NV man charged with Internet luring Jane Seyd firstname.lastname@example.org
A North Vancouver online marketing and branding specialist who has worked with big name corporate clients has been charged with Internet luring. Ian Edward Ruddle, 45, owner of dss marketing, was charged with the offence after members of the RCMP’s sexual predator observation team executed a search warrant at his North Vancouver home in December. Police allege that between Aug. 20 and Dec. 2 last year, Ruddle engaged in sexual chat online with someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl. In reality, the person was a police ofﬁcer pretending to be a child. Prosecutors have alleged the online discussion included Ruddle sending the person he thought was a teen girl emails and video messages that added up to sexual “grooming.” The messages were allegedly sent through Yahoo from both See U.S. page 5

Racist comment derails CNV debate
Brent Richter email@example.com
THE latest frustrated attempt by the City of North Vancouver to deal with Port Metro Vancouver descended to a racist slur at council Monday night. Council was discussing how to proceed with PMV and BC Hydro on the matter of controversial power lines proposed for St. Davids Avenue when Coun. Rod Clark vented a series of past aggravations with the port, ending with the most recent — not yet known to the public. “We’re getting shafted by Port Metro Vancouver on their paying of taxes because they don’t like the assessed value and they’ve gone
Mayor forces Coun. Clark to withdraw ‘jewed down’ comment
to court and they’re ﬁghting us tooth and nail and we’re getting jewed down completely on the taxes that are owed,” he said. Coun. Don Bell interrupted and pointed out that the language was racist and Mayor Darrell Mussatto told Clark with withdraw his comment. “It had no religious overtones whatsoever,” Clark said in his own defence. “It’s a commonly used term.” “Coun. Clark, you have to withdraw that comment,” Mussatto shot back.
Clark rephrased, choosing instead to say that the city and its citizens were “needlessly taking a hit” from the port. The lawsuit Clark was apparently referring to was still subject to in-camera meetings and only intended for discussion behind closed doors. With the ugliness seemingly dealt with, council discussions resumed until Clark added the city should tell PMV to “go to hell” Mussatto rebuked Clark again, twice telling him that his language was unacceptable for council chambers. “Sure, dad,” Clark responded, sarcastically. When it was his turn to speak, the mayor apologized for the earlier display. “I want to apologize to everyone in the gallery this evening and to those watching on TV and to the residents of the See Mayor page 5

WEST VANCOUVER-SEA TO SKY
Here is the last of our election grid question and answers. Candidates were limited in their responses by a word count. B.C. Conservative candidate Ian McLeod did not supply answers. To see all our election coverage in one place, go to nsnews.com and click on ‘B.C. Election.’
Jon Johnson Independent
Ana Santos NDP
Jordan Sturdy Liberal
Richard Warrington Green Party
Do you live in the riding?
For how long?
Your campaign budget?
Increased ﬁlm tax credits? Good or bad?
Yes. People in the province need to know how beneﬁcial ﬁlm production is to local communities. Please visit savebcﬁlm.ca.
Good. The NDP have made commitments in terms of tax credits, recognizing the ﬁlm industry as a major economic driver.
After years of supporting this industry, we need to continue to take steps to keep it competitive with other jurisdictions.
A tough call that the Green Party is still discussing. My personal position is no increase.
Do you favour retaining the carbon tax?
Skeptical of the beneﬁts of these schemes and would like to see hard proof of impact locally before endorsing.
Yes to retaining it, expanding it to oil and gas operations, and spending revenues on green initiatives like public transit.
B.C. should be proud to be a carbon tax leader in North America and encourage other jurisdictions to catch up.
Yes. We will increase carbon tax for all industries and remove exemptions to lower emissions.
Do you favour tolls/road-pricing or higher property taxes to fund increased transit?
Transit funding should be augmented by transit users, with subsidies available to students, seniors and low-income residents.
NDP proposes using the carbon tax to fund green infrastructure projects. This will provide steady revenue to help improve transit.
I support the Mayors Council working on regional long-term solutions with an augmented authority to determine the priorities and funding strategies needed for the increased public transit that Lower Mainland residents require.
We favour road-, congestion- and parkingpricing to fund increased transit that serves people. We will use some of the increased carbon tax revenue to fund transportation alternatives.
Would you legalize or decriminalize marijuana or continue prohibition?
Adults can decide for themselves what plants to consume. The laws are currently not aligned with this basic human right.
It’s a federal issue, but I am personally in favour of decriminalizing it.
B.C. should push for marijuana to be treated like alcohol — legalized and taxed; the war on drugs is not succeeding.
Green Party will decriminalize and regulate as a health issue not a criminal one.
Balanced budget: When and how?
The elected WVSS MLA, will have no say in policy decisions as a backbencher. Backbenchers are told by their party to present the platform (including budget) to their riding. Independents currently do not have enough inﬂuence to make a difference.
The NDP will inherit a tough ﬁscal situation, hence our modest platform. We’ll aim to balance the budget each year, but we’re committed to balancing the budget over the course of the business cycle.
B.C. has forecast a balanced budget this year; regularly balanced operational budgets support better credit agency ratings, decreased interest rates, increased savings and investment, shrink trade deﬁcits and help the economy grow faster over a longer period of time.
We are committed to long-term balance and sustainability, without undue hardship on communities and individuals, through tax allocation, and green incentives and investment to be the global frontrunner in green technology.
Is increased privatization part of controlling health costs?
Private (for proﬁt) I’m OK with as long as there is no impact whatsoever on continued investment in our Canadian public healthcare system.
Public health care is the pride of Canadians. B.C. NDP proposes costcontrolling measures; improving home care, restoring Therapeutic Initiative’s role as B.C.’s drug watchdog, etc.
We already have some privatization within the system and we can learn from other successful jurisdictions on what mix best supports access to public health care.
No. We will implement prevention and health promotion to control costs while committing to the needs of the sick and vulnerable.
Oil pipelines and oil tankers: Provincial wealth or an accident waiting to happen?
Above all business interests, we must protect our environment for future generations of humans and wildlife.
As a volunteer helping Alaska government ofﬁcials with post Exxon Valdez oil spill studies on lingering effects, I have a ﬁrst-hand account of the dangers that come with oil supertankers.
Natural resources have supported the B.C. economy and the services we rely on for decades. We need to use technology to ensure highest safety standards to allow resource extraction to proceed in a sustainable fashion.
We will run out of, and therefore need to wean off, fossil fuels. We can be a global leader in clean, green technology and already have a big enough oil cleanup ahead of us.
Seymour hopefuls draw big crowd Jeremy Shepherd firstname.lastname@example.org
A near-capacity crowd shufﬂed into Mount Seymour United Church Monday night to watch the four North Vancouver-Seymour MLA hopefuls slug it out over pipelines, ﬁlm tax credits and funding for education.
NDP candidate Jim Hanson blasted Liberal incumbent Jane Thornthwaite over the recent program cuts at Capilano University. “The future for our young people is training and education,” he said. “And yet, this government has cut advanced education funding by 2.5 per cent or $70 million, the only absolute cut in their budget was from advanced education leading to closures of whole programs at CapU and I never heard, I never heard a word from our MLA.” The decision to make spending cuts was unfortunate but necessary, according to Thornthwaite. “Obviously we have a balanced budget and we want to maintain our ﬁscal discipline,” she said before being interrupted with catcalls and peals of laughter. “Everybody in the family knows that tough decisions are sometimes required and we have to perhaps to say ‘no’ to some of our children.” Independent candidate Jamie Webbe questioned the wisdom of the provincial government being permitted to run a deﬁcit while restricting universities from the same practice. “Right now Capilano University gets $6,900 for a fulltime arts student. Emily Carr gets $9,200. The government is disadvantaging our local university,” she told the debate’s nearly 200 attendees. The evening afforded Conservative candidate Brian Wilson an opportunity to eviscerate B.C. Ferries, which he characterized as a dense, self-serving bureaucracy. “There is actually a B.C. Ferries board whose job it is to appoint the members of another B.C. Ferries board, believe it or not,” he said. “Each person serving on these boards is paid, producing no value for ferry riders or taxpayers.” He also blasted TransLink See Oil page 10

