Yamamoto takes NV-Lonsdale
‘Swing’ riding not close as predicted; not all votes counted
Brent Richter firstname.lastname@example.org
TWO of the North Shore’s electoral districts that generated much ballyhoo about being swing ridings — North Vancouver-Lonsdale and North VancouverSeymour — appeared to be staying in the grips of the B.C. Liberal incumbents Tuesday night.
From page 1
North Vancouver-Lonsdale B.C. Liberal candidate Naomi Yamamoto was leading the riding with 47 per cent compared to New Democrat challenger Craig Keating’s 40 per cent at press deadline. The wide margin in Lonsdale came as a surprise even to some on the B.C. Liberal Campaign. “I was looking at a 200-vote victory for us,” said George Simpson, Yamamoto’s campaign volunteer in charge of identifying voters, as the ﬁrst polls came in. Asked how conﬁdent he was the lead would hold, Simpson alluded to the tricky craft of predicting voter behaviour. “Put it this way: I have lost more money on elections. . . .” he said, breaking into laughter. Despite the slim lead at the start, there was a prevailing attitude of optimism around Yamamoto’s campaign reception. Keating had the nicest locale for an election night reception on the ﬁfth ﬂoor of the North Vancouver school district building, but his very nervous supporters were gathered around a screen showing the disappointing election results data as it rolled in. Some speculated that Keating could take the lead in the numbers, depending on exactly which polling stations ballots had been counted. Neither Yamamoto or Keating could be reached for comment on election night. The Green Party’s Ryan Conroy netted just under 10 per cent of North Vancouver-Lonsdale’s votes, while B.C. Conservative challenger Allan Molyneaux got only three per cent. Laurence Watt, the 18-year-old Libertarian candidate took less than one per cent, as did Communist party of B.C. candidate Kimball Cariou. In North Vancouver-Seymour, B.C. Liberal Jane Thornthwaite showed the riding is in fact a safe seat for her party, winning with slightly more than 50 per cent of the vote at North Shore News’ press deadline. NDP candidate Jim Hanson took about one-third of the NEWS photos Cindy Goodman votes. Asked how he was feeling about the race, Hanson was still glowing. “I’ve never been better. It’s onto the next chapter of my NAOMI Yamamoto gleefully watches election returns surrounded by her B.C. life,” he said. Liberal supporters in North Vancouver-Lonsdale. Yamamoto will return to the While it was a disappointing night for the NDP — and polling legislature for a second term after winning the close riding by a roughly seven per ﬁrms — provincially, Hanson saw reason for optimism in his own cent margin Tuesday night. riding. “In a race where the NDP lost ground in the rest of the feel so satisﬁed,” she said. “I started out just to ask people to change the way they province, we actually gained ground in our riding and that shows see their vote and I’ve had so many people that have said to me they love the fresh the payoff of all the hard work we put in.” Hanson also expressed congratulations for Thornthwaite and thanked her for ideas, the new ways of looking at old problems and I feel like I’ve really succeeded in what I set out to do.” her service to the community. Running a campaign that landed on different spots of the political spectrum on As for running again, that would be a decision for another day, Hanson said. Jaime Webbe, North Vancouver-Seymour’s independent candidate who number of issues, Webbe couldn’t say exactly who she was drawing her votes from. generated a fair bit of buzz during her campaign ﬁnished the night with roughly “I’m an equal opportunity vote-stealer,” she said with a laugh. As to whether North Vancouver voters will see her name on a ballot again, 4.5 per cent of the vote. She said earlier in the evening she was making no predictions on election night. Webbe said it will depend on the political climate at the time, though she plans to “I’m just really happy with the way the whole campaign is gone. Because of that, I stay active hammering away on the same issues she campaigned on.
RALPH Sultan, B.C. Liberal incumbent for West Vancouver-Capilano, receives a congratulatory handshake from Jim O’Rourke.
Sultan’s support tops in the province “Ralph’s a high-calibre guy,” he said. “You can’t not support a guy of that calibre and pedigree. “I grew up in Saskatchewan and I’ve seen enough of the NDP,” he added. Sultan’s campaign manager Gavin Dew said the campaign worked hard to identify supporters early through phone polls, door-to-door canvassing and robocalls. Then volunteers went into overdrive to get those voters to the polls. Earlier in the evening, voter Ali Mojdehi in North Vancouver said he wasn’t wildly impressed with the campaign. “It was the Liberals trying to show how bad the other side was and Adrian Dix in a nice way trying to do the same,” he said. “There was not much of a discussion in this election.” Another North Vancouver voter, Karen Blunderﬁeld said she met both candidates in her riding, North VancouverLonsdale, and ended up voting Liberal, based on her local candidate. “I’m one of those classic swing votes,” she said. Blunderﬁeld said at the beginning of the campaign, she was leaning to the NDP, but changed her mind after deciding “the economy was the most important issue.” Speaking from the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre where NDP supporters gathered Tuesday night, West Vancouver NDP candidate Terry Platt said she was disappointed in the party’s province-wide result. “Obviously we thought we would do better,” she said. “It was fearmongering. People were afraid (of the NDP).” Platt said she’s remaining philosophical about the result. “The people of B.C. have spoken. . . . That’s democracy for you.”
SUPPORTERS of NDP candidate Craig Keating baked a cake in recognition of a hard-fought campaign.

