Foot passenger foul-up has ferry regulars fuming We Day crowds fill sailing; B.C. Ferries fails to post advisory

JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

Passengers trying to get home to Vancouver Island Friday evening were left less than inspired after almost 600 “We Day” students crowded on to the Nanaimo ferry, leaving commuters cooling their heels in Horseshoe Bay. Julie Salisbury, who lives in Cowichan Bay and regularly commutes to the Lower Mainland for business, said she

and about 100 other foot passengers were told they couldn’t get on to the 5 p.m. sailing to Departure Bay because a group reservation for students had already pushed the ferry to its passenger limit of slightly more than 1,400. We Day, an event aimed at fostering global citizenship in youth, saw thousands of students travelling to attend an Oct. 18 rally at Rogers Arena. A number of school groups made ferry reservations for large groups of students to travel on certain sailings. But Salisbury said nobody warned regular foot passengers they might get bumped — or planned to accommodate the extra traffic.

Salisbury said she arrived at the Horseshoe Bay terminal at around 4:30 p.m. and was told the ferry was full due to the large group reservation. Salisbury said there was no prior warning on the B.C. Ferries website or elsewhere that huge numbers of foot passengers had already reserved about half the available space on the often-busy Friday afternoon sailing. “It’s rare to have a sailing wait for foot passengers,” she said. Salisbury said ferry staff then told the gathered crowd there was room for about 40 more passengers on board. But after about 10 people bought tickets, See Refits page 3

Police release video of suspect van in sex assault Vancouver Police Department investigators are hoping surveillance video may help lead to an arrest in the high-profile sexual assault of a North Vancouver woman. VPD has posted a video briefly depicting a darkcoloured van police suspect was involved in an attack on the 25-year-old victim who was attempting to hail a cab around 2 a.m. in Gastown

on Oct. 12.When the driver of a van pulled over for her, she got in and was abducted to East Vancouver where she was sexually assaulted. The victim managed to escape and sought the help of a stranger who called 9-1-1. Police describe the suspect as an Aboriginal man, approximately 35 to 39 years old and five-eleven to six feet tall.

‘Fogtober’ has been unusually dry

8 straight days of fog in October a new record JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

An unusual weather system blanketed much of the North Shore in a cool, eerie fog for a record number of days this week. The dense fog bank that’s recently given a horrormovie cast to some familiar landmarks had been hanging around the south coast for eight days by Thursday — breaking the previous record for fog in October. “This fog bank has just been really stubborn and persistent,” said Matt MacDonald, a meteorologist at Environment Canada. MacDonald said it’s possible the fog could hang around until the weekend. The thick fog has been caused by a ridge of high pressure — which usually brings warm sunny weather — essentially trapping stagnant layers of moisturesaturated air in low lying areas for the past week. Two types of fog — sea fog, which forms over the water and radiation fog,

PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD created over land — have combined to bring us what some people in the Lower Mainland have dubbed Fogtober. Fog has been thickest over the water and just before sunrise.

While all B.C. Ferries ships are equipped with radar, the fog created a few delays on routes out of Horseshoe Bay this week as vessels have slowed down to ensure safety around other marine traffic, said Deborah

Marshall, spokeswoman for B.C. Ferries. “Safety is our first priority,” she said. One sailing to Bowen Island was cancelled this week after the vessel ended up an hour behind schedule. Not everyone has been

swimming in pea soup, however. The weather pattern in the past week has created what meteorologists call an inversion — meaning the temperatures have actually been much warmer and

skies have been brighter in the North Shore mountains than they have been at sea level — the opposite of what usually happens. “Up in the North Shore mountains it’s 20 degrees,” said MacDonald. “That’s really been the place to be over the past week.” Highs at Point Atkinson in West Vancouver hovered around nine degrees this week, while Grouse and Cypress both reached temperatures of more than 20, said MacDonald. That’s resulted in record numbers of people taking advantage of balmy weather up top, said Jacqueline Blackwell, spokeswoman for Grouse Mountain Resorts. “This is our best October in our history,” she said — with the number of visitors up 30 per cent over last October. “The Grind has been very popular.” This October has also been one of the driest on record, said MacDonald. So far only 20 millimetres of rain have fallen this month, with the last rainfall Oct. 7. Normal rainfall for October is 113 mm in the Lower Mainland. If weather continues to be dry through to Halloween, it will be the second driest October on record, said MacDonald.

staff changed their minds and decided the ferry had to leave because it was already running almost an hour behind schedule, said Salisbury. Ferries staff then made passengers wait even longer outside — until about 6 p.m. — before they were allowed to buy tickets for the next sailing, said Salisbury — which also left almost an hour late. The whole experience left Salisbury and other foot passengers who were left behind steamed. Since it knew about the reservation a month in advance, Salisbury questions why the ferry corporation couldn’t have put on a larger vessel that could take more passengers or at least have warned passengers about the large reservation. She said she wrote a

letter of complaint to the corporation, but hasn’t got any response back yet. Deborah Marshall, spokeswoman for B.C. Ferries, confirmed the Nanaimo ferry did have a reservation for almost 600 school students on We Day. Normally, the corporation would post a warning to passengers to arrive early and expect possible delays, she said. But in this case that didn’t happen. “This is a learning curve for us,” said Marshall, adding We Day has usually been scheduled for mid-week in the past. Marshall said B.C. Ferries staff estimated about 60 foot passengers were left behind as a result of the reservation. A number of vessels are in refit at this time of year, which is one of the reasons an extra sailing wasn’t scheduled, according to Marshall.

skunks not seen locally for 30 years

BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

A rare spotted skunk, thought to be extinct locally, has turned up in West Vancouver — with his paw caught in a rat trap. A Ross Crescent resident found the critter dragging the trap through her property last week and called for help. “It’s really exciting to see something we didn’t know was around — a little upsetting these are the circumstances,” saidYolanda Brooks, spokeswoman for the Wildlife Rescue Association, which is now caring for the animal. While they are more

WRA look after a spotted skunk. Scan with the Layar app to see more photos. PHOTO SUPPLIED common in the Interior, spotted skunks haven’t been seen in the Lower Mainland since the 1980s, Brooks said. Unlike the more common striped skunk, spotted skunks are smaller and do a handstand before spraying their noxious scent. Asked if spotted ones smell every bit is bad as their striped cousins, Brooks said

they smell even worse. “He does pack a powerful stench when he goes off, but we pretty much got used to him now and we know how to handle him and we haven’t had too many spraying incidents,” she said. WRA staff will treat the nameless skunk’s wounded paw until he’s ready to be released in another month

or so. After that, he stands a very good chance of thriving and possibly even mating, Brooks said. “Now that we know that there’s one, there has to be more.That’s quite exciting,” she said. “Maybe next spring he’ll find a mate and the spotted skunk population will increase. . . .When wildlife returns, something must be going right.” Brooks said the trap that snagged the skunk was likely left out to catch a rat, but the same traps are known for catching other mammals including neighbourhood cats and even owls. “You can catch a lot more than you bargained for and it doesn’t kill them outright, it just leaves them to suffer from starvation or exposure,” she said. Residents hoping to catch rats would be better off calling a humane pest control company, Brooks added.