NORTH SHORE DISABILITY RESOURCE CENTRE Working for a community for all. POVERTY AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING: North Shore residents with disabilities are hit hard by poverty and lack of affordable housing.
N ORTH S HORE D ISABILITY R ESOURCE C ENTRE We work to ensure that people with disabilities, along with their families and friends, can participate actively as members of the community. We are committed to working toward a community which is free of physical, ﬁnancial and attitudinal barriers.
N ORTH S HORE D ISABILITY R ESOURCE C ENTRE 3158 Mountain Hwy North Vancouver, BC V7K 2H5 604.985.5371
www.nsdrc.org CARF accreditation was awarded to NSDRC for the following programs: Supported Living, Infant Development and Community Based Services.
We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
People with disabilities who are unable to work receive $906/ month on income assistance, $375 of which is meant to cover housing costs. The average rent for a bachelor apartment on the North Shore is $865, which is more than 95% of a person’s entire cheque, which must also cover all other expenses like food, clothing etc.
Rental Assistance Programs like SAFER are not available to people with disabilities on income assistance. Accessible suites for those with mobility issues are difficult to find and are often more expensive than the average. BC Housing is not meeting the need for subsidized housing units – the wait list in Metro Vancouver for people with wheelchairs has increased 400% since 2007, and it is not uncommon to hear of waits as long as 8 years to get into subsidized housing.
Ask your candidates what they plan to do to alleviate the poverty and housing crisis for people with disabilities in our communities.
EMPLOYMENT: Only 30 – 40% of working age people with disabilities have employment. Current disability-focused employment strategies fall far short of the supports required for employers and workers
to ensure success in the workplace. Many people with disabilities are able and willing to work, and want to contribute to their communities and the economy.
Ask your candidates what they will do to promote and support employment for people with disabilities.
FAMILY AND CARE SUPPORTS: 50% of families with a child with disabilities have had to change their employment situation to meet the care needs of their child, with more than 30% having to work fewer hours. Of families whose employment has changed due to their child’s condition, the employment situation of mothers is affected almost 90% of the time. More than ¼ of parents with children who have severe disabilities have had to quit a job. Almost 20% of families with children with
disabilities live below the poverty line (LICO). Many families with children with disabilities report needing help caring for the child and meeting other family obligations. Of those who say they need assistance, over 92% reported that at least some of their needs were unmet, citing the cost of private services, and services simply not being available through friends, family or the community.
Ask your candidates what they will do to provide supports for families of children with disabilities.
INTO ADULTHOOD: The transition from youth to adult services for young people with disabilities is a labour intensive process often filled with confusion, frustration and shock - as many if not all support services come to an abrupt end. This puts tremendous financial and time pressures on families, many of whom already struggle to meet the care needs of their children. Instead of support towards higher education, employment and a meaningful life, young people are faced with increased barriers, enforced isolation, and increased dependence on their families.
Ask your candidate how they will improve the transition process and how they would enhance services to adults with disabilities.

Mayor apologizes for remarks From page 1
City of North Vancouver for comments that were made by Coun. Clark. I’m embarrassed and ashamed,” Mussatto said. “I feel those comments are completely unacceptable in the council chambers or in our community. I’m embarrassed.” There was a familiar chorus of frustration among those council members who supported the Low Level Road expansion

Setting it straight Chris and Christina Thomas have been together for 10 years, not 20, as stated in the article You Won’t Take My Husband: Wife, published May 5, 2013.
in 2012, only to ﬁnd PMV had a series of massive projects planned that it never consulted the city or city residents on, including expansions of Neptune Terminals’ coal operation and Richardson International’s grain silos. However, none of the council members said they regretted or felt shame for voting in favour of a project with the information they had. Council has passed several motions calling on PMV to work with the city to ﬁnd ways to mitigate the negative effects of the port’s growth on its neighbours, but so far, the port has shown little willingness to change course on anything. The port delayed ﬁnalizing its plan to install 69-kilovolt transmission lines on St. Davids to give the city time to hire an outside consultant to prepare
an independent report on other options for providing electricity to Richardson without running the lines through the residential neighbourhood. The engineer’s report concludes that, while technically feasible to service Richardson’s grain terminal from the west on Port Metro Vancouver land, it would not be possible given the time constraints and budgets. The west-routing of the lines would cost an extra $10 to $12 million, according to city staff. “Council is trying to reach out to do anything we can, but tragically this is not within our realm of decision making. This is the responsibility of the federal government and the provincial government,” Mussatto said. “I’m making a plea to the port and to BC Hydro and to Richardson’s to work with the
community — to listen to their concerns and explain why they are doing what they’re doing . . . and to look at all options possible for the routing of this power. If, at the end of the day, they have to go down St. Davids, they have to go down St. Davids.” Building on past requests for a more co-operative approach with the port, Bell proposed a motion calling for the creation of a new city committee for Low Level Road and area residents to be in regular contact with city staff and council on all matters related to the port. Council passed Bell’s motion and asked staff to begin drawing up terms of reference for the new committee.

Supreme Court justice to vary his bail to allow a business trip to San Francisco this week to meet with a client. Ruddle made the application to the court after the corporate client questioned why he couldn’t come to the U.S. for a face-toface meeting.

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.
Special support A
S the provincial election slopes towards its ﬁnal week, some social issues slipped into the campaign between the managed photo ops in hard hats. Take Pat Pimm, a Liberal MLA from Peace River North, who managed to put his foot into his mouth when he spoke of the “grief” and the “trouble” caused by special needs students in the classroom at a recent all-candidates forum. Pimm mused that those “issues” were causing some parents to seek out private schools for their kids. Pimm’s words were poorly chosen and appeared to lay the blame for problems on kids with special needs themselves rather than a system that is failing them. But the idea that teachers are struggling in their classrooms with an increasing number of social and
behavioural issues, large class sizes and few supports to address them is one both educators and parents likely recognize. Thankfully, few people are advocating a return to a segregated system where kids who are different are shunted off to be warehoused by themselves. Having kids with different abilities in the classroom helps teach children the tolerance and compassion they’ll need when navigating a wider world. But kids with special needs require extra time and attention and that translates into money. Sadly, special education supports are one of the budget items that have suffered under a decade of underfunding public education. Not providing that support does no one any favours — not the kids who need the extra help, or their classmates who also deserve a fair shot at learning free from classroom crises.
Green vote a dilemma for some
Dear Editor: It’s never been easy for a green person concerned about the environment at election time. For the most part, mainline political parties have advocated endless growth on this ﬁnite planet and have ignored the increasingly obvious evidence that we are reaching tipping points on a number of environmental fronts. In an attempt to bring an environmentally aware perspective into the political process, I and a number of others have run for political ofﬁce as Green party candidates.
Although occasionally thinking that we had a chance of winning, we mostly viewed our task as raising awareness about environmental and other issues (we have a comprehensive and wellreasoned platform) that were typically ignored in the election debate. While we did raise awareness, we sometimes split the progressive vote. The only electoral success was the election of Elizabeth May to Parliament in 2011. By most reports, May has become the conscience — and maybe the intelligence — of Parliament. She was voted Parliamentarian of the Year
by her fellow MPs in 2012. But another change has also occurred. Perhaps as a result of raising awareness, or as a result of the threat of votes going to Green candidates, some mainstream political candidates have started to advocate progressive environmental policies. Protecting environmental productivity should be a priority for all and not a partisan issue. In the last federal election, instead of running myself, I supported an environmentally enlightened Taleeb Noormohamed in North Vancouver,
and I contributed to the campaign of Elizabeth May in the Saanich-Gulf Islands riding. In the current provincial election, I am contributing to Andrew Weaver’s Green party campaign in Oak BayGordon Head, but I am voting for Craig Keating, an environmentally enlightened NDP candidate, and I applaud his leader’s recent decision to make his opposition to the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion an election issue.

