Greenpeace stages oilsands protest Activists occupy Westridge oil terminal
BRENT RICHTER email@example.com
Greenpeace activists occupied Kinder Morgan’s Westridge oil terminal in Burrard Inlet for more than 12 hours Wednesday, hoping to upstage events in Ottawa. Sixteen Greenpeace members snuck in just before sunrise Wednesday morning to chain themselves to gates and oil infrastructure and to unfurl banners calling for an end to Alberta oilsands and pipeline development. The timing of Wednesday’s protest, some of which was staged from Cates Park in North Vancouver, was meant not so much to disrupt oil exports from the facility — none were scheduled for that part of the week — but rather to “send a message to Prime Minister Harper” during the 2013 Speech from the Throne in Ottawa Wednesday afternoon. “Whether we’re physically stopping operations or just sending a message out, we hope that it’s strong enough to turn the prime minister in a different direction and strengthen the resolve of Premier (Christy) Clark who has started to waver on her stance of defending the coast,” said Mike Hudema, climate and energy campaigner for Greenpeace Canada. Activists came prepared to stay in chains overnight

and were willing to face arrest, if needed, Hudema said, but by 7:30 p.m., activists opened their padlocks and went home. “Once the throne speech was read and we felt we delivered that message, we were happy to voluntarily come down and end the protest,” Hudema said.

Colliers unveils NV waterfront plan JULES KNOX firstname.lastname@example.org
The City of North Vancouver’s waterfront has the potential to be a restaurant and retail destination along the lines of Granville Island, says a report presented to
council Oct. 7. Items up for discussion include a hotel expansion, several restaurants — including the repurposing of the PGE Station — blending Lonsdale Quay eastwards into the new district, the creation of a new park that includes an outdoor skating
rink and an underground parking lot. The retail strategy, prepared by Colliers International, will be considered along with public input before council makes any decisions on a ﬁnal plan for the waterfront development, which extends

Off the streets and into the kitchen HAVE program expands to North Shore
BRENT RICHTER email@example.com
Finding a job and making ends meet is hard enough, even when you don’t have to struggle with mental or physical disability, poverty, addiction or homelessness. That’s where HAVE Culinary Training Society comes in. After eight weeks of customized kitchen training, students emerge with some serious help to get over those barriers and a foot in the door to a career in the hospitality industry. The non-proﬁt program recently expanded from the Downtown Eastside to the Lookout Emergency Aid Society’s North Shore shelter and graduated its ﬁrst four students, all of whom are now working in North Shore restaurants. “They head out and in 86 per cent of the cases in six years, they’ve got a job,” said Ian Tostenson, who cofounded HAVE with fellow

the protestors had been arrested though the RCMP still have that option, Hudema noted. Kinder Morgan is applying to the National Energy Board to twin it’s TransMountain pipeline from central Alberta to the Burnaby terminal, which would almost triple the capacity of the pipeline to a total of 890,000 barrels of oil and bitumen per day. Tanker trafﬁc in Burrard Inlet from the facility would go from about ﬁve per month now to more than 30. “That’s something we deﬁnitely don’t want to see,” Hudema said, “What we know is that we’re in a climate-constrained world and we’re already seeing superstorms, we’re seeing intense ﬂoods, we’re seeing more and more extreme weather events taking place all the time because of climate change, and we need to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions immediately
in order for us to continue thriving on this planet.” Asked to respond to Greenpeace’s argument that Kinder Morgan is fuelling climate change, Kinder Morgan Andrew Galarnyk spoke about the process. “We have a project that we’re looking to expand: our pipeline for the customers who have determined there is a market need for it. Just as other pipeline projects that are being put forward, we are approaching our project with an open and transparent approach to sharing factual information and we’ll ﬁle an application at the end of this year and let the board determine whether or not our project is approved for expansion,” he said. Any pipeline expansion work that happens will make human and environmental safety a top priority, Galarnyk added. Greenpeace last staged a process on the North Shore in May 2012, when activists rappelled from the edge of the Lions Gate Bridge to unfurl an anti-pipeline banner.
more than 600 students who’ve graduated, about 77 per cent are still working in restaurants, and Tostenson said, and they often
become valued as the “best employees” in their business, because they have so much invested in their own success. It costs about $3,500 to
put a student through the eight-week program, which is mostly covered by federal grants, though there is a near instant return on investment,
Tostenson said. “They’ve gone from social assistance, which is just over $7,000 a year to earning $20,000 a year and actually paying taxes,” he said. Tostenson attributes HAVE’s success to the way they greet and interact with their very marginalized students. “The magic is that HAVE is built around total individual respect.When people come in through our doors, the ﬁrst thing they get is support and respect as a person. In many cases, those are things that those people have not felt for years.They’ve been basically written off and shunned,” he said. The Lookout Society, which runs the North Shore Shelter, approached HAVE and asked if they’d consider expanding onto the North Shore. Getting into the HAVE program is as simple as walking through door and saying “I want to work here,” Tostenson said. From there, applicants are screened, mainly for how serious they are about completing the program. All three North Shore mayors recently sat down for lunch at the shelter’s kitchen to welcome HAVE to North Vancouver.
Glass reef protection sought Fragile glass sponges thought extinct until 1980s JANE SEYD firstname.lastname@example.org
A group of international scientists and conservationists travelled deep below the ocean’s surface offWestVancouver and Howe Sound this week, exploring some extraordinary glass sponge reefs. The glass sponge reefs are made by creatures that date back to the Jurassic era and are so rare in the world that, until recently, they were thought to be extinct. When scientists conﬁrmed the existence of the reefs deep in B.C. waters, it was like discovering “a herd of dinosaurs,” said Sabine Jessen, oceans director with the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, who lives in North Vancouver. This week, the
Sabine Jessen photographs fragile glass sponges on the ocean ﬂoor near Passage Island on Tuesday. Use the Layar app to see more photos. PHOTO BRUCE KIRKBY conservation group partnered with the North Vancouver submersible ﬁrm Nuytco Research to lead an expedition to the reefs, found in about 75 metres of water near Passage Island. From a mini submarine, they ﬁlmed the intricate tubular structures of the reefs, which are created by the prehistoric sponges, and
vaguely resemble coral reefs. The glass sponge reefs, made out of silica, are unique to B.C., said Jessen, because “there are very few places in the world that have so much dissolved silica.” In some places, like the northern waters of Hecate Strait where the reefs are found as deep as 200 metres, the reefs can reach 14 metres
in height — the height of a ﬁve-storey building, she said. Jessen said the glass sponge reefs play an important role in the marine ecosystem, providing habitat and keeping the ocean clean by feeding on bacteria. But Jessen said the glass sponge reefs are also under See Trawl page 5

