CapU cuts non-degree programs

Board endorses cuts of $1.3M to balance books Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THE axe has come down on a swath of Capilano University programs as the school’s board of governors passed its 2013 budget aimed at tackling a $1.3-million shortfall. An overflow crowd, mostly members of the Capilano Faculty Association, came out Tuesday evening to watch the board’s fateful vote, which the CFA says will fundamentally change the face of the university. In a secret ballot vote, 11 members of the 15member board voted to pass the budget, drawing jeers of “shame” from the packed gallery. Two board members were opposed, one abstained and there was one spoiled ballot. The adopted budget means the North Vancouver campus will phase out its two-year diploma courses in studio art, textile art, interactive design as well as certificate courses NEWS photo Kevin Hill in ceramics and medical assistance training after the STUDENTS and faculty members of Capilano University hoist protest signs during Tuesday’s board meeting that endorsed program current cohort of students has cuts to balance a $1.3-million budget deficit.

WV may not have final say Faculty members From page 1

“We have to look at those ugly towers all the time,” he said. “Why aren’t we ending up with a consideration?” The Rogers proposal is a departure from previous tower designs, according to project architect Vance Harris. While other towers are a gimcrackery of steel and antennae, these “clean, slimprofile” towers have their power and radio equipment packed inside a smooth exoskeleton, according to Harris. The bases of the towers are approximately six feet by four feet, tapering nearer the top. Built to last for between 50 and 100 years, the towers will fill in the patchwork of West Vancouver’s spotty cellular network, according to Harris. “They intensify and fill in those dead areas and allow the whole system to work better,” he said. Many West Vancouverites use Vancouver’s increasingly overworked cell sites, which may soon leave the higher elevations of West Van offline, according to a release from Rogers. During a May 27 council discussion about the district’s cell tower policy, Soprovich took exception to the notion the district was poorly served. “I object to any provider coming to a municipality and saying ‘We’re putting 14 towers in your municipality because we have some dropped calls.’ When asked by the image supplied design review committee in fact, ‘Was it for dropped calls?’ A computer-generated image shows what the 169-foot (52-metre) cell tower that ‘Oh no, it’s for somebody in Rogers plans to erect near 26th Street in West Vancouver will look like. a basement with an iPad,’” he Installing cell towers on district land may be unlikely, said. Except for a few places in the western region of West according to the district’s manager of community planning Geri Vancouver, Soprovich said the community’s wireless needs are Boyle. “The Ministry of Transportation has the big swath of land that seems to support the towers,” she said. met. The district recently passed a new policy on cellular towers The prospect of new technology pushing the Rogers towers into obsolescence was considered in the design, according to and antennae, despite Soprovich’s lingering questions about Harris. “These towers are a balance between future-proofing the health concerns. The councillor called on the federal government to sponsor technology, allowing enough space to accommodate everything that all of the intelligent people around the table can envision an educational program on how to live with microwave radiation. Soprovich advocated for microwave radiation testing on the top coming down the pipe,” he said. Rogers will likely have one tower built by the end of the year, two floors of any building equipped with a rooftop antenna. “We’re very limited in our ability to deal with health issues,” according to Harris, who added that installation is contingent on said Coun. Nora Gambioli. “Because, as you say, it’s federal government approval. If approved, the Rogers towers would be situated on land jurisdiction.” Representatives from Telus have also approached the district controlled by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, about possible towers, but those meetings were very preliminary, excluding the district from any taxation benefits. The trend of placing towers along the highway could be according to district communications manager Jeff McDonald. An open house on the Rogers proposal is scheduled for June remedied by building the infrastructure in rural areas of the 18 at 5 p.m. at St. David’s Church on Taylor Way. community, according to Soprovich.

argue Capilano’s mission changing From page 1

“It’s just that there’s been no proper discussion and the revisioning has been hidden in a budget rather than in a deliberation about mission and values of and choice of criteria.” The Capilano Faculty Association had proposed an alternative budget that would see a four-per cent reduction in operating expenses across the board in order to buy time for the school’s leadership to shore up senior government funding and consult with the university community on how it should reshape itself. But that proposal was evaluated by the senate budget advisory committee who decided it simply wasn’t feasible as it relied on cutting funding to areas of the budget the board does not have control over, according to Tammy Towill, certified management accountant, a teacher in the school’s business department and member of the board. “Anybody who had any idea, we took it and we looked at it. There was never a time we sat down as a committee and said ‘Our first choice is to send our colleagues away from this institution.’ That was never our first choice,” she said. University president Kris Bulcroft denied that the administration was carving out a new future meant only for degree students. “I want to remind you we have over 250 degrees, certificates and diplomas at Capilano. We actually only have a dozen degrees and there’s nothing in this budget that implies we’re going to increase degree production,” she said. After months of protest from students and faculty as well as delays in passing the budget so the committee could study other options, Bulcroft said it was time for the board to vote and move forward. “As you well know, this has been a very difficult set of circumstances, but I am convinced the motion I’m about to offer the board provides the best path forward that impacts the fewest number of students compared to other solutions that were proposed and evaluated,” she said. After the vote, despondent students and instructors, many of them in tears, gathered in the adjacent room to shoot a video of individual reactions to the budget, their grievances with the way it was reached, and what it would mean for CapU’s reputation. Particularly aggravating for some was the loss of computing science as the business community has a huge need for those skills, right up to the management level. “They have ideas and they can drive a business forward but they don’t have the technical expertise to make the systems come alive. They need a computer science background to even be able to talk to the programmers,” said Joseph Fall, an instructor in the program in an earlier interview. The justification given for his program being targeted was that computer skills are now taught in every faculty. Jason Madar, the program’s now laid-off co-ordinator, compared that to no longer needing to make cars because everyone can still learn to drive. Madar has since had job offers from former students — a testament to the value of the cancelled program, he said after Tuesday’s meeting. The faculty association will be seeking a legal opinion on whether the senate and board’s decisions are in contravention of the University Act, which mandates that faculty be consulted on major changes to the schools. The union estimates between 400 and 700 students will now be precluded from attending the smaller Capilano University.

Judge jails North Vancouver man for riot role

London Drugs looter draws 45 days to be served on weekends

Jane Seyd jseyd@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver man who looted the downtown London Drugs store, stealing a cellphone on the night of the Stanley Cup hockey riot, has been handed a 45-day jail sentence. Chase Cooper, 25, is the first North Vancouver rioter to receive an actual jail

sentence, after pleading guilty to participating in a riot earlier this year. Judge Jocelyn Palmer handed down the sentence in Vancouver provincial court on Thursday. Cooper will serve his jail time on weekends. The hockey riot broke out in downtown Vancouver on the night of June 15, 2011, following the Vancouver Canucks’ loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. According to Crown prosecutors, Cooper hung around the riot for a prolonged period of time, filming other rioters, before taking part in the looting. Cooper was among the first wave of looters who swarmed into London Drugs at Georgia and Granville streets after rioters smashed the

store’s front windows, said Crown spokeswoman Samantha Hulme. Video evidence showed Cooper left the store, but then returned a second time. On his second foray, Cooper stole a cellphone from the store’s electronics department. Cooper turned himself in after the police riot squad posted his picture on their website. He returned the stolen cellphone about six weeks before his sentencing hearing. But the judge was unimpressed that Cooper had waited so long to return the stolen property. Palmer rejected the request from Cooper’s defence lawyer for a lighter sentence, saying the looting at London Drugs was a major event in the riot that had caused significant distress to store staff, who had to lock themselves in

a secure room in the basement to escape the mob. The judge also rejected a conditional sentence, saying real jail was needed to denounce the looters’ actions. Cooper has a previous criminal conviction for impaired driving in North Vancouver, entered six months before the riot. In addition to the jail time, Cooper was put on nine months probation and ordered to finish 100 hours of community work service. Three other North Vancouver rioters — ranging from 19 to 24 in age — have received conditional sentences ranging from two to four months of house arrest. Another North Vancouver rioter who also pleaded guilty to looting in London Drugs has yet to be sentenced.

WV agrees to waterfront rezoning Some accessory uses included in 13th-18th Street park zoning

Anne Watson newsroom@nsnews.com

DISTRICT of West Vancouver council voted unanimously Monday in favour of scaled-down park uses for a popular stretch of waterfront in Ambleside. The changes to previously proposed zoning amendments include shrinking potential commercial spaces by as much as half, including a restaurant space from 6,000 square feet to 3,000 square feet, to maintain the cottage-country feel of the shoreline. The area runs from 13th Street to 18th Street, south of the railroad tracks. Council agreed that the new amendments to the municipality’s official community plan and zoning bylaws addressed some residents’ concerns regarding the area, some of whom argued the proposals would turn the area into New York’s Coney Island. “There was never any intention that this was going to become Coney Island, and I take some exception to that,” said Coun. Michael Lewis. Othercouncillors,including Nora Gambioli, echoed

Lewis’s sentiments. “I don’t believe this is Coney Island, we are not going in that direction,” said Gambioli. “I think we will actually be increasing green space once some of the buildings that we already own come down, which will be fairly soon.” At the public hearing prior to the council meeting, most residents were supportive of the amendments. Rey Concepcion, a father of three who lives in Westhill near the Salmon House restaurant, said he would like the community to have more local entertainment for his family. “I find it sad that my children always have to go to North Vancouver whenever they want to have activities,” said Concepcion. “We should have the option of waterfront dining and some sort of cultural activities.” Other residents were still reluctant about the proposal of a restaurant, including Bellevue Avenue resident Carolyn Gilbert who said it’s “redundant” to have a restaurant along the waterfront when similar operations are struggling in the area. “This shoreline is West Vancouver’s greatest asset and should be preserved in

as natural a state as possible,” said Gilbert, adding that commercial use along the shoreline is “inappropriate.” But the councillors said a restaurant would help bring greater recreational use to the park. “What we are trying to include is something that balances the use as a green space with the use as a social space,” said Coun. Craig Cameron. “In any location in the world where people get together and socialize, they eat and they drink. That is what human beings do.” Cameron said having a local, small-scale restaurant could entice people to use the park more in the evenings and throughout the year.