Blue Bus and union agree to 4-year pact Blue Bus riders can breathe now that the District ofWestVancouver and the Amalgamated Transit Union local 134 have shaken hands on a four-year labour deal. The union’s roughly 100 Blue Bus employees voted 79 per cent in favour of accepting the district’s offer last week and district council put their stamp of approval on the agreement Monday. The union had previously voted to strike. Under the new

agreement, employees will get a zero per cent pay increase for 2012, two per cent in 2013 and 2014, and a raise in 2014 that matches whatever Coast Mountain Bus Company employees negotiate with their employer. Beyond that, the two sides negotiated minor improvements to employee health coverage and an increase in their deductible, the removal of pharmaceutical plan dispensing fees from the

district’s costs and a four-day work week for mechanics. “To the union’s credit, they were taking a noconcessions approach to negotiations and they moved away from that, and we were able to engage in meaningful negotiations with a little bit of give and take on both sides,” said TJ Schmaltz, the district’s negotiator. “There are some costs to the district out of this but we consider them to be reasonable costs of doing business.” — Brent Richter

LGH alters ER access Patients heading to the emergency department at Lions Gate Hospital shouldn’t be alarmed if they hear the sounds of saws and staple guns. Power tools aren’t being used on the patients. But there will be some construction noise as the ER undergoes minor renovations over the next three months. The project will add additional triage desks and improve patient privacy and security, said Viola Kaminski,

a spokeswoman with Vancouver Coastal Health. The number of ER beds won’t change. While the construction is underway, patients and visitors who don’t need the ER are asked to use the main hospital entrances on 13th, 14th or 15th streets between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Those arriving between 8 p.m. and midnight can still access the hospital through the ER entrance. — Jane Seyd

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.

Pressing pause F ile this under ‘things you thought you knew but didn’t.’ A report released this week on the potential for Internet voting has concluded allowing online ballots likely won’t result in more people voting, or more young people voting, or cheaper elections. What it could do, the expert panel concludes, is make it easier for hackers to find out who you voted for, harder for anyone to audit results afterwards and make it much more susceptible to largescale fraud. Score one for old-fashioned pen and paper. The report, conducted for B.C.’s chief elections officer, was prompted by concern over falling voter turnout. Typically only 30 to 50 per cent of voters turn out to cast their ballots come election time. Theoretically, online voting has the

potential to change those numbers. But interestingly, in jurisdictions where it’s been tested, that’s not what happened. People who didn’t vote before still didn’t vote — including youth. Those who would have voted anyway just found it more convenient. But in exchange for convenience, there are many risks — including making it fairly easy for hackers to alter election results. If there’s a takeaway from the report, it’s that technology is not a panacea. Voting isn’t hard. But it requires engagement. That’s what politicians must address if they wish for a bigger turnout at the ballot box. But this isn’t the end of the discussion. The public has until Dec. 4 to make its views known.You can find the report and an opportunity to comment — where else — online at internetvotingpanel.ca.

Quit messing with Argyle Avenue With more than a touch of petulance — having lost a camel’s-nosein-the-tent tie vote on experimental parking, pedestrian and bicycle lanes on Argyle just two weeks earlier — MaryAnn Booth and Nora Gambioli failed again Monday to get West Van council on side with the scheme. Fellow Coun. Craig Cameron was absent for the previous vote. Apparently the two councillors thought he’d support the $80,000-plus “temporary” lanes proposal for the 1300-block Argyle. Wrong. Their motion was beaten 5-2. As Constant Reader knows, this corner sees the Spirit Trail as not meant for serious bicycle commuters — praise them — but for the kind of

••• In 23 years at this hot dog stand I can’t recall more, or angrier, public reaction to a proposal than to the art-gallery-plus thingee smack on the John Lawson Park parking lot in the 1600-block Argyle. For good example, here’s bright and gritty and funny New Democrat campaigner (West Vancouver-Capilano) Terry Platt, recovering from a serious operation. “I certainly don’t see the logic behind tearing up a very pretty parking lot to build an arts centre, with a gift shop and a wine bar,” she writes. “I like the trees. I like to be able to drive with my picnic and my folding chairs and all that other stuff one needs when they picnic and park at a reasonable distance. What about the folks with

physical challenges who, while being able to drive, still have difficulty getting around and still like to picnic? “We have enough arts centres, enough gift shops, enough high-end coffee shops. And enough tearing down of West Vancouver to put up something not West Vancouver. One day we will look at what we have and lament that ‘it’s just not what we used to have before.’ Pity.” ••• “I hear they’re holding a party in West Vancouver for David Baines’ retirement,” joked a retired refugee from Howe Street, referring to the disgusting number of scoundrels roosting on our loftier slopes who were exposed by the great Vancouver Sun columnist. My informant recalled

one crook who moaned he had been screwed — by another crook. He chuckled, recalling he’d told Crook No. 1: “Hubert, you screwed me too.” (Name has been changed to protect the guilty.) I’d estimate that Baines flushed out more con artists than all the business writers in Canada put together, exposing the shabby end of capitalism that the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business and the Financial Post — to say nothing of the Wall Street Journal and other vaunted U.S. papers — elaborately ignore. Very honourable exception: The Post’s editor-at-large Diane Francis. As a card-carrying capitalist, I look on Baines with admiration and the above-named publications and countless others with

derision for their usually uncritical boosterism of our flawed economic system, unless crimes reach the depths of a Bernie Madoff and can’t be ignored.You’d think they had every selfinterest in helping keep the stables clean. Baines will be deservedly honoured with the Bruce Hutchison Lifetime Achievement Award at the Jack Webster Awards Dinner next Wednesday at the Westin Bayshore. ••• Last column I referred to a little-known device called a tontine. Briefly, it’s for some asset or prize collected by the last surviving participant in the agreement. Richmond reader Yvonne Pearson writes that in 1984 five See Tontine page 11

Should we train more riveting Rosies? A young female friend of our family approached me the other day and said she has decided to drop out of university and pursue something else. “I’m thinking of becoming a welder.What do you think?” she asked me. I congratulated her on her choice, and told her it was very likely she would have a well-paying career a lot quicker than most of her university-bound friends and that it would last a very long time. I was reminded of that encounter upon hearing the news that the B.C. Construction Association is once again heading to Ireland to find about 600 qualified trades people to fill positions in this province. Not only is this a return trip to Ireland, but it follows a similar expedition to California last year. I’ve written about our looming skills shortage before, but there are few signs the problem is being addressed in any significant way. And time is of the essence.The raw demographical change that is starting to ripple through society at an accelerating pace is having an impact

Keith Baldrey

View from the Ledge that literally grows by the day. For example, as more and more baby boomers ease into retirement (albeit at a later year than in the past), the vacancies in all kinds of trained occupations start to mushroom. The peak of the boomer generation will retire in about 10 years, and that is when we may be in a genuine crisis if action is not taken now. How do these demographic changes play out in the workplace? Well, those who retire are oftentimes the people who are in management or in senior supervisory positions. On construction projects, that translates

into a lot of foremen and project managers leaving, without adequately trained (and experienced) hands to replace them. Adding to the urgency of solving this problem — “crisis” would not be an overstatement — is the fact that a number of major industrial projects are set to come online in the foreseeable future. Pipelines, LNG plants, several new mines, wind farms, plus the regular ongoing construction projects, all will require in total tens of thousands of new, properly trained trades workers. One government estimate concludes that over the next 10 to 15 years, more than 150,000 vacancies in the trades will need to be filled. Premier Christy Clark has engaged with the unionized B.C. Building Trades Council to tap into what she calls their “trap line” of skilled workers in the United States to help fill those jobs. But we need workers from B.C. as well. And this brings us to our education system and whether it is doing enough to close this skills gap. Both Clark and Education Minister Peter