tourists,” said David Bell, a retail planning consultant at Colliers International. He estimates that approximately 75 per cent of the area’s usage will be from North Shore residents. The space should be turned into a destination waterfront restaurant district that mixes with infrastructure such as the Spirit Trail, said Bell. The ideas that have been put forward balance local interests, ﬁll market gaps and build on existing amenities such as Lonsdale Quay, said Bell.The water will be used as a centrepiece, and 24-hour activities will be generated throughout the year, he said. “Patio space is critical,” said Bell. “Restaurants are looking for more and more outdoor seating throughout the year, covered and heated, and it’s an excellent

way of activating space.” Based on preliminary numbers, Bell said the proposed retail space is expected to generate approximately $900,000 in revenues for the city. However, some are concerned about the proposed hotel expansion on Lot 5. “This property belongs to the people and should be off-limits to private developers,” said local resident Sandra Grant. Another challenge the area is facing is a limited number of parking spaces. The report recommends that part of Lot 5 could be developed into underground parking. Bell notes that a signiﬁcant portion of Lot 5 could still be retained as an open space, possibly a grass amphitheatre. “We don’t want to create a concrete jungle,” he said. Because of a lack of
regular vehicular trafﬁc in the area, the plan also notes that future establishments will have to rely on wordof-mouth and regular event programming to generate a regular customer base. In response to Coun. Guy Heywood’s concerns about liquor licensing agreements, Bell admitted that the report didn’t vet the restrictive clauses that might prevent some of the proposed food and beverage services from moving forward. “We were looking at this from a market perspective,” he said, noting that city council should consider any licensing issues while evaluating the report’s recommendations. The report also recommends creating a management structure similar to Granville Island’s, which would be responsible for overseeing the success of the area.
Colliers International will be responsible for marketing and managing the retail lease opportunities in the area after city council passes a development plan. The city held a public meeting at the Pinnacle Hotel on Sept. 16 and offered an online survey where residents could express their ideas for the waterfront. Both the public’s input and the Colliers report will be used in the ﬁnal evaluation of a development plan.

threat, from bottom trawlers dragging for bottom feeders and other ﬁsheries. Fishing near the bottom of the ocean also stirs up sediments that can cover and kill the sponges. Jessen said conservationists are now pushing for long-term protection for all of the glass sponge reefs, including those in local waters. Read a longer version of this story at nsnews.com.

VIEWPOINT PUBLISHED BY NORTH SHORE NEWS A DIVISION OF LMP PUBLICATION LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, 100-126 EAST 15TH STREET, NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. V7L 2P9. DOUG FOOT, PUBLISHER. CANADIAN PUBLICATIONS MAIL SALES PRODUCT AGREEMENT NO. 40010186.
No rush for Lot 5 T
he plan unveiled by Colliers International last week for the City of North Vancouver’s waterfront district is a common-sense approach to creating a destination experience for shoppers and restaurant-goers. It’s now up to area residents and council to help reﬁne that plan. Colliers has gone to considerable lengths to assess how a restaurant/retail area might function to the east of Lonsdale Quay and whether or not such a district would compete for customers with existing North Shore businesses. The company has much experience in the ﬁeld and will act as the city’s leasing agent — much as Granville Island is operated. While it exciting to imagine this area coming fully to life with repurposed heritage buildings after years of construction, local residents may want to
consider just how a “destination” district functions.Will customers drive there and where will they park? The discussion over the use of Lot 5 is likely to be the most interesting. This vacant site is suggested by Colliers to house a hotel expansion, a banquet facility, a possible adjunct to Capilano University, a ﬁtness centre, bike rentals, entertainment such as a movie house, theatre and/or a comedy club, and, ﬁnally, a waterfront park with an outdoor rink. Each of these ideas has merit, but it’s important to remember that Lot 5 was to have been the site of a public museum and the public feels the area should function for them. Mayor Darrell Mussatto is reﬂecting that with his idea for a giant Ferris wheel. In the end, leaving the Lot 5 options open as long as possible may well be the best decision to make right now.

Dear Editor: I am disgusted about the cuts to the arts at Capilano University and, in particular, that this is viewed as a satisfactory solution to inadequate government funding.This, at a time
of growth in the arts on the North Shore, e.g. the Gordon Smith Gallery, the Centre for Art, Architecture and Design envisioned and approved in West Vancouver and the new home for Presentation House Gallery
Tax rebate for construction Dear Editor: I live in the Upper Lonsdale area and ﬁnd getting anywhere in North Vancouver in a timely fashion next to impossible. Not long ago, there were major disruptions at 15th and St. George’s, and at 15th and 17th at Lonsdale.To get home I needed to detour with many other drivers way out of my way to avoid these construction zones. Could some of the work
be done in the evening when trafﬁc is lighter or, as a previous letter writer suggested, be staggered to minimize inconvenience? Perhaps city hall should give the affected locals a break on our property taxes during these construction inconveniences. After all, don’t our taxes entitle us to, amongst other services, the use of our roads? Bill MacMillan North Vancouver
in North Vancouver.This decision to chop at the arts programs seems to be an expedited effort to balance a budget, and it seems there was no creative consideration given to a new vision of the university, to rebrand or
re-invent. How short sighted! Perhaps every student at Capilano University should be required to take one elective course in the arts. The community at large deserves some creative thought applied to the
philosophical vision of this university.We need to ensure we adequately serve our future generations with more arts education, rather than less. Carole Arnston West Vancouver
Suffering carves character Dear Editor: Despite your editorial to the contrary (Suffer No More, Oct. 13), I am overjoyed at the Carter appeal judgment that will protect senior citizens and vulnerable adults from the trauma of knowing that euthanasia and assisted suicide are sanctioned in law. Senior citizens continue to contribute greatly
to society.They often ﬁnancially assist their children who are struggling, they provide child care for grandchildren, are available for unexpected needs and bring the family together for special celebrations. Grandchildren learn compassion and tenderness for the elderly through the grandparents they love. When the end of life comes, though the burden may be
great, the humanity of the children and grandchildren grows in proportion to the difﬁculties and life takes on an unexpected sweetness. No one loses dignity but everyone gains love.We are far too quick to want to get rid of our contradictions and sufferings, yet it is in these that our character is carved. Barbara Stuart North Vancouver
Dear Editor: I agree wholeheartedly with your Oct. 13 editorial regarding “assisted suicide.” However, I think proponents should use more positive terminology. I strongly object to the use of the word “suicide.” It is not a mental health issue at all, but one which has been calmly and carefully considered. “Right to die with dignity” may be a little long but it is much more positive. God forbid that this should ever happen to me or my loved ones, but if it does, I wish to have the legal right to have it dealt with in a positive, compassionate, and timely manner.

