Wall group the Binning House buyer Heritage advocates andWV hope court will stop sale BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

The would-be buyer ofWestVancouver’s historic Binning House is a subsidiary ofWall Financial Corporation, the company of prominent Lower Mainland real

estate developer Peter Wall. Court documents filed Thursday confirm rumours passed among heritage advocates who will be petitioning in B.C. Supreme Court to stop the sale on Monday afternoon. The home, which

belonged to artist and architect B.C. Binning and is considered the first example of West Coast modernism, has been in the hands of The Land Conservancy of B.C., a non-profit now in bankruptcy protection after racking up $7.5 million in debt. TLC was looking into selling some of its 48 properties, when it was revealed last month that an anonymous private buyer

had offered $1.6 million to TLC and the promise to restore the home to its former glory, though the Binning House hadn’t been considered for potential sale according to TLC manager John Shields. In her will, Binning’s widow Jessie asked that the home be left in public or non-profit hands so it could be preserved as a place of history for public and scholarly access as it

was during B.C. Binning’s lifetime. The prospect of the sale, as it appears on paper, is “horrifying” in the words of Adele Weder, an architecture journalist who was a friend of Jessie Binning.The court report prepared by receivership firm Wolrige Mahon specifically addresses the public access issue. “The monitor has reviewed the will, the provisions of the BHPS

constitution, the legal notation on title and the National Historic Site of Canada designation, none of which mention or require public access to Binning House,” the report, states. “It’s on the record now,” Weder said. “It’s not a fear. It’s a confirmation. Once it’s private, it’s really private.” Weder and other heritage advocates argue that TLC See Court page 5

Local volunteers collecting signatures in a campaign to change the way marijuana laws are enforced say they aren’t giving up, although they still need several thousand names to meet their target. “We do have momentum,” said Michael Charrois, a former federal NDP candidate who is coordinating the campaign for Sensible B.C. in three of the North Shore ridings. “It’s not too late.” Recently, canvassers in North Vancouver-Lonsdale still had about 1,000 signatures to go to meet their target, while volunteers in both West VancouverCapilano and North Vancouver-Seymour still had 2,000 signatures to get.

NV woman aids Syrian refugees Friends, supermarket pitch in

JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

ANNE WATSON awatson@nsnews.com

A North Vancouver woman has helped a family from war torn Syria settle into their new home in Canada. Shula Klinger, a Lynn Valley resident, heard about the plight of Asseel Alhalabi and her family from a mutual friend. The Alhalabis came to Canada as refuges from Jaramana, Syria in October. They had brought only a few suitcases with them. Klinger decided without hesitation to help, and set about collecting money and household items for the family. “They came here with very little and needed to get set up,” said Klinger. “I guess it’s just basic empathy really: How would you cope, how would you feel if you stepped off a plane with an 18-month old daughter and you had to find a job and a place to live, in a country you that had never been to, or at least never lived in.” Klinger took to her Facebook, posting that she was helping the family and asking any of her friends if they could help out. “Before they arrived I already started trying to find stuff for them because I knew they wouldn’t have an apartment or furniture or anything,” said Klinger. “I just said, ‘Hey, who wants to help this family now that they’ve got here and they’ve sort of landed on their feet? Who wants to help out bearing in mind they have really nothing in the way of household stuff, or very little?’

Police still seek trail stabber

Shula Klinger has taken it upon herself to gather donations of money, furniture and toys to aid a Syrian refugee couple with a young daughter set up home in North Vancouver. PHOTO CINDY GOODMAN “And people just came forward and said they would be happy to send me money.” Within two days, Klinger had raised $100 in donations. She took the money to Real Canadian Superstore, who agreed to match her donations. “I was just stunned,” she said. Klinger managed to collect furniture as well, including a table and

chairs, from a friend who was downsizing. She said the Alhalabis received the furniture a couple of weeks ago. “They’re thrilled, they’re deeply grateful,” said Klinger. “If you can help to ease the transition from the war zone to a peaceful home environment, I think it helps to do what we can because we’re so lucky here really.” Klinger said she received

an email from Asseel saying the gesture had helped her family feel at home and thanking Klinger for her generosity. Klinger was a new immigrant herself in 1997, when she arrived from England. “I came here on my own, as a single person, but coming from a country of peace,” she said. “They’ve come from a country that’s at war with only what they

can carry.” Klinger said she wants to continue to do more on a greater scale for the people in Syria, especially the children. “It’s refugees, it sucks to be one, it’s not a good space,” said Klinger. “We don’t want to see (them as) refugees forever but given that they’re going to have to live like this for a while, let’s make it easy on them if we can.”

North Vancouver RCMP say they’re still searching for a man who stabbed a 59-year-old stranger on one of Grouse Mountain’s trails last week. Police thought they had the culprit when they arrested a 26-year-old North Vancouver man Tuesday night following several tips from the public and a followup investigation. But by Thursday morning, as a result of new information, charges of assault with a weapon and aggravated assault were dropped and the suspect was released from custody. “He is ruled out,” said Corp. Richard De Jong. “He is not our guy.” De Jong refused to say what kind of information had led to the man’s arrest or subsequent decision to rule him out as suspect. He said police believe the person who attacked the stranger on the trail is still at large and are appealing for tips from the public. “There are a lot of concerned people out there,” he said. “It is a high profile incident.” The developments this week follow a bizarre incident Nov. 5 when a 59 year-old Vancouver man was heading up the BCMC trail on Grouse Mountain around 4 p.m. and happened across a stranger who was coming down the trail. Police said the two got into an “unprovoked altercation” and the stranger stabbed the victim in the abdomen. The victim met a group of other hikers who were able to call for help. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Older voters more likely to sign the petition From page 1 Volunteers are aiming for 3,500 to 4,000 signatures in each local riding. Charrois said he’s still optimistic the campaign will collect the signatures of 10 per cent of registered voters in each riding needed to force the issue to a province-wide referendum. “I’ve always said it’s going to be an onerous task,” he said. The Sensible B.C.

initiative petition, headed up by marijuana activist and former West VancouverSunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country NDP candidate Dana Larsen, aims to effectively decriminalize pot by changing the way laws are enforced. Sensible B.C. has until Dec. 9 to get enough signatures, which could prompt a referendum. It is the same method campaigners used to overturn the Harmonized

Sales Tax. Charrois acknowledges, however, that pot laws are a more touchy topic than the HST ever was. “People are afraid of the issue,” he said. Charrois said he’s found people under 25 and people over 60 are both more likely to sign the petition, while the middle-aged are more worried about the message they are sending their children. Some people have even heard rumours that if they sign, they won’t be able

to cross the Canada-U.S. border, he said — “which is absurd.” Terry Platt, a perennial NDP candidate who is canvassing for the petition in West Vancouver, said she’s noticed similar patterns. Platt said she is supporting the campaign because she thinks the “war on drugs” is futile and a waste of money. “I’ve never smoked dope in my life and I have no intentions to,” she said.

