Pet clinic closure shocks owners Anne Watson awatson@nsnews.com

AFTER more than 50 years in operation, Capilano Pet Hospital will be closing this fall — to the chagrin of both local pet owners and unionized employees.

The vet clinic, which currently serves around 8,000 North Shore households, will officially close its doors Sept. 6 after its parent company, Associate Veterinary Clinics, a subsidiary of the American corporation VCA Antech, sent notification that it would be shutting it down. “It was a very tough decision for us to reach,” said Michael Neumann, regional operations director in B.C. for Associate Veterinary Clinics. He said the clinic is losing money and the building lease is up in the fall. “You add to that the fact that our facility is in poor condition, we don’t own the facility and we cannot continue to provide our high standard of care going forward in that building.” The information provided by the clinic does not add up according to Heather Lee, viceSee Unionized page 3

THE North Vancouver woman named as the subject of an alleged hush-money plot in emails related to the provincial ethnic outreach debacle says she has been made a victim in the scandal.

“If need be, offer her x dollars per month to do non public work up to election (developing her database of potential supporters.)” Sarrafpour confirmed she was offered a job by former MLA Harry Bloy after she resigned as the B.C. Liberal caucus’s ethnic community liaison in September 2012. “Right away, even before the minister or the premier contacted me or my boss in the caucus contacted me to find out what’s going on, Harry Bloy contacted me and said he wants to meet me. He had a meeting with me in downtown Vancouver in the Hyatt Hotel in the lobby,” she said. “He said there is a job happening if I want to

Sepideh Sarrafpour, a former B.C. Liberal caucus employee and community volunteer on the North Shore, said she has been alienated by friends, unable to find work and her reputation has been damaged since she quit her job in September last year. Her resignation — after working for the Liberals to win support in various ethnic communities — left party organizers scrambling to try win her back into the fold. “Have (former MLA) Harry Bloy meet with her and explain how doing anything would damage the Premier and the party. Have him say how we will try to find her work and get her back involved,” reads the email written by former Liberal communications manager Brian Bonney and revealed this week by the B.C. NDP.

Unionized workers to lose jobs

From page 1

president of combined units at the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union local 378, the union representing the hospital staff, said the information. “We’ve only known about it for a couple of months,” said Lee. “There is no reason in terms of profitability or efficiency of the operation that would suggest that the business should close.” Workers at the pet hospital unionized in September 2012 and signed a collective agreement in May, before the closure was announced. Pet owners were also surprised by the news the clinic will be closing. West Vancouver resident Peggy Rowlett learned of the closure from an advertisement by the union in the Sunday edition of the North Shore News. “I was stunned, absolutely stunned,” said Rowlett, who has been bringing her cat Charlie to Capilano Pet Hospital for more than five years. “This is the second time that we have been blindsided by this company.” Rowlett said her cat was a patient at the Cat Hospital in West Vancouver until Associate Veterinary Clinics shut it down in 2008. “I’m furious,” she said. “This is an American company. They just shut down places that they feel aren’t profitable and that’s unfair.” Andrew Irving, a North Vancouver resident, has been boarding his cat at the hospital twice a year for the past five years and was also shocked by the news. “I find that kind of corporate mentality beyond reproach,” said Irving. “It’s a good hospital, it serves a lot of people. It makes absolutely no sense to remove a valuable resource.” Associate Veterinary Clinics bought Capilano Pet Hospital in 2007, after merging the Cottage Cat Clinic on lower Lonsdale and the Cat Hospital on Marine Drive in West Vancouver, both owned by the same company. Neumann said his company has bought and then shut down almost 50 clinics across Canada, but defended those actions. “We’re not in the business of buying clinics and closing them,” he said. “We’re in the business of providing excellent care for pets and we want to have the highest standard of care in the industry and we want to run facilities where we can do that.” According to Lee, prices at Capilano increased after the new owners took over. Lee said that prior to the new ownership, staff “were able to use their judgment and their discretion” and would adjust prices for clients who had recurring visits, but have not been able to since then. The College of Veterinarians of British Columbia, an organization that regulates the veterinary profession in the province, does provide a “fee guide” to its members but the fees are not mandatory. When asked if fees at Capilano had increased with his company’s ownership, Neumann said, “I’ll give you a provisional no.” “There may have been some increases to the fee guide but we certainly weren’t over and above any of our local competition.” Lee said the 39 staff at the clinic are still upset about the news and are unsure about what will happen next. “The staff is actually quite devastated by this,” she said. For now, Lee is hoping to gain community support through a petition the union has created. “We do hope they reconsider the closure,” Lee said. “It’s almost a landmark in the community it’s been in business so long.” Neumann said the company’s decision is final.

The 31-year-old B.C. actor was found dead by hotel staff in Vancouver on Saturday. Though she is not granting interviews, Elena Kirschner’s RED Management offered the following statement Monday: “We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss.” The BC Coroners Service confirmed Tuesday that

The warm, dry conditions havepushedMetroVancouver’s fire hazard risk to “high” from Seymour to Burns Bog. “We’ve got ‘high’ at all stations right now. It shows how quickly we can dry out. We get a few good days of weather and here we are,” said Martin Ernst, West Vancouver Fire and Rescue chief. Residents can help reduce risk by making sure their yards, roofs and gutters are free of debris and branches that can be turned to kindling with a single spark. Ernst has a warning for smokers whose habit might be putting more than their own lungs at risk. “I have regularly been ticketing people for throwing cigarette butts out of the windows of their cars because those can end up in bark mulch on the side of the highway and can start grass and brush fires,” Ernst said. There’s also a role for everyone to play in making sure small fires don’t become forest fires or home-destroying blazes. “Ultimately, it’s vigilance. It’s all about eyes out there. If you notice smoke that doesn’t seem like it’s coming from a barbecue or you’re questioning its source, you phone 9-1-1 right away and you get fire services rolling on it,” Ernst said.

Seymour to end public golfing

NV agent mourns Monteith STAFF at the North Vancouver talent agency that represented Cory Monteith at the time he won his breakthrough role on Glee are grieving the actor’s sudden death.

Wildfire hazard high

CORY Monteith Monteith died because of a fatal combination of alcohol and heroin. The actor had a history of struggles with addiction. Kirschner advised Monteith as he prepared to audition for the show that became a huge hit and a beacon for underdogs, misfits and people who just love song and dance. Kirschner suggested he showcase his musicality by drumming on Tupperware and other items in her Mosquito Creek talent agency’s kitchen. “If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t have got the new show,” Monteith told the North Shore News in 2009.

AFTER maintaining the same schedule for 60 years, Seymour Golf and Country Club is phasing out public play in a bid to swing its way out of the economic rough.

