Waterfront slots part of redevelopment offer for Lot 5 BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

A gaming company is hoping for some luck

in convincing the City of NorthVancouver to overturn its ban on gambling in order to allow slot machines on a

redeveloped waterfront. Playtime Gaming, which owns seven “community gaming” facilities in B.C., is making the pitch to take the lead on redeveloping Lot 5 of the city waterfront. But, because of an 18-yearold city ban on commercial gaming, staff wouldn’t meet

with Playtime to discuss the proposal, according to Arthur Villa, the company’s co-ordinator of business development. The application Playtime would like to submit would include restaurants, boutique retail, an expansion of the Pinnacle Hotel,

underground parking, a public theatre, skating rink or water feature, and about 40-per cent green space and public areas along with an area that includes slot machines in order to make the rest of the project financially viable. “We believe our proposal

covers much of the wish list council had with respect to the Lower Lonsdale area with the added benefit of being able to make all of it economically feasible,” he told council Dec. 2. “Our proposal for Lot 5 could be

Binning House hearing underway JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

A fight about the fate ofWestVancouver’s historic Binning House is being played out in B.C. Supreme Court this week. Heritage advocates, the District of West Vancouver and the provincial government are among those seeking to stop the sale of the Binning House to the Wall Financial Group, headed up by developer Bruno Wall. The former home of artist and architect B.C. Binning is regarded as the first example of West Coast modernism. The Land Conservancy — which acquired the heritage home for protection in 2008 and has since been put under creditor protection — announced this fall it plans to sell the home for $1.6 million to help pay back $7.5 million it owes to creditors.

Van Have you seen this bear cub? W. wants Winter home awaits cub believed to be an orphan

home to be public From page 1

JULES KNOX newwsroom@nsnews.con

The suspected thief of several missing bird feeders is still at loose on the North Shore. An orphaned bear cub, first spotted in Delbrook, was last reported on Brand Street in Tempe Heights on Dec. 2, said Christine Miller, education coordinator for the North Shore Black Bear Society. “We’re so worried about him,” said Miller, adding that anybody who sees the cub should notify authorities immediately. “Everybody wants to get him safely away for the winter.” Wildlife officials are concerned that the cub could become a problem bear in the spring if he isn’t rescued soon. Angela Fontana, senior animal care supervisor at Critter Care Wildlife Society, estimates that the cub is around 11 kilograms, or the size of a cocker spaniel. “They need to be at least double his weight to hibernate, so he’d be awake all winter,” she said. “The only food source he’s likely to have is garbage, mostly from people’s backyards,” she said. During one incident, a dog spooked the cub into bolting while conservation officers were already on their way. Residents should keep dogs on a leash if they see

It’s also possible that the mother was startled by something and lost track of her cub, although this is unlikely, said Miller. “Female

bears are very good mothers, so it’s not common for that to happen. “She teaches them everything she can, what to eat, how to behave around danger, how to climb trees, all those things,” she said. A new home is waiting for the cub at Critter Care Wildlife Society in Langley, where four other bear cubs are already in hibernation. Critter Care has two bear enclosures where the cubs have limited contact with humans. “We bring in forests and branches for bedding

and find a lot of natural foods like skunk cabbage in the spring,” said Fontana. “We also give bears live trout to practise fishing. “When they’re orphaned, they don’t have their mother to show them the ropes, so we give them a safe place to grow up and encourage natural behaviours that they would usually do with mom,” she said. Food is hidden throughout the enclosure under logs or up trees to encourage the cubs to forage for it, Fontana said.

Cubs are usually released around June to the general area that they came from, but this is determined by the biologist and conservation officer, Fontana said. Any sightings should be reported to conservation officers at 1-877-952-7277. Residents are also asked to call the North Shore Black Bear Society at 604-3174911, so volunteers can be ready to help. People should not approach the cub, and dogs in the area should be kept inside.

Staff to report on socio-economic impacts From page 1 the engine that drives a large portion of the waterfront plan.” Cities that host casinos or community gaming facilities, get a 10-per cent cut of the house revenue. Community gaming facilities differ in that they only include slots and/ or bingo and have limited operating hours, according to Villa Council was skeptical of the plan but asked staff to prepare a report on the social and economic impacts other cities that have gaming experience. “I’m sure those communities are happy to

receive the 10 per cent of the revenue but what are the other cost that are related?” Coun. Don Bell asked. Villa responded that despite a boom in gaming allowed by the province since the early 2000s, only about 4.7 per cent of gamblers become “problem gamblers” and that crime remains low near Playtime’s facilities. He added that a surprisingly high number of North Shore residents are already gamblers, according to data from the B.C. Lottery Corporation. “It may interest you to know more than 50 per cent of the people on the North Shore frequently visit casinos

and gaming facilities across the water,”Villa said. Excluding Squamish First Nations land, Playtime hasn’t found any locations on the North Shore that would work as well in five years of looking, said Villa. Coun. Guy Heywood noted that there are plenty of service agencies and community groups that rely on gaming grants on the North Shore, but no gaming facilities that would make the city a contributor. But, he added, staff’s report ought to include up-to-date research based on the BCLC’s stats on addiction. “(As) to slot machines themselves as one of the

modalities of gaming, my suspicion is that they are one of the forms that has the greatest social consequences and victimization, so I would like staff to consider that as well,” he said. For Coun. Pam Bookham, the drawbacks weren’t justified, given the lack of demand for gaming on the North Shore. “In my eight years on council, I have never received an email from a taxpayer asking us to look at gaming in the City of North Vancouver.There simply is no groundswell of interest,” she said. “I would have to feel a groundswell of support from our residents to even

entertain the idea, so it’s going to be an uphill battle as far as I’m concerned.” The last time the city reviewed its ban on gaming was more than a decade ago, Coun. Craig Keating noted, and voted to keep the ban on the grounds that charity gaming shouldn’t have to compete with for-profit gaming. “I think that relationship between gaming and charities was quite different when we last discussed it 12 or 14 years ago when there was in fact private bingos in church basements we were trying to protect, and I think most of those have gone the way of the dodo,” he said.

appearing before Justice Shelley Fitzpatrick this week argued The Land Conservancy has no right to sell the house and pocket the proceeds. Among those was the District of West Vancouver’s lawyer Francesca Marzari who told the judge the municipality has a longstanding involvement in the preservation of the Binning House for the community and wants to see the heritage home remain accessible to the public. The district has been in discussions with the West Coast Modern League, a group of heritage advocates headed by Binning scholar Adele Weder, about partnering with the municipality to manage the house for public benefit, said Marzari. If The Land Conservancy can no longer maintain the property, “the district has indicated it is prepared to step in with another society,” she said. Also on hand to oppose the sale was lawyer Richard Butler, representing the provincial Attorney General. The province is opposing the sale on the grounds it would contravene B.C.’s Charitable Purposes Preservation Act — intended to make sure assets donated for specific charitable purposes not be sold off. The province has argued the Binning House should only be sold or transferred to an organization willing to take on its management for specific charitable purposes. In court Monday, the lawyer for The Land Conservancy made it clear public access is not on offer from its prospective buyer, Wall Financial. John Sandrelli told the judge Bruno Wall is knowledgeable about the historic significance of the house and has the money to make needed structural repairs. “Mr.Wall is the perfect person to deal with a very difficult situation,” he said. But he added Wall has made it clear he wants free title to the property — without any legal obligations for public access. Sandrelli said The Land Conservancy is sympathetic to those who don’t want the house sold, but said the nonprofit has no other option. See UBC page 9

Youth wins Medal of Bravery WV student stops knife attack, plugs victim’s wound ANNE WATSON awatson@nsnews.com

A young West Vancouver man who came to the aid of his friend three years ago has received one of the highest decorations of bravery in Canada. Yale Henry, 20, a West Vancouver secondary school graduate, saved his friend from a knife attack on Oct. 29, 2010. Henry was awarded the Medal

of Bravery on Dec. 5 at a ceremony at Rideau Hall in Ottawa. “I was in disbelief,” said Henry, of the award. “It was fairly surreal, I didn’t expect something like that would happen to me.” Henry and his friend were on the school’s campus around 11 a.m. when the attack occurred. “From what I know there was tension building up between my friend and the attacker, and all of us thought it was just going to be a fight,” he said. “My friend wanted me down there just in case something happened, I don’t want to say intimidate him, but just kind of see if we could

sort out a more peaceful resolution. But as soon as we got down there, the guy started attacking my friend, we didn’t have any time to talk.” Henry said that at first he thought the attacker was stabbing his friend with a pen. “I finally realized it was a knife and I dove in there and I wrapped my arms around the guy’s arms and torso, picked him up and pulled him away,” said Henry. “I didn’t let go until he dropped the knife.” The attacker fled the scene and was later picked up by police. Meanwhile Henry’s friend lay on the ground bleeding.