But she added enough prominent people in law enforcement believe that prohibition isn’t working. “It’s making ordinary people criminals and it’s making criminals very wealthy,” she said. Province-wide, the Sensible B.C. campaign had collected about one-third of the signatures it needed at the halfway point. But those signatures have not been evenly distributed. Lower Mainland residents

in particular have proved a tough sell. Charrois said elsewhere — like the nearby Sunshine Coast riding — the team has been so far ahead of its target that they are sending volunteer reinforcements to the North Shore in the coming weeks. He said the local campaign doesn’t have enough canvassers to go door-to-door so volunteers are concentrating in areas of high foot traffic like local malls.

Tory candidate sentenced

Drunk driving charges ended election bid JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

A former B.C. Conservative candidate for NorthVancouver who resigned just days into the provincial election campaign after being arrested for drunk driving has been sentenced after pleading guilty to two charges in court. Lloyd Jeffery Sprague, 39, was handed a suspended sentence, a $1,400 fine

and a mandatory one-year driving ban Nov. 12 after pleading guilty in North Vancouver provincial court to dangerous driving and impaired driving on April 18 of this year. Sprague had only recently signed on to represent the Conservative party in the provincial election this spring when he hit a parked car at St. Davids and East Second Street while drunk, drove a few more blocks, knocking down a traffic sign in a roundabout, and eventually clipped a woman on the sidewalk outside his apartment building as he entered the parkade near West Second and Mahon Avenue at about 3 o’clock in

the afternoon. Police attended and took Sprague back to the detachment for a Breathalyzer sample where he blew .180 — more than twice the legal limit for blood alcohol. A blood sample taken later in hospital put his blood alcohol level at the time he drove between .192 and .223 — between three and four times the legal limit. After the incident, Sprague immediately resigned his candidacy, said his defence lawyer Mark Slay. Slay said Sprague is an admitted alcoholic who “clearly wasn’t in a position to withstand the rigours of a campaign.

Court decides right to sell From page 1 does not have the right to sell the property as it was gifted to the non-profit by trustees of Binning’s estate. Weder compared sacrificing the Binning House for the good of TLC and its other properties to giving away a child to an orphanage for the good of the family. Among the forces lining

up to fight the sale is the District of West Vancouver. The district has already given the home heritage designation, meaning it can’t be demolished or altered without council’s consent, but there is nothing in place to preserve public access. “The position we take as a local government is we really believe the home should remain in the

public realm,” said Stephen Mikicich, the district’s manager of community planning. “That was the original intent.We are expressing concern over that formally through the proceedings that are underway at the Supreme Court and our solicitor will be putting forward that position on Monday.”

“He should not have been the candidate.” Slay said Sprague hasn’t driven since the incident and has remained sober. He has also moved away from North Vancouver. In handing down his sentence, Judge Steven Merrick said he took into account that Sprague has been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder — the result of a childhood in a violent and dysfunctional family.

Queen of bonusing I f you are confused about whether the outrageous bonus scheme at B.C. Ferries is gone or not join the lineup in the overflow parking lot. The corporation announced on Wednesday an end to the bonus scheme for executives and senior managers. But the fine print reveals that the executive bonuses, averaged for the last four years, will no longer be “bonuses,” but salary. In the real world, that’s a pay raise, not a clawback. It’s true the “bonus” part of the salary is not automatic; specified targets must be met. But since those targets are not defined, one can only imagine how the board of directors (we’re not sure which one — there are two!) will reward their hardest working execs. Most sailings cut? Biggest drop in ridership? Longest sailing wait? In truth, the money involved compared

to the sea of red ink upon which our provincial ferry system floats is miniscule. And if our intrepid executives could right their ship or at least get it pointed in the right direction, they would be worth every penny. Instead, expect to hear the transportation minister announcing service cuts next week and another barrage of public criticism. If Premier Christy Clark is “not happy” with executive remuneration at B.C. Ferries, she could do a lot more than moan about it. If Clark wanted to really shake things up, she should dust off the 2009 comptroller-general report that advocated a transport commission overseeing both TransLink and B.C. Ferries.We’d go further and suggest the Ministry of Transportation take direct control of both bodies, but it won’t happen because the current system exists to keep debt off the government books.

Pace of city development concerns Dear Editor: The unsigned advertising supplement Building the North Shore in your Oct. 30 edition, stated in part (referring to the City of North Vancouver): “that 1,500 strata units have been approved or recently completed, and 600 are currently in process.” North Van City Voices has updated the statistics for new developments. Our figures total 4,700 units, not the 2,100 total units stated in the supplement. There are three major developments coming just in Lower Lonsdale. The Metro Regional Growth Strategy assigned a growth rate of one per cent annually to the city.We have currently exceeded, with the planned

development, our 2031 targets for both number of units and population. At the Oct. 28 policy committee meeting at city council, questions were asked about development cost charge, as well as the cost to residents of all this development, and demand on infrastructure. The unsigned article also stated that “residential construction also benefits the tax base; the City of North Vancouver, for instance, collected $53,717 for streets and $1,726,931 for parks in development cost charges (DCCs) in 2012.” As pointed out in the consultant’s report to the city on the subject of density bonuses and amenities, development cost charges are levied

CONTACTUS

on new development to pay for basic community infrastructure. This encompasses water, sewer, roads, drainage, parkland etc. The City of North Vancouver includes some of these basic needs in the density bonus policy. Collecting $53,717 for streets does not even pay one salary. Many residents in the city are asking what benefits are coming from all this rush to densify? We have asked before, and now ask again: How will North Vancouver be a better place to live by increasing the population so quickly over the next 20 years? What’s wrong with steady growth at a pace we can accommodate, in terms of the increases in services,

amenities and infrastructure that we’ll need? We’re not confident that this council’s eagerness to approve more condo developments is matched by TransLink’s willingness to increase transit service, or the provincial government’s willingness to expand our only hospital.Where will our new parks come from? How long before we get a new recreation centre to serve our aging population? The apparent bias in favour of densification, combined with this

council’s philosophy on leveraging density bonusing to achieve social objectives, and its recent track record for approving almost every request to override the limits of the existing OCP — by our count, 15 times over the past couple of years — leaves us concerned that our community is being pushed in a direction that most residents would not support if they were ever asked directly.