Pemberton residents question river diversion plan
Dear Editor: Voters in the West Vancouver-Sea to Sky riding are likely to be interested in learning more about Jordan Sturdy, the B.C. Liberal candidate. As mayor of Pemberton, Jordan Sturdy has shown limited willingness to listen to his constituents and questionable ﬁscal management. Since October 2012, at least 320 locals have expressed their opposition to a proposed river diversion or run-of-river project on Pemberton Creek through signing petitions, sending letters and attending council meetings. Such a project would ruin the stunning waterfall, negatively
impact the spawning area used by Coho salmon, contaminate a source of drinking water and not be of economic beneﬁt to Pemberton or the province. The Village of Pemberton is promoting a river diversion project on Pemberton Creek in an attempt to make up for the huge budgetary shortfall caused by the construction of Pemberton’s community centre. The latter ended up costing more than three times its original budget. Notwithstanding public opposition, council issued a request for expression of interest and on April 25 about 170 Pemberton residents attended a public
meeting, hoping to learn about the submissions received. Instead the public was merely presented with three concepts — two river diversion projects and maintaining Pemberton Creek in its natural state — while the proponents’ names were not even disclosed. Not surprisingly, the public virtually unanimously expressed their support to maintain Pemberton Creek in its natural state. It remains to be seen whether Mayor Jordan Sturdy is listening now or whether he will continue to waste taxpayers’ money on this ﬂawed and unnecessary process. Louise Taylor, Pemberton
Realty ﬂyers have so many uses Dear Editor: I would like to send a warm thank you to all the incredibly generous local Realtors who continually send us their home sales ﬂyers every week. It’s great to know that our Realtors are still taking home thousands and thousands in commissions while so many are out looking for work in this slow economy. I ﬁnd the colourful ﬂyers especially helpful as ﬁre starter, litter box liner or for picking the rocks out of my boots after a walk, and we love the way they ﬁll the mailbox and cover the dining room table. It’s very likely that we, and all of our friends and neighbours, will drop our current Realtor so that the next time we sell our house we can hire the Realtor who sends us the most ﬂyers. After all, there are far too many trees in this province anyway. Charley Miller North Vancouver

It’s time to cut through Victoria’s buffers
“Disposing of surplus properties, often with associated operating costs, would appear to make sense. However, these one-time sales cannot be relied on to resolve structural budget imbalances.” Moody’s Credit Opinion, Province of B.C., 4 April, 2013
RAISED as a Churchill conservative, one of my reasons for emigrating to Canada was the havoc unions were creating in London’s Docklands. So although I have a strong social conscience, I do not come easily to ofﬁcial socialism. But faced in this election with voting for the lesser of present evils — or not voting at all — I sure will not vote for a continuance of the past 12 years. No matter which party prevails on May 14, do British Columbians have a hope of seeing a change for the better anytime soon? Not if change needs cash in the kitty to fund it. If the Liberals pull off a majority, they’ll keep selling the farm to feed the animals. If the NDP takes over they will spend four years disarming
Elizabeth James the contractual and budgetary time-bombs abandoned by their predecessors. Government-watchers already knew about the exorbitant rates Hydro must pay to the Liberals’ independent power producers and Auditor General John Doyle has told us about the risky accounting practices foisted on BC Hydro by the Liberals. Now, Moody’s Investors Services warns that sellingoff public assets cannot be used to cover up structural accounting deﬁciencies. The Moody’s report reveals that, in a last-ditch effort to identify additional revenue sources the Liberals ordered “a detailed inventory review of government properties in 2011,” which “identiﬁed a number of properties [they]
would release for sale.” The estimated 2013-2015 revenue from the proposed off-loading of public assets and associated operating costs is $500 million. In short, Christy Clark’s “balanced” budget is in the red to the tune of a half-billion dollars. That’s “fundamentally dishonest” as Gordon Wilson said last Sunday of NDP candidate John Horgan’s ill-timed conversation with Kinder Morgan. In 2001, voters handed the Liberals a 77-2 majority that allowed them to do as they pleased with our assets. The last thing we need now is for the pendulum to swing to the other extreme. My preference would see a slim NDP majority with a sprinkling of enough Independents and Greens to keep the Legislature co-operative, courteous and constrained. Our North Shore communities are facing some seriously expensive projects. So if we want candidates to put meat on the bones of their rhetoric, it is up to us and our municipal politicians to apply some speciﬁc heat to their feet.

That’s what people say. The only problem with Blundstone boots is that they never seem to wear out. Oh, people try. But after a few years of kicking the bejeez out of them,they’re more comfortable than ever and still going strong. Expensive? Nope, they get cheaper by the day.
and Alan Nixon that initiated public discussion about replacement of the Lions Gate sewage treatment plant began that process. More important to the campaign, that project highlights our need to probe candidates’ willingness to modify/improve the well-buffered relationships between Victoria and local governments. What is meant by wellbuffered? When Victoria wants municipalities to move in speciﬁc directions, it creates a buffer — or two or three — to shield ministers from being held accountable for their decisions. The method is simple: give agencies the “authority” over contentious issues, make it plain which policies and project(s) the province will support but otherwise underfund “the buffers” to keep them and our municipalities in line. TransLink with its appointed board, Mayors’ Council and regional rubber stamp is a buffer. But TransLink’s multilayered decision-making is far from unique. The same model is being used throughout B.C. in capital projects and operations of several billion

