Majority pan WV cell towers 100 turned away from town hall meeting

BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

A capacity crowd of West Vancouver residents turned out Wednesday night to make sure Rogers and District of West Vancouver council understand they are opposed to three more cell towers being installed on the Highway 1 corridor. Rogers has applied to build three 36-metre towers on provincial land at Taylor Way, 15th Street and 26th Street that will include infrastructure to boost the wireless data coverage of the applicant as well as Telus and Wind Mobile. Wednesday’s event was run much like a municipal pubic hearing, including presentations from district staff and the applicant followed by a chance for residents to speak their minds.The one key difference:West Vancouver council cannot vote on whether to allow the towers to be installed.That is exclusive jurisdiction of Industry Canada. Driving the need for the towers is growing demand for wireless data service and the federal government auctioning off more bandwidth on the wireless spectrum, according to Mark Draper, a Rogers engineer. But dropped calls or slowerYouTube downloads weren’t a priority for dozens of residents who live near the proposed towers

Among the most commonly repeated: the not fully-understood health impacts of electromagnetic frequency that comes from cell towers, the loss of views and neighbourhood character that would come

with “industrial” towers and the drop in property values surrounding residents would suffer. While district staff reiterated a previous statement from Vancouver Coastal Health’s chief medical health officer Dr. Patricia Daly, that

cellular antennae do not create health risks for the public and that Canada’s Safety Code 6 provides an appropriate level of protection, many speakers pointed to higher safety standards and growing concern from medical, health and safety groups in

other countries. Very little research has been done into the longterm effects of microwave radiation, noted Ken Stiles, a PhD physicist, though in his own review of scientific literature, he did come by See 2nd

North Vancouver RCMP is investigating after an Argyle secondary student was mugged at knifepoint on his walk to school, Wednesday. The student was walking on a trail in Hunter Park around 8:30 a.m. when confronted by a masked man brandishing a knife and demanding the student hand over his backpack which contained a small amount of cash. Though he wasn’t injured, the student is shaken up by the incident, an RCMP press release noted. The victim described the suspect to police as a “tall lanky man with shoulder length blond hair.” He was wearing a balaclava, blue hooded sweatshirt and grey sweatpants at the time of the robbery. Police don’t yet have any suspects, according to the release. In response to the incident, the North Vancouver school district sent a note to parents on Wednesday afternoon, advising them to review safe practices for kids who walk to school. Students should travel in groups and use well-lit streets or trails, the letter notes, and anyone who feels threatened on their walk should call 9-1-1. “This incident is very concerning to the police and to the community,” said Cpl.

Romantic con artist jailed for 3 years Targeted women lost $40K collectively JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver woman who was conned out of more than $3,000 by a smooth-talking scam artist said she felt vindicated Monday after watching the former boyfriend who duped her be led away to jail. Laura Ansley was in Vancouver provincial court, along with several other

women who were scammed, as Judge Harbans Dhillon sentenced Wesley Devries to three years in jail for 13 charges of fraud and theft. Devries was handed the sentence after pleading guilty to the charges. Most of Devries’ scams involved targeting women he formed romantic relationships with in order to sweet-talk them into lending him money, handing over PIN numbers or cashing what turned out to be bogus cheques for him. Ansley said this week it felt good to see Devries pay a price for his crimes after initially being told, “It

was my fault and there was nothing I could do.” This summer, another Lower Mainland woman, Lisa Dwyer, went public with her story of being wooed — then duped out of money — by Devries, who asked her to help him out by cashing a cheque. For Ansley, who Devries convinced to hand over her PIN number and bank card while they were dating, that experience was painfully familiar. Several other women reported similar experiences. After Dwyer’s story of being ripped off went public, Devries turned to other kinds of fraud

— including stealing a high-end ride from a North Vancouver bike shop when he took a $6,000 bike for a test ride and never returned it. He was eventually arrested in West Vancouver. Ansley said Devries refused to even acknowledge the women he conned in the courtroom on Monday. “He wouldn’t even look at us,” she said. “We all did this together.We were powerful.” She said it also felt good to know they had saved other women similar heartache and financial loss. Outside the court,

Crown counsel Peter Stabler said the fact the women banded together and came forward with similar stories made the case much stronger. “You have the same (modus operandi) repeating itself over and over again,” he said. Unfortunately, such scams — where a man forms a relationship with a woman strictly to rip her off financially — are not that unusual, he added. Devries stole more than $40,000 from his victims collectively. “It was a hardship for most of these women,” said Stabler. “They weren’t in

a position where $2,000 or $3,000 was nothing.” In court Monday, the judge ordered Devries to pay back his victims. But Ansley said she doesn’t expect to ever see the money. She said she’s now got more empathy when she hears about people who have been duped by fraudsters. “Everyone judges those people,” she said. “I never thought I would be one either.” Ansley said she’s also “developed a new set of boundaries” towards prospective romantic partners — especially where money is concerned.