Report scorns aboriginal funding model The notion that aboriginal communities are like black holes when it comes to government funding was strengthened considerably with the release of the latest scathing report by B.C.’s Children andYouth Representative. Mary Ellen TurpelLafond’s investigation of government-funded services for aboriginal youth was highly critical but not particularly shocking. Her main finding was that almost $70 million was given to aboriginal organizations over a dozen years without a shred of evidence that any of it was actually spent on services for young people. The money was, instead, largely used to pay people to go to meetings and conferences and to do a lot of talking.Turpel-Lafond’s report is entitled “When Talk Trumped Service.” She is characteristically blunt in her assessment of what she found, as in this: “There could not be a more

Keith Baldrey

View from the Ledge

confused, unstable and bizarre area of public policy than that which guides aboriginal child and family services in B.C.” Or this: “This story may read more like fiction than truth, but the numbers speak for themselves. Nearly $66 million has been spent without any functional public policy framework, no meaningful financial or performance accountability, and without any actual children receiving additional services because of

these expenditures. No beating around the bush here. A fundamental problem she uncovered was the B.C. government’s decision to treat aboriginal-run care agencies on a “nation-tonation” basis. As she points out, B.C. is not a “nation” and neither are these agencies. The government opted to simply send “staggering expenditures” out the door to organizations that lacked resources or the expertise to fulfil service obligations. She found that nearly $35 million alone was spent “discussing” something called Regional Aboriginal Authorities. Essentially, a bunch of meetings were held and reports were done. But problems facing aboriginal youth — parental addiction, domestic violence, poverty, neglect, mental health etc. — were not dealt with. But why this report is not particularly shocking is that this disconnected

relationship between governments of various levels and First Nations is evident in other areas. The lack of accountability, the maddening pace of improvements and a political cautiousness are ingrained in the relationship. For instance, billions of dollars have been spent on treaty negotiations, with precious little to show for all that spending. Again, lawyers and consultants and bands make money via governments but can’t point to many accomplishments. The aboriginal communities receive huge

amounts of government funding, yet many of its members are mired in a state of chronic poverty. Health outcomes among aboriginal people are among the worst in the country. There is a tendency among governments to simply write large cheques for aboriginal groups, as if that assuages any guilt that stems from taking vast tracts of their ancestral lands away from them.There is little follow-up to ensure money is spent properly or in ways that actually improve things. But the First Nations must share in the

responsibility for his situation. First Nations themselves insist on being treated as quasi-independent nations capable of managing their own affairs, albeit with significant amounts of government funding. Some can and do just that, but in many instances there is a complete failure of leadership among its leaders. Thus we are left with scandalous findings like those uncovered by TurpelLafond. She talks about the need to stop directing money into “the big theoretical See Fund page 12

Transit Police bust forged ID operation

Two former North Shore residents arrested ANNE WATSON awatson@nsnews.com

Transit Police have arrested three men, two of them originally from the North Shore, in connection with a large counterfeiting scheme. Elliot Mashford and Alex Lemmon, both 20, were arrested at their Vancouver residence on Oct. 28. Sean Weatherill, also 20, was arrested the same day in Richmond. Mashford is originally from West Vancouver, while Lemmon is a former North Vancouver resident. All three were wanted in connection with a major counterfeiting scheme that police estimate produced more than 2,000 pieces of counterfeit ID resulting in profits of more than $500,000.

“It started in midMarch of this year as a result of a liquor violation during which counterfeit ID was produced,” said Anne Drennan, spokeswoman for the Transit Police. “As a result of our officers spotting the counterfeit ID, we gathered some information about the supplying of youth with counterfeit drivers’ licences.” Drennan said the department’s Crime Reduction Unit launched an intensive investigation involving extensive surveillance and undercover work. According to Drennan, Mashford and Lemmon were identified as the leaders of the operation which police believe initially supplied counterfeit ID to juveniles, and then branched out to supply anyone who asked. “The ID was ordered online with people supplying their picture and personal information,” she said. The IDs ranged from Canadian provincial and U.S. state government, to

drivers’ licences, medical cards and even university identification. Police executed a search warrant on Mashford and Lemmon’s Vancouver home and found a “factory-style office.” “We seized cellphones, laptops, hard drives, card printers, thousands of blank PVC cards and hundreds of printed counterfeit ID. So effectively a major counterfeit operation was both disrupted and shut down,” said Drennan. “There is still forensic examination of the electronic devices that were seized to be completed, but it’s believed there are thousands of template IDs stored inside.” The men were not previously known to police. All three have been charged with the selling of forged documents and forgery. “We know that these kinds of things do exist from time to time,” said Drennan. “This is by far the largest operation that we have ever investigated.”

A10 - North Shore News - Friday, November 15, 2013

INQUIRING REPORTER On Nov. 4, City of North Vancouver council passed a motion calling on future candidates to refrain from taking campaign donations from unions and developers. While the motion can’t be legally enforced, it was aimed at freeing council from accusations that members’ votes had been swayed by campaign cash. Those who voted against it argued that they vote with integrity, and raising funds is part of being in politics. What do you think? Take our poll at nsnews.com.

Meera Dhebar North Vancouver “I’d like to think unions are not as biased as developers.”

— Brent Richter

Should council candidates take union and developer donations?

Bjorn Vegsund Vancouver “No, there’s already enough developer influence in the Lower Mainland.

Otto Vandereijle North Vancouver “No, I don’t think they should. They could get influenced.”

Ralph Lake North Vancouver “No, I’d rather they not . . . Because that way, their support could be purchased.”

Dorothy Gould North Vancouver “They could get it under the table and you’d never know the difference.”

Helicopter airlifts injured hikers Don’t wait to call for help: NS Rescue

BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

North Shore Rescue members had to airlift an injured hiker off Black Mountain as dusk fell Monday. Two Vancouver women in their early 20s were headed to Eagle Bluff next to the Cypress Mountain ski hill Monday afternoon when one of them tripped and sustained a serious ankle fracture. The injured woman’s friend attempted to piggyback her back to the ski area where they had parked. Despite strangers along the route offering help, when it became clear the task was too much, the group called the West Vancouver Police Department around 4 p.m. With less than an hour before darkness, the woman was lucky North Shore Rescue volunteers were at

the ready, according to Tim Jones, NSR team leader. “We didn’t waste any time because the light window was very reduced. Fortunately, the helicopter pilot was at the hangar.There were team members available and with

diminishing light, there was a helicopter rescue,” Jones said. The potentially difficult rescue underscores the need for adventurers to call for help as soon as they’re in trouble in the backcountry, Jones said.

As she points out, those front-line services have suffered because so much money was rerouted from them in favour of all those meetings and discussions. There have been many troubling and outrageous reports on various government entities over the years, but this one has to rank as one of the most outrageous. I’m told things have improved on this front in the last couple of years, and I hope that’s true. But I have a hard time believing the basic system of handing government funding over with no accountability or followup will change in any significant way. Hopefully I will be proven wrong, but given the shameful history of the treatment of First Nations by governments and by some of their own leaders, I’m not betting on it.