DNV endorses Marine Village plan 7-0 Lower Capilano to become
another ‘village’ centre; Larco rezoning application expected Brent Richter email@example.com
THE way has been cleared for a gradual yet massive redevelopment of the area surrounding Capilano Road at Marine Drive. District of North Vancouver council passed the Lower Capilano – Marine Village Centre implementation plan at
Playing the balanced budget shell game From page 7 In a different way, but equally beholden to Victoria, Community Living B.C. and the Crowns – ICBC, B.C. Ferries and BC Hydro — are also buffers. This is how it plays out locally: The “surplus properties” referred to in Moody’s April 4 rating report include parking lots, a Little Mountain property in Vancouver and “old schools.” Aha! Remember when former school trustee, now councillor, Linda Buchanan told City of North Vancouver council that “the school board [had] already spoken with (Education) Minister (George) Abbott” and that the province “had no problem with” the sale of 12 school properties that were “surplus to school district needs”? Of course Abbott had no problem with it! The idea originated with his government. Like good little boys and girls and abetted by councillors who approved the necessary zoning changes, cash-strapped school boards are left to ﬁeld angry community push-back while the minister responsible just shrugs a helpless “what can I do?” So in 2012, instead of calling the province on the deceitful ruse, our North Shore buffers — the North Vancouver Board of Education and City of North Vancouver council — went along to get along. The city needed the development cost charge revenues. Similarly, the handsomely-paid executives of Crown corporation buffers have played into the balanced-budget shell game. Scarcely respectable in its own top-heavy management, ICBC improved the provincial bottom line with hundreds of millions in auto-premium dollars. Driven by the B.C. Liberals’ determination to pad the interests of IPP supporters, BC Hydro is not only being bled dry, the accounting methods forced on it by the province are close to ﬁnishing the job. Meanwhile, going along with Ottawa and Victoria through their Metro buffer regarding a new sewage treatment plant could lead to a bill of another $500 million on the doorsteps of North Shore taxpayers. Our hope for a change for the better lies in the advice given us by Heywood and Nixon, “It’s time to make some noise.” Candidates should swear an oath to the speciﬁcs of that change — and resign immediately if or when they betray it. firstname.lastname@example.org
Monday’s meeting, paving the way for developers to begin ﬁling rezoning applications for the area between Marine Drive and Fullerton Avenue on either side of Capilano Road. The ﬁrst such application is expected to come shortly from Larco, which has been waiting to submit a plan to build a “village centre” of mid-rise condos, townhouses, a community centre and public plaza on the former site of the North Shore Winter club. While the implementation plan has been hammered out in a community-led process for the last two years, the area has been sought after by developers for more than 20 years, said Coun. Alan Nixon. Mayor Richard Walton noted the residents who took part in the process were informed “to a level very seldom seen” in community planning and that well-informed residents make better decisions about the types of neighbourhoods they want to live in. Members of the Capilano Gateway Association sat in the council chamber as elected members passed the vote unanimously. The group formed because of what members saw
as a neighbourhood of rundown motels, vacant lots and decay in sore need of a redevelopment. Still, the plan had opponents, particularly in neighbouring Woodcroft where the predominant concern was about the extra trafﬁc another 1,200 units of housing would bring at full buildout, Coun. Doug MacKay-Dunn said. “Although there are going to be some people that are unconvinced, I think most of them want the change and we should proceed with this understanding there are concerns that have to be addressed. Not to do this would create more problems,” said MacKay-Dunn. Larco presented its completed designs for the village centre to the neighbourhood on Monday evening at the Capilano Rugby Club. The implementation plan process is new to the district and Lower Capilano Marine Village Centre was the ﬁrst one to go ahead. Other implementation plans for Lower Lynn, Lynn Valley Centre and Maplewood are also in the works. Implementation plans act as a step between the ofﬁcial community plan process and individual rezonings.

for similar problems. The possible expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline arose, with Thornthwaite chastising the NDP for taking a premature stance and possibly scaring investment from the province. Hanson voiced strong opposition to pipeline expansion. “Things go wrong that you never expect, and I want to hear from my friend a clear position: Are there circumstances under NEWS photo Cindy Goodman which you would support the expansion by six or eight FOUR of ﬁve candidates in North Vancouver-Seymour times, the amount of oil that face the public at an all-candidates meeting Monday. goes through in heavy tankers through our Burrard Inlet?” he option on the ballot and now there is one, one asked Thornthwaite. “There’s been tankers in the Burrard Inlet for that is truly a free-enterprise, right of centre years,” Thornthwaite responded. “I obviously party, instead of pretending to be one, as the don’t want to become a major port for super B.C. Liberals often do,” he said. All four candidates cited the importance of tankers, but we do have oil tankers there right now so we can’t put a stop to it. We can control B.C.’s ﬁlm industry, with Hanson pushing for a boost to the province’s labour tax credit. it.” “It makes no sense to have a tax system that Everyone in North Vancouver-Seymour needs the economic beneﬁt of oil production, isn’t competitive with other jurisdiction and then just have the business go elsewhere.

Wilson and Hanson appeared to be in accord transport it,” she said. Methods employed by unions also proved on the subject of housing affordability. While some co-op housing may help, Wilson divisive for Thornthwaite and Hanson. After employees sign union cards, a labour said the key issue is the economy. “We have to get more money coming in and board tallies the number of cards ﬁlled out before deciding to certify a union. Employees better jobs so that people can actually afford to considering joining a union should vote with a live here,” he said. Hanson concurred. secret ballot, according to Thornthwaite. “The solution lies in better jobs and as long “He does not support the secret ballot,” she said of Hanson. “The problem with that is that as we’re doing things like having ferries built in unions are very intimidating and workers feel Europe instead of right here in North Vancouver, there’s no way that we’re ever going to have a intimidated.” The card-check certiﬁcation system is chance,” Hanson said, drawing a raucous round simple and expeditious, making secret ballots of applause.

Todd Major SOME people say you learn more from your mistakes than you do from your successes. When it comes to gardening, that opinion really rings true for many good gardeners. Among the many major mistakes (no pun intended) I have made over the years, there was the walnut tree incident. When I was ﬁrst starting out I planted a black walnut tree (Juglans nigra) in a concrete planter, the walnut tree rapidly proceeded to punch its roots through the drain holes in the bottom of the planter and grow down through a crack in the patio below. The ﬁnal result was a slowly bulging planter that ﬁnally disintegrated leaving a pile of soil and the bottom of the planter ﬁrmly attached to patio. My advice: Learn your plants and understand where and how they grow before you plant a large, aggressive tree into a small planter. And listening to the advice that walnut trees are sometimes called “pavement busters” would also help. Here’s a mistake one of my friends made. She asked me to give her some suggestions for a plant that would grow well in a boggy, wet spot adjacent to her house. After suggesting several plants, she fell in love with a picture of giant rhubarb (Gunnera manicata) that I had sent her. Gunnera is native to South America, loves moisture and grows leaves up to 3.5 metres across while producing a thick, large rhizome that sits on the surface
Climate Change and Trees: An educational exhibit by UBC’s Faculty of Forestry that explores the effects of climate change on many of the tree species found in VanDusen’s collection will run until June 9 at VanDusen Botanical Garden, 5251 Oak St., Vancouver. The exhibit consists of 19 interpretative panels, each representing a species of tree, that explore how trees in the garden are adapting (or not) to the climatic changes in southwestern B.C.

GUNNERA grows to an impressive size. The herbacious perennial grows best in damp conditions, but gardeners beware: its roots will search relentlessly for water, so be sure to plant it well away from your house’s drain tile, writes horticulturist Todd Major. of the soil. It is truly a prehistoric and amazing looking plant. Only one problem: Gunnera roots will search relentlessly for water and since it was planted near the house, the roots found their way down into the house’s drain tile, which became plugged. My friend spent several hundred dollars removing the gunnera and ﬁxing the drain tile. I did warn her not to plant it close to the house where its roots would creep their way into the drain tile, but enthusiasm overtook reason. My advice: do not plant
anything next to the house for any reason. Instead, plant away from the house. And install a half a metre wide strip of clean crushed gravel along the house to use as a maintenance strip while using the planting bed and plants to conceal the gravel strip. Here is a brief list of other gardening mistakes to avoid: Mistake No. 1: Fertilizing with blood meal, bone meal, alfalfa pellets or ﬁsh emulsion. This type of hippie guru stuff is strictly for amateurs. The problem with all of those types of so-called fertilizers is the lack of accurate
concentration guarantee and the source is unknown, so you could be receiving potentially useless or toxic substances with those types of fertilizers. Mistake 2: Applying Epsom salts to enhance nutrient uptake. This old myth rears it head every spring when rhodos and camellias develop intervienal chlorosis (yellow between the veins). The truth is that if your plants develop this problem you should test the soil pH and lime accordingly to ﬁx the low pH problem. Raising the See Have Courage page 14