It’s hard being green for Christy Clark Ever since she became leader of the B.C. Liberal party, Christy Clark has sought to distance herself from her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, whenever possible. She may be doing it again when it comes to dealing with climate change. Campbell loved to boast that B.C. was leading all of North America when it came to ﬁghting climate change. He set ambitious targets, enshrined in law, for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (33 per cent of 2007 levels by 2020) and brought in the carbon tax. But soon after Campbell unveiled his ambitious plan, the world economy collapsed and a recession ensued. Suddenly, governments — including B.C.’s — experienced plunging revenues and massive deﬁcits. The reverberations from that economic disaster continue to be felt.The Clark government, like many others, is still hungry for revenues and less interested in spending a lot of time talking about things like carbon credit schemes and greenhouse gas emissions. While her government insists it is still committed to achieving the targets set out by Campbell, the centrepiece of its economic strategy is massive industrial activity that could greatly increase GHG emissions.
View from the Ledge
The creation of liqueﬁed natural gas plants in the northwest, for example, will greatly increase the amount of natural gas burned to create energy. That, combined with the government’s decision to freeze the carbon tax and to push for the establishment of a bunch of new mines will also likely make it more difﬁcult to reduce GHG emissions. But it’s not hard to ﬁgure out why Clark is going this route.The recent provincial election showed that the economy has become the number 1 issue with British Columbians. Clark campaigned successfully as a champion of growing the economy and creating jobs. Environmental issues such as climate change have been elbowed into the background.While they still rank high in importance, they are not the issues that determine who forms
government in this province. While the NDP tears itself apart on whether or not it can support big industrial activities such as LNG plants, fracking and pipelines, Clark can further make economic issues her own and thus ensure she and her party remain in government. Clark is fond of stressing the need to ﬁnd ways to say “yes” to big projects rather than simply rejecting them out of hand, as the NDP did in the election campaign when it opposed the Kinder Morgan pipeline. So look for Clark to fashion policies that are indeed about saying “yes” to a number of projects. I wouldn’t be surprised if the B.C. Liberals somehow ﬁnd a way to throw their support behind the Kinder Morgan pipeline and perhaps, down the road, revisit their decision to not support Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline. If Kinder Morgan and Enbridge can convincingly show they have addressed concerns about oil spills and clean-up, and that they have the support of more First Nations than not (in other words, not necessarily unanimous support), I suspect Clark will ﬁnd it easier to say “yes” to one or both of the projects. Of course, there are potential pratfalls that may await the Clark government
as it pushes the economy as its bread and butter issue. Chief among them is if those liqueﬁed natural gas plants
but many analysts will be surprised if there’s more
don’t materialize. LNG Minister Rich Coleman says he’s reasonably conﬁdent that three will be built,

West Vancouver’s Argyle Avenue community gardens could be transplanted once the district’s landscaping plan for Millenium Park to the Music Box is completed in the spring of 2014. Andrew Banks, West Vancouver parks manager, said there are plans to shift things around to offer more protection against storms. “What we are planning to do is move the infrastructure, such as the community gardens, further away from the ocean and up to Argyle,” said Banks. “When we consult with the

community, our permit holders, on this particular design, I think we will have a very nice product at the end that all of us will be proud of.” Banks said there are plans in the works for more community gardens and staff will be working towards that over the next few years. But residents at last week’s council meeting voiced their concerns about the fate of the current gardens. Ruth Mabutt, a Bellevue
Avenue resident, said she has had a garden plot for the past eight years and knows there is currently a waiting list. “We have a need for continual use for the gardens as well as a need for more gardens for the people who are waiting,” said Mabutt. “I question that there’s enough space in this design for the community gardens because there’s some large trees that you can’t put gardens underneath.” Coun. Nora Gambioli
was optimistic about process. “I have total conﬁdence in the parks department especially since John Lawson Park has been such a huge success in your ability to consult and make a plan,” said Gambioli. The project also includes the demolition of the house at 1528 Argyle, which is set to come down this fall.

INQUIRING REPORTER Cell towers are a hot topic when it comes to possible side effects on health. Three cell tower applications by Rogers Communications have sent West Vancouverites to city hall in protest. But should the public really be concerned? Vancouver Coastal Health, along with Health Canada and scientiﬁc studies from around the world has reassured the public that any radiation from the towers is not powerful enough to have an impact. Have your say; take the poll at nsnews.com. —Anne Watson
Mark Hong North Vancouver “I’m not worried. I’m from Singapore, we have cellphone towers and it’s never been reported in local newspapers.”
Will Wakelin North Vancouver “I think there’s a lot more important things to worry about than can possibly be coming off of towers.”
David Williams East Vancouver “No, I just think it’s not powerful enough.”
Jared Ewart Squamish “Based on low levels of radiation, I wouldn’t be too worried.”
Maureen Cosgrove North Vancouver “It doesn’t worry me because there are a lot of other things to worry about in life.”
Revenue trumps emission targets

between $4 billion and $9 billion a year to government coffers. Even if there’s only a single plant, the return could still top more than $1 billion a year — if the Asia market for LNG remains strong, which is by no means a sure thing 10 years from now.

■ Ballet BC’s Tilt: Johan Inger’s Walking Mad plus two world premieres from Jorma Elo and Emily Molnar, Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Oct 18 and 19, 8 p.m. ANNE WATSON email@example.com
THE art of dance is a language spoken through the movement of body. For Emily Molnar, artistic director of Ballet BC, it’s a language she has spoken all her life and continues in her latest work, 16 plus a room. “The fact that dancers within 10 minutes of not even speaking the same language can be dancing together and smiling and they are not even
exchanging a language verbally, is an extraordinary thing that most people don’t have an encounter with in their lives,” says Molnar. “It’s very exceptional what happens in dance, our entire instrument — our body, our mind, our soul— is called to action when we perform, when we dance, when we are in the act of dancing and I ﬁnd that one of the most beautiful paths towards self-discovery and self-understanding that one can have.” The piece makes its world premiere in Tilt this weekend at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and includes North Vancouver dancer Scott Fowler. Molnar says the piece is a kind of energetic reality