Fassbender have dropped broad hints some big changes may be coming, in both the K-12 and postsecondary sides of the education equation. Perhaps students will be offered more choices, or encouragement, at an earlier age to consider getting a trade as their career. If it becomes clear to young people that the way to a well-paying job is through a trade and not a vaguely defined university degree, perhaps there will be a much bigger take-up of a trades vocation. Any changes in the

post-secondary system regarding making trades more of a priority are trickier and potentially more controversial. Universities and colleges rightly value their academic freedom and independence. However, the days of a provincial government handing over millions of dollars to a post-secondary institution with no strings attached may be drawing to a close. I’ve heard the premier say she doesn’t see the point of universities simply churning out more, to pick just one example, teachers

when there is a surplus of teachers.This may translate into her government increasing funding for trades training programs by taking funding away from other post-secondary programs, which will likely be met with howls of outrage from the academic community. While traditionally academic degrees such as arts degrees remain valuable — the so-called “credentials inflation” means some kind of degree is required even for jobs not needing one a decade ago — we need more See More page 9

Warn fire dept. when testing fire alarms WV amends fire service fees and charges JULES KNOX newsroom@nsnews.com

A certified professional must test all fire protection equipment inWest Vancouver annually, and owners can get charged for a failure to notify the fire department prior to such a test. Council passed the Fire Protection and Emergency Response Bylaw on Monday night stipulating that fire protection equipment must be tested by a technician certified by the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of British Columbia.

Thirteen municipalities across the province have a similar requirement, said fire chief Jim Cook.There are more than 700 ASTTBCcertified fire protection technicians in the province. By charging owners for a failure to notify the fire department about testing, it is hoping the number of false alarms will be reduced, said Cook. “This section clarifies that it’s the owner’s responsibility to notify their alarm company and the fire department while work is being done on the system,” he said. The bylaw also clarified language around charging and recovering fees, which will be added to property taxes if left unpaid past Dec. 31.These charges can include the cost of removing combustible materials that present a fire

hazard, or damages to the fire department’s equipment because of a hazardous substance or dangerous goods. “The only fire equipment we would charge for damages is if there is some use of a restricted substance or illegal activities,” said Cook. “We don’t typically charge anybody for damaged equipment through the course of a normal fire or incident.” Most of the fees and charges contained in the bylaw have been compared across B.C., Cook said. The bylaw also deleted the position of a community forester, whose responsibilities will now fall to the fire chief. Fireworks may only be discharged on Oct. 31 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. under the bylaw.

INQUIRING REPORTER Online voting is fast, cheap, and a boon for the disabled, the busy, and the pyjamaclad. Despite those benefits, an Elections BC-appointed panel recently named voter privacy and election security as reasons not to support such a system. Cynicism is also a concern. Imagine if the last provincial election allowed the online option. Would NDP supporters believe their party’s lead in the polls had died of natural causes, or would accusations of fraud plague the Liberal’s victory? Have your say in our online poll at nsnews.com. — Jeremy Shepherd

Bernie Motut North Vancouver “No. I like the error-free method of pencil and paper.”

Would you vote online?

Bruce Greenwood North Vancouver “Probably, just because it would be easier.”

Maureen Hemsworth North Vancouver “No. For one thing, I don’t trust online voting.”

Philip Marsh North Vancouver “Yes. Convenience and (the) opportunity to get a little more information (at home).”

Geoff Middlehurst Prince George “Yes. You can do it from wherever you have a computer.”

Paddleboarder gets lost at sea in fog

Horseshoe Bay’s Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue tasked to 2 fog rescues JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

West Vancouver’s marine search and rescue unit was called out Monday evening

after a paddleboarder got lost in the fog in English Bay. The paddleboarder was out on the water around 6 p.m. when he became disoriented in the

thick fog. Although he wasn’t very far from shore, the man couldn’t get his bearings, so paddled up close to a freighter at anchor and phoned for assistance. Luckily, a water taxi from Tymac Launch reached the boarder soon after and brought him back to shore. “He absolutely did the

right thing by going to a fixed known place,” said Hugh Kelsey, coxswain on the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue unit based in Horseshoe Bay. He added going paddleboarding in thick fog “may not have been the best choice.” Just a couple of hours later, at 8:30 p.m., the marine search and rescue

crew was alerted by the B.C. Ferries vessel Queen of Capilano about a small boat in Howe Sound that showed up on the radar as possibly disoriented in the fog. The West Vancouver marine unit, which was already in Howe Sound on training exercises, spent about an hour looking for the ship without finding it. Kelsey said the boat

had probably made it in to Snug Cove by the time searchers arrived in the area. Kelsey said both calls emphasize the importance of anyone who’s out on the water pre-planning a route in the fog and using GPS and radar to keep track of where they are. “If you don’t know, stop and figure it out,” he added.

Tontine pacts ward off divorce From page 6 young married North Shore couples chipped in for a tontine with a twist: The couple still married in 2000 would win the tontine. “We met every year for our tontine dinner and contributed to the pot,” she writes. “In 2000, we celebrated the end of the tontine by using its accumulated money for all of us to go on a fully paid three-day holiday at Harrison Hot Springs. We are all retired now, and still married to the same people.” Only one, her husband Mike, has since died. “We still refer to ourselves as ‘the Tontine Group’ and meet occasionally for lunches.” Marriage counsellors, suggest this inducement. ••• When, a callow youth of 19, I first vomited my way to London — seasickness, you know — Agatha Christie’s play The Mousetrap has already been running for more than a year. Incredibly, it’s still running there 60 years later. It’s booked till Jan. 3, 2015. Could easily out-live me. Even you.

Park, Colin Nairne (a longtime member of Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts) decided to put together his own band of musicmakers to play “classic bluegrass for modern times.” The High Bar Gang (made up of Shari Ulrich, Wendy Bird, Angela Harris, Barney Bentall, Rob Becker, Eric Reed and Nairne) played their first gig at Eagles Hall in Sept. 2010. At the time Nairne told the North Shore News: “We were sitting there just doing it for fun. It just seemed like the right thing to do. I thought if I’m going to play this kind of music, I’m going to surround myself with my musical friends that enjoy playing it. And that’s how the band came about. Someone said, ‘If we’re going to do this, we’re going

at least a couple of songs they performed at that very first gig (such as Julie Miller’s “All My Tears”) mixed in with a lot of classic bluegrass gospel vetted by Nairne’s pal Ry Cooder who put the setlist together. Bird, Harris, Ulrich and Bentall trade off on lead vocals and harmonies throughout the 13-track album which features several gems from the Stanley Brothers and Bill Monroe catalogues as well as some other favourites from the likes of Hank Williams (“I Saw the Light”). Recorded live off the floor in Barney Bentall’s living room on Bowen Island the mono recording jumps out of the speakers with an old timey feel full of smooth harmonies and soulful performances.

