I deeply regret this reference, which was made in the heat of the moment. It was a very bad mistake. I offer a heartfelt and profound apology to any and

When forced by the mayor to retract the statement at Monday’s meeting, Clark said it had “no religious overtones.” While blatant anti-Semitism islesswidespreadtoday,incidents like the one at city council are See Education page 5

Having trimmed administrative expenses, in part by failing to fill vacant positions at the school, Capilano’s budget woes have been exacerbated by inflation and the costs of becoming a university, according to a release on the institution’s website. “Times are difficult, but I don’t believe that the institution has exhausted all efforts,” Davison said. “There are system efficiencies that are being looked at that have yet to take effect.”

University public affairs manager Jane MacCarthy. About eight per cent of Capilano’s course offerings will likely be impacted. Capilano is moving faster than necessary to approve their budget, according to Davison. “We have these discussions this time of year, but often the budgets aren’t finalized until late May or June. Having a decision now in the context of an election campaign where you’re trying to talk to somebody over in Victoria or have them help you out, the timing is just bad.”

Capilano University is currently facing a $1.3 million budget shortfall, forcing the school to cut programs that don’t fit with the university model, according to provost Bill Gibson. Textile arts, medical office assistant, commerce, and applied business technology courses all face uncertain futures. The school’s budget was slated to become official following a board meeting on May 14, which is also election day, but the Federation of PostSecondary Educators is planning to request an injunction in B.C. Supreme Court to delay budget approval until June. “There’s nobody over in Victoria making decisions at this point,” said George Davison, secretary treasurer for FPSE. “A new government, whether it’s Liberal or NDP, will have a second look at this and have more time to deal with it.” The budget cuts will cause irreparable harm to the education plans of Capilano students, according to the FPSE, who plan to file their request Friday. The budget also failed to win approval from the Capilano University senate. The 30member advisory committee voted against approving the budget on Tuesday. The senate also favoured delaying program cuts for one year. Approximately 400 first-year students will be affected by the cuts, according to Capilano

Park Royal seeks condo highrises

19- and 24-storey towers planned for south mall’s White Spot site Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

PARK Royal is aiming to be less of a mall and more of a neighbourhood. The mall’s management announced plans April 30 to add residential towers to the mix, along with a host of new stores and a refurbishment of the north mall. “The vision is creating, as many shopping centres are doing today, a move from being a single-purpose delivery of goods and services . . . to becoming a much more inclusive neighbourhood. That neighbourhood would include, obviously, residential as a componentofthedeliverables,” said Rick Amantea, Park Royal vice-president. If approved by the District of West Vancouver, Park Royal will build two towers, 24 and 19 storeys in height, holding 289 units of housing at 752 Marine Drive, the location of White Spot today. The company is also aiming to include a new movie theatre, storefronts and more

restaurants in the commercial podium in the project West Vancouver’s official community plan foresees Park Royal as a commercial centre, so the land will have to go through an OCP amendment and rezoning public process. In exchange for the lucrative upzoning, Park Royal is going to have come up with some perks to offer the community. “Obviously we don’t want to put the cart before the horse. The community needs to have lots of input in that community amenity package and what uses might be there,” Amantea said, though childcare space, a pubic commons area, as well as bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure are likely candidates, he added. Reaction to the plan has been “mostly positive” Amantea said but, not surprisingly, the worry about increased traffic in the already bottlenecked chokepoint was the top concern. “I can tell you in absolute honesty, nobody is more concerned about traffic than we are and anything and everything we do, we need to rationalize ourselves internally

PARK Royal Presentation Centre ambassadors Birgitta Redcliffe and Gilly Tupling examine a model that incorporates proposed changes to the south mall. Scan with Layar for more design graphics. South is crowning its recent refurbishment by announcing heaps of new businesses including: J. Crew, Loft, Anthropologie, Aritzia, Lush, Sephora, Trattoria, Wear Else, White Spot, Zara and Five Guys Burgers and Fries, all of which are expected to be open by late fall. Park Royal North is scheduled for a similar facelift, including new covered

walkways that link both sides of the complex, and “remerchandising” in 2014. “We are a long-term player here in the community. We continue to look at anything and everything we’re doing not in a short-term perspective but in a longer-term perspective and where the community needs and wants to be in the next 10, 20 and 30 years,” Amantea said.

TransLink task huge for winning party

Advanced polls open till Saturday

Future transit growth unfunded, governance a mess: Walton Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

NO matter which party seizes the legislature on May 14, its MLAs are going to be greeted with the gargantuan task of reforming TransLink.

The public utility’s governance model operates to thesatisfactionofnoone,andthe body has no long-term funding strategy, according to District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton, chairman of TransLink’s mayors’ council. Decisions about service and infrastructure projects are made by the appointed TransLink board, mostly behind closed doors and without meaningful consultation with the mayors’ council, Walton said. The council commissioned a study into other transit systems around the world and concluded that TransLink is “unique and not in a good way,” Walton said. The mayors’ council used to hold the reins of the organization, but the province

reworked the body and gave the decision-making power to an appointed board of experts five years ago, leaving the mayors blindsided. Returning to the old model may not be realistic because of the tremendous amount of work sorting through details might be too much for already busy mayors to be do the job properly, Walton said. Then there’s the matter of funding the behemoth. “The demand on the system is growing but there’s only enough money to continue the level of service it’s at right now,” Walton said. The only method for municipalities to fund transit is through property taxes but the mayors’ council recently put forward a list of alternative

first. We need to be sure that the changes we are making do not, in any way, shape or form, significantly impact in a negative way, traffic in and around Park Royal,” he said. Amantea is hoping to attract a mix of seniors looking to downsize into a smaller, cheaper home as well as young people looking to get established in the housing market. Ultimately the market

ways TransLink could raise money including: road and bridge tolling, vehicle levies, or a regional sales tax. Premier Christy Clark announced two weeks ago that the long-term funding model would be decided by voters in a referendum to be held in 2014, which left the mayors’ council baffled, Walton said. “I don’t see the current government having a serious collaborativeapproachtosolving the problem in the region. It’s quite disappointing actually,” he said. “The Liberals have not indicated any significant policy positions that I’ve heard of during the election.” But, lest he be painted as a secret New Democrat partisan, Walton said that party’s suggestions of using the carbon tax to fund transit also lacks detail. “I think most of us are just looking for good policy. At this point, I’ve not heard any detail on any NDP platform that leads me to believe they’ve done further thinking either. Whichever government’s elected, we’re starting from square one.” Candidates vying for the North Vancouver-Seymour seat can all agree that change is needed, especially in the

will decide what price the one- and two-bedroom units will sell for but the developer is expecting the smaller 650square foot units to start at around $600,000. If all goes well, Amantea is hoping to have the rezoning in place by the end of 2013 with detailed designs and permits in place for a late 2014 construction start. Meanwhile, Park Royal

servicing that the riding gets, but just how things should change and who should pay is a matter of debate. For B.C. Conservative Brian Wilson, getting rid of the “mucky-mucks making big bucks” at the top is the first step. As for how TransLink can become financially viable, Wilson said he would like to see a higher portion of operating costs covered by riders before going after homeowners or car drivers. “People driving cars and people living in their homes shouldn’t be subsidizing somebody else’s transportation. That’s the way I feel,” he said. Jane Thornthwaite, B.C. Liberal incumbent, said she doesn’t necessarily agree with her party leader’s plan for a referendum on funding, but said there should be more options outside higher property taxes. “Property tax is not very popular, obviously, on the North Shore considering our properties are very high value,” she said. Thornthwaite said she would like to see a hybrid decisionmaking model that involves the existing board, the province and the mayors. NDP challenger Jim Hanson

could not offer a method to retool the governance model but said increases in service should be funded from the carbon tax. “I think the carbon trust should be eliminated and the carbon tax should be directed to green initiatives, such as TransLink and public transit so people are able to get around and we have a more livable community, and secondly so we can reduce out greenhouse gas emissions,” he said. After first going after serious cost savings in TransLink’s operation, the strategy ought to be to increase revenues by increasing ridership, said independent Jaime Webbe. “I’m not supportive of road taxes or car taxes. I don’t like the idea of taxing cars to pay for transit. I think there does need to be better attention to the fare system,” she said. “I think the current fare system we have is not encouraging ridership on the shorter routes and more could be done to adjust the fare system to increase revenues that way.” The governance system for TransLink should be “more participatory,” involving not only the mayors but also the users, the bus drivers who see the system on the frontlines, said Webbe.