“It’s meant to be open, accessible, friendly and very much integrated with the public spaces in the park,” said Cameron. “It’s meant to add to how the park can be used.” Gambioli added that park accessories, including restaurants, arts and cultural facilities would be debated separately and include public input on proposals and designs, something that is stated in the amended bylaws. “It doesn’t actually say we are going to do all these things right away,” said Gambioli. “It leaves the door open to some of these uses that we may want to have in the future.” Coun. Mary-Ann Booth agreed that leaving the door open for new facilities could

increase the energy of the area and noted one famous local park as an example. “There are parks that do include commercial operations, including our beloved Stanley Park,” said Booth. “I believe that we can make it a win-win for all 44,000 residents of this community by offering more options that bring people down to the community and enliven our waterfront.” Cameron said that having a place for kids and finding balance within the community is key. “We can have a park that does everything for all the people,” said Cameron. “We have to think about appealing to not just one demographic but all the demographics in the community.”

HEN Capilano College graduated to university status in 2008, then-premier Gordon Campbell and then-college president Greg Lee crowed about the bright future of the post-secondary institution. The white-hot economy meant students would need degrees to compete, they said. A walk around the bleak campus today doesn’t reflect their vision after the school’s board of governors slashed hundreds of non-degree granting classes to make up for a budget shortfall. No one would argue that things must stay the same forever. But the way these budget cuts came about shows a marked lack of planning and commitment, both by the province and the campus administration that presided over the 11th-hour program executions. The province was happy to

grant Capilano its “university” name, but funding to back up it up never came. Administrative acquiescence to a per-capita funding shortfall now leaves it open to the charge of programming for profit rather than for the community it serves. Many of the programs lost on Tuesday had excellent track records for getting graduates employed or on track for more advanced education. This comes at a time when students must ask themselves if the debt they’ll take on in order to get a four-year bachelor’s degree is worth it. Unemployment among the college graduation age is still double the rate it is for those over 25. We can’t go back to 2008 and warn everyone about the reality of today’s economy, but we can get back to sound planning to solve CapU’s identity crisis.

Hooray for the Great Wall of Richardson Dear Editor: Oh happy day! I just wanted to publicly commend the fine folks at Richardson and Port Metro Vancouver and send a big congratulations in their victory against the wee, unimportant residents of the Moodyville area. I think ensuring a strong trade with Asia absolutely trumps any local concerns of a “great wall” destroying the local’s residential investments and well-being. I, along with my wife Nicol, are renting a gorgeous basement suite in the 500-block of East First Street. We love our morning coffees, the birds, the views of East Vancouver, and even the odd ship that sails past. What we are really looking forward to, though, is that massive grey wall that is going to adorn our entire backyard.

Completely gone will be our view — just a massive chunk of concrete in its place. Wheee! Our landlords, who currently live in Calgary, bought this home last July and were planning on retiring out here in the next year or so. They call this home their perfect retirement beach house. It’s going to be swell for them, too; they just lost a few hundred thousand dollars. Yippee! I think, while PMV has some steam, they should continue the “great wall of Asia” all the way around to Deep Cove and back towards the First Narrows. Maybe then, local jurisdictions might fight a little harder to thwart these cash mongers from expanding their stupidly massive eyesore silos. Oh wait . . . local jurisdictions have zero say. Wahoo! In all seriousness: Richardson and PMV’s tunnel vision, lack

of real empathy and co-operation, and greed have trumped the concerns of the local residents’ ability to enjoy a wonderful locale to live and retire. So sad. So shameful. As renters we can, and will, move before this is finished. I feel deeply for the older folks who have planted their roots, or purchased their dream house along these streets, with little or no energy or options to relocate. Goodbye, assets. This really sucks, on so many levels. Shame on Port Metro Vancouver and Richardson for their bullying and lack of finding any sort of mutual solution. Warm fuzzies all over.

Bus stop strategy at Park Royal frustrates commuters

Dear Editor: As a person who is trying to keep my carbon footprint as small as possible, I do not have a car and use my feet or a bus as my mode of transportation. Most times the bus works well for me. However, I — and many other passengers — were shocked to find out that the 239 Park Royal bus no longer stops at the Park Royal bus stop on the north side of Marine Drive. Because of all the construction at Park Royal, the 239 formerly would continue down Marine Drive and turn right by the liquor store at Park Royal and then make a left turn on Marine Drive, which meant they were turning left through three lanes of traffic. Even though there is a traffic light there, the West Vancouver police were giving the bus drivers tickets

CONTACT US

for making the left hand turn. We now have the choice of getting off on the east side of the Capilano River and then having just a second or so to cross at both the Marine Drive and Taylor Way pedestrian crossings. (Could the traffic people at West Van hall please tell us how many people are able to cross in that time frame?) Or we can stay on the bus as it does a nice little loop around the south side of the mall stopping at the first bus stop on the south side. In any case, these choices are inconvenient and time consuming for all of us who are trying to get to work or connect with other buses. It is obvious that the brass at Park Royal never considered the needs of pedestrians and/or bus passengers, any more than they are showing concern for the merchants in their mall whom

I believe still have to pay the full rental for their spaces during construction. Since Larco will be a major player in construction if they get approval for the tower they plan for the present White Spot location, as well as development of the old Capilano Winter Club location, I just wonder if any ground rules will be laid down by both the districts of West and North Vancouver regarding all traffic, including buses and pedestrians? In the meantime bus passengers deserve a lot more consideration and thought than they are presently receiving on the 239 bus, and someone has to step up to the plate to rectify this situation.

Clark marks her territory with new cabinet

ONE of Premier Christy Clark’s frustrations for the past two years has been her struggle to put a new face on her government, to clearly show she was in charge and that there was a clear separation from the Gordon Campbell era. Winning an election outright accomplished just that. So does the make-up of her post-election cabinet. Clark displayed a deft touch in ensuring old hands remain at the cabinet table, while at the same time bringing in fresh faces that will help change the public image of the government. The combination of experience and new blood is a tricky equation to get right, but it appears Clark has done well. Of course, some familiar faces continue to serve at the senior table. Rich Coleman,

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

Shirley Bond and Mike de Jong were mainstays of previous B.C. Liberal government cabinets and they will be in Clark’s government as well. But their public profile may be lowered somewhat, allowing other, lesser known names to emerge as the new face of the B.C. Liberals. For example, Bond is moving from the justice portfolio to the jobs ministry.

As justice minister, Bond practically resided on every television newscast and radio show, as the ministry is always dealing with hot button issues. She won’t have the same airtime as jobs minister, even though the portfolio is a key one in government. Instead, the new justice minister — former Vancouver city councillor Suzanne Anton — is the person who is about to become very well known with the public. Anton is an interesting choice as justice minister and attorney-general. As a former Crown counsel, she obviously has a legal background, but she did not distinguish herself at Vancouver city hall. Nevertheless, she will have ample opportunity to impress (or stumble) in her new highprofile role. Coleman will continue in a senior position — natural gas and social housing minister and deputy premier — but he no

Mailbox Private sector clarified

Dear Editor: In my May 26 letter challenging Burnaby Mayor Corrigan’s comments on P3s (public private partnerships), I made two errors in one of the four major points I made. I named a number of municipalities in B.C. and Alberta which had “elected P3s” for their drinking water operations. This was an error. These municipalities elected private sector solutions, but it is a mixture of P3s, privately owned utilities, and simple private sector outsourcing (service contracts; no financing, designing and building the plant). My point remains true: a significant number of municipalities (and I mentioned only Alberta and B.C. and only one water service provider — EPCOR) have entrusted the private sector with their water and/or wastewater services. I was also out-of-date on Wood Buffalo, Alta.: they are now considering a municipally owned service provider for themselves and other customers, much like EPCOR (Edmonton) or ENMAX (Calgary). John Hunter North Vancouver

longer has responsibilities for gaming or liquor, which will keep him out of the news cycle rather than in it. Another new face that will have a high profile is Peter Fassbender, the mayor of Langley and now a Surrey MLA. He was a provocative choice as education minister, and soon he will be squaring off against the B.C. Teachers Federation, which is sure to thrust him into the limelight on a regular basis. I’m told Fassbender’s appointment caught the BCTF leadership off guard. He’s no stranger to big responsibilities — he helped negotiate B.C.’s RCMP contract and played a key role in formulating transit policy in Metro Vancouver. The BCTF will find him no pushover. Another newcomer you’ll be hearing and seeing a lot of is Todd Stone, the Kamloops MLA who is now the transportation minister.

It’s a portfolio that’s mostly about good news and big announcements involving lots of money for various projects, and it usually attracts a fair amount of media coverage. Finally, while not a new face, Terry Lake’s profile is about to grow substantially. He performed well in the environment ministry, but now he’s the new health minister, which has a whole higher level of challenges, many of which are never far away from the six o’clock news. So Clark has cleverly kept some key veterans at her side, while ensuring newcomers like Anton, Fassbender and Stone, and veteran Lake take over from Bond and Coleman as the dominant faces of government. Clark can now say the Campbell era is well and truly over, and her own era is just beginning after a two-year try-out. ••• While who sits at the

cabinet table is of course important, so too is determining who the deputy ministers are. Clark has quietly made at least one key change in this area. A looming war with B.C.’s doctors may be averted with the removal of Graham Whitmarsh as deputy health minister and the bringing in of Stephen Brown to replace him. Whitmarsh was on a collision course with the B.C. Medical Association, as he wanted to delve into the politically explosive area of doctors’ financial compensation, with the aim of lowering it in many cases. The highly-regarded Brown will likely defuse what appeared to be growing tensions between the two parties, thus sparing Clark the kind of political war with doctors that governments rarely, if ever, win.

I need help speaking Game of Thrones

ADMITTEDLY it’s been a while since I spent an evening in a nightclub, but when I found myself in that situation last week I wasn’t expecting to be so out of the loop that I was actually speaking a different language.