Bio/Graphic puts comics in context

Six artists featured in new Seymour Art Gallery show ■ Bio/Graphic: Autobiography in Comics, on now until Nov. 16 at Deep Cove’s Seymour Art Gallery. seymourartgallery.com ERIN MCPHEE emcphee@nsnews.com

The latest exhibition at the Seymour Art Gallery explores autobiography in the comic form and offers gallery goers an opportunity to see what goes into printed works, hoping to inspire them to experiment with telling their own stories through the medium. Bio/Graphic: Autobiography in Comics opened Oct. 9. On until Nov. 16, the show is cocurated by Seymour Gallery curator Sarah Cavanaugh and guest curator Luke Krienke. Cavanaugh decided to partner with Krienke due to his

background as a Vancouverbased comics artist, as well as his experience as a writer, illustrator and publisher. Getting to know one another, Krienke would bring her stacks of comics to peruse. “What I was really attracted to of the works that he presented to me was autobiographical work,” says Cavanaugh. “I think it’s because there’s this immediate connection that you have with people when they’re telling their own stories. Certainly there’s a voyeur aspect to it as well. But I think the fact that the stories are of such a personal nature really comes across in kind of a raw way.” Bio/Graphic focuses on six Lower Mainland artists: Megan Speers, Jason Turner, Sarah Leavitt, Sean Karemaker, Miriam Libicki See Turner page 15

Turner drawn to directness of form

From page 14

and Colin Upton. “What we’re trying to do is really introduce people to the process of making comics and give them some context for what goes into the product when you pick it up at a bookstore or at a comic shop,” says Cavanaugh. Featured artist Speers’ autobiographical book Wanderlust, the tale of a young punk finding her way through a city’s underground, is a pantomime, made of woodblock prints. On display in the gallery are: a row of the original blocks Speers carved that are inked; a copy of her original printed book, a handmade version; and the final printed version of the work that can be bought in bookstores. Turner, a North Vancouver resident, has pages from his autobiographical comics series on display, including: Year 40, about the year leading up to his 40th

birthday; Vinegar, a series he started in 1996; and Walk toWork, inspired by his daily walk from Keith and Chesterfield in North Vancouver to Park Royal. Turner started drawing comics when he was in high school in the late ’80s. When asked what attracted him to the medium, he says, “It’s just so direct, particularly the way that I’ve gotten to doing my autobiographical comics. I just draw them straight into ink, and not on fancy paper or anything so I can be on a bus or just sitting in a restaurant or something and easily draw something about whatever’s on my mind at that time.” While he also produces works of fiction (like series True Loves that he wrote with his wife Manien), he enjoys doing stories about his own life, feeling, “it’s interesting to notice the small details of everyday life,” he says. Turner currently pens a column in Broken Pencil, entitled Jason and the Comics: A Column

about Comics in Comic Form. His next project is a supernatural mystery story set in a North Vancouverinspired city. In the show,Vancouver resident Sarah Leavitt is offering insight into her graphic memoir Tangles: A Story About Alzheimer’s, My Mother, and Me. Leavitt started work on Tangles while she was working on her masters in creative writing at the University of British Columbia. Initially thinking she would focus her thesis project on a booklength work of prose about her mother’s illness, one of her instructors suggested she move in a slightly different direction. Throughout her mother’s illness, she kept a journal. “It was a really natural way for me to express myself just as I was writing about my own life, I would draw little pictures, not to show anybody but just as part of my diary,” she says. Leavitt put some of them together in a photocopied See Gallery page 29

Rosemary Georgeson was five years old when the Loretta B fishing packer sank off the coast of Galiano Island. It was Sept. 7, 1962 — a night she will never forget. As a violent storm raged outside, Georgeson, her mother and her siblings all gathered around the radio in their Galiano kitchen. Back then, if you turned the dial all the way to the left, you could hear the boat calls. Georgeson was hoping to hear word from her father who, as it turned out, was safely waiting out the storm on his fishing boat at the mouth of the Fraser River. But another vessel, the Loretta B, got caught in the eye and keeled under a westerly blow. Five men died, but the lone woman on board, Eileen Lorenz, survived. It was the eve of her 18th birthday. “She floated for six hours out there strapped to an old fish box. She was eight months pregnant,” Georgeson says, noting that Lorenz’s husband and brother were among those lost at sea. “It changed our community, of course.We were a small, very tight-knit community and it was a huge tragedy, a huge loss.” Today, Georgeson, a 56year-old Coast Salish/Dene artist (who attended the former North Vancouver High School), is committed to telling the story of the Loretta B. Her and Lorenz’s personal memories served

Rosemary Georgeson performs in Women in Fish at the Heart of the City Festival. Use Layar app to view video. PHOTO SUPPLIED DAVID COOPER as source material for Marie Clements to write Women In Fish. Originally performed as a play on Galiano, the story was turned into a CBC radio documentary in 2005 and has evolved over the years into a multi-media presentation. Produced by Urban Ink, the show will be remounted twice on Oct. 27 at Carnegie Community Centre as part of the 10th annual Heart of the City Festival. Women in Fish tells the tale of that fateful night in 1962, shares personal histories and memories of women who lived and worked in the West Coast fishing industry, and reflects on the demise of the once prosperous livelihood. This two-performer production features Georgeson as the

Cloudreader and Mary Galloway as theYoung Cloudreader. “Time has gone by, I’m in the spirit world now, I’m watching my granddaughter remember the stories that I shared with her. She’s remembering the story of that night and I’m there on stage with her and I’m still reliving that long, dark night, that memory, the loss of all those people,” Georgeson says. Meanwhile, historical and artistic images are projected onto the stage to support the storytelling. For Georgeson, Women in Fish is a medium to shine a spotlight on an unknown piece of history and emphasize the important role women played in the once-thriving fishing industry.

“We have so many untold stories as women, as First Nations women.We have untold West Coast stories, and this is one of them, in all of those categories.” The audience response has been profound, she says. “At the end of this show I’ve had men come up to me with tears in their eyes and say, ‘We never knew.’” Georgeson, like many of her peers, was born into the fishing industry. She worked as a commercial fisher herself, but quit 27 years ago after her boat was caught in a windstorm. It was a terrifying incident for a single parent with two daughters. “I kind of had to make a choice between being here for my daughters or possibly See Children page 17

Children grew up on the water not coming back from the next storm,” she says. Now a resident of North Delta, Georgeson reminisces on the days when the children of fishing families practically grew up on the water. “My generation, we’re the last of that generation that lived that way,” she says. “And in my 56 years here on Mother Earth, I’ve seen it all change, and I’m not the only one.” Women In Fish is a natural fit for the Heart of the City Festival, says Terry Hunter, executive director of Vancouver Moving Theatre, which produces the annual celebration of arts and culture on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. “The central mandate of the festival is to promote the arts and culture and the history and the heritage of our community,” Hunter says. “The fishing industry is a major component of our history so this is a way that we can raise awareness.” “We have a very large aboriginal community in our neighbourhood,” he adds, “so we’re always looking

for work that reflects the aboriginal history and the aboriginal culture and the aboriginal point of view.” Hunter has been a fan of Women in Fish since he first heard it broadcast on CBC. “I listened to it on the radio, and oh my gosh, I was moved to tears by it. It was so powerful.” The performance is just one of 110 events taking place at 40 locations across the Downtown Eastside over 12 days.The majority of those events are free, making them accessible to

the community’s large lowincome population. Looking back over the last decade, Hunter says Heart of the City has been successful in its goal of promoting local arts and culture. Members of the community regularly tell him how much they enjoy and look forward to the celebration year after year. “That kind of thing, it’s hard to quantify, but on a personal anecdotal level in terms of what I’ve seen, people really value the festival.”

