plays

off those themes, like their voice isn’t being heard,” says Fontaine. “The message is: Hey, go and vote and have your say. And make your voice heard. It’s about choice and standing up.” There’s one more caveat: the play is not anti-Conservative, explains Fontaine. “We destroy all-comers. It’s a satire on Canadian federal election politics,” says Fontaine. It’s been a treat for him to perform alongside Wheeler who Fontaine saw on stage at UBC when he was coming up as an actor.

“I thought, he’s so good there’s no way I’m ever going to work with him,” says Fontaine. He’s equally effusive with his praise for fellow cast members including Patti Allan, a Handsworth secondary alum. “The cast is crazy talented. We spend the whole day laughing,” says Fontaine. He is no stranger to Best Laid Plans director Peter Jorgensen of Patrick Street Productions who directed Fontaine in Avenue Q mounted at the Arts Club Theatre last year. “Getting to work with

Peter was a total treat. To get to work with him back-to-back, I’m a little spoiled,” says Fontaine. The Best Laid Plans will kick off the venerable Touchstone Theatre’s 40th anniversary season and is the biggest show mounted in their history. The company’s all-Canadian mandate has helped launch some of the country’s most luminary playwrights and actors. A graduate of thenCapilano College’s Theatre Diploma program, later obtaining a BFA in acting from UBC, Fontaine credits his early years on

“very artsy” Cortes Island for fostering his love of music and acting. When he later moved to Campbell River for high school he signed up for “all the bands, and all the choirs and all the acting groups.” Not only is Fontaine an actor, he is also a trained percussionist who sometimes performs double duty on stage and in the pit. Such was the case when Fontaine played Ritchie Valens in The Buddy Holly Story which smashed box office records through six holdovers at Regina’s Globe Theatre. “I’m lending my

interpretation of the character to the show and then suddenly you get to hop on the drum kit,” recalls Fontaine of the Buddy Holly experience. “That show was an absolute riot.” Asked if he would ever consider working behind the scenes, Fontaine says his path is clear cut. “I really enjoy acting, acting is where I belong,” says Fontaine. “People who write the shows are beautiful architects. As a performer, I take pride in being a really great carpenter and bringing those designs to life.”

Auto braking needs a green light

Design The CX-3 slots in as the entry-level model in Mazda’s SUV range; to keep costs down, it shares its platform with its Mazda3 sibling. However, with its raised ride height and bulging wheel arches, the CX-3 is a proper crossover. On closer inspection of its stats though, the CX-3 is quite a bit lighter than its key

Last week, several manufacturers banded together to announce that they supported making automated emergency braking systems standard on all vehicles, not just as feature content, but as law. Volvo was one, as you’d expect, but so too were driving-pleasure champions Mazda and EV forward thinkers Tesla. In all, 10 major car makers said they’d like to have automated braking system standardized across all ranges, rather than being offered as part of a technology package or as an expensive option. Collision avoidance and mitigation systems are already fairly commonplace, but they’re often bundled together with automatic cruise control or other features. To the body governing U.S. Highway safety, that’s

2016 Mazda CX-3

CX-3 fits a CUV niche David Chao

Behind the Wheel

With the car industry’s habit of making every new generation of cars bigger and bigger, a void was created in the sub-compact crossover segment. Mazda’s answer to fill that void is its allnew CX-3. Smaller than its bestselling model, the CX-5, the CX-3 is still a true Mazda, sporting the brand’s contemporary signature features. Mazda positions

itself as a sportier, trendier brand and the CX-3, with its full suite of Skyactiv technologies and Kodo-Soul of Motion design, achieves that objective. The CX-3 competes with other new entries such as the Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Trax and Jeep Renegade. This segment is growing very quickly but Mazda is well positioned to capture a significant share, thanks to its great design.