Have courage to make mistakes in garden From page 13 pH will allow the plant to access more nutrients in the soil and lime will also supply magnesium which is what Epsom salts supplies. Mistake 3: Never till the soil deeply. It is true that healthy soil that has been properly dug, amended and mulched may never need to be re-dug. However, soil that is compacted, waterlogged, eroded, or just poor quality should be dug deeply, amended with organic matter and mulched. Deep digging does kill off some beneﬁcial soil organisms; however, those organisms quickly re-establish in the soil, especially with the addition of organic
matter which is their food. And soil must be prepared to allow new plants to fully realize their potential. Mistake 4: Trench composting is good for the garden. Whenever decomposition occurs, there are gases that are given off and those gases are toxic to plant roots and soil organisms. Decomposing green or vegetable waste is also attractive to rodents, like rats. So in an urban environment, trench composting is silly and problematic. Use a proper rodent-proof compost bin instead. Mistake 5: Prune long stems by heading back to control length or height. Heading cuts remove the end of a branch which removes hormone control
which then allows all buds to grow and grow vigorously. So when you head back a stem, you actually induce bushiness and increase growth. If you want to control height, prune in summer to suppress and use a thinning cut which cuts off the end of the branch to a lower branch, thereby redirecting growth. In the end, we all learn from our mistakes. But it takes courage to have the will to make mistakes in the ﬁrst place. After all, no guts, no glory or learning.

Cuts for kids GRADE 10 Carson Graham secondary student Anika Fairholm has her hair sheared off at the school’s annual Cuts for Cancer event. Volunteers from North Vancouver hair salon The Dye Lot were on hand to cut off participating students’ hair, which will be donated to Wigs for Kids.
The Raven Boys, book one of The Raven Cycle, certainly does not disappoint. Stiefvater is the established author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races which received very positive reviews. Raven Boys is a cleverly conceived mystery/romance in a fantasy setting. Blue Sargent, a teenage girl living in a home of female psychics has always known that her true love will die at the touch of her lips — a horrible prediction to have to face. She must also deal with the Raven Boys, afﬂuent young men from the ultra swank Aglionby Academy on the edge of town who regard
the local girls as fodder to serve their needs. Unfortunately for Blue, she soon ﬁnds herself part of a group of these students who are searching for the ley lines near the town which will reveal where the body of a vanished Welsh king is buried. The boys see her as someone connected to the psychic world who is likely to facilitate such a search. Their efforts are hampered by an embittered teacher at their school who has himself been involved in the same search for many years. As Blue becomes more involved with the Raven boys, Gansey in particular, she agonizes over the dire prediction regarding her true love. By the end of the book we are desperate to know not only how the secret of the ley lines will be revealed but also whether Blue can ever hope to have a happy future.

Having polite children involves teaching Parenting Today
MOM is sitting and watching TV and 11year-old Owen is in the kitchen.
“Bring me a glass of water,” Mom says to Owen. Later that evening Owen is doing his homework at the kitchen table and says to his mom, “I want a glass of orange juice.” “That’s no way to ask,” his Mom responds. “What should you say?” Aiden and Caroline are playing in the den at the end of a long hallway. Mom yells to let them know that she wants them to wash their hands and come for dinner right now. The next day the kids are again playing and they yell at mom to come right now because they need her help. She yells back that if they
want to talk to her they should come to her, they know where she is and she doesn’t appreciate being yelled at. If we want our kids to learn good manners, we need to model the behaviour. Mom can say please when she asks for the water and she can walk down the hall to talk to the kids about dinner. She can also give Aiden and Caroline some notice rather than expect them to drop everything in that exact minute and come to the table. For our kids to learn good manners we need to teach, model and then expect them. It requires us to be aware of how we behave and what they need to learn. We all know, for example, that many young parents clean up their language when they have a child. Suddenly they can imagine some of the more unsavoury words and expressions they use coming out of the mouth of their child. The same is true of our behavior. If we want our kids to say please and thank you, we need to not only ask them to do so and teach them when to do so, we need to show them by our actions. Appropriate use of technology is going to be an
increasing issue when it comes to manners. If Mom and Dad put their phones on the table when they sit down to dinner and actually answer any calls that come in, why should they be surprised when their kids want to do the same? Dad and Simon are going to the hardware store. Simon is pleased that his Dad has included him in this trip. They are going to buy some parts they need to repair the kitchen faucet. They are chatting about the work that needs to be done and why the faucet broke. Then the hands-free phone rings and Dad takes a call. For the rest of the drive he chats with a colleague about an upcoming golf game. After the faucet is ﬁxed, Simon and his Dad are chatting in the living room when Simon’s phone rings. He goes to answer it but his father stops him saying, “Let it go to voice mail. We’re having a conversation, it’s rude to take a call.” Simon says nothing but certainly thinks about the call his father took in the car. Children can also be rude by farting, belching, coughing loudly with their mouths open and the like. Instead of saying, “That’s disgusting!” teach them. They actually don’t know about proper behavior if

IF we want our kids to learn good manners, we need to model the behaviour, writes author and professional speaker Kathy Lynn. we don’t tell them. One way we can get into trouble with teaching manners is by laughing at them when they are inadvertently rude. What’s cute in an 18-monthold might be downright rude two years later. But it’s confusing for them if you suddenly change your reactions. A challenge for parents and
kids occurs when the child wants your attention while you are talking to another adult. Teach them to approach quietly and wait. You should respond as quickly as possible. Whispering is rude. Teach your children to either say what they need to say out loud or ask to speak to you privately. Having polite children
is simply a matter of paying attention to both your behaviour and theirs. Kathy Lynn is a professional speaker and author of Who’s In Charge Anyway? and But Nobody Told Me I’d Ever Have to Leave Home. If you want to read more, sign up for her informational newsletter at parentingtoday.ca.

Book’s characters glow with life From page 23 Stiefvater’s beautifully written novel will have you on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait for Book 2! Perfect for teen readers who want a touch of the supernatural mixed in with their romance. The False Prince, Book 1 of the Ascendance trilogy, is another well-written fantasy set in a pseudo-medieval world. Adventure, murder, piracy and lots of ﬁghting and edge-of-theseat suspense make this a gripping tale. A group of street orphans are chosen by a ruthless nobleman who wishes to place one of them on the throne to avert civil war in the kingdom. The king and queen are dead and the prince, the rightful heir to the throne, has been missing for several years. The boys soon learn that only one of them, the one chosen to impersonate the prince, is likely to survive the training. The tension escalates and it appears that Sage, an orphan with a sharp wit and clever instincts is likely to emerge as the winner. Intrigue abounds in a tale with lots of clever plot twists. Sage is a strong character and readers who love the writing of Suzanne Collins and Megan Whalen Turner will relate to his struggle to survive. This is great reading especially for boys age 10 and up. The Runaway King, Book 2 of the Ascendance trilogy, continues the story of Jaron, prince of Carthya.
The suspense increases as he survives an assassination attempt and realizes that in order to save the kingdom he must leave it. Only by approaching his deadliest of enemies is there the slightest chance of his kingdom surviving and little chance that he himself will live. The sequel has just as many plot twists as the ﬁrst book and readers will be riveted by the dangerous escapades of Prince Jaron. The Summer Prince, a stunning dystopian novel set in a futuristic Brazilian city, is author Alaya Dawn Johnson’s ﬁrst young adult novel. In the lush setting of the fabulous city of Palmares Tres, a young artist tries to make a name for herself. Then her world is turned upside-down when she encounters Enki, the new Summer Prince who is destined to die at year end according to a 400-year-old tradition. The writing is wonderful and takes the reader into the heart of a culture which worships the samba, art and spectacle above all. The characters glow with life and the setting is brilliantly realized. I held my breath in an agony of hope and anticipation while reading the ﬁnal chapters. An amazing read and I can’t wait to see what this talented author will write next. Fran Ashdown worked at the Capilano Branch of the NV District Library. She loves retirement as it offers much more time to read fantasy and avoid vacuuming.