CHRISTINE LYON clyon@nsnews.com

Opening night is always a nerve-racking experience for those in the performing arts. But it was an especially anxiety-ridden evening for Alberta Ballet’s artistic director and choreographer Jean Grand-Maître when FumblingTowards Ecstasy premiered in Calgary two years ago. He was sitting right next to the show’s muse, singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan, who was

watching Alberta Ballet’s dance-based tribute to her life’s work for the first time. “She had this very emotional reaction. She was in tears and she was just very touched by what the dancers did,” Grand-Maître recalls. “She was tremendously proud.” An immediate hit with both McLachlan and the critics, FumblingTowards Ecstasy is currently touring B.C. and is making its Vancouver debut Nov. 1416 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Presented by Ballet BC, the show features more than 30 dancers from Alberta Ballet moving to McLachlan’s songbook.The narrative traces the spiritual journey of one woman through adolescence, first romantic encounter, betrayal,

mature love and loss. “It’s a very simple narrative, but we depend on the songs and the lyrics to give it more profundity,” Grand-Maître says. FumblingTowards Ecstasy is one of several “pop ballets” Alberta Ballet has produced over the years.The company has also paid homage to the music of Joni Mitchell, Elton John and k.d. lang.These contemporary productions attract new patrons, GrandMaître says, many of whom are ballet first-timers. “We’ve noticed that at least 30 per cent of our audiences have never been to a dance show, and they will keep coming back after that,” says the Hull, Quebec native. The company continues to stage classical ballets each season and fans of the

traditional works have been very receptive to the pop tributes, Grand-Maître says. More than a dozen McLachlan songs are featured in FumblingTowards Ecstasy, including such radio hits as “Building a Mystery,” “Into the Fire” and “Ice Cream.” “What we try to do is select songs from the beginning of their career to the last album and we try to use sometimes even unknown recordings,” Grand-Maître explains. “In that way, audiences not only discover the artist from the beginning of their career to the last album, but also their different styles.They discover songs that they may never have heard.” “At the end of the performance what we’re

hoping is that the audience is a bit closer to the singer/ songwriter.” The dancers at Alberta Ballet also relish the opportunity to perform to modern music. “In a way that’s the future.Young dancers, they want to do the (classical) ballets, but they also want to do the contemporary work. They’re very eclectic in their own tastes, much more than my generation was anyway,” he says. “The dancers enjoy it because they understand the lyrics that (McLachlan is) singing.When they’re dancing to Mozart’s Requiem in Latin they don’t always understand what they’re dancing to.” FumblingTowards Ecstasy

West Coast Symphony explores the work of JohnWilliams himself what all the fuss was about, he walked away with more than he bargained for. “Besides just being absolutely drawn into the story and the characters, I remember distinctly the music being so powerful that it’s lived with me ever since,” he says. The classic film was scored by famed American

composer John Williams, someone Beckett has long looked up to. The North Vancouver resident has been active in the local film music scene as a composer and conductor for more than 30 years. It goes without saying then that he’s excited to be taking the stage Sunday at Centennial Theatre as a guest conductor

The show’s repertoire includes: “The Raiders March,” from Raiders of the Lost Ark; The Music of E.T. — “Adventures on Earth” and “The Flying Theme;” “Three Pieces” from Schindler’s List, featuring a solo by violinist Mark Ferris, concertmaster of the Vancouver Opera Orchestra; the theme from Jurassic Park; the “Suite from Jaws;” and the “Star Wars Suite for Orchestra.” “I’ve always been a John Williams fan and always loved his music very much,” says Beckett. “Conducting his music with the orchestra of course made me have to really analyze and dig deep into the scores to really learn how he orchestrates, how he lets his themes unfold. So for me that was an absolutely thrilling process to go through that. And then too of course to

Ensemble playing for first time at Centennial From page 14 work with all the marvelous musicians of the West Coast Symphony, that was an added treat. They’ve just attacked this music with energy and excitement and they’re really playing well. It’s going to be an exciting concert.” Beckett has written music for more than 500 television episodes and 30 films, earning him Gemini and Leo Awards in addition to an Emmy nomination in 2000 for the main title theme for TV series Call of theWild. Recent projects include animated series Nerds and Monsters and upcoming Hallmark Channel holiday film Hats off to Christmas! featuring Haylie Duff. He also serves as music director of and conducts the Vancouver Film Orchestra, which performs and records scores for film and television, and most recently conducted the feature No Clue starring

Brent Butt and Amy Smart. This marks the first time Beckett has conducted the West Coast Symphony Orchestra and it’s the first time the ensemble will take the Centennial Theatre stage. “That’s a big thrill as well, to play in such a nice venue and to play on my home turf,” says Beckett. Audience members are encouraged to come dressed as their favourite character from a John Williams film and prizes will be awarded. “I’m hoping that we’re going to see maybe some Darth Vaders, or a shark or two. I think that’s a lot of fun and something to engage the kids with,” says Beckett. When asked whether Williams’ influence will be heard in his future compositions as a result of this experience, he says, “When you listen to John Williams music, even over and above the music we’re

playing this weekend, his music is always so different from project to project.” Beckett draws comparisons between the music of Schindler’s List and “The Imperial March” (Darth Vader’s Theme), as well as the music of Memoirs of a Geisha and the jazz-influenced score of Catch Me IfYou Can, pointing out that Williams’ music is always different and always appropriate for the film he’s scoring. “When given the opportunity to write something along the lines of an epic like StarWars or a deeply emotional film like Schindler’s List, I’m sure John Williams’ influence will no doubt come out in my work,” he says. In addition to Sunday’s concert, the West Coast Symphony Orchestra will present their John Williams program this evening at 8 p.m. at Vancouver’s Christ Church Cathedral at 690 Burrard St., also by donation.