Dogs on ice can be a problem BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

They don’t make crampons for dogs. North Shore Rescue is asking residents to be extra cautious when going for a hike on icy trails after having to help a woman and dog out of a creek drainage Tuesday. A man and woman were walking their neighbour’s dog on the Baden Powell Trail in the late afternoon when the dog ventured off the trail. “The Baden Powell was

just an ice rink,” said Tim Jones, NSR team leader. “The dog went down into the (Mackay Creek) drainage and couldn’t get back up.” The woman followed the dog in and became stuck herself, while the man went for help. “We went in. Everybody had to be in micro-spike crampons. We put her in them too to get her out,” Jones said. While everyone was home in time for the evening news, the incident does prompt a couple ® ®

safety warnings. “We really want people to wear proper micro-spike type crampons,” Jones said. “If you are hiking, you should be hiking lower elevations or hiking areas that don’t have ridge systems and ice conditions like are present right now.” It’s also not the best time of year for taking dogs into the backcountry. “Animals can get into real trouble too and if you have a leash, the dog can pull you and seriously hurt you,” he added.

“I still remember this, he said ‘I think I got nicked,’ turns around and his whole shirt was drenched in blood,” said Henry. “So I got him to rip off his shirt, his jacket and started putting pressure on the wound that was bleeding the most, which turned out to be a sucking chest wound.” His friend’s lung had been punctured and as a result of Henry

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.

Private mail call T he fundamental weakness of Crown corporations is that they do not have to compete in the real world. That should be their strength, of course. But that’s hard to reconcile when, for instance, B.C. Ferries increases prices to the point that passenger-use declines and then uses revenue figures to justify service cuts. Canada Post, in its monopolistic wisdom, has taken the opposite tack. In an announcement suspiciously timed to the day after Parliament began its Christmas break, the postal corp told Canadians Wednesday that declining demand requires higher — much higher — prices. For good measure they are planning less service too. Perhaps the planners, we use the term generously, figure Canadians are inured to declining mail service: the end of Saturday deliveries, next-day delivery becoming the

MAILBOX

day-after-next delivery, the demise of rural route delivery. After all, we have accepted less while paying more for so many years, why wouldn’t we continue to do the same? Nobody seems to care that Canada Post enjoys the protection of legislation that prevents any courier company or rival service from delivering a letter for less than three times the cost of a stamp — that will cost $1 at the end of March. Despite this level of protection, Canada Post was on track to lose $243 million this year, until it sold its downtown Vancouver sorting plant.The Conference Board of Canada put Canada Post’s projected losses by 2020 at $1 billion a year. With this level of demonstrated incompetence, taxpayers should question whether the plan to extinguish all home deliveries within three years will stem the bleeding. In the Internet age, might it cost less to just privatize mail delivery?

North Shore needs a mobile psych outreach team Dear Editor: Jane Seyd’s two-part Sunday Focus series, The Bridge’s Long Shadow and The Bridge’s Heavy Burden (Dec. 1 and 8, North Shore News) is a crucial call-to-action for the installation of high barriers or netting on the Lions Gate Bridge to help prevent suicide. But out of this arises another serious issue — the need, as a society, to address mental illness and to be proactive in getting people who are ill into treatment as early as possible. While a physical barrier on the bridge may prevent or stop someone’s fall, it does not treat the underlying causes of the person’s suicidal ideation, which brought them there in the first place.

Suicide, by its very nature, is unpredictable. The only way to properly address the high rate of suicide among those with mental illness is to adequately treat the underlying illness itself. Those with a severe mental illness who are decompensating or experiencing psychosis must first be treated in hospital in order to stabilize. Unfortunately, half of those with schizophrenia and a slightly lesser percentage of those who are bipolar 1 lack insight into their illness, a clinical feature called anosognosia, and don’t realize they are ill. Because of this, they are unlikely to seek treatment themselves. In these cases, involuntary

CONTACTUS

admission is required. Many people, including some mental health professionals, mistakenly believe an ill person must be considered “dangerous” to be admitted involuntarily into hospital, but this is not the case. The criterion for involuntary admission, under the B.C. Mental Health Act, is “to prevent the person’s substantial mental or physical deterioration or for the person’s own protection or protection of others.” This provision allows for a proactive use of involuntary admission, where appropriate, which can help prevent tragedies such as suicide. The need to get people into treatment when they’re ill, rather than

guessing whether they’re going to commit suicide or not, mustn’t be forgotten. Another measure is also important. Many communities have a mobile, urgent-outreach team in place that travels directly to where the ill person is living to do a preliminary assessment and, where it makes

sense, call in a psychiatrist who can then sign a first certificate. This gets the person into hospital. A family living in Vancouver, Richmond, or Surrey, dealing with someone in crisis, has this option. However, the North Shore currently does not offer any form of urgent outreach. This, too, has

long been a concern for us. If anyone would like more information on these issues, or if you are a family member needing help, please call our Family Support Centre at 604-926-0856. Cheryl Zipper, president, North Shore Schizophrenia Society

Some gifts mean more at Christmas Dear Editor: I walked briskly along Lonsdale Avenue last Friday evening (Dec. 6), warmly bundled up as the temperature had fallen several degrees below zero. As I entered London Drugs, a middle-aged woman — clearly

shuddering in the frigid cold — was collecting for the Salvation Army. Her bell resonated in the glacial winter air. An elderly couple approached this saintly volunteer and inquired if she was warm enough. She responded that she had given her only winter

jacket to a destitute man on the street that afternoon. If we are searching for meaning in the Christmas season, we need look no further than the Salvation Army. Yes, there are angels. Barrie Street North Vancouver

Will TransLink survive Metro infighting? Is TransLink nearing the breaking point? It’s a question worth posing as frustrations expressed by a number of mayors and councils over transit and transportation priorities continue to mount and boil over for public display. TransLink has been unable to solve a riddle it has been wrestling with for some time now: How to meet escalating service demands without creating unpopular or unacceptable revenue streams to pay for them. As a result, municipalities are finding themselves pitted against each other when it comes to determining what particular project gets the green light over others. The situation has been building for some time, but three recent developments show how bad things have become. First was Premier Christy Clark’s arbitrary decision that a new bridge would replace the George Massey Tunnel, and that construction would begin soon. The announcement was met with opposition from a number of mayors, but it also was backed by others, notably Delta’s mayor, Lois Jackson. One of the critics of the Massey Bridge, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, continues to insist a rapid transit line down Broadway to UBC is the most

View from the Ledge

pressing priority, but the chance of that being built anytime soon evaporated when the B.C. Liberals won re-election while the voters along that transit line voted for the NDP. Then there was Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts’ announcement that her municipality would essentially bypass TransLink and the provincial government and approach Ottawa on its own, asking for $1.8 billion in funding to build three light rail lines across the city. Watts has been pushing for some kind of light rail service in her municipality for quite some time, only to be ignored time and time again by her mayoral colleagues. Of course, it remains a long-shot for the federal government to fork this kind of cash over to a municipality (Surrey is not in Quebec, after all), but

