Windfall for West Van foundation Share in $27M endowment ‘a turning point’ for organization

BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

The West Vancouver Community Foundation is on the receiving end of the largest donation in the nonprofit’s history. The foundation, along with the Salvation Army, University of British Columbia and the Central City Foundation will share in a $27-million endowment from the estate of Howard Martin, a West Vancouver developer who died in 1994. The West Vancouver portion is $3.6 million. “Basically, it’s a turning point for the foundation,” said Gerry Humphries, board

chairman. It’s the largest single bequest we’ve received in the 35-year history of the foundation.” With the donation, the foundation will have $9.1 million in the bank, generating interest for grants offered to groups and individuals working in the fields of environment, arts and culture, educational pursuits and the health of seniors and youth. “It enables us to meet more of the demand,” Humphries said. “Every year we can only meet a certain fraction of that so given the additional revenue, this will allow for grant giving — either more organizations or bigger amounts for different organizations. It really does ramp up the amount of money we can put back into the community.” Some of the groups the foundation regularly supports include the West Vancouver See Bequest page 3

KM opponents dismiss new oil-spill gov’t regs JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

New federal government regulations forcing oil tanker companies to pay hundreds of millions more for cleanup in the event of a spill have done little to reassure North Shore activists that it would be safe to dramatically increase tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet. Deep Cove resident Janice

Edmonds, founder of North Shore No Pipeline Expansion, a group opposed to the proposed augmentation of Kinder Morgan’s TransMountain pipeline, said this week tougher regulations announced by Ottawa haven’t allayed her fears. “They advertise it as though it’s going to fix the problem,” she said. “It’s not going to fix the See Feds page 3

Cap board heeds court ruling

University delays budget pending senate policy input BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

Capilano University’s board of governors is following a B.C. Supreme Court judge’s orders after being found in violation of the provincial University Act, but questions linger about past and future academic programs at the school. The Capilano Faculty Association took the university administration to court last year after several programs were cut due to a $1.3-million budget shortfall.

Feds promise to pay for cleanup From page 1 problem.” Edmonds said her group believes if the pipeline expansion goes ahead, it isn’t a question of if a spill will occur, but when. This week, Ottawa announced several measures aimed at improving oil tanker safety. Among those, the government said it would establish new disaster response planning in areas of high tanker traffic, including southern B.C., modernize marine navigation systems and require companies to pay up to $400 million from a current industry insurance fund in the event of a spill. The government also promised to pay for further cleanup if needed and seek that money back from industry.

Bequest shines light on group’s work

But Edmonds said one of the big problems is that nobody knows how to clean up diluted bitumen — heavy oil diluted by chemicals for transport through pipelines. “People are thinking it’s just oil and we can just clean it up,” she said. “We can’t. We don’t know how.” Edmonds said experiments done on diluted bitumen so far have only been done in big tanks. How the bitumen would behave in a real scenario involving currents like those under the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing isn’t known, she said. Among other measures announced this week, Ottawa said Environment Canada, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and other federal agencies would research into how heavy oil

reacts when spilled in marine environments.The federal government said it would also allow alternative spill response measures, including treating the spill with various chemical agents, during emergencies. Edmonds said that could potentially make the problem even worse. Recently NOPE was one of the groups granted intervener status in the National Energy Board hearings on the proposed Kinder Morgan expansion. Edmonds said her group will concentrate on potential human health impacts of a spill, including how chemicals like benzene and toluene could evaporate from the bitumen and become trapped in the air over populated areas. The group has hired a

Simon Fraser University professor who is an expert in toxicology and epidemiology to help with its submission. Also this week, provincial Environment Minister Mary Polak announced Victoria has submitted more than 70 requests to Kinder Morgan asking for more details on spill response. Last month, the TsleilWaututh First Nation filed a lawsuit in federal court, saying the federal government had failed to consult with them on the Kinder Morgan proposal. If Kinder Morgan’s application is approved, the existing Trans Mountain pipeline will be twinned with a larger pipe ending at the Westbridge terminal in Burnaby — directly across Burrard Inlet from North Vancouver.

The donation has the added benefit of raising the profile of the foundation, Humphries added. “Hopefully it will put us in the eye of people who don’t know much about us,” he said. “We’re just extremely grateful to Mr. Martin and his family for making this possible. It’s a huge point for us.” Martin’s will stipulated the money be donated to the groups 20 years after his death though his giving to West Vancouver started much earlier. In 1954, he donated 10 acres of this land to establish Caulfeild elementary with the condition that the eastern end of the property should be kept as forest, because he believed that children should have direct contact with nature, according to a press release. Martin built homes around the school during the 1960s and 1970s, and was instrumental in bringing together the various owners in a process that led to the 1978 approval of the development of the Caulfeild neighbourhood.

Ivan Henry wins round in court JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

A NorthVancouver man who was wrongfully convicted and spent 27 years in jail has won the right to have his civil suit against the Crown heard by Canada’s top court. Ivan Henry was convicted in 1983 of 10 sexual offences, declared a dangerous offender and sentenced to an indefinite period behind bars. Henry, 67, was released from jail in 2009 and the B.C. Court of Appeal acquitted him in 2010 after ruling there were serious errors in the way his original trial was conducted. After his release from

jail, Henry sued the province,Vancouver Police Department and Attorney General of Canada, seeking damages for the time he spent behind bars. The lawsuit alleges the police and Crown counsel were both negligent in their conduct of the case. Among those claims, Henry said Crown prosecutors failed to disclose evidence to him that they should have, in violation of his rights. The province argued Crown prosecutors can’t be held liable for the conduct of a criminal prosecution and earlier this year, the B.C. Court of Appeal agreed. But on Thursday, the See Civil page 5

The lack of compensation has left Henry and his North Vancouver family paying for counselling and living expenses while the case drags through the courts. “He’s been coping,” said Ward. “He has good days and bad days.” During the over two decades Henry spent in jail, he filed more than 50 applications for review or appeal of his case, which