Education over confrontation: B’nai Brith From page 1 still sadly common, according to Sam Eskenasi, commutations officer for B’nai Brith Canada. “A lot of people use terms like that. They don’t necessarily know where it comes from or why it means what it does,” Eskenasi said. B’nai Brith regularly responds to incidents of bigotry targeting Jews, but in cases like Clark’s the organization prefers education over confrontation. “We can take him at face value. We don’t need to argue with that if he’s being sincere in his apology. But we’d definitely want to meet with him and fill him in on why this is offensive not just to Jews but to other people,” Eskenasi said. “Most of it is not coming from people’s desire to be offensive. They’re just trying to make a point and they don’t realize the word they’re using are a very, very poor choice.”

Students consider class action suit From page 1 The cuts have also been criticized by the university’s co-ordinator for community development and outreach, Debby Vollbrecht, who penned a letter addressing her concerns to the Capilano board of governors. “When we changed from being a community college to being a university, the board and senior administration communicated to our communities that being a teaching university would not be a zero sum game, with new programs added at the expense of others,” she wrote. The university may be using the budget cuts to re-shape the university, according to Vollbrecht, who highlighted cuts to adult education courses, the First Nations Journeys program, and courses for adults with disabilities. “We ask that you slow the process down so that we can work together to meet our enduring commitments to our communities,” she wrote. The actions of Capilano University’s board of governors is slightly puzzling, according to Davison. “I don’t know what they’re trying to do, make a case to the government that they’re underfunded? Every institution is under-funded. The idea though is to minimize the impact on front-line services, on what affects faculty and students, and that doesn’t seem to be the case here,” he said. A class action lawsuit involving students is also a possibility, according to Davison, who said several students have signed affidavits. “This isn’t just for the benefit of faculty, students are going to be impacted by this for years if these decisions are made,” he said.

West Vancouver police nab Sea to Sky speeders Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THEY were fast and now they’re furious.

West Vancouver police impounded eight souped-up import vehicles late Friday night after the group was spotted cruising at 140 kilometres per hour on Sea to Sky Highway and Highway 1. A witness called Squamish RCMP to report the speed demons near Furry Creek around 11:30 p.m., but they were too far from local units. “As luck would have it, Air 1 (Lower Mainland traffic safety

helicopter) was up and our patrol team guys got up on the highway while Air 1 was monitoring,” said Const. Jeff Palmer, West Vancouver Police Department spokesman. West Vancouver police issued excessive speed violation tickets to all eight drivers and impounded their whips for seven days. Five of the vehicles are Nissan 240SX models ranging from 1989 to 1997 model years. Police also impounded a 1989 Nissan Skyline, a 1992 Toyota MKII and a 2000 Acura Integra. All vehicles appeared to be fitted with varying stages of highperformance modifications. Scan this page for Air 1 video footage.

In the dark . . . ages E

MPIRICAL evidence took another blow to the face this week, just as the bruise from the last one is starting to show. On Monday, the federal government announced that the National Research Council would no longer fund research into “pure science,” and instead will only focus on research with immediate applications for industry. But today’s pure science is tomorrow’s life-changing technology. Facing critical questions from the British minister of finance on the value of his research into electricity and magnetism in 1850, a physicist replied, “Sir, one day you will tax this.” On Wednesday, Statistics Canada released the results of its National Household Survey — the first since the Conservatives abolished the mandatory long-form census.

Instead of having a 94 per cent-plus response rate, it was closer to 69 per cent. That makes the data more skewed and less reliable to the point of being arguably useless — and we really need every bit of solid information we can get when making policy. Do we really want to be 25 per cent less sure when deciding how to spend millions of dollars? Funding scientific research should be for the benefit of humanity, not just industry. And we ignore or obscure the reliable evidence around us at our own peril. This Dark Ages approach to knowing and understanding the world around us is going to leave a lasting stain. Even if a future government reverses these absurd decisions, we are still falling behind on precious time and data.

Christy Clark will win – you read it here first

MULTIPLE sparkling, titillating items battling for top spot:

Gordon Wilson is a fascinating British Columbia study, a shrewd maverick whose feet stepped into a cow-pie or two — most visibly a marital one — but whose head arguably contains the sharpest political smarts of any practitioner hereabouts of our times. So when Wilson announced 10 days before an election, “It’s been 20 years since I called myself a Liberal, but it’s time to come home” — listen very carefully, and read the amazing shrinking numbers for New Democratic Party leader Adrian Dix, all but anointed premier by the punditry long months ago. On Bill Good’s CKNW show, a few days before his return to the Liberal fold, Wilson sliced Dix fine on meaty points that Premier Christy Clark’s handlers have failed to exploit. Notably, the “backdated memo” meant to protect Dix’s then-boss and premier, Glen

This Just In

Trevor Lautens Clark. Wrong, Wilson asserts. He defined it as a fraudulently altered official document, which sounds much more Criminal Code-ish. Dix, who long ago openly acknowledged his mistake, recently undermined his apology by the defence that he was “only 35” at the time. A beardless youth? (I’m too kind to describe Dix’s switch on the Kinder Morgan proposal between April 11 and 23 as “Guaranteed principles: Best Before Date 11 days.”) Wilson also noted that the Liberal deficit budgets that bubbled under devout black-ink

worshipper Gordon Campbell simply mirrored similar global humiliations during the 2008’10 depression. Maybe Liberal strategists decided that pointing this out would sound like whining, vulnerable to jeering from the cheap seats — especially if elections are no time to debate the economy, as another Campbell, the brainy Kim, declared in her disastrous 1993 federal campaign and was mocked for. (No wonder politicians speak in stale, cautious platitudes. Ralph Sultan stated that single motherhood partly explained poverty. True! But the mad leftist correct-speak police jumped on this statistical and obvious fact.) Wilson retired from politics but remains a favourite media go-to analyst. He can only help the bouncy Christy Clark, who — as I’ve repeatedly predicted — will astonish multitudes by winning the election. If I’m wrong: It’ll be far, far closer than the wise imagined just two or three weeks ago. “We all knew the race would tighten up,” one of the sages is

declaring as I write this. Yeah, right. ••• I made an executive decision not to assess or recommend North Shore candidates in this election. I attended allcandidates meetings for West Vancouver-Capilano and Sea to Sky ridings, but decided to comment only if I perceived any real duds or terminal blunders. There weren’t. This paper’s reporters commendably covered the meetings. ••• They can’t win, so treading where others fear to tread is easier for Jane Sterk of the Greens and Conservative John Cummins. Both have conducted themselves well. Especially, strong praise here for Cummins’s condemnation of a threat by the Wet’suwet’en First Nation to shut down a mine in northwestern B.C. by using road blockades or by knocking down hydro lines. Cummins urged Clark and Dix to show leadership by joining him in his condemnation. Fat chance. ••• Amazing timing, one

among many: Liberal Mary Polak’s homosexual campaign manager, Todd Hauptman, suddenly discovers a “hateful attitude” toward gays by Langley citizens and quits a week before the election, inflicting maximum damage on a hurt and mystified friend. ••• The stupidest election nonissue to date is Christy Clark’s stop-and-go drive through a red light one morning around 5:15 a.m. — egged on by her son and dutifully recorded by (excellent) Vancouver Sun reporter Jonathan Fowlie. Any West Vancouverite driving to the ferry at that time of morning, who sits and seethes at red lights on the deserted streets, will empathize. Or do likewise. I have, once or twice, and I’m the squarest rulefollower in the Western world. ••• Mayor Michael Smith was displeased, and he isn’t known for hiding his displeasure, by my April 26 piece slamming the proposed commercialization of the Ambleside waterfront strip between 13th and 18th. “Unfortunately the staff

report on this was somewhat misleading and as such was rejected by all of council,” Smith wrote me. Fallout possible? ••• Former mayor Pamela Goldsmith-Jones was spotted a while ago wearing a hard hat at Park Royal — working as a consultant. When contacted, Park Royal executive Rick Amantea said her firm, PGJ Consulting Inc., was hired for six or seven months “to help us look at and create a new neighbourhood vision . . . identifying community needs, providing input on the design of our future public grounds and social amenities and sustainability, all sorts of things.” The contract ended about three months ago. First as councillor and then two-term mayor, retiring undefeated in December 2011, Goldsmith-Jones obviously took part in decisions affecting Park Royal interests. You all right with that?

Key races include NV-Lonsdale

THERE are 85 ridings being fought over in this election campaign, and trying to keep track of even half of them can be a daunting task for anyone not a political operative or a journalist assigned to election night duties.