Watts’ actions seems to be a stunning example of the frustration some mayors have with TransLink’s planning process. Finally, New Westminster council is now balking at Surrey’s desire for a six-lane bridge to replace the Pattullo Bridge, arguing its street network could not handle the extra flow of traffic such a bridge would bring. This kind of infighting and going-it-alone action is occurring while an unprecedented referendum on how to fund transit in Metro Vancouver draws ever closer. The premier says the referendum is partly designed to ensure mayors make their own positions on funding known, so they can be held accountable. But the way things are going, who knows whether the current TransLink model can function long enough to make it to the fall of 2014, when the referendum will be held. Union deal telling Don’t underestimate the significance of those unprecedented five-year contracts reached between the provincial government and the B.C. Government Employees Union. The BCGEU master agreement often serves as the template for other public sector union contracts, so it’s a good

bet other unions will sign similar contracts in the months ahead. Interestingly, the BCGEU signed a new deal well ahead of the March termination date of the current one, and others may opt to sign early as well. The BCGEU also bought into the government’s idea of tying bonus wage hikes to economic growth. Public sector unions have long been accused of thinking economic growth had nothing to do with the compensation coming from government, so this

is a philosophical shift of sorts. The one exception when it comes to other unions following this kind of contract is, of course, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. The BCTF considers itself a social justice movement, and not a trade union, so expecting it to grasp the linkage between economic growth and wage increases for its members is perhaps unrealistic. In political terms, however, the BCGEU deal speaks volumes. Signing a five-year deal suggests the union realizes it backed the wrong horse in the last

election and it had better work with the one that won. The new contract lasts until after the next election as well. The BCGEU seems to have bet on the outcome of that contest already, and the bet has not been placed on the party it has traditionally backed. That tells you all you need to know about where the NDP is at these days, and how the party is viewed by its own allies.

UBC wants proceeds if house sold From page 3 The conservancy only has enough cash to last until mid-January, he said. “There are people asking for money. It has no alternative but to move forward with this sale.” Lawyers for the University of British Columbia told the judge Monday if the house is

INQUIRING REPORTER Canada Post announced that over the next five years, the remaining one-third of households receiving home delivery will be converted to community mailboxes. The postal service has suffered from significant financial losses as the volume of regular lettermail has decreased because of electronic communications. The price of individual stamps will be increased to a dollar, and up to 8,000 jobs will be eliminated. Will you miss the home delivery of your mail? Have your say at nsnews.com ? C"HN% BF+O

One District of North Vancouver couple may have to come up with $200,000 to secure the slopes on two Merlynn Crescent homes following a unanimous vote by council Monday.

The slope needs immediate attention as a landslide could block Carmaria Court and affect nine homes, according to a staff report. If the slope isn’t stable by April 30, 2014, the district could complete the work at the homeowner’s expense.

What was the origin of the North Shore News?

Speaking on behalf of the homeowners, Edward Bickford said Mostafa Madaninejad and Fatemeh Khosravi-Amiri are an elderly couple living on fixed incomes. “They bought this place, they didn’t do anything to it, and now they could be on the hook for two hundred grand,” he said. After buying the homes in 1997, no significant changes were made to the building or landscaping, according to Bickford. “It doesn’t seem right to my way of thinking that the district doesn’t take responsibility for initially approving construction,” he said. The district asked that a tarp be put over the area to prevent further erosion. However, the homeowner refused to allow the stopgap measure See Slope page 11

after being asked to sign a waiver that indemnified the district from past and future erosion or slope stability issues, Bickford said. The district has allowed the homeowner to truck fill to a municipal site, according to engineering manager Gavin Joyce. Joyce stressed the urgency of remediation. “This is a deteriorating condition,” he said. “It’s simply a matter of time on this slope.” Because it’s a public safety issue, council is obligated to make an unpleasant decision, according to Coun. Roger Bassam. Couns. Mike Little and Doug MacKay-Dunn did not attend the meeting. Madaninejad is currently seeking legal counsel. The situation is similar to the quandary faced by Peter Twist earlier this year. The district resident was ordered to demolish his garage and remediate a badly eroded slope — despite 95 per cent of the eroded area falling on district land. The district knew about the condition of the land for 30 years, according to Twist. Twist promised to seek a lawyer following council’s decision in July. CITY COUNCIL:

Seniors in North Vancouver can expect better programs at the Silver Harbour Seniors’ Activity Centre because of a $20,000 age-friendly grant from the provincial government. The community centre doesn’t currently know how most of the money will be spent, but the goal is to reach socially-isolated seniors, said Annwen Loverin, executive director of Silver Harbour Seniors’ Activity Centre. “We’re actually going back out into the community to do some consultation about how the project should shape,” she said. The community centre’s current programming largely focuses on active, independent seniors. Seniors with more connections to communitybased programming are more likely to have better mental and physical health, said Loverin. The money is for innovative programming, not ongoing funding, she said. Twenty-six communities throughout the province received funding. — Jules Knox

Grant Lawrence confronts his demons on ice

A sporting life ■ Grant Lawrence reads from The Lonely End of the Rink: Confessions of a Reluctant Goalie at West Vancouver Memorial Library, Sunday, Dec. 15 at 2:30 p.m. For more information visit westvanlibrary.ca. JEREMY SHEPHERD jshepherd@nsnews.com

McFadden had shoulders like cinder blocks back then. Back then, he rolled around in a Chevy Nova with holes punched in the muffler. He’s forgotten the goalie, but the goalie remembers everything. Standing across from each other on a mountaintop ice rink near Penticton, the goalie’s mind snaps back two decades. It’s an old memory, but the years haven’t sapped its potency. Grant Lawrence is back in West Vancouver again, walking to a high school party in the winter rain again. He hears the Nova’s

greasy rumble.The tires screech to a stop. “Where are you headed, hippie?” The muscular skinhead hockey player climbs out of the car.When McFadden climbs back inside, Lawrence is doubled up on the side of the road, beat up and robbed of three Coors Light Silver Bullets he’d stolen from home. Maybe he would’ve turned around and headed home, forgotten the party. But there was a girl. Sheena was a rocker in a Tiger Williams jersey, and she would be there.

If Lawrence hadn’t been the leader singer of The Smugglers, she wouldn’t “have even exhaled smoke in my direction.” But he was the lead singer. And she would be there. He got up and went to the party. “Roadhouse Blues” by The Doors was playing as he looked for her. Sheena was in the basement, lit by the soft glow of the O’Keefe’s Extra Old Stock wall lamp. Angus “The Anvil” McFadden was on top of her. And then the memory

is gone, blotted out by the right now. McFadden is charging. Steam pours from his flaring nostrils into the dry mountain air. Trying his best to be Grant Fuhr, Lawrence leaves his crease to challenge. McFadden shoots. Lawrence stretches. “Every joint, muscle and tendon in my body felt like it was being elongated by a medieval torture device,” he writes. The puck grazes the tip of his middle finger, deflecting harmlessly over the crossbar. See CBC page 18

Come one, come all. June Morris, General Manager The Summerhill Retirement Residence

When aging adults are considering moving into an independent retirement community, they may fear the unknown. They may also have undergone some loss. So most find it extremely comforting and a happy discovery when they witness the great blend of independence and social interaction offered at an independent retirement residence. Forget the ‘old folks nursing home’ stereotype of yesteryear. Instead, there is a welcoming resort-like atmosphere in which residents feel proud to host their family and friends. Entertaining becomes a joy again, because the shopping, cleaning, cooking and dishes are all handled. Everyone is welcome, the mantra is typically ‘come one, come all’ extending right down to the greatgrandchildren. Even if it’s not your extended family visiting, the energy and vitality that children bring to a residence is

infectious and uplifting. Socializing with peers makes loneliness a thing of the past. There are always other residents close at hand to connect with for a chat, a walk, a group activity or excursion. A good choice is a residence where you feel like you are living in an apartment; in control of your own life and choices. Plus, look for a residence that is animal-friendly so “Mitzy” can move in with you and where you feel like the move is a big step foward. Connecting with those you want to spend time with really can be easier than ever. Questions about independent living?