OUR weeks and more than 30 stories later (see them all at nsnews.com), British Columbia heads to the polls today. We will hold the front pages tonight and hope to have the results in this edition — but not on this page which must meet an earlier press deadline. It has been an interesting election in many ways and seems to have engaged the electorate more than in 2009 when barely half of the province’s registered voters bothered to mark their ballots. Whether she holds her seat and survives as the B.C. Liberal Party leader or not, Christy Clark has shown she performs well in the spotlight and under pressure. For a while over the weekend, mainstream media were agog with the prospect of a comeback for the ages as she appeared to have almost closed a 20-point opinion poll deﬁcit.
Monday’s Angus Reid Public Opinion poll numbers put the champagne back in MSM’s editorial cupboard while chilling the coronation. Adrian Dix looks like he has survived a defensive campaign surprisingly empty of detailed policy. He safely rode the pre-election sentiment that the Liberals had worn out their welcome all the way to the ﬁnish line. Dix can barely claim to have offered a reason to choose his party — just a reason not to choose Clark. One concrete NDP promise that will affect the next election — for the better we believe — will be the banning of corporate and union election donations. Disappointingly, it did not get much play and nor did the general topic of election reform. Visit votesbc.org to cast your virtual vote under three different systems. Check next week to see if the results changed under any of them.
Roads are for all, including longboarders
Dear Editor: Regarding your Sunday story DNV Gives Longboarders a Break: I am a district resident and my son is an avid longboarder, directly affected by the ongoing debate over longboarding. Longboarding is his passion. Through it, he has made many friends and connected with other longboarders around the city to trade parts, boards and stories. It seems there is a general
attitude that longboarding is dangerous, that boarders are reckless and that the roads “are meant for cars.” My son has repeatedly had the police called to intervene, and has been stopped by the bylaw ofﬁcers many times. To date, he hasn’t been charged nor received a bylaw ﬁne — he and his friends make an effort to obey the rules and skate safely, but I’m sure they aren’t perfect. My son has also had several
residents yell at him and some drive their cars in a menacing way. As a road cyclist myself, my experience is very similar to his. I’ve had my share of drivers narrowly miss me, yell at me to get out of the way and, worse, intentionally swerve into my path or slam on their brakes to communicate their anger. Mayor Richard Walton implies the solution is for longboarders to organize like the mountain bikers. I
disagree. What exactly would the longboarders organize: taking over certain streets for certain hours; conducting street maintenance or enforcing some kind of longboarder code of conduct? The analogy has a simplistic appeal, but it isn’t well thought out. The resolution to this situation isn’t to banish longboarders from the streets. Some rules for the longboarders are required — like wearing
helmets and having a respect for other road users. But the real answer lies with all of us — we need to accommodate longboarders, just like we do all other users of the road. That means slowing down when encountering a boarder, or if you’re on a street which has lots of boarders, possessing an awareness of where they are or might be. Ultimately, the attitude that the road is just for cars needs
Waste waters muddied with misinformation: Corrigan
Dear Editor: I am responding to the May 1 letter from Couns. Alan Nixon and Guy Heywood, Our Nasty P3: Paying for the Poop Plant. Unfortunately, they have signiﬁcantly misrepresented both the history and the present reality of wastewater treatment in Metro Vancouver. The ﬁnancing formula for treatment plants was previously reviewed when the Annacis Island project was undertaken to serve eastern municipalities. The City and District of North Vancouver were asked to share the cost equitably across the region. They declined. Burnaby and other cities absorbed the additional costs
of the new treatment plant, while North Vancouver enjoyed much lower sewerage rates by not participating in a region-wide cost equalization. Now, the shoe is on the other foot. Either the two politicians are not aware of the past position of their own councils or they are being intentionally disingenuous. I am also truly surprised that they suggest opposition to privatization of our public infrastructure is “ideological.” The Harper government has mandated that all projects seeking public funds must go through a privatization process, including private ﬁnancing. Citizens face higher interest costs and loss of control of a public asset. The public sector always
retains the risk, because the federal regulations require the plant to be built. If the private company fails, we have to take over and complete the project. One might ask why would the federal government insist we turn over our local treatment plant to the private sector or receive no federal funding? The only answer is an ideological commitment to privatization. Planning a treatment facility to serve the North Shore is a difﬁcult process. It does not help when local councillors muddy the waters with misinformation. Derek Corrigan Metro Vancouver director Mayor of Burnaby

Thanks for all the parades
Dear Editor: Much has been written and said about the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 118 assuming the leadership of the North Shore Canada Day parade. It should be recognized that the previous committee worked very hard for many years on the parade and provided a great deal to the community. As their ﬁnal contribution, they donated almost $8,000 in excess funds accrued over the years to two North Shore charitable organizations. Thank you so much for your past efforts.

Poop plant debate is not just about funding “There are three sources of funding (for a new Lions Gate Wastewater Treatment plant). . . . The ﬁrst is the federal government that mandated the upgrade, the second is the provincial government that stipulated the timeline . . . and the third should be a cost-sharing arrangement with our fellow (Metro) municipalities. . . .” Couns. Guy Heywood and Alan Nixon
MY reaction after comparing the May 1 letter to the editor from North Vancouver councillors Guy Heywood (city) and Alan Nixon (district) with the May 12 letter from mayors Darrell Mussatto and Richard Walton was to ask if they sit on the same councils. While the councillors suggested funding sources and fairness in municipal costsharing are major issues for them with respect to replacing the Lions Gate Wastewater Treatment Plant (LGWTP), the mayors seem comfortable with the current regional costsharing formula. In reply to questions from me, Heywood said, “Whether or not a possible increase in utility rates of 500 per cent is right, is pure conjecture.” Then, reminding us that
Elizabeth James the water ﬁltration plant came in 30-50 per cent over-budget after the ﬁrst contractor walked off the project, he warned, “If we consider that precedent — including the fact that it, too, was a priority forced on us by the federal government — we should be wary of cost estimates. “The danger to our local community is that the North Shore communities are the ones that currently have the residual risk of cost overruns if they occur in the same way as the ﬁltration project. The P3 structure is one way that we might be able to avoid that — but the devil is always in the details.” So how about we begin at the beginning and ask whether an entirely new facility at a different location is even necessary in order to achieve secondary treatment. Just because senior governments have issued decrees from on high, or because the region is behaving
as though all’s over bar choosing one of its nine glossy “concepts,” doesn’t mean taxpayers (or experienced engineers) accept the line that a brand new treatment facility on a single site is the way to go. The councillors were right to raise the cost-sharing issue on a pre-emptive basis. But a replacement of the current plant by a new one at First Street and Pemberton is by no means a done deal — whether or not the Squamish Nation wants the utility off its current site by 2020. Now for some openers: Site The Heywood-Nixon letter says: “Fortunately, the land to site the new sewage treatment plant has already been acquired.” Not so fast, gentlemen! Metro Vancouver’s acquisition may only be fortunate to the extent it cancelled out a bus depot at that location; availability does not relieve North Shore municipalities of the need to evaluate the highest and best use of the site. The councillors’ letter also says the Squamish Nation “has other plans for the land” when the lease on the current site expires in 2020. Maybe so; but has the Nation been offered ongoing revenues from an updated plant — perhaps via a design/build/operate partnering agreement with
senior, regional and municipal governments? It would be helpful for us to hear directly from Chief Ian Campbell whether his people have been given an opportunity to consider such a proposal. To upgrade the current plant to a state-of-the-art treatment/educational facility seems a better idea than to build a residential community underneath the Lions Gate Bridge, next-door to a sulphur terminal. The Squamish Nation might decide that a government-backed partnership in an essential service offered more reliable revenues than leases with other types of industries. For governments and only-one-pocket taxpayers, upgrading the level of treatment at the current location offers many potential advantages, not least of which would be capital-cost savings resulting from the ability to make use of existing infrastructure. Single site versus multi site Will North Shore negotiators take the easy way or the right way? The easy way is to drive by the former B.C. Rail site at First and Pemberton, look at the newly cleared, empty space, concede to Metro and say, “Hey! Let’s cover it with a sewage treatment plant.” The better way is to ask: If we didn’t have this empty space, where would be the
ideal location(s)? Would we build one large plant, or two smaller ones at a distance from one another to accommodate projected population hubs and for redundancy? Responsibilities and funding The Heywood-Nixon and Mussatto-Walton letters rightly acknowledge that wastewater treatment services are a regional responsibility. But that is only the case because senior governments like to legislate what will
be built where, when and how, turn up for the photoops and leave the real work for regional and municipal governments to ﬁgure out. That way, they can’t be held responsible for the decisions. But that is no excuse for local governments to avoid the wastewater-in-the-fan by engaging the LGWTP funding discussion as though all else had already been decided.