of feeling displaced, things collapsing, changing and trying to begin, and things disappearing. “I’m very much interested in more philosophical spaces when I create a piece, so it’s very atmospheric,” she says. “It’s like if you put these 16 individuals into a room and the room starts to move, and it tips and it turns. I kept saying it’s like they’re in a glass jar and things keep moving around.” Molnar says it captures a spectacular moment in time, with neither a beginning nor an ending. “It’s this kind of idea that things don’t stop all of a sudden,” says Molnar. “This is happening all the time everywhere, art, so we just have to sit down and
observe that.” The piece is a very textured landscape, she says. “You step into a world and that world is very kinetic and very dynamic,” says Molnar. “But it’s an experience that’s for sure.” Molnar provided several different art forms, including a collection of Emily Dickinson poems, writings by American installation artist Bill Viola and Art Objects by Jeanette Winterson, for the cast of 16 dancers to draw from. “I really work with the dancers,” says Molnar. “I’ll often bring in a lot of images, a lot of text, that we start building our vocabulary, which means our choreography, from. So we build kind of a

dictionary of words, an alphabet per se.” The dancers were also able to draw from Molnar’s own personal experience. “I just turned 40 this year and there’s been a lot of discussion in my own self about aging and transition,” Molnar says. “I had this feeling in me, like a sadness in my bones and I mean that in the most liberating way, not because I felt that I was arthritic or something but just more that time passes and you start to feel that history inside of your body, that notion that you know you really realize you don’t have a lot of time and with that comes a huge liberty and celebration of what it means to be alive.” See Molnar page 42

Manage Stress Naturally Improve Energy, By Karen Jensen, ND
Our ability to adapt to stress depends upon optimal function of the adrenal glands. When excess stress overloads our adrenal glands symptoms can include: fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, low back pain, asthma, allergies, blood sugar problems, hormonal imbalances, irritability, headaches, sugar cravings, gastrointestinal symptoms and inﬂammatory conditions.

The ‘roots’ of the original AdrenaSense Formula
Throughout my life I had good health and boundless energy and then suddenly in my early 30’s I hit the wall with fatigue… I had three children under the age of 3, my marriage broke up, and I went back to work thinking I could ‘do it all’. My body did not agree… nothing helped the crippling fatigue until I saw a naturopathic doctor who introduced me to my adrenal glands. When I started naturopathic practice in the 1980’s it was my own experience with adrenal fatigue that allowed me to recognize it in my patients and over the years I saw the need for an effective adrenal supplement. AdrenaSense® is the original solution I formulated for patients and others who have found it very effective.
The Original AdrenaSense Formula:

Novel inspired by medieval history Author Mary Novik will introduce latest work, Muse, at theVancouverWriters Fest ■ The Vancouver Writers Fest, Oct. 2227 at Granville Island. writersfest.bc.ca. ERIN MCPHEE firstname.lastname@example.org
Coming face to face with the art adorning the walls of Pope ClementVI’s bedroom in Avignon’s Palais des Papes, North Vancouver writer Mary Novik knew she had her story. On one of her ﬁve trips to the southeastern France UNESCO World Heritage Site, referred to as the City of Popes due to their presence in the 14th century, Novik had opted for the “secret palace tour” and was given an opportunity to explore spaces not viewed by the typical tourist. “I was in the pope’s bedroom and there are these
wonderful frescoes on the walls and they’re very secular frescoes, they’re not religious at all,” she says. She began to wonder whether vows of chastity had indeed been kept in those days. “I write ﬁction, but if you’re writing about a historical period you want to be accurate about the important facts so I needed to be sure that this had indeed happened,” she says. Novik started digging and discovered that the pope and his peers at the time had faced harsh criticism from people, like poet Francesco Petrarch, for things like lechery and greed, “And so I had the basis for a plot,” she says. From there, her newly released work of ﬁction Muse, a follow to her 2007 debut Conceit, “sprang to life.” Deciding to make
Petrarch a character in the work, Novik’s further research suggested he himself had had a mistress and that very little was known about her. “Then I began to think, ‘Well what if she had been the poet Petrarch’s muse instead of Laura who is always called his muse?’ — so then I had a character and I had a conﬂict and I had moral dilemmas. Before that, I just had an exotic setting. But this gave me my story,” she says. Muse follows the life of Solange Le Blanc, a daughter of a harlot who dies during childbirth. Solange is raised by Benedictines, educated as a scribe and believed to be a clairvoyant. The book depicts her escape to Avignon where she comes to be at the centre of a love triangle with Petrarch, and later becomes Pope Clement VI’s mistress and conﬁdante. Conceit, which was nominated for the Giller Prize and won the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize, also See Novik page 19
North Vancouver writer Mary Novik has based her new novel, Muse, around the mysterious woman who inspired Petrarch’s poetry in 14th-century Avignon. PHOTO SUPPLIED

Novik lets lead character tell story From page 18
focused on a writer of love poems, John Donne, and his daughter, Pegge, in 17th century England. “I’m absolutely fascinated by these guys,” says Novik, of her passion for literary greats, both their works and personal lives. That said, she doesn’t view Conceit as a traditional historical novel. “I tend to say that my novels are ﬁction that’s set in the past, rather than historical ﬁction, per se,” she says. “With this book, Muse, it is more towards that, it’s more in that direction,” she adds. She found her change of approach to have occurred naturally, the result of writing about one woman in particular. “When you’re writing about one woman that would just right away make it more accessible and easier for the reader right there. And since she’s speaking in her own voice, you’re not intrusive as an author, it’s just her telling her story, so it comes across as a more traditional historical novel. The next book that I write will probably be different from both those books.
There is a relationship between my books but they’re not sequels,” she says. Novik is glad Muse is ﬁnally out, giving her an opportunity to engage with readers. “I like talking about my
work,” she says. “Especially afterwards, people will come up and ask a couple of questions, or they’ll be interested in a particular thing, or want to know how much research you did and that’s really fun to just chat about.”
Novik will offer insight into her new work and craft at the upcoming Vancouver Writers Fest, being held Oct. 22-27 at various venues on Granville Island. She’s been featured at the annual festival before, following the release of
Conceit, and has long attended, including with the members (June Hutton and Jen Sookfong Lee) of her writing group SPiN. “It’s a big week for us,” says Novik. They welcome the opportunity to catch up with
local writer friends as well as meet and be exposed to international novelists. “It’s just wonderful to be able to see all those writers, see what they’re doing, because the thing is they’re See Novik page 38