The Royal Oui playing local shows

Duo combine forces to go on new sonic adventures ■ The Royal Oui: Thursday, Dec. 19 at Vancouver’s Electric Owl; Friday, Dec. 20 at Squamish’s Howe Sound Inn and Brewery; and Saturday, Dec. 21 at Vancouver’s Prophouse Café. theroyaloui.com ERIN MCPHEE emcphee@nsnews.com

After years of collaborating on each other’s respective solo projects, married musicians Adrienne Pierce and Ari Shine decided to officially join forces as a duo this fall. All they needed was a name. In an interesting twist of fate, around the same time the couple met back in 2005, Pierce had registered the domain name The Royal Oui. “I thought if I ever had a side project I’m going to call it The Royal Oui, but I thought maybe it would be more like each song would be with someone different and that I would have collaborators on each song,” she says. “But in

the end when we had this project, we threw some names around and one day we were just driving from show to show and we just looked at each other and said, ‘This should be The Royal Oui.’” Pierce and Shine made their band’s live premiere at Vancouver’s Biltmore Cabaret in October and have been on the road ever since. They’re set to take the stage locally once again for three shows next week, starting with Thursday, Dec. 19 at Vancouver’s Electric Owl. The concert, A Nimbus Family Christmas, is also featuring Dominique Fricot and Field Study Music. Doors are at 7 p.m. and proceeds will support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. The next day, the couple will head up to Squamish for a show Friday, Dec. 20 at the Howe Sound Inn and Brewery. Finally, the duo has organized The Royal Oui and Friends Holiday Benefit Concert, likewise in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank,

Saturday, Dec. 21 at the Prophouse Café at 1636 Venables St. in Vancouver. Other artists lending support to the cause include Rykka, T. Nile, Nat Jay, Hilary Grist and Christa Couture. In recent years Pierce and Shine have called Los Angeles and New York home, though they’ve been based in Vancouver since March. “I know it goes through ebbs and flows, but I think in the last certainly few years with Hannah Georgas and Dan Mangan and Said The Whale, I feel like there’s a national eye on Vancouver. I feel like some of the bands in town are amongst the best, which is really encouraging. There’s all kinds of good bands. It’s inspiring for us really. It’s a nice community for us to be a part of,” says Shine, reached Tuesday en route from California (where The Royal Oui had just played shows in Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco) to Oregon, where they were scheduled to play in Eugene that evening. It’s “wonderful” to be

able to make music with his wife, says Shine. “It’s one of the easiest things that we do,” he says. “We create together all the time. . . . It’s a very natural part of our relationship. Our relationship grew out of our songwriting and our creative direction.” Pierce, a West Vancouver native who grew up in Horseshoe Bay and graduated from Hillside secondary, met Shine, a California native from the Palo Alto area, during a trip to Los Angeles to do some recording for an album. “I went into the studio to record drums and Ari was there,” she says. Shine’s friend was drumming on Pierce’s record and he just happened to be at the studio that day, doing some writing with some other artists. “That’s how we met,” says Pierce. “We just started chatting and he knew all about Canada and Canadian bands and he loves Canadian music and See Duo page 18

Duo planning album release in 2014 From page 16 everything Canadian.” They kept in touch and two years later wrote a song together, then went on tour together, and wed in 2008. From their first song, “Nightswimming,” which went on to appear on Pierce’s 2010 release Oh Deer, the couple has continued to collaborate. Shine co-produced and played many of the instruments on Oh Deer, he and Pierce joined forces for her latest solo effort, My Heavens, released in February, and Pierce contributed to Shine’s most recent solo album, 2012’s Songs Of Solomon. Based on their professional relationship, they often joked they were “an undercover duo”

and would hear time and time again from friends who suggested they were essentially already a band. When they realized their songwriting had shifted — “We started writing a lot of songs that weren’t really an Adrienne song and not really an Ari song,” says Pierce — their new direction became clear. “It just took on a life of its own and we realized it was something different and we decided to just go with it and see what happened. We’ve been loving doing it. It’s just really fun to do this together and not have it be either of our projects, but something that we’re both really invested in,” says Pierce. They released their debut two-song EP, Forecast, at their show at

the Biltmore earlier this fall. They plan to release an eponymous The Royal Oui LP in February 2014, featuring 11 tracks, coproduced by them, and released on File Under: Music. “I feel like Ari’s stuff tends to be a little more Americana, a little more rock sometimes,” says Pierce. “And mine is a little, like, arty, weirder pop, alternative.” Since their band’s launch their sound has been described as “psychedelic folk” or “ambient folk,” she says. Despite their hefty respective back catalogues, they’re focusing on their new Royal Oui songs only on their current tour and have been performing as just the two of them. “That’s something that really works for us,” says

Pierce. “We like to say ‘we’re nimble.’ We can just throw our guitars in the car — sometimes we bring our dog — and just go.” That said, they make a concerted effort to fill out the sound. Shine references their “sonic adventurousness,” which Pierce explains sees them harmonize and sing together on every song with neither ever taking the lead. They both play acoustic guitars, and make use of keyboards, percussive loops and other effects. In addition, Shine says they offer a certain degree of “eye candy” at their shows, projecting visuals onto themselves and behind them. “We’re just trying to create this whole little world on stage,” says Pierce.

No goal. The mountaintop encounter is one of the stories in Lawrence’s funny and poignant memoir, The Lonely End of the Rink: Confessions of a Reluctant Goalie. “He had no idea who I was, no idea how momentous that penalty shot was to me, I made no mention of it in the handshake line at the end of the game, but it was one of the greatest sporting moments of my life,” Lawrence says. ••• A booming bodycheck against the boards, the crack of a stick on the ice, the slicing sound of speeding skates and the ping of a puck hitting the post — the sound that strikes a goalie’s ears like sweet music— have cast their spell on Lawrence. But while the CBC host often loved hockey, he has feared, hated and reviled many hockey players. As a baby he was held in the soft hands of Bobby Orr. As a child he was tormented by Buck, a hockey playing thug with an Olympian build and a Joey Lawrence bob who used the word ‘wimp’ with the frequency Australians use ‘mate.’ Lawrence needed a brace to steady a knee that was prone to dislocation. His stomach was jittery and prone to puking and the “uber geek” wore an E.T. sweatshirt and glasses of Elton Johnian proportions. He was a target, and over and over again, the people who made him feel small, the ones who made the school locker room feel like Lord of the Flies without the tropical climate, were hockey players. “I’m not looking for any sympathy, I’m mostly looking just to entertain people and maybe show them a darker side of our great, glorious, Canadian pastime,” Lawrence explains. “There is a side where maybe the star athletes aren’t the greatest heroes of all time.” Despite the “Shakespearean irony” of hiding behind his goalie mask, Lawrence has come face to face with many childhood bullies on the ice. “I clearly carry the

baggage of those younger times more than they do. They don’t remember anything of that time, and nor do I bring it up with them,” he explains. “That I stop their shots . . . brings me deep, deep, deep satisfaction to the point of joyously celebrating after the game if we’ve beaten them.” The Lonely End of the Rink is about resilience. Just like a meat//bone/skinhead didn’t keep Lawrence from the party, hockey players couldn’t keep him from hockey. Despite associating the game with personal ridicule and embarrassment and violence, hockey is inescapable for Lawrence. In one of the book’s more horrifying chapters, a hockey player named Psycho Powers arms himself with Lawrence’s BB gun and starts shooting. Lawrence runs off a cliff while trying to escape. “I could have easily been killed,” he says. “When I actually sat down to write it, I did kind of get a chill up my spine.” The future author made it home, semi-conscious and covered in blood. When it came time for knee surgery, the doctor was Stu McNeill, formerly a centre with the Detroit Red Wings. The final third of the book covers Lawrence’s beer league hockey team, the Flying Vees. “‘If someone tapped me on the shoulder at age 13 — probably one of the lowest points of my entire life — and said, ‘Hey, you’re going to be playing hockey when you’re 30 as a goalie with a bunch of musicians on a hockey team,’ I would turn around and probably burst into tears.” As an adult, Lawrence’s butterfly goaltending style is likened to both a wounded moth and a guy who just fell out of his wheelchair. But for the first time in his life, it’s meant in fun. “I started out in life liking hockey but I got pushed away from it,” Lawrence explains. “I think the takeaway is even if you’ve missed out on things earlier in life, go back to those things . . . . Just make sure that you’re doing it on your own terms.” See Lawrence page 39