2nd town hall meeting set From page 1 a German study that found residents who lived within 400 metres of a cellphone tower were 300 per cent more likely to be diagnosed with cancer over 10 years. “I strongly urge you to give this some serious thought. In fact, this whole issue reminds me of the asbestos industry in the 1950s and 1960s when there already was evidence that asbestos was damaging people’s lungs but the regulatory officials of the day swept it under the rug and didn’t do anything about it and continued to sell asbestos,” he said. As for the potential drop in property values, which Industry Canada does not take into account in its decision, that would amount to “expropriation without compensation” in the words of Westcot Place resident Bill Holmes. Still, a few swam against the current and suggested the lack of coverage in West Vancouver is worth adding a few more cell towers to the ones already on the North Shore, and that the level of radiation coming from the would-be towers is far lower than what people expose themselves to on a daily basis. After reminding attendees that it is Industry Canada’s decision to make, Mayor Michael Smith said participants who came out to speak did not do so in vain. “I want to assure you, we on council listen to the pubic before we make any

WE are hoping that both Industry Canada and the province will listen: Mayor Michael Smith. decisions and we do listen carefully,” he said. “We are hoping that both Industry Canada and the province will listen to the feedback from West Vancouver.That’s why the district and council is hosting these meetings — so we can provide that input and make sure our voice is heard.” West VancouverSunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country MP John Weston and West VancouverCapilano MLA Ralph Sultan were both present for the meeting. About 100 residents had to be turned away at the door because of the limited time of the event and the capacity of the venue.To accommodate them and anyone else who didn’t get a chance to attend the meeting, the district is scheduling a second town hall meeting for Oct. 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the seniors’ centre.Those turned away Wednesday will be given priority on the speakers’ list.

HEU strike averted at LGH

BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

A potential strike affecting Lions Gate Hospital and care homes on the North Shore has been narrowly avoided. More than 200 Hospital Employees’ Union members who work in housekeeping and dietary jobs have reached a contract agreement with the private companies that the province contracts. Employees of Aramark had voted 97-per cent in favour of a strike last week

after a year of negotiations showed no progress. “As we were doing that, . . . Aramark contacted us and we agreed to go back to the bargaining table Monday and Tuesday with the mediator ready,” said Bonnie Pearson HEU secretary-business manager. “I think they realized the members were resolved that they wanted to see progress and they needed to put a fair and reasonable solution on the table.” Under the new agreement, the employees, who work at Kiwanis

Care Centre, Lions Gate Hospital, Margaret Fulton Centre and Cedarview Lodge, will get a $1-per hour raise over a four year agreement and “significant’ improvements in health and welfare plans, Pearson said. The union reached a similar deal with Frenchbased contractor Sodexo on Sept. 15, which also employees custodial and kitchen workers at North Shore care facilities, last week. While Pearson is “cautiously optimistic” that employees will ratify

the deal this week, their wages and benefits are still below 2004 levels when the province privatized the work, resulting in wages been slashed from an average of $18 per hour down to roughly $9. By the end of this contract, the hourly wage will be $16. “Obviously, we are still well below the living wage we would like to be at and that we were at before people were privatized,” Pearson said. “It’s a lesson in what happens when contracting out workers, isn’t it?”

DNV unveils parks app The District of North Vancouver’s parks can now fit in the palm of your hand. The district launched a free parks app last Friday, giving Apple and Android users a scrollable map of all the district’s green spaces. DNV Parks allows users to find out which park is closest to their current location or to filter results based on desired features, such as tennis courts or water parks. The app displays a map highlighting each of the district’s 54 parks, and with a single click users can find out when the lights are turned off, which parks permit off-leash dogs, and other information. App users can also create a personalized list of parks based on considerations such as hiking trails or picnic spots. Users can download the app through the Apple App Store or Google Play. — Jeremy Shepherd

Towering inferno

C

redit the District of West Vancouver for making a concerted effort to engage with its residents over the thorny issue of cell tower placement in the community. Because at least 100 people were turned away from Wednesday evening’s town hall meeting, the district will hold another on Oct. 16 to accommodate them.That’s good civic engagement. Whether the negative sentiment expressed towards the new cell towers by almost all at Wednesday’s meeting is representative of majority opinion in West Vancouver is difficult to assess. But clearly many residents are worried by the possibility of long-term harmful side effects from electromagnetic radiation. We have run letters in this paper on both sides of the issue, but are not in a position to judge.There are close to 100 microwave transmitters already on the

North Shore. But it does concern us that some countries have moved to adopt more stringent safety codes than Canada. Unfortunately,West Vancouver has no say in the decision-making process — that remains in the hands of Industry Canada. The only way the location of the three towers slated for Highway 1 in West Vancouver (and others yet to be debated) would see their planned locations changed would be if the land owner — in this case the province — was to withdraw its building permission. So, in some ways,Wednesday’s town hall meeting and the one to come set up false expectations. Unless the province can be persuaded to say no, the best compromise for opponents may be to try and secure contract language between B.C. and Rogers that could resite the towers if Canadian safety standards were to change.

Dear Editor: I have been planning to contact the rail companies for some time on whistle noise and in particular regarding the area of the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing. I live near Capilano University and my bedroom

Rail bridge noise is a problem at night six to eight uncontrolled crossings where trains sound their whistles. Sometimes these whistles can seem unbelievably loud. My problem is not so much that they do this — I understand the rules and regulations and why they are in place — but when they

do it. I am often awakened at midnight, one or two a.m. by between 24 and 32 whistle blows; it seems to vary as a train moves west to east. I then can usually look forward to the same treatment about two hours later when the train returns

to the west side. If the rail companies really were good corporate neighbours they could at a minimum make these trips during daytime hours which I know they do sometimes. But there is no effort to do so judging by my experience. Suggesting they install

crossing arms at all these mostly minor crossings would no doubt cost a lot, but to make an effort to schedule this work at more appropriate times I am sure would be appreciated by many more than just myself. Scott McGillivray North Vancouver

We can all do our part to reduce unnecessary noise Dear Editor: I agree with everything Dwight Jones said in his Sept. 18 letter, Let the Mountain Speak. Something can be done to reduce noise. We have to let our elected representatives know how we feel. The medical and scientific communities

could add their support. With respect to the noise from the activation of car door locks while using a remote control, most car remotes can be set to flash the headlights when the remote is activated without the horn sounding. I believe many people opt to have the