Ambleside lots get park status Sam Smith firstname.lastname@example.org

His sentiments were echoed by all of council. “This is one of the most important things we’ve done in a long time,” Coun. Nora Gambioli said. “I think this shows respect for the concerns of the public, the residents who came and spoke and have written to us.” A park dedication bylaw provides long-term protection to park lands, and changing the bylaws back is not an easy process. To rescind or remove the bylaw requires a public referendum or an alternative approval process, both of which are time-consuming and involve the public. “Because of the relative difﬁculty to remove a park dedication, a park dedication bylaw is considered to confer a high level of protection for park land,” the report policy states. The waterfront land may be used for a small restaurant and boat rentals. The existing arts and culture facilities are also slated to be retained.
DISTRICT-OWNED Ambleside waterfront lots between 13th and 18th street are ofﬁcially parkland after council’s unanimous vote Monday, May 6 to make it just that.
The new bylaw makes the land only usable as something park-related, and cannot be used for commercial development, placating some fears local residents had vocalized in previous meetings. “It deﬁnes what we’ve been aspiring to in relationship with this particular park here,” said Coun. Bill Soprovich. “This solidiﬁes the park as an area that cannot be altered for future generations, and we can still carry on . . . with some of the zonings that we need for other things.”

NORTH Vancouver RCMP are hoping there may be someone who can identify a woman known only as Jane Doe — almost 30 years since her body was pulled from Burrard Inlet.
Menopause & Premenopause Information Sessions by Dr. Anita Tannis, MD
But unlike most attempts by the RCMP to solicit help from the public, this one came images supplied in the form of a story told from the victim’s perspective. RCMP hope a police artist’s sketch of an unidentiﬁed woman found dead in Burrard “I am grateful for the Inlet on Dec. 12, 1985 and a pin she was wearing will jog someone’s memory. crane operator at the Burrard Drydock, who was the one to ﬁrst notice me ﬂoating in the a grey wool hip-length coat, maroon pants, a black blouse, a green wool vest and white wool turtleneck dickie as well as water,” the story begins on Dec. 12, 1985. “The provincial coroner told police I had drowned and had white cotton dress gloves. “I had a horseshoe pin on me for good luck, a pack of only been in the water for a maximum of 48 hours. . . . Nobody reported me missing. I was buried and issued a death certiﬁcate Viscount cigarettes and a lighter in my pocket,” she says in the under the name Jane Doe, which is the legal name designated story. “What interests police is the fact that I had the name Bella written in each of my boots. Was this my actual name? Were my to unknown or unidentiﬁed females.” The B.C. Coroners Service estimated Doe’s age to be boots secondhand?” As if expecting the big questions won’t have answers right between 55 and 70 years old. She stood ﬁve feet six inches tall and weighed about 175 pounds. She had grey eyes and brown away, investigators go on to suggest that the key to the woman’s hair — which had recently been dyed sandy blond.

Jane Doe’s story hints at foul play From page 9
memory of someone who might have only known her casually or seen her in the neighbourhood. “Perhaps someone recalls seeing me walking to the grocery store or local bank?” she says. As the narrative proceeds, the questions it asks become bigger and starker, hinting that foul play could have been a factor. “How did I end up in North Vancouver, in the water, two weeks before Christmas in 1985? Did I ride the SeaBus to North Vancouver? Was I on the Carol Ship the night before and somehow fell into the water? Or was I pushed?” North Vancouver RCMP has two ofﬁcers dedicated to seven unidentiﬁed human remains, 22 unsolved homicides and 44 missing persons investigations that have gone cold. The Jane Doe case has been generating the interest they were looking for. “A lot of people are calling from the public. It really did capture a sense of mystery. It’s very sad. We want to be able to identify this person,” said Const. Mary-Louise Zadravetz. “It’s time to put her to rest.” Anyone with information about the cold case is asked to call Zadravetz at 604-969-7505 or Cpl. Sue Tupper at 604- 9697568.

Improve energy efﬁciency at home
Todd Major KNOWLEDGEABLE gardeners who think globally while acting locally understand how to keep their gardens beautiful by growing in sustainable ways using effective techniques. For many homeowners who may not be “gardeners” in the true sense of the word, a good-looking garden is an accepted norm. And as a society we value greenspace, beautiful gardens and plants that enhance the visual appearance our neighbourhoods. For those of us who believe that living in a civil society comes with responsibility, gardening in a manner that is sustainable, beneﬁcial, effective and affordable is a minimum responsibility. So here are a few suggestions to help everyone along the path to gardening gently on earth. Where is that made? We have all heard that buying locally is good for the planet and for local businesses. If you buy fertilizer, pesticides or chemical additives like bone meal along with most gardening tools, almost none of them are made in British Columbia, or even Canada. Many of the plants sold at local garden centres are grown in B.C. by our local growers. But some plants are grown in other countries. Every time we buy a foreign produced plant we are sending money and business out of the country. Next time you buy a gardening product, check the label or ask the salespeople to tell you where the product was made or