Members of the public have been teeing off at the District of North Vancouver-owned course on Mondays and Fridays since the 1950s, but stagnant membership and the competition posed by Northlands Golf Course necessitated a change, said members of council Monday night. The move has been criticized for excluding the public from a course on public land. But maintaining Northlands and Seymour as competitors is not wise, according to Mayor Richard Walton and other councillors. “One of the things we always have to be aware of is that Northlands and Seymour are two very different golf experiences,” said Coun. Alan Nixon. Young golfers are more suited to the tougher terrain of Northlands, Walton

added. “It is impossible for a lot of people to walk Northlands right now. It’s much easier to walk Seymour,” he said. The club will remove public play by 2016, easing the transition by introducing the Seymour PlayCard, which will be limited to district residents and provide the only avenue for nonmembers to book a tee time at Seymour. Golfers without a PlayCard can still enjoy a long walk broken up by bad arithmetic as a guest of a cardholder on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays. With health and mobility problems taking putters out of the hands of many club members, Seymour has taken the unsustainable approach of boosting monthly dues, according to Seymour club president Greg Hope. On average, the club loses about 50 members each year. In 2012, the club recruited 53 new members and lost 56. “Sixty years ago this lease arrangement made sense. Today, with Northlands offering . . . a public golf alternative just blocks away, it’s time for a change,” Hope said. Under the new arrangement, Seymour will be able to attract more members, allowing the club to be economically

sustainable and continue paying taxes to the district, according to Hope. While council’s vote was unanimous, the main note of caution was sounded by Coun. Mike Little. The new arrangement raises Seymour’s annual rent from $250,000 to $375,000. “If your organization doesn’t really grow, this is a bad deal for the District of North Vancouver,” Little said. While frequency of play may ratchet up during slow periods, the lift to Northlands could be negligible, warned Little. “I don’t know that we’re going to see the bump in Northlands that’s been projected because their Fridays are generally booked up as it is.” Little ultimately cast his vote in the hopes of Seymour landing a bigger crop of members playing a greater number of rounds. “I don’t see any other way that we’re going to get the capital improvements that need to take place on the site,” he said. The new arrangement also gives the district an additional 1.2 acres of park space.

Staffer cites fallout from local event From page 1

stay in touch and still work for Brian Bonney and Harry Bloy.” Sarrafpour stresses she did nothing wrong while working for the Liberals or afterwards. Sarrafpour wouldn’t say exactly why she resigned, but she told the North Shore News at least part of the reason she left the job was because of the fallout from an event she helped organize on the North Shore. In June 2012, then minister of state for multiculturalism John Yap announced the creation of a $750,000 multiculturalism grant available to aboriginal and ethnic nonprofit groups and communitybased organizations. Sarrafpour was put in charge of inviting members of 180 different cultural groups to an event at the Holiday Inn in Seymour to promote the grant on June 30. But when groups who applied for the grants never

heard back from the province, they came to Sarrafpour looking for answers. “They were calling me nonstop saying ‘Sepideh, we did support you. We did come out because of you but there is no grant. What happened to the money?’ and I had no answer for them,” she said. Sarrafpour said she is isn’t sure what’s going to happen next, but she blames Liberal insiders for ruining her reputation with community leaders after she resigned. “They defamed my character. They destroyed my reputation. They said to community leaders that I am under investigation. Basically, they ruined my life,” Sarrafpour said. After the ethnic outreach scandal went public in March, Premier Christy Clark apologized for the leaked plan, Yap resigned from cabinet and several political staffers including Bonney resigned. Particularly stinging for

Sarrafpour is that she supported Clark from the beginning, including during her leadership campaign. The alleged offer from Bloy and Bonney was all hearsay, according to West VancouverCapilano MLA Ralph Sultan. Sultan, who was handed Yap’s portfolio, said he was not aware of what came of the grant program. “Let’s face it, Brian Bonney and Harry Bloy and whomever have all been thoroughly discredited and I wouldn’t attach a great deal to what any of them say, including the lady in question,” he said. B.C. Liberal spokesman Ben James said the party is only learning of Sarrafpour’s allegations through the media.

Outing an ugly truth

THE revelations this week that ‘nutritional’ research was done on malnourished aboriginal children, without their knowledge or consent, should horrify all Canadians. As part of their experiments, researchers who worked for the federal government in the 1940s and 1950s denied essential food to children in residential schools so they could measure the impacts. They believed the end justified the means, and that sacrificing the health of their subjects would provide an overall benefit to a greater number. But they were wrong. Althoughresearchethicsweremurkier then, the basic rule when encountering people in need of help is that even a researcher’s first responsibility is to help them. These experts didn’t do that. Instead, they studied hungry children

and kept them hungry to establish a ‘control group’. Such ‘research’ would never have been carried out on middle-class white children of the time. The ugly truth is these experts didn’t consider their First Nations subjects fully human. It was a view of the ‘other’ shared by the Nazis who in this same time period conducted horrific medical torture in the name of science. In the case of Canada’s aboriginal people, the impacts of mistreatment at residential schools has been long-lasting. In the wake of this week’s information, aboriginal leaders asked Ottawa to hand over records of all research done at residential schools. First Nations are owed that — and more. As Shawn Atleo of the Assembly of First Nations said this week, the past isn’t past. Its echoes remain with us.

Clark’s happy illusion trumps dour truths

MY spectacular streak of correctly predicting B.C. election results having been snapped at one, what excuses do I have?

First, I overlooked that Premier Christy Clark was running not in Metro Vancouver under cynical media eyes, but to get a legislature seat in a bleak desert where wine-sodden voters snooze poolside under the brain-cooking sun. Not a milieu that lends itself to rigorous thought. Aw, just checking the fine residents of Westside-Kelowna for their sense of humour. Not kidding so much: Factor in the appeal to Okanagan vanity — the opportunity to boast yet a third premier in B.C. history — and, proof that their heads are stuffed with smarts after all, their shrewd grasp that a legislator who also happens to be the all-powerful premier can bestow goodies on the local populace. Promise me a bridge and I’ll follow you anywhere.

This Just In

Trevor Lautens And now, not joking at all: Even a zealous supporter of Ralph Sultan privately murmured that if the West Vancouver-Capilano MLA had sacrificially bowed to let Clark run in his equally bank-safe Liberal riding conveniently near her actual Vancouver residence, her constituents — and the whole North Shore — might have received tangible evidence of her gratitude. Such as: Revived pressure for a third crossing (some distant day)? Political muscle to improve the beloved Blue

Bus service that TransLink short-changes with arrogant indifference? Maybe a quiet word to municipal councils to co-operate more in costcutting, especially concerning policing and firehalls? That said, there’s no discounting Clark’s huge Westside-Kelowna victory: 62 per cent of votes cast. But how could I have overlooked the chief factor that I wove into my prediction of a Liberal win in May? Which is: Clark’s beaming, bubbly optimism. I don’t expect Clark will really balance the budget and vanquish B.C. debt, or put well-paying jobs in every household. Adrian Dix is much brainier. So are top members of her caucus (and they resentfully know it). But a Viennese saying quoted long ago by journalist Robert Fulford comes to mind: An illusion that makes you happy is better than a truth that makes you sad. Optimism may be an illusion, but it’s a better political sell than dry policy. Big differences of style and substance aside, another Kelowna premier, mocked by

the Opposition, media and sub-intellectuals as a blowhard and buffoon, had a similar gift for reaching out to hopeful hearts, not analytical minds. W.A.C. Bennett, of course.

••• Park Royal Shopping Centre will make a major announcement in three or four weeks — more reshaping of the mall that is alienating some customers with its seemingly nonstop construction, dust and confusing access and internal roadways. The west end of the “old” south mall will be transformed by 2016, starting early next year. A predictably (I stand foursquare behind this prediction) glittering new store, possibly with a fashion theme, on the elderly Extra Foods site will anchor the area. Wait for it, wait for it, a public announcement will be made probably in three or four weeks. Negotiations are still under way, Park Royal vice-president Rick Amantea told me, and there are “some

competitive reasons why we have to keep things closer to our vest.” All tenants west of the small salad bar will be gone, offered space elsewhere in the centre. Some have chosen not to relocate. A big hole was left by the abrupt closure on June 30 of Peter Black & Sons, the butcher, a 30-year tenant. Nearby, the lively British Newsagent departed in February for Edgemont Village, leaving a boarded-up dead spot. One tenant’s employee said it’s rumoured that Extra Foods — last refuge of the $1 crunchy French loaf, a staple of the undersigned’s diet — will move to new space in the north mall. Loblaws-owned Extra Foods has its loyal customers and its share of attractive specials, and especially President’s Choice brands (like its yummy giant chocolate bar). But there’s little disputing that it’s your grandmother’s grocery store in terms of the clever display and customer-wooing that Marine Drive’s Fresh St.