Silly season I

n case you can’t tell, election season is upon us. With six months until the next municipal election, candidates are declaring their campaigns, seeking supporters (financial and electoral) and council meetings are stretching on into the night so everyone can make sure their point has been made. Repeatedly. On the matter of campaign finance, if you’re the candidate asking for the money, there are a few things you should know. A look at our last election’s results and campaign finance disclosure forms will show that you probably can’t get on council without spending a dime but you can spend in to the tens of thousands of dollars and still be relegated to watching council from the gallery. One thing is for sure, though. If you

The law is on your side but that will never be enough in the court of public opinion if you’re voting on an issue your financial backers have an interest in — and especially so if that issue is unpopular in segments of the community. The sad part in this is that we must write an editorial along the lines of “We’d rather you not take questionable donations,” instead of one congratulating the province on changing the campaign finance laws to limit spending and restrict who can donate and how much they’re allowed to offer. Despite it being one of the top wishes out of the 2013 review of election rules, the province put if off until 2017.

Lions Gate not for speeding cyclists Dear Editor: I heard of the fatal accident on the Lions Gate Bridge on Sunday May 11. What a tragedy once again. I crossed the bridge on my bike later on that day heading north. As I arrived at the north end of the bridge just by the pedestrian underpass I suddenly heard “passing on your right” and before I could process the information another

cyclist had crashed into me! I went flying to the ground. He and his female companion stopped, asked if I was OK, I told them I thought I had done something to my ribs because the pain was excruciating! They asked me if they should call somebody to help me, I answered no. Frankly, aside from being in pain I was furious at him. Nobody passes on

the right. The young man lifted my bike, I got up and they left. I went home... with two broken ribs and contusions all over my right side. Despite all that frankly I consider myself very lucky! I am convinced that if this young man had not been so close to me or riding fast this would not have happened. My comments about

riding on the bridge and the causeway are these: There is very little width to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists. I am a 61-year-old woman who does not ride fast. However I have noticed the speed at which other cyclists ride and it can be plain scary. What is the need to go so fast? There are plenty of other routes where one can race, but please not on the

bridge or in the causeway. Most cyclists ride way too fast on the bridge and in the causeway and I would like to see signs reminding them to slow down. There are signs reminding pedestrians to keep right but nothing regarding speed. Why do we have speed limits for cars but not for cyclists? It is about time that this See Cyclists page 10

VIEWPOINT

First Nations rights may thwart Site C The issues that swirl around B.C.’s biggestever mega project aren’t going away: jobs and a secure, “clean” energy supply versus environmental damage and ignoring some First Nations rights. Those were among the issues at play when the first huge hydroelectric dams were built on the Peace River in the 1960s, and they remain attached to the latest dam — Site C — envisioned for the same waterway today. The recent, mammoth (450-plus pages) report by a joint review panel flagged all those same issues, but didn’t side one way or another on whether the dam should be built.There is a lot of ontheone-hand-but-on-theotherhand reasoning in the report, which can be used by either side in the debate to bolster its arguments. But there is one big, important difference between the debate or legalities of today compared to the 1960s: the First Nations now have very real, court-upheld constitutional rights that weren’t a factor in the construction of the first dams, but which could ultimately block Site C’s construction today. And the panel devoted

Keith Baldrey

View from the Ledge more than 30 pages in its report addressing First Nations issues, an indication of the importance it attaches to how those interests must be weighed in the eventual decision for the project. The dam would have “significant adverse effect” on local First Nations’ “traditional use” of the land, including hunting and trapping, the panel found. We’re not talking here about the court-mandated requirement to “consult and accommodate” First Nations that impact so many land use decisions.These rights run far deeper, and are entrenched in section 35 of the Constitution. Further, the valley to be flooded by Site C encompasses Treaty 8 territory, which affects 21 different First Nations

land, but the panel found that would have an “insignificant” impact on crop production because the land isn’t terribly suited to high-end crop production. In fact, the annual loss in terms of crop production would amount to a measly $220,000. Opponents of Site C have also seized on the argument that it would greatly harm all kinds of wildlife and disrupt or destroy various migratory patterns. Not so, found the panel, at least when it came to moose, elk, deer or bears, the dominant species in the region (however, some bird, bat and fish habitats would indeed be adversely affected). The panel expressed doubts about various arguments put forth by B.C.

Hydro in advocating for the dam, on everything from cost estimates to the timeline for future energy needs. In fact, in its closing summary, the panel specifically concluded that B.C. Hydro had not made the case that Site C was needed in the near future. But the panel also acknowledged that B.C.’s energy needs will increase over time and therefore more power generation will be needed.The question is not whether a new power facility (Site C or some other one) should be built, but when. This conclusion alone is likely enough to convince the B.C. Liberal government to give the project the green light when it ultimately makes its final decision this fall.

But as with so many major land use decisions, the government may find that ultimately First Nations’ rights can thwart all kinds of political desires. Legendary premier W.A.C. Bennett was able to dismiss all kinds of protests when he ordered those other dams to be built, and a government can continue to successfully ignore environmental and agricultural objections when it comes to things like dams. But ignoring First Nations rights? That’s a very different proposition, and even Wacky Bennett wouldn’t get away with that today. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC Keith.

bands.Treaty 8 specifically gives those First Nations the right to “pursue their usual vocations of hunting, trapping and fishing throughout the tract” of land in question. So, unless the panel’s analysis and conclusions on this one issue are completely off the mark, the Site C dam seems to be facing one heck of a steep mountain to get over before construction could begin. As is so often the case, much of the controversy over Site C has focused on other issues over the years. For example, there are those who bemoan the potential loss of valuable agriculture land if Site C was built. The dam would indeed flood about 3,800 hectares of potential agricultural

SD44 aims for greater energy efficiency School district makes energy upgrades as hydro rates rise JANE SEYD jseyd@nsnews.com