Last week was Vancouver Craft Beer Week and I, being a discerning and sophisticated newspaper columnist, was invited to several of these outings to offer my sophisticated opinion. By the end of the week I was really getting a clever routine down. I’d take my teeny sampling glass, ask for some beer, look at it for between four and six seconds, take a drink and then — here’s where it gets technical — say, “Hmmm, oh that’s nice.” I’d repeat this a good two, three or four dozen times and then get back on the SeaBus — still commanding respect with my sophisticated newspaper columnist nametag — and try not to vomit on the sea captain. These were, after all, events designed to allow patrons to try many different local beers while enjoying the craftsmanship and camaraderie of our local brewers. The operative words in that previous sentence, however, are always going to be “many” and “beers.” Even at the most nerdy of beer-tasting events, by 10:30 p.m. you still end up standing next to a guy in the washroom who is belting out

Laugh All You Want Andy Prest

“Dust in the Wind” whilst peeing. The nightclub event in question didn’t even pretend to cater to the beer connoisseur — sure there were special-brewed casks lined up on the bars but both the beard and plaid ratios were way below normal craft brew standards. No, this was a trendy Gastown club party held in what appeared to formerly be a trendy Gastown dungeon. The joint certainly didn’t have any time for outdated extravagances like windows, air circulation or fat people. Crammed inches away from strangers in the sweltering heat of long beer lines, I certainly left more than my share of big, fashionable piles of sweat all over the place. Even the washrooms were funky new designs that featured guys and gals sharing the same little singleserve rooms and washing up at communal sinks. I don’t have the authority to speak for the ladies but I do believe this isn’t a great deal for them — trendy pee on the seat is no less wet.

Anyway, sorry for being gross, but that’s sort of where my problem starts. As a father of two kids under the age of three, the language I speak is English but I have a strong “poop” accent. As the night wore on at the nightclub I found myself more and more striking up conversations about super sexy subjects like the incredibly inefficient way a toddler uses toilet paper or breathlessly retelling the tale of the seldom seen but always dreaded three-poop nap. Yes, it’s gross, but it’s English. Everyone else I spoke to, however, was talking in a language I barely understood and did not speak at all. The language was Game of Thrones. The popular HBO fantasyworld television series was

all anyone wanted to talk about and, as seemingly the only person in the entire bar who had never seen a single episode, I was more hopeless than a drunken British tourist trying to order a pint of bitter from a potted fern. I tried to hide my ignorance, offering up a few words I’d picked up on the street. “Boobs?” I said. “Dragons, dwarves. Did I say boobs already?” Damn, did it get even hotter in here? Anybody bring a tableside shower? One last stab: “Winter is coming?” Nope, not good enough. Not at all. “You forgot carnage,” my friend said. “Carnage is the first word. And hello, incest anyone?” That question drew

an interesting look from the trendy ladies standing next to us. I then dug myself even deeper, going on to explain why I’d never seen an episode. I’m going to explain it again here, though I’m risking intense ridicule from a certain segment of the population. There’s a real generational divide here: People over the age of 40 will all immediately comprehend my answer and carry on with the business of owning all the houses and getting into fights at children’s soccer games. Those under 30, however, will lose all respect for me. Lucky for me there are approximately only seven humans on earth under the age of 30 who still read newspapers.

RCMP warns of terminal ‘refunds’ Brent Richter brichter@nsnews.com

THE RCMP is warning business owners after a cunning new scam has cropped up, draining the bank accounts of retailers around the Lower Mainland. The scam involves suspects using point of sale terminals to “refund” themselves huge amounts of money onto debit cards while pretending to make a purchase. The con artists typically punch the POS manufacturer’s default code to carry out a refund and then key in a large sum of money to be transferred. If the merchant becomes suspicious at the inordinate amount of time or button-pushing required, the suspect pockets the receipt and claims the transaction did not work. Retailers have been taken for amounts between $500 and $2,100, according to the North Vancouver RCMP. “If the default code is not changed by the business merchant, it makes it possible for the suspect to conduct the refund transaction by pressing a few numbers on the POS terminal, (and) the merchant is responsible for any financial loss,” said Const. Dave Townsend, investigator with the RCMP’s economic crime unit, in an email to North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce Members. To combat the scam, businesses are encouraged to change their POS’s refund code and keep it closely guarded among trusted, current staff. Business owners can also limit the amount of money the machines are allowed to refund. Merchants should also never leave wireless POS machines unattended.

Park Royal South #*&-1)%-)*&' $ "+(/.0-,0!

Here goes: I haven’t watched Game of Thrones because I don’t get that channel. Phew. Of course you old timers know what I’m talking about. For the kids, however, the notion of being restricted to a set number of TV channels is about as meaningless as a screen door on an eight-track player. Whatever they want to watch, there is some guy named WobbleNobble47 in Puerto Rico who will happily screen it for them on the Internet anytime, anywhere. I resolved to someday soon acquire the whole Game of Thrones series and watch it all the way through. I’m going to try, however, to do this in a legal matter. Anyone heard when it’ll come out on VHS? aprest@nsnews.com

INQUIRING REPORTER THE United States is monitoring its citizens, but so are we. The recently unveiled secret domestic surveillance program south of the border has triggered new debate about the precarious balance between security and liberty. Intelligence agencies are now capable of compiling more data than they can ever scrutinize, ranging from phone calls to emails to that thing you did in your car when you thought no one was paying attention. Is bidding farewell to privacy the price we pay for terrorism? Should we be more concerned about surveillance? — Jeremy Shepherd

Justin Johnson North Vancouver “They monitor everything else, what’s the difference?”

Should the federal government be allowed to monitor your Internet use?

Lucas Snowden North Vancouver “No. You should have your freedom to do what you want, as long as it’s not illegal.”

Bruce Sinski North Vancouver “In a word: No. Mainly because we have CSIS. There is no such thing now as privacy.”

Matthew Wild North Vancouver “No, it’s an invasion of privacy.”

Curtis Brawn North Vancouver “No. It’s invasive and it goes against our freedom to not live in a surveillance state.”

JOHN Weston stands behind Prime Minister Stephen Harper in light of the recent controversies hitting the Canadian Senate and the Prime Minister’s Office. “He would be the first to say he’s taking lumps for what persons have done on his team and that’s what accountability is all about,” the West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky MP told the Powell River Peak during a phone interview. “He stood up day after day and answered questions as clearly as he could in the House.” The controversy began with the disclosure of an investigation into expense claims made by four senators, then escalated when Nigel Wright, Harper’s former chief of staff, wrote a $90,000 cheque for Conservative Senator Mike Duffy to reimburse his expenses. When Harper came into office in 2006, the first step he made was to introduce the Accountability Act, Weston said, the most sweeping law of its kind. Having set high levels of accountability, what Harper didn’t do was say that every person that was appointed by him and every person elected as a Conservative would abide by those levels, Weston added. “All he did was set in play the rule of law and one that Canadians have generally embraced,” he said. “Obviously I’m disappointed to hear the allegations that somebody was claiming for reimbursement of expenses that he did not expend and along with most Canadians, I welcome the fact that he’s under scrutiny by two different agencies.” Meanwhile, the government has brought in 11 new measures to require more clarity and increased accountability of senators, Weston said. “I applaud those things,” he said. “I continue to seek senate reform in a much more profound way than would be indicated by these expense issues.” Weston said he thinks the country should have an effective senate that is elected and equal and has some sense of regional equality. “I think it’s an important institution that can help broker See Senate page 11

Senate levels regional playing field: Weston From page 10

regional differences over not just six months or eight months, but over the next centuries of Canadian history,” he said. As well, Wright is going to be investigated by the ethics commissioner, Weston said, and what happened will be revealed in the course of time. “All we know is that Nigel Wright wrote a cheque, he was acting on his own devices, the prime minister has disavowed any knowledge of the matter until it was done and he immediately accepted the resignation of Nigel Wright after it was done,” he said. Last week, Edmonton-St. Albert MP Brent Rathgeber resigned from the Tory caucus, writing on his website that “I barely recognize ourselves, and worse I fear that we have morphed into what we once mocked . . . I can only compromise so much before I begin to not recognize myself.”

Cyclist’s death drives petition

A cycling tragedy last month has prompted a petition aiming to increase bike safety on the Stanley Park Causeway. A 61-year-old woman from North Vancouver was riding on the sidewalk through the park when she lost her balance and fell onto the road in front of a West Vancouver transit bus. Police said she may have just bumped into a group of pedestrians before the fatal accident. The petition is organized by Metro Vancouver bicycling advocacy group HUB. “This unfortunate tragedy could have been prevented by a barrier or fence between the sidewalk and the roadway, and by providing adequately wide or separated bike and walking paths along the Causeway,” the preamble to the petition states. “A large and growing number of Vancouver and North Shore residents ride to and from Lions Gate Bridge through Stanley Park. The existing cycling facilities and the 2012 Stanley Park Cycling Plan do little to provide safe and convenient connections between downtown Vancouver and Lions Gate Bridge.” The petition is scheduled to land on the desks of Premier Christy Clark, newly appointed Minister of Transportation Todd Stone, as well as City of Vancouver council and Vancouver Park Board members, and all of whom of have a stake in the project. By Thursday afternoon, the petition had nearly 450 signatures. The petition can be found online by searching “Stanley Park” at change.org. — Brent Richter

Weston pointed out that like Rathgeber, he was among a group of 11 Conservative backbenchers who stood up in April to voice support for the right of all MPs to speak in the House regardless of the wishes of their party leaders. “I continue to believe there will be more parliamentary renewal,” he said. “I believe it’s better to effect change from within than without.” As for Rathgeber’s comments that Conservative backbenchers were like trained seals, controlled by the PMO, Weston said the remark was “disappointing, intemperate and untrue.” Weston said it’s important to keep the big picture in mind and all the good things that have happened in the six years since Harper became prime minister, including having the best

economy and banking system in the world. He had dinner with Harper last week, Weston added. “We talked about his two children, about being a parent, about life and I went away thinking, isn’t it great to have a guy that you can relate to who has been so exemplary in working hard, in doing things right, in aiming really high in accountability and inevitably setting himself up for disappointment when one of the hundreds or thousands of people who work with him falls below that bar. “Whether or not we’re Conservatives, we should be proud that we have somebody who can relate to grassroots Canadians, is an upstanding person with a dedication to community and family. Those are things most Canadians can relate to.”