CONTACTUS

horn sound because they like to walk away from the car and lock it without having to turn their heads to confirm that the headlights flashed. In other words, they are lazy. With respect to emergency vehicles, a 14year-old boy in Australia has just won a prize

at the Google Annual International Science Fair for his new signalling device for emergency vehicles. Such a device may help to reduce noise from emergency vehicles. I would add to Dwight’s list of noises that create stress and cause loss of sleep: gas-powered leaf

blowers; lawn edgers; hedge trimmers; lawn mowers. While I accept that rainy weather may dictate the use of gaspowered lawn mowers, there are lithium batteries to power all of these landscaping tools. The City of Santa Barbara, California has

banned the use of gaspowered leaf blowers and has regulations governing the use of electric-powered leaf blowers. Some landscaping contractors appear on a city video saying that they support the city’s policies. Robert Taylor West Vancouver

Friday, October 4, 2013 - North Shore News - A7

B.C.’s prosperity requires consensus British Columbia has long been known as a polarized province, where public debate and discourse is characterized by everyone seemingly having opposite views on many things. But a new study by two major business groups suggests continuing that approach will spell disaster for the provincial economy, and that the two solitudes had better start listening to each other if we want the province to prosper. The report, entitled The B.C. Agenda for Shared Prosperity, was completed after a year of study by the Business Council of B.C. and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce. It contains 60 recommendations on how to improve the economy, but its central theme is that groups who are normally locked in combat have to start working together for things to get better. Another key point the report’s authors make is that the disconnect that exists between many people who live in the Lower Mainland and their counterparts in the Interior and the North when it comes to economic issues has to be addressed. Greg D’Avignon, the CEO of the Business Council of B.C., says too many people who live in heavily urbanized areas like the Lower Mainland fail

Keith Baldrey

View from the Ledge to realize just how much the size of their paycheque depends on economic activity elsewhere in the province. Much of that economic activity is in the natural resource sector.Yet, as is typical of the polarized debate in B.C., that sector has become increasingly vilified by those who are dead set against many of the projects that are (or are planned to be) part of that activity. Projects such as the Northern Gateway pipeline, the Kinder Morgan pipeline, the Prosperity Mine, the Jumbo Glacier proposal, LNG plants and any number of other projects are potentially lucrative for the province’s economy yet are vehemently opposed by many who are more concerned about any potential impact on the environment.

Many of us are rightly concerned about our reliance on fossil fuels and the effects of climate change, but simply putting an immediate full-stop on all economic projects that perpetuate some of those problems is a recipe for economic disaster in B.C. Incomes for many have already stalled and the province’s productivity is lower than the national average. Putting blinkers on and pretending that we don’t need mining or energy projects displays a complete ignorance of how our provincial economy functions, and is a good way to shrink the size of your paycheque. If we take the “BANANA” approach (“Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anyone”), the price of all those lattes at Starbucks may begin to be beyond the reach of so many of those who take the view natural resources should stay in the ground, and not be sold. The answer, of course, is the proverbial middle ground. It’s not always attainable in this province, but as the business community’s report makes clear, it is vital that we strive to achieve it. The alternative is by no means attractive. Now, let’s all get along, shall we? •••

vending machines, according to TransLink’s vice-president of enterprise initiatives Mike Madill. “No money was changing hands.They supply the space and the power and we supply the machine,” Madill said. While not an exclusive deal, Madill said TransLink would need to deliberate carefully before putting the vending machines in other stores. “We’d have to still think about it because these machines are expensive machines and we’ve only got a limited supply so we want to make sure that we’re strategic in where they go,” he said. Madill could not say just how much the machines cost, but stressed their convenience. “They’ll provide an opportunity for customers

who don’t have credit cards or don’t feel comfortable loading their products over the phone.” Customers can also buy

and load their cards at transit stations. Some transit users have objected to the Compass system because the new

Liberals use blacktop politics

transportation decisions in the Lower Mainland. Critics, who include a number of local mayors, say there are other, more pressing transportation needs that should be addressed ahead of replacing the tunnel. Everyone evidently “forgot” that Clark made her original announcement about replacing the Massey Tunnel at last year’s UBCM. However, they are missing the point that

this project is, in many respects, a classic example of blacktop politics. For example, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson wants a rapid transit line built out to the University of B.C. But the election result has likely knocked that project far down the priority list as far as the provincial government is concerned. The City of Vancouver has, for the most part, turned its back on the B.C. Liberals. Of the city’s 11 ridings, seven are held by the NDP.

As I’ve noted here before, much of the B.C. Liberals’ political strength in terms of the voting population in the Lower Mainland lies south of the Fraser River. So it’s not a particular surprise to see a big project like the Massey Bridge suddenly get the greenlight from a government that knows where its base lies.