A group of Grade 5 students from Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School have earned a spot in the Destination Imagination Global Finals, to be held May 22-26.
Mutant Gummy Bears bound for Tennessee KGMS team advances in Destination Imagination Christine Lyon email@example.com
ALBERT Einstein famously said, “Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” For a group of Grade 5 students at Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School, imagination is taking them all the way to Tennessee. After winning honours for creativity, teamwork and problem solving in regional and provincial tournaments, the Mutant Gummy Bears — comprised of seven KGMS students — have earned a berth in the Destination Imagination Global Finals to be held May 22-26 in Knoxville, TN. Destination Imagination is an educational program where student teams are tasked with thinking outside the box to solve open-ended challenges. Securing a spot in the ﬁnals has special meaning for the students at KGMS, an independent school for children with learning disabilities. “Their self-esteem can be quite beat down because maybe they’ve been told ‘You’re not that smart’ or ‘Why can’t you ﬁgure this out?’” explains team manager Trish Summers. “I think this kind of challenge really validates for them that they are smart and they can do things.”
This is the ﬁrst year the school has entered a team in the Destination Imagination competition. The Mutant Gummy Bears are competing in a technical challenge called In the Zone. Their presentation includes a skit based on the dangers posed by cars. “They also had to build their own 10 cars that had to run on different power sources to get into a certain zone, almost like a bull’s eye on the gym ﬂoor,” Summers explains. In addition to their presentation, they will face an Instant Challenge in which they will be given just a few minutes to prepare and present a solution to a mystery problem. Summers said her team excelled in this portion of the competition at the provincial tournament, scoring 98.5 out of 100. “The kids are just so good at that and so I think that helps them know that they can succeed and that they have what it takes to make it and get through school,” she says. The KGMS team is among more than 8,000 students representing more than 1,250 teams from around the world that will advance to the ﬁnal round. Currently, they are reﬁning their presentation and raising money through bake sales and a “guess the number of gummy bears in the jar” contest. “It’s quite an expensive trip,” Summers says, estimating ﬂights, housing and food will add up to about $1,600 per student, “but we’ve heard all amazing things about it from teams that have gone in the past so we’re just hoping it’s an amazing experience.”

NV mom talks about parenting twins Rosalind Duane firstname.lastname@example.org
three years, she has been the chairwoman of North Shore Parents of Multiples, which is a non-proﬁt support group that offers various events and programs, including a meals-on-wheels-type program WHEN Jennifer Garden became a mom for the ﬁrst for new parents. “If it’s your second time having multiples, you deﬁnitely have time, she didn’t expect it to be so difﬁcult in the a lot of work but you have a good grasp of what you’re actually beginning. getting into,” explains Garden, adding it can be a lot to manage for Her twins, Hannah and Charlie, kept her on call almost 24/7, ﬁrst-time parents of multiples. When Garden ﬁrst found out she was having twins, her husband as she tried to catch up on sleep between long feedings. The babies took more than an hour to breastfeed, and Garden would often was excited but her parents might have known something she have about 20 minutes of downtime before she had to do it all didn’t. “They were excited, there’s no doubt. But probably the same over again. “That was just incredibly, incredibly physically and mentally reaction I have now when someone tells me they have twins (which) is, ‘Oh, I’m so happy,’ and on the inside I’m thinking, oh challenging,” she recalls of those ﬁrst few months. Garden says no one can really prepare you for the amount of my goodness, hang on,” she says with a laugh. As a health professional, Garden was a bit nervous because sleep you lose as a new parent, but having a great support she knew that twins are considered a high-risk pregnancy. network helps. For the past Fortunately, hers was an easy pregnancy, and the babies were born healthy. Now ﬁve years old, Hannah and Charlie are getting ready for kindergarten in September. “It’s a big change and I know they’re ready for it. I’m not sure I am,” admits Garden. Each stage of development has presented its own set of challenges, but the young siblings have created a special relationship. “There is a really special bond between twins,” she says. “They’re very much a little team.” Garden says her parenting style is based on mutual respect with ﬁrm boundaries. When asked if she thinks parenting has changed since she was a kid, she agrees there are some differences. “The models for parenting have changed so much, and I think being aware of that is important because back in the day a slap on the bum or whatever was acceptable and today we know that positive parenting techniques work so much more effectively.” She still catches herself wagging a ﬁnger at the kids from time to time but tries to be aware of falling back on that authoritative style. It’s hard not to feel pressure to try to be a perfect mom, but there really isn’t such a thing, she adds. Of all the challenges parents face, Garden believes sleep deprivation is one that is often overlooked but can cause a lot of stress. In her professional work as an occupational therapist specializing in pediatrics, Garden has seen how sleep deprivation affects parents and kids. “If your child is not sleeping, an entire family unit is disrupted,” she explains. “We have to look at that as a fundamental piece to health and wellness.” Her personal and professional experience with sleep deprivation inspired her to start a sleep consulting business called Sleepdreams, which focuses on sleep issues in children. Although she has had her hands full raising Jennifer Garden twins, Garden says she is open to having more has her hands kids. full with twins “I would love to have more, I just think Charlie and they’re incredible little beings, but I think my Hannah. husband’s still in twin shock,” she says with a laugh.

Salmon starts menu for mom Hennessy hosts a local lunch
Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard
THIS Sunday is Mother’s Day, and a lovely way to say thank you to your mum on her day is to host a special luncheon in her honour.
Deana Lancaster Contributing writer
THERE are few family businesses as legendary as Hennessy Cognac.
Ask your dad and your siblings to dress in their Sunday best and come over for an afternoon of shared memories and appreciation for that wonderful lady (increase the recipes if necessary to make enough to feed the assembled crew). Happy Mother’s Day to all the great mums out there.

From its origins in 1765, when the distillery was founded by Richard Hennessy, an Irish ofﬁcer serving in the army of Louis XV, it’s a brand that’s been loved by kings and empresses, and even once packed north, for an expedition to the Arctic. So when an invitation recently arrived to have lunch with Maurice-Richard Hennessy, an eighth-generation member of the Hennessy family, I cleared my schedule. Like all long-lived companies, Hennessy has always been smart about innovation, willing and able to change with the times. (Like in 1817, when the future King George IV of Great Britain, asked Hennessy to create a “very superior old pale cognac.” Since then the initials VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) have been used as a benchmark for the entire industry. Of course, some things don’t change. To be a true Cognac, the spirit must be produced in Cognac, from the Ugni Blanc grape (we know it as Trebbiano here); it must be distilled twice in copper pot stills called alembics, and must be aged for a minimum of two years in Limousin oak from the Limoges region of France.