Market recently brought to the North Shore’s highly competitive grocery scene. Amantea, a well-respected, up-front gent, acknowledges that some customers are put off by Park Royal’s relentless growth. “We know that the level of work we’ve done here causes inconvenience but in three years we’ll have the best retail environment we can create. To not do it is not an option.” Amantea expresses strong support for nearby Ambleside Village’s rejuvenation, which he sees benefitting area business generally and therefore good for all, including Park Royal. “We’re competing to get great retailers, so our competition is with the Oakridges, Pacific Centres and Metrotowns of the world.”

She’s the boss: Clark cements hold on party THE summer legislative session is now half over, so it’s time for some observations and thoughts about what we’ve seen so far in the house:

The multitude of new faces around the legislature has changed the atmosphere for the better. There are more than 30 newbies, and perhaps because they’ve had to spend so much time trying not to get lost in the maze of corridors they haven’t had time to descend to the level of bitter partisanship that characterized the place the past few years. Let’s hope this continues. The new government cabinet, which has a number of rookies, has so far performed fairly well. Education Minister Peter Fassbender has navigated the usually rocky shoals of the government’s relationship with

View from the Ledge Keith Baldrey

the B.C. Teachers Federation fairly well, and Transportation Minister Todd Stone has ably deflected any criticism hurled at him by the Opposition. Veteran MLA Bill Bennett is new to the energy portfolio and has his hands full with B.C. Hydro, but acknowledges there are problems at the Crown Corporation that need to be dealt with and not swept under the carpet.

One newcomer, AttorneyGeneral Suzanne Anton, has had a bit of a shaky start but she’ll have time to grow into her role. New Health Minister Terry Lake has already had to deal with controversy (over a smoking cessation drug) but has weathered things well. The NDP Opposition has yet to find its sea legs in the house. A number of veteran MLAs, no doubt devastated by the prospects of another four long years in Opposition, appear to have checked out, at least for now. It’s unlikely the NDP caucus will be reenergized any time soon, as it will probably take months for caucus members to get over that unexpected election loss. The only two members who seem to have their heads fully in the game right now are John Horgan and Mike Farnworth, and that may be because both may once again find themselves in a party leadership race should Adrian

Bike paths well-used by cyclists

Dear Editor: I’m writing in response to the July 7th letter to the editor by Lynn Gordon arguing that we shouldn’t put more resources into bike paths. I suggest that Gordon stop and think about cycling and its benefits. Cycling is a great way to stay physically fit (something that many people have a hard time making time for) and it

doesn’t contribute to climate change. I’m a cyclist and I use the bike paths every day and my kids do as well. To say that they are empty is simply false. Perhaps Gordon can’t see them whilst she’s whizzing around in her (polluting) automobile. Margaret Bryant North Vancouver

her out of the job and now she is firmly steering the ship with apparently calm waters ahead. B.C.’s first-ever Green Party MLA, Andrew Weaver, has demonstrated an ability to get under the skin of the NDP. He isn’t given much opportunity to ask questions in question period, but he does get to vote on things. His decision to vote in favour of the B.C. Liberal government’s budget really irritated a number of NDP MLAs, who voiced their objections on social media. Weaver told me he voted for it because the election outcome made it obvious people want a balanced budget, so he was following the public’s lead. He said he didn’t necessarily think the budget will actually be balanced when all is said and done, but he was in favour of at least the concept of a

Dix step down as leader. A whole bunch of issues that dominated question period and much of the political debate before the election are now mostly off the table. Remember the NDP’s constant demand for an inquiry into the sale of B.C. Rail? Goodbye! The attacks on Premier Christy Clark for constantly campaigning? No more. Even the ethnic memo furor, which the NDP is trying to revisit, has lost its edge. Speaking of the premier, she hasn’t been around the legislature much as she spent several weeks campaigning in the Westside-Kelowna byelection, so she hasn’t had much of a physical presence. But there’s no doubt who is in charge, as her byelection win cemented her hold on her party. Just a few months ago, people were plotting to force

balanced budget (something that sets him apart from the NDP). Clark has been able to reward most members of her caucus with cabinet posts, parliamentary secretary appointments, committee memberships and caucus positions, most of which come with a boost in salary. Two MLAs, however, have been frozen out: Moira Stilwell and Sam Sullivan. Stilwell has been on the outs with Clark for months, and Sullivan beat Clark for the Vancouver mayoralty some years back. It looks like Clark is not in a forgiving mood towards some people. I wonder whether she will display a similar attitude to some key people in the business community who were less than loyal before her miracle win. Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

North Van firefighters host 20th Burn Camp Anne Watson

awatson@nsnews.com

THE 20th year of a camp for young burn victims started by two North Shore firefighters is in full swing at Camp Latona on Gambier Island this week. Burn Camp is a program offered through the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund that gives children who are burn survivors the opportunity to come together for a week in a fun, safe atmosphere. The camp is being hosted this year by the North Vancouver District Fire Fighters IAFF Local 1183. The camp, which kicked off with a pancake breakfast in North Vancouver on Sunday, is a chance for kids “to go and meet other kids who have gone through it,” said Erik Vogel, Burn Camp director. “It’s a chance for them to have fun and not worry about people starring at their scars and asking them questions.” Dominic Pellett, a 15year-old burn survivor from Langley, has been attending the camp for the past four years. He said likes “meeting new people and hanging out with the people I’ve met there before.” Camp activities include everything from kayaking, hiking and swimming, to

skit night and arts and crafts. Campers also receive one-onone support from counsellors and other burn survivors. Most of the counsellors are firefighters, but also include burn nurses, doctors, and adult burn survivors. Each cabin of around 16 to 17 campers also have junior counsellors on hand who are graduates of the camp. “We need them as role models,” said Vogel, adding that having junior counsellors for the campers mean they have someone to relate to. “A lot of the kids will show up wearing hoodies and sweatpants and to them this is the most horrific thing that’s ever happened and it’s only happened to them and they think they’re disfigured,” Vogel said. “It’s huge for us to see them after a few days realize that they don’t need to be wearing their hoodies at this camp and eventually the hoodies come off.”

The camp was started back in 1994 by Peter Hansen, a North Vancouver District Fire Fighter, and Norm McLeod, a West Vancouver Fire Fighter. It runs for one week every July and approximately 800 children between the ages of six and 18 have attended since it started. Burn survivors are found through a database of children across B.C. who have been admitted to hospital for burns. Causes range from playing with matches and scalds from hot water, to accidental injuries from house fires, boating and car accidents. “We’ll follow up with phone calls if we can but there’s a lot of kids out there that could use this that maybe we don’t know about,” said Vogel. For Pellett, camp has given him more confidence. “I’ve been more open about burns,” he said. “I don’t have to hide it.”

Sewage cost looms

Municipalities debate who pays for new plant Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

WHO’S going to pay for this crap?