JULIE CRAWFORD ContributingWriter

Like the first The Best Man film back in 1999, Best Man Holiday focuses on four friends and their ego clashes, crises of faith and relationship issues. But this time around there’s more holiday bling. The opening credits double as flashbacks to fill us in on the story arcs from the first film. Harper (Taye Diggs) is having a hard time writing a follow-up to his first bestselling book. He and wife Robyn (Sanaa Lathan) are expecting their first child after a string of miscarriages and costly in vitro procedures. Jordan (Nia Long) is a high-powered exec who still hasn’t told her friends about her white boyfriend (Eddie Cibrian). The school founded by Julian (Harold Perrineau) is threatened by his wife

Robyn (Sanaa Lathan) and Harper (Taye Diggs) star in The Best Man Holiday. Use the Layar app to view trailer. PHOTO SUPPLIED Candy’s (Regina Hall) colourful past. Quentin (Terrence Howard ) is a marketing exec who gets paid to tell white people what black folks like, and still beds anything with a pulse, while Shelby (Melissa De Soussa) is fresh off a stint on Real Housewives. Running-back Lance (Morris Chestnut) is close to retirement and an NFL record but has more pressing issues at home; his wife (Monica Calhoun) is

from time to time, and the couture-clad wives and girlfriends are all cleavage, all the time. The house is to-die-for, all dressed up for the holiday; ditto the children, seen and not heard. It all harkens back to a more glamorous time, when we didn’t need the sweaty, panting childbirth scene: it’s less likely, but much more pleasant, to see Robyn refreshed and sitting

the catalyst for bringing all the friends back together. These friends bring so much baggage — literal and metaphorical — to the Christmas weekend that there’s hardly enough screen time to deal with it all, though director Malcolm D. Lee tries: the film comes in at an overlong 124 minutes. The film is all about equal-opportunity eyecandy: the four hunky men are obligingly shirtless

Finding adventure close to home

Boarder Justin Lamoureux screens The Backyard Project atVIMFF’s Fall Ski Show ■ Fall Ski Show at the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival featuring presenters Justin Lamoureux and Austin Ross. Films: The Backyard Project, Elevation,Wrangelled. Centennial Theatre, Friday, Nov 15, 7:30 p.m. JEREMY SHEPHERD jshepherd@nsnews.com

Like a herd of nonconformists, many mountain adventurers explore the same resorts and ride the same slopes, year after year. Professional snowboarder and filmmaker Justin Lamoureux has seen those tours from the inside and outside. “It just kind of hit me one day that basically the whole entire ski and snowboard industry goes

up and down this highway and nobody stops and rides these mountains around my house,” says Lamoureux, a Squamish resident. While his friends headed to Alaska, Lamoureux glanced at his skyline. “I was looking around in my backyard one day and I was like, ‘Wow, I’ve barely scratched the surface,’” he says. There were 30 peaks he’d never set foot upon, and Lamoureux decided to explore each of them in a single season. Aided by his friend and camera operator Kyle Wolochatiuk, the experiment eventually became The Backyard Project. Beginning in February, Lamoureux and Wolochatiuk headed into the mountains by 5 a.m., spending at least 12 hours on the slopes.

In some ways, The Backyard Project is a continuation of the search for fresh powder that began in Lamoureux’s childhood. PHOTO SUPPLIED The first four or five hours were usually spent climbing, looking around corners and searching for a place to ride, according to Lamoureux. “Some days we’d only get one big run in and other days we’d get lots of little tiny ones in,” he says. There were other days

when even Google Maps and Google Earth couldn’t get Lamoureux on a good run before dark. Asked if he and Wolochatiuk came close to killing each other in the mountains, Lamoureux laughs. “That was a given,” he says. “You gotta move

Customize Your Comfort

very big distances during the day and you have to balance that with trying to get the shot so everybody’s got to hustle as fast as they can. Sometimes it gets frustrating.We definitely wanted to kill each other but we’re good friends, so it’s all good.” As the snow melted

and the slush cycle started, Lamoureux and Wolochatiuk headed back to civilization bearing a hard drive packed with 300 hours of footage. Asked how he edited all that footage down, Lamoureux replies: “With an axe and a hammer. Ruthlessly.” Speaking during a brief break from the final stages of editing, Lamoureux talks about cutting out the redundant and repetitive while holding onto moments that might resonate with an audience. “You don’t want to cut too much because you want to keep the things you might need for a storyline,” he says. “It’s a bit documentary style but at the same time you’ve got to arrange it in a sense that’s pleasing to the viewer and interesting but still true to the ski and snowboard videos I love so much.” When he’s finished, the movie will consist of four episodes totaling 50 minutes, Lamoureux says.

Mountains woven into the family’s identity From page 18 Like a Prairie dweller may be propelled to the coast by the prospect of the ocean, Lamoureux was lured to B.C. by the promise of the mountains. He was initially planning to live in Whistler before the real estate market pushed him to Squamish. In some ways, The Backyard Project is a continuation of the search for fresh powder that began in Lamoureux’s childhood. “I started skiing as soon as I could walk and my parents just always had me outside,” he says. The mountains are woven into the family’s identity to the point that Lamoureux’s parents were unperturbed by their son’s plans to spend the winter searching lonely trails for untouched slopes. “My parents are just like, ‘Sweet, you’re climbing mountains all day,’” he says. While he’s not certain, Lamoureux says he’s likely the first person to ride some of those trails. “Some of the stuff we

did I’m pretty sure it would be a first ascent because you need a special eye to see those lines and the ability and experience to get to them,” he says. The series includes stirring moments of Lamoureux trekking out of the green and into the white of the mountains, looking like a drop of ink on a snowman. But aside from the stunning cinematography, the project is also about resisting marketing. “I find society as a whole . . . we’re just always told that something is better all the time,” he says. “You have to go to the end of the world to go climb some giant mountain or ride down some big face that no one’s ever done before.” The Backyard Project encourages skiers, hikers, and snowboarders to explore what’s in front of them. Asked what audiences should take away from the movie, Lamoureux offers six words: “Get outside and enjoy the world.”

Grammy winner a natural subject From page 13 was conceived in 2010 when Grand-Maître was on theWest Coast serving as director of choreography for the opening and closing ceremonies of theVancouver Winter Olympics. It was then he connected with McLachlan, who performed at the opening ceremony. Known for her emotionally charged ballads, the threetime Grammy winner was a natural subject for an Alberta Ballet pop portrait, GrandMaître felt. And like Alberta Ballet’s other modern muses, McLachlan had staying power. “These singers, they’ve lasted the decades.They’re not like those sex bombs they invent every 20 minutes that disappear the nextTuesday.” After pitching the idea to an agreeable McLachlan, Grand-Maître visited her North Shore home where the pair spent an entire afternoon chatting about anything and everything. “It’s based on this discussion that we created the entire ballet.” Themes of sisterhood and female empowerment run throughout the ballet, and McLachlan’s love of the ocean and foreign culture is reflected in the set and costume design. Meanwhile, the title of the show is drawn from McLachlan’s 1993 album of the same name.The words also succinctly describe the personal dance vernacular of Grand-Maître, who strives to display the grace, elegance and ultra-control of ballet, “but I also like to show the contraction in the body and the effort to become graceful.” Grand-Maître is already brainstorming ideas for future pop ballets and rattles off a long list of Canadian and international artists he’d love to collaborate with. “Meeting the singers and getting to talk with them about the concepts and their music and their lives, it helps us try to create a more truthful portrait of some facet of that artist,” he says. “The last thing I want is to disappoint them.” Fortunately, that hasn’t happened yet. “So far it’s been very successful.”