after the ﬂowers fade. Is that a native plant? The hippie gurus have been out in full force for the last decade telling us how native plants are the best choice, they will grow anywhere and they are adapted to our environment so they suffer fewer pest and disease problems. It is true that plants native to British Columbia are highly adapted to local conditions, as long as those
This summer myself and three teammates intend to make a traverse of the icechoked Northwest Passage solely under human power in a custom designed ocean rowing boat, travelling some 3,000 kilometres from Tuktoyaktuk, N.W.T. to Pond Inlet, Nunavut. Our hope is that by making this traverse, a traverse that’s never been done before because it couldn’t have been done before, we’ll be able to bring awareness to the profound effects climate change is having on the Arctic. I’ve spent the last six months consumed in the design of our custom rowing boat attempting to create the most versatile, energy efﬁcient, environmentally sensitive craft possible. This design exercise made me think about the simple changes that can be done to make a home more energy efﬁcient and livable. Here are a few simple steps one can take to greatly increase the efﬁciency of their homes: n Increasing the insulation in your home is a guaranteed way to move towards energy efﬁciency.

This is the common refrain of so many people who are looking for plants that bloom and bloom. Sorry, that’s just not real. Annuals may bloom all summer but most plants bloom for a few weeks and that’s all. It’s nature’s way. We can’t have children (ﬂowers) all the time or we would be exhausted or dead and neither can plants. If you are looking for new
plants don’t be sucked in by “big blooms” or “long lasting ﬂowers” on the label, it’s all marketing. Choose plants with attractive ﬂowers but do not make that the single most important purchasing criteria. Look for plants that have fragrant foliage, produce attractive fruits or seed pods in fall and always look for outstanding foliage. Beautiful foliage provides the best visual return on investment because attractive foliage lasts and provides long-term interest

lated home will be a warm and comfortable one and will be the most energy efﬁcient solution. n Draft-prooﬁng your home is likely the easiest and cheapest way to make energy-efﬁcient gains in your home. Seal things up and your energy bills will drop. n Having a look at your furnace is always a good move. Older furnaces are often oversized and typically have very inefﬁcient motors and heat exchangers. Upgrading to a more energy efﬁcient model will see immediate gains. n Replacing single-glazed windows with double-glazed ones will bring huge gains as a single pane of glass has very little insulation qualities.
The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corp. has a number of programs to help out home owners wishing to make energy conscious changes to their homes. Look on their website to see eligibility. Simply put, an energy-efﬁcient home uses less energy and is less expensive to operate. Making some simple changes won’t break the bank and you might even receive ﬁnancial assistance to do it, you’ll see signiﬁcant reductions to your monthly utility bill and through it all you’ll be reducing your greenhouse gas emissions as well.

Jewelry display spells ‘creativity’
KIDS love to hang their jewelry and artwork up in their rooms.
There are lots of creative ways to display and organize a teenage girl’s jewelry whether it’s on a bulletin board or magnet board. Here’s a cute idea that she can make with a few simple craft items from your local craft store. Look for pre-painted letters to make the task even easier. Materials: Pre-cut wood letters (available at Michaels Crafts) Acrylic paint (optional) Miniature screw-in hooks Glue and glue gun You may be able to ﬁnd the miniature screw-in hooks at your local hardware store or at Michaels Crafts. I believe they
come in both silver and gold. If you wish to purchase the unpainted letters and paint them a custom colour you may do this ﬁrst and let the letters dry overnight. There are also pre-cut words that you can purchase if you see something you like. Once the letters are dry, carefully insert the miniature hooks into the bottom of every second letter or every letter, according to your preference. Determine where you would like to hang the letters to form the word you are making and use your glue gun to attach the letters or word to the wall. Hang your jewelry from the miniature hooks. Another cute idea is to display your jewelry on branches from your garden. I’ve seen this idea done where the twig is cut to 10-20 cm long and spray painted white. Once it is dry, you can place it in a container ﬁlled with sand and hang your bracelets and necklaces on the small twigs. Empty picture frames work well for this ideas as well. Simply secure a small ﬂoral wire or ﬁshing line between the vertical sides of the frame with a small pushpin. Hook your earrings on the wire and lean the frame against a small wall or your dressing table. lunter.ca

Mulch garden beds to suppress weeds From page 13
conditions are in a forest, on a mountaintop or along a river. When it comes to planting many native plants in urban settings, most simply do not ﬂourish in the hostile urban environment. It would also help all of us who like native plants if the native plant prophets would put their plants where their mouths are and start selling more than just two ferns, a cedar tree and ninebark, so we could plant more native plants. The top level philosophy for choosing plants is, “choose the right plant for the right place” and nothing else works as well. The weeds are taller than my kids! Weeding is not gardening. Weeding is work. To avoid weeding, the most sustainable, effective and affordable method is to mulch all garden beds. For all of those people out there cultivating the soil’s surface or paying someone to cultivate the soil’s surface to stop weed growth, I feel your pain and I have some advice. Cultivating the soil’s surface to develop that black soil agricultural look is a function of the desire of our vanity and it’s a short-term control method that is expensive over the long
term. Mulching is a longterm control method and buying mulch helps support local landscape businesses. There should never be bare, unmulched soil in the garden, unless you want to grow weeds. Flower beds take too much work, that’s why I have a lawn. Planted beds cost half as much to maintain in time and money versus an equal amount of lawn. If you don’t play on the lawn, sleep on it, dance on it, let the pets use it, eat it or have some other use for a lawn, then why have one? Lawns are the single most unsustainable, water hogging, resource-sucking monster in gardening. You want to save the planet, save money and have more time in the garden, then kill your grass and turn it into something useful, like a vegetable garden, pathway, patio, play area for the kids, planted ﬂower bed, pond or whatever suits your lifestyle and desire.

Spring’s symphony of nature
SPRING is not only a busy time for birds, but it’s also a busy time for birders.
It is a season of peak migration, and of bird song. Some are neo-tropical migrants like ﬂycatchers, warblers, vireos, western tanagers, and the blackheaded grosbeak. The purple martin, for example, winters in South America (Brazil), making an annual migration of thousands of kilometres. Turkey vultures pass through the North Shore in good numbers, with a few staying the summer. Ospreys arrived back at Maplewood Conservation Area in March, possibly having wintered in Mexico or further south.