That’s the question being bandied about regarding plans for a new Lions Gate Secondary Wastewater Treatment Plant. Slated to be in operation by the end of the decade, the Pemberton Avenue plant would use a biological process to remove about 90 per cent of dissolved material from liquid waste. The secondary treatment process will be an environmental step up from the current primary treatment, which only filters out solid material. But the new sewage plant will come with a hefty price tag. Depending on which design is chosen, the plant could cost between approximately $400 million and $700 million, adding up to a financial strain for North Shore residents. “The current formula is harder on the people in the North Shore,” said City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto. That could be eased if neighbouring municipalities chip in, say local political leaders. But lobbying for funding from other municipalities may be challenging, as the plant would only benefit the North Shore. With the projected $1 billion upgrade of the Iona wastewater plant in Richmond scheduled for 2030 and other improvements slated for the near-future, the issue of funding for large infrastructure projects has been hovering in the background for Metro politicians, according to Delta Mayor Lois Jackson. “Those of us on the south side of the river basically constructed the very large Annacis Island treatment plant,” she said. “Because the north side of the river: Richmond, New West, Burnaby, Vancouver, weren’t a part of that, I

guess we’d have to look at that in terms of what fairness is.” Asking for too much from nearby cities may cause an impasse, according to Jackson. Mussatto said he’s still hopeful a new, more equitable funding system could be devised. “We’re hoping that we can come up with a formula that recognizes the contributions of those municipalities that gave a bit more last time: the Burnabys, the Surreys, and the New Westminsters.” While the North Shore did not pay as much for the Annacis plant, that was partially due to the changing formulas that have been used to determine sewage costs, he said. “We’re trying to get one formula like we do with water, for example. Water, it’s all one region, it’s all one utility, we all pay the same,” Mussatto said. For the last two decades, the benefiting municipality has typically shouldered about 30 per cent of the capital costs of a secondary wastewater plant, but that formula may be revised, according to Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “My guess, I’m sure there will be some regional absorption of the costs,” he said. The price tag will weigh heavily when designing the treatment plant, said Mussatto. A third stage of tertiary treatment is designed to remove contaminants missed in the secondary stage, but Mussatto said that may be too pricey. Because of the low elevation of the new site, critical equipment will be positioned several metres above the existing grade or otherwise protected, but District of North Vancouver Coun. Doug MacKay-Dunn still has concerns. “I think the decision to locate at that site is wrongheaded. If you look at the recent events with Toronto and the New Jersey hurricane, I’m concerned about climate change, rising sea water levels, extreme weather,” he said. “I’m told by the engineers involved, they assure me that everything is wonderful, but I still have my doubts.” The final design should be decided on by the end of September, according to Mussatto.

KATHLEEN EDWARDS MARKS A DECADE OF RECORDING MUSIC

Songs with a story

n Kathleen Edwards, tonight at 8:45 p.m. at Jericho Beach Park, part of the 36th annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival, July 19-21. Lineup, schedule and tickets: thefestival.bc.ca.

Erin McPhee emcphee@nsnews.com

LAST month, on the day Kathleen Edwards was to take the stage at Toronto’s Massey Hall for a special concert honouring Joni Mitchell’s 70th birthday, she experienced a moment of panic when the show’s organizers told her they were short a song in the evening’s program and wondered if she might be able to help them out. In the weeks leading up to the Luminato Festival, a two-night affair which also featured performances by Herbie Hancock, Rufus Wainwright and Glen Hansard, Edwards had been rehearsing “Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire” and “You Turn Me On I’m a Radio” from Mitchell’s 1972 record For the Roses. Under the gun, she realized she had just the song: “Big Yellow Taxi,” which she’d been singing since age 12 at summer camp. “To stand on Massey Hall stage and sing that song and have a crowd of people who also have had Joni Mitchell be the soundtrack to their lives sing along with you is kind of a crazy moment,” says Edwards, reached Monday from her Toronto, Ont. homebase.

That moment is among the many career highs the singer-songwriter has recently been celebrating in light of marking an important milestone this year, the 10th anniversary of the release of her debut album, Failer. Edwards is revelling in the achievement, counting her blessings, and moving forward with a renewed sense of purpose and commitment to her craft as 2013 comes on the heels of what proved to be a tumultuous year in her personal life. Last year saw the release of her fourth record, Voyageur, which was critically acclaimed and shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize (Edwards’ second time receiving the honour); however, behind the scenes, Edwards, who was on the road constantly, was struggling. “I was really proud of the record I’d made, you know, but I was really depressed and felt like I hadn’t achieved what I’d hoped to. And then I sort of started the new year feeling a lot better for a few reasons and was recovering from depression and suddenly had this far happier outlook and realizing, wow yeah, 10 years ago I put out my debut record and I’m still here and I’m still in it and my name means something to people. I’ve done good work and I haven’t compromised and I haven’t done everything right, but I’m still going and I’m ready to keep going. Last year I felt like, well, I should just quit, so it feels like a nice anniversary.” Like the Mitchell concert, exciting opportunities are continuing to come Edwards’ way. For example, it was announced Tuesday that she and Shad will host the Polaris Music Prize Gala set for September. And, Edwards is pleased to be making her debut appearance

at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, which runs tonight through Sunday at Jericho Beach Park. “Playing festivals is kind of a dream, especially when you see who else is on the bill and they end up being friends of yours,” she says. Artists featured over the course of the weekend include Steve Earle and the Dukes, The Cat Empire, Natalie Maines, Cold Specks, DeVotchKa, Laetitia Zonzambé and Loudon Wainwright III. Edwards will take the stage tonight along with Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, The Littlest Birds, Lena Anderssen, Hayden, Aidan Knight, Mo Kenney, Delhi 2 Dublin and Hannah Georgas, a close friend and collaborator of hers. “I might get up with her and do a song and I’m going to get her to come up and sing with me. . . . I think the world of her,” says Edwards. The women will get another opportunity to share the stage tomorrow morning at a workshop entitled Songwriters’ Café at 10 a.m., also featuring Justin Rutledge and Del Barber. Edwards is slated to perform at a second workshop at 1:30 p.m. Saturday with Sam Baker, Reid Jamieson and Whitehorse’s Melissa McClelland, entitled The Story Behind My Song. “I obviously am a really emotional and sensitive person and songwriting has been my outlet for dealing with things — from pain comes art,” says Edwards. “I struggled a lot in my young life with a lot of upheaval and my parents moving around a lot. In retrospect it really weighed on me, it was hard. I just fell in love with songs, they became like my companions and I

“OLD age should burn and rage at close of day,” according to Dylan Thomas, and the “Retired and Extremely Dangerous” crew take heed. It’s every baby boomer’s dream, isn’t it? Who wants to hang out in a caftan and slippers all day when you can hunt down international killers in Jimmy Choos? That’s certainly Sarah’s (Mary-Louise Parker) point of view. Frank’s (Bruce Willis) retirement from the CIA, then from escaping the CIA, isn’t a turn-on. She eyes the other sad, thoroughly domesticated couples at Costco and you can

Not to worry: director Dean Parisot wastes no time in dipping into the film’s pyrotechnics budget, in a scene where Frank’s paranoid buddy Marvin (John Malkovich) meets his maker . . . maybe. Frank reluctantly trails Sarah with him as he susses out a safe place to lay low. Frank and Co. have moved to the top of Interpol’s hit list for

their supposed part in leaking sensitive MI6 documents, ones that point to an A-bomb somewhere in Moscow. They spring the bomb’s creator (Anthony Hopkins, fabulously addled and evil in turns) from a high-security prison in London to help them find it, but not before Frank has a run-in with an old flame, “Frank’s kryptonite” (Catherine ZetaJones, clearly having a ball). The race to catch a terrorist

momentarily gives way to a rivalry for Frank’s affections, a storyline that is abandoned too soon. Old pal Victoria (Helen Mirren) calls from the U.K. and gives them a head start: she’s been hired to take them out. Mirren gets the opportunity to spoof her Oscar-winning role as the queen in one amusing bit. See Songs page 19

Songs and gags keep mood light From page 18 In another, Victoria lazily swings a seamedstockinged leg in the air while prone and shooting an assault rifle, much to the delight of Russian lothario Ivan (Brian Cox, briefly reprising his role from the first Red). Also on the hunt is Han (Byung Hun Lee) “the world’s greatest killer.” Han is a rockstar assassin and comes complete with his own jet. Lee is clearly here to satisfy the under-30 demographic and to liven up the fight scenes with his impressive martial arts skills: one highlight involves a nifty sequence where Han takes on an entire police squad while shackled to a fast-food fridge door. The whole operation ultimately depends on the somewhat ditzy, frequently petulant Sarah. “If she lives, it’ll be good for your relationship,” observes Han.