INQUIRING REPORTER They’re not real guns, but they sure can raise a police officer’s blood pressure. Last week, North Vancouver RCMP confiscated an airsoft shotgun and several pistols after a concerned resident reported teenagers toting firearms in the park. In what may be a precedent-setting decision, the Ontario Court of Appeal recently expanded the definition of firearms to include pellet guns. Is it just a matter of time before a fake gun provokes a real shooting, or should we trust youth to show good judgment with their toys? — Jeremy Shepherd

Sweat streams down the child’s face but he resists the urge to take off his hat or roll up his long sleeves. He would rather be uncomfortable than dark. Both far-reaching and deeply personal, Hue: A Matter of Colour begins with filmmaker Vic Sarin’s

memories of his mother steering him out of the sun and into the shade. Both Sarin and his mother accepted that dark skin is bad, but neither seemed to understand why. The documentary takes us from a Tanzanian compound built to ensure the safety of hunted albino children to the skin whitening industry of the Philippines. In each country and in each story, the focus is colour — not race. The notion of prejudice based on colour within a racial group has been with Sarin since his childhood, but it’s not something he was eager to put on film. “I thought: ‘Who would be interested in a subject like that? People

are tired of all the social issues all the time,’” he says, speaking in a pleasant grandfatherly tremble. The subject became more pressing as Sarin thought about colourism’s role in his own life. “You look back and you ask yourself; ‘Well, how did that affect me? On what level did that affect me?’ So for that you need time and history behind you.” Sarin speaks candidly in the film about the dissolution of his first marriage and his strained relationship with his oldest child. His second wife, who is Caucasian, talks about the distance between Sarin and his family. “I’ve always felt like an outsider,” Sarin says.

IAN PARKER AND SINFONIA PAGE 15

The sensation of being trapped in the wrong skin is tactfully examined in the movie through a conversation with Filipina cosmetician Elvie Pineda. Pineda has built an empire on the premise Filipinas want to be white. She could easily be cast as an opportunist peddling bleaches to the insecure and self-loathing if she wasn’t her own best customer. The entrepreneur quakes with emotion as she recalls being bullied and threats of rape. It was her brown skin that made her a target, she says. “One of these days — I’ll be white!” she recalls thinking. Both Pineda and her daughter — who refers

PHOENIX RISES PAGE 35

to herself as a “walking advertisement” for her mother’s business — offer very intriguing comments, but in one of the movie’s saddest moments the words are inconsequential. One of Pineda’s customers agrees to be filmed while she undergoes the skin whitening procedure. Sarin records her as she gets her first look at her pale skin. The procedure is a success, but the patient’s enthusiasm vanishes when she looks into the mirror. She seems wounded, and when Sarin asks her if it’s time to celebrate, she avoids answering directly.

When Canadian tenor Ken Lavigne was invited to perform at a “top secret” event at Government House in Victoria, he didn’t expect to end up getting parenting tips from royalty. But that’s exactly what happened when he arrived at the heavily secured venue, which, as it turned out, was hosting a reception for Prince Charles and Camilla as part of the couple’s 2009 cross-Canada tour. Before the concert,

Charles greeted Lavigne and his wife Alice, who had just given birth to their third child, a son, two weeks prior. “Where is the little lad now?” Lavigne, putting on a posh British accent, recalls Charles asking. When Alice replied she had left the newborn at coat check (he didn’t clear security) Lavigne says the prince doubled over with laughter. “He couldn’t stop laughing, he thought it was hilarious.” After composing himself, Charles turned to Lavigne in earnest. “He grips my hand, he pulls me in really close and he says ‘You know, the thing you have to understand about boys is you have to bond with them early.’” The unexpected words of advice left Lavigne See Company page 13

Company looking for new audience From page 12 speechless. “For all intents and purposes, he’s a really great guy and he was just a really neat person to meet and it’s something I will certainly remember forever.” Lavigne’s brush with royalty is one of many memorable moments the Vancouver Island singer has had over the course of his career. And he hopes to create more memories on Oct. 6 when he takes the stage at Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver. Copresented by City Opera Vancouver, the concert will also feature soprano Michelle Koebke and pianist David Boothroyd. In the first half of the program, the performers will present popular arias and duets from Romantic opera, including numbers by Puccini and Donizetti. The second half will focus on Broadway favourites, such as “Tonight” from West Side Story and “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables. “Our whole approach for choosing the repertoire is, essentially, let’s just choose the hits and choose the most accessible ones,” Lavigne says. “Not to say that we’re dumbing it down at all, because all of these songs are incredibly difficult to perform, but we just want to make sure that people come away with something memorable.” For someone who’s enjoyed singing his whole life, Lavigne admits he had a relatively late introduction to classical music. It was while studying voice at the University of Victoria that he first got his hands on a Pavarotti album.

Tenor Ken Lavigne has a long list of highlights on his operatic résumé. PHOTO SUPPLIED “I had never heard him sing, really, so I popped it in the CD player and I was mesmerized from the opening note. I couldn’t believe that any voice could be so powerful and beautiful and so passionate,” he says. “I went to my teacher and said ‘I have to sing like this guy,’ and she said ‘You’d better start practising then.’” And practise he did. To date, Lavigne has accumulated a long list of highlights on his operatic résumé. He co-founded The Canadian Tenors in 2004, with whom he gave more than 40 performances, made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2009 with the

NewYork Pops, and, in addition to singing for Prince Charles, he has also performed for Queen Elizabeth II and GrammyAward winning record producer David Foster.

New Homes Registry Keeps Homebuyers Informed This helpful, easy-to-use, online resource is available from the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) website at www.hpo.bc.ca. Savvy homebuyers are using it to make more informed purchasing decisions. The New Homes Registry provides free access to find out if a home has a policy of home warranty insurance and is built by a Licensed Residential Builder, or whether it’s built without home warranty insurance. Homebuyers can obtain valuable information such as the name and contact number of the warranty provider, the builder’s warranty number and whether an ownerbuilt home can be legally offered for sale. Every new home built for sale by a Licensed Residential Builder in British Columbia is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. Better known as 2-5-10 home warranty insurance, this coverage includes: two years on labour and materials, five years on the building envelope (including water penetration), and 10 years on the structure. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. For free access to the New Homes Registry visit the Homebuyers section of the HPO website.