Wild About Birds Al Grass
Spring marks a time when birds, like some waterfowl that have spent the winter locally, leave for breeding areas in B.C.’s Interior (like the Cariboo): the common goldeneye, Barrow’s goldeneye and bufﬂehead are three good examples of these. Other species head to Alaska to breed, or in the case of shorebirds (waders), to the Arctic. A few waterfowl like the cinnamon teal and bluewinged teal, and one wader, the spotted sandpiper are the opposite of this pattern, having wintered in southern latitudes, but breeding here. If there is one feature of the bird world that characterizes spring, it is song — beautiful and wonderful bird song. It’s an inspiration to hear the “symphony of nature,” especially the “dawn chorus.” Many birds start singing at sunrise, as if to greet the morning sun. Some are early starters like the robin with its carolling, and the black-capped chickadee with its “tea-time” (or is it “cheeseburger?”). Since we haven’t heard these songs since last spring, a year ago, it’s always a bit of a challenge to remember them, but there are lots of apps and CDs to help us. One good way to help you remember bird songs and calls is to translate them into words and phrases. A famous one is the white-throated sparrow which sings “old Sam Peabody” south of the border, and “Canada, sweet Canada” north of the border (at least that is how the story goes!). And speaking of the white-throated sparrow, a number of have been spotted in the Metro Vancouver area, including one at Maplewood. Rufous hummingbirds arrived on the North Shore in good numbers (lots of sightings) this spring. All winter long we’ve enjoyed the beautiful Anna’s hummingbirds — now we have two species to marvel at. Always keep close watch for a third species — the Calliope, which is rare on the

A male Audubon’s yellow-rumped warbler displays its colourful plumage at Maplewood Conservation Area. North Shore, but common in the Interior. The calliope that appeared at Maplewood a few springs ago was nectaring (feeding) at black twinﬂower ﬂowers, a honeysuckle related shrub. Spring is also the season to watch for movements of gulls and terns. We have our resident glaucous-winged gulls, but others to be looked for include California, mew, ring-billed, and the dainty Bonaparte’s. Terns are known for their habit of plunge diving headlong into water with a big splash. Watch for both common terns and Caspian terns in Burrard Inlet. The purple martin, as mentioned, winters in South America (Brazil). Maplewood Conservation Area’s breeding colony, consisting of properly designed nesting boxes, is one of B.C.’s largest. Bringing the martin back to the North Shore is one of B.C.’s greatest conservation stories — one that we all can be proud of. A good place at the sanctuary to watch for birds like martins, ospreys, eagles, herons and gulls is Osprey Point. Watch also for waterfowl, grebes, cormorants and the pigeon guillemots. In the woods, and at the forest edges, purple ﬁnch, American goldﬁnch, yellowrumped warbler should be easy to ﬁnd — all singing. A little more challenging to locate are the hermit thrush, Townsend’s warbler, brown creeper, and Hutton’s vireo
— it’s a matter of stopping frequently and listening. In our local mountains, the sooty grouse will be hooting. Its voice sounds like someone blowing air into a pop bottle. But wait! What is a “sooty” grouse? The blue grouse has been split into two species: dusky and sooty, with our local bird named the “sooty.” You’ll have to visit B.C.’s Interior to ﬁnd a “dusky:” Princeton is a good area. Enjoy the marvelous sounds of spring, like birds, and chorus frogs. Recently, there have been numbers of mourning cloak and Satyr anglewing butterﬂies seen on sunny days. There’s a whole world of nature outdoors waiting for us to enjoy and treasurer at Maplewood. Al Grass is a naturalist with Wild Bird Trust of British Columbia, which sponsors free walks at Maplewood Flats Conservation Area on the second Saturday of every month. The next walk will be the special Dawn Chorus Walk on Saturday, May 18 starting at 6 a.m. — where we will listen for the birds as they greet the new day. Meet at Maplewood Flats, 2645 Dollarton Hwy. (two kilometres east of the Iron Workers Second Narrows Memorial Crossing). Walks go rain or shine. For this time only the parking will be in the parking area to the west of the gate on the south side of the road.

Library launches new pre-K program
Young artist of the week
NORTH Vancouver City Library has launched a new program to help preschoolers get ready for learning. PREPARE aims to foster a love of language and reading by nurturing six core skills and linguistic experiences including print motivation, phonological awareness, vocabulary, narrative skills, print awareness and letter knowledge. During eight-week sessions, starting in May, groups of one parent/ caregiver and one child will be led by a library staff member in various literacy-based activities such as reading books, singing, storytelling, games, crafts and technology exploration. Parents will also get useful tips and at-home practices. A library press release states that, in Canada, one child in four begins kindergarten without the skills needed to learn how to read. The release also says that, according to the Canadian Council on Learning, 48 per cent of Canadians have skills below the internationally accepted standard of literacy required to cope in a modern society. PREPARE sessions are available for babies (age one to two), toddlers (age two to three) and preschoolers (age four to ﬁve). Registration is on a ﬁrstcome, ﬁrst-served basis. Parents can book their space by phoning 604-988-3480, or visiting the library’s children’s information desk at 120 West 14th St.

Youth optimistic about future, survey ﬁnds WE all know that our young people are going to be facing very different challenges than we did when we reached adulthood.
Many of them will be saddled with increasingly large education debt, many will ﬁnd they need more focused training to ﬁnd work and many will be cobbling together Mac-jobs to pay the rent. You would think they would be facing their future with trepidation. But most Canadian teenagers believe
their glass is half full according to a new national survey commissioned by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada and MasterCard Canada. In fact, a majority of Canadian teenagers (57 per cent) believe their quality of life as adults will surpass that of their parents. And while that’s barely a majority, there are also 32 per cent who anticipate their quality of life as adults to be “about the same” as their parents. Only 11 per cent expect their future quality of life to be worse than that of their parents.
Children and young adults tend to play the cards they are dealt. They may have heard the stories about the lives of their parents when they entered adulthood, but that’s just a story. They have also heard about their parents and grandparents facing the wars and the great depression. Now, they have their challenges and generally believe they will survive at least as well as their parents did. The Ipsos Reid study also shows that a strong majority of Canada’s teenagers are community-minded.
Eight in 10 teens (80 per cent) say they are committed to giving back to the community. Additionally, 91 per cent of those surveyed believe young people have much to offer to inﬂuence positive change. However, though they feel they have a lot of positive contributions to make to their communities, many teens felt their ideas go unheard. According to the survey, nearly half of teenagers (44 per cent) believe they are prevented See Today’s page 36