Persian vocalist builds on classical tradition Tahere Falahati releases new recording CHRISTINE LYON email@example.com
A throaty female singing voice cracks and quavers as it resonates from the built-in laptop speakers. “This is tahrir,” says Tahere Falahati as she reaches out to pause the iTunes track.The distinct vocal trill, heard often in traditional Persian songs, she explains, is produced by vibrating the larynx. “It is a vocal ornamentation, like Swiss yodelling.” Falahati skips ahead in the song. Now the voice is smooth and clear.The singer holds an impossibly long note which starts soft and builds in volume. “This is the dynamics of the voice.You make, like, a crescendo from a lower tone to a higher tone.” Falahati continues to describe the complexities and subtleties of Persian classical music.The genre, she explains, relies on a ﬁxed repertoire of short melodic movements, called gushe, and often draws its lyrics from renowned medieval poets such Rumi, Hafez or Sa’adi. “There’s an organic relationship between poetry and music and this is the vocalist’s responsibility to recite those poems,” says Falahati. The North Vancouver singer has studied the traditional music of her home country for many years and released her ﬁrst album in August. A Moment WithYou was composed and conducted by kamancheh player Saeed Farajpoory and features an ensemble of Lower Mainland instrumentalists including Ali Razmi (setar), Ali Sajadi (barbat), Saina Khaledi (santour) and Hamin Honari (tombak, daf). Classical Persian musicians rely on improvisation and composition when pairing melodic sequences with

poetic lyrics, Falahati says. “And then you bring them out, with your fashion, with your style and put your character in it.” On A MomentWithYou, all nine tracks are sung in Farsi. But Falahati insists listeners needn’t understand the language to appreciate the music. “You don’t need to know the lyrics because it’s the ability of the vocalist to bring up his or her emotion in their voice,” she says. “When I listen to nonFarsi music, sometimes I don’t know the lyrics, but
I use my imagination and I can make a connection between myself and the vocalist.” Falahati moved to Canada from Tehran, Iran in 2001 seeking greater artistic opportunities. Dance and certain types of music have been banned in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution and there are restrictions on female singers. “Female vocalists are not permitted to have any activities in my home country.We can sing in a choir and accompanying
other male singers in groups, but the lone female voice is too provocative for men,” Falahati says, adding, “I think that the female voice in my home country needs to be hidden, just like their head, from men because it’s too much of a turn on.” At the time of the revolution, Falahati was just ﬁve years old. She discovered her voice at an early age, but there was never any opportunity for her to perform — at least, See Group page 26

Kronos returns to UBC
JOHN GOODMAN firstname.lastname@example.org
UBC’s Chan Centre helps celebrate the 40th anniversary of Kronos Quartet Saturday night with the world premiere of a new work by composer Philip Glass. Joyce Hinton, one of the Chan Centre’s two co-managing directors, talked to the North Shore News about Kronos and the arts centre’s upcoming season. North Shore News: Built on the UBC grounds Chan
Centre is both a private university institution and a public performance space. How does everything play out?
Joyce Hinton: I always think of it as having three major roles: ﬁrstly, we have two resident companies (the UBC School of Music and the UBC Department of Theatre and Film) and those departments have classes, rehearsals, performances or screenings in case of ﬁlms, in our venues. We also try to engage with the community and one of the ways we do that is to rent our space to organizations such as the Vancouver Symphony,

Quartet started coming to the Chan Centre a number of years ago. David Harrington of Kronos absolutely adores the concert hall — he thinks it’s one of the best halls he’s ever performed in anywhere in the entire world — which is pretty high praise considering where Kronos Quartet has played. They’ve broken tradition and changed how people view string quartets with their emphasis on commissioning different composers and working with all sorts of different artists. They love Vancouver audiences — they ﬁnd them very adventurous and interested in what they are doing. It’s been a really great match with all the interesting programming they’ve been doing. We worked with them to bring in Tanya Tagaq — the Inuit throat singer. Our last event with them was with Homayun Sakhi who is an artist supported by the Ismaili Council and the Aga Khan Foundation, so we had a wonderful experience with the Ismaili Council of B.C. and doing all kinds of extra events with them in support of this concert. Kronos brings really interesting opportunities for us. For this concert I was approached by their manager to see if the Chan Centre would like to host the world premiere of a Philip Glass piece that was being written for the quartet in honour of their 40th anniversary. We were really fortunate that Philip Glass is able to come and do a pre-concert talk for us. We’re thrilled to be hosting the world premiere. When it was brought to me, I spoke with our Dean of Arts and said this is just such a wonderful opportunity and I’m very happy he agreed, so we partnered a commission by the Chan Centre through the Faculty of Arts. The Glass talk with Eleanor Wachtel will be recorded for CBC’s Wachtel on the Arts. Glass is more and more interested in composing rather than touring. This is a really special occasion.

instrumental in introducing the music of other cultures in their performances. Joyce Hinton: He’s just got, if you’ll pardon the expression, wonderful ears. He is so inquisitive and he’s someone I really respect in terms of what he’s doing with the quartet. He picks very interesting artists and then through their association with Kronos Quartet it helps them as well and an example again just going back to Tanya Tagaq — they put together this wonderful program that we were fortunate to host during the Cultural Olympiad and I know that Tanya’s ﬁrst gig, her ﬁrst conert in the U.S. was actually at Carnegie Hall. How many artists experience that? And that was really because of her association with Kronos. I know they must be doing this for artists all over the world. I know they do this with commissions as well. They work the major composers such as Philip Glass but they’ve also been very instrumental in commissioning younger composers as well and I know on this program at the Chan Centre they will
be featuring a couple of Canadian composers and in particular a Canadian premiere by Nicole Lizée who is based out of Montreal. This is such a wonderful aspect of Kronos and I think it has inspired other quartets.
North Shore News: Kronos also has an improvisational aspect to some of their music— they are not afraid to play outside the lines. Joyce Hinton: There’s a wonderful clip of them working with Homayun Sakhi and his trio (Creating “Rangin Kaman” — youtube.com/ watch?v=MBofuvvUxM0). He doesn’t read Western notation and he learns pieces by ear and whatnot and Kronos are trained in a certain way and it was so interesting seeing how they created something from different styles.
your eyes off her. She just has that amazing stage presence, very dramatic and theatrical — she just commands the entire stage. The last time she was at the Chan Centre it was another sold out house and she asked her audience where they were from and people were from all over the world.
She just draws such an international audience and of course there’s a very loyal Portuguese audience that comes out as well. She truly is a very international artist. Rokia Traoré rarely tours North America so it’s quite a treat to have her. She’s put out an album, Beautiful Africa, and it’s
got really great reviews. I love the fact she combines Western music with her West African music. That’s going to be another amazing concert.
North Shore News: In the new year you have something for everyone — big band jazz (the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