If your annual bill for electricity and fuel was $1.6 million, you’d likely be figuring out ways to turn off more lights and dial back the thermostat. The North Vancouver School District has been doing just that, with the help of an energy management company focused on making energy use more efficient. The school district’s goal is to cut down on energy use by 13 per cent overall by June 2016 by reducing electrical use by 18 per cent and fuel by 10 per cent. That’s enough to power eight elementary schools or 400 homes for a year. With Hydro rates projected to rise roughly 28 per cent in the next five years, the goal has become even more urgent. Since 2000, the school district has cut its energy consumption by about 30 per cent, according to a recent report presented to school trustees. The bill,

however, has continued to rise. Only about one-third of the district’s energy use comes from electricity, but it is still much more expensive than fuel like natural gas. About $930,000 of the $1.6 million annual energy bill goes to Hydro, even though the school district managed to cut back on electrical use by about six per cent in the last year. Robert Greenwald of Prism Engineering — the company contracted by the school district to help lower energy use — says there are a number of factors that can contribute to higher figures. Some schools have before- and after-school programs that operate longer hours, others rent out facilities or have lots of extra-curricular activities. “That could drive up the energy use,” he said. Among elementary schools, Brooksbank, Cove Cliff, Larson and Ross Road have all had higher-than-average energy usage. To improve that,

This summer, Larson will get the same treatment. Lighting upgrades to more energy-efficient systems have also been

carried out or planned for a number of schools. Sometimes it’s not immediately obvious why some schools use more energy than others, said Greenwald. Interestingly, it’s actually not schools or even the oldest buildings that prove

to be the biggest energy hogs in the district. The school district’s new administration office on Lonsdale is by far the biggest energy vampire — using about twice the amount of energy per square foot than many schools, despite being

built to energy-efficient standards. The cost of energy for that building alone is almost $142,000 per year, according to the report. Contributing to that is energy used to power and cool modern computer equipment and servers, a temperature and lightcontrolled art gallery, after-hours use and underground parking with ventilation requirements, said Greenwald. In high schools, the number of students with laptops and cellphones that are often plugged in and charging also contribute to energy costs through hidden “plug load,” he said. By themselves, conservation measures — like not having lights on in classrooms if they aren’t needed — can’t make up for the energy rate increases the school district is facing. Energy managers are instead focusing on “avoided costs,” said Greenwald. He estimates that energy-saving projects will save about $580,000 in energy costs the school district would have otherwise had to pay by 2017.

INQUIRING REPORTER Google is the world’s memory, but what about those who wish to be forgotten? The search engine is wrestling with that quandary following a ruling from the Court of Justice of the European Union. Those who were immortalized online can request Google take down links to their shame, particularly if it doesn’t serve a public good. Should people be able to opt out of the Internet, or will the ruling turn Google into the sole judge of what is remembered? Weigh in at nsnews.com. — Jeremy Shepherd

Community’s best interest in mind

From page 6

in formal and informal settings (including visits to the neighbourhood).The design review committee considered the proposal on two occasions. Staff spent countless hours bending over backwards to ensure that residents’ questions were answered. Hundreds of pages of correspondence were received and reviewed. Council sought and obtained answers to all of the key questions posed by Mr. Franks.There is simply no basis for his assertion that council “didn’t care” about these questions. Far from being ignored, the residents were central to the process. In the end, council voted 6-1 to approve the project. Each councillor who voted in favour gave detailed, thoughtful reasons for their support. Regardless, Mr. Franks dismisses the decision as corrupt and motivated solely by money. Perhaps it is easier for those who fall on the losing side of such contentious debates to oversimplify the issues and demonize the other side. It seems to happen all too often in local politics of late, particularly over development issues. The truth, however, is more nuanced. Decisions such as this are difficult and rest on the balancing of various important,

competing interests. Reasonable people can and do reasonably differ on such matters. As representatives of the public, we do our best to act in the best interests of the community. We are not infallible. Feel free to disagree with merits of our decisions. But please try to keep the debate civil. Craig Cameron West Vancouver Councillor

Cyclists: slow down From page 6

Some people use their bikes as a mode of transportation but still please please please, this is a plea to those who ride fast: slow down. For your safety and that of others. I would also like to see a couple of police officers randomly posted at the crest of the bridge on either side reminding cyclists to slow down and to pass on the left only, not on the right like the young man who clipped my bicycle.

VCH seeks local health data Vancouver Coastal Health is seeking North Shore residents to help bring overall health and wellness into sharp focus. VCH has been collecting survey responses for an online study into well-being but there are gaps in the data for certain areas of the North Shore.The goal is to get responses from two per cent of residents aged 18

and up. Specifically, the agency is looking for responses from residents in Lions Bay, Deep Cove and the across West Vancouver above the Upper Levels Highway. “Statistics Canada provides us with data at a municipal level,” said Dr. Mark Lysyshyn, medical health Officer at VCH. “However, if we are to create

supportive environments for improving health we need to understand what is happening in your neighbourhood.” The survey can be completed at myhealthmycommunity.org. The online survey closes June 30. People who take the survey are entered into a draw to win an iPad. — Brent Richter

clay pigs that have been formed into a winding river that snakes down the centre of the gallery. Most of the small figures were hand-sculpted by North Shore elementary and high school students, Heyerdahl explains, pausing when a familiar swine catches her eye. “Ooh, I made this one,” she says excitedly, bending down to admire her handiwork. Collectively, the thousands of clay figures make up A Pigs River, the central work in a journey exposed, which is on display until Aug. 23. The installation represents the more than 10,000 pig carcasses that were dumped into the Huangpu River in China in March 2013, and event that raised alarm over the safety of

drinking water and food production. “This is the trigger for the whole exhibition and the heart of the whole exhibition. Everything is contextualized, really, around this work,” Heyerdahl says. She hopes the collaborative nature of the installation will help connect local youth to the exhibit. “If you’re a 10-year-old or a 12-year-old or a 17year-old and you’re coming into the gallery and you’re searching for your pig, it has a different kind of meaning to you than seeing artwork that you had no relationship with.” Through new works and earlier works brought into a new context, a journey exposed explores themes of international connectivity, world food production and