A Healthy Career Choice

Personal training continues to grow as a viable career option and there is a serious need for highly trained and skilled personal trainers. If this is a career option you are considering, you need to get to know Donna Hutchinson.

“The demand is still growing and it’s been hard to keep up...” Donna has been in the fitness industry for over twenty two years. In 2010 she was awarded Fitness Educator of the Year through the BC Recreation and Parks Association and was nominated for the Business Innovation Award through the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, and the Women of Worth Award in 2012. “The demand is still growing and it’s been hard

to keep up,” says Donna, co-owner of On The Edge Fitness Educators Inc.“Our graduates are finding jobs even before they finish the program. Employers are constantly calling us and hiring our graduates.” When asked why the industry is growing so rapidly, Hutchinson says, “Everybody wants a personal trainer because it helps with motivation, adherence and clients get results faster. What’s special about On The Edge is that we are a private school for personal trainers. We take students through the certification process and then help them find a job or start their own business. Students work one-on-one with their instructors for about forty hours.”

“Everybody wants a personal trainer because it helps with motivation, adherence and clients get results faster...” It’s an intensive and comprehensive program. “They learn the theory of how the body works and then apply it in a practical component. We work with students individually because we believe it’s the best way to coach people to become personal trainers. We focus on a holistic approach to personal training which transcends just the physical but also looks at how trainers can incorporate behavior modification strategies and a comprehensive focus on nutrition.” Small group classes make for a more thorough learning environment. “We take five students a month into the program and students can start anytime.

Dear Santa

T

his just in! Canada Post has confirmed that Santa’s 9,000 postal elves have their pens, pencils and mailbags ready to receive letters from children all over the world. In a recent press release, Canada Post noted that Santa’s postal elves will help him answer more than one million letters in more than 30 different languages, including braille. More than 21.8 million letters have been received at Santa’s North Pole Post Office since 1982. According to Holly T. Elf, Santa’s CPE (Chief Postal Elf), there are three golden rules to remember when sending a letter to Santa: 1) Make sure you include your return address: Although Santa knows where you live, his postal elves need your address to deliver Santa’s letter to your home. After all, not everyone has access to Rudolph. 2) Send your letter soon: Letters are already arriving from around the world and Santa is busy reading them every night with Mrs. Claus. He encourages you to send your letter soon so he’ll have enough time to answer each and every one of them. Letters must be mailed by Dec. 17 to allow enough time for travel to the North Pole and back. 3) Remember Santa’s address: When your letter is ready, drop it in a mailbox anywhere in Canada and the postal elves will make sure it gets to Santa quickly. Santa has a special arrangement with the post office and a stamp is not required, but please remember any other letter or card being sent to Grandma or anyone else needs a stamp. Santa’s address is:

SANTA’S ARRIVAL CELEBRATION

A recent press release from President’s Choice notes that creating a tantalizing menu of nibble-friendly eats can take your holiday cocktail festivities from pop-andchip party to haute holiday fete. No matter what kind of event you’re planning, there’s nothing like kicking off the yuletide cheer with a tantalizing array of holiday hors d’oeurves. President’s Choice executive chef Tom Filippou provides the following holiday tips for party hosts. CHOOSE A DÉCOR THEME: Whether it’s traditional red-white-and-green motifs, modernly-chic mirrored finishes, or even bold red with a touch of gold, choosing a theme brings any event together for a simply elegant evening. CREATE A CHECKLIST: Making a list with must-have items that are sure to please makes planning a snap. SERVE SOMETHING UNEXPECTED: Not everyone likes the same kinds of foods, and your festive servings should reflect that. Offer your guests new flavours by serving dishes inspired by cultures from around the globe and make your menu one to remember. Put adventurous twists on classic favourites, such as curried turkey or cranberry chutney with a hint of spice. Moroccan cuisine is the flavor trend this year. Try hors d’oeurves that have a savoury Moroccan-inspired filling with notes of cinnamon and cumin. DON’T FORGET THE DESSERT: Serving all foods at once can take away from the menu you’ve worked so hard at preparing, so it’s best to serve dessert last. Offering guests an array of holiday-inspired desserts will keep them coming back for more.

Retailers should get social this season

T

oday’s wired world has made it easier in some ways for small businesses to reach out to customers. But for some small business owners, it may be difficult to know how best to incorporate new online tools, such as social media. “For many small businesses that cater to consumers, the promise of the holiday season brings the anticipation of increased sales, but how best to ensure success in our increasingly connected and wired world?” asks Mary Charleson (seen in the photo above), of Charleson Communications, a North Vancouver marketing consulting company. Leveraging the social side of holiday shopping could be one answer, says Charleson. “It depends on your target market and their use of social media,” she notes, “but for highly wired consumers, there is no denying the powerful influence of connections on social media.” Charleson points to a recent Crowdtap survey that reported 39 per cent of consumers surveyed said Facebook has influenced them to buy a gift, 64 per cent use social media to find the perfect gift and 44 per cent discover gift ideas through peer recommendations. “Using Facebook or Twitter to share, and Instagram, Pinterest or YouTube for highly visual material could work well. The key is to understand who is on each platform, and the unique attributes of it as a delivery channel,” says Charleson. Of course nothing beats being personable, she adds. “We buy from people we like, not faceless storefronts.” Online, personalized emails to your best customers with a family and friends offer, or having different employees write posts on your Facebook page and allowing them to share fun photos at work shows a personal side to your business, she explains. “Or perhaps it’s time to cut through the electronic clutter and send an old-fashioned hand-written card and personal note. In a world of burgeoning email in-boxes and social media overload, a hand-written card could cut through the clutter.”

When it comes to marketing for small businesses, Charleson says a real shift took place in 2007 when the iPhone was launched. “Really where the quantum leap has been made and where it will continue to really make a difference, especially to small business, is with the uptake of personal devices, so smartphones and tablets.” Prior to that there really wasn’t on-the-go web browsing, she explains. The uptake in personal device use really happened around 2010. Until then, if customers were going to web browse they did it at home or on their laptop. There was a defined time that people did their web browsing, but once the iPhone and tablets were launched people could web browse, shop, search, learn about products, and be informed in the time and place that makes it relevant to them, explains Charleson. “All of a sudden that makes real-time marketing and communication relevant to the consumer because it’s happening at the time and place when they choose it.” Then came apps, and they made tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube easier to view on mobile devices, she notes. Joining the mobile movement is a key tool for small businesses. “The big question I would ask right now: is your website mobile friendly? If it’s not, fix it.” Since so many websites are mobile friendly now, users get used to that and when they hit one that’s not they don’t bother with it, notes Charleson. “But it’s all relevant to your target market,” she says. Certain demographics may not be using smart phones as much as others; certainly the 18-35 age group as well as business consumers may be more mobile friendly. Social media helps promote word of mouth, and Charleson says word of mouth is valuable for two reasons: targeting and trust. The information is targeted because it’s likely only shared with people who are interested in it, and it’s trustworthy because “if friends are talking about it, it must be worthy of our time because we trust our friends,” explains Charleson.