JOHN Candy, that icon of good-natured Canadian comedy, padded toward her, placing his hands on her shoulders. “We’re doing a sequel and you’re coming with me!” Candy proclaimed. After years of singing six nights a week, taking any acting job that came along and poking her head above the poverty line like a plastic carnival mole venturing upwards only to be whacked again, Beverley Elliott had made it.

RECLAMATION PAGE 21

She’d been flown to Los Angeles, Calif., to reshoot the ending of Who’s Harry Crumb? The 1989 comedy was intended to be a TriStar franchise with Candy playing his version of a gumshoe and Elliott as his sidekick. “Unfortunately, the movie didn’t do well enough to merit a sequel,” Elliott says. “It’s one of those many times in a career where you think, ‘Oh, this is it, this is where everything’s going to break open. And then you realize, after 30 years being in the business it never really breaks open, you just keep plugging along.” Best known for her recurring role as Granny on the reinvented fairy tale Once Upon a Time, Elliott is set to take the stage June 23 at the Arts Club Theatre for a celebration of Canadian musicals as part of Touchstone Theatre’s In Tune Conference. Two weeks before her performance at the Arts Club, Elliott is still trying to memorize “A Day with Julia” from the Norm Foster/Leslie Arden murder mystery comedy The Last Resort.

“I’m happily going to be a part of it, but I’m more at home singing Carole King songs,” she says. “I’m learning the song for the show, it has like a zillion words.” The song is about the singer’s desire to punch her prim and proper sister in the face. The sentiment is far removed from a childhood in Listowel, Ont., where the young songstress performed acoustic experiments by singing Sunday school songs into the chasms beneath stairwells. “I just imagined myself singing in front of throngs of people,” she says. “I thought, ‘Well, this is normal. . . . As I got older I discovered, ‘Oh, it’s not normal.’” On the Listowel half-acre, normal meant digging potatoes out of the family garden and staying away from the arts as a career. “We were farmers . . . so it was more like, ‘Just do what your sisters did,’” she recalls.

A18 - North Shore News - Friday, June 14, 2013

Property Taxes Are Due by Tuesday, July 2, 2013

Some important things to remember about your property taxes:

Notices of the current real property tax levies have now been mailed. Any property owner who has not received a tax statement should immediately contact their municipal tax office. All owners are responsible for payment of 2013 taxes regardless of whether or not a tax notice is received. New owners must ensure taxes are paid (by themselves or the previous owner). If there is any doubt, please check with your municipality.

There are convenient ways to pay

To avoid lengthy lineups at Municipal Hall please attempt to make payments through telephone banking, internet banking, or in person at a financial institution. If paying your taxes at a financial institution please allow at least two business days for processing your payment and retain proof of payment. If paying by telephone/internet banking please allow at least two business days for processing your payment and retain proof of payment. Payment received by a financial institution on the due date and future dated by the financial institution (next business day) will be considered late and subject to a penalty. Cheques postdated to Tuesday, July 2, 2013 or earlier are accepted and should be received in our office prior to July 2, 2013. Postdated cheques will be processed by the bank on or after the date that you have indicated. Taxpayers are encouraged to deliver or mail payments as soon as possible to ensure payment is received on time. If a cheque is returned by your bank for any reason, the payment will not be considered received and penalties of up to 10%, as well as a returned cheque charge, will be levied.

Don’t forget to claim your Home Owner Grant (HOG)

Application for the Provincial Home Owner Grant may be made whether or not the current taxes are paid. It is to your advantage to submit the HOG application before the tax penalty date of July 2, 2013 to avoid penalty additions on the grant amount.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE HOME OWNER GRANT APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL FOR EACH AND EVERY YEAR IN WHICH YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE GRANT. IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Some banks and credit unions do not accept our paper remittance advice, which is also the Home Owner Grant application. If you are paying your taxes at a bank or credit union, please verify if they will forward the remittance advice/Home Owner Grant application to our office. If they do not accept the Home Owner Grant application, it is important that you mail it to our office or apply online in order to receive the grant and avoid penalty.

Save time. Apply online!

You may claim your Home Owner Grant (if eligible) online for the District of North Vancouver at www.dnv.org/ehog, the District of West Vancouver at www.westvancouver.ca/ehog and the City of North Vancouver at www.cnv.org/ehog. You will need the following reference numbers to access your account: (1) your folio number and (2) your personal access code. You can find both reference numbers on the top portion of your property tax notice.

J. Knutson has long felt a strong connection to North Vancouver’s waterfront. Born and raised on the North Shore, the singer/songwriter’s family history is intertwined with that of the area’s shipbuilding past. Upon Knutson’s grandparents’ arrival on the North Shore in 1918 — by way of England and then Kingston, Ont. — Knutson’s grandfather took a job at Wallace Shipyards, which was to become the Burrard Dry Dock company in 1921. Knutson’s mother, Doris, who was born on East First Street, used to tell him stories of running lunch down to his grandfather — Henry James Robbins (known as Bill) —and staying in the area with her mother and siblings to swim. “(My grandfather) was down in the hulls for a long time, too many years, and that’s what ended up taking his life,” says Knutson, explaining Bill died of asbestosis, the result of

prolonged exposure to asbestos after working with insulation for so many years. Knutson’s father Vic was also employed at the North Vancouver shipyards for a short time, and at a young age, he and Knutson’s uncle were tasked with catching red-hot rivets in buckets, thrown down from the sides of ships in drydock. While Knutson has never worked in shipbuilding himself, he’s still found a way to follow in his grandfather’s and father’s footsteps, having turned a creative eye to North Vancouver’s industrial legacy by collaborating with three local artists on a multimedia art installation, Reclamation, opening today at Deep Cove’s Artemis Gallery. “(Reclamation) is trying to reclaim elements that were important during the lives of those people and the beauty of the things that were left behind, and in most cases unintentionally,” says Knutson. The exhibition features large-scale sculptures created out of found material by Susan and Eric MacDonald, a series of presentday photographs shot at the North Vancouver waterfront by Mike Wakefield, and a corresponding soundscape composed by Knutson. Familiar with Susan through the local art community, Knutson invited she and her son Eric to join him on the project. For their contributions, Susan and Eric sourced materials from the shipyards and old rail systems, incorporating found ties, woods and metals into a variety of pieces including a gigantic See Reclamation page 28

EVEN after 1,000 performances, Jason Forbach still gets emotional when he belts out the last note of the Les Misérables hit “One Day More.” Nearly the entire cast of the popular musical comes together on stage to sing the iconic song at the end of Act I. “You’re facing the audience head on and you see them erupt in front of you as soon as the song hits that final note and it’s such a thrill, it’s such a reinforcing positive thought as to why we do what we do,” photo Kyle Froman Forbach says. “That’s my favourite moment.” THE North American touring production of Les Misérables began the Western Canadian leg of its tour at Vancouver’s Queen The 32-year-old Elizabeth Theatre earlier this week and continues through June 23.

Get Outside Bears are out there too

“In most cases the bear will stop, look at you, and turn away,” he says. In this case, the bear kept walking toward him. Webb was tempted to step to the side of the path to let the bear pass, but because he didn’t have his bear spray with him, he knew it wasn’t a recommended course of action. If the bear was passing after he stepped aside but suddenly became interested in him as it got close, Webb wouldn’t have any real defence against it without the spray. If a bear smells that you have something in your pocket, like food, it might want to explore that, notes Webb. There was only one thing left to do: human dominate the bear. “And that is you put your hands right up in a ‘V,’ take one step forward and shout in your best regimental sergeant major’s voice: ‘Bear, bear, get out of my den!’”explains Webb. In this case, the bear stopped advancing and ran away. Webb is the chairman of the North Shore Black

“There’s so much fear about bears. Bears are a misunderstood and persecuted creature,” he says. The North Shore Black Bear Network has been active for more than 12 years, and Webb says it seems attitudes toward bears are changing. When it first started, the network would receive calls on its bear hotline from residents who sounded panicked because there was a bear in their backyard. Now if they get a call, it’s usually a calm voice reporting a bear in a yard and requesting the network put up some neighbourhood signs about it. “Big difference and big breakthrough,” says Webb. “Change is slowly coming about but it has taken us over a decade.” Bears on the North Shore are pretty savvy about people, he says, but like all bears, they don’t like surprises. Trail users should make an effort to make noise as they move through bear territory. Bear bells are not a bad idea because they let the bears know there’s someone around, says Webb. “You’re better to have bear bells than to surprise the bear with your presence right in front of it.” He adds: “If you’re using the wilderness, you have a responsibility to yourself and the

wildlife to try to understand it a bit.” The following are some basic bear safety tips. ■ Make lots of noise as you move through trail areas. Watch for bear signs, such as droppings, rotten trees torn apart or overturned rocks. If you see a bear far away, just let it continue on its way. If it’s close to you on a trail, stop and let the bear know you’re there. ■ Do not run. Running will signal to the bear that you are probably good prey to chase. Bears are very fast.

BOOK review SEA SALT

by Alison Malone Eathorne, Hilary Malone and Lorna Malone Harbour Publishing, $30

Trail blazers

I

n their new book Sea Salt: Recipes from the West Coast Galley, veteran yacht racer Lorna Malone and her two daughters, chef-in-training Hilary Malone and writer Alison Malone Eathorne, invite readers to set sail on a culinary adventure.

Volunteers pitch in at the Knee Knacker Trail Day on Sunday to help maintain and improve a section of the Baden Powell trail. The event was held in cooperation with the District of North Vancouver. The district provided material and tools and the volunteers provided the helping hands. Trail Day started in 1993 and usually attracts 20-30 volunteers. The Knee Knacker is a 30-mile run along the trail from Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove. It is scheduled for July 13.