political activism, along with Xiong’s personal experiences of struggle and success. Born in Chongqing, China, Xiong received his BFA and MFA degrees from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and was an important figure in the avant-garde movement in China in 1980s. He moved to Canada after the Tiananmen Square massacre and was inspired to create his Coca-Cola series in the early 1990s while working as a busboy at UBC. “He saw a student one day crush a can before throwing it out, and that to him was actually very inspirational,” Heyerdahl explains. The massproduced object, in the process of being destroyed, had gained a new life. “As

soon as you crush it, that’s when it becomes unique.” On one wall of the Gordon Smith gallery is an impressive swath of 2,750 flattened North American and Chinese Coca-Cola cans. Much like his cans, Xiong’s dreams of free artistic expression were crushed under Communist government censorship and, upon arriving in Canada, his dreams of making it as an artist in his new country were also crushed — at first. During his busboy days, Xiong, who today works as a visual arts professor at UBC, pursued his creative passion on the side and created his Cafeteria series of silkscreen prints depicting plastic forks, food scraps, paper plates,

According to Cayla Brooke, when it comes to Eva Cassidy, to know her is to love her. Brooke is the creator and star of Eva Cassidy — How Can I Keep From Singing, a hybrid concert performance and work of theatre dedicated to the American vocalist and guitarist who passed away at age 33 in 1996 following a melanoma diagnosis. Telling people about her show, Brooke, a resident of West Vancouver’s Brunswick Beach, says she typically runs into two types of people, those who say: “Eva Cassidy who?” and others who exclaim, “Oh my God, Eva Cassidy?You’ve got to be kidding me!” For those familiar with the late artist, Brooke is pleased with the opportunity to celebrate her life and work onstage.

Pink Mountaintops make some history

OPENING WEEKEND IS YOUR SUSPENSION DIALED?

■ Canadian album of the week: Pink Mountaintops — Get Back (Jagjaguwar). Rock’n’roll history filtered through the mind of Black Mountain’s Stephen McBean. In a way the band is McBean’s alter-ego and an extension of the Black Mountain “collective.” The album title is a nod to The Beatles’ song with the same name but as McBean has explained in interviews the words are also all tangled up with his concept of how

music history has played out. Sonically, Get Back is loaded with Bowie and Iggy Pop references, right down to the sax. That’s a good thing. One track, “North Hollywood Microwaves,” messes with the mood but that’s just the kind of thing Iggy would have done back in the day too. Pink Mountaintops play a sold out gig at Fox Cabaret on Friday, May 23. For more on the show go to foxcabaret.com. — John Goodman

New CD releases The Goastt — Midnght Sun (Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl bring their psychedelic sound to The Imperial on May 23). Sharon Van Etten— AreWe There (out May 27). Chrissy Hynde— Stockholm (out June 10).

. . . after we do a show,” she says. Eva Cassidy — How Can I Keep From Singing premiered in September 2013 at Kay Meek Centre and is being remounted next week for a three-night run in the West Vancouver venue’s Studio Theatre, May 22-24. Joining Brooke for the production is co-star Tom Pickett and backing band, Bill Sample, Rene Worst, Buff Allen and Dave Ivaz. The show endeavours to tell the story of Cassidy’s life and features 25 songs (“Stormy Monday,” “Over the Rainbow,” “Wayfaring Stranger,” “Fields of Gold” and “Danny Boy” among them) in a variety of musical genres — jazz, gospel, blues, country and folk included.The songs are interspersed with effective narration and theatrical elements thrown into the mix, offering audiences a few laughs, as well as a few tears. Brooke says she first heard about Cassidy from her massage therapist. “(Cassidy) tends to be somebody that you hear about by word of mouth from somebody else telling you about her. And my massage therapist wouldn’t let me go, she wouldn’t let me not listen to (her). So I finally googled her and I was absolutely mesmerized when I heard her. I couldn’t figure out why I’d never heard of her before. She just stuck with me, that’s the only thing I can say is that she wouldn’t leave me,” she says. Chatting with her guitarist (Ivaz) one sunny day over coffee in Caulfeild Village, they were discussing Brooke getting a new project going. She shared her interest in Cassidy and Ivaz revealed he was a huge fan. “It was like a boulder after that, coming down like an avalanche,” says Brooke, who started writing the script in May 2013. Ivaz challenged her to think big when it came to her co-star, someone to tackle the role of Chuck Brown, the “godfather of gogo,” an artist who performed with Cassidy in her native Washington, D.C. Brooke thought back to a recent performance by Pickett at Vancouver’s Cellar Jazz Club. “I just loved him instantly.

I knew at that moment when I was sitting there watching him with my daughter that I would sing with him one day, I just knew it,” she says. Hearing about the subject of her work, Pickett also didn’t take much convincing. “Turned out he was a huge fan of Eva Cassidy, and he said ‘Yes, absolutely.’ It was a dream happening, it just came together like a miracle.” Brooke and Pickett have formed a great professional relationship and have such great chemistry and fun on stage that, in addition to their work together on Eva Cassidy — How Can I Keep From Singing, they’ve recently formed a vocal duo they’re calling Salt ‘n Peppah. Cassidy is a continued source of inspiration for Brooke, who plans to record her debut album next year. “One of the things I loved about Eva Cassidy was that she sang anything and that is kind of like me. I don’t like being pigeon-holed into something,” she says. Brooke’s record could be a diverse array of covers or originals, only time will tell. “I have a lot of music in me,” she says. Following its North Shore run, Eva Cassidy — How Can I Keep From Singing will be remounted on Gabriola Island in August and then in Coquitlam in September. “This show right now has a bit of a life of its own. We call it ‘the little show that could’” says Brooke, adding there’s been interest in touring it in Northern B.C. In addition, as 2016 will mark the 20th anniversary of Cassidy’s death, she’s anticipating increased interest in bookings for that year. Brooke has a couple of other performances coming up, including next month, she’ll be a guest soloist at The Marcus Mosley Chorale’s June 21 performance, SHOUT, June 21 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Wesley United Church in Vancouver, and she is scheduled to perform at the Silk Purse as part of its Jazz Waves Festival on July 5. She is also working with her husband, local theatre veteran Warde Ashlie, on producing a play he’s writing, Grandpa and Me, which the couples hopes to premiere early next year.