But in a close race that separates the top two parties by three percentage points or less — in other words, the usual B.C. election result —, it’s safe to say that about 60 of those ridings are locks for either the B.C. Liberals or the NDP. The rest of them, in a close result, are in play in terms of the chances of them being won by either party. Some tilt towards one party more than the other, and some are potential three-way races involving third party or independent candidates. Of course, if the NDP hangs on to its lead in the polls and wins by five or six percentage points, the B.C. Liberals will be lucky to hang onto 20 of their existing seats. But history suggests elections in this province are usually much closer than that — and therefore more interesting to anticipate! There’s not enough space in this column to look at all the potentially key races, but there are a number of them in Metro Vancouver that may signal which party is headed for

victory — and by how many seats — when all the votes are tallied. They are all currently held by the B.C. Liberals, and if they slip into the NDP’s hands it will indicate it’s all over for the ruling party. But if the B.C. Liberals can hold them, they may not be dead yet. Vancouver-Point Grey: this is ground zero of the election for both the B.C. Liberals and the NDP. Both parties are desperate to win here. More than one senior person from either party has told me if they don’t this seat, they don’t win the election. Christy Clark barely won this seat in the byelection — she won by 500 votes, compared to Gordon Campbell’s 2,300 winning margin in 2009 — at the height of her personal popularity and she’s less popular now. Her chief opponent is David Eby of the NDP, but the B.C.

Conservatives are running a credible candidate in Duane Nickull, and he will likely drain votes from Clark. Vancouver-Fairview: a classic “swing” riding that has gone back and forth between the two parties over time. The B.C. Liberals won by a little more than 1,000 votes last time and the NDP is running environmentalist George Heyman against incumbent Margaret MacDiarmid. Heyman is a former BCGEU president, and he’ll no doubt have a vast army of union volunteers working for him on election day. But the fact there is no B.C. Conservative candidate should work in MacDiarmid’s favour. Burnaby North: for some reason, low-profile Richard Lee of the B.C. Liberals keeps winning here, albeit by smaller margins: just 258 votes in 2009. The NDP’s Janet Routledge is his chief opponent, and the NDP has

almost got this marked in their win column. Surrey-Tynehead: longtime B.C. Liberal MLA Dave Hayer isn’t running, leaving this one wide open. Two Indo-Canadian newcomers: Avtar Bains for of the NDP and Amrik Virk of the B.C. Liberals are squaring off, but given that Hayer only won by fewer than 1,600 votes and that a Conservative candidate is running, the NDP has to like its chances for victory much better than before. Maple Ridge-Mission/ Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows: is there a community in B.C. more polarized than Maple Ridge? For years, elections in the region have gone down right to the wire on election night. Last time, the NDP won MR-PM by 274 votes, while the B.C. Liberals won MR-M by a mere 68 votes. If either riding is at all close, it may be a sign the B.C. Liberals may be more popular than they now

appear to be. North VancouverLonsdale: on paper, this would seem like a fairly safe B.C. Liberal riding. Naomi Yamamoto won by 2,500 votes last time, but the NDP has won here before and long time city councillor Craig Keating is running for the NDP. So, in a close race, the path to victory would seem to begin on the west side of Vancouver, take a brief detour to North Vancouver and head through Burnaby and down to Surrey. We’ll see which party can stick to that path with the most success. Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

THE District of North Vancouver is in good financial shape, according to its 2012 audited financial statements.

The 2012 revenues, expenditures and transfers, overseen by the district’s audit committee as well as an outside consulting firm, came up for discussion at an April 29 council meeting. “They show the district to be in a healthy financial position. Fixed assets of half a billion dollars. . . . We’ve almost reached a position where we’re putting enough money into capital allocations each year to replenish our fixed asset position. I think that is a really important status,” said Coun Robin Hicks, who is also an audit committee member. “The reserves and investments are significantly healthy as well.” The district is passing a 2.5-per cent tax increase in 2013, including a one-per cent bump for infrastructure projects. But the sound news belied a troubling trend in numbers put forward by Coun. Alan Nixon. After acknowledging that changes in accounting practices make direct comparisons almost impossible, Nixon noted the ballooning budgets, tax collection, employee expenditures and infrastructure spending the district has seen in the 11 years since he was elected. Compared to a 17.8-per cent jump in the Vancouver consumer price index since 2002, the total 2012 expenses for the district of $145.7 million rose 47 per cent. The amount the district collected in property taxes rose by a similar percentage. At $7.28 million, spending on recreation services was up 48 per cent and the number of employees making more than $100,000 went from eight in 2002 to 62 in 2011. Nixon then posed a number of rhetorical questions, encouraging council to evaluate whether the municipality was on the right track.

“Is my quality of life as a resident in the district 52 per cent better than it was in 2002?” he asked. “Are district residents 48 per cent healthier in 2012 than they were in 2002 as a result of that increased investment in recreation services?” The point in “boring council with numbers” was to show that the district’s taxing and spending was on an unsustainable trajectory that would have to be reined in. “Over the coming years we are going to have to make some really tough decisions about how to dramatically control expenditures while maintaining a semblance of the quality of life we have come to cherish here in the district,” he said. The sentiment of fiscal prudence behind Nixon’s comments was echoed by others on council, but the methodology didn’t hold up without context, most argued. Things not captured in the limited data available included things outside the district’s control,likeCanadianUnionofPublicEmployees salaries negotiated by Metro Vancouver, the rising cost of the RCMP contract and increased downloading of services that should be under provincial or federal jurisdiction. On the revenue side, the data didn’t show how new development added to the district offsets the tax burden on the existing population or new sources of non-tax revenue. Taking those things into account, the district is actually quite competitive with its Lower Mainland neighbours, Mayor Richard Walton said. The district has also forgone lots of revenuegenerating activities that would fill the coffers because that’s what council believed the community wanted, Coun. Mike Little said, including casinos, outdoor billboard advertising and the sale of land for development. For Coun. Lisa Muri, the trend in numbers was a sign of too much government for too few people who live on North Shore, leading to a call for consolidation of municipalities. “We have 28 councillors on the North Shore. We have five mayors. Our population is just under 200,000 we need to continue to have a conversation around consolidating our communities so our children are not going to be put in a position that Coun. Nixon and some of us foresee in the future,” she said.

Expropriate sewage plant site

Dear Editor: Thank you to District of North Vancouver’s Coun. Alan Nixon and City of North Vancouver’s Coun. Guy Heywood for your educational letter regarding the proposed relocation of the primary waste treatment facility (North Shore News, May 1). The analysis by both councillors of the relocation alternative for the facility from its present location on Squamish land, under the Lions Gate Bridge, is excellent. Indeed both the federal government and Metro Vancouver government have shared responsibility in the matter. The confusion regarding the responsibility of Metro Vancouver for funding the relocation alternative creates further awareness of the need for an immediate discussion of municipal amalgamation across the Lower Mainland. It is interesting that an initiative as important as this waste facility is not discussed in either the Metro Vancouver strategy document or in the District of North Vancouver and City of North Vancouver’s official community plans. The absence of that discussion highlights a gap in the planning process among identification and matching of infrastructure needs with redevelopment. Redevelopment is generally a primary source of funding for infrastructure upgrades. The option of relocation of the facility is pegged at $500

million. My independent analysis indicates a less expensive option may be considered. I suggest that expropriation of the lands the existing facility sits on be considered. Expropriation, under the First Nations Land Management Act, is a viable economic option. Upgrades to the facility can then be funded under a public-private partnership model promoted by Nixon and Heywood. That model might include levies on the redevelopment proposed on the North Shore over the next 20 years. This option is modest, and certainly not a marquee project. Yet it is a responsible option. This option would have a net cost of less than $50 million to taxpayers, after the Pemberton Avenue lands acquired for relocation are disposed. Funding could start immediately and spread out the impact to taxpayers in such a way to have only a one- to two-per-cent impact on annual property taxes. Prudent management of municipal infrastructure is best achieved by a broad, integrated municipal plan tied to local official community plans, where the less costly options are funded by stakeholders including residents, and all levels of government. Hazen Colbert North Vancouver (Editor’s note: A letter from both North Vancouver mayors on this topic will run in Sunday’s paper.)

Self-serving Stephenson no Green party member Dear Editor: You published a letter May 8 to the editor from Jim Stephenson (Green Vote a Dilemma for Some). In it, he claimed to be a “green person,” and endorsed Craig Keating as “environmentally enlightened.” I’m sure people in Moodyville who have traded views of eagle’s nests for a massive coal pile under his watch agree! Some of Keating’s supporters are actually supporting him to get him off of council for this very reason. Stephenson was a one-time candidate in West Vancouver Seato-Sky, and has not been a member of the Green Party of British Columbia for some time. Andrew Weaver, who in his letter he claims to support, had this to say of him, “I have no idea who Jim Stephenson is.” Stephenson is just doing what he does best, looking out for the political interests of Jim Stephenson. The NDP is desperate for votes, because they have run an incredibly ineffective campaign provincially, they have not told people what they are going to do if elected, and they are aggressively targeting Green supporters. Ryan Conroy, Green Party candidate North Vancouver-Lonsdale

Clark’s racist comment shocking Dear Editor: It is shocking that city councillor Rod Clark could use a racist slur in public and call it common practice in this day and age!