Are you sure that behemoth racing behind you will stop? From page 49 a problem for the pragmatic buyer.There’s almost no reason you should need an automatic braking system, right? If you’re paying attention and watching the road, if you’ve got your phone tucked safely away in a cubby and have Bluetooth engaged in case you do need to make a call, if you’ve got your mirrors set properly and are following at a safe and prudent distance, it’s just something most of us don’t need. So why should we have to pay for it? Thus, mostly we don’t. Unlike heated seats or a sunroof, customers can’t really be shown the usual feature-benefit path with an automated safety feature like collision avoidance. “With this, you won’t run into people.” “I wasn’t really planning on hitting anyone in the first place.” Further, there are those who decry the proliferation of these systems as further coddling a breed of drivers who get less skillful and attentive by the minute.With cars doing so much for us automatically already, from shifting to anti-lock braking, aren’t we already in an era where speed is expected but not respected? We expect even the humblest economy cars to turn, stop and steer on a dime, regardless of weather, and seemingly regardless of velocity. But let’s pull ABS out here as an example and take a look at it in the cold light of day. Anti-lock Brakes (ABS) are one of those features it’s almost impossible to find missing from a car. Only the most bare-bones compacts — the kind dealers don’t usually bother stocking — are ABS free, and that usually means roll up windows and manual mirrors and other anachronisms. ABS is an ancient system, dating all the way back to French aircraft pioneer Charles Voisin in 1929. His simple flywheel-based system allowed pilots to go full lock on the brakes without worrying about skidding; the system would simply bleed off a little brake fluid if the wheel locked in place, so there was no need to feather the brake pedal. The leap from aircraft to vehicles didn’t occur until the 1970s, as a luxury

feature on Cadillacs and Chrysler Imperials and Lincoln Continentals, all at around the same time. These rolling Palaces of Versailles were no place for racing driver proficiency at feeling when the brakes were right at the limit of overwhelming the tires. Instead, the luxury-swaddled driver simply stomped on the pedal and the chrome behemoth glided to a halt in three football fields instead of four. Progress! Nowadays, ABS systems are far more complex and include the widespread ability to adapt to rear loading, and even prime the brake pedal with fluid for maximum braking.You can get ABS on a motorcycle, and it’s practically a standard feature on any passenger car you can buy. On the track, where feel is everything, the racers could probably do without it. On the street, where minimum stopping distance equals safety, plain and simple, it’s a life saver. Funny how many people don’t seem to understand how ABS works and still pump their brake pedals — you can see the brake lights flickering on and off. Really, they should be simply standing on the brakes as hard as they can in an emergency situation. And that’s exactly what Automated Emergency Braking (AEB) will do for you now, and why so many manufacturers are interested in having it standard. Still don’t want it on your car? Well, you probably want it on your neighbour’s ride. Here’s why. First, despite enforcement, public opinion, and clever ideas like jamming, we’re more distracted on the road than ever. As big as the fines get, we can’t seem to break the habit of just glancing, just sneaking a peek at those tiny screens — maybe not to send a message, but just to see what our contact wants. It’s a hard habit to break. Ever been stopped at a stoplight with two cars in front of you and three off to your left, as some big-grilled crossover comes barrelling up behind you. Do they see you? Are they paying attention? Quick, make a choice: should that person have both antilock brakes and automated emergency braking? It’s the old George Carlin

line about everyone going faster than you being a maniac and everyone slower an idiot.We aren’t a highly trained driving population, many of us have picked up bad habits over the years, and every time you get into your car you put you and your passengers at the mercy of strangers. Nice strangers, granted — this is Canada, after all — but strangers with some really varying skill levels. Strangers whom you’ve seen barge their shopping carts into the tin can pyramid at the supermarket accidentally. That’s why others should have it, but here’s why you’ll want AEB too. First, yes, it’ll still likely come with automated cruise control, and if you’ve had to drive on the Upper Levels at any point, you’re going to want that to make the commute slightly more bearable. Second, the more advanced AEB systems would have likely stopped or at least slowed both the cars that hit that 13-year-old girl last year as she walked out from between two parked cars on West Third. See? Sometimes people do silly things, but they don’t deserve to be grievously wounded for doing so. Actually, most pedestrian deaths and injuries in the Lower Mainland actually happen in marked crosswalks, which begs the question: who’s really acting thoughtlessly? And never mind the word pedestrian, it’s people on foot. At some point, you’re going to get out of your car and cross the street to pick up bagels or a library book or your child from after-school art class. Again, do you want the cars bearing down on you to be electronically seeing you, even if their drivers don’t? We aren’t always prepared for someone to do something rash, to not follow the rules — but our cars could be. Even if automated driving is years away, with legal hurdles to overcome, this could be the next step in making our roads a little safer.