The Malone family, who hail from Nanaimo, have been exploring the coast together aboard their sailboat, Aeriel, for more than 20 years. In their new release from Harbour Publishing, they share their favourite recipes alongside the best spots they’ve found to drop anchor and gather ingredients on their frequent trips around Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. They’ve drizzled barbecued Brie bought from Hilary’s Cheese in Cowichan Bay with thyme-infused honey and sprinkled Sea Salt and Caramel Brownies with rock salt from Vancouver Island Salt Co. All recipes can — and have — been made out on the water in the galley kitchen of a sailboat. But you don’t need to know a spinnaker from a mainsail to join in their voyage of discovery. While these recipes are best served with a sea breeze, they can also be enjoyed on dry land — be it campfire cookout, backyard barbecue or poolside brunch. — LAYNE CHRISTENSEN

Reclamation focuses on the waterfront From page 21

candle-lit chandelier, exemplifying their similar approach. Both local natives, Knutson was similarly aware of Wakefield’s artistry. A veteran North Shore News photographer, Wakefield has had access to the shipyards for almost 30 years and has continued to shoot there out of an interest in documenting the changes in the industry, most notably the decline in work and dismantling of the yards. “Documenting most of North Vancouver for the North Shore News, I realize how quickly things can change forever with the next generation never really understanding what went on. Photography is my way of keeping that history in living memory,” he says. Two years ago, Wakefield started an ongoing project to photograph the remaining keel blocks, used in supporting the hulls of vessels in drydock. “The beauty of these large concrete, steel and wood structures with decades of paint, etching and scars are like storybooks telling the tale of decades of hard work by teams of men and women working on the waterfront,” he says. Wakefield is pleased to be part of the exhibition, believing Knutson to have successfully, “threaded together a historically important portal into the past,” he says. “With the talents of the other people in this show, we’ve created a story of sorts, without a beginning or end. It’s more of a take on our lives as people growing up on the North Shore with industry at our doorsteps and what a big part of the community it was,” he adds. For his own contribution to Reclamation, Knutson entered personally uncharted territory.

NEWS photos Mike Wakefield

PHOTOGRAPHS and sculptured pieces help to thread together Reclamation’s exploration of the shipyards.

While he’s played in galleries at art openings and worked on soundtracks for film and dance productions, this is the first project of this nature he’s undertaken. “It was really fun to be able to support the image that was created through the sculpture and the visual art,” he says. “The thing about doing something like this is you really have a clear and distinct image in your mind and a feeling to create the atmosphere or the environment before you start,” he says, contrasting the process with going into the studio to record an album, where

you might have 10 different vignettes or stories that you’re working with. Reclamation was very focused on one aspect of the working waterfront of the North Shore. The soundscape he created, one composition approximately 30 minutes in length that will be looped and broadcast in the gallery, consists of musical passages and themes from his previous albums that he’s built on and expanded, as well as the addition of new sounds. The composition features a blend of strings, woodwinds, percussion, guitars, vocals and electronic treatments, as well as field recordings. “There’s so much you can do with the various programs to be able to really kind of take all that sound that emanates from the waterfront and organize it. Once we organize sound, that becomes music,” he says. The soundscape is available for purchase in CD form at the gallery, serving almost like the show’s program.

Knutson, aided by some backing musicians, will perform excerpts from the work at tonight’s opening reception, being held from 7 to 10 p.m., as well as at a Solstice Celebration of Art and Sound at the gallery next Friday, June 21 from 7-9 p.m. Knutson is grateful to Artemis Gallery owner and curator Shannon Browne for making the exhibition possible. “She was the first person I approached about staging this and she was really keen on the whole idea. . . . She was really instrumental in allowing us to do this and helping us to pull it all together,” he says. Knutson hopes this is just the beginning for Reclamation and hopes to incorporate more mediums in the future, including film (archival and otherwise), poetry, literal stories, etc., potentially even finding a home for the installation at a potential future North Vancouver waterfront museum that’s under discussion. “I hope we’ll be able to continue this process,” he says. Apart from Reclamation, Knutson, who also teaches at Simon Fraser University, has a busy summer ahead of him. He recently released a new solo album, Ravens Reach, which he plans to launch officially in the early fall. The North Shore Celtic Ensemble, which he co-founded and serves as co-artistic director of, is presenting a launch party for their new album, Troubadours, Saturday, June 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Shipbuilder’s Square. The group also has a gig that day at the North Shore Hospice Strawberry Cream Tea from 1 to 3 p.m., is playing in Whistler over Canada Day weekend and will head to Scotland for the Aberdeen International Youth Festival, July 26-Aug. 3.

Elliott’s evolution as a performer began after moving to Vancouver in her early 20s. “Up until that point the only time I’d been in front of an audience was when I was with my friends in college. We’d have a few too many drinks and they’d push me on stage.” “When I got to Vancouver I did sing a lot in piano lounges in Vancouver and gay bars.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE

mattie à la mode

Maxi dress is long on style

DEAR Mattie:

What styles of dresses are in fashion? Trendy in Ambleside

Dear Ambleside: A variety of dress styles are in fashion for summer. Dresses are very popular this season. All you ladies should seriously look at investing in a few dresses. Yes, think of it as an investment. Dresses are for all occasions, they are not a formal outfit anymore. I love dresses because they are a comfortable way to present yourself, without looking ordinary. Almost every style is in fashion, even the LBD (little black dress). The silhouette of the dress this season is hourglass. This is a fit and flare look. It is not fitted, it is shaped. Think of it as stepping into a dress and not squeezing into a dress. This shape can be extreme or subtle, the choice is yours. As long as there is a clear hourglass shape, the dress is in fashion. Slouchy, hanging dresses are not in fashion. But, if you like the softer look, then update the dress with a belt. Both skinny and wide belts are trending and will create the hourglass silhouette. The trendiest dresses are the bold ones. They are bold in print and shape. Prints are graphic and range from large flowers to large checks and stripes. The idea here is go big and loud. It is a cheeky and sophisticated look, as long as you can pull it off. This dress requires the right complementary accessories that play down a bit of the boldness, but don’t take away from it. It is a modern dress that can be made from softer fabrics, but really should be made with a stiffer fabric, but not heavy. The stiffer fabric allows for the angular hourglass shape.

Softer looks are also in fashion. These dresses are fluid and looser. Most of these dresses will have some kind of belt to create the trendy shape of the season. They come in lighter fabrics so they can flow. Prints are softer in colour and image. The print is not detailed, it is faded or blurred. This soft dress is most popular in the maxi length. Longer dresses are very trendy this season. The maxi dress is versatile and can be layered. This dress is the easiest way to be comfortable and trendy. This look goes from shopping to the office. It also goes from day to evening. The most interesting feature of this summer’s dresses are that many of the trendy elements can go from bold to soft. The best example is the silhouette, which can be angular or rounded, but it has to be shaped. Other trends to look for are the prints, which also go from bold to soft with their colour and design. Solid colour is not in fashion, unless you are colour blocking. Ruffles, lace, and embroidery are trends that also fall into this category. Ruffles can be a discrete trim as well as an all-over feature. Eyelets can be small and delicate or large enough that they look like huge cutouts on the dress. Embroidery can be intricate as well as 3D. This season you might have to make a stand with your personal expression. There isn’t much of a middle road. Extreme is trendy. Adieu, Mattie

Larissa Stefani of Lloyd & Wolf is a finalist in the Independent Handbag Designer Awards. According to a release, the IHDA’s are known in the industry as the Academy Awards of Handbags. The global accessories event recognizes emerging and established designers and is hosted by the online database and shopping network Handbag Designer 101. The competition is in its seventh year. Winners will be announced June 19 during an event at the School of Visual Arts Theatre in New York City. According to Stefani, hers is the only Canadian brand in the finals, selected from among 1,200 applicants from North and South America, Europe and Asia. Her Lloyd & Wolf label features Italian leathers and signature studs and spikes that give her limited-run handbags a rock ’n’ roll edge.

OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS FOR 1ST TIME BUYERS

The drive to serve you better. When visiting an auto body shop, you want to feel confident knowing you’ve brought your vehicle to a place you can trust. That’s why every year ICBC independently surveys approximately 60,000 customers who visit ICBC-accredited c.a.r. shop VALET facilities for repairs to find out which shops are delivering customers, like you, with top-quality service and repairs. This year, 15 top-performing shops in BC earned the AutocheX Award for achieving customer satisfaction scores in the top five percent of auto body shops in North America. These shops provided on-time deliveries, high standards for repairs, and kept customers informed throughout the repair process.

Congratulations to the winner in your area: Taylormotive Service Ltd.

According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Vancouver has the highest average rents in all of Canada, pushing first time purchasers to look for ownership alternatives in areas like the Tri-cities. This forward-thinking generation of buyers is looking for areas where they can enjoy more space without losing walkable conveniences that come with downtown living. MOSAIC’s FREMONT BLUE, for example, offers a true live, work, play neighbourhood – creating a unique community identity supported by a mix of amenities.

Significant incentives are now providing powerful motivations, which support BC’s first time buyers, offering them a chance to own, not rent. According to Geoff Duyker of MOSAIC, “The biggest hurdle for most first-time homebuyers is the down payment. In response, we’re hosting MOSAIC’s 1st TIME BUYERS SALES EVENT for the month of June, where first timers can take advantage of a $10,000 rebate and a 5% down payment. This offering truly makes owning more accessible than renting.” A visit to a MOSAIC Home Store will provide more information and insight.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING First timers can now take advantage of mortgage rates as low as 2.89%. If or when mortgage rates increase by – for example, 1% – a household making $65,000 a year will see a reduction to the mortgage amount for which they qualify by $40,000. With this anticipated reality, many will not be able to find the home they now want if they choose to wait. These record-low mortgage rates and the corresponding purchasing power have created an opportunity to purchase a home in one of the world’s most livable regions.

Canadian hair habits surveyed

street style

MORE than one-third of Canadian women have worked from home, skipped a party or worn a hat because of a bad hair day, a recent survey found.

The Angus-Reid poll was commissioned by hair-care company John Frieda and conducted in February. The survey also found that more than half of Canadian women (58 per cent) colour their hair. More women in Quebec colour their hair than any other province (66 per cent) and British Columbia reported the least number of women who colour their hair (49 per cent). Of women who currently colour their hair, 51 per cent colour their hair regularly at home. Almost half of Canadian women (45 per cent) reported having straight hair, 39 per cent said wavy and 15 per cent said curly. Nearly a third of women with curly hair said the biggest challenge they have with their hair is it gets frizzy.