The villains are reliably nasty (David Thewlis, Neal McDonough) and the body count is high, but filmmakers are careful to keep things light with graphic novel-style scene transitions and the likes of Helen Mirren chatting away on the phone whilst she dissolves one of her kills in acid, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” playing at Marvin’s funeral, and even the old is-that-astick-of-dynamite-in-your-pocket? gag. Elsewhere AC/DC’s “Shoot to Thrill” serves as the backdrop for chase scenes, fight scenes and guns, guns and more guns. Filmmakers aim to add interest with frequent jumps to exotic locales, which only prevent any real interaction between the characters from taking place. The laughs are there, but only just; the story is nothing new. Mirren does her best but everyone except Lee seems tired, which may dampen audience enthusiasm and the chance of a third Red instalment.

PUBLIC HEARINGS

7:00 pm, Tuesday, July 23, 2013 Council Chamber of District Hall, 355 West Queens Road

Undeveloped Alpine Lots (PIDs 012-105-180 and 012-105-198)

1620 Westover Road What:

Public Hearing on proposed District of North Vancouver Rezoning Bylaw (Bylaw 7994)

What is it?

The proposed subdivision creates two 14.6m (48ft) lots consistent with the prevailing lot pattern along Westover Road.

What changes?

What:

Public Hearing on proposed District of North Vancouver Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw 6 (Bylaw 7997) and Rezoning Bylaw (Bylaw 7996)

What is it?

Bylaw 7997 proposes to amend the OCP changing the land use designation for the northern most lot from ‘Residential Level 1: Rural Residential’ to ‘Parks, Open Space and Natural Areas’. Bylaw 7997 also amends the OCP by designating both lots as a Form and Character Development Permit Area and as an Energy and Water Conservation and Greenhouse Gas Reduction Development Permit Area. Bylaw 7996 proposes to rezone both of the lots from Single family Residential One Acre Zone (RS1) to Park Recreation and Open Space (PRO) in keeping with the surrounding forested area.

What changes?

The bylaws will allow the isolated alpine lots to remain in their natural forested state.

In order to create two 14.6m (48ft) lots, the site must be added to Section 310 Special Minimum Lot Sizes in the Zoning Bylaw.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE

Pile on the accessories

DEAR Mattie:

What kind of accessories should I wear? Ready for Summer in Westview

FASHION FILE Our weekly calendar of fashion and beauty events. page 28

Dear Westview: Wear all kinds of accessories. Wearing accessories is in style this season. Every outfit, both casual and formal, should be accessorized. Without accessories your outfit will look incomplete. Large pieces are most in fashion. In fact, if you can’t see it from three metres away, it is too small for this season. Many ladies are wearing significant earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings at the same time. Although it is in fashion, be aware that your accessories still have to match somewhat. There are a variety of ways to match your accessory items, such as by the stone, colour or metal of the piece. If you don’t want to match your pieces, don’t worry, that is in fashion also. But you can’t wear many large pieces at the same time. Choose two or three at most and balance the accessory look throughout your body. If you are going to wear a large neckpiece, consider not wearing big earrings. They are too close together and will not look fashionably balanced. The look of accessories this season is artistic, in the form of design. They are unique and have a funky edge to their styling. This look creates an extravagant expression, but not in price. The extravagance is in your individuality. What you want is to be wearing something no one else is wearing. Gold is making a huge comeback in accessories this season. It has been slowly creeping in over the past seasons. This season all your pieces can be gold, if you dare. For now, treat gold as a colour more than a metal. It is expensive to buy real gold, so try out some of the trendy

inexpensive faux gold pieces. Other metals are also popular. Silver and pewter are in fashion. Pewter is close to a black colour. Pewter is mostly used with silver or gold pieces as a complement. You will also see gold and silver together. How many colours of metals you wear will be a personal choice. I recommend one metal at a time, unless it is a piece that contains more than one metal. Necklaces are an important accessory this season. A statement necklace is a significant piece around your neck. It is a bold look, with many colours of stones or metals. If you are going to wear many pieces, start with the neck piece and go from the there. It creates the balance of your fashion pieces. Earrings are also a bold look. They have the same fashion attributes as the neck piece. Which is why I suggest one or the other. Earrings are large and dangle. They are available in many colours and stones. They have to sparkle this season. My favourite accessories are the bracelet and the ring. Cuffs and bangles are very in fashion. Rings are large. Both can be your most edgy piece. There is a design element that resembles modern art. This piece can somewhat match your other pieces. But they can also stand on their own. Your ring and bracelet can be a unique statement about your lifestyle and personality. There is room for play this season with your accessories. Explore the trends. Adieu, Mattie

Paris style in pen and ink ■ Paris Sketchbook by Jason Brooks (Laurence King Publishers, 160 pages) $29

Terry Peters tpeters@Nsnews.com

FROM the keen eye and deft pen of fashion illustrator Jason Brooks comes this delightful view of Paris.

Combining drawings from several trips to the City of Light, Brooks has created a book that is part tour guide, part journal and all art. He applies his fashion sense to everyday scenes and brings a lively twist to each drawing. His choice of subtle washes and pastel shades create beautiful colour selections that provide a soothing atmosphere to each image. The drawings are grouped together under eight different themes: Architecture, The Street, Le Café, Fashion, Shopping, Art, A to B, and La Nuit. He introduces each of these chapters with his own insights into Parisian life and culture. Interspersed among the illustrations are Brooks’ comments, which range from personal remarks on favourite spots to background information to provide some extra details for the subjects.

LOOK The most common PROSTATE cancer to affect CANCER Canadian men

NEWS photo Mike Wakefield

Employees from Arbutus Safeway celebrating results of the June campaign.

THANK YOU! YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE Safeway employees, customers and the Canada Safeway Foundation raised

$1,447,769 during the month of June for research in the fight against prostate cancer. Funds raised from the June, 2013 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the fight against prostate cancer.

JOE Fresh opens on Lonsdale Avenue today. This is the second standalone boutique in the Vancouver area for the Canadian fashion and beauty brand. Scan with Layar for a video of the store interior.

Brand stands alone

Joe Fresh opens first free-standing store in NV Layne Christensen lchristensen@nsnews.com

FRESH style has come to Central Lonsdale.

The North Shore’s first Joe Fresh stand-alone store opens today at 1620 Lonsdale Ave., next door to the Loblaws City Market, which anchors the Local on Lonsdale condo development. The fashion brand created by Toronto designer Joe Mimran for Canadian food distributor Loblaw Companies Ltd. is available locally at Real Canadian Superstore locations and at the flagship Joe Fresh boutique on Granville Street. The Lonsdale location is just 3,000 square feet compared to Granville’s 14,000 square feet, but is spacious enough to display the Joe Fresh assortment and expected to be a hit with locals, says the brand’s senior public relations co-ordinator. “Itfeelslikeabooming,activeneighbourhood,” says Katie Gregory, who provided the North Shore News with a sneak peak at the store Thursday. The Toronto-based publicist is from the West Coast and “If I moved back to Vancouver, this is where I’d live,” she says. About half the sales floor is devoted to women’s fashions while active wear, sleepwear and menswear comprise the other half. A beauty bar, accessories and footwear are located near the store’s central cash desk. The boutique does not carry the brand’s popular children’s clothing collection, which will continue to be available at Superstore locations. Giving shoppers a hint of what’s to come is the Joe Fresh pre-fall collection, with a large program of smart separates in blue and black featuring colour-blocking and graphic prints. And for shoppers in need of a more immediate fashion fix, the store is stocked with signature brights and preppy plaids and stripes. The Joe Fresh publicist shares her five favourite

This one is super fun.” Go for the “double denim” look by pairing it with denim shorts or pair it with a bright, such as a red short. $29 Classic white jean: “For summer, head-to-toe white is a strong look,” says Gregory. Joe’s slimcut denim fits low at the waist and is cropped to show off footwear. $19 For men: Polo tee: It’s a staple that should be in every man’s wardrobe, says Gregory.