The Fran Jaré Quartet will play a mix of original material and jazz standards Saturday night. PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD

Fran Jaré is having a hard time pinpointing which jazz vocalists are her favorite to cover. “Vocally would be Diane Schuur, Carmen McRae, Anita O’Day, Ella, of course,” says Jaré, referring to jazz icon Ella Fitzgerald. “And there are some contemporary people that I really like.” She then adds a current pop diva to the mix. “I like the way Beyoncé has done some of the standards as well, which people don’t know about but I really admire that,” she says. Jaré is bringing her band to the Anne MacDonald

Studio on Oct. 26.The Fran Jaré Quartet includes saxophonist and flutistTom Keenlyside, bassist Brent Gubbels and drummer Buff Allen, and Jaré has nothing but praise and admiration for them. “I’ve worked with them a number of times,” she says. “Tom Keenlyside (is) one of the most exquisite flute players I would have to say in Canada. He’s just such an extraordinary, world class musician” Keenlyside was inducted into the B.C. Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2006 and has worked with artists across a variety of genres, including Dizzy Gillespie,Van Halen and Kenny Rogers. Jaré calls bass player Brent Gubbels ‘the rock.’ Gubbels has performed at both the Lincoln and John F. Kennedy centres for the performing arts. See Church page 24

looking forward to opening for the Dixie Chicks in front of a larger audience. “I am just excited to be in a big room in front of a big crowd,” Mars says. “They’re like one of the highest all time selling female acts in the world.” Mars was born in El Dorado, AR, and grew up listening to music by artists such as NeilYoung and Bruce Springsteen. He released his first album Broken Arrow in 1997 after borrowing money and selling his car. Since then, Mars has released six more recordings including his most recent work Blackberry Light in 2012. There have been plenty of challenges for the Arkansas native in his career. During the late 1990s and early 2000s, Mars battled with drugs and alcohol and eventually entered rehab. He then relocated to Sweden and began performing at a local restaurant while he was living

that he’s worked with— Ed Bickert, Moe Koffman, Paul Horn, the famous Rob McConnell from Canada, Lenny Breau — worldrenowned jazz musicians,” says Jaré. The band will be performing a large repertoire divided into two sets, with one half being entirely original music. “We have such a wonderful mix of originals,” says Jaré. “The rest of it is a mix of contemporary jazz and also back to the roots, doing a tribute to Oscar Peterson and some other people like Carmen McRae, Ella and Anita O’Day.There are no musical barriers, the musical barriers were meant to be broken. So when people think of jazz, it encompasses so much and I want it to be for everyone, every listener.” The Anne MacDonald Studio, an old church that was converted into a rehearsal space, sits adjacent to the Presentation House Theatre in NorthVancouver. “When I saw the little heritage house and I saw a few concerts there — I thought how perfect because it’s small and it doesn’t have to have such a great amount of people. It’s just so beautiful, it gives you this feeling, this ambience of total relaxation and joy,” says Jaré. “The acoustics are divine, I was just amazed. If you dropped a pin you could hear it drop. Once the people are in there it’s just the perfect balance.” Getting the quartet together for the performance meant aligning everyone’s busy schedules. Jaré says they were all keen to work together and there was a lot of correspondence back and forth amongst the group. “We did a lot by phone or email, asking what would you like to collaborate with, what can you share, what can you offer,” says Jaré, adding they have worked on some of the selections before. “Everybody has something to offer so it’s such a treat.” Jaré says their audience demographic tends to be more middle-aged, but including pop and R&B material tends to draw in the younger crowd. “The audiences are, I would say, very appreciative of what we do,” she says. “We try to appeal to those people and to ourselves as artists.” Improvising and vocals can also bring people in, says See Jaré page 25

MUSIC Livemusicsaturdays

Jaré studied the organ From page 24 Jaré. “I think we’re very blessed to have a listening crowd,” she says. “They haven’t thrown any tomatoes and onions at us yet, but one never knows.” Jaré was born in Chicago and moved to Canada more than 40 years ago. She and her husband, originally from Alberta, decided to make Vancouver their home and currently reside in North Vancouver. Her career in music started when she graduated in 1965 from DePaul University School of Music in Chicago where she received her Bachelor of

Music in organ and minored in piano. “I did all of the Bach and (César) Franck and the baroque and all of that on the pipe organ,” says Jaré. “There isn’t a big market for organ concerts but I just dive at the chance to go hear them, because I love it so much.” After graduation, she was asked to go on tour playing piano for a year with the Lloyd Lindroth Show, an instrumental group, doing shows at Harrah’s in Las Vegas, Reno,Tahoe, San Francisco and the Stage Door at theWinnipeg Inn, “before disco was in vogue.” It was with this group that Jaré opened for music icon,

Antonio Carlos Jobim, a moment Jaré says she will never forget. Jobim, now best known by general audiences as the composer of one of the most recorded songs in history, “The Girl from Ipanema,” was relatively unknown at the time. “We were the opening act for him and so all the musicians had the rooms in the hotel. I remember that his door was open and I went in there and he was so gracious and I actually sat on the piano bench, there was a piano in this banquet room, and we had traded solos, I’ll never forget that in my entire life,” says Jaré. “It was a very

special moment and then when of course he became a legend, it was a very special memory.” Years later in 1972, Jaré was performing in a trio with her sister Angie Jaree at the Palmer House hotel in Chicago for $1,000 a week. She would take away yet another memory of one of the biggest acts in music history. “The Supremes were upstairs and we were downstairs, and I performed with my sister who now is one of the top ten studio singers in Los Angeles,” says Jaré. “I think this was a See Jaré page 37

Industry has seen huge changes over past decade From page 23 on a houseboat. He says the hardest thing for him throughout his career has been persistence. “To stay focused and believe that I was good at what I do and that I deserved to do it and I was going to prove that to myself and the world,” Mars says. “That’s a hard thing to do over a long period of time.” Eventually Mars put together enough money, largely from a one-night win at a casino, to begin recording new material. In 2004, after signing toV2 Records and returning to the United States, he released an eponymous album in May of that year. Mars says love and hate is what has kept his career going throughout the years. “A combination of love and a bottled up resentment towards everyone who said I couldn’t do it,” he says. “Any artist who is crazy enough to do it for as long as I have has got to have a little bit of

and I make money doing it,” he says. “A couple of x’s and o’s on a computer screen doesn’t really change that.” Mars says that while social media allows artists to connect with their fans it will not replace the connections made on stage. “I try to make it fun and interesting but at the end of the day if I am honest about the whole computer experience it is starting to feel unsatisfactory.When I connect with an audience in person, it never feels the same as when it is done through a computer.Why is that?” he says. “You can write a letter to someone and connect to them in a deeper way. Now you write an email or send an Instagram and somehow it doesn’t mean quite as much. “It is supposed to make me happy and it is supposed to fulfill my life but for some reason it falls a little short. It’s like a non-alcoholic beer.” For more information on Charlie Mars visit charliemars.com.

angry to fuel the fire. I have something to prove and I have almost proven it so I might as well keep going.” He says many of his musical ideas come from a simple walk, something he often does at home and on the road. “A lot of times I’ll do some research on the computer and find the area in the town that I think might suit me and I just go there and walk for hours,” Mars says. He has seen the music industry change dramatically over the last 10 years, especially since the advent of social media. “It’s good for getting out information quickly to a large number of people and that on its own is so valuable,” Mars says. “Most of the social networking for me tends to be like buying a box of candy. For a little while I am really into it and then after a while I don’t really care anymore. “I still make records and play music and perform live

Director and curator Darrin Morrison with featured artist Babak Golkar Representatives of theWestVancouver Museum held an opening reception for their newest exhibition, Dialectic of Failure — New Work by Babak Golkar, Oct. 10.The exhibition is presented in three pieces with each incorporating clay, which, according to the museum, speaks to the “painstaking and delicate nature of compromise and negotiation between dichotomies: historicism and modernity, art and craft, modern reasoning and traditional mysticism.” One features 30 terracotta “scream pots” that visitors can interact with, another is a digital projection of clay being thrown against a sheet of drywall and the third work is the actual sheet of drywall, showing the marks and stains. An artist talk will be presented tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 26 at 2 p.m.The show continues until Dec. 7. westvancouvermuseum.ca

Gabereau indulges obsession

Retired talk-show host opens shop-in-shop at Marilyn’s ANNE WATSON awatson@nsnews.com

FASHION FILE Our weekly roundup of fashion and beauty events and activities. page 34