Kaario says the concert will open with a Bach orchestral composition that he describes as a “high energy, positive piece,” then move into a Christmas Oratorio, of which Bach composed six cantatas, one for each Sunday around Christmas. The choir will also be singing Monteverdi Magnificat. “(It’s) very good for the season,” says Kaario of the piece. Kaario has also included “Winter” from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons that will be performed by solo violinist Nancy Di Novo from North Vancouver. “She has always had a great love for Baroque music,” says Kaario, adding that Di Novo has been a member of both the Boston and Toronto Symphony Orchestras. Kaario says that one of the choir’s mandates is to be celebratory, positive and optimistic but also for their concerts to be engaging for the audience. See Laudate page 40

Family photo tips TERRY PETERS, tpeters@nsnews.com

CHD(D* @CB. !2B.-C.A/

t’s an annual ritual. The whole family is gathered together and someone decrees its time for the group photo. As the gathered relations make their way over to the tree a mostwanted style lineup takes place, and as soon as the flash signals goes off there is an immediate dispersal. Like trying to return a broken toy after Christmas, there is no guarantee of great photos, but you can do a lot to improve your odds. If you must have a big group photo try to set it up as soon as possible. Get everyone while they’re fresh and before they get involved in other things, like eating. If you are the designated photographer have the location of the photo picked out, and if necessary move any furniture (such as chairs, etc.) out of the way ahead of time. Grab a chair to stand on. Making yourself taller than the group will do a couple of things. First, it is easier to get everyone’s attention and have them all looking at the camera if they can all see you clearly. If they are looking up it will generally be a more flattering angle, definitely a better one than if they are looking down at a shorter photographer. Since it is likely that you are using a flash, the shadow that it will cast will be less

noticeable if the camera is positioned higher than the subjects. Keep talking. You need to command the attention of the group so keep talking and keep their attention. Take as many photos as you can in that short time period. Chances are the first one won’t be the best so improve your chances by taking several photos. Then you can start to have some fun with the photos and take some candid shots. These will have a higher success rate and will show the connection between the subjects as family and friends interact casually. If there is sufficient light available try turning the flash off as this will likely make it possible to get several photos before anyone becomes self-conscious. Terry Peters is a longtime North Shore News photographer, as well as the managing editor.

CHRISTMAS DESIGN:CALENDARS & ORNAMENTS JANINE WILSON contributing writer

Advent Calendars Advent calendars are making a resurgence after a brief respite in past years. In the last several years in particular, they’ve become very popular and greatly commercialized (even coffee chains are carrying them). Take a brief interlude onto Pinterest and you’ll be overwhelmed with DIY advent calendar options. Not only are people doing them for Christmas but they’re popping up for all sorts of holidays. A unique type of calendar is one that can be personalized with your favourite colour scheme using paint, paper, modge podge and a little string, whatever strikes your fancy and inspires you. Calendars made of wood or other materials that can be personalized are also great for kids who can add their touch with markers, paint and glitter. Rather than being filled with chocolate, some advent calendars offer space for adding your own gifts in little drawers or bags. These can be filled with small toys,

bite-sized treats or other small gifts. I really like the idea of filling these bags with games, particularly vintage games like marbles, jacks, dice, chalk, etc. You can then use these items to reconnect with your kids doing something fun for both of you. Another idea (if you know a budding chef), is to put fancy ingredients in the boxes or bags and use those to create fanciful dishes. You could also fill the advent calendars with little coupons of activities to do with your family, such as a trip to a favourite park, or hopscotch and blanket forts with your kids. There are a lots of ideas about how to use advent calendars that don’t have to be based on “stuff.” The point is that it doesn’t have to be complicated or costly. It can be a fun and easy way to start sweet traditions with your family. Ornaments The days of the themed holiday tree seem to (finally) be past and more people seem to want to collect a few ornaments a year and create a tradition and history with their ornaments.

My sister and I both have the ornaments our mom made for our tree when we were little (we grew up in a place with little access to retail selections and money was tight) and now we cherish those handmade ornaments. As we get older, we’re using the same ornaments again and receiving a few more each year. We really cherish preserving the memories that come with them. These days, many ornaments reflect the local heritage and culture from which they come, and they can be highly collectible. Some are made using recycled fabric, so they’re eco-friendly too.

These ornaments can be customized by adding a year or name in hand-stitching or glue-on letters/numbers to personalize. And (I’ll let you in on a designer’s secret) just because you buy something that can be used “as is” doesn’t mean you can’t make it yours by customizing it This is a great way to have something different than everyone else and gives you that DIY satisfaction without having to create something from scratch.

12 Years a Slave stands out from crowd JULIE CRAWFORD ContributingWriter

It’s admittedly a little rash to do a top10 films list before the end of the year: how can I pick favourites without having seen the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis?The star-studded Osage:August County? Or Anchorman 2?With a deadline looming, and apologies to Ron Burgundy, here are the best movies of most of 2013. 1. 12Years A Slave A harrowing story based on the 1853 autobiography of Solomon Northup (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free man who was kidnapped and sold into slavery. Steve McQueen’s film stands out among others in the genre because of the way the director marries the constant fear with the endless tedium of slavery.The days are hot and long: torturous if you’re working cane or cotton; repetitious to the point of madness if you’re the master’s wife (Sarah Paulson). Lupita Nyong’o, Paul Giamatti, Paul Dano

and Benedict Cumberbatch are excellent. And McQueen regular Michael Fassbender is so convincing as “slavebreaker” Edwin Epps that he may never get a decent restaurant table again. Powerful, memorable film. 2. Gravity I hate space movies and underwater movies.They make me feel seasick. Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, then, with its no-fixed-point-on-thehorizon plummets through blackness and low-oxygen dizzy spells, was a challenge. But the filmmaking is simply spectacular, a wonder, and I was transfixed. Sandra Bullock is required to convey heartbreak, regret, panic, primal fear and resolve from inside the close confines of See Disembodied page 33

Early electronic instrument added to the mix

Clara Venice solves the theremin on Love Riddle ■ Clara Venice opening for the Barenaked Ladies, Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Jan. 17, 2014. NICHOLAS M. PESCOD ContributingWriter

The first time singer/ songwriter ClaraVenice laid eyes on a theremin she knew she had to have one. “I first saw the Theremin with this band and as soon as I saw it I knew that I could play it but I had no idea what it was,” she says. The next day Venice wandered down to the Moog store in Toronto and asked the staff if she could try one. “I remember all the guys started laughing at me because this is the most unintuitive instrument ever,” she says.

“They put me in the middle of the store and I had to play it in front of people in the store.” To the entire store’s disbelief, Venice was able to play a scale. “They were shocked,” she says. “They gave it to me for a discount and I carried it home.” Russian inventor Léon Theremin invented the theremin in the early 1900s. The instrument is controlled by the musician without any physical contact and has been used in a variety of musical contexts. Composers Miklós Rózsa and Bernard Herrmann used the theremin in several film scores and Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones used the instrument on the group’s 1967 albums Between the Buttons and Their Satanic Majesties Request.