Cognac cocktail suits menu From page 39 Hennessy is the world’s largest Cognac producer; making about 50 million bottles a year worldwide, or more than 40 per cent of the global supply. To corner that kind of market share, you have to keep up with trends, and these days, the trend is a delicious one: cocktails. Mind you, using Cognac in a cocktail is nothing new, says Maurice-Richard: “The
ﬁrst Mint Juleps were made with Cognac.” But Hennessy is better known for sipping neat or on the rocks, so he was in town to help showcase its versatility. With the help of one of Vancouver’s best bartenders, we sat down to a fourcourse lunch at Vancouver’s Wildebeest restaurant, each dish paired thoughtfully with a Hennessy cocktail. First up: an earthy Humboldt squid cassoulet, served with wild garlic purée,

paired with Wildebeest mixologist Josh Pape’s Hennessy Citrus, made even smoother with honey and elderﬂower. His Hennessy Ginger was well matched with crisped pork belly and trotters stuffed with chicken liver mousse; the ginger and whiskey in the cocktail helped cut the richness of the dish. Then we were on to the mains: roasted sweetbreads with wild mushrooms, and incredibly tender beef short ribs, both paired with the “Hennessy Apple,” mixed with Cynar, Punt e Mes, French vermouth and apple juice. Dessert, Wildebeest’s excellent sugared doughnuts, came accompanied by Pape’s elegant version of the Hennessy Berry: made with blueberry and cherry juices. The verdict: fantastic. The smooth nut and spice ﬂavours of the Cognac pair well with food, and Pape’s recipes added ﬂavour and complexity, rather than any kind of cloying sweetness. He used the Hennessy VS (Very Special, aged for a minimum of two years). The VSOP is aged a minimum of four years, while the XO (Extra Old) get a minimum of six years, but typically 20 or more years in a barrel. Want to make your own version of a Hennessy cocktail? Here’s one version of a Hennessy Berry, provided by the Cognac maker. Place 1½ parts of Hennessy with six mint leaves, one spoon of brown sugar, ½ part of raspberry juice, and ¼ part of fresh lime juice in a shaker with crushed ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds, then empty, with ice, into a glass. Top up with more ice and ginger ale, then garnish with fresh berries. Enjoy it on your deck in this week’s sunshine!

Raspberry jelly makes tart ﬁlling From page 39 some texture (you don’t want a smooth paste). Form the mixture into eight small cakes. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat; fry the salmon cakes in two batches, cooking for about two minutes per side or until golden brown and crispy on the outside but still moist on the inside. Keep the ﬁrst batch warm on a paper-towel-lined plate while frying the second batch. Add more oil to pan as required. To serve, place a small handful of mixed salad greens on each of four serving plates and top with two salmon cakes. Place a small dollop of lemon mayonnaise to top of each cake and sprinkle with black sesame seeds. Makes four servings.
Pasta with Snap Peas, Spinach & Mushrooms 8 oz farfalle pasta (bowties) ½ lb snap peas, strings removed, cut in half crosswise 1 Tbsp olive oil 2 tsp butter 1 lb brown mushrooms, cleaned and sliced ½ cup heavy cream 1⁄3 cup dry white wine 2 cups fresh baby spinach ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese ½ cup fresh basil leaves, cut
into ﬁne shreds Salt and freshly ground black pepper In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until tender; add the snap peas and cook about 30 seconds longer. Drain, reserving one cup of the pasta cooking water. In the same pot, heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat; sauté the mushrooms until they begin to brown. Add the cream and the wine and cook, stirring, for about two minutes. Add the Parmesan and the spinach and cook, stirring, until the spinach wilts. Return the pasta and snap peas to the pot and stir until warmed through, adding enough of the reserved pasta water to lighten the sauce to desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper; sprinkle with basil and stir gently to combine. Makes four luncheon servings.

Tbsp water To make custard, heat milk in a heavy pot over medium heat until simmering (do not let it boil). Remove from heat and add vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until well combined; gradually stir in ﬂour. Very gradually whisk the milkvanilla mixture into the egg yolks, then return mixture to pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, about three minutes. Pour custard into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap pressed directly onto the surface of custard to prevent a skin from forming. Let custard cool completely. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water; brush the insides of the baked tart shells with the melted chocolate. Let cool until chocolate is completely set. Spoon an equal amount of the cooled custard into each tart shell and top with raspberries. Gently heat red currant jelly and water in a small saucepan until jelly is melted. Let cool slightly, then drizzle or brush the jelly over the raspberries. Makes eight tarts. Angela Shellard has done informal catering for sports and business functions. Contact: email@example.com.

Local students get ﬁrsthand look at lab life TWO North Shore students were among four from the Lower Mainland who recently donned lab coats at the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics to become gene researchers for a week.
According to a press release, research scientists Michael Kobor and Wyeth Wasserman welcomed the students to their labs as part of the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation’s Gene Researcher for a Week program. Each year 50 students from across Canada are chosen to be placed in the labs of inﬂuential scientists over spring break. Leanne Kim, a Grade 11 student at Carson Graham, was introduced to the study of epigenetics in the Kobor lab. Fellow North Shore student Amira Badreldin, who is in Grade 12 at Argyle, was introduced to Wasserman’s bioinformatics lab. “I learned a lot about the biological and laboratory processes involved with research, but also the computer analysis, which plays an enormous role in the research,” she says. “I think this was a phenomenal experience for me, especially as I intend to pursue medical school or biomedical engineering, it was a great learning experience to see what type of work is done and what the environment is like,” she adds.

YOUR NORTH SHORE GUIDE to THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
Rockridge, West Van score B.C. hockey titles Andy Prest email@example.com
A pair of West Vancouver high school hockey teams showed off their shootout prowess en route to winning provincial titles at the B.C. championships held May 3 at Coquitlam’s Planet Ice.
Saturday’s semiﬁnal at MacDonald Park actually started well for Capilano as a Matt Simms scored a penalty kick for a 3-0 lead. From there, however, the scoreboard spun only for James Bay for the rest of the half. A converted try in the 13th minute made it 7-3 James Bay and then the game broke wide open with Dave Moonlight making an incredible play, blocking a kick and catching it all in one motion and running it in for a try. With time winding down a missed defensive assignment for Capilano led to a third try and by the halftime whistle it was 22-3. While the scoreboard said blowout, the Capilano sideline felt much differently. Larisch said there wasn’t screaming or panic during the halftime talk, rather afﬁrmation that the Caps were actually playing well and that luck would have to change. “Their pressure resulted in points and our pressure resulted in heartbreak . . . we were very unlucky to be down 22-3.” said Larisch. “We put ourselves in a really big hole. It wasn’t because we had a bad start — we actually started really well, we prepared really well, the guys came out and played very well.” With the wind and slope of the pitch now favouring them, Capilano charged back in the second half with tries from Adam Zaruba, Simms and Steven Jones, all the while playing shutout defence. By the 70-minute mark the game was all squared up, 2222. After 80 minutes the score was still tied so on they went to play two 10-minute overtime halves. James Bay struck ﬁrst with an unconverted try in the ﬁrst overtime but Capilano once again fought back, this time against the wind, with Taylor Dalziel touching down to tie it up. Here the hard luck came back, however, as Capilano’s
Rockridge secondary claimed gold at the Tier 2 level while their neighbours from West Vancouver secondary won the Tier 3 title — there are three tiers of play with Tier 1 being the highest level. In Tier 2 action the Ravens scored their second straight provincial title, beating W.J. Mouat 3-2 in a shootout to lock up the gold. Rockridge ended up with the win but they had to battle hard just to take the game to a shootout. Trailing 20 heading into the third period, Rockridge got a goal from Isaiah English to pull within one and then James Murray got the equalizer with the goalie pulled and 55 seconds left on the clock. Tournament rules stated that games tied after regulation went straight to a ﬁve-shot shootout, although that number apparently was not passed on to Rockridge goalie Sam Gray. Up 1-0 after two and a half rounds, Gray went into full celebration mode after making his third save, believing that it was an NHL-like three-shot shootout. “It was actually quite funny,” said Rockridge head coach Kenneth Kim. “He did his celebration, threw off all his stuff. He had to put it back on. It was pretty classic.” Two rounds later Rockridge got their clinching goal from David Begert and then it was time for all the Ravens to join in