INQUIRING REPORTER DESPITE a referendum on the ballot, only 55 per cent of eligible voters headed to the polls in 2009. Participation in provincial elections has been on a downward slide since 1983, when more than 77 per cent of British Columbians made their mark. With four parties offering different policies on key economic and environmental issues, are you angry, hopeful, or desperate enough to vote this year, or do you have something better to do? Find us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us what you think. — Jeremy Shepherd

Claudette Blake North Vancouver “Yes. Provincially, I’ve always wanted the NDP. They say Adrian Dix had some problems. I think he deserves to have a chance, and I am definitely going to make sure that I am there to vote.”

Sheridan Blake North Vancouver “Yes, I’m tired of the Liberals.”

Are you more engaged in this election than you were last time?

Chance McCullough North Vancouver “No, I’m pretty much interested in all elections. I just hope the NDP gets in and represents unionized workers.”

Winter Club locks out CUPE Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

After rejecting a contract offer from their employer, 16 North Shore Winter Club employees have been locked out from the club. Members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 389 who maintain the ice and club building voted 11-2 to reject the contract offer on April 27. The other three members did not show up for the vote. The employees stayed on the job until being locked out Friday. They are now picketing and calling on club members to stay off the rink for their own safety. “With the pool, we’re talking about chlorine. We’ve got refrigeration equipment on the curling rink and ice rink. We’re talking about ammonia and things, and it can have some pretty significant consequences if there’s an accident,” said John Strohmaier, CUPE national representative.

The employees have been without a contract since June of 2012. At issue in the labour dispute is the scheduling of shifts and a change in the employees’ benefits. The club would like to change the hours of work from the existing four 10-hour shifts, which allows the employees to have additional part-time jobs, to five eight-hours shifts, Strohmaier said. The club’s management is also pushing to create one universal benefits package for the entire staff of 55. Non-union employees’ benefits packages are about 20 per cent smaller than the union ones, Strohmaier said. The club and its services will remain open during the dispute according to David Long, general manager of the club. Management will take over the ice equipment and maintenance in the meantime, which Long told the North Shore News would be safe. “I’ll leave that up to the B.C. Safety Authority to answer that question. I wouldn’t be going through this process if I didn’t feel it was possible,” he said.

Election changes for Tsleil-Waututh Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

THE Tsleil-Waututh Nation in North Vancouver has a new chief and a new, larger council following a band election April 2. Maureen Thomas is the new chief of the First Nation, winning her position with 111 votes over her closest challenger, Carleen Thomas, who garnered 66 votes. Maureen Thomas is no stranger to the chief’s position. She previously led the nation as chief from 2003 to 2004 and was on the most recent council. Justin George, who was the previous chief of the Tsleil-Waututh, did not run in the election. George said it was a great honour to serve his

community. But after four years as chief and eight years on council, in addition to having a young family, George said he needed to step back. A crowded field of 19 candidates put their names forward for band council. Of those, the five elected were Jen Thomas, Liana Martin, Travis George, Charlene Aleck and Deanna George. Martin and Jen Thomas both served on the previous council. This council is also bigger than the previous council. Election rules that govern the TsleilWaututh stipulate there should be one council position for every 100 band members. Since the last election, the nation’s population has edged up over 500, so an additional council position was created. Two hundred people cast ballots in the election. The council sits for a two-year term, which will end March 31, 2015.

PROGRESSIVE VOTERS SUPPORT CRAIG KEATING Friends, We are progressive voters in the constituency of North Vancouver, and we ask these two key questions: Which of the progressive candidates will have the most impact on BC’s environment and economy? Which one has the greatest electability? It is clear to us which candidate we support. We encourage you to join us in voting for Craig Keating on May 14.

Ask just about anyone what their favourite Disney movie is and they’ll have a hard time narrowing it down (even if the correct answer is Alladin. Or The Lion King. Maybe Toy Story . . . it’s impossible). But if someone pulled an animator by the ear and forced them to answer what was better than working at Disney, it would have to be working at Disney — and winning an Oscar at the same time. This surreal experience is one two former Capilano University graduates are living through right now, having both been a part of Disney’s

DREAMGIRLS PAGE 18

Academy Award-winning animated short film Paperman, as seen before the showings of Disney’s animated feature film Wreck-It Ralph, released in November, 2012. The short also accompanies the new DVD release of Wreck-It Ralph as a bonus feature. Sarah Airriess, graduate of Capilano University’s Commercial Animation program in 2002, worked as a final line supervisor on Paperman, establishing the drawn look for the characters and making sure the other final line artists didn’t stray from the style they were shooting for. When asked to describe the feeling she had working on an Academy Award-winning film, Airriess had trouble coming up with an answer, as her work was officially over on the project more than a year ago. But she gave it her best go. “Kind of surreal . . .the short itself feels so long in the past now (I finished on it just over a year ago) that I feel a little detached, personally,” she said in an email interview from Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, Calif. “But

suddenly, after the Oscars, people I hadn’t heard from in ages sent me congratulations after recognizing my name in the credits.” Clio Chiang, also a graduate of Capilano University’s Commercial Animation program in 2005, worked as a story artist on Paperman where she constructed camera angles and composition of each shot, made sure the storytelling was clear and created a “blueprint” of sorts for the film. “I feel incredibly proud of our director, John Kahrs,” Chiang says. “Sometimes it’s difficult to realize a personal story in a large corporation such as Disney, but after being put through the story wringer he managed to stick to his original vision for the short. I also feel a lot of pride in it having been such a small group, like a sort of guerrilla project.” Having been professional artists since their respective graduations, both Airriess and Chiang worked in smaller studios around Vancouver before See Animators page 36

Dreamgirls’ divas supremely musical Show biz tale based on the rise of Motown girl group superstars

■ Dreamgirls, May 9-July 7 at the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, 2750 Granville St., Vancouver. Tickets: $29-$70 at artsclub. com or 604-687-1644.

Christine Lyon clyon@nsnews.com

SHE doesn’t demand rose petals in her toilet bowl or roomtemperature bottled water in her boudoir, nor does she throw public temper tantrums at the slightest provocation, but Aurianna Angelique has still been called a diva.

It’s a word that carries negative connotations, thanks to the tabloid-hyped behavior of certain high-maintenance stars, but Angelique wears the label with pride. A diva is, after all, a strong, glamorous woman with talent to spare.

“My personality is bigger than life,” says the 28-yearold singer. “I just carry myself and I know what I’m good at — and I do try to stay humble.” Confidence and charisma are two attributes Angelique shares with Effie Melody White, the character she portrays in the Arts Club Theatre Company production of Dreamgirls, which runs until July 7 at the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage in Vancouver. “It’s weird, when I first found out I got the role I thought it would be a challenge because I don’t see myself being like Effie,” she says, describing her character as headstrong and confrontational. “It’s kind of been a realization, through the process, that we do have similar characteristics.” With book and lyrics by Tom Eyen and music by Henry Krieger, Dreamgirls premiered on Broadway in 1981. The Arts Club production is

directed by the company’s artistic managing director Bill Millerd, a West Vancouver native. Set in the 1960s, the Motown musical is loosely based on the story of The Supremes. It follows one girl group’s rise to fame, and their internal feuds along the way. Effie, famously played by Jennifer Holliday in the Broadway production, represents Florence Ballard. The original lead singer of The Dreamettes, Effie unquestionably has the strongest voice of the trio. But, when the group reinvents itself as The Dreams, Effie is replaced as by backup singer Deena Jones (based on Diana Ross), whose softer voice and slimmer figure are deemed more suitable for the spotlight. American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Effie in the 2006 film adaptation of Dreamgirls, which repopularized the showstopping number “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.” See Singer page 19

Singer grew up idolizing R&B stars

From page 18 Angelique says she has always dreamed of landing this part. “The songs are great that she sings and she also just represents a powerful woman. She goes through struggles that a lot of women can relate to and then she comes up strong.” Though the story takes place 50 years ago, the theme of looks trumping talent is entirely relevant in today’s music industry, Angelique says. “It’s becoming less and less about the voice and more about the entire package, which is unfortunate,” she says. “There hasn’t been, for me, a really strong diva singer in a long time because of that reason.” Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Calif., Angelique grew up idolizing Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Patti LaBelle. She started singing in church at the age of four, joined a community gospel choir, and participated in local talent shows.