Koebke feeds off crowd’s energy From page 13 first introductions into heavier classical singing,” she says, recalling the many music competitions she entered in her teens. An advocate for live entertainment, she hopes this weekend’s concert will attract people who might not otherwise go to the opera. “You’re creating an experience for your lifetime by going out to these live events,” she says. “I remember concerts I went to when I was a child, but I don’t really remember what TV shows I watched on TV last week.” Koebke was 12 when her parents took her to see The Phantom of the Opera. “I remember getting my hair all done up and we went out for dinner and we got the little gummy bears at the intermission and read the program notes and I was just in awe of everything,” she says. “It’s very fulfilling as an audience member because you’re part of something that is a live thing.” A symbiotic relationship exists between the audience and the performer, Koebke says, explaining she feeds off the energy of the crowd. “When I have a positive supportive audience, sometimes things come out that I didn’t even expect at all and it’s magic because it’s live.” Looking forward, City Opera already has plans to return to West Vancouver in the new year. “What we’re doing on October 6 is the first in what we hope will be a long-lived series,” says City Opera conductor and artistic director Charles Barber. The company’s next Kay Meek show on Feb. 23, 2014 is entitled Meeting Mozart. Like the rest of the series, it is intended to appeal to a wide demographic. “Kids are entitled to discover this extraordinary music, and people who are older than kids are entitled to rediscover it, and we try desperately to be welcoming to both,” Barber says.

Gershwin tune on program

From page 15

of course I still went to see him,” says Parker. Fox — who was working on Spin City then and is currently starring in new NBC sitcom The Michael J. Fox Show — quickly put Parker at ease and they swapped stories about their shared hometown, as well as elementary and high schools. “We talked about growing up and trying to make it as an artist,” recalls Parker. The memory is a fond one. Parker, now 35, splits his time between Vancouver and NewYork City.The professional musician has completed bachelor and masters degrees at Julliard. He released two

albums in 2010 — solo record Moonlight Fantasies and a collaboration with the London Symphony. He continues to tour internationally and has performed as a guest artist with a host of philharmonic orchestras. Parker has maintained his relationship with Mitchell and is excited to be taking the stage with him yet again tomorrow evening with Lions Gate Sinfonia at Centennial Theatre at the kick-off concert to the ensemble’s 2013-2014 season.The last time he performed under Mitchell’s baton was in 2010. At Rhapsody!, Parker is set to perform the same work he did all those years ago at the Burnaby concert hall’s

opening, George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.” As a teenager, he says he viewed the 1924 work as a fun, cartoon-like, playful, animated work. “The older you get, you start to notice a lot of the more beautiful sides of darkness and sadness that there is as well — melancholy,” he says. “I know that NewYork was a really up and down place in the 1920s and for George Gershwin to reflect that type of character of life in his music is so great.” “Life is an evolution and music is one of the great instruments and channels, or paths, to evolve in life with.

Oil in the family called Orazio’s Olive Oil, which produces and exports organic cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil from his family olive grove in Italy.

NEWS PHOTO CINDY GOODMAN

West Vancouver resident Orazio Scaldaferri displays some of his olive oil. Scan with Layar for a video showing how his oil is made.

ROSALIND DUANE rduane@nsnews.com

Orazio Scaldaferri is not a fan of blended olive oils. “If you want chili pepper in your olive oil just add it to your pasta, to your sauce, you don’t really have to put it in your oil,” he says. His favourite way to eat olive oil is to toast a few slices of quality crusty bread, drizzle a dab of oil on top

and finish with a sprinkle of salt. He has also been known to combine olive oil with a few drops of balsamic vinegar and just dip the bread in it. Scaldaferri (seen in the photo above), is a West Vancouver real estate agent by day and knows what he’s talking about when it comes to the golden liquid. For the past five years, he has been working with his family on a unique venture

This isn’t the first food venture for the family, which previously owned Peppi’s restaurant at Dundarave Pier for 30 years before it was sold in 1994 and became The Beach House Restaurant. “Our interest in food has always been very high,” says Scaldaferri. An olive grove in Calabria has been in the family for generations, and not long ago they decided to expand their oil production, which previously only tapped into the Italian market, by teaming with a neighbour who owned more olive trees and a mill. “Olive oil is a very delicate and it’s a very precise sort of product,” notes Scaldaferri. The olives are picked in the fall and are milled within 24

hours in order to comply with a strict certification process.

“It’s the purest and it is also the highest in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.”

The oil is called “extra virgin” because it’s the first press, the first juice that comes out of the olives.

When it comes to choosing an olive oil, Scaldaferri suggests considering the acidity content. “The higher

the acidity content the more pungent, strong the oil tastes,” he explains, adding different oils do not taste the same. “They each have a distinct personality. It’s like wine except wine gets better with age.”

Considering the source CHRIS DAGENAIS Contributing writer

I have noticed that reading a menu in a restaurant these days has become a time-consuming undertaking. In many establishments, menus read like shopping lists, with the names of food suppliers appearing front and centre in the description of dishes. Does this trend point to the inevitable, insidious conclusion of modern consumerism? Does our food require prominent branding, even on a restaurant menu, to persuade us that Product A is better than Product B? Or is there another phenomenon at play here, perhaps something less sinister? To research the answers to these questions, I recently spent a morning with Jason Pleym, whose Two Rivers Specialty Meats in North Vancouver bridges the gap between small B.C. farms and numerous restaurants around the city.