Surrounded by wind and sand, Antar renounced all the humanity within him and denounced all the humanity without — but as often happens in these situations, that’s when his gaze fell upon a gazelle. (Flutes and piccolo.) A black bird swooped upon the running antelope. Forgetting himself — or perhaps remembering himself — Antar raced to save the gazelle. As readers of Arabian fairy tales might expect, the gazelle was something more than a gazelle, and when Antar slept that night the animal appeared to him as the Fairy Queen. (A lush, sensuous theme.)

That tale and its emotional aftermath is the basis for Nikolay RimskyKorsakov’s Symphony No. 2, “The Antar Suite,” a lush and powerful piece being performed for the first time in British Columbia by the Ambleside Orchestra. The orchestra, now in its

22nd year, was founded by former Capilano University faculty member Hilary Clark. “When I retired, I wanted a daytime orchestra to play in and there wasn’t one, so I started one,” she says, speaking with a vitality that belies her 83 years. The orchestra has grown from 11 to 49 musicians, including Clark on flute and percussion.

She’d always wanted to play music, but it wasn’t until retirement that she could devote herself to her passion. After 22 years with the orchestra, Clark’s fingers shrug off the coil of arthritis as she plays.The loss of dexterity may mean giving up flute for percussion, which doesn’t require the same degree of fine movement, but it certainly

doesn’t mean giving up music. “Music is my life. It’s always in my head. If I’m not listening to it, it’s there anyway. I wake up in the morning and the music I’ve been playing is going through my head,” she says. “I don’t know what people do who aren’t involved in music.” The orchestra is in the hands of conductor Nicolas

Krusek. While rehearsing, the players watch Krusek’s right hand for the piece’s rhythm. Krusek’s left hand is the orchestra’s gatekeeper, letting each musician know precisely when to begin playing. And while the musicians watch Krusek, he watches them. Some conductor’s listen while flipping through pages of score, but not Krusek, who conducts without a single written note in front of him. “He took us through the first rehearsal without music and he would call out things like: ‘Second clarinet in bar such-and-such, that should have been a B natural,’” Clark says, recalling jaws dropping around her. Clark credits Krusek’s incredible range of musical knowledge for expanding the orchestra’s membership. “You give your entire faith to this man, as a musician, because he knows more about your instrument than you do,” Clark says. It’s not unusual for Krusek to remind a cellist they should be playing pizzicato (plucking the string) rather than arco (bowing). “He’s not a violinist, not a string player . . . but he knows all the instruments, and all the techniques for all the instruments.” The orchestra has long See Steenkamp page 35

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to FASHION & STYLE

Finalists vie for pageant crown North Shore women to compete for national title

CHRISTINE LYON clyon@nsnews.com

Two North Vancouver women are hoping to represent Canada at the Miss Universe pageant later this year, but first they will have to impress the judges in Toronto. Chela Long and Asal Ghoseh, both 26 years old, are among the 66 finalists from across the country, including 14 from B.C., who will compete to be the next Miss Universe Canada at the 63rd annual national pageant next week. The preliminary round is set for Thursday, May 22 with finals taking place on Saturday, May 24, at which point the reigning Miss Universe Canada, Riza Santos, will help crown her successor before a live audience. Contestants will be judged in the traditional categories — evening gown and swimwear — plus a live interview segment.The 66 finalists have also been tasked with raising money for non-profit organizations. The winner of the national title will go on to represent Canada at Miss Universe 2014 in the fall.

Chela Long This marks Long’s first foray into the pageant world. Before she applied, she admits her views of pageantry were skewed by movies and TV shows such as Miss Congeniality and

They’re such wonderful women.We all train together, we all hang out together. It’s not catty or competitive,” she says. “It’s really about being an intelligent, strong, beautiful woman.” Born in Toronto,

Long has lived in North Vancouver since she was four years old. She has dabbled in modelling and acting and says she has always wanted to try competing in a pageant. This is the first year she has been able to enter Miss Universe Canada because she has been out of the country in previous years. An avid traveller, Long has visited 24 countries, lived in

Switzerland, England and Australia, and volunteered teaching English to impoverished children in China. She is also passionate about healthy living. A certified personal trainer, Long follows a vegan diet, works for a health and beauty company, is currently finishing up her yoga teacher training and is also studying natural

nutrition. She says she was inspired to get into health and fitness after encountering unhealthy body image ideals in the modelling industry. “I want to show that you don’t need to be skinny or be on unhealthy diets to be beautiful.You can eat as much as you want healthily and still be a beautiful role See Local page 29

Local delegate wants to promote women’s equality From page 27 model,” she says. For the charity component of the pageant, Long has chosen to raise money for Operation Smile, which provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the world. She says she was touched hearing stories of children who gained the ability to smile after surgery. “I’m a very happy person and I live my life in a positive way,” she says. “A smile changes someone’s mood, someone’s day.” Asal Ghoseh Ghoseh immigrated to Canada from Iran with her family when she was 10 years old and has lived in North Vancouver ever since. A graduate of Carson Graham secondary, this will be the first time Ghoseh has competed in a pageant. It’s an experience she hopes will provide a platform for her voice to be heard by other people. Ghoseh is an advocate for gender equality and wants to encourage women to enter maledominated professions. “I do believe that if we want women’s equality, we need to put ourselves out there,” she says.