Edwards honest about struggles From page 13 just wanted to be with them all the time, not just mine, but other people’s.” Over the years Edwards has learned the importance of staying true to herself, citing Neil Young as inspiration. Young has faced harsh criticism for albums at different times in his career but has remained steadfast in his artistic vision. “I think that’s really brave and that’s the kind of artist I hope I can be.” Some of the challenges Edwards faced last year were the result of her honesty and openness, leaving her feeling extremely vulnerable at times. Parts of Voyageur were inspired by her divorce to Colin Cripps, a longtime collaborator, including on her third record, 2008’s Asking For Flowers. Voyageur was produced by Edwards’ boyfriend at the time, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), with whom she’s since parted ways. The situation led to the constant question of, “‘So you made a record about your ex-husband with your new boyfriend,’” she says, that while fair, left her feeling, “embarrassed. You’re just like, ‘Wow, I sound like a total asshole.’” When asked whether she plans to be more protective of her personal life in the future, Edwards says no. “It’s the people who are honest and upfront about the struggles of life or the complexities of the unpredictable ironies and the hilarity of our own stupidity and our

own humanness that I find to be the biggest comfort,” she says. One of the greatest compliments she’s ever received and that’s helped her heal is to know that her songs have helped other people when they’ve faced hard times. “Maybe my job in life is to write music that brings other people comfort,” she says. “I don’t know, that’s what music did for me when I was young so maybe that’s what keeps me going.” These days, Edwards is taking it easy, staying close to home and relaxing in her current relationship, lying in wait for the madness associated with an upcoming move into a new house at the end of the summer. In terms of her next music project, she has a few ideas percolating, potentially releasing a ‘90s cover album. She’s recorded a few tracks so far, including a version of Roxette’s “It Must Have Been Love,” which aired on a recent episode of Private Practice. As well, she hopes to one day put together an all-female Canadian supergroup with Georgas, Jenn Grant and Rose Cousins by her side, calling themselves Modern Beaver. “I feel really lucky that I’m a 10-year survivor of touring in a van with boys and being the boss and having to navigate going from being green . . . to holy shit, I’m one of the survivors of this route I’ve chosen,” she says. “I don’t have all the answers, but I have a shitload of experience.”

Animator creates the illusion of life Stearns preserves the old art of pen on paper

Jeremy Shepherd jshepherd@nsnews.com

THE child bounds for the door but his escape is blocked by a towering figure wearing a sugary sweet smile. The kindergarten teacher has him trapped in a room of naiveté and juice boxes; alone in the knowledge of the horrors that loom in the darkness of nap time. This is the storytelling world of Vancouver animator Jeff Chiba Stearns, at once sweet and sophisticated. Stearns’ stories have included a Post-it note of uncertain genealogy who ascertains the whereabouts of his father, folds itself into a canary-coloured crane, and flies. Other work is autobiographical, detailing his struggle to become a filmmaker and ruminating on what it means to be a Canadian of Japanese and European descent, besides having a taste for perogies with soy sauce. What binds his work, almost without exception, is the dying art of pen and paper. A river of ink once flowed through Disney’s studios, rushing past the animators whose skilled hands acted as midwives in the birth of 80 years of indelible cartoons. From Mickey Mouse’s earliest misadventures aboard a steamship to Fantasia to The Princess and the Frog, hand-

drawn animation was the common link. That era appears to be over. But while Disney and other studios embrace computer animation, Stearns is as committed to ink and pulp as John Henry was to his sledgehammer. “To me there’s a romantic notion of pausing this in the world of animation of keeping it old school and drawing on paper. . . . A lot of people are drawing on computers now and I’m guilty of that, you’ve got to keep up, but at the same time there’s nothing like pen on paper,” he says, speaking in the rapid cadence befitting an artist who spends his life cramming as much as possible into one twenty-fourth of a second. Stearns will attempt to pass on his love of doodles, drawings, and sketches at the Classic Animation Anijam scheduled for Aug. 10 at the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver. After taking children through a few of the basic principles of animation, the kids will see their work pieced into an animated film that evening. “There’s a definite reward and satisfaction to seeing a group of drawings you’ve done come alive,” Stearns says. Stearns’ use of the word ‘alive’ is instructive, because for him animation is ultimately about a single, vital component. “There’s tips and tricks and things over a hundred years that animators have come up with that help create that illusion of life,” Stearns says. Those tips and tricks include the squash and the stretch, so that the fingers stretching towards a frightened Dalmatian may seem to elongate See Kids page 34

Kids will pen their drawings on Post-it pads From page 33

as they draw nearer. Disney animators Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas laid out 12 of those principles in their 1981 book The Illusion of Life: Disney Animation. Characters should appear three-dimensional and move naturally, so that Ichabod Crane’s long limbs continue their gangly journey even after his torso is still. Great animation happens through constant observation of the nuances of movement, according to Stearns. “It’s one of the most misunderstood art forms to ever exist ‘cause I think a lot of people don’t quite understand the process that is involved with drawing thousands of drawings . . . and trying to capture that illusion of life in the drawings,” Stearns says. “As soon as you start teaching that to people they get it. . . . The walls break down.”

And as those walls crumble the artists can tell their own stories, Stearns explains. “It’s trying to get kids to self-reflect and express their emotions through just doodles, or drawings, or things that come alive,” Stearns says. Approximately 40 years before the first film was animated, the flipbook was patented. That early form of animation can still be useful, according to Stearns, who plans to have the young Anijam artists pen their drawings on Postit pads. “We need to de-mystify the process of animation for them so it’s not so intimidating,” he says. Stearns is hoping workshops like the one slated for Aug. 10 will leave children with a lasting affection for classical animation. “We want to basically keep an art form alive, or at least an appreciation for this art form,” he

says. “You kind of put yourself in a meditative state when you animate and that’s something where the stream of consciousness comes out through the pen and onto the page,” he explains. “It makes the process of doing many drawings over and over again more enjoyable because I think there is a level of reflection that happens,” he says, discussing his penchant for working at a delirious pace in a quiet environment. “You could say I’m obsessive compulsive, that’s for sure, which lends itself well to animation,” Stearns says. “We’re usually drawing thousands of drawings so I think you have to be a little OCD to be able to survive in this profession.” Before attending the animation program at Emily Carr, Stearns was fueled by sugar and the iconic Warner Bros. cartoons drawn by Bugs Bunny creator Tex Avery.

“Back then it was Saturday morning and that was it. You’d get your bowl of cereal and sit in front of the TV at five in the morning and geek out till they shut off at 12,” he remembers. Choosing to spend his working life manufacturing the intangible had its risks, but Stearns says he’s happy with his choices. “I work for myself, I work the hours I want to work and I do what I want to do and my life is never boring,” he says. “I could just do production and make a ton of cash, but it doesn’t fulfill me. The idea of giving back and being that socially responsible filmmaker and combining teaching and animation is to me bliss.” Stearns is currently working on an animated film entitled Mixed Match that deals with the difficulties multi-ethnic patients encounter when looking for bone marrow donors. The film is tentatively slated for a 2014 release.