Two Rivers buys the small supply of meats produced by a dozen or so local farms and, through dry aging, skilled butchery, and ingenious curing techniques, transforms it into highly sought-after raw cuts and ready-to-eat products. These practices resonate with chefs and consumers looking for alternatives to mass-produced, “factory meat” products. “Nine times out of 10 on a menu you don’t know where the meat is coming from,” says Pleym. “The sales guy can’t tell you, the company can’t tell you because they just don’t know.” Pleym and his wife began Two Rivers Specialty Meats in 2007 with a view to demonstrating to chefs and diners that it was possible, even preferable, to be able to reliably trace the origins of the meat products

we consume. They have carefully chosen the partner farms that supply the store based on a set of criteria that includes the absence of hormones or antibiotics and the ethical treatment of livestock. The rapid growth of the company suggests that the Pleyms have tapped into a strong appetite in the market. Their headquarters, featuring a full-wall welcome message that reads “Nice to meat you,” is currently in expansion mode, increasing

their butchery, storage, and sales capacities. Two Rivers dry ages their meat, removing much of the water, resulting in robust, flavourful products that don’t lose half their size when cooked. Operations like these, which diligently source limited quantities of top quality, responsibly produced meats, can make a positive impact in their regional markets. However, for the local, small-scale farming model to work everywhere, consumers must first be

willing to change their habits. On the surface, it may seem counter-intuitive for a purveyor of meats to suggest that we need to eat less of it, but Pleym emphatically believes that if we are to affect real change in our relationship with the natural world, we need to curb our persistent tendency to give in to our every craving or indulge our need for instant gratification. “Habits absolutely need to change,” says Pleym. “We consume a lot more than we need and the stuff that we do consume is easy, fast and convenient. What are the implications of easy, fast and convenient? Mass production and volume.” Despite a small, direct-toconsumer sales program (available by special order only), the vast majority of Two Rivers Specialty Meat products are still only available at restaurants around the province. All the more reason to go out for dinner, in my opinion. Check out a longer version of this story on nsnews.com.

Ready for root vegetables JAMI SCOTT contributing writer

Have you ever been stuck in a fruit or vegetable rut when you just can’t seem to buy anything other than your usual produce items? Eating fruits and vegetables that are in season and locally grown is always better than eating fresh foods shipped from across the world. Have you ever noticed that you’ll start craving things

more at certain times of the year? Right now all I want is root vegetables and apples and they seem to taste so much better than three months ago when all I was craving was fresh, raw summer vegetables. One of my favourite side dishes for the season is roasted root vegetables. Cube up sweet potatoes and yams, toss with a bit of olive oil and thyme (or your favourite dried herb), and bake until just browning.

Get creative and throw in some of your other favourite roots like beets or rutabaga, or try roasting potatoes until they’re browned, then toss with a bit of lemon juice, salt, and flat leaf parsley. It’s so simple and the flavour combination is delicious. Root vegetables and squash provide a source of fibre, and slow-digesting carbohydrates, which help to keep your energy consistent throughout the day. They are full of

to FASHION & STYLE

Phoenix rises in Ambleside Fashion institution quits mall for Marine

French Laundry, whose fabric and lightweight leather panel dress is right on trend. The most lavish items in the store are $600 furtrimmed cashmere shawls, but there are affordable fashions as well. “We’re really price conscious,” says Rockwell, explaining that today’s style-savvy shopper has the confidence to build an outfit from a blend of brands. “You don’t have to stick yourself in one designer or one price point anymore.” Rockwell has been in this business a long time. Before Phoenix, she co-operated Zebra on Robson Street. Still, she’s not afraid to put in long hours, working 14hour days to set up the new shop. “I strung every crystal myself,” she says of the three globe-shape chandeliers suspended above the central cash desk and accessories display cases. At night, they illuminate the store like a glittering jewel box. And four decades in the business have not dampened her enthusiasm for fashion. “Look at this line,” Rockwell says, showing me Sympli, a collection of easy-wear, easy-care slinky knits made in Canada. She pulls a lacy black tunic from the rack. “This is what I wore for the store opening — with leggings and . . .,” pausing, tongue in cheek, “too much jewelry.” Some things never change.

After 28 years in Park Royal, Phoenix boutique owner Lin Rockwell felt it was time to go. And she’s glad she did. The fashion industry veteran packed up her designer brands and trademark bling and last Saturday celebrated the opening of a new store at the corner of 15th and Marine Drive in the heart of Ambleside. The former site of Dream apparel and home accessories has the cool vibe of a Soho loft.With its 20-foot ceiling and doubleheight windows, “The place is too big and too expensive for us. But we just had to do it,” says Rockwell, who owns and operates the women’s fashion and accessories boutique with daughter, Sasha. “Everything looks so much better in here,” she enthuses, casting a smoky eye across the room. Exposed rafters and ductwork painted grey add to the raw, industrial feel of the space, while a pair of zebra hides strewn across the bare concrete floor look effortlessly chic. As for the merchandise, rhinestones and gold add sparkle to basic black and this season’s jewel tones, animal prints and lace for a glamorous assortment. What came over from the old store?

Parker will also perform Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The concert will provide a unique opportunity for local youths as 18 North Shore Registered Music Teachers’ Association piano students will be featured. “I think it’s amazing that the North Shore branch of the Registered Music (Teachers’) Association has put together this opportunity,” says Parker. “How lucky are these kids that they can get up onstage with an orchestra of that calibre and be able to play? When I was growing up, you could never get an opportunity like that.” Sinfonia’s new season includes six performances as well as the orchestra’s first two matinee performances.