Vicki Gabereau, best known for her work as a journalist and television personality, is now putting her hard work and determination into another passion: shoes. Gabereau has partnered with childhood friend Marilyn Diligenti, owner of Marilyn’s of West Vancouver, to launch VG Shoes. “She’s been bugging me to come and work with her in some capacity and we’ve been trying to think of ways to do it, and then this one just sort of gelled,” says Gabereau. “I like shoes and I understand shoes and I understand women’s feet for some inexplicable reason. At a certain stage you do not want shoes that hurt — the end.” Gabereau, a three-time ACTRA Award winner for best radio host-interviewer, retired from her self-titled daytime talk show on CTV in 2005. She says she still does some work for the Knowledge Network but she wanted to do more. “I’ve been sitting around watching black and white movies on TV since I retired and it’s time really for me to do something,” says Gabereau of her move into fashion. “Nobody at age 67 goes into retail if they’re

PHOTO PAUL MCGRATH not half mad, which is me but anyway we’re having a million laughs, it’s so funny.” Diligenti has been in the business of women’s fashion for 31 years and at her current location in Caulfeild for 25 years. “She’s had a very successful business and she wanted to expand shoes and I’m slightly obsessed with shoes and so is she,” says Gabereau. “I took over two-thirds of one of her stores because her stores are in three different rooms, so I took over part of one of those rooms and made it into a shoe department.”

The shoes come in a variety of styles and colours, and prices range from $60 to $375. “I like coloured shoes and apparently they are not the most popular thing, but they are getting more popular,” says Gabereau. “We bought some red boots, like winecoloured boots, bright blue suede boots and some bright blue low boots. And we’ve got smoking shoes.” The shoes are also from a range of designers, including Michael Kors, Steve Madden, Harlow, and Stuart Weitzman. Gabereau says they try on all the

shoes when they go to the manufacturer. “You want an eclectic mix,” says Gabereau. ““The main thing is, it’s not that these shoes aren’t really available elsewhere, it’s that when you come in to buy something at Marilyn’s, let’s say mother of the bride or a prom dress or a suit or whatever, because she’s got everything, that you don’t have to go downtown to buy the shoes.” Gabereau says they want customers to experience one stop shopping and to walk out of the store completely outfitted. Part of the

experience is also the close relationship between the staff and the clientele. “I was in the business of ‘so you wrote a book, gee thanks, bye,’ you do an interview and then everybody goes away and that’s the end of it,” says Gabereau. “But this builds continuing relationships. Everybody knows everybody’s life, a great number of these people (have) known each other for years and years, so it’s really very amusing.” Gabereau is also looking See Gold page 34

to eventually start her own line of shoes. “I am going in November to meet a shoe designer to see what we can do about our own line,” she says. “You require a great deal of money to start a shoe line and you need a great deal of consistency so you have to know what you’re talking about.” Gabereau says she has learned a lot from working with the staff at Marilyn’s

and says the earliest they might have a product is next fall. “I want good looking shoes that are comfortable, that are cute, that are colours and not just all black,” she says. Gabereau’s love of shoes started when she was young. “My mother wore beautiful shoes and when she died I kept one pair of her fantastic Bruno Magli gold high heels — evening slippers, fantastic sandal-ly shoes and the most beautiful heel and the most beautifully made,” says

Gabereau. “She had a lot of shoes, my mother.” Gabereau’s own personal shoe collection runs anywhere from 50 to 60 pairs, including running shoes and “boots for slogging around in the mud.” “I’ve just vetted some of them and I’ve just bought three or four in the last couple of weeks, obviously,” she says. “I have about 10 pairs of outside mucky shoes because I muck around quite a bit in the dirt gardening.”

ing, according to Janey Chang. The outdoor education manager at Mt. Seymour has guided many neophytes into their first pair of snowshoes. “It’s magical and an incredible way to explore nature in winter. It’s peaceful and just such a great way to exercise while recharging your batteries,” she says. “Some people think that’s it’s going to be really, really hard. And it is work, but in a good way because it’s not like you’re on a treadmill in a gym. You have incredibly beautiful surroundings.” Most novice snowshoers tend to get the hang of it quite quickly, according to Chang. “You just have to pay more attention to your walking in the beginning. It feels a little bit odd for maybe the first 15 minutes and then once you get used to the size of the snowshoes, which really are quite small these days, you find that you’re just walking pretty normally.” Snowshoeing is friendly to all fitness levels, says Chang. “If people have done any kind of hiking or trail walking or any level of normal exertion then usually they’re fine on snowshoes.” Chang has seen people

young and old make it up steep hills. “If you take it really slowly, then you can take on almost any hill,” she says.

“It could start to snow at any given time so you want to make sure you stay dry,” says Chang.

However, beginners should tend to seek out flatter terrain, advises Chang. She suggests more undulating routes, with more flats or gentle rolling hills.

Cotton is not advised, and neither is bringing one heavy jacket.

Kids can snowshoe too, but parents should be aware that it may not be a long trip. “I’ve seen children as young as twoand-a-half on a pair of snowshoes. You’re not going to go very far though,” says Chang. By the age of four or five, children may be ready for a longer hike, she adds. When it comes to dressing for a snowshoe outing, Chang recommends layers because the weather can change abruptly in the mountains, so warm, waterproof clothing is recommended.

GET in EARLY

There is no better escape from the hustle and bustle of the city than the rhythmic clomping of snowshoe-

“If you come with a really thick parka, then you can’t really adjust your layers and you might over-heat and then you sweat and then get cold,” she says. Hiking boots are usually the best footwear when it comes to staying dry and stable. The outfit should be rounded off with a toque and gloves, and supplies should include water and a few snacks. Snowshoers should probably stay home during high winds, says Chang. “It’s generally good to stay out of the forest if there are high winds in case trees come down.” – JEREMY SHEPHERD, jshepherd@nsnews.com

Q

What ways can I use pumpkin to create healthy meals and desserts?

A

Aside from using pumpkins to create magnificent pieces of art, they can be a nutritious part of your meals this October. Half a cup of 100% pure pumpkin purée has 100% DV vitamin A, 10% DV iron, and is a source of fibre.

All pumpkins are edible; however, the larger carving varieties have a stringy, watery flesh and are not as sweet. They can be puréed in soups and baked goods. Pumpkins with sweeter meat are smaller, such as Sugar Pie, New England Pie, Baby Pam Pumpkin or Cinderella Pumpkin.

And so the three of us, on our breaks, would go upstairs to the (Empire) Room and watch the Supremes, with their gorgeous sequined dresses and beautiful vocals.” She says the famous group recognized the young trio and would smile at them. “Every chance we had, we’d go upstairs and watch them,” says Jaré. The gig lasted just short of two months. Jaré was leaving Chicago for Canada to get married and her agent was less than enthused. “Muriel Abbott, an elderly woman with a hair net, I’ll never forget, was Jack Jones’ agent. She was totally furious when I had to leave,” says Jaré. “We almost had to laugh inside the way she was carrying on.We could have had that standing gig for a long time.” Some of Jaré’s favorite memories now happen in the moment when she’s performing. “When there’s some magical moments that

happen and the group is feeding off each other, or I should say the interplay of spontaneous, in the moment, solos,” Jaré says. Recently she has had some great moments with her other band, SoulTrax. “At Harmony Arts Festival this last August, the band seemed to have the happening chemistry on our last tune,” she says. “The crowd kept shouting ‘more,’ but we had to move on for the next group. It was a very meaningful performance.” Besides SoulTrax and quartet work, Jaré also does solo and duo work, and continues trio work, though no longer with her sister. She enjoys the experience of interchanging between the groups. “That’s really the fun part because it gives you that opportunity to do all the crossovers and then of course it shows the versatility of these musicians, they’re not stuck into one genre,” says Jaré. “I think it gives you a lot more spontaneity and it makes one have to do a lot more research into it, and helps you to become so much better and improved as

a musician.” Jaré, playing a B3 organ, will be reuniting with Gubbels and Allen in November for a tribute to Shirley Scott and Jimmy Smith at CoryWeeds’ Cellar Jazz Club, along with fellow musicians trumpeter Chris Davis and saxophonist Dave Say. She is also hoping to do some more composing. “I definitely want to do another CD,” she says. “I’d like to do an album of originals, maybe include one standard, with some of these incredible, exquisite musicians that I have been blessed to perform with.” Jaré finds when she’s composing, inspiration comes from a variety of sources. “I guess it would be like a writer where things would just happen, it sometimes happens very, very quickly, spontaneously, and other times you really have to work at it,” she says. “You’ll come across a dead end, like a bridge of a song, and say ‘this doesn’t sound right,’ but after you go back and leave it and come back the next day, it all tends to gel. Or I should say it comes into place.”