DAREN Herbert stars in the Dreamgirls production. “Anywhere I could get a microphone and sing, I was definitely on it.” When she performed in her first musical, Once on This Island by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, it marked a turning point. “I played a small girl. And I knew from the moment I hit that stage. I remember coming off stage telling my mother this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life,” she says. “It was kind of that first show that broke me in.” After graduating from a performing arts high school, Angelique moved across the country to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. “And I’ve been singing and blessed to be working ever

since.” She recently relocated to Toronto, where she performed in the Motown revue Love Train. Dreamgirls marks her Vancouver debut. While the show chronicles the rise of one musical group, it also speaks to the broader political and cultural history of the 1960s. Motown music was in its heyday and bands were releasing melodic, danceable “crossover” hits designed to appeal to both black and white markets. The melding of soul and pop changed the course of American musical history. “It’s untouchable,” Angelique says of Motown. “I think the music speaks for itself. It’s really good music and I think that everyone can relate to it in their own way.”

SHANE KOYCZAN SPEAKS HIS MIND

Poet prefers to take a positive approach

■ Shane Koyczan, Kay Meek Centre, Saturday, May 11 at 8 p.m.

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

SHANE Koyczan has become an industry. The West Coast writer who rose to fame when his patriotic ode to Canada We Are More was featured in the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics has become something unique: the poet as entrepreneur. He has newsletters, YouTube videos, and a band. T-shirts inspired by his poetry retail for $25 on his website. Koyczan blended his words with the music of the folk group the Short Story Long for the album Remembrance Year, which is available for digital download for $9.99, also on his website. Poetry-

lovers can purchase an audio recording of Koyczan reciting his poem of the month for 99 cents. “This isn’t the kind of job with like, job security or anything like that. If you’re going to do it you really have to bite the bullet and say ‘I’m going to do this.’ I remember quitting my job and saying, ‘I’m going to give this a year and see where it takes me.’ It just kept snowballing,” Koyczan says. “I make a good living doing what I do.” During a phone interview Koyczan’s voice sounds a little deeper and his cadence slightly more abrupt than during some of his stage performances. Earlier this year Koyczan appeared shy and shaken as he strode to the microphone to recite his poem “To This Day” at TED, an idea conference. “When I was a kid I used

to think pork chops and karate chops were the same thing,” Koyczan began. That childhood misapprehension, and a few accidental bruises, led to an investigation into abuse, a hated nickname, and what is now his best-known poem. The work examines the lasting effects of bullying and name-calling with the passage: “We got called them all, so we grew up believing no one would ever fall in love with us. That we’d be lonely forever. That we’d never meet someone to make us feel like the sun was something they built for us in their tool shed.” A version of the poem replete with animation has been viewed more than eight million times on YouTube.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE

Bollywood stylist sets down roots Christine Lyon clyon@nsnews.com

A light stream of midday pedestrian traffic flows, unhurriedly, past the North Vancouver salon where Dilshad Pastakia works as a hair stylist. The storefront scene is a stark contrast to the streets outside Pastakia’s two Mumbai salons where, at times, thousands of crazed fans and paparazzi would swarm around the front doors hoping to catch a glimpse of the latest celebrity du jour. In India, Pastakia made a name for herself as a hair stylist to the Bollywood stars, best known for creating the signature ’do of film legend Shahrukh Khan. “Earlier he had all this volume at the back, and then he had this short top,” she says of Khan’s early ’90s style. “So I changed it. I kind of gave him the volume at the crown.” Eventually Pastakia started cutting Khan’s hair at his home to avoid the crowds. Last summer, she left the bustling centre of the Hindi film industry and moved to North Vancouver in search of a quieter lifestyle and a better future for her two children. Upon arrival, she walked up and down Lonsdale Avenue checking out salons and decided to rent a chair at Mira Studios on East 13th Street. Just a few months into

her new laid-back life, the province announced plans to host the Times of India Film Awards, which took place in early April. During the threeday event, Pastakia set up a studio at the Pan Pacific Hotel in downtown Vancouver and, with a team of 50 stylists, handled the hair and makeup of hundreds of musicians, dancers and presenters. She also reunited with Khan. “He was a little upset with me when he first came because I hadn’t got a chance to say bye to anyone when I left,” Pastakia says. Evidently, any hard feelings were soon forgotten. Inside BC Place, in front of 30,000 people, Khan took the stage and thanked his longtime stylist. He also attributed his tiny ponytail to having forgone haircuts in her absence. It’s not the first time Khan has let his hair grow out. When Pastakia was pregnant with her first child and restricted to bed rest, he went nine months without so much as a trim. “He just didn’t touch his hair,” she says, “I mean, that’s being loyal.” It was 20 years ago that Pastakia first laid hands on Khan’s legendary locks. His wife, a client of Pastakia’s, brought him into her salon. At the time, he was already a household name. “Of course I was nervous. My scissors must have fallen two, three times trying to make him happy,” Pastakia recalls. See Film page 32

Premier jeweller Tiffany & Co. collaborated with Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann and costume designer Catherine Martin to create the stunning collection of original, periodappropriate jewelry that Mulligan’s character Daisy Buchanan wears in the movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel of the same name. The movie premiered Wednesday in Vancouver and opens in theatres today. Tiffany’s jewels factor so prominently in this American fable of wealth and betrayal that movie-goers meet Daisy’s diamonds even before setting eyes on her face. In an early scene, a delicate hand rises from the couch where the fragile beauty is hidden from view, waves a languid greeting, and an extraordinary diamond and platinum ring glints in the summer sun. Tiffany & Co., which has been America’s house of design since 1837 and counts Fitzgerald himself among its earlier monied clients, made up to four versions of select jewelry featured in the film, says Rob Ferguson, Tiffany’s

Pictures’ drama of the same name was inspired by a Native American design in the Tiffany Archives.

These designs were offered for sale to Tiffany’s VIP clients at a series of lavish events in New York City last month. Already creating a buzz well before the movie’s premiere is the Savoy headpiece that Daisy wears in party scenes at the Gatsby mansion. Taking its inspiration from the exuberant

flapper headpieces of the 1920s, the delicate ornament sparkles with diamonds and drips with pearls. It’s offered at $200,000. Daisy’s lavish hand ornaments, multi-strand pearl bracelets with adjoining diamond and platinum rings, are $75,000 apiece. The 11carat diamond and platinum ring is offered at $1.8 million. For jewelry lovers of more modest means, Tiffany

has introduced the Ziegfeld Collection. Named for New York’s legendary Ziegfeld Theatre of the Art Deco era and based on Tiffany archival jewelry designs from the 1920s, the jewelry captures Jazz Age glamour with freshwater cultured pearls, black onyx and sterling silver. Prices start at less than $500 for cufflinks, earrings and pendants and range to more than $1,000 for long ropes of pearls.

Film stars frequented Mumbai salons From page 31 He was happy, though, and for years to come Pastakia continued to coif his day-to-day ’do and create styles for his film characters. Other Bollywood stars, directors and producers would also frequent Pastakia’s salon, where she would design different looks for different roles. “Then one of my stylists would go along to complete it, or one of the film people would be there doing the rest,” she says. Business took off quickly. “Just through word of mouth (celebrities) started coming to me and I

started doing films with them.” Over the years, she has maintained the manes of such Bollywood superstars as Preity Zinta, Rani Mukherjee, Katrina Kaif, Shahid Kapoor and Karan Johar. And during that time, she has watched the Indian film industry explode. “It’s become a lot more professional, it’s got a worldwide appeal, it’s reaching a wider market. There’s a lot more on the canvas for (actors) to do, there’s a lot more interesting roles,” she says. One of her favourite film character stylings involved lopping off the locks of actress Urmila Matondkar. “She was one of the film actresses who had always been known for this gorgeous,

long, beautiful kind of shampoo ad hair — and I had to cut it off,” Pastakia says. “And she looked fabulous.” In North Vancouver, Pastakia doesn’t expect to draw the same star-studded clientele she did in Mumbai, but she says she loves cutting hair, no matter whose head it’s on. Making people look and feel their very best gives her a great deal of job satisfaction, she says. “Women are multitasking and most of the time they’re being the mother, they’re being the girlfriend, they’re being the wife, they’re doing so many things, and then they’re doing a job. Who’s going to make them feel good?” she asks. “Me.”

Cancer journey memoir a call to action

Eve Ensler says Congo visit brought her back into ‘the body of the world’ ■ Eve Ensler will speak at the North Shore Credit Union Centre for the Performing Arts, Tuesday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, $20, which includes a copy of her new book, In the Body of the World, visit capilanou. ca/nscu/Eve-Ensler.