“I am definitely very passionate on the subject because it something that I have always struggled with growing up,” she says. The 26-year-old says that when she was growing up she was often criticized because of her aspirations. “Kids would tell me that I would never become a successful singer and that I was no good. “Even though they had never even heard me sing. Being told this time and time again made me angry and frustrated.” Instead of letting the negativity bring her down, Sarah K used it as motivation. The North Vancouverite has since gone on to perform at various venues around the Lower Mainland. Last night Sarah K and her band the Soul Collective, performed at the Amanda Todd Legacy fundraising concert at the Calabash Bistro with 2013 Juno nominee Elaine Lil’Bit Shepherd and MC Static. The show completed a two-part concert series with all of the proceeds going to the Amanda Todd Legacy Memorial Fund. “I know that a lot of kids are suffering in regards to bullying. I think it’s important that we raise awareness about these issues,” she says. “I know I went through it and

sometimes it is hard to bring it up, especially when you are being judged.” The North Vancouver-native began writing music when she was 13-years-old. Her first live performance came two-years later at Capilano University. Sarah K says since taking the stage as a teenager her vocal ability has improved significantly. “I’ve found my voice,” she says. “I am much more confident on stage, and because of that I am able to connect with my audience.” The Argyle secondary graduate has been influenced by artists such as Alicia Keys, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Lauren Hill and Joss Stone. “Mariah Carey talks about overcoming obstacles in life so she definitely inspired me to write songs,” Sarah K says. “I love the sound of Lauren Hill as well . . . I like to write about everything, and things that people go through every day.” Last year her career got a big boost when Chris Steffler of Mercury Management and Element-80 Records signed her. “He (Steffler) helped me get my foot in the door,” she says. “I needed professional guidance and he was able to provide that.” In July Sarah K will be releasing her debut album, All My Life. “I started recording the album three

Royalties from song ‘Fly’ donated to charities From page 36

years ago,” she says. “I would say each song was a different experiment. I’ve evolved in those three years and you will notice that.” One of the songs on the album “Fly” shares her experiences of being bullied and aims to inspire listeners. “It’s a song that I wrote about going through situations where people don’t want to see you succeed,” Sarah K says. “It’s about believing in yourself.” She plans on donating all the royalties from the song to the Amanda Todd’s Legacy Fund and the CKNW Orphans’ Fund. The fundraiser was not the first time Sarah K has used her musical talents in a philanthropic way. In 2010 she headlined Cops for Cancer at The Cellar nightclub. That same year she participated in the Miss BC Pageant which raised money for the Cops for Cancer charity. According to Sarah K, her most memorable performance

came earlier this year when she was invited to perform at the Sage Awards, an event that celebrates the accomplishments of Vancouver’s community leaders. “Evander Holyfield was the special guest speaker, as part of his cross Canada anti-bullying tour. Carol Todd, Amanda Todd’s mother, was the other guest of honour,” she says. “I was invited to sing my anti-bullying song “Fly,” as it was the theme of the evening. I remember people being touched by the lyrics and message of my song.” “I have never been so emotionally connected to an audience until that evening. It changed me as a singer,” she adds. Sarah K and her new band the Soul Collective connected in 2012. She says finding the right mix of musicians who are supportive and committed can be difficult even in a musically diverse community such as Vancouver. “I am so blessed that I have the band members that I have,” she says. “We all have the same goals and I think that is great. It’s been a great experience so far.”

Sarah K credits social media for allowing her to connect and collaborate with various music industry professionals from around the world. Her Facebook page has more than 1,400 likes. “I’ve collaborated with a producer in Germany and with a producer in Louisiana, and a rapper in Washington D.C., and it’s all due to social media,” she says. “Ten years ago I wouldn’t have made those connections.” Sarah K’s song “Hands Up!” has received airplay on Star 94 in Atlanta, Kiss 108 in Boston, Magic 1152 in Manchester and 105 Capital FM in Yorkshire. While she admits she’s a bit of a glamour diva, the singer says she has another side to her that most people might not expect. “I’m a nature girl too,” she says. “I don’t think people know that about me and they might be a bit surprised. There is this other side of me that loves nature and loves to hike.” For more information on Sarah K visit sarahk.ca or follow her on Twitter: @SarahKSings.

FILM

This is the End parties like there’s no tomorrow

■ This is the End. Written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Starring James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel. Rating: 6 (out of 10)

Julie Crawford Contributing Writer

SETH Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Jonah Hill and a dozen or so other celebs play themselves in This Is The End, a film which gives equal weight to the issues of mortality and manboobs.

We wouldn’t expect anything less (or more?) of Rogen and writing/directing partner Evan Goldberg, whose experiences at Vancouver’s Point Grey High School became the foundation for 2007’s Superbad. Here the characters are older, but precious little wiser when confronted with a Book of Revelations scenario come true. The film opens with Jay Baruchel landing in L.A., wearing his Montreal Canadiens cap and an air of artistic contempt for the trappings of Hollywood. He’s jealous of buddy Seth Rogen’s success, but would much rather hang out — smoking weed and playing video games all day — than head to James Franco’s housewarming party. But party they do, where a coked-up Michael Cera gets serviced in the bathroom and Rihanna sings a “take yo panties off” duet with Craig Robinson. Jason Segel laments his niceguy typecasting with Kevin Hart, and Emma Watson expounds on the merits of Forrest Gump. Just around the time that Paul Rudd shows up late with a bottle of bubbly, all hell breaks loose. The men are forced to run the gauntlet of downed electrical wires, sinkholes and flying debris. Franco’s landscaped front yard becomes a direct route to the fiery pits of hell. “I don’t want to die at James Franco’s house,” whines Jay. James, Seth and Jay hole up in chez Franco with a jumpy Craig Robinson and an overly solicitous Jonah Hill. PartySee Boys page 41

Attendees were each given a numbered ‘Golden Key’, one of which will be the lucky key to a

new one-bedroom condominiumvalued at roughly 300 thousand dollars – in the state-of-the art 24 storey building. Throughout the day, Seylynn Village saw over 1000 people come through the presentation centre. At one point the line up was 400 people long and was seen backed up from Fern St. to the tip of East Keith Road. A total of 850 keys were given out during the afternoon.

The Seylynn Village project is part of a re-vitalization of the Lower Lynn area and designed to improve the neighbourhood’s livability. As well as the three towers, the development also includes an amenity clubhouse with a 25 meter swimming pool, hot tub, steam room, sauna, fitness centre, yoga studio and lounge in a pedestrianfriendly environment. The project developer, Denna

Homes, will be giving out a total of 5,000 keys and the contest will close when the final key is given out.

Village. “Sales of condos have been brisk. We’ve sold about sixty-five percent of this first tower.”

“Offering the ‘Golden Key’ free home promotion is an innovative way the partners of Denna Homes could say ‘thank you’ to the District of North Vancouver and its residents for welcoming them into the community,” said Nick Askew, president of Pacesetter Marketing, the company marketing Seylynn

People still have chance to win a free condo that will be soon announced through advertisements in various newspapers. Seylynn Village is now officially open to the public daily from 12PM - 5PM except Fridays. Appointments can be made to register at the Seylynn Village sales centre by calling 604-980-5000.

DIRECTOR Stanley Kubrick (left) setting up a shot during production of his film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb in 1963. Photographer Weegee talks with actor Peter Sellers after the shooting of a pie-fight scene which Kubrick never used in the finished film.

RARE SET OF WEEGEE PHOTOGRAPHS ON VIEW AT PRESENTATION HOUSE

Camera atomica

■ Strangelove’s Weegee / Zhang Yaxin: Model Operas. Presentation House Gallery. Opening reception tonight at 7 p.m. For more information on the exhibit visit presentationhousegallery.org.

John Goodman jgoodman@nsnews.com

THE unlikely collaborative relationship between tabloid photographer Weegee and film director Stanley Kubrick is explored as part of a new exhibit of photographs at Presentation House Gallery. Curated by John O’Brian, a UBC professor specializing in modernist art history, the show is built around a series of rarely seen photographs Weegee took on set at Shepperton Studios in London, England during the production of Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove in the spring of 1963. O’Brian talked to the North Shore News about the exhibit and Weegee’s involvement in Kubrick’s classic film. North Shore News: How did the Weegee exhibit come about? Is it related to your ongoing research on nuclear war media and Camera Atomica? John O’Brian: It is but it was also by luck. As so many things are when one is working in the archives. I was doing research in New York for Camera Atomica. I’ve done research in Japan and the States and Europe and elsewhere and I was at the International Center of Photography which is where the Weegee photographs are that are in the exhibition. I put in “Nuclear” as I was working in their archives and up popped a hundred photographs by Weegee. I thought, ‘Well, this is a mistake, where did these come from?’ I’d never seen them before and only two or three of them had ever been shown before. So I asked for them to be brought out and looked at them and realized it was an astonishing group of photographs and that was the genesis of the show. North Shore News: Both Weegee and Kubrick were photojournalists in the ’40s — they must have crossed each other’s paths at some point. John O’Brian: They not only crossed paths, Kubrick hugely

admired Weegee. Kubrick was still a teenager when he got a job as a photographer at Look Magazine. By then Weegee was famous — he even called himself ‘The Famous’ and actually stamped that on the back of many of his photographs. He’d already brought out the book Naked City in 1946, which to this day remains the most successful, in terms of numbers of copies sold, photography book in the United States, outdoing Walker Evans and all the others. JOHN O’BRIAN Weegee knew him first of all by reputation and then knew him personally and admired him so there was that relationship. I’m not sure if they had much of a relationship in the ’50s at that time. Kubrick started to make films and Weegee pulled away from a lot of the work he had been doing before and spent time in Hollywood.