Ghoseh has dreamed of being a pilot since she was four years old and is now earning her pilot’s licence through Pacific Flying Club. Her ultimate career goal, she says, it so become a commercial airline pilot. “I would love to promote girls in aviation,” she says. In addition to her flight training, she is also earning her bachelor of general studies with a minor in business at the University of the Fraser Valley. For the charity requirement of Miss

Universe Canada, Ghoseh has chosen to raise money for SOS Children’s Villages, which builds homes and villages for orphaned and abandoned children.The organization touched home for her, since Iran has experienced much conflict over the years and there are many children in need of help. Miss Universe Canada delegates are chosen each year by competing in local and regional casting calls and pageants across the country.

wrappers and drink containers. “He was sort of wading through the detritus of society,” Heyerdahl says. “He was constantly surrounded by garbage, taking out garbage, observing practices of his new culture, his new society.” Also part of the exhibit is Waterscapes, a geographic painting that shrinks the gap between the east coast of China and the west coast of Canada, as well as Xiong’s Mass-produced Food series of inkjet images that depict stacked case lots of Heinz ketchup, Prego pasta sauce, Kraft peanut butter and Warhol-esque Campbell’s tomato soup cans. Wandering into the back room of the gallery, the slightly acrid smell of fruit in the early stages of decay greets the nostrils. Perhaps the most conceptual work in the exhibit, Invisible in the Light features some 21,000 grape tomatoes pinned to the walls and hanging from the ceiling on invisible fishing line. A few days after installation, most of the tomatoes are still plump and red, but many are growing

dark spots and a few are beginning to ooze red juice. When the show closes in August, Heyerdahl expects all the tomatoes will be reduced to black, shriveled remains. Xiong’s tomato installation was inspired by his research into the experiences of temporary migrant workers in B.C.’s Fraser Valley and Ontario’s Niagara region. “For him, it’s really connected to the (Chinese) Cultural Revolution,” Heyerdahl says, explaining that Xiong, while still in his youth, was sent to toil in the remote countryside for four years. “There was a sense of hopelessness, total isolation.” Walking past the suspended tomatoes, Heyerdahl points out the delicate oval shadows cast on the gallery floor. “It’s just so beautiful and I love his work because of that. It’s very conceptual, it’s very contemporary, and yet still so beautiful, so esthetically pleasing, so touching to many individuals who may not necessarily be connected with contemporary art,” she says. “His work can be so inspirational if you look at it closely.”

FILM

Disney strikes out with Million Dollar Arm ■ Million Dollar Arm. Directed by Craig Gillespie. Starring Jon Hamm, and Lake Bell. Rating: 6 (out of 10). JULIE CRAWFORD ContributingWriter

This risk-free and somewhat bland Disney film about the boys of summer aims for a mash-up of Slumdog Millionaire and Jerry Maguire but lands squarely in movie of the week territory, despite the star presence of Jon Hamm. Hamm has proven that he can entertain us outside of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce boardroom, thanks to a hilarious supporting role in Bridesmaids and his “Simon and Simon” spoof on Adult Swim. But here Hamm is in full Don Draper mode, complete with the suit. He may be in the same business as Jerry Maguire, but Hamm just doesn’t have the passion that Tom Cruise does.

e8Q g-RR V2 VQ [0SS 98Q 93-6\3 R8)\ -2 268312 -Z\Q1 e%;% ;\3Q21\VQ VQ bVSSV8Q 98SS-3 <3R% '46F LG6NR TL$M $MR ?696& 6)) $+ VLRT $&6LHR&7 ]g_D_ EC]]cf79 Hamm plays Jamie Bernstein, “J.B.,” a sports agent who is living handto-mouth. His clients have aged out of the game and his most recent prospect has jumped ship for a rival agency. J.B. is getting desperate. Even though he rents part of his property

to Brenda (Lake Bell), a doctor, it’s getting harder to pay the bills and keep his business partner (Aasif Mandvi) on staff. One night, when flipping channels between a cricket game and Susan Boyle’s performance on X Factor, J.B. gets a radical

idea: harness the super fandom of cricket in India by putting on a game show offering a cash prize and a baseball contract to the winning athlete. Cricket and baseball can’t be that different, right? Level-headed trainers (Bill Paxton) may be

skeptical, but investors see dollar signs wherever they look. After all, who can argue with a billion new fans? The hunt is on. With a crusty retired scout (Alan Arkin) as co-judge, J.B. heads to the stifling heat of Mumbai. The standard cultural impasse emerges: nothing moves quickly in India and “incentives” are the way to get business moving; things smell bad and there’s too much traffic, too much honking. At first, the tryouts for the TV show and travels around India yield little but indigestion for J.B. He finds himself Skyping Brenda and complaining a lot. But eventually the field of several hundred is whittled down to two young men, Rinku (Suraj Sharma of Life of Pi) and Dinesh (Madhur Mittal, Slumdog Millionaire), who claim their prize money and leave their small villages behind them, heading to the skyscrapers and junk food offered by America. Aspiring baseball coach Amit (Pitobash) comes along as translator

(and is the film’s comic relief). When hotel living doesn’t work out, the boys find themselves bunking with J.B. It’s still all about the money, J.B. is always planning his next scheme. Soon, however, the burden of responsibility catches up with him. “This alternative family thing looks good on you,” notes Brenda. It’s a pretty sudden change of heart. So too is J.B.’s interest in Brenda, considering he previously only dated fashion models. Despite the punchy Bollywood soundtrack, the film feels as long as nine full innings. It’s difficult to see a live-action family film these days and the film succeeds in keeping things safe enough for the whole clan. But Disney’s effort to craft a family film means there is no real crisis and resultant “aha” moment for J.B., no tantrums nor passion, and characters so pared-down that they fail to inspire. And in an underdog movie, inspiration is the name of any game.