EVE Ensler is in full “flashback hallucination mode.” Reached Tuesday in Rochester, Minn., during a stop as part of her current North American book tour, the Tony award-winning American playwright, performer and activist was experiencing a flood of memories and emotions. “It’s so crazy to be back in the Mayo (Clinic) at this moment,” she says. Following her diagnosis with uterine cancer in 2010, the woman behind the famed Vagina Monologues and VDay, the ever-growing global

movement dedicated to ending violence against women and girls and spawned One Billion Rising, underwent extensive treatment in the Midwest locale. This week, she’s returned to what she refers to as “cancer town” in her new book, In the Body of the World. In more positive terms, Ensler has been considered cancer-free for three years. The call-toaction memoir chronicles Ensler’s cancer journey, her gratitude for her health, and her reconnection to both her body and the world, something she advocates for readers to likewise experience in order to better their own lives as well as the lives of others and humanity as a whole. “I hope people wake up you know, and I hope that wake up is really about hearing the cries of the earth, and hearing the cries of women, and hearing the cries of the economically impoverished, and hearing the cries of, we can go down the list,” she says. “I think when you come into your See City page 43

making the jump to Disney. But it could be said their paths started before that. Way, way before that. “I’m still learning, but I have been making marks on paper since I was three,” Chiang said. It wasn’t until university Chiang knew for sure animation was the kind of work she wanted to pursue. “I knew it was possible to work in the animation field but had no idea how to go about it — that is until I found out there was a good school locally, Capilano University, where I could start my education,” Chiang says. Her first job out of school was with Atomic Productions and then Studio B Productions (now DHX Media), before moving on to Disney. Airriess followed a similar path. “I’ve drawn since I was about two,” Airriess says. Yet it wasn’t until she was a teenager she knew she wanted to animate for a living.

“For some reason, it wasn’t until I was 14 that I realized ordinary people become animators, and that because I liked to draw and act I could become an animator . . . as soon as I made that connection I was set on that as my goal,” she said. Airriess found work out of the gate with Bardel Entertainment based in Vancouver. She produced 2D animation before moving to Los Angeles and eventually finding work in Burbank with Disney. But Paperman isn’t the only film these two have worked on. Both Airriess and Chiang had a hand in 2011’s Winnie the Pooh. Currently Airriess is working on a movie that will be released after Disney’s next animated feature film Frozen. Chiang just worked on Frozen as a story artist, but was mum on her next project. In the end, Airriess and Chiang are both honoured to have been a part of an

Oscar-winning film, but they are not letting it explode their egos, instead choosing to keep their heads down working on the next project. So, in the end, what is it like to work for Disney? “Some of the toughest and the most inspiring times of life,” Chiang says. “It’s complicated,” Airriess explains. It’s a great experience and she has access to all kinds of training and resources she normally wouldn’t, she said, but there has been a cultural and professional shock when it comes to living in LA and working for a massive corporation like Disney. “This isn’t to denigrate any of the lovely and amazingly talented people I work with at all — Disney is full of the nicest people you’d meet anywhere and they’re all both brilliant and humble, so it’s a pretty inspiring place to come to every day.” James Prevette, staff at Capilano University’s Digital Visual Effects department, also worked on Academy Award-winning film Life of Pi as a digital artist.

City of Joy supporting women survivors From page 35

body you are hopefully more compassionate, more connected and more activated and know that you are part of creating the story.” New York born, when asked where Ensler considers to be her home base, she replies, with a laugh, “I don’t know where my home base is. Everywhere. I live in the world.” A common place she’s found these days is the Democratic Republic of Congo in response to the countless reports of abuses against women and her interest in making positive change. It was there in Bukavu while working with people on the ground to establish City of Joy, a humanitarian project supported by V-Day that supports women survivors of sexual violence and provides leadership training opportunities, that she received her diagnosis. “Cancer, a disease of

pathologically dividing cells, burned away the walls of my separateness and landed me in my body, just as the Congo landed me in the body of the world,” she writes. Many people, at some point in their lives, are exiled from, flee or leave their bodies because it’s just too painful to be there, Ensler explains. Examples of causes include some form of trauma, abuse or humiliation. “For women, when we’re violated, when we’re beaten, when we’re raped, when we’re hurt, when we’re attacked, when we’re invaded, the body just becomes such a terrifying place and such a place of contamination,” she says. “I look back now and I feel like I’ve been away from myself, I’ve been away for so long and so much of my life I’ve been trying to find a way back into my body,” she adds. Ensler feels her disconnection followed her father’s sexual abuse and her

mother’s remoteness. She’s made various attempts at reconnection over the years, including “promiscuity, anorexia, performance art” as listed in her book. Some were momentarily successful. “Writing the Vagina Monologues was definitely a very amazing journey, certainly I had moments where I felt like I was in my body, but I didn’t live there, I just visited,” she says. “I think with cancer . . . when you have your body cut open and you have so many body parts removed and you lose your nodes and you wake up with tubes and catheters and all kinds of things coming out of you, you’re just body. I was body, I was nothing but body,” she says. Ensler’s new outlook and sensitivity proved terrifying at first, however she quickly began to reap the benefits. “Even in the worst moments of my sickness, I was connected to myself for the first

time. Then I think what that started to do was begin this conversion process, which is the only way I can describe it, where I began to be connected to everything around me in a way I just had never been. Those walls, or those barriers, were melting away and I just felt porous. It was a very amazing journey,” she says. Writing In the Body of the World proved “grueling.” “I think writing this book, it was kind of like a fever of language, or a language fever, that kind of just passed through me. It was a very intense process,” she says. Now that it’s out there, Ensler admits she’s feeling “wildly vulnerable,” though not in a negative sense. “I just feel emotional, very emotional. But I feel it’s the book I’m meant to write. . . . So much of it feels like it came from my body and that I’m in my body with my body and very exposed in my body at the

same time. And it’s not a bad or good thing, it just is, you know?” she says. Ensler hopes readers from all backgrounds — females, males, cancer patients, survivors or otherwise, as well as anyone who has been forced out of their respective bodies — takes her message to heart. “I think reading this book, hopefully it’s this mantra of how do we keep our hearts open in the face of cruelty, in the face of attacks, in the face of seeing people be unkind to other people, in the face of seeing all the violence, in the face of people misunderstanding you. I think the work is not to put up armour,” she says. When asked why Ensler has dedicated so much of her life to helping others, particularly women, she says it’s got something to do with where pleasure and happiness are derived. “I think I learned at an early

age when I was feeling quite mad from all the violence and destruction around me that if I could try to help somebody else out or focus on somebody else it usually kept me sane,” she says. She references a recent trip to the Congo to attend the latest City of Joy graduation ceremony. She was struck by just how far the young women had come. “Is there anything that makes a person happier than that, to see another human being thrive, and transform and become who they were meant to be? That’s just incredible pleasure,” she says. Ensler will offer insight into her story and new work at an upcoming talk at Capilano University’s North Shore Credit Union Centre for the Performing Arts, Tuesday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. For more information on her writing and activism, visit eveensler.org and vday.org.

Koyczan. “TED was not a career highlight. TED was a life highlight. I don’t recall ever having felt so held by an audience. Thank you,” Koyczan tweeted following the event. Born in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Koyczan moved to Penticton, B.C. at 14. Practiced in the habit of journaling, Koyczan became more serious about writing as he neared the end of high school. “For me poetry, was . . . the fastest way to express what I was feeling, what I was going through,” he says. Koyczan first exposed those expressions to the light of an audience sometime around 1999 at the Vancouver Press Club, he says. “I didn’t know you had to have two poems in case you make it to the second round and so I had to write my second poem on the spot,” he says. Asked if he remembers

what the poem was about, Koyczan responds: “I have no idea.” There is a story suggesting Koyczan entered the poetry slam in the hopes of winning a cash prize to make up for a shortfall in his rent, but he couldn’t confirm that. “That sounds probably true,” he says. Koyczan likens participating in poetry slams to a search for his place. Asked why he decided to step on stage, Koyczan responds with three words: “Looking for others.” He seems to have found a like-minded tribe, many of whom relate to his life and his words. “Every day I get letters from people saying this is helping me through my day or this spoke to me on a personal level,” he says. “I guess initially I was amazed that somebody would see something within my work that they could really relate to but the more it’s happened the more people have come forward, I’ve really realized that we’re all kind of going through the same thing at the same time.”