One of the most popular areas to live on the North Shore is also one of the oldest. Somewhere between 1860 and 1870, British Royal Engineer John Lynn settled on a piece of land at the mouth of a North Shore creek that would come to bear his name. Over the next few decades, the population of the North Shore grew and in 1912 a streetcar line was completed to Lynn Valley where Lynn Canyon officially opened as a municipal park.
It’s inournature From it’s early years as a rough and tumble mill town to the modern recreational and residential enclave we know now, the partnership between the natural beauty of the area and the people who have called it home is a source of immense pride for those who live there today.
One of the North Shore’s oldest municipal recreation areas, Lynn Canyon Park with its suspension bridge, temperate forests and network of trails is a favourite destination for visitors and residents alike. Opened over 100 years ago, the park is now also home to the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre.
Designed in the shape of BC’s provincial flower – the Dogwood – the Ecology Centre features displays and demonstrations of North Shore plants, animals and our complex local ecosystem.
Further upstream at the end of Lynn Valley Road, the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park is the largest park in the Metro Vancouver Regional Parks network. From a quiet day’s fishing at Rice Lake to a full-on back country expedition for experienced hikers, Lynn Headwaters has something to offer just about every outdoor enthusiast on its 54 kilometers of trails.

With its pioneer past celebrated in local public spaces, Lynn Valley’s present and future are where the action is – and action hardly begins to cover the range of activities and facilities available.
g n i v Lo ynn L lley Va
The BC Mills House Museum at the park’s entrance is open weekends from Victoria Day until Labour Day and houses fascinating exhibits that explore Lynn Valley’s logging, mining and natural history. One of the best ways to explore Lynn Valley’s wild surroundings is to wander some of the many trails that wind in and around the area. The Varley Trail is named after Group of Seven artist Fred Varley who lived across from the Pipeline Bridge in the 1930s. From any of Lynn Headwaters’three parking lots, this well-maintained 1.5 k boardwalk trail meanders through second-growth rainforest along the west bank of Lynn Creek and is dog-friendly. Further west, the Baden Powell Trail can be accessed at the top of Hoskins Road. Built by Boy Scouts and Girl Guides as a BC Centennial project in 1971, the full trail extends about 48 kilometers between the Quarry Rock Lookout in Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. Dog and bike-friendly, it’s a quick way to leave the city behind and get your nature on. Also in Lynn Valley, the Laura Lynn Equestrian Centre has been providing quality boarding for horses for over 50 years. Resident manager Wendy Cathcart has been on site since 1987 and maintains strong relationships with suppliers and veterinarians to ensure the finest horse care. For more contemporary transport aficionados, the skateboard park at Kirskstone Park near the Karen Magnussen Recreation Centre offers local boarders a chance to work on their chops in a friendly environment.

There’s also a whirlpool and steam room, ice rink, lacrosse box, tennis courts, weight room and meeting facilities. Lynn Valley is also a great place to dine, socialize and share good times. From a leisurely breakfast at Tommy’s or lunch on the patio at Browns’to a get together with friends at the Black Bear Pub or Lynn Valley Legion, you’ll meet some of the nicest folks on the North Shore. In the summer, the weekly concert series on Friday nights in the main square at Lynn Valley Village always attracts great local performers and gives you an excuse to start the weekend out in the fresh air. With its history and natural beauty, there’s a real sense of community shared by those who live here. The annual Lynn Valley Day celebration held each May has been a fixture on the local calendar for over 100 years and looks poised to go for at least another century. If you’re looking for a place to take in all the North Shore has to offer, Lynn Valley is a great place to begin. ■

Weekend kicks off summer Spot prawn season is upon us
Romancing the Stove Angela Shellard
THE Queen’s birthday is celebrated in Canada on May 24.
Deana Lancaster Contributing writer
That day is also the unofﬁcial kickoff to summer; the weekend when gardeners seek out their bedding plants; the patio furniture is uncovered and the barbecue gets its inaugural run of the season. With any luck we’ll be blessed with gorgeous weather on our three days off, but rain or shine here’s a great menu to celebrate the start of this popular season. Be sure to choose ground beef with about 20 per cent fat content for the burgers. Extra lean ground beef makes a dry burger.
WHAT ﬁrst began in 2006 as a valiant, but low-key attempt to introduce Vancouver diners to our own spot prawn ﬁshery has turned into the city’s most delicious celebration of spring.
mixture into six equal-sized balls, then form each ball into a patty slightly larger than the English mufﬁns. Make a shallow indent in one side of each patty (this helps prevent them from pufﬁng up while cooking). Cover the patties and refrigerate for at least
Now, seven years later, spot prawn season is an event, with chefs and diners eagerly awaiting the ﬁrst delivery of fresh prawns, still wriggling and slick with briny ocean water. Up until six years ago, B.C. spot prawns were exported to Japan almost exclusively. It was chef Robert Clark (then of C Restaurant) and ﬁsherman Steve Johansen of Organic Ocean who teamed up to create an event and campaign that would elevate these juicy beauties to a prized place on our local dinner tables for the short six- to eight-week stretch of the commercial spot prawn season. This year, the season opened May 9, and the ﬁrst catch was served that night at Yew Restaurant and Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver. Johansen hauled it in, and Clark collaborated with Yew chef Ned Bell on the menu. The main ingredient was slightly delayed by strong tides, but after their muchcelebrated, and photographed,

arrival, the prawns went straight into the kitchen and then onto our plates. First up, Bell crafted a pretty plate of shelled crustaceans, one raw and one poached, reclining against thick slices of avocado, all set in his Green Goddess dressing. Clark took over for the next course: bright-ﬂavoured “Thai style” pickled spot prawns, studded with mint leaves and
peanuts. He also made an almost impossibly bright green pea soup, swimming with prawn chunks and adorned with a crispy slice of prosciutto. The main course was back to Bell, and it was his version of “surf and surf”: cooked prawns nestled against a tender wedge of halibut, served with a crunchy kale Caesar salad. On Saturday, the prawns got a less elegant, but no less delicious party, at the B.C. Spot