received $500 grants from municipalities including West Vancouver, but those days are over, Clark says. “Now put that in your pipe and smoke it for an arts organization,” she says. “We are making enough money to be self-supporting.” The orchestra generally requests $20 donations at their concerts and members pay $150 in annual dues. However, some of that money is used for grants, like the one earned last year

by 15-year-old musician Ya-Lea Steenkamp, who “plays a cello like an angel,” according to Clark. Steenkamp is slated to perform Édouard Lalo’s Cello Concerto in D Minor at the show. When Clark isn’t rehearsing with the orchestra or writing letters on the importance of a woman’s right to an abortion, she reviews operas. Despite having seen La Boheme many times over 50 years, Clark says she never

gets to the end without crying. It’s just one more example of how music is deeply marbled into her life, almost like a genetic gift. Her father sang in vaudeville and her three sons are carrying on in the family tradition: one plays in a jazz ensemble, another thrums bass for a rock group, and the third teaches band. “I’m very blessed and I’m humble, too, because I’m not a very good flute player. But I keep working at it,” she says.

2014 Honda Civic

Civic a Canadian fave

Scan this page with the Layar app to see more photos of the Honda Civic.

When the 2012 Honda Civic emerged as a new, less expensive, decontented model, the critics were unequivocal in their denigration. “This isn’t a proper Civic!” they cried, and scurried to their keyboards to ladle out the vitriol. The public was aghast, and recoiled in horror. Like ripples in a pond, the effects of the criticisms quickly spread, and soon the Honda Civic was still the bestselling car in Canada, by a landslide, for like the 16th year in a row.

Brendan McAleer

Grinding Gears

Wait.What? Yep, even if the Emperor does occasionally doff his undergarments, Canadians

still can’t get enough of the efficient Honda Civic.We’ve been smitten since the days of the CVCC, and the love affair continues even when the big H makes a gaffe. Honda, to their credit, responded to the finger pointing with admirable rapidity, and now brings out a facelifted and updated version of their perennial best-seller. Here, in the coupe, the Honda fan can find a marriage of a bit of personal style with that same sensible efficiency and durability. But has Honda done enough here to make

sure they aren’t just resting on their laurels?

Design Redesigned sheetmetal might not seem like a big deal to you or me, but when we’re talking about a volume-selling car with hundreds of thousands made around the globe, a dollar or two per car soon skyrockets into the multiple millions. Happily, that’s apparently a cost Honda is willing to pay. The new 2014 Civic See Civic page 42

Dog is my co-pilot.Well, not my co-pilot exactly, but possibly yours. On the North Shore, we love our furry friends, and most of them love to go for a ride in our cars (unless it’s to theV-E-T). I’ve seen golden retrievers sitting up front in a righthand-drive Mitsubishi Delica, looking to the casual observer like they were actually doing the driving. I’ve seen squirrel-sized Yorkies perched between steering wheel and driver. Yesterday I saw an Australian Shepherd locked in a Geo Prizm (in the shade and with the windows down, don’t worry) that had learned how to honk the horn with its butt. It did so frequently until its owner came out. Now, the argument can be made that almost any car can be suitable for a poochy ride-along, be it convertible or crossover. However, the lackadaisical way many pet owners seem to regard safety for their canine co-trippers beggars belief. Consider the front-seat riding lap dog. Essentially, letting Scrappy sit right up next to the steering wheel puts him inches away from a volatile explosive device intended to inflate violently See Airbags page 46

Civic comes with a lot of high-tech stuff

only. If you’re a taller driver who prefers an upright seating position, you’re going to end up with your head tilted over to the side like a quizzical parrot. Still, the trunk remains a usable size, and the cabin space for the front passengers is really quite reasonable.The forward view is just as good as the sedan, although the same cannot be said for the shrunken rear window, which restricts visibility to pillbox levels. Like all Civics, the Coupe continues its splitlevel instrumentation, which some love and some hate. Benefits include a highmounted speedometer that removes the need for a heads-up display, and two colour-changing strips that provide instant feedback on the gas-sipping grade of your driving style. The bigger news here is the sheer level of available technology at a mid-range level. All Civic Coupes have things like heated seats,

coupe gets an entirely new front end, and a reworked rear treatment. It now looks even more differentiated from the sedan, and why else would you be buying the less practical two-door except for stylistic reasons? Where the old one had more than a passing resemblance to a fourwheeled Dustbuster, the new Coupe looks more like a scaled down version of the Accord Coupe. Sixteen-inch alloys are standard on this mid-range EX model, and while there’s a lot of faux grille up front, the overall effect is a more aggressive little car. It’s sleek, and just a little bit interesting. Environment Inside, the Civic Coupe’s compromises might outweigh the style benefits for the practically minded consumer.That cut-down roof certainly shrinks the headroom, and the rear seats are for emergency use

Bluetooth, and streaming audio, but the volumeselling mid-range model comes with stuff like a power moonroof, leatherwrapped steering wheel, USB input, and Honda’s HondaLink system for infotainment. Then there’s stuff like the LaneWatch blindspot display. Debuting in the Accord sedan, this camerabased system shows a high resolution view of the right side of the car every time the right indicator is put on, helping to show cyclists or other obstacles lurking in your blind spot. It’s not a substitute for vigilant shoulder checking or properly setting your mirrors, but it is a handy assist. Beyond that, as mentioned, the trunk is usefully-sized, though not as gargantuan as that of the Scion tC’s hatchback, and the rear seats fold with a 60/40 split.The cloth seat-covering is grippy and durable, and similar to

TODAY’S DRIVE

No hybrid available but efficiency still pretty good From page 42

Not here though. If you’d prefer to shift your own gears, the Civic Coupe comes equipped with paddle-shifters mounted to the steering wheel and an optional S-mode for the automatic transmission. It’s no replacement for the manual transmission — which is only available as a 5-speed on base and EX models — but it does provide a little more control over the proceedings. Besides that, this is a willing little car that’s a bit let down by its overly light

performance, you’re pretty much going to have to skip right up to the Si model, but the standard Civic Coupe does manage to do a good job of re-introducing some of the zip and verve that was missing from the 2012 models.