FILM

Discussion of colour often taboo From page 11

skill in getting his subjects to reveal themselves on camera. “Because I’m an older person now, I have grey hair now, people respond differently,” he says. “Once they had a trust with you, they wanted themselves to open up because they had been keeping this inside also for a very, very long time and they just wanted an outlet.” A 32-year-old Indian actress discusses her dark skin and its affect on her marriage prospects. Uttering a melancholy laugh, she talks about a one-legged man whose mother thought he could do better than to end up with a dark-skinned wife. “I also found the women were much more easy to deal with in that direction,” Sarin says. “They are far more open than men. Men . . . are much more into analyzing it and women are much more on an emotional level, human level to talk. So I think it was a good balance.” The movie intrigues us by suggesting colourism’s roots preceded colonialism, but moves on without exploring the subject in detail. “Right from the beginning of time, the colour of goddesses was white,” says an Indian craftsman as he applies ivory paint to a deity’s face. “This film is not about us versus them. It’s about us versus us,” Sarin says. “A lot

of people of my ethnic background . . . often they have been pointing fingers at others, which are mostly Caucasians, and colonization and all that stuff. It’s very easy to point fingers at the other side but they never look at themselves and their own behaviour. And that to me is very important. Before you say to someone else to clean their house you should take a look at your own house.” While people will openly discuss height or weight, colour is often off-limits in polite conversation. “We have become so politically tight that we cannot breathe even sometimes,” Sarin says. “The physical chemistry will always be there.” Sarin had briefly considered narrowing his focus to Canada and India, but ultimately decided the subject was too big to be narrowed. “This touches almost three-quarters of the world population, I can’t just go to where I was born and here. No, it’s much bigger than that,” he says. Sarin says he knew nothing of the Philippines or Africa prior to making the documentary, but that only added to the story’s appeal. “This is what I love about documentaries is that you go and you discover. . . . If you already know what’s there, I don’t want to do those films,” he says. “Each time, each path takes you someplace and magic happens.”

Charles Wilkinson’s new documentary Oil Sands Karaoke is screening today at 7 p.m. at International Village #10 as part of the Vancouver International Film Festival. The film has additional screenings Oct. 6 at Vancity Theatre at 2:30 p.m. and Oct. 11 at SFU Woodward’s at 1:30 p.m. For an interview with Wilkinson go to nsnews.com/entertainment.

Aston Martin’s odd bird grounded for good BRENDAN MCALEER ContributingWriter

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

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, redesigned in 2013, basically takes all the comfort of a top-of-the-line luxury sedan and puts it in a package that can carry seven passengers and go off-road. The price, however, is also top-of-the-line. PHOTO SUPPLIED

GL SUV a big beauty

For customers wanting an S-Class but needing the versatility to carry seven passengers, MercedesBenz offers the GL-Class. This large SUV shares many traits with its sedan sibling, such as a serenely quiet cabin, butter-smooth suspension and plenty of power. When Mercedes introduced the GL in 2006, it got a lot of people’s attention because of its “massive beauty” — but it wasn’t perfect.The engine power was not bad, but lagged behind a few of its rivals; its fuel economy was not great, and some of the

included a fresh exterior and interior design and new safety features.The available engines were also improved to increase power and fuel economy. 2014 sees the addition of new options, notably the Splitview Comand display and a new transmission mode. Also, the GL 63 AMG arrives in showrooms this year.

interior features needed improving. The GL-Class was redesigned for 2013 and addressed all of these issues, and more. Notable changes

Design While the current GL-Class doesn’t look significantly different from the original, it actually has about 1,000 new parts and is now slightly larger.

Behind the Wheel

Mercedes listened to its customers and made a lot of improvements inside and now the GL boasts an even more luxurious cabin than before. Mercedes-Benz has always been a leader in safety and technology.To allow as many customers to benefit from their innovations as possible, every GL comes with standard features such as Collision Prevention Assist, Attention Assist and PreSafe.

Aston Martin strangles the Cygnet In the children’s book, the Ugly Duckling turns out to grow into a beautiful swan. Seemingly without a hint of irony, Aston Martin has been selling a rebadged version of the Toyota iQ as the Cygnet (the term for a baby swan) for the past few years. Let’s just say the corporate beak looks a little out of place on a city runabout. I suppose the Bond connection would work if it folded up into a suitcase, but it sadly does not. AM’s justification for the car was that it could be used in the same way a luxury yacht has smaller craft which it dispatches while in harbour — call it an automotive dinghy. Drive one’s DB9 on the weekend, but pop down to the shops in a nicely appointed tinker toy that’s easier to park than a bicycle. In reality, the Cygnet’s extremely low emissions also allowed the supercar maker to balance out its whacking great V-12s, bringing the See Parts page 53

New engines more powerful and efficient

From page 49

standard and a lot of nice luxuries like the electronic power tailgate. One area the GL falls a little short in comparison to some of its rivals is that it only seats seven, whereas others can seat eight — but this is a non-issue since the owners of these high-end SUVs probably only carry a few passengers at a time. Performance The biggest improvements have occurred under the hood. The GL-Class is available with either an all-new diesel V-6 or one of two new gasoline V-8s. The V-6 engine is a direct-injected, 3.0-litre, clean-diesel turbo, and is a wonderful engine and comes highly recommended. It is rated at 240 horsepower and a brawny 455 footpounds of torque. The most popular engine will likely be the 4.6-litre, gas-powered V-8. It has a twin turbo and is also direct injected. The GL 450 produces 362 h.p. and 406 foot-

pounds of torque. If that’s not enough for you, the GL 550 bumps those numbers up to 429 and 516, respectively. And if you want more still, the GL 63 AMG tops out at 550 h.p. and 560 foot-pounds of torque with its 5.5-litre Bi-Turbo V-8. The bottom line on all of the engines is that while they’re very powerful, they also provide better fuel economy than the previous generation.This is where the GL 350 BlueTEC stands out with its 8.6 l/100 km highway rating. The GL-Class is not a performance crossover SUV by any means, so 0-100 kilometres per hour times are not relevant. But rest assured that these vehicles will get you where you want to go in plenty of time and do so quietly and smoothly. The V-8s are particularly impressive in terms of performance, as with most Mercedes V-8 models. The seven-speed transmission has been enhanced with the new temporary manual ‘M’ mode.This mode allows the driver to make manual gear changes but the system will

automatically revert back to auto mode after a defined time if there has been no input from the driver. The GL’s capabilities are not limited just to the highway. It also impresses off-road, while keeping its passengers safe and comfortable.