“It sounds different and I think it is an amazing instrument that is very versatile, but people aren’t necessarily aware of it,” Venice says. “There was a time when it was used in pop music but it hasn’t been for a long time and I’m hoping to bring it back.” In October Venice released her debut EP, Love Riddle, which includes sounds from her theremin. The self-described space-pop singer says the songs have a romantic vibe. “It’s a little love story of people meeting and then something horrible happening and then them coming back together,” she says. “There is a happy ending because I’m a romantic at heart.” Instead of releasing physical copies Venice came up with a creative idea to distribute and

sell Love Riddle. “I didn’t want to make a CD so I had this idea to make a USB key that would contain the album that you could wear. It would be something that you would want to buy as opposed to something that you have to buy and never look at again,” Venice says. “I think that at this point people are really craving a tangible relationship with music now (rather than) something invisible that you download.” Love Riddle can be worn as a necklace, key chain, dog tag, earring, and comes in multiple colours. “I wanted to do something new and different that really hasn’t been done and to inspire people or challenge people to see that there are different See Venice page 39

Personal story takes us on a wild ride TERRY PETERS tpeters@nsnews.com

1. Wild by Cheryl Strayed, Vintage, $18.95, 315 pages. With little preparation for an 1,100-mile hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, Cheryl Strayed sought a fresh start for a life that was stumbling out of control. Her experiences on the trail are a fascinating look at what it means to take on such a physical challenge but her personal story makes this far more than an outdoor adventure book. We are allowed to slip inside a troubled soul and witness the healing power of nature and time as the transformation gradually guides her to a better understanding of herself. 2. The Art of Clean Up by Ursus Wehrli, Chronicle Books, 48 pages, $16.95 With the help of photographers Geri Born and Daniel Spehr, Ursus Wehrli presents us with his vision of how to make

the physical world more organized. By taking the common and by reorganizing them into their individual parts Wehrli turns them into uncommon works of art. An ideal book for that particularly anal person you know. 3. Captain Paul Watson by Lamya Essemlali with Paul Watson, Firefly Books, 264 pages, $24.95 As a central figure in the ongoing fight to protect the oceans, Paul Watson has been an activist for most of his life. He was just eighteen when he helped co-found Greenpeace, and in his mid-twenties when he left that organization and created the Sea Shepherd Conservation

Society. Presented as an extended interview, the book delves into a variety of topics revolving around Watson’s philosophy and his actions. Watson makes it very clear that the status quo cannot continue and the over fishing of the oceans will bring catastrophic results to the planet. In very simple terms he states, “If the oceans die, we die”. 4. The Masters of Nature Photography, edited by Rosamund Kidman Cox, Firefly Books, 224 pages, $45.00 Ten brilliant photographers open their portfolios and share their best work in this incredible collection. From a lone wolf standing atop a mountain peak to the grace of a stingray gliding above the ocean floor there is no place these photographers won’t go in search of that perfect image. Each photographer provides a detailed description for every image that tells how the picture was taken. Their comments tell us not just

Paris Sketchbook by Jason Brooks, Laurence King Publishers, 160 pages, $28.95 From the keen eye and deft pen of fashion illustrator Jason Brooks comes this delightful view of Paris. Combining drawings from several trips to the City of Light he has created a book that is part tour guide, part journal and all art. Brooks applies his fashion sense to everyday scenes and brings a lively twist to each drawing. 6.

103,000 km through 45 countries. Jupiter’s Travels was published in 1980 with a small selection of photographs included but there were many more photos available. With each photo or series of images Simon has provided a description that connects to the subject but also to what he was feeling about the journey. These insights make for great reading and further illustrate the aspects of travel that have changed over the past 40 years. 7. Christopher Pratt: Six Decades by Tom Smart, Firefly Books, 176 pages, $60.00 This beautifully reproduced retrospective looks at Christopher Pratt’s entire career. Pratt is a master of the empty space and within it provides the viewer the chance for their own subconscious to bring forth an emotional response to the well-ordered image. Tom Smart chronicles

studies on genetically engineered foods and forms a connection with the scientist’s daughter. It isn’t long before they are both in danger and on the run. Lawrence Verigin has crafted a fast-paced story that is as fresh as today’s headlines. His premise of genetically modified organisms being manipulated for corporate greed is entirely believable and a warning of what is already going on in our food production.

Disembodied Her surprisingly touching

Tis the Season!

From page 29 a space suit, and she does so brilliantly.Who knew a film about two people floating in space (George Clooney also stars) could be so riveting? 3. Her We’re really not that far away from the near-future scenario outlined by Spike Jonze in Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix asTheodoreTwombly, a man who falls in love with the voice on his new operating system. (Granted, the voice is Scarlett Johansson.) Twombly still hasn’t signed his divorce papers and dives into his work, writing heartfelt letters on behalf of other people. He and Samantha (Johansson, creating a fully fleshed-out character with only a voice) face all the growing pains of a traditional couple: jealousy, one person outgrowing the other, dwindling sex drive. It’s surprisingly touching, this love story, and says much about our dependence on technology and our need to connect with somebody despite it all. 4. Before Midnight Collaborators Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater have been bringing the love story of Jesse and Celine to life for some 18 years, with lengthy breaks in between.The couple, now in their 40s, is finally together but the honeymoon is finis.This third film is every bit as talky as the first two: challenging in an age of sound bites and tweets. But the payoff of the too-true love and life tale is worth the effort, and I can’t wait to see what Jesse and Celine do in their golden years. 5. Mud Appearing twice on this list is Matthew McConaughey, forcing his detractors to clam up once and for all. Jeff Nichols trawls his Arkansas boyhood to impart the story of two boys who take a boat out to a “deserted” island, where they find a boat in a tree and a criminal (McConaughey) hiding out, waiting for his girl (Reese Witherspoon).The film flows quietly and steadily, at times a love story, a thriller, a coming-of-age narrative, and an elegy to a dying way of life. Mud is a lovely lesson on how the cure — whether it’s a snakebite antidote

Dallas Buyers’ Club Here’s McConaughey again, some 40 lbs lighter, playing late rodeo cowboy Ron Woodruff, who contracts AIDS in the mid-‘80s, when fear about the “gay plague” was at its peak. Homophobic Ron finds himself running illegal prescription drugs with the help of transsexual Rayon (Jared Leto, amazing) after doctors give him four weeks to live and the healthcare system fails him. Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallee (C.R.A.Z.Y.) coaxes meaningful, memorable performances from the two men, and a career best from Jennifer Garner. 7.The Gatekeepers Six former heads of Israel’s secret service, the Shin Bet, talk about the organization’s military and ideological struggles and its successes and failures since the Six Day War in 1967. The nature of terrorism changed after the peace summit under Bill Clinton fell apart, it changed again following the assassination ofYitzhak Rabin in 1995, and the men of Shin Bet have felt both empowered and abandoned by the Israeli government over the years. Director Dror Moreh provides unique and riveting insight into the region, the politics and the people that comprise the IsraeliPalestinian conflict. 8. Captain Phillips The true-story thriller of an American tanker boarded by Somali pirates in 2009 could have been a flagwaving propaganda piece

in less capable hands. But Paul Greengrass (Green Zone, United 93) makes it instead a character study of two men: Captain Phillips (Tom Hanks) and the pirate leader Muse (newcomer Barkhad Abdi).This is Hanks’ best work in a decade: he’s a shoo-in for Best Actor shortlist.

9.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Middle films in a trilogy are often like middle children: the first gets all the glory, the last gets all the attention, and the middle merely gets lost in the shuffle. But Catching Fire is a worthy sequel. It’s all about Katniss, of course, played with great care by Jennifer Lawrence.What could have been a standard action role in a “teen movie” is fully drawn by Lawrence, and her co-stars (Donald Sutherland, StanleyTucci, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Elizabeth Banks) rise to the occasion. Effects, locations and action surpass the original and even the boys (Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth) keep pace this time around. 10.TheWayWay Back One of the most flat-out enjoyable coming-of-age movies of the year (the other was The Kings of Summer). Duncan (Liam James) is a 14-year-old struggling to play nice with his mother’s new boyfriend (Steve Carrell, playing nasty for a change) as a long summer at his beach house looms. Duncan is saved by a secret job at the local water park and finds an unlikely surrogate dad in the park’s slacker manager (Sam Rockwell). Nothing groundbreaking here, but the film is sharply funny and has a big heart.