Prawn Festival at Fisherman’s Wharf by Granville Island. Highlights included the Spot Prawn Boil, cooking demos by local chefs, free entertainment and kids’ activities, and a long line to buy spot prawns fresh off the boats. The best news is that the season has only just started. You can head to the same spot at the wharf to buy your own spot prawns right from those who catch them for $12 per pound for the next for six to eight weeks; spot prawn boats arrive daily around 1 p.m. Or look for them at your favourite ﬁshmonger. (Remember to eat them the same day, or to take off the heads and store them on ice. They’ll turn mushy otherwise.) Or look for them on the menu at your favourite North Shore restaurants. The Beach House in West Van is serving pan-seared spot prawns and scallops over vermicelli and jicama salad tossed with fresh pineapple, tomato, and grilled corn. The season is short, so dig in and enjoy! ••• The ﬁve courses of that spectacular spot prawn dinner were thoughtfully matched with wine pairings by Yew sommelier
Emily Walker. Among her picks: the lively Kurtis Semillon, a luscious Alsatian Muscat from Zind Humbrecht, a Cab Franc rosé from Tinhorn Creek, and with the halibut and prawns: Terralsole Rosso de Montalcino from Tuscany, and Toppiano Pinot Noir from California. Now Walker is adding a new venture to her resumé, called Wineshare. She has teamed up with Vancouver Urban Winery to create Vancouver’s ﬁrst custom winemaking project that gives wine lovers an opportunity to be involved in the planning, harvest, production and branding of their own wine. This handson, personal winemaking experience for amateur vintners uses premium fruit from the region and is led by professional winemakers, right in the heart of Vancouver.

Cut the ends off the pineapple, then stand it on one end and cut off the peel, cutting deep enough to remove the eyes. Cut the pineapple into quarters and cut out the core. Reserve half the pineapple for another use (upside-down cake?). Cut each of the two remaining quarters into three or four slices lengthwise; cut each of those slices in half (you’ll have 12 or 16 thin wedges). Place a bamboo skewer through each piece. Turn the caramel sauce into a bowl and stir in the rum until well combined. With a pastry brush, coat each pineapple wedge lightly with caramel sauce. Grill on a 450-degree grill just until grill marks appear, then turn to mark the other side, about four to ﬁve minutes total cooking time. Remove to a serving platter; sprinkle with toasted coconut and serve remaining caramel sauce alongside for dipping. Makes four to six servings.

Today’s teens set to inﬂuence change From page 24
from making a difference simply because no one listens to them. BBBSC in partnership with MasterCard is attempting to change that. Though they might not tell you, teens do look to adults as role models within the community. The survey reveals that teenagers generally have a sophisticated understanding of the connection between community service and role models. Almost nine in 10 (89 per cent) believe that teens with a parent or adult mentor who sets a strong example of community service are more likely to become socially engaged than those without role models. “Parents across Canada should take great pride in these ﬁndings,” says Bruce MacDonald, president and CEO of BBBSC. “Eighty-four per cent of those surveyed report that they have positive role models who have proven to them that individuals can make a difference through their actions. This speaks to the quality of parenting in Canada and the power of mentoring to inspire young people to become socially engaged.” This optimism, however, is tempered by the fact that two in three teenagers (66 per cent) feel highly pressured and stressed about life after high school. Other interesting ﬁndings include: Half (51 per cent) of the teenagers surveyed are
optimistic about Canada’s future, while 35 per cent are unsure. Nineteen per cent are pessimistic about the country’s future. More than eight in 10 (84 per cent) are conﬁdent in their ability to meet whatever challenges the future brings. Eighty-two per cent have faith in their ability to inﬂuence positive change. Nine in ten (91 per cent) think that social engagement is important to improving our quality of life. When it comes to responsibility for positive social change, the majority of teenagers believe that social media has an important role to play. “Fifty-six per cent of the teenagers think that social media organizations are responsible, along with governments, corporations and educators, for building a better future,” notes MacDonald. “Today’s teenagers appear set to put their generation’s unique stamp on inﬂuencing change.” Our job is to be positive role models for our children, to mentor our teens and support them in their quest for a responsible and successful adult life.

Healthy heroes crowned at NV spring event
THE Move More on the Shore program, Table Matters food security network, and two individuals — Heera Chung and Eun-gyung Lim — were recipients of 2013 Healthy Community Hero Awards, presented by representatives of the Active North Shore Network at Saturday’s Lonsdale Spring Celebration.
The Active North Shore Network was formed to improve community awareness
of and access to active living and healthy eating and to inspire those who work, play and live on the North Shore to achieve healthier, more balanced lives. Network members and sponsors include local municipalities, school districts, recreation departments, Vancouver Coastal Health, businesses, and media partners. According to a press release, the Healthy Community Hero Award is an annual honour intended to recognize local organizations and individuals working to support one or more of the network’s three pillars, which include active living, healthy eating and living

The purpose of the program is to foster increased physical activity and healthy eating to decrease disease. ■ The Table Matters food security network supports the healthy eating pillar of Active North Shore by taking action to improve access to healthy, local food. The network encourages and provides support to a wide variety of food-related activities, including beekeeping and community gardens. It holds events regularly to build knowledge and skills about local food. Most recently, the network has drafted a food charter with the hope that it will be approved by the three
municipalities and will serve as a guiding document to decisions that impact food on the North Shore. The network is comprised of more than 200 individuals, representatives from non-proﬁt organizations and businesses, staff from all three North Shore municipalities, and Vancouver Coastal Health. Table Matters invites anyone with an interest in healthy eating to join the network. ■ Heera Chung and Eungyung Lim emigrated from Korea and have been leaders in a Korean women’s walking group for the past four years as part of the North Shore Immigrant Women’s Active
Living Program. The number of women who walk in their group ranges from seven to 25 on any given Tuesday and they walk rain or shine, wind or sleet. They explore a wide variety of trails on the North Shore and encourage newcomers, family and friends to join them. They have created a support network and opportunity for women to be physically active together, meet new friends and feel a sense of connection with their community.