Environment Obviously in a vehicle of this size, cabin space is not an issue.There is plenty of leg and headroom in all three rows and it still offers 295 litres of cargo space. The available electronic easy entry system makes access to the rear two rows a breeze. Fit and finish is equal to Mercedes-Benz’s impeccable standards and the occupants are surrounded by soft-touch surfaces and wood or metal accents. The standard sunroof is nice, but upgrading to the full panoramic sunroof truly enhances the open, airy feeling. Mercedes-Benz designers have made a lot of improvements to the dash and centre consol.The gear

There’s a lot to like in the GL’s dash, including an innovative new Splitview option that allows the driver and passenger to view different content at the same time. PHOTO SUPPLIED shifter used to be located in the centre and took up a lot of space. It has been moved to the steering column to clean up the area. Now there’s more room for the optional climate controlled cup holders. The Mercedes Comand system continues to be one of the best in the industry. The GL boasts a new HD

screen which is very easy to read.The innovative Splitview is an option that enables the driver and front passenger to view different content at the same time. Features The GL 350 BlueTEC starts at $74,900.The GL 450 and the GL 550 begin at $77,100 and $99,100,

respectively.The top-of-theline GL 63 AMG is priced at $126,400. Standard equipment includes two-zone climate control, integrated garage door opener, heated steering wheel, power folding third row seats, Parktronic with Active Parking Assist, and See Competitors page 54

Parts companies caught colluding From page 49 company’s average fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions down by being, literally, the weakest link. A bit of a cynical move, but there you go. Then they had the cheek to charge $50,000 for the thing, but again, it actually seemed to sell well for a while, and even Stirling Moss bought one. Happily, improvements throughout the range now mean that Aston doesn’t need the pint-sized outlier to dodge average-consumption restrictions.The 97 horsepower Cygnet has squawked its last. Land Rover facing best problem ever: Demand too high With an entirely revamped lineup, British luxury-welly maker Land Rover has been making headlines for huge weight reduction, greatly improved fuel consumption, and even greater desirability.The old “best four by four by far” tagline is starting to look like it actually might apply to the brand, which is experiencing record-breaking sales. Unfortunately, the Range Rover and Land Rover lines are so popular that the factory isn’t even close to keeping up with demand. Currently, the full-sized Range Rover is sitting at an average six-month wait world wide, and the newly launched Sport has a waiting list stretching out over nine months.You wait

that long for a Royal Baby these days. It’s a great problem to have, in theory, as being in-demand shows that both the engineering and the marketing teams are doing their jobs. However, with rumoured SUVs coming from Bentley and the new small Evoque-fighting Porsche Macan crossover on the way, Land Rover’s production lag could end up costing them sales. Parts manufacturers face massive fines In a historic decision, the U.S. Department of Justice has handed out more than US$740 million in fines to nine Japanese parts suppliers as part of a huge price-fixing scandal. Big names like Mitsubishi Electric and Hitachi were accused of colluding to keep the pricing of parts sold to U.S. companies artificially inflated — this includes selling to U.S.-based Toyota plants. Not only does the practice of price-fixing hurt auto manufacturers’ bottom lines and create unfair competition, it also ensures that costs are passed along to the consumer — at the end of the chain, you and I are the ones who end up paying for all this. Something like 25 million parts ranging from powerwindow switches to electric fans were sold at overinflated prices. Currently, nine companies and two executives have been found guilty and handed extensive fines and jail time.

Three-legged Mini engine on the way With the newest Mini Cooper set to debut in a month (spy shots have already been snapped of test cars out on the roads in shakedown trials), some details have leaked out about what’s going to be powering the retro-cute machine. While a turbocharged four-cylinder returns to motivate Cooper S models — now with 189 h.p. — the real news is with the base engine. Replacing the peppy

little naturally aspirated 1.5litre four cylinder is a new turbocharged three-cylinder engine boasting a modest 135 h.p., but a very decent 162 foot-pounds of torque. Mini’s overboost function allows quick on-ramp blasts of up to 170 foot-pounds, which is about as much as the sporty Abarth version of the Fiat 500, probably the closest competitor. One fewer cylinder and one more turbocharger makes good sense from an engineering standpoint, but given what they charge for

these fashionable city cars, one has to wonder whether or not the type of powertrain once seen in a Pontiac Firefly is really going to be fitting in a luxury accessory. We shall see. Micra to return to Canada This is just a rumour, so don’t get too excited, but industry insiders are reporting there’s a chance that the all-new Nissan Micra could make its way to Canadian shores, even though it’s not bound for the U.S. The Micra has a bit of a cult following here as a nofrill machine that returned decent fuel economy and

was the epitome of cheap and cheerful. A friend of mine had one in university with the two-speed automatic, and it was a bit like driving a ride-on lawnmower where instead of “Rabbit” and “Tortoise” settings, you simply had two Tortoise speeds, one a bit noisier. Still, it was a characterfull little car and only needed refuelling seemingly three times a year.The new car has a 97 h.p. 1.2-litre supercharged three-cylinder, which should be plenty miserly, but perhaps a little bit less miserable. Here’s hoping. brakingnews@gmail.com