Raif Adelberg: Bowen to Barneys and back

GERRY WEBER

www.edwardchapmanwoman.com GERRY WEBER WEST VANCOUVER

1849 Marine Drive, West Vancouver 604-922-9144

A Bowen Island-based fashion designer is bringing his popular designs and artwork to North Vancouver for a limited time only this month. Raif Adelberg, a hot commodity in high-end American retailers Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman, is featuring his locally made clothes at a pop-up store near Lonsdale Quay. “I’ve had retail stores in the past in Vancouver and basically I’m used to being a Canadian designer but I don’t really sell to any Canadian stores,” says Adelberg. “So I thought it would be nice to do something back in Vancouver.” The store is located at 139 Lonsdale Ave. in a building that Adelberg says is to be torn down. Adelberg’s business partner Jillian Henderson and her husband Steve, who owns the building, made the spontaneous decision to turn the spot into a pop-up store. “We thought ‘we have some inventory, why don’t we do something for the holidays’ and so that’s what we did,” he says. “It was kind of quick.”

Adelberg says the response so far has been very positive. “There’s been quite a few people coming through,” he says. “The price points are relatively high but everything is 60 per cent off.” Discounted prices range from $116 to $864. The selection includes cashmere toques, scarves and cardigans, as well as Adelberg’s artwork, pieces from his Deadboys Clubhouse punk collection and some of his home accessories, including pillows and blankets. Adelberg says he started in the fashion industry at a very young age. “I grew up in the industry. My father was in the fashion industry and my mother was an interior designer and art collector and things like that,” he says. “I started, in 1989, my own business and have been doing it ever since.” One of the primary materials that Adelberg works with is cashmere, including Loro Piana and Cariaggi Italian. “I like the idea of using the yarn and basically the idea of knits; it’s something that is Canadiana — hand-knit sweaters whether it be curling sweaters or whatever,” says

Adelberg. “But cashmere is kind of a commodity the same as gold and silver; it’s sold by the weight so basically it’s X amount of dollars per kilogram of cashmere but at the same time those natural fibres can be broken down and re-spun into yarn again.” He says he likes the idea of having less waste when using cashmere, rather than other textiles that have left-over fabric. “This is basically yarn so when you knit a sweater it’s done, it’s just clipped, there’s no real wastage,” says Adelberg. “I like the idea of utilizing those things.” Besides cashmere, Adelberg says Gore-Tex is another fabric he would like to work with. “I’m looking at different bonding fabrics too, whether it be cashmere and Gore-Tex bonded or there’s wind systems and things like that where the actual fabric is coated,” he says. Adelberg is currently working on his Fall 2014 collection and will also be doing a show in Vancouver in February. The Raif temporary retail installation is open seven days a week until Dec. 24.

Lawrence takes an in-depth look at puck rock From page 18 ••• The Lonely End of the Rink is Lawrence’s followup to Adventures in Solitude, which the writer considers his summer book. “I feel like this is kind of like the winter counterpart, or the winters of my discontent,” he says of his hockey book. “Often people, when they read the first book, they wonder, ‘How is it that you are such a scared little geek, so nervous and afraid of your own shadow?’ And I suppose the answers

for why I was so meek and submissive when I was a younger kid, the answers are provided in this new book.” Lawrence says he’ll likely dip into his treasure trove of rock ‘n’ roll stories in his next book.The Smugglers eventually toured Japan, Australia and Europe, but they started in West Vancouver. “I remember one of our first gigs for The Smugglers was playing a back to school bash in the parking lot of the Lynn Valley mall and being fired mid-song,” he says. “The manager of the mall

just came up to us mid-song kind of waving his arms in front of us like an air traffic controller just getting us to stop, and he goes ‘Enough, enough, enough, no more, stop, you’re fired.’” The band also snagged about $100 worth of empties from the North Shore Winter Club after management refused to pay them, according to Lawrence. Rock ‘n’ roll features heavily in The Lonely End of the Rink. Besides lifting its title (with permission) from a Tragically Hip song,

the book includes what is perhaps the most in-depth examination of puck rock ever published. The book also covers a little bit of life on the road with The Smugglers and the release of their song “Our Stanley Cup,” which came within a couple goals of accurately predicting a Vancouver Canucks Stanley Cup victory in 1994. The book provides a blow by blow of each heartbreaking Canucks Stanley Cup loss, as well as a few tidbits about Nardwuar the Human Serviette, one

of Lawrence’s high school classmates. But before the animal factory of public school or the beer-drenched debauchery of the Flying Vees, the story starts with two parents teaching their child to skate on a frozen pond. Lawrence recently had his first child, a boy named Joshua. Lawrence says it won’t be too long before Joshua gets fitted for his first pair of skates. “I’ll teach him to skate but I won’t force him to play hockey,” Lawrence says.

Venice working hard to break stereotypes

From page 30

approaches,” she says. “It’s kind of cool because people will be walking around wearing my album.” Venice began singing from around the time she could talk. At the age of four she was playing the violin and at nine she was writing songs. The Torontonian describes her music as a unique style of pop which uses an array of instruments including the theremin, electric violin, guitar, ukulele, Omnichord and glockenspiel. Love Riddle was coproduced by Venice and Kevin

Hearn who has worked with artists such as Barenaked Ladies, Rheostatics, and Lou Reed but had never produced anyone prior to Venice. “I ended up learning how to produce as well and that was the only way that I could actually realize my vision, which I did,” Venice says. The Ontario native explains that she wanted to find a coproducer who could take her work to the next level. “I had to find somebody that I could work with and could understand what I had already accomplished and didn’t necessarily want to change what I had already done but add to it

and elevate it.” Venice began recording music in studios at the age of 14 and says she encountered various issues because of her gender. “I had a hard time recording and I think there is a thing about being a girl in the music business. As a female singer, I think there are certain stereotypes that aren’t true. One of them is that you should sing when you’re told to sing and you don’t really get input on the rest of the production and that didn’t really work for me because I always had an idea of what I wanted to do,” she says.

“There aren’t very many female producers and that is a fact — I don’t really understand what it is about production that excludes women but for whatever reason there is,” she adds. When it comes to her live performances, Venice incorporates a unique mix of fashion to express herself with costumes inspired by everything from 21st century burlesque to Tokyo street fashion. “I’m an artist right? I just want to express myself in every way that I possibly can. One of those ways is music and one of those ways is getting dressed up,” she says. “I want to wear

things that make me feel like whatever character I am that day. I feel like we all have those things inside us. The notion of identity is not necessarily static.” Venice has collaborated with Scarygirl creator Nathan Jurevicius and visual artist Ken Ogawa. “Nathan is an amazing guy. I met him a year ago and I’ve always wanted to work with him but I had never met him before,” she says. “He came to a show that I did here in Toronto and when he saw me play he wanted to work with me, which is funny.” The pop singer says she has no problem with people

who doubt her musical talents because of her unique costume designs. “I perform as a solo artist with some of the hardest instruments to play and it is something that takes a lot of practice and at this point I welcome people that reject me,” Venice says. “I enjoy it when people reject me because it makes me more effective when I can actually perform and do what I do. When people have lower expectations because of how I look, that’s fine with me.” For more information visit claravenice.com or follow @ ClaraVenice on Twitter.

Laudate releasing Tango album From page 19 “I try to make it interesting and challenging for my singers,” he says. “Most of this repertoire is new to them (and) new to me.” The choir will be performing at St. Andrew’s United Church, a venue they have performed in on numerous occasions and that has continually been very supportive of the group, says Kaario. “It has the best acoustics on the

North Shore,” he says. “Acoustically it’s a fantastic place.” Kaario, director of choral studies in the diploma of music program at Capilano University, founded the Laudate Singers in 1995. The choir is composed of eight sopranos, six altos, four tenors and five bass members. The Singers perform a variety of cultures and genres, including Baroque, South African and Coast Salish traditions to name a few.