SEX, FILM AND TAX SHELTERS Sexcula — the Canadian taxpayers’ first (and only?) hardcore sex film — made in West Vancouver 40 years ago at Panorama Studios gets its first official public screening tonight at Vancity Theatre at 10:30 p.m. The film, directed by North Vancouver filmmaker “Bob Hollowich” after the original director was fired, screened only once back in the day for cast and crew. Produced by construction contractor Clarence Neufeld, Sexcula was never distributed to theatres but a copy was sent to Archives Canada to fulfill tax credit obligations. For more on the background of the film visit vancourier.com/ entertainment/long-lost-cult-film-sexcula-sinks-teeth-into-vancouver-audiences-1.662824 and for an interview with the director go to blogs.theprovince.com/2013/10/17/vintage-b-c-madeporn-flick-sexcula-unveiled-after-40-years/.

Volvo a leader in more than just safety BRENDAN MCALEER ContributingWriter

Researching an article is always a troublesome thing for the easily distracted. One moment I’m attempting to simply put together a timeline of rallying in Africa, the next I’m looking at old pictures of Volvos. Here’s where I fell down the rabbit hole. In 1965, a field of wellsupported factory rally teams landed in Eastern Africa, ready to do battle over 5,000 kilometres of difficult bush road and treacherous landscape. It was the unlucky 13th such outing in a race growing in popularity — a challenge that captured the imagination with exotic beasts and a beautiful, yet brutal terrain. Day and night they raced without rest, and at the end of it all, a local guy beat the pants off all the pro racers in a handme-down Volvo that had already been thrashed over 65,000 km of the same stuff. The car had suffered severe abuse, yet Joginder Singh, known as the Flying Sikh or Lion of Kenya, piloted the scrappy little Volvo to his first

Five or six years ago, I parked my car outside the Earl’s over on Broadway near Granville. As I fished my indestructible Nokia (remember when phones were just phones?) out of the glovebox, I sensed something weird. There was a dark grey Mazda3 hatchback parked in front of me. Seems normal, but is that a dark grey Mazda3 hatchback parked behind me too? Quite the coincidence, but not that weird — wait, is that another dark grey Mazda3 hatchback parked in line? There’s another one, across the street.

Grinding Gears

And then — you couldn’t make this stuff up, folks — two more dark grey Mazda3 hatchbacks drove past, side-by-side. Clearly

there was some sort of glitch in the Matrix that day. But such was the popularity of the first generation Mazda3, a stylish machine that drove very well and had reasonable carrying capacity.The Honda Civic still outsold it — Canadians being as fond of that car as we are of socialized medical insurance, hockey, and being polite in public yet very angry on call-in AM radio — but the Mazda3 was a close second in the sales race, and owners loved them. There were exactly two problems with the car: the back seats were too cramped and the 2.3-litre

engine in the GT model sucked down gas like a V-6. Then Mazda redesigned the car with slightly better driving dynamics, eventually improved the fuel economy and did not-too-much about those rear seats. Sadly, they also decided to put a wildly grinning mug on their ‘3, and while I didn’t mind the looks of it, clearly some of you did.The Mazda lost sales ground to the Corolla and Elantra. So here’s the new one, and I have to say, all is well again. Better than well. Seriously, we’re about to be

From page 49 historic win. These days, Volvo is a luxury marque differentiated by its trumpeting of Scandinavian design. Mostly that means lots of slow-mo PR shots of extremely attractive blond people wearing mock turtlenecks and designer glasses, but there’s also a lot of curvaceous sheetmetal and fancy-pants interiors. Forgive me for saying I liked them better when they were bricks. We had a Volvo when I was a kid. It was canary yellow in colour and shaped like a small cardboard box stacked on top of another cardboard box. It surprised me not at all to be going through old pictures of my wife’s childhood and discover that her folks had one too. Same colour and everything. This is how most people remember the Volvo brand, as a safety first lump of

Swedish steel that looked like it was screwed together out of plywood. It’s a bit like the Ikea bookcase: everybody’s had one at one point or another, it does a simple task with simple construction and asks very little of you. The apparently brute-simple design often inspired the term “Swedish tractor.” The first Volvos rolled off the line in April of 1927 in a factory on the outskirts of Gothenburg. These early open fourseaters look pretty much the same as any car from the pre-war period to the inexpert glance, save for their signature square grille with a diagonal slash across it. This would become an enduring Volvo trademark that’s still seen today. The early cars were dubbed ÖV4, though Volvo fans might remember them as being called Jakob after the name day of one of the early prototypes. They were capable little things, with a modest 28 horsepower,

and they seemed to handle the rugged Swedish weather just fine, being built with better quality steel than their imported counterparts. At the same time, Volvo produced trucks and would later acquire a marine division. They built cars right through the Second World War, less affected than other companies because of Sweden’s neutrality, and in the postwar period began actually exporting cars in some numbers. The first of these was the PV444, a roundfendered 1940s car that looked a bit like a scaleddown Chrysler. It became quite popular, and between all variants, from wagon to coupe to sedan, Volvo sold half a million of them. It was a later version, a PV544 with a single-piece windshield and four-speed gearbox, that Joginder Singh would drive to his See Safety page 51

Safety comes first but speed is a close second From page 50 historic African rally win. These things are basically indestructible, especially the later models with the 1.8-litre fourcylinder engine, the B18. This five-bearing powerplant would show up first in a far more curvaceous application, the P1800. You probably remember the swoopy P1800 from the TV show The Saint, which starred Sir Roger Moore and a sleek, all-white coupe. Bodied by English firm Jensen, perhaps bestknown for their Interceptor, the P1800 has the looks of a thoroughbred but the

In 1963, Canada found itself written into the Volvo story with the opening of a Volvo factory in Halifax. This would be the only Volvo plant outside of Europe, and built PV544s, 122s and 123s for the Canadian and U.S. markets. Domestically produced 123GT coupes were actually called Volvo Canadians.