Elvis Costello blends in with The Roots
■ Elvis Costello and The Roots — Wise Up Ghost and Other Songs (Blue Note Records). From punk to country to jazz to wherever he wants to go, Elvis Costello has had a career that deﬁes classiﬁcation. He has worked with an eclectic cast of musicians and managed to blend his sound with theirs to create something unique. This chameleon quality is well served in his latest collaboration with The Roots. This is not Elvis does hip hop but much deeper as he brings out the funk and the beats that hip hop grew out of then draws them into a new direction for himself. Wise Up Ghost is 12 songs of funk-infused brilliance, (the deluxe version has three extra bonus tracks that were recorded after the initial sessions). There is a surprise that comes from this unlikely pairing that
Elvis Costello and the Roots release collaboration; Yamantaka // Sonic Titan’s sophomore effort, UZU, out Oct. 29. makes each song just that much more special. When the opening organ of the ﬁrst track, “Walk Us Uptown,” is met with Costello’s snarl you know this is going to be something different. Both the band and Costello keep themselves reined in but beneath the music pulses with a raw energy. With repeated listening the beat gets funkier and the vocals get more soulful and the whole album gets better. — Terry Peters

fortunate enough to see Danse Lhasa Danse at Luminato. I was a big fan of Lhasa and like so many Canadians felt the tragedy of her dying at such a young age of breast cancer. Pierre-Paul, the choreographer of PierrePaul Savoie Danse company, went to Lhasa’s family and got permission to put together this piece. It’s a really interesting tribute to her featuring her band with wellknown Quebec singers and his dance company. He asked seven Montréal choreographers to create pieces based on Lhasa’s music for his dance company. There is a whole visual component which comes in and out and the only spoken words are from Lhasa. When you hear her last album (Lhasa released on Warner in 2009) even though she wrote the album before she was
diagnosed with breast cancer there are some songs that (hint at what’s to come). So many of the songs are representative of a young woman, there’s love songs but there’s also this wonderfully touching aspect about mortality. At one point she talks about her father’s interpretation of death and knowing that she passed away makes it all that much more poignant. For those of us who knew Lhasa we were so touched by it but there were many people who wouldn’t have had that same association with Lhasa and they loved it too. Her music was so engaging and for a lot of the younger crowd they were introduced to a wonderful songwriter and her music. — Kronos Quartet performs in the Chan Shun Concert Hall Saturday, Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. For more information on the 2013/14 Chan Centre Presents concert series visit chancentre.com/our-season.

not the way she wanted to perform, as a soloist. “In a choir, you can’t hear their voices, how fantastic they are or what they can do with their voices,” she says. “Give me some credit, you know. I don’t want to do that.” Still, she continued to study voice privately under the tutorship of well-known Iranian singer Parissa. At her father’s urging, she also got a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and worked in the sciences for a short time. “I didn’t like it,” she admits. “I wanted to be a musician.” In addition to recording A MomentWithYou, Falahati and her ensemble have taken the groundbreaking step of releasing two music videos, available on YouTube. Falahati believes these to be the ﬁrst ever
music videos created to accompany traditional Persian songs.While there is plenty of footage of classical musicians performing live, Falahati says this is the ﬁrst time to her knowledge that a traditional Persian ensemble has hired a videographer to ﬁlm and edit a professional video. Since she enjoys watching the music videos of her own favourite artists, she ﬁgured those who listen to A MomentWithYou might appreciate a visual companion. “You can make a better connection between you and the listener,” she says. Looking ahead, Falahati is eager to set up more local performances.There are plenty of talented Iranian musicians in the Vancouver area, she says, and with a bit more promotion and support she hopes to grow a wider local fan base for traditional Persian music.

Forty years of luxury lingerie Ambleside pop-up shop celebrates anniversary
CHRISTINE LYON firstname.lastname@example.org
FASHION FILE Our weekly roundup of fashion and beauty events and activities. page 36
When Christine Morton ﬁrst launched her fashion design company 40 years ago, she didn’t have high hopes for its longevity. “I thought that it would last a week,” admits the Dundarave resident. “I did not have the sense that this would be a successful business. I just enjoyed what I did and loved to create.” Morton started out designing custom lingerie and bridal gowns and eventually developed a limited-edition collection and the ﬁrst line of silk lingerie designed and manufactured in Canada. Today, Christine Lingerie is recognized internationally for its luxury sleepwear, loungewear and intimate apparel. Looking back on her career, Morton says she is surprised at how much her designs have evolved. “It used to be all antique lace and roses and more frou-frou,” she says, explaining her current work is cleaner, more modern and elegant. Styles come and go, but what hasn’t changed in the last four decades is Morton’s preference for high-end materials. “We’ve always worked in luxury fabrics and beautiful laces and that’s the trademark and that
Made from printed Italian silk, the Dream Catcher chemise and matching short robe are part of Christine Lingerie’s fall 2013 collection. Designed by Dundarave resident Christine Morton, the high-end lingerie and loungewear will be on sale at a pop-up shop in West Vancouver from Nov. 1 until the end of December. Scan with Layar to see more photos of Morton’s designs. PHOTO SUPPLIED continues for sure.” Formerly based in West Vancouver, Christine Lingerie moved its studio and showroom to Gastown a few years ago. But North Shore fans of Morton’s designs will be able to browse and buy her sumptuous garments in Ambleside from Nov. 1 until the end of December at a Christine Lingerie pop-up store, to be located at 1445 Bellevue Ave. “We have a beautiful collection this season and we have extra cuts that we’ve made for the store,” Morton says, noting the
pop-up shop will also host a 40th anniversary celebration on Nov. 30. “I’m more and more working in prints and I’ve got some beautiful Italian prints that we’re doing this season,” she explains. The Dream Catcher collection, for example, includes robes, caftans, gowns and chemises made from a ﬁne silk printed with black feathers and dark cherry accents. The Ambleside pop-up will also carry Christine Lingerie’s holiday Luxe Collection, which Morton says has a Great Gatsby feel, along
with a small collection of vintage-style jewelry that pairs well with loungewear. Always-popular pyjama sets in a variety of colours will also be available. “Pyjamas are one of the key trends this season, which is fun. A lot of people are wearing them as outerwear,” Morton says. Meanwhile, bargain hunters will be able to snatch up a selection of older merchandise at discounted prices. Christine Lingerie is popping up in West Vancouver during the busiest shopping season
of the year, and also at a time when the company is feeling the sting from the City of Vancouver’s year-long closure of Powell Street. “We’re right in the middle of construction, practically, it’s right at the edge of our block, so we’re not getting a lot of trafﬁc here.” Fortunately for Morton, her bottom line doesn’t rely on showroom walkins. Christine Lingerie has found its way into numerous upscale See Celebs page 36