For the last eight years, Koyczan has dedicated himself almost exclusively to the written word. “It was George Burns who said ‘I’d rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate.’ And so for me it’s always: why am I working shitty security jobs? I mean, why not take that chance and follow something you’re actually interested in,” he says. Asked who his poetry is written for, Koyczan’s replies: “Me, primarily. A lot of it’s therapy.” As therapy, it seems to be succeeding, says Koyczan. “It’s done well for me. I’ve been off antidepressants for a while now. It’s just a way to sort of release,” he says. One of the criticisms Koyczan has received is that his work is overly optimistic, a critique he bears proudly. “I think optimism, pessimism, skepticism, they’re choices. For me, I find that I’ve gone further in life with a positive attitude. The reason I’m as far along as I am is because I’ve said ‘yes’ more often than I’ve said ‘no.’”

McKENZIE, Roger Brian July 28, 1967 – May 2, 2013

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Roger Brian McKenzie at the age of 45. Loving husband to Katarina, beloved son to Tanya and Brian (deceased), brother to Marisa (Jason Delaney), uncle to Talia and Dean, son-in-law to Silvia Musto and loving companion to golden retriever George. He will also be greatly missed by his London family, Tomi, Akiko and Emi Musto. Roger grew up in West Van attending Caulfeild Elementary and then Hillside Secondary school from 1980-1985. He was passionate about alternative music and cars − particularly his GTO. Roger excelled at skiing and could be found most weekends on Whistler’s slopes during his teen years. Later, he worked in the family business, McKenzie Barge and Marineways, for several years before moving on to car sales at Carter Chevrolet. He then obtained his class 1 license and found his niche driving tour busses, a position that fit his extremely outgoing nature. Travelling, cooking and afternoons spent at the barbeque with his friends and family were among his favourite pastimes. He loved his many trips to Europe and Japan with Katarina as well as his many family vacations to Mexico and Hawaii. Roger made friends easily, from work to the dog park and everywhere in between. His loving and generous spirit was a testament to who Roger was. His exceptionally kind heart and unique sense of humour touched us all. Even in the face of illness and adversity, he could still come up with great oneliners. The family wishes to express their profound gratitude to Dr. Paul Sugar for his care and commitment throughout Roger’s illness, as well as Drs. Puneet Bains and Sasha Smiljanovic of Lions Gate Oncology and to the nurses and staff at Lions Gate Oncology and 7W Palliative Care. A special thank you to friends Steve Smith and Scott Brettoner for all of their help over these last months. Please join us for a memorial service for Roger and Roger’s father, Brian, who also passed away recently, to take place on Thursday, May 16, 2013 at the West Vancouver Yacht Club, 5854 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, 4:00pm-7:00 pm.

STEWART, Jane Marie Jan. 1st 1930 - May 7th 2013 On May 7th we lost our Mom to heart disease. She was born in Melfort, Saskatchewan, the youngest daughter in a family of twelve. Mom married Doug Clark and raised her family on the North Shore. She worked for thirtyeight years with Dr. Roger Bourgeault as his dental assistant. This job was the love of her life and she reluctantly retired at the age of 78. Working for Roger was where she earned the title ”Tooth Fairy”. Mom recently spent her time volunteering for the SPCA Thrift store. This job gave her what she called her “people fix”. She loved to listen to the stories of the customers and enjoyed the shoppers and all they brought to her day. Grandy, as we called her, leaves behind Sam Clark and sister Tracy Johnston, her Kids, as she called her Granddaughters, Sage, Candace and Sophie. Mom was a teacher, mentor and the best cook this side of the Rockies. She had a drive to make sure that everyone had food on their plates and clothes on their backs, these lessons have molded our lives and will continue to shine through us. We hope that in some way Mom touched your lives as all of you have touched hers. “Look at us and see her in our eyes' Celebration of Jane’s life will be held at 3pm on Saturday May 11th, 2013. Spurway Lodge, 235 Keith Road, West Vancouver

It is with sadness and yet a sense of peace that we announce the passing of our cherished Dad, Stan Whittle. He was 92. Dad was “Poppa” to 9 Grandchildren and 5 Great Grandchildren all of whom he was immensely proud of and loved to host at countless parties over the years. He joins our graceful Mom, Florence Whittle, predeceased by 12 years, looking over all of us with loving care. He is also predeceased by his brother Roy. Dad was born in 1920 in Victoria BC and was an award winning gardener and an accomplished business executive. His career started at the Neon Products Sign Company, a company he would later become President of and an organization that would form the roots of what is now known as the Jim Pattison Group. He was active for years in Rotary International and many of Rotary’s outreach programs. Dad spent the last few years at the Amica Retirement Home in West Vancouver who we thank dearly for their tender care. Dad was a “gentleman” who lived the philosophy to be strong, yet gentle. He had strong convictions but embraced all walks of life. And he exemplified the notion of 'unconditional love' and that 'forgiveness is a liberating strength, not a weakness'. We will miss you Dad: Nancy, Terry, Barb and Rob. A simple service celebrating this “special man” will be held this Saturday May 11th, 3 pm at St. David’s United Church located at Taylor Way and the Upper Levels highway (1525 Taylor Way) in West Vancouver.

GORDON RICHARD (DICK) MATTHEWS (April 20, 1931 – May 6, 2013)

Dick Matthews passed away at home on May 6, 2013, surrounded by his wife of 55 years, Diane, and their five children. Always determined, he stared down cancer briefly and then decided not to linger. A perfect day for Dick started before dawn trolling for salmon in the waters around Salt Spring Island. His crew was Diane, who watched for ferries, his son Gord, and a daughter or two (under duress), and perhaps a son-in-law and a grandchild. He would triumphantly sound the number of fish in the catch on the boat horn on return to the Tin Hut. One long blast of the horn announced that they had been skunked and he was ready for a Caesar. Dick lived in Aklavik, NWT, until he was seven years old. His family then settled in Vancouver. He attended Point Grey Junior High, Magee High and UBC. In between football games, soccer games, and dates with Diane, he earned a Bachelor of Arts (Econ.) and a Bachelor of Laws from UBC. He was an excellent athlete, earning Big Block letters in football and soccer. He was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. Dick articled with the law firm Andrews, Swinton & Smith and went on to a successful career as a businessman and a lawyer with Columbia Cellulose, Trans Mountain Pipeline, Rayonier Canada, and Western Forest Products. He was a Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Naval Reserve, serving as the gunnery officer at HMCS Discovery. He had a huge work ethic at home and in the office. In 1957 Dick and Diane were married. They built a home in West Vancouver where they raised their children. In 1970 Dick and Diane bought property on Salt Spring Island on which they placed the Tin Hut. The summers were great fun for our family and the friends whom Dick and Diane loved to entertain there. In 2009 the Tin Hut had done its time so Dick and Diane built their dream beach house. The family loves to gather there for special occasions and for ordinary ones. Dick and Diane loved to golf. They had many enjoyable vacations on Maui, in Palm Dessert, and further afield; some of their favourite holidays were with their good friends Beth and Bob Weese. Dick loved words: he often invented new words and phrases such as “uggle buggle juice” and “hotchastrosnia”; he had a tendency to unilaterally change the pronunciation of existing words to make them more apt; and he used nicknames for most people (sometimes without their knowledge). He was a genius at crossword puzzles. Dick was fiercely loyal. His family was extremely important to him. No favour was too big to ask; no support was too great for him to provide. He had broad shoulders and we leaned on them often. He is survived by Diane and their children: Dana (Greig), Leslie (Paul), Nancy, Gordon (Barb) and Sharon (Rob); his grandchildren: Matthews, Gordon, Hayden, Larissa, Christopher, Nicole, Natasha, Mariah and Cruise; nieces and nephews and his cousin, Bill Robertson. He was predeceased by his parents, Gordon and Molly, and his brother, Mike. We already miss his broad shoulders but we learned from him how to give our own to each other and how to work hard. No gifts could be greater. A memorial service will be held at 2 pm on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at St. Christopher’s Anglican Church, 1168 Inglewood Avenue, West Vancouver. A reception in West Vancouver will follow. The family gratefully declines flowers. Those who wish could consider a donation to the BC Cancer Agency or the BC Heart and Stroke Foundation.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to THE ROAD

braking news

Tax man in Italy targets supercar suspects A biweekly roundup of automotive news, good, bad and just plain weird:

claim that the styling is a bit derivative, but it’s derivative of one of the best-looking cars on the road today. Being told your family-hauler looks like an Aston Martin is akin to being told that your haircut makes you look too much like George Clooney. Oh dear, what a shame. Beyond the pretty face though, there are some quibbles. While the Fusion looks good from any angle up front, I can’t claim the same adoration for the design of the rear. The practical considerations of reasonable rear passenger room and a decently sized trunk are