ruck hard, but neither team would be saying, ‘Wow, that was a fantastic game of open rugby’ (after) that ﬁrst one.” Each team has talent and history on their side. Rockridge, aside from their one hiccup against Collingwood, has been destroying everyone in their path this season on the way to ﬁnishing ﬁrst in the Lower Mainland league and earning a berth in the ﬁnal. The Ravens haven’t won a provincial title since 2010 — that’s considered a drought for Rockridge — but this year they appear to be one of the teams to beat. “Having played them over and over again, I don’t think there’s ever been a weak Rockridge team since they came into this level of rugby,” said Speirs with a laugh. “With the scores they’ve put up we know that they’ve got a pretty darn good backline. They’ve got a lot of talent out wide, they’ve got really good halfbacks. They pretty much have a very balanced team, forwards and backs.” This year’s New Zealand Shield ﬁnal will come down to who controls the ball while making the fewest mistakes, said Speirs. “In a game like this where the two teams should be really even it’ll come down to who can keep the ball in hand the most. If we have the ball then we’re a very good team. If we’re playing defence all the time, if Rockridge has the ball and they can maintain it, it’ll be a difﬁcult day for us.” Collingwood, like Rockridge, had just one defeat during the regular season, a 15-12 loss to Hugh McRoberts in Richmond
This is the Windsor secondary girls soccer team. The senior girls soccer team. And hey, they’re undefeated and one win away from the provincial championships. “This for us was a development year,” said Greg Hockley with a chuckle. He’s Windsor secondary’s vice principal and co-head coach of the senior team along with Bob Donoghue. “We knew they were going to be a good team but I didn’t even expect them to be . . . I mean, they’ve been undefeated this year. They haven’t lost a game. When you can take a nucleus of eight players that are starting that are in Grade 10 or 9 and play them against all the top senior teams and go undefeated, you know you’ve had a good year.” That Grade 9 sniper who is scoring all the goals is Emma Pringle. “She’s had multiple hat trick games,” said Hockley. The Grade 10 goalie, a cocaptain, is Courtney Whittred. Pushing the pace in the middle of the ﬁeld is co-captain Pauline McCordic — she’s a grizzled old vet, already in Grade 11. They may be young but that didn’t hold them back this season. The Dukes raced to the top of the tough North Shore AA league, winning ﬁve games in regulation and one in a shootout to easily score ﬁrst place.

THE last time the powerhouse senior AA rugby teams from Rockridge and Collingwood met it was a messy affair played during the height of the West Coast’s annual springtime mud up.
“It was in the midst of the monsoon season,” said Collingwood head coach David Speirs, whose Cavaliers won the game 13-10, handing Rockridge their only loss of the regular season. The Ravens and Cavs will meet again under, hopefully, much nicer conditions Thursday at Stanley Park’s Brockton Oval with the New Zealand Shield, awarded annually to the Lower Mainland champion, on the line. Coach Speirs is expecting a very different type of game this time around. “It was a very messy game — it was rainy, the ball was really slippery. I don’t think you could tell much about Rockridge from that game because neither team was running the ball very well. I don’t think they could tell much about us either. We both know that there’s a lot of people who like to tackle and hit hard and

WEST Vancouver’s Capilano Golf and Country Club will play host to some of North America’s top amateur golfers during the Paciﬁc Coast Amateur scheduled for July 2326.

The tournament includes a team competition known as the Morse Cup that pits three-man teams from member associations, including British Columbia Golf, against each other. The tournament was last held in British Columbia in 2003 when Capilano also played host and Abbotsford’s James Lepp won the title. ••• West Vancouver’s Janet McLachlan was named Wheelchair Basketball’s female athlete of the year at the organization’s annual banquet held April 13 in Montreal.

Dukes stay cool in shootout
From page 45
That position, however, doesn’t mean a whole lot when there’s only one provincial berth on the line for all of the teams from the North Shore and Burnaby. Windsor’s ﬁrst place showing earned them a must-win playoff semiﬁnal date against Sutherland Monday night. The teams traded chances but no one could come up with the decisive blow through regulation time and 15 minutes of overtime. “Both teams were unlucky not to score on multiple chances,” said Hockley. “I’d say both teams had ﬁve or six top quality chances to score and both keepers and defences were on the ball.” With the season hanging in the balance the game went to the dreaded shootout. No problem for the young Dukes, however, as they scored on four straight shots while Whittred made a pair of nice saves to make it 4-2. Hockley credited Whittred as game MVP but added his shooters were super cool under pressure — not because they were too young to know any better, rather they were too conﬁdent to miss.
“I think they’ve been well coached in the community, they play high-level soccer and they’re very good under pressure — I don’t think it’s their naivety,” he said. “Anyone in soccer knows that it’s not necessarily the skill level in PKs, it’s the ability to handle pressure. . . . For our Grade 9s and 10s to be able to step up and handle pressure like that in a senior game, I was so impressed with that.” The Dukes still have one more hurdle to clear and it’s a big one. Waiting for them in today’s ﬁnal will be the Seycove Seyhawks, last year’s provincial champions who ﬁnished second behind Windsor in the North Shore league this season. “Our team is a bit more youthful and upcoming and their team won provincials last year so they have a bit more experience to draw on — I like our chances but I’d say it’s going to be a very tight game,” said Hockley. “We know them very well. We’ve played them, the girls all know each other, they’re from the same area, they play on the same club teams. . . . It’s a very See Defending page 49

in April. The Cavaliers got their shot at revenge last Friday when they faced McRoberts again in the Lower Mainland semiﬁnals. Things didn’t go well early, however, as the Cavs gave up a try less than a minute into the game. “45 seconds might be generous,” said Speirs. “It might have been 30 seconds that we were down 7-0. Basically they had a kid run through three tackles and off they went.” That, however, was the end of the scoring for McRoberts as Collingwood stiffened up their defence while letting loose their attackers en route to a 38-7 win. The poor start led to a little hand wringing but Speirs said the Collingwood side remained upbeat.

MCLEOD, Donna Constance Oct. 27, 1924 - April 27, 2013
Beloved Mother, Nini, Aunt, Mother in law, Friend and Fellow Traveler. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Donna Constance McLeod. With the love of family, friends and her daughter at her side she left to be 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' to join her husband of 56 years, Daryl. She is predeceased by her parents William (Smokey) and Jennie (Tiny) Pennicott and brother Frank Pennicott. She leaves behind: her daughter Cindy, son in law Richard, Grandchildren: Jennifer (Brad), Quintin, Maddysyn and Dawsen, Daryl’s brother Ron (Mary) and many nieces and nephews. Donna was born in North Vancouver and lived on the North Shore her entire life as she loved the water and she was always close to the beaches. She had the occasion to go up the Coast to logging camps in her younger years with her parents and she also went on many an adventure with Daryl. She valued the support and care she received from her family and friends over the years and she in turn, when need be, was their pillar of strength. Donna had a strong sense of self and as Frankie would sing ' She did it her way'. Her family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all that knew and loved her.