and

North Shore News: How did Weegee do out in Hollywood? I didn’t realize he made films. John O’Brian: He did, he was a filmmaker himself. You can see bits and pieces of them on the Internet. They’re not particularly strong. It wasn’t his forte but he was fascinated by the medium and also fascinated by celebrity. A big chunk of his work are celebrity photographs — not in the ’40s when he was doing the Lower East homicide crime scene and stuff that was suitable for the tabloids — but later. He’d sell some to Vogue and he’d sell some elsewhere because he was Weegee the Famous. He spent time in Hollywood and had bit parts in films, very bit parts. There was one film where he had a major role that somebody made of him in the mid-’60s. It’s almost unwatchable. It’s about a highly sex-craved photographer and Weegee is playing himself — because he was a character — and I think that did a lot of damage to his reputation. Weegee’s great work is what he did in the ’30s and ’40s and by the time Dr. Strangelove came along he might have been remembered fondly but was not taken particularly seriously and that may be why the photographs weren’t shown. He did a

presentation set for Kubrick which I’ve seen there in the Kubrick archives in London — because I went over there to do work in the archives — and there’s another set in the International Center of Photography. Neither have been shown. There’s a big Kubrick show that’s been traveling on and off in different places that started in Frankfurt many years ago. I saw it in Paris, it’s been in Los Angeles and it’s on each of Kubrick’s 13 films as well as his unmade Napoleon film. When it comes to Strangelove there’s a couple of images of Weegee and a couple of his photographs that are there but you don’t get a sense of the large number of photographs that he took. He actually had been allowed — I’m sure he had to get permission on this — to send a couple of photographs off for use in newspapers. Nobody knew how to do that better than Weegee did because he was the master of it. He’d develop his photographs in the back of his car and he’d chase fires and homicides with a police radio he had in his bedroom and in his car. I actually bought online on eBay a couple of photographs that had been newspaper photographs. He must have got permission to do that from Columbia Pictures. One of them is quite badly damaged and the other isn’t and we’re putting both of them in the show. In both cases it shows Peter Sellers being wiped down, once by a man and another by a woman, of all the cream pie and custard that had been thrown at him. Those haven’t been circulated widely and I paid virtually nothing for them because they’re not classic Weegee photographs. The classic ones are a homicide with a shoe in the gutter. These are something else so there was not a lot of interest in them. North Shore News: When you found the photos in the archives were they negatives you were looking at? John O’Brian: No I’m looking at the prints. North Shore News: Is that everything he shot? John O’Brian: No, many were repetitive. We’re showing something like 32 in this exhibition. We’ve taken the 32 most interesting ones to my eye, because I chose them, at least another 35 that are very close to those subjects and then another 30 photographs that we didn’t include. We took the crème de la crème and that’s what we’re showing. See Duo page 41

FILM

Duo made very strange bedfellows

From page 40

North Shore News: As far as Weegee’s own approach goes do you know if he took a lot of images when he photographed a subject? John O’Brian: He was working with a Speed Graphic and so you were limited in the number of photographs you could take. He was working with flash because that had been insisted upon by Kubrick. On the set every time he took a photograph you had a little mini atomic explosion going off. I think that’s one of the reasons he got invited on the set because Kubrick wanted him to take flash photographs. He didn’t have to by that time because the technology had changed. He was using flash with a Speed Graphic 4 by 5 camera and you couldn’t take a lot of photographs with that because you had to change the plate and put in another bulb. North Shore News: Kubrick was thinking of Weegee circa 1930s, 1940s. John O’Brian: That’s the look I think he wanted. That noir look, that in-your-face, point-blank, extreme contrast look for the film which, of course, was shot in black and white. The War Room where half of it takes place is really dark but with highlights and that’s what he wanted. North Shore News: Kubrick was famous for his control but this was also one of his first independent productions wasn’t it? John O’Brian: It was but there he was working with Columbia. It may have been partly the cost but it was absolutely the look he wanted as well — once he decided on what his approach to the film was going to be and that took a bit of time. It was going to be a nightmare comedy but with a noir look with those sorts of tensions and contrasts that he was so attentive to. In every film he did there’s a look that nobody else has for each one and they’re not the same as the other. Partly cost as it would have been less expensive but also for the aesthetics. North Shore News: At that point in his career his motivation seems like an obvious reaction against Hollywood and its way of making movies because Strangelove was the second film he made in succession in England after Lolita. Two very American films shot in exile. John O’Brian: He loathed Hollywood. He also was frightened of nuclear war and so he thought London would be a place to live. While he was shooting Lolita he came to know it and like it and moved his family over. He might have gone back to the United States except he really wanted Peter Sellers for

the lead role and Sellers was engaged in court proceedings with a divorce and was not permitted to leave England. North Shore News: Kubrick seems to have maintained a very anti-American stance even though he is still fascinated by the U.S. in his material. John O’Brian: He’s such a complicated mind it would never be something as simple as that. He deeply feared nuclear war and you might think he is going to make anti-war films but no, that’s not what he does — he looks at the anatomy of war in his films and the protocols and the apparatus of the state and I think it’s similar to his relationship to the United States.

North Shore News: I checked production history during that year and, other than Kubrick, only Godard (on Bande à part/Band of Outsiders) shot in black and white, everything else released in 1964 was in colour. Was that for aesthetics or control of the medium or overall cost or a combination of all those things? John O’Brian: I think it’s because it’s the aesthetic that people don’t want to see. Now it’s possible to shoot in saturated technicolour and it can be done more cheaply than it was done before. It was so expensive when it was initially used in The Wizard of Oz (in 1939). We were through the noir period, we’re into the ’60s at that point through the Italian cinema of neorealism and the nouvelle vague of Truffaut and others, they’re now becoming successful enough they can start using colour. It’s interesting that Godard continued to use black and white. North Shore News: I guess production costs couldn’t have been too much of a factor for Kubrick as he would have to bring Weegee over at considerable expense to do his job on set. John O’Brian: Yes and he paid him a lot. Weegee was not a major figure on the set. It was a substantial budget even then and Kubrick became increasingly famous for spending and spending and spending. Weegee was paid £750 which was a lot of money in those days and they would have to fly him over and put him up. He was there for two months. He says in an interview he was invited to come for two or three weeks and seven weeks later he is still there so obviously Kubrick liked having him around. North Shore News: Weegee’s images were never shown. Did Kubrick have specific plans for them? John O’Brian: You know that’s very interesting. I think he wanted him on the set and part of the deal must have been he would provide Kubrick — and that must have been a side deal that Kubrick made with Columbia — with a full set of prints of what he took and

Typically somebody who is doing publicity stills will concentrate on the actors rather than on the director whereas Weegee was free to shoot anybody. He shot a lot of Kubrick. — Strangelove’s Weegee is being shown at Presentation House Gallery with Zhang Yaxin: Model Operas, an exhibition of colour photographs by Chinese photographer Zhang Yaxin that vividly record the actors and scenery of the Communist Party-sanctioned “model operas.” Several events are also planned in conjunction with the exhibit: Screenings: — Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) by Stanley Kubrick Wednesday, July 10, at 7 p.m. Empire Theatres Esplanade, 200 Esplanade Ave, North Vancouver. — Yang Ban Xi, (2006) by Yang Ting Yuen and Weegee’s New York, (1948) by Weegee Wednesday, July 17 at 7 p.m. Pacific Cinematheque, 1131 Howe Street, Vancouver. Talk: Curator of Strangelove’s Weegee — John O’Brian, Saturday, June 22, 1 p.m. at Presentation House Gallery.

JFK assassination delayed release The first test screening of Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb was to have taken place on Nov. 22, 1963 but the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on that date pushed back the official release of the film to Jan. 29, 1964. “One line by Slim Pickens: “a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff” — was dubbed to change “Dallas” to “Vegas,” since Dallas was the city where Kennedy was killed. The original reference to Dallas survives in the French-subtitled version of the film. The assassination also serves as another possible reason why the piefight scene was cut. In the scene, after Muffley takes a pie in the face, General Turgidson exclaims: “Gentlemen! Our gallant young president has been struck down in his prime!” Editor Anthony Harvey stated that (the scene) would have stayed, except that Columbia Pictures were horrified, and thought it would offend the president’s family.” — Wikipedia

crasher Danny McBride shows up later. Actors prove to be the most useless survivalists ever, duct-taping cracks in the foundation and using objets d’art to keep out looters. It’s an earthquake, it’s a zombie apocalypse: only Jay equates what’s going down as a sign of end times, the rapture. One by one the men decide to try and be better people, in order to be plucked into heaven. “Dear God, it’s me: Jonah Hill, from Moneyball . . . ” It ’aint easy: Craig claims to have gouged out a man’s eyeballs; James Franco’s sin was having sex with a drugged-up Lindsay Lohan, who thought he was Jake Gyllenhaal. While they wait for redemption, the boys divvy up the food and drink, film a homemade sequel to Pineapple Express, discuss keeping a “rapey” vibe out of the house when Emma Watson/ Hermione shows up, and do the remainder of the drugs. Penis humour is everywhere: in the artwork, on the frighteningly endowed demons, and it rises as the topic of just about every conversation, including a heated exchange between Danny and James about masturbation etiquette. This is balanced by pseudospiritual discussions about faith, heaven, the trinity: “it’s three in one, like neopolitan ice cream,” explains Jay. Running throughout is the deteriorating friendship between Seth and Jay, as Seth assimilates into the shallow trappings of Tinseltown and Jay represents the “last weird connection to his shi#*y Canadian life.” The energy and the self-deprecating gags are steady for the film’s first three-quarters and it’s fun watching these actors keep it together under ridiculous circumstances. But, inevitably, watching 30-somethings get high and obsess about masturbation gets a little tiresome, if not a little weird. And by the time Channing Tatum makes his surprising cameo, we’re king of praying for the end ourselves.

She was a devoted friend who always took care to stay in touch or help out when it was required. She will be missed. Mary’s family would like to thank Pauline Thomas for all the help and support she provided to Mary over the last few years. Thanks also to Dr. Maryam Zeineddı´n for the care she provided to Mary, as well as to the staff at Evergreen House who treated Mary with kindness, professionalism and dignity.

Dorothy May Tennant (nee Rolls) passed away peacefully on Friday, June 7, 2013 at Mariposa Gardens in Osoyoos after seven years of Alzheimer’s. Dorothy was always a kind and peaceful person. She had a wonderful life with Duncan. They would have celebrated 70 years of happily married life this year. Dorothy was born in Hedley, BC on April 9, 1923. She moved to Vancouver with her family in 1931 where she attended and graduated from Kitsilano High School which is where she met Duncan. They were married at Canadian Memorial Church in 1943. Dorothy is survived by her husband Duncan; sons Bruce and Bob (Senka); seven grandchildren Chantal (Clint) Melisa, Daniel, David, Oliver, Victoria and Michael as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son John David in 1983. Dorothy and Dunc traveled extensively and went on fifteen medical missions with the Medical Missions International Society. They worked in places as diverse as Rwanda, the Caribbean and Central and South America. Dorothy would fit hundreds of artificial eyes while Dunc examined and fitted thousands of pairs of glasses.

braking news

British company TVR not dead yet

Behind The Wheel David Chao

Brendan McAleer Contributing Writer

MOST people don’t think too much about their car’s tires — all they know is that they’re round, hold air, and essentially keep the car on the ground.