MEMBERS of Capilano Rugby Club’s elite men’s team drive for the goal line in a match against James Bay earlier this season. The same two teams met in the CDI Premier League semiﬁnals Saturday in Victoria with James Bay claiming a thrilling 34-27 win in overtime to advance to the championship game.
Caps bounced from ﬁnal
Thrilling comeback falls just short in B.C. semiﬁnal Andy Prest firstname.lastname@example.org
THE Capilano Rugby Club’s elite men’s team would certainly rather have a win and a berth in the CDI Premier League provincial ﬁnal following their semiﬁnal matchup against James Bay in Victoria on Saturday but, perhaps, the team can take some solace in participating in what was, by all accounts, one of the most entertaining rugby games ever seen in these parts.
The Caps fell behind big early but roared back in the second half, eventually sending the game to overtime before ﬁnally falling 34-27 to James Bay. “It’s unanimous from their spectators and ours that it was one of the most exciting rugby games seen by anybody,” Capilano head coach Tom Larisch said after returning home to the North Shore. “It was ﬁlled with every type of drama — mistakes to high end skill play. It had everything. It was a great spectacle for the sport and it was played in good spirit.” For Capilano it had everything except a happy ending. For James Bay the win gave the team a little revenge after losing last year’s championship game to Capilano by a single point.

Kick off of crossbar in overtime a backbreaker From page 47
convert nailed the crossbar and bounced straight up into the air, falling back to earth just outside the goal line. “It was brutal,” said Larisch. “If that convert goes through we probably win the game because now they have to score and they’re deﬂated.” Instead James Bay’s Spencer Dalziel, Taylor’s brother, took sibling rivalry to a new level by beating his bro’s squad with a try in the 98th minute. The win moved James Bay to this Saturday’s championship ﬁnal against Burnaby Lake while sending Capilano to the sidelines for the summer. “We just kept plugging away and we were rewarded by our efforts with a hugely exciting comeback but we just couldn’t ﬁnish it off,” said Larisch. “The guys believed in the plan and we got right back into it but unfortunately we just created too much of a hole to win in regulation and once it goes into overtime it’s anybody’s game.” Though the bounces were unkind to Capilano, Larisch said their opponents were deserving winners. “I have to give full credit to James Bay,” he said. “The guys played outstanding and for them to regroup for overtime and play how they did in overtime was quite surprising, because it looked like we were going to kind of manhandle them.” Larisch said he’ll leave the 2012-13 season

feeling good about the club even though they fell short of a repeat championship. “I couldn’t be prouder of the effort of the players,” he said. “The club is in a good spot. Last year at this time we retired ﬁve or six key players and next year we’re only going to be adding to what we already have. Hopefully we can bounce back and make another go of it next year.” ••• Four Capilano men’s teams were in provincial semiﬁnals on the weekend, a strong show of force that also stretched the club very thin. The Div. 1 team lost 18-3 to Burnaby Lake. Following the match ﬁve players took a Heli-Jet to Victoria to provide reinforcements for the shorthanded premier team, arriving ﬁve minutes before kickoff. At the Div. 3 level the Tier A Capilano team knocked off Kats RFC 15-10 while the Tier B squad beat Comox 15-12. Capilano’s Klahanie Field will play host to four provincial ﬁnals this Saturday with the Caps taking on the Brit Lions in the Div. 3 Tier A ﬁnal at 11 a.m., Capilano B playing Abbotsford RFC in the Div. 3 Tier B ﬁnal at 12:40 p.m., the Surrey Beavers meeting Abbotsford in the Okanagan Spring Brewery Men’s League 2 ﬁnal at 2:20 p.m. and Vancovouver Rowing Club facing Abbotsford in the Okanagan Spring Brewery Men’s League 1 ﬁnal at 4 p.m. General admission tickets for the day are $15 or $10 for under-15s and students with valid IDs.

PLAYERS from West Vancouver secondary celebrate a goal at the B.C. high school hockey championships. Scan with Layar to see more pics.
ROCKRIDGE captain Nickolas Serbic leads his team onto the ice during the Tier 2 provincial championships. Rockridge won their second straight title.
High school hockey makes for interesting mix play signiﬁcantly in the ﬁnal, taking a 3-0 lead on goals from Quinn Thompson and Sam Crookbain followed by a beautiful solo effort by Paul Levine. Carney made it 3-1 but Bjorn Knutsen rounded out the scoring with an insurance goal to make the ﬁnal 4-1 for West Vancouver. Stoddart said the scoreline didn’t match the action on the ice because Chi came up big in net for the Highlanders. “We deserved to win but it didn’t have a 4-1 feel to it,” he said. “Jeff Chi really did it for us, had a really good game. He made some saves that he might not make all the time. The more he kept standing on his head, the more the guys wanted to get it done.” Hockey is a welcome addition to the high school sports world,
said Stoddart. “Traditionally hockey isn’t in high schools so they don’t get to share that high school experience of playing with their peers with the school logo on the jersey,” he said. “I’ve always though that in high school the guys that play hockey don’t get the recognition in a lot of ways because they do it all behind the scenes. So it’s nice for these guys to be able to put on the jersey and play with their friends. As the season was going on they really were getting into it. I think they’re quite proud of themselves.” The win gave West Van their ﬁrst provincial hockey title. “The boys are quite pleased to be able to put a pennant up — our ﬁrst hockey banner that we can put on the wall in the school.”
the celebration. His premature disrobing aside, Gray actually played an excellent game between the pipes, said Kim. “Usually he doesn’t play goal — he refereed the whole year,” said Kim. “He’s like a house goalie who hasn’t played goalie this year. He stood on his head for us.” The Ravens were made up of a mixture of house and rep players with two Major Midget League players, Begert and Nick Lyons, providing the top-end talent. The strength of the team was in its strong defensive crew that included Lyons, Matt Cameron, captain Nickolas Serbic and Grade 9 player Carter Stephenson who was just picked in the ninth round of the WHL bantam draft. “Itbuildsfromthebackside,” said Kim. “It was just a good, solid crew on the backside. They propelled us this year.” The B.C. high school hockey league, now in its fourth year, * has a unique setup that allows players of varying skill to form a school team in the spring following the ﬁnish of most other hockey seasons.

Once that kind of gets away on you you’re kind of like, ‘OK, I hope we get the last goal.’” The high scoring continued in the shootout as West Van potted four of their ﬁve attempts while Whistler notched three.

Too Much Information (Part II) Imagine a world that fills many personal needs in a child’s life, letting them connect to others 24/7, without the pressures of face-to-face interaction. That world is social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pheed, Tumblr ... Possessing many positive aspects, social media use comes with risks. Red flags: • The risk of developing inappropriate online relationships is higher for teens with self-esteem issues, who lack meaningful friendships and have low levels of communication with parents. • Behaviours that are difficult in person may be easily manifested online – bullying, flirting, risk-taking. • Research demonstrates that unintended sharing of personal information can have harmful effects on reputation, education and employment opportunities. • Be wary of high numbers of “friends,” especially those who are unknown to your child. • Middle of the night computer usage may be an indication of a developing problem. • Remember: what happens on the web stays there, even if deleted. Best not to share information, photos or videos that can come back to haunt you.