Dorothea (Babs) Millerd Ferguson March 9, 1921 - July 8, 2013

Dorothea Marjory (Babs) Stuart was born in Stettler Alberta in 1921 and raised in Calgary. As WWII wound down, she met Don Millerd of West Vancouver. They were married in 1945. They moved in to a cannery shack on the grounds of the Millerd family salmon cannery which sprawled over five acres on the shores of West Vancouver. In 1958 they moved from a cannery house to a larger house, but still adjacent to the cannery grounds. A move necessitated by a growing number of children. She remained headquartered there for the next 60 years. She raised six children who freely roamed the beaches and bushes of Caulfeild and Cypress Park. This busy brood was raised without the assistance of dishwashers, microwaves, colour TVs, or mini vans. She had four kids before she had a dryer; she had six kids before she had a car. Life revolved around the cannery, neighbours, Cypress Park, and St. Francis in the Wood Church. There were always Christmas Eve carol sing-alongs and Easter egg hunts. In 1968 she and Don bought a farm in the then remote Pemberton Valley, and a new dimension was introduced to family life. After Don’s death in 1977 the farm remained a centre for growing and nurturing her burgeoning crop of grandchildren. Her first grandchildren mispronounced “Gran” as Dan. She was forever after “Dan” to her grandchildren. In 1985 she married John Ferguson also of West Vancouver. This joyous union began a new phase of her life that featured new relationships, interesting dinners, and much travel. John brought family of his own into the mix with his two kids Jean and Ian along with their 3 children and grandchildren. Babs drafted a willing “Grandpa John” into a busy family life. It was a happy time. Along the way, she discovered that she had a heretofor hidden, but considerable, artistic talent as a painter and water colourist, leaving behind beautiful paintings of some of her favorite places; the farm and the church. But the focus of life remained her family. Along with Sunday dinners, and family outings, she hosted riding camps and art schools for her grandchildren at the Pemberton farm. Babs led an active life. Her home was a noisy, raucous place that welcomed all comers. As dinner neared she could often be heard to say “there is always room for one more plate.” What she lacked in cooking skills she made up for in enthusiasm. A note on the fridge said, “When I was young I had six theories on raising children. Now I have six children and no theories.” Babs bore six children who gave her 21 grandchildren who, at last count, had produced 10 great grandchildren. She was the matriarch of this clan in the grandest way. She taught her offspring the important things: work hard, love well, hold hands and look after each other. She was always active in her community, and in the life of St. Francis in the Woods Church. She ultimately received a lifetime achievement award from the Diocese of New Westminster. Life was characterized by her family, farm and fun. As she got old, Babs was heard to grudgingly say, “Old age is the shits!” But although she bore her aging years without enthusiasm, she did so with acceptance. She was greatly aided in this difficult enterprise by attentiveness of her daughters, and by the remarkably professional and wonderfully loving caregivers at Hollyburn House. Last weekend she had had visits from some of her many children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. The next morning, at age 92, she peacefully died…of old age. She will be missed. A funeral will be held at St. Francis-in-the-Wood Anglican Church. 4773 Picadilly South, West Vancouver on Wednesday, July 31 at 2:00pm.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to THE ROAD

Electric backers hope to give folks a jolt Brendan McAleer Contributing Writer

THE pride and joy of the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association is its 1912 Detroit Electric — yep, you read that right, a 100-year-old electric car. Take that, Nissan Leaf.

only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!” Design The ordinary Countryman is a bit like what a regular Cooper must look like from a child’s perspective. It’s not that much bigger, just taller, longer, wider and heavier by a factor of about 20 per cent. And frankly, where “go-kart handling” is concerned, that’s about 20 per cent worse. Not to worry though, because the boffins at JCW have made efforts to engineer in 20 per cent more good again. We’ve got sized-up alloys (18-inch standard, 19-inch optional) with a slightly lowered suspension,

The machine in question had a range of about 160 kilometres originally, and was once stored in the basement of the Empress Hotel in Victoria, ready to leap into action at any moment to ferry its wealthy original owner about town without any of that tricky Model T pedal work. Today the car lives in the Stave Lake hydroelectic dam, and the original nickel-iron batteries have been replaced with lead-acid ones, reducing the range to a still-respectable 60-80 km. If you’d like to clap eyes on the thing, why don’t you mosey on down to this year’s ElectraFest, held at the Concord Pacific lot, just east of BC Place. It’s free, in case you were wondering, and all sorts of other electrified transportation will be there, from the lightning-quick Tesla Model S to the aforementioned Nissan Leaf, to electric bicycles, to battery-powered skateboards and plug-in hybrid work trucks — I think someone’s even bringing an electric unicycle. The atmosphere will be . . . exciting. Ha! Thought I was going to say “electric,” didn’t you? Not to worry — I displayed considerable . . . resistance. Sorry.

THE Countryman is Mini’s answer to the family hauler, and with the John Cooper Works edition they’ve figured out how to transfer the thrills of their traditional tiny racers into the bigger body of a four-door crossover.

2013 Mini Countryman JCW

Mini finds a way to grow

www.taylor motive.com

Scan this page with the Layar app to see video of the Mini Countryman JCW in action.

ORIGINALLY conceived as a way to mobilize the post-war British population, the Mini of the 1960s was a chirrupy little thing: 10 feet long, 600 kilograms, 850 cubic centimetres of fury pumping out a whopping 34 horsepower.

Grinding Gears

Brendan McAleer

Today we have this, a machine that says Mini on the tin, but is quite clearly Costco-sized. It’s three times as heavy. It’s six times as powerful. It’s got flares and scoops and satellite navigation and huge tracts of land.

BMW builds Minis these days — happily the Bavarians’ first efforts at creating a Britischer worked out really quite well, with some of that scrappy, go-karty feel perfectly duplicated, except in a machine now with more

crash protection than a Tesco shopping bag. That’s all great, but Mini can’t merely sell one single car out of their dealerships, and the inaugural Cooper two-door lacks practicality for urban families or others who might need more carrying space. Thus was born the Countryman, a small fourdoor crossover that’s about as suited for actual country living as Posh Spice. Now, the in-house hooligans of the John Cooper Works (JCW) have had a go at charging up the Countryman with big horsepower, big wheels, big brakes and aggressive aerodynamics. The result? Well, to quote Michael Caine in The Italian Job, “You were

a bump in horsepower to 208, blacked-out headlights, gaping ducts in the front and rear fascia, a rally-style rear air diffuser and great big twin exhausts out back. And, if the bystander still doesn’t quite pick up on having the word “SPORTY!” shouted at them through a megaphone, this one’s also been festooned in red racing stripes. Gazing upon the JCW Countryman is like being savaged by a corgi. Yes, there’s plenty of aggro, but it’s also cute in its stumpy legged, foam-jawed way. Calm down, you Lilliputian lunatic. Environment Step inside the Countryman and you find that the JCW team has also blacked out most of the cute-factory of the cartoonish Mini take on interior design — and things are the better for it. Yes, the enormous, mostly useless dash-mounted

speedometer is still there, but now both it and all the air vents are ringed in black, giving the interior layout something of a restrained feel. Granted, they have felt the need to go hog-wild with the red seat piping, but overall the JCW Countryman is actually toned down inside. Of course, from a strict ergonomics perspective, everything’s reasonably wonky. Again, you will never use the centre speedo, the aircraft-style toggles are super-cool, but possibly mounted a bit low for some drivers, and the layout of the air-conditioning controls is similarly a bit low. However, the optional navigation system is relatively easy to use — and it should be, considering it’s exactly the same setup as you’d get in a BMW — and pretty much everything except the sport button is set-and-forget anyway. And in its stated mission of being a better cargo hauler than its smaller stable mates,