A biweekly roundup of automotive news, good, bad and just plain weird:

www.taylor motive.com

In fact, most people don’t even care about them, until it’s time to replace the tires, then they make comments like “Gosh, my tires are worn out, now I have to replace them!” and “it’s a hassle to get a whole set of new tires.” As a result, people just end up just searching for the “best” deal, often getting the cheapest tires possible. If one would stop and think about their tires a little longer, they would realize that they are the only contact their vehicle has with the road. Therefore, stopping distance, cornering ability, ride comfort, and fuel efficiency are all affected by the tire choice — to a significant degree I might add. The most sophisticated braking and steering systems could be rendered useless by inferior tires. But by the same token, a good set of tires can considerably improve every aspect of even the most basic automobile. Now that we’ve acknowledged the importance of tires, how do we go about making the correct choice? As with any purchasing decision, knowledge is power. The first step is determining what size of

diameter, compound type and character. Let’s look at two examples:

TVR lives again Once based out of the popular seaside resort of Blackpool in jolly old Blighty, specialty sportscar maker TVR has since slid into obscurity with the ignominious flop of a child’s ice cream falling on the pavement. Sad stuff, as it was once the maker of some of the most bonkers-looking machines to ever slide sideways into a hedge and catch on fire. These were bizarre fibreglass concoctions with highpowered straight-six engines (and occasionally V-8s), and they weren’t easy to drive, no sir. On the other hand, they did have a character and panache that’s sadly waning in the automotive world. Happy news then, that the TVR badge seems to be making a comeback. While there are no actual sheets flying off concepts yet, a new entrepreneur, one Les Edgar, has purchased the brand and seems to be revving things up — the website is back online, and there are indications that a new car is in the works. This news that the company is now back in the hands of an enthusiastic U.K. businessman would no doubt please the late Trevor

defined by a single number and restricted by your feet size, tires are exponentially more complicated with an infinite combination of size,

Honda builds racer fit for fastest soccer moms From page 48

Wilkinson, who founded TVR in 1947. Victory, battle and tragedy at the Canadian Grand Prix Last weekend saw the beautiful city of Montreal become a battleground for top-tier racing: Formula One came to town. After some interesting hijinks during qualifying, the race turned out to be an easy win for whiz-kid Sebastian Vettel in his Red Bull/Infiniti car, running out ahead early on and maintaining a lead through to the finish. Infiniti must be very happy that their sponsorship is working out so well, victorywise. The real battles were farther back in the pack, particularly between Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who squeaked by Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes-Benz to steal second. Not necessarily a clean victory for the Spaniard: rumours here of a pass under a yellow flag, which is a definite no-no. Sadly, while there would be much champagne sprayed post-race, there was also terrible news. A volunteer track worker was

crushed by a crane while attempting to remove a crashed F1 racer from one of the corners. Details are slim, but apparently the veteran track worker slipped and fell out of sight of the moving crane, and was caught under its wheels. It’s worth remembering that in the fraternity of speed, it’s not just the drivers who risk everything, but the support workers who do a far less glamorous, and similarly dangerous job. Honda enters minivan in Pikes Peak Hill Climb Honda seems to be increasing their involvement in motorsport these days, and you could hardly claim they’re not being creative. Their entry for a race-bred machine to tackle the dangerous and lofty Pikes Peak time-trial challenge? A Honda Odyssey. This rollcage-prepped, turbocharged van isn’t the kind of thing you’d schlep the soccer team around in either. It’s got huge fat tires, a racing suspension and 550 horsepower to hurtle it up the hill. Naturally, you know what I’m thinking — why not a production-model Odyssey Si for

the street? Just because life requires parking a minivan in the driveway doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun too. Electric Mercedes-Benz sets Nürburgring record When it comes to performance-oriented electric vehicles, Tesla has been soaking up the spotlight for too long. Let’s turn that light on a growing battle between two traditional manufacturers, locked in combat on the legendary Nürburgring. Audi threw down the gauntlet with its Etron R8 — an electric-only version of Ingolstadt’s supercar. With a lap time hovering around the low eight-minute range, the R8 made its bones as a fairly impressive machine, though slower than its gasoline-powered compatriots. However, Mercedes has firmly established

P225/60R16 97T and LT265/70R17 121R. Admittedly, these appear a bit like a code, but after breaking the measurements down, it’s not so bad. The prefix, a P or LT, simply indicates that the tire is designed for either passenger car or light truck application. Some SUVs and smaller trucks are fitted with P rated tires for improved ride comfort, but if you are routinely carrying heavier loads, an LT rated tire would suit your needs better. The next group of digits, 225 and 265 in our examples, tells you how wide the cross-section of the tire is in millimetres. The bigger the number, the wider the tire. But keep in mind, this measurement is from the widest point to widest point and not just the surface of the tread. The following number

is the aspect ratio. This tells you the height of the sidewall as a percentage of the tire’s width. So, the sidewall of our passenger tire is 60 per cent of 225 mm, or 135 mm. Understanding the aspect ratio becomes most important when changing wheel sizes, which we will discuss in more detail later. The R lets you know that it is a radial tire as opposed to a bias-ply tire, which would be designated by a D. Bias-ply tires are no longer used in passenger vehicle applications. The rim size in inches is noted next. In our examples, the car has 16-inch wheels and the truck has 17s. Obviously, a 16-inch tire will not fit on a 17-inch wheel or vice versa. Next is the load-carrying capacity. As you can see in our example, the LT has a higher load rating at 121 versus 97 for the passenger tire. It is highly recommended that you never select a tire with

a lower load rating than the manufacturer’s specifications. But as mentioned earlier, it is acceptable to increase the rating if you are often carrying a lot of weight. The last item is the tire’s speed rating. This reflects the tire’s ability to dissipate heat. Driving at high speeds for extended periods of time, like on long highway commutes, creates heat buildup within the tire. Too much heat increases the likelihood of a failure. Again, do not fit a tire with a lower speed rating than the one recommended, but if the bulk of your driving is on the highway, feel free to move up a rating or two. Now that we’ve broken down the basic ingredients of a tire, we need to determine what makes one better than another. Well, that largely depends on your specific needs.

They did so with their SLS Electric Drive, which is . . . well, you can figure it out. With all-wheel drive and the equivalent of 751 h.p., the electric SLS is quite the machine, though it should be noted that it’s handily trumped by the normally powered version (which is also half the price). Still, with carmakers focusing on electric performance as well as efficiency, it’s good news for our inevitably battery-powered future.

Tire replacement an opportunity, not a hassle From page 49

Some questions you need to ask yourself are: would you prefer a harder, more performance oriented tire or a softer, more comfortable one. Also, how do you rate the importance of fuel economy, tread wear and noise reduction. Tire companies have designed tread patterns that can greatly increase one or more of these aspects. Aside from the amount of highway driving you do and how much cargo you carry, it’s wise to consider the area you live in. If you live in a part of the country where snow is inevitable, then snow tires are recommended. Having a good set of snows in the winter will allow you to equip a more focused summer tire the rest of the year. An all-season tire will offer a moderate level of traction in all conditions, but is a compromise to the optimum capabilities of the dedicated tires. For performance seekers, upgrading you tires offers a quick and cost effective

means for improvement. The most common practice is plus sizing. This is the concept of increasing the wheel size by an inch or two while lowering the aspect ratio of the tire. This makes the sidewall shorter and more rigid. Typically, the width of the wheel and tire are also increased. Mixed with high performance rubber, the driver will notice quicker steering response and cornering ability. In fact, the level of performance you can gain can be quite astonishing — something people don’t think about when trying to upgrade or update their older cars. Using the example car tire size, we could switch to a 235/50R17, or even up to a 245/45R18 from the original 225/60R16 size. As you can see, the width of the tire and wheel diameter are increased while the aspect ratio is decreased to keep the tire’s overall diameter the same. Keeping the overall diameter as close to the original as possible is important in order to maintain sufficient ground clearance, appropriate driveline gearing and accurate speedometer/odometer readings. Large changes in diameter could also affect the car’s ABS, traction control

and vehicle stability systems. The last point to consider is price. Tires may seem quite costly, but you need to keep those costs in perspective. You will likely only need to purchase a new set of tires once or twice over a car’s lifespan. You will definitely need to change the oil and other fluids many times. From that point of view, prices come much more in line with the other costs of regular maintenance. With so many tires to choose from, even armed with this knowledge, selecting a specific tire can still be a daunting task. Recently I had an opportunity to experience what it would be like to upgrade a set of tires. Two experiments were performed: upgrading a 2012 BMW X1’s standard 18-inch Goodyear tires to 19-inch Continental DWS tires (with a lower profile) and replacing original 2013 Audi S4’s Continental summer tires with a set of high performance Continental DWS all-season tires (of the same size). In the first case, upgrading to larger, lower aspect ratio tires in the BMW X1 produced sharper capability around corners, quicker steering feel and a more “planted” feel. This happened

THE letters and numbers on the side of a tire may seem like a secret code but they’re easy enough to crack once you know the standard sequence. with very little loss of comfort or noise level. In the second case with the Audi S4, it was surprising to find out that the high performance all-season tires from Continental (DWS) performed almost as effectively as the summer Continental tires from the same manufacturer (DW) in all kinds of road conditions. This experiment allowed

to inject a bit of personality into your current vehicle. Next time you find yourself in a situation that requires a set of new tires, get excited and say, “wow, it’s a chance to get something amazing to improve my ride and performance,” instead of sighing about spending money. It’s well worth the investment. editor@automotivepress.com

me to conclude that if you buy a set of highly capable tires — like the Continental ExtremeContact DWS high performance all-season tires — you can have the cake and eat it too in a sense that you get the best of both worlds: high performance character with all-year-around capability. I think the ExtremeContact DWS is one of the best tires to consider should you wish