As the holiday season approaches the quest for the hottest toys heats up. According to Neighbourhood Toy Stores of Canada (NETS), a network of Canadian-owned specialty toy stores and their suppliers, the hottest toys and games have always been those items that, along with safety and durability, draw children back to them on a repeat basis. In a recent press release, NETS noted that its retail members recognize a select number of products each year, presenting them with a Gold Star Award for exceptional play value. Each year’s Gold Star Award selections are, to a large degree, determined by parent feedback, stated the release. This year, Neighbourhood Toy Stores of Canada has awarded a Gold Star to the following products: • AIR POGO JUMPER • FOLDING TRAMPOLINE • PLUS PLUS MIDI • NADA • OOPS IMAGINE PUZZLE • MASTER WORKBENCH

• STARRY NIGHT • KENDAMA • LEONARDO DA VINCI CATAPULT • MARUSENKO • COLOURED SAND RAINBOW FISH

One business is proving that makeovers come in all shapes and sizes. Runaway Bay Beauty Bar, formerly the Runaway Bay Day Spa, has transformed from a business near closure to a functioning beauty shop. “I didn’t want to see it go away, it was such an institution in North Vancouver’s Edgemont Village neighbourhood, it had such an amazing group of women that worked here, such a phenomenal history and it just absolutely broke

my heart that there was no one that was wanting to continue that on,” says Kirsten Engel, the new owner of Runaway Bay. The North Vancouver mompreneur took over ownership of the business and immediately set about turning it around. “We needed an update, we needed a fresh location, we needed to get rid of some of the unused space,” she says. “We also just needed to modernize and update, create a beautiful new location that reflected the quality of the staff that we had and the caliber of

services that we do.” The company moved into neighbouring business, Beach Tanning, subleasing the space from the owner to cut down on cost. “We’ve made quite a few changes although, we’ve kept a lot of things the same,” she says. “There were a lot of things that were really important to keep the integrity of the business and that kind of stuff but make the changes so that it was viable and that it would continue on.” Engel says one of the services cut is full body massage. Prices have

remained the same and the company has even brought in a nail polish line by Deborah Lippmann. “It’s a higher end line, just beautiful colours. She does amazing nudes and neutrals but her sparkles are what she’s known for,” says Engel. A new feature to Runaway Bay is the online store runawaybay.ca, a venture that Engel says became an instant hit. “It was very much a learn-as-we-went type thing and we’ve had great, great customer feedback from the website,” says Engel.

At City Market, we source locally when available to reduce our ecological footprint and ensure that the environment is being valued. Up to 31% of the produce sold in our store year round is sourced from Canadian growers. The Local Garden greens come from Downtown Vancouver. Many of our grocery items are from

local vendors in North Vancouver, and stretch into Kitsilano and Burnaby.

At City Market, we source locally hot entrée and side dishes, when available in addition to to reduce our healthy salads, ecological pastas and footprint...

City Market is the only store to have Guiding Stars, an impartial nutritional navigation tool that uses star ratings to help guide customers toward nutritious hoices. Items in the store given are a 1, 2, or 3 star rating. Because we have brought in so many local products, we are slowly working on getting those items photographed and rated. Look for the blue stars the next time you’re in! We value food security and believe everyone should have access to nutritious food. Our store features a Home Meal Replacement department for seniors who do not have the facilities or ability to cook meals. We offer a variety of wholesome

sandwiches. We are currently establishing a grocery delivery program for seniors. Next time you’re in, try our famous rainbow kale salad!

We consider food as a valuable resource and put our best efforts into reducing waste. Another initiative being developed is donations to The Salvation Army. Have any nutrition questions? Email Jessica.Wang2@loblaw.ca and you might see your question featured in this article!

Sleigh-full of life lessons From page 17 up with her hair done. Not that Best Man is completely sanitized: there is sex-talk aplenty (which woman can best “rock the mic”) and an epic girlfight during which moms drop f-bombs in front of the kiddies. And all the goodtime ingredients are here, right down to a Christmas singalong, a Hail Mary football scene and a throwback New Edition dance routine. While there is some degree of mommy porn in the form of foot massages and men who do the grocery shopping, the female characters exist only to define their male counterparts. Some actors (Long, for one) fare better than others with limited material. There are other missteps, to be sure. It’s unlikely, for example, that hours after burying his beloved wife one character would wisecrack “I know my way around a vagina.” Lee pilots a sleigh full of life lessons about being open to love and trusting in God and manages to squeeze in a record number of film clichés and plot twists you can see a mile away. But the charm of the ensemble cast makes The Best Man Holiday enjoyable nonetheless. If you go in expecting a feature-length soap opera and some Christmas kitsch, you won’t be disappointed.

In amongst the approximately 11 billion emails I’ve been receiving about various horribly modified cars on display at this year’s SEMA aftermarket equipment show in Las Vegas was a missive from Ford and Hot Wheels. Powerless to resist, I actually read it. It’s a problem I have, one that’s been further enabled by the fact that I’m now a father. No power in the universe can stop me from peeking through a Hot Wheels display to see if there’s anything good hanging on those little pegs — I know they’re not for adults really, but, I mean, it says “ages three and up.” C’mon! Technically, I qualify as “up,” right? Plus these days I can always say that they’re for my daughter, who mostly just tries to eat them. Anyway, turns out Ford and Hot Wheels got

In 1996,Toyota launched the world’s first small SUV to use a car-like unitized chassis, the RAV4. It garnered a lot of praise because it offered more versatility than a car, but wasn’t as cumbersome as a large SUV. Due to its success, many of Toyota’s rivals created similar vehicles. As the popularity of these cars continued to rise, the RAV4 lost some momentum. Today, customers have a magnitude of choices in this segment — every major manufacturer has something to offer.Toyota is seeking to reclaim some of that

first thing people will notice is the RAV4’s sleeker and more athletic new look.The expressive front end leads to a more steeply raked windshield. A large, hatch mounted spoiler frames the rear window, while the taillights jut out from the fenders.