h.p. power band. It feels planted and stable, though a long trip that took the Civic into high mountain passes showed that strong crosswinds still had their effect on this lightweight machine. It’s actually quite good, though not quite as much of a driver’s car as all Hondas seemed to be in the heyday of the early 1990s. Having said that, the Civic is easily capable of effortless highspeed highway travel, and the light steering removes most elements of fatigue from racking up the miles. If you want strong

steering. Unlike the zippy compacts of the past, the new Honda errs on the side of overboosting the steering — it’s relaxing to drive, but a little more firmness would be great. If the engineers want to know what I’m talking about, they only need drive the new Accord, which pretty much hits the bull’s-eye in that department. Handling, however, has been improved. Improvements to the chassis include a new firmed-up rear stabilizer bar, and the CVT does its best to keep the engine in its modest 143

Competitor Hyundai Elantra Coupe If purchasing a coupe is all about style, then Hyundai’s smallest twodoor makes a great case for itself. It’s very pretty, although you do have to step up the option tree a bit in order to get the sporttuned suspension and 17inch alloys. Power comes from a stout 2.0-litre engine that won’t be far off the Honda in terms of fuel economy, and delivers greater torque. However, where horsepower is concerned, neither car can really hold a candle to the other Korean maker, Kia, with its turbocharged Koup. Like the Honda, the Hyundai is a little let down by steering feel, although at least here it’s adjustable. Taken altogether, they’re a closely matched pair.

navigation functions. It’s all handled through a great-looking touchscreen, though I did find myself wishing for a volume knob.The LaneWatch blind-spot system is nicely high-resolution and points the way for great camera coverage in compact cars. The EX-L model sits atop the tree and is crammed with stuff like leather seating and satellite navigation. It also gets a three-mode camera system for the backup camera (handy, this, as the rear visibility isn’t amazing) over the single-view camera you get in the EX model. Fuel economy is better than ever, thanks to the CVT, with official ratings at 6.9 litres/100 kilometres city and 5.1 l/100 km on the highway. More realistically, highway mileage hovers in the high fives at best, and climbing through the mountains crossed the 6 l/100 km mark. Still, that’s pretty decent for a car that eschews small-displacement turbocharging or hybrid technology for a tried-andtrue four-cylinder.

in milliseconds, imbedding the poorYorkie in your ribcage, like some lostfootage scene from Aliens. Oh sure, you say, but when the window’s down and the sun’s out, you’re just cruising along at low speed anyway. If you’re stopped at a light and somebody rear-ends you, even at 40-50 kilometres per hour, that thing’s going off, and so is Scrappy — to the big dogpark in the sky. Even worse is when small dogs are allowed to lie across the rear parcel

be to find a station wagon that still has enough roof clearance. Almost every manufacturer makes a fitted dog gate for the rear of their hatchbacks, and universal fitment aftermarket options exist for those that don’t.You don’t want just a deterrent here, but something with real rigidity to hold Fido in place in case of a collision. The good news with the proliferation of crossovers in the common market is a greater choice for pet owners looking for something to haul their dogs along. Along with the CRV, the Subaru

there’s a line of harnesses from Kyjen that includes a handle to help OldYeller git on up. Where cars are concerned, some vehicles here are better suited for dog-carrying duties than others.The Honda Element, for instance, is much-missed for its hose-out floor and low loading height. Happily, the current generation of CRV has a very low loading floor considering its overall height, which also contributes to a bit more headroom for a longer-legged dog. Anyone who owns a standard poodle will know how tricky it can

shelf in a sedan. Essentially, that’s like balancing a furry football back there, and in an emergency braking manoeuvre, they represent a danger to both pooch and passenger. The best place for a small dog is in a strappeddown pet-carrier of some kind, or at least confined to the footwell. It’s not as interesting for them, perhaps, but it’s at least safe. For larger animals, all sorts of extras exist to make life easier. Folding ramps are great for helping older dogs get into the back of SUVs and higher crossovers, and

Forester remains a solid choice, with upright rear glass that doesn’t cut into cargo space, and the off-road ability to get to the trailhead if your dog is the clambering type.The Subaru’s rear fabric isn’t super-rugged, so you probably want to invest in a plastic cargo tray, but a more frugal alternative is to get a large off-cut of carpet and snip it to fit. Plastic is great for preventing spills and stopping dirt from getting really bedded into the fibres, but it is slippery if your dog tends to stand up — possibly keep a dog bed in back there. For longer distance hauling, the VW Golf Wagon and the BMW 3-Series Wagon are both available with stout diesel powerplants that are built to hit the highway. Neither is quite as big as semi-mini-vans like the Kia Rondo or the Dodge Journey, but they do provide most of the elements of dog carrying capacity with impeccable touring manners. However, you need not invest in a wagon or similar vehicle to haul your dog around safely.There are any number of products on that claim safety benefits for transporting your pet. But who tests these things? If you wanted to tie your baby to the roof with a piece of twine,Transport

Canada might have a thing or two to say about that, but the same level of consumer protection for dog owners doesn’t really exist at a government level. Happily, consumer groups like the Center for Pet Safety are quite active about this sort of thing, and recently evaluated three of the more popular harness systems on the market with some real-life crash-testing. A general rule of thumb here is that some protection is better than nothing, but there was one harness that emerged as relatively safe and recommended: the Sleepypod Clickit Utility. It’s a three-point web harness that attaches in such a way as to give your dog the same basic seatbelt protection that you enjoy, and it can fit into pretty much any sedan. As to the safety concerns about your dog sticking its head out the window and letting the drool fly in the slipstream? Well, some things are sacred traditions — maybe just strap a set of Doggles over his eyes so that he doesn’t get any debris in there. Brendan McAleer is a freelance writer and automotive enthusiast.