While the very limited T5R is perhaps more droolworthy, the 850R is even better as a future collectible as you could get it in wagon form and with a five-speed manual transmission. Few were sold and fewer still remain, but there’s something really Volvo-ish about a high performance station wagon. Safety, fast.

station wagon behaviour would stick with Volvo right up to their switch to front-wheel drive with the 850 line, including a stint in the rough and tumble British Touring Car Championship. As the 850 came into production, it’s worth noting that Volvo was still building 240 variants — nearly two decades building the same car. While Volvo currently has some higher performance Polestartuned models, they’re mostly a company of crossovers these days (just like everybody else). So let’s wrap things up with one of the last really crazy front-drive cars, the 850R.

why everyone’s parents bought one. But let’s end up by talking about the nutty turbocharged models. Saab was first of the Swedes to turn to forced induction, but the 240 Turbo was no slouch in the 1980s, and with rear-wheel drive was even a sort of prototypical drift machine for Swedish rally hooligans. Volvo put turbo technology right into their wagons, meaning that the later 760 wagon could be spec’d with a manual transmission, rear-wheel drive and a turbo engine. That doesn’t scream safety to me: that says “sideways!” This sort of nutty

a car assembled in the Maritimes. In ‘66, Volvo leapfrogged ahead with safety features on their new 144 that included crumple zones, disc brakes all around, and a steering column that would shear rather than stab an occupant. It also had a twinned brake system so that there was a backup in case the brakes failed. Volvo had already invented the three-point seatbelt in 1959 and, having seen how important it was, released the patent so other companies could use it. To a reputation for strength and durability, they added an aura of safety, which is probably

Swooping style lines and a long hood are part of a the package on the great looking Mazda3. PHOTO CINDY GOODMAN

Alfa Romeo Giulietta with an air of reliability. The shield-shaped grille draws back and over the stylized headlights, swooping into a curving style line that draws the eye along the flank of the car.The new Mazda3’s hood is very long indeed, giving it the profile of a larger car rather than some snub-nosed compact, and it all comes together well at the rear with a nicely integrated rear spoiler and not too many fussy details.

with plenty of piano-black trim, a driver-focused cockpit, and very nicely stitched seats. There’s none of the futuristic flair of a Focus here; you simply get a sense that the materials used were shaped in such a way as to disguise the fact that this is an entry level compact car for the commuter with an eye on their budget. Can we use the word “nice” here without it seeming like an epithet? We could also say that it’s a bit BMW-y in here. The steering wheel is

great, perfectly set up for a nine-and-three hand position, and it tilts and telescopes on all models. Manual height adjustment for the driver’s seat is also standard, though you have to move all the way up to a Luxury package on the GT to get variable lumbar support. However, I found the ‘3s seats very comfortable, and having set them in my normal driving position, I was pleased to find that the rear seats are now roomy enough to be class competitive. As far as the on-board infotainment went, Mazda has seen fit to bolt a sort of seven-inch iPad to their dashboard and pilfer the iDrive controller out of a BMW.This strategy works great — the touchscreen display is high resolution, intuitive and attractive, the controller handles functions easily, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road, and it’s all standard on the midlevel GS model and up. Two minor quibbles: I didn’t love the small digital rev-counter, and the digital fuel meter proved as overly optimistic as those things always do.

Performance Skyactiv technology, which is supposed to be printed in all caps for extra effect except my EDITOR won’t let me, was only partially available on the previous generation Mazda3. Basically, you got the new engine with its injectors and lightweight rotating assembly, but you didn’t quite get the full highcompression ratio available on the CX-5 and new Mazda6. The reason that Mazda couldn’t cram the fullstrength version of their powerplant under the hood of the old car is that there simply wasn’t room.That new long hood is entirely functional as plenty of space is required for the Skyactiv’s exhaust system. This incredibly complicated knot of pipes snakes and twists around the catalytic converter, faintly resembling Robocop’s duodenum. It’s what hotrodders might recognize as a 4-2-1 header, a highflow design that allows See Mazda page 55

exhaust gasses to get out of the way faster, reducing temperatures inside the combustion chamber. Why is this good? It helps Mazda’s engineers run this 2.0-litre fourcylinder at a Ferrari-ish 13:1 compression ratio on regular-grade gas, meaning that it’s able to squeeze out 155 horsepower and 150 foot-pounds of torque, with a clean burn. It’s worth noting that Ford is able to get even more power out of the same displacement (a little less torque though), but the Mazda is also making thrust with less fuel and beats the Focus by nearly a litre per 100 kilometres in the city. Never mind all the engineering stuff. All you need know is that this car is a hoot to drive, with plenty of power for passing and a willing, revvy engine.The six-speed manual in my tester has a great feel to it, very direct, and if it’s not quite as good as the MX-5, you can at least tell that the cars come from the same

company. Given how good the six-speed automatic was in a similarly powered CX-5 I drove, it should be plenty fun in the Mazda3 too. The steering doesn’t quite have the same feel as the old car, but it’s miles ahead of most of its competition. Paired with a nicely balanced chassis, the car has a zippy, nimble sense — but you were already expecting that. It is worth mentioning again though: this is the segment leader for fun-todrive, and feels like it was built by a company who has continually placed a heavy emphasis on being a driver rather than a passenger. It’s a sensible-looking thing, but you can still have quite good fun in it and, because it’s not some huge horsepower Autobahnburner, you can do so without being too much of a miscreant. And then there’s the bit you perhaps weren’t expecting.While most modern cars need to be slowly driven as if you were transporting crates of sweating dynamite in order

to get anything like the stated fuel economy figures, the Mazda3 does not. “Light the fuse!” it cries, and away you go haring along your favourite curvy road, free from the penalty of having to pay for it at the pump.The larger-engined GT model may prove to be a little thirstier, but my 2.0-litre tester sipped like a hummingbird while it zipped like one too.

Features From $15,995, base model Mazda3s get a decent standard load-out including power door locks, mirrors and windows, as well as a few nice extras like Bluetooth handsfree, pushbutton start, and automaticoff headlights.You do have to pay extra ($1,600) for air-conditioning though, and I can’t imagine the dealer is going to stock a

car without it. Moving up to the GS model ($19,695), where the bulk of sales will be, nets you the 16-inch alloys, backup camera, cruise control, touchscreen interface and a better audio system with six speakers. Optional packages on my tester included the $500 convenience suite, adding heated seats, leatherwrapped control surfaces and rain-sensing wipers. It also had the $1,200 moonroof package which

pairs a power moonroof (well, duh) with foglights for some reason.Who wants to look at the moon while driving in fog? Werewolves? Anyway, at the top of the tree is the $25,855 GT with the larger 184 horsepower 2.5-litre engine, 18-inch alloys and all kinds of high-tech goodies like satellite navigation.You get an automatic transmission only here, as well as available packages for leather seating See Competitors page 57

(Luxury, $1,500), and driver’s aids like adaptive lighting and lane departure warning (Technology, $2,500). It is still possible to spend quite a lot of money on this car, and people do. Fuel economy figures for the 2.0-litre with the six-speed automatic are set at 6.7/4.7 litres/100 kilometres city/highway.The 2.5-litre rates at 7.2/5.1 l/100 km. Both figures are quite close to what you actually get — drive very gently on the highway and you can sometimes even beat them.

The Toyota Corolla is on the opposite end of the sedan spectrum from the Mazda3, prizing legroom and smoothness over sporty performance. PHOTO SUPPLIED

Green light Nippy handling; great styling; hugely improved interior with useful space as well as easy to use technology. Stop sign Pricey top model; no lumbar support; extra charges for heated seats and air-conditioning.

Competitors Toyota Corolla ($15,995) The Corolla might just be the antithesis to the Mazda3, built to drive smoothly rather than sporty, selling on resale rather than racing pulses. Toyota also redesigned their compact for the 2014 model year, and it’s improved.

It’s still not much fun to drive, but with a new available CVT, it does get very good fuel economy, and the rear legroom is massive. It also doesn’t look dull anymore, and while it’s no driver’s car, it’s smooth and stable on the highway. mcaleeronwheels@gmail.com

The checkered flag Just as sensible a choice as anything else on the market while being better looking and better driving. Prepare to be surrounded by them.