the Countryman JCW comes up aces. Both front and rear seats are decently sized for adults (the back swallows a rear-facing child-seat without issue), and while the panoramic sunroof does intrude into rear headroom somewhat, this is an airy feeling, spacious vehicle. Rear trunk space (well, that’s “boot” space according to the brochure, me ol’ China) is just large enough to accommodate a folded running stroller, and has a semi-useful tray section in the bottom. This last would be far more practical if you could remove it sometimes for an extra three or four inches of clearance, but it’s bolted in place for some reason. Now, let’s get back to the sport button issue. Performance My JCW Countryman was fitted with Mini’s paddleshifted six-speed automatic transmission, which has a

bit of a Jekyll-and-Hyde approach to shifting. Actually, make that Jeeves and Wooster. Leave it in normal mode and the transmission is as imperceptible as a proper gentleman’s valet: “Your gear, sah,” it says, holding third out on a silver salver for you to select. Smooth, smooth, smooth — and utterly dull. Hit the sport button toggle and suddenly the transmission comes over all Vinnie Jones, “C’mon if ye think yer hard enough!” delivering a harsh kidneypunch of an upshift which,

one admits, is somewhat distressing. Crivvens. In vehicles equipped with the available six-speed manual transmission (and thank you Mini for making such available), this nightand-day issue wouldn’t really be a problem, and in the standard, more laid-back car, the auto does just fine. In the JCW car though, it’s a bit of a letdown, especially since the paddle shifters are those silly push-pull kind, instead of the more satisfying left hand downshifts, right hand upshifts that nearly everyone else uses. And that’s because the rest of the machine is so good. It’s not quite as much

fun as the lower, lighter Cooper S, but its darty steering and amazing levels of grip are simply fantastic. Add in the fact that the JCWprepped suspension does an admirable job of controlling body lean without making for a rough ride over broken pavement — this in a car the size of a Honda Fit with 19-inch alloys — and blue ribbons all round. The 1.6-litre turbocharged engine has been fettled by JCW to produce 208 h.p., which it does in a smooth, peppy fashion. And, while this car is considerably heavier than the See Buy page 45

Buy the Countryman JCW with your heart and eyes, not brain From page 44 rest of the Mini crew, it zips along just fine. Given the way the ALL4 (sounds like a boy band) all-wheel drive plants the power down, give the Countryman a twisty, slippery road and it’ll easily reel in any of its front-wheel-drive cousins, despite the weight penalty. Features Value is, of course, not really an argument to be made anywhere in the Mini range except for the very basic cars, and the JCW Countryman is no exception. My tester started with a sticker of $38,500, which almost seems semireasonable, but everything is

an additional extra. Want satellite navigation? That’ll be $1,850 for the Wired package, please. Leather interior? $1,900 extra. The sunroof and heated front seats will set you back a further $1,990. The end result of all this relentless optioning is a tiny crossover with a price tag of a whopping $51,240. Good gracious me. However, Mini’s playing in their own niche here, and you can’t really compare small-CUVs like the X1 or Tiguan to this highest-spec Countryman, as it offers a unique driving experience — for instance, no other people-mover has steering this quick. Mini already sells

plenty of heavily optioned Coopers, so for those looking at a slightly more practical premium urban runabout, this all-the-bells-and-whistles JCW version makes a reasonable case despite being, well, a bit unreasonable.

transmission spoils the fun; thirsty for a 1.6-litre turbo. The checkered flag Not a vehicle you’d really buy with your head, but one that appeals to the heart.

Green light Great looks; decent room; small footprint for city driving; excellent steering and performance. Stop sign Expensive!; style favoured over ergonomics; automatic

Fuel economy ratings for the automatic are officially set at 8.7 litres/100 kilometres city and 6.5 l/100 km highway. During my week with the car, I never saw less than 10.2 l/100 km, and that’s premium fuel.

Anyway, some of you may be saying, “Oh who cares? A clunky old relic and a bunch of niche products designed to appeal to engineers with pocket protectors.” Now hang on. I did mention the Tesla was going to be there, right? Perhaps you’ve heard of it: seats seven, shows its taillights to a Dodge Viper down the dragstrip. Furthermore, Vancouver is something of an electric vehicle hub. Yes, some of the backyard conversions aren’t really going to appeal to you unless you’ve got a bit of Mad Scientist in your blood, but our unique hemmed-in geography makes the electric vehicle a much more practical proposition than someplace like Calgary. The VEVA first officially formed in 1988 and has been spreading the gospel of EV machinery ever since. Their membership is highly active at any car show you’d care to name, and they’re often out and about with that 1912 Detroit, as well as any of the numerous conversions and/or factory-built electric vehicles that members own. Why? It’s simple really. While the internal combustion engine still rules the road, the practical drawbacks of electric vehicles (availability, range, ownership know-how) are rapidly falling by the wayside. In fact, the only impedance (again, sorry) to more widespread ownership is prejudice. As with any other subject, the best weapon against prejudice is education, and the VEVA is certainly all about that. Buttonhole any member and they’ll happily explain the cost-benefit analysis of electric vehicle ownership, the clear advantages, and the minor annoyances. They’ll outline the increasing ease of finding charging stations (a database is maintained on their website), and the reducing cost of actually buying a commercially available, dealersupported electric car. And, what’s more, you’ll be inducted (induction! That’s another pun! Sorry.) into a club with an active, supportive membership that’s as close-knit-yet-welcoming as the classic car association of your choosing. It’s not all nerdy do-gooding either, most of these guys and gals are basically hot-rodders — they’re just using lightning rods instead. But that’s not to discount the environmental advantages of vehicle electrification. Most of British Columbia’s power is cleaner than our Eastern cousins, and with Vancouver rated the second most congested city in the world, a line of internal-combustionengined cars parked idling for blocks and blocks on Georgia Street on a hot Friday afternoon is just plain wasteful. I love the sound of a V-8 roaring as much as the next guy (unless I’m standing next to David Suzuki) but the cruel realities of city traffic mean you’re just burning dollars better saved up for a track day or a road trip up to Lillooet. Not that the electric vehicle is a panacea, by any means, but we’ve reached a sort of tipping point, particularly with the Tesla, which has made battery-powered motoring seem cool again. The Leaf, i-MiEV and Focus EV make the electric car lifestyle accessible for the city dweller, the Prius plug-in hybrid and the Chevy Volt give you electric power without the worries of getting stranded, and as the consumers come around, so do the companies. Heck, even Porsche’s latest supercar plugs into the wall for part of its power. So head down on Saturday (things kick off around 10 a.m.) and get a good look at where our changing driving landscape might be going. You might be shocked at how far the electric car’s come in the last few years and hey, it’s always good to stay current.

THE fun-to-drive Nissan Juke Nismo has a unique design that inspires strong love or hate responses.

Competitor Nissan Juke Nismo ($24,998) Think the JCW Countryman’s an oddball? What about this little insectoid bundle of joy: with a 197 h.p. 1.6-litre turbo, line it up against the JCW Countryman and stage your own Wacky Races. Of course, the Juke, while excellent to drive, is a bit odd looking. You either love it or you hate it. Add in a similarly polarizing Nissan CVT transmission and the Countryman claws back some

ground despite the price gap. And then there’s the rear seat passenger room — simply put, the Juke doesn’t really have any. Even so, the newly released Nismo (Nissan Motorsports) version provides a strong fun-to-drive argument without hitting your wallet quite so hard. mcaleeronwheels@gmail.com