Performance Like the CX-5, the CX-3 uses a SkyactivG 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. However, unlike the CX-5, there is no optional engine for the CX-3 and power is lower, rated at 146 horsepower and 146 footpounds of torque. The reason for the decreased power is that the CX-3 doesn’t have the space to accommodate the exhaust manifold equipped to the CX-5.Therefore, a smaller one had to be used. The CX-3 is available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive. Regardless of the drivetrain, the only transmission available is a six-speed automatic. To increase the feeling of control, there is a manual shift mode and Drive Selection switch. Thanks to its light weight, the CX-3 feels peppy and boasts good acceleration off the line. However, on the highway it never feels fast and when attempting passing manoeuvres, the lack of pure power is noticeable. While it will never overtake a sports car with its pace, the CX-3 handles very well and is a joy to drive. Again, its light weight is a factor, as is its solid chassis. In the corners, the CX-3 is responsive, has no body roll, and the steering is linear. Mazda was able to add a decent amount of sound deadening material, however it is not as refined as a larger

optional 18-inch wheels, and available LED headlights with signature lighting.To further add to the CX-3’s sporty overall look, it has standard dual exhaust, which also mimics the CX-5. Inside, Mazda made great use of the limited space. The interior details feel more expensive than they are thanks to the quality of the fit and finish.The overall design is simple and minimalistic. The CX-3 is available in three trim levels.The base model, the GX, comes with a nice amount of standard features, while the GS and GT add more luxury and sporty details.

crossover. Engine and road noise is noticeable inside the cabin, but it is bearable, especially considering the CX-3’s price range.

Environment The cabin of the CX-3 will feel familiar to owners of modern Mazdas.The dash is dominated by a standard seven-inch colour touchscreen display. Front seat space is among the best in this segment and headroom is more than ample.The seats have a European feel and hold you securely in place. Despite its small exterior dimensions, Mazda wanted to ensure adults could ride comfortably in the rear seats. Using a theatre-style setup, rear seat passengers sit higher and more inward. Legroom is adequate and headroom is not an issue. While having the rear passengers closer together may aid conversation with those in the front, shoulder room could be a problem and there is no centre folding armrest. The rear cargo area has a moveable floor to provide a flat loading surface or maximum capacity. Even at max capacity, the CX-3 only has 16 cubic feet behind the rear seats — even less in the GT model with its additional subwoofer.With the rear seats folded, capacity goes up to 54 cubic feet. What makes the CX-3 stand out from its rivals is its available features. Few others in this price range offer blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, and forward crash detection, although that’s changing rapidly. Radio and navigation duties are handled by the touchscreen and central knob.This system is also in the Mazda3 and Mazda6, but it may take some time to get used to for newcomers because it’s a bit awkward to use. The CX-3 also boasts a head up display — it projects important information onto a small piece of glass that sits on the dash, above the gauge cluster. It is useful, but it would be nicer if it projected onto the windshield to help keep the driver’s eyes on the road.

Features Prices start at $20,695 for the GX, $24,195 for the GS, and $28,995 for the GT. Standard equipment includes keyless entry, push-button start, rearview camera, air conditioning, and steering wheel mounted cruise control. Additional features, available as options or on higher trims, include leather upholstery, heated front seats, automatic climate control, power moonroof, voice-activated navigation, automatic headlights, and rain-sensing wipers. Fuel efficiency numbers (litres/100 kilometres) for FWD models are 8.2 city and 6.7 highway. AWD models return 8.8 city and 7.3 highway. Thumbs up The CX-3 has sharp styling and is fun to drive. The quality of the interior makes it feel more upscale. Thumbs down While the base engine is good it would be nice to have another option. Also, the noise that enters the cabin could become tiresome on long trips. The bottom line The Mazda CX-3 is ideal for small families looking for

a usable, stylish and fun-todrive car. Competitors Honda HR-V Slotting between the Fit hatchback and CR-V, the brand-new HR-V blends the best of each together. It has the taller profile and available AWD of the CR-V, yet is still nimble enough to navigate the narrowest city streets. The HR-V will arrive in dealerships in July and prices will start at $20,690. Chevrolet Trax The Chevy Trax has big-car looks in a small-car package.The Trax has the same presence and peace of mind of OnStar — now available with 4G LTE with Wi-Fi — as its bigger siblings. The Trax is available in four trim levels with prices starting at $20,880. Jeep Renegade The Jeep Renegade is one of the most affordable in this segment. However, that doesn’t mean it’s lacking as it is also the most off-road capable, making it a true Jeep. Starting prices range from $19,995 to $32,295 and the Renegade is available in four trim levels. editor@automotivepress.com