Italy’s disappearing supercars You’d think that the home of Ferrari and Lamborghini would be filled with exotic metal, prancing stallions jostling rampant bulls for space in day-to-day traffic — the daily commute like an auto show in motion. You’d be wrong. In fact, even as the makers of supercars expand their worldwide sales, at-home ownership of supercars is at an all-time low and circling the drain. In 2010, Lambo sold 96 cars in its home market. 2011 saw 72 scissordoored machines leave Italian showrooms, and in 2012, just 60 cars. By comparison, total world sales have nearly doubled. So what gives? The problem isn’t speed limits, snarled traffic, or expensive fuel prices — it’s the carabinieri. The Italian police, tired of tax-dodging high rollers, have started pulling over every supercar they see and checking their tax declarations. Claiming you only cleared the equivalent of $50,000 last year? Then kindly explain this $500,000 Ferrari, sir. Oops. Aside from the obvious Robin Hood PR-friendly angle for the government, tax evasion is a real problem

would drive off somewhere in an outlandish red hot rod. Today we mark the passing of a man who was a master of monkeying around with the automobile. Not only did Dean Jeffries design the Monkeemobile and put the first coat of paint on the very first Shelby Cobra, he’s also the guy behind the ’32 Ford on the cover of the Beach Boys’ Little Deuce Coupe album. He also did some paintwork on James Dean’s doomed Porsche 550 Spyder. A contemporary of wellknown Batmobile builder George Barris, Jeffries also was a skilled stunt driver and had film credits for The Blues Brothers and Die Hard With A Vengeance. He was right at the center of American car culture, all through the golden years of the automobile, and he will be missed. BMW i3 electric car to cost around $40,000 Once a manufacturer you could count on to put driving feel above all else, BMW has been steadily repositioning itself as a champion of futuristic efficiency solutions. Remember the wild-looking Bimmer from the last Mission Impossible flick? Stuff like that. Those of us who remember the blue-and-white roundel’s purist-pleasing past aren’t going to be especially thrilled about their upcoming electro-pod, but fans of saving fuel surely will be. The plug-in machine will also be available with a range-extending gasoline engine sourced from BMW’s motorcycle division. Official pricing is not completely released, but the

rumour is somewhere around the $40,000 range, perhaps slightly more to Canadian consumers. That’s about the same price as a Nissan Leaf, and you have to wonder whether BMW’s ownership of Mini will combine to make the car a sort of plug-in hot-hatchback. One can only hope. GM president wants a Chevy-badged FRS General Motors head honcho Mark Reuss wants “a really nice, light, rear-drive car that’s inexpensive.” Who doesn’t? Wait, turns out he wants a car like that to join the Chevrolet lineup. Sir, first you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention. Of course, while everyone in their mid-20s hears “inexpensive, light, rear-drive Chevy” and thinks “miniCamaro,” everyone in their mid-50s thinks “Chevette.” And not in a good way. Still, that was old GM, and this is a new, more globally focussed company that has good product on the ground and a strong sports car heritage. Could they make a viable successor to the Miata or Toyobaru? Well, the Pontiac Solstice was fairly OK if you sourced it with the turbo engine. What’s more, base the machine on a cutdown version of the chassis under-pinning the Cadillac ATS, and there might just be something there. Of course, this is all American Apple-Pie-inthe-sky at this point. Even so, with the Camaro and Mustang fully fledged muscle cars, perhaps a new breed of owners would take to a smaller pony car.

Touchscreen technology takes time to learn From page 51

This is much easier to use than it used to be, and again, familiarity makes it seem sensible. There are reports of MyFord Touch freezing up, or having other glitches, but I have yet to observe this personally. Tech aside, the seats are very comfortable, the rear seat room is only slightly less than something like an Accord, and visibility is very good — you’ll never hear anybody say that about an Aston Martin. Performance My tester came outfitted with the mid-level 1.6-litre EcoBoost turbo charged four-cylinder, producing 178 horsepower and 184 footpounds of torque, or about the same as competitors’ larger, 2.5-litre four-cylinder engines. The Fusion can also be spec’d with a regular 2.5-litre four, or a 2.0-litre turbo with a healthy 240 horses, or a hybrid powertrain. I’ve not driven the current-generation

you’ll get a good idea what the inside of the Fusion is all about. The overall layout is very straightforward, but there’s enough technology crammed in here to make Q start drooling. Or possibly swearing. One drawback to reviewing vehicles for a single week is that’s not quite enough time to familiarize oneself with some of the more complicated systems out there — and MyFord Touch is among the most potentially convoluted setups on the market. However, once you’ve driven a few Fords, you start to get the gist of what their engineers were trying to do. The multi-function, switchable displays on either side of the speedometer have a wealth of information to be sorted through, and the digital fuel gauge seems actually fairly accurate, which isn’t as common as you might think. Then there’s the centre touchscreen which controls pretty much everything.

not something that Aston’s stylists need to bother with, but Ford has a different set of priorities. So, from the side and three-quarter rear profile, the Fusion is not quite as handsome. I hesitate to use the phrase “love handles,” but certainly it should keep the tuxedo on, and perhaps not don those blue Speedos without doing a few more lunges. Oh yeah, and speaking of handles, my tester had a slightly misaligned one on the driver’s side. I do mean slightly, and ordinarily something like this is no big deal but — well, it’s a bit like a weak handshake every time you get into the car. Had I my wallet out, I would be casting a careful eye for fit and finish before taking delivery. Environment Think comfortable living room with a giant flat-screen TV and multiple digital devices hooked up to it, and

Fusion fun to drive in the city From page 53

THE Mazda6 is a driver-focused sedan. It’s a blast out on the road with good fuel economy but places less focus on features than the Fusion does.

THE Honda Accord is a household name for a reason. It’s roomy, efficient and fun to drive, though perhaps not as stylish as the new Fusion.

hybrid, but the previous car produced excellent fuel economy and is well worth a look as an alternative to a Toyota product. However, the 1.6 turbo does not put out the numbers you expect. It’s a very punchy motor, especially off the line: remember that this is the sort of powerplant you get with a Mini Cooper S or Nissan Juke.

The premise seems to be that smaller forced-induction engines give the power of a larger-displacement option with better fuel economy. In laboratory tests, I’m sure that’s the case. Out in the real world, dipping into the boost starts skewing the results further and further away from the figures on the window sticker. However, the drive is

THE Fusion’s 1.6-litre Ecoboost engine option is big on low end torque but light on top end power. It sets up well for zigging and zagging through city traffic rather than carving the corners on a race track.

Excellent offerings in competitive mid-sized sedan class From page 54

great, particularly around the city. The six-speed transmission operates quickly, and while the suspension isn’t set up to be as sporty as something like a Mazda6, the Fusion is willing and grippy, though that smallish engine doesn’t match its low-end grunt in top-end power. Doubtless the sport model will give you a bit more poise in the corner-carving department, but the chassis is willing at this more comfortoriented level. Frankly, I wish Ford would stuff their hilariously powerful EcoBoost V-6 in here so we could go hunt down BMW 3-Series at the racetrack. For now though, it’s nicely balanced. Features Pricing for the basic S model starts at $22,499 and runs up to the mostexpensive Titanium models (which look utterly fantastic, by the way) at $33,499. However, the base prices are just the beginning. Glancing over the options breakdown on my tester, I can see some pricey items, like the $3,000 luxury package with leather and heated seats, or the $1,500 for driver assists (lane-keeping and blind-spot detection). All told, this 1.6 SE goes through the checkout for $33,199 after freight and PDI. Seems like a lot, but actually compares favourably with a well-equipped Japanese mid-sizer. Fuel-economy is officially rated at 8.5 litres/100 kilometres city and 5.3 l/100 km highway. Not going to happen. Mixed mileage is rated at 7.0 l/100 km but you’re more likely to see double-digit consumption, depending on driving style. Green light Stunning looks; solid chassis; high-tech options; comfortable ride; roomy interior. Stop sign Turbo engines can be thirstier than expected; slightly fiddly infotainment; options costs can mount up. The checkered flag Might not be licensed to kill, but a solid play for your mid-sized dollar: from Michigan with love. Competitors Honda Accord ($23,990) Honda’s mid-sized car is a household name for a reason, and this current-generation car is a slam-dunk. It’s roomy, it’s efficient, and you don’t even need to option it with the rocketship V-6 to

worth the price of admission. So, it really comes down to whether you like your secret agents to have an arsenal of gadgets, or just a really good judo-chop.

But it’s a driver’s car, and that means the value is in the chassis and drivetrain, not in features. In particular, Mazda’s TomTom-based navigation system isn’t really

family car. This Mazda is also an excellent option — excellent driving dynamics paired with stellar fuel economy. It’s a great-looking car too.