The transmission has been updated however. The out-of-date four-speed automatic was switched out in favour of a new six-speed. This makes the RAV4 feel quicker and also helps save fuel — front-wheel drive models have a combined rating of 7.7 litres/100 kilometres. The new RAV4 is well balanced on the road and on the highway, the suspension is compliant yet there is less body roll in corners.The electric steering is fairly responsive, adding to the solid feel. The general feel is quite sporty and it’s a very pleasant vehicle to drive around town. While it’s unlikely the RAV4 will spend a lot of time off-road, the available AWD system features an electronic locking centre differential, capable of splitting torque 50:50 at low speeds. You can also tailor your drive with new ECU settings. Eco mode dials back the air conditioning and throttle response, while Sport mode boosts throttle response by changing both when and how quick gear

All trim levels of the RAV4 come with a stylish two-tone interior that features a wide, softtouch dash and comfortable, well supported seats.

together and turned one of the former’s smallish Transit Connect vans into a mobile Hot Wheels racetrack, including drawers to hold all your collections, and of course touchscreens, TV screens, and unfeasibly large rims. That’s not the best part. Tucked in the press release was a little tidbit that was truly staggering. Hot Wheels claims to have passed four billion of their little cars sold. Four billion! Every kid in the world could have one — and a lot of the grown-up kids too! This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Hot Wheels company, so I sat down and did a little research. Turns out the sheer number of these things now on the planet is only half the tale. When Hot Wheels was formed in 1968, parent company Mattel was already doing well. With the Barbie line introduced a decade earlier, gender specific play was beginning to be laid out — girls played with dolls, boys with cars and action figures. Of course, these days no such rules exist, which is handy as it allows me to buy many, many toys “for my daughter.”

Sixteen models were introduced at launch, the very first being a dark blue Chevy Camaro. The construction was simple, a die-cast body with a wire axle. Tires were plastic and painted with a red circular pinstripe, and a very lowfriction type of plastic called Delrin was used as a bushing between axle and wheel. The scale was set at 1/64, and off the little cars went to the races. The main competition was the British Matchbox cars, already well established and dominant in the marketplace. However, Hot Wheels had a few things going for them. First, they were brighter than the Matchbox offerings, all lit up with Spectraflame paint. Secondly, they were based on American hot rods and customs, stuff Matchbox simply didn’t make. And lastly, they were fast, the low friction plastic making them capable of a to-scale 200 miles per hour. Their success was near instant, and it caught a few folks by surprise. Notably, the man who designed that first Camaro and 11 of the 16 first Hot Wheels quit in the first year because he See Speedy page 49

Speedy toy cars catch on fast didn’t think the company would get off the ground. Harry Bentley Bradley was that pioneer’s name, but when Hot Wheels asked him back in 1969, he’d already gone back into the full-size car industry. Happily, he recommended a man named Ira Gilford who had just left Chrysler. Gilford would go on to design some of the greatest, most iconic Hot Wheels ever made, including the two-engined Twin Mill. It was the start of something that Hot Wheels would always do best: rather than just modelling existing cars, the company would come up with wild and crazy designs, the kind a kid might spend a happy

afternoon sketching in the margins of a notepad. Hot Wheels understood the power of the imagination. It was about this time that the most expensive Hot Wheels ever made was produced. With the VW Bus a popular ’60s icon, Hot Wheels set about making a faithful reproduction. To give a little extra flair, a pair of surfboards was molded sticking out of the back window. Gnarly, but there was a problem. The Beach Bomb, as it was called, was too heavy and narrow for those orange tracks. The centre of gravity needed to be lowered by careful engineering and — wait, are we still talking about toy cars here?

The second generation of the Beach Bomb had the roof cut away to shed weight and a widened track for better on-track performance. Still rare, one of these in good condition could be worth up to $800. However, it was a version of that first prototype that holds the record. A few of these were made and given to Mattel employees. Two of those were pink, a girl’s colour on a boy’s toy, and therefore a rarity. One recently sold at auction for more than $70,000. By the mid ’70s, Hot

Wheels were still cool while the iron that Detroit was pumping out was decidedly not. Six-wheeled Gremlins, twin-engined Vee-Dubs — whatever crazy thing the designers could think up, they made. The first motorbikes arrived, and the red-striped wheels faded out. The ’80s saw the first collector conventions start up, and the introduction of regular cars as opposed to wild customs.You could buy the same sort of car your parents drove and race it against an F1 car. The first Hot Wheels

out there that can fit in a pocket yet unleash a child’s imagination. They soak up all kinds of abuse, and just keep begging for more. A kid can take one anywhere. A Hot Wheels turns the world into a racetrack, your own personal racetrack. Even if it’s just sitting on your desk, reminding you of a simpler time, it’s a special thing.

But that’s not really what’s the best part about these little cars. Collecting them isn’t what’s caused so many to be sold, nor what inspires car designers to compete to have their creation made into a Hot Wheels.

Cocktail Shake Up Anya Georgijevic

Our favourite wine bar just got a cocktail facelift, and our heads are spinning. Lauren Mote, a familiar face on the city’s mixologist scene and the co-proprietor of the exquisite bitters and extracts line, Bittered Sling, recently joined UVA as the bar manager. Mote’s innovative concoctions include the stiff-but-tasty Liberation ($15), a calvados, campari, and sherry mix that might just make your brain explode a little—in the good way. A refreshing Gin-Gin Donkey ($12) offers a bitter combination of gin, ginger wine, grapefruit, and sage. Chartreuse Milkshake ($12), a gin and chartreuse combo wins extra points for its inclusion of chocolate bits. Uva Wine Bar, 900 Seymour St., Vancouver, 604-632-9560.

The 100-Mile Shawl

Alexandra Suhner Isenberg

Hamideh Abol doesn’t go to fabric fairs or showrooms to buy fabric for her fashion collections; she visits farms, buys raw wool and felts it herself in her Vancouver studio. The result? Beautiful Simork wool shawls that work with winter coats, cosy sweaters, or over pretty cocktail dresses. They are very warm, unique, and de!nitely our new favourite alternative to fur. She’s also a bit of an artist when it comes to pattern, and her beautiful printed scarves are a great accent to a dark coloured fall wardrobe. Since we’ve not quite managed to achieve the raw, local, handmade, and crueltyfree diet, at least we’ve got a shawl that ticks all the boxes. Scarves from $100 and wool shawls start at $650 at www.shop.hamidehabol.com

The bottom line The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is a marked improvement and should reclaim more of the market than ever. Competitors Honda CR-V Honda and Toyota are eternally linked, especially since Honda launched the CR-V immediately after Toyota’s CUV.The CRV’s strength is being pretty good at everything while not excelling in any one area. The CR-V has a starting price of $25,990, making it a little more than the competition. Mazda CX-5 The CX-5 is a relative newcomer in this segment. It also was the first to feature Mazda’s Skyactiv technologies.These improve efficiency and performance making the CX-5 quite fun to drive. For $22,995, you can