They also commission and perform new Canadian compositions every season. Kaario says the group will be releasing a CD of their Voice of the Tango performance from this past May and will be recording their upcoming performance for a future release. “I want to produce a Baroque CD from our live concerts,” says Kaario, adding that he would like to make it an amalgamation of their different performances.

2015 Mustang unveiled Here’s a piece of trivia for you: there’s no such thing as the famous 1964.5 Ford Mustang that kicked off the whole pony car parade. Ford dealers simply called them the 1965, even though they were delivered early in ‘64; only Mustang fanatics know how to spot the tell-tale signs that a 1965 model is the earlier debut variant. Be happy about this, as Ford with their love of special-edition ‘Stangs might otherwise have built a run of 1,964.5 launch models of their newest generation — meaning that some luckless sort would have ended up with half of a pony. Now going into its sixth generation, the much anticipated new Mustang is finally here. Or rather,

An SUV with pedigree Land Rover’s latest version of its Range Rover is the fourth generation refresh of this iconic car. The top of the line Range Rover is the pinnacle of the luxury SUV segment and Land Rover has brought a number of significant changes to their flagship product while working hard to find the right balance.This is no easy task as Land Rover had to keep things fresh but also take advantage of the heritage of the legendary Land Rover brand.The best way to do this has been to emphasize Land Rover’s rugged off-road pedigree,

Range Rover Supercharged, which comes with an eightspeed automatic 5.0-litre V-8 offering plenty of performance and luxury features.

Exterior The latest generation of the Range Rover introduces a number of exterior and interior styling changes and some new advances in chassis design. One of the most talked changes for the new Range Rover products is the adoption of an allaluminum body structure — which means that the Range Rover is significantly lighter than previous versions. So

even though the new model is slightly bigger, it is more nimble and achieves better fuel economy than before. Regardless of exterior design changes, the new Range Rover manages to retain enough of its predecessors’ well-known, classic design to remain a true Range Rover. Interior The Interior of the new Range Rover is highly refined and comfortable, with lots of soft leather and a pleasingly simple set of buttons and instruments See Only page 46

that are intuitive and well positioned. Interior personal storage space is ample and the main driver instrument panel features

stunning TFT/LCD gauges. On the downside, some of the buttons and switches were located in somewhat awkward positions, namely the driver-side power window buttons which were perched directly on top of the doorframe — a surprising oversight. The driving position in the Range Rover is without a doubt commanding; it really feels like you are “on

top, looking out and over.” Coupled with an available heated leather steering wheel, or even a half wood and leather steering wheel, you will feel quite regal in the driver’s seat.

it will be next year, just in time for the half-century celebration. Opinion seems split on the design, with some folks loving the more-modern sleekness and the toneddown retro factor, while others moan that the car looks like a Fusion coupe. Really, that’s not such a bad thing. The underpinnings sound even better. For the first time since the Cobra variants of 2002-2003, the Mustang will come with a fully independent rear suspension — better for handling, slightly worse at drag racing. The five-litre V-8 will return, once again bearing the iconic fivepoint-oh fender badging, and there’ll be both the excellent 3.7-litre V-6 base engine and a new 2.3litre four-cylinder turbo putting out around 300 horsepower. Remember the SVO? What’s more, this is the model year the Mustang goes global, meaning that world-wide fans of Bullitt will soon be able to park their own pony car in their garages. Here at home, of course, we’ll be holding

our breath for the return of the Boss and the mighty Shelby variants. GM appoints Mary Barra as CEO One day after the U.S. treasury sold back its last shares of GM, Mary Barra took over from Dan Akerson as CEO of General Motors. She is the first woman to lead a Detroit automaker and, in fact, the first woman to head a major auto manufacturer of any kind. As such, much of the media coverage has been about what Barra’s gender means as an indication of changing culture in the boardrooms of Detroit. A pity, as most of what makes Barra such an interesting appointment is her unique qualifications. Trained as an engineer, Barra has been a GM employee for more than three decades, starting out on the factory floor in 1980. She has worked in manufacturing, engineering, and most recently, the human resources department. As former head of global product development, there See Hyundai page 47

Hyundai high performance plays the alphabet game From page 46 is some evidence that she’s heavily responsible for the streamlining of production, and the elimination of overcomplicated, wasteful administration. In short, Barra’s appointment marks a point at which GM appears to be focusing more on building good products, and less on the bean counting aspects. Cadillac is hugely improved, Buick continues to grow as a brand, and Chevrolet finally has some compelling offerings. There is still much work to be done, of course, but with the bleeds-GM-blue Barra at the helm, GM could finally find themselves again worthy of the name of their head offices: the Renaissance Center. Hyundai announces performance brand “N” Hyundai has decided to go rallying next year, taking a turbocharged, flared-out version of their i20 hatchback and tackling the World Rally Championship. They’ve got a good team of drivers and if the car is as fast as it looks, a real chance of upsetting current champ VW. Ever on the move, the Korean manufacturer also hinted at a new high performance badge to be found on future projects: a stylized N, shadowed by light blue and red. Hang on a sec — that looks awfully familiar. Yes, Hyundai has decided to use an idea espoused by BMW, and totally differentiated by moving one letter further

MITSUBISHI MOTORS

along down the alphabet. Entirely unique. Not derivative in any way. Still, the thought of an in-house tuning division for Hyundai can’t help but excite. They’ve always been a brash company, and with strong turbocharged engines that are easy to wring extra power out of, and a genuine rear-drive platform in the Genesis Coupe, a performance line to stand alongside their luxury-oriented Equus and Genesis Sedan makes a lot of sense.

Makeshift Paul Walker memorial draws throngs As if you haven’t already heard, one of the two main stars of the Fast & Furious franchise died in a car crash on Nov. 30. He was a passenger in a Porsche Carrera GT driven by longtime friend and business partner Roger Rodas. Both men were experienced drivers, but the car they were driving was both expensive and exotic, and had a reputation for being a handful on-track. The tiein with the Fast & Furious franchise, which glamorizes speed in a cartoonish way, has proved only too tempting to news sources, which have erupted with wild, largely uninformed speculation about what caused the crash. Reactions have ranged from calls to ban high-powered vehicles, to postulating about what might have happened had bystanders been involved. In the midst of the frenzy, it would appear that fans of Paul Walker have not forgotten that

Rover loaded with standard features From page 48 with base prices for the Supercharged set at $114,990 all the way up to a base price of $148,990 for the Autobiography version. Standard features include leather interior, power tailgate, navigation system, premium audio system, eight-inch touch screen, sliding panoramic roof, fog lights, auto-dimming exterior mirrors and heated rear-seats. Safety features include eight airbags, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, electronic stability control, traction control and front and rear park assist. The Range Rover offers a combined fuel consumption rate of 13.6 litres/100 kilometres (city 16.24 /100 km, highway 10.4 l/100 km). Thumbs up With the all-new 2014 Range Rover, Land Rover has definitely achieved the goal of the ultimate of luxury in a true off-roading vehicle. It has an elegant presence and a driving experience that will make you feel as if you own the road. Thumbs down Sometimes the suspension seems a tad too soft; ergonomics had some surprises with slightly awkwardly positioned door handles and power window switches for the driver.The Range Rover only seats five. At this very expensive price, you may be discouraged by the reliability scores and resale value for this vehicle, which have not been exceptionally high. Bottom line Along with its great offroading credentials, Range Rover adds a very strong element of luxury with an aim to maintain an image of being a true off-roader that can also feel like being the Rolls-Royce of SUVs. Competitors Mercedes-Benz GL-Class The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is the bestselling luxury SUV in Canada.The GL offers a three-row SUV meaning you can seat more than the Range Rover at a significantly lower starting price of $74,900. Fuel consumption is 11.9 l/100 km city and 8.6 l/100 km highway. BMW X5 The all-new BMW X5 offers its top of the line

xDrive 50i with a sporty, high-quality package capable of 400 h.p. and a combined fuel consumption

rate of 12.9 l/100 km. The new models offers impressive package with similar performance to the

Range Rover at much lower price points. See Competition page 50