Molnar wears many hats at Ballet BC From page 13 German composer, Dirk Haubrich wrote the music for the piece and is someone that Molnar has worked with before. “He is a lovely man that I met when I was dancing in Frankfurt Ballet working with William Forsythe,” says Molnar. “Many years later, I stumbled on the fact that he had become an incredibly well known composer for dance in Europe. So I picked up the phone and said, ‘Hey Dirk would you be interested in working with me on this next piece,’ so I was so excited when he said yes. I knew I wanted to do that and when I secured that I started there.” Molnar’s love of ballet started from a young age when she was living in Regina, Sask. “I was dancing around the house a lot, my grandmother said to my mom, ‘You really should put her in some dance classes.’ So I started creative movement when I was ﬁve, took my ﬁrst ballet class when I was six and then I was leaving home when I was 10 to go to the National Ballet School,” she says. From there, Molnar’s career in ballet took ﬂight. She was invited to join the National Ballet of Canada before she turned 17. “I got into the National Ballet of Canada because Bill (Forsythe) was doing a new piece and he saw me as an apprentice on the side and said I want her and so
I got into the company and that was my ﬁrst piece I got to perform with him which was great,” says Molnar. “I was the only apprentice and most of the other dancers were all soloists and principal dancers so it was quite a coup that I got into the company and I got into this piece.” But her time at the National would last less than four years. “Three and a half years later he came back and he said, ‘Would you like to join me in Frankfurt,’ and I said, ‘Well of course.’ I mean it’s an invitation that was just, it changed my life and it has deﬁned my perspective on dance enormously,” she says. “It was an extraordinary period of time, Frankfurt Ballet, working under Bill and he’s a great mind and he’s still very much creating some of the most important work in dance right now today.” Molnar joined Ballet BC in 1998 and went on to become the artistic director in 2009. She has choreographed four pieces for the company, including her latest, and says choreography has intrigued her since one of her ﬁrst performances when she was 12. “It was a natural evolution for my learning curve. I was working with a man who was at that time the director of the Dutch National Ballet, Rudi van Dantzig, and he created a new work for us,” says Molnar. “At that moment, that ability to converse and
Working with the same set of dancers over several years has allowed Emily Molnar to take more chances with her choreography. PHOTO SUPPLIED MICHAEL SLOBODIAN create the work myself, it gave me such a sense of responsibility and ownership and individuality and I knew in that moment that the creative process and building work and working with choreographers, was my passion.” She says it became a natural step she wanted to try on her own after having worked with many different people and creating a
variety of works. “It’s something I love to do but I have to be honest, I also love being a part of other people’s processes as much, so that’s where I knew being a director was something that was my calling because it wasn’t just about my work it was really about the potential of dance and the creative process and I participate in that as a director and
as a choreographer,” says Molnar. Being the artistic director can also be one of the most challenging aspects of the choreography process. “That always has made it a little more challenging for me to go into the studio, to ﬁnd research time on my own, when I’m also working on other people’s work, having a load administratively that’s quite dense,” she says. “I wear many, many hats here, I work quite a few hours a week. So to be able to carve out that time where it’s just about me and my piece as I would have before I became the artistic director, that doesn’t happen as easily and so that’s my challenge to ﬁnd that balance.” But Molnar says having worked with the same group of dancers the past four years has become an intimate process. “I’ve been able to go through four processes and I’ve never had the joy of that kind of experience in any of my other choreographic opportunities. I mean I’ve had lovely dancers to work with but they haven’t been the same group four times in a row,” Molnar says. “This has allowed me to take more risk, to challenge my ideas, to trust them because I’m working with ﬁrst of all an incredible group of artists who want to go there, but also because they trust me, I trust them, I’ve been able to go to different places I haven’t

been able to research in some of my other pieces, so I feel very excited about that.” Choreographers working on 20 to 25 minute pieces are given about a threeweek rehearsal period, which is then followed by the company rehearsing for two more weeks and the choreographer back for another week. In all, Molnar says the whole process takes about six weeks. “I’d say on average, it’s a very conservative statement, that every minute of choreography takes on average about six hours,” she says. Whether it’s a choreographer that she wants to work with or something the audience would really love, Molnar always tries to have ideas brewing for upcoming shows. Ballet BC’s next venture partners ballet with a Canadian music icon. “We have Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, which is a wonderful piece by Alberta Ballet in collaboration with Sarah McLachlan,” Molnar says. “We are very excited that we are able to bring this to Vancouverites because Sarah is obviously such a proud artist in this province and in this country.” Fumbling Towards Ecstasy runs from Nov. 14-16. Ballet BC will also be doing holiday classic The Nutcracker, from Dec. 28-31 and Grace Symmetry starts off their new year from Feb. 20-22, 2014.

NFL star rides in style in $2 Mazda The full-size Toyota Avalon has always been popular with an older crowd, but the redesigned 2014 model features new styling that could entice more youngsters. It is available at Jim Pattison Toyota in the Northshore Auto Mall. PHOTO LISA KING
A biweekly roundup of automotive news, good, bad and just plain weird:
2014 Toyota Avalon
Mazda renovates NFL player’s ride Oh those professional athletes — so overpaid, so prone to ﬂashy spending sprees, so obsessed with wealth. Take Alfred Morris for example, recently signed by the Washington Redskins. Would you believe he was driving around in a Bentley in college? Well, he called it “Bentley” anyway. In fact, Morris’s ride was something way less conspicuous than a highend, hand-built luxury car. It was a 1991 Mazda 626 sedan (the old boxy kind), which he reportedly paid $2 for. As you might expect for a two-dollar car, it wasn’t exactly in the best shape.
Toyota’s big changes
The roadways used to be dominated by full-size sedans. That was because back in 1960s, ’70s, and even ’80s, people appreciated the roominess and the feel of large, powerful engines these cars offered. However, these cars also had poor fuel economy, and due to raising gas prices, sales of full-size sedans dropped dramatically and eventually the traditional rear-wheel drive full size sedans simply vanished. Now we are blessed to have a new generation of full size cars that offer almost as much interior space without
to THE ROAD
Behind the Wheel sacriﬁcing fuel efﬁciency or reliability.The technology has greatly improved the gas consumption of today’s full-size cars and Toyota has become a leader in this area.
However, many people have forgotten that Toyota even offers a true full-size sedan — in the form of the Avalon.This is not uncommon for a lot of automakers. A ﬂagship is tasked more with being the face of the brand than it is with selling in large volumes. Buyers of the Avalon tended to be loyal, long-time customers of the brand.The average age of an Avalon driver was one of the oldest in the market. Toyota has given the Avalon a major refresh, and it’s one they should be proud of. It should even draw the attention of people
that may not normally consider a Toyota sedan — yes the Avalon is so good inside and out that it may draw buyers from the likes of Audi and BMW showrooms.
Design The Avalon used to be a stretched Camry, marketed towards the retirement community.Toyota has decided to take a step in a different direction with the new Avalon.The styling and driving feel tell you this car is no longer aimed at the same demographic. See New page 55

So, kick it to the curb once the signing bonus hit? Drop that 14-inch steelie-clad hooptie for some blinged-out Range Rover? Actually, no. In a heart warming tale of a man having unreasonable attachment to an inanimate object, Morris refused to part with the old machine. Mazda got wind of this devotion, and has just recently restored the car to near-concours spec. Not-to-spec, the quilted seats and on-board audio, but the 2.2-litre four-cylinder engine now beats with new vigour, and Bentley’s paint shines again as if factory fresh. Two hundred and seventyﬁve man-hours went into the restoration; yes, it’s a good PR stunt, but it’s still a great story. Robert Kubica closes on World Rally victory Polish Formula One driver Robert Kubica still has a following among the F1 faithful: you can still see red and white ﬂags bearing his name waving proudly at the races. But he’s not there.
He’s gone rallying. After suffering a horriﬁc crash in 2011 that saw his WRC car speared by a piece of loose guardrail, Kubica’s arm was very badly injured, meaning a promising start in F1 was cut short. For most people, this might be the end of racing, and time to take up something a little safer. Like juggling ﬂaming chainsaws. Not so for Mr. Kubica, who has been claiming victory after victory in the WRC2 championship. Running the same treacherous, gravelly and tree-lined tracks that the full strength rally racers run, WRC2 has slightly less powerful cars, but pretty much all the same risks and challenges. Born to race, Kubica has been handling his machine, a Citroën DS3, so well that’s he’s leading the standings with just a few races to go. With the challenging Wales Rally now in the program, beckoning with its murky forest roads, Kubica has yet a new challenge to step up to.
world’s fastest EV Based on a LeMans prototype chassis, the Drayson Racing electric car can now ofﬁcially claim the laurels as the fastest electric car in the world. Stymied during speed record attempts at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, the team turned to a shortish landing strip — just three kilometres long – in the U.K. First crack, they managed a speed of 333 kilometres per hour over

Time to douse over-heated talk of Tesla fire
From page 53
something of a challenge. Aside from its electric powertrain, the Drayson car also uses a unique wireless recharging system, and is a continuing
development testbed for the company. Unofﬁcial GPS results showed an even faster maximum speed of 352 km/h, so there’s more work to be done.
Chevy Camaro laps Nürburgring in 7:37 Musclecars: big, dumb, loud, fast in a straight line, don’t stop, don’t turn. So goes the stereotype,
but here’s a piece of news from the world’s favourite German proving grounds. The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, a track-special resurrection of that iconic badge, just lapped the treacherous corners of the Nürburgring faster than a Porsche 911 Carrera S. Before you get too embarrassed for Porsche, let’s just tick off the other big ticket machinery that
this mulletized special just put the boots too. There’s the Lexus LFA, the Lamborghini Murcielago, the mighty Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and the SLS AMG. Powered by a 7.0litre small-block Chevy (basically a Corvette motor), the Z/28 has plenty of stick to hit high speed on the straights, but its

performance is also down to GM’s aerodynamic improvements, weight savings (nearly 140 kg were removed versus the supercharged ZL1 variant), and massive brakes.
Tesla Model S catches ﬁre. Everybody calm down. This year in North America, something like 200,000 internal combustion engine powered cars will catch ﬁre.Yes, most of them will be Italian, but everything from the humble Corolla to the Ford F150 might suffer a ﬁery fate if road debris severs a fuel line or an accident compromises the fuel tank. Last week, a Tesla Model S caught ﬁre outside of Seattle and, to paraphrase Heath Ledger’s Joker, everybody lost their minds. Tesla stock took a hit, the story was posted all over social media, frowny faced news anchors looked suitably concerned (I’m Ron Burgundy?), and everyone clucked their
tongues disapprovingly. Neat idea, the electric cars. Too bad about the growing pains. Not hardly, here are some facts. There was no fault — the car hit a large piece of “metal debris.” The car informed the unnamed driver of the problem and told him to pull over. The ﬁre never entered the passenger cabin. No one was injured. Basically, the Tesla performed well after a potentially disastrous collision, and the only real issue highlighted was that the ﬁre department was not necessarily well equipped to deal with putting out an electrical car ﬁre. Hint: maybe don’t use so much water. However, the ﬁre was eventually extinguished — hopefully the furor over this one-off dies down soon too.

New tech, better fuel economy in redesign From page 50 It features smart phone connectivity and has classleading fuel economy to attract younger buyers. The large lower grille catches your eye ﬁrst. Right away there’s no questioning that this is a different Avalon.With a far more aggressive appeal than any previous Avalon, it shows off long sloping rooﬂine and extended C-pillars — almost a sleek, coupe-like look. To show its high tech side, the four beam headlights feature “the world’s ﬁrst Double-eye Projector Ellipsoid System that combines high and low beams into a single unit.” LED daytime running lights are also available. The backend also gets a sportier look with dual exhausts and LED taillights set high and wide.This sedan looks about as radical as it can without upsetting all of its current owners. The same expressive feeling extends in to the cabin.The interior features a combination of handstitched leather, chrome and wood accents, and a subdued, matte black dash.The designers mixed the contemporary look
of modern high tech devices with traditional craftsmanship. What should also be noted is the price.The base model, known as the XLE, is very well equipped and starts at $36,800. Something the older and younger clientele will both appreciate. Performance The dramatic changes didn’t end with just the Avalon’s appearance.The new car drives much more like a modern European sedan than a traditional Japanese one.The Avalons of the past were never considered driver cars, but this one can be. The standard V-6 boasts 268 horsepower and 248 foot-pounds of torque, which is enough to spin the front tires if you don’t restrain your right foot.This is not an all-new engine, but it is tried and tested and has shown to be extremely reliable. As mentioned earlier, the Avalon’s fuel economy is very good with a combined 8.3 litres/100 kilometres. Steering wheel paddle shifters are standard and are surprisingly good in managing shifts up and
down.The six-speed transmission receives a taller ﬁnal gear and new ECU programming with normal, eco and sport driving modes. Switch to “sport” mode and the steering feels a little heavier and athletic — it is quite ﬁrm and planted overall. Like most Toyotas, steering still feels a bit numb and artiﬁcial, but overall it has great handling character. The most surprising change in the new Avalon is the ride. It’s very smooth and quiet, but the
The Avalon’s interior features a combination of hand-stitched leather, chrome and wood accents to go along with its modern high tech devices. PHOTOS LISA KING

suspension is also tuned very ﬁrmly.Therefore, the Avalon corners sharply for a large sedan. However, because the suspension is quite ﬁrm, the ride can be a bit harsh at times. It’s a question whether loyal customers will approve of the sprightliness of the new Avalon. Maybe the ﬁrm suspension setting could have been made available as part of an optional sport package.
